I was going to write a big screed…

But then I happened upon this video which was recorded on December 4, ARSH 2012, and this says it all.  It is positively spooky to watch.  Slightly prescient.  And yes, not only am I still prepared to spend the rest of my life in prison or die at the hands of the regime, I’m even more ready and better prepared because I have had over a year of “Van” life and prayer in Riverville, and piles and piles of experiences and happy memories to console me as I either sit in my cell or walk the Green Mile to my place of execution.  I sure wouldn’t mind more, but the timing is all up to God.

Whenever You’re ready, Boss.

Lots of language in this.  Kinda Patton-esque.

Egg Salad

1.  Two hard boiled eggs, diced.  A little mayo.  A little sour cream (if you have it).  Pinch of salt.  Tablespoon of pickle relish.  It’s the simple pleasures in life.

2.  Paraphrasing a quote from Nicholas Cotoner, renowned as the father of the modern study of human anatomy: “It is essential to dissect the dead in order to heal the living.”  Indeed. Pass the chainsaw, and lower your splash shields.

3.  Yeah, it’s happening again.  ZeroHedge has this up today.  And I see that KD has picked it up, too.  CYNK, a social media start-up (whatever that means) with one employee, no website, no revenue, no product, and no assets, is now booking a market cap of nearly FIVE BILLION DOLLARS.  This is going to make the 2000 and 2008 crashes look like your sixth birthday party at McDonald’s.

4.  So, yeah, in the interests of making sure everyone is arguing from TRUE premises and not FALSE premises, the whole Mexican border dissolution thing is 100% intentional and pre-planned.  Saw it coming even before Obama officially usurped and the Republic was overthrown back in ’08.  There are three main objectives achieved by this: 1.) Feed the Cloward-Piven overload and collapse of the FEDGOV by adding millions to the entitlement teat 2.) Expand the proletariat, which will agitate for and deliver more power to the oligarchy in return for empty promises of free shit 3.) Enable unfettered access to former-U.S. territory by musloids, with whom the Obama regime is saturated and explicitly allied with against Western Civilization.  This is all exactly, precisely what they want and so therefore thinking that they are somehow embarrassed, ashamed or have any desire to “correct” or mitigate any of it is either dishonest to a gargantuan degree, or just flat stupid.  You’re sitting around waiting for psychopathic arch-criminals who have taken over the largest economy and military in human history, and who are achieving absolutely every single one of their satanic goals with zero resistance, to slam on the brakes and voluntarily cease and desist because of an appeal to their conscience?  Really?  REALLY?

5.  Yeah, I saw that bonehead Catholics are now working with the FEDGOV to traffic aliens into the country.  Here’s what you have to understand.  Most of the bishops today are stupid.  I’m talking dumber than a bag of hair stupid.  And, not surprisingly given that and given the Communist infiltration of the Church in the 20th century, most of them have Marxist leanings – even the so-called conservatives like Chaput in Philadelphia.  Chaput agitated HARD for ObamaCare, even going so far as to force every parish in Denver to read a letter from him in which he declared healthcare a RIGHT.  Rights come from God.  Physical and service commodities are not rights, unless you subscribe to a materialist, Marxist worldview.  But Ann, but Ann, I read Chaput’s book, “Render Unto Caesar”, and it wasn’t Marxist.  Of course not.  That’s because Chaput’s ghostwriter isn’t Marxist.  She’s a very good Catholic lady, who delivered a fine book indeed to the Archbishop.

6.  Oh, and yes, the “dumb” and “Marxist” labels apply fully to the Bishop of Rome, and Vicar of Christ, too.  Francis is a Peronist-Fascist who is quite a dim bulb who has been built up from nothing by a fawning Marxist media – not at all unlike Obama.  Listening to Progressive-Conservative (ProgCon) Catholics try to explain away the “Communists stole our (Christianity’s) flag” quote from last week is simultaneously amusing and nauseating.  Communism, which reduces human beings to economic object/units, which it then slaughters by the millions, is just Christianity under a different “flag”, huh?  I cannot put into words what an abomination and desecration of the memories of the millions of martyrs to Communism that statement is.  The Communists who tortured Cardinal Mindszenty were not “closet Christians”.  The torturers of the Romanian and Vietnamese Catholics were not “closet Christians”.  Believe me, when I call Pope Francis stupid, it is from the bowels of charity, because the alternative is that he is malevolent, and for full disclosure, I bought an at-the-money call option on “malevolent” within minutes of his election.

7.  Remember, Our Lord is angry with us.  Very, very, very angry.  And so, it is time for this again:

“The most evident mark of God’s anger, and the most terrible castigation He can inflict upon the world, is manifest when He permits His people to fall into the hands of a clergy who are more in name than in deed, priests who practice the cruelty of ravening wolves rather than the charity and affection of devoted shepherds. They abandon the things of God to devote themselves to the things of the world and, in their saintly calling of holiness, they spend their time in profane and worldly pursuits. When God permits such things, it is a very positive proof that He is thoroughly angry with His people and is visiting His most dreadful wrath upon them.”  –St. John Eudes

8.  For your “The New Pentecost (™) : not *quite* as awesome as the first Pentecost…” file, a quote from a Novus Ordo ProgCon (Progressive Conservative) on a thread about me on another blog:

“Do this, in memory of me.” The mass is only a community meal in obedience to this command.

And there it is.  The fruits of St. Second Vatican Council.  Here is a man who considers himself a dyed in the wool Catholic – and a CONSERVATIVE one at that, who, in a public forum, published the words THE MASS IS ONLY A COMMUNITY MEAL.

We have to start arguing from TRUE PREMISES, no matter how painful they may be.  The Novus Ordo Mass was conceived IN MALICE by infiltrators of the Church with the specific objective of destroying the Church from the inside out by doing everything possible to convince the laity that the Mass is… um, how should I phrase this, er… OH!  I know!  …To convince the laity that the Mass IS ONLY A COMMUNITY MEAL.  And you know what?  They were successful.  Catholics today either have no clue that the Holy Sacrifice of the MASS is … THE SACRIFICE OF CALVARY or, like this guy, when presented with the reality of 1930 years of Church history and liturgy prior to the Second Vatican Council, doesn’t believe it and blows it off.  Because, you know, that’s just too awkward and immoderate a position.  Real Presence?  Calvary made present?  That’s crazy talk.  How can we possibly be loved by the world and convince “seekers” to come to “services” if we insist upon pushing these antiquated, and frankly embarrassingly ridiculous “supernatural” (used as a pejorative) memes that nobody, saving a few kooks, actually believes anyway?  No, no.  The Mass is only – ONLY – a community meal.  ONLY.  Without others or anything further; alone; solely; exclusively.  ONLY.

