Hey, remember the good ol’ days when…

… every single point made herein was considered “crazy talk” instead of “current events”?

Yeah.  Me too.

This video was taken by someone in the back of the room, and there was the wailing and gnashing of teeth when this first came out on YouTube because the entire thing is punctuated by a man laughing and giggling at everything I said.  But you know, I think it is just perfect.  It is an EXACT record of the psychological state of the post-American culture: men tittering nervously while a shrill, yet oddly entertaining gorgon (look it up) who blinks with insufficient frequency tries to sound the alarm.

Starting Tuesday Off Right: St. Clare 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.

clare monstrance

In the year ARSH 1240, the beautiful Italian noblewoman Clare of Assisi who had become a nun after hearing St. Francis preach, saved her convent and all the sisters therein from a massive hoard of musloid invaders – mercenaries from then-musloid Sicily paid by Emperor Frederick II to exert his control over the Italian peninsula.  How did she do it?  With the musloids putting ladders against the walls of the convent preparing to enter and… do what musloids do to women – can you imagine the abject terror the dear sisters and Clare must have felt? – brave Clare went to Our Lord and placed Him in a monstrance and then carried Him herself out to the walls, where she placed Him in view of the musloid mercenaries.  Clare and the sisters then fell down prostrate before Our Lord Jesus Christ, physically, substantially present in the Holy Eucharist, and prayed.  At this sight, a wave of fear crashed over the musloids and they dropped everything, turned, and fled.  The sisters and Assisi were saved.  It was a miracle.

St. Clare of Assisi, repeller of musloid hordes, pray for us.

 

Thinking From a True Premise on Iraq

Imbecile pundits who still can’t get their heads around objective reality are sowing confusion with regards to the overthrow of the government in Iraq.  Let’s state the obvious so that clear, logical, reasoned thinking may follow:

1.  The Obama regime is delighted to see Iraq destabilize because its objective is the reformation of the islamic Caliphate.  Baghdad is now primed to be conquered by ISIS, who are Musloid Brotherhood/Al Qaeda and have been supported and armed by the Obama regime, which is up to its neck in musloid agents.

2.  Additionally, the Obama regime is heavily allied with Turkey, which has as one of its top goals the reconquering of all Kurd territory, and a likely genocide against the Kurds.   Erdogan of Turkey has aspirations to reform the Caliphate as Ottoman-centric, with himself as the Caliph.  He will happily let the ISIS brutes do all of the dirty work in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere and will use them to squeeze the Kurds from the South, and then when ISIS is no longer useful, or excessively dangerous to him, he will slaughter them and declare himself the Caliph of the musloids, enthroned at Istanbul.  I’m sure Obama will be invited to the coronation at the
Hagia Sophia.

3.  Obama the man is a meaningless puppet and always has been.  I don’t know what it is going to take for people to comprehend that the drug-addled, sodomite imbecile is of zero importance to the decision making and strategy being implemented out of the White House, Pentagon and Foggy Bottom.  Sitting around acting all shocked that he is playing golf on the Vineyard with Valerie Jarrett’s cousin and Ahmad Rashad while World War 3 is fomenting is simply idiotic, especially after we are SIX YEARS into this.  The only real relevance Obama the man now has is, as I have bluntly put it, as an “Expendable Faggot” whose false flag assassination by his handlers would ignite the mother of all Reichstag Fires, and which I fear more and more with each passing day.

4.  The Constitutional Republic known as the United States of America is no longer extant, and hasn’t been for years.   It was overthrown in a cold coup by enemies of the now-dead constitutional republic, and of western civilization in general.  The people now running the government headquartered in Washington are malignant psychopaths who view the idea that was “America” and people who associate themselves with that system as “Americans” to be THE ENEMY.  Everything they have done, are doing, and will do has as its aim the destruction of that system and the subjugation and eventual extermination of the people who associate themselves with it.  They are, in fact, exactly the same as ISIS and the musloid political system:  convert, pay the submission tax as long as we deem you economically harvestable, die.  But by all means, please keep telling yourselves that “if we just pick up a few more congressional seats” and “get a guy Like Ted Cruz (whose wife is a Goldman Sachs executive) in”, everything will be fine.  You bet.  Any why don’t you take up thumb-sucking and hair twirling too, while you’re at it, because that will actually be a better use of your time than soaking in a tepid, sulfuric pool of of your own cowardice and self-delusion.

More Ebullient Positivity

1.  If you tell your enemy what you will never do, like say, for example, WAGE WAR, then all you have accomplished, aside from making a complete preening ass out of yourself, is tell your enemy precisely what he must do to defeat you.

If you declare that you will never wage war (who could possibly say anything so breathtakingly STUPID??), then all your enemy need do to defeat you is wage war against you.
If you declare that you will never use nuclear weapons, then all your enemy need do to defeat you is use nuclear weapons against you.
If you declare that you will never, ever strike non-military targets, then all your enemy need do is cache his weapons and launch his attacks from hospitals, schools, churches and civilian neighborhoods.

Good grief, this isn’t hard.

2.  Just as a reminder, as you watch the world descend into war and pestilence, remember, this has all been done intentionally.  The Obama regime is the explicit, conscious, declared enemy of western civilization, and really ALL civilization, and EVERYTHING that the still-braindead pundit class is desperately trying to blame on mere incompetence is no such thing.  All of this, from the implosion of the economy and the healthcare delivery matrix, to the dissolving of the Mexican border and the attendant invasion of disease-ridden welfare recipients/”voters”, mercenaries and terrorists, to the reformation of the islamic caliphate and genocide of Christians (using U.S. weaponry supplied directly and consciously to the Musloid Brotherhood/al Qaeda/ISIS via the Benghazi beachhead and arms supply depot), to the surrender of Europe to Moscow, is all completely, totally, maliciously INTENTIONAL.  If you operate or base an argument from any other premise that this one-and-only TRUE premise, then you are a deluded fool who is wasting everyone’s time with your imbecilic mental masturbation.

