Smells Like Ron Paul Spirit

The time for libertarian conservatism might be here -- like it or not


By Jack Hunter
Published 04/29/10  on Campaign for Liberty
 
According to a new Rasmussen poll, a 2012 presidential race between Republican Congressman Ron Paul and Barack Obama would end in a dead heat, with Obama favored by 42 percent of those polled and Paul by 41 percent. It was the biggest political news this month you probably didn't hear about.


Some dismissed this news as being significant only to the faithful followers of the outspoken, anti-government congressman, while ignoring the much larger revelation that if the election were held today, the "fringe" 2008 Republican primary candidate could feasibly become the next president.

The Drudge Report noted the significance of Paul's showing by running the headline "Shock Poll," but most mainstream cable and network news outlets, talk radio, and print media said little about it. However, plenty of coverage was given to Rasmussen's possible 2012 presidential matchups between Obama and Republicans like Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin, both of whom scored about the same as Paul, with Palin doing slightly worse.

Southern Poverty Law Center: Liars Ca$hing in

By: Devvy

April 19, 2010

"The Southern Poverty Law Center, for the viewers who may not know it, is an organization that specializes in finding offenses that they can raise money around.....Morris Dees, who is the owner of it, if you'd like, I think, is nothing more than a scam artist." C-SPAN Q&A Host: Brian Lamb Interview with Wesley Pruden, “Washington Times” Editor in Chief


The misnamed Southern "Poverty" Law Center is nothing of the sort. That organization is drowning in money.[1] Their "leadership" doesn't give a ticker's damn about the U.S. Constitution. Morris Dees cares only for money and he's been raking it in for decades to support his lavish lifestyle. A lifestyle of sexual perversion (peeping on his naked 16-year old step daughter), sexual deviant (in bed with another man in front of his wife) and peddling "intolerance" better than any snake oil salesman of the 19th Century:

How the Southern Poverty Law Center profits from intolerance

"That was then. Today, the SPLC spends most of its time--and money--on a relentless fund-raising campaign, peddling memberships in the church of tolerance with all the zeal of a circuit rider passing the collection plate. "He's the Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker of the civil rights movement," renowned anti- death-penalty lawyer Millard Farmer says of Dees, his former associate, "though I don't mean to malign Jim and Tammy Faye." The Center earned $44 million last year alone--$27 million from fund-raising and $17 million from stocks and other investments--but spent only $13 million on civil rights program , making it one of the most profitable charities in the country....

SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER PUBLISHES PATRIOT HIT LIST

By Chuck Baldwin

April 21, 2010
NewsWithViews.com

In a report on its web site dated April 2010, entitled "Meet The Patriots," the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) profiled "36 individuals at the heart of the resurgent [patriot] movement." (In reading the list, I counted only 35 "patriots" and 5 "enablers" for a total of 40. I'm not really sure how the SPLC came up with "36." Perhaps their ability to count is commensurate with their ability to appreciate patriotism and liberty.) The SPLC (founded by Morris Dees) sees itself as America's guardian against "right wing militias" and loves to label conservatives and libertarians that it doesn't like as "extremists." The SPLC is one of the most ultra-liberal organizations in the country and should be dismissed as a group of paranoid leftists, not worthy of thought or mention.


The sad truth is, however, our federal government has chosen to exalt the SPLC to the position of being its "go to" source for information regarding "potential domestic terrorists" and similar characterizations. As a result, the information and reports disseminated by SPLC wind up in police reports and bulletins all over the United States. As an example, the SPLC had its fingerprints all over the infamous MIAC report. One could even question whether the SPLC is merely a front organization for Big Brother.

Therefore, it is highly likely that the report negatively profiling 40 American patriots will find its way into Department of Homeland Security (DHS) fusion centers and be distributed to police agencies all across the country. So, should the 40 people who find themselves targeted by SPLC expect some kind of government/police attention? Are we really that close to Nazi-style persecution in America? If the SPLC has its way, the answer seems to be a definite yes.

WAS 911 AN INSIDE JOB? Question going mainstream?

http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=249_1271625202

National Inflation Association on Silver Short Squeeze coming.

 How much over spot is a good price for silver and gold?


A good price for a 1 oz silver coin like an American Eagle or Canadian Maple Leaf is 12% over spot, and a good price for a 1 oz silver bar is 6% over spot.

For gold, a good price for a 1 oz gold coin like an American Eagle or Canadian Maple Leaf is 4% over spot, and a good price for a 1 oz gold bar is 2% over spot.

The larger premium for silver compared to gold indicates a shortage in the physical silver market.

Now that GATA has blown the doors off the LBMA ponzi scheme, and we know there is only 1 oz of silver for every 100 oz represented on paper, why hasn't there been a panic to dump paper and go into physical? What will it take to trigger a short squeeze?

We don't believe there is only 1 oz of physical silver for every 100 oz represented on paper. Most likely, there is 1 to 3 times more paper silver than physical silver. This is still a major problem that will ultimately result in a major silver shortage and short squeeze, once a large number of COMEX holders begin to demand physical delivery of silver. This is a topic that we will be covering extensively in our new documentary coming out next month.

