STATUES: CLICK to see Nancy Pelosi talk about the eleven statues of racists that Democrats want removed from the capitol. I know Pelosi is annoying, but this video is actually pretty funny, cuz it outs all eleven as Democrats.

While I believe it is imperative that we never forget our history lest we repeat it, I also believe that there is no room for celebrating the violent bigotry of the men of the Confederacy in the hallowed halls of the United States Capitol or in places of honor across the country,” Pelosi wrote.

Five more Democrats whose statues should be removed if Democrats are serious about this include,

Presidents Andrew Johnson, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Lyndon Baines Johnson, and Senator Robert C Byrd.

Authentic Priesthood

The New York Times recently printed an article about the “brave” priest who has come out as gay. The article quotes him saying, the priesthood “is not a closet. It is a cage.”

In today’s climate, there is NOTHING “brave” about coming out as gay. NOTHING. What was brave was the powerful response another priest published … which has been removed from Twitter.

2020_06 18 not brave

Fortunately, somebody copied it.

“I have no patience for priests who ‘come out’ as gay and insist the priesthood is some sort of cage. Nobody forced you to become a priest. The faithful don’t need to deal with your issues, pal. They don’t deserve to deal with any of our issues. We serve them. Period.

“Priests who insist they ‘can’t be who they are’ in the priesthood mean to say ‘who they are’ isn’t a priest as the Church has ‘always’ understood priesthood. The last thing the faithful need are priests who make their sexuality their primary identity.

“‘Being gay’ and ‘coming out’ may seem to you, Father, as being true to your authentic self, but that’s contrary to your ordination, which makes your authentic self a person in persona Christi in the service of the people of God.

“If you can’t live that way, if you can’t give yourself freely, without making your sexuality “a thing” in this equation, then be a man, be noble, and as our Holy Father Pope Francis says: leave the priesthood.

“The same is true, btw, of any priest who finds himself engrossed and completely distracted by the attention and subtleties of the fairer sex. If your priesthood is about being with women you’re attracted to, your thoughts and language always sexual, you’ve got a problem.

“A Father cannot help his children if he’s a broken distracted mess of a man requiring them to pick him up and set him aright. That’s the classic role reversal of a dysfunctional family. It has no place in the priesthood and the Church.”

– Fr. Thomas Petri, OP

Illegal Insurrection

2020_06 17 jacobson

Long-time Cornell Law School Professor William Jacobson has been formally denounced by the Dean of the Law School for telling the truth. He talked to Mark Levin about what’s been happening to him.

LISTEN TO THIS!

We need to be prayed up, people! I’m not being cynical here when I say this is going to get worse. It’s been prophesied … repeatedly. It. Is. Going. To. Get. Worse. If you and Jesus aren’t closer than close, you’re not going to have access to the graces you need to persevere.

NEW YORK CITY: Tens of thousands of people were permitted to gather for a protest outside the Brooklyn Museum on Eastern Parkway, to rally against racial discrimination.

But the hundreds of contact tracing workers hired by the city under de Blasio’s new “test and trace” campaign have been instructed not to ask anyone who’s tested positive for COVID-19 whether they recently attended a demonstration or protest.

Meanwhile, Jewish children are being singled out for having had the unmitigated gall to PROTEST against continued city restrictions on playgrounds and parks.

NEVER TRUMPERS: Republican Voters Against Trump, a new addition to the Never Trump ecosphere, is planning to spend $10 million on television and digital advertising in key battleground states.

The group is focused on transforming Republican voters who backed Trump in 2016 into supporters of presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

NEVER TRUMPERS: Recently, a disturbing array of retired generals have leveled serious accusations against Trump and called for him to be removed from office.

Retired and active duty military questioned why the vocal four-star officers previously remained silent on issues and policies that sent American troops to their deaths.

I thought our leaders are supposed to be neutral,” one soldier said. “They are acting like political partisans. That, and the level of groupthink mob mentality, shakes me to my core.”

Another noted the disturbing and sudden rush by retired flag officers to call the Commander-in-chief “the greatest threat” just now “while rioters loot and burn the country, while anarchists attempt to take over an American city, and while many are now calling for the abolition of entire police departments.”

John Dowd, a former Marine Corps Judge Advocate and former Trump legal advisor, said that these men are violating the UCMJ, which prohibits such behavior.

They’re all subject to recall. They’re subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice until they die.”

Stilton on Chaz

2020_06 15 Stilton

In the newly formed principality of CHAZ (the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone), the only thing actively being produced is irony – and plenty of it. The leader (an admittedly hazy distinction) is a local rapper with an AK-47 and enough gold rings to pay for all of the commune’s needs…if he was willing to give them up, which he’s not. Apparently seizing his property for the people is still unacceptable.

CHAZ has erected border walls to keep out foreigners and demands voter-unfriendly (and likely racist) photo IDs at checkpoints. The local citizenry divides its time between demanding that all land be seized for communal farming, and begging for food that someone else has produced. To paraphrase Steve Martin in “The Jerk,” land and freedom and autonomy are all they need. And food and ice and Gatorade. That’s all! Land and freedom and autonomy and food and ice and Gatorade are all they need. And Cigarettes. And clothes. Land and freedom and autonomy and food and ice and Garorade and cigarettes and clothes and shoes and solar chargers and pillows and flashlights and Tracfone minutes and folding chairs and body lotion. That’s all! And disinfectant.

While we’ve previously suggested going Branch Davidian on these numbnuts, our better angels have spoken to us and we now realize that this situation should be handled non-violently. So rather than drag them out of CHAZ, we keep them in. As in permanently. And we cut off the flow of all of those items that they want for free but haven’t earned.

Let them break up the streets and plant their crops. Let them turn dumpsters into dwellings. Let them defecate on the sidewalks and drink rainwater from the gutters. And let them see just how long one a**hole can hold on to his gold rings without help from the police.

Perspective

2020_06 15 Perspective

For a small amount of perspective for snowflakes during these crazy times, imagine you were an American born in 1900. When you are 14, World War I starts, and ends on your 18th birthday with 22 million people killed. Later in the year, a Spanish Flu epidemic hits the planet and runs until you are 20. Fifty million people die from it in those two years. Yes, 50 million.

When you’re 29, the Great Depression begins. Unemployment hits 25%, global GDP drops 27%. That runs until you are 33. And there was no welfare, food stamps or bailout money. You were mostly on your own. The country nearly collapses along with the world economy. When you turn 39, World War II starts. You aren’t even over the hill yet.

When you’re 41, the United States is fully pulled into WWII. Between your 39th and 45th birthday, 75 million people perish in the war and the Holocaust kills six million. At 52, the Korean War starts and five million perish.

At 64 the Vietnam War begins, and it doesn’t end for many years. Four million people die in that conflict. Approaching your 62nd birthday you have the Cuban Missile Crisis, a tipping point in the Cold War. Life on our planet, as we know it, could well have ended. Great leaders prevented that from happening.

As you turn 75, the Vietnam War finally ends. Think of everyone on the planet born in 1900. How do you survive all of that? A kid in 1985 didn’t think their 85 year old grandparent understood how hard school was. Yet those grandparents (and now great grandparents) survived through everything listed above.

Perspective is an amazing art. Let’s try and keep things in perspective. Let’s be smart, help each other out, and we will get through all of this. In the history of the world, there has never been a storm that lasted. This too shall pass.