Don’t kid yourselves.  The oligarchs are hoping and praying that Ebola breaks out in North America, because crises are the afterburners on their scramjets to hell.

3.  Oh, and don’t mind this.  The Chinese are going to build a canal across Nicaragua that will permit ships up to 400,000 tons displacement.  This will make the Panama Canal (150,000 tons max displacement) into nothing more than a theme park ride.  And the Chinese will then own Central and South America, lock, stock and barrel.  No, really.  Everything’s cool.

4.  The more I read, the more I realize what a truly malignant and evil tyrant Woodrow Wilson was.  He needs to be in the same class as Lenin, Hitler, Stalin and Mao.  He was that bad, and his actions killed and continue to kill that many people, and the fruits of his diabolical machinations are not only still blossoming and ripening before our very eyes, but exploding into a parabolic crescendo.

5.  Time for bluegrass.  I so wish that I could sing.  It must be such a feeling of relief and catharsis to sing.

O bear my longing heart to Him who bled and died for me
Whose Blood now cleanses from all sin and gives me victory
O come Angel Band, come and around me stand
O bear me away on your snow white wings to my immortal home
O bear me away on your snow white wings to my immortal home.

Notes and Advice on How to Convert

Since everyone’s asking, and because aggressive proselytism is the duty of every Christian as commanded by Our Blessed Lord in absolutely no uncertain terms in the Great Commission, and because time’s a wastin’, here is my advice on how to go about entering the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.  This advice will be assuming the reader is in North America.

A.) Find a Latin Mass parish that is in full communion with the Holy See.  There are two main fraternaties right now, the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter and the Institute of Christ the King.  Here are their respective websites.  Cruise over and see if either of these societies has a parish within any sort of driving distance to you.

The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter       www.FSSP.com
(Click on “FSSP Apostolates and Locations” at the top of the page)

The Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest       www.institute-christ-king.org
(list of parishes on the right side of the page)

If you strike out there, take a look at the list below, assembled by the Ecclesia Dei commission.

Ecclesia Dei Traditional Mass Directory

There are more and more Traditional Masses being offered by diocesan priests and others all the time.  The blunt truth is simply this: with the Traditional Mass you stand much, much, much better odds of finding a priest who actually believes in Our Lord, in His Holy Church, what the Church teaches, and is neither a Marxist nor a sodomite, and will thus be overjoyed at the prospect of another soul entering the Church, because the Traditional Mass, saturated with orthodoxy and glorious masculine beauty as it is, is abhorrent and repellant to Marxists, sodomites and heretics.  I’m not going to promise you 100% odds, but they will be much, much better than just stumbling into your closest Novus Ordo parish.

B.)  When asked why you want to convert, begin and end whatever you say with the Eucharist and the Mass.  I want to enter the Church because I am given to understand that the Eucharist is the physical substance of God and the Mass is the once-and-for-all sacrifice of Calvary made present in time.  Then fill in whatever details you would like.  Some, but certainly not all, traditional priests in the U.S. know my name and roughly what is discussed around here.  If you want to drop my name I would be most humbled, and if the priest knows of this website, it will give him a good idea of where you are coming from and possibly save some time.  Or not.

C.) Entering the Church is a big, big deal with massive corollary responsibilities and consequences.  You don’t get married on the first date, and you don’t enter the Church the Sunday after you present yourself to a priest.  You have to receive instruction.  This will go on for as long as the priest deems it necessary, because he is the shepherd and you, little lamb, are his responsibility.  This time should be measured in MONTHS, not weeks.  You will be expected to start attending Mass every Sunday – and why wouldn’t you, right?

D.) Be certain to ask for instruction in the rubrics of the Mass itself, and how to use a hand missal.  It only takes three or four Masses tops to get comfortable with what is going on.  Be curious. Ask questions (in the appropriate time and place). The Church and the Mass exist FOR YOUR BENEFIT.  They are your inheritance.  Claim it.

E.)  Womenfolk:  Gitcha a real purty veil.  I strongly recommend Veils By Lily.  I also strongly recommend having Lily sew one of her handy dandy combs into your veil(s) so you can wear it swept-back Grace Kelly style, and so it stays in place and you don’t have to keep messing with it.  Trust me, ladies.  Go with the comb.

F.) Ask the priest to introduce you to people in the parish.  One of the pleasant things (to me) about going to a Traditional Mass is that you probably aren’t going to be swarmed and interrogated by a welcome wagon.  People leave you alone.  This is often mistaken, especially by people coming out of the Protestant milieu, as aloofness or snobbery.  No.  It is merely the fact that the reason people go to Mass is to… WORSHIP GOD, not to socialize.  Protestant gatherings are mere social experiences, as there is no real worship going on, because remember, worship involves the offering of a sacrifice, and Protestantism BY DEFINITION denies the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.  So all that is left is socializing and entertainment, punctuated by some mindless improvised prayer.  “Lord, we just… we just want to thank You for this day and for this fellowship, and we just… just…”  Anyway, simply ask the priest if he would mind introducing you around at the coffee and doughnuts time after Mass if they have such a thing, or just to some other families privately.  Once you’re introduced, you’ll have a whole church full of new friends and acquaintances.

G.)  Like every other group of human beings in the world ever, there are some crazy cuckoopants people in Traddyland.  I mean some real nutters.  You know, like, er… ME!  Just brace for this now.

Traditional Catholic and  portrait of normalcy.

Traditional Catholic and portrait of normalcy.

H.)  If you are on the pill or otherwise contracepting, either chemically, surgically or mechanically, understand right now that that is going to have to stop.  If you are shacking up, that is going to have to end.  If you are divorced and remarried, that is going to have to be addressed, and I can’t promise you that there is an easy-peasy “happy” ending there.  Harsh but true.  But remember, ANYONE can go to Mass.  ANYONE can kneel and pray before Our Lord in the Tabernacle or exposed in a monstrance.  ANYONE can make a SPIRITUAL COMMUNION with Our Lord.  In fact, you should start making spiritual communions NOW.  Right now.  Right this second, and whenever you want for the rest of your life, including and most especially at Mass.

