Biden’s new “Disinformation Governance Board” would make “Big Brother” proud

WASHINGTON (AP) …The board will be led by disinformation expert Nina Jankowicz, who has researched Russian misinformation tactics and online harassment.

During the 2020 presidential campaign, Biden, a Democrat, repeatedly said he would push tech companies, including Facebook, to crack down harder on misinformation and conspiracy theories that have overwhelmed social media and its users.

Dozens of Republican lawmakers and pundits took to social media on Wednesday to widely criticize the new board and call for it to be disbanded.

“Rather than police our border, Homeland Security has decided to make policing Americans’ speech its top priority,” a tweet from Missouri’s U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley read, in part. “They’re creating a Disinformation Board.”

Congresswoman Greene “unloads” on corrupt Catholic Bishops, stands up to Catholic League Bill Donohue’s criticism

Complete transcript:

MARJORIE GREENE

Representing the 14th District of Georgia

WASHINGTON D.C. — Today, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene issued the following statement:

“Today, the Catholic League’s Bill Donohue accused me of slandering Catholics and Catholicism in an interview I gave to Michael Voris at Church Militant. Nothing could be further from the truth, and he must apologize promptly and publicly for these words.

Donohue should have called my office, or had a staffer check Google, before firing off a hysterical-sounding statement. He doesn’t know this, but I am a cradle Catholic. I was born into the church, raised in it and I was married in the Church.

With great sorrow, and unwavering faith in Jesus Christ, I stopped attending Catholic Mass when I became a mother, because I realized that I could not trust the Church leadership to protect my children from pedophiles, and that they harbored monsters even in their own ranks.

It’s the church leadership I was referring to when I invoked the Devil. The bishops know that, but had their loyal lapdog pretend I was being disrespectful about the faith. Just so we’re clear, bishops, when I said “controlled by Satan,” I wasn’t talking about the Catholic Church. I was talking about you.

The Catholic Church must throw out these monsters instead of lecturing the people its own bishops have driven away.

I refuse to use kinder, gentler language as Bill Donohue might prefer when I talk about his disgusting and corrupt friends, who have made him rich with the donations from ordinary churchgoing Catholics.

I love God and I love Jesus Christ. Is the same true of the scheming bureaucrats in miters who preach the gospel while turning a blind eye to the abuse of innocents? That’s for God to determine—and punish. But I can tell you that it’s the bishops‘ wickedness that has driven me away from the Church, and I make no apologies for saying so.

America’s Catholic bishops are some of the worst in the world. They have lied, deceived and committed despicable criminal acts for decades, driving millions out of the Church, causing children to kill themselves, emotionally crippling others and sentencing countless victims to lives of deep mental pain.

The tragedy is that America is full of pious, churchgoing Catholics and kind, brilliant priests. There are even a few good bishops. The faithful deserve better pastoral leadership, and bishops who don’t smear and punish good priests for being “too Catholic.”

Parents have no way to tell the good from the bad under the current leadership: We are left to wonder whether our parish priest is one of the predators too.

The bishops are also busy destroying our nation using taxpayer money to advocate for the illegal invasion across our borders. They dare to dress up Democrat vandalism and lawlessness as somehow “religious,” which perhaps explains their distaste for me. What more can we expect from criminals and abusers living unaccountable lives of luxury funded by the rest of us, draped in fine linens while choirboys are raped.

I myself, baptized and married in the Catholic Church, left because I would not submit the spiritual and physical livelihood of my children to these monsters. Bill Donohue, by contrast, makes a million dollars a year, partly from sending out emails to defend corrupt bishops. He has done nothing in his long career to reform the appalling state of the clergy.

If you think I’m exaggerating, Donohue breezily claimed on television recently that the abuse crisis in the church was “over,” relying on data provided by the same bishops who rake in taxpayer money in the name of our Heavenly Father yet have still, somehow, bankrupted the Church, and who spend donations on lawsuits to silence their victims.

