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.”

Sen. Josh Hawley Folds? Blames Trump for ‘Inflammatory, Irresponsible, Wrong’ Comments

Hawley is no leader.

Published

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has been criticized for leading the GOP’s electoral college objection amidst widespread allegations of voter fraud, and he has responded by throwing former President Donald Trump under the bus.

Hawley issued a statement to oppose the impeachment of Trump following the conclusion of his presidency, which is unprecedented and unlawful, in which he threw Trump under the bus and essentially blamed him for the violence in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

In the aftermath of the violence, many left-wing voices accused Hawley of sedition and treason for asking for an investigation into a laundry list of irregularities that have been widely ignored by authorities.

There have even been calls by Democrats to revoke the will of the people by ejecting Hawley from office in order to punish him for drawing attention to voter fraud, as Big League Politics has reported:

Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.

Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.

Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.

On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.

“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”

According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”

Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.

Hawley finally caved under the pressure, and he has shown he is not the man to take the reigns to lead the America First movement after Trump.
