Dr. Marc Siegel: Virus response threatens our ability to 'stay together as a society'

Fox News contributor Dr. Marc Siegel added his voice to a growing chorus of medical, political and economic experts who are warning that the U.S. must change its approach to the coronavirus pandemic or risk doing more harm to the country than the actual disease.

"About three or four weeks from now, we're going to back off of these draconian measures because we won't be able to stay together as a society if we don't," warned Siegel on Fox Nation's "Deep Dive" on Monday.

How Long Will Americans Tolerate Corona-Madness?

A gentleman said this about Democrats/fake news media in an email, "...they are willing to destroy hard working people's jobs to accomplish their power play." This guy is spot on correct. This is why I regard Democrats'/fake news medias' gleeful spread of corona-madness so loathsome and evil.

Democrats and fake news media are 100% committed to destroying Trump, their greatest Nemesis. Collapsing the U.S. economy and even the loss of American lives is acceptable collateral damage in their quest for power to control every aspect of our lives. They believe corona is their highly sought-after kryptonite to kill We-the-Peoples' superman president.

No Mass, no offertory: Parish, diocesan, national collections take a hit

One byproduct of canceled Masses is no offertory collection. And a byproduct of no offertory collection is puncture wounds in the budgets of parishes, dioceses and national collections.

"It's a big hit, and it's gonna hurt," said Patrick Markey, executive director of the Diocesan Fiscal Management Conference, based in Phoenix.

Bankruptcy judge approves New Ulm Diocese's clergy sex abuse settlement

A U.S. bankruptcy judge gave final approval March 10 to a $34 million settlement agreement between 93 victim-survivors of clergy sexual abuse and the Diocese of New Ulm, Minnesota, as well as parishes within the diocese.

Claimants voted unanimously to approve the settlement.

Judge Robert Kressel's final approval clears the way for the 93 clergy abuse survivors to begin receiving compensation under the settlement. It also marks the end of a three-year bankruptcy process for the diocese. The diocese also has committed to 17 child protection protocols.

DC Priest Who Shook 500 Hands at Communion Has Coronavirus

A D.C. priest has Coronavirus. He offered communion and shook hands with more than 500 worshippers last week and on February 24th,” tweeted ABC7’s Sam Sweeney.

“All worshippers who visited the Christ Church in Georgetown must self-quarantine. Church is cancelled for the first time since the 1800’s.”

Obeisance to the “Greater Good”

We can look upon otherwise-advanced cultures such as the Egyptians, the Romans, the Aztecs, etc., and shake our heads at their naivete. All of them created great ceremonies that involved blood sacrifices, in order to appease the deities.

So, how are we doing? Have we banished paganism from the modern world?

Well, unfortunately, no. We may live in a more technological age, yet human nature remains the same. Those who are not highly focused within themselves have the perennial tendency to want to put their faith in some magical entity out there who will smile upon them and make all the bad things go away.

Evangelical Pastor Claims U.S. Will Be ‘Minimally Affected’ By Coronavirus Because Of Trump’s Support For Israel

Zionist evangelical pastor Jonathan Shuttlesworth predicted during a recent livestream that ‘America will be minimally affected’ by the global coronavirus outbreak because of President Donald Trump’s support for the state of Israel:

“If it’s a plan from the deep state to practice shutting America down [for] population control, it will fail,” Shuttlesworth said. “The Lord looks at the plans of the wicked and laughs, and men can’t override God’s blessing.”

“If God is for you, who can be against you?” he asked. “Read the Bible. A nation doesn’t have to be run by a perfect man for God to give goodness to a nation. ‘I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse those who curse you.’ Even Trump’s critics would have to say that he honors Israel. Now they can say, ‘He just does it to appeal to the Christian [base].’”

Whoops! A holiday missed! Remembering Liberty and Patrick!

Ireland and her people have always and nearly constantly battled against others to win and keep their liberty. For all of recorded history, Irish patriots have been challenged by internal tyrants and bandits (often with little to tell the two apart). The Emerald Isle has been a constant attraction to invaders, including Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Danes and other Vikings, the Norman French and last (and longest), their English and Scots neighbors. Other, more subtle invasions have been a problem as well. In modern times, the submission of Ireland to the European Union is such a problem. But there are more forms of tyranny. These include organized religion: churches. Specifically the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of Ireland (part of the Church of England – Anglican).

Dozens of Catholic Priests Credibly Accused of Abuse Found Work Abroad, Some With the Church’s Blessing

The Rev. Jose Antonio Pinal, a young priest from Mexico, arrived at his first parish in rural Northern California in 1980, fresh out of seminary. The priest befriended the Torres family, helping the parents, also immigrants from Mexico, to fill out an application for food stamps. Pinal became an occasional dinner guest and took the children to theme parks and on road trips along the Pacific coast. He encouraged 15-year-old Ricardo Torres to become an altar boy.

