“His whole life is a fantasy”

This interview is well worth your time.

  • “It’s like he’s on the wrong side of everything.”  – Sean Hannity
  • “It is unimaginable how much damage he has done.”  – Newt Gingrich

I have found the same thing Hannity says he found.  I.e., NO area of the world where Obama improved foreign relations and NO economic indicator that showed anything positive for the middle class or the poor.

Hannity : Newt Gingrich on President Obama’s radical left wing beliefs : 1/16/2017

The good news is that the fact Obama ruled by fiat means Trump is going to be able to undo 75% of Obama’s mess within the next few weeks.

Nothing Left

“I’m struck by how braindead the left is. They have come to the point where they have no ideas, no solutions, and nothing positive to offer, so they instead rely on the same few slogans to attack opponents, whether there is basis for these attacks or not.”  – Newt Gingrich

It’s Official… It’s Rex Tillerson

I don’t know much about him, but what I’ve seen so far leads to mixed emotions. As the CEO of the largest corporation in the world, Exxon Mobil, he’s dealt with all the oil-producing countries and has a relationship with Russian strongman Vlad Putin. His confirmation is sure to be a pier 6 brawl, although Trump will get what he wants in the end.

Rex Tillerson, Exxon C.E.O., Chosen as Secretary of State
A statement from Mr. Trump’s transition office early Tuesday brought to an end his public and chaotic deliberations over the nation’s top diplomat — a process that at times veered from rewarding Rudolph W. Giuliani, one of his most loyal supporters, to musing about whether Mitt Romney, one of his most vicious critics, might be forgiven.
Instead, Mr. Trump has decided to risk what looks to be a bruising confirmation fight in the Senate.

Exxon’s Rex Tillerson: 5 Things to Know About Trump’s Likely Secretary of State
Here are five thing about the 64-year-old man who is likely to be America’s top diplomat.
1. Tillerson has close ties with Vladimir Putin.
2. Tillerson spoke against sanctions on Russia.
Speaking about sanctions imposed over Russia’s annexation of Crimea, Tillerson said he generally opposes sanctions as imprecise and ineffective, and added he had discussed his view with U.S. officials, according to The Associated Press.
3. Tillerson supported global emissions-cutting agreement forged in 2015 Paris climate summit.
Tiller acknowledged the threat of climate change and the company he heads endorsed a carbon tax and stated its support for the Paris climate agreement.
4. Tillerson supported the Boy Scouts admitting gay youths.
After the Boy Scouts of America voted to allow openly gay youths to join their troops and earn their merit badges, Eagle Scout Tillerson said at the organization’s national meeting in 2014: “So we’ve made the decision we’re going to change. Now what? No winners or losers. After we make the decision to change, it’s the mission,” according to The Dallas Morning News.
5. TIllerson has contributed to several Republican campaigns.
According to the Federal Election Commission records, Tillerson has given $442,284 as direct contributions since 2003, $72,200 as “joint fundraising contributions” and $5000 to a Super PAC. While he has contributed to George W. Bush, Mitt Romney, Mitch McConnell and Jeb Bush, he is not known to have given any money to Trump’s campaign.

McConnell, Warning of ‘Dangerous’ Debt, Wants Tax Cut Offsets
Senate leader also opposes $1 trillion infrastructure stimulus
Deficit hawks have warned Trump’s proposals would add to debt
THIS IS AS EXPECTED AS IT IS APPALLING. JUST WHERE THE HELL WERE THESE “DEFICIT HAWKS” WHILE OBAMA WAS RUNNING UP 9 TRILLION IN DEBT??
THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT THE MACK DADDIES, McCONNELL AND McCAIN AND THEIR LITTLE STOOGE PAUL RYAN RESENT A BILLIONAIRE OUTSIDER CRASHING THEIR LITTLE CLIQUE IN D.C. THEY’RE GOING TO FIGHT HIM EVERY INCH OF THE WAY, PUBLIC GOOD BE DAMNED.
President-elect Donald Trump’s race to enact the biggest tax cuts since the 1980s went under a caution flag Monday as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell warned he considers current levels of U.S. debt “dangerous” and said he wants any tax overhaul to avoid adding to the deficit.

