If the shadow of Shadow is what it is, what is the shadow of “Shadow”?

img_20171208_1306162088395739.jpg

Shadow-dog has no shadow for the past few days as the clouds have made everything everywhere into one big shadow. He’s kind of a shadow of himself, a black hole into which all photons in the universe disappear. However, a very kind reader sent this in from a Texan Parson who also has an all-black German Shepherd. There is a wolfish revelation in the shadow of the otherwise innocuous looking GSD:

Meanwhile, my own “Shadow” has gone dark, or perhaps everything around him is so cast into shadow that he himself casts no shadow. I sent him a text reading: “Jerusalem capital…” He has no comment. Don’t read anything into this. He’s too “Gray” to figure out. Things are never as they seem. Ever. A shadow just looks the way it does because of angles. And then there are those who make puppets of shadows and even of a “Shadow;” and I don’t like that at all.

State Dept compromised: solutions?

Should the national security of the country be compromised to its very core in order to save the jobs of a few people, embarrassing just a few others? Isn’t that like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic? Those jobs won’t be there, and no one will care about any embarrassment. Compromising national security has consequences. There are tough words in the press conference above. But nothing is as it seems, ever.

Analyzing analysis of Devin Kelley: “Those stupid Christians deserve to get shot praying to a God who cannot save”

crucixion passion of the christ mel gibson

The main stream media has been assisting terrorists by flooding the news with what they consider to be a viable rationalization for slaughtering innocent men, women, children, infants and sucklings at the breast, namely, that they deserve everything they get for praying to God who cannot, who will not save them from such a death.

  • Last time I checked, humanity chose to be dumbed down into weakness of mind, weakness of will, with egotistic emotions all over the place, with sickness and death, by way of the just consequences of original sin chosen with the sin.
  • Last time I checked, God chose to come into this world to stand in our place, the innocent for the guilty, to take on what we deserve, death, the worst we can give out, so that He might have the right in His own justice to have mercy on us.
  • Last time I checked, God isn’t interested in taking away the consequences of original sin in this world (though in heaven, yes), because He respects our free will and He respects His own justice (upon which he founds His mercy for us).
  • Last time I checked, the way He saves us is not by taking us out of the violence, nor from sickness and death, but by giving us the possibility in His grace to choose to do the right thing, that is, walking in His friendship and participating in His goodness and kindness and respect for others throughout our lives and yes, even by praying in peace, yes, even in a church, yes, even despite the main stream media.
  • Last time I checked, there is a big difference between good and kind people who pray on the one hand and, on the other hand, smug, cynical, and bitter reporters apoplectically as full of hate as the terrorist himself.
  • Last time I checked, there is still a heaven for believers, and still a hell for the haters.

Oh, and, by the way, last time I checked, those who assist terrorists by offering them encouragement and ideology by which they can rationalize mass murder are themselves terrorists.

So, how is it that the main stream media are not also declared to be likely terrorists by the FBI, just like antifa and BLM? After all, the MSM are giving would-be terrorist their marching orders and all the rationalizations to support them.

Isn’t there a United Nations convention on terrorism which has it that those who foment such mass murder are to be brought to court on charges? Yes. And, by the way, I’ve used that at the United Nations against idiots who were fomenting genocide in a certain country in which I resided.

Analyzing spy Robert Philip Hanssen: the worst traitor in American history goes to Catholic Sacramental Confession

robert philip hanssen fbi russia spy

Why do I know this face? Somewhere in Rome or…

“Robert Philip Hanssen is a former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who spied for Soviet and Russian intelligence services against the United States for 22 years from 1979 to 2001” (Wikipedia).

The FBI has a press release here from just months before September 11, 2001. The History Channel (also youtube) provided much through original post-hoc interviews of the players. All this can be total fabrication, of course. The FBI has everything to gain by getting people to lie about this fellow. But, for the sake of argument, let’s just say it’s all true and then discuss why it is that it is said that he remains an enigma to the FBI in his actions, a mystery as to how he could live such a double life. There is no conundrum about it at all, that is, if we go by what the reports say.

