Alberto Web Site Back Up!

Alberto Rivera's ministry (under the leadership of his wife, Nuri) is back in business on the web. It was shut down for several years by mysterious circumstances, but now it's back and it looks rather professional. The address is:

Obama Toss Preacher to Wolves

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, campaigning Tuesday in Winston-Salem N.C., denounced the recent provocative statements made by his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. "I am outraged by the comments that were made and saddened by the spectacle that we saw yesterday," Obama said. Apparently the "Government creating AIDS conspiracy" and "America is terrorist" remarks made by Wright at recent public appearances made Obama cave in to demands that he sacrifice his minister on the alter of Political Correctness. Obama had earlier stuck by his minister of 20 years, calling him "like family". But even family can get sacrificed, especially in the last days! See Chick's THE LAST GENERATION.

1/2 the Mormon Compound Teenage Girls Abused

A recent examination of the 400+ children taken from the Fundamentalist Mormon compound reveal half the teenage girls (age 14 to 17) have been raped (by legal standards). Texas law states girls 17 and younger cannot legally consent to sex with adults. The Mormons from the compound said earlier that there was only one or two 17-year-olds that were mothers, but that story has quickly changed as it appears the girls were being bred for early breeding. See Chick's THE ENCHANTER.

Rev. Wright Debate Revived

Just when he was beginning to fade away, Rev. Wright appears at the National Press Club and revives the controversy surrounding his inflammatory racial remarks. He repeated his beliefs that the US governments developed and released AIDS to wipe out blacks, and also pumped illegal drugs into poor neighborhoods to keep blacks down. (Other blacks claim the government's WAR ON DRUGS was an attempt to keep blacks down-- the two conspiracies contradict each other, haw-haw!) Wright also suggested Obamma only denounced him because Obamma is a politicians and he was telling his audience what they wanted to hear. Finally, Write also said the criticism of his sermons was "and attack on the black Church." (So now the Media is also racist.) See Chick's WHO IS ALLAH?

Religious Tag Fails Voice Vote

The "I Believe" car tag failed in a voice vote in Florida today. The tag would have a cross and stained glass window on it, with the slogan "I Believe". It would have helped raise extra funds for schools. It was given a voice vote so politicians who voted against it wouldn't have a paper trail and could still claim they supported it during election time. Pretty sly... "I believe" they DON'T believe!

Don't Go In The Basement!

AMSTETTEN, Austria - A man has confessed to imprisoning his daughter for 24 years in a windowless cell with a soundproofed door and fathering seven children with her. The 42-year-old daughter was raped at age 11, and then locked away by her father/rapist at age 18. The mother had no idea what her 73-year-old husband had been doing for nearly a quarter of a century. She was given a letter from the daughter saying she had run off to join a religious cult! Half of the children lived with grandparents, the other half were imprisoned in the basement with the daughter. See Chick's LISA.

Obamma's Preacher Explains Racist Remarks

Rev. Jeremiah Wright appears on Bill Moyer's PBS show to give his spin on his racist sermons. He feels he's being picked on unfairly, and while he believe in racist conspiracy theories (e.g., the government flooded black neighborhoods with drugs to keep African Americans oppressed), he believes the real racists are those who are showing segments of his sermons and trying to derail Obamma's campaign. Moyers is an outspoken supporter of the Democrats and Obamma, but it is doubtful the interview will help put the controversy to rest.

Jewish American Confesses to Spying to Israel

A Jewish American contractor, Ben-ami Kadish, was charged in U.S. District Court in Manhattan with four counts of conspiracy, including allegations that he disclosed U.S. national defense documents to Israel and acted as an agent of the Israeli government.

Prosecutors say Kadish, a U.S. citizen who worked at an Army base in New Jersey, took home classified documents for six years and let the Israeli photograph them in his basement. Those documents included information about nuclear weapons, a modified version of an F-15 fighter jet, and the U.S. Patriot missile air defense system. Kadish's apparent motivation was to help Israel, prosecutors said.