Well, to paraphrase Flannery O’Connor, if it is ONLY a community meal, then to hell with it.  Exactly.  Which is why 90+ percent of ethnic Catholics have apostatized since the introduction of the Novus Ordo Mass in the late 1960s, and why the remaining less-than-ten percent, like this chap, are actually Protestant in their beliefs.  Remember, Protestants are PROTESTING, at the end of the day, the Eucharist and the Holy Sacrifice, qua sacrifice, of the Mass.  It all drills down to that.  And these are exactly, precisely the results that the Novus Ordo was specifically, consciously designed to produce.

So when I say that the Novus Ordo MUST be exterminated before civilization has any hope of genuine recovery, understand that the Novus Ordo has a self-destruct mechanism built into it, just as a cancer will eventually kill the organism within which it resides, thus resulting in the death of the tumor as well.  It will exterminate itself one way or another, because it was designed by the infiltrators, led by Annibale Bugnini, as a vector of destruction.  It was designed to obscure and trivialize both Calvary and the Eucharist, and to replace these things with fully Protestant worship of the “self” and the self’s FEEEEEELINGS, and the “group”.  And because neither the “self” nor the “group” are worthy of worship (understatement of the day), the inevitable conclusion that those trapped in the Novus Ordo come to, sooner or later, is indeed, “to hell with it.”

Zero effort should be put into “fixing” the Novus Ordo, because it cannot be fixed any more than a brain tumor can be transformed into normal brain tissue.  You can’t “fix” a cancer into healthy tissue.  The so-called “Reform of the Reform” is a fool’s errand that only buys the Enemy more time, and thus more souls lost to hell. But obviously, like a cancer patient, shouldn’t we try to cut out, radiate away or chemo away the cancer so that it does as little damage as possible??    If your oncologist told you that his treatment plan, which was guaranteed to be 100% successful, was to let the cancer kill you, and thus kill the cancer, you would punch him in the face.  Just sayin’.

Yeah, to say that the Mass is ONLY a community meal is like saying that Jesus was ONLY a charismatic teacher.  ONLY.  Man, it’s that “only”.  That “only” is a knife to the heart, and says it all.

And, of course, the kicker to all of this is that most Novus Ordo Masses are indeed valid.  That’s why it matters.  Our Lord comes.  He is there, His Physical Substance right there on the altar – ignored and profaned by unworthy reception of His Body and Blood as if They were a mere “wine tasting”.  That’s why it matters.  Our Lord loves us so much that He still comes and suffers the indignity and indifference of the Rite of Bugnini because He promised that the Gates of Hell would never prevail.  That’s. Why. It. Matters.  Love doesn’t fail.  He has espoused Himself to us as members of His Church.  For better or for worse.  For richer or for poorer.  In sickness and in health.  That which God has joined together, no man will ever tear asunder.     

 

The one about… WHEREIN ANN UNLOADS ON FEMINISTS

(Originally penned and posted on August 19, ARSH 2011.  The despisal remains evergreen….)

Well, this hasn’t been a long time coming or anything. But, for everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven, quoth the Byrds, after Pete Seeger, after Qoheleth after the Third Person of the Triune Godhead.

You know, I’ve had just about enough of these damn feminists. [It's official now.  I've had enough.] Last week there was a minor brou-ha-ha when Michele Bachmann was asked in a debate whether or not she, as president, would be submissive to her husband. This was a clear and obvious attack on Ephesians 5 wherein St. Paul once again reveals human marriage to be patterned directly off of the larger reality of the marriage of Christ, the Bridegroom, to the Church, His Bride. While it was a man who posed the question, the dripping scorn was a direct byproduct of a century of feminist indoctrination and undermining of our culture, and of morality itself.

The first thing we all need to do is examine and identify who feminists are, because this is what everyone dances around and no one wants to talk about – even though we all know the truth. But, if the truth is never, ever spoken or proclaimed, it is made inert. The Word of Truth MUST BE SPOKEN in order to be efficacious in the world. So, here goes:

-Feminists are angry, bitter, jealous, narcissistic, prideful, self-absorbed women who hate men and deeply resent their own femininity.

-Many feminists are lesbians, and thus, by definition, are suffering from massive and acute psycho-sexual disorders rooted in self-loathing.

-In addition to being lesbians, many feminists are also de facto transvestites.

-Feminists hate both authentic masculinity and authentic femininity, and desire to establish themselves as a third gender which dominates and is superior to the other two.

And so, we have three basic groups of people inside the feminist milieu. We have the “third-gendered” quasi-females themselves, who are the core and driving force of the movement. We have women who have been indoctrinated and manipulated by the third-gendered types, and we have the men who have allowed themselves to be castrated by the third-gendered “wymyn” and the normal women and other gelded men who have fallen under their influence.

In terms of numbers, which of these three groups is the largest? Without question, it is the men. The vast, vast majority of men in this culture have been psychologically gelded. They are powerless and impotent, unable to assert themselves or initiate any sort of meaningful action.

They do not act – they watch.
They do not speak – they pander.
They do not defend – they capitulate.
They do not assert – they grovel.
They do not lead – they cower.

And they do these things because they have been conditioned for their entire lives to believe that passive, cowering, groveling surrender is the standard of masculine morality. They have been taught that their masculinity is a disease that must be purged, or at least hidden and suppressed. They have been taught that masculinity itself is a sin. They have been taught this by the feminists, led by angry, bitter, jealous, physically grotesque (by their own choice) lesbians who have anointed themselves the pinnacle of humanity.

I’m sick of these nasty old hags, and I am sick of them daring to speak for me, or claiming to represent me. I am not a lesbian. I don’t hate men. I love them. A lot. (Calm yourselves, people. I am speaking corporately.) I appreciate masculine beauty – without having any desire whatsoever to be physically masculine myself. Why do you think that I decided to wear pink peep-toe heels in that picture of me with my *pink* AR-15? Because I clearly see the intrinsic disorder and dangerous tension inherent in a woman being forced to manifest masculine strength, and insist upon keeping myself tethered to the reality of my femaleness. In short, I know this is all messed up, but I’m not surrendering to the disorder. Yeah, I can throw down and kick @$$ if FORCED TO DO SO, but you lesbian feminist ogresses will take my femininity over my COLD DEAD BODY. In the words of Eowyn just before she slaughtered the Witch-king of Angmar on the Pelennor Fields,

“But no living man am I! You look upon a woman. Begone, if you be not deathless! For living or dark undead, I will smite you if you touch him.”

I appreciate masculine leadership qualities, intellect and social customs – on the extremely rare occasions that I see them anymore. Men should rise when a woman enters a room or joins a group. Men should remove their hats when greeting a woman. Men should open and hold doors for women. A man should never, ever watch a woman carrying something heavy by herself. OFFER to help. If your offer is declined, you are released, but you are obliged to offer because you are at least twice as strong as we are – and those of us who are psychologically normal have NO DESIRE to be as physically strong as you are because that would require physical grotesquery. WE THE NORMAL don’t want to be grotesque – we want to be modestly beautiful, and we want to be beautiful FOR YOU, you morons.

