From an unexpected source we get an incredibly astute observation about the accuracy and intelligence in MSM’s reporting of A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G noteworthy:
“It’s so far off it’s not even wrong. One is left paralyzed facing the sheer Himalayas of ignorance that lie behind such a concatenation of words…. leaves one numb and helpless for words. It’s like watching that same sophomore burst into a chat room discussion on relativity among trained physicists to say, “If you’re so smart, then tell me how light can be a particle and a wave at the same time. Huh? Huh? Why don’t you learn some real science? When are you going to admit you are just borrowing the best parts of what Gene Roddenberry told us long ago!”
We’ve watched their idiocy and games with Ron Paul, a lesser ‘star’ perhaps, but all the same- brilliant, loyal, consistent, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and a truth speaker.
Both Ron Paul and Pope Benedict XVI are men of integrity, understand what genuine authority and responsibility mean, both appreciate and protect important heritages. They are both men of deep-seated wisdom and COURAGE facing some incredible dangers to humanity with wisdom, respect and compassion: The Pope stands before Islam shining out the light of Christ, of intellect and reason, of human rights, of cooperation, of love. Ron Paul stands before impending Fascism shining out the light of the Constitution, of Liberty, of Freedom, honest and sound money, of the RIGHT to LIFE, LIBERTY and the PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. These are the TWO GREATEST CHALLENGES OF OUR TIMES. Both men advocate for the dignity and worth of humanity. The young love them both DEARLY.
In both men some profoundly important issues of our times and days are being confronted with wisdom and experience. We have yet to understand the magnitude of what they are doing and its meaning for the entire planet. Both men are ignored, maligned, misunderstood, mischaracterized, flamed, abused and put down by the mainstream media. So much so that those who appreciate these men are often digging for the aspirin! There is, of course, that pit stuck in the stomach, that nagging feeling, that tells us ‘maybe it isn’t just ignorance, but malice for every last one of us human beings.’
Rev 11:9-11 For three and a half days men from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial. The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth. But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them.”
God bless both Ron Paul and Pope Benedict XVI. Truth WILL out.
So the Pope is coming to America, and McCain hopes to turn this into a big ‘turnaround’ for his candidacy with Catholics. Catholics have been leaving the GOP in droves, and no wonder.
The pathetic thing is that there isn’t anywhere else to go, so they’ve been settling for the Democratic party.
Whether you like him or not, at least Pope Benedict XVI will be holding McCain’s feet to the fire- if you want Catholic support, you must have fidelity to some conservative principles, a thing that NO candidate has except Ron Paul. This Holy Father has the guts to face Islam, you’ll be nothing, McCain!
Tell us, McCain, about your commitment to the Just War Doctrine.
Its a very simple set of 7 CRITICAL points.
Tell us about your commitment to LIFE. That’s very simple too, expecially since the Democrats are for even infanticide and forced abortions by government, as in China. Population control is their mantra, though there isn’t any justifiable proof that the planet, run justly, couldn’t support every human being alive today.
Tell us about why you think 100 years of war is acceptable in ANY way. Tell us why we should forego the Bill of Rights and the Constitution because we’re told to be afraid of third world guerillas!
Most importantly, tell us why we should EVER vote for ANYONE that believes that pre-emptive first strike nuclear war is justifiable and ‘on the table.’
Not going to happen, unless there is a BIG conversion on your part, but your bosses won’t buy it. Neither would we, to be honest.
The truth is that no Catholic and, indeed, no Christian, can justifiably vote for the roster of candidates that are running now, excepting Ron Paul.
The idea that party loyalty is more important than our souls is preposterous. The idea that party loyalty is more important than our Constitutional rights is ridiculous.
Time to wake up and smell the coffee, GOP. Your party is just about finished, and good riddance to bad rubbish.
Mother Theresa said ‘The fruit of abortion is nuclear war.’ I have repeated this many times here and in other places relating to this illegal and unjust war.
Those in the Pro-Life movement KNOW this by HEART.
Yet, despite the clear evidence that our country is prepared to launch ANOTHER illegal war, against the Just War Doctrine, and a NUCLEAR ONE at that, the pro-life movement is prepared to vote for one of the most heinous republicans in the party, John McCain.
Father Pavone, of Priests for Life, has come out ENDORSING John McCain for President. Supporting McCain is supporting Planned Parenthood and always has been, no matter what lies come from his forked tongue. Planned Parenthood is LAUGHING all the way to their altars of human sacrifice.
That is like saying, “I despise the roots, but WOW- the FRUIT is awesome! I ENDORSE THIS TREE!”
Pope Benedict, in response to our death-dealing times, points us to our traditions and brings us to Jesus.
At the Eighth Station who, in Luke:23:27- 30 PROMISED to avenge abortion: “there followed him a great multitude of the people, and of women who bewailed and lamented him. But Jesus turning to them said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me but for yourselves and for your children. For behold, the days are coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never gave suck! Then they will begin to say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us’; and to the hills, ‘cover us.'”
Since our war is a violation of EVERY SINGLE TENET OF THE JUST WAR DOCTRINE, and a vote for ANY of these three candidates (McCain, Clinton or Obama) is clearly a vote for social injustice, then a vote or endorsement for any of these people is a MORTAL SIN.
Fr Pavone isn’t the only one. All over the country, priests and ministers in every Christian denomination are FOR THE WAR.
Pro-life conservatives everywhere are resignedly voting for McCain in spite of all REASON to the contrary, and despite a viable and genuine conservative candidate that has proven himself for over thirty years.
As if McCain were the ONLY choice. WHO HAVE THEY SOLD OUT TO? Why IDOLIZE the parties when LIVES ARE AT STAKE?
Why? They have bought into the global deception of the puppet media and their bosses.
Does ANYONE entertain the idea that Ron Paul would appoint non-constitutional judges to the bench?
I hope and pray their eyes are opened. We are sowing what we are reaping, and it is horrible fruit.
