Obama caught eavesdropping on his peers

Obama’s NSA has been caught monitoring the phone calls of 35 world leaders, which is not helping the already strained relations between the Obama administration and America’s used-to-be-besties.

Merkel Obama

On Wednesday, German chancellor Angela Merkel accused the US of tapping her mobile phone. White House press secretary Jay Carney swore the US “is not monitoring and will not monitor” the German chancellor’s communications. Berlin replied this in no way denied that Obama had not monitored Merkel’s phone in the past.

Well, yeah … cuz he so did. Add “When I’m president, everyone will LOVE us” to the long list of Obama’s broken promises.

Spinning the abortion narrative

I was particularly interested in the article linked below, because of its emphasis on hall width regulations. My hubby is an architect. I’ve spent hours typing reports for buildings he’s designed for group homes for the disabled, reports that had to be submitted to state authorities to prove these buildings met code on things like the sizes of windows, halls, and door openings.

This stuff matters. It’s about accessibility.

Any facility that is going to be inhabited must have sufficiently large windows to allow people to get out in case of a fire or other emergency. Any facility that is going to be used by people in wheelchairs must have ramps and halls and doors wide enough for their chairs to navigate. And out-patient surgical facilities must have ramps, doors and hallways wide enough to allow patients on stretchers to be transported to a hospital.

If you hear pro-aborts sneering about “onerous” hall width regulations, be aware that what they are rolling their eyes about are STANDARD CODE REGULATIONS that could mean the difference between a patient who has had a bad drug reaction or is bleeding uncontrollably making it to a hospital in time to receive life-saving treatment … or not. Here’s an example:

Sample code re stretchers and elevators

If ANY building with an elevator is required to have at least one that can handle an emergency stretcher, then how much MORE important is it that a building where out-patient surgery is done regularly have the same kind of regulations?

Virginia’s Blood-Spattered Abortion Clinics And Onerous Hallway Widths By Mollie Hemingway – October 25, 2013

http://thefederalist.com/2013/10/25/virginias-blood-spattered-abortion-clinics-lies-tell-ourselves-womens-health-care/

When an Arlington County, Virginia, judge ruled that a lawsuit challenging regulations of Virginia abortion clinics could move forward, the Washington Post ran a news report emphasizing that the clinic regulations even mandate the width of hallways. It said that providers worry that complying with the regulations would put them out of business. …

The soul of woman

The soul of woman must therefore be expansive and open to all human beings;

it must be quiet so that no small weak flame will be extinguished by stormy winds;

warm so as not to benumb fragile buds;

clear, so that no vermin will settle in dark corners and recesses;

self-contained, so that no invasions from without can imperil the inner life;

empty of self, in order that extraneous life may have room in it;

finally, mistress of itself and also of its body,

so that the entire person is readily at the disposal of every call.

~ Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross

Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross was born Edith Stein, a German Jew, on October 12, 1891. Her father died when she was very young and she later lost all faith in God. During World War I, she worked as a field nurse. In 1917, she was graduated with a doctorate degree in philosophy, summa cum laude.

Shortly after, she says, “my unbelief collapsed and Christ began to shine his light on me – Christ in the mystery of the Cross.” In 1922, she became a Catholic. She later wrote, “I had given up practising my Jewish religion when I was a 14-year-old girl and did not begin to feel Jewish again until I had returned to God.”

In 1934, she entered a Carmelite convent, making eternal profession in 1938. In 1942, the Nazis arrested and deported her with more than 900 other Jews. She was martyred at Auschwitz, probably on August 9.

St Teresa Benedicta

Teresia Benedicta McCarthy was born in Massachusetts on August 9, 1985. In 1987, after she had ingested 19 times the lethal dose of Tylenol for her age/weight, she was rushed to the ER, then transferred to Massachusetts General in Boston. Specialists there declared her liver had been hopelessly damaged. Without a transplant, she would die.

The family decided to pray to Blessed Teresia Benedicta, aka Edith Stein. On March 24, 1987, doctors in Boston recorded on Benedicta’s medical chart, “This child has made a remarkable recovery.”

The events were rigorously investigated by the Vatican. The Jewish head of pediatrics at Massachusetts General Hospital, one of several medical staff who agreed that they could in no way explain Benedicta’s recovery, testified to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints.

With this miracle, the Roman Catholic Church declared there was sufficient proof that God wanted us to know and honor Edith Stein as a Saint. Pope John Paul II officially canonized her October 11, 1998. Benedicta McCarthy attended the ceremony.

PETE’S FRIDAY FUNDAY PAGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

His signature achievement falling down around his elephantine ears,the boy-king goes fundraising.

New book reveals Boehner extorts money from companies before he holds votes on legislation….

He’s not only coward,he’s corrupt.

Mooch hasn’t been seen since the shutdown started…apparently flaunting lavish Spite House parties and jet-setting around the globe would look bad.

It’ll all still be here Monday.

Relax,take a deep breath  and maybe have a smile or two.

Since the Bears have a bye week,we’ve been invited to Uncle Roger’s house for dinner Sunday. I’ll see my cousins again,plus their children and their children’s children. (That would be third cousins,if you’re keeping up.)
