The M+G+R Foundation
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 have 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!

NEWS - Vatican Cardinal Sees "New Inquisition" - Pressure Groups Impede Church's Voice
VATICAN CITY, OCT. 19, 2004 (Zenit.org) - If John Paul II and the Church is little heard today (1), it is partly due to "powerful cultural, economic and political pressure groups," says Cardinal Renato Martino, president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.
According to the cardinal, there are today "new holy inquisitions full of money and arrogance" that are motivated "by prejudice" against everything that is Christian.
NEWS - New Pope Book Says Communism Was 'Necessary Evil'
"Memory and Identity," which is due to be published early next year, is the ailing 84-year-old pontiff's latest and perhaps last book intended for a mass circulation audience.
Before we devote a complete document to this new farce from the handlers of H.H. John Paul II, we recommend the Faithful who wants to learn to discern the wheat from the chaff to review our exhaustive documentation and exposé of an earlier book farce staged by the same handlers. The opening document of said exposé leads to a letter written to the official Spokesman for H.H. John Paul II, a doctor in psychiatry and Opus Dei Supernumerary Joaquín Navarro Valls, whose first published book was precisely on psychological manipulation of the masses.
NEWS - Putin Offers Hand to Bush in U.S. Election
"The attacks of international terrorism in Iraq are directed not only at international coalition forces but at President Bush personally," said Putin, speaking in the Tajik capital. "International terrorism has given itself the goal of causing maximum damage to Bush in the election battle, the goal of blocking the re-election of Bush for a second presidential term," he told a news conference.
May those who have eyes, "See"; and those who have ears, "Hear" so that their suffering is minimized as the world plunges into the abyss before its resurrection at The End of These Times.
NEWS - Claimed Pro-Life or Alleged Pro-Death - That seems to be "The Issue"
It seems that the central theme of the upcoming U.S. Presidential elections has become the claimed Pro-Life and the alleged Pro-Death stance of the candidates in question. Data and statistics talk louder than demagoguery. Therefore, since the only data that we had about the claimed Pro-Life camp was: (1) Record "legal" executions in Texas; and (2) the Middle East drowning in the daily bloodbath of the children of the U.S. and the Middle Eastern countries - including Israel, we requested from the appropriate parties if there were any abortion statistics for the last 10 to 14 years. We thought that perhaps, in spite of the bloodbath of innocent children of God in the Middle East, the claimed Pro-Life candidate had done more to protect the life of the unborn than just issue meaningless and toothless directives.
One of our readers just forwarded to us an article that provides such statistics. Our reader, utilizing segments of the article, answered our questions. Now, we, in turn share such information with those who are truly seeking the truth. If you have better concrete statistics that would disprove the above, please forward them to us. If they merit publication, they will be given "equal time". Please refrain from giving your opinions on this matter or providing hearsay data - communications of that nature will be deleted without further ado.
The Statistics Received
I look at the fruits of political policies more than words. I analyzed the data on abortion during the George W. Bush presidency. There is no single source for this information - federal reports go only to 2000, and many states do not report - but I found enough data to identify trends. My findings are counterintuitive and disturbing. Abortion was decreasing. When President Bush took office, the nation's abortion rates were at a 24-year low, after a 17.4% decline during the 1990s. This was an average decrease of 1.7% per year, mostly during the latter part of the decade. (This data comes from Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life using the Guttmacher Institute's studies).
When George W. Bush assumes the leadership of the United States in 2001, one would expect the abortion rate to continue its consistent course downward, if not plunge if we judge by the level of pro-life rhetoric. Instead, the opposite happened. I found three states that have posted multi-year statistics through 2003, and abortion rates have risen in all three:
Michigan's increased by 11.3% from 2000 to 2003.
Pennsylvania's increased by 1.9% from 1999 to 2002.
I found 13 additional states that reported statistics for 2001 and 2002.
Five saw a decrease (4.3% average decrease)
Under President Bush, the decade-long trend of declining abortion rates appears to have reversed. Given the trends of the 1990s, 52,000 more abortions occurred in the United States in 2002 than would have been expected before this change of direction.
