Angels We Have Heard on High: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2018

Angels We Have Heard on High

 

The English version of the lyrics to the Christmas carol “Angels We Have Heard on High” was written in 1862 by James Chadwick, Roman Catholic Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle, England. The original music was a French song titled, Les Anges Dans Nos Campagnes.  Bishop Chadwick’s lyrics are not an exact translation from the French. This beautiful song recounts the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ as it is depicted in the Gospel of St. Luke.

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o’er the plain
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be?
Which inspire your heavenly songs?
Gloria

Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee,
Christ the Lord, the newborn King.
Gloria

See Him in a manger laid,
Jesus, Lord of heaven and earth;
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
With us sing our Saviour’s birth.
Gloria

 

Les Anges dans Nos Campagnes

Les anges dans nos campagnes
Ont entonné le chant des cieux;
Et l’écho de nos montagnes
reprend cet air mélodieux:
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Bergers, pour qui cette fête?
Quel est l’objet de tous ces chants?
Quel vainqueur, quelle conquête
Mérite ces cris triomphants?
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Ils annoncent la naissance
Du Rédempteur, Roi d’Israël
Et, dans sa reconnaissance,
La terre chante avec le ciel:
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Bergers, loin de vos retraites
Unissez-vous à leurs concerts
Et que vos tendres musettes
Fassent retentir dans les airs:
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Cherchons tous l’heureux village
Qui l’a vu naître sous ses toits,
Offrons-lui le tendre hommage
Et de nos cœurs et de nos voix!
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New 2018!

REMEMBER… “Is America Fading into the Distance?”

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

I wrote the following commentary shortly after my candidacy for the United States Senate (on the ballot 2012, Florida). It is important to revisit the facts laid out:

Honoring our Veterans 2017

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

This unknown soldier did not die– nor is this soldier standing guard for a globalist (socialist) cause. As such, I am grateful for the respect and support that President Donald J. Trump has shown for our veterans, as he fights to undo the damage caused by years of socialist policies.

Honoring our Veterans

I have had the privilege of visiting the tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington Cemetery several times. During each visit the same thought crosses my mind: that the brave soldiers who gave up their lives, and the courageous veterans who have served to keep our nation free and safe, did not do so for a socialist cause.

Don’t be afraid to use the word COMMUNIST!

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

You have my permission to use the word COMMUNIST. 

You see, there are certain “intellectuals” and activists who will pounce on you for using the word COMMUNIST to describe the chaos (moral, social and economic) that has been created by globalist “big thinkers” of the socialist persuasion.

These self-professed big thinkers will tell you that “communism is dead”— and that your brain stopped working after the 1980’s for using the “C word.” In fact, if you’re reading this and you are a Millenial, you have definitely been mentally bombarded by the socialist elite with lies about communism being dead.

Communism, in fact, is alive and thriving worldwide— it’s just operating under different disguises, and that’s what makes it so dangerous. International Communists are using many different means of financing their agenda, including, but not limited to, taxpayer money maneuvered through NGOs (non-governmental organizations).

One current example is the Catalan “independence” movement, which is controlled by communist groups who claim they want a “free” and open society that is “feminist” and welcomes “all”— while they indoctrinate children in Catalonia with socialist activism— using guess what… taxpayer money!

Quote from Gustavo Alcalde, a delegate from the Spanish government:

El adoctrinamiento en la escuela en Cataluña es tan eficaz como la propaganda nazi.” Translation: The indoctrination in Catalan schools is as efficient as Nazi propaganda.

The truth is that Catalonia has enjoyed an extremely free, feminist and open society, which is why it led Europe with the most aggressive law in 1937 legalizing abortion during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy! Fortunately, this was outlawed by the Franco government. And please, don’t waste a minute writing to me to tell me that I’m a “franquista”— based on my statement of a historical fact, which saved millions of Spanish citizens from being murdered through abortion.

If you write to me to tell me that I’m a “franquista”– then you too are a COMMUNIST!

And yes, I know what I’m talking about. I’m a survivor of Communism in Cuba– and grew up in a family of proud Spaniards.

