Did You Know That....?

December 2009

PURPOSE: The purpose of Did You Know That...? is to share pertinent-to-these-times information with our readership in a fast and efficient manner while minimizing e-mailing

...it was due to an over abundance of intelligence information, which we were not capable of processing adequately, that a terrorist attack was almost successful? (1)

Mr. Obama alluded to criticisms, widely made by the Sept. 11 commission and others in the wake of the 2001 terrorist attacks, that the myriad U.S. security, intelligence and counterintelligence agencies were unable to connect the dots and possibly prevent the attack.

"It's becoming clear that the system that has been in place for years now is not sufficiently up to date to take full advantage of the information we collect and the knowledge we have," the president said. "Had this critical information been shared, it could have been compiled with other intelligence ... triggered red flags, and the suspect would have never been allowed to board that plane for America."


The M+G+R Foundation Comments:
History repeats itself again, and again and again..... In this same forum, on Dcember 7th, we published:

Did you know that........the following were the capital errors 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 north].

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 the open.

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) and were assumed to be a group of (only) twelve (!)B-17 that were being 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 General Short.

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".


Our commenst then were: First - The amount of intelligence data now collected via satellites, computers and mobile phones is overwhelming, yet, ultimately it is up to a human to issue the order to act upon a "red flag". Therefore, the more data is collected the greater the probability of missing the window of opportunity to act before its too late.

Second - Are we, in and out of the government and of the Armed Forces, in better shape than we were in 1941? No! Complacency and self deification has eroded the edge given to us by High Tech. Just think of how our mental agility for basic arithmetic operations has declined after the proliferation of inexpensive hand held calculators.

...President Obama just signed an executive order (1) allowing INTERPOL's (2) central operations office in the United States within our own Justice Department offices?

They are American law enforcement officers working under the aegis of INTERPOL within the US Justice Department.

Interpol works closely with international tribunals such as the International Criminal Court. It also works closely with foreign courts and law enforcement authorities such as those in Europe that are investigating former Bush administration officials for purported war crimes.

Why would we elevate an international police force above American law? Why would we immunize an international police force from the limitations that constrain the FBI and other American law enforcement agencies? Why is it suddenly necessary to have, within the Justice Department, a repository for stashing government files which, therefore, will be beyond the ability of Congress, American law enforcement, the media, and the American people to scrutinize?

The M+G+R Foundation Comments: The answer to so many of those questions is simply: Because the time is ripe.

...Rabbi Leib Tropper, key proponent of the successful campaign for stricter conversions in Israel and around the world, has resigned from a senior post as a result of a sexual scandal? (1)

Rabbi Leib Tropper, a founder of the hard-line conversion group Eternal Jewish Family (EJF), announced that he had stepped down as its leader when allegations surfaced in news outlets that he had engaged in sexual misconduct with a woman while guiding her conversion. Tropper was among those responsible for major policy changes by the Israeli rabbinate that sparked a worldwide tightening of conversion regulations.

In a statement issued December 23 to the Forward, Tropper’s representatives said he “wishes to express his regret for the turmoil caused by his departure… and for what has appeared to be conduct not within our significant laws of modesty.”

The M+G+R Foundation Comments: Just a reminder that duplicity and wanton hypocrisy is not an exclusive trait of Christian leaders.

....during the 17th century, the Papal choir regularly employed castrati - male singers castrated at puberty to retain their alto and soprano voices? (1)

As the popularity of castrati rose in the 18th century, many left the Papal choir in favor of the operatic stage; then, the Papal choir entered a period of decline.


The M+G+R Foundation Comments:
The question is - Who decided upon the execution of such act of brutality? Obviously a child at puberty - even in those days - did not have the wisdom to make such horrific decision. We are sure the Vatican invoked Matthew 19:12 to exhort them.

...the Hancock group (1) seem to be shifting their stance regarding the Maya and what is to come soon?

We have received an announcement for a conference in Yucatan on January 2010 which contain statements which are "music to our ears".

For example:

(a) Myths from all around the world speak of a golden age of humanity brought to an abrupt end by our own arrogance, greed and overweening lust for power. The Atlantis story is not alone in this respect but one of hundreds of similar “myths” that testify to a great forgotten episode in human prehistory – a civilisation with advanced technological accomplishments that severed its connections to its own spiritual roots and thus “angered the gods”, “lost the mandate of heaven” and was destroyed.

Destroyed so completely, Plato says, that the survivors had to begin again like children with almost no memory of what went before.

(b) Is ours the next lost civilisation? Will what we have built and created with our global scientific culture be swept away, lost beneath the sea or ground to dust and scattered by the winds?....  Will we be looked back on as a people who lived through a golden age and squandered it utterly?

In mythical terms, it has to be said, such an outcome looks chillingly likely.

(c) Perhaps this was why the ancient Maya, keepers of a calendar of unknown origin and surpassing technological complexity, chose to transmit a warning to us?

(d) And perhaps it is not too late. For if the Maya were able to peer into the future then they will have also seen that nothing is inevitable, that the power of choice remains with us – each one of us as individuals, each society, each alliance of nations and ultimately the whole of mankind.

Although in some of the other parts of the announcement we find December 21, 2012, as "the date" (2) as well as some New Age (3) and New World Order (4) vernacular, our key messages are extremely well covered, and for that we thank God.

Relating to the letters [(a), (b), (c) and (d)] used above....

 (a) The fundamentals of the Real Time Line of Creation published. (5)

(b) Where we are right now as a "civilization".

