Young People "Get It" Archbishop Sample Says at Pontifical TLM Yesterday!

Wish we could have been there! Every time I go to the TLM, I see lots of young people!

Tom Brokaw Fights Back, Responds to Vester's "Ambush" in a Passionate E-mail

I've been chastised by readers for the post about Linda Vester's accusations against Tom Brokaw -- and rightly so. This is, of course, one more he said -- she said situation that can hardly be proven and doesn't involve anything illegal. Vester's own prudence is certainly questionable in her account of the situations she describes. 

So here is Brokaw's response to Vester's accusations. These days a man immediately judged guilty if a woman accuses him. 

On the other hand, we all know that many powerful figures (more men than women) have taken the liberty of their positions to step over the line in the workplace. The "casting couch" connotation exists because it's a reality. Of course, the reason it's a reality is women have used their beauty and charms to entice and ensnare. Sorry, girls, but it's true. 

I emphasize, once again, the behavior we should all exhibit as serious Catholics, whether en or women.  Visit the Catholic Gentlemen website and here's one for you Catholic ladies

How Do You Process the Deliberate Legal Murder of a Toddler?

Is Baby Alfie smiling at Jesus?
Alfie Evans is dead -- murdered very systematically by a tyrannical health service backed up by a liberal, gay friendly judge. It's no real surprise, is it? We're accustomed to the headlines. We followed the story of Charlie Gard

As a mother and grandmother I have a hard time wrapping my mind around this kind of evil where doctors and judges can snatch the authority over children from good parents who love and care for their little ones and deliberately conspire to kill them. Why?

They're Falling Like Dominoes: Is Tom Brokaw the Next Harvey Weinstein?

Linda Vester, NBC correspondent, describes her harassment by Tom Brokaw.

Brokaw denies it, but Linda Vester is no Stormy Daniels.

She is a respected foreign correspondent who covered the news from war zones for NBC. It will be hard to treat her story as a "bimbo eruption."

Vester left television in 2000 to focus on family. She has four children and three step children.

This latest story leads me to ask why some men act like such boars (in heat). I think of the medieval ideal of treating women with respect. The Man of La Mancha reflected that ideal, even addressing the self-proclaimed "slut" Aldonza as "now and forever my lady, Dulcinea." And gradually, she became what he imaged to her.

I Have No Doubt That Vox Speaks for Many Watching the Abomination Taking Place in Liverpool

Alfie Evans and the Damnation of England

Alfie's Case Shines the Light on the Cultural Shift from Medicine's Standard of "First Do No Harm" to a New Standard

And the new standard is don't waste money treating those the medical establishment considers defective. Just say they're "dying" (aren't we all?) and deny them ordinary care, i.e., food and water. We all die very quickly without hydration and nutrition!

 Maybe if Alfie's parents were same sex
he would have been more sympathetic. Ya think?
What we're seeing in Alfie's case is a quality of life evaluation that Judge Hayden put very succinctly when he basically swept aside Alfie's humanity saying, "The brain cannot regenerate itself and there is virtually nothing of his brain left." [Oh...and by the way, Hayden is a pro-gay activist. He also condemned to starvation a woman with minimal consciousness. One is tempted to ask if he would like someone to judge his life as he's judged others.]

For a judge to make himself a medical expert in a case he is deciding is seriously problematic.

Tom Evans Tells Supporters to Stand Down: Did Alder Hey refuse to discuss a home plan until he gave this press conference?

Tom Evans' statement sounds like it was written by the hospital. 

Is the family now under a gag order with the threat that Alfie will NEVER go home unless they agree to shut up and adopt the "end of life plan?" This announcement comes almost immediately after he discussed how badly they've been treated by the staff at Alder Hey. What a flip!

As the shroud of silence descends, it makes me think of Holy Thursday. "Judas went out; and it was night."

Please keep praying for Tom and Kate and baby Alfie. And pray for the people of the U.K. who live under this kind of medical tyranny. Alfie won't be its last victim!

No Man is an Island: We Need Community!

Our first community is Mom
and Dad and siblings.
I went to lunch yesterday with five friends -- real friends -- not the faux Facebook kind. Fortunately the restaurant wasn't busy so we weren't keeping our waiter from serving others because we shared and laughed and lamented for almost four hours.

