Oaks, Quorum of the 12 Apostles. Critics' Arguments Latter-day Saints are repeatedly encouraged to rely on a witness of the spirit i. Holy Ghost to personally authenticate the truthfulness of the origins and content of the Book of Mormon. Given constant encouragement from general and local leaders of reliance on supernatural manifestations a testimony over testable claims, it is not surprising that many faithful Latter-Day Saints seem unfazed by empirical evidence or the lack of it contradicting Book of Mormon claims, whether the research is conducted by Mormon or non-Mormon archaeologists and historians.
Tony Cartalucci - Just a Lousy Journalist? His writing focuses on the International dimension; the foreign interference in Thailand. While there is no doubt that no nation is an island and foreign groups with their own agendas interfere in all nations for their own personal ends, Tony has been very selective in which foreign groups he writes on, what their intentions are and who they work with in Thailand.
I write now to expose some of the glaring omissions he has purposefully made and encourage you to ask; What groups does this foreigner in Thailand belong to and what is his agenda? I have been aware of his work for a year now. It started with the tragic events in Bangkok.
Protesters were gunned down, soldiers died too, and foreign journalists, nurses and emergency workers were killed too, even delivery boys going about their business were gunned down.
It's important to point out at this juncture that the red in the Thai Flag represents the Thai people. This is why they have chosen to be a Red Movement, it is not a left wing movement, it encompasses all of the common people of Thailand.
Over the period of a year he continued along the same vein and added further incontestable facts to his writing. Thaksin was in the Council on Foreign Relations.
He has also continued with his nationalist ideological writing, praising the currently unelected government and Thai nationalists, while condemning all that they condemn with a fierce and violent passion; Highlighting some realities in Thailand such as the lax approach to enforcing Intellectual Property rights to essential drugs, which can not honestly be attributed to any political faction, and attributing them to the nationalists.
What follows is not so much a defence of the Red Movement, it's purpose is to provide a clearer and truer picture of the situation in Thailand.
A response to the nationalist demagoguery of Tony Cartalucci's contrived and deceptive polemic. Perhaps, we should start with some glaring omissions. He was also a member of the Carlyle Asia Advisory Board.
He, however, remained on the board for three years more than Thaksin, who left in Anand only left when the board was disbanded in He supported the military coup which ousted Thaksin and was surprised that the international community condemned it.
He has sat with George W. Bush at the Global Leadership Foundation. The list goes on and on. And so, the first questions arises; Who is more intimately linked with Western interests? Who is 'handled by Globalist Masters'?
Why was Anand surprised by international condemnation of the coup? Surin Pitsuwan Surin Pitsuwan is another opponent of Thaksin and a coup supporter. Speaking at an 'Asian Voices' seminar in Brussels, Belgium, the director of Thailand's Democratic Party believed that democracy did not die in the coup led by army general Sonthi Boonyaratklin, but was, in fact, saved just in time.
The BBC quoted Senator Mechai Viravaidya as saying, "I'm delighted he's gone," He received money and an award from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for his work on family planning which saw one of the most rapid declines in fertility in modern history.
As head of Thailand's largest NGO, he is not alone in coming out in support of nationalists as the vast majority of Thai NGOs are funded by the Thai government and support their funders in their opposition of the Red Movement.
Before and during the mass protest of Thaksin's supporters, the UDDThaksin started mentioning the name of Prem publicly. The UDD leaders harshly blasted Prem for meddling in politics, calling him by using a term of 'ammatya' or 'aristocrat', as a threat to democracy since he has never been democratically elected.
He became unelected Prime Minister of Thailand in Above are a just a few influential Thai people with links to the same organisations as Thaksin, and more.
Tony Cartalucci accuses these organisations of being foreign bodies interfering in Thailand's domestic politics via Thaksin and the Red Movement.

Again the questions arise; Who is more influenced by these foreign interests? Why does Tony only highlight Thaksin's links and not the links of the enormously powerful and influential opponents of Thaksin?
Omission of the IMF Tony Cartalucci has stated that "Thailand's answer to the IMF, and globalization in general was profound in both implications as well as in its understanding of globalization's end game.
In his first year in office, he inaugurated three heavy spending programmes that directly contradicted the IMF edicts: These policies did not bring on the inflationary crisis that the IMF and conservative local economists expected.
Instead they buoyed the economy and cemented Thaksin's massive support among the rural and urban poor.
This was the 'good' side of Thaksin."The story of oil is the story of the modern world. And this is the story of those who helped shape that world, and how the oil-igarchy they created is on the verge of monopolizing life itself.".

Two decades ago a UCLA geography professor named Jared Diamond published Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies. Diamond hypothesized that the arc of human history was dramatically shifted by geographic, environmental, biological, and other factors, resulting in the worldwide dominance of the leading industrial powers during the past years.