Today, Catalonia leads Spain with the greatest number of abortions (followed by Madrid and Andalucía). Even Catholic hospitals in Catalonia have performed abortions. Catalonia also leads Spain in homosexual “marriages” and Islamic centers, due to the “freedom” granted to them through socialist laws established after 1975, when Franco died.

The same indoctrination described above has been taking place in the United States for decades. And you wonder why you’re not allowed to use the word COMMUNIST.

Go ahead. Say it.

COMMUNISTS!

THE CATALAN INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT: Communism in Action

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

“The contemporary pro-independence movement with Marxist roots in the Països Catalans [Països Catalans is a political term mostly referring to Catalan-speaking regions– which the communists tend to stretch] was founded in 1969 from two fundamental sources: the revolutionary and anti-imperialist movements from around the world and the Catalan Marxism from the 1930s. Both sources have a common root: the October Revolution 1917 [Bolsheviks] and its consequences.”from Poble Lliure International, Number 2, April 2017.

Mendacity and Hypocrisy

The Catalan independence movement, through its illegal referendum and through all its manifestations– is communism in action. As such, it has nothing to do with freedom, democracy or respect for the rule of law.

Let me say this again: The Catalan independence movement, through its illegal referendum and through all its manifestations– is communism in action. As such, it has nothing to do with freedom, democracy or respect for the rule of law.

And you should be concerned, because the Catalan independence movement, made up of several parties and thousands of representatives throughout the world (yes, many are inside the United States) is a network of activists who seek to establish a communist state in Catalonia– even though they claim to be pacifists and democratic. This claim to pacifism and democracy is mendacity and hypocrisy of the highest level– because communists ALWAYS lie.

It is impossible to support the Catalan independence movement without supporting communist groups– because they are in control. Catalans that tell you otherwise are lying or half-baked, regardless of the fact that they may have a PhD behind their name.

One of the communist groups active in the Catalan independence movement is Catalunya Sí Que Es Pot (which means Yes, Catalonia Can). One of its representatives is Joan Josep Nuet, who in 1986 joined  the Partit dels i les Comunistes de Catalunya (Party of the Communists of Catalonia)-which as of November 1, 2017 will be known as Communistes de Catalunya (Communists of Catalonia).

And the very Communist Mr. Nuet is also a member of the Catalan Parliament.

These communists are not hiding– they operate out in the open.

Mr. Nuet traveled to Mexico earlier this year to obtain an endorsement of the illegal Catalan independence referendum from several Communist parties. This endorsement was executed in a document published in Catalan, English, Spanish and French titled, The international left-wing parties, in favour of the self-determination for the Catalan people”–and published in the communist bulletin Poble Lliure (Free People), which is the propaganda arm of the CUP Party, another communist front. 

Imagine that… “free people”– tell that to the people of Cuba, North Korea, China, Vietnam, Laos, Venezuela– and anywhere else communism takes root!

The document endorsing the Catalan illegal independence referendum was signed by the delegates of the Communist Parties of China, Cuba, Laos and Vietman, as well as by some members of the Uruguayan Broad Front, the Sandinista National Liberation Front of Nicaragua and the FMLN of El Salvador, as well as some Bolivarian groups from Venezuela, Bolivia and Ecuador.

Subsequently, talks were held with Die Linke, the largest organization of the German left, and with the Red-Green Alliance of Denmark, who also signed the document.

What is most offensive is that Mr. Nuet has been able to openly undermine the Constitution of Spain through his communist activities in support of illegal Catalan independence– and has done so in spite of the warnings from the Constitutional Tribunal.

The following is a quote from the document discussed above, which clearly outlines the Marxist structure of the Catalan independence movement:

“The construction of the Catalan republic is the key element of the democratic rupture with the Spanish State, heir of the Franco regime, and a step forward in the empowerment of the people of the South of Europe facing the kidnapping of the democracy in the hands of the elites. With the moral authority of a people that has always been on the side of the progressive forces, in Nicaragua and Euskal Herria, in Cuba and in Palestine or in Kurdistan, we welcome the signs of solidarity and we call revolutionaries around the world to reinforce our project for an independent, radically democratic and socially progressive society.

