Do Google, Facebook, and Twitter Want to Turn Us into a Herd of Pigs?

Do Google, Facebook and Twitter see their users as the gadarene swine?
July 31, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Joseph Goebbels, head of the Third Reich’s Ministry of Propaganda once said, "Let me control the media and I will turn any nation into a herd of pigs." A handful of large corporations in the United States today control the bulk of information available to the public on the internet. Increasingly those who express unpopular opinions, diverging from the liberal mainstream’s narrative, are censored and banned. [Read more...]

A Question for Black Lives Matter? Did Bernell Trammell's Execution-Style Murder Matter?

Bernell Trammell was sitting in a lawn chair minding his own business outside his Milwaukee shop at lunchtime on July 23rd when he was shot execution style by an unknown assailant. Friends and neighbors are asking why. Many considered the 60-year-old a mentor and friend ready to help anyone in need.

Do Blue Lives Matter? How Many Police Officers Have Been Injured or Killed since the Riots Began?

Our police officers are working in a toxic environment because of the Marxist movements of Black Lives Matter and Antifa. These groups are anything but peaceful. Their agenda is to take down western culture by any means necessary. They often start out playing the peace card, but that doesn't last long. It's a strategy to get the useful dupes on board to join their protests. And wow! Does that work. BLM is growing with the help of leftist soccer moms and liberal white guilt. Have you seen the photos of the protests? BLM couldn't care less about the deadly toll of black on black violence -- all those black children killed in Chicago? Ho-hum!

Wuhan Virus Censorship: We're Living in the Goebbels Propaganda State....And It's Killing People!

UPDATE: The American Frontline Doctors website has been taken down by their provider. If you click on the link at the end of this post, you will get a message that the website expired. Baloney! The censors will do everything to make sure you only hear the "approved" narrative! It's the Goebbels machine on steroids!

Our censors are the mainstream media and giant corporations who make sure we only get the news they want us to get. Yesterday they all conspired together to remove a viral video that had tens of millions of views and shares within the eight hours it was up. What was so controversial about the video? It was a group of medical doctors with real patients (unlike Dr. Fauci) who disagree with the attack on hydroxychloroquine a medicine that is "safer than aspirin."

This is NOT the Country I Grew Up In!

We are in a war between the diabolical forces of evil who want the destruction of all that is good and holy and those who embrace the law of God and follow the golden rule, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

No Lives Matter! Liberals Hate Trump So Much, They Are Willing to Kill People!

Democrats killed thousands to get back at Trump

Hydroxychoroquine used early in the Wuhan virus with companion medications saves lives!  But once Trump supported its use, the Trump haters did everything they could to discredit it. Liberals don't mind killing people if it can advance their narrative. And that's what they did to stick it to the president and make sure his support for HCQ was ridiculed and banned.

Are We All Patients Now? What is the "Public Health Mafia" doing to us?

Where is the Public Health Mafia taking us?

The medical dynamic coming from Fauci and company is to convince us all that the Wuhan virus makes us a society of lepers.

Me and my mask! I wear my mask EVERYWHERE! I LOVE my mask!

"They" require people to wear masks? OK!! 
The grocery store now requires masks? YAY!
The pharmacy requires citizens to wear masks? HOORAY!
My mission is to make them sorry they ever asked me to wear a mask. 
How soon will it be before political masks are banned?
Be brave. Try it!
See how many people give you evil looks.
Better yet, see how many people agree.

Unity is Not the Preeminent Catholic Issue: False Unity Creates a Monster!

Jean-Baptiste de Champaigne 1678 (Detroit Museum of Art)
At the Last Supper, Jesus prayed for the unity of his followers – as He and the Father are one. “I pray that they may be one in us...I living in them, You living in me – that their unity may be complete.” (John 17:21-22) Earlier in the gospel John describes the Good Shepherd who knows his sheep including some who “do not belong to this fold.” But Jesus calls them too, “And they shall hear my voice. There shall be one flock then, one shepherd.” (John 10:16)

Need a Part-Time Job? This Looks Like Fun!

