Pope Francis does not intend to resign

Published

Mounting accusations and threats of direct connections to the Vatican aren’t enough to make Pope Francis resign, according to “close associates” of the pontiff.

Multiple sources have indicated Cardinal Theodore McCarrick’s alleged sex crimes were known by the Vatican, including Pope Francis and his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI.

Pope Francis reportedly has no intention of resigning

https://abcnews.go.com/International/pope-francis-reportedly-intention-resigning/story?id=57447785The pontiff was “embittered” by a letter written by the Vatican’s former ambassador to the United States, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, in which the former diplomat accused the pope and his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, of knowing of abuse allegedly carried out by the former archbishop in Washington, Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, the associates said, according to ANSA.

But, they said, Francis, 81, “is not thinking about resignation,” ANSA reported.

This latest scandal involving sex abuse by high ranking members of the Catholic Church does not appear to be going away any time soon. Pennsylvania’s Attorney General Josh Shapiro intends to press the issue.

Pennsylvania Attorney General: Evidence Vatican Knew of Sex Abuse

https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/08/28/pennsylvania-attorney-general-evidence-vatican-knew-of-sex-abuse/The Attorney General asserted that investigators had uncovered documents, including handwritten notes, in the Pennsylvania church archives which detailed cases of sexual abuse spanning over 70 years and involving 301 priests and over 1,000 of their victims. Since the publication of the Pennsylvania grand jury report, more than 700 people have contacted the clergy abuse hotline created by his office. He suspects that the victim counts will continue to rise.

PragerU’s Will Witt informs UCSD students Che Guevara was fiercely against LGBTQ

PragerUs Will Witt informs UCSD students Che Guevara was fiercely against LGBTQ

Cuban Revolutionary Che Guevara imprisoned and murdered many homosexuals in his days fighting the “good fight” that so many progressives seem to admire. This fact of his history seems to have been wiped from the general progressive consciousness. Today, the University of California in San Diego even has a “Che Cafe” that is supposed to be a safe space in honor of the socialist icon.

Members of the LGBTQ endorsing violently homophobic Che Guevara is like African-Americans endorsing Planned Parenthood’s racist founder, Margaret Sanger. And the left wonders why conservatives often label them ignorant hypocrites.

PragerU’s Will Witt went on campus to get some perspectives from students. Surprisingly, very few actually knew much about their Marxist icon. They recognized his face from T-shirts and even professed to “love him,” but seemed oblivious to his actual history.

If it’s on a T-shirt worn by progressives, it must be safe-space-approved, right?

We’re at a point in history when a post-truth society seems inevitable. But that doesn’t give us license to stop trying, stop fighting, or stop educating budding leftists. There’s plenty of work to be done.

Listen to every word Burgess Owens says about reparations

Listen to every word Burgess Owens says about reparations

Former NFL player Burgess Owens delivered an amazing speech before Congress today talking about reparations. He called for them, but not from the United States government as Democrats are wanting. He wants reparation paid by the Democratic Party to the African-Americans Owens believes have been hurt by the leftist ideology espoused by today’s Democrats.

The opening minute of his speech was exceptional:

“Thank you so much for this opportunity. I’m gonna take a different tack from beginning. We are at this point, this is not about black and white, rich or poor, blue collar, white collar. We’re fighting for the heart and soul of our nation.

“We have a very, very special country instilled with the Judeo-Christian values that allowed every single generation become better than the last, and that has not ended, that has not stopped… until now. We’re telling our kids a little bit something different, that they don’t have the opportunities that we had.

“I’m going to talk about some ideologies and when I talk about them I’m not talking about people. People change. I used to be Democratic until I did my history and found out the misery that that party brought to my race. So when I talk about these ideologies, ideologies don’t change. People do.

“We are fighting for the heart and soul of our nation against socialism, Marxism, and evil that it has brought to us in distilling of our history. Karl Marx said it best, the father of socialism, an atheist, anti-semite, and a blatant racist.”

As good as his opening was, the rest of it was even better.

