Truth? What is Truth?

Richard Salbato -  June 15, 2010


Pilate: “Art thou a King then?” Jesus: “Thou sayest that I am a king.  For this was I born, and for this came I into the world; that I should give testimony to the truth.  Everyone that is of the truth, heareth my voice.”

Pilate: “Truth? What is truth?’

Love Truth Above All Else

Over the years I have come to believe that we must seek the truth with all our heart, our soul, our intelligence to the best of our ability and then to cling to it and love it more than our life. 

I do not mean this only in religion and faith, but in all things – science, politics, human relationships, ourselves, and the way we live our lives.  Everything must be honest and that honesty must be from investigated knowledge.  We cannot cling to and love a truth we are not sure about it or we have accepted knowledge without an intellectual investigation of the facts.

That being said, I will now say something that will offend many people, and I come to this conclusion by reading the speeches of Christ and the Apostles.

I must have charity to the truth even if it offends my friends, my family, my priest or my bishop.  When I have to pick between saying nice things to people at the expense of truth, I will be on the side of truth and not the people. 

Never Compromise Truth

There are two words I hate: compromise and expediency.  Like the Ten Commandments, not all things are without compromise, because even in the Ten Commandments, only the fist four are without any conditions and the others can be modified by the conditions of life or the situation. 

Even though I spend a great deal of time seeking the total truth on everything of interest to me, I will never come to the whole truth about anything.  The best I can do is know for sure what is not and what cannot be true.  Only God knows the entire truth as He said to Thomas Aquinas.  None the less, God complimented Thomas for the truth that he found and wrote about.


One of the gifts of the Holy Spirit is “Kindness”.  This is an interesting word to me.  When should we be kind and how do we use this gift?  When I look at this the only real time it can be called “Kindness” is when we are saying or doing something that might be offensive to others. 

If I have to tell someone that they are doing the wrong thing or I don’t agree with them, it is at this time a must do it as kind as a can. Sure, I am going to offend them, but I must do it as gentle and loving as I can.  Tone of voice, facial expressions must show love when expressing what the Bible calls “Reprimanding the sinner”, which is also a gift of the HS.

The Sin of Silence

Another aspect of truth that really hit home to me because God reprimanded me for offending this, came when I read the life of Saint Thomas More.  Before reading Saint Thomas More I would often remain silent when listening to someone spout off about things I knew to be wrong in religion, science, politics or even gossip about people.  I did this because I did not like conflict.  When I read about the great Saint’s daughter coming to visit him in his jail waiting for his execution  and tears came to my eyes. 

Let me make this brief. 

Thomas was the second highest man in England, second only to the King and loved by the King.  He was very wealthy. The King wanted a theological excuse to get a divorce and all the stupid bishops of England except one, agreed with him.  Thomas did not. The King, who loved him, said that was OK providing that Thomas remained silent about his disagreement with him.  Thomas refused.

When his daughter came to the jail, she pleaded with her father:  Just remain silent and the King will let you live and go home and we can be the loving family we have always been.”

She was crying and Thomas was crying, knowing the hardships his family would go through but he said that he could not remain silent, because: “Silence is affirmation!”

His defense of truth caused his life and destroyed his family economically.  

The Pilots of Today, who laugh at truth.

Over the last 100 years then has been a gradual dumbing down of people’s ability to think.  I think some of this is deliberate by leaders (example in Attachment 1) and some of it has to do with the mass amount of entertainment that takes up to Ten Hours a Day of our time.  Little by little people do not even care what the truth is and is not. 

What has angered me so much is the liberal news media that sounds so much like Pilate because the of the way they present news.  Regarding truth about global warming, they say the argument is over, rather than presenting truth, regarding Obama’s birth place they laugh at anyone asking the question rather than presenting the truth, regarding the government debt, they say we do not need to worry, rather than presenting any truth.  Even among the people some say they just don’t care or they never thought about it and don’t want to or they don’t want to know because if they knew they might have to change.

