MORE INSIDE STORY ON WACO MASSACRE
with commentary by Tony Alamo
Editor's note: The following document was received by fax at the local CONTACT offices. The source-writer of the document is unknown. With a little editing to clarify some of the sentence structure, we are sharing it here because the writing is thought provoking and full of the insights that careful investigations can reveal.
AN ALTERNATIVE REPORT
MT. CARMEL SIEGE
The information for this report was gathered by a group of concerned citizens from the city of Waco, and the states of Colorado, Florida, and Texas. As investigators, we established very reliable sources for collecting facts from alert Waco residents, from Davidians released from jail, from TV dish and satellite monitoring organizations, and from unnamed others.
In the aftermath of the Mt. Carmel siege and fire, the remaining Branch Davidians, still living in Waco, are located: in jail; in the Salvation Army (a jail- it is contracted with the Bureau of Prisons); or in the Britteny Hotel. Generally speaking, most of the men are in jail, charged with conspiracy to commit murder with few exceptions. Paul Fatta is charged with possession and intent to manufacture illegal automatic weapons. Most of the folks in the Salvation Army and at the Britteny Hotel are released on bonds as material witnesses. Oliver Gyarfas, Jr., an Australian, has been jailed for over 3 months as a material witness without being charged with a crime, without deposition, and now has been transferred to an INS prison with a $10,000 cash bond; no bail bond is accepted. The customs agents moved him from Waco to near San Antonio, as another dirty trick of the Government. The atrocities continue.
Slowly we begin to see through the smoke and mirrors of the parallel or hidden government's spin doctors. The Waco Tribune-Herald protests strongly against there being advance knowledge of the ATF assault. However, just out of the blue, the day before the raid on February 27, 1993, they ran the front page article on David Koresh and all the lies of child abuse, child sex, polygamy, illegal guns, etc. Then the Baylor University professors of Theology pontificated the horrors of the Koresh Cult—which propaganda was then sucked up by the "Baal-orized" residents. The Branch Davidians and David Koresh were declared guilty the day BEFORE the raid. Now, we see at least 20 billboard signs around Waco, paid for by the ATF, thanking the potential jurors for the up coming trials.
The congressional hearings on the ATF assault on Mt. Carmel were another FBI-ATF sham where the elected officials heard an edited version of the 911 tapes lasting only 30 minutes. We have been able to get copies of the full 2-1/2 hours of 911 tapes called-in from the Davidians recorded at the Waco Police station. The Waco 911 center has 4 master reels to record simultaneous phone calls.
We have 2 tapes of the conversations between the Police and the ATF during the cease-fire negotiations. There was no direct line between the two forces; the Police at the 911 center relayed the demands of each side. After going over these tapes many times, and correlation with the video tapes, it is obvious that the ATF fired first; they held no regard for the women and children; they used hand grenades; the helicopters had automatic guns and were firing on the building where the women and children were; they were deceptive in the cease-fire negotiations; and they changed such plans without notice; and other charades.
We've had discussions with several people who survived the fire and who reveal interesting facts. The dam-age to the east side of the building (AWAY FROM the TV cameras) was much greater than elsewhere and included part of the ceiling falling down. On the second floor, where the women and children were gathered, there was no sensation of being gassed with CS gas, but rather, an unusual odor not necessarily of a petroleum-based product. Several experts suggest that the fluid could have been liquid napalm. None of the women said they had to wear gas masks. When the M-6Q tank retriever was crushing the building, it actually knocked the structure off its foundation, which jammed the doors and most of the windows. Once the fire got started, the heat was so intense that few of the women and children could move quick enough to avoid the flames. Since the normal escape routes were crushed, the only option was to jump out the second story window or a hole in the wall.
After viewing the videos of the fire, taken from different angles, there are several events proving the government's intent. In a TV tape "not available" before, it is plainly visible that a tank had a flame thrower torching the Mt. Carmel building seconds before the fire broke out.
The fire produced a super-heated flame which should have burned clean. However, the smoke was almost black, indicating an incineration agent was burning. The Beilmead Fire Department members were watching the TV when the fire broke out and tried to call the FBI with no success. Eventually, the call did come through to send out the fire trucks. It was almost an hour after the fire started until the equipment arrived on the scene.
There are three large lakes on the Mt. Carmel grounds which were used to pump a 6" flow of water onto the then-smoldering remains. At 4:48 P.M. of that same day, it was easy to see, on the video, that new, large plywood boxes (approximately 6' x 3' x 2') were being carried into the burned-out crime scene. It took several men to carry them. The next day a 50-calibre machine gun tripod was visible on the screen where there WAS NONE the day before. Thus, the planting of the bogus evidence was complete.
