Only now is the UK media beginning to cover the reports of sexual misconduct brought against Brett Kavanaugh – with the predictable unquestioning acceptance of the allegations levelled against the Judge. Well, after all, it’s a woman making the allegations, and the accused is male, so she must be telling the truth… right? As for what is motivating these women to exert themselves to keep him out of the Supreme Court… Having watched the ferocity of the pro-abortionists here in the UK, desperate to extend abortion “rights” and to decriminalise it completely, I think it’s clear that these “liberal” females will stop at nothing to prevent any “conservative” candidate from tipping the balance a tad more to the “right”. Nothing these morons do surprises me in the least. Maybe, though, for the sake of his own peace of mind, not to mention his family’s safety (there have been death threats), he should withdraw his nomination although The New York Times reports that he vows to continue What would YOU advise him to do? Is it really worth it? Can anyone really fight this sort of smear campaign – and remain sane?
Below, a short video clip from the USA media, refreshingly challenging the uncritical media coverage to date…
Jacob Rees-Mogg MP, widely lauded as a strict, traditional Catholic, fails to make the distinction between ‘judgmentalism’ and making necessary moral judgments… or maybe you agree with him? Do we really need a lying, adulterous Prime Minister to take us through Brexit? That’s how I’m reading JRM’s support for Boris – what about you?
Continuing the UK Government’s policy of spending vast sums of aid money on pushing contraception and abortion on developing nations, Theresa May, the Prime Minister, has announced a new initiative which will see £200 million spent on family planning in Africa and Asia.
The Prime Minister announced the creation of the Women’s Integrated Sexual Health (WISH) programme during a visit to Kenya. It will “target women and girls in rural and poor communities who have traditionally been hardest to reach, will provide mobile clinics and contraceptive materials such as pills, condoms and implants.” …
As Donna Harrison, M.D, president, American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, said in a letter to the Office of the UN High Commission on Human Rights, “abortion, spontaneous and induced, accounts for less than 5 percent of maternal mortality. It is scientifically, medically, and morally unacceptable to divert resources from interventions proven to reduce maternal mortality to the provision of abortion, under the guise of ‘decreasing unsafe abortion.’ The better way to reduce the human rights dimension of maternal mortality is to provide resources targeting the causes of 90 percent of maternal mortality.” Read entire LifeNews report here
Blogger Wendy Walker, writes:
This is absolutely DISGRACEFUL …I will be writing as a paid up member to both her and HQ to ask what is going on. She also, I believe, congratulated Varadkar on obtaining abortion for Ireland.
This unelected PM must go NOW; bring on Jacob Rees-Mogg urgently. Why could she not put this HUGE amount of money towards desalination/seed programmes to help the new generations in a positive way? More genocide and racism here as well …please everyone who is upset by this travesty DO write in to number 10 – thank you.

Open Letter to Pope Francis…
I am shocked beyond words at your silence during the abortion referendum in Ireland. A small group of us, Scots, went over to Dublin in order to help save the lives of the unborn babies at risk of being killed if a YES vote resulted so we remain in shock that the Pope himself remained silent throughout and yet plans to visit Ireland to attend a meeting ostensibly about “family” despite the fact that a keynote speaker is an LGBT-Z activist priest. We were treated appallingly by the majority of the Irish people whom we encountered on our visit – nasty and completely sold to the values of this world. YOU encouraged that by your silence.
You are easily the worst-ever pope in the history of the Church and a future pope and Council will denounce you as it denounced Honorius I. Think of the book titles, the headlines: From Honorius I to Francis I. Roll on!
Used to be that the jibe “is the Pope Catholic” was a joke. No more. Your alleged Catholicity is now the joke. So, enjoy your visit to Ireland, enjoy the World Meeting of Families – just don’t try to pass the event off as “Catholic”.
