As one means of managing the worldwide HIV/AIDS epidemic, the UN Global Commission on HIV and the Law is proposing the global legalization of what they call “sex workers” (aka prostitutes) with the goal of de-stigmatizing them so they will seek care and treatment and thus stem one of the major sources of the infection.
In a report entitled: “Risks, Rights and Health” the commission made its proposal after scientific studies and analysis of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. They also did regional interviews with people involved in the sex industry to see how they might want to implement recommendations.
The full report may be downloaded online.

In the first Star Wars movie, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, and the Jedi master, Obi-Wan Kenobi walk into an space bar where Obi-Wan uses his Jedi powers to confuse the minds of the creatures in the bar. He softly speaks to an aggressive creature threatening Luke while waving his hand gently in front of the creature. The creature loses the aggression with which he approached Obi-Wan and Luke, allowing them to go about their business.
There is a certain candidate for reelection as President of the United States in the 2012 election that practices similar techniques. Barack Hussein Obama-Wan Kenobi tries to emulate the Jedi master in speeches for his campaign. He makes patently untrue statements that regarding his success in economic recovery, gently waves his hand or uses his voice to calm his audience. The audience continues to blindly support him in their own, unique “fat, dumb and happy” way.
Some have suggested that Obama-Wan is using Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) methods drawn from the work of Dr. Milton Erickson in “conversational” hypnosis to mesmerize his audiences and deprive them of the ability to engage in cognitive thought. Critical thinking is generally lacking in the population of our once-great nation today as a result of our liberal education system.
A Western Center for Journalism article, entitled, “How Obama Literally Hypnotized America,” posted July 8 reported:
Barack Obama’s speeches contain the hypnosis techniques of Dr. Milton Erickson, M.D. who developed a form of “conversational” hypnosis that could be hidden in seemingly normal speech and used on patients without their knowledge for therapy purposes. Obama’s speeches intentionally contain:
· Trance Inductions
· Hypnotic Anchoring
· Pacing and Leading
· Pacing, Distraction and Utilization
· Critical Factor Bypass
· Stacking Language Patterns
· Preprogrammed Response Adaptation
· Linking Statements/ Causality Bridges
· Secondary Hidden Meanings/Imbedded Suggestions
· Emotion Transfer
· Non-Dominant Hemisphere Programming
In Part 2 of the Western Center for Journalism article posted July 10, the author stated:
Obama’s actions are far more deceptive than simply lying.
Most of our beliefs come to us from our own rational judgment and conscious analysis of the world. For example, we know it good to wake up in the morning and do something because we rationally know the consequences of staying in bed all day. When we like people, it is usually due to a combination of our rational judgment and how that person naturally makes us feel about them. We try to make people like us more by following social norms, making people feel good, smiling, and so on.
However, a very small percentage of the population actually study subconscious manipulation of not only how people feel about them, but how to manipulate and alter the beliefs we usually come to by our rational judgment, reason, and experience. These people study specifically how to sideline this rational judgment, reason, and experience, and natural feelings, and bend people’s feelings and will through the application of this branch of psychiatry to their interactions.
Many conservative are puzzled at the ability Obama-Wan has to say things that are patently untruthful and have them believed by his listeners. NLP conditioning may hold the answer to the question.
How else can normally intelligent people be seduced to believe the lies BHO speaks? Like the mythical god Janus with two heads and able to speak out of both sides, Obama says he believes in people being able to get wealthy, yet he asserts that, because they “did not do it by themselves,” they should share the wealth with everyone else. This Communist philosophy did not fly in Russia and other Marxist countries and ultimately failed, demonstrating its lack of economic viability.
So one might ask, “Why do we now think it will work here in America?” The very nature of man is self-serving since the Fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. The Christian Bible tells us of the self-centeredness of mankind that will be increasingly manifest in the end times (2 Tim. 3:1-5).
A manipulative leader such as our current President will take full advantage of this phenomenon. Obama-Wan is only the tip of the iceberg—an example for all of us to be aware of and to avoid emulating. The selfishness disease is endemic in leadership of western cultures and pandemic around the world.
Wake up America! Learn just how you are being manipulated and fight back. Resist the efforts to deny you your God-given ability to think and discern!

Justice Department releasing news about indictments of five men for the death of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in close juxtaposition to Eric Holder’s being held in contempt of Congress for his part in the Fast & Furious affair is utterly contemptible. It is a clear attempt by Holder to divert attention from the congressional action and a blatant effort to make himself appear as a law-abiding bureaucrat.
Holder is obviously following in the steps of his mentor, Barack Hussein Obama—a studied obnubilator himself.
It is obvious that the Obama administration has absolutely no intention of following any plan other than their own to destroy America and ignore the rule of law.

My book, Spiritual Tsunami: Bible Prophecy and World Events are Converging exhorts Christian believers to become Watchers. What it does not say is that Christians should stay on the sidelines and just watch! Watchers must become active Warriors in these difficult times.
I understand that there is a tendency on the part of born-again Christians to want to simply place trust in the Lord and thereby passively observe world events, silently trusting in God to sort it all out. Isaiah told us that, “. . . those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31 NKJ). Note that “wait[ing] on the Lord is an active behavior and not a passive behavior. It has to do with actively centering attention on God’s provision while continuing to walk with Him.
It is good to be aware of what God is doing. We must, however take our place as warriors in the spiritual battle going on in our world today as events move us ever closer to the end times Jesus spoke of in Matthew 24 and 25.
The Lord reminds us that we should be repenting and praying to Him for deliverance from many of the bad things taking place today and in the future. Of course, it is God’s plans that will ultimately succeed in victory over the evil forces plaguing our world right now.
Christians must stand with God as fellow warriors. The apostle Paul instructed believers in the city of Ephesus to:
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints (Ephesians 6:10 NIV).
Note that after warning of the forces at work, Paul reminded Christians that the battle is against the “spiritual forces of evil” in heavenly realms and so they should don protective body armor and take up two weapons to counter the efforts of the enemy: spiritual prayer and the word of God. We are to be fellow warriors with the Lord in the battle.
As I have reminded readers before on several occasions, God asks believers to “humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways,” so that He might “hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV).
Certainly, we must be vigilant watchers, learning and knowing the signs of the end times. Yet we must also prepare ourselves and engage in the acts of spiritual warriors to battle the forces that are working to destroy God’s people and creation.
