The explosive revelations from the Wikileaks release of the contents of Hillary’s private e-mail server continue day after day. One of the most dismaying recent revelations is the coordination that has been revealed between the Clinton campaign and polling organizations, indicating that the campaign is paying these organizations to slant their polls to give more favorable results to Clinton. This may be done for a number of reasons: to make her election seem inevitable, to lower turnout for Trump, to give democrat supporters heart that they are part of not just the winning team, but a historically inevitable wave of progress, etc. But another reason exists that is more troubling, and is examined somewhat in the videos below. That is to lay the groundwork for electoral fraud on a massive scale, insuring Hillary’s election no matter who the people actually support.
I admit, that would normally seem far-fetched, but given early reports of voting machines switching people’s votes from Trump to Hillary here in Texas, and several recent admissions from democrat operatives that electoral fraud is a normal way they win elections, I don’t think it can be discounted.
Some background on how the push-polling works (push polling is a poll conducted deliberately not to gage real opinion, but to push opinion in a desired direction):
Earlier this morning we wrote about the obvious sampling bias in the latest ABC / Washington Post poll that showed a 12-point national advantage for Hillary. Like many of the recent polls from Reuters, ABC and The Washington Post, this latest poll included a 9-point sampling bias toward registered democrats.
“METHODOLOGY – This ABC News poll was conducted by landline and cellular telephone Oct. 20-22, 2016, in English and Spanish, among a random national sample of 874 likely voters. Results have a margin of sampling error of 3.5 points, including the design effect. Partisan divisions are 36-27-31 percent, Democrats – Republicans – Independents.”
Of course, while democrats may enjoy a slight registration advantage of a couple of points, it is nowhere near the 9 points reflected in this latest poll.
Meanwhile, we also pointed out that with huge variances in preference across demographics one can easily “rig” a poll by over indexing to one group vs. another. As a quick example, the ABC / WaPo poll found that Hillary enjoys a 79-point advantage over Trump with black voters. Therefore, even a small “oversample” of black voters of 5% could swing the overall poll by 3 full points. Moreover, the pollsters don’t provide data on the demographic mix of their polls which makes it impossible to “fact check” the bias…convenient.
Now, for all of you out there who still aren’t convinced that the polls are “adjusted”, we present to you the following Podesta email, leaked earlier today, that conveniently spells out, in detail, exactly how to “manufacture” the desired data. The email starts out with a request for recommendations on “oversamples for polling” in order to “maximize what we get out of our media polling.”
I also want to get your Atlas folks to recommend oversamples for our pollingbefore we start in February. By market, regions, etc. I want to get this all compiled into one set of recommendations so we can maximize what we get out of our media polling.
The email even includes a handy, 37-page guide with the following poll-rigging recommendations. In Arizona, over sampling of Hispanics and Native Americans is highly recommended……
There is a great deal more at the link. For those with shorter attention spans, like me, Milo Yiannopolous explains largely the same thing in video format, providing more evidence for how biased many polls have been:
I’m not a big fan of Alex Jones on a variety of levels, though some of his material has become more compelling to me of late, but this discussion provided in the comments earlier by reader Tim is also worth reviewing:
Uff da……Trump surely does rub me the wrong way. But the opponent is as close to the devil incarnate as this nation has ever seen in a presidential candidate.
I think it a bit bold to claim Trump has already won, but given the huge number of regular democrat voters crossing over to support him, who knows?
Milo brings up an extremely important point. The Brexit vote was a relatively close analogue to this 2016 presidential election. The concerns were the same: Brits felt their country slipping away from them via mass immigration and a culture spinning out of control, felt a near total disconnect from the self-anointed elites (the feeling was reciprocated, and then some), and voted to act to prevent their country from falling over a tipping point from which recovery would be impossible. In the Brexit, the elites constantly scolded the voters on how stupid they are, on how racist and homophobic, tried to frighten them that pulling out of the EU would bring instant and total economic ruin, and ginned up numerous polls that showed the remain side running away with a huge win right up to the day of the election. Interestingly, however, the elites remained very nervous and even on the day of the election said it was a tossup. Of course, it wasn’t, exit won handily, even though implementation is only being done grudgingly, if at all.
