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.

Repost By Request: They Don’t Actually Believe Any Of That “Bullshit”

(One of the reasons this piece is so prescient is the opening quote – the degenerate Cardinals made it very, very clear and without the least hint of shame that their intention is to change the praxis of the Church so that it is in diametrical opposition to the teaching of the Church, the truth, and Our Lord Himself. Satan knows that the Church is protected by the Holy Ghost and cannot formally teach error in matters of faith or morals or change dogma. Thus, satan’s strategy, being carried out by his minions (let us pray that their service to satan is UNWITTING), is to end-run and avoid completely the whole question of attempting to formally change anything, but merely to change by threats, bribes and general bullying, the PRAXIS.

If satan is trying to get as many people as possible to receive the Eucharist in mortal sin, dontcha think that MAYBE receiving the Eucharist unworthily is EXTREMELY EXTREMELY BAD? And maybe we should all be taking this just a TOUCH more seriously ourselves?

–**–

“In truth, the most salient fact of contemporary Catholic life in the West is the way it is pervaded by the pattern of saying things and then acting as if something else were true.”
-Michael Brendan Dougherty

(I’m learning, slowly. Everything below that is sarcasm or the voice of a liar, heretic or apostate is in GREEN.)

Indeed. This sentence, penned earlier this week* by a secular columnist almost sums up what pretty much everyone is too cowardly to say. In fact, it is the base premise underlying the derivative statement above that is the real 800 pound gorilla sitting squarely in the middle of the room. And, since it is my job to state with all of the bluntness, clarity and precision I can muster the objective truths that no one else will say, I’ll say it. I’ll answer the question: Why do Catholics today, including and most especially clergy and religious going all the way to the TOP, say one thing and then act as if something else were true?

Because they apparently don’t actually believe any of it.

Now, you can squirm and call me uncharitable all you like, but deep down you know just as well as I do that if you were able to corner the vast majority of these people at a cocktail party where they would open up to you honestly, OF COURSE they don’t believe in the Divinity of Christ. OF COURSE they don’t believe in the concept of sin, much less Original Sin, and certainly not in any sort of judgment by a personal deity, much less the ridiculous fictions of hell or damnation. OF COURSE they don’t believe in the Mass as The Holy and August Sacrifice of Calvary Made Present, and CERTAINLY not in the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. I mean, come on, this is all a bunch of medieval bullshit that a bunch superstitious neanderthals used to oppress and control each other up until we “sang a newchurch into being” in 1965 after Saint Second Vatican Council incarnated in the hearts of men on October 11, 1962, and then ascended on December 8, 1965, thus liberating modern man from nineteen centuries of monumentally embarrassing and oppressive crackpot voodoo bullshit.

It doesn’t matter what the Mass was like before, and it doesn’t matter what the Fathers and Saints taught before, because MANKIND ITSELF was different, and not just different but INFERIOR. Thus everything “old” is just a bunch of bullshit, and everything “new” is good, and thus the Church must also be new, and thus different. None of that ridiculous old bullshit can possibly speak to the new, superior modern man, who, being liberated from nineteen centuries of bullshit, can now “encounter” Christ and “dialogue” with “him” as an equal. Anyone who takes any interest at all in any of that archaic nonsense must then, by definition, be of sub-standard intelligence at best, and TOTALLY UNCOOL at worst. You don’t want to be UNCOOL, do you? You don’t want to be THROWN OUT OF SEMINARY, do you? You don’t want to be disdained and sneered at and mocked behind your back by your professors, superiors and peers, do you? You don’t want to be exiled to some *gasp* RURAL parish, do you? You don’t want to be demoted from being Chief Justice of the Vatican Supreme Court to a purely ceremonial position as the Patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, do you? You don’t want people to think that you ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT BULLSHIT, right?

Modern man, having moved beyond and having been liberated from the bullshit, can now act as his own arbiter of truth, conceptualizing the notions of good and evil within himself, and truth, goodness and beauty are now negotiable and dynamic. Modern man need not rely upon or even be informed by strict, rigid, antiquated, superstitious teaching (the bullshit), but now, in his superiority, can confidently rely on how things make him FEEL, and thus liberate himself and others from the bullshit, and thus stop obsessing over minutiae and trivia, and start worrying about the things that really matter: giving the state the power to redistribute wealth and incur incalculable debt so that unlimited amounts of free shit can be “given” to “poor people”, thus eliminating material inequality which is the root of social evil, and, of course, climate change. And also maintaining the cash flow from the church tax in Germany.

