New FBI Files Alleging AIPAC Theft of Government Property and Israeli Espionage Released

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/new-fbi-files-alleging-aipac-theft-of-government-property-and-israeli-espionage-released-87230727.html

WASHINGTON, March 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Declassified files detailing an FBI investigation targeting the American Israel Public Affairs Committee are now available on the Internet. AIPAC was investigated after it acquired and circulated classified government information provided in strict confidence by US industry and worker groups opposed to AIPAC sponsored economic legislation.

The 50 pages now available as portable document files (PDF) include:

FBI reports of Israelis circulating classified documents in the US Congress, "compromising" the authority of the U.S. President. http://irmep.org/ila/economy/06201984.pdf

US Trade Representative concerns that AIPAC was tactically "divulging" classified information supplied by US industries opposed to AIPAC lobbying initiatives. http://irmep.org/ila/economy/06211984.pdf

Reports from the International Trade Commission that AIPAC and Israeli operatives "usurped" US government authority and that an Israeli intelligence service operative was working undercover on
AIPAC's staff: http://irmep.org/ila/economy/08131984r.pdf

FBI interviews of key AIPAC employees involved in handling the classified US government information (full document listing): http://irmep.org/ila/economy/

According to research director Grant F. Smith, the newly released files present startling new insights into AIPAC's activities in the United States. "These files, available on the Internet for the first time, reveal activities that undermined rule of law and governance. They have wrought massive economic harm to American businesses and workers. We urge all concerned Americans to carefully review and ponder the implications of these FBI files and other documents now available from the Israel Lobby Archive."

The Israel Lobby Archive, http://IRmep.org/ila is a unit of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy in Washington. The Archive digitizes declassified documents obtained through Freedom of Information Act filings with law enforcement, economic, diplomatic and intelligence agencies. IRmep is a Washington-based nonprofit that studies U.S. Middle East policy formulation.
Just remember this when they keep telling you that Israel is our greatest friend and ally!

Sermon

Dear Friends,
-
Anything you ask the Father in the name of Jesus, He will give it to you. The reason we have not received is because we have not yet asked. These are words to test how real our prayers are and ultimately how true our faith is.
-
St. Basil says: “Prayer is not made perfect by uttering syllables, but in the purpose of the soul, and in the just actions of a lifetime. Nor are we to believe that God has need of being reminded through our words. We are not to think that we complete our prayer by murmuring a number of syllables, but rather, by the purpose of our soul, and in deeds of virtue extending into every action and moment of our life. Neither are we to think that God needs the reminder of our spoken words; rather are we to believe that He knows our need whether we ask of Him or not. The ear of God has no need of our cry, since He can see even from the movements of our soul what it is that we seek for. . . . For the words of prayer that are simply uttered are of themselves of no avail unless they are sent upwards from a fervent soul.”
-
The prayers of the Pharisee, according to St. Basil, “are the occasion of His [God’s] resentment. It is as if someone should kill the beloved son of another, and then stretch forth to the afflicted father their hands still stained with blood; asking for the right hand of fellowship. Would not the blood of his son, still visible on the hand of his slayer, provoke him rather to just anger? And such are the prayers of the Jews. For when they stretch forth their hands in prayer, they but remind God the Father of their sin against His Son. And at every stretching forth of their hands they but make manifest that they are stained with the blood guilt of their fathers. For they cried out: ‘His blood be upon us, and upon our children’ (Mt. 27, 25)”
-
How many who call themselves Christians are to be classified with the Jews in their prayers? How many by their own personal sins make themselves guilty of the murder of the Son of God, then with a boldness and effrontery appeal to God for their worldly advantages?
-
It is time once again to examine ourselves. It is time to look into the depths of our own souls. What are the purposes of our souls? The words of our lips in prayer mean very little if we speak like those that Jesus condemns: “These people honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.” (Mt. 15, 8) Our prayers must come forth from the depths of our souls. That which lives deep in our souls makes itself manifest in our lives. Whatever is held in our souls, is thought about in our minds, and is then spoken of with our lips and acted upon with our bodies. All our sins begin from within. Christ tells us that it is not that which enters the man that defiles him but it is that which comes forth from his heart.
-
There is too often a disconnect between our words and the desires of our hearts. This discordance within ourselves is the obstacle to having our prayers answered. Or perhaps it would be better said that it is the reason are prayers are answered, God gives us just what we want and expect from the depths of our souls. We ask one thing with our lips and at the same time we do not ask it with our hearts or we ask for something that is contrary to what our lips are asking for. We ask not expecting that our prayers will be heard and so we get our desire and our prayers are not heard. St. Augustine expresses this discordance within us in his confessions when he tells us that at the same time that he prayed that God would give him chastity another part of him prayed that he not give it right away. In this prayer nothing takes place because this prayer ultimately is one that asks that nothing take place.
-
Let us become one in all that we are: in our soul, in our thoughts, in our words and in our actions. Then in this singleness of prayer ask our Heavenly Father in the Name of Jesus and trust completely that we will receive that which we truly desire.
George Bush's daughter has made a commercial supporting homosexual "marriage" - gotta love those "conservatives"



Barbara adds her voice to that of her mother Laura Bush, who stated “When couples are committed to each other and love each other they should have the same sort of rights that everyone has.” Meghan McCain (daughter of John McCain) and Mary Cheney (daughter of Dick Cheney) have also come out on support of gay marriage.

