So many things we wouldn’t be aware of if it wasn’t for the watch dogs at Fox News Insider who have been keeping track of all the guilty parties to blame for Hillary Clinton’s dramatic loss last November.
Wait, what or who are Content Farms in Macedonia? Seems Miz Clinton feels there is a group of social media experts in Macedonia who helped turn the tide in her unsuccessful bid for the White House. Where is Macedonia? Seems a single town in formerly Yugoslavia Republic of Macedonia had about 100 Pro-Trump sites which were manned by unemployed people to make a few dollars. The goal was to produce eye-catching headlines, post them on social media and then earn a few dollars depending on how many hits they could generate. Amazing how that could have taken the election so drastically from Hillary’s grasp.
The ever increasing list of those on Hillary’s blame list include (so far!):
The Federal Bureau of Investigation
Low information voters
Everyone who assumed she’d win
Bad polling numbers
Obama for winning two terms
People wanting change
The New York Times
Democrats not making the right documentaries
Content Farms in Macedonia
The Republican Party
The Democratic Party
Bill Clinton was walking along the beach when he stumbled upon a genie’s lamp. He picked it up – rubbed it and lo-and-behold, a genie appeared. Bill was amazed and asked if he got three wishes. The genie said, I can only grant you one wish. So…What’ll it be?”
He said, “I want to be remembered for bringing peace to the Middle East, instead of that other stuff with Monica, and Jennifer, and the rest of those women. See this map? I want these countries to stop fighting with each other.” The genie looked at the map of the Middle East and exclaimed, “These countries have been at war for thousands of years. I’m good, but not that good! I don’t think it can be done. Make another wish.”
Bill thought for a minute and said, “You know, people really don’t like my wife, Hillary. They think she’s mean, ugly, and that she lies all the time. I wish for her to be the most honest and most beautiful woman in the world, and I want everyone to like her.
The genie let out a long sigh and said, “OK… Lemme see that map again.”
Not that we shouldn’t already know this but for the Catholics who vote without thought to how their Faith may view HOW they vote, here is a thought:
Cardinal Ratzinger, who became Pope Benedict XVI in 2005 wrote a letter in 2004 forbidding Catholics from voting for pro-abortion candidates.
The Church teaches that abortion or euthanasia is a grave sin. The Encyclical Letter Evangelium vitae, with reference to judicial decisions or civil laws that authorize or promote abortion or euthanasia, states that there is a “grave and clear obligation to oppose them by conscientious objection. […] In the case of an intrinsically unjust law, such as a law permitting abortion or euthanasia, it is therefore never licit to obey it, or to ‘take part in a propaganda campaign in favor of such a law or vote for it’” (no. 73).
Christians have a “grave obligation of conscience not to cooperate formally in practices which, even if permitted by civil legislation, are contrary to God’s law. Indeed, from the moral standpoint, it is never licit to cooperate formally in evil. […] This cooperation can never be justified either by invoking respect for the freedom of others or by appealing to the fact that civil law permits it or requires it” (no. 74).
Then Cardinal Ratzinger reinforces his opinion in the footnote:
[N.B. A Catholic would be guilty of formal cooperation in evil, and so unworthy to present himself for Holy Communion, if he were to deliberately vote for a candidate precisely because of the candidate’s permissive stand on abortion and/or euthanasia. When a Catholic does not share a candidate’s stand in favor of abortion and/or euthanasia, but votes for that candidate for other reasons, it is considered remote material cooperation, which can be permitted in the presence of proportionate reasons.
Fr. Jay Scott Newman reinforced Cardinal Ratzinger’s letter in 2008:
“Voting for a pro-abortion politician when a plausible pro-life alternative exists constitutes material cooperation with intrinsic evil, and those Catholics who do so place themselves outside of the full communion of Christ’s Church and under the judgment of divine law.”
