I need some GOOD news

I didn’t sleep well last night, so I’m being gentle with me today. 🙂

FACT PP 20 to 1

Democrat Senators Joe Manchin (WV) and Heidi Heitkamp (ND) have publicly pledged to vote for Neil Gorsuch. Both are up for reelection next year in states where Donald Trump won by massive margins.


The Senate has passed a pro-life bill that allows states to defund Planned Parenthood, effectually overturning the HHS rule enforced by the Obama administration that prevented states from blocking Title X funding to abortion providers.  Senator Johnny Isakson, Republican of Georgia, had been away for two back operations.  So critical was this vote that he got his doctor’s permission to make the trip to vote Aye.  RINOs Collins (ME) and Murkowski (AK) voted with the Democrats, leaving the vote at 50-50.  Vice President Mike Pence cast the deciding vote.


North Carolina’s GOP-led legislature repealed the “bathroom” law, after agreeing to a deal with Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper to strip away its language requiring people to use only public bathrooms that match their biological sex.  Basically, life in NC public jons goes back to where it was, with trannies who can pass using the bathroom of choice, while blocking the creeps.


President Donald Trump appointed Roger Severino to lead the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Civil Rights (OCR).  Severino, a Harvard Law graduate, comes to HHS from the Heritage Foundation, where, according to his bio, he worked on religious freedom, marriage, and life issues and directed the DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society in the Institute for Family, Community, and Opportunity.


Former President Jimmy Carter said on the Laura Ingraham show: “I’ve signed a public letter calling for the Democratic Party at the next convention to espouse my position on abortion which is to minimize the need, requirement for abortion and limit it only to women whose life are in danger or who are pregnant as a result of rape or incest. I think if the Democratic Party would adopt that policy that would be acceptable to a lot of people who are now estranged from our party.”


This man’s ear was miraculously healed, thanks to the intercession of St. Katharine Drexel.  He relates, “I went into the hospital for an exploratory operation. The doctor told us that there were three bones in the ear that you needed to be able to hear, and two of mine in the right ear had been destroyed by the infection. He said I’d never hear in my right ear again.  A few days later, I told my mother that I could hear fine out of both my ears. The doctor gave me a hearing test and confirmed it.”  His healing was one of the miracles that led to Katharine’s canonization.


Life is unpredictable and doctors can be wrong!  Twenty-five years ago, Sandra Norman’s OB told her she should abort her unborn child.  They refused, but asked a priest to be at the hospital when their daughter was born so that she could be baptized. The grieving couple also picked out a coffin and dress for their daughter’s burial.  Their daughter Rachel now is 25 years old, has a college degree, and is engaged to be married. Though her inherited kidney disorder continues to be a struggle, she is glad to be alive.

    It is true that very good news is hard to find in a world overcome with greed,jealousy,hate and death.It is a big reason I stopped doing this.I did,however,find one little nugget:
    Exclusive: Doctors Perform Heart Surgery On Baby Still Inside Womb To Remove Tumor

    After some setbacks, an excited family who learned they were finally going home to South America said goodbye to the team that saved their baby.

    Baby Juan and his parents, Cecilia Cella and Pablo Paladino, are headed back to Uruguay where the infant has become a celebrity.
    Their doctor in Uruguay sent the images to his friend, Dr. Jack Rychik, who is the director of the Fetal Heart Program at CHOP.

    “The minute I saw this I recognized there was a giant tumor sitting on the heart,” said Rychik.

    It was a rare pericardial teratoma and the only hope was fetal surgery where doctors would operate on the baby Juan’s heart inside the womb.
    “His heart at the time of surgery was the size of a peanut. The size of the tumor was three-times the size of the heart,” explained Rychik. “Had we waited an additional day, we probably would have been too late.”

    Mike Pence Won’t Eat Dinner Alone with Any Woman but His Wife — Journalists Want You to Know It’s a Scandal

    Vice President Mike Pence told The Hill in 2002 that he will not eat alone with any woman but his wife. He also avoids events that serve alcohol if his wife is absent. Pence has cited his Christian faith as the basis behind his personal decisions.
    On Wednesday, the tidbit was featured in a Washington Post profile of Karen Pence — and it actually caused some controversy.

    Boing Boing journalist Xeni Jardin compared Pence’s decision not to dine alone with other women to the “repressive interpretations of Islam” and Sharia law.

      Satan’s war on all things God loves just keeps getting more and more blatant. Every one of the Left’s hot issues involves a violation of people and things that God especially cherishes.

    • Just think how different things would be if Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Newt Gingrich, David Petraeus, Anthony Weiner, and about a thousand other public figures had followed the Pence rule.
