- WHY FATIMA
- FATIMA CENTER
- PRAYER & DEVOTION
by Father Paul Leonard B.Ph., S.T.B., M. Div., S.T.L. (Cand.)
You will discover that terrible evils are now upon us in America as you read this exclusive up to the minute report by Father Paul Leonard.
It was to prevent these (and worse) evils from befalling us that Our Lady came to Fatima with Her Message of peace for all men.
In order to prevent these and many other evils She came in Her most solemn appearance in the Majestic Presence of the Most Holy Trinity to ask for the consecration of Russia.
Our Lady of Fatima said it is "by this means" that Russia will be converted and the world will have peace. Yet we must also recall, as Father Paul Leonard indicates here below and as Sister Lucy has said explicitly, that the grace of the consecration of Russia will not be given until enough people are heeding Our Lady of Fatima’s other requests in their own personal lives.
Read this eye-opening report and act now lest you and your family be the next victims of 1993 tyranny in the U.S.A.
I believe it was twelve years ago when Pope John Paul II visited Germany, and while in Fulda, someone asked the Holy Father about the "Third Secret" of Fatima. While most who read the account probably remember most vividly the reference to "entire continents" being inundated and "millions" perishing from minute to minute, many perhaps may have forgotten that the Pope also summed up the whole Fatima message in just eight short words: "If you do not repent you will perish."
More fundamental than the promised conversion of Russia or the annihilation of nations; war, hunger, the persecution of the Church or the spread of Russia’s errors throughout the world — the basic problem that Our Lady of Fatima came to address is the present moral state of unrepentant sinful humanity. God is offended by the sins of men, and if they do not repent and turn back to God, then God is going to chastise the whole world. It was in this context that the Pope revealed a portion of the "Third Secret" that clearly refers to the annihilation of nations.
We can discuss and debate endlessly whether or not the Pope has properly consecrated Russia. While it remains important to remind the pastors of the Church that the conversion of Russia and world peace will not become a reality until the Consecration is properly done, it is still more urgent to bring about repentance and conversion in our de-christianized "free world".
Our Lady of Fatima has warned us that if sinful humanity does not repent and turn back to God, then Russia will be the instrument of chastisement chosen by God to punish the world. It is sheer folly and wishful thinking for anyone to believe that the conversion of Russia has taken place or is taking place now while the rest of the world wallows in injustice, moral corruption and apostasy from God. Is it conceivable that God would convert Russia just now and reward the world with peace?
Sinful humanity has turned God’s good earth into a cesspool of iniquity, and therefore God has decreed to punish the world for its crimes. Russia is the divinely chosen instrument of chastisement, and it will not be converted until either our sinful world repents, and Russia is converted, or the world is chastised for its crimes, and then Russia is converted.
Conversion is a gift of God’s grace — it doesnt just "happen". We must not imagine that God’s grace comes cheaply. God’s grace is not cheap — God’s grace is a free gift, but it is something sublime, it is no cheap thing that He would just give to us unless we were first to fulfill the conditions that God demands that we fulfill in order to receive the grace He offers us.
God has threatened a terrible chastisement for the world if sinful humanity does not repent He therefore cannot bring about the conversion of Russia and world peace if the world does not repent. God would not be faithful to His own word if He were to do that. There must be repentance or chastisement one or the other. The world must be cleansed either by penance and reparation, or by wrath and expiation: Humanity must embrace Gods mercy or face His judgment this is the most basic teaching in the Message of Fatima.
Basic USA Civil Liberties Under Attack
Sinful humanity has not repented — we can clearly see the handwriting on the wall, and it says the same thing it said in the days of Daniel the prophet: "You have been weighed in the balance and have been found wanting." Our Lady warned that "Russia will spread its errors throughout the world". While most Americans have been observing the "changes in Russia", absorbed in fascination by the political changes there and at the same time preoccupied by the worsening economic situation at home, they have largely remained oblivious to the drastic deterioration of constitutional and basic civil liberties in America.