And no, six dollar high-and-tight haircuts, fades, buzzcuts or officer’s cuts are NOT beautiful on females. They are creepy and tranny and wrong. And that goes double for nuns. You want a low-maintenance hair management system, Sister? It’s called a VEIL. It’s the perpetual bridal garment of those women espoused to Christ. Put it on so you stop scaring and confusing young children with your transvestitism, and generally weirding the rest of us out. We don’t think you’re cool.  We just think you’re creepy and pitiable.

And get. off. the. altar.
The priesthood is the exclusive domain of men. Only a man can call down and hold Our Lord in his hands as He becomes totally vulnerable to humanity in the ultimate act of Love. Get in the nave, where you belong, on your knees in adoration and thanksgiving, and quit RUINING EVERYTHING for everyone else. YOU aren’t the center of the universe. Jesus Christ, God Made MAN, is the center of the universe, so back off, sit down and shut up.

And now to the issue of submission, or subjugation. Should wives be subject to their husbands, as St. Paul exhorts? You’re damn right they should. All day, every day. The fact that this question even has to be asked is, by itself, evidence of how far gone our culture is. I truly believe that most people in Western Civilization go through their entire lives without ever actually experiencing love. They experience lust, and they experience various forms of attachment, but most people never actually love. To love IS TO SUBMIT. To love is to make oneself SUBJECT TO ANOTHER. To love is to freely choose to put another above yourself, to literally live for another. Within the context of marriage this dynamic of total self-gift obviously meant to flow in BOTH DIRECTIONS (as the love between God the Father and God the Son, and between Christ and the Church) and is equally expected of men vis-a-vis their wives.

The reason St. Paul went out of his way to specifically admonish wives to remember to submit to their husbands is because women have the greater tendency to slip into self-absorbed nagging shrewishness and take for granted the fruits of their husbands’ labors because those labors are usually done away from the home, and are thus invisible to the wife. A man married to a woman on a reality show about shrewish, materialistic wives (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) just committed suicide because he was run into massive debt by his wife’s ostentatious and utterly avaricious lifestyle demands, and was also having his character assassinated on national television BY HIS WIFE. This woman didn’t love her husband or submit herself to him, she rode him, never sparing the whip, until she literally killed him. This is the opposite of love. This is evil.  It isn’t a victory for the so-called liberation of womankind. It is a scathing indictment of our demonically perverted feminist culture.

I just finished a book of private revelation from the mid-18th century titled “The Life of Saint Joseph as Manifested by Our Lord, Jesus Christ to Maria Cecilia Baij, O.S.B.”  Poor St. Joseph tends to be somewhat overlooked, but this fine book details his exemplary life. It is also completely romantic in the most perfect and pure sense of the word. St. Joseph loved the Blessed Virgin Mary. He really, really loved her. And she loved him. They were mutually submissive in perfect love to one another, but the Blessed Virgin, as the wife, was the more submissive, and St. Joseph, as the husband, fulfilled his role as the guardian, provider and caretaker of both Mary and Jesus. For example, when Joseph and Mary were deciding together their movements during Our Lady’s pregnancy, Mary would always know exactly what God’s perfect will for her and Joseph was because she was receiving interior locutions from Jesus Himself who was in her womb. Joseph would always first ask Mary what she perceived God’s will for them to be, but Mary would ALWAYS turn it around and defer to Joseph, asking him what he had perceived in his prayer, and then joyfully confirmed his words. Even though Mary knew exactly what God’s will was, she always submitted to Joseph in this way, thus bolstering, supporting and underpinning her husband’s masculinity and proper role as head of their household and decision-maker. See how that works? It’s called LOVE.

Jesus did the same thing in relation to His parents. From the moment of His conception, He was in possession of full reason, though voluntarily limited by the physical development and state of His body. Jesus knew He was God, and Mary and Joseph both knew that Jesus was God, but He still submitted Himself to them as their Child because He loved them. Jesus subjugated Himself fully to all of humanity on the Cross, because He loves us perfectly. Perfect love is indeed the submission of the lover to the beloved. People used to understand this. People used to actually love. That is, until the feminists arrived on the scene and demanded everyone be as loveless, bitter and miserable as they were.

Look, you depraved bats. You have now destroyed the lives of fully three generations of people in Western Civilization. You have all but destroyed the institution of marriage and the family. You have murdered upwards of one billion babies in the name of your satanic cult, and you have almost – but not quite – destroyed the Church. And you know what? When you look in the mirror, it isn’t a damn bit better, is it? Not only are you not any happier, you’re actually even more miserable, aren’t you? It’s never going to get any better for you, because you will ALWAYS be a woman, because that is what you are. You will never, ever be a man, and you will never, ever be able to do the things that are exclusive to men. All you can do is present a perverted, grotesque, mutilated, piss-poor counterfeit.

I like being a female. I thank God that he made me a girl. I like that I don’t have hair growing out of my face (much). I like that the circumference of my wrist is 5 5/8ths inches and that the most that I have ever been able to bench press in my life is 135 pounds. I like wearing skirts and dresses and feminine shoes and hats and makeup. Furthermore, I wish that I had someone to submit myself to, to ask and consult and rely upon for provision and decision-making. I realize that the fact that I do NOT have a husband is not an asset to me, but rather a profound poverty and deficiency. I can accept this state in life. What I cannot accept is some 65 year old self-absorbed androgyne in a bad polyester pantsuit and hideous sandals who fancies herself my psychological better wringing every last shred of feminine consolation out of my life, and destroying my culture, my country and the Church. I resent having to act like a man because you have castrated all of the men, who now keep their shriveled balls in a jar atop their television sets. We have had enough of you and of your cultural poison. Repent and retire, or may you rot in the deep cinders for what you have done.  With THIS playing on a continuous, eternal loop….

Latest Ann Interview

With old friend of the blog Warren Pollock.  We talked about the three new modes of attack being aggressively pushed by the oligarchy and their toadies:  Accusations of insanity or psychiatric unfitness, DNA collection, and Facebook/social media dossier building.  Interesting stuff.

WARNING:  COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF COMPLETELY IMMODERATED RHETORIC CONTAINED HEREIN.  MAY CAUSE FEELINGS OF PERSONAL DISCOMFORT, AND FOR THOSE OF ESPECIALLY WEAK CONSTITUTION, NERVOUS DIARRHEA.