Bob is Catholic. He repented. He went to Confession. I wasn’t there. I’m sure the priest didn’t talk about it. This information came from Bob himself. It’s said:

“He goes to a priest. And the priest says: ‘O.K., here’s what you’re gonna do. Don’t do it anymore. Donate the money to Mother Teresa and all will be forgotten.’ And that’s what happened.” — But seven years later he started spying again. — (Traitors Within)

The last statement about “again” is the key to the FBI’s misunderstanding, their wondering how it is that such a seemingly devout, conservative fellow would start up the espionage he had apparently sincerely given up. That “again” bit is an assumption that must be mistaken. The reason is that the espionage already effected had an ongoing effect continuing to put people at risk from the first confession right through any others. Giving up any money to charity, to “Mother Teresa,” doesn’t cut it. He would have to reverse the ongoing damage of putting people and indeed the entire country at grave risk. He would have to turn himself in.

But I don’t say that the priest should demand that he turn himself in before giving an absolution. After all, in turning himself in, Bob might not ever have the chance to go to Sacramental Confession again. So, O.K., the first confession the priest might give him an absolution telling him, however, that he shouldn’t try to come back for another absolution if he didn’t turn himself in. He might have a chance for confession in prison, right? Though maybe not. However, he would have to undo the ongoing damage his espionage was presently causing. Going to Confession multiple times without undoing ongoing damage to people and to the country isn’t right.

I will say this as well: I’m Pope Francis’ Missionary of Mercy. If some traitor or spy or whatever comes to me for Confession in the same situation as above, I’ll absolve him. And I will keep the secret unto death. Even under torture. Not to worry. Jesus has paid the price for those sins. It’s the least I can do. However, know that he won’t get any absolution the next time he comes to Confession if he hasn’t in the meantime turned himself in, that is, if what he has done still puts people’s lives at risk and he has to turn himself in in order to undo the damage. If what he’s done is a once off thing, like betraying a motorcade route, then he can come back to Confession again, even for the same thing. We’ll talk about what repentance means, and what a firm purpose of amendment means, and how not to fool oneself, to be sure. But he can come back to Confession.

Oh, and the conundrum about the double life of Robert Philip Hanssen? How can that be? Look, it goes back to the “again” thing. He didn’t start spying “again” seven years after confessing these things. He was always spying in that the effect of putting people and the entire country at risk was ongoing and he wasn’t doing a damn thing about it. This was working on him all the time. His hypocrisy manifested itself in other areas of his life. It had to. We’re not compartmentalized. He fooled his presumably multiple Confessors. He couldn’t fool his own soul. He was living off the adrenaline of the “power” of his espionage; he was being destroyed by the adrenaline of the “power” of his espionage. When he actively started up “again”, he just wanted another fix of what he never stopped.

Of course, he can repent of all this and now go to Confession once again. No one is a lost cause, ever. Again, what I’ve written above is merely hypothetical as we only know the “facts” through others, right? The priests can’t say anything, right? I presume they all did the right thing. What I’ve presented is a way that shows they could have done the right thing. Don’t blame them.

Note to his ultra-max prison: If you show this to Bob just like you showed him the documentary about himself, and he wants to go to Confession, let me know. I’ll happily make the trip out.

Governing governments by extortion: when alphabet soup becomes the mafia. Revisiting death in the Holy See

domus sanctae marthae entrata

Remember Miriam Woldu of Eritrea (34), “Front of House” receptionist at the Pope’s residence of Santa Marta? She was assassinated with her baby in her womb. Intense culpable homicide investigations began after the autopsy and examination of her medical supplies. After. It’s the mercenary guy in my opinion. The deaths were a shot over the bow. Some people said she was simply stupid. But you don’t get an Intelligence job as “Front of House” for the leader of 1.3 billion people by being incompetent. I think she was the best in the world at the can’t ever forget a face thing. At any rate, at the time, the Holy See was under enormous pressure not to influence the Italian referendum on “gay marriage”, so much so that many of the Cardinals, apoplectic, publicly, really almost shrieking, exclaimed that they weren’t saying anything whatsoever about anything whatsoever during the referendum. Sometimes it isn’t about not doing anything evil; it’s about not doing anything good. And sometimes some governments think that neglect needs to be encouraged with extortion.

Thinking of some other things taking place, or not, along the Tiber and along the Potomac, I went to get some advice yesterday with an alphabet soup friend. “Just ten minutes,” I said. “Sure, c’mon over,” he said. That turned into four hours, as always. The result was simply the statement of ultimatums. It comes down to the typical mafia-esque extortion, the shot over the bow kind of thing.