I.)  If there simply is no way to get to a Traditional Mass parish or a priest who offers the Traditional Mass, find the best Novus Ordo parish you can.  I came into the Church through a Novus Ordo parish, if that is any edification to you.  But understand that even the best Novus Ordo parish may be … lacking.  I’ll conclude with an anecdote.  I came into the Church through a big, new, successful parish in Denver.  It was and is widely regarded as one of the most conservative and exemplary parishes in the archdiocese of Denver, and the pastor is very popular among the laity.  At the Easter Vigil Mass the year AFTER I entered the Church (so, ARSH 2008), after that year’s group of catechumens and candidates had been happily received and baptized and confirmed, the priest began his homily with the following joke:

“I want to offer a special greeting to our catechumens and candidates, now full members of the Body of Christ, soon to receive their first Holy Communions, because I know that we will probably never see most of you at Mass ever again.”

The nave, full to the rafters, erupted into uproarious laughter.  I sat there with my mouth hanging open.  I found a Traditional Mass a few weeks later and never, ever looked back.

J.) Once He has you, He will put you through the sweet, sweet meat grinder of love.  Don’t think that entering the Church is going to make you rich or perpetually deliriously happy or anything like that.  If what you need to get to heaven is suffering, then that is what is going to happen.  Believe me.  But understand that His yoke is indeed light and sweet IF and ONLY IF you surrender to it and trust Him.  He will not give you more than you can carry.  And remember, He suffered in every way that a human being can suffer, so no matter what happens to you, if you pray and meditate on His Passion, you will find your own sufferings right there with Him, and then you will realize that you are not alone because He is right there with you, and that your sufferings are how He is drawing you closer to Him, because He really, really loves you.  And that certainly takes the edge off, to put it mildly.

The Transfiguration, Fra Angelico, ARSH 1442, Convent of San Marco Cell 6, Florence

From Dom Gueranger:

“The King of Jews and Gentiles revealed Himself upon the mountain, where His calm splendour eclipsed for evermore the lightnings of Sinai; the covenant of the eternal alliance was declared, not by the promulgation of a law of servitude engraven upon stone, but by the manifestation of the Lawgiver Himself, coming as Bridegroom to reign in grace and beauty over hearts.”

Beanie-Weenie and Keystone Light

1.  Someone suggested that I make an “Ann’s Recipe Box” page.  I agree.  I will put this on my to-do list.  But the thickest chapter will probably be the mixed drinks chapter.  Ah well.  All the cool kids drink in moderation, and like good food.  Including Our Blessed Lord and Savior.  Wedding at Cana (Whoa!  Y’all were totally sandbagging on the good stuff!  Right ON!), and of course, the post-resurrection breakfast fry-up (Jesus saith to them: Come, and dine. John 21:12)  Always keep some good wine around, and also something to eat.  If Our Lord returns in glory any time soon, after all of the smiting He is going to have to do, I dare say He is going to be hungry, if scriptural precedent is any indicator.  Assuming that we ourselves are not in the smite-age, we don’t want to be serving Him Beanie-Weenie and Keystone Light.

2.  There is a movie out now, another installment in the Planet of the Apes chain, “Dances With Monkeys”, in which the computer animation of the apes is simply stunning.  It occurred to me that very shortly, human actors will no longer be needed – maybe just a handful of people who provide templates for close-up, highly emotional facial expressions.  But be warned.  Where this will lead is to the production of extremely horrific images and scenes – rapes, murders, etc., which will all be branded as “okay since no actual people were involved”.  This is already happening with video games.  It will move into cinema and TV next.  In a culture that already denies objective reality, this tool will utterly deaden people’s consciences.  Be forewarned.  Stay in the real world.  And do everything you can to keep your children and grandchildren in the real world.

3.   Many thanks for all of the feedback on the repost of the Bernardin-Alinsky-Obama Nexus piece, including from Miss Judi McLeod herself.  Also, I received a lovely email from a very important lady.  If you read up on Bernardin and his history, you will read about the eleven year old girl that he raped (with Bishop John J. Russell as the “main celebrant”) at the satanic “black mass” back in ARSH 1957.  That little girl is referred to as “Agnes”.  Well, “Agnes” emailed me and corrected me on a mis-statement that I made.  Bishop John J. Russell agreed on his deathbed to testify in Agnes’ suit against Bernardin, which never came to fruition due to Russell’s death.  I had confused Agnes’ case with the case of the male seminarian that Bernardin raped, Steven Cook.  Cook simply dropped his case without recanting or denying the original charges he had made against Bernardin.  You do the math on that one.  It probably involves six if not seven figures.  “Agnes” never left the Church.  She never confused Our Blessed Lord with the Judases and demons.  I would strongly urge one and all to think long and hard on this, because conflating Our Lord with the cancer that is ravaging His Bride is a very common problem today.  If “Agnes”, after being raped by her bishop and her priest in a satanic ceremony, and then forced to consume a nauseatingly defiled Host immediately after, can make this distinction, then none of us have any excuse.

4.  This was the follow-up to the original posting of the Bernardin piece back in July of ARSH 2012:

“Well, this pretty much sums it up.”

Argue with this all you Catholic clergy and laity who question my methods:

Ann,
I have been tearing myself up about converting to the Catholic faith out of a shallow and worldly evangelicalism. After reading your essays on Bernardin and Alinsky, I am convinced that God is calling His people to renewal and repentance. I can’t see any other reason to convert. If you would have asked me a few years ago, I would have laughed at the very notion, but I believe we must cry out as one body for the Holy Spirit to renew us, to cause us to repent and to stand against Satan.

