"Unbeknownst to most Americans, the US Congress has been gradually changing the
fundamentals of American law. The movement for change started as early as 1975,
when Congress passed a resolution honoring the birthday of a prominent rabbi,
Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, ("the Rebbe") of the Chabad Lubavitch sect
(sometimes this sect is called "ultra-Orthodox"). The movement ratcheted forward
in 1991, when Congress coupled Rabbi Schneerson's happy birthday message with a

Jewish courts will be granted full legal sovereignty over Jewish citizens within

American mercenaries in Fallujah.
"This is a gift from the people of Fallujah to the people of Palestine and the
family of Sheikh Ahmed Yassin who was assassinated by the criminal Zionists,"
said the statement from the Brigades of Martyr Ahmed Yassin. "We advise the U.S.
forces to withdraw from Iraq and we advise the families of the American soldiers
and the contractors not to come to Iraq."
"As Marines prepare to head back into the rebellious Iraqi city of Fallujah, the
stage is set for the most dreaded type of ground combat: urban warfare. While
military officers and civilian officials held out hope that negotiations could
produce a peaceful resolution to the standoff, they stressed that force might
well be necessary."

Fifty-nine years after the big three
prepared a post-Nazi Europe at the Yalta Conference, voices in the US
government are now calling for a similar meeting with Russia. But the
legacy being invoked is a dubious one.
wants new Yalta plan with Russia
United States is proposing a Yalta-style understanding between it and
Russia in an effort to thaw relations that have become increasingly
chilly. On March 25, senior administration officials led by deputy
National Security Council adviser Stephen
Hadley met with senior Russian officials in Washington at the Hay Adams
Hotel to hammer out a new entente between the U.S. and Russia."
interesting that a comparison with the
[photo, below right] would be made, especially considering the
disastrous consequences of that meeting: The slavery of central and
eastern European nations, the forced repatriation of millions back to
Soviet Union, where they faced imprisonment or
and the start of the Cold War. Given such a sad and bitter history, it
chutzpah to invoke the tragic name "Yalta" and attach it to current
dealings with the Russians. That such a monument to evil diplomacy is
mentioned in the context means that the meetings should be watched with
the utmost interest. Tens of millions of people suffered for decades as
a result of the first Yalta, will the second have a similar effect?
Ironically, memory of the Yalta
Conference is also being revived at a time when
those same countries are
about to enter the European Union,
a move that one observer says "finally buries a world order drawn up at
Yalta in 1944 when Soviet leader Joseph Stalin, U.S. President Franklin
D. Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill agreed to
spheres of influence that led to the division of Europe." But is that
world order really dead or merely reconfigured in a less overtly
threatening--but every bit as dangerous--way? Considering that
"ex-Communist" leaders like Russia's Vladimir Putin and Uzbekistan's
Islam Karamov are still in power, it is not unwise to view the alleged
changes with a very healthy dose of skepticism.)
Roosevelt, who, more capably than either Churchill's Foreign Office or
his own Communist-
infiltrated State Department, "handled" gallant Kremlin Joe, now had
little time left for such trifles as losing

