Hillary Clinton at Guadeloupe Basillica

On Thursday Hillary Clinton visited the Virgin of Guadeloupe's Basilica in Mexico City Mexican and is seen here with Monsignor Diego Monroy.

Hillary Clinton receiving Planned Parenthood award

On Friday she is given an award by Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards for her work with women's health issues protecting abortion. The award is called the Maggie named after racist-eugenicist Margaret Sanger.

Quite a transition from visiting the miraculous painting that has become so iconic for the pro-life movement where so often a painting bearing this image is carried during pro-life marches and then to receive an award that is the total antithesis of the pro-life movement.

It also looks like she was not given any information about Our lady of Guadeloupe before visiting the Basilica.

After observing it for a while, Mrs. Clinton asked "who painted it?" to which Msgr. Monroy responded "God!" Reference

Our lady of Guadeloupe pray for us.

Gateway Pundit: Harry Reid Attacks Chief Justice John Roberts

Gateway Pundit: Harry Reid Attacks Chief Justice John Roberts

This ties in with my posting below

An Anti-Catholic Administration????

The Great One, the Maha Rushie today was discussing the Notre Dame fiasco. As usual, his points were well made and accurate. He also discussed what is transpiring with our favorite heterophobe, Barney Frank, specifically his comments about Supreme Court Justice Scalia being a "homophobe" The theory being proposed made me think that anti-Catholicicism is alive and well with the Deceiver in Chief. Rush proposed that these comments are designed to intimidate the conservative members of the Supreme Court, but especially Chief Justice Roberts, who was specifically attcked by Senateor Harry Reid, to start rethinking on which side they should be on the issues presented to the Court. This is nothing short of intimidation of the Justices, of whom five are Catholic, and of these five, four are conservative. (The anti-Catholic tenor of this argument was not proposed by Rush, but comes from my fertile brain working overtime- )

To support my anti-Catholic corollary of Rush's masterfull thesis, I have provided a link to an article found a The Catholic Thing. This article is compelling for if true, and I do not doubt that it is, the Deceiver in Chief is trying to silence all Catholic opposition to his plans. This article outlines an attempt, by an unknown and misguided Republican doing the bidding of the Commie in Chief, to force the Holy See into silencing His Excellency Archbishop Raymond Burke. This coupled with the intimidation tactics of Frank and Reid are definitely part of the same game plan.

Here is the address for you to cut and paste into your server- still working out how to link properly in cases like this!!!

Friday, 27 March 2008

So much has been happening this week, it is overhwelming. (Not in a good way, either) One gets the feeling that we are teetering at the brink of an abyss, morally, and the next bit of bad news will just push us over. First the Notre Dame fiasco, brought about by the open defiance and collusion of the president of that school- what was he thinking? This is not the Land of Lakes era of 1967-1968, in which that same school played a leading role in undermining the Faith in this country. Seriously, that school should no longer be allowed to call itself Catholic, all of its priests should be sent to monasteries under a perpetual vow of silence, and the Jesuit order suspended indefinitely, with their priests undergoing an adjustment under the same vow of silence!!! I don't recall what the 1983 Canon Law states (my copy is in storage along with everything else) so my intemperate tantrum may be off the mark, but boy if that punishment doesn't meet this crime!!!!

Then, on the secular front, we have the latest power grab by the tax cheat frontman for the Communist in Chief. Remeber the howls of outrage with the bailout/TARP bill giving then Treasury Secreatary Paulson unprecedented powers? Why isn't the press howling in otrage over this? (Sorry- I forgot myself there- they are in the stands cheering this on, since they helped give us this mess in the first place) How about that Hitler Youth bill? It passed the Senate, with only 19 dissenting votes (Yes, I know the offending passage was removed by the House, but it can magically reappear at the conference to reconcile the House and Senate versions- if not then, it will reappear in other legislation before the year is out)

The one bright spot was the MEP Daniel Hannan. What a courageous, principled man. He is very much in shock at the interest his statements have made. Why can't our politicians represent us in this manner? Where is our "Daniel Hannan"?

On the family front, Geoff is back in Ohio, same hotel and the same room!!! We expect to rejoin him next week, and then back to NY for Easter. We apparently will NOT be moving before May, so it looks like two more months of hotel living for us. Thank heavens for the pool, and our dvd player.

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa!!!!!

I have posted several links to Gateway Pundit below, in accordance with my being a charter member of the loyal opposition to the destruction of America by the Communist in Chief. My excuses are secular- am busy getting Geoff ready to return to Ohio tomorrow, recovering from a bout of bronchitis, and my books from Amazon have arrived (Madame Royale and Trianon!!!!) I pray that Gateway Pundit and my readers absolve me of the sin of sloth.

