White House, 11/28/07

ANNAPOLIS PEACE CONFERENCE - 10,966 DAY INTERVAL - ADDS TO "22"! Cutting Edge Calculations Proven Correct

Read NEWS2252 For Full Understanding

I. The facts of the Annapolis "Peace Conference" prove beyond doubt that world events are controlled by the Illuminati!

History should record that the "Peace Conference" held at Annapolis November 27, with a White House wrap-up announcement session on November 28, was one of the most important and revealing events of the past 90 years! How can I say this? This statement is true because, when President Bush held the wrap-up session at the White House on November 28, that day was 10,966 from the third major "30-Year-And-Always-In-November" event in Israel's modern history -- the November 19, 1977, peace treaty between Anwar Sadat of Egypt and Israel.

The picture shows to the upper left the photo op taken outside the White House on November 28, 2007, with President Bush, Israeli Prime Minister Olmert and Palestinian Authority Abbas. To ensure that we properly document that the final concluding meeting of the Annapolis conference was held November 28, at the White House, let us review this news story, from the official White House website. Note that this article features the three leaders we show in the picture, above, taken outside the doors in the Rose Garden.

NEWS BRIEF: "President Bush Makes Remarks on Annapolis Conference",, November 28, 2007 at 2:04pm Eastern Time

"THE PRESIDENT: Mr. Prime Minister, thank you; Mr. President. A series of successful meetings today with these leaders. Yesterday was an important day, and it was a hopeful beginning. No matter how important yesterday was, it's not nearly as important as tomorrow and the days beyond. I appreciate the commitment of these leaders to working hard to achieve peace. I wouldn't be standing here if I didn't believe that peace was possible, and they wouldn't be here either if they didn't think peace was possible."

If you need further visual proof that these three leaders did, indeed, meet at the White House on November 28, please examine this same photo in this Jerusalem Post, where the sub-headline under the picture says, "Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, US President George W. Bush, and PA President Mahmoud Abbas wave after a trilateral meeting wrapping up the Annapolis conference." (The Jerusalem Post, "PM: Temple Mount not negotiable", November 29, 2007)

Without doubt, the concluding day of this Annapolis Summit was November 28, the only day in November of this year where the interval of days to the previous 30-year event added to '22', the numeric signature of Israel (since the Hebrew alphabet consists of 22 letters).

But, other facts also demonstrate that the Illuminati planned this event:

1) Annapolis is located on the 39th Parallel. The number '39' is sacred to the occultist because it is formed by '13x3'. The number '13' is believed sacred by the occultist, because it represents "extreme rebellion against constituted authority", while the number '3' denotes the Pagan Trinity of Satan, Antichrist and False Prophet.

Adolf Hitler chose to launch his World War II in the year, 1939, simply because '39' is so highly regarded by all occultists.

2) President Bush issued invitations at the last possible minute, and 44 nations flew to Annapolis. The number '44' is considered sacred because it is formed by '11x4'; remember, '11' is the numeric symbol of the coming Antichrist. All single-digit multiplications of '11' are considered important.


II. Annapolis is further shown to be Masonic by this incredible Masonic handshake between Prime Minister Olmert of Israel and President Abbas of the Palestinian Authority.

Like every other symbol Masonry uses, the Masonic Handshake is designed to "reveal and to conceal" at the same time. When other Masons or other occults see this handshake occurring, they will know that the two men exchanging this kind of handshake are occultic Masons.

But, the "profane" person, i.e., the person who does not belong to either Freemasonry or any other occult group, will look so casually upon this handshake that they will not realize the significance of this unique handshake.

As Abbas has crooked his thumb over the hand of Israeli PM Olmert, he is demonstrating several things simultaneously to the peoples of the world.

Abbas is demonstrating that he is a Mason, and since he is giving this unique handshake to Olmert, people must realize that Olmert is a Mason also. And, since Skull & Bones Bush is standing in the middle, you can safely realize that the entire event is Masonic (since Skull & Bones is Masonic to the core).

Indeed, this entire Annapolis Peace Conference is Masonic to the core, which is exactly why the precise numerics of the day of its conclusion were exactly the same as the numerics of the previous three major events (NEWS2252).

Now, let us examine some other Masonic handshakes.

