USCCB Continues Misinformation Campaign on DACA, Trump, Immigration October 3, 2017

Our diocesan newspaper some weeks ago had an article repealing Trump’s use of an executive order to repeal Obama’s executive order instituting the so-called Dream Act, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).  DACA has been surrounded by lies and misinformation ever since Obama enacted it, probably illegally and certainly unconstitutionally back in 2012.  The USCCB has continually been in the forefront of this campaign.  I’ll excerpt a few brief bits from the article to demonstrate how this dezinformatsiya campaign works:

Lisette Moreno was just 5 years old when her parents brought her from Mexico to the United States……..[The setup Obama and the Left has used to sell DACA is that we are talking about poor teens and even younger, just little kids we’d be throwing out of the country to fend for themselves in a hellish Mexico.  Because that’s how the Left views third world countries.  If not quite kids, they’re at least very young, maybe college students, etc. How could we be so mean?]

………Moreno is an active parishioner at the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe, and soon she and upwards of 800,000 people who were brought to the United States by their parents without documents could face loss of work documents and immediate deportation from a land that they know to one that is culturally in their blood, but foreign nonetheless. [Have there been any mass deportations, yet?  Any concrete plans developing to do so?  Or is this really more about overturning what was a politically unpopular and unconstitutional move – by executive action only, Congress was not involved, no law was every passed – in the first place?]

…….”When we were brought here as children, we went to school and our teachers taught us to dream big; our teachers taught us to progress, to be better, to set a goal and accomplish it,” said Moreno, who is now 34[They buried that little revelation at the end of the 6th paragraph in, well past the point when most people would have stopped reading.  So this is no kid. This is a grown woman, becoming close to middle-aged. Also, if she came here when she was 5, that means she came here 29 years ago, or 1988.  Which is, quite interestingly, just two years after the first shamnesty passed by Reagan, which was promised to be a “totes swearsie!” one time deal that would never recur, after which 2.5 million illegal immigrants were granted instant citizenship, the border would be closed firmly and we’d never have an illegal immigration crisis again. The lead up to the first amnesty was very well known.  But her parents came later, anyway. Did her parents give a thought to what might happen if they were deported, even split up, as was certainly very possible?  Does this Moreno show more allegiance to the United States than to Mexico? Does she still send remittances back?]

[Follows a parade of sad, meaningless, self-serving quotes from both our Bishop Burns and other figures in the Church]………Denouncements, criticisms, and outrage have come from many sectors across society: universities, Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, faith communities, and non-profit organizations. [All of which means absolutely nothing, since Trump was elected precisely to get a handle on the totally chaotic situation regarding illegal immigration and the southern border. A substantial majority of Americans oppose the “Dream Act” and the current immigration policy and desire a wall be built to drastically limit immigration (and drugs, and sex trafficking of minors, and a thousand other evils). I also note that every single one of the organizations listed either stands to benefit directly from continued unconstrained mass immigration through use of cheap labor/wage depression of native citizens, or through ideological alignment (adherence to leftism).]

……….Father Cruz Calderon, pastor of Santa Clara Catholic Church in Oak Cliff, called for prayers to unite, not divide. [See, when it’s what he wants, it’s unity.  If not, it’s division. Get it?]

“In my opinion, it no longer is about protecting and leading a country, but about authoritarianism,” he said. “This appears to be a partisan fight to revoke laws made by a previous administration to systematically say that those laws were wrong.” [First of all, it’s not a law.  A law is passed by Congress.  It was an executive order, and probably unconstitutional. And yes, guess what, the people rejected the unpopular actions of that previous Obama administration, and wanted them overturned.  So, we elected a new president who promised to do just that.  Your disliking the result is utterly immaterial, as is your attempt to calumniate without justification the duly elected President.Just so we’re clear, yes, very many Americans feel, with eminent justification, that pretty much everything the former occupant of the White House did was wrong.]

…….Moreno, one of the founders of the Peace and Justice Commission at the cathedral………[And we get that little revelation 20 paragraphs in.  So, she’s not exactly an unbiased observer, either.  She’s a dedicated activist.]

Sadly, and frustratingly, Trump has indicated he’d be happy to reinstitute DACA so long as it is done legally and constitutionally, e.g., through Congress. I really hope that doesn’t come to pass, especially so long as brick one has not been laid on the much-promised wall.

We can expect much more lobbying from the institutional Catholic press in favor of just that.  And, I am equally certain, even more disinformation and constant appeals to emotion.  The key point is to get people feeling and not thinking.  That’s exactly what articles like the above are designed to elicit, and are part and parcel of any well-orchestrated leftist campaign.

But, I hear our new Bishop Burns, in spite of his quotes in the article I declined to excerpt, is much more friendly to the Latin Mass than was his predecessor, who made it absolutely clear that there would never be a TLM outside of Mater Dei so long as he was around.  I even understand that a priest or two has been “given permission” – though by canon law none is required – to offer Mass Ad Orientem again, which now Cardinal Farrell had firmly squashed.