The errors of Russia are here in America — totalitarian tyranny is on the rise: the Federal Government like a Leviathan is now rapidly suffocating our precious national birthright — our freedom. How many of us have read in Solzhenitsyn’s GULAG Archipelago about the dreadful knock on the door and the KGB thugs who arrest innocent citizens who, after a charade of due process of Law, get sent off to the labor camps and prisons of the GULAG?
Tyranny Is Happening Here
Most Americans are so blind that they say "It can’t happen here", but it is already happening here. Donald McAlvany writes: "There is a black cloud rolling across America. The great majority of Americans cannot even see it as they live on in a contented, complacent comfort zone that sees no evil, hears no evil, and feels no evil. There are powerful forces at work in America today which have a well strategized design to move America into a socialist police state and a globalist New World Order."1
The Government, through the FDIC and the IRS intends to track all deposits and all financial transactions. They intend to establish a cashless system that eliminates all financial privacy and all unmonitored transactions. I recently read a published account which related how a conservative publisher of a newsletter recently warned his readers about the sinister IRS plan to put all American citizens under surveillance and he paid the price for exercising his freedom of speech: The IRS stormed his house and held him and his wife and children hostage for several hours, they interrogated him and terrorized his wife and children. This is no isolated incident.
The government is using its unjust, immoral and unconstitutional seizure/forfeiture laws to plunder the assets of law-abiding citizens. McAlvany explains that their purpose is:
1. "To Raise Money for the law enforcement agencies who like the ‘pirates of the Caribbean’, divvy up the loot or plunder among themselves or their agencies (local, state or federal) after a successful raid and seizure." A share of the loot is given to local and state agencies that cooperate with the Feds’ legalized piracy.
2. "To Nail Someone Whom They Do Not Like who resists their regulatory/enforcement efforts or who protest too loudly about their tactics ..."
3. "High Profile Publicity ... for a bust, raid or sting and then try to give it maximum publicity, in order to make their point and,
4. Intimidate Everyone Else In That Group into going along with the government in order to avoid similar treatment."
Tens of thousands of innocent law-abiding Americans have been terrorized, brutalized, sometimes even killed by Federal agents. They have had their property seized, that is to say plundered, by rapacious Federal agents. No evidence is needed for the government to steal your property. A tip from an informant (who shares in the loot) is all that’s needed to bring the Feds to your home with a battering ram to knock down your door, interrogate you, brutalize you or even kill you, and of course, plunder your goods.
They might not even put you on trial or charge you with a crime — they don’t need any evidence: the tyrannical Federal seizure laws allow them to confiscate your private property and keep it or sell it at auction. Who would ever have imagined only thirty years ago that the once respected government would ever operate such a dirty racket as this. The government is averaging 52,000 seizures per year for alleged, but unproven violations of "government privacy, cash reporting, environmental, medical, child abuse, safety, tax, and other regulations". (McAlvany)
McAlvany’s publication reports on several recent government attacks on innocent citizens:
1. Paul and Rosie Berger, age 84 and 91, of Sand Springs Montana were assaulted and terrorized by 20 Federal agents at 6:00 A.M. on Wednesday March 25, 1993. Berger and his wife (both of whom had to be hospitalized after the incident) were questioned for over six hours. Their property was searched by the Federal agents, and "the Bergers were not advised of their rights and were not allowed to call an attorney. For almost six hours, the Feds would not allow any lawyers, neighbors, or local reporters onto the property." The Feds seized two Chevrolet pickup trucks belonging to the Bergers along with some of their farm equipment.
2. Rusty Hardenburg, Ohio — had an FBI SWAT team of more than a dozen armed agents swoop down on his home and confiscate more than 100 computers used for Rusty-N-Eddies Bulletin Board Service. There were no arrests or charges, (nor are there likely to be), but the government gets to keep the loot and auction it off (and keep the proceeds).
3. In 1989 Robert Harwood’s California pharmacy was seized on the mere suspicion that the pharmacist had allegedly distributed valium for non-medical purposes. There was never any trial held or charges proved, but the government still holds the building and the merchandise. Harwood and his wife have since died due to the stress of having their business seized.
