Obamacare: The Foot in the Door for Communism

Soon the Supreme Court will hand down its decision on the constitutionality of Obamacare. Their decision is crucial for our future as a Republic as well as for the next election, which might be our last chance to roll back Obamacare and the rest of the “fundamental transformation of America” that Obama wants.

Obamacare is designed to funnel everyone into one system, where unelected bureaucrats will decide what kind of care you get.

And what kind of care you can’t and won’t get.

The Obama administration designed Obamacare to destroy alternative systems, such as those set up by the Catholic Church.

Not only do progressives under Obama want total control of the health care system, these totalitarians also want total control of all social services, which is why they also seek to drive the Catholic Church out of the adoption/foster care system.

In Illinois, the state government severed contracts with the Catholic Church to provide foster care services after a disagreement over same-sex couples. The State, in effect, violated the Church’s right to religious freedom. As a result of the heavy hand of government, the children suffer:

“[T]he State of Illinois has made it financially impossible for our agencies to continue to provide these services,” reads a joint statement … by Belleville Bishop Edward K. Braxton, and other Illinois bishops involved in the case. …

“Since we now need to close offices and lay off employees, further appeals [of the State’s decision] would be moot.” …

“The Catholic Church has successfully partnered with the State for half a century in providing foster care and adoption services. While the State has forced the Catholic Church out of state-supported foster care and adoption services, the losers will be the children, foster care families and adoptive parents who will no longer have the option of Catholic, faith-based services.”

Mission accomplished!

In the same way, the Obama administration seeks to consolidate the health care system under total government control. Their “health care” system won’t work in their intended way unless everyone is within it, with no alternative. No way out.

Another Illinois bishop, Daniel R. Jenky of the Diocese of Peoria, sees through the plan, which uses issues like gay marriage, abortion, and contraception against Catholics, in order to force them out of providing health care, foster care, and adoption services. He gets it. Says Jenky,

Hitler and Stalin, at their better moments, would just barely tolerate some churches remaining open, but would not tolerate any competition with the state in education, social services, and health care. In clear violation of our First Amendment rights, Barack Obama – with his radical, pro abortion and extreme secularist agenda, now seems intent on following a similar path.

What’s next, the Catholic schools? Give them time; surely there’s a plan in the works to close down private schools, too. (That includes Lutheran, Baptist, Mormon, and Jewish schools, as well as every other.)  All the better to indoctrinate every child–to ensure that each grows up to be a good little creature of the state.

This quest for total control explains the “individual mandate” and it also explains why they cannot allow charitable persons the freedom (unless they’re Muslim) to use their own money to give care to others that the communist bureaucrats have already decided they do not deserve.

In the progressive mind, money does not belong to the charitable ones. The charitable ones do not know how best to spend their own money. They might use it to benefit those who the communists in Obama’s administration believe are undeserving, such as the elderly.

In the progressive mind, all money belongs to the State. The State, led by unelected bureaucrats, will decide who lives and who dies. Once the unelected deciders on the death panels have decided, you will NOT be able to get the care you want, no matter what.

That’s the entire point of their system: Total control, so some can’t use “unfair” means to get “unfair” outcomes, just because they’re “lucky” enough to have more money than others. Or smart enough to seek care at a Catholic hospital.

What chaos would ensue if the elderly could receive care at Catholic hospitals once they had already been denied care by Obama’s minions. Then every elderly person would demand similar care! Then We the People might decide that we don’t want totalitarianism, after all. And that will not do.

It’s required that everyone under communism must be equally miserable. Except for the top dogs!  They shall, deservedly, live like kings.

Make no mistake, communism is part and parcel of Obama’s planned “fundamental transformation” of our country.

Even today, retirees who receive Social Security benefits must by law be in the Medicare system. No opting out. Under Obamacare, there will be no opting out, either. Once the bureaucrats have decided, then it’s:

No mammograms for you! No PSA tests for you! No colonoscopies for you!

You will have nowhere to go, except, perhaps …

Ascension Health Alliance, the nation’s largest Catholic health system, has entered into a joint venture to build a $2 billion medical complex in the Cayman Islands.

The health care facilities could become a geographically advantageous site for medical tourism — offering a low-cost alternative for patients seeking special treatments and procedures, hospital care and rehabilitation in a tropical setting.

In recent years, a growing number of U.S. patients have traveled to Korea, Thailand, India and many other far-flung nations to receive medical care at discounted rates.

The Edmundson-based Ascension Health Alliance is teaming up with Narayana Hrudayalaya Hospitals of India “to bring innovative healthcare services” to the Caribbean and the Americas, the two companies announced today.

Narayana’s chairman and managing director, Dr. Devi Prasad Shetty, is a cardiovascular surgeon who has a reputation of providing low-cost health care at medical facilities in India.

“Ascension Health has been working with Dr. Shetty for two years to explore ways to adapt his success at providing high-quality healthcare at low cost,” Anthony Tersigni, president and chief executive Officer of Ascension Health Alliance, said in a written statement. “Together, we are committed to bring first-rate healthcare provided in a world-class setting.”

The huge project — which the partners call a “health city” — is scheduled to break ground in August on a 200-acre site in Grand Cayman, the largest of the three islands comprising the Cayman Islands.

Grand Cayman is best known as an offshore banking haven for U.S. companies including hedge funds as well as wealthy Americans seeking tax shelters.

[T]he multi-specialty hospital will provide services including open-heart/bypass surgery, angioplasty, heart-valve replacement, cancer treatment, bone-marrow transplant, nuclear medicine, organ transplant and orthopedics.

