Anti-Catholic US Democrats Oppose Trump’s (Catholic) Supreme Court Pick…

Comment: 

Just imagine, for a moment, the outcry if those anti-Catholic Democratic politicians had quizzed a Muslim, or the member of any other religion, in the way they put down Amy Coney Barrett due to her religious beliefs.  Just imagine the outcry in the media. What is it about Catholics, that we take such hatred “on the chin”?   

And why do Catholics in public office seek to allay the fears of our enemies by saying things to the effect that their religion won’t interfere with their professional obligations?  No point in being a Catholic at all, if that is the case. 

What else could Amy Coney Barrett have said in response to the question about her Faith and her work as a Judge? Perhaps point out that it could never be the case that true justice would be opposed to anything taught by Christ and His Catholic Church?  Words to that effect?  What, then?   

USA: Faithful Priest Speaks Out – “You Can’t Be A Catholic And A Democrat!”

LA CROSSE, Wisconsin, September 14, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Hundreds of people descended on a rural Wisconsin city on Sunday in a show of support for Father James Altman, whose viral video message, “You can’t be a Catholic and a Democrat,” has now been viewed more than 660,000 times.  

Fr. Altman’s bishop, the Most Rev. William P. Callahan, recently threatened the outspoken priest with “canonical penalties” for his video, even as public support for the priest has surged among rank-and-file Catholics around the country.  

Supporters reportedly came from as far away as Puerto Rico to pray the rosary for Fr. Altman, who has been called “brave and courageous,” a “true shepherd,” and a “modern-day John the Baptist.” Many supporters praised Altman for empowering laity and priests alike to be bold and speak the truth. 

Nearly all the prayer rally participants interviewed by LifeSiteNews shared a common sentiment: “We need more priests like Fr. Altman who are true shepherds.”  

“When you look at how many people showed up today, that came from many states away, that just speaks volumes about how hungry people are for truth,” said one woman. “What a great gift Fr. Altman has for being able to proclaim that truth in an eloquent way that not only empowers the public.” He is “empowering our priests as well.”

“Fr. Altman speaks the truth loud and clear and bold,” observed another. “We need more priests like him.” 

“Fr. Altman is a rare breed. He’s a modern-day St. John the Baptist,” declared another. “He’s really changed my life and so many others he’s had that impact on. We need more priests who are true shepherds.”

“He takes his role as shepherd extremely seriously and we need that, especially in today’s world,” the Fr. Altman supporter continued. “There’s so much chaos, and I love how he calls out the ‘brood of vipers’ within the Church, within our government.”    

“He is motivating us Catholics to do more than just watch him on video and feel good,” she added, saying that she thinks people will now get out to defend the faith. “I think he is being used by God as a catalyst for change within the parishioners in Catholic churches, not only here in Wisconsin, but all around the world.”

One young woman told LifeSiteNews that she believes a lot of priests remain silent because of fear of repercussions from the hierarchy.  

“Fr. Altman is so brave and courageous that he’s willing to risk all of that for us so that souls might be saved and that people might be spared from the eternal fires of hell,” she noted. 

“Fr. Altman is an incredibly humble man,” said a woman who works at Fr. Altman’s parish, St. James the Less in La Crosse, as she waved her hand, pointing to the large surrounding crowd. “I think this whole thing really mystifies him.”

She said she was shocked to see people from all around the country come to support her parish priest. That support is needed, though, because Fr. Altman “preaches the truth [which is] sometimes hard for people to hear; it can be hard to swallow, and so there are some people who are resistant to the truth.”

A man who said he’s not Catholic but showed up to support Fr. Altman nonetheless commented, “We’ve been watching his homilies since May.” 

“We love these fellow patriots, we love them, we care about them,” he continued.  

He said he has been disappointed with some members of the “Protestant clergy not speaking up.” 

“We’ve got Fr. Altman over here, our friend, speaking up boldly, so we’re 100% behind him,” he concluded. 