I got an email the other day with a picture of St. Lucy of Fatima that intrigued me. So I went to the link and watched the video.

Here's the email from July 1st. They may have hired as many folks as they want/need, but if you live near Chantilly and think this looks intriguing, why not give them a call. 

Mourning One More Wuhan Virus Casualty, the Death of Civility

Among the casualties of the Wuhan virus, one of the saddest to me is the death of civility. 

Musings on Islam

Jesus, the Muslim jihadist prophet.

... Muslims believe that Jesus is a great Muslim prophet as described in the teachings of Islam. The Quran says that Jesus will return at the end of the world as a Muslim warrior to convert or kill infidels, that is, Christians and Jews. That is ridiculous since Jesus would do no such thing, but this is what Islam teaches and what Muslims believe, i.e., Jesus will return as a Muslim jihadist. Islam teaches he always was a Muslim, just as it teaches that Abraham was the first Muslim. All Biblical prophets and even the Blessed Mother were all Muslims according to the Quran.

There will be another civil war if the Marxist Left BLM Party of Joe Biden wins.
Catholics, awake from your slumber.

So, Once More, When Are We Going to See the McCarrick Report from the Vatican?

Are they waiting for him to die?

Remember back in the Fall of 2018 when the bishops voted on the resolution to ask the Vatican to release the documents on the misconduct of Cardinal (now Mister) Theodore McCarrick? The measure failed on a vote of 137 to 83.  My own bishop Michael Burbidge said at the time "It did not get passed, not because we don't believe this is a very serious situation and it needs to be resolved, but because the proposal was merely encouraging the Holy See to do what they have promised to do and are doing. I didn't feel a strong need to give support to that." (Source)

President Trump is all that stands between the barbarians at the gate and us

The world is on the brink of global Marxism. 
If you vote for Joe, America is dead and the Church will be savagely persecuted. 
A vicious war will have to be fought to regain freedom. 
President Trump is the only thing standing in the way between us and our future masters.

Join the Louisiana Governor's Call for Prayer and Fasting!

Louisiana Catholic governor calls for prayer and fasting amid coronavirus

Joel 1:14
Consecrate a fast; call a solemn assembly. Gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land to the house of the Lord your God, and cry out to the Lord.

Is Fauci Auditioning for Stand-Up Comic?

Playing to the crowd
Put a curly red wig and a false nose on Anthony Fauci (Well, maybe he doesn't need the nose.) and you'll recognize him for the clown he is. He's stirred Wuhan virus panic since the beginning and most of his advice has been bad. He rides a seesaw from one interview to the next with his changing advice, but consistently sounds like Chicken Little on steroids.

If Trump had listened to Fauci's advice not to ban travel from China, the spread of the virus would likely be worse. As for the constant hand-wringing and gloom and doom, how exactly does that help?

Also, can we trust the data that's driving all this? Florida, for example, is a state showing a large surge in the virus. Is the data accurate? Well...not likely. As of July 14th, many labs were showing a 100% rate of positive tests. Everybody knows that's wrong but those are the numbers being reported. Hospitalizations and death rates tell more, but with the politicalization of the disease even that's questionable. It seemed in NYC that every death was attributed to the virus. What are the real statistics? Who knows?

Catholic Campaign for Human Development Funds Groups Calling to Kill Cops! #DefundCCHD

The Lepanto Institute exposes the abject evil of of CCHD. They are a major contributor to Marxist community organizing. The goup was poison from the beginning, a plan hatched by Msgr. Jack Egan and Saul Alinsky to pick the pockets of American Catholics using the poor as window dressing.

How Many Good Priests Have Been Thrown Under the Bus?