The Romney camp tried to argue that polls were biased against them in 2012, but the final result wound up being quite close to what the polls in aggregate had predicted. There were some reports of voter fraud in the 2012 election, too, however.
The media has been running an all-out campaign against Trump, just as they did in 2008 and 2012, but has gone even further, if possible, this time. Of course, Trump has provided much of the ammunition himself, but if we had anything like an unbiased media, Clinton would be in grave trouble over her far more damning, and dangerous, instances of corruption, lying, and outright law-breaking.
We’ll finally know in just under two weeks. I’ll be glad to have this election behind us. If you’re a gun person, I would stock up now, before prices skyrocket and availability plummets. If Hillary wins, and with her guaranteed to shift the balance of the Supreme Court enormously, there will certainly be a huge run on ammo and guns, and rightly so.
Oh, and get this: per the usual fantasy land the media constantly creates, USA Today warns of “election day violence” perpetrated by Trump supporters. They completely ignore the fact that virtually all the violence surrounding Trump rallies was planned, funded, coordinated, instigated, and carried out by paid professional demonrat party operatives.
But that little bit of truth doesn’t fit the narrative.
So what do you think – will Trump win? Let me rephrase that – will he win by sufficient margin to overcome the guaranteed fraud demonrats will engage in?
At any rate, do your duty as a citizen and Catholic and vote your conscience, unless that means voting for Clinton, in which case, you’re not a Catholic at all.

My aunt was killed this way. Her “nurse” kept her just absolutely blasted on opioids until she’d burned through all my aunt’s savings, then my aunt miraculously died literally the day the money ran out.
In hospitals, I wouldn’t doubt if half of all elder deaths are deliberate. We had another first hand experience of having to watch an elderly hospitalized person like a hawk in order to keep the medical staff from doing something horrible. With one nurse in particular, the desire to “end their suffering” was palpable. The individual in question was able to leave the hospital and died at home several months later, of natural causes.
Anyway, a nurse in Canada has been charged with at least 8 counts of murder for dosing patients to death, deliberately:
A nurse in Canada has been accused of preying on elderly patients at assisted living centers for nearly a decade — intentionally delivering fatal doses of drugs to them as she jumped from facility to facility, authorities said.
Elizabeth Wettlaufer, 49, was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder in the deaths of eight people, ranging between 75 and 96 years old.
Her victims included five women and three men — all of whom were patients at Caressant Care nursing homes in Ontario where Wettlaufer had worked.
“We are confident at this time that all of the victims have been identified,” Woodstock Police Chief William Renton said at a press conference.
Since Wettlaufer worked at several other long-term care facilities, officials said authorities haven’t ruled out the possibility of more victims.
The eight patients that have been identified so far were all administered a drug before their deaths, but officials have refused to say what kind.
“I’m not in a position at this time to comment of specifics of the drug,” said London Police Service Det. Sup. William Merrylees. [Because doing so might be politically inconvenient, say, because the drug is one commonly associated with
murder by doctor euthanasia?]
………After it was revealed Tuesday that Wettlaufer had been disguising her hits as harmless deaths from disease or old age, many of the patients’ relatives came forward saying they had grown suspicious of their care — including Horvath’s daughter.
In my experience, people often have suspicions. And those suspicions are often well grounded.
But for how long will it be illegal to involuntarily kill- murder – an old or sick person in this country? Even worse, how long will it be before sick people are forced to die by a corrupt government-corporate alliance that only cares about how much things cost, and not making people well? California’s approval of euthanasia is already having an entirely predictable effect- insurers are refusing to cover chemotherapy while eagerly paying for self-administered suicide drugs:
At age 29, Packer was diagnosed with scleroderma, a chronic autoimmune disease that causes scar tissue to form in her lungs. A doctor told her she had three years to live. Now 33, she has outlived the death sentence.
