In 2005 Robertson predicted that Bush would have victory after victory in his second term. He said Social Security reform proposals would be approved and Bush would nominate conservative judges to federal courts.
Lawmakers confirmed Bush's 2005 nominations of John Roberts and Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court. But the president's Social Security initiative was stalled.
"I have a relatively good track record," he said. "Sometimes I miss."
Diamonds are one of the reasons why Robertson, through his African Development Corporation, supported the Mobutu government of diamond-rich Zaire: Robertson had created something called (cynically, in my view) Operation Blessing as a kind of front for the activities of the ADC, which was interested in investing in diamond mines in Zaire. The only “Blessing” I could find was President Mobutu’s, the man for whom the term “kleptocracy” was created. Instead of running much-needed medical equipment, supplies, and doctors to relieve the ongoing genocide taking place in the remote Zairean province where the diamond mines were located, Operation Blessing brought some aspirin and a lot of missionaries. The entire enterprise was aborted after only a short time in Zaire when, I submit, Robertson discovered that it was more costly to get the diamonds out of Zaire than he originally thought. Or perhaps, in a Biblical moment, he saw the handwriting on the wall and knew that Mobutu’s days were numbered.

Forgive me for asking this but where is the conspiracy ?
So far all I can see is a delusional person who spews BS that he claims comes from a non existent higher power. Other wise I'm not seeing a conspiracy here.

Actually, 'Pats' latest fearmongering publicity generating forecast of terror attacks in the homeland......just might have been deliberated behind closed doors with the current administrations big-wigs,
as a segway for the President's Redefining the Iraq Mission & the larger War-On-Terrorism speech due pretty soon now.
i put it to you, 'Pat' has always been linked to some degree with whats now the Republican business/militaristic elites...
2008 may be his last Hurrah
