Who will find us a strong woman?

We have her, Lara Logan, foreign correspondent for CBS’s 60 Minutes, who tore into mainstreamers:

“Although the media has historically always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense — or at least the effort — to be objective, today. … We’ve become political activists, and some could argue propagandists, and there’s some merit to that,” [she told an interviewer.]

More, even to using the f-word.

Logan added, “Although the media has historically always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense — or at least the effort — to be objective, today. … We’ve become political activists, and some could argue propagandists, and there’s some merit to that.”

“Responsibility for fake news begins with us,” said Logan, referring to journalists and reporters.

Mainstreamers’ watchdog chewed her up once.

Logan recalled that Media Matters for America (MMFA) targeted her following a 60 Minutes report she filed related to the September 11, 2012, Islamic terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya. “I made one comment about Benghazi,” remarked Logan, “[Then] I was targeted by Media Matters for America, which was an organization established by David Brock, who has dedicated himself to the Clintons. It was their known propaganda organization.”

In line of duty, she suffered greatly.

In February of 2011, Logan was sexually assaulted — and nearly murdered — by numerous men in Cairo, Egypt, while reporting on the ousting of then-Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. She shared some details of the attack’s nature.

“Piece by piece, they tore all my clothing off, and just tore my body almost to pieces, and tore my insides apart,” recounted Logan. “I saw people taking pictures. … I remember fighting, being raped, and being able to sometimes push people away, and then I remember just realizing that there were too many of them — and it was over and over and over again — and that there was always someone else when you could fight one person.”

Now what?

Towards the end of the interview, Logan quipped, “This interview is professional suicide for me.”

We hope not.

Cautionary note for breathers of relief at McCarrick demotion

In re: how did it happen?

Major questions that remain unresolved by the former cardinal’s defrocking include how he rose to power under Pope John Paul II despite widespread rumors about his sexual misconduct with adult seminarians and priests, and how much Pope Francis knew about that history before he finally took disciplinary action.

No rest for the those of us who want it all to go away.

Trump Border Emergency Proclamation: There is no constitutional crisis and Trump is likely to win

In the middle of this extremely good rundown/argument why this is so, we find inevitable reference to Obama on DACA vs. Trump on the wall, as some are arguing in a sauce for goose, sauce for gander application.

Difference: Obama in DACA order went directly contrary to Congressional decision, Trump in case of wall wants to implement what Congress authorized, using money as Congress has allowed.

Viganò: Rome Has No “Genuine Willingness to Attend to the Real Causes” of Clerical Sex Abuse Crisis – OnePeterFive

I don’t know what there is to lead one to disagree with what Vigano says.

Mueller says Paul Manafort should serve 19-24 years in prison for non-violent white collar and process crimes. Sammy ‘The Bull’ Gravano killed 26 people and only did around seven years. Still think Muller isn’t running a political persecutio n squad?

But “Sammy �The Bull� Gravano killed 26 people and only did around seven years.”

What’s the apt phrase? Go figure? That’s it.

An LGBT Pamphlet against the Church

I favor exposure, letting devil take hindmost, but here’s a quite cautionary note:

An LGBT pamphlet against the Church. The title is “Sodom” and the author a well-known French LGBT activist. The book however, was hatched in Italy, during a conversation between the author and the publisher, Carlo Fetrinelli, son of Gian Giacomo, the publisher-terrorist who died in 1972, while placing a bomb on an Enel (Italian Electric Company) pylon in Segrate. “Sodom” will be presented within the next few days in eight languages and in about twenty countries.

The official launching of the book will take place on February 21, in conjunction with the Vatican conference dedicated to the sexual abuse of minors. What we are dealing here with then, is a powerful media operation, which has the Catholic Church as its target. The author of the book, Frédéric Martel, presented in the press at times with different titles i.e. sociologist, researcher and historian, has achieved a certain amount of fame for his last paper, Global Gay, translated into various languages, (published in Italy by Feltrinelli) dedicated to the current triumphant march of the homosexual movement all over the world.
