Barnhardt Podcast #014: Interest Rate Manipulation: The Stealth Weapon of Mass Destruction

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this inaugural Barnhardt Financial Podcast, we address two main topics. First, we discuss the wisdom of the 7 year mortgage as a maximum loan term on a home, and walk through examples and consequences of the responsible use of debt. Next, we delve into the use of interest rates as literal weapons of mass destruction, the silent and extremely coercive “nuclear weapon” being held over every economy by the Deep State via central banks. Specifically, we look at the current threat of economic Armageddon being held over Italy as it is being coerced via threats of interest rate manipulation into importing and quartering the very islamic invasion force that was repelled at Lepanto in 1571 and Vienna in 1683.

This week’s Financial Math Example:

If you pay $100,000 for a bond position and its yield is 2%, it will pay $2000 per year in interest regardless of market price changes so long as you hold it and do not sell it.

If a bond issuer is likely to default (that is, risk increases), the yield goes up and the market price goes down. If yield goes up to 10%, what is the price such that 10% of that price is $2000?

P x 0.10 = $2000
P = $2000/0.10
P = $20,000

If yield goes from 2% to 10%, yield has increased by a factor of 5.
0.10 / 0.02 = 5

Therefore, market price must DECREASE by same factor:

$100,000 / 5 = $20,000

Barnhardt Podcast #013: Fatherhood in Crisis

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss the crisis resulting from a lack of fatherhood and how it can be observed in the Church and in Japan. In the Church: the anti-Papacy of Jorge Bergoglio is dividing and scattering the sheep as perennial Truths are being diminished, ignored, and even contradicted. In Japan: the crisis of narcissism manifested through immature males who only think of themselves is threatening to bring about extinction through a lack of procreation.

Letter From an Absentee Father to His Children

Dear Children,

It has been over four years since I abandoned you and declared myself your “father emeritus”, but I wanted to write this letter to you in the hopes that it would console you.  As I said when I was walking out the door, I have not ceased to be your father, I have just chosen to only be your father in the passive, contemplative, inactive, absentee sense. After all, who is to say how many “fathers” a child can have?  What’s important is not who is or is not your father, but rather what fatherhood MEANS.  Fatherhood for me means withdrawing from the active duties of fatherhood while maintaining the spiritual aspect, and in doing this, stepping aside and making way for another man to become your “active father”.  In doing this, I have expanded fatherhood, thus permanently transforming fatherhood into a collegial, synodal paradigm. At least, that is what I tell myself.

I want you to know that I am fully aware that since I abandoned Your Mother and all of you, that a raging psychopath calling himself your “active father”  has moved into your house and is now raping and beating Your Mother before your eyes on a daily basis. I am also aware that he is beating you, emotionally abusing you, poisoning you, and is exposing you to his cabal of friends, almost all of whom are sodomites/boy rapists.

I want you to know that I am aware of this, and assure you of my closeness to you in prayer.  I hope this consoles you.

Further, I want you to know that things are going to get much, much worse.  Don’t ask me how I know this.  Let’s just say that when I was still your Active Father, I … was made privy to certain… secrets.

The psychopath and his sodomite/boy raping friends are going to rape and beat Your Mother so badly that it will literally require a supernatural miracle to save her life.  She will not die, but she will be raped and beaten unto death.  All of this will be done before your very eyes.  In fact, the psychopath and his sodomite gang will luxuriate in the fact that you, the children, will see this happen.

As for you, my dear, dear children, many of you will not survive this.  You will be beaten, berated, poisoned and some of you will also be raped.  For many of you, this abuse and terror will be so intense that you will abandon Your Mother and commit de facto suicide.  Others of you will turn into exactly the same kind of psychopathic monsters as your “active father” and his gang.  The only promise I can make to you is that at least ONE of you will survive.  It is possible that ALL BUT ONE of you, my children, will be lost.

But take heart!  I am aware of what is happening to you, and I am close to you in prayer.

Now, you may be wondering why it is that I don’t call the police, notify someone, or take any action against the psychopath that is raping and beating Your Mother, and trying as hard as he can to kill all of you.

This is rather difficult to explain, and even more difficult to write, but I will try to explain it simply.  You see, while I am completely responsible for abandoning you, I am also largely responsible for creating the psychopath that is now calling himself your “active father”, all of his sodomite/boy raping gang, and the entire matrix within which they subsist.

