The Archbishop for Military Services Timothy P. Broglio released a statement on Tuesday supporting Catholic troops who do not want to be vaccinated and want a religious exemption.

He says Catholic U.S. troops should be allowed to refuse the COVID vaccine based solely on conscientious objection regardless of whether abortion-related tissue was used in its creation or testing.

Undercover video from Project Veritas recently exposed the effort by Pfizer to cover up the fact that ‘human fetal tissue’ was used in making the COVID vaccine (SEE BELOW).

The Archbishop’s complete statement is below:

ARCHDIOCESE FOR THE MILITARY SERVICES, USA The Most Reverend Timothy P. Broglio
Statement on Coronavirus Vaccines and the Sanctity of Conscience
Earlier this year, I affirmed that the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA (AMS), clearly encourages the faithful entrusted to her care to follow the guidance of the Holy See and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) with regard to COVID-19 vaccines.1
The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which is the Church’s highest doctrinal authority, speaking for the Bishop of Rome, has made clear its position on the vaccines available to mitigate the Coronavirus pandemic. The USCCB Committees on Doctrine and on Pro-Life Activities have stated that it is morally permissible to receive the COVID-19 vaccinations currently available in the United States.2

On 24 August 2021, the Secretary of Defense issued a memorandum directing the mandatory vaccination of all services members against COVID-19. Since then, some service members have refused to take the vaccine and have requested a religious accommodation through the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

This circumstance raises the question of whether the vaccine’s moral permissibility precludes an individual from forming a sincerely held religious belief that receiving the vaccine would violate his conscience. It does not.

The Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines were tested using an abortion- derived cell line. That type of a link has been for centuries considered remote material cooperation with evil and is never sinful. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine was developed, tested, and is produced, with abortion-derived cell lines. That vaccine is, therefore, more problematic. If it were the only vaccine available, it would be morally permissible, but the faithful Catholic is to make known his or her preference for a more morally acceptable treatment.

“No one should be forced to receive a Covid vaccine if it would violate the sanctity of his or her conscience.”

ABORTED FETAL TISSUE USED IN VACCINE:

Project Veritas released a video in their 5-part series about the covid vaccine. The whistleblower in the video below tells of a cover-up by Pfizer that they used human fetal tissue in lab testing of the COVID vaccine.

Melissa Strickler leaked internal emails that show corporate executives telling staff to be secretive about using human fetal tissue in laboratory testing of the COVID vaccine.

Strickler says that Pfizer is trying to cover up this information because people who want religious exemptions will have the fetal tissue issue to help get that exemption from getting the COVID vaccine.

The key evidence presented is from emails and documents where Vanessa Gelman and Philip Dormitzer mention human fetal cells “derived from an aborted fetus.”

-Vanessa Gelman, Pfizer Senior Director of Worldwide Research: “From the perspective of corporate affairs, we want to avoid having the information on fetal cells floating out there…The risk of communicating this right now outweighs any potential benefit we could see, particularly with general members of the public who may take this information and use it in ways we may not want out there. We have not received any questions from policymakers or media on this issue in the last few weeks, so we want to avoid raising this if possible.”

-Vanessa Gelman: “We have been trying as much as possible to not mention the fetal cell lines…One or more cell lines with an origin that can be traced back to human fetal tissue has been used in laboratory tests associated with the vaccine program.”

-Philip Dormitzer, Pfizer Chief Scientific Officer: “HEK293T cells, used for the IVE assay, are ultimately derived from an aborted fetus. On the other hand, the Vatican doctrinal committee has confirmed that they consider it acceptable for Pro-Life believers to be immunized. Pfizer’s official statement couches the answer well and is what should be provided in response to an outside inquiry.”

Axios reporter walks back claim that Fox News joined Trump’s social media platform

Published

on

In a since-deleted tweet, Axios reporter Dan Primack reported a would-be scoop on Tuesday about the biggest name in conservative media, Fox News, joining the new social media platform created by the biggest name in conservative politics, Donald Trump:

“Fox News today became one of the biggest brands to join Truth Social.

“So far, Truth has been promoting accounts like Fox and the NFL and NASA, but most of them are just bots that are scraping their Twitter feeds. Fox Sports continues to be a bot.”

On Thursday, Primack walked the scoop back, reporting in a story headlined “Fox News saya it didn’t authorize Truth Social account” that a Fox News spokesperson told Axios, “We are not on Truth Social.”

In the joint-bylined story, Primack explained that shares of the company taking Truth Social public, Trump SPAC Digital World Acquisition, rose “after an Axios reporter tweeted about the mere existence of the verified account.”

Primack explained that his Tuesday tweet “was prompted not only by the verification symbol on a Truth Social account bearing Fox News’ name and logo, but also by a message from Truth Social CEO Devin Nunes that read: ‘Great to have RSS feed for @FoxNews now LIVE here on TRUTH! This adds to @OAN and @NewsMax.'” 

