Absolutely! How much time do we have left? Probably between seven and ten years. • Could it be longer? Yes, but it’s not likely. 1THE FINAL SEVEN YEARS WILL BEGIN WHEN THE ANTICHRIST AND THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY GIVE THEIR SUPPORT TO ISRAEL’S RIGHT TO EXIST IN THE LAND PROMISED TO ABRAHAM BY GOD. THIS IS CALLED THE CONFIRMATION OF THE COVENANT (DANIEL 9:27 & GENESIS 15:18). Israeli Prime Minister has openly stated that the number one goal of his administration is to obtain the support of the international community for ISRAEL’S FINAL BORDERS. He hopes to achieve this by the end of 2008. 2A WAR WILL BEGIN FROM THE VICINITY OF THE EUPHRATES RIVER (REVELATION 9:13-16). Most of the Euphrates River is in Iraq. The United States has 140,000 troops STATIONED ALONG THE EUPHRATES at this time. The conflict between the U.S. and Islamic Fundamentalism is not diminishing, but increasing around the world. 3THE WEST BANK (JUDEA) IN ISRAEL WILL BECOME A PLACE OF GREAT TRIBULATION (MATTHEW 24:15-21). Ehud Olmert has openly said that he will withdraw from the West Bank (Judea) by the end of 2008. Then, recently, he announced that his convergence-withdrawal plan is off — “NO LONGER RELEVANT.” Whether or not Israel withdraws, the prophecy is clear that there will be slaughter in Judea. 4THE TEMPLE MOUNT IN JERUSALEM WILL BE PLACED UNDER A SHARING ARRANGEMENT BETWEEN JEW AND GENTILE (REVELATION 11:1-2). President Clinton suggested the SHARING OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT in July of 2000. It is generally believed this is the only possible solution to the Temple Mount dispute whenever the issue is finally resolved. 5THE JEWISH TEMPLE WILL BE BUILT ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT (REVELATION 11:1-2 & 2 THESSALONIANS 2:3-4). All the furniture for ISRAEL’S THIRD TEMPLE is now complete; Israel has her long-sought-for red heifer, which is needed before the re-establishment of temple worship; and in June of 2005, the newly re-born Sanhedrin announced they were proceeding with building the temple. They intend to pre-fabricate it off-site. 6THETEMPLEMOUNTWILLBEPLACEDUNDERTHESUPERVISION OF THE WORLD COMMUNITY AND THE LEADER OF THE WORLD COMMUNITY, THE ANTICHRIST, WILL STAND ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT, CLAIMING TO BE GOD (2 THESSALONIANS 2:3-4). The Temple Mount will be placed under the supervision of the world community and the leader of the world community, THE ANTICHRIST, will stand on the Temple Mount, claiming to be God (2Thessalonians2:3-4).EhudBarak,IsraeliPrimeMinisterintheyear 2000, suggested placing the Temple Mount UNDER UN CONTROL in order to make a sharing of the Temple Mount possible. When the UN takes control of the Temple Mount, the leader of the world government will feel justified in claiming ultimate authority there. 7A WORLD GOVERNMENT WILL DOMINATE THE WORLD FOR THREE AND ONE-HALF YEARS PRIOR TO ARMAGEDDON (DANIEL 7:23 & REVELATION 13:7). The nations of the world are increasingly recognizing the authority of INTERNATIONAL LAW. We now have the World Bank, the World Trade Organization, the World Health Organization and the World Court—just to name a few. We have a World Court to adjudicate the international laws of the emerging world government. 8EACH PERSON ON EARTH WILL BE REQUIRED TO HAVE A MARK OR A NUMBER IN ORDER TO BUY OR SELL (REVELATION 13:16-18). On May 11, 2005, President Bush signed the REAL ID ACT. The law requires that every American must have a national ID card by May 11, 2008. Without this card, a person will not be able to hold a job or open a bank account. Without a job or a bank account, how much buying and selling will an individual be able to do? Oh, by the way, you can’t get your card without giving your number…your social security number. 9THE WORLD COMMUNITY, LED BY RUSSIA AND IRAN, WILL INVADE THE NATION OF ISRAEL (ZECHARIAH 14:2-4 & EZEKIEL 38 & 39). Iran (Persia) and Russia (Meshech—root word for Moscovi or Moscow) are NOW IN ALLIANCE. Iran is the leading advocate of “wiping Israel off the map.” Nine specific prophecies in the Bible will occur within the final seven years prior to the Battle of Armageddon. By examining these prophecies, we can get a sense of how close we are to Armageddon. BY IRVIN BAXTER JR.
  • 5. ENDTIMEMAGAZINE | July - August 2007 5 m a g a z i n e EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Irvin Baxter EDITORIAL ASSISTANT Ginger Boerkircher RESEARCH Craig Treadwell PARTNER RELATIONS Jana Robbins CONFERENCE DIRECTOR Kara McPeak INTERNET David Novick GRAPHIC DESIGN RRDonnelley, Omega Studios STATEMENT OF FAITH We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, and that He will come again to establish a kingdom that shall never be destroyed (Daniel 2:44). Those who are born again (John 3:3–5) will have eternal life and rule as kings and priests with Christ forever. WHAT IS ENDTIME? In 1968, Irvin Baxter Jr. discovered the United States and other modern nations in the Bible. He also found the Berlin Wall in the Bible and that one day it was to be torn down, re-uniting Germany, and that event would be the catalyst to spark an international movement called the “New World Order.” These things have now come to pass. Irvin Baxter Jr., a Pentecostal minister, began Endtime Ministries in 1986 when he wrote A MessageForThePresident,abookexplaining the major prophecies of the Bible which he had been teaching since 1968. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, prophetic fulfillment accelerated rapidly. The decision was made to launch Endtime magazine. The purpose of the magazine is to explain the prophecies of the Bible and to show that they are now being fulfilled in intricate detail. Articles focus on the soon return of Jesus Christ, the truth of the Bible, and the need for salvation. Endtime does not deal with doctrinal controversies, as valid as they may be. This will be left to other publications. Endtime is published bi-monthly by Endtime, Inc., 449 Kingsbridge Drive, Garland, TX 75040. Subscription price is $ 29 for 12 issues. © 2007 Endtime, Inc.

DO YOU WRITE ABOUT ENDTIME PROPHECY? Endtime magazine invites you to submit your article for consideration for publication.