Last August 22, CBS Sixty Minutes reported the case of Don Carlson, a law-abiding citizen who lives near San Diego. Without any warning the Federal Storm-Troopers started to knock down Carlson’s door with a battering ram. Carlson was upstairs in his house when he heard the door being knocked down. Fearing a home invasion, he grabbed his handgun and fired at the invaders. The FBI answered with a grenade that left Carlson permanently without the full use of his right arm and leg. The Nazi-Feds did not have a shred of evidence against Carlson, nor did they have any reasonable grounds to suspect him of any wrongdoing.
The case of the elderly Hasselman couple in northern California and the Janice Hart case in Oregon illustrate the arrogance and brutality of the Federal Storm Troopers which rivals the sadistic brutality of Hitler’s Sturmabteilung. The Hasselmans were at their breakfast when a SWAT team of Storm Troopers arrived. The badge toting thugs claimed to have a search warrant, but the terrified Hasselmans did not believe that the invaders were legitimate law enforcement personnel. Mrs. Hasselman tried to call 911, but she never made it to the phone. She and her husband were tackled and brutalized, handcuffed and kept on the ground for ninety minutes.
The Janice Hart Case
The sadistic brutality of the BATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms) Sturmtruppen is clearly evident in the Janice Hart case. The case was described by Margie Boule in the March 7, 1993 edition of the Portland Oregonian:
"Janice Hart had a car full of kids when she pulled up to her house about 7:30 on the evening of Feb. 5. She’d just returned from grocery shopping. Janice Hart is the mother of two young girls. She’s a beautician. She keeps a tidy house.
"On this night, a cold midwinter Friday, she had no idea law enforcement officers had been ransacking her house while she was wandering the aisles at Cub Foods, filling her cart with laundry detergent and her daughters’ favorite breakfast cereals. She had no idea they wanted to take her to jail...
"Janice Hart got out of her car. “I scream out, What are you doing in my house? Get out of my house!” says Janice. She walked to her side door, holding her house key. But the door was jammed. That’s because BATF agents had kicked it in to gain access to the house, and then had nailed it shut.
" “Then this officer tells me to identify myself. He says, You know why the door’s jammed. You know what’s going on. I’m just in a daze. I say, I’m Janice Hart.” Janice says that’s when the officer took her by the arm and pulled her inside, saying, “You’re going to jail.”
"Janice’s daughters, 12 and 4, and a neighborhood friend, 9, heard that part. They got very afraid, very fast. “I was crying,” says Nina, Janice’s 12 year old daughter. “They say, shut up and get back in the car. So I put up my knee like to get out, and he shut the door on my knee.” Nina says an officer searched her purse then, and the trunk of the car. But all there was was groceries.
"Inside, Janice had trouble recognizing her own home. In the kitchen men were shoving dishes to the floor. In Janice’s bedroom they were ripping clothes from hangers and emptying drawers ... “They kept saying, Youre going to prison, Janice.” ...
"... the BATF agents took her down to the basement to be interrogated ... “There’s about eight of them down there, and they’re asking me over and over my name, my Social Security number, my birthdate. On and on, over and over. And I keep answering over and over. And I’m saying, what did I do? I don’t have anything to hide. And I don’t. I’m 36 years old...I have a totally clean record. No arrests, no nothing.”
"Janice says she sat in her basement answering questions for over an hour, before anyone had read her her rights. She says she asked to call an attorney and the agents refused ...
"[the interrogation continues] ... “I’m not a street woman. I’m an everyday type, a working-class mother with two children. This is totally shocking to me. I’m like, I’m not the person you’re looking for and they say, You are, and I say, We can go through this for 30 days. I bet I can hold out longer than you because it’s the truth. That’s when the main investigator, this George Kim, he says to me, You are good, Janice. Youre really a professional (criminal) ... They said an informant said ... I was selling crack cocaine out of my kitchen door. I don’t sell cocaine.”
"A Portland police officer, working with the BATF, took Janice downtown to be fingerprinted ... Janice says, “The Portland police were very, very nice to me. They treated me like a person.” Which is a lot more than Janice can say for the ATF agents. “Especially George Kim,” she said. “He was beyond nasty. I will never forget him as long as I live.”
