Stuff below the fold plus rants.

Headline suggests it is workers protesting at the Chicago headquarters of McDonalds, but the article reveals otherwise:

About 2,000 protesters, including about 325 McDonald’s workers in restaurant uniforms,

bussed in, of course,from outside, by the union...

Can you say "Astroturfing" children?


The Book of Lost tales lectures are starting at Mythgard. I left the book at home, but will probably listen in anyway.

PJBlog: One of the first Benghazi telephone calls was to YOUTUBE...

Hillary shouldn't have listened to Huma about how the Islamic extremists loved America...

Not much new in mudslinging: trying to stop the anti slavery movement by Mudslinging and blackmail against Wilberforce

O'Keefe strikes again:

Fracking film folks accept money aimed to stop the Americans from becoming free from needing Middle Eastern oil.. green Hollywood types say:ok but keep it quiet.

Was Mgt Sanger a eugenist or just hated poor people? More eugenics history via Mrs. Gay Caswell. As a metis she is well aware of the eugenics influence in Canada against the First Nations...and if you think she is exaggerating, I could tell you similar stories from my time working "on the res" in the USA...

I just finished a book about Lindburgh and his friend Nobel prize winner Dr. Carrel, both of whom suported eugenics and the idea that the superior should run the world: it wasn't just the Nazis pushing this back then (and when the English talked about inferior races, they meant the Irish, of course). Ironically, what ultimately changed :Lindburg's mind about the beautiful German utopia was the horror of visiting the German rocket site after the war and seeing how the Nazis worked thousands of workers to death to build it..and later, he changed his mind about non Caucasions after making friends with a Masai leader. So then he went bonkers about environmentalism, but that's another story.


Pope Francis just excommunicated a liberal who for years has been pushing heresy for years...the anchoress updates and say it was actually the local bishop, but someone upstairs put a bee in his bonnet to get him to act like a pastor not a wimp.

What's next? telling Georgetown to take the "catholic" off their logo?

The speech by Princeton's Professor George doesn't give one much hope for the future of Catholicism. YOUTUBE LINK

The days of socially acceptable Christianity are over, the days of comfortable Catholicism are past… Powerful forces and currents in our society press us to be ashamed of the Gospel—ashamed of the good, ashamed of our faith’s teachings on the sanctity of human life in all stages and conditions, ashamed of our faith’s teachings on marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife. These forces insist that the Church’s teachings are out of date, retrograde, insensitive, uncompassionate, illiberal, bigoted, even hateful. —National Catholic Prayer Breakfast, May 15th, 2014
and the US State department (and the UN and some EU countries are pushing a similar agenda on small poor countries, under the threat of losing foreign aide)...

This has huge implications, both for US politics and for international affairs, but of course don't expect the NYTimes to cover it...


made up or true? fox, via Gateway pundit  says that the 911 museum mounted the steel cross upside down...

and looks like they took the "shroud" off too.

 the cross, which gave many of the (mainly Catholic) firefighters and construction workers working on the rescue comfort...was opposed by atheists. SNOPES report here.
