STICKY POST – SCROLL DOWN FOR NEW ESSAYS! June ARSH 2019 is Subscription Development Month – Consecrated to the Infant Jesus of Prague

You all know how I loathe this part of the “new normal” of my life.  I come from a background where you simply don’t talk about your own finances.  It just isn’t done.  However, being essentially unemployable, most especially in any formal media setting due to my forthrightness and “controversial” positions, despite the quality and size of the audience I can deliver, my main source of revenue is, sadly, my donation button. How I wish I could be a “tent maker”, or some such trade! Even janitorial work is nearly impossible as private-treaty work-for-cash becomes progressively more untenable. What this DOES provide me with, as we are seeing so clearly now, is a FREEDOM from any coercion and pressure. It is better to have a much smaller income and be free from coercion than to be a millionaire with a sword constantly hanging over one’s head.  I wouldn’t exchange that freedom for anything.  

But having said that, for this month of June ARSH 2019, I will have this post “stuck” to the top of the Barnhardt.biz blog homepage.

BE SURE TO SCROLL DOWN TO SEE ALL NEW CONTENT – and folks, there is going to be a LOT of new content this month, with many days having MULTIPLE posts.

DONATIONS, EITHER ONE-TIME OR IN A RECURRING FORMAT, CAN BE MADE HERE AT MY DONATION WIDGET PAGE, POWERED BY ContinueToGive.

And yes, my non-residential snail mail address is still the same:

If you derive value from the writings in this space, the Barnhardt Podcast, or my video presentations, I sure wouldn’t mind a MODEST donation or subscription, and in fact would be so very grateful.  And for those of you who already are donors/subscribers, THANK YOU. I feel as though I don’t say, “THANK YOU” enough, and the reason is that every time one says THANK YOU, it comes off as a backhanded request for more money.  Just raising the issue seems to imply a “give me more” mentality.  And that makes my flesh crawl.  But, I have been encouraged to do this one month campaign, and then hopefully I can avoid this awkward subject for a good, long time.

This fundraising/subscription drive is consecrated to the Infant Jesus of Prague, who took care of my major estate liquidation in ARSH 2013.  In early ARSH 2013, I received a hate letter via email snarkily taunting me, “What are you going to do?  Ask Sweet Baby J to take care of you?”  And INSTANTLY I knew that that was EXACTLY what I was supposed to do.  And so, all financial matters have since been the particular domain of “Sweet Baby J” – the Infant Jesus of Prague.  I pray, as always, that I have “not too much, not too little”, with a nice savings to cover any emergencies, of which there have been two in the past six years.

I just received word yesterday – 31 May – that another priest has offered to commemorate the Barnhardt Benefactors and Supporters at Mass EVERY DAY, so, we are now up to TWO Barnhardt Benefactor Masses PER DAY, seven days per week.  Please pray for these priests, as they offer the Holy Sacrifice of Calvary for the salvation of your soul, and for all of your intentions.

May “Sweet Baby J” shower you all with His infinite love and mercy!

Infant Jesus of Prague, HAVE MERCY ON US!

 

Don’t Be Dumb. Obedience Has Nothing To Do With It. They’re All Blackmailable.

(I am reposting this today after watching Church Militant’s new revelatory interview with McCarrick rape victim and whistle blower James Grein, who reveals that he was sexually assaulted in a tandem attack by McCarrick and the satanist Cardinal Joseph Bernardin. Voris does a great job with this interview, and Grein’s testimony is compelling. Grein explains that his attorneys specifically told him one year ago to NOT bring up Bernardin, that they should focus exclusively on McCarrick, and that seems credible to me. But now that McCarrick is being held in de facto “protective” custody at the Capuchin friary in Victoria, Kansas so he can’t sing, and leaks are coming out of the Chicago chancery on Bernardin, Grein should and is speaking up. Grein also is completely credible when he says that if he had punched either McCarrick or Bernardin, Grein would have likely ended up in prison for felony assault, as it would have been his word against two Catholic Bishops in the late 70’s. Folks, the sodomite infiltration is massive and ubiquitous, and THEY ARE ALL BLACKMAILABLE. Every one of them has, at the very, very minimum, turned a blind eye.)

