PURPOSE

The purpose of this News Commentary Section is to assist the faithful in recognizing the signs and lies of These End Times. Somehow, many self appointed Shepherds of These Times are trying to convince the faithful that the Apocalypse will be, using street slang, "a piece of cake" for them and "hell" for all others. They are led to believe that if they "do this" and "do that" they do not have a thing to worry about (of course, so long as that between the "do this" and the "do that" they send in a donation).

Others lead the faithful to believe that "All Is Well" and will continue to be, of course, as long as those donations keep coming in...

Wrong! For either case scenario to be true, the Old and New Testament has to be invalid. Logically, if the Holy Scriptures are invalid there is no use for "Shepherds", is there? So what is their function besides collecting money?

Spending it, of course!

Now, let us focus on the real world and the news about its crumbling structures, philosophies and half-baked theories. With the assistance of the Holy Spirit of God, Who cannot be falsified, the disoriented faithful will be able to understand what is truly taking place and why.

  NEWS - UCLA students urged to expose 'radical' professors  - January 20th - Reuters

Selected Quotes:   (Highlighting, if any, by The M+G+R Foundation)

A conservative alumni group dedicated to "exposing the most radical professors" at the University of California at Los Angeles is offering to pay students $100 to record classroom lectures of suspect faculty.

The Web site of the Bruin Alumni Association also includes a "Dirty Thirty" list of professors considered by the group to be the most extreme left-wing members of the UCLA faculty, as well as profiles on their political activities and writings.

UCLA Chancellor Albert Carnesale on Thursday denounced the campaign as "reprehensible," and school officials warned that selling or distributing recordings of classroom lectures without an instructor's consent violates university policy.

News of the campaign prompted former Republican congressman James Rogan, who helped lead impeachment proceedings against former President Bill Clinton in the U.S. House of Representatives, to resign from the group's advisory board.

Also typical! If we had the time we would pursue this and, without a doubt, the "crumb trail" would lead to us Opus Dei "devotees".

But, on the other hand, if people do not believe "their reality" with what has been seriously published already, they truly deserve what awaits them. Are we going to be more Merciful than Jesus?.... [Matthew 13:11, 13, 15]

  NEWS - The gap between the rich and the poor narrows in Europe - January 15th - PÚBLICO
                  

(Highlighting, if any, by The M+G+R Foundation)

Between the years 1995 and 2003 the European Union's gap between the rich and the poor has been reduced by 11.8 % on the average.

However, some exceptions require mention. During the same period, in Italy the gap increased by 66 % while Portugal, the U.K. and Ireland remained unchanged.  Sounds good, doesn't it? Such  is the story whenthe  uncomfortable details are left out of statistics.

It was in the year 2000 that the European currency became one - the Euro - and the proverbial hell broke loose for some, to the surprise of the people but not to the surprise of the European Union "Godparents".

That same Italy, mentioned above as the Poster Child of the abyss that separates the rich and the poor, had actually narrowed the gap by 18.6 %; Portugal narrowed it by 13.5 % while the U.K. and Ireland showed hardly any change.  Therefore, the real statistics (post the Euro "Savior") tell us that Italy's gap between the rich and the poor increased a whooping 104 % and Portugal's increased by 15.6 %

Now that the reader's mind has been adequately prepared with the seemingly unfair numbers quoted above for Europe, let us look in our own backyard.

The Gini Index which determines the degree of equality in the spreading of wealth in a country shows, in the year 2005, Denmark at the head in equality with a Gini Index of 24.7. Thirty four countries under, with a Gini Index of 40.8, is the U.S., just under Mozambique (39.6) and just above Iran (43). There is not a single European nation with more inequality than the US in the spread of the wealth.