The concepts of “mercy” and “charity” must be redefined as “PERMISSIVENESS born from INDIFFERENCE” according to the new order – the exact opposite of their antiquated and oppressive pre-St. Vatican II bullshit meanings.

Ladies and gentlemen, in the eyes of these people there is today only one sin, and that sin is actually believing what the Catholic Church teaches. It embarrasses them. It embarrasses them to the point of rage.

Over Passiontide I came across several pieces on the web speculating as to the motives behind Judas Iscariot’s betrayal of Our Lord. One surmised that Judas loved Our Lord so much that he wanted to force the hand of the Romans and Jews and bring about the installation of Christ as an earthly king. Another postulated mere greed as the core motive. No, no, no. We are told in John 6 exactly why Judas betrayed Our Lord.

Judas was EMBARRASSED by Our Blessed Lord. And there is nothing in this world that stokes and fans the flames of hatred as quickly and violently as EMBARRASSMENT.

John 6. The Eucharistic Discourse. Let me recount the events briefly. This moment is the “height” of Jesus’ earthly ministry in terms of popularity. He has drawn a crowd of five thousand men (verse 10), which means that when women and children were counted there were even more than that. Anyway, at minimum five thousand people have spontaneously gathered around Him. This is impressive to say the least. Judas and the other Apostles are STOKED and are seriously starting to think about Jesus somehow being made king and expelling the Romans, and all of the perks that go along with being a member of the inner circle of a KING. Then Jesus performs the Miracle of the Extremely Miraculous Breaking the Laws of Physics By Multiplying Matter Totally, Completely Miraculously Miracle of the Loaves and Fishes. OH. MY. GOSH. Serious momentum building now. This is so cool. He’s gonna be king and we’re gonna be PRINCES. And then…

You must eat My Flesh and drink My Blood.” Over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

And all the people start saying, “What in the WORLD is He talking about?”

Hearing and seeing the thousands and thousands of people pretty much freaking out at His words, and, you know, being God Incarnate and omniscient and all, He then repeats it with more clarity and force. “For My Flesh is meat indeed: and My Blood is drink indeed. He that eateth My Flesh, and drinketh My Blood, abideth in Me, and I in him.” In fact, the verb He uses switches from “to eat” to the verb “to gnaw or to chew”. 

At this point the entire crowd, who just a few minutes prior were totally on board with the program, and would have been the vectors of a likely movement to put Jesus on the Throne of David, almost to the man get up and leave. “C-ya. We OUT. Y’all cray-cray. As in dangerously mentally ill. We can’t deal with this circus. We have lives to lead.”

And why did they leave? Because Our Blessed Lord just told them about His Real Presence in the Eucharist – that bread and wine would be transubstantiated such that their substance would actually become the substance of God that we could physically eat and thus take into our own bodies – because that is how much He loves us.

The other eleven Apostles are CONFUSED to be sure (aren’t we all), but they know who Jesus is, and their faith, despite their near-total confusion, keeps them from abandoning Him. Jesus walks over to them, and instead of saying, “Aw, shucks, I was just talking symbolically,” as the protestant heresy would have Him do, He gets up in their faces and forces them to make an Act of Faith right then and there: “Then Jesus said to the twelve: Will you also go away?

At this point Peter makes one of the greatest Acts of Faith in all of human history, up there with the Fiat of the Blessed Virgin at the Annunciation and the near-sacrifice of Isaac by Abraham: “And Simon Peter answered Him: Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life. And we have believed and have known, that Thou art the Christ, the Son of God.”

Backing up to verse 65, we see Judas who was so utterly EMBARRASSED by Our Lord’s revelation to mankind of the Holy Eucharist, and the near-instantaneous loss of the power base that Judas, just a few short minutes before, envisioned elevating him to a princely throne with all of the wealth and power and popularity-by-association that would come with it, that he is enraged, and is already plotting to betray Jesus. “But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning, who they were that did not believe, and who he was, that would betray Him.”