These wonderful "conservative" Republicans have their own special branch of the party for homosexual perverts: http://www.goproud.org/

If you think their is an ounce of difference between Republicans and Democrats you have much to learn and are being played for a fool.

It is National Vegetarian Week - what next?

http://www.chicagonow.com/blogs/a-city-mom/2011/05/its-national-vegetarian-week-whats-a-lapsed-vegetarian-to-do.html

There is nothing new under the sun.

The Church addressed this nonsense almost 2000 years ago:

Creed of the Council of Toledo - AD400
"If anyone says or believes that the flesh of birds or of animals, which has been given for food, not only ought to be abstained from for the chastising of the body, but ought to be abhorred, let him be anathema"

Council of Pelegius - AD 579-590
"If anyone considers the foods of the flesh unclean, which God has given for the use of men; and not for the affliction of his body, but as if he thought it unclean, so abstains from these that he does not taste vegetables cooked with meats, just as Manichaeus and Priscillian have said, let him be anathama"
The Church makes it clear that if you give up meat as a form of Penance (for the chastising of the body) - it is fine - but if a person believes it ought to be abhorred, as in the case of the modern Animal Rights nut cases, they are "anathema"

The same is true of those who do not eat meat because they believe meat to be "unclean" or unhealthy  and for the "affliction of the body" - they too are "anathema

Of course there is the exception of someone who believes that certain meats, such as genetically engineered or pumped full of hormones meats are unhealthy or people with, for example, Kidney problems, who must restrict their protein intake.
Two ex-Girl Scouts challenge organization’s ties to Planned Parenthood

http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/two-ex-girl-scouts-challenge-organizations-ties-to-planned-parenthood

by Kathleen Gilbert

Fri May 20, 2011 16:05 EST

May 20, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Two teen girls who dedicated years to the Girl Scouts USA (GSUSA) have gone public with their decision to leave the popular girls’ organization out of alarm over its ties to Planned Parenthood.

Tess Volanski, 14, and Sydney Volanski, 15, say they decided to leave their Girl Scout Troop after eight years, and they describe their process of disillusionment in their blog Speak Now Girl Scouts

“Leaving Girl Scouts was not a casual, easy, or convenient decision,” say the girls. “Girl Scouts was a huge part of our lives that included a bond with our best friends.”

The girls write on the blog that “the first eye-opening, and quite honestly, jaw-dropping, example” of GSUSA’s acceptance of Planned Parenthood’s (PP) ideology was the organization’s involvement in a United Nations workshop that distributed the PP sex education pamphlet “Happy, Healthy, and Hot.”

The pamphlet instructs young girls not to think of sex as “just about vaginal or anal intercourse.” “There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!” it states.

Although a representative of the Girl Scouts denied that the pamphlet was distributed at the meeting, the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, which broke the story, stood by their report and pointed out that a stack of the pamphlets was found in the conference room where the meeting was eld moments after it ended.

Sydney said in an interview with Concerned Women for America that later the girls discovered that The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts “had a post on their website demanding safe, affordable, and accessible abortions for women as young as I am, 15.”

Although GSUSA states that it has no position on abortion, the girls point to a video in which Girl Scouts CEO Kathy Cloninger says the group partners with Planned Parenthood to bring girls “information-based sex education.”

The girls also quote Abby Johnson, a former local director of a Texas Planned Parenthood, who confirmed, “Girl Scouts of America supports Planned Parenthood.” “Most of PP’s adolescent health material is sponsored by [GSUSA]…it has their logo on it,” Johnson said. Johnson also noted that girls can work toward earning a badge by volunteering for the abortion giant.

On the girls’ blog they also list several other incidents where GSUSA has promoted Planned Parenthood or a pro-abortion, pro-contraception feminism either directly or indirectly.

Robin Marty, a pro-abortion writer for RH Reality Check, accused the girls of simply repeating what their mother, Christy Volanski, has said in Facebook postings and other venues about Girl Scouts and abortion.

But Sydney tells LifeSiteNews.com, “we have passion for the pro-life cause on our own.”

“We are old enough so that we can form our own opinions. Teenagers are not all as apathetic as society seems to think; we can care enough about something to take action,” said the teen in an email. “This is something that we cared about, so we took action and made this website because we wanted to.”

This is why I refuse to buy Girl Scout cookies, would and will not allow any of my daughters to join this organization and speak out against it whenever the opportunity arises - and this has caused many people to become very upset with me. 

Remember - Boy Scouts has NO AFFILIATION with Girl Scouts.  Boy Scouts of America is at this time still a morally sound organization.

U.S. Military Wanted to Provoke War With Cuba

http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=92662&page=1

In the early 1960s, America's top military leaders reportedly drafted plans to kill innocent people and commit acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to create public support for a war against Cuba.

Code named Operation Northwoods, the plans reportedly included the possible assassination of Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship, and even orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities.

The plans were developed as ways to trick the American public and the international community into supporting a war to oust Cuba's then new leader, communist Fidel Castro.

America's top military brass even contemplated causing U.S. military casualties, writing: "We could blow up a U.S. ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba," and, "casualty lists in U.S. newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation."


This plan became a reality with the aid of the Israeli Mossad on September 11, 2001
What have we come too?



This man has no respect for women at all and he is a national celebrity - Ed Schultz calls Laura Ingraham a "slut" on his radio show.  Laura Ingraham is a Zionist neo-con dupe, but she is still a human being and a woman.  She does not deserve this.  What kind of a man is this clown to even say such a thing.

