Pope Francis is Catholic

RUSH: New pope. I am not Catholic. But I have endeavored, I have dug deep, I have attempted to find out from sources that I trust as much as I can, that I can understand, that I could then relay to you about this new pope. He´s the first pope from the Americas. I realize some of you from Rio Linda say, "What a minute. Argentina? That´s South America." He´s the first one. And he didn´t want to be pope. But there´s some incredible things about this man. He is a classic Catholic theologian.

We Catholics who adhere to the teachings (dogmas and doctrines)of the Roman Catholic Church are delighted and grateful to the Holy Spirit for inspiring the cardinals to elect Jorge Mario Cardinal Bergogli, S.J. as the new Supreme Pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church, the humble Servant of the Servants of God, Bishop of Rome, and shepherd of 1.7 billion Roman Catholics world-wide.

A humble man, a conservative. A teacher of math. Yes, MATH. This alone should qualify him as a much needed addition to the leaders of the ´free world´ There is much about this choice to be rejoiced. God bless him and guide him well on this journey.

The church has endured for 2,000 years. Anyone think the modern liberal media will endure that long? They´ll be forgotten by history not long after they pass from the scene. In the meantime, the church will endure until the end of time.

First, though I am not Catholic, I find this choice to be excellent news.

Now a different point, or thought.

I have heard a number of times over the years of a prophecy that named, or somehow identified all the popes and supposedly the list ended with the recently retired pope. There was none named after, which led me to wonder in the conspiratorial fashion that is so much fun to play with, if the Church would be leaderless, or just like the last days of Rome itself, would have pretenders in charge.

I was very fascinated that the ritual to elect a new Pope was undertaken in good order, and am especially delighted that they elected a man with great courage. The curch may have better leadership than it has had in a long time, I look forward to his dealing with the corruption and maybe even more, the number of abuse cases that continue get time on the MSN

So let´s see, world didn´t end Y2K, world didn´t end December 2012, and a new Pope was elected.

I´m a lifelong Catholic and I´ve never heard the supposed prophecy you´re referring to, #5. There are lots of silly "prophecies" from time to time, but not generally among Catholics.

Some people, for instance, love parsing Revelations for clues, such as when the "Millennium" ends, forgetting Christ´s admonishment that no one knows when the end will come other than "my Father in Heaven." Seems pretty clear that some putz on a soapbox doesn´t have any insight as to when the world will end. We know the Church will endure--Jesus said so.

There are prophesies by St Malachi that has a Benedict as the last of his list, and then the last Pope would be a Peter, but he never said how many Popes there would be in between the end of his list and the final Peter

The perfect headline, isn´t it? It will be fun to watch so many cable news anchors who tout their Catholic credentials yet are obviously liberal as can be. Hee-hee. I think to say we can expect some heads exploding in the next years is probably an understatement.

Habemus Papam -- We have a Pope, in the most glorious meaning of the phrase.

We have a spiritual leader...all of us, not just Catholics...who knows the true spirit of service and self-sacrifice, and traditional teachings.

And it has been only five weeks since we were delightfully introduced to another spiritual/secular leader: Dr. Ben Carson.

And little more than three months since Ted Crz and Rand Paul emerged from an otherwise-devastating election to join Marco Rubio in the Senate.

And millions of people are watching "The Bible" on cable TV.

We are coming out of the wilderness, friends, to a new shining day.

Laus Deo

Report: Hillary Clinton Says

Hillary Rodham Clinton reportedly compared Russian President Vladimir Putin’s incursion into Ukraine to the behavior of Adolf Hitler. Clinton, the former secretary of state and a potential presidential candidate in 2016, made the remarks at a private fundraiser Tuesday night in Long Beach, Calif., according to the Long Beach Press-Telegram newspaper. “Now if this sounds familiar, it’s what Hitler did back in the ’30s,” she said at an event for the Boys & Girls Clubs, according to the newspaper. “The ethnic Germans, the Germans by ancestry who were in places like Czechoslovakia and Romania and other places, Hitler kept saying they’re not being




The Back to Pelosi Budget
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial    Original Article

President Obama released his 2015 budget proposal on Tuesday, and the best way to understand it is as a campaign-strategy memo to return Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House. After the rude four-year interruption of a GOP House, Mr. Obama is revving up the tax and spend engines to turn out Democrats this fall and change the debate away from ObamaCare. One of the President´s more amusing fiscal sleights-of-hand is his claim that the federal government has been enduring "austerity." Taxpayers should be so lucky.

