China’s Island Fortifications: Challenge Internat’l Norms

“While the world is combating the new coronavirus, COVID-19, China continues to fortify its islands in the South China Sea, with only muted response from the international community. Even the sinking of a Vietnamese fishing vessel brought minimal reaction from the international community, through the Philippines (https://asia.nikkei.com/Politics/International-relations/Philippines-sides-with-Vietnam-after-China-sinks-fishing-boat)and U.S. military have made statements against the incident.

Prior to COVID19, China’s “War Without Gunsmoke strategy had already (https://www.usni.org/press/books/chinas-maritime–gray-zone-operations resulted in the near-normalization of its South china Sea military buildup and its “nine dash line” claims. Since 2013 the “Great Wall of Sand” (so dubbed by former Pacific Fleet Commander Adm. Harry Harris) has become even more formidable. Combined with Chinese disregard for a 2016 Hague ruling that invalidated Chinese nine-dash-line claims, it is obvious that China will continue to persist in its claims, as I detailed in a 2017 article for Foreign Policy https://foreignpolicy.com/2017/06/29/could-the-chinese-communist-party-survive-dropping-south-china-sea-claims/

The nine dash line used by the Peoples Republic of China (and added to the map by them) for their claims of a major part of the South China Sea. The contested area includes the Paracel Islands, Spratley Islands, Protas Islands, the Maclesfield Bank and the Scarborough Shoal. Added by Haurietas Aquas

Despite this, the United States, the United Nations and the Association of Southeast Nations states can make headway by quickly acting in concert to prevent further garrisoning of the islands claimed by China in the South China Sea.

The islands afford China bases from which it can intimidate ASEAN states: (Association of South East Asian Nations, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam) into abandoning their claims or acquiescing to China’s demands. China’s paramilitary forces and fishing vessels use the island bases as hubs from which to harass and even sink commercial ships from ASEAN countries. A coordinated, international response is necessary to curtail the success of China’s Monroe-esque Doctrine throughout Asia. (Monroe Doctrine warned European nations that the U.S. would not tolerate puppet regimes 1823)

The UN has a vital role to play in ensuring that China adheres to international law and respects the sovereignty of other member states. Any country that does not uphold the law or support the international system should be pressured to do so by the UnN. , lest its rulings become irrelevant”

It would be difficult to bring cohesion to the above looming assaults on South Asian states by China on this day of July 18, 2020 as the world contends with the Chinese Communist Party Virus Covid-19. This is the name which China approved of and so we use it. The entire world has been infected by something from atheist Communist China.

Indeed it seems that this is coming, or, has come, to pass.

Plymouth, MA Business Owner Sues Governor Over Mask Mandate

By Emily Clarke eclark@wickedlocal.com

Plymouth – A downtown business owner is suing Gov. Charlie Baker for requiring that she and her workers and customers wear masks. She alleges the requirement is unconstitutional

In her complaint, filed with the U.S. District Court June 12, Noreen Bachade, who owns Healthy Vibes at 21 Court St., claims that Baker’s executive order requiring the wearing of masks violates her civil rights. According to the complaint, she is seeking damages, including lawyer’s fees, court costs and any other damages the court thinks appropriate.

Massachusetts Department of Public Health Commissioner Dr. Monica Bharel and Massachusetts Department of Labor Standards Director Bill McKinney are also named in the suit.

On May 1, the Baker-Polito Administration ordered all residents older than 2 years old to use a face covering or mask in public places where maintaining proper social distancing measures to prevent the spread of COVID19 are not possible. This statewide order went into effect May 6 and applies to those working in businesses and those entering them like customers. Violators face $300.oo fines.

Bachade charges that the governor’s mask mandates violate her constitutional rights to privacy and free speech because it prohibits facial expression, a strong conveyor of communication. She also states that the mandate violates her constitutional rightsto make her own personal medical decisions and violates Massachusetts police power and the Massachusetts Declaration of Rights.

Bachade explained why she is taking legal action.

“Since the COVID 19 pandemic has begun, the government has taken some measures that were helpful in protecting the people, and other measures that were not helpful in protecting the people.