We talked about our children and grandchildren, the tragedy taking place at Alder Hey Hospital with the deliberate move to euthanize baby Alfie Evans, about the insanity of gender fluidity and the failure of the Catholic parishes in Bob Marshall's district to support him in his race against transgender narcissist Dan(ica) Roem.

We talked about the books we're reading and how beautiful the bluebells are at Bull Run Park. We laughed a lot and cried a little.

When I left, I felt like I'd visited the fountain of youth. That's what a supportive community of believing Catholics does for the spirit. Hopefully, we'll get together in June for a rosary lunch.

Alfie Fights On: Parents Just Want to Take Him Home

Latest: Alfie Evans' dad reveals how toddler's brave mum is 'keeping him alive with cuddles' as they bid to take him home

A few observations: 
  • They keep describing Alfie as "terminal" when they don't even have a diagnosis. We've known people with "degenerative brain conditions" who've lived for years. So what do they mean by "terminal?" Aren't we all "terminal?" Does anyone get out of this life alive?

Why is Alder Hey so Intent on Killing Alfie? Two Motives Suggested...

...and let's face it, it's always about power and/or money!

Robert Moynihan from Inside the Vatican suggest the following from a contact:

And now, a blogger's chilling theory...

Canon Lawyer Ed Peters Says Alder Hey's Statement on Alfie Deserves the Josef Goebbels Award!

Josef Goebbels with Hitler in the Fuhrerbunker
where he and his wife Magda later killed their
six children and themselves.
Here's Peters' tweet:
That April 24 statement from Alder Hey "Hospital" on little Alfie, it deserves the 2018 Josef Goebbels Prize for Outstanding Achievement in Propaganda, for its making child murder sound like kindness.
Read the statement from hospital, a whining claim about how much they care about Alfie and his family and how THEY are the victims of such meanness from those who disagree with their murderous treatment of Alfie Evans and his family. Get out your crying towel. You'll need it when you read about the "difficult time" they've had which has been "hard to bear." Oh, and the "abuse" their staff has suffered. Of course there's not one word about the abuse of little Alfie and his parents. Welcome to the newspeak world of Alder Hey.

Alfie's Treatment is a Warning; This is the New "Palliative Care," The "Third Path" to Euthanasia

Life Tree has an interesting and enlightening article about the Third Path, which is a method of "passive euthanasia" that encourages people to reject even ordinary treatment (food and water and ordinary medication) to bring about death. If people don't choose it, however, there's often a creative way to impose it. Here's a bit from the article:
“Under traditional medical ethics, the guiding principle is ‘do no harm.’ But contemporary bioethics abandons this…in an effort to find the utilitarian goal of the ‘greatest good for the greatest number.’ Under these principles, preserving the life of the human patient is not considered paramount.”

So Now It's Starvation for Alfie. He Just Refuses to Die Fast Enough for the Modern Dr. Mengeles!

Tom Evans earlier today. He continues to fight for Alfie.
We've seen dehydration and starvation used many times to kill people whose lives are considered not worth living. Often it's combined with the morphine drip. This is the new "palliative care" to make sure people die and die relatively quickly.

Watch Tom Evans speak about what they are doing to his little son.

This is barbaric! These "doctors" put one in mind of Dr. Mengele.

Why are they so determined that this little boy die? He has no brain left the doctors say.

WHERE IS QUEEN ELIZABETH? Doesn't Alfie deserve the same protection as the new royal grandson?

Isn't Alfie the royal baby in his family?
Doesn't he deserve the same care and protection
the new royal grandson would receive?
UPDATE 3:45 p.m: Judge Anthony Hayden refuses to let baby Alfie be taken abroad. His name will go down in history with those of the Nazi judges who committed crimes against humanity! ALFIE MUST DIE by judicial fiat!

An effort is on petitioning Queen Elizabeth for intervention for Baby Alfie.

Would the new royal grandson be treated the same way Alfie is and receive the same neglect and efforts to delivery bring about his death?

Would doctors and judges impose their values on the royal family as they do with British commoners and nobodies?

Pray for a Miracle: Alfie Continues to Breathe on His Own!

