Democrat Politics Hits a New Low with Despicable Ad Against Ed Gillespie and His Supporters

The Unibomber was a Democrat. The ball field shooter was a Democrat. Violence against Trump supporters (including minorities) was rampant during the campaign and continues. And now these Democrats have the audacity to imply that Republicans want to murder minorities? Many conservatives are minorities or have minority family members. Our families are the melting pot. And pro-lifers, unlike Democrat abortion extremists, dedicate themselves to saving babies of all colors.

For the party that advocates the murder of children, especially minority children, to use children in this way is truly despicable. This should lose Northam votes, and anybody who votes for him because of it, I call you out as bigots! Blind bigots who let the party that targets children for murder before birth use you as fodder at the voting booth.

Halloween Warning! For a Safe and Politically Correct Halloween Follow These Rules.

To avoid public shaming, remember, kids (and adults), these costumes are banned.

  • Creepy clowns (unless wearing a Donald Trump mask)
  • White Disney princes and princesses. They celebrate white privilege.
  • Brown Disney princes or princesses, gypsies, geishas, Indians, etc. That is cultural appropriation and/or racially insensitive.
  • No animals -- That is animal appropriation and what animal wouldn't be insulted by being imitated by a human.
  • Witches. It is insulting to Wiccans and New Agers.
  • No guns, light sabers, pitchforks, swords, knives, etc. They celebrate violence. 

2017 Kentucky All State Choir Sings the National Anthem -- Every Night

"Every night of the All State Choir conference at about 11pm, all of the high school singers taking part in the KMEA conference come out to the balconies of the 18 story Hyatt hotel in Louisville to sing the Star-Spangled Banner." And not a kneeler in the bunch! The NFL crybabies could learn something from these kids.

You Can Thank the McAuliffe/Northam Administration for This Nut Job Candidate

Nathan Larson, convicted felon
Nathan Larson is running for the Virginia House of Delegates as a libertarian although he's been censured by the party and may have been expelled by now.. (Who would want to claim this nut job?) The former felon would be ineligible to run for office except for one thing. He was among the 13,000 felons whose rights were restored by the McAuliffe/ Northam administration including the right to run for public office. What a gift to voters in Virginia!

Larson wants to legalize pornography and incestuous marriage and supports "breeding top quality girls whose lineage and genetic characteristics can be independently certified," Here are just two loony-tune points from his fourteen-point plan:

Everybody is talking these days about sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior....

....sooooo.... how come Ellen Degenerate Degeneres gets a pass for ogling Katy Perry's chest?

Oh...yeah...they're friends so it's okay. Well, hey, some of the women in conflict with Harvey Weinstein called him a friend too.

So what is this? Lesbian privilege? Can you imagine the reaction if this photo showed a man in that position? Just one more demo that liberals are first class hypocrites operating under a privileged double standard.

Ralph Northam Wants to be Governor of Virginia

This is how he presents himself.

But this is what he and his party support.

Democrats support abortion long after 24 weeks!
In fact, they never found an abortion-killing
they couldn't justify!
There is something particularly evil about a man who knows full well how the baby develops in the womb supporting the little one's murder. Ralph Northam calls it "protecting women's reproductive rights." Those who have eyes to see call it defending the genocide of babies in the womb.

And that's not all Northam supports. He wants to restore all rights to convicted felons including child abusers, pornographers, violent offenders, and others convicted of serious crimes.

Remember when Terry McAuliffe used his autopen to restore voting rights to 13,000 felons. The court said he had to review on a case by case basis? No problemo! Ralph Northam is cut from the same trade for play cloth. The presumption, probably a good one, is that crooks vote for Democrats, so restore their voting rights before elections.

If you're a Virginian who loves God, family, and country, don't let this pro-abortion fraud use children to advance policies that kill children. Vote Ed Gillespie on November 7th. And remember, friends don't let friends vote for child-killing.

Andrew Klavan on How to Behave During a Muslim Massacre

This video is several years old, but even more apropos today than ever. After you watch it you'll be well prepared for Islam 101: Preparing for the Coming Caliphate in the West.

The Children of Kalergi

Charlemagne: "What the...?"
"The only thing Kalergi didn't factor in was Islam but his diversity of peoples vs diversity of individuals seems to be doing well in theory since the European Union's adoption of the Coudenhove-Kalergi pan-European plan. And I don't think Charlemagne would be too happy either." 

