The Warning

Over the past five centuries, an End Times event has been prophesied repeatedly by Catholic visionaries. The event is called The Warning or The Illumination of Conscience, a time when God will reveal Himself to everyone on Earth and reveal to each one how He sees them.

It will last a very short time, but its effects on the world will be huge.

For some, the truth will be devastating, even lethal (due to the shock). Some will harden in their sins and reject God forever, while others will see it as a sign of hope for the world and will turn from their sins and beg for God’s mercy.

For those who are prepared, the event will be joyful, for those who truly love the Lord can only be happy to see where they can improve to be more like His perfect vision for them.

Here are some of the prophesies:

I pronounce a great day, not where, in any temporal potentate should minister, but where in, the Terrible Judge, should reveal all men’s consciences and try every man of each kind of religion. This is the day of change.” – St. Edmond Campion (1540–1581)

A great purification will come upon the world, preceded by an Illumination of conscience in which everyone will see themselves as God sees them.” – Blessed Anna Maria Taigi (1769–1837)

Once I was summoned to the judgment (seat) of God. I stood alone before the Lord. Jesus appeared such, as we know Him during His Passion. After a moment, His wounds disappeared, except for five, those in His hands, His feet, and His side. Suddenly I saw the complete condition of my soul as God sees it. I could clearly see all that is displeasing to God. I did not know, that even the smallest transgressions, will have to be accounted for.” – St. Faustina Kowalska (1930s)

The Warning will be “like a punishment, for the just and the wicked alike. For the just, to bring them closer to God and for the wicked, to announce to them, that time is running out.” – The Blessed Mother to the seers at Garabandal, Spain (1960s)

The maturity of conscience, most difficult to evaluate today, is the discernment between evil and good. Humanity has performed so many evil deeds that its conscience is now darkened by sin. We will need a terrible warning, and many will refuse to listen—a terrible warning. Most people will not heed it, but it will be essential to replace the moral order. Many have lived using their freedom for every kind of pleasure, and they are under the gaze of our God; but this judgment will be direct—at the same time, with His tenderness—and they will be forced to recognize their sin and to separate their sin from their goodness. This time, the sins of the world will be revealed.” – Saint Pope Paul VI (1897-1978)

It is a Warning. It has to be seen… this has to shake us up, so the world will start thinking… but to prove there is a God… the first Warning will be self-explanatory.” – The Blessed Mother to the seers at Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzgovina (1981)

The day is coming when mankind will have a great chance to repent. God will show a great sign and mankind will have no explanation.” – The Blessed Mother to Pedro Regis in Anguera, Brazil (1987)

N.b., Some prophesies cited in documents about The Warning are from people whose visions/locutions either have not been approved or have actually been condemned by the Roman Catholic Church. These include (but are not be limited to) Nancy Conyers, Father Stefano Gobbi, Sadie Jaramillo. Jesus warned us about false prophets; I recommend caution when reading such material.

ARIZONA: On Friday, a judge ordered Maricopa County to provide some 2.1 million ballots from the Nov. 3 election to the Arizona state Senate and allow access to its election equipment to conduct an audit.

BORDER: There has been a record surge in unaccompanied minors crossing the border and more are expected.

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris savaged President Donald Trump for keeping “kids in cages.” But now they’re doing the same thing — and undoing the Trump policies that had mitigated the underlying problem.

CANADA: The Magpie River in Côte-Nord, Quebec, has been granted legal personhood by the local municipality. In accordance with Innu customs and practices, the Alliance has granted the river nine rights: 1) the right to flow; 2) the right to respect for its cycles; 3) the right for its natural evolution to be protected and preserved; 4) the right to maintain its natural biodiversity; 5) the right to fulfil its essential functions within its ecosystem; 6) the right to maintain its integrity; 7) the right to be safe from pollution; 8) the right to regenerate and be restored; and perhaps most importantly, 9) the right to sue.

In other news, unborn human beings are still classified as property.

EDUCATION: CLICK https://twitter.com/VenturaReport/status/1364834752990048258 [2:19] to hear part of a California school board meeting. One member noted that 70 – 80% of the parents in the district want their schools to re-open and said they needed to set a date.

The board vice president sniped at her saying she was new and didn’t know what she was talking about. “We don’t have to give anybody any date! We don’t have to do anything that we don’t want to do right now. That’s what you don’t understand. I don’t know where you’re getting your information, or who’s telling you that we have to make a decision today, but that is not how this works.”

She also argued that “forcing” teachers back into classrooms before they receive COVID-19 vaccinations “seems like a very white supremacist ideology” and is akin to “slavery.” Thankfully, she and her opinions were in a minority of one and the board voted to reopen schools in April.