If the silver market is controlled by JP Morgan and others, how does the little guy stand a chance of making money?

The manipulation by JP Morgan through naked short selling is providing an opportunity for normal everyday investors to purchase silver at dirt-cheap prices. Without JP Morgan's naked short selling, it's possible silver would already be well above $30 per ounce right now.

Remember, JP Morgan is not manipulating silver up, they are manipulating it down and the manipulation can't last forever. When investors around the globe call for physical delivery of their silver, there will be a shortage of physical silver and JP Morgan will be forced to cover their naked short position, causing silver prices to explode to the upside.

NIA believes silver will eventually see the biggest short squeeze in the history of all commodities.

Oath Keepers - we are in good company now - SPLC declares Ron Paul and Napolitano "Extremist" Enablers

Oath Keepers - we are in good company now - SPLC declares Ron Paul and Napolitano "Extremist" Enablers. How can the SPLC even think they have any credibility anymore? The George Soros funded group is running scared. It is time for OK to stand up to them again and make it clear....we want peacefull change and restoration of the Constitutional Republic.


SPLC Declares Paul and Napolitano “Extremist” Enablers

Ron Paul and Andrew Napolitano, along with Michele Bachmann and Glenn Beck, are anti-government patriot movement “enablers,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The SPLC insinuates that Paul and Napolitano are “enablers” for domestic terrorism.

“These men and women have helped to put key Patriot themes — the idea that President Obama is a Marxist, that he and other elites in the government are pushing a socialist takeover, that the United States plans secret concentration camps and so on — before millions of Americans, many of whom actually believe these completely false allegations,” declares the SPLC in a recent web posting. “Whether these people tell such tall tales because they believe them or simply because they are willing to shamelessly pander for votes or ratings, is anyone’s guess; but the noxious effect on the body politic is the same.”

More lies. In fact, Ron Paul has deemed Obama a corporatist, not a Marxist. During the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, Dr. Paul said: “The question has been raised about whether or not our president is a socialist. I am sure there are some people here who believe it. But in the technical sense, in the economic definition of a what a socialist is, no, he’s not a socialist…. He’s a corporatist. And unfortunately we have corporatists inside the Republican party and that means you take care of corporations and corporations take over and run the country.”

“Whether he’s advocating pulling out of the United Nations, trashing the Fed, or returning to the gold standard, Paul’s views have scored him plenty of points among the Patriot crowd,” writes the SPLC, and these mainstream Libertarian ideals “stoke fears of an overreaching government on the far right.”

The SPLC fear-mongering machine has long claimed the patriot movement is associated with white supremacists and militias and may engage in violence. In fact, there is plenty of evidence that the SPLC itself has “enabled” the miniscule and completely irrelevant white supremacist movement in order to magnify the ludicrous threat they claim these fringe groups pose.

In 2004, a declassified FBI memo obtained by an Oklahoma newspaper revealed that the SPLC had operatives inside the Identity settlement in Elohim City, Oklahoma. “References to an informant working for the SPLC at Elohim City on the eve of the Oklahoma City bombing raises serious questions as to what the SPLC might know about McVeigh’s activities during the final hours before the fuse was lit in Oklahoma City – but which the SPLC has failed to disclose publicly,” the Daily Gazette reported.

In order to defame Ron Paul and characterize him as a racist fellow traveler, the SPLC dredges up comments published in The Ron Paul Survival Report in 1996. “The quotations in The New Republic article [the neocon publication that attempted to discredit Paul with the accusation] are not mine and do not represent what I believe or have ever believed. I have never uttered such words and denounce such small-minded thoughts,” Paul said. “In fact, I have always agreed with Martin Luther King, Jr. that we should only be concerned with the content of a person’s character, not the color of their skin.”

“Paul claimed in 2001 that ghostwriters had penned the newsletters that bear his name but acknowledged he bore ’some moral responsibility,’” adds the SPLC in a crude attempt to make the controversy stick and portray Paul as a racist.

The SPLC has completely ignored Ron Paul’s denouncement of racism. “Racism is simply an ugly form of collectivism, the mindset that views humans only as members of groups and never as individuals. Racists believe that all individual who share superficial physical characteristics are alike; as collectivists, racists think only in terms of groups,” he has said.

Former New Jersey judge Andrew Napolitano, according to the SPLC, “missed out on rubbing elbows with neo-Confederates, conspiracy theorists and antigovernment Patriot activists” when he failed to show as a keynote speaker in February at the first annual Tenth Amendment Summit in Atlanta. “It seems the TV judge is vying to become a fixture on the far-right lecture circuit” and his very presence of Fox weakens the network’s credibility, according to the SPLC.


For the SPLC, any defense of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights represents far-right kookiness. It is a bellwether of violence, racial hatred, and “antigovernment extremism.”

The SPLC characterizes Napolitano as a conspiracy nut for pointing out Obamacare contains death panels. In fact, the legislation does contain provisions for moving the elderly off the mortal coil, although it does not specifically mention death panels. In late March, the so-called economist Paul Krugman admitted Obamacare contains language providing for what amounts to death panels.

