Pro-Life Inauguration

After the election Carl Anderson, the head of the 2 million member Knights of Columbus, had this to say: though many of us were frustrated by the unusual political campaign and election, “this is precisely the time when Catholics need to step up and more fully exercise their responsibilities as citizens for the common good. It is time for more - not less- Catholic involvement in the life of our nation”!
Stay informed
Knights of Columbus
EWTN and their Newspaper,
the National Catholic Register, (try their free 6 issue Trial at no risk!)
Priests for Life
MCFL, and
Catholic Citizenship
This is precisely the time when we Catholics must step up and more fully exercise our responsibilities as citizens for the common good.

Planned Parenthood announced on Friday that they have closed their "feeder clinics" in Somerville and Milford. The whole point of PP's current business plan is to have satellite "clinics" feed into mega clinics which specialize in abortion (in this case Worcester and Boston). Explanations in the article don't really explain this great news.

American Pastor Andrew Brunson - a U.S. citizen - is in grave danger, having been arrested and imprisoned in Turkey on false charges of "membership in an armed terrorist organization." Even the charges admit no "evidence has[] been gathered" against him. He has served the people of Turkey - who he loves - for 23 years.
Turkey - America's NATO ally - has begun increased crackdowns on Christians. If convicted, Pastor Andrew could face years in prison based on extremely serious - and false - charges.
As his daughter Jacqueline pleaded, "The best Christmas present our family could receive this year is the release of my father."
Please Demand his immediate release, by signing the ACLJ Petition: Free American Pastor Andrew Brunson. Jay Sekulow, ACLJ Chief Counsel

PART II: PREPARATION FOR LOVE, Chapter 6: “Practical Suggestions on Temptation”, pp. 52-53
“The mind, however, plays one of its greatest roles when it counsels us against the near occasions of sin. More will be said about this when we discuss confession, but for now it is sufficient to remark that if we take care of the near occasions of sin, the sins will in great measure be taken care of too. Not only should we be content to avoiding dangerous situations, but we should surround ourselves with good ones insofar as it is practically possible: good companions for bad; good reading and entertainment for trash

“The secret of self-discipline, then, is normally not violent repulsion, but a firm, quiet, gentle disowning what is evil and embracing what is good. This leaves us in peace, in full possession of ourselves, and more open to the action of God’s grace. In God’s grace is our greatest help, and we can’t emphasize that enough. Some problems can be solved only by abandoning them to the action of God’s grace. While we see that we do not have to use means that are exclusively spiritual, still all of our techniques are only means which proceed from God’s grace and dispose us to make use of it.”
- Beginnings in Spiritual Life: Dominic Hoffman (Hat Tip Br. Paul)

In this CSpan video, Newt Gingrich explains why Donald Trump is a unique individual in American politics (no one has ever been elected President without first either having held elected office or having served in Military), then Newt goes on to explain ‘Trumpism’ and what it will mean from a Policy point of view in terms of jobs, building things, and how America is viewed in the world. Of course this will require work because all entrenched Leftist Progressives will relentlessly attack all Trumpism ideals and efforts.

09:40 Gingrich starts
14:30 why Trump debates so well, though ‘unschooled’ in debate technique
15:00 the “propaganda’ media cannot come to grips with the level of talent in Trump
16:00 Focus groups are social groups who talk themselves into believing the same thing, to explain why elites all missed Trump while voters got him
17:30 Country wanted someone to kick over the table, not experienced politicians, only Cruz could come close to this
19:40 every day Trump & Pence wake up, they remember they are not here to accommodate Washington, they are here to kick over the table
20:00 Media who missed everything Trump in election are now analyzing election – they are like the Sports reported who wrote about the home runs in a FootBall game, it’s time for a new reporter. But they get promoted because their Editors were wrong too.
21:00 Trump understood the Electoral College, He broke the code.
22:00 At end of election Trump went to Minneapolis, MN instead of Milwaukie, WI because if he went into WI Clinton might have responded in kind by defending herself there too. So the Clintonistas thought Trump was stupid to go to Minneapolis, as he had no way of winning that state. Trouble was Minneapolis Television feeds much of WI.
The inevitable next President with the $Billion machine totally blew this election because that level of corruption breeds incompetence.
26:00- Trumps ability to totally dominate the media…not simply the Main Stream Media
29:50-32:00 Trump as the Anti-John Galt (Ayn Rand’s hero in Atlas Shrugged)
44:45 Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State, has huge problems; he has successfully made money negotiating world wide deals with foreign governments, which scares the hell out of John Kerry, Hilary Clinton and the bulk of the State Department.
Many of the comments are very funny. As I’ve said before, this election was a choice between vulgarity and corruption.

God Bless America
