“The History of Political Correctness” video. I couldn’t look away.

So I’m not too proud to admit that I am blessed with the insomnia. And right now, I am fully inverted.  Up all night, and if I want to be up before the crack of noon, I better not just set the phone alarm, but sleep with the phone on my chest so that the vibration brings me to the point of infarction when it goes off.

What does a 21st century insomniac do to while away those frustrating early morning hours?  Why, watch YouTube videos, of course.  Last night’s spelunking into the caves of the internet brought me to the following video.  Twenty-two minutes.  I thought, “Oh, this’ll put me to sleep.”  Wrong.  Incorrect.  I couldn’t look away.  It is riveting.  It is the serious history of Political Correctness going back to its roots at World War I, (or as those of us in the know like to refer to that period, FATIMA).

If I survive the war (which I won’t) and if I am crowned Holy Roman Emperor (which I won’t be, because I’m a chick and a peasant and all that), the first thing I would do, even before nuking Mecca and Medina into an inland sea of glass, would be to burn to the ground, plough the ashes and then salt the earth (just to be sure), COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY.

If there is an actual, physical portal to hell on this, God’s Good Earth, it is somewhere within Columbia University.

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

PATER NOSTER, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Dear Ann,

I was reminded at mass today to give a quick thank you for your Bead Squeezer article (Nov. ARSH 2013). Truly a life changer for me. The meditation is infinitely profound and the fruits are a perfect prayer checklist. I’ve got a long long long way to go but my priorities have changed over the past couple years: irregular church attendance is now daily, been to confession with sense of urgency, starting to attend the Extraordinary Form, and now making plans to get confirmed. It started when I tossed the iPod and instead prayed the rosary while running Central Park (NY) – takes about 3 miles for me to complete a set of mysteries. {So, you’re talking six minute miles? I am duly impressed! -Ann} So thank you. You’re in my prayers.

Thank you also for recommending the sermons of St. Alphonsus Liguori. They are marvelous in every way. I plan to buy a box of them to give away as gifts.

You might consider a book recommendation list on your website. I also read The Life of St. Joseph from your recommendation. It was wonderful and it’s prompted me to be more charitable. Next up is Augustine’s Confessions and The Life of St. Dominic by Augusta Drane. Dominic will likely be my confirmation name.

One last thing on the rosary. I just used my fingers to stay on track but recently bought an Irish Penal Rosary (An Paidrin Beag). The crucifix includes pictures of objects associated with crucifixion (eg. spear, nails, whips, hammer, rooster). It’s a powerful meditation of what Christ endured for us and I’m so impressed that these persecuted Catholics risked their lives to carry one. With only ten beads it was easy to conceal but still rebellious in a good way.



Okay.  I have been posting mostly over at the temporary website set up for the duration of the Synod Against the Family in Rome, WhatIsUpWithTheSynod.com .  Here is a recent link roundup, with the most recent first:

Ann Barnhardt Mailbag: You Keep Using That Word… Invincible

Ann Barnhardt Mailbag Q&A: “What Should I Do If There Is No Decent Parish Nearby?”

Ann Barnhardt Heckles Bishop

CrossPost at WhatIsUpWithTheSynod.com: “Ann Barnhardt Heckles Bishop”

I have been asked to contribute to a new, temporary website that will be covering the Synod to Destroy the Family in Rome.  My first piece is posted there now.  It is titled “Ann Barnhardt Heckles Bishop”.

A teaser excerpt:

Still glaring at me, the bishop then launched into the first of his two defenses of the September 8th catastrophic Motu Proprio. First, he complained about the “stack of paperwork” backlogged on his desk from all of the annulment requests he had to deal with.

I interrupted him with, “Yeah, that’s just awful – almost as bad as being nailed to a cross….”

Thus ended the episcopal bitch-fest about the unbearable existential burden of backlogged paperwork.

It gets even better from there.

It’s Official: A Dead Canadian Protestant Country Singer Is More Catholic Than the Pope

Hank Snow!

My religion’s not old-fashioned
But it’s real genuine
Two and two make four today
As it did in my Lord’s time
Modern days don’t make a difference
You can’t alter truth in time
My religion’s not old-fashioned,
But it’s real genuine

There is but one real religion
That redeems the sinners’ soul
It’s as timeless as the ages
And it never will grow old

My Lord gave the key to Thomas*
I’m the Way, the Truth, the Life
And the Way has never changed
Since He spoke the word that night.