But in the priest’s quarters at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in the small city of Gridley, Torres said, Pinal, then 30, gave him alcohol, showed him movies with sex and nudity, and groped and raped him. The teenager told another priest in 1989 and the family was assured by lawyers for the diocese that Pinal would not be allowed around children, Torres said.

Catholic Church Shields $2 Billion in Assets to Limit Abuse Payouts

For most of the 20th century, the Catholic Church in the U.S. minimized the damage wrought by pedophile priests by covering up the abuse. When the bishop of the Davenport, Iowa, diocese was told in the mid-1950s that one of his priests was sexually abusing boys at a local YMCA, he kept it secret. “It is consoling to know that no general notoriety has arisen, and I pray none may result,” he wrote to a priest, capturing the strategy of the era.

NEWS/ASIA PACIFICFighting in Rakhine, Chin states rages as Myanmar limits internet

Yangon, Myanmar - Continued fighting between Myanmar's military and the Arakan Army armed group has left several people dead in recent days as the government continues a clampdown on the western region.

Activists and journalists have decried the internet blackout the government has imposed as part of the clampdown as a violation of human rights.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I never used to think, that I would ever have to say, "watch out, folks, here comes a highly nationalistic Buddhist Army, ready to exterminate the Muslim Rohingya in their country!!"

Unfortunately, Myanmar, and its military, has proven me wrong on this one.

Remembering The Alamo

Also remember Goliad where 400 Texicans were massacred after surrendering by Santa Ana and the Mexican Army!

Tomorrow, March 6, marks the anniversary of the fall of the Alamo outside of San Antonio, Texas, back in 1836. This event is so significant in my mind that I always try to devote a column that honors the heroism of these men on or around the anniversary of the occasion.

For 13 days, 189 brave and determined patriots withstood Santa Anna’s seasoned army of over 4,000 troops. To a man, the defenders of that mission fort knew that they would never leave those ramparts alive. They had several opportunities to leave and live. Yet they chose to fight and die. How foolish they must look to this generation of spoiled Americans.

Forced Islamisation at Swedish School as 9-Year-Olds Confess to Allah in Religious Studies – Reports

According to a disturbed parent, the teacher threatened her daughter with detention if she refused to participate in a lesson that included confessing to the Islamic faith in a letter and prayer.

Söderfors School in Tierp has come under fire for its unorthodox methods of teaching religious studies.

According to the news portal Katerina Magasin, third-graders were forced to confess to Islam and Allah in a letter during a lesson in religious studies. Among other things, the nine-year-olds had to write “I belong to Islam”.

Anamaria von Roteliuc, the mother of a nine-year-old girl, told the magazine the pupils also had to participate in a prayer, while a minaret call was played in the classroom. Furthermore, the children had to colour a mosque on a piece of paper.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a parent of a kid at that school who had been forced to identify with a religion other than their own, I would pull that kid out of school so fast, as to make the administration's head spin.

I would then either "vote with my feet", and leave Sweden as a "religious refugee", or find a job in another country which does not enforce the teaching of one religion over another in this way.

African Methodists Stand Against LGBTQ Takeover

Last year traditionalists beat back the takeover attempt by LGBTQ activists of the United Methodist Church (UMC), soundly defeating them 53-47% at their annual conference.

Lesbian priests to lead church service on eve of Anglican summit

LGBT+ campaigners will hold a church service led by two high-profile married lesbian priests on the eve of the Lambeth conference, a once-a-decade assembly of Anglican bishops from around the world that is expected to be dominated by conflicts over sexuality and marriage.

The move is likely to rile conservative bishops who maintain that homosexuality is a sin.

An “inclusive” eucharist at a church in Canterbury will be presided over by the Rt Rev Mary Glasspool, the assistant bishop in New York. The preacher will be the Rev Canon Mpho Tutu van Furth, a daughter of Desmond Tutu, the veteran South African anti-apartheid campaigner.

The Real Contagion is Fear

Why is the Illuminati media stoking fears of a global pandemic and financial meltdown? The purpose may be to reduce us to our most primitive survival instincts. From the threat of nuclear war in the 1960's to routine pandemic scares today, fear is a weapon of social & spiritual control.

The psychological equation is: if there is fear, then the virus must be dangerous. But this is actually like saying: if a man walking on a street at night believes a mugger is about to parachute out of the sky, the sky-mugger must be real.

BUFFALO DIOCESE DECLARES BANKRUPTCY

The scandal-ridden diocese of Buffalo has filed for bankruptcy protection, thus enabling it to shelter not only financial assets but also many facts about abusive priests.

With cases from alleged victims of clerical sex abuse mounting and insurance companies vowing not to pay, on Friday, Buffalo joined more than 20 other dioceses by filing for bankruptcy protection. In a news conference announcing the filing, Bp. Edward Scharfenberger, apostolic administrator of the diocese, told reporters the move would result in fair resolutions:

My hope is that, going forward, regardless of the mistakes we have made, regardless of the suspicions that may rightfully have been raised about the way things were done, going forward, we're going to see a lot of action that will result in very fair resolutions as much as we can.

