DURING JUBILEE FOR MERCY FORGIVENESS of THE SIN OF ABORTION


pope

In the new set of pastoral guidelines for the upcoming Holy Year of Mercy, Pope Francis has made some moves that are very momentous, allowing all priests to forgive the sin of abortion and granting SSPX priests the capacity to forgive sins.

 The Pope said in a Sept. 1 letter addressed to Archbishop Rino Fisichela, president of the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization, charged with organizing the jubilee, “One of the serious problems of our time is clearly the changed relationship with respect to life.”

In society today, “a widespread and insensitive mentality” has become a hindrance to the welcoming of new life, with many who do not fully know the deep harm done by the “tragedy of abortion,” he wrote.  But, the pope also noted that there are some women who, despite thinking abortion is wrong, feel that they had no other choice.

“I am well aware of the pressure that has led them to this decision. I know that it is an existential and moral ordeal. I have met so many women who bear in their heart the scar of this agonizing and painful decision,” he said.

Any woman who has an abortion automatically incurs a “latae sententias” excommunication, along with any who assisted her in the process.   Due to this excommunication, the sin of abortion normally can be absolved by a bishop or some priests appointed to that bishop.  For some occasions like Lent or Advent, some bishops extend this faculty to all priests within their diocese.  In the United States, the ability to absolve abortion has already been delegated to all priests.

But Pope Francis is taking this to a universal level.  He said that God’s forgiveness cannot be deprived of any person who has sincerely repented, especially when the person comes to the Sacrament of Confession in order to be genuinely reconciled with the Father.

Due to this, Francis stated, he has allowed all priests for the year of Jubilee of Mercy “to absolve of the sin of abortion those who have procured it and who, with contrite heart, seek forgiveness for it”.

HILLARY AND SOME GUY SHE KNOWS


Hillary email article

A newly released Clinton email that was sent to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from her close adviser Sidney Blumenthal, was about Speaker of the House John Boehner calling him a lazy alcoholic and saying that he is loathed by other Republicans.

“Boehner is despised by the younger, more conservative members of the House Republican by his personal behavior.  He is dubious, alcoholic, lazy, and without any commitment to any principle.”

Blumenthal also stated that Boehner tries to “buy the members with campaign contributions,” and further added that “his hold is insecure”.  He is nothing like a natural leader of a revolution is – such as Speaker Newt Gingrich.  He is not riding the crest of a revolution into power.   Instead he is careworn, dull and muffled, holding nobody’s continuing loyalty.

Blumenthal also said that “Boehner is beholden and somewhat scared of his base.  He twitches when they make gestures that might undermine his position.  His impulse is to hand out money”.

Many emails from Blumenthal to Clinton during her term have been a point of debate since the long term Clinton ally was denied a State Department post for being too divisive.   But he seemingly took up a sort of informal role sending information to Hillary that he was picking up at home and abroad.  Clinton has in response labeled Blumenthal only “some guy I know,” stating that all his emails were unsolicited.

This is way she was trying to keep her private emails private!

1st ANNIVERSARY OF THE U.S. WAR AGAINST ISIS


isis

September will be the 1st anniversary of the US war against the Islamic State referred to as ISIS. Many believe that the American efforts are not showing any real success. This was reported Sunday 8/31 on NBC News.

Richard Engel reported on Meet the Press Turkey’s recent ok for drone and airstrike missions based in their country was a great tactical gain but he added, “ISIS doesn’t seem to be shrinking.”

Engel quoted one US official saying that the terror group’s international branches are “growing like crazy, into North and West Africa, Arabia, Afghanistan and into the Far East. ISIS has expanded far more quickly and extensively than Al Qaeda ever did.

Currently Special Operations is in the middle of a major review in policy to find any new global strategy to deal with the problem of ISIS.

The strategy currently is built on 3 pillars, “and they’re all shaky,” Engel said. The retraining of the Iraqi army has been very slow and Iran often calls the shots, he said. There have only been a few Syrian rebels trained and other have been kidnapped before beginning training. The airstrikes have had success in targeting and killing ISIS and fighters. The airstrikes have been successful in killing ISIS leaders and fighters, but they all are quickly replaced.

 

The war against ISIS didn’t begin soon enough for many observers anyway after President Barack Obama initially described the group as the “J.V. squad.”

The more fighters that are recruited by ISIS the more chance there will be assaults in the United States homeland.

THE TRAIL OF TEARS


 Over 9 million Syrians have fled their homes since the start of the civil war in March 2011, trying to find refuge in neighboring countries or within other regions of Syria itself.

 refurgees 1

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), reports over 3 million have fled to Syria’s immediate neighbors Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan and Iraq.  Many of the 6.5 million are internally displaced within Syria having started a migration to Europe on any means of travel they can manage with many drowning on overloaded rafts and life boats. 150,000 Syrians have already declared asylum in the European Union, while member states have pledged to resettle 33,000 more. The vast majority of these resettlement spots – 28,500 or 85% – are pledged by Germany.

