  • FOR THE CARE OF SOULS [Catholic Caucus]

    First Things ^ | 5 . 18 . 21 | James S. Wall
    In the past few months, several Catholic bishops have issued statements on the question of whether to publicly deny pro-abortion politicians the Eucharist. I am grateful to all my brother bishops who have courageously spoken out on this thorny subject. When bishops share according to their conscience and listen to others' points of view, they foster genuine dialogue—a necessary step on the path to unity. I would therefore like to respond to Bishop Robert McElroy’s recent essay, “The Eucharist is being weaponized for political ends. This must not happen.” His title suggests that political motives are driving the bishops' current...

    A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in Montana when suddenly a brand-new 2021 BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust. The driver, a young man named Cliff in a Brioni® suit, Gucci® shoes, RayBan® sunglasses and YSL® tie, leaned out the window and asked the cowboy, "If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?" Bud looks at the man, who obviously is a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, "Sure, why not?"...
  • Florida Seeks Immediate Injunction To Overturn CDC Order, Get Ships Sailing Again

    Florida is seeking an immediate injunction to overturn the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) order that is keeping cruise ships from sailing from U.S. ports. Two weeks ago, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Attorney General Ashley Moody filed a lawsuit seeking the same result. Last week, Alaska’s governor announced that his state would join the lawsuit. But as the weeks pass without the federal government or CDC filing arguments in the case, Florida has taken another step to ramp up the pressure. On April 22, Florida filed a motion in a district court in Tampa, asking for an...

    How did a filthy rich guy bridge the gap between himself and us regular workaday Americans? First, he's basically a workaday guy at heart too. Like most of us, by his own admission he's "basically cheap." But most of all, he's funny and a smile, or even better, a laugh will always be the shortest distance between people. It wasn't until a kind patriot ("LC"...you're famous!) sent me four books by Donald Trump that I finally realized just how hilarious he can be. Reading them, I expected to learn a lot. I did not expect to laugh a lot. But...

    Congresswoman Doris Matsui and U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal have sent a letter to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, urging her to strictly enforce recently issued safety guidance under the Framework for Conditional Sailing Order (CSO) and immediately halt cruises if outbreaks occur onboard. They lawmakers said the premature resumption of cruise ship operations could threaten public safety and increase the spread of the coronavirus, "Given the potential for a large, virus spreading event on a cruise ship, the CDC appropriately issued its No-Sail Order to suspend cruise ship operations," they wrote in their...

    The number of Coronavirus (CV) cases in the U.S. has decreased significantly, but instead the focus has been on the number of masks to wear and that we’re in the middle of a “dark winter.”The current seven-day average of cases is down by 75% from the high, and is now at the same level as in mid-October:Source: Author’s graph of CDC dataWe might wonder why cases are down, and whether this will continue: Cases fell last summer, yet the fall brought an increase that rightly concerned everyone.But what if cases continue to drop, which is what Johns Hopkins medical professor...

    In the year 1900, the median age of Americans at the age of death was 49 years old. In the year 2018, that figure had risen to above age 80. As our life spans increase, no one thinks beans about dementia-free septuagenarians running for president, and soon enough, an octogenarian, someone in his or her 80s, will run for president. That brings us to the issue of term limits. When the Founding Fathers first drafted the Constitution setting out the ground rules as to who could be a senator or congressional representative, they couldn't easily have foreseen the advanced life...

    The Grammy Awards "TV Viewers" nose dived in 2021 down to the lowest ever, 8.8 million TV viewers. 2020 saw 18.7 million viewers...and, 2019 registered 19.9 TV viewers.

The Academy Awards of 2021 is approaching with expected TV Viewer Ratings of vast decline. The music and film industry has killed themselves. Americans of all ages across the board could care less about these "elitist blabbering,ego insane, folks!!! The only three Media TV stations to gain large number of...

    The Epoch Times ^ | March 13, 2021 | Roger L. Simon
    By now every person awake, as opposed to “woke,” knows the dangers of Big Tech. Through algorithmic manipulation, de-platforming and other noxious off-shoots of the tyrannical cancel culture these companies are changing history, reversing freedoms hard won since the Magna Carta, while having an unconscious numbing effect on our brains that eventually would render us a race of drones. Something has to be done. The federal government seems to be able to do no more than hold hearings. Those that might actually want to do something, like Sens. Hawley and Blackburn, are thwarted by the Democrats who, though they pay...
  • COVID Cases in the U.S. Drop by 77 Percent. Politicians and Public Health Bureaucrats Hardest Hit.

    PJ Media ^ | 02/19/2021 | Rick Moran
    Over the last six weeks, new cases of infection of the coronavirus have dropped an astonishing 77 percent. Dr. Marty Makary, a professor at Johns Hopkins, wrote an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal and observes: “If a medication slashed cases by 77%, we’d call it a miracle pill.”Has the number of infections really dropped by 77 percent in 6 weeks?According to the CDC COVID Data Tracker, there were 283,640 new cases on January 2, 2021. As of February 17, there were 69,165 cases. That represents a drop of 75.05 percent in six weeks — for all you fact-checkers out...

    Yesterday, the intrepid and extraordinary Mike Lindell laid out the PROOF that the 2020 election was stolen from President Trump and other Republicans running for office. It was explosive in its findings and laid out the exact numbers stolen from Trump which were transferred to Biden & Company meticulously and listed the exact numbers, when the thefts occurred and who stole them…down to the individual IP addresses that did so. 60% of them came from China. The evidence is both overwhelming and with any honesty that may be left…irrefutable. Thus far, however, the media are ignoring the findings and politicians...

    I have never seen as much anger in the United States as I am seeing right now, and that greatly saddens me. No matter what happens, we should always love one another. Unfortunately, most Americans on both sides of the political spectrum are seething with hate right now. Leading up to the election in November, the left and the right were primarily attacking each other with angry words, but now the level of physical violence that we are witnessing is extremely alarming. The violence at the U.S. Capitol was just another example of the violence that stretched all throughout 2020...

Gavin Newsom (D) and San Francisco Mayor London Breed eating out, and Austin Mayor Steve Adler (D) urging residents to stay at home while he was in Mexico by stating that “Even the good politicians are messing up. And I don’t know what to do at this point if even the good guys are messing up.”

    I will not be lectured by people who say that eating in a restaurant with health protocols is riskier than shutting down the largest economy in the world.My parents and in-laws haven’t seen their grandkids in nearly a year. Because we live states apart, the most time we spend together is during the holidays and a week in the summer. Due to the lockdown this year, the grandparents have only been able to see our kids during video calls. It could be worse; some dear friends of ours buried a parent during the lockdown with no guests or funeral, and...

    Honest Abe answered a question regarding his Knowledge and Wisdom, despite lacking formal education credentials: "Most of what I know, I just picked up". I do a set of mental exercises each day in hopes that my mind will last as long as my body. One such exercise is to calculate how many days I have been breathing air. Yesterday when I was brushing my teeth I did that exercise and the answer was I am 26,666 days old. I had this thought about the mark of the beast (devil)...6666. I felt this foreboding about yesterday. I tuned into Fox...

    China has reacted warmly to Russian President Vladimir Putin's suggestion that the two nations could one day upgrade their strategic partnership to an official military alliance, thus uniting two of the United States' top global competitors. "You can imagine everything," Putin responded when asked during his discussion Thursday at the Valdai Discussion Club whether a military alliance could be imagined between China and Russia. The Russian leader explained that the reason such a pact had not already been forged had nothing to do with reservations on either side, but a lack of necessity. "We have always assumed that our relations...