Father Richard Heilman, a popular speaker and writer who led the “Peaceful Prayer Rosary Rally,” said, “I know a lot of people wrote letters of appreciation to Fr. Altman’s bishop, and I bet he saw thousands – if not tens of thousands – of letters, because we all do appreciate Fr. James Altman.” 

“Bottom line: He loves, loves, loves his flock, and so like a good shepherd, if he sees the wolves invading, he sounds the warning alarm,” said Heilman. 

“Finally!” proclaimed Heilman. “Finally someone with such fiery passion is speaking directly to what’s going on in the Church and in the world, and we’re so eternally grateful to him for that.”  Source – Lifesitenews

USA: Doctor Against Forced Covid-19 Vaccine References Nazi Doctors…

Comment:

Which of the arguments put forward by the young doctor in the video above do you find most persuasive?  And is he right to reference history, linking a forced vaccination programme now, to the activities of Nazi doctors during the Second World War, or are modern democratic Governments such as the USA and the UK highly unlikely to abuse their authority in any way akin to what happened during the war?  Remember, we haven’t been told the truth about Covid-19 which is not, as the doctor points out in the interview above, anything like as deadly as we were originally led to believe.  So, what do you think…  to force vaccinations on populations or not to force vaccinations – that is the question.

Scots Catholics For Trump Discuss Subversive, Mis-Named, Democratic Party

Below, a very informative article by one of our American bloggers – RCA Victor – to get us thinking about the forthcoming election in November, where the choice is between another term of office (four years) for President Trump or a new President, Joe Biden, a man who is a great friend of Communist China but no friend at all of the unborn child. A nominal Catholic, Biden is promising abortion up to the ninth month.  RCA Victor writes –

The Subversive Democratic Party: If at First You Don’t Succeed…

The [utterly mis-named] Democratic Party, long disguised as the “party of the working man,” has
dropped all pretense of advocacy for the well-being of our Republic, let alone the working man, and is now nakedly exposed as a Satanic cult of liars, thugs, subversives and smear artists obsessed with the acquisition of power by any means, at any price. This unmasking took place during a relatively short period: the eight years of the Obama “administration” (a regime more accurately labeled as the George Soros administration: Obama was merely his stooge).  This shorter link exposes the Soros network:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mItj4bA9Rn4

Their evil intentions and agenda appeared sporadically during those eight years, but since the first Presidential campaign of Donald Trump, and especially since his election, this Cult has orchestrated a full-court press to destroy not only Mr. Trump, but any trace of America-first policies, in favor of the perverse and sinister agenda of the New World Order, which is nothing more than International Communism with yet another new face.

The Cult includes politicians and former politicians, bureaucrats, so-called journalists, media celebrities, social network mobs, Marxist thugs, Silicon Valley oligarchs and other billionaires, academics, and even ex-military figures. Their well-funded but incompetent schemes failed to destroy the Trump Presidency, but that has not stopped them from developing a more comprehensive plan, this time to prevent Trump’s re-election. This scheme has many facets and is very dangerous, not only to Mr. Trump’s re-election, but especially to the future viability of the Republic. It includes the following:

1. Vote Fraud. This is actually an umbrella strategy that includes, but is not limited to, mail-in voting, encouraging non-citizens to vote, ballot harvesting, lowering the voting age to 16, allowing incarcerated criminals to vote, and abolishing the Electoral College.

2. False Accusations. A favorite tactic of the Cult is to accuse Trump of everything they are guilty
of, a psychological warfare strategy known as “projection.” Accusations already surfaced include such bizarre claims as: Trump will fix and steal the election, Trump will refuse to step down if he loses, Trump is an illegitimate President (a tactic tried out after his first victory) and Trump will have to be removed by military coup. Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House and a thoroughly corrupt, vicious and deranged woman (who claims to be Catholic!), has recently accused Trump and the Republicans of being “domestic enemies” and “enemies of the state” – an accurate description of Pelosi herself, and of her fellow Cult members.

