Shock Claim: Churches Ask Parishioners
To Shelter Illegals, Not Tell The Media

Independent Journal Review, by Mike Miller

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/9/2014 11:19:57 AM

Churches in California have reportedly asked their parishioners to shelter illegal aliens in their homes – and not to tell the media. A retired doctor and his wife spoke to Rush Limbaugh Tuesday about the disturbing request. “Ann” and “Eddie,” who live in Southern California, told Limbaugh that the Diocese of San Bernardino made the decision to house illegals after the bishop received a call from the federal government: Ann: We live in Southern California, and we’re Catholic…and there was a town hall meeting last evening, emergency meeting called by our local parish priest, ordered by our bishop. They have

While we cannot confirm the claims of Ann and Eddie,...

Why not? It´s easy enough to call the diocesan offices and ask.

Not only are citizens being ´asked´ to take in these ill children and criminals but they can´t talk about it. Why? The cover up, as usual, will be worse than the action. Americans should not be told to accept the burdens that the rest of the world will not. Our country is sinking faster than the sleeping electorate realizes.

As an ex-Catholic, I have often considered going back. The Church has been a stalwart in defense of life and the traditional family. The insistence of Church officials in harboring illegals, however, is a major factor in my not doing so.

when I read the interview last night, my first thought was re the nanny story in CA. Remember? The lady who refused to leave and the police who said they couldn´t help because it was a "civil issue"???

So, if these families are told it will be 30 days and it extends to 60 or 90 days - or maybe beyond, will there come a point where they cannot legally impel the "children" to leave??

And, can they request REAL children - or will some get stuck with faux children who are covered with gang ink? What happens in mid August when school starts - will the families be compelled to register the children in local schools? What about medical needs?

This isn´t the same as taking in a stray puppy or working with a shelter to temporarily home pets. This is a serious issue with serious implications long term...

#3 I hope you´ll not let this impact your consideration too much, the Church is still a good place. I too disagree with the actions of this diocese. Sometimes I want to throw my hands up in the air and scream "what are you doing, why aren´t you listening to parishioners like me, conservatives who go to mass!?" I have to remind myself that I can´t force the Catholic Church to fit neatly into a political box, especially an American one.

Don´t get me wrong, I know the Church is political. But sometimes it helps to step away from the American political system and look at the Church from a purely universal Catholic prespective. I´m forcing myself to do that these days. I´m not giving up my conservative convictions, far from it. But the world seems to be going absolutely crazy and the Church can provide a stability that our political system cannot. I´m starting to find that the view through Catholic glasses looks kind of like the view of America I used to love so much.

All that being said, this is not a good situation and the bishop appears to have been very shortsighted in making this request of people.

Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked neurosurgeon and GOP novelty Ben Carson, who is very vocally teasing a presidential run, if his inexperience disqualified him from the office, especially given the results of Obama’s alleged inexperience. “After looking at Barack Obama and what’s happened with his lack of political experience over the last six years, wouldn’t putting Ben Carson in the Oval Office be akin to putting a politician in an operating room and having him perform one of your brain surgeries?” Wallace asked. Shockingly, Carson said no. “I think what is required for leadership is wisdom and the

A Georgia high school football team’s tradition of touching a stone statue on their way out of the fieldhouse is drawing the ire of two groups that are demanding the statue be removed. According to MyFoxAtlanta.com, the granite statue at the center of the controversy at Madison County High School in Danielsville has ignited the furor of atheist and humanist groups who say the monument’s biblical inscriptions violate the Constitution. The Freedom from Religion Foundation and the American Humanist Association have written separate letters to the school district, calling the statue "unconstitutional" -- saying it violates the

Fifteen people, mostly teenagers, were shot early Sunday morning at a Miami nightclub, Miami police reported. Police spokeswoman Frederica Burden said the shooting happened about 1 a.m. The victims range in age from 11 to 25, and one person was critically injured, she said. "At this point, we are not sure if we have one shooter or multiple shooters," she said. CNN affiliate WPLG said the shooting happened at The Spot nightclub at Northwest 64th Street at Seventh Avenue. A large party was being held when shooting broke out. Witnesses told police they heard about 100 gunshots, WPLG reported.