The hospital will seek accreditation by Joint Commission International, the international arm of The Joint Commission, which accredits U.S. hospitals. …

The partners say that the health care project will create thousands of jobs on Grand Cayman, diversify the island’s economy, provide ongoing research and education opportunities, contribute to the health of the citizenry, and bring new industry to the country.

So instead of creating and saving jobs in the United States, by forcing the Catholic Church out of health care, Obamacare is destroying jobs here and creating them in Grand Cayman! All the benefits to the local economies will be lost in America and will go overseas, where the Catholic Church will continue its ministry. The loss will be ours.

Americans will be able to take advantage of these health cities, until Obama finds a way to prevent Americans from flying there to get the care that Obamacare demands that they not receive. Wait for it! It’s coming. It will simply not be “fair” that some who are denied care here might have the resources to pay for care in another country, so they will find a way to stop them. Whether it be through a special tax or simply by making it a crime, they will at least try to find a way to stop them.

Such health cities in India are already a medical tourist destination for certain UK citizens who, under their own autocratic national health system, are prevented from receiving drugs and surgeries that may save or extend their lives. Older people find themselves rationed out of cancer therapies or organ transplants, simply because their lives are determined to be worth less than the lives of younger people. The lives of the elderly are not worth as much to the entire “community”, so the community will not expend resources on them.

That’s communism, folks.

And so the hierarchy of the Catholic Church is opposing the mandates in Obamacare. Some Catholics rally to support the Church; but others do not, says Jenn Giroux, the former Executive Director of Human Life International America:

There are many liberal Catholics and Obama supporters who are trying to divide and confuse the faithful on the issues surrounding this attack on religious liberty and the impending mandatory requirement for employers to provide insurance plans which provide free contraception, abortion-inducing drugs, and sterilization. … Still others that oppose the mandate are advocating that the issue of contraception should be separated from the discussion of religious liberty all together. The reality is that these issues are quite inseparable as it relates to the practice of Catholicism and the moral burden that is placed upon the conscience of employers who provide contraceptive services. Only those who understand the grave moral evil of contraception and abortion understand that the Catholic Church will never compromise on these issues because to do so would lead to eternal ramifications for those involved.

Last month, the bishops warned that they would resist totalitarianism in a letter to the faithful in which they made clear

that the free exercise of religion is being defined down to a bare “freedom of worship.” That is, religious people are allowed to think and pray as they want in their homes and churches, but they cannot follow the dictates of their conscience when they provide services to the public.

Chicago’s Archbishop George understands Obama’s goals:

“What will happen if the HHS regulations are not rescinded? A Catholic institution, so far as I can see right now, will have one of four choices: 1) secularize itself, breaking its connection to the church, her moral and social teachings and the oversight of its ministry by the local bishop. This is a form of theft. It means the church will not be permitted to have an institutional voice in public life. 2) Pay exorbitant annual fines to avoid paying for insurance policies that cover abortifacient drugs, artificial contraception and sterilization. This is not economically sustainable. 3) Sell the institution to a non-Catholic group or to a local government. 4) Close down.”

George has been warning of the state’s intrusion into religious affairs for a long time. In 2010 he predicted, “I expect to die in bed. My successor will die in prison, and his successor will die a martyr in the public square.” …

“Liberty of religion is more than freedom of worship. Freedom of worship was guaranteed in the Constitution of the former Soviet Union. You could go to church, if you could find one. The church, however, could do nothing except conduct religious rites in places of worship–no schools, religious publications, health care institutions, organized charity, ministry for justice and the works of mercy that flow naturally from a living faith. All of these were co-opted by the government. We fought a long cold war to defeat that vision of society.”

Now, the bishops have made good on their threat to fight totalitarianism:   43 Catholic organizations have sued the Obama administration:

The lawsuits argue that a federal mandate issued by the Obama administration violates their fundamental religious liberty. The controversial mandate will require employers to offer health insurance plans that cover contraception, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs, even if doing so violates their consciences.

The mandate has drawn heavy criticism from bishops in every diocese in the U.S. They warned that the regulation could force Catholic schools, hospitals and charitable agencies around the nation to close down.

At least 11 previous lawsuits have already been filed against the mandate by states, colleges, private employers and organizations throughout the U.S.

Now, 12 new lawsuits are being filed by 43 dioceses, hospitals, schools and church agencies in a dozen different jurisdictions across the country.

The Archdioceses of New York, St. Louis and Washington, D.C, are part of separate lawsuits against the measure, as are Catholic Charities organizations in several dioceses and the Catholic publishing group Our Sunday Visitor. Other dioceses filing lawsuits include, Rockville Centre, Pittsburgh, Dallas, Fort Worth, Jackson, Biloxi, Fort Wayne-South Bend, Joliet, and Springfield, Ill. — all in their respective districts of federal court.

Several Catholic universities around the country also joined in the lawsuits, including The Catholic University of America, the University of Notre Dame and Franciscan University of Steubenville.

Notre Dame president Fr. John Jenkins, C.S.C., said the lawsuit was filed “neither lightly nor gladly, but with sober determination.”

“We do not seek to impose our religious beliefs on others,” he explained in an email to Notre Dame employees.

Rather, he explained, “we simply ask that the Government not impose its values on the University when those values conflict with our religious teachings.”

According to Fr. Jenkins, the lawsuit is about “the freedom of a religious organization to live its mission, and its significance goes well beyond any debate about contraceptives.”

He cautioned that when the government decides “which religious organizations are sufficiently religious to be awarded the freedom to follow the principles that define their mission,” the nation has started down a path that could lead to “the end of genuinely religious organizations in all but name.”

