This week the land of Washington, Jefferson and Mohammed Atta will reach a new milestone by taking in Syrian refugee number 10,000. It’s unknown if the TSA will shower him with balloons and confetti once he passes the gate while clutching a Koran and a copy of the Caliphate Cookbook.
If you are a member of ISIS, you have a better chance of reaching America than your Yazidi sex slave.

The most important dimension of the Fátima event was not the supernatural and preternatural phenomena but the content and the meaning of the message ...
 
Sister Lucia of Fatima: "The final battle between the Lord and the kingdom of Satan will be about Marriage and the Family. Don't be afraid, she added, because whoever works for the sanctity of Marriage and the Family will always be fought against and opposed in every way, because this is the decisive issue. Then she concluded: ‘nevertheless, Our Lady has already crushed his head’.”

"... one cannot vote for Hillary Clinton and remain unstained by the great evils she and the Democrats aspire to advance in the United States if elected."

"It doesn’t take a genius to see that the literal killing of someone (the unborn or the aged) has a greater weight in the moral calculus of deciding for whom we should vote than other issues. If you’re dead, you have no need for food stamps (which is precisely why the Democrats reason it’s good to kill babies: to spare them from poverty). One cannot simply vote for a candidate because they are “nice to poor people” in spite of what is now a totally pro-abortion platform: on demand, removing the Hunt and Hyde amendments, up until the moment of birth. This decision process is like entering a house, a house of moral doctrine. If you encounter abortion, euthanasia, pro-gay marriage, and attacks on the Church in the foyer or front living room, then there is no cause to proceed to the back deck for the barbecue. The only moral decision is to turn right around and leave the house."
In this article, I will attempt to outline which Catholics vote for Hillary and what that vote represents in terms of participation in evil acts.

Bookworms rejoice, and never stop reading. Apparently, your life depends on it.

The image of Our Lady of Guadalupe really speaks to everyone with an open heart, and she seems to speak to each one in the language their culture uses best. The Aztecs didn't have writing, but they had pictograph, and the "messages" in pictograph in her image spoke as easily to them as we read words on a page.

Today, Our Lady speaks to us in a language that no one spoke in 1531. Through means of modern technology, she is speaking to us in the way we think today.

"The image of Our Lady of Guadalupe has been the subject of numerous technical studies since 1751 and extensive scientific investigations in recent years, and none of the result offered any sound scientific explanation which, up to this very day, defies science and all human reasoning as it continuous to baffle scientists and even skeptics.Below are only some of the findings that were drawn from the scientific investigations conducted on the image and the fabric itself which were commissioned by the authorized custodians of the Tilma in the Basilica, and in every case the investigators had direct and unobstructed access to it:

The Fabric

The “Tilma” (a kind of cloak worn by native Mexicans) of Juan Diego that bears the miraculous Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe is a coarse fabric made from the threads of the maguey cactus fiber which usually lasts no more than 20 to 30 years, and yet the fabric has maintained its structural integrity – without cracking or fading, or any sign of deterioration for nearly 500 years. It consists of two pieces of coarse cloth fibers of about 1.70 by 1.05 meters (69.99 by 41.3 inches) held together in the center by a seam of thread made of the same material and is typical of the cloaks used by the Nahuas in the 15th and 16th centuries called “Ayates.” The seam is visible up the middle of the figure, turning aside from the face.

For centuries the Tilma was exposed to the rigors of all natural elements without any kind of protection against infrared and ultraviolet radiations from the tens of thousands of candles near it and the humid condition, dusty and salty air around the Basilica. Despite the constant contact of hands and kisses of thousands of pilgrims who venerated the Image and the continuous manual handling of the Tilma including the many different objects that touched it during the countless times it was subjected to scientific examinations, the Tilma remained in a state of perfect condition. No explanation was also offered by scientists as to why the Tilma is repellent to insects and dust.


In 1789, Dr. José Ignácio Bartolache had two copies of the image painted on an identical piece of maguey cloth using the best techniques of that time and placed them in the same salty and humid environment around the Basilica. After several decades, the two replicas disintegrated. An attempt to “embellish” the Tilma was made which also proved futile: a crown was painted on Our Lady’s head and angels in the clouds. However, unlike the Tilma, these additions have faded away and are no longer visible. The rays of the sun, for example, were coated with gold and the moon plated with silver, but these embellishments also worn away. In fact, the silver-plated moon turned black.

