D-Day Meditation: On Bravery & Cowardice

I originally wrote and posted this on March 29, ARSH 2010. This was fully a year before I went viral for the first time after my koran burning. I had a little bit of a non-agricultural readership, but nothing like now. I began screaming and yelling about politics and broad-market economics in 2008 when I saw that the U.S. was in the process of being overthrown, and lots of ag people thought I was nuts, and I doubtless turned a bunch of people off. That’s why I was getting emails from people advising me to watch my mouth and not “get myself crossways with the Powers That Be.”

Getting crossways with The Powers That Be was the making of me. Have I mentioned lately how happy I am in the Van Down By The River? God is good.

Anyway, I remembered writing this piece on D-Day and looked it up on google and found it so I could repost it, and was shocked at how prescient it was. The line about getting legs blown off especially, given the jihad attack in Boston, gave me shivers.

Read this until you get it. Unless and until you people man up and stop cowering in fear, unless and until you fully understand that the only way you can possibly win is being willing to lose everything, up to and including your life, the outcome is utterly certain: evil will triumph. You and your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren will live and die under satanic totalitarian rule. Yes, Christ will win in the end, but as billions of human beings before you would happily remind you, Jesus returning in glory to grease all the bad guys before you die IS NOT A GIVEN.

Cowardice is a sin. Courage is a virtue. Man up and take care of business. For the love of God.

“Ann,

Why do you write stuff and make videos like that? Why don’t you lay low? If this gets serious you’re going to be in big trouble. You might be in trouble already.”

Because bravery and cowardice are a zero-sum game. When a man cowers, he isn’t just merely shielding himself from danger and nothing more. What he is doing is shirking off on to some other man his share of bravery that justice demands. Because the good German people cowered and failed to stand up and stop what they clearly saw happening in the mid-to-late 1930s, their collective failure in courage cumulated and compounded. Where their failure in courage all eventually ended up was on the shoulders of these guys:

Company E, 16th Infantry, 1st Infantry Division

See how that works? Good will always prevail, but there is no limit to the amount of suffering that will be required for that victory to occur. If men stand up early on, the suffering will be minimized because it will be spread over many people. The worst that might happen is that some folks go to bed scared for a while, but widespread bravery will allow good to prevail without much suffering. If, however, there is a decided lack of courage displayed by a large group or society early on in an advance by the powers of evil, that aggregated courage requirement will be borne by a relative few at a later time. The longer this goes on, the worse it will be for the few who have to bear the weight of the cowardice of the broad society.

So, why am I so mouthy right now? Simply put, because I don’t want your son to end up laying on some city street with his legs blown off by a Marxist-Islamist-Obamaist RPG bleeding to death because he had to shoulder my personal failure in courage. Got it? That is all.

Starting Thursday Off Right (And Notation Change!)

† 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. †

There is no end to the things one learns living in a van down by the river. Today conversation turned to all of those poor, sad souls who try to force others to stop using the date notations AD (Latin for Anno Domini, meaning Year of Our Lord) and BC (Before Christ), and rather use CE (common era) and BCE (before common era).

Nope. Sorry. When God Almighty incarnates and The Word is Made Flesh, THAT, my little chickadees, is when you start counting the years. This Orwellian garbage has got to stop. Stand and fight these evil people – who, by the way, we never see prancing into Saudi Arabia demanding that the musloids stop referring to years by the date of the concoction of the fictional persona of “mohamed” by a bunch of pervy, warmongering Bedouin trash. But I digress.

So, I have decided to go super hardcore in my war against the “common era” crowd. There is actually a notation that is way old-school, that is even more in-your-face than Anno Domini. Check it:

A.R.S.H.

Anno
Reparatae
Salutis
Humanae

“In The Year Of The Reparation Of Human Salvation”

I have put the request in to the webwizard to change the date formatting at the top of each post to this format. I will also be writing ARSH on everything I date from now on, replacing my standard “AD”.

Fight the totalitarian pagan atheists. Spread the word. This is the year ARSH 2013. Write it, use it, and look forward to having people ask you what it means. It’s the New Old Evangelization, yo.

Picture caption below correction

Thankfully, the largest demographic of readers of this blog remains retired military over the age of 65, several million of which (perhaps I exaggerate a bit) pointed out to me via email so far today that the soldiers in the photo below are wearing German Wehrmacht uniforms. Thus, the POWs digging their own graves are Red Army, and the executioners are Nazis.

