Rush Limbaugh is wrong about Catholic Church

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 31, 2014

Limbaugh gets-it on immigration, so he now needs to modify what he says about the Catholic Church! http://www.politico.com/story/2014/01/rush-limbaugh-gop-to-commit-suicide-102947.html

The other day I happened to catch a bit of Rush Limbaugh’s radio program and for the first time in over twenty years found myself shouting at the radio.  

If I understood him correctly in the portion of the show I heard, Limbaugh was pretty much saying that the Catholic Church/Pope was a paragon of conservatism and nothing anyone (especially Obama and pals!) could say would cause them to waver on issues such as abortion and gay marriage and for that the Left is p*****-off.

Is Rush ignorant of the role played by the hard left Catholic church in Obama’s rise in Chicago politics?

The Catholic Bishops stand to benefit financially from ‘immigration reform!’

It may be so (that the Church won’t be swayed) on those social issues, but Limbaugh apparently has no idea about how important the Catholic Church is, and especially the Bishops, on the issue of immigration and open borders.  They are as far-Left on that issue as they come, and it has little to do with compassion and everything to do with cold hard cash!

Come to think of it, I can’t really blame Limbaugh for not knowing that the Bishops are deep into the taxpayers’ wallets since the mainstream media NEVER mentions it.

The Bishops would be broke without the millions of dollars they get from US taxpayers. Then there is the taxpayer funding they get for some of the 120 illegal alien “kids” crossing the border each day. The Bishops have a contract with the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement for their care.

And, don’t forget the church helped bring the thousands of Muslims to Syracuse, NY which has now resulted in the travesty of a historic Catholic Church being converted to a mosque.

To illustrate where the Bishops are on open borders, this story from the Washington Post on Friday entitled, ‘US Catholic leaders hope church’s actions can revive immigration reform,’  pretty much says it all.

The news-hook is Obama’s visit with the Pope, but it’s all about the church’s lobbying efforts to bring about so-called ‘Comprehensive Immigration Reform’ which (if passed and signed into law) will benefit the Bishops financially as they will get more ‘clients’ (millions of clients) in need of ‘services’ (showing them how to get their welfare benefits) to add to the tens of thousands of refugees they now have on their client roster.

Read the WaPo article yourself and remember these deportation numbers are B.S. as Senator Sessions reported last week (it must be maddening for the Senator to see this propaganda).  ***Update*** More evidence that Obama is not deporting large numbers of aliens.

And, get ready for the Bishops publicity stunt at the border this week where they plan to mimic the Pope’s visit last summer to the beleaguered Italian island of Lampedusa.

Hey Rush, how about putting some qualifiers in when you praise the Bishops the next time!

France “black Sunday” as National Front party gains power

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 31, 2014

Marine Le Pen’s National Front party shocked French socialists yesterday with wins in local elections.

From itv.com:

French voters have dealt a severe blow to Francois Hollande’s Socialist government in local elections.

The anti-immigration far right, which claims that France’s large Muslim population is “Islamicising” the nation, made solid advances, fulfilling National Front promises to begin building a grass-roots base.

Socialist leaders conceded defeat in the final round of the voting seen as a referendum on unpopular President Hollande, who was expected to reshuffle the cabinet in an effort to give his government a boost.

Vive la France !

RRW had a great last twelve months!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 31, 2014

I don’t know what changed, but in April 2013 something happened and our readership jumped by from 10,000-20,000 a month since then.

Just now I was checking the stats to see how we’ve been doing and noticed that remarkable trend upward.  At the same time, I checked to see from where readers were coming.  Of course the largest number comes from the US, but checking the last month I see we had readers in 148 countries in March (officially there are 196 countries in the world, give or take a few).

The top countries represented by our visitors, after the US, are (in descending order):  UK, Australia, Canada, Germany, France, Thailand, India, South Africa, Malta and the Netherlands.  Right behind those top ten are Sweden and Norway.  LOL!  We even had 103 visitors from Saudi Arabia in March!

We are most pleased by having added 48 new followers in the past month.  We have a modest goal of adding one new follower a day, so we beat that by a mile in March.  You can follow us by signing up here (upper left hand sidebar), or follow us on facebook (here).    Yikes! 47,532 people saw our facebook page in the last week.  Half of those facebook numbers can be attributed to the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society post—bring in the Syrians.

We tweet out all of our posts here.   For a narrowly focused blog, we are overjoyed with the numbers!

If you are a new reader, we have a great search function, type in a word or two and see what we have written since 2007 about your interests.  I use it all the time to search our 5,473 previous posts!   And, if you are visiting daily you might be interested in our Top Posts (in the right hand sidebar) to see what other readers are interested in.

My deepest apologies for being so awful about checking your e-mails.  I must dump that yahoo e-mail address and get something better.  It is so filled with spam that I have to force myself to look at it and clean it up (mostly because there are only so many hours in a day and there is so much interesting news on which to post).

And, a reminder, as always, that RRW is a completely charitable project by its authors.  And, if the Catholics, Lutherans, Evangelicals, Jews, and atheists would do their work without digging into the taxpayers’ pockets, giving their own personal money and time to the poor they claim to care about, we could quit!