ALL SUBMISSIONS BECOME THE PROPERTY OF ENDTIME AND CANNOT BE RETURNED. Since the last edition of Endtime magazine, a tremendous victory was achieved with the defeat of the Immigration Bill and its provision for putting every American into a national database. For in- depth insight into how this happened and why, see Immigration Bill Autopsy in this edition of Endtime. While basking in this wonderful victory, it is importantthatwerealizethe Real ID Act is still law and is waiting to be implemented. We must not rest until this national ID is defeated and forever consigned to the dustbin of history. The appointment of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair as special envoy of the international community to the Middle East is a cover story in its own right. The possibility that this could lead to the prophesied confirmation of the covenant is huge in its prophetic implications. But don’t forget Iraq Thoughnosignificantspaceinthisissueof Endtime has been devoted to the Iraqi War, we would be remiss if we did not continue to sound the alarm concerning this mother of all prophecies. The attention of the United States continues to be focused on this war, and rightly so. The prophecy says that a war will emanate from the area of the Euphrates River (70% of which is in Iraq). The prophecy states that one-third of the human race will be wiped out as a result of this war, and it’s almost certain that the U.S. will be involved in this war since we are the one nation with the necessary fire-power to kill two billion human beings. Pressure continues to build on President Bush to either win or get out of Iraq soon. The president has said repeatedly that he believes it will be a disaster if the United States leaves Iraq in defeat. But what will our enemies do if we pull out all the stops and go for victory? The question is not if one-third of mankind will die as a result of a war beginning from the area of the Euphrates River. That is specifically prophesied and is sure to happen. The only question is whether this present conflict will plunge the world into that war. We at Endtime Ministries believe the answer to that question is probably yes and that it will come to pass sooner rather than later. Believing this, we are mobilizing as never before to reach the entire world with the message that “The Endtime is Now” and that “The Second Coming of Jesus is just ahead.” Please join with us in this last great effort to reach the world before it is too late! ■ Don’t forget Iraq o h b if Ir o o v o w b

The threat has also led the White Housetobeginweeklymeetingswithsenior officials. A reliable source gave intelligence that a small group of al-Qaeda terrorists was headed to the United States from Pakistan. TAIWAN TO HOLD STREET MARCH TO DEMAND RIGHT TO JOIN UN Taiwan is to hold a street march in the capital Taipei early this fall to demand the right to join the United Nations. The march is to show that Taiwan has the right to hold a referendum on whether to join the UN under the name of “Taiwan.” Taiwan’s President Chen Shui-bian plans to hold the referendum in March of next year. CHINA ARMING TERRORISTS New intelligence shows that China is covertly supplying large amounts of small arms and weapons to insurgents in Iraq and the Taliban militia in Afghanistan, through Iran. The Washington Times reported that the Taliban was using Chinese-made HN-5 anti-aircraft missiles. US:“IRREFUTABLE”PROOF IRAN ARMS TALIBAN The United States says it has “irrefutable” evidence that Iran is transferring weapons to the Taliban in Afghanistan. According to a senior US diplomat, NATO has intercepted some of the shipments. The UN Security Council is debating a third set of sanctions against the Islamic republic. PENTAGON REPORT ON CHINA’S MILITARY DEVELOPMENTS In its annual report, the Pentagon said the People’s Liberation Army is building a greater capacity to launch pre-emptive strikes. China has acquired long-endurance submarines, unmanned combat aircraft and additional precision-guided air-to-ground missiles. China’s long-range aim is to “revise the existing balance of power in the world.” IRAN’S SECRET PLAN FOR OFFENSIVE TO FORCE US OUT OF IRAQ According to US officials, Iran is forging ties with al-Qaida and Sunni Arab militias in preparation for a showdown with coalition forces in order to tip the wavering US Congress into voting for full military withdrawal. US commander General David Petraeus will be giving a report to Congress in September on President Bush’s six-month security “surge” of 30,000-troop reinforcement. BUSH AUTHORIZES NEW COVERT ACTION AGAINST IRAN The CIA has received secret presidential approvaltomountacovert“black”operation to destabilize the Iranian government. Sources say President Bush signed a “nonlethal presidential finding” that puts into motion a CIA plan that includes a campaign of propaganda, disinformation and manipulation of Iran’s currency and international financial transactions. EU WATCH EU LEADERS SCRAPE TREATY DEAL AT 11TH HOUR After a marathon round of talks, a triumphant Angela Merkel, German chancellor, announced that a deal has been struck and that Europe will be able to move out of the “reflection” phase it has been in since the draft EU constitution was rejected two years ago. A new treaty is to be in place and ratified in all member states by mid- 2009. The EU will get a new foreign minister - or High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy - and a permanent president. PUSH FOR BLAIR AS NEW EU PRESIDENT British Prime Minister Tony Blair could end up swapping Downing Street for a job as the first full-time European Union president. Nicolas Sarkozy, the French president, has been discussing the idea with EU leaders. But Blair has denied interest in the job. OECD SAYS EUROPEAN GROWTH TO OVERTAKE US According to the OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development), The eurozone will take over from the US as the driver of world economic growth in 2007. A strong performance by Germany is giving Europe the edge. “Europe [is] taking over the baton from the United States,” OECD chief economist Jean-Philippe Cotis said. TOP EU DIPLOMAT JAVIER SOLANA RECEIVES CHARLEMAGNE PRIZE Javier Solana, 64, the European Union’s top foreign-policy official, was presented with the Charlemagne Prize. Solana said he valued the award more than a Nobel Prize. The Charlemagne Prize was created in 1949 to honor service to European unity.

BIG BROTHER’S WATCHING: SECRET CCTV BUNKER MONITORS OUR EVERY MOVE Britainhasmorethan4millionclosed-circuit securitycameras,andaccordingtopolice,the average Briton is on as many as 300 cameras every day, usually without their knowledge. According to The Spectator, a conservative magazine, “We are sleepwalking towards a Big Brother society, not in one fell swoop but by stages.” REAL ID DATABASE SECURITY The controversial 2005 Real ID Act calls for the standardization of driver’s licenses. Criticssaythelawcouldcreateprivacyissues andincreasetheriskofidentitytheft.Theact requires states to collect and electronically store personal information a national database by linking states‘ databases together. But according to Bruce Schneier, chief technology officer at BT Counterpane Internet Security Inc., “Computer scientists don’t know how to keep a database of this magnitude secure.” WOULD AN IMPLANTED CHIP KEEP A CHILD SAFE? After the horrific snatch of three-year-old MadeleineMcCannfromherbedinPortugal, every type of child monitoring device is in demand. Professor Kevin Warwick, who developed the technology for the first child to be“chipped”in 2002, is being bombarded with e-mails from parents desperate to keep tabs on their children. DO CHIP IMPLANTS PROTECT OR VIOLATE PRIVACY? Alzheimer’s Community Care in West Palm Beach, Florida, an adult-care facil- ity, is going ahead with plans to implant identity chips into patients with Alzheimer’s disease. The radio frequency identification chip will be implanted with the consent of their families or the patients themselves if they are deemed competent. Each chip will contain a unique 16-digit number. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has ap- proved RFID implants. MIDDLE EAST WATCH OLMERT ALLOWS MUSLIMS TO DIG ON TEMPLE MOUNT Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has quietly grantedtheMuslimcustodiansoftheTemple Mount permission to dig unsupervised on the sacred site. The permission was granted in spite of longstanding fears that the Muslims might hide or dispose of Jewish Temple artifacts. REPORT: IAF PREPARING FOR IRAN STRIKE The Israeli Air Force (IAF) is training on long- range flights in preparation for potential strikes against Iranian nuclear targets. The training program has been taking place for some time. Intelligence assessments received by the defense establishment agree that once Iran passes the point of no returninitsnuclearefforts,theentireMiddle East will enter a nuclear armament race. ‘EU WOULD CONSIDER GAZA MILITARY ROLE’ The United Nations decided to immediately scale back its operations in the Gaza Strip after two Palestinians who worked for a UN agency were killed. In light of the increase in factional violence, the European Union said it would consider participating in an international force in Gaza. ISRAELI SPY SATELLITE BEGINS TRANSMITTING IMAGES FROM SPACE Israel’s new spy satellite has begun transmittingimagesfromspace.HaimEshed, Israel’s chief of the Defense Ministry’s space program, suggested the satellite could be used to gather information on Iran’s nuclear program. Information gathered is being shared with the United States. TEMPLE MOUNT CONTROVERSY CONTINUES Record numbers of Jews are still ascending the Temple Mount since a large group of religious-Zionist rabbis issued a public call to visit Judaism‘s holiest site. On Jerusalem Day, for the first time in recent history, multiple groups of 40 or more Jews were allowed to ascend the Temple Mount. WORLD GOVERNMENT TEN EU FMS CALL FOR INTERNATIONAL FORCE IN PA According to ten EU foreign ministers, Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair should study the idea of an international force to patrol the Palestinian territories.The ministersfeelthattheQuartet’sroadmaphas failed, and that the possibility of a “robust international force,”should be studied. BAN KI-MOON CALLED ON GLOBAL COMPACT LEADERS TO CHART FUTURE COURSE Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged action on climate change and other shared international concerns at the Global Compact Leaders Summit. The summit consisted of a group of business leaders, government ministers, and heads of civil societygroupscommittedtoUnitedNations principles. QUARTET SEEKS TO REVIVE PEACE TALKS AFTER GAZA EVENTS The “Quartet” (US, EU, UN and Russia) of international Middle East negotiators searched for ways to revive peace talks after the Hamas takeover of the Gaza Strip. The appointment of Tony Blair as the Quartet’s envoy to the Middle East is the latest step in a sudden burst of diplomacy. TEXAS GOVERNOR CLEARS WAY FOR NAFTA SUPERHIGHWAY The path appeared to be cleared for the state of Texas to begin building the new Trans-Texas Corridor. The project, that will run along Interstate 35 from Mexico to the Oklahoma border, looked to be enabled when Texas Gov. Rick Perry vetoed a series of proposals the Texas Legislature assembled to slow down the work on what is considered to be a key link in a continental NAFTA superhighway network. DENVER TARGETS GLOBAL WARMING Denver, Colorado has geared up to fight global warming. The city will be asking Residents to make personal sacrifices to help save the planet. Denver wants to be a national leader in reducing gas emissions. BUSH GRANTS PRESIDENCY EXTRAORDINARY POWERS President Bush has signed a directive granting extraordinary powers to the office of the president in the event of a declared national emergency.