We've acquired a copy of the evidence property list gathered and secured by the Texas Rangers–381 pages in all. It will take months to sift through all of the items. However, the most interesting evidence may be the videos taken from the helicopters during the attack.
On the subject of David Koresh and the life in Mt. Carmel before February 28, 1993, we asked many survivors what it was like. This was not a commune or a cult. Everyone had their own possessions and had freedom to come and go as they wished. They were home schoolers and home birthers. They operated several businesses including auto-repair, military surplus, and gun sales. Every working person was a second tither which helped to support the center. They are all devout Bible readers with amazing recall of the Scriptures. They believe that David was the chosen lamb by God. They believe that God's name is Yahweh and that Yahshua is the name for Christ. Saturday is their Sabbath. Most of the Branch Davidians believe that David will re-appear on Earth in the flesh. They strongly deny that he had more than one wife or that he had sex with adolescent girls.
We talked with three children who came out before the fire. These children appeared to be alert and extremely well adjusted compared with any children of their ages. The youngest was a 9 year-old girl who was drawing pictures in her note-pad while we had a discussion with her concerning the network TV production of the so-called ambush. Her comment was that the whole thing was a lie except that the building looked like her house. We asked the kids where they were when the ATF attacked. The little blond girl said she saw and heard bullets coming through the ceiling, so she jumped under her bed. The two boys took off down the hall to the stair-well.
To a person, the remaining Branch Davidians are humble, kind, generous, and hardy people who, to various degrees, are traumatized by the events which have happened to them. They are extremely supportive of each other and especially to the ones still incarcerated. Most of them visit somebody in jail on visiting days. We have given them all the patriotic literature they can handle, resulting in their achieving a better understanding of ourcriminal government.
It is difficult to express the shock and dismay these people have. They have lost their friends, family, home, and society–just like the situation with war refugees. Sheila Martin lost her husband and 4 children; Mary Belle Jones lost her husband, a son, a daughter, a son-in-law, and 3 grandchildren. Welcome to AMERIKA.

HOW THE WACO KIDS WERE SAVED FROM CHILD ABUSE
What do we tell our children?
After the fire and brimstone our children saw live from Waco, how do we explain what really happened? After the FBI and the ATF agents pick through the ashes and the pathologists interpret the charred remains, what do we tell them about what "their government" did?
After the psychiatrists and psychologists complete their clinical critique of religious fanaticism and psychopathic behavior, how do we account for the "normal" behavior of the federal officials who ordered their assault?In the final hours insidethe Koresh property before the fires began, 24 children suffered intense nausea, dizziness and a painful stinging over their bodies if the brutal gas worked as the federal authorities expected it to work. This was done to save them from child abuse.
said Benjamin C. Garrett, executive director of the Chemical and Biological
Arms Control Institute in Alexandria, Va., "they would have been overcome
with vomiting in a final hell."
That's why the gas has been banned by the international conventions of warfare. We can still use it on our 6-year-olds, however.
This is the Fearless Fosdick approach to fighting crime. When the comic-strip detective was assigned to find a can of poisoned beans that a madman had loosed in the city, he toured the supermarkets, shooting every customer he saw reaching for a can of beans. He finally discovers the can of beans in a warehouse. "The joke's on me," he said, accepting responsibility.
Children, who have no trouble observing that the emperor wears no clothes, are less likely than the large number of gullible adults identified by pollsters to believe that David Koresh is the only person who can be blamed for this tragedy.
The children saw the tanks. They saw the fire. They saw the calm that proceeded both.
You've got to keep
it simple and precise when teaching children. So how do we translate the
president when he says that Janet Reno conducted her duties "in an
"Appropriate?" Apt? Fit? Proper?
Youngsters, whose curiosity dwells on specifics, will also want to know what the president meant when he said federal officials "had reason to believe that the children who were still inside the complex were being abused significantly."
"Reason to believe" is not the same as having reasons, or facts, as any adolescent will tell you when a parent uses that phrase. ("I have reason to believe you're smoking pot," is not the same as "Gotcha!") FBI officials say, despite White House assertions, they had no recent evidence of child abuse.
Children, who are taught to gather as much information as possible before coming to aconclusion, might not under-stand exactly why the president spoke to Janet Reno for only 15 minutes before he gave her the OK to gas (and burn) the Branch Davidians.