Double standard in action!
How many good priests have been thrown under the bus? Their number is legion. In my own diocese (Arlington) Bishop Burbidge eliminated two priests who were removed from ministry with the assurance they would be reinstated after a time. One was forced into early retirement; the other remains in liturgical limbo. Both are good priests who deserved better (as did their flocks). I grieve for these betrayed priests both of whom I know personally.

Will the Real Catholics Please Stand Up!

Our millstone award goes to the Catholic
Press Association and the fishwrap!
Anyone reading this blog for awhile knows that we consider Catholic Charities, Catholic Relief Services, and the Catholic Campaign for Human Development unworthy of any support from Catholics in the pews. If you want your money  to support abortion, contraception, and Marxist community organizing just toss it in the basket for those bogus Catholic collections. (Better to burn it!) But they aren't the only groups masquerading as Catholic while undermining the faith! There are plenty of others.

Communism is the Plan: Will We Listen to the Warning?

My friend Angie sent this message with the video from the President's recent roundtable in Florida.  

Let me repeat the advice from this Cuban immigrant's father, "If you lose this place (America), you will have no place to go." 

When Will We Get the Report on McCarrick from the Vatican?

It's been two years and we're still waiting for the promised report about Cardinal Theodore McCarrick. So much for Vatican transparency. Bishops have asked a number of times for the report to be released...the response?....crickets! Now why would that be?

Got History? It Does a Body (and a Mind) Good!

Thomas Woods, author of How the
Catholic Church built
Western Civilization
On Saturday morning an FSSP parish in Florida (Queen of Peace in Ocala) was attacked by a man who ran his minivan into the building and then set it on fire while worshipers prepared for morning Mass. In California, Mission St. Gabriel was gutted by a four-alarm fire that's under investigation.

Did you see anything about these two events on the national news?

Imagine if a mosque or a meeting of Black Lives Matter was the target. We'd be hearing about it non-stop! "A hate crime!"

But, no.... ho-hum. Hey, nobody was hurt. It's just Catholic churches and they all need to be knocked down anyway with those statues of the white Jesus inside. Yup...they all have to go, all the California missions and the statues of Junipero Serra, a champion of the native Americans on the West Coast.

The lies told about St. Junipero Serra are legion. The man who played such a huge role in developing California was noted for being a kind and loving father. In fact, recognizing that violence was possible, he begged for clemency for the Indians and left a written request that if he were killed his murderers should be pardoned. He walked to Mexico at one point to meet with government officials interceding for policies to help the natives.

There's Good News about COVID 19...

...but don't expect to hear it from the mainstream media.

Another doctor has good news about treating the Wuhan virus. Dr. Richard Bartlett is curing patients sick with the disease. (See more.)

After Five Days of Sanity with St. Ignatius, a Return to Insanity!

Insanity: This white elitist makes big bucks
 pandering to politically correct racist nonsense.
This is what the schools are pushing!
I didn't sleep very well on retreat. Having arrived with a basketful of stressers, like the possibility of my husband needing a replacement of his knee replacement (No longer a possibility, but a surety), the serious illness of a friend (She's back in the hospital), and some other issues (sigh),  I needed to make a serious effort to enter into the meditations. So many distractions!

Wisdom from Alice von Hildebrand

If you've never met Alice von Hildebrand, this is the perfect opportunity to explore her wisdom. I recommend everything she's ever written! I especially love her Memoirs of a Happy Failure.

Reminder: I'm on retreat and will not be posting comments until I return on Friday.

Monstrous Ellen G White and Seventh-day Adventists' anti-Catholic prophecy seminars

Muhammad's nasty twin sister, Ellen G White.
Twins, because both had Satanic visions.
The monstrous Ellen G White (1827-1915) co-founder and female pope of the Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) apostate religion had visions which were obviously from the devil, but which she said were from God, telling her that the devil resided in the Papacy of the Roman Catholic Church. Instead of Christ and the Church that He founded being the one true religion, Ellen G White made herself the founder of the "one true religion" of Seventh-day Adventist apostates, complete with their own papacy - the infallible papacy of Pope Ellen. SDAs are perpetually miffed because Saturday is no longer the sabbath, hence their name.

