"Promoting the truth while exposing the errors & evil within and outside the Church"

PLEASE NOTE:  In addition to not allowing  advertisements on this website, unlike some other so-called "conservative news" outlets, when possible, I strive to eliminate spiritually unhealthy news sources that glorify gossip, slander, immodesty, atheism, ridicule, liberalism, scandal, and other forms of immorality.

(New stories are posted below these important featured stories) 

"President Trump on Thursday condemned the school shooting massacre in Florida as a “scene of terrible violence, hatred, and evil,” while vowing to address mental health issues amid a renewed debate in Washington over how to stop these recurring attacks."

"But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself.  And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? 

How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even His life to love us. So, the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love, that is, to give until it hurts her plans, or her free time, to respect the life of her child. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it hurts.  

By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems.  And, by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble. So abortion just leads to more abortion.  Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. This is why THE GREATEST DESTROYER OF LOVE AND PEACE IS ABORTION.

Mother Teresa

Commentary: When you give your approval to murder an unborn human being through an abortion (as those in the Democratic Party do), you are approving of using VIOLENCE to destroy a human life (Bill & Hillary Clinton were present at this prayer meeting and ignored what Mother Teresa said about abortion).  Therefore, they, and the vast majority of Democrats are greatly contributing to the climate of violence we are experiencing in the United States.

"The DOJ made clear that the indictment does not allege that any of the interference changed the outcome of the presidential race."

"It’s time we stop the outlandish partisan attacks, wild and false allegations, and far-fetched theories, which only serve to further the agendas of bad actors, like Russia, and do nothing to protect the principles of our institutions," he said. "We must unite as Americans to protect the integrity of our democracy and our elections.”  
---President Trump

"Attorney Sol Wisenberg and Rep. Ron DeSantis of Florida agree Mueller's multiple indictments Friday come close to vindicating president."

"Without the complementary of the male and female skaters, the event ceases to exist.   Yet much of the world has been blinded to the fact that this very natural truth applies even more to marriage than it does to skating.  

These gay (homosexual) skaters know it innately: They wouldn't have an Olympic event if they didn't have a female partner.  Gays––and the entire world which admires the beauty of these couple’s performances understand that.  And so despite being same-sex attracted, despite the demands of LGBT ideology, they choose not a same-sex partner, but a woman."

"The indictment represents the latest mutation of Russian interference allegations that have dragged on for over a year. As this author previously noted, the definition of Russian interference has shifted from unsubstantiated claims of Russian hacking, to Russian collusion, and finally to Russian social media trolling."

"John Paul II and Benedict XVI could have had a similar deal with China but refused: “Both declined, because they knew it was not a step toward greater freedom for the Catholic Church in China but a step toward greater Catholic subservience to the Chinese Communist regime.”

"The Vatican said Thursday that Pope Francis meets frequently with victims of sexual abuse, seeking to defuse a mounting scandal over his unbridled support for a Chilean bishop accused by victims of witnessing and ignoring their abuse."

"The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced its endorsement of Jeanne Ives for governor of Illinois, challenging incumbent Republican governor Bruce Rauner, who signed into law a bill that mandates taxpayer funding of abortion through the state’s Medicaid program months after stating he would oppose it."

"Tanya Granic Allen says she will repeal the Liberal government’s “radical sex-ed curriculum” and give parents “ultimate responsibility to take care of their kids” if elected leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party and premier of Ontario."

"British prime minister, Theresa May, uses her speech at the Munich security conference to call for continued military, intelligence and counter-terrorism cooperation after Britain leaves the EU."

"A Christian convert from Islam in Cameroon has said that for over a decade now his Muslim family has been trying to get him killed, with even his own wife going before local leaders asking that he be beheaded for his faith."

"In his book, Archbishop Welby proposes that Christianity has a vital part to play in the reimagining of society, and could be the driving force behind change. It remains, he says, foundational to ethics and values in the UK."

"Experts say it’s nearly impossible to track the extent to which these pro-Russian positions are directly shaped by the Kremlin. Indeed, to be most effective, Moscow does not invent issues out of whole cloth, they say. Instead, disinformation attacks seek to inflame existing tensions by putting out viral web stories that would then be republished by local news outlets and on social media to distort political debates about wedge issues like the European Union, immigration, and NATO."

"Chase’s teacher is not looking for a new seating chart or “exceptional citizens.” Chase’s teacher is looking for lonely children. She’s looking for children who are struggling to connect with other children. She’s identifying the little ones who are falling through the cracks of the class’s social life. She is discovering whose gifts are going unnoticed by their peers. And she’s pinning down—right away—who’s being bullied and who is doing the bullying."

"What would my child look like? Was it a boy or a girl? I can picture walking and talking with my child…watching his or her first steps…holding them when they cry and rejoicing with them when they succeed. But these are just dreams in my mind; dreams that often leave me heartbroken."

"On Ash Wednesday we were reminded that we are dust and unto dust we shall return. Each of us is going to die, and we don’t get to say when or how. On account of Jesus, our death will usher in new life if we are faithful.  Keep us faithful, Lord, unto our certain death and let no worldly thing so impress us that we forget that its time is limited."

"As the Wall Street Journal observes in the related editorial today (behind the Journal’s paywall): “The 37-page indictment contains no evidence of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, but it does show a systematic effort to discredit the result of the 2016 election. On the evidence so far, President Trump has been the biggest victim of that effort, and he ought to be furious at Vladimir Putin.”

"Idaho’s experiment is a bold one, and it is sure to be challenged in court if anyone can figure out how to do it. But already it has helped quantify the punishing and unnecessary expense that Obamacare has imposed upon the 9 percent of people who buy insurance on the individual market."

“Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers… in the form of a religious deception which will be one of apostasy.”

"Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness: that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter."  Isaias (Isaiah) 5:20

"Therefore, brethren, stand fast; and hold the TRADITIONS  which you have learned, whether by word, or by our epistle."  2 Thessalonians 2:14

"Know also this, that, in the last days, shall come DANGEROUS times.  Men shall be lovers of themselves, covetous, haughty, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, wicked, without affection, without peace, slanderers, incontinent, unmerciful, without kindness, traitors, stubborn, puffed up, and lovers of pleasures more than of God: Having an APPEARANCE indeed of godliness, but denying the power thereof.  Now these AVOID."  2 Timothy 3:1-5

"Padre Pio told Father Amorth: "Satan has been introduced into the bosom of the Church and he will within a very short time come to rule a false Church."  Amorth says that Padre Pio was "really tormented" by one issue that is "the great apostasy within the Church."

Commentary:  This does not mean that the current pope, (Pope Francis) is the Anti-Christ in disguise.  It appears to be very likely that because Francis has opened the door to a vastly more confused, liberal  Church where all kinds of divisions are taking place, he has set the stage for Satan's rule at some point in the future.   vtb


PERFECT DESCRIPTION - Cameron's 'bromance' with Obama a myth, claims ex-adviser Steve Hilton

"David Cameron’s former director of strategy has said Cameron thought Barack Obama was one of the “most narcissistic, self-absorbed people” he had ever encountered, despite the pair’s once notorious “bromance".... “Obama never  listened to anyone, always thought he was  smarter than every expert in the room, and treated every meeting as an opportunity to lecture everyone else. This led to real-world disasters, like Syria and the rise of Isis.”

"Promoting the truth while exposing the errors & evil within and outside the Church"


“We cannot see any possibility that the coming agreement can result in the Chinese government stopping its persecution of the church and ceasing its violations of religious freedom.”

"Scalise added that mental illness and "gun-free zones" seem to be commonalities in such shootings."

"Put in all sorts of common sense measures if you want. I’m not opposed to it. I reckon they would be a good thing.  But don’t imagine it is going to stop the killing. Don’t imagine that controlling guns will control people. Don’t imagine that the heart of darkness in American society is going to be cured with such a superficial thing as gun control."   Father Dwight Longenecker

"Patients whose illnesses could be cured or arrested and who could thereby live longer lives, could be instead be left to die. It is a particularly blood curdling form of triage. It is morally unacceptable."

"They really hate Christians, especially Catholics. Indeed, that is the most defining characteristic of those employed by Comedy Central. It is not certain whether they screen for bigots, or whether only bigots apply."

"Saying Poles were complicit in Holocaust crimes is as inappropriate as saying that Jews were complicit. Poles and Jews were both victims of the Nazis."


Commentary: To acknowledge publicly you are a homosexual would create scandal and that is not the mark of a truly devout Catholic.  If you are dealing with homosexual tendencies, but not actually having homosexuals relations that would not be sinful.  If, to avoid giving the wrong impression, you made that fact public, that would indicate you are sincere about not creating scandal.  In these areas, the article contains assumptions and does not fully satisfy the reader as to what is actually the truth.  vtb  

Commentary: Internet search engines like Google and Bing must also be held accountable for promoting filth.  vtb

"If you didn’t know that the Best Picture–nominated Call Me By Your Name is an uncritically rapturous celebration of a same-sex relationship between an inexperienced youth played by Timothée Chalamet and an experienced man played by Armie Hammer, you might almost guess it from the opening titles, an arty overture for the film that follows."


"Francis would do well to take a page from John Paul II's book. Francis would also do well to take to heart the Gospel of Matthew, where it reads: “You are the light of the world. A city seated on a mountain cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but upon a candlestick, that it may shine to all that are in the house.”

"Reverend Graham added that although the liberal media attack Trump and "condemn him" as a bad example of a Christian, he is at least "defending the faith and standing strong on that." Graham stressed that he himself is not the "greatest example" of a Christian either, but the point is to believe in Christ and strive to do one's best..."What I love about our president is that our president defends the Christian faith," said Rev. Graham.  

"Our past presidents scolded Christians. This president is defending Christians and he’s very open about the Christian faith."..."I love that about President Trump and, of course at the prayer breakfast just a few days ago he was tremendous that America is a nation of believers," said Graham.  "And we’re strengthened by the power of prayer, he reminded everyone." 

"He also reminded us that faith is central to American life. It is. It is central to our life as a nation. I’m very thankful that Donald Trump takes this stand.".."Many people condemn him that he is not an example of the Christian faith," said Graham.  "Well, he may not be the greatest example – well neither am I. But at least he’s defending the faith and standing strong on that."  When asked about the unrelenting attacks on the president by the liberal media, Hollywood, and academia, Rev. Graham said, "He’s very open. He doesn’t care if he gets criticized. He’s just going to speak what he believes. I really believe that he believes in God."

"The Democrats have forfeited all credibility on this case. They haven’t told the truth from day one. Pete, here’s what even more tragically amusing about the Democrats. They step — they lie so much they step on their own story. They told us before the release of the Nunes Republican memo oh my gosh sources and methods, it’s going to jeopardize national security. Nobody should see this. Cover it up. Sweep it under the rug. 

Then the memo came out oh this is a big nothing burger. This is a total dud. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along. They have not told the truth from day one on this. They have forfeited all their credibility. This is important. They are covering up what I believe to be the biggest scandal in modern political history. That is the being on of the trump team by the Obama Administration with no evidence to do so.”


"In the past few weeks the story of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign has taken a turn that the progressive socialist wing of the Democrat party did not expect. While proving in its length and far reaching investigation, the Special Council has all but proven that the collusion charges started by Hillary Clinton and her sycophants in the mainstream media is nothing more than the wishful thinking based on a baseless lie."


"And you shall hear of wars and rumors of  wars. See that ye be not troubled. For these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet."  Matthew 24:6

"Overnight Iran launched its first direct military operation against Israel, dispatching a drone commanded from the Tiyas Airbase in Syria’s central Homs region.  The Israelis used an Apache helicopter to intercept and down the drone, then sent four jets to destroy the command center (an Israeli military spokesperson confirmed “accurate hits of Iranian UAV control facility." 

One of the Israeli F-16s was abandoned by its pilots over Israel, amid what the Israelis describe as “massive Syrian anti-air fire.”  Syrian anti-aircraft fire reached Israeli territory, triggering extended emergency activities in Israel’s northern communities."


Commentary: On the surface it looks like more deficits, but more jobs & new trade deals with other countries are still in the works that should vastly reduce the deficit.  vtb

"Another strategy that Father Martin apologists use is to bypass his problematic affirmation with homosexuality and say his scheduled topic at a given Catholic venue was to focus on something other than LGBT issues — ignoring the scandal of his overall efforts to normalize homosexuality."

"She is most certainly a feminist, but not the sort you might find leading a protest in the street, throwing rocks, and shouting profanities. No, Marta Rodriguez is a feminist in the heart of the Church, with a heart like Mary."

"Violent attacks by unscrupulous persons, among whom are terrorists masquerading as herdsmen, have led to a near civil war situation in many parts of the country."


"Philadelphia Abp. Charles Chaput also criticized Marx's comments, saying, "On the surface, the idea may sound generous and reasonable. But the imprudence of such public statements is — and should be — the cause of serious concern."  He continued, "[A]ny such 'blessing rite' would cooperate in a morally forbidden act, no matter how sincere the persons seeking the blessing," adding, "Such a rite would undermine the Catholic witness on the nature of marriage and the family. It would confuse and mislead the faithful. And it would wound the unity of our Church because it could not be ignored or met with silence."


"Despite his tremendous expertise and his personal connection to the Church’s current debates, Benedict remains silent in his Roman cloister. No doubt he does so from the conviction that it would do more harm than good if he were to speak. On one hand, one is inclined to second-guess him. At this moment, does not the Church need the wisdom of a bishop and theologian who has been at the heart of the Church since the Second Vatican Council? 

On the other hand, whose conscience is better formed than Joseph Ratzinger’s? If even an erring but earnest conscience is inviolable, how inviolable is a conscience that is not especially likely to err? As much as we might want one of Benedict’s limpid, logical interventions on the questions convulsing the Church, we must respect Benedict’s decision to keep silence."

"Describing a world marked by signs of “the end of time,” including false prophets and cold hearts, Pope Francis on Tuesday urged Catholics to use Lent to counteract this “great tribulation” through prayer, almsgiving and fasting."

"It has become quite predictable. President Trump proposes a logical, reasonable solution to the nation’s immigration problems and the left locks and loads their verbal firepower for extreme, inane rhetoric. Such is the case today as the president proposes a National Vetting Center which will sift through the bevy of immigrants and visitors entering the U.S."

"Lampe recognized that the issue is not about discrimination against same-sex couples.  “The state is not petitioning the court to order defendants to sell a cake. The state asks this court to compel Miller to use her talents to design and create a cake she has not yet conceived with the knowledge that her work will be displayed in celebration of a marital union her religion forbids. For this court to force such compliance would do violence to the essentials of Free Speech guaranteed under the First Amendment,” he wrote.

"Only 13 percent of refugees admitted during the first quarter of FY 2018, or 715 out of 5,323, were Muslim, while 60 percent, or 3,210 out of 5,323, were Christian, according to the State Department’s interactive website.  In contrast, 46 percent of refugees admitted during the first quarter of FY 2017, or 11,851 out of 25,671, were Muslim, while 44 percent, or 11,377 out of 25,671, were Christian."  

"Senate leaders announced Wednesday they have sealed agreement on a two-year budget pact that would shower both the Pentagon and domestic programs with almost $300 billion above existing limits, giving wins to both GOP defense hawks and Democrats seeking billions for infrastructure projects and combating opioid abuse.  The agreement is likely to be added to a stopgap spending bill that passed the House on Tuesday, aimed at averting a government shutdown Thursday at midnight. Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York called the Senate agreement “a genuine breakthrough.”

"In a conversation with Arutz Sheva, Yehezkeli explains that the world already understands ISIS terror and stands up to it, but is now facing a new and quiet jihad, which according to Islam is the last Jihad, the Apocalyptic Jihad where Islam takes over the West not by war, but by quietly penetrating Western societies.  Yehezkeli notes that a ruling of the 1990s by a senior Muslim jurist states: "The occupation of the West will be done without war but quietly, with infiltration and subversion."

"It is difficult to know where to begin and to hold ones rage, righteous rage, righteous anger at a man so vile, so corrupt, so profoundly evil that to think that he is even a priest, let alone an Archbishop, leaves one to almost sink into despair that such a deceitful man could ever be ordained."


"Now that we know what the declassified House memo says about government misconduct, we also know what it means: The Washington swamp — the deep state — is bigger, more vicious and more dangerous to American liberty than even a cynic could have imagined.  Because of the memo and previous revelations, we know that swamp creatures are embedded in the top of the FBI and the Department of Justice. Some used their power to try to tip a presidential campaign based on their personal politics."

Trump added: "Somebody said treasonous. I mean, yeah, I guess why not. Can we call that treason? Why not. They certainly didn't seem to love our country very much."

"They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and if that holds true, Democrats will seriously come to regret their decision to sit on their hands while President Trump touted the positive developments his policies have had on the lives of everyday Americans during his first State of the Union address."

"It described itself as a pastoral council, and it sought to repackage the teaching, life and worship of the Church to suit a world in flux. For this very reason the Council was necessarily going to have a best-before date. That date has been passed. The sad thing is that its milk turned sour very soon after packaging,,.

Thus it makes no sense to be constantly referencing every contemporary initiative to Vatican II, for justification or acceptance-value. It is time to move from a post-conciliar Church to a post-post-conciliar Church; which is to say, it is time to reclaim the Church as She has always been in her essence and her stable form, which has been able to function viably and vitally in every age and circumstance since the time of Christ."

"Leftists who hate America as founded dominate fake news media, Hollywood, public education, and social media. Their mission is to bring America down from her status as the world power. This is why leftists are so repulsed by Trump's desire to make America great again. 

Leftists hate the free market and seek to replace it with socialism; a big brother government controlling every aspect of our lives.  Leftists are liberals. Most people think "liberal" means having a live and let live attitude. The reality is that liberals are super aggressive, using government to force their ungodly agenda items down the throats of the masses."


"Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind, because it is an abomination."
[Leviticus 18:22]

"Christians of any time prior to the mid-20th century would have taken the reverse approach. They would have been shocked that any Christian would even consider attempting to adopt a Hindu spiritual exercise."

"The repeated, though for now misguided, calls for excommunication in these cases, and the repeated, but worth-considering, calls for withholding holy Communion in these cases share this: they spring almost completely from Catholic laity and are almost completely ignored by ecclesiastical leadership."

"Veritatis Splendor states that intrinsically evil acts “do not allow for any legitimate exception,” nor do they “leave room, in any morally acceptable way, for the ‘creativity’ of any contrary determination whatsoever.”  The Church teaches that abortion, contraception, homosexual acts, adultery, and other gravely sinful actions are deemed “intrinsically evil.”  Rendering the term obsolete therefore potentially radically changes the Church’s moral teaching, according to the anonymous moral theologian, “undermining the whole notion of morality.”

"The staggering rise of violent crime from gangs from “multicultural backgrounds” (much like we see in Europe) and the follow-up migrant-protection arguments of fear mongering and backlash from leftwing agitators and talking heads (much like we see in Europe) are destroying Western societies and making the most mundane activities and social recreations increasingly dangerous."

"I cannot of myself do any thing. As I hear, so I judge and my judgment is  just; because I seek not my own will, but the will of HIM that sent me."  [John 5:30]

"I am the true vine; and my FATHER   is the husbandman."  [John 15:1]

"Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my FATHER who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven."  [Matthew 7:21]

"Every one therefore that shall confess me before men, I will also confess him before my Father who is  in heaven."  [Matthew 10:32]

"To start, she chastised those who bring extra people to the hospital saying it’s “a cesspool of funky flu at the ER right now.” Don’t bring your kid’s sports team, don’t bring your "healthy children" and definitely don’t bring your newborn babies, Lockler said.

"I am very close to cleansing My priests of the impurities that defile them. Soon, very soon, I will pour out graces of spiritual healing upon all My priests. I will separate those who will accept the gift of My Divine friendship from those who will harden their hearts against Me."

"Bear in mind that I have tried not to frighten you very much, and so I have not described these things in all their horror as I saw them and as they impressed me. We know that Our Lord always portrayed Hell in symbols because had He described it as it really is, we would not have understood Him. No mortal can comprehend these things. The Lord knows them, and He reveals them to whomever He wills."


"Applause at the State of the Union is not the total measure of a successful address to the nation. But it can indicate the strength and popularity of a president’s message to the nation as well as his ability to reach out to the opposing party."





August 14, 2017.  "In a new interview, Cardinal Raymond Burke has said it is “now necessary” that a declaration be issued on key areas of Church doctrine that are “not clear” in Pope Francis’ teachings.  The Holy Father will then be “obliged to respond” in order to bring clarification to those teachings, he said.  The cardinal told The Wanderer newspaper Aug. 14 that such a formal act of correction has not been invoked “for several centuries” and until now it has never been used “in a doctrinal way.”  But he said it would be “quite simple” and involve presenting on the one hand the “clear teaching of the Church” and on the other “what is actually being taught by the Roman Pontiff.” The teaching in question in particular relates to doctrinal matters published in the Pope's 2016 apostolic exhortation, Amoris laetitia.   “If there is a contradiction, the Roman Pontiff is called to conform his own teaching in obedience to Christ and the Magisterium of the Church,”

Commentary: December 26, 2017.  Still no action.  As much as I respect Cardinal Burke, I believe he has waited too long and too much damage has been done in the way of confusion to the Church.  However, perhaps Burke will be able to issue a statement that will overpower this damage.  vtb

"Although relatively short, these remarks (by Cardinal Maradiaga) speak volumes. Some thoughts: It is revealing, to put it mildly, how often those who criticize the four cardinals—Raymond Burke, Carlo Caffarra, Walter Brandmüller and Joachim Meisner—do so in such a personal, rude manner. This is to be expected of course in the woolly thickets of blogs and personal sites, but this is often the case coming from high-ranking prelates and others who are close to Pope Francis. That said, they may simply be emulating the Holy Father himself, who has a, well, colorful way of addressing those he disagrees with or thinks need to be put in their place. To say, as Cardinal Maradiaga does, that Cardinals Burke, Caffarra, Brandmüller and Meisner, have not actually read the controversial Apostolic Exhortation is the sort of low, embarrassing pot shot best suited for teenagers. That he says with such obvious disdain is bothersome, even scandalous."