"I didn't have a four- or five- hour detailed briefing by the FBI," the president said. Well, why not? Presidents are busy people, of course, but gas (and burning flames) is not healthy for children. (Nor is gas good for adults or are these "governments" actions legal according to the U.S. Constitution, and moreover are they legal in the eyes of Almighty God.)
George Stephanopoulos, the White House spokesman, justified the assault because "It is very, very clear that those children were being abused, that they were being held against their will. Protecting the kids was the ultimate rationale for going in."
Fearless Fosdick couldn't
have said it better.
TONY ALAMO’S COMMENTARY
An August 14, 1993 article in the Waco Tribune Herald reports "Agents misled superiors in raid," but Janet Reno and President Clinton stated in the national media at the first that they took full responsibility. The siege went on for many days. It would seem that no one was misled, with the exception of the general public.
The President and the Attorney General's stance against Christianity is clear. The agents that "misled them," the Herald reported, would conveniently be retiring soon anyway. They will surely receive a routine reward for taking "the fall."
Isn't it incredible that when government officials slaughter people their fall guys merely lose their jobs? This is certainly not Biblical justice or American constitutional justice. Just think, the government now has the unmitigated gall to try to put on trial the Branch Davidian survivors for murder.
Why should the taxpaying American people be intimidated, frightened, and falsely accused by our hired government servants (especially if these government servants are the criminals)1 whom we pay good salaries to serve us, according to the rules of the U.S.Constitution, to keep law and order in our land? The master should not be afraid of the servant, even if he becomes a bully, a gangster, or a murderer. Why should we hire or retain servants who destroy us and don't obey our rules, based on God's rules?
For instance, Janet Reno, our Attorney General initially stated repeatedly that she took full responsibility for the Waco massacre. Chronicles Magazine, April 1993 issue, reports "Many homosexuals in Miami, Florida have contacted us and told us Reno's lesbianism is common knowledge among the gay community." Is it Reno's knowledge that Christians teach lesbianism is a sin the reason she ordered the massacre, and the reason she proudly bragged she was fully responsible for it?
Chronicles also stated that the Senate judiciary committee had told John B. Thompson, Janet Reno's opponent, when she was the Attorney General designate, that "the committee had preliminary evidence unexpectedly fall into its lap that Reno has been pulled over five times while 'driving under the influence' in Dade County, (Miami, Florida)."
It was also reported in the New York Guardian, as well as in a 393 page book entitled Votescam: The Stealing of America, by investigative reporters James and Kenneth Collier, that Reno deliberately obscured vote fixing violations and had people jailed for bringing the vote scam to light.
Vice-President Gore now suggests all U.S.law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, the Secret Service, the ATF, and the IRS, among others be under this reported drunken, vote fixing lesbian's command.
A weekly Miami newspaper, Home News, reported the voting fraud they exposed caused them to lose a great number of advertisers because of overt political pressure. Its publisher, Jim Mackenzie, was shot as he walked up his driveway one evening. Votescam: The Stealing of America, published in 1992 by Victoria House Press, is available in better book stores everywhere. This book explains the entire Reno problem, including the Collier's publicized video evidence of vote fraud. They laid the blame on Janet Reno, who was at the time responsible for investigating vote fraud, rather than jailing people for bringing it to her attention.
If Reno and the entire administration were not so constantly and viciously with such deadly force attacking harmless and innocent Christians, it certainly would not be so necessary to investigate and report our findings to you. The Bible states it's not good to be ignorant of your enemy. "Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices" (II Corinthians 2:11).
Should we hire and be intimidated by people such as Reno, the President, and the rest of the administration with their tainted and checkered back-grounds, and their apparent desire to not change and not honor the Godly Constitution they swore to uphold? Is this the class of people we want working for us? Are these the people who will insure that our U.S.Constitution, the law of our land, is kept? I for one say "No!!!"
According to American law, we the people are king of our land. Government servants, are just servants and are to be held in check by the U.S.Constitution. If they would have kept the U.S.Constitution this would have prevented the Waco Massacre and would eliminate the future slaughter of other innocent people who profess Christianity. Enforcement of the law, not lawlessness, must be kept. According to the Bible sinners are not to rule over the saints but the saints are to rule the nations by God's Word (His Laws)(Deuteronomy 15: 6, Revelation 2: 26-27). There is hope of God's tender mercy for the repentant sinner. Jesus declares, "For God sent not His son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved" (John 3:17). This means that there is yet mercy for the repentant murderer, lesbian, homosexual,2 drunkard, as well as the fornicator, adulterer (adulteress), prostitute, pimp, drug dealer or user, vote fixer, thief, liar, and all other repentant sinners that forsake their sins and live for Christ. All these must repent and become born of the Spirit that they may be qualified to rule the nations according to the high standard commanded by God of His children through the tender mercies of God's love. According to God, love is the keeping of God's commandments (I John 5:3). Therefore, according to God's love and tender mercies, we obediently pray for the repentance and salvation of the souls of the President, Janet Reno, the entire administration, as well as the repentance and salvation of the souls of everyone in the world. The administration and the world will not know they are doing evil unless they are told. "How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?" (Romans 10:14).