"Trickle up poverty"

I borrow this phrase from the inestimable Michael Savage, of radio fame, who first coined it. While I do not listen to the man on a daily basis, I tend to think along the same lines of reference. As is the case with Rush Limbaugh, Dr. Savage (yes, he has earned a Ph.D, so is entitled to the prefix), and Mark Levin have given us much to ponder, as has Glenn Beck with his 912 Project. While the Tea Parties around this country are useful, we are not reliving our original Revolution of 1776. I believe that the signs are much more ominous, a la the French Revolution, which in turn spawned the Russian and the bloodshed of the 20th century. This time, the scoundrels will be much more crafty, and the blood shed will not be on such an horrific scale. We have the spectacle of the current House and Senate, led since 2006 by the Democrats, the modern day Jacobins. We have the institution, under the GIVE Act which just passed muster in the House, of the American version of the Hitler Youth (HT to Gateway Pundit for calling this Act what it really is). We have ACORN, with the blessings of the open threats of Barney Frank, our favorite heterophobe, threatening private citizens, in their homes, who had the misfortune to succeed on their own merits and talents, just like the mobs of Paris storming the Bastille in 1789. We have the tenets of Marx and lenin enshrined in the TOTUS, who now wants his tax cheat Treasury secretary to have greatly enhanced powers of seizure of private corporations.

To those who voted for this, J'accuse!!!! By your act of voting, you have undermined the greatness of this country. By your selfishness you have betrayed her. May God have mercy on your souls. You are reaping what you have sown- enjoy its galling taste.

Sometimes the truth hurts, doesn't it, left wingers? At least the conservatives, and I do not count Mr. O'Reilly as one, do what is right by the victims of violent crime, instead of infantilizing and glorifying the actions of the guilty amoral perpetrators.

Happy St. Jospeh's Day!!!!

Love this saint- patron of husbands, fathers, etc. What a real man in times of trouble - a pillar of support for his wife and child. What sacrifices he made to ensure God's Will be done. The Italians rightly remember him with glorious celebrations on his feast day. He has been overlooked, as too many good husbands and fathers are in today's society of selfish women and whining children.

Great restaurant chain for Lent

Geoff and I found a great restaurant chain, Beef O'Brady's. Had heard of it before from my parents in South Carolina, but went for the first tijme today. Lo and behold, on each and every table, in the three sided lucite holders common to chain restaurant chains, there was a listing of foods available that were appropriate for Lent. It was even called Lent 2009!!!! Kudos to this chain, which thankfully serves Coke and not Pepsi. We are now new fans.

BURN NOTICE

I have to admit it, but I am addicted to this show!!!! I never schedule my life around a show, but this show is the first and only exception. I missed parts of Season 1, so when I saw the dvd set in Walmart, I grabbed it. This show simply gets better with every episode- the actors are perfectly cast for their roles, something that I have never seen before. The writing is superior and witty, something NOT seen on the major networks. I cannot say enough about this show, and am looking forward to June when Season 4 debuts. Why this show has never been nominated for anything is beyond me. I loved Bruce Campbell in the Fox show, "Jack of All Trades", and his current character is even better. All of the stars, and they are truly stars, are at the top of their game.

A New Day in Ohio!!!!

Yes, we are back in the great state of Ohio!!! We were only home from our first such venture 36 hours, when Geoff learned that he had to be back on Thursday. (We had arrived home at 10 PM on February 28th, and the word came at 2:30 PM, the 2nd of March, a Monday) Geoff took Amtrak to NJ to retrieve our car on Tuesday, while I did mounds of laundry and got him repacked. Ginger, our intrepid doxie extraordinaire, and I left on Friday, the 6th!!!! So much for having a week to look through the piles of mail, do our taxes, and sleep in!!!! We had a major scare this past weekend- Geoff experienced weakness/numbness in his left arm and leg, so off to the emergency room we went Friday afternoon. Possibility of a stroke considered by the ERm doc, Dr. Marshall at the Sagamore Hills Medical Center, who promptly sent Geoff to the Cleveland Clinic. Me, the tears did not stop - I had always hoped that I would be strong when and if Geoff needed me, a la Joan of Arc. No, just a marshmallow with overflowing tear ducts. An iceberg settled itself around my heart and remained, dead weight and all, until yesterday, when I brought him back to our hotel (yes, another La Quinta, and with an indoor pool). The CAT scan at the ER ruled out a big stroke, but an MRI and MRA were needed to rule out the silent strokes. MRI was at 10:30 PM on Saturday. Great radiology tech named Becky- she let me stay with him during the MRI, due to intense claustrophobia. He came through with flying colors, and now is on Lipitor for his high cholesterol. The Cleveland Clinic Foundation and its affiliated hopsitals are fantastic and saved my GEoff.