There might even be a possibility for TLMs outside Mater Dei, and in the northern part of the Diocese where there still exists much latent unsatisfied demand.  But let me counsel you folks, on the outside chance this occurs and there is a TLM in the north deanery, ATTEND IT.  Don’t let it die for lack of support.  There were many reasons the Novus Ordo Latin in Plano at St. Mark died, it was intended to be unsuccessful from the start, but, not showing up gave Farrell and his allies all the reason they needed to cancel it and to never permit such an “experiment” again.  Don’t let that happen, especially with a TLM.

Hundreds of Thousands of Polish Catholics to Pray Rosary Along Polish Border October 2, 2017

Wow. I wish my country was as Catholic as Poland:

Poland’s bishops have urged Catholics to join a mass rosary prayer along the country’s border to mark the end of the Fatima centenary, and pray for the salvation of their country.

Organisers expect up to a million people to join the “Rosary on the Borders” event on October 7, the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary and the anniversary of the Battle of Lepanto – where “the Christian fleet” saved Europe from “Islamisation”. [Why the scare quotes, Catholic Herald?  It was not a Christian fleet, but an entirely Catholic one.  The protestants were allied with the rampaging, marauding Turk. And yes, it is widely believed by most historians that had the Catholic fleet under Don Juan of Austria been destroyed, much of Christendom would have been lost.  It was only a few  years before that the Turk made his first siege of Vienna, and he was still occupying vast tracts of Christian lands.  But the protestants were allied with the mohammadans, and so declined to participate in the defense of the Christendom they had sundered, and left.]

“We believe that if the rosary is prayed by about a million Poles along the borders of the country, it may not only change the course of events, but open hearts of our compatriots to the grace of God,” the organisers say on their website.

The Polish bishops’ conference has endorsed the event, and asked all Catholics to join the rosary prayer even if they are physically unable to make it to the border. [Even with Francis all but canonizing every muslim economic migrant/invader into Europe?  OK I exaggerate, but he heaps praise on them and speaks in their defense constantly.  Good for the bishops of Poland, though they may have distanced themselves from the political nature of the event (I really don’t know)]

“Families may pray in their homes, sick in hospitals, and parish communities in their churches,” they said.

“A hundred years ago, Mary gave these three Portuguese children a message of salvation: repent, give reparation for sins against my Immaculate Heart and pray the rosary,” the bishops added. Rosary on the Borders is a “special opportunity” to fulfill that calling.

How beautiful.

Poland is having a major fight with the EU-trying-to-be-totalitarian-superstate over acceptance of muslim invaders/”immigrants” (a term far more worthy of scare quotes).  The EU is demanding all member states take their quota of muslims. Poland, Hungary, and Czech Republic have refused to accept any significant number of these immigrants.  Poland in particular has apparently refused to accept any.  If you look at a map of terror attacks in Europe,, you see that Poland has, by some astonishing freak of nature, had none!

So perhaps a rump Christian Europe will remain, centered not in the west but in the east?

If the “Alt-Right” Wants to “Save the White Race,” Maybe They Should Start Having a Few Babies September 7, 2017

Lots of unsaid assumptions built into that post title – by “alt-right,” I’m referring to the media definition of the alt-right as the pseudo/neo-nazi or openly racialist portion of the far right, which isn’t even right wing, in that many are former Obama voters and Bernie supporters, most are avowed statists, and even worse, collectivists.  They simply have a nationalistic/racialist component to their statist views (as all good Nazis do), and are happy to use the state to purge society of racially/ethnically undesirable elements.  They are also the inevitable reaction to the Left’s use of race and ethnicity relentlessly as tools to gain and hold onto political and economic power.

That’s not to say concerns over immigration and the effect it is having on the political, economic, and cultural future of this nation can simply be dismissed as “racism,” as the statist media constantly tries to do.  There are many points the alt-right brings up which are entirely valid.  But racialism is always destructive, and it is very sad to see many leaders in the Church engaging in it (just practicing their preferred religion when they do).  It also undermines the overall (and entirely just and reasonable) opposition to current US immigration policy, attempts to build a wall or otherwise enforce more sensible immigration laws, in giving the media, on a silver platter, exactly the kind of racialist/white nationalist image they then turn around and tar the entire effort with.  It’s not helpful, and I increasingly wonder whether much of this former leftist “alt-right” isn’t false flag/astroturf.  I mean, who could possibly think a torchlight rally replete with racialist chants would be a good idea?