Israel grants American Jews automatic citizenship in their country. Some say this is done to split their loyalty and get them to pressure American politicians for billions in Israeli aid, defend Israel publically against claims of human rights violations, and, in extreme cases like these, spy for what they consider their ethnic and religious homeland. Kadish claims he didn't accept money for becoming a traitor, but only gifts and free meals. Israel won't acknowledge they spy on the US, their closest alley, but many of the secrets that are stolen from the US wind up being resold by Israel to future adversaries like China. Chick defends Israel in all things, but he makes an angry complaint about how the Vatican does the same thing when they split the loyalties of American Catholics. See ARE ROMAN CATHOLICS CHRISTIAN?

Judge Orders DNA tests on Mormon Kids

The judge presiding in the child custody case of over 400 children taken from a fundy Mormon compound ruled that the children need DNA testing to sort out just who the parents really are. The child welfare officers have been getting evasive and conflicting answers. Law enforcement officers raided the Yearning For Zion Ranch on April 3. The raid was prompted by calls made to a family violence shelter, purportedly by a 16-year-old girl who said her 50-year-old husband beat and raped her. That girl has never been identified. Meanwhile, one of the polygamist men said that "many of us perhaps were not even aware of such a law (making it illegal for adult men to have sex with girls under age 18). And we do reconsider, yes. We teach our children to obey the law." (While you're at it, you might also teach them to obey the law that makes it illegal to have more than one wife, bud!)

Former Israel Prime Minister Credits 9/11 with Helping His Side

Benjamin Netanyaho, the former minister of Israel, credits the terrorists attacks on the Pentagon and World Trade Centers as helping Israel win favor in the west. The comment has drawn criticism from those opposed to the war and strong handed Israeli tactics against the Palestinians. It also played into the hands of those wanting to revive the controversy over the five Israeli citizens who filmed themselves celebrating the attack as the towers burned behind them in the background. (They were arrested and later released.) See Chick's LOVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

Pope Prepares To Leave. Gives Mass on Ground Zero

The Pope gives mass at Yankee Stadium, bringing to an end his visit to the USA. It was said to be a somber affair, cast in the shadow of the 9/11 attacks. See Chick's WHO CARES?

Former President Visits Terrorist Organization

Former President Jimmy Carter makes a controversial visit with leaders of Hamas. The muslim fundementalist political group is considered a terrorist organization for wanting to "wipe Israel off the map". In the latest debate, Obamma was asked if he would condemn Carter's meeting with the terrorists, and he refused. (Carter back's Obamma's run for President.) Meanwhile, Humas political advisor, Ahmed Yousef, said Hamas "likes Obamma and wants him to win" in the upcoming Presidential election. See Chick's MEN OF PEACE?

Obamma Infers Religion is "crutch"

Senator Obamma came under fire for remarks he made early Saturday, suggesting people clung to religion out of ignorance and spite. Clinton's campaign was quick to jump on the remarks saying they reveal Obamma is arrogant, and did everything they could to make sure the public was aware of him. Obamma told thw audience of supporters that people in small towns were bitter about the economy and "they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations." The comments also undermine Obamma's image as true Christian, an image that took another hit lately when his minister's sermons were transcribed, showing racist and bigoted attitudes towards Jews and whites. See Chick's THE GREAT ONE.

Authorities still have not found the 16 year-old girl who sparked the investigation. She was force to marry a man three times her age to become his 7th wife, and has already had one child by him. She told authorities via phone that he beat her and broke her ribs. For more info, see news article. Also, see Chick's THE ENCHANTER.

Charlton Heston Dies

Charlton Heston, the actor that played Moses and Ben-Hur, has died at age 84. He was an accomplished actor and one of the few in Hollywood who dared speak out AGAINST left wing politics. He ended up becoming a president for the National Rifle Association and spoke out against race-based hiring practices. Heston wisely chose to express these politically incorrect views AFTER his career has peaked. Mel Gibson has had a much tougher time of it since the success of his Jesus movie. See Chick's PLAGUES (The Story of Moses).

It has Ben Stein involved, and other heavy hitters who seek to tap into the word of mouth buz that made PASSION OF THE CHRIST such a big money maker. See Chick's BIG DADDY.