MINIMUM WAGE: Pelosi is determined to keep $15/hr minimum wage in the COVID-19 bill.

Raising the federal minimum wage is a great way to kill jobs, bankrupt small businesses, and make it harder for low-skilled workers to find employment. This is what real legislated poverty looks like.

The radical Left is pushing hard for a $15 minimum wage, but they won’t stop there. Squad member Rashida Tlaib is already calling for a $20 minimum wage, and billionaire Tom Steyer is pushing for $22/hour.” – Ben Shapiro

MUSLIM HOSTILITY: Find the time for this one. [31:36] – This video is not easy listening, but it’s more important than ever that we understand where devout Muslims are coming from.

MUSLIM MODERATES: This piece will mean a lot more if you first watch the “Muslim Hostility” video above – On Thursday, the Pontifical International Marian Academy (PAMI) in Rome launched a 10-week webinar series titled “Mary, a model for faith and life for Christianity and Islam” in collaboration with the Grand Mosque of Rome and the Islamic Cultural Center of Italy.

The series is pushing Mary as “a Jewish, Christian and Muslim woman” who responds “to the genetic codes of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.” Even on it’s face, that statement should strike everyone as absurd. Yes, Mary was a Jew and she is a Christian. Not only was Islam not even invented until hundreds of years after her time on Earth, but also it denies that Jesus died and rose from the dead.

The idea that she somehow became a Muslim in Heaven should be deeply offensive to every Christian who honors the Perpetual Virginity of the Blessed Mother, because Islam apparently presents Mary, the Mother of Christ, as being married to and copulating with Muhammad in Paradise.

N.b., the call-to-monotheism link below refutes this claim, saying that, while the line about Mohammed having once said, “Surely Allah will marry me to Mary,” is in a hadith, it is a “weak” hadith. That is, there is little historical evidence that it dates back to Mohammed.

That being said, during his televised Arabic-language program, Dr. Salem Abdul Galil — previously deputy minister of Egypt’s religious endowments for preaching — gleefully declared that, “our prophet Muhammad — prayers and peace be upon him — will be married to Mary the Virgin in paradise.”

NEW MEXICO: On Friday, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) signed a radical pro-abortion bill into law, legalizing abortion up to birth legal and eliminating conscience protections for doctors and nurses.

Grisham issued a statement celebrating the new law, because it will supposedly promote “equality for all.

Anyone who seeks to violate bodily integrity, or to criminalize womanhood, is in the business of dehumanization. New Mexico is not in that business – not any more. Our state statutes now reflect this inviolable recognition of humanity and dignity.

NIGERIA: On Friday, armed attackers abducted 317 girls from a boarding school in northern Nigeria. The attack is the latest of several mass kidnappings in the West African nation.

According to the AP, a number of large factions of armed men in Zamfara, a state in northwestern Nigeria. The government describes them as bandits and say they often use abductions to obtain money and get their jailed members released.

Law enforcement and military forces are working to rescue the girls.

OUIJA BOARDS: When I was quite young, a teen neighbor got one for Christmas and it inspired my mother to warn me off, citing the Bible and Church teaching. I am grateful; I think it saved me a world of hurt.

PORKULUS: The House has passed a new $1.9 trillion “spend America into bankruptcy” spending bill. This so-called “COVID relief bill” is a poorly disguised wolf in sheep’s clothing that plunges us even deeper in debt to advance the Progressive Globalist Elite’s agendas.

The final version passed by the House was scrubbed of protections for the unborn that had been in all previous relief bills, including the Hyde Amendment that protects pro-life Americans from having their tax dollars used to kill unborn babies.

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS: Good dog!

SOTU: It’s appropriate that the true winner of the election should give it.

COVID-19: The White House press corps is outraged at the plan to charge them $170 each for the required COVID-19 test that allows them to get into a daily briefing. The White House says that testing all the journalists over the past year has busted its budget. I get that. But why $170 per? The tests are sold individually for significantly less. Surely, the White House could get them in bulk for even less than the retail price, right? Also, if every one of those people has tested negative before being permitted into the briefing room, why are they always wearing masks that make it difficult for anyone to understand them when they ask a question?

EDUCATION: CLICK https://twitter.com/JesseKellyDC/status/1365029422127005698 [:19] to hear one excellent reason to home-school.

And here’s another. A North Carolina high school civics teacher had his students report whether they consider themselves Democrats or Republicans. Then, he not only posted the answers, but read out the names of the students who answered “Republican.” It wasn’t long before those students were being bullied.

One mother said, “My daughter was worried. She said, ‘I just want to cry. Everybody is being so mean to me.’ That teacher put a target, he outed these children.” She said the teacher has apologized and that she hopes future lesson plans in civics will start with civility.