Much love to you,
J

Isn’t that interesting. This person is called to conversion because she was told the ugly truth about the situation in the Church. The Truth, no matter how unpleasant, is still the Truth, which is Jesus Christ, who is in Himself Objective Beauty. So, the reality of a Church infested with Marxist-homosexualists, by the grace of God, can actually be a means of saving souls.

It’s a paradox, gentlemen. Like Christ Crucified, the most horrible thing to ever, ever happen was made by God into the ultimate triumph. The Church today is the image of Christ Crucified. Proclaim His death, and share in His resurrection. Tell the world exactly what has happened over the last 50 years – forthrightly and holding nothing back, and then you just watch what happens.

5.  As the Francis pontificate grinds on, with seemingly each day bringing some double-face palm horror, it seems to me that Our Lord is using this as perhaps one last big sifting, or sorting, to see who REALLY gets it, who really loves Him personally and not as a mere philosophy or legal system, and is going to stick with Him.  Again, I think the cancer analogy is very helpful here.  If your wife was diagnosed with cancer, would you immediately move out?  File for divorce?  Because, hey, I didn’t marry someone with cancer, and therefore you are no longer the person I married, right?  Nope.  Stay in the boat.  Because schism only breeds more schism. And besides, that’s exactly what they want you to do.  They want you out, because if you’re out, well, for lack of a better phrase… YOU’RE OUT.   It is going to be an absolute mess, and Our Lord says this repeatedly in scripture (sorting of sheep from goats, the sorting of the catch in the nets, the weeds growing among the crop, people crying out, “Lord, Lord” and being escorted to hell because “I never knew you”.)  Also, we have Our Lady warning us of all of this repeatedly, Fatima and Quito being the two most prominent instances.  Bottom line, none of this should be a surprise, and thus we should all be confirmed and “dug in”, with the thought of abandoning Our Lord, or really withdrawing from Him and His Church in any way, to be not just unthinkable, but in diametric opposition to the very circumstances and responses we have been anticipating and preparing ourselves for.

6.  And yes, the “I never knew you” line is totally a reference to the Eucharist and its nuptial quality.  Of course it is.

7.  Hey you want to purge the Church of nearly all Marxist-sodomite priests and bishops in one easy step?  Make them turn around and celebrate the Mass facing God, not facing the “audience”.  I’m telling you, the Marxists and pervs would schism and abandon the Church so fast your heads would spin.  Now, this isn’t going to happen, BUT If you’re looking for a way to size up a priest or bishop quickly, simply ask him if he would say the Mass facing Our Lord in the Tabernacle.  The vast, vast majority would flatly refuse to do it.  Because for them, it is all about ME ME ME.

8.  I also received an email from a guy who was confirmed by Bernardin back in the day.  He said the only thing any of them remembered about the Mass was how super-creepy Bernardin was.  Of course, “super-creepy” is how children process and describe sodomites, both male and female.  But this brings up a point about the heresy of Donatism, which is alive and well today.  Donatism basically says that the state of the soul of the priest affects the validity of the sacraments he performs.  WRONG.  100% wrong.  First, we’re ALL sinners, so if the validity of a sacrament was tied to the soul of the priest, there would be no valid sacraments performed ever, anywhere.  If you want to talk about God’s infinite mercy, here it is.  Bernardin’s Masses, so long as they were said properly, were valid.  As was the confirmation of the fellow who emailed me.  There are people who were married by sodomite priests who raped teenaged boys, and these couples, when they found out about the priests, doubted that their marriages were valid.  YES, those marriages are absolutely valid.  How in the world would it make sense for Our Lord to hold lay people responsible so as to WITHDRAW HIMSELF from those truly seeking Him because of the sins of the priest, which were unknowable at the time to the people?  What about priests who keep concubines?  Those priests are in mortal sin more often than not, while saying Mass.  The effects on the souls of the priests offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass while in mortal sin are horrific and real – as they are for ANYONE who receives the Eucharist whilst in mortal sin.  This is why St. Paul warns so strongly against receiving the Eucharist unworthily in 1 Corinthians 11 – because as Voltaire told his student, the quickest way to extinguish faith and deaden the conscience is to receive Our Lord in mortal sin.  But no matter how unworthy the priest may be, those consequences are justly limited to him, NOT unjustly applied to the recipients of the sacraments he confects.  God is not an irrational, arbitrary tyrant.  He is perfectly just, and perfectly rational, and He loves us and will allow a satan-worshiping sodomite like Bernardin to call Him down onto the altar in his hands – so He can be with us.  Get your mind around that and you have officially pondered the first drop in the ocean of His Mercy and Love for us.

9.  This paraphrased from a clever reader:

In Roman times, the Christian martyrs were resisting the State and saying, “I don’t care what happens to me.”

The modern “Christian” acquiesces to the State and says, “I don’t care what happens to me.”

INDEED. 

Starting Thursday Off Right – St. Ignatius of Loyola (founder of an order that no longer exists) 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.

St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of an order referred to as the "Jesuits", not to be confused with the horrific, horrific monstrosity infecting the Church and the world today, which cunningly goes by the same name.

St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of an order referred to as the “Jesuits”, not to be confused with the horrific, horrific cancer infecting the Church and the world today, which cunningly goes by the same name.

Poor, poor St. Ignatius of Loyola.  Read this simple bio and then tell me that the so-called Jesuit order of today, a wretched hive of heretics, Marxists and sodomites, is the same thing that this saint founded:

Ignatius, courtier and knight, was wounded at the siege of Pamplona.  During his long convalescence the reading of the lives of the saints revealed to him that the Church Militant needed an army of glorious soldiers to fight the forces combined against it: pagans, mohammedans, protestants, etc.  He founded the Society of Jesus and as first General of this new spiritual chivalry he moved to the attack under the motto: “Ad majorem Dei gloriam – To the greater glory of God!”  He died with the Holy Name of Jesus on his lips ARSH 1556.

St. Ignatius of Loyola, pray for us that we may be defended against the wickedness and snares of the thoroughly infested “jesuit order” of today, which we know has nothing to do with you.