In August 7, 2009, researcher and physicist Dr. Aldofo Orozco told participants at the International Marian Congress on Our Lady of Guadalupe in Glendale, Arizona that there is no scientific explanation for the 478 years of high quality-preservation of the Tilma, or for the miracles of its preservation.

One of the most bizarre characteristics of the cloth is that the back side is rough and coarse, but the front side is as soft as the most pure silk, as was noted by painters and scientists in 1666, and confirmed one century later in 1751 by Mexican painter, Miguel Cabrera. But to the eye, it suggested a coarse weave of palm threads called “pita” or the rough fiber called “cotense“, or a hemp and linen mixture: an ixtle – an agave fiber. An analysis of the fibers in 1946 concluded that the fibers came from the Agave plant, however, researchers could not figure out which of the 175 Agave species the Tilma was made from.

The Image of Our Lady

There is no explanation offered by NASA scientists on how the image was imprinted on the Tilma. There are no brush strokes, or sketch marks on it. The image also seems to increase in size and change colors owing to an unknown property of the surface and substance of which it is made. The colors actually float above the surface of the Tilma at a distance of 3/10th of a millimeter (1/100th of an inch), without touching it. When examined less than 10 inches of the image, one can only see the maguey cloth; the colors totally disappear.In 1936, biochemist Richard Kuhn, a Nobel Prize winner in chemistry, analyzed a sample of the fabric and ascertained that the pigments used were from no known source; whether natural, animal, mineral, or vegetable.

On May 7, 1979, Americans Dr. Philip Serna Callahan, a biophysicist at the University of Florida and an expert in infrared photography, and Jody B. Smith, a professor of aesthetics and philosophy at the College Pensacola, who are both specializing in painting and members of NASA, photographed the image under infrared light and scanned at very high resolutions. After filtering and processing the digitized images to eliminate “noise” and enhance them, they discovered that portions of the face, hands, robe, and mantle had been painted in one step, with no sketches, or corrections, and no visible brush strokes or sizing used to render the surface smooth, no protective varnish covering the image to protect its surface. The Image changes in color slightly according to the angle of viewing, a phenomenon known as “Iridescence“, a technique that cannot be reproduced with human hands. Scientists were unable to find any trace of paint residue or dye of any sort on the Image and yet the the colors maintain their luminosity and brilliance. What produced the colors on Juan Diego’s cloak or how they were applied remains a total mystery of science. The quality of the pigments used for the pink dress, the blue veil, the face and the hands, or the permanence of the colors, or the vividness of the colors after several centuries, during which they ordinarily should have deteriorated, defy all scientific reasoning. The Image still retains its original colors, despite being unprotected by any covering during the first 100 years of exposure.

The bluish-green color of Our Lady’s mantle is unique. It seems to be made of an unearthly shade that as yet no artist has been able exactly to duplicate. Moreover, scientists argued that a painter would be incredibly foolish to choose an Indian’s tilma to work on and even more to paint right over the center seam of the cloak. And had the Virgin not turned ever so slightly to the right, the stitch would have divided her face. Just as astonishing is the fact that only the seam still holds the Tilma together. The law of gravity does not allow a single flimsy cotton thread to bind two heavier materials of cloth for more than ten years, much less four hundred and fifty. In addition, the coarse weave of the Tilma was utilized in such a precise manner as to give depth to the face of the Image.

According to the specialists of Kodak Corporation in Mexico, the Image is smooth and bears more resemblance to a color photograph than anything else. The Image has consistently defied exact reproduction, whether by brush or camera.


All who have scientifically examined the image of Our Lady over the centuries confess that its properties are absolutely unique and so inexplicable in human terms that the image can only be supernatural:

Our Lady’s height in the Image measures four feet eight inches tall, from head to toe, and is represented as a young woman of 18 to 20 year old. The face is that of a “mestiza” – a mixture of Spanish and Indians race brought about by intermarriage.

Callahan and Smith further discovered that the Tilma maintains a constant temperature of 36.6º to 37º, (98.6 Fahrenheit) the same as the body of a living person.

