Pope Francis says that Fake News is a sin

I’m sorry, but this seems so orchestrated. I am no fan of the Pope. Mainly because it appears that his Marxism seems at times to supersede any resemblance of a religious leader. But that has been covered before. Pope Francis role during Argentina’s ‘Dirty War’ come back again?  — bunkerville 

Essentially, this drumbeat about fake news simply is the first step in justifying censorship. So while Progressives rale against the right and its authoritarian bent, it is the Progs who are taking it to a dangerous level.

I throw in as well the short version of Hillary telling us the danger of fake news. That is the joke of the day. Here we go:

Media that focus on scandals and spread fake news to smear politicians risk becoming like people who have a morbid fascination with excrement, Pope Francis said in an interview published on Wednesday.

Francis told the Belgian Catholic weekly Tertio that spreading disinformation was “probably the greatest damage that the media can do” and using communications for this rather than to educate the public amounted to a sin.

The Argentine-born pontiff excused himself for using such terms in order to get his point across while answering a question about the correct use of the media.

“I think the media have to be very clear, very transparent, and not fall into — no offense intended — the sickness of coprophilia, that is, always wanting to cover scandals, covering nasty things, even if they are true,” he said.

He also spoke of the danger of using the media to slander political rivals.

“The means of communication have their own temptations, they can be tempted by slander, and therefore used to slander people, to smear them, this above all in the world of politics,” he said. “They can be used as means of defamation…”

“No one has a right to do this. It is a sin and it is hurtful,” he said.

Here we have the ultimate purveyor of “Fake News.” But then again, what difference does it make?

Hillary Clinton said fake news is an “epidemic” and “a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly” while attending a portrait unveiling on Capitol Hill, in honor of retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.

Wes Clark Jr knees and apologizes to Native Americans over pipeline

Anything to separate and divide and make one feel diminished. Long after permits were given to complete the pipeline the Army Corp rescinds the permit on the altar of perceived P.C. I bet this has the Chinese shaking in their boots to learn how hard it is to get the military to back down. But let us not stop there. We have Wes Clark Jr and his band of bowers, kneeling and apologizing. What is it with this prostrating oneself? Here tis:

Wes Clark Jr., the son of retired U.S. Army general and former supreme commander at NATO Wesley Clark Sr., was part of a group of veterans at Standing Rock one day after the Army Corps announcement. The veterans joined Native American tribal elders in a ceremony celebrating the Dakota Access Pipeline easement denial.

 Lakota spiritual leader and medicine man Chief Leonard Crow Dog and Standing Rock Sioux spokeswoman Phyllis Young were among several Native elders who spoke, thanking the veterans for standing in solidarity during the protests.

Clark got into formation by rank, with his veterans, and knelt before the elders asking for their forgiveness for the long brutal history between the United States and Native Americans:

“Many of us, me particularly, are from the units that have hurt you over the many years. We came. We fought you. We took your land. We signed treaties that we broke. We stole minerals from your sacred hills. We blasted the faces of our presidents onto your sacred mountain. When we took still more land and then we took your children and then we tried to make your language and we tried to eliminate your language that God gave you, and the Creator gave you. We didn’t respect you, we polluted your Earth, we’ve hurt you in so many ways but we’ve come to say that we are sorry. We are at your service and we beg for your forgiveness.”

New York City has intentionally caused the traffic nightmare

This makes “Bridgegate” small potatoes in New Jersey. There has been the full throttle attempt to snarl traffic in New York City for years we now learn. If you had any thought that the Progressives were absolutely evil, this should be your confirmation. Back in 2010 we heard what Lahood with the Department of Transportation had in mind for us nationally. Bloomberg and deblasio no doubt got big bucks for New York City in turning the traffic into chaos. And they complain about Trump causing traffic problems?

Back in 2010 I wrote a post LaHood: “We are going to “Coerce” people out of their cars 

LaHood signed the new policy directive on March 11. “This is the end of favoring motorized transportation at the expense of non-motorized.”

On May 21, LaHood told reporters at the National Press Club that the “Partnership for Sustainable Communities’ his department had formed with the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Housing—sometimes known as the “livability initiative”–was designed to “coerce” people out of their cars.

Time for some traffic problems in Manhattan!

City officials have intentionally ground Midtown to a halt with the hidden purpose of making drivers so miserable that they leave their cars at home and turn to mass transit or bicycles, high-level sources told The Post.