In my Catholic Church Bishops hide illegal immigrants and don’t want to hear that this is a sin.  When asked how a homosexual got through the seminary they will not answer.  Some disobey the Pope on many things but will not answer if confronted.  Most Catholics practice birth control and if confronted will not even give an answer as to why because no one can argue against truth.  By saying “What is truth?” they are saying “I don’t care about truth.”

Historical Violations of Truth

One of the greatest examples of truth being ignored and people not even caring is the Sixteenth Amendment, the Revenue Act of 1913, the Income tax amendment of President Wilson.  To pass this act, because it was unconstitutional, Wilson had to have a Constitutional Amendment.  The fact is that 3/4th of the states never ratified the amendment and yet the Secretary of State, Philandder Knox, fraudulently announced that it was ratified and no one checked to see if it was or not.  Wilson then used this illegal amendment to tax the richest of Americans up to 75%.

The illegal amendment reads:

"The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.”

Is it any wonder that most states did not ratify it?  I don’t care if you believe in an income tax or not, doesn’t it bother you that a president can do something so illegal and 97 years later no one is questioning it? 

Details in Attachment 2

Does it bother anyone today that President Wilson did more to destroy the constitution than anyone else in history and at a time when communists were taking over the world.  He passed the following unconstitutional acts:  the Federal Reserve Act,[3] Federal Trade Commission, the Clayton Antitrust Act, the Federal Farm Loan Act and America's first-ever federal progressive income tax in the Revenue Act of 1913 , tolerated the expansion of segregation in many federal agencies, the first draft , promoted labor union growth, supervised agriculture and food production through the Lever Act, took over control of the railroads, enacted the first federal drug prohibition, and suppressed anti-war movements. He created the League of Nations and the Treaty of Versailles, Sixteenth

Although President Calvin Coolidge is painted as a do-nothing president, he lowered the tax from 75% to 20% and eliminated it all together for most people. By 1927, only the richest 2% of taxpayers paid any income tax at all.  He cut the Federal government by 50% and in doing so not only ended a recession but created Americas greatest period of time, the Roaring Twenties. 

By freeing business and people to do their own thing, we had the most inventions, the most work, and the most fun in the history of America.  There was so much work that labor had the power over business.  If business did not treat labor well, they would quit and find another job in one day. State and local governments saw considerable growth, surpassing the federal budget in 1927.  The growth of the 20s did not cause the great depression but the Federal Reserve and the world banks did.


Why for 80 years has a false science impregnated all of society so completely when there is no scientific truth to it whatsoever, and in fact can be proved wrong?  Why did we accept it as truth when it is so stupid?  See the truth - The Truth about Evolution

Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq

One of the great examples of the media corrupting truth and using it to destroy a President is the daily, relentless accusation that our war in Iraq was based on false information that they had weapons of mass destruction.  The fact is that the information was true but after three years of false propaganda by progressives that wanted to destroy a President, when the truth came out they suppressed it.  After the original war, the head of Iraq’s Air Force came to the United States to tell the truth but no one would broadcast his proof that they did have weapons of mass destruction. Unable to get on Television or be heard by the government, he has been going from Church to Church giving his evidence. Right at the beginning of the war he was ordered to pack up all the weapons of mass destruction and he packed them into four giant cargo jets and shipped them into Syria.  Why did the news media refuse to put him on the air?     

Colored People involved in our Independence

Why in 1988 did the American History books take out the fact that many colored people fought with George Washington in the American Revolution and helped in the writing of the Constitution?  

President Kennedy Printed Money

Did you know that the year before Kennedy was shot; he started printing money as the Constitution dictates in his first move to eliminate the Federal Reserve.  Why has no one reported that – no one.  Without the internet and the Freedom of Information act we could not know this? A truth no one cares about?  Why?

Who cares? – Obama’s College

Why does it not matter to the news media that no one ever met Obama at Columbia, where he says he went to college.   While he is a great orator, why doesn't anyone in Obama's college class remember him?  Maybe he never attended class?  Maybe he never attended Columbia?  He won't allow Colombia to release his records either. Hm-m-m

Looking for evidence of Obama's past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there, but none remembered  him.  Wayne Allyn Root was, like Obama, a political science major at Columbia who also graduated in 1983.  In 2008, Root said of Obama,

"I don't know a single person at Columbia that knew him, and they all know me.  I don't have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia.  Ever! Nobody recalls him.  I'm not exaggerating, I'm not kidding. 

