Pope Francis compares President Trump to homicidal tyrant King Herod, and anti-LGBT to Hitler

I thought the Catholic Church, like other religions, have tax-exempt status so long as the clergy refrain from politics and making political pronouncements.

Not only do some priests and deacons violate that rule, Pope Francis clearly exempts himself from that rule as well.

Not only has Jorge Bergoglio, his real name, made comments that are political in nature, he calls people who are critical of homosexuals “Hitler”. Pope Francis also compares President Trump to the homicidal tyrant King Herod who, in an attempt to kill baby Jesus, gave orders to kill all 2-year-old and younger male babies in Bethlehem and its vicinity (the Massacre of the Innocents in the New Testament). But Bergoglio doesn’t have the integrity or guts to actually name Trump, although it is obvious his target is Trump.

According to BreakingIsraelNews, La Civilta Cattolica reported on Dec. 6, 2019 that while visiting Thailand, in an oblique reference to President Trump’s policies on the southern border, Pope Francis compared the policy of building border walls and refugee detention centers to the acts of King Herod. The pope said: “In other parts, there are walls that even separate children from parents. Herod comes to mind. Yet for drugs, there’s no wall to keep them out.”

Earlier, on Nov. 15, 2019 at the 20th World Congress of the International Association of Criminal Law in Rome, Pope Francis called “goverment leaders” who oppose homosexuality Hitler-like.

Calvin Freiburger reports for LifeSiteNews that Pope Francis said (the Vatican has published the original Italian here):

“It is not coincidental that at times there is a resurgence of symbols typical of Nazism. And I must confess to you that when I hear a speech (by) someone responsible for order or for a government, I think of speeches by Hitler in 1934, 1936. With the persecution of Jews, gypsies, and people with homosexual tendencies, today these actions are typical (and) represent ‘par excellence’ a culture of waste and hate. That is what was done in those days and today it is happening again.”

Although the Pope made his remarks in his “typically ambiguous” way “without specifying any particular politicians, movements, or regions,” the news media understood those remarks as a broad criticism of politicians who oppose the homosexual agenda. As an example, Reuters ran the headline, “Pope compares politicians who rage against gays to Hitler,” and cites as an example Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who told an interviewer he would rather have a dead son than a gay son.

LifeSiteNews‘ Freiburger points out that “While left-wing activists often compare conservatives and Christians to Nazis for their views on issues such as homosexuality, the Nazi regime in fact sought to supplant Christianity, and its persecution of homosexuals came from its views on Aryan population growth, not out of any Christian understanding of the nature of sex and sin.”

Freiburger also notes that “given the pope’s broader record on LGBT issues, his remarks may extend to world leaders who merely express disapproval of homosexuality and oppose the LGBT agenda.” Freiburger cites the following as pointing to Pope Francis’ partiality toward homosexuals:

  • He met with various LGBT individuals and pro-LGBT groups, including the notorious Jesuit priest James Martin, who has touted the meeting as an endorsement of his “ministering with LGBT Catholics.”
  • This summer, Pope Francis appointed Newark archbishop Cardinal Joseph Tobin, who has vocally dissented from Catholic teaching on homosexuality, to the Congregation for Catholic Education.
  • The pope has sent mixed messages on the permissibility of same-sex relationships. In an interview six months into his pontificate that began in 2013, he recommended that the Church pull back from her perceived emphasis on “abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods,” saying it is “not necessary to talk about these issues all the time.”

Peak Irony: Hollywood Reporter headline featuring TDS-infected actors says, “Anger is very easy – the other stuff feels difficult”

A lot of TDS in one photo…

You’ve got to give credit to the progressive Hollyweird actors: They have NO SENSE of self-awareness. Guess that’s because they aren’t paid for that specific skill.

Case in Point: A recent “Actor Rountable” from the Hollywood Reporter wherein progressive male actors (Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro, Jamie Foxx, Adam Sandler, Shia LeBouef and Adam Driver) share “emotional and funny conversations.”

Keep in mind the following posts/headlines about Hanks, LaBeouf and De Niro when you read their (scripted?) statements:

Tom Hanks in 2004: ‘Blackface,’ race jokes at fundraising auction
Tom Hanks’ disturbing Toddlers & Tiaras skit with 6-year-old ‘sexy baby
Shia LaBeouf Arrested at His Anti-Trump Protest
TDS-infected Robert De Niro screams at his driver because he went to the wrong spot
TDS: Robert De Niro and his foul mouth bash President Trump during award ceremony for high school students

Excerpts from the interview (videos below NSFW):

How did you switch from being a Marine to being an actor?