Forgive me if I decline to take lectures from the man bishops send out to do their dirty work when their delicate feelings are hurt. I stand by my statement, and I will continue to pray for the urgently needed reforms of, and repairs to, the Bride of Christ.

Until the people running the Catholic Church stop abusing children and stop covering up the abuse of children, I will continue to hold them to account. And I’ll keep naming and shaming the craven enablers who write their press releases, too. I know they’ve made you rich, Bill, but before you meet Almighty God, you might want to consider new clients.”

What constitutes “grooming”?

Grooming is a complicated system of behavior. What is it? Most basically, to groom is to prepare or train someone else for a particular activity. In the current political context, “grooming” certainly — and accurately — connotes sexually inappropriate ends, especially as its most recent usage was entirely swept up in the #MeToo movement. Even as grooming discourse reached its apparent zenith a few years ago, rape was not always the intended or actual end of the story. Rather, it was understood that to be a groomer was to actively participate in the broader system of manipulation. Ghislaine Maxwell and similar “recruiters” may not have been doing the raping, but they were all certainly engaged in grooming.

mRNA vaccines promote sustained synthesis of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.

The spike protein is neurotoxic, and it impairs DNA repair mechanisms.

Suppression of type I interferon responses results in impaired innate immunity.

The mRNA vaccines potentially cause increased risk to infectious diseases and cancer.

Codon optimization results in G-rich mRNA that has unpredictable complex effects.

Time to go “Old Testament” on Wokeness, LBGTQ…XYZ and Big Media

The Bible uses the term “latter times” as it refers to worldwide changes that affect the culture, ideologies, politics and just about every major part of everyday life. As in the famous boiling frog apologue, it seems that the changes come a little at a time, almost imperceptibly to set themselves into the culture almost stealthily and un-noticed.

But the result is always the same – death and destruction.

This is what the bible calls the doctrine of devils. Don’t be confused by the apparently religious terminology, the word doctrine simply means, teaching.

Everything we teach our children is at the lowest common denominator, a doctrine. How much of that doctrine came from the minds of hateful devils who unlike Divinity have no love at all for mankind?

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.” (1 Tim 4:1)

Examples of the incognito infusion of the doctrines of devils is popping up everywhere. Like the Paul Baird Middle School in Massachusetts where teachers told students not to tell parents about their transitions and plans to reset their own gender.

Any resemblance is of course, purely coincidental.

A “lose-lose” proposition for the Catholic Church

No one should have any illusions about what kind of societal forces are arrayed against the Church—they are very real, and very threatening. 

Many Catholics of a traditional bent, myself among them, sometimes chafe at the way “mainstream” Catholics have been unwilling to take a more critical look at Vatican II and the reforms that followed the council.

Indeed, I have to say I agree with the leaders of the German Synodal Way that Vatican II, at least in a practical sense, has failed, and the Church should not repudiate it so much as cease to treat it as a “super dogma,” as Joseph Ratzinger once put it. But until something else can, in practice, keep the Church from dissolving into schism, such criticism will remain on the fringes of ecclesial life.

The awful truth

Who Moved The Stone? by Frank Morison

This study is in some ways so unusual and provocative that the writer thinks it desirable to state here very briefly how the book came to take its present form.

In one sense it could have taken no other, for it is essentially a confession, the inner story of a man who originally set out to write one kind of book and found himself compelled by the sheer force of circumstances to write another.

It is not that the facts themselves altered, for they are recorded imperishably in the monuments and in the pages of human history. But the interpretation to be put upon the facts underwent a change. Somehow the perspective shifted –not suddenly, as in a flash of insight or inspiration, but slowly, almost imperceptibly, by the very stubbornness of the facts themselves.