“At the class reunion, our 20th reunion five years ago, who was asked to be the speaker of the class? Me.  No one ever heard of Barack or Barry Obama!  And five years ago, nobody even knew who he was. Obama's photograph does not appear in the school's yearbook and Obama consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia, provide school records, or provide the name of any former classmates or friends while at Columbia.”

NOTE: Root graduated as Valedictorian from his high school, Thornton-Donovan School, then graduated from Columbia University in 1983 as a Political Science major in the same class as President Barack Obama WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE BEEN IN.

Does anyone care?

Who cares? – Obama’s Law License

Does anyone care that Obama and his wife have no law licenses? 

President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is no longer a “lawyer”.   He surrendered his license back in 2008 in order to escape charges he lied on his bar application.  Michelle Obama “voluntarily surrendered” her law license in 1993.  

Barack Obama was NOT a Constitutional Law professor at the University of Chicago. The University of Chicago released a statement in March, 2008 saying Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) “served as a professor” but he did not hold the title of professor of law.  
Who cares? – Obama’s Social Security Number

The investigators believe Obama needs to explain why he is using a Social Security number reserved for Connecticut applicants that was issued at a date later than he is known to have held employment. The Social Security website confirms the first three numbers in Obama's ID are reserved for applicants with Connecticut addresses, 040-049.

"Since 1973, Social Security numbers have been issued by our central office," the Social Security website explains. "The first three (3) digits of a person's social security number are determined by the ZIP code of the mailing address shown on the application for a social security number."

Along with his original birth certificate, Obama also has not released educational records, scholarly articles, passport documents, medical records, papers from his service in the Illinois state Senate, Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records and adoption papers.

"There is obviously a case of fraud going on here," Daniels maintained. "In 15 years of having a private investigator's license in Ohio, I've never seen the Social Security Administration make a mistake of issuing a Connecticut Social Security number to a person who lived in Hawaii. There is no family connection that would appear to explain the anomaly."

Daniels said she can't be sure if the 1890 figure has any significance. But she said it appears the number Obama is using was previously issued by the Social Security Administration.

Who cares? – Birth Place

The White House has maintained a computer-generated Certification of Live Birth, or COLB, is proof enough of Obama's Hawaiian birth, even though it has no hospital or doctor's name on it. Such documents differ from a Certificate of Live Birth which includes those details. In response to a direct question from WND, the Hawaii Department of Health refused to authenticate either of the two versions of Obama's short-form COLB, posted online – neither the image produced by the Obama campaign nor the images released by

The hospital he claims to have been born at, has no records of it.  The Chief of Elections in Hawaii has never seen proof of birth. No one in Hawaii can prove he was born. Does a President have to prove he is an American?  I think so and if you don’t care, what can I do? I can’t explain Pilot but I guess a lot of people at like that  See  Attachment 3

Who cares? – 130 Trillion debt

We now have a long turn Federal Debt (not counting personal and State debts) of 130 trillion dollars.  What does that mean?  We have over 330 million people in American and we can divide that into the 130 trillion but what does that prove.  We have only 140 million people who work and produce.  However, a large percent of that number work for the government and do not produce wealth.  An even larger number of those people do not pay taxes at all.  For those who do not care, let me remind you of the three monkeys of India, I will not see evil, I will not hear evil, I will not talk about it.  I will pretend it is not there.  They believe that if they do not see or hear a tree fall in the forest, it did not happen.

When Ronald Reagan took office after Carter, there was huge unemployment, housing was dead because of 27% interest rates, and no hope in site.  He believed the only way out of this problem was to create more jobs by making it easier for business to create them.  This is called Supply- Side Economics, creating a bigger pie.  And it worked, however, and this is important, when he passed the large tax cuts to the economy he postponed them for two months.  Those two months caused the economy to get worse.  My explanation is important.  Business realized that in two months whatsoever they did would be easier and make more money, so they just slowed down and did nothing for two months. They waited for the tax cuts. It was Reagan’s biggest mistake.

