“Immediately following her loss to Harriet Hageman in Wyoming’s Republican primary, Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., unveiled her next move, launching a new organization with the primary goal of keeping former President Trump from regaining the presidency.
“The group, called The Great Task, gets its name from a phrase in the Gettysburg Address, and Cheney invoked President Lincoln in calling for the Republican Party to go back to its roots.
“We’ve to get this party back to the principles and values on which it was founded,” Cheney said in an interview with NBC’s “Today Show” Wednesday morning, claiming that it has lost its way in focusing too much on Trump…
“Cheney is the final Republican who voted to impeach former President Trump to face a primary election. Among the other nine GOP representatives to vote in favor of Trump’s impeachment, only two will be on the ballot in November.
…”Epikeia (again, a virtue according to St. Thomas Aquinas) requires we put common sense ahead of legalism. St. Thomas is obviously not saying “the greater good” can be used to say that the end justifies the means. Rather, when applied correctly, epikeia leads to extremely clear conclusions on Church and State today: No prelate can obliterate the ancient Mass. No bishop can say you can’t receive Holy Communion on the tongue in fear of a flu with a 99.92% survival rate. No priest can be suspended for preaching orthodoxy even under the pretext that such orthodoxy is “disobedient” (as happened to a priest friend of mine in Texas.) No government can say you must take an experimental drug. No Cardinal-in-white can say it’s okay to worship a pagan demon-god like a Pachamama. Nobody can be arrested and placed in solitary confinement for walking into an open Capital building on January 6th. No diocesan tribunal can end a valid marriage.
“Of course, the neo-con non-trad would reply to all of this: “Well, who is to determine what is a just command if not your superiors in Church and State?” The answer is quite simple: St. Thomas Aquinas and all saints believed every person to have access to common-sense, and if any order were to go against common-sense, it is probably to be ignored.
“In fact, all of those controversies two paragraphs up go against both common sense and the Catholic Magisterium or the US Constitution. Therefore, there is no law against them. Common-sense is indeed a part of our discernment of obedience, for we Catholics have always believed in the marriage of faith and reason, not an arbitrary and capricious obedience as found in Islam. We priests must be obedient to God and—at a distant second—to our bishops’ just commands. But when there is a rub between the two, we must obey God rather than man, for there’s a hierarchy of obedience.
“And when an infiltration of the Church and State has taken place at such a deep level as of today, the ones making the unjust commands will ironically label as “outlaws” those holding to St. Thomas and the classic Magisterium of the Catholic Church. But we know at the end of the day, as the Apostle said, it is for freedom that Christ has set us free.“
THE ASSUMPTION OF THEBLESSED VIRGIN MARY DOUBLE, FIRST CLASS / WHITE The dogma of the Assumption is the answer of the Church to a materialistic world. It implicitly states that the perfection of our faculties and bodily skills will be fully exercised only in heaven, where they attain fulfillment in contemplating God. The Assumption was the moment of creation’s fulfillment, the first-fruit of God’s plan for mankind — a plan which includes our own appearance, body and soul, before the throne of God. May the Immaculate Mother of God and our co-redeemer, in the new glory of this revelation, focus the mind of the world on the true aim of progress toward the goal of union with the Creator of the universe.https://tridentine-mass.blogspot.com/2022/08/the-assumption-of-blessed-virgin-mary.html
GOSPEL Luke 1:41-50 At that time, Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost. And she cried out with a loud voice and said: “Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy. And blessed art thou that hast believed, because those things shall be accomplished that were spoken to thee by the Lord.” And Mary said: “My soul doth magnify the Lord. And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid: for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Because he that is mighty hath done great things to me: and holy is his name. And his mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear him.”
WHERE: Immaculata Church project site 701 North 2nd Street, St. Marys, KS 66536
WHEN: Saturday, September 10 at 10:00AM
WHAT: Laying the cornerstone & consecrating our five liturgical bells in front of the Immaculata
This outdoor event (approximately half an hour in length) will take place on the front west plaza of The Immaculata and will be followed by a limited “open house” visit of the interior of the church which is still under construction.
Bells have been employed in Catholic churches throughout the centuries to mark the hours of prayer and to call the faithful into the church. It is most fitting, given their sacred purpose, that special attention be devoted to the rites of their consecration.
