The Outrageous Assault on
the Knights of Columbus

Washington Free Beacon, by Matthew Continetti

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/11/2019 6:14:54 AM

Kamala Harris is set to announce her candidacy for president sometime around Martin Luther King Jr. Day. What sort of chief executive would she be? Well, here´s your first clue: On December 5, Harris posed a series of written questions to Brian Buescher, President Trump´s nominee for District Court in Nebraska. The third question reads as follows: Since 1993, you have been a member of the Knights of Columbus, an all-male society comprised primarily of Catholic men. In 2016, Carl Anderson, leader of the Knights of Columbus, described abortion as ‘a legal regime that has resulted in more than 40

What is it with the Democrat women in Congress? They are so obnoxious; Sheila Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters, Kamala Harris, Mazie Hirono, OccTex, Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi...vipers all. Is it the power-intensive job that draws this kind of obnoxious women, or is it just that obnoxious women are naturally drawn to this kind of job?

I AM Catholic and a Knight. The average Catholic is barely Christian and only marginally practices their faith. They don´t care about Kamala´s attacks on K of C. This is why most of my extended family from the upper mid-west votes for abortion advocating Democrats and why my son a Notre Dame alumnus is ashamed of his alma mater and will no longer wear his ND ring. Demoncrats like Kamala have forever been at war with Catholicism. It wasn´t just blacks who were the target of the KKK who were all Democrat party members and voters. And THAT is in fact ironic - that modern black Dems now follow in the footsteps of their previous tormenters - they just don´t wear the white robes.

Jesus Himself said that His followers would be at odds with "the World" --- which in this context means the materialistic, the corrupt, and the venal.

For that reason it causes me a sigh of relief that there is this open conflict. I am glad that the forces of filth are targeting it so relentlessly. It means --- human sinfulness aside --- there is still something irrevocably good at the core of this ancient Church.

Catholics who practice their religion and still attend mass regularly are still pro-life. And there are a lot of them. Unless you live in a leftist shiitehole like Madison, WI, walk into a Catholic Church on Sunday morning and count the parishioners in the pews and then walk down the street to the nearest Protestand church and count theirs.

Or you can attend the annual March for Life on Jan. 22 in DC and count the Catholic organizations who attend. And the number of people under the age of 25 who have seen large swaths of their generation wiped out by abortion.

Finally, the Catholic Church is the single largest charitable organization on the planet and the members of the K of C in America engage in 10 million man hours of charitable work, mostly to benefit children, every year. How many hours has the odious Harris engaged in - and fund raisers for PP don’t count?

If one is interviewing a woman for a job, it is absolutely forbidden to ask her age, how many children she has or if she is planning to become pregnant. One would lose a large lawsuit for discrimination.

FTA: Article Six, Section Three, of the Constitution: "[N]o religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or Public Trust under the United States."

I have often wondered, in watching these "job interviews," what would happen if the nominee answered one of these derogatory reigious questions:

"I´m sorry, Senator, but it would violate the Constitution´s Article 6 Section 3 for me to answer that question. I will not violate the Constitution, I will follow the law and precedents in my rulings."

None of our historical, traditional organizations can pass the democrats´ litmus test these days because they have deliberately perverted all of the rules of a decent society to conform to their own brand of immorality and paganism.

Language is twisted in a way that would make Joseph Goebbels proud. "A woman´s reproductive rights" is now a synonym for murder. "Sexual freedom" defines the process of changing legally what God has created. A "man" is now hated for the very qualities that have made this country great and we are supposed to accept only the feminine, metrosexual, weak creatures that psychologists now define as men. How have we let them go so far? Cowardice, pure cowardice and inaction.

The Boy Scouts, Knights of Columbus and many others have succumbed to their depravity and given the green light to BLM, Black Panthers and ANTIFA. Their ultimate goal is to make only immoral leftists eligible to run for office or head corporations. The time to start fighting back was fifty years ago but it´s never too late.

I think the Democratic Party cares more about plastic straws hurting turtles than they are about stainless steel straws being used to kill unborn babies . . .

their priorities are clearly screwed up as they slog along in their support of Planned Parenthood and their attacks on everything and everyone that is good and decent . . .

George Soros has been helping in an all-out campaign to foist abortion on the people of Ireland . . . destroy the people in any way you can, that is the Soros way and the DNC way . . . break down the people, their solidarity and cohesion and if that means destroying organizations too, like the Boy Scouts and the Knights of Columbus as well, that´s the program!