Please note that the metric here is not UNDERSTANDING, but BELIEF. No one to this day understands the mechanisms of transubstantiation. Got that? It is a mystery how the substance of one thing can be changed into the substance not just of something else, but of God Himself, whilst the accidents (the appearance, taste, etc.) remain.

Absolutely. No. Clue.

None.

It requires faith. Hence, verse 64: “It is the spirit that quickeneth: the flesh profiteth nothing. The words that I have spoken to you, are spirit and life.

Judas Iscariot did not believe in the Holy Eucharist and was thus EMBARRASSED by and ASHAMED of It, which is to say, Our Lord. This embarrassment and shame was instantly converted into anger and hatred of Our Lord.

Ahem. Cough-cough. Is anyone else experiencing a weird deja vu kind of vibe right about now?

Now, bringing it full circle, tell me who you would assign the following quote to: Judas Iscariot or the average modern Catholic?

“How in the hell do you expect us to get anyone to join and support us if you keep talking about this bullshit? This superstitious crap might have flown back in the day, but crazy bullshit like that only drives people away now. You either need to drop that talk all together, or walk it back and tone it way the hell down into some meaningless, non-offensive symbolism or shared community meal meme, or something. Bottom line, you are embarrassing us with this bullshit. STOP EMBARRASSING US.”
And so, ladies and gentlemen, the next time you see or hear something that fits the pattern of “saying things and then acting as if something else were true”, ask yourself if the following simple, glaringly obvious base premise wouldn’t explain absolutely EVERYTHING we are seeing unfold before us in these dark days:

They. Don’t. Actually. Believe. Any. Of. It.

He didn't believe any of that bullshit either....

He didn’t believe any of that bullshit either….

A Letter From Another Good Man Calling It Quits on the Former USA and the Army

(Just over the transom… Emphases mine.)

Dear Ann,

In response to your post “There Must Be A Reckoning” I can only say that I am also one of those who have failed to do justice. I have kept hoping that someone somewhere would notice what was going on and put a stop to it. I have also had the despairing thought of “what can I do about it? I am just one man.”
I spoke with my new Battalion commander this weekend on the subject of arming soldiers who may come under attack by Muslim fanatics. I cited 4th generation warfare theory and he agreed that there are no particular theaters of war any longer. He was at least willing to look into the idea of soldiers defending themselves. The past three officers I have questioned about this have always put their careers before the lives of their men. They have made the calculation that it is more likely that a soldier will fire a round into the floor, ceiling, himself, or another by accident than a Fanatic or terrorist will attack and kill their soldiers and the former situation would be detrimental to their career while the latter would not because in the latter case they were ‘just following orders’ or ‘did all that they could.’
I explained my position thusly: We have a right to defend ourselves recognized and protected by the second amendment, I know that we also swear to obey the orders of our officers, but I am now being put in the position of having to enforce orders that are unconstitutional. I was told by a Sergeant Major that I MUST report any soldier that breaks the law and carries a weapon onto a federal facility. But how can I demand that my soldiers NOT defend themselves against an armed enemy? If I am being forced to choose between prosecuting my soldiers or going to prison for NOT forcing them to give up arms, then I choose not to serve any longer, and I don’t want to do that, because I love the Army, but I will leave if I have to.
In any case, this LT. Colonel is no more fit to command than they, because his entire motivation is pleasing his superiors and accomplishing his mission. That is all fine and good, but does not require any philosophical thought or a time horizon of more than about a year.

I cannot and will not re-enlist (the whole ‘gun’ issue is just the tip of the iceberg). No matter what they dangle in front of me. The US government has effectively become a satanic organization and the best course of action for me is to cease all support for it. I wish I was brave or smart enough to think of something I could do to undermine this monstrosity, but I am a weak and feeble sinner. I hope that simply withdrawing my support for the system, taking the beam from my own eye and obliging them to come to me will be enough.
On a lighter note, A few months back I hinted that I may not re-enlist and stated to my former commander that my morale was low. She seemed surprised and said: “We’re all in trouble if Sergeant X isn’t re-enlisting!”
I smiled along with the chuckles and thought: You don’t know the half of it!