"It took about 30 seconds for the woman in the fingerprint division to look at Janice Hart’s fingerprints and shake her head. She said, “You guys picked up the wrong person.” Then she turned to me and said, “Baby, you can go home.” "
McAlvany comments asking, "How does this differ from Nazi Germany or Communist Russia? ... It differs because it is happening in the United States of America and on a regular basis! Note the attitudes of the BATF agents ... Note the lack of respect they showed to their suspect or her private property ... In what ways do they differ from the Gestapo?"
Today "FEDS" Have Nullified Citizens Rights
Guaranteed by Constitution
Recently there was another case also aired on the CBS Sixty Minutes program. A Texas businessman (Willie Jones) was about to fly to Houston to close a deal for some seedlings for his nursery. The authorities confiscated $9,000 from the businessman. He was never charged with any crime, nor was there a shred of evidence of any wrongdoing on his part. The Federal authorities displayed an incredible arrogance when they were interviewed by CBS. The Feds claim that the constitution protects your rights only in criminal cases, not in civil matters. This is Hitler/Stalinism, pure and simple — and, by the way, the Constitution does not make that distinction: it states in Article Four of the Bill of Rights: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause..." In typical Nazi/Communist fashion, The Feds have nullified rights that are guaranteed by the Constitution — rights that are as old as Magna Carta of 1215.
Like Adolf Hitler who said "I am the constitution", the Nazi/Communist Feds are now saying "WE are the Constitution" ... “If you insist on traveling with cash in your pockets, well take it from you” ... "if you do anything that we consider ‘suspicious’ we’ll seize your property and you will never get it back". Their message is very clear: "We the government are all powerful — Don’t resist us — You have no rights".
Particularly shameful is the Federal Government’s attempts to entrap citizens into purchasing pornography. Anyone who watches the Rumpole series may remember the case (fictional indeed, but based on the Laws of England) in which the police evidence was overturned because of entrapment. This was, in the words of the Judge, "... manufacturing crime and contrary to Natural Justice" — and as Rumpole said, "It is bloody un-British." Its bloody un-American too, and contrary to Natural Justice, but the Nazi-Feds, and in particular the FBI still conduct this filthy business of peddling pornography to law abiding citizens, and then arresting them on felony charges.
Less Civil Rights Here Than Under KGB
We now have fewer rights than the citizens of Russia. Here a "Knock and announce" warrant allows the police to knock down your door with a battering ram if you don’t answer quickly. In Russia that is illegal — Russian law protects Russian citizens from such barbaric treatment. Also, in Russia evidence is still required before the police can make an arrest. In America, you only need to fit a profile, and that is considered to be "probable cause" of guilt. No evidence is needed for the Nazi/Feds to seize your money and property and ruin you financially.
The Hitler/Stalin types who run our government can arrest you on drug charges just for your mere innocent presence (in the wrong place at the wrong time) without any incriminating evidence against you: even though you are not in possession of drugs and you have made no attempt to buy drugs. (If you are there to innocently collect a debt, the burden of proof is now on you to prove your innocence.) The new laws (such as the seizure laws), and the new interpretation of old laws presume guilt. In Russia, evidence, in the traditional sense of the word, is still required. Such laws as we now have in the USA do violence to the Constitution and to Natural Justice.
The "right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects" is not a mere privilege that the Constitution bestows upon the citizens — it is a right that precedes the Constitution, and is guaranteed by the bill of rights. Anglo-Saxon Common Law is the basis of our legal system. The right to privacy and security goes all the way back to Magna Carta.
Sir William Blackstone, whose Commentaries (1765) are considered to be the definitive work on Common Law wrote: "The liberties of Englishmen ... consist, primarily, in the free enjoyment of personal security, of personal liberty and of private property ..." and "so long as these remain inviolate, the subject is perfectly free." Thanks to the Nazi/Feds of the IRS, the BATF, the FBI, the DEA and their bogus war on drugs (which is really a war against our basic rights as free citizens), We The People are no longer a free people.
