A religious group known as the Branch Davidians lived in their compound they called Mt. Carmel just outside Waco, Texas. On April 19, 1993 agents of the United States government attacked their compound and murdered helpless women and children with battle tanks, flame-throwers, and poison gas. Nearly 100 innocent people lost their lives as a result. What makes this a tragedy of the most terrible proportions is that the Davidians had done nothing to provoke this attack by the United States’ government.
The Branch Davidians got along well with those of the surrounding community. They had some religious beliefs that made them different from other churches, but, then, many of the so-called standard churches differ from each other. Their religious differences were certainly no excuse for the United States government to destroy their home and their lives, especially without a trial. The First Amendment to the Constitution guarantees the right to worship God according to the dictates of one’s own conscience, but the government completely ignored this right in the massacre at Waco.
An extremely important point to understand is that virtually everything the government and the news media said about these people were lies. Many so-called experts delivered testimony that caused the majority of people to believe the exact opposite of the truth. Because of these extensive lies, very few people know what the Branch Davidians were really like, and very few people know exactly what took place during the siege at Waco. The lies were told in order to try to justify in some impossible way what the government did there.
The First Amendment to the Constitution says that the government shall make NO law pertaining to religion. The constitutional rights of the Branch Davidians were totally ignored. The murderers were guilty of the most heinous crimes, and they totally got away with it.
The morning before Easter last year, Shirley Burton, spokeswoman for the Seventh-day Adventist church, said she got a terrifying phone call. On the line was a church official in Australia, relaying a warning that the next day, an explosion of violence would occur in a Waco, Texas, cult that included dozens of former Adventists. The man got the warning from parents of a cult member.
“The parents had just had word that there would be a suicide-massacre,” Burton said, adding that her mind filled with images of the 1978 murder-suicide of Jim Jones and 900 of his followers in Guyana.
Church authorities tipped off Waco police and Easter passed without incident. But peace came to a bloody end this past Sunday, when sect members began a shoot out with federal agents. — The Washington Post, March 3, 1993.
The words “cult” and “sect” are used any time the government or news media want to cast suspicion on or discredit a particular church group.
Last spring officials of the Seventh-day Adventist church heard from colleagues in Sydney that the Branch Davidians were planning a mass suicide for Easter Sunday. About the same time the State Department got word from sources in Australia that Koresh’s group was stockpiling arms and planning suicide. State passed it on to the ATF [the government’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms] which began its investigation in June . — Newsweek, March 15, 1993.
Both of these articles tell of malicious rumors being circulated about the Branch Davidians. Nothing ever came of them. David Koresh, the leader of the Davidians, learned that the ATF wanted to get complete information about him in June, 1992. Koresh invited the BATF [the government’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms] to come out to the Mount Carmel compound in order to look and see what ever they wanted. Tragically, the BATF refused to come out.
The siege on the Davidian compound began on February 28, 1993. Instead of simply knocking on the front door, 100 BATF agents stormed the compound to arrest David Koresh. Koresh went jogging quite frequently, and the government could have arrested him during those times, but they weren’t interested in simply arresting Koresh. The government wanted a confrontation. Unthreatened BATF and FBI agents opened fire with automatic weapons at the front door and the walls, knowing that there were innocent women and children inside.
During this siege, four BATF agents were killed. The four BATF agents, that died on February 28, had all been bodyguards for Bill Clinton from the time of the Democratic convention until Bill Clinton became president. These four BATF agents were the only federal agents to die in the siege at Waco. Linda Thompson’s videotape entitled Waco, the Big Lie, shows that those BATF agents were not killed or shot at by Branch Davidians. The tape shows the agents going into the compound through an upstairs window. It then shows the other BATF agent, who is out on the roof, actually shooting in through the window where those BATF agents had just entered. Those four BATF agents, who were bodyguards of Bill Clinton, were killed by their own people!
