What did Newt Gingrich pay for his three Annulments? – Benedict XVI’s Chosen Catholic U.S. Prez Candidate?

(Look Callista. No tears. I am trading up to Monica Lewinsky.)


I may be dense (stupid) or lazy in my research but I cannot find out how fast or how much Candidate Gingrich paid to get the three annulments from Civil Marriage in order to marry his present Catholic wife in the RCC.

I get a lot of non-information in the Lame Lame Lame Street Media on this. I get the opinion that he doesn’t have to annul civil marriages not in the RCC? That has changed?

I did not marry in the RRC twenty odd years ago because the church wanted $2,500 to annul my wife’s previous ceremony at City Hall in NYC - a lot of money back then that we could not spare - that and time, months and months, perhaps years to annul what in Grade School, the Nuns said was not valid to begin with.

BTW, since Catholics are the only validly married Christians in the eyes of God, meaning to this day all Protestants are still Bastards because their parents did not have a Catholic marriage etc. – why should the freakin Catholic church even care if Gays and Lesbians will be satisfied by a civil marriage at city hall????

Since civil marriage does not count in the eyes of Holy Mother Church, why the f*ck so much fuss over gay marriage if after all the gays and us Prots are damned to hell anyway in their eyes, civil marriage or not?

Hypocrisy to the nth degree in the RCC?

Getting back to Newt.  How fast and how much did Cardinal Wuerl? get to grease Newt’s marriage into heaven worthy status.

This is the kind of Religious Liberty only for the RCC that Bishop Lori keeps bitchin about on Capitol Hill. 

Martin Luther had a word for this modern day equivalent to selling indulgences - quickie Annulments for the Rich.

Abomination!

This kind of shit started the Protestant Reformation.
 
Hey Newt.  How big will the new Papal Palace on the Mall Ellipse, blocking the view of the Jefferson Memorial, how big and expensive and paid for out of the Pentagon’s budget will it be, once the RCC gets you into the White House?

Inquiring minds want to know.

All People = Zero - on all Corporate Spreadsheets* – (People are Obsolete)

* People = Obsolete = Zero (the new global equation)


People = Zero.

People are Obsolete.

Get with the program all you losers at Occupy Wall Street.

Corporations are now the only REAL “Persons” in this world with the only rights.

Thus spake SCOTUS. (Bow your heads oh lowly zeros.)

All other former persons - "people" equal zero on all corporate spreadsheets.

Capitalism trashes humanity.  News at 11.

Humanity is erased from the equation. People = Zero

Corporations Are Not People! - Only People Are People!

Corporations are NOT people.  Only People can be People.

To let Corporations have human rights is to take the Human out of Human-ity.

To lose humanity is the end of the human race and human culture. 

What is left from that de-humanized equation are only corporations and robots.

Diagonal view to Ground Zero - World Trade Center

Zero Liberty Plaza NYC – that’s my Address – for the park next to One Liberty Plaza, the corporate capitalist building and diagonal from Ground Zero – World Trade Center, New York, NY.


Lots of confusion to some.  Perhaps only to me.  But before ZLP NYC became Zucchini Park or whatever it was Liberty Plaza Park in the Seventies and Eighties and beyond.

I think its planetary significance and or symbolism at this moment in time makes it synchronistic to both Wall Street, two blocks away, and Ground Zero, diagonal to the Park.  Maybe one day it will be just simply be called People’s Park. 

Whatever.


Liberty Plaza Park, Zuccotti Park, (Zero) Liberty Plaza on the above map is touched by the bottom half of the letters “RES” in “FED RESERVE BANK". The Park is bordered by Trinity Pl/Church St., Liberty Street, Broadway and Cedar Street.

And the river opens for the righteous (5 times) 
Someday 

I was walking with my brother 
And he wondered what's on my mind 
I said what I believe in my soul 
Ain't what I see with my eyes 
And we can't turn our backs this time 
I am a patriot 
And I love my county 
Because my country is all I know 
I want to be with my family 
The people who understand me 
I've got nowhere else to go 

And the river opens for the righteous 
And the river opens for the righteous 
And the river opens for the righteous 
Someday 
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/j/jackson+browne/i+am+a+patriot_20068696.html ] 
And I was talking with my sister 
She looked so fine 
I said, "baby, what's on your mind? " 
She said, "i want to run like the lion 
Released from the cages 
Released from the rages 
Burning in my heart tonight" 

And I ain't no communist 
And I ain't no capitalist 
And I ain't no socialist 
And I ain't no imperialist 
And I ain't no democrat 
And I ain't no republican 
I only know one party 
And it is freedom 

I am, I am, I am 
I am a patriot 
And I love my country 
Because my county is all I know 

And the river opens for the righteous

Glass Wax Christmas - Harrowgate - Philly - 1950s



My early memories of Christmas put it starting about two weeks before the holiday in the late 1950's. 

