Someone tell President Obama: Truth Distortion Fields Don’t Work on Pope Francis


Francis in prayer: “Lord Jesus, give me the words to say.” Obama in photo-op: “Geez, this room is huge; that teleprompter is FAR away.”

I’m really embarrassed — and irritated — that our President can’t even have the decency to be forthright and open about his meetings with the Holy Father and the Vatican’s Secretary of State.

Why do I think that the President — and not the Vatican — is telling tales? Because, prior to Pope Francis receiving President Obama in audience earlier today, a story ran on the Vatican Radio website on March 26 (Vatican Radio is under the direction of Fr. Federico Lombardi, head of the Holy See Press Office) entitled “Pope Francis to meet with President Obama on Thursday“, the last paragraph of which states:

His [Obama’s] upcoming audience with Pope Francis will take place in the context of a complex phase of the administration’s relations with the Church of the United States, marked, in particular, by controversy on the implementation of health care reform (the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” commonly known as “Obamacare”) having to do with rules on mandatory health care coverage of sterilization, contraception, and abortion; and on other issues at the centre of public debate in the United States, such as the legalization of homosexual marriages.

According to this, the news article was sent to the press by Fr. Thomas Rosica, who is Fr. Lombari’s “English language assistant.” In other words, it was likely issued with Fr. Lombardi’s approval and not by some low-level functionary. We can take from this that these issues were important enough to the discussion to mention publicly before Pope Francis received the President in audience.

Then, earlier today the Vatican issued a statement following the President’s audience with Pope Francis, which described the topics of the meeting:

…there was a discussion on questions of particular relevance for the Church in that country, such as the exercise of the rights to religious freedom, life and conscientious objection, as well as the issue of immigration reform. Finally, the common commitment to the eradication of trafficking of human persons in the world was stated.

Both statements are direct and to the point. The issues were identified. The one released before the audience mirrors the one that followed it. Neither explicity mentioned the issue of “economic equality” that the President and White House kept trumpeting. Instead — almost uncharacteristically — the Vatican/Fr. Lombardi endeavored to clearly define the principal issues on the table, both before and after the meeting.

You would think that the President would check his words carefully, so as not to be seen as contradicting or disputing the Vatican.

Apparently, only the photo opportunity actually mattered to the President, because during a press conference after the audience, the President could not even bring himself to admit what was actually discussed.

President Obama said, “We actually didn’t talk a whole lot about social schisms in my conversations with His Holiness. In fact, that really was not a topic of conversation…” According to this, “Obama was vague in his description of the extent of his discussion of the ACA’s contraceptive mandate with the pope, saying that Francis ‘actually did not touch in detail’ on the issue:

Obama described two main topics of conversation during his meeting with the pope — “the poor, the marginalized, those without opportunity and growing inequality” and conflicts around the world, especially in the Middle East and Latin America. The common theme throughout their discussion was “a belief that that in politics and in life the quality of empathy — the ability to stand in somebody else’s shoes and to care for them even if they don’t look like you, talk like you… — that’s critical,” he said.

The Vatican says both before and after the audience, these are the issues that matter to us. These are the things we want to discuss and in fact did discuss. But the President, perpetually operating in his own “truth sphere“, says “Not really.”

It’s one thing to say, “What the Holy Father and I discussed is between me and the Holy Father.” But that’s not what the President said.

  2. An Open letter to all my Catholic Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus

    As Baptized and Confirmed Disciples of Jesus Christ, the time has come for us to face the stark reality, that the America we love and cherish, is rapidly being robbed and distorted of her Great character as an Honorable Nation, by parasitic criminals so vile and corrupt, as to contribute nothing to the betterment of mankind, but to choose instead, a life of lies and deception, as their chosen criminal lifestyle of coerciveness and destruction upon unsuspecting victims. Whether it be Wall Street, or Main Street, “Avarice” is always the same. A deliberate disloyalty, betrayal, treason, theft or robbery, especially by violence, trickery, or, worst of all, the manipulation of authority, to enrich oneself, with no concern whatsoever, for the devastating consequences their actions bring to our nation, innocent persons, families, and society at large.

    Within this ladder of disgrace, we see all to often the reenactments of those “Seven Deadly Sins” of humanity, being played out on the nightly news, in real time security video footage of depraved individuals who think nothing of walking up behind a defenseless and unsuspecting soul, and punching them to the ground with such ferocity and indifference, as to leave them hurt, bleeding and unconscious, with serious bodily injury, and for many; irreparable brain damage. Is there any doubt in anyone’s mind, that such an attacker, is anything but a malicious and deranged coward who has already surrendered his soul to the evil one?