(c) The Maya were not the authors of the calendar but were the keepers of a calendar of unknown origin and surpassing technological complexity - coherent with the published Real Time Line of Creation. (5)

(d) The extent of the disasters at our door still is in our hands (6)

The fundamental items promoted are: Do not despair, the world is not going to end; what will take place is a newer version of the Noah's Flood type of cataclysm, and we can still do something to "break the fall" - and all of that is good.

.....a glimpse of the Virgin Mary brings hope to Christians in Egypt? (1)

Every night in the run-up to Christmas thousands of Egypt's Coptic Christians have been gathering in a Cairo suburb eager for a glimpse of a vision that has given hope to their marginalised community.

It is three hours past midnight in Al-Warrak, a poor working class neighbourhood of the Egyptian capital, and a 10,000-strong crowd is silently staring at the sky.

Thousands have been coming nightly since the first sighting of the Virgin Mary on December 10, in the hope of being blessed by her light.

"The first person to spot the sighting of the Virgin Mary was a Muslim neighour. He took a video and pictures and distributed them to everyone," said Father Fishay, a priest at the Warrak church, describing how he first heard of the apparition.

Hassan, the Muslim neighbour, was sitting at his local coffee shop when at around 8:30 pm, he saw a strong light coming from the church.

Others on the street began to notice the light and saw a bird circling above the church. At around 2 am, a vision of the Virgin Mary in her white and blue robes appeared, Fishay said.

The M+G+R Foundation Comments:
A lovely Christmas gift for our Egyptian brethren - Christians and Muslims alike. Let us not forget the importance the Muslim Holy Book - the Qur'an - gives to Mary. (2)

...Lu, a very small town in Italy - just 60 miles east of Turin - has the greatest per capita vocation of any town or city in the world?

From the tiny village of Lu came 323 vocations: 152 priests (diocesan and religious) and 171 nuns belonging to 41 different congregations.

Why? The mothers of the village resorted to what most Christians talk about and seldom do: Steady prayer and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament with increased vocations as their intention. (1)

The M+G+R Foundation Comments: Do we have to?.... Considering that we are virtually hoarse from exhorting one and all to steady prayer, day in and day out.

......an Anglican priest outraged police for telling his congregation: 'My advice to poor is to shoplift'? (1)

Poor people who are desperate for cash have been advised to go forth and shoplift from major stores - by an Anglican priest.

The Rev Tim Jones said in his Sunday sermon that stealing from successful shops was preferable to burglary, robbery or prostitution.

He told parishioners it would not break the eighth commandment 'thou shalt not steal' because it 'is permissible for those who are in desperate situations to take food that they might not starve'.

But his advice was roundly condemned by police and the local Tory MP. Father Jones, 42, was discussing Mary and the birth of Jesus when he went on to the subject of how poor and vulnerable people cope in the run-up to Christmas.

'My advice, as a Christian priest, is to shoplift,' he told his stunned congregation at St Lawrence and St Hilda in York.


The M+G+R Foundation Comments:
miguel de Portugal is neither surprised nor shocked. Allow us to explain...

When the man who was later anointed miguel de Portugal was considering the "assembly line priesthood", one of the steps in the process was an in depth psychological interview and extensive written test. The interview by the psychologist who handled the testing for the Diocese in question went extremely well. Then, the written test.

When he came back for the written test results the psychologist was outraged. The problem? Allow us to explain....

 The answer given by him to the following (paraphrased) question....

A man's wife is very ill and is dying. The local pharmacist would not give the man the only medication that would make a the wife well. The man could not afford to purchase it. What would you do/recommend?

....was....

 "The husband should pray to God so that He would move the pharmacist to charity and give the medication either free or on credit."

The answer, the future m de P was told, given by all priests was:

 "Break in, steal the medication and then pray for forgiveness."

The future m de P was then referred to a priest psychologist who handled "problem cases" who, after interviewing him referred him back to the original psychologist.

Her (paraphrased) words - as she dismissed the future m de P - were: "They are desperate for priests so they will take you anyway."

It may also be of interest to mention that - in all interviews with priests and lay professionals associated with this process- not a word or question was ever addressed to the applicant's sexuality: concepts, ideas, morals, potential or actual inclinations, past experiences, etc. etc. 

Then again - not long afterwards - the same religious order's Catholic High School Principal (who was a priest) was busted, in union with a few out of town friends, by the vice squad  in a homosexual "book store" not far from where the High School was located. He did not even have the presence of mind to go elsewhere.

Needless  to say - the "assembly line priesthood" idea was jettisoned. The "god" they believed in had nothing to do with the Real and Living God the future m de P already knew well.

...two more Irish Catholic bishops have resigned in response to a report which criticised how they handled allegations of abuse by clergy? (1)

Eamonn Walsh and Raymond Field issued a joint statement which was read out at midnight Mass.

The pair, who were both auxiliary bishops of Dublin, said they hoped their resignations would help bring peace to the victims of sexual abuse.

Four out of five bishops criticised in the Murphy report have now resigned.

The M+G+R Foundation Comments: At least they resigned. Cardinal Law (2) was rewarded with the most important Basilica dedicated to the Immaculate One and Archbishop-turned-Cardinal Levada (3) was made the "Guardian of the Faith". How can we expect anyone to take these jokers, as a group, seriously. They must be evaluated on a case by case basis to determine if they are worthy of their position, thus, worthy as a spiritual leader.

In said genealogy it is established that Joseph is a direct descendant of King David which is of no physical account at all when it comes to establish the Davidic lineage of Jesus Christ.

The physical lineage could only come through Mary - the only human involved in the birth of our Saviour. However, we are witnessing here again the use of symbolism by God in the fulfillment of prophecies.

....archaeologists have unveiled what may have been the home of one of Jesus' childhood neighbors? (1)

The humble dwelling is the first dating to the era of Jesus to be discovered in Nazareth, then a hamlet of around 50 impoverished Jewish families where Jesus spent his boyhood.