Today’s gridlock is the result of an effort by the Bloomberg and de Blasio administrations over more than a decade of redesigning streets and ramping up police efforts, the sources said.

“The traffic is being engineered,” a former top NYPD official told The Post, explaining a long-term plan that began under Mayor Mike Bloomberg and hasn’t slowed with Mayor de Blasio.

“The city streets are being engineered to create traffic congestion, to slow traffic down, to favor bikers and pedestrians,” the former official said.

“There’s a reduction in capacity through the introduction of bike lanes and streets and lanes being closed down.”

The goal of the jammed traffic is to shift as many drivers as possible to public transit or bicycles.

Nancy Pelosi ‘American people don’t want a new direction’

We couldn’t pick better leadership for the Dems. They are toying with radical Muslim Ellison for heading up the party after the old war-horse Howard Dean decided to hang it up. We have Elizabeth Warren beating the war drums. Speaking of war horses, now Nancy was re-elected for the House leadership. Her ‘debut’ on Sunday of the new look was simply amazing. The prowess of her intellectual acumen almost matched “you have to see what’s in the bill to know what’s in it.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that despite Democrats losing the House, Senate, and almost two-thirds of state houses, the American people don’t want a new direction.

The California congressman appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday and instead said the issue facing Democrats is simply a failure of communication.

DICKERSON: “The Democratic Party is in a moment of questioning about its identity. You were reelected to lead the Democrats in the House. What do you tell Democrats who want a new direction and then, go to you, what are you going to do differently?”
PELOSI: “Well, I don’t think people want a new direction. Our values unify us and our values are about supporting America’s working families. That’s one that everyone is in agreement on. What we want is a better connection of our message to working families in our country, and that clearly in the election showed that that message wasn’t coming through. But we are united in terms of the security of our country, which is our first responsibility. To be smart and strong and not reckless in how we protect the American people, strong in how we protect our economy.”

Pelosi also downplayed her party’s losses in 2010 and 2016, telling CBS’s John Dickerson “You’re forgetting that we went up so high in 2006 and 2008.”

DICKERSON: “Here’s my question, though, Democrats since 2008, the numbers are ghastly for Democrats. Democrats are down 10 percent, in the House down 19.3 percent and in governors 35 percent. The Democrats are getting clobbered at every level over multiple elections. That seems like a real crisis for the party?”
PELOSI: “You’re forgetting that we went up so high in 2006 and 2008, and let me just put that in perspective. When President Clinton was elected, Republicans came in big in the next election. When President Bush was president, we came in big in the next election. When President Obama became president, the Republicans came in big in the next election.”

Sunday Respite – ‘Waiting in Silence’

Wishing everyone a great day. One of my favorite pieces for Advent.

1. Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
we are your people, we long for you, Lord.
God ever with us, Emmanuel,
Come, Lord Jesus, Maranatha!

2. Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
we are your people, we trust in your love.
O Sun of Justice, true Prince of Peace,
Come with your justice, Lord, Maranatha!

3. Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
we are your people, Lord, we seek your truth.
Wisdom Incarnate, teach us your way;
Show us the path of life, Maranatha!

4. Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
we are your people, we long for new life.
O Key of David, open our hearts.
Give us new vision, Lord, Maranatha!

5. Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
we are your people, our hearts thirst for you.
Flower of Jesse, bloom in our midst.
Make us your garden, Lord, Maranatha!

NY Time’s David Carr: “Middle Places” Home Of “Low-Sloping Foreheads”

Tucker Carlson interviewed the NY Times Public Editor on the biased Trump stories last night. It was a good interview, and I include it here. A number of the Time’s reporters were covered including their tweets. One reporter that came to mind was Time’s reporter, David Carr. As I write this post today, as a deplorable, irredeemable, who clings to God and Guns, complete with a low forehead from Middle Earth according to David Carr, I went back to my way back post.

What liberal elites really think of the average America  

”If it’s Kansas, if it’s Missouri, no big deal. You know, that’s the dance of the low-sloping foreheads. The middle places, right? [pause] Did I just say that aloud?”

The liberal elitists who used their control of the media establishment to install Barack Hussein Obama in power. pride themselves on being too full of nuance to express coherent opinions. Yet when it comes to their attitudes toward normal Americans, they speak plainly enough. Here columnist David Carr of the odious New York Times sums up the ruling class’s attitude toward the denizens of Flyover Country.

Writer’s comment 12/2/16: We showed them, didn’t we? We got the House, Senate, President. They are not laughing now are they?