Young, charismatic, good-looking, hip, and glib are all superficial traits that supposedly cerebral liberal elites have a bad habit of believing trump experience, knowledge, humility, and what the Greeks called pathei mathos, learning through requisite pain. Once someone is acclaimed as a liberal prodigy by elites, stamped with the right Ivy League brand and aristocratic contacts that resonate through networking and cocktail parties along the Boston to D.C. corridor, all normal cross-examination seems to end. He is anointed a genius—and then usually Nemesis strikes, in the fashion that the once just-about-to-be-appointed New York senator Caroline Kennedy could not find a polling

National Security: The president who mocked his presidential foe in 2012 for saying Russia was our greatest geopolitical threat now watches as China backs Moscow as it reclaims a province of its lost empire. As it turns out, 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney was right, too, when in the third presidential debate President Obama ridiculed him for listing, in response to a question, the Russia of Vladimir Putin as our number one strategic geopolitical threat. "You said Russia. Not al-Qaida. You said Russia," Obama rebuked him regarding our biggest threats. "The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy

Despite Michelle Obama’s frequent media appearances, the public prefers her predecessor, a new poll finds. In fact, the first ladies during both Bush administrations had higher average favorability ratings than Obama and Hillary Clinton did during their respective times in the White House. While their husbands were in office, an average of 73 and 77 percent of Americans had a favorable view of Laura and Barbara Bush, respectively, according to a new Gallup survey. Both also enjoyed relatively low unfavorability ratings; just 10 percent thought negatively of the elder Bush, and only 15 percent of her daughter-in-law. Obama is not too far

Decline: The people, not politicians, get the credit for making America the greatest nation on earth. We also get the blame for the mess we´re now in: Americans elected this misguided president twice. Those who became adults in the Age of Obama may find it difficult to believe, but we once had a president who recoiled from routine use of the words "I" and "me" in his public utterances. "I never won anything you didn´t win for me," Ronald Reagan said in his farewell broadcast to the nation. "They never saw my troops. They never saw Reagan´s regiments: the American people."

Obama´s $4 Trillion Budget: Liberalism´s Last Hurrah Barack Obama keeps saying there isn´t a government program for every problem in America, but you wouldn´t know it from reading his new 2015 federal budget. This nearly $4 trillion document would spend more federal dollars on everything from climate change to green energy to transit systems to welfare state expansion to federal land purchases to day-care subsidies. The spending blueprint is a back-door scheme to bust the budget caps that already were raised just last December. It calls for spending $56 billion above those caps, to be paid for by "loophole closing" tax increases to pry

Budget For Fiscal 2015

Fiscal Irresponsibility: Just how out of touch is President Obama? In the midst of a faltering economy and rising global threats, he proposes a budget that would sharply cut defense spending and impose $1.8 trillion in tax hikes. Despite its relative insignificance in the grand scheme of things, the annual White House budget proposal does provide a window into the president´s thinking on the size and scope of government. The fiscal 2015 budget — released a month late on Tuesday — also manages to showcase Obama´s worrisome detachment from reality. The budget rests, for example, on the assumption that real GDP growth this

RUSH: This is Anthony, Colorado Springs, Colorado. Hello, sir. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hi. CALLER: Thank you, sir. I´d like to say the Putin is not invading the Ukraine. He´s ensuring that his 20% pro-Russian supporter base is not dissolved or dismantled before the Ukrainian elections. That way he can ensure that he gets a neutral, non-pro-EU government in this presidential election. He can grow his 20% supporter base to 35% for the next election, and get a pro-Russian government in that election.

President Barack Obama is a “low-IQ US president,” whose threat to launch a military offensive should nuclear talks fail is an oft-cited punchline in the Islamic Republic, particularly among children, an Iranian general said on Tuesday. “The low-IQ US president and his country’s Secretary of State John Kerry speak of the effectiveness of ‘the US options on the table’ on Iran while this phrase is mocked at and has become a joke among the Iranian nation, especially the children,” General Masoud Jazayeri said, according to the semi-official Fars News Agency.

Ms. Maddow told colleague Andrea Mitchell that Mr. Bush’s entire Middle East policy has led to several overseas conflicts, from the Iraq War to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine dispute. “The decisions of our generation on national security are determined more than anything by what the George W.

But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

The crisis in Ukraine has brought out a fresh round of critics of President Obama´s foreign policy who see a pattern emerging: the president tries to assert his authority and direct events on the world stage with empty threats, which inevitably have no follow through. With each instance, U.S. power grows weaker as foreign powers view Mr. Obama as the president who cried wolf. The latest case: Mr. Obama´s public warning to Russia to stay out of Ukraine was followed by an invasion just days later. It´s just the latest failure, say critics who point to Syria as an example.

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.

We are embroiled in a global conflict, and the supposed “leader of the free world” is taking photo ops at a grade school, making statements about the invasion of Ukraine on a kids’ rug. Meanwhile, Putin incredibly denied that any Russian troops are in Ukraine, and somehow President Barack ‘I-call-the-Russian-invasion-an-uncontested-arrival’ Obama actually thought it was a good idea to set up a lectern on a grade school alphabet mat when the entire world is seeing the consequences of his weakness. This was the guy known for dramatic stagecraft and brilliant political framing, and this is what we get? Just amazing.
