BORDER: Drug cartels are taking full advantage of the Dems’ border crisis. While Border Patrol is fully occupied with the swarms of illegals, the cartels smuggle untold amounts of addictive substances into our country. Their latest plan is to target young Americans with candy-colored and highly lethal Fentanyl pills.

DOJ: Mark Houck is the latest victim in a string of Department of Justice-sponsored SWAT raids and arrests of the Dem’s political enemies. Houck faces felony charges for allegedly violating the FACE Act. If you want to donate to his legal fund, go to https://www.givesendgo.com/prolifefamily.

ELITISM: BHO took a break from haranguing us about climate change to fly to Los Angeles and drive a gas-guzzling SUV to have dinner with his daughters. While they were in the swanky restaurant (where sushi rolls can cost as much as $20 each), the Secret Service agents kept his SUV parked in the handicapped spot out front for two hours.

FBI: Special Agent Kyle Seraphin says he was so disturbed by AG Garland’s order to the FBI to target parents at school board meetings that he went to his congresswoman’s office in New Mexico, and made a “protected disclosure.”

Seraphin, who has since been suspended, told former fibbie, Dan Bongino, that most of his colleagues didn’t appreciate the political nature of these cases, and just did “cursory investigations” before shutting them down. Nonetheless, he said, there are many parents out there who have no idea the Bureau has case files on them.

Seraphin also said there are about 40 whistleblowers who have now spoken to Republican members of Congress and a lot of guys have left the FBI because they refused to be a part of this abusive system. But many others have decided to just hang on for a few more years so they can retire and get the Bureau’s generous pension.

He said the first thing FBI agents do when they sit down together is “bitch about the management, complain about the structure, and complain about how it’s not how it used to be.”

FLORIDA: The Western Journal reports that, between October 2018 and July 2022, more than a million new voters registered in the Sunshine State. Roughly half of them registered as Republican. A measly 17,197 registered as Democrat.

ISRAEL: A leaked analysis of Israeli post-vaxxx data shows that the jab definitely causes a wide range of adverse effects. The Israeli Ministry of Health and our CDC quote Pfizer that all side effects are mild and of limited duration; the Israeli data shows these claims to be false. The Israeli Ministry of Health has no comment and the reporter who blew the whistle on this lost her job.

Meanwhile, back in February 2022, the director of the ‘rona ward in Ichilov Hospital (Tel Aviv) said that about three-quarters of the serious cases had received at least three jabs, while the others were unjabbed. “The vaccine has no significance regarding severe illness.” But it causes side effects, so hmmm let me think why they’re still telling people to get it …

LIZ CHENEY: The soon-to-be former Congresswoman has promised to quit the GOP if Trump is nominated for the 2024 prez ticket. The Wyoming GOP has already booted her out of their corner of the party and I’m thinking a whole lot of us are wishing she’d just ‘fess up and admit she sold her soul to the Dems.

VAXXX: Michel Goldman, 67, a top European immunologist and vaccine expert, believed in the ‘rona vaxxx. After getting his first two ‘rona jabs on his left side, his CT scan showed his lymphoma was asymmetrically distributed, with more on the left side. After getting a booster jab in his right arm, he had another CT scan done; it not only showed the cancer had exploded, but that it was now more prevalent on his right side. He hypothesizes that the booster shot may overcharge helper T Cells so that, rather than fighting cancer, they stimulate its growth.

Our Lady of Good Success

Mother Mariana of Jesus Torres y Berriochoa (1563-1635) was born to devout Catholic parents of the Spanish nobility. At a young age, she left Spain to help establish a convent of the Immaculate Conception of the Mother of God in Quito, Ecuador, which was officially founded on January 13, 1577.

In 1582, the Blessed Virgin asked if she would sacrifice herself for the people of the twentieth century. She said yes and, until her death in 1635, she suffered greatly. It is said she also levitated, bilocated to save a soul, multiplied bread, cured the sick, reconciled families, predicted the future, and worked conversions.