From the article we may also be able to discern some "non religious" contributing factors:
Second, half of all women who abort say they do not have a reliable mate ...
Third, women worry about health care for themselves and their children. ...
Economic policy and abortion are not separate issues; they form one moral imperative. Rhetoric is hollow, without health care, health insurance, jobs, child care, and a living wage. Pro-life in deed, not merely in word, means we need policies that provide jobs and health insurance and support for prospective mothers."

NEWS - Group of Bishops Using Influence to Oppose Kerry
"The church says abortion is a foundational issue,'' the archbishop explained to a group of Catholic college students gathered in a sports bar here in this swing state on Friday night. He stopped short of telling them whom to vote for, but he reminded them of Mr. Kerry's support for abortion rights. And he pointed out the potential impact his re-election could have on Roe v. Wade.
Archbishop Chaput, a friend and an obvious collaborator of Opus Dei, by his actions, continues to insist, like Escrivá did, that temporal power is greater than spiritual power. This has been the hallmark of certain key Administrators of the Roman Catholic Church since they fraudulently claimed that Emperor Constantine had Willed the Roman Empire to it.
From then on, it has been downhill for the world and for the Catholic Faithful who have placed their trust in those whom they thought "knew best" instead of trusting the Pristine Catholic Faith delivered through, and in spite of, said Church.
Oh, yes - Archbishop Chaput and others are most certainly the descendants of the original Apostles... but let no one forget that Judas Iscariot was also an Apostle appointed by Jesus Christ Himself!
Where do we find Jesus Christ - Who came down from Heaven to give us a visible example of how we were to live our lives since the religious leaders had persistently turned a deaf ear to all prophets sent before - engaging in political activism? The Roman Empire was crushing His people and they had a terrible "human rights violation record", yet, did He lead a political revolt against the political oppressor of His people? No! Who was the one who, according to historical experts and biblical implications, was hoping that Jesus would lead a revolution against the Roman Empire? Judas Iscariot!
We ask you then: Would you cast your vote for Archbishop Chaput and associates or for Jesus Christ?
Brethren, this is not about politics... this is about leading the unsuspecting faithful down the Primrose Path to hell.
NEWS - Warsaw's mayor battles sex industry over "World sex championships"
The organisers of an erotic fair in the Polish capital said Thursday they would defy an order from the mayor's office and go ahead and stage a "test" for the woman who can carry out a sex act with as many men as possible.
The hosts of the four-day "Eroticon" festival, taking place for the fifth year running, would not reveal time or place for the competition, but promised to beat the world sex record.
Wake up people! This is precisely what the Islamic world is determined to prevent happening in their countries. Unfortunately, the World Masters and the apparent mindless zombies who blindly follow them will only understand this when the world is completely awash in its own blood.
As we have said before and say again: If this is what it will take for man to pay attention to God and return the right path, He Will allow it. It will not be the first time... but it will certainly be the last time!
NEWS - The Vatican Shows its anti-Russian, Aanti-American and anti-Semitic hand
A political editorials published on September 5 in "Avvenire" [the newspaper, directed by Dino Boffo, that is owned by the Italian bishops' conference, headed by the pope's vicar, Cardinal Camillo Ruini] and penned by Maurizio Blondet, a special correspondent and a columnist of the newspaper, let the anti-Russian and anti-Semitism that pervades much of the higher echelons of the Vatican seep through like some poisonous venom.
Blondet begins by charging Putin with this fault:
repression: one does not negotiate with terrorists or criminals. One uproots them."
But then he extends the criticism to the West. And in particular, to the heads of the United States and Israel:
None of the three – if one considers well – is exempt from suspicions of having exploited collective fear for his electoral advantage, or of using the necessary restrictions of liberty brought by the 'war on terror' to silence his critics and adversaries."
NEWS - The Vatican Shocked With Fátima (Front Page News)
Translation of key headlines and commentaries from Portuguese to English.
"The Vatican severely criticized the prayers of the Dalai Lama and of a Hindu priest in the Sanctuary."