The one about… THE BERNARDIN-ALINSKY-OBAMA NEXUS

As an opening to this repost, I have to link to Judi McLeod’s piece from today “The Road to Hell Obama is taking the world down created by U.S. Catholic Bishops”.  In it she restates the myriad connections between the infiltrator Communist-sodomite bishops and priests in the Catholic Church, Saul Alinsky and the Chicago Communist Machine that spawned Obama.  I stand foursquare behind Judi’s piece, because it is true.  It does not contain one shred of anti-Catholicism any more than a stage-4 cancer diagnosis contains racism.

When I have screeched, caterwauled and POUNDED for the last however many years that the Catholic Church has been massively infiltrated by Communists over the last century, who then actively recruited homosexuals, I haven’t been merely throwing around mindless pejoratives.  When I make posts about the Eucharist and the catastrophic changes made to the Mass in the 1960s, I hope that some of you out there have the light bulb go on over your head and realize that IT’S ALL CONNECTED.  If you want a conspiracy theory that is ACTUALLY TRUE, and has more meat on it than you could possibly imagine, this is it.  

Everything we are seeing happening right now in real time before our very eyes: Obama, the overthrow of the US and the attendant run-up to World War 3, the reformation of the islamic Caliphate, the economic crimes and creation of catastrophic debt loads, the destruction of the healthcare delivery matrix, the transformation of education into contra-education, the destruction of and hatred of beauty and the elevation and worship of ugliness, and the ascendancy of the satanic sodomite anti-culture, all of this – all of it, can be traced back without too many degrees of separation to these Communist-sodomite infiltrators of the Church and the attempted destruction of the Church, with the primary and “keystone” target being the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.  The reason why Western Civilization has capitulated to this attack with near-zero resistance is because of the mass-apostasy caused directly and as-intended by the “reforms” subsequent to the Second Vatican Council.    

And just to reiterate, I will never, ever, ever leave the Church, because I do not worship men, I worship God, and God physically subsists nowhere else, and salvation is possible through no other means than the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.  Extra Ecclesiam nulla salus.  No matter how complete the infiltration is, no matter how utterly, utterly horrific the pope may be, I will never, ever, abandon Our Lord or the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.  The Church is never more like Christ, and never closer to Him in this Vale of Tears, than when she is scourged and crucified by her own, just as her Divine Spouse was.

The following was originally penned and posted on July 23, ARSH 2012.

Over at the Blaze, they’re running a headline piece on Phyllis Schlafly’s new book, “No Higher Power”.

Schlafly has the entire paper trail showing the Archdiocese of Chicago paying for Obama to attend a seminar in California on Alinsky tactics and theory. Praise God, she even has the check stub with “THE CATHOLIC BISHOP OF CHICAGO” emblazoned across the top of the check. The images of that are at the link above.

If you haven’t watched my video series on the Vendee Genocide, please do. For those of you who have, you will remember that I specifically called out the dead former Cardinal Archbishop of Chicago, Joseph Bernardin, and stated that he was not only a Marxist plant and raging sodomite, but also an actual, real-life Satanist, who participated in satanic rituals, “black masses”, orgies and child rape.

Guess who the Cardinal Archbishop of Chicago was in ARSH 1986 who sent and paid for Obama to attend the conference on Alinsky tactics and theory – the same Alinsky who proudly dedicated his seminal manifesto, “Rules For Radicals” to Lucifer himself?

Joseph Bernardin. Joseph Bernardin, the Marxist plant and satanist, sent Obama to Alinksy training in ARSH 1986.

Here is the very short story on what likely happened with Bernardin. Bernardin was born Catholic in South Carolina in ARSH 1928. He had no remarkable zeal for the faith as a youngster, according to his own immediate family. Right after WWII, when the Communists really began their infiltration strategy of both the U.S. government, entertainment industry and education complex, and also the Catholic Church, Bernardin enrolled in the University of South Carolina pre-med program. All he had ever talked about as a kid was being a doctor.

Bernardin was homosexual, and likely entered into the gay underground scene in Columbia. There he was recruited by satanists. Remember, this is ARSH 1948. Satanists and Communists, who many times were BOTH, cultivated and trolled gay bars and the gay underground for recruits. Bernardin was promised power and as much deviant sex as he could ever want if he would enter seminary and be ordained a Catholic priest.

After his first year at USC, Bernardin went home and announced to his SHOCKED family that he was entering seminary. He was ordained in ARSH 1952 by Bishop John J. Russell, who was also fingered in depositions as the “celebrant” of satanic rituals. Russell may have repented, as he offered to testify against Bernardin in a lawsuit brought by one of Bernardin’s male seminarian rape victims, but conveniently died before he could testify in the early 1980s.

Bernardin was then speedily elevated up the ranks, being installed a bishop at the remarkably young age of 37. Shockingly, he was made the General Secretary of the Conference of Catholic Bishops (U.S.) in ARSH 1968 after being a bishop for only two years, and being only 40 years old. Guess what his job was? Implementing the Novus Ordo Mass, and we can now say with certainty, destroying the Tridentine Mass, and with it the Church itself.

Again, only a few years later in ARSH 1974, at the age of 46, Bernardin was elected the President of the Conference of Catholic Bishops (U.S., which is now called the USCCB). He held that post, either himself or through his hand-picked proxies, and pretty much controlled what went on in the U.S., most especially who was elevated to the office of bishop in the U.S. and who ran seminaries, until he died in ARSH 1996.

Bernardin, in addition to doing everything possible in an attempt to destroy the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, railed against Pope Paul VI’s encyclical Humanae Vitae, which explicitly and prophetically condemned all birth control and abortion as objective evil, and laid out the consequences of a contraceptive, abortive culture: skyrocketing adultery, skyrocketing divorce, skyrocketing objectification of women, skyrocketing sodomite perversions, the destruction of the institution of marriage, the destruction of the family as the center of society, economic collapse, and finally total civilizational collapse. Sound familiar???

