Another Letter from an Abandoned Spouse

Another moving note from a male reader abandoned by his wife:

Dear Ann,

I enjoyed reading the email from the gentleman who spoke so well about the indissolubility of marriage, as did you. I also am the victim of an “unwanted and unnecessary divorce.” Despite having four children and a 28 year marriage, my wife abandoned it all with the approval and assistance of her parish priest and other parishioners. Her reason: She was never really in love and needed to find her personal fulfillment. That such an egoistic philosophy should be supported by any priest is jaw-dropping. I am now in the middle of a financially crippling and litigious court battle that has left my children utterly disillusioned with the validity of the Church. Despite a pleading letter to the Arch Bishop of Baltimore, I received no advocacy. We have fallen so far.

 By drawing an analogy between human marriage and that great act of spousal love displayed by the selfless act of Christ on the cross, you made evident the true archetype of Christian marriage. I, like your reader, have chosen to continue in my vows, knowing that they may never again be reciprocated. Christ’s marriage vow to us that “He will never leave us or forsake us” remains the only true lifeline. That these words were spoken to souls in human flesh, who fall daily, perhaps even by the minute, makes it all the more precious.

 In Christ,


I post this because I want the B’s of the world to know that they are not alone, and to remind the general populace that men are, in my opinion, the greater victims of the post-Christian no-fault divorce culture.  Believe me, the story Bill tells is positively endemic in the Baby Boomer generation.  We all know middle and upper-middle class women who have callously abandoned their marriage solely because they wanted to be “free” and “recapture the youth that was stolen from them”.  Many of these women are encouraged to do this by so-called “therapists”, of whom my contempt knows no bounds.  Also, these women time their divorces so that they strike while their husband is in the peak of his earning years – usually the late 40s or early 50s, thus callously scheming to maximize their alimony and property packages.  In today’s feminized, devirilized culture, men are always painted as the wrong-doers, and women are the universal victims.  This is so wrong.  There are countless men who have been and will be utterly blindsided by their larcenous wives in this way, and are helpless to stop it, both in the civil courts, and most sickeningly, also in the rotting-on-the-vine Novus Ordo wing of the Church.

The only thing I can say to these men (and also women to whom this happens) is to unite your marital sufferings to Our Lord and Divine Spouse, abandoned, denied and persecuted in His Sorrowful Passion.  God Almighty has been through exactly the same thing that you are going through, only worse, and on a far bigger scale.  There is nothing that could ever be of greater consolation than that truth, which is all a derivative function of the Incarnation, which we continue to celebrate in these 40 days of Christmas.

Starting Friday Off Right

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  Amen.

PATER NOSTER, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Here is a unique Kyrie that I have been listening to of late.  You Tridentine Mass-goers will recognize the melody.  This Kyrie however, is troped, which means there are text insertions between the Kyries.  We are highly, highly in favor of troped Kyries.  This one goes on for almost six minutes.  In my opinion, the Kyrie simply cannot go on long enough.  And you will also notice that this is stylistically … different.  The most notable features are the drone (I like droning – it sounds very Eastern) and the melodic flourishes.  Again, it has an almost Byzantine flavor that I find intriguing.  Sadly there is no way to know if this is really what chant sounded like over a thousand years ago, because there was no notation at that time.  Ah well.  It is a fun listen, inasmuch as begging Almighty God to have mercy on us can be “fun”.  You know what I mean.

Kyrie eleison.  (Lord have mercy)
Christe eleison.  (Christ have mercy)
Kyrie eleison.  (Lord have mercy)

Meat and Cheese Platter

1.  Many, many thanks to all of you who have mirrored and uploaded my Islamic Sexuality and other videos to YouTube.  It has been wonderful to see all of those copies populating on YouTube over the last several days.  We definitely made lemonade out of lemons in the battlespace!  I don’t care how many views I get on my own channel.  All I care about is getting this information out and in front of as many people as possible so that the whole “islam is a religion” lie can be killed within this generation.  But I have to admit, it is pretty cool to (help) lead that charge.  And let it be a lesson to one and all:  yes, one person CAN make a difference.  One person CAN initiate and lead a successful campaign against a 1400 year old satanic, perverted, militaristic political system.  And all it took was a video camera and a little courage.  Now, imagine what an entire civilization could achieve if it just stopped being afraid, trusted in God, and stood manfully against evil.  Sigh.


