FBI Director Christopher Wray SHOULD BE FIRED

Florida Governor Rick Scott is reported to be calling for Christopher Wray's resignation after it was learned that the FBI had received specific reports about the Florida High School Shooter's identity, intent, etc.  The FBI admits it did not EVEN follow its own standard operating procedures. Better things to do, eh?


This is the same FBI which spent the last year  pouring over FAKE FACEBOOK ADS and thousands of hours texting and being preoccupied with a presidential election, yet it did not have time nor inclination to follow up a very specific threat  to American children?  Better things to do, eh?

as of yet few people seem to get it

words like 'not on my watch', 'a captain goes down with his ship' come to mind.

If the President doesn't see this, I will be scandalized!

Mexican American Students from Corpus Christi lead Texas March for Life

Another upbeat, optimistic blog post!  The students interviewed below represent 100  Saint John Paul II High School students who marched for life this past weekend.  As mentioned in the title, the school is overwhelming Mexican American while Corpus Christi's other Catholic high school is mostly 'anglo' and more affluent. It does not support the March for Life.

This school was founded by our Bishop Emeritus Edmund Carmody (back in 2007 I think)
 I am very proud that SJPII has such a dedicated tradition of pro-life activities and solid teachers, like Mr. Nye-who is also present in the interview below. (full-disclosure: three of our children were students of Mr. Nye)

Listen to four of this year's marchers being interviewed yesterday on our local radio station.....

Pope Francis' 2014 Pronouncement on IN VITRO FERTILIZATION

 I missed this three years ago.  

When the Holy Father spoke out clearly against IVF.......

This is in continuity with  the Pope's before him.  

..............from By Francis X. Rocca Catholic News Service
11.17.2014 12:00 AM ET
VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Pope Francis denounced a "false compassion" that would justify abortion, euthanasia, artificial reproduction technologies and medical research violating human dignity. And he urged medical doctors to "go against the current" and assert "conscientious objection" to such practices, which he called sins "against God the creator."
The pope made his remarks Nov. 15 in a meeting with members of the Association of Italian Catholic Medical Doctors.

"The dominant thinking sometimes suggests a false compassion, that which believes it is helpful to women to promote abortion; an act of dignity to provide euthanasia; a scientific breakthrough to produce a child and consider it to be a right, rather than a gift to welcome; or to use human lives as guinea pigs, presumably to save others," Pope Francis said.

"We are living in a time of experimentation with life. But a bad experiment. Making children rather than accepting them as a gift, as I said. Playing with life. Be careful, because this is a sin against the Creator: against God the creator, who created things this way," the pope said.

Catholic moral teaching forbids abortion, euthanasia, the use artificial reproduction technologies such as in-vitro fertilization and research that involves the destruction of human embryos.
"Fidelity to the Gospel of life and respect for life as a gift from God sometimes require choices that are courageous and go against the current, which in particular circumstances, may become points of conscientious objection," Pope Francis said.

There are still Heroes at the Vatican!!

He has the face and demeanor of a Secret Service body guard.
That's good because he is a Body guard.

Watch him in action at 1h32m50s and 1h34m30s!!

Sisters and Brothers, all is not lost with this papacy! Watch this past Christmas Vigil Mass from beginning to end. The music and overall reverent atmosphere are beautiful.  Thanks to MSGR Marini and his 'Body guards', there is no hand Communion, 


There is even kneeling for Communion @ 1h31m00s and a beautiful kneeling for the Creed 'et incarnatus est...' (57m30s)

Do not lose hope!  Cardinal Sarah still reigns at CDW and apparently MSGR Marini is continuing his reverence revolution he began under Pope Benedict. (and the Holy Father will [[I HOPE]] regularize SSPX without them swearing to Vatican II) These things are not nothing!


The Holy Father is letting MSGR Marini continue on his way.  That should tell us something.

(From US Border Patrol Website) The 'Fiscal year' 2017, which ended 30 Sept, recorded the 2nd lowest number of border migrant deaths, 294, going back thru the two presidencies of Obama and Bush.  Trump wasn't president the first four months of the Fiscal Year but already his first year total was almost 80 fewer deaths than the annual average of 370 deaths per year for Obama and 384 deaths per year for Bush.

Sadly, the facts can't stop the AP and USAToday from claiming....
migrant deaths up  !!???