As the drum beats for war against Iran because they are supposedly attempting to attain nuclear weapons, consider the following:

Are there no boundries as to how far Jews will go  in their lies to make the Nazi's look evil and crazy?

The bovine excrement meter exploded on this one!

Nazis tried to train dogs to talk, read and spell to win WW2

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/8532573/Nazis-tried-to-train-dogs-to-talk-read-and-spell-to-win-WW2.html

The Germans viewed canines as being almost as intelligent as humans and attempted to build an army of fearsome 'speaking' dogs, extraordinary new research shows.

Hitler hoped the clever creatures would learn to communicate with their SS masters - and he even had a special dog school set up to teach them to talk.

The incredible findings show Nazi officials recruited so-called educated dogs from all over Germany and trained them to speak and tap out signals using their paws...

...The Germans hoped to use the animals for the war effort, such as getting them to work alongside the SS and guard concentration camps to free up officers...

...Hitler was a well-known dog lover and had two German Shepherds, called Blondi and Bella. He famously killed Blondi moments before committing suicide in his bunker in 1945.

The evil dictator was said to have been keen to use dogs for the war effort and supported the dog school which was called the Tier-Sprechschule ASRA...

...It was reported to have had some success, with dogs tapping out words with their paws.

Some of them were able to imitate the human voice and one, when asked who Adolf Hitler was, is said to have replied 'Mein Fuhrer'.

The forerunner of them all was Rolf, an Airedale terrier who 'spoke' through tapping his paw against a board, each letter of the alphabet being represented by a certain number of taps.

He was said to have speculated about religion, learnt foreign languages, wrote poetry and asked a visiting noblewoman 'could you wag your tail?'

The patriotic German dog even expressed a wish to join the army, because he disliked the French.
Moscow museum puts Lenin's Jewish roots on display
http://www.thestate.com/2011/05/23/1831057/moscow-museum-puts-lenins-jewish.html

MOSCOW — For the first time ever, ordinary Russians can now see documents that appear to confirm long-standing rumors that Vladimir Lenin had Jewish heritage.

In a country long plagued by anti-Semitism, such heritage can be a significant taint, especially for the founder of the Soviet Union who is still revered by many elderly Russians...

...
Many Jews joined the Bolsheviks to fight rampant anti-Semitism in czarist Russia and some were among the leaders of the Communist Party when it took power after the 1917 Revolution. Most prominent among them was Leon Trotsky, whose real name was Bronstein.

But Lenin, who was born Vladimir Ilych Ulyanov in 1870, identified himself only as Russian. He took Lenin as his nom de guerre in 1901 while in Siberian exile near the Lena River....

...Prominent economist Valery Mezhlauk ridicules Trotsky as a Wandering Jew and depicts a finance minister hanging in an awkward position. In a handwritten note under the latter caricature, Stalin recommends that the minister be hanged by his testicles...

Communism was and is a Jewish political system.  All these "conservative" Zionists, such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Charlie Sykes, Mark Belling, etc... - THEY ARE THE COMMUNISTS and instead they are constantly accusing others of being such!
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) says no aid for Joplin without cuts

http://www.examiner.com/political-buzz-in-national/house-majority-leader-eric-cantor-r-va-says-no-aid-for-joplin-without-cuts




The horrific tornado that struck Joplin, Missouri may have also created a political battle in Washington D.C. The death toll from the tornado now stands at 119, making it the single deadliest tornado since modern record-keeping began 60 years ago. The financial toll is also expected to be high, with initial estimates putting damages at around $3 billion. Without significant aid from somewhere Joplin will simply not be able to recover from a tornado that literally ripped the town in half. Today House Majority Leader Eric Cantor signaled that the Congress may not be willing to provide aid without accompanying spending cuts to other programs...


WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU HEARD A CONDITION ATTACHED TO FOREIGN AID TO ISRAEL!

THESE POLITICIANS ARE TRAITORS!

An American city is completely destroyed by a natural disaster and our Congress may not give aid without spending cuts first!

WAKE UP AMERICA!

DNA Evidence Can Be Fabricated, Scientists Show


http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/18/science/18dna.html



Published: August 17, 2009

Scientists in Israel have demonstrated that it is possible to fabricate DNA evidence, undermining the credibility of what has been considered the gold standard of proof in criminal cases.

The scientists fabricated blood and saliva samples containing DNA from a person other than the donor of the blood and saliva. They also showed that if they had access to a DNA profile in a database, they could construct a sample of DNA to match that profile without obtaining any tissue from that person.

“You can just engineer a crime scene,” said Dan Frumkin, lead author of the paper, which has been published online by the journal Forensic Science International: Genetics. “Any biology undergraduate could perform this.”...


My wife and brother had both seen an old episode of Law and Order where this was mentioned - I figured it was probably based on some theory - not fact.

Sunday, May 22, 2011

I received the following letter from Fr. Bernard and was asked to post it on the blog. I did not want to get into this discussion anymore, but am now compelled to do so. If you click on the pages of the letter it should get larger for you to read.
I feel that I must comment on some of this. The first point that Father makes (point 1) is clear. Father then gives several quotes from the Church on how laborers and employers should work together justly and as Christ would dictate.

If you would like further commentary on the position of the Catholic Church regarding labor unions and the communist influence within many of them you should listen to Fr. Coughlin, of whom the Papal Nuncio to the United States said: "As the Holy Father teaches, Fr. Coughlin preaches." This statement about Fr. Coughlin was made after many clergy in the United States who disagreed with him appealed to the Pope to silence him.

