The Outrageous Assault on
the Knights of Columbus

Washington Free Beacon, by Matthew Continetti

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/11/2019 6:14:54 AM

Kamala Harris is set to announce her candidacy for president sometime around Martin Luther King Jr. Day. What sort of chief executive would she be? Well, here´s your first clue: On December 5, Harris posed a series of written questions to Brian Buescher, President Trump´s nominee for District Court in Nebraska. The third question reads as follows: Since 1993, you have been a member of the Knights of Columbus, an all-male society comprised primarily of Catholic men. In 2016, Carl Anderson, leader of the Knights of Columbus, described abortion as ‘a legal regime that has resulted in more than 40

What is it with the Democrat women in Congress? They are so obnoxious; Sheila Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters, Kamala Harris, Mazie Hirono, OccTex, Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi...vipers all. Is it the power-intensive job that draws this kind of obnoxious women, or is it just that obnoxious women are naturally drawn to this kind of job?

I AM Catholic and a Knight. The average Catholic is barely Christian and only marginally practices their faith. They don´t care about Kamala´s attacks on K of C. This is why most of my extended family from the upper mid-west votes for abortion advocating Democrats and why my son a Notre Dame alumnus is ashamed of his alma mater and will no longer wear his ND ring. Demoncrats like Kamala have forever been at war with Catholicism. It wasn´t just blacks who were the target of the KKK who were all Democrat party members and voters. And THAT is in fact ironic - that modern black Dems now follow in the footsteps of their previous tormenters - they just don´t wear the white robes.

Jesus Himself said that His followers would be at odds with "the World" --- which in this context means the materialistic, the corrupt, and the venal.

For that reason it causes me a sigh of relief that there is this open conflict. I am glad that the forces of filth are targeting it so relentlessly. It means --- human sinfulness aside --- there is still something irrevocably good at the core of this ancient Church.

Catholics who practice their religion and still attend mass regularly are still pro-life. And there are a lot of them. Unless you live in a leftist shiitehole like Madison, WI, walk into a Catholic Church on Sunday morning and count the parishioners in the pews and then walk down the street to the nearest Protestand church and count theirs.

Or you can attend the annual March for Life on Jan. 22 in DC and count the Catholic organizations who attend. And the number of people under the age of 25 who have seen large swaths of their generation wiped out by abortion.

Finally, the Catholic Church is the single largest charitable organization on the planet and the members of the K of C in America engage in 10 million man hours of charitable work, mostly to benefit children, every year. How many hours has the odious Harris engaged in - and fund raisers for PP don’t count?

If one is interviewing a woman for a job, it is absolutely forbidden to ask her age, how many children she has or if she is planning to become pregnant. One would lose a large lawsuit for discrimination.

FTA: Article Six, Section Three, of the Constitution: "[N]o religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or Public Trust under the United States."

I have often wondered, in watching these "job interviews," what would happen if the nominee answered one of these derogatory reigious questions:

"I´m sorry, Senator, but it would violate the Constitution´s Article 6 Section 3 for me to answer that question. I will not violate the Constitution, I will follow the law and precedents in my rulings."

None of our historical, traditional organizations can pass the democrats´ litmus test these days because they have deliberately perverted all of the rules of a decent society to conform to their own brand of immorality and paganism.

Language is twisted in a way that would make Joseph Goebbels proud. "A woman´s reproductive rights" is now a synonym for murder. "Sexual freedom" defines the process of changing legally what God has created. A "man" is now hated for the very qualities that have made this country great and we are supposed to accept only the feminine, metrosexual, weak creatures that psychologists now define as men. How have we let them go so far? Cowardice, pure cowardice and inaction.

The Boy Scouts, Knights of Columbus and many others have succumbed to their depravity and given the green light to BLM, Black Panthers and ANTIFA. Their ultimate goal is to make only immoral leftists eligible to run for office or head corporations. The time to start fighting back was fifty years ago but it´s never too late.

I think the Democratic Party cares more about plastic straws hurting turtles than they are about stainless steel straws being used to kill unborn babies . . .

their priorities are clearly screwed up as they slog along in their support of Planned Parenthood and their attacks on everything and everyone that is good and decent . . .

George Soros has been helping in an all-out campaign to foist abortion on the people of Ireland . . . destroy the people in any way you can, that is the Soros way and the DNC way . . . break down the people, their solidarity and cohesion and if that means destroying organizations too, like the Boy Scouts and the Knights of Columbus as well, that´s the program!