Greek Orthodox church in Lesvos vandalised by refugees

Images are emerging of a Greek Orthodox church in Lesvos which was vandalised by refugees.

On Monday, more than 500 refugees grouped together to head down to the port of Mytilini from Moria camp.

The group were confronted by members of MAT (Tactical Police) along the way, and resorted to stoning the Greek authorities in order to continue in their journey, only to be met with chemical and flash grenades.

Residents on Lesvos remain united and are trying to maintain a strong front against the situation unfolding on their island.

Turkey in Syria: Down a Blind Alley in an Unwinnable War?

Turkish Forces Will Leave Syria – One Way or Another

Turkish troops will not be able to remain indefinitely in Syria. Their proxies will eventually be liquidated and the positions of Turkish forces surrounded by Syrian forces. In many areas of Idlib this is already the case. Additional Turkish troops and supplies fed into losing battles and what is ultimately a lost war will only delay the inevitable undoing of Turkish interests in Syria.

Ankara could – on the other hand – begin aligning its policies with the reality of what is happening in Idlib and expand its cooperation with Russia and Iran regarding the Syrian conflict – incrementally withdrawing support from militant groups, encouraging them to disarm and surrender, and gradually handing over Turkish positions within Syria to the actual military, government, and people of Syria.

Sharia in the USA: Christians Jailed for Preaching to Muslims–Dearborn, MI Officials Sued

The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) announced today that the City of Dearborn, its Mayor, John B. O’Reilly, its Chief of Police, Ronald Haddad, 17 City police officers, and two executives of the American Arab Chamber of Commerce were named as defendants in a ninety-six page federal civil rights lawsuit filed in the Federal District Court in Detroit this morning.

The lawsuit, brought by TMLC and co-counsel and Sharia law expert, David Yerushalmi, stems from two separate police actions at the June 2010 Dearborn, Michigan Annual International Arab Festival.

Pope asks Catholics to give up trolling for Lent, gets trolled twice as hard

The Pope has called on his followers to forsake online “verbal violence” for Lent, complaining that trolling has become as commonplace as saying hello. Of course, that instruction has only encouraged the trolls.
Pope Francis called on Catholics to “give up useless words, gossip, rumors, tittle-tattle and speak to God on a first name basis” in remarks on Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent, the 40-day repentance period in which Catholics traditionally put aside something pleasurable.

US city grants mosques preliminary approval to broadcast call to prayer over loudspeakers

The US city of Paterson, New Jersey, has backed an ordinance to allow the adhan, the Muslim call to prayer, to be broadcast over loudspeakers.

Under the new measure, which still has to go through two public hearings before being implemented, the adhan would be exempt from the city's noise control ordinance and allowed to be broadcast outside every day between 6am and 10pm.

The resolution was approved by council members on Tuesday by a vote of 7-0, with two members abstaining.

"We applaud Paterson officials for taking this admirable step toward inclusion, and encourage them to pass the proposed ordinance," said Salaedin Maksut, executive director of the New Jersey chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Pregnant secretary of Pope Francis found dead in her Rome apartment

The Pope's pregnant receptionist has been found dead in her apartment on the outskirts of the city.

Miriam Wuolou, a 34-year-old of Eritrean origin, was seven-months pregnant when her body was discovered.

She had worked at Pope Francis' home and a priests' guesthouse called Santa Marta for years.

The Italian press reports she worked as a kind of gatekeeper for the Pontiff, as well as for the bishops and cardinals who stay there.

The Pope opted to live at the Santa Marta guesthouse after his appointment in 2013, rejecting the grand papal apartments because he found them too sumptuous and he feared isolation.

Trump Imitates Democrats, Celebrates Homosexuality

We may be witnessing the greatest moral pivot of our time, and it may be the tipping point that brings about the end of America as we know it. Seemingly overnight, Democrat and Republican leaders are all waving rainbow flags, heralding the advent of Sodom.

America is quickly becoming like Sodom and Gomorrah, and as we fall headlong into the 2020 presidential election season, there are those of us who want to see it stop.

We know the liberal Democrats have been supporting degenerate homosexuals for years. The tragedy is that now we are given no other options, even from Republicans. On this crucial issue, Trump has sold the farm and joined forces with the Democrats.

More than a dozen killed, hundreds injured as New Delhi riots overshadow Trump visit

More than a dozen people have been killed and hundreds injured in clashes between opposing groups of protesters in New Delhi, hospital officials said on Tuesday, as riots overshadowed U.S. President Donald Trump’s first visit to India.

The clashes, the worst in the capital since unrest over a new citizenship law began in December, started at the weekend but turned deadly on Monday. Violence erupted again in multiple areas of northeast Delhi on Tuesday, just miles away from where Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met for talks.

India’s capital has been a focus of unrest against the Citizenship Amendment Act, which makes it easier for non-Muslims from three neighbouring Muslim-dominated countries to gain Indian citizenship.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears as though the world's largest democracy is sliding, irrevocably, into a slow burning anarchy, from which it may never recover, after the passage of this law.