But as her condition deteriorates, she’s finding little support for her fight to stay alive.
Since California’s End of Life Option Act took effect, attitudes expressed by sick members of support groups she’s run or been involved with have changed to the grim. Where once members exchanged messages of hope, “people constantly are talking about, ‘We should be doing this [dying].’ ”
“I just wanted no part of it,” says Packer, a devout Roman Catholic. [and mother of 4, aged 7-13. Obviously pregnancy has been out for her for the past 4 years]
Then her doctors suggested that switching to another chemotherapy drug might buy her time. Her medical insurance company refused to pay. She says she asked if the company covered the cost of drugs to put her to death. She was told the answer is yes — with a co-payment of $1.20.
“My jaw dropped.”
Months later, after Packer threatened to tell her story to the media, the drug was approved.
It took barely ten years in Holland, Belgium, and similar countries for “voluntary euthanasia” to advance to “involuntary euthanasia.” If you can get a doctor in Holland to decree a life worthless, that person’s life if forfeit, regardless of age or condition or personal desire. Involuntary euthanasia is all the rage over there, with scores if not hundreds killed a year.
All we’ve ever done is run a few decades behind them. Open, legal murder of the elderly and sick will be here, soon enough, to the extent that a nurse like the one above may be impossible to prosecute.

I know probably most readers of this blog are already well-informed of Catholic Relief Services many nefarious activities and have long been indisposed to support them in any way, but for the record, because this is not an inconsequential development, Lepanto Institute has found that CRS acquired and distributed millions of contraceptives under USAID direction during the period 2006-10 in the Congo.
The reports are detailed and are based on CRS’ own internal, triple-checked inventories and disbursements. Note this all occurred while PBXVI was reigning, imagine what they are getting up to today:

Please pray for the Syrian Christians (and Iraqi, and Egyptian, and……), and help them if at all possible. Some recent demonic atrocities from the “religion of peace,” via Vox:
The sick jihadis killed children, the eldest was just four years old, in an industrial dough kneader in the Syrian town of Duma.
In a chilling testimony, one Syrian woman spoke of “Christians being killed and tortured, and of children being beheaded in front of their parents.”
Speaking to Dr Yvette Isaac, from advocacy charity Roads to Success, Alice Assaf said: “Our neighbour came in and said: ‘Umm Issa, they have taken many girls about 300 girls. They were taken to Duma. Many of them were Christians and few were Alawites.
“At the bakery, there were six young people who were working there. We knew them. They were burned in the oven, six well-framed men.
“Then there were 250 children. They were put in the dough mixer, they were kneaded. The oldest one of them was four-years-old.”
As well as dealing with ISIS, Duma has been the site of bloodshed and violence as the city has found itself at the heart of the Syrian civil war.
The brutal killings were highlighted by Congleton MP Fiona Bruce before Parliament.
Recounting Dr Isaac’s testimony, Mrs Bruce said: “She showed us recent film footage of herself talking with mothers–more than one– who had seen their own children crucified.
“She told us of a mother with a two-month-old baby. When Daesh knocked at the front door of her house and ordered the entire family out, she pleaded with them to let her collect her child from another room.
“They told her, ‘No. Go. It is ours now.’”
The horrific killings comes as ISIS continues to wipe out Christians in the Middle East, targeting believers in Iraq and Syria.
The report, by charity Open Doors UK, found Christians in the region have been taken hostage, church leaders assassinated, homes and businesses destroyed and women and girls raped and forced into sexual slavery.
ISIS terrorists took the Christian town of al-Qaryatain, Syria in August 2015, trapping the town’s 300 Christians and murdering 20 who tried to escape.
Christians returning to the town, which has been liberated by rebel forces, have found their homes and businesses reduced to rubble and landmines left by ISIS littering the town.
