    Where does Francis come up with this jibberish? “Our God is the God that creates novelties, because He is the God of surprises.  It’s not Christian to walk looking down — as pigs do: they always go like this — without raising our eyes to the horizon, as if all our journey ended here, in the span of a few meters of travel; as if there were no aim in our life and no landing, and we were constrained to an eternal wandering, without any reason for our many toils. This isn’t Christian.” — Francis’words at general audience, 23 August...
  • UK Election 2017 – Will There Be Some Surprises in Store?

    As voters head to the polls, many have predicted a Conservative party landslide, but when it comes to contests of meaning over the last couple of years, popular opinion has not always gone the way of the Globalists. The results won’t be in until gone midnight UK time, but here are some predictions that the MSM will be unlikely to offer. The Conservatives won’t hit the huge majority that was predicted a month ago. When the election period began, most pollsters had the Tory Party on a 24 point lead and heading for a 100 seat majority. And although the...

    Scientists used to think that things were pretty chill over in the south hemisphere of Uranus. In fact, they thought it was one of the calmest regions of any of the gas giants. But in analyzing images taken nearly three decades ago by NASA's Voyager-2 spacecraft, researchers think they've found a kerfuffle of activity — which might indicate that there's something unusual about the planet's interior. If you look at these old photos of Uranus, the planet appears to be a stark, featureless ball. And even to scientists, who were able to identify more lively features of the gas giant,...
  • Is Pope Francis' "God of Surprises" really the Prince of this world?

    La Salette Journey ^ | Paul Melanson
    Father John Hunwicke writes, "The Holy Father has criticised the fault of 'wanting to close oneself within the written word, and not allowing oneself to be surprised by God, by the God of surprises; within the law, within the certitude of what we know and not of what we still need to learn and to achieve'. (He went on to make balancing criticisms of other and contrary attitudes.) When the first wave of Ordinariate clergy were being 'formed' at Allen Hall, our teaching was solidly, insistently, based upon the Conciliar and post-Conciliar Magisterium. This meant the written words of Vatican...
  • Francis’ “God Of Surprises” Is A God Of Blasphemy And Heresy

    The way in which this heretical nonsense of the “god of surprises” has been swallowed by the obedient Pollyannas is a very good indication of the decay of Christian thinking among people who tell themselves Catholics, and of the inability to even understand that this disgraceful Pope is indicating to them the perfect path to hell. As so very much that Francis keeps saying, these words contain some emotional appeal meant to please the stupid; as if God’s Law were a vegetable, for which “freshness” is a quality attribute. The contrary is the case. Our God is a God of...

    When 10-year-old Charlotte Bell was invited to the White House’s annual “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day,” she made sure not to let an opportunity to help her dad pass her by. During a question-and-answer session with Michelle Obama, Charlotte wasn’t interested in asking about the first lady’s favorite book or favorite sport — she was there to get her daddy a job. “My dad’s been out of a job for three years and I wanted to give you his resume,” said Charlotte, handing Mrs. Obama a copy. “Oh my goodness,” the first lady said, hugging the little...
  • Obama's vow against automatic cuts surprises Washington

    Yahoo! News ^ | 10/23/12 | David Lawder | Reuters
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama caught Capitol Hill by surprise with his comment that automatic spending cuts looming in January "will not happen," kindling hope among Democrats but doubt among Republicans that he has a viable plan to replace them. In Monday night's debate against Republican Mitt Romney Obama did not say whether he had a specific plan in mind to avoid the $109 billion in cuts due to start on January 2, or if he was merely hopeful Congress would act. The across-the-board reductions, known as a sequester, are to be divided equally between defense and non-defense programs....

    President Barack Obama can’t stand to be without his “Entourage.” Call it a guilty pleasure, or maybe it just rings familiar to him. The HBO series about an aspiring actor features a fast-talking agent named Ari, based on the real-life brother of Obama’s chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel. For less R-rated fare, he tunes into “Hannah Montana” or “SpongeBob SquarePants” in the White House with his daughters. Aides said he would have watched Monday night’s NCAA championship on TiVo on his way home from Iraq Tuesday night. Jon Stewart’s smackdown of CNBC’s Jim Cramer? Obama was eager to see it....

    American Spectator ^ | March 26, 2009 | Matthew Vadum
    Fair-minded conservatives were aghast in President George W. Bush's second term when the left-wing character assassination machine went into high gear to destroy Jeff Gannon. Gannon, also known as James Dale Guckert, asked questions that annoyed liberals because they were based on a right-wing political perspective. Liberals were outraged. How dare the White House allow a conservative in who didn't constantly bash President Bush. The nerve! Partisan, ideologically-driven people shouldn't be allowed into White House press briefings, they howled in unison. [...] Now comes the revelation that at least one partisan ideologically-driven leftist is being welcomed to White House media...

    Left-Brain/Wright-Brain by JohnHuang2 The more I hear Jeremiah Wright speak the more I think Hillary should give him a raise! Jeremiah set out to prove he’s not a total racist nutjob and did a good job of proving he’s a total racist nutjob. First he had to tackle an interview with Bill Moyers, who took the gloves off with questions like, “When did you hear the call to ministry, how did it come?” and “What did you think when you began to see those VERY BRIEF sound bites circulating as they did?” Moyers then went for the kill! “What...

    Dems to Petraeus: Can we still surrender? by JohnHuang2 Democrats are desperate to hand Iraq over to al-Qaeda and Iran — change we can believe in! Nut Pelosi and Harry Reid have tried over 50 times to force Bush to lose the war for them, and failed. So desperate are libbies, they’re now busy concocting imaginary victories for the enemy out of whole cloth, just as they did during Viet Nam. Approximately 10 minutes after the crackdown on Shia militias began, the press proclaimed the crackdown had failed. Yet, if the goal of the mighty “Mahdi Army” was to...

    Warning: PhotoGRAPHIC! by JohnHuang2 I thought Hillary would be easier than Obama to beat, then along came The Photo, which was clearly doctored — the suicide belt was removed! It shows Obama decked out in Muslim garb during his ‘06 trip to Kenya to interfere in Kenya’s politics. Whip out a red-states/blue-states ‘04 election map and see how many red states flip to blue because Obama looks cool in a Muslim get-up. In the past, Democrats got blown away with lesser stuff — Muskie crying in the rain, Gary Hart on the Monkey Business, Dukakis in a helmet, riding...