My mission is to preach repentance and salvation, through the blood of Jesus, through His work in this world and on the cross to every creature in the world as Jesus commanded every preacher to do (Mark 16:15). Christ did His work so that all of us, if we follow Him, will not spend eternity in Hell.
A position in this world's secular government, which is obviously designed to exterminate Christians, American patriots, and others who are repugnant to the Vatican one-worlders, will not be worth paying for with an eternity of misery in Hell. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23). Repent and believe the Gospel, the real truth from the real God. Ask Christ into your heart. His kingdom is not of this world, and neither is yours if you will be in Heaven eternally with Him.
The trouble in the world today is not caused by God but Satan. It is obvious that the Vatican government's hypocrisies are wearing down the patience of the American people, who really wish to see problems resolved constitutionally. America and the world needs to realize once and for all that problems will never be solved with Catholic hypocrisy or brutality. Jesus told Peter that his acknowledgment of the fact that Jesus was the Solid Rock, the Son of the living God, was and still is the reason Peter or anyone else could and still can receive the keys of entry into the kingdom of God (the kingdom of Heaven). The Apostle Peter called Jesus the Solid Rock3, at whom everyone is offended, because of Christ's doctrine of having to keep all of His commandments in order to get into Heaven.
Having to deny oneself and take up Christ's cross of suffering every day is the most offensive message Christ tells the world. The very knowledge that this is the true route to Heaven, when known, is called "the pearl of great price."4 Christ pulls no punches by telling the world the worst of Christianity first, before the wearing of the crown which comes later through obedience to the duty of suffering, which tries or tests men most. "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall SUFFER persecution" (II Timothy 3:12).
Peter was called by Christ Cephas, one of the many chips off of the Rock. "And did all drink the same spiritual drink: forthey drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that ROCK WAS CHRIST" (I Corinthians 10:4). Peterwas not called Peter, the rock, as the Catholic cult's heresy has quacked, gaggled, and brayed falsely for so many years.
Every repentant born-again Christian has the keys that unlock the gate of heaven. The true Christian church is "the body of Christ" not the Catholic cult. The cult claims that Protestantism started with Martin Luther. The Scriptures say that Christ and those who follow Him were then and still are today the true infallible church of God. This is the true Christian church that never exalts Mary to deity's heights, but exalts Christ. This church started initially with Christ and His apostles, with the Apostle Paul who founded the churches a few years after the death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ, as recorded in the New Testament. The Catholic cult claims itself, with all of its sins, to be the infallible church of God. This cult claims that the true Christian church began with Martin Luther, who was born hundreds of years after Paul founded the true Christian churches in Europe. The heresies and hypocrisies of the Catholic cult are endless.
can trust the Lord in this world with your life and in eternity at the judgment
bar of God with your soul. Start trusting Him today by first becoming born
again of the Spirit. To become born into the spiritual realm with God through
Christ Jesus our Lord, say this prayer:
My Lord and my God, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God. 2 I believe that He died on the cross and shed His precious blood for the forgiveness of all my sins. 3 I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit 4 and that He sits on the right hand of God at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart and I invite You into my heart, Lord Jesus. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that You shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 You will not turn me away, Lord Jesus, You will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because Your Word, the Bible says so. 8 Your Word says that You will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that You have heard me, and I know that You have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank You, Lord Jesus, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as You command and sin no more. 11
You've just completed the first step in a series of five steps which are necessary to receive salvation. Your second step is to deny yourself and take up the cross daily for the purpose of mortifying yourself, that is, for putting to death your own will, your soulful self, and the world with all of its lusts. All these must be baptized into the death of Christ.
Step three is your resurrection from the satanic life of Adam unto the sinless life of Christ. Step four is your ascension into a position of authority to reign for God on earth, and the fifth step is to reign for God on earth to the end for the purpose of bringing about the kingdom of Heaven on earth. You must learn the Word of God, then submit yourself and do what the Word says, so that the Church and the world may see evidence of your submission to God's Word, His order, and His authority in and by you.
Praise the Lord. May God reward you abundantly.
