NY cardinal who lives tax-free in $30M mansion scolds Americans for being against illegal immigration

In an op/ed, New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan chastises Donald Trump and Americans who have problems with illegal immigration and illegals who commit heinous crimes of rape and murder, calling us “nativists.”

See:

The Oxford English Dictionary defines “nativism” as “The policy of protecting the interests of native-born or established inhabitants against those of immigrants.” In his op/ed, Dolan calls “nativism” an “ugly phenomenon,” and “nativists” as those “who see the unwashed, ignorant, bothersome brood as criminals and misfits who threaten ‘pure America,’ and are toxic to everything decent in the United States.”

Timothy Dolan

Dolan writes:

“[Nativism] flourished in our country during the 1840s and 1850s — actually becoming a popular political party, the Know-Nothings — and appeared again, in the 1870s, as the American Protective Association; in the 1920s, as the KKK; and during post-World War II America, as Protestants and Other Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

These nativists believed the immigrant to be dangerous, and that America was better off without them. All these poor degenerates did, according to the nativists, was to dilute the clean, virtuous, upright citizenry of God-fearing true Americans.”

Dolan continues, referring to “those happy days decades ago” when he taught American religious history to university students:

“I made the point to my students that nativism never really did disappear completely, but was a continual virulent strain in the American psyche, which would probably sadly show up again.

This point my students would not buy. ‘Father Dolan,’ they would say, ‘there’s no denying that this bigotry was there in our past. But, come on! Who could ever believe now that immigrants are dirty, drunken, irresponsible, dangerous threats to clean, white, Protestant, Anglo-Saxon America! Those days are gone.’

I wish I were in the college classroom again, so I could roll out my ‘Trump card’ to show the students that I was right. Nativism is alive, well — and apparently popular!

After slyly bashing Donald Trump — and by extension Trump’s supporters — with his “Trump card” reference, Dolan turns coy, insisting that “I am not in the business of telling people what candidates they should support or who deserves their vote.”

Then, this cardinal who lives in the lap of luxury (see below) goes all better-than-thou sanctimonious:

“But as a Catholic, I take seriously the Bible’s teaching that we are to welcome the stranger, one of the most frequently mentioned moral imperatives in both the Old and New Testament.”

illegal

Dolan, who once taught in a university, can’t seem to distinguish between LEGAL immigrants to the United States and ILLEGAL aliens who:

  • Disrespect this country’s laws and borders;
  • Make a mockery of millions of people across the world who actually respect our laws by applying to immigrate here;
  • Force taxpayers to pay for their welfare, medical care and education (k-12 and college!)

Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York leads the pack of Catholic archbishops and bishops who live in palatial mansions.

Dolan lives in a 15,000-square-foot mansion (below) on Madison Avenue in in one of the priciest corridors of Manhattan. The mansion reportedly is filled with thick red carpets and priceless antiques, and is estimated to be worth at least $30 million. Dolan shares the mansion with three other priests. (See “Pope Francis calls again for wealth redistribution, while U.S. archbishops live in palatial homes”)

Cardinal Dolan lives here

Just four men live in a swanky mansion of 15 thousand sq. feet!

Hey, Dolan, let’s see you “take seriously the Bible’s teaching that we are to welcome the stranger” by sharing those 15,000 sq. ft. with illegal “immigrants”.

I dare you.

This is the same Archbishop Timothy Dolan who led this year’s New York St. Patrick’s Day parade as its Grand Marshal, despite the participation of a homosexual activist group, Out@NBCUniversal, and despite the parade’s rejection of an application from the pro-life adoption group Children First Foundation.

Wayne Allyn Root: GOP is scared to death of Donald Trump

Wayne Allyn Root, “Donald Trump’s Mouth Is a Nuclear Weapon,” The Blaze, July 27, 2015

(Note: Words in italics colored green are mine. -Éowyn)

The biased, clueless liberal mainstream media are in shock and awe. They have no idea why so many Americans love Donald Trump. But the answer is so simple and clear. Just ask any conservative.

Donald Trump is a breath of fresh air. Donald Trump is the answer to what ails America – simply because he kills two birds with one stone.

America has two big problems. America is under attack by a vicious one-two combination. America has been ruined by two parties. And Donald Trump’s mouth solves both problems. Donald Trump’s mouth is a nuclear weapon.

Democrats clearly hate American exceptionalism, capitalism, entrepreneurship, and Judeo-Christian values. They hate business owners (see “You didn’t build that”) and appear to blame American patriotism, white people, business owners and Christians for every problem in the world today.

The Democrat Party is riddled with socialists, Marxists and communists hell bent on “fundamentally changing America.”

