The Harbinger — A Review

“The bricks have fallen,
But we will rebuild with hewn stone;
The sycamores have been cut down,
But we will plant cedars in their place.”

In Jonathan’s Cahn’s stunning book, The Harbinger, “these are the words that seal a nation’s destiny.”

HarbingerThis riveting book asks and answers the questions, is it possible…

That there exists an ancient mystery that holds the secret of America’s future?
That this mystery is behind everything from 9/11 to the collapse of the global economy?
That God is now sending a prophetic message on which America’s future hangs?

Told through the eyes of fictional journalist Nouriel via a closed door meeting with a high-powered New York publishing executive, The Harbinger progressively demystifies ancient texts and their historical significance not only to ancient Israel, but to modern-day America. A story within a story, this captivating book takes the reader along on Nouriel’s mysterious travels and interactions with a 21st century prophet, who guides him along in his quest to unravel the esoteric messages contained in the nine seals with which he has been burdened. For Nouriel, the urgency is palpable; he is not only driven to reveal the warnings hidden in these seals, he’s been chosen specifically for this purpose, though he doesn’t make that discovery until the end.

As a reader, it’s nearly impossible to avoid experiencing the same sense of urgency and foreboding. From the beginning, Cahn’s book mesmerizingly draws you in and successively piques your interest as one after another of the puzzle pieces are put into place. With specific and jarring examples of the unknowing enactment of ancient biblical texts by America’s leaders in the years following 9/11 and the financial crisis; the explanation of the significance of specific numbers to particular occurrences in US history from 2001-2009; and the correlation between the Hebrew calendar and the one used today, The Harbinger proves its case methodically, logically and accurately.

For those whose constant refrain (even among Constitutional conservatives deeply concerned about our nation’s survival) is that in order to save America we must abandon social issues and focus exclusively on fiscal matters, this book’s message may not be welcome. It might even be derided and dismissed. Because The Harbinger not only echoes the same sentiments as the film Agenda: Grinding America Down, it takes its core message about the dire need to return to God to a much higher level, fully grounded in spiritual principles and rooted in historical events.

Toward the end of the book, the prophet makes this powerful statement which, when seen through the lens of our depraved Jerry Springer-ized culture, sets off internal alarm bells:

“With all the talk of God blessing America in the wake of 9/11, the great missing factor was repentance. Without that, everything else is null and void. America must face the magnitude of its moral and spiritual descent, the degrading of its culture…to the multitude of its idols…to its fall into even deeper immoralities.”

“The idols of…

“Carnality, impurity, greed, materialism, vanity, self-obsession…and the altars covered with the blood of its innocent. Without a change of course, there can be no change of destination. Only in repentance can judgment be averted, and only in a true turning away from darkness into light”.

From the promotion of abortion-on-demand as a taxpayer-funded “right”, not the murder of innocent human life; to the obsession with looking forever young as opposed to aging gracefully; to the elevation of vacuous, immoral and oftentimes criminal celebrities as role-models (while deriding famous, yet faithful servants of God like Tim Tebow as “controversial”), you could cite endless examples of America’s precipitous decline.

And yet, in spite of the warnings most would be hard-pressed to hold out any real hope of America as a society, as a country, atoning for its sins and returning to God.

But as the prophet reminds us at the end of the book:

“Judgment isn’t ultimately about nations — but people. As it’s written: ‘It’s appointed for a man once to die and then judgment’. After the end comes the Day of Judgment, in light of which all other judgments are only foreshadows. And no one is exempt. Each must stand before Him.”

A sobering reminder.

“District of Corruption” — A Review

Steve and I had the pleasure of screening Stephen K. Bannon’s latest effort, District of Corruption, a detailed, insightful and at times, eye-opening expose of the permanent political class in Washington D.C.

From the District of Corruption site:

The new Judicial Watch blockbuster feature documentary, District of Corruption, directed by Stephen K. Bannon, lays bare the lawless and unconstitutional Obama administration and makes the case for more openness, integrity, and honesty in government and leads the way for changing the climate of corruption that has gripped Washington, D.C. for far too long.

Lest anyone accuse Bannon of focusing exclusively on Obama’s corruption or of favoring Republicans over Democrats (a ludicrous charge to begin with, given his conservative bona fides), his film actually takes three administrations to task: Clinton, Bush and Obama, focusing on very specific scandals during each one’s tenure:


Presents a gripping lineup of the gross malfeasance and unparalleled secrecy of our government today. The film exposes Obama administration scandals such as Solyndra, Fast and Furious, Crony Capitalism, Czars, and its politicized Justice Department. This cabal of government insiders comprises an essentially Shadow Government that uses favoritism, regulatory power, and abuse of office to enrich the party faithful at the expense of the general public.

ACT 1:

Explores the recent history of the abuse of power in Washington during the Bush and Clinton administrations to put the current state of affairs in context. Act I will end as a dog-eared and beaten George W. Bush gives way to a Chicago politician claiming “Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this Presidency.”

ACT 2:

Covers more major Obama Scandals. Will briefly consider Obama the “community organizer,” the professor, and the State Senator before delving more deeply into the scandals (such as the Bailouts, White House Visitor Logs, Secrecy, White House Czars, Green Energy, Fast and Furious) that have marked the first four years of his Presidency. Act II ends with an exposé on White House secrecy controversy and sets up the stakes for the next election, specifically focusing on voter and election fraud.

ACT 3:

Provides an in-depth exploration of the Judicial Watch 2012 Election Integrity Project, the upcoming election, and will answer the questions: What is the meaning of these abuses of power to the rule of law and the future of the United States? And why is Judicial Watch absolutely essential as an advocate for the rule of law and independent watchdog for the people of the United States?

Although as a politically engaged American, I was already aware of much of the information presented in the film, since it delves so deeply into the machinations and motivations underscoring such betrayals as ChinaGate, FileGate, PardonGate, Bush’s “Let’s Move On” mentality regarding his predecessor, the Bush Administration’s decision to privately fly out members of the Saudi Royal Family on 9/11, TARP, Czars and ACORN, I came away with an even greater sense of urgency to not only vote Obama out of office, but to fight even harder for government accountability at all levels. I also came away with a deep, abiding respect and gratitude for Judicial Watch and their relentless quest to shine the spotlight on the permanent political class with its sickening sense of entitlement that compels them to secure their own self-interest above all — instead of doing right by the American people — to whom they owe their very tenure.

We The People entrust our leaders with the privilege of serving in a system that was designed “for the people, by the people and of the people”; watching District of Corruption, it is simultaneously disheartening and motivating to realize just how far off our current system of governance stands in relation to the vision conceived and implemented by our Founding Fathers.

But thanks to Stephen Bannon and Judicial Watch, Americans now know exactly what’s at stake and what is needed to restore our Republic. Watch the trailer below and then visit the District of Corruption site for information on showtimes and locations in your area. It is our country — let’s take it back.
