The 'Holocaust' and the Vatican Archives

CIA corrects itself on WMD
(But they were still justified in sending our sons and daughters to die in Iraq for no apparent reason? So say G. W. Bush and Condi Rice.)

Gorbachev calls Iraqi elections 'fake'
(Well, if anyone knows about faked elections, it's Gorby, who in 1985 was the 'peoples' choice to rule the Soviet Union. Of course there was no opposition party candidates, a minor point to be sure.)

Planned Parenthood Boss Slams Kerry

Limbaugh to oppose Bush over illegal immigration?
(Will el Rushbo really follow through on this issue and mobilize his legions of Dittoheads to tackle the President's ill-disguised amnesty plan? That remains to be seen, but given Limbaugh's reputation as a vigorous across-the-board defender of the Administration, we don't see this going very far. Rather, something he'll huff and puff over for a few weeks, but then be passed over  for the next hot button issue he can ride for a while.)

Jerusalem land seizures 'illegal'
(Like Ariel Sharon and the IDF really care.)


Vatican accused over wartime archives
(The latest flap is just part of an ongoing vilification campaign by some Jews to denigrate--- and, ultimately, despoil --- Rome.)

Inside the Vatican: the secret archives

John Paul II hospitalized, Vatican: 'situation calm'

Israel arrests US peace activist
(An American is arrested by a foreign nation's secret police and there's no U.S. government intervention or  media scrutiny. How can this be? It's Israel's  Shin Bet that makes the arrest, so exceptions are made. Here's an article by the detained man, Patrick O'Connor, about  his interview with the Shin Bet  --courtesy of an Israeli peace site.) 

Bush wants more money for IRS
(Rather than being given a raise, the IRS's corrupt and abusive 'Plunder Patrol' should be put out of business.)

Support your local Mom-and-Pop
(Wal-Mart fans the flames for sodomite unions.)


Stolen churches, stolen Jews
("ADL Director Abraham Foxman, who was hidden and illicitly baptized by a Polish nanny, has noted that as a result of the Church's policy 'There may have been tens of thousands of rescued and baptized Jewish children who to this day are not aware of their true origins.'" Nor should they ever learn them, if that means the opportunity of them denying their Savior. And the teaching of the Catholic Church is quite clear concerning the baptism of Jewish children in such circumstances: "it is licit  to impart such baptism if the children were in proximate danger of death; or if they had been removed from the parental care and there was no likelihood of their returning to it." From the Catholic Encyclopedia  article on Baptism See Section XIV. Recipient of Baptism, Paragraph 6. Baptism of the Children of Jewish and Infidel Parents.)

John Paul II faces another week in hospital
(Doctors warn that his Parkinson's presents added risk and that the hospital stay could be dangerous.)

Excerpt from the State of the Union Address: 'America's immigration system is also outdated.... It is time for an immigration policy that permits temporary guest workers to fill jobs Americans will not take....' Since when has the word 'guest' been defined as someone who enters the home of another without that person's permission?  Don't we say, rather, that such a person is guilty of criminal trespass?

Ballistic fingerprinting & other gun control scams




Gun control backdoored as a breakthrough in forensic science? Ballyhooed as a crime-fighting aid for law enforcement, ballistic fingerprinting is increasingly shown as flawed. Author John Lott writes: "The recording of a child's fingerprints or DNA still allows for identification much later in life; the same is not true of the bullet markings. A ballistic fingerprint is less like a human fingerprint than it is like the tread on a car tire."

Ballistic fingerprinting was all the rage just a couple of years ago. Maryland and New York were leading the way where a computer database would record the markings made on the bullets from all new guns. The days of criminals using guns were numbered.

Yet, a recent report by the Maryland State Police's forensic-sciences division shows that the systems in both states have been expensive failures. New York is spending $4 million per year. Maryland has spent a total of $2.6 million, about $60 per gun sold. But in the over four years that the systems have been in effect neither has solved a single crime. To put it bluntly, the program "does not aid in the mission statement of the Department of State Police."