That's big talk for someone (me) who knows nothing about all this but only just stumbled upon it this morning. I happened to see a comment on Jihad Watch (JW) in reference to Angela Merkel receiving the 2010 Coudenhove-Kalergi prize medal.

Sunday Meditation: A Study in Contrasts -- Fra Angelico's Paintings of the Annunciation

The old Eve and the new Eve; Eve's no; Mary's yes; disobedience vs. obedience; pride vs. humility. Whom do I resemble more -- Eve or Mary?

If you think the transgender male running against Virginia State Delegate Bob Marshall in Prince
William County is a serious candidate for public office, think again. This confused and seriously disturbed individual is a grandstander and exhibitionist of the first stripe. I'm not posting the video embedded in the article below and if you watch it be prepared for a disgusting exhibition. But it should make you aware of how serious the situation is. When the Democrat establishment supports a person like this as a serious candidate for public office and pours buckets of money into his coffers...well...what can one say...except that they really are the "demon-crats" some call them.

Giovanni Sartori: "Integrating Muslim Immigrants is IMPOSSIBLE"

Giovanni Sartori 1924 - 2017
Giovanni Sartori (d Apr 2017 in Florence, Italy), an Italian political scientist specialized in the study of democracy and comparative politics, said: "Islam is incompatible with the West"
Giovanni Sartori is one of the most critical thinkers on the integration of Muslims in Europe: "Those who do not accept our rules should be placed at the border."
And, "We are in the hands of ignorant politicians who do not know history and have no culture. Their only care is to keep their positions of authority. They spend the day listening to the views of the opposite side and thinking about what answer to give. Therefore nothing is built. There are no leaders and statesmen, and so it goes that the European Union is a poorly constructed building which is collapsing. The situation becomes disastrous as some have believed that they could integrate Muslim immigrants, and that's impossible."

Dan(ica) Roem and His Record of Bad Judgment

Dan(ica) Roem all dressed up in the Empress's
new clothes and ready to play heavy metal at the
Mad Hatter's tea party. (Don't drink the tea!)
Check out Bob Marshall's new ad exposing Dan(ica) Roem's bad judgment. I'd say Roem's first act of bad judgment was rejecting his God-ordained sexual identity as a male to play dress up as a female.

If he were pretending to be Helen of Troy or Cleopatra everybody would say he was crazy and call for him to be mentally evaluated. But because our culture has gone insane, he can pretend to be a woman and people shake their heads like bobble-head dolls. "Oh yess, he feeeeeeeeels like a woman so he must be one. That thing dangling between his legs or disposed of with the medical garbage is a figment of your imagination."

Oh, Say Can You See

Robbin Williams on Stage Speaking as the American Flag  Priceless!
A dear friend of ours sent along this link to a video of Robbin Williams on stage impersonating the American flag.  Not only is Williams forever funny, he reminds us of how lucky we are to be Americans, free to think and believe what we choose and not what we are told, and free to be different without coercion to conform.  We have this freedom because sacrifices have been made for us that preserve these concepts of freedom in spite of socialist efforts, which never cease, to try to take it all away from us.

Really? A 45 Foot Nude Woman Statue on the National Mall?

Nothing surprises me anymore. But when I read about "Catharsis on the Mall" with its plan to erect a statue of a 45 foot nude woman I couldn't help thinking of Robert Hugh Benson's Lord of the World about the coming of the anti-Christ. One of the features of the humanitarian "religion" envisioned in the book (which replaces Christianity), is the establishment of four mandatory religious ceremonies celebrated annually including one called Maternity that features a statue of a nude woman.

Nous abandonnons! Nous nous rendons!

France! Your silence about Islam is complicity.
Speak now or surrender your country.
Paris then

Is There A Doctor In The House?

Have you ever been in a crowd when someone called out, “Is there a doctor in the house?”  I don’t know of any occasion where this plea has been made that no one showed up.  You always hear people say things like, “Thank goodness there was a doctor there, otherwise the guy never would have made it.” 

Each of us has a skill or talent we have been given by God that allows us to earn a living or somehow improve our lives or the lives of others.  In the book of Exodus, chapter 35:10, Moses said,
Let every artisan among you come and make all that the Lord has commanded……
The chapter continues with a description of all that is to be made and what skill will be required to do the work as God wished.  Moses might have argued with God saying where will I get so much talent and so many things as you require of me, but he trusted God and he knew that as with the natural resources of the earth, which never run out, neither will talent if man is allowed to freely associate with a community of his choice. 