These two images are taken from Texe Marrs' monumental book, "Codex Magica: Secret Signs, Mysterious Symbols, and Hidden Codes of the Illuminati".

The picture of Abbas and Sharon exchanging their Masonic Handshake is shown on page 156. Since Abbas is clearly demonstrated by these pictures to be Freemason, then you can understand how the Illuminati controls both sides of this "conflict". Rothschild Freemasonry controls the leaders of Israel, while all Arab Masons answer to the King of Jordan, currently King Abdullah II.

Listen to the revelation offered by Codex Magica, page 163:

"In August, 2000, Prime Minister Ehud Barak of Israel in a clear Masonic hand grip with Jordan's King Abdullah as they meet in Amman, Jordan. All Prime Ministers of Israel since the formation of that nation in 1948 have been initiates of the Masonic Lodge. All have been recruited into the Order of the Illuminati as well."

This fact is monumentally important, for it reveals that events will occur just as the global Masonic Plan directs, and that means that Masonry must control the Temple Mount so the Masonic Christ can rebuild Solomon's Temple on the sacred Jewish site. We encourage you to read our treatise on this subject, NEWS1643, "Fervent Masonic Desire To Rebuild Solomon's Temple Is The Driving Force Behind The Events of the Mid-East Today".

Once you understand this principle, you will comprehend that this Annapolis Peace Conference is not designed to bring peace, but to bring the Masonic Christ to his Temple Mount where he will rebuild Solomon's Temple; the average Palestinian is just the pawn in this overarching plan.

You must understand that the Global Illuminati controls both sides and all key leaders of this conflict in Israel. For this reason, they will build Solomon's Temple on the Temple Mount -- and Palestinian's Abbas is currently performing his assigned role.

Listen to how New World Order author, Peter Lemesurier, describes how the Masonic Messiah is going to proceed to a Temple Mount strewn with the ruins of the Islamic Dome of the Rock.

"... it may be possible for the New David to ride into Jerusalem in all his resplendent majesty. Note the word 'ride' ... on a donkey as predicted in Zechariah 9:9 ... it would seem advisable for the new Messiah to repeat it, donkey and all ... The processional route will, of course, lie directly across the Kidron ravine, as close as possible to the Temple Mount ... he must be duly enthroned and anointed with oil (in token of Psalm 45:6-7) amid the rubble of the dome of the Rock ..." [Peter Lemesurier, "The Armageddon Script", p. 233-35]

The Illuminati plans to destroy the Dome of the Rock just before the Masonic Christ gets there!

Now, let us get back to this most interesting subject of Masonic Handshakes. From whence did this tradition originate? Since Masonry takes most of its symbols and doctrines from the Babylonian and Egyptian Mysteries Religions, we should not be surprised to learn that the Babylonian god, "Nebo" is the first known instance of the Masonic handshake, as this picture reveals.

This image is on page 157 of "Codex Magica" with the accompanying writeup.

"This drawing of the ancient Babylonian god, Nebo, from a Dictionary of the Bible, makes him appear to be instructing adepts on the finer points of using hand signals or mysterious grips ... the Biblical King Nebuchadnezzar in the book of Daniel was named after Nebo."

We highly recommend "Codex Magica" because this book reveals the key symbols and practices by which Brotherhood leaders all over the world flash messages to other Adepts, without the "Profane" realizing what is going on. We consider this to be one of the most important books in our Bookstore as far as revealing the truth of world leaders, including Republican and Democrat in America.

Once you read "Codex Magica", you will understand that there truly is no difference between Republican and Democrat - that they are all committed to the New World Order.

Wall Chart - 'Then and Now'

III. The "Peace Conference" in Annapolis accomplished exactly what we had said it would accomplish, i.e., publish a strong, clarion call for the transition to a Palestinian State to begin.

The goal of this conference was NOT to actually establish a Palestinian State, but to simply set in motion a diplomatic energy toward such a goal which will prove to be irresistible

NEWS BRIEF: "Bush: Israeli, Palestinian leaders off to hopeful start in peace talks", YNET News, 11.28.07

"President George W. Bush, capping an intense flurry of diplomacy, said Wednesday the agreement by Israeli and Palestinian leaders to resume long-stalled peace talks was 'a hopeful beginning'. Bush was joined at the White House by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in a brief ceremony a day after they agreed in nearby Annapolis, Maryland, to try to reach a Mideast peace settlement by the end of 2008 ... (Bush said) 'Yesterday was an important day, and it was a hopeful beginning', the president said with the leaders at his side. 'No matter how important yesterday was, it's not nearly as important as tomorrow and the days beyond'."