The Blessed Mother asked Mother Mariana to arrange to have a statue made showing how she appeared as Our Lady of Good Success. Mother Mariana said she needed measurements, so Our Lady had the nun remove the cord around her waist and use it to measure her height. According to this measurement, the Blessed Virgin is 5’9” tall. This event is pictured in the painting above. The photo below shows the statue, which is still at the convent in Quito.

Mother Mariana also received some of the most important visions in the history of the Catholic Church; these visions were approved in 1611 by the local bishop, when the statue of Our Lady of Good Success was formally blessed. On the February 22, 1991, the statue received a Papal Coronation. Below are some of the warnings she received about our times.

Note: Freemasonry would not be founded until more than a century after this vision.

January 21, 1610: “From the end of the 19th century and from shortly after the middle of the 20th century, … Satan will reign almost completely by means of the Masonic Sects. They will focus principally on the children. … [Among the assaults on the Church will be the degradation of all the Sacraments. Matrimony, for example.] Freemasonry … [will make] it easy for everyone to live in sin and [procreate] illegitimate children. … The vices of impurity, blasphemy, and sacrilege will dominate.”

February 2, 1634: “At the end of the 19th century and for a large part of the 20th, various heresies will flourish … almost total moral corruption … spirit of impurity. … Secret sects [will] penetrate with great skill into the heart of families and destroy even the children. … Corrupted priests [will] scandalize the church. … Innocence will almost no longer be found in children nor modesty. … Those whom it behooves to speak will fall silent.”

The Pope’s “infallibility will be declared a dogma of Faith by the same Pope chosen to proclaim the dogma of the mystery of my Immaculate Conception. He will be persecuted and imprisoned in the Vatican through the usurpation of the Pontifical States and through the malice, envy, and avarice of an earthly monarch.” Each of these prophecies was fulfilled in the papacy of Blessed Pope Pius IX (1846-1878), pictured in the photo above.

Unhappy times will come wherein those who should fearlessly defend the rights of the Church will instead, blinded despite the light, give their hand to the Church’s enemies and do their bidding. But when [evil] seems triumphant and when authority abuses its power, committing all manner of injustice and oppressing the weak, their ruin shall be near. They will fall and crash to the ground.

In 1906, Mother Mariana’s body was exhumed and found to be incorrupt. In 1986, the Archdiocese of Quito opened her cause for canonization.

ARIZONA: A judge has lifted an injunction that was placed on the state’s abortion statute back in 1973. Under the restored statute, abortion is legal only to save the woman’s life.

BBB: CLICK https://rumble.com/v1l9s3x-biden-republicans-are-taking-credit-for-bldhyindclapding.html [:14] to hear FAUXTUS blame Republicans for “bldhyindclapding.

FAUXTUS: In what may be his biggest lie yet, CINO Joe claimed the Catholic Church no longer condemns all abortions.

IVERMECTIN: It’s not about science – Dr. Pierre Kory and a number of other physicians who support ivermectin use in treating COVID-19, especially in early treatment, have all had peer reviewed papers removed by journals without explanation. He says the journals are “beholden to Big Pharma” which opposes the use of this safe, inexpensive, and effective drug.

Kory says he has first hand knowledge of 88 controlled trials, including all of the health ministry programs around the world, that successfully used ivermectin in early COVID-19 treatment. “I know the drug works and I’ve been disseminating that knowledge. Unfortunately, the narrative is that it doesn’t work. … They base that on a couple of trials published in high impact journals, and then they try to dismiss the drug. All of the complaints are from physicians and pharmacists. Not one patient has ever submitted a complaint against the care that I’ve delivered, and that pertains to my entire career.

MANDATE: A New York Supreme Court judge has ruled that the vaxxx mandate does not apply to NYC cops and that every one of them who got fired must be “reinstated to the status they were as of the date of the wrongful action.” Sadly, the decision was based on a union thing, not on the vileness of the vaxxx, so cannot be cited for many of the other city workers who got forced or canned.

NYC: They give out free needles to drug addicts who use them and toss them on the streets. So now they’re thinking about paying them to return the used needles for proper disposal.