ELECTION INTEGRITY: The RNC has launched a new initiative to bolster election integrity. RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel said, “We must do everything in our power to ensure that future elections are run free, fair, and transparent, and that includes holding election administrators accountable. Voters across the country are keenly interested in knowing that their states and localities are doing everything they can to clean up their voter rolls and faithfully administer their states’ election laws.”

During his Thursday show, Dan Bongino says election reform is one of the two most important issues for Republicans going forward. The other is the cancel culture.

ERIC SWALWELL: On Thursday, Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) said that Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) have “forfeited their right to question security precautions at the Capitol” because they voted not to certify the 2020 presidential results.

Last December, it was revealed that Swalwell had had close relations with suspected Chinese spy Fang Fang (who also went by Christine Fang). She worked as a “bundler” for Swalwell’s 2014 House re-election campaign, raising money convincing high-money donors to write big checks. An intern she recommended was hired to Swalwell’s Congressional office.

Swalwell cut all his ties to Fang after he was alerted by the FBI that Fang was under investigation as a possible spy for the CCP. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) suggested Swalwell “probably ought to just resign from Congress.” The Democrat-majority House of Representatives has him sitting on the House Intelligence Committee.

GENITAL MUTILATION: Worth watching – CLICK https://twitter.com/CalebJHull/status/1364983286251061251 [5:31] to hear Senator Rand Paul confront FAUXTUS’ transgender nominee for Assistant HHS Secretary Rachel Levine.

Lefties condemned his concerns as being “transphobic.” People who aren’t stupid Leftist sheep condemned her support for mutilating minors “appalling.”

NEW JERSEY: Infringing on parents rights is a key element of the Left’s plan to destroy America. And in New Jersey, they made another gain.

On Monday, Democrat governor Phil Murphy signed a new law that prevents law enforcement officials from informing parents when their minor children are caught smoking marijuana or drinking alcohol.

Parents were blindsided by the legislation, having never been given the opportunity by lawmakers to offer any feedback before it passed.

NON-EQUALITY ACT: The House passed their misnamed “Equality Act” in a 224 to 206 vote. The bill now moves to the Senate for consideration. If they pass it, FAUXTUS has promised to sign it into law.

If enacted, which seems likely given the Democrats have a slim majority in the Senate, it will make those with distorted sexual orientations and gender identities protected classes under civil rights law. The bill would also eliminate religious liberty protections in the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993.

Opponents justifiably fear it will dismantle Title IX protections for girls’ sports, shut down religious foster and adoption agencies, eliminate conscience protections for health care workers, expand taxpayer funding for abortion, censor teachers and ministers on gender and sexuality issues, and force women’s shelters and female prisons to house vulnerable women with biologically intact males.

Three Republicans voted with House Democrats in favor of this abomination: Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, New York Rep. John Katko, and my own New York Rep. Tom Reed.

POLICE STATE: Feminist author Naomi Wolf once served as an adviser to former President Bill Clinton during his 1996 re-election campaign. In 2007, she published a book she wrote about totalitarianism and how tyrants consolidate power, The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot.

On Monday, she told Tucker Carlson that “under the guise of a real medical pandemic, we’re really moving into a coup situation, a police state situation.” She believes it “should bring together left and right to protect our Constitution.

In her book, she wrote that tyrants “always do the same 10 things” and that in the U.S., we are now at step 10. “That’s the suspension of the rule of law, that’s when you start to be a police state, and we’re here. There is no way around it.”

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS: An ER nurse with a career spanning more than 35 years was on the way to her daughter’s wedding when she made an impromptu stop after witnessing a two-vehicle crash. Clad in a beautiful floor-length gown, she set to work, and after saving a life, she arrived at the wedding venue just in time to walk her daughter down the aisle.

RUSH LIMBAUGH: Rush Limbaugh was laid to rest Wednesday in a private ceremony at a St. Louis, Missouri cemetery. He died on February 17 at the age of 70 after a battle with lung cancer.

SAINT OF THE DAY: Gregory was an Armenian monk who lived humbly and taught at the monastic school. He is usually pictured holding a book, because he compiled 91 prayers into an encyclopedia of prayer for all nations. His Book of Prayer, written more than 1,000 years ago, is still in print.

He is venerated as a saint by both the Roman Catholic and Armenian Catholic Churches. On April 12, 2015, Pope Francis officially proclaimed Saint Gregory of Narek to be a Doctor of the Church.

Doctor of the Church” is a title given to certain saints whose writing provides outstanding spiritual guidance to the faithful in all times and places.

SPYGATE: Recently declassified reports show the FBI’s efforts to spy on the Trump campaign were more far reaching than previously disclosed. Agents directed confidential human source Stefan Halper – codenamed “Mitch” – to make secret recordings, pressed for intelligence on numerous GOP figures, and sought to find “anyone in the Trump campaign” with ties to Russia who could acquire dirt “damaging to Hillary Clinton.”