Carlos Fernandez del Castillo, a gynecologist, examined the image and has determined that the gynecological measurements of Our Lady’s physical dimensions indicated a woman who is pregnant entirely consistent with the stage of pregnancy on December 9th for Jesus birth to occur on Christmas day. A stethoscope was placed below the black band at the waist of Our Lady (a sign that she is pregnant) and heard rhythmic repeating heartbeats at 115 beats per minute, the same as that of a baby in the maternal womb.

On December 22, 1981, at the Observatory Laplace Mexico City, Father Mario Rojas and Dr. Juan Hernández Illescas, a medical doctor and amateur astronomer, performed an astronomical study of the Image and analyzed the stellar arrangement that appear in the Mantle of Our Lady. They surprisingly discovered that the stars stunningly and accurately map out the various constellations of the Mexican sky. Even more remarkable is the “star map” on the mantle is in the reverse (the cardinal axis rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise): providing a view of the constellations from beyond them, as would be seen looking through them towards the earth. The constellations are consistent with what astronomers believe was in the sky above Mexico City on the day the apparition occurred – in the winter-morning solstice of December 12, 1531, Saturday, at 10:26AM..."

WHY GOD MADE A FARMER... "At the time of the America’s founding, 95 percent of its population lived on farmland, and only 5 percent lived in urban areas.

Fast forward to today, and these numbers have dramatically flip-flopped. Currently, a whopping 81% of people live in urban areas and only 19% live in rural areas. What is more, only about 1.6% of the American labor force is engaged in agriculture..." Continue Reading on Link...

The amorality of atheism ~ To be “well-educated” is to be ignorant of theology, philosophy, history and the great books of civilization. It is to believe that we have nothing to learn from the Great Conversation that has animated human discourse for three millennia. It is to treat our neighbor in the car next to us with supercilious and scornful contempt, presuming that he is stupid because he is not as “well-educated” as we. It is to treat the greatest minds and the most brilliant writers in history with contempt because they are not as “well-educated” as we. In short, to be “well-educated” is not merely ignorance, it is the arrogance of ignorance.
To be “well-educated” is to be ignorant of the great books of civilization.

Art is the secret handshake of the children of God, the inside joke among those with souls...
Introduction
I believe we are all Souls/Spiritual energy, created by God in his image, having a human experience, possibly to correct past errors in judgment. A lot of people have that mixed up and think it's the other way around... SOMETIMES I SITS AND THINKS AND SOMETIMES I JUST PAINTS AND THINKS… When we were created and entered this earth we were put here to meet our loved ones, our friends, our eternal family, to find the most important one, to start life all over again with different experiences, to correct past experiences, build new ones, same soul different being?  As the shell was being formed we received the expression of God’s intent and vision for our new life, sight and hearing, thought and speech, intelligence and emotions, will and desire, personality and identity. We received a soul. Without the soul, we are a computer without software.  Can we overcome our past experiences, do we dare take chances, a different path, that leads to rewards which can help with a better life or (the soon-to-be tomorrow?)  The beauty of a man or woman is not in their facial features but reflected in their soul. It is the caring that they lovingly give and the passion they show. They are an evolved soul. Steps ahead of the narcissistic lying psychopaths, who can be very charming, but who, in the end have all the depth of a gnat.  The beauty of the evolved soul grows with the passing years.  It's wonderful and beautiful if/when you find someone that is in love with your mind. Someone that wants to undress your conscience and make love to your thoughts. Someone that wants to watch you slowly take down all the walls you've built up around your mind and let them inside. It's not about the shell.  It's about being a friend.  "A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere.  Before him I may think aloud..." Emerson

“A soulmate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes. We are attracted to another person at a soul level not because that person is our unique complement, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become whole ourselves.” Edgar Cayce

SOMETIMES I THINKS...  I'm Breathing...  I'm Alive...  I'm Blessed...  God Is Good!  I've come to realize that the only people I need in my life are the ones who need me in theirs even when I have nothing else to offer but myself and friendship...   SOMETIMES I THINKS... It feels better not to talk. At all. About anything. To anyone.  SOMETIMES I change my mind... SOMETIMES I THINKS it's fine... ♫♪Music♪♫  ٩(˘◡˘)۶    “Without Music life would be a mistake.”  ¸ ¸. ✶ * ♪ ♫ . ¸ ¸. https://youtu.be/yYZaYyeTiyk?list=PL-TcmCCoD5eB6mbV1BVoYfTYAuyEK1lNd

I am a Christian First and Foremost... A Mackerel Snapper...    ٩(˘◡˘)۶  A Roman Catholic and aware of all the flaws.  The basics of dogma and the churches many flaws have been worked out with my daily talks betwixt God and Me.  Having very,very, serious doubts about Pope Francis...  Psalm 25: “Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with blood thirsty men. In whose hands are iniquities, their right hand is filled with gifts.”   I truly miss Pope Benedict XVI and pray for his return.

