The Anti-John the Baptist Is Easy To Spot – He Acts Like Herod

St. John the Baptist Rebuking Herod, Giovanni Fattori, late 19th century

For the Feast of St. John the Baptist, the following is an EXTREMELY prescient and timely excerpt of a sermon of St. Peter Chrysologous who was a Fifth Century bishop of Ravenna in Italy.  I cannot recommend it strongly enough.  Read it slowly, at least twice.  For anyone who is following events surrounding the Bergoglian antipapacy, and specifically the relentless attack on marriage – which really is an attack on The Church and every human being by extension, it is impossible to read this without seeing the absolutely stunning contemporary relevance. Emphases mine. -AB

Today while the virtue of John and the ferocity of Herod are related to us, our innards were shaken, our hearts trembled, our sight grew dim, our mind became dull, our hearing deserted us. For is there anything within human sensation that remains undisturbed within when a large amount of vice destroys a large amount of virtue?

“Herod,” it says, “apprehended John, and had him bound, and put in prison.” (Mt. 14:3) John was the school of the virtues, the instructor of life, the model of sanctity, the pattern of morality, the mirror of virginity, the epitome of purity, the example of chastity, the way of penitence, the pardon of sins, the discipline of faith. John was greater than a human being, equal to the angels, the apex of the Law, the seed of the Gospel, the harbinger of the Apostles, the silence of the Prophets, the lamp of the world, the herald of the Judge, the Forerunner of Christ, the preparer for the Lord, the witness of God, the mediator of the Whole Trinity.

But Herod is the very one who desecrated the Temple, ruined the priesthood, disturbed its proper order, profaned the kingdom, corrupted anything that had to do with religion, the Law, life and morals, faith and discipline. Herod was ever an assassin toward his fellow citizens, a brigand toward people of any distinction, a ravager toward his allies, a robber toward those of his own household, a killer  of the common folk, a murderer of his children, a slayer of foreigners, a parricide towards his own, drenching the land with gore in his bloodthirstiness. And so it is that he gulped down the hallowed blood of John from his enormous cup of cruelty. But now let the reading speak for itself.

“Herod,” it says, “apprehended John and had him bound.” He who had released sins’ shackles is bound with the shackles of a sinner, so that pardon once shackled might not leave any room for pardon. “He had him bound and put in prison.” Herod, you are the one who committed adultery, yet John the Baptist goes to prison? Thus one who is guilty sits in the judge’s place and passes judgment, the persecutor of innocence takes the place of a defender. I ask, where is truth to be found? Where is good reputation? Where is decency? Where is the good name of the public magistrate? In fact, where is God? Where is the human being? Where is decorum? Where is the law? Where are purely natural rights? Everything all at once has been thrown into turmoil, O Herod, because of the way you act, pass judgment, and give orders.

“He apprehended John,” it says, “and he had him bound, and put in prison.” Herod, you are being subpoenaed, his shackles place the blame on you, the prison accuses you, the harm done to John publicly points to you. The one who looks for the reason for John’s arrest finds in you what deserves punishment, and the cause for his distress about John. John, who is recognized throughout the world for his reputation, who is known for his virtue, who is widely renowned for his sanctity, by attracting to himself those who inquire into the harm done to him, sees to it that your incest becomes disclosed to all; he brings it about that you are put to shame in public, since a reproof in private was unable to reform you.

John kept after Herod with warnings, not with an accusation; he wanted him to mend his ways, not to perish; but Herod preferred to perish rather than to reform. To those held captive by crimes, the freedom of innocence become most odious. Virtue is antagonistic to the vicious, sanctity is detestable to the sacrilegious, chastity is inimical to the shameless, integrity is a punishment to the corrupt, temperance is a foe to the wanton; mercy is unbearable to the cruel, godliness to the ungodly, justice to the unjust.

The Evangelist attests to this when he says: “John kept saying: ‘It is not right for you to take the wife of your brother Philip.’ ” This is the reason why John runs afoul. The one who warns the wicked is a considered offensive. The one who rebukes those who are at fault is deemed blameworthy. What John had to say concerned the Law, justice, and well-being; his remarks certainly were not spoken out of hatred, but out of love: but see what kind of reward he received for his devotion from the ungodly one!

“Although he wanted to kill him,” it says, “he was afraid of the people.” It is easy for one to turn away from justice who is motivated by the fear; not of God, but of human beings. This fear can postpone the opportunity to sin, but cannot take away the will to sin. Therefore it is also the case that those whom fear delays from committing iniquity become even more eager for iniquity. It is only the fear of God which corrects minds, banishes offenses, preserves innocence, and bestows an endless capacity for good.

(From Selected Sermons of St. Peter Chrysologus, Sermon 127)

And people wonder why I strongly suspect that Antipope Bergoglio might just be the False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist.

St. John the Baptist, pray for us.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us.

Barnhardt Podcast #054: Speechless Gorillas and Naval Officers

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode, amid a few cases of buzzing interference, we discuss Koko the “talking” gorilla’s final release from a life of chocolatey abuse from Penny Patterson, the media’s melancholy about this precious primate, and set the record straight about the extent of an animal’s ability to communicate with humans. Not that humans are all great communicators: we cover news that broke this past week that the female Officer of the Deck and the female Tactical Action Officer (two people who should be in constant communication when a ship is at sea) were not speaking to one another. It’s not yet know if this was a matter of incompetence or a cat-fight that got out of control but the result was massive damage to a billion-and-a-half dollar ship and funerals for several of the sailors. Our ability as humans to communicate ideas and concepts is a wonderful gift: it would be a shame if our neglect and abuse of this gift resulted in something unfortunate.