Archaeologists and present-day residents of Nazareth imagined Jesus as a youngster, playing with other children in the isolated village, not far from the spot where the Archangel Gabriel revealed to Mary that she would give birth to the boy.

Based on clay and chalk shards found at the site, the dwelling appeared to house a "simple Jewish family," Alexandre added, as workers carefully chipped away at mud with small pickaxes to reveal stone walls.

"This may well have been a place that Jesus and his contemporaries were familiar with," Alexandre said. A young Jesus may have played around the house with his cousins and friends. "It's a logical suggestion."

....Benedict has declared his predecessors Popes Pius XII and John Paul II as “venerable”? (1)

The beatification process of Pius XII, who was Pope during the Second World War, has been a source of tension with some Jewish groups, the BBC reports.

He is accused of not having done enough to save Jews from the Holocaust, and Jewish leaders have previously asked Benedict to freeze the process that could lead to eventual sainthood for Pius, until more Second World War archives could be studied.

The M+G+R Foundation Comments: Tragically Pius XII gets the blame for not helping the Jews more during World War II, when the truth of the matter is that Pius XI is solely responsible for all of World War II and all the ensuing misery by disobeying the crystal clear instructions from God through His Most Holy Mother manifested as Our Lady of the Holy Rosary of Fatima. (2)

We have no doubt that if Heaven had instructed the Pope to tax all Catholics 10 % of their net worth or be summarily excommunicated, the Vatican would have implemented the request even before Mary concluded the apparition in question!

....the Vatican declares unique copyright on Papal figure? (1)

The Vatican made a declaration on the protection of the figure of the Pope on Saturday morning.  The statement seeks to establish and safeguard the name, image and any symbols of the Pope as being expressly for official use of the Holy See unless otherwise authorized.

The statement cited a "great increase of affection and esteem for the person of the Holy Father" in recent years as contributing to a desire to use the Pontiff's name for all manner of educational and cultural institutions, civic groups and foundations.
...

The declaration alludes to attempts to use ecclesiastical or pontifical symbols and logos to "attribute credibility and authority to initiatives" as another reason to establish their “copyright” on the Holy Father's name, picture and coat of arms.

"Consequently, the use of anything referring directly to the person or office of the Supreme Pontiff... and/or the use of the title 'Pontifical,' must receive previous and express authorization from the Holy See," concluded the message released to the press.


The M+G+R Foundation Comments:
If applied properly - not fanatically - this may not be a bad idea, even though it matters little at this time.

....an Israeli organization that is handing out cash to soldiers for disobeying orders has been collecting tax-exempt donations from American donors in apparent disregard of United States tax law? (1)

The far right-wing group SOS-Israel and its leader, Shalom Dov Wolpe, a rabbi associated with the messianic wing of Chabad-Lubavitch, were in the news in November for rewarding each of the two Israeli recruits 1,000 shekels per day for the 20 days they spent in a military prison. The two had disrupted their induction ceremony at the Western Wall when they raised a banner that read, “Don’t Evacuate Homesh,”...

Wolpe presented the money to the two soldiers in an elaborate ceremony that took place at Jerusalem’s Finjan restaurant.... Though the source of these particular funds is unclear, what is not in dispute — by even Wolpe himself — is that he has been misrepresenting the nature of his organization to the Internal Revenue Service, claiming that it is a religious institution when it is little more than a post office box, a ruse that allows him to maintain tax-exempt status.

......as early as the seventh century, there existed a serious controversy concerning the matter of Icons within Catholicism? (1)

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.


The M+G+R Foundation 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 witness it everywhere. (2) It would not be so unsettling except witnessing that as the idolaters adore their idols, Jesus Christ, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament is essentially ignored or "honored" with a casual and quick nod while the "Faithful" runs to kiss, touch, lick or whatever they do to the object of their idolatry (3).

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 not spell out the fundament of the Catholic Faith any clearer:

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 Father.

You said that... etc.

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 (4) 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....

If you are "locked in to" any particular icon, image or statue - the idolatry component of that behavior is very high.
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.
If you must touch a relic for a cure.... remember, and learn, from what Jesus said:

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. [Mark 6:4-5]

....Benedict XVI has done everything except raising Galileo to the altars in the last International Congress at the Pontifial Lateran Univesity? (1)

The same Galileo who was supressed by the "Holy" Inquisition. Let us read some of Benedict's gems....
[our highlights]

I am pleased to address my greeting to all the participants in the International Congress on the theme: "From Galileo's telescope to evolutionary cosmology. Science, philosophy and theology in dialogue".
.....

The scientist was able to observe with his own eyes what, until that moment, had been no more than controversial hypotheses. It would not be wrong to presume that at this sight Galileo's profoundly believing mind must have been opened, as it were quite naturally, to prayerful praise, making his own the feelings expressed by the Psalmist: "O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!...

With this discovery, the cultural awareness of facing a crucial point in the history of humanity increased. Science was becoming something different from what the ancients had always thought it to be.

...

Galileo then showed in practice how to approach and observe the phenomena themselves in order to understand their secret causes. The method of deduction gave way to that of induction and prepared the ground for experimentation.

.....

There is no conflict on the horizon between the various branches of scientific knowledge and of philosophy and theology. On the contrary, only to the extent that they succeed in entering into dialogue and in exchanging their respective competencies will they be able to present truly effective results to people today.

Galileo's discovery was a crucial landmark in the history of humanity.

It led to other great discoveries, with the invention of instruments that have made the technological progress achieved precious.