Commentary: Notice that these insults and improper conduct were not brought to light or corrected by Francis.  vtb

"The phone call with the Pope: do not be worried.  The Cardinal, who holds the role of coordinator of the so-called C9, the Council of Cardinals which collaborates with the Pope on the reform of the Roman Curia, stated that he has had many attestations of solidarity, even from non-Catholic exponents. He then talked about a phone call with the Pope, who told him: ‘I’m sorry for all the evil they have done against you, but do not you worry’. I said to him, ‘Holiness, I am at peace – at peace because I am with the Lord Jesus who knows everyone’s heart’.”

Commentary: Pope Francis again fails to tell the truth.  The so-called "evil" is being done against Cardinal Burke, and not Cardinal Maradiaga as confirmed in the above related article.  For a Pope to defend those who slander and attack people like Cardinal Burke in such a rude manner is disgraceful.  Another example of why Francis should not be the pope.  vtb


"In this time of an extraordinary crisis of faith inside the Church we should be ever more convinced and be proud of the integrity and beauty of the Catholic faith and of the Catholic liturgy. We should be proud of the holiness and the powerfulness of the little ones in the Church, of the hidden Saints of our days, the hidden victim souls from all levels: religious, celibate persons in the world, mothers and fathers of family, young people and even children."


"According to the White House, the 81 accomplishments are in 12 major categories and include well over 100 other minor achievements."


"Other signers of the letter include leaders in various Christian denominations and Churches, including Orthodox, Anglican, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, and Baptist. Another signer is Imam Faizal Khan, a founder of the Islamic Society of the Washington Area.  “The movement today to enforce the false idea – that a man can be or become a woman or vice versa – is deeply troubling,” the letter continued. “It compels people to either go against reason – that is, to agree with something that is not true – or face ridicule, marginalization, and other forms of retaliation.”

Commentary:  A much needed clear definition of accepting Almighty God's Holy Will concerning how He has created us, and not following the desire of Satan to have us change our sexual identity and bring about an immoral state of existence that could cause us to lose our soul.  vtb


Commentary: Unfortunately, the writer of this article fails to see the truth.  While we can acknowledge that there are some in the Roman Curia that need tp be "reformed," the top one is the so-called "reformer" himself, Pope Francis. Although he says, and does some good things, his main purpose is to liberalize the Church to fit his Jesuit taught image of it.  In this regard, Francis has, as part of his "reform," gotten rid of a number of conservatives and replaced them with liberals.  Although he will occasionally  appoint a conservative to a key position, that is done only to help him from being discovered as the true liberal he really is.  Francis is very crafty and knows exactly what he is doing.  

However, as he continues to "change" the Church under the false banner of "reforming" it, his true character is at times brought to light.  This is very evident in his lack of responses to the incorrect teachings of modern day liberals who ignore tradition and his strong criticisms of conservatives who preach correct Church doctrine and hold fast to tradition.  

Thus, we may conclude that Francis is not always being guided by the Holy Spirit and is a very dangerous man who is destroying Church tradition and doctrine while creating scandal, divisions, and confusion.  vtb

Commentary: Yes Francis, that is true. The Left is always looking for "new ways" to slander people, change history and traditions, weaken or destroy the family, kill and murder the unborn, and tell lies to the general public.  vtb

Commentary: Dear Francis, when you  excuse, tolerate, or sympathize with evil, you become a part of it.  vtb 
Conclusions:  The "answers" are many, but to sum it up, Francis is NOT a good pope and "the smoke of Satan" has indeed entered the Church.  This is due to the indifference and lukewarm spiritual state of the vast majority of Roman Catholics who are being fooled by this deceitful Pontiff.  .  Therefore, Almighty God is sending us great and severe trials and punishments that will test the sincerity of our faith in Him and bring about a renewal in the Church through  the souls open to His grace.  vtb


"In tribulations God enriches his beloved souls with the greatest graces. Behold, St. John in his chains comes to the knowledge of the works of Jesus Christ: ” When John had heard in prison the works of Christ.” Great indeed are the advantages of tribulations. The Lord sends them to us, not because he wishes our misfortune, but because he desires our welfare."

Do you love the Church?  Or are you among the  lukewarm who defend those who create  scandal in the Church? Catholic Messages contains letters and a booklet sent to Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI  that reveal the lukewarm spiritual state of today's Church in  America and the West. 


"Their dour, unsmiling archbishop was turned overnight into the smiling, jolly Pope Francis, the idol of the people with whom he so fully identifies. If you speak to anyone working in the Vatican, they will tell you about the miracle in reverse. When the publicity cameras are off him, Pope Francis turns into a different figure: arrogant, dismissive of people, prodigal of bad language and notorious for furious outbursts of temper which are known to everyone from the cardinals to the chauffeurs."

Commentary: It may not all be true, but there is a significant  amount of information and testimonies that provide ample evidence of the true character of Pope Francis.  vtb


Müller believes that the tensions in the Church are between “an extremist traditionalist front on some websites and an equally exaggerated progressive front."

Commentary: Is being loyal to the pope a greater virtue than being loyal to Christ and His Church?  Is causing confusion and divisions the mark of a good pope or Vicar of Christ?  To lump together "Traditionalists & Progressives" reveals an attempt to water down the truth.  Traditionalists seek a holy pope who is faithful to Church doctrine and tradition.   Progressives or Liberals on average, dislike tradition and like Pope Francis.  They are in agreement with his appointments of liberal bishops, his refusal to condemn practicing  homosexuals, and his refusal to follow Church doctrine regarding giving Holy Communion to the divorced and remarried who are not seeking an annulment.  Liberals also approve of Pope Francis' often critical opinions of conservative cardinals, bishops and politicians.  Sadly, Francis often speaks of "mercy," but does not display mercy for those who disagree with him.  Unfortunately, Cardinal Mueller has chosen not to reveal the real reasons and distort the facts about our misguided, liberal pope who is breaking apart the Church.   vtb

His Excellency, The Most Reverend Robert C. Morlino.  Bishop of Madison, Wis.

"If one is called to be Catholic, one follows what the Church teaches; that is the correct understanding of conscience (as upheld also by Vatican II). And if one really cannot follow what the Church teaches, then one’s conscience requires that one leave the Church. That is the adult decision. One’s conscience does not require that one makes up one’s own personal religion and then pretend that it is Catholic."


"We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel.  We must be prepared to undergo great trials in the not-too-distant future; trials that will require us to be ready to give up even our lives, and a total gift of self to Christ and for Christ. Through your prayers and mine, it is possible to alleviate this tribulation, but it is no longer possible to avert it. . . .How many times has the renewal of the Church been brought about in blood! It will not be different this time."
----Pope John Paul II

"She wrote of the “magnitude of the great, unique love” of God, which could only make one “cry over one’s ingratitude.” She spoke to Jesus about the role of a  confessor in the sacrament; Jesus replied that he is: “My lips, my hands and my heart beating amongst you.”  

“Everything you have and everything you are is my gift of Love,” Jesus told Alicja. He stressed the significance of the  Eucharist,  reminding her that He wants to be invited to  every person’s life. Moreover, He warned against abusive  reception of Holy Communion and its desecration."

"The first proposition – “He was a murderer from the beginning” – is explained by the second: “and he does not stand in the truth”. The murder which the devil performs consists in his not standing in the truth, not dwelling in the truth. It is murder, because he is seeking to extinguish, to kill in the heart of man, truth, the desire for truth.  By inducing man to unbelief, he wants man to close himself to the light of the Divine Revelation, which is the Word incarnate. Therefore, these words of Jesus on Satan – as today the majority of exegetes believe – do not speak of the fall of the angels. They speak of something far more profound, something frightful: Satan constantly refuses the truth, and his action within human society consists in opposition to the truth. Satan is this refusal; he is this opposition."

“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres (other priests); churches and altars will be sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord."

"Fr. Thomas Weinandy, a prolific author and highly accomplished theologian and member of the Vatican’s International Theological Commission sent a letter to Pope Francis on July 31, in which he expressed deep concerns about the present pontificate. The letter was made public on November 1, the feast of All Saints.  While maintaining complete respect and charity for the person of the Pope, Fr. Weinandy criticized Francis for “demeaning” the importance of doctrine, and rebuked the manner in which he seems to censor and even mock the defenders of doctrine as “Pharisaic stone-throwers who embody a merciless rigorism.”  He made it clear to Francis: “Those who devalue the doctrines of the Church separate themselves from Jesus, the author of truth. What they then possess, and can only possess, is an ideology – one that conforms to the world of sin and death.”  In lamenting the errors of the post-synodal apostolic exhortation, Amoris Laetitia, he stressed that the Holy Spirit is given to the Church, and particularly to the Pope, to “dispel error, not to foster it,” and said it is only the light of truth “that sets women and men free from the blindness of sin, a darkness that kills the life of the soul.” (John 8:32) 

Commentary: This priest speaks the truth, but will he be listened to by the many spiritually lukewarm cardinals &  bishops, or other priests?  What Pope Francis has done, and continues to do, (as noted in Father  Weinandy's letter) is gravely sinful and this must also be addressed by the clergy.  vtb

"It came last May, he said, when he was in Rome for a meeting of the International Theological Commission. He said he spent two different sessions in prayer at St. Peter’s Eucharistic Chapel, struggling to decide if he should speak up. In the middle of a sleepless night, he said, he basically gave God an ultimatum.  “If you want me to write something, you have to give me a clear sign,” Weinandy recalls saying. “Tomorrow morning, I’m going to Saint Mary Major’s to pray, and then I am going to Saint John Lateran.  After that, I’m coming back to Saint Peter’s to have lunch with a seminary friend of mine.”  “During that interval, I must meet someone that I know but have not seen in a very long time, and would never expect to see in Rome at this time.  That person cannot be from the United States, Canada or Great Britain.  Moreover, that person has to say to me, ‘Keep up the good writing’.”  Sure enough, Weinandy said, exactly that happened the next day, in a chance meeting with an archbishop he’d known a long time ago but not seen for over twenty years, who congratulated him for a book on the Incarnation and then said the right words, “Keep up the good writing.”  “There was no longer any doubt in my mind that Jesus wanted me to write something,” Weinandy said.  “I also think it significant that it was an Archbishop that Jesus used.  I considered it an apostolic mandate.”

Commentary: Yes Francis, that is true. The Left is always looking for "new ways" to slander people, change history and traditions, weaken or destroy the family, kill and murder the  unborn, and tell lies to the general public.  vtb
Commentary: Dear Francis, when you excuse, tolerate, or sympathize with evil, you become a part of it.  vtb 

"The signatories say that, while they do not accuse the Pope of the sin of heresy, his actions have helped doctrinal errors to spread."

Commentary: "The Pope of Confusion" continues to live up to his reputation.  Francis only "leads" when it suits his own  personal goals, but even then he at times leads us in the wrong direction and sets a bad example by approving of  immoral  relationships.  On the surface he appears to be very spiritual with deep insights into what the Church needs.  However, at the same time he is wrong on a number of key moral issues and is therefore causing great harm to the unity of the Church and appears to be indifferent about it.  When Francis was elected pope, it is debatable whether it was the work of the Holy Spirit  or the work of the devil.  Regardless, at this stage of the papacy of Francis, Satan is pleased, but the Holy Spirit is grieved at the inability of this pope to be a good Shepherd and take proper care of his sheep.  Dangerous times lie ahead for the Church.  vtb

"Because the Pope does not want to answer we do not know. We seem to remember that a Jesuit near him said that the reason was that the questions were ideological. Sorry, but it sounds a bit weak. The task of authority is to clarify their thinking: and thus making it evident..."

Commentary: Pope Francis should be "corrected" by most of cardinals and bishops so a unified front may be in place.  But we know that will never happen because Francis has a certain  fearful presence that prevents them from acting.  Therefore they remain  cowards while the Church splits apart  into a "to each his own" state.  vtb

"Montfort explains that in the days leading to the Antichrist, a powerful group will emerge from among the clergy which, through their devotion to Mary, will be granted special powers to fight Satan..."

"Satan is the Father of Lies and arrogant US Democrats and most members of the media are some of his most devoted children"

For all the the faults certain groups of people see in President Trump, they are nothing in comparison to the APPROVAL of the gruesome murders (through deliberate abortions) of millions of unborn human beings by the vast majority of US Democrats.  It is a scientific fact that when a "being" exists in the womb, it is human, no matter what the stage of development, therefore US Democrats, by their approval, are in a large measure guilty of these great crimes against humanity.

"This grace-filled place has been attracting visitors from all over the world. It’s not unusual for an entire busload of pilgrims to arrive, pray in the shrine, tour the grounds, and overnight in hotels in the neighboring vacation spot called Door County, a Wisconsin peninsula of the Great Lakes. While at the shrine, they’ll learn the history of the apparition and take in presentations from expert docents and Mariological experts. If they’re Catholic, they’ll receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and participate in holy Mass (The shrine is administered by the Fathers of Mercy). According to shrine staff, upwards of 150,000 pilgrims visit each year. No matter how many pilgrims converge at this holy place, the peace and simplicity are never disturbed."


"According to legend, the line represents the blow with which St. Michael sent the devil to hell - In any case, it is surprising how well these sanctuaries are, in fact, aligned. But the details of such alignment are also astonishing: the three most important sites, Mont Saint Michel in France; the Sacra of San Miguel in Val de Susa; and the Sanctuary of Monte Sant’Angelo in the Gargano are all the same distance one from the other. Some say this is a reminder from the Holy Archangel: the faithful are expected to be righteous, walking the straight path.  If all this was not surprising enough, the Sacred Line also is perfectly aligned with the sunset on the day of the Northern Hemisphere’s Summer Solstice..."

"There are many who hate me and my deeds, and who account my words as sorrow and vanity, but instead, with affection and love, embrace the whore monger: the devil. Whatever they do for my sake is done with grumbling and bitterness. They would not even confess my name or serve me, if they did not fear the opinion of other men. They love the world with such fervor that they never tire of working for it night and day, always burning with their love for it. Their service is as pleasing to me as that of someone who gives his enemy money to kill his own son! This is what they do to me. They give me some alms and honor me with their lips in order to gain worldly success and is therefore hindered in them and they are prevented from making any progress in doing good."

"The Philippines could again be a tremendous source of American military enlistment. The country has over 100 million people, most of whom speak English, are often well educated, are very pro-American, and typically practice a  conservative form of Catholicism or Protestantism.  And they just adore President Trump."

"Well, it’s open enrollment season again, that festive time of year when we all realize just how much money we are  throwing away on medical insurance that barely functions. Every year, I almost forget just how much damage Obamacare has done to the country, but every November the federal government makes sure to remind me."

"On no fewer than three separate occasions, then, the Obama administration expressly permitted Americans to hold policies that did not comply with Obamacare’s new regulatory regime—its prohibition on pre-existing condition restrictions, its  essential health benefits requirements, and its myriad other new mandated subsidies. In perpetuating these non-compliant plans, the Obama administration’s actions parallel President Trump’s recent executive order, which among other proposals would expand access to short-term insurance policies."

"Archbishop Forte has in fact revealed a “behind the scenes” [moment] from the  Synod: “If we speak explicitly about communion for the divorced and remarried,” said Archbishop Forte, reporting a joke of Pope Francis, “you do not know what a terrible mess we will make. So we won’t speak plainly, do it in a way that the premises are there, then I will draw out the conclusions.” [emphasis added]... 

Cardinal Meisner was later to lose that trust however, which came to light when he, together with another three cardinals,  issued five dubia concerning Amoris Laetitia. Moreover, as we all know rather well, under  Pope Francis, the influence of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has been  progressively minimized, and the pope himself did not even pass on to Cardinal Gerhard Müller the full final version  of  Amoris Laetitia for the cardinal’s final review  before its publication and papal promulgation. And Cardinal Müller has now been altogether  removed from his former office.  Does anyone have any doubts why we have lost so much trust in the papal promises and in his tendentious maneuvers?"

Commentary:  Deceit should never be employed by a Vicar of Christ to promote a  personal opinion, especially one that is contrary to a Doctrine of the Church, but that is exactly the method Pope Francis used.  vtb 


"When President Trump made his first overseas trip in May, I wondered how he would top it. After all, he started in Saudi Arabia — home of Mecca — made the first direct flight ever from Riyadh to Israel, and then went to the Vatican, attended a NATO meeting, and finally finished with a G8 Summit.  He walked away with a commitment by NATO allies to spend more on their militaries — and the Saudis to give to a women’s fund $10 million, as well as work to defeat the Islamic State.  How do you top that?  Trump just did."

"Most surprising of all was that in one corner of the room, the archaeologists discovered a seat carved of stone with a hole in the center—what [they] believe to be a toilet. This latrine . . . was unquestionably a form of desecration of this shrine room—a practice described in the Hebrew Bible: “Then they  demolished the pillar of Baal, and destroyed the temple of Baal, and made it a latrine to this day” (2 Kings 10:27).

"Josaphat Kuncewicz, contemporary with St. Francis de Sales and St. Vincent de Paul, might have been taken for a Greek monk of the eleventh century, or an ascetic of the Thebaid. A stranger to the intellectual culture of the West, he knew only the liturgical books and sacred texts used in his  own church; as a priest, an archimandrite, a reformer of his order of St. Basil, and lastly as Archbishop, he combated all his life against the consequences of the schism of Photius, and closed the struggle by culling the palm of martyrdom. Yet all this took place in the heart of Europe, in the countries then subject to Catholic Poland, during the reign of the most pious  of its kings. How is this mystery to be explained?"

"Home schooling seems like a radical idea—but only because we are conditioned to think of it that way. Why? Because most of us attended school. But after nine overhauls of our public education system in less than 30 years, according to Pew Research Center data, the U.S. has fallen in world standings for education, to 39th in math and 24th in reading. We are officially behind Estonia. … The schools aren’t getting the job done."

"God formed man to be imperishable; the image of his own nature he made them.  But by the envy of the Devildeath  entered the world, and they who are in his possession  experience it.  But the souls of the just are in the hand of God, and no torment shall touch them.  They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead; and their passing away was thought an affliction and their going forth from us, utter destruction.   But they are in peace."

"Yes, for these grave reasonsone year after rendering  public the dubia, I again turn to the Holy Father and to the whole Church, emphasizing how urgent it is that, in exercising the ministry he has received from the Lord, the  Pope should confirm his brothers in the faith with a clear expression of the teaching regarding both Christian morality and the meaning of the Church’s sacramental practice."

"Amid all the worries of these days, it’s good to remember that there are also signs and figures of hope. The two young  priests writing today – like many others of their generation – are not at all confused or ambiguous about what the Church teaches. And they’re not reticent about expressing it, even in difficult cases such as end-of-life decisions."

"The oil represents the Holy Spirit, as oil was used to anointed spiritual leaders in the Bible, and afterward the Holy Spirit  came upon them (1 Samuel 16:13).  Are our churches alive — anointed, protected — enough?  We think also of sacramental oil: are we using it not only at times when we are ill, but also as a protection in our homes, forming the Sign of the Cross  with it on our foreheads and in rooms in our home that may be susceptible to infiltration by the enemy? Do we not now see how just as Christ had to wage warfare  cast out spirits   — before healing, oil should be used by us both in healing and casting spirits out?  In oil is a hidden protection."

"The annulment process showed itself to be an actual, pastoral gift of real healing and self-discovery."

"The U.S. Army's top enlisted man is close to unveiling the final version of the World War II-era Pinks and Greens  uniform that could be approved for all soldiers next year.  Sergeant Major of the Army Daniel Dailey and Chief of Staff  Gen. Mark Milley began considering the possibility of bringing back the iconic two-tone uniform of the "greatest generation" for soldiers to wear as an everyday office uniform earlier this year."

"From the perspective of a journalist, the world is experiencing a revolution in the Catholic Church. The secular media have been speaking about a monumental change in Catholic teaching on morality, particularly sexual morality already for nearly four years. Already in 2013 countless headlines spoke of the Pope’s admonition to not to speak of “abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods” all the time. The new ‘who am I to judge’ attitude regarding  homosexuality was bolstered by the images of embracing homosexual and transgender couples."

"In the Catholic Church today, we hear little of any crisis in the Church, much less heresy. As Cardinal Robert Sarah writes, “while the bark of the Church furrows the stormy sea of this  decadent world and the waves crash down on the ship . . . a growing number of Church leaders and faithful shout, ‘Tout va tres bien, Madame la Marquise!  Everything is just fine, Milady!”  But everything is not fine."

"On Monday, a California U.S. appeals court allowed President Trump’s most recent iteration of travel restrictions to be  partially initiated, permitting the administration to prevent the entry of people from six terrorism-linkedMuslim-majority  nations in cases where they have no connections to the United States."

"Crime is a major problem in many black neighborhoods. In 2016, there were close to 8,000 blacks murdered, mostly by other blacks. In that year, 233 blacks were killed by police. Which deaths receive the most attention from politicians, civil rights groups and white liberals and bring out marches, demonstrations and political pontification? It's the blacks killed by police. There's little protest against the horrible and dangerous conditions under which many poor and law-abiding black people must live. Political hustlers blame their condition on poverty and racism — ignoring the fact that poverty and racism were much greater yesteryear, when there was not nearly the same amount of chaos. Also ignored is the fact that the dangerous living conditions worsened under a black president's administration."

"He (Satan) makes things that are contrary to God seem good and harmless.  “The devil’s greatest trick is making us think that he doesn’t exist.” These aren’t the words of a theologian, or even those of a saint: they were written by the French poet Charles Baudelaire. Satan’s silent but active presence is like an undetected cancer that, in a devious and unperceived  way, corrupts a body and takes up residence in as many of its organs as possible through a lethal metastasis.  Fr. Paolo Morocutti knows this all too well. He is an exorcist of the  Diocese of Palestrina, one of Rome’s suburbicarian dioceses [six of Rome’s suffragan dioceses, with bishops who are cardinals and a special historical status – translator’s note]. He is also a member of the AIE (International Association of Exorcists, abbreviated from its name in Italian), and the  teacher of various courses for exorcists."