All Annapolis was designed to accomplish was to create a powerful, hopeful beginning to a final status treaty which is already agreed upon, by the way. This Masonic leadership -- American, Israeli, and Palestinian -- will do their level best to create the illusion that they are struggling on key issues, but the reality is that the final end has already been scripted. Never forget this fact.

This next article is even more direct in describing Annapolis as a beginning.

NEWS BRIEF: " 'We laid cornerstone to peace in Annapolis' ", YNET News, 11.28.07

"Foreign Ministry Director-General Aharon Abramovitch was also pleased with what had transpired on Tuesday. 'All in all we view Annapolis as having been a positive affair' ... Negotiations are set to begin on December 12th ... The bi-weekly meetings between the two, said Israeli officials, are scheduled to continue. 'This is going to be a long, drawn-out process that will require patience from both sides. But the important thing is that we've laid the cornerstone for that process here at Annapolis'."

IV. Now that Annapolis has come and gone, and now that the key powerful parties have agreed that a Palestinian State must be created to live "peaceably" side-by-side with an emaciated Israel, what event(s) can we expect now?

Aside from a continual diet of news stories reporting on the ups and downs of the bi-weekly "negotiations ", I would not be surprised if the Israeli Defense Force launches a rather massive attack against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

Already, key Israeli leaders have been expressing the need to the IDF to attack Hamas in Gaza. But, in order to not jeopardize Annapolis, PM Olmert and his Cabinet put off a decision to actually attack.

I believe it might be necessary for Israel and for the Palestinian Authority to neutralize Hamas. You see, the leadership of the militant Hamas knows that President Abbas is a Mason, and therefore, they rightly believe that his agenda is Masonic and not Palestinian. In fact, Hamas feels that Abbas is the "Judas goat" which plans to lead the unsuspecting Palestinian sheep up into the slaughter trailer.

Before Annapolis, Hamas threatened to kill Abbas if he negotiated too much away.

Hamas has certainly invited attack.

NEWS BRIEF: "Gaza Terror Groups Threaten A "Rain of Rockets" In Response To Annapolis", YNET News, 11.27.07

"With the opening of the Annapolis Conference, Palestinian organizations in the Gaza Strip are sending a clear message to those gathering in Maryland. Tuesday morning the Popular Resistance Committees announced the beginning of operation "Autumn Storm" in which the organization plans to launch rocket attacks at Sderot and the western Negev during the conference. Meanwhile, fighting in the field has not ceased for a moment..."

If the IDF really does attack Hamas, they must really overthrow the leadership, instead of only failing to achieve military victory, as they did in the Lebanon attack in July - August 2006.

V. Perhaps the most important and grievous event at Annapolis occurred when President Bush referred to Israel's modern rule over the lands God gave her through Abraham as an "occupation".

We posted a thorough article on this outrage last night. It is NEWS2254, entitled, "OUTRAGE! "Christian" President Bush Carrying Out Long-Term Plan To Divide Biblical Israel and Jerusalem With The Palestinians - Bush Actually Used Term 'Occupation' To Refer To Israel Controlling God's Biblical Land!"

Let us quote some pertinent excerpts from this current Headline News article:

" 'The Israelis must do their part. They must show the world that they are ready to begin -- to bring an end to the occupation that began in 1967 through a negotiated settlement. This settlement will establish Palestine as a Palestinian homeland, just as Israel is a homeland for the Jewish people."

Can you imagine President Bush using the hateful, and terribly misleading, Arab term, "occupation" to refer to Israel's control of the land God gave to Abraham FOREVER?

"Occupation" means an unlawful control of a land. If anything, once the Palestinians gain control of the Gaza Strip and the West Bank in their new "Palestinian State", they will be the ones who are "occupying" that land!

Please look carefully at this ancient map of Israel, above, dated 1020 B.C. You can see that both the Gaza Strip and the West Bank are clearly in Israel's control. These lands are most definitely part of the land which God gave Israel in ancient times.