This is a brave stand! Surely the Supreme Court will take notice of these many lawsuits.

We’ll find out soon, when the ruling comes down. In the meantime, let us pray.

  1. Well done Miri. Thanks for putting all of the information together so it is so easily understood. Frightening to think about it in the way it was presented. Our country is either going to go Right or continue to the left and our nation’s destruction.

    Surely the Supreme Court will save us from the policies that are described above. I pray we survive the onslaught that is coming down the pike because of this Obama regime. Everything about them has turned our nation upside down. They are an example of history repeating itself with the most vile creatures dictating to the people. When the voters chose Obama they were ignorant fools. All those that believed this administration would be held in check were wrong. Checks and balances were breached the first day Obama was sworn into office. Justice Roberts swore him in, will he now be the one that saves us from the Communist plans?

    Praying that the Catholics and other faiths will now sway their parishioners from voting for the DemoncRatic Party. May they now see with open eyes they are dealing with the party that wants to destroy everything they hold dear. Open their eyes so that they may see!

    • Other faiths have already come out in support of the Catholic lawsuits and, iirc, a Lutheran agency is suing, too.

      I wrote this mainly to highlight the two bishops who SEE EXACTLY WHAT OBAMA IS DOING. Let’s not forget that the late blessed Pope John Paul II was a warrior AGAINST COMMUNISM IN POLAND. He and Ronald Reagan, a great tag team, defeated the Soviets and brought down the Berlin Wall (with help from all the brave people in Europe who fought alongside them. Lech Walesa KNOWS what Obama is doing. The Polish people know. Anybody who LIVED under communism, like Orly Taitz, knows.)

      I was AMAZED when I read that little-publicized quote where the bishop pointed out that Barry is following HITLER AND STALIN in his sneaky policies that are DELIBERATELY shoving the Christian churches (and likely every other faith) OUT OF THE SOCIAL SERVICE REALM, INCLUDING EDUCATION, HEALTH CARE, AND FOSTER CARE/ADOPTION. Basically, they want to GUT the ability of all these private, religious entities to engage in ANY ACTIVITY other than religious services.

      Of course, as I pointed out, MUSLIMS will not be held to this standard. Obamacare has exceptions for them, as far as the mandate goes. Their “charitable” activities will likely NOT be curtailed. Remember, much of the money that funds jihad and terror is collected under the guise of “charity.” In the same way, their BANKING (or non-banking) system will not be subject to the same regulations as others are.

      My biggest point is that this is NOT simply an attempt to be diverse and tolerant and provide “health care” to gays and women.

      Obama’s minions USE THESE ISSUES AS THE EXCUSE WHEN THE REAL AGENDA IS TO TAKE OVER, MONOPOLIZE, EVERY FACET OF OUR LIVES AND TO SHOVE OUT ANY PRIVATE ORGANIZATION THAT FORMERLY, FREELY, CONSTITUTIONALLY FULFILLED THAT ROLE. WHY? TO MAKE EVERYONE DEPENDENT UPON AND SUBJECT TO OBAMA’S REGIME. TYRANNY. THAT’S WHY. TOTALITARIANISM.

  2. WSI at Ulsterman said John Roberts is working on a 6/3 (as apposed to a 5/4 split) decission against Obamacare. I hope he’s right. Thanks Miri for the great info.

    • You’re welcome. I hope it’s true that Roberts is working on a 6/3 decision, except I read one obot lamestream article that said the same thing. The catch being that they think it will go in FAVOR of Obamacare. If it’s a split decision in favor, it will stir up the conservative base and they want to tamp that down so the NWO goes ahead, full steam.

      Roberts KNOWS whatever there is to know about the illegitimate potus. He’s the one who was complicit in the repeat swearing in ceremony. He knows what Barry’s real legal name is, possibly. Or he knows what Barry’s real religion is, so that’s why he perhaps swore on a Koran. Or he knows who Barry really is but if he is a NBC, then he ran and was elected under a fraudulent identity and Roberts acceded to THAT, too. I don’t know who we can trust.

      I HOPE that Roberts is a patriot and realizes that that law is unconstitutional. I hope he’s persuasive enough, if he so believes it. This is truly serious. Obama must be defeated in November. Our Republic will not stand after another 4 years and especially if, as seems likely, the next president gets to appoint at least one judge to the SCOTUS. One more progressive and we’re finished. America, as we know it, will be TRANSFORMED fundamentally. And there will be no going back.

  3. Leave it to me to write one of my long boring posts on a day when two things break that people love to talk about: Barry’s ineligibility AND new photos that have been photoshopped by the obots. 😦

    Anyway, this is tangentially related because it touches upon WHY the Church is in opposition to Barry, among other things: Abortion. A NEW LOW since 1995 in polls for people calling themselves pro-choice. Only 41% today. A MINORITY. Even DemoncRATS are down to 58% from a high of 68% just last year.

  4. A blogger posted this at Free Republic…

    “Here’s what Bennett originally asked for:

    Enclosed please find a request for a verification in lieu of a certified copy for the birth record of Barack Hussein Obama II. In addition to the items to be verified in the attached form, please verify the following items from the record of birth:

    Department of Health File #151 61 10641
    Time of birth: 7:24 p.m.
    Name of hospital: Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital
    Age of father: 25
    Birthplace of Father: Kenya, East Africa
    Age of mother: 18
    Birthplace of mother: Wichita, Kansas
    Date of signature of parent: 8-7-1961
    Date of signature of attendant: 8-8-1961
    Date accepted by local registrar: August-8 1961

    Additionally, please verify that the attached copy of the Certificate of Live Birth for Mr. Obama is a true and accurate representation of the original record in your files.

    Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

    And here’s what he got:

    Regarding the inquiry from the Arizona Secretary of State, Ken Bennett, requesting a verification of birth for President Obama from the State of Hawaii, Department of Health, the matter has been resolved. We have received information from Secretary Bennett that satisfied our requirements, and have therefore provided his office with a verification of birth for President Obama.”
    __________________________

    Can anyone here verify that this is the actual request by Bennett, as well as the response from HDOH?

    • I saw that, too, and I wondered where the person got it. I read that whole thread and nobody asked her! Someone else seemed to indicate that it was perhaps invented? She posted the same comment on both FR threads about the issue. You’d think someone would ask her for her source, but whenever someone is engaging in parody, I notice that the freepers aren’t kind to those who don’t “get it.” So maybe that’s why nobody asks.

    • Thanks Kathy, Very helpful.

    • Another thing full of disinformation and outright lies. For example, name a Hawaiian that issued a SWORN AFFIDAVIT about Barry’s bc. NONE. If only. They won’t because they dare not. This “talking points memo” site is surely appropriately named. Let’s guess it’s an obot site? They repeat the meme that Hawaii has been buried with vexatious requests. Wow. If even true, look how quick Hawaii responded to the “public record request” that site placed on MONDAY! Already, they claim, they got the emails. Unless, of course, the response came from AZ, which might explain transparency and speed in replying to citizen requests. And of course they also repeat the lie that he released his LFCOLB already. NOT!

      Two weeks later, Nagamine pretends to not have known about his detailed request including the DATA ITEMS to be verified.

      Oh, ho, ho. Check out what Bennett wrote to a Tea Partier:

      “First, we have revised the nomination forms and informed the parties that we will not include a Presidential or VP candidate on the ballot unless the candidates personally swear to meeting the itemized qualifications required in the Constitution. (In 2008, the Democrat nomination form simply said that their candidates had been “nominated” at the Party Convention)”

      This is for the presidential election. NOT the primary. After Barry’s nominated, then HE PERSONALLY must swear that he meets EACH qualification listed in the Constitution.

  5. From LF’s place: http://www.azcentral.com/12news/Obama-Verification.pdf

    And this is supposed to mean exactly what? Doesn’t prove anything with those lying suckers.

  6. The Heavens Will Not Fall If Obamacare Does
    By Stephen Presser
    May 23, 2012

    As we come closer to finding out the Supreme Court’s disposition of the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (the PPACA), and, in particular, its individual mandate (which requires virtually all adult Americans to purchase health insurance or pay a penalty), there is an increasingly anguished lament coming from the left of the punditocracy and the political class.

    There is palpable fear that the Court will (as it should, in my opinion), declare the individual mandate unconstitutional, and thereby undo the signature achievement of President Obama’s administration.

    Perhaps, most notable is the New Republic’s distinguished court commentator, Jeffrey Rosen, who recently declared that if the Court throws out the individual mandate, it is likely to presage the return of “a series of legal doctrines that have been dormant since the New Deal but which judges could use to dismantle the post–New Deal regulatory state, including economic regulations, health and safety laws, and environmental laws.”
    ~
    In the face of this disappointing attempt to intimidate the Court, and, in particular, its Chief Justice John Roberts and its perpetual swing voter Anthony Kennedy, it will take some courage for the Court to do what is Constitutionally correct, and we can only hope that courage is forthcoming.

    The individual mandate of the PPACA is the boldest attempt yet to dramatically expand the reach of Congressional power. And, simply stated, no one has been able to explain how, if the Congress can do this, any limits remain on its power. The Government attorneys defending the PPACA at the recent Supreme Court arguments were not able to limn [sic. claim] any such remaining limits, and this is because there are none.

    http://cnsnews.com/blog/stephen-presser/heavens-will-not-fall-if-obamacare-does

    • The actions by the U.S. Catholic bishops and the rest of those religious organizations that are in a COORDINATED FASHION (that was confirmed in the reports) have inundated the federal courts with lawsuits over the mandates OUGHT TO HELP THEM GET SOME COURAGE. It sure will make it a lot harder for them to LET the UNCONSTITUTIONAL, TYRANNICAL, TOTALITARIAN MANDATES STAND.

  7. The Bishops are Being Played. Like Cheap Fiddles.
    Ann Barnhardt – May 23, 2012

    I do not understand how it is that this isn’t glaringly, beat-you-over-the-head obvious, but whatever. I’ll explain it. Listen up. Especially if you have a hat shaped like the blade of a posthole digger in your wardrobe, and people actually call you “Excellency.”

    Withdrawing health insurance (like Franciscan University at Steubenville, Ohio), shutting down schools, closing adoption agencies, soup kitchens or ANYTHING ELSE in “protest” of ObamaCare and the HHS “mandates” is EXACTLY, PRECISELY, TOTALLY and COMPLETELY what the Obama regime wants.

    Further, the reason why the “press” has OBVIOUSLY been given the order to keep all of this quiet and to not report in any way on the lawsuits filed by the dozens of various Catholic organizations this week against the Obama regime – the largest religious legal action ever taken against the U.S. government by a long shot – is obvious.

    The Obama regime is sitting back and watching all of you cowardly fools fold your own tents. None of the stupid bread-and-circus addicted crowd knows anything about any of this. You have to break out of your narcissistic little world and understand that even though these things are earth-shattering to you, uh, most people in this country don’t even know that their “government” has declared war on the Church.