Mussels in Butter-Wine Sauce, aka “Hey, Gimme that Loaf of Bread”

1.  I don’t know nothin’ ’bout birthin’ no babies, nor ’bout no mollusks.  Ain’t no mollusks up in where I be from.  I jus’ eats ‘em in restaurants an’ whatnot.  Way I sees it, all a cracka’ need to be doin’ is meltin’ up a mess of butter wit’ a big jug of dat whitey-white wine, boil ‘dem mollusks all up in dat until they be all opening dey mollusk mouths an’ whatnot, then eat dem freaks, sopping’ all dat butter and cracker-wine up wit’ a big ol’ loafa bread.

Dat be “stylistic bad grammar”.  We be commin’ back at dat fo’ shizzle momentarily.  Knowaimsayin?

(It took me three hours to type that with autocorrect on.  True story.)

2.  The follow-up post to the big Contraception essay was one of my all-time favorites.  I’m with Shakespeare: brevity is indeed the soul of wit.  And also the other thing about killing all the lawyers.  Just because it still makes me laugh here it is:

Ann,

You have stated that you are 35 years old and, from what I can tell, have no children. Just wondering what method of birth control is preferred by hypocrites like you.

Signed,
D

Dear D,

Virginity.

Regards-
Ann

3.  It is reported today that J.P. Morgan Chase is demanding that its employees fill out surveys answering whether or not they are “allies of the LGBT community”.  Hey, remember when people were dumb enough to actually believe that all the sodomites wanted was to be “left alone”?  Yeah.  Just like satan.  All satan wants is to just go down to hell and be left alone.  Satan has no interest in dragging anyone to hell with him.  Nooooooo.

This ends with people being arrested, declared mentally ill, shipped to “psychiatric hospitals” and executed for refusing to publicly embrace sodomy.  They will. not. stop.

4.  So I cleaned a rental property the other day in Riverville that had been occupied by Eddie Haskell for the past four months.  “Well, hello Mrs. Cleaver.  What a lovely sweater you’re wearing today.”  Uh-huh.  Thanks, Eddie.  Well, Eddie TRASHED the joint.  If I ever see Eddie again, you better trust Eddie is getting his *** chewed, rehearsed manners notwithstanding.  I scraped Eddie’s chewing gum – piece after piece of chewing gum, up off the floor with a putty knife, where he would just spit it out – including between the bed and the wall.  Dirty dishes were left filled with desiccated food to rot, which Eddie then used as an ashtray.  And when the dirty dishes ran out, he just started using the steps as an ashtray.  I’ll not describe the toilet.  But I will share this: after soaking the bowl for an hour with plutonium-239, I picked up the brush out of one of those brush holder cylinder thingies.  And a piece of poo dropped from the brush onto my foot.  EW!!!!

Shake it off, soldier.  Man up.  Quit yer’ b****in’ and complete the mission.  And you know I did.  But still.  Ew.  Oh, and by the way, trashing a rental property is a highly reliable sign of sociopathy.  Eddie Haskell has no shame, and the absence of shame for one’s behavior is basically what sociopathy (and its more severe sibling, psychopathy) are.  If Eddie Haskell had shame he would have never left the property in that sickening state for some poor, random, unfortunate ex-commodity broker counter-revolutionary Xanthippe to clean up.  #REDFLAG

5.  So Valerie Jarrett, the black-hearted Iranian communist psychopath who is actually running the White House, tweeted this the other day in response to a picture of a picture frame with her picture in it that has little figurines of people bowing and worshiping in front of it:

Don’t worry friends, it was a gag gift. Us strong women don’t need worship — just an economy for the 21st century. #WomenSucceed

Yep.  She really is that stupid.  She used “Us” as a subject pronoun.  This isn’t stylistic bad grammar as in item #1 above.  Nope.  You have allowed not just a conscienceless psychopathic Iranian communist fishwife and her gang of barely-mammalian hangers-on to overthrow your republic, but a conscienceless psychopathic Iranian communist fishwife who is also *teetering on the precipice of mental retardation* to overthrow your country.  And you know what’s REALLY scary?  Jarrett is, BY FAR, the brains in the Obama circle.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: These people have had the wild success they have had for one reason and one reason only.  They are bold.  They aren’t afraid.  They are pro-active.  Just like their father, satan.  Compare that to “us”, who are timid, cowering, terrified of everyone and everything except God Almighty, and either convinced that “moderation” and “prevent defense” is the only way to go OR completely flaccid and supine.  At least Hitler had a passing familiarity with the German language.  What possible excuse will we have?  None.  Absolutely none.

6.  For your “the cover is better than the original” file, here is The Bangles’ 1987 cover of S&G’s “Hazy Shade of Winter”.  I have been revisiting the Bangles oeuvre of late, and I gotta say that those chicks really rocked.  They weren’t a mere gimmick band.

Starting Wednesday Off Right: Visitation 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.

vsitation-with-fetuses

Ah, the Visitation.  Such an important event, and so overlooked.  The Visitation was the event wherein The Blessed Virgin Mary, carrying Our Lord in her womb, went on a road trip to visit her elderly cousin Elizabeth, who was six months farther along than Mary, carrying John the Baptist – see Luke 1:39-56.

1.  The Visitation is the Second Joyful Mystery of the Rosary, and the fruit of this mystery is LOVE OF NEIGHBOR, or CHARITY, which is, of course the highest of the Theological Virtues.  Our Lady, and all those who are truly charitable, are happy helpers.  HAPPY. HELPERS.  In fact… “The Blessed Virgin Mary is far more eager now than then to promote the happiness and console the sorrows of those who fly to her for succor.”

2.   As we know, The Blessed Virgin was Immaculately Conceived without the stain of Original Sin as Our Lord reached back through time from the Cross of Calvary and specially saved her, His mother, from being stained by Original Sin from the moment of her conception.  But did you know that John the Baptist was cleansed of his Original Sin at the Visitation?  Look at the image above.  On the left is The Blessed Virgin with Our Lord in her tummy, and Elizabeth and John the Baptist are on the right.  Our Lord is blessing John the Baptist and thus cleansing him of Original Sin as a third trimester baby.  See how Baby John the Baptist is bowing to Our Lord?  Isn’t that sweet?  Aw.

3.  Our Lord said of John the Baptist, “…there hath not risen among them that are born of women a greater than John the Baptist”.  Let me remind one and all that John the Baptist was considered to be crazypants, and completely “immoderate” in his rhetoric.  Let me remind one and all that John the Baptist’s earthly life ended in a dank, nasty prison cell, face-in-the-dirt, hands bound behind him, as he was held by his scruff like an animal having his head sawed off for “speaking truth to power”, specifically about the sanctity of marriage.