From the satellites that observe the various phases of the universe which has paradoxically become smaller to the highly sophisticated machines used by biomedical engineering, everything shows the greatness of the human mind which, according to the biblical commandment, is called to "subdue" the whole of creation


miguel de Portugal Comments: There is no doubt that "Galileo's discovery was a crucial landmark in the history of humanity." since it showed the Wizard of Oz techniques used by the Roman Catholic Church Administration to "bamboozle" the Faithful instead of Evangelizing them as Jesus intended the Church He founded upon the Rock of Christ (2) to do.

If I did not know - not believe, but know - that the Catholic Faith is the Faith which contains the most revealed Divine Truths (3) and it is, when practiced appropriately, the best and most secure way for man to connect with God, the Roman Catholic Church Administrators (4) would have driven me away for the Faith. As it turns out - they are the ones who are being shown the door. (5)

We once again echo what Jesus said of the Temple Masters of His time - which is as applicable as it is today: Do as they say but not as they do.  (6) (7)

....the Vatican defrocks African archbishop Milingo for defiance? (1)

The Zambian monsignor has long been a problem for Rome. He angered the Vatican when he was married in 2001 to a South Korean woman by the Rev. Sun Myung Moon of the Unification Church.

He was excommunicated in 2006 after installing four married men as bishops in defiance of the Roman Catholic Church requirement that its clergy be celibate.

The Vatican moved Thursday to thwart renegade African Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo from ordaining more bishops in defiance of the pope, stripping him of his priestly functions so any future ordinations by him would be invalid.

The M+G+R Foundation Comments: One cannot accuse the Vatican of impatience when it comes to Milingo. Unfortunately, this show of institutional charity "flies in the face" of some of the most fundamental teachings and severe warnings of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Woe to the world because of scandals. For it must needs be that scandals come: but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh. [Matthew 18:7]

Archbishop Milingo's behavior has been a scandal (harming the Faith of the innocent, child like, trusting members of the Catholic Church) since 2001 and Rome's ambiguity has prolonged the scandal for nearly eight years.

Regarding the "stripping of priestly functions" - in this case and any other case.... If God would not take away the faculties granted to Lucifer and the angels that followed him, we do not believe that once the priestly faculties are granted (by God through a human) they can be taken away. It seems that the Vatican wants to upstage God again.

Of course, it is within the power (and duty) of the church Administration to forbid Milingo to act on its behalf and make such ban publicly known. The consequences to Milingo of misusing said faculties are strictly between Milingo and God.

The closest parallel we can draw to this situation is when someone goes to communion in defiance to the conditions set forth for such Sacrament: The communicant is voluntarily sealing its own condemnation (unless, of course, he/she acknowledges the sin before body and soul separation, aka "death").

....when we stated that "...meditated Rosaries prayed while watching any of the movies based on the Gospel texts - with the sound turned off - is so spiritually and emotionally powerful that it must not be overdone." we meant it literally? (1)

We strongly suggest that anyone who may wish to try this style of prayer limits him/her self to five decades at a time. Like with prescription medication - each individual reacts in a different physical and/or psyco-emotional manner. It is possible to have a psyco-emotional "overdose"  by praying more than five decades at a time using this technique.

...thousands of residents living near the slopes of the Philippines's most active volcano have been ordered to evacuate as officials warned it could be on the brink of a major eruption?  (1)

Mount Mayon in the central Philippines began spewing rivers of lava and plumes of ash on Monday.

Officials say a major eruption could occur in the coming days. The evacuation order came after state volcanologists raised the alert level on the 2,460-meter high volcano to two levels below eruption.

Joey Salceda, governor of Albay province, told reporters nearly 50,000 people live in an eight-kilometre radius around Mayon considered the area most at risk in case of an eruption.

....a United States government contract worker, who was distributing cellphones, laptops and other communications equipment in Cuba on behalf of the Obama administration, has been detained by the authorities? (1)

[our highlighting]

The officials said the contractor, who works for a company based in the Washington suburbs, was detained Dec. 5. They said the United States Interests Section in Havana was awaiting Cuba’s response to a request for consular access to the man, who was not identified.

The detainee, officials said, was employed by Development Alternatives Inc., which had at least $391,000 in government contracts last year. Based in Bethesda, Md., the company is a kind of do-it-all development company that provides services to the United States government in countries around the world.

Cellphones and computers are available for sale in Cuba, prompting some to question why Cuba decided to crack down on an activity that has long been treated as more of an annoyance than a crime. When it comes to satellite phones, however, the Cubans have taken a far harder line.

The M+G+R Foundation Comments: If you are familiar with the contents of our latest document on US-Cuban affairs (2) it will be quite obvious that the gentleman in question was not working on behalf of the Girl Scouts....

When will we learn? Obviously (2).... never!

...now computer virus not only infects your computer but it can also infect your reputation quite effectively? (1)

Malicious programs are rampaging through Web sites like Facebook and Twitter, spreading themselves by taking over people’s accounts and sending out messages to all of their friends and followers

The humiliation sown by these attacks is just collateral damage. In most cases, the perpetrators are hoping to profit from the referral fees they get for directing people to sketchy e-commerce sites. In other words, even the crooks are on social networks now — because millions of tightly connected potential victims are just waiting for them there.

Often the victims lose control of their accounts after clicking on a link “sent” by a friend. In other cases, the bad guys apparently scan for accounts with easily guessable passwords.

The M+G+R Foundation Comments: The reader may ponder as to why we touch on these subjects so often and not stay within faith related matters.

The answer - although not obvious - is simple: The greatest threat the Faithful faces today is to fall for the deception of the staged Second Coming of Christ. We must ensure that the Faithful understands the deception forces which are at work in all areas. It is like providing a vaccination - immunity, if you will - so that as many as possible do not fall for the greatest deception of all.