Therefore, I find it despicable in the highest degree that "Christian" President Bush would use the term, "occupation" in describing Israel's rule of her own land. God has thus one more sin to add to the many of which America is guilty and for which we shall be mightily judged.

But, there is more to President Bush's statement! Let us examine the sentence in which he used the term, "occupation":

"" 'The Israelis must do their part. They must show the world that they are ready to begin -- to bring an end to the occupation that began in 1967 ..."

Does this mean that the ultimate plan for a Palestinian State will entail an Israeli return to the borders which existed before the 1967 War? Not only is Israel going to be required to retreat back to the pre-1967 border, but the Oslo Accords originally promised just that!

Did you realize this? This plan to carve a Palestinian State out of Biblical Israel began in 1992-1993, when Oslo was first created. Likewise, the plan to force Israel to withdraw to her pre-1967 borders was drawn up by Israeli leaders Peres and Rabin.

Some years ago, we posted a Headline News article, NEWS1911, in which we demonstrated that the original Oslo Accords promised a return tothe pre-1967 border and promised a Palestinian State. The discovery upon which this article was based was all the way back in January, 1994. Let us review just a portion of this most interesting article.

NEWS BRIEF: "There was a plan: A real-life cloak and dagger tale that can finally be told", By Hillel Halkin, Jewish World Review, April 15, 2004 / 25 Nissan, 5764

"It happened, as far as I can reconstruct it from memory, in January 1994. At the time, I was the correspondent in Israel of the New York weekly Forward and had an assistant, Abby Wisse. One day Abby called me with an odd story. She had gotten a telephone call from an American Jew who refused to give his name. He would only say that he lived in a settlement in the territories and had an astounding document to show her. It had been given to him by a friend who worked in the Foreign Ministry and it contained the secret plan for the implementation of the Oslo Agreement, which had been signed several months previously a plan that revealed the Rabin government's true intentions. These were, contrary to everything that was being said publicly, to establish a Palestinian state, withdraw to the 1967 borders, evacuate all the settlements, and return all of east Jerusalem to Arab rule. It was all in the document, which the anonymous caller wanted us to publish in order to bare the shocking truth."

This was what the Israeli leadership under Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Rabin promised the Palestinians in the original 1993 Oslo Accords, and it is what was promised again by PM Olmert at Annapolis! Since this was the Illuminati Plan, you know it will occur, and evidently, that plan is now on a time schedule thanks to Annapolis -- by the end of 2008.

So, Israel is to return to the pre-1967 borders?

From the beginning of the Oslo Accords (1992-1993), I was perplexed, for its foundational precepts and assumptions simply did not square with reality. How could Israel -- one of the tiniest nations on earth who is daily engaged in a fight for survival against an enemy who outnumbers her 50 to 1 -- agree to give up even one inch of her territory? I well remember the exclamation of former President Nixon, who stated after leaving office that Israel could never agree to give up part of her territory to the Palestinians, for the existence of of such a hostile state within her borders would be identical to a man have a sharp knife pressed against his chest.

Further, the very nature of the Islamic enemy is such that her adherents will never know peace, at least not until all her enemies throughout the world are either dead or "converted" to Islam at the point of the sword. Time and time again, the Palestinians have publicly called for a "Day of Rage" in which they rail against Israel's policies, or against specific events. The entire religion of Islam historically has been one of blood spilt of all her enemies, most particularly the Jews and the Christians. If you doubt this fact, please watch the DVD above, "Relentless" for that will vividly show why the Palestinians will never live peaceably with Israel.

Finally, President Bush was trying to sell the Palestinian State on the basis of "Peace and Security (Safety").

Listen to his excerpt:

"We meet to lay the foundation for the establishment of a new nation -- a democratic Palestinian state that will live side by side with Israel in peace and security." (NEWS BRIEF: "President Bush Attends Annapolis Conference", White House, November 27, 2007)

People who are Biblically literate will immediately sit up to take notice, for they will remember the prophetic words of the Apostle Paul:

"... you yourselves know perfectly well that the day of the return of the Lord will come as unexpectedly and suddenly as a thief in the night. When people are saying, All is well and secure, and, There is peace and safety, then in a moment unforeseen destruction (ruin and death) will come upon them as suddenly as labor pains come upon a woman with child; and they shall by no means escape, for there will be no escape." (2 Thessalonians 5:2-3; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)

Annapolis will be recorded in the brief history books the world has left as one of the most monumentally important events in a very long time. The agreements were pre-decided, just as we predicted, and now the impetus for a Palestinian State will prove to be unstoppable toward the pre-determined State. Annapolis laid the requisite groundwork.

