HEAVEN OR THE EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT OF HELL, THE CHOICE IS OURS - Medjugorje:  ”Too many souls will go to Hell by choice!” 




"From translation of a copy of a personal letter written by Padre Pio addressed to the Commission of Heroldsbach appointed by the Vatican that testifies to the truth and reality of these revelations on the Three Days of Darkness given by Our Lord to Padre Pio, a Capuchin priest who bore the stigmata."

"When an identical prophecy has been made by widely separated people in time and space, when this particular prophecy was accompanied by other predictions which have already come to pass, and when the holiness of the mystics in question has been recognized by the Church, we would be foolish indeed not to believe that the prophecy must come to pass. Such is the case concerning the Three Days of Darkness."

COMMENTARY - AUGUST 11, 2019: The vast majority of U.S. Bishops have BLOOD on their hands.  They (including Pope Francis) will attack President Trump, but will not directly accuse the Democrat Party of 1st Degree Murder for their approval of the killing of human beings up to, and even after birth.  They often talk about the evil of abortion, but only a few discuss the reason it is so common and why you should not vote for Democrats who approve of it.  

For many Catholic Republicans our bishops have become an Arm of the Democrat Party, and are more political than spiritual leaders.  Their refusal to excommunicate so-called "Catholic" politicians who promote and approve of abortion is a great scandal.  By our bishops actions, they confirm that social issues are more important than the murder of defenseless babies!  What a disgrace they are to today's Catholic Church and what a severe judgement they shall receive from the Lord when they face Him after their time on this earth is up!

Vincent T. Bemowski, )

"Behold I command thee, take courage and be strong.  Fear not and be not dismayed because the Lord thy God is with thee in all things,  wheresoever thou shalt go."
Josue (Joshua) 1:9)

BRINGING HOPE TO HER CHILDREN - Assumption feast invites people to look to heaven with hope, pope says - 

"ROME - Mary’s assumption into heaven calls people to put aside all those insignificant, mundane and petty concerns competing for their attention and instead be drawn to God and his greatness, Pope Francis said."

VERY GOOD NEWS - This Good News for Christianity in America May Surprise You - 

"Time for a reality check, says Stanton. In fact, the annual church closure rate in America is about 1 percent — far lower than the rate for any other organizational category. As for the exploding number of “nones,” it’s almost entirely due to changes in the way researchers ask questions. The “nones” in today’s surveys, include the same sort of people who in yesterday’s surveys listed their affiliation as the church they attended a year ago last Christmas. “This change marks a decrease only in nominal affiliation, not an increase in irreligion,” says social scientist Rodney Stark, quoted by Stanton."

GREAT CATCH! - Coast Guard cutter's crew makes massive 4,600-pound cocaine bust, 2nd in 5 days - 

"The drugs were confiscated July 31 from a "low-profile go-fast" vessel in international waters of the Eastern Pacific Ocean, the Coast Guard announced Thursday.  The bust came just days after the July 26 seizure of more than 2,100 pounds of cocaine from a different boat, which was the pre-commissioned cutter's first seizure since leaving its Mississippi shipyard in June, the branch noted."

NO EVIDENCE - There Is No Evidence of an 'Epidemic of Mass Shootings' - 

"Northeastern University criminologist James Alan Fox, the leading researcher on the topic for the past 35 years, tells Reason, "There is no evidence that we are in the midst of an epidemic of mass shootings." The number of incidents and casualties are simply too small to make such claims and, he stresses, the media coverage of shootings often ends up creating a false sense that gun violence—which is at or near historic lows—is ubiquitous and growing."

YES! - We are building the wall! - 
White House on Twitter


SEEKING MORE SECURITY- Trump has expressed serious interest in buying Greenland: report - 

"A new report from the Wall Street Journal reveals that Trump has asked his advisers whether the U.S. can acquire Greenland, an autonomous Danish territory, during "meetings, dinners, and passing conversations" because of Greenland's "abundant resources and geopolitical importance," according to White House sources.

HATE MOTIVATED BY HATEFUL DEMOCRATS - ICE offices, workers hit by wave of violence and threats: ‘We know where all your children live’ - 

"One protester threatened the family of GEO Group’s former general counsel, John Bulfin.  “We know where all your children live throughout the country … John Bulfin you have kids in [bleeped out], you have kids in [bleeped out],” the protester yelled. “We know everything about you and you won’t just be seeing us here.”

MORE LIES FROM DEMOCRATS IN THE PRESS - PolitiFact Should Have the Courage to Tell the Truth -

"At issue were blatant lies from two leading Democratic candidates about the police shooting of Michael Brown five years ago. Here’s what Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris tweeted:"

NEGATIVE PARENTAL INFLUENCE - Girl, 9, sues renowned Berlin boys choir over gender bias - 

"A 9-year-old girl is suing a centuries-old Berlin boys choir, arguing that her bid to join was only rejected because of her gender, in a case that has sparked debate over equal rights versus artistic freedom.  The State and Cathedral Choir is one of the most renowned boys' choirs in Germany, founded in 1465 by Fredrick II of Brandenburg. Over its 554 years, it has never admitted any girls."

