Robert R Butterworth, Ph.D. Says Elian Gonzales Child Removal Was Brutal and Frightening
Updated 10:43 AM ET April 22, 2000
LOS ANGELES (ENTERTAINMENT WIRE) - "The Justice Department rescue of Elian Gonzales this morning was brutal and frightening with little sensitivity for this child psychological health. Using guns and force in the middle of the night to tear Elian from his Miami home, with his caretakers hysterical and screaming will no doubt add to this child's long term trauma."
This according to child psychologist Robert R Butterworth, Ph.D. who has been following the Gonzales story since Elian was rescued and spent days in front of the Gonzales home in Miami gauging public sentiment. He has also has discussed this case on Court TV, NBC's "Hardball" "Geraldo" and ongoing interviews on MSNBC.
Butterworth who has been calling for a peaceful transition between both parties and was in favor of the reunification of Elian with his father was shocked at the goverments tacticts used this morning to remove Elian in a forceful manner.
"I cannot believe that a goverment psychologist would have approved this plan. This sounds like tactics used by Castro." Butterworth said.Contact:

PRICE OF BEING A DEMOCRAT IN 2000
As near as I can tell, to be a Democrat...
You have to believe the AIDS virus is spread by a lack of funding.
You have to believe that the same public school idiot who can't teach 4th graders how to read is qualified to teach those same kids about sex.
You have to believe that guns in the hands of law-abding Americans are more of a threat than nuclear weapons in the hands of the Red Chinese.
You have to believe there was no art before federal funding.
You have to believe that global temperatures are less affected by cyclical, documented changes in the brilliance of the Sun, and more affected by yuppies driving SUVs.
You have to believe that gender roles are artificial but being gay is natural.
You have to be against capital punishment but pro abortion on demand - in short, you support protecting the guilty and killing the innocent.

You have to believe that self-esteem is more important than actually doing something to earn it.
You have to believe the military, not politicians, start wars.
You have to believe the NRA is bad, because they stand up for certain parts of the Constitution, while the ACLU is good, because they stand up for certain parts of the Constitution.
You have to believe that taxes are too low, but ATM fees are too high.
You have to believe that Harriet Tubman, Cesar Chavez and Gloria Steinem are more important to American history than Thomas Jefferson, General Robert E. Lee or Thomas Edison.

You have to believe conservatives are racists, but that black people couldn't make it without your help.
You have to believe that the only reason socialism hasn't worked anywhere it's been tried, is because the right people haven't been in charge.

JUDICIAL WATCH RICO CASE CONCERNING LORAL, THE CLINTONS, GORE, AND THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY FUNDAMENTALLY DIFFERENT THAN CASE AGAINST TOM DELAY
WALL STREET JOURNAL EDITORIAL PAGE PUTS REPUBLICAN LOYALTY ABOVE PURSUING JUSTICE
By Judicial Watch
May 9, 2000
(Washington, D.C.) In an editorial today, the usually fine editorial page of The Wall Street Journal unfortunately gave in to its Republican instincts, in criticizing a racketeering lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch on behalf of the shareholders of Loral Corporation to redress alleged bribery and extortion for selling seats on trade missions and export licenses in exchange for campaign contributions. This action, which at its foundation seeks redress for alleged criminality, and which occurred through a RICO enterprise over time, resulted in the compromise of U.S. national security, as missile and satellite technology was transferred by the Clinton-Gore Administration to the Communist Chinese. As a result, the Pentagon and State Department now acknowledge that Chinese missiles are more accurately targeted on U.S. cities, endangering American citizens. While not taking any action against the companies involved in the scheme -- since many give to the Republican Party as well as the Democratic Party - the Cox Committee Report contains findings which square with the predicate actions of racketeering activity alleged in the Judicial Watch RICO complaint. However, The Wall Street Journal editorial page, and which admittedly does not like the RICO law, unnecessarily leaped at the opportunity to support Mr. Delay and his fellow Republicans by stating:
Ironically, Democrats properly deplored a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch, alleging that President Clinton and the DCCC violated RICO by accepting $1.5 million in contributions from Loral Space Corp. CEO Bernard Schwartz. Justice investigator Charles La Bella did recommend an independent counsel for President Clinton over the Schwartz contributions, but neither he nor anyone else suggested filing RICO charges.
