The Devil Is Alive And Here!

I am a great admirer of Pope Francis who has brought to the Catholic church a new sense of care and responsibility for those who are poor and oppressed. He has challenged the Catholic hierarchy to fight for human rights. So, it is somewhat surprising to discover that Pope Francis is also engaged in another war against evil. He apparently believes int the existence of the Devil himself. The Pope has gone out of his way to aid those who believe themselves possessed by evil and will lay his hands on their heads to rid the afflicted of the Devil. He recently commented to the media that many claim he is old fashioned to speak about the Devil in the 21st century. His response, “look out because the Devil is here.”

Father Gabriele Amorta, a leading figure in the fight against evil and one who believes in exorcism pointed out an important point about Pope Francis and the fight against the Devil. “The sad truth is that there are many bishops and priests in pour church who do not really believe in the Devil. Because when you don’t believe the Devil wins.” I can understand that feeling, I live in the United States of America which contains Devils seeking to destroy the lives of poor people. Of course, our Devils go by the name of the Koch Brothers and the NRA.

Venezuela Leaders Are Not!

The history of Venezuela is a story about those with money who used that power to retain power in the country. The famous 1% in Venezuela were greedy, they only thought about themselves and eventually they lost a free election. The current President, Nicolas Maduro represents those who term themselves to be “Socialists” and regard the Castro regime as a model to pursue. Actually, this has turned out to be the reality of how Venezuelan leaders pursue their dream to end power of the wealthy. Inflation is about 57%, most stores lack anything in them, poverty is present, and the middle class is headed toward the United States of Central American nations like Panama. Anything other than the current state of affairs.

The Mauro regime just destroyed camps established by students who spend their days protesting rather than being in classrooms. Unless, they can change the economy, a college degree is worthless and will not lead to employment. Instead, they will head north. Members of the US Congress are calling for sanctions. We support that move. Venezuela is one clear example of how sanctions will compel changes in government –for the better.

Investigate The Pope Communist!

There are unconfirmed reports sweeping through Washington D.C. that the Republican Party has decided to close down the Benghazi investigation in order to direct their attention to the Catholic Menace posed by the Communist Pope Francis. Yes, Benghazi is among the great tragedies of the 21st century but it is nothing compared to the horror which the demented Pope Francis seeks to impose upon our job creators. Many are comparing his calls for redistribution of the wealth to Nazi policies of gassing to death Jews during the Holocaust. Pope Francis is simply a modern Hitler bent on destroying the lives and fortunes of those who seek to follow the ideas of Jesus Christ.

Pope Francis said the UN should support “the legitimate redistribution of economic benefits of the state.” He regards the centralization of wealth in the hands of a small group to be a form of “injustice.” First, they came for the wealth of our beloved wealthy people, next they came for their homes and property, next they came for their wives and daughters to be sold into sexual slavery, and finally, they came for Wall Street men!!

Tragedy Of Mexico

The American fascination with drugs, our desire to get high, our desire to experience trips into the unknown regions of our minds has resulted in untold millions of our people who are left with despair as well as left in prisons of reality as well as prisons in our minds. At the same time, we Americans have transformed the nation of Mexico into a hell of drugs, gangsters, drug lords, and wars which leave towns devastated and lacking any semblance of law and order. The state of Tamulipos lies on he border of the United States of America and thus is the avenue taken by millions of Mexicans who seek a road into peace, quiet and some form of decent living. At the same time, it is the center of wars between drug lords and their armies of death and destruction.

During the past few months 80 people have died as a result of wars between gangsters who make the typical Muslim terrorist come across as a man of peace. A prominent Mexican police lieutenant was just ambushed–by ten policemen! They were paid by drug lords to kill him in order to protect their routes of shame–and prosperity. As a woman noted to a member of the media: “this is a failed state with no law and order.”

LEGALIZE DRUGS AND END THE DRUG CARTELS!!

The Holy See Sees Differently

It is unfortunate for the Catholic religion that Pope Francis did not arrive a bit sooner for the institution. He inherited, not merely mistakes, a pattern of disregard for the rights of children which resulted in sexual abuse. In fairness, the vast majority of priests are NO sexual perverts. They are decent men who may not agree with those who believe in abortion rights or the right of women to equal status in the church. But, when the issue to be confronted is torture and sexual abuse, the bottom line is honesty, and working to end any such behavior. Vatican representatives have been in conflict with the UN committee on torture which claims that sexual abuse is a form of torture and wants the Vatican to abide by United Nations requirements and guidelines. The Holy See argues it is part of a sovereign entity without being a nation and thus UN guidelines do not apply.

Archbishop Silvano Tomasci insists “the Holy See intends to focus exclusively on the Vatican.” We await the intervention of Pope Francis to offer an alternative to this approach. One that respects the integrity and dignity of those in the Vatican while at the same time confronts the issue of abuse.

Who Is Pope Francis?

