Mayan Families Poverty Group Provide Mother’s Day Food Baskets At Lake Atitlan

Much help is needed to correct poverty needs in Western Guatemalen Highlands

A poverty help group, based in San Diego and Guatemala called Mayan Families, is asking people to help send food baskets for Mother’s Day to families in need at Lake Atitlan.

In their call for help sent to Save Lake Atitlan Mission at, the group formed in 1995 stated:

In Guatemala a Mothers work is never done. When they are pregnant they very rarely can afford to see a doctor, when they give birth, it is often at home with an untrained midwife, they usually have more pregnancies than their bodies can cope with.

Daily, they often carry either water on their heads or heavy loads of firewood on their backs, walking for long distances, often with a swaddled baby on their bodies and another small child or two by their side. Once home, they chop wood, cook over an open fire, make tortillas by hand while attending to their families needs.
At the end of a long day, going to bed often means sleeping on a woven straw mat on a dirt floor without having had enough food to feed their children or themselves.

This Mothers Day we would like to make life a little happier for them. Let’s support these impoverished Women and their families by donating a Dia de la Madre Food Basket to them.
For $35 you can give a Mothers Day Food Basket and feed a family of 10 or more.
Please consider giving a food basket to a hungry family to share in Semana Santa.

Canadian Orphans Demand Compensation for Sexual Abuse and Torture By Catholic Church

Canadian Orphans Demand Compensation for Sexual Abuse and Torture By Catholic Church

Special News Release To The Arctic Beacon

Washington DC:

The well documented but now largely forgotten Duplessis Orphans case is widely recognized as the largest case of institution-based youth sexual abuse, torture, murder and exploitation in Canadian history. There are about 3000 survivors, who as children were wrongfully put into Catholic Church run orphanages and psychiatric institutions.

While victims have received some minor compensation from the government – the victims of Catholic Church orders remain largely uncompensated for sexual abuse, torture, and human experimentation suffered at the hands of priests and nuns. Now they want an apology and justice from the Catholic Church which has so far avoided liability for its crimes.

Rod Vienneau a world renowned advocate for the Duplessis Orphans and international law expert Dr. Jonathan Levy are seeking to fashion a remedy for the surviving orphans abused by Catholic religious orders and dioceses.

According to Levy, several of the Roman Catholic orders implicated operate and operated in the United States and are subject to US jurisdiction: “This is yet another horrific chapter in the ongoing abuse scandal in the Catholic Church – the organizational perpetrators must be held accountable for their crimes against children.” One of the organizations identified as being behind the sadistic abuse is the Little Franciscans of Mary, a Roman Catholic order long resident in Worcester, Massachusetts,

The victims’ testimonies however tell the true story of the cover up and why justice is now required:

Sixty Jesuit Minutes With Jesuit Shill Anton Scalia

Sixty Jesuit Minutes With Jesuit Shill Anton Scalia

What does the head of the Supreme Court have in common with Sir Thomas Moore, a man who enjoyed burning Bible believers at the stake?

It is a sad day for America when the head of the Supreme Court is nothing more than a shill for the Vatican-led New World Order.

And Anton Scalia isn’t afraid to tell America ‘the whole truth and nothing but the truth” when it comes to his Jesuit roots because he knows most people don’t know “what the hell he is really talking about.”

Most people, of course, will think his Jesuit roots are to be applauded.

Most people will think he is most certainly a learned man trying to do the best he can under difficult circumstances.

But so did most of 16th century England think Sir Thomas Moore was to be applauded and doing the best he could.

Now Saint Thomas Moore, thanks to John Paul’s 2000 decree, and “Justice” Scalia do have much in common.

The Vatican’s Finances

The Vatican’s Finances

A tangled web of deceit, scandals and hidden loot

By Greg Szymanski, JD
April 24, 2010

A rare book only found online and sent by a reader details the complexities and diabolical nature of the Vatican’s finances.

Published in 2003, Dr. Monsenor Rafael Rodriguez Guillen’s book, entitled The Vatican’s Finances, takes a deep and dark look at the biggest money lending operation in the world, looking closely at the finances of the Vatican Band and the Holy See.

In the introduction, Guillen says:

“The Vatican has so far been less than totally frank.” That is to say, the Vatican has never ever been frankly honest, open or permitted an independent audit of her finances, which are only known unto this day by the scandals and abuses of power wherein her personages have been involved, and the money launders of their banks.”

Here is a portion of the book and the rest can be found online and will soon be posted on this web site:

Let The Good Times Roll

Goodbye America; hello marimba music

April 24, 2010

America the free and home of the brave is long gone, a term left for stories of covered wagons and people not afraid to ride shot gun.

What we have left today are a bunch of boot lickers, ready to take a government handout or free church meal at the drop of hat.

This country has turned into a cesspool of followers, their place in the pool defined by the amount of zeros in their checking accounts.

What a sad place to spend a few earthly days!

The mountains, lakes and streams of course are beautiful.

And the wildlife abounds.

In fact, ‘ve been talking lately to numerous elk, dogs and horses, most telling me they are fleeing north or south, fleeing east or west if they catch a boat — fleeing anywhere to escape the madness of the American idiots they live with.