    So, in a few months, after you all have played right into their hands and shut down your facilities, hospitals, schools and services, congratulating yourselves on your “brave protest”, the Obama regime is going to make a ginormous propaganda offensive telling all of the stupid TV-addled idiots that the Catholic Church doesn’t give a crap about “the people” because they have shut down their hospitals, schools, their soup kitchens, their adoption agencies and won’t even provide health insurance plans to the poor, poor youths attending their universities. The Catholic Church hates “the people”, hates charity, hates sick people, hates women, hates children, hates poor people and is hoarding all of its money.

    Oh, but the Obama regime LOVES you. The Obama regime will provide you and anyone else who joins their Free Shit Army with all of the “free healthcare”, “free education”, “free food” and free unicorn farts they could ever want or need.

    Listen, you fools. YOU DON’T SHUT ANYTHING DOWN. You keep going exactly as you have been, and you force those dirty rotten SOBs to literally storm your hospitals and shut YOU down at gunpoint. And I’m not kidding. Make them physically shut down your hospital by dragging you out at gunpoint. Make them physically shut down your schools. Make them shut down your university by force because you won’t cover abortions in your student health plan. Make them physically shut down your soup kitchens. Make them shut down your adoption agencies because you won’t hand a baby boy over to two men who like to jam various and sundry body parts up each others’ rectums.

    In other words, STAND AND FIGHT.

    The only proper course of action is total non-compliance with these totalitarian edicts of the regime, and FORCING THEIR HAND.

    Anything less than that, and you LOSE. MEN fight wars. If you refuse to do your duty and act like MEN, then the war is already lost. And make no mistake, cowardice is a grave sin, and you will answer for it.

    Every bishop is given a crosier upon his ordination to the episcopacy. A crosier is a shepherd’s staff. It is a six to seven foot long staff that a shepherd uses to beat the crap out of wolves. That’s your job. Beating the crap out of the wolves – not killing all of the sheep yourself so that there is nothing left for the wolves to eat.

    MAN UP!!!! FIGHT, YOU FOOLS!!!

    http://barnhardt.biz/

    • wow! Some sharp words, but I liked it Bridgett. Did you say part of this or was this all from Barnhardt?

    • Of course, she’s right, and I thank her for agreeing: It’s the PLAN–to drive the Church (and everybody else) out of the social services realm altogether. That’s the entire point of my post.

      They USE the issues of gay “rights” and the “war on women” to appeal to women, the young, gays, the anti-religious, atheists, progressives–a whole coalition consisting of anybody who for whatever reason is susceptible to this “social justice” claptrap. It’s a smokescreen to hide their ACTUAL goals, which are communist.

      So threatening to close down or actually closing down is just what Barry wants. Obviously, Jenky and George are NOT stupid and they “get it,” as I pointed out in their quotes. When you have Jenky outright comparing Obama to Hitler and Stalin and George predicting that his successors will end up in PRISON OR AS MARTYRS, then you KNOW they understand. She’s going to extremes to call them fools. They are anything but. As I said, Pope John Paul II and many others in the Church know communism when they see it. They’ve been fighting it for a long time.

      It’s no surprise that Jenky and George haven’t gotten much play in the lamestream media. It does NOT look good for bishops to compare Obama to Hitler and Stalin and to outright state that opposition to his policies will cause people to go to prison or to be martyred (LTC Lakin–already there. NOT reported in the lamestream, either).

      So the COMPLICIT media DON’T PUBLICIZE WHAT THE BISHOPS SAY. Why? Because people might notice! They might think about it and then Barry won’t get reelected. So they must COVER UP THE TRUTH, as they’ve covered up his INELIGIBILITY, and his LONG ASSOCIATIONS WITH RADICALS, COMMUNISTS, and even MUSLIM extremists. As they covered up for his mentor “Reverend” Wright. And his long association with domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.

      What happens when Republicans allude to Hitler in the same breath as Obama? The lamestream goes berserk. But have they gone similarly berserk when the bishops made these comments? NO. Why? They know how many people listen to the bishops and how much weight their opinion has with the public AND they don’t dare Alinsky the bishops like they do the “birthers”. That only brings more down upon Barry’s head. So they simply DON’T REPORT.

      These lawsuits will have to be reported and the SCOTUS will take notice. They’re going to try to downplay it, but people will notice, too, because the bishops are going to have the TRUTH told from the pulpits.

      Do you think it’s only coincidence that the media goes after the CATHOLIC CHURCH over the overblown sexual abuse scandals? First of all, they mischaracterize it. They pretend that it’s not about homosexual predators and homosexual victims AND they pretend that it’s about “children” when in most cases the victim is post-adolescent. And most instances are “recovered” memories so one must suspect progressive dirty tricks. One simply must. Recovered memory has been debunked in the psychological literature. The lamestream pummels any priest who DARES to defend himself in court and the Church pities the victims, even if they suspect they’re lying, because they think it’s the right thing to do, so they pay them off. But that’s another story, which I’ve bloviated about before.

      Yet it’s ALL of a piece with the progressive, communist campaign against religion and against Catholics in particular BECAUSE THE CHURCH IS SO BIG, SO INFLUENTIAL, AND SO POWERFUL. Communists cannot brook any other organization that has as much or more power than they. The Catholic Church must be destroyed. If it cannot be destroyed, then it must be constantly put on the defensive and discredited.

      The bishops were fools in 2008. They believed Barry’s outreach to them. How many others fell for his bullcrap and his NLP? They aren’t the only ones, but they aren’t making that mistake again.