Nevertheless, Sargon has a pretty good video (language warning, however) pilloring the “alt-right” for lambasting others for not being sufficiently anti-semetic or in favor of white nationalism, while noting that the widespread sterility among white nationalist leaders and rank and file makes their claims to be so very concerned about the fate of the white race just more LARPing from the millennial crowd.  If you’re so worried about the great white ‘Murican race being swamped in a sea of brown, why don’t you settle down, get married, and have a bunch of kids?  And become Catholic, while you’re at it, very possibly saving your immortal soul:

As for me, I just want everyone to become Catholic.  Really, truly Catholic, not pseudo-, post-conciliar Catholic.  I have grave concerns over illegal immigration and extremely high immigration rates in general not out of any racial sensitivity but due to the effect it has on the poorest in our society, leaving them jobless or badly underpaid as they compete against a huge cohort existing in an underground economic status where they can be paid trifling wages that are unjust. There are also many cultural and social factors to consider in continuing mass immigration, especially considering the explosion in muslim immigration into this nation over the past 15 years or so.  I also have concerns over Hispanic Catholics coming to the US, falling into the materalist lifestyle and philosophy here, spiritually starving to death in the Novus Ordo Church, and falling away from the Faith in vast numbers.  I estimate probably 60% of the Hispanics in Irving are either fallen away Catholics or completely converted to protestant sects.

There are also extremely significant national security issues dealing with the unprotected southern border.  Build a wall – the single most cost-effective and efficient mechanism to gain control over the current chaos along the southern border – and then we can talk about sensible immigration policy going forward. But first, the crisis must be dealt with.  Unfortunately, it increasingly seems Trump will not be able to keep his primary campaign promise to build a wall.  If funding is not included in this year’s budget, I’m certain it never will be, at least with Trump as a Republican.  I tell you, I am so done with the Republican party at this point.  I am completely, totally disgusted with them.  They have done everything possible to undermine and oppose Trump at every turn.  After numerous wave elections, the revolt in 1994, the Tea Party movement, with unprecedented control of all three branches of government, all they have brought is failure and capitulation.  The Republican party is 3/4 dominated by secretly or openly leftist, and always corporatist, gadflies. I’m just about sick of the whole mess at this point.  What we have in the US at present are two left-wing parties, one far left and the other center-left.  I increasingly believe the only way forward is to break up at least one of the parties and rebuild the two party system with one or two wholly new parties with very different alignments and bases of support.  Clean out as much of the current self-serving, lobbyist-chasing, money-grubbing crowd as possible.

And on a final, but unrelated note, regarding yesterday’s post on evolution being the seed-bed for the collapse of Christianity, consider the following from another Youtube channel.  How much of what we believe is literally programmed into us through the incredibly powerful indoctrination tool most all (still, sadly) have as the centerpiece of the layout of their living rooms (and often bedrooms, and kitchen, and…….), the TV?  How much of a role has TV played in programming people to accept not just evolution, but things like pseudo-sodo-marriage, abortion, euthanasia, sexual license, et. al.,?  As Father Phil Wolfe says, the best thing you can do with your TV is take a shotgun to it:

 

Trump Emphasizes Christians in Refugee Admission August 3, 2017

Some really good news out of the Trump Administration.  Not only has Trump switched focus on refugee admissions from Middle Eastern countries disastrous US policies have left ravaged from muslims (radically preferred under Obama) to Christians, the rate of change is growing rapidly – while Christian refugees were a slight minority in March (from being a huge minority a year ago), they are now the solid and growing majority:

The first six months-plus of the Trump administration have brought a discernible shift in the religious affiliation breakdown of refugees admitted into the United States, with a larger proportion of Christians to Muslims among those resettled.

Most of those who have arrived since President Trump’s inauguration would have begun the application process long before – it can take 18-24 months – but the change is nonetheless striking: More than half of those admitted under Trump (51.2 percent) are Christians, compared to 43.3 percent of those who arrived during the same period one year earlier under President Obama. [While the process may take a long time, policy swings can quickly result in huge shifts in terms of who gets admitted.  The Obama admin had long favored muslim “refugees” (re: economic migrants?) to a marked degree. Note I have seen much different data from what CNS is reporting at the link.  In the past I had seen data that declared the vast majority of Syrian refugees admitted to the US were muslim, with Christians virtually unable to get admittance. The data at CNS is worldwide, which I think makes up much of the difference]

Some graphs that put things in perspective quickly:

This is entirely right and just, not only are these Christians far more suited to assimilation in this country, they have also been the victims of a concerted genocide (or attempted one) by jihadi muslims, who seek to wholly depopulate Christians from their ancient ancestral home (where they predated muslims by 5-6 centuries, depending on the locale).  Plus, we as a nation put these sorely afflicted nations, or most of them – Iraq, Syria, Egypt, etc – on their path of endless internecine conflict and religious persecution.  We owe these people a very great deal.  The aggressors in this campaign of cultural and religious extinction should be looked at with a much more callous eye, at least so far as their admittance to this nation as so called refugees is concerned (bear in mind the European example, 80-90% or more of those refugees are just economic blood suckers looking for generous welfare benefits).