Many of the measures that were not helpful (in protecting the people) violated our unalienable rights, as found in the Constitution,” she wrote in a statement late last week.”

“When it comes to the subject of masks and whether they actually protect other peoples’ health, the government and the experts have been contradictory -numerous examples of which are explicitly noted in our complaint.

In our opinion, these contradictions show how the mask mandates are arbitrary rules that do not actually keep anyone safer from COVID 19.”

The complaint specifically takes issue with a number of apparent contradictions in the CDC’s guidelines, first warning people against wearing masks, then issuing guidelines to wear them.

Bachade compares COVID 19 deaths in the United States with other illnesses, such as heart disease and cancer, and concludes that the governor’s assertion that the disaster reaches the level of “unprecedented size and destructiveness” is false. Bachade notes that in 2017 heart disease killed 65,000 Americans, while COVID has killed 115,000 as of the complaint’s date. (The number is 131,413 as of July 2). The complaint further states that COVID 19 has impacted a tenth of a percent of the population of Massachusetts.

“There is a constitutional problem when the government imposes arbitrary rules that infringe freedom of choice.” Bachade writes in her statement. “If the government and the experts are permitted to contradict each other, then there is no lesser good in permitting people and private businesses to choose whether to wear masks, or enforce their own private policies. During this pandemic, I was fortunate enough to have had my business deemed an ‘essential business.’ My philosophy is: “From whom much is given, much is expected.’ Preserving constitutional rights for everyone – including those who might disagree with me – is my way of giving back to my community.”

The Awesome Catholic Green Scapular: Powerful for Conversions

This little ‘cloth medal’ was given to Sister Justine Bisqueyburu (1817-1903) ten years after the apparitions of St. Catherine Laboure received the Miraculous Medal as a precious gift for the Church to give to anyone who would like to save the soul of their loved one.  Miraculous cures have been attributed to it also.  Spectacular cures!

I am compelled to write about this!  It was an integral part of our nurses training.  I was educated by the same order of nuns to which both Sister Justine and Sister Catherine belonged.

A Prophecy of Mary Unrolls Before the Eyes In the South China Sea as a World, Sick with Covid, is Distracted From China’s Island Building

HAURIETIS AQUAS

Cardinal Vidal, in a 2014 letter to the Catholic Bishops of the Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) said one of the”secrets” of the alleged Lipa apparition as revealed to Carmelite nun Teresita Castillo was the invasion of the Philippines and the world by China.

“Pray hard for China’s dream is to invade the whole world” Vidal quoted from the notes of Castillo on the alleged apparition at the Carmelite convent in Lipa City in 1948, a year before the Communist triumph in China and Communist leader Mao Tse-tung’s official proclamation of the Peoples Republic of China.

Servant of God Julia Greeley, Born a Suffering Slave Child

“Julia Greeley, Denver’s Angel of Charity, was born into slavery at Hannibal, Missouri, sometime between 1833 and 1848. While she was still a young child, a cruel slave master, in the course of beating her mother, caught Julia’s right eye with his whip and destroyed it.” This photo of Julia Greeley is the only known one in existence.

This monstrous cruelty of the ‘slave master’ provides basis for the racism of our day. No doubt.

But … any one of us is capable of evil due to the ravages created in the soul of man by original sin.

There is a cure. It is in turning to God for help. Julia Greeley turned to the Sacred Heart of Jesus where she found love which consumed the lonesomeness, the sorrow, the despair … which had swept over her being at times.

The Servant of God, on the stairway to Sainthood in the Catholic Church, was a familiar sight on the streets of Denver in the late 1800 and early 1900’s. Wearing a floppy hat, oversized shoes, and dabbing her bad eye with a handkerchief, she was often seen pulling her red wagon of goods to deliver to the poor and homeless of the city. She had a particularly special devotion to the Sacred Heart, and every month would deliver on foot, images of the Sacred Heart and information about prayer to the firefighters throughout Denver.https://blackandindianmission.org/servant-god-julia-greeley

THE BOOK: The most thorough compilation of the facts of Julia Greeley’s life have been published in a new book by Father Blaine Burkey, O.F.M. Cap. The Book, In Service of the Sacred Heart: The Life and Virtues of Julia Greeley, recalls the memorable stories and events of this remarkable woman by those who know her best.