REVEALING THE TRUTH -Rarely has a Vatican official spoken so bluntly on abuse - 

"Titled “Clergy Accountability and the Media’s Response”, the talk Mgr Kennedy gave was part personal reminiscence, part humanizing presentation of the CDF’s work, and part cri de coeur. It was revealing in almost every line of its seventeen pages, and deserves to be counted among the most significant public interventions by churchmen on the subject of the worldwide crisis and the Vatican’s response to it."

A MAN OF GOD - Cardinal Sarah: A prophet of our times - 

"In recent years Cardinal Sarah has shifted towards a more prophetic mode, warning us in a series of books and speeches that an apostasy is underway in many parts of the world, and in some parts of the Church. There is something of Elijah – speaking for the faith in a time of infidelity – in that too. He shocked many with his address at the 2015 synod on the family, when he spoke of “Beasts of the Apocalypse” in regard to Western decadence and jihadist extremism. Cardinal Sarah never went to the finishing school where many bishops learn how to speak without ever giving offence."

GOOD MOVE - Israel blocks Omar, Tlaib from entering country amid pressure from Trump - 

"Omar and Tlaib were among 17 members of Congress who voted against a resolution condemning the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement in July. This was after Omar introduced a resolution of her own that encouraged the use of boycotts as a political tool, and told Al-Monitor that "it is an opportunity for us to explain why it is we support a nonviolent movement, which is the BDS movement."

VERY SAD - British teen who went missing in Malaysia died of starvation and stress, police say - 

"A 15-year-old London girl whose naked body was found in the woods after she mysteriously disappeared from a nature resort in Malaysia earlier this month died due to intestinal bleeding brought on by starvation and stress, officials said Wednesday.  Nora Anne Quoirin arrived at the Dusun eco-resort, a small resort located in a durian orchard next to a forest reserve 39 miles south of Kuala Lumpur, on Aug. 3 for what was supposed to be a two-week vacation with her family. Her family reported her missing the following day."

ANIMALS ON THE LOOSE - Hannity: Crowd's treatment of Philly police officers 'beyond repulsive'; Dems 'politicize' shooting - 

"Fox News' Sean Hannity honored the Philadelphia police officers caught up in Wednesday's shootout, saying they "deserved better" after video showed them being taunted during the incident where six police officers were shot.  "These officers saving countless lives putting themselves in harm's way. And there are people that are taunting them, pelting them with objects. Treating them this way is beyond repulsive," Hannity said Thursday on his television show. They deserve better."

BIASED GOOGLE? - GOOGLE INSIDER: ‘SOMETHING DARK AND NEFARIOUS GOING ON’ - 

"That June 24 report included undercover footage of a Google executive referencing how the tech giant is necessary for "preventing the next Trump situation."  After leaking anonymously, Vorhies claims, he received a letter from Google in which the company said it knew what he had done. The letter included six demands, ranging from "cease and desist" to handing over his personal data.

DANGEROUS CLIMB - Mount Everest climbers to face new rules after deadly season - 

"Eleven people died this year on Mount Everest -- including 9 in Nepal -- likely due to altitude sickness, which is caused by low amounts of oxygen at high elevation and can lead to headaches, vomiting, shortness of breath and mental confusion. Nepal had issued permits to 381 people to climb the 29,035-foot Everest summit in 2019, which the government said was the greatest number ever."

HUGE FIRE - Vatican ‘struggling to put out fire’ of public scandal over JPII Institute purge - 

"In a new letter published by respected Italian journalist, Aldo Maria Valli, an informed source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the “violent upheaval in the teaching staff” and “drastic change in the curriculum and orientation of academic research” has sent “shockwaves” through the Church, and generated a reaction that is “unprecedented in the pontificate of Pope Francis, both in intensity and in duration.”

OUCH! - Newly discovered organ may be lurking under your skin - 

"Dubbed the nociceptive glio-neural complex, this structure is not quite like the typical picture of a complex organ like the heart or the spleen. Instead, it’s a simple organ made up of a network of cells called glial cells, which are already known to surround and support the body’s nerve cells. In this case, the glial cells form a mesh-like structure between the skin’s outer and inner layers, with filament-like protrusions that extend into the skin’s outer layer. (Also find out about a type of simple organ recently found in humans, called the interstitium.

DESERVES TO BE EXPOSED - Canada's PM Trudeau found guilty by ethics commissioner - 

"Canada's ethics commissioner said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau improperly pressured a former attorney general to halt the criminal prosecution of a company, a development that could imperil his chances for re-election.  The report comes just before the official start of campaigning for the October 21 general election and it threatens to bring to light once again a scandal that rocked the government earlier this year, causing a drop in poll ratings that had since abated."

LEAVING A CROWDED FIELD OF DEVILS - Hickenlooper ends White House bid, hints at possible Senate run in Colorado - 

"Hickenlooper's announcement also came as he’s been facing pressure from national Democrats this summer to end his presidential campaign and jump into Colorado’s crowded Democratic U.S. Senate primary for the chance to face off next year against first-term GOP Sen. Cory Gardner, who faces a challenging re-election."