2.  On to the death threat from the stupid musloid kids in Fairfax, Virginia.  Some would say, “Oh Ann, as a Christian you have to forgive the kids and take their info down.”  Stop.  You are conflating the concepts of forgiveness and permissiveness.  Perhaps better stated, you are conflating MERCY with permissiveness.  I can forgive the stupid kids, and in fact, have.  BUT, it is precisely because I am NOT INDIFFERENT to them and their eternal fates that they MUST feel the consequences of their actions.  I actually spoke to the boy the day after the incident and he was fake-crying and “swearing on Jesus” that he would never do it again.  Damn right, you won’t.  Why? Because he was made to know the consequences of his evil, stupid, satanic actions.  IF however, I had called off the dogs, what would he have learned?  That he can “get away with it”, that all he need do is fake-cry and invoke the name of Our Lord and all Christians will instantly roll over.  In this case, these kids need desperately to learn about justice, and the most merciful thing I can do is help teach them that lesson.  I am reminded of Dr. John Senior’s quote on justice now:

Justice is simply the social good, and it must therefore be done. It is defined as “giving each his due” – cuique sum, “to each his own.” A man is due his life because he is a living thing; it is his nature to have life; and, since it is also his nature to be moral, if a man commits a crime, he must be punished because punishment is retributive – punishment is the penalty due the criminal in justice to him. Proportioned punishment is due him, too, and you cannot deny him that right without yourself committing an injustice against him deserving punishment in turn. The judge who fails the criminal in punishment himself incurs a greater guilt.


3.  This email just in from a male reader on the topic of the indissolubility of marriage:

I also agree with #3 of your post concerning marriage. As the victim of an unwanted and unnecessary divorce and annulment, I can attest to the pictorial description of what marriage is all about. Bishop Sheen had it pegged rightly when he said marriage is about Agape Love – Sacrificial Love – and not the Eros or Filia Love. One never knows the depth of the Love one has for their spouse until called upon to make the choice…to cross the line drawn in the sand by Our Lord when faced with the ultimate test of the Agape Love required. We can then give to our spouses and marriages the gift of self by continuing to honor our vows and spouse after divorce/annulment, unrequited though that gift may be, or, we can choose the easy road and seek our own personal fulfillment a second, third or fourth time, thereby denying our abandoning spouse our sacrificial Love and the privilege of continuing to sanctify their Soul through the patient acceptance of the Marital Cross.
Thank You, Ann, for your post. It certainly throws off the veneer of that part of marriage we all know is there, but choose not to acknowledge until we are forced to do so. And all we can do then is to pray for the Grace we need to make the right choice when the Cross is placed before us by the Loving Hands of Our Lord.
On a related note, I would say that the true agenda of a person who seeks a separation from their spouse can be easily discerned IF said person takes up with another.  Look people, bottom line, none of us are entitled to spousal intimacy.  None of us have a “right” to sex.  This point, I think, is one of the most powerful manifestations of the utterly disordered contemporary notion of what a “right” is.  In fact, it is worthy of its own essay.  I shall add it to my list.  But Fear of the Lord has to come first.
4.  Speaking of essay topics, I FINALLY received an email with a solid explanation of usury and interest, and suffice it to say that I am extremely excited.  I will need to be extra-diligent in its composition, because I hope that it can influence the entire discussion and perhaps influence the economic and financial rebuilding process after the upcoming and inevitable Counter-Revolutionary World War.

Starting Thursday Off Right

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  Amen.

(I have received emails complaining about the trespasses-debts wording.  Solution?  I’ll post the Latin, y’all can learn the Latin, and then we can all just say it in Latin together.  One Church.  One language.  It is SO much easier, sensible and unifying that way.  God is good and merciful in His desire for a liturgical language that transcends all of the myriad local languages, thus unwinding the unfortunate events around the unfortunate Tower of Babel incident.)

PATER NOSTER, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

It is probably a bit easier to learn it in the context of chant.  There’s something about the presence of a melody that facilitates learning and memorization.  The only quibble I have with this video is the translator uses “your’ instead of “thy”.  As we have previously discussed, in English, “you” is actually the FORMAL second person pronoun, where as “thou”, “thee”, “thy” and “thine” are the INTIMATE, or INFORMAL second-person pronouns.  Our Lord spoke and the scriptures reflect that the second person intimate pronouns are correct.  Our Lord speaks to us in the familiar, and more remarkably, but in complete keeping with His words to us in John 15:15 and in the Lord’s Prayer itself, beginning with the words “our FATHER”, that we are on intimate terms in BOTH directions.  To translate scripture into english WITHOUT the “archaic” thee-thy-thou pronouns is to destroy a massive theological point and stunning reality.  God is indeed OUR FATHER, and our Brother, and our Divine Spouse.