The religious leader called the Senate prayer “an illustrious day for all Americans and a memorable day for Indian Americans when opening prayers from ancient Hindu scriptures will be read in the great hall of democracy.” POPE’S LATIN MASS PUSH MAY REVIVE PRAYER FOR JEWS A prayer for the conversion of the Jews sidelined from Roman Catholic liturgy in the 1960s may stage a surprise comeback. PopeBenedictisexpectedtoallowbroader use of the old Latin Mass. Church reforms in the 1960s had replaced Latin with local languages in the liturgy. POPE RESTORES COUNCIL FOR INTER-RELIGIOUS DIALOGUE The Pope has reestablished the autonomy of the Pontifical Council for Inter Religious Dialogue, with chief of the Vatican Archives and Library Archbishop Jean-Louis Tauran. The restoration of the Council is being seen as Pope Benedict XVI’s aspiration to increase dialogue with other religions, and particularly with Islam. CHURCHES WORLDWIDE MOBILIZED FOR PEACE IN PALESTINE, ISRAEL Churches around the globe began assembling to push for new actions to end the Palestine-Israel conflict. Member churches and related organizations of the World Council of Churches (WCC) marked the 1967 Arab-Israeli war by praying, holding seminars and advocacy campaigns for seven days. BLAIR PLANS TO ENCOURAGE INTER- FAITH COOPERATION Tony Blair plans to act as an ambassador for multi-faith dialogue in Britain and abroad.

I am ready to “stand up” against this Real ID Act and any politician who refuses to sign an affidavit against it. I am ready to open my mouth, stand up onmyfeetandgoaboutthebusinessof stopping this, but I have one question. Please help me understand how all of us could ever stop prophecy? God has made it clear that there will be a mark needed to buy and sell and that anyone taking the mark will not go to heaven. So, isn’t it a wasted effort and focus to try to stop this? Wouldn’t informing America be a better focus? Please help me to understand. - Lisa REPLY | You are correct that the prophecies of the Bible cannot be stopped. EndtimeMinistriesisnottrying to stop prophecy. Rather, our mission is to see as many people born again as possiblebeforethe6thand7thtrumpets sound. Daniel 11:40-45 informs us that during the Great Tribulation there will be nations on earth which will oppose the Antichrist and his global government. We want the United States to be one of the nations which fights the Antichrist and his mark of the beast system. The very fact that taking the mark will cause someone to be lost is reason enough to fight it. Even though the mark of the beast will be world- wide, it will still boil down to individual choice. Endtime’s goal is to educate and influence as many individuals as possible to choose to refuse the mark. Q. While watching your video, “Signs of the 2nd Coming,” I noticed those numbers on the wall at the UN Summit Meeting. What do they (the UN) use the number 666 for and what do they mean to them? It seemed so strange to see them on the wall - Ann REPLY | The 6’s on the wall at the summitmeetingwereactuallythe6from the number 60. This meeting was held at the 60th anniversary of the United Nations. The UN had pictures on the wall commemorating this event. That said; it was quite interesting that the press photos made it look like 666 was placed behind the heads of the quartet members….especially since their activities are so tied to end time events. Q.I was reading an article online about the Governor of California being PM Blair’s last official visitor before he stepped down. In this article, there was a small paragraph about Mr. Blair becoming a Middle East envoy that caught my eye. It states that his office will be located in Jerusalem. In addition, Mr. Blair recentlymetwith the Pope. What do you think? -Dale REPLY | There’s no doubt that these events are driving us toward the confirmation of the covenant. Blair wants to concentrate on the Middle East and interreligious dialogue. This is quite a prophetic combination. Blair having his headquarters in Jerusalem is another extremely interesting detail. We are definitely moving closer and closer to the culmination of all things! Q. Will the antichrist uproot three kings before or after the confirmation of the covenant? - Lloyd REPLY|TheBibledoesnottellusexactly when the Antichrist will uproot the three kings, so it’s not possible to say with certainty. We do know for certain that it will happen. My opinion? Scripture says that the ten kings receive power as kings one hour with the beast. I tend to think that the Antichrist will probably uproot the three kings after the confirmation of the covenant. Can I absolutely prove it? No.
  • 10. CRAIG TREADWELL IS THE CO-HOST OF POLITICS AND RELIGION RADIO. DAVE NOVICK IS A SENIOR MANAGER OF OPERATIONS AT ENDTIME MINISTRIES. KEVIN RITZI IS THE DIRECTOR OF IT AT ENDTIME MINISTRIES. Q. Do you think that any of the seals of the Book of Revelation have been broken? If so, what in history did they represent? I started thinking about the end times when a buddy of mine at work introduced the “Left Behind” series and your radio program to me. The way things have been going on; I think we are a year or so into the last 7 years. What do you think? - Stephan REPLY | Probably the best way to answer your questions is to point you to some of our material that is available for viewing and listening online. All of our Understanding the Endtime Levels 1, 2, and 3 are available on the internet. You can download MP3s of these lessons at http://www.endtime.com/audio.asp or view the video lessons at http://www. endtime.com/videos2.asp. If you don’t have time for the entire three series, here are some specific lessons that deal with your questions: • Regarding the 7 seals, I would recommend Lesson 4 of Understanding the Endtime Level 1. • Regarding the final 7 years, I would recommend “The Final Seven Years,” which is also available online.. Q. Have you heard any news about drilling for oil in the area of the Dead Sea? Someone made a comment about it as if it was a real fact and I just thought you might have some information on it. -Vernon REPLY | Different companies have drilled for oil in Israel. To my knowledge no one has struck oil to this point. There have been rumors, but I have not been able to verify those rumors. We were just at the Dead Sea in May and didn’t see any activity at all. Q. I was wondering when you think the Rapture is going to occur. A lot of people seem to think that 2007 is the year that we will be caught up with our Lord in the air. Do you feel that this is true or do you think it is still away off? -Joshua REPLY | Jesus’ description of end time events, given in Matthew 24, gives a clear sequence of what must take place before the Rapture. Verse 15 speaks about the abomination of desolation. This is followed in verse 21 by the great tribulation. In verse 29, Jesus speaks of the sun and moon being darkened, the starsfallingfromheaven,andthepowers of the heavens being shaken. It is only after these events that He speaks of His return, and of the gathering of the Elect – the Rapture. Although events leading up to the abomination of desolation are certainly in progress, it does not appear that the abomination of desolation or any of these other events has happened yet. Therefore, it seems very unlikely that the Rapture will occur in 2007. Q. Thank you for posting the videos and lessons online, I have thoroughly enjoyed them. I have never had such an intense study on these particular books before, so it has been a joy! I wish there was a way to save the videos to my computer because they would play much better as a saved file as opposed to a streaming file. At any rate, thank you!