Here is an excellent talk that Fr. Couglin gave back in 1939


Fr. Coughlin explains very clearly that it is the right (and even duty) of workers to form and have Unions and at the same time how we must fight the Communists who seek control of Unions. The Communists need to control Unions so that they can destroy them and the middle class in one sweeping motion.

I have stated ad nauseam that I do not support the liberal and evil causes that some Unions support, such as abortion and homosexual marriage, etc.

Because some Unions are led by evil men and support evil things, to me is not an excuse to ban Unions all together - which is exactly what Walker, the governor of Wisconsin, is trying to do, and to claim otherwise, as some have, is disingenuous at best.

By eliminating collective bargaining, you are eliminating the entire purpose and function of a Union or for that matter, even a laborer's Guild. The entire purpose of Unions and laborer Guilds is to bargain on behalf of the employees, hence the term "collective" (meaning all of the employees). definition of collective


I must point out that I have not found the words "collective bargaining" in the Communist Manifesto as Fr. Bernard claims in his letter. I have read an online version of this document and have used a search engine to search the document for these words (Click Here and and here) and nowhere do I find the words "collective bargaining" in the Communist Manifesto.

I called Fr. Bernard to ask him just where in this document I can find these words so that I could read them in their context.

Father Bernard then informed me that he actually had not read these words in the Communist Manifesto himself, but was rather informed by a Parishioner that they were there and that he took this man at his word (which appears to be an error).


But even if the words: "collective bargaining" did appear in the Communist Manifesto - does that mean that it is a communist idea or ideal? The Communist Manifesto calls for an end to child factory labor - does that mean ending child labor is a bad thing or communistic in nature?


If Labor Unions are truly a Communist ideal - why is it that there are/were either no labor Unions or completely ineffective state run labor Unions in Soviet Russia or Red China? Why was it the Labor Unions in Poland fought to overthrow Communism? Why were the Soviets murdering Union Leaders in Communist block nations? labor in China , Labor in the Soviet Union, recent article on how workers in Communist China are treated and Unions end Communism in Poland

I believe that Communists hate Unions because they raise the middle class out of poverty and give them the ability to own property - something Communists hate. If communism is ever to reach its full evil potential in the United States they have to reduce the middle class to poverty. This is why the Communists, as Fr. Coughlin stated so well, have been working to destroy the Unions by taking leadership roles in them!

Remember it was Lenin who said: "The best way to control the opposition is to lead it"

I do not believe that collective bargaining is a euphemistic term - it has a specific legal definition and is the term or phrase used when employees in a Union or Guild appoint people to represent all of the members in bargaining for wages, benefits, working conditions, etc. for their next contract term. Legal Definition of Collective Bargaining

Collective bargaining is what Unions do and to virtually eliminate the ability of workers to collectively bargain with their employers effectively eliminates the entire purpose of Unions AND Guilds.

To claim that one supports workers rights to organize and have a Union, but not to have the ability to collectively bargian would be like saying: I am not against McDonalds and support McDonalds having a right to be a restaurant, but I also support making fast food illegal.

Or in a religious sense, it is like some of these heretic traditionalists who want Bishops with no Jurisdiction. A Union without the ability to collectively bargain is like a Bishop without Jurisdiction - it is without purpose.

I feel and believe with all my heart that a line was crossed in Wisconsin by the attempt to take away the ability of public workers to collectively bargain.

Father mentioned to me on the phone that he would like to see the Catholic Guilds come back, well, if they did, they could not function under this legislation, for they too would not have the right or ability to collectively bargain on behalf of the Guild members!

I agree 100000% that some Unions are controlled by evil people and support very evil things, like abortion, homosexual marriage, etc. - but so does our government. Father seems to imply that it would be sinful to be a member of a union that has supported evil, but does this logic apply to our government?

The United States Government uses public funds to fund abortion via Planned Parenthood, the United States Government supports homosexual marriage, and countless evils - including giving billions and billions of dollars of our taxes to the evil Talmudic Christ-hating State of Israel.

Is it anymore sinful to be a citizen of this nation and pay taxes to this nation than it is to be a member of a union and pay union dues?


Even St. Paul appealed to Rome as a citizen when arrested and Rome was guilty of evil as great or even greater than this nation or even the worst of Unions! source

It seems to me that if one does not support the evils that the organization does and tries to stop it, it would not necessarily be sinful to belong if it is necessary to be employed in that field. Sort of like buying Kosher food or shopping at a store that gives money to United Way which in turn, gives money to Planned Parenthood, etc.

If we were to not give business or money to any business that directly or indirectly supports things contrary to the Catholic Faith - we would not be able to live in this world at all. I guess we need to expose evil and fight it as best we reasonably can and do good whenever and wherever possible.

I believe what Wisconsin should have done is offer legislation that would stop Unions from using member dues to support things that have nothing to do with the purpose of the Union. They could also pass laws limiting their political influence.

But the elimination of their primary purpose, namely to collectively bargain on behalf of their members, goes too far and denies workers the right to be represented, a right which Father says we have in his first point in his letter. This law makes no exeptions - even if the Union is good and morally sound.

The idea of guilt by association can be extended to the Wisconsin governor who brought about this whole mess to begin with.