SYRIA: In 2017, Jen Psaki criticized Trump’s decision to authorize air strikes on Syria. “What is the legal authority for strikes? Assad is a brutal dictator. But Syria is a sovereign country.” In 2019, Sleepy Joe said, “Trump’s erratic, impulsive actions are the last thing we need as Commander-in-Chief. No president should order a military strike without fully understanding the consequences. We don’t need another war in the Middle East, but Trump’s actions toward Iran only make that more likely.

On Thursday night, FAUXTUS approved an airstrike on infrastructure in the still-sovereign country of Syria. Official say the strike was in response to a series of recent rocket attacks against U.S. targets in Iraq. FAUXTUS said it was a message to Iran: “You can’t act with impunity.”

State of the Union Address

The U.S. Constitution mandates in Article II, Section 3, that presidents “shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.

It’s always been up to POTUS to decide when and how they fulfill this obligation. Until Wilson, most of them have submitted their reports in writing. But modern U.S. presidents have generally given their annual “State of the Union Address”, live before a joint session of Congress at some time in January or February.

And why not? It’s a great opportunity for the president to get a lot of attention, something they have exploited increasingly as technology has advanced. In 1923, Coolidge’s was broadcast over radio for the first time. In 1947, Truman’s was the broadcast on television for the first time. In 1965, LBJ moved his from mid-afternoon to prime time to maximize his television audience. And in 2002, Dubya had his broadcast live over the internet.

Only on a handful of occasions did modern presidents interrupt the tradition. In 1944, FDR’s scheduled delivery was canceled due to his poor health, but the speech was transmitted in writing. And in 1986, Reagan’s was postponed after the Challenger space shuttle exploded.

The only modern president I could find who did not deliver an annual address was Jimmy Carter during in his inaugural year of 1977. I looked for quite a long time, but was not able to find any reason that he skipped the opportunity to lay out his vision for his administration. In addition, while he technically fulfilled his constitutional obligation by submitted an “Annual Report to the Congress for 1977” in writing, it wasn’t published until March of 1978 … more than month after he delivered his 1978 State of the Union speech before Congress on January 19, 1978.

In January, FAUXTUS said he would be talking about his “Build Back Better Plan” during his first address to a joint session of Congress “next month.” Multiple sites quote AP reporting that it was likely to be held on February 23. One included the AP link below, which no longer shows the report. Best guess … they scrubbed it to avoid embarrassing President Dementia. However, one included this screen shot:

On February 16, press secretary Jen Psaki was asked about it and said, “I’ve not Nancy Drewed that one out today, but it was never planned to be in February and we don’t have a date for a joint session at this point.”

Thomas Lifson wrote the obvious at American Thinker, that is that “The lickspittle media are rushing in with ‘fact checks’ to assure the nation that there is no requirement or deadline for a SOTU speech.” But hey … we all know the real reason, right?

https://twitter.com/BigFish3000/status/1364090571585970177

NOTE: In 2019, VOA News (link below) published an article that claimed, “Recent presidents — Reagan in 1981, George H.W. Bush in 1989, Clinton in 1993, George W. Bush in 2001, Barack Obama in 2009 and Trump in 2017 — have chosen not to deliver official State of the Union addresses during their first years in office. Those speeches would have come soon after their inaugural addresses. However, many, including Trump, have delivered major speeches in front of Congress that have had the feel of the State of the Union without the title.

I googled “SOTU YouTube” for each of those years and found videos of said “major speeches in front of Congress that have had the feel of the State of the Union without the title.” They are all labeled “State of the Union.

This is really interesting, particularly if you like alternative, natural treatments and medical history.

I was delighted to hear her recommend Vitamins C, D3, and K2, plus the mineral zinc as a daily supplement to boost the immune system and help prevent infection in the first place … because we’ve been doing that for several years.

BIPARTISANSHIP: In their on-going effort to bankrupt the nation, Democrats are plotting yet ANOTHER $1.9 Trillion Porkulus Spending Bill, which they deceptively call “COVID relief” … even though the majority of it is NOT for COVID relief.

Republicans offered 286 amendments. Democrats accepted 2 of them.

My best guess is the Dems wanted it so they could do what they’ve been doing to stigmatize and shut us up permanently. Second best guess … they were really disappointed that the incursion, vandalism, and violence wasn’t a whole lot worse. They just can’t count on us patriotic types to misbehave on command.

GREAT MOMENTS IN UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES: Volume 1 [3:03]

HERO: Henry Darby is the principal of North Charleston High School, where 90% of the students live below the poverty line. Disturbed by their pressing, real life needs, he got a second job at Wal*Mart, where he works three night shifts a week to earn money to help out where he can.

