No News For You!!

By Fr. Robert J. Carr

Whoa!! Hold on there CBS. You have been caught again.

According to a recent AP story published at ABCNEWS.COM, Mary Mapes, the producer of this Texas National Guard piece for CBS and the producer who broke the Abu Ghirab story at CBS wields a lot of power in that network newsroom. She is also a radical feminist. That reality cannot co-exist with objectivity.

The AP quotes previous Mapes co-worker John Carlson, a former commentator at KIRO-TV who is host of a conservative radio talk show in Seattle. Carlson describes Mapes as "someone who was motivated by what she cared about and definitely went into journalism to make a difference . . . She's not the sort of person who went into journalism to report the news and offer an array of commentary."

OK then what is it that journalists do if they do not report the news and offer an array of commentary. Maybe they influence government policy.

Radical Feminist often makes people think of the ERA, Planned Parenthood, and hating men. They do not make them think of CEDAW. The Convention for the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women is a United Nations convention that seeks to do what it says. It sounds like a good idea, until we start asking the question what is defined as discrimination. Once we walk down that path we realize that the Bush Administration is with The Roman Catholic Church as enemy number one in this war on discrimination. Further, the Americans have not signed the Convention.

The Convention, which calls for lack of interference in the internal affairs of member states also requires a change in the worlds’ view on the traditional roles of men and women in society.

" . . . Change in the traditional role of men as well as the role of women in society and in the family is needed to achieve full equality between men and women." (preamble)

The Convention has within it a mandate for political war:

It is article two which allows member states to demand worldwide changes in order to ensure worldwide pubic policies "refrain from engaging in any act or practice of discrimination against women and to ensure that public authorities and institutions shall act in conformity with this obligation."

‘Radical Feminist’, therefore, also means UN warrior. This is why the realization that Mapes is a radical feminist, and not a journalist who reports stories and makes commentaries, means that CBS and most likely other organizations have turned themselves over to an unobjective force of mercenaries who will determine for governments and their citizens who has the right or not to exist. This includes Americans and especially Catholic Americans. Remember who CBS is, this is the news organization that supposedly found the documents indicating that the Pope supports pedophilia.

These are the people behind John Kerry. Their Combat Information Center is the Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.

KSG is home to:

Marshall Ganz Democratic party strategist and former union organizer (UFW). His inspiration (using the teachings of Ghandi) is what is behind the current movement to occupy churches and take down the Roman Catholic Church Aimee Carevich, former assistant to Ganz working with Voice of the Faithful to stage a revolution of the Catholic Church.

Mary Jo Bane, formerly of the Clinton Administration Department of Health and Human Services one of the major voices in the Boston Globe against the average Catholic’s right to freedom of religion. Bane's most famous quote is "We really don't know how to raise children. If we want to talk about equality of opportunity for children, then the fact that children are raised in families means there's no equality. ... In order to raise children with equality, we must take them away from families and communally raise them."

Swanee Hunt, Kerry campaign funder and founder of Women Waging Peace, a signatory organization in support of CEDAW; This list is not exhaustive.

The United States has yet to sign this convention and it is the demand of Radical Feminists that they do. Therefore, the propaganda war continues. Mary Mapes’ presence at CBS is a clear indication where CBS NEWS stands in regard to CEDAW, where CBS News is slanted and how it could have gotten involved in this debacle. It also indicates that CBS News got caught, the others are mostly like not far behind.

Further, remember who is one of the major forces behind the call to sign CEDAW. The NASW, the National Association of Social Workers. These are the people who go around deciding who is and is not a pedophile. One such social worker is Suzin Bartley head of the Massachusetts Children’s Trust Fund. Working through the Cardinal’s Blue Ribbon Commission, with the Committee for Children and the Massachusetts ...
