Mom Accused of Helping Sons Make Their Mark — on Buildings

Police say an Echo Park woman drove five teenagers around so they could spray graffiti. About 100 sites were hit, authorities contend.

On Avalon Street in Echo Park, Victoria Villicano is known as a devoted mother who is often seen behind the wheel of her SUV, driving her two teenage sons to stores and sporting events.

But Los Angeles Police Department detectives say the 42-year-old woman also drove a five-member tagging crew, including her two children, around Silver Lake and Echo Park, stopping long enough for the group to jump out and vandalize.

Backers of illegal immigration at a rally near Los Angeles took down an American flag at a U.S. post office, stamped on it and replaced it with a Mexican flag as police looked on, according to witnesses and a video of the event.

Police officers in Maywood, Calif., Saturday eventually came to the pole to remove the flag but had bottles and rocks thrown at them, a radio listener named Sandra reported to the Terry Anderson show, heard on KRLA in Los Angeles.





Conservative thinker Michael Ledeen holds the Freedom Chair at the American Enterprise Institute, but prefers the term “democratic revolutionary” to “neoconservative.” He discusses the current and future U.S. policy toward Iran, arguing that the United States should encourage change from within the country, rather than launching an all-out attack.



In Pro-Israel Circles, Doubts Grow Over US Policy
by Jim Lobe

A growing debate within Israel over whether United States President George W. Bush’s Middle East policies really serve the interests of the Jewish state has spread to Washington, where influential voices within the U.S. Jewish community are questioning the administration’s hard-line positions in the region.

Coming in the wake of the month-long war between Israel and Lebanon’s Hezbollah, during which Washington provided virtually unconditional support and encouragement to Tel Aviv, the debate has focused initially on the wisdom of Bush’s efforts to isolate rather than engage Syria, the indispensable link in the military supply chain between Iran and the Shia militia.

But the debate over Syria policy may mark the launch of a broader challenge among Israel’s supporters here to the administration’s reliance on unilateralism, military power, and “regime change” in the Middle East – whose most fervent champions have been neoconservatives and the right-wing leadership of the so-called “Israel lobby.”

“Bush has been convinced by self-appointed spokesmen for Israel and the Jewish community that endless war is in Israel’s interest,” asserted the lead editorial in the U.S.’ most important Jewish newspaper, the Forward, immediately after the cease-fire took effect.

“[Bush] needs to hear in no uncertain terms that Israel is ready for dialogue, that the alternative – endless jihad – is unthinkable,” declared the paper, which argued for Israel’s participation in a regional dialogue with its Arab neighbors, including Syria, for a comprehensive peace settlement. “Now is time to change the tune,” the Forward concluded.



SYRIA: “Chavez of Arabia” Greeted as Hero in Damascus

Thousands of Syrians lined the streets of their capital Wednesday waving banners welcoming Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who opened his visit with a pledge to stand by Syria in strong opposition to the US government’s “imperialistic” aggression in the Middle East.

“We have the same political vision, and we will resist together the American imperialist aggression,” Chavez told reporters upon his arrival at Damascus airport late Tuesday.

On Wednesday, Syrian President Bashar Assad hosted Chavez at the hilltop People’s Palace, where the two leaders strolled down a red carpet alongside a 21-gun salute. A marching band played both national anthems as the leaders reviewed the honor guard.

Officials of both governments will sign a document opposing Washington’s “aggression” in the Middle East, Chavez said.

Assad greeted Chavez at the airport Tuesday night and thanked him for his support for Middle Eastern nations. He told reporters he saw Chavez’s visit as “historic,” and that the Venezuelan leader had made “great stands” in support of Arab causes.

“We appreciate your sincere feelings toward the peoples who have their rights and are under occupation, as well as your sincere humanitarian and moral sentiments,” Assad was quoted as saying through an interpreter.

Chavez said he and Syria shared a “decisive and firm” stance against “imperialism” and American attempts for “domination.”

Earlier this month, Chavez compared Israel’s attacks on Hizbullah to the Holocaust and withdrew Venezuela’s ambassador to the Jewish state.



Ashworth reckons that 30 percent of all the jobs created since the end of the last recession in 2001 – 1.4 million – have been in sectors related to the housing market boom, from construction to DIY stores. As the boom runs out of steam, he calculates that 73,000 jobs a month will be lost.

U.S. Housing Slump Fuels Crash Fears

The downturn in the US housing market will force businesses to slash 73,000 jobs a month in the new year and could be more damaging to the world economy than the dotcom crash, economists have warned. After official figures last week showed that the number of new homes sold in July was 22 per cent lower than a year earlier, while prices were almost flat, fears are mounting that the ‘orderly’ housing slowdown predicted by the Federal Reserve will become a full-blown crash. ‘Things do seem to be getting worse very quickly. Freefall is a strong word, but I think it’s the right one to use here,’ said Paul Ashworth, chief US economist at Capital Economics.



Government without Representation: A Call to Action

By Charles Sullivan

There are events in human history that galvanize a people into action. Such events are so profoundly wrong and troubling that they can no longer be ignored by the great majority of the citizenry. Instinct tells us that we are nearing a crossroads in the history of our nation, when we must decide upon a course of action. In this momentous decision there can be no neutrality. It is understood that there can be no reconciliation with corrupt power and authority. Either we stay the course and witness the systematic destruction of not only our own nation, but perhaps the entire world; or we refuse our allegiance to this system of inequity called capitalism and operate upon a new premise, or paradigm.

Jewish lifeguards draw line in the sand

Leader of lifeguards’ union at Jones Beach levels accusations of anti-Semitism against state parks officials

Newsday Staff Writer

August 31, 2006

A leader of the lifeguards’ union at Jones Beach has accused state officials who run the beach of singling out Jewish lifeguards for discipline.

Some of the lifeguards in question are also active in the union, according to the leader, Roy Lester, but he said the pattern is clear.

“Fact. The vast majority of our lifeguards are not Jewish. Fact: The vast majority of all threatened disciplines and denials of rights this year have been to lifeguards who are Jewish,” Lester, 56, who is not Jewish, said in a weekly union newsletter earlier this month.

In another newsletter, he said that “it seems that blatant anti-Semitism is encouraged” in the agency — the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.

VIDEO | Keith Olbermann: There Is Fascism, Indeed
Keith Olbermann says: “The confusion is about whether this secretary of defense, and this administration, are in fact now accomplishing what they claim the terrorists seek: the destruction of our freedoms, the very ones for which the same veterans Mr. Rumsfeld addressed yesterday in Salt Lake City so valiantly fought. And about Mr. Rumsfeld’s other main assertion, that this country faces a ‘new type of fascism.’ As he was correct to remind us how a government that knew everything could get everything wrong, so too was he right when he said that, though probably not in the way he thought he meant it. This country faces a new type of fascism – indeed.”