There are many questions in the Waco tragedy that have never been answered. Why did Bill Clinton go to such extremes at Waco? There were problems at the Mount Carmel compound in 1987. There was a shoot out over the leadership of the Branch Davidians between David Koresh and his followers and George Roden and his followers. Seven Davidians, at that time, along with David Koresh, were arrested, indicted, and tried for attempted murder. According to the prosecutor in the case, McClennan County District Attorney Vic Feazell:
We had no problems. We treated them like human beings rather than storm-trooping the place. They were extremely polite people. After the trial, although we didn’t agree with everything they believed or said, many of the staff were pretty sympathetic with them. — Houston Chronicle, March 1st, 1993.
The government’s action was a vulgar display of power, being met with fear and paranoia on the part of the Davidians. If the federal government had called and talked to the Davidians, the Davidians would have given them what ever they wanted.
Koresh had another situation involving Federal authorities. On an April 21st, 1993 television interview, Henry McMahon, who owned a gun store in Waco, stated that
David Koresh has purchased at least fifty thousand dollars worth of firearms from me. In July of 1992, BATF officers came to my store, asking about Koresh and his gun purchases. I called David Koresh, while the BATF were still in the store. Koresh told me that if there is a problem, tell them to come out here. I offered to take the BATF agents out to the Mount Carmel compound to see the firearms that Koresh had purchased, but the BATF agents declined.
Koresh had been extremely cooperative in 1987 and then again in 1992. There was obviously some sinister reason why Federal agents, under the leadership of Bill Clinton, perpetrated such cruelty at Mt. Carmel. Let us investigate the real reason for the Waco massacre.
If David Koresh was the prime target of the government, why was he not arrested peacefully so that so many innocent lives would not have been lost? The claims or lies of the BATF were that Koresh never was out of the compound where he could be arrested. Paul Fatta, a Branch Davidian who was out on errands when the raid started, made this comment in many press releases.
David Koresh, others, and myself, have gone jogging down the road three miles from the compound many times. Why wasn’t he arrested then? We were off the property several times.
Why wasn’t Koresh arrested on one of those jogging outings or when he was in Waco?
Did the Branch Davidians know they were being attacked by federal agents? David Thibodeau, a Waco survivor, was interviewed on A Current Affair, a national television show, May 3rd, 1993. He declared that one of the members of the Branch Davidians, Wayne Martin, a Harvard-trained attorney, called 911 shortly after the federal agents stormed the compound. He was put through to another agency, and the person said, “Well, hi boys, how y’all doin’ out there?” Wayne Martin screams into the phone, “We’re getting shot at. We’re getting killed. We’re getting killed.”
Since all 911 calls are preserved, it seems that it would be easy to confirm this phone call, but as Current Affair reporter Mary Garafolo stated, “It has become a controversial recording that the police refuse to release to the press.” There was absolutely no response to that emergency 911 call. Why not? Only people working for a power that hates our liberties and freedoms could do such a thing. Jesuit Bill Clinton, who took a solemn oath to obey the Constitution, totally ignored the Constitution in the abomination that occurred at Waco.
It is here that the tremendous power of the [Catholic] church makes itself felt. It is through this [Jesuit] direction that statesmen are compelled to act, not for the benefit of the country to which they belong, but for the benefit of the Church, which controls them. It is here that matters of the most secret nature are discussed and decided. — M.F. Cusack, The Black Pope, Marshall Russell & Co., p. 106. (emphasis added.)
We should explain here that the name, Black Pope, is the name or title given to the supreme Jesuit general, who is probably the most powerful man in the world. He remains totally in the background, and very few even know about him.
Let us next investigate the charges of physical or sexual abuse at the Mount Carmel compound. James Tom, an ex-Davidian, was the loudest critic of the Branch Davidians. He stated that David Koresh spanked his (Tom’s) daughter for 30 to 40 minutes, and Tom, who was standing right there, did nothing to stop it. If David Koresh truly spanked his daughter for 30 to 40 minutes, how could a father be so afraid that he would not intervene to stop it?
Tom declared that Koresh was the image of Charles Manson. If Koresh was the image of Manson, why would Tom join in the first place?
When 21 children were allowed to leave the Mount Carmel Center, the Houston Post stated “The 21 children were psychologically in good condition. They were in good condition physically and they were also very well educated.” In fact, the children, who left Mount Carmel, were not physically, mentally, morally, or psychologically abused at all.