The Department stores: Lit Brothers, Gimbels, Stawbridge and Clothier and the top end carriage trade store John Wanamaker all started things the day after Thanksgiving. Going to downtown Philadelphia was an outing for us kids and we came downtown using the elevated train, the Frankford El. The trip was more window shopping than buying. 

The close to home activities would begin in earnest about two weeks before the holiday. No doubt Christmas budgeted items came out of the weekly paychecks closest to December 25th. 

Recycled items such as a flat plastic sheet, nativity scene, for the upstairs bedroom window came out of the cedar chest along with foil covered paper-mache bells for two living room windows and a plastic Santa's head with an internal light went on the outside of the front door. Single candle sticks were in each window on the front of the row house and with a single blue bulb each. 

The lighting of the window lights was a sacred nightly ritual.

One innovation or marketing gimmick I remember was the use of stencils on the windows with a glass cleaning product called Glass Wax. The product was to be spread on windows, let to dry, and then wiped clean with a dry cloth weeks later after Christmas. In this holiday use, you would sponge the opaque pink liquid onto Christmas type stencils of angels, Santa Claus, a snowman and a reindeer etc. It was all very primitive in terms of marketing but magic in terms of a hands-on participating childhood.





I don’t know when others bought real live Christmas trees but we bought ours as close to Christmas eve as a day or two and it sat in the yard until Christmas eve when the older kids got to stay up late and decorate it with blue glass balls and a single string of blue lights. The only thing not blue was a gold glass beaded garland that wrapped the tree from head to foot. That and metal, not plastic, silver icicle strands. 

In any case the house smelled of a pine tree that had been cut only days before and traveled from upstate.

We did not have or want those new Sputnik Trees, all artificial aluminum branches and serenaded with a rotating multi-colored light. That was the kind of tree that older people without children went in for. 


Of course I had my doubts how Santa would get to every house in the world – I was already thinking globally. I accepted the facts as my parents relayed them. Santa may come in person but more than likely we would get a surrogate, a Santa’s helper and making deliveries out of an old Nash automobile (they had big interiors). That was how it all worked according to my parents in order to insure my ever growing questions about this whole scenario. 

My most vivid memory was waking up at about five a.m., it still being dark, and looking down the stairs at the blue ornamented tree that was not there when I went to bed. The tree stood in the dark with a strange glow of street lights coming through open blinds and muted with a glow of light off a recent snow fall. 

I remember the excitement of opening presents. Turkey dinner was not a big deal. 

The big deal was the imagination and anticipation and the thoughts of magical myth that gripped a young child’s mind of five.

1 Peter 2:8 – Psalm 2 - USCCB



 "A stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall." They stumble because they disobey the message--which is also what they were destined for.”  1 Peter 2:8

Psalm 2

 1Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

 2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

 3Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

 4He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.

 5Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

 6Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

 7I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

 8Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

 9Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

 10Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

 11Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

 12Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

USCCB – Bully Pulpit – U.S. Catholic Bishops - Lobbying War on Women and Gays continues…$$$ 26 millions worth

(Father Charles Coughlin Bishop William Lori)

$26,000,000 in bribes, fees paid by the USCCB, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, is a lot of chump change, a lot of little old ladies’ dollar bills in the collection plate on Sunday, to lobby Congress with in the ongoing discriminatory war on women and war on gays. 

Recently, I took note of a back-and-forth between Michael Sean Winters and Tom Roberts at National Catholic Reporter, in which Roberts calls into question a persistent meme of Winters' reporting on behalf of the U.S. Catholic bishops.  Roberts notes that Winters's defense of the bishops depends on asserting and re-asserting that Catholics are under "attack" today in secular culture, and that anti-Catholicism in American culture lingers on and feeds the "attacks" Catholics are experiencing. 
Roberts doubts the viability of this meme of anti-Catholic attack when, as he notes, Catholics are "liberally sprinkled" all through "the most powerful quarters" of the nation's political and economic life.  And when the Supreme Court is dominated by (conservative) Catholics.
And now this piece of information comes down the pike, and I think it's going to be even harder for the U.S. Catholic bishops and their centrist spokespersons to keep the victim meme alive: the Pew Forum has just released a report showing that the USCCB ranks number two of all faith-based lobbying groups in D.C., with $26,662,111 (and see Kevin Clarke at America on the Pew report) spent on lobbying activities in 2009.  That's a hefty chunk of change for a victimized little old minority group suffering societal persecution to have at its disposal to try to wheedle and cajole legislators to do its faith-based bidding.


