Impeachable? "Nobody Died in Watergate"

Has the Nation changed?  Once upon a time in Washington D.C. there was a cover-up and Nixon and friends were out on their collective ears.  Impeachment was the battle cry and the national remedy.

Charles Krauthammer on Thursday brought up Watergate and reminded us that the Benghazi aftermath will be  “about who knew up high and when,” adding, “I’ll remind you that nobody died in Watergate.”

Gov. Mike Huckabee  “ I’m going to be blunt and tell you this — nobody died in Watergate. We have some people who are dead because of this. There are some questions to be answered and Americans ought to demand to get answers and it doesn’t matter what the politics are.” Gov. Mike Huckabee

What Happens When We Are No Longer a Nation of Law? and the Press Doesn’t Care?

 

"The Roman Republic fell, not because of the ambition of Caesar or Augustus, but because it had already long ceased to be in any real sense a republic at all. When the sturdy Roman plebeian, who lived by his own labor, who voted without reward according to his own convictions, and who with his fellows formed in war the terrible Roman legion, had been changed into an idle creature who craved nothing in life save the gratification of a thirst for vapid excitement, who was fed by the state, and directly or indirectly sold his vote to the highest bidder, then the end of the republic was at hand, and nothing could save it. The laws were the same as they had been, but the people behind the laws had changed, and so the laws counted for nothing."
– President Theodore Roosevelt

USCCB Responds To Inaccurate Statement Of Fact On HHS Mandate Made During Vice Presidential Debate

WASHINGTON—The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) issued the following statement, October 12. Full text follows:

Last night, the following statement was made during the Vice Presidential debate regarding the decision of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to force virtually all employers to include sterilization and contraception, including drugs that may cause abortion, in the health insurance coverage they provide their employees:

"With regard to the assault on the Catholic Church, let me make it absolutely clear. No religious institution—Catholic or otherwise, including Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital—none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. That is a fact. That is a fact."

This is not a fact. The HHS mandate contains a narrow, four-part exemption for certain "religious employers." That exemption was made final in February and does not extend to "Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital," or any other religious charity that offers its services to all, regardless of the faith of those served.

Bad Religion — Joe Bidden – A Catholic?

“Those who belong to Christ through faith and Baptism must confess their baptismal faith before men.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church)

Joe Bidden seems to believe this is optional in his practice of the Faith.  He practices a brand of religion that is in practice heretical whether he knows it or not.