Francis Waves Nazi Flag To Justify Illegal Immigration

Pushing the fear button twice, Francis said during his Sunday visit in Bari, Italy, that "it frightens me when I hear speeches of some populist political leaders as they seem like the kind of speeches that sowed fear and then hatred in the 1930s.”

He did not give any examples but went on pressing the fear button a third time, "Fear is leading to a sense that we need to defend ourselves against what is depicted in demagogic terms as an invasion.”

Francis simplistically calls the clash of civilisations “rhetoric” which allegedly serve to justify "violence" and to "nurture hatred." Again no examples were given.

YOUTUBE BANS CHRISTIAN BROADCASTER TRUNEWS FOR 'HATE SPEECH'

Christian pastor Rick Wiles' channel TruNews was permanently banned from Google-owned YouTube on Thursday for "hate speech."

"It was only a matter of time, YouTube finally canceled our channel," Wiles said on his show Thursday. "What was our crime? They accused us of hate speech."

"Of course, there is no such thing as hate speech -- it's a crime that was invented by the political left several decades ago," he said. "What it really means is free speech that somebody doesn't like."

Wiles said the "final nail in the coffin" according to YouTube was their February 12 interview with Israeli News Live's Steve and Jana Ben-Nun titled, "Christianity Vs. Evangelical Zionism."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not wish to conjecture about "the gates of hell", but I would like to suggest that Pastor Wiles, and his brother and sister Christian broadcasters, need to gather at the "gates of pragmatism".

There are going to be some real, and radical improvements in radio signal distribution, which will not need huge budgets, offices, or studios, but will ultimately reach out to a far greater number of people than current technology will allow; this is the "wave" Christian broadcasters need to be riding, and about which they need to educate themselves and their staffs.

And major congrats to YouTube, and your CEO, Sundar Pichai, for having become this government's Surveillance Arm; all that money you receive, for stomping down people with whom you, and this government, disagree so vehemently, that you shut people out for "non-conforming" ideas, must be ... comforting; at least for now.

The State and Heresy

The key text for Christians is chapter 13 of St. Paul’s Epistle to the Romans, which begins: “You must all obey the governing authorities. Since all government comes from God, the civil authorities were appointed by God, and so anyone who resists authority is rebelling against God’s decision, and such an act is bound to be punished.

Today almost nobody holds the position of Romans 13 in its full rigor, if that means a duty of unqualified submission to whatever regime happens to exist. Nearly all Christians distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate regimes; if rebellion is always a sin, how can we have a duty to obey the successful rebel when he assumes power? Must we obey the tsar one day, and the Lenin who topples him the next? Does Paul mean to say: “Thou shalt obey anyone who holds coercive power over thee”?

Vatican investigators raided the office and residence of the investment manager of the Vatican Secretariat of State Tuesday morning and seized documents and computer equipment as part of its ongoing probe into the financial scandal involving the purchase of a London property worth $220 million.

According to a press release from the Vatican press office, the search was ordered by Promoter of Justice Gian Piero Milano and Deputy Alessandro Diddi on the premises of Msgr. Alberto Perlasca, former Head of Administrative Office of the First Section of the Secretariat of State.

Perlasca headed the office responsible for managing Vatican investments and for overseeing the administration of the Peter's Pence fund. On July 26, Pope Francis appointed him Promoter of Justice at the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura — chief prosecutor of the Vatican's supreme court.

The diocese of Richmond, Virginia is agreeing to compensate childhood victims of clergy sexual abuse but only if they agree to never sue the diocese.

On Monday, the diocese headed by Bp. Barry Knestout launched its "Independent Reconciliation Program" (program). A protocol of the program stipulates that a victim or "claimant" in signing the agreement or "release" forever surrenders the right to have the abuse case publically litigated in court.

"By signing the release, the claimant will waive any future civil legal claim relating to sexual abuse against the Richmond diocese," reads the protocol.

US Boy Scouts files for bankruptcy after abuse scandal

The Boy Scouts of America filed for bankruptcy Tuesday in what it said was an effort to safeguard compensation payouts for sexual abuse victims.

The organization has been accused of covering up generations of abuse inflicted on thousands of its young members and failing to do enough to root out pedophiles using the youth movement to prey on minors over its 110-year history.

Bankruptcy proceedings will help the Boy Scouts to “equitably compensate” victims through the establishment of a victims’ compensation trust and allow the organization to continue at a local level, a statement from the group said.

“The BSA cares deeply about all victims of abuse and sincerely apologizes to anyone who was harmed during their time in Scouting,” chief executive Roger Mosby said in the statement.

The organization estimates liabilities of up to $1 billion, according to court filings lodged Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think I am about to be a little sick, upon reading this; that people in leadership in the BSA, like their sexually carnivorous, predatory brothers in various areas of the clergy, believe that it is completely normal to misuse the power of their office, and hurt kids, is deviant, immoral, and unacceptable.