What finally floored us were the 2005 UNICEF statistics for the children in situation of poverty expressed by a percent of all children in each particular country. Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden are at the lead with the lowest percentages - 2.4, 2.8, 3.4 and 4.2 % respectively. Mexico is at the bottom with 27.7 % of the children in situation of relative poverty. No surprises, right? None until we see that the country just above Mexico - one removed from the bottom - is the U.S with 21.9 % of its children living in relative poverty. Even Greece and Italy are doing better with 12.4 % and 16.6 % respectively.


The M+G+R Foundation Comments

The whole point of sharing with the Faithful the above statistics is to underscore, from a different perspective, that appearances are deceiving; even the headline of the newspaper was deceiving since the headline was:  The abyss between the rich and the poor increases in Portugal.

How many times have we heard that U.S. kids are getting too much? How many times have we heard that the one in five children in the richest and most powerful nation on earth, the U.S., live in relative poverty?

Amazing, isn't it? Will you be able to recognize the FalseChrist?

  NEWS - How many sex offenders in schools?
                   and UK's Education Secretary and Opus Dei member answers: No idea. - January 12th - The Scotsman

Selected Quotes:   (Highlighting, if any, by The M+G+R Foundation)

RUTH Kelly, the Education Secretary, last night admitted she does not know how many registered sex offenders her department has allowed to work in schools.

In a humiliating confession as she ordered an inquiry into the affair, Ms Kelly said she was "not in full knowledge" of allegedly low-risk cases - although reports said at least ten offenders had been cleared for school work.

And pressure on her mounted as Michael Bichard, who headed the inquiry into the Soham killings, said he was "disappointed"

Until this week, the most controversial fact that had emerged about Ruth Kelly was her membership of Opus Dei, the Catholic sect that has been caricatured in popular culture for its practice of corporal mortification.

Yesterday, the Education Secretary's critics called for Ms Kelly to exercise the same degree of self-flagellation.


The M+G+R Foundation Comments


Typical!

This reminds us that, when God or the Catholic Faith is attacked, Opus Dei members keep quiet; however, when Opus Dei is attacked, they come out of the woodwork to defend Opus Dei.

This also reminds us of Philip Hansen, the ex-FBI head of Soviet counter espionage. The US spy that probably caused the most damage to the US National Security ever.

This also reminds us that Louis Freeh, Hansen's boss, another Opus Dei "star", who, barely out of office writes a tell-all book... as if he had been the head of Health, Education and Welfare or the Social Security Administration or the Veteran Administration and not Chief of the FBI.

  NEWS - The report of the 'sound of moans' could have led to the contradicting news about survivors - January 5th - CNN

Selected Quotes:   (Highlighting, if any, by The M+G+R Foundation)

Rescuers found the sole survivor of an explosion that trapped 13 miners in a West Virginia coal mine "by the sound of moans," mining officials said Wednesday, about 12 hours after family members learned the initial report that their loved ones were alive was erroneous.

Just before midnight Tuesday, miners' families thought the men were alive after 41 hours of entrapment. Church bells rang in celebration, and friends and family members sang "Amazing Grace"

At 2:15 a.m., the executives received definitive word that only one miner had survived.

Hatfield's announcement sent Anna Casto, who lost her cousin, into a tirade. Casto said the tragedy has shaken the faith of some in the community, who "don't even know if there is a Lord anymore," she said. "We had a miracle, and it was taken away from us."

John Casto was at the church when the false report arrived and later, the terrible news. After the first  report, "they were praising God," he said. And after the second "they were cursing."


The M+G+R Foundation Comments

What some individuals experienced in Tallmansville, WVa, specifically  "the tragedy has shaken the faith of some in the community, who "don't even know if there is a Lord anymore" will be repeated at a global level once Step No. 1 manifest itself. As God taught us through the test His favored favored Job had to endure, it is very, very easy to Praise God when: (a) Our stomachs are full; (b) We live in comfort and security; (c) We are in good health; and (d) Everything is going "our way" (or so we think.)

The real proof of  truly being of God is to Praise Him under any and every circumstance - even though it may be painful and difficult at the time - and that is precisely the "proof by fire" that all will have to endure before the conclusion of These End Times. Those events will separate the "God loving and trusting men" from the "men talking about trusting and loving God".