JEW MARGOLIS: The Big Lie About ‘Islamic Fascism’

The term “Islamofascist” is utterly without meaning, but packed with emotional explosives. It is a propaganda creation worthy Dr. Goebbels, and the latest expression of the big lie technique being used by neocons in Washington’s propaganda war against its enemies in the Muslim World…. The real modern fascists are not in the Muslim World, but Washington. The neocons screaming fascist the loudest, are the true fascists themselves. It’s a pity that communist and leftist propaganda so debased the term “neo- fascist” that it has become almost meaningless. Because that is what we should be calling the so- called neocons, for that is what they really are.



Will David Irving Be Out of Prison Soon?

British Holocaust revisionist David Irving, who was jailed earlier this year in Austria, could be out in a matter of months, according to his new lawyer. The historian was jailed for three years by a court in Vienna for denying the Holocaust – an offence under Austrian law – in speeches given to far-right groups in 1989. But his lawyer Herbert Schaller, 83, believes an appeals court will overturn his verdict and says they are now just waiting for a decision, which he expects by the autumn.



Two scholars who created a controversy earlier this year when they wrote that the pro-Israel lobby exerted too much influence over U.S. foreign policy said Monday that the recent Israel-Hezbollah war in Lebanon was yet another example of what they view as a dangerous tendency. John Mearsheimer, a University of Chicago political science professor, and Stephen Walt, a professor of international relations at Harvard University’s Kennedy School, said the U.S. government’s unstinting support for Israel’s recent war in Lebanon once again placed the agenda of what they call the Israel lobby ahead of U.S. strategic interests.



PCROBERTS: The Five Morons Revisited

One of the lessons one learns in life is that things are not always what they seem to be. Before I watched Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer’s National Press Club broadcast on C-Span (August 28), I regarded AIPAC [American Israel Public Affairs Committee] as Israel’s friend and promoter. Now I realize that I was wrong. As the two distinguished professors made perfectly clear, anyone who cares about the survival of Israel should scorn the bribes, threats, and blandishments of AIPAC. AIPAC led the Israeli government onto a path where diplomacy is no longer a tool that Israel can use. Backed into a corner with no tool but violence, Israel faces hundreds of millions of increasingly angry Muslims.


Nobody can understand what’s going on politically in the United States without being aware that a political coalition of major pro-Likud groups, pro-Israel neoconservative intellectuals and Christian Zionists is exerting a tremendously powerful influence on the American government and its policies. Over time, this large pro-Israel Lobby, spearheaded by the Americn Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), has extended its comprehensive grasp over large segments of the U.S. government, including the vice president’s office, the Pentagon and the State Department, besides controlling the legislative apparatus of Congress.


For the past several decades the centrepiece of US Middle Eastern policy has been its relationship with Israel. The combination of unwavering support for Israel and the related effort to spread ‘democracy’ throughout the region has inflamed Arab and Islamic opinion and jeopardised not only US security but that of much of the rest of the world. This situation has no equal in American political history. Why has the US been willing to set aside its own security and that of many of its allies in order to advance the interests of another state? The thrust of US policy in the region derives almost entirely from domestic politics, and especially the activities of the ‘Israel Lobby’.


University of Chicago political scientist John Mearsheimer was in town yesterday to elaborate on his view that American Jewish groups are responsible for the war in Iraq, the destruction of Lebanon’s infrastructure and many other bad things…. This line of argument could be considered a precarious one for two blue-eyed men with Germanic surnames. And, indeed, Walt seemed defensive about the charges of anti-Semitism. He cautioned that the Israel lobby “is not a cabal,” that it is “not synonymous with American Jews” and that “there is nothing improper or illegitimate about its activities.” But Mearsheimer made no such distinctions as he used “Jewish activists,” “major Jewish organizations” and the “Israel lobby” interchangeably.



SAT Score Drop Is Biggest in 31 Years

The high school class of 2006 recorded the sharpest drop in SAT scores in 31 years, a decline that the exam’s owner, the College Board, said was partly due to some students taking the newly lengthened test only once instead of twice…. The results come several months after numerous colleges reported surprisingly low SAT scores for this year’s incoming college freshmen. The nonprofit College Board, which had said scores would be down this year, released figures Tuesday showing combined critical reading and math skills fell seven points on average to 1021…. The average critical reading score fell from 508 to 503, while math dropped from 520 to 518.


Study: Teacher’s Gender Affects Learning

Aug. 28, 2006 — For all the differences between the sexes, here’s one that might stir up debate in the teacher’s lounge: Boys learn more from men and girls learn more from women.

That’s the upshot of a provocative study by Thomas Dee, an associate professor of economics at Swarthmore College and visiting scholar at Stanford University. His study was to appear Monday in Education Next, a quarterly journal published by the Hoover Institution.


His study comes as the proportion of male teachers is at its lowest level in 40 years. Roughly 80 percent of teachers in U.S. public schools are women.



Sacrificing truth on the altar of diversity

By Jeff Jacoby, Globe Columnist | August 30, 2006

YOU’RE A publisher of children’s textbooks, and you have a problem. Your diversity guidelines — quotas in all but name — require you to include pictures of disabled children in your elementary and high school texts, but it isn’t easy to find handicapped children who are willing and able to pose for a photographer. Kids confined to wheelchairs often suffer from afflictions that affect their appearance, such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy. How can you meet your quota of disability images if you don’t have disabled models who are suitably photogenic?

Well, you can always do what Houghton Mifflin does. The well-known textbook publisher keeps a wheelchair on hand as a prop and hires able-bodied children from a modeling agency to pose in it. It keeps colorful pairs of crutches on hand, too — in case a child model turns out to be the wrong size for the wheelchair.

Houghton Mifflin’s ploy was recently described by reporter Daniel Golden in a Wall Street Journal story on the lengths to which publishers go to get images of minorities and the disabled into grade-school textbooks. A Houghton Mifflin spokesman claimed that able-bodied models are presented as handicapped only as a last resort. But according to one of the company’s regular photographers, the deception is the norm. At least three-fourths of the children portrayed as disabled in Houghton Mifflin textbooks actually aren’t, she told Golden. In fact, publishers have to keep track of all the models they use for such pictures, so that a child posing as disabled in one chapter isn’t shown running or climbing a tree in another.



The Real Abraham Lincoln: A Debate



Duke Witness Acquitted
Posted by William L. Anderson at 07:52 AM

The cab driver who gave Reade Seligmann a ride when prosecutor Michael Nifong claims Seligmann was committing a rape elsewhere was acquitted of criminal charges yesterday. Moezeldin Ahmed Elmostafa gave a ride to shoplifter Lisa Hawkins after she had stolen some purses from a store at a Durham mall three years ago. I earlier blogged that the Duke prosecutor would try to trump up charges against Elmostafa, and he nearly succeeded.

The news story I have linked, however, only tells a tiny portion, and one of the attorneys in the case filled me in this morning. It seems that the prosecution met with Hawkins two nights ago and tried to get her to claim that Elmostafa was in on the theft. She refused to give that story, and was returned to her cell. (The meeting went on for more than an hour, according to the attorney.)

Did the prosecution try to indice Hawkins to give false testimony? I would not be surprised. I have been saying for some time that we are seeing a criminal conspiracy on behalf of the prosecutor and Durham police in this case. If Elmostafa had been convicted, his testimony in the case against Seligmann could have been impeached and part of the clear exculpatory evidence thrown out. In other words, the prosecution was trying to perpetuate a lie in order to win a case.