3. Compromised Vote Tabulations. Ever faithful to their icon Stalin’s famous dictum, “it’s not the people who vote that count, it’s the people  who count the votes,” election researchers have already found evidence that voting machines can be and are compromised, and tallies manipulated by disabling security protections.

4. Create Litigation Chaos. Hillary Clinton has already telegraphed some of this strategy by publicly stating that Joe Biden “should not concede under any circumstances.” That is, election results unfavorable to the Satanists will be thrown into countless court battles via a “massive legal operation,” which will not only dispute any invalidation of suspicious or faulty ballots, but even attempt to delay certification in Democrat-controlled states so that the Electoral College cannot declare a winner.

5. Big Tech Weaponization. It is well-known that Google, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter have been suppressing conservative information, i.e. the truth, for several years now. An investigation into this by Project Veritas can be found here.

6. Riots and Unrest. You can be sure that mobs of George Soros-funded paramilitary thugs, especially his two favorite Marxist guerilla gangs –  Antifa and Black Lives Matter – will be present at targeted polling locations to intimidate voters and suppress votes, shouting slogans of “systemic racism,” “white privilege,” “capitalist imperialism,” and other threats specifically adapted to each location. Should Trump actually win the election, these same gangs are poised to engage in widespread violence and rioting.

7. Finally, all this and more is enabled and facilitated by the Cult’s control of the media, who have long since abandoned all pretense of journalistic integrity and accuracy in favor of overt electioneering and character assassination. As soon as the Cult produces a lie, their media partners, following the Joseph Goebbels axiom, begin screeching their attempt to validate it. This process also works in reverse, as media-produced lies are repeated ad nauseam by the rest of the Cult. Such is the power of evil in America, now gathered with fearsome strength against a seemingly lone warrior, Donald Trump. But all this power is hollow, because it is from Satan himself. We need to pray to Our Lady to crush the head of this satanic attack against Mr. Trump, against the United States of America, and against the once-Christian West. This election is the beginning, in my opinion, of Satan’s penultimate battle, which will culminate in his defeat by the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Editor’s Comment…                               

Informed Scots Catholics recognise that Donald Trump is our only hope, humanly speaking, to avert the introduction of Communist rule into  previously democratic nations like the USA and the UK.  So, we add our voices to those of our American friends, who are praying and working to achieve a second term for President Trump. 

We’ve chosen to launch this discussion on the 8 September, the day marked in the traditional calendar as the Nativity of Our Lady, asking our beloved Blessed Mother for her intercession to win many graces for the American people and politicians, as the election campaigns begin.  We pray that she might soften the hearts of the Democratic Party politicians, and enlighten the minds of those who normally wouldn’t vote for the Republican Party. 

We need Donald Trump in office for another four years because, as the UN Economist, Jeffrey Sachs has admitted publicly, President Trump is the only thing standing between [the elite] and the New World Order – which we know is a euphemism for one world tyrannical governance.  The most pro-life President in the history of America is opposed by a political party promoting abortion up to and including delivery – do Catholics have any choice…seriously?  How will any Catholic face God at his/her judgment if they do NOT vote for Trump in November?  Answers on the proverbial postcard, please and thank you! 

 Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!  Our Lady of Good Success, pray for us!  Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us!   

Covid-19: Is the Pandemic Panic Dying? 

Comment…

Does the optimism in the above video, hopeful that the end of the pandemic restrictions is nigh, reflect what is happening in the UK?  Or is the fact that we are living under the persistent threat of more local lockdowns and fresh restrictions, an indication that, on this side of The Pond, at least, life as before, life under the “old normal” is not set to return any time soon – if ever?   See, in the short video clip below, the Scottish First Minister, just a few short days ago, setting out the latest limits to the freedom of Glaswegians – the majority of whom will humbly (or stupidly, depending on your point of view) comply, without question…  The USA is led by a President who wants to restore the “old normal” – the UK is led by those who appear to be committed to the “new” normal – tyrannical rule, “rule by decree”.  Is that a fair interpretation of current events? 

