There are plenty more.
Cardinal Wilton Gregory is going to be a very busy prelate. Very Catholic Joe Biden will ‘lean’ on him heavily & he will become part of his ‘cabinet’. All good. Nothing bad. I do NOT know Wilton Gregory. But, I will find out. He seems OK. Did a nice job today.
I went & checked exactly as to when he was named as a cardinal. It was BEFORE the November 3, 2020 election. SMILE. But, NOT by much. Just a week. So, unless the pope had a message from his Boss this was coincidental — but providential.

Did YOU know about this. It was installed Sunday — yesterday.
I just happened to see it, in passing, on CNN.
I wanted to share it with you.
Very clever. Very moving.
I never realized that 20,000 seats looked that BIG — & it is ONLY representing 1/10 the DEAD! WOW.
Not So Great Story From New Zealand: The Ambassador To The U.S. & The Hidden Camera In The Bathroom!
From the U.K. ‘Daily Mail‘ article (↑).

Wow. What was he thinking. He had to have been rather desperate & ‘sick’. Feel bad for him.
After all the spate of positive stories about New Zealand (albeit in the wake of the horrible mosque massacre) this is quite a shame. New Zealanders, in general, must be mortified. I feel for them. I guess he is most likely headed to prison.
Given what is happening in D.C. right now, it is one heck of a topical movie. They could not have timed it better. Provides you with great insights into the FBI, their command structure and how things are supposed to happen.
I am not a ‘Watergate’ buff and have not read (and cannot remember seeing) ‘All The President’s Men‘. It was kind of before my time; I was at the time living in the U.K. and having the time of my life in College. American politics were way outside of scope of interest. But, overtime I did learn enough about it to know the general plot, the main characters and what transpired. As such it was not difficult for I to follow and enjoy this movie.
What I was struck, repeatedly, was the parallels with what has been going on in D.C. with Comey, Andrew McCabe, Robert Muller etc. Fascinating. Like watching history repeating itself.
Highly recommended. The movie is readily available. I DVRed it off Starz.
Then it occurred to me. Other than on the much publicized “National Prayer Day“, I have not heard of Trump attending church in D.C. — and given that I am a news junkie I tend to hear/see this stuff.
Obama and other presidents made a point of going to church in D.C. on a fairly regular basis.
Trump is supposed to be our Evangelical President — albeit with his propensity for groping females.
So, what gives?
How can HE get away with this. This impunity ….
My “Cousin” Upali With Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau During His Visit To D.C. On February 13, 2017.
OK, just for the record he is not my real cousin though he is definitely considered very much family. He has been in the family for over 35 years, ever since he was 12. He lived with my parents for a long time.
He has worked in D.C. Embassies since 1992 — starting when my father was the Sri Lankan Ambassador to D.C.
He now works for the Canadian Embassy (and loves it).
This picture was taken Monday afternoon at the Canadian Embassy and includes some of the support staff.
It, as proclaimed by the seal at the bottom, is an official, ‘Office of the Prime Minister’ photograph. So, I think it is very much public domain — though Upali sent it to me and said it was ‘OK’ to post. I blurred out the other faces out of a surfeit of caution — given today’s sad climate.
Just thought it would be cool to share.

So this is where Pope Francis will be when he is visiting Philadelphia. What about when he is in Washington, D.C. and New York City. Yes, that is in the book too.

Yep, this pope actually said that. Capitalism, the “dung of the devil”!
Here, check it out in the “New York Time“.
Well, Francis is scheduled to address a joint session of U.S. Congress, on Capitol Hill, in Washington D.C., at 9:20 am on Tuesday, September 24, 2015 during his 6-day, September 22 to 27 visit to the U.S.
John Boehner, a devout Catholic invited him to address Congress, towards the end of 2014. Pope Francis will become the first pope to have done so.
Boehner’s invitation was before the Pope start his all out rampage in 2015 against capitalism and global warming.
Some members of Congress, particularly Republicans, are likely to have issues with what the pope has been saying, of late, about capitalism and global warming. Not sure whether they will want to be ‘seen’ with a man that is bashing an INSTITUTION so near and dear to them. Isn’t calling capitalism the ‘dung of the devil’ what you would expect from an out and out commie? [Talking of which why was Francis taken back when he was presented a Crucifix in the form of a commie hammer and sickle?] So basically Congress will be addressed by a commie! Not sure how that will go down.
This is going to be interesting. Mark the day. Tuesday, September 24, 2015.
