    This is going on memory from what I read in, and understood of, Desmond Birch's book on the subject.

    Both my memory and comprehension might not be reliable. Perhaps, best to read Birch.

    I have his book. Haven’t looked at it in awhile. Will look again. I do remember that Fatima is conditional. For example, Our Lady mentions that if her requests were not heeded, Russia will spread her errors throughout the world. So I really feel that our lamps must be kept lit.
    Today in his homily, Father talked about death. He mentioned that we never know when God will come for us. I am astounded at that. I haven’t heard that kind of homily since I was a teenager. In fact, when I was a teen, our pastor used to say that we could get killed in a car accident right after leaving Mass. Today, Father said much the same thing. He said he was taking his elderly Mom home after Mass and at any time, they could be in an accident. He talked about what death means for a Christian. We are so blessed to be in a state of grace. I’m rambling.

    World War Three alert as Taiwan vows to take on China

    Taiwan’s president has vowed to take military action against China if it tries to force the self-ruling island to ‘reunify’ with the mainland.

    Tsai Ing-wen said her government will ‘continue to bolster our national defence’ after Beijing sent a record 149 warplanes into Taiwan’s air defence zone, while threats of ‘World War Three’ appeared in a state-backed newspaper.

    This article is written by Elon Musk but you can find others about this topic, President Biden's nomination of Saule Omarova as head of the OCC.

    Here is an excerpt from the article:

    Senator Pat Toomey, a leading member of the Senate Banking Committee, has already said he would oppose Omarova leading the OCC.

    ‘Madam. Omarova has called for “radical reshaping of the basic architecture and dynamics of modern finance,” including the nationalization of retail banking and the granting of credit by the Federal Reserve. She has also advocated for ‘finishing effectively'[ing] banking as we know it.”

    “In light of these and other far-left ideas, I have serious reservations about her nomination,” Toomey said in a statement.

    The American Bankers Association, a Washington-based trade group that lobbies on behalf of financial institutions, also expressed concern over Biden’s choice

    “We are deeply concerned about her ideas for a fundamental restructuring of the country’s banking system, which remains the most diverse and competitive in the world. Her proposals to effectively nationalize US community banks, end risk-based regulation and eliminate the dual banking system are particularly troubling,” said ABA president and CEO Rob Nichols.

    House Financial Services Committee member Patrick McHenry (R-NC) GOP representative said Omarova would prioritize installing a progressive agenda over regulating banks.

    Senator Elizabeth Warren praised Omarova’s nomination.

    She will have to testify before the Senate Banking Committee. Democratic Chairman Sen. Sherrod Brown (left) praised her nomination, while Republican ranking member Sen. Pat Toomey (right) expressed concern

    “President Biden once again calms his radical base by nominating Saule Omarova as head of the OCC,” McHenry said in a statement. “I am concerned that Professor Omarova will prioritize a progressive social agenda over the core task of the OCC: overseeing and managing risk in our financial system.”

    Even her potential future boss, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, has reservations about Biden’s choice, according to sources cited in a scathing op-ed criticizing Omarova’s nomination by the Wall Street Journal editorial board.

    Biden nominating Omarova could be an offer to placate progressives who have resisted reports he is considering reappointing Fed Chair Jerome Powell for a second term. Powell’s term ends in February, but the White House has not yet formally submitted a choice for the role.

    Elizabeth Warren, who this week called Powell a “dangerous man” and announced her intention to oppose his reappointment, praised Biden’s decision about Omarova.

    "Saule Omarova’s appointment to lead the US currency controller is great news. She is an excellent choice to oversee and regulate the operations of our nation’s largest banks and I have no doubt that she will be a fearless consumer champion,” Warren wrote on Facebook.

    And the chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, called on his fellow committee members to support Omarova.

    “Her experience as a policymaker, in the private sector and in academia will enable her to work with stakeholders across our financial system to make sure the economy works for all and to protect our economic recovery from the risky activities by Wall Street and other bad actors,” Brown said.

    “I call on my colleagues from the Banking and Housing Commission to support this historic candidate in this position that is crucial to our economy.”

    To all the Yanks hoping to fly in the coming week:

    This is in addition to the 2,000 flights cancelled by Southwestern Airlines after their employees went on strike due to mandatory vaccine requirements. Southwestern is saying the cancellations are due to bad weather in Florida, although other airlines aren't showing that many cancellations to Florida.

    For sure. I think that the push to put tech in contact with men and now kids is about the machine (AI) learning things from us in order to manipulate, control and harm us. Our smartphones and PCs and all of our digital footprints out there have recorded so much data about us - and now these robots are collecting data from kids. There could easily be a mic, cameras and other sensors in these devices too - how long before they get mean with kids or start telling them things when mom and dad are out of the room? The possibilities for harm are huge.

    And then there is this angle too

    Yes. The reports suggest that he is responding to IV antibiotics. I am praying for him even though I don't trust him with a 10-foot pole.