It is a near-universal opinion today that “moderation” in rhetoric, in action and even in belief is the one and only acceptable path forward.  If the enemies of Christ say that 2+2=8, then we MUST be prepared to tolerate and even re-order ourselves and our engagement with the world to the position that 2+2=6, because that is MODERATE – splitting the difference between the Truth and the lie.  And what happens when the enemies of Christ declare that 2+2=1,000,000?  Well, then WE must be prepared to MODERATE our rhetoric, actions and beliefs relative to THAT lie, and take up the thoroughly “moderate” position that 2+2=500,000. Staunchly, and even INTRANSIGENTLY insisting that 2+2=4 will only cause people to hate you, think that you are a loon, and eventually get you killed.

Oh, and “moderation” will also hand satan the victory on a silver platter, but hey, at least people will like you.

o-THE-ADVOCATE-570

So which would you prefer: handing satan victory on a silver platter, or handing Christ victory in the form of your severed head on a silver platter?  John the Baptist, the greatest man born of women, cleansed of Original Sin by Our Lord at the Visitation, chose to put his severed head on the silver platter rather than “moderate”.

St. John the Baptist, pray for us that we may be saved from argumentum ad temperantiam.

The one about… THE ENTIRE, SAD CONTRACEPTION ISSUE EXPLAINED

[Originally penned and posted on January 30, ARSH 2012.  Given the forthcoming SCOTUS decision (as if the Constitutional Republic, complete with three co-equal branches of government checking and balancing each other, and a functioning Rule of Law, still exist - har har, it is to laugh…) I thought it apropos to repost this.  A few contemporary comments inserted IN BLUE.]

The issue before us now is Obama’s “mandate” that Catholic organizations, and all Catholics, and everyone else, must provide health insurance that covers contraception, abortifacients and sterilization with zero copay and zero deductible. Many out there reading may look at this and shrug their shoulders. So what? Everyone’s on the pill, including 95%+ of Catholic women of serviceable breeding age. What are they whining about? Why the sudden outrage?  Quit obsessing.

Exactly. You know, satan is very, very intelligent. But he could be one I.Q. click north of a Kardashian and STILL roll today’s Catholic clergy and bishopric. First, the core question: why is contraception a sin? Let’s start with a quote, and see if you can figure out which Pope or prominent Catholic thinker said this:

“The abandonment of the reproductive function is the common feature of all perversions. We actually describe a sexual activity as perverse if it has given up the aim of reproduction and pursues the attainment of pleasure as an aim independent of it. So, as you will see, the breach and turning point in the development of sexual life lies in becoming subordinate to the purpose of reproduction. Everything that happens before this turn of events and equally everything that disregards it and that aims solely at obtaining pleasure is given the uncomplimentary name of “perverse” and as such is proscribed.”

Hmmm. John Paul II? Nope. Aquinas? Nope. Chesterton? Nope. Benedict XVI? Nope. No, that little quote came from the lips of the atheist father of psychoanalysis and no friend of the Church whatsoever, Sigmund Freud. Sorry. I tricked you a little.

Freud essentially echoed the Church’s teaching, which at the time was completely nominal and universally understood as COMMON SENSE across the entirety of civilized culture, from Catholics to Protestants to Jews to even atheists. Think about that.  Think about a world, still very, very much within living memory, in which EVERYONE, including atheists, fully understood that to mechanically or pharmaceutically prevent the transmission of life during sex, or to engage in a sex act of any stripe that was not ordered towards procreation was wrong and detrimental to society as a whole.  This isn’t to say that sins against the 6th commandment never happened, but they happened far less frequently, and most importantly, there was SHAME attached to these sins.  Today, for the first time in human history, these sins are not just tolerated, but publicly celebrated and now even COERCIVELY DEMANDED by the state to be participated in, promoted and celebrated.

So Freud wasn’t “in cahoots” with Christianity in making his statement any more than he would have been in cahoots with any religion by saying theft is wrong. Everyone understood that sex totally removed from the reproductive function was perverted and would inevitably lead to profound societal ills if allowed to flourish.

It wasn’t until 1930 that the Anglican Church (surprise) made the first concession toward contraception, but only in very special cases. Well, not unlike medical marijuana, pretty soon everyone had a “special condition”, the Anglicans, being a schismatic cult founded by a murderous fornicator, briskly ratified contraception, and then by the time the pill rolled out in 1961, pretty much every other Christian Protesting sect had capitulated to the screeching and whining of their members (But we WAAAANT the pill!) in an effort to keep everyone happy and the collection plates brimming, and thus the entire edifice fell. A little over a decade later, the murderous slaughter of children was “legalized” in the United States, insomuch as killing babies can ever be truly “legal”, which is never. Not being satisfied with that, the Marxist-satanic axis is now demanding that contraception and abortion be available on demand at no out-of-pocket cost as a “human right”, subsidized entirely by the citizenry of the former United States under the forced coercion of the Internal Revenue Service.

Oddly, nay, SHOCKINGLY, nay, UNEXPECTEDLY, after the ratification of contraception and its corollary abortion, illegitimacy rates SKYROCKETED. Divorce rates SKYROCKETED. Adultery SKYROCKETED. Homosexuality is now not only out of the shadows, but is militantly demanding a specially protected status on par with race, if not a superior status. The institution of marriage is almost dead. Pedophilia is in the early stages of being normalized, and ephebophilia, or sex with pubescent adolescents, is now almost fully normalized in the entertainment industry. As Freud said, if you take the reproductive function out of sex, then ALL BETS ARE OFF. You can pout and whine about this all you want, but you know that it is true. LOOK AROUND. Turn on your television. Look at the perverse filth that is pumped out day after day, getting worse and more perverted with each passing season. LOOK AT YOUR FAMILIES. Look at the divorces.

Look at the children WHO AREN’T THERE.  Almost all of you reading this, given my demographics, should have more children (and now grandchildren) right now.  But you thwarted their existence.  Mourn the children that God desperately wanted to give to you that you pridefully refused, mostly for the love of money.

Looking for an economic argument? Sure. Just today, ZeroHedge.com posted this piece on Japan’s age demographics and how Japan is utterly, totally and completely economically screwed because they have contracepted themselves to death in the last half-century. I hardly think the “Tyler Durden” crew subscribes to orthodox Catholic teaching on the subject.

So far we have established that sex not ordered towards the transmission of life is gravely sinful. If the transmission of life is blocked, either through chemical sterilization (pill), mechanical sterilization (tubal ligation, vasectomy, condom, diaphragm) or perverse acts that have nothing to do with the transmission of life, (masturbation, withdrawal, anal, oral), then the act is itself nothing more than a dehumanizing, objectifying USURY of another person AND one’s self as a point of utterly self-serving masturbatory friction.

