I once again restate an excellent post by The Timman. I couldn’t agree more with his sentiments.
I pass along The Timman’s thoughts concerning the redoubtable Ann Barnhardt, with my hearty endorsement.
Remember how the early news reports of the Wuhan Flu frightened nearly all of us? Recall the videos of people collapsing dead in the streets in China, screaming from apartment building windows as the doors were welded shut by "government men" in hazmat suits, vans loaded with bodies dumping them in mass graves, scenes allegedly … Continue reading A Wuhan Flu Reflection
Why do I have the feeling that this same sort of thing is happening in the U.S. as we write?

FromRome.Info presents here an un-official English translation of a public letter of protest by Catherine Riva and Serena Tinari, 2 investigative journalists who specialize in the coverage of health issues in Switzerland, and co-founders in 2015 of Re-Check, an organization which reports on issues of the quality of health care in the Helvetian Republic. They wrote in French at AntiPresse.net, on April 5, 2020.
Swiss media and coronavirus: stop fueling fear
by Catherine Riva & Serena Tinari
We are concerned that the current media coverage of the coronavirus epidemic is primarily anxiety and emotional. This stems at least from two factors: on the one hand, a presentation of the figures which does not allow to get as realistic a view as possible of the gravity of the epidemic and the way it is evolving in Switzerland; on the other, to the tendency to pinpoint unrepresentative…

The Timman nails it. Listen up. y'all.
Since the election of Donald J. Trump as President of the United States, there has been a spike in social media traffic concerning something called "Qanon", with political leftists in an unusually elevated (even for them) state of agitation, and those on the right responding more or less in kind. If you're really bored, run … Continue reading The Gospels, “Q”, and “The Synoptic Problem”

Reposting here, with permission, some excellent comments from Boniface on his blog, https://unamsanctamcatholicam.blogspot.com/2020/03/some-coronavirus-catch-up.html Here goes: Some Coronavirus Catch-Up Greetings, friends. I've had a lot of thoughts over the past several weeks and every time I sat down to share them, something else drew my attention away or some other rumination caused me to pause and reevaluate … Continue reading Reblog: Some Coronavirus Catch-Up
I sure hope someone at the Diocese of Dallas reads this.
by Br. Alexis Bugnolo
It’s not total victory against the arbitrary, prejudiced, irrational, unjust, bigoted persecution of the Catholics of Italy, but its a step back to normality: the Italian Ministry of the Interior in an official explanation of the Health Decrees against Coronavirus spread, has affirmed the following:
- Catholics can visit the local church or Parish to pray if they are on their way to work or to buy groceries or a newspaper or are engaged in necessary exercise or are walking their dog or must visit someone who cannot care for himself.
- Ceremonies such as Weddings which do not require the violation of the prescribed social-distancing of 1 meter are permitted.
- Holy Week Services can be transmitted from Churches where the minimum number of clergy and assistants are present.
Of course, this is merely throwing crumbs to the peasants, but Catholics now have permission to show their faith…

Hmm…anyone believe all this is just a series of coincidences?
by David Kaftal
Currently the world’s economies are crashing, much of the world’s population is under what is effectively house arrest, and the mainstream media, the world’s governments, and talking heads with M.D.’s and Ph.D.’s are telling us that it is unavoidable and in our best interest.
Did the architects of these draconian measures that created the above massive collateral damage know in advance that their approach would have this effect?
Whatever the answer to that question, it is perhaps curious that the people who crafted this response were those who would profit the most from picking up the pieces afterwards. Also curious and possibly significant is the fact that just weeks after holding panel discussions and enacting the response to a worldwide pandemic of an imaginary novel coronavirus that was highly contagious and attacked the respiratory system, the exercise had become real world. But, this time it was not…