On another front, Stuart Taylor has a devastating story criticizing the New York Times [ON VNN MAIN PAGE] for that awful article it published last week on the Duke case. A number of bloggers, including me, tore into that piece of propaganda for the prosecution, but Taylor not only finishes the job, but also brings in new information that further demonstrates that this prosecution is a lie, and involves criminal actions on behalf of Nifong and the Durham police.

While some readers have sent critical emails telling me this case is meaningless and that I am a fool (or worse) for pursuing it, I consider it important because we are seeing government agents actively breaking the law in broad daylight, and so far getting away with it. State oppression does not only occur at the national level, but also at state and local levels and needs to be exposed for what it is.


Much of national talk radio today serves the same purpose as Big Brother’s Ministry of Truth by endlessly spinning coverage of the issues in a light favorable to the chosen party line. Narrowly constructed arguments attempt to define issues with the false choices of liberal vs. conservative, Republican vs. Democrat, etc. Airwaves bristle with constant agitation for war and the demonizing of those who are designated as enemies.

Even the “two minutes hate” has its place wherein those who refuse to toe the party line can expect to be labeled, denounced and berated by the ministry’s defenders. And, as in Orwell’s novel, the audience screams its approval.

Talk radio was once a place where disagreement was actually encouraged in contrast to the more sedate National Public Radio programs that consisted primarily of folks sitting around politely agreeing with one another. Disagreement provided the catalyst for wide-ranging discussions. Though the politics of talk radio ran hard to the political right, many listeners found that it tended to stimulate independent thought. If nothing else, it made for compelling exchanges and vigorous dialogue.

Throughout the Clinton years, talk radio was a rallying point for the political right while engaging in a boisterous and vigorous resistance to the left. It was highly ideological, but provided a counter to the political left’s mainstream media juggernaut. Where the major media was more likely to embrace a collectivist viewpoint, talk radio for the most part still held to traditional beliefs in constitutional government, personal liberty, religious freedom, and strong national defense.

But the 9/11 attacks were the watershed moment from which the new voice of talk radio would emerge.



We’ve deluded ourselves into believing in the myth of the noble and peaceful primitive…. We’ve constructed a fantasy past in which primitive societies lived in peace and security with nary a fear that their crops would be stolen or their children enslaved. War has been the natural condition of mankind for thousands of years, and our civilization is a very fragile exception to that. What does it say about us that so many of our elites believe exactly the opposite — that we are a monstrous violent rupture with our primitive pacifist ancestors? It’s never a good idea to put reality up for grabs. You can bet your highest-denomination axe on that.



Okay so what’s the big deal? I’ll tell you. Great Britain has found a way to impose more and better paranoia and control over Her Majesty’s “free” subjects. Blair has bugged their wheelie bins! That’s right, bugged. Tiny little electronic sensors have been secretly hidden in them to monitor rubbish contents. It’s about time too! We can’t have people tossing out their refuse without some sort of governmental surveillance program.

The problem seems to be that once in a while Andy Capp has one too enough pints of Guinness after the football match. Then in his blubbering inebriated state, he accidentally tosses his two-dozen plus empty cans into the wheelie bin marked “Bangers and Mash” instead of diligently placing them in the bin marked “aluminium” (pronounced al loo MIN eeum). This makes the weight of the wheelie bin much too heavy. Thanks to the secret electronic device, the Sanitation Truck measures the excess weight, and Andy gets a whoppin’ big penalty for his indiscretion. Never mind the fact that as a drunken blithering idiot he’s a public nuisance. That’s culture. Having an extra pound of aluminium in the usual daily household flotsam and jetsam simply isn’t cricket and Andy must go before the magistrate to be ordered to pay his debt to society.



NATIONALIST WEEK No.97 24th August 2006
The Weekly Online e-zine of the British People’s Party

“Men fight for freedom, then they begin to accumulate laws to take it away from themselves. “

Nationalist Week exclusive interview with Simon Sheppard – Victim of the Race Acts tyranny.

Nationalist Week recently interviewed Simon Sheppard, publisher and operator of the Heretical Press website. He has been active on the Nationalist scene for some time. Simon came to his conclusion that Nationalism was the answer after publishing two medical papers and going on to study human behaviour, involving over three years of original research.

Nationalist Week (NW): Simon, we understand that you are the subject of a number of Race Relations charges relating to the Heretical Press website and one publication too. Can you detail the charges?

Simon Sheppard (SS):I was raided on 30th March 2005 in respect of the satirical comic book ‘Tales of the Holohoax.’ During this raid much of my personal property was also removed. There was then a lapse of about a year and then on 12th April this year again an unbelievable dozen police
stormed in, in the early hours of the morning whilst I was still asleep.

NW: What happened then?

SS: This second heavy-handed raid, which was supposed to be in respect of the website, also resulted in a large amount of personal property – which was in no way connected to any charge – being seized. This is still in the possession of the police.

NW: Then what happened?

SS: I have had to answer to police bail no less than a ridiculous six times!

NW: Have you been formally charged?

SS: The last time I attended police bail I noticed that Special Branch were involved as the SB officer in charge of the case was in attendance. I was then taken to into a charge room and was shocked when no less than TEN charges under the obnoxious Race Acts were read out to me.

NW: This surely is a new record of ZOG suppression of freedom of speech on the Internet. Do you intend Simon to fight these ludicrous charges?

SS: I am going to fight these unjust charges tooth and nail.

NW: That’s the only way Simon. We must all stand together and fight for freedom of thought, word and action for White Nationalists in the UK.

SS: The last time I was prosecuted, the only way I could see of getting my arguments before a jury was to defend myself. This time however I am backed by a solid legal team.

NW: When are you due to appear in court next?

SS: I have to attend a magistrate’s court for a preliminary hearing on 1st September.

NW: You seem to be cool and disciplined to your fight against these charges – how can other White Nationalists help you?

SS: When I was raided the second time, shortly before I was released I told the police that only a couple of nights previously I had been thinking of taking a back seat and letting things take their natural course but, following this
second raid, this will no longer be the case. I have prepared a very promising publication, which is intended to be delivered door to door, but this will involve considerable financial outlay. If there is any financial help – hopefully of a substantial nature (the printing bill alone of £1,000 is coming out of my own pocket and that is just for starters!) – that White Nationalists can give then I will feel that I am getting some really solid and effective support. It’s a fantastic
publication and definitely a worthy cause, as well as a fitting retaliation for the raids I have endured.

NW: To all comrades reading this revealing interview and who wish to back Simon in his struggle please make your cheques and PO’s out to “Heretical Press” and send to PO Box 1004, Hull, HU3 2YT.

NW: What is the exact nature of the charges?

SS: There is one charge in respect of ‘Tales of the Holohoax’ which is already in print and is receiving wide circulation. The other nine charges are all in respect of web pages and this sort of charge is, as far as I am aware, unprecedented.

NW: We couldn’t agree more. This is the opening salvo of ZOG’s attack on White Nationalism on the Internet.