My religion’s not old-fashioned
But it’s real genuine
Two and two make four today
As it did in my Lord’s time
Modern days don’t make a difference
You can’t alter truth in time
My religion’s not old-fashioned,
But it’s real genuine

Some are prone to take the Bible
And dilute the words of Christ
They admit He came here one time
But will never make it twice

Be not temped by those scoffers
He said such men would arise
There is darkness in their teaching
But there’s light through Jesus Christ

(*The reference in the lyric to Thomas and the key is not the Petrine Keys, but rather the words of Our Lord to St. Thomas in John 14:6.  Thanks to those who sent in lyric corrections!)

After Pausing and Taking Several Deep Cleansing Breaths, My Nutty Remains Spittle-Flicked

I have been told repeatedly that my particular vocation seems to be opening up discussion about deeply unpleasant things and being the first to broach topics.  Once someone has said something publicly, it is easier for other people to begin to discuss it too, apparently.  In this I am happy to help.  I hope this somewhat meandering piece helps.

I have received many emails from thoughtful people citing Canon Law which, if I am reading it correctly, indicates that despite the extensive, forceful body of law addressing the corruption of a Papal Election, no matter what is done or how the law is broken, the law is not enforceable. Ironically, the reasoning given is that it is only in this way that integrity of succession can be guaranteed.

Now, many people at this point will say that since I have been screaming like a banshee since the Obama usurpation in ARSH 2008 about the Rule of Law and electoral integrity, that this is going to be a mere case of “Ann has her little hammer, so everything to her looks like a nail.”  If you say so.  But I continue to be amazed at the parallel tracks that we have seen with regards to the Obama regime and the Bergoglio regime.  The sheer number of datapoints that map across almost perfectly are impossible to ignore.  And now we have election fraud and possible coercion.

So, my questions are these:

If there is extensive law written that covers election fraud, but it is impossible to enforce, or if a sufficient number of people agree that So-and-So is the President or Pope despite the law, how does that not utterly, completely destroy the entire notion of the Rule of Law itself?  As I have said for years with regards to Obama, if you can’t enforce Article II Section 1 Clause 5 of the Constitution, what can you enforce? Can you enforce the border? Can you enforce citizenship? Equal protection? Search and seizure? Right to bear arms? Can you enforce the law against treason? Theft? Murder? Trafficking in body parts? Religious persecution?

If you can’t enforce the clear law protecting the Church against a cabal of Marxist-Sodomite infiltrators determined to destroy the Church from the inside by fixing a papal election years in advance, and who are now openly, publicly admitting it, to say nothing of the evidence that is now re-emerging that the previous Pope may have been coerced into resigning by using the SWIFT system to totally shut down the Vatican’s ability to use money – evidence which I admit I initially wrongly disregarded as being too tangential – if these laws do not apply to this situation, what possible situation could they apply to?

I really want to drill this point home.  If having the Church and the See of Peter usurped by the Enemies of Christ is NOT sufficient to warrant corrective action and enforcement of Canon Law with regards to not only papal election integrity, but also with regards to heresy, then logically, there is absolutely no circumstance that would warrant any sort of resistance to the schemes of Satan and his minions on earth with regards to the Papacy.  None.

The same with the U.S.  If having your government usurped and overthrown by an Indonesian National with a Kenyan musloid Marxist biological father and an Indonesian musloid Marxist adoptive father who, along with his Communist handlers, has openly declared his intention to destroy the country from the inside-out for decades, if the eligibility laws do not apply to this situation, then what possible, possible situation could they apply to?

The answer is: none.  As I have said from the beginning of this long, strange trip, once you nullify the Rule of Law itself, you’re done.  We see this in the U.S. wherein oligarchs and their favored associates commit capital crimes, crimes warranting execution, on a daily basis, and NOTHING is done to stop them, much less punish them.

We are now seeing this in the Church.  The September 8th Motu Proprio has, by utterly abrogating the Rule of Law with regards to the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony by inverting the presumption to be that every marriage is, in fact, invalid and thus null, law which is the Word of Jesus Christ Himself, “What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder“, opened the door to an interstitial anarchy, which will then be seized by the Marxist-Sodomites to impose, by pure thuggery, the ratification of adultery and sodomy.  Because remember, as we have discussed previously, anarchy is ALWAYS temporary.  The biggest psycho thug mafia uses the engineered anarchy to become the new totalitarian regime.  This is why the Peronist-Fascist Bergoglio immediately made his battle cry, “Hagan lio!” Make a mess!  Raise hell!  They NEED that period of anarchy in order to take total power.