Before 2011, Syrian Christians numbered about eight per cent of the population of 22million. [Other data indicate it was more like 12-15%, numbering around 3 million]
Today about half are believed to have left the country. [Thus Christians are being finally and completely driven from our ancestral homeland, where Christians have lived for 2000 years, 600 years longer than any muslim. Indeed, the name “Christian” was created in Antioch in Syria]
Chilling. Christians, crushed between the vice of islam on the one hand and progressive meddling on the other.
As Vox Cantoris notes in several other posts, the United States government under Barack Hussein Obama is directly responsible for this ongoing genocide and cavalcade of unending, nightmarish atrocities. It was Obama who gave the green light for Syrians to rebel against Assad, and to Turkey to fund and arm them. It is Obama who has made practically every single possible error that could be made surrounding this hellish, unending conflict. It is Obama who is flirting with world war by antagonizing Russia as much as humanly possible, not only in Syria but in Ukraine and elsewhere.
The way things have developed, it’s almost as if Obama wanted to turn some of the most important countries in the Mideast over to the most radical muslims (go figure, from our first muslim president). Certainly he tried, but fortunately failed, so far, in Egypt. He largely succeeded in Libya. In Syria, he ran into a lot more opposition than he expected, and continues to not comprehend that, with Russian support, Assad is very unlikely to be removed from power. Now the best thing for the West (especially the US) to do is to focus on the real enemy (ISIS) or totally disengage. What the Syrian people, especially the few remaining Christians, need most at this time is not saber rattling or geo-political gamesmanship but the quickest end to the war possible. I pray the next president has the wisdom to stop trying to play god and meddling in the affairs of nations everywhere and terminates all these endless and totally fruitless wars*.
*- I’m okay with continuing efforts against ISIS if those efforts are done seriously and with a clear objective, and not the pretend war Obama’s been fighting for the last two years, spending billions of dollars burning up aircraft hours boring holes in the sky and dropping maybe one or two bombs a day on camel herds.
Posted by Tantumblogo in Basics, damnable blasphemy, different religion, disaster, Ecumenism, error, foolishness, Francis, General Catholic, horror, Revolution, scandals, secularism, self-serving, the struggle for the Church.
From one of Rorate Caeli’s most recent posts, several significant if perhaps unsurprising revelations from Francis I had missed, given that I now generally avoid him and his pronouncements as much as possible. Was the Church better off before instant worldwide communication? Hard to say. It was probably a lot easier on individual souls, however.
The slight – it can certainly be taken as such, and may well have been intended – against Our Lady in ignoring the 99th anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun in order to receive Lutheran heretics and schismatics in audience (while displaying a statue of the arch-heretic Luther in the Vatican) on the same day is truly breathtaking. But that’s just the start, as it always seems to be with the Argentine Bishop of Rome (my emphasis):
…..The start of the centenary of the Fatima apparitions on October 13th 2016 was buried under a blanket of silence. That same day, Pope Francis received in the Paul VI Audience Hall, a thousand Lutheran “pilgrims” and in the Vatican a statue of Martin Luther was honoured, as appears in the images Antonio Socci published on his Facebook page. Next October 31st, moreover, Pope Francis will go to Lund in Sweden, where he will take part in a joint Catholic-Lutheran ceremony commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. As can be read in the communiqué drawn up by the World Lutheran Federation and the Papal Council for the Promotion of Christian Unity, the aim of the event is “to express the gifts of the Reform and ask forgiveness for the division perpetuated by Christians of the two traditions.”…….[Which expression seems to imply at least an equal sharing of blame for this “division,” if not that more share falls on the Catholic side. Naturally, this is a complete inversion of reality, but that should hardly be surprising]
…….During his audience with the Lutherans on October 13th, Pope Bergoglio also said that proselytism, is “the strongest poison” against ecumenism. “The greatest reformers are the saints – he added – and the Church is always in need of reform”. [This strongly implies sainthood for Luther, does it not? How many of the Saints warred with all their being not just against protestant heretics but heretics of all stripes? I guess that fact just has to go down the memory hole for Francis] These words contain simultaneously, as is frequent in his discourses, a truth and a deception. The truth is that the saints, from St Gregory VII to St. Pius X, have [indeed] been the greatest reformers. The deception consists in insinuating that the pseudo-reformers, like Luther, are to be considered saints. The statement that proselytism or the missionary spirit, is “the strongest poison against ecumenism” must, instead, be reversed: ecumenism, as it is understood today, is the greatest poison against the Church’s missionary spirit. The Saints have always been moved by this spirit, beginning with the Jesuits who landed in Brazil, [No, it started long before that, with the first Apostles] the Congo and the Indies in the XVI century, while their confreres Diego Lainez, Alfonso Salmeron and Peter Canisio, at the Council of Trent, fought against the errors of Lutheranism and Calvinism.