PROJECT VERITAS: In another win for real journalism, this woman is no longer working at the elite NYC school where she was working “undercover” to push her politics. The Epoch Times says, “It is unclear whether her departure was voluntary or if she was fired.

You can watch the video at the PV link below. One part goes:

Norris: Unfortunately, it’s the white boys who feel very entitled to express their opposite opinions and just push back. There’s a huge contingent of them that are just horrible. And you’re like, “Are you always going to be horrible, or are you just going to be horrible right now?” Don’t know.

Veritas Journalist: Is there any saving these Republican white guys?

Norris: I don’t know. I think they need to go. I think they’re really awful people. That’s kind of what I’m afraid of with my white students that are rich. I’m like — do you ever have to deal with this? They’re so protected by capitalism. It makes me sad. … We need to find some, like, Dexter, sort of like a vigilante, taking people out.

STUDENT LOANS: I think the real problem is that kids get suckered into thinking they will be able to afford it, that college degrees will be their tickets to high paying jobs right after graduation. When my brother was General Manager of a major hotel in Los Angeles, a wet-behind-the-ears graduate of Cornell University’s prestigious Hotel School applied for a job. Bro offered him a starter position on the front desk. The newbie was insulted at the idea. Bro asked, “What position were you thinking of?” He replied, “General Manager.” Bro said, “Sorry, I’m already filling that position.” Newbie sputtered, “But I’m a Cornell graduate!” Bro said, “So am I. And then I spent 20 years learning the hotel business and working my way up the ladder to this position.

VAXXX: Remember the latest ‘rona booster? That would be the one that was approved after they gave it to 8 mice, all of whom later caught the virus after the jab? It seems only 4.4 million Americans have gotten it, which works out to be only 1.3% of the U.S. population. Sounds good to me.

The CEO of Pfizer apparently thinks that we should all get the jab … DESPITE having now contracted the virus twice in five weeks. Dearest and I still haven’t had either the jab or the virus.

GRAMMY NOTES: When my niece and nephew were little, my brother lamented that they could both tell you what time it is, but neither one had any idea how to tell time. (All their clocks were digital.)

Selichot

Selicot* is a set of Jewish penitential poems and prayers used especially in the period leading up to the Days of Awe (Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur). The prayers are usually recited between midnight and dawn and the biggest night for them is at the head of the Sabbath (Saturday) before Rosh Hashanah.

[32:39] – On September 23, 2022, thousands of Jews gathered at the Western Wall in Jerusalem to pray the Selichot. Selichot is the Hebrew word for “forgiveness.” A central theme of the Selichot prayers is the Thirteen Attributes of God’s Mercy.

Thus, it is exceptionally striking that this year, the Jewish Selichot prayer service, which is all about being freed from the slavery of sin, inaugurated the Catholic Feast of Our Lady of Mercy (aka, Our Lady of Ransom).

Remember that Jesus’ Blessed Mother was a devout Jewess who certainly prayed Selichot in Jerusalem and that her apparition as Our Lady of Mercy/Ransom led to the creation of the Mercedarians, a religious order dedicated to freeing slaves, particularly those being held by Muslims. Ponder that as you watch the Jews from all over the world gather to pray by the Western Wall, because the Muslims who control the Temple Mount won’t let them pray up there.

*Selicot is pronounced either slee CHOAT or slee CHOAS, because the final Hebrew letter can be pronounced as either a tee or an ess sound. And remember that the Hebrew “ch” is not the English “ch as in church” sound, but the guttural, hawking up a loogie sound that is made at the back of the throat.

2020: Before leaving office. U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr said several times that there was “no evidence” of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election. [10:20] – He lied. We knew it then, but now we have proof.

Former Trump adviser Jeffrey Clark, the Director of Litigation at the Center for Renewing America, reports that FOIA requests to 12 US Attorney districts from the 2020 battleground states regarding a November 9, 2020, memo from Bill Barr saying there should be investigations of the elections.

Eleven of the twelve have responded, saying there were no investigations done as a result of that memo. The twelfth district, the eastern district of Pennsylvania, reports that they asked to investigate their district and Barr denied the request.