Repost: The #MeToo Sex Assault/Harassment Movement Needs To Begin With Men In The Church

(Originally penned and posted in November of ARSH 2017 when the whole Weinstein #MeToo thing broke.  Now with the exposure of the open secret of American Cardinal McCarrick being a serial sodomite assaulter, others are calling for the countless thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of males who have been victims and/or witnesses to these filthy sacrilegious sodomites and their crimes to SPEAK THE HELL UP. Considering that the majority of Novus Ordo priests by now are sodomites (many seminaries specifically purged heterosexual men), and the VAST majority of bishops are sodomites, the victim pool here is absolutely enormous.)

There are literally THOUSANDS of men, both clerics and laymen, who have been propositioned for sodomy, or sodomitically assaulted by priests, bishops and cardinals.  I daresay that most men, lay and cleric, who have been sent to Rome to study or work have a story to tell.  Rome, being the festering cesspit of faggotry that it has been for decades and now, as Edward Pentin has reported, is now the worst it has been in living memory, precisely because of the Bergoglian Antipapacy, and the fact that the faggots are in power and feel they are legally untouchable.

I think it is high time that these filthy faggots be disabused of their misperception.

Anyone out there reading this ever been propositioned for sodomy or sodomitically assaulted by a priest, bishop or cardinal – not just in Rome, but anywhere in the world?

I know there are.

Why not speak up?  Why not start naming names? Just as with the Weinstein and Spacey victims, the fact that no one spoke up only enabled the assault and rape of all of the subsequent victims to happen. If you are one of the men who has been propositioned or assaulted by one of these filthy, disgusting faggots that are poisoning and destroying the Church, are you cool with the idea of ONE MORE KID, ONE MORE SEMINARIAN, ONE MORE GOOD PRIEST being propositioned for acts so disgusting, so vile that they cry out to heaven for God’s vengeance?  Are you comfortable to let the sacrilege continue?  Are you content to let another class of seminarians or young priests be scandalized at best, and assaulted or raped at worst?

Look, do you honestly think that you are THE ONLY MAN that filthy cleric or prelate ever did that to?  Don’t you think that this is a pathological behavior? Don’t you think that grooming and maneuvering to get lads and men in the position to be propositioned or assaulted is a highly planned, practiced and repeated activity?  Don’t kid yourself – the reason that priest or bishop propositioned or assaulted you isn’t because you are so incredibly physically desirable.  He did it because you woke up breathing with a penis.  Period.  You were an object – a piece of meat.  Nothing more.

Gentlemen and Fathers, it is time to speak up and expose these filthy, soul-killing, God-hating, sacrilegious sex pervert wretches.

St. Peter Damian, pray for us.

Christ, have mercy on us.

Art and Sex Perverts – My Thoughts

Okay, I’ll put some thoughts here and also post them over on the AmericanDigest.org thread.  Quite a thread over there (although there are a few comments with unedited language – not for the eyes of children)! I hope this spurs a continuation of the discussion.

The first point that needs to be addressed is the notion that almost no art today is produced without the involvement of sodomites or other sex perverts, whether it be in production, set building, backing or orchestral musicians, etc.  My answer goes directly back to my original thesis:  the issue is whether or not the art itself projects an aesthetic of sexual perversion, or points to or is perverse and obscene.  Can I promise you that every contractor or laborer that worked on the building or remodeling of the house I live in was sexually normal and pure?  Of course not.  If the man who installed the bathroom tile were a sex pervert, how could I know that, and even if I somehow did, does that mean I should move out of my house?  Well, not unless he arranged the bathroom tiles in the shape of a phallus.  In exactly the same way, we can’t know who every orchestral musician or set builder was, but what we can know is whether or not the ART ITSELF points to or glorifies sodomy.

And, as an aside, this is why you get your house blessed by a priest early and often – at least once per year at either Epiphany or Easter.  Not only is the sacramental a conduit of grace, but it also gives one peace of mind.  And, may I just ask, have you ever slept in a hotel?  At this point, every hotel room in the western world is pretty much guaranteed to be a crime scene – because remember, sodomy is a crime.

This reminds me of the heresy of Donatism, which is a MASSIVE problem in The Church today.  Many very pious people are tempted to believe that the interior state of the soul of the priest determines whether or not the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is offered.  Hence, many people fall into the heretical trap that all Masses and sacraments performed by sodomite priests (or heterosexual fornicator priests, etc.) are invalid, and that any priest in the state of mortal sin is incapable of confecting the Eucharist.  This is, of course, TOTALLY WRONG.  Considering that it is, by definition, impossible for any of us to know the state of the soul of anyone else, much less a priest, how IN THE WORLD could Jesus Christ hold us responsible for that, and how could Jesus Christ establish His Church and His Sacraments such that they would be not just illicit, but INVALID a non-trivial percentage of the time with it literally impossible for the faithful to know either way?  This argument maps closely to what we are talking about with art.  How could people be held responsible for what Tchaikovsky did, or whatever sodomite Renaissance painter?  Can one determine from the 1812 Overture that Tchaikovsky was a sodomite?  Of course not.  Nor can one determine from da Vinci’s Annunciation what da Vinci’s sins were.