Alfie continues to breathe on his own!
World Watches as little Alfie Evans continues to breathe without the ventilator. Edward Pentin reports
that the Italian government has plane ready to fly Alfie to Italy where he's been given Italian citizenship


Alfie's dad continues to fight for his son giving us an example of a manly father's love for his child. Before the ventilator was turned off he made this statement reported by LifeSiteNews:
He said that if the hospital’s actions result in the death of his son, he will sue everyone involved for "murder."
“But if my son dies now, I will instruct lawyers to start private prosecution of every single person who helps to make that happen,” he said.

It's Official: The State Owns Your Children and Can Do Anything They Want With Them

We're in a courtroom. You and millions of other parents sit at the defense table arguing that parents, by the authority of God, have the right to make decisions for their children. The state's authority, you argue, derives from God and He has given the primary right of decision-making for children to parents.

The prosecution team at the other table leaps up in unison to object. God has no place in this trial. The parents are out of order. 

The judge sustains the objection and orders the parents not to bring God into the courtroom.

From Robert Moynihan: Alfie's Last Hour -- Legal Murder by the "Post God" Culture

Monday, April 23, 2018

Alfie's Last Hour

As I write, at noon Rome time, Alfie Evans has one hour to live. 

His breathing tube will be removed at 1 p.m. Rome time. [and he will be chemically suffocated]

But this letter is not just about Alfie's life — supremely valuable as the life of any individual human being is.

It is about the life of our whole civilization, which stands before the moment of its condemnation.

The Consequences of Not Listening: A History Lesson for Our Elected Leaders to Commemorate the Battle of Lexington, April 19, 1775

Barre was an Irish soldier in the
English army and a renowned
member of Parliament, noted by
HoraceWalpole for his"very
classic and eloquent diction."
A recent article in The Wanderer by Terence P. Jeffrey presented a fascinating bit of British history that directly relates to our country's beginning. He described a disagreement in Parliament between Col. Isaac Barre, a veteran of the French and Indian War wounded at the Battle of Quebec, and Charles Townsend, a politician who became Chancellor of the Exchequer and was responsible for the detested"Townshend Acts," a series of laws imposing taxes on the American colonies, the first of which was the Stamp Act of 1765. 

The Stamp Act required the colonists in America to purchase stamps for every printed document: newspapers, legal notices, ships' manifests, in fact, every commercial transaction. The money was to be used for troops to defend and protect the American frontier. Despite the use of the money, the real objection to the Act was the fact that it was imposed without the input of the colonial legislatures themselves. Hence the motto: "No taxation without representation."

During the debate in Parliament over the Stamp Act on February 6, 1765, Barre gave this sensible advice to the members of the House of Commons:

Meditation for Sunday: When Man Replaces God, He Creates a Nightmare of Evil!

Are we condemned to repeat the evils of the past?
It's Earth Day. No doubt you're thinking of ways to make the earth a better place. I'm all for that, so let's take a little walk down one ugly path of history so we won't repeat it.

Did you know that the German government under Adolf Hitler murdered 300,000 aryan German citizens before it organized the mass killing of Jews? The German euthanasia program (Aktion T4) preceded the mass extermination of the Jews and other ethnic groups by two years. Hitler's personal doctor, Karl Brandt, organized the program the purpose of which was to eliminate undesirable populations in German society. Those with congenital health problems, the mentally ill, the retarded, even World War I amputees were targeted for death. Why? For a whole myriad reasons: eugenics, reducing the welfare budget, cost effectiveness, etc. all wearing the mask of compassion claiming the desire to reduce suffering.

Fired Feminist Pro-Abort Instigates Attack on Steubenville Colleagues

Rebecca Bratten Weiss
Pro-Abort Feminist Idealogue
From Church Militant TV April 19, by Christine Niles:
STEUBENVILLE, Ohio ( - Alumni of the Franciscan University  of Steubenville [All three of them!] launched an attack against conservative professors at the Catholic school, but inside sources claim a fired professor is behind the move.
An open letter published by "alumni and friends" of the university accuses Professors Anne Hendershott and Stephen Krason, among others, of being "strongly ideologically aligned with the far right of American politics." As proof, the letter cites articles authored by Hendershott and Krason calling out liberal Catholic schools, leftist protests, Obama policies and feminism. 