The Democrat Party is filled with frauds (see President Barack Obama, Jonathan Gruber and the lies used to sell Obamacare); traitors (see Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry and the new Iran nuclear treaty); thieves and conmen (see the scandal involving $2 billion donated to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state); reckless wasters of taxpayer money (see Obama’s Kenya trip that cost us over $50 million dollars for one day in a country that offers America NOTHING ); and outright criminals (see Hillary’s upcoming criminal investigation and Obama’s use of the IRS to target, persecute and even attempt to imprison political opponents and critics).

But the GOP may be worse.

If there’s anything worse than evil, it’s cowardice in the face of evil. The GOP leadership is riddled with cowards, wimps and naïve, feckless, country club powder puffs who have no clue how to fight back against the Democrats ruining America and destroying our children’s future with debt. Yes, Democrats are the bad guys. But Republicans are standing by helplessly, scared and petrified, allowing it to happen.

John Boehner cries againRepublican House Speaker John Boehner cries, again, on Golf Channel, to be aired Aug. 3, 2015. (H/t FOTM’s Anon)

_____________________

I suspect many of the Republican leaders in Washington, D.C. are either being bribed or blackmailed. Exhibit A is Supreme Court Justice Roberts, House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. These guys are all either bought and paid for; or someone is holding a gun to their heads (along with a photo of them in bed doing something shocking). Don’t believe me? See the criminal case against former Republican House Speaker Dennis Hastert. They are all doing something morally wrong, or breaking some law. And Obama’s partners in the National Security Administration and IRS are always watching. America is being lost because the GOP is bringing knives to a gunfight.

Note: For speculations on Chief Justice Roberts being blackmailed, click here.

The only way to save America is to bring a nuclear weapon to a gun fight. And Donald Trump’s mouth is a nuclear weapon.

It’s time to stop being “nice.” “Nice” is okay for playing golf with Muffy at the country club. But “nice” doesn’t work in politics. “Nice” guys finish last in politics. “Nice” is getting our country ruined. “Nice” is killing middle class jobs. “Nice” is wiping out middle class incomes. “Nice” has led to negative GDP growth. “Nice” has led to more businesses closing than opening each day for the first time in America’s history. “Nice” has left the border wide open to an illegal alien invasion, the bankruptcy of America and a terrorist attack like Sept. 11, 2001.

“Nice” has led to disaster and disgrace all over the globe. The world no longer has any respect for, or fear of America. We are in decline and disarray. We are headed for collapse and disaster.

Into this crisis steps “the nuclear mouth” Donald Trump. He isn’t afraid to put America first. He isn’t afraid to tell the truth. He isn’t afraid of what the media thinks. He isn’t afraid of being called a “racist” for pointing out how Obama has damaged and destroyed America. He isn’t afraid to question Obama’s very mysterious, questionable and troubling past – much of it sealed away in darkness.

Trump isn’t afraid to fight like our future is on the line because he understands it is. He isn’t afraid to offend. He isn’t afraid to expose the cowards and frauds in his own GOP leadership for what they are. He refuses to be “politically correct” when he sees corruption and idiocy. He won’t back down or apologize for telling the truth.

Of course the evil Democrats, corrupt and cowardly GOP leadership, and biased mainstream media hate him. They are all rooting for another Mitt Romney. Let’s compare Mitt to Donald Trump:

They are both rich white guys. Both famous successful businessmen. Both Republican presidential candidates past and present. That’s where the similarity ends.

Mitt Romney is a very nice guy. Mitt has manners. Mitt would never offend anyone. Mitt let the media run roughshod over him. Mitt would never say something rude or offensive about Obama or Hillary. Mitt would never accuse them of crimes against the American people. Mitt would never prosecute Obama or Hillary if he was elected.

And one other difference: Mitt lost.

It’s no coincidence that Mitt lost. The last thing we need now is “nice.” It’s also no coincidence that the people in power (evil Democrats, the corrupt GOP leadership, and the mainstream media) all want another Mitt Romney. They want the status quo. They want to keep the bribes and blackmail coming. They don’t want anyone to upset the apple cart.

They are scared to death of Donald Trump, who doesn’t play by traditional rules or etiquette. They are scared to death of a guy who can’t be bribed. They are scared to death of a guy who speaks about the hopes, dreams and fears of middle class Americans. They are scared to death of a street fighter. They are scared to death of a candidate who is as relentless for saving America…as Obama is for destroying America. Donald Trump understands what I call, “The Power of Relentless.”

Mostly, they are scared to death of Trump’s mouth. The kind of mouth that could stir up a citizen revolution and topple “business as usual” in Washington, D.C.

Yes Donald Trump’s mouth is a nuclear weapon. And that’s precisely why we love him.

Bombs away!

Companies that fund Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby body parts

On July 14, 2015, the Center for Medical Progress, headed by a valiant Christian named David Daleiden, released a shocking undercover video showing Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood (PP) sells the body parts of aborted unborn children (like fetal livers) and has its physicians do unlawful partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts. See “Planned Parenthood sells body parts of aborted human babies”.

