  • Caravan migrants demand reparations in exchange for turning back

    12/12/2018 6:15:45 PM PST · by Kaslin · 37 replies ^ | December 12, 2018 | JAZZ SHAW
    I bet the head of Homeland Security is sitting in his office right about now saying, “How did we not think of this first?”The leaders of the migrant caravan currently parked on the other side of the Mexican border have come up with a brilliant solution to the standoff that’s been going on for quite some time now. They’re tired of waiting to have their asylum claims heard and are unhappy with all of their comrades being arrested when they try to cross the border illegally. So roughly 100 of them have contacted our government with a counteroffer. Just give...

    Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota is making headlines after announcing his bid for chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). Ellison already has strong support from Sens. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Harry Reid. Some have said Ellisons own identity as an African-American and a Muslim would be a strong statement for the Democratic Party under the upcoming Donald Trump administration. He previously advocated for, and is reportedly a passionate supporter of H.R. 40: Commission to Study Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act, co-sponsored by Michigan Rep. John Coyners Jr.

    The man accused of gunning down a 32-year-old Pleasanton woman while she was out strolling San Francisco's Embarcadero with her father was in a Bay Area jail four months ago and should have been turned over to federal immigration officials upon his release, instead of being sent free, according to the Department of Homeland Security. But that's not the way the San Francisco County Sheriff's Legal Counsel Freya Horne sees it. In an interview Friday with NBC Bay Area, she said the city and county of San Francisco are sanctuaries for immigrants, and do not turn over undocumented people ...

    Featured Term (selected at random: CALUMNY Injuring another person's good name by lying. It is doubly sinful, in unjustly depriving another of his good name and in telling an untruth. Since calumny violates justice, it involves the duty of making reparation for the foreseen injury inflicted. Hence the calumniator must try, not only to repair the harm done to another's good name, but also to make up for any foreseen temporal loss that resulted from the calumny, for example, loss of employment or customers. (Etym. Latin calumnia, a false accusation, malicious charge; from calvi, to deceive.) All items in...

    Germany, Italy at UN court over WWII compensation By ARTHUR MAX, Associated Press Sep 12, 2011 THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) Germany argued at the United Nations' highest court Monday that Italian courts have no right to order it to pay compensation to Nazi war victims, saying international law and peace treaties would be jeopardized if national courts had the power to override them. Granting national courts jurisdiction over other countries would prompt would-be plaintiffs to "shop around for the most favorable national courts" and would lead to "legal disorder," said Germany's top legal adviser. Germany says its sovereignty...

    Acorn, Barack Obamas 2008 campaign, and slavery reparations are the real agenda driving the Pigford Settlement, the multi-billion dollar Black farmers pay out according to conservative investigative journalist Andrew Breitbart. Pigford was the lead plaintiff in the original class action suit against the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The distribution of subsidies in the early 1980s to mid l990s was at issue, with sympathetic USDA administrators agreeing to settle the case at taxpayer expense. Breitbart recently told a radio audience these were the factors behind Obamas largest fleecing of U.S. taxpayers in history. Breitbart maintains Acorn is being used in this...

    Aborigine communities have comparatively low life expectancies Thousands of Aborigines who were removed from their families as children will receive no compensation, the Australian government has said.Campaigners for the so-called Stolen Generations had asked for a reparation fund of almost A$1bn ($870m; 443m) as part of a promised official apology. But indigenous affairs minister Jenny Macklin says money will instead be put into health and education schemes. Many Aboriginal children were handed to white families from 1915 to 1969. They were brought up by white people in an attempt by the government to assimilate the white and Aboriginal populations....

    An act of reparation A prayer that is called an act of reparation should in some way address those four elements that are given in Number 23 of the Constitutions as mentioned above. There should be the welcoming of the Spirits action in our lives that moves us to respond and return love.The love of Jesus as manifested in His life and especially in His passion and death should be brought to mind as a kind of impetus to love in return. There should be some expression of our uniting ourselves with Jesus in His return of love to the...

    The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in Reparation for Abortion by Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J. Abortion is the ultimate crime. Other crimes can be perpetuated for some profit or gain. But there is no gain in abortion, except a lifetime of pathetic quiet. Other crimes can be provided by some deadly passion, like lust, or anger or revenge. But there is no real passion in abortion, except an idolatrous self-love or inhuman self-will. The killing of innocent unborn children goes back to the dawn of recorded history. In the Roman Empire, at the dawn of Christianity, there were no...

    TFP Student Action launches Pray for Notre Dame. Join thousands of concerned students and parents in prayer and reparation. So many students and parents had trusted Notre Dames new president, Fr. John I. Jenkins, would restore moral order on campus by stopping two blatant anti-Catholic events from occurring year after year: Queer Film Festival and V-Monologues. However, hopes that Notre Dame would ban immoral events were shattered on April 5, when Fr. Jenkins issued a statement allowing pro-homosexual film festivals or events to continue at Our Ladys university. Fr. Jenkins said, [I] see no reason to prohibit performances of 'The...

    VIENNA, Austria -- About 3,000 people have been cleared to receive the first payments from an Austrian fund to compensate Holocaust survivors, and another 3,000 should be approved shortly, the fund's chief overseer said Thursday. Hannah Lessing, general secretary of the General Settlement Fund, told the Austria Press Agency that the first cash payments will be made by Saturday. Lessing said the fund hopes to have processed all of the 19,300 survivors' claims by the end of 2006, although she said "some cases are very complicated." Six thousand applications were filed from inside Austria, Lessing said. Austria created the $210...

    When the University of Nebraskas Studio Theatre advertised its plans to stage the blasphemous anti-Catholic play "Corpus Christi," the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property (TFP) and its TFP Student Action and America Need Fatima campaign immediately launched a prayerful protest. "Corpus Christi" portrays Our Lord and His twelve Apostles as homosexuals. Just as Our Divine Savior was abandoned, insulted and mocked during His Passion, so is He offended by the sins of men today. Yet as we recall the tragic abandonment of Our Lord, we also behold the heroic example of Our Lady at the...

    Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus has an ancient history. At the beginning of devotion to the Sacred Heart we find references of the Fathers of the Church to the Sacred Wound of the Side of Jesus. In time devotion to this Sacred Wound led to devotion to the Sacred Heart. From this Sacred Wound, with the Blood and Water, the Church and the Sacraments were born. The Blood symbolized the Holy Eucharist and the Water symbolized Baptism. As St. Ambrose (d.397) stated: "The Water cleanses us, the Blood redeems us." This was also the teaching of St. John...
