A few months ago, Andrea Hernandez was expelled from her high school in San Antonio, Texas for refusing to carry an RFID student identification. Hernandez explained that the chipped ID was the "mark of the beast" and wouldn't wear it due to religious beliefs and sued the school. Although the school removed the chip from the ID, a judge ruled against the student's favor. Rutherford Institute President John Whitehead, the girl's attorney, explains to RT's Kristine Frazao.
"Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness -- and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we're being brainwashed to believe. The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling -- their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability. Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them. Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing." ― Arundhati Roy
"There is scarcely a king (or would-be-king) in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh—get first all the peoples money, then all their lands, and then make them and all their children slaves forever."
Writings of Thomas Jefferson
What is the significance of the mysterious pyramids, obelisks, and other Egyptian architecture and monuments rising across America? Will Barack Obama become America's first "Pharaoh?" Could the intuitively intelligent Senator from Illinois be destined to become the second coming of Osiris, the Egyptian Sun God? It was Osiris, the ancients believed, whose spirit was reincarnated in the person of the Pharaoh. Honored as the Lord of the Underworld, the divine Osiris is the very same deity depicted on America's one-dollar bill—as the All-Seeing-Eye in the capstone hovering over the Novus Ordo Seclorum pyramid.
Obama is "The One"
Commentators have noted the stunning messianic tone to Barack Obama's presidential campaign. His followers reverently speak of Obama as "The One;" they print impressive eye-catching posters of their candidate's handsome face, glowing, surrounded by radiant sun rays. They boast of Obama's extraordinary oratory skills and point to his uncanny ability to inspire the masses.
In all these things and more, the countenance and leadership qualities of Barack Obama seem to be amazingly reminiscent of those attributed to Egypt's ages-old Sun god. Egypt, of course, is situated geographically in north Africa. Obama's roots, meanwhile, can be traced to three continents. His birth to a white mother was in America; he was raised as a boy in Indonesia, in Asia; but his biological father, a black man, came from Kenya, in Africa.

Obama & Osiris: Fascinating Parallels
The Egyptian deity Osiris was usually depicted as black, but sometimes, in his guise as god of agriculture and vegetation, as green in color. Obama is ideologically a doctrinaire environmentalist and is portrayed by Democrats as the ecologically correct "Green" candidate.
Osiris had many titles, including "The Great Word." He was said to be endowed with "the creative power of speech." Likewise, Obama's creative power of speech has enabled him to draw huge, cheering crowds of 75,000 in Portland, Oregon, and some 200,000 in Berlin, Germany.
Osiris was proclaimed to be the "World Teacher," a great, traveling teacher-god who "civilized the world." Barack Obama's recent travels to Israel and to Europe were, indeed, remarkable. In Berlin, he declared, "This is our moment...This is our time." We have it in our power, he assured the masses watching on television around the globe, to "remake the world."
Osiris was deemed to be a "living god," for his spirit entered into the body and soul of the living Pharaoh, leader of the people. As a man-god, the Pharaoh taught the people the proper form of worship. He consolidated and unified the diverse religious sects of Egypt and established himself as the incarnation of Osiris, "God above the gods."
It perhaps deserves noting that in his Berlin "New World Order" speech, Senator Obama spoke of the necessity of uniting the three major world religions—Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.
Osiris required sacrifice of the people and made slaves of millions. Barack Obama, in his speeches, has warned, "sacrifice will be required."
Osiris united all races and ethnic groups. Obama, in his Berlin address, urged that the barriers between ethnic groups, tribes, and races be dissolved. Immigrants, he said, must be welcomed by all nation-states. Obama also announced that he considers himself a citizen not only of the United States, but "a citizen of the world."
Tut's Sarcophagus Michelle Obama
Osiris was a god of peace but also of war. Obama has called for uniting the nations of Europe side-by-side with the United States in a perpetuation of the ongoing bogus "War on Terror." Far from being a peace-maker, in Berlin, Obama made a clarion call for intensification of global conflict, with the pretense of this being a holy war against the remnants of the dreaded Osama Bin Laden and his rag-tag band of fanatical Moslem separatists and zealots.
Obama, then, portrays himself as a type of priest for the whole world and all its populace. Like the ancient Pharaohs, whom he emulates, he is the One who promises to bring peace, prosperity, and plenty—new life—to the land. But, at the same time, he threatens his rebellious enemies with ruthless and imminent military destruction. Osiris, after all, was known as the "Avenger."

Host: John B. Wells
Guests: Robert Young Pelton, Stewart Rhodes
Author and adventurer Robert Young Pelton discussed the geopolitical situation in various countries such as Afghanistan, his experiences working with private military contractors, and the war trends he currently sees happening. The mistake the US made with Afghanistan was getting into the nation-building business, installing Hamid Karzai as the president, and creating a kind of "kleptocracy," he said. Currently, US soldiers go out and arrest or kill people identified as murderers or terrorists, yet at the same time the Afghan government is working diligently to bring these murderers and terrorists into political power, so it's a no-win situation for the US, he commented.
Regarding, the Benghazi assault in Libya, repeated requests for increased security were turned down by Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, Pelton noted. Then, "instead of admitting that this had been a predictable and expected situation, the State Dept. came up with a ridiculous story about a video that incited these people to riot, even though the actual al-Qaeda insurgents were saying, 'no, that's not why we attacked your Embassy,'" he detailed. The problem with al-Qaeda, he continued, is that they are now spread across the globe like a franchise, and can't be attacked on a single battlefield.
Pelton analyzed the situation in countries such as Russia, and Mexico, as well as various nations in Africa, and how AFRICOM (United States Africa Command) has been deployed. He also talked about how private contractors are often ex-military personnel who discover that they can make more money as a contractor, and won't have to be constrained by military regulations. There has been an increase in the use of proxy forces, where for instance in Uganda, the US hired the Ugandan army to go after the Al-Shabaab terrorists in Somalia, he reported.
2nd Amendment Rights
First hour guest, Stewart Rhodes, founder of the Oath Keepers, talked about 2nd Amendment rights, and reacted to the news that Pres. Obama could use executive orders to restrict guns. He suggested that citizens should resist any orders to disarm, and that the administration may be trying to take people's guns away before a coming collapse. Further, he argued that military semiautomatic rifles like the AR15 or AK47 are exactly the kind of arms people might need to defend themselves against tyranny