Yet, according to Pope Francis those outside the Church do not have to be converted. At the audience on October 13th, in an off-the-cuff response to questions from some young people, he said: “I like good Lutherans a lot, Lutherans who truly follow the faith of Jesus Christ. On the contrary, I don’t like lukewarm Catholics and lukewarm Lutherans.” With another deformation in language, Pope Bergoglio calls “good Lutherans” those Protestants who do not follow the faith of Jesus Christ, but its deformation and “lukewarm Catholics” those fervent sons and daughters of the Church who reject the equalizing of the truth of the Catholic religion with the error of Lutheranism. [Indeed. Still more, what is being extolled here is one religion – modernist sexular paganism – while warring against the Faith instituted by Jesus Christ. That’s what this conflict has always come down to, from Tyrell and Loisy to Congar and Rahner to Bergoglio and Kasper]
All of this brings us to the question: what will happen in Lund on October 31st? We know that the commemoration will include a joint celebration based on the Liturgical Catholic-Lutheran guide, Common Prayer, elaborated from the document From Conflict to Communion. The Common Catholic-Lutheran Commemoration of the Reformation in 2017, drawn-up by the Catholic-Lutheran Commission for the unity of Christians. There are those who rightly fear an “intercommunion” between Catholic and Lutherans, which would be sacrilegious, since the Lutherans do not believe in Transubstantiation. Above all, that it will be said Luther was not a heresiarch, but a reformer unjustly persecuted and that the Church has to recuperate the “gifts of the Reform”. Those who persist in considering the condemnation of Luther proper and think his followers heretics and schismatics, must be harshly criticised and excluded from the Church of Pope Francis. But then again, what Church does Jorge Mario Begoglio belong to?
A rhetorical question, obviously, as to ask the question is to answer it.
As for just where Francis may stand in the grand scheme of things, including the state of his soul, a reminder from Saint Paul’s Letter to Titus, Chapter iii:
10 A man that is a heretic, after the first and second admonition, avoid:
11 Knowing that he that is such a one, is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned by his own judgment.
There have, of course, been multiple admonitions directed at Francis. We are generally not privy to the tack those interventions have taken, however.
I think one thing it is safe to say, Francis will not be the Bishop in white of the Third Secret? I can’t see the world taking shots at him, when he’s doing such an awesome job for them.

……where fact and fantasy are perfectly inverse according to the dictates of their ideology cum religious conviction. No group believes in more unsupportable fantasy masquerading as “fact” than the Left. No wonder they have such a hatred for Christianity, it is a religion founded on and informed by right reason, and thus incompatible with their mass belief in unicorns, climate change, Bigfoot, power crystals, and African witch doctor lightning powers.
