Yeah, Jim Jordan

Jordan nails it.

Not only does he call for a clean repeal and not just Obamacare Light, he also calls out his colleagues in Congress to do what they said they would do.  It doesn’t stop there: Every Republican in Congress voted for this bill back when they knew Obama would veto it.  Now that President Trump might actually sign the repeal, they don’t seem to be able to locate certain parts of their anatomy.

If only life imitated art.

Obama: The Legacy of the Useful Idiot.

Barack Hussein Obama has, is, and apparently always will be a useful idiot.  His behavior in office is horrid, earning himself the title of the Worst President in History, a fact for which the previous record holder, Jimmy Carter, is eternally grateful.

But Obama’s consistent willingness to serve as the lackey for the Left, his commitment to promulgating evil, and his shameless funding by the likes of George Soros make Obama a threat that President Trump (and we) should ignore at his own peril.


His actions since leaving office are both unprecedented and unpresidential:

Barack Obama is turning his new home in the posh Kalorama section of the nation’s capital – just two miles away from the White House – into the nerve center of the mounting insurgency against his successor, President Donald J. Trump.

Obama’s goal, according to a close family friend, is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment.

And Obama is being aided in his political crusade by his longtime consigliere, Valerie Jarrett, who has moved into the 8,200-square-foot, $5.3-million Kaloroma mansion with  the former president and Michelle Obama, long time best friends.

Jarrett played a vital – if at times low-key – role in the Obama presidency. She lived in the White House, dined with the Obamas, and help shape his domestic and foreign policies.

President Trump has shown his willingness to double down against his critics, something that has  from my lofty perspective, has worked out pretty well for him.  Because I am nothing if not helpful, I suggest the President Trump take the following steps:

  1. Deport George Soros and seize any accounts over which Soros or any of his organizations/affiliates/surrogates have control that can be linked to any subversive activities, including hiring agitators to disrupt town halls, block highways, destroy property, etc.  Use the funds obtained from such seizures to build the wall.
  2. Continue to purge the State Department and the Intelligence Agencies of the residual Obama devotees.  March them to the door today!
  3. Direct Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate whether Obama is violating any federal laws.
  4. Direct Attorney General Jeff Sessions to seek an indictment against Hillary Clinton.  It’s just and it might just get the Obama/Jarrett cabal to count their chickens before they’re fried.

Barack Hussein Obama has nothing but the legacy of a useful idiot.  He is not fit to be an ex-president.

A Lenten Observation. God please save me from myself.

Lent is an ideal time to do some interior reflection, to realize we’re not the person our dog believes us to be.   Reflecting as I try to do on the price that has been paid for my eternal soul and my own pathetic attachment to sin, I saw this:


Deer gets a small taste of freedom

God be merciful to me a sinner. And, if it’s not too much trouble, save me from myself.

Some interesting (good?) news from the Vatican.

The headline reads:

The news is there might be some Pro Bergoglio cardinals who want to avoid schism.

Who knew?

Inconsequential, non-existent Muslim terrorism.

I have several reasons for going on as I do in regard to Paragraph 841 of the CCC.  Bergoglio just added another:

In an impassioned address Friday, Pope Francis denied the existence of Islamic terrorism, while simultaneously asserting that “the ecological crisis is real.”

“Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. They do not exist,” Francis said in his speech to a world meeting of populist movements.

What he apparently meant is that not all Christians are terrorists and not all Muslims are terrorists—a fact evident to all—yet his words also seemed to suggest that no specifically Islamic form of terrorism exists in the world, an assertion that stands in stark contradiction to established fact.

Read the rest of the article here.

Uncle Bergoglio, tell me the story about the non-existent Muslim terrorism.  That story made me laugh my head off.  It had a similar effect on a few thousand of our brethren.

You know, it’s darn near impossible to defeat an enemy that you can’t identify.  It’s even harder if you deny your enemy exists.  It’s impossible if you assume a kinship (that does not exist) with your enemy.

Anyone have Bergoglio’s email address?  I’d like to send him a different picture everyday of Muslim non-existent terrorism.

Working on CCC Paragraph 841 v.2.0

The Church’s relationship with the Muslims. “The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day.”

Catechism of the Catholic Church, Paragraph 841.

I was discussing Paragraph 841 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) with a friend of mine.  Pretty much, we both believe it to be – shall we say – an inaccurate recitation of reality.  But we differ slightly as to why it’s in there the way it is.

He said it was just a marketing tool.  My first thought to his comment was if there’s one thing the Catholic Church could really use about now is a Sales and Marketing Department.