I’d also like to revisit a point I made not too long ago, namely that up until just a few short decades ago, many people literally did not know about sodomy, homosexuality, transvestitism, pedophilia, bestiality – none of it.  At all.  Lots and lots of people in the Christian world went through life never knowing that there were people who engaged in same-sex sins.  I cited a clip from the 1980s sitcom “The Golden Girls”, in which the promiscuous, Jezebel character Blanche, confuses “Lesbian” for “Lebanese” and has to have it explained to her.  It got a huge laugh not because it was implausible, but because it WAS plausible.  THIS is why the flamboyantly gay pianist Liberace was as popular as he was, and with the demographic that he was popular with – old women.  When Liberace came mincing out out on stage in a pink sequined tuxedo, it literally NEVER OCCURRED to most of the elderly women in the audience that Liberace was a sodomite because a non-trivial percentage of them were totally unaware that sodomy existed on earth – and I’m not exaggerating.  And THIS ties back to the piece I just wrote on how Diabolical Narcissists (when all sex perverts, by definition, are to one degree or another) derive their greatest satisfaction from watching people watch them as they act out.  Liberace got his biggest rush from the fact that a bunch of old women who went to the United Methodist church every Sunday and probably taught Sunday school were his biggest fans, and that he was rubbing his sexual perversion in their faces, and they were too “stupid” and “unsophisticated” to even realize it.  Should they have at least been off-put by Liberace’s aesthetic, especially when he stopped wearing normal black tuxedos in the 1960s and started wearing the ridiculous outfits that he did?  It is hard to say.  Given how jaded and steeped in perversity we all are, it is pretty much impossible to revert back to a mindset innocent of all of the filth we now know.  This is a perfect example of how only Christ can judge the soul of man.

The next point is the notion that ONLY sodomites are good at certain types of art.  Again, this is false, and the best example of this is ballet and dance in general.  First, ballet.  It is taken as axiomatic that all male ballet dancers are sodomites just by virtue of the fact that ballet is intrinsically graceful.  But this notion is false – a product of the fact that sodomites infected, were tolerated and then pretty much took over ballet.  But isn’t it interesting that the two best male ballet dancers of the 20th century were totally heterosexual – Mikhail Baryshnikov and Fernando Bujones.  Both were incredibly good dancers, graceful yet powerful and almost preternaturally athletic, and also compelling in their roles as male leads, interacting romantically with the ballerina, as almost every ballet entails.  Isn’t is telling that in a field as saturated with sodomites as the ranks of male ballet dancers is, that it was the heterosexuals that were head and shoulders above the rest.

Two other great male dancers of the 20th century also bear mentioning: Fred Astaire and Gene Kelley – both straight.  Astaire projected masculine elegance, and was at his best serving as a mobile stage decoration for Ginger Rogers, while Kelley was the all-American athlete-dancer.  Donald O’Connor gets an honorable mention here, too.

In my next entry on this topic, I will specifically deal with Michelangelo, who seems to always be cited in conversations about this subject.

Cruise over to AmericanDigest.org if you have anything to add.

Baryshnikov at his peak.  The pirouette sequence at the end is insane.  Look at the control at the finish.

Art Created By Homosexuals: A Tandem Post and Discussion at American Digest Blog

I am pleased to point one and all to a “tandem post” between Barnhardt.biz and Gerard VanderLeun’s blog, AmericanDigest.org .  This post and conversation came about a couple of days ago in a comment thread under a post GvL made of a Noel Coward song.  I actually linked to another Noel Coward song, “Let’s Don’t Be Beastly to the Germans” in the show notes of Barnhardt Podcast #051, and then GvL posted “What’s Going to happen to the children when there aren’t any more grown-ups?” – certainly an incredibly prescient question and diddy from some 60+ years ago.

I leave comments on blogs hardly ever, but I did leave a quick comment making the point that it is quite a commentary on today’s culture when a flamboyant sodomite – as Noel Coward was – displays the kind of virile moral leadership in calling out the descent of western culture that we can only FANTASIZE about today.  Put another way, things said by queeny, British fags of 60+ years ago are now so far to the “right” socially that they would be characterized by the howling moonbat SJW’s as “fascist” or “Nazi” or whatever the non-sensical pejorative du jour is.

This, in turn, spurred a conversation about homosexuals in art and how decent, moral people should relate to such.  The key question is this: Is it morally licit to consume art (music, painting, dance) that we know, after the fact, was made by sodomites?  My thesis is this:

Consuming art created by sodomites is permissible so long as the art in question does not have a “sodomite aesthetic”, and does not point to nor glorify sexual perversion. 

The Russian classical composer Tchaikovsky was a sodomite.  Is it okay to listen to his music?  Here is the Pas de Deux from the Nutcracker Ballet – one of my favorite pieces of Classical music. Does this have a sodomite aesthetic or glorify sexual perversion?  I would say no.

In the spirit of self-correction, the critique of Noel Coward that has to be made is that his entire persona, like that of Liberace or Elton John, was, as the Brits say, “camp”, that is, queeny.  Noel Coward inspired the chorus boys in the West End (London’s theater district, like Broadway in New York), to openly manifest as fags, which carried on through the years into the growing cancer of “poofterism” in British culture.  THAT is a problem.

You will see over on the AmericanDigest post that one of GvL’s readers is a male heterosexual professional classical musician who has worked for years in San Francisco, and thus has some insights to share, and that’s what really opened up the discussion.  As you will see, the readers shot down his premise that to “demand a life absolutely free of homosexuals, you will condemn yourself and your loved ones to a life without art.”  That is so very, very wrong.