POLICE STATE: Mark Houck is a well-known pro-life author, sidewalk counselor, and father of seven children who are homeschooled by Mark’s wife, Ryan-Marie. Every Wednesday, Mark spends six to eight hours outside abortion clinics offering women other options.

On Friday morning, the DOJ sent a SWAT team of 25 to 30 FBI agents on to the Houck’s rural property, surrounded the house with rifles in firing position, then pounded on the door and yelled at them to open up. Pleas to stop scaring the children fell on deaf ears. “The kids were all just screaming. It was all just very scary and traumatic,” Ryan-Marie said.

When the agents said they were there to arrest Mark, Ryan-Marie asked for their warrant. They said they’d go get it. Mark asked her to get him some clothes and his rosaries, but by the time she returned with these items, they had loaded him into a vehicle.

The Feds are charging him with violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, due to an incident that has already been thrown out of the District Court in Philadelphia.

More Woo Woo End Times Stuff

If you haven’t read yet or don’t really remember all that I’ve taught you so far, please go to the bottom and read through the “Background Reading” blogs. This post will build on that material.

Ember Days are a Catholic thing that isn’t practiced much since Vatican II, but they’re still a thing. They are seasonal days of fasting, abstinence, and prayer. This week, the Autumn Ember Days coincided with three Catholic feast days.

WEDNESDAY: The Feast of St. Matthew (Apostle to the Hebrews and author of the Gospel of Matthew, which focused on the Jewishness of Jesus).

FRIDAY: The Feast of St. Padre Pio (probably the greatest saint-priest of our time, he bore all of the wounds of Christ for 50 years).

SATURDAY: The Feast of Our Lady of Mercy (originally known as Our Lady of Ransom which I just blogged about so you would understand the significance of it).

CLICK TO EMBIGGEN

These Ember Days are also occurring on the last days of the Jewish month of Elul, the period of reflection and repentance that precedes Rosh Hashanah (aka, Yom haDin), the Days of Awe, and Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement). Elul 29 is tomorrow; Rosh Hashanah will begin at sundown.

Keeping in mind the three feast days above, plus all of the stuff I’ve already taught you about the fulfillment of Jewish holy days, The Warning (aka, Illumination of Conscience), and the Jubilee, CHECK OUT the Mass readings for tomorrow!

Reading 1: “Disaster for those so comfortable in Zion and for those so confident on the hill of Samaria, the notables of this first of nations, those to whom the House of Israel has recourse! Lying on ivory beds and sprawling on their divans, they dine on lambs from the flock, and stall-fattened veal; they bawl to the sound of the lyre and, like David, they invent musical instruments; they drink wine by the bowlful, and lard themselves with the finest oils, but for the ruin of Joseph they care nothing. That is why they will now go into captivity, heading the column of captives. The sprawlers’ revelry is over.” – Amos 6:1, 4-7

Responsorial Psalm: “Gives justice to the oppressed, gives food to the hungry; Yahweh sets prisoners free. Yahweh gives sight to the blind, lifts up those who are bowed down. Yahweh protects the stranger, he sustains the orphan and the widow. Yahweh loves the upright, but he frustrates the wicked. Yahweh reigns for ever, your God, Zion, from age to age.”Psalms 146:7-10

Reading 2: “But, as someone dedicated to God, avoid all that. You must aim to be upright and religious, filled with faith and love, perseverance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith and win the eternal life to which you were called and for which you made your noble profession of faith before many witnesses. Now, before God, the source of all life, and before Jesus Christ, who witnessed to his noble profession of faith before Pontius Pilate, I charge you to do all that you have been told, with no faults or failures, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, who at the due time will be revealed by God, the blessed and only Ruler of all, the King of kings and the Lord of lords, who alone is immortal, whose home is in inaccessible light, whom no human being has seen or is able to see: to him be honor and everlasting power. Amen.” – First Timothy 6:11-16

Gospel: “There was a rich man who used to dress in purple and fine linen and feast magnificently every day. And at his gate there used to lie a poor man called Lazarus, covered with sores, who longed to fill himself with what fell from the rich man’s table. Even dogs came and licked his sores.