SHIA LABEOUF Never been in the military, but [acting] feels life-and-death to me. Every time, it feels like your neck is on the chopping block, every time. Just like boxing. Guys train really hard to go put their neck on the line.

Shia, what made you want to make Honey Boy?

LABEOUF My back was against the wall. I was nuclear at this point. It felt like survival, like there was no other way to go. I didn’t have a lot of people talking to me. I was in a mental institution. And I also had a doctor who was pushing me to explore these dirty parts and write them down.

Did you discover anything in that institution that helped your acting?

LABEOUF Yeah, empathy for my father, who was always the biggest villain in my life. And if you can empathize with the biggest villain in your life and scrape some of these shadows, it makes you lighter and freer. I don’t think I was leading with love, and my life has changed. And when you lead with lightness and love, you can get to the heavy easier, you know? It’s much easier, much more accessible. Anger and the rough shit is very easy — it’s the other stuff that feels quite difficult. Getting an honest laugh is very hard, very hard. I think some of the hardest stuff is the lightness.

Who’s most intimidated you?

DE NIRO As you get older, you don’t want to be intimidated by anybody who shouldn’t intimidate you. We’re in a political situation now where I feel that you must stand up to this. Because people are nonplussed. It’s like they say, “Did this guy just do that?” I don’t even know how to react to that because that’s not within my world of common sense or right and wrong. You’ve got to push him back, you’ve got to snuff him out. You’ve got to get rid of him. He has said, “I want to be president for life.” He’ll pardon himself. He’ll do anything. He’s just gotten worse and worse and worse and worse and we’ve got to get rid of him.

When Ellen DeGeneres went to the football game with President Bush, was that OK with you?

HANKS Not everybody should be political, but everybody must be principled. And we carry our principles with us 24 hours a day. And one of the things I learned from the get-go as an actor in a repertory company is, you didn’t have to like those people and you did not have to agree with those people, but you had to respect those people. And the default setting, I think, for so much of everything is conflict and cynicism.’

What Hollyweird Hypocrites.

Impeach-Trump Congressman Jerry Nadler drools

Rep. Jerrold “Jerry” Lewis Nadler (D-NY) has been in Congress (House of Representatives) for 27 years, since 1992.

Born into a Jewish family in Brooklyn, New York, Nadler is the chair of the House Juidiciary Committee that has been conducting the impeach-Trump “investigation” and hearings. On September 24, 2019, Rep. Lance Gooden (R-Texas) proposed a resolution to remove Nadler from his position as chairman of House Judiciary committee, accusing him of unlawfully beginning impeachment proceedings before the House has given the committee authorization.

At only 5’4″ in height, Nadler was morbidly obese, weighing 338 pounds. To lose weight, he had surgery to remove part of his stomach in 2002, and in 2003, had another surgery that bypassed a section of his small intestine, which resulted in a loss of more than 100 pounds. (AP)

Nadler is 72 years old, and has been seen napping during the House impeachment hearings.

He also drools.

At the impeachment hearing on Monday, December 9, 2019, Nadler, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, was caught on camera drooling. (H/t tweeter @CHIZMAGA)

Hey, you Demonrats. You must be so proud.

This womyn represents Culver City and parts of Los Angeles – the place where the homeless death rate has jumped by more than a third.

Instead of focusing on her sh*thole community, the congresswomen is – of course – intent on focusing on her TDS.

Obama violates Logan Act by undermining Trump administration with foreign governments

Former U.S. presidents had always strived to be apolitical after they left the office, especially when it comes to criticizing the present White House occupant.

But not Barack Obama.

Emmanuel of Three Percenter Nation points out that not only had Obama set up residence in Washington, D.C., just a few miles away from the White House, he has been doing all that he can to undermine President Trump and his administration by:

  • Taking jabs at Trump on everything from his policies to comparing him to Hitler.
  • Shadowing Trump across the world by going to the same places Trump had just visited, e.g., Trump’s first trip as president, the G20 Summit meeting in Germany, where Obama would slam the Trump administration.