1917-2017: Russian revolution and pro-independence movement

The contemporary pro-independence movement with Marxist roots in the Països Catalans was founded in 1969 from two fundamental sources: the revolutionary and anti-imperialist movements from around the world and the Catalan Marxism from the 1930s. Both sources have a common root: the October Revolution 1917 [Bolsheviks] and its consequences.

Traditionally, the Catalan left-wing movement had moved between the republicanism and the anarcho-syndicalism, but the irruption of communism from the Bolshevik Revolution led to the rising of new leaders and parties that placed the Catalan national movement in terms much more similar to how the pro-independence movement developed afterwards, by binding class struggle to self-determination. We can find this influence in characters ranging from Archer, Nin, Maurín, Gonzonlez-Alba, Comorera or Compte, historical Catalan Communist militants, and the trade unionist Àngel Plagueña or the Catalan President Macià (President of the Generalitat and who proclaimed the Republic).”

So, there you have it. The next time you meet someone who supports the Catalan “independence” movement tell them that you know the truth behind it. And if they don’t, teach them before it’s too late, because Catalonia’s “independence” is the current model of what communists have in store worldwide.

Catalonia’s hypocritical autonomous government claims “freedom and democracy” while supporting Cuba’s bloody Communist dictatorship 

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Catalonia’s “progressive” autonomous government is destroying its economy as one of the richest regions in Spain through its hypocritical claim to “freedom and democracy” — as it continues to pursue independence from Spain.

Major corporations and financial institutions are fleeing the Catalan region, in order to avoid the political chaos created by the socialists behind the independence movement— a movement which has also sold the Catalan region’s Catholic and cultural soul by rolling out the red carpet politically to Islamic groups, in exchange for separatist votes.

I recall how Catalan separatists proudly waved their EU passports as soon as they became available, as a symbolic rejection of their Spanish nationality. But now, years later— not even their socialist brethren at the EU support their separatist cause. This is a perfect example of the chaotic nature of socialism.

Fortunately, the majority of Catalans DO NOT support this socialist separatist agenda, as the world has witnessed through  the massive anti-separatist demonstrations in Catalonia— and throughout Spain.

Not only is the above scenario a historical embarrassment in its lack of economic and cultural vision, but the Catalan autonomous government, while claiming “freedom and democracy”— shamelessly does business with Cuba’s bloody Communist military dictatorship, which has tortured and murdered the Cuban people for nearly 60 years!

FOR THE RECORD: President Trump on Communism 

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Please Shut Down Espionage Center in Washington DC Known as Cuban Embassy

This is one of those sad “I told you so” moments

On June 19 I wrote the commentary provided above— urgently asking President Trump to shut down the Cuban Embassy in Washington DC. I did so, because my impression is that President Trump has not received sound advice on the danger that Cuba’s Communist regime presents to the United States. 

This week, my warnings to President Trump were confirmed when many members of the U.S. diplomatic staff were ordered to leave the U.S. Embassy in Havana after suffering attacks that have caused serious brain and hearing damage. These nefarious attacks are taking place at various locations in Havana. It is not known where else these attacks are taking place in the communist island prison.

President Trump has also expelled 15 Cuban “diplomats” (spies) from the Cuban Embassy in Washington DC, following these attacks.

This is reminiscent of the mysterious brain damage suffered earlier this year by Otto Warmbier— the young American man who vacationed in North Korea, and was returned to the U.S. in a vegetative state. 

Otto Warmbier died this summer.

President Trump sends a decisive message

Hopefully things are changing— given President Trump’s decisive anti-communist speech at the Hispanic Heritage Month presidential event, which took place this week.

Here’s his message to the communists (and their “globalist” and opportunistic fellow travelers) in the Western Hemisphere:

QUOTE FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP’s SPEECH:

“`As I announced before a wonderful crowd in Little Havana earlier this year, we will not lift sanctions on the Cuban regime until it delivers full political freedom for the Cuban people,” Trump said. “The same failed communist ideology that has brought oppression to Cuba has brought nothing but suffering and misery everywhere and everyplace it has been anywhere in the world.”

“Communism is the past; freedom is the future,” Trump said to applause from the audience.’”

President Trump, please put an end to the farcical “diplomacy” between the U.S. and Cuba— before more Americans are hurt by these brutal Communist thugs, who have been murdering and oppressing the Cuban people for almost 60 years.