I’ll leave the intro at that, and recommend you to click over to the post and thread to provide any thoughts and input.  I’ll will be adding additional points in the comment thread over there, too.  And I have plenty.

Gett’em While They’re Hot, Folks!

Our friend over at NonVeniPacem blog has set up a VERY limited time T-shirt store, inspired by the T-shirt donned by the new Deputy Italian Prime Minister, but in English, and with a very important linguistic precision.  Deputy Prime Minister Salvini’s T-shirt said “My Pope is… Benedict”, but that phraseology is theologically wrong.  The identity of the Pope is NOT a question of our individual conscience.  It is an ontological reality, applicable to everyone.  There is no “my Pope” and “your Pope”.  There is only THE Pope.  Therefore, to assign the possessive to the Papacy is a problem in and of itself.  Thankfully, Non Veni Pacem has corrected this, and his T-Shirt reads, “Pope Benedict XVI… Still Reigning”.

YAY!!! Because it’s TRUE!!!!

Since almost all of the major “Trad Catholic” websites actively censor any discussion or comment on the CANONICAL VALIDITY (Canon 188) of Pope Benedict XVI’s attempted faux invalid partial abdication, wouldn’t it be instructive to see Mr. Non Veni Pacem have a huge response to his T-shirts, so much so that he might even have to extend the offer?

HERE IS NON VENI PACEM’S SPECIFIC PAGE.

HERE IS A DIRECT LINK TO THE T-SHIRT VENDOR PAGE.

MINE HAS ALREADY BEEN PURCHASED, AND IS EN ROUTE TO BARNHARDT in the VAN DOWN BY THE OTHER RIVER.  Just sayin’. (Thanks!)

Wouldn’t this make an excellent, EXCELLENT gift for Uber-Trad Father’s Day?  And remember, our good and Holy Priests are our spiritual fathers!

As Frank Bartles and Ed Jaymes said so well, and so succinctly in the days of my youth, “Thank YOU for your support.”

The Stale Big Mac Maneuver

After much foot-dragging and procrastination, and with great loathing, I am rolling out, under counsel, what I am calling “The Stale Big Mac Maneuver”.

Long story short, I have been advised and encouraged to develop and build a broad “subscriber base” using my current ContinueToGive donation platform, as is the norm with most “podcasters”, in order to regularize cash flows, and to build up savings in the form of pre-paid rent and well-defended FRNs.  Even though I struggle with the notion, I am assured that it is not unreasonable, and is even responsible and prudent for an adult human to strive for financial stability, savings, and an ability to absorb unforeseen expenses. It’s so crazy, it might just be true!

Thanks to SuperNerd, we have now produced 53 Barnhardt Podcasts in just over a year, including the hiatus after the arrival of Tiny Princess.  I enjoy doing it, SuperNerd enjoys producing it, and, apparently, quite a few people enjoy listening to it.  Hooray!  And, of course, blogging continues apace here at Barnhardt.biz .

Why is it called “The Stale Big Mac Maneuver”?

This name originally comes from a name SuperNerd gave to topics on the Barnhardt Podcast that we had beaten to death (cough, the Bergoglian Antipapacy, cough).  As I started thinking economist thoughts about utility and value, I started getting angsty about what dollar value of utility I am actually able to deliver here.  I know that many of my benefactors in their extreme munificence already WAY overcompensate me for the product I provide (leaving aside the Benefactor Masses, which are my duty).  I thought to myself that since a stale Big Mac costs about $5.25 today, that is the dollar level of utility that I feel I can provide to a benefactor/subscriber per month. Maybe.  If I try real hard. That is what I have been advised to do and am looking to develop.

But always at the forefront of my mind is the fundamental truth of monetary theory: money is a  fungible proxy for the human capacity to labor, produce and create through time.  Every dollar someone gives to me is a piece of their life – time they spent working, producing, creating, which was then turned into dollars when someone exchanged value-for-value.  Money isn’t pieces of metal, pieces of paper, or zeroes and ones on a computer server.  Money is, at its core, quantities of human lives in exchangeable form. That is a deeply humbling and intimidating thought, especially when all one does is rant and rave on the innerwebz.

A Few Words To Existing Benefactors

If you are an existing benefactor, and you are thinking to yourself, “Uh-oh.  Ann is talking about money.  This must mean that I’m not doing enough…”, let me disabuse you of that false premise immediately.  Not only are my existing benefactors stunningly munificent, I actually WORRY that some might even be TOO munificent.  Sometimes a donation notification will come into my email box and I will think to myself, “What percentage of this person’s rent or mortgage payment is this?”  I worry.

Which brings us to another point that it is morally incumbent upon me to say: If meeting your monthly rent or mortgage payment is EVER in doubt or question, YOU SHOULD NOT BE DONATING/SUBSCRIBING TO ME.  Period. Please – PLEASE, just pray for me, and for the priests that offer the Barnhardt Benefactor Masses, and the weekly Requiem Mass.  Please.  Remember, the Barnhardt Benefactor Masses are offered every day for my benefactors and SUPPORTERS.  God knows who you are. As we all heard on Saturday morning cartoon commercials when we were kids, “NO PURCHASE NECESSARY”.

