With monotonous regularity, the print and broadcasting news outlets across the UK are leading with allegations of sexual harassment of women. Today’s news broadcasts and newspapers are no exception, devoting air-time and front pages to publishing this latest scandal
Seems there’s hardly a decent male anywhere to be found. The presumption now is, clearly, “guilty until proven innocent” – that’s becoming more and more clear. For a touch of balance, check out the entirely false allegation made against Tucker Carlson, popular American broadcaster, whose entire life and career was almost destroyed by a woman he’d never even met.
Has the feminist movement gone too far? Are radical feminists, in fact, completely irrational women, driven by a hatred of men and masculinity? Why are there apparently no women in the media industry speaking out against radical feminism? Female news anchors interviewing (the very few) women who signal some reservations about the current frenzy, react quickly and with annoyance, as if they want the allegations to be true. What’s going on – should men be presumed guilty until proven innocent? If so, does that apply across the board to all crimes, or merely to allegations of a sexual nature?

Isn’t it refreshing to hear some honest discussion about the real cause, the root cause of the change in society – in this case, specifically the increased violence in the U.S.A… That it is the human condition, fallen human nature that is to blame, not guns per se… And isn’t it good to see politicians being grilled – really grilled – by a news anchor, compared to the supine approach of UK journalists?
Our heartfelt sympathy goes to the injured and relatives of the dead, while we pray for the repose of the souls of all those who lost their lives in this senseless attack. May they rest in peace…
Pope Francis has attacked President Trump for his … well… commitment to the Law of the Land… Click here to read more, and then watch the short video clip below.
Is Pope Francis correct to attack President Trump over DACA?
There’s certainly a school of belief that God does sometimes express his wrath through natural disasters, and there are biblical verses to quote: “The LORD Almighty will come with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with whirlwind and tempest and flames of a devouring fire.” (Isaiah 29:6)
But as a punishment for not believing a scientific theory? C’mon!
As we reflect on the significance – if any – of these terrible hurricanes, let us remember two things; firstly, of course, to pray for the poor people suffering, at this time, and secondly, one thing that has not made (and is unlikely to make) the anti-Trump broadcasting news here in the UK – that President Trump donated one million dollars of his personal money to the people of Texas and Louisiana.
Over to you – are these hurricanes a punishment for not “believing in” global warming?
By far, my favourite news anchors and political ccommentators are those across “The Pond” in the U.S.A. And my all-time favourite is Tucker Carlson. Watch the hilarious interview below, to see why…
As our regular bloggers know, every now and then we take a rest from the serious stuff and enjoy a “good clean fun” thread where we post jokes and entertaining stories/videos. This is one of those “fun” threads, in the midst of the serious topic threads, although there is a serious note to be struck with regards to the media, generally so easily fooled by nonsense “news” (think transgenderism, among other things.) Tucker is never afraid to challenge the politically correct and other nonsense – and this interview is no exception; tell us what you most enjoyed about it.
Father Gruner, RIP, tirelessly pointed out that the only part of the Fatima prophecies not to have been fulfilled to date was Our Lady’s warning about the annihilation of nations – click here to read what, precisely, is meant by this “annihilation”.
Are we about to see – to our horror – the fulfilment of that prophecy?
