Can Bin Laden and Organized Crime Nuke the USA?

Can Bin Laden and Organized Crime Nuke the USA?

The author of The Al Qaeda Connection: International Terrorism, Organized Crime, And the Coming Apocalypse, Paul L. Williams told NewsMax:

"It is not a question of if....it is a question of when."[http://72.14.203.104/search?q=cache:bV3TnuMfjtkJ:www.newsmax.com/archives/articles/2004/7/14/215350.shtml+paul+williams+al+qaeda&hl=en&gl=us&ct=clnk&cd=2&ie=UTF-8]

However, Michael Swetnam, former CIA officer told CNSNews.com that he disagrees with Williams' belief that al Qaeda already has nukes in the U S.

"I think if they had them here, they'd have used them, absolutely," Swetnam said.

"In today's world we're only able to search or screen five percent of the stuff that comes into the country, particularly by ship. So the odds of them being able to smuggle something in are pretty good."

Williams, a former consultant to the FBI on organized crime and terrorism, claims that the Islamic Mafia and Latin American organized crime inside and outside the United States are helping Bin Laden in his plot to kill millions of Americans. Moreover Al Qaeda is using it’s profits in heroin traffic to the US to finance its plot.

There is no way to verify all of Williams claims, but we do know that Osama bin Laden is a drug-lord so this is very possible.

On Dec 6 2004, The Washington Times reported that Rep. Mark Steven Kirk, Illinois Republican, in an interview said bin Laden's al Qaeda “is reaping $28 million a year in illicit heroin sales.”

"We now know al Qaeda's dominant source of funding is the illegal sale of narcotics," said Mr. Kirk, a member of the House Appropriations foreign operations subcommittee.

"We have to nail the drug-lord financing first. "Once you hit his income, you head off his ability to pay local warlords."

Yet, the Times reported that the “Bush administration officials are reluctant to publicly discuss bin Laden's drug ties. This is because more members of Congress may press the Pentagon to do something it does not want to do: order troops to begin attacking drug convoys. Commanders say their 20,000 troops already have a full plate of missions battling Taliban and al Qaeda insurgents.”

Our Lady of Fatima's Blue Army vs. Islamic Terrorist

Our Lady of Fatima's Blue Army vs. Islamic Terrorist


Fr. John Sweeny of Our Lady of Peace who passed away recently was a friend who help me become more devoted to the message of Fatima. After the USSR fall I stopped doing the requests of Our Lady of Fatima, but recently in prayer I've been drawn back to doing the first saturdays and the whole message of OLF.

I just started reading, Blue Army founder and personal friend of Sister Lucia of Fatima, John Haffert's Deadline The Third Secret of Fatima on how OLF's message still needs a "few generous souls" for Russia to be converted, so that OLF's prediction that "several entire nations will not annihilated" may not happen especially by Islamic terrorist and (in my opinion possibly by Communist China) and for the era of peace Our Lady forsaw.

Anyone wanting to get Deadine The Third Secret of Fatima or other information on Fatima can go to the Blue Army site http://www.wafusa.org/ .

Below are some interesting facts on Our Lady and world peace taken from

Our Lady of Fatima and her role in today's War with the World War on Islamic Jihad

The Battle of Lepanto, was waged by a coalition made up of don Juan of Austria, an illegitmate son of Emperor Charles V and half brother of King Philip II. Very Interesting stuff! With very whimpy Unlimited Term Legislators in both Chambers of Congress and great Terrorist Fighting Pres. George Dubya Bush with only 2 years left, we are gonna need help from Heaven to win this WWIJ(World War on Isalamic Jihadist)!