The warning about this torrent of deceptions was given by John the Evangelist: And the serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman, water as it were a river; that he might cause her to be carried away by the river. [Rev. 12:15]

....the Joey Lomangino's Garabandal group seems to be quite close to the Opus Dei operated EWTN? (1)

[our highlighting]


Garabandal is in the air and the Message is spreading. Daily we hear from promoters, clergy and laity, around the world who speak with great enthusiasm about the tremendous gains they are seeing. We can see their effect in the constant stream of requests for information and materials from those only now learning of the apparitions.

In a new iniative, we have partnered with promoters in foreign countries supplying them with foreign language master copies of the Message of Garabandal DVD for local promotion. As a result of these efforts we have seen a surge of interest from new places, most prominently from China. EWTN Europe began broadcasting this year and we have provided our contacts there with master copies in all the languages of Europe.

.....an independent opinion offered by EWTN’s expert theologian Colin B. Donovan, STL, not only lauds Garabandal but also Medjugorje?  (2)


The M+G+R Foundation Comments: When an Opus Dei penetrated group "throws itself" into Marian Apocalyptic Messages - even controversial ones like Medjugorje - it brings to mind what we alerted the clergy and the Faithful about thirteen years ago (3).

This "loving embrace" with Marian Apocalyptic Messages by Benedict XVI people becomes more intriguing when we look back to what the then Cardinal Ratzinger said about such messages. (4)

....the best meditated Rosaries that we have ever prayed have been done while watching any of the movies based on the Gospel texts but with the sound turned off?

One can literally start praying a Rosary at the beginning of the movie and continue praying Rosaries all the way until the end. We presume that the only better way would be praying it while having a Heavenly apparition like the girls at Garabandal (1) did.

It is so spiritually and emotionally powerful that it must not be overdone.

...the New Mexico Attorney General's Office is warning about fake H1N1 vaccination emails that are circulating across the country? (1)

The Centers for Disease Control confirms that the e-mail is bogus.

The phony message begins with a notice of a "State Vaccination H1N1 Program." The e-mail then states you need to make a vaccination profile on the CDC's Web site and provides a link.

The AG's office warns that clicking on the link can infect your computer with viruses and malicious software.


The M+G+R Foundation Comments: This is not the only technique used to trick individuals into clicking on a malicious link. We are receiving many of those from a variety of sources, so well crafted that most individuals would click on the offered link. Even seemingly harmless youtube videos billed as very important information on current events.

The Internet is getting more dangerous every day, thus we recommend that state-of-the-art security systems be utilized. Malicious viruses are perhaps the least of the problems - the real problem is the stealing critical personal data from one's hard disk without being aware of it.... until it is too late.

....the French are - under the guise of a cultural event - restoring the alleged importance of buttocks (Yes, you read that right!) have had since time inmemorial in art and, yes, in sex? (1)

From the country that gave the world Brigitte Bardot and topless sunbathing comes a fresh expose of the human anatomy: man's enduring fascination with bottoms.

Large or small, pert or flabby, we've all got them, yet, since the dawn of time, buttocks have been seen variously as a source of inspiration and erotic desire, a taboo and a mocking V-sign at authority.


The M+G+R Foundation Comments: It was just yesterday when we wrote: All manner of insanity is possible and every day the magnitude of the "What next?" will greatly surpass the day's before until God finally says Enough!

Where did we find out about this? No, it was not in some shady publication; it was in France24, the international French TV station, which broadcasts worldwide in French, English and Arabic. They highlighted it somehere before or after the twice an hour ten minute news spot.

Besides reminding the reader of our documented warning (2) associated with that part of the human anatomy we have nothing else to add.

...the reception of the Nobel Peace Prize by President Obama was marked by an extraordinary and mysterious-for-a-while light show in the Norwegian night sky? (1)
[our highlights]

A mysterious blue spiral visible from Norway that had UFO watchers frothing for a few hours today turns out to be the  fallout from a failed Russian test of a  submarine-based intercontinental missile.

The Russian defense ministry says the Bulava missile was launched from a submerged submarine in the White Sea. It failed in its third stage,  Reuters and the Associated Press report.

The failure came in the 13th test of the problem-plagued missile, according to Russia's leading economic dailies Vedomosti and Kommersant.


The M+G+R Foundation Comments:
Another handwriting on the wall that does not require Daniel's interpretation if we consider.... (2)

From the former Alaska governor, Sarah Palin, to some of the leading commentators of the centre left, the US President Barack Obama's Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech in Oslo has drawn praise for a pragmatic yet complex analysis of what constitutes a ''just war''.

As he accepted the Nobel Peace Prize on Thursday, the President defended the necessity of some wars and made a case for just wars, even as he called for concerted attempts to win the peace around the world.

''Make no mistake: evil does exist in the world,'' Mr Obama said. ''A non-violent movement could not have halted Hitler's armies. Negotiations cannot convince al-Qaeda's leaders to lay down their arms.''

...since man defined justice - as opposed to Divine Justice - is subject to interpretation (relativism) and it is no secret that the Russian and PRC versions of justice are just not quite the version that the West embraces.

....the idea of a planetary law, such as China's one-child policy, is being "floated" as the only way to reverse the disastrous global birthrate currently at one million births every four days? (1)

The "inconvenient truth" overhanging the UN's Copenhagen conference is not that the climate is warming or cooling, but that humans are overpopulating the world.

Ironically, China, despite its dirty coal plants, is the world's leader in terms of fashioning policy to combat environmental degradation, thanks to its one-child-only edict.

