Waking Up To Secret Combinations

This forum is for discussion of Secret Combinations: who/what they are and how to overcome them. "A secret combination that seeks to overthrow the freedom of all lands...is increasing its evil influence and control over America and the entire world." (ETB / Ether 8:18-25.)

I have it. It's full of useful quotes, many of which you're probably quite familiar. However, as you already know, quotes, even from the Prophets, don't necessarily spark members to action.

Chapter 7, Secret Combinations and Money in the US, is a good place to start those who have no idea about the evil origins and purposes of the Federal Reserve.
As a prophet reveals the truth it divides the people. (T)he worldly either want to close the mouth of the prophet, or else act as if the prophet didn’t exist, rather than repent of their sins. Popularity is never a test of truth. Ezra Taft Benson

"This book is essential for these perilous times! It sounds the warning trumpet, alerting the Saints to imminent dangers that are rapidly crescendoing in their severity. First, the secret combinations of old, using the Book of Mormon account of Korihor as a model is examined. Teachings, tactics, methods and practices of these ancient groups are analyzed and a model is developed which can be used to identify similar organizations that exist today. Shifting the focus to the present, warnings concerning the individual and the family are presented. Next, the view widens to the citizens of the United States. Then the panorama is broadened again to get a worldwide perspective. The book warns of conspiracies on the individual level, related to sexual perversions, homosexuality, abortion, pornography, drugs and Satan worship. At the family level, attacks on family unity and the traditional nuclear family are discussed. Challenges to parenting, child and spouse abuse, and problems in moderns education are illuminated. Terrorism, organized crime, gangs and political corruption are discussed on a broader level. Significant questions about the nation's vulnerability in connection with its monetary policies and serious indebtedness are raised. The history of the Federal Reserve System is examined. The way taxes are used to control the people and the pulpits of the nation is exposed. Opposing views concerning the sanctity and instrumentality of the U.S. Constitution are also presented. On an international level, the warning cry is raised concerning the rapid move toward one world government. This movement's impact is examined in therms of international finance and banking, environmental concerns, population control, youth education, control of civil unrest and the right to bear arms, and international control of religion. The final chapter is a series of recommendations to individual latter-day Saints suggesting appropriate ways to work towards the preservation of their freedoms. Surely, no book can be no more appropriate for these tumultuous last days that Secret Combinations Today: A Voice of Warning."

The fact that it comes from a latter-day apostle might make it more credible to some Latter-day Saints.

I goofed. The book "Secret Combinations Today: A Voice of Warning" is written by Robert E. Hales, not Robert D. Hales, the Apostle. I should have checked that carefully. It makes no sense to me that an apostle would publish a book or give a talk that would expose the secret combinations. No prophet or apostle has ever done that to my knowledge. To do so would provoke retribution against the Church that would seriously hinder its main mission of promoting the gospel of Jesus the Christ.

Whoops! Don't you ever make any more mistakes, and go into a corner for time out. :ymhug:
Actually, I think I failed to give the author's name. This was my bad. However, I'm still curious if anyone has read the book, if it is similar to all the other books written about the Constitution and all the pros and cons of upholding it these days, if you will.
Thanks for clarifying, Lundbaek.

PS Perhaps I need to read it and make a book report on it, huh? :D

I have ordered the book and plan to start reading first about the latter-day secret combinations. That's what an ancient prophet told us to awake to and what latter-day prophets warned us about.

I use to also believe the typical mafia, gangs, KKK as the secret societies, until several years ago when my eyes were open. Thanks, lundbaek for a great post.

I also believe the brethren to carefully choose their words, because they can't come straight out and proclaim X or Y to be secret societies etc. We are to see them for who they are and open our eyes to our awful situation. I caught on to President Nelson's talk this past general conference..."As conflicts between nations escalate, as cowardly terrorists prey on the innocent, and as corruption in everything from business to government becomes increasingly commonplace, what can help us? What can help each of us with our personal struggles and with the rigorous challenge of living in these latter days?" I knew what he was referring to when talking about "corruption in everything from business to government." Many would choose to believe, NOT in OUR country, but atlas it IS our country.

What was once secret and hidden is becoming more and more open and brazen.

Subject: A permanent Muslim refugee crisis?

