Does the Catholic church believe that God sends Chastisements?

What’s the story with CATHOLICS and the belief that global pandemics and wars are SENT BY GOD as a PUNISHMENT FOR SIN, for a WORLD TURNING AWAY FROM GOD? Almost exactly a century ago and three years into the First World War, three children in rural Fatima, Portugal, claimed that Mary, the Mother of God, appeared to them in 1917 in visions on the 13th … Continue reading Does the Catholic church believe that God sends Chastisements?

Gerry Adams and GOD – Why the IRA hasn’t Repented

In 1971, there was a stand-off or virtual split for a very short time in the Derry Brigade of the IRA. Creggan and other units wanted a particular IRA man to be the new O.C. – Roddy – while the Bogside and Brandywell units wanted a different IRA man – Robby – to be the O.C. It wasn’t a stand-off that was likely to be … Continue reading Gerry Adams and GOD – Why the IRA hasn’t Repented

The IRA’s Use of Torture

It is a strange quirk of history that the IRA’s early practice of extreme torture on its abducted and soon-to-be murdered prisoners occurred just as its political wing and proxies were protesting about the treatment of the very first internees back in 1971 who were later termed ‘the hooded men’. The IRA quickly developed its own hooded men and women who were not merely to … Continue reading The IRA’s Use of Torture

The IRA’s Legacy of Lies

Gerry Adams’ Cult mantra of late has been: “the IRA has left the scene”. Not so, Gerry – virtually all IRA members and prominent leaders have been absorbed into Sinn Féin and there they remain under the new disguise of democratic politics without a shred of remorse, repentance, truth or integrity. Look around you, Gerry, at the many self-confessed IRA shooters and bombers known to … Continue reading The IRA’s Legacy of Lies

IRA Prisoners – POWs or Terrorists?

Was the recently disbanded and self-styled ‘Irish Republican Army’ entitled to claim the term ‘Prisoners of War’ for its captured combatants? To qualify under the Third Geneva Convention, a combatant must be part of a chain of command, wear a “fixed distinctive marking, visible from a distance”, bear arms openly, and have conducted military operations according to the laws and customs of war. Since the … Continue reading IRA Prisoners – POWs or Terrorists?

The 15 Takeaways of the IRA Army Council

1) Where the Civil Rights’ movement and the Social Democratic and Labour Party successfully represented Northern Nationalists in the early 1970s, introduce an unwanted campaign of terrorism largely fought by teenagers and young persons. 2) Target not only British soldiers who were initially welcomed by the Nationalist community, but also Protestant neighbours, not only members of the RUC and UDR, but also Protestant neighbours who … Continue reading The 15 Takeaways of the IRA Army Council

The Victim the IRA Disappeared Twice

In September 1998 the IRA made a staggering and overdue admission to its newspaper, An Phoblacht, that it had murdered and secretly buried – disappeared – ‘a small number of people’ during the 1970s – in effect admitting that it had committed the most serious Human Rights’ atrocities. In March 1999, the IRA declared that it had disappeared the remains of 9 victims – it … Continue reading The Victim the IRA Disappeared Twice

Sinn Féin Unfit for Government?

The oft-repeated claims by Republic of Ireland political parties, Fine Gael, Fianna Fáil and Labour, that Sinn Fein was “unfit for government” in the Republic of Ireland were a hypocritical affront to citizens in Northern Ireland, but – if it’s possible – even more of an affront to those citizens in NI who identified as Irish citizens carrying Irish passports. Why should Irish citizens in … Continue reading Sinn Féin Unfit for Government?

Raymond McCartney, Eamonn MacDermott & the Murder of Detective Constable Patrick McNulty

Catholic RUC Detective Constable Patrick McNulty was murdered outside Desmond’s Garage on the Strand Road in Derry/Londonderry at 9am on Thursday, 27th January, 1977 by two Derry Brigade IRA gunmen.

Why should IRA murderers repent? Why should ANY murderers repent? It’s Northern Ireland – carry on murdering!

Why should IRA murderers repent? Why for that matter should ANY murderer repent? Forget even a “religious” repentance or turning away from murders for RELIGIOUS reasons – why should any murderers change their ways for even a SECULAR repentance, such as a conversion to concepts of victims’ rights, civil rights or Human Rights? You don’t just have to be “religious” to give up murder… Why … Continue reading Why should IRA murderers repent? Why should ANY murderers repent? It’s Northern Ireland – carry on murdering!

Eamonn Mallie unfairly attacks England bomber Martina Anderson

In his long-winded 3,000 word ‘contribution’ entitled “The Unacceptable Faces of the DUP and Sinn Féin”, Northern Ireland’s favourite pompous windbag Eamonn Mallie opines for 2,500 words about the DUP (and Alliance) and then in only the final 340 words addresses ‘the unacceptable faces of Sinn Féin’ where he names only one Shinner, Martin McGuinness’ favourite IRA England bomber Martina Anderson – and his case … Continue reading Eamonn Mallie unfairly attacks England bomber Martina Anderson

Colum Eastwood Dances with Wolves

Colum Eastwood’s massive victory in Derry/Londonderry over Sinn Féin and its controlling IRA Army Council strategists shows – among other things – a desire among many constitutional nationalists to throw off the yoke of Sinn Féin abstentionism and the IRA’s sectarian and violence-glorifying influence in favour of some ‘normal’ politics and representation. Who would have imagined that Northern Ireland’s second city would ever give the … Continue reading Colum Eastwood Dances with Wolves

Is it possible to be in the IRA and have “no victims”, as Paul O’Connor claims?

Closet IRA Volunteer and Director of the Pat Finucane Centre Paul O’Connor recently expressed one of the more extraordinary claims I have heard in many years – he admitted only under severe pressure and after being outed that he had been a fully active IRA Volunteer from 1970 until 1972 and yet HAD NO VICTIMS… ABSOLUTELY NO VICTIMS! Is it possible to be in the … Continue reading Is it possible to be in the IRA and have “no victims”, as Paul O’Connor claims?