CAUTION! - Latin America - Banana-targeting fungus may cause 'apocalyptic scenario' for the fruit - 

"The fungus, a strain of Fusarium oxysporum, is known as Tropical Race 4, the New York Post reports. The Colombian Agricultural Institute has confirmed that a strain of TP4 was found. This caused the government to declare a national state of emergency.  Farmers were ordered to destroy crops in the area where the fungus was discovered and to quarantine plantations. While these extreme measures have been taken, it unfortunately may not be enough to stop the spread of the banana-killing fungus."

NO JOKE - UK woman suffers facial burns after eggs 'exploded' in her face: 'It felt like my skin was being ripped off' - 

"Bethany Rosser, 22, of Redditch, Worcestershire, told the UK-based outlet SWNS she Googled instructions on how to make hard-boiled eggs in the microwave without causing them to explode. She claims she came across an article from Delish, a popular recipe site.  "On that page, it said that you could microwave the eggs as long as you add salt to the eggs in the water, to prevent them from bursting. So, of course, I added salt,” she said.  Rosser said she cooked the eggs for six minutes — two minutes less than the maximum time Delish allegedly recommended in its recipe — before removing them from the microwave. When she took them out, she claims the shelled eggs “burst all of a sudden.”

ANOTHER PIT BULL KILLING & NO COMPASSION- Texas teen mauled by 3 pit bulls in backyard has died, police say - 

"Lorenzo won’t face any charges since the dogs were in his fenced-in backyard, the station reported.  He told WFAA-TV that the three pit bulls, Bella, Bruce and Little Bit, were only protecting their home and the teen shouldn’t have been in the backyard in the first place."

FED OK's DANGEROUS DOGS ON PLANES - Delta ban on pit bulls as support animals is rejected as feds clarify rules for all airlines - 

"Having some dog bites occur aboard its planes doesn’t give Delta Air Lines the OK to ban a specific breed, the federal government determined Thursday.  Delta enacted a ban against “pit bull type dogs” as support animals last year following several onboard incidents. In one case, a passenger was left with a bloody face after another passenger’s dog attacked him."

DANGEROUS DOGS - Most Dangerous Dog Breeds In The World - 

"There are dog breeds out there that are known to be quite more aggressive than others. Sure, a dog can be trained to be aggressive, but some breeds are known to be inherently aggressive. This is a topic that has known to become a heated debate between pet owners all over. A lot of people would claim that even the most ‘dangerous’ breed makes the best pet. However, some breeds are known to be more aggressive than others when taking breeding history into account."

HOPING THEY WILL LISTEN - Illinois Is the Canary In The Pension Coal Mine - 

"In 1990, Illinois implemented a guaranteed 3 percent compounding cost of living adjustment. So a person's pension goes up by 3 percent every year regardless of how much inflation there is in the economy. It basically doubles the size of somebody's pension over the course of 25 years."

GOOD CALL - Trump calls for 'intelligent background checks' in response to mass shootings - 

"The president also said he had a "great talk" with both Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) about gun laws.  "I think with a lot of success that we have, I think I have a greater influence now over the Senate and over the House," he said. "I think we can get something really good done. I think we can have some meaningful background checks."

AN INSIDE LOOK AT THE CONDUCT OF POPE FRANCIS - Swiss Guard, ex-security for Pope Francis, visits Alabama - 

"The Swiss Guard defended Rome against a military attack in the Sack of Rome in 1527, allowing Pope Clement VII to flee during the War of the League of Cognac.  Roch said he had frequent encounters with Pope Francis, often standing guard just outside the door of his personal quarters.  “We feel privileged to have that duty,” Roch said. “We have a lot of job satisfaction. It strengthens our faith.”

SICK MINDED DEMOCRATS - Trump campaign blasts Dem rep for trying to name and shame donors: ‘Delete & apologize’ - 

"The Trump campaign on Tuesday blasted Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro, the brother and campaign chairman of 2020 presidential hopeful Julian Castro, for publicly posting a list of prominent Texas Trump donors’ names and employers -- accusing him of "targeting" private citizens and demanding he delete it.  The campaign told Fox News they reported Castro’s tweet to Twitter, arguing it violates the platform’s abusive behavior provision stating users cannot “engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so.”  “How low have Dems sunk?” Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh tweeted. “This is Joaquin Castro, Congressman & chair of his brother’s campaign. Naming private citizens & their employers, targeting them for their political views and exercising 1st Amendment rights.”

BAD EFFECT ON THE BRAIN - Major surgery doubles risk of substantial brain decline, study suggests - 

"A longitudinal study of more than 7,000 British civil servants who were tested between 1997 and 2016 found those who underwent major operations were twice as likely to suffer substantial cognitive decline compared to those who never needed surgery."
 