Just Got a Death Threat from the D.C. Area! UPDATE: AZHAR RAFAT of Fairfax, VA.

If anyone wants to follow up on this, (703) 622-0373 just called my phone number listed on the Contact page and told me they were going to “come and kill me”.  Well, good luck with that, kids.  It was one male and one female, young adults.  I’m just tickled that it was in the D.C./Arlington area!  Woot!  Movin’ on up, yo!

UPDATE:  What excellent readers!  Caller I.D.’d as AZHAR RAFAT of Fairfax, VA.  I told you they were all riding an I.Q. bellcurve shifted two standard deviations to the left.  This is what happens when your dad is also your uncle for thirty generations: you can’t understand the subtle nuances of CALLER I.D.

AND this, which I don’t understand because I disable all comments on my videos and always have:

Regarding your account: AnnBarnhardt

Text comments you posted to YouTube have been identified as containing hate speech, and have been deleted from the site. We encourage free speech and defend everyone’s right to express their points of view even if unpopular. But YouTube does not permit hate speech. “Hate speech” means content that promotes hatred or violence against members of a protected group (race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity). Sometimes there is a fine line between what is and what is not considered hate speech. If you’re not sure whether or not your content crosses the line, don’t post it.

Your account has received one Community Guidelines warning strike, which will expire in six months. Additional violations may result in the temporary disabling of your ability to post content to YouTube and/or the permanent termination of your account.

So, what I need is for you guys to either mirror other mirrored versions of my Islamic Sexuality videos that are already on YouTube and repost them to YouTube, LiveLeak and whatever other online video servers there are, AND/OR buy the DVD version from NewPixel Productions and then upload that content.  The more this is done the better.  I would also recommend naming the files including my name and the words “Islamic Sexuality”.  The entire original filename was “Ann Barnhardt: Islamic Sexuality; A Survey Of Evil”.

You have to start thinking tactically, and especially learn how to turn the adversary’s minor moves into huge victories.  When something “bad” happens, the first thing you should think is NOT, “Oh, this is terrible!”  Look, the enemy is going to do what the enemy is going to do.  The first thought you should have is, “Okay, how do I turn this development in the battlespace into a huge win for me?”

Bottom line, what I have just described is a masculine, aggressive, proactive, offensive posture. Lean forward.  Step INTO your punch.  Always advance.  “Prevent defense” is WORSE than surrender.  If the forces of evil to advance against you, hoist the Banner of Christ, charge into his ranks at full speed and make him regret the day of his own birth.

Take your balls out of the pickle jar on top of your teevee and execute like a baws.

And since I am not actually anyone’s CO, I will offer my sincere thanks for your help in advance and not wait for the surrender ceremony when our victory has been secured.  🙂

That is all.

On Christie: Proving the Barnhardt Axiom

Secondary subtitle for this post?  “What in the almighty @#$%^&*! is wrong with you people??

First, let’s review the Barnhardt Axiom:

The fact that a given person is holding or even seeking high-level public office is, in and of itself, proof that said person is morally and/or psychologically UNFIT to hold public office.

Thank you Chris Christie for ONCE AGAIN proving the point.

I am DESPONDENT at the endless line of people engaging in massive moral relativism, trying to argue that Chris Christie maliciously causing traffic jams in order to punish his political enemies is somehow okay because he isn’t Obama or Mao Tse Tung or satan.  So, you know, by comparison, causing massive traffic delays is totally small ball, so whatevs.

Will you people just stop for two seconds and THINK about what you’re saying?  This man freely chose to maliciously disrupt the lives of hundreds of thousands of people – people  whom he is charged with serving, in order to win some urinating contest with another politician.  Chris Christie, just like all politicians today (see the Barnhardt Axiom), views other human beings as objects that exist only to serve him.  Chris Christie doesn’t give a flying flip about his constituents.  They are a mildly annoying teeming mass of vermin who can be used and abused in order to consolidate, increase and entrench his own personal power and wealth.  He doesn’t care about the man who was trying to get home to his sick wife.  He doesn’t care about the woman trying to get home so she can make it to her kids’ school program.  He doesn’t care about the guy who just worked a 14 hour shift, is totally exhausted, and just wants to go home and go to bed, because he has to wake up tomorrow morning and do it all over again.  Chris Christie doesn’t care about wasting other people’s time.  He doesn’t worry about how his maliciously engineered traffic jam COULD make the two-minute difference between a heart attack victim or head injury victim surviving or dying.