So, where do we go from here?

I personally am following the elk and deer, either north or south, either east or west — anywhere out of this American insanity.

Here is good video explaining why I want out. Why I’d like one day to feel a bit normal again.

University of Arizona, Vatican and Jesuits Name New Telescope ‘Lucifer’

University of Arizona, Vatican and Jesuits Name New Telescope ‘Lucifer’

Housed at Mt. Graham, critics wonder are the ‘evil ones’ planning a staged end times scenario

By Greg Szymanski, JD
April 23, 2010

The University of Arizona, together with the Vatican and Jesuit Order, announced today it named its newest high-powered telescopic instrument ‘Lucifer’.

There has been a great deal of speculation, among Vatican critics, why in the first place the Jesuit Order was allowed to build a huge stellar observatory on Mt. Graham in Arizona – on holy Indian ground – in cooperation with the state-run University of Arizona.

With the naming of Lucifer, critics claim the Vatican has showed its true colors, using God and Jesus as shills for their true master — Lucifer.

According to an article in Popular Science by Rebecca Boyle the “new instrument with an evil-sounding name is helping scientists see how stars are born.”

The article went to explain the name Lucifer stands for (deep breath) “Large Binocular Telescope Near-infrared Utility with Camera and Integral Field Unit for Extragalactic Research.”

Hurricane Stan Contributed To Pollution Headaches At Lake Atitlan

Hurricane Stan Contributed To Pollution Headaches At Lake Atitlan

The region is a big tourist attraction, but also one of the poorest in Guatemala

By Greg Szymanski, JD
April 20, 2010

In October 2005, Hurricane Stan ripped through the town of Panajachel on Lake Atitlan and many lives were lost.

The storm caused great damage to infrastructure, private property and knocking out the waste water treatment plant.

Panajachel is one of the larger towns on the lake with a population estimated at over 14,000.

It also produces the largest litter and raw sewage volume on the lake, adding to the pollution that created the toxic cyanobacteria outbreak last year.

The sewage plant has yet to be repaired or replaced, meaning the untreated waste of 14,000 residents pours directly into the lake.

Contemporary Maya Spirituality: The Ancient Ways Are Not Lost

Jean Molesky-Poz’s 2006 book, headlined above, details the essence of Maya culture,

April 17, 2010

According to author Jean Molesky-Poz, the essence of the Mayan culture is rooted in their religious traditions, their oneness with the earth and their artistic representations.

In her book, Contemporary Maya Spirituality: the ancient ways are not lost, Molesky goes far beyond just documenting historical facts but gives the reader a true sense of what lies behind the Maya culture.

She also delves deeply into how ancient Maya traditions today intermingle with modern western culture and how many of the ‘old ways’ are still practiced underground for fear of persecution.

One of the more interesting parts of the book deals with a Maya birth ceremony where the family introduces the child to the Creator and he Earth simultaneously, revealing from the very beginning of life the importance of oneness with the mother earth. There ceremony brings out how the Maya cherished its young and how they realized children possess great wisdom waiting to be unlocked with the proper teaching and nurturing. Continue reading

Judge Buster Sherman Skolnick Remembered

Judge Buster Sherman Skolnick Remembered

He wasn’t afraid to strip away hypocrisy behind ‘black robes’ and get into Pope’s pocketbook

By Greg Szymanski, JD
April 15, 2010

Known as the ‘Judge Buster’, Chicagoan Sherman Skolnick once said, the most endangered species in America is an honest judge.

He wrote three short stories before he died about three honest federal judges and all three coincidentally were thrown off the bench for what has to be considered honest practices.

Before Sherman died, I being a Chicagoan as well, sat up many late nights talking with Sherman about his investigations into corruption, including the U.S. Judiciary at the highest levels.

We also talked about the Pope and how the Vatican controlled at least three major banks in America. Sherman enjoyed getting inside the pocket books of the corrupt Vatican and especially, behind the black robe of now head of the U.S. Supreme Court, Anton Scalia.

I remembered a night only a couple weeks before Sherman passed on, he told me Scalia might as well just move his office over to St. Peter’s Square. Sherman was a man who picked his words carefully, as his writings indicate.

Lake Atitlan Fishermen Ignored By “Powers That Be”

Lake Atitlan Fishermen Ignored By “Powers That Be”

Sacred lake needs immediate help and indigenous fisherman know it!

By Greg Szymanski, JD
April 12, 2010

The fishermen of Lake Atitlan know their sacred lake is in serious trouble.

These indigenous fishermen also know their livelihood is at stake if the cyanobacteria problem at Lake Atitlan isn’t corrected.

For the last three months, these fishermen have been working to clean-up Lake Atitlan, but their efforts have been ignored by the powers that be.

They have been going door to door to get support, but have not been able to get the necessary support from any big agencies or environmental groups.

In order to draw world wide attention to get the help they desperately need, we are printing below a plea on behalf of the Association of Chupup Chajil Fishworkers (which in Mayan language means tzutujil guardians of tul) of the municipality/village of San Juan La Laguna, department of Sololá.