In order for me to help you, I would have to admit that not only did I make a terrible, terrible mistake – in fact, in Law it is called a “SUBSTANTIAL ERROR”, but I would also have to admit that my entire adult life, going back at least 55 years now, was built upon a completely erroneous and false worldview even down to the level of metaphysics.  While I would never do the things that the psychopath who calls himself your “active father” is doing to Your Mother or to any of you children, I did work very hard years ago to create the environment of which he and his gang are a direct product.  And then, four years ago, I ran away to be your “father emeritus” and left the door standing wide open, and the psychopath and his gang walked into Our Family Home, and began their program of systematic rape and murder.

Now, kids, I love you, but I’m sure you understand that I simply cannot admit to any of these mistakes, no matter how glaringly obvious they are, and no matter how badly all of you and Your Mother are hurt by them.  To say that my entire adult life and work has been not just merely erroneous, but has been, quite possibly, the most catastrophic thing ever to happen to Our Family is simply impossible.  No one could expect me to humiliate myself like that, and nothing is worth that kind of humiliation.  Nothing.  I’m sure you all understand the position I am in.  This is why I can’t say anything, much less call the police or alert any of your uncles.  Not that alerting your uncles would help – there are only a handful left that aren’t in the psychopath’s gang, and all of your good uncles are effeminate and no good in a fight anyway. Very much like me.

I hope that while Your Mother is being raped and beaten unto death, and you yourselves are picked-off one by one, that you will be consoled knowing that I have been saved any public humiliation, and, I repeat, that I am fully aware of what is happening to you, and that I am close to you in prayer.

My advice is, appease the psychopath that calls himself your “active father”, and maybe he will kill you last. That’s what I am going to do.

Pray for me, and be consoled by my awareness of what is happening to you and my closeness to you in prayer-

Your “Contemplative Father Emeritus” (at least that’s what I call myself)

Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger, the one and only living Pope, and by far the worst Pope in history.


Barnhardt Podcast #012: Antipope Bergoglio Calls For Abolition of All Sovereign Nations of Europe

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss the economic scam that is “Obamacare” and how it necessarily leads to concentration of government spending and power — and that now Jorge Bergoglio is calling for a “United States of Europe” to supplant the sovereignty of independent nations (in contrast to Catholic social teaching which favors subsidiary and smaller political entities). We also talk about a recent news article involving Cardinal Mueller which further demonstrates a recurring theme: “they” — including “Call me Jorge” — simply don’t believe the Truths of the Catholic Faith.

Quote to ponder: “The Economy of Grace can be compared to the power grid, and we’re dealing with constant rolling brown-outs and black-outs these days.”

On Effeminacy 2: Lovers of Pleasures More Than of God. Now These Avoid.

Know also this, that, in the last days, shall come dangerous times. Men shall be lovers of themselves, covetous, haughty, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, wicked, Without affection, without peace, slanderers, incontinent, unmerciful, without kindness, Traitors, stubborn, puffed up, and lovers of pleasures more than of God: Having an appearance indeed of godliness, but denying the power thereof. Now these avoid.

2 Timothy 3: 1-5

In the first installment of this series, we isolated what effeminacy is NOT, namely femininity or faggotry. So, what is effeminacy? St. Thomas Aquinas uses the words “softness” and “delicacy” as his main descriptors. By “delicacy”, Thomas means a man who cannot endure any toil or anything that diminishes pleasure. In our contemporary parlance the word “wimp” might be a more illuminating choice. If we look at St. Thomas’ words in the Summa in Article 1 of Question 138 of the Second Part of the Second Part, we see that at the core of the vice of effeminacy is a pathological aversion to a lack of pleasure, that is to say, an aversion to anything even remotely unpleasant, most especially any sort of exertion (work) or voluntary suffering.

Check those last two words: voluntary suffering. Do you see why effeminacy is pretty much the existential antipode to Christianity? Do you see why the weapon satan has used in this the “Battle of the Pelennor Fields” against the Church has been an infiltration of effeminate men who have spent the last 50 years preaching a “new gospel” wherein the cardinal false virtue is EFFEMINACY? Effeminacy simply cannot be reconciled to Christianity. It is contrary to the very foundations and core of the Truth of Christ. To wit:

Matthew 16: 24-25 Then Jesus said to His disciples: If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For he that will save his life, shall lose it: and he that shall lose his life for My sake, shall find it.