      I hope the bishops do take Barnhardt’s advice and FIGHT! She’s totally correct that they should force Obama to shut them down at gunpoint. I believe that what George said 2 years ago, IN CHICAGO, is an indication that they do plan to FIGHT. But they’re first going the lawsuit route, which seems smart.

      Walk softly and carry a big crozier. These men, believe me, are far smarter and better educated that Barry could ever dream in his wildest dreams from whomever his father is.

  8. Told ya About the Lesbian Nuns in Leavenworth
    Ann Barnhardt – May 22, 2012 Snips

    I mentioned not too long ago that I was exposed to a bunch of lesbian ex-nuns (and active nuns) when I was a kid outside of Kansas City. My bedroom window looked out onto the bell towers of the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth’s headquarters, less than a mile away. The sisters who were old-school, pre-Vatican II wore habits and were generally conservative, but sidelined because of their age. The 1960’s and forward “nuns” were pretty much all lesbians, or if they weren’t, they were sure fooling a lot of people with their high-and-tight six-dollar haircuts, manly clothing and overall butch affectations and comportment. If a child can’t instantly tell whether a person is a man or a woman, there are some serious, serious psychosexual problems afoot with the androgyne in question. And, like I said, Leavenworth was never lacking for “courageous ex-nuns”, who always ended up living with fellow ex-nun “roommates”. Uh-huh.

    Yeah. So, one more time for those of you who might be new or still haven’t figured this out yet. The Marxist infiltrators of the Catholic Church have specifically and consciously pushed for the government takeover of pretty much all charitable functions that WERE the domain of the Church – hence the traitorous alliance with the “democrat” party in the United States.

    • This is true. Sadly liberation theology was endemic in the Church back then. Pope John Paul II came out and condemned it. Part of the problem with the sexual abuse issue was that there were many, far too many, homosexual men in the seminaries in those days. The hierarchy believed that so long as the person took the same vow of celibacy, their orientation didn’t matter. BIG mistake. Of course, there always were problems with heterosexual priests getting involved with married (or single) women. Even having kids, which the Church ended up supporting. Marxist infiltration of the church probably was deliberate and part of the plan, too. And these much-praised-in-the-lamestream so-called nuns are not Catholics in the true sense of the word. Trust the lamestream to take the side of the lesbian, activist “nuns”, every time. It suits their agenda to a T.

    The Hammer weighs in:

    “Elections come and go, but the Constitution endures. This is a hugely important constitutional issue. The substance of this is extremely important.

    Of all the liberties in our constitution, the first in the First Amendment is [freedom of] religion. And the way, if you’re a secularist and you believe in the leviathan state… to constrict it is by restricting the definition of religion. And that’s what the suit is all about.

    Under the HHS regulation, religion is practiced only in a church on Sundays, essentially: Once you walk out the church door, you are not engaged in religion, even if you’re running a Catholic hospital or a Catholic charity — and that is a complete undermining of the idea of religion and religious vocation.

    And that’s why this suit is being brought. Because if you are outside the protection of the First Amendment in a Catholic hospital or a Catholic charity, then the state can dictate that you do anything it wants — even if it’s a violation of your deepest doctrinal beliefs.”

  10. I want to thank all the bloggers who reblogged and/or waded through my long post and liked it! I have checked out your most excellent works, too. TY. We appreciate new readers. Always. Come back. You’re welcome here.

    • It is a post that makes people think Miri. A good one. Amazing what we can find when sharp diggers put their heads together.

  11. Miri, you are to be thanked. You and all the Famous Authors for working tirelessly in support and defense of our Constitution. Thanks, Bridgette and Renee and all vigilant private eyes. Sherlock would be impressed.

    we can never let this usurpation stand as precedence even if it kills us. future Americans depend on it. unless they feature Cantonese as their country’s national language. and we’re all back to out houses because they are “green”.

    The Commies Came! The Commies Came!

    there is a war on Christians… in your parish.

    • I don’t miss my beanie. Or my saddle oxfords. Or that stupid blazer with the loooooooong pleated skirt that made us all look like dumpy grannies.

  12. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/05/23/catholic-leaders-outraged-over-media-silence-on-hhs-mandate-lawsuits/

    More proof of the Journolist and how our media function like Pravda, under the direction of the WH. Is it only COINCIDENCE that there’s a MEDIA BLACKOUT on the news of all these lawsuits?

    Even O’Reilly is outraged, too. He had his “talking points memo” on radio focusing on that deliberate silence because it will harm Barry’s election.

    Good stats in this story. 60 million Catholics in the USA. (although that’s practicing Catholics. Wikipedia currently says there are 77 million registered Catholics. That’s about 1/4 the entire population. If you count raised-from-birth-but-non-practicing Catholics, the percentage is much higher.)

    The Catholic vote will be the most important swing vote this year. So it’s not just a major policy issue, it is one with massive political implications. Yet, 19 seconds of news coverage remains the only attention given by the evening broadcast networks. Two days after news broke, the tally is:

    ABC World News – ZERO seconds of coverage. But, last night there was time for a full report on sleep apnea and Katie Couric discussing how she met Queen Elizabeth; how she wore a peach coat and “a lovely peach hat.”

    NBC Nightly News – ZERO seconds of coverage. But last night there was time to squeeze in a story on a new computer app that shows America’s eating habits, “graphic evidence” of how we eat badly late at night.

    CBS Evening News – a brief 19 seconds of coverage on the evening the lawsuit became public. ZERO coverage last night. But there was time in the broadcast for a Cincinnati Reds baseball fan lucky enough to catch two home runs in left field.

    “The intentional, deafening silence continues,” stated Brent Bozell, MRC President, “and we are not the only ones concerned. This deliberate censorship must come to an end.””