So, I have received quite a lot of feedback that it is wrong of me to even bring up the question or possibility that Bergoglio is an Antipope or that the See of Peter is vacant, or that Ratzinger may still be the true pope.  And by the way, I have no idea what the answer is. But I do know that the question is a legitimate one. By the way, most of these emails are extremely charitable and are saturated with genuine concern for me personally.  I hear you, and I am grateful.  Having said that, let me work through the logic of where I am coming from.

Question: Has there ever been an Antipope in the history of the Church?
Answer: Yes.

Question: Did the Church survive these Anti-papacies?
Answer: Obviously, yes.

Question: If there have been Antipopes previously, why is it impossible that there could be an Antipope today?
Answer: It is not impossible.

Question: Did any of the previous Antipopes do anything even remotely close to the damage that Bergoglio is doing?
Answer: No.

Question: Does the ascendancy of an Antipope constitute the “gates of hell prevailing” against the Church?
Answer: Obviously not. The Church has survived previous Antipopes. Therefore, it is not contrary to the words of Our Lord to concede that an Antipapcy is extant or even merely possible.

Question: Has there ever been a situation in the Church where more than one man could be argued to be the Pope?
Answer: Yes.  (See same set of corollary Q’s and A’s above….)

Question:  Has there ever been a period of “unnatural” sedevacantism in the Church, meaning something other than the interstitial period between the death of one pope and the timely election of the next?
Answer:  Yes.  (See same set of corollary Q’s and A’s above….)

Question:  Has anything even remotely close to the damage being done by the Bergoglio cabal been seen in the history of the Church, namely the de facto abrogation of a sacrament (matrimony)?
Answer:  No. This is unprecedented in its enormity and gravity.

Given this, I believe that it is not just appropriate, but MORALLY INCUMBENT upon us to ASK QUESTIONS about what exactly is going on with the papacy.  The Church is clearly under the greatest attack it has ever weathered.  The war was declared 50 years ago.  The bad guys have been wildly successful, and this is now the final push for their near-total victory.  Remember, the Church Militant could be reduced to, as one person put it to me, “one old woman hiding in a cave praying the rosary on her fingers”. To think that it is inappropriate or even sinful for the Good Guys to take any steps to not just resist, but even to try to determine the tactical situation – to ask, “who, exactly is in command, and what side is he on?” is simply wrong.

At this point, at long last, after all of this, we owe it to Our Blessed Lord and Savior and to all of the souls that He died for (first and foremost ourselves) who are being put in massively amplified danger of eternal damnation by Bergoglio and his cabal to ask the question, “Who is Bergoglio?” and “Is Bergoglio the Pope?”

Breaking Blockbuster: Prima Facie Evidence that Francis is, in fact, Antipope

I just had a conversation with someone a few hours ago about how incredibly dark these days are, and how A.) we should implore our Blessed Lord to arise from His slumber on the fantail of the boat and save us from these heretical/apostate jackals and B.) how Our Lord will surely give His Remnant Church a “trail of breadcrumbs” so that we can know where we need to be and where His Church is so that we can stay close to Him.

And… it’s happening.

Here’s the deal.  In order for a pope to be validly elected, there can be NO vote canvassing or .  It is an automatic excommunicable offense. This law was reinforced MIGHTILY in ARSH 1996 by none other than Pope St. John Paul II.  Here is the text from Universi Dominici Gregis:

The Cardinal electors shall further abstain from any form of pact, agreement, promise or other commitment of any kind which could oblige them to give or deny their vote to a person or persons. If this were in fact done, even under oath, I decree that such a commitment shall be null and void and that no one shall be bound to observe it; and I hereby impose the penalty of excommunication latae sententiae upon those who violate this prohibition. It is not my intention however to forbid, during the period in which the See is vacant, the exchange of views concerning the election.
I likewise forbid the Cardinals before the election to enter into any stipulations, committing themselves of common accord to a certain course of action should one of them be elevated to the Pontificate. These promises too, should any in fact be made, even under oath, I also declare null and void.
With the same insistence shown by my Predecessors, I earnestly exhort the Cardinal electors not to allow themselves to be guided, in choosing the Pope, by friendship or aversion, or to be influenced by favour or personal relationships towards anyone, or to be constrained by the interference of persons in authority or by pressure groups, by the suggestions of the mass media, or by force, fear or the pursuit of popularity. Rather, having before their eyes solely the glory of God and the good of the Church, and having prayed for divine assistance, they shall give their vote to the person, even outside the College of Cardinals, who in their judgment is most suited to govern the universal Church in a fruitful and beneficial way.

So, all of the Cardinals who canvassed, and, presuming he was aware of it and consented to it, the man that they were canvassing for, would all be automatically excommunicated PRIOR TO THE CONCLAVE EVEN BEGINNING.