Matthew 5: 5 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

Matthew 5: 10-12 Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye when they shall revile you, and persecute you, and speak all that is evil against you, untruly, for My sake: Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is very great in heaven. For so they persecuted the prophets that were before you.

John 15: 18-20 If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated Me before you. If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember My word that I said to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.

Matthew 24: 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall put you to death: and you shall be hated by all nations for My Name’ s sake.

2 Timothy 3: 12 And all that will live godly in Christ Jesus, shall suffer persecution.

Let me now put up a list of bullet points of how effeminacy manifests, and we will then go down the list in future installments discussing in depth each example and how they are manifesting in today’s post-Christian, Modernist world and in AntipopeBergoglioNewWorldOrderChurchOfMan.

Effeminacy manifests as, in no particular order:

  • A pathological refusal to deal with objective reality (intense normalcy bias, self-delusion)
  • Hatred of exertion
  • An intense aversion to helping others (because helping almost always involves exertion)
  • The refusal to voluntarily take on ANY hardship, discomfort, or… wait for it… SUFFERING
  • Lashing out at virile people as a defense mechanism
  • Need for human respect
  • Hypersensitivity, easily “triggered”, often in “pissy moods”
  • Intense judgmentalism and hyper-criticality
  • Inordinate attachment to money – tightfistedness, stinginess
  • Intense selfishness and self-absorption
  • Sense of entitlement, especially to other peoples’ money
  • Narcissism, both grandiose and vulnerable
  • Incessant bitching, criticizing and complaining while refusing to act or charitably instruct others
  • Shunning personal responsibility, most especially taking responsibility for the actions of others or for no-fault accidents
  • Perpetual victimhood, oftentimes due to premeditated self-sabotage
  • Reducing Christianity to the merely theoretical, confined exclusively to the domain of ideas, utterly divorced from concrete action
  • Liturgical fetishism, “empty eggshell” Catholicism

On Effeminacy 1: Defining the Term

Where. To. Begin.

(Heavy sigh, rubs face, pops knuckles….)

The definition. Always good to start with the definition.

~ Effeminacy is the vice of softness that is opposed to perseverance. ~

But let’s expand on that so that you can understand what exactly that means.

First two things that effeminacy is NOT:

Effeminacy is NOT femininity. In modern parlance, “effeminate” is often used to mean “feminine”. This is flatly incorrect. Femininity, the quality of being female, is a good thing. We know this from the great “Hubba-hubba!” of Adam when he first saw Eve in Genesis 2. Also, from Our Lady, who is the pinnacle of femininity.

But femininity is the exclusive asset and domain of females, and men who claim it and manifest it are deluded, mentally ill perverts. Like Bruce Jenner. Further, since effeminacy is a vice, it can be manifested by both men and women.

Oh yeah. Effeminacy in women is just as wrong as in men, the difference being that the sight of effeminacy in men is so much more disturbing that it tends to be magnified in our minds. It is more disturbing because it is more contrary to masculine nature. The best example in reverse that I can think of is drunkenness. Which is a more jarring sight: a man that is s___faced drunk, or a woman in that condition? Drunkenness in a woman is more jarring to see because it is more contrary to her feminine nature, but drunkenness is equally wrong in both men and women. Also the use of coarse language. (Cough cough, I resemble that remark.)

Effeminacy is also NOT a synonym for faggotry. If we were to draw a Venn Diagram of effeminate males in a given population compared to sodomitically-oriented males, which for brevity’s sake we will henceforth refer to as “fags”, in that population, first, the effeminate domain circle would be at least 50x larger than the fag circle, because in this post-Christian culture there are way, way, way more effeminate heterosexual (straight) men than dudes who lust after other dudes. (I know you don’t buy this right now, but stay with me.)

Second, we would see that the Fag circle would NOT exist entirely inside the Effeminacy circle. This is a very important point, especially in terms of history, tyrannical governments, wars and genocides. It ain’t no coinkydink that the biggest murdering, genociding, evil tyrant bastards in history have been enthusiasts for the butt___ks.

