CALIFORNICATION: West Hollywood has allocated $300,000 in taxpayer money to fund a pilot guaranteed, $1,000/month income program that will run from April 2022 to September 2023. Applicants must reside in the City of West Hollywood, be 50 years or older, identify as LGBTQIA, and have an individual income of $41,400 or less.

CATHOLIC: This is worth the time, esp. if you’re Catholic and concerned about the state of the RCC in these hand basket times. – CLICK [1:05:07] to hear Fr. James Altman give a talk entitled, “Obedience to God, Not Man.” I’m thinking Fr. Altman’s bishop made a tactical error when he fired him from his pastorate. He’s got so much more time now to speak out about the corruption in the RCC.

During the last ten minutes, he talks about the connection between Pope Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) and long-time sexual abuser of men and boys, now former Cardinal McCarrick. I didn’t know any of this stuff. It’s really damning. But it just affirms my suspicion that Bergoglio is a homosexual who, for many years, actively committed mortal sins. He’s pretty old now, but who knows … maybe those fires still burn. [See the section below, especially the Veritas Vincit article.]

UPDATE on McCreepick – He has been charged! The crime occurred in Massachusetts, where he wasn’t a state resident when the alleged abuse took place. The statute of limitations stopped when he went home. He’s pleaded not guilty and the judge has ruled his archdiocese be held accountable. There are other news stories at NY Post … if you’ve got the stomach for them. I want to cry just looking at the headlines. Click the bottom link.

EDUCATION: “Nothing speaks to our national decline quite like the country’s highest-ranking education advocate sporting a sign with an upside-down Ukrainian flag.” – Lafayette Lee

That’s a printed sign. Looks like somebody at the AFL-CIO got it wrong and these two brainiacs didn’t catch it until after they sent out the tweet … which has since been deleted. I’m guessing all those signs are probably being reprinted as well.

FYI: The flag’s orientation is easy to remember if you know that sunflowers are the national flower. Sky on top. Flowers on bottom.

EU: The pandemic is over and the vaxxx has been proven to be unsafe and ineffective. So the jackboots running the EU have decided not to cancel the passports, but to extend them until the middle of NEXT year!

This really is total, unadulterated bullsh*t. The Council of Europe has agreed to extend the Covid digital pass until June 2023. The Orwellian twist is that it is in the name of ‘free movement’.” – David Quinn

JAPAN: [1:03] – Japan has had 16 earthquakes in the past week, with 6 of them happening within 24 hours. The biggest was 7.3.

LENTEN MEDITATION: “You pay God a compliment by asking great things of Him.” -St. Teresa of Avila

MANDATES: In the article linked here, David Brown argues that fighting vaxxx mandates with piecemeal arguments about effectiveness or safety or aborted fetal cells or natural immunity is a mistake. “We are free, or we are not. Science is not the arbiter of that freedom.”

After quoting Article 1 of the UN Declaration of Human Rights states that “all humans are born free and equal in dignity and rights”, Dr. Brown asserts, “In consequence, freedom cannot be conditional on medical status or choice of medical procedure. If we are born free, we do not acquire freedom through compliance.”

POPE FRANCIS: The pontiff recently removed a Puerto Rican bishop from office and replaced him with a 79-year-old retiree, because the bishop had publicly supported people who conscientiously objected to the COVID-19 vaccine.

The same pontiff has not even criticized two German bishops who had public denounced traditional RCC teaching on homosexuality. Last month, one of them said the teaching was “no longer correct”; the other said two weeks ago that same-sex relationships are not sinful.

The graphic refers to things Francis has said and written that seem to contradict RCC doctrine regarding salvation and damnation. See the Veritas Vincit link below. (FYI: veritas vincit is Latin for truth conquers.)

I think it is important to stress that Pope Francis has taught nothing ex cathedra, that is, from the chair (of Peter). These are the only papal teachings that are infallible. The rest of what spews out of his mouth and pen are ranked according to a hierarchy of truths that range from “Catholics should seriously consider this” to “some reporter says he said this.”

TEXAS: CLICK [3:14] to hear an update about the border wall and the latest schmuck move by the LOSER in the WH.

VFAUXTUS: An MSNBC analyst said of Harris’ performance in Europe, “Yet another piece of her lived experience that she really brings to this role as Vice President in this moment of crisis, and that is her role as prosecutor, right? This is somebody who is used to kind of taking on bad guys for a living. And so, her really putting her finger in the chest of Vladimir Putin and saying that there will be consequences.

And back in the real world, President Zelensky’s former spokeswoman tweeted that it would be a “tragedy” if Harris ever became president.

GRAMMY NOTES: When your grandkids’ school is visited by leprechauns. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
