    Rev. Randy Steele, a 32-year-old pastor from Mount Vernon, Illinois, was quizzed by FBI agents after the Bureau received a complaint from an anonymous informant. Rev. Randy Steele, senior pastor at Southwest Christian Church in Mount Vernon, Illinois, thought that "somebody in my church might have done something" when he received a phone call from the FBI last November. It wasn’t until part way through an interview with two FBI agents later that day that the 32-year-old pastor realized that he was the subject of the inquiry. The agents quizzed the pastor about a sermon he had preached on Memorial...

    We Lose If LOST Winsby William F.

The United Nations Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) is just such a creature.

    Amid raptures of self-congratulation, the Bush administration & its supporters take credit for the birth of democracy in Iraq--ignorant of the fact that democracy & liberty aren't synonyms. When congressional Republicans attending President Bush's State of the Union Address dipped their fingers in blue ink--mimicking Iraqis who voted in that nation's elections a few days earlier--they weren't merely engaging in an act of self-dramatization. They were also testifying of their utter ignorance regarding republican liberty.

    Abortion “rights” proponents are finding that their position is becoming even more indefensible because of the increased viability of small-sized infants. Proponents of abortion have always maintained that abortion — that is, killing babies — is not murder, but a “termination of fetal tissue.” And the legal system has upheld that viewpoint ever since the Roe v. Wade decision, even to the point of accepting third-trimester abortions and partial-birth abortions. However, recent events have called negative attention to the “logic” of the pro-abortion stance. On September 19, 2004, twins were born to Mahajabeen Shaik — not an unusual occurrence of...

By most accounts Alexander did like men, women, and eunuchs — his best friend Hephaistion was his longtime lover.” Item: A New York Times article for November 20 entitled, “Breaking Ground With a Gay Movie Hero,” says of Stone’s film: “Historians of antiquity...

    Kerry did serve as an officer in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War. And he did win a Silver Star and three Purple Hearts. So far, so good. But when he returned home, he became a war protester. In America, of course, everybody is free to agree or disagree with a government policy. But Kerry did not just disagree; he became a leader of groups that championed our nation’s foes while our forces were still fighting and dying. In 1971, the Communist Daily World delightedly published photos of him speaking to demonstrators as a leader of Vietnam Veterans Against...

Gorelick appeared before the Council on Foreign Relations’ Policy Impact Panel on Terrorism to outline the Clinton Administration’s record on combating terrorism. According to Ms. Gorelick, the Clinton terrorism policy involves these three core elements: • To do “everything we can to deter and to prevent terrorist acts.” • To “respond quickly, decisively, and with a full range of law enforcement and other options that are available.” • To “work with our friends around the world to interdict terrorists and to assure that they do not go unpunished.” As with President ...

    Christians Flee "Liberated" Iraq Understandably concerned over the fact that the new Iraqi constitution designates Islam the "official religion of the state," Iraqi Christians are "voting with their feet" by preparing to leave their native country, reported Insight on May 28. Tragically, this validates a prediction made in these pages more than a year ago (see "What Did We Win?" in our May 19, 2003 issue). "Most of the Christians in Iraq are Assyrians — people who claim to be the original inhabitants of Iraq," reported Insight.

The tattered shreds of what remains of Christian civilization are under assault as never before, yet who is willing to stand in the breach against the attacking barbarian hordes?

    What’s Your "TQ"? That’s "terrorism quotient" — also known as "High Terrorism Factor," or HTF. The AP reported on May 20 that Seisint, a federal contractor employed by the Bush administration to develop the Multistate Anti-Terrorism Information Exchange (MATRIX), "turned over to U.S. and Florida authorities the names of 120,000 people who showed a statistical likelihood of being terrorists — sparking some investigations and arrests." After 9-11, Seisint used a scoring algorithm to trawl through personal data collected on millions of people to identify those displaying HTF. The system was based on "reverse engineering an unnamed ‘Terrorist Handbook’ that reveals...

    To inflate their credentials as an organization relying upon carefully documented and factual material, the John Birch Society (JBS) often cites as "experts", persons who have had some connection to the FBI --- either as former Special Agents or as Security Informants. However, the FBI had very negative evaluations about the post-FBI endeavors of former informants or Agents who subsequently attached themselves to the JBS as members, endorsers, speakers, or authors. Examples include: Dan Smoot, W. Cleon Skousen, Julia Brown, David Gumaer, Gerald W. Kirk, Matt Cvetic, and Karl Prussion. Often these folks were mentally unstable. A person seduced by...

    Despite the political backlash from several states, the federal government continues to push its nationalized education agenda. Federal aid to education is comparable to carrying water in a leaky bucket from your own reservoir to a big central well. What is left of the water is poured into the well, and then those in charge apportion you some water in that same leaky bucket and you bring it home. Besides losing what water is spilled on the two-way trip, you eventually find yourself being told what to do with the water that remains — although it was your own water...

    Why has a reverent movie about Jesus Christ become one of the most controversial films in history? But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. — Isaiah 53:5 Mel Gibson’s movie The Passion of the Christ begins with a black screen and the above-quoted passage of Holy Scripture from the prophet Isaiah. It ends with a scene of the resurrected Jesus Christ stepping from the tomb. In the two hours of film that run between those two bookends, writer-director-producer Mel...

Myth #1: The United States was defeated militarily in Southeast Asia. Myth #2: The impact of the Pentagon's Rules of Engagement on our military capabilities in Vietnam has been greatly exaggerated.

    President Bush’s proposed immigration reform package is a shocking betrayal of our nation’s sovereignty, culture and economy. It must not be allowed to pass.   Bill Clinton uttered countless deceptive words during his eight-year occupancy of the White House, but perhaps none captured the essence of his slippery dishonesty better than these: “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.” In defending his proposed amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, George W. Bush is striving to set a new record for brazen presidential dishonesty. “This plan is not amnesty, placing undocumented workers on the automatic path...

    Wolves are being reintroduced to wildlands to drive people out, intentionally putting human life at risk for the sake of creating a UN biodiversity preserve. Across the nation, particularly in western states, ranchers are feeling the bite of the so-called "wolf recovery" program, which began with reintroducing wolves to Yellowstone National Park in 1995. Stemming from the Endangered Species Act (ESA), this program was followed three years later with the return of Mexican gray wolves in the Southwest, and similar initiatives are underway in the Midwest and Northeast. As the resurgent wolf packs thrive, they are inflicting serious economic damage...