  • 11. Mr. Immigration Autopsy Why did he die?Senator Harry Reid: I just don’t get it. I thought Americans had become more progressive than that. After all our hard work…and now it’s all down the drain. Senator Ted Kennedy:“It was anti-amnesty that did it. So many of the American people are still negative, narrow-minded and prejudiced. They just don’t want immigrants in our country.” Reid: There’s Senator Jeff Sessions. I can’t believe he’s even at the funeral. He didn’t care anything about Mr. Immigration. Kennedy:“Hello Senator Sessions. I’m a little surprised to see you here,”Senator Kennedy chided. Sessions:“Actually Senator. We just received the results of the autopsy. I thought some of you might be interested in knowin’ what caused the death.” Reid: As a matter of fact, we are interested. We were just puzzling over it when you walked in. You know, we tried so hard to come up with a solution for this humongous illegal immigrant problem we’ve got—only to be shot down! We pretty well concluded that it had to be‘ol anti-amnesty that took Mr. Immigration down. To us, it’s pretty obvious. Kennedy: We’ve decided there’s more racism left in this country than we thought. It’s a cryin’shame, too. It’s almost like some of the senators have never heard of globalization. The old outdated concepts of nationalism are relics of the 20th century. All the world is now interdependent, and the move into global governance is inevitable…with us all breathin’ the same air and drinkin’the same water, you know. Reid: So we already pretty much concluded what Mr. Immigration’s autopsy would reveal. Is that what you came to tell us, Senator Sessions? Sessions: Actually, no. Mr. Immigration didn’t die of anti-amnesty, like most of the news media has reported. As the doctors were analyzing the cause of death, they remembered that Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison’s anti-amnesty amendment tried to kill Mr. Immigration, but it wasn’t successful. Remember…her“Return Home”amendment, as it was called, required all illegal immigrants to go home and then come back into the U.S. legally. But it was voted down. No. Believe it or not, Mr. Immigration didn’t die from anti-amnesty. Reid: You know Senator Kennedy, as much as I hate to admit it, Senator Sessions has a point. If anti-amnesty were going to kill the bill, it would have happened when Senator Hutchison’s amendment hit the floor. Kennedy: I somewhat see what you’re saying. But if it wasn’t anti- amnesty that took Ol’Immi down, then what in the world was it? Did they figure it out? Sessions: Fortunately, the doctors were able to determine the cause of death. I really think this information may help us to come up with an acceptable immigration bill next time. Reid: Well Senator, you’re keeping us in suspense. What was it that the autopsy revealed about the cause of Mr. Immigration’s death? Sessions: What the doctors found may be a little bit of a surprise to you because when Mr. Immigration was on his sick bed, all we heard from the media was amnesty, amnesty, amnesty.

  • 13. no one put the finger on the real problem. If they would have, Mr. Immigration may not have died. Kennedy: So tell us. What did the autopsy reveal? (About that time Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and Senator John McCain joined the group.) Sessions: They found that Mr. Immigration’s body was absolutely full of infection. He was infected with Controlitis. Senator John McCain: With what? What do you mean… Controlitis? I don’t know what you’re talking about. Sessions: Well, many of us lawmakers thought the answer to terrorism was to impose more and more control on people. The immigration Bill called for giving every American a national ID card, putting everyone’s information into a national database, and not allowing them to even hold a job in this country unless they were numbered and controlled. That’s what is meant by Controlitis! Secretary Michael Chertoff: Wait just a minute! There was no national ID in the Immigration Bill. Sure we’ve got the Real ID Act. But that’s no national ID! Sessions: Mr. Chertoff, I’ve got a question for you. Is the Real ID card that you want every American to have by May of 2008 an ID card? Chertoff: Of course. You know it is. Sessions: Question number two. Was the Real ID card created by a city law, a state law or a national law? Chertoff: it was created by a national law. But that doesn’t mean that it’s a national ID! Sessions: Mr. Chertoff, if it’s an ID card and if it was created by a national law, it’s a national ID card…no matter how you twist it or turn it. And everybody in America knows that…except perhaps you folks at Homeland Security. The autopsy shows that it was the national ID provisions of the bill and the requirement that every American be placed into a national database in order to hold a job that killed Mr. Immigration. That’s what the doctors said. McCain: Did the doctors say how they reached that conclusion? Sessions: Yes, actually they did. The Baucus-Tester Amendment called for stripping the Immigration Bill of all its Real ID provisions, including its requirement of a national database and employment verification. The doctors noticed that, when the promoters of the Immigration Bill tried to table the Baucus-Tester Amendment, they were soundly defeated. This demonstrated to them that the majority of the senators understood the American people don’t want to be numbered, tracked in a database and told by the government whether they can work or not. That’s what caused the doctors to conclude that Mr. Immigration died of Controlitis. Kennedy: I reject that conclusion. It sounds like to me that the doctors performing the autopsy had a political agenda. I still say it was anti-amnesty that killed Mr. Immigration. (At this point, Senators Reid and Kennedy drifted away from the group, huddling in a small room just off the main viewing area of the funeral parlor.) Kennedy to Reid: You know that Sessions is right. But we can never publicly admit it because that’s the whole reason for the bill. We’ve been waiting 30 years for the chance to establish a national ID for all Americans. We can’t manage what we can’t measure. And we can’t measure what we can’t track. And we can’t track what we can’t number and put into a database. Reid: Why are the American people so paranoid about being numbered and tracked anyway? We only want to do it for their good. How else are we going to keep track of the terrorists? Kennedy: Well, well! There’s Senator Baucus himself. Let’s work on him a little bit. Reid: Hello, Senator Baucus. Reluctant congratulations on your successful defeat of the Immigration Bill. Senator Baucus: I didn’t ever expect to hear those words from your mouth, Senator. But thanks anyway. Kennedy: I do have to ask you one thing. After all of our efforts to deal with this huge immigration problem, thanks to you, we’re right back where we started. Since you didn’t like our deal, what’s your plan for dealing with 12 million illegal immigrants? Do you even have one? Baucus: As a matter of fact, I do. But it’s not forcing everyone to have a number, a national ID card and their information in a national database so that we can control them. Reid: Well, how are you going to control them then? Baucus: That’s the point! We’re not going to control them. Americans don’t want to be controlled. They want to be free. Control and freedom are opposites. Once we set up a system of control for Americans, the freedoms we’ve enjoyed since the birth of this nation will be gone. What we have to do is keep track of non-citizens that are in America. That’s where we are most vulnerable to terrorism and other acts of violence against this country. Reid: But that’s the problem. How do you tell non-citizens from citizens? Baucus: It’s really very simple. We have to make sure everyone that is in the United States is here legally. We can do this with three simple steps: We must build a fence along our Mexican border. That’s where most illegal immigrants are coming across. Israel has proven that fences do work. San Diego has also proven that they work. Once the fence is working effectively, we resolve the status of those immigrants that are already in our country. It may not be practical or desirable to simply deport them. Some of them contribute significantly to America’s economy. Furthermore, we must admit that the U.S. government bears as much responsibility for them being here as they do. We knew they were coming in by the millions and purposefully did nothing about it. We wanted them here for their cheap labor. If amnesty is the only way to clear up the mess we have created, then we should do what we have to do to resolve the problem. We should require every non-citizen employee to present proper documents showing they have permission to legally work in this country. Every legal citizen would only have to sign an affidavit affirming that he or she is an American citizen. Reid: Wait a minute! Run that by me again. You’re saying that U.S. citizens will only have to certify in writing that they are legal citizens in order to get a job?