I see lots of people trying to explain the near-total silence and near-instantaneous capitulation to Antipope Bergoglio by pretty much every priest, bishop and cardinal on the planet to “obedience” and a “profound concern for the authority of the Petrine Office.”

Absolute nonsense.  These men have been openly disobedient to the Vicars of Christ for over 50 years.  They openly rebelled against Paul VI when he promulgated Humanae Vitae, which upheld The Church’s teaching on the grave sin of contraception.  Paul VI, in fact, being a sodomite, an arch-heretic and almost certainly a Freemason, had promised his underlings that Humanae Vitae would, in fact, ratify contraception as morally licit, however Cardinal Ottaviani intercepted the draft and re-wrote the sections on contraception so that they were, you know, Catholic and not Freemasonic/satanic.  Bishops all over the world OPENLY DEFIED Humanae Vitae, both in public, and in the confessional, telling their priests to likewise tell their parishioners both inside the confessional and outside, that “Rome is wrong” and that the mortal sin of contraception was not a sin, and should not be confessed, much less ceased.  OBEDIENCE?

What about the Novus Ordo Mass, and how there are probably LESS THAN TEN locations on the entire planet whereby the Novus Ordo Mass is celebrated ACCORDING TO THE LETTER of the Rite itself, and the documents promulgated by the Holy See during the 1960s pertaining to liturgy?  OBEDIENCE??  You’ve got to be kidding.

What about Summorum Pontificum?  MOST bishops LAUGH CONTEMPTUOUSLY at groups of faithful that come to them requesting The Venerable Gregorian Rite.  Cardinal Bergoglio, likely False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist, while ensconced in Buenos Aires, lied to and tricked the group of faithful that requested the Tridentine Mass.  OBEDIENCE AND RESPECT FOR THE AUTHORITY OF THE PETRINE OFFICE? Don’t make me laugh.

Speaking of Cardinal Bergoglio, after Pope Benedict XVI’s address at Regensberg in which he identified the Islamic political system as  “evil and inhuman”, Cardinal Bergoglio was summoned to Rome for a standard meeting of Cardinals.  BERGOGLIO REFUSED TO COME TO ROME IN PROTEST TO POPE BENEDICT’S REMARKS ABOUT ISLAM.  Obedience?

No, Antipope Bergoglio is a diabolical narcissist psychopath who is now, and always has been about one thing: PERSONAL POWER.  He rules through FEAR, and in Rome EVERY PRIEST, BISHOP, MONSIGNOR and CARDINAL WITHOUT EXCEPTION IS BLACKMAILABLE.

The infiltration of the Church by Freemasons/Communists, who then recruited and promoted ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY SODOMITES for over fifty years now is so intense, that absolutely EVERY PRELATE IS BLACKMAILABLE.  EVERY PRELATE has sodomite connections, even for the very, very rare prelate that isn’t a sodomite himself.  The faggotry is EVERYWHERE, on both the “left” and the “right and the “far right”.

And folks, where there are faggots, children are being abused.  Period.  There is no such thing as a “harmless faggot”.  Scratch a faggot and you’ll find either an active child predator, a developing child molester, or someone who has turned a blind eye to child molestation to protect “friends”.  The code of omertà among faggots is every bit as strong, if not stronger than the code of omertà in the Italian Mafia.