Your End-Times IQ Exam

I love James Finn Garner. Recently I got his Apocalypse Wow! A Memoir for the End of Time off the shelf. In it he has a six-page Doomsday Final Exam with 24 questions and his multiple choice answers. The book was published in 1997 - twenty years ago - so I thought a bit of updating to 2017 would be fun.

1) What are the names of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse?
     a. War, Famine, Pestilence, and Death
     b. Jim, Ted, Blase, and Jorge 
     c. USCCB, LCRW, CCHD, and HRC
     d. Godfried, Christoph, Reinhard, and Walter

Nothing Says "Sweden" Like a Mosque

Shhhh! Don't say anything or give multiculturalists any big ideas, but I bet that by this time next year Hasbro will have rolled out a new Monopoly game just in time for Christmas. It will integrate America's Islamic founding fathers (per Obama) into this all-American game with Zakat cards to replace Community Chest, a few tiny plastic green mosques to sit alongside houses and hotels, and a tiny gold scimitar token. Players will "Go to Jail" for the crime of Islamophobia.

Are There Cults Within the Catholic Church?

To answer that, you’d first need to know what a cult is.  Most people assume they know based on some scant knowledge of the Moonies or a memory of the time when hopping chanting members of Hari Krisna, with their bald heads and glazed eyes, were seen in public airports across the country.

I remember hearing stories on shows like 60 Minutes or Twenty Twenty about parents who were trying to kidnap their kids and put them in deprogramming treatment to get them away from cult leaders.  Then there was David Koresh whose compound was raided in the early 1990’s in Waco, Texas, and Jim Jones, who led more than 900 people to Guyana in 1978 and persuaded them to kill themselves.  And of course, then there is all the talk of Scientology which is a favorite of Hollywood stars.

Dying for Your Delusion!

Featured Image
Woman dies after botched transgender surgery

She was born a woman, Rebeccah Elizabeth. But she wanted to be a man so she changed her name and then started going through all kinds of medical gyrations to turn her female body into a bad imitation of a man's. Part of that included the surgery, a hysterectomy, that killed her. A beautiful 25-year-old woman with her whole life ahead of her died for her gender dysphoria. She felt like a man, and was determined to make her body look like a man's. She would still be a woman biologically since that is unchangeable, but she could play dress-up more convincingly.

Delusions can kill. Feelings can kill.

Sunday Meditation: Deliver Us From Evil

St. Joseph, patron of a good
death, pray for us.
I read a sobering article this morning, Father Hyde and the Mystery of Evil, by Deacon James Toner about a pious Catholic priest who became immersed in a child sex abuse ring. It's a horror story to rival Stevenson's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

As I read the article I couldn't help thinking of the psychological term, cognitive dissonance, believing two opposing ideas at the same time. Clearly, that's what happens when the rug is pulled out from under one -- when a person you believed was holy suddenly is revealed as committing the most horrific evils. How could that be? Is it the same person you loved and respected?

But perhaps a holy "Fr. Hyde" really was pious and good until, somehow, he gradually, step by step, embraced the persona of the evil "Fr. Hyde." It's sobering isn't it? To think of someone we admired and loved, a person we looked up to and respected is revealed as the betrayer. Was he always a fraud? Were we simply blinded by a false light?

Al Wilson Sang it Best - the Woman is the West

The Woman = the West; the Snake = Islam

While England's police are painting their nails and wearing high heels and Sweden is calling in their military to handle Islamic no-go zones, don't say no one warned us about Islam, especially Al Wilson.

You can't deal with the devil and get a fair deal. - Old saying

It is not in human nature to deceive others for any long time, without in a measure deceiving ourselves also. - Cardinal Newman

Men speak of some that have two faces in one hood.
- St Thomas More

Instead of saying thanks, the snake gave her a vicious bite. - Al Wilson

While watching this video think: West/Woman. Islam/Snake.

Making Memories: A Grandma's Pleasure

We love visiting our children and grandchildren. One of the things I like best is thinking about making memories for the children. On our latest visit to our son in Texas and his family we decided to celebrate their new home, (They moved in July.), with a housewarming party.