Do you think it is just a crazy coincidence that the people who have been pushing humanity into using themselves and each other as nothing more than soulless pieces of masturbation meat are the same people who view humans as nothing more than economic units to be harvested and then exterminated? Do you think it is just a crazy coincidence that these same people who have told you that having children is a “punishment” and “irresponsible” are the same people who want to get you totally and utterly dependent upon THEM? Do you think that it is just a crazy coincidence that the same people who want to force you to pay for contraception and abortion are the same people who murdered WELL over 100 million people, NOT counting abortions, in the 20th century alone? When are you going to understand that Marxism is satanic and from hell itself, and that contraception is one of the cornerstones of Marxism and totalitarian oligarchy?

But Ann, but Ann, what about post-menopausal women? Or women who lose their fertility due to illness? Are you saying that once a woman reaches menopause (or loses fertility due to illness) that married couple should stop having sex? Nope. First, menopause is God’s doing. He engineered us that way, and it is not a choice. Illness are also out of our control. Second, two of the major figures in scripture were conceived and born to elderly, very post-menopausal women. The first was Isaac, miraculously born to Abraham and Sarah when Sarah was a very, very old woman as a result of Abraham and Sarah having good ol’ married sex. Abraham and Sarah never had children before Isaac because Sarah was “barren”, perhaps due to some illness or physical condition. Isaac was an intense foreshadowing of Christ, the only son and sacrifice of his father, made to carry the wood upon which he was to be sacrificed upon his back. However, God saved Isaac and ultimately provided Himself as the Sacrifice. The second post-menopausal baby was John the Baptist, again the forerunner of Christ. He was conceived naturally, yet miraculously due to old age, by Elizabeth and Zacharias. These occurrences clearly ratify post-menopausal sex between married couples, and sex between married couples who are “barren”, which still points to, recalls and celebrates the transmission of life.

Now to the nitty-gritty. For forty-plus years, Catholic priests and bishops have been either glazing over, silently condoning, or defiantly telling people that contraception is not a sin. 95+% of Catholic women in the West have contracepted at some point in their adult lives. And now, the Marxist-satanic-totalitarian Obama regime is making its move, and the first tactical move is coming at the Church exactly where it is the most weak: contraception. How can the Church expect to marshal an army to lay down their lives and fight if the priests and bishops have been passively condoning the very sin that the Obama regime now want us to subsidize? This is why I said at the beginning that satan is intelligent, but he could be middling to dumb and still roll the vast majority of priests and bishops today. If you couldn’t see this coming, then I have a bridge in New York City I’d like to sell you.

But why did the priests and bishops dissent – OPENLY, including the Winnipeg Statement and the infamous petitions of dissent, one published in the New York Times, in the summer of ARSH 1968 - and not speak out against contraception for these last fifty years? Simply, because at EXACTLY the same time as Marxists were pushing for contraception in the secular arena, that same Marxist cabal was simultaneously recruiting and infecting the Catholic Church with homosexual priests and nuns. The doors into seminaries were guarded by Marxist-homosexualists beginning in earnest in the 1960s. Homosexual men were recruited and preferred by seminary entrance committees, which were largely staffed by lesbian nuns. Heterosexual men were either outright rejected or were driven out by sexual harassment and even sexual assault. Many seminaries turned into nothing more than homosexual brothels. It is safe to say that the majority of Catholic priests ordained in the 1970s and 1980s were indeed homosexual. Not all, but the statistical majority. The Marxist infiltration of the Catholic Church in the 20th century was a resounding success. In fact, it is probably the most effective attack on the Church to date in terms of the sheer numbers of people that it ultimately drove away, drove into mortal sin, or prevented from being conceived and born at all.

This homosexual infestation of the priesthood, bishopric and orders of nuns is why there has been this heretical winking approval of contraception. If homosexual priests, bishops and nuns were to honestly explain why contraception is sinful, namely the fact that any sex act that is not ordered toward the transmission of life is intrinsically perverted and reduces the partners to nothing more than usurious pieces of meat to be used for masturbatory friction, they would be indicting and damning their own perverted and disordered lusts. The homosexuals, convinced of their “right” to their own perverted lusts, thus intentionally led the faithful astray. Then, looking out over the sea of artificially sterilized heterosexual couples, they told themselves, “If these breeders can screw each other for fun and nothing else, then so can I! God, if it even exists, may send me to hell, if that even exists, but He’s going to have to send all of these pathetic heteros to hell too. Heh.”

The heterosexual priests that did make it through seminary were also largely indoctrinated and influenced by the Marxist-homosexualist milieu. The one kind of man that was almost totally purged from the ranks of the priesthood in the 1970s and 80s and early 90s ordination classes was the strong, masculine man. A few made it through, but not many. So even the heterosexual priests skewed “soft”, and were the kind of men who lived in fear of offending anyone, and who would water down the Truth in order to attract people, BE PERSONALLY LIKED, and, perhaps more to the point, to attract money into the collection plate.

All shall love me and despair.

All shall love me and despair.

And here is where you Protestants come back in. The soft Catholic priests lied to Catholics about the sinfulness of contraception because the priests feared that the Catholics, if told the truth, would leave the Church (and take their collection plate dollars with them) and just go to ANY Protestant church, all of which had happily accepted the evil of contraception years before. And that is exactly what many, many Catholics did. You convinced Catholics to REJECT AND WALK AWAY FROM THE EUCHARIST AND THE HOLY SACRIFICE OF THE MASS so they could have sex without being “punished” or “burdened” with a child. Good luck with that one at your Particular Judgment. That’s not going to be fun.

And so, that is the story. The Marxist-satanic Obama regime is proceeding exactly according to plan. The last fifty years have seen the chessboard cleared of most of the defensive pieces. The King is heavily exposed, and is now in check.

How do I suspect this will play out? The Catholics in the United States will do NOTHING in response to this “mandate” by the Obama regime. Again, why would they? Most of them have been told by priests for their entire lives that contraception isn’t really that big of a deal (wink) [QUIT OBSESSING. WHO AM I TO JUDGE? or, my new favorite: "The difficulties that arise in relation to natural law can be overcome through more attentive reference to the biblical world, to its language and narrative forms, and to "propose bringing the issue to public discussion and developing the idea of biblical inspiration and the 'order in creation,' which could permit a re-reading of the concept of the natural law in a more meaningful manner in today’s world."], and most of the breeding age Catholics are today contracepting and want to continue contracepting. The next move will be for the Obama regime to start suing orthodox priests for hate crimes or incitement. The first such lawsuit was filed in Ireland late last week.