He doesn’t think it’s anything special, but when his supervisor found out what his day job is, she didn’t agree. At all. She got Wal*Mart to donate $50,000 to the school. Then, someone started a GoFundMe campaign that, as of this writing, has raised $27,425 toward its $30,000 goal.

LIZ CHENEY: When she voted to impeach Trump, Rep. Liz Cheney [R-WY] planted herself firmly in the NeverTrump camp with the rest of the elitist RINOs. The fact that she was censured by her own state’s GOP and recent polls showing Trump’s popularity hasn’t waned have apparently had no impact.

At a recent Reagan Institute event, she said, “It’s very important, especially for us as Republicans, to make clear that we aren’t the party of white supremacy.

No, we don’t. A new NBC News poll showed that support for the GOP by Hispanic blue-collar voters went from 23% (2010) to 36% (2020). Likewise, support for the GOP by Black blue-collar voters went from 5% to 12% over the same time period.

Columnist David Marcus replied, “Cheney’s claims are utterly baseless, and quite frankly, if she really believes the GOP is a racist party, the moral thing to do is to quit the party immediately.

I think it would be more to the point for the Party of “We fought the Civil War to keep slavery legal”, of the KKK, of Jim Crow laws, and of the genocidal Planned Parenthood’s preference for siting abortion clinics in minority neighborhoods to try and explain to us why they aren’t the party of racism.

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS: On Tuesday, I recounted a story Mama Buzz heard on the radio. She just sent me a link to the written story. “I’m on the side of the road crying…I have to tell you why.”

ROE V WADE: The long-awaited film, Roe v. Wade, will premiere at CPAC today in Orlando, Florida with producer Nick Loeb and Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight. It tells the backstory behind the infamous U.S. Supreme Court abortion ruling. It will be available on DVD starting in April. Amazon has it for pre-order, saying it will ship in early May.

SOUTH DAKOTA: Gov. Kristi Noem has signed a Born Alive act into law. In the great state of South Dakota, babies who survive abortion must be given the same medical and comfort care a premature baby of the same age would get.

WASHINGTON POST: On February 19, one of WaPo’s regular columnists fumed that a TV character chose life instead of aborting her unborn baby. Kate Cohen wrote, “Dammit! I was hoping that the young, professional woman, upon learning she was pregnant right after her jerky boyfriend left her, might decide to have an abortion. Instead, it turns out, she doesn’t even consider it.”

I’m so tired of this,” she continued. “The ability to put a stop to an unwanted pregnancy is part of a kit of tools women have that allow us to determine the course of our own lives. It’s freedom care.”

XAVIER BACERRA: CLICK https://twitter.com/thejcoop/status/1364672291909611521 [:28] to hear FAUXTUS’ nominee to be the HHS Secretary lie. Although technically as California’s Attorney General, Becerra filed his initial lawsuit against the federal government rather than suing the Little Sisters of the Poor directly, it’s a distinction without a difference. If the nuns had lost, they would have been forced to fund abortions.

2A: The U.S. Concealed Carry Association wrote a letter to FAUXTUS telling him that his gun control proposal would potentially make about 105 million law-abiding gun owners into criminals.

While we can agree that there are several ‘common sense’ and long overdue changes needed to our nation’s gun laws, we firmly believe that the path forward should be focused on supporting and protecting responsible, law-abiding Americans—not criminalizing and punishing them.

Democrats say “common sense gun control” like it’s some kind of holy mantra. And we let them take an inch. Then another inch. IMO, they’re way past “common sense” at this point,

BAIL: The four worst states in the union keep finding new and ever more absurd ways to become even worse. New Jersey, New York, and California have all limited the use of cash bail and Illinois has just eliminated it altogether. Police round up criminals and the courts set them free. Victims be damned.

CHICOMS: The Chinese Constitution supposedly guarantees Chinese citizens the freedom to believe and worship as they choose. In reality, the Chinese Communists do nothing of the sort.

The Chinese regime bans Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members from holding to anything but atheistic materialism, while declaring faith in anything else as incompatible with Communism “as fire and water.”

Monitoring and harassment of religious believers is routine. Their homes are broken into without warning, their books are seized and destroyed, and those caught printing, distributing, or reading religious materials end up suffering jail terms, harsh labor, and other forms of abuse.

A few days ago, Beijing issued a top policy directive declaring that promoting Communism and purging religious belief is one of its top priorities.

COMMUNISM vs SOCIALISM: I heard somewhere that the “far left” and “far right” thing originated from the British government, where the pro-Communists were seated on the far left of the chamber, while the pro-Fascists were seated on the far right. The story goes that the moderates sat in the middle … so the two extremes wouldn’t bust out in fist fights all the time.