Excellent article that hits on the sad truth. This is a pragmatic overview of what appears to be an insoluble problem affecting much of the world as we know it today.

Forget the Syrian Civil War for a moment. Even without the Sunnis and Shiites competing to give each other machete haircuts every sunny morning, there would still be a permanent Muslim refugee crisis.

The vast majority of civil wars over the last ten years have taken place in Muslim countries. Muslim countries are also some of the poorest in the world. And Muslim countries also have high birth rates.

Combine violence and poverty with a population boom and you get a permanent migration crisis.

No matter what happens in Syria or Libya next year, that permanent migration crisis isn’t going away.

The Muslim world is expanding unsustainably. In the Middle East and Asia, Muslims tend to underperform their non-Muslim neighbors both educationally and economically. Oil is the only asset that gave Muslims any advantage and in the age of fracking, its value is a lot shakier than it used to be.

The Muslim world had lost its old role as the intermediary between Asia and the West. And it has no economic function in the new world except to blackmail it by spreading violence and instability.

Muslim countries with lower literacy rates, especially for women, are never going to be economic winners at any trade that doesn’t come gushing out of the ground. Nor will unstable dictatorships ever be able to provide social mobility or access to the good life. At best they’ll hand out subsidies for bread.

The Muslim world has no prospects for getting any better. The Arab Spring was a Western delusion.

Growing populations divided along tribal and religious lines are competing for a limited amount of land, power and wealth. Countries without a future are set to double in size.

There are only two solutions; war or migration.

Either you fight and take what you want at home. Or you go abroad and take what you want there.

Let’s assume that the Iraq War had never happened. How would a religiously and ethnically divided Iraq have managed its growth from 13 million in the eighties to 30 million around the Iraq War to 76 million in 2050?

The answer is a bloody civil war followed by genocide, ethnic cleansing and migration.

What’s happening now would have happened anyway. It was already happening under Saddam Hussein.

Baghdad has one of the highest population densities in the world. And it has no future. The same is true across the region. The only real economic plan anyone here has is to get money from the West.

Plan A for getting money out of the West is creating a crisis that will force it to intervene. That can mean anything from starting a war to aiding terrorists that threaten the West. Muslim countries keep shooting themselves in the foot so that Westerners will rush over to kiss the booboo and make it better.

Plan B is to move to Europe.

What's This?
And Plan B is a great plan. It’s the only real economic plan that works. At least until the West runs out of native and naïve Westerners who foot the bill for all the migrants, refugees and outright settlers.

For thousands of dollars, a Middle Eastern Muslim can pay to be smuggled into Europe. It’s a small investment with a big payoff. Even the lowest tier welfare benefits in Sweden are higher than the average salary in a typical Muslim migrant nation. And Muslim migrants are extremely attuned to the payoffs. It’s why they clamor to go to Germany or Sweden, not Greece or Slovakia. And it’s why they insist on big cities with an existing Muslim social welfare infrastructure, not some rural village.

A Muslim migrant is an investment for an entire extended family. Once the young men get their papers, family reunification begins. That doesn’t just mean every extended family member showing up and demanding their benefits. It also means that the family members will be selling access to Europe to anyone who can afford it. Don’t hike or raft your way to Europe. Mohammed or Ahmed will claim that you’re a family member. Or temporarily marry you so you can bring your whole extended family along.

Mohammed gets paid. So does Mo’s extended family which brokers these transactions. Human trafficking doesn’t just involve rafts. It’s about having the right family connections.

And all that is just the tip of a very big business iceberg.

Where do Muslim migrants come up with a smuggling fee that amounts to several years of salary for an average worker? Some come from wealthy families. Others are sponsored by crime networks and family groups that are out to move everything from drugs to weapons to large numbers of people into Europe.

Large loans will be repaid as the new migrants begin sending their new welfare benefits back home. Many will be officially unemployed even while unofficially making money through everything from slave labor to organized crime. European authorities will blame their failure to participate in the job market on racism rather than acknowledging that they exist within the confines of an alternate economy.

It’s not only individuals or families who can pursue Plan B. Turkey wants to join the European Union. It’s one solution for an Islamist populist economy built on piles of debt. The EU has a choice between dealing with the stream of migrants from Turkey moving to Europe. Or all of Turkey moving into Europe.

The West didn’t create this problem. Its interventions, however misguided, attempted to manage it.

