The media is outraged that a Republican linked outfit harvested Facebook data. Of course, they ignore the fact that they themselves praised Barack Obama for doing this very thing. Well, turns out Hillary did it too!
From Fox News:
"The social networking giant banned the practice of acquiring users’ friends lists in 2014 after former President Barack Obama’s campaign weaponized the method and got access to the data of millions of potential voters.
But Clinton’s application took advantage of special iPhone and Facebook integration, asking every user to pair their friends list on Facebook with their phone contacts – and give the campaign permission to access that info.
People who didn’t download the application weren’t able to stop friends from pairing their phone numbers with Facebook accounts if their friends decided to do so.
Once the friends list was paired with the app, people had to swipe through their Facebook friends and dismiss those who, in their view, would never vote for Clinton. Once that was done, the remaining friends were sorted by location and the users could send a pre-written text message to convince them to back Clinton in numerous ways."
It's funny to watch the media try to make hay out of their own barnyard waste. If they want to keep pushing this they will likely wind up hurting the Democrats, who rely on this sort of data to push their candidates and agenda. They Donkeys struggle to get their spin out, because it IS spin and requires a lot of carefully phrased buzzwords and memes repeated endlessly. Our side is in much better shape in that regard as we only need get the truth out. If the Democrats can't use this cyber technique they are going to be hard pressed.
This is going to be fun to watch as the Left eats it's own foot.
Everyone is probably awaiting my take on the brouhaha embroiling Pope Francis and his dancing teeth, specifically, his alleged claim there is no Hell. Well, here goes!
First, the Social Justice Warrior Il Papa has denied the claim made by Italian journalist/atheist Eugenio Scalfari that the Pontiff told him in a private interview (sans transcript or recording) that there was no such thing as Hell. If that were true it would constitute an actual heresy, something not seen since Pope Liberius supported (under duress) Arianism in 354 a.d. after having been imprisoned by the Roman government at Beroea and then exiled to Thrace. Beyond that there is no record of any Pope being heretical, although there have been "antipopes" - Popes who usurped the title or who were appointed as replacements by civil authorities (Liberius himself was replaced by an anti Pope - Felix - who was summarily removed when Liberius returned from his exile.)
Even during the Great Schism of 1378, when three different men tried to claim the bark of Peter, there was no actual heresy involved. Heresy is defined as: more...
A new horde of aliens, mostly from Central America, is preparing to storm the U.S. southern border. ] Courtesy of Gateway Pundit:
…For five days now hundreds of Central Americans — children, women, and men, most of them from Honduras — have boldly crossed immigration checkpoints, military bases, and police in a desperate, sometimes chaotic march toward the United States. Despite their being in Mexico without authorization, no one has made any effort to stop them.
Organized by a group of volunteers called Pueblos Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders, the caravan is intended to help migrants safely reach the United States, bypassing not only authorities who would seek to deport them, but gangs and cartels who are known to assault vulnerable migrants.
Organizers like Rodrigo Abeja hope that the sheer size of the crowd will give immigration authorities and criminals pause before trying to stop them.
"If we all protect each other we’ll get through this together,” Abeja yelled through a loudspeaker on the morning they left Tapachula, on Mexico’s border with Guatemala, for the nearly monthlong trek.
When they get to the US, they hope American authorities will grant them asylum or, for some, be absent when they attempt to cross the border illegally. More likely is that it will set up an enormous challenge to the Trump administration’s immigration policies and its ability to deal with an organized group of migrants numbering in the hundreds.
The number of people who showed up to travel with the caravan caught organizers by surprise, and has overwhelmed the various towns they’ve stopped in to spend the night. Pueblos Sin Fronteras counted about 1,200 people on the first day…”
Why now? Well, the economy is booming and no doubt Mexico wants to keep the door open. They are going to try to flood the U.S. with as many aliens as possible to force a political firefight, and they want to embarass Trump.
Now we'll see how high the tensile strength is in Mr. Trump's spine.
Villagers in the Phillipines are hunting a true monster - a THIRTY FOOT man-eating crocodile!
From the article in the U.K. Sun:
"A woman is said to have been grabbed by the croc - although her fate is unknown.
One man who saw the beast up close swears it was 29.5ft in length, according to a video published by Discovery.
Until now, the largest crocodile ever recorded was 20.3ft long:"
The beast has been terrorizing the Augusan Del Sur region.
Imagine that terrifying thing bearing down on you!