It was not the leaders of any public sector Unions that had dinner and met with the Communist leaders of China - it was none other than Scott Walker: Walker meets with President of China

The Koch brother(s), who are MAJOR campaign donors and supporters of Scott Walker are crypto Jews who support stem-cell research, homosexuality, and evolution - to the point of having a hall in the Smithsonian called the: David Koch Hall of Human Origins. The promotion of this hall includes an image which depicts the famous painting of God and man touching fingers with God as a Monkey. Sources: click here and click here and click here

What does that say about the motives of the man who accepts money and support from such people?

His political payback is being exposed, such as giving an $81,500.00 a year State Job to a young man who has no college degree and has two drunk driving convictions on his record - what were his qualifications for this job? His father donated large sums of money to Walker! Source: click here

Regarding the "priest" that Father quotes in his letter - "Fr." Robert Sirico - I must point out that Fr. Bernard did not know the history of this heretic novus ordo "priest".


I will inform the readers of this man's history so that they do not make the same error in quoting him.

Robert Sirico was born into a Catholic family, but stopped practicing his faith by age 13. By age 21, he had become an ordained Pentecostal minister, and established the Robert Sirico Foundation to aid in his healing ministry. In 1972, Sirico let it be known that he had been aware of his homosexuality most of his life, and he began performing same-sex wedding ceremonies in Seattle, Washington.[2] By 1975, he was pastor of the Metropolitan Community Church in Santa Monica, California, where he continued to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies.[3] By the early 1980s, Sirico returned to the Catholic Church.[4] Source: click here

This "priest" has appeared on EWTN's "Theology on Tab" in which he sits around drinking beer with college kids talking about Theology. Source: click here and click here

He is the leader of a Zionist Neocon organization called: the Action Institute, which many, many times quotes Rabbis and other Talmudic Jews to support his economic beliefs and world views - here are a few examples:




This "priest" also does not speak the truth when he says/implies that all public sector unions support abortion and gay marriage. There are many different Unions that represent public sector employees in Wisconsin that are effected by this legislation and they do not all support abortion and gay marriage. The much talked about Teacher's Union does, that is why this Union is the only one discussed by the neo-cons.



In conclusion, I stand by my belief that it is wrong to eliminate collective bargaining, because the elimination of this specific legal phrase amounts to the elimination of the right to have a Union or laborers Guild, since collective bargaining is the entire and sole purpose of a Union or laborers Guild.

In order to fulfill Father Bernard's first point:


"It is a just right for the working class to have an organization represent them on issues concerning their welfare, such as wages, working hours, etc., as long as they are just and not morally opposed to the teachings of the Catholic Church."


Workers must be allowed the right to collectively bargain - without this right there is no possibly way that an organization can represent them on issues concerning their welfare.


virtus in media stat
The above comments, which I am compelled by conscience to make, are my personal opinions and are not meant to be taken as any sort of statement on Catholic teaching.

I would have prefered to let this rest.

http://www.therightperspective.org/2011/05/21/israel-our-close-friend-obama-irrational-ron-paul/
 
Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul has condemned US President Barack Obama as “irrational” for calling on “our close friend” Israel to move back to its pre-1967 borders.


“Once again this administration has proven that it does not understand a proper foreign policy for America,” Paul wrote in a statement on Obama’s Thursday speech. “When will our leaders finally do what’s right for America and rethink this irrational approach we’ve followed for far too long?”

“Israel is our close friend,” Paul continued. “While President Obama’s demand that Israel make hard concessions in her border conflicts may very well be in her long-term interest, only Israel can make that determination on her own, without pressure from the United States or coercion by the United Nations...

Any politician or public figure who refuses to acknowledge the truth about the 9/11 attacks is a paid puppet of Israel and one by one they are exposed!

9/11 was a false flag attack perpetrated by Israel against the United States murdering thousands of innocent people and leading to the death of hundreds of thousands more as a result of the illegal and immoral wars that stemmed from this attack.

THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
Her Doctrine and Morals
Fourth Sunday after Easter
22 May 2011


Dear Friends,

Sorrow has filled the hearts of the Apostles because Jesus has just told them that He is to return to His Father in Heaven.

Our lives too are often filled with sorrow when in all truth we should be filled with joy. The apostles should have rejoiced for Jesus, but yet they were filled with sadness for their own perceived loss. Jesus pointed out to them that they were mistaken. They should first of all be happy for Him and for the joy that will be His in Heaven with His Father, rather than so selfish as to only consider their own loss. Next they should find joy in the fact that Jesus was not abandoning them but promised to send the Holy Ghost to them.

So often in our own lives we perceive another’s success or happiness as pain and suffering for ourselves. This selfishness often degenerates into envy for another’s good or sometimes even Jealousy and hatred for those who have received the good. This is a terrible sin and therefore a true reason to be sorrowful.

True love for our fellow man demands that we rejoice for the good that he receives. And if we are faithful in obeying Jesus’ command to love even our enemies then we are to rejoice even in the good that our enemies receive. Very often the good that other’s receive costs us little or nothing personally and so it should be rather easy for us be happy for others, but even if they receive good at our expense we should still rejoice for them. The suffering of Jesus which was caused by our sins did not engender hatred in His heart for us (the cause of His pain), on the contrary He loved us enough to find joy in the graces that we received because of His suffering.

