My Tribute to 2016 Team Golden Girls

The following image is my tribute to the Golden Girls who won gold for Team USA at the just concluded Rio Olympics. I made it in Sketchup (a CAD/3D modeling program) since my Photoshop license transferred from the original owner of my last laptop/hard drive/server expired.

Here we go:


Since it is about the Olympic team, it's free for you to share!

Another weekly Sunday Mass in New England

From the New Liturgical Movement blog: 

Effective Sunday, September 4, 2016, Holy Ghost Parish in Tiverton, Rhode Island (Fr. Jay Finelli, pastor) will have the Traditional Latin Mass every Sunday at 9AM and every Holy Day of Obligation. Holy Ghost has been offering the Novus Ordo ad orientem and a TLM on the First Sunday of every month. 

Despite having the best bishop in New England, the Diocese of Providence only had Sunday Masses in the Traditional rite at Holy Name in Providence (near Brown and RISD). 

Holy Ghost Parish is right over the Fall River, Mass. line. The Diocese of Fall River has a Francis appointee, and I suggest any Catholics who remain in this diocese to start crossing diocesan (and state) boundaries every Sunday to attend this Mass.

Is Katie Ledecky a devout Catholic?

God Bless Katie Ledecky! God Bless Team USA!
Since Olympic Gold Medalist Kathleen "Katie" Ledecky from Team USA says a Hail Mary before she swims, she has been reported by several news outlets as a "devout" Catholic. But does saying the Hail Mary alone make you a devout Catholic? 

The 19-year-old from Bethesda,  Maryland comes from a well-to-do family who sent her to Catholic schools. Fine, but so many "Catholic" schools accept anyone with money. Many of her classmates might have not been baptized Catholics. 

Unless Katie starts attending the Traditional Latin Mass, I would not count her in as a devout Catholic. Since her Olympic training might have interfered with her ability to attend a proper Sunday Mass, it is not her fault. 

Katie Ledecky is only a lay woman. But according to the August 12th edition of the "Catholic" Free Press , the Bishop of Worcester sat as a spectator at Bishop Athanasius Schneider's Pontifical High Mass at World Youth Day sponsored by Juventutem. (I can't imagine this was an official WYD event.) Supposedly this was his first Pontifical liturgy since his seminary days. 

As Bishop, he is responsible for the liturgy in his diocese. The fact that Bishop McManus can leave his diocese to be an official catechist at Catholic Woodstock and attend a Pontifical High Mass that Woodstockers would never attend shows that he is selling his flock out. Why isn't he relocating his episcopal throne to the Gospel side of St. Paul's Cathedral, moving the altar back against the reredos, and start offering Pontifical High Masses in his own cathedral church as a real bishop would? 

Young Catholics like Katie Ledecky are being corrupted in their spiritual life on a daily basis because of Vatican II. Please pray for them.

World Youth Day debuts porno sex-ed curriculum

I never supported World Youth Day because it's a Catholic Woodstock. But just like the 1969 festival at Bethel, New York, the Vaticanhas decided to hold workshops on how to present sex education in CCD classes. Life Site News has a disturbing slideshow of some of the material, many of which are pornographic. (Because they're so bad I'm not going to link to it.)

I have added the trademark symbol after the name of the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church because it ceases to be the spiritual headquarters. To those Bible-believing Protestants: St. Peter was the first Pope, but the Church is located over his tomb of martyrdom in Rome. There is no mention of a Vatican.

He might wear a white cassock, but if a pope doesn't not fulfilling the Petrine office faithfully, he is not to be followed. 

The Catholic Church is comprised with all orthodox believers (clergy and lay) who uphold all her Magisterial teachings and liturgical rites. They could live anywhere. 

The Church could be located anywhere in theory. Just look at the Avignon Papacies. 

Any of the bishops who are present at WYD instead of governing their dioceses should be condemning this once and for all. 

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.

Tim Kaine's parish

In his acceptance speech to be Hillary Clinton's viceroy, Sen. Tim Kaine mentioned his Jesuit schooling and membership at St. Elizabeth's Parish in Richmond, Virginia. Below is a recent screenshot from the parish Facebook:


(I blacked-out the names and icons of the commentators for privacy reasons.) If you read the first two comments to this imprimatur, I feel your pain. The Bergoglio ticket is now complete (with a fluent-Spanish speaker).

Under a Clinton-Kaine reign, expect to see the following within the first hundred days:
  • The virtual repeal of the First, Second, Ninth, and Tenth Amendments;
  • A pathway to legalization for anyone who entered the United States of America illegally;
  • The criminalization of private schools;
  • A Federal tax on almost everything;
  • 30-something-year-old feminists with no practical or judicial experience nominated to  the Supreme Court and throughout the Federal Judiciary;
  • and most importantly to my readers, THE CRIMINALIZATION OF THE TRIDENTINE LATIN MASS AND SACRAMENTS. 
I'm not kidding! 