I have no idea if it’s true, but it makes more sense than to claim that Fascist regimes such as the “National Socialist German Worker’s Party” – i.e., NAZIs – were “far right” in the sense we understand it.

Communists and Fascists alike hate God, Catholics, Christians, Jews, the disabled, homosexuals, traditional values, strong families, free elections, and civilians owning guns. And they both favor top down government control with a big emphasis on military might and expansionism.

FRONTLINE: [50:48] – In a recent interview with Michelle Malkin, Dr. Simone Gold, founder of American Frontline Doctors (AFLD) discussed the lack of authentic informed consent with regards to experimental vaccines, censorship as a “crime against humanity,” and how she was subjected to a raid on her home by a massive FBI SWAT team to arrest her for having been present in the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6th.

HERO: Seven-year-old Michael Martinez heard the family’s carbon monoxide detector beeping, but did not hear his parents or sister getting up. Michael, who has cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheel chair, crawled to his parents’ bedroom and woke them up before it was too late. His mom says, “He’s our little hero. He saved our family.”

IRAN: Trump wisely recognized that the ideology driving Iran’s policies are an existential threat to the U.S. and Israel, so he jumped off Obama’s “believe the nice jihadists will honor their nuclear deal” wagon and imposed comprehensive economic sanctions.

Iran has correctly sniffed out the weakness in the current U.S. administration and is preparing to demand we actually compensate them for the $1 trillion they say the sanctions cost them.

KVON: [:31] – I won’t say “never forgive,” because Jesus commanded us to forgive. But I surely will never forget.

LIES SCOTUS TOLD ME: Roger L. Simon’s commentary on the recent SCOTUS disappointments is worth reading in full. Simon is founder and CEO of PJ Media.

MARYLAND: Montgomery County is set to reopen its schools. They have taken out all the cafeteria tables and replaced them with desks, put up caution tape around non-essential areas, and placed tape on the floor to ensure students maintain the appropriate social distance.

Students will rotate between classroom learning and virtual learning each week, and the school system plans to give self-administered COVID tests to every in-person student and teacher once a week, and require individual health assessments weekly.

None of it is good enough for the teachers union, which held a rally to protest going back to their jobs.

At the rally, featured speaker Jeremy Levine revealed how little some teachers think of the profession to which they dedicated their lives.

Enough is enough. You will not sacrifice our lives, disrupt our communities, and endanger our students for what? Test scores? Or a few folks to get their free babysitters back?

Tweeters commented:

Science denier rally!
Is this what they wanted vaccine priority for?
Who are the children here?
There lack of concern for the children suffering academically and emotionally is so disturbing.
Just tell them to keep driving on down to the unemployment line.

ME TOO: On Wednesday, a former aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo published a shocking piece on Medium accusing her former boss of making inappropriate sexual comments and advances. She says that kind of behavior was par for the course for his administration.

In one incident, Lindsey Boylan says the governor asked her if she wanted to play strip poker. In another, he kissed her on the lips.

Cuomo’s office flatly denies any of her allegations are true.

MEXICO: Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, popularly known as Amlo, has unveiled plans to cut back on “green” energy, buy a whole lot of coal, and reactivate two coal-fired plants on the Texas border.

RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS: A home surveillance video camera caught this scene in Houston, TX. The car thief was thankfully not dumb enough to keep the baby who was in the back seat.

Roughly 20 minutes after the baby was abandoned, Amazon delivery driver Juan Carlos Flores pulled up in his van and saw the baby. He said, “I wanted to cry. How could someone have a heart to leave the child on the side of the road?

Baby and mother were reunited within minutes. The carjacker was still at large at the time the report was posted.

ABORTION: [4:22] FAUXTUS’ nominee for Secretary of Health, Xavier Becerra, believes that partial-birth abortion and assisted suicide should be legal.

More than 60 pro-life leaders have urged the Senate to vote no on this nominee. Sen. Joe Manchin, an allegedly moderate Democrat who represents the pro-life state of West Virginia, had not yet decided how he will vote, suggesting the pressure on him to comply must be intense.

ANTHONY FAUCI: “15 days to slow the spread.” “Just a few more months.” “Wait until there is a vaccine.” Enough is never enough for lockdown enthusiasts.

CLICK https://www.facebook.com/aklavan/videos/799866083962626 [2:10] to hear how this Big Fat Fraud is celebrating the first anniversary of “two weeks to flatten the curve.

COVID-19 is less dangerous than seasonal flu. Have you EVER heard anyone say you can’t safely engage in society because not enough people got a flu shot?