This is not an easy thing to accomplish. It requires a very strong effort to cooperate with the grace of God. Our fallen nature automatically rebels at even the thought of this supernatural charity for those who hate us or persecute us. This is, nonetheless, the goal that Jesus has set before us. It is a goal of perfection. Jesus desires that we be perfect because our Heavenly Father is perfect. Jesus requires of us a profound humility so that we never think ourselves even worthy of the many gifts that we have received, much less worthy of the gifts that others have received. After you have done all things well say that you are unprofitable servants because you have only done that which you ought to have done. He further has taught us to learn of Him because He is meek and humble of heart.

The sadness that we have of other’s good fortune is often enough to rob them of some of the happiness that God planned to give them. In this means our fallen nature finds some perverse satisfaction, but the one that is truly hurt is ourselves, for we have offended God and thus have merited for ourselves greater sorrow in greater pains and suffering. Sometimes though our sorrow is never known to those whom we are envious or jealous of, and in this case it is obviously clear that the only one that is harmed by our sorrow is ourselves.

In our striving for perfection we must teach ourselves to rejoice always. We must find happiness in all that God does or allows. If God chooses to give joy to another because he is weak and needs this support we should rejoice. If God chooses to try us or another with pain or sorrow, it too should be a reason for us to rejoice. God’s intention for us is always the same whether we receive pleasure or pain, joy or sorrow. He always intends our eternal welfare. Therefore all that happens during our pilgrimage here on earth is designed to direct us closer and closer to Him (Our ultimate goal). If we cooperate with Him in all these things we too will one day follow Jesus to be with our Heavenly Father.
Texas politicians knew agency hid the amount of radiation in drinking water



http://www.khou.com/home/-Texas-politicians-knew-agency-hid-the-amount-of-radiation-in-drinking-water-122205439.html

HOUSTON— Newly-released e-mails from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality show the agency’s top commissioners directed staff to continue lowering radiation test results, in defiance of federal EPA rules.

The e-mails and documents, released under order from the Texas Attorney General to KHOU-TV, also show the agency was attempting to help water systems get out of formally violating federal limits for radiation in drinking water. Without a formal violation, the water systems did not have to inform their residents of the increased health risk.

“It’s a conspiracy at the TCEQ of the highest order,” said Tom Smith, of the government watchdog group Public Citizen. “The documents have indicted the management of this commission in a massive cover-up to convince people that our water is safe to drink when it’s not.”...

Spain awakens!



Spain's 21.3% unemployment rate is the highest in the EU - a record 4.9 million are jobless, many of them young people.

Spanish media say the protesters are attacking the country's political establishment with slogans such as "violence is earning 600 euros", "if you don't let us dream we won't let you sleep" and "the guilty ones should pay for the crisis".

Demjanjuk sentenced to 5 years in prison


Posted By Thomas Kues On May 12, 2011

By Thomas Kues

Today, on 12 May 2011, John Demjanjuk was sentenced by a Munich court to 5 years in prison [1] for assisting in the alleged murder of 28,060 Dutch Jews in the Sobibór “extermination” camp in eastern Poland in 1943 (the number of victims in the indictment was previously given as 27,900).

This sentence is a travesty for several reasons, besides the obvious grotesquery of trying a 91-year-old man for a crime allegedly committed 68 years previously.

I will refrain from giving a detailed overview of the case, as this has already been done elsewhere.[2]

To begin with, the only piece of documentary evidence supporting the presence of Demjanjuk at Sobibór is an identification card (from the SS training camp at Trawniki) which authenticity has been questioned by several experts. A month ago a formerly classified 1985 FBI report surfaced which stated that the Trawniki card was “quite likely fabricated” by the Soviet Union.[3] This revelation, however, did not help Demjanjuk in the end. The only existing testimonial evidence consists of a few vague statements of dubious value from former Ukrainian auxiliaries made behind the iron curtain. Not one of the surviving Sobibór inmates has placed Demjanjuk at Sobibór.

The prosecution has been unable tie Demjanjuk personally to any specific crime of violence. Instead, his alleged crime consists of having been present as a low-ranked guard at camp which sole purpose, it is alleged, was the extermination of Jews. Any guard who found this activity objectionable, the prosecution’s argument goes, could have deserted his post. However, the mere presence as a guard at Sobibór, or any of the other “pure extermination camps”, has until now not been considered punishable. In fact, at the Sobibór trial in Hagen in 1966, five out of the eleven accused former German camp personnel were acquitted, despite their admitted presence in the camp. Four of the convicted were given sentences of between 3 and 4 years imprisonment. Needless to say all of these men were of higher rank than Demjanjuk.

There is further the fact that Demjanjuk spent several years in Israeli prison, including time on death row, innocently accused of having been the camp guard “Ivan the Terrible” of Treblinka. Demjanjuk has in fact been hunted, harassed, imprisoned and prosecuted continuously since 1975, when a pro-Soviet calumniator named Emil Hanusiak leveled the first accusations against him.

All of the above objections are dwarfed, however, by the following harsh facts:

1) There exists no documentary or material evidence whatsoever supporting the official claim that Sobibór served as a “pure extermination camp” where hundreds of thousands of Jews were gassed, buried and later burned on open-air pyres. The only documentary evidence mustered by prosecutors and holocaust historians consists of reports and transport lists confirming that large numbers of Jews were sent to the camp. Said documents have nothing to say about the fate of the Jewish deportees subsequent to their arrival in Sobibór. On the other hand a directive issued by Himmler on 5 July 1943, as well as a reply from Oswald Pohl on 15 July 1943 (Nuremberg document NO 482) speaks of “the Sobibor transit camp located in the Lublin district”. The camp was in fact located very near the former German-Soviet demarcation line, a most logical location for camp serving the transfer of Jews to the Occupied eastern territories.