DARWIN DEAD WRONG. ALMIGHTY GOD IS OUR CREATOR- RENOWNED YALE PROFESSOR QUITS DARWIN - 

"In his seminal work The Origin of Species (1859), Darwin proposed that all life forms have descended from a common ancestor, suggesting that over time, random variation coupled with natural selection gives rise to entirely new species.  But, Gelernter wrote, "The origin of species is exactly what Darwin cannot explain."  "Darwin successfully explained the small adjustments by which an organism adapts to local circumstances: changes to fur density or wing style or beak shape," he noted. "Yet there are many reasons to doubt whether he can answer the hard questions and explain the big picture — not the fine-tuning of existing species but the emergence of new ones."

GOOD OPTION - McConnell suggests Senate could look at assault weapons ban, background checks - 

He said the two talked about various proposals that will be “front and center” in Senate discussions, including so-called red flag warning legislation that would keep guns from people deemed a threat by their friends and family members, as well as expanding background checks.  “There’s a lot of support for that,” McConnell said, referring to legislation championed by Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pennsylvania, and Sen. Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia, who are hoping to revive legislation that would extend background checks for nearly all gun sales. A similar effort died in the Senate in 2013.


"Cdl. Burke spoke out against nominally Catholic leaders who support legalized abortion and homosexual "marriage."  The cardinal told his interviewer that pro-abortion Catholic politicians like Joe Biden should not receive Holy Communion at Mass.  "They may not present themselves to receive Holy Communion, because they're not in communion with Christ," he explained.

MUST OBEY OUR LAWS - Trump Discusses Immigration & Detention Facilities - 

"If people come into our country illegally, they're going out." 

WHAT ARE THE ODDS - As Debate Cut-Off Looms – Dems Drop Like Flies - 

"President Trump is sitting on 47% approval, the exact same place Obama was during the same time in his first term. Despite a boost in black voters approval last week, this number seems to have settled back juts below its original level, which remains almost double where it was upon his election...There’s almost no change whatsoever this week in the presidential odds, which in betting terms means the field is solidifying. Donal Trump remains the heavy favorite to win the White House in 2020 with Joe Biden still a distant second on 5/1

SEEKING SAFE FINANCIAL HARBOR - Rich Americans Fill Florida’s Tax Coffers as They Flee High-tax States - 

"As for the losers, New York led the pack, bleeding a whopping $8.8 billion in adjusted gross income from migration.  “Another high-tax state, Connecticut, had the largest income loss relative to its overall economy — at $2.6 billion,” Fox Business also informs. “Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Illinois and New York lost about half of their income from people earning more than $200,000 — indicating the wealthy were picking up and leaving.”

TOO MUCH SPENDING - It’s the Spending, Stupid - 

"The current federal budget fiscal year still has two months to go, but the deficit is already bigger now than it was for all of last year, and heading to more than $1 trillion. Naturally, the Trump tax cuts are getting the lion’s share of the blame.  But the latest data on spending and revenues from the Treasury Dept. make it abundantly clear that it is out-of-control spending, not tax cuts, that are driving the deficit upward. Unfortunately, no one in Washington seems to care."

DEADLY REACTION - Russia admits nuclear reactor blew up during missile test 250 miles from Moscow - 

"Russia confirmed that last week’s explosion involved a nuclear reactor during a failed missile test at a site just 250 miles from Moscow.  Five nuclear scientists were killed during the Aug. 8 explosion, which occurred during the launch of a missile that involved a small nuclear reactor, according to a report by Bloomberg on Monday.  Russia’s state-run nuclear agency Rosatom had confirmed Saturday that the explosion killed several of its employees in a test of an “isotope power source in a liquid propulsion system.”

UNPREDICTABLE - Ryan Daniel Moran: What Everyone Gets WRONG About President Trump - 

"This video focuses on Donald Trump’s biggest strength and on that I do agree:  he is unpredictable.  I’ve said this for a long time…I don’t think anything he does is on accident.  All of the things that appear off the wall, or off the cuff, or the things that people say “I wish he wouldn’t do that.”  To everyone who thinks that, you’re missing what makes him so effective.  So hard to beat.  So hard to pin down.  So hard to gain the upper hand against.  It’s exactly his unpredictability that gives him a tremendous advantage."

RACING FOR SECURITY - Arms Racing With China: Battle for the Missile Race Narrative - 

"Not only is the United States now racing with China to build an adequate missile deterrent capability in Asia, it is also racing with Beijing over who will provide leadership and control the narrative regarding Asia’s strategic future.  After years of Russian cheating, and 30 years of watching China build up its theater missile forces, Washington on Aug. 2 departed from the 1987 Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty with Russia that prevented both from deploying 500km to 5,500km range ground-based missiles. The next day in Australia, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper stated he would like the United States to deploy intermediate range missiles to Asia within “months” though new land-based missiles would take longer to deploy."

OBAMACARE OUT  - Lindsey Graham Makes MONSTER Promise To America If Trump Wins In 2020, And Obama Will Hate It - 

"Lindsey Graham said that Republicans will repeal Obamacare if Trump wins, the GOP keeps the Senate, and if the House Republicans take back the speaker’s gavel from Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).  “If we can get the House back and keep our majority in the Senate, and President Trump wins reelection, I can promise you not only are we going to repeal Obamacare, we’re going to do it in a smart way where South Carolina will be the biggest winner,” Graham said in an interview with a local South Carolina radio station."