In our post-truth society, the words of Burgess Owens will be dismissed or ignored by the left. But hopefully some will hear them and start asking questions about Democrats as he did.

Censorship is cowardice

Censorship is cowardice

The Left is losing in the marketplace of ideas. It can only survive by silencing the vastly superior inspirations of Liberty.

There is a reason the social media monopolies have begun censoring free speech in earnest. There is a reason they have begun silencing the Pro-Liberty Right. The Socialist-Left can no longer compete in the marketplace of ideas, so it must silence those with vastly superior concepts of economic Liberty and individual freedom.

The primary cause of censorship by social media monopolies

There are a number of details on the social media monopoly of the Socialist-Left, but these all obscure the real issue at hand. The Socialist-Left has to control free speech because it is an inferior system that depends upon lies in order to survive; this is the reason it must assert this control and who is allowed on their ‘platforms’. Their ideology is built upon a foundation of lies that tend to disintegrate under the full exploration of an open discussion. These are the death throes of late stage socialism, with its failure is manifest to anyone of a logical mindset who soberly considers the facts of the matter.

Therefore, in a desperate attempt to protect its base ideology, the Socialist-Left must do everything that it can to keep up the lies to keep it from crumbling into dust. This includes controlling the language with political correctness edicts as well as censoring speech under the undefinable standards of ‘hate speech’.

The Socialist-Left cannot win in the marketplace of ideas, so it must silence the vastly superior ideas of the Pro-Liberty Right. The Left has to silence the opposition out of cowardice. They would have no need to silence others if their ancient ideas were able to withstand the arguments of open debate

Ancient ideas falsely cast as ‘new’

Newly elected City Council member Candi CdeBaca boldly came out for the long discredited concept of communism, claiming that ‘new’ ideas are needed to replace the prosperity and progress brought forth by Economic Liberty. The only problem is that those ‘New’ ideas are 2,400 years old, expressed in a dialog on the ‘Ideal State’ in Plato’s Republic circa 380 – 350 BC. These same ‘new’ ideas were extensively detailed in Sir Thomas More’s classic work ‘Utopia’ published over 500 years ago in 1516. These ‘new’ ideas have been the basis of experiments in Collectivism for the past 400 years, but somehow they are supposedly ‘New’. Bernie Sanders, the author of additional examples of Orwellian ‘Newspeak’ among others has tried to palm off ideas that are several millennia old as ‘new’ in other cases.

The fundamental lie of the Left: Wealth redistribution depends upon coercion

Wealth redistribution that depends upon coercion is the fundamental tenet of socialism. The Left cannot admit to this basic truth and must hide it at all costs. This coercive requirement of socialism runs counter to human nature and explains why it can never work. This also explains why it needs a monopoly on the use of force as well as being another reason it has to control free speech.

There is a whole constellation of lies to hide socialism’s true character and its horrid track record of 400 years of failure. Many of these try to foster the lie that the failed examples of socialism were something else – usually ascribed using some sort of nonsensical logic that these were somehow ‘right-wing’.

Ideological schemes such as socialism have always been a means by which some obtain power over others while others cynically use it to steal from other people and the reason the Left always has a ready set of lies to hide this fact. But, logic and practical reality tells us that lies eventually catch up to those who incessantly use them to further their socialist national agenda, as is in the present case.

The Takeaway

Consider the implications of the ‘concentration camp’ row in the news. There is a reason why both sides are jumping into the fray that boils down to semantics. The national Socialist Left would like this to redound negatively towards President Trump and the Pro-Liberty Right, with the obvious parallels to one of the biggest lies of the Left that the Nazis weren’t socialists. There is a reason the national socialist media keeps on referring to the ‘Far-Right’ whenever they can.

The Left would love to rewrite historical facts, inverting reality at the same time. They cannot accomplish this if we can refute their assertions with the truth. That is why the Left obsesses over silencing the opposition. Facts, logic and history aren’t kind to their revisionism. It makes little sense in the light of practical reality. They can only win if the argument is only from one side – their side.
