Imagine, if you can, the soul-wrenching guilt some women experience. They say it can begin immediately after the abortion or it can lie dormant and crop up years later.
There is something about the foolishness of youth and the wisdom gained as we age. Imagine wondering what the child would have been like, how it would have looked, counting the years, “Would have been X years old this year”.
Portraits of Grief in the Aftermath of Abortion
Pope John Paul II’s “special word to women who have had an abortion” in Evangelium Vitae (n.99) has been a great consolation to many women—Catholics and non-Catholics alike. Here is what he said:
I would like to say a special word to women who have had an abortion. The Church is aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and she does not doubt that in many cases it was a painful and even shattering decision. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you His forgiveness and His peace in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. You will come to understand that nothing is definitively lost and you will also be able to ask forgiveness from your child who is now living in the Lord.”
A recent study that was conducted by the University of Chicago’s Crime Lab has learned that Chicago criminals do not acquire their guns from gun shops, gun shows or the internet.
The study examined and interviewed inmates in Chicago’s Cook County Jail who are either facing current gun charges, or have a background consisting of firearms related convictions.
The study learned that virtually zero criminals have ever used the internet or gun shows, because that method is easily traceable. It’s much safer for a criminal to acquire firearms on the streets where they’re harder to keep track of, and that’s most criminals method of choice.”
The vast majority of the inmates used handguns to commit their crimes or protect themselves, very few cited using “military-style assault weapons.” And they said their habit was to get rid of a gun after one year because of the “legal liability” of being caught with a gun that could be linked to crimes they or others committed.”
As for specifics regarding sources for purchasing guns, some of the inmates indicated that gangs have individuals with a Firearm Owners Identification Card who buy guns then sell them to gang members. Others indicated using “corrupt cops” who seize guns then “put them back on the street.”
“The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.”
The Republican Party is dying because the GOP in DC has gone corporate and K Street. They attack any Republicans who dare hold them to their promises. They’ve gone to war against Heritage Action for America, Club For Growth, the Madison Project, etc. They’ve blackballed any political consultant who does work for outsiders.
But even more importantly, the GOP protects their failed consultants who keep bringing in the bacon.
The Project ORCA guys are doing quite well. The guys who collapsed Voter Vault are doing well. The idiots who run outreach for the GOP go out and form consultancy groups, then get embedded within the NRCC, NRSC, or RNC itself and hand contracts back to themselves.
In short, the GOP has become so incestuous it continues to hemorrhage and will die.”
The word of late regarding the nuclear weapons deal with Iran is that the Treaty is close to being ratified. The people who will be voting for it don’t even know the details of the agreement. They are going to vote on it anyway. These are career politicians who repeatedly tell us how they are going to make the world a better place for those who will cast their votes for them in an election. Then they go on to take part in the destruction of our Country or they stand by in idle impotence as it happens. Some of them are silly enough to circulate petitions on Facebook that essentially ask us to tell them to do their jobs. Now we are on the verge of witnessing our elected representatives take part in Treason all because it’s what a Traitor thinks they ought to do,
Is there any wondering why Donald Trump is doing so well in the polls?
“45 murders in 31 days Looking back at Baltimore’s deadliest month”

The Baltimore Sun sought to profile each of the victims, through interviews with relatives, friends, neighbors and police, as well as information on social media — and to chronicle the impact on those left behind.”
González’s mother drowned in November 1999 while attempting to leave Cuba with her son and her boyfriend to get to the United States. The U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) initially placed González with maternal relatives in Miami, who sought to keep him in the United States against his father’s demands that González be returned to Cuba. A federal district court’s ruling that only González’s father, and not his extended relatives, could petition for asylum on the boy’s behalf was upheld by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. After the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the case, federal agents seized González from his relatives and returned him to Cuba in June 2000.”
If we forget how the Clintons operated when Bill was President we will get more of the same if Hillary is elected.
Remember, Hillary Clinton lies. She lies when the lies won’t even help her. She tells lies when they can be easily refuted. In other words, she is not just a liar, she is also stupid.
Good morning America. It’s a beautiful day. It is a great day to be in the house of the Lord. Here at the Real Revo Chapel you can join in worship from where you are. Just slide right on in, there will always be a spot on a pew that is available for you.
This is “Back to School” Sunday where I worship and we always have a particularly gifted minister come to preach on this particular Sunday. His name is Tony Nolan. His Christian testimony is quite incredible. From his very first breath he was fighting an uphill battle, as are we all. Tony was born in a mental hospital to an insane prostitute who used to conduct business not far from where I live. He grew up in one of the worst areas of town here known as Sin City. The earliest days of his life were a living Hell and the scars of that experience lead him into a life of dysfunction by God rescued him, set him aside and raised him up to be a powerful minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
It’s a special day to drop in. If you don’t catch the live webcast it will play again later in the day more than once. My hope is that it will be a blessing to you. Draw nearer to God and he draws nearer to you.