As reported by Bloomberg in November 2017, Obama made a three-nation tour where:

  • In France, Obama told a “room full of French former ministers and CEOs” that “at the moment we have a temporary absence of American leadership” on climate change, but that, thankfully, “American companies and states and cities [are] continuing to work” to meet targets and stay on track.
  • In Shanghai, China, Obama said in a speech to “some 2,500 industry executives” of the Global Alliance of SMEs (SME=small and medium enterprises) that China-U.S. relations were the most consequential bilateral ties in the world, and dialogue was the only way to solve disagreements.
  • In India, Obama met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and addressed a leadership forum where, as reported by Mediaite, he took “some brutal dings against President Donald Trump,” saying: “And look, I’ve got 100 million Twitter followers. I actually have more than other people who use it more often. Think before you tweet.” Obama also met with China’s supreme leader Xi Jinping. Obama’s office said in a news release that Obama “forged a close and cooperative partnership with President Xi on issues ranging from growing the global economy to combating climate change.”

But what Obama has been doing is not simply breaking a tradition of former U.S. presidents being apolitical, he is in violation of a federal, albeit rarely enforced, law.

The law is the Logan Act, passed by the 5th U.S. Congress and enacted into law on January 3, 1799 as 1 Stat. 61318 U.S.C. § 953, which criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized American citizens with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States. The intent behind the Act is to prevent unauthorized negotiations from undermining the government’s position.

§ 953 of the Logan Act states that:

Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

Though rarely invoked or enforced, since 1975, the following individuals were accused of violating the Logan Act:

  • In 1975, Democrat Senators John Sparkman and George McGovern were accused of violating the Logan Act when they traveled to Cuba and met with officials there.
  • In 1984, President Ronald Reagan said Jesse Jackson may have violated the Logan Act by traveling to Cuba and Nicaragua and returning with several Cuban political prisoners seeking asylum in the United States, but Jackson was never indicted.
  • In 1987 and 1988, the Reagan administration considered using the Logan Act against Democrat House Speaker Jim Wright’s “intrusion” into the negotiations between Nicaragua’s Sandinista government and the Contras for a cease-fire in the long civil war, but nothing ever came of it.
  • In June 2007, Representative Steve King (R-Iowa) introduced legislation to prohibit Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from drawing on federal funds to travel to foreign states that the U.S. deemed to sponsor terrorism. King claimed that Pelosi’s dialogue with the Syrian government violated the Logan Act. King’s amendment was not adopted.
  • In July 2016, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack and several Democratic senators accused Donald Trump of violating the Logan Act by allegedly encouraging the Russian government to hack the email of Hillary Clinton.
  • In an op-ed in December 2017, University of Chicago Law School professors Daniel Hemel and Eric Posner argued that Michael Flynn violated the Logan Act in his dealings with the Russian ambassador during the Presidential transition of Donald Trump.
  • In April 2018, the Boston Globe speculated that former Secretary of State John Kerry might have violated the Logan Act by meeting with the Iranian Foreign Minister in order to ensure Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran — which the Trump administration opposes — remained more or less intact. Matthew Summers, a spokesman for Kerry, admitted that Kerry “urged Iran to keep its commitments under the Iran nuclear agreement”.

The real quid pro quo: Joe Biden brags of Obama administration withholding $1B aid unless Ukraine fired prosecutor investigating Joe’s son Hunter

Beginning in September 2019, House Democrats launched a formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump over “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella‘s accusation that Trump had issued a quid pro quo, i.e., a threat, to withhold military aid to Ukraine as a pressure tactic to force the Ukrainian government to investigate allegations that Joe Biden’s son Hunter benefited financially from the firing of that same Ukrainian prosecutor. 

Note: Quid pro quo is a Latin phrase which means an exchange of goods or services, in which one transfer is contingent upon the other; “a favor for a favor”.

President Trump did no such thing, as proven by the transcript of his phone call with Ukraine President Zelensky, which had been confirmed by Zelensky himself. See:

Nor is it improper for President Trump to ask the Ukrainian goverment to investigate possible corruption on the part of the Bidens. See “1998 US-Ukraine treaty on mutual assistance in criminal matters proves it’s another Democrat witch-hunt”.

Democrats have a predilection to psychological projection — accusing others of what something they themselves did or are doing.

It turns out that when he was Obama’s Vice President, Joe Biden threatened Ukraine’s then-President Petro Poroshenko that if he didn’t fire Ukraine’s State Prosecutor Viktor Shokin — who was investigating the founder of natural gas company Burisma Holdings, where Joe’s son Hunter Biden had a lucrative role on the board — Ukraine would not get a billion dollar loan guarantee from the United States.

