President Trump and North Korea

An historic event has occurred on the neutral ground of Singapore. What no other United States President has done . . . HAS been done by President Trump when he met with Kim Jong Un of North Korea.

Of course, this is the very beginning of what everyone hopes will finally bring a restful peace to that corner of the world. The political naysayers and the warped media will pick apart every aspect of this historical meeting with their own, often skewed version. For now, however, President Trump had made a beginning and anyone who wasn’t amazed by this handshake have either mislaid their patriotism or don’t really know their history.

Who thought that when this happened: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Pueblo_%28AGER-2%29
We would, some day, have the above picture.

Babies in the Womb . . .

 

Vivisection means literally “to cut up something that’s alive,” and it’s the term used for operating on live animals for scientific research. We probably recall one instance or another where there was protest against labs using animals for scientific research this way. After all, an animal is a helpless creature who relies on people to survive this world. However, it is legal to vivisect a child in the womb in the world today. Fortunately, among the 194 nations globally, there are only ( and ‘only’ is still too much!) seven countries that legally allow this cruelty to be done on an unborn human baby. The seven countries where this is permitted are:
Canada (No restriction in law)
China (No restriction in law)
Netherlands (24 week)
North Korea (No restriction in law)
Singapore (24 weeks)
United States (viability)
Viet Nam (No restriction in law)
In the past month, there was an effort to stop this reign of terror on the unborn but, fourteen CATHOLIC UNITED STATE SENATORS DEFIED most of Congress, the President, and the majority of United States Public opinion so the United States remains a part of the death squad.
Even more sad is that of the fourteen CATHOLIC (in name only at this point!) only one of the Senators has been excommunicated by his bishop, Bishop Paprocki. Where is the outrage from our clergy? Why aren’t the bishops making known and promoting Catholic teaching in the face of this? How can they continue to give them the Sacraments to these senators after they publically made their very un-Catholic views known and voted accordingly?
Although it should be extremely surprising, remember over 50 percent of the Catholic vote voted an adamant pro-abort president into the White House TWICE.

Gratitude In Short Supply . . .

One of the news stories coming from President Trump’s recent trip to China dealt with the three American athletes who had been apprehended by the Chinese authorities for shoplifting from two or three stores in China. By the time the President was in China, the three young men were on house arrest and facing the possibility of ten years in prison for their crime. President Trump appealed to the President of China on their behalf and within a day of discussion, the three young men were on a plane home.

Although each of the three athletes thanked President Trump in their news conference, to me, it sounded rather robotic and insincere. Since the public ‘thank you’, one player’s father came out saying his family had no reason to be grateful to the president, saying, “Who? What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”

Then he elaborated: “As long as my boy’s back here, I’m fine. I’m happy with how things were handled. A lot of people like to say a lot of things that they thought happened over there. Like I told him, “They try to make a big deal out of nothing sometimes.” I’m from L.A. I’ve seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses. My son has built up enough character that one bad decision doesn’t define him. Now if you can go back and say when he was 12 years old he was shoplifting and stealing cars and going wild, then that’s a different thing. Everybody gets stuck on the negativity of some things, and they get stuck on them too long. That’s not me. I handle what’s going on, and then we go from there.”

If President Trump hadn’t intervened and his son was sent to a Chinese prison for ten years, I wonder how soon this parent would have asked (probably demanded!) help for his erring son. His remarks certainly reveal how the moral compass is working in the world today. Those three boys were representing America and they disgraced themselves and our country. In spite of that, President Trump didn’t want to leave American citizens in a foreign prison and worked to have them released and sent home. Sounds to me like this one, particular father is stuck on negativity himself in disrespecting the President.