Men Behind the War on Women
A group of men with no real background in law or medicine, but blessed with a strong personal interest in women’s bodies, have quietly influenced all of the major anti-abortion legislation over the past several years. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops may be one of the quietest, yet most powerful lobbies on Capitol Hill, with political allies that have enabled them to roll back decades of law and precedent.
Over the past two years the GOP-controlled House of Representatives has launched one of the most extreme assaults on women's choice the U.S. has seen in decades. Republicans voted twice to slash federal family planning funds for low-income women, moved to prevent women from using their own money to buy insurance plans that cover abortion, introduced legislation that would force women to have ultrasounds before receiving an abortion and, most recently, passed a bill that will allow hospitals to refuse to perform emergency abortions for women with life-threatening pregnancy complications.
But the erosion of women's rights didn't begin with the GOP takeover. President Barack Obama's health care reform law contained some of the most restrictive abortion language seen in decades.
 Lift the curtain, and behind the assault was the conference of bishops.
 In the 1930s, Catholic demagogue Father Charles Coughlin never dreamed of the power that the RCC in America now has, can acquire simply by buying it, here in the future.


But beware bishops:

“St. Irenaeus of Lyon warned early Christians that we’ve been sent like sheep into the midst of wolves. The moment we become wolves ourselves, we lose.” - - Bp. Charles Chaput

Catholic Sharia Upheld Wash.,D.C. - Cardinal Wuerl Lawsuit - Separation of Sexes - Discrimination Muslims

Interesting article about a discrimination lawsuit down in D.C. regarding separation of the sexes:
The D.C. Office of Human Rights (OHR) has dismissed the complaint filed by George Washington University law professor John F. Banzhaf III in response to The Catholic University of America’s single-sex housing policy, affirming the University’s position that the law does not require men and women to be housed together in residence halls. 
and discrimination against Muslims at Catholic University.  Yeah their tuition money is good but they just don't understand that minorities in America are supposed to keep their heads down and suck it up.
Banzhaf’s complaint about single sex residence halls is the first of two that he has lodged this year against the University. He filed a second complaint in October against Cardinal Donald Wuerl, archbishop of Washington and University chancellor, charging that Catholic University has been engaging in discrimination against its Muslim students. The University has yet to receive any official notification from the OHR that it intends to move forward with adjudicating the second complaint.
Like Bishop Lori has said, this "Religious Liberty" culture war to establish Catholic Sharia in the U.S. has come into the legal stages of the battle of that war.

"Religious Liberty" War on Secularism - Bishop William Lori


How has the secularization of American culture fueled these legal and legislative challenges to religious freedom? 
The erosion of religious liberty is first a cultural issue, then a legal issue. It has been going on for a long time. Some philosophers, social scientists and others in a position to influence culture have long regarded religion not only as absurd but also as the source of much societal and personal unhappiness. Their views have not remained confined to the academy but have become popularized through the media and entertainment industries and, over time, have been reflected in laws, judicial decisions and administrative rules. As the great constitutional lawyer Learned Hand once said, if liberty dies in the hearts of men and women, “no constitution, no law, no court, can save it.” 
The Church, “an expert in humanity,” must strive to transform the culture. In this sense, the defense of religious liberty is very much a part of the New Evangelization, which is very much a theme of this pontificate. In proclaiming the Gospel afresh and in bearing witness to the Gospel with renewed conviction, we must seek, in God’s grace, to heal the rift between the Gospel and an aggressively secular culture.

Cardinal Burke Fears Arrest - Persecution of American Catholics in U.S. that bad under Obama


Quote of the Day:

In fact, Cardinal Burke said he believes persecution may be looming for the U.S. Church.
“Yes, I think we’re well on the way to it,” he said, pointing to areas of social outreach – such as adoption and foster care – where the Church has had to withdraw rather than compromise its principles.
This trend could reach a point where the Church, “even by announcing her own teaching,” is accused of “engaging in illegal activity, for instance, in its teaching on human sexuality.”
Asked if he could envision U.S. Catholics ever being arrested for preaching their faith, he replied: “I can see it happening, yes.”

Day 31 - Year 152 A.D. (After Darwin)

The year is flying along.  The first month of the year just disappeared.

I believe we should use the European way of calculating, depicting a date. Today is 1-2-152 A.D.

Calling America, E.L.O.


Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Pope Benedict XVI – Moral Leader? - Rockstar? - Commodity Prince? – Mafia King?



My personal meme here, for my regular readers, has been to call Benedict XVI - Joe the Pope.  This goes back to the 2008 election when some jerk in the crowd talks to candidate Obama complaining about how much taxes he is paying in his plumbing business etc.  

That jerk was really a part time handyman named Joe and the name got stuck in the MSM as Joe the Plumber, an opportunity for a burlesque illustrating both the rancor contempt that the GOP has for the lazy welfare/wage slave class and satire of a fake posing as a real businessman not unlike most tax cheat business people that seem to be the backbone of the GOP party these days.