The stock price of Trump SPAC Digital World Acquisition rose 7% on Tuesday the same day of the erroneous report that Fox News had joined Truth Social. On Thursday, its stock dropped 2.2% following news that Elon Musk had offered to buy Twitter.

Primack’s story explained that “real-looking accounts for numerous big media and sports brands — including Fox Sports, TMZ, NFL, NASA and NASCAR — have existed on Truth Social for months, and often are promoted to new users” but are not verified and have “a small ‘BOT’ disclaimer on their accounts.”

According to Primack, the disclaimer reads, “This account is an RSS feed aggregating bot, and is not managed by or affiliated with the referenced news outlet.”

However, there is not a “BOT” disclaimer on the Fox News account, he reported.

Trump Media and Technology Group told Just the News on Thursday: “Truth Social is committed to preventing impersonator accounts, so we verify official RSS feeds run by well-known content creators. There is no other honest way to interpret this basic service we provide for our users.”

Primack stood by his reporting in a statement to Just the News on Thursday. “The real issue is the verified account, which Truth displays differently than its ‘bot’ accounts (TMZ, Fox Sports, NFL, etc.),” he said. “That implies authorization, based on the language on the bot accounts. No such authorization was given.”

Multiple media outlets picked up the story, including The Hill, the U.K. Independent, Business Insider, and the Washington Examiner.

Border Security

TX Gov Greg Abbott Reaches Historical Agreement with Nuevo Leon, Mexico Gov Garcia to Enhance Border Security [VIDEO]

Published

on

Governor Greg Abbot (TX) is working with Nuevo Leon, Mexico, Governor Garcia to secure the border while Biden Admin does nothing.

With Title 42 being repealed and massive waves of illegal immigrants being expected to flood the border, Greg Abbott is taking more and more steps to do what the Biden Administration refuses to: Protect our border.

Governor Gregg Abbott:

“Biden must assert the national security authority that comes with being commander in chief of the United States. Until then, Texas will use its own strategies to secure the border and continue to negotiate with Mexico to seek solutions.”

Governor Abbott is negotiating with the Governor Garcia of Nuevo Leon, Mexico, to tighten border security on both sides and to keep illegals out of our country. This comes a week after his decision to start busing illegal aliens to D.C.

These actions serve to protect our border while also raising awareness of the issue which Biden most consistently neglects–national security. Biden is pursuing an open border policy in rescinding Title 42, and this will disproportionately harm Texas, which shares the largest swathe of border with Mexico.

Abbott is doing what he can in negotiations with Mexico to limit the number of migrants who will be pouring over in May, however without a firm stance by the US Federal Government, and without the money, manpower, and other resources necessary to patrol and defend the border, it may not be enough.

Elon Musk DESTROYS Saudi Prince Trying To Block Him From Hostile Takeover Of Twitter: “What Are The Kingdom’s Views On Journalistic Freedom Of Speech?’

Published

on

Earlier today, news broke that business titan Elon Musk offered to take over Twitter.  His offer was 38% higher than the company’s current valuation in the stock market.

Rumors have circulated over the past two weeks that Musk is planning a hostile takeover of Twitter after buying a 9.2% share in the company and rejecting a seat on its board.  Musk’s offer to buy Twitter out entirely only further confirms these rumors.

Today, Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, who at one point owned a 5.2% stake in Twitter, rejected Musk’s offer, saying it was insufficient.

Musk responded shortly after, indirectly criticizing Saudi Arabia’s repressive measures against free speech and  freedom of the press.

The Daily Mail Reports–

“Elon Musk has fired back at a Saudi Arabian shareholder of Twitter who tried to block his $41 billion hostile takeover plan, questioning whether royalty in the notoriously repressive state should exercise control over the social media platform.

In a tweet, Musk responded harshly to Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, who claimed to be ‘one of the largest’ Twitter shareholders and said he would ‘reject’ Musk’s proposal to take the company private, calling the offer insufficient.

‘How much of Twitter does the Kingdom own, directly & indirectly? What are the Kingdom’s views on journalistic freedom of speech?’ Musk asked bin Talal.

Bin Talal’s true ownership stake in Twitter is unclear. Though the prince shared a screenshot boasting of his 5.2 percent stake in 2015, his investment firm later reduced its stake below 5 percent, and has not had to report any further transactions, regulatory filings show.

Bin Talal is a cousin to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, whom the CIA concluded ordered the grisly assassination of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018. The Saudi government has long ranked near the worst in the world for press freedom.”

Members of Twitter’s board have already started plotting against Musk’s planned hostile takeover.  Twitter’s board reportedly met Thursday afternoon and hatched a plan to dilute Twitter’s stock by introducing a diluge of new shares, also called a ‘poison-pill’ provision.