Counting Calories: An Exercise in Self Awareness and Accountability

We found this snail in the garden, Grandma.
We think it moves faster than you do! 
I've never paid much attention to my weight and have rarely dieted in my life. During Advent and Lent I've often given up sweets, alcohol, between meal snacks, and other calorie-laden goodies. I once gave up chocolate for an extended period for one of my children who was going through a hard time.

But I decided after my annual physical two weeks ago that I really need to drop some pounds because I'm exhausted all the time and the extra weight is no doubt a big reason. I decided I needed to get serious about it.

It's frustrating because I pretty much eat the way I always have: three meals a day and only a rare snack with a cup of decaf tea and honey in the evening. (Honey is a sleep aid and it really works for me.)  But being on prednisone for 18 months and the natural, metabolic slowdown from age seems to have reset my metabolism to that of a snail.

Twitter Discriminates against Young Adult with Down's Syndrome

Charlotte (Charlie) Fien's account was locked for 24 hours!


Because she posted pro-life photos on her Twitter page.

This young woman is an activist defending the rights of those with Down's Syndrome. She's spoken before the U.N. She's also worked to help the Irish people keep their laws protecting babies in the womb.

Read more here and check out her testimony at the U.N. Go, Charlie!

There's more than one way to abuse a child!

Jazz has serious problems including binge eating.
In my last post I referred to little Alfie Evans and the doctors' concerted effort to kill him by pulling his ventilator. But there are other ways to abuse and "kill" children. One of the worst is the politically correct way many are dealing with the illness of gender dysphoria. And, yes, it is an illness.

An endocrinologist evaluates I Am Jazz, the propaganda book for kids who have gender dysphoria. 

Dr. Michael Laidlaw provides a real service in analyzing one of the most popular books being pushed by transgender activists. He begins with an important point:

Will Pope Francis be a (Grand)Papa to Little Alfie Evans?

Little Alfie Evans deserves a chance to live!
Father of Alfie Evans meets with pope, pleads for asylum in Italy

As the culture of death zooms in on the sickest members of our human family, we need voices to stand up and speak out. And so I was glad to see these stories about Pope Francis meeting with little Alfie Evans' dad and speaking clearly about the evil of abandoning the sickest and most helpless among us:

An Interview with Dexter Duggan on the "Family Feud" with James Hitchcock

Read the latest Catholic news!
Earlier this month I wrote a post about the "family feud" between Catholic historian James Hitchcock and The Wanderer, a conservative Catholic newspaper. Hitchcock's book, Abortion, Religious Freedom, and Catholic Politics, targets The Wanderer (and reporter Dexter Duggan particularly) with a tsunami of criticism.  But the charges, from the perspective of a regular reader (myself), are baffling since Hitchcock implies that The Wanderer and several of her writers, have thrown the pro-life issue under the bus.


The Wanderer is one of the most consistent champions of babies in the womb and those who defend them in the Catholic media. The newspaper also publishes some of the best commentary on Catholic teaching about the entire range of pro-life issues: abortion, euthanasia, homosexual activism and same-sex "marriage", assisted suicide, reproductive technology, etc. How could a Catholic historian get things so wrong?

Maybe liberal Starbucks isn't so liberal after all.

I have to laugh when liberals demonstrate just how illiberal they are. Hey, Starbucks diversity is all about protecting the right to sodomy and gay "marriage," but letting blacks use the restroom when they haven't ordered one of their high priced burnt coffees...that's a horse (or a person) of a different color. I never drink Starbucks anyway, but I am laughing over their moment of negative notoriety! [Note: The police don't deserve any criticism here. They were called by Starbucks to remove the black men from what is a private business. They were simply carrying out the law that gives Starbucks the right to order people off their property.] Let's face it. These days many managers exhibit the snowflake attitude of don't make me feel uncomfortable. Get out so I can drink my latte and hug my snuggie in my safe space. Of course the situation at Starbucks will get a lot more media coverage than the episode in Seattle where pro-lifers were ordered out of the gay coffee shop.

Here's Why We Need Capital Punishment!