So what is the blockbuster news? Sodomite and pedophile lover Cardinal Danneels of Belgium has just stated ON VIDEO at a launch event for his fully-authorized biography that he openly admits to being a member of a “mafiaclub” – HIS WORD – formed to act against Pope Benedict XVI, that specifically canvassed and organized Bergoglio’s election. This is being reported in the English language sphere by the excellent and reliable journalist Edward Pentin.

Further, in this AUTHORIZED BIOGRAPHY, Danneels, who can only be described as an enthusiastic supporter of horrific sexual perversion and the slaughter of pre-born children, admits that the election of Bergoglio was organized YEARS in advance by the so-called “San Gallo Mafiaclub” for the express purpose of pushing through a hyper-radical and utterly heretical “reform” agenda centered around the ratification of perverted sex acts.

Citation from an Italian newspaper here.  You can run it through googletranslate.

Lifesitenews.com has all manner of reportage on the truly despicable Danneels.  You can start here, in which there is an audio recording of Danneels telling a boy to keep his mouth shut about being raped by a bishop – who also happened to be the boy’s uncle.  Yeah. This Danneels is a real piece of shit.

Bergoglio has also HANDPICKED Danneels to be the NUMBER TWO MAN at the upcoming Synod on the Family, which is expected to drive the Church into schism.

And it all stands to reason.  As we have discussed here over the last 2.5 years, Bergoglio is a thug, and the Church is pretty much completely infiltrated with people who DON’T ACTUALLY BELIEVE ANY OF IT.  So, why would a power and earthly glory-hungry thug like Bergoglio, or a bunch of filthy, child-raping fags WHO DON’T ACTUALLY BELIEVE IN ANY OF IT be even the tiniest bit affected by the Law of the Church?  It’s a PUNCHLINE to them.  Why would we think that these people are internally constrained in any way for fear of a paradigm in which they DO NOT BELIEVE???

This effeminate, pollyanna worldview can no longer be defended.  It’s just stupid. This has been prophesied by none other than THE MOTHER OF GOD, and frankly, how could one NOT want for this nightmare to be somehow thwarted? Is normalcy bias so strong that the systematic destruction of western civilization and the Church has to be not just ACCEPTED, but defended as NOMINAL?

Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.

Mary, Mother of the Church, pray for us.

Christ, have mercy on us.




Something for the Catholic Wonks: Ottaviani, Not Paul VI, Probably Wrote the Good Bits of Humanae Vitae

This is for the wonks.  I heard this recently and it desperately needs to be written up academically, which is NOT my vocation.  But I can call it out, I reckon.

The deal is this: Paul VI originally capitulated to the Pontifical Commission on Birth Control and wrote Humanae Vitae as *PRO* contraception.  When the draft came to CDF, Ottaviani “intervened” again, and re-wrote the key parts.  They are easy for scholars to pick out of the text because they are Thomistic, and Montini was, of course, NOT A THOMIST, to put it mildly.

This, of course, explains completely why everyone was “shocked” that Paul VI maintained the consistent teaching of the Church – because he was known to be on the side of the infiltrators, and had probably told them privately that he intended to ratify birth control.

And it explains completely why Paul VI Montini not only failed to enforce his own Encyclical, but beyond that why he actually cracked down on efforts by faithful bishops and cardinals who attempted to defend MONTINI’S OWN DOCUMENT against open dissent by clergy in the months and years after.

It wasn’t really “his”.  The admirable passages in Humanae Vitae, including the condemnation of contraception that we have for so long cited as the “one good aspect” of the Montini pontificate, weren’t Montini’s, and he didn’t believe any of it himself.

It was, once again, Cardinal Ottaviani.  The same Cardinal Ottaviani who shredded the Novus Ordo Mass in the now-famous Ottaviani Intervention.

Pray for us.

Pray for us.

This. Explains. Much.

Academics, and you know who you are, PLEASE get this written up and into the academic record before Francis “canonizes” That Man (TM). It won’t stop the farce, but at least the objection and protest will have been lodged.

Soft target opening.  You have to see it and respond FAST. But I can’t.  I’m just an old cleaning woman.

“I love you. I miss you. Come visit every day.”

The Eucharist is God saying perpetually to every human being on earth, whether they like it or not, “I love you. I miss you. Come visit every day.”

So no matter what happens to you, Someone loves you, Someone misses you, and Someone wishes you would come visit Him every day. Which is a pretty wonderful thing, no?

Too bad almost nobody today knows or cares.