SS: It wouldn’t be a good idea to go into detail about how the case is going to be fought but there are a great many legal objections, which will be raised against these unique charges.

NW: We are sure all right minded patriots of EVERY group and party are totally outraged at this shocking action and will join as one to help you in your courageous stand for freedom of speech for all White Nationalists!

God, the oldest fraud…


Ethno-masochism corner.
—– Original Message —–
From: Dee-dee F.

Any excuse to induce guilt in Whites, and a self-loathing, which inevitably results in miscegenation – a form of genocide, for your race then ceases to exist and all those eons of breeding that it took to produce you, are lost. It’s time for whites to stand up and shake off the shackles of guilt and take pride in our history, Unfortunately, too much of it was unbeknown to most of us, in service of the nacent NWO in the form of the Rothschilds. Even the East Africa Company was the tool of the Rothschilds.

Zum Kotzen!
Makes the Stomach Turn: It’s International Mea Culpa Week! Kiss it Whitey!

Following hot on the heels of former minister Adriaan BeVlok’s shining example, we receive news of the imminent arrival of a Europe-Africa Reconciliation Process (EARP) ship of fools. EARP groupies are visiting Southern Africa to apologise on behalf of Europeans for the collective sins of colonialism and slavery.

The mostly Christian members of EARP will be shuffling to Harare on their well-worn knees, to deliver a grinding apology to His Most Exalted Excellency, President Robert Mugarbage. The Zimboonian tyrant has not indicated that he will actually receive this motley group of mystics, but according to an acolyte, chances are good that he will not pass up on this heaven-sent white-bashing ritual.

A team of podiatrists, led by Drs Ben Dover and Holden Mecrotch will be despatched to inspect suitable cadidates for the gala foot washing event to be held at the Chikurubi Institute of Guilt Renascence.

The Statement of Confession, a veritable guilt tripping tour de force (viewable here) will be recited ad nauseam to the toe-curling edification of assembled, shoe-less African dignitaries.

Local retailers are reportedly stocking up on foot washing apparel, with a few entrepreneurs bundling complete confession kits that will include towels, foot basins and Lifebuoy soap. Also available are optional extras (aimed at the more ardent guilt trippers) such as Opus Dei style
barbed thigh rings and a selection of spiked chains & whips.

Minister in the Office of the Presidency, Essop Pahad, is reportedly keen on delivering a keynote speech entitled “Kneepad: Towards the Establishment of a Common Framework on the Total Achievement of White Moral Serfdom”.

Needless to say, proceedings will receive gushing, wall to wall media coverage, with a lone dissenting voice emanating from an anonymous sectarian group, who are reportedly alarmed at what they term “foot fetishism and sado-masochistic practices masquerading as utterly contrived atonement”.

Subject: The Alex Linder Interview
To: [email protected]


I wanted to comment on the Alex Linder interview, which I listened to, at least the majority of, the other night. I didn’t know what to expect, and had read some feedback, but still I was surprised at what I heard. I was surprised to hear a guest hand the hosts heads to them the way Alex Linder did to you two.

To compare the show to a 15 round boxing match, I wouldn’t say it was a knockout, but more like a match where Alex Linder won around 10 rounds, and you two won around 5. The part where you called the mother of his children a “whore” and during the same interview, said he needed to “control his temper” or words to that effect, when clearly it was one of you who had already lost his temper and composure, gave me quite a chuckle. I could go on, but I think you probably see my point.

Thanks for giving me an entertaining experience. I believe I’m going to send his organization a small donation, just because he did so well under such hostile conditions. Do you treat all your guests so poorly, or just the ones who stick up for white people?


Mike K.



Great job. A weenie like Strom would never confront the enemy like this. Ed Steele and Duke does it. Of course you and Steele will go on the attack more than Duke. There’s no doubt in my mind that many listeners in Los Angeles identified with what you were saying and will now become involved in the struggle. The fact that you maintained your
composure and didn’t succumb to their baiting really burned them up. That’s why the one had to resort to calling your woman a whore at the end. He really showed what kind of filth he was with that one.

Chris in AL.


Alex, I was impressed at your showing in a recent radio broadcast. I understand what you’re doing–but you have to be more focused in talking past those douches and more to the listeners. Also, you should have been diplomatic w/ the nigger, and agreed w/ him that slavery was wrong and spoke more forcefully that you wouldn’t have done it (and indeed blame it on the judeo-christinsanity/WM’s Burden, which now manifests itself as judeo-pop culture). You could’ve had a moment w/ it, Jane Goddall style.

They were trying to box you in as an ultra-conservative, when, as you know we are the progressives. We are the future of white people, and we are the good guys.




Towards a One-World Order of Eekwality Where White Males Have No Power to Oppress the Riff-Raff

Those who doubt that the West is slowly being forced into a one-world order [1] of “no sovereignty,” “no borders” and “ethnicity doesn’t matter” need to read this essay.

Whites will soon belong to a global “melting pot.” In other words, they’ll be part of a international “soup” which has no regard for race, ability, or heritage.

In this new global order, borders and local decision-making will vanish. Every decision will be made at the international level, with or without treaties. No country will make its own decisions in its own interests. Even White leaders will be fooled into embracing the new order.

The one-world order’s program will be Marxism-which-isn’t-called-Marxism. But regardless of what the program is called, every human will be “equal” to the next one. Yes, that Really, Really Evil culture, known as Western Culture, will finally take a backseat to Black, Brown, Jewish and feminist culture. It’ll be fun, unless you’re a White male [and just for the record, White males gave the world to mankind – not that we expect a thank-you, since one isn’t coming]:


[1] do we have to remind readers that this “one-world” order is a.k.a. the New World Order and especially the Jew World Order since Jews have been at the forefront of the wreck-Western-culture movement?


H.R. 1415, introduced by New York anti-gun liberal Carolyn McCarthy (D), authorizes nearly $1 billion to the states to vastly expand upon the unconstitutional gun laws already on the books.

(McCarthy, whose husband was killed by a lunatic who attacked dozens of unarmed commuters on a Long Island train, ran for Congress on a campaign to ban guns.)

McCarthy and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) first introduced this bill in 2002 after a tragic shooting at a Long Island Catholic church. We have come to expect that people like McCarthy and Schumer will always try to exploit tragedy for political gain.

What is surprising, however, is how close this bill is to becoming law under congressional leadership that claims to be pro-gun. It already passed the House once, in October of 2002, but was killed in the senate when GOA teamed up with former Sen. Bob Smith (R-NH) to block the bill.

Now it’s back. H.R. 1415 passed out of the House Crime Subcommittee in May, and is slated to come before the full Judiciary Committee in September.

There are many good pro-gun members on the committee who are being fed misinformation. They’re being told that this is a harmless bill that will simply make the Brady law work more efficiently.

H.R. 1415 is anything but harmless. The billion dollars will be used to computerize and make available to the federal government millions of state records that could include state tax returns, employment records, library records (we’ve already seen how these have been deemed relevant to terrorism investigations), DMV, hospital, mental health and some misdemeanor records — all in the name of making sure you’re not prohibited from owning a gun.

