Scientific authorities Biden, Pope meet to discuss climate                           

October 18, 2021

Neither Joe Biden, nearly 79, nor Pope Francis, soon to be 85, are scientists or medical doctors. They are both leftists, and as such are proponents of the debated issue known alternatively as climate change or global warming. Climate change is much preferred since it cuts a wider swath including global cooling, wildfires, droughts, floods or other phenomena that have been recorded throughout history. Francis gave an encyclical on ecology, declaring that climate change is real and mainly “a result of human activity.” The problem is urgent, he said. “Never have we so hurt and mistreated our common home as we have in the last two hundred years.”

The United States is just over two hundred years since its founding, making Francis’ words appear to be a pointed barb. Given that no nation was mechanized then, his time frame is more than odd. These two wizards will also discuss the Covid-19 pandemic.

The duo will meet at the Vatican Oct. 29 to discuss things over which they have no control, though it would seem the pope would use the opportunity to dissuade Catholic Biden from his pro-abortion stance, since a pro-life position is a basic tenant of the faith.

In June, the U.S. Catholic bishops overwhelmingly approved the drafting of a “teaching document” that many hope will rebuke Catholic politicians, including Biden, for receiving communion despite their support for the gruesome act of abortion.

But Biden and Francis are cunning liberals who are both more political than religious. Their agenda states the duo “will discuss working together on efforts grounded in respect for fundamental human dignity, including ending the COVID-19 pandemic. They must have missed that abortion permanently disrespects human dignity as preborn humans are brutally ripped from what should be the safety of their mother’s uterus.

When Argentine Francis came to the United States to address congress in 2015, he stopped first in Cuba, prioritizing his meeting with Communist dictators Fidel and Raul Castro, where they warmly conversed in Spanish and dined, like old amigos.

Arizona U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, a principled Catholic and conservative Republican, shunned Francis’ speech.


Hosp. staff using religious exemption to avoid vaccine must swear off OTC drugs

September 17, 2021

As he encouraged people to get vaccinated against Covid, Pope Francis sounded a lot like Jeb Bush on the topic of illegal immigration. Each of them called the actions they were encouraging an “act of love.”

Bush is now a former politician, remembered mostly for arrogantly sticking an exclamation point after his nickname during his failed presidential bid when the idea of a triadic dynasty proved to be more than even Republicans could tolerate. 

When there were calls to deny Biden communion due to his support of abortion, the pope bizarrely said that Catholic bishops should be pastors, not politicians. Apparently the pope excludes himself from that view, since he never hesitated to condemn Pres. Trump.

The Pope, known for interjecting himself into U.S. politics, and condemning the border wall that was being constructed on our southern border as “the greatest cruelty, to defend what?…” unconscionably comparing it to the Berlin wall that divided a German city, while conveniently disregarding the massive 50-foot-tall, ten-foot thick wall surrounding the fortress that is Vatican City, along with the Swiss Guard that function as its private military force.

We’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he likely was unaware the vaccines he was encouraging and thanking “God’s grace” for were created using fetal cell lines.

This comprehensive article provides background on the Arkansas hospital that is requiring all staff who claim a religious objection to also swear off taking commonly used, over-the-counter drugs that they allege (without proof) were developed using fetal cell lines. The list includes: Tylenol, Pepto Bismol, aspirin, Tums, Lipitor, Senokot, Motrin, ibuprofen, Maalox, Ex-Lax, Benadryl, Sudafed, albuterol, Preparation H, MMR vaccine, Claritin, Zoloft, Prilosec OTC, and azithromycin.


Pro-life riders of Lyft, Uber should reconsider: both linked to PP

September 5, 2021

Today we take our readers directly to National Review, whose headline declares, “Lyft to Donate $1M to Planned Parenthood, Pay Legal Fees for Drivers Sued under Texas Abortion Law.” Although Uber isn’t included in the headline, it is the third word in the first paragraph about the rideshare companies and their commitment to abortion.

Planned Parenthood (PP) is the largest abortion provider in the United States. It also endorsed Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election, despite the fact that Biden claims to be a practicing Catholic, and the Catholic Church is adamantly pro-life.