Then, all of a sudden, all of the illegals that have lied will be going to their employers asking for their forms back…and leaving their jobs. And we won’t need a national ID card, a national database or an employment verification system! Reid: That will never work. It’s way too simple. (About that time, Senator Jon Tester and Senator Jim DeMint, seeing the animated conversation in progress, quietly joined the group. Tester was the co-sponsor of the Baucus-Tester Amendment that ultimately killed the Immigration Bill, and DeMint fought aggressively to defeat the bill.) Baucus: All of our complicated solutions haven’t worked. Maybe all we need is a simple, down-to-earth solution. Senator Reid, all we have to do is enforce our laws. We are like parents that don’t know how to raise children. We tell them we are going to do something, but we never do it. Consequently, they don’t pay any attention to us anymore. Kennedy: I’m against it. That’s inhumane. That would constitute cruel and unusual punishment. Furthermore, these people need to work, and we need their labor in this country. Baucus: If we need their labor here, then raise the annual quotas of immigrants allowed to come here legally. But don’t allow them to keep coming here illegally. Senator, how would you feel if, when you went home this evening, you found a stranger had moved into one of your spare bedrooms without your permission? You wouldn’t stand for it one minute! What if he wouldn’t leave? Would you be cruel or inhumane if you called the police? Of course not! That’s your home. The same goes for our country. The United States is our home! If we invite people to move into our home, that’s fine. But if they move in uninvited, we should not be expected to tolerate that. McCain: There’s one more thing I want to understand concerning this immigration fight we have just come through. My phone calls and my mail over the last few days were overwhelmingly against the Immigration Bill. My constituents were not just against it. They were passionately against it! A significant percentage of my phone calls and mail against this bill referred to religious objections to the Real ID and employment verification. I never did get it. What was that all about? Senator Jon Tester: Senator McCain, there is a prophecy in the Bible foretelling a time on earth when every person will be Baucus: Yes. That’s all. I anticipate the form reading something like this:

Without this number, a person will not be permitted to buy or sell. If an individual takes this mark or number called the mark of the beast, that individual will suffer eternal damnation according to the Bible. The prophecy is 2,000 years old and can be found in Revelation 13:15-18. The scripture teaches that the prophecy will come to pass at a time when a world government is gaining control. It also states that this numbering system will be the mechanism employed to force people to do what the government says. With the emergence of globalization, the World Trade Organization, the World Bank, the World Health Organization, the World Court, and other global institutions, many people believe the time for the fulfillment of this prophecy is just ahead of us. McCain: But aren’t the people that believe this just a small ultra-right religious fringe? My office was hammered with phone calls, faxes, and emails!! Tester: Actually, it is not a small fringe of Americans that believe in the prophecies of the Bible. A 2002 Time/Warner poll discovered that 59 percent of the American people believe the prophecies of the Bible and a large percentage of them believe the time for the fulfillment of these prophecies is now. McCain: So you’re telling me that a majority of Americans believe a time will come when every person will be forced to receive a number and that this number will be required to participate in the economy? Wow! No wonder my phone’s being ringing off the hook! This immigration bill requires exactly that! Tester: Senator, there’s one more thing you should understand. Even though the prophecy was given 2,000 years ago, its fulfillment has never been possible until now. Only since the invention of the computer and the birth of the Internet has it become possible to implement such a system. Whether you agree with them or not, many people see the requirement of the Real ID Act that every person must have an ID card with his social security number embedded in it or else he or she can’t hold a job or have a bank account as leading to this biblical prophecy. After all, without a job and without a bank account, how much buying and selling will a person be able to do? Senator Jim DeMint: You know, I read the funniest thing the other day. The possibility of establishing a national ID card came up during a cabinet meeting of the Reagan Administration. McCain: You mean way back in the 1980s? They were promoting a national ID way back then? DeMint: Absolutely. This national ID is not a new idea. Those who want to obtain socialistic control over the lives of every American are trying to sell this national ID as the answer to 9/11 and terrorism. But they don’t care how they sell it, just as long as they get control! McCain: So what did Reagan say when the subject was raised? DeMint: You’re not going to believe it! He said,“That’s the mark of the beast!” Tester: He said that about establishing a national ID? That’s funny! Now all the Republican candidates for president are trying to win the nomination by claiming to be like Reagan. But they’re all voting for the national ID, except for Ron Paul from Texas. McCain: So the doctors are right! It was national identification and employment verification that brought the immigration bill down! Interesting!

In many countries in Europe, South America, and Asia, your answer better be yes. Increasingly, nations are requiring citizens to carry state- issued identification. These days, some of those IDs hold biometric data, like finger- prints and digital photos, in addition to other personal information. The trend will soon hit North America: In a move widely seen to be creating a de facto national ID, Congress approved the REAL ID Act, which gives states until 2008 to adopt federal standards for driver’s licenses, including smartcard technology.