In all, this bill allows for an enormous data dump from the states to the federal government, at the same time laying the infrastructure for even more gun control in the future.

No wonder this bill has leading anti-gunners in Congress frothing at the mouth. The sponsor of the bill, as noted, is one of the most virulent anti-gunners in the entire Congress.



An Environmental Disaster Emerges on Lebanon Coast

Clean up of the fuel oil spilled by an Israeli air strike has barely begun. Experts are calling it the worst environmental disaster ever in the eastern Mediterranean. Health effects of the spill could be dire. Thousands of families on the Lebanese coast depend on fishing for their primary food supply, but surviving fish may contain hydrocarbons and other carcinogens.

Wal-Mart asks for, and receives, permission to join homosexual marriage group

Wal-Mart comes out of the closet

Dear X,

Wal-Mart, the largest retailer in the world, has asked for and received permission to join the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. The NGLCC is a leading promoter of homosexual marriage.

Although Wal-Mart has never excluded homosexuals from being employees, customers, or suppliers, the company wanted to be more closely identified with promoting the homosexual agenda. Wal-Mart is now a “corporate member” of the NGLCC, putting their approval on the NGLCC’s efforts to abolish the definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. A Wal-Mart vice president will serve as an advisor to the NGLCC, helping them promote homosexual marriage.

Wal-Mart agreed to give $25,000 to the NGLCC and to pay for two conferences scheduled by NGLCC. Also, Wal-Mart will give homosexual-owned businesses special treatment when making purchases. Companies not owned by homosexuals will be moved down the list.

NGLCC called Wal-Mart’s action “part of the company’s ongoing commitment to advancing diversity (homosexuality) among all of its associate, supplier and customer bases.”

Wal-Mart is offering the same kind of support for homosexual marriage which Ford Motor Company has been giving to homosexual groups for years.

Sickening Government Arrogance in New Orleans
Posted by Thomas DiLorenzo at 07:18 PM

On a trip to New Orleans a couple of weeks ago I was pleasantly surprised to see that the French Quarter looked about the same as it did twenty years ago. It wasn’t devastated by Katrina like other parts of the city were. But I also saw miles and miles of devastation. It’s very creepy to see large, middle class housing developments with all the window and doors missing, grass three feet high, and no signs of life except for a few tiny FEMA trailers where the few remaining residents live. Those were the middle class areas; the lower-income areas are even worse.

So what does the government do today, the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina? Lie, lie, lie, of course, about all of its “heroic” efforts to rebuild the city. The most outrageous act, however, is how the government spent huge sums to renovate the damn stupid superdome. Why? Because it will be on TV come football season, and the bureaucrats can use that sight to brag, brag, brag about how they’ve reconstructed New Orleans (again). Meanwhile, the murder rate is the same as it was before the hurricane despite the fact that the population is no more than a fourth of what it was a year ago, and the Army Corps of Engineers dike is still so dubious that very little rebuilding is going on.

One bright spot: The average citizen of New Orleans has learned to hate and despise all levels of government. I was told that Mardi Gras floats were filled with people passing out EMPTY water bottles and condoms with big holes in them with “FEMA” Written on them. The most popular t-shirt there is one that says “FEMA Evacuation Plan: Run Motherf _ _ _ _ r Run.” I bought one, of course.




By Mike Blair

The military continues to say very little about the apprehension of a sailor who has been accused of selling highly classified information from a U.S. nuclear attack submarine to unspecified countries. A Navy source in Norfolk, Va., where accused spy Petty Officer Third Class Ariel J. Weinmann is being held, told American Free Press that it is one of the worst cases of espionage in U.S. history.

While Russia has been mentioned as one of the countries involved in the ring, there have also been reports that top secrets were handed to Israel.

At first, press reports cited Russia as being the only country to receive top-secret files that Weinmann allegedly stole from the nuclear attack submarine, the SSN-706 Albuquerque. However, the Saudi Arabian newspaper, Al- Watah, reported on Aug. 8 that sources close to the investigation said Israel did receive stolen secrets.

Since then, Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) officials have categorically denied reports that Israel was given the computer secrets.

Weinmann’s father, Robert, told Associated Press that Weinmann is not Jewish. He said his family’s heritage is German.

Al-Watah reports that Weinmann’s betrayal is the biggest spy case since Jonathan Pollard, a civilian intelligence analyst caught in 1985 providing secrets to Israel.

Pollard was convicted and is currently in prison for life despite several attempts by the Israeli government to free him.

Weinmann faces court-martial and possible life in prison. He allegedly deserted from the U.S. submarine on July 3, 2005, and was arrested last March 26 by U.S. Customs officials at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Some $4,000 was found on him in $100 bills.

Investigators also found computer storage devices, computer discs and a notebook that contained information that reportedly prompted federal agents to inspect the computerized records, from which they discovered top secret information from the submarine.

Investigators kept the case under close wraps until Weinmann appeared before a hearing July 25 at the Norfolk base. He has been charged with desertion, larceny, destroying U.S. military property, failure to obey orders or regulations and espionage.

The Navy report alleges that, while “serving at or near Bahrain, Mexico, and Austria,” Weinmann engaged in espionage “with intent or reason to believe it would be used to the injury of the United States or to the advantage of a foreign nation, [attempted] to communicate, deliver or transmit classified confidential and secret information relating to the national defense, to a representative, officer, agent or employee of a foreign government.”


Another Spy Story Suppressed to Save Israel

By Curt Maynard

Well guess what reader, the United States government has done it again, they’ve hidden another Jewish spy from the American public, but this time the cats out of the bag, someone leaked the details and now we find that another Jewish American, this time a Navy Petty Officer by the name of Ariel J. Weinmann has been arrested for passing along Top Secret information related to National Security to the Israeli government.

In Weinmann’s case, one can bet the information he stole was of a highly classified nature, you see Weinmann was stationed on an American nuclear submarine, the USS Albuquerque. Despite this, Kate Wiltrout, of theVirginian-Pilot reports:

The Navy originally refused to release basic information about the Weinmann case – including the dates of his Article 32, or preliminary hearing – but reversed course after The Virginian-Pilot revealed Weinmann’s confinement, and the secrecy with which it was being handled.[1]

Many people reading this will automatically assume that the Navy was keeping the case mum so as not to let the Israeli’s know they had caught Weinmann, but this isn’t the case, the Israeli’s probably knew before the Navy that Weinmann had been arrested, the Navy was keeping the case quiet in an effort to keep the American people in the dark, just as the United States government did with more than one hundred and fifty Israeli’s after they had been arrested for espionage just after 9-11, and the five Israeli’s that were arrested on 9-11 as a result of being witnessed by several people laughing while filming the impact of the airliners into the twin towers and clapping one another on the back in a congratulatory manner. The Navy buried Weimann’s case in the hope that the American people would never find out about him and what he did, just as the government did with Asher Karni, an Israeli Jew arrested at Denver International Airport on January 2, 2004 for having sold [past tense] more than sixty nuclear weapon detonators to Pakistan, a country populated by more than three hundred million Muslims, who generally don’t like the United States and where the name “Osama,” is the most popular name for a newborn male child. There are dozens of cases just like these; that have occurred in this country recently, the common denominator is that they all involve ethnic Jews. Another case is that of American citizen, Yehuda Abraham, a New York City Jeweler and Orthodox Jew, who was arrested in 2003 for having sold FBI agents posing as Al Qeada operatives Russian made, shoulder launched, surface to air missiles, with the understanding that they’d be used against Americans on domestic flights. Ever heard of any of these people? Surprise, the fact that you haven’t doesn’t mean they aren’t real people and they weren’t arrested for the above crimes, they are all quite real and they are all quite guilty.