The priests and bishops, being the mostly weak, cowardly, politicking, effete embarrassments [whose top priority is being personally popular and loved by the world] that they are, will fold. Sadly, even the most strong and bold bishops will do nothing more than threaten to “call or write your representative”, when at MINIMUM they should be calling for a federal tax strike from the pulpit every single Sunday (and should have declared a tax strike 39 years ago when the Roe v. Wade ruling came down). There will be, at some point, an informal schism. [I'm thinking… October of ARSH 2014 might be a good guess.] The Catholic Church in America will quietly acquiesce to the Obama regime in order to keep the money flowing and the 501(c)(3) slavery provision intact, and will thus cease to be Catholic. The TRUE Church will then be cut off from the mainstream and go underground. This cleavage will almost perfectly align with the Order of the Mass. The Novus Ordo “new Mass” parishes will surrender to the Obama regime because the Novus Ordo Mass was an invention and a tactical maneuver by the Marxist-homosexualist infiltrators in the 1960s. The Traditional Latin Mass parishes, and those priests, religious and laity who pray the Latin Mass will remain faithful to Our Lord, will be forced to go underground, and will eventually be hunted, imprisoned and killed.

Are you shocked by that last sentence? Why? Can you please name me a Marxist regime in the last one hundred years that DID NOT hunt and kill orthodox Catholic priests? Do you honestly believe that this regime is any different? Do you think that American psychopaths are somehow different from German psychopaths, Russian psychopaths, Chinese psychopaths, Vietnamese psychopaths or Latin American psychopaths? If you do, then you are a fool.

And once again, I find it to be nothing short of disgusting that I have to be the person to explain all of this stuff. Would you priests, PLEASE, literally FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, grow a pair and TEACH PEOPLE THE FAITH? They don’t know. Most of them have no idea what the Trinity is, that Jesus is God, and almost none of them have any clue whatsoever about the Eucharist.

Once you have covered that, you can explain contraception to them. But start with the Eucharist. Because if you say the Mass in English, anyone sitting anywhere behind row three probably has no idea. You know how you can tell? Look at how they’re dressed. If they believed in the Real Presence, they wouldn’t be wearing a cutoff football jersey, dirty sweatpants and flipflops and checking scores on their phone during the consecration. And those are the women.

Negative Nominal Interest Rates: Highway to a Cashless, Statist Hell

Sign Points to Hell

I warned about this in part two of my 2.5 hour Economics Video Presentation back in November of ARSH 2012, and, sure enough, it has now happened.  Because, as I have been saying all along, for anyone who knows ANYTHING about ANYTHING having to do with economics, finance and/or banking, and who does not have their brain bucket completely and firmly inserted up their rectal vault, it is obvious what is happening and how the chain of events will unfold.  If a mouthy broad with a mere bachelor’s degree in animal husbandry from a land-grant university can see this stuff coming years in advance, what excuse do your so-called leaders and media “experts” have?   Oh, yeah.  I forgot.  They’re all either teetering on the precipice of mental retardation, or are black-hearted psychopath whores.  Or, as with Nancy Pelosi and countless others, both.

Mario Draghi, chief psychopath of the European Central Bank went full-stupid on June 5th and announced mandated NEGATIVE INTEREST RATES on the excess reserves of European banks held and the European Central Bank  (which is the equivalent of the Federal Reserve Bank in the U.S.).  What does this mean?  It means that when a European commercial bank deposits excess cash reserves with the ECB, the commercial bank must PAY the ECB to store that money.  The commercial bank does not earn any interest income on that money, it in fact has a percentage of its deposit CONFISCATED from its account every month by the ECB.

As you can see in the article linked above and countless others, the publicly stated rationale behind this negative interest rate paradigm is “stimulus”.  If the banks have to pay to store cash, they will instead lend their excess cash out to customers rather than have a percentage  confiscated every month.  This is utter bee-ess on multiple levels.  These top-tier central bankers know that negative interest rates have NOTHING to do with stimulus, and will, in fact, lead to exactly the opposite.  In fact, they know that the inevitable outcome of negative interest rates is the complete nationalization of the banking sector and total governmental control of all capital flows – which means today a CASHLESS ECONOMY.  Yup.  If you’re interested, I’ll walk you through the chain of events and differentiate between the propaganda that will be used to justify this evil and the reality of how the world actually works.

Banks today are sitting on huge cash reserves because the economy sucks and banks have rightly discerned that lending money into a sucky economy is NOT IN THEIR BEST INTERESTS.  If the economy sucks, then lending money to Joe Schmoe to start a business is likely going to end up in default.  So, if YOU were a bank and your choice was between losing one percent by depositing money at the Central Bank at negative interest, or losing FIFTEEN percent on your loan portfolio because the economy sucks and a high percentage of your borrowers would default on their loans, which would you do?  Well, duh.  You would opt for the SMALLER loss of ONLY one percent, and you would continue to hold cash reserves and be VERY stingy with your loan portfolio.

Okay.  That’s easy to understand, right?  Well, the propaganda coming from the Banksters and willingly regurgitated by the useful idiot class is that negative interest rates will absolutely, positively result in increased lending by banks and thus “economic stimulus”.  And bear in mind, they have been bleating EXACTLY the same line of crap in regards to “quantitative easing”.  They have been saying for YEARS that all of the money printing done by the Federal Reserve and European Central Bank would provide “stimulus” in the form of increased lending.  And, as we all know, that didn’t happen.  All that has happened is that the Banksters have taken the “new money” printed by the Central Banks and pumped it into the stock and derivatives markets, thus blowing a massive, unprecedented bubble.  But Joe Schmoe still can’t get a loan to open a business.  The evil, malignant Banksters KNOW that the whole stimulus meme is a lie.  The useful idiots are so indescribably stupid that they can’t comprehend simple logical progressions even when they have a current experiential dataset right in front of their faces that clearly demonstrates the fallacy: not only does QE and other forms of synthetic “liquidity boosting” NOT stimulate the economy, it actually depresses it even more.

So now banks will be even more incentivized to offload cash by plowing it into relatively “safe” paper that has a higher interest yield than the negative rate at the Central Bank.  What does this imply?  Increased demand for Sovereign debt (bonds issued by nations), and derivatives on Sovereign debt.  Now here is where it gets positively sick.  Very soon, banks will be able to borrow money from the “discount window” at the Central Bank at either zero, or at a NEGATIVE rate.  Think about that.  The Central Bank, because the interest rate is negative, actually pays banks to borrow money from them.  And this utter PERVERSITY is the root of the whole satanic mess.  The first mover in all of this is the evil, perverse Central Bank.  The Central Banks are completely content to pay banks to borrow money – a perversity – because the Central Bank doesn’t give a shit.  It can just “PRINT” as much money as it “needs”.  And, as we have discussed at length, the “printing” of money, money being a proxy for the human capacity to labor and create through time, is simply the leveraging of HUMAN LIFE, specifically at this late hour not just the life of every man, woman and child alive today OUTSIDE the oligarch class, but now generations upon generations of human beings who DO NOT YET EXIST, and are thus utterly powerless to object or mount a counter-revolt.