Tonight was the big night. I made my son's favorite dinner, also a favorite of the kids, parmesan chicken made with a white wine sauce instead of the traditional tomato-based sauce and served with alfredo noodles. Salad, warm bread, apple sauce, and cottage cheese accompanied the dinner. See more here.

Needless to Say the Mainstream Media Isn't Telling You about This Transgender Crime!

Miguel Martinez, accused rapist
Transsexual Male Faces Trial for Raping Ten Year Old Family Friend after Luring Her into Women's Rest Room!

Oh but the media will assure us that men masquerading as women are no danger to little girls. After all, they're really women, right? So they'll act like women.


Let's all sit down at the Mad Hatter's tea party and discuss how important it is to respect gender identity. Because these poor "women" are the real victims in society -- not the little 10-year-old Wyoming girl paying the price for society's insanity! So will you let your ten-year-old daughters go to the bathrooms at Target and other politically correct places that welcome men pretending to be women to follow little girls on in?

The Chain Link Cathedral

My favorite book by Sheen
St. Augustine wrote, ““You have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless, until they can find rest in you.”  Blessed Fulton J. Sheen wrote of this restlessness in his book Peace of Soul.  He showed us how there is a longing to reconcile ourselves with truth and come to rest in knowing answers to all the things that trouble us throughout our lives.  Until we have found the fullness of truth there is no enduring peace in our hearts.  

As the world grows less and less religious and membership in churches of all denominations around the globe continues to decline,  it becomes ever more obvious each day how true this longing is and how in spite of man’s rejection of God through professed faith, that longing persists.  It is a longing to achieve inner peace in an ever more violent world.  It is the desire to comfort ourselves with something beautiful and pure and innocent.  We walk away from God, but the farther away we get, the more restless we are to be at peace, to have order and dignity and calm in our lives.

Every Young Woman Needs to see This!

Dr Jordan Peterson
Dr Jordan Peterson is the University of Toronto psychology professor currently taking on gender-neutral pronouns. The BBC reports, "His employers have warned that, while they support his right to academic freedom and free speech, he could run afoul of the Ontario Human Rights code and his faculty responsibilities should he refuse to use alternative pronouns when requested.
Dr Amanda W Peet
Professor of Physics
University of Toronto
They also said they have received complaints from students and faculty [no doubt self proclaimed "non-binary" transgender physics professor Amanda Peet] that his comments are "unacceptable, emotionally disturbing and painful" and have urged him to stop repeating them.
Dr Peterson has said if he is brought up before the Ontario Court of Human Rights and put in prison he will go on a hunger strike. 
Dr Peterson has several worthwhile videos on YouTube for those of us not fortunate enough to be students in his classroom. Below is an exceptional video that every young woman should watch, especially those thinking careers should be considered first before children and family.

Dymphna Explains the Latin Mass for You.

Never been to a Traditional Latin Mass and worry that you just won't get it? Put your mind at ease by reading Dymphna's explanation, and then why not check one out. If you love reverence and want to enter into a profound experience of silence in Communion with our God, you will be moved by the TLM. "Let us go into the altar of God, unto God who gives joy to my youth."

The Wisdom of Walker Percy

We were in a restaurant in Meridian, Mississippi recently and on the stairs leading to the second floor there were photographs of Mississippi's favorite sons (and daughters). Among them were Walker Percy, the MD turned novelist and his Uncle Will whom Percy often mentions in his essays. Uncle Will (who was really a cousin) raised Walker and his brother after their dad committed suicide and their mother died two years later. Walker had great affection for him. Seeing Percy's photo on the wall got me thinking about him. I'm a big fan and have a goal to read all his work, both fiction and non-fiction.

Ah, the Jesuits, you just gotta laugh and you will when you read this!

This is too funny not to share. And, sadly, too true. You can't make fun of the Jesuits because they are too busy making fun of themselves!

Well, here's a real role model for children - the transgender-demon!

So...let's get this straight. The librarians at the Michelle Obama Library in Long Beach believed this was a good idea -- to have a horned demon drag queen reading stories to little children? But my bigger question is why would parents enable this abuse? What are they thinking of? If this is tolerance, I revel in being intolerant! Read more here.

Please Pray for This Dear Dominican Priest and Praise God for His Providence

I'm sharing below an email I received from an email friend, Fr. Bartholomew Ruben de la Torre, O.P. Please join me in praying for his speedy recovery. Mary Ann

You haven't heard from me because I almost died!