Folks, the Vatican is now, for all intents and purposes, a bathhouse.  And I am not speaking figuratively.  Cardinals, bishops, monsignors, priests, security guards, lay employees, Vatican Museum tour guides, it is a massive, massive network of sodomites, and the code of silence transcends political or ideological sides – or at least it used to.  The reason that Bergoglio wields so much illegitimate power is because he, although probably a sodomite himself (I’ve received new information out of Buenos Aires – his private life was a deplorable scandal), is now willing, for the sake of his own lust for power, to leverage sodomitical and child abuse activity and blackmail people without hesitancy.  This is a change, and THIS is why the Curia hates him.  He isn’t observing the code of sodomitical Omertà, and they are all, every one of them, TERRIFIED that he will expose them, even though Bergoglio himself is also a pervert with a criminal past. And remember, even for the few prelates left that are not sodomites, they have all, every one, “not done enough” with regards to priests that were under their jurisdiction at one point or another.

We’ve all had beaten into our heads for our entire lives that “what people do behind closed doors is their business…”  Now we are seeing why that is such a pernicious lie.  The filthy, disgusting faggots, by doing their execrable deeds “behind closed doors” have constructed the very matrix of coercion and blackmail that is now being used to DESTROY THE CHURCH AND CAUSE COUNTLESS SOULS TO GO TO HELL.  

I remember well being haughtily lectured by a man that turned out to be one of the most notorious sodomites in the Vatican today (a Vatican Museums tour guide), a man whose b**w**bs are called “a Vatican institution”, that it was mortal sin to even SUSPECT someone of sodomy or being a sodomite without – get this – videographic evidence.  How convenient, so long as there is no video, AND the code of Omertà holds.

Now folks, and I can see this coming a mile away, all of the faggots in the Vatican that are on the “right” or that sympathize in any way and for any reason with “Traditionalists” will be exposed or blackmailed away, and satan wants the MAXIMUM SCANDAL POSSIBLE so that Trad Catholics will also lose their faith.  You think the Michael Voris thing was bad?  Voris was thrown out of seminary for faggotry, granted, but I dare say Voris never sodomized prelates inside St. Peter’s Basilica. But I’ll bet he knows who does.

Remember, this is all about BLACKMAIL. Not obedience.  That is a false premise, and as I repeat ad nauseam, when your base premise is false, your resulting corollaries and conclusions will also be false.  And the more logical steps you take from a false premise, the worse and worse it gets.

A great place to start? How about adopting this TRUE premise:

JORGE BERGOGLIO IS NOT NOW AND NEVER HAS BEEN THE POPE. POPE BENEDICT XVI IS THE ONE AND ONLY LIVING, ALBEIT INACTIVE, POPE, AND HAS BEEN ALL ALONG. BERGOGLIO IS AN ANTIPOPE.

I’m telling you, everything becomes crystal clear when the base premise is true.

 

FLASH: 16:48 pm Eastern Daylight Time, Earthquakes Being Felt in Rome

More info as it comes in from Romans and as the quakes populate on the global seismic websites.

EARLY REPORTS:

Magnitude 3.9 (revised down from 4.1)

only 14 km east of Rome – that is very much inside the “suburban” city. Epicenter the town of Colonna, Italy.

2 km deep (revised from 10km) – not very deep AT ALL.  Almost considered “surface”.  It was well-felt in Rome, described as being every bit as severe-feeling as the October 2016 Norcia quake, which was hundreds of kilometers away.  This was right beneath the city, and SHALLOW. Worst case scenario.

“It was very marked.”

“Under ten seconds.”  “My chair was shaking back and forth, and then I looked at my bookcase and it was too.”

Hey! No hogging the “excommunications” from the Freemasonic Sodo-Church of Amazonian Seances! I want one! Where’s the line?

How completely awesome would it be to LITERALLY have reserved tickets for your Particular Judgment? 😂

These poor people are actually convinced that Antipope Bergoglio can excommunicate them from the Catholic Church – the One True Church that it is crystal, crystal clear Antipope Bergoglio isn’t even a member of, much less the holder of any actual authority. THIS is why the truth of the scandal of the Bergoglian Antipapacy must be shouted from the rooftops – so that people aren’t deceived into thinking that they are actually excommunicated from the Holy Catholic Church. Antipope Bergoglio has as much authority as the Amazon witch doctor with the lip plate.