Now this is the reason this is so important.  No matter who wins the November Elections, the market will crash in December.  Because taxes will go way up in January, everyone (and I mean everyone) will take all their profits out in December, because if they wait until January they will be taxes much more than in December.  This is common sense, which is truth.

Oil Leak and common sense

There have been Oil Leaks in Saudi Arabia, Mexico, and the North Sea. In none of these cases did any oil reach the shore.  Why - because they used Tankers with skimmers to clean it up.  A skimmer is a pump that sucks up water and oil from the top of the water.  In the tanker the oil goes to the top and the water to the bottom and out the bottom of the tanker. This is so easy all the oil in the gulf could have been sucked up far from shore.  In fact many of these ships were offered to American and Obama refused them because they were not union.  Who cares, not the news media?

Cap and Trade

Considering that global warming is a lie and even environmentalists say that Cap and Trade will do nothing for global warming, why does government want it?  I know the answer, do you?

If we put trillions of dollars in alternative energy, it would never get past 7 % of our needs to even survive.  The three best solutions are electric cars, natural gas cars, bigger highways. Sugar Cane gas is a great thing but we cannot grow sugar cane and never will be able.

To convert all gas stations to natural gas would cost 17 trillion dollars, but we could convert one every two hundred miles and then all trucks could convert to natural gas and all homes that use natural gas could have NG cars.  Electric cars could charge at home but again we need stations that have chargers every 100 miles. In the end we need fossil fuel for the next hundred years and we have all we need in America if we were allowed to bring it out of the ground.  (Oil Shale)

Regarding Electric power only coal and nuclear will keep up with our needs.

This is the truth, get used to it.  If you do not agree, do not just say I disagree, but present an argument based on facts.

 Truth is a war

Ignoring truth may be peaceful but it will not go away.  In fact truth is a war between good and evil and that war will go on to the end of the world.  Those who hide from the truth are like the Germans who did not want to know what Hitler was doing.  Their failure to see the truth did not make it go away and it will catch you and you will not be ready for it.  The fact is that  75% of Americans are ignorant of what is going on because entertainment is more important. And I think this was planed many years ago.  See Attachment 1.

"In questions of power, then, let no more be said of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution." Thomas Jefferson




Attachment 1 Dumbing down America from 1913

 The following is the statements of socialists regarding truth.

Frederick Gates, director of the Rockefeller Foundation wrote in 1913: "In our dream, we have limitless resources, and the people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hand. The present educational conventions fade from our minds; and, unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive folk. We shall not try to make these people or any of their children into philosophers or men of learning or science. We are not to raise up from among them authors, orators, poets, or men of letters. We shall not search to embryo great artists, painters, or musicians. Nor will we cherish even the humbler ambition to raise up from the lawyers, doctors, preachers, politicians, statesmen, of whom we now have ample supply."

Bernard de Mandeville's work, The Fable Of The Bees, (1714) in which he wrote:

"The economic well-being of the nation depends on the presence of a large number of men who are content to labor hard all day long.  Because men are naturally lazy they will not work unless forced by necessity to do so.

    "The education of the poor threatens to rob the nation of their productivity.  Every hour these poor people spend at their books is so much time lost to society.  Going to school in comparison to working is idleness."

 If people are only brought to this level or education and existence, why would they think truth is important to seek or even relevant to their lives.

THIS IS IT…follow this link to the photo of Obama’s registration of birth in Mombasa, Kenya. I am also attaching a jpg of the registration.

As you can see, this is the real deal from attorney Taitz. She has done a wonderful job of exposing this fraud and now it’s up to us to throw this imposter the heck out of the White House! This is treason by all who have blocked this information from the public. What more do we need to prove there is a grand conspiracy to overthrow our Republic and turn it into a Communist society? This is a Constitutional cirses!