So good on Trump. While his legislative agenda is being killed by the Grand Ol’ Party of 2/3 leftist hacks pretending to be conservatives, at least on the executive side he is doing a great deal of good.  Now hopefully he’ll be able to make another Supreme Court appointment or two, and provided they are good, I’d be quite satisfied with him as a president.  At the very least, he’s not Hillary Clinton.

A word about this Russia act being put on by the Left, which again includes essentially every elected democrat and probably half to 2/3 or more of Repubniks at the federal level – of course it’s utter crap, but it’s also a display of brilliance on two fronts.  First of all its a brilliant display of the Leftist tendency to always project their own evils onto others – there is far, far more evidence of collusion between democrats and the Russian government (re: the Clintons) on an illegal basis (such as those revelations last week, of course swept under the rug by the media, of this Fusion GPS outlet being both the primary source of all this Russia material in the press and being a front for Russian gov’t intelligence work) than the tiny hints of impropriety pointed at Trump, that the media steadfastly works into a constant frenzy.  But at the same time, it is a brilliant tactical move, because when the evidence eventually comes out, and it will, that it is the democrats who were colluding with the Russians far more than Trump or any Republicans, and it is the democrats who routinely rely on vote manipulation/fraud to win elections, the dems can simply shout that the revelations are all political, that it’s all cover for Trump, that it doesn’t matter, etc., etc, knowing the leftist media will carry water for them 24/7.

In the Gospel for the 8th Sunday after Pentecost our Blessed Lord tells us that the children of this world are wiser in their generation than the children of light.  We’re seeing this displayed on a daily basis.

Oh, and Mueller is a corrupt statist hack who is BFFs with disgraced Clinton protector and former FBI head James Comey.  Mueller has now convened a grand jury to continually harass Trump as part of the statist campaign to kneecap his administration before it even starts.  We are learning a very great deal about both the real beliefs of many players in DC (including the self-anointed “conservative” commentariat and political class) and the way the game is rigged, and it is absolutely shocking how correct “conspiracy theorists” like Alex Jones and others have been all along.  I do not see how this is going to have a happy ending.  Things are not settling down, they are building to a crescendo.  I cannot prognosticate what that will look like, but I don’t think it’s going to be Ozzie and Harriet.

What do we do with a Republican party so corrupt and so unwilling to even pretend to govern according to the will of the people?  We are always told third parties don’t work but the Republicans and Democrats have not always and forever been the two choices. There have been third parties that have held vast influence up to and including the presidency (the Whigs, for one).  But what has to form, and very quickly and adroitly, is a mass movement away from the existing party structure and into a new one.  I don’t know if this is possible, and there is always the risk that a split in the right will lead to Lefitst “ascendance” through power gained after winning a plurality, a la Spain in 1931 and Chile in 1970.

It’s beyond me what to do.  I haven’t had the time to think about it.  Perhaps you have some good suggestions.  As confirmation of my claim that the Republican party, at least at the federal level, is still dominated by statists/secret leftists/friends of Leviathan, you can be sure that this Congress will fail miserably in funding legislation to build a southern border wall, which was the primary reason people elected Trump.  You can tell just how effective walls are by the opposition that exists among the powers that be to allow one to be built.

Millions of Illegal Immigrant Votes Probably Cast in the 2008, 2012 Presidential Elections June 22, 2017

Horrifying, but I’m quite certain this is the case.  Another post on a quite different topic in an unrelated publication noted the massive shift the democrat party underwent on immigration between the mid-2000s and today.  10-12 years ago, major factions in the demonrat party were in favor of limitations on immigration and controlling the southern border – by fence or whatever means.  But since then, the party has embraced the same hard, absolutist position on totally unconstrained illegal immigration as the Catholic episcopate – a few exceptions aside – has.  They have done so for wholly political reasons, as dems have known for 20 years that demographics among the native-born population (and especially the white population) were entirely against them.  Politics correlates very strongly within families, and core members of the dem constituency were not having babies, while conservatives were.  By 2040 without massive changes to the American electorate through immigration, the Dems would be a permanent minority party at the national level.

So, much as Euro elites have done, when the electorate did not correspond to their ambition, leftist elites decided to find a new electorate rather than reconsider their failed religious beliefs.  It seems this effort has been a big success, as a recent report has assessed that as many as 6 million illegal aliens voted in the 2008 presidential election  – a huge factor, but not quite enough to, by themselves, account for Obama’s victory – and another 4 or 5 million voted in the 2012 election (enough that Romney may well have won that election. We must also consider the other electoral fraud demonrats regularly engage in, from ballot-stuffing to repeat voting to blocking conservatives from voting.  It is little wonder that demonrats stridently oppose both constraints on illegal immigration and voter ID laws – they cannot win outside their narrow coastal enclaves (plus Chicago) without massive electoral fraud:

A report from the conservative/libertarian think tank Just Facts shows that up to 5.7 million people who cast their ballots in the 2008 presidential election were non-citizens. The group used data from a Harvard study as well as U.S. Census Bureau data to arrive at that conclusion.