The SPLC slams Sarah Palin on her death panel comments but fails to put the remarks in a larger context. “Government health care will not reduce the cost; it will simply refuse to pay the cost. And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course,” Palin wrote on her Facebook page.

The SPLC is tasked with destroying the patriot movement by portraying it as a fringe phenomenon consisting of dangerous radicals and even psychopathic domestic terrorists who have supposedly teamed up with white supremacist militias and other violent miscreants. Of course, this is nothing more than propaganda, character assassination, slander, and defamation.

Both Ron Paul and Andrew Napolitano are dedicated constitutionalists who demand the federal government return to the principles of the founding document and stop imposing mandates on the states in violation of the Tenth Amendment and the Commerce Clause of the Constitution. They have consistently defended the Bill of Rights against the tyrannical actions of both the Republicans and Democrats.

The SPLC and its ideological twin, the Anti-Defamation League, are engaged in a desperate effort to silence the patriot movement through baseless and slanderous accusations. It will not work. Millions of Americans have arrived at the conclusion that the federal government is indeed an authoritarian leviathan. In response, increasing numbers support the Tea Party movement and other patriot groups.

Sen. Hinkle letter: Wolves as disease carriers

Friday, March 05 2010 @ 03:48 PM MST
Sen. Greg Hinkle submitted the following letter to be read at the March 2, 2010 meeting of the Environmental Quality Council.

Environmental Quality Council
Representative Chas Vincent, Chair
P.O. Box 201704
Helena, Mt. 59620-1704
Re: Wolf as disease carriers

Dear Representative Vincent and members of the Council,

I have reviewed the documents before this Council on the spread of Hydatid Disease via the wolf. In addition to this, I have reviewed information from the Center of Disease Control (CDC) and studies by renowned wildlife biologist Dr. Valerius Geist, Professor Emeritus of Environmental Science at the University of Calgary. You have seen his comments in an email dated February 28, 2010 titled, “EQC and wolves/wolf diseases”.

You have information indicating that almost two-thirds of the wolves in Montana are carriers of the Hydatid Tapeworm and are contaminating our landscape with the eggs of this worm. We have a much milder climate in Montana than in the Far North and it appears this will contribute to a more prevalent spread of the disease. You have read Dr. Geists comments on how easily humans can come in contact with the eggs through pets and wildlife where deer or elk are intermediate hosts contributing to the spread of the disease. The seriousness of this contamination of the landscape can not be understated or denied.

In a fact sheet published by the CDC on Echinococossis it is stated, in part, that a person can become infected “by directly ingesting food items contaminated with stool (or eggs) from foxes, coyotes (wolves). This might include grass, herbs, greens, or berries gathered in fields.” Considering the number of wolves in western Montana, to what extent is the probability of wild berries being contaminated?

I have a copy of a letter written to Ed Bangs, Wolf Specialist with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) dated October 3, 1993 from Will N. Graves (Gray Wolf EIS). In that letter, Mr. Graves pointed out the fact that wolves of the north were Hydatid carriers and should not be introduced into the United States by the USFWS. This dated letter was prior to the introduction program; therefore, was the warning ignored or disregarded by Mr. Bangs?

The Montana Constitution in Article IX, Section 1 guarantees every Montanan the unalienable right to a clean and healthy environment; that the legislature will administer and enforce this duty; and that “the legislature shall provide adequate remedies for the protection of the environmental life support system from degradation and provide adequate remedies to prevent unreasonable depletion and degradation of natural resources.”
The expansion of the wolf population enhanced by foreign wolves is virtually wiping out western Montana’s big game herds. I know that from personal observations and those of other outdoorsmen.

I would point out that in a US Supreme Court case; Printz v. United States, 95-1503; the Court referred to a previous case; New York v. United States, 505 U.S. 144 (1992); and they stated in Printz, “The Federal government”, we held, “may not compel the States to enact or administer a federal regulatory program”, Id., at188. This begs the question, in my mind; did the USFWS have the authority to contaminate our environment with diseased wolves?
Where do we go from here? I believe there are some options.

First would be to request that the Attorney General of Montana fully investigate whether Mr. Bangs and the USFWS knew of the potential of bringing diseased wolves from a foreign country into the State. If this is found to be true, the State should sue USFWS for violating our Constitutional guarantee to a clean and healthful environment.

Second, we should immediately begin to eradicate the source of the problem. Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) should make available an unlimited number of wolf tags and open the season year round. They should educate all hunters on the potential hazard of handling a wolf (or coyote). The funds from the wolf tags should be divided up and all those who harvest a wolf at the end of each calendar year will receive a payment for each wolf harvested. Yes, it is called a bounty. Thirdly, due to deer and elk being intermediate hosts of the disease, FWP should immediately enforce the prohibition on the feeding of ungulates. Illegal feeding concentrates deer and elk creating a hazard for everyone. Other than that, what other sound options are there to hold the spread of this disease in check?

