Report No. 1
Germany's 'Bishop of
Bling' steps down.
Germany's so called 'Bishop of Bling'
has been permanently removed from his diocese in Limburg by the Vatican.
Tebartz-van Elst was suspended in October for spending 31 million euros
on renovating his official residence.
The head of Germany's
Catholic Church Cardinal Reinhard Marx said lessons from the cleric's
lavish spending had been learnt.
"One thing is clear, we will
make a joint effort to considerably increase the level of transparency
and supervision of church finances," said Marx.
In a statement, the Vatican said the Bishop could no longer carry out a
'fruitful exercise' of his ministry. Something which struck a cord in
The Vatican has said the Bishop will be moved elsewhere. Since coming
to power Pope Francis has
urged Church officials to live simpler lives and get closer to the poor.
(a) No lesson will be learned until God
teaches it with an iron rod; (b) Why isn't Bergoglio correcting in one
fell swoop similar abuses that have ocurred continuosly for 1600 years
by converting to cash what they have stolen from the faithful and
helping the poor? Someone should point out to him the great many
photo-op's he would have then!

Shale may offer long-term home for nuclear waste. (1)
About 77,000 tons of spent nuclear
fuel currently sit in temporary above-ground storage facilities, and it
will remain dangerous for tens or
hundreds of thousands of years or longer.
Experts say that since the U.S. government abandoned plans to develop a
long-term nuclear-waste storage site at Yucca Mountain in Nevada in
2009, finding new long-term storage sites must be a priority. Shale deep under the Earth's
surface could be a solution. France, Switzerland, and Belgium
already have plans to use shale repositories to store nuclear waste
Shale, the source of the U.S.
current natural gas boom, could help solve another energy problem:
what to do with radioactive waste from nuclear power plants. The unique
properties of the sedimentary rock and related clay-rich rocks make it
ideal for storing the potentially dangerous spent fuel for millennia,
according to a geologist studying possible storage sites who made a
presentation here today.
Not only they are ignoring the serious
geological threat cause by fracking (extracting natural gas from deep
under the Earth shale) now they want to store nuclear waste in the
space that becomes available when the gas is extracted.
In reality they do not have time to implement it but the fools had not
even considered the consequences of a "Nuclear Earthquake". The
earthquake generated by the fracking operations and the nuclear fall
out from the nuclear waste "safely" store in the shale.
Report No. 3
Stolen babies, stolen lives, Spanish justice served cold. (1)
Stolen from their mothers at
birth, sold to be brought up by another. We meet Juani and
Paloma, two Spanish women caught up in Spain’s scandal of stolen
babies. They're among many struggling to come to terms with crimes done
to them and their biological parents decades ago.
Advocates say there were
thousands of false adoptions, beginning during the Franco regime.
Money changed hands between
doctors, nurses, priests,
nuns and foster
families - who didn't necessarily know the babies were stolen.
Juani, 48, wonders about her
brother. He was delivered at the Santa Cristina Clinic in Madrid. But
they told her mother he was stillborn. Juani thinks her brother
is still alive somewhere.
And when many think of Spain they,
enraptured, think of Catholicism and God. Just the tip of the make
believe iceberg. The Catholic Church in Spain could give Bergoglio
lessons on how to bamboozle the faithful.
The misery that one sees throughout Latin America - all of it! - can be
traced back to the version of Catholicism Spaniards forced down the
throats of the natives in Central and South America while stealing the
continent blind. If, conversely, the real Catholic Faith had been
applied in the New World, it would have turned into a Paradise.