UNITED NATIONS ACTING UNREASONABLE - UN To America: Open the Border, Kill More Babies - 

:Behaving more and more like the global government it seeks to become, the United Nations has stepped up its attacks against America — especially the growing efforts to protect the Southern border and the lives of unborn children. Even under President Donald Trump, the UN has continued to bark orders at America as if the U.S. government were a mere administrative unit in what globalists describe as "the New World Order."  In a recent pro-abortion screed, for example, a spokesman for the UN “human rights” apparatus said the global body was “very concerned” about state laws proliferating across the United States that regulate or restrict the killing of pre-born babies. Killing babies is a "human right," at least according to the UN."

NO MORE FREE RIDES - Trump Ending Welfare-Dependent Immigration, Saving Taxpayers Billions - 

"The regulation will be a boon for American taxpayers in the form of an annual $57.4 billion tax cut — the amount taxpayers spend every year on paying for the welfare, crime, and schooling costs of the country’s mass importation of 1.5 million new, mostly low-skilled legal immigrants.  The National Academies of Science released a report two years ago, noting that state and local American taxpayers are billed about $1,600 each year per immigrant to pay for their welfare, where immigrant households consume 33 percent more cash welfare than American citizen households."

NO MARRIED MEN - Pope Francis: Ordination of married men 'absolutely not' main theme of Amazon synod - 

“The important themes,” the pope stated, “will be the ministries of evangelization and the different ways of evangelizing.”

ANOTHER VIEW- Cardinal Pell: “This is not the first low-quality document the Synod secretariate has produced,” Pell writes - 

"Firstly, there is a MUST LISTEN to podcast from Damian Thompson about Card. Pell’s railroading into jail.  HERE  Take the time.  Next, at CNA there is a piece in which Card. Pell comments on the Instrumentum Laboris for the upcoming Pan-Amazonian Synod (“walking together”)."

ANOTHER HERO DIES FOR HIS COUNTRY - US Service Member Killed in Iraq on Joint Mission - 

"BAGHDAD -- The U.S. military says a U.S. service member has died during a combat mission with Iraqi security forces in Iraq's north.  The statement by the U.S Central Command said the service member died Saturday in Iraq's northern Nineveh province."

PRO-LIFE KENTUCKY - Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin Signs Bill to Ban Abortions When Unborn Baby’s Heartbeat Begins - 

"Surrounded by children and parents, the Republican governor praised the new protections for unborn babies and mothers in the state, The Messenger-Inquirer reports. He also signed three additional pro-life bills into law during the signing ceremony at the Daviess County Courthouse.  “Government doesn’t give (life) to us, and government doesn’t have the right to take it away,” Bevin said. “This is a cause of great celebration. It’s celebrating the sanctity of human life.”

MINORITY MAJORITY - Poll: Majority of Blacks, Hispanics Support Anti-Illegal Immigration 2020 Candidates - 

"Voters across racial lines said they would be more likely to support a 2020 presidential candidate that wants to reduce illegal immigration. Roughly 63 percentof black Americans and 61 percent of Hispanic Americans said they would be more likely to support an anti-illegal immigration presidential candidate."

RESPONDING TO A LOSER - President Pushes Back Hard After Shepard Smith Claims El Paso Suspect Used ‘Language of Trump’ - 

TRUMP: “Watching Fake News CNN is better than watching Shepard Smith, the lowest-rated show on @ FoxNews..."  

ARTICLE WRITER: "For years now, Smith has looked like a consistently befuddled man, lost on a network that prides itself on being fair and balanced — virtues he does not possess, in our opinion."

OBNOXIOUS OBAMA LOSES AGAIN- Obama HHS Abortion Mandate Loses in Court, Can’t Force Christian Businesses to Fund Abortions - 

"The Christian Employers Alliance (CEA) has won a major religious freedom victory on behalf of its current and future members. The United States District Court for the District of North Dakota has ruled that the abortifacient mandate under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), as well as the subsequent “accommodation,” burdens the religious exercise of CEA’s members and violates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993."

DIRTY, FILTHY PORN - New study shows porn not only pollutes the mind but the earth - 

"Pornographic videos made up 27 per cent of all online video traffic in 2018, generating more than 80 MtCO2, while the greenhouse-gas emissions of video-on-demand services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime were 100 MtCO2eq/year, or similar to those of Chile, the report said."

LASER SHOW - 'No tears, no blood': Hongkongers stage huge laser show to protest against arrests - 

"It was a sentiment being shared by people across social media as Hong Kong took a much-needed breather from the tense scenes that have gripped the city in recent weeks after a total of almost 2000 rounds of teargas were fired at protesters during clashes with police.  The city is facing its worst political crisis since it returned to Chinese rule in 1997, and the escalating and increasingly more unpredictable protests have prompted countries including the UK, Ireland, Australia, Japan and now the United States to issue travel alerts.  The protests began in opposition to a now-suspended extradition law, which would have allowed suspects to be tried in mainland Chinese courts. They have now broadened into a backlash against the government of the Asian financial hub, fueled by many residents’ fears of eroding freedoms under the tightening control of China’s Communist party leaders in Beijing."