Sincerely,
Senator Greg Hinkle

Greg Hinkle represents Senate District 7, which includes western Missoula County and all of Mineral County.

Dmitry Orlov: Social Collapse Best Practices

Do you really want to go where this guy talks about?
I don't!

Does the Russian model of survival sound appealing to you?
It's coming and Agenda 21 from the UN wants us all stacked up on top of each other.

Tea Party gatherings to be incited to violence by leftist agitators!

This is absolutely hilarious for me. The radical left is so desperate for support that they have to advertise on the internet to find people to infiltrate the Tea Party movement.

http://www.resistnet.com/forum/topics/latest-on-crashtheteapartyorg

They only know their Alinsky radical methods of lies and polarization like they used in the race riots of the 60s.

THEY CAN'T ARGUE THE ISSUES AND WIN, so they try to demonize the messenger in any way they can. And they always accuse the opposition of exactly what they themselves are guilty, because that is all they know.

This is one reason I am focusing on using video production and duplication as our most effective weapon in the information war for truth. Liars hate the light of truth because it makes their lies ineffective when they fall on the deaf ears of the informed mind.

We need to capture the minds and hearts of the people on the street first, then we can put to route the few radical peace destroyers like the ones who advocate the infiltration of the  demonstrations of the Tea Parties.

They want you to turn violent. They want to taunt you into punching them in the nose.

DON'T FALL FOR IT. They want nothing more than to have an excuse to demonize law abiding people, start their war in the streets, and use it as an excuse to declare "Martial Law".

At the next LCW meeting on the 17th Ginny will pass out some free copies of some new videos that you all need to see and spread around. I will be in Billings at the gun show passing out the same videos. These sample copies are masters that you can duplicate  if you have the means, but see below for the best way.

These are critical videos, starting with "Rex Nichols, The People's Sheriff", and then our new "The Problem and the Solution from the Peacemakers", and another video made by  Red Beckman entitled "Know your Rights", on the jury are the tools we will use to make Lincoln County Montana the first truly free county in the country in decades, and when this works people will flock here to be a part of it.

There is no chance for the Alinsky methods of disruption to work when people are watching these in their own homes.

I have sold my classic 1976 Lincoln Mark IV and used some of the money to buy a commercial quality, DVD tower duplication machine that makes 7 copies of a full 97 minute DVD in about 10 minutes.

I have ordered in 1000 blank disks, and sleeves, and will be running that machine every day until our county and state are blanketed with thousands of copies of these three very important videos.

Thanks to Kevin and Dianna of Libby Video for doing the editing on these and giving us one of the most important sets of tools we have ever used in this fight for Freedom and Liberty. Go look at their website at http://www.libbyvideo.com/

The most important thing I can ask you to do right now is to help us set up distribution channels for these DVD movies. To recover costs on a continuous basis I will need to charge only one dollar per video to keep it going. The DVD will come in a white sheath with a label on the outside. They are the type of disk that can only be written to one time, so nobody will be able to erase or overwrite them.

The $1 price is for any quantity, and I will have to charge some shipping if I am to mail them. In quantities of 500 I will pay the shipping myself.

This is probably the most important project I have ever undertaken, only made possible by today's modern electronics technology, and your continued attendance at our meetings as you will see when you watch the videos. Thank you for your dedication, and contact me next week for videos and more info.

Exposing the global financial meltdown - What to Do?

An Argentine opinion on the Global Financial Crisis, describing the whole Global Financial System as one vast Ponzi Scheme. Like a pyramid, it has four sides and is a predictable model. The four sides are: (1) Artificially control the supply of public State-issued Currency, (2) Artificially impose Banking Money as the primary source of funding in the economy, (3) Promote doing everything by Debt and (4) Erect complex channels that allow privatizing profits when the Model is in expansion mode and socialize losses when the model goes into contraction mode.





How will the Global Financial Collapse end? Are we on the way towards global war and world government?

I have been telling everyone for 2 years now to GET OUT OF THE BANKS!

Don't leave any "money" in any bank that there has not been a check written on. Don't leave any wealth that is not being used to pay bills in any kind of bank or credit union because you will lose on it daily.

Get out of the bank and get Silver or some other asset that is real, like food, or guns and ammo, or garden seeds, or fuel, or the dry goods you use every day and you know you will need. Those are the items that really become valuable during a currency crisis.

Tea Party Politics - The Great Spoiler and pain in the posterier.

Perhaps Gary North's Best Article ever!

Hip-Pocket Politics: How To Become a Tack

"If you are in the hip pocket of any political party, prepare to be sat on." ~ Gary North


Political victory in the United States is best defined as follows:

Getting your political agenda enacted into law, enforced by the Executive branch, and upheld by the courts.

A definition of political victory that ignores any of these criteria is part of a shell game: getting people elected for their careers' sake, not your agenda.

To achieve this three-part victory, you must be part of a voting bloc that has the power to impose sanctions: positive and negative.

Establishment politicians understand this. They respect it. They have learned to exploit it. They tell their constituents: "You can win through me if you supply the votes to enable me to win (positive sanction) at the expense of my opponent (negative sanction)." This is the politics of the shell game, what I call the Punch and Judy show.