China has proven that birth restriction is smart policy. Its middle class grows, all its citizens have housing, health care, education and food, and the one out of five human beings who live there are not overpopulating the planet.

and then a Chinese official in Copenhagen brings it up (2) two days later.....

Population and climate change are intertwined but the population issue has remained a blind spot when countries discuss ways to mitigate climate change and slow down global warming, according to Zhao Baige, vice-minister of National Population and Family Planning Commission of China (NPFPC) .

"Dealing with climate change is not simply an issue of CO2 emission reduction but a comprehensive challenge involving political, economic, social, cultural and ecological issues, and the population concern fits right into the picture," said Zhao, who is a member of the Chinese government delegation.

Many studies link population growth with emissions and the effect of climate change.

"Calculations of the contribution of population growth to emissions growth globally produce a consistent finding that most of past population growth has been responsible for between 40 per cent and 60 percent of emissions growth," so stated by the 2009 State of World Population, released earlier by the UN Population Fund.

Although China's family planning policy has received criticism over the past three decades, Zhao said that China's population program has made a great historic contribution to the well-being of society.

As a result of the family planning policy, China has seen 400 million fewer births, which has resulted in 18 million fewer tons of CO2 emissions a year, Zhao said.


The M+G+R Foundation Comments: What a "revolutionary" solution!

Let us wait now and see when they will add the secondary "benefits" from the one child per family policy. "Benefits" like:

(a) Lower unemployment;
(b) "Morally justified" abortion ("After all, it would be for the benefit of all" they will say);
(c) Increased food supply, with logically lower prices;
(d) Trading in the futures markets certificates of "Birth Right".... i.e. One couple sells their right to their one child to a couple who wants to have two;
 etc.

Will the theme for the next Gay Pride Parade - should there be another one - be: "More deviation... less population!" ?

For those who have not caught on yet as to where the world is at now, allow us to interpret that handwriting on the wall:  All manner of insanity is possible and every day the magnitude of the "What next?" will greatly surpass the day's before until God finally says Enough!

The reader is now invited to review a letter we sent out to those in authority sixteen years ago:

....a Catholic nun said that the defeat in the Senate of the pro-life Nelson amendment on the feast of the Immaculate Conception was "providential" and that Mary was the first woman in the bible to express "choice."? (1)

In fact, one Catholic nun is downright giddy over the defeat. Sister Donna Quinn is pro-choice. In fact she was rebuked by her order for escorting women into abortion clinics. That is horrible enough. But what she had to say about the defeat of the Nelson amendment on the feast of the Immaculate Conception is monstrous.

“The Amendment lost today but now the work will be to take this Bill and come out with the same good news when the Senate and House work together,” Quinn said.

Citing a poem about the Virgin Mary, Quinn noted the providential date of the amendment’s defeat.

“I was reminded of being with men and women from the Unitarian faith tradition last year as they celebrated Mary who by her [ascent], they believed, was one of the first women in the New Testament to express Choice,” Quinn said.


The M+G+R Foundation Comments: This poor (2) soul is so ignorant and under evangelized (3)  that she is unable to understand the difference between a choice before and a choice after.

God gave us free will and will not impose upon any of us His Will unless we choose to accept it - to the point of giving Mary, ever Virgin, a choice before Jesus was conceived in Her womb by the action of the Holy Spirit of God.

Only within that context, not only Mary, but God is also pro choice. To equate the choice of conception to the choice of murdering a defenseless human creature would be the same as equating water with fire.

Now.... as to the why is sister Quinn allowed to misrepresent Christianity and scandalize the Faithful - that is another matter. A matter easily understood if we consider that...

a. The Chair of Peter has defined pedophilia as a crime against customs. (4)
b. The Chair of Peter has rewarded Cardinal Law  (5) - a pedophile apologist - with the most important Marian Basilica in the world - Santa Maria Majore in Rome.
c. The Chair of Peter has placed as the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Archbishop-turned-Cardinal Levada  (6) who was served a subpoena in San Francisco (just before scurrying to Rome) for the same reason Law had to resign in Boston.
d. The Irish Catholic Hierarchy, clergy and religious order have used innocent human creatures entrusted to their care as sex toys for decades  (7) with the, by default, consent of the Chair of Peter.
e. Etc., etc., etc., ad nauseum

There is no telling what little dirty secrets sister Quinn may have on her superiors - Dominicans as well as Diocesan. If she still "preaching abortion" she must have a closet full of them or her superiors are more stupid than we give them credit for.

If we were her Diocesan superior, after confirming her activities, we would convene a press conference at her convent and with the cameras rolling would place her outside her convent and throw after her whatever belongings she had with the instructions of not ever coming back unless she did it on  her knees and with a contrite heart. (8)

But then again.... can her superiors, who reside in mansions with very breakable glass roofs, throw a rock at her? We doubt it; they have too much to lose.

We must remember that we are dealing with "....the great harlot which corrupted the earth with her fornication...." [Rev. 19:2]

Knowing that there is no going back for institutionalized religion and the world, we look forward, and with great anticipation, that God deals with Babylon the Great as we read in Revelations 18. The sooner the better for every day that goes by more souls are harmed than converted. The timing and the manner, as well as its execution, to be determined solely by God and by no one else.

In any case - their future was predicted nearly 2,000 years ago:  You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt lose its savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is good for nothing any more but to be cast out, and to be trodden on by men. [Matthew 5:13]

This is precisely why they must prayed for on a daily basis.

....what Jesus stated in Matthew 11:14 about John the Baptist is not as obscure as it appears on the surface?

He said...

And if you will receive it, he is Elias that is to come.


In Luke 1: 17 some light is being shed on this mystery....