Portuguese Bishop's Conference invited to replace the Bishop under whose tutelage the Sanctuary of Fátima finds itself . It seems that the Vatican is also calling for the replacement of the long time Rector of the Sanctuary, Msgr. Luciano Guerra.
The Roman Curia feels that the Ecumenism displayed in the Sanctuary of Fátima went beyond the appropriate limits. The feeling in Rome is that either the demanded changes are implemented by the Portuguese Hierarchy or the Vatican will step in and take under its tutelage the management of the Sanctuary and its ample riches.
Now, the real struggle begins. To take away the Sanctuary of Fátima from the control of the Portuguese Catholic Church is much, much easier said than done. Rome forgets that in Portugal, attempts to, or real threats of, public lynching as the result of political vendettas is still "normal" We know very well who is behind both sides and the interaction is going to be most interesting. Tragically and as usual, it will be damaging to the Faith.
NEWS - Miraculous' Christ Washes Up in Texas Rio Grande
Police in Eagle Pass, Texas, said up to 40 people a day are coming to pay homage to the five-foot-tall figurine, known as "The Christ of the Undocumented," which was found by U.S. Border Patrol agents in the river.
"Some come to pray, and some come and just touch it," police lieutenant Daniel Morales said by telephone on Monday. "We have never experienced anything like this before, and interest is growing by the day."
Local Catholic Church authorities called the figure's arrival "miraculous" and said they wanted to place it in a specially dedicated chapel in the city.
"Jesus Christ manifests himself in many places, but he showed himself here in the way of an undocumented migrant," said Marta Ramirez, a spokeswoman for the city's Our Lady of Refuge Church.
"We think it's appropriate to place it in a special chapel."
At the risk of being called "heretics", "conspiracy theorists", etc. we want to call this new "miracle" a fraud-in-the-making.
That technique - a statue appearing miraculously - has been used many times for centuries in Europe and the Americas by the Roman Catholic clergy to "kindle the faith" of the otherwise unimpressed (by their example) wayward faithful. It has proven to be a tremendous source of income and has continued to foster the spirit of idolatry, which seems to be well rooted in the (improper) practice of Roman Catholicism.
Neither God nor the pristine Roman Catholic Faith needs such bogus assistance.
We do look forward to the day when God brings the prostitution of the Faith to a thundering end - something that He will do Himself without the "assistance" of the Opus Dei; after all, they will also be directly affected by such "thundering action".

NEWS - 1918 killer flu virus to be tested in UW lab
Study needed to head off next epidemic, scientists say
They hope the insight they gain will unravel the mystery of why tens of millions of people worldwide died from the virulent flu strain and lead to development of better vaccines and drugs that may save lives in the future.
"This was the most deadly infectious disease in the history of mankind, killing at least 40 million people," said Dr. Michael Katze, a UW microbiologist and principal investigator for the local arm of the project.
"To this day, nobody understands why the virus was so deadly."
On July 13, 1917, Mary said to the children at Fátima:
But what should we expect from the scientists? Those who were to take aggressive spiritual action to avert World War II, the Administrators of the Roman Catholic Church, sat on their hands, as has been customary for the last 1600 years unless their physical patrimony was at stake, and we are still paying for those consequences.
God made His promise, through Mary, good, and Worl War I ended as the result of such plague. For those who understand the Divine, it is clear that that was the most merciful way to end World War I.
Well, my dear brothers and sisters, if another such plague is what is going to take to mercifully subdue the arrogance of man - cleric or otherwise - "May God grant us such Grace!" [and you may certainly quote miguel de Portugal as making such invocation.]

NEWS - [New York Times] Russians Cite Porous Security in Terror Bombings of 2 Planes
Prosecutor General Vladimir V. Ustinov said that the two women had been detained in the airport shortly before boarding, but both were released by a police supervisor and one swiftly bribed her way onto the aircraft she would later destroy. She paid a paltry sum: the... equivalent to $34, Mr. Ustinov said.