Now it happened that the poor man died and was carried away by the angels into Abraham’s embrace. The rich man also died and was buried.

In his torment in Hades he looked up and saw Abraham a long way off with Lazarus in his embrace. So he cried out, ‘Father Abraham, pity me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in agony in these flames.’

Abraham said, ‘My son, remember that during your life you had your fill of good things, just as Lazarus his fill of bad. Now he is being comforted here while you are in agony. But that is not all: between us and you a great gulf has been fixed, to prevent those who want to cross from our side to yours or from your side to ours.’

So he said, ‘Father, I beg you then to send Lazarus to my father’s house, since I have five brothers, to give them warning so that they do not come to this place of torment too.’

Abraham said, ‘They have Moses and the prophets, let them listen to them.’

The rich man replied, ‘Ah no, father Abraham, but if someone comes to them from the dead, they will repent.’

Then Abraham said to him, ‘If they will not listen either to Moses or to the prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone should rise from the dead.’” –Luke 16:19-31

Wow!

Our Lady of Ransom

Today is the Feast of Our Lady of Mercy.* Originally known as Our Lady of Ransom, the feast dates back to 1218, when the Blessed Virgin appeared to three different men on the same day, with the same request. The men were King James I of Aragon, St. Raymond of Pennafort (a relative of King James), and St. Peter Nolasco of Catalan. The request was for the three of them to establish an order especially committed to rescuing slaves from the Muslims.

During the 13th Century, the Muslims around the Mediterranean operated a massive slave trade. The Spanish, particularly, were subject to raids in which they would be captured and imprisoned, sold into slavery and often forced to renounce their Catholic faith or face severe discrimination, torture, and death. It is estimated that in a single year more white Europeans were taken captive than the number of all the slaves shipped to America during the entire time of the slave trade there.

The three men did as Our Lady requested. The order is officially known as the Royal, Celestial, and Military Order of Our Lady of Mercy and the Redemption of the Captives. Or, the Order of Our Lady of Ransom for short. It is believed they rescued many thousands of Christians from Muslim slavery.

The order is also known as the Mercedarians. It still exists in 17 countries. One of the distinguishing marks of the Order is that, since its foundation, its members are required to take a fourth vow in addition to the traditional vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience. That vow is “to visit and to free Christians who are in captivity and in power of the Saracens or of other enemies of our Law… By this work of mercy… all the brothers of this Order, as sons of true obedience, must always be gladly disposed to give up their lives, if it is necessary, as Jesus Christ gave up his for us.

Guardian Angels

[1:06:04] – A lecture by exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger about Angels. What are they? How do they be? What do they do? How can we grow in our relationship to our guardian angel? How did we get our guardian angel? What can guardian angels do & not do?

Some points I noted as I was listening (and grabbing screenshots of the gorgeous art work!):

Angels were created as purely spiritual beings. We humans were created as spiritual/physical hybrids. When we die and go to Heaven, we don’t become angels. We become disembodied spirits that will be reunited, each with our one and only, true, but perfected physical body at the end of time.

Human beings will get the places of the angels who fell.

Each angel is a unique species of being. Their mode of knowing is the opposite of ours.

I pray for my guardian angels (I have two) every day and, sometimes, they allow me to be aware of them (which is how I know I have two). But when I focus on them too much, they pull away, because their job is to help me grow closer to God. Later in the talk, Father says if you get a specially powerful angel (or two), it’s not because you’re special, but because you need it. Yeah, I kinda figured.

Each angel was created for a specific task. I thought that guardian angels cycled through different people. Like, they would stay with their charges through Purgatory, but once they went to Heaven or Hell, they’d be reassigned. Fr. Chad says no. Each guardian angel was created to be the guardian angel for a single, specific person.

Exorcists believe, based on their experiences, that Satan assigns us specific demons and, if your original angel refused his task of guarding you and fell, then it’s more than likely that he is the demon assigned to you.

