The Watchers Excerpt :

Using exclusive access to key insiders, Shane Harris charts the rise of America's surveillance state over the past twenty-five years and highlights a dangerous paradox: Our government's strategy has made it harder to catch terrorists and easier to spy on the rest of us. Our surveillance state was born in the brain of Admiral John Poindexter in 1983. Poindexter, Reagan's National Security Advisor, realized that the United States might have prevented the terrorist massacre of 241 Marines in Beirut if only intelligence agencies had been able to analyze in real time data they had on the attackers. Poindexter poured government know-how and funds into his dream-a system that would sift reams of data for signs of terrorist activity. Decades later, that elusive dream still captivates Washington. After the 2001 attacks, Poindexter returned to government with a controversial program, called Total Information Awareness, to detect the next attack. Today it is a secretly funded operation that can gather personal information on every American and millions of others worldwide. But Poindexter's dream has also become America's nightmare. Despite billions of dollars spent on this digital quest since the Reagan era, we still can't discern future threats in the vast data cloud that surrounds us all. But the government can now spy on its citizens with an ease that was impossible-and illegal-just a few years ago. Drawing on unprecedented access to the people who pioneered this high-tech spycraft, Harris shows how it has shifted from the province of right- wing technocrats to a cornerstone of the Obama administration's war on terror. Harris puts us behind the scenes and in front of the screens where twenty-first-century spycraft was born. We witness Poindexter quietly working from the private sector to get government to buy in to his programs in the early nineties. We see an army major agonize as he carries out an order to delete the vast database he's gathered on possible terror cells-an

The Watchers Excerpt :

In the vastness of space there are the Watchers. Who are they? Where did they come from? Those are the questions the Family of Man would like to answer. The Watchers are an enigmatic race that controls the universe in ways unknown to the Family of Man. They made their presence known only a few times in the history of the Family of Man. Popping in and out of existence, they offer aid and ideas at critical times. They brought a faction of the Family of Man back to their Homeworld to recolonize and develop what they feared had been destroyed by their sun. Humanity had gained their attention when nuclear weapons had been launched in space near Jupiter, an incident that could have changed the history of the human solar system. Come along with Aiden and Stovan as they attempt to discover the truth about these entities called: The Watchers.

The Eagle Watchers Excerpt :

Eagles have fascinated humans for millennia. For some, the glimpse of a distant eagle instantly becomes a treasured lifelong memory. Others may never encounter a wild eagle in their lifetime. This book was written by people who have dedicated years to the study of eagles, to provide an insider's view for all readers, but especially those who have never been up close and personal with these magnificent yet often misunderstood creatures. In their stories, twenty-nine leading eagle researchers share their remarkable field experiences, providing personal narratives that don't feature in their scientific publications. They tell of their fear at being stalked by grizzly bears, their surprise at being followed by the secret police, their embarrassment when accidentally firing mortar rockets over a school gymnasium, and their sense of awe at tracking eagles via satellite. The reader experiences the cultural shock of being guest of honor at a circumcision ceremony, the absurdity of sharing an aquatic car with the Khmer Rouge, and the sense of foreboding at being press-ganged into a frenzied tribal death march through the jungle. The Eagle Watchers covers twenty-four species on six continents, from well known (bald eagle; golden eagle), to obscure (black-and-chestnut eagle; New Guinea harpy eagle), and from common (African fish eagle) to critically endangered (Philippine eagle; Madagascar fish eagle). The diverse experiences vividly described in this book reveal the passion, dedication, and sense of adventure shared by those who study these majestic birds and strive for their conservation. Featuring stunning color photographs of the eagles, information on raptor conservation, a global list of all eagle species with ranges and conservation status, and a color map of the sites visited in the book, The Eagle Watchers will appeal to birders, conservationists, and adventure travelers alike. To further support the conservation programs described in this book, all royalties are bein

God s Court and Courtiers in the Book of the Watchers Excerpt :