On June 27, 2007, Mr. Tony Blair, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, was named as the official peace envoy to the Middle East for The Quartet. Maybe you were as surprised as I was to hear the announcement of Mr. Blair’s appointment. It was puzzling and unexpected. As I listened to the news report, my mind sorted through what I knew about Mr. Blair. I tried to process his acceptance of the position only hours after he stepped down as Great Britain’s Prime Minister. What was the urgency? Surely the man deserved a brief vacation before starting his new assignment. The questions, “why?” and “what does this mean?” kept pressing in. Why would Tony Blair voluntarily resign the prestigious title of prime minister and immediately assume the role of an envoy—a messenger—for The Quartet? At first it seemed like a step down to me—a big step. In 1997, Mr. Blair won a landslide victory for his Labour Party and became the youngest prime minister since 1812. He was the only prime minister to lead the Labour Party to three consecutive victories, ever. As prime minister, Mr. Blair also enjoyed the titles and positions of First Lord of the Treasury, the Minister for the Civil Service, the Leader of the Labour Party, and a distinguished Member of Parliament. For ten years his official residence was 10 Downing Street. And now Blair was trading in the title of prime minister with all of its rights and privileges for the role of a messenger? Hum. . . there had to be more to it. What exactly is “an official envoy” for The Quartet, and what does he do? Mr. Blair’s new job as reported in the UN News is, “to focus on the work of The Quartet and to promote an end to the conflict in conformity with the Roadmap.” That sounds rather vague. Better keep digging. In order to understand Mr. Blair’s assignment and appointment, some background information is necessary. What Is, “The Quartet” And Its Mission? The Quartet is a foursome of international entities established in 2002 to mediate a peace agreement between Israel and The Palestinian Authority (PA). The Quartet consists of the U.S., represented by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice; the United Nations, represented by Secretary-General Ban Ki- moon; the European Union, represented by High Representative of Foreign Affairs Javier Solana; and the Russian Federation, represented by Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. These four entities apparently believe they speak for the world and can accomplish peace in a region that has never been at peace. And, according to Bible prophecy, there will be no lasting peace until the second coming of Jesus. Nevertheless, The Quartet validated its existence and named its mission, “The Roadmap For Peace.” What Is, “The Roadmap For Peace?” The Roadmap For Peace was drafted by the representatives of The Quartet in 2002 and introduced by President Bush in 2003. Its goal was to create a Palestinian state by 2005 that would peacefully exist with Israel ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. To Help Wantede Immediate opening for an international Peace envoy for the U.S., the UN, the EU, and the Russian Federation to broker a permanent peace treaty and end the Israeli-Palestinian bloodshed. Ideal candidate must be willing to devote long hours in negotiations with enemy leaders thousands of miles away from home and family, must be able to endure harsh criticism and death threats from radical extremists, and must be able to speak English. by Linda Sargent
  • 20. obtain this goal, a series of benchmarks were outlined in a three step process and accepted by both sides. However, due to the continuing terrorist attacks and suicide bombers, the target date was not met. In fact, there has been little progress even at the Phase One level with each side pointing the finger of blame at the other. Israel accuses the Palestinians of refusing to condemn the suicide bombers and terrorist activities by Hamas and other extremists groups. Israel has unequivocally stated she will not negotiate with terrorists. Additionally, the Palestinians have demanded that all refugees, estimated to be about 3.7 million, be able to return to Israel. Israel will never agree to this because the Palestinians would then outnumber the Jews enabling them to take over Jerusalem and the nation. The Palestinians assert that Israel is not serious about dismantling and withdrawing its settlements in the Gaza Strip and West Bank. Further, they accuse Israel of creating more division instead of moving toward peace by building the security wall that separates the two states. Is There A Renewed Hope For Peace? There have been numerous failed attempts to negotiate peace in the Middle East in recent years: the Camp David Accords, the Madrid Conference, the Oslo Accords, the Oslo II, the Hebron Agreement, the Wye River Memorandum, the Sharm e-Sheikh Memorandum, the Camp David 2000 Summit, the Taba Summit, and now, the Roadmap For Peace. Even though high ranking individuals previously represented The Quartet with its Roadmap For Peace, all failed and returned empty handed. They included former Senator George Mitchell, ex-CIA director George Tenet, and Generals Anthony Zinni, William Ward, and Keith Dayton. The position has been vacant since the last appointee, former World Bank President James Wolfensohn, left in April 2006 after less than a year at the post. 20 ENDTIMEMAGAZINE | July - August 2007 SubscribeNow| www.endtime.com| Call 1.800.Endtime Based on reports coming out of the Middle East, few observers expect Mr. Blair to accomplish much or last very long either. But, let’s give the man a chance and look at what Tony Blair has going for him that the other leaders may have lacked. Recently, The Quartet reaffirmed its goal and objective stating, “it is more urgent than ever that we advance the search for peace in the Middle East and promote an end to the conflict in conformity with the Roadmap.” This statement came after the terrorist group, Hamas, took over the Gaza Strip in early June and challenged the authority of Mahmoud Abbas, the duly elected President of the PA, and leader of his Fatah party. Also, President Bush, who adopted a hands-off policy early on in his administration, has apparently shifted courses. He recently announced that the U.S. will broker a Middle East peace summit in the fall, bringing together leaders from Israel, the PA, and select Arab governments in the region, “that support a two- state solution and reject violence.” An Arab-Israeli summit of this magnitude has not occurred since the 1991 peace conference in Madrid and could prove to be pivotal. Although Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will chair the conference, Mr. Blair will play a central role as The Quartet’s messenger. With so much at stake, why would Mr. Blair take on the assignment when so many others have failed? It has been suggested that Mr. Blair wants a chance to redeem himself and leave a legacy of peace after involving Great Britain in the perceived failure in Iraq. His final days in office were marred by unpopularity, especially in the Muslim world where he is seen as a puppet for the U.S. The Palestinians already held Great Britain in low regard for its role in helping the Jewish people establish a state after World War II. They believe Blair accomplished nothing for l I a g t s s r A s m n s p i c t A

Even so, Blair has proven to have great powers of détente and persuasion. During his term as prime minister, he successfully brokered a peace agreement in Northern Ireland, an area that had been racked by religious wars for decades. Mr. Blair also was at the forefront in promoting peace in The Balkans. If he is successful in helping to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, he will be hailed as the champion of the Middle East, a title coveted by former presidents Carter and Clinton. Blair’s legacy would be unparalleled as the man who finally brought peace to a region that has been at war for centuries-- definitely not a step down from prime minister of the United Kingdom. However, there is another reason Mr. Blair may succeed in obtaining a Middle East peace agreement that the observers, international officials, and The Quartet itself likely have not considered. If Mr. Blair is successful it will be because God’s clock for the countdown to Armageddon is ticking, and it’s running out of time. The recent appointment of Mr. Blair has created a stir among prophecy scholars. They are looking once again at the Abrahamic Covenant that established Israel’s right to exist. The Book of Daniel foretells that the Antichrist will confirm the Abrahamic Covenant seven years prior to Armageddon. Perhaps unbeknownst to Mr. Blair, The Roadmap For Peace may be the vehicle used to confirm the Abrahamic Covenant. But it does not stop there. Revelation chapter 13 described the Antichrist as having seven heads and ten horns and a mouth as the mouth of a lion—the symbol of Great Britain. Oh yes, the recent appointment of Tony Blair has created quite a stir. A Middle East peace agreement goes way beyond a handshake between Israel and President Abbas with a smiling Tony Blair looking on. Blair would leave a legacy all right, but it invites the question, “If Tony Blair confirms the Abrahamic Covenant as the messenger for The Quartet, is he the Antichrist?” If so, it is the beginning of the final seven years before the return of Christ. If so, we are about to witness the implementation of the Mark of the Beast without which we will not be able to buy or sell. If so, the world is headed for great tribulation such as it has never seen before. If so, we can look up for our redemption draws nigh. The Roadmap For Peace Phase I: Ending Terror and Violence, Normalizing Palestinian Life, and Building Palestinian Institutions * Palestinian leadership issues unequivocal statement reiterating Israel’s right to exist in peace and security and calling for an immediate end to all acts of violence against Israelis anywhere. * Israeli leadership issues unequivocal statement affirming its commitment to the two-state vision of an independent, viable, sovereign Palestinian state living in peace and security with Israel, and calling for an immediate end to violence against Palestinians anywhere. * Palestinian institution-building includes drafting a constitution for Palestinian statehood and conducting free elections. * Israel withdraws from Palestinian areas occupied since September 2000, as security progresses, freezes all settlement activity, and dismantles outposts. It takes measures to improve the Palestinian humanitarian situation. Phase II: Transition * An independent Palestinian state is created with provisional borders and attributes of sovereignty. The Palestinian leadership continues to act decisively against terror and to build a practicing democracy based on tolerance and liberty. * An international conference will be convened by the Quartet after the Palestinian elections to support Palestinian economic recovery. Multilateral Middle East issues also will be addressed, including water, environment, economic development, refugees, and arms control issues. Phase III: Permanent Status Agreement and End of Israeli-Palestinian Conflict * Palestinian reform is consolidated and its institutions stabilized while effective security performance is sustained. Israeli-Palestinian negotiations aim at a permanent status agreement in 2005. * A second international conference convened by the Quartet leads to a final,permanent status resolution on borders, Jerusalem, refugees, and settlements. It also supports a comprehensive peace settlement between Israel and Lebanon and Israel and Syria, as soon as possible.