Thank you, gentlemen. Excellent catch.

Note on Malicious Auditing (IRS & Otherwise)

I just want to make sure that you understand the real dynamics here. I think a lot of people are looking at all of this and not getting terribly upset because they tell themselves, “I have nothing to hide. My books are pristine. The IRS (or whoever) isn’t going to find anything if they audit me.”

Yeah, I used to think that way too. Back when I was young and naive and stupid and hadn’t yet realized that the rule of law was dead, and that we were living under a totalitarian oligarchy of psychopaths.

Guys, the IRS knows that you all are square on your taxes. That isn’t the point. Heck, when they audited me for 18 months from 2011-2012, the results showed that I had OVERPAID (but sorry, the amendment window is closed – too bad for you, Ann.)

The point is putting a business owner, non-profit, or even an individual or couple through an audit in order to PUNISH THEM WITH MASSIVE ACCOUNTANT AND ATTORNEYS FEES.

When your CPAs and attorneys bill at $250 per hour per man, the IRS or some other agency or corrupt regulatory body knows that it can destroy you simply by incurring the massive expense of an audit on you.

THAT is the point of this stuff. For a small business owner who is operating on a thin margin to begin with, an audit can EASILY wipe out in excess of an entire year’s profits JUST ON THE BILLING HOURS from the CPAs and lawyers. The same goes for a start-up non-profit.

That is textbook mob-style intimidation.

In fact, I think a more apt term would be SOVIET.

My advice? If they come after you DO NOT involve your CPA or lawyers. That’s exactly what they are counting on you to do. Like all totalitarian regimes, they want you to dig your own grave before they murder you. Man up and refuse. Stand and face them.

POWs being forced by the Nazis to dig their own graves, circa 1941.

Q: What is wrong with fun music at Mass?

Question via email:

Q: I want to know little bit more about what you think is wrong with today’s Mass when it involves really fun music. You wrote, “the same goes for the neo-con Catholics, which is to say Catholics who call themselves conservative, but just LURV the superfun rockband uber-effeminate Novus Ordo Mass and culture.” If there is a problem there within the modern Mass that causes us to worship in an incorrect way, I’d like to explore it. Those rock band Masses are more popular near colleges, and I want my child to always attend the worship ceremony and the celebration of the Eucharist without ever drifting away from the practicing faith. If you can pass along an explanation of your opinion on that matter, or a reading link, I would appreciate it. Here, I always thought that merely being a practicing Catholic meant being totally orthodox and conservative enough for any Tea Partier.

A: First, the “Tea Party” has nothing to do with it.

Second, this question totally nutshells and demonstrates how much the Church has been infiltrated and pushed up against the gates of hell in the last 50 years. The fact that this good chap is even ASKING this question is proof in and of itself that something is terribly, terribly, terribly wrong.

The Mass, which we all need to start referring to properly as “The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass” in order to help us remember, is truly, literally CALVARY. God manipulates time such that the singular event of Calvary, which is now just over 1980 years ago on the linear timeline, is made to intersect and touch today at every Mass. Imagine you are holding a piece of string or a shoelace. The shoelace is TIME. Since the singular event of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Our Lord is the “center” of time, meaning that all events both before and after will be reconciled to it, let’s say that the midpoint of the shoelace is the singular event of Calvary in AD 33. Pinch your left fingers on that spot on the shoelace and hold it. Now, with your right hand, pinch the shoelace somewhere several inches to the right of Calvary. Let’s call that point today, June 3, AD 2013. If you go to Mass today, the June 3, AD 2013 point on the timeline will be looped back over the altar at the Consecration of the Host and Chalice such that the two points in time touch each other. You can do this with your shoelace. Take your right hand, still grasping the 6/3/2013 spot and make a loop back to the left. Then, pinch BOTH the Calvary spot and the 6/3/2013 point in your left hand so that they are touching each other.

Fascinating aside. Albert Einstein, whenever he would see a Catholic priest, would stop him and ask the priest questions about the Eucharist. Do you see why? Because Einstein, atheist though he was, knew that time was not linear, and had an inkling that the non-linear nature of time was somehow a dynamic in the Mass and the Eucharist.

We see biblical confirmation of this in John 12:32 :

And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all things to Myself.

