[Catholic Herald] Fr Nicolai Dubinin has become the first Russian to be appointed a Catholic bishop since the fall of communism.
Last Thursday, Pope Francis appointed the 47-year-old Conventual Franciscan as auxiliary bishop for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Moscow and designated him the Titular See of Acque di Bizacena.
Since Church institutions were re-established after the fall of communism, no Russian nationals had been appointed Catholic bishops before now.

[Catholic Monitor] Deadpan comedy. He claims to want to fight Alinsky inspired socialistic tyranny in the United States, but joined One Peter Five publisher Steve Skojec in his campaign for Alinsky inspired socialistic coronavirus tyranny.
Why isn't Gordon, an opponent of Black Live Matters like all sane people, who is supposed to be the great defenders of the U.S. Constitution fighting Skojec, pro-abortion eugenicist Michael Savage and the globalists' COVID-19 unconstitutional totalitarian lockdowns and tyranny?

According to Browder, it is not the working class [proletariat] but the Communist Party that makes the revolution. "The revolution is carried out by the great masses of toilers. The Communist Party as the vanguard of the most conscious toilers acts as their organizer and guide." (Ibid., p. 163.)
It's important to point out that the International Communist Party has its headquarters in Moscow from which it exerts its influence and control in the West. And while it is generally believed that Communism fell in the early 90s, The Communists have continued building their forces to this day. The "operation of error to believe lying" (2 Thess. 2:10) has all but bewitched the West, the major lie being that Communist Russia collapsed.

Edit: Dons Quixote and Minutella are far more admirable than shills like John Allen and most of the Italian senior clergy.
ROME – In Cervantes’ famed novel Don Quixote, the lead character is a deluded noble who imagines himself a knight and lives in a chivalric world of his own imagination. The story has proved so popular it’s even given us a word, “quixotic,” to mean someone who’s unrealistic, impractical, driven by unattainable ideals.
If Cervantes were alive today and living in Italy, he wouldn’t need to dream up such a figure. All he’d probably need to do is to follow around Father Alessandro Maria Minutella.
Minutella, who’ll turn 47 in September, is a Sicilian priest who was declared excommunicated latae santentiae by Cardinal Corrado Lorefice of Palermo in 2017, for the crimes of “heresy and schism.” He’s a fierce traditionalist who now aspires to lead what he calls the “Catholic resistance,” forming a “small remnant” who spurn the “false Bergoglian church” (a reference to Pope Francis’s given name) and declare their allegiance to Pope Benedict XVI (who, of course, has never solicited such a following.)

Looks Bad for Peddler of Maudlin Fake Catholic Ditties GIA as Sex Abuse Claims Mount Against Degenerate Folk Singer
(CNN)Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have a special reason to celebrate this week: they're both officially Greek citizens.
In a picture posted on social media by the country's prime minister, the two proudly hold up their brand new passports.
The couple and their children became honorary Greek citizens last year -- after officials highlighted Hanks' role in helping raise awareness about the 2018 fires that devastated areas near Athens and claimed the lives of more than 100 people.
See the discussion about this group starting at 59:00.
[Boston Herald] The organizers of a young Republican group who oppose President Trump say they want to build the GOP of the future by staying away from “unproductive discourse” and providing a better alternative to the left.
Called Gen Z GOP, the nationally focused group with Massachusetts roots officially launched over the weekend with a social media video that lays out a vision for a new Republican Party that attracts the newest generation of voters.
The group “vehemently opposes” a lot of what the left stands for today, said Samuel Garber, a freshman at Bates College.