The correct definition of the power to impose political sanctions is this:

Sufficient votes to deliberately keep your party's candidate from winning in November if he waffles, and sufficient votes to elect his replacement two years later.

There is a corollary:

The willingness to run a post-nomination independent candidate against an incumbent member of your party if he has waffled during his most recent term in office.

Any voting bloc that has this ability will not be in any party's hip pocket.

INSTRUCTION ON THE FIRST SUNDAY AFTER EASTER

Rev. Fr. Leonard Goffine's
The Church's Year 1875

Why is this Sunday called Dominica in Albis or White Sunday?


Because on this day the neophytes laid aside the white dress which, as emblem of their innocence, they received on Holy Saturday, and put on their necks an Agnus Dei, made of white wax, and blessed by the pope, to remind them always of the innocence for which they were given, and of the meekness of the Lamb Jesus. For which reason the Church sings at the Introit:

INTROIT As newborn babes, alleluia: desire the rational milk without guile. Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia. (I Pet II. 2.) Rejoice to God our helper: sing aloud to the God of Jacob. (Ps. LXXX.) Glory, &c.

COLLECT Grant, we beseech Thee, Almighty God, that we, who have completed the paschal solemnities may, through Thy merciful bounty, ever retain them in our life and conversation. Through.

EPISTLE (I John V. 4-100.) Dearly Beloved, Whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world; and this is the victory which overcometh the world, our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he that came by water and blood, Jesus Christ: not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the spirit which testifieth that Christ is the truth. And there are three who give testimony in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that give testi­mony on earth: the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three are one. If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater: for this is the testimony of God, which is greater, because he hath testified of his Son. He that believeth in the Son of God, hath the testimony of God in himself.

INSTRUCTION As in his gospel, so in his epistles, and especially in this, St. John proves the divinity of Christ which had been denied by some heretics. He says that Christ had come to purify all men from sin by water and blood, that is, by His blood shed on the cross for our rec­onciliation, and by the water of baptism to which He has given the power, the divine effect of His blood, and has thus proved Himself the divine Redeemer. This His divine dignity is attested by the Holy Ghost who lived in Christ and worked through Him with His fulness, and when sent by Him after our Lord's Ascension, produced most won­derful effect in the apostles and the faithful. As now on earth three, the Spirit, water, and blood, give testimony of Christ's divinity and agree in it, so also in heaven three, the Father, who calls Him His beloved Son, (Matt, III. 17.) the Word, or the Son Himself, who wrought so many miracles, the Holy Ghost, when He descended upon Him at the baptism in the Jordan, (Luke III. 22.) give testimony of His divinity, and these also agree with one another in their testimony. If Christ is truly God, then we must believe in Him, and this faith must be a living one, that is, it must prove fertile in good works, and this faith conquers the world by teaching us to love God above all, to despise the world with its pleasures, and to overcome it by indif­ference. Let us strive to have such faith, and we shall overcome all temptations and gain the eternal crown.

ASPIRATION O Lord Jesus! strengthen me by a lively faith in Thy divinity, so that I may not suc­cumb in the spiritual combat against the world, the flesh, and the devil, and be eternally lost.

GOSPEL (John XX. 1931.) At that time, When it was late that same day, the first of the week and the doors were shut,where the disciples were gathered together, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came, and stood in the midst, and said to them: Peace be to you. And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples therefore were glad, when, they saw the Lord. He said therefore to them again: Peace be to you. As the Father hath sent me, I also send you. When he had said this, he breathed on them; and he said to them: Receive ye the Holy Ghost; whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them: and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained. Now Thomas, one of the twelve, who is called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said to him: We have seen the Lord. But he said to them: Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe. And after eight days, again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them. Jesus cometh, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said: Peace be to you. Then he said to Thomas: Put in thy finger hither, and see my hands, and bring hither thy hand, and put it into my side; and be not faithless, but believing. Thomas answered and said to him: My Lord and my God. Jesus saith to him: Because thou hast seen me, Thomas, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and have believed.* Many other signs also did Jesus in the sight of his disciples, which are not written in this book. But these are written, that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that, believing, you may have life in his name.

Why does Christ so often wish peace to the apostles?

To show that He only, by His death and resurrection, has made peace between God and man, and that His fol­lowers should be known by their harmony. (John XIII. 35.) There is a threefold peace: peace with God, by avoid­ing sin; peace with ourselves, that is, a good conscience; peace with our neighbor, by the exercise of charity. This threefold peace is necessary for our salvation.

Why did Jesus breathe upon the apostles when giving them the power to forgive sin?

To show that as bodily life was once given to Adam by the breath of God, so should the spiritual life be given henceforth by the apostles and their successors, through the Holy Ghost in the Sacrament of Penance, to the children of Adam who were spiritually dead.

Why did God permit Thomas to doubt the Resurrection of Christ?

That Thomas, as well as we, says St. Gregory, should be strengthened in humble belief in the Resurrection of Christ, and that all doubts should be removed.

