    Wednesday, March 28, 2012Terence Weldon has lost his faith in Christ, His Church and her doctrines Terence Weldon wants to introduce us to James Nickoloff, a confused and lost soul whom he refers to as a "gay Catholic theologian." Weldon writes, "Dr James B Nickoloff is an openly gay, Catholic theologian, who unlike many others to whom that description applies, is working in an eminently respectable corner of the Catholic academy. He is Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts, and also an adjunct professor at the Jesuit University of Santa Clara,...

    Recently, radical homosexual activist Terence Weldon wrote an ugly Blog post suggesting that Pope Benedict XVI has a homosexual inclination. In this offensive post, Mr. Weldon wrote: "‘The question has been often asked,and sometimes answered by way of speculation amounting to not much more than guesswork or innuendo based largely on observations on the devoted, ever present and attentive gorgeous Georg or the expensive Prada red shoes, or the personalized celebrity fragrance. Does it matter? Richard Sipe, noting that Benedict has has been the author [of] seriously nasty Vatican documents seeking to bar gay men from the priesthood, and labelling...

    Dr. Antonio Pardo has explained that in animals, "..the interaction of other instincts (particularly dominance) can result in behavior that appears to be homosexual. Such behavior cannot be equated with an animal homosexuality. All it means is that animal sexual behavior encompasses aspects beyond that of reproduction." This scientific fact upsets radical homosexual activists who believe that homosexual behavior is observable in animals and that since homosexuality is in accordance with animal nature it must also be in accordance with human nature since man is also animal. This is their reasoning. Radical homosexual activist and dissenter Terence Weldon, who serves...

    Terence Weldon, the radical homosexual activist who authors the "Queering the Church" Blog and who serves as an Extraordinary Minister at the infamous Soho Masses in England - the same disturbed individual who has blasphemously suggested that Our Lord Jesus had a homosexual inclination - is once again challenging the authoritative teaching of the Catholic Church regarding the homosexual inclination. He writes, "In the CDF Hallowe’en Letter [here he is sarcastically and irreverently refering to the October 1, 1986 document entitled "Letter on the Pastoral Care of Homosexual Persons" published by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith], possibly...

    9/11: Why would the Pentagon buy and destroy copies of a book by a former Army intelligence officer? Could it be perhaps because it contained information on how the 9/11 attacks might have been prevented? The impulse to dismiss this as just another conspiracy theory is overwhelming. Yet the fact is that the Pentagon bought and destroyed 10,000 copies of a book, "Operation Dark Heart," written by Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, a Bronze Star recipient and career Army intelligence officer, that contained a chapter on a pre-9/11 intelligence operation, Able Danger. In a statement, the Pentagon said it "decided to...

    9/11, Info Sharing, and “The Wall” The rise of “the wall” between intelligence and law enforcement personnel that impeded the sharing of information within the U.S. government prior to September 11, 2001 was critically examined in a detailed monograph (pdf) that was prepared in 2004 for the 9/11 Commission. It is the only one of four staff monographs that had not previously been released. It was finally declassified and disclosed earlier this month [ --searchable HTML transcript at].

There is so much we can do, and I will continue working hard in Congress to lower the cost of gasoline through effective and safe measures. When I came to Congress 14 years ago one of the many issues I began to work on was the critical issue of energy supply. America’s economy was growing and with it was the demand for fuel. At the same time, nations like China and India were throwing off the shackles of...

But deputies said she didn't get any special treatment. Weldon, 21, was booked, put in jailhouse clothing and sat in the Brevard County jail for more than three hours waiting to get bailed out.

    The CIA's top leaders failed to use their available powers, never developed a comprehensive plan to stop al-Qaida and missed crucial opportunities to thwart two hijackers in the run-up to Sept. 11, the agency's own watchdog concluded in a bruising report released Tuesday. Completed in June 2005 and kept classified until now, the 19-page executive summary finds extensive fault with the actions of senior CIA leaders and others beneath them. "The agency and its officers did not discharge their responsibilities in a satisfactory manner," the CIA inspector general found. "They did not always work effectively and cooperatively," *snip* Yet the...

    Shades of the Old Rudy! America's Mayor provided the most electrifying moment of Tuesday night's GOP presidential debate when he ripped into Rep. Ron Paul for suggesting that U.S. foreign policy invited the 9/11 attacks. "That's an extraordinary statement," said a clearly indignant Rudy Giuliani, as he demanded that Paul retract the assertion. "I don't think I've ever heard that before, and I've heard some pretty absurd explanations for Sept. 11." Good for him. Most of Rudy's rivals doubtless thought it best just to ignore the Texas oddball's isolationist rant. But Giuliani decided otherwise - and he was right to...