"Marco Tosatti has denounced “a climate of fear and persecution against those who disagree” in the Vatican and the Church. During his over 35 years as a Vatican journalist  Tosatti “never experienced this before.”  He pinpoints that this situation endures because of the “cowardice and servility” of those persecuted who, albeit the would have the task of denouncing it, do not do so and hence become accomplices."


"Monsignor Antonio Livi, an academic and former Opus-Dei priest, has denounced a persecution against him and all those who do not align with the "dictatorship of relativism" which governs the present Church.  Livi was recently disinvited to give a talk in Modena, Italy, by the local Modernist bishop.  According to Livi Pope Francis is “not a heretic," but he has surrounded himself “with very bad collaborators who are clearly heretics.”

"Rob Jones braved the cold weather on Veterans Day to complete his mission: running 31 marathons in 31 days.  After losing his legs to an improvised explosive device in  Afghanistan in 2010, Jones has shown endurance that few can rival.  “I’m pretty sore, but overall I am feeling pretty good,” "

"Company 42%-owned by the Chinese government sold devices that monitor U.S. Army base, Memphis streets, sparking concerns about cyber security."

"I’m very honored to be representing our country, and I will say that, when you speak of honors, one of my great honors is to present the people standing right behind me — great, great warriors and veterans of the Vietnam War.  Our veterans are a national treasure, and I thank them all for their service, sacrifice, and patriotism.  To each of you with me today, you are the heroes who fulfill your duty to our nation. And each of you, under the most difficult conditions, did what you had to do, and you did it well."


"Each night, when the visitors have gone, there comes a silence upon the stone and the wood. It is a strange silence. One that reflects the greatest moment in history, perhaps the most silent as it is that of the Annunciation; for it is claimed that the house at Loreto is no replica, but none other than the house in which the Holy Family dwelt, the Holy House."

"Our culture is undergoing a hostile takeover. American society used to be governed by Judeo-Christian do-unto-others morals. But we have drifted (been pushed, really) into a hedonistic YOLO (You Only Live Once) cultural morass. The upshot of this is a distinct lack of respect for human life in general, as well as a pervasive, insidious obsession with self."

"At this period, however, the partisans of evil seems to be combining together, and to be struggling with united vehemence, led on or assisted by that strongly organized and widespread association called the Freemasons. No longer making any secret of their purposes, they are now boldly rising up against God Himself. They are planning the destruction of holy Church publicly and openly, and this with the set purpose of utterly despoiling the nations of Christendom...'


"Progressives style themselves the ones who regard human progress as a moral task.  They intervene to force society into the direction they see as the only correct one. Magic words are: emancipation, integration and inclusion. They see themselves as the avant garde of global openness and  tolerance. These same progressive comrades have become entangled lately in contradictions that give rise even among their leftist friends to doubts about the progressiveness of their positions. Is it not astonishing when logical secularists like them demand tolerance for an Islam that does not distinguish between religion and state?"

"While most of the bipartisan crowd honored Owens’ sacrifice with a long standing ovation, many members of the Democratic Party refused to applaud or stand — including erstwhile DNC Chair hopeful Keith Ellison, former DNC chair  Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi."

"Remember when Democrats endlessly decried that Hillary Clinton didn’t rig the Democratic National Committee to become the Democratic nominee in the 2016 presidential election?  Former interim party chairwoman Donna Brazile  released an excerpt of her upcoming book...where she admits Clinton’s campaign rigged the DNC to exclude other candidates.  When I was asked to run the Democratic Party...I stumbled onto a shocking truth about the Clinton campaign,” she said.

"While servile fear “may co-exist with filial fear,” — and indeed, St. Thomas argues that “servile fear is from the Holy Ghost” — it is to be remembered that “purely servile fear, with no love of God but only self-love that fears the divine punishments, is at least in theory, inconsistent with the true love of God.”  In practical terms, servile fear is that fear which is primarily motivated by self-love. It seeks to avoid the loss of some good or goods, position, or status, or even the loss of  Heaven out of the love of self — not the love of God."

"Saint Joseph was quoted as telling one of the two seers,  Edson Glauber:

“My dear son, Our Lord God has sent me to tell you about all the graces the faithful will receive from my Most Chaste Heart which Jesus and my blessed spouse wish to be honored. I am Saint Joseph and my name means ‘God will grow,’ because I grew every day in Grace and Divine virtues.  

“Through devotion to my Chaste Heart many souls will be saved from the hands of the devil,” he supposedly said. “God Our Lord has allowed for me to reveal to you the promises of my heart. Just as I am fair and righteous in the sight of God, all who have devotion to my heart will also be chaste, righteous, and holy in His sight.  “I will fill you with these graces and virtues, making you grow every day on the road to holiness."

"The Catholic Church offers a partial indulgence for visiting a cemetery throughout the year, but from November 1 through November 8, the indulgence is offered as a plenary indulgence for a poor soul suffering in purgatory. You can help release a soul from Purgatory into Heaven every day  through the first week of November! Here’s some information about what an indulgence is, and how you can help the poor souls in Purgatory this year."

"The Washington shooting of Steve Scalise and other  Republican lawmakers back in June; the attack on Sen. Rand Paul last week; and now the massacre in Southerland Springs, Texas – all of them appear to have been carried out by persons motivated at least in part by leftist ideology.  The baseball field shooter, James Hodgkinson, was a left-wing activist who hatred President Trump and targeted Republicans.  The attack on Rand Paul was reportedly carried out by a neighbor  who held extremely liberal views and may have attacked Paul because of political differences.  Now there is the Texas  shooter, who has been variously reported to have been a leftist and a radical atheist.  There is certainly proof that Devin Kelley posted strongly worded comments on atheism.  There is proof that he endorsed numerous liberal causes."

Commentary: It is not surprising that those on the Left would approve of violent means to achieve their goals.  We saw it in the so-called "race" riots, but above all, we see it in the  murdering of unborn human beings through deliberate  abortions.  vtb

“Although I am touched and honored to be selected for such an award, the ongoing controversy with NFL players’ disrespect for the national flag forces me to decline to participate in the presentation,” Wells wrote in a letter to the team. “I am unable, in good conscience, to enter an NFL stadium while this discourtesy prevails. Since this award is tainted with the dishonorable actions of the NFL and its players, I cannot accept it.

"Bauman observed that the general trait of individualistic   modern man is to flow through his own life like a touristchanging places, jobs, spouses, values and even sexual orientation and gender. Bauman said the modern tendency is to exclude oneself from traditional networks of support,  while at the same time freeing oneself from the restrictions or requirements those networks impose.  This trend towards such unbridled individualism has created societies in which “everything is unstable and changeable,” Messori noted, and referred to the “rapid change” not only in sexual behavior but also in politics where legislators have given up on long term  governance.  Quoting Bauman, he said it is becoming acceptable that “change” is the “only permanent thing” and that “uncertainty” has become the “only certainty.”

"Because Robert C. Morlino, the Catholic bishop of the  Madison Diocese, adheres to Church teaching and  opposes funeral rites for homosexuals that would cause "scandal and confusion,"  Gays and pro-sodomy advocates  have launched a petition that calls on Pope Francis to  remove Bishop Morlino from his position.  Simply, the LGBT activists do not want a Catholic bishop to actually  believe in and follow Catholic teaching. They are in effect demanding that he celebrate sexual depravity."

Commentary:  Will Francis consent to their ridiculous demands based on their evil intentions?  We will have to wait and see.  vtb 

"Cardinal Gerhard Müller criticized Pope Francis for transferring the responsibility for liturgical translations to the bishops, “In case of doubt, the final authority cannot be with the bishops’ conferences. This would destroy the unity of the Church's faithcommitment and prayer.”  Talking to the Passauer Neue Presse (November 9) Müller said that he has often seen the bishops' translators “watering down biblical or liturgical texts under the pretext of a better comprehensibility”.

"Many saints have claimed to have had supernatural visions of hell. Of course, all private revelations of the saints are non-authoritative, so you shouldn’t look to these for your theology.  Rather, the saints’ visions of hell should remind us of what our faith already teaches: that hell is a real and terrible place, and people can really go there."

"The 1.00 euro postage stamp issued by the Holy See’s Philatelic Office depicts in the foreground Jesus Crucified, and in the background “a golden and timeless view of the city of Wittenberg,” the Vatican’s description read."

"Eight people were killed in Lower Manhattan on Tuesday, October 31 when a man drove a rented Home Depot van down a bicycle path15 people in total were injured. The alleged attacker is a 29-year-old Uzbek national who came to the U.S. in 2010 and currently lives in Tampa, Florida. According to authorities, the suspect exited his vehicle with two firearms in his hands -- they turned out to be paintball and pellet guns. The suspect was shot in the abdomen and taken into custody. New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio has called the incident a terrorist attack but authorities don't believe it's part of a larger plot and New York City's Halloween parade was given the go-ahead to proceed although there will be a heightened police presence throughout the city."

"The Department of Justice charged Vicente Adolfo Solano last week with attempting to use an explosive device at a Miami mall.  Solano had pledged his allegiance to ISIS. This case represents the 99th Islamist terrorism plot or attack against the U.S. homeland since 9/11."

"Cardinal Nichols replied: “The gift ofinfallibility is something that Christ gives to the Church which is expressed through the Pope. Now, that means that we will never, as it were, drift so far from the core revelation of God in Jesus as to get in a total mess. It does not protect us from every error of judgment, particularly in a conflictual situation.”  In 1997, the Vatican’s then doctrinal chief Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger said that it was not quite true that “the Holy Spirit picks out the Pope”; rather, “Probably the only assurance He offers is that the thing cannot be totally ruined.”

"Despite the threat of sanctions from the European Union (EU), the Polish government has decided to not allow any more Muslim migrants into its country to help reduce the risk of radical Islamic terrorism.  “We, Poland, are learning from the mistakes of others … and we will not open our doors to Islamic migrants,” said Ryszard Czarnecki, the Polish European Parliament deputy, in early June after the terrorist attack in Manchester, England on May 22."

The title of one in particular struck me: Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus: A Devout Muslim Encounters Christianity."

"The suspect in Tuesday’s terror attack in New York City that left eight dead and 11 injured reportedly boasted about the incident to police from the hospital Sayfullo Saipov, the alleged attacker, made “no bones” about the attack, according to CBS News, and told police he was pleased with carrying it out."

"I will say at once: for us, Orthodox, this date is not an occasion to rejoice and triumph just as we would not have dreamed of celebrating the anniversary of the "great schism" of 1054. Then the world Christianity was divided into two parts - the eastern and the western.  In 1517another split occurred - now inside the Western Church, when a significant group of believers, led by Martin Luther, separated from her.  Every schism inflicts damage on Christian unity, and every reformation, if it divides believers into warring camps, is contrary to the spirit of Christ's teaching. For many countries in Europe, the consequences of the Reformation were very deplorable: these were numerous human sacrifices, and desecrated shrines, and broken stained-glass windows, and overthrown statues of saints."

"And where the soul shall first go, there she shall remain forever. 'If the tree fall to the south or to the north, in what place soever it shall fall there shall it lie.'

On what side, brethren, will you fall, when death shall cut down the tree of your life?  You will fall on the side to which you incline. If you shall be found inclining to the south that is, in favor with God you shall be forever happy; but if you will fall to the north, you must be forever miserable. There is no middle place: you must be forever happy in Heaven, or overwhelmed with despair in Hell.  We must all die, says St. Bernard or some other author (de Quat. Noviss.), but we know not which of the two eternities shall be our lot after death.”

Flake even called on fellow Republicans in Congress to call out Trump in the future.

"Menninger is part of a small but vocal group of theorists who hold that after Lee Harvey Oswald rattled off multiple shots at the motorcade carrying Kennedy past the Texas School Book Depository, a Secret Service agent riding in a car immediately behind the presidential limousine grabbed his Colt AR-15 high-velocity rifle to return fire.  But when his car stopped suddenly, the theory holds, Agent George Hickey lost his balance and accidentally discharged his weapon, sending a .223-caliber round rocketing into Kennedy's head — the wound that later killed the 35th president.  "It was entirely accidental," Menninger said. "Unfortunately, fate intervened as this agent was attempting to do his job."

Did you ever wonder about the way certain trends imbue and move through specific ethnicities — and nations?  Those trends can be the influence of spirits, and often not-so-nice ones. Call them, this Halloween season, “ghouls” or kobolds or what they are: demons.  Nowhere exhibits this in sharper relief than the Caribbean nation of Haiti.  Here, an estimated fifty percent of the population practices voodoo  (alongside  Christianity).  Call this psychomancy.  As the Catholic author  Roberts Liardon says in Haunted Houses, Ghosts, and Demons, “There are places that have been  dedicated to Satan. I know of an entire country that was dedicated to  Satan — the tiny island nation of Haiti."

"A frail old man lay on his deathbed. In a chair beside his bed, a priest sat with him and wiped away the tears that flowed quietly from the dying man’s eyes. The old man asked the priest to hear his confession.  After receiving the sacrament, he said to the priest, “My son, if the Lord calls me tonight, ask all my brothers to forgive me for the trouble I’ve caused them. Ask them also to pray for my soul.”  From these words, one might think the old man had many regrets and much to repent. Just a few days earlier, however, the whole town had held a huge celebration to honor him. The year was  1968, and the occasion was the fiftieth anniversary of the day he had received the stigmata.  The old man was Padre Pio."

In that regard, the priest added that the devil also seeks to attack the family through ideologies and lifestyles, as well as individualistic thinking and the spread of divorce.  “They think ‘if I don’t like my husband anymore, I would be better off divorcing’ but they forget about the consequences to the children and society,” he said. “This mentality that works against the family pleases the devil - he knows that a man who is alone without any points of reference is manipulable and unstable."

“The Roman Ritual used to explain how one should confront it. The New Ritual, on the other hand, categorically declared that it is absolutely forbidden to perform exorcisms in such cases. Absurd. Evil spells are by far the most frequent causes of possessions and evil procured through the demon: at least  ninety percent of cases. It is as good as telling exorcists they can no longer perform exorcisms.”

The Lord  is not the king of this or that German princedom, changing doctrines according to the whim of the moment. He's the King of the Universe, unchanging and unchangeable. As a counter-feast of the "Reformation SundayProtestants celebrate on the last Sunday in October, Pius XI proposed Our Lord, King."

"It’s been 54 years since Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech, championing—and hoping for—a day when all people would be judged according to their character rather than their race. Sadly, since King’s demise, self-appointed “black leaders” have devoted themselves to the big business of making certain King’s dream never comes true. And in virtually every every case, these demagogic fear mongers have done so in the name of King and as agents of the Democratic Party."


"Nearly 2,900 records related to the  assassination of President John F. Kennedy were released Thursday.  As we read through the National Archive trove, we annotated some of the most fascinating ones we've come across."

"According to The National Association for Amateur Radio (ARRL), elements of the US Department of Defense (DOD) will simulate a  “communications interoperability” training exercise across the United States on November 04-06. The announcement released on October 24 has not been widely distributed to the media, because the drill is simulating a total grid collapse and could spark public fear."

"When Pope John Paul II kissed the Quran  in May 1999 Father Samir said that this "was a shock for many Christians in the Middle East. They thought it meant that the Quran is divine, which is of course not what he meant at all".

"While many watchers of the economy are troubled by the many credit bubbles we have going on right now, the U.S. economy seems to be picking up its pace of growth under the Trump administration. And we’ve only just begun."

"In my previous article, I originally defined atheism as “the rejection of the possibility that ‘God’ exists” because that is how I’ve understood the word from the time I spent studying theodicy (God and the problem of evil). But many “atheist” commentators  disagreed with this definition because their self-designation was based on belief statements that didn’t align with my knowledge statement.  This article explains the differences between the viewpoints and the logic behind them."

"When I was in the seminary in the early  1960's, we were indoctrinated in the notion that the harsh discipline of the Church over the centuries would be a thing of the past following Vatican II. Supposedly, none of this harshness had ever really worked to safeguard the teaching of the Church, so a new softer approach was needed.  A half-century later, the results are in – and it’s indisputable that the softer approach didn’t work. In addition to the exodus of priests, nuns, and religious, there’s been a massive loss of knowledge among ordinary lay people about what the Church teaches. And no wonder, since there’s been little effort to make Church teachings clear in the flight from the bad old days of “harsh discipline.”


"Almost since the election of Donald Trump as President, the Mainstream Media (MSM)  has subjected this country to an almost non-stop deluge of claims that the Trump campaign, if not Trump himself, somehow  colluded with Vladimir Putin to influence the election on his behalf. In the past week we have learned just what a total fraud this was and who was responsible for it. However, it seems to the author that in defending Donald Trump from what we now know were false, made up claims, that a certain question should have been raised right from the start. If Mr. Putin had wanted to influence the 2016 American presidential election, which of the two candidates would it have been to his best interest to attempt to help?"

"According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 52,898 people in the U.S. died from drug overdose in 2015.  In comparison, the Gun Violence Archive estimates that 13,502 Americans died from gunfire other than suicides, and the Insurance Institute For Highway Safety estimates another 35,092 Americans died from motor vehicle accidents in 2015.  These figures add up to 48,594 total deaths. This means 4,304 more Americans died in 2015 from drug overdose than from gun homicides and motor vehicle accidents combined."

"The U.S. House of Representatives kick-started President Trump’s ambitious $1.5 trillion tax cut plan yesterday as it approved the proposed budgetary blueprint for the federal fiscal year that began almost four weeks ago."

"Thousands of previously classified files relating to the assassination of the US President were released on Thursday shedding new details on the case, although Donald Trump bowed to pressure from the CIA and FBI by blocking the release of hundreds of more sensitive records."

"Washing fruits and vegetables is not enough to avoid ingesting pesticides. Americans and people all over the world are eating pesticide residue every day, as has been shown by the presence of pesticides in blood and urine samples taken from broad populations.  The health effects could include a greater risk of cancer, reproductive problems, and impaired mental development in children."

"The Reformation was not a reform but a revolution, according to Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller, the former Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, ousted by Pope Francis in July. Writing for La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana Müller explains that the Reformation totally altered the foundations of the Catholic Faith."


"Many people become obsessed with pornography, sex, or sexual perversion," writes Roberts Liardon in Haunted Houses, Ghosts, and Demons. "Some become obsessed with the occult or New Age teachings. Young people may become obsessed with certain types of music. It's possible to be obsessed with money. Whatever you can think of, it's possible for someone to be obsessed with it."  Very frequently, it's an obsession to do with other people -- relationships, slights. And while on the surface obsession seems simply a niggling psychological glitch, it can draw darkness and this is where spirits like to reside: in the darkFear can energize the negative. What we obsess about we sometimes get.  Demonic spirits can enter this way and take up residence in a home, a neighborhood, over a community, and even over a nation. They also can hold sway over religious groups and organizations. All it takes is: obsession."

"Every nation has a right to distinguish between refugees  and economic migrants who don’t share a nation’s culture or religionCardinal Robert Sarah said on Sunday in WarsawPoland. The cardinal criticized that “some people want to  impose” the logic of migrant redistribution."  This is the case of the EU/Germany versus Poland.  One of those people calling for uncontrolled mass immigration is Pope Francis.

Commentary: The Holy Father does not allow uncontrolled immigration into Vatican property, therefore he should not be promoting it in other areas of the world.  vtb

“I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!” Trump wrote on Twitter, referencing one of the Green Berets killed earlier this month in an ambush in Niger."

Commentary: There appears to be more to it than meets the eye. Although you cannot help but feel sorry for Mrs. Johnson, what part did her race play in her remarks?  She is African American, and 88% of her race voted for Hillary in the presidential election.  Therefore she may have had something against Trump to begin with, and simply confirmed her dislike of Trump.  Until we are made aware of some of her 
background and her intentions or motives, unfortunately we cannot make a fair judgement.  It is difficult to believe Trump would say anything to make light of her sorrow, it does not make sense because other widows have spoken highly of his response, compassion, and phone call.  vtb

"Have you noticed? In recent public comments, the lawmakers investigating the Trump-Russia affair, along with some of the commentators who dissect its every development, seem to be focusing more on the facts of Russia's attempts to interfere  with the 2016 election and less on allegations that Donald Trump or his associates colluded with those efforts."

Commentary: The reason is simple. There never was any "Trump-Russia affair."  It was dreamed up by do-nothing Democrats to cover up their inability to come up with any programs to improve the living standards of Americans.  Now they have switched tactics and are attacking Trump from  another angle as concerns Russia.  However, this too will no doubt end with no real proof, only more "allegations."   vtb

Pope Francis issued on October 22 an open letter to Cardinal Robert Sarah in which he corrects Sarah’s recent statement that his congregation is still in charge of liturgical translations.  Francis insists that the document Magnum Principium indeed hands responsibility for liturgical translations over to the local bishops' conferences. The former practice is no longer supported. Francis obliges Sarah to send a public correction to the webpages that reported about his statement, and to all bishops’ conferences."

Commentary: More confusion caused by the "Pope of Confusion."  The translation should only be made by Cardinal Sarah's Congregation to avoid even more confusion.  vtb

"Rosica (Canadian Father Thomas Rosica) condemned on critics of the controversial book Building a Bridge by the gay-ideologist, Father James Martin. Rosica refers to “some bishops’ messages” but Chaput (Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput) was the only bishop who publicly criticized Martin's book. Rosica belongs to the pro-gay wing in the liberal church."

Commentary: Pope Francis claims he wants more power given to the bishops, but when a conservative bishop speaks out against one of Francis's questionable opinions, he quickly corrects him or has someone in the Vatican "correct" him.  vtb

Miracle of the Rosary” is truly miraculous in its own way, in the fact that it was published at all. Doubly so that it was recorded by Elvis – the only song about the Rosary to ever be recorded by a major artist and released on a major label. It is also a bit of a miracle Elvis remembered it for over a decade, after hearing it only once. And it is miraculous and mysterious that two Pentecostal boys felt called to record a song about one of the most sacred Catholic devotions and sacramentals."