Senior Republicans Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan say they will back the intelligence agencies after Trump slammed the CIA’s claim that Russia’s hacking helped him win the election
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan both had supportive words for the intelligence agencies
Comes after the CIA concluded that Russia wanted Trump to win the election
McConnell said he had the ‘highest confidence’ in the CIA’s findings
Ryan threw his support behind a further probe and said intelligent agencies were ‘working diligently’ to protect the country from foreign cyberattacks

Obama to Trump: Executive Action Is Good for Me, Bad for Thee

“I have not changed Washington the way I wanted to change it,” Obama said in an interview last week with VICE. “And what I worry about in our politics is people getting impatient with the slowness of democracy, and the less effective Congress works, the more likely people are to start giving up on the core values and basic institutions that have helped us to weather a lot of storms.”

Trump packs trade team with veterans of steel wars with China
President-elect Donald Trump is stacking his trade transition team with veterans of the U.S. steel industry’s battles with China, signaling a potentially more aggressive approach to U.S. complaints of unfair Chinese subsidies for its exports and barriers to imports.
Led by Wilbur Ross, a billionaire steel investor and Trump’s nominee for commerce secretary, Dan DiMicco, the former CEO of steelmaker Nucor Corp, and three veteran steel trade lawyers, the team is expected to help shift the U.S. trade focus more heavily toward enforcement actions aimed at bringing down a chronic U.S. trade deficit, Washington trade experts said.

Inauguration blues: Why pop stars won’t play for Trump
Reports from the US suggest Donald Trump is struggling to find A-list stars to perform at his inauguration. We asked the stars of the BBC Music Awards what it would take to get them to play.
When President Barack Obama was inaugurated in 2009, he was serenaded by Beyonce and Aretha Franklin.
During his stay in the White House, he’s had audiences with the likes of Rihanna, James Taylor and Kendrick Lamar.
Donald Trump might not be so lucky.
KEEP IN MIND, MOST OF THESE PEOPLE NEVER FINISHED HIGH SCHOOL, HAVE MARGINAL TALENT, AND HAVE MINIONS HANGING ON TO INFLATE THEIR EGOS. I DOUBT THE DONALD MUCH CARES ABOUT WHAT THESE JADED ASSCLOWNS THINK.

Judge says electors must vote for statewide winner
BUMMER, DUDE! JUDGE SAYS YOU HAVE TO OBEY THE LAW!
U.S. District Judge Wiley Daniel denied a request by two Colorado electors who contended that the law binding their vote to Colorado vote winner Hillary Clinton violated their First Amendment rights and the intents of the Constitution’s framers. The electors had sought the right to vote for someone other than Clinton in order to unite behind a consensus Republican other than Trump when the Electoral College convenes on Dec. 19.

Obama on Comedy Central: America ‘by No Means’ Has Overcome ‘Legacies of Slavery, Jim Crow, Colonialism, Racism’
I HAD A RATHER HEATED ARGUMENT WITH MY FRIEND WILLIE TODAY ABOUT AFFIRMATIVE ACTION. HE SWEARS THERE IS NO SUCH THING AND EVERYTHING OBAMA GOT HE ACCOMPLISHED STRICTLY ON HIS OWN MERITS. IT’S A FOOL’S ERRAND TRYING TO REASON WITH SOME PEOPLE.
‘We have, by no means overcome the legacies of slavery and Jim Crow and colonialism and racism’
“You know, my general theory is that, if I was clear in my own mind about who I was, comfortable in my own skin, and had clarity about the way in which race continues to be this powerful factor in so many elements of our lives,” Obama said. “But that it is not the only factor in so many aspects of our lives, that we have, by no means overcome the legacies of slavery and Jim Crow and colonialism and racism, but that the progress we’ve made has been real and extraordinary, if I’m communicating my genuine belief that those who are not subject to racism can sometimes have blind spots or lack of appreciation of what it feels to be on the receiving end of that, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not open to learning and caring about equality and justice and that I can win them over because there is goodness in the majority of people.”

