Please post all information about today's protests here.

My phone is already ringing steadily.

Our AIP folks on the ground at the Notre Dame gates report that the CBR plane is in the air.

Notre Dame is French for Our Lady...ie the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus Christ. it's very name is equated with Catholicism...and true devout Catholics are outraged that one of our universities is overrun with those who mock our Lady and her son's church by inviting theOne and giving him an honorary degree. obama is unworthy...his devotion to aborting the born and even those just born in abortion mills shows his true colors....and it just shows you how little Catholicism means to those running the university. let it be a warning to those who might have sent their children there.

Yikes, it is an embarrassing day to be a Catholic...giving a standing O and honors to this scum.

But on the bright side...separating the the wheat from the chaff, distinguishing the wanted from the unwanted, the valuable from the valueless.

The “Catholics” inside worshiping Hussein, vs the Catholics outside....we know which is rubbish.

Yes, Jenkins calls Obama a "healer." Who needs Christ? He praises him for things he hasn't done yet - the devil's empty promises.

I refuse to watch Obama speak. He makes my skin crawl. I will read the transcripts later. Gonna pray some Aves now.

Check this out...

The Notre Dame Board of Trustees is a powerful organization, comprised of top international business owners, chairs of rich endowments, academic leaders, judges, attorneys, faculty, and prominent clergy. These individuals are typically very wealthy, well-connected and highly accomplished; many with broad interests outside the university. A closer look at the board and its affiliations might shed light on just how Notre Dame came to this decision.

Many of the influential alumni on the Notre Dame board are from the nearby Chicago area, and are part of the same Chicago power structure that President Obama ascended. Richard and Peggy Notebaert are leading members of the ND community, and Notebaert is chair of the Notre Dame trustees. While Obama served in the senate, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, received federal funding earmarked by Obama.. Key Obama campaign fundraiser, Frank Clark served on the board of the Notebaert Museum at the time. The Chicago Museum of Science and Industry, where ND trustee Arthur Velasquez is on the board, also received millions in earmarks. Velasquez contributed to Obama’s campaigns in ’04 and ’08.

Chicago power at Notre Dame extends to political posts as well. Justice Ann Claire Williams was appointed by Bill Clinton in 1999 to the U.S. Court of Appeals 7th District. In 2004, she ruled that the Department of Justice could not subpoena hospital abortion records to enforce the ban on partial birth abortions. Left-leaning Chicago politics has a place on the Notre Dame governing board. Currently Ann Claire Williams is receiving serious attention among the top three possible Obama replacements for retiring Supreme Court Justice David Souter.

Some Notre Dame board members have made ethical misjudgments in the past. Chicago trustee Philip B. Rooney, Chairman of Claddagh Investments, is former CEO of Waste Management Inc., the world’s largest waste services company. In 2002, Rooney and Waste Management, along with Arthur Andersen, Enron and others, were indicted by the SEC in a massive fraud case. WMI management eventually settled for 30.8 million in penalties. The SEC barred Rooney permanently from being an officer in a public company. He divested most of his own stock before the investigations caused shareholder assets to plummet. Despite this history Rooney retains his board position at Notre Dame today.

Much more here...

Guy has a really, really loud voice. Looks like Obama had his boys haul him away for a beat down.

The way you do this is you have another guy jump up and do the same thing from a different part of the audience a little later.

There are Notre Dame trustees who directly support [sic] Obama administration goals. Dr. Mary Anne Fox is chancellor at U[niversity of] C[alifornia] San Diego and Vice-Chair of the National Science Board. Recently Fox announced the opening of a new research facility where the school will cultivate and experiment on human embryonic stem cells. The laboratory will partner with Scripps Research and the Salk Institute in La Jolla, CA where Fox also sits on the leadership council. In 2007 the Institute hosted a stem cell ethics conference. R. Alta Charo, bioethicist and advisor to the Obama transition team was a key speaker. At UCSD the bio-engineering department has just established a partnership with Tsinghua University in China, to further their research.

Is Jenkins doing doublespeak?

Obama plans on plenty of doublespeak in his speech. One part of his speech:

............."Let's honor the conscience of those who disagree with abortion, and draft a sensible conscience clause, and make sure that all of our health care policies are grounded in clear ethics and sound science, as well as respect for the equality of women." .............

He is of course speaking about the conscience clause that he threatened to rescind in late February of this year. Obama Plans to Rescind Healthcare 'Conscience Clause'

The Obama administration announced Friday (Feb. 27) plans to rescind regulations that allow healthcare workers to abstain from performing medical procedures they object to on moral grounds.

The Bush administration authored the rule shortly before leaving office last December, primarily to shield those with religious or moral opposition to abortion. It said healthcare workers cannot be discriminated against for refusing to participate in objectionable procedures, and facilities that did not accommodate employees with objections could lose federal funding.

In conclusion, a review of the Board of Trustees at Notre Dame does NOT reveal a particularly strong Catholic identity. There are board members whose actions and associations put them in a position directly at odds with Church teaching and in line with the Obama administration. At the Notre Dame board, we see a group of well-connected well-heeled individuals from all sectors of society, and at the most prominent levels. Taking a stand against inviting the President of the United States would likely jeopardize membership in the elite club where they travel. Therefore it is highly unlikely that there will be any movement from within the board to rescind invitation to President Obama.

Problem with the gay guys is they are finding it difficult to get dates ~ the young ones are all dropping dead from AIDS ~ and so they do their flirting out in public at what the rest of us would consider inopportune moments.

They are one pathetic bunch.