    IT WON’T, until he’s out of office.

    There are a lot of statements about this topic at the link, by various Catholic leaders and other organizations.

    • This one goes to my premise about the orchestrated COMMUNIST PLAN to run the Catholic Church and other institutions OUT OF THE FIELD OF EDUCATION, so that it becomes state-controlled INDOCTRINATION from cradle to grave:

      “On May 22, the New York Times did not run a front-page story on the 43 Catholic dioceses and institutions suing the Obama administration for violating the First Amendment; instead, a 459 word story was printed on p. 17. On the front page was a 4611 word piece slamming private Catholic and Protestant schools that qualified for a publicly funded scholarship program. And they have the audacity to ask for evidence of bias?”

      Bill Donohue
      President
      The Catholic League”

    • O’Reilly is the one that is talking about it and announced it a couple days ago, and said once he talks about it the others will follow. So far they haven’t, but they refused to cover the blacks attacking those white journalists too. He kept it up for days until the media had to report.

      I am assuming he will do the same with this. His major point was the cost to the taxpayers for the over 40 lawsuits hitting the government over Obamacare.

      Government by PRAVDA propaganda. You will only hear what THEY want you to hear and see!

      It is up to alternative media to counteract what the Lame Stream Media thinks is not important for citizens to know. The communist governments must be proud of how their tactics are now silencing our own country.

      We must stay on top of news – and little tidbits that we read elsewhere – that should be reported and aren’t. International news sources are getting to be most important.

  13. This is just a question:

    I’m thinking of that Jim Morrison song, “If you give this man a ride, sweet family will die”
    yeah it’s called Rider on the Storm, not my favorite song

    So you pick up this attractive guy and he turns out to be some crazed psyco showing you his special knife and then he says stop at that gas station, I am hungry.
    Amazingly he gets out of your car to buy sandwiches.
    More amazingly you don’t put the pedal to the metal and get the **** out of there.

    My question:

    If America re-elects Obama, does she deserve all she gets?

    • Missed you davem.
      If America re-elects Obama, does she deserve all she gets?
      America did not elect him, he was stuffed down America’s throats. Selected, so America deserves better, not what we GET. I am sick of being stuck with those others select.

    • The analogy is a little off, because in truth the driver of the car doesn’t really see the knife or hear the threats. There’s a special filter between him and the driver. When he flashes the knife, the filter turns it into something else–like a crucifix. When he makes a threat, the filter turns it into something far less sinister. The filter, of course, is the media. The victim never really SEES or HEARS the TRUTH about the passenger from Hell.

  14. ALL who KNeW….KNoW……. as they who KNew…. but
    danced with the Devil…. knowingly….have a graveyard dance
    waiting for them all…. so SAD!
    A life built in a FOG ….of…. LIES…. is HELL’a … empty….so SAD!!!!

  15. The author of the Exorcist is suing Georgetown university for having another pro-choice speaker on their campus–Sebelius. He says, rightly so, that they should no longer be called Catholic because they ignore the Pope’s directions. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/05/25/exorcist-author-to-sue-georgetown-after-sebelius-visit/

  16. If you can’t get the Catholic Church here in the US – how about going after the Vatican? Do you believe the Butler did it? Has anyone read about this scandal that has gone on for “months.”

    Vatican in chaos after butler arrested for leaks
    Updated: May 27, 2012 11:21 AM CST
    By NICOLE WINFIELD Associated Press Snips

    VATICAN CITY (AP) – The Vatican’s investigation into the source of leaked documents has yielded its first target with the arrest of the pope’s butler, but the investigation is continuing into a scandal that has embarrassed the Holy See by revealing evidence of internal power struggles, intrigue and corruption in the highest levels of the Catholic Church governance.

    The detention of butler Paolo Gabriele, one of the few members of the papal household, capped one of the most convulsive weeks in recent Vatican history and threw the Holy See into chaos as it enters a critical phase in its efforts to show the world it’s serious about complying with international norms on financial transparency.

    The tumult began with the publication last weekend of a book of leaked Vatican documents including correspondence, notes and memos to the pope and his private secretary. It peaked with the inglorious ouster on Thursday of the president of the Vatican bank. And it concluded with confirmation Saturday that Pope Benedict XVI’s own butler was the alleged mole feeding documents to Italian journalists in an apparent bid to discredit the pontiff’s No. 2.

    “If you wrote this in fiction you wouldn’t believe it,” said Carl Anderson, a member of the board of the Vatican bank which contributed to the whirlwind with its no-confidence vote in its president, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi. “No editor would let you put it in a novel.”

    The bank, known as the Institute for Religious Works, issued a scathing denunciation of Gotti Tedeschi in a memorandum obtained Saturday by The Associated Press. In it the bank, or IOR by its Italian initials, explained its reasons for ousting Gotti Tedeschi: he routinely missed board meetings, failed to do his job, failed to defend the bank, polarized its personnel and displayed “progressively erratic personal behavior.”
    ~
    Gotti Tedeschi was also accused by the board of leaking documents himself: The IOR memorandum said he “failed to provide any formal explanation for the dissemination of documents last known” to be in his possession. In an interview with the AP, Anderson said the latter accusation was independent of the broader “Vatileaks” scandal that has rocked the Vatican for months. But he stressed: “It is not an insignificant issue.”

    Gotti Tedeschi hasn’t commented publicly about his ouster or the reasons behind it, saying he has too much admiration for the pope to do so. He also hasn’t been arrested, avoiding the fate that befell Gabriele. The 46-year-old father of three has been in Vatican detention since Wednesday after Vatican investigators discovered Holy See documents in his apartment. The Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said Gabriele had met with his lawyers and that the investigation was taking its course through the Vatican’s judicial system.