NO kid should have to put up with this, period, end of discussion.

And unless the Catholic church addresses this issue head on, just like the Boy Scouts, they are going to wind up bankrupt, and selling cathedrals to pay damages for these horrific actions against kids.

Understanding why they lie and why they get away with it

Is there really anybody out there who will deny that the US government lies pretty much about everything and anything?. And it’s not just the Executive Branch, Congress lies possibly even more (both parties, of course). In fact, I would argue that lying is both necessary AND expected from any US politician. When somebody like Tulsi Gabbard or Ron Paul don’t abide by this rule, the media immediately dismisses them as “Putin agents” or something equally insipid.

The truth is that lies have become the norm of the western political discourse.

That is bad enough by itself. But there is worse.

The worst is not that western politicians lie, the worst is that almost nobody cares.

That is really scary.

Why?

Evangelist Exposes "Evangelical Deep State"

Southern Baptist evangelist Thomas Littleton of Alabama joins The New American magazine's Alex Newman to discuss the "Evangelical Deep State." Among other topics, they talk about how false doctrines and dangerous heresies--especially on homosexuality and transgenderism (LGBT), as well as Social Justice, Critical Race Theory, and Cultural Marxism--are infiltrating even conservative evangelical churches in America. Part of it is funding from Deep State globalists hostile to the church and the Bible, and part of it is a lack of discernment among pastors and Christian leaders. Alex and Tom discuss the Southern Baptist Convention, the Presbyterian Church, and others. Tom names Albert Mohler as one of the key figures facilitating this.

Turkish Police Recover Stolen jewish Torah Scrolls Decorated With Satanic Illuminati Symbolism

Turkish Police arrested Faylaq al-Rahman fighters who were trying to sell two rare, ancient, gold-plated jewish Torahs in the northwestern province of Bilecik. The Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah said that Police had confiscated the two ancient Torahs during the arrest. Syrian opposition sources confirmed that Faylaq al-Rahman fighters had stolen the ancient Torahs from a historical 2,000 years old synagogue in the Jobar district, east of the Syrian capital of Damascus. They contain plenty of more Satanic symbolism such as the demon Baphomet, Illuminati triangle with the all seeing eye, blood libel, serpents, kabbalah hand signs, owls and many other things.

DETROIT ARCHBISHOP SUED FOR FRAUD

In a first for the archdiocese of Detroit, and possibly for the U.S. Church, the archbishop is being sued for fraud related to a sex abuse allegation.

A lawsuit filed Friday by a group of parishioners at Our Lady of the Assumption parish is accusing both Abp. Allen Vigneron (recently elected vice president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops) and Episcopal Vicar Msgr. Michael Bugarin of fraud and intentional infliction of emotional distress, after their pastor, Fr. Eduard Perrone, was suspended over what they claim is a fabricated rape charge.

"John Doe refused to give Bugarin what he wanted, so Bugarin just fabricated a rape allegation out of desperation and wishful thinking," the complaint reads.

Pope Francis endorses wealth redistribution, calls for an end to tax cuts for the ‘richest people’

Pope Francis blasted the practice of tax cuts for the rich as part of a “structure of sin” and lamented the fact that “billions of dollars” end up in “tax haven accounts” instead of funding “healthcare and education.”

Speaking at the seminar set up by the Pontifical Academy for Social Sciences the Pope criticized “the richest people” for receiving “repeated tax cuts” in the name of “investment and development.” These “tax haven accounts” impede “the possibility of the dignified and sustained development of all social agents,” claims the Pope.

He added that “the poor increase around us” as poverty is rising around the world. This poverty can be ended if the wealthiest gave more.

Turkey Moves Toward Passage Of Controversial "Marry Your Rapist" Law

Authored by Jonathan Turley,

We have often discussed the struggle of women in Muslim countries in resisting religious-based requirements for coverings and limitations on their movements and interactions. Turkey was once the exception among these countries as a secular, modern nation. That was before the rise of Islamic parties under the authoritarian President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Turkey under Erdogan has already rolled back on protections for girls and women in abuse cases.

Now the country is considering a horrific law aptly called the “marry-your-rapist” bill.

Under this legislation, men accused of having sex with underaged girls could avoid punishment if they marry their victims.

Evangelicals Love Donald Trump for Many Reasons, But One of Them Is Especially Terrifying

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who was reportedly instrumental in pushing for the killing of Soleimani, is also a master of such messaging. In March, during an interview in Jerusalem with the Christian Broadcasting Network (founded by another apocalyptic preacher, Pat Robertson), Pompeo showed his familiarity with another Iran-centric Bible story popular with End Times evangelicals. In the story, a Persian king is urged to slaughter the Jews in his kingdom at the urging of the evil adviser Haman. But his Jewish Queen Esther convinces him not to and saves her people. Asked whether he thought Trump could be a modern-day Esther, saving the Jews from Iran, Pompeo replied, “As a Christian, I certainly believe that’s possible.” The secretary of state’s End Times beliefs made headlines again after the Soleimani killing, as meme-makers circulated a quote from a speech he made in a Kansas church in 2015.