The book as it was originally planned was left high and dry, like those Thames barges when the great river goes out to meet the incoming sea. The writer discovered one day that not only could he no longer write the book as he had once conceived it, but that he would not if he could…

“Gender Inclusive” Holy Thursday Footwashing: No need to ask “What Would Jesus Do?” when we can simply read the Gospel to see what Jesus actually did.

… according to the Church’s rubrics, only the feet of males are to be washed. The question, then, concerns why the rubrics for the ritual command that viri selecti—“chosen males”—have their feet washed, and not women.

Basis for Holy Orders

The answer is that the footwashing scene in the Gospel of John is not only meant to be an example of humble service, but primarily a record of the institution of the Christian priesthood and thus the Scriptural root of the sacrament of holy orders.

… What is often overlooked is that the apostles are a special class unto themselves. They are not just disciples like all Christians are disciples; they are unique. Jesus chooses twelve of them for a reason, to suggest that the Church they will lead will continue the redemptive work of Israel’s twelve tribes in the world. In Catholic (and Orthodox) understanding, the disciples are the first priests and bishops, and thus what Jesus says to them and does with them may not be of direct exemplary relevance for all Christians. For instance, when Jesus gives Peter alone the keys to the kingdom in Matthew 16, it does not mean that every Christian has the keys to the kingdom and the power to bind and loose.

Something more than mere exemplarism is going on in John 13. Jesus’ washing of the disciples’ feet has sacerdotal significance; Jesus institutes the priesthood.

… Fr. Jerome Neyrey, SJ, longtime professor of New Testament at Notre Dame, demonstrated that the footwashing scene in John 13 is a “status transformation ritual” in which the disciples are made priests of the new covenant.

Editor’s note: Since females can never become priests, washing women’s feet during the Holy Thursday liturgy is (conceptually) just as ridiculous, false, unnatural and probably even more offensive to God, than “trans” men claiming to be women and “trans” women claiming to be men.

Both serve to deny God’s truth and instead, serve to cleverly twist that divine truth into a lie.

Disney Has Been Corrupting Kids for Decades

Disney has been quietly and steadily paving the way for the new normal of identity politics for almost forty years now. At least since the dawn of the so-called “Disney Renaissance” in the ’80s, Disney has been the progressive Trojan Horse that has infiltrated almost every single home in the developed world. It has deposited its special Disney morality in the impressionable imaginations of several generations who now embrace the narcissistic tautologies and equivocations that make up identity politics.

The fact of the matter is that Disney has been feeding generations stories and songs that focus our attention on our own wants and desires without making us reflect upon their wisdom or virtue. For almost forty years, we have been hammered with Disney’s definition of love, a definition that is shockingly supportive of the woke tautology that demands that we define no further, impose no limits, and allow no objections. 

Old fairy tales and beloved legends were repurposed to fit a very modern message by artists and producers whose own lifestyles required a cultural seismic shift in basic definitions about family, relationships, love, and personal identity. Nineties conservatives felt that there was something wrong when they looked at this friendly, Mouse-shaped Trojan Horse, but few were perceptive enough to realize that the danger lay in the songs their children knew by heart rather than the supposed subliminal messages and dirty images.

Catholic actor blacklisted by Hollywood made a “comeback” through prayer and his abiding faith in God

In 2010, the actor claimed he was fired three days into filming the ABC series “Scoundrels” because he wouldn’t agree to on-screen sex scenes. While the show only ran for one season, the 56-year-old said he was blacklisted from the industry.

“There was a time when I wasn’t working,” the 56-year-old told Fox News Digital. “I couldn’t get a job because people thought I was this crazy religious guy. But that wasn’t the case. I love my wife, but I love my acting too. I was hopeful that, at some point, someone would give me a chance again.”

“I remember falling to my knees and saying, ‘God, why have you forgotten about me? Why am I being punished so much?’ McDonough recalled. “And as soon as those words came out of my mouth, I realized what self-absorbed questions those were. God has given me so much. We all experience challenges in our lives. I should be grateful – and thankful – for all the blessings I’m given.”