Ironically, The Wall Street Journal's editorial page's admits that while Charles La Bella "did recommend an independent counsel for President Clinton over the Schwartz contributions, neither he nor anyone else" in the "government" took enforcement action to rectify the severe harm to U.S. national security.
"Judicial Watch, a group that represents American citizens, did take action, and its action is not based on any allegiance to a political party. By bringing an unsound politically-motivated case against Mr. Delay and the Republican Party, the Democratic Party has again scared off Republicans and their supporters, such as The Wall Street Journal editorial page, through the tactics of mutually-assured destruction," stated Judicial Watch Chairman and General Counsel Larry Klayman.
On May 8, Judicial Watch released this:
Judicial Watch Lawsuit Against Loral, Schwartz, Clintons, DCCC, Gore, Huang And Others For RICO Much More Serious
Proving that there really is a liberal media bias, while the lawsuit of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee ("DCCC") against Representative Tom Delay has received widespread coverage over the last few days, Judicial Watch's case on behalf of the shareholders of Loral Corporation against Bernard Schwartz, the Clintons, Al Gore, the Democratic Party, and others, which the DCCC essentially copied as to form, received little attention.
Judicial Watch brought this derivative action under the allegedly illegal scheme, conjured up by the Clintons, Al Gore, and the Democratic Party, to not only sell seats on Department of Commerce trade missions but also export licenses to transfer high technology to the Communist Chinese and others. By the accounts of the Pentagon and State Department, this harmed U.S. national security.
Judicial Watch's lawsuit was filed in November of 1998, yet received scant attention from the liberal media. It continues in the courts and represents a potent cause of action to redress the sellout of U.S. national security interests for campaign contributions. Ironically, the lawsuit will also touch Republicans, since some of the companies involved in the sellout gave more heavily to the Republicans than did the Democrats ? such as Hughes Corporation, which committed similar actions as Loral. This explains Republican reticence in seeking prosecutions against the companies.
"When an 'establishment entity' takes action, it gets coverage; when the American people take action, it is dismissed as less significant. With other recent cowardice by the Republican Party over Janet Reno's conduct in the Elian Gonzalez affair, and with the continuing criminality of the Clinton-Gore Administration, it should now be apparent that the torch has been passed to the American people to legally take action to restore ethics, morality, and rule of law to our country. The American people should forget about the political candidates - since most of them are virtual frauds - and, like the 'Boston Tea Party' in 1773, take matters into their own legal hands. Two hundred twenty-seven years later, the American people must use the courts to wage a "Second American Revolution."stated Judicial Watch Chairman and General Counsel Larry Klayman and President Thomas Fitton.

Industry Group and Seven Police Firearms Manufacturers Sue Government Officials--Conspiracy Alleged By The National Shooting Sports Foundation
(SPECIAL TO: ALL MEDIA For Immediate Release)
Wednesday, April 26, 2000
(WASHINGTON, D.C.) -- The National Shooting Sports Foundation and seven police firearms companies today filed suit in federal court against Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Andrew Cuomo, New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal and mayors and other officials of 14 municipalities, charging them with an illegal conspiracy in restraint of trade and in violation of the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution.
"The lawsuit arises from a politically-motivated scheme in which these bureaucrats have sought to bully law enforcement professionals into buying handguns based not on the quality or safety of the product, but on capitulation by the manufacturer to a regulatory agenda concocted by these officials," Robert Delfay, President of the NSSF, stated. "We are here to expose a plan that brazenly places political self-interest above police and citizen safety."
"These local officials have tried everything from litigation to economic extortion to compel compliance on a national level with their own individual ideas about gun design, ownership and distribution," Delfay said. "That is wrong by any measure of law, ethics or fairness. Our democratic process is being perverted, the power vested in our elected leaders is being ignored and the Constitution is being trampled upon by HUD Secretary Cuomo and other defendants who have formed an improper alliance with a band of lawyers to sue us into submission."