    • I heard about it when it happened months ago. Seems somebody linked a story with allegations about the Vatican bank. So then, when I saw this get loooooong and prominent coverage by Brian Williams, I was curious, so I went searching and found the “facts”, which are slim. One thing Williams didn’t make clear was that it was the Vatican investigation that led to the guy’s arrest, by the Vatican police. Apparently this is like Wikileaks and NOBODY knows what’s REAL and what’s invented among these “leaked” documents supposedly showing corruption. One can’t help but think about Barry’s bogus “documents” and the invented “proof” about GWB’s military service that brought Dan Rather down. So is this just another case of dirty tricks to damage the Catholic Church because it stands against Obama and the global communists? I’m not saying it didn’t happen; I’m saying the amount of coverage they give this story, which after all takes place in ITALY, is ridiculous, considering the “crickets” on the FACT that 43 Catholic organizations are currently suing Obama’s administration over Obamacare.

      http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2888015/posts Follow that story through from Ace of Spades to the blog where the blogger recounts the horrific thing that’s happened to him and his family because he wrote the truth about a leftist. Note that Andrew Breitbart was involved in this issue, too, right before he died. Is there NO JUSTICE in this country anymore? Law enforcement does NOTHING to solve this crime. WHY?

  17. Obama’s War on Christianity
    Jeffrey Kuhner
    May 26, 2012 snips

    Liberals are waging a war on Christianity. This is the real reason why the Catholic bishops this week filed lawsuits against the Obama administration’s contraception mandate. The Catholic church realizes religious freedom is at stake. If the courts don’t overturn President Obama’s authoritarian regulations, America will slide toward secular tyranny.

    ~
    For decades, America’s secular elites have sought to eradicate our Judeo-Christian heritage from the public square. They have imposed abortion on demand, resulting in the mass murder of over 50 million unborn babies — a holocaust. They have taken down the Ten Commandments from courthouses. They have banned prayer in public schools. They have glorified sexual promiscuity, encouraging educators to hand out condoms and birth control pills to 12- and 13-year-olds. They are actively seeking to promote “homosexual marriage” against the wishes of an overwhelming majority of Americans. In short, they are bent on implementing a social revolution from above.

    Mr. Obama’s contraceptive mandate is the culmination of liberalism’s war on Christianity. The issue is not “women’s health” or access to birth control. Most insurance providers offer contraception, and it is available cheaply and almost everywhere. Rather, religious organizations must not be compelled to sacrifice their most cherished beliefs on the altar of liberalism. The Catholic church’s fight is freedom’s fight. We are all Catholics now

    • http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/06/new-obama-ad-dreams-of-my-daughter-promotes-abortion-and-free-birth-control/

      Gateway Pundit has a new Obama ad that has the most warped perspective on being born female that I have EVER seen. It’s infuriating. They act AS IF being female is a birth defect or a congenital DISABILITY.

      It argues that if females are DENIED FREE birth control, which the ad actually calls “MEDICINE” that all women need, then they will NOT in any way be capable of pursuing their dreams of, for example, becoming a “dolphin doctor” or a fighter pilot.

      TODAY, RIGHT NOW, there are mothers who are veterinarians and who serve in the military. WOMEN CAN DO ANYTHING THEY WANT AND THEY CAN BE MOTHERS, TOO. They do NOT have to choose.

      And being female is NOT a disability. It is NOT a medical condition, nor is pregnancy a DISEASE that requires treatment or prevention. This is disgusting. What is that woman teaching her daughters, IF SHE AND HER DAUGHTERS ARE EVEN FOR REAL AND ARE NOT, INSTEAD, ACTRESSES?

      Dolphin doctor, indeed. How about some sympathy and empathy for the little girls who are ABORTED and so NEVER have a chance to even HAVE dreams?

      btw, the House of Representatives yesterday refused to pass a law AGAINST abortions for sex selection (to protect females from being aborted just for being female). For some reason, the bill needed a 2/3 majority and 168 representatives REFUSED TO ban sex-based abortions. There were 246 votes to ban sex-selective abortions; there are 242 Republicans in the House.

      Wanna guess at the WARPED LOGIC that DemoncRATS used to defend being FOR ABORTING FEMALES (aka “gendercide”)? This bill might cause RACIAL PROFILING of Asian women and women from other cultures who prefer male offspring to female offspring–so it’s culturally insensitive.

      Obama is ALSO pro-gendercide. I swear I’m NOT making this up: http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/story?section=news/national_world&id=8684442&rss=rss-kabc-article-8684442

      “The vote came just days after a pro-life group released undercover video calling attention to the issue of sex-selected abortions.

      The measure would have imposed possible fines and possible prison sentences on doctors who knowingly performed abortions based on sex. The ban failed to get the two-thirds majority needed to pass.

      The White House, most Democrats, abortion rights groups and some Asian-American organizations opposed the bill, saying it could lead to racial profiling of Asian-American women and subject doctors who do not report suspected sex-selection abortions to criminal charges.

      The bill had little chance of becoming law because the Democratic-controlled Senate would likely have ignored it.”

      So now Romney’s supporters can come out with a great ad of their own about how the DemoncRATS and Obama want to protect the “right” of doctors to abort babies simply because they happen to be female and have that “disability” and the future potential to contract that “disease” of pregnancy.

      The abortion itself is just preventive medicine. Prevent the girl from being born and you prevent her from ever contracting that horrible disease of pregnancy.
