Pope Francis, Re. Cardinal Barbarin, PROVES He Is On The Side Of The Child Sex Abusers, And NOT The Victims.
This beyond the bloody pale.
The aptly-named Barbarin is already convicted by a french court and wanted to resign — albeit just is not-that-important archbishopric rather than the musch prestigious cardinalate.
Barbarin, at this late stage, was at least trying to make a gesture.
But, NOT the bloody pope. Oh, NO. The pope doesn’t like that. He cares nothing about the poor victims.
What Trump is to White Nationalists,
Pope Francis is to Child Sex Abusers.
I am so disgusted with him. He promised so much BUT did a 180 on the CRITICAL child sex abuse issue.
Worst pope in 61-years.
Also not getting ‘Cardinal’ George Pell, languishing in an Australian prison cell, to relinquish his cardinalate. Pope remains silent.
Francis is a disgrace to Christianity.

All forms from IRS.gov.
OK, it is true that SOME of the forms are the size of EXTRA-LARGE postcards BUT all they have done is split the forms into MULTIPLE ‘postcard’ size Schedules.
It is stupid.
The basic ‘front page’ 1040 is split into two just to give the appearance that is SMALLER and akin to an EXTRA-LARGE postcard. But, it takes TWO of these EXTRA-LARGE postcards to do the very basics.
And then we have 6 NEW Schedules, viz. 1 to 6, in ADDITION to all the old & beloved Schedules A, B, C, D etc.
Sacré bloody bleu.
These new Schedules just complicate matters.
Trust me it is not simpler or faster.
I know my way around the 1040. SMILE. I have been doing taxes, on my own, for nearly a decade. I don’t use software. I do it by hand using ‘Free File Fillable Forms’ from the IRS or just PDF versions of the forms (also from the IRS).
In the last couple of days I did two fairly involved returns — both involving Obamacare, ‘Premium Tax Credit’ Form 8962. I worked it all out and got it done. But, it was really no easier than years before. Just more involved and fiddly.
So, Trump lied to us about this. But, what is new.
Just occurred to me while watching TV tonight, and hearing the the Robert Mueller investigation might finally be coming to an end, that I have NOT seen Rudy on TV in quite a few days.
Maybe weeks. Yes, I watch enough cable news, morning, noon and night that I usually catch most appearances to the Rudy.
Has Drump dumped him?
Has he had another health relapse?
I know that he hasn’t been doing the media rounds for at least a couple of weeks. I am NOT complaining. He drives me nuts. Just wanted to share an observation in case you had not noticed it. But, don’t lose any sleep over it. Be thankful, very thankful.
The pope doth protest too much, methinks.
He is beginning to act & sound like a man who has a dark secret to hide.
Francis repeatedly attacks those like us who are genuinely upset about all of the sex abuse that has gone on and continues to go in in the Catholic Church by clergy that is supposed to have a duty to protect the young and the innocent if nobody else.
He is an hypocrite and a shallow man. I am getting increasingly convinced that he has a very dark, sinister past.
There is no vetting to be pope. Plus as we know the prelates protect each other. So, if Francis has a dark past he has a good chance of being able to keep it hidden because like Trump he has most of the prelates intimidated.
So, I ask out LOUD: why doth Francis protest so much? What does he have to hide?
The YouTube Video.
Italians like powerful emperors and even nationalistic, authoritarian strongmen like Mussolini. So, Trump is a natural for them.
Wow. A 65′ effigy.
I hadn’t seen this on US media, maybe because it isn’t Fake News. But, I wanted to make sure that YOU got to see it. Enjoy. No thanks required. This is my duty and honor.
Does The ‘House Committee On Oversight’ Have Any Plans To Question White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders?
If so then why isn’t she answerable to the taxpayers — via our elected and paid representatives, the Members of Congress.
Her performance, or lack thereof, is troubling. She is not doing her job. She has stopped having press briefings and we have all heard how she has, since she started, taken great liberties with the truth.
So, why hasn’t the House called her in for a chat under oath?
Why is she being allowed to get away with her cavalier — and borderline obnoxious — behavior.
Yes, I am old enough to be her father. I would be so ashamed if she was my daughter! But, I think I lucked out. None of my daughters would stoop that low. While I can’t take any credit for it, they all have innate class. Huckabee Sanders, alas, never seems to have been exposed to that. I pity her father.
How Is It POSSIBLE That We Have Active Duty U.S. Coast Guard Personnel Who Get Paid Below The Poverty Line?
Click to ENLARGE.
I did happen to see this lady, Retired Rear Admiral Carli Thomas, making this claim (show above) on TV — CNN or MSNBC.
It shocked me to the CORE. How is that possible. I went looking for the 2018 U.S. Poverty Line figures. Here they are, and yes they do depend on family size — as they should.
So, let’s take the classic family of 4 — i.e., two kids. Poverty line is $25,100.
Does this mean you can be a U.S. Coast Guard Family and make less than that? YIKES. A young-couple, with just one person working, making less than $16,460?
That is NOT right? That is criminal?
Is this true for other branches too? Wow. I am shocked and upset. This is NOT right.
They need to get paid a decent, living wage.
Doesn’t Trump always brag about how he has taken care of the military? It does NOT look that way to I.
