Our new grandbaby – Alexander

Baby Alexander. In the bottom picture, if you bend your head over to the right, you can see his profile with his little hand to his head. The first photo confirms his sex. And I love the middle photo of his little foot. He's Jane's baby, but we are all claiming him as "our baby" too. She's due in December.

Please indulge my gramma’s pride for a moment.

The most telling question of the year: Pelosi on Jesus’ right to life (w/video)

And she ducked it.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), a Catholic, publicly stated earlier this year that she had a duty to pursue policies “in keeping with the values” of Jesus Christ, the “Word made Flesh.” But at a press briefing last week, when reminded of this statement, Pelosi declined to say when Jesus got the right to life.

“Whenever it was,” said Pelosi, “we bow our heads when we talk about it in church, and that’s where I’d like to talk about that.”

Video on the CNSNews page also which is worth a watch.

She had no problem discussing “The Word” being made flesh last spring, though. Up until the CNSNews reporter sticks it to here in a recent press conference.You might notice too that she never mentions the name of Jesus or invokes God in her little phoney monologue.

What fake reverence and total hypocrisy of this woman.  I cannot believe that her constituents don’t see these same character flaws that we see. But then, look at Rep. Stark and his history.

She is disgusting to watch.

(I love Father Jonathan and never miss him on Fox if I can help it.)

The last 2 minutes of this video, Laura Ingraham discusses Pelosi and her meeting with the Pope and her Catholicism:

This is a very interesting question that I think many Catholics don’t want to face. Did Jesus have a right to life at conception? If you believe that the Holy Spirit came upon Mary (what we Catholics call the Immaculate Conception) then you have to believe that all life begins at conception – not at some arbitrary date in the gestation of the not-yet-born.

Science is improving and making great strides every year. That arbitrary date of a “viable fetus” will change in the future. Babies will be viable earlier and earlier outside the uterus.

These are moral questions that have to be confronted by the individual and not by the government.

US ambassador to attend ceremony at Hiroshima

Schalow [professor of Japanese at Rutgers University] speculated that Roos’ [US ambassador to Japan] visit could be a step toward positioning the U.S. to condemn any future use of atomic weapons, perhaps by North Korea.

“If we show some regret of our own use of the weapon, if it happens again, we’re in a moral position to criticize,” he said. “As of now, we’re not in a position to denounce it.”

More of the same from this apologist president and his Marxist regime.

Gee, if we just apologize one more time, if we claim guilt for ending the war and saving the lives of millions of American soldiers, we will somehow deter the nutcase dictators in the world and they will finally see the light!  They will see how much we regret this action and boy howdy, they won’t want to follow in our footsteps! This will be the moment, this will be the action that will heal the world and bring everlasting peace to all mankind:

The absolute shameless arrogance of this man is just amazing. Can you imagine another term with this guy? This just cannot happen. We cannot allow this to happen.

We are not in a moral position to criticize the use of WMD? Since when? We didn’t attack Japan on December 7th 1941. It was a sneak attack on our territory, on our soldiers. And we proceeded to fight a bloody Pacific war which ended when WE ENDED IT with the dropping of 2 atomic bombs. And it saved millions of lives, including those of the Japanese empire. Was it a dreadful thing to do? Yes, no question. But allowing the sacrifice of an entire generation of American men would have been more dreadful, more horrendous.  The choice was not pleasant but it was necessary.

We don’t owe the Japanese anything., least of all an apology. We rebuilt Japan. We helped produce one of the most productive and successful democracies in the world. Our soldiers are still there to help protect the sovereignty of the nation.

At this point in time, this president is positioning us again to bow and apologize. How much longer will this go on?

Elevator Etiquette – courtesy of Fred Shipley – learn it or else

Meet Fred Shipley.

The Florida man, 69, is a resident of the Edwinola Assisted Living Facility in Dade City. Shipley, as it turns out, does not appreciate it when fellow pensioners cut in front of him when the elevator doors open in the Edwinola’s lobby.

Yesterday morning, when fellow resident Howard Soesman made that mistake, Shipley “snapped” and allegedly began choking his 62-year-old elevator mate. According to a Dade City Police Department report, Shipley told cops that Soesman “was also smirking at him which also made him upset.”

When cops busted Shipley, he was far from remorseful, advising them that “the only thing he did wrong was not ‘killing him.’” Charged with battery by strangulation, a felony, the senior citizen was booked into the Pasco County jail, where he posed for this mug shot.
