Delegation to Canonization of
Popes John XXIII and John Paul II

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Dr. Susan Berry

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/16/2014 11:23:35 AM

The White House has announced that John Podesta, President Obama’s current Counselor, will lead his delegation to the Holy See for the Mass of canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II on April 27, 2014. Podesta will head the delegation which will also include Rep. Xavier Becerra, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, and Katie Beirne Fallon, Assistant to the President and Director of Legislative Affairs. Podesta is the founder and chairman of the Center for American Progress (CAP), a liberal think tank funded by wealthy liberal supporters such as George Soros, Peter B. Lewis, Steve Bing, and

Comments:
What an odious, unsavory group of individuals. They are the very antithesis of everything the Popes believed. It makes me sick. Will lightning strike?

What does the Vatican need with a political delegation from the U.S. anyway? American prelates will be in attendance, that´s all that´s necessary. The Vatican should ignore this phony delegation and not even permit it to be any part of the ceremonies if possible.

It comes as no surprise, first, that BO is sending such a delegation the mere presence of which is an affront to the Catholic Church; second, that this far Left cabal is so integral to BO and his regime.

Podesta et al are a left-wing mafia. CAP is indefatigable, unrelenting, heavily laden with money from the fattest of fat-cats.

If we have wondered who is really "running the show", who the power is and the one who both sets the policies and enforces them, it sure seems that CAP is it: BO will not and can not deviate or resist (even if he wants to).

Obama needs to share the high ground by implicit approval of the Pope´s actions.

My parish and several others around here will lead pilgrimages to Rome for the canonizations. As much as I love Rome, I´d avoid it during the next couple of weeks.

The Vatican is recognized as a small nation and has diplomatic relations with various countries. No problem.

Since there is little room at the Vatican itself for embassies and no tasks of importance anyway the diplomacy is rather pro forma. Again no problem.

But Canonization is a religious act and I see no reason the US should spend even a dime to send some Catholic pols or lend those attending any official status.

One of the many negative downstream consequences of illegal aliens flooding across the border is the increased possibility of voter fraud. Obama and his leftist allies are committed to thwarting any effort by states to protect the integrity of the voting process that would prevent illegal aliens and other ineligible individuals from voting. Judicial Watch has launched a nationwide effort to support election integrity. That effort continued this week, as we once again joined forces with the Allied Educational Foundation (AEF) to file an amicus curiae brief with the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit in support of

Nearly six in 10 people around the world express confidence in President Obama even as his approval rating in the United States is near an all-time low, according to a poll released Monday. A Pew survey of nearly 50,000 people from 44 countries found 56 percent worldwide have confidence in Obama to do the right thing regarding world affairs. Though that number has held steady from last year, it was 16 points higher when he first took office in 2009. While strong overall, in Germany and Brazil confidence in Obama has plummeted 17 points after reports last year that the

After an unprecedented day of attacks from 4 fronts, Sinai, Lebanon, Syria and Gaza, reports indicate that the Israeli government has agreed to an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire. The Jewish Week reports: Israeli media is now reporting that Israel has agreed to an Egyptian draft ceasefire proposal. Hamas has not yet replied, but there are hints it may agree. According to the proposal: There were would be de-escalation of the fighting beginning at 9 a.m. Israel time that would last for 12 hours. That would be followed by a ceasefire for 48 hours.

Here’s what I predicted on Friday: I haven’t seen any polls on impeachment lately, but I’d guess that impeachment supporters would start with something like 55-60 percent of the public opposed (all Democrats and a majority of indies) and 40 percent or so in favor (most Republicans). Via Gary Jackson, how’d I do? In other words, 68 percent think Obama shouldn’t be impeached. Of that number, 56 percent — a clear majority — think he hasn’t done anything to deserve impeachment and another 12 percent think he has but that we should decline to do it anyway, presumably for the good of

In the early 1970s, the press obsessed about President Nixon´s alleged "isolation," especially as the Watergate scandal, which in an objective lookback has to be seen as relative child´s play compared to what we´re seeing now, unfolded. Proof that Nixon´s "isolation" had been a constant media theme in previous months is found in an NBC Nightly News report on May 10, 1973, when a White House staff reorganization was characterized by reporter Richard Valeriani as "Nixon moving to end President(´s) isolation." On Fox News´s "The Five" on Friday, Democrat Bob Beckel relayed what he said was an anonymous comment by a

CNN anchor Don Lemon came to the defense (sort of) of cable news rival Al Sharpton today, agreeing with one of his guests that Sharpton might not be right all the time, but the right tends to exaggerate when it comes to Sharpton and makes him into some kind of “boogeyman.” Wall Street Journal columnist Jason Riley argued that Eric Holder and President Obama don’t want a serious conversation about race, because a few months ago they attended an event for Sharpton’s group.

Health authorities at a Navy base in Southern California took steps last weekend to curtail an outbreak of pneumonia and swine flu among illegal immigrant children housed at the facility, according to U.S. officials. The outbreak of disease among several of the nearly 600 immigrant children at the Naval Base Ventura County, located north of Los Angeles, initially was thought to be caused by deadly bacterial streptococcal meningitis, according to one official close to the issue. However, a spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said he was not aware of any cases of meningitis at the base. The pneumonia

WASHINGTON — President Obama had just disembarked from Air Force One and was still on the tarmac in Rome when he turned to his host, John R. Phillips, the American ambassador to Italy, with an unexpected request: How about a dinner party tomorrow night? Over the next 24 hours, the startled Mr. Phillips and his wife, the former Obama aide Linda Douglass, scrambled to gather some of Italy’s intellettuali.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office isn’t the only federal authority that has taken a stance against the name of the Washington Redskins. A federal judge in Maryland issued a ruling last week that purposely did not contain the team’s name, which has been described as an offensive slur against Native Americans. U.S. District Judge Peter J. Messitte, who is presiding over the “bounty” case former New York Giants linebacker Barrett Green launched against the Redskins, issued a 21-page ruling with this footnote on the first page: “Pro Football’s team is popularly known as the Washington ‘Redskins,’ but the Court

He said the government’s focus should be on securing the borders. “The first thing we need to do is secure the border. I do have empathy for these kids,” Branstad said. “But I also don’t want

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend.

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again.

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

The “ugly American” has gotten a lot uglier over the past few weeks, from the streets of California to the halls of Congress and state houses around the country. A growing number of our fellow Americans have taken on grotesque features, in looks and sounds, in reaction to the thousands of children from Central America who have crossed our borders as they flee poverty and violence in hope for something better. Sadly, the arrival of these youngsters has been greeted by flag-waving, sign-carrying, Bible-thumping and Constitution-quoting citizens demanding that they not be received here and that they be returned immediately to their

Those grievances range from (but are not limited to) Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the "targeting" of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza, illegal immigration, the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, the treatment of war veterans, the chaos in Iraq and deep reservations about President Obama.

Inquiring minds wonder if there’s a “G” in the grading repertoire. And that does not stand for “good.” Pollster John Zogby has given President Obama an “F” this week for the White House performance on the global stage, and the researcher has no imminent good news for the president. “Some people have really bad weeks. Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff got an ‘F’ after the nation’s soccer team lost to Germany. But President Obama’s week was just as bad,” Mr. Zogby says. “Israel and the Palestinians are at war again. The president should have visited the U.S.-Mexican border, where so many immigrant children are in danger and so many