From EWTN

-"The Battle of Lepanto was at first celebrated liturgically as "Our Lady of Victory." Later, the feast of October 7th was renamed "Our Lady of the Rosary" and extended throughout the Universal Church by Pope Clement XI in 1716 (who canonized Pope Pius V in 1712).
Knowing that the Christian forces were at a distinct material disadvantage, the holy pontiff, St. Pope Pius V called for all of Europe to pray the Rosary for victory. We know today that the victory was decisive, prevented the Islamic invasion of Europe, and evidenced the Hand of God working through Our Lady. At the hour of victory, St. Pope Pius V, who was hundreds of miles away at the Vatican, is said to have gotten up from a meeting, went over to a window, and exclaimed with supernatural radiance: "The Christian fleet is victorious!" and shed tears of thanksgiving to God.
-And with that we are back to Fatima, Portugal where Our Lady, when asked her name, said: "I am the Lady of the Rosary." At Fatima, Our Lady taught us to pray the Rosary every day. Heaven presented its peace plan at Fatima and truly gave us hope for the world. Conversions were promised at Fatima: the conversion of sinners; the conversion of Russia; and what also appears to be the conversion of Islam. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us!"
-What you may not know is that one of three admirals commanding the Catholic forces at Lepanto was Andrea Doria. He carried a small copy of Mexico's Our Lady of Guadalupe into battle. This image is now enshrined in the Church of San Stefano in Aveto, Italy. Not many know that at the Monastery of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Spain, one can view a huge warship lantern that was captured from the Moslems in the Battle of Lepanto. In Rome, look up to the ceiling of S. Maria in Aracoeli and behold decorations in gold taken from the Turkish galleys. In the Doges' Palace in Venice, Italy, one can witness a giant Islamic flag that is now a trophy from a vanquished Turkish ship from the Victory. At Saint Mary Major Basilica in Rome, close to the tomb of the great St. Pope Pius V, one was once able to view yet another Islamic flag from the Battle, until 1965, when it was returned to Istanbul in an intended friendly token of concord.
-On October 7, 1571, a great victory over the mighty Turkish fleet was won by Catholic naval forces primarily from Spain, Venice, and Genoa under the command of Don Juan of Austria. It was the last battle at sea between "oared" ships, which featured the most powerful navy in the world, a Moslem force with between 12,000 to 15,000 Christian slaves as rowers. The patchwork team of Catholic ships was powered by the Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary.Knowing that the Christian forces were at a distinct material disadvantage, the holy pontiff, St. Pope Pius V called for all of Europe to pray the Rosary for victory. We know today that the victory was decisive, prevented the Islamic invasion of Europe, and evidenced the Hand of God working through Our Lady. At the hour of victory, St. Pope Pius V, who was hundreds of miles away at the Vatican, is said to have gotten up from a meeting, went over to a window, and exclaimed with supernatural radiance: "The Christian fleet is victorious!" and shed tears of thanksgiving to God.

Here is the Catholic Solution as it worked for the USSR so it will work for Islam! Look at Spanish History

Book By Superior Raises Fatima Mystery: Did Lucia Have Visions Up To Her Death?
7/29/2006 9:47:00 AM - Spirit Daily

A new booklet by the superior at the convent where Sister Lucia dos Santos spent her final decades reveals previously unknown details about the famous Fatima seer's life and raises new questions about the extent of her mysticism -- with indications that visions or at least unusual experiences remained with the cloistered nun into her final years.

Speaking of Lucia's cell in Coimbra, where the seer lived for more than fifty years, the superior, Sister Maria Celina de Jesus Crucificado, asks, "How many times did Our Lady appear there? We still don't know. But one day I witnessed something which showed me with what simplicity she approached both the supernatural and ordinary everyday life. It was in the year 2003, on May 26, I went with her to the lower choir in order to take a photograph of her with the image of the Immaculate Heart of Mary which had just been given to us.

"When I had taken the photograph, Sister Lucia continued to gaze at the image," writes the superior. "I did not disturb her. Then, turning to me, she exclaimed: 'Our Lady is crying!' I think that, thanks to her extraordinary purity, her 'ingenuousness,' she who had been the recipient of so many visions that no one else had seen thought at that moment that I, too, could see what she saw." Thinking Lucia's statement was a question, Sister Crucificado says she at first replied that the statue was not weeping -- whereupon the Fatima seer, who died in February of 2005 at 97, "looked 'caught out,' so to speak, like a child whose mother finds her stealing jam! I thought I should not ask any questions."

Entering the order of Carmelites in 1948 after a stint at another convent, Sister Lucia, whose baptismal name was Lucia Rosa Santos, and who at the first convent had been known as Sister Maria das Dores, donned a habit like the garments worn by the Blessed Mother during the apparition of October 13, 1917. She would remain in those garments for the next half a century.

According to the superior, the seer [above, left] was both a humorist and spark plug -- unafraid to venture outdoors during the dangerous civil war in Spain and once issuing a few slaps on the street to a boy who was taunting the sisters. "Her heart appeared impervious to fear," writes Sister Crucificado, adding that on a journey to check on other sisters from whom no one had heard, she led soldiers in the singing of the Rosario da Aurora as danger surrounded.

In those cloistered years, it is revealed, Sister Lucia humbly tended to everything from beehives to kitchen supplies and the larder. For many years she also watched over a small niche at the entrance to the infirmary where there was a white statue of Mary.

Although interested in affairs of the world, says the superior, Sister Lucia rarely discussed them and did not seem affected by them, nor with modern technology. "She was offered an electronic typewriter when she was already over seventy years of age, and had no difficulty in learning how to use it," notes Sister Crucificado. "It is a computerized machine which, however, was never connected to the internet. Contrary to what has been stated, Sister Lucia never worked with a computer, and never visited a 'site.' She was very interested, asked questions, but ended saying, 'My machine is better than this!'"

It was starting around 2000 -- and indeed the time when her precious cousins and fellow seers, Jacinta and Francesco Marto, were beatified (and the third secret revealed) that the remaining seer began to become especially weak, often pushed about in a wheelchair. She also became forgetful -- except when it came to the Fatima message, about which her memory, says Sister Crucificado, "was as clear as ever."