The suit by NSSF and the firearms manufacturers asks a federal court in Atlanta, site of many of the actions undertaken in furtherance of the conspiracy, to:
"An anti-gun agenda does not excuse anti-democratic behavior," Delfay stated. "The people of the United States have placed the authority to regulate firearm design and distribution in the hands of Congress, not in the hands of a small contingent of self-chosen politicians and their attorneys."
Delfay also distributed letters from the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) and the Law Enforcement Alliance of America (LEAA) rejecting the Administration's plan. "The top concern of any law enforcement agency handling purchasing firearms is officer safety, not adherence to a particular political philosophy," stated the FOP. "Law enforcement officers should not be used as political pawns," wrote LEAA.
"This is not about locks on guns or even gun safety. This is about Eliot Spitzer telling a homeowner in Iowa what gun he or she can buy, from whom and how," Delfay said.NSSF is the voice of the firearms industry with over 1,800 members who are involved in all aspects of the shooting sports. The firearms companies involved in the suits are Beretta U.S.A. Corp., Browning Arms, Inc., Colt's Manufacturing, Inc., Glock, Inc., SIG Arms, Inc., Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc., and Taurus International Manufacturing, Inc.----

COURT REFUSES REQUEST BY CLINTON-GORE WHITE HOUSE TO DELAY E-MAIL SEARCH
April 28, 2000
Judge to Order Expedited E-mail Search, Questions Clinton-Gore White House Motives
Court to Only Temporarily Postpone Request for Evidentiary Hearing
(Washington, DC) A federal court judge ruled yesterday that he would order the Clinton White House to begin searching e-mails and related evidence in the Filegate $90 million class-action lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch on behalf of those Republicans and others whose FBI files were illegally taken and misused by the Clinton White House. Hillary Rodham Clinton is a defendant in the lawsuit.
The judge, the Honorable Royce C. Lamberth, denied Clinton Administration efforts to derail discovery in the lawsuit by ordering the Clinton White House to come up with a plan to search other e-mails and other evidence that had been hidden from the Court and other investigators for nearly two years. Judge Lamberth said that he would be distrustful of Clinton White House experts' testimony on how long such a search would take, as they would have "political motives" to stall the search. He said the evidence must be produced quickly and ordered the Clinton-Gore White House to come up with an expeditious plan of action. Judge Lamberth made it clear he would not accept the 170 day timetable that the Clinton-Gore White House had tried to sell to Congress.
Judge Lamberth also said that will only temporarily postpone considering Judicial Watch's request for contempt and evidentiary hearings to delve into the e-mail scandal, in which computer contractors for the Clinton White House were threatened with jail to keep potentially millions of e-mails hidden from the Court, the American people, and investigators. Judicial Watch believes that the Clinton Justice Department can't investigate itself and its political masters at the Clinton White-Gore House. Additionally, Robert Ray's Office of Independent Counsel's grand jury investigation of the matter is tainted because, among other fatal flaws, it is conducting an inquiry jointly with Clinton Department of Justice ? one of the very entities it ought to be investigating.
Judge Lamberth also said at the court hearing yesterday that he sought and received assurances from the Clinton-Gore Justice Department that Lee Radek, who is Bill Clinton's Chief of the Public Integrity Section at the Justice Department, was not involved in any criminal probes of the burgeoning Clinton-Gore White House e-mail scandal.

The Boy From Brazil By Steve Myers May 1, 2000
The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive and judiciary, in the same hands, whether on one, a few or many and whether hereditary, self appointed or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.
James Madison, The Federalist Papers, No. 47
Maybe you saw Franklin Schaffner's 1978 movie "The Boys From Brazil", in which Gregory Peck gave a convincing portrayal of Dr. Joseph Mengele, the notorious Nazi "Angel of Death", who was discovered to be alive and well after the Second World War, living deep in the Brazilian jungle, and still performing the bizarre human medical experiments for which he was infamous.