Dear relatives, friends and correspondents,

     The title is correct, and here is background.
     On Sat. Oct 7, Feast of O.L. of the Rosary, I attended the 40th priestly anniversary of a friend of mine, Dominican Fr. Fernando Romero, in a little town called El Oro, out in the rural and mountainous territory in the center of the country some 2 1/2 hrs. out of Mexico City. I had a great time. On Mon., Oct. 9, another Dominican, Fr. Arturo Vargas, drove me back to the Dominican parish where he lives in Mexico City called Divino Redentor. The young deacon, soon to be ordain a priest, Bro. Pedro, came to my room, whose door I had left open, to ask what I wanted for dinner and found me incoherent and on the floor.

Random Thoughts about a UkrainianByzantine Rite Mass We Attended

  • The Mass was a beautiful mixture of the familiar and unfamiliar. 
  • There were several icons in the front of the church and three poles with gold objects on top behind the altar: a cross in the middle (I think) and discs with designs on either side. At one point, two of the altar boys came with the discs and held them over the priest like what's being done in the photo on the right. 
  • In front of the altar was a table with an icon (as pictured) and many people came up and venerated it before Mass. 
  • There were six altar boys wearing gold vestments matching the priest's and quite beautiful; several couldn't have been more than six. They were very reverent and so sweet -- like little cherubs.

Pope Francis and the Death Penalty: More Contradiction on Church Teaching

Hey Lord, I love abortionist Emma Bonino, but
can you please do something about those rigid
Catholics who support the "inhumane" death
penalty that "humiliates...human dignity?"
Here we go again. Pope Francis has come out in an address October 11th to members of the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization saying, that treatment of the death penalty now requires, “leav[ing] out positions in defense of arguments which now appear decisively contrary to the new understanding of Christian truth. ... It is necessary to reiterate that, no matter how serious the crime committed, the death penalty is inadmissible because it is an attempt against the inviolability and dignity of the person.” [Read articles here and here.]


Pope Francis is adamant in his condemnation saying:

There Goes the Neighborhood! Abortionist Leroy Carhart Moves to Bethesda.

Baby Butcher Leroy Carhart 
Carhart to open a late-term abortion mill in Bethesda

I wonder what the other tenants of the medical building where abortionist Leroy Carhart is opening up a new chop shop will think about their new neighbor. The late term abortionist, a hired hit man, is willing to murder babies all the way up to birth. Talk about giving all doctors a bad name!

And speaking of giving doctors a bad name, Operation Rescue has discovered that his new "medical" facility is not licensed which, under Maryland law, would make abortions performed there illegal.

That, of course, is nothing new. Most illegal abortions, before Roe v. Wade imposed child-killing on the entire country, were done by MDs. Milan Vuitch, the infamous D.C. doctor, did them for years in his basement before Roe v. Wade. He postured as a crusader for women, but his mill was a shop of horrors like Kermit Gosnell's. After Roe, he just moved his shingle to the front after the law changed and continued the same bloody business.  Like Carhart, he killed not only babies, but women in so-called "safe, legal abortions."  In 1984 after WDVM-TV did an expose which won the Peabody Award Vuitch's abortion mill was closed for good.

Abortion Activists Angry That Trump Administration is Helping Undocumented Teen Girls Choose Life

Teenage immigrants get real help
from Trump administration!
"Earlier this year, the Office of Refugee Resettlement issued a new policy requiring that taxpayer-funded shelters for immigrants and refugees offer life-affirming support to women and girls who are pregnant, according to Slate, a pro-abortion blog site. 
Abortion activists are upset by the new policy, especially because the administration encourages shelters to take women and girls to life-affirming pregnancy resource centers." [Read more here...]

Here's What Happened after the March 25, 1984 Consecration of Russia

Yes, Russia is Consecrated!

The contents of this post is one part of a four part article from the link above.

Russia was converted from Communism to relative Freedom of Religion. Its conversion is ongoing and free. God respects the free will of men. They have freedom to convert or reject the faith. Our Lady never said that Russia would be converted to Catholicism. She said simply that it would be converted and a period of peace would be given to the world. (Peace, as in there was NOT a nuclear war in 1984-85 as Lucia had feared.)