7 inmates killed in 'mass casualty incident' at SC prison

Many are probably shaking their heads and saying I'm not really pro-life because I believe capital punishment is sometimes justified. But I believe the state has the obligation to protect her people and prevent more innocent victims from those who clearly cannot be safely assimilated into society and are an on-going danger to other inmates and prison workers. Don't they have rights? Aren't their lives worth protecting?

Sunday Meditation: Control of the Thoughts, a Prescription for Spiritual Health

Today has offered a continual reminder that one of the keys to happiness is to control our thoughts. A constant litany of negativity is the quickest way to discouragement and depression. When I was on Facebook this morning, I came across a video of Zig Ziglar. It intrigued me so I took a look at his bio. His life wasn't all roses and bonbons. His father died when he was only six years old and his baby sister died two days later. His family was poor. He was a salesman who struggled to make enough to take care of his family. And yet, he never gave up and ended up a successful motivational speakers helping millions of people "overcome obstacles." Here's just one short video with an important message about life.

Let's Hear It for Tennessee: Gov Signs Bill Defunding Planned Parenthood!


Tennessee moves to defund Planned Parenthood

They still need a waiver from the feds according to the article and no doubt the well funded abortion giant will sue, but the legislature and governor did the right think and it puts pressure on the baby killers and sends a message. The law is a teacher and this is one teaches that Tennessee favors childbirth over child murder.

So here's a big Tennessee celebration song!

U.K. Continues to Kidnap Sick Babies to Kill Them!

Baby Alfie Evans, the latest "useless eater"
targeted in the U.K. for death by doctor mandate!
Who has the right to make decisions over Alfie's medical treatment? Or even where he dies? The U.K. says it's judges and doctors. Move over, parents, your children belong to the state and if they don't measure up, it's "Sayonara, baby!" Alder Hey Children's Hospital even put a police guard outside the little one's room to make sure his parents don't remove the baby from their "loving" care.

This little one is likely to end up the same way Charlie Gard did -- dead by doctors' mandate.

If the death peddlers say your little one's case is hopeless, even if you raise money to pay for treatment and have an air ambulance ready to take him to another hospital (like Alfie's parents do) they will kill your child anyway. What do you know about it, you stupid parents? We are the scientists and medical experts and we say it's time to die!

On the Attack in Syria: Where are We Going?

Updating Just War Theory

This article was written before the attack on Syria by the U.S. The talking heads are all yelling at each other. I remember being totally confused about the Vietnam War which was raging when I graduated from college. One of my classmates lost her fiance in the Tet Offensive. I stood in the stairwell at the Main Navy building on Constitution Ave. in D.C. and watched one of the anti-war marches going by feeling totally confused about the morality of the war.

Do things never change? I hope you are praying your rosary today for world peace.

University of Tennessee Hosts Sex Week

What a week at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville!

"Sex Week" ended yesterday and the students no doubt got big benefits from all the "events" listed in their flyer. I hesitate to post it because of the XXX events of the week, but I think it's necessary for parents to realize exactly what's happening on college campuses today to "educate" their children.

Note Thursday's events beginning with the "Science of Abortion." If you think that's about showing kids how abortion kills babies or the risks to women, you must have just stepped off an alien starship. And just imagine the show and tell at "Toys R Sex." Will they have live demonstrations for that sexshop and the next event which I can't even bring myself to type? Is this why parents are spending big bucks to send their kids to college?

Media Ignores Student Pro-Life Walkout!


Students at 350 schools walk out to protest child killing by abortion

And what's the media response?

.....Anyone?.....Anyone?.....Hear the crickets?....Or was that a yawn?

The Attack on Humanae Vitae and the Leftist Groups Behind It Today

John Podesta and the "Catholic Spring"
With the 50th anniversary of Humanae Vitae (HV) coming up, we'll no doubt see many articles reflecting the history of the birth control wars. I read one this morning
describing what was happening in 2012 under the Obama administration. (Here's another.) These reflect not only the impact of the collapse in morality spurred by the 1960s revolution, but more recent Democrat strategies to further undermine morality by manipulating Catholics.

Two generations after HV the smoldering wreckage was being fanned into flames by liberals on the hill using Catholic front groups and the complicit mainstream media who share their agenda.