For Obama, a swift leap from
no strategy to a full battle plan
for Islamic State
Washington Post, by Karen DeYoung    Original Article

After keeping his promise to avoid American involvement in extended wars for nearly six years, President Obama on Monday began a military engagement that he acknowledged is likely to far outlive his time in office. The launch of airstrikes in Syria and expanded U.S. action in Iraq, at the head of a dozens-strong coalition of nations, is by far the biggest commitment of U.S. might Obama has made, far beyond 2011’s limited air action in Libya or the operation that killed Osama bin Laden. Yet his decision seemed all but inevitable as Islamic State militants publicly executed U.S. hostages and

Who Had It Easier, Reagan or Obama?

Over the past few weeks I’ve been reading Ken Adelman’s fascinating history “Reagan at Reykjavik: Forty-Eight Hours That Ended the Cold War.” Adelman, who led Reagan’s arms control agency, was an adviser at Reagan’s 1986 Iceland summit meeting with Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev. Using some newly declassified documents, Adelman fills out the extraordinary dialogue between the two leaders that set in motion a dramatic cut in nuclear arms. You learn a lot about Reagan’s leadership in the book. For me, the most impressive thing was not Reagan’s attachment to his “Star Wars” strategic defense initiative, which is overrated in ending

Officials say a group of pro-Palestinian protesters are again blocking an Israeli-owned ship from unloading its cargo at a port in California. International Longshore and Warehouse Union spokesman Craig Merrilees says dockworkers at the Port of Oakland did not unload cargo from the ZIM Shanghai on Saturday because of safety concerns raised by the presence of police and protesters. (Snip) Last month, protesters blocked cargo from unloading off the ZIM Piraeus for nearly five days before the ship apparently departed to Los Angeles with a partial load. An email message to a ZIM representative has not been returned.

The midterm election may be weeks away, but tens of thousands of ballots have already been cast in a reprise of an increasingly powerful political tool: early voting. In North Carolina, which has a pivotal U.S. Senate contest at the top of the ticket, voting began Sept. 5 when absentee ballots were mailed to voters. As of Friday about 15,000 voters — the majority of them Democrats — had requested ballots ahead of Nov. 4. On Thursday, Iowans, who will choose between Democratic U.S. Rep.

Finding a doctor who takes Obamacare coverage could be just as frustrating for Californians in 2015 as the health-law expansion enters its second year. The state´s largest health insurers are sticking with their often-criticized narrow networks of doctors, and in some cases they are cutting the number of physicians even more, according to a Times analysis of company data. And the state´s insurance exchange, Covered California, still has no comprehensive directory to help consumers match doctors with health plans. This comes as insurers prepare to enroll hundreds of thousands of new patients this fall and get 1.2 million Californians to

Arkansas Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Tom Cotton released a new radio ad Thursday, highlighting what his campaign says is his more positive message than incumbent Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR). Cotton narrates the ad, called “I Believe,” offering details about his life and beliefs. "For months now, Senator Pryor´s message has grown increasingly angry, more desperate and out-of-touch as he sees his re-election chances dissipate,” Cotton spokesman David Ray said. “Tom Cotton has a positive, conservative vision to share with Arkansans. After more than a decade in Washington, Senator Pryor has simply lost his way.”

President Barack Obama on Saturday said the widespread mistrust of law enforcement that was exposed by the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man in Ferguson, Missouri, is corroding America, not just its black communities, and that the wariness flows from significant racial disparities in the administration of justice. Speaking at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation´s annual awards dinner, Obama said these suspicions only harm communities that need law enforcement the most. "It makes folks who are victimized by crime and need strong policing reluctant to go to the police because they may not trust them," he said. "And

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Although 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue may be the most famous address in the country, that doesn’t mean everyone remembers it. At the Value Voters Summit today in Washington, D.C, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, mistakenly referred to the White House as being located at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” “Don’t retreat. You reload with truth, which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue, anyway truth,” Palin said. “The media’s favorite president. He just can’t stop telling lies.” It doesn’t appear that a 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue NW actually exists–but the closest

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name.

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory. The 2014 election is rapidly looking like something new

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”