Biden bragged about making that threat on January 23, 2018, on a panel at the Council on Foreign Relations panel.

Below is a video of Biden bragging about the quid pro quo, followed by the transcript of what he said.

Beginning at the 0:16 mark, the interviewer asks Biden:

“This [Trump] administration, unlike the [Obama] administration you worked in [as Vice President of the USA], decided to provide limited defense articles to Ukraine, do you think that was a wise decision and, more broadly, do you see any scope for any sort of a deal on eastern Ukraine?”

Biden replies (0:31 mark):

“The answer is yes, I think it was a wise decision. But then again, I was pushing that for two years before we left. So, and the reason is, I think, the more you upped the ante, the cost to Russia for their aggression, I mean as you all know this better than anybody, um, you know, the one big lie going on about Ukraine back in and and and the rest of Russia is that no Russian soldiers are engaged, they’re not dying, no body bags are coming home etc., because there’s overwhelming opposition on the part of the body politic and Russia for engagement in Ukraine in a military sense. Um, do I think the [inaudible] has potential to be solved, but it takes two things. One of those things is missing now, and that is I’m desperately concerned about the backsliding on the part of Kiev in terms of corruption. They made—I mean, I’ll give you one concrete example. I was—not I, but it just happened to be that was the assignment I got. I got all the good ones. And so I got Ukraine. And I remember going over, convincing our team, our leaders to—convincing that we should be providing for loan guarantees. And I went over, I guess, the 12th, 13th time to Kiev. And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from [President Petro] Poroshenko and from [Prime Minister Arseniy] Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t.

So they said they had—they were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, I’m not going to—or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said, you have no authority. You’re not the president, the president said. I said, call him.

(Audience laughter)

I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”

If YouTube takes down the video, you can watch it on the Wall Street Journal, here.

From Fox News, Oct. 2, 2019:

The fired prosecutor at the center of the Ukraine controversy said during a private interview with President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani earlier this year that he was told to back off an investigation involving a natural gas firm that was linked to Joe Biden’s son, according to details of that interview that were handed over to Congress by the State Department’s inspector general Wednesday.

Fox News obtained a copy of Giuliani’s notes from his January 2019 interview with fired Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin in which he claimed that his “investigations stopped out of fear of the United States.”

“Mr. Shokin attempted to continue the investigations but on or around June or July of 2015, the U.S. Ambassador Geoffrey R. Pyatt told him that the investigation has to be handled with white gloves, which according to Mr. Shokin, that implied do nothing,” the notes from the interview stated. The notes also claimed Shokin was told Biden had held up U.S. aid to Ukraine over the investigation.

Shokin was fired in April 2016, and his case was “closed by the current Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko,” according to the notes. Despite his claims, Shokin, on both sides of the Atlantic, had been widely accused of corruption.

First children are off limits: Unless you have an extreme case of TDS

My headline is for this post is subtle…and polite and kind.

Because what I really want to tell this “Constitutional Scholar” who made a joke at the expense of 13-year-old Barron Trump yesterday would be really, really inappropriate.

At the impeachment inquiry hearings the demorats had no evidence so they paraded a bunch of their cherry-picked “Constitutional Scholars” to educate us dumb-folk on what is grounds for impeaching President Trump.

The demorats thought it’d be a good idea to trot out the Ivy League Marxist lawyer Pamela Karlan.

About Professor Karlan, from Wikipedia: “…a professor of law at Stanford Law School. A leading legal scholar on voting rights and political process, she served as U.S. Deputy Assistant Attorney General for Voting Rights in the United States Department of Justice Civil Division from 2014 to 2015.”

What is not mentioned in Wikipedia’s page is that Professor Karlan is a biased, liberal womyn and partisan hack willing to take a shot at a 13-year-old boy because #OrangeManBad.

Watch her make a joke about President Trump’s son instead of addressing any ACTUAL crime our president may have committed:

Remember the good ‘ol days when “criticizing the ‘first children’ was off-limits. Yeah, good times.

You demorats are SUCH HYPOCRITES.

While this “scholarly” womyn attacks a 13-year-old boy (and her momma-bear First Lady Melania Trump who tries to protect her son) you demorats VICIOUSLY attack Melania.

This is to be expected from the “oh, so tolerant” left.

What petty, petty HYPOCRITES you are.