U.S. Citizens’ Last Natural Defense
Against Tyranny Also Gravely Undermined
The citizens’ last defense against tyranny is the Second Amendment. Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story wrote in his Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States on the militia describing it as "...the natural defense of a free country against sudden foreign invasions, domestic insurrections, and domestic usurpations of power by rulers..."
He said further:
"The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance enable the people to resist and triumph over them."
It was precisely this principle, that the armed citizens have the right to resist and overthrow usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers, which was invoked in the Declaration of Independence as a justification to overthrow British rule, and that was accomplished by the 1776 Revolution.
People must not be deceived about gun control legislation (allegedly to help prevent crime) and the seizure laws (allegedly to help win the war on drugs). The War on Crime is not stopping criminals, gun control laws only disarm honorable citizens and label as "firearms offenders" and "felons" those whose only crime is to have exercised their constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms. The late Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis wrote: "Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the governments purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding."
The Second Amendment states: "A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." In Presser v. Illinois (1886), the Supreme Court stated: "It is undoubtedly true that all citizens capable of bearing arms constitute the reserved military force or reserve militia of the United States, as well as of the States and, in view of this prerogative of the general government, as well as of its powers, the states cannot, even laying the constitutional provision in question out of view, prohibit the people from keeping and bearing arms, so as to deprive the United States of their rightful resource for the maintaining of public security ..."
In U.S. v. Miller (1939), the Supreme court recognized that "the Militia comprised all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense ... And further, that ordinarily when called for service these men were expected to appear bearing arms supplied by themselves and of the kind in common use at the time."
Blackstone explains that the people have "the right of having and using arms for self preservation and defense." Blackstone states, in the section of his Commentaries subheaded Of the Absolute Rights of Individuals, that the "fifth and last auxiliary right of the subject ... is the having of arms for their defense ...": it is a "natural right of resistance and self-preservation, when the sanctions of society and laws are found insufficient to restrain the violence of oppression."
In the United States we presently have a professional army of career soldiers. Blackstone commented on the concept of a standing army: "In a land of liberty, it is extremely dangerous to make a distinct order of the profession of arms ... The laws know no such state as that of a perpetual standing soldier, bred up to no other profession than that of war ... Nothing then ... ought to be more guarded against in a free state than making the military power ... a body too distinct from the people ..."
The 1968 Gun Control Act is based entirely on the 1938 Gun Control legislation of Nazi Germany, which Hitler used to disarm and enslave the German people. The FBI-BATF and the Kennedy-Metzenbaum types in Congress and the Clintons in the White House are doing the same thing here: they are taking away our last defense against tyranny. That is already tyranny. At the same time, they are disarming the nation of its last defense: That is not only tyranny — it is treason.
The traitors in Federal law enforcement agencies, the traitors in Congress, the traitors in the Supreme Court, and the traitors in the White House have targeted your rights, and anyone who resists is marked out for destruction even by fire! "The devices of power," wrote Henry Clay, "and its minions are the same in all countries and in all ages. It marks its victim; denounces it; and excites the public hatred, to conceal its own abuses and encroachments."2
Mass Murder At Waco, Texas
"On Monday, April 19, 1993," McAlvany writes, "the U.S. government, in an act of mass murder unrivalled in U.S. history (intended to send a warning to gun owners and so-called ‘religious nuts’ across the country), burned 86 people, including 24 children, to death in the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas climaxing a 51-day siege launched by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) on February 28, 1993."3
"The BATF," McAlvany continues, "botched the original raid in every way possible, maintaining that they were simply trying to serve a search warrant to look for illegal weapons inside the compound (i.e., with 100 troops, stun grenades, helicopter gunships, etc.)." What the facts of the case make most clear is that the BATF did not intend to merely serve a warrant, but to execute a murderous Blitzkrieg assault on the Davidians. McClennon County authorities had already conducted a previous search of the Davidian compound after serving a search warrant, and in that investigation the Davidians were completely exonerated of any illegal activity. The Feds had no evidence to justify a search. Alan Bock, senior columnist of the Orange County Register, wrote on April 8, 1993:
... It soon became evident that the thuggish BATF is the pond scum of federal law enforcement agencies. But too few dug a little deeper to question whether the raid was, in any sense justified.