Just Facts also estimated that up to 3.6 million non-citizens cast their vote in 2012.

Just Facts’ conclusions confront both sides in the illegal voting debate: those who say it happens a lot and those who say the problem nonexistent.

In one camp, there are groundbreaking studies by professors at Old Dominion University in Virginia who attempted to compile scientifically derived illegal voting numbers using the Harvard data, called the Cooperative Congressional Election Study.

On the other side are the professors who conducted the study and contended that “zero” noncitizens of about 18 million adults in the U.S. voted. The liberal mainstream media adopted this position and proclaimed the Old Dominion work was “debunked.” [Given 18 million – it’s probably far higher than that – illegals in this country, there is ZERO chance that zero of them have fraudulently voted.  Democrats are so focused on – and cover up with such fervor – their get out the vote efforts in Hispanic neighborhoods, and demonrats so freely admit their fraud in other areas, there is no way illegals are not voting.  I’m quite certain millions are, and illegals underlie demonrat hopes to turn Texas “blue” or at least purple. We must get that wall built, NOW]

The ODU professors, who stand by their work in the face of attacks from the left, concluded that in 2008 as few as 38,000 and as many as 2.8 million noncitizens voted.

Mr. Agresti’s analysis of the same polling data settled on much higher numbers. He estimated that as many as 7.9 million noncitizens were illegally registered that year and 594,000 to 5.7 million voted.

It is little wonder that democrats and the political-cultural elite they control are so hell-bent on keeping the mass influx of immigrants continuing unabated.  Their entire electoral program hinges on it, at least so long as they remain wedded to elitist, leftist political/religious dogmas. I see little chance of their core beliefs changing.  So I pray President Trump and the few good Republicans in Congress start focusing ALL their efforts on building the wall and getting a handle on this mass influx. The very survival of this nation as it has always been construed depends on it, if that survival can even be attained at this point.

There is, however, a certain irony from the Catholic point of view in seeing the historical protestant core/elite of this country swamped in a flood of Catholics.  Of course, the Church is so weak and rotten at present that most of those fall away a few years after arriving here.  I had some sad experience of that lately.  Actually, sad, but then happy.  A young Hispanic man at our local TLM parish described to me how his parents had come here in the early 80s, gotten amnestied in ’86, and then become protestant and started a family. This young man was thus raised protestant, but their protestant sect house in Grand Prairie started going liberal – as they almost all tend to do over time, since they are man-made institutions (not that our God-made institution is without its human flaws) – and he started learning about Catholicism.  Long story short, he converted, and he managed to get most of his family to revert, but they were shortly disgusted by the liberalism, false doctrine, horrid liturgy and other grave problems they found in Novus Ordo world.  And so that is how this young man found himself at the Fraternity parish in Irving.  Wonder of wonders, his elderly grandmother who pined for an authentic Mass for decades after emigrating to the US finally got to experience it just a few days ago.  When they started going back to the Catholic Church in the US, grandmother wondered at the plethora of Eucharistic ministers, the casual and immodest dress, and the poor quality of the liturgy.  She was mightily pleased by her experience at Mater Dei, apparently.

God can draw straight with very crooked human lines.  A family fell away by immigrating to the US, but managed to return, and quite possibly find a much more robust practice of the Faith, by coming to this country.  The TLM is rarely available in Mexico, at least outside Mexico City and Guadalajara and a handful of other places.  Our God is great.

Muslims, Incensed by Truth Regarding the False Prophet Mohammad, Cry Bigotry June 6, 2017

This is the billboard that is the source of muslim ire around the nation:

Every single statement made on that billboard regarding the false prophet and conceiver of the demonic sect of islam is true.  It is that man’s evil vision, literally an inversion of Christianity, that continues to cause mass chaos around the world on a daily basis, with over 100 non-muslims being killed by muslims for religious reasons DAILY worldwide.

And yes I have in previous posts laid out numerous reasons why Mohammad was a completely false prophet (for one, not a single miracle worked to substantiate his claims of divine inspiration, then there are the satanic verses (of the early Koran, later expunged), where Mohammad fell under satan’s influence/domination, then there are the murderous exhortations throughout the Koran, then……….) and inventer of a demonic, deliberately anti-Christian sect.

But muslims gonna muzzle, so they are shouting bigotry at these stark revelations concerning the founder of the most backward, repressive, totalitarian, murderous major religion on the planet:

A billboard on the east side of Indianapolis is catching the eyes of drivers, along with the ire of local Muslim groups.

You can spot the sign from the southbound lanes of I-465 near the Washington Street exit. It claims to list the “perfect man,” but opponents say it degrades the Muslim prophet Mohammad.

“I was a little disappointed when I saw that,” said Farial Khatri of the Islamic Society of North America.

Opponents say the billboard’s bullet points are meant to disparage the Muslim faith and its primary prophet, Mohammad.

“We’ve seen them in New York and several others cities on billboards as well as other transit ads,” said Kahtri.