Y’all have read “The Pink Swastika” and know that the core founders of the Nazi Party, including Herr Hitler himself, were all raging sodomites, right? But here is the distinction: they were butch and not effeminate. In fact, the homosexuals that ended up being purged in the Night of the Long Knives or sent to concentration camps were the feminine, swishy, flaming fags. The Nazis were not “soft”, effeminate men and were thus extremely aggressive and effective at implementing their satanic agenda. The same could be said for the fags that have been running the islamic political system since day one. Likewise for the Samurai culture and Sparta. History hath shewn time and time again that the most dangerous fags to civilization on a macro level are the fags that present as masculine and are, in fact, NOT effeminate.

In the next installment, we will discuss what effeminacy is, how St. Thomas Aquinas defines it, what its opposite is, and we will begin to discuss how effeminacy manifests itself in our culture today, both in men and women.

Handful of Remaining Catholics In the Vatican Have Essentially Given Up.

When my email box started filling up yesterday with the reportage of the sodomite orgy that the police broke up in the Vatican, I was reminded that many of you are not checking regularly. is the Drudge Report equivalent news aggregator of Traditional Catholicism.  The editor, Frank Walker, does a fantastic job of finding straight journalism and reportage, editorial content, and interesting blogs.  He generally updates the site twice per day.  The reason I mention this is because the Vatican gay orgy news broke a week ago.  I made a post on it titled, “When I Say the Vatican Is A Bathhouse, I’m Not Exaggerating” on June 28th. It is just that it took the real Drudge a week to pick up the story and publicize it to the mainstream.  As I write this, it is a top headline with three links on Drudge.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The past two years or so have been EXTREMELY illuminating on this topic.  The sodomites are EVERYWHERE in the Vatican, transcending all “right-left”, “liberal-Traditional” and all other categories and spectra.  In fact, many of the most diabolical and sacriligious sex perverts inside the Vatican, of which actual, real, practicing Satanists are a subset, hide not only amongst leftist groups such as the Jesuits, but so many are hiding among what are branded as “conservative” groups such as Opus Dei and the Legionaries of Christ, which are actually two of the most powerful and wealthy organized crime syndicates today. There are also, as we have discussed, many sodomites amongst people, both clerics and laity, attached to the Traditional Rites, both the Roman Rite and the Byzantine Rite in Rome.  Remember folks, for sodomites, the top priority is the sodomy.  For them, sourcing sex partners/victims and the code of silence, or “omertà” which perpetuates the paradigm, trumps everything, including politics, and certainly any liturgical paradigms or preferences.  This is why “tribalism” is so spectacularly dangerous.

Which brings us to the sad truth.  I have very high-level and unimpeachable sources in Rome who have recently said that among the handful of remaining Catholics in the Curia, including senior-level officials (that category could literally be counted on one hand – do the math), there is now a resignation to the fact that the infiltration of sodomites and Freemasons (that Venn Diagram has a massive overlap) is so severe that it is not humanly possible to remove the infiltration.  This can ONLY be solved by supernatural means, which all understand means a Sodom and Gomorrah type event, except on a much, much larger scale. Massive destruction, with many, many people dying on a level never before seen by mankind, just as the Blessed Mother has warned so many times, particularly over the past century.

Think about it.  If there are literally just a handful men in the Vatican, which is a massive, bloated, corrupt bureaucracy, that are NOT Freemasons and/or sodomites, that implies that in order to purge the infestation well north of NINETY PERCENT of the people in the Vatican would have to be permanently expelled.  And what of the entire college of bishops?  FAR North of 90% of them would need to be fired and purged.  And what of the priesthood?  Same.  And what of the staffs in the chanceries all over the world?  Same.



Bottom line, start praying for the Blessed Virgin to hold back the arm of her Son no longer.  Let the supernatural purge and cleanse come, even if that means that most of us will die in it.  This spitting in the face of Christ and the raping of His Holy Church must stop. We’ve heard enough about the rights of men.  Let us now return our focus to what we should have been focused on all along: the rights of God – to paraphrase Pope Leo XIII.