 

American Commentator Dennis Prager: Lockdown is a Crime – Is He Right? 

Dennis Prager

Four months ago, I wrote a column  titled “The Worldwide Lockdown May Be the Greatest  Mistake in History.” I explained that “‘mistake’ and ‘evil’ are not synonyms. The lockdown is a mistake; the Holocaust, slavery, communism, fascism, etc., were evils. Massive mistakes are made by arrogant fools; massive evils are committed by evil people.”

Regarding the economic catastrophe in America and around the world — especially among the world’s poor who are dependent upon America and other first-world countries for their income through exports and tourism — I wrote, “It is panic and hysteria, not the coronavirus, that created this catastrophe.”

Unfortunately, I was right.

The world should have followed Sweden’s example. That country never locked down and has even kept children under 16 in school the entire time. As Reuters reported on July 15, the number of Swedish children between 1 and 19 years of age who have died of COVID-19 is zero. And the percentage of children who contracted the illness was the exact same in Sweden as it was in Finland, which locked down its schools.

As regards teachers, Sweden’s Public Health Agency reported that “a comparison of the incidence of COVID-19 in different professions suggested no increased risk for teachers.” Nevertheless, with few exceptions, teachers in Los Angeles and elsewhere refuse to enter a classroom that has students in it. Their disdain for their profession has been superseded only by that of the Los Angeles teachers union, which announced that teachers will not resume teaching until the police are defunded.

People who defend lockdowns and closing schools point out that Sweden has the eighth-highest death rate per million in the Western world. But, needless to say, this has no bearing at all on the issue of whether Sweden was right to keep schools open or whether our country was wrong to close them, let alone keep them closed now. The overwhelming majority of deaths from COVID-19 in Sweden were among people over 70 years of age, and most of those were people over 80 and with compromised immune systems.

Swedish flag

Reuters reported that three separate studies, including one by UNICEF, “showed that Swedish children fared better than children in other countries during the pandemic, both in terms of education and mental health.”

For more than a month, Sweden has had almost no deaths from COVID-19 while the entire society remains open and almost no one wears masks. (In Holland, too, almost no one wears masks.) For all intents and purposes, the virus is over in Sweden.

I live in California, a state governed by that most dangerous of leaders: a fool with unlimited power. Despite the fact that California ranks 28th among the 50 states in deaths per million, Gov. Gavin Newsom has destroyed and continues to destroy tens of thousands of small businesses and untold numbers of livelihoods. His continuing to forbid — a half-year after the onset of the pandemic — indoor dining in restaurants is leading to a projected permanent closure of approximately 1 in every 3 restaurants in the state. The same catastrophic destruction will likely affect retail businesses and services such as hair and nail salons. But all this human tragedy — not to mention increased depression and suicides among the young and increased abuse of children and partners — means nothing to Newsom, to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti or to the Los Angeles Times, whose editors and columnists continue to advocate for the lockdown while they receive their salaries.

Why can people eat with no mask in an airplane — inches, not six feet, from strangers — but cannot eat in a California restaurant, which is so much bigger than the inside of an airplane, while sitting six feet from others? Because Newsom ordered it, the Los Angeles Times supports it and, like sheep, Californians have accepted it.

According to the California Association of Museums, “Museums are losing over $22 million a day due to the statewide quarantine. As of August 1, 2020, California museums have lost more than $2.9 billion in revenue. Museums have a $6.55 billion financial impact on California’s economy, support 80,722 jobs, and generated $492 million in tax revenues for the State of California in 2017 and over $1 billion in federal taxes.”

And the American Alliance of Museums issued results from a survey on July 22, 2020, that warned 1 out of every 3 museums may shutter forever as funding sources and financial reserves run dry.

On Aug. 3, The Wall Street Journal wrote, “In March … There was broad public support for the prudent goals of preventing hospitals from being overwhelmed and buying scientists time to develop therapies.” But the left — the media and Democratic governors and mayors — immediately moved the goal posts to “bending the curve” and “saving one life,” enabling them to get away with destroying lives and livelihoods.