Two questions:

  • On the one hand, the question would be this: if I was being extorted by someone who was holding a friend’s life in the balance in front of me, would I still do the right thing, you know, for God and country and all that?
  • On the other hand, the question would be this: if a friend was being extorted by someone holding my own life in the balance in front of my friend, would I still encourage my friend to do the right thing, whatever about me, you know, for God and country and all that?

Two answers:

  • I would hope that no one would expect me to sin gravely even by neglect just so they could get a bit more time on this earth as opposed to going to heaven.
  • I would hope that no one would gravely sin even by neglect just so that I could get a bit more time on this earth as opposed to going to heaven.

I should hope that no one can be bought, replacing God’s love within us with empty mind games of moralizing self-congratulation, you know, “sophistication” and “doing what you have to do”. God’s love and truth is stronger than death and is our treasure and is irreplaceable.

Jesus’ heart could not be extorted, and so a sword pierced that heart in His tortured, crucified body. But God’s love and truth is stronger than death, and He has led the way. He is the way. I should hope we all say that we cannot be extorted.

“I’m here for killing Jews” Sean Patrick Nielson at Charlottesville massacre

35 injured, a half-dozen critically, 1 killed. Make that three dead. Two state police died in a helicopter crash surveilling the already declared to be illegal event. As far as I know, anything adverse happening to law enforcement because of illegal activities falls on the alleged perps.

The guy in the video above? I mean, if anyone hurt was a Jew — and there were a lot of Jews among counter-protesters, really a lot — would that make the guy in the video partly guilty? I’m a Catholic priest, but I’m also a Jew. All these violent supremacists are such cowards, hiding in their little cars, etc. Cowards always pick on the unarmed and vulnerable. Cowards.

B’nai B’rith has issued the following statement:

We vehemently condemn the white supremacist and neo-Nazi-backed sentiments and subsequent violence in Charlottesville, Va. The disgraceful rally these groups convened was for the express purpose of gathering hate-mongers and extremists to intimidate people all people and undermine the very principles of our democracy. Racist and anti-Semitic epithets were on vulgar display by these groups.

This abominable gathering serves as an important reminder that we must unite to stand against hatred and extremism. There are not “many sides” to the type of hate displayed at this rally.

From each individual through neighborhoods, communities, towns, cities, states and the nation as a whole, all Americans of good conscious must reject divisiveness and strive to embrace tolerance and unity.

Unmaskers and leakers: FBI’s SRT

Jeff Sessions crackdown (except for pesky levels of physical deniability and…)

jeff sessions

Trying to crack down on unmaskings and leaks coming from the cloak and dagger crowd has the truly impossible obstacle that the cloak and dagger crowd are really really good at creating physical levels of deniability. That’s what they do for a living, 24/7/365.

Reporters might not be prosecuted for reporting what they are told. We’re after the source, says Sessions. But what if there are physical levels of deniability, using a series of dead drops? This happens a million times a day. Too cloak and dagger for you?

Just as obstructionist as any dead drop that brings any investigation to a halt are the conflicts of interest that don’t let investigations go anywhere. I can think of any number of scenarios involving zero willingness to investigate anything whatsoever. Just weeks ago Jason Chaffetz resigned upon completion of his report on Fast and Furious.

But let’s take a case where the unmaskers and leakers are so desperate for self-promotion, are feeling so immortal and powerful that they couldn’t care less about physical levels of deniability, depending solely upon conflicts of interest to protect themselves. That would work well unless… unless… an unmasker of an unmasker had a number of avenues of recourse to remove the threats to national security (which threats simultaneously compromise the POTUS and which put individual lives at risk). And let’s say that those doing up an investigation know that about other levels of recourse which, however, leapfrog them because of their obstructionism. What are they to do?

Do the right thing.

Jeff Sessions crackdown: FBI’s new SRT

jeff sessions

  • A new Special Response Team in the FBI?
  • Unmaskers and leakers to be stopped?
  • Stopping the compromising of and threats to national security, the POTUS and key individuals targeted by terrorists now a priority?

Sounds great. But the system is made, though not on purpose, to produce and encourage traitors who live off the adrenaline of unmasking and leaking for personal gain. The alphabet soup crowd and even offices internal to whatever departments and agencies work against each other, even in the same building, without knowing it, or knowing it, giving a wink and a nod to each other. A game. America is the loser. Nothing is as it seems, ever.

We’ll see how this works out, or not. If it doesn’t work out, that’ll be embarrassing. There are other options to test the new determination. I can think of two, possibly three.

I like how Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein insists about all this. We’ll see.