Okay, so now Bank A goes to the discount window and borrows “new money” from the Central Bank at NEGATIVE one percent, which means the loans generates a yield TO THE BORROWER.  Then, Bank A turns around and plows that money, which is already generating a yield in and of itself, into French Sovereign bonds that yield 1.5%.  Bank A does this because it is certain that France will never be allowed to default – the Central Bank will just keep printing money and printing money to keep France (or any other country) from defaulting on its debt.  So, What is the total yield to Bank A?  The one percent yield on the money borrowed at negative interest from the Central Bank, PLUS the 1.5% yield on the French bonds = +2.5%.  Do you see why this dynamic INCREASES DEAMND for sovereign debt?  It incentivizes governments not to PAY DOWN their debt, but to in fact EXPAND their balance sheets by going deeper into debt.  And because the demand for sovereign debt is increased because there is more money chasing after it, the interest rates are driven DOWN (a lower interest rate is the same thing as higher price on bonds), and thus the politicians tell the people that not only is more government debt good, it is extremely good because “the interest rate is so low”.  And the glassy-eyed sheeple nod passively and return to their tee-vee shows.

This will also increase demand for derivatives on sovereign debt (i.e. repurchase agreements and credit default swaps), again, because the banks are quite confident that the Central Banks will never permit a sovereign default.  And who, pray tell, are the main counterparties on almost all sovereign debt derivatives?   J.P. Morgan, Goldman Sachs and Deutschebank.  Uh-huh.  And where do ALL of the people come from who populate the Central Banks, both in the U.S. and in Europe?  J.P. Morgan, Goldman Sachs and Deutschebank. Uh-huh.

Kids, this isn’t terribly complicated.  Really.

Now, to YOU, the people who PAY FOR ALL OF THIS.

Negative interest rates will be a cost to YOU is two ways.  First, the obvious: you will have a confiscatory tax levied on your bank deposits every month – that’s what a negative interest rate is, sweetie.  It is a TAX on the PEOPLE, NOT the banks, because the banks will pass through to the customers the cost for the bank to store reserves at the Central Banks PLUS a margin.  Next, in an economy that is perceived to be relatively stronger or safer (of which the former United States is still at the top of the list because of its size, both economically and militarily) capital will flow IN to that economy, thus causing ASSET BUBBLES and CONSUMER PRICE INFLATION.  Been to the grocery store lately?  Looked into buying any farm ground lately?  Uh-huh.  So when consumer prices inflate, what do banks do to interest rates in order to cover the resulting increased risk in lending to consumers who now are having a much more difficult time making ends meet?  Yep.  They RAISE interest rates to borrowers.  And so therefore a negative interest rate at the Central Bank not only does not stimulate the economy, it increases the contraction and deepens the depression (because let’s face it, if your economy is at the point that the Central Bank is going NEGATIVE on interest rates, honey, yo’ ass is already in a DEPRESSION, not a recession).

Now to the big ugly.  Since the Central Bank is, despite any and all lying propaganda to the contrary, a government entity backed fully by the government and thus ultimately backed by the people, and since the Sovereign bond market is also a pure function of the government and thus ultimately backed by the people, when banks receive payment on both their capital borrowed from the Central Bank at negative interest AND receive a positive interest yield on their government bond holdings, that means that THE PEOPLE are PAYING THE BANKS… ON BOTH SIDES.

This is a backdoor way of confiscating collateral from the people and using it to RECAPITALIZE THE BANKS.  And also pay the bankster oligarchs’ eight and nine-figure salaries and compensation packages, which, let’s be honest, is their top priority.  

So now you may be thinking that this will cause a feedback loop to occur and rates will continue to be driven more and more negative.  Yes.  Absolutely.  Because the Central Bank will have to keep adjusting its rate down to stay “more negative” than the Sovereign bond and other money markets.  What happens when customer deposit rates go sufficiently negative so as to compel normal people to withdraw their cash from the banks and hold it in cash?  The answer is, the oligarchs will enact government policies outlawing the use of cash.  Think I’m crazy?  Have you tried paying your car insurance bill with cash lately?  Cash.  As in hundred dollar bills.  How about your phone or utility bill?  Guess what.  You can’t.

One of the big reasons why I had to move into the “Van Down by the River” was because I simply COULD NOT FUNCTION using cash.  When I was foreclosed upon because I could not provide the bank with a tax return (because I have declared a tax strike), I began investigating possible rental scenarios in preparing to move.  Kids, you CANNOT rent an apartment “above the table”, pay the utilities on said apartment, insure a vehicle and scores of other necessary expenses in the former U.S. using cash today.  Between IRS liens and mortgage foreclosures, my credit score is destroyed, which also disqualifies above-board rental.  If you think that cash controls and the move to outlaw the use of cash is crazytalk, just stop and think about all of the myriad ways that IT IS ALREADY IMPOSSIBLE to pay with cash.  We’re already 75% of the way there.

So, there would be increased economic depression causing new lending to crater and thus squeezing commercial banks’ margins and causing them to demand a way to dump ALL consumer debt, including business loans, car loans and credit cards, off on the government in the form of guarantees (this is precisely what already happened in the real estate market with almost all mortgages being bundled and dumped onto Fannie and Freddie).  Couple this with the confiscatory tax on deposits AND the paying of banks to borrow from the discount window by the government (aka the people) in order to recapitalize the banks, and what you have is nothing less than the COMPLETE NATIONALIZATION OF THE BANKING SECTOR.  This will inevitably require the outlawing of sovereign currency (cash), which will inevitably lead to the REJECTION of the sovereign currency, and the emergence of a “black” alternative.  We are talking, ladies and gentlemen, about nothing less that the final, complete destruction of the economy, which will inevitably lead to the total collapse of the extant government and what scattered vestiges remain of the Rule of Law.

This, and nothing less than this, has been, is, and will continue to be the explicit goal of the oligarchy that has already overthrown the former United States.  This is part and parcel of the Cloward Piven Strategy.  And it is all happening RIGHT NOW, and given the ignorance and cowardice of the broad populace will not be stopped excluding supernatural intervention, of which we are utterly undeserving.  Get ready, and don’t you dare say you weren’t warned.  And please, spare me any droolingly stupid emails telling me how lending money at interest is evil.  A positive interest rate is ESSENTIAL.  What is immoral, and what actually constitutes the lion’s share of USURY, is UNSECURED lending with no collateral against it.  Well, actually there IS collateral against an unsecured loan:  the future LIFE and productive capacity of the borrower.  THAT is usury.  All Central Bank money printing is therefore USURIOUS because, as we discussed above, it is simply the leveraging of the lives of the people, both present AND future, who comprise the sovereign entity that backs the money of said nationstate.  In other words:  YOU and your descendants for multiple generations hence.

I hope this helps you understand the utterly critical and thoroughly evil concept of negative interest rates.
