    White Double ALTHOUGH MARY’S GLORY is within her, beauty appears also in the garment wherewith she is clad: a mysterious robe woven of the virtues of the Saints, who owe to her both their justice and their reward. As every grace comes to us through our Mother, so all the glory of heaven converges towards that of the Queen. Now among the blessed souls there are some more immediately connected with the holy Virgin. Prevented by the peculiarly tender love of the Mother of grace, they left all things, when on earth, to run after the odor of the...

    White Double THE PERIOD INTERVENING between the Purification of our blessed Lady and Ash Wednesday (when it occurs at its latest date) gives us thirty-six days; and these offer us feasts of every order of saint. The apostles have given us St. Mathias, and St. Peter’s Chair at Antioch; the martyrs have sent us, from their countless choir, Simeon, Blase, Valentine, Faustinus and Jovita, Perpetua and Felicitas, and the forty soldiers of Sebaste, whose feast is kept tomorrow; the holy pontiffs have been represented by Andrew Corsini, and Peter Damnian, who, like Thomas of Aquin, is one of the...

    Has ISIS awakened Europe to reality or not? The love story between the Eagles of Death Metal and France lasted just six months. That American band was performing at Le Bataclan theater on 13th of November, when two ISIS suicide bombers exterminated 89 people in a turkey shoot (including Nick Alexander, Eagles' merchandising manager). For weeks, France rallied around this group of anarchists from California with their culture of middle America. Now the Eagles of Death Metal are toxic in France and two music festivals, Rock en Seine and Cabaret Vert, just canceled their performance. "Being in total disagreement with...
  • Belgium: Blame France for Depardieu Move

    The Local ^ | 17 Dec 2012
    Belgium's foreign minister said Monday that France was solely to blame after its top actor Gérard Depardieu threatened to give up his passport following a move to seek tax exile in the neighbouring country. Depardieu puts Paris mansion on market (13 Dec 12) Ayrault slams tax exiles after Depardieu move (12 Dec 12) Depardieu moves to Belgium over tax hikes (10 Dec 12) Didier Reynders said his country must not be made a "scapegoat" for Depardieu's move, which the French prime minister suggested was an unpatriotic act. "There have been no measures taken by Belgium to attract any French national,"...
  • Progressives Seek To Deflect From Frances Fox Piven Remarks By Calling Glenn Beck Anti-Semitic

    I love when progressives who’ve stood against Israeli settlements and “zionists” suddenly find compassion for Jewish people, even if it’s manufactured compassion to feign straw man outrage at conservatives. Baby steps! While watching this interview with Frances Fox Piven posted below, I momentarily missed Olbermann. Sure, he was a far-left partisan, but he was an entertaining broadcaster, something from which his socialist views cannot detract. Here is MSNBC sub Cenk Uygur in a bizarre interview with Piven right after he tries to make Glenn Beck out to be anti-semitic because some of the people he criticizes are or may be...

    Street protests against American and British military action in Iraq have escalated into attacks by Muslim youths on Jewish demonstrators, sparking fears of a new wave of anti-Semitism across France. –London Sunday Telegraph, April 6, 2003 It would take many months for David de Rothschild to realize that what was happening to Jews in France was a powerful predictor of a war that was coming down history’s long stream. In May 2001, when he and a group of French business leaders arrived in Jerusalem for meetings with Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and members of his Cabinet, he reluctantly agreed to...

    A FEW days ago Georges Bigot, a French firefighter, was standing with colleagues on a street in a suburb of Paris waiting for reinforcements to help put out a fire started by rioters. Suddenly a television fell out of the sky in front of him. It had been heaved over a balcony eight floors up and shattered on the ground. “Have you ever seen a television exploding on the pavement?” asked Bigot wearily as he stood under a light drizzle. “Well, it gave me quite a shock.” As he spoke, thick clouds of smoke billowed from a textile warehouse set...

    MIAMI - Frances Langford, whose steamy rendition of "I'm in the Mood for Love" captivated soldiers stationed overseas on Bob Hope's tours during World War II, died Monday. She was 92. Langford died at her home in Jensen Beach, her lawyer Evans Crary Jr. said. She had been ill with congestive heart failure, he said. Langford, a recording artist, radio star and actress from the 1930s to 1950s, joined Hope's troupe to boost wartime morale at military bases and hospitals through Great Britain, Italy, North Africa and the South Pacific. She entertained a new generation of soldiers in Korea and...

Apparently you don't have to get hit by a hurricane to get hurricane money from Uncle Sam. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has paid out $28 million in storm funds to more than 12,000 Miami-Dade residents, none of whom were in the path of a single hurricane this year. Many live where there was little, if any, weather damage. Among the items replaced so far are 5,260 TV sets, 1,440 air conditioners, 423 personal computers, 1,091 microwave ovens, and two boat...

    BUSH'S US$50M BAILOUT Grenada, Jamaica, Haiti on rescue list Thursday, September 30th 2004 Victims in hurricane-ravaged islands such as Grenada, Jamaica and Haiti may soon have something to smile about, if a request from US President George Bush for $50 million to aid in international disaster and famine relief is granted by the US Congress. In a press release yesterday, the United States Embassy said the funds for the Caribbean formed part of a $7.1 billion supplemental budget request to assist US and international regions which were heavily damaged this hurricane season. So far, the United States has provided US$3.8...

    LAKE WALES -- On his way to the first presidential debate in Miami, President Bush will stop in storm-battered Lake Wales today. A White House spokesman said the president will arrive at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa this afternoon and travel by helicopter to Lake Wales. His exact schedule was not released, but reporters and photographers accompanying him were told to be at the base at 1 p.m. for the short flight to Polk County. The St. Petersburg Times said Bush will take a walking tour of orange groves. Polk County's citrus industry has been devastated by the series...

    ...But none of that impressed me the way Jeb Bush did. Not for standing tall and radiating calm in crisis - you expect a governor to do that - but for a gesture that most Floridians might gloss over or even resent. As he has done with this season's other hurricanes, whenever he had a press briefing at the state Emergency Operations Center in Tallahassee, Bush explained himself not only in English but in Spanish. Then, according to his spokesman, Jacob DiPietre, Bush did something many of us never saw. He repeated his message in interviews with Spanish language TV...

We had major, major damage.. all shingles, all tar paper; all ceiling down on the floor (save one room)along with blown in insulation. Major water damage. You can see all the tape seams on wall drywall.. can see where it is nailed. The adjuster says all the wallboard is still good in spite of this. He even tried to prove the drywall was still good by pushing on it. His hand went...

    Warnings for the next hurricane to hit the United States have already been issued -- for Washington, D.C. Taxpayers should keep an eye on the aftermath. After most disasters, Congress acts like a whirlwind to rush to the aid of victims, as lawmakers should. A few members of Congress are also quick to take advantage of the situation to tack money for their pet projects onto such bills. "Congress simply has no shame," warned Tom Schatz, president of Citizens Against Government Waste. "Knowing that this is most likely the last opportunity to bring home the bacon before the election, members...