There are unconfirmed reports the state of Texas wants to place any and all writings of Pope Francis on the banned list. There are also unconfirmed reports Tea Party leaders are in hurried sessions with Sheldon Adelson about the possibility of forming an anti-Pope Francis Catholic Church which would return the church to the hands of the wealthy. After all, true American patriots know our Founding Fathers, just like that Jesus fellow, believed that God loved dearly those of wealth and power. Jesus was sent to bless the wealthy and sanction their oppression of the poor. If you don’t agree with conservatives, either read the Second Amendment or check into the Sermon on the Mount. I assume you do know that it took place on a mountain of money.

Anyway, Pope Francis tweeted: “Inequality is the root of social evil.” Previously, this Socialist pervert had urged governments to guarantee people “dignified work, education and healthcare!” It is now clear that Pope Francis is really a COMMUNIST, a SOCIALIST, and he cares not for job creators!

How can such a man head the Catholic Church?

Cool Hand Francis Warms Up Folks

There are some folks in the Vatican establishment who, on occasion, sort of get bothered by the new Pope. He has this habit, while dressed in the habit of being a Pope, of picking up the phone and just responding to a letter sent him by one of those Catholics who do not spend their days in the Vatican working on the great issues of humankind. These “cold calls” are a bit disturbing to folks like Ferdinand Lombardi, a spokesperson for the Pope. He is worried that when the Pope speaks without having things cleared through the Vatican establishment, the result might be “confusion and misunderstanding.” For example, the Pope expressed, off the cuff, an outrageous idea that a divorced woman who takes Communion is “not doing anything bad.”

Just imagine what God or Jesus up in Heaven think when a DIVORCED woman goes to Communion!! What next, female priests??

Time Out For Humanity

I frequently get the feeling that humanity needs a time out from the madness of the past few years. Republicans in America have lost any semblance of common sense with their ongoing tirades against “the government.” On one hand, they want “the government” to assume control over the bodies of women, on the other hand, they are armed to the teeth because “the government” wants to charge $1.35 per cow to graze on GOVERNMENT LAND! In Africa, Oscar is howling and crying at his trial, Boko Haram is daily going bonkers murdering Muslims in order to save Muslims from “the West.” In eastern Ukraine, masked men who wear Russian uniforms and speak Russian are working hard to create violence so President Putin can step in to end violence.

No one has been able to make sense of South Korean captain and crew fleeing a sinking boat after telling passengers not to leave. In Yemen, drones are droning along blasting away at people it terms to be “terrorists.” Pakistan is a poor excuse for what we term to be a “nation.” And, over in India it is rape day every day of the week on grounds, “boys will be boys.” It is now a hundred years since the Chicago Cubs won a world series and forty years since the New York Knicks won a title, any title. Americans get heavier and eventually the Earth will not be able to handle the weight.

How about a one month truce from any and all forms of violence to self, to others, to the planet!

Action In Ukraine

I can hear the sound of one shoe hitting the floor which indicates the Ukrainian government has finally decided to confront terrorists who seek to create violence in hope that having a few killed or wounded would open the door for President Vladimir Putin to send in his troops in order to restore law and order, Russian style, that is. Members of the Ukrainian army and special forces drove Russian backed terrorists from an airport and soon will drive them from buildings that have been seized in eastern areas of the country. Naturally, President Putin expressed his outrage at this “anti-constitutional action” by a government to take over a building owned by the government. This from a man who sends to jail on trumped up charges dozens of Russians whose only crime is not licking his boots!

So, what might happen:

Scenario One: Putin will send his troops across the border to “protect Russian citizens who happen to live in the Ukraine”

Scenario Two: Putin will go to the UN demanding action to protect Russian citizens.

Scenario Three: Putin will send in troops but deny he sent them in while insisting they were Russians who voluntarily rode their tanks and helicopters into the Ukraine to protect Russians.

Scenario Three is very likely.

Billionaire Doing Jail Time!

This story will probably shock most Americans, but in the nation of Italy a judge has finally decided that those with wealth must pay some sort of penalty for their misuse of money. Here in the United States only ONE man was ever sent to jail for manipulating money-Bernie Madoff– while the hundreds of stock brokers and financial wizards who, literally robbed millions of Americans, have never seen the inside of a jail. And, to add to the injury, most have never even endured a court action. Most just have THEIR COMPANY, not them, pay a fine and then proceed to go their merry way robbing and stealing from the poor in order to give to the rich.

An Italian court has sentenced former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi who was found guilty of tax fraud to a severe penalty. OK, so he does not actually go to jail. Ok, so he is not exactly a prisoner. BUT, the judge made clear to Silvio that “once a week, and for a period of no less than four hours” he is to work in a home for the elderly doing something. Perhaps:

1. He might teach them how to cheat on their taxes.

2. He might teach them how to cheat in Bingo.

Or, if there is an attractive nurse around, he might teach her the joys of sex.