First Enoch is an ancient Judean work that inaugurated the genre of apocalypse. Chapters 1-36 tell the story of the descent of angels called "Watchers" from heaven to earth to marry human women before the time of the flood, the chaos that ensued, and God's response. They also relate the journeying of the righteous scribe Enoch through the cosmos, guided by angels. Heaven, including the place and those who dwell there (God, the angels, and Enoch), plays a central role in the narrative. But how should heaven be understood? Existing scholarship, which presupposes "Judaism" as the appropriate framework, views the Enochic heaven as reflecting the temple in Jerusalem, with God's house replicating its architecture and the angels and Enoch functioning like priests. Yet recent research shows the Judeans constituted an ethnic group, and this view encourages a fresh examination of 1 Enoch 1-36. The actual model for heaven proves to be a king in his court surrounded by his courtiers. The major textual features are explicable in this perspective, whereas the temple-and-priests model is unconvincing. The author was a member of a nontemple, scribal group in Judea that possessed distinctive astronomical knowledge, promoted Enoch as its exemplar, and was involved in the wider sociopolitical world of their time.

The Judgments of the Watchers Excerpt :

The author of this book was driven by a vision that God so impressed upon him, that he was compelled to understand its interpretation and purpose. Contained herein, is a detailed account of the ancient Watchers, during the early times of earth's co-habitation with mankind. As such, we are finally given a meticulously clear account of the origin of not simply the sin nature, but the vehicle of the perversion and wickedness that we have inherited in our lives today. By way of a rebellion that was diabolical in nature, this wickedness was brought to the earthly plane, by a group of fallen angels from the angelic realm, who in their righteous state, were called Holy Watchers. These angelic hosts were created by God Himself, to act as protectors and guardians of mankind, in accordance with the Creator's purpose; however, there was a group of these Watchers (fallen angels) who left their heavenly abode, and their responsibility for which they were created, as protectorates for humanity, and were driven from Heaven by their own compulsion of lust for the beautiful women of the earth. The result has been catastrophic to mankind! The offspring of these "fallen angels" became the Giants in the land; the Nephilim, who brought forth such a vile and perverse nature of evil into the earth that God, the Father of Creation, was forced to bring His judgments upon the evil Watchers and their offspring. In the meantime, (even since the flood), the effect of this rebellious nature upon the earth, has been to defile mankind and everything aligned with goodness and truth . . . And mankind is still contending with this evil to this day.

Revelations of the Watchers Excerpt :

• Explains how the new Atlantis was rebuilt using ancient Lemurian construction techniques and how Poseidon was put in charge by nefarious Prince Caligastia • Explores the rise of shamanism, the hidden history of Akhenaten, and the privileged role of the Yazidi people in the spiritual evolution of the planet • Exposes how our planet is one of the worlds on which the rebel angels have been the accorded the privilege of a mortal incarnation During the angelic rebellion 203,000 years ago, which led to the quarantine of Earth and 36 other planets from the Multiverse, Georgia, an angel of Seraphic status, aligned herself with Lucifer and the rebel angels. After the rebellion, Georgia was permitted to remain on this planet and become a Watcher. Writing together with Timothy Wyllie, in this book Georgia provides her personal account of Earth during the second rise of Atlantis. Georgia explains how the new Atlantis was home to the few surviving Lemurians and was rebuilt using ancient Lemurian construction techniques. She reveals how Prince Caligastia put Poseidon in charge of the new Atlantis in order to keep him from interfering with the Prince’s imposition of monotheism in southern Palestine. She explores the rise of shamanism through the entheogenic use of power plants -- first on the Islands of Mu, then in the Nile Valley, and later among the Aborigines of Australia. She also looks at the hidden history of Pharaoh Akhenaten and the privileged role of the Yazidi people in the spiritual evolution of the planet--and how even today the attempts to extinguish their culture is the work of Caligastia’s agents. Interwoven with Georgia’s narrative of Earth’s ancient history are her observations of Timothy Wyllie’s current and previous lives, including his involvement with the Process Church, his struggle to leave it, and his spiritual activities after he left. Through her revelations, Georgia exposes the supreme significance of Earth in the larger Multiverse and
