Headlines of interest, mid to late February, 2016…

The headlines of late have drawn many comparisons to the themes of Dan Brown novels, particularly those regarding the bizarre circumstances of the death of SCOTUS Justice Scalia (see further down our ticker for those stories). A comparison more eerily ominous, by our reckoning, is that relating to the Zika outbreak and the implications this has upon global depopulation strategies, which are the over-arching concerns of Dan Brown’s 2013 novel Inferno – also in the works as a motion picture (IMBd) scheduled for release later this year…

WHO –  Zika situation report – 26 February 2016

Washington Post – U.S. details 9 Zika pregnancies: 2 abortions, 2 miscarriages, 1 baby with ‘severe microcephaly’

APPope suggests contraception can be condoned in Zika crisis

Religion News ServiceThe real surprise in Pope Francis’ Zika virus remarks (COMMENTARY)

He seemed to imply Thursday (Feb. 18) that using contraception could, if trying to stop the spread of Zika, be the lesser of two evils…

What was surprising in Francis’ remarks, however, was his incredibly strong language about abortion…

“Abortion is not the lesser of two evils. It is a crime. It is to kill someone in order to save another. This is what the Mafia does. It is a crime, an absolute evil. … Don’t confuse the evil of avoiding pregnancy by itself, with abortion.”

Has the Mafia sent Francis a message in the season of Lent?…

Hence a bloody reminder of the signature infamy of the Bush legacies. Likewise, though the Libyan tragedy will go down as the signature ignominy of Obama’s foreign policy legacy, let the record show who pressured him into it, lest this legacy of ashes continues on into the next term of POTUS…