Treaty Between the United States and Tripoli

"As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion," the Article begins. And so, for those who advocate for the complete separation of church and state, the article is seen as an early vindication of the position, especially since the treaty was approved by a Senate that recently approved the Bill of Rights.

Insightful Photos of 1960s Afghanistan Reveal What Life Was Like Before the Taliban

Somebody retitled this article making it propaganda. This is how Afghanistan looked before the district of criminals took an interest.

University professor Dr. Bill Podlich captured this phase in history when he travelled to Afghanistan in 1967 with Margaret, his wife, and Jan and Peg, their two teenage daughters. The main reason for their relocation revolved around Dr. Podlich’s desire to become the Expert of Principles of Education at the Higher Teachers College of Kabul. Aside from teaching, the professor also used his Kodachrome film camera to hold onto 1960s Afghanistan and to document the relationships he’d forged with many Afghans.

A "Pro-Life Hero"? Trump Becomes First President To Speak At 'March For Life'

After the editor of Christianity Today infuriated the president and stunned the American evangelical community by declaring that President Trump should be booted from office, the president has apparently found a way to show this critical constituency of his base that he truly is fighting for them.

According to the Washington Post, in an unprecedented move, Trump is slated to become the first sitting American president to speak at the 'March for Life' - an annual rally in Washington that draws hundreds of thousands of anti-abortion activists. This despite the frequent criticism leveled at the president complaining that he doesn't respect religion, despite having appointed two conservative justices to SCOTUS and hundreds more to the federal bench.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a real, moral problem with the "disposable culture" in which we find ourselves living, in 21st century America; and that is, when people... become as disposable as a burned out light bulb; particularly those not yet born.

I think that this country needs to change the narrative on the issue; and while I know that some pregnancies just cannot come to term, as in the case of something as awful as insufficient fetal development, we need to put a lot more attention on adoption, and make it easier for women with unplanned pregnancies to surrender that child for a family to adopt, however that family shakes out.

What Trump Didn’t Know About Cultural Locations in Iran

President Donald Trump’s comment about bombing 52 cultural sights of Iran if the Iranians retaliated against the U.S. assassination by killer drone of a top Iranian military officer was walked back the Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. “The U.S. will comply with the Law of Armed conflict” which forbids the destruction of cultural sites, Esper said.

General Qassem Soleimani was killed while reportedly on a diplomatic mission to Iraq to discuss talks with Saudi Arabia.

Trump’s Katyusha Conundrum

Katyushas are short-range, unguided artillery rockets typically fired in salvos from truck-mounted launch-tubes. Iraq’s insurgents deploy three types.

The smallest is 107 millimeters in diameter and 1 meter long. Its 19 kilogram weight includes an 8 kg high-explosive, shrapnel-bearing warhead. The 107mm is often fired from a 12-tube launcher, however, infantry-portable single-tube tripods are common. An experienced crew with a standardized weapon can hit a 400 X 400 meter target from 8 kilometers away. During the Vietnam War the US Army considered the 107mm to be their adversaries’ most formidable weapon.

The 122mm ‘Grad’ Katyusha is 3 meters long and weighs 75 kg. Its warhead spans a third of its length and weighs 18 kg. It has a 20-kilometer range and a 30-meter lethal radius.

220mm Katyushas hurl 100 kg warheads 30 kilometers.

MLK Holiday is Proof the US is Closet Communist

by the late, great Alan Stang
(Excerpts by henrymakow.com)

There are five important aspects of Martin Luther King's career: 1) his Communist Party activities; 2) the violence that always erupted in a King demonstration; 3) his plagiarism; 4) his sexual pathology; 5) his pagan beliefs.

Martin Luther King attended a Communist training school in Tennessee. A famous picture shows him enjoying a lecture in the company of Communist Aubrey Williams and Abner W. Berry, a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party. Rosa Parks, who helped King launch the Montgomery Bus Boycott, learned how to do it at the same Communist training school.

Why Christians Should Not Pray for the Troops

‘When men hire themselves out to shoot other men to order, asking nothing about the justice of their cause, I don’t care if they are shot themselves.’” ~ Herbert Spencer (1820-1903)

I have already heard, and heard reports of, conservative Christians expressing the opinion that we should pray for the troops being deployed to the Middle East. We should pray for their safety, pray that they be kept out of harm’s way, pray that they avenge the attacks on the American embassy in Iraq, pray that they neutralize the threats to the United States, and pray that they get the terrorists before they get us.

A more shameful prayer has never been uttered.

U.S. soldiers are invaders, occupiers, destroyers, aggressors, and killers. As a conservative Christian, I cannot in good conscience pray for their safety or the success of their mission. And I fail to see how any Christian can.

Trump’s Killing of Soleimani: New “Worst Mistake in US History”

Donald Trump occasionally utters unspeakable truths. In March 2018 he called Bush Jr.’s decision to invade Iraq “the worst single mistake in US history.” Earlier, Trump had said that Bush should have been impeached for launching that disastrous war.

