EVIL MEETS ON THE TARMAC
The Catholic Church and Satanism in the Vatican
that have accused the Vatican of being infiltrated by satanists, none has been
as widely noticed as the late Malachi
Martin. An expert on the Dead Sea Scrolls, he also wrote about
such widely diverse topics as exorcism, Church history and modern geopolitics.
None of his books have been so controversial — or so misunderstood or ignored
by the mainstream press — as his works that deal with this ominous and
From 1958 until 1964, Malachi
Martin served in Rome as a Jesuit priest, where he was a close associate of,
and carried out many sensitive missions for, the renowned Jesuit Cardinal
Augustin Bea and Popes John XXIII and Paul VI. Released afterwards from his
vows of poverty and obedience at his own request (but still a priest), he
ultimately moved to New York and became a best-selling writer of fiction and
Martin had first made
explicit reference to a diabolic rite held in Rome in his 1990 non-fiction
best-seller about geopolitics and the Vatican, The Keys of This Blood, in which he
Most frighteningly for
[Pope] John Paul [II], he had come up against the irremovable presence of a
malign strength in his own Vatican and in certain bishops’ chanceries. It was
what knowledgeable Churchmen called the ‘superforce.’ Rumors, always difficult
to verify, tied its installation to the beginning of Pope Paul VI’s reign in
1963. Indeed Paul had alluded somberly to ‘the smoke of Satan which has entered
the Sanctuary’. . . an oblique reference to an enthronement ceremony by
Satanists in the Vatican. Besides, the incidence of Satanic pedophilia — rites
and practices — was already documented among certain bishops and priests as
widely dispersed as Turin, in Italy, and South Carolina, in the United States.
The cultic acts of Satanic pedophilia are considered by professionals to be the
culmination of the Fallen Archangel’s rites.
Title: CASE FOR PREMEDITATION (INDICT
LAURA BUSH! )

unique headlight configuration proves
It was no “accident!”
Laura Welch Bush, driving east on Farm Road 868, was approaching the only
highway in town on a clear night with a bright moon. She lived only a couple of
miles away and had been through this particular intersection hundreds of times
in the years her family had lived in Midland, Texas. On her left Laura Bush could
see her boyfriend’s car approaching the intersection for the entire time he
turned off of Solomon Lane, where he lived, and onto the highway. She knew it
was her boyfriend’s car driving south, because of the unique headlight
configuration of his 1962 Corvair Sedan. Laura Bush knew her boyfriend, she
knew his home, and she knew his car--the headlights are low slung and a full
9-inches narrower than any other car on the road. The entire profile of the car
is small and easy to distinguish anytime, day or night.
Michael Dutton Douglas, 17, had driven only half a mile before America’s
Black Widow of the Night deliberately ran the stop sign at high speed, striking
the small car with such ferocity that her boyfriend was ejected from the car
and into the dirt. Laura Bush, “America’s First Murderess of the Land,” had
literally ripped a hole in her boyfriend’s neck. Michael lay there for eight
minutes staring at Laura and her once loving arms, while Laura stared back
wondering, “Is the head dead yet?” “No child left behind,” unless it is Michael
Dutton Douglas gasping in the dirt. To date, there has never been an
adjudication of this wanton murder, even though there is no Statute of
Limitations on murder. Laura and her girlfriend had conspired to murder Michael
Dutton Douglas and been laying-in-wait for his car.
INDICT LAURA BUSH!
A premeditated, child torture butcher--who perpetrated her act during the
commission of two other crimes--should not be permitted unsupervised access to
the President of the United States.
CONSCIOUSNESS OF GUILT
THE LIES OF LAURA BUSH
Laura Bush has spent a lifetime lying about deliberately murdering her
boyfriend with malice aforethought.
Laura’s Litany of Lies #1: Laura Bush for years insisted that she was not
driving. No, Laura, we have the police report.
Laura’s Litany of Lies #2: Laura Bush said that it was raining and slick.
No, Laura, the weather was dry and clear. We have the police report.
Laura’s Litany of Lies #3: Laura Bush said that her boyfriend was riding
in an open jeep. No, Laura, it was a 1962 Corvair Sedan. We have the police
Laura’s Litany of Lies #4: Laura Bush said that Michael Douglas was not
her boyfriend. No, Laura, the District Attorney said that Michael Dutton
Douglas was your boyfriend when he released the police report!
Laura’s Litany of Lies #5: Laura Bush said that she did not know who her
murder victim was until she got to the hospital. Michael Dutton Douglas’ father
was following his car and was on the scene seconds after the “accident.” Laura
Bush knew her boyfriend, she knew her boyfriend’s car, and she knew his father.
Laura’s Litany of Lies #6: Laura Bush said that she was sorry. While she
did stay home from school for several weeks, it certainly hasn’t kept her from
any of the class reunions! Was it murdering her boyfriend, or claiming to be
sorry, that made her The Perfect Wife?
HEARD IN MIDLAND
“Laura Bush thought that she was pregnant by her boyfriend Michael Dutton
Douglas. When she told him, instead of agreeing to marry her, Douglas had
instead broken up with her.” Perhaps she mulled over murder after reading this
article in the local paper
Laura Bush, Midland’s Emissary of Death, had the means, the opportunity,
AND the motive!