For those who are not familiar with Job, we strongly suggest to carefully review at least the first chapter so that what is to come will be better understood and God be Glorified for His Mercy In Action.

Brethren - we are not trying to scare you. On the contrary, we are trying to prepare you so that you do not simply die of fear. But if that is your choice, we cannot be more merciful than God and thus, must respect your choices.

  NEWS - Italian sues Catholic Priest for for abuse of popular credulity and impersonation - January 4th - Reuters

      Quotes from the formal complaint at the Seat of the Court of Justice in Viterbo

Luigi Cascioli lodges the present formal complaint at the Seat of the Court of Justice in Viterbo, Versus don Enrico Righi, parish priest in Bagnoregio, as representative of ministers of religion, for abuse of popular credulity and impersonation.

After long and deep studies consisting of (and not only) textual exegesis of the Old and New Testament and other Sacred Scriptures, the undersigned has come to the conclusion that many of the facts produced and presented as if being true and historical in the so called “Holy Scriptures”, are in reality false, first of all the historicization of the figure of Jesus Christ, for the most part based on the figure of John of Gamala, son of Judas, downright descendant of the Asmoneian stock.

The M+G+R Foundation Comments

At the risk of being repetitious we must once again thank God for His continued assistance in fulfilling our function for the End of These Times.

The above lawsuit and accompanying book, enhanced by the seemingly never ending blatant abuses by the Roman Church Administrators, continue to demolish the little Faith left. This is why we encourage one and all to carefully review our document Biblical Literalism or Symbolism - Part I and Part II and Links,  as well a the brief historical background of the Gospels which we have just published.

The Faithful are so under Evangelized, through no fault of their own,  that most cannot even defend the most basic tenets of the Catholic Faith.

Knowledge is Power! Feed you Faith; do not count on Father So and So to defend it (or you!) - he is probably as lost as you are! (If he were not, would the Church be in the state it is now today?)

  NEWS - Criminal Inquiry Opens Into Spying (NSA Eavesdropping) Leak -   December 31st -  NY Times

Selected Quotes:   (Highlighting, if any, by The M+G+R Foundation)

WASHINGTON, Dec. 30 - The Justice Department said on Friday that it had opened a criminal investigation into the disclosure of classified information about a secret National Security Agency program under which President Bush authorized eavesdropping on people in the United States without court warrants.

The program, whose existence was revealed in an article in The New York Times on Dec. 16, has provoked sharp criticism from civil liberties groups, some members of Congress and some former intelligence officials.....

The administration first learned that The New York Times had obtained information about the secret eavesdropping program more than a year ago and expressed concern to editors that its disclosure could jeopardize terrorism investigations. The newspaper withheld the article at the time, and the government did not open a leak investigation at that time, presumably because such an inquiry might itself disclose the program.


The M+G+R Foundation Comments

Once again!.... we cannot thank God enough for His continued assistance in fulfilling our function for the End of These Times. In a recent document (1) we stated:

From the bottom of his heart, miguel de Portugal invites all the visitors to our Domains which have a domain signature of "nipr.mil" to pay close attention to what we have to say: Not all of you are "birds of  the same feather" and the individual who appears to be cooperating with you now to protect the U.S. may be "ideological relative" of Robert P. Hansen.

Let us look very closely at the much talked about news regarding the NSA eavesdropping.

We read above that:
The New York Times had obtained information about the secret eavesdropping program more than a year ago . Everyone knows that when the press gets a hold of such a "hot item", sooner or later they will "cash it in". Whether is Nixon's cronies breaking in Watergate or the already famous "Clinton's blue dress."

On December 29th we read (2) that NSA had bee caught "red handed" because they had "....been inserting files known as cookies onto the computers of individuals who visit the NSA Web site, a violation of federal rules meant to protect privacy. Don Weber, an NSA spokesperson, told the AP that the cookies were the result of a recent software upgrade. On Wednesday, NSA officials admitted using the cookies, but said that the agency had made a mistake. 'After being tipped to the issue, we immediately disabled the cookies,' he said."