The confirmation of the covenant is when the Antichrist and the world community confirm Israel’s right to exist in the Holy Land. It also marks the beginning of the final seven years immediately preceding Armageddon. Within three and one-half years of the confirmation of the covenant, a Jewish temple will be built on the Temple Mount, and animal sacrifices will be resumed there. Tony Blair While still prime minister of Great Britain, Tony Blair stated that peace in the Middle East was the world’s number one priority. Apparently, he still believes what he said. No sooner was the ink dry on his resignation as Britain’s prime minister than it was announced that he would become special envoy to the Middle East on behalf of the international Quartet (consisting of the US, the EU, Russia and the UN). It should be remembered that the Quartet’s Roadmap for Peace is a plan for peace in the Middle East that contains all the elements of the prophesied confirmation of the covenant. The world community is investing tremendous amounts of political capital in sending such a high-profile world leader as Blair to the Middle East. It apparently thinks the time has arrived to put all of its weight behind achieving a solution to the world’s most vexing diplomatic problem. Blair’s first challenge It has already been announced that Blair’s first priority will not be to revive the peace process. He intends to concentrate on helping the Palestinians establish structures that would allow them to govern a state if they had one. It has apparently dawned on someone that the Palestinians would not know how to manage an independent nation if one were given to them. With ten years at the head of one of the world’s greatest nations, it is assumed that Blair is well qualified to help Palestinians build their governmental structures. Hamas takeover of Gaza Ever since the victory by Hamas in the Palestinian elections in early 2006, the situation in the Palestinian territories has been quite murky. Since Hamas was officially designated a terrorist entity by both the US and the EU, funding was cut off to the Palestinian Authority once Hamas became part of the government. The West tried to strengthen Fatah and Mahmoud Abbas while weakening Hamas. However, the Palestinian people had voted for Hamas, whose very reason Dramaticshift in the Middle East Hamas takes over Gaza—Tony Blair appointed Mideast envoy Mideast Update

In spite of tremendous diplomatic and financial pressure being brought against Hamas, it has steadfastly refused to recognize Israel’s right to exist. Since May of 2007, Fatah and Hamas had teetered on the brink of civil war in Gaza. Finally in early June, the smoldering conflict burst into the open. Hamas overpowered Fatah, captured millions of dollars of weapons that the US had given to Fatah, and forced Mahmoud Abbas to flee into the West Bank. By June 15th, Hamas was the undisputed ruler of Gaza. Abbas retaliated by dissolving the Palestinian government and appointing a new emergency government without any Hamas involvement. The West quickly grabbed the opportunity and resumed full support of the new government led by Abbas. President Bush immediately pledged $190 million in aid to strengthen the new government. Apparently, the U.S. intends to deal with Abbas while ignoring Hamas and Gaza altogether. This gives Tony Blair someone to work with as he attempts to put together a legitimate Palestinian government. Peace breakthrough ahead? In spite of the chaos emanating from Gaza, several major developments seem to indicate the possibility of a major peace breakthrough in the Middle East. On July 9th, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert openly called on Syria’s Bashar Assad to conduct peace talks with Israel. Assad accepted Olmert’s invitation on the condition that Israel would commit to returning to the Israeli-Syrian border as it was prior to 1967. At the recent Arab League Summit, Arab countries renewed their offer of the Saudi Peace Initiative. The Saudi Plan says that, if Israel will withdraw to 1967 borders, the Arab countries will make peace with her and establish diplomatic relations with her. A delegation representing the Arab League is scheduled to visit Jerusalem to begin discussions of the Saudi Initiative. Just as this edition of Endtime magazine is going to press, President Bush has called for a regional peace conference on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. And then on July 18, 2007, Javier Solana, the EU’s representative to the Quartet, speaking at a press conference in Ramallah after meeting with Abbas, said, “Some initiatives are going to be taken in the coming days that may lead to the dream of all of us, especially if the Palestinians start a political process.” Confirmation of the covenant just ahead? When we look at the revival of the Saudi Peace Initiative, the appointment of Tony Blair as the Quartet’s peace envoy, the planned visit of the Arab League delegation to Jerusalem, and the open talks of peace negotiations by the leaders of Israel and Syria, it is obvious that a major peace offensive has been launched. The big question is: Will it be successful unlike many similar efforts that have failed before it, or will it simply be added to the long list of failures? We know that the confirmation of the covenant by the international community is going to happen. It’s prophesied in the Bible. We also know that the international community is more engaged in the Middle East than ever before. Lastly, we know that the other prophecies that are to occur around the same time as the confirmation of the covenant are in the process of being fulfilled right now. So will the split between Hamas and Fatah and the Tony Blair appointment open the door for the confirmation of the covenant and the launching of the final seven years? We will soon know! security wallyyyy dividing Israel from Palestine

Unwarranted wiretapping, monitor- ing of private E-mails and the surveillance of web activity have all been deeply disturb- ing to freedom loving Americans. The most bothersome develop- ment of all has been the passage of the “Real ID Act” which creates a national ID card for every Ameri- can. Jim Harper has been one of the foremost opponents of the Na- tional ID. He is our guest for this edition of “Politics and Reli- gion.” I R V I N : Jim Harper is the director of information policies stud- ies of the Cato Institute. In his work he focuses on the difficult problems with adapting law and policy to the problems of the infor- mation age. He is also a member of the Department of Homeland Security’s dada privacy and integrity advisory committee and he has written a book called, “Identity Crisis.” It has everything to do with the rush toward a national ID, in fact a global ID, that’s taking place in our society right now. Jim has been a guest on our pro- gram previously, a wonderful guest I might add. Jim, nice to have you on “Politics and Religion” once again. J I M H A R P E R : Thanks for having me back. I R V I N : A lot has happened since we were together last, Jim. We had this huge monumental battle over the immigration bill and it went down to defeat last week. From where you sit, you are a member of Homeland Security Advisory Com- mittee. From where you sit, what was the significance of the de- feat of the Immigration Bill last week? J I M H A R P E R : Well, it’s interesting be- cause one of the parts of the bill that had very little discussion during the public debate and newspapers, television and radio was title III. Title III of the bill dealt with internal enforce- ment and it, basically, would have required everyone to have a Real ID if they were going to work in the United States. A new program to get federal approval for working would have been strengthened, actually, it existed in a very weak form already, in the Form I-9, which a lot of people are familiar with. When you start a new job you have to submit to your employer, some paperwork: license and social security num- ber. Well the idea there was to strengthen that program, make an electronic and require, in the course of all that, to have everybody carry a Real ID. So it really was an attempt to resurrect Real ID, which has been taking a real beating in the states and continues to in the states rejecting it. Over all, immigration reform, people have a lot of ideas about where they stand on that. But, as far as this part of it, Title III, now that was an attempt to resurrect Real ID and the fact that it has gone to defeat is a good thing by me.