Mr. Ustinov reported that the investigation into the bombings "has established that a Sibir Airlines official who was responsible for controlling passenger registration and boarding allowed one of the female terrorists to board the airplane in violation of all regulations and for a bribe." Corruption is endemic in post-Soviet Russia, infecting virtually all spheres of life. A report published this week by The Economist Intelligence Unit, a service produced by the Economist magazine, estimated that bribes amounted to 4 percent of Russia's gross domestic product in 2001.
NEWS - In a secret Paris cavern, the real underground cinema
Members of the force's sports squad, responsible - among other tasks - for policing the 170 miles of tunnels, caves, galleries and catacombs that underlie large parts of Paris, stumbled on the complex while on a training exercise... across the Seine from the Eiffel Tower.
After entering the network through a drain next to the Trocadero, the officers came across a tarpaulin marked: Building site, No access. Behind that, a tunnel held a desk and a closed-circuit TV camera set to automatically record images of anyone passing....
Further along, the tunnel opened into a vast 400 sq. metre cave some 18m underground, "like an underground amphitheatre, with terraces cut into the rock and chairs"... "The whole thing ran off a professionally installed electricity system and there were at least three phone lines down there."
Three days later, when the police returned accompanied by experts from the French electricity board... the phone and electricity lines had been cut and a note was lying in the middle of the floor: "Do not," it said, "try to find us."
The miles of tunnels and catacombs underlying Paris are essentially former quarries, dating from Roman times, from which much of the stone was dug to build the city...
The recent discovery of three newly enlarged tunnels underneath the capital's high-security La Santé prison was put down to the activities of one such group, and another, identifying itself as the Perforating Mexicans, last night told French radio the subterranean cinema was its work.
Patrick Alk, a photographer who has published a book on the urban underground exploration movement... told RTL radio the cavern's discovery was "a shame, but not the end of the world". There were "a dozen more where that one came from," he said.
"You guys have no idea what's down there."
With the information summarized above as a backdrop - Can anyone see how easily would be to essentially bring France to its knees by just a handful of potential martyrs placing explosives in key spots of the 170 miles of known underground tunnels. Only God knows how many more there are about which the "tunnel patrol" obviously have no idea that exist.
We challenge any State to tackle and subdue the 21st Century Ivan the Terrible (the hurricane that is trampling through the Caribbean with a destructive force seldom seen). However, we can fully trust God to protect His own from such brutal manifestation of the forces of nature... forces which God has allowed.
Yesterday we read in the NEWS
"With regard to preventive strikes on terrorist bases, we will take any action to eliminate terrorist bases in any region of the world. But this does not mean we will carry out nuclear strikes," (*) General Yuri Baluyevsky said Wednesday.
Baluyevsky added that Russia's choice of action "will be determined by the concrete situation where ever it may be in the world. "Military action is the last resort in the fight against terrorism."
Today we read in the NEWS
MOSCOW (Reuters) September 9, 2004 - Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned the West not to meddle with Russia's Chechnya policy on Thursday in the wake of a bloody hostage crisis, highlighting a growing rift over the issue between former Cold War foes.
He said, in a reference to British and U.S. offers of asylum to spokesmen for Chechen rebel leader Aslan Maskhadov, that the West was directly interfering in an internal issue. "When our Western partners say we should re-examine our policy, what you call our tactics, I would advise them not to interfere in our Russian internal affairs," he told reporters.
"Preventive strikes do not mean using navy or air force," (*) Interfax news agency quoted him as saying. "It will all depend on circumstances ... We will not warn anyone in advance."
The following quote was deleted from the original mews report: " Russia is angry that Britain and the United States have given asylum to spokesmen for Chechen separatist leader Aslan Maskhadov, who Moscow blames along with rebel commander Shamil Basayev for the deaths of hundreds of hostages."
(*) Of course, the Russian central government also said that they would not storm the school and cause a slaughter of children but, "Oops!", something went wrong and it happened. This is the same "Oops!" which will cause the manifestation of Step No. 1
However, we take this opportunity to plead, no, not plead, beg the Bush Administration not to make the miscalculation we pleaded with President Bush not to make before the attack against Iraq. The entire Bush Administration key players, added up together, are not a match for Vladimir Putin. An "Oops!" after a series of nuclear tipped ICBM's have been launched is impossible to reverse. This is not a matter of partisan politics, this is a matter of playing with a fire that will burn and, in this case, will also consume.