    Most terrorists seem like bumbling losers if they're caught before the act: That's certainly true of the Fort Dix jihadists who took their terrorist training DVD to the local audio store to be copied. It was also true of the Islamists arrested in Toronto last year for plotting to behead the prime minister, one of whose cell members had a bride who wanted him to sign a prenup committing him to jihad. The Heathrow plotters arrested while planning to blow up U.S.-bound airliners included a Muslim convert who'd started out as the son of a British Conservative Party official with...

    The first face-to-face confrontation of the 2008 presidential race is looming over a US Senate inquiry into health problems suffered by workers at New York’s ground zero after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. As the chairwoman of a Senate subcommittee investigating complaints that workers were misled about air quality after the collapse of the twin towers, Senator Hillary Clinton, the Democrat front-runner for the presidential nomination, confirmed last week that she is considering calling Rudolph Giuliani, the former mayor of New York and the leading Republican contender, to testify at a public hearing. The health committee’s inquiry has...

    Freshman Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) has ignited a controversy after agreeing to be the keynote speaker at an April 7 banquet and fundraiser hosted by the Philadelphia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. CAIR is the largest Muslim civil rights group in the country, with 30 chapters nationwide. Jewish organizations and conservative groups have criticized CAIR for not labeling Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist organizations and for not specifically denouncing suicide bombings against Israelis. Sestak's acceptance of the invitation has particularly enraged members of the Philadelphia Jewish community, who bombarded him with critical questions at a two-hour forum last...

In a letter to members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sens. Pat Roberts and John D. Rockefeller dismissed suggestions by Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Pa., that defense analysts ignored analysis that could have prevented the attacks.

He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor in 2005 and paid a $50,000 fine. But now the report of the Archives' Inspector General has come to light, and it suggests Mr. Berger knew he was engaged in a bit of hugger-mugger when he secreted the after-action memos he was reviewing out of the building. According to the report, obtained by the Associated Press through a Freedom of...

    It was a real Cinderella story. When last heard from, Virginia resident Joe Sestak had been – in the words of the Philadelphia Inquirer – "unceremoniously fired" from his job as a deputy chief of naval operations. This was in August 2005. In January 2006, Sestak quietly retired from the Navy. Looking about for a new career, Sestak decided, improbably enough, on Congress. The nostalgic admiral eyed not the Virginia district in which he lived, but the Pennsylvania district in which he had last lived as a boy. More daunting still, he would be facing off against popular 10-term maverick...

    "I will not make a single stop in this campaign season that means more to me than this one – not one," former President Bill Clinton told a crowd of nearly 900 at a rally for congressional candidate Joseph Sestak in eastern Pennsylvania two weeks ago. Clinton was not exaggerating. "A Sestak victory," observed the local Delco Times accurately, "would muzzle a Republican congressman who blames Clinton for doing irreparable harm to America's national security during the 1990s." Sestak is running against ten-term incumbent Curt Weldon. No one has burrowed more deeply into Clinton's intelligence failures and, yes, cover-ups than...

    Conservative Republican Curt Weldon, running for re-election to the U.S. House, says some of his former "political enemies" are stepping up to the plate in hopes of defeating him. Weldon, who represents Pennsylvania's 7th Congressional District, says "the Clintonistas" are going after him in full force. "From Sandy Berger to John Deutsch, John Kerry to Tony Lake, to Jamie Gorelick, Mary McCarthy. They're all involved in my opponent's campaign," says Weldon. Why? According to Weldon, it is because he is in line to chair the House Armed Services Committee - and plans to expose flaws in policies put in place...

    If you think former President Bill Clinton has been in a sour mood, what with all the finger-pointing of late surrounding his administration's reaction (or lack thereof) to global terrorism, wait until he sees three television ads that will start airing in the coming days. The group Move America Forward, based in Sacramento, Calif., says it's had enough of Mr. Clinton Continues... ============================================================== Bill Clinton: At least I tried and I failed The truth is, I tried to make this essay about the leaked N.I.E. report, but I failed.