PP’s website isn’t just devoted to the wholesale slaughter of innocent life. It also is on the cutting edge of far-left politics, noting that “champions of reproductive health care are now in the White House.”  This is reprinted intact from its website on a page titled Living Our Values:
#Defund the Police

“As the country continues a long-overdue reckoning with systemic racism and the murders of Black people at the hands of police, Planned Parenthood stood alongside partners leading the fight for racial justice by supporting the call to #DefundThePolice and invest in community-based solutions, education and health care instead of militarizing police forces.”

The folks at Planned Parenthood have conveniently forgotten that their founder Margaret Sanger, a notorious eugenics proponent admired by Adolf Hitler, initially put her abortion mills — slyly known as ’birth control clinics”— in poor European immigrant, Jewish and black neighborhoods in the Brownsville area of Brooklyn, New York to control the number of children born to those she referred to as “inferior races and human weeds.” Her first “clinic” opened in 1916.

In an interesting connection, so-called “Mr. Conservative” Barry Goldwater and his wife, Margaret, known as “Peggy,” who died in 1985, were longtime friends of Margaret Sanger. PP named its highest award in Peggy’s honor. The Goldwater’s advocacy helped launch and sustain ‘The Mother’s Health Clinic,’ which became the largest provider of women’s “reproductive healthcare” in Arizona, later becoming the abortion facility known as Planned Parenthood of Central and Northern Arizona.


Catholic Bishops vote to rebuke pro-abortion Biden

June 20, 2021

Although abortion is in direct contradiction with the pro-life teachings of the Catholic Church, Pres. Joe Biden attempts to straddle the issue by asserting himself as a “pro-choice” Catholic.

The “choice,” is, of course, the taking of an innocent, pre-born human life.

Biden is so committed to abortion, he even selected Ron Klain, an outspoken pro-abortion activist to serve as his White House chief of staff.

The Christian Post reported in June 2018, shortly after Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, Klain took to Twitter to ask people to follow “our great leaders.” One of the “great leaders” cited by Klain is Ilyse Hogue, the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, a prominent pro-abortion advocacy organization. NARAL prefers the sanitized abbreviated version of its name, which is actually National Abortion Rights Action League. The group would oppose any pro-life Supreme Court replacement

There’s no mystery surrounding Biden’s selection of Klain as chief of staff. Asserting the right to slaughter pre-born babies is a unifying issue for leftists.

The Catholic Church, however, views life as sacred, which presents a conundrum for far-left Biden, while the church remains consistent in its teachings.  In a critical rebuke, the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights lists 32 distinct departures from Catholic teachings by the policies of President Biden.  It’s worth your time to review them.

The faithfully pro-life U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) voted overwhelmingly to draft a formal document on the meaning of the Eucharist after a serious debate on whether President Biden and other Catholic politicians who support abortion policies are worthy of receiving Communion at Mass.

More than 73% of the U.S. Bishops casting ballots at the recent virtual conference supported tasking the USCCB’s doctrine committee to draft language on maintaining consistency with the Eucharist. A section of the document is expected to include a specific admonition to Catholic politicians and other public figures who defy church teaching on abortion and other core doctrinal issues.

The vote tally announced Friday was 168 bishops in favor, 55 opposed and six bishops abstaining.

This Catholic Vote survey conducted June 1 – 8, 2021, shows that Catholic respondents expect more from Catholic elected officials than they’re getting.


Target stores peddling anti-white, racist prayer book

April 10, 2021

In 2015, many customers stopped shopping in Target stores due to their newly installed transgender policies that included welcoming transgender bathrooms, where your young daughter might have the opportunity to share facilities with a biological man wearing a dress using a urinal in plain sight.

The  stores also made the corporate decision to un-gender, or as this press release noted, “phase out gender-based signage” in the toy aisles that previously had arrays of trucks and other toys preferred by boys as well as those carrying dolls for girls and bedding displays of sheets with cowboys and spacemen or Cinderella and flowers, intermingled instead of specifically designated “boys” or “girls,” for ease in shopping.

But there’s more…guaranteed to make reasonable people fume. Veronica Hays, writing for Media Research Center’s NewsBuster’s, exposes a gem of a devotional Target carries in its book section. The article is headlined, ‘Dear God, Help Me To Hate White People’: Target Sells Racist ‘Devotional.’ Read the complete exposé, including this featured prayer:

“Dear God, Please help me to hate White people. Or at least to want to hate them” is the depraved supplication offered to the Almighty in an entry of a recently published devotional.

On April 3, a woman picked up this prayer book while she was shopping at Target. The devotional book, titled “A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal” is number one on Amazon’s Christian Meditation Worship & Devotion section and is a New York Times bestseller.