CHRISTIANS BEING SLAUGHTERED - Iraqi Archbishop: ‘Extinction Is Coming’ for Christians in Middle East - 

“With each successive cycle the number of Christians drops, till today we are at the point of extinction,” Warda said. “Argue as you will, but extinction is coming, and then what will anyone say? That we were made extinct by natural disaster, or gentle migration? That the ISIS attacks were unexpected, and that we were taken by surprise? That is what the media will say.”  “Or will the truth emerge after our disappearance: that we were persistently and steadily eliminated over the course of 1,400 years by a belief system which allowed for recurring cycles of violence against Christians, like the Ottoman genocide of 1916-1922,” he declared.

LGBT CORRUPTION - Polish Bishops Denounce ‘Ideological Totalitarianism’ of LGBT Lobby - 

“People belonging to milieus of the so-called sexual minorities are our brothers and sisters for whom Christ gave his life and whom He wants also to be saved,” he insisted. “Respect for specified individuals cannot, however, lead to the acceptance of an ideology that aims to revolutionize social customs and interpersonal relationships.”  Citing Pope Francis, Archbishop Gądecki said that this revolution of customs and morals has often waved the flag of freedom, “but it has, in reality, brought spiritual and material devastation to countless human beings, especially the poorest and most vulnerable.”  The archbishop urged politicians and legislators to resist the “ideological totalitarianism” that lurks behind proposals to radically undermine Poland’s Christian culture, especially as regards God-given differences between men and women.

POTENTIAL FOR PEACE - Trump Signals Another Meeting with Kim Jong Un Likely After N. Korean Leader Wrote Trump a ‘Very Beautiful Letter’ Explaining Latest Missile Tests Were Response to U.S.-S. Korea War Games - 

"Trump told reporters that the letter was hand-delivered on Thursday but didn’t provide details on who delivered it.  Trump said: “It was a very positive letter. I think we’ll have another meeting. He really wrote a beautiful, three-page – I mean great from top to bottom – a really beautiful letter.”  Since last year, Trump and Kim have met three times to discuss productive ways for getting Kim to give up his nuclear weapons."

CREDENTIALS NEEDED - U.K. Prime Minister unveils merit-based immigration reform - 

"Hope For the UK: Boris Johnson plans to ease immigration rules for high-skilled workers and outstanding talent as part of the prime minister’s broader immigration reform. One America’s Kristian Rouz looks into the matter."

TRYING TO "TRUMP UP" A SPLIT FAILS - Trump just beat Democrats on guns - 

"President Trump is playing Democrats again. They want to make gun control an issue. He said, OK, and took control of the gun control debate. The debate will be on his terms and in his language. That is power positioning.  The mopes at the Post and Matt Drudge thought they could divide President Trump from his supporters with the report on the NRA warning the president on guns.  I knew in an instant what was happening. I knew Democrats would lose because President Trump never engages the enemy without first winning the battle. I also knew the president, a busy man, had outsourced the terms of the Democrat surrender to the NRA."

HOLLYWOOD HYPOCRITES  - Donald Trump Thunders Against ‘Racist’ Hollywood: ‘They Create Violence, Then Try to Blame Others - 

"The film, (The Hunt) which has been described as a gory satire featuring actresses Hilary Swank and Betty Gilpin, follows a group of elites who stalk and murder conservatives in red states. The hunters are fueled by their hatred of the “MAGA-type” characters and their right-leaning positions. While the term “deplorables” may not be explicitly stated in the trailer, Daily Mail notes that the “hunted” were, in fact, described as “deplorables” in the screenplay.  It is not clear whether the filmmakers are sympathetic to the “Deplorables” or the “hunters.” Nevertheless, Blumhouse founder Jason Blum is a notorious Trump-hater who was booed off stage at the 32nd Israeli Film Festival in Los Angeles last year after blaming the president for the rise of anti-Semitism."

INCHING TOWARDS DEMOCRACY- Live Video: Massive Protests For Democracy In Moscow - 

"Live video of massive protests for democracy in Moscow over alleged corrupt upcoming municipal elections. Authorities have repressed opposition political figures and detained thousands over the last few weeks to stop the show of civil unrest over Kremlin policies.  Opposition leader Alexei Navalny was imprisoned again and possibly poisoned while in detention, and hospitalized with a ‘severe allergic reaction’. Opposition bank accounts have now been frozen by Russian security services over alleged money laundering by the Kremlin’s opponents.  World leaders have condemned the repression. As the protests grow, this is the most significant challenge to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s presidency in a decade."