Yet on January 2 2020 Trump made a much bigger mistake: He launched all-out war with Iran—a war that will be joined by millions of anti-US non-Iranians, including Iraqis—by murdering Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the legendary hero who defeated ISIS, alongside the popular Iraqi commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. Gen. Soleimani was by far the most popular figure in Iran, where he polled over 80% popularity, and throughout much of the Middle East. He was also adored by millions even outside that region, non-Muslims as well as Muslims. Many Christians throughout the world loved Gen. Soleimani, whose campaign against ISIS saved the lives of thousands of their co-religionists.

Modern Israel: The Common Denominator Behind All False Gospels

Like the Jews in ancient times, modern charismatic’s are sign seekers. They need miraculous proof of God’s existence and presence in the world and in their lives as a catalyst for their faith. The Jews demanded signs out of Moses, out of the prophets, as well as Jesus Himself. This is a false gospel that places the emphasis on the signs and supposed spiritual gifts as evidence of salvation rather than on the power of Jesus Himself, and the Cross of Christ. This is why so many charismatics are obsessed with signs and wonders, prophecy and modern Israel. Their faith is in the power of supposed signs, rather than the Cross.

America the Repugnant. Assassinating Foreign Leaders Is an Act of War

Trump is now the Head Swamp Monster. What this war criminal did is an impeachable offence and a war crime. This moron has put a target on the back of every US Government official.

Once upon a time there was a Constitution of the United States. In Article II, Section 2 it stipulated that only the U.S. Congress has the power to declare war, which means the American president has to go to the legislative body and make a case for going to war against an enemy or enemies. If there is a vote in favor of war, the president is empowered as commander-in-chief to direct the available resources against the enemy.

Targeting a base with thousands of officers and soldiers from hundreds of kilometres away and deliberately avoiding human casualties shows incredible self-confidence in Iran’s manufacture of their own missiles. Iran has shown the strength and technical ability to bomb the most powerful US base in Iraq with precision missiles and has now twice shown mercy by not killing US servicemen.

Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi has condemned US assassination of IRGC Quds Force commander General Qassem Soleimani, warning of devastating consequences for Iraq as senior Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr put all his forces on alert.Sadr sent his condolences to the Iranian nation and Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamanei.

He condemned the targeted assassination of General Soleimani and al-Muhandis as an attempt by Washington to stifle anti-US sentiments in Iraq and the nation's resolve to uproot foreign-backed terrorism.

The cleric also ordered all his forces to maintain readiness to defend the Arab country against further violations by American forces.

On Sunday, during what would otherwise likely be a quiet worship service at the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas, an armed gunman entered the church and after talking to a man for several minutes in the corner, pulled out a shotgun and opened fire.

The gunman, as was witnessed in recorded video of the entire incident, barely managed to get off more than a few rounds before an armed security guard standing 50 feet away from the shooter drew his pistol and fired a single shot, instantly killing the gunman with what appeared to be a perfectly placed head shot.

2019 ends and 2020 begins in a wave of antisemitism hysteria

By Carolyn Yeager

THE CHARGE OF ANTISEMITISM HAS BECOME THE PREFERRED CUDGEL used to beat the non-Jewish world into submission to Jewish demands. Ronald Lauder takes off the gloves

A brand new “antisemitism watchdog group” was also announced in December: the Antisemitism Accountability Project (ASAP), meant to provide action rather than simply 'talking about the problem'. It's funded with $25 million to start by Ronald S. Lauder, cosmetics billionaire and long-time president of the World Jewish Congress (pictured in his New York office below left).

The 'action' from the ASAP will be watching (“we are watching you”) for antisemitism in universities and college classrooms, monitoring for antisemitic pro-BDS bills as well as classes where professors or lecturers espouse antisemitism. Student snitches, Lauder said, will monitor the classrooms and if there are lecturers who engage in antisemitism, “We will go after their reputation.”

But the commentaries in English, Chinese and Malay have backfired, causing outrage online and among the country’s leading Muslim intellectuals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This "re-education" campaign is either an attempt at a complete ethnic cleansing of the Uygur people, or a way to clamp down on anti-Chinese violence; depending on what the Chinese believe they will gain from their efforts. And perhaps, a bit of both elements are at work here.

'Militarising Christmas': Israeli army slammed over 'repugnant' Twitter postSocial media users call out the IDF a day after it admitted making 'mistakes' when it bombed and killed a family in Gaza

The Israeli army has been slammed for a 'Christmas' themed Twitter post in which it celebrated the festive period by baking a F-35 fighter-jet made from gingerbread.

In the 30-second video, a group of Israeli soldiers, some of whom are wearing military-style clothing, can be seen decorating the F-35 jet with sweets, chocolates and Oreo cookies.

The video, which has an acapella-style song playing throughout, ends with a soldier holding up the jet as the text 'Happy Holidays' fill the screen.