VI. NAFTA continues to develop amidst great controversy amongst Conservatives.

This next article seems to indicate that the time for the implementation of the new currency, the 'AMERO' may be closer than you might think.

NEWS BRIEF: "Billionaire Tells Canada: Time for Amero is now", by Jerome Corsi, World Net Daily, November 27, 2007

"Stephen Jarislowsky, a billionaire money manager and investor the Canadian newspaper Globe and Mail bills as the Canadian Warren Buffet, has told a parliamentary committee Canada and the United States both should abandon their national dollar currencies and move to a regional North American currency as soon as possible."

Cutting Edge has been talking about the creation of NAFTA since late, 1993, when Congress passed the legislation under the leadership of President Bill Clinton and Former President George H.W. Bush (Sr.) (Read NEWS1002, "NAFTA: The Shocking 'Rest of the Story' ").

We have also demonstrated that the concept for a union of North America and South America, each one in its own sphere, was planned four hundred years ago, by Sir Francis Bacon and Queen Elizabeth II. A Plan which has been carried forward for that many centuries is a Plan backed by the most powerful and wicked people on earth -- the Illuminati.

Let us now return back to this featured news article.

" 'I think we have to really seriously start thinking of the model of a continental currency just like Europe', Jarislowsky told the Canadian House of Commons' finance committee, according to the Globe and Mail in Toronto ... In an exclusive telephone interview with WND, Jarislowsky repeated his call for a European Union-style currency to be created between Canada and the United States.

" 'The idea would be a European Union-type set-up', Jarislowsky said, 'with a North American Central Bank that would issue the new currency and sit over the Bank of Canada and the Federal Reserve Bank in the United States'."

Again, Cutting Edge has been warning for many years that the Amero currency will be modeled after the Euro, since that currency has proven to be highly successful. The key to establishing the Amero currency is to "create the problem" first which will "require" some dramatic change.

Of course, the controlled fall of the American Dollar fits that bill exactly! For about two decades now, the American Dollar has been carefully managed so that its value will fall. This decline has been increasingly precipitous since January, 2007, when some countries like Iran and Russia began switching to other currencies as they sold their oil on the international market.

Some day, the fall of the American Dollar will decline to the point where a controlled crisis will erupt, threatening to collapse the entire American economy, and of course, the entire global economy. Just before the collapse is to occur, some brilliant politician will propose that the American Dollar be dissolved and melded into the new Amero.

This "brilliant concept" will gather instant steam, Congress will quickly pass the legislation and the President will sign it. The new Amero will be hailed as the economic savior of the world, and Americans will breathe a sigh of relief that their financial assets remain intact.

You can chalk this event up as the Illuminati stepping in to solve the very problem they created in the first place! And, the world will have taken a significant step forward in a global economy with a global currency.


VII. A truly remarkable report by "60 Minutes' last night (11/25) revealed that a customer is considerably safer buying merchandise on line than they are in buying with a credit card at a local store. Most store retailers are employing a security system full of flaws and easily broken into!

NEWS BRIEF: "Hi-Tech Heist: How Hi-Tech Thieves Stole Millions Of Customer Financial Records", CBS News, November 25, 2007

" "Do you think twice when typing in your credit card number online, but have no problem handing over your plastic card at a store? Well actually, you may have it backward. Your personal information may be more secure in cyberspace than at the mall down the road. That's because it's easier for dot-coms to protect the data. And most stores in America underestimate how vulnerable they are."

Customers are very concerned that their credit card information can be compromised and stolen if they purchase online. Cutting Edge employs a most secure system which has never been hacked into in these past 5 years. Additionally, we employ now an automated order processing system which automatically processes each order to the bank and we never see the credit card information nor any personal passwords; therefore, if a hacker were actually able to penetrate our Shopping Cart, they would not find the information they need to steal your credit card and your identity.