There’s no company name or identifying group on the display, but Google “Truthophobes,” a word seen at the bottom of the billboard, and you’ll find a range of websites rife with anti-Muslim messages.

“We do support free speech, but we do realize this is also rooted in bigotry,” said Kahtri.

Other groups say they want to do more than just speak out against the display. The Muslim Alliance of Indiana says it’s planning to raise money to put up its own billboard nearby to spread a message of peace and kindness.

Note, they don’t refute a thing said on the billboard.  They cannot refute the message, so they shoot the messenger.

Regarding this counter-campaign, these typically operate on a similar basis of half-truths and selective revelation.  Signs like the below have appeared in certain parts of Dallas:

These signs are placed in locations that obviously seek to capitalize on any frustrations and indignations held by certain minority communities.  But notice they don’t speak of islam’s treatment of women as little more than chattel.  Nor the rampant abuse of children in countries ruled by sharia.  They’ve learned selective messaging very well from their leftist allies/abettors.

If you’d like to take a stand against creeping sharia in the US, right here in the DFW area, there is going to be a protest against sharia this Saturday June 10 2017 at  10a and runs to 2p.  Location is corner of Abrams and Centennial in Richardson.  More details here.  The protest location is directly across the street from a major mosque.  I think most people park at the “Christian World Church” at the same corner.  It is catty-cornered from the mosque.

About this protest.  Previous editions have involved armed Americans.  The most recent one featured some scuffling against antifa.  That one was weird, the muslims turned against the antifa guys.  But at any rate be prepared for something less sedate than your average prayer vigil outside a Planned Barrenhood or March for Life.  These things can get intense, with lots of in your face shouting and pushing.

I sorely wish I could go.  I’ve been wanting to attend one of these for a while now.  They originated in Irving then spread to Richardson. I’ve also wanted to have a go at antifa. But I have a funeral to attend at noon the same day.

Regarding the muslims, I would be polite but firm that they belong to a horrifically erroneous sect.  Explain their dire need for conversion.  I would not be violent, rhetorically or otherwise.  As to antifa, be as violent as you like.  At the last protest they hired Black Panthers to be their “muscle,” since they so pathetically lack their own organic enforcers.  I would strongly recommend body armor and headgear if you have any.  Also a respirator that filters most inorganic gasses (like CS) and something to protect your eyes.  Antifa love to use the bear spray.

But if  you’re local and planning on going, you’re welcome to the Kek flag if you want to borrow it.  I do hope there is a good turnout, as Benjamin Franklin said, we have a republic, if we can keep it:

h/t reader skeinster

Speaking of Kek, some more greatness to get you fired up for the protest:

Swedish Report Confirms 3/4 of so-called Islamic Child Migrants Are Adults – Also Overwhelmingly Male May 31, 2017

As Sargon notes, who knew there were so many racists in Sweden?  After all, we’ve been told that to do even a basic sociological study on the mass muslim invasion of Europe by military-age men constitutes racism, so apparently decades of socialist enervation and white liberal self-loathing have not quite driven the racism from the damnable Swedes (I can say that, being part Norwegian). Uff da.

Seriously, this only confirms what anyone with a brain, that is, anyone not consumed by cultural marxist dogma, has long known: the “child refugee crisis” in Europe is nothing of the sort.  They aren’t children, they aren’t refugees, and the crisis has been created by the political/economic elites in Europe (and, with a different immigrant population, in the US).  This is an invasion of military-age males from the muslim ummah into Europe primarily seeking economic and social benefits:

If the “18 females and 563 males” are representative of the overall muslim invasion population – and since this was a formal sociological studies we have no reason to think they are not – 97% of the so-called “child migrants” are actually adult muslim males, almost universally of military age.

Also note that when the muslims find things in Europe not to their liking, such as finding Finland too cold and the food too bland, they LEAVE!  These are not thus people desperately fleeing a war zone, they are economic migrants looking to take some long, slow pulls on the Euro-welfare teat.

The video also notes that at least 2/3 of so-called “child migrants” in Britain are also adults.  And also overwhelmingly male.

More on the whole Euro-migrant scam.  These migrants transit just a few miles off the coast of Libya where they have – it appears – pre-arranged pick-up points with leftist NGO ships or leftist-Euro-government navy ships.

The entire thing is a scam from beginning to end is entirely about turning Syracuse or Salerno into Beirut or Benghazi (I kid you not):

Just as leftists in the US are determined to remake the US body politic into something far more leftist-friendly through mass immigration, they are doing the same in Europe.  Will Europeans continue to allow this to happen? Will Americans?

Man I get so sick of the lies and false propaganda spewed forth by these self-anointed elites constantly.  It really has to do with classism, and apparently wealthy white graduate-degree-toting leftists hate the middle class so much they’re determined to make their lives hell throughout the West.

