    Harvesting the Fruit of Vatican II ^ | 8/28/15 | Fr. José Miguel Marqués Campo
    There is an old Italian adagium which says: Traduttore, traditore, in Castilian (Spanish): Traductor, traidor, in English: Translator, traitor. It’s one of those brief proverbs that say so much in so few words, graced with common sense, popular wisdom, and not without reason! For indeed in just two words, this proverb sums up a fact, proven beyond any reasonable doubt: that translations oftentimes are so lacking, are so bad, as to provoke a traitorous assault on the original meaning. Be that as it may, translation is fascinating work, but it certainly has its shortcomings. It can be very easy sometimes,...

    An aircraft with 54 people on board crashed in Indonesia's remote and mountainous region of Papua on Sunday, a government official said, the latest in a string of aviation disasters in the Southeast Asian nation. "The latest information is that the Trigana aircraft that lost contact has been found at Camp 3, Ok Bape district in the Bintang Mountains regency," Air Transportation Director General Suprasetyo told reporters. "Residents provided information that the aircraft crashed into Tangok mountain." There was no immediate word on whether anyone survived.

    An Indonesian twin-turboprop aircraft carrying 54 people lost contact with air traffic control on Sunday in the remote, forested eastern Papua region, the National Search and Rescue Agency (BASARNAS) said, with search efforts hampered by failing light as night falls. "We can't confirm it has crashed. We can say contact has been lost with the plane," BASARNAS chief Bambang Soelystyo told Reuters by telephone. "It's a Trigana airline plane carrying 54 people including five crew. We are working to get more details."

    Americans who are concerned about traditional freedoms and the Second Amendment have no difficulty understanding the message of the popular bumper strip: "If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns." It should be just as easy to grasp the corollary: If nukes are outlawed, only terrorist countries will have nukes. But somehow, Barack Obama and Chuck Hagel don't get it. In a 2007 campaign speech, Obama promised: "Here's what I'll say as president: America seeks a world in which there are no nuclear weapons." Chuck Hagel is listed as one of six directors of a dangerous group called "Global...

In addition to losing two years’ worth of emails sent and received by Lois Lerner, the central figure in the scandal, the IRS “cannot produce records from six other IRS employees involved in the targeting of conservative groups,” Ways and Means Republicans said in a release. That includes Nikole Flax, who was the chief of staff for Steven Miller, the acting IRS commissioner who was fired...

It has not been established whether the ping is related to the disappeared Flight MH370. Xinhua further said a Chinese air force plane spotted a number of white floating objects in the...

The show originally aired on Dec. 13, 1981. It may have had a re-airing a year or two later, but then it disappeared. It turned up among several hundred vintage WPIX tapes in a long-ignored room,...

    My bookshelves sag with encyclopedic volumes arguing that America and the West are in decline. But proving that a picture is worth a thousand books, the “selfie” seen ’round the world ends the argument. It’s official — the government of the United States of Obama consists of boobs and bores and is led by a narcissist. It is no consolation that Great Britain joins us in racing to the bottom. President Obama’s flirting with Denmark’s prime minister would be shameful on any occasion. That it happened at the memorial for Nelson Mandela only adds to the embarrassment. But the “selfie”...

Convention on the Law of the Sea, which often goes by the acronym LOST. Panetta was speaking after the election. His ire about LOST’s status suggests that the Obama administration may well make this a second-term priority. It’s come close to being ratified by the U.S. Senate before -- it dates back to 1982, in fact. But LOST has never been able to gain enough supporters in the Senate. That could change,...

    A group of Senate conservatives has gathered enough support to block any treaties that come up for a vote during the lame duck session. A total of 37 Senators pledged, in a letter drafted by Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Pat Toomey (R-PA) to Majority and Minority leaders Harry Reid (D-NV) and Mitch McConnell (R-KY), to “oppose efforts to consider a treaty during” the lame duck session. Because treaties require a two-thirds majority in the Senate to reach the president’s desk, the group of Senators will be able to block any treaties considered after the Nov. 6 election.

    Is Obama’s federal government getting ready to put a huge red X mark on the Hoover Dam, which supplies most of the American West with its life-sustaining water? Having this scenario play out is quite plausible as Barack Obama’s Executive Order # 13547 in support of the global Law of the Sea Treaty (L.O.S.T.) seeks to take control of our water in any form of precipitation, from sky to ocean! Total water control will give the American president and his global cohorts total control of all U.S. citizens if this initiative is not stopped by still-free citizens. Because the Water...

    I post this as a differentiator. You can find plenty of information about Condi and the LOST treaty during the Bush years, but it can be common for people to do what the administration they're currently involve with wants done, despite it being counter to what they believe. Or they've had a change of opinion over time. This is not the case in Condi's case, her position is clear outside of the Bush Administration. She does not support American sovereignty. Her opinion is her own. Time to Join The Law of the Sea Treaty (May 30th 2012) BY HENRY KISSINGER,...

    With 34 Republican senators now opposing a United Nations effort to regulate international waters, the Law of the Sea treaty effectively has no way forward in the U.S. Senate.Republican Sens. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, Rob Portman of Ohio, Mike Johanns of Nebraska and Johnny Isakson of Georgia joined 30 other GOP members in agreeing to vote against the U.N. treaty. South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMint helped lead the conservative effort on Capitol Hill to rally senators against the treaty, which has been pushed by chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee John Kerry and notably backed by...

    Senator Inhofe (OK) was on the Senate floor today to give a status update on the opposition to the Law Of the Sea Treaty (LOST). He now has 35 senators who will vote "no" if the treaty comes to a floor vote. This is enough votes to stop the treaty from passing. The video is 12:46 long and has some interesting information about the treaty and why senators are objecting to it.
  • 13 Freshman Senators Kill LOST Treaty

    This was supposed to be the year the U.S. Senate finally ratified the age-old Law of the Sea Treaty. That was apparently enough motivation for conservatives to rally the grassroots and sink the treaty once again. Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) announced that he had secured commitments from 34 senators to oppose LOST, ensuring it would not be ratified by the Senate this year. Because it requires 67 votes for the Senate to approve treaties, only 34 votes are needed block them. The 34 senators include: 1.Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ) 2.Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) 3.Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) 4.Sen. Pat Roberts...

    Ayotte and Portman composed a letter to Reid. The letter was attached as a pdf to the email, and I don't know how to post an image very well so I posted this excerpt from the letter and her email below. - Begin quote: 'The real issue is not whether the United States will defend its maritime rights, but rather wo will have the final say on the scope of those rights. We simply are not persuaded that the decisions by the International Seabed Authority and international tribunals empowered by this treaty will be more favorable to U.S. interests than...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A treaty governing the high seas is all but dead in the Senate as two Republican senators announced their opposition Monday, giving conservative foes the necessary votes to scuttle the pact. Sens. Rob Portman of Ohio and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire — both mentioned as possible running mates for likely Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney — said they had serious concerns about the breadth and ambiguity of the Law of the Sea treaty and would oppose it if called up for a vote. The Constitution requires two-thirds of the Senate — 67 votes — to ratify...

    UPDATED 7/16/12: 4 additional senators have joined in opposition to LOST, including Mike Johanns (R-NE), Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Rob Portman (R-OH) and Johnny Isakson (R-GA). With 34 senators against the misguided treaty, LOST will not be ratified by the Senate this year. Strong opposition is rising in the U.S. Senate to the U.N.'s Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) that would subjugate American sovereignty to the whims of an international tribunal. To date, 30 Republican senators have signed onto a letter opposing LOST. It takes 67 votes to approve treaties in the Senate, so only 34 votes are needed to...