The story line of the movie follows how he took DNA material from Adolf Hitler and manufactured clones of Der Fuehrer. He then arranged for each of 94 boys to be born into, or adopted by, a family that closely resembled Hitler's own family, in an assortment of different countries, all with a deceased or absent father and an indulgent, doting mother, in the hope of eventually producing exact replicas in thinking, actions and power, of Adolf Hitler himself. Thus would the Fuehrer return from the grave to worldwide power. Ironically, the story was written by Ira Levin, who is Jewish.
It has never been actually determined whether the story was fact, fiction, or a combination of the two, but the world has just been given strong evidence that one of the 94 clones may indeed have been born just after the Second World War and raised in the prescribed way by a single, doting mother. He was born on August 19, 1946, in Hope, Arkansas.
Like Adolf Hitler, he had a deceased or absent father (depending on which story you believe), a violent temper, and a fondness for abusing women and power. Permit me to quote from Exegesis of July 14, 1998: "Many folks have forgotten that Adolf Hitler did not seize power in 1933. He was elected by popular vote in an election a great deal less rigged than the last US Presidential election. Sixty-five years later, few have even noticed that the United States stands perilously close to dictatorship, a tragic irony given the immense dimensions of the Jewish presence in Hollywood, the media and the White House. Remarkably, few Americans have the slightest clue that such a tragedy is about to occur."
Still quoting: "The so-called media will probably breathe not a word about it when it happens. They will bear equal responsibility with the perpetrator for the impending loss of liberty. If it is true that more Americans get their lies from ABC than from any other source, as is claimed, Disney, which owns ABC, will be guilty of the greatest complicity, and CNN will really owe the American people an apology - in addition to apologies for the countless other lies they and the networks have broadcast over the years: the lies of trivia, the lies of false opinion polls, the lies of bias, the lies of nothink and doublethink, and the lies of omission." Those words were written almost two years ago. At least you had been warned.
So it was that we recorded at that time that the descent of the greatest nation on earth had begun: the United States was slipping into a fascist tyranny, part of a one-world government. The occasion on which we wrote those words was Mr. Clinton's attempt to seize absolute power via Executive Order 13083, which was later defeated, thanks to the efforts of good folks like you. The order would have given the President the ability to do anything he wished without being subjected to the constraints of the Checks and Balances imposed by the Constitution to safeguard liberty. Phrases were included like "uniform national standards" and "regulatory goals", which should send chills up the spine. The goal of a free people is the elimination of regulations and standards, but tragically, America is no longer free.
History will record that, on April 22, 2000, at 2319 NW Second Street in Miami, the home of Lazaro Gonzalez, Bill Clinton had his Krystallnacht. At 5:15 am, his foul-mouthed storm troopers ensured that fascism was no longer merely knocking on America's door: it didn't knock at all. Rather, it burst right through the door during the night, using a battering ram, tear gas, pepper spray and submachine guns, to abduct a child from freedom to slavery, shattering their windows, damaging their home, and smashing a statue of the Blessed Mother as they went.
And to make it even worse, this outrage took place on Easter Saturday, one of the holiest days of the Christian year, orchestrated by the very same Fuehrer who declined to bomb Iraq during Ramadan for fear of offending the Iraqis. Of course, they weren't the slightest bit offended by being bombed on a non-holy day! One wants to laugh and weep at the same time.
The main difference between November 10th, 1938 and April 22, 2000 is that this time, to their eternal shame, Jews are predominant in the circle of the perpetrators and apologists, not the victims. This time, as was foreshadowed at Columbine, the church shootings in Fort Worth, and countless other examples, the victims are Christians, and those who believe in liberty and the Constitution of the United States.
Let me quote again from Exegesis of July 14, 1998: "You don't believe this is happening? Why? Because the language sounds innocuous enough? Yet did you believe the deaths of Ron Brown, Vincent Foster and 105 (now 114) other Clinton associates? They're all very, very dead. Did you believe Princess Diana could be murdered so blatantly? She's dead too. Did you believe that innocent civilians could be slaughtered at Waco, Oklahoma City, and in numerous "accidents", plane crashes and bombings? They're all extremely dead.