Now, let us return to this most interesting report.

"As correspondent Lesley Stahl reports, it's becoming a big problem. The retail industry got a wake-up call earlier this year, when TJX, the parent company of T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, disclosed it had suffered the worst high-tech heist in shopping history. Hackers raided the company's computer system, taking off with tens of millions of records. And what we have learned is: TJX could have prevented it. They collected too much personal information. They kept it too long. And finally, they didn't keep it according to appropriate security standards', says Canadian Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddart."

As this next segment reveals, much of the vulnerability is the result of the wireless system the retail stores are using to handle their transactions.

"This was a case of penetrating the network from without the stores because it isa wireless network. You can then capture the wireless transmissions if they're not sufficiently encrypted," Stoddart says. When you swipe your credit card, your data is often transmitted through a wireless router either to a bank for approval or to the store's main computer. But the signal carrying your information bleeds easily through the walls ... Stahl got her first lesson in something called "war driving" from Kris Harms, a computer forensic investigator for Mandiant, a computer security company, who showed her how hackers, outside in a van, can grab the stores' wireless data.

"So you and I are in this parking lot, and we park in front of one of these big stores. We can just pluck it, is what you're saying, right through the wall," Stahl remarked.

" 'Absolutely', Harms replied."

"All you need, he says, is a regular computer; the software he got for free. Within moments, Stahl and Harms started getting results."

" 'Right now, we're right in front of Best Buy', Stahl remarked.

" 'Right so, Best Buy has a wireless network', Harms explained.

"The computer identified which stores have wireless signals. Some stores hide their identities, others don't. Besides Best Buy, Staples popped up, and Home Depot -- with its signature color -- wasn't hard to identify either."

" 'It doesn't say Home Depot, but it says 'Orange,' Stahl noted. "

Wireless transmissions can be encrypted, but too many retailers refuse to upgrade to it because the upgrade is expensive. The result is that you are highly at risk whenever you buy anything in a lot of the most popular retailers in America. You can avoid all this vulnerability by buying online. With online retailing already poised for a big increase this year, this '60 Minutes' documentary might spur even more people to order online rather than through the traditional store.

Cutting Edge has been noting often since February, 2004, that President Bush seems to be the target of a campaign of discreditation designed to thoroughly dishonor him and the Christian Right who has supported him all these years.

Two major War Criminal Charges are now being powerfully publicized.

Sin Will Always Carry You Further Than You Want To Go And Keep You Longer Than You Want To Stay! --

--------Concluding Inspiration ---------------"What is thy servant, that thou shouldest look upon such a dead dog as I am?" 2 Samuel 9:8

If Mephibosheth was thus humbled by David's kindness, what shall we be in the presence of our gracious Lord? The more grace we have, the less we shall think of ourselves, for grace, like light, reveals our impurity. Eminent saints have scarcely known to what to compare themselves, their sense of unworthiness has been so clear and keen. "I am," says holy Rutherford, "a dry and withered branch, a piece of dead carcass, dry bones, and not able to step over a straw." In another place he writes, "Except as to open outbreakings, I want nothing of what Judas and Cain had."

The meanest objects in nature appear to the humbled mind to have a preference above itself, because they have never contracted sin: a dog may be greedy, fierce, or filthy, but it has no conscience to violate, no Holy Spirit to resist. A dog may be a worthless animal, and yet by a little kindness it is soon won to love its master, and is faithful unto death; but we forget the goodness of the Lord, and follow not at His call. The term "dead dog" is the most expressive of all terms of contempt, but it is none too strong to express the self- abhorrence of instructed believers. They do not affect mock modesty, they mean what they say, they have weighed themselves in the balances of the sanctuary, and found out the vanity of their nature. At best, we are but clay, animated dust, mere walking hillocks; but viewed as sinners, we are monsters indeed.

Let it be published in heaven as a wonder, that the Lord Jesus should set His heart's love upon such as we are. Dust and ashes though we be, we must and will "magnify the exceeding greatness of His grace." Could not His heart find rest in heaven? Must He needs come to these tents of Kedar for a spouse, and choose a bride upon whom the sun had looked? O heavens and earth, break forth into a song, and give all glory to our sweet Lord Jesus. (C.H. Spurgeon, "Morning and Evening Devotions")