Lucia of Fatima Part II - The Vow of Perfection

From One Peter Five
Editor’s note: The following, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the apparitions at Fatima, is Part II of a four-part series by Jonathan and Clara Fleischmann. Parts I and II were originally published by Missio Immaculatae Magazine and are edited and reprinted here with the authors’ permission. Read Part I here.
Lucia’s Vow of Perfection
“Maximalism” is a curious term. In the arts, a common definition is the “aesthetic of excess and redundancy” [1]. Such a definition is implicitly derogatory, since “excess” according to any one of its several meanings is always in some sense opposed to “perfection” or “perfect quantity.” It is perhaps because of this unfortunate connotation that Pope St. John Paul II – himself a student of the arts – made the following statement: [Read more...]

Multiculturalists Remove Video on YouTube

Defending Poland against contemporary Islamic invasion

This is an amazing 7 minute video. Perhaps Americans need to do this along our own border. From 4:13 to the end of the video is an explanation of how the Rosary crusade was planned along Poland's 3,582 kilometer borderline. They are praying to God with the Mother of God for defending Christianity in Poland against the contemporary Islamic invasion.

HEY! WHO REMOVED THE VIDEO I POSTED?!! Google, was it you? YouTube?

Spencer's book THE COMPLETE INFIDEL'S GUIDE TO FREE SPEECH (AND ITS ENEMIES) HERE. Order a copy before they ban the book. Our freedom to express our opinion is fast being removed by multicultural Left Islamophiles. 

I ordered the book so as to know what to do about suppression of free speech when posting about Islamic hijra jihad, and ZAP! - within a day the video was removed presumably because the subtitle "Defending Poland against contemporary Islamic invasion" is offensive Islamophobia and anti-multiculturalism. Or YouTube removed it because it was a beautiful video showing Poland's love for Our Lady and Christianity. Or because the Polish people were not each one brandishing scimitars. That would have been OK. ORDER THE BOOK! Order it....NOW!

In Preparation for the 100th Anniversary of Fatima on Friday... this wonderful account of Lucia's experiences. It begins:

Introducing Lucia 
Lucia de Jesus dos Santos, also known as Lucia of Fatima, or by her religious name, Sr. Maria Lucia de Jesus e do Coração Imaculado (Maria Lucia of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart), OCD, was born on March 28, 1907, in Aljustrel, a parish of Fatima, Portugal. She was the seventh [1] and youngest child of António Santos and Maria Rosa. They were hardworking and happy peasants, not poor, as they had good fertile land and a sizeable herd of sheep. Lucia was a loved and almost spoiled little girl, as she relates in her memoirs: Read more here.

Sr Lucy had Dentures and an Electric Olivetti

Page 354 from
"A Pathway Under the Gaze of Mary"
The book "A Pathway Under the Gaze of Mary" has several pictures of Sr Lucy that I had never seen before in any other books. With the imprimatur of the bishop of Coimbra, this biography of Sister Lucia was written in Portuguese in 2013 by the Carmel of St Teresa in Coimbra, Portugal. The book's photographs come from the Archives of the Carmelo of Coimbra and also the Shrine of Fatima. I assume the pictures we normally see are from the Shrine and the more rare photos from the Convent's archives.

"Written by the Sisters of Carmel of Coimbra, it reflects their personal knowledge of her daily life and writings, and provides testimonies that mirror the depth of her soul." The English version was translated by James Colson in 2015 with the book being then published by the World Apostolate of Fatima, USA. The nihil obstat and imprimatur for the English edition are pending.

NETFLIX Peddles Filth to Babies!

Beware the hormone monster.
If you haven't read Susan's post from earlier today, read that first. Then look how the left has "progressed" to encouraging sexual immorality among children and pedophilia with its new show, Big Mouth. Read about it here and sign the petition. Here's how the Vigilant Community describes the new show:
The trailer promoting the new Netflix animated series Big Mouth is a cringy experience and highlights a disturbing agenda in mass media: The sexualization of children. Welcome to media madness.

Tomi Ungerer and the Evil Loving Left - My First Introduction to Their Agenda for Our Children

This is the first edition cover of Oh, How Silly!, a child's book of poems selected by William Cole and illustrated by the porn cartoonist Tomi Ungerer. Later editions have a less offensive cover, although they too are contaminated with the filth of Ungerer's drawings. Two years ago the Huffington Post referred to Ungerer as "the world's darkest children's illustrator" whose works are "dark, abnormal and frightening, even for many adults" ... the same Tomi Ungerer, "whose world knows no borders" where "far out isn't far enough" and who was, true to the form of the Left, appointed by the European Council (which sets the EU's policy agenda) as first Ambassador for Childhood and Education.