Commentary: It most likely was not as "miraculous" as the writer claims.  Elvis was extremely popular at that time and any record company would have gladly released it.  But if analysed from the fact that they were "Pentecostal boys," then is it amazing.   However, it is also a fact that the writer of this song was a convert to Catholicism.   vtb

Commentary: Wallace is simply defending his "comrades" in the news establishment.  He is an "old school" news reporter who apparently sees no harm in the lies and distortions the liberal press presents to the public all across the United States.  Unfortunately, he is coming across as an "unfair and unbalanced" reporter because he fails to see how the press is "bullying" President Trump and pilling on when they should be recognizing the good things Trump has accomplished along with what they view as "inappropriate."  vtb

"When I took this job and talked to President Trump about how to do it, my first recommendation was he not do it, because it's not the phone call that parents, family members are looking forward to. It's nice to do, in my opinion, in any event.  He asked me about previous presidents, and I said I can tell you that President Obama, who was my commander in chief when I was on active duty, did not call my family."

Commentary: I remember it was revealed that President George W. Bush privately attended the funerals of our brave, fallen soldiers when he was available.  However, when Obama took office, on his very first visit to a funeral, he took the press along with him.  Such is the difference between compassion and hypocrisy.  Although in other areas Mr. Bush has acted more like a Democrat than a Republican  and remained passive when he should have spoken out.   vtb

"Trump called “really something," has any number of key advisers who are practicing Catholics (there is even Bible study in the West Wing; Muslim prayer mats have been  eliminated). And most to the point, he has taken up arms, in recent days, in a matter that was of urgent concern to Christians religious rights.  And so a war, a spiritual war, led by an unlikely leader, rages in D.C. and across North America."


"The Liberal government of the Province of Ontario is set to enact legislation that would see a non-violent protester against abortion  jailed for six months. Meanwhile, the City of Ottawa has banned any pro-life flag to fly on City property. This is called fascism."

"Since Congress can't get its act together on HealthCare, I will be using the power of the pen to give great HealthCare to many people - FAST," President Donald Trump tweeted early Tuesday morning.  Acting alone, the president can change or implement various Obamacare regulations, but only  Congress can repeal the law or replace it."

Commentary: Good work by President Trump.  Lazy, selfish Republicans who care more about their own ideas than they do about our country need to be taught a lesson and re-learn the definition of patriotism.   vtb

"White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders later said that Trump's “IQ tests” comment to Forbes was “a joke and nothing more than that.”  “The president certainly never implied that the secretary of state was not incredibly intelligent,” Sanders said in Tuesday afternoon's news briefing. She added that Trump has "100 percent confidence” in  Tillerson, characterized their lunch as “a great visit” and admonished reporters for taking the president's comment so seriously. “Maybe you guys should get a sense of humor  and try it sometime,” Sanders said."

Commentary: If Tillerson actually said what was reported, it was a very stupid, undignified remark to make about any President, especially the one you are accountable to.  vtb

Commentary: When one considers the source and the life-style of this suggestion, it is clear that it is not from a person who has wisdom.  vtb

Commentary: This is not the first time a man of the cloth has criticized the Prophet Jonah.  Francis, or anyone else should never place himself above a Prophet for it is an extremely difficult life.  Almighty God chose Jonah and there will come a day when Francis will have to answer to Him for questioning His Holy Will.  vtb

"For the salvation of his own soul and our own, to avert the legitimate wrath of God on all of us, to repair the offense inflicted against the honor of Our Lord, Pope Francis should  publicly recant his imprudent utterances as soon as possible and repeat and confirm the solemn condemnation of  Lutheranism in all its aspects."

"In a 2012 article for The Huffington Post, Cheng wrote: 'Same-sex marriages are sacramental because they are a reflection of the larger grace-filled relationship between God and humanity.'  Yet Martin continues to paint himself as the 'victim' of Catholics objecting to the proselytizing of the Holy Father's catastrophic and endless promotion of blasphemy and apostasy.  And the gutless ordained man who gushes over the 'theology' of a blasphemer, and appoints him to say the things he doesn't have the courage to say is the sneakiest of snakes."

Commentary: Without question!  vtb

"Our Lady (said) that we are called to practice (these things) during this “final battle” against Satan. These are  devotion to: Her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heartthe Holy Rosary,the Brown Scapular.  However it is of the greatest importance to note that the final apparition of Fatima also directs us towards the intercession of St Joseph, whom Our Lord intimately associated with Himself in his blessing of the world."


"In 1517, Martin Luther, a Catholic priest, posted his 95 Theses on the door of a church in Wittenberg, Germany. We are marking the 500th anniversary of the great theological revolt that ensued, known as the Protestant Reformation...  Pope Pius V codified the Tridentine Mass, and authorized a revised breviary and a new Roman Catechism and Missal.  He promoted the Council’s teachings on the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, and doctrinal statements on the sacraments of Holy Orders and Matrimony."

Commentary: The holiness of St. Pious V far exceeds that of Pope Francis, whose pride prevents him from seeing the confusion and damage he is doing to the Church.  vtb

"There are so many other concepts in the book that likewise challenge us to reflect on Christendom with different criteria.  Dr. Jones broaches many disciplines and thus does not have time to elaborate his concepts to their fullest. His theological considerations can thus be sketchy and underdeveloped. At times, one wonders if his notions of sovereignty, Church and State are a bit too unstructured."

Commentary: PP should be "ashamed" and "disgraced" for continuing to eliminate the unborn children of minorities in Milwaukee and elsewhere..  But the immoral people who  control it, confirm again and again that they have no conscience about their participation in the murders taking place in their "slaughter houses."  vtb

Commentary: Notre Dame University lost its "Catholic identity" years ago and should not be allowed to use it today.  The bishop of their diocese should take action, and not merely talk.  vtb

"St. Thomas Aquinas,  drawing from the rich tradition of the Church’s history, specifically from St. Paul’s account of rebuking  St. Peter in Galatians 2 as commented upon by St. Augustine, shows quite clearly that not only is it permissible  for a subordinate to correct fraternally his prelate, but that it is also necessary for him to do so publicly in certain circumstances."

"Catholics across the globe, from those in the pew to some of our own bishops, appear to have bought into the ideology of sexual orientation, a morally bankrupt rewriting of sexual reality that utterly revitalizes the truth about God’s plan for us."

Commentary: The "Voice of the heart" and a humble spirit  of obedience to Church doctrine must be the moral intentions of those in this situation.  vtb

"Nothing precedes divine worship. With these words, St. Benedict, in his Rule (43.3), established the absolute priority  of divine worship over any other task of monastic life.”

"Thus, I repeat again my plea to Pope Francis to answer the question put to him, and to answer unambiguously, with a simple Yes or No. If he answers that one of his affirmations has the logical consequence of denying intrinsically wrong acts and runs counter to the constant teaching of the Church, I implore him, in the name of God, Who Is THE TRUTH, to retract any affirmation that is counter to the truth and Church Teaching."

"The current Party philosophy is you can be a pro-life  Democrat, but you cannot vote that way. This type of abortion  litmus test is no better than telling pro-lifers they do not belong at all."

"There is a dire need to hold government officials -- and the preachers and administrators of these mosques -- accountable, and to demand that they take action against  extremists who target these breeding grounds, or face  criminal prosecution. The policy of avoiding the problem by keeping one's eyes shut only enlarges it and sacrifices freedom on the altar of terror."

"In researching the New Age that does not come from God, I practiced magnetism, telepathy, pendulum, all kinds of magic, hypnosis, the effects of New Age, reading auras, all forms of healing through energies, crystals, music and colors, meditations on New Age music, Reiki -- against which the bishops of the United States warn us," she explains.  "And then, I felt in my body that Satan had placed his energy in me and with his power and I began to tremble."

Commentary: Yes, online propaganda contributes to it, but it is the members of the Church who are doing the greatest damage.  Lukewarm "Catholics" who do not truly practice their Faith are by far the most guilty.  They, along with many spiritually weak bishops and priests have brought the Church to a very low level of spirituality. Sadly, until the Church is renewed, it will continue to be torn apart. vtb

(Plus quotes from the article): "Officers are no more likely to be killed by black offenders than white offenders."  However, this fact is buried in the same article: 

"The black population in America ranged from 11.6 percent to 13 percent between 1980 to 2013. Compared to that percentage in the population, the percentage of black offenders who killed police officers appears to be disproportionately high."   It was obviously incorrect to say "appears."   The writer should have said: IS DISPROPORTIONATELY HIGH, confirming that Backs as a percentage of the population kill far more police officers than Whites.  vtb

"Burke said it is “not legitimate to attend Mass or to receive the sacraments" in a SSPX church.  Commenting on Pope Francis' decision to give to the SSPX faculties to celebrate marriages and to hear confessions, Burke states, “There is no canonical explanation for it, and it is simply an anomaly.”

"President Donald Trump discusses the short-term (relief) and long-term (recovery) efforts for Puerto Rico.    As everyone is aware, even before the storm the island territory was under financial collapse as a result of Democrat mismanagement and generational political agendas’ creating a culture of dependency.  Hurricane Maria has exacerbated Puerto Rico’s problems and is showcasing a governmental structure incapable of governing during crisis.  The media hypes the suffering, yet omits the Island’s inept systems of governance and the culture of dependency.  The only way the U.S. federal government can assist effectively is by taking over almost every aspect of state and local government."

Amid avalanche, real questions about the papacy risk being obscured

Commentary: How this happened is very clear.  Former President Obama and his allies in the press are totally responsible.  The White House Press Corps should have been questioning Obama as to why he was allowing North Korea to become a nuclear power.  Instead they consistently fed Obama "softball" questions and let North Korea become a deadly, dangerous enemy of the United State.  Television news, many newspapers, Hollywood hypocrites, and late night T.V. personalities also aided Obama.  What a bunch of cowardly, disgraceful,  unpatriotic people they are!

Commentary: Rap music is by far the worst type of music existing today in Western countries.  The melody for most of the so-called songs sounds alike, only the words are changed. They are supposed to be "poetic" songs, but often comes across as immature and vulgar.  vtb


Father Nichols suggests to change Canon Law in order to have "a procedure for calling to order a pope who teaches error". And, "[The Pope] may be the supreme appeal judge of Christendom…but that does not make him immune to perpetrating doctrinal howlers.”

"I kept hearing Jesus repeat my sins to me – pornography,  bad language, dirty jokes, greed, envy, lust, drinking, and gluttony.  And there was that abortion I had my girlfriend get back in 1988.  Jesus told me that He had sent me unlimited grace every day of my life, but that I had always rejected it in favor of sin.  And since my lifestyle rejected His living water, that allowed Satan to take over my life, and eventually my death.   I told Jesus in my mind that I really didn’t know what He expected of me, but He said that that was no excuse, since He had written it all down for me in the Bible, had given me the sacraments in His church to strengthen me, and had sent His Mom and Her saints and angels down to earth many times to help me.  He said that I preferred to play computer games, read the newspaper, and watch football over doing the will of God.  He told me that since I truly preferred the temporary things of the earth, rather than everlasting heavenly things, that I got my wish to not go to heaven upon death.  And the really sad thing is that He told me that all I had to do was to make one sincere confession to be forgiven for everything."

Commentary: The Confederate armies fought with honor to defend their beliefs, as did the Union armies.  We may not agree with all of the beliefs of either side, but truth is not always easy to discern, especially when our emotions are raised to the point of clouding our vision of what constitutes a just society where all men and women are thought of as equal, from conception to the passing from this world unto eternity.  vtb

"Statues can remind us of where we once stood. More important than any statue, however, is where we now stand."

"Missionaries in the future will, more and more, see that their apostate among the Muslims will be successful in the measure that they preach Our Lady of Fatima. Mary is the advent of Christ, bringing Christ to the people before Christ Himself is born. In an apologetic endeavor, it is always best to start with that which people already accept. Because the Muslims have a devotion to Mary, our missionaries should be satisfied merely to expand and to develop that devotion, with the full realization that Our Blessed Lady will carry the Muslims the rest of the way to her divine Son. She is forever a traitor, in the sense that she will not accept any devotion for herself, but will always bring anyone who is devoted to her to her divine Son. As those who lose devotion to her lose belief in the divinity of Christ, so those who intensify devotion to her gradually acquire that belief."

"Cardinal Burke said that since the publication of Amoris Laetitia, there is evident confusion among the faithful, with some Catholics “practically in desperation” over the lack of clear teaching. Consequently, he said, “it is now necessary simply to state what the Church teaches about marriage, the family, acts that are intrinsically evil, and so forth.”

"Comment by SCL: Kim Clement, a highly respected minister with a prophetic ministry and who died recently, appears to have given a prophecy in 2007 and later, about Donald Trump becoming President for two terms. Everything about what Clement is quoted as saying agrees with what I have felt during this same time-frame about what God is about to do – pouring out spiritual, political, and financial blessings upon America not just for America, but for the whole world.  I believe we are entering into the final days (”The Final Countdown”) in which we will see God’s merciful and loving fulfillment of Luke 14:23 – the final, compelling, in-gathering of souls around the world lasting for the next several decades – before Jesus comes for His church."

"Raymond: And that sense of sacrifice and worship that you’ve talked about so eloquently, how do you see that being restored concretely? Will we see a return to the ad orientem posture, facing the East, the priest facing away from the people during the Canon, a return to the Latin, more Latin in the Mass?  Cardinal: Versus orientem, I would say could be a help because it is really a tradition from the Apostolic time..."

"Catholic convert and former neo-Nazi Joseph Pearce considers the lessons we need to learn in the wake of the events of the Aug. 11-12 tragedy."

"In the last times according to the Bible and Catholic Teaching, there will come an apostasy worse than any time in history.  Rebellion will be seen as a right and a personal interpretation.  People will fall away for less than 30 pieces of silver, sometimes simply for a handshake and a smile."

'We accommodate. We compromise. We avoid conflict — even when conflict is the only proper course,' Archbishop Tartaglia wrote

“The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”  "It might not seem very “modern” to believe in demons, but that doesn’t change the facts! The Catholic Church very much still teaches about the reality of the demonic in our world today; if fact, the Holy Father Pope Francis has especially emphasized this fact. This is important, because it’s hard to fight against things you don’t acknowledge even exist."

"He touched his tongue, …. and the string of his tongue was loosed.” MARK vii. 33, 35.  In this day’s gospel St. Mark relates the miracle which our Savior wrought in healing the man that was dumb by barely touching his tongue. “He touched his tongue and the string of his tongue was loosed.” From the last words we may infer that the man was not entirely dumb, but that his tongue was not free, or that his articulation was not distinct."


"After learning on Sen. John McCain's cancer diagnosis, Sen. John Hoeven has revealed that a group of senators came together to pray for Sen. McCain."

Commentary: Nice gesture, but just how powerful are the prayers of Democrats who believe you have the "right to kill" an unborn human being through an abortion?  vtb

Commentary: Trumps' healthcare plan would allow even more choices based on your religious beliefs than the failed ObamaCare plan.  If only that small group of fake Republicans would put aside their pride for the sake of our country.  vtb

Commentary: Sometimes your greatest enemies are those within your ranks.  vtb

"The Holy Spirit, which is the essence of truth, could not be teaching people conflicting doctrines regarding the same Bible verses.  Catholics would say that the Holy Spirit certainly does make many spiritual truths clear to us individually, but that the gift of never interpreting Scripture incorrectly is only handed down through the Church led by Peter’s successors (the popes).  The articles below get to the heart of the issue of authority..."

Commentary: The correct interpretation of the Holy Scriptures depends upon your degree of faith and the gift of wisdom.  Therefore, many have been deceived and falsely believed they knew and understood God's Will and in the process started their own brand of "religion."  vtb

"The apparitions of Mary of the Rosary of San Nicolás were recently approved as having a “supernatural character” and being worthy of belief by Bishop Héctor Sabatino Cardelli of San Nicolás de los Arroyos in Argentina."

Commentary: I believe exactly how Our Mother Mary looks depends upon the beauty of your soul.  The deeper the love, the deeper you will see the beauty of Mary.  This is the reason she has a different appearance to various souls who have seen her in a vision.  vtb

"The Italian philosopher and politician exercises sharp criticism of the present pontificate. He accuses the Pope of not preaching the gospel, but of making politics."

Commentary: The nonspiritual conduct of Pope Francis should be examined by Cardinals, bishops, priests, and the laity.  However, more out of fear than love, most within the Church choose to remain silent.  vtb

"Rosica condemned on critics of the controversial book Building a Bridge by the gay-ideologist, Father James Martin. Rosica refers to “some bishops’ messages” but Chaput was the only bishop who publicly criticized Martin's book. Rosica belongs to the pro-gay wing in the liberal church."

Commentary: Another example of a cleric who under the influence of our misguided pope, chooses to attack a conservative bishop, while liberal bishops improper conduct goes unnoticed by Vatican officials.  vtb

"The media loves Pope Francis mainly because he is not as ‘rigid‘ as Pope Benedict XVI.  Francis appointing pro-abortion/euthanasia advocates to the Pontifical Academy for Life was the last straw for me. Not Catholic”, Deacon Nick explained, before adding rather mournfully: “I hoped for the best, but my worst fears for the Church are being realized. He is destroying the Catholic nature of the Church.”

Commentary: It has become far more important to reveal the damage Pope Francis is doing to the Church, than the "good" he is doing.  vtb

Commentary: Another truly faithful bishop who abides by God's Word and Church doctrine, rather than human opinions.  vtb

Commentary: The Church must never become filled with contradictions.  But that is exactly the direction it is heading.  vtb

"Jesus told us what brings forth Church crises when He said to the crowds and His disciples (Matthew 23):  “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach."

"Pastor Mark, used to suffer from certain health problems before he became a Christian. His doctor told him that he had to be on medication for life. He also had a huge financial debt. But when he caught hold of the teaching that he is God’s beloved, he believed it totally. He also believed that nothing could be greater than God’s love for him."

"The martyr does not survive. That is the point. In this world, he is dead, for good. His witness may or may not live on among us. He dies unwilling to cross the line that separates good and evil. Those who do cross this line still die, just at some other time. This is why, without final judgment, the world is incomplete. The alternative to martyrdom is living on and on in this world without dying, without hope. To repeat, “Evolution has no martyrs.”

Commentary: The meaning of a word can change over time.  This has proven true with a number of words, including the word "gay."  Therefore, it has become true, based on a great amount of evidence, that the word "liberal" has come to mean "liar."  Such is the confused, immoral state of today's political and social scenes.  vtb

"If there’s one thing made clear by recent events, it’s that Pope Francis and his team does not believe the future of Catholicism will stem from the United States...The Argentinian looks instead to the East, toward Russia and China."

Commentary: A gesture of peaceful unity, a welcomed gesture by almost all countries throughout the world. But is it more political than spiritual?  vtb

"Immigrants in Germany have learned that people who committed serious crimes in their countries of origin can’t be deported if they would be executed or tortured for their crimes back home. Sending them back would violate their human rights, you know.  “Really? Are the kuffar actually that stupid?? Hmm — it seems they are. OK, so I raped and murdered people back in Sandistan — you can’t send me back!”

"President Donald J. Trump hosted companies from across the country at the White House for the Made in America Product Showcase. In order to celebrate and highlight each state’s effort and commitment to American-made goods, businesses from each of the 50 states displayed their products made and produced in the United States."

"I will, therefore speak Today on the vanity of the world, and will show how great is the illusion of the lovers of the world, who lead an unhappy life on this earth, and expose themselves to the imminent danger of a still more unhappy life in eternity."

Commentary: Most voters are aware that to-date every effort has been made by Republicans to pass a health care bill.  They should also be aware that only a handful of Republican Senators are responsible for the bill not passing.  But this political "game" is not over till its actually over, and Republicans still have good options on the table.  vtb

Commentary: It is worth repeating that Liberals are in reality liars.  They are also vengeful and arrogant.  They prove this over and over again and never learn from their mistakes.  vtb

The Catechism makes the following points:

*   Homosexuality refers to men and women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction towards the same sex.
*   Based upon Sacred Scripture, homosexual acts are acts of grave depravity.
*   Homosexuality has taken various historical and cultural forms and its cause remains largely unexplained.
*   Homosexual people must be treated with respect, compassion and sensitivity.
*   All unjust discrimination toward them should be avoided.
*   The homosexual inclination is "objectively disordered."

"I have only been a priest for seven years. About halfway through that period, I switched from the Novus Ordo to the Traditional Latin Mass and sacraments. It was also during this time that I stopped saying a line that I was famous for in seminary: “We do not have a crisis of sacraments. We have a crisis of catechesis.” I used to say this because I knew how many people received Holy Communion in this country without knowing Who they were receiving."

"Charlie Gard's parents have renewed a legal fight to take their terminally ill baby son to the United States for treatment, as a High Court judge said a new decision could be made if there was "new and powerful" evidence.  Chris Gard and Connie Yates, who are in their 30s and come from Bedfont, west London, want 11-month-old Charlie, who suffers from a rare genetic condition and has brain damage, to undergo nucleoside therapy in America."

"House Republicans are blocking every congressional effort to force women to join men in signing up when they turn 18.  “You're not talking about whether or not a lady can serve, you are talking about whether or not a mother has to go to war during a time of a draft...."

"The Joint Program Office didn't respond to requests for comment, but the Bloomberg report speculates that the cost increases could be due to a proposal for 13 more B variant F-35s for the Marine Corps that will increase the total procurement plan to 2,456 from the 2,443 estimated currently or the current production target of 1,763 Air Force A models."

"A new book by historian Eamon Duffy rightly insists that the historical era once called the “Reformation” should not be defined solely in terms of Protestantism. The Catholic Church experienced reformation too, and the reform began long before Luther."

“Pray for priests, so that each and every one of them will repeatedly say yes to the call he has received, remain constant in preaching the Gospel message, and be faithful forever as the companion of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
—Pope St. John Paul II

Commentary: The Republican Party also has its share (although vastly smaller) of egotists and those guilty of treason against our country.  vtb

Pope Pius XII once wrote, “It is often said almost with passive resignation that fashions reflect the customs of a people. But it would be more exact and much more useful to say that they express the decision and moral direction that a nation intends to take: either to be shipwrecked in licentiousness or maintain itself at the level to which it has been raised by religion and civilization.”