A third note for existing benefactors who are using the ContinueToGive recurring platform: I get quite a few notices of “failed transactions” on recurring donation profiles due to expired credit cards, and cards that have been deactivated.  Tangential story: I just had to get my one remaining plastic card re-issued last month as I made the stupid mistake of using an outdoor ATM.  Apparently, the new “thing” in credit card fraud is installing clandestine chip readers in outdoor ATM machines which read and record the card numbers, and then are extracted by the criminals, and the harvested numbers are sold on the black market.  In my case, criminals in Washington D.C. had purchased my card number (I’ve never set foot anywhere near Washington D.C. in my life), and proceeded to max out my card (temporary authorizations – none of the transactions went through) with failed $500 ATM withdrawal attempts – apparently they were trying to guess the PIN. I got a fraud notification within minutes from the credit card company, but a new card had to be issued, which took just over a week.  It is a major, major inconvenience, and can really put a person in a pinch.  I will never use an outdoor ATM again. But back to the original point, I know there are quite a few recurring donation profiles on ContinueToGive that fail every month.  So just a heads-up there.

A brief summary of my situation and expenses

My two major expenditures, by far, are rent (which includes all utilities and internet), and food/toiletries.  I have a cellphone, which isn’t very expensive at all – I hardly make telephone calls anymore. I have no health insurance, and recently availed myself of the neighborhood walk-in clinic, and was able to see a doctor and get a course of antibiotics and steroids for my dual ear infection for less than $100 – which was a relief.  This was the first time I had seen a doctor or taken a prescription in over ten years.  Not bad.

I have no car, and am able to walk everywhere.  When I do have to move any significant distance, I use public transport.  I do enjoy taking the occasional pilgrimage, when the opportunity arises, but either use public transport or ride with friends.  I have not been in an airplane in four years (thanks be to God).  I do, on occasion, take continuing education courses.  My current rental situation is very favorable.  The landlord is outstanding and lets me pay rent in cash, the dwelling itself is exquisitely maintained and the location couldn’t be better (for me).  I am within easy walking distance of daily Tridentine Mass, and I am also within easy walking distance of a Ukrainian Greek Catholic Parish – so I even have a back-up Divine Liturgy on Sundays in case anything happens to the Latin Mass.  I have been in this “parking spot down by the river” for 20 months now after a forced emergency move in the fall of ARSH 2016, and I hope I can stay here indefinitely. So that’s a little summary of my day-to-day situation.

How I Tithe

I have also been asked about how I tithe.  I mostly tithe “in kind” and directly to priests, namely by hospitality (picking up the bill for a meal – I get a steady stream of visitors), and to a lesser extent these days by physical labor.  My church-cleaning skills are well-known in certain circles, and I wield a mean steam iron.  I only give cash tithes directly to good and holy priests with the explicit promise that the money will go for THEIR expenses, and not one cent will go to the chancery or bishop’s conference.  I will not subsidize the human trafficking schemes, sodomite abuse cover-up payments and settlements, NewWorldOrder FrancisChurch agenda or Antichurch activities that pretty much every bishop is up to his eyebrows in.  NO WAY.

Snail Mail Donations

Yes, my mailbox in Centennial, CO is secure and checked regularly.  Check, money order and small cash donations can be received there.

Cattle Marketing DVD

Yes, I still have copies of my Cornerstone Cattle Marketing Level 1 DVD set available for sale.  For ordering instructions, email me with “Cattle Marketing DVD” in the subject header, and I will send the ordering instructions back.

So, from now on, when you see the Stale Big Mac thumbnail which will be a hotlink to my ContinueToGive Donation page, you will know what it is.

My undying thanks to one and all for your years of readership and listenership, and for your generosity.  After the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart, should I live to see it, I will write a book and tell you all of the amazing stories which current circumstances prevent me from sharing.  In the mean time, please accept my deepest, sincerest thanks for essentially subsidizing my existence, and making the “involuntary early retirement phase” of my life as shockingly wonderful and unpredictable as it has been, and continues to be.

Be assured of my prayers, and I shall continue to endeavor to provide at least “Stale Big Mac” utility and value.

P.S.  SuperNerd’s PayPal page for SuperNerd Media is HERE.  Thanks again for all of your prayers for SuperNerd, SuperMommy and Tiny Princess!

Finally, a concluding quote from St. Basil:

“Does not the gratitude of the dog put to shame any man who is ungrateful to his benefactors?”

Barnhardt Podcast #053: No Dogters Go To Heaven

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss the natural state of man which is to be fruitful and multiply, so much so that modern dual-income, no-child couples instinctively realize there’s a hole in their life and turn to furry quadrupeds as an ersatz replacement (even going as far as introducing their canine as “their dogter”). Related to this “four legs are better than two” insanity is a diminishing of the dignity of human life, which only accelerates the momentum behind the contraceptive mentality and exacerbates the problems of abortion, infanticide, murder, and euthanasia.

We’re ALL Being Watched – Bergoglio, Soros, Palo Alto, the NHS and… a Girls Gymnastics Coach

Surveillance is a big topic these days as it has come out into the open that all email, social media and smartphones are actively tracking and listening to everything and everyone.  But that isn’t what this piece is about.  This piece is about the age-old phenomenon of how Diabolical Narcissists operate, and specifically how they attain their strongest dose of narcissistic satisfaction, and how our society – ALL of us together, have been turned into a massive, constant source of narcissistic satisfaction to the DN monsters that move among us, and rule over us.