background, would be the best guarantors

Sanctions mulled for politicians
politicians who advocate policies contrary to church teaching on
abortion and other issues may risk sanctions that fall short of denial
of Holy Communion, the head of a U.S. bishops task force examining the
problem said Tuesday."
More empty--but revealing--words. McCarrick says he hasn't "gotten to
the stage where I'm comfortable in denying the Eucharist." Please note
what he doesn't say. Nowhere does he state what any priest or
bishop worthy of the name would say, namely that he would be horrified
at the thought of permitting someone to receive who is a public sinner
and who necessarily would be receiving sacrilegiously. No, that
doesn't bother him. And why isn't he comfortable in denying such a
person communion, for if he believes what the Roman Catholic Church
has always taught about the Blessed Sacrament, that it truly the Body,
Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ under the appearance of bread
and wine, then he would also believe that he has a solemn duty as a
cleric to guard the dignity of the Sacrament from those who dare
receive it unworthily. Of course, all of this presupposes that the
communions John Kerry and others of his ilk receive are of the Blessed
Sacrament and not merely bread, a point that is not conceded in some
traditionally-minded circles. Equally laughable was McCarrick's remark
that he might impose some lesser sanction, such as: "no honorary
degrees from Catholic universities, no honors from dioceses, or no
invitations to speak from Catholic institutions." Now, none of these
penalties even remotely satisfy what Catholic moral teaching
calls for concerning the mortal sin of enabling baby killers, but even
if they did there's no reason to believe that they'd be enforced, save
in a diocese here or there. One only needs to recall how John Paul II
said that Swiss Modernist priest and author Hans Küng, a radical "expert" at Vatican II who
is a major figure in the trashing of the Church and who denies
virtually every Catholic teaching, could not be considered "a Catholic
theologian"--a typically toothless pronouncement from Rome that
hasn't prevented Küng from publishing his heretical books or appearing as a featured speaker at schools like Notre Dame and Xavier
Universities. And then there's the Boston Archdiocese that has
publicly stated that it doesn't intend to limit Kerry's communions,
despite what the Vatican suggested. And yet there are still people out
there who think all of this is Catholic? File them under "G" for

Real News 24/7 analysis:
The news that a Vatican official has pronounced on the subject of the
policy concerning communion and pro-abortion politicians really isn't
news at all, its just more typical post-Vatican II "Catholic" confusion.
Prior to the Second Vatican Council, any Catholic
helping to facilitate an abortion would have had more to worry about
than missing out on Holy Communion--he would have been excommunicated.
But after that misbegotten council, everything became murky. Instead of
being counseled to follow Church teaching on moral issues, Catholics are
often being told to follow the open-ended " your conscience." And this
is how many married couples routinely frustrate the primary aim of
matrimony through birth control, how weak individuals are persuaded that
it's "okay" to indulge twisted same-sex Sodomite desires, how women
justify having their unborn children killed by abortion "doctors" and
how "Catholic" politicians like Kerry and Kennedy are permitted to
continue acting as facilitators for the abortion industry.
Although the un-official pronouncement
at the Vatican press conference call technically would require
the submission of these politicians, it is, as so much else in this
Catholic-in-name-only religion, only smoke and mirrors. (And the
best in that church just can't see it: For example, Judie Brown, who has
done much good work as the head of the
, has written a column entitled