Just a thought - I saw a beautiful program on EWTN (the Catholic channel) about St. Gerard Majella (a Redemptorist from Italy) who has become known for helping women and their unborn babies . . . many women in Ireland over the generations have asked St. Gerard Majella for help and thus you will find some Irish children named Gerard (boys) and Majella (girls)

When was the last time we saw a Democrat with 15 consonants and 2 vowels in his name rise to position of importance in the party?

10 years?

20 years?

That´s what´s going on here. You can imagine what Kamela would have asked if this guy belonged to an Eastern Rite or Orthodox Church.

Likely prefaced it with "led by men with tall black hats".

The Democrats have abandoned the working class for certain, but even worse for them they abandoned the Catholics, and currently they are attacking ALL of the Eastern church faithful.

That´s much of the background in the anti-Trump agitation they are generating. He likes Slavic girls!

GAD!

Hey, and he knows some people with High consonant to vowel combination names... and he associates with former Commies and even speaks highly of some of them ~ and, oh, my goodness, he is not personally afraid of shaking hands with RUSSIANS.

What Kamela is doing is engaging in pure hatred of all that´s Eastern, all that´s Catholic, all that´s Christian, all that´s white, all that´s Western culture, everybody who resisted invasion by the Mongols...... but she´s currently just typical of the low quality of Democrat politicians and party workers.

The Kavanaugh hearings have exposed the Senate as the Club for Clowns. The fact that thespineless republican majority allows Harris and Feinstein to violate the Constitutional rights of judicial candidates is almost as large a problem as the immoral democrats.

High drama, few results as Trump

WASHINGTON— Staring down the next deadline to pay federal workers, the White House shifted tactics Tuesday, trying to bypass House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to negotiate with rank-and-file lawmakers even as President Donald Trump dug in for a prolonged shutdown. The House and Senate announced they would stay in session, canceling an upcoming recess week at home if the shutdown continued, which seemed likely. On the shutdown´s 25th day, Trump did not move off his demand to have Congress provide $5.7 billion to build his promised border wall with Mexico. Democrats say they will discuss border security once the government has

After the sessions — one on Oct. 3, the other Oct. 18 — Republican Rep. Mark Meadows called parts of Baker´s testimony "explosive." Republicans intended to make the interview transcripts public. The questioning was not conducted in a classified setting, and Baker had FBI and other lawyers with him the whole time.

A family dubbed Britain’s "first transgender family" has announced that they are encouraging the gender transition of their five-year-old son, Jayden. According to the family, Jayden, a biological male, likes dresses and hates "everything about being a boy." The little boy´s "step-dad," Greg Rogers, is a 27-year-old biological female who now identifies as a male. The child’s mother is a 21-year-old woman named Jody. Both Jodi and Greg are furious that concerned citizens (referred to as “trolls” by many U.K.-based outlets) have reported them to social services for apparent child abuse. The couple, however, maintain Jayden — who is on

It landed Saturday on the front page of the New York Times in an article citing “former law enforcement officials” claiming they had to deal with “explosive implications” that President Donald Trump was “knowingly” or “unwittingly” working for Russia. Thus, the story goes, there was a basis to begin the Russia collusion investigation.

Megyn Kelly finalized her exit from NBC News on Friday night — after months of difficult negotiations over whether she could ever talk about the backstabbing behavior from network brass and staffers. Kelly finally resolved her exit three months after she was axed as host of the 9 a.m. hour of “Today,” landing her a $30 million payout to take her salary to the agreed amount in her contract — a total of $69 million. The former Fox News host lasted just 18 months at NBC News, but Page Six learned during the course of her negotiations

The Fight for $15 isn’t living up to its promise. For years, liberals have claimed that the minimum wage needs to increase to $15 an hour to provide a living wage for full-time workers. The stated goal, as socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders writes on his website, is straightforward, “We must ensure that no full-time worker lives in poverty.” In one way, the campaign has been remarkably successful. California and New York are phasing in a statewide $15 an hour minimum wage. Numerous cities, including Seattle, Minneapolis and Washington D.C., have passed $15 an hour minimum wage

Gillette is embracing the #MeToo movement in a new digital ad campaign aimed at men, the latest message from an advertiser attempting to change societal norms. The ad, dubbed “We Believe,” opens with audio of news about the current #MeToo movement, bullying and “toxic masculinity.” A narrator then goes on to dispute the notion that “boys will be boys,” asking, “Is this the best a man can get? Is it? We can’t hide from it. It has been going on far too long. We can’t laugh it off, making the same old excuses.”