Commentary: Destroying the morale of our soldiers is not the way to build a strong military.  vtb

"The cardinal said he did not see the need for the greeting when God’s Real Presence in the Holy Eucharist alone suffices."

Commentary: Turning the Mass into a social event is not pleasing to Almighty God, common sense will tell you that. vtb

"God wants people to be good, nice, and fair to each other, as taught in the Bible and by most world religions."  (False!)
Hear that? That would be the train coming off the rails, sliding down an embankment into a dry creek bed, and exploding!  First off, nowhere in the Christian Scriptures are we told to be nice. We are told be to be humble, merciful, compassionate, bold, courageous, holy, strong, loving, and whole host of other things. But never merely nice. And let’s be honest, nice is a really low bar."

"Everything that we traditional Catholics believe in and do must have only one end; HOLINESS.  The work of the Holy Spirit is to SANCTIFY US and make us into other Christs."



"Tillerson points to 'clear, positive chemistry between' U.S. president and counterpart from Moscow."

"In common with many other countries, the Catholic Church in America today is closely intertwined with the major party on the left. In my religious congregation, for example, the U.S. Province is 60 to 80 percent Democrat. This is also the case in other religious orders and many whole dioceses. People caught up in this mixing of worlds have to flip back and forth between Catholic concepts and Democrat ideology as they go through the day. Unfortunately, many bishops do not show them anything better."

Commentary: This is not unexpected since the majority of Catholics in the United States are very lukewarm in the practice of their faith.  One can easily see this by the extremely low number that go to Confession on a regular basis.  If most Catholics do not care about theirs souls, they will not have the full guidance of the Holy Spirit.  Therefore they will not have wisdom and discernment for these evil times.  vtb

"Walt Disney Co.’s ABC declined to comment. The network, though, groused last month when NBC News intentionally misspelled an entire week of “Nightly News” broadcasts. Altogether, NBC, which is ranked second behind ABC in ratings, has played the misspell card 14 times since the start of the 2016-17 television season last fall."

"There were about 8 numbered Crusades from Catholic warriors into the Holy Land, the first one beginning in 1095, and the last one ending in 1272.  So this means that for less than 200 years, 177 to be exact, the Popes and Catholic warriors were fighting, off and on, to try to take back the Holy Land from the Muslims."

Commentary: The pope may be correct as concerns some countries, but not the United States.  Still trying to get even because of Trump's belief that global warming is a myth, Pope Francis chooses to attack the leadership of the U.S. while ignoring the fact that he himself has a distorted vision of traditional Church values.  vtb

Commentary: The pope's reasons are very clear.  He wants to ignore Church doctrine on marriage, and those who desire to follow the Word of God, Church tradition, and doctrine he dismisses, while not having the courage or charity to even tell them why.  vtb

"I love the cassock. It is practical, comfortable, defining, and a good memorare for both priest and layman."

"They took him home and the entire family surrounded him constantly with love, affection, and 24-7 care. Noah’s brain began to grow. And grow. And grow some more.  When he was 3, a brain scan showed that his brain “had expanded to 80% of a normal brain.” Now a movie on Britain’s Channel 5 called The Boy Who Grew A Brain documents just how far Noah has come."

Commentary: Following the decision of the morally sick members of the U.S. Supreme Court, and with the immoral support of US Democrats, Germany decides to dive into their cesspool.  vtb

“We don’t really understand what will make us happy,” Mattson writes. “Being loved by God and being able to love him in return is where true joy resides.” He continues, “All of the sex, all of the porn, all of my hopes and dreams of loves and earthly happiness, where a two-dimensional caricature of happiness. Happiness comes when we finally know who we are, why we’re here, and where we are headed.”  “I finally know that to have sex with a man really leads me away from true happiness”, Mattson concludes, “Thanks be to God, I know that now. That was a hard lesson to learn, but I’m glad I learned it.”

"If anger disfigures us before men, how much more deformed will it render us in the eyes of God! In this discourse I will show, in the first point, the destruction which anger unrestrained brings on the soul; and, in the second, how we ought to restrain anger in all occasions of provocation which may occur to us."


Commentary: Another unfortunate result of the false teachings of Pope Francis on marriage.  vtb

"Interesting and informative article about a very relevant subject: fighting Muslim bandits. In this case, the Muslims were pirates off the Barbary Coast who were pillaging American ships in the 1700’s. We were fighting the Muslims from America’s very beginnings. Islamic jihad itself has been around for centuries."

"Our “Church of Nice” will not say anything negative to or about those suffering from sodomy. Our clergy pretends the issue needed only compassion, not condemnation. We must be nice to everyone. We cannot even use the word ‘’sodomy” as it may offend someone. The sodomites must be called “gay” even though we know they are far from gay and have the highest of suicide rates. In reality we must love them, but with love we must attempt to convince them to change their lifestyle and get back on the road to Heaven, not to Hell.  As Father Groeschel once said, “The word ’nice’ is not in the Bible.”  The majority of our clergy are good, saintly priests; however, there have been many who have not protected the sheep. Where are our leaders who should have kept rampant homosexuality out of the seminaries? Instead coddled and protected actively gay men in their own ranks. We see our cardinals leading “gay” parades. We see our clergy covering up pedophilia. We see altars draped in the rainbow flag. We see our Masses being conducted by pedophile priests. And the list goes on and on.  Our USCCB continues to publish a voter’s guide encouraging all Catholics to vote for politicians who will not support our faith and will appoint the liberal, anti-Christian members of the Supreme Court.  Our bishops continue to sell out our Catholic beliefs by sponsoring “Catholic” organizations such as the CCHD and CRS which ignore Catholic teaching in order to accept government money.  The silence in our homilies concerning the sins of contraception and sodomy is deafening.  The reputations of our Catholic Colleges are even worse."

Commentary: Very well done animated video with a strong message.  vtb

"These are four developments are generally seen as extremely unpopular with most of the left in this country, and extremely popular with most of the right, and would ordinarily generate much outrage in the mainstream media."

"BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - Doctors at the Children’s Hospital in San Miguel, Argentina, found no explanation for the quick recovery of Martin Chain - a three-year-old boy who fell from the ninth floor when he was playing on the balcony of his apartment.  The June 7 accident left the boy on the verge of death. However, he only took 20 days to recover and shows no signs of long-term complications."

"In a major shake up of the Vatican's administration, Pope Francis replaced Catholicism's top theologian, a conservative German cardinal who has been at odds with the pontiff's vision of a more inclusive Church."

Commentary: What Pope Francis really means is he wants a more "liberal" Church that approves of not following Church doctrine.   vtb

"Forte claimed that the pope told him: “If we speak explicitly about Communion for the divorced and remarried, you do not know what a terrible mess we will make. So we won’t speak plainly, do it in a way that the premises are there, then I will draw out the conclusions.”

Commentary: More evidence that Pope Francis is deliberately choosing to cause confusion over his writings on this subject.  Very sad, and not a very good way to lead the Church.  Francis continues to live up to his reputation as "the pope of confusion."  vtb

Commentary: Weird ungodly religious practices result in the taking away of religious rights.  vtb

Theologically - no.  Because his allegiance is to Allah, The moon god of Arabia .
Religiously - no.  Because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam. (Quran,2:256)(Koran)
Scripturally - no.  Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran.
Geographically - no.  Because his allegiance is to Mecca , to which he turns in prayer five times a day.
Socially - no.  Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.
Politically - no.  Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America , the great Satan.
Spiritually - no. Because when we declare 'one nation under God,' The Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the Quran's 99 excellent names. 

Commentary:  Of course the above applies when the Church is lead by a true spiritual leader and not by someone who causes confusion, destroys the unity of the Church, and ignores Church doctrine such as is the case in today's Church.  vtb

"President Trump has done it again. The dishonest mainstream media are being shown for what they truly are. Their bias is becoming more and more apparent as the president trolls the media on Twitter and the left melts down over it."

"Bishop Paprocki: Gay activists have harassed my staff and me with obscene telephone calls, e-mail messages and letters using foul language and profanity, supposedly in the name of love and tolerance. I am sorry that people around me have been subjected to such hateful and malicious language."

Commentary: Another example of why US Democrats are morally corrupt. vtb


Commentary: Violence breeds violence.  A godless world gone insane.  vtb

Commentary: In spite of all the talk of "unity," the public deserves to know the true cause of this shooting.  The shooter without question, was influenced by the hate on the Left and the vengeance they are capable of.  Therefore, the Democrats are not worthy of any compliments for they have demonstrated their hatred against Trump and his administration since he took office.  We have witnessed it a number of times from Democratic politicians, so-called "celebrities," show offs on TV, and from protest groups who also used violence against our police forces and Trump supporters to demonstrate their hatred.  vtb


"Love him or hate him, we can sleep a little easier that President Trump is our President; we pray for his safety and his family’s, and we thank God every day that, for the next four years, we are in good, America-loving hands."

Commentary: It will not happen.  Their hatred and foolish beliefs clouds their vision for the future.  vtb

"The Yazidi sex slaves have learned the grisly details of Sharia law in operation the hard way. They have suffered the most barbaric forms of sexual violence at the hands of their masters, who have credibly argued that they are simply following in the footsteps of Prophet Mohammad and complying with Sharia law in its purest, most literal form."

"In their zeal to secure the Iran deal, the Obama administration prevented multiple federal agencies from thwarting Iranian-backed terrorist organizations. The Iran deal shields Iranian-backed terrorists from prosecution."

Commentary: This makes the lies of the Democrats and the press even more grave.  Having knowledge that something is not true while continuing to speak and publish lies is one of the most dirtiest, underhanded things you can do.  vtb

Commentary: Merkel is not a good leader.  She has made some very foolish moves (mass, uncontrolled immigration) in the past, and continues to follow a self-serving, private political path, rather than a one that serves the German public.  vtb

"Merkel is in no position to browbeat another country's immigration policy. Especially since the 'wisdom' of her own has problems at home."

"You will feel the anger and hostility people have for the church in general directed at you,' one new priest was told."

Commentary: This "anger" is the result of the coverup by the bishops regarding the sexual abuse scandal.  The same is true in the United States.  Respect for bishops and priests has greatly diminished.  A sad consequence of the lack of spirituality of many Catholic bishops.  vtb

"Sponsors of a Manhattan-based theater company’s portrayal of Julius Caesar are pulling funding for the production after the company chose to present Caesar as a Trump look-alike who gets stabbed to death during the play."

"In many European countries, Sunday church attendance is the 5-10 percent range whereas mosque attendance is very high in relation to the size of the Muslim population.

"In his first 100 days, President Donald J. Trump has taken bold action to restore prosperity, keep Americans safe and secure, and hold government accountable. At an historic pace, this President has enacted more legislation and signed more executive orders than any other president in over a half century. With a focus on rebuilding the military, ending illegal immigration, and restoring confidence in our economy, the President is keeping his promises to the American people."

Commentary: You will not find most, or perhaps all of his  achievements shown on the TV news as they have censored them, as have a vast number of newspapers and magazines.  Trump could have achieved more, but 100% of the selfish Democrats in Congress have blocked Trumps proposals and  refused to display any sort of patriotism for our country.  They have become traitors and therefore unfit to be re-elected or hold any type of government office in the future. vtb

Commentary: A good interview, but there is one point O'Reilly makes that is not true.  He equates Trumps trouble with the press to Obamas & Hillarys troubles.  There is a vast difference.  The amount of hate the opposition Party (Democrats) and the news media have for Trump far outweighs anything Obama or Hillary Clintion ever went through.  vtb

"Even if he were as morally defective as his critics maintain, my response is this: Trump’s character is less morally significant than defeating the left.  If the left wins, America loses. And if America loses, evil will engulf the world."

Commentary: The Democrats are following the temptations of Satan. They believe you have the "right" to murder an unborn human being, and have become liars like the devil and choose to slander President Trump because they lost the election. Therefore you cannot trust anything they say. vtb

Commentary: The cowards on the Left have chosen to censor news that exposes their lies.  vtb

"When all was said and done, it became obvious that there was no collusion between Trump and Russia; except for:  those who, such as the recently-indicted rabid Clinton-supporting Reality Winner, leaked classified information in efforts deliberately intended to injure the United States (or Donald Trump), and those persons, as-yet-unfingered, who (to score political points against Mr. Trump) "unmasked" people, such as General Flynn, whose names turned up in passing in surveillance and other counterintelligence reports."

"Terrorism has turned into a global issue, and headlines across the world are filled with the freshest information about the attacks. Terrorists are led by their fanatic belief. These people plant nothing but terror and death. President Donald Trump had the perfect solution to this problem, but we can’t say the same thing for the London mayor."

"Pence said in a speech in Wisconsin on Saturday that it's clear to him and most other policymakers in the GOP that Obamacare is failing; he even described it as "dead."  "Truth is, you'd have to be blinded by partisanship not to believe otherwise," Pence said. "But, unfortunately, some people are; Democrats in Congress to be exact."

"We heard quite a lot during Mr. Comey’s testimony to Congress on Thursday. But in what was yet another bombshell being downplayed by the mainstream media, we learned that President Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch asked him to downplay the Hillary Clinton email investigation."

He stressed the significance of the Eucharist, reminding her that He wants to be invited to every person’s life. Moreover, He warned against abusive reception of Holy Communion and its desecration."

"Complaining about what he (Trump) said were signs of “political schizophrenia” in the United States, Putin said Trump was not being allowed to do his job properly.  “It’s hard to imagine what else can these people who generate such nonsense and rubbish can dream up next,” said Putin...“What surprises me is that they are shaking up the domestic political situation using anti-Russian slogans. Either they don’t understand the damage they’re doing to their own country, in which case they are simply stupid, or they understand everything, (they are doing) in which case they are dangerous and corrupt.”

"He is a straight-forward, sincere man. You can't really classify him as a traditional politician," Putin said of Trump. "This is a person with a fresh view of things."

"The Trump administration seems to be winning the most on immigration. Despite some roadblocks on the travel ban, Trump has followed through on enforcing federal law so that we may bring order back to this land."

"God bless President Donald Trump who is helping to begin the process of restoring America’s Free Constitutional Republic."


"Just A Common Soldier, also known as A Soldier Died Today, is one of the most popular poems on the Internet. Written and published in 1987 by Canadian veteran and columnist A. Lawrence Vaincourt, it now appears in numerous anthologies, on thousands of websites and on July 4, 2008 it was carved into a marble monument at West Point, New York. ... Please enjoy this tribute to the Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen who have given so much for our country."

“This merciless slaughter of Christians in Egypt tears at our hearts and grieves our souls,” he said, after terrorists shot at a bus, killing at least 28 people."  He also pulled no punches on the “depraved, twisted, and thuggish ideology” of terrorists.  “The bloodletting of Christians must end, and all who aid their killers must be punished,” he said.  The President vowed to protect these historic communities from being obliterated.    “Civilization is at a precipice — and whether we climb or fall will be decided by our ability to join together to protect all faiths, all religions, and all innocent life,” he said.

Commentary: Trump defends Christians as opposed to obnoxious Obama who remained silent about their cruel treatment.  vtb

Donald Trump resisted concerted action on climate change and migrants at G7
*  Trump wants to 'throw out' a plan of a migrants' rights pact from the Italian hosts
*  He also told other leaders that he has not yet decided on the Paris climate pledge
*  G7's final statement will be six pages when released, it was 32 pages last year

Commentary: Censoring websites that identify terrorists and their activities is a poor example of Western style "freedoms."  The UK and European ISPs are looking at the wrong "suspects."  vtb

"Meet the new lynch mob. It’s no different from the old lynch mob, except it’s not called a lynch mob anymore: it’s called “justice.”

Commentary: The city has an extremely high rate of murders and other crimes that places it among the highest in the nation.  This speaks for the lack of wisdom in city government officials.  vtb

"Speaking to members of the U.S. military on Memorial Day weekend, Trump reaffirmed his commitment to ramping up military spending and supporting men and women in the armed services."

Commentary: Trump loves our men & women in our Military.  Obama never gave them much credit which is the reason they did not like him very much.  vtb

“We are not going to kick any deserving person off any meaningful program. And: "We are going to measure compassion and success by the number of people we help get off of those [social] programs and get back in charge of their own lives.”

Commentary: The US Bishops have for years, been lacking in solid leadership.  Their public image to many is one of being an arm of the Democratic Party rather than spiritual leaders.  vtb

“The generality of the leadership of the Church is very disappointing at the moment.” Talking to she added that she was “scandalized” about this.  Silvas also criticized, what she called, “affective papalism” and asks the question, “What happens when the Pope is disobedient to the [previous] Pope?”

"The survey, based on data from 137,000 first-time students at 184 colleges and universities in the U.S., showed that college students with no religious affiliation were only at 10 percent in 1986, but have now tripled, rising up to 31 percent in 2016.

Commentary: This is not surprising since many young people (with the approval of their parents) are caught up with the things of this world, rather than pursuing the Things of the Lord's Spirit.  This means they have been taken in by the deceitful tactics of Satan: "I will not now speak many things with you.  For the prince of this world (Satan) cometh, and in me he hath not any thing."  [John 14:30]

Commentary: Although there are many good African Americans, this man is not one of them.  Using your personal views to insult students who may disagree with you is a sick way of "teaching" at an institution of so-called "higher learning."  vtb

"USAA advertised on Rachel Maddow’s show. They advertised on Lawrence O’Donnell’s show. They advertised on Chris Hayes’ show. All three of those shows are known for being presented from a liberal point of view. The company has yet to return a call seeking an explanation for the apparent discrepancy."

"After facing a backlash for pulling advertisements from Fox News’ host Sean Hannity’s show, USAA will no longer run ads on liberal MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s show."

Commentary: The bishops support is scattered, but there are enough to make noise and hopefully counter the "off the traditional road" direction this pope is taking.  vtb

Commentary: Pope Francis is not among the innocent in regard to climate change either.  He speaks beautifully on certain spiritual subjects, but seems naive on deeper spiritual happenings.  vtb

"From the best-selling author of The Secrets, Chastisement, and Triumph, which was honored as “Book of the Year”, comes a new book about the final great battle. An easily readable, well-researched, and inspiring book about the divine plan to bring true peace to the world, this book uses solid sources like the Bible, credible Christian prophecy, and regarded heavenly prophecies of our times to detail the coming events of the last great battle in CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER as described in the Book of Revelation."

Commentary: Most people, out of fear, will ignore this book due to focusing on the present rather than attempting to study revealed future events that are much closer than we realize.  vtb

Commentary: They are doing the same thing on late-night TV shows.  They are finding that ridicule, slander, and gossip about and against Trump is bringing in more viewers, sponsors and money.  What ignorant cowards they are.  They will face a great and severe judgement from the Lord.  vtb

"The world should be worried too, because when China stumbles, the effects are worldwide. In January 2016, China's Shanghai composite crashed more than 24% amid a botched yuan devaluation and clumsy regulatory action. The S&P 500 plunged more than 11% to its early February low. The Federal Reserve, which raised rates in December 2015 and planned on four hikes in 2016, backed off and didn't move again until last December."


Commentary: It may be "impossible," but that is exactly what Pope Francis is allowing.  vtb


"The bishops of Belgium have published a pastoral letter on marriage and the family in which they point out that the apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia opens a door for "divorced remarried" to receive the sacraments."

Commentary: The writer of this article is off base when it comes to the activities of the Trump Administration, but at least he can see the vengefulness that Pope Francis displays for those who disagree with his opinions (the need for a wall and the environmental changes), although they are legitimate   internal affairs of the United States and should not be interfered with by the Vatican.  President Trump outclassed the pope on this visit to the Vatican.  vtb

"The elegance, wisdom and class President Trump has displayed on his first foreign policy trip continues to baffle political elitists and fake news media. 1 Corinthians 1:27 comes to mind. "But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise."  Trump is a man of the people who speaks like a human being. Obama spoke like an arrogant blowhard."

“We are not going to take part in the madness of the Brussel elite. We want to help people, not the political elites. I have a courage to say, and I have a courage to ask, all European political elites a question: Where are you headed, Europe? Rise from your knees and from your lethargy, or you will be crying over your children every day."

"Our health care system under Obamacare is unsustainable, yet Democrats will not help reform it. Our federal fiscal condition is unsustainable, yet Democrats actively obstruct any real remedies."

"The Center for Medical Progress has released more damning undercover footage of Planned Parenthood, and honestly this is some of the most heartless and horrific footage we have seen yet."

"During their meeting, Pope Francis encouraged President Trump to work towards creating peace in our world and gifted him with a medallion made by a Roman artist featuring an olive tree as a symbol of peace. You can see this beautiful medallion in the video below. At the conclusion of their visit, President Trump thanked Pope Francis and said, “I won’t forget what you said.”

Commentary: Trump should be given credit for his beliefs.  Yes, Pope Francis may have impressed him, but Trump did this action on his own because he is already a man of peace.   However, when necessary, he is also man enough to  demonstrate that the US is no longer a wimpy country, such as it was when it was lead by Obama.   vtb

"A Texas state lawmaker received threats for the second time this year after he questioned why the state has more protections for animals than it does for unborn babies."

Commentary:  Deliberate abortion is murder and the US Democratic Party is guilty of approving of it.  This fact should be broadcast all over the world.   vtb

"For every one new convert, 26 Christians abandon the Faith in the United Kingdom... The nonreligious population (48,6%) in the UK, predominantly young, white and male, is now bigger than its combined Christian one (43%)."

Commentary: This explains why Obama is so popular in the UK.  He too is a "non-religious" person, even though he "claims" he is a Christian.  However he cannot escape his actions, for they speak louder than his false words.   vtb

"A group calling itself Maltese Catholics United for the Faith took out a "controversial" full-page ad in local newspaper Malta Today. The ad was aimed at politicians running in the upcoming June 3 general election."

"We can experience a touch of the infinite now, before we go on to the true Infinite. All we have to do is, in the words of Scripture, “Cease striving and know that I am God.”