With no condemnation (however belatedly) of the shocking pro-abortion vote, and your willingness to share a platform with a priest who will present, as a good, one of the four sins that cry to Heaven for vengeance, your presence at this event can only serve to further attack the teaching of Christ’s Church.
You, Papa Francis, are about as Catholic as the nearest Imam.

Click here to send YOUR open letter, albeit short and to the point, to Pope Francis via the Irish Times, ahead of his visit to Ireland later this month. And then feel free to copy it onto the blog and/or share your thoughts about the forthcoming World Meeting of Families.
So, what about that papal visit to Ireland in August for the World Meeting of Families? It’s bad enough that Pope Francis has agreed to visit what must now rank as the LEAST Catholic/most secular country in the universe to participate in what can only be a mish-mash of utter hypocritical talk and shallow blether about family life – let’s just pray they don’t have the temerity to use “Catholic” as an adjective there; but those Irish people! WOW! Instead of being covered in embarrassment at their national votes for same-sex “marriage” and abortion, what are they
fighting about discussing on their media talk shows? Brace yourself: they’re battling over which celebrities should be entertaining Papa Francis and who has the right to sing what. Truly, you couldn’t make this stuff up. Click here to read all about this latest craziness from across the water
It’s a very true saying, isn’t it, that those whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.
Nor could you make up the fact that while the Archbishop of Dublin is welcoming the “gay” activist priest, American Fr James Martin as a keynote speaker at the same World Meeting of Families, he’s thrown Dublin Parish Priest Fr James Larkin under the bus for the crime of urging those who voted for abortion in the May referendum, to repent and go to Confession. Click here to read about that scandal. In the good old days, they’d have been told that by voting for the murder of unborn babies, they had automatically excommunicated themselves, but, hey, let’s not go there.
Today’s news broadcasts are dominated by reports and commentary on Donald Trump’s visit to the UK. He’s just arrived and seems to be making most of his journeys within the UK by air, to avoid the nasty protests being staged all over the place. Group-think means that Trump is universally hated here, with loud-mouths peddling the propaganda that he is a racist, misogynistic, you-name-it, who earlier today “ranted” at the Nato Summit. Never mind that we saw his demeanour, heard his words at the Nato Summit and it was not remotely an angry rant. It was a measured, if outspoken, address to those sitting with him at table and the only question of any importance is the one NOT addressed by the media hacks: was he telling the truth? Of course he was. America is paying much more than any other Nato member and he was doing what none of his predecessors had the bottle to do, calling it out.
One other feature of today’s discussions is also utterly dishonest. The cost of policing the President’s visit has been rolled out over and over again to attack the decision to invite him in the first place. Never mind that the cost of policing is due to the insistence of the thousands of “peaceful protesters” (let’s review that after the event) who lack respect for the choice of the American people to elect their own President, and never mind, too that we are paying for unnecessary policing at all sorts of events week in and week out, with not a peep of protest from anyone.
For example, here in Glasgow, there are marches and “charity” runs regularly, if not every week through the city centre on Sundays; one of our readers used to board a bus to go into town to Mass but she never knew which church she would end up attending, all depending on the route for this week’s march, demonstration, “charity” run, whatever. Then, too, there are the regular Orange Parades and the “Gay Pride” marches – how much do all of these events cost to police?
So, enough of the bigotry and anti-Trump prejudice currently engulfing the UK, including Scotland, about which the President speaks so warmly. Makes me ashamed to be a Scot, watching and listening to the nastiness being hurled his way.
Trump haters want him to stop undermining their work in murdering unborn babies; they want him to stop enforcing the law against illegal immigration. In short, they want him to follow Scotland/UK’s lead in being a “modern, socially progressive, democratic nation.” The first time I heard the word “progressive” it was an adjective to “cancer”. The connection is still apt.
We, at Catholic Truth, welcome President Trump to Scotland, not least because Our Lord warns us of the price we risk paying at our Judgment if we don’t: “I was a stranger, and you did not make me welcome…” Matthew 25:45-46