A reading from the Book of Matthew
17On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?”
18He replied, "Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’ ” 19So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.
20When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve. 21And while they were eating, he said, "Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me.”
22They were very sad and began to say to him one after the other, "Surely you don’t mean me, Lord?”
The Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread
12 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, 2 "This month is to be for you the first month, the first month of your year. 3 Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb[a] for his family, one for each household. 4 If any household is too small for a whole lamb, they must share one with their nearest neighbor, having taken into account the number of people there are. You are to determine the amount of lamb needed in accordance with what each person will eat. 5 The animals you choose must be year-old males without defect, and you may take them from the sheep or the goats. 6 Take care of them until the fourteenth day of the month, when all the members of the community of Israel must slaughter them at twilight. 7 Then they are to take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses where they eat the lambs. 8 That same night they are to eat the meat roasted over the fire, along with bitter herbs, and bread made without yeast. 9 Do not eat the meat raw or boiled in water, but roast it over a fire—with the head, legs and internal organs. 10 Do not leave any of it till morning; if some is left till morning, you must burn it. 11 This is how you are to eat it: with your cloak tucked into your belt, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. Eat it in haste; it is the Lord’s Passover.
12 "On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn of both people and animals, and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the Lord. 13 The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.
14 "This is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the Lord—a lasting ordinance. 15 For seven days you are to eat bread made without yeast. On the first day remove the yeast from your houses, for whoever eats anything with yeast in it from the first day through the seventh must be cut off from Israel. 16 On the first day hold a sacred assembly, and another one on the seventh day. Do no work at all on these days, except to prepare food for everyone to eat; that is all you may do.
17 "Celebrate the Festival of Unleavened Bread, because it was on this very day that I brought your divisions out of Egypt. Celebrate this day as a lasting ordinance for the generations to come. 18 In the first month you are to eat bread made without yeast, from the evening of the fourteenth day until the evening of the twenty-first day. 19 For seven days no yeast is to be found in your houses. And anyone, whether foreigner or native-born, who eats anything with yeast in it must be cut off from the community of Israel. 20 Eat nothing made with yeast. Wherever you live, you must eat unleavened bread.”
21 Then Moses summoned all the elders of Israel and said to them, "Go at once and select the animals for your families and slaughter the Passover lamb. 22 Take a bunch of hyssop, dip it into the blood in the basin and put some of the blood on the top and on both sides of the doorframe. None of you shall go out of the door of your house until morning. 23 When the Lord goes through the land to strike down the Egyptians, he will see the blood on the top and sides of the doorframe and will pass over that doorway, and he will not permit the destroyer to enter your houses and strike you down.
24 "Obey these instructions as a lasting ordinance for you and your descendants. 25 When you enter the land that the Lord will give you as he promised, observe this ceremony. 26 And when your children ask you, ‘What does this ceremony mean to you?’ 27 then tell them, ‘It is the Passover sacrifice to the Lord, who passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt and spared our homes when he struck down the Egyptians.’” Then the people bowed down and worshiped. 28 The Israelites did just what the Lord commanded Moses and Aaron.
29 At midnight the Lord struck down all the firstborn in Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh, who sat on the throne, to the firstborn of the prisoner, who was in the dungeon, and the firstborn of all the livestock as well. 30 Pharaoh and all his officials and all the Egyptians got up during the night, and there was loud wailing in Egypt, for there was not a house without someone dead.

Today, the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews is calling on supporters of Israel to "Rally Around Jerusalem.”
Stand in solidarity against those who strive to tear the Holy City from the hearts and hands of the Jewish people! Help tell our enemies, "Jerusalem is Israel’s eternal capital!”
Your response will demonstrate that committed supporters like you are doing your part and acting in faith to strengthen Israel in significant ways that truly matter.
We are on solid biblical ground with our proclamations! Psalm 48 is a bold declaration about Jerusalem’s status as Israel’s eternal capital, God’s own delight in Jerusalem, and His promise to be her Defender forever (v. 8).
In this psalm of praise for Jerusalem, it is called "the city of our God, his holy mountain” and "the joy of the whole earth.” God is said to be "in her citadels; he has shown himself to be her fortress” (vv. 1–3). FREE U.S.-Israel flap pin
Moreover, the reader is invited to "Walk about Zion, go around her, count her towers, consider well her ramparts, view her citadels” (vv. 12–13) as evidence of the Holy City’s security under God’s watchful eye.
So today, we accept this biblical invitation to "go around” Jerusalem, to "rally around” the Holy City in unbroken solidarity with her people, with the nation of Israel, and with the God of Israel Himself!
Let your voice be heard and declare your support now. In return for your commitment, you will receive a complimentary US-Israel Flag pin that you can wear proudly to demonstrate your commitment to Israel and the Jewish people.