[Gloria.tv] Last week, Eichstätt Bishop Gregor Hanke, Germany, sent a monk, a former prosecutor, to Rome to inquire about Eichstätt Monsignor Christoph Kühn, 57.
While he was working in the Vatican, Kühn is accused of having “homosexually assaulted” and bullied adult collaborators, who, by the way, could easily have defended themselves.
The information was published by the German fake-news Bild.de which was fed by Alexander Stevens, the lawyer of one of the anonymous “victims”. It’s a common practice of lawyers to use the media in order to push for their side of the story.
Stevens’ client, a priest, makes the unlikely claim that the assaults caused in him depression and psychological problems and made his mother attempt suicide.
Kühn worked in nunciatures in Simbabwe and Zambia before becoming the head of the German-speaking section in the Secretary of State (2001-2008).
From there he was - for obvious reasons - demoted to collaborator of the nunciature in Vienna, Austria (2008-2012), before being further demoted and made a canon of the cathedral chapter in Eichstätt, his home diocese. In May 2019 he was granted a leave from all his functions.
According to Bild.de, Archbishop Viganò who has been the personnel officer in the Secretary of State, presented a four-page-testimony to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith regarding the case.
Kühn’s homosexual adventures were never a mystery and well known far beyond the Vatican. However, in today’s Church, priests are punished for standing up for the Faith and liturgy, not for promoting immorality and heresy.
Fr. Patrick McCorkell, SJ has been suspended from public ministry pending the outcome of an investigation by the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis.
I got this from Randy Engel not long after she became aware of the video:

What is he doing now?
|Arturo's blog is here|
Wait a second. The question Taylor Marshall needs to ask (assuming he doesn't already know the answer): Why, if I'm telling the truth, aren't my videos being pulled off of YouTube??
General Michael T. Flynn, on two public appearances: he was the whipping boy of a staged criminalization. Now he has been rehabilitated and is directly addressing the Americans with an appeal to fight and prayer.
US General Michael T. Flynn became a victim of Obamagate. What is meant is the scandal that came to light through recently released secret documents. In his most recent requests to speak, the general addressed the Americans directly.
From the documents that have now been released, it appears that the general, who was appointed National Security Advisor at the beginning of President Donald Trump's term in office but had to resign after only three weeks, was the victim of a targeted intrigue by the then FBI director James Comey. Comey, whom Trump's predecessor had appointed, did not act on his own initiative, but at the request of ex-President Barack Obama, under the co-operation of his Vice President and now Democratic Party presidential candidate, Joe Biden, and other Democrats.
General Flynn was attacked because they couldn't hit Trump directly, but at least wanted to weaken him. The attack also affected the general personally and his foreign policy and geopolitical convictions. Flynn had been accused of those ominous contacts with Russia that Trump opponents have alleged but have not proven over the past four years as charges against the incumbent US President. At the beginning of the year, they literally vanished into thin air.
The documents now available reveal that the "Russia Connection" was nothing more than a dirty invention, as attentive observers had suspected from the start.
Flynn is one of the most famous and charismatic generals in the US Army. His reputation was so great that he managed to influence the foreign policy of the US presidents he served by interfering with plans by the Clinton and Obama governments.
In 2014, when he publicly addressed the background to the rise of the Islamic State (IS) jihad militia, it cost him his position as DIA director (Defense Intelligence Agency). Flynn had said in an Al Jazeera interview that he had informed Obama about the rise of Syrian terrorism, but "the government has decided to ignore our information deliberately, by continuing to do what it does," namely to promote the IS.
The general said even more: in 2016, he was one of the first and highest-ranking personalities to speak of the existence of a corrupt deep state. On Twitter he described the Pizza gate scandal as true. Hillary Clinton, the wife of former US President Bill Clinton and then Democratic Party presidential candidate, and some of her campaign strategists, the general said, were involved in pedophile and money laundering rings. Flynn's reputation also let those take notice that Pizza Gate had been previously dismissed as an election year "conspiracy theory".
A few months later, Donald Trump won the presidential election to the horror of Hillary Clinton, the U.S. establishment, and the globalists. Trump brought the general in his government team and appointed him National Security Adviser . But just a few weeks later, General Flynn was hunted down by those he had criticized.
In May 2020, all charges against him were dropped. A federal judge still did not want to let him off the hook. A well-known way to paralyze someone through the Damocles sword of trial. Now the general was finally relieved and rehabilitated.
A conversation between two FBI agents about the general had appeared in the Obamagate files. It discussed how a false charge could be constructed against the general to bring him to justice and to drive him out of office. The conversation also shows that the intrigue against the general was controlled by the FBI leadership.
Flynn has since written two articles addressing Americans directly, stating that the struggle is more important than the previous presidential election. A struggle that cannot be won unless you look at it from an eschatological perspective.
Just as Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò wrote in a letter to US President Trump, General Flynn stated in Western Journal that "there is a small, zealous group of people who are working hard to destroy our American way of life."
It is two percent who want to take possession of the rest of the population because they are indifferent. The general wrote on June 29:
"If we don't act, two percent of the people are going to control the other 98 percent."
He stressed that the majority of the American people, the "silent majority", must act. They must act consciously that this is a collision between "two opposing forces: the 'children of light' and the 'children of darkness'."
"As a Virginia police officer told me, people in their homes no longer feel safe and our police forces are so demoralized that we cannot operate as we should. In my 23 years of service I have never seen such depressed morale."
The general describes urban guerrilla warfare as an attack on democracy.
"It is necessary to support the police", but also "to challenge every politician at all levels" to do his duty. According to the general, this attack on the order and symbols of American history aims to establish socialism.
"And in the final analysis, to chase God out of our families, our schools and our courts ... even our churches, with the aim of banishing God from our daily lives."
According to General Flynn, "most mistakes in war and life result from inertia," but in the action described above where the silent majority rises can ensure that "we can prevail." It should not be forgotten, according to the General, "that even our enemies (the dark forces) have difficulties." And even if "for the majority of Americans these forces seem to be strong," said the military strategist, "only a little pressure is required on our part, that's all we have to do to defeat these forces." To do this, however, indolence must be overcome and the willingness to resist must grow. The General informed US citizens that this "little pressure", which was enough, consisted of "action" and "prayer". At an earlier article he had written:
"Although we feel that we have descended into a hellish state of existence, we must never forget that hell is not invincible."It could be defeated by prayer, a fearful conscience, willingness to make sacrifices, and the awareness of good and evil "that we have received from God."
"If we want to survive, we have to fall back on the God-given values and ideals that form the basis of our constitutional republic."And further:
"Prayer is the greatest weapon, and becoming aware of God is the ultimate 'thought of the day.'"The scenario for the children of light is now terrifying, but one should not "fear the uncertainty that results from the unknown, but accept it and we fight through this feeling of fear." Optimism, which should not become exuberance, which turns into despair at the first difficulty, is necessary in war.
"We have to remember: The power of hell is strong, but limited. God is the final judge and decision maker. As long as we accept God as the elixir of life for our nation, we will be safe. "
Otherwise you would really "go to a hellish existence".

