  • And Out You Go! Why Fainting Is So Common in Church

    And Out You Go! Why Fainting Is So Common in Church Msgr. Charles Pope • May 24, 2016 • In my over 26 years as a priest (even longer serving in some capacity at the Holy Liturgy) I have witnessed more than a few people faint. Some just slump over; others go out with a real bang. Weddings are a big source of fainting spells, but just about any long Mass produces its share of “lights out” experiences. Some years ago, when I was serving as First Assistant Deacon for a Pontifical Solemn High Mass in the Basilica, we...
  • AP editors: Obama relies on staged propaganda photos [Is Pravda Turning On Its Master?]

    11/01/2013 1:05:24 PM PDT · by SoFloFreeper · 34 replies
    Editors of The Associated Press condemned the White House’s refusal to give photojournalists real access to President Obama, who prefers to circulate press release-style pictures taken by his own paid photographers.These official photographs are little more than propaganda, according to AP director of photography Santiago Lyon.The AP has only been permitted to photograph the president in the Oval Office on two occasions. Both were during his first term. All other pictures of Obama in his office were taken by White House photographers and distributed to the press.Previous administrations were less strict about photos, undermining Obama’s frequent claim that he strives...

Her name is Karmel Allison. Shes from California. Shes pregnant. And she has Type I diabetes. Although shes not sure whether shell switch over from her current plan, she says she likes having...

    I know what youre thinking: its the perfect allegory, right? Woman falls ill, Big Healthcare.Gov is there to catch her as shes falling. Oh, and BTW, her name is Karmel how perfect is that!! Not too dark, not too light: just right! A little too perfect, say the usual critics (Tea Party Anarchists). Theyre off, spinning their usual, unfounded, conspiracy theories. You know how they plot their little scenarios by now: theyll claim that BOs Big Brains and otherwise useful idiots advisors wrote the fake faint right into the script so Barry can come to her aid.

    President Barack Obama helped a pregnant woman who began to faint during his speech about health care reforms today, joking 'That's what happens when I talk too long.' Mr Obama reached out to catch prospective Affordable Care Act beneficiary Karmel Allison who was standing directly behind him as he discussed the glitches of the new healthcare website in the Rose Garden of the White House. Around 25 minutes into the speech, Ms Allison became unsteady and started to lose consciousness. At that point, the President turned around and helped catch her before she actually fainted. 'I got you. You're OK,'...

    Republicans are 'not giving up' on BenghaziBy Julian Pecquet - 12/15/12 03:24 PM ET Republican lawmakers are vowing to keep pressing the administration on Benghazi despite Susan Rices decision to drop her bid to become secretary of State. We'll continue to seek answers, a Republican Senate aide told The Hill. We're not giving up on it. Rices decision to step aside averted a contentious confirmation fight with Republican senators that might have pointed to an end to the political battle over the U.S. consulate attack. The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations had become the flash-point for criticism since describing...

    BIG SKY, Mont. Fighting for control of the health care debate, President Barack Obama is using political tactics and rhetorical devices honed in his White House campaign to regain the upper hand over increasingly vocal critics. In person and over the Internet, Obama is trying to counter intense public skepticism that's flared nationwide in recent weeks over Democrats' plans to overhaul the nation's health care system. It's his top domestic priority and arguably his most challenging political fight yet as president, in no small part because of the vast number of diverse stake-holders involved. Familiar tools from the Obama...

    Remember the good old days? Back during the Dem primaries? When Barack Obama was such an electrifying speaker that women were regularly fainting at his rallies? Ah, how times have changed. Instead of knocking them out with his other-worldly aura, Obama's now . . . putting them to sleep. Check out the woman in the lower-right hand corner of the screencap, seen on CNN today during a live broadcast of Obama on the stump in Virginia. No, I didn't catch her in mid-blink. She actually dozed off just as Obama was ventilating on the horrors of the Bush economy. View...

    Study: Fainting at Obama Rallies Caused by Intense Fear WASHINGTON, DC, July 18 - There have been many reports in the past year of supporters fainting at Barack Obama rallies. The press proclaims "dehydration," or "hot sun" and "long waits." Evidence of course, that their candidate is a "rock star." But with the number of down-for-the-count faithful going parabolic, serious questions are being asked. Now fainters are rushed out almost before they slap concrete. And you won't read a word about an entire row falling like dominoes. Now, a new study, Central Ischaemic Response and The Politics of Hope, reveals...

Obama's big message Monday is a defense of his personal patriotism. But politically, it's significant because Missouri is a battleground state. Democratic candidate Barack Obama launched a weeklong effort to re-define himself with a speech about patriotism. He's working on party unity to get out a bigger Democratic vote in November. It's the first time he's had some prominent Hillary Clinton supporters in the crowd. Obama says "patriotism can never be defined as loyalty to...

    Rarely have I read a newspaper column that shocks me for its sheer breadth of nonsense, but todays effort by Charlotte Allen in the Washington Post provides one of those I-cant-believe-she-wrote-that moment. She starts off by scolding the women who faint at Barack Obama rallies, a phenomenon that deserves all the ridicule it gets. Allen runs off the rails, though, when she extrapolates the silliness of five women into supposedly inherent traits that come when two X chromosomes meet (via Memeorandum): I cant help it, but reading about such episodes of screaming, gushing and swooning makes me wonder whether women...

    RUSH: From the Los Angeles Times: "They came to cheer. They got a lecture. The crowd went wild. During a Barack Obama town-hall meeting on the economy, the topic turned to education, which, the Illinois senator said, could not be remedied by spending alone. 'It doesn't matter how much money we put in if parents don't parent,' he scolded. The line is one the Democrat delivers often, but on Thursday in Beaumont, Texas, he struck a remarkable chord with his mostly African American audience. 'It's not good enough for you to say to your child, "Do good in school," and...

    Call it the Barack Obama traveling salvation show campaign rallies and speeches that seem like the secular counterpart of tent-meeting revivals and evangelistic sermons common in the U.S. a century ago. And, in apparent similarity to the religious enthusiasm of that bygone era, some of those coming to hear the Democrat presidential candidate "preach" his message are fainting as he speaks. A video compilation by Breitbart.TV shows Obama on several occasions breaking off his speeches to address someone who has collapsed, usually close to the stage, and to call for medical personnel while he offers bottled water to the...

Local media reported that Fox either walked or was helped into a nearby building to get out of the sun. After a medical examination, Fox rejoined the group at the ranch, located in the north-central state of Guanajuato. Fox's last day in office...

Castro was talking to an Argentine protocol officer and an unidentified woman when one of his bodyguards rushed toward him, pushing the woman to the floor, and grabbed the Cuban leader by the arm as he began to fall to the ground, sources tell Insight. Another bodyguard reportedly grabbed Castro by the other arm, while the Argentine...
