Not much excitement about this apparently.So what he cannot do by Congressional action, he does by fiat. The interesting part is that his Executive Order was posted in the Federal Register and gives 30 days for responses. Presidential powers over the Internet and telecommunications were laid out in a U.S. Senate bill in 2009, which proposed handing the White House the power to disconnect private-sector computers from the Internet.
Jake will be going to Rome with his family, in October 2012, for the canonization Mass of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha who will then be called a “Saint.”

ATLANTA, GA (SoOutloud.com) - A bold and original animated music video, calling for President Obama to “GET OUT“, was released this week by nationally known speaker and Emmy Award-winning Creative Director, Ryan Bomberger. It was created through the newly launched http://www.sooutloud.com/ The 2 minute long video, complete with a jingle that’s infectious, adds a creative punch and dares to call out the President’s failures on a wide range of issues.
“I’m as black as Obama, and I’m tired of any legitimate criticism of the President’s policies reduced to lazy and ludicrous charges of racism. Obama and the Democrats have been promising a whole lot of hope and change but, instead, have delivered higher unemployment, higher poverty rates and millions more welfare enrollees while aggressively promoting abortion in the black community,” Bomberger explains.
“Blessed Kateri – Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.” Her Feast Day is July 14.
Kateri was born in Auriesville, New York, in 1656 to a Christian Algonquin woman and a pagan Mohawk chief. When she was a child, a smallpox epidemic attacked her tribe and both her parents died. She was left with permanent scars on her face and impaired eyesight. Her uncle, who had now become chief of the tribe, adopted her and her aunts began planning her marriage while she was still very young.
When three Jesuit fathers were visiting the tribe in 1667 and staying in the tent of her uncle, they spoke to her of Christ, and though she did not ask to be baptized, she believed in Jesus with an incredible intensity. She also realized that she was called into an intimate union with God as a consecrated virgin.
Pope John Paul I
Although it is not yet official, the miracle that could lead to John Paul I’s beatification is the healing of Giuseppe Denora, an Italian man who was cured of a severe gastric tumor after praying to the late Pope.
Pope Paul VI
The miracle attributed to the Servant of God Paul VI – who made Joseph Ratzinger a cardinal – is the healing of a baby inside its mother’s womb.
While it has no direct bearing on theology or revelation, the scientific discovery hailed by some as the “God particle” is an important achievement, a Vatican astronomer says.
“It is a wonderful piece of science,” said Jesuit Brother Guy Consolmagno, a researcher and spokesman at the Vatican Observatory, in a July 5 interview with EWTN News.