The other day I emailed an article about Weinmann to an acquaintance who replied that the case probably wasn’t that big of a deal based upon the fact that the media wasn’t reporting it. Besides, the fool wrote back, how much classified information would a Petty Officer have access to? I then quickly typed up another missive and sent it back to the miscreant, pointing out that there was a case involving an Army Specialist a few years ago in which the young man was arrested and tried for treason after he had passed along completely useless and antiquated information on the M1 Abrams battle tank. The information he passed along was information that could have been gathered on the Internet, this is not to mitigate what he did, he passed this information on to FBI agents posing as Al Qaeda operatives, thus he committed treason and I’d be the first to say he should be held responsible. His name is Ryan G. Anderson and he sits in a Military prison today with a life sentence – just where a traitor should be. Anderson was a Specialist, a glorified private really, who did not have access to anything spectacular – Weinmann was a Petty Officer stationed on a fast attack submarine that stole classified information that was directly related to American national security – do you see the difference?

When Anderson was arrested the entire media apparatus went immediately to work – before the end of the day his face had been splashed across every television screen in America a dozen times, every newspaper had his face on the front page the next day – in short – nobody was trying to cover up Anderson’s crime, not like they are with Weinmann. What’s the difference?

Another common denominator associated with people arrested for spying on behalf of Israel is that Israel is almost never mentioned by name; it is always referred to as a “foreign government.” The media does this so as to report whatever story may be in the works but at the same time to protect that little Middle Eastern provocateur from exposure – how can you convince Americans in the hundreds of millions that their hard earned tax dollars should be sent overseas to bolster the Zionist state if everyone knows that Israel is an enemy, not an ally. As an example of the media predilection, please note the following Associated Press blurb from an article entitled “Sailor Faces Spy Charges”:

Officials accuse Weinmann of passing classified information to a foreign government representative in Austria and again in Mexico.[2]

The reason the government attempted to cover up Weinmann’s arrest and the media attempts to suppress the fact that the “foreign government representative,” was an Israeli are the same – to prevent Americans from learning the extent of the Jewish nation’s intrigues against the United States and to keep the money rolling into Israel as if everything were A-okay.

Awake America, they are lying to you!

And Pigs Fly: Daddy says spy son isn’t Jewish

By Curt Maynard

Daddy says Ariel’s not a Jew, so therefore it must be true; at least that’s how Time Magazine sees it [Or more likely, wants you and I to see it]. Of course Time inc. is a “Jewish company,” at least according to the Jewish journalist Michael Wolfe, who wrote an article several years ago, attesting to this fact.[1] Time Magazine, in an article entitled “Did the Sailor go Overboard,” quoted Ariel Weinmann’s father Robert as saying, “his son is not Jewish,” which is a joke really. Perhaps Mr. Weinmann, or Time’s editors were being cryptic; perhaps his son isn’t a “practicing Jew,” which by the way, most Jewish Americans aren’t, most ethnic Jews in the United States do not attend synagogue, nor do they hold any strong religious views, most Jews are secularists, not religious.[2] But I assure you that Ariel Weinmann is an ethnic Jew, I guarantee it, because Weinmann is NOT a named derived from Germanic origins, but it is listed thousands of times on Jewish surname databases like JewishGen: The Home of Jewish Genealogy.[3] The name Ariel is absolutely Jewish, i.e. Ariel Sharon – duh, it means “Lion of God,” in Hebrew[4] and is often used as another name for Jerusalem, but it is not, nor has it ever been, commonly used by Christians. It is however listed on a database that notes, “The names listed here are commonly used by Jews.”[5]

An extensive search on several non-Jewish surname databases revealed to this writer that the surname “Weinmann,” is not derived from German, the closest Germanic surname to Weinmann in these databases is “Weiman,” of which the Germanic etymology is associated with one who makes and/or produces wine.[6] During WWI many German-Americans “Anglicized,” their names in an effort stave off persecution, but most Weiman’s that changed their names, changed it to “Wyman,” not Weinmann, which would have been pointless, as it still revealed the Germanic origins of the name, so why bother? No dear reader, don’t be fooled, Ariel Weinmann is as Jewish as a kosher pickle at a New York Bar Mitzvah.

It’s going to take more than Time Magazine’s latest tomfoolery to get away with this bit of chicanery – even the typical self-absorbed, MTV watching moron is unlikely to swallow this BS whole. Perhaps this is why the Virginia Pilot’s Kate Wiltrout left Robert Weinmann’s statement regarding the idea that his son isn’t Jewish out of her article published a day after the Time disinformation piece entitled “Father dismisses ‘speculation’ on espionage charges against sailor,” but at the same time managed to keep the enigmatic insinuation that perhaps the stories floating around on the blogosphere, like mine entitled “Another Spy Story Suppressed to Save Israel,” are based solely on “speculation.”[7] Wiltrout quotes Mr. Weinmann as saying:

“People have absolutely no clue what they’re talking about,” Robert Weinmann, Ariel’s father, said in an telephone interview on Wednesday from Salem, Ore… “Everything is speculation,” he said. “Don’t get me wrong, this thing is extremely serious. … This whole thing is devastating. It’s beyond comprehension.”[8]

Please note dear reader that Ms. Wiltrout does NOT dredge up the most unlikely idea that Ariel Weinmann is not Jewish, like Time Magazine’s moronic [or complicit] Douglas Waller, the author of the aforementioned article “Did the Sailor go Overboard,” despite the fact that Waller gave her an opening, or an opportunity to quote the lies of an allegedly reputable journalist working for an allegedly reputable news magazine.
Wake up America! They’re lying to you!

Lamont is one of those phony antiwar Democrats: against Republican wars, but not willing to call for an end to them. (The real antiwar public figures are the few, the proud, the Ron Pauls: those who opposed Clinton’s wars and Bush’s.) Still, I can’t help but root against Commissar Joe. He is a warmonger, police statist, and welfarist of the worst sort. Lamont, on the other hand, is a scion of the Eastern Establishment (his great grandfather was Thomas P. Lamont, J.P. Morgan’s partner), which means he is probably not as crazy as the neocons.

      A scientist’s plea for Christian environmentalism.

      Apocalypse Now

      by Edward O. Wilson

      The following is a letter from the eminent Harvard biologist Edward O. Wilson, winner of the National Medal of Science and two Pulitzer Prizes, to an imagined Southern Baptist pastor–and the larger evangelical community.

