Did you know that........ the following were the capital errors of US
Intelligence which opened the doors to the bombing of Pearl Harbor?
1. The U.S. Intelligence had, by the Summer of 1940, cracked the Japanese
communication code used by their diplomatic corps. From then on, the U.S. had free access to all
information to and from Tokyo handled by the Japanese Embassy in Washington, D.C.
However, at times the messages
accumulated for as much as a week before being decoded and, after being decoded,
it took additional time before they would reach the
appropriate "desks" in the D.C. maze.
2. The only surveillance the U.S. kept in the Pacific was on the south
because that was the area normally used by the Japanese. [Naturally, the Japanese hit from the
3. The U.S. war planes were not inside their specially designed refuges
because General Short was afraid of sabotage by the local Japanese residents, thus kept them in
4. The huge Japanese squadron, 353 aircraft, was picked up by the radar of
Kahuku Point at 7:15 A.M. (less than one hour before the attack). The squadron was assumed to be a
group of (only) twelve (!) B-17s that were expected from the mainland.
5. On the day of the attack, five hours AFTER the last raid, a
telegraph dispatcher delivered, via bicycle, a telegram to the General Headquarters of Admiral
Kimmel. It was a copy, for Admiral Kimmel's information, of a message from General Marshall to
This telegram, transmitted via commercial systems, was intended to warn the
military command of Hawaii that, having the Japanese presented an ultimatum on December 7th at
7:30 A.M. (Hawaii time), it would-be a good idea "to be on guard".

I just watched the EWTN show 'The World Over" with Raymond Arroyo - Opus Dei (OD). Benedict's book
was the headline story, for which Arroyo had George Weigel (OD) as the spin-master.
I found it quite interesting that Arroyo overtly cited the 'male prostitute' phrase - yet glided
right over it to spend 15 minutes endlessly spinning what Benedict said about condoms. To the
point of absurdity.
In light of this and the rest of the 'spinning', my observation is that this all has one end: to
destroy the little Faith that is left among the people.
As an organist can play on more than one keyboard simultaneously (even three), they are playing
off the secular media against the various elements of the religious media. Each taking different
sides, intentionally sowing confusion. In the final analysis, they do not care what you
believe..... as long as you heed and believe them.
OD is master of the Dialectic (1); and the
goal of this one is that the viewer or listener will heed them, no matter how incoherent the
"Let a hundred flowers bloom" as Mao said. The same was done in Euro Communism. Whatever the Party
says, it is true! Even if they are saying 10 different things, or changing positions weekly.
The 'male prostitute' is both a Freudian Slip and an intentional Red Herring
(1) Dialectic (also called dialectics or the dialectical
method) is a method of argument, which has been central to both Indic and Western philosophy since
(2) A "Red Herring" is a fallacy in which an irrelevant
topic is presented in order to divert attention from the original issue.

“‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’She has
become a dwelling for demons and a haunt for every impure spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird,
a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal. 3 For all the nations have drunk the maddening
wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and
the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”
4 Then I heard another voice from heaven say:
“‘Come out of her, my people,’so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not
receive any of her plagues; 5 for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her
21 Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a
large millstone and threw it into the sea, and said: “With such violence the great city of
Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found again.

Babylon the Great to fall since the angel is announcing it as something that already has happened;

retransmitted by China’s state-owned China Telecommunications, effectively forcing data from the
United States and other countries to pass through Chinese computer servers. A similar

analysis of historical trends and past research, as well as four experiments they designed.
The study highlights the psychological importance of personal control of one's destiny in
providing security. When someone feels personal matters are out of control, an external force --
either government or God -- can ensure things are under control. The order provided by a higher

The omitted verse does not mean that a man becomes dirty when he engages in reproductive activity

it extends into the miracle of Transubstantiation - but m de P is not allowed to do so at this

astronomers at the European Southern Observatory in Chile.
It's the first planet ever detected inside the Milky Way that's believed to be foreign-born. About

We culled an initial suspect list of more than 100 names to 75, and then asked seven Forbes
editors to rank them in all four categories. Those ranks were averaged to produce the final list.
Obviously our rankings are not intended to be definitive; they are meant to spark a
conversation--even an argument or two.
They certainly produced some surprises. The editors picked Hu Jintao, president of the People's
Republic of China, as the world's most powerful man, ahead of U.S. President Barack Obama (No. 2).
Julian Assange (No. 68), the editor-in-chief of WikiLeaks, snuck onto the list in last place,
while many traditional media types, including Mark Thompson, the director-general of the BBC, fell
off altogether. In a clear sign of the times, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg (No. 40) ranked 10
spots higher than Bill Keller (No. 50, the executive editor of The New York Times.
Power can be used for good or for ill, and three criminals made the list this year: al-Qaida
founder Osama bin Laden (No. 57); Joaquín Guzmán (No. 60), the billionaire drug trafficker who
heads Mexico's Sinaloa Cartel; and Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar (No. 63), who runs a vast criminal
enterprise in India and who is thought to have had a hand in the 2008 terror attacks that killed
174 people in Mumbai. These rankings are not meant to justify or glorify these odious men. They

There are different theories about what was behind the sighting of those fireballs. A NASA

The spacecraft flew past Hartley 2 -- taking closeup pictures after the comet made one of its

But one expert is skeptical of reports that any fireballs came from Hartley -- which is roughly
1.2 kilometres wide and spews deadly cyanide gas.
Scientist Peter Brown says his meteor group at the University of Western Ontario tracked one of
two fireballs while the other was tracked by NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office.