Signed,
Sarge

There Must Be A Reckoning

(Originally penned and posted September 21, ARSH 2011)

The Obama regime has brought the entire planet to critical mass. A triangular imploding collapse appears imminent on the financial front as Keynesian theory coupled with the Cloward-Piven strategy enter their final destructive phase; the military front as Obama’s reformed islamic Caliphate prepares to finish what Hitler started and undo the victories of Charles Martel at Tours and King Jan Sobieski at Vienna; and the cultural front as marriage has been all but destroyed, sodomy is celebrated, and pedophilia is fast-tracked for normalization and decriminalization.

And no one shows even the slightest inclination to do anything to stop, much less punish the Washington DC regime for any of this. And this is precisely the problem.

No society can survive without a firm foundation of justice upon which to anchor itself. Without a foundation of justice, there can be no law, or rule of law. Without the Rule of Law, power and freedom become pure functions of brute force, and morality, societal integrity, financial integrity and true charity, which is to say LOVE in all its forms and contexts, die swift deaths. As Obama’s Manufacturing Czar, Ron Bloom said:

“Generally speaking, we get the joke. We know that the free market is nonsense. We know that the whole point is to game the system, to beat the market, or at least find someone who will pay you a lot of money ’cause they’re convinced that there is a free lunch. We know this is largely about power, that it’s an adults-only no-limit game. We kind of agree with Mao that political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun. And we get it, that if you want a friend, you should get a dog.”
-Ron Bloom
Keynote address at the 6th Annual Distressed Investing Forum, Union League Club, New York, February 27-28, ARSH 2008.

 

(Remember, this was written on September 21, ARSH 2011.) In light of Operation Fast & Furious, the Solyndra scam and the recently-exposed LightSquared attempted subornation of perjury, along with the seeming attempts to bait a full-blown race and class civil war by the Obama regime, I am hard-pressed to think of another collection of 96 words that contain the essence of an entire philosophy with such brutal succinctness and terrifying clarity.

We now see that Bloom meant every word literally. The Washington DC regime has done nothing but game the system in a quest for personal power and wealth. We now know that they view the entire world’s economy and stability as a no-limit game, wherein the chips are in denominations of billions and trillions of dollars and billions of human lives, that they view as theirs for the taking. The Obama regime is nothing if not power hungry, is ramping up rhetoric with an eye towards inciting widespread violence, and perhaps hot war both at home and abroad, and is seemingly devoid of human empathy. For a dog to befriend these people would be a massive condescension on the part of the dog.

In short, these people, with Barack Obama first among them, are arch-criminals. Obama himself is one of the greatest criminals in all of human history. He has illegally usurped the single most powerful office on the planet. He has illegally and fraudulently insinuated himself into the office of Chief Executive of the largest, most powerful economy in all of human history by orders of magnitude, an economy so large and so powerful that its inevitable collapse will affect nearly every person on the planet in a tangibly negative way. He has also criminally commandeered the most powerful military force the world has ever known – also by orders of magnitude. He has hijacked a military arsenal that has the capacity to kill most of the people on this planet. He has also used his criminally-acquired power to destabilize an entire region and culture and foment what will probably become the first truly nuclear world war, centered on Israel and Iran, in which the death toll will be ultimately counted in the hundreds of millions. The scope of this crime is so large that it is difficult for the human mind to grasp it.

We are now firmly in the domain of the Stalin Principle. Josef Stalin famously said, “One death is a tragedy; one million is a statistic.” Obama, and the entire political class in Washington, and really, our entire culture collectively, now obviously determine the moral licitness of an activity solely by its scale. Once a crime surpasses a certain level in terms of scale, it ceases to be constrained by ANY moral matrix.

What’s that, you say? A non-state, non-uniformed enemy belligerent has overthrown the Executive branch and is systematically dismantling our Constitutional Republic? Well, there’s really nothing we can do about that….

What, what? A cadre of Marxists is actively debasing the U.S. dollar and consciously imploding the economy via suicidal spending, money printing and outright looting of the United States Treasury? Well, we’ll just have to wait it out and hope that everything turns out for the best….

How now? These same Marxists are actively facilitating the reforming of the Islamic Caliphate and setting up the destruction of Israel and the Muslim conquering of Europe? Well, we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it….

