At the end of August, the Catholic Herald of the Arlington Diocese published a notice saying that one of the former chaplains of Christendom College, Father James McLucas, has been accused of sexual abuse and therefore removed from his last position. Subsequently, a report came out about the fact that he made a settlement with a young woman whom he had counseled from the age of 14 on and finally led into a sexual relationship when she was a young adult.
In light of these terrible revelations about Father McLucas, Dr. Robert Hickson – a founding faculty member of Christendom College who was dismissed in 1988 and whose family subsequently broke apart – gives testimony about the fact that Father McLucas, as the chaplain of Christendom College from at least 1992 until the summer of 1995, had a subversively destructive role in the further break-up of his marriage. He gives specific details about his claim, among other things that Fr. McLucas once told him that he would have married a woman like Dr. Hickson’s wife and that he then, during the break-up, took off to the beach with her and her eight children.
Father McLucas refused to hear Dr. Hickson’s confessions after 1992 and clearly then took sides with the wife in a marital struggle.
At the time, Father John Hardon, S.J., when he heard about what Father McLucas had told Dr. Hickson about his wife and his subsequent acts, decided to intervene with Cardinal John O’Connor, McLucas’ own bishop in New York, which he unfortunately then never accomplished.
But more importantly, Dr. Timothy O’Donnell, as of 1992 the President of Christendom College, knew most of the claims against his chaplain but did not take any action against him. On the contrary, Dr. O’Donnell supported Dr. Hickson’s wife at the time (a later annulment showed the nullity of that marriage), welcomed her and the eight children of that family on campus and even later hired her as a professor on campus, in spite of the fact that she had broken her marriage and left her husband.
The result of this exclusion of a husband and father and, at the same time, of the covering-up for a priest so subversive of a marriage by Dr. O’Donnell, later had grave effects for the life of a young woman. Had he himself acted immediately, that sexual abuse might not ever have happened.

Macgregor appears to cite intel sources for his numbers and timetable—and I assume he really does have good sources. He says the offensive will happen “not sooner than 12/10 and not later than 12/19.” It will involve something like 540,000 troops with 1,500 tanks, thousands of other armored vehicles, huge numbers of helicopters, fixed wing aircraft, and bombers. These are numbers he says that have been confirmed by US intel. - Mark Wauck [https://meaninginhistory.substack.com/p/doug-macgregors-timetable-and-scale?utm_source=post-email-title&publication_id=473679&post_id=89073832&isFreemail=true&utm_medium=email] Modern Diplomacy reports that "Douglas Macgregor , Col.

Mainstream Media Acknowledges Biden’s “Arrogant” Sanctions On Russia Are Damning Americans: @MaxBlumenthal Biden's arrogant anti-Russian sanctions have amounted to a price hike on working class Americans that have so far failed to weaken the Russian economy. His neocon policy accelerates the process of de-dollarization, diplomatic isolation & imperial decline. The mainstream new outlet asked "Is America the Real Victim of Anti-Russia Sanctions?": Remember the claims that Russia’s economy was more or less irrelevant, merely the equivalent of a small, not very impressive European country? “Putin, who has an economy the size of Italy,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in 2014 after the invasion of Crimea, “[is] playing a poker game with a pair of twos and winning.” Of increasing Russian diplomatic and geopolitical influence in Europe, the Middle East, and East Asia, The Economist asked in 2019, “How did a country with an economy the size of Spain … ach