To date there’s still no solid evidence that the BATF even had good reason to believe the compound contained illegal weapons. The best conjecture now is that the BATF sought a conspicuous enforcement action against a tiny and despised religious minority to make its cowboy agents look like heroes.
The Feds could have served the search warrant on Koresh on any of the frequent occasions that he went into town to shop and eat. Such a course of action, however, would not have helped the Feds to secure their murderous objectives.
Former McClennon county District Attorney, Vic Feazell, who conducted the County investigation of the Davidians, said of the Davidians, "They're protective of whats theirs. They’re protective of their land. They view their land as Muslims do Mecca and Jews view Jerusalem ... if they’d (the BATF) called and talked to them, the Davidians wouldve given them what they wanted." However, the BATF did not come to search — they came to kill. They came as an attacking army, in such force that the Davidians could only respond in the manner dictated by the most basic human instinct — self preservation. It is precisely this reaction on the part of the Davidians, the use of armed force, that the Feds intended to provoke by their full scale military attack — in order to justify the slaughter that the Feds had planned long in advance.
"The attack," McAlvany writes, "had been planned for nearly a year, using an almost identical replica compound in Arkansas built for training by the BATF ... Several unarmed Branch Davidians not in the compound, but on or near the grounds were shot and killed by BATF snipers at the time of the raid (or that evening) ... Military helicopters shot at the compound from above and killed a young girl sitting on her bed nursing a baby."
After the initial attack, Vic Feazell accused the BATF of a "vulgar display of power." Subsequent to the first BATF attack Feazell predicted that the government would kill all the Davidians, and after the massacre (the second attack) he said that "they intended to kill these people from the beginning to cover the tracks of their own crimes they committed by raiding the compound to begin with."
Banned Poison Gas Used Against Waco Victims
The final attack of Federal Storm Troopers on the Branch Davidian compound is a crime so monstrous that it ranks in magnitude with the extermination carried out in Auschwitz and Treblinka, where the victims, as in Waco, were killed with lethal gas, and then incinerated. At 6:30 AM, Monday April 19, government tanks began ramming and punching holes into the Davidian compound, and a Special Operations Team from Quantico, Virginia, pumped o-chlorobenzylidene malonitrile (an oxygen inhibiter similar to the lethal gas used for execution in the gas chamber) for the next six hours.
O-chlorobenzylidene malonitrile (CS gas) has been banned as a chemical warfare battlefield agent by the Chemical Weapons Convention of Paris, signed by the U.S. and 130 other nations. In "higher concentrations, such as a building," says Neal Knox, head of the Firearms Coalition, "it immobilizes by nausea, vomiting and vertigo." When I asked a doctor who is knowledgeable about CS gas, if the pumping of this gas into an inhabited building for six hours clearly demonstrates the intent to commit murder, the doctor answered emphatically in the affirmative.
Thomas Charles Swearengen in his authoritative reference, Tear Gas Munitions, states that in "situations where it is desired to drive a mob from an area, the use of CS may hamper the movement of the rioters because of the rapid and severe onslaught of symptoms." Clearly then, the governments claim that the gas was used to drive the Davidians out of the building was a lie.
The purpose of gassing the compound with CS gas obviously was not to drive the inhabitants out, but to incapacitate them — to keep them in so that they could be killed quickly and efficiently. After six hours of gassing, many, perhaps most of the Davidians were probably already dead. The fire was necessary to finish the grisly deed.
The FBI planned the fire in advance for two reasons:
1. When CS gas is "heated to decomposition it emits very toxic fumes of Cl [Chlorine], NO [Nitriles], and CN [Cyanide].4" The fire maximized the killing potential of the poison gas.
2. The fire destroyed the evidence that the Feds had murdered the Davidians with poison gas. Thanks to the fire, a mass of dead gas victims would not be found and filmed, like the Kurd civilians who were gassed to death by the Iraqi army.
