My parents came from Sicily and settled near the Boston area of Lynn Massachusetts. My name Saraceno is a common name. The Saraceno name comes from the Saracens which were Muslim, Arabs who conquered Sicily many centuries ago along with the Greeks and Spanish.
I was the fourth of six children born in America and by then English was being spoken more so than Sicilian. Continue reading
Over the past week, a hurricane seems to have hit the shores of Hillaryland. After suffering a landslide defeat in New Hampshire, the Clinton campaign is trying to figure out how to stop the growing storm that is Bernie Sanders. MORE
Compilation of SJWs impaling themselves on words.
The point is not to replace the ‘patriarchy’ victimhood with a ‘feminist’ or ‘oligarchy’ victimhood. When you understand the big oil, big pharma, big agriculture, biotech, banking cartels created feminism to bleed us for more money, have less babies, & be a miserable human farm of unit movers for their benefit you can do something about it.
Your money, sex life, family, & food are controlled by these cartels. VIDEO
Saints Joaquin (sometimes spelled “Joachim,” pronounced “wal-keem”) and Anne, are the parents of the Virgin Mary. There are no mentions of them in the Bible or Gospels, what we know comes from Catholic legend and the Gospel of James, which is an unsanctioned, apocryphal writing form the second century AD. We do know from scholarship that the Gospel of James was not written by James, the Brother of Jesus, despite its claim to be so authored. MORE AUDIO Bp. Sanborn
TEL AVIV, Israel — The water that flows into Sorek desalination plant is drawn from near the Mediterranean Sea floor. Pumped inland, the water is cleansed, step by step, of salts and impurities. The transmutation does not take long. Forty minutes after entering the facility, the stuff of sailboats and sunbathers is now drinkable.
Sorek is the newest of five Israeli coastal desalination plants. A national mission in the last decade to develop the fleet, plus many more years of investment in wastewater recycling facilities, have turned Israel into as much a water producer as a water consumer. Nearly half of the country’s water supply is now manufactured, either by desalting the Mediterranean or purifying urban sewage. MORE

Polls show Trump’s ahead, How do we counter them trying to steal the election from Trump? All this talk of progressive values means nothing from Sanders, he was cheated out of the nomination and he’s come out in favor of Hillary. With an endorsement like that, Wall street will love him and his fans should be doubly angry.
A senior store detective at Macy’s has been fired from his job after he intervened when a female customer reported that a man entered the women’s bathroom. After he was asked to leave the restroom, the man complained saying he believes he is really a female. The woman and her daughter were frightened by the man’s presence.
The case is now before the New York State Division of Human Rights, reports the ChurchMilitant.com.
Javier Chavez says he was never told about any policy that would allow men to use women’s facilities. He also told store managers that any policy that would allow men in a woman’s restroom violates his Catholic faith but he would abide with store mandates. MORE

In Madrid, the capital of Spain, the Society of St. Pius X spent the last few years building a new church. The building has now been completed, and the solemn dedication ceremony is scheduled for this coming Monday, July 25, which coincides with the parish’s titular feast, for the church is dedicated to St. James the Greater, Apostle.
Normally, none of this would be news, for the SSPX builds new parish churches around the globe all the time. The case of St. James the Apostle Church in Madrid, however, is different, because the exterior of the now-completed building is so hideous that it might as well be a Novus Ordo church. One may also easily mistake it for an office building, a library, or worse.
Here are a few sample pictures of this monstrosity (click each photo to enlarge). Make no mistake about it, this church is no longer under construction — it’s done! MORE
Following is the full text of Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin’s address to the European Parliament in Brussels on Wednesday June 22
A mere four hours, that is the flight time from Tel-Aviv to Brussels. I could say that four hours, and light years, separate Brussels and Tel-Aviv, but in truth there is not much difference between them, be it in awareness or in essence: two cosmopolitan cities, practically neighbors, not far from each other, both recently struck by a wave of terrorism.