We certainly in no way pretend that these comments represent the voice or view of the majority – quite the opposite actually.  If you want to read comments praising 'Pope Francis' you need only look to any mainstream (including mainstream 'Catholic') news source.  The comments below, very admittedly, represent only a very small and little heard from minority.  In fact, many Catholics (and the rest of the world) wish they would just be quiet, get in line, and not make waves.  We are glad and grateful that they speak.  Here, we might all remember the words of Saint Athanasius:  "Even if Catholics faithful to tradition are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the True Church of Jesus Christ."

"In Cracow-Pradnik, June 2, 1938, the Lord Jesus directed a young Polish Sister of Mercy on a three-day retreat. Faustina Kowalska painstakingly recorded Christ’s instruction in her diary that is a mystical manual on prayer and Divine Mercy."

“Shortly after the middle of the 20th century” … most certainly points to the infamous anti-authority, pro-hedonism 1960s, that ushered in unparalleled self-indulgence (the essence of the demonic) into our world. In the midst of this, our Church has not only suffered unprecedented losses in the sheer number of souls, but we are witnessing an epidemic of liturgical abuse and rampant sacrilege. In an article that speaks to this, I called this a “Stealth Arianism.” Many claim we very well could be in the throes of what is termed, “The Great Apostasy.”

Commentary: The Democrats have become experts at slander, and many uninformed people have believed their lies.  vtb

"Brennan was asked the question about whether any evidence of actual “collusion” between Trump 2016 campaign  and the Russian government has been uncovered.  I am sure Brennan had a tough time telling the truth here, but he actually did!  He said NO SUCH EVIDENCE HAD BEEN FOUND!"

"The latest poll numbers are out. Rasmussen (the most accurate poll of the 2016 election) has Trump at 48 percent approval.   It's important to note that's just about the exact same place he was at when he was elected president- just under half the country supports him. Since we come out to vote in much higher numbers...and we have an electoral edge in Midwest battleground states...48 percent is all Trump needs to win re-election again."

"Many people today put Hell in opposition to the love of God, but Jesus combines them. Here is an important truth: No one loves you more than Jesus Christ, yet no one spoke of or taught on Hell and Judgment more than He did. He gave warning after warning and told parable after parable, practically shouting about judgment and the reality of Hell."

"During his recent visit to Israel, President Donald Trump made a 14-year old girl’s dream come true. Emilee Imbar has been battling cancer for the last seven years, and has dreamed of meeting with the U.S. President."

"What about President Donald Trump's complaint about "fake news"? Let's look at some examples of "Great Moments in 'Journalism'" over the last few years."

"The anti-Trump venom from the mainstream media has become so virulent that broadcasters and reporters alike risk becoming little more than extensions of the late-night “comedic” lineup, bashing the President without regard for truth or factual accuracy. And above all, most of these journalists realize, and sometimes admit, that they want to help the Democrats win the next election."

Commentary: Late night mentally unbalanced TV hosts continue to show their immaturity.  Child like behavior and acting like spoiled brats defines their corrupt personalities.  Not worth watching them.  vtb

Commentary: Trump does what he believes is right.  However, should he become more informed, he does not hesitate to revise his original opinions.  That is the type flexibility nations should require of their leader.  Obama was not flexible and never fit in as a good leader, but rather he confirmed over and over that he was a selfish, uncaring leader.  vtb

"A fiery debate between two Muslims took place on an Australian news program called Sunrise in the days after the suicide blast in Manchester, England. The guests were two prominent Islamic leaders who sharply disagreed with each other on what their religion teaches."

Commentary:  Disagreement on such serious subjects does not give the appearance of a truly reliable "religion" (If you can call it that, since it is more of a "sect").  The door is still left open to violence for some, and a peaceful attitude for others, and that is not very reassuring.   vtb 

"The secret court that oversees government snooping took the Obama administration to task late last year, suggesting it created "a very serious Fourth Amendment issue" by violating rules the government itself had implemented regarding the surveillance of Americans."

"The U.S. is essentially ignoring so-called "de-escalation zones" declared by Russia and Syria while increasing contacts with the Russians to avoid conflict in Syrian airspace..."

"This has all become a ritual. Democrat propaganda portrays Republicans as monsters.  Sooner or later, everything they propose becomes a crime against humanity some way or another.  I suppose people vary in how long it takes them to filter out continuous cries of "alarm," as the fable of The Boy Who Cried Wolf describes."

"Trump proposes a budget to cut Welfare and Entitlements by $1.7 trillion. Liberals will go crazy."

"The Big Lie works. The Democrat/War Party concocts several howling lies per week, amplifies them endlessly in the corporate media, and then repeats the process the next week with a new batch of lies against targeted states and Donald Trump’s associates. Meanwhile, the Democrats offer absolutely nothing of substance. They want “to get back into power without presenting any policies that the people want to see enacted.”

"First, look at the faces of both men. Do you see any aggression? Do you see any impatience? Do you see any tension whatsoever between them? Do you see anyone else who’s standing there bothered or taken aback by anything whatsoever?"

"Of these journalists Hannity relates, “The truth does not matter to these people that call themselves journalists,” calling them  “sore-loser” explaining that the same media were in collusion with Clinton surrogates with the mission to attack Trump."

Commentary: Not surprising since Democrats believe you have the "right" to kill an unborn human being and the vast majority of the press are Democrats.  So what moral credentials do they actually possess?  None!  vtb

Commentary: Drop your policies and credit card with USAA if after calling them they do not promise to reverse their decision.  They have proven themselves to be part of the "witch hunt" against Conservatives.  How sad!


"Islamic terrorists should be scorned, derided, mocked, and treated as small. They’re not martyrs, they’re not warriors, they’re not victims. They’re evil losers."

"Hundreds of people fled the arena screaming, many covered in blood, after hearing 'loud' bangs at the end of the pop concert last night."

"Abedi was the son of Libyan refugees, who fled the African country years ago to escape the regime of former dictator Muammar Gaddafi, according to the United Kingdom Telegraph."

"Islamic State, also known as ISIS, ISIL, and Daesh, boasted Tuesday about its involvement in the Muslim terrorist attack, referring to the now-aerosolized bomber as a “soldier of the Caliphate.”

"President Donald Trump's remarks as prepared for delivery."

"Father Rafic Greiche, spokesman for the Egyptian bishops, welcomed Donald Trump's remarks to Muslim leaders, calling them "very, very frank," especially in light of several recent bombings, beheadings and other attacks claimed by the so-called Islamic State on Egyptian Christians and churches."

“Nothing helps you learn and understand people better than coming to their homes, where they live and seeing them face to face, seeing their families, and seeing their communities," Tillerson said. "We all share the same wants and desires for ourselves and our people, and our families," he said. "We want our children to grow up without fear. That’s such a strongly held view around the world, certainly among the Muslim world certainly among the non-Muslim world."

Commentary: We must not be fooled by appearances, Islam is a false religion and once in power, those who follow its teachings will use violent means to accomplish their goal of world domination.  vtb

Commentary: Jerusalem belongs in Israel, and it is only right that this fact be recognized by all the nations of the world.  vtb

"In a visit fraught with symbolism, President Trump on Monday became the first sitting U.S. president to set foot in the Old City of Jerusalem.  The president and first lady Melania Trump visited the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, traditional site of Jesus’ crucifixion, burial and resurrection, and the Western Wall, part of the Jewish temple complex destroyed by Rome in 70 C.E."

Commentary: Although the title of this article says one thing, very little is actually written about Putin, leaving the reader a bit puzzled.  vtb

Commentary: The work of obnoxious Obama comes to light.  vtb

Commentary: Insincere Obama's words about "racism" did not match his actions as he failed to improve the lives of African Americans.  vtb

"Though Benedict is still living, Francis is trying to bury him. Upon his election in 2013, Francis began to pursue an agenda that Joseph Ratzinger had opposed throughout his career. A stress on the pastoral over against the doctrinal, a promotion of diverse disciplinary and doctrinal approaches in local churches, the opening of Communion to the divorced and remarried—all these proposals were weighed and rejected by Ratzinger more than ten years ago in a heated debate with Walter Kasper."

Commentary: The differences between a liberal pope who believes in "diversity" to the point of confusion, and a conservative pope who believes the Church must follow tradition and established doctrine.  vtb

Commentary: Burke is being attacked even by other cardinals, while Pope Francis stands by and does nothing.  vtb

"The Mass and the reception of the Eucharist is the centerpiece of the Christian life. So we better take it seriously!  Unfortunately, whether it’s out of ignorance or laziness, it seems most Catholics aren’t receiving the Eucharist correctly."

Commentary: Not mentioned is why the priest is not correcting those who receive Holy Communion poorly, or why bishops are not issuing new directives to correct this scandal.  vtb  

"The Trump administration’s dedication to tackling tax reform reflects an historic moment in the course of the United States economy. The GOP must seize this opportunity by enacting tax policies that will restart economic growth and improve the business climate for American entrepreneurs."

"It reaches far beyond what Congress will approve and defies what economics textbooks say should happen. However, if its essential provisions are preserved, the plan would avert fiscal calamity, and restore prosperity and hope for the nation’s most struggling citizens."

"In place of states receiving matching funds for approved expenditures, states could choose to receive funds based on their per capita expenditures in 2016. Or the states could choose to receive a federal block grant, which would be a fixed amount.  Both options provide states with much more flexibility in how they run Medicaid."

"Kurtz: How the mainstream media are piling on Trump.  You may have gotten the impression that the coverage of President Trump is kinda sorta pretty negative.  That’s not quite right: It’s overwhelmingly negative. Stunningly negative."

Commentary: To imply that somehow unfair reporting is the public's fault is not anywhere near the truth.  A vast number of the press are, in Trump's words, "not honest."  Any attempt to water-down that assessment by someone in the press only confirms the dishonesty of the press.  vtb

“This anti-Gospel, which seeks to elevate the individual’s will to consume, to pleasure and to power over the Will of God, was rejected by Christ when tempted in the wilderness. Disguised as ‘human rights,’ it has reappeared, in all its luciferian hubris, to promulgate a narcissistic, hedonistic attitude that rejects any constraint except that imposed by man-made laws,” he said.

"Contrary to a recent Gallup poll, another survey shows that the percentage of Americans who believe the Bible is the literal Word of God has remained remarkably stable over the past several decades.

"“Atheist” clergymen and even a “Satanic” religion have recently appeared. Some 20,000-30,000 Protestant congregations are said to exist. Few suppose an equivalent number of gods, though pagans had quite a few, as do Hindus. Usually in polytheistic situations, we find greater and lesser gods.  This country has no official religion. It does (or did) encourage and respect most religions that have no obvious flaws. It prefers that each clergyman pray after the manner of his own religion. We all agree to listen respectfully, even if it is not exactly our way."

Commentary:  How can any so-called "civilized" country "praise killings?"  The answer is, China is not a civilized country, but a country lead by dictators who have no respect for freedom or Christian values.  Therefore, China cannot be trusted to be a reliable ally.  vtb

Commentary: This article is from: Persecution - International Christian Concern - Your bridge to the persecuted Church."

"While all eyes are on the Navy's hopes to surge the fleet to 355 ships, the biggest surprise in next year's budget request for the service may come in manpower.  Although previous budgeting plans called for for the service's end strength to remain relatively steady at close to 323,000 active-duty sailors through 2021, this year's request reflects plans to increase active-duty end strength to 327,900."

Sound crazy? If so, then know this: t’s a black thing. You wouldn’t understand. But it does explain why last year, immediately after a black person killed five Dallas cops, 100 black people looted a convenience store, then stayed in the parking lot to dance with joy. Yes, dance. On video. In front of cops.   And no, I would not believe that either if I did not see it for myself on YouTube. You can too."


"Cardinal Raymond Burke issued a call this morning for the Catholic faithful to “work for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”  Cardinal Burke, who is one of the four Cardinals who have asked Pope Francis for a clarification of Amoris Laetitia, made his appeal at the Rome Life Forum, in the month of the centenary of Our Lady of Fatima’s first apparition to the three shepherd children."

Commentary: Putin, our so-called "enemy," has more common sense and insights than the Democratic Party and the news media all together.  vtb

"Ever since Donald Trump won the presidency, the left's descent into madness has taken many forms, none more distasteful than its embrace of profanity and gross scatological references."

Commentary: Grave sins contribute to degrees of insanity and a lack of proper judgement.  Most on the Left, are in the grip of the devil and therefore will be lacking in wisdom.  vtb

"Pence cited Trump as "an example of leadership and perseverance" to applause from the crowd, citing the president's efforts on the economy, education, more applause — for standing "without apology for the sanctity of life and all the God-given liberties in the Constitution of the United States."

"Baseball manager Leo “The Lip” Durocher famously said: “Nice guys finish last.” That may or may not be accurate, but we do know that everyone, nice or not, “finishes.” We all have an expiration date. We are wise, therefore, in celebrating the counsels and consolations of those whose examples lead us along the right paths."

"Archbishop of Montreal Christian Lépine has defended giving Holy Communion to Canada’s notoriously pro-abortion Catholic prime minister during Mass on Wednesday, describing it as “a gesture of hope.”

Commentary: Since when is aiding in a sacrilege a "gesture of hope"? It is more accurate to call it "a gesture of scandal."  vtb

"Therefore whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord...For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh judgment to himself."  (1 Corinthians 11:27 & 29)

"Predictably, the liberal hate machine has lashed out at Benedict, just as they lashed out at Card. Sarah last year when he suggested that priests should say Mass ad orientem."

Commentary: The "ultra-liberal liturgist Andrea Grillo" does not appear to know the harm he is doing.  To attack a former pope who is now 90 years old is a cowardly, disgraceful act.  He should be severely admonished by Pope France or a Vatican official, but since Mr. Grillo is a liberal, the odds are against that happening.  vtb

"Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, the chairman of the Council of Cardinals, has launched a startling personal attack on Cardinal Raymond Burke, calling the American prelate “a poor man,” and saying that his thoughts “don’t merit further comment.”

Commentary: Another uncharitable act by a liberal that will not warrant a response from the liberal Pope Francis.  vtb

"Cardinal Caffarra has offered at the Rome Life Forum a lecture on the apocalyptic signs of present-day society: abortion and the exaltation of homosexuality, something that can only be fought with the testimony, "being witnesses of the Truth, as If we were in a trial and the accused was Christ."

"The Commission for the Protection of Christian Values is a lower house coalition of 46 members of Parliament coming together to make sure Russian laws conform to Biblical standards of morality and decency. New laws are proposed and existing laws are evaluated for their impact on Russian society in terms of Christian values."

Commentary: The Orthodox Church in Russia again proves it is spiritually stronger than the Catholic Church in America.  vtb

"Christina Cauterucci is very, very upset that the Oklahoma House of Representatives just passed a non-binding resolution affirming abortion to be the “murder of unborn children.” She admits up front that it has absolutely no legal force and is just a statement of principles, but no matter; speaking the truth at all is “an insult to parents.”

"Editor’s note: Cardinal Caffarra gave this talk at the Rome Life Forum on May 19, 2017."

"How do abortionists describe preborn children and the violent abortion procedures they perform on them?  A video has gone viral that exposes what abortionists admit when they don’t realize the cameras are rolling.

"A political-science journal that published an oft-cited study claiming conservatives were more likely to show traits associated with “psychoticism” now says it got it wrong. Very wrong.  The American Journal of Political Science published a correction this year saying that the 2012 paper has “an error” — and that liberal political beliefs, not conservative ones, are actually linked to psychoticism."

"In a scathing and long overdue real talk criticism of the situation of the Church in Europe and with Islam, Archbishop Carlo Liberati said that because of the moral decadence of the European people they have become modern day pagans who have rejected Christianity and hurt the most vulnerable among them and that people are refusing to address the problem. As a result, he says that Europe who will be conquered by the Muslims once Islam is recognized as a “mainstream” religion within a decade or less..."

"Disgusted, the inhabitants of the neighborhood decided to launch a large petition to denounce the situation. Every day becomes more and more oppressive. Young girls, who can no longer go out alone, cannot wear a skirt or trousers that cling too close to the body without receiving a lash of insults: one of them tells of having her hair lit up by a cigarette."

Commentary:  Of course, young girls (and women) should always dress modestly, but immodest dressers should not be treated harshly and disrespectfully.  vtb

"Today’s moderate Muslim is tomorrow’s jihadi. The Islamic State is calling the ummah (worldwide Muslim community) to jihad according the Islamic texts and teachings.  A vast proportion of ISIS recruits are “far from being uneducated or illiterate,” a World Bank has found in a study of why people join terrorist groups. The report says some of the recruits tend to be even better educated than their average countrymen. It is not surprising. The Caliph himself has a PhD in Islamic theology."


"It is our solemn duty as Catholics, therefore, to be conscious of our duty to America, and to preserve its freedom by preserving its faith in God. . .But as we talk about patriotism, it might be well to remind ourselves that in a crisis like this even devotion to the stars and stripes is not enough to save us. We must look beyond them to other stars and stripes, namely the stars and stripes of Christ, by Whose stars we are illuminated and by whose stripes we are healed!"

Note: This column is an excerpt from an address then Father Sheen (he later became Archbishop Fulton Sheen) delivered on The Catholic Hour radio program on February 20, 1938.

Commentary: Bishop Sheen was truly "a man for all seasons."  vtb

"A Polish Catholic can hear from his bishops that the remarried cannot receive Holy Communion, while if he goes go to Germany, the opposite will be told to him. The Catholic teaching must not be changed, it must be unified everywhere. The Pope, being the Vicar of Christ, is the only one who can publicly decide on this debate. We are talking about fundamental issues that are sensitive to us. Francis has not given any clear guidance in the past two years. His task, among other things, is to strengthen believers in their faith and to govern the Church."

Commentary: "The Pope of Confusion" continues to live up to his reputation.  Francis only "leads" when it suits his own personal goals, but even then he at times leads us in the wrong direction and sets a bad example by approving of immoral relationships.  On the surface he appears to be very spiritual with deep insights into what the Church needs.  However, at the same time he is wrong on a number of key moral issues and is therefore causing great harm to the unity of the Church and appears to be indifferent about it.  When Francis was elected pope, it is debatable whether it was the work of the Holy Spirit or the work of the devil.  Regardless, at this stage of the papacy of Francis, Satan is pleased, but the Holy Spirit is grieved at the inability of this pope to be a good Shepherd and take proper care of his sheep.  Dangerous times lie ahead for the Church.  vtb

"In the final analysis, Christ is the Church, and the Church is Christ, and the Church embraces as her members all the righteous patriarchs and prophets of the Old Covenant freed from limbo by Christ’s harrowing of Hades. One Holy Spirit speaks of One Holy God in One Holy Church from Adam to today."

Commentary: Sadly, we are no longer One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church.  Many within the Church have shut out the Holy Spirit from their daily lives and from their important decisions.  Our bishops are weak and often unresponsive to our complaints, and that only makes matters worse.  Compliment a bishop or priest and you will get a "thank you," but any form of complaint is met with silence or even sarcasm.  vtb

"The Consecration has not yet been made. I was there on March 25 [1984] in St. Peter’s Square, I was in the front row, practically within touching distance of the Holy Father. John Paul II wanted to consecrate Russia, but his entourage did not, fearing that the Orthodox would be antagonized, and they almost thwarted him. Therefore, when His Holiness consecrated the world on his knees, he added a sentence not included in the distributed version that instead said to consecrate “especially those nations of which you yourself have asked for their consecration.” So, indirectly, this included Russia. However, a specific consecration has not yet been made."

Commentary: An effort (March 25, 1984) by Pope John Paul II may have been made to please man and place man before God, but it appears it was not a conscious effort.  However, we did have the "period of peace" that was promised after the consecration that Sister Lucia said was indeed made correctly.  vtb


"Archbishop Kondrusiewicz said he met three times with Carmelite Sister Lucia dos Santos, one of the three children who received the visions of Mary.  At the first meeting, in 1991, he told Sister Lucia that he was the Catholic archbishop in Moscow. “She asked several times, ‘Is it true?'”  ‘So,’ she said, ‘it means the prophecy of Fatima is fulfilled,'” Archbishop Kondrusiewicz said."

"A Third World War—which could have been nuclear—was foreseen, but it was averted because the pope made the Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary."

The End-Times - “The final battle between the Lord and the kingdom of Satan will be about marriage and the family. Do not be afraid, because anyone who works for the sanctity of marriage and the family will always be fought and opposed in every way, because this is the decisive issue. However, Our Lady has already crushed his head.”

Commentary: We are now experiencing that "final battle."  vtb


"The Pope responded, “I never make a judgment of a person without listening to them. I believe that I should not do this. In our talk things will come out, I will say what I think, he will say what he thinks, but I never, ever, wanted to make a judgment without hearing the person.”

Commentary:  It is hard to believe Pope Francis "forgot" what he said about President Trump.  Why would Francis lie about these things?  It does not say much for his credibility.  vtb

Also see:

"Pope Francis: "A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian,"   Trump wasted no time firing back..."For a religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful."

Commentary: Trump is thinking "ONLY" about building a wall?  That is quite a stretch and a very unfair "judgement"  of a world leader.  vtb

And see:

"In times of crisis, we lack judgment, and that is a constant reference for me. Let's look for a savior who gives us back our identity and lets defend ourselves with walls, barbed-wire, whatever, from other peoples that may rob us of our identity."

Commentary: Note that Francis says nothing about Obama, although Obama approves of the murder of millions of unborn human beings and approves of homosexual marriage. Does Francis really believe building a wall to keep America safer is worse than the killing of millions through abortions?  vtb

“I personally am more suspicious, I prefer the Madonna as Mother, our Mother, and not a woman who’s the head of an office, who every day sends a message at a certain hour. This is not the Mother of Jesus. And these presumed apparitions don’t have a lot of value.”