Had Thomas true faith when with his own eyes he saw Christ?

Yes, for he saw Christ only in His humanity, and yet testified to His divinity by exclaiming: My Lord and my God!

Is it true, meritorious faith not to be ready to believe before seeing that which is to be believed?

By no means; for faith consists precisely in firmly hold­ing as true that which is not seen. Therefore Christ calls him blessed who has not seen and yet believes.

When is faith true and meritorious?

That is true faith which firmly believes and does all that God has revealed, whether written or unwritten, and when one lives in accordance with that faith; for faith in Jesus simply does not save us, when that which He has commanded is not performed. (Matt VII, 21.; James II. 20.) That faith is meritorious which without doubting and without hesitation willingly submits the understanding to revealed truths which it cannot comprehend, and this for the love of Gods who is eternal truth and cannot deceive.

Whence do we know for certain that God has revealed certain things?

From the Church of Christ which alone preserves the revealed word of God faithfully and uncorrupted, as it is contained in the Bible and in tradition; by the Holy Ghost all truth is given to the Church, and Christ remains with her until the end of the world. (Matt. XXVIII. 20.)

Has the Church of Christ any marks by which it may be known?

Christ's Church has these four marks: it is One, it is Holy, it is Catholic, and it is Apostolic.

How is the, Church one?

The Church is one, because all its members agreein one faith, are all in one communion, and are all under one head. (Matt. XVI, 18.; Eph. IV. 37.)

How is the Church Holy?

The Church is Holy, in her Founder, Jesus Christ, and by teaching a holy doctrine, by inviting all to a holy life, and by the eminent holiness of so many thousands of her children.

How is the Church Catholic?

The Church is Catholic or Universal, because she subsists in all ages, teaches all nations, (Matt. XXVII. 19, 20.) and maintains all truth.

How is the Church Apostolic?

The Church is Apostolic, because she comes down by a perpetual succession from the apostles of Christ, and has her doctrines her orders, and her mission from them.

Which is this true Church?

The Roman Catholic Church, for she alone has these marks. She is One in her head, the Pope of Rome, in her doctrine, and in her Sacraments, which is evident since she excludes all those who do not accept all her dogmas. She is. Holy, for Christ her Founder is holy; and her doctrine and Sacraments lead to holiness, as shown by the multitude of her saints whose sanctity God arms by great miracles. No sect has saints. She is Catholic or Universal, for she has been in existence always from the times of the apostles, as is clearly shown by the fact that from the times of the apostles there have always been some who separated from her and founded sects. The Catholic Church has always existed, and cannot perish or be­come corrupt, since Christ has promised to remain with her to the end of the world; she is also spread over the whole world, is always being announced to all nations, and is fitted for all generations and for all people. She is Apostolic, for she accepts no doctrine which does not come from the apostles, and she can prove that the ministers of the Church, the bishops, have come down in unbroken succession from the apostles.

Can those who remain outside the Catholic Church be, saved?
The Council of Trent (Sess. V. in the Introduction) assigns the Catholic faith as the one without which it is impossible to please God, and the Roman Catechism teaches: (I part. art. 9.) "The Church is also called Catholic or Universal, because all who desire eternal salvation must cling to, and embrace her, like those who entered the ark to escape perishing in the flood." According to this doctrine of the Church, which the holy Fathers affirm, only those idolaters and obstinate heretics are excluded from salvation who knowingly deny the truth, and will not enter the Church. The Catholic Church does not condemn the unbelievers, she prays for them, leaves judgment to the Lord, who alone knows the heart, and knows whether the error is culpable or not, and she calls on all her, members to pray for their enlightenment.

Are we then already saved, if we belong to the true Church?

No, we must also live up to the faith which she teaches make good use of all means of salvation, regard and honor all her regulations and commands, for otherwise the words of Christ will be verified in us: And I say to you that many shall come from the east and the west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven: but the children of the kingdom (the true Church) shall be cast out into exterior darkness. (Matt. VIII. 11.)

Saving Souls--Losing Freedom by Chuck Baldwin

Posted By: RumorMail
Date: Friday, 9-Apr-2010 14:36:

Chuck is considering running as Ron Paul's Running mate in 2012.

Saving Souls–Losing Freedom

One would have to be a blind man to not see that America is fast losing the fundamental principles of liberty upon which our once-great country was established. And, without a doubt, the single biggest reason for this decline is the lack of concern and effort on the part of today’s Christians and pastors to resist it.

All over America, when one approaches our pastors and church leaders with the obvious decay and ruination of constitutional government and Declaration principles taking place in our land today, the response flippantly comes back: “God hasn’t called me to do that; I’m supposed to win souls and that’s it.” (Or words to that effect.) As if the call to Gospel preaching, evangelism, and missionary endeavor negates our responsibility as citizens of a free land.