If you want to increase in holiness, you need to know your defects. Your angel knows. Oy … “humiliate me interiorly every day for Lent.” The idea of that makes me shudder … which no doubt means I really need to do it! “Your angel has to deal with your arrogance, your pride, your obnoxiousness all the time.”

A guardian angel is assigned to each sacramental marriage.” Wow. Dearest and I have often talked about the three-legged stool of our marriage. There’s him, there’s me, and then there’s the marriage. Most times when we have to make a decision, we either agree, find a compromise, or one of us makes a good enough argument to switch the other’s vote. But sometimes, none of these has been possible and our marriage has been in real trouble. In those times, which thankfully have been very few, we’ve gone to a priest we trust and asked him to stand in and vote on behalf of our marriage. And we agree that whoever “wins” won’t gloat and whoever “loses” will gracefully submit. But it has never, ever occurred to me that our marriage might have its own angel! That. Is. So. Cool.

Do Not Name Your Angel. Naming each angel was the prerogative (exclusive right or privilege) of God alone. “To name your angel is a sin of usurpation.

God has assigned guardian angels to places. It occurs to me that we should be praying for the angels assigned to our parishes, regions, dioceses, and nation. His story about the angel who saved a priest from a car crash reminds me of a missionary I know. He had gone to the big office building to get his visa for his first mission trip. A total stranger stopped briefly and said to him, “You need to go to N. floor,” then kept on going. He told me he didn’t think it was strange at all that a total stranger knew where he was going. “I figured he was an angel, that he was busy with another task, but just wanted to give a new missionary a little help.

[31:41ff] – The section about what we can ask our angels to do for us is jaw dropping. I could really use help with blocking negative memories and bad dreams! I’ve rebuked any demons that bring these things up or give me bad dreams, but I never thought to ask my angels to help out. Duh me!! Hey, I’m sorry, guys!

There’s a lot more, if you’re interested. At one point, he mentions “submitting” to one’s guardian angel. Maybe there’s something to the “rule” part of the guardian angel prayer. I’ve been saying “teach”, because it felt wrong to suppose that an angel has authority over the free will God gave me. But if I choose to submit, that’s a whole other ball game. I need to ponder and pray on this.

I should probably point out that I am very clear about the difference between the worship that is owed only to God and the friendship that all believers can share with one another. As long as we keep our relationship with our guardian angels one of respect and honor, not worship, then we should be fine.

Heartbeat

CLICK https://twitter.com/RNCResearch/status/1572742298168958977 [:12] to hear Stacey Abrams claim, “There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks. It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.

WaPo fake checker, Glenn Kessler, tweeted the clip out saying, “FWIW, “fetal heartbeat” is a misnomer. The ultrasound picks up electrical activity generated by an embryo. The so-called “heartbeat” sound you hear is created by the ultrasound. Not until 10 weeks can the opening and closing of cardiac valves be detected by a Doppler machine. …” Radiologist Pradheep J. Shanker responded:

Shanker also said the NPR article Kessler cited was wrong. “Ultrasound only detects density and motion. It cannot detect any electrical activity at all. This is a scientific fact. It is true that the valves in the heart develop later. However, the cardiac muscles that are located in the embryological heart are contracting. They are in fact moving inward and outward. That is how you define a beat.

ABORTION: In Mexico, activists claimed 100,000 women had died from illegal abortions. In fact, that was the total number of people, male and female, who had died from all diseases. And in El Salvador, pro-aborts claimed that women were being jailed for “abortions”, when in fact, forensic evidence had established that the “full term babies [had been] strangled, stabbed, struck with a rock, had their necks broken, suffocated in septic tanks or inside plastic bags.”

It would be nice to say he’s just ignorant and maybe lazy for not having done better research, but the fact is that he appears to have deliberately misquoted a Catholic source to make it sound like it says the exact opposite of what it actually says!