Begin Production

Back in the day, when I was a working stiff, one of the accounts I serviced had an R&D department. On one of the engineers’ desks was a sign that read: “There comes a time in the history of every project when it becomes necessary to shoot the engineers and begin production.”

There is at least a score of links I have bookmarked, so the time has come to begin production. There is no particular rhyme or reason for anything you find here, but you should be used to that by now.

Are there any adults left in the Democratic Party?
Since Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton, Democrats’ behavior has been sad to watch.
It’s fairly easy to laugh at this childishness, even from the famously petty president of the United States. But the left’s road trip to Crazytown took a darker turn when accusations that Russia hacked the election results to make Trump president were made by formerly “respectable” voices and given oxygen by the media and Democrats.

VA manager bans Christmas tree from office cubicle
va
TRUMP NEEDS TO GET RID OF THIS NEST OF VIPERS AT THE TOP OF THE VA AND APPOINT SOMEBODY WHO CARES ABOUT OUR VETERANS.
THE VERY FIRST THING HE SHOULD DO IS ISSUE AN EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT VETS CAN GO TO ANY HOSPITAL THEY CHOOSE FOR TREATMENT. ONE CASE OF A VET COMMITTING SUICIDE BECAUSE HE CAN’T GET MEDICAL HELP IS TOO MANY. AND I’VE SEEN MORE THAN ONE.
“There is a Christmas tree, ornaments, and decorations in the cubicle across from Luis Stevenson’s desk (the same cubicle where the scanner is housed),” wrote VA supervisor Rebecca Cellucci. “If this belongs to you, please claim it. Otherwise, it will be discarded on Friday.”
“Either management has a policy against any mention of Christmas or religion, or they are absolutely tone deaf, to talk about executing a Christmas tree a couple of weeks before Christmas,” the employee said.

Gingrich: Trump has no obligation to hold news conferences
TRUMP HAS THE AUTHORITY TO PULL THE CREDENTIALS OF VERMIN LIKE CNN, MSNBC, NYT, WaPO, AND ALL THE OTHER WHORES WHO WILL ATTACK HIM AT EVERY TURN. REPLACE THEM WITH NEW MEDIA, LIKE BREITBART.

“And if the White House Correspondents’ Association doesn’t like it, I’d say, ‘Fine, disband.'”

It’s no secret that Rosie O’Donnell hates Donald Trump, but she insists that she wasn’t trolling the president-elect when she shared a YouTube video speculating that his 10-year-old son has autism. She has since gone public with her own daughter’s recent diagnosis with the developmental disorder and said that she reposted the clip because she found it “educational and informational.”

Coons continued saying that blocking President-Elect Trump’s appointments now came down to the will of the American people, arguing that the general public will find his nominees too extreme and sound the alarm with their senators.

WOW! MSNBC Host Calls Out Elizabeth Warren AS “SHRILL,” “UNHINGED”
ELIZABETH WARREN: Republicans are taking over Congress, they are taking over the White House, but Republicans do not have majority support in this country. The majority of voters supported Democratic Senate candidates over Republican ones, and the majority supported a Democratic presidential candidate over a Republican one. The American people didn’t give Democrats majority support so we can come back to Washington and play dead. They didn’t send us here to whimper, whine, or grovel.

Black Congressmen Refuse To Condemn Ellison’s Past Proposal For A ‘Black State’
Under the name Keith E. Hakim, Ellison wrote: “Finally, blacks would have the option of choosing their own land base or remaining in the United States. Since black people toiled most diligently in the southeastern section of the United States, this land, quite naturally, would be most suitable. That means Arkansas, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi. Blacks, of course, would not be compelled to move to the black state, and, of course, peaceful whites would not be compelled to move away.”