This apathy and moral impotence is why our nation is crumbling before our very eyes. This is why Western Civilization is imploding. There is no justice, or even a THIRST for justice. In terms of Obama, the worst consequence anyone can bring themselves to discuss is impeachment. Impeachment would be a disaster, because it would unjustly confer legitimacy and Presidential status upon Obama when he is, in fact, NOT the President. Impeachment is the constitutional remedy for removing a legally seated, legitimate President. Obama is neither. But the impeachment proceeding itself, because it would be executed by the House, Senate and Supreme Court, would give Obama a legal “stamp of approval” that he MUST NEVER be given.

Further, the Senate would be charged with voting to convict, and we all know that the moral cowards and outright criminals that now populate the legislative branch would never, ever vote to convict – no matter what the evidence. But let’s assume just for a moment that the Senate DID vote to convict. What would be the consequence to Obama? He would retire either to Hawaii or somewhere in the Middle East to live a life of extravagant wealth, of lazy days filled with ESPN, hard drug use and sodomy. This is exactly the same result that would come from Obama’s defeat in the 2012 election, or Obama’s decision to not seek re-election, OR Obama’s decision to resign at noon tomorrow.

We can no longer permit arch-criminals to evade justice. We MUST shatter the Stalin Principle if we expect our civilization to survive. Barack Obama MUST be arrested, tried as a non-state, non-uniformed enemy belligerent, convicted and punished accordingly for his crime. The MINIMUM punishment possible is a life sentence at the super-max federal prison in Florence, Colorado. Again, this is the MINIMUM acceptable punishment for one of the greatest crimes in human history.  The appropriate punishment is that after trial and conviction, he be offered the Sacraments, and at dawn the next morning be put against a wall and shot.  His body should then be hung and publicly displayed.

I am currently reading a book that should be read by every person now reading this essay. It is called “The Death of Christian Culture” by Dr. John Senior. Penned in 1978, it reads like an exegesis of current events. If you think that “Atlas Shrugged” is a prophetic read, you will be physically and emotionally shaken by “The Death of Christian Culture”. One of the key concepts covered by Dr. Senior is in chapter 7, “To Each His Own”. Beginning on page 108 comes one of the most pristine and refined discussions of the concept of justice that I have ever read. Please indulge me as I now blockquote Dr. Senior. The emphases are mine.

Justice is simply the social good, and it must therefore be done. It is defined as “giving each his due” cuique sum, “to each his own”. A man is due his life because he is a living thing; it is his nature to have life; and, since it is also his nature to be moral, if a man commits a crime, he must be punished because punishment is retributive – punishment is the penalty due the criminal in justice to him. Proportioned punishment is due him, too, and you cannot deny him that right without yourself committing an injustice against him deserving punishment in turn. The judge who fails the criminal in punishment himself incurs a greater guilt.

Because we as a nation and as a culture have failed for over 50 years to properly apply justice to the criminals among us, we have committed crimes against the criminals themselves, our neighbors, ourselves and God. And for that, we are now being punished. Justice will be done.

When Ted Kennedy was permitted to murder Mary Jo Kopechne in 1969 with no punishment whatsoever, Kopechne’s blood was spread from the hands of Kennedy alone to the hands of the entire nation. The same can be said for the blood of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. The same can be said for the crimes of Bill Clinton. In failing to punish Clinton, the matter simply didn’t “go away”. The entire nation is now reaping the whirlwind of allowing Bill Clinton to lie under oath without consequence, and fifty solid years of similar failures in millions of cases, not the least of which are the trillions of dollars stolen by “banksters” and other white-collar criminals to date and the 45 million victims (and counting) of the American abortion holocaust. No justice, no society.

“There is another justification for punishment besides retribution. Pain and deprivation are medicinal. They hurt so much that the criminal can learn that crime does not pay – or at least that the victims pay back. If you want to teach the prisoner a trade or put him to useful work, well and good; but those things are secondary and must never interfere with the first and proper use of punishment, which is the restoration of the equality of justice not only in society but in the person of the criminal. A person who commits a crime has indulged his will against reason; a disequilibrium has been established in his soul, as Plato says, which can only be righted by retributive exercise of reason against his will. The greatest evil in the world is to do wrong without being punished.”