Bernardin’s satanic means of coercing Catholics to vote for his Marxist-Communist masters and allies was called the “Seamless Garment” argument. He told people that it was their duty to vote for pro-abort politicians (read Democrats) because the fact that they wanted to give free shit to people canceled out the fact that they also wanted to kill babies. Because, you know, we have to view life as one big seamless garment, and take the good with the bad, or something. If the image of the serpent beguiling Eve in the Garden hasn’t popped into your mind yet, now it has.

Since Bernardin was in charge of who got elevated and thus had control over the seminaries, orthodox, heterosexual Catholic men were either rejected or harassed/threatened into leaving. Bernardin would frequently make “visits” to seminaries all over the U.S. Whenever he would appear, he would ALWAYS have a young male with him, whom everyone knew was his concubine. Bernardin would then cruise the seminarians for sex, and got quite a bit, since the majority of seminarians were homosexual per his policy.

Bernardin was made the Archbishop of Chicago in ARSH 1982. In ARSH 1986, Bernardin sent Barack Obama to California to attend a training seminar on Alinsky theory, tactics, and “community organizing”, which we all know now is Marxist infiltration and agitation of the proletariat with the objective of crushing the middle class, collapsing the economy and government, and thus enabling a Marxist-Communist-Fascist hybrid revolution, the goal of which is the total destruction of the Church and global totalitarian tyrannical oligarchy.

As a Catholic, I am ELATED that this information about the Marxist-homosexualist infiltration of the Church is finally coming out. The pathetic strategy of ignoring the truth of the situation, pretending that nothing is wrong, and not saying anything unflattering about the bishops and clergy has not only not helped, it has made things monumentally worse, and has directly kept people out of the Church who otherwise would have found their way across the Tiber. Not to toot my own horn, but I was obviously given the grace to discern the difference between the PEOPLE inside the Church, and the Church itself, the Body and Bride of Christ. Most people look at the Church today and see either Marxist-homosexualists or COWARDS who refuse to acknowledge what has happened or take any proactive steps to fight the evil inside the Church.

A seminal moment for me personally happened in ARSH 2009. I was visiting with an orthodox priest about the Marxism in the Church, specifically amongst the bishops, and his response was, “We just have to wait for them to die. The attrition of time is all we can hope for.”

Um, no.  Incorrect, Father.

At that moment, I knew that given my personal situation and minor bully pulpit, it would probably fall to me, and a few other lay people, to do this. I’ll admit the thought was conceited on my part as I had literally only been in the Church for a little over two years at that point, BUT the fact that I have gone viral no less than THREE TIMES since that conversation I find … interesting.

This website, despite its many flaws, not the least of which is my use of foul language, is a vector by which the Holy Ghost is converting and reverting people to the Church. Why? Because when people have the truth of the situation explained to them, even though it is horrible, the TRUTH, which is Jesus Christ, is always, always attractive. Be honest and upfront with people and not only will they not hate you, they’ll join your army and will march into battle with you.

Lie, deny, prevaricate and cower and you will do nothing but REPEL people. Welcome to the New Evangelization.

 

The one about… RENDERING UNTO CAESAR

This was originally penned and posted on November 6, AD 2011. This is interesting because this was the Sunday after MF Global happened. It was still thought at this time that Corzine had stolen *only* a few hundred million dollars – not $1.6 billion, nor had it yet occurred to anyone that NO ONE would be held accountable for any of this. PFG Best hadn’t yet happened. The Sentinel Ruling hadn’t happened. The ObamaCare abortion and contraception mandates had not yet happened. Benghazi hadn’t happened.  The IRS scandal hadn’t happened.  And this was 10 days before I shut down Barnhardt Capital Management.

My decision has been confirmed as correct so many times over that there is no longer any question associated with it.
And now, ladies and gentlemen, is the hour in which the full and hideous scope of the horror that dares call itself “modern, Western Christianity” is revealed. After announcing my Federal tax strike, I have been overrun with sickening, nauseating email after email telling me that for me to enjoin a tax strike is “immoral”, “unchristian”, “contrary to scripture”, “pointless”, “a waste” and all the rest. To everyone who has sent such an email, and you know who you are, there are not words to express the depth of my disgust. I am ashamed – yes ASHAMED – of every single one of you. Your cowardice, your failure to grasp even the most rudimentary concepts of Christianity, starting first and foremost with the First Commandment, but most especially the shallowness of your discernment, is repellant to behold. Super-fun Rockband church and Pastor Jason, and the Marxist-homosexualist infiltrated Novus Ordo Catholic parishes with Father Liza-Judy and their bee-ess six-minute sermons about ABSOLUTELY NOTHING have cleared the battlefield for satan in a war of attrition that would make William Tecumseh Sherman blush with shame.

And let’s not forget that other tool of satan which has sent every other clergyman pecker-down in the dirt to lick the hooves of the federal government, wet with the liquid manure of political correctness and the running blood of the unborn, in utter submission: the 501(c) exemption.

Here’s your catechetics and civics lesson for the week.

“Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s” is NOT a release from the First Commandment.

I had one guy email me and tell me that Jesus will not hold any of us responsible for any of the abortions in this country because we JUST HAVE to pay taxes and we have absolutely no choice in the matter. Bullshit. First, what the hell do you think is happening right now? Boys and girls, you are going to be held to account for sitting by and subsidizing the holocaust of the preborn. This country is being brought down as punishment for the genocide that every one of us is partially responsible for.

Secondly, apparently you all have been brainwashed into believing that the I.R. fricking-S is the most powerful entity in the universe, and that being condemned by the IRS is the worst and most permanent fate in the universe and in the realm of humanity. In other words, YOU IDIOTS WORSHIP THE I.R.S. ABOVE GOD. YOU FEAR THE I.R.S., BUT DO NOT FEAR GOD, HIS JUDGEMENT OR HIS WRATH IN THE SLIGHTEST. And you call yourselves Christian? Really?