“If you insist on using political labels to identify Catholics, here’s the way it works: the “liberals” aren’t interested in us because we make fun of them. The “conservatives” like us until they find out our histories, because there’s no worse epithet – not “pagan,” not “Protestant,” not even “heretic” – in a conservative Catholic’s vocabulary than “ex-priest,” a word which comes with a “p” conveniently built in so it can be virtually spit out of contemptuous lips. ”

As its devotees state, it is a parish unlike any other in America. It has no boundaries, no assigned clergy, no Masses or devotions and no parishioners. It also takes up no collections. But its fans call St. Blog’s Parish the wave of the future for the Catholic Church in America because it the first circle of Catholic writers in the world known as cyberspace. But then it wasn’t just America’s Catholics who have been caught up in admiration about the expansive power of the Internet. The demographic bulge known as the Baby Boom and their progeny have been caught up in the endless adulation over the great potential in the expansion of knowledge that an ever increasing number of web sites and blogs are said to create. However, some observers have said that the creation of celebrity on the internet and the fanning of causes such as the demonizing of countries like Iraq before the American invasion of 2003 are just the clever manipulation of traditional crowd psychology by unseen agents while appealing to the viewers pride by telling them that they are getting cutting edge information. Starting with the Baby Boomers, Americans became more concerned of how their counterparts thought on any given issue and as economic commentators Bill Bonner and Addison Wiggin state in Financial Reckoning Day: Surviving the Soft Depression of the 21st Century, “What has never been fully realized is the extent to which-unlike any previous group in the history of man-the boomers were subject to the madness of crowds on a monumental scale. The boomers adopted every idea that appealed to them and dumbed it down … broadcast it … vulgarized it … and took it up as they would their favorite pop song.”

Bishop Schneider deplores how in response to COVID-19 "Many dioceses around the world [have] mandated Communion in the hand, and in those places the clergy, in an often-humiliating manner, deny the faithful the possibility to receive the Lord kneeling and on the tongue, thus demonstrating a deplorable clericalism and exhibiting the behavior of rigid neo-Pelagians.”