At the link below you will find streaming television content all day but you may join us live for our worship service that begins at 10:45 this morning on the East Coast…
The sheriff, Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman who Goforth was deputy for, has called the killing a ‘Cold-blooded execution’ and said that Goforth was killed because he wore a police uniform. He has also said,
We’ve heard Black Lives Matter, All Lives Matter. Well, cops’ lives matter, too. So why don’t we drop the qualifier and say lives matter,” Hickman said.
The sheriff added, “I’ve been in law enforcement 45 years. I don’t recall another incident this cold-blooded and cowardly.”
“Could Trump be preparing to name a running mate who makes him look like a safe pair of hands? Rumors swill that Sarah Palin is in the frame”
Speaking to Extra TV, Palin said: ‘He is just getting crucified out there just for telling the truth. He’s doing a good job of that.’
She added: ‘He’s leading other candidates and having to talk about the issues that average Joe Six-Pack American wants to hear and wants to talk about.’
The Donald sparked rumors last month by saying he would ‘love’ to have Palin as a running mate.
‘She really is somebody who knows what’s happening and she’s a special person.’
And Palin fueled speculation further by deflecting questions on whether she would like to join the Trump ticket.”
This is touted as a rant and it is. It’s actually a dare and it’s aimed at the keyboard warriors on the left who want to disarm law-abiding Americans. Few things would turn law-abiding Americans into law-breaking Americans. Trying to take away our guns would, though.
As has been mentioned many times before on these pages there is a ‘Law of Unintended Consequences’. Conservatives and libertarians understand and respect that law. It’s unknown to most on the left. There is no better way for them to learn about its existence and iron truth that to try this fool’s game.
“An Open Rant Aimed at Those Who Would Repeal the Second Amendment”
Talk is cheap, but persuading Americans to surrender their rights will be expensive, difficult, and time-consuming.
Seriously, try it. Start the process. Stop whining about it on Twitter, and on HBO, and at the Daily Kos. Stop playing with some Thomas Jefferson quote you found on Google. Stop jumping on the news cycle and watching the retweets and viral shares rack up. Go out there and begin the movement in earnest. Don’t fall back on excuses.”
This guy is teaching young people at Princeton. It’s no wonder they are so ignorant and so confused.
CNN Anchor Babe Carol Costello asked Professor Cornel West if he thought race played a part on the on-air shooting of three white people by a black man. The good Cornel got his lips started and couldn’t stop them. He said some really weird things. Disjointed things like:
Justice is what love looks like in public. When you have a love deficit, you have a justice deficit. And the question becomes, how do you make things accountable? I‘m very much in favor of tight gun control.”
I know. It’s crazy. You just watched an awesome movie and here comes another one.
That’s because I just figured out that our featured presentation from earlier this evening has actually been shown here before. Yes, I had Starship Troopers 3 here on a Saturday Night back in 2012 and forgot all about it. It is Starship Troopers 2 – Hero of the Federation that has never been shown here before. There’s only one way to fix that.
It’s time for a SciFi overload.
Another great movie from the Starship Troopers Series…
Is it Friday night again already? Do we have another dynamite movie lined up for our viewing pleasure yet again? The answers to those questions are yes and YES. Selecting movies here lately has been a daunting task. The movies have been so good that when it comes to selecting one for the next Friday night I wonder how I will do it without letting our audience down. The movie we have lined up tonight is one of my absolute favorites, one I have watched many times and will watch many more times. I waited for this movie to be produced for 21 years and have spent the past several checking for its availability online. Last night as I was beginning to get nervous about meeting the show time deadline I found it. I saw it there, legit as it could be so I had to jump on it immediately.
While in search of the perfect seasonal beverage for Halloween 2015, last weekend I discovered THIS…
I thought you should know about it.
I tried it and it’s very festive and tasty, though I would not recommend this poison for anyone as it can turn you into a Slave. Sad but true. Oh no, I just quoted Metallica while having a conversation about Iron Maiden. I apologize.
Hillary Clinton is known by the American people. They know her as a liar. She has given us plenty of reasons to know her dishonesty. She did not, as she claimed, “Run head down from the plane to avoid sniper fire”. She let four men die in Benghazi, refused to take responsibility for it, and falsely blamed it on an internet video of Mohammad. I don’t need to list every falsehood that has come from her. Americans don’t need a list and we don’t have enough space here.
The only way she can, “Overcome”, her reputation as a serial liar is with other lies. You know that, I know it, and so do a majority of other Americans.
While Republicans have been test-driving attacks against Clinton for a year and a half, no other line of attack has broken through to this degree. The numbers in a new Quinnipiac University poll are striking: More than 3-in-5 voters, 61 percent, think Clinton isn’t honest and trustworthy. Overall, Clinton’s favorability ratings slipped to 39 percent — her lowest rating since Quinnipiac began polling on Clinton after she and her husband left the White House.
When voters were asked the first word that came to their mind about Clinton, the top three replies were indictments of her trustworthiness. The No. 1response was “liar,” followed by “dishonest” and “untrustworthy.” Overall, more than a third of poll respondents said their first thought about Clinton was some version of: She’s a liar.”