those who have eyes, besides the fact that they're not Catholic,
despite claims to the contrary, is that they don't practice it because
no one with authority is making them! And the latest sound and fury from
Rome ultimately is no different.) In the real (read pre-Vatican II)
Catholic Church the punishment for such public sinners would have been
swift and severe and unequivocal: an excommunication that would
have prevented them from frequenting the Sacraments anywhere, anytime,
until such time as they repent and do public penance.
But Vatican II changed all that: In
1973, when Supreme Court Justice William Brennan supported the majority
pro-abortion opinion in Roe v. Wade and was not excommunicated,
it was clear that the Catholic Faith was being betrayed by the very men
sworn to protect it. Now, over thirty years later, this betrayal has
become the norm and the Vatican response is so weak-kneed that it even
suggests that there might be times when it's permitted to give what
passes for communion to the pro-abort politico (The reasoning is wrong,
however, because the true Catholic teaching is that a known public
sinner must always be refused Communion, even when a priest is
"surprised," because the scandal of giving it to someone who is openly
sinning--and thus clearly receiving it sacrilegiously and committing
another grave sin--is immense! To argue otherwise is to show an
ignorance or contempt for Catholic moral teaching.)
No matter, because there are even
other built-in loopholes that will be exploited, because "Reformed" Rome
has been sending out mixed signals, condemning "abuses," often most
forcefully, but in the end never doing anything substantive to put an
end to them. (To invert the famous "Teddy" Roosevelt remark: It talks
harshly and carries a toothpick.) And none of this is lost on the
Democratic "kill kult." Kerry, for example, lectures the Vatican about
"separation of Church and State," how abortion is a woman's "right" and
how he will continue to "follow his conscience" when carrying out his
duties as an elected official. Kennedy also says he won't back down
either, while noting that this wasn't from John Paul II, but only one of
his underlings. Of course, it's easy for them to be bold when the
bishops of New England say they will continue to "minister" to
pro-abortion leaders without any concern over what the Vatican says.
And why not? This "every bishop calls
his own shots" mentality has also been the norm since the Council under
the heading "collegiality." So what, if some of them (a very small
minority, as it turns out) say they'll go along with the Vatican
request (and bear in mind, that's all it is, anymore--a request--except,
of course, when it comes to someone like
Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre
(right) doing something to challenge the false reforms, then they get
hammered with a "command" not to defend Catholic Tradition).
Many (most?) others won't go along with the latest ruling and no
one, least of all Rome, has any interest in stopping them. This has gone
on for decades and isn't about to change now.
Indeed, it is an accepted principle by
the Conciliar Rome, which makes the whining by certain conservative
voices in that church about how terrible it is that these bishops are
"in schism from the Pope" more than a little silly. (Or take the tack of
the author of the "blackmail" link above, as though the fear of being
blackmailed is the motivating factor of the bishops' failure to denounce
the politicians' stand on the issues, while ignoring the fact that
many of them share the same beliefs.)
Until the authority vacuum is filled
by Christ-centered leaders, then nonsensical (but deadly serious)
fiascos like the one that's just unfolded are going to continue with no
end in sight. It's time that those who call themselves Catholic--and
really mean it--wake up to what the enemies of the Church have wrought.
There must be a general housecleaning of those men who hold positions
within the institutional structures of the Catholic Church, but who are
really CINOs (Catholic-In-Name-Only). And this does not involve just a
few men in robes and miters--their number is legion--and it is
something that must start at the top!

make Earth Day a religious holiday
On April 22, millions will dutifully
engage in the now-familiar
rituals and incantations of America’s fastest-growing religion.
In public places, they will gather to listen to sermons...about the sins
of human selfishness, about redemption through self-abasement, about the
duty to exercise stewardship of the earth.
In schools, they will indoctrinate their children in the gospel
according to John...John Muir, that is.
In their homes, they will engage in symbolic acts of self-denial...by
digging through germ-laden garbage for recyclables, by denying
themselves the pleasures of eating meat, and by setting their
thermostats below the sinful level of human comfort.
The cause for this mass religious outpouring is, of course, Earth Day.
In just a few decades, it has become an unofficial holy day, displacing
in the hearts of our countrymen (and in the memories of those who
publish calendars) such reactionary occasions as Jefferson’s birthday.

Columbine is only the bloodiest of many Matrix-related murders in which
social malcontents have acted out their frustrations against the world. While
it can't reasonably be said that the movie or its sequels 'made' anyone kill,
the high number of such occurrences makes it likely that the series somehow
serve (along with other influences, such as the incessant death imagery of
much extreme music [metal and rap] and violent video games) as triggering
mechanisms. Couple this with a lack of a spiritual life and/or a dysfunctional

What Darwin Didn’t

The Problem of Complexity
Complexity is another major problem
for Darwin's theories. In On the Origin of Species, he wrote, "The eye to this
day gives me a cold shudder." Imagine walking past the fanciest Ferrari ever made and
assuming that only evolution was responsible for its existence. There is a
parallel logic. First came the wheel, then the cart, the wagon, the unicycle,
the bicycle, the Model-T Ford, a sedan, a convertible, and then a Ferrari. It should be
obvious to any passerby that this car was man-made, not derived from a series of mutations (accidents)…and
yet many people believe that the human body, a considerably more complex machine,
came about, in part, through a series of lucky genetic accidents. (Accidents,
in my mind, are burns and broken bones.) Nearly all accidents (mutations) in
nature are either silent and useless, extremely challenging,
outright deforming, or simply incompatible with life. They are not capable of
creating complex individuals who can paint beautiful pictures, write wonderful
stories, repair cleft palates, debate political issues, or build racing cars.

for these failed religious men of peace there would be no suicide