The example I’m going to use is a bit surprising, and one might think a bit far afield, but something I learned well in my days as a Cattle Marketing teacher (which was in turn taught to me by my teacher – an Old Timer, now deceased) was that often the best way to introduce and teach a concept was by using an example totally outside of the paradigm – in my case, the cattle business.  I would introduce the mathematical concept in terms of merchandising not cattle, but electronics.  All the cattlemen present would easily understand the mathematical paradigm precisely because they were not struggling with trying to make it conform to their prejudices, biases and exceptionally bad habits in the cattle business.  Once they understood the simple math presented to them in an outside context, they could then apply it to the Cattle business with much, much greater facility. This pedagogical method was one of the most brilliant things taught to me by the Old Timer that taught me the cattle business, and I have used it consistently ever since.  For those of you who have been to one of my Cattle Marketing schools, or have the DVD, can you imagine trying to start the Cattle Square and Valuation Tables WITHOUT first having done the VCR module?  It would be 100 times more difficult.

Anyway, I came across an example of a Diabolical Narcissist psychopath that ticks every box, and really demonstrates how DN psychopaths get their greatest rush and satisfaction NOT in the actual moment of inflicting abuse or committing crime.  No – the REAL rush for these monsters is the aftermath, specifically in watching their victims LET THEM GET AWAY WITH IT, and oftentimes the victims even defend, protect, and even REWARD their DN abusers.  We will go through the micro example of Michigan-based girls gymnastics coach John Geddert, and then see how this dynamic maps onto so many macro systems today.

Some of you might have heard of the sexual abuse scandal in the world of American women’s gymnastics (girls, really – so-called “women’s gymnastics” is a children’s sport) surrounding a doctor named Larry Nassar.  Nassar was based out of a gym in Michigan owned by John Geddert.  This gym was very successful, and has produced world champion female gymnasts.  John Geddert was tapped to be the team coach for the U.S. olympic women’s gymnastics team in 2012.  Geddert was a very powerful and influential player in the U.S. gymnastics scene, and got his “friend” (remember, DNs are not actually capable of genuine friendship, which requires the capacity to love – DNs are, by definition, self-purged of love) Larry Nassar installed as the official doctor for USA Gymnastics, giving Nassar pretty much unlimited, unfettered access to the entire USA women’s gymnastics squad.  Nassar, also being a DN psychopath like his buddy John Geddert, descended into sexual perversion, and would use his access to young girls, almost all pre-pubescent, to digitally rape them, both vaginally and anally, during “treatments”.  In at least one case, Nassar, so emboldened and seeking the next-level high, did this to a girl while the girl’s mother was sitting in the exam room with her daughter.  But Nassar isn’t the example we will focus on – John Geddert is.

As we discuss in the Diabolical Narcissism video, DNs tend to be not only of above-average intelligence, but are often very high-functioning, charming, and successful in their fields.  Such is the case with John Geddert.  He did produce extremely good gymnasts, and ran a very successful gym.  He was charming, and parents admired and trusted him, so much so that parents were happy to essentially turn their children’s childhoods over to Geddert, sacrificing all normal childhood activities and pursuits, and oftentimes requiring homeschooling simply in order to accommodate the eight hour per day training regime.  Oh, and did I mention that the parents had to pay the gym THOUSANDS of dollars per month, generally in a direct deposit setup, many of them going into debt to do so? Not to mention all travel costs and equipment costs.

A very well-documented full expose piece on Geddert can be read HERE.  It reads as a near-perfect case-study of Diabolical Narcissism.  The first thing that stands out is the verbal abuse.  Screaming, yelling, brute intimidation, extreme profanity, threats, degradation.  Geddert’s excuse for this, on the very few instances he was ever challenged was CLASSIC DN: you made me do it, and it’s for your own good.  Several of Geddert’s gymnasts attempted suicide.  One girl, after intentionally overdosing on Valium and trying to explain to the hospital staff that she attempted suicide due to Geddert’s abuse, was told by Nassar that SHE needed to apologize to GEDDERT in order to be able to RETURN to Geddert’s gym – which she, with her parent’s approval and encouragement, did.  I am hard-pressed to think of a greater rush for a DN psychopath: driving an adolescent girl to attempt suicide, and after she tells her parents why she did it, the parents not only allow her to return to the man that caused it, but actively encourage the girl to APOLOGIZE TO HIM.

For the most severe DN psychopaths, driving people to suicide or attempted suicide is a major fantasy.  In the piece linked above, Geddert is reported to have regularly told young girls to “kill themselves” when they didn’t perform up to snuff in practice.  One girl, after rightly balking at performing a skill that she didn’t think she was able to do was called “a disrespectful bitch” by Geddert, and told to climb the rope to the rafter, and then jump off and kill herself.  But remember, Geddert claimed that this was “for her own good” and that she “made him do it.”  Oh, and did I mention?  This girl was TEN YEARS OLD at the time. Ten.

Some girls took Geddert’s suggestions about self-murder seriously. To control someone so much that the person will  forfeit their own life is a massive rush of Diabolical Satisfaction.  If we consider the mindset of actual demons, suicide is the ultimate victory.  Not only is the person lost to hell, but their final act is the ultimate betrayal of God – throwing God’s greatest gift, life, back in God’s face.  But what is perhaps an even greater rush is having the DN’s victim come crawling back and APOLOGIZING to the DN.  What power! And in the case of Geddert, it wasn’t just the children – it was, even more potently, the children’s parents that would come crawling back, begging for “forgiveness”, eager to continue to give thousands of dollars per month to Geddert.  In the case of the ten year old girl above, the mother EYEWITNESSED Geddert’s behavior.  When Geddert told the girl to kill herself, she ran towards her mother, telling her what Geddert had said – with Geddert following right behind her, still raging at her.  Again, Geddert did this RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE MOTHER.  And the monthly direct deposits into Geddert’s account kept coming, and the parents continued to bring their daughter to Geddert every day for six more years.  When she was 16, she contracted mononucleosis, and while missing months of school, the girl was not permitted to miss ONE gymnastics practice.  Geddert physically assaulted the girl during this time, and then, upon the girl winning a competition, but not by A SUFFICIENTLY HIGH ENOUGH MARGIN OF VICTORY, Geddert unleashed a tirade on the floor of the gymnastics meet, in full view of all there present that was so severe that the judges gave him a “red flag” conduct warning.