The BHO allowed the Russians to offer material covert assistance to the Iranian nuclear program.
From The Hill:
"A former undercover informant says he provided evidence to the FBI during President Obama’s first term that Russia was assisting Iran’s nuclear program even as billions in new U.S. business flowed to Moscow’s uranium industry.
William Douglas Campbell told The Hill his evidence included that Russia was intercepting nonpublic copies of international inspection reports on Tehran’s nuclear program and sending equipment, advice and materials to a nuclear facility inside Iran.
Campbell said Russian nuclear executives were extremely concerned that Moscow’s ongoing assistance to Iran might boomerang on them just as they were winning billions of dollars in new nuclear fuel contracts inside the United States."
And whose palsied fingers were all over the Uraniumm One deal? Anybody?
The more we look into "Russian collusion" the more it comes back to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. And they were happy to play Russian roulette with America's safety to make a few bucks and "remake America".
Antenora was the Ninth Circle of Hell - one of the lowest - where traitors to kin or country were damned to suffer in a frozen lake forever. I fear Mr. Obama and Madam Secretary Clinton may want to pack some thermal underwear for the hereafter.

"A Pennsylvania office of Planned Parenthood sent out a tweet Tuesday which read, "We need a Disney princess who’s had an abortion … who’s pro-choice … who’s an undocumented immigrant … who’s trans.”
None too surprisingly, the tweet was not well received and almost immediately deleted.

Clarice Feldman at American Thinker:
It is dispiriting in the face of so much administrative agency corruption to see on the internet so many people critical of the president for not vetoing the bill. He needs us now, for if he fails in the sweeping out of this evil, we are truly doomed, with the Constitution relegated to a merely historic document from a better age. more...

Two good pieces of news this morning.
First, President Trump's Pentagon has rejected the application of an atheist to be a Navy chaplain
Conservative HQ dishes:
. Our friend Dr. William Scott Magill of Veterans in Defense of Liberty and principled limited government constitutional conservative Republican Representatives Doug Lamborn (CO-5) and Vicki Hartzler (MO-4) led the Navy Chaplainsfight to deny outspoken atheist and secular humanist Jason Heap’s appointment to the Chaplain Corps.
Lamborn and Hartzler rallied forty-three Members of Congress to support the position that fundamentally, the chaplain corps is a religious institution that should ascribe to the religious needs of men and women in uniform. An individual with an avowed opposition to religion itself cannot fulfill the mission and duties of a chaplain, no matter how accomplished the candidate may be said Reps. Lamborn and Hartzler."

Robert Romano at Americans for Limited Government gives us some good news on the omnibus:
One good thing that came out of the omnibus spending bill signed into law by President Donald Trump is that it defunds a key aspect of the Obama era Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulation, Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing.
This was the rule enacted in 2015 that allowed HUD to order more than1,200 cities and counties that accepted any part of $3 billion of annual community development block grants to rezone neighborhoods along income and racial criteria.
This was always a vast overreach, where the federal government could come in and tell communities what must be built and where. Now, it’s over.more...
With Regards to the ‘March for our Lives’
Emotional Collectivism Makes You Vulnerable To Those With Bad Intentions
North Branford, CT, March 26, 2018: We have seen speakers, school walkouts and marches. They claim to be against ‘gun violence’. They claim to seek the end to school massacres. But even a perfunctory review of their messages shows that they are one of two things with regards to these goals: Ignorant or Liars.
Of the requests made by this vocal minority, we have hardly seen a coherent message, but instead a wide range of goals that all somehow involve disarming citizens of this country. Their talks and edicts seem focused around either restricting people who can buy, own or possess firearms or taking firearms from those who already have them. The talks rarely involve the philosophical or moral consequences of their actions. They do not discuss what happens to the people they seek to victimize by government force in the name of mourning those that they saw victimized.
So while Connecticut Carry continues its mission to defend the victims of these collectivists, we will also discuss what happens to the people that these collectivists seek to victimize and to speak about the uncomfortable truths that result when people are manipulated by politicians when they are the most emotional.
Read the rest at Connecticut Carry.
