    Mind your Mind! A Reflection on the Battleground of the Mind Msgr. Charles Pope • May 11, 2016 • In the Gospel for Mass yesterday (Wednesday after Ascension), the Lord said that the world would hate and persecute the disciples and He thus prayed that we would be consecrated in the truth. In the first reading, St. Paul warned the presbyters that after his departure “savage wolves” would seek to mislead the faithful. We hardly ever talk like this today, but there is a great battle for our hearts and minds. How seriously do we consider this battle?There is...

    Disclaimer: Your opinion on the debate performances are far more valid than mine. My perspective is skewed because Im looking through a filter of how Wall Street RNC/GOPe and DNC interests will view and perceive the debate performances. Baseline Going into the debate all the candidates, other than Trump, had something to gain and little to lose. Donald Trump had everything to lose and little to gain. With that in mind:

    This morning, the alarms in my house went off. I immediately armed myself and went in search of the cause or person. After thinking about it I think one fire alarm went off and then each and every alarm started as well, I believe, the actuall alarm system to the house. Freaking loud as hell and brought me out of bed, with me grabbing a weapon and charging through the first floor, then running upstairs to ascertain if we had just been broken into, with a thought running through my mind that maybe there was a fire. I didn't know....

    Happy Dependence Day! That is Dependence, D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-C-E , with a capital "D". Prompted by the Treason of the US Chief Justice in support of a radical communist Muslim US president whose assigned mission is to collapse the US economy and install socialist government infrastructure at every level, while signing over US sovereignty to a child-molesting atheist mental-case in Belgium, I just want to wish Freepers everywhere a Happy Dependence Day. By the power invested in me by my dog, Ranger, I hereby unilaterally declare that July 4th shall henceforth be known as "Dependence Day", when we celebrate the loss of...

    Salve My dear friends. As you have travel in so many political upheavals around your life, you have seen destruction of your Republic. From one point to another, you have seen degenerations of thoughts as well great thinking of good well behaved American People. While you ponder an those thoughts, and being in so many disagreements about candidates, one point is clear: you must fight for truth. I have been watching very closely of situation that has become in proper word, abhorrent, of homosexuals and others trying to push you in agenda, that is frankly disturbing and well attack on...
  • Democrats Having Second Thoughts About Charlotte

    Democrats who already were queasy about the site of their national convention could be excused after Tuesday's election in North Carolina if they asked, "Tell me again just why we're going to Charlotte this year?" In fact, many Democrats privately are asking exactly that after the state's voters overwhelmingly approved a measure outlawing not just same-sex marriage -- which already was illegal in North Carolina -- but also any form of civil unions. Almost immediately after the vote, more than 20,000 people signed a "move the convention" petition being pushed by a New York group called Gay Marriage USA. And...
  • VIDEO: Muslims in America Thoughts on the King Hearings

    A couple weeks ago, the House Homeland Security Committee, under the leadership of Rep. Peter King (R-NY), held hearings on radicalization in American Muslim communities. It was hardly the replay of the McCarthy hearings that many on the left had hoped for. And so, aside from Rep Ellisons tearful testimony, the hearing itself received less extensive press coverage than the lead up. The upside to this is that the Committee had the opportunity to do just as Mr. King suggested: look dispassionately at radicalization a problem many Muslims themselves will tell you greatly concerns them. The downside is that...

    Holy God these speeches are so damn boring. At one point I fell asleep and when I woke up he was talking about railway and sputnik, I honestly thought thought that I woke up in 1958. Thank God my laptop was sitting on my lap and I was staring at a 44 inch LCD TV. Anyway, as far as I could tell this is what the President wanted me to take from his speech: 1. Were re-launching Sputnik. 2. Trains are going to be the vehicle that takes us into the 22nd century. 3. Europe is beating us because they...

    1. The English language too often falls short of what I want to express; perhaps I need to learn more Russian 2. Recently, President Obama referred to the Democratic thumping at the polls, saying: Making an argument that people can understand, I think that we havent always been successful at that. And I take personal responsibility for that. And its something that Ive got to examine carefully as I go forward. So the end state isnt the problem Americans have with his agenda, its his phrasing of that end state. I suppose were all just too dumb to understand...

    ( - Chai Feldblum, the Georgetown University law professor nominated by President Obama to serve on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, has written that society should not tolerate any private beliefs, including religious beliefs, that may negatively affect homosexual equality. Feldblum, whose nomination was advanced in a closed session of the Senate Health Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee on December 12, published an article entitled Moral Conflict and Liberty: Gay Rights and Religion in the Brooklyn Law Review in 2006. Just as we do not tolerate private racial beliefs that adversely affect African-Americans in the commercial arena, even if such...

    WASHINGTON The Republican Party's national chairman says he's had no thoughts of resigning despite criticism of his first-year performance and controversy about his recent book that takes shots at the GOP. Michael Steele is apologizing for not alerting Republicans in advance about the book's release. In the book, he accuses GOP leaders of abandoning conservative principles over the past decade. Steele also is defending his record as party chairman, saying he's "pushing the ball" for the GOP and helping the party win elections and raise money.
  • Reformed Musings: What Does Redemption Mean?

    Christian Blog ^ | 1955 | John Murray
    Christians talk a lot about redemption and salvation. But what does redemption actually mean and what is accomplished in redemption? These pivotal questions are answered in John Murrays book Redemption Accomplished and Applied. What does redemption mean? It does not mean redeemability, that we are placed in a redeemable position. It means that Christ purchased and procured redemption. This is the triumphant note of the New Testament whenever it plays on the redemptive chord. Christ redeemed us to God by his blood (Rev. 5:9). He obtained eternal redemption (Heb 9:12) It is to beggar the concept of redemption as an...

    Model of the brain-machine interface for real-time synthetic speech production. The stroke-induced lesion (red X) disables speech output, but speech motor planning in the cerebral cortex remains intact. Signals collected from an electrode in the speech motor cortex are amplified and sent wirelessly across the scalp as FM radio signals. The Neuralynx System amplifies, converts, and sorts the signals. The neural decoder then translates the signals into speech commands for the speech synthesizer. Credit: Guenther, et al. ( -- By implanting an electrode into the brain of a person with locked-in syndrome, scientists have demonstrated how to wirelessly transmit neural...

Later this year, we will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall an event that changed not just Europe but the entire world. In a matter of months, millions of people in formerly captive nations were freed to pursue their individual and national ambitions. The competition that defined the post World War II era was suddenly over. What was once called the free world had so...
