YOU Can Terminate The Patriot Act and Its Ugly Siblings.
John V. Walsh
This Sunday, at midnight, the notorious Section 215 of the Patriot Act is set to expire. Section 215 has been the basis for the bulk collection of communications of all Americans, indeed of all the world. It was born under Bush in the wake of 9/11, and Obama kept it alive in beginning in 2010 – until now. But on Sunday a stake can be driven through its heart – if WE act NOW. This is not simply a possibility but a likelihood! MORE
Hear, Father Noel Barbara’s dynamic lecture, given originally in French by Fr. Barbara in the 1980’s. The author (who was probably the first European priest to come to the conclusion of the vacancy in the papal chair), after recalling the Catholic doctrine on the Church and its Magisterium, shows why the popes of Vatican II cannot be popes.
The burden of responsibility of the decrees of Vatican II lies with Pope Paul VI. Father Noel Barbara writes in “Fortes in Fide” page 41, “Canon Law(Can,22) makes it clear that the conclusions of an Ecumenical Council are not binding until they receive the approval of and are promulgated by a Pope. Pope Paul VI has specifically stated that the documents of Vatican II are the “supreme form of the Ordinary Magisterium”, and that Catholics are bound to accept the teachings of the Ordinary Magisterium as defide catholica. The decrees were signed by Paul VI on their completion.

The worst drought in recorded history just got worse.
California’s main source of surface water during the state’s dry summer months is the remaining snow on its highest mountains. But it has officially melted. The snowpack levels, which hovered at around 7% to 15% of normal for this date in 2009, before the four-year drought began, are currently at 0%. MORE
The extra lessons in today’s Mass allow for the conferring of one of the four minor orders or one of the three major orders after each lesson.
Bearing in mind, that since today is the last day of the general, testimonial judgment and also the last day of the Pentecostal season, Trinity Sunday, falling on the 31st, would also be Our Lady’s Queen-ship day.
Point is the Gospel for Trinity Sunday states. Continue reading →
A Syrian Christian fighter has beheaded an Islamic State group (IS) militant to avenge people “executed” by the jihadists in northeastern Syria, a monitor said on Friday.

Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke, former head of the highest court at the Vatican, said that the Irish people’s vote to legalize homosexual marriage was in “defiance of God” and an action more depraved than that practiced by “pagans.”
“I mean, this is a defiance of God, it’s just incredible,” said Cardinal Burke, speaking at the Newman Society at Oxford University’s Catholic Society on May 27. MORE
There seems to be a connection of Saudi’s with Isis
In my Post colleague Charles Krauthammer’s May 21 op-ed column, “You want hypotheticals? Here’s one,” former Saudi Arabian intelligence chief Prince Turki al-Faisal was quoted approvingly as complaining: “We were America’s best friend in the Arab world for 50 years.” Note the past tense.
If my arithmetic is correct, that would date the beginning of Turki’s cherished Saudi-U.S. relationship to 1965. But “best friend”?
As Oscar Wilde is credited with saying, “True friends stab you in the front.” MORE
Authorities in northeastern Mexico’s Tamaulipas state recently dismantled an internet-operated video surveillance network used by a criminal group to monitor both government security forces and civilian life. The CCTV network comprised 39 cameras, according to El Universal, and is an unprecedented feat of counter-surveillance in an ongoing technological arms race between Mexican and American authorities and cartels.

The expenses include overtime pay for police and fire brigades, destruction of public property, and related costs incurred by outside jurisdictions – such as Pennsylvania and Washington DC – that responded to an official call for help MORE
Here’s the book for a world pretending everything is gray – even truth. Saint Irenaeus gave us the first Against the Heresies (Adversus Haereses) in the second century. In the 20th, it is as of a second Irenaeus that we present these conferences by Archbishop Lefebvre under the same title. They both address the same problem: Man playing God. Continue reading →
No capital punishment no corporal punishment no hell punishment
Nebraska on Wednesday became the first conservative state in more than 40 years to abolish the death penalty, with lawmakers defying their Republican governor, Pete Ricketts, a staunch supporter of capital punishment who had lobbied vigorously against banning it. MORE