Of course, this call to “win souls” doesn’t interfere with these preachers’ golf games; it doesn’t interfere with their family vacations; it doesn’t interfere with their active membership in whatever local civic organization they happen to belong to; it doesn’t interfere with their hiring of a lawyer if they are falsely accused or defrauded; it doesn’t interfere with their invitations to celebrity politicians for special church recognition on patriotic holidays; it doesn’t interfere with them going to the polls to vote; it only seems to interfere when they are personally asked to take a stand in the gap for our country’s liberties. Then, all of a sudden, they haven’t been “called,” or “God will take care of it,” or “Jesus is coming soon,” or “Religion and politics don’t mix,” ad infinitum, ad nauseam.

---------------------------------------------
 
The only thing I can think of to add to this is a question.
 
What ever happened to the old dedication exhibited by priests and ministers that were not afraid to self-sacrifice their lives for God in a spirit of penance for the sins of men? Where is there any evidence of these men showing a likeness to Christ in their own lives? Where is there any imitation of Christ's virtues? It seems to me they are all too interested in the world and it's pleasures, and not in winning the souls of men to God. Until we all get that same spirit of penance and self-sacrifice and live by it, this country will never be restored.
God will continue to push mankind OFF THE FENCE. It's up to us which side of that fence we get off on.  Remember that God does not tolerate the lukewarm. He told us he would "begin to vomit them out of his mouth".  This is really a spiritual battle between good and evil, and until we recognize that and act accordingly we are doomed, at least as a country. Remember the bible story of Jonas. Once the king of Ninive understood what Jonas was saying, he caused all his countrymen to do penance for their sins, and God heard their prayers and saved their land.  We need to imitate them.

Are Federal Officials Above the Law?

By Jacob Hornberger
Published 04/05/10 on Campaign for Liberty

A federal judge's ruling in a case challenging the Bush administration's infamous and illegal domestic surveillance case will likely demonstrate, once again, the hypocrisy and deceit of Barack Obama and his merry band of liberal statists.

When Obama was a presidential candidate, he emphasized to American voters that President Bush's warrantless surveillance of Americans was "unconstitutional and illegal."

But once Obama got into office, he silenced his tune, especially in lawsuits that were brought by victims of this criminal action. Like Bush's Justice Department, Obama's Justice Department took the position that people’s lawsuits should be dismissed on grounds of "national security" because, they said, if such cases were allowed to proceed, national-security secrets would be revealed.

Yeah, such secrets as the identities of federal agents who violated federal criminal statutes as well as the identities of the federal higher-ups who ordered them to do so! Can't you just see the entire nation collapsing if information like that were to be disclosed to the public?

How convenient is that? All one has to do to protect federal criminals is simply cite the magic term "national security" and all the criminal dirt is swept under the carpet. Too bad Richard Nixon and the other Watergate conspirators didn’t claim "national security" to keep their criminal wrongdoing secret. Or did they?

In any event, this week a federal judge in one of the surveillance cases declared Bush’s surveillance scheme unlawful, a ruling that places Barack Obama and his Justice Department in an interesting position.

Do they let the ruling stand? Doing so would be consistent with Obama's campaign position, which mirrored that of the judge.

Or do they appeal the ruling, thereby exposing, once again, the rank hypocrisy of the Obama administration?

Of course, all this is occurring in the context of a civil suit. The question with respect to the criminal-justice system is: Why isn't the Justice Department securing federal grand-jury indictments against federal officials who, everyone concedes, violated federal criminal statutes?

After all, the Justice Department is always overeager to enforce such stupid laws as antitrust, insider-trading, and possession and distribution of illicit drugs against the American people. Why do federal officials who committed felonies with an illegal surveillance program get a pass? Are federal officials considered better than ordinary Americans?

For once, the Obama administration should do the right thing. Not only should it not appeal the adverse ruling in the surveillance case, it should also take the side of all other victims of such illegal conduct, arguing that they are entitled to full relief in the courts. If Bush, Cheney, and any their cronies wish to intervene in such suits to defend their illegal scheme, so be it, but this would be a good place for Obama to finally begin breaking away from Bush's massive infringements on civil liberties.

Equally important, Obama's Justice Department should initiate a federal grand jury investigation into the entire illegal surveillance scheme, subpoenaing all the records of those who committed the offenses and all the records showing who was victimized. Grand jury indictments and federal criminal prosecutions should ensue. What better opportunity to show that no one, not even powerful and influential federal officials, is above the law?

WHAT ABOUT THE SECULAR MILITIA? Who are the "Militia"?

By Coach Dave Daubenmire
April 1, 2010
NewsWithViews.com

Call me Mr. Black Helicopter or try and write me off as a “conspiracy theorist” but something is really fishy about the recent arrest of the “Christian Militia” in Michigan. I have learned over the years that there is more to most stories than meets the eyes.

This is just too convenient for me. A few months ago we found out that our Department of Homeland Insecurity had determined that the greatest threat to America weren’t the “Hitler’s in Headscarves” (Thanks Dr. Savage), but Mom and Pop American’s who had the temerity to take their frustrations to the streets. The Tea-Party movement, although clearly spontaneously arising from the heartland, was the first sign of push back from patriotic Americans who were finally realizing that the United States Government was waging war against the freedoms of the United States citizens.