California regulates cow farts
CALIFORNIA DEMOCRATS ARE PERSECUTING HOLSTEINS FOR NORMAL BODILY FUNCTIONS
Despite strong opposition from farmers, Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation in September that for the first time regulates heat-trapping gases from livestock operations and landfills.
Dairy farmers say the new regulations will drive up costs when they’re already struggling with five years of drought, low milk prices and rising labor costs. They’re also concerned about a newly signed law that will boost overtime pay for farmworkers.
But the biggest target is dairy manure, which accounts for about a quarter of the state’s methane emissions.
State regulators want more farmers to reduce emissions with methane digesters, which capture methane from manure in large storage tanks and convert the gas into electricity.
New Hope Dairy, which has 1,500 cows in Sacramento County, installed a $4 million methane digester in 2013, thanks to state grants and a partnership with California Biogas LLC, which operates the system to generate renewable power for the Sacramento Municipal Utility District.

Twenty-Two More Days…

…until it’s all over. What a great time it was. The greatest country in the history of the world, predicated on the notion that people have a God-given right to self-determination, freedom to live and worship as you choose, will soon be completely given over to a brand of socialism that has failed everywhere it’s been implemented. This is a nation that twice has stopped enemies with visions of worldwide tyranny, a nation no country dare invade militarily has been brought down from within by people whose avarice and greed for wealth and power have caused an economic and moral decay that will ultimately finish off everything good we once had. And there’s nothing we can do to stop it.

Firebombing ‘an attack on democracy’
IT’S CALLED TERRORISM IN THE NAME OF IDEOLOGY… AND IS PERMITTED IF YOU’RE A DEMOCRAT.
Gov. Pat McCrory Sunday called the weekend firebombing of a North Carolina Republican headquarters “an attack on our democracy,” while one GOP official called it an act of “political terrorism.”
In a tweet, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump blamed “Animals representing Hillary Clinton and Dems in North Carolina.”


UNHINGED CNN CRANK Blames Trump After Hillary Supporters Firebomb GOP Headquarters
On Sunday the Orange County Republican headquarters in North Carolina was firebombed and vandalized.
Thugs wrote “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else” in spray paint on the side of the building.
“But that kind of action is unacceptable,” Stelter stated before setting his sights on Trump. “And we need to have the temperature come down on all sides right now,” he opined, “Unfortunately, Donald Trump is the lead in terms of raising the temperature at this moment in time.”

The Elites Have NO IDEA How Angry People Really Are
Over the last eight years, elite political insiders ruined the American healthcare system, did nothing to fix our broken economy and allowed our military to be decimated.
It is Alt Left, and its media lapdog sites, that is heavily into censorship of ideas that diverge from their approved ideology. It is Alt Left that champions regime change and ratcheting up the rhetoric against Russia. It is Alt Left that believes it has an inherent right, even an obligation, to lie and obfuscate if it serves their greater purpose.

Perhaps most significant is that it is Alt Left who so quickly resorts to violence and vandalism when confronted with people and ideas with which it takes exception. Never has that been as clear as in this election cycle.

Kaine: No Apology Necessary For Campaign Emails Mocking Catholics
In the email, Halpin writes that 21st Century Fox Chairman Rupert Murdoch and NewsCorp Chairman Robert Thomson, who are both Catholic, are attracted to the faith because of “systemic thought and severely backward gender relations.”
Palmieri responded: “I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable, politically conservative religion — their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelical.”

Hillary Clinton’s Crisis Response: Ask Friendly Media To Laugh At Email Revelations
THIS IS THE MOST BIASED, ONE-SIDED NEWS CYCLE IN HISTORY

I don’t think the jokes are working – a little too close to the bone without a punchline that really works at taking the seriousness out of it. Wonder if we could have think of a few funny “private” emails to reporters that she could read…. Obviously they would have to be both self-deprecating but could poke a little fun at them…

An August 2015 script for Clinton suggested she should accept a little blame for the home-built email network, and then try to soften the expect public reaction with a few jokes:

Biden: Trump words are ‘sexual assault,’ Bill Clinton’s past ‘shouldn’t matter’
Vice President Joe Biden says Donald Trump’s 2005 comments about groping women is “sexual assault” and an “abuse of power” and argues that allegations of sexual misconduct by former President Bill Clinton, the wife of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, “shouldn’t matter” in the 2016 White House race.