And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias; that he may turn the hearts of the fathers unto the children, and the incredulous to the wisdom of the just, to prepare unto the Lord a perfect people.

Notice the part "in the spirit and power of Elias".

Now, let us "fast rewind" to 2 Kings 2:15....

And the sons of the prophets at Jericho, who were over against him, seeing it said: The spirit of Elias hath rested upon Eliseus.

...and to 2 Ecclesiasticus 48: 13....

Elias was indeed covered with the whirlwind, and his spirit was filled up in Eliseus: in his days he feared not the prince, and no man was more powerful than he.

Now notice "The spirit of Elias hath rested upon Eliseus" and "his spirit was filled up in Eliseus"

This is used by the reincarnation promoters to claim that John the Baptizer was the reincarnation of Elias - which was not. To understand how this works we refer the serious reader to our document - The Spiritual World - How it Influences Our Behavior. (2)

Once you understand what is in there presented, you will be able to view the spirit of Elias as occupying one of the filters "F" of Eliseus and then of John the Baptizer.

Of course, this has happened again as the world is being prepared for the Second Coming of Jesus.

He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. [Matthew 11:15]

The mobile phone company Nokia is being hit by a growing economic boycott in Iran as consumers sympathetic to the post-election protest movement begin targeting a string of companies deemed to be collaborating with the regime.

Wholesale vendors in the capital report that demand for Nokia handsets has fallen by as much as half in the wake of calls to boycott Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) for selling communications monitoring systems to Iran.

"Since the news spread that NSN had sold electronic surveillance systems to the Iranian government, people have decided to buy other company's products although they know that Nokia cellphones function better with network coverage in Iran."

....in a July 24, 2009 Vespers sermon, Benedict XVI made an inadvertent admission of the failure of his Church's efforts at making God's presence known and real to mankind? (1)

He stated (1):

“In my recent Encyclical, I have tried to show the prime importance of God both in one's private life and in the life of society, of the world, of history. … If the fundamental relationship – that with God – is not living, is not lived, then no other relationship can find its right form. But this is also true for society, for humanity as such. Here, too, if God is missing, if God is discounted, if he is absent, then the compass is lacking which would show the way forward, the direction to follow in relationships as a whole.”


Comments:
   Here we have the religious leader of one sixth of mankind saying that “for humanity as such,” God is “missing,” “discounted,” or “absent.”

If this is so, what has the Church been doing with its members, its wealth, and its influence for the past 2,000 years? (2)

....the Russian Orthodox Church has published a book in Italian and Russian with texts from Benedict XVI on the culture of Europe? (1)

This is the first time the Moscow Patriarchate is publishing a compilation of texts from a Pope. It is titled "Europe, Spiritual Homeland," and includes addresses by Joseph Ratzinger during the course of more than a decade.

The presentation of the book will take place Wednesday in Rome during a round table on "The Role of the Churches in the Cultural Integration of Europe."

The volume will be introduced by the chairman of the Department of External Affairs of the Moscow Patriarchate, Archbishop Hilarion Alfeyev.

"This book is an event of unprecedented historic scope in the millennial history of Catholics and Russian Orthodox," explained the editor of the book, Pierluca Azzaro. "But before and above all, it is a great testimony of love of Christ and between Christians. From this love springs -- should spring -- European culture in all its manifold expressions: a living culture, imbued with an authentically creative moral energy, all together geared to the building of a good future for all."


The M+G+R Foundation comments:
   Someone must inform the Vatican that the Russian Orthodox Church does not represent all the Patriarchates of the Church of the East.... but by now, it really is a moot point....

It would be wasting time, which could be used for prayer, as it would in choosing a bathing suit to be ready for the already-on-the-way tsunami.

....the following were the capital errors 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 north].

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 the open.

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) and were assumed to be a group of (only) twelve (!)B-17 that were being 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 General Short.

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".


The M+G+R Foundation Comments: First - The amount of intelligence data now collected via satellites, computers and mobile phones is overwhelming, yet, ultimately it is up to a human to issue the order to act upon a "red flag". Therefore, the more data is collected the greater the probability of missing the window of opportunity to act before its too late.

Second - Are we, in and out of the government and of the Armed Forces, in better shape than we were in 1941? No! Complacency and self deification has eroded the edge given to us by High Tech. Just think of how our mental agility for basic arithmetic operations has declined after the proliferation of inexpensive hand held calculators.

.....the conservative Biblical Scholars alluded to yesterday (1) may have a "technical point" when they claim that Jesus did not say: "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do"?

The M+G+R Foundation comments:  Of course their "technical point" shows that they have little real knowledge of the Holy Scriptures, less knowledge of Jesus true man and true God (2) and no knowledge of the meaning of coherence.

Our Greek New Testament (3)  was based on "....the study and critical research of generations of scholars..." who, statistically speaking, could not all be liberals. Nonetheless, as professionals would do, the editors placed a footnote to the verse in question (Luke 23:34) which reads: Some early manuscripts do not have this sentence because that is a fact. The question is - What does that fact mean?

However, the point of the "conservative Biblical Scholars" collapses under the weight of other statements found in the Gospels. For example:

44 But I say to you, Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you: [Matthew 5]

27 But I say to you that hear: Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you. 28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them that calumniate you. 29 And to him that striketh thee on the one cheek, offer also the other[Luke 6]

35 But love ye your enemies: do good, and lend, hoping for nothing thereby: and your reward shall be great, and you shall be the sons of the Highest; for he is kind to the unthankful, and to the evil. [Luke 6]

14 For if you will forgive men their offences, your heavenly Father will forgive you also your offences. [Matthew 6]

26 But if you will not forgive, neither will your Father that is in heaven, forgive you your sins. [Mark 11]

13 Go then and learn what this meaneth, I will have mercy and not sacrifice. For I am not come to call the just, but sinners. [Matthew 9]

The most logical words to be uttered by a man who spoke as we have shown above - a man Whose life was an ongoing example of what He taught - would have been precisely: "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do."