Then I offered, “Well, that’s the first time I’ve heard the idea that Paragraph 841 was ‘marketing.’  I’m not sure that’s exactly something to be proud of.  I mean, it’s certainly horrid theology (Paragraph 841, I mean) but it’s even worse – marketing blasphemy, if you will – in terms of marketing.”

For crying out loud, has anyone, ever, on the whole planet, at any time in history, or will such a moron exist in the future say “”Gee golly, I wasn’t going to even consider the Catholic Church or attempt to defend any of her teachings, but then I saw this wonderful, delightful, ecumenical, inclusive Paragraph 841 and it changed my life forever! Where do I sign?”

On the other hand, I know at least one rather large family that (if anything) was impeded from entering the Church over this Paragraph (and perhaps a misapprehension of the authority of the Catechism as well).

One of the responses I got to my What the heck’s with Francis Beckwith article was that we don’t need to be arguing over semantics when people are dying (referring to the massive scale torture, beheading, etc. of those who “profess to worship the same God.”).  My response was, “Dear Snowflake, words mean things.  It is precisely because people are being killed (I don’t think the passive “dying” is precise enough) that we need to be arguing over semantics.”

A friend poked at me a bit (rightly) asserting that I get “riled up” about this particular issue.  If I have one disagreement with that characterization by him it’s that it is misleadingly understated.  I mean, these murderous thugs are the only group reproducing at greater than replacement rates; they’ve become the majority in several countries in Europe; they are invading our own country, aided and abetted by our courts.

And you don’t have to speculate as to their aims.  Watch a video (or 10) to see what these rat bastards are all about.  Not only will they tell you, they’ll show you.  I watched one such beheading and my first thought was, “you know, I really think I could be a sniper.”  and if you hear Cardinal Burke use that line, just remember you read it here first.

At the risk of being characterized as being overly dramatic (claiming I get that way when riled, no doubt), I don’t recall a time since my higher level of prolife activism (a dozen or so arrests, a month in jail for one of them, representing Paul Hill, writing a law review article/Master’s thesis that use of such force would be justified, etc.) when I have taken so much flak.  At least in the prolife context, most Catholics were in general agreement.  Now, semantics being what they are, Catholics are a big part of the problem.

So, in an effort to be a problem solver and not just a riled up whiner, I am working on a Revised Paragraph 841.  Now, remember, it’s just a draft but you might want to make your comments before it gets enshrined in the new Catechism.  It’s coming out just as soon as this Bergoglio interloper exits the scene (Maranatha!).  To wit:

The Church’s relationship with the Muslims.  Often called “the people of the conjugal goat”, Muslims profess to hold to the faith of Abraham.  Of course, an 8th grade logic class would remind anyone that “professing” and “actually doing” are not the same thing.  Muslims, together with us, are in desperate need of – and wholly dependent on – the mercy of Christ who will judge mankind on the last day.  God’s plan of salvation includes all people, for all time; just like it included equally Moses and Pharaoh.  One was for divine blessing and deliverance; the other, to show forth the power of God through his temporal and eternal destruction. (See Exodus 6-12; Romans 8).  For the people of the True God, the so-called “religion” of Islam must be understood to be not a religion at all, but a political system that co-ops bits of religious jargon.  Individually, those enslaved to this political system should be prayed for and evangelized that they might inherit the rewards of Moses rather than the fate of Pharaoh, but culturally and temporally, the faithful Christian is duty bound to pray against and oppose the political system called Islam as not only false, but wicked, .  This has long been understood by the Church in varying ways through the centuries.  (See, e.g., the good and holy example of Pope St. Urban of blessed memory.)

Yeah, I know, it’s a little long, but there is serious need of repair.  And I get long winded when I’m riled.


Cardinal Burke gets his talking points here.

See for yourself here and here.

OK.  Maybe not.  But I can dream.  They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

He sure does sound, how do you say, familiar:

The ultimate goal of Islam is world conquest and the “supine” West is only helping it achieve that aim, a senior cardinal has said.

Speaking in an interview with Italian newspaper Il Giornale, Cardinal Raymond Burke accused Westerners of being too weak to acknowledge the incompatibility of Christianity and Islam.

“It is clear that Muslims have as their ultimate goal conquest and power over the world,” the American cardinal said. “Islam, through sharia, their law, will rule the world and permit violence against infidels, such as Christians. But we find it hard to recognise this reality and to respond by defending the Christian faith.”

“Many people do not understand what Islam really is,” he added. “They create these slogans: we all believe in the same God, we are all united by love and so on. It’s not true.”

Planned Parenthood and the Abortion Quotas

Not just liars, lying bastards.

Tell me again, the part of them worshiping the same God.

Notice the picture of Christ, with his head on a pike.

Yeah, you keep using that word “worship”.  I don’t think it means what you think it means.