“What (Trump) said is textbook definition of sexual assault,” Biden said in an interview aired Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “This is not a guy that should be representing the United States.”

Glenn Beck: Michelle Obama gave ‘most effective political speech’ since Reagan

On his TV program Friday, Beck said his viewers should watch Obama’s speech to see its “devastating effects. And I don’t mean on Donald Trump. I mean on the conservative movement.”

Transgender Advocates ‘Aim to Destroy’ Common Sense, Says Analysis
To pretend, therefore, that we do not know what we immediately and urgently perceive is to do violence at once to human nature, language, the possibility of a shared life, and the intellect’s capacity to apprehend reality. If I cannot say, “There is a man walking down the street,” then it is hard to see how I can make any reliable judgment about anything at all that bears on human existence. If I cannot say, “Joey is going to grow up to be a fine man someday,” then what in life is left to talk about?

ADIEU, KEVIN McCARTHY

NOT THIS ONE:
kev4

THIS ONE
kevin-mccarthy

This seems both tragic and comical at the same time. McCarthy, who was being touted as the next tool of the democrat party, suddenly withdrew from the race for Speaker. The reaction to the news from different quarters was predictable, while his reasons are still unclear. He claimed “we need a strong leader.” It was also assumed it was the quote he gave a reporter about the Benghazi hearing pulling down Hillary’s poll numbers, which her flying monkey brigade instantly made into a campaign commercial.

There is a juicier rumor which I, in sympatico with Dianny, believe is the real reason. That is that in the gilded Sodom that is Washington D.C. it was discovered he was carrying on with NC representative and the Abortion Barbie of the Right, Renee Elmers. It just seems to be the kind of dirt the obama organization always profits from.C

Here’s Dianny’s piece:

My thoughts on McCarthy dropping out

But I don’t think it was Kevin’s blundering remarks about the Benghazi committee that fueled this decision.

I believe a story in Breitbart today may have a lot more to do with McCarthy’s decision not to keep his name in the running.

The Breitbart story is about North Carolina Congressman Walter Jones writing a letter urging candidates to drop out if they had even a whiff of a scandal that could destroy them or embarrass the Republican Party.

I saw that article and immediately thought of something I read on Twitter last week.

In case you missed it, Charles C Johnson from gotnews.com — admittedly not the most unimpeachable source — reported in late September that Kevin McCarthy has been carrying on an affair with North Carolina Congresswoman Renee Ellmers (which has resulted in Johnson receiving a cease and desist order this week from Ellmers’ attorney).
http://patriotretort.com/my-thoughts-on-mccarthy-dropping-out/

IN CASE YOU MISSED ANYTHING, HERE ARE SOME OF THE GORY DETAILS
McCarthy withdraws from speaker race, vote postponed
McCarthy’s decision, announced moments before Republicans were set to nominate their candidate, will postpone the vote for speaker. McCarthy had been running against Reps. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, and Daniel Webster, R-Fla., before he dropped out, and it’s unclear whether other candidates will now step forward.

‘ORANGE CRUSHED’ IS PULLING SOME SKULLDUGGERY TO TRY TO HAND-PICK HIS SUCCESSOR

While Boehner originally was set to resign at the end of the month, the speaker said in a statement Thursday afternoon he “will serve as Speaker until the House votes to elect a new Speaker.” He added, “I’m confident we will elect a new Speaker in the coming weeks.”

Louie Gohmert: Boehner Postponed Speaker Vote ‘Like Any Good Dictator Would’
LOUIE GOHMERT HAS NEVER BEEN ONE TO SUFFER IN SILENCE

“It actually pointed to the reason we need a new speaker, and that is because it’s like he feels he has to pick a successor, like any good dictator would,” the Texas Republican said in comments to TheBlaze Thursday night after House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy abruptly took himself out of the running as GOP members gathered for the secret-ballot vote. “But this is not supposed to be a dictatorship. This was an awesome time, a great opportunity for the conference to come together after Kevin’s announcement and have a family discussion.”