NO TRUMP INVOLVEMENT - Democrat Jeffrey Epstein victim testifies that Donald Trump was not involved at all - 

"More than 2,000 documents were unsealed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. The papers included affidavits and depositions of key witnesses in a lawsuit the now-33-year-old woman, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, filed against Epstein and his associate, Ghislane Maxwell in 2015. Giuffre said the duo kept her as a “sex slave” in the early 2000s when she was underage."

SAD WAY TO DIE - Jeffrey Epstein dead in apparent suicide - 


"Two weeks ago, Epstein, 66, was found nearly unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck. He was reportedly placed on suicide watch. Jail spokesman Lee Plourde said Epstein was not “currently” on suicide watch. The Associated Press reported he was taken off suicide watch, though it wasn’t immediately clear when.  The multimillionaire financier was being held without bail pending trial on child sex-trafficking charges. The FBI and the Department of Justice’s Inspector General are both looking into his death."

THE LEFT IS THE MAIN CAUSE - Leaked FBI Report Shows Left-Wingers Are a Bigger Threat Than White Supremacists - 

"With liberals sounding the alarm about a supposed revival of white supremacy, a leaked report suggests that the FBI is actually more concerned about left-wing extremists.  The FBI’s 2018-2019 Consolidated Strategy Guide, an annual summary of the agency’s security priorities, was released Thursday by The Young Turks, a leftist media network. According to the internal report, the FBI is worried about an “elevated” and possibly “growing threat” from “black identity extremists,” or “BIEs.”  A rise in racialized attacks on law enforcement officials first came to the FBI’s attention following the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and the subsequent acquittal of the officers involved, the report said."

MUST PAY FAIR SHARE - US threatens to pull troops from Germany if no increase in NATO defense spending - 

"The U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell has suggested the United States should pull thousands of troops if the country does not increase its required NATO defense spending.  "It is actually offensive to assume that the U.S. taxpayer must continue to pay to have 50,000-plus Americans in Germany, but the Germans get to spend their surplus on domestic programs," Grenell told the Germany press agency DPA this week, which the U.S. Embassy later tweeted."

"Behold I command thee, take courage, and be strong.  Fear not and be not dismayed: because the Lord thy God is with thee in all things whatsoever thou shalt go."

Joshua 1:9


"The Power of the Mass is for you!  It is the sacrifice of sacrifices, because it is the sacrifice of God for us." 




"I have seen scandal come from Pope Francis’ actions too many times and it hurts me to see Holy Mother Church in the state it is today, divided, broken and bleeding, and I will be open about that with people because I believe it is important to talk about. But as much as I dislike Pope Francis, I still pray for him for the sake of our Church and I hope you will, too."

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

GOING TO THE BISHOPS FOR ANSWERSCatholic Scholars Accuse Pope Francis of “the Canonical Delict of Heresy” - 

"The Catholic Church is fighting a battle against a ruthless enemy that will not back down. Just like any country at war, the Church has troops on the frontlines. These troops are its men that have answered the call to take Holy Orders."

"Given the demands of ministry and the complexity of running parishes, effective leadership is paramount to creating and building authentic, vibrant Catholic communities. Good Leaders, Good Shepherds is designed to help priests overcome today’s challenges of a diminishing number of clergy and more complex circumstances for priestly ministry."


HOMOSEXUALITY

"Wherefore, God gave them up to the  desires of their heart, unto  uncleanness; to dishonor their own bodies among themselves.  Who changed the truth of God into a lie  and worshiped and served the CREATURE rather than the CREATOR, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
 
For this cause, God delivered them up (withdrew His Grace) to shameful affections.  For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature.  And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the  natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts, one towards another: men with men, working that which is filthy and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error."

U.S. DEMOCRAT PARTY GUILTY OF MASS MURDER
 
Although there are a few in the Republican Party, the U.S. Democrat Party is mostly made up of politicians who believe you have the “right to kill” unborn Americans in the womb, and even after being born!  They have consistently blocked the Republican Party’s attempts to protect unborn and born alive infants.  They have also blocked the  Republican Party efforts to add a Human Life Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would protect innocent unborn human beings from being sentenced to a “death penalty” & slaughtered, torn apart, & butchered in the womb.
 
For many years spiritually insane actions by Democrat politicians have resulted in the deaths of almost 4,000 human beings EVERY DAY.  Millions upon millions have died at their hands. These mass murderers must be removed from office.  Do not  participate in the brutal murders of the innocent unborn by voting for these  inhuman hypocrites.

SPIRITUALLY REVEALING - Letter from Beyond - 
"This video recounts the tragic story of the eternal damnation of a young woman named Ani. Both the narrative and the letter in this video were found among the papers of a deceased nun, who in the world was known as Claire and worked with the condemned woman. This letter was revealed to Claire in a dream shortly after Ani was killed in a car accident.""

"Miracle of Mother Mary's Statue Crying Blood tears at St. Philip Neri's Church, Katukurunda, Kalutara, Sri Lanka on Good Friday.. When Our Lady is crying there is a reason behind it.. She knew about the bomb attacks.. Heaven allowed her to give us a warning to pray with her so that this attack fails but we didn't understand.. Lets pray fervently asking for God's mercy whenever we see these kind of miracles which are warnings from heaven.. Praying for those who died in the bomb attacks in Sri Lanka."