The book is now available for purchase in various ways:

  1. Pick up in person at a Denver Catholic book store or the Capuchin Provincial Offices (3613 Wyandot St.)
  2. Order by mail from the Julia Greeley Guild Immaculate Conception Cathedral, 1535 N. Logan St. Denver, CO 80203-1913 Enclose check for 20.00 This will cover the cost of the book, sales tax, and domestic shipping. juliagreeley.org official website of the Julia Greeley Guild

Trumps’ Trumpeters Sing

Freedom For Left But Not For Right

An army for Trump at Plymouth Rock

Where Pilgrims feet once trod,

With freshening psalms like ‘Freedom To Talk’

Not rule with an iron rod.

Across the street on Coles Hill Site

Where Pilgrims bones are laid

Rainbow colors rise so bright

Freedom for left but not for right

Governor Andrew Cuomo Wrong to Limit Worship Services Yet Condone Mass Protests, According to Federal Judge.

NEW YORK (VINnews) – After telling Thomas More Society attorneys in a June 18 hearing that he was “troubled by” the government’s responses, Senior U.S. District Judge Gary L. Sharpe issued a preliminary injunction on June 26, 2020, prohibiting Governor Cuomo, his Attorney General Letitia James, and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio from ordering or enforcing COVID-19 prompted restrictions on outdoor worship gatherings.

Thomas More Society Special Counsel Christopher Ferrara remarked, “We are pleased that Judge Sharpe was able to see through the sham of Governor Cuomo’s ‘Social Distancing Protocol’ which went right out the window as soon as he and Mayor de Blasio saw a mass protest movement they favored taking to the streets by the thousands. Suddenly, the limit on ‘mass gatherings’ was no longer necessary to ‘save lives.’ Yet they were continuing to ban high school graduations and other outdoor gatherings exceeding a mere 25 people. This decision is an important step toward inhibiting the suddenly emerging trend of exercising absolute monarchy on pretext of public health. What this kind of regine really mean in practice is freedom for me, but not for thee.”

Sharpe’s order noted that, “It is not the judiciary’s role to second guess the likes of Governor Cuomo or Mayor de Blasio when it comes to decisionsthey make in such troubling times, that is, until those decisions result in the curtailment of fundamental rights without compelling justification.”

In awarding the injunction, the court noted that “non essential businesses” that enjoy a 50% capacity limitation are not justifiably different than houses of worship.

Sharpe remarked that offices, retail stores, salons, and restaurants – all are permitted to open at 50% capacity indoors – all involve the congregation of people for a length of time. He stated: “These secular businesses/activities threaten defendants’ interest in slowing the spread of COVID 19 to a similar or greater degree than those of plaintiffs’ and demonstrate that the 25% indoor capacity limitation on houses of worship is underinclusive and triggers strict scrutiny review.”

The judge pointed out, “Another case of individualized exemption seems even more obvious.” Governor Cuomo has now specifically authorized outdoor, in person graduation ceremonies of no more than 150 people. This is an express exemption from the ten-or twenty five person outdoor limits that apply to other situations.” Yet, “There is nothing materially different about a graduation ceremony and a religious gathering such that defendants’ justifications for a difference in treatment can be found compelling.”

Sharpe took New York City to task, stating that de Blasio could have just as easily discouraged protests, short of condemning their message, in the name of public health and exercised discretion to suspend enforcement for public safety reasons instead of encouraging what they knew was a flagrant disregard of the outdoor limits and social distancing rules.” wrote Sharpe They could have also been silent. But by acting as they did, Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio sent a clear message that mass protests are deserving of preferential treatment.”

As a result of the federal order, Governor Cuomo, Attorney General James, and Mayor de Blasio are “enjoined and restrained from enforcing any indoor gathering limitations” against the involved houses of worship “greater than imposed for Phase 2 industries.”, provided that participants follow the prescribed social distancing. They are also forbidden from “enforcing any limitation for outdoor gatherings provided that participants in such gatherings follow social distancing requirements as set forth in the applicable executive orders and guidance.”