Republican: ‘Very real’ chance GOP will need Dems to elect Speaker
APPARENTLY NASTY PELOSER DIDN’T GET HER PACK OF LIBERAL JACKALS TO COOPERATE TO KEEP THE SPEAKERSHIP IN THE HANDS OF ONE OF HER PUPPETS

Republicans may be forced to solicit Democratic help to break their Speaker stalemate, Rep. Charlie Dent (R) said Thursday.

The Pennsylvania centrist, who often serves as a mouthpiece for outgoing Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), said there is only a small handful of Republicans who can win 218 GOP votes to fill Boehner’s shoes. The trouble is, none of them wants the job.

“We may need a bipartisan coalition to elect our next Speaker,” Dent told reporters after Thursday’s closed-door GOP meeting. “That’s a very real possibility right now, and I think anybody who’s honest about this knows it. They may not want to talk about it, but they know it.”

Report: Boehner phones Paul Ryan, asks him to run for Speaker — or else he might stay on as Speaker himself
REMEMBER HE WAS OUR VP NOMINEE LAST ELECTION

This makes three top House Republicans who’ve endorsed Ryan in the last two days as a potential uniting force. Yesterday it was Trey Gowdy:

“To me, just speaking as one member, the smartest kid in the class is Paul Ryan,” Gowdy said. “If I had one draft choice and I was starting a new country, I would draft Paul to run it. Not because I agree with him on everything, but because he’s super, super smart. And when someone is super, super smart and is not interested, that tells you something. It tells me a lot”

Trump takes credit for McCarthy dropping out
HEEEERES DONALD!

Donald Trump is taking credit for House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) dropping out of the race for Speaker.

“They’re giving me a lot of credit for that, because I said you really need somebody very, very tough and very smart — you know smart goes with tough, not just tough,” the Republican presidential front-runner said at an event in Las Vegas. “I know tough people. They’re not smart, that’s the worst, OK? That’s the worst. You’ve gotta be smart.

“But we need smart, we need tough, we need the whole package — you know, like me,” he added.

Dem. Leader: McCarthy Exit a ‘Sign That Republicans Are Unfit To Lead’
STENY HOYER SPEAKS OUT IN THE SPIRIT OF TRUE DEMOCRAT BI-PARTISANSHIP

As a result of their divisions and their efforts to disrupt Congress’s work, we’ve experienced a government shutdown, a near-default on our debt, and too many missed opportunities to grow our economy and support job creation,” Hoyer said in a statement.

He blamed the splits on GOP conservatives, not the establishment side of the GOP.

“With Speaker [John] Boehner resigning last month and Leader [Eric] Cantor losing his primary election last year, this is just the latest chapter in the history of an extreme wing of the Republican party controlling their conference,” Hoyer said.

Live Updates From Inside the Chaos: House Speaker’s Race Heating Up as Donor Class Tries To Draft Paul Ryan

MONEY TALKS…BULLSHIT WALKS

Friday Stein tweeted that Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL)
18%
“says Paul Ryan would be a good Speaker and work w/ Dems. Then says he probably just hurt Ryan’s chances by saying that.”
Gutierrez and Ryan have worked together in the past, notably on comprehensive immigration reform.

In that pursuit, in 2013 Gutierrez said he saw Ryan as his “ally” in fighting for amnesty for illegal immigrants.

Gingrich open to return to Speakership
ARE YOU FREAKING SERIOUS????

“If you were to say to me 218 have called you up and given you their pledge, obviously no citizen could ever turn down that kind of challenge,” Gingrich said, as first reported by the Washington Free Beacon.
He compared the scenario to George Washington coming out of retirement to become America’s first president.
“This is why George Washington came out of retirement — because there are moments you can’t avoid,” Gingrich said.