And that is EXACTLY what He does. He draws all things to Himself through TIME. Every day, every action of every person is now drawn through time and reconciled to Calvary. Go back to your shoelace. Pull the right end of the lace so that the loop is smaller. That’s yesterday. Now pull the loop out so that it is bigger. That’s tomorrow. We don’t have to wait until the end of time to reconcile ourselves to Christ Crucified. In His infinite mercy, He established the Mass so that we could be physically present at Calvary at minimum once per week (per the Third Commandment) or as often as daily.

Which brings us back to the question. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is CALVARY, PHYSICALLY PRESENT. Jesus Christ hangs before us, scourged until He is essentially skinned, in shock from massive blood and fluid loss, and NAILED TO A CROSS, asphyxiating, naked, and all of this is happening in order to make it possible for YOU, PERSONALLY, to be redeemed and saved. Your Father, your Brother, your Divine Spouse, your Creator, your Savior and your Best Friend is DYING right in front of you IN YOUR STEAD because He loves you.

And you ask me why it is that maybe we shouldn’t be rocking out and having “fun” at Mass? You ask me why it is that the whole notion of superfun entertainment-driven Masses make me red-faced with contempt and disgust? It’s because HE IS RIGHT THERE DYING FOR US. Get on your knees and PRAY. BEG HIM to have mercy on you, a sinner. BEG His forgiveness for all of the sacrilege. BEG His forgiveness for all of the indifference and offenses toward Him and His Passion. BEG His forgiveness and mercy on yourself and the whole world. Tell Him “thank you”.

Tell Him you love Him.

And just answering the inevitable question in advance: the reason you have never heard this before from Fr. Marxist-Jazzhands is because Fr. Marxist-Jazzhands either knows NOTHING about the true reality of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, or if he has heard about it, doesn’t believe it. The Church has been infiltrated over the last century and the resulting rot, ladies and gentlemen, is DEEP.

Starting Monday Off Right (And Jesus with GUNS!)

† 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. †

This one is going to be hard to top. It’s just so macho. This is a video that came across my desktop of a Corpus Christi procession yesterday. Now remember, Our Lord is PHYSICALLY PRESENT in the monstrance on the float under the canopy. This is truly a royal procession, and the King is Jesus Christ, again, REALLY PHYSICALLY PRESENT. The Eucharist is NOT a symbol. It is really, truly, physically Jesus Christ, God Almighty.

Now, in the video at the 0:45 second mark you will hear a tremendous noise. Bang! Bang! Bang! That is firecrackers, which are 100% emblematic of … wait for it … you know what I’m about to say … oh, yeah. A GUN SALUTE. The only way this could be any better is if it was done 100% old school, which used to be the case, and the state provided a full military gun salute. This used to be done, ever since the advent (I would guess) of the breech loading rifle. Before that, the military salute in Corpus Christi processions was done with bayonets and/or swords.

You know, back in the good old days before the entirety of Western Civilization was reduced to a quivering, gelatinous pile of effeminate, self-loathing garbage juice. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The “Kathys” of the world and their castrated male lapdogs will be the death of us all.

Heaven forfend that we should acknowledge that Jesus Christ the King is True God and True MAN, much less relish in His Glorious Sovreignty or engage in any TRIUMPHALISM thereto.

We need gun salutes for Our Lord. Preferably with bayonets. But for now, we will be giddy with delight at the emblematic firecrackers. YAY!!!! Viva Cristo Rey!!!! Que viva!!!! BANG! BANG! BANG!

Barnhardt Estate Sale: China Dinnerware

The wonderful little estate liquidation elves in Colorado report that we are ready to list the china dinnerware.

Here’s the story on this, which I recommend for all young people out there who are setting up a home. Go on eBay and buy super-cheap antique china in used, incomplete sets. My china was actually two seperate incomplete sets that complemented each other beautifully. I got them for a song, they looked great, were used as daily drivers, and even put into the dishwasher. You can TOTALLY put china in the dishwasher – the only rule is that if there is gold or platinum decoration (mine both have gold decoration) you cannot use the heated dry setting on the dishwasher, but I NEVER used the heated dry setting anyway, so it was a non-issue. China is very strong, beautiful and practical, and used, incomplete sets (generally antique) are about the same price as new ceramic sets, and look like a million bucks.

So there’s my little home decor tip.

Many, many thanks to one and all for your continued munificence. I don’t say thank you here nearly enough, although I do pray for all buyers and benefactors specifically every day. I am very well, with dear friends, and snug as a bug in a rug.

And I still have the fire in mah belly. Grrrrr!

My eBay handle is 720ann.