#IstandwithLaura - Are David Hogg's Fifteen Minutes of Fame almost Up?

Let's hope so!

If you dare to criticize the foul-mouthed teenager (who calls anyone who supports the second amendment a "f***ing child killer) expect to be attacked for "picking on a child." Hmm...Is David just a baby bully who can say anything he wants disparaging others but is allowed to rampage in the pigpen himself? You would have thought Laura Ingraham threatened to beat the baby with a club instead of tweeting that he whined about not getting accepted to his college of choice. Really, David, grow up!

Do You Know Your Bishop?

If you haven't checked out my new page, Know Your Bishops, I invite you to visit. I'm adding to it
every day. Here's the intro I wrote:
INTRODUCTION: Jesus said, "By your fruits you shall know them." That doesn't sound like an admonition to live in blind acceptance of everything people say and do because "who am I to judge?" We are, in fact, called by Christ to evaluate and judge the fruits of those around us so we can make sound moral decisions.

Former Disney Princess Exposes Wicked Witch, Planned Parenthood

Which Disney Princess?
Recently Planned Parenthood tweeted that Disney needs a princess who's had an abortion. Yes, they really said it. They also suggested a transgender princess. Really! Wouldn't you love to have your little girls being hugged and fondled by a man dressed as Cinderella or Ariel?

Apparently the blowback was significant, because they removed the tweet later and said the subject was too serious for the context. Right! 

Well, now a former Disney princess, Deanna Falchook, who did in fact, have an abortion to keep her job as Cinderella has responded to PP. Here's an excerpt:

Meandering Thoughts for Monday

Diamond and Silk: two tough talking ladies!
  • The feast of the Annunciation was moved from March 25th to this morning because of Palm Sunday falling on the feast day. So, just think, that means we are closer to Christmas. Jesus will be born two weeks early in 2018!
  •  Facebook says Diamond and Silk are "unsafe." The two hairdressers, conservative black women (and sisters) who support President Trump, are definitely "unsafe" to liberals who hate people of color escaping their plantation. Get used to it, liberals.

How's That Bathroom Policy at Target Working Out?

Man Exposed Himself to Child in South Loop Target Restroom
A mother was with her young child at about 4:08 p.m. in the women’s restroom at the Target at 1154 S. Clark when the man entered and insisted he had to go to the bathroom, according to Chicago Police.
He then pushed into the stall where the child was and exposed his genitals before leaving the bathroom, police said.

New Blog Page: Know Your Bishops!

I once read about a good Irish Catholic mom who told her children how to recognize a good priest from a bad priest. A good priest, she told her children, is one who teaches what the Church teaches. A bad priests teaches things that conflict with what the Church teaches. That good advice applies exponentially to bishops called to teach, govern, and sanctify the flock.

So I'm adding a new page to the blog called "Know Your Bishops."

More from Mark Robinson! What a Great Spokesman for the Constitution and the Second Amendment!

Update on Mark Robinson from North Carolina:

Let's pray for this man to get into politics at the local level. He would be a great addition to the Greensboro City Council. And who knows where he can go from there!

On Pope Francis and His "Friendship" With Scalfari: Is the Confusion Deliberate?

The conversations between Pope Francis and his atheist journalist "friend" continue again and again to be sources of conflict with quotes that are clarified as "not quotes" and statements that are said not to reflect what the pope really said. But, it seems, the points in the quotes are seldom refuted.  

Are the pope's discussions with Scalfari
a deliberate decision to sow confusion?
Phil Lawler urges Catholics to ask their bishops to
 "Bring back clarity in an age of confusion."
Confusing eh? And is that the point? If Pope Francis owned a company called Confusion Unlimited he could be described as a very successful CEO.

With regard to the pope's relationship with Scalfari, a friend on Facebook used the following analogy about Pope Francis who, as persona Christi, is called to protect his bride, the Church. It describes his relationship with his buddy Scalfari who, as an atheist, doesn't even recognize the bride. I think the analogy is spot on!

Mark Robinson Defends the Right of the Majority to Protect Themselves. Go, Mark!

Crime and Illegals: Watch Our for Lying Statistics!