The Mediterranean Sea is the most danger border between Europe and its neighbors and the world’s most dangerous border between countries not at war with each other. Three problems are developing: sea routes to Europe are old; places of embarking and unloaded have changed in relation to control areas; and the risk of dying at sea has increased especially in the last months.

 

This migration from war-torn Syria has led to an invasion of asylum seekers in distant Sweden which is the only country in Scandinavia receiving refugees and has acquired a character as a welcoming refuge.  


Up to 30,000 Syrians have come to Sweden since the war started.  Most arrive by plane from Turkey after travelling secretly for months with the help of human smugglers – a journey which can set a refugee back thousands of dollars.

 

One truck was found abandoned last week in Austrian with refugees locked in – over 25 were dead and others sick from dehydration and lack of food.

The number of refugees involved on the Trail of Tears has been totaled at 4,089,023.  Many are elderly and children; as well as young men travelling alone to find work and somewhere to live then their families will come.

MESSAGE TO TRUMP FROM HILLARY’S CAMP


Hillary Clinton‘s campaign released a statement last night ripping Donald Trump for his personal sniping at staffer Huma Abedin.

During a fundraiser in Massachusetts tonight, Trump went on a riff about Abedin and her husband “perv” Anthony Weiner.

Trump mocked Weiner for his sexting and said that Abedin must be “desperately in love” with him if she stays with him, as well as saying she must clearly share everything with her husband.

A Clinton spokesman sent out this blistering statement tonight condemning Trump’s remarks:

GLENN BECK ABOUT TRUMP


Glenn Beck has a hard time buying that Donald Trump is a sincere man of faith after listening to what he’s publicly said about his religious beliefs.
The kicker for Beck today was Trump being asked about the Bible on Bloomberg yesterday. Mark Halperin asked him to name his favorite Bible verses, and Trump said it’s personal, so he doesn’t want to get into it.
When asked whether he’s more an “Old Testament guy or New Testament,” Trump said, “Probably equal. I think it’s just incredible, the whole Bible is incredible.”
Beck today found that to be just so insincere, saying, “You can’t be Mr. Straight Shooter and come out and do this.”
He said Trump should just be honest and say he’s not a religious guy, but instead he keeps saying things like this and “when he turns out to be a lie… he’ll be wildly unpopular.”
Yes, Beck predicted that Trump being insincere on his faith will lose him supporters.

WHAT ARE HILLARY AND BILL UP TO


GetFile.aspx

Reportedly former President Bill Clinton is “very agitated” because of a potential challenge to Hillary by Vice President Joe Biden’s for the Democratic nomination.

 

The Clinton campaign is tracking every move that Biden’s makes. Add this to controversy over personal email service as well as a very strong challenge from Vermont independent Bernie – you have a primary season that will be very interesting.

 

Bill may be agitated but not Hillary Clinton. Several of her top campaign officials believe that a Biden run will energize an otherwise “lackluster” campaign.

 

Bill – Hillary has to work for the job – she just can’t walk in and set down.

 

HILLARY CLINTON DEPARTS ST. IGNATIUS LOYOLA CHURCH FOLLOWING FASHION DESIGNER DE LA RENTA'S MEMORIAL SERVICE IN THE MANHATTAN BOROUGH OF NEW YORK

Hillary came back from vacation early to “meet and greet” in Iowa. During a press conference, Hillary spoke about the reporter and cameraman and the deadly on the air shooting. Clinton vowed to address the gun violence problem in America if she is elected president.

 

Specifically, Clinton spoke of instituting “universal background checks: saying, that we have to just put some time-out between the person who is upset because he got fired or the domestic abuse or whatever motivation may be working on someone who does this, maybe there is a way to prevent this type of carnage.

CLINTON EMAIL SCANDAL FALLS APART


clinton 2
Anti-Hillary folks, there is bad news. State Dept. Says There Was No Policy Against Private Email.
On CNN’s New Day, State Department spokesman John Kirby said, “We have said in the past, Chris that there was no policy prohibiting the use of a private email account here at the State Department, and that is still a fact.

Oh no! Facts. There was no policy against using a private email account when Mrs. Clinton was Secretary of State. And the State Department has said this repeatedly but folks keep ignoring this FACT.

Now, obviously, we have policies in place now that highly discourage that, and you are supposed to use your government account so that there is a constant, permanent record of it, but at the time she was not violating policy.

New policies somehow do not apply retroactively. No policy when Mrs. Clinton was SOS. No policy at all. She violated no policy because there was no policy to violate.

And, in fact, Colin Powell used one. And, SOS Clinton followed the process that SOS Powell set up.
How sad. There just isn’t any “there” there. All that GOP angst and hyperbole.From Daily Kos