David Koresh was demonized by those most guilty of the massacre to be some absolutely crazy monster. Bob Ricks, the man in charge of the Waco massacre, stated that David Koresh was a classical sociopath.
It was Ricks who had been in charge at Waco. — The (UK) Observer, April 22, 2001.
Attorney General Janet Reno called him “a dangerous criminal.” Fort Worth News columnist Bill Thompson called him “a vile mass murderer,” and Bill Clinton referred to him as “dangerous, irrational, and probably insane.”
These people practice what V. I. Lenin advised: “Call your enemy what you are, and always tell the exact opposite of the truth.” David Koresh was demonized to try to justify their heinous crime.
Another most despicable crime of the Waco murderers was the spraying of CS gas into the compound at the women and small children. U.S. Congressman Ron Paul stated that
“CS gas is banned under the Paris Convention on chemical warfare. The U.S. could not use it in war. It is illegal, but they would use it against their own citizens.” — The Washington Times, April 23,1993.
Benjamin Garrett, executive director of Chemical and Biological Arms Control stated,
CS gas would have most harshly affected the children — The smaller you are, the sooner you would feel the response. — Ibid.
CS gas is one of the most cruel poisons that the government could have used against the small children. Pictures from the massacre showed small children, burned black, with their backs arched backward in what had to have been a most horrible death.
The people that gave the order for CS gas to be pumped into the Waco compound had called David Koresh some terrible names. They also stated they pumped the gas in for the sake of the children. The awful names applied to Koresh apply to them, and the same people, Bill Clinton, Janet Reno, and Bob Ricks murdered those children at Waco.
With so many crimes committed at Waco by people in high places, we turn to the aftermath of the Waco tragedy. Many times an event can be better understood by the events that transpire after it. Who benefits? Was any controversial legislation passed that would destroy Constitutional liberty? Was this pay back for something done in the past?
Two weeks after the massacre at Mount Carmel compound, John Chafee, a senator from Rhode Island, called for a new law that would be a nationwide ban on hand gun ownership. It would prohibit the sale, possession, importing, and exporting of hand guns. Had Chafee’s proposal become law, it would have torn a huge gap in the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which says, “…the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” Every gun law that Congress passes is an infringement against this right.
Who wants to disarm American citizens? No one wants to be the dictator of a nation with 200 million guns around. When the citizens of a nation are armed, where their right to own guns is not infringed, the crime rate is extremely low.
Every man in Switzerland is required to have guns in his home, including assault rifles. Crime in Switzerland is almost non-existent. In states and cities in America that allow people to carry guns, the crime rate is extremely low. During World Wathe o, Hitler wanted to invade Switzerland. The Swiss told him that he could send his army across the boarder, but none of his officers would return. Hitler gave the order to invade Switzerland several times, but his officers simply would not obey. Switzerland remained safely neutral all during the war.
Who has hated the Constitution from the very beginning? From the very inception of this country, the Jesuits have sought to destroy the Constitution. They called the Constitution a Satanic document.
The great French General Lafayette once said,
It is my opinion that if the liberties of this country — the United States — are destroyed, it will be by the subtlety of the Roman Catholic Jesuit priests, for they are the most crafty, dangerous enemies to civil and religious liberty. They have instigated most of the wars in Europe. — Eric Jon Phelps, Vatican Assassins, Halycon Unified Services, p. 54.
The Jesuits used their man, Bill Clinton, to instigate and carry out the destruction at Waco. They hoped to then be able to pass the illegal laws that would effectively abolish the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution in the aftermath. It is easy to identify the Jesuits and the Jesuit puppets in the United States Congress, because they are the ones that continually try to get restrictive gun legislation passed.
There was another reason for Waco that Bill Clinton disclosed April 19th and 20th of 1993. This statement was made in the Rose Garden and can be found in White House press release documents.
I want to say as I did yesterday, I am very sorry for the loss of life which occurred at the beginning and at the end of this tragedy in Waco. I hope very much that others who will be tempted to join cults and to become involved with people like David Koresh will be deterred by the horrible scenes they have seen over the last seven weeks. And I hope very much that the difficult situations which federal agents confronted there and which they will be doubtless required to confront in other contexts in the future will be somewhat better handled and better understood because of what has been learned now.