As a case in point, a really offensive leftist named Russell Simmons – I’ve seen him cover himself in dung before – makes the preposterous claim that there are more “extremist” Christians in the world than muslims, and that the number one problem facing the world today is……..wait for it!……. so called islamophobia. This is such a perfect inversion of reality, only a leftist could come up with it, but given that such beliefs are increasingly prevalent among especially young people today, indicates dark portents for the future:
Russell Simmons joined Trevor Noah on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” on Monday to talk about “Muslims Speak Out,” a project he formed to deal with Islamophobia, which he called “the worst scourge we have.” [This is where most people 35 and under get their “news” and supposedly informed political opinion. No wonder a majority of millenials think socialism just grand]
He told Noah that people misunderstand the Muslim community and that “99.99-tenths of them are not radicalized, right?” And then he added the kicker: “Probably more Christians are radicalized.” [This is, a) numerically illiterate, b), demonstrably false, and c) stultifyingly stupid in the sense that his definition of radicalized means “I perceive it as a threat to my ideology”. 99.99-tenths means nothing, I guess he means 99.99 percent, but per cent, as in per centum, means per hundred, not tenths. Secondly, simply based on the numbers of militants engaged in combat on behalf of islam around the world today – some 7 million, minimum – out of a population of around 1.5 billion, indicates that 0.5% of muslims are actively engaged in radical activity. Aside from those, some 170 million, by the best reckoning, adhere to Wahhabist sects worldwide, which are nothing if not radical. Add into that the number that adhere to extremist forms of Shiaism, and something like 20% of muslims are fully radicalized even if not actively engaged in/supporting combat of one form or another. Even more, the problem with islam is that it has always been defined by the most radical elements, and has always been unique among major religions in always being spread through violent conquest, and never peaceful conversion.]
Of course, nothing of the sort is true, unless you accept the left’s definition of radicalization, which says that religious objections to sex outside of the biblical definition of marriage—and perhaps refusing to bake a wedding cake or having the expectation of privacy in the bathroom—is exactly the same thing as throwing homosexuals off buildings and stoning them to death. Simmons apparently thinks saying words that people find objectionable is the same as blowing people up. It’s hard to reason with individuals whose minds have been turned to mush by years of moral relativism. [I don’t think it’s mush, and I don’t think it’s moral relativism. I mean, yes, of course the idiocy of moral relativism informs all his thinking, but that’s just a means to an end. Leftism doesn’t adopt anything accidentally, and moral relativism is just another tool with which to attack Christ, His Church, and the values therein that built Western Civilization. I think he and his ilk know exactly what they are doing, and they are doing it on purpose, because the Left hates Christianity more than it hates anything else on earth, and that’s saying a lot. To him, Christianity is the uniquely evil religion in the world today, just as Western Civilization which was created by Christianity is uniquely evil and responsible for all the evils in the world today. Of course, leftists choose to think this, as they recognize in Christianity the only true obstacle to their goal of an Orwellian/Huxleyian world devoid of religion with an all-powerful left-wing government. To this end, islam is a valuable ally. Think on what this guy says, however, when I maintain, with mounting fervor, that once the Left and Islam are done crushing Christianity, they will not turn on each other, but leftism will happily, even eagerly, be absorbed into islam. Yes, there will be some who will not, but the vast majority will happily don the hijab and embrace Mecca, because the underlying objectives and orientations of leftism and islam are the same: a repressive society based on force and the will of the powerful, not on reason, charity, and liberty. In fact, leftism and islam are simply two sides of the same coin, dedicated to the overthrow of Christianity, and seeking the same ends: a cowed and ignorant populace with a narrow few at the top enjoying all the power, freedoms, and spoils. Plus, islam, especially for the powerful, is not at all inconsistent with false “pleasures” the Left likes to push – hedonism, easy access to women, even sodomy. This growing pact between Western leftists and islam is thus not surprising at all, it’s all about opposition to Christ and His Church, and thus has the same father. I must also add, in conclusion to this long comment, that the leftists/liberals/modernists in the Church have essentially the same modus operandi and goals.]
Simmons then turned his attention to Donald Trump, saying that until the GOP nominee came along, America had been moving toward a peaceful, loving “collective.” But now, “people need to blame their discomfort on someone else,” he said.
Which is also BS, it’s just a Hillary ad with a very thin disguise. Every four years, the Republican nominee – or, perhaps in future, whoever is opposing the demonrat – is presented by such people as the devil incarnate, as the uniquely evil threat that simply must be destroyed no matter how vile the democrat nominee may be.