“Covid is over in Sweden. People have gone back to their normal lives and barely anyone is getting infected any more. I am willing to bet that the countries that have shut down completely will see rates spike when they open up. If that is the case, then there won’t have been any point in shutting down in the first place … Shutting down completely in order to decrease the total number of deaths only makes sense if you are willing to stay shut down until a vaccine is available. That could take years. No country is willing to wait that long.”

The lockdown is a crime. But even more upsetting is that it is supported by so many Americans. This country is unrecognizable to those of us who lived through the 1968-1970 pandemic, which killed, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 100,000 Americans — the 2020 equivalent of 170,000 Americans. Nothing shut down. Not one mask was worn.

Comment: 

Lockdown is no longer a mistake – it’s now a crime.  I’m inclined to agree – big time.  What about you?   

And surely, if lockdowns are a crime, then someone has to be held accountable – but who?  And what might be the consequences for those politicians who kept these lockdowns in place, and/or are reintroducing them on a whim, keeping us in a state of fear?  Resignations galore? Prison? What then?   

What, too, about those in positions of authority within the Church – the bishops who offered to close churches and those others in authority who were in a position to resist?  These alleged men of God are enforcing the Government imposed restrictions on how we pray and worship God – many of them, to their eternal shame, doing so enthusiastically. Are they just as guilty as our political masters –  or even more guilty?   

“Cancelling” George Soros… Who Is He?

From Wikipedia…

Born in Budapest, Soros survived Nazi Germanyoccupied Hungary and moved to the United Kingdom in 1947. He attended the London School of Economics, graduating with a bachelor’s, then obtaining a master’s, and eventually a Doctor of Philosophy. Soros began his business career by taking various jobs at merchant banks in the United Kingdom and then the United States, before starting his first hedge fund, Double Eagle, in 1969. Profits from his first fund furnished the seed money to start Soros Fund Management, his second hedge fund, in 1970. Double Eagle was renamed to Quantum Fund and was the principal firm Soros advised. At its founding, Quantum Fund had $12 million in assets under management, and as of 2011 it had $25 billion, the majority of Soros’s overall net worth.

Soros is known as “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England” because of his short sale of US$10 billion worth of pounds sterling, which made him a profit of $1 billion during the 1992 Black Wednesday UK currency crisis. Based on his early studies of philosophy, Soros formulated an application of Karl Popper‘s General Theory of Reflexivity to capital markets, which he claims renders a clear picture of asset bubbles and fundamental/market value of securities, as well as value discrepancies used for shorting and swapping stocks.

Soros is a well-known supporter of progressive and liberal political causes, to which he dispenses donations through his foundation, the Open Society Foundations. Between 1979 and 2011, he donated more than $11 billion to various philanthropic causes; by 2017, his donations “on civil initiatives to reduce poverty and increase transparency, and on scholarships and universities around the world” totaled $12 b…

Nigel Farage questions Soros’s links to the European Union…

Comment: 

This thread is posted following conversations with people here in Scotland who have never heard of George Soros.  These are people who consider themselves to be reasonably well informed but had no idea of the extent of this one man’s influence. The subject arose during a brief discussion about the riots in America.  The possibility that these riots and “protests” were paid for by this one elderly gentleman was breaking news to these politically aware Scots – never mind his funding of abortion etc. So, how many others know nothing about this man?  How many others have no idea that he is using his money to re-shape society – or in the plan set out at the January 2019 World Economic Forum, to “reset the world“? 

Should this wealthy man be allowed to use his money to thwart the USA election in November, because that’s what he seems to have in mind. Trump was falsely accused of colluding with Russia to win the 2016 election.  Should Soros be allowed to collude with the Democrats and/or whoever else, to prevent Trump winning a second term?   In the popular parlance of cancel culture, we need to debate whether or not George Soros should be cancelled…  I vote “aye”!    