Janet Napolitano released a report informing her “officers” that those who were showing up at the Tea Parties were the folks who were most threatening to America. Perhaps she was referring to what Obama and his Czar’s have clearly deduced...the American people are a threat to the American government.

I watched throughout the Cap and Trade fiasco, followed by the August recess and the unwillingness of our elected officials to meet with those they represent, the loss of Ted Kennedy’s seat in Taxachusettes, the Louisiana Purchase, Cornhusker kickback, legislation by the highest bidder, several marches on Washington, to cries of “racism and violence” against those whom Secretary Napolitano had already warned us were the real terrorists.

CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, and the deadstream media were frothing all over each other interviewing “dignitaries” who had been “threatened” and “called names” by the “right wing” Tea Party crowd. “If someone doesn’t do something this whole thing is going to turn violent,” the talking heads warned us.

Well right on cue, our friends at the FBI were able to break up a “right-wing” group of “Christian Militia” who were planning to “kill the police.” How convenient that the Feds were on the alert, staging the raid, poisoning public opinion, and proving Janet Napolitano to be a prophet.. We all know how violent those Christians are...allowing saliva to fly from their mouths when yelling at legislative larcenists. (Where is Kathleen Sebelius win we need her? Perhaps she could teach us how not to froth at the mouth when we are angry.) Something smells to me….and it ain't halitosis.

I have no idea who this “Christian” Militia is, but are they inferring that the “Christian” Militia is more dangerous than, say, the “Muslim” Militia?” I suppose Major Hasan at Ft. Hood wasn't part of any militia...just a good man bullied into violence. I guess actually killing soldiers is not nearly as bad as “threatening” to kill policeman. Just curious, have any of the members of Major Hasan's militia been arrested?

Let's be clear. Christian's don't kill cops. If this “militia” threatened to do so then they are not Christians, no matter how much DHS wishes they were.

Just what is a “Christian Militia?” According to the dictionary a militia is “a body of citizen soldiers as distinguished from professional soldiers.” What distinguishes a “Christian” militia from an “atheistic” militia, or a “patriot” militia, or better yet, a “state” militia. Would Secretary Napolitano speak the same way about the “Islamic” Militia carousing around the globe? Are we now to assume that this group arrested in Michigan is representative of all “Christians?” Would we get away with calling the gangs trolling our inner cities a “black” militia? (I smell Al Sharpton...er...a rat.) Somebody is being set up.

Call me paranoid, but I don’t like the direction this whole thing is heading. I think we have a lot more to fear from the Secular Militia who are destroying the soul of this nation. There is a civil war going on in this country, for sure. It is a war where Christianity is the enemy and words are the grenades. The Secular Militia are very well organized, fully financed, and embedded in every area of our society. Permit me to point them out to you.

One branch of the secular militia is the Southern Poverty Law Center Militia. The SPLC is the platoon in charge of determining what speech is protected and what speech is hateful.

The American Civil Liberties Union Militia is the legal arm of the Secular Militia. They are charged with tearing down any semblance of Christianity in America by threatening those who publicly practice it.

The National Education Association Militia is the educational branch of the Secular Militia who are following orders to rewrite the history of America, destroying the generational bond that ties families together.

The NAACP Militia is the racist SWAT team charged with digging trenches between Americans into which we all are eventually pushed.

Planned Parenthood Militia is the population police charged with keeping enlistments of certain people groups to a minimum, while lining the pockets of those who love death.

The National Council of Churches Militia is the special ops charged with infiltrating the seminaries of America and destroying the minds of the Christian leadership convincing them that God was the ultimate homophobe.

The Mainstream media Militia is the Tokyo Rose of the Secular Militia, charged with undermining every foundation upon which this nation was built and convincing us that clinging to our God and our Guns was old-fashioned and out of style.

Hollywood and the Screen Actors Guild Militia is a group of “don’t ask don’t tell” soldiers charged with undermining the morals of American children by changing the monogamous relationship into a sexual smorgasboard.

The National Bar Association Militia has assumed the duty of weakening American’s through the terrorism of “civil rights” lawsuits aimed at silencing the freedom of speech.

The Internal Revenue Service Militia is like the paratroopers that parachute in behind enemy lines to abscond with the allies resources and clamping a chain on churches who speak the Truth.

The National Organization For Women Militia are the WAC’s of the Secular Media charged with castration of the American male and the liberation of lion-like lesbians.

The GLESEN Militia has been given the mission of weakening this nation by blurring all gender roles and sexual morality and homosexualizing GI Joe

I could go on.

We are at war for this nation. It is a battle between those who fear the Lord and those who do not; Between those who believe Jesus is Lord and those who do not; Between those who think we work for the government and those who think the government should work for us.
It is clear that secular government has a militia and that they are determined to do all they can to squash the Christians. The war has already been declared. They aren’t fighting it with guns but with lies and intimidation.
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Matt. 10:28

Americans have far more to fear from the Secular Militia than the “Christian” Militia. They are destroying this nation...one grenade at a time.