      Dear Pastor,

      We have not met, yet I feel I know you well enough to call you a friend. First of all, we grew up in the same faith. As a boy, I, too, answered the altar call; I went under the water. Although I no longer belong to that faith, I am confident that, if we met and spoke privately of our deepest beliefs, it would be in a spirit of mutual respect and goodwill. I know we share many precepts of moral behavior. Perhaps it also matters that we are both Americans and, insofar as it might still affect civility and good manners, we are both Southerners.

      I write to you now for your counsel and help. Of course, in doing so, I see no way to avoid the fundamental differences in our worldviews. You are a strict interpreter of Christian Holy Scripture; I am a secular humanist. You believe that each person’s soul is immortal, making this planet a waystation to a second, eternal life; I think heaven and hell are what we create for ourselves, on this planet. For you, the belief in God made flesh to save mankind; for me, the belief in Promethean fire seized to set men free. You have found your final truth; I am still searching. You may be wrong; I may be wrong. We both may be partly right.

      Do these differences in worldview separate us in all things? They do not. You and I and every other human being strive for the same imperatives of security, freedom of choice, personal dignity, and a cause to believe in that is larger than ourselves. Let us see, then, if we can meet on the near side of metaphysics in order to deal with the real world we share. You have the power to help solve a great problem about which I care deeply. I hope you have the same concern. I suggest that we set aside our differences in order to save the Creation. The defense of living nature is a universal value. It doesn’t rise from, nor does it promote, any religious or ideological dogma. Rather, it serves without discrimination the interests of all humanity. Pastor, we need your help. The Creation–living nature–is in deep trouble.

      Scientists estimate that, if habitat-conversion and other destructive human activities continue at their present rates, half the species of plants and animals on earth could be either gone or at least fated for early extinction by the end of the century. Illustration by David CowlesThe ongoing extinction rate is calculated in the most conservative estimates to be about 100 times above that prevailing before humans appeared on earth, and it is expected to rise to at least 1,000 times greater (or more) in the next few decades. If this rise continues unabated, the cost to humanity–in wealth, environmental security, and quality of life–will be catastrophic.

      Surely we can agree that each species, however inconspicuous and humble it may seem to us at this moment, is a masterpiece of biology and well worth saving. Each species possesses a unique combination of genetic traits that fits it more or less precisely to a particular part of the environment. Prudence alone dictates that we act quickly to prevent the extinction of species and, with it, the pauperization of earth’s ecosystems.

      With all the troubles that humanity faces, why should we care about the condition of living nature? Homo sapiens is a species confined to an extremely small niche. True, our minds soar out to the edges of the universe and contract inward to subatomic particles–the two extremes encompassing 30 powers of ten in space. In this respect, our intellects are godlike. But, let’s face it, our bodies stay trapped inside a proportionately microscopic envelope of physical constraints. Earth provides a self-regulating bubble that sustains us indefinitely without any thought or contrivance of our own. This protective shield is the biosphere, the totality of life, creator of all air, cleanser of all water, manager of all soil–but is itself a fragile membrane that barely clings to the face of the planet. We depend upon its razor-thin health for every moment of our lives. We belong in the biosphere, we were born here as species, we are closely suited to its exacting conditions–and not all conditions, either, but just those in a few of the climatic regimes that exist upon some of the land. Environmental damage can be defined as any change that alters our surroundings in a direction contrary to humanity’s inborn physical and emotional needs. We must be careful with the environment upon which our lives ultimately depend.

      In destroying the biosphere, we are destroying unimaginably vast sources of scientific information and biological wealth. Opportunity costs, which will be better understood by our descendants than by ourselves, will be staggering. Gone forever will be undiscovered medicines, crops, timber, fibers, soil-restoring vegetation, petroleum substitutes, and other products and amenities. Critics of environmentalism forget, if they ever knew, how the rosy periwinkle of Madagascar provided the alkaloids that cure most cases of Hodgkin’s disease and acute childhood leukemia; how a substance from an obscure Norwegian fungus made possible the organ transplant industry; how a chemical from the saliva of leeches yielded a solvent that prevents blood clots during and after surgery; and so on through the pharmacopoeia that has stretched from the herbal medicines of Stone Age shamans to the magic-bullet cures of present-day biomedical science.

      These are just a few examples of what could be lost if Homo sapiens pursue our current course of environmental destruction. Earth is a laboratory wherein nature–God, if you prefer, pastor–has laid before us the results of countless experiments. We damage her at our own peril.

      You may well ask at this point, Why me? Simply because religion and science are the two most powerful forces in the world today, and especially in the United States. If religion and science could be united on the common ground of biological conservation, the problem might soon be solved.

      It may seem far-fetched for a secular scientist to propose an alliance between science and religion. But the fact is that environmental activists cannot succeed without you and your followers as allies. The political process in American democracy, with rare exceptions, does not start at the top and work its way down to the voting masses. It proceeds in the opposite direction. Political leaders are compelled to calculate as precisely as they can what it will take to win the next election. The United States is an intensely religious nation. It is overwhelmingly Judeo-Christian, with a powerful undercurrent of evangelism. We secularists must face reality. The National Association of Evangelicals has 30 million members; the three leading American humanist organizations combined have, at best, a few thousand. Those who, for religious reasons, believe in saving the Creation, have the strength to do so through the political process; acting alone, secular environmentalists do not. An alliance between science and religion, forged in an atmosphere of mutual respect, may be the only way to protect life on earth, including, in the end, our own.

      Yes, the gulf separating our worldviews is wide. The Abrahamic religions–Judaism, Christianity, and Islam–believe that the universe was constructed to be relevant to humanity. The discoveries of science, in unintended opposition, have reduced earth to an infinitesimal speck within an immensity of space unrelated to human destiny. The Abrahamic religions envisage a supreme ruler who, while existing outside the material universe, nevertheless oversees an agenda for each and every one of our immortal souls. Science can find no evidence of an agenda other than that fashioned by the complex interaction of genes and environment within parallel evolving cultures. Religious creation stories have a divinely engineered beginning and a divinely ordained ending. According to science, in contrast, humans descended from apish ancestors; our origin was basically no different from that of other animals, played out over geological time through a tortuous route of mutation and environmentally driven natural selection. In addition, all mainstream religious belief, whether fundamentalist or liberal, is predicated upon the assumption that humanity is not alone, and we are here for a life and purpose beyond our earthly existence. Science says that, as far as verifiable evidence tells, we are alone, and what significance we have is therefore of our own making. This is the heart of the agonizing conflict between science and religion that has persisted for the past 500 years.

      I do not see how the difference in worldview between these two great productions of human striving can be closed. But, for the purposes of saving the Creation, I am not sure that it needs to be. To make the point in good gospel manner, let me tell the story of a young man, newly trained for the ministry and so fixed in his Christian faith that he referred all questions of morality to readings from the Bible. When he visited the Atlantic rainforest of Brazil, he saw the manifest hand of God, and in his notebook he wrote, “It is not possible to give an adequate idea of the higher feelings of wonder, admiration, and devotion which fill and elevate the mind.” That was Charles Darwin in 1832, early into the voyage of the HMS Beagle, before he had given any thought to evolution. And here is Darwin, concluding On the Origin of Species in 1859, having first abandoned Christian dogma and then, with his newfound intellectual freedom, formulated the theory of evolution by natural selection: “There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.” Darwin’s reverence for life remained the same as he crossed the seismic divide that separated his religious phase and his scientific one. And so it can be for the divide that, today, separates mainstream religion and scientific humanism. And that separates you and me.