Now let’s think logically. The words, “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s; and render unto the Lord that which is the Lord’s” have as a direct corollary the asking of a question. What is that question? Come on. Think. You can do this.

The question is, what rightfully belongs to Caesar and what rightfully belongs to God? The God part is easy. EVERYTHING belongs to God. Uh-oh. Now we have a mathematical conundrum, don’t we? If we believe in God, and we believe in the First Commandment, then “Caesar” is truly OWED nothing. We can CONSENT to pay taxes in a spirit of truth, justice, solidarity and freedom, but only if those four specific ends are served by our taxes.

Let’s go through each of the four:

TRUTH:

Barack Obama is a usurper. He is constitutionally ineligible to hold the office of the presidency, and he knows this, the entire Congress knows this, the entire upper-echelon of the military knows this, the entire intelligence community knows this, and the SCOTUS knows this. Barack Obama is an enemy of the United States, who is in a state of open, declared war upon it, its constitution and its people. This is the absence of truth. We are being “led” by a human lie, backed by an entire government of oath-breaking liars. Therefore, the government is illegitimate and has forfeited its licitness.

JUSTICE:

The Rule of Law is effectively dead. From the presence of Obama himself in the White House, to the lawless Department of Justice, to Fast & Furious, to Solyndra, to the unconstitutional “czars” and “executive orders”, to the Federal Reserve, this is a society ruled by a government of men, not laws. When government is ruled by men and not laws, the determining criterion of how government relates to people becomes brute force of arms and violent coercion, and not transcendent truth. We are utterly deprived of justice by the government itself, and thus the federal government has forfeited its legitimacy. (Note: Remember that when this was originally written, the full knowledge and scope of the financial market lawlessness was not yet known, much less any of the crimes that have occurred or been exposed since November of ARSH 2011. MF Global had happened only six days earlier.)

SOLIDARITY:

The government is inciting both race-centered, age-centered and class-based antagonism and violence. In declaring pre-born children non-human, a genocide has been legally sanctioned that has cost 50 million lives AND COUNTING. ObamaCare is poised to exterminate the elderly by determining that their lives are not worth living. The government is consciously and expressly trying to break down solidarity amongst citizens along race and class lines, including the literal dissolving of the territorial borders of the nation, and in that action it forfeits its legitimacy.

FREEDOM:

From ObamaCare, to the TSA, to the forced acceptance of sexual perversions, to forced “political correctness”, to the overt support of Sharia law and muslim sedition, to the destruction of the Free Exercise and Equal Protection clauses, this government is working consciously and overtly against fundamental human freedom, and has thus forfeited its legitimacy.

1-2-3-4. I don’t owe Caesar a damn thing, and it is now to the point where the continued subsidizing of this utterly lawless and illegitimate government puts me in violaton of the

First Commandment (I AM the LORD thy God; thou shalt not have strange gods before me.)
by forcing me to break God’s Law – the Natural Law – in order to follow the laws of the state; the

Second Commandment (Thou shalt not take the Name of the LORD thy God in vain.)
by punishing and imprisoning my fellow citizens (See Lakin, LTC Terry) who attempt to uphold their sworn oaths, and by forcing me to subsidize a government that is, to the man, populated by oathbreakers; the

Fourth Commandment (Honor thy father and thy mother.)
by actively and consciously destroying the family, discouraging right-ordered marriage through the welfare state, legislating perverted “false marriage” paradigms, facilitating the murder of children by their parents, and pitting society against their parents by encouraging or even mandating euthanasia via ObamaCare; the

Fifth Commandment (Thou shalt not murder.)
through the “legally sanctioned” and now MANDATED taxpayer subsidizing of the holocaust of preborn children via abortion as well as the premeditated murder of thousands of Mexican civilians via Operation Fast & Furious; the

Sixth Commandment (Thou shalt not commit adultery.)
through the forced “legalization” of sodomite faux-marriage and the discouragement of chastity and marriage itself via the HHS contraceptive and sterilization mandate as well as welfare state; the

Seventh Commandment (Thou shalt not steal.)
via the government sanctioned, legalized and protected confiscation of private property, the illegal nullification of contracts by the federal government, and the stirring-up by the government of envy and the sense of entitlement to the property of others; the

Eighth Commandment (Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.)
by forcing me to subsidize and give my tacit approval to the lie of Barack Obama’s presidency and the fundamental dishonesty of the Eric Holder Department of Justice, in addition to the mathematical lies regarding the state of the banking sectors and the mathematical impossibilities of the government run entitlement ponzi schemes; and the

Tenth Commandment (Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s goods.)
by forcing me to subsidize a government that is built on a premise of and is attempting to fully convert to a system based wholly upon coveting the property of one’s neighbor and the forced redistribution of private property.

We’re batting .800. Enough is enough. You CANNOT subsidize this government and still claim that God is “first” in your life. It is mathematically, metaphysically and morally impossible. You must choose your allegiances NOW. You must NOW choose who or what it is that you truly worship. Do you worship God or do you worship your wealth? Here’s a simple litmus test for you: are you or are you not willing to give up all of your wealth in bearing witness to God in His Truth? If the answer is no, then stop calling yourself a Christian, because you very simply are not.

If you don’t like people speaking the truth to you like this, I’m sure Pastor Jason or Father Liza-Judy will be very happy to lie to you and dry your tears with the rockband playing proudly behind.

If you don’t want to take my word for it, that is fine. Here is paragraph 2242 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which specifically cites the Tribute episode as the ratification of civil disobedience:

The citizen is obliged in conscience not to follow the directives of civil authorities when they are contrary to the demands of the moral order, to the fundamental rights of persons or the teachings of the Gospel. Refusing obedience to civil authorities, when their demands are contrary to those of an upright conscience, finds its justification in the distinction between serving God and serving the political community.
“Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”

“We must obey God rather than men.” -CCC 2242

Now to the question of imprisonment and even execution. Again, I can not understand how Christendom has become so monstrously illiterate. “Oh Ann, you can’t do any good in prison, and leave the pointless martyrdom to the muslims.”