Islamic violence is not a response to Western colonialism. Not only does it predate it, but as many foreign policy experts are so fond of pointing out, its greatest number of casualties are Muslims. The West did not create Muslim dysfunction. And it is not responsible for it. Instead the dysfunction of the Muslim world keeps dragging the West in. Every Western attempt to ameliorate it, from humanitarian aid to peacekeeping operations, only opens up the West to take the blame for Islamic dysfunction.

The permanent refugee crisis is a structural problem caused by the conditions of the Muslim world.

The West can’t solve the crisis at its source. Only Muslims can do that. And there are no easy answers. But the West can and should avoid being dragged down into the black hole of Muslim dysfunction.

Even Germany’s Merkel learned that the number of refugees is not a finite quantity that can be relieved with a charitable gesture. It’s the same escalating number of people that will show up if you start throwing bags of money out of an open window. And it’s a number that no country can absorb.

Muslim civil wars will continue even if the West never intervenes in them because their part of the world is fundamentally unstable. These conflicts will lead to the displacement of millions of people. But even without violence, economic opportunism alone will drive millions to the West. And those millions carry with them the dysfunction of their culture that will make them a burden and a threat.

If Muslims can’t reconcile their conflicts at home, what makes us think that they will reconcile them in Europe? Instead of resolving their problems through migration, they only export them to new shores. The same outbursts of Islamic violence, xenophobia, economic malaise and unsustainable growth follow them across seas and oceans, across continents and countries. Distance is no answer. Travel is no cure.

Solving Syria will solve nothing. The Muslim world is full of fault lines. It’s growing and it’s running out of room to grow. We can’t save Muslims from themselves. We can only save ourselves from their violence.

The permanent Muslim refugee crisis will never stop being our crisis unless we close the door.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Fortunately, it is not just me that recognizes that the immigration crises, both in the mid-East and at the U.S.'s southern border, have been engineered and are being used, at least in part, to undermine Western culture, Western economies, national sovereignty, and even nationhood, in order to promote/advance what globalists call "global governance" and their "new world order". I wish more Americans understood that.

Unfortunately, the people who should be most aware of this conspiracy (maybe they would better understand the term "secret combination") are generally oblivious to it, and in some cases assisting it.

Talk about the Constitution, this man knows his 1789 Constitution and uses that knowledge against the court system that uses "sea laws" against "We The People." Watch and listen closely. I declare...WOW!

This man's knowledge is worth admiration and his stance against courtroom barbarism respected, learned and espoused.

I have a small booklet or brochure entitled "The Book of Mormon and MODERN Secret Combinations, published by DEFENDING UTAH. ORG. On Page 1: "The subject of secret combinations in the Book of Mormon occurs every 1.2 pages of text. There are some 442 verses, that in their context, deal with this topic. In fact, the topic of Secret Combinations in mentioned more than any other subject with the exception of our Savior and His Atonement for us.In making the record of the Jaredite people and the Secret combinations among them, Moroni takes some time out to speak directly to us in OUR DAY."
"Wherefore, O ye Gentiles, it is wisdom in God that these things should be shown unto you, that thereby ye may repent of your sins, and suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you, which are built uup to get power and gain - and...the sword of justice of the Eternal God shall fall upon you, to your overthrow and destruction if ye shall suffer these things to be." (Ether 8:23)

A few statements on this subject that some might not be aware of:

Barry Goldwater, in his book With No Apologies , wrote: "Rear Admiral Chester Ward, USN (Ret'd), who was a member of the CFR for sixteen years, has written The most powerful clique in these elitist groups have one objective in common - they want to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the national independence of the United States. Their goal is to impose a benign stability on the quarreling family of nations through merger and consolidation. They see the elimination of national boundaries, the suppression of racial and ethnic loyalties as the most expeditious avenue to world peace." Pg. 278

"There also exists another alliance - at first glance a strange one...the alliance between our Communist leaders and your capitalists. This alliance in not new...We observe continuous and steady support by the businessmen of the West of the Soviet Communist leaders." (Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, in a 30 June 1975 speech at the Washington D.C. Hilton,)

"Actually, what we are witnessing is a very carefully and methodically executed program designed to destroy constitutional government as we have known it and make a shambles of the society which has wanted to keep the Constitution alive. Only then can a highly centralized, socialist state be established." (Dr. W. Cleon Skousen, "The Naked Capitalist", Pg. 115).