In his own words, Clinton issued a warning and a threat to anyone who would dare join a religious group that was a so-called cult. To Clinton and his agents, a cult is a group that is not part of any mainstream religious organization.
Every major religious organization has been infiltrated and taken over by the Jesuits. They want everyone to stay in the mainstream organizations so that they can more easily be indoctrinated. Anyone outside the main churches will be more difficult to brainwash. According to Ex-Jesuit priest, Alberto Rivera, all the mainstream churches were taken over by 1980. Dr. Rivera explained that when he was under the extreme oath of the Jesuits, he was told that a secret sign was to be given to the Jesuits world-wide when the ecumenical movement had successfully wiped out protestantism, in preparation for the signing of a concordat between the Vatican and the U.S.
The sign was to be when a President of the U.S. took his oath of office facing an obelisk. For the first time in U.S. history, the swearing in ceremonies were moved to the West front of the Capitol, and President Reagan faced the Washington Monument. This happened January 20, 1981. — Jack Chick, The Godfathers, Alberto Part Three, Chick Publications, page 26.
Waco was a warning not to join an independent church where the truth about the papacy and the antichrist would be exposed.
Bill Clinton declared that Waco was a warm up, and confronting religious groups would happen again! Does this sound like the words of a man who would defend the constitutional rights of U.S. citizens, or does it sound like a Jesuit who is carrying out the plans of the papacy? Remember, in the secret Congress at Chieri, it was declared,
Protestantism must therefore be utterly abolished... Catholics shall be imbued with hatred for all heretics [A heretic is anyone who does not believe the Catholic religion, anyone who opposes the pope, and anyone who believes the pope is the anti-christ].… We shall strike deadly blows at heresy.… They little think that Jesuits have in store for them the censorship gags and flames and will one day be their masters. — Hector Macpherson, The Jesuits in History, Ozark Book Publishers, Appendix I.
Bill Clinton was a Jesuit, determined to carry out the Jesuit plan of Chieri.
Pope John Paul II has stated it very clearly.
The proselytizing activity of the sects and new religious groups of America is a grave hindrance to the work of evangelization [what he means is that there are independent religious groups that are hindering the papacy’s drive to take over the world]… The success of proselytism by the sects and new religious groups in America cannot be ignored. It demands of the Church on the continent a thorough study, to be carried out in each nation and at the international level… For the response to the challenge of the sects to be effective, there is a need for an appropriate coordination of initiatives among dioceses, aimed at bringing about a more effective cooperation through shared projects which will produce better results. — Pope John Paul II, The Challenge of the Sects, Exhortation, Article 73.
All of these new religious groups have one thing in common; they all believe that the evil anti-christ system of Bible prophecy is the papacy.
Malachi Martin discusses these groups and says they
are destined to undergo a series of severe shocks and mutations as, willy-nilly, they adapt themselves to the new globalism emanating from more powerful groups. There is no way that any one of them will be able to maintain itself in any vibrancy and progressive strength unless it allows — or suffers — its provincialism to be enlarged beyond the confines it traditionally observed.… As groups they will have to face dire alternatives. Either they will become thoroughly and realistically globalized... Or, as groups, they will remain in place, diminish in numbers and influence, and finally lose their identity as operative parts in a new world order. — Malachi Martin, The Keys of This Blood, Simon and Schuster, pp. 291, 292.
In other words; everyone who goes along with the Jesuits plan for the world will be allowed to live and those who do not will experience Waco! Waco was a warning that the Jesuits want to return the world to another Dark Age in which all the world becomes the slaves of the pope. If anyone does not submit to the papacy, they will be treated like the people at Mt. Carmel.
Here is one last thought. If you were the president of the United States or the Attorney General at the time of the Waco massacre, and you did not want to poison small children with CS gas, would you have the authority to stop it? Of course you would. All you would have to do is pick up the phone. The fact that Bill Clinton and Janet Reno did not stop this atrocity is proof that it was their desire that the massacre took place.