BORDER: Under Obama/Biden, the Border Patrol build cages to keep migrant children safe while their immigration status and family connections were verified. Under Trump, the border was controlled, so the whole issue was a lot less of an issue.

Now we’ve got FAUXTUS once again allowing too many illegals across the border, so they once again need facilities to house migrant children. Thankfully, FAUXTUS’ Press Secretary Jen Psaki has assured us that shipping containers are not cages. “This is not kids being kept in cages. This is a facility that was opened.

The never-unbiased Washington Post explained, “Many children arrive at the border as unaccompanied minors, leading to difficult decisions about what to do with them. Many are seeking to be united with family members already in the United States. But some aren’t, and they can’t be released without an adult sponsor taking custody.”

Uh, yeah. We pointed that out when Trump was in office, but you just shrieked about “kids in cages” (while publishing photos taken in 2014).

BRAIN FREEZE: Biden marked 500,000 American COVID-19 deaths at a White House ceremony where he said, “The only way to spare more pain and more loss, the only way— these millstones no longer mark our national mourning— these milestones, I should say, no longer, no longer moke— mark our national mourning …”

CAPITOL BREACH: The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and the Senate Rules and Administration Committee held a joint hearing into the riot on January 6.

Witness testimony directly contradicted what Democrats told the Senate impeachment trial earlier this month. i.e., that the attack on the Capitol had been expected as a result of President Trump’s alleged “incitement.”

Steven A. Sund, who was Chief of the Capitol Police at the time, testified that “none of the intelligence we received predicted what actually occurred.” He said the Capitol Police prepared for a protest that could become violent, but never prepared for an attack on the Capitol itself. “Although it appears that there were numerous participants from multiple states planning this attack, the entire intelligence community (IC) seems to have missed it.

Robert J. Contee III, Acting Chief of the D.C. Metro Police, testified that “available intelligence pointed to a large presence of some of the same groups that had contributed to violence in the city after demonstrations in November and December. The District did not have intelligence pointing to a coordinated assault on the Capitol.

Paul D. Irving, who was Sergeant-at-Arms for the House of Representatives at the time, testified that neither the FBI nor the Department of Homeland Security “assessed or forecast a coordinated assault on the Capitol like the one that took place.”

DEB HAALAND: FAUXTUS’ nominee for Secretary of the Interior has been confirmed by the Senate. Haaland, an enrolled member of the Laguna Pueblo tribe, will be the first Native American to hold a Cabinet position. She is radically opposed to fossil fuels. At her hearing, she introduced herself, noting that Capitol Hill sits on the ancestral homelands of the Nacotchtank, Anacostan, and Piscataway people.

HUMAN SMUGGLERS: This woman’s paid coyote dumped her in Texas during the Arctic blast. She suffered in the cold for 6 days and was rescued by Border Patrol agents. The 43-year-old Mexican national is being treated for hypothermia and severe frostbite. Doctors say she wouldn’t have lived much longer if she hadn’t been rescued.

ILHAN OMAR: The Democratic congresswoman from Minnesota has a long history of making antisemitic statements and expressing virulent hostility toward the nation of Israel. She was recently promoted to the position of Vice Chair on the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, and Global Human Rights.

“Global Human Rights”? Really? The Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV), the largest rabbinic public policy organization in America, was not happy. Noting that Omar was voted “2019’s Anti-Semite of the Year” by StopAntiSemitism.org, the rabbis called the appointment, “both risible and dangerous.”

Rabbi Steven Pruzansky, Israel Regional Vice President of the CJV said, “I have little doubt that she will abuse the framework of ‘human rights’ to further her campaign to demonize the Jewish State, as the UN Human Rights Council does on an annual basis.”

MEDIA MALPRACTICE: CLICK https://rumble.com/ve2m69-dan-ball-w-adam-guillette-feb.19th.html [6:07] to hear OANN talk with President of ‘Accuracy In Media’, Adam Guillette, about how CNN and NBC paid $35,000 each to John Earle Sullivan for video footage he shot while committing crimes during the January 6th Capitol breach.

Sullivan, 26, entered the Capitol Building through a broken window and wearing a ballistic vest and gas mask. Once inside, he pushed past U.S. Capitol Police and encouraged others to riot saying, We got to get this s— burned” and “it’s our house m————.” He was arrested and charged last month with violent entry, civil disorder, and disorderly conduct. He claims to be a member of Antifa and also faces charges in Utah for crimes committed during a BLM riot.

SCOTUS: On Monday, the Supreme Court not only refused to hear any election fraud cases, but also threw out Trump’s request to prevent Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance (Democrat) from subpoenaing his tax returns. They didn’t even have the courtesy to explain their decision to let a Democrat DA go on a fishing expedition through Trump’s financials.