Dallas Diocese Opposes Texas “Anti-Sanctuary” Law……. May 15, 2017

……..apparently endorsing lawlessness and law-breaking on the part of municipalities and others. Or, probably more accurately, but even more pernicious, a double standard when it comes to the law: the leftist coalition that provides (bribes) the Church to the tune of about $100 million per year for ostensible services for immigrants, legal and otherwise gets special rights and privileges, while others get the full force of the law.

At any rate, I was very sad to see one local priest I have always thought highly of strongly endorsing this diocesan effort to oppose a very fair and common-sense law.  I should also add that the Diocese of Dallas has stepped up its efforts in support of illegal immigration of late, lending support for a recent mass march in downtown Dallas in favor of immigrants rights (that only drew 3000 people, far, far less than the 100,000 predicted by its organizers):

Their message was direct: Break silence, speak out.

Their target: The impact of a new law that expands local law enforcement power over immigration matters and is billed as “anti-sanctuary.”

Senate Bill 4 was signed into law on Sunday by Gov. Greg Abbott and goes into effect Sept. 1.

“This law does not make Texas more safe,” said the Rev. Rudy Garcia, the Catholic rector at the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe. “In fact, it makes all of us less safe as it discourages people from reporting crime and wrongdoing to local authorities, who now have to act like ICE agents.” [No, it is intended to avoid things like the recent case in Boston, where a legal immigrant green card holder was deliberately given a 364 day sentence by liberal prosecutors there, because green card holders who serve more than 1 year in prison can be deported.  That is, can be, not automatically or always are.  This was the prison term given for TWO armed robberies.  The same man turned around and murdered two people not long after getting out of jail.  They were unavailable for comment on the Diocese’s reflexive immigration endorsement.]

Garcia quoted from another pastor at a news conference Thursday at the Latino Center for Leadership Development in downtown Dallas, attended by more than a dozen clergy members, lawyers and social activists justice warriors.

It was the now-deceased Martin Niemoller who was an outspoken foe of Adolf Hitler. The lines attributed to him begin: “First, they went after the socialists and I did not speak out because I was not a socialist.” [Got that, Trumpistas? You’re all fascists, just like Adolf Hitler.]

………In a tearful exchange at the news conference, Dinorah Sierra introduced herself as an immigrant mother who was “indocumentada,” without legal immigration status. [She is here illegally.  She has broken federal laws, laws that are far more strict and far more rigorously enforced in Mexico and most lands from which the vast majority of illegals hail.  She is demanding, in reality, special rights and privileges for herself at the expense of those native born.]   She said she didn’t want to leave her home to attend the event. “But it gives me strength to see so many organizations united fighting for our rights,” Sierra said.

“Many of the buildings downtown have been made by Hispanic hands,” she said with her voice trembling.  ”The vegetables have been picked from the dirt by Hispanic hands, even though they don’t want us.” [Note the clever switch, from the issue of immigration to the issue of race.  The not-so-subtle implication is that if you oppose measures to curb illegal immigration and deport those here, you only do so from a standpoint of racism.  This entire press conference appears to have been conducted deplorably, relying on character assassination and reflexive appeals to emotion rather than logic or even rational analysis on the level of virtue.  I imagine that is because there is so little rational argument on the pro-illegal immigration side.]

About that, continued mass immigration, especially illegal but also legal, can often be, and in the case of the US I think manifestly is, unjust to the poorest of US citizens because this mass immigration artificially depresses wages, especially among the poorest and least skilled.  The Church is in this case helping keep wages depressed and tens of millions of US citizens out of work.

Throughout Catholic moral theology, it is an established precept that one’s duty in virtue applies first to those closest, and then radiating in a sort of concentric circles to expanding groups of people from the neighborhood, perhaps then to the parish, then to the city, the state, the region, the country, etc.

Thus Catholics have a higher moral duty to their fellow citizens than they do to those of other nations.

But for what to many appear to be selfish reasons, the Church has chosen to subordinate the rights of those who have a higher moral claim to those who have a much lower one.  So much lower, in fact, that on the matters involved – citizenship, access to social services, access to jobs, etc – it is quite arguable that citizens of those other countries have almost no claim at all, at least not when those claims put them in direct competition with natives of this country.

And I have left out entirely two enormously important factors that almost never get mentioned: the destruction of the family that frequently occurs with illegal immigration, with spouses and children often abandoned in the native land and bigamous marriages conducted here (and entirely as a matter of choice), and the fact that from the Church’s perspective, nearly half of this flood of Hispanic immigrants will leave the Church for the sects within 20 years, and an even larger proportion of their children will do the same, whereas the percentage of Catholics in Mexico (from which a huge majority proportion of the illegal immigrants come) has been relatively stable over the past 20 years, which means support for illegal immigration is support for a clear and present danger to the Faith, and, hence, the eternal destination of millions of souls.