Just a thought - I saw a beautiful program on EWTN (the Catholic channel) about St. Gerard Majella (a Redemptorist from Italy) who has become known for helping women and their unborn babies . . . many women in Ireland over the generations have asked St. Gerard Majella for help and thus you will find some Irish children named Gerard (boys) and Majella (girls)

When was the last time we saw a Democrat with 15 consonants and 2 vowels in his name rise to position of importance in the party?

10 years?

20 years?

That´s what´s going on here. You can imagine what Kamela would have asked if this guy belonged to an Eastern Rite or Orthodox Church.

Likely prefaced it with "led by men with tall black hats".

The Democrats have abandoned the working class for certain, but even worse for them they abandoned the Catholics, and currently they are attacking ALL of the Eastern church faithful.

That´s much of the background in the anti-Trump agitation they are generating. He likes Slavic girls!


Hey, and he knows some people with High consonant to vowel combination names... and he associates with former Commies and even speaks highly of some of them ~ and, oh, my goodness, he is not personally afraid of shaking hands with RUSSIANS.

What Kamela is doing is engaging in pure hatred of all that´s Eastern, all that´s Catholic, all that´s Christian, all that´s white, all that´s Western culture, everybody who resisted invasion by the Mongols...... but she´s currently just typical of the low quality of Democrat politicians and party workers.

President Trump reaffirmed his support for religious liberty on Wednesday in celebration of Religious Freedom Day. In his proclamation to honor the day, President Trump praised religious liberty as being "innate to the dignity of every human person." “On Religious Freedom Day, we celebrate our Nation’s long-standing commitment to freedom of conscience and the freedom to profess one’s own faith,” Trump said, according to Catholic News Agency. "The right to religious freedom is innate to the dignity of every human person and is foundational to the pursuit of truth."

In 1974, the Watergate investigation was blowing up around the White House, and Congress looked well on its way to impeaching President Richard Nixon. But on January 30 it all came to a standstill as Nixon walked into the Capitol, stood before Congress, and delivered the State of the Union address. Members of both parties stood respectfully when he entered and left. In 1998, the House of Representatives actually did impeach Bill Clinton. But he came to Capitol Hill a month later and delivered an address that made no acknowledgment of that fact. Members of both parties stood respectfully when

On Sunday, the mainstream media launched a new ploy to promote their Trump-Russia collusion narrative with a story that first appeared in the Washington Post titled “Officials in dark on Putin talks.” A similar piece was published in the Wall Street Journal on Monday, titled “Trump didn’t use notetakers at Putin/ Meeting.” Cable-news networks and Democratic congressmen claim these stories indicate that President Trump held secret discussions with Russian president Putin that were revealed to no one. For example, Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) told CNN on Sunday that the U.S. government “does not know” what Trump and Putin discussed. It

On Wednesday evening, the corrupt Justice Department sought to stall a court-ordered discovery plan, citing the government shutdown, according to Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton. A federal judge ruled on Tuesday that discovery can begin in Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. The discovery was scheduled to be completed within 120 days. Judge Lamberth also ordered senior Obama officials to provide written answers to Judicial Watch under oath. Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes will be deposed under oath on the Benghazi scandal.

Doctors say they expect her to be back on the bench in February, and until then she will review transcripts from her home and participate in the court’s decision-making remotely.

According to the family, Jayden, a biological male, likes dresses and hates "everything about being a boy."

It’s tough to tell. Does this make the shutdown a bug … or a feature? Nancy Pelosi has asked Donald Trump to put off his State of the Union speech to the joint session of Congress until after the funding issues have been resolved: (Copy of Letter/Tweet) And with that, the new Speaker of the House just made the best case possible for a perpetual shutdown. Kidding! What I meant to say was that Nancy Pelosi has finally sounded a note of wisdom, at least in her reminder that presidents used to just deliver a report in writing to Congress.

For the last 35 years, the snowpack in the West’s mountains has resisted the impacts of global warming. But that could soon change, according to a new study out of Oregon State University. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that although climate change should have caused a steep decrease in snowpack, naturally occurring, decades-long weather variations shielded the Cascades, Sierras and Rockies from some of the effects. Although snow stations have recorded some decline, it hasn’t been statistically significant. But according to the study, without this natural weather variation, snowpack in Oregon could have declined