"There seemed to be no lengths to which some American officials would not go in aiding Russia to master the secret of nuclear fission." (Major George Racey Jordan, one of the WW2 Lend-Lease expediters, then a U.S. Army Air force Major, "From Major Jordan’s Diaries" Pg.96 )

"There is a sinister influence at work in our country, which if it is not checked, intends to completely undermine the original purpose of the formation of our government...and to bring all the world into one control and one system, which for purposes of deception of the plain people, they would call a ‘world democracy’, but which in fact it is their plan to make the rule of the wealth grabbers, maintained by simple organization of themselves and disorganization of the masses, pitting the masses against each other... The few now desire to cut off every possible avenue of escape from industrial slavery for the masses.” –Senator Charles A. Lindbergh Sr., in a speech given July 5, 1916

I disagree. The Constitution belongs to "WE THE PEOPLE" in a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy; not under socialism and tyranny. We are a "people", not a citizen. We the People have rights, a citizen may not have rights because other countries have citizens.

In line with secret combinations is the saving of the Constitution. BrianM has a great list of quotes here to be considered. One is (not verbatim)...When will the Saints, or better yet, the Elders of Israel wake up and save the Constitution?

Last year (2016) as we studied the Book of Mormon in our Gospel Doctrine Sunday school classes there were several opportunities to discuss the secret combinations among the Jaredites and the Nephites and even in modern times, without deviating from the instructors manual. I noted that in each case the instructors in our ward skated past those opportunities.

With so much apathy, how will any Elders be able to save the Constitution, now or in the future?
Who started the false idea that the state of the Constitution and political problems isn't to be discussed in church? Especially when the Constitution is akin to scripture, both coming from God and addressing freedom? Do people assume that Moroni was a nut case? He held up a Title of Liberty and defended his home, his family and his faith by going up against evil. Today we have our own Title of Liberty, and people trample on it daily.

Speaking of the Constitution, here is some interesting news:

I have been persuaded that the Constitution, the topic of secret combinations, and liberty are not discussed by the First Presidency, the Q-12 or the 70s because of concern that doing so would incurr the wrath of the PTB / latter-day gadiantons, who would attack the Church in ways that would seriously frustrate the Church's missionary and building programs. Occasionally an apostle will say or write something, usually to a limited audience or readers, about these things, but nothing like years ago. For example, if you can find it, read the article by President Packer in the August 2010 Ensign, Pg. 23, lower right of page. I believe the LDGs have gotten too far above us for the Church to risk antagonizing them.

Is this what you are referring?


A Time of Spiritual War

We live in a time of war, that spiritual war that will never end. Moroni warned us that the secret combinations begun by Gadianton “are had among all people. …

“Wherefore, O ye Gentiles [and the term Gentile in that place in the Book of Mormon refers to us in our generation], it is wisdom in God that these things should be shown unto you, that thereby ye may repent of your sins, and suffer not that these murderous combinations shall get above you. …

“Wherefore, the Lord commandeth you, when ye shall see these things come among you that ye shall awake to a sense of your awful situation, because of this secret combination which shall be among you” (Ether 8:20, 23–24).

Atheists and agnostics make nonbelief their religion and today organize in unprecedented ways to attack faith and belief. They are now organized, and they pursue political power. You will be hearing much about them and from them. Much of their attack is indirect in mocking the faithful, in mocking religion.

The types of Sherem, Nehor, and Korihor live among us today (see Jacob 7:1–21; Alma 1:1–15; 30:6–60). Their arguments are not so different from those in the Book of Mormon.

You who are young will see many things that will try your courage and test your faith. All of the mocking does not come from outside of the Church. Let me say that again: all of the mocking does not come from outside of the Church. Be careful that you do not fall into the category of mocking.

The Lord promised, “If ye are prepared ye shall not fear” (D&C 38:30).

Even Moroni faced the same challenge. He said, because of his weakness in writing:

“I fear … the Gentiles shall mock at our words.

“[And the Lord said to him:] Fools mock, but they shall mourn; and my grace is sufficient for the meek, that they shall take no advantage of your weakness;

“And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them” (Ether 12:25–27).