Folks, being “excommunicated” from the Antichurch by a man that is probably the False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist sounds absolutely AWESOME to me. Where’s the line? I want in on this sweet, sweet action! Bring it!!

The bishop in question here is Bishop McGee of the diocese of Argyll in Scotland.

DESPERADO: A Poker Analogy to Help Understand How the Pope and Canon Law Relate to Each Other

I saw this little analogy in the comment thread over at Mark Docherty’s NonVeniPacem blog, and thought it a brilliant little tool to help folks understand how the Papacy and Canon Law interact.

The Pope is like the dealer in a poker game who is also a player. The dealer sets the rules of the hand, yes? The dealer has the prerogative to call deuces and one-eyed jacks wild, whatever. BUT, what MUST the dealer do? He must DECLARE aloud these rules for the hand before the hand is dealt. Only by declaring aloud any and all rule modifications before the deal, and then playing by those rules himself, does the game have any INTEGRITY.

This is just common sense. If the dealer could hold “rule changes” in pectore, and only declare them ex post facto, or never at all, the result would be an islamic-satanic chaos, utterly devoid of integrity.

Folks, God has many attributes, all of which are preceded by the adjective “perfect”, and one of those attributes is INTEGRITY. God is, Himself, Perfect Integrity.

For many of us converts, it was precisely the INTEGRITY of Catholicism as a whole that was a key signal that this is THE ONE TRUE FAITH. There are no internal contradictions. Leo XIII matches up exactly with Aquinas, who matches up exactly with Gregory the Great, who matches up with Augustine, who matches up with Athanasius who matches up with The New Testament which matches up with the Old Testament.

There is a legal term for the “calling of deuces wild” – it is called DEROGATION.

As I said in the Part 2 video just released, we are under the ARSH 1983 code, warts and all, by the perfect Divine Providence, and lo and behold! Canon 38:

Can. 38 An administrative act, even if it is a rescript given motu proprio, lacks effect insofar as it injures the acquired right of another or is contrary to a law or approved custom, unless the competent authority has expressly added a derogating clause.

Mike drop. Even the Pope, an Absolute Monarch holding an Office given by Christ Almighty Himself, has to call the rules of the hand, before the hand is dealt, if he intends to change them in any way. That’s just common sense, and a rule of integrity so natural and fundamental that even Wild West card sharks lived by this simple code of the Natural Law.

And now, because I simply must:

Desperado, why don’t you come to your senses?

You been out ridin’ fences for so long now

Oh, you’re a hard one

But I know that you got your reasons

These things that are pleasin’ you

Can hurt you somehow

Satanism: Some Things To Remember

(I’m reposting this essay from two years ago because of the news Church Militant is breaking on the satanist Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, who ran the American Church, and hand-picked almost every man elevated to the episcopacy in the U.S. for nearly a quarter century.)

Satanism is real, folks. It isn’t a joke or a “scary story”. It is a very real thing, and it has grown and become more sophisticated over the past century, as one would expect.  Here are just a few things to keep in mind about it.

THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF SATANISTS: ATHEISTS AND BELIEVING

Right now in the (former) U.S., there are satanist groups popping up performing rituals, and even doing charitable drives in order to attract attention.  Many of these groups are ATHEISTS who do not believe in the supernatural (God) OR the preternatural (satan, demons, etc.).  They seem to profess the superiority of the individual human will and reject any notion of objective morality.  They tend to talk a lot about “reason”.  Given their error, they tend to descend into sexual perversion and extreme hedonism as a way of manifesting their rebellion and rejection of God.  But they oftentimes openly profess that they themselves do not believe in satan, demons or hell – only in themselves.

But satan and the demons sure enough do believe in them, and these people are very, very firmly in satan’s grasp.  These people are like the daredevils that free-climb skyscrapers, cranes, etc.  They are playing with death and damnation, whether they believe it or not.

