Highlights: “It appears that the Catholic University of America's view of universality now includes depicting George Floyd as Jesus Christ! This is how frankly absurd leftists are willing to go when it comes to their true faith, which as we'll find, is in fact, Marxism not Christianity.” “The combination of these two factors - the origins of social justice in 19th-century Catholic social theology on the one hand and its Marxist globalist coopting on the other - has combined to shape the worldview of the leftwing of the Catholic church. As it turns out, the leftwing of the Catholic church is no different from the leftwing in any modern Western nation.”“This George Floyd painting is symbolic of the liberal wing of the Catholic Church basically hating on itself.”“The elitist liberal Catholic leadership are still living in an old world where Marxist liberalism was seen as the hope of all mankind by leftist Catholic elites and they're absolutely clueless to the fact that that world is dead.”Timestamps: [02:30] The Catholic University of America's controversial George Floyd painting[04:46] How the George Floyd painting was stolen and on [05:20] Where the leftwing view of the Catholic Church came from[08:48] Why this painting represents a leftwing political era that is being rejected all over the worldResources: BLACK FRIDAY BUY 2 GET 1 FREE SALE: Get Your LET'S GO BRANDON Patriot T-Shirts and Merch Here: https://store.turleytalks.com/Ep. 635 Taliban DESTROY George Floyd Mural in Kabul!!!Ep. 735 Poland DEFENDS BORDERS Against MIGRANT ONSLAUGHT!!!What is CRT?

The Haitian Revolution was one of the most important forces in changing the trajectory of the West in the 19th Century. The former slaves defeated three of the mightiest European powers to achieve their freedom and liberation. The question that is rarely asked is, what was the philosophical foundation of their governing structure after independence? Was Haiti trying to be an example of "Black Atlantic Humanism" in the form of Western Enlightenment Societies? Or was Haiti setting a different path in order to illustrate a rejection of the Western values to highlight their sheer racial hypocrisy? Also, was there a true consensus in Haiti after independence on these issues? We will ask the author of the book, "Haiti's Paper War," to find out. Chelsea Stieber Chelsea Stieber is an Associate Professor in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at the Catholic University of America. She is the author of Haiti's Paper War: Post-independence Writing, Civil War, and the Making of the Republic, 1804–1954. About TIR Thank you, guys, again for taking the time to check this out.

Distributism is a political and economic theory under which the means of productions would be redistributed to as many people as possible, as part of an effort to decentralize power to the greatest extent possible, and to protect the rights of smaller political and economic units against the encroachments of both central government and big business. While distributists and free market advocates can find some common ground, there remain significant differences between the two groups. On February 18, 2016, the Acton Institute hosted a debate on the topic of distributism. Arguing in favor of distributism was Joseph Pearce, who at the time was writer-in-residence at Aquinas College in Nashville, Tenn., and the director of the college's Center for Faith and Culture. Currently, Pearce is director of book publishing at the Augustine Institute and editor of the St. Austin Review. On the side of free markets was Jay Richards, assistant research professor in the Busch School of Business and the academic content lead for the Tuscon Project at the Catholic University of America.

Big thank you to the legendary Chris Sarandon for coming on my show for an interview! Chris talked about starting out in theater at the Catholic University of America, being nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Leon Shermer in Dog Day Afternoon, and his introduction to Horror as a viewer. He explained why Horror was looked down upon by actors at a time and how that viewpoint changed in the 80s. He got into his legendary role as the vampire Jerry Dandrige in the original Tom Holland's 1985 Fright Night, his favorite scenes from the film, and that if Tom Holland was doing the sequel he would have most likely reprised his role as Jerry Dandrige. He discussed his role as Detective Mike Norris in Tom Holland's 1988 Child's Play and his iconic voiceover of Jack Skellington in Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. He revealed the moment when he thought that The Nightmare Before Christmas and his role as Jack Skellington would become a mega hit amongst audiences. He announced that his memoir Heroes, Vampires, and Villains should be releasing next year sometime in 2022 as well as his own podcast. We finished the interview talking sports. Chris is a fan of the Yankees, Giants, and Knicks. Stay tuned for everything that he has on the way! Follow Chris Sarandon on Instagram: @theofficialchrissarandon and Twitter: @sarandon_chris.