Look, I’ll be the first to admit that I really don’t LIKE very many people.  And you know, we are not required to personally LIKE others.  But we are required to feel some level of empathy and consideration towards other people, and, you know, um, treat them the way we would like to be treated ourselves.  This is what “love of neighbor” is at its most primordial and universal level.  For the eighty-seven billionth time here, caritas, or CHARITY, is to NOT be indifferent towards others, because INDIFFERENCE is the opposite of charity, or love.  Chris Christie has proven that he is completely and totally INDIFFERENT to the very people he has been given authority to govern.  He doesn’t have to personally like everyone, but he is morally required as a human being, and especially as a leader, to not be utterly indifferent to other people, and thus not treat them like objects and pawns in his sick, larcenous quest for power and wealth.

Oh, but it’s okay as long as his indifference manifests itself (for now) in ways less severe than Obama or Stalin or Mao.

So as long as a person hoists a certain flag and declares himself a member of a certain mafia or gang, then you all will breathlessly defend behavior that is not only indefensible, but is a massive, massive red flag warning that said person is a sociopath at best or a psychopath at worst.

THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is why I despair and hold out NO HOPE for any sort of internal self-correction or resuscitation of the now-dead United States.  I truly believe that the Marxist infiltrators of the media and entertainment industry intentionally fomented the worship of sports teams in order to engender and normalize exactly what we are seeing here.  If Jock X plays for the Yankees, then he is a bum.  But if he becomes a free agent and goes to the Red Sox, then he can rape girls, deal drugs and torture animals and THAT’S FINE.  Just as long as he is wearing the correct BLOUSE.

Do you not see that “politics” is now the same?  Chris Christie can kiss Obama’s rump, sell out to sodomites, and now prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that he is malignantly indifferent to the lives of the very people he is supposed to serve and advocate for in the public realm, and you all will rush to defend him with the objective evil of MORAL RELATIVISM simply because he allegedly affiliates himself with the mafia organization called the “Republican Party”, as opposed to the other mafia called the “Democrat Party”, which are actually two explicitly allied “Families” that are just putting on a facade of “competition” because the faux-competition is itself the means by which both families loot trillions of dollars from YOU.  And you not only let them do it, you enjoy it as an entertaining diversion in exactly the same milieu as sports.

How can you possibly continue to fall for this?  How can you possibly think to yourself that these people care about you in any way, and that they are somehow defensible so long as they wave a specific flag AND there is some other psychopath out there who was or is worse, thus making them “okay by comparison”?

“Chris Christie for Office!
He’s a psychopath… but he’s OUR psychopath!”


Peanut Butter on a Green Apple

1.  My mixed drink repertoire is not exactly huge, so I think I have run out of titles for miscellaneous posts based upon alcoholic beverages.  So, let’s move on to snacks.  I have been eating peanut butter on green apple slices, and my, what an excellent little meal substitution.   It is incredibly filling.  Hey – that’s the fat in the peanut butter.  Fat is filling.  When you eat it, your appetite is satisfied.  Not so with carbs.  Popping carbs just makes you hungrier.  If you want to have a snack, you are far better off going for a small serving of something fatty and satisfying.  Save the carbs, in moderation, for actual mealtime.

2.  My 2.5 hour YouTube economics presentation has been syndicated online and folks are asking if and where they can buy it on DVD.  Well, the good folks who recorded it (free of charge – they did it purely out of charity) are indeed selling DVD versions of all of the videos they did for me with my hearty endorsement and seal of approval.  You can buy my big economics presentation, my presentation of the Vendee Genocide during the French Revolution and the similarities to the overthrow of the United States, and my presentation on islamic sexuality from them at the following website:

You can now enjoy in the comfort of your own home hours and hours of the snarling crazy-eyed jeremiad and rhetorical funeral dirge of Western Civilization.

3.  I received quite a lot of feedback regarding prayer for those we have not yet met, and was reminded that praying for one’s future spouse beginning in childhood was a widespread practice in the Church before the Marxist-sodomiticalists infiltrated and began their unrelenting campaign of destruction in the mid-1960s.  Maybe if people learned again to pray for their spouse before they met them, they would realize that their future spouse is a precious human being, and their future marriage a sacrament.  Instead, we have clergy today saying that with regards to marriage, “everyone deserves a second chance”.  Thankfully Our Blessed Lord does not agree.

Our Lord entered into a covenant marriage.
The relationship … went south through no fault of His.