HOW. DARE. YOU. How DARE you piss all over the true Christian Martyrs. How DARE you call their deaths “pointless” and how DARE you equivocate the deaths of these saints to the murderous suicides of pagan musloids. Why don’t you turn off your precious TV for a few minutes and actually READ something? Like the biographies of the saints, for example? Or even just the Bible. Do you not realize that St. Paul wrote a goodly portion of the Epistles from prison? Do you not realize that St. John the Beloved spent most of his life either in prison or in remote exile? Do you not realize that eleven of the twelve original apostles were EXECUTED along with St. Paul? Only John died naturally in old age. Why don’t you tell me about the massive wastes their lives were. If they had only lain low and watered down the Gospel, they could have lived long lives and accomplished so much more. Is that right? Isn’t that your argument? Well, why don’t you just make that argument for Our Lord while you’re at it? There are plenty of leftist pseudo-theologians running around saying exactly that. Jesus was a fool to have only led a three year ministry. If He had just been more politically savvy, He could have lived for decades – and then think how much He could have taught the world! The Incarnation really was a waste in terms of earthly accomplishment. Right? RIGHT?

St. John the Baptist: Beheaded

St. Stephen: Stoned

St. James the Great: Beheaded

St. Philip: Crucified

St. Matthew: Impaled on a halberd

St. James the Less: Clubbed to death after crucifixion and stoning

St. Matthias: Beheaded after stoning

St. Andrew: Crucified

St. Mark: Beheaded after being dragged

St. Peter: Crucified upside down

St. Paul: Beheaded

St. Jude: Crucified

St. Bartholomew: Flayed alive and then crucified

St. Thomas: Impaled with a spear

St. Luke: Hanged

St. Simon: Crucified

St. Antipas: Roasted alive

And that is just a few of the more “famous” Christians of the first century, whose deaths history recorded. Please understand that being a Christian carried a non-trivial risk of death for the first several centuries. Thank God that those men and women weren’t the milquetoast, fair-weather, pants-pissing cowards that so many of you are today. Thank God that they had real courage and real fortitude and didn’t immediately water-down the Gospel into some filthy, narcissistic heresy just so they could stay in the good graces of the governments. Thank God that they actually understood their faith, and didn’t regard Jesus as a mere “philosophical construct” or “imaginary friend” and actually acknowledged that He is True God and True Man.

Whether you care to admit this or not, people are responsible for their government. And We The People of the United States of America have perhaps the most personal responsibility for our government than any other nation in history. Why? First, because were are a representative republic founded upon a foundation of Christian law and philosophy. This was one of better set-ups in all of human history, and it also therefore bestowed the most responsibility upon its people for the government itself, up to the very top.  When your constitution literally opens with the words, “WE THE PEOPLE”, it is simply beyond the pale to try to argue that “the people” bear no responsibility for the government.

The other reason we are the most culpable nation in history for our government is because we are an armed nation. The people of North Korea, because they were disarmed decades ago, bear less responsibility for their government than we do – but they are still responsible. If the people of North Korea, disarmed and half starved to death, are responsible for their government, how much more are We The People, armed and fed, responsible for the absolute abomination that is our Federal government? This concept of citizen culpability for governance is why it was morally licit to firebomb Dresden, Tokyo and finally drop atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The civilians of Japan permitted, allowed and cooperated with their government in its wars of aggression during WWII. The same goes for the German people. They could have and should have put down their respective governments – but they didn’t and so they paid for it.

The exact same dynamic applies to us. We have let this happen. We have sat by, complacent, impotent and self-absorbed, coveting our personal wealth and possessions above EVERYTHING. And now that there is no denying or escaping what our duty is to God and neighbor, we can only concoct fictions about the eternal omnipotence of the Internal Revenue Service in order to convince ourselves that we aren’t to blame, and that we have no duty except to ourselves. Because you fools refuse to act to correct your lawless government via the most effective, simple and utterly non-violent method, namely a tax strike, you are guaranteeing hot war, bloodshed and catastrophic suffering.

The fact is that every single Christian clergyman should have called for a national tax strike on Sunday, January 28, ARSH 1973. Why? Because that was the Sunday after SCOTUS legalized the murder of preborn children. Because of that first moral failure, here we now sit, and it is no one’s fault but our own.

Most of you out there apparently have the capacity for delusion that allows you to convince yourself that you will not be made to answer for any of this, but I do not, and for that I can only say, Thanks be to God.

I fear God, and God alone, and thus I will render unto Him EVERYTHING, up to and including my wealth, assets, freedom and life, if that is what is required to remain in compliance with His commandments. The early Christians went to their deaths rather than offer a pinch of incense on the altar of Caesar. Incense is merely symbolic and burns away. Money subsidizes, finances and enables activities that break God’s law – the Natural Law. Therefore I will not file, and I will not pay income taxes unless and until the Federal Government of the United States is reformed under the Constitution of 1787 as amended, and the Rule of Law is reasserted, necessarily and non-negotiably including the arrest and trial of Barack Obama, and the re-criminalizing of abortion in all cases, or until a new, legitimate government replaces it.

Epilogue:  The American republic is dead and cannot be salvaged, so I look to the formation of a new, licit, Godly state or states that will govern its former territories.  This, however, will only happen after a massive war, which I do not expect to survive.  I still fully expect to be imprisoned and die unnaturally, and likely tortured and raped before my death.  The only change is that I am now in permanent possession of a treasury, contained in the impenetrable fortress of the memory, of consoling experiences and memories which is already far more than sufficient for me, but may yet continue to grow until such time as I am either arrested or killed.  This is a blessing for which my gratitude to God defies quantification. 

Thou hast prepared a table before me against them that afflict me. Thou hast anointed my head with oil; and my chalice which inebriateth me, how goodly is it!
Psalm 22: 5