In the mean time, we must focus on INDIVIDUAL SOULS.  Explain what is happening.  Tell people the truth – the blunt, clear, unvarnished truth – no matter how “ugly” it may be.  First and foremost we should be explaining to people that Bergoglio is an Antipope, and that Pope Benedict XVI remains the one and only living pope.  That true premise is essential to building the rest of the case on a valid logical truth table. The truth of Catholicism falls flat on its face if a man who is not the pope is called the pope, which then necessitates the secondary false premise that the papacy is irrelevant, and that Christ’s promises to Peter, and thus to all of mankind, were either lies, or had an unknowable expiration date. BLASPHEMY!

Remember, nothing is as “ugly” as Christ Crucified, and Christ Crucified is the most beautiful thing that has ever happened because it is Christ’s total outpouring of Love for man. Good luck explaining Christianity without ever mentioning Our Blessed Lord’s Passion and Death.

What I would personally like to see, and what I think could go a LONG WAY in helping people to understand what is going on, and thus help people either revert or convert to the One True Church, are hidden camera stings such as what James O’Keefe at Project Veritas and David Daleiden at the Center For Medical Progress have been doing.  I would hasten to mention that taking any sort of recording device into a confessional under any circumstance and for any motive is grave sin and can never, ever, ever be done.  It would be aping the Sacrament, and that is grave sin, no matter your motive. However, I would like to see hidden cameras taken into the Vatican and have the real words and deeds of these wretches splashed all over the internet.  I would like to see hidden camera tapes of sacriligious sexual propositions publicized.  Good grief, it wouldn’t be difficult.  The Vatican is a de facto BATHHOUSE. They aren’t playing checkers and polishing the silver in there all day.  The same with local chanceries and even seminaries.  Let’s get video out of seminarians sitting on the Bishop’s or the seminary rector’s lap.  Let’s get hidden camera footage of clerics and laymen flirting in the sacristy.

We need a James O’Keefe.  We need a Lila Rose.

Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.

Watermelon, Tobasco and Ire


“Only the person who becomes irate without reason, sins. Whoever becomes irate for a just reason is not guilty. Because, if ire were lacking, the science of God would not progress, judgments would not be sound, and crimes would not be repressed.

Further, the person who does not become irate when he has cause to be, sins. For an unreasonable patience is the hotbed of many vices: it fosters negligence, and stimulates not only the wicked, but above all the good, to do wrong.”
(St. John Chrysostom, Homily XI super Matheum, 1c, nt.7)


“Ire may be understood in two ways.

In one way, as a simple movement of the will that inflicts punishment not through passion, but by virtue of a judgment of the reason: and in this case, without a doubt, lack of ire is a sin. This is how Chrysostom understands ire when he says: ‘Ire, when it has a cause, is not ire but judgment. For properly speaking, ire is a movement of passion. And when a man is irate with just cause, his ire does not derive from passion. Rather, it is an act of judgment, not of ire.”

In another way, ire can be understood as a movement of the sensitive appetite agitated by passion with bodily excitation. This movement is a necessary sequel in man to the previous movement of his will, since the lower appetite naturally follows the movement of the higher appetite unless some obstacle prevents it. Hence the movement of ire in the sensitive appetite cannot be lacking altogether, unless the movement of the will is altogether lacking or weak. Consequently, the lack of the passion of ire is also a vice, as it is the lack of movement in the will to punish according to the judgment of reason.”
(St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologiae, II, II, q. 158, art. 8)


“We’ve had enough of exhortations to be silent! Cry out with a hundred thousand tongues. I see that the world is rotten because of silence.”
-St. Catherine of Siena, Doctor of the Church



I will be using “Pseudogamy” instead of “gay marriage” or any other form that gives even the slightest whiff of legitimacy to these filthy sodomites aping the sacrament of marriage in their narcissistic, prideful, rebellion against God.  Pseudo means, of course, “not genuine, or sham”, from the Greek meaning “false”.  The root “gamy” means “of or pertaining to marriage and/or fertilization”, also from the Greek.  So, false, sham marriage.  Yep.


A note from “Mr. B” of Barnhardt Podcast #011 fame, beginning at the 43:58 mark:

Hi, Ann.

Many thanks to you and SuperNerd for so thoroughly addressing my question on yesterday’s podcast. I noted well your comment that the solution to my situation was latent in my question. You have helped me to see that, elucidated many angles to the issue that I hadn’t fully considered, and helped me to realize acutely the stand I must take.

Thanks again.