"While some bake gingerbread houses, we decided to go with an F35 jet ????#MerryChristmas to all our Christian soldiers and to all those celebrating around the world!"

Australian media such as Channel 9, The SMH and Channel 7 have used Christmas and Christmas day to start promoting the Hillsong Church and Pastor Brian Houston in a positive way even though Brian Houston is still under investigation by NSW police for concealing his father’s sexual abuse of children.

It’s absolutely disgusting and a slap in the face for survivors and without a doubt has either direct or indirect influence by Prime Minister Scott Morrison who has previously used his position to promote Brian Houston and the Hillsong Church.

Israel prevents hundreds of Gaza's Christians from Bethlehem Christmas pilgrimage despite lifting ban

Christians from around the world have arrived in the West Bank town of Bethlehem ahead of Christmas day, while hundreds of Palestinian Christians from Gaza have been blocked by Israel from undertaking the pilgrimage.

Over 3.5 million tourists visit the city during this time, queuing to visit the grotto inside Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity, believed to be the exact site where Jesus was born.

Palestinian tourism minister Rula Maaya told AFP it had been a good year, but fewer Christians from the Gaza Strip were in attendance than in previous years.

Wadie Abunassar, an advisor to and spokesman for church leaders in the Holy Land, said out of the 951 applications from Gazans so far, only 192 had been granted.

This comes after Israel announced on Sunday that it will allow Christians in the Gaza Strip to travel to Jerusalem and the West Bank for Christmas, reversing an April decision to ban them from leaving the besieged Palestinian enclave.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Oh, sure, all Gazan Christians can come to Jerusalem and the West Bank for Christmas; all they have to do is get the proper permits, which we will make almost damn near impossible!!!" Official Tel Aviv Souse.

The Christmas Truce Of WWI Paused The Murderous Demands Of The State

As December waxed, the combat ardor of the frontline troops waned. With Christmas approaching, the scattered and infrequent gestures of goodwill across enemy lines increased. About a week before Christmas, German troops near Armentieres slipped a “splendid” chocolate cake across the lines to their British counterparts. Attached to that delectable peace offering was a remarkable invitation:

We propose having a concert tonight as it is our Captain’s birthday, and we cordially invite you to attend – provided you will give us your word of honor as guests that you agree to cease hostilities between 7:30 and 8:30…. When you see us light the candles and footlights at the edge of our trench at 7:30 sharp you can safely put your heads above your trenches, and we shall do the same, and begin the concert.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a terribly under-reported episode of World War I, but one which needs to be examined and cherished, because of the human decency these soldiers shared with one another, even though they were allegedly "sworn enemies".

Pakistani academic Junaid Hafeez sentenced to death for blasphemy

Islamabad, Pakistan - A court in Pakistan has convicted a university lecturer of blasphemy and sentenced him to death in a case rights groups have long cited as emblematic of fair trial concerns in such prosecutions in the country.

Junaid Hafeez, a lecturer at the Bahauddin Zakariya University in the central Pakistani city of Multan, was accused of having insulted Islam's Prophet Muhammad and its holy book, the Quran, verbally and on Facebook in 2013.

India protests rage on as death toll rises to 24

Thousands of people joined fresh rallies against a contentious citizenship law in India on Saturday, with 24 killed so far in nearly two weeks of widespread unrest.

The death toll jumped one day after demonstrations turned violent on Friday in India's most populous state, Uttar Pradesh, where at least 15 people were killed including an eight-year-old boy who was trampled to death.

One protester died Saturday after clashes in Rampur, also in Uttar Pradesh, as police armed with batons used tear gas against a stone-pelting crowd, police told AFP.

Anger has been growing over the law, approved by parliament on December 11, which gives religious minority members from three neighbouring countries an easier path to citizenship -- but not if they are Muslim.

Critics say the law discriminates against Muslims and is part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Hindu-nationalist agenda, a claim his political party denies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That Indian legislators actually passed this bill, is a demonstration of absolute, collective tone-deafness, which boggles the mind.

1. Exposed himself as an agent of Zion. So there can no longer be any support of Trump from anyone who claims to love freedom, liberty, decency, patriotism, Constitution. Trump is the enemy unless you love tyranny.So watch and see who now still sticks with Trump.

I will tell you who:

1. morons and/or republicans

2. Evangelical crazies

3. Zionists

4. Dual citizen traitors.

5. Baptists, Seventh day Adventists, Church of God

The Child that Christmas Forgot: How Would Jesus Fare in the American Police State?

What if, instead of being born into the Roman police state, Jesus had been born at this moment in time? What kind of reception would Jesus and his family be given?

When confronted by those in authority, Jesus did not shy away from speaking truth to power. Indeed, his teachings undermined the political and religious establishment of his day. It cost him his life. He was eventually crucified as a warning to others not to challenge the powers-that-be.

Can you imagine what Jesus’ life would have been like if, instead of being born into the Roman police state, he had been born and raised in the American police state?

Consider the following if you will.