U.S. Army Special forces retired Lt. Col. James "Bo" Gritz has stated that "the dispersant used in CS gas, known in military assault circles as ‘CAP’, is a highly flammable dust initiator. Just a small spark would cause CS gas to explode into an uncontrollable and engulfing fire." The FBI called Waco hospitals, and hospitals as far away as Dallas, telling them to get ready for a large number of burn victims. However, the fact that they did not call the fire department until thirty minutes after the fire was started, and then prevented the firemen from fighting the fire for another hour is very strong evidence that the FBI used the fire for the purpose of destroying all the evidence of their crime.
There is strong evidence that the Feds deliberately set the fire: an FBI sniper said he saw through his scope men in black inside the compound just before the fire broke out. When questioned on camera by reporters, Branch Davidian survivor, Renos Avraam said, "The fire wasn’t started by us." Koresh and his people never wore black, but the BATF, FBI and special operations forces do wear black uniforms.4 This is why the press was kept three miles away, and the fire department was kept away: to cover the escape of the special operations forces. The site was then put off limits to state and local authorities and to the press — then it was bulldozed. All the evidence was thereby destroyed.
Janet Reno’s flimsy justification for the attack on the Davidian compound betrays homicidal intent. Reno incredibly gives "concern for the children" as a reason to gas them to death. "CS gas," says Bo Gritz, "... is designed to knock you down and makes you incapable of any practical functions." To order the use of this gas to be used on women and children, thereby immobilizing them and preventing them from running away from the building turned gas-chamber is unspeakably cruel and monstrous. Reno, "the Butcher of Waco", should be tried for first degree murder.
Amnesty International speaks of CS gas as "particularly dangerous when used in massive quantities ... or when launched into homes or other buildings." Clearly Renos intention, and that of the FBI-BATF was mass murder.
There was no evidence of child abuse. The Texas child welfare department had visited the Davidian compound several times and said they found no evidence of child abuse. According to psychiatrist, Dr. Bruce Perry, after intensive psychological as well as physical examinations, "none of the 21 children had been sexually abused or molested." "One of the children living in the compound," McAlvany reports, "told her father ... that ‘it was a joy to live there.’ ... Koresh and his followers held no hostages, had committed no violent crimes, were not threatening to kill or harm anyone. They were minding their own business on their own property. Everyone in the compound was there of their own free will." Child abuse is a matter of State jurisdiction, not the federal government.
On April 22, The Washington Times wrote:
"The powerful chemical the FBI used at the Branch Davidian compound would have turned the cult’s children’s last moments into a final hell," chemical experts said yesterday. "It would have panicked the children whose eyes would have involuntarily shut. Their throats and lungs would have been burning. They would have been coughing wildly," said Benjamin Garrett. "Eventually they would have been vomiting in a final hell."
McAlvany notes that it is obvious "that the government (and the BATF) wanted a highly publicized ‘victory’over gun owners and ‘religious nuts’ ..." "The tragedy near Waco," wrote syndicated columnist Paul Craig Roberts, "happened precisely because of the federal laws regulating gun ownership. The Branch Davidians hadn’t assaulted anyone. They lived peacefully in the community. Except for federal gun laws they would all still be alive."
Already Many Waco Style Attacks Across U.S.A.
Desmond Griffin has written in the Midnight Messenger newsletter, "Although the Waco tragedy is the bloodiest and most tragic event of its kind thus far, the initial raid that led up to it certainly wasn’t unique; it was, in fact, just one of thousands of similar raids that have been staged nationwide in recent years by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the U.S. Marshals Service." "Last year alone," says McAlvany, "the BATF raided over 2000 homes or businesses with a number of innocent victims killed, and tens of millions in assets seized ..."
The U. S. Senate Judiciary Sub-Committee on the Constitution has reported that "75% of BATF gun prosecutions were aimed at ordinary citizens, who had neither criminal intent nor knowledge, but were enticed by agents into unknowing technical violations." It was this sort of BATF entrapment that led to the federal governments murderous raid on the Weaver family in Idaho.
