Pope Prays and Affirms Communion for Biden--While Private Jets Swarm Glasgow

While private jets swarm Glasgow, bringing the wise men and women together to solve the "climate change" crisis, the Pope prayed for their success while urging  President Joe Biden---against the wishes of many leaders in his church--to continue receiving Communion.

Charles Spurgeon once said of hypocrisy: "Sincerity makes the very least person to be of more value than the most talented hypocrite." 

At many levels, this globalist gathering is the profile of hypocrisy.

Be informed, not misled.

Climate change hypocrisy

Just as the private jets of the global elites swarm to Davos, Switzerland every year for the World's Economic Forum, so too did they descend on Glasgow for this week's COP26 climate conference.

About 400 private jets disgorged their cargo of world leaders and business executives for the event. In doing so, they dumped thousands of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere in their journey to eliminate what they say is causing the earth to warm at a catastrophic rate. 

President Biden's private ride---Air Force One, a heavily modified Boeing 747-200--- is preceded by his entourage and 85-vehicle motorcade to carry him around the city is hardly an example of someone who wants to get rid of C02.

And he's not alone on the tarmac.

France, Germany, Japan, India, Australia, Israel, and a list of other super-jets have arrived to solve the climate crisis.

John Kerry, the president says, is leading the US's global warming efforts. It isn't a secret that Kerry practically lives on his private jet.

When the press asked John Kerry about the hypocrisy of flying to Iceland in his private jet in 2019 to receive an award for his work on climate change, he defended himself by saying it's "the only choice  for somebody like me."

Those who study such things say "the average private jet"---not Air Force One---but the smaller ones, emit two tons of CO2 for every hour in flight.

Matt Finch of the Transport and Environment campaign group says, "It can't be stressed enough how bad private jets are for the environment, it's the worst way to travel by miles."

And he notes, "Private jets are very prestigious but it is difficult to avoid the hypocrisy of using one while claiming to be fighting climate change."

I'm not a scientist, nor do I claim to be, but I know there are hundreds, if not several thousand highly respected scientists who disagree with the notion that CO2 creates global warming--climate change--climate crisis.

They have been silenced, as powerful leaders in their countries have kept their work from being peer-reviewed, consequently keeping it from being published in scientific journals, thus keeping it out of any news coverage. And keeping the global public uninformed.

Ironically, those who claim to be "following the science" are apparently no more doing so than Dr. Fauci and his "gain of function" lab testing that he had never done until he was exposed by the facts.

When President Trump withdrew the US from the Paris Climate Accords, Obama, Biden, the press, and the rest of the left condemned him severely claiming he was going to burn up the planet.

Trump explained at the time that the US was already doing the right thing and were reducing CO2 emissions. And that the Paris Accord was a power and money grab. And it would destroy our own economy. And it isn't the solution.

As it turns out, the US has been leading in reduced emissions more than any other country in the world.

In the last 10 years, the emissions reduction in the United States has been the largest in the history of energy.

We've reduced emissions more than the next 12 emissions-reducing countries combined.

This, while China, for example, has increased its carbon dioxide output by more than 8% during the same period.

Yesterday, leaders of the world's largest economies made a compromised commitment to "reach carbon neutrality by or around mid-century."

This gives them 30 years to continue what many see as the greatest forced transfer of global wealth in human history. And the biggest loser is the United States because we are the richest, and presently the dumbest---and are leading in carbon dioxide reduction.

Developing nations are demanding more than $1 trillion per year from the West to combat climate change. By the time the leaders of these developing countries "disperse" the trillion dollars through their personal and family bank accounts in Switzerland and elsewhere, there won't be enough left to put a solar panel on the roof of their mansion.

I've been there, and have seen how it works.

Religious hypocrisy. 

Pope Francis offered prayers yesterday for the success of the Climate Change Conference.

Following his weekly Angelus prayer in St. Peter's Square, he said, "Let us pray so that the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor be heard, that this meeting might provide efficacious responses, offering concrete hope to future generations."

He also announced the inauguration of a photographic exhibition in St. Peter's Square titled, "Emotions to generate change"--pushing the issue of care for creation at the Glasgow conference.

Speaking of "emotions to generate change," the Pope's personal meeting with President Biden on Saturday generated a great deal of emotion.

On Saturday President Biden received Communion at St. Patrick's Church in Rome, a day after saying Pope Francis told him he should partake in the sacrament.

The president's support for abortion has put him at odds with many US bishops, some of whom have suggested he should be denied Communion.

After leaving the Vatican, the president was asked if the issue of abortion came up in his meeting with Francis.

He said it didn't, but he said Francis said he was "happy I am a Catholic," and we had a "wonderful meeting," the Pope "blessed my rosary" and the "Pope told me to continue partaking of Communion."

As you likely know, Biden's pro-abortion stance and his commitment to redefining marriage have been a very divisive issue within the Catholic Church.

A number of the bishops have been calling for Biden to be denied the Eucharist because of his pro-abortion beliefs that are in stark contrast to the Church's official pro-life position.

Judy Brown, the president and co-founder of the American Life League, the nation's oldest grassroots pro-life educational and advocacy organization, said in a statement this week, "Joe Biden excommunicated himself almost 50 years ago."

Brown, who served as a three-time appointee to the Pontifical Academy for Life, disagrees with the Vatican's point of view concerning pro-abortion politicians.

She says, "Pope Francis needs to hold Biden accountable and demand he spends every moment he has left on this earth publicly repenting and atoning for the evil of abortion he has empowered. Joe Biden is no more Catholic than is Lucifer."


Democrat Adlai Stevenson once said, "A hypocrite is the kind of politician who would cut down a redwood tree, then mount the stump and make a speech for conservation."

Leo Tolstoy made this observation of hypocrisy: 'I sit on a man's back, choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means---except by getting off his back."

Teddy Roosevelt never met Joe Biden or the Pope but said, "Avoid the base hypocrisy of condemning in one man what you pass over in silence when committed by another."

Hypocrisy was high on the "don't do" teaching of Jesus. In Matthew 23:27 Jesus said:

"Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within they are full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness."

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.