Pope Ellen had over 200 visions where she would shout "Glory!", be filled with superhuman strength, not breathe during the entire vision no doubt because she was living off the life-force of Lucifer, and, upon coming out of a vision and taking her first natural breath, Pope Ellen would exclaim in a long drawn out sigh, "D-a-r-k".

This Looks Interesting! A History of Black Conservatives! Yes, America, There are Conservative Black Citizens!

I haven't watched this yet. You can get it on demand or order the DVD here. So many blacks slandered by the liberal left are real role models. Think of what Joe Biden tried to do to Clarence Thomas. Think of what white liberals were saying whey they put Anita Hill in the black history museum and left Clarence Thomas out. The slave masters do everything they can to destroy any independent minded black who won't carry their water. It's shameful!

Going on Retreat -- No Comment Moderation until I Return.

I leave today for my annual 5-day silent Ignatian retreat so no comments will be posted until I return on Friday. I will be praying for you all and hope you will pray for me as well. Generally I schedule some posts for while I'm gone. I didn't get around to doing much of that this year and probably won't before I leave. But I may put up some links to the Spiritual Exercises.

 God bless you all and have a great week.

The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola have changed lives. I urge you to look into whether there is a retreat offered near you!

On Independence Day Do We Look More Like Philadelphia in 1787 or Paris in 1789?

Where to Celebrate Fourth of July Across the County | Montgomery ...

Those who are ignorant of history are condemned to repeat it. What is happening represents the long-planned Marxist plan to overthrow America. The riots are part of the plan -- to create a crisis. Wake up, people! Don't just celebrate Independence Day today, resolve to fight to take back our country from liberals and socialists. Do you know the candidates running in November in your area? Have you looked at their policies? Have you read the platforms of the Democrat Party and the Republican Party? Which is more in line with godly principles?

Can we stop the hysteria yet? We're well on the way to HIT!

Nobel Laureate Scientist Michael Levitt 
HIT = Herd Immunity Threshold 

As Mundabor says, "Spread the Sanity!" He links to a compelling article that begins with this:
Why did politicians ever lockdown society in the first place? Can we all agree that the stated purpose was to “flatten the curve” so our hospital system could handle the inevitable COVID-19 patients who needed care? At that point, at least, back in early March, people were behaving rationally. They accepted that you can’t eradicate a virus, so let’s postpone things enough to handle it.

How Many Die from COVID-19? Who knows?

Incivility is a curse of modern culture, unsurprising in view of the general increase in barbarism. Social media often looks like the free-for-all on "Black Friday." The shaming and virtue signaling war over COVID-19 is a case in point. On Sunday I posted a link to my blog on Facebook about the COVID-19 statistics. There was a reply from a young parishioner saying "You do realize that multiple hundreds of thousands of people have died from this right?" I responded saying, "You do realize there are 7 billion people on the planet and the global deaths are half a million similar to a bad flu season."  Then I went to Mass. Good grief, when I came home there were over 100 comments and the thread was so acrimonious (including a family feud) that  I went into my settings and blocked comments from anyone who is not a "friend." 

A Little Optimism from President Trump! And Don't We Need It?

Hate Trump all you want, he loves America unlike many of our liberal politicians who engage in a continuous mantra urging people to hate our patria, our homeland. Patria is the root of the words patriot and patriotism, the love of country. St. Thomas Aquinas describes piety (from the Latin pietas meaning dutifulness) as a special virtue that "pays duty and homage to our parents and country":  
"Just as religion is a protestation of faith, hope and charity, whereby man is primarily directed to God, so again piety is a protestation of the charity we bear towards our parents and country. (my emphasis) 
God save America!
