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
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,
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, 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
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

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? – 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 FactCheck.org.

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
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.

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.
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

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

Attachment 1 Dumbing
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.