Heck, they tried to turn the total RINO, milquetoast Mitt Romney into a seething racist, sexist, and crazed right-wing radical. It’s always, always about moving the ball forward, keeping the leftist momentum moving ahead at all times. It’s always about the next election, the next court case, the next referendum. They have a singular focus we should really try to emulate. And given that Hillary is the most singularly corrupt, narcissistic, incompetent, and downright evil candidate any of us have ever seen in our lifetimes, it has forced – even coerced – me to plan to vote for Trump, even though I have the gravest doubts about his conservative credentials and find his personal behavior not only toxic, but heart-breaking. To think my country has fallen to the point that either of these people could be elected president is the most damning condemnation of all, but there it is.
Twenty eight years ago, it would have been impossible. But that is how far we have fallen in such a short space of time. And Russell Simmons and his ilk are directly responsible for it. My vote for Trump will be as much a Francis Urquhart to them as anything else.

Feature, or bug? This is the entirely natural, predictable, and even just outcome to hideously amoral behaviors grounded in an ideology of boundless effrontery towards God and His moral order. God allows the natural (and supernatural) consequences of our actions to be both our rewards and our punishments. These consequences are plainly spelled out in Scripture and the natural law. Conduct your life in a hedonistic, animalistic manner, and this is the natural result: sky-high rates of disease, some of them incurable, and biased amongst the youngest populations.
Of course, the article waits until the umpteenth paragraph to tell us that, surprise!, much of this increase is centered in the growing men who have sex with men population, where rates of infection for very serious and increasingly difficult to treat diseases like syphilis and gonorrhea have exploded. That kind of information is still judged unhelpful to the ongoing re-paganization of the culture and the destruction of the moral order:
More cases of sexually transmitted diseases were reported last year than ever before, federal officials said Wednesday — just as state and local health departments that could help fight them lose funding.
More than 1.5 million people were reported with chlamydia, the most common sexually transmitted disease (STD), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported.
The CDC recorded nearly 400,000 cases of gonorrhea and nearly 24,000 cases of syphilis.
“The STD epidemic is getting worse in the United States and, in fact, is at its highest levels yet,” said Dr. Jonathan Mermin, director of CDC’s National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention.
The CDC reported a record year for STDs in 2014, also, but the trend is worsening, Mermin told NBC News.
“Last year was the first year that we saw increases but those increases are actually continuing and at a higher rate,” Mermin said.
The new numbers translate to a 19 percent increase in syphilis cases, a 13 percent rise in gonorrhea and a 6 percent increase in chlamydia, Mermin said………
…….Gay and bisexual men account for many of the new cases, and the biggest numbers are among young adults, especially those in their late teens and early 20s. “Half of all STDs occur in youth under age 20,” Mermin said……….
………Congenital syphilis cases hit a record high in 2015, CDC said. More than 430 babies were born with syphilis. “Up to 40 percent of babies born to women with untreated syphilis may be stillborn, or die from the infection as a newborn,” the CDC said.
- Belittle and attack Christianity, especially Catholicism, for generations
- At the same time, exalt the idea of fornication, adultery, serial divorce and remarriage, concubinage, etc., as either no big deal, or some wonderful, adventurous “phase” at least everyone, especially while young, should go through, if not the absolute preferred mode of living for all time
- Complete destruction of adherence to religious precepts and the moral law. Force religion from the public square.
- Spread indoctrination in the libertine lifestyle to younger and younger ages – deliberately propagandize schoolchildren into the sexular pagan ethos
- Exalt perversion as superior to traditional morality. Mock traditional morality at all turns.
- Constantly deride recalcitrant adult authority figures who counsel chastity, modesty, and decency, be they parents, grandparents, politicians, religious figures, etc. Make clear that all the cool people are addicted to uninhibited rutting; even more, make clear that in order to be cool you have to do same. Make being perceived as “cool” the height of social existence
- After decades of the above, express shock and dismay when rates of STDs among schoolchildren, the target audience all along, skyrocket. Demand absolutely no changes to the above program but more and more money for it. After all, it’s working like a charm.