Both Joe the Plumber and Joe the Business Man do nothing in the way of improving the America economy except to cheat on their taxes and complain about everything else.  A true form of American Commodity.  Like the Air Supply song – making “something” (commodity) “…out of nothing at all”.

Anyway, another personal meme here is to call the pope a “Rockstar”.  Of course I started writing this blog after that thug Polish General Karol Wojtvla (Voy-Tee-Wa) went to Crony Perogie Heaven and so I only have a half-assed German scholar, who used to salute Schicklgruber, to pick on in the way of calling him, Joe the Pope – a “Rockstar”.  (sarcasm takes intelligence to generate and to understand and comes from the very dark comedy of our souls)

Somewhere along the timeline the Commodity of Morality, once thought or pretended to be embodied in Canon Law or whatever got turned into a PR asset I think, that unfortunately nobody now wants to buy anymore in that old fashioned obsolete package.  How do you spell Model T Ford?

The American Culture Wars, today turn on Paul VI going against the 90% of his Advisors against Humanae Vitae, into accepting it after being pussy whipped by the Polish Archbishop General Wojtvla (Voy-tee-wa) by turning Birth Control into a commodity of fear that would work well for his agenda behind the Iron Curtain to contain his sheep, build a Polish Catholic Army of Resistance against Marx’s religion etc.  

That Iron Curtain agenda decision did work for him, but it was not what was needed in a modern enlightened emerging global world, in then first world America and Europe.

So we have to live with the mistakes of Paul VI, Karol the Rockstar and now Joe the Pope.

"If it should be decided that contraception is not an evil in itself then we should have to concede frankly that the Holy Spirit is on the side of the Protestant Churches.” KJW

In some very ancient sense when the Holy Spirit and Sofia ("Wisdom" - fourth member of an overcrowded trinity) were still the feminine balance to the consubstantial male thing of Jesus and his Father, the RCC of the 1960s perhaps saw both Protestantism and the Holy Spirit as the enemy, the feminine thing?

Somehow the suppression of the Catholic female vagina, (the Holy Spirit?), the woman by the male only hierarchy was seen as the right way of doing things.  And, for an institution that tries to sell natural law as paramount, where did this inequality of sex come from.  Not nature. Male and female of most every species alive share responsibility equally for the welfare of the young or the protection of the community in general.  

This weird Catholic sexual imbalance meme probably came more from the twisted all male, alpha male game, barracks attitude of Constantine’s Army of “Christ”.

It is disheartening to me that the eighteenth century mind of Karol Wojtvla got sold as a modern commodity worthy of modern derivative investment by the West.  He was after all not the typical holy card Italian pope.  He was after all a resistance fighter against the Nazis or so he said.  He was after all in resistance against the evil of Marx even though Marx indirectly signed off on his church promotions.  

I don’t know about you but somehow this eighteenth century church mind got sold as some sort of enlightenment prince like Frederick the Great or whomever and the American PR Commodity MSM machine made him a Rockstar, just like Saint Ronny Reagan. Whatever.

Joe the Pope had to follow in his footsteps.  Big footsteps of someone who might have been a double agent both for the KGB and the CIA in his megalomaniac self-serving lifetime.  Whatever again.

In the meantime, all JPII's appointments of Crony bootlicking bishops worldwide, were made IMO to recreate whatever century it was in which “Poland was Great?”. 

That delusion is still in progress as all faithful Catholics worldwide are now supposed to forget Vatican II and surrender their last vestiges of conscience and intelligence to the male moral commodity factor, wearing dresses.  In addition to, in similar fashion, the Oligarchs who are now demanding the surrendering of all middle class wealth and comfort  to re-establish the eighth century when Charlemagne “ruled” what was left of the old Roman Empire.

Please ignore reality folks, close your eyes and merge into the desired delusion the new Fascist New World Order of things. Not me buddy. Kindly - f*ck you and f*ck the horse you rode into town on - with that bullshit.

Medieval Europe is not all the Oligarchs and Rockstar Popes and half-assed German Scholars crack it up to be.

I have heard this rumor from Catholics. Benedict wants to re-establish the Holy Roman Empire. Yeah right?

And how do you do that pray tell.  Through banking and the collapse of the Euro?  One has to wonder how much trouble a rogue state like the Vatican can rain down on the rest of humanity with moral terrorism or mere currency manipulations and money laundering.  

This is even too paranoid for even me to imagine that the Vatican Franc will be the standard currency of Europe in the decades ahead. And then again, I could be wrong.

For Joe and his crony bishops, Pharaoh’s Stewards, waiting for the impossible to happen, just sit back, manipulate the currency, the commodity, the illusion of moral superiority, rule over a vast non-taxable worldwide crime empire, and don’t talk about the self-hating nature of your core sexual personality.

For the rest us – hide your kids.

Have a nice day.
