        I suggest you reread "Liberty Lobby, Inc. v. Dow Jones & Co, Inc" 
838 F.2d 1287 (D.C. Cir.; 1988).  "there is evidence in this record that Mr. Carto 
specifically designed the Liberty Lobby/Legion/Noontide/IHR network so as to 
divorce Liberty Lobby's name from those of its less reputable affiliates."  838 
F.2d at 1296.  The Court goes on to affirm the decision of the District COurt 
stating "We tend to agree with the district court that if the term 'anti-Semitic' has 
a core, factual meaning, that the truth of the description was proved here."  838 
F.2d at 1297.  Should you need further rereading I suggest you check out 
footnote 9, 838 F.2d at 1303 where five other cases concering your network 
are cited.

        In light of thefact that every one of the courts who have examined 
your claim that you the Institute for Ahistorical Research are an anti-Semitic 
enterprise, I find you "assurances" hollow and dishonest.

        Because it calls your credibility into question.  Your denial of that 
which has been proven time and again to impartial tribunals further challenges 
whatever tattered rags credibility you have left.