Sister Lucia was upset, says the superior, by speculation about the third secret before it was revealed and aggravated with the debate that came after. "Because of the polemics that were stirred up by certain groups who were not happy with the text of the third secret, a special envoy from the Holy See came to hear Sister Lucia herself say that she had nothing more to reveal," says the nun. "One day I said to her, 'Sister Lucia, people are saying that there is yet another secret!' She replied, 'If they know that there is another secret, let them reveal it! I know of no other! Some people are never satisfied. Take no notice!'"

It was the week of her 97th birthday that the famed visionary began to complain of great pain in her legs and was accompanied during the night by a younger sister, whom she often made laugh, says Sister Crucificado. There was a fainting spell and a "new, painful, and difficult phase." She became hoarse and yet at Christmas in 2004 still mustered the strength to hold a statue of the Child Jesus, as was her custom. Cold, an electric blanket was used to keep the seer warm. She took her final food on January 28, 2005, and on February 8 began to receive oxygen, along with the intravenous feed upon which she had been placed.

In those final days, says the superior, Sister Lucia "made countless affectionate gestures to the statue of Our Lady of Fatima which Pope John Paul II had sent to her in December 2003 and made the Sign of the Cross several times before the same image." There were moments when she would squeeze a fellow sister's hand. "Then she would say, slowly: 'Our Lady! Our Lady! Angels! Angels! Heart of Jesus! Heart of Jesus!" On February 10, she revealed that she had been offering her sufferings for the Holy Father.

At midnight on February 13, a sister brought the image of Mary to the seer's lips, Lucia kissed it, and for the remainder of the night passed beads of the Rosary through her feeble hands as the fellow nun recited it. The local bishop was summoned and prayed for Lucia to be received in the arms of Jesus and Mary, as well as her deceased cousins.

"It is impossible to describe the atmosphere of peace that we lived at that time," writes Sister Crucificado. "Yes, at that moment her eyes, which were closing to this life, were opening to the Eternal Light of God. Then, quite suddenly and unexpectedly, those eyes which had so often contemplated the Invisible opened wide! She looked at all the sisters. Then she turned to the right and gazed into my eyes. I cannot describe the depth of that look. It was deeply moving. I placed the Crucifix on the right side, after which she closed her eyes. It was her farewell."

Death came to the most famous Marian seer in the world at 5:25 p.m. on Sunday the 13th in that cell which as Sister Crucificado says "keeps secrets that we shall know only in Heaven."

Monsignor John Sweeny Showed me What it Meant to be a Catholic

Monsignor John Sweeny Showed me What it Meant to be a Catholic

In 2002 Monsignor John Sweeny showed me what it meant to be a Catholic. With dignity and calm he prayed and obeyed as meetings were held to force him to step down. Monsignor Sweeny always told his parishioners that all would be well if we prayed, especially the rosary.

On the evening of March 12, 2002 seven officials of the Diocese of San Jose met with the staff and lay leaders at Our Lady of Peace in Santa Clara. Twenty parishioners prayed the rosary for them outside the closed door meeting.

Most staff and lay leaders coming out of the closed-door meetings expressed hope that Sweeny's legacy of emphasis on the sacraments and spirituality would not be changed.

Keith Robinson, one of the attendees of the lay leader meeting said "The lay leaders emphasized that Monsignor Sweeny had built a truly culturally diverse parish. We talked about the power of perpetual adoration, the focus on the Mass and the Eucharist, and confession."

"It felt different than a lot of churches I go around to here. The people were very focused on their prayers. They were kneeling. It just felt different" Richard Scheninin, religion and ethics writer for the San Jose Mercury News said.

"I immediately liked [Monsignor Sweeny] a lot. He seemed like a humble guy. There is something kind of dashing and youthful about him even though they say he is 77. He seemed like someone who would, without asking for it, demand respect. It gave me a little insight into why people feel so strongly about him."

The parishioners' meeting was a standing-room only crowd of approximately six hundred including reporters. Most parishioners expressed concern with possible changes and others were angered that Sweeny was stepping down.

At one point the crowd broke into a chant of "no change." Someone asked the crowd to calm down, and they did. Not too long after this a woman with children around her with a voice about to break asked that the parish not be changed.

After her an elderly blind woman said, "I'd like to see perpetual adoration stay. Another women said, "This is like our home." Towards the end of the meeting a man said that he had personally seen many people saved from suicide at Our Lady of Peace. He asked that the parish not be changed.

The meetings ended a little more than a week before Holy Week with many parishioners fearing their parish would be changed. The result of meetings came on March 27 during Holy Week. The diocese of San Jose announced that the Order of the Incarnate Word would be assuming responsibility for Our Lady of Peace later in the year.

Monsignor Sweeny said of the order "It's good. They are devoted to Our Blessed Virgin Mary through St. Louis De Monfort."