Of course, the super with-it “church of accompaniment” established in 1965 cares little for such minutiae.  As I was told over and over again in San Antonio last week, All Dogs Go to Heaven, and concepts like hell and purgatory are just hoary old obsolete ideas that have no place in the new church, with a new pentecost, established in the sainted Sixties.

Two Videos Demonstrating the Left’s Willingness to Submit to Islam March 30, 2017

I’m out of time, but here’s two good videos.  If the language is bothering folks, please let me know and I’ll stop posting this stuff, but this is too good.  A really radical, out n’ proud lesbian feminist in Canada not only wore the hijab in a Canadian mosque but also agreed to enter through a back door – as fitting for a woman – and then sat in a back corner, because everyone knows God finds the sight of women horribly offensive, so offensive that their mere presence somehow magically invalidates any prayers offered:

Moronic PM Justin Trudeau was asked about this, and all he could do was blather meaningless platitudes that said absolutely nothing other than the tired leftist mantra, “diversity is our greatest source of strength” (which has, BTW, never even been remotely proven, or even grounds established  upon which the claim could be based):

His response reminded me of this old Monty Python sketch, especially at 7:30 (WordPress refuses to let me start a video at a particular time):

Michael Palin makes a brilliant Himmler.

In Horrible Decision, Anthony Kennedy Allows Trial Verdicts to be Nullified if Jurors Are Found Insufficiently Politically Correct March 15, 2017

This story did not get much coverage, but has the potential to be huge.  It will almost invariably lead to endless appeals and an end to the anonymous jury system, with jurors being investigated after the fact for any beliefs that might exonerate those found guilty of crimes.  It also fits in perfectly with the general left-wing assault on civil liberties ranging from practice of Christianity to freedom of speech to freedom of association.  Now jurors can be publicly excoriated if they are found to have uttered something politically incorrect at any point prior to or during a trial involving some “minority.”

Naturally, “Catholic” Anthony Kennedy sided with the Supreme Court’s left-wing minority to decide the issue.  He is the most powerful man in America by a long shot, and was never elected to so much as dog catcher:

A recent Supreme Court ruling turns criminal justice on its head, putting the jury on trial for political incorrectness and letting the criminals run free. Pena-Rodriguez v. Colorado is utter lunacy:

After a Colorado jury convicted a Mexican man of sexual harassment, two jurors signed affidavits that a retired police officer on the jury had expressed racial animus during deliberations. The juror was reported to have stated that “nine times out of 10 Mexican men were guilty of being aggressive toward women and young girls,” among other slurs. The defendant’s counsel sought to overturn the conviction based on racial animus but was denied by the trial judge.[Who declares that statement to be a slur?  It might be wrong, it might be a slur, but it could also be a mere statement of fact.  Who gets to decide what constitutes a slur?  Yet another power acceded to an unelected, unaccountable jurist?]

Civilization has been protected from verdicts being retroactively nullified due to alleged flaws of the jurors for centuries, thanks to the no-impeachment rule rooted in English common law.

As Justice Anthony Kennedy explained in the 5-3 majority opinion this week in Pena-Rodriguez v. Colorado, the rule “promotes full and vigorous discussion by jurors by providing considerable assurance that after being discharged they will not be summoned to recount their deliberations” or otherwise harassed. It also “gives stability and finality to verdicts.”

Yet Justice Kennedy joined the Court’s four liberals in Pena-Rodriguez to overturn that standard for accusations of racial bias. [Remember, Anthony Kennedy was the man possessed of the god-like power to peer into the souls of tens of millions of Americans opposed to so-called same-sex marriage, and find nothing but bigotry and blind animus.  This is the creature that decides the fate of hundreds of millions of people.]

What exactly constitutes “racial bias” that should result in the verdict being overturned? The Supremes don’t say, guaranteeing endless appeals on grounds of alleged juror political incorrectness.

Presumably it will still be possible to incarcerate white male heterosexual Christian criminals. All other guilty verdicts are likely to be held up indefinitely while the jurors are retroactively investigated for any indication of ideological impropriety.

The ruling is a step toward corrupting juries with political standards based on the progressive obsessions with race, gender and class.

Beyond that, it is a step toward reducing our legal system to a dysfunctional farce.

Indeed. If there is an extreme imbalance in the failing US constitutional system of checks and balances, it is in the judiciary.  Every single leftist advance in the culture, going back decades, has come from the judiciary, not the people themselves.  Even constitutional amendments have been found “unconstitutional.”  Basically anything a left-leaning judge does not like can be found to be unconstitutional, and rationalized on the most ephemeral of precepts: emanations from the penumbras, and all that.  Amazing.

As far as turning the legal system into a dysfunctional farce, to those who want to see the United States, as it has been, destroyed, this is a feature, not a bug.  Anything that undermines people’s support for the USA That Was is good to them, as they think it will bring forth their much longed for revolution.

Of course, the vast majority of the people longing for revolution today will be among the first lined up and shot should it occur.  Along with millions of other relative innocents.

So now you have another reason to strive to get out of jury duty.
