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?
Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, is determined to put Scotland at the front of the queue in promoting LGBT issues, and is now focussing big time on “Trans” issues. This includes brainwashing pupils in primary schools:
“…Last week the Scottish Government was told it may face legal action over school transgender guidance it endorsed and funded. ‘Supporting Transgender Young People: Guidance For Schools in Scotland’ says teachers should not tell parents if their child changes gender at school unless the child, who could be as young as four years old, gives permission first. Lawyers for The Christian Institute warned the guide “contains glaring errors in relation to the current law”.Read more here
So, from their primary school days through to university, Scottish students are to be brainwashed with the crackpot notion that men can become women and women can become men. For Edinburgh University to issue “Pronoun” badges, is akin to handing out Identity (ID) badges. So much for the fear of being bullied. Seriously, what kind of craziness IS this? Is there nothing to be done? Are we simply to settle down and wait for this madness to pass? Are we going to continue to allow ourselves to be bullied into silence through fear of being charged with “hate speech”? Is there anything we can do, those of us who do not adhere to politically correct “norms”? And that includes the priest chaplains of these schools, colleges and universities… and their Bishops – why are they silent? When will it dawn on them that they, more than anyone else, will be called to serious account for their failure to speak out loud and clear in the face of this major assault on our basic humanity?
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
A small group of us will be in Ireland for a couple of days later this week, leafleting in support of the pro-life campaign in the forthcoming abortion referendum.
News updates will be posted on this thread, and any statistics on abortion in the UK that you think will help us when we speak to Irish people on the streets of Dublin on Thursday and Friday, will be most welcome. Please post as many facts as you can find – we need to be well equipped to convince the “undecided” as, sadly, the humanity of the unborn child doesn’t seem to be sufficient in the face of the propaganda about the woman’s alleged right to choose. We WILL do our best to counter this argument, since it’s not HER body that the choice is about, but about the body – and soul – of the unborn baby. Our excellent little leaflethighlights this fact, that the child being destroyed by abortion was destined for eternal life, known by God from all eternity.
Above all, please pray for our trip – we’ll only be there on Thursday all day and then on Friday, the day of the referendum, so time is short. We have organised 3,000 leaflets to distribute so we will be very busy during the two days.
Nobody trusts the media today – apparently opinion polls show that journalists and politicians are neck and neck in sharing the public’s dismal opinion about their integrity. Yet, generally speaking Catholics seem to believe whatever they are told, judging by recent high profile controversies. The Catholic hierarchy generally go along with the popular view, as fed to us via the media. Is this naiveté or charity?