My children are grown now but when they were in a public elementary school in Virginia one of them checked this book out of the school library. When I saw it I was horrified because it isn't "silly" for a man to be holding a cocked and loaded gun pointed into his ear with a route through his brains to a target on the other side of his head to commit suicide. (school shootings today?)

The American Pravda: James O'Keefe Takes on the New York Times

God Bless our Polish Brothers and Sisters.

Up to a million Poles pray the rosary at the border!

The New York Times called what the Poles did "controversial." I call it faithful. Long live Christ our King! May He rule in our hearts and in our countries. Pray the rosary with a friend today or with your guardian angel for the conversion of the world.

Imagine if we did this at our Southern border. Would a wall of prayer help to halt the invasion and the violence of the coyotes, drug gangs, and terrorists? 

Let's make a virtual wall today by praying the rosary for the specific intention of the protection of our country and the conversion of the world. 

Are you with me?

Sometimes you just gotta laugh! Especially When the Left is Eating its Own.

Do you think this privileged white girl
cares about black babies murdered in the womb?
When I saw that a bunch of white students participated to shout down ACLU president Claire Gastanaga at William and Mary in the name of Black Lives Matter -- well what can you do but laugh! The ACLU has been shutting down pro-lifers and other conservatives for years. Now one of their reps knows what its like. Good, maybe that will impact their policies.

But the threat to free speech is real.

And it was ironic and ridiculous to see children of white privilege chanting slogans along with their black colleagues against white privilege. Were they joking?

Hey, if they really believe it, shouldn't they give up their slots at William and Mary for black applicants. What right do they have to be accepted instead of a black student?

Asteroid Will Pass Close to the Earth on the Vigil of the 100th Anniversary of Fatima

Chelyabinsk meteor was brighter than the sun
when it expoded over the city in 2013.
According to NASA, on October 12th a large asteroid named 2012 TR4 will pass as close to the earth as 4200 miles although they expect the distance to be greater. Scientists are excited at the opportunity to study the asteroid and test some of their meteor detection systems. 

In 2013 a smaller asteroid exploded about 18 miles over the Russian city of Chelyabinsk. It's shock wave damaged more than 7000 buildings and injured over 1000 people mostly from flying debris.

Sunday Meditation: Seeking Holy Tranquility

How will you nurture "holy tranquility"
 in your life?
How many people today are caught up in noise and glitter, flashing lights and endless confusion? Most I think. The only way out is the remedy Monsignor Romana Guardini describes below -- finding a place of silence, of "holy tranquility." 

We desperately need silence so we can hear the Lord's still, small voice. If we fill our lives with endless noise by smart phone, TV, music and talk radio, internet social networks, conversation, etc. we will forever be on the merry-go-round of confusion. Life will spin past and we will miss the most important parts as we mindlessly ride in circles with lights flashing around us and calliope noise filling our ears.

Thank God for another Trump Blessing! Bye-bye Contraceptive Mandate.

I bet the Little Sisters of the Poor
are thanking God for President Trump!
Trump Ends Contraceptive Mandate! Praise God!

Contraception may be the most serious moral evil ever treated like a ho-hum, no-big-deal societal staple. Think about it. Abortion is a horrendous sin that kills a baby, but that little one will live for all eternity.

Contraception doesn't just will the death of a soul; it wills the non-existence of a soul willed by God. In that sense it is even worse than abortion because a soul is not only physically murdered but denied existence at all.

Pray the Rosary against the Islamic World Invasion on the Feast of the Battle of Lepanto

A Million Catholics Pray The Rosary On Poland’s Border Commemorating The Defeat Of Islam At The Battle Of Lepanto

From the Desk of Richard Thompson
     This Saturday, October 7, over a million Catholics in Poland are expected to gather along Poland’s 2000-mile border in a massive rosary prayer crusade entitled “Rosary on the Borders.” Their purpose is to commemorate the anniversary of the October 7, 1571 Battle of Lepanto, during which the outnumbered Christian naval fleet dealt a massive blow to the Muslim Ottoman Empire, saving Christendom from Islamic domination.   Read more....
Today we have a growing pretense promoted by many clerics in the Church that Islam is no threat to Christianity and we should welcome hordes Islamic immigrants with open arms. That was not, however, the reaction of Pope Pius V as the Islamic fleet threatened Europe. From the article above we learn that:

Commercial Break: Homemade Hot Fudge

I enjoy cooking and making up my own recipes. The kids joke about me starting a cooking show about using up leftovers in creative ways. Well, this commercial isn't for using leftovers but about creating a homemade alternative to the high fructose ice cream toppings in the store. I can't claim that hot fudge is ever a health food, but what you choose to put in it (or leave out of it) can make a healthier alternative.

