The Clintons Dissed Mother (Now Saint) Teresa of Calcutta?

Mother Teresa, ‘Saint of the gutters’, was truly canonized a saint yesterday by the Roman Catholic Church in Rome.


"22 Years Ago, The Clintons Pulled A Colin Kaepernick On Mother Teresa"

"It’s hard to overstate the symbolic power of sitting down. Today, a football player’s refusal to stand for the National Anthem has garnered headline upon headline. Twenty-two years ago, a seated couple protested one of the world’s most beloved figures.

"In a truly iconic American scene that still captures the attention—and confusion—of the Washington elite, then-President Bill Clinton and his wife, Hillary, sat in stunned silence amid a standing ovation that followed Mother Teresa’s address at the National Prayer Breakfast.

"The applause lasted a solid five minutes after Mother Teresa’s address. Long before the days of “virtue-signaling,” however, the Clintons were sending a message of dissent loud and clear to the woman now officially canonized a saint in the Catholic Church for her 'heroic virtue.'

"The Clintons’ seated dissent had everything to do with Mother Teresa’s courageous stand for the sanctity of life, which echoed her earlier comments in her 1979 Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech.

“'But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself.

'And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even His life to love us. So, the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love, that is, to give until it hurts her plans, or her free time, to respect the life of her child. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it hurts.

'By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems.

'And, by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble. So abortion just leads to more abortion.

'Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want,' she said. 'This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.'”

Not only did the Clintons not stand, they refused to applaud. Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan wrote her observations of the day:
"Well, silence. Cool deep silence in the cool round cavern for just about 1.3 seconds. And then applause started on the right hand side of the room, and spread, and deepened, and now the room was swept with people applauding, and they would not stop for what I believe was five or six minutes. As they clapped they began to stand, in another wave from the right of the room to the center and the left.

"But not everyone applauded. The president and first lady, seated within a few feet of Mother Teresa on the dais, were not applauding. Nor were the vice president and Mrs. Gore. They looked like seated statues at Madame Tussaud’s. They glistened in the lights and moved not a muscle, looking at the speaker in a determinedly semi-pleasant way.
Hillary and Bill, that's just wrong. By your action long ago, you told us all we need to know about you both. You can't really claim to follow Jesus Christ, either, not that you or your supporters care if you are or not. Such a sad, cold statement you both made then, and still stand by now.

And while we're on the subject, here's more folks ought to know about...

"Hillary Clinton, rarely seen, rarely heard" by the alt-left Politico and the scathing article by the still-ever-loyal "Clinton-court-gazette" New York Times: "Where Has Hillary Clinton Been? Ask the Ultrarich".

Seriously, go read how the press was quarantined in basements, remote guesthouses, "among the parked cars 400 yards away" [four whole football fields, folks] and couldn't ever hear a word of what HRC said to all the rich and famous celebrities she schmoozed all summer long.

And then tell me how you've got a problem with Trump being so rich and sheltered and elite and out-of-touch? THAT is "rich!"

More on how to count the ways Hillary has ditched the press for months and has not had a bona fide press conference in some-count-em!- 240 days...

...and "I don't want to be partisan here. But please, tell me how you get out of a business recession by raising business taxes and regulations?"

...and "Our country can survive the occasional infelicities and improprieties of Donald Trump. But it cannot survive losing the Supreme Court to liberals and allowing them to wreck our sacred republic. It would reshape the country for decades."

...and how "the 13 Blackberrys and 3 iPads she used as secretary of state are missing..."

...and this riff by Hugh Hewitt in that latest link is worth chewing on:

"It's hard to read [the NYT Ultrarich] story without thinking back on the oily glory days of the first Clinton era, when the Lincoln Bedroom was rented out and Al Gore cited 'no controlling legal authority' that prohibited his various fundraising schemes. The Times piece brings it all rushing back — all the beautiful people in the Hamptons and on Martha's Vineyard, come out from the city or Hollywood to mix with their aging counterparts in support of their favorite pols ever. There are some new twists, however. Now it costs $2,700 for the excitement of having your son or daughter (or more likely grandchild) ask Clinton a question.

"But only if they are under 16. Couldn't risk a smart advanced placement student asking about Syria or Libya, now.

"Read it all. I will, over the air, because this isn't your mother's or father's Democratic Party...Donald Trump is a lot of things, but the money he inherited and grew was his own. Whatever his failings — and be assured everyone on the island can recite them by heart, even as they are ignorant of Clinton's four-year run of disasters as secretary of state — Trump is resonating with the people for whom there aren't ever any vacations and those for whom a week at the shore or the lake is an exhausted respite from a grind that eight years of President Obama has only made saving for more arduous by a lot."

