“make America a socialist country?”

"make America a socialist country?" by Dick Roberts

"A New Zealander who has studied the radical LEFT for some 30 years, says he is watching an escalating number of radicals foment hate, violence and chaos by any means necessary to destroy the American constitutional way of life. These “ain’t college students; they’re professionals.” He hopes more Americans are connecting the dots and paying attention.

Trevor Loudon, the author of “.” The film is about who was behind the inaugural protests against President Donald Trump. They found organizations and professionals like Teresa Gutierrez of the Workers World Party, who proclaims in the film, “this is the revolution that will take Donald Trump down and make America a socialist country.”

Music to his ears, Loudon commented on a poll by John McLaughlin in February for Secure America Now, showing growing bipartisan weariness with the manufactured outrage by the left.

Did you notice the cultural pressures against any criticism of President Barack Obama as the first black president advanced a progressive agenda to fundamentally transform the nation? On the other hand no criticism of Trump is off limits in the LEFT’s orthodoxy that treats this president wholly different than the last one. Impeachment, violence, boycotts, mental instability and slurs are leveled against Trump without any apparent awareness of a double standard — a double standard apparent to the Trump voters – and one that smacks of mental illness.

Charges do not have to be true. Anything that helps discredit President Trump in the eyes of the public, weaken him, or delegitimize him is seen by the LEFT as okay. You might recall Lenin ‘s quote : “we must vilify and incite hatred against those with which we disagree.” (Marxist – Leninism 101)

For more on Trevor Loudon, see his documentary, “The Enemies Within” that lay out the Members of Congress who couldn’t pass a security clearance based on their ties to neo-communists and the Muslim Brotherhood, the documentary created by Capital Research Center. You can also browse a resource he created on the hard left.

Truth be told, I write for those closest to my hear

Truth be told, I write for those closest to my heart, who, truth be told, are probably the least likely to read it. So, in truth, I write for the stranger who happens this way, and so enters my heart to become family and friend.❤️

Of Myself and of Thee

Of Myself and of Thee

I know so little of myself.
I perceive myself to be
Only because
You think of me.

I spin about like elemental sprites,
Really nothing without You,
Yet dancing as the orbs
Upon the stage
Of Time and Space.

I know so little of my heart,
How it can beat and bow,
And even break.
That I am free to move,
In opposition to Your dreams for me.

You are the spirit and stuff
Of my many moments,
The thought I hold dear,
And the music I hear.

I know so little of myself,
But You speak me and here I be,
Living and dreaming,
Praying and waiting,
To see all You have thought of me.

Rome Sweet Home

Song of My Heart

Song of My Heart

I sing my song of love to Thee,
My God, in Persons, Holy Three,
My Three, as You desire to be,
Have come to earth to succor me.

I, who pine, wanting Thee to please,
Lift heart and hands upon my knees,
Hoping, True God, for Thee to live,
For Your Heart beats but to forgive.

Abba Waits

Abba waits.

While I wandered,
Wandered far,
Abba waits.

Winding roads and forests,
Miles and mountains,
Abba waits.

Husks and devolution,
Drunken prostitution,
All the while, Abba waits.

Humbled in revelation,
Plans of feeble protestation,
Still Abba waits.

Homeward, humbled,
Bowed and broken,
Eyes to the horizon, Abba waits

Heart aflame,
Running, embracing, gifting a son,
For from eternity, Abba waits.

I was Irish once…

I was Irish once…

I was Irish for brief moments,
As they danced on makeshift stage.
Three sisters donned in green and white,
With ribbons in curled hair.

I was Irish for brief moments,
As locks bounced to rhythms tapped,
By jigging, flying feet,
Flitting blithely through the air.

I was Irish for brief moments,
Of merriment sublime,
Happy, joyful leaping,
Knees high, and lifted, kicking.

I was Irish for brief moments
Minstrels played their magic tunes,
And young girls moved in rocking fashion
Erin’s reveries impassioned.

I was Irish for brief moments.
Sweetly skirted colleens,
Poised on pointed toes.
Sent hearts a-skipping, happy legs a-lifting,

I was Irish for brief moments,
As fairies with green ribbons
In coiffed and flaming hair,
Spun a golden space in memory’s place.

I was Irish for brief moments,
And see again in dreaming,
Gladsome spinning, hopping, prancing,
Three sisters on stage dancing.

Yes, I was Irish once.

Stumbling Into God’s Mercy

Lifting the Veil

Lifting the Veil

Lift the veil in this morass of Sin,
That faith may blossom and hope enter in.
Let the Sun of Justice shine
Upon a people in decline,
That looking up from the tyranny of power and things
Your face may captivate and solace bring.

Pour down torrents of Thy Grace
To cleanse this dry and brutal place ,
Uproot to plant anew
A Day of peace like settled dew,
That minds be bright and intellects sublime
And our only glory may be Thine.

Daily Prayers: During the Day

Daily Prayers: During the Day

WHEN THE CLOCK STRIKES

O MOST sweet Jesus; I commend to Thy Divine Heart all that I have done in the hour that is gone; to be cleansed and purified, and offered to God the Father for His eternal praise. And whatsoever I shall do in the hour that is beginning; I resolve to do simply and purely for the glory of God and for the salvation of all mankind; in union with Thy Passion. Amen.

PRAYER BEFORE WORK

Our Lord directed St. Gertrude to tell a certain person to form the following intention before beginning any work:

O LORD Jesus; in union with Thy most perfect actions I commend to Thee this my work; to be directed according to Thine adorable will; for the salvation of all mankind. Amen.

AFTER WORK

O LORD Jesus; in union with Thy most perfect actions I offer Thee this my work; to be amended and cleansed; and presented as is fit to God the Father; to His eternal praise. Amen.

BEFORE EATING

Our Lord said to St. Gertrude: He who takes care to eat and drink; etc.; with the intention expressed in the following prayer; holds as it were a buckler before Me; to defend Me from the insults and injuries of the worldly.

O LORD Jesus, I take this food in that same love wherewith Thou hast sanctified it, when in Thy most holy Humanity Thou didst deign to eat and to drink to the glory of God the Father, and for the salvation of all the whole human race; beseeching Thee that, in union with Thy Divine love, it may tend to the increase of glory, and salvation of all Thine elect in Heaven, on earth, or in Purgatory.

WHILE TAKING SUSTENANCE

St. Gertrude was accustomed to say frequently while eating:

MAY the virtue of Thy Divine love incorporate me wholly into Thee, O my most loving Jesus!

And while drinking:

O MOST loving Jesus, pour into my heart and preserve within me the energy of Thine Own most glowing charity; may it pervade all my substance, and flow ever more through every faculty of my body and soul, to Thine eternal praise and glory. Amen.

She asked our Lord whether He would accept a like devotion from all who might offer it to Him, and received this reply: Whenever anyone eats or drinks with this intention and devotion, I will acknowledge in presence of My Father that I have eaten with Him, and that he has given Me to drink, and I will show to him in due time the utmost tenderness of My love.

AFTER FALLING INTO SIN

St. Gertrude said to our Lord: Teach me, O best of Teachers, how to efface the stains of sin which I contract from time to time. She received this answer: Never allow these stains to remain upon thy conscience; but as soon as thou feelest thyself defiled by any fault, say to Me with a devout heart:

O CHRIST Jesus, my only Salvation and Hope, grant that all my transgressions may be blotted out by Thine most efficacious death. Amen.