Korea24 – 2021.10.29. (Friday) News Briefing: The government will enforce the first phase of a gradual transition into a new ‘living with COVID-19’ system from next week, easing curbs on private gatherings and quarantine measures. Starting on Monday, up to ten people can gather for private meetings in the Seoul metro region, and up to 12 in non-capital areas. A COVID-19 vaccine pass system will be adopted for virus-prone entertainment facilities and indoor gyms. (Koo Hee-jin) In-Depth News Analysis (Weekly Economy Review): The South Korean government has proposed a record high budget of 604.4 trillion won for next year. President Moon Jae-in said expansionary policies are inevitable as the nation seeks to overcome the COVID-19 crisis. Meanwhile, the Bank of Korea revealed that South Korea’s economy was estimated to have grown 0.3 percent in the third quarter, casting doubt on whether Korea can achieve the forecasted 4 percent growth this year. And according to data by the BOK, 4 out of 10 companies were not able to pay interest on their loans with operating profits last year. Professor Yang Jun-sok from the Catholic University of Korea provides his analysis on these topics. Korea Trending with Walter Lee: 1. The Cultural Heritage Administration (CHA) has put off a decision on apartments that it says are being built illegally near the Gimpo Jangneung Royal Tomb, a UNESCO World Heritage site. (김포 장릉 문화재위원회 심의 결과 '보류') 2. South Korea has named Cesar Hernandez Gonzalez, as the head coach for the women’s national volleyball team, after Stefano Lavarini turned down a contract extension. (라바리니 보좌하던 세자르 코치, 여자배구 대표팀 지휘봉) 3. The social networking giant Facebook has rebranded itself as Meta, with ambitions to become known as a “metaverse company” (저커버그 페이스북 CEO "메타버스에 집중…사명 '메타'로 변경") Movie Spotlight: Films by two very prolific, veteran directors are up for review this week. First up is Sir Ridley Scott’s ‘The Last Duel’ (라스트 듀얼). Set in 14th century France, it is reportedly based on a real event; the last officially sanctioned duel to the death in France over a rape charge. Meanwhile, auteur Hong Sang-soo returns with his 26th feature, ‘In Front of Your Face’ (당신 얼굴 앞에서). It tells the story of a former actress, who has been living in the US, returning to Korea to reconnect with her sister. Jason Bechervaise and Darcy Paquet join us to provide their reviews. Next Week From Seoul with Mark Wilson-Choi: - South Korea will begin reducing the number of COVID-19 vaccination centers next week, as much of the population has now been vaccinated. - President Moon Jae-in will continue his tour of Europe, attending the COP26 climate summit in Scotland from Monday, followed by a state visit to Hungary from Tuesday. - On Friday, the main opposition People Power Party will announce their Presidential candidate.

Buy a pulse oximeter. Stock up on Tylenol, vitamin D, Pepcid. Whisper so you don't spit. Stand six feet from others—no, 10. Wear gloves. Wear two masks! Open the windows. Close the schools. The dizzying madness of COVID, and the reliance on gurulike experts, has been eerily familiar. Do you all understand where we are right now? But by that point, almost 50 years of damage had been done, during which any clinician who came up with a different diagnosis or questioned Bettelheim's practices suffered immediate and devastating professional consequences. “In the Orthogenic School,” psychiatrist Richard Kaufman told the Chicago Tribune. “Bettelheim's mind supplanted your own.”

Dr. Brett Salkeld sits down with Dr. Melissa Moschella, moral philosopher at the Catholic University of America for a three-part series discussing vaccine mandates and exemptions from a Catholic perspective. Show Snippet: "It doesn't really make sense for an authority of the Catholic Church to be able to sign off on an exemption that says 'the Catholic Church forbids me to do X...when, in fact, the Catholic Church does not forbid you."
Two years ago Pope Francis canonized John Henry Newman, English theologian, scholar and poet. Saint Newman was instrumental in the founding of the Catholic University of Ireland in 1854, which, in time evolved into University College Dublin, today the largest university in Ireland. I had the opportunity to interview Steven C. Warner, founder of the Notre Dame Folk Choir, who attended the canonization of St. Newman in Rome in 2019. This replay episode is a great one, highlighting the ways that John Henry Newman can still influence our Church today. Not only that, it's a great episode to hear as we prepare for All Saints Day. Enjoy!

Is it foolish to assume we can trust research institutes who conduct public opinion polls? How do we know what is true? Why are pro-lifers so often mischaracterized? This season on Life, Liberty, and Law, we are tearing down lies that are being projected to Americans from news outlets, social media, and even from the floor of Congress about the value of life. One of those abominable messages we keep hearing is this: an America where abortion is unlimited is actually what most Americans want. We want to equip you for conversations about life. When each of us share our concern for the most vulnerable in our society with our friends, coworkers, and neighbors, hearts are changed. Today we have brought in one of the best experts to give us tools on how to trudge wisely through the media's depiction of abortion policies and culture. Dr. Michael New is a Research Associate of Political Science and Social Research at The Catholic University of America, as well as an Associate Scholar at the Charlotte Lozier Institute. https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/new-poll-on-abortion-asks-the-wrong-question/ https://lozierinstitute.org/team-member/michael-j-new/ Twitter: @michael_j_new
Italy has made it mandatory to prove Covid vaccination, or a negative test, to go to work. Thousands of workers at Trieste port have gone on strike over the mandate, and we get reaction to the new policy from Alessandro Borghese, who is a chef with two restaurants in Milan, and another opening soon in Venice. And with a majority of Italians supporting the measure, we get wider context from Professor Guendalina Graffigna, who is an expert on consumer health psychology at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Piacenza. Also in the programme, the BBC's Vivienne Nunis heads to the TED Countdown climate summit in Edinburgh, to find out about innovative approaches to tackling climate change. Plus, we have a report from India as the country's festival season gets under way, and hear that whilst there seems to be more enthusiasm on the streets compared to last year, it does not necessarily mean more business. Today's edition is presented by Mike Johnson, and produced by Faarea Masud and Ivana Davidovic.
