CANCELING DOCTORS: The American Board of Pediatrics, American Board of Family Medicine, and American Board of Internal Medicine support the Federation of State Medical Boards’ decision that all boards should revoke or suspend the license and certification of doctors who question the safety of the experimental COVID-19 jabs.

CATHOLIC: Pope Francis appears to be proposing a totally new way to look at the Sacrament of Reconciliation, one that goes against everything the RCC has ever taught about it. This is seriously disturbing and leads me to once again lean on the hope of the Illumination of Conscience will be soon.

No one knows for sure when this Illumination of Conscience will happen, just like no one knows when Christ will come again. All we can do is be like the wise virgins: keep the oil in your lamps by remaining in a state of grace.” – Mary Fernandez @ Humble Housewives

COVID-19: [13:41] – Israelis has probably the highest vaccination rate in the world. They got past the 70% “herd immunity” rate back in February or March. But then, in the summer, Israel suddenly saw skyrocketing numbers of cases. So the government mandated a third dose. They rolled it out very quickly and now they have the highest number of COVID cases since the virus first hit. Deaths are also spiking. So now they’re talking about a fourth dose. Riiight … “it’s not working so let’s do more of the same”?

EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN CHURCH in AMERICA: “At this point, the ELCA is a TikTok page run by the Human Rights Campaign — a denomination of 3.3 million members that has caved so fully to the spirit of the age that it is rapidly becoming difficult to tell the difference between a church service and Drag Queen Story Hour (something that is no doubt coming to nurseries across the ELCA in no time at all.) These churches are leading their dwindling flocks astray with promises that what God wants is for them to do whatever they want and be whoever they want to be. The good news, at least, is that they’re being open about who they are. The wolves in sheep’s clothing have shed their fleeces, and nobody sitting in their pews can pretend to be deceived. ” -Jonathon Van Maren

FAUXTUS: Independents are key to every election.

FRANCE: For ten consecutive weekends, thousands of French citizens have joined protests against vaccine mandates. Last week, about 3,000 French nationals working in the medical and care sector were suspended for refusing the jabs.

HEROES TO ZEROES: Three hundred employees have been suspended and 125 have quit Indiana University Health for refusing the jab.

Novant Health of North Carolina has suspended approximately 375 health care workers from 15 hospitals, 800 clinics and hundreds of outpatient facilities for refusing the jab.

IOWA: CNN’s Chris Cilizza wrote, “It’s the rare poll that makes an entire party sit up and take notice. The new Iowa poll is one of those polls. … If the President’s numbers in Iowa are anything close to where they are today [when the midterms come around] it [will be] an absolute disaster for Democrats.”

LOGIC: “If you have enough head trauma” [12:58] – “Fear puts people in a weakened state. They can’t access their intelligence if you keep them scared enough.”

PAPACY: Last year, my then-pastor told me that, because LifeSiteNews publishes criticism of Pope Francis, they are “outside the communion” and that my continuing to visit the site would put my “salvation in serious jeopardy.” Because I know about St. Catherine of Siena, I know he is 100% wrong and I’m glad he was transferred to another parish this summer. Still, his harsh remarks really hurt me badly.

I bring it up here now, because I just read that the pontiff apparently agrees with that priest’s high opinion of him. Recently, he griped to a bunch of Jesuits about “a large Catholic television channel that has no hesitation in continually speaking ill of the Pope.” Although he did not name the network, the reference clearly was to EWTN.

But the Catholic Church is not a cult and the man occupying the Chair of Peter is not above criticism. The doctrine of papal infallibility has strong limitations on it and do not include his comments to jerknalists, his personal maunderings, or his prickly pants feelings about being called out.

SCOTUS: On December 1, the Supremes will begin hearing arguments in a case called Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health that directly challenges the constitutionality of Roe v. Wade.

VAERS: On Friday Sept 18, 2021, The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) held a Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee meeting to discuss the Phizer supplemental Biologics License Application for administration of a third dose, or “booster” dose, of the CV injection, in individuals 16 years of age and older. After this eight hour sharing of information, the board voted overwhelmingly (16 to 2) to not recommend boosters. The graphic above is one of the slides one of the panel members showed. The graphs show a “clear failure of these products.”

CLICK for a laugh.

  1. Here I am again, being all gnitpicky about the language in a simple meme.

    “[God] does, however, want you to pray to Him before you start digging in the wrong place.”

    Reads like: pray, then go ahead and dig in the wrong place. Heh.

    I presume the intended meaning is something like “lest” you start digging in the wrong place.

    Also good to remember: call that before-you-dig number so they can come out and flag where utilities lines are… lest you dig in the wrong place. 😀

    I did like the picture of the old guy leaning on his shovel.

      You’re so right. LEST would’ve been better. And that one’s on me. The meme I swiped didn’t have the text at the bottom. 🙂

      Also, utilities. SO important.