that routinely torture Iraqi prisoners are not subject to arrest or court

take disciplinary action. These contractors operate directly under Mossad

court martial have been made to be accomplises but are not the main culprits in

"During the first two weeks of [April], the American army committed war
crimes in Fallujah on a scale unprecedented for this war. . . . Some 600 Iraqis

When the uranium bullets, missiles, or bombs hit something or explode most of

This Is The Cost Of
Blair's 'Moral' War By John Pilger
March 13, 2003: This

[in the no-fly zones]... there's no evidence of civilian casualties."
The lie of this
statement would be breathtaking were it not routine.
In northern Kurdish
Iraq, I interviewed members of one family who had lost their grandfather, their
father and four brothers and sisters when a "coalition" aircraft
(British or American) dive-bombed them and the sheep they were tending. It was
open desert, a moonscape with not a sign of other life, let alone a military
installation. Amid the carcasses of blasted sheep were pieces of clothing and a
The attack was
investigated and verified by the chief United Nations representative in Iraq at
the time, Hans Von Sponeck, who drove there especially from Baghdad. His
findings are listed among dozens of similar attacks - on shepherds, farmers,
fishermen - in a document prepared by the United Nations Security Section.
At a windswept cemetery
near the town of Mosul, I caught sight of the shepherd's widow as she grieved
for her husband and four children. "I want to see the pilot who did
this," she shouted.
LAST week, [Week of
March 9th, 2003] "coalition" aircraft killed another six people in
the southern city of Basra. Nothing unusual there. When I was last in Basra, an
American missile killed six children when it "mistakenly" hit Al
Jumohria, a very poor section of Basra's residential area.
I walked down the
street where the missile had struck in the early hours; it had followed the
line of houses, destroying one after the other. I met the father of two
sisters, aged eight and 10, who were photographed by a local weddings
photographer, Nabil al-Jerani, shortly after the attack. Their bodies were
unlike the other four children, who were blown to bits, their limbs and flesh
in the overhead wires.
These two little girls
were left intact. In Nabil's photographs, they are in their nightdresses, one
with a bow in her hair, their bodies perfectly engraved in the rubble of their
homes, where they had been bombed to death, murdered, in their beds.

