BENDING THE KNEE: Three reasons why Catholics genuflect [5:24] – “Because of this, God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” –Phil 2:9-11

ANTIFA is just one of these groups.
Click [1:40] to hear President Trump talk about the thugs who are committing these acts of domestic terror.
National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien says, “The reports we’re receiving is that this is Antifa. They’re crossing state lines. And we’ve seen this happen before. We saw it in Portland. We saw it in Seattle. We saw it in Berkeley.
“So, look, we’ll keep our eyes open for anyone else that wants to take advantage of the situation, whether it’s domestic or foreign…. Some of the group’s tactics include throwing bricks, crowbars, metal chains, water bottles, and balloons filled with urine and feces.”
President Donald Trump has announced that the United States will designate the ANTIFA a terrorist organization.
And Attorney General William Barr has said the Department of Justice would be prosecuting anyone who has crossed state lines to participate in riots.
Andrea Widburg at American Thinker says these are extremely important announcements, “because Antifa is more than just a terrorist group. It is, in fact, the paramilitary arm of the Democrat Party. …
“Antifa is to view it as the 21st-century version of the Ku Klux Klan. Back in the day, the KKK was the Democrat party’s terrorist arm. Now it’s Antifa, which is the Democrat Party’s brownshirts.
“In the media and in the halls of Congress, Democrats talk the language of politics while on the streets their black-clad, masked girls and boys smash heads….
“No wonder Susan Rice is already trying to blame the Russians for the riots. Expect to see a lot more deflecting from Democrats in the coming months.”
MEDIA MALPRACTICE: As the rioters destroy buildings, homes, and lives, the Left’s narrative is, “Nothing to see here, folks. This is just a peaceful protest.”
“I want to be clear on how I characterize this. This is mostly a protest. It is not, generally speaking, unruly,” he said, as flames shoot up into the sky just feet from where he’s standing.
BIDEN: In his public statements about George Floyd’s death in police custody, Joe Biden conspicuously left out any mention of the rampant civil unrest and mob violence plaguing Minneapolis and other cities across the country.
At least 13 members of his presidential campaign staff have donated to a group that pays bail to people arrested during the protests in Minneapolis.
The Trump campaign said it was “disturbing” that Biden’s team “would financially support the mayhem that is hurting innocent people and destroying what good people spent their lives building.”

HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE: Trump-haters made much of a report in The Lancet about a study that allegedly had linked HCQ with an increased risk of mortality in hospitals, and an increased frequency of irregular heart rhythms. The study led some to suspend using the drug for COVID-19 and for libtards like Joy Behar to declare anyone who took it was a moron.
The Lancet has now issued a correction.
It seems that more than a hundred scientists and medical professionals raised important questions about the validity of the study and the integrity of the data.
E.g., contributors weren’t listed, data wasn’t fully released, variances were small, and doses were larger than recommended by the FDA. In addition, one case listed more hospital deaths from HCQ than had occurred in the entire country during the study period.
NAPALM GIRL: The “napalm girl” famously captured in Nick Ut’s Pulitzer Prize-winning 1970s photograph has related her incredible journey from a pagan life of bitterness and hatred to a new life of love and forgiveness through her discovery of Christianity.
She says when she read the Gospels, she was captivated by the suffering she read that Jesus had endured in order to bring people like her the possibility of a new life. “I had never been exposed to this side of Jesus—the wounded one, the one who bore scars.”
Although Phúc previously hated her photograph, she came to change, saying, “today, I thank God for that picture. Today, I thank God for everything—even for that road. Especially for that road.”
She now realizes that had it not been for the bombs that dropped, she never would have wanted to become a doctor, never would have embarked on the path of studies, never would have encountered the Bible, and never would have become a Christian.
NIGERIA: A Nigerian bishop says, “Towards the end of last year I was in my chapel before the Blessed Sacrament… praying the rosary, and then suddenly the Lord appeared,” Bishop Dashe says.
In the vision, Jesus extended a sword toward him and he in turn reached out for it. “As soon as I received the sword, it turned into a rosary.” And Jesus then told him three times: “Boko Haram is gone.”
“I didn’t need any prophet to give me the explanation,” he said. “It was clear that with the rosary we would be able to expel Boko Haram.”
Bishop Dashe says he is being driven by a God-given mandate to lead others in praying the rosary until the extremist group disappears.
GRAMMY NOTES: “Remember when we used to say, ‘Don’t make that face or it could freeze that way’? It means so much more now that we are living in virtual meetings where it is entirely possible that your internet connection may freeze and the others in the meeting with you will watch as that face you made freezes.” – Buzz neighbor, Melissa
