Catholic Bishops Scheme Against Trump

Published

on

At a meeting of Catholic Bishops in Fort Lauderdale, FL several high ranking members of the Clergy called for a complete overhaul of the Church’s guiding document for voters.

According to Newsmax, the Bishops spent a good deal of time chastising Trump for pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord, while spending zero time standing in solidarity with the President on the issue of abortion. Trump has been the most pro-life President in the abortion era.

Nor did the Bishops discuss the escalation of  conflict in the Korean Peninsula. Surely that falls under the voter’s guide section title “Promoting Peace.”

“Catholics must also work to avoid war and to promote peace,” the document says. This is of particular importance, as there is a danger in the present time of becoming indifferent to war because of the number of armed conflicts. War is never a reflection of what ought to be but a sign that something more true to human dignity has failed. The Catholic tradition recognizes the legitimacy of just war teaching when defending the innocent in the face of grave evil, but we must never lose sight of the cost of war and its harm to human life.”

Trump has shown anything but indifference to the threat of war with North Korea.

But according to Cardinal Blase J. Cupich of Chicago, the present document does not represent “the new body of teaching” as taught by the present Pope, specifically in regards to issues like climate change, poverty, and immigration.

The document, last updated in 2015, details traditional views on issues like marriage, abortion, and religious liberty. Some of the Clergy, Cupich included, are pushing for a complete re-write.

The voting guide is what one would expect from a church, very conservative.

Here is a passage:

“Abortion and euthanasia have become preeminent threats to human life and dignity because they directly attack life itself, the most fundamental good and the condition for all others. Abortion, the deliberate killing of a human being before birth, is never morally acceptable and must always be opposed.”

Passage Ends

Bishop Roger McElroy of San Diego said that the document does not represent “Catholic teaching as it is now,” alluding to the increasing liberalization of the church.

Newsmax fears that the Catholic Church moving any further to the left will alienate the Bishops from their flock, making them “just another cadre of grumpy Never-Trumpers.”

President Donald Trump Urges House Republicans to Vote Against Re-Authorizing FISA Secret Courts

Trump has learned the right lesson from the Russian collusion madness.

President Donald Trump is pushing back against the deep state by urging House Republicans to reject the re-authorization of the FISA secret court system.

He made the announcement in a tweet issued on Tuesday evening.

The Russian collusion investigation was made possible due to the FISA secret courts, which essentially rubber-stamped all kinds of illicit spying on the President and his associates.

The FISA court threw the FBI under the bus in the aftermath of the Russia-gate farce that exposed the treachery of the federal government:

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court issued a sharp rebuke of the FBI on Tuesday, accusing them of “so many basic and fundamental errors” in filing the surveillance application for former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

“The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the OIG report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above,” Rosemary Collyer, presiding judge with the FISC, wrote in an order to the FBI released by the court…

Inspector General Michael Horowitz detailed a comedy of errors from an FBI that has proven itself to be ridiculously incompetent or malicious in its attempts to pin Russian collusion on President Trump and his close associates.

Collyer said that the report has presented “troubling instances in which FBI personnel provided information to NSD [the National Security Division of the Justice Department] which was unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession.”

“The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable,” Collyer wrote.

“The FISC expects the government to provide complete and accurate information in every filing with the Court. Without it, the FISC cannot properly ensure that the government conducts electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes only when there is a sufficient factual basis,” she added.

President Trump has come out against FISA after many talks with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who has been leading the charge against the unconstitutional secret court system since long before Russia-gate.

“It flies in the face of our Constitution that a secret court can authorize invading an innocent American’s privacy. Recent months have once again made all too clear how such a system leads to abuse. It’s time for Congress to stop paying lip service to reform and pass real safeguards that respect Americans’ rights. What happened to General Flynn and President Trump should never be allowed to happen again,” Paul said earlier this year.

The House is expected to vote on FISA re-authorization Wednesday morning. President Trump hopes that his words can influence Republicans into doing the right thing and pushing back against an intelligence community that has clearly run amok.