NEWS - Study links TV to teen sexual activity
CHICAGO, Illinois (Reuters) Tuesday, September 7, 2004 -- Teenagers who watch a lot of television with sexual content are twice as likely to engage in intercourse than those who watch few such programs, according to a study published Tuesday.
"The impact of television viewing is so large that even a moderate shift in the sexual content of adolescent TV watching could have a substantial effect on their sexual behavior," she added.
Therefore, if in a 30 minute television program all they need is 10 minutes of advertising, for which millions of dollars may be charged, to keep the market economy going, in God's Name: What do you think the effect that the programming covering the other 20 minutes of the broadcast do to the mind of the viewers? Of your children?
We have written about this years ago - but - Is it really necessary to point out the obvious? To run surveys? Only if you have been thoroughly brainwashed and lead a zombie like existence.
Quit talking about the Virgin Mary while rolling your eyes in ecstasy and start obeying Her. Talk is very cheap... Shut up and act!
Yes, this is the generation about which Jesus was referring to in His words reproduced above.
NEWS REPORT - Where in Washington, D.C. is Sun Myung Moon?
Although we are not politically oriented and strive to steer away from involvement in political discussions, when someone like Moon gets involved in high powered political maneuvers, miguel de Portugal does get involved. Not because of the political aspects, but because someone is daring to usurp the position of Jesus Christ and attempting to enlist the world powers to implement his "Salvation" program.
The following is a confirmed excerpt of a statement by Moon from a reference we have just received:
1. Moon is referring to Former President George Bush
2. Underscoring by The M+G+R Foundation
In the republican establishment, the only hope is for them to unite with Father. I have great hope for America. However, if America is not going to heed Father's wishes, then Father has an alternative.
The former Soviet Union. All those former communist countries. They will be my object. I will work through them. Ultimately one way or another Father's wishes will be accomplished. Father came to the white world to save it. Why did Father spend money that was not earned in this county? To educate Americans and to educate the UTS graduates. This is another manifestation of loving the enemy. Since American Christian churches have come against Father so adamantly, Father created the Unification Church to replace the Christian world in America. Father invested considerable resources to save America. So now not only this world, but the communist world, the eastern European block, China and N. Korea will all come under Father's wings.
This, of course, does not surprise us. We do not always know the details of what is taking place in the physical world even though we may be fully aware of the situation (s) through the Grace of God. When He sees fit, then He send the physical confirmation of what He has granted m de P through spiritual means.
Once again we suggest that our readers carefully review the Sequence of Events Leading to the End of These Times - most specially Steps No. 1 and 2 and look around the world today... think... and then pray!
Regarding the upcoming U.S. elections... Messrs. Bush and Kerry can campaign all they want and promise the voters the moon but, ultimately, God Will decide it strictly based on the level of volume to which the megaphone He uses for the deaf to hear must be set at.
NEWS - Council code of Coventry City has been amended to take out direct reference to the Freemasons and Roman Catholic societies Opus Dei and the Catenians.
They deleted overt references to Freemasons, Opus Dei and the Catenians. But they made it clear staff who were members of them should still declare it, because the groups were covered by the new wording.
The new ruling reads:
"You must therefore declare your membership of any organisation whose rules or requirements of membership could be regarded as suggesting a degree of loyalty to that organisation".
"This could arise by reason of an organisation having an obligation of secrecy about its rules, its membership or conduct and/or a commitment of allegiance or support to that organisation. Such organisations may or may not be charitable concerns and they may also have a local, regional, national, or international aspect."
Where there is smoke, there is certainly fire to be discovered. Coventry City has been wise enough to install such virtual "Fire Extinguishers".
Of course - if a group is functioning within the civil and ecclesiastical laws, rules and norms which are in place... why is the secrecy needed?