Since very early times, bells have been historically associated with divine worship. It became customary to “baptize” them, assigning them the names of patron saints and with godparents. Once the bells are blessed, they become consecrated for divine worship and are elevated to the dignity of sacramentals.
The Immaculata will have five bells, crafted by the Paccard Foundry in Annecy, France. They will be given the names:
Maria Immaculata: this will be the main bell of the church and weighs 7,716 lbs
Sts. Benedict and Scholastica: who are the patrons against wicked spirits and against storms
St. John the Baptist: which will be used for calling the faithful to Mass
St. Gabriel: will be used for the Angelus
St. Lazarus: will be used as the death knell
More about the bells can be found on our website here.
Towards the end of the ceremony, the cornerstone of the Immaculata will be laid at the entrance of the church. This stone is marked with the Marian crossed-M symbol which will be found as a theme throughout the church, together with the date of installation, MMXXII (2022).

point 2 has long been shown to be false as well and it appears that even the CDC is no longer willing to make this attestation.
this is a very big deal because the spike protein produced by these vaccines is FAR more dangerous in a great many ways than the spike from covid itself and this is even more true today when compared to more moderate variants like omicron.
the vaccines are highly CG enriched and this is a strong reason to presume that having them linger around for long periods will increase the risk of, accelerate, or outright cause cancer, heart damage, and a number of other extreme ill effects.
lots of folks have been standing on chairs screaming about this for ages. it seems implausible that the CDC has not heard them.
unfortunately, it looks increasingly plausible that the CDC is trying to prevent the data from getting out as they try to step away from they claims of systemic safety.
this newfound rescission finds deeply uneasy consonance with the fact so ably and consistently pointed out by longtime gatopal™ ethical skeptic in so many threads:
the CDC has stopped reporting on cancers (malignant neoplasms) and a variety of heart disorders.
it’s been 71 days since this “went offline” for “system upgrades.”
and now, they pull the claim that mRNA and spike proteins from the vaccines (the exact thing that would cause this) are rapidly cleared from the body.
that’s a worrying confluence and starts to feel like an agency whose credibility is already in deep trouble playing “hide the ball.”
this sure seems like the folks that would have the data changing their tune but not telling anyone why.
how is this not suppressing information and staring right at the floorboards where the body is buried?
enquiring gatos would like to know.
the CDC has made claim after claims about these products that has been proven false.
they will stop transmission and be a dead end for the virus. injected material stays local. side effects are minor and transitory. 2 doses is fully vaccinated. the list goes on and on.
sure, mRNA therapeutics have been studied for decades, but we also failed to adopt any.
we did not use them because they were so ineffective and so dangerous.
these products were literally abandoned as oncology treatment because they were too toxic.
this idea that some longstanding body of work that makes them well characterized and safe in humans has untrue since the beginning and most of it was rank speculation on the basis of NO studies, especially around bio-distribution to organs and duration of residence in them and the body which is, of course, a big part of cancer, heart, liver, ovary, testes, and auto-immune risk.
quietly removed key safety claims from their website
stopped reporting cancer and heart data that seems directly related to that claim
and kept doubling down on the need to vaccinate and claims of safety despite so many other governments and health agencies stepping back from booster claims, admitting they made a mistake ever vaccinating children at all, and banning future jabs for under 18’s.
this is not public health, it’s public manipulation.
and some seriously pointy questions about “just whose side is this agency on?” and “precisely what role are they trying to fulfill these days?” appear more than warranted.
Heretic filmmaker Mikki Willis has compiled a thirteen-minute video which bluntly and explicitly documents the deeply disturbing modern parable of collusion between US Health and Human Service elites, corporate media, the medical-pharmaceutical industrial complex, and big tech to block the use of Ivermectin in the US and developed western nations for treating COVID-19 disease. Although currently embargoed for general distribution, since various clips featuring my own comments over time are included in the montage, I received a copy early this morning together with a request that I not circulate but quickly review for technical accuracy.
As happened when I first reviewed Robert F. Kennedy Juniors’ book “The Real Anthony Fauci”, I was (and still am) deeply affected by the video.