Equality Act No

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has outlined why the Equality Act will be so damaging:

• exempts itself from the bipartisan Religious Freedom Restoration Act, in an explicit and unprecedented departure from one of America’s founding principles, thereby infringing on religious freedom and making it more difficult for individuals to live out their faith.

• forces religiously operated spaces and establishments, such as church halls, to either host functions that violate their beliefs or close their doors to their communities.

• requires women to compete against men and boys in sports, and to share locker rooms and shower facilities with men and boys.

• forces faith-based charities that serve all people to violate their religious beliefs, and threatens the welfare of thousands of beneficiaries of charitable services such as shelters and foster care agencies, by forcing a multitude of them to be shut down.

• jeopardizes existing prohibitions on the use of federal taxpayer funds for abortion, likely pressuring or even mandating the performance of abortions by health care providers in violation of their consciences, and ultimately ending more human lives.

• hinders quality health care, by forcing health care professionals, against their best medical judgment, to support treatments and procedures associated with “gender transition.”

ANNIVERSARY: Thanks to all y’all too! A blog isn’t worth much without readers. 🙂

CATHOLIC: Because of low Mass attendance, this New York priest stood outside a grocery store. Afterwards, Mass attendance increased “exponentially.”

MARK STEYN: CLICK https://www.facebook.com/TuckerCarlsonTonight/videos/184948736301952 [3:57] to watch an epic, satirical rant about a sad, lonely man who gets paid to bitch about conservatives on the internet.

MERRICK GARLAND: FAUXTUS’ nominee for Attorney General was once Obama’s nominee for SCOTUS. During his nomination hearing, he was asked if he believes that illegally crossing our borders should remain a crime. He hemmed and hawed and said he didn’t know, because he’d never thought about it.

Then, he was asked if he would prosecute people who enter the country illegally and replied, “This is again, ah, uh, a question of allocation of resources. We will uh, the department, will um ah um, I don’t know.”

When asked if he considers Antifa and Black Lives Matter attacks on the courthouse in Portland to be “domestic terrorism,” Garland said his personal definition of domestic terrorism is the use of violence or threats of violence to interrupt the democratic process, therefore, attacks on buildings at night probably don’t count.

Comment: “Of course, the goal of the attacks is likely to stop the function of the people working in the buildings during the day — but that doesn’t seem to have crossed the potential Attorney General’s mind.”

Comment: “Seems like he’s less concerned with our ‘democratic institutions’ and more concerned about ‘Democratic Party institutions.’”

Comment: “What a LOSS we had when this articulate, insightful, far-seeing speaker was not sent to the Supreme Court!

NATIONAL DEBT: Only $825 billion goes to actual COVID-related items. $1 trillion is for pork and pet projects.

I’ve given up hope that the national debt won’t destroy us. If Trump had had 4 more years, maybe he could’ve brought it under control. Now I’m just waiting for China to foreclose.

PRAVDA: Democrats on the House subcommittee on Communications and Technology (part of the Committee on Energy and Commerce) are waging war on the first amendment. They plan to hold a hearing on disinformation and extremism in media,but their targets are limited to Fox News, Newsmax, and OANN. Their “crimes against truth” include airing information about COVID-19, the 2020 election, and the storming of the Capitol on Jan. 6 that doesn’t toe the Democratic Party line.

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS: Posted by Teresa Headley: “I witnessed this sanitation employee return a trash can to the side door of an elderly ladys home this morning. After speaking with her I learned that her mobility is limited and this man does this for her every week. It may seem so insignificant to you or me, but to her it’s greatly appreciated! Small acts of kindness, such as this, will not the world, but it changes her world. I didn’t get you name sir, but you are awesome!

SCOTUS: The Supreme Court today decided against hearing election fraud cases. Justice Clarence Thomas slammed the decision saying, “One wonders what this Court waits for. We failed to settle this dispute before the election, and thus provide clear rules. Now we again fail to provide clear rules for future elections. … By doing nothing, we invite further confusion and erosion of voter confidence. Our fellow citizens deserve better and expect more from us.”

TRUMPERS: A recent USA Today poll found that 73% of Trump voters believe Joe Biden was not legitimately elected.

GRAMMY NOTES: Mama Buzz called to tell me a story she had heard on the radio. I haven’t found it on the ‘net, but it’s too cool not to share.

Some good folks who wanted to help Texans decided to donate as much clean, bottled water as they could afford to purchase and transport. It filled a tractor trailer.

As they were traveling to deliver it, three tires blew out. They called the agency they were headed for and said they didn’t think they would make it. They were told that area had enough water, but the town where they broke down really needed it! Even better, when they delivered it, they were told, “Our church prayed for water this morning.”

Who knew angels would blow out tires to get the job done! LOL