    Think about this unhinged, perverted, and callus behavior for a moment; is this not any different, than what we now see fermenting in the avaricious, and power hungry ideology of the Obama Administration, along with his Democratic Party Office Holders in Washington DC? To likewise inflict upon “Holy Innocence” (with the same fury once displayed by Herod) against defenseless and unsuspecting babies in the protective wombs of their mothers, through their manipulation of authority, in order to enrich themselves with absolute political power, with no concern whatsoever, for the devastating consequences their actions bring to our nation, innocent persons, families, and society at large.

    Obama and his political legions, of whom many proudly call themselves “Catholic” have already cast their diabolical vote in support of their HHS Mandate in the Affordable Health Care Act, to force (under penalty of law) the Catholic Church, and devout Christians across the country to pay for the wholesale killing of innocent babies in the womb at our expense, as they supplied in FY 2013, alone, over a half Billion (tax payer dollars) from HHS in grants and subsidies’ to fund Planned Parenthood Abortions clinics across the Country.

    These babies, (millions of them) will never see it coming! They will be attacked (not with a “clenched fist” from behind) but rather, from within the protective womb of their own mothers, they will be brutally attacked with “metal instruments” designed to puncture and dismember body parts, their tiny arms and legs, will be torn apart, limb by limb, they will be tortured, mutilated, scalded with toxic chemicals, and put to death, under their muffled and silent screams, that cry out loudly to Almighty God; for justice. These live babies, arrested and booked within the walls of Planned Parenthood’s Death Row Abortion Prisons, having been sentenced to a horrible death; with no trial, no jury, no defense, (other than those poor souls praying outside the abortion clinics) are pleading for your help.

    This is what Abortion is America!

    For the love of God; wake-up America! Obama and the entire Democratic Party would rather you call these torturous killings of live babies in the womb, not as some horrible crime against humanity and holy innocence, but rather frame it in the more simpler “Pro-Choice” vernacular (of lies and deception) and refer to this merely as a simple “pregnancy termination.” Truly a
    delusional mindset, to make Abortion killing comparable to that of a Canceled Check

    Not so for the baby screaming in pain who has no choice. So what do we really call this black-death curse on our Nation? Pro-Choice or Pro-Death? What do you think Almighty God; calls it? If the baby could speak, it would say to us, that I am a Human Person, I am alive, I am innocent of all crime, please don’t let them kill me and take away my life!

    One other minor detail I should mention, “Planned Parenthood” says, that they will funnel 16-Million Dollars in fourteen states, in this year’s 2014, mid-term democratic elections to take back the House and keep the Senate. Of course they will, why wouldn’t they? Perhaps I’m wrong but doesn’t this have all the appearances of impropriety? The appearance of a “Quid quo pro” kick back of blood money first given to Planned Parenthood by Obama’s, HHS Mandate in the form of forced taxes on Christians to help planned Parenthood kill tens of millions of more live innocent babies in the womb?

    How diabolical and widespread is this?

    How about, “Thank you Planned Parenthood – God Bless You!” These are the words of President Barack Obama….after giving his key note address to Planned Parenthood in Washington DC
    God Bless You? For what Mr. President? All the holy work Planned Parenthood is doing with their merciless torture, dismemberment, and bludgeoning deaths of Holy Innocence? For Obama, as the sitting President of the United States, to publically call upon Almighty God; to “Bless” (which means to Sanctify) the killing fields of Planned Parenthood; is no different in substance, than if he were to ask, Almighty God; to Bless the work of the Nazi Party, knowing of the diabolical and untold torturous killing of innocent Jews and Christians.

    It is a most egregious Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit; to call upon Almighty God; to Sanctify and Bless the Diabolical slaughter of Holy Innocence, going on daily at Planned Parenthood Abortion clinics across our nation, which is the work of Satan’s kingdom. For the love of our loving God; Wake-up Catholic America! It is Obama and the entire Democratic Party that is doing this to innocent children in the womb. Not one republican voted for this bill. The Democratic Party has forced this law down our throats, and they want to take over the entire Country with their entire agenda of evil, to destroy Marriage, the family, our schools, military, and our entire way of life.
    There is a Battle Going on here, Whose side are you on?

    As Catholic Christians, we are duty bound by our Baptismal Vows to continue our Baptismal Promise to Almighty God; to reject Satan in all his works, and in all his empty promises. We profess our belief in God; the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord, who was born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, died, and was buried, rose from the dead, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father. We also professed our belief in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.

    As Catholics we are obligated by our Christian Faith to do everything in our power that we can, to stop this wholesale carnage of innocence, and abolish this HHS mandate before it is too late. Whether Democrat, Republican, or Independent, our Love and Obedience to the Commandments of Almighty God; must be greater than any enthusiasm we may have for any individual Politician or Political Party that would promote such a horrible agenda, lest we all perish as a nation. This heartless carnage and death of innocent babies cries out to Almighty God; for justice, which has reached enormous proportions, much greater in number than that of Hitler’s Holocaust?

    (Isaiah 5:20)

    “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil”.