The older I get, the smarter I get, sorta, kinda.  Looking at history it seems that since at least the 20th century all global struggles are really about a belief in God, Judeo-Christianity, it's value system, teaching, and just about everything else.  The opening of the United States Declaration of Independence states as follows:  We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;...  The United States of America is the only country in history to have defined itself as Judeo-Christian. The west's value system comes from Judeo-Christianity, with communism/socialism/liberalism/obamism being the removal of it. I still remember when Democrat's booed God, It was a shock and an eye-opener... The middle east wants to spread Islamic values. Islam is a warrior religion of aggression and cruelty all done in the name of Islam. Massive destruction of Christians and non-believers is its true nature…  War is expected from political entities, not from a religion.  Almost every major African conflict has a tie to Islam or Christianity. Spreading capitalism or westernizing countries are simply making them adopt Judeo-Christian concepts. Which I totally agree with.

DID YOU KNOW... 1st Bible printed in English in America was in 1782 by the approval of U.S. Congress for use in our public schools! 
DID YOU KNOW... In 1857 the U.S. Capitol Building was the largest church in the United States with over 2000 people attending per week! 
DID YOU KNOW...America's Founders never placed the words 'separation of church and state' in any of our official Founding documents! 

Immorality is un-American, and a threat to National Security.  All the Islamic Muslim Terrorists, all the Communists, all the Joseph Stalins, all the Adolf Hitlers, all the BathHouseBattyBarackINSANEObamas, rolled into one isn't nearly the threat to National Security as immorality is, Abortion is on the top of the list.  ABORTION IS EVIL and doesn't make you un-pregnant.  Your choice of abortion makes you the Mother who killed her child.   That leaves The Father, Sister, Brother, Grandparent, Aunt, Uncle, Cousin...of a Dead Baby.   The big problem is and has been the indoctrination of our young with thought presenting the government's version of reality they wish them to see in school, then encouraging them to be and accept their evil. The indoctrination of Me! Me! Me! I Want! Want! Want!  Unfortunately after participating in evil they realize exactly what they have done, they suffer the guilt and horror of their actions for the rest of their lives.  The whole family suffers... Now you have to live with the fact that your child has probably been painfully murdered, tortured and chopped up Dr.Mengele style and sold for body parts by Planned Parenthood.  

Topics I like. Love, and Ideas for the intellectually inclined: Art, Sculpture, Photography, Religion, God The Father, Son And Holy Spirit...  Physics, Science, The Theory Of Everything, Politics, Genealogy, Grandchildren, Gardening, are just the tip of the iceberg.  Love, Love, Love Music, Painting, Sculpture, Reading, old movies, computer, sewing, and crochet. I would like to make and read everything before I die. 

My Country Tis Of Thee...  I can't really slap a label across my head but... I guess you could call me very, very, very Conservative and now very disenchanted about having to vote Republican.  I'm more of a leave-me-the-hell-alone-ist!  I belonged to the Libertarian Party at one time, but they were and are too Liberal. I would never ever vote for Communism or a Nazicrat. I think I still have very, very, minor Libertarian leanings. I like Ted Cruz.  Christians and Jews had better unite and vote against those who promote [Libidiots & DemoRAT's] Islamic/Muslim Brotherhood Terrorists.  Trey Goudy would be a perfect Supreme Court Justice, so would Thomas Sowell.  I am a purest when it comes to the Constitution. Definitely not a "living document." It is "the law" that America was founded on! A Nation established for "We The People", under God, with liberty and justice for all. Most of our law is based on the Ten Commandments, God's law. The law for mankind. Something to think about changing... 
"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."  ~ Ayn Rand