The other kind of satanism is people who actually believe in God, and in satan and hell, and freely choose to worship satan, generally in exchange for power, money and sex.  This is the type of satanism that exists in the Vatican, and was written about by Malachi Martin.  Martin’s writings are true, with only the names changed, but in obvious ways.  In fact, there is a key to all of the names in Martin’s books easily available with a simple web search.  For example, the man who ran the Church in the U.S. from the 1960s through the 1990s, Joseph Bernardin, who was a flaming sodomite, child rapist, and a practicing satanist, was codenamed Cardinal Leonardine.  Like I said, thinly veiled.

These “believing satanists” perform “black masses”, which are ceremonies that ape and completely invert the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.  These “black masses” are said in Latin, and invert, step by step, the Old Rite.  They begin at the end, and go backward.  They involve murder, rape, or consensual sodomy.  Believing satanists, led by Aleister Crowley and later Anton LeVey, entered the 20th century admitting that their “liturgies” were lacking in precision, and that the Latin used was riddled with errors.  Judging by the parabolic increase in the power and influence of satanists both in the Church and throughout the world over the past few decades, apparently they have recruited Latinists and liturgists to “improve” their evil rites.

These believing satanists are Diabolical Narcissists who are literally at war with God Himself, obviously. Many DNs are attracted to the Church thinking that it will provide them with power, adulation and oftentimes sex.  When their lives don’t turn out as they wanted, when the Church and the world fail to fall at their feet, they actually turn against God Himself.  After all, for a DN, the only  truly worthy adversary is God Himself.  Already devoid of love, already devoid of empathy, already devoid of shame, and almost always highly intelligent, some of these people are identified and recruited by satanists.

Guess where satanists have mainly recruited?  Gay bars.  Joseph Bernardin was recruited out of the Columbia, SC gay bar scene when he was a pre-med undergrad at USC in the late 1940s.

And what gay bar scene has the highest concentration of priests, monks and seminarians?  The ROME gay bar scene, specifically the Rome CLERICAL gay bar scene – because there are gay bars in Rome that cater specifically to seminarians and clerics, and to Vatican Museum tour guides laymen who chase seminarians, priests and bishops. Just sayin’.

The credo of satanism is, “The only sin is not to sin. The only shameful act is to NOT be shameless.”  This is very close to Luther’s cry of “Sin boldly!” Thus, satanists have a scathing contempt for genuine piety, principled stands, and morality.  I have learned over the past four years that evil people within the Church will always accuse people with morality of being heretics.  So, for example, a sacreligious sodomite in the Church would accuse a person with a firm belief and understanding of the 6th Commandment of being a “Jansenist”, a “Calvinist” or a “Rigorist”.  Does this correlate 100% with satanism? No, of course not, but the roots of this mindset are satanic in origin.

Satanists, because they are DNs, tend to be very intelligent, high-functioning, charming people.  Satanists would never recruit anyone that couldn’t maintain and project an attractive facade of goodness, much less normalcy.  You would never pick a satanist out just walking down the street.  No drooling, no forked tail, no horns, etc. In fact, it tends to be the opposite – satanists are more likely to be desperately charming, resplendent even, at least superficially.

Satanists will always be connected to extreme sexual perversion and sacrilege.  Remember, any sex act with or by a priest, monk, seminarian, or nun is an act of sacrilege, above and beyond the sin of fornication and/or sodomy. So, for example, a faggot layman that cruises for priests and seminarians is committing a graver sin than the secular faggots screwing each other.  Likewise, a woman that fornicates with a priest commits a graver sin than secular faggots that commit sodomy, or secular heterosexuals that fornicate. The sins of sacrilege are sins of irreligion, which are a subset of the FIRST commandment.  The Ten Commandments are ordered and numbered as they are by God for a reason.  Sins against the First Commandment are the most grave.  Remember, the sin of adultery is the SIXTH Commandment.  So satanists, by definition, are gunning to commit the gravest sins possible, of which sacrilegious fornication/sodomy are the most common.  The fact that satanists engage in sacriligious sodomy/fornication as part of their satanic “liturgies” just puts more icing on the satanic cake.