When you look at what Mr. Clinton and his global associates have already accomplished, the truth begins to glimmer through the innocuous language. As Hayek observed: "Few traits of totalitarian regimes are so characteristic as the complete perversion of language." (The Road to Serfdom, 1944). And there has been no greater pervert, especially of language, than Bill Clinton."
"Like Hitler, Clinton has come to be deluded by his own prowess. After all, if he can get away with a few audacious crimes, why not order more? And like Hitler, he rose to power claiming to be defending the poor and the downtrodden, when in reality, he is the one who has been goose-stepping all over the rights and liberties of the poor, downtrodden, American people." Likewise, the Miami raid was executed, claims Fuehrer Clinton, "to uphold the law", the same law which said the Justice Department should leave Elian Gonzalez where he was, and the very same law over which the very same Fuehrer has so blatantly trampled for most of his time in public "service" - and I use the word loosely.
Hitler also wrote "a great number of basically different enemies must always be described as belonging to the same group, so that as far as the mass of your followers is concerned, the battle is being waged against a single enemy. This strengthens the belief in the rightness of your cause." Thus can Fuehrer Clinton speak meaningless phrases like "family values", "the best interests of the child", and "a vast right wing conspiracy".
Let's switch back to present-day reality: Mr. Clinton knows well that his worst enemies are clear-thinking, Bible-reading, honest folks, especially those who are conversant with the Constitution he so flagrantly disregards, and even more so, those folks who have switched off the propaganda media, and in particular the three stooges on the nightly news, who could have taught Hitler's public relations chief, Josef Goebbels, a thing or two about lies and deceit. If you're going to lie, they reason, make it a whopper!
In the photograph we shall never forget, notwithstanding the media's best efforts, you saw the thugs of Fuehrer Clinton's authoritarian police state, the obscenity-spewing, armed government thugs, servants of the nation, whose salary you pay, in the process of spending three quarters of a million dollars of your money by attacking and invading the private home of honest, law-abiding, unarmed civilians in the middle of the night, without a search warrant, for the sole purpose of destroying Elian Gonzalez's deceased mother's cherished dream for her son to grow up in freedom. The boy's mother gave her own life and risked her son's life for liberty, while the Clinton regime risked it to ensure that the child is returned to the slavery of Fidel Castro's Cuba. Is this logical? Did Moses lead the Children of Israel out of the Promised Land into Egypt? It is as unnatural and demonic as anything connected with Fuehrer Bill Clinton.
On December 21, 1998, Exegesis described Mr. Clinton as "the psychopathic Prince of Demons". Of course, I was vilified and ridiculed and for that remark. I didn't care then and I don't care now because I know the truth when I see it. But let me ask you this: after last week's events, dare anyone now challenge that description? I think not. He is obviously a psychopath and is obviously evil.
America's problem, though, is much greater than the tyrannical Fuehrer Clinton. Long ago, the Two-Party/Media axis seized power in America, and did it so subtly that most Americans have no clue as to what happened. To them, and to all liberty-loving people everywhere, we can only issue another urgent call to switch off the television and awaken. Your reverie is over. Your liberty, indeed the nation you love, is being stolen from you by evil-intended, atheist, globalists. It isn't simply a matter of replacing the out of control, anti-Christian, Clinton junta with a Bush Administration. The Elite are way ahead of you, and that's why, as we reported on January 24, 1997, they chose George W. Bush to succeed Clinton.
The task seems overwhelming. Surely, we cannot fight this battle alone, but must summon help. Fortunately, help is readily available, if only we will seek it: "Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." (Ephesians 6: 10-12)
This battle can be won only on our knees, because no tyrant, not even Bill Clinton, is a match for the King of Kings. And we may be quite certain that hasn't escaped the attention of Bubba from Brazil and his nefarious globalist masters, both earthly and otherwise. So why are we waiting to claim God's victory? Let us get on our knees now, and pray for deliverance from tyrannical evil.