Days later, a second sting video was released, showing another PP senior official, Dr. Mary Gatter, haggling over how much she would charge for the aborted baby body parts. See “Second Planned Parenthood sting video: use “less crunchy” abortion method to get intact body parts for sale” and also “Human baby body parts and tissue for sale“.

Here are 38 companies that have directly funded Planned Parenthood (source: The Daily Signal). Since abortion accounts for 94% of Planned Parenthood’s for-profit business, this means the following ghoulish companies are directly funding the murder of innocent and defenseless human beings, as well as the sale of their body parts and organs:

  1. Adobe
  2. American Cancer Society
  3. American Express
  4. AT&T
  5. Avon
  6. Bank of America
  7. Bath & Body Works
  8. Ben & Jerry’s
  9. Clorox
  10. Converse
  11. Deutsche Bank
  12. Dockers
  13. Energizer
  14. Expedia
  15. ExxonMobil
  16. Fannie Mae
  17. Groupon
  18. Intuit
  19. Johnson & Johnson
  20. La Senza
  21. Levi Strauss
  22. Liberty Mutual
  23. Macy’s
  24. March of Dimes
  25. Microsoft
  26. Morgan Stanley
  27. Nike
  28. Oracle
  29. PepsiCo
  30. Pfizer
  31. Progressive (auto insurance)
  32. Starbucks
  33. Susan G. Komen
  34. Tostitos
  35. Unilever
  36. United Way
  37. Verizon
  38. Wells Fargo

The Daily Signal (TDS) originally listed 41 companies — a list obtained from Planned Parenthood’s website. After TDS first published the list, three companies — Xerox, Ford Motor Co., Coca-Cola — contacted TDS to say their inclusion on PP’s list was erroneous. They asked PP to remove them from its list. PP’s response was to delete the entire list from their website.

Below are some reaction to the two undercover videos.

1. The Good Guys:

2. The Bad Guys:

The following politicians and organizations are defending PP:

  • The Obama administration not only says the selling of aborted babies’ body parts is “ethical,” spokesman Josh Ernest said that Obama, who says he’s a Christian, will not defund Planned Parenthood. That means the evil POS is forcing you, me, and every taxpayer to fund this ghoulish practice, against our conscience.
  • Wannabe-president Hillary Clinton, who calls herself a Christian, on July 23, 2016, defended the Planned Parenthood abortion business, saying PP offers “important services.” Hillary also defended late-term or partial-birth abortions, which is illegal. (H/t FOTM’s MomOfIV)
  • House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, who calls herself a Catholic Christian, instead of demanding an investigation of PP, wants the Obama administration to investigate the Center for Medical Progress who made the undercover videos.
  • Minnesota governor Mark Dayton refuses to investigate PP.
  • The New York Times also defends PP’s sale of aborted baby parts.
  •  A Rasmussen poll found that 25% of Likely U.S. Voters favor the sale of body organs from aborted babies for use in medical research. 54% oppose, and 22% are undecided. 43% favor the use of fetal tissue in medical research; 34% are opposed; 23% are not sure.

Trump threatens third-party run. Stalking horse for Hillary?

Riding a wave of popularity and polling high among conservatives, Donald Trump is now saying he may run as a third-party candidate next year.

On Wednesday, July 22, 2015, in a 40-min. interview with The Hill, complaining that the Republican National Committee (RNC) has not been supportive of him, Trump said the chances that he will launch a third-party White House run will “absolutely” increase if the RNC is unfair to him during the 2016 primary season.

If Trump indeed runs as a third-party candidate, he will split the Republican/conservative vote and so ensure that the Democratic Party candidate will win.

Henry Makow warns:

Trump is allegedly leading the other GOP candidates by a large margin. He catapulted into the lead by pretending to champion ordinary Americans who are fed up with illegal immigration. Calling Mexicans “rapists” is a little extreme but he needed to get attention fast….

Trump was drafted to run in 2012 but they decided he wasn’t needed. Then as now, Trump tailored his position to co-opt the opposition. He is “Christian, pro-life, anti gay marriage and so for the death penalty especially for terrorists.”

“I’m a Protestant, I’m a Presbyterian,” he told the Christian Post. “And you know I’ve had a good relationship with the church over the years. I think religion is a wonderful thing. I think my religion is a wonderful religion.”