I have lived through Ivermectin propaganda and active blocking of COVID early treatment options over the past two years, have traveled and testified with Drs. Peter (McCullough), Paul (Marik) and Pierre (Kory) in so many meetings, saw first-hand and personally experienced the suppression of Ivermectin manuscripts, data and meta-analyses which have been so thoroughly documented by Pierre and Dr. Tess Laurie. I lived through the (successful) efforts of FDA/CDER to block the ability of the DTRA/Department of Defense team which I worked closely with to advance comparative testing of famotidine versus famotidine + celecoxib versus famotidine + celecoxib + ivermectin treatment from including any treatment arm that involved ivermectin in the inpatient and outpatient randomized clinical trials for which we sought FDA allowance to proceed. My chronic long COVID (exacerbated by two doses of the Moderna mRNA COVID product) was successfully treated with Ivermectin by Dr. Meryl Nass, who subsequently lost her license to practice medicine for the sin of effectively treating COVID outpatients with Ivermectin. I know Ivermectin works for treating this disease, and if (in an alternative reality) it could have been deployed in the USA and western nations, I am completely convinced that the needless wasting of hundreds of thousands of lives could have been avoided. Parents, co-workers, relatives (brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, cousins), and even some children, all gone forever under horrible and abrupt circumstances. I know on both a personal and an intellectual/professional level that the burden of avoidable carnage and ongoing disability is profound.
But something about seeing the shocking history of this sordid tale of Administrative State-mediated murder of hundreds of thousands of US Citizens all rolled up into a thirteen-minute video montage hit me like yet another “brick to the head” …
I proceeded to work my way through four of the most insightful essays concerning the COVIDcrisis that I have read to date. Composed over the last two years and published online at “UnHerd”, these monographs provide deep philosophical, psychological and political insights as well as indictments of the expanding failure of modern liberalism, the corruption at the core of the administrative state, the impact of big tech, the chronically corrosive role of race politics, and the devolution of science into Scientism…
Many speculate that the Banker/Investor/Globalist Overlords who infest the World Economic Forum, own the central banks of most countries (including the US “Federal Reserve”), and functionally control the major investment funds (Blackrock, State Street, Vanguard and their affiliates) are actively pursuing a depopulation agenda. The theory goes that these elites support various 20th century eugenicist and Malthusian ideals, goals and objectives, and believe in their authority, ability and responsibility to advance centralized globalist solutions via authoritarian means to yield a utilitarian (greatest good for the greatest number) global command economy ideal under their unilateral leadership. A European Union -like WEF/United Nations fusion run by technocrat bankers and economists who act on behalf of a very small number of hyper-wealthy owner-elite families. A hereditary aristocracy. Beneficiaries of “multigenerational wealth” spanning centuries. The phrases “you will own nothing and be happy”, “The elderly are useless eaters”, “excess labor”, “Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls money can control the world”, “We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order” and many others are often cited to account for what appears to be a bizarre set of public health policies which appear to have driven excess death and disability during the COVIDcrisis. Most of us who cling to the idea that fundamental concepts of morality and ethics should drive public policy are instinctively repelled by the possibility that the financial and political elites could think this way. But it is increasingly hard to otherwise account for the observations provided by our lying eyes and ears…
4-year-old girl announces her ‘gender transition’ at ‘pride’ parade
Just imagine how much pain and confusion is being sown at such a young age. It is just unbelievably heartbreaking.
(LifeSiteNews) — At Vancouver’s Pride Parade on July 31, a preschooler walking with her grandmother fired a blue gender reveal cannon to announce that she would be transitioning to male.
“Charlie Danger” Lloyd is a little girl from British Columbia, Canada. She is only four years old. Four-year-olds are not capable of understanding many things. If I subscribed to transgender ideology’s bifurcation of sex and gender — and I do not — I would still be entirely confident that a preschooler could not understand it. Preschoolers also do not have the self-awareness to declare that, based on their years of understanding and experience, they have been born into the wrong body.
But it is 2022, and Lloyd’s mother confirmed her desire to be a boy. Lloyd — the preschooler — uses “he/him” pronouns (have you ever met a preschooler who knew what a pronoun was?) and was apparently thrilled to make the transition announcement at Pride (this was obviously Lloyd’s idea). According to Lloyd’s mother:
Once they closed the road, Charlie strutted out with Grammy and they faced the sidelines and after a short struggle, the cannon exploded with blue smoke and biodegradable confetti. Charlie jumped with joy as the crowd cheered him on. He couldn’t believe the love and support he was shown from the bystanders.
Lloyd’s mother says the preschooler has wanted to be a boy since the age of two. She also says the gender cannon reveal at Vancouver Pride Parade was all Lloyd’s idea…