Commentary: It should not be what Francis "prefers," as if there are limits to what Our Blessed Mother can or wishes to do.  A review of the Messages is what Fancies should be considering, and not a shallow, quick opinion of what he likes or dislikes.  vtb

"I was once talking with a priest about the strange phenomenon of options in the new rite of Mass and the other sacraments. He made the observation that whenever there are multiple options, one of which is traditional and the others more recent inventions, there seems to be a subtle pressure to choose the more recent inventions, with the consequence that, as he put it, the traditional practice is “optioned out of existence.”

Commentary: Changing the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass to fit the "times" continues to be the goal of the "progressives" and "modernists" in the Church.  Traditionally, this has been wrong, and even sinful, but "tradition" appears to mean little for many of the clergy in today's Church.  vtb

“By modernizing this important policy and expanding it to include $8.8 billion in foreign aid, President Trump is continuing Ronald Reagan’s pro-life legacy. This executive order does not cut a single penny from U.S. aid, rather it simply ensures our hard-earned tax dollars are used by other health care entities that act consistently to save lives, rather than promoting and performing abortion. Abortion is not health care.”

"This sounds more like a threat than a promise. And if the German people vote for this Führer with delusions of a great Germanic-Islamic continent, then they deserve everything is is coming to them. What she says is madness, bloody madness. Clearly, they French will go along. They always do (see: Vichy)."

"As mayor of a major English Channel port, Mr Philippe often praised the decision to keep the border with Britain shut to asylum seekers so as to make sure that migrants were processed properly in France."

"Amid the Syrian crisis we ought to remember a history that the American Mainstream Media would have us forget. Ironically, in the words of former President Barack Obama, “We know Assad has been protecting the Christians.”  Reporter Alessandra Nucci stated this fact in 2013, but it remains still quite true today...”

"A journalist witnesses how teachers teach students the ideology of the Islamic State based on hatred and rejection of anyone who is unfaithful to the Koran."


Commentary: I have only seen part of one show, but that was  enough for me.  Not covered in this article was Mr. Noah's arrogance, and the spiritual stupidity he displayed to his audience and conservative guest, Tomi Lahren.  Like a man brought up without manners, he consistently interrupted Ms. Lahren and mocked her at every opportunity.  Approving of the violence caused by Black Lives Matter and other groups of Blacks, he believed it to be "normal" for any group involved in protests.  While he can be "witty," he used his humor not for good, but to ridicule and attack the moral values of Ms.Lahren.  This is apparently because he, himself lacks those values.  However, Mr. Noah is not alone, all so-called "late night" hosts do exactly the same thing.  They apparently exist not to offer an entertaining comical look at the world, but to play politics at the expense of patriotic Americans.  vtb

"Hell is not much spoken of these days, especially not in the graphic ways that Lucia recounts in her memoirs. The very idea, I recently read in a theology book, is one “in the last analysis, unworthy of Jesus”. The trouble is, Jesus himself disagrees. His own descriptions, moreover, are graphically to the point. Thus when Our Lady of Fatima speaks of “the fires of hell," she is simply repeating an image used often by her Son (Mark 9:43; Matthew 13:42, 50; 25:41)."

"It is imperative for any Commander in Chief to love his or her country and take steps to preserve the freedoms of America. Our nation thrives when our leaders possess effectiveness and good judgement. The USA is so fortunate to have President Trump in office, especially when noting the abysmal alternative that calls herself Hillary Clinton. Despite the lies, conspiracy theories, and attacks thrown at Mr. Trump on a daily basis, he never fails to continue fighting for America; this is a man who I am very proud to call my President."

President Trump: "The Fake Media is working overtime today!"

"Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) pressed McCabe on whether he felt the FBI had adequate resources for the investigation, and McCabe replied: “Sir, if you are referring to the Russia investigation, I do. I believe we have the adequate resources to do it. And I know that we have resourced that investigation adequately.”

"Partisanship seems to have no limits these days. Both parties are equally at fault, as are extremists among the public and within the media. It is getting harder and harder to have a nuanced debate about complex political issues. Everything is either evil or good. Nothing has elements of both. Actions either deserve criminal indictment or the Nobel Prize."

"The recent violence that's marked our college campuses is seeping into the rest of society, and the vast majority of it comes from the intolerant Left."

"It was expected that protests to Donald Trump’s Presidency would last for a while, but we have past 100 days and they show no signs of abating. Many have wondered how it is that people can afford to be out protesting every day, and how the permanent protesters are actually supporting themselves."

"I. The internet is “tone-deaf.” - II. Reading things as absolutes - III. Taking things personally."

"The National Association of Assistant United States Attorneys backed the move, saying it would make the public safer and give prosecutors to “tools that Congress intended” to lock up drug dealers and dismantle gangs."

Commentary: Great interview with a Black bishop who is critical of the Obama Administration's weak attitude towards drug dealers, making the drug situation worse.  vtb

"While libertarianism has a number of tenets that are in accord with Catholic social teaching, complete integration of the two is ultimately impracticable."

Commentary: The stupid hypocrisy of the Democrats and the biased press is again exposed.  vtb

"The distortions caused by mental illness, coupled with what Christians know about our Adversary, (the devil) render the notion of consent in the Canadian proposal absurd. When you hear, “please let me die,” you can never be certain whose words you’re hearing: the person’s, the illness’s or the Adversary’s."

Commentary: The only ones truly mentally ill are those who support laws that put people to death without a fair trial or fair hearing by a panel of qualified believers in Almighty God.  vtb
"It’s not clear why there were photos taken of the crowds during the Miracle of Sun, but none of the Sun itself. Maybe the photographers couldn’t see it (not everyone could)? Or maybe no photos taken of the sky turned out."

"The firing has stoked charges of a cover-up and again raised the questions, Why, if Trump has nothing to hide, does he act so guilty? Why, if there’s no fire, is there always so much smoke?"

Commentary: The writer of this article is confused.  Trump is not "acting guilty."  He is simply being himself - a man among many who is fed up with the Democrats making mountains out of molehills.  vtb

"The president’s tweet showcases a 2-minute video that weaves together a collection of brutal statements made against Comey by leading Democrats including Sen Sanders and Rep Pelosi.  Along with the video, the president wrote: “The Democrats should be ashamed. This is a disgrace!”

Commentary: Democrats again live up to and imitate their mascot - a jackass!   vtb

Commentary: Will the liberal media apologize and retract the story?  NO.  If they did that it would project honesty, and that does not define today's news media.  vtb

"Comey Fired! The Left positively livid! Especially that smooth-talking hypocrite, Senator Chuck Schumer. Trump should have fired Comey sooner...Maybe the day Schumer called for Comey to be fired?  We know Schumer would have still found fault."

Commentary: Trump did not make a big issue of the firing of Comey, the press falsely has.  Therefore Trump has a right to defend himself.  If that is an issue, then we are truly a nation with no sense of justice.  vtb

Commentary:Unethical conduct by people in public office has become so common that it is no longer thought of as breaking any laws or the cause of any scandal.  A sad state of affairs.  vtb

"French writer Samuel Pruvot, who interviewed the new president at length for a book, said Macron sought baptism at age 12 under the influence of his Jesuit teachers, but viewed the Catholic faith “more intellectually than spiritually” and would “distance himself as much as possible from Church, faith and Catholicism” as president."

Commentary: Not the mark of a true Catholic, but he is not alone.  Many devout Catholics wonder just how many "true Catholics" still exist in today's corrupt world?   vtb

"The fact is that between Pope Francis and the Venezuelan bishops, concerning the crisis that is ravaging the country, there is an abyss. The bishops stand with the population that is protesting against the dictatorship, and are respected and listened to as authoritative guides. While Bergoglio is judged on a par with Pontius Pilate, unforgivably reckless with Maduro and Chavism, in addition to being incomprehensibly reticent on the victims of the repression and on the aggression that is striking the Church itself."

Commentary: Pope Francis should not publicly be discussing the internal affairs of a country before consulting with his advisors and making sure he has a very clear picture of what is going on.  Now things have only gotten worse because the violence against the Church is being ignored by Francis.  vtb

"The USCCB moves actively and swiftly to silence and demonize voices that tell the truth about the Muslim persecution of Christians."

Commentary: In some respects our bishops have become a spin-off of the useless Democratic Party. Their lack of spiritual leadership is a disgrace.  vtb

"Everything that we traditional Catholics believe in and do must have only one end; HOLINESS.  The work of the Holy Spirit is to SANCTIFY US and make us into other Christs."

"There’s a Mother’s Day mystery afoot at St. John Nepomucene Church. For the past 69 years, flowers have shown up at the statue of the Blessed Virgin courtesy of an anonymous donor. Though parishioners enjoy the sight of the lovely flowers, no one has figured out who the donor is."

Commentary: It most likely is more than one donor and a family tradition passed on to the next generation.  vtb

Commentary: Although this was hardly an overwhelming  "victory," as expected, homosexuals no longer only want to just be "respected," they now want to add to their numbers and influence our youth to join in their immoral lifestyles.  Misery loves company.  Satan desires to take as many souls to Hell as possible.  vtb

"Bills to take away freedom from medical professionals will funnel children towards sterilization and serious lifelong harm. So-called conversion therapy bans ironically prevent unhappy children caught in the trans contagion from accepting their natural bodies, and benefit an increasingly profitable gender clinic industry. They act as a Trojan horse for the transgender movement, who, almost unbelievably, are interested in vulnerable children as raw material to manufacture more transgender adults."

Commentary: Everything about these so-called "transgenders" is false, especially the fact that it is not possible to change your DNA.  No matter how you change the outside, the inside remains the same.  vtb


"The logic of much of Europe's religious and political community seems to be that if the elephant in the room is spoken to nicely and made to look cute and adorable, people will not think of it as a threat to their safety."

Commentary: Islam is a very dangerous "religion," if you can call it a religion because it is more of a "cult" that seeks violence against anyone who does not worship the false god that Muslims worship.  It also fulfills the prophecy given in the Bible about the end times:

"They will put you out of the synagogues (churches): yea, the hour cometh, that whosoever killeth you, will think that he doth a service to God."  [John 16:2]

Commentary: The state of Illinois has been run by corrupt Democrats for years.  They are demonized individuals who have no regard for human life or the wishes of voters who oppose abortion.  They are morally and mentally sick people. Obama came out of their ranks which explains his immoral character. vtb

"the Prime Minister of Sweden vowed his country will ‘never go back’ to recent levels of mass immigration after it emerged the terrorist who killed four people in a truck attack was a failed asylum seeker…."

Commentary: Too little, too late.  Common sense was replaced by no sense, and now Sweden is suffering the consequences.  Hopefully, they have truly learned a lesson.  vtb

Commentary: The Saudis have another thing coming if they think Christians are going to let them have their murderous ways without a spiritual fight because with prayer, Christianity always wins

"between 1530 and 1780 there were almost certainly 1 million and quite possibly as many as 1.25 million white, European Christians enslaved by the Muslims of the Barbary Coast."

Commentary: A foretaste of the future should Muslims become the majority in the nations of the West and gain power.  vtb

"The EU Council has moved to distribute hundreds of thousands of refugees across Europe to lighten the burden on Italy and Greece. The Hungarian government has opposed the move from the start and proposes a new mechanism to mass deport migrants instead."

Commentary: If this is what it means to be part of the European "Union," then it may be better to leave it and go solo.  vtb
"The Absence of Conversion: Unlike the Courage apostolate, nowhere in this strategy is repentance or conversion discussed. Instead, the focus is on the overly feminized and therapeutic language objectives of “respect, compassion, and sensitivity.”

Commentary: Another disciple of Pope Francis and his "who am I to judge?" statement.  Homosexual lifestyles will never receive the approval or respect of true Christians.  We can, and should respect the person, but not the grave sins committed by morally depraved homosexuals.  vtb

"When Joseph Ratzinger resigned as Pope Benedict XVI, some of his opponents predicted, unkindly, that his abdication would be the only thing remembered about his life and pontificate. It turns out that it is Benedict’s critics who are now being eclipsed, while Joseph Ratzinger’s reputation continues to rise."

Commentary: Pope Benedict XVI is very much missed by many faithful Catholics who love their faith and choose to obey Church doctrine, rather than following someone who seeks to change it through "back-door" means.  vtb

"The idea of a rose coming from someone's body stretches the most open of minds, although phenomena associated with Saint Padre Pio -- whom Maria had met -- were equally as baffling and difficult to believe."

"If you find yourself, as a new convert, wondering where that beautiful afterglow has gone to take heart and begin. Hook up with other pious, devout Catholics in your parish and get things going—pray, and act, because maybe this is exactly the opportunity parishioners in your orbit where waiting for. Maybe this is exactly what God’s had in mind all along; maybe you’re the catalyst."

Commentary: Not covered in the article is the disappointment many converts are experiencing as they see their idea of a true  Church slowly coming apart due to the lack of holiness taking place from the Vatican on down through the average priest.  vtb

"Huntington’s Disease (HD) is an incurable genetic brain disorder affecting nearly one million people globally. It is among the most common hereditary brain disorders, yet few people know about it and no cure exists.  It begins with personality changes and progresses to loss of body function, eventually robbing the person of the ability to talk, walk, swallow, think and reason."
"It’s time for Huntington’s to be Hidden No More.  We need your help to get the word out about this important issue – because together we can achieve more for families and communities affected by HD.  We encourage you to read, watch and share the videos, photos and graphics below. They have been created specifically for you to use to drive awareness and education about HD and to lift the stigma around it."

Commentary: This is a terrible disease that needs far more research and public attention.  vtb

Commentary: There has always been immorality in both the Democratic and Republican Parties, but sick minded Republicans, although small in number, are much more difficult to endure because they come across as "traitors.".  vtb

"Congress is stuck.  They can either work to advance the agenda that the president ran on and was elected on, or suffer humiliating defeats in next year's midterm elections.  Don't doubt for a second that President Trump will forget who is enemies were when things really mattered.  And expect him to inform his millions of loyal supporters of who those individuals are when the time comes.  In short, Trump can afford to wait."

Commentary:  Waiting is actually not an option.  The 2018 elections are coming up and Trump must show progress on his promises, or the Republican Party could end up a minority Party in the senate.  vtb

"The former education secretary said Catholic social teaching was central to her politics."

"Abortion is killing. Nobody can argue with that. When the fetus is inside the uterus it is alive and when the pregnancy terminated it is dead – that by any definition is killing. … I think abortion is the destruction of something which is potentially irreplaceable, human and of great value, which is the tragedy of abortion."

Commentary: To be totally aware you are either participating in, or approving of murder and still willfully accept your situation, is about the worst moral state you can be in.  vtb

"Conservatives must always ask themselves what they seek to conserve. In 2017, our goal must be to conserve democratic self-government, which is the basis for political freedom. A generation ago, we could focus on the perils of an enlarged government (and the Soviet Union). Now the problem has changed. The greatest threat to freedom is our dissolving society. Voters sense this, which is why they’re tilting in the direction of nationalism, however inarticulately and tentatively. We need to renew solidarity, something that can’t be done by citizens of the world. "

Commentary: Faith in God is the main ingredient of a good society.  Without it, its every man for himself, and that type of selfishness can only lead to a crumbling of both Church and society.  vtb

"Bill Nye offers an all-you-can-eat buffet of dystopia, but this rehash isn’t from yesterday or even yesteryear. More like yester-century."

“Now, as far as the fight coming down the pike in September, we're going to be ready for that fight, and we're going to make sure that President Trump's priorities continue,” Priebus said.

"A large-scale survey of views in Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco and Palestine has reported extensive anti-women views and widespread tolerance of domestic violence.  The three countries and Palestine were selected to be broadly representative and “to reflect the diversity of the region”…

"If the UN honestly wants peace, then it must accept that the modern Jewish state is the tugboat that will pull the whole Middle East into the 21st century.  Rejecting the historic Jewish legitimacy in Jerusalem, is rejecting the quintessence of peace."

Commentary: This is the reaction of a frightened leaders and that is a good sign.  Facing opposition from not only the United States, but also from China, the only recourse North Korea currently has is verbal threats.  They may be foolish, but they are not stupid enough to start a war that they know they would lose. vtb

"Turkey appears determined to flood Europe with migrants either way: with Europe’s permission by means of visa-free travel, or without Europe’s permission, as retribution for failing to provide visa-free travel.  The migrants arriving in Italy are overwhelmingly economic migrants seeking a better life in Europe. Only a very small number appear to be legitimate asylum seekers or refugees fleeing war zones."

Commentary: A vastly changing landscape is coming to Europe.  Are Europeans ready to incorporate immigrants into their lifestyles, or will the immigrants incorporate Europeans into their lifestyles?   vtb

"The Centers for Disease Control is warning of the emergence of a far deadlier tick-related virus than Lyme Disease – one that kills 10 percent of those infected and permanently disables the other 50 percent."

"It makes sense that your sleep position can have an impact on your overall health, right? We’ve all woken up from time to time with a crick in our necks or a weird leg cramp, and it is no fun at all. Spending eight hours on your side or on your back puts pressure on nerves and muscles, and we can feel the effects of a wonky sleep position the next day."


"When telling priests to follow the directives from Buenos Aires, the canonist explained that Pope Francis  complimented those directives, and both the Pope’s letter and the directives can be found on the website of  This website is maintained by independent canonist Marc Balestrieri, and his comments, if provided, will be shared in coming days in this blog page."

Commentary: Francis may have "complimented" Canonical Aid, Inc., but that does not mean they have the right or authority to speak for the Church on every controversial moral issue.  Their presumption reveals a huge flaw in their "mission" as well as a good dose of intellectual pride.  vtb

Pope Benedict XV - His encyclical, "Sacra Propediem."

Commentary: In today's spiritually lukewarm Church we witness almost every Sunday and/or weekday, people coming to church dressed immodestly.  Yet, many of our bishops and priests do nothing about it.  Immodest dressers can receive Holy Communion and the priest during Mass can look directly at them, but say NOTHING.  What a great scandal this is, but how many bishops tell their priests to talk about it at Mass and refuse to give Communion to these people?  What weak cowards they are and what a disgrace to the priesthood they are!   vtb

"I was ashamed when I heard the name," the pontiff told an audience of students at the Vatican.  "A mother gives life and this one gives death, and we call this device a mother. What is going on?" he asked."

Commentary: I agree, but is Pope Francis also "ashamed" when told of the lukewarm state of today's Church and how liberalism, or "the smoke of Satan" has entered the Church?  We know he is not because he has vastly contributed to that "smoke."  vtb

Commentary: These so-called "faith leaders" should take a good look at themselves and be honest enough to admit they don't know what they are talking about.  Trump's ban was written to be only TEMPORARY, and he is not, and never has been, against immigration, as long as its LEGAL.  For "Faith Leaders" to harbor individuals who break the law by coming across our borders ILLEGALLY, makes them an accomplice to a crime, and that is certainly not true "faith" or the action of a true Christian.  vtb
Commentary: Another result of the indifference Obama paid to our interests and our troops in various parts of the world.  Our troops did not like Obama because he never assumed the responsibility of a true Commander-in-Chief and did not give them his support to build up their morale.  He even cut down the number of our troops.  vtb

"In a new book published in Italy Friday, the retired Pontiff says that while he agreed with the conclusions Paul drew in the encyclical Humanae Vitae he had trouble with the argumentation surrounding the prohibition of artificial birth control for Catholics."

"He began his talk, recognizing that "there is a conflict of interpretations," which "responds to the different ecclesiologies". Hence this conflict constitutes "an x-ray of the various ecclesiological tendencies of the Church today." From those who want to "continue in the dynamic of power" to those who intend to continue "between one bank and the other of the river," passing by those who bet on a "normal and simple Church, which accepts what the Pope says."

Commentary: Theologians are filled with "opinions" and "theories" that are not necessarily according to tradition or even current Church teachings. They are in reality, self-appointed "spokesmen" who often claim to speak for the Magisterium of the Church without being given the authority to do so.  Marciano Vidal is one of those people.  However, there is another thing that is disturbing a growing number of people in the Church.  And that is, why does a pope need other people to interpret what he is saying or writing about?  Why doesn't a pope, before he writes or says something, make sure it will be absolutely clear to his "audience"?  And why when he is requested to do so, does he refuse?  Pope Francis is guilty of all these things, and that is one of the great scandals present in today's Church.  The vast majority of Catholics do not want Francis or any other pope to be a leader of confusion, but a leader of solid and true Catholic spirituality.  vtb

"In the letter, Metropolitan Seraphim criticizes Islam and says Muhammed was a "false prophet" and that the Quran is not a "holy" or "sacred" book. He presents examples of where the Quran uses material from the Bible and other religious texts, and he also discusses some of the more controversial aspects of Muhammed's life, including that one of his wives, Aisha, was only nine-years-old when she married the prophet."

Commentary: A courageous and spiritually bold letter to write.  However, it will now become very dangerous for this bishop due to fanatical Muslims who always seek revenge.  He needs and deserves our prayers.  vtb

U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed over the phone Tuesday a potential cease-fire in Syria.  A readout of the conversation released by the White House states the two leaders agreed “the suffering in Syria has gone on far too long.”

Commentary: Trump does what proud Obama would never do.  Trump believes in reconciliation and does not hold grudges.  Obama always tried to get even through mockery or personal attacks.  Thus, the vast difference in the moral qualities of these two men.  vtb

"One of our nation’s two political parties is now completely dedicated to a fundamental evil.  Abortion is even worse than segregation. (Democrats defended that for 100 years). It’s on the level of slavery. To be an active Democrat, going forward, is now to participate in evil. If you raise money for Democratic candidates, give to Democratic causes, or in any way participate in that party’s bid for power. … You are implicated."


“Now, as far as the fight coming down the pike in September, we're going to be ready for that fight, and we're going to make sure that President Trump's priorities continue,” Priebus said.

"By going immediately to Israel from Saudi Arabia, Trump also means to repudiate the fatuous assumptions and failed policies of President Barack Obama."

Commentary: This problem will be addressed by the U.S. when we are asked to participate in the discussions and our assistance is requested.  vtb

"Many pro-life Republicans have praised the bill for blocking federal funding for Planned Parenthood."