World Health Organisation: We Cannot Return To Life As It Was Before Covid-19

Comment: 

Does anyone seriously think that Tucker’s observations apply only to America?  Will we ever get the UK back? Will life ever go back to “normal” in this part of the world,  or will we be stuck with “the new normal”; that is, tyrannical governance?  Answer: we won’t return to normal unless we rise up in opposition to the tyranny.  Simple as that. 

Coronavirus “Crisis” Increasingly Sinister & Dangerous… Where’s Pope Francis? 

Discussed in the above video…

  • Police state pandemic restrictions in Melbourne, Australia are terrifying.
  • Joe Biden announces plan to hire 100,000 contact tracers as soon as he takes office.
  • Antifa/BLM protesters set up guillotines all across America, including in front of home of Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos. What. Is. Going. ON. HERE?
  • Leftist group announces plans for a September “White House Siege”, as America braces for pre-election Reign of Terror?
  • Pope Francis suggests that, in order to be not hypocritical, defenders of the sanctity of human life need to support BLM.

  • Bernie Sanders says Trump is the ‘most dangerous president in U.S. history.” Why Trump terrifies the radical Left?
  • Finally, is this street revolution in America really about race and capitalism, or is it global anarchy?

Comment:

Thing are steadily worsening. I speak to people who chat to taxi-drivers and bus drivers and other members of the travelling public all the time, and there is a growing awareness, thankfully, that the changes to our way of life being imposed by politicians in the name of “health” and “safety” has nothing whatsoever to do with a virus.   What about the people around you – are they becoming more alert to the truth of what is really happening?

But first…

A couple of lighter points;  first some good news…

Our blogger Gabriel Syme and his wife are expecting the third addition to their lovely family – in fact, baby is overdue and is expected to arrive any time soon.  So, pray for that intention – that the baby’s self-imposed local lockdown ends tonight, as now expected.  Our Lady, Queen & Mother, pray for mum and baby…

Also, one of our readers made me laugh a hearty laugh this morning, after Mass, when he described his encounter with a policeman at a railway station recently.  Not another soul around, but the policeman still questioned why our reader wasn’t wearing a face mask.  Eventually, he told the policeman to “Foxtrot off” – priceless.  Actually, the policeman was very polite and the exchange was civilised, so I’m guessing our reader spiced it up in the telling.  Whatever, it makes for a bit of fun! And do we need some fun these days? Does a gal need her regular coffee and fresh cream meringues? 

The Great Reset…Covid-19, A Golden Opportunity to “Re-Set” the World…

Comment:  

To quote from The Remnant piece presenting the above video  (and remember what is true for the USA is also true for the UK)...

To understand what’s really happening here, [Michael Matt] takes us to Davos, Switzerland—to the World Economic Forum—where the movers and shakers of the world have been meeting on a regular basis, especially since January 2020, to discuss the “opportunity” for a ‘global reset’ at the Davos 2021 Summit.

Using multiple video clips, Michael shows how everyone from Soros, to Gates, to Schwab, to Al Gore and the Secretary-General of the United Nations are only too eager to admit exactly what The Great Reset is all about.

Using the Trojan Horse of a very serious Coronavirus, these globalists plan to create a global reset of everything from the world economy, to population control, commerce, climate change regulation, education and the UN Sustainable Development Goals in order to “reorder” and “reimagine” every aspect of life as we know it.

This is the rest of the story behind the Russia hoax, Ukraine, the phony impeachment and all the other deep state attempts to cripple Trump’s efforts to ‘make America great again.”

Why? Because no country—especially not the U.S.—can opt out of The Great Reset.

If they get their New Normal, nothing will be the same ever again. Nothing, that is, unless Donald Trump wins in November.

The folks at Davos want a new world order, and the only thing standing in their way at the moment is US.   Ends

And remember, folks, “the new world order” is, by definition, Communism.  Make no mistake about it – although, if you disagree, tell us…