...and a 19-year-old Democrat who "lost faith in Obama" and apparently doesn't think Hillary is the answer either:
" some point during his presidency, I lost the president I acclaimed to a broken political machine. Rather than transcending the unscrupulous system, he thought he could broker it. As a result, he sunk into the mud....Our next truly great leader will rise above the times and exhibit another way of governing — a way that holds true to the high ground and begins to mend division. We wait for that leader." Meaning, s/he ain't here yet, folks.
...and this:
"Given that the former secretary of state used her office to enrich herself and her husband; given that she so willfully compromised national security by setting up her own private email server in order to avoid congressional and public oversight; given that she has repeatedly lied about these actions; given that she lied to the mothers and fathers of the men killed by terrorists in Benghazi; and given that she has a long history of lying (a New York Times columnist called her a "congenital liar" in the 1990s), the notion of Clinton as a model for America's girls and young women is nothing, if not depressing."
I know at least the first of the following videos has been widely ridiculed by all Hillary supporters, but to date and to my knowledge, it has not been medically debunked by any medical experts. Turn the sound down on all but the last one. My own brother had Grand Mal epilepsy which was incapacitating, not at all like this Jacksonian-seizure-like behavior. But then watch the second video. Something was clearly wrong with Hillary that shouldn't have been. And the photo of the injector pen, in video #2, was clearly in the hands of that same African-American "aide" as the Clintons walked from backstage at the DNC to the stage for her to accept the nomination.

The last video is posted only as a more recent coughing fit example. Personally, I wouldn't call this a "massive" coughing fit, and I don't make much of her coughing no matter how prevalent it seems. She might have a cold or some allergy symptoms, and she's been talking probably non-stop. I myself have had episodes while suffering from a head cold and talking on the phone where suddenly, the mucous surrounding my voicebox just became so scratchy, dry and smothering that I couldn't speak a word and had to end the phone conversation with tears in my eyes from the pain and a squeaky, barely audible promise to call back, and after hanging up, I had truly massive hacking-fits and then drank about a gallon of water pronto.

Clinton's doctor and her official medical history report say she is on Coumadin, but simple dry coughing is NOT considered a side effect of that medication. She doesn't have high blood pressure either and isn't on Lisinopril as a result (that medication usually does cause a dry cough). The other meds she takes are Armour Thyroid and unnamed antihistamines for allergies. Armour Thyroid is not listed as having coughing as a side effect, though it is slightly possible: "Percentage of ARMOUR THYROID patients where COUGH is a reported side effect: 5.5866%." Antihistamines? Harvard says that those will only help stop a cough "...if hay fever or allergies are the cause of the congestion and cough." So it's a non-issue for me.

(last one thanks to RealClearPolitics for the video)

I just close with one question, though: Does anyone really think that Hillary Clinton is a person who has ever, even once in her life, been "willing to give until it hurts"?

I don't think she is. I think she has been a taker, all her life. And especially now.

I am a woman. A middle-aged, lower middle-class, formerly upper-middle class, educated, working woman, whose mother was an even better-educated, working woman.

I would not be voting for Hillary Rodham Clinton if you threatened me with loss of life or paid me a bajillion dollars. And were my mom alive, she wouldn't be voting for her either. I will have to hold my nose to vote, but I will do so in order to keep Hillary Clinton from becoming President.

And I think there are boatloads more women like my mom was and like I am, than the Eastern seaboard and West Coast know or care to know about. And we're not the ones the pollsters get to or want to get to.

Saint Teresa of Calcutta, pray for us, and for Hillary Clinton. (I'm pretty sure you already are, on both counts!) I pray for her metanoia, and if that prayer is not answered, I pray she never is elected President of these United States.

"I would now like to say a special word to women who have had an abortion...[many are] aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and [do] not doubt that it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace...You will come to understand that nothing is definitively lost and you will also be able to ask forgiveness from your child..."

The writings expressed herein are protected expression by virtue of the First Amendment of the United States of America and by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in particular Articles 18 and 19, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948:

1) The First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

"The Free Exercise Clause reserves the right of American citizens to accept any religious belief and engage in religious rituals. The wording in the free-exercise clauses of state constitutions that religious “[o]pinion, expression of opinion, and practice were all expressly protected” by the Free Exercise Clause.[1] The clause protects not just religious beliefs but actions made on behalf of those beliefs. More importantly, the wording of state constitutions suggest that “free exercise envisions religiously compelled exemptions from at least some generally applicable laws.”[2] The Free Exercise Clause not only protects religious belief and expression; it also seems to allow for violation of laws, as long as that violation is made for religious reasons."

2) Article 18 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948, states: "Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance."

3) Article 19 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."