2) In 2001 and 2008 two teams of archeologists, the first headed by the Polish professor Andrzej Kola, the second by the Israelis Isaac Gilead and Yoram Haimi and the Pole Wojciech Mazurek, went over the whole of Lager III, the “death camp proper of Sobibór – corresponding to an area of less than 4 hectares – using probe drillings as well as numerous excavations without finding any trace whatsoever of the camp’s alleged homicidal gas chambers. As it is radically impossible, given the limited area and time available, that these well-equipped teams of specialists would fail to locate any remain or trace, however slight, of the large concrete or brick building described by the self-styled eyewitnesses, only one conclusion is possible: the alleged homicidal gas chambers, never existed. On the other hand, Andrzej Kola discovered in Lager III a huge wooden barrack filled with remains of clothing and toilet articles, as well as a smaller building with a coke storage and remains of an oven – possibly one used for delousing with hot air or steam. According to the official version neither of these structures should have existed.[4] Together with the non-existence of the Sobibór gas chamber building their discovery greatly strengthens the revisionist case, namely that Sobibór (as well as Belzec and Treblinka) served as a transit camp where arriving Jewish deportees were showered and deloused before being sent on further east.

3) According to orthodox historiography not a single Dutch Jew was ever deported further east than Poland. However, on 16 April 1943 – at the very time when Demjanjuk supposedly aided in the extermination of Jews at Sobibór – the Vilna Jew Herman Kruk noted in his diary that “a rumor is circulating that there are about 19,000 Dutch Jews in Vievis”. Vievis is a small town between Vilna and Kovno, which during the years of German occupation was the location of a Jewish labor camp. On the same day Kruk wrote under the heading “More about the Dutch Jews” that he had “succeeded in getting a Jewish sign [evidently a cloth Star of David] and a copy of the order of the Reichskommissar for the Occupied Netherlands about Jewish property.” Two weeks later, on 30 April 1943, Kruk wrote in his diary that “carloads filled with goods from the Dutch Jews are in the Vilna railroad station”. Furniture taken from these trains had been brought to workshops in the Vilna ghetto, where documents written in Dutch were found by the workers.[5] Since there is no reason on earth to believe that Kruk, a prominent member of the Vilna ghetto community, made up this story, it must be taken as an important piece of evidence in support of the revisionist transit camp hypothesis. Large transports of “foreign” Jews to the Vilna area in the spring of 1943 is also mentioned in the diary of the Jewish partisan fighter Aba Gefen (entry for 16 May 1943),[6] as well as by a news notice published in the Polish underground newspaper Biuletyn Informacyjny on 6 May 1943.[7] There are also several testimonies confirming the presence of Dutch Jews in Minsk in 1942-43.[8]

None of the above facts have been considered, or even mentioned in passing, during the trial in Munich. This should of course not surprise, as the blatant disregard of technical evidence has been common to all “extermination camp” trials.

To summarize:

- The murder weapon in the crime which Demjanjuk has now been sentenced for never existed

- There exists no documentary or material evidence supporting the claim that Sobibór functioned as a “pure extermination camp”; preserved documents in fact describe the camp as a “transit camp” (Duchgangslager)

- There is ample reason to believe that the 28,060 alleged victims were in fact sent on to the German-occupied territories of the Soviet Union and the Baltic states.

Needless to say such facts does not matter one bit to the enlightened judges and prosecutors of the “freest state in German history”. The defense, undoubtedly aware that any mention of said facts would run afoul of Germany’s laws against “Holocaust denial”, settled on the usual strategy: accepting the officially sanctioned version of events while insisting on the personal innocence of the defendant. In the end, this did not help, and it probable, even likely, that the outcome of trial was more or less settled from the start. At the time of Demjanjuk’s extradition to Germany in May 2009 German holocaust historian Norbert Frei stated: “The Germans owe it to the victims and the survivors, but also to themselves, to prosecute Demjanjuk.”[9] Demjanjuk had to be sentenced, because the Germans “owed this” to themselves. Or to put it more clearly: The trial was necessary to keep “alive” in the minds of the German people (and the western world in general) the phantom of the “Holocaust”.

Demjanjuk’s defense attorney, Ulrich Busch, has stated that an appeal will be filed against the verdict. As for now Demjanjuk has been released from prison, as the sentence is not yet legally binding (rechtskräftig). If after the appeal it is determined that he should serve time in jail (5 years minus the nearly 2 years already spent in custody) it will further be decided whether the 91-year-old is physically fit for imprisonment.[10]

Wisconsin Concealed Carry Sell Out Exposed!

http://wisconsingunowners.org/2011/05/10/wisconsin-concealed-carry-sell-out-exposed/

May 10, 2011

URGENT ALERT:

The situation with Wisconsin’s concealed carry legislation is CRITICAL. Things are unfolding quickly. There is little time to act. There is much confusion about the two bill proposals on the table.

But this much we know: Most of the republicans in our state legislature are rabid anti-gun extremists who hate Constitutional Concealed Carry.

And the bottom line is this: The republican establishment is selling you out.

There are many underlying reasons why neoconservatives don’t like liberty – and liberty is really what this whole debate between state-issued permit-to-carry and Constitutional Carry is all about.


I’m assuming that if you’re getting this note, you already understand that a permit, by definition, means someone is “permitting” you to do something – it impliespermission and, therefore, confers a privilege.