Liberals and moderates have dismissed Donald Trump's nomination speech as too negative and dark. BUT THESE ARE DARK TIMES! America is in it's most dangerous time period since the Civil War. At this point, IF TRUMP WINS, THEN TRUMP WINS. This is not an endorsement, but I would expect whichever party who controls Congress next term to impeach and remove anyone who violates the Constitution. If The Donald misbehaves in the Oval Office or the Lincoln Bedroom, then I would prefer Mike Pence to step-in over Tim Kaine.

If Trump looses, then it will be the fault of Reince Priebus for allowing the debates to become entertainment. It will partially be the fault of Ted Cruz, who in my opinion should have not quit after Indiana and stayed until he was mathematically eliminated. If Trump didn't get his 1237 votes at the convention, then Cruz would have been the nominee, and we would have a chance. 

It is very ironic that the Democrats are holding their convention in Philadelphia, the place where the First and Second Continental Congresses met, and the Declaration of Independence written. Today's (D) party is not your grandfather's; they simply have no allegiance to the United States

If Trump wins and you really don't like it here, you have the right to leave. The United States does not force people to stay here if they don't want to live here. If you want to move to Canada with all the Hollywood celebrities, fine. But someone like me will be executed if I try to escape to the United Kingdom.

Replacement MacBook Pro configured; more bad news to catch up on...

I'm writing this post from my newly-configured replacement MacBook Pro. So without further ado, here are some of the bad headlines in the news recently:

I. MassGOP Governor signs Bathroom Bill

Signed into law on Friday, July 8th by RINO Charlie Baker, men can now use the ladies room and vice-versa. This is not to allow transgender persons, but those those of "gender identity." Just complaining about this stupid law can land someone as a convicted felon with a years sentence in state prison. 

II. Crooked Comey lets Crooked Hillary off the hook

The FBI is not a Federal Bureau of Integrity anymore. J. Edgar Hoover must be rolling in his grave. But why would the FBI Director accuse Hillary Clinton of reckless behavior (which was worse than originally thought) and then let her go with a warning? Since he is an Obama appointee, that's why. The (D) party doesn't believe in law and order. And since an FBI Director has a ten-year fixed term, only Congress can impeach and remove him. 

III. The War on Cops continues

More police officers have been killed in the line of duty this year than ever, and the most recent incident where five in Dallas were killed shows that America's Second Civil War is all about law and order and Judeo-Christian principles. 

Lastly, a fun political poster...

We've seen nothing yet

Today is Flag Day, a very important day for Americans. It is the 239th birthday of Old Glory, our nation's Flag. If you're kids are (still) in school today, I hope that they have an outdoor Flag Day ceremony at the flagpole in front of the school (weather permitting).

Unfortunately, the American Flag is being burned by terrorists who disrupt Donald Trump's campaign events while waving the Mexican flag and injuring innocent Americans who have the right to attend these events. At the San Jose riots, only four people were arrested out of over those hundreds of thugs.

This was not just a partisan issue, but an American issue. These riots are nothing compared to what would happen under a Hillary reign. (Yes, Hillary is running to be the dictator, not the President of the United States.) The Democratic party is now showing their true color: red blood. The (D) Mayor and Police chief of San Jose told the officers just to stand there in riot gear and do nothing. 

The (D) party and their policies have devastated this country the past eight years. Another liberal control of both Congress with a liberal President equals the end of America unless an Article V Convention of States is called. A (D) President with a (D) Senate majority will ensure the confirmation of at least three radical leftist Supreme Court justices who will interpret the Constitution for what it isn't. (E.g. repeal the Bill of Rights) Gone will be my right to practice my faith. Gone will be the freedom to run a blog like this one. Gone will be the right to peacefully protest. Gone will be the right to own a gun if you're a law-abiding citizen. Gone will be the required search warrant. Gone will be private property. Gone will be your right to a jury trial.

Loyalty to one's country is now more vital since the issue of the Trump University lawsuit and the American-born but Mexican-descented Federal judge who is presiding over the case. While Trump was stupid to even mention the case (since who cares about Trump University anyway?) during a Presidential campaign, there are valid concerns of impartiality because the judge is part of a group affiliated with the Mexican supremacist group La Raza. For those (D)s who are in public office, I doubt their allegiance to the United States for most of them.

If you are registered (D), then I would suggest to change your registration to something else before the election. It is evident that this party wants to complete the destruction of America. If you are a Latin Mass (or Eastern) Catholic, Evangelical Protestant, or Orthodox Jew, the world's largest holocaust awaits for all of us...

This column is not an endorsement of Donald Trump, since his behavior is troublesome for many Republicans, both Whigs and conservatives. Many people joined the GOP just to vote for Trump. Additionally, his positions are not clear on abortion, marriage, and bathrooms.

This election will determine whether or not we'll have a country by 2020. If you are a Republican and are okay with four years of Hillary Clinton, then God help us all. 

Back in the day there was a time that both Republicans and Democrats were patriotic. Andrew Jackson, FDR, JFK, LBJ, and Jimmy Carter would not get nominated by today's Democratic Party. 

On the ecclesiastical side of things, there is no surprise that Pope Francis backs Clinton. The USCCB is the unorthodox religious wing of the (D) party. You wonder why they rather coddle bergoglios over lawful citizens.