As if the above was not enough to crush the Cafeteria Theology of those "Biblical Scholars" consider this: No one on its right mind would abuse, humiliate, torture and kill the Man who was the embodiment of the full Spirit of God (2); that is: God in the Flesh.

Remember Him also saying:  7 If you had known Me, you would without doubt have known my Father also: and from henceforth you shall know Him, and you have seen Him. [John 14]

This is why, brethren, we must approach the Holy Scriptures as we have explained elsewhere (4), otherwise the enemies of God, hiding behind Piety or Scholarly status, will dismember it and reduce it to the proverbial Old Wives Tales status.

"Biblical Scholars"?  Please!

.....in his address to the crowd before praying the Angelus (Nov. 29), Benedict XVI says of Jesus: "He is "flesh" like us, and is "rock" like God."(1)


The M+G+R Foundation comments:  Surprising as it may be,  Benedict XVI - of all people,  would concede what we have amply explained (2) - that the Church was founded on the Rock of Christ.

But, believe it or not, we have Biblical support for such an apparent incoherence.

33 And in the synagogue there was a man who had an unclean devil, and he cried out with a loud voice, 34 Saying: Let us alone, what have we to do with thee, Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the holy one of God. 35 And Jesus rebuked him, saying: Hold thy peace, and go out of him. And when the devil had thrown him into the midst, he went out of him, and hurt him not at all[Luke 4]

and

28 And when he was come on the other side of the water, into the country of the Gerasens, there met him two that were possessed with devils, coming out of the sepulchres, exceeding fierce, so that none could pass by that way. 29 And behold they cried out, saying: What have we to do with thee, Jesus Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? [Matthew 8]

Unclean spirits must speak the truth when God deems it appropriate - they have no choice. As we have said many times - satan and his agents must serve God for God is above all. Let us not never forget that satan is just another creature of God.

Our readers may have heard us say many times that the Church Administration makes the discharging of m de P's function much easier than it could be precisely by doing or saying things like Benedict XVI just did.

[our highlighting]

Contributors to the Conservative Bible Project, an online effort to create a Bible suitable for contemporary conservative sensibilities, claims Jesus' quote is a disputed addition abetted by liberal biblical scholars, even if it appears in some form in almost every translation of the Bible.

As the saying goes: When you see your neighbors' beard on fire, start soaking yours. That is the mentality of the brief reign of the False Christ.

At the risk of being labeled a flaming liberal all we have to say is: Father, forgive them; for they know not what they say.

.....faith without the total abandonment to what God Wills and the certainty that "....whatsoever you ask when ye pray, believe that you shall receive; and they shall come unto you" yields very little if any? (1)

Such statement may sound redundant or obvious - yet it is not. The lack of total abandonment to whatever God Wills as the solution to the problem at hand is the one spiritual state which blocks Divine Action the most.

There are times when God demands - for whatever good reason - that a child of His accepts the worst, and we mean really accept, so that He works the deliverance miracle at the proverbial 11th hour.

That is the crux of the Abrahamic message contained in the almost sacrifice of Isaac.

That is what it takes to know that He will come through even while being in a foreign land, not even having money for a cup of coffee (literally), surviving by eating whatever was left in the pantry - a pantry that was going to be no more since there was no money for next rent payment, and not being able to ask for any kind of help from anyone - family included.... while keep doing whatever it was that He expected you to do in life.

Just as He promised - He came through.

Of course, we are not to "sit and do nothing" and let God do it for us. We are to engage ourselves in earnest in whatever is the Will of God for us, know that there is nothing impossible for Him and place our total and absolute trust in His deliverance.... while being ready to walk up to the edge of the precipice if that is His Will.

Most individuals are not aware that St. Teresa de Jesús (de Avila) practically lived her entire religious life "just one step ahead" of the Spanish Inquisition - a particular "brand of  the Inquisition" which was not exactly known for its charity and mercy. She just kept "her nose to the Divine appointed grind stone" and He took care of the rest.

It does not matter if one is an insignificant (by world standards) individual or Queen Isabel (of Portugal) who rightfully was canonized for the merciful and charitable deeds during her lifetime - it is just a matter of total abandonment to the Will of God.

.....a new Senate report indicates that an order from Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld caused Osama bin Laden to slip through our hands? (1)

According to a Democratic congressman, Rep. Maurice Hinchey of New York, that slip-up may not have been accidental.

Rep. Maurice Hinchey had an answer for his own question: "That was done by the previous administration because they knew very well that if they would capture al-Qaeda, there would be no justification for an invasion in Iraq."

The M+G+R Foundation Comments:
  ...and the Sun is the star of our solar system.... and the force of gravity causes objects to fall to the ground....

Of course, Rep. Hinchey will be called a conspiracy theorist, etc., etc. but do not forget what  we published yesterday about The CIA and Juanita Castro.

and that....


....the largest bank in Spain, and among the largest in the world, is replacing credit cards, which still have a year or two before expiration, with new cards - equipped with "a chip"?

The "chip", of course, is the for the security of the bank's client but no explanation whatsoever is given as to how it makes its use more secure. When the pin number is refused by an individual who never uses it, after a brief "run around", they tell the customer that "they will eventually need it" for "certain transactions."

...the Memoirs of Fidel Castro's sister, Juanita Castro, seem to have independently confirmed that what we published as the reason why the Castro Regime has lasted this long is on target?