An interesting characteristic of satanists is extreme, rapid worldly and particularly financial success.  I will not be at all surprised if at the General Judgment, when all is revealed, that the spectacularly evil founder of the Legionaries of Christ, a stone-cold racketeering organization, Marcial Maciel, is revealed to have been a satanist.  Why do I say this?  Aside from the fact that the guy was a bisexual incestuous pedophile rapist who flatly rejected Christ on his deathbed, a huge red flag is the staggering financial “success” of the Legion of Christ racketeering organization itself.  In less than 50 years, the Legion of Christ amassed a fortune of more than $30 BILLION.  That’s approaching something the size of General Motors.  The last figures I saw put the Legion of Christ’s annual operating budget at $650 million, with 650 priests.  That a million per priest per year.  Again, that is a simply staggering figure.  Given the fact that the founder and the upper echelon of the Legion of Christ racketeering cult was almost totally populated by DN psychopath sacriligious fornicators and sodomites, many of whom were child molesters, and ruined so many lives of young people drawn into its cult, it certainly gives one pause.

Another key characteristic of satanists is an overall comportment of untouchability.  They tend to commit crimes and scandals somewhat openly, operating as if they KNOW that they are protected and no one can or will touch them.  We see this in the Church, politics, finance and the entertainment industry.  Now, this can certainly be a characteristic of Diabolical Narcissism, but it also, in context, can point to possible satanism.  People involved in satanism are the epitome of an elitist clique.  Satanists protect and advance each other.  They are the ultimate mafia.  They are all about power, of which money and sex are both subsets. And, it is true that preternatural forces sometimes come into play and facilitate or enable these people’s crimes.  Satan wants these people to “succeed” in dragging more souls into hell.  Again, we need to keep reminding ourselves that satan and the demons are real, and there are preternatural forces in the world.

Now, don’t go accusing every malefactor of being a satanist, just as one shouldn’t accuse every malefactor of being a Diabolical Narcissist.  BUT, be aware of these things, especially in the context of what is going on in Rome and the Vatican.  There absolutely are satanists in the Vatican – how many I know not, but I do know that there are a hell of a lot of sacriligious sodomites and people who give every indication of hating God and being at war with Him and His Holy Church.  So, we should be aware of these things and not be caught by surprise.

I hope this helps.  And I hope I never have to write about it again.

How Fr. Jonathan Morris spent his time off “discerning” whether to dump his priesthood…

“Jesus said to him: No man putting his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” -Luke 9:62

I wonder if Fr. Morris will become a certified sommelier too? After all, all the cool ex-priests are doing it.

Behold the agony of discerning out of marriage vows to Jesus Christ and His Holy Church: at a wine bar in Spello, Italy.

“9 April

Last Sunday was another beautiful day. We had the pleasure to get to know another great man of the Church, Fr. Jonathan Morris, of the diocese of New York.

A very cultured man that has published several successful books and is responsible for TV and radio programs.

Besides being an intellectual, Father is also a great lover of wine, so much so that he visited us with his friends for a wine tasting. On this occasion he was given the favorite liquor of Pope Francis (sic).

We have a date for next year, when we go to New York City.

To the health of all believers and non-believers! Cheers, friends!”

Movie Recommendation: 1931 Silent Film on St. Anthony of Padua

This is a great film of the life of St. Anthony. It is very interesting and beautiful, and the sound track is a mix of “greatest hits” of Classical music. The narration cards are in English and Italian, as it is an Italian-produced film. St. Anthony died 788 years ago today. If you don’t know much about him, this film will help you get to know one of the most universally beloved saints of the Church.

“The Creator of the Heavens obeys a carpenter; the God of Eternal Glory listens to a poor virgin. Has anyone ever witnessed anything comparable to this? Let the philosopher no longer disdain from listening to the common laborer; the wise, to the simple; the educated, to the illiterate; a child of a prince, to a peasant.

-St. Anthony of Padua, died June 13, ARSH 1231

St. Anthony, pray for us!