After a drop in followers of the faith, one industrious priest decided that the best way to get
the youth back to church was to offer a party in the sacred crypt that holds the remains of church
bishops and cardinals from eras gone by.
In the back of the “club” is a confessional for those who want to take another step in getting
closer to the church. Not a bad idea to increase membership.

The M+G+R Foundation Comments:
comments after next post below.
......as early as the seventh century, there existed a serious controversy
concerning the matter of Icons within Catholicism?
This controversy created a challenging problem for the Church, for within the Church, there were
two different groups with two different attitudes towards Icons.
The first group of Christians felt that it was improper to use Icons in the Church. They reasoned
that since Jesus Christ was Divine, He could not and should not be portrayed by an earthly image.
They also were convinced that the depiction and veneration of an Image of Christ amounted to
nothing more than idolatry and superstition.
They argued that the faithful would look to the Icon as an idol, and worship it rather than God
Himself. They were sure that Icons would lead people into pagan practices and away from communion
with Christ Himself. These people were known as Iconoclasts, which means 'Icon-breakers,' and with
fiery zeal, they proceeded to fight against the presence of Icons in the Church and to rid
the Church of all Images.

Comments: The fears of those who were not
in favor of Holy Icons became true "with a vengeance".
It is extremely rare for someone who practices
the Catholic Faith no to practice idolatry to a great extent - with the Mediterranean countries
leading the list.
We have witnessed it everywhere. (2) It
would not be so unsettling except that we see the idolaters run to kiss, touch, lick or whatever
they do to the object of their idolatry (3)
– while Jesus Christ, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament, is essentially ignored or
"honored" with a casual and quick nod.
The same goes with relics - even those who are allegedly of Jesus. What is more important, Jesus
in the flesh in a Tabernacle, or a piece of something that touched Him when He walked amongst men?
As those familiar with Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament should remember, one of the prayers
offered at that time could be any clearer about this fundamental truth of the Catholic Faith:
Lord Jesus Christ, I believe You are as truly present in this
Holy Sacrament, under the sign of bread, as You were when dying upon a cross for the salvation of
all mankind, or as You are now enthroned in Glory in Heaven at the Right Hand of the
People will go halfway across the world to visit the Shroud of Turin and will seldom spend one
hour - thirty minutes! - in prayerful meditation before a Tabernacle.
Idolatry is one of the practices the Second Vatican Council
tried to control; the amount of statues and/or
icons in churches were supposed to be limited to precious few; typically the Patron/Patroness of
the church, the Virgin Mary and, of course, a Crucifix.
How do you know in which category you fall? That is quite simple....
(a) If you are "locked in to" any particular icon, image or statue - the idolatry component of
that behavior is very high.
(b) If you like to have an icon, image or statue of, say, St. Barbara but the preference to which
one is strictly based on artistic rendition - the
idolatry component of that behavior is very low.
(c) If you must touch a relic for a cure,
remember, and learn, from what Jesus
said to a woman just healed by
Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go thy way in
peace. [Luke 8:48]
He did not say: Daughter, the touching of the hem of my garment
has cured you, did He? We repeat - Faith is a key component to our inter-active
relationship with God. Even if one touched Jesus but had little faith, precious little would
happen. Let us not forget that.....
....Jesus said to them: A prophet is not without honor, but in
his own country, and in his own house, and among his own kindred.
And he could not do any miracles there, only that
he cured a few that were sick, laying his hands upon them.

I have a question for you.
When the anarchy is upon us and the most evil of evils reigns on earth, is it better to:
(a) not fight back and let whatever is done to you, be done to you as you profess Christ as your
(b) if you have a truckload of fighting supplies, should you take out as many evil people you can
before they get to you, even though you profess your belief in Christ as your Savior?
Are we to fight back or turn the other cheek?
A. The most simple and direct answer would be
the same answer given to the following questions:
(a) How did the twelve Apostles react to the persecutions they faced, the abuses they
were subjected to and to their violent deaths (with the exception of John the Evangelist who died
peacefully in Ephesus)?
(b) How did the persecuted and martyred Christians, up to the time Christianity went
Imperial, (1) handle their
Remember - Christianity had become such a force in the entire Roman Empire that it
became the adhesive Constantine utilized to cement his crumbling Empire. Then, we should ask the
(c) Who was really stronger - the Christians who lived the teachings of Jesus Christ -
specifically the Beatitudes (2) - or the
sword and spike bearing Romans?
It was when Christianity went Imperial and
abandoned its founder and His teachings that the "slaughter in the Name of Christ" started
- best exemplified by The "Holy" Crusades.
This does not mean that one should seek martyrdom. It should be avoided as long as Divine Laws are
respected which, of course, are best exemplified by all the teachings of Jesus Christ.
We will conclude with a quote from the Book of Revelations, Chapter 13:
10 “If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity
they will go. If anyone is to be killed with the sword, with the sword they will be
And from Jeremiah, Chapter 15:

them, ‘This is what the LORD says: “‘Those destined for death, to death; those for the
sword, to the sword; those for starvation, to starvation; those for captivity, to captivity.’