      Indeed, despite all that divides science from religion, there is good reason to hope that an alliance on environmental issues is possible. The spiritual reach of evangelical Christianity is nowadays increasingly extended to the environment. While the Old Testament God commands humanity to take dominion over the earth, the decree is not (as one evangelical leader recently affirmed) an excuse to trash the planet. The dominant theme in scripture as interpreted by many evangelicals is instead stewardship. Organizations like the Green Cross and the Evangelical Environmental Network (the latter a coalition of evangelical Christian agencies and institutions) are expanding their magisterium to include conservation–in religious terms, protection of the living Creation.

      This evangelical interest in the environment is part of a worldwide trend among religions. In the United States, the umbrella National Religious Partnership for the Environment works with evangelical groups and other prominent organizations, including the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the National Council of Churches of Christ, and the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life. In 2001, the Archbishop of Canterbury urged that “it may not be time to build an Ark like Noah, but it is high time to take better care of God’s creation.” Three years earlier, Bartholomew I, Patriarch of the Greek Orthodox Church, had gone further: “For humans to cause species to become extinct and to destroy the biological diversity of God’s creation … these are sins.” He and Pope John Paul II later issued a “Common Declaration” that “God has not abandoned the world. It is His will that His Design and our hope for it will be realized through our co-operation in restoring its original harmony. In our own time we are witnessing a growth of an ecological awareness which needs to be encouraged, so that it will lead to practical programs and initiatives.” Unfortunately, a corresponding magnitude of engagement has not yet occurred in Islam or the Eastern religions.

      Every great religion offers mercy and charity to the poor. The poor of the world, of whom nearly a billion exist in the “poverty trap” of absolute destitution, are concentrated in the developing countries–the home of 80 percent of the world’s population and most of Earth’s biodiversity. The solution to the problems of both depends on the recognition that each depends on the other. The desperately poor have little chance to improve their lives in a devastated environment. Conversely, natural environments, where most of the Creation hangs on, cannot survive the press of land-hungry people who have nowhere else to go.

      To be sure, some leaders of the religious right are reluctant to support biological conservation, an opposition sufficient to create a wedge within the evangelical movement. They may be partly afraid of paganism, by which worship of nature supplants worship of God. More realistically and importantly, opposition rises from the perceived association of environmental activism with the political left. For decades, conservatives have defined environmentalism as a movement bent on strangling the United States with regulations and bureaucratic power. This canard has dogged the U.S. environmental movement and helped keep it off the agenda of the past two presidential campaigns.

      Finally, however, opinion may be changing. The mostly evangelical religious right, which, along with big business, has been the decisive source of power in the Republican Party, has begun to move care of the Creation back into the mainstream of conservative discourse. The opportunity exists to make the environment a universal concern and to render it politically nonpartisan.

      Still, for all the positive signs, I remain puzzled that so many religious leaders have hesitated to make protection of the Creation an important part of their magisterium. Pastor, help me understand: Do they believe that human-centered ethics and preparation for the afterlife are the only things that matter? Do they believe that the Second Coming is imminent and that, therefore, the condition of the planet is of little consequence? These and other similar doctrines are not gospels of hope and compassion. They are gospels of cruelty and despair.

      You and I are both humanists in the broadest sense: Human welfare is at the center of our thought. So forget our disagreements, I say, and let us meet on common ground. That might not be as difficult as it first seems. When you think about it, our metaphysical differences have remarkably little effect on the conduct of our separate lives. My guess is that you and I are about equally ethical, patriotic, and altruistic. We are products of a civilization that rose from both religion and the science-based Enlightenment. We would gladly serve on the same jury, fight the same wars, and sanctify human life with the same intensity. Surely we also share a love of the Creation–and an understanding that, however the tensions play out between our opposing worldviews, however science and religion wax and wane in the minds of men, there remains the earthborn yet transcendental obligation we are both morally bound to share.

      Warmly and respectfully,
      Edward O. Wilson

      New World Order Rising?
      Thoughts on the UN World Summit on Sustainable Development

      by Steven Yates

      Having begun on August 26 and continuing on through September 4, the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) in Johannesburg, South Africa is what may be the largest confab the United Nations has ever sponsored. WSSD commemorates the ten-year anniversary of the adoption of Agenda 21 at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil back in 1992. Over 100 world leaders, thousands of delegates, CEOs, representatives of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and other dignitaries and elites – over 20,000 people in all – have descended on the Sandton Convention Center in South Africa’s largest city. Moreover, as WSSD has approached the American public has been treated to a stready stream of new articles and so-called studies on how, if we do not change our ways and adopt “sustainable” behaviors and patterns of economic growth, environmental disaster (global warming, deforestation, extinction of species, etc.) is right around the corner. So the time has come to stop talking about Agenda 21 and take action.

      What, exactly, is Agenda 21?

      During the early 1990s a new set of terms began creeping into our lexicon; in addition to sustainable development or sustainable communities they included our global village, biodiversity, smart growth, habitats, urban boundaries, wildlife conservation zones, open space areas and many others. Many of the new terms seemed to involve local issues involving urban and suburban planning in one way or another; others (such as lifelong learning) were turning up in edu-speak; others (e.g., public-private partnerships) spilled over into business and still others (e.g., workforce development) seemed to cut across more than one area. Few Americans realized that the source of the new vocabulary words was the UN. Most have never heard of Agenda 21. They certainly aren’t going to learn of it from Dan Rather. This is a shame, because after the Bible and the Koran, Agenda 21 may be the most influential document in the world right now. It is definitely in the top five.

      Agenda 21 is the bible of the sustainable development movement. A horribly written, longwinded tract consisting of 40 chapters of various lengths covering everything from land, water and waste management to urban planning to biotechnology, it purports to offer a comprehensive new paradigm for life on planet Earth. The basic idea behind sustainable development was spelled out back in 1987 by the little-known Brundtland Commission. The Bruntland Commission definition: “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” This innocent sounding phrase came to carry with it the implication that there are too many people living and working in an environment of finite resources to permit “unsustainable” economic freedoms. Behind the idea of sustainable development is the idea that we have a choice: adopt “voluntary” central planning (with the UN at the helm) to integrate economics and ecology within a globalist perspective or face ecological disaster a few decades down the pike. The United States has been a thorn in the UN’s side all along. Although President Bush has committed billions to every area the UN wants and committed the U.S. to involvement in 14 “partnerships,” Uncle Sam still doesn’t give the UN as much money as the globalist bureaucrats want, and opposes such things as global taxation and the erosion of national sovereignty.

      “Three years earlier, Bartholomew I, Patriarch of the Greek Orthodox Church, had gone further: “For humans to cause species to become extinct and to destroy the biological diversity of God’s creation … these are sins.””

      And yet so many of them say that racial preservation (racism) is a sin.