Another girl, after attempting to tumble on a broken leg for fear of Geddert, and stumbling, was told by Geddert to “pack up your shit and get out of my gym.”  Geddert then followed the girl into the locker room, bellowing and raging all the way, and screamed in her face that she was a “spoiled f***ing brat”.  Remember, all this was done in full view of the entire gym.  And according to Geddert, the gymnasts “made him do it”, and it was always “for their own good”.

THIS is the ultimate rush to the DN.  And it provides a long-lasting, slow-burning “high” that is actually more desirable to the DN than the quick fix of the in-the-moment rush.  Think about it – is it really any big “accomplishment” for a grown man to physically bully and abuse a bunch of little girls?  No.  Although we can see why DNs so often choose children as their victims – simply because children are easy targets.  What IS a big deal, and a much more “valuable” target, is when the other adults, mothers, and especially the FATHERS of those little girls not only LET the DN abuse their children in front of them, but then grovel, apologize and ACH deposit thousands of dollars into the DN’s bank account after the fact, when the DN is called out – in this case by the attempted suicide of the child.

The modern pejorative term “cuck” inevitably springs to mind, which actually comes from a very real word, “cuckold”, which is a man who permits other men to have sex with his wife.  A man – a FATHER – who permits another man to abuse his own children – his own DAUGHTERS in front of him, it seems to me, is an even more pathetic specimen than an actual cuckold.  There is a far greater sense of total and complete capitulation and defeat in the latter, and John Geddert crushed these parents under his heel for his entire adult life.

I am so powerful, so superior, so worshipped, that I can do ANYTHING I want to these people and they will never, ever give me up. They will never walk away. Hell, they will even apologize to me for disappointing me. They will sacrifice their own children to me, thank me, and pay me for the privilege. Even the powers-that-be won’t touch me.  The rules do not apply to me.  The laws do not apply to me.  I am untouchable. I am other. I am above everyone and everything. These people are lower than insects, contemptible and deserving of only my disdain, and I am a god. That I tolerate them at all is an act of extreme generosity and condescension on my part.

I’d encourage you to read the whole piece on Geddert, and see if you can identify all of the Diabolical Narcissism dynamics, including the Alpha-Beta dynamics swirling around between Geddert (pure Alpha), Nassar (Beta to Geddert’s Alpha), Geddert’s wife (Beta herself, of just an effeminate enabler/victim? – not enough info to say), and the parents and other coaches in Geddert’s gym (Betas or merely effeminate hangers-on?).  Look at what the parents’ motivations were – association with an “elite” gym and coach, the promise of college scholarships (and the threat of losing said scholarships due to Geddert’s mafia-like influence in the NCAA), and perhaps most importantly, fear of blackballing, retaliation or ruination by the DN psychopath.

THEY WANT TO BE SEEN.

Now, let’s apply what we have learned to the more mainstream, macro-level examples of Diabolical Narcissist Pychopathy.  It is tempting to look at the bad behavior of DN psychopaths and jump to the conclusion that they are lacking self-awareness, are functionally “dumb”, and don’t know how to properly “manage their image”, to put it in purely pragmatic terms.  This assumption is incorrect.  The vast majority of the time, the open “bad behavior” is 100% calculated, and totally self-aware.  Bad behavior in public is an ESSENTIAL PART of the DN paradigm.  In terms of the preternatural, that is, actual demons, the word used is “manifestation”.  This is EXACTLY the same term we should use for the open bad behavior of Diabolical Narcissists.  DNs MANIFEST, and derive their most intense satisfaction from the toleration, acceptance, defense and even enabling and cooperation of those who witness their MANIFESTATIONS.

EXAMPLE NUMBER 1: ANTIPOPE BERGOGLIO

Those of us tapped into the info stream coming out of Rome began hearing of Antipope Bergoglio’s MANIFESTATIONS very early on in the antipapacy.  And I’m not talking yet about the public statements of heresy.  I’m initially talking about Jorge Bergoglio’s day-to-day behavior inside the Vatican.  What was reported immediately by people who knew him in Argentina, and carried over into his usurpation in Rome, as confirmed in Henry Sire’s book, “The Dictator Pope”, is Bergoglio’s incredibly, stunningly foul mouth.  We aren’t talking about a man merely using cuss words – even the worst, like the “f” word.  No, we are talking about BLASPHEMOUS curses, often involving sexual perversion mixed with the sacred, that took even the godless degenerates in the Vatican Bathhouse Complex aback.  Remember the instances when Antipope Bergoglio dropped the words “corporophagia” and “corporphilia”?  The concept of “shit-eating” is a daily-driver in Antipope Bergoglio’s lexicon of blasphemy.  The screaming, raging fits, the most famous being the episode in ARSH 2014 when a group of Cardinals sent a letter the Antipope Bergoglio protesting the completely tyrannical procedure in the Synod Against the Family, whereupon Antipope Bergoglio, during the lunch hour, threw a screaming, bellowing, raging fit of such severity in the Casa Santa Marta dining hall, that the Swiss Guards  CLEARED THE BUILDING.  Bergoglio was bellowing, “I’m in charge here! I’ll have their hats!”  This wasn’t Bergoglio being “dumb” or lacking self-awareness.  This was Bergoglio MANIFESTING, and then watching as NOT ONE of the many dozens of people who witnessed the manifestation would dare speak publicly about it.