    September 25, 2006 What Bill Clinton Wanted To Accomplish Still wondering what Pres. Clinton was trying to accomplish in his fiery, finger-wagging chat with FOX's Chris Wallace? Look no further than Camp Clinton's explanation. "When Wallace questioned his record on terrorism, he responded forcefully, as any Democrat would or should," said spokesperson Jay Carson, in what were essentially Clinton's marching orders to Dems some 6 weeks before E-Day. Be forceful, show backbone, defend your record. Lose your temper, if you must. This outburst may have been a calculated bid to frame the debate, by example, and prep his party for...

    The Defense Department's inspector general on Thursday dismissed claims by military officers and others who had insisted that a secret Pentagon program identified Mohamed Atta and other terrorists involved in the Sept. 11 attacks before the attacks occurred. The inspector general's office, which acts as the Defense Department's internal watchdog, said in a report that its investigators found no evidence to suggest that the intelligence program, known as Able Danger, had identified Mr. Atta, the Egyptian-born ringleader of the attacks, or any of the other terrorists before Sept. 11. "We concluded that prior to Sept. 11, 2001, Able Danger team...

    WASHINGTON - A Pentagon report rejects the idea that intelligence gathered by a secret military unit could have been used to stop the Sept. 11 hijackings. The Pentagon inspector general's office said Thursday that a review of records from the unit, known as Able Danger, found no evidence it had identified ringleader Mohamed Atta or any other terrorist who participated in the 2001 attacks. The report was ordered following the assertion last year that the unit had identified four of the 19 hijackers in 2000. That claim was made by a former intelligence officer who worked on Able Danger, Lt....

    A new Pentagon report knocks down the idea that a secret military unit had garnered intelligence a year before the Sept. 11 attacks that might have stopped the hijackers, a senior defense official said Thursday. Lawmakers were supposed to be briefed Thursday on the Defense Department inspector general's report, and officials hoped to post a redacted version of the report on the Pentagon's Web site as early as Thursday afternoon, two officials said. The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the report had not yet been released, declined to provide further details about the study's conclusions.

    SPRINGFIELD - Congressman Curt Weldon is leading his opponent by 19 percentage points according to his campaign's latest internal polling, demonstrating significant support from local voters for his reelection campaign in Pennsylvania's 7th Congressional District. According to a poll conducted by Public Opinion Strategies on September 12-13, 2006, Weldon leads his opponent Joe Sestak by a 52 percent to 33 percent margin. The district wide survey of 400 likely voters has a margin of error of +/- 4.9 percent in 95 out of 100 cases. These positive numbers for Congressman Weldon are despite poll results that show both Bob Casey...

    Over the years, historians and dramatists will produce many, many versions of "The Path to 9/11." If Bill Clinton wishes in the future to complain about historical inaccuracies, I suggest he first answer one question: What handwritten notes, and by whom, were on the three copies of classified documents (out of five) that Sandy Berger chose to steal and cut up with scissors in 2003, smack in the middle of the 9/11 commission's investigation? When we know the answer to that question, Bill, then and only then will you be entitled to complain about historical inaccuracies in the record.

    This week's Democratic response to the president's weekly radio address will come from an unusual source -- this time a candidate, not a member of Congress, will speak. Joe Sestak, 54, is running for Congress in the 7th Congressional District in Delaware County. His opponent is ten-term incumbent Republican Curt Weldon, whom Democrats believe can be beaten in the fall. Sestak says he was surprised by a phone call Wednesday evening from House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi: "She said, 'Joe, I'd be honored if you would speak for the party on national radio, and with your background and how well...

    Weldon vs. Sestak is being billed as one of the more hotly contested congressional races in America. Millions of dollars is being raised and Democrats see it as a chance to knock off a powerful 10-term Republican. The voters of Delaware County have gotten to know -- for better and for worse -- who Curt Weldon is over his 30-plus-year political career. But just who is Joe Sestak? He hasn’t lived in Delaware County in three decades. He has a terrific resume, but was sent packing from the Navy after a 31-year career in which he rose to the rank...

    WASHINGTON — For Democrats in Pennsylvania's 7th Congressional District, a candidate like Joe Sestak only comes along once in 20 years. A Harvard PhD and a retired two-star admiral who commanded an aircraft carrier battle group in Operation Enduring Freedom, Sestak has been raising money furiously, so much money that national party Democrats have taken notice. They are now saying he has a chance at beating incumbent Rep. Curt Weldon, a Republican who has been representing the district since 1986. "Curt Weldon … at this point after 20 years in Congress, is out of touch with the needs of the...