LOCKDOWNS: The World Economic Forum (WEF) is boasting that mass compliance with draconian COVID-19 mandates helped pave the way for upcoming “climate”-related restrictions. … Hmmm … yeah, no. I’m thinking they’re going to have a much harder time getting us to comply ever again, cuz “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

MANDATES: A U.S. District Judge has struck down the mask and vaxxx mandates the FAUXTUS administration attempted to impose on everybody in Head Start. The ruling said the agency had no right to make medical decisions for the program’s students, employees, and volunteers.

MIDTERMS: The Cook Political Report, which appears to have a decent “nonpartisan” rating from both sides, estimates there are 31 seats in the House of Representatives that could go either way. Republicans need only six to take the majority.

MILITARY: Apparently, pandering to those suffering from psychological disorders is now absolutely critical for the academy’s mission of “developing warfighters” to be “prepared to lead the USAF/USSF with character.” Cadets at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado are being told to use “parent” or “caregiver” instead of “mom” or “dad”, “partner” instead of “boyfriend” or “girlfriend”, and “y’all” instead of “you guys.” The academy also offers a “Cadet Wing Diversity and Inclusion Program,” where graduates are given a purple rope to wear across their left shoulder “symbolizing their position as a diversity representative” so that they can “advise students on diversity.”

MONTANA: A court has issued an injunction on the state’s September 9 law stating that sex is immutable and can not be changed on a person’s birth certificate, even if the individual had undergone surgery. The state has agreed to temporarily abide by the court’s decision.

NEW YORK: New York Attorney General Letitia James on Wednesday filed a $250 million lawsuit against former President Donald Trump, his kids Eric, Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr., and the Trump Organization — alleging “staggering” fraud in the family real estate business.

P.S., I wasn’t familiar with the movie Misery. After reading the description, I’m glad of that. Brrr.

OFFER IT UP: “How often have you heard that phrase? … The grace of being able to unite our sufferings to Jesus Christ and lift them up to the Father is one of the most tremendous gifts of our Catholic Faith. It’s a powerful way to participate in the sanctification of the world.

It should never cease to amaze us that God, in His sheer goodness, allows us in our own small way to cooperate in the ongoing work of redemption—and that in His economy, nothing is wasted. … Even your most painful wounds, shameful humiliations, and difficult seasons can be joined to the Cross of Jesus Christ and become part of His victory over sin—your own, and that of the world.” – Dan Burke

TRANS: Parents are frightened into allowing physical mutilation of their minors with the dire threat that the kids will off themselves if they can’t get what the lefties call “gender affirming care.

CLICK https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/status/1572018011942555648 [:48] to hear Tucker claim that kids who receive sex reassignment are 19 times more likely than the general population to succeed at killing themselves.

I did a little googling and found a study by the American Academy of Pediatrics that appears to be the source for the “scare the parents” data. In it, teens self-reported twice as many suicide attempts among those with gender issues than those without gender issues. However, an enormous study of mental health outcomes for sex reassignment patients showed zero evidence that such “gender affirming care” improves mental health in any way.

I also found the study Tucker cited, which found that the rate of successful suicides in teens who had endured sex reassignment was 19.1 times greater than among teens in general. That study also showed that the long-term history of these patients included 2.8 times more psychiatric hospitalization than normal peers. They were also 2 to 2.5 times more likely to die from tumors or heart disease.

I think it’s pretty clear that the people doing the “scare the parents” thing are more concerned with the long-term well-being of their income than they are with helping kids who are uncomfortable in their own bodies.

CLICK https://www.theepochtimes.com/how-trans-movement-misrepresents-science-to-harm-children-dr-miriam-grossman_4746502.html [30:11] to hear an interview with psychiatrist Dr. Miriam Grossman about gender transition practices being pushed on kids using bad science. She notes that, without any intervention, 60% to 90% of these minors end up being fine with their bodies in adulthood.

GRAMMY NOTES: I am so grateful to my mother who told me, “NEVER TOUCH THAT STUFF!” When Harry Potter came out, I read it with my girls and we watched all the movies. AND we talked about the IMPORTANT DIFFERENCE between enjoying pretend magic (and pretend science in the SciFi stories we also enjoy) and OBEYING GOD’S LAW about not consulting spirits, etc.