In Christ,

“Mr. B”

In case you haven’t checked out the Podcast, Mr. B has a sodomite in his extended family, complete with pseudogamous accomplice, and he is literally the only person left in his entire family that has a problem with this grave scandal.  He asked for thoughts and advice.  We had plenty to offer.


I really appreciated the precision Mark Docherty over at NonVeniPacem made about Absolute Certitude, Legal Certitude and Moral Certitude in his post about the invalidity of Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger’s attempted “partial resignation”, and the Bergoglian Antipapacy.

In particular, it seemed to me that his explanation that with regards to Moral Certitude, the level of proof is actually INVERSE to the gravity of the situation was especially important.  That seems backward when one is first confronted with it, but I thought of an example that might help folks understand the concept.

Let’s say you walk into a kitchen and see a two-year old sitting in front of the kitchen sink with the under cabinet doors open, holding a big plastic bottle with the cap off, getting ready to put the bottle to his mouth and drink.

Do you need to run scientific tests on the content of the bottle before you act?

Do you need to consult with any other human being on the planet before you act, including the child’s parents?

No.  You must act, and you must act IMMEDIATELY. You are morally certain that the child is in grave, grave danger, and thus you are morally obligated to cry out and physically lunge at the child, remove the bottle from his hands, and prevent him from possibly poisoning himself.  This action has a low risk of harm, and a very high probability of doing good.  Even with only the evidence of your eyes, and only the context of the child’s position, and the traditional placing of cleaning chemicals under the kitchen sink, this is MORE than enough to oblige a person to act swiftly and with maximum force.  You WILL get that bottle out of that child’s hands NOW.


Mark your calendars!  Set an alarm!

The Holy and August Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered in the Venerable Gregorian Rite according to the Missal of Pius V for the reversion to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church for Mike Pence and Family on THURSDAY, JULY 6, at 5:00PM EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME.

Please attach yourself to this Mass and pray for the Pence family and for the priest who will be offering the Mass.


Ending on a happy note, I have discovered a delicious, healthy and cheap culinary delight:  Watermelon marinated in Tobasco.  I saw this as a part of a salad/appetizer on a menu recently and said to myself, “That is either completely delicious, or completely nasty, and my Spidey-sense tells me that is it probably delicious.”

Sure enough… JACKPOT!

This is now a go-to snack, especially in the morning to get the ol’ metabolism fired up.  I recommend buying the BIG BOTTLE of Tobasco at the store.

Starting Tuesday Off Right: Naked Deformity Edition

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.

St. Irenaeus of Lyons, Born ARSH 130, Died ARSH 202. Student of St. Polycarp, who was in turn a disciple of the Apostle John.

Error, indeed is never set forth in its naked deformity, lest, being thus exposed, it should at once be detected. But it is craftily decked out in an attractive dress, so as, by its outward form, to make it appear to the inexperienced more true than truth itself.
-St. Irenaeus of Lyons

“If we speak explicitly about communion for the divorced and remarried, you do not know what a terrible mess we will make. So we won’t speak plainly, do it in a way that the premises are there, then I will draw out the conclusions.”
Archbishop Bruno Forte, quoting Antipope Bergoglio

Another Trad Blog Acknowledges Pope Ratzinger Is Only Living Pope, Bergoglio an Antipope

NonVeniPacem, after a year of refuting the so-called “Barnhardt Thesis” in Trad circles, has publicly acknowledged that he is now morally certain that Pope Benedict’s attempted partial resignation was wholly invalid due to substantial error per Cannon 188, and that Bergoglio is an Antipope.

Welcome to reality.  Jump in, the water’s freezing! (But in a refreshing, invigorating, one might even say vivifying way….)


What practically changes in one’s life when this truth is acknowledged? Well, one prays for the actual Pope (Benedict) at the Te Igitur, prays for Pope Benedict in the Rosary every day, and prays for the recognition and removal of Antipope Bergoglio qua Antipope, and for Bergoglio’s repentance and reversion to Catholicism, that he die in a state of grace and achieve the Beatific Vision. Also, everything happening in the Vatican makes perfect sense, and is in no way scandalous in the sense of tempting one to lose faith in Jesus Christ and His Holy Catholic Church. Truth eliminates scandal, even when the Truth is ugly. It’s a paradox, of which Christianity is replete.