Things That Aren't Really That Important But Will Say Them Anyhow: Unless you circle me and/or I circle you back, you don't get to see any photo's or +1's  Also Important: Fuggedaboutit!  I do not do Hangouts or Video Chats with Anyone EVAH!!!!   Outside of my family and a few friends, I am an introvert. I would have been, and could be a complete loner. I believe in the power of prayer. Cantankerous. Persnickety. Lovable. Kind. Enjoy company sometimes.  Not looking for anything from anyone, but, If you have depth, emotion, a strong mind, an interesting mind, a touch of odd [I call it Soulshine or Intelligence], can make me think and smile… I will follow you back…. If I discover you are dishonest, untrustworthy, a liar, or playing me, I will block you in a heartbeat, no matter how much I care for you ٩(˘◡˘)۶  If I really care about you don't worry I will probably unblock you after I calm down unless you are a narcissistic psychopath ツ ツ  

My Favorite Quotes:  “Adore God. Reverence and cherish your parents. Love your neighbor as yourself, and your country more than yourself. Be just. Be true. Murmur not at the ways of Providence.” —Thomas Jefferson 

"Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.” - Arthur Conan Doyle 

“My importance to the world is relatively small. On the other hand, my importance to myself is tremendous. I am all I have to work with, to play with, to suffer and to enjoy. It is not the eyes of others that I am wary of, but of my own. I do not intend to let myself down more than I can possibly help, and I find that the fewer illusions I have about myself or the world around me, the better company I am for myself.”  ― Noël Coward 

"We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we are really not alone. ~Orson Welles 

“A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere. Before him I may think aloud. I am arrived at last in the presence of a man so real and equal, that I may drop even those undermost garments of dissimulation, courtesy, and second thought, which men never put off, and may deal with him with the simplicity and wholeness with which one chemical atom meets another.” Ralph Waldo EmersonEssays: First Series

"Having resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die" -- Malachy McCourt 

"Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names." - John F. Kennedy 

 “There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.  Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens?  What's there in that for anyone?  But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted and you create a nation of law-breakers -- and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system.” —Ayn Rand  

 “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” - John Adams 

Hate Crimes are a horrific, Orwellian tool of the left that exist solely to punish people for thinking the wrong way.  Declaring "thought" as a new crime against a privileged class of people based on their choice of behavior is just the beginning of what is to destroy America. ~Unknown 

Man has always sacrificed truth to his vanity, comfort and advantage. He lives... by make-believe. ~W. Somerset Maugham, The Summing Up, 1938 

 We can ignore reality, but we cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality ~ Ayn Rand 

Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognized. In the first, it is ridiculed, in the second it is opposed, in the third it is regarded as self-evident. ~Arthur Schopenhauer 

“My experiences with science led me to God. To be forced to believe only one conclusion-that everything in the universe happened by chance, would violate the very objectivity of science, itself. Certainly there are those who argue that the universe evolved out of a random process, but what random process could produce the brain of a man, or the system of the human eye? Some people say science has been unable to prove the existence of God, but must we really light a candle to see the sun?” – Wernher Von Braun, Rocket Scientist 1912-1977. 

Socialism will not help the poor. Rather it reduces everyone to the same lowest common denominator of poverty and misery, while at the same time drying up the very sources of capital. ~ Pope Leo XIII

“Prior to capitalism, the way people amassed great wealth was by looting, plundering and enslaving their fellow man. Capitalism made it possible to become wealthy by serving your fellow man.” ― Walter E. Williams 

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”  ― Marcus Tullius Cicero 

"Of all tyrannies a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be 'cured' against one's will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals. But to be punished, however severely, because we have deserved it, because we 'ought to have known better,' is to be treated as a human person made in God's image." - C.S. Lewis 

"There are 100 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy, roughly the same as the number of neurons in our brain. You may have to travel twenty-four trillion miles, to the first star outside our solar system, to find an object as complex as what is sitting on your shoulders. The mind and the universe pose the greatest scientific challenge of all, but they also share a curious relationship. On one hand they are polar opposites. One is concerned with the vastness of outer space, where we encounter strange denizens like black holes, exploding stars, and colliding galaxies. The other is concerned with inner space, where we find our most intimate and private hopes and desires. The mind is no farther than our next thought, yet we are often clueless when asked to articulate and explain it."  — Dr. Michio Kaku, THE FUTURE OF THE MIND: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind

“It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it.” ~Thomas Sowell