Cuomo, James, and de Blasio were sued by two Catholic priests from upstate New York and a trio of Orhodox Jewish congregants from Brooklyn for violations of their civil rights by prejudicial orders and selective enforcement. The federal lawsuit, filed June 10, 2020, in United States District Court for the Northern District of New York, charged the governor, attorney general, and mayor with violating the plaintiffs ‘rights to free exercise of religion, freedom of speech, assembly and expressive association, and due process, under the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. Governor Cuomo was also accused of violatingNew York state law and the New York State Constitution.

Ferrara explained the lawsuit: “In an unprecedented abuse of power, Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio have exploited the COVID-19 pandemic to create, over the past three months, a veritable dictatorship by means of a complex web of executive orders. The orders have imposed and selectively enforced ‘social distancing’ under a ‘lockdown of virtually every aspect of life for New York State residents on the pretext of ‘public health,’ but with numerous exceptions. The permissible activities, not based on the science of viral contagion, but rather determined according to personal value judgments, have included mass demonstrations of thousands of people – gatherings of which the governor and mayor have approved and the mayor participated in. Cuomo and de Blasio, along with James, have enforced the gubernatorial ‘lockdown’ by threat of criminal prosecution and actual prosecution, including $1,000 fines for the recently created offense of violating Cuomo’s ‘Social distancing Protocol.”

Ferrara added, “These mass protest gatherings, taking place during the COVID 19 stay-at-home lockdown orders, have been not only allowed but praised by both the Governor of New York and Mayor of New York city, even though massive property damage and death have resulted. This, when the governments primary purpose is to protect the people it governs.”

General Chi’s Nasty Wuhan Soup: A Recipe for BioWar?

Here is a bomb of plans by China to bring to fruition the words of Our Lady of Lipa, which were forbidden for the people to hear by deceitful clerics. What was left after the burning of the messages, was given by Cardinal Ricardo Vidal , to the Philippine Daily Inquirer 13 July 2014: Pray hard for China’s dream is to invade the whole world.”

J.R. Nyquist Blog

Only by using non-destructive weapons that can kill many people will we be able to reserve America for ourselves. There has been rapid development of modern biological technology, and new bio-weapons have been invented one after another. Of course, we have not been idle…. We are capable of achieving our purpose of ‘cleaning up’ America all of a sudden.

General Chi Haotian

💀

In a secret speech given to high-level Party cadres nearly two decades ago, Chinese Defense Minister, Gen. Chi Haotian, explained a long- range plan for ensuring a Chinese national renaissance. He said there were three vital issues that must be grasped. The first was the issue of living space — because China is severely overpopulated and China’s environment is deteriorating. The second issue, therefore, is that the Communist Party must teach the Chinese people to “go out.” By this Gen. Chi meant the conquest of new lands…

The Left is working for a Coup d’etat in the USA

A very short read which highlights the fact that a revolution is about to explode in America the Beautiful. May God shed His grace on us now! Russia, the seed bed of Communism must be converted to God … He asked it through Our Lady of Fatima. The Pope must do it. Six have snubbed their noses at Our Lady. God has blessed America with Donald Trump, a Godly man and they are actually talking about assassination!! Everybody please pray to Our Lady for Donald Trump and the First Lady’s safety.

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The Left has always been inspired by the thought of murdering their opponents. From the revolts in the Commune of Paris in the mid 19th century — whence comes the name, Communists — to the murder of 60 millions souls by the Marxists of Russia, China, Cambodia etc., in the 20th century.

Now in the U.S.A it has become clear that the riots have nothing to do with George Floyd, but everything to do about Marxist revolution. The Left sees black people and leftist dupes as able and controllable puppents to incite race warfare. The burning, destruction and murder of whites who stand against them. They want Trump gone, but not because they hate Trump, because they want a Soviet Union of the United States.

This goes hand in hand with the long term Masonic agenda, which has always supported Marxism.

Will the mayhem burn itself…