Arguably, however, the greatest rush Antipope Bergoglio gets as he manifests, is his near-daily public utterance of heresy, and his open pogrom (yes, p-o-g-r-o-m: a massacre, an attempted extermination) against Jesus Christ and His Holy Church.  Frank Walker over at Canon212 keeps a daily tally of how many days it has been since the Four Cardinals presented Antipope Bergoglio with the Dubia – which has gone unanswered, but even more importantly, without any follow-up correction.  It is precisely the SILENCE, and even the words of groveling deference, and “assurances of loyalty” by men like Cardinal Burke that provides the greatest rush to the DN Psychopath Bergoglio.  It isn’t just the “doing it”, it is the GETTING AWAY WITH IT.

What one realizes is that usurping the Papacy, as Antipope Bergoglio has done, is, far and away, the single most potent vector for this paradigm of Diabolical Narcissist Psychopath MANIFESTATION and SURVEILLANCE.

-We aren’t simply talking about some thug who owns a gymnastics studio, watching parents allow him to openly abuse their children.
-We aren’t simply talking about a cadre of bureaucrats and judges in the NHS, watching a nation as they openly imprison and execute a little boy.
-We aren’t simply talking about some CEO of a brokerage firm or bank, watching an entire industry and government as he openly steals billions.
-We aren’t talking about a Palo Alto oligarch, watching the world as he openly makes billions off of clandestinely surveilling every man, woman and child, and then openly lies about it.
-We aren’t talking about a Hollywood producer, watching the entire movie industry as he openly assaults and rapes casting-couch starlets.
-We aren’t talking about a powerful TV news anchor, watching the entire media juggernaut as he openly harasses and fornicates in the workplace.
-We aren’t talking about a presidential candidate, watching the world as she openly lies, rages at subordinates, engages in racketeering, treason, and murder.
-We aren’t talking about the President of the United States, openly lying and openly carrying on affairs in the White House (take your pick here – it applies to most of them).

What we are talking about is the most severe case of this possible on earth.  We are talking about a man who has usurped the one and only office in the entire world that has literal, supernatural protection and authority. Stop and think about that.  We are talking about a man who is demanding that people commit spiritual suicide and cooperate with full assent and perfect docility to his pogrom of destruction of The Church, lyingly leveraging the authority of Jesus Christ Himself.  We are talking about a man who all day, every day, wallows and luxuriates in the sight of an entire planet WATCHING HIM as he openly calls good evil, and evil good, and openly spews satanic heresy after satanic heresy, and grovel before him, calling him “Holy Father”, while the actual Holy Father – Pope Benedict XVI – remains very much alive, and very much in plain sight.

You better believe that Antipope Bergoglio is WATCHING US, SURVEILLING US every time a believing Catholic contorts themselves into a perverse pretzel declaring Antipope Bergoglio’s open crimes against God, His Church and every human being by extension, to be “not so bad”, “a misunderstanding”, “a mistranslation”, “above my paygrade”, “none of my concern”, or any other of the myriad excuses that people make for him – as proof of their piety, no less.

You better believe that Antipope Bergoglio is watching us, surveilling us, as he insults us and abuses us, and we continue to tolerate and grovel – just like the parents of the little girls in John Geddert’s gym.  “We can’t say anything!  He’s too powerful!  If we cross him, he will blackball us! He is so popular, everyone will hate us if we say anything against him!”

This Bergoglian Antipapacy is, quite possibly, the single greatest Diabolical Narcissist Psychopath power play ever executed to date by a human being.  1.2 billion Catholics bowing and scraping before him as he openly tries to completely destroy The Church Militant, while simultaneously erecting the satanic Antichurch; the rest of the planet cheering him as he ratifies all sin, including sodomy, declares hell non-existent, and deifies man by declaring the individual conscience the arbiter of truth and morality and the adjudicator of guilt, and thus denying the salvific work of Christ.

Make no mistake, our silence is their most potent drug.  Our supine, effeminate enabling is the steady dose of “DN methamphetamine”, mainlined directly into their jugular. We are both the drug, and the delivery mechanism.

You better believe you’re being watched.

(Remember, neither Bergoglio’s Diabolical Narcissistic Psychopathy nor heresy is what makes him an Antipope.  It was Pope Benedict XVI’s invalid attempt at “partially resigning” that enabled Bergoglio’s usurpation. ANYONE “elected” in the faux-conclave of ARSH 2013 would have been an Antipope.)

I am so powerful, so superior, so worshipped, that I can do ANYTHING I want to these people and they will never, ever give me up. Hell, they will even apologize to me for disappointing me. They will sacrifice their own children to me, thank me, and pay me for the privilege. Even the powers-that-be won’t touch me.  The rules do not apply to me.  The laws do not apply to me.  I am untouchable. I am other. I am above everyone and everything – including God. These people are lower than insects, contemptible and deserving of only my disdain, and I am a god. That I tolerate them at all is an act of extreme generosity and condescension on my part.