Feature. Definitely feature, especially since several of the diseases skyrocketing have the side-“benefit” of rendering the afflicted individual sterile for life. Win-win to the child-hating, Christ-hating sexular pagan left.
Nashville bishop David Choby must be thoroughly pleased.

You folks know I have made clear, I am not a big conspiracy theorist. I guess I’ve lived a sheltered life, but I just now stumbled on this 16 year old video of Alex Jones and this place called Bohemian Grove in northern California, where Repubnik big wigs have met for over a century to hobnob, make plans, decide the world’s future, and, oh, by the say, partake in what sure looks like satanic sacrifice. Reagan, Hoover, both Bushes, Colin Powell, Dick Cheney, Nixon, Eisenhower, all went there, though apparently Nixon did not like the place.
This sicko druidic/devlish/satanic ceremony starts about 55 minutes in, but the whole things is worth a watch. I’ve never been a big fan of Jones or his schtick, but this is pretty good investigative journalism. Even if the highest up attendees didn’t think they were participating in a pagan sacrifice, isn’t it just plain bizarre enough to say “no thanks” to any kind of return visit?!!! Yet most of these guys go multiple times.
The implications are more than ominous. This would, in fact, explain everything. I have known Jones to say the New World Order types are into really sick stuff……..this is the first real bit of evidence I’ve seen. One thing I can say for certain, this is not Catholic or Christian. I would think any convicted Christian would be at least very much concerned and put off by this kind of stuff. But it seems our ruling elites of the supposed party of goodness have been steeped in it for a century or so.
This is some messed up stuff. I’m not sure I got the evidence of supposed human sacrifice taking place that Jones claimed, but it was definitely perverse, pagan, and far from Christian.
If this is what the Repubniks do, can you imagine what the demonrats get up to? I tell you, this is beyond disturbing, as I said, it explains pretty much everything, if this is what our perverse “elites” are into.
It seems to clearly indicate why this country’s government and culture have veered so profoundly pagan and anti-Christian. What else would one expect with the highest of the high taking part in this kind of thing?!?

…….that policy being to quietly but forcefully forbid priests from offering Mass Ad Orientem? That is precisely what occurred to more than one priest of this Diocese under former Bishop Farrell. I don’t know if the message was conveyed by “edict,” phone call, letter, e-mail, or carrier pigeon, but the message was conveyed, and the effect was immediate. I observed at least one case unfold before my eyes back in Aug/Sept 2008.
Eponymous Flower is reporting the Bishop of Fargo, John Folda, has done the same, but EF has received at least one denial from someone claiming to be a diocesan official, but the denial left a lot of wriggle room and subsequent questions were not answered.
At least four priests of the Diocese of Fargo, North Dakota have been forbidden by edict [at least a letter] from saying Mass the way Catholics have been praying it since the times of the Apostles. It’s not difficult to look for the source of such a diabolical animus against the traditions of the Church and the desire to confuse the laity…….
…….It is headed by Bishop John Thomas Folda, who was ordained for the diocese of Lincoln Nebraska and consecrated bishop on 19 June, 2013. He attended St. Charles Borromeo in Philadephia, which might be the source of his problem. One wouldn’t think a protege of Bishop Flavin wouldn’t be this bad.
We’ve gone through the motions and contacted the chancery, but they have not contacted us.
Feel free to contact the diocese about their deplorable ignorance of the traditions of the Church, if you can get through their menu maze. Diocese of Fargo: Liturgy “Expert” 5201 Bishops Blvd. S., Suite AFargo, ND 58104-7605 Phone: (701) 356-7900
I thought Lincoln was filled with naught but upright and orthodox men? Note the new Bishop of Tulsa who refused to renew Fr. Ripperberger’s nascent order of traditional exorcists (approved by former Bishop Slattery) in his diocese was also from Lincoln. That’s not supposed to be broadcast anymore, but it seems very relevant right now. Is Bishop Bruskewitz’ redoubt being deconstructed? I know they still ordain a whole pile of men a year.