Commentary:  This does not make dirty Democrats very happy, but who really cares?  ObamaCare passed without any Republican votes, and if no Democrats vote for the Republican healthcare plan, so be it!  vtb

Commentary: The writer has very strong opinions.  However, so does the average French citizen and it is in them that we must place our trust.  vtb

“The way of all flesh awaits all of us. Even nations die. Look what happened to England,” he told “Savage Nation” listeners.  “There’s no England anymore. That’s because of liberalism. They bent over backwards for liberalism, socialism. They opened their borders, and they thought that the influx of [Muslims] would somehow make them a greater nation.  “That somehow this idea of multiculturalism would save Britain.”

"Asylum applications in Mexico rose steadily in recent years as the flow of people leaving Central America increased. But in 2016, as Trump campaigned on a tough anti-immigration platform, applicants jumped to 8,781, up from just under 3,500 in 2015. Mexico's refugee agency COMAR predicts it could receive more than 22,500 asylum applications in 2017."

"Many observers feel that the controversial ascension of Obama to the White House is no longer newsworthy. The sun has apparently set on Obama’s destructive stewardship of the country. He must be allowed to fade into political irrelevance while the country tackles without distraction the enormous problems that confront it. “There’s a lot of work to do,” writes one commentator to a recently posted article of mine, “Let’s start by consigning Obama to the dustbin of history, and repeat his name no more.”

"I know some of my fellow evangelicals are a bit uneasy because they don't believe the executive order goes far enough—but be patient. This is the first of several steps to protect religious liberty.  This president has demonstrated he is a friend to people of faith—and at the end of the day—I have no doubt he will honor his word. Just have faith."

"U.S. President Donald Trump held his first-face-to-face meeting with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on Thursday, and declared that they "get along great," following an acrimonious phone call in January that strained ties between the two allies.  "They said we had a rough phone call. We didn't really have a rough phone call," Trump said in dinner remarks. "It got a little bit testy. But that's okay."

"Mária Schmidt is a Hungarian historian and university lecturer. In the following essay she outlines the trajectory of George Soros’ career and describes his ongoing nefarious schemes with great lucidity. Her account is literally horripilating: it made my skin crawl to read what this vile man has unleashed upon the world. This “globalized” world.

"In the movie Gettysburg, amidst the lines of battle and artillery fire, there is a brief scene of a priest, his back to the camera, offering absolution to a vast field of kneeling Catholic soldiers. On the Gettysburg battlefield today, a statue honors this priest, Father William Corby, CSC, a Holy Cross priest whose name is familiar to the students and graduates of the University of Notre Dame, from whence he departed to serve his country, torn apart by civil war."

"House lawmakers passed new sanctions legislation on Thursday designed to undercut North Korea’s economy by cracking down on the network of banks and industries that help it avoid western sanctions.  “If we shut down their economy, they can’t move forward with their [nuclear weapons program] program,” House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Ed Royce, R-Calif., said.."

“A string of absurd and reckless remarks are now heard from China every day only to render the present bad situation tenser.”  “China had better ponder over the grave consequences to be entailed by its reckless act of chopping down the pillar of the DPRK-China relations.”

"The following is a list of most Army enlisted and officer jobs, with short descriptions."

Commentary: Obama was without question, the worst President of the United States.  vtb

"Besides being Gospel, Purgatory attracts people to the Church, too. It supplies a need we all feel, at least when we’re at our best. The Protestant C. S. Lewis saw this at the very end of his life. In his last book, Letters to Malcolm, he says that “Our souls demand Purgatory.”

"Demons have been seen by seers as apes or monkey-like, hopping as if a kangaroo, or resembling snakes and insects. Satan has appeared to seers as a tremendously handsome man promising success here on earth in “love and life” if they will follow him instead of her — the dreaded “her” being Mary. Yet, he flees, this handsome con artist, as soon as Mary reappears."


"The election of a liberal Jesuit to the papacy thrilled Democrats in the United States, whose unholy alliance with the Catholic left goes back many decades. Barack Obama, one of the pope’s most prominent supporters, has long been a beneficiary of that alliance. The faculty at Jesuit Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., ranked as one of the top donors to his campaign.  In a grim irony, Obama, whose presidency substantially eroded religious freedom in America, rose to power not in spite of the Catholic Church but because of it. The archdiocese of Chicago helped bankroll his radicalism in the 1980s. As he (Obama) recounts in his memoirs, he began his work as a community organizer in the rectory rooms of Holy Rosary parish on Chicago’s South Side. The Alinskyite organization for which he worked — the Developing Communities Project — received tens of thousands of dollars from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development."

Commentary: A sad reminder that against tradition, a pope has chosen to associate and find agreement with evil men rather than truly holy men.  vtb

"A number of the “Founding Fathers,” starting with George Washington himself, belonged to Masonic lodges (though they were also Christian). The same has been true of presidents since that time. Of the forty-five, fourteen (and by one count fifteen) have been Masons. That’s one-third [list here]."

"There is something grimly amusing about watching someone explain how essential killing babies is to "the economy." Bryce Covert thinks that we are all members of a species called Homo economicus. For her the default state of human activity is contribution to the economy."

"In these circumstances the only indispensable act of the Pope consists in unambiguously confirming the Divine truth of the indissolubility of marriage not only regarding doctrine, but also regarding the practice, as it did Jesus Christ and according to His example all of His Vicars on earth, the Roman Pontiffs. The central task of a Pope is precisely this: to confirm his brethren in the faith. This task is not optional, but commanded by Christ Himself (cf. Lc 23, 32).

Commentary: Will Francis listen to Bishop Schneider?  It is very doubtful. Francis is firmly set in his ways and accepts no correction from any of his cardinal or bishop brothers.  This is either because he is a spirituality misguided man or a very proud man, neither of which is good for the Church. vtb

"Pope Francis’ Exhortation Amoris Laetitia is not only dividing the Church, but more alarmingly, it is quietly attempting to change Catholic doctrine by means of an “incremental change of praxis,” said two Catholic scholars at an international conference in Rome last week."

"The document is indirect. It says things in an indirect way, but clearly, so the reader gets very clearly the message...What is implied in the whole discourse is very clear and really runs against very important dogmatic articles of the faith," he said.

“I hope that Catholics in the diocese will understand that it would be sinful to receive a fake sacrament from a woman priest and that includes attending a fake Mass,” said David Hains, spokesperson for the Catholic Diocese of Charlotte."

"The Catholic Archdiocese of Denver will only allow biological males and leaders who adhere to the Catholic Church's moral teachings to participate in its parishes' Boy Scouts troops.  Denver Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila announced the policy in an April 20 column. He blasted the Boy Scouts of America for admitting "girls who struggle with gender dysphoria and are living as though they are boys."

"This award will be noted with shame and embarrassment when the history of the Indiana Democratic Party is written. Sadly, however, the award is consistent with the Democratic National Committee’s new mantra of demanding that all Democrats support abortion."

Commentary: You cannot be a true Catholic and approve of abortion.  However, you can be a true hypocrite and claim to be a "Catholic."  vtb

"Teresa Manning, a law professor with a pro-life background who has questioned the effectiveness of contraception, was named deputy assistant secretary in the Office of Population Affairs of the Health and Human Services Department (HHS)."

"A new maternity center to be built on the St. Vincent’s University Hospital campus and owned by Catholic nuns will do abortions to the extent these are permitted by Irish law. 
Commentary: This sounds very confusing.  How can The Sisters of Charity approve of this?  It must be due to conforming to a law.  Hopefully, they can come to a morally acceptable agreement.  vtb

"The “general climate” of devoutness in Islam (which the BBC tries to hide by calling “religious conservatism”) is what subjugates and brutalizes women all over the Middle East. If you have a religion that sanctions wife-beating, polygamy, the reduction of a woman’s inheritance rights, the reduction of the value of a woman’s testimony, honor killing, female genital mutilation, and the covering of women in the cloth coffins of the burqa and niqab, you’re going to get men who think women are unequal to them. This isn’t rocket science. It’s Islam."

"Down through the ages, St Francis and the Custody have faced both hostility and openness from local Muslim rulers. Today’s murderous jihadism is something new, a lethal threat that is driving Christians out of their ancient biblical lands. Eight hundred years later, the Franciscans determination to stay and bear witness is needed again."

"May 2, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – President Trump will sign an executive order on Thursday protecting the religious liberty of the Little Sisters of the Poor and ordinary Americans who don't subscribe to gender ideology or believe in same-sex "marriage..."

"The point at the end is good, this is the last action with the 2017 budget, the discussion about the 2018 budget starts today."

Commentary: Note how the devious democrats who control the press are always critical of Trump, but how effective Trump's staff is in countering their lies and distortions.  The bottom line is the balance of the 2017 budget is NOT a victory for the Democrats, but is in fact, a victory for the Republicans.  vtb


"Pope Francis reaffirmed the disputed settlement of refugee camps with concentration camps. "This was not a lapsus linguae, (slip of the tongue) there are refugee camps, which are the right (rightfully) concentration camps," he said on Saturday on the return flight from Cairo to Rome. Some are in Italy, others elsewhere" - not in Germany"...Some Jewish associations had criticized the Pope's "concentration camp" (remark).

Commentary: Refuge camps are definitely not the equivalent of a "Nazi concentration camp."  It may prove to be very offensive to some Jews for the Pope to make this comparison, and then to refuse to correct himself.  Francis also does not tell the truth when he claims he does not interfere with the political affairs of countries.  His rejection of the border wall and saying Trump was not a "Christian" are only two examples of his interference and his personal attacks against a political leader that he justifies as moral observations.  We are reminded that Francis was not directly critical of Obama although Obama was in favor of the killing of the unborn through abortions and homosexual marriage.  vtb

"As a good Jesuit, Jorge Mario Bergoglio instinctively goes along with the signs of the times. He is not even trying to stem the growing diversification within the Church. On the contrary, he is encouraging it.  He is not responding to the cardinals who submit “doubts” to him and ask him to bring clarity.  He is giving free rein to even the most reckless opinions, like those of the new general of the Jesuits, the Venezuelan Arturo Sosa Abascal, according to whom it is not possible to know what Jesus really said “because there were no recorders.”

Commentary: Pope Francis does not appear to be a good pope.  His reckless manner of leading the Church is not winning him any friends that know doctrine and truly love the Church.  But a day of "reckoning" before Almighty God will come for this liberal, misguided pope as it will for each of us.  vtb

"Bullish Trump renews his battle with the 'incompetent' media as he mocks 'boring' White House Correspondents' Dinner he snubbed and boasts that his First 100 Days rally attracted 'much better people' - "Elite reporters, Trump claimed, 'would love to be with us' but were 'trapped at the dinner, which will be very, very boring' - He said the political media 'deserves a very, very big, fat fat failing grade' for its coverage of his first 100 days - Vice President Mike Pence warmed up the crowd and blamed 'left-wing activists and their willing allies in the media' for 'ignoring the facts and spreading that fake news' - Trump blasted Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and said if Democrats 'knew what the hell they were doing' they would approve funding for his border wall."

"In its statement, the White House suggested that Mr. Trump was eager to mend relations. The president’s invitation, it said, was aimed at discussing “the importance of the United States-Philippine alliance, which is now headed in a very positive direction.”

“With hope in our souls and patriotism in our hearts, I say these words tonight on 100 days of devotion, hard work, and love for our great country.”

Commentary: Russia attempted to present an superior moral image under the Obama administration which was not hard to do since Obama was, and is so corrupt, but Trump is a new man since being elected President and he is building a far greater moral image than Putin ever imaged.  vtb

Commentary: A beautiful glow that reflects the presence of the Holy Spirit shines through the smile of this daughter of the Lord.  vtb

"Emily — believed to be the ONLY person in the world with her particular kind of neuroblastoma — has been close to death several times, but keeps fighting back.  She says: “I don’t think I would change anything about me — having cancer has made me who I am.  “I don’t think I would be the same person if I hadn’t gone through everything I have.  “It’s been seven years of my life and I have never been told I am going to be completely better and live until I am 80.”

"There are other Catholics on tour, but pro tennis isn’t known for being big on religion, so seeing a classy guy like Tim is reassuring. I try to be respectful of others and not yell or throw my racket, so the way Tim conducts himself reminds me of how to act."

"you cannot judge a religion’s efficacy, whether good or bad, by its exceptional personalities, but only by the behavior of those masses who are conglutinated by its tenets. In this sense and from this perspective, Islam is not merely insalubrious for mankind, but even worse, and because of this same insalubrious nature, it is a grand deception that has hoodwinked the Western world in such a way that we bend over backward in abject humility just to accommodate this intolerant religion “in abstraction from its followers, or even from its various types of followers.”

Commentary: The writer uses lots of fancy words, but an overall review of the article should clear things up for readers.  vtb

"The US has sent a group of US Marines armed with eight-wheeled Stryker armored carriers to northern Syria as a buffer between Syrian Kurds and Turkish forces, after Turkish air strikes killed 20 members of the US-backed Kurdish YPG (People’s Protection Units) militia, injured 18 and destroyed the local Kurdish command headquarters. Clashes broke out between Turkish and Kurdish forces after the air strikes."

Commentary: Turkey should never have been allowed to become a member of NATO because its leaders cannot be trusted.  vtb

"President Xi Jinping has tightened the state's grip on independent civil society since 2012, citing threats to national security and stability.  Li Heping, a civil rights lawyer who has previously defended practitioners of the banned Falun Gong spiritual movement, was detained along with dozens of activists and lawyers in mid-2015 during a crackdown on dissent."

Commentary: The lawyer was given a 3 year sentence that was suspended for 4 years which means on the condition that the defendant not commit any "crimes" during the next 4 years..   vtb

"A government statement said the police had successfully stopped 'illegal religious activity.'

Commentary: China presents two faces to the world community. One of peaceful coexistence, and another of silent persecution and brutality towards its own people.  vtb

" the senior U.S. Navy officer overseeing military operations in the Pacific said the crisis with North Korea is at the worst point he's ever seen, but he declined to compare the situation to the Cuban missile crisis decades ago."

"Romanticism was (is) anti-reason, obsessed with passion – where it dominates in the Church all those courses in logic for clergy are wasted. “Virtue” was what the French revolutionaries imagined had existed in ancient Rome, which is to say mostly Stoicism. This was not the Catholic understanding of virtue. In fact, the Revolution worked mightily to destroy the Church, slaughtering clergy, religious, and laity."

"My black brother called me from Baltimore feeling frustrated and alone. He is surrounded by blacks, including his own household, who believe everything they are told by fake news media. No amount of data, logic, or truth seems to penetrate their wall of brain-dead loyalty to the Democrat Party and worship of Obama. My brother said that even at his all-black church every sermon includes digs against Trump."

Commentary: Many Blacks are far more racist than Whites.  Blacks commit far more crimes than any other race in the US and are very difficult to reason with.  However, there are many good Blacks that are a credit to their race and would not agree to have someone murder their unborn child or personally commit a crime, and these are the Blacks that deserve our respect.  Unfortunately, the rest appear to be beyond learning the truth.  vtb

"Once you abandon belief in rationality, all you are left with is force and violence."

Commentary: A truer statement would be: "once you abandon your faith."   vtb

"a self-described “American Black” woman (she appears, after the ranting antifa woman, about 50 seconds into the clip) responding to the criticism toward Donald Trump by passionately pointing out the problems FOR BLACK AMERICAN CITIZENS that were completely exacerbated during the Obama presidency, and the needs of Black Americans that were wholly ignored during his reign."

Commentary: Trump has a good military strategy.  He keeps the enemy guessing as to his next move rather than telling him exactly what he is going to do, as Obama did.  vtb

"Religions devolve into cults when they set themselves in opposition to the entire world outside their confines, and when they insist that their members hold unique insights and virtues, and so have a duty to shun and denigrate the “gentiles” (everyone else).  Cult leaders understand that exposure to outsiders leads to a diminishment of commitment, and a decline of their own power."

"The left’s “inimitable” War on Poverty destroyed the Black family in our country, creating as it did a greater than 70% rate of black children born out of wedlock.  And now, the left’s demonic War on Women has turned females into the new Ugly Americans.  The notion that "anatomy is destiny" is anathema to a left whose culture wars and Woodstock generation began the death march of the American family.  And the Ugly American is our harsh American Woman liberated from herself, from her own soul."

"Watching several minutes of CNN’s punditry coverage of President Trump’s Harrisburg rally is exceptionally interesting from the perspective of watching what happens when full-throated liberal media ideology is confronted by a political opponent inoculated from battered politician syndrome.  The media cries foul."

Commentary: The media will often site the 1st Amendment when Trump attacks their credibility.  However, they do not confess that they are bullies and slandering or ridiculing the President is wrong.  This makes them even more despised by those who know, and appreciate dignity.  vtb

Commentary: Great series of videos on the new health care bill, North Korea and other issues.  vtb

(Democratic) Senator Chuck Schumer on MSNBC (via ZeroHedge): “We’re no longer fact-based. The founding fathers created a country based on fact. We don’t have a fact base. If Breitbart News and the New York Times are regarded with equal credibility, you worry about this democracy.”  First of all, in Schumer’s opening sentence, who is this “we”? There is an implication that the “we” is somehow monolithic and centralized. But people have been in disagreement about facts and what they mean since the dawn of time. People have rejected centralized sources of facts, from kings and queens and priests, to newspapers and television news."

Commentary: Another nut-case.  Mr. Schumer and the Democrats have no fresh ideas.  They simply exist to stop Trump and in the process confirm the fact they are not patriotic and could care less about what is good for our country.  vtb

"The Netherlands recently reported that there were 6091 reported assisted deaths in 2016 representing 4% of all deaths. Based on the current number of assisted deaths, it is possible that Canada will surpass the Netherlands and Belgium."

Commentary: Welcoming godless government leaders and atheistic judges confirms it is the goal of the people of Canada to slide into Hell.  vtb

"Female genital mutilation is gratuitous violence against girls and women, and is a violation of human rights; failing to report it not only ensures its continuance but also perpetuates a two-tier legal system in America: one in which Islamic Sharia is permitted and another under the rule of secular law."

"And souls working together in a mass rejection of God can move mountains. They can turn them into molehills. They can take a great civilization … and reduce its cities to rubble. They can shatter the most basic unit of social order, the family, into shards of self-seeking, adolescent adults and neglected, untutored children. Then the godless State can remake them in its image, starting with pre-school, right up through their B.A.s in Gender Studies from Jesuit universities."

"The researchers then checked to see if these imbalances also characterized the subset of patients in the study who had irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), an intestinal disorder that is common in people with chronic fatigue syndrome. Results showed that patients did indeed have different patterns of gut bacteria disturbances depending on whether they had only chronic fatigue syndrome or both chronic fatigue syndrome and IBS."

"If you listen to mainstream media for more than 30 seconds, you would think President Trump is in a world of his own as the entire nation turns its back on him. However, that would be ‘fake‘ news as WaPo reports, in fact, the Democratic Party is viewed as more out of touch than either Trump or the party’s political opponents."

Commentary: The results of this poll are not surprising.  Most Americans are able to see through the false image Democrats and their allies in the press try to present to the general public.   vtb

"In homosexuality, I thought I could find the perfect man – someone who was masculine and powerful, but unquestionably accepting and compassionate.  I never found my gay god. Because everyone else around me was looking for precisely the same thing. But the more I expected and the more I hoped, the increasingly desperate I became."

Commentary: A very touching story of conversion.   vtb


"North Korea test-fires ballistic missile - Trump says North Korea 'disrespected the wishes of China' - Reports Pyongyang saying war 'imminent' - North Korea: attempts to get rid of nuclear weapons (is a) 'wild dream' - North Korea could develop a missile capable of reaching the US warns Homeland Security Secretary"

"As President Donald Trump convenes an unusual national security meeting on North Korea this week at the White House with the full Senate, Register correspondent Victor Gaetan explores how two priests, a Korean-American professor and a former high-level North Korean official struggled in intersecting ways to promote dialogue between the United States and North Korea."

"She was known for her great devotion to caring for the sick — she was born during the time of the great plague in Europe; she would go into homes and hospitals and care for others that no-one else would.  She would wash their hideous wounds and bandage them.  When they died, Catherine would bury them with her own hands."

"In a rare rebuke to a NATO ally, the U.S. military charged that Turkish airstrikes against a valued U.S.-backed Kurdish militia in northern Syria came with little warning and could have endangered American advisers."

"In a speech at times blunt and other times thick with imagery, the pope said that better cooperation by the two religions could lead to a new generation refreshing an environment poisoned by the one before it. “Young people, like well-planted trees, can be firmly rooted in the soil of history,” he said, “and growing heavenward in one another’s company, can daily turn the polluted air of hatred into the oxygen of fraternity.”

"U.S. officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the missile was probably a medium-range weapon known as a KN-17 and appears to have broken up within minutes of taking off."

"April 28, 2017.  The Administration is aware of the most recent North Korean missile test.  The President has been briefed."

“We are sending an armada.”  Pres. Donald J. Trump’s declaration during a television interview on the Fox Business Channel signaled the deployment of Carrier Strike Group One to the Korean Peninsula in response to North Korea’s bellicose rhetoric and upcoming missile test. The Navy canceled a series of port calls for the strike group earlier this month and diverted the ships to the Korean Peninsula in a show of force against the hermit kingdom.  But what’s in the armada?"

"Rather than accept electoral defeat, the mainstream of the Democratic Party now believes in “resisting” -- resisting anything the party in power enacts into law, does, wants to do, or even wants to think.  Their new goal is to disrupt, obfuscate, destroy, and neuter their opposition."

Commentary: Acts of treason by Democrats will not deter the objectives of President Trump.  Democrats are fighting a losing cause and making fools of themselves.   vtb

"Melania dedicated the new Bunny Mellon Healing garden at the Children's National Medical Center Friday - The First Lady was pictured spending time in the garden with young patients following Friday's ceremony - The new garden allows patients to spend time outside while enjoying views of the Washington Monument - It is dedicated to all of the prior first ladies and named for an American horticulturist and gardener."

"At this point, there was some unrest in the audience. There was nobooing or heckling at all, however. This makes it even more surprising that US media are painting an entirely different picture of Ivanka’s appearance in Berlin. The murmuring