As in the Waco massacre, the U.S. Marshals alleged to have intended to execute a warrant on Randall Weaver, but their actions clearly manifested their criminal intent, not to execute a warrant, but to execute Mr. Weaver. Federal agents shot young Sam Weaver in the back, killing him in cold blood, and gunned down Weaver’s wife with a bullet to the head, as she stood in the doorway holding her infant child in her arms.
Only an alert reporter who waved a video camera in the air prevented the Weaver family from the same kind of fiery hell that consumed the Waco compound. A government helicopter was about to drop napalm on the Weaver cabin when the alert reporter’s camera caused the helicopter to fly away. The BATF-FBI Storm Troopers grabbed the bodies of Sam and Vicki Weaver and cremated them, in order to destroy trial evidence from autopsies.
"When Gordon Kahl was killed in Arkansas by government agents in 1983," McAlvany reports, "the cabin in which he was killed was burnt to the ground and Kahl’s body and all evidence at the crime scene was burned up." Clearly, the massacre and the fire at Waco were the deliberate work of homicidal federal agents — they have a history of such grisly deeds — it is their Modus Operandi.
New World Order Threat
The Waco Massacre was intended to make an example of what treatment awaits those who constitute a threat to the New World Order simply because they do not intend to meekly give up their constitutional rights to keep and bear arms or their exercise of religious freedom. Particularly chilling was Bill Clinton’s not so veiled threat, voiced on the day of the massacre: "I hope that others who will be tempted to join cults ... will be deterred by the horrible scenes they have seen over the past seven weeks." Clinton also said, "There is unfortunately a rise in this sort of fanaticism all over the world, and we may have to confront it again."
The dangerous new definition of "religious fanatic" and "dangerous cultist" according to the New Age secular humanists who run this country now includes Traditional Catholics, Bible-Believing Protestants, Constitutionalists, home-schoolers and Pro-lifers.
Families are being harassed by the FBI and financially ruined by the IRS for no other reason than their ties to non-violent Pro-life organizations. Janet Reno is making good on her threat to get tough on those who do not agree with her government’s policy which promotes the murder of the unborn. One is not surprised, however, when those who defend the lives of unborn children are persecuted by the "Butcher of Waco", who ordered the Auschwitz-style extermination of the defenseless children in the Branch Davidian compound.
McAlvany warns, "There is a black cloud rolling across the land. We are being moved irresistibly toward a socialist police state with many of the trappings of Communist Russia and Nazi Germany." It is time for Americans to resist, and to speak up.
Martin Niemoeller, a Lutheran pastor imprisoned in Dachau in 1938 said:
"In Germany, the Nazis first came for the communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Finally they came for me, but there was no one left to speak up."
Wake Up, Act and Pray
It is time to wake up and act — Resist! We must work, as St. Ignatius Loyola says, as though everything depends on us, and pray, as though everything depends on God. Everything does depend on Him, and therefore it is necessary that we act in conformity with God’s Eternal Law. Human solutions will not save us from the Anti-Christ rulers who seek the ruin of all who resist their corruption, their iniquity, their crimes against humanity, and their crimes against God.
We must do reparation, say the Rosary every day and resist evil. Sister Lucy of Fatima tells us that the Rosary is a very powerful weapon for each of us and our country especially in times like these.
She said, "The Most Holy Virgin in these last times in which we live has given a new efficacy to the recitation of the Holy Rosary.
"She has given this efficacy to such an extent that there is no problem, no matter how difficult it is, whether temporal or above all spiritual, in the personal life of each one of us, of our families, of the families of the world, or of the religious communities, or even of the life of the peoples and nations, that cannot be solved by the Rosary.
"There is no problem I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the Prayer of the Rosary. With the Holy Rosary, we will save ourselves. We will sanctify ourselves. We will console Our Lord and obtain the salvation of many souls."
Our Lady of Fatima came to show sinful humanity the way back to God. We must obey Her, only She can help us.
We must not lose hope: In the end Her Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Pope will consecrate Russia to Her Immaculate Heart, and a period of peace will be given to the world.
