    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...

    UN-created Pederast Undergroundby William Norman GriggFebruary 20, 2005   Didier Bourguet is on trial in his native France for charges of sexual abuse and rape in Congo while working as a UN transport worker. His defense attorney, Claude de Boosere-Lepidi, told the court "that there was a network of UN Personnel who had sex with underage girls and that Bourguet had engaged in similar activity in a previous UN posting in the Central African Republic," reported the February 12 Los Angeles Times. “Bourguet’s case is the only one that has been prosecuted among 150 allegations against about 50 soldiers and...

    We Lose If LOST Winsby William F. JasperThe Law of the Sea Treaty is not just a bad idea; it is a very dangerous legal document that heralds a major step into world government and grants vast powers to the UN.Some bad ideas just keep coming back again and again, like a vampire that hasn’t been properly disposed of with the wooden stake to the heart. The United Nations Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) is just such a creature. Pronounced dead several times over the past couple of decades, it was largely forgotten — except by its internationalist sponsors....

    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...

TelzrowThe unjust vilification of Pope Pius XII and the Catholic Church for supposed collaboration with the Nazis during World War II is only part of a broader campaign to condemn all Christians.In an editorial published on March 18, 1998, the New York Times took up the subject of Pope Pius XII and the activities of the Catholic Church regarding the Nazis during World War II. "A full exploration of Pope Pius’s conduct is needed...," stated the Times’ editorial writer. "It now falls to John Paul and his successors to take the...

    Item: Entertainment Weekly’s lavish cover story for November 19 claims that Oliver Stone’s new movie, Alexander, about Alexander the Great, is “an honest, fairly explicit treatment of Alexander’s famous bisexuality.” “It wasn’t like Stone had taken historical liberties,” the article continues. “His rendering of Alexander’s life is … more or less in the mainstream of scholarly research. 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...

    On October 11th, U.S. Deputy Attorney General Jamie S. 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. "Because they are Christians and seen as allies of the West, the Assyrians...

    The battle for the soul of America has reached a pivotal point. 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? Certainly not those who now pose as our political, moral, and spiritual leaders. The ongoing public and shameful lynching of Senator Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) is painful enough evidence of that.For daring to speak against the militant homosexual lobby’s perverse agenda and growing power, Senator Santorum has been subjected to a relentless barrage of hate and vitriol. It was to...

    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...

    Working through its consulates in the United States, the Mexican government is waging a war of subversion against our nation — with the silent complicity of Washington. “It breaks my heart to see what’s happening here,” lamented 47-year-old Utah native Alex Segura to THE NEW AMERICAN. For more than 10 years, Segura resided in California, watching in disbelief as large portions of that state were effectively reclaimed by Mexico through rampant illegal immigration. “Now I’m seeing the same thing happening here,” he observes. “We see very militant people, allied with the Mexican government, and supported by political leaders in this...

    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...

    Seven Myths About the Vietnam War by William F. Jasper Three decades after pulling out of Southeast Asia, America remains hostage to a relentless barrage of distortion, myths, and outright lies about the Vietnam War. 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. Myth #3: The North Vietnamese (Communists) won, ultimately, because they occupied the moral high ground. They were fighting for their homeland against a foreign invader. Myth #4: The Vietnamese who fought against us were...

    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...