Let us make the assumption for a moment that Ted Kennedy is in hell. It is impossible to know as Christ’s Mercy is infinite and Kennedy MAY have repented of his life of grave sin before his death. If Kennedy is in fact in heaven, he will not mind us using him as an instructive hypothetical example. In fact, he will delight and rejoice in it. If Ted Kennedy is in hell, a massive contributive dynamic to his failure to repent will have been the fact that we, his neighbors, his brothers, failed to punish him and see justice done upon him. Because Kennedy was never made to feel any pain or retributive justice for murdering Mary Jo Kopechne, he was never deeply confronted with his sin, or the fear of what the consequences would be for his immortal soul in the next life – because there were zero consequences in THIS life. In fact, it made him bolder in his sin. If Ted Kennedy is in hell, we are partially complicit in his being there, and justice will be meted out upon US for our failure in charity towards him.

Exactly the same dynamic is in play for Barack Obama and the Washington DC regime in toto. If we surrender Obama to a life of ill-gotten luxury and continued depravity, we will not only be clearing the path and scattering the rose petals for the next arch-criminal, we will also be failing Obama PERSONALLY. This is the truth of Christian Charity, which has exactly nothing to do with being “nice”.

Real Charity is ferocious, fecund and awesome in its vigor and persistence.

Real Charity does not impotently shrug its shoulders and turn its back and walk away. Ever.

Real Charity never says, “Oh, f*** him/her.”

Real Charity says, “Let justice be done upon him.”

They object to punishment itself; and that is because they deny the existence of justice; and that is because they deny that man is free, that man is responsible for his acts. Crime, they say, is sickness. It must be cured, or better, prevented by prophylaxis of the spirit, by the extermination of free will altogether so that men will react like Pavlov’s dogs to sensitivity training and even to psychosurgery and drugs . . . . They say crime is illness. Now if that were true, there could be no moral act whatsoever. If man is not free to choose evil, he is not free to choose good . . . . Everyone must remember the story of the murderer who said in court: “You can’t blame me, it was my heredity and environment that caused me to kill”, and the judge who replied, “It is my heredity and environment that sentences you to hang by the neck until dead.”

Those words were written by John Senior in ARSH 1978. As we watch the arch-criminal, Barack Obama bait a race war, with himself as the poster child in order to retain and advance his own power, and to evade the justice that is due him, remember that the total absence of justice can only lead to the total absence of freedom.

Barack Obama and all of those those complicit in his myriad crimes against the United States and humanity must be arrested, tried and punished as criminals in proper proportion to the enormous scale of their crimes. This isn’t about vengeance. It is about justice.

It is a reckoning.

 

Trying a New Donation Platform and Benefactor Mass 4 of 9 Today

Since having my PayPal account swept last December by team Lois Lerner, I have been receiving donations only via snail mail to the address on the contact page – which is still valid, by the way.  But after the bakery that had the $135k fine levied against it for not baking the cake for the sodomites and their aping of the sacrament of marriage, I noticed that they had moved to a Christian-friendly donation service that does not involve PayPal, ContinueToGive.com .

So, after hemming and hawing over it for months, and with my 6 month rent package on this parking spot expiring at the end of October, I thought we might try, for however long it lasts, the Big Orange Donation Button on the right sidebar – because I am either going to have to re-up here, or move on down the road.  But either way, something is going to have to happen.  Unfortunately, this donation platform requires a plastic card of some sort, but that’s pretty much the only non-PayPal and non-SnailMail solution.

And yes, I am still working at the place where I clean all the things, but far under minimum wage, which is fine.  My wage is just, and I freely choose to exchange my labor for that price. And in my situation, I am grateful for it.

In addition to requests about donations, I have also received inquiries about my Cornerstone Cattle Marketing DVD set.  Yes, it is still able to be purchased.  Send a check for $500 made out to Ann Barnhardt to the address on the contact page with “Cattle Marketing DVD” in the memo, and include your name and shipping address, and my order fulfillment elves will generally drop ship the next business day. Don’t be surprised if the check comes back to you endorsed over to another name.

Today is day 4 of 9 of our Novena of Masses for my benefactors; past, present and future.  The intention, centered around the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, is for the grace of a happy, holy, provided death.

Be assured of my undying gratitude, and prayers.