This is what a Covenant Marriage in which one spouse turns out to be less-than-perfect looks like.  Oddly, no annulment has ever been sought.

This is what a Covenant Marriage in which one spouse turns out to be less-than-perfect looks like. Oddly, no annulment has ever been sought in this case.

Instead of annulling the covenant, seeking a divorce, abandoning the relationship, or killing the spouse (which was and is His right as the Divine Judge – just ask Noah), He instead persevered unto torture and death at the hands of His beloved spouse, and then doubled-down on the marriage, instituting the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the Eucharist so that He could renew the Marriage Sacrament and the Divine Embrace EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. FOREVER.

Just remember, if everyone deserves a “second chance” with regards to marriage, then Our Blessed Lord goes to the front of that line, the Gates of Heaven slam shut, and we all go to hell exactly as we deserve.


“Ay-ay-ay. ¿Cuánto tiempo más?”
Our thoughts exactly, Sweetie.


Starting Saturday Off Right

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  Amen.

Pope St. Hyginus.

Pope St. Hyginus.

Today is the feast of Pope St. Hyginus who was murdered by the Roman Emperor in ARSH 142.  We have no idea who he was or what he looked like, but he was and is a real dude, and he loves you, and wants you to get to heaven.  Seeing how he is looking upon the Beatific Vision right now, and is contemplating God face-to-face, it would be a fine idea to ask him to put in a good word for you and yours.  Remember, the vast, vast majority of people who have ever lived are utterly forgotten by those alive today.  Someday you too will pass out of all living memory.  Only a very few people are remembered by name long after they are dead.  But all of those people, all of those lives with all of their ups and downs, loves and losses, were and are every bit as real as you and me.  It is the antithesis of humility to think that the world began with your achieving sentience, or that it began in say, oh, I dunno, ARSH 1968 or thereabouts – just to pick a random date.  Ahem.  Cough-cough.

Pope St. Hyginus, whoever you are, please pray for us to the Lord Our God.

Bacardi and Coke

1.  And … I’m back!  My hard drive failed and it took a while to replace, but now I’m back in business, and since the machine was still under warranty, there was no charge for the repairs.  Whew!  But, replacing the hard drive meant that I was basically given back a brand new computer.  Even though I didn’t have much stuff saved on it, one forgets how time consuming it is to reinstall software and get the system settings back to where they should be.  That took forever.  The next project, which is far worse, is attacking my email inbox and getting that cleaned up.  Gulp.  I should be back to near-daily posts and will try to record a podcast on Saturday.

2.  I used to favor Captain Morgan spiced rum in my Coke, but have lately converted to classic Bacardi.  A Bacardi and Coke on ice with a lime is one of the most outstanding thirst-quenchers  and refreshers on the planet.  Not to mention a delicious treat.

3.  Thanks to one and all for inquiries as to my temperature status.  Yes, The Van is nice and toasty.  Although, I had bought an electric hot water bottle to keep the ol’ toes warm, but it burst into flames last week.  It was very exciting.  I hadn’t had that much fun since that time the raccoon got stuck in the copier.

4.  It occurred to me at Mass earlier this week that since God is in no way constrained by space or TIME, we can and should pray for people we have not yet met.  Unless you are a very elderly person, or you are very close to dying, it is almost a certainty that there are people out in the world somewhere that you will meet in the future and are going to be your friends.  Also, you may have children someday, or people you are related to will have children, who you have obviously not met yet.  Pray for them now.  God knows who they are.  One byproduct of war and dislocation is the bringing together of people and the formation of relationships.  Men who have seen combat never forget their “buddies”.  Many marriages and families have been the result of wars or diasporas.  This dynamic has already happened to me as I have met all manner of people in the Riverdweller community since I hit the road last year.  I often used to wonder about people I had yet to meet; who they were, where they were, what they were doing.  I can’t say that it explicitly occurred to me to pray for them, but I did think about them.  I wish I had explicitly prayed for them, because I could have, as God has always known exactly who they are.  So, I have now started to pray for my friends whom I have yet to meet, and recommend that you do the same.  Love transcends all dimensions, including the 4th dimension – time.

5.  There is an entire genre on YouTube of songs being played on a record turntable, and it is addictive.  This one is “I Only Have Eyes For You” by the Flamingos being played on a super high-end Bang & Olufson turntable with a killer amp and speakers.  The song is great, but the clickety-clack of the turntable is sublime.  Sigh.  Put me, now and forever, on TEAM VINYL.