This does not square with the right to bear arms, which is inalienable and not a privilege.

Our veterans didn’t fight and die in foreign wars to preserve privileges. They fought and died for liberty and for rights. They fought for freedom.

What’s more, every immigrant landing on Ellis Island applying for U.S. Citizenship is required to understand these basic concepts. But state republicans just don’t get it.

The founders understood that there needed to be checks and balances in place to protect We the People from the government, which tends to always expand and “eat out the substance of the people” and our liberties.

So before you go jumping on the permit-to-carry bandwagon, consider that when you give government the ability to regulate the checks and balances, it destroys the checks and balances.

And while we’re tempted to give state republicans the benefit of the doubt and assume they are just too stupid to understand these basic distinctions, we know better: State republicans are actively fighting against their own colleagues who are trying to introduce Constitutional Carry!

According to our inside sources, Assembly Speaker Rep. Jeff Fitzgerald (R-39) has been bullying freshmen republicans into a carry-by-permit bill – what we now know is the NRA’s much-hailed Personal Protection Act – even though newly-elected tea-party candidates vowed to introduce a Constitutional Carry bill.

Whose side is the NRA on?

In a time when gun owners need to be fighting together as one unified voice for concealed carry, instead republicans with the collaboration of the NRA go public with two bills that are philosophically and diametrically opposed to one another.

Where’s the unity?

It appears a backroom deal has been struck whereby both bills would be allowed to be introduced in the state senate – but the real bill that leadership is pushing (ie. not actively fighting against) is the permit bill.

We believe this gives the NRA and Rep. Jeff Mursau (R-36) in particular the opportunity to give lip service to Constitutional Carry, while actively working to ram a permit bill into law. It allows them to speak out of both sides of their mouth.

Yes, you should be deeply offended by this thinly-veiled sleight of hand.

But you should also watch their actions, and you’ll note that the Constitutional Carry bill was not given a hearing in the assembly. That’s because Fitzgerald and the republican establishment is using every procedural trick in the book to block Constitutional Carry … they hate constitutional liberty so much they won’t even let it get off the ground.

With friends like these – doing all the legwork for anti-gunners to oppose a true pro-gun bill – who needs enemies?

And for those who assume the permit bill is a “step in the right direction,” keep in mind that it includes fees (a gun tax) and a registration list of licensees maintained as a criminal database by the Department of Justice.

Do you support new taxes, bigger government and gun registration?

According to a story in the Wausau News Herald (Galloway introduces concealed gun bill, May 4, 2011), “Wausau Police Chief Jeff Hardel said he doesn’t support concealed carry.”

He goes on to say how much he dislikes Constitutional rights: “”Overall, I think you’ll find law enforcement doesn’t support (concealed carry).”

And now the punchline: “But if it’s going to pass,” says the chief, “then I just think we need to have a proper system in place.”

“…A proper system in place.”

Translation: An anti-gun police chief who doesn’t respect your right to self-defense, or the Constitution, will support a “proper system.”

By “proper system” is meant taking a blow torch to the Second Amendment by turning a right into a privilege by permit, guilty-until-proven-innocent Brady-style background checks, fees (new gun tax), and gun owner registration – providing DOJ (under which works the anti-gun BATFE) a list of everyone who carries.

Does this sound like a step in the right direction?

Ask yourself this question: Which bill is supported by anti-gun police chiefs … and why?

Are you going to let republicans get away with their broken promise, where they alleged unified support forVermont-style Carry (Now known more commonly as Constitutional Carry) if someday they, republicans, controlled the assembly, senate and governor’s seat in Wisconsin

Hasn’t that day arrived? Where’s the promised support?

Make no mistake: Constitutional Carry will be THE litmus test in the next election for republican primaries.

Any republican actively opposing Constitutional Carry right now, or failing to support it, will lose the support of gun owners.

Gun owners who support Constitutional Carry are the new swing vote. And we’re not happy.

With public hearings scheduled for Thursday, and concealed carry now on the fast-track, right now we need to focus on action.

As mentioned, there are two hearings happening on May 12: The “NRA Hearing” and the “Gun Owners Hearing.”

The “NRA Hearing” is the Madison Assembly Hearing, at 10:30 am, for the permit bill. This is legislation the NRA openly supports, and if passed will sink Constitutional Carry faster than the Japanese torpedoes that smashed into American battleships in Pearl Harbor.

According to our intel, republican leadership believes the legislation heard at this hearing, LRB-2027/1, the license-to-carry-gun-owner-registration-list-bill is the real bill they intend to pass. They want gun owners at this hearing to lap up what crumbs they’ve thrown us. They want us there so we can hear their rationalization for preemptive surrender. But we have other plans.

The “Gun Owners Hearing” is happening in Wausau, on the same day, at 12:00 noon. This is a Senate Committee hearing to hear LRB-2007/1 – Constitutional Carry, introduced by State Senator Pam Galloway (R-29).

In addition to the Constitutional Carry bill, the senate version of the permit legislation, LRB-2033/1, will be heard here as well. We urge gun owners to support LRB-2007/1, Constitutional Carry.

So here is the new plan: we need everyone who is able to come to the Madison hearing on Thursday at 10:30am rather than the Wausau meeting. We need you there standing up for Constitutional Concealed Carry

If we can overwhelm their permit carry hearing with support for Constitutional Carry we will force leadership to put Constitutional Carry up for a vote instead of permit carry.