Newt Gingrich: Personal Reflections on Pope Benedict XVI

Let me say up front that I have a very personal feeling about Pope Benedict XVI’s retirement.

The Holy Father’s visit to Washington, D.C. in 2008 changed my life.

It was seeing him at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception which changed my curiosity into my becoming Catholic.

Let me explain.

For years, I would attend church with Callista (who was born and raised Catholic and is a longtime member of the Choir of the Basilica). As a non-Catholic I supported her deep commitment to the Church.

Further, Callista and I made a movie about Pope John Paul II and his pilgrimage to Poland in 1979. Nine Days that Changed the World is a remarkable film about this historic visit, which created a revolution of conscience that transformed Poland and fundamentally reshaped the spiritual and political landscape of the 20th Century. In producing this movie, I became even more intrigued with the amazing life of Pope John Paul II.

I gradually became more and more interested in the Catholic Church as an institution and in the Eucharist as the centerpiece of Catholic worship.

Of course, as a historian, I had studied the Church over the centuries including its strengths and weaknesses.

Having grown up Lutheran, serving as a Protestant acolyte in military chapels while my dad was in the Army, and becoming a Baptist in graduate school, I was pretty steeped in the history of the Reformation and the Protestant approach to God.

It was the weekly experience of the Catholic Church which had a steadily growing impact on me. The sense of community and reaffirmation of Christ’s sacrifice and love every Sunday — strengthened by my study of the extraordinary leadership and evangelism of Pope John Paul II drew me closer to the Church.

And yet the intellectual curiosity had not converted into an emotional bond — until Pope Benedict XVI came to Washington, D.C. in 2008.

During this visit, the Bishops gathered at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception for Vespers with the Holy Father

The Choir of the Basilica was invited to sing for Vespers. As a spouse of a choir member, I was invited to come to the Basilica. Spouses were allowed to sit in the large Upper Church while the Choir, the hierarchy, and the Pope were in an intimate Crypt Church below (which was good for the Choir because the Crypt Church is both beautiful and has extraordinary acoustics). Here, we watched the Vesper Service on large screen televisions.

To our surprise, the Holy Father, came through the sanctuary and visited with guests in the Upper Church. There was clearly joy in his eyes – it was absolutely stunning. His theme for the visit was “Christ our Hope” which I certainly thought captured the heart of Christianity in three words. His interaction with people was joyous as he communicated God’s love.

I was really surprised by the intense personal happiness Pope Benedict XVI conveyed. I had previously seen him as an intellectual German theologian (one of the greatest theologians of the 20th century) but not as an emotional evangelist like Pope John Paul II.

Yet here the Holy Father was visibly enjoying, indeed thrilled, by his chance to bring Christ’s message of salvation to the United States.

That night at dinner I told Monsignor Walter Rossi, the Rector of the Basilica and our good friend, that I wanted to become Catholic.

So you can see why I was deeply moved by the announcement that for the first time since 1415, a Pope would resign (and that occasion involved a political solution to having multiple Popes during the Avignon period) and for the first time since 1294 (and to the best of our knowledge only the second time in history) a Pope would resign because of age and energy.

In his last meeting with the Cardinals, Pope Benedict XVI noted “One of you is the future Pope, whom I today promise my unconditional reverence and obedience.”

This is a unique historic moment for the Catholic Church.

It is also a deeply personal moment for me.

Last night the Choir of the Basilica, led by Dr. Peter Latona, offered “Truth and Beauty: A Musical Tribute to Pope Benedict XVI.” Their wonderful music was interspersed with quotes from the Holy Father. (It was broadcast by EWTN).

Allow me to close with one example of his deep faith: “Love is the light — and in the end, the only light — that can always illuminate a world grown dim and give us the courage needed to keep living and working. Love is possible, and we are able to practice it because we are created in the image of God. To experience love and in this way to cause the light of God to enter into the world — this is the invitation I would like to extend.”

Pope Benedict may have retired, but his words will live on forever.

Your Friend,

Newt