"We must make
clear to the Germans that the wrong for which their leaders are on trial is not
that they lost the war, but that they started it. And we must not allow

Tony Blair's efforts to straddle the divide between Europe and America will
become even more strained. With the swearing in of 18 judges, the International

The brand of democracy

Read "Death By Slow Burn"- How America Nukes Its Own Troops
What 'Support Our Troops' Really Means By Amy Worthington - The Idaho
experts estimate that in 1991 1000 metric tons of depleted uranium were left in
Iraq. Tens of thousands of troops were exposed to Depleted Uranium or DU, a
benign name for uranium-238, the waste product of nuclear reactors and weapons.
DU is a bad marriage between two unsavory partners: the nuclear industry, which
needed a home for nearly one billion tons of hazardous waste, and the U.S.
military that desired cheap and effective munitions. They created DU by molding
nuclear-waste tailings into bullets and bombs.
In addition to armour piercing anti-tank rounds, the U.S. is using A-10 strike
aircraft that use depleted uranium rounds. This shows a callous disregard
for not only innocent civilians for years to come but for U.S. and British
troops that are on the ground fighting.
These troops will be breathing in aerosol radioactive air. This radioactivity
is blowing all over Iraq as sure as the sandstorms blow there.
This is happening at a time when veterans
benefits are being slashed in order to send more foreign aid to Israel. The
government did a pretty good job covering up the gulf war
syndrome from 1991 but has failed to learn a lesson from it.
These international treaties on weapons such as depleted uranium are written
for a reason. They are written to prevent the cancers, birth defects and
mysterious illnesses associated with radiation poisoning.
Here is an excerpt from the book Depleted
Uranium, How the Pentagon Radiates Soldiers & Civilians with DU Weapons
How DU Shell Residues Poison Iraq, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia
During the last five years
I have been able to carry out extensive studies in Iraq. Their results produced
ample evidence to show that contact with DU ammunition has the following
consequences, especially for children:
• A considerable increase in infectious diseases caused by most severe
immunodeficiencies in a great part of the population;
• Frequent occurrence of massive herpes and zoster afflictions, also in
• AIDS-like syndromes;
• A hitherto unknown syndrome caused by renal and hepatic dysfunctions;
• Leukemia, aplastic anemia and malignant neoplasms;
• Congenital deformities caused by genetic defects, which are also to be found
The results of my studies show similarities to a clinical picture described
recently by the term of the so-called Gulf War Syndrome in American and British
soldiers and their children. The congenital deformities caused by genetic
defects in American and Iraqi children are identical.- Prof. Dr. Siegwart-Horst
The United Nations
classifies these munitions as illegal
weapons of mass destruction:
According to a August 2002 report by the UN subcommission, laws which are
breached by the use of DU shells include: the Universal Declaration of Human
Rights; the Charter of the United Nations; the Genocide Convention; the
Convention Against Torture; the four Geneva Conventions of 1949; the
Conventional Weapons Convention of 1980; and the Hague Conventions of 1899 and
1907, which expressly forbid employing 'poison or poisoned weapons' and 'arms,
projectiles or materials calculated to cause unnecessary suffering'. All of
these laws are designed to spare civilians from unwarranted suffering in armed
We know the Bush regime
is not concerned about the affects of DU poisoning on the neighboring countries
of Iran, Syria and Saudi Arabia because they are the next targets of
imperialistic conquest. Bush has already received his marching orders from
Ariel Sharon to conquer those nations. [Their only hope now is to GET
nuclear weapons which would deter the US from attacking them]
But the disregard for
the health of even his own soldiers, that's another thing. I guess this is to
be expected from a leader of troops who himself went AWOL from the National Guard
while trying to avoid military service in Vietnam. So while America is still
treating 34% of it veterans from the first Persian Gulf War, it better be
prepared for a whole new influx of patients from this one.

doors away, two sisters were killed in an identical manner. "We have never
seen anything like these wounds before," Dr Ahmed, an anaesthetist at the

Shocking Truth About 'Shock and Awe' by Robert Fisk Independent UK - We

resistance" – a bit more military-speak from the BBC – but failed to
mention that the A-10 uses depleted uranium rounds. So for the first time since
1991, we – the West – are spraying these uranium aerosols in battlefield
explosions in southern Iraq; and we're not being told. Why not?
