Newly released documents from Wikileaks have exposed the efforts of hard-left billionaire George Soros to make Pope Francis quiet down on social issues like abortion and man-woman marriage and make income equality and global warming the centerpiece of his visit last year to the U.S. The documents show how these wealthy groups worked closely with the Pope’s closest advisers including two U.S. Bishops and one Latin American Cardinal.

An adult female sea lion was found dead on Venice Beach on August 3. She had been shot three times.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office of Law Enforcement is investigating the shooting, as killing a marine mammal is a violation of the Marine Mammal Protection Act, which can result in a $100,000 fine and a year in prison. MORE
Exile: Archbishop Thục issued a declaration that the Holy See in Rome was vacant, Wikipedia
Thục moved to Toulon, France, where he was assigned a confessional in the cathedral until about 1981.

One author claims Thục served at the Mass of Paul VI as an acolyte several times. Continue reading →
OSLO — Hardangervidda, a mountain plateau in southern Norway that is popular among tourists and hikers, is known for its natural beauty. As the seasons change, thousands of reindeer migrate across the plateau, moving between drier lands in the east, where they graze on lichens, and wetter lands in the west, where they breed. MORE
Fannie Mae, the nation’s biggest underwriter of home mortgages, has been under increasing pressure from the Clinton Administration to expand mortgage loans among low and moderate income people and felt pressure from stock holders to maintain its phenomenal growth in profits.
”Fannie Mae has expanded home ownership for millions of families in the 1990’s by reducing down payment requirements,” said Franklin D. Raines, Fannie Mae’s chairman and chief executive officer. ”Yet there remain too many borrowers whose credit is just a notch below what our underwriting has required who have been relegated to paying significantly higher mortgage rates in the so-called subprime market.

From a friend priest in regard to the chant in the video.
I saw that YouTube clip. Although it is the Exsultet chant of the Easter Vigil, the whole thing is taken out of context. The chant is very ancient–more than 100 years, maybe back to St. Augustune–and refers to Jesus Christ as the Light Bearer who knows no sunset after His Resurrection. There is no blog to offer comment after the clip concludes. I repeat: the Catholic Church has been using this chant over 1000 years, and it refers to Jesus Christ–not Satan.

Kaepernick’s reasoning: to protest what he feels is racial injustice in America.
Linebacker NaVorro Bowman didn’t say that Kaepernick or his stance was the “cancer,” but in-house divisiveness was and would be if players don’t work their way through Kaepernick’s new-found, pre-game ritual. MORE
NDIANAPOLIS (AP) — No serious injuries were reported after multiple tornadoes touched down Wednesday in central Indiana, tearing the roofs off apartment buildings, sending air conditioners falling onto parked cars and cutting power to thousands of people. MORE
Ever since Satan deceived Eve to eat of the forbidden fruit under the pretext of becoming as gods (Gensis 3:5, “You shall be as gods knowing good and evil.”) Man has been struggling to find himself until Jesus Christ came into this world to give him back his spiritual rebirth. In going back to God’s original plan (Genesis 1:26, “Let us make man in Our image and likeness.”) What Eve didn’t realize was that she and Adam were already created as gods, but of the imperfect state.

In late April, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe announced, to great fanfare, that he was restoring voting rights to 200,000 felons who’d been stripped of the franchise when they went to prison. The move won McAuliffe, a Democrat, praise from social-justice advocates, but it inspired an immediate backlash from Republicans in the commonwealth, who vowed to block the move. MORE