So far, so good. They had violated the law; realized that someone was going to catch on; disabled the cookie generating program; and when the expected "revelation to the press" occurred, they were no longer doing it, they had a good and believable excuse and "Case closed!"  [Incidentally, we believe that NSA, CIA, FBI, Pentagon, etc. should be allowed to place cookies in all visitors to their domains. We do not have a reason to do so but they do!]

The problem over eavesdropping flap is the "unseen" obvious. Some individuals at NSA knew that the illegal eavesdropping information was in the hands of the New York Times; they knew that sooner or later (or when they chose?) it would make front pages all over the world; they knew that it would cause a bi-partisan uproar; and, above all, they knew that it would cause a tremendous embarrassment to President Bush. "Amazingly" enough the "leak" saw the light just about at the worse time for President Bush, when his approval rating was hitting rock bottom.

If this would not have been a staged event to rock the US government at the very top, the moment the NSA knew about the leak - "more than a year ago" - they would have: (a) Discontinued it; or (b) Legalize it somehow so that when it hit the presses the impact would be negligible. Actually - the WH could have turned it into a positive publicity stunt by acknowledging that they had made a mistake but the moment they realized it, they corrected to uphold the letter of the law.

Therefore, once again, we remind our "Guardian Angels"  who visit our Domains under the signature "nipr.mil" that: Not all of you are "birds of  the same feather" and the individual who appears to be cooperating with you now to protect the US may be an "ideological relative" (3)  of Robert P. Hansen. 

We may not favor the Bush Administration's policies but (4), as Our Lord Jesus Christ teaches us, we believe in fair play. To lie and deceive, as the Roman Church seem to teach those in power, for "a greater good" (of the Church, of course!) is still duplicity and certainly has nothing in common with the behaviour of the real disciples of Jesus Christ, whom they claim to Shepherd.

  NEWS - We're "Neither Angels nor Demons," Says Opus Dei Spokesman -   December 25 -  Zenit

Selected Quotes:   (Highlighting, if any, by The M+G+R Foundation)

"An Opus Dei spokesman has expressed satisfaction with a new book on the personal prelature written by an American journalist.

Marc Carroggio, who oversees Opus Dei's relationship with international journalists in Rome, said he was satisfied with the book just published by John Allen. "Opus Dei: An Objective Look Behind the Myths and Reality of the Most Controversial Force in the Catholic Church" has been published so far in English, Portuguese and Korean.

Carroggio told ZENIT that this is the first book that compares dispassionately the myths and reality surrounding "the Work," as it's called by Opus Dei members. "The author has understood well the nature of Opus Dei," Carroggio said.

Q: You must be happy since this book clears up many issues about Opus Dei.

Carroggio: I worked in the Rome press office while John Allen was writing this book. I can say that I am satisfied with it, especially with respect to its method."


The M+G+R Foundation Comments

We cannot thank God enough for His continued assistance in fulfilling our function for the End of These Times. No one would believe us if we stated that Mr. Allen's book was no more than an approved white-wash - carefully applied after the Da Vinci's Code was utilized to call the world's attention to the Opus Dei. However, when an individual as Mr. Carroggio endorses it, then it has been confirmed.

Traditionally Opus Dei will not raise its voice to defend an outrage against God, or the Catholic Church but if anyone that they think has wide public reach, they will "jump in hands and feet" to defend their group. God also gave us a golden opportunity to illustrate that.

If only 5% of what may be learned about Opus Dei in our Opus Dei Indexes in English and Spanish were true, it would be enough to expose Allen's book as another Opus fraud. Personally we are fed up with their meddling in world affairs, but, thanks be to God, their end is not far off. We shall offer such disgust precisely for the conversion of those amongst their membership who seem to be completely ignorant of their ultimate goal.
