  • “I ain’t buying it.”
    My favorite line from the movie Guardians of the Galaxy:
    Rocket: Attention, idiots! The lunatic on the top of this craft is holding a Hadron Enforcer, a weapon of my own design.
    Yondu: What the hell?
    Rocket: If you don’t hand over our companions now, he’s gonna tear your ship a new one. A very big new one.
    Yondu: I ain’t buyin’ it.

  • An interesting CNN anomaly is the “link or feed,” suddenly goes down when an interviewer is speaking of Jesus on said network. I came across this phenomenon a while back while visiting you tube.
    It also happens on occasion when a conservative view is becoming difficult for the reporter on CNN and MSNBC to debate.

    There are many to choose from.

    Here’s a couple; https://youtu.be/IdYRN8Clddw

    The last one is compelling.
    NFL player Benjamin Watson speaks of Jesus Christ and forgiveness of sin and CNN can’t stomach it.

    Are some of these drops legitimate?
    Could be.

    CNN is not a bonafide news network.
    Not at all.
    It’s a propaganda machine plain and simple.

  • Info please. I am working on artlcle to submit to K.C. magazine, The Columbian. It began Medal of Honor Catholic Priests. I am expanding it to Catholic religious in US military. Any help, even list of names would be great help.

  • Hi Scotth, Suggest you contact the Military Archdiocese at http://www.milarch.org. No priest can serve in the US military without first being credentialed by this military ordinariate. Since you have researched MOH Catholic Priests you have info on Fr. Vincent Capodanno, now titled Servant of God since his canonization cause has been opened. The late CAPT Jake Laboon, USN CHC was USNA ’44 and was awarded the Silver Star for diving off his subarmarine to rescue a downed aviator in WWII. LCDR William Dorwart, USNR, CHC served on a carrier as an Aviation Ordnanceman before graduating from college and joining the Congregation of Holy Cross. He was the NAS Cubi Pt, PI chaplain in 1987 and was last seen conducting a burial at Arlington National Cemetery as a Naval District Washington chaplain. The Diocese of Arlington VA currently has two young priests preparing to become navy chaplains. Also in the diocese is Fr. Michael Duesterhaus, a naval reservist, who was on active duty in Djibouti and with the marines in Iraq. His lecture about those two assignments was excellent. IMHO military chaplains are a cut above, a special breed whether army, navy or air force. One day while on an army post I saw a nun in a traditional habit it turned out that she was a hospital sister in Washington DC and an army reservist surgeon. She had been on active duty in Iraq and Afghanistan while a nun. I would have liked to learn more details but we ran out of time.

Bitter Harvest

Thursday, February 23, AD 2017

 

 

 

On one side, millions of starving peasants, their bodies often swollen from lack of food; on the other, soldiers, members of the GPU carrying out the instructions of the dictatorship of the proletariat. They had gone over the country like a swarm of locusts and taken away everything edible; they had shot or exiled thousands of peasants, sometimes whole villages; they had reduced some of the most fertile land in the world to a melancholy desert.

Malcolm Muggeridge – British foreign correspondent, War on the Peasants, Fortnightly Review, 1 May, 1933 

Eighty-five years too late, a movie on the Great Famine of 1932-1933 in the Soviet Union is being released tomorrow.  Some six million people were murdered by starvation in Stalin’s man made famine, and almost all of these people died in the most agriculturally fertile areas of the Soviet Union, especially the Ukraine.  This was Stalin’s way of imposing collectivization on the recalcitrant farmers of his empire, while eliminating the opposition to Communist rule in the countryside.  For Stalin the mass deaths were a feature not a bug.  While all this was going on most Western journalists in the Soviet Union actively attempted to conceal the existence of the famine.  Only a few brave journalists like Malcolm Muggeridge, then a partisan of the left, had the courage to speak out and tell honestly what they had seen with their own eyes.  Walter Duranty, who was awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 1932 for his reports from the Soviet Union,  of the New York Times denounced journalists who reported on the famine.  “Fake news” has a long pedigree on the left in this country.

  • Stalin said: ” to kill one man is homicide. To kill 30,000,000 is a statistic.” Stalin enjoyed the death and dying of other people. The Russians tore up floor boards to get at grandma’s hidden preserves.

  • The Reds killed approximately 100 million of their people during the 20th century. In 1973, five (?) US Supreme Court justice set in motion the killings of 57 million and counting American gestational human persons. “And the beat goes on.”

  • We know a lot about the Holocaust and little about the Great Famine because there were few cameras in the Ukraine.

  • John Schuh: Too many Americans justify what Stalin did. One person cannot own another person” A. Lincoln. I was once told that Russia was justified because Russia needed the food. Ebeneezer Scrooge said, that many years ago: “Let Tiny Tim die and reduce the population.+ Nothing new here.

  • Watch “The Soviets” when it’s rerun on your local PBS. It’s chilling. At first Stalin selected specific groups and areas like the Ukraine to be anihilated. Then it got so Kruschev and the like would just ask Stalin for a quota of humans to kill…a 100,000 here, 200,000 there. Depravity.

  • This looks like the year for genocide films. The Promise, a film about the Armenian Genocide, will be out in April.

  • Bitter Harvest is getting panned all over the place. Too bad. It is the kind of film that needed to have been made. Perhaps the DVD edition could be used in fast forward to get a good presentation of the real events.