Several thoughts:
  • The Left often blends legal and illegal immigrants to make the case that we are not at risk from "immigrants." That doesn't hold water when only illegals are evaluated.
  • A large number of Americans would still be alive if we protected our border from invasion. If the lives of 17 students at a Parkland high school are important enough for the Left to demand gun control, shouldn't the murders of many more Americans by illegals spark a call by the Left for border control? Can you spell hypocrisy?
  • If the victims of illegals' crimes were yourself or your mom, dad, son, daughter, brother, sister what would you do? Would you want to live in a "sanctuary city?"

The "Family" Feud between James Hitchcock and The Wanderer: Why, Dr. HItchcock?

Hey, we may share the same last name, but
I don't get what's going on either.
It reminds me of a movie I made once.
As I wrote several months ago (Can We Disband the Circular Firing Squads?), I'm baffled by historian James Hitchcock's vendetta against The Wanderer and two of their writers, Dexter Duggan and Chris Manion (not to mention a host of others including Judie Brown of American Life League; eminent Catholic author Joe Sobran (RIP); Paul Likoudis, longtime journalist for The Wanderer (RIP); Pat Buchanan; Chris Ferrara of The Remnant; etc.).

Ferrara responded to one of Hitchock's previous attacks back in 2007 when Hitchcock's spleen apparently hit maximum inflammation. His recent book - Abortion, Religious Freedom, and Catholic Politics  is filled with errors, misquotes, and general sloppy scholarship. How sad.

#IStandWithLaura - Foul-mouthed David Hogg targets Conservative Laura Ingraham

UPDATE: FOX Says Laura Stays!

David Hogg calls for boycott of Laura Ingraham.

Why? Because she tweeted about him getting rejected by several colleges to which he's applied. Really? That's a hanging offense? This young man who claims to be a leader of the free world and defender of all the victims of the Parkland shooting (Would they all support his politics?) is now crying that Laura targets "children." David, you can't have it both ways. Are you a spokesman who's smarter than your stupid parents Or are you a widdle kid who needs protection from big, bad Laura?

The Definitive Interview with Pope Francis

Eccles and Bosco just conducted the definitive interview with Pope Francis. It is such a relief to know that our Holy Father believes in hell:
Pope Francis admits that Hell exists
We have been lucky enough to be granted an interview with Pope Francis (yes, that Pope Francis). In fact we never actually met him, or spoke to him, but this is not considered necessary these days, and we have decided to make the whole thing up. Take it away, Francis!
"Yes, I know I allowed Scalfari to interview me - a 93-year-old lunatic who switches off his hearing aid when he interviews, doesn't take notes, and makes up his own account of what happened. And I know I've been fooled by him 489 times before. But we were told to forgive people 70 times 7 times, and this is the last," explained the Holy Father.
"And yes, Eccles, I do believe in Hell. Look, can you imagine something nastier than this?" [You'll have to go to the source to see the photos and the rest of the article.]
Thank God for laughter. It keeps us sane in an insane world.

You Didn't Really Believe the Kids Planned the March, Did You?

In the "secret" video below, Debbie Miller, an indoctrinator a "teacher" in the Broward County public schools, reveals exactly what was going on at the March for Our Lives. It was a setup from the beginning. And it's not about protecting the kids, it's about using the kids to ban guns and gut the second amendment. Note all the anti-gun organizations involved in organizing, doing media, arranging meetings with Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden, and donating to advance this radical agenda. Giffords is doing the PR, Southwest Airlines donated all the seats on the plane for this group of provocateurs! And at the end of the March they planned to go to the NEA building and "have hot chocolate." (Isn't that cute for all those student "leaders" who pulled off this massive protest in just a few weeks. Wow!) This teacher illustrates exactly what is happening in the public schools -- It's not education; it's indoctrination! They use kids, just like hospitals that do abortions use their preemie units to raise money. Read more here.

A Double Blessed Easter to All as We Rejoice in Our Risen Lord!

My grandfather, Raymond Michael Schneider was the organist at St. James Catholic Church in Lakewood, Ohio for many years. He had a well-respected mens' choir and a boys' choir as well. I think he would appreciate this performance of Mozart's Alleluia by young Aksel Rykkvin. I dedicate this post to him and to my grandmother, Marie Zurlinden Schneider.