  • 26. 26 ENDTIMEMAGAZINE | July - August 2007 SubscribeNow| www.endtime.com| Call 1.800.Endtime I R V I N : So why was the Immigration Bill defeated? Was it am- nesty or was it employment verification that sank the ship? J I M H A R P E R : You know, it’s hard to know exactly what the causes were but, as you know, there was a deal struck in a very delicate balance. I think when everyone is unhappy in Washington, that’s the best sign that there has been a compromise reached. So, there was a lot of hope that there would be an overall bill but a lot of people disliked it strongly and some of the folks believed it was amnesty and they were opposed to it; plenty of reasons for it to go down. I do think that Real ID Act is a catalyst for the failure of the bill. There was a rather complicated legislative procedure underway and the thing that stopped the process was a vote on whether Real ID should stay in the bill. Senators Tester and Baucus, both from Montana, a state that has come out very strongly against Real ID, they offered an amendment that would have stripped Real ID out of the immigration bill. There was a motion to table that amendment, meaning to put the amendment aside and very likely, when you table an amendment, you never see it again. So it was, essentially a vote against that amendment. And that vote failed, meaning that a majority of senators in the U. S. Senate do not support Real ID and would not take steps to prop it up through this immigration bill. That stopped voting and the next morning they had their cloture vote. This was a vote to see if they would proceed to final passage, and that vote failed. That was the end of immigration reform probably for the year. So Real ID was a cata- lyst. The majority of senators we know now oppose Real ID. The problem, of course, is getting them to act on that and take it back out of federal law. I R V I N : I wanted to ask you, in particular, because I know you are probably as well positioned as anyone who is against the Real ID Act, to sort of tell us what the truth of the matter is. I had de- termined that it was not amnesty that killed the bill. Kay Bailey Hutchison, our senator from Texas, had an amendment that would have required for illegal immigrants to go home, properly apply, and then come back. It was a bill against the blanket amnesty that was provided by the immigration bill. Well, they tried to kill that amendment and they succeeded. The senators voted against requiring people to go home so they were really voting for amnesty and the majority voted not to require them to go home. I concluded that it was not amnesty that killed it. Like you say, the Box-Tester amendment, they tried the same thing with it, and they were going to table it. And when that vote was taken they said, no, we want this amendment in there, which would strip the Real ID provisions from the bill. I was highly encouraged. The senate voted 100:0 to pass the Real ID Act, but, of course they really didn’t. They voted to pass the appropriations bill but it was a political slight of hand. I had reached the conclusion that it was the Real ID provisions which killed the immigration bill. I just wanted to bounce it off you to see if you were in agreement on that. J I M H A R P E R : I think so and isn’t this a great example of how Washington works though: ready-fire-aim. Back in May 2005 they fired. Now they’re starting to aim and they’re looking at Real ID and realizing this was a mistake. We’re not going to prop it up. That’s important progress. Of course it’s not enough yet and we have to see that congress mends the errors that it’s made in the past with Real ID. I R V I N : That’s my next question because we still have a law on the books that requires all of us to have a national ID card. Actu- ally, it says by May 11 of next year, 10 months from right now. Now we know that there’s a lot of fancy footwork going on. There are some states that have outright passed laws against it. There are other states that have passed resolutions against it saying, “We want it taken away.” But, as of right now, it’s still law. Is that correct? J I M H A R P E R : That is correct. It still is the law. It’s still the expectation of the federal law that we should all start to get these Real ID/National ID’s, starting in May of next year. Since so many states will not, WILL NOT, and they have said in their law that they will not comply, it’s not going to happen. But some states will take steps forward. In some cases state administrators are trying to move forward despite what the consciences is in their states and that’s interesting to watch. The most important development currently is the appropriations process. The rumor is: there will be money put into appropriations to try and buy the states off on this. C R A I G : I’m recalling a phone conversation you and I had a couple of months ago. You mentioned to me, off the air, that the supposed extension for Real ID was actually a trick, a manipula- tion by the Department of Homeland Security to try and stop this landslide of opposition to Real ID and to cause states to come into compliance. Can you elaborate on that a little bit? J I M H A R P E R : Well, sure. The regulatory processes are awfully complicated but when DHS issued its notice of proposed rule making, that is the starting point for issuing regulations un- der the Real ID Act, it made an interesting offer to states. It said that if states commit by October of 2007 to implement Real ID, we would extend their deadline for implementation until Decem- ber of 2009. So the bargain is that if you commit early, we’ll give you more time. If you don’t commit, then we’re going to hold you to the May 2008 deadline. That’s next year coming up very soon. And so it was really, I think recognizable to careful observers as a political ploy to try to drive states to commit to compliance before they were fully aware of all the costs they were getting involved with. I don’t think it’s worked. I haven’t seen states, yet, step up and signal that they’re going to comply. And as I’ve said, many states are directly refusing to comply. But we’ll know better in October of this year what states have gone for that trick and what states give their pledge of allegiance to the Department of Homeland Security rather than to their citizens of privacy and civil liberties. So it’s an interesting ploy coming out of DHS. I R V I N : Yea. So when they say we’re going to give you addi- tional time, how in the world is that going to work because if some states have additional time and other states do not, are you going to line up at the airport and say: OK, we will accept this noncompli- ant driver’s license from Utah but we wont accept a noncompliant driver’s license from Texas. I mean, this is going to be fun. “The senate voted 100:0 to pass the Real ID Act, but, of course they really didn’t. They. voted to pass the appropriations bill but it was a political slight of hand. ”

ENDTIMEMAGAZINE | July - August 2007 27SubscribeNow| www.endtime.com| Call 1.800.Endtime J I M H A R P E R : Imagining what the federal government might do is really “Alice in Wonderland” stuff. But I think it’s much more likely than them picking and choosing among different states, who can travel and who can’t, is that they will just back off. The threat all the time with Real ID has been that driver’s licenses won’t be acceptable for traveling if you don’t and invariably, when push comes to shove, the feds will back down. The feds will have to accommodate people who don’t have this national ID. So I think we can all be confidant, as citizens, more importantly state leg- islators should be confident that they can act to protect us. They don’t have to kowtow to the federal government on this Real ID Act. They don’t have to put their citizens into a national database at the command of the federal government. So it’s important to recognize that a power, a big power known as the federal government is trying to use identity to increase its power at the expense of all of us and at the expense of other inter- ests and other powers. I R V I N : You explain that in your book, “Identity Crisis.” J I M H A R P E R : Whatever bad idea is put forward by au- thorities, we have rights, as individuals, and those rights are a bul- wark against those bad ideas being put into effect and so that’s why it’s so important, even in peaceful times, even though we love our country. We love our country because of its respect for our individual rights and that’s our strength against any kind of bad idea that may take hold among the authorities and the elites. I R V I N : Jim, we’ve run out of time. Thank you so much. Like you point out, many of the people trying to pass these laws may be honorable and good people, well meaning people but once you get a law set up then an Adolph Hitler finds his way into power. They are able to take these same laws and use them to enslave the American people and that’s the reason it’s so important to defeat these things before they can develop. “State legislators should be confident that they can act to protect us. They don’t have to kowtow to the federal government on this Real ID Act. They don’t have to put their citizens into a national database at the command of the federal government. ” PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH SIGNING IMMAGRATION BILL INTO LAW