So if you like hot fudge check my Gramma blog and see my 4-ingredient recipe for hot fudge. Five minutes from stove to ice cream.

Birds of a Feather Flock Together -- Especially Vultures!

Where the carcass lies, there
the vultures gather. (Matt 24:28)
There's a spot here in Woodstock near the local park where several large trees with spreading branches seem to attract legions of turkey vultures. They roost in the trees in a creepy Halloween-like setting. I always shiver a bit when we pass by and see them roosting there.

On the other hand, the vultures have an important role to play in cleaning up the dead things: the road kill, the sick and injured animals that die in the woods...they are, in a way, nature's morticians.

Sadly, however, we have our own vultures in the Church who feed, not on the dead, but on the living. Instead of cleaning up after dead things, their chosen role appears to be taking living faith, poisoning it and feeding on the dying souls of the scandalized.

"They Inspire Joy, Kindness and Wonder."

...from President Trump"s statement declaring Down Syndrome Awareness Month.

Now what will the mainstream media find to criticize about this?

Talk about a group that is targeted by the culture of death. Most Down Syndrome babies never see the light of day. Ninety percent are killed before birth by abortion. I've posted the video below before but it's worth watching again. The weak and vulnerable teach us how to love "with a love so pure it makes your heart break." No, God doesn't make mistakes!

Demonic Evil in Las Vegas: Part of the Chastisement?

Las Vegas concernt goers run for cover.
What happened Sunday night in Las Vegas was demonic. There's no other way to describe it. The perpetrator, Stephen Paddock, described as a 64-year-old multi-millionaire who was a loner, was the trigger man. But can anyone doubt who was behind it? Like saints put a face on God, evildoers put a face on Lucifer. Love defines a Mother Teresa. Hate defines a Stephen Paddock.

There is still not enough information to explain the motive behind Paddock's demonic act, but it clearly was no random event. It was carefully planned. It appears that Paddock modified legally purchased rifles to transform them into rapid-fire machine guns. He also appears to have taken the time to move his numerous weapons (23 at last report) gradually over several days into his hotel room on the 32nd floor overlooking the concert site. He obviously wanted to kill as many as possible and to kill indiscriminately. The dead and injured cross the spectrum from young 20-somethings to grandparents. As one article described them:

Economic Rape of the South Led to Secession

When Union troops tried to resupply Fort Sumter, South
Carolina fired on the fort. The only casualty was a donkey,
but it gave Lincoln an excuse to call up 75,000 troops to stop
secession and force Southern states to remain in the Union.
Some critics believe he deliberately provoked the battle to
justify the war against the Southern states.
It's important to understand the major role economic issues played in the South's decision to secede. The states of the South represented about one fifth of the U.S. population, but they were paying over 80% of the tariffs levied by a Congress controlled by the Northern states. The actual amount involved according to Charles Adams writing in his book When in the Course of Human Events was about $107.5 million being charged at federal ports on goods coming into the country. The South, more dependent on imports than the mercantile North ended up paying about $90 million of this total compared to $17.5 million from the Northern states. That was a disparity of 83% of tariff taxation being picked up by the South and only about 17% from the North.

Really! The Gay Sign at a Children's Garden?

Gay chickens in the coop?
While we were biking on the Cayuga Waterfront Trail, we stopped to visit the Ithaca Children's Garden, a charming little spot designed just for the wee ones. There was obviously a New Age influence at the place since it had a giant turtle named Gaia with phases of the moon marked on her shell and also featured a labyrinth garden.

But the entire effect of the place was sweet with lots of beautiful flowers and mini spots (a troll house, for example) just the right size for children to play and imagine.

And the children who were there clearly enjoyed all the spots designed for their enjoyment including the rice paddy where several were dabbling in the water. One little boy assured me there were fish. He was trying to catch them.