"She wrote in her Diary on March 1942: “The Virgin Mary appeared to me with tears in her eyes. I approached her and said, ‘Why are you crying?’  ‘I am crying because I cannot appease the anger of my Son against the human race. If men don’t do penance, the war will not end and much blood will be spilled. My daughter, immodest fashions and dishonesty have enraged God. Pray and do penance. Pray the Rosary frequently. It is the only powerful weapon to attract the blessings."

THE SPIRIT OF GOD VERSUS THE SPIRIT OF THE ANTICHRIST

"This is how you can know the Spirit of God: every spirit that acknowledges JESUS CHRIST came in the flesh belongs to GOD, and every spirit that does not acknowledge JESUS CHRIST does not belong to to GOD.  This is the spirit of the antichrist who, as you have heard, is to come, but in fact is already in the world.  

You belong to GOD, children, and you have conquered them, for the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.  They belong to the world: accordingly, their teachings belongs to the world, and the world listens to them.  

We belong to GOD, and anyone who knows GOD listens to us, while anyone who does not belong to GOD refuses to hear us.  This is how we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of deceit."  (1 John 4: 2-6)

JESUS said to him, "I am the WAY, and the TRUTH, and the LIFE; no one comes to the FATHER, but by me."  (John 14:6)

GRAVE WARNINGS

"And they shed INNOCENT BLOOD; the blood of their SONS and
OF THEIR DAUGHTERS... And the land was POLLUTED WITH BLOOD...And the Lord was EXCEEDINGLY ANGRY with his people" (Psalms 105: 38-40). 

"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

SIXTH COMMANDMENT

"You shall not murder."
---Exodus 20:13
The taking of human life is expressly forbidden. Jesus elaborates on this commandment in the Sermon on the Mount, revealing that the sin of murder begins in the heart (Matt. 5:21-22).

"A Catholic would be guilty of FORMAL COOPERATION IN EVIL, and so unworthy to present himself for Holy Communion, if he were to deliberately vote for a candidate precisely because of the candidate’s permissive stand on abortion and/or euthanasia."
---Cardinal Ratzinger on Worthiness to receive Holy Communion

COMMENTARY: It is impossible for a voter to separate his vote based on issues.  When you vote for a politician, you are voting for ALL his beliefs and political actions.  Therefore, if he approves of abortion, you are approving of abortion by voting for him.  It is far better to pray, let the Hand of Almighty God decide the outcome, and not vote at all if you do not agree with either political party's candidate.  It is God who rewards the Just, and punishes the guilty. 

We must first strive to be a good Christian, rather than striving to be a "good American."  It also must never be viewed as selecting the lessor of two evils.  Evil is evil, and voting for someone whom you believe is the lessor of two evils makes you an accomplice or cooperating with EVIL.

THE VISION OF ST. BRIDGET OF SWEDEN
 
St. Bridget of Sweden had a vision of Pope Gregory XI standing before Christ in judgment that she then communicated to him (February, 1373):  
 
"Rise up manfully, put on thy strength, and begin to renovate My Church which I acquired with My own Blood .... If thou dost not obey My Will, I will cast thee down from the Court of Heaven, and all the devils of hell shall divide thy soul, and for benediction thou shalt be filled with malediction -- eternally.... If thou dost obey me in this way, I will be merciful to thee, and will bless thee, and will clothe thee with Myself, so that thou wilt be in Me and I in thee, and thou shalt possess eternal glory."

THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS - PROPHECIES - 

COMMENTARY: There are a number of websites promoting or dismissing the Three Days of Darkness. Therefore your prayerful discernment is required. However, this website contains a good amount of truth regarding Catholic beliefs on a number of issues. It is also good to remember (although some doubt he actually said this, but it certainly makes sense) what Pope Urban VIII has reportedly said. (Of course, a decision regarding the Three Days of Darkness must be made before it actually happens, otherwise it would be too late):

"In cases which concern private revelations, it is better to believe than not to believe, for, if you believe, and it is proven true, you will be happy that you have believed, because our Holy Mother asked it. If you believe, and it should be proven false, you will receive all blessings as if it had been true, because you believed it to be true."  vtb

FROM THE SACRED SCRIPTURES

"I will yet pour out doctrine as prophecy, and will leave it to them that seek wisdom, and will not cease to instruct their offspring even to the holy age. See ye that I have not laboured for myself only, but for all that seek out the truth."
(Ecclesiasticus, speaking of Wisdom: 24:46-47)

And it came to pass, that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of MARY, the INFANT LEAPED IN HER WOMB. And she cried out with a loud voice, and said: Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the FRUIT OF THY WOMB.  And whence is this to me, that the MOTHER OF MY LORD should come to me?  Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid, for behold from henceforth all generations SHALL CALL ME BLESSED” (Luke 1:31,36,41-43,48).
 
“And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David... To be enrolled with Mary his espoused wife, who was WITH CHILD” (Luke 2:4-5).