Here are the facts on Donald Trump’s politics:

1. A 2011 report by the Center for Responsive Politics showed that over two decades of US elections, Donald Trump made contributions to campaigns of both Republican Party and Democratic Party candidates. (Source: OpenSecrets.org)

However, Trump gave much more to the Democrats in the 2006 cycle: $5,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and $20,000 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, effectively buoying the election prospects of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, respectively. Just $1,000 of Trump’s money in the 2006 cycle went to the National Republican Senatorial Committee. Beginning with the 2012 cycle, however, financial disclosures show that Trump has donated exclusively to Republican candidates and groups. (Politico)

2. Trump’s political party ID is all over the map (Wikipedia):

  • Republican (before 1999; 2009-2011; 2012-present)
  • Reform Party (1999-2001)
  • Democratic (2001-2009)
  • Independent (2011-2012)

Donald Trump with the Clintons

3. Trump’s support for Hillary Clinton (Politico):

  • Hillary received donations from both Trump and his son in 2002, 2005, 2006 and 2007.
  • Trump donated at least $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation.
  • In another sign of their closeness, Hillary had front-pew seating at Trump’s 2005 wedding to current wife Melania Knauss in Palm Beach, Florida.

4. Trump was pro-abortion before he became pro-life (The Federalist):

  • In 1999, Trump was pro-abort. He said on NBC’s Meet the Press that while he “cringe[s] to hear people debating the subject” of partial birth abortion he “still just believes in choice.”
  • For the last two decades, Trump has supported the most extreme of abortion advocates, by donating to high profile pro-choice Democrats like Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, and Chuck Schumer.
  • By 2010, 11 years later, when Trump considered a run for the White House for the first time, he suddenly changed his mind, saying he is and has been “pro-life.” How to explain the change? “As I’ve grown older, I’ve changed my views.” Some will give him a pass, arguing that he has matured in his views like Ronald Reagan once did. But Reagan wrote an entire book, making a reasoned case for his new belief. Trump just gave some rambling interviews.

5. Trump’s other flip-flops (The Federalist):

  • Trump stumped for universal healthcare in the early 2000s; now he opposes it.
  • Trump once called for an end to the War on Drugs; now he supports it.
  • Trump used to favor gun control; now he claims to be a life member of the NRA. In 2000, when he was flirting a presidential run as a Reform Party candidate, Trump wrote, “I generally oppose gun control, but I support the ban on assault weapons and I also support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun. “

Whether Donald Trump is a political opportunist whose party identification and positions change with the wind, the fact is that, if he runs as a third party candidate in 2016, he will split the Republican-conservative vote, as seen in the following latest polling data (Wikipedia):

  • A survey conducted by The Economist/YouGov released July 9, 2015 is the first major nationwide poll to show Trump as the 2016 Republican presidential frontrunner.
  • A Suffolk/USA Today poll released July 14, 2015 showed a 17% support for Trump among Republican voters, with runner-up Jeb Bush picking up 14%.
  • A Washington Post-ABC News poll taken on July 16–19 showed Trump had 24% Republican support, over Scott Walker at 13%.

Do we really want a repeat of the 1992 and 1996 presidential elections when Ross Perot’s third-party candidacy helped elect and re-elect Bill Clinton?

Obama revives Obamacare death panel

In the national debates/discussion leading up to Congress’ (which was then dominated by Democrats in both houses) passage of Obamacare, aka the Orwellian-named Affordable Care Act, Sarah Palin was roundly vilified by the media for warning Americans about “death panels.”

By “death panels,” Palin meant physicians “counseling” their elderly or terminally-ill patients on end-of-life planning, including “advance directives.” The latter, also known as advance health care directive or living will, is a legal document in which a person specifies what actions should be taken for their health if they are no longer able to make decisions for themselves because of illness or incapacity. The concern is that in these counseling sessions with authority figures such as medical doctors and hospital administrators, the patients could be pressured to make decisions contrary to their wishes or well being.

Think that can’t happen?

Think again. See:

Now that Obamacare is a reality, despite Republicans being a majority in both houses of Congress, the Obama administration is reviving the death panel.

Obamacare Alaskan cruise for seniors

Noam N. Levey reports for the Los Angeles Times that “6 years after end-of-life planning nearly derailed development of the Affordable Care Act amid charges of ‘death panels,’ the Obama administration has revived a proposal to reimburse physicians for talking with their Medicare patients about how patients want to be cared for as they near death.”

The proposal from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is contained in a large set of Medicare regulations unveiled on Wednesday, July 8, 2015. 

The new proposal would not require Medicare patients to sign any order or even to talk with their physicians about end-of-life care. Rather, the proposed regulation would allow medical providers to bill Medicare for “advance-care planning” should a patient want to have the discussion. Such a session could include “the explanation and discussion of advance directives such as standard forms by the physician or other qualified health professional.”

The American Medical Association has recommended the Medicare billing change.

Medicare currently provides coverage to more than 50 million mostly older Americans and is projected to grow steadily as baby boomers retire — the same Medicare that will go broke next year, in 2016. according to a 2012 report by the program’s trustees.