In today’s world, this irrationality makes sense. Dennis Prager’s best selling books in the Rational Bible series are unworthy of mention on the New York Times best sellers list.


Joyous Easter wishes…

April 4, 2021

and the flawed advisability of mixing leftist politics and religion

On this holiday we are taking the unusual step of including a thought provoking editorial by Wayne Allyn Root, posted today on Townhall. Regardless of your religion, we recommend, “An Important Easter Sunday Message for the Catholic Church, Major League Baseball and Delta Airlines.” It could be any church and the thrust of the message would be the same, though this specifically exposes the duplicity of Father Milton Ryan, a priest at Holy Trinity Church in Dallas, Texas.


Media cover-up: Colo. supermarket killer was a Syrian-born Muslim

March 24, 2021

Colorado massacre spurs Dem’s renewed gun control efforts

Within hours of the Boulder, Colorado deadly supermarket shooting that killed ten people including a police officer who was the father of seven, democrats on Capitol Hill began using the tragedy to launch Second Amendments rights restrictions.

The shooter, described by the networks as “another white male” is actually Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, a Syrian-born Muslim. The leftwing local newspaper blandly headlines the mass murderer Alissa as “a 21-year-old Colorado man.” Mentioning that he is a Muslim from Syria doesn’t fit its narrative.

His family is already working on providing an alibi, saying Alissa is delusional and believed people were following or chasing him, which they claim may have contributed to the shootings. A former high school classmate said Alissa, then on the school’s wrestling team, told fellow teammates he was going to kill all of them, but, “no one believed him or did anything about it.”  Surely they must have heard about the Columbine High School massacre and the Aurora theater carnage, both of which occurred in Colorado.

In Washington, D.C., Sen. Chuck Schumer declared he was already committed to sending a universal background check bill to the U.S. Senate. Joe Biden is said to be considering signing another executive action, that restricts the rights of law abiding gun owners — bypassing congress. So desperate are they to curtailing our constitutional freedoms, they could run the two items concurrently.

For a memory jogger, check out this 2012 SRAZ post  titled, “Them Dem Hypocrites,” which comes complete with photos of leading Second Amendment restrictionists and their guns. Chuck Schumer is featured. Barack Obama is pictured with his rifle in the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

When she was Barack Obama’s Homeland Security chief, Janet Napolitano the far-left former Arizona governor, issued a scathing Department of Homeland Security report identifying American returning military vets as  “Right-wing extremists” who pose national security threats. Napolitano claimed, “Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to right-wing extremists.”  It’s still available and can be read under the link


2020: Sending joyous Christmas wishes to our readers

December 25, 2020

May the peace and goodwill of this season be with us all. We express our gratitude to our service personnel, many stationed far from their own families, who ensure our countless freedoms and ask for blessings on President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania, and their entire family.

There’s no denying this has been an unprecedented year, dealing with a deadly global virus that has taken the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans, and negatively impacting the historically best economy our nation has seen. For the first time ever, we have witnessed an election many consider fraudulent, based on numerous questionable practices brilliantly enumerated here by Patrick Basham.

We pray that 2021 will not continue to challenge us, and God shines his blessings on America.

Enjoy Christmas Eve.


Rush Limbaugh sends love, Christmas wishes in final show of 2020

December 24, 2020

As his fans are all too aware, Rush Limbaugh announced Feb. 3, that he had been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.

The following night, during the State of the Union address, President Trump awarded the obviously surprised Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom, (brief video) which First Lady Melania Trump seated beside him, placed around his neck. The president thanked the radio host for his longtime charity work and “decades of tireless devotion to our country.”

Rush Limbaugh’s influence was immediate from his first nationally syndicated show August 1, 1988. He paved the way for conservative talk radio to lead on AM radio.

It is with our profound gratitude to Limbaugh’s impact on the thinking of so many that we direct our readers to, “What Rush Limbaugh’s life says about eternity,” by Richard Jack Rail. The author says of Rush Limbaugh, “He has pointed millions of Americans back to the path we ought never have left.” According to EIB (Excellence in Broadcasting) the number is 43 million daily.

Watch the opening of his Dec. 23 show, the last of this year, as he wishes “Merry Christmas everybody…I love you all.”

His grateful audience loves him back and wishes him and his wife, Kathryn, a Merry Christmas and many blessings in return.