Mark in Spokane: The way forward for conservatives

A Fresh Perspective on the Democrat Assault on Rush

I cut and pasted this link from RedState.com, and I agree with its premise completely. The author posits the idea that Rahmbo and his minions have already written off El Rushbo's audience, so Rush needs to get on the liberal media and debate anyone on their home turf (CNN, CBS, NBC, etc) This premise is promising, in that it makes the point that the squishy so called "moderate" voters don't listen to talk radio, but use the aforementioned as their primary source for political news. Take it to the libs Rush!!!!! Call these Sunday show producers while doing your show and give them what they deserve!!!!

Another great link concerning the latest attempt by the Socialist in Chief to diminish political discourse in this country!! Rush calls him out for a public debate in accordance with their notions of "fairness" !!!! (Also see my earlier post with respect to the cut and paste link to The Ancoress)

Rush Limbaugh hits another one out of the park, and hits another nerve!!!

The almighty Maha Rushie has done it again!! Just off a successful speaking engagement at CPAC this past Saturday (video posted below- all ten segments), he again points out the hypocrisy and childishness of the current Administration (less than two months old and I am already fatigued by it, even more than by the eight loooong years of the Clintons). I hope she doesn't mind, but until I figure out how to link properly, I cut and pasted the link to a great article by The Anchoress, concerning today's show, which I did hear at home via the Internet. A highly recommended must read, along with Rush's own website. (Definitely worth investing in his 24/7 website and newsletter, by the way)

Domine, da mihi hanc aquam!: Rebels Without a Clue

Please go to these articles linked here. Apparently some nuns are in an uproar over the upcoming visitations. Makes one wonder if the nuns in the movies, a la "Bells of St. Mary's" were merely figments of Hollywood's imagination.

This moral morass known as America

I am appalled by the shenanigans and the lying of the current Administration and its minions. They and their adherents are hell bent on destroying America, first through the financial and banking crises they helped create, through the mortgate mess they created, with their constant end runs around the Constitution vis-a-vis the First Amendment (and I don't mean the Fairness Doctrine- watch how they "regulate" media and radio markets through the FCC in pursuit of "diversity") The abortion nightmares about to be unleashed on this country make me weep. So much for having the brightest Ivy League educated minds in charge- they don;t know a hill of beans about running anything. We are on the path towards socialism, and in less than six weeks. From now on, whenever I encounter someone who voted for this, I will make sure that I thank them for destroying America.

Rush Limbaugh, an American Hero and an American Icon

As you can see, I absolutely love Rush Limbaugh. I hope and pray that CPAC sells DVDs of his speech and that of Newt Gingrich, instead of audio recordings as has been done in years past. We caught part of the speech while enroute home from our two month sojourn in Ohio, at a rest stop, on CNN. What a speech- it was uplifting and a balm for an aching heart. He told the truth, and nothing but the truth.
If anyone has been wondering about my lack of blogging, Geoff and I were in Ohio for the past two months. While at the La Quinta Inn computer access was very limited, so blogging took a back seat. (If you have pets and travel, stay at a La Quinta- they are pet friendly and a great chain)

He is busy with CSX as a management trainee for Signals, and we have now been placed in our first assignment. Yes, we are returning to Ohio, where Geoff will be running the hump yard in Willard, Ohio!!! He is very excited, as am I. He leaves tomorrow to meet with his new boss, and then comes back to New York to get me and our dachsie, Ginger. (The cats will follow later once we have a permanent address- don't fret, they are staying with my inlaws!!!) This means that the belongings in storage for the last two years will again see the light of day, and we will be buying a house in Ohio!!!! We had only just arrived back Saturday night late, and while we knew that we would be moving to Ohio, did not expect it to be the very next week. We still have to return to New York to move out of the apartment, but all things in God's time. Am still woozy thinking of these turn of events.

We will be joining the Parish of St. Joseph in Toledo, where the TLM is celebrated every Sunday. What a glorious church this is!!! The pastor is new but what a priest!!!! While in Ohio, we attended Mass there and at Holy Rosary in Dayton , which has the TLM thanks to the FSSP. That church is aso spectacular, complete with baldachino. I have never attended Mass celebrated by a priest of the FSSP, but wow is all that can be said. I love being Catholic and having the TLM!!!!

With regard to the last two months events- The Holy Father is of course correct in lifting the excommunications of the SSPX bishops, period. The other stuff has nothing to do with canon law, and is just fodder for the Church's enemies.


Catholicdesktops.com

Everyone should head over to Catholicdesktops.com!!!! This website has wonderful icon graphics and a couple of website templates, to help make your blogging/website/desktop more authentically Catholic. I found them while reading the American Papist blog, and when we returned from our sojourn in Ohio, immediately ordered several different icon packages. Now, where to use them all!!!! Check them out today.
