Starting Friday Off Right: Feast of St. GrumpyCat Edition

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

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

My Favorite Part of the "Debate" Was When Hillary Starting Chewing on the Turnbuckle

Presidential Debate 2016


George “The Animal” Steele as Hillary Rodham Clinton

Captain Lou Albano as Huma Abedin, Hillary’s Manager

Randy “Macho Man” Savage as Donald J. Trump

Miss Elizabeth as Melania Trump

My favorite part was at 4:23 when Hillary started chewing on the turnbuckle.

“It’s real right?  It’s totally real.  They aren’t faking that.  It’s totally real. You can’t fake that….”

Dear Ann, So Why Would A Musloid Brotherhood Operative Marry the World's Most Repulsive Jew?

While I’m in ‘Splainin’ Mode™, folks seem thrown by the whole Huma Abedin (high-level Musloid Brotherhood operative and Hillary Clinton’s long-term lesbian concubine, and soon-to-be y’all’s 21st century, post-American Edith Wilson) being fake-married to the world’s most repellant, disgusting, embodying-every-negative-stereotype-both-just-and-unjust Jew, Anthony “Carlos Danger” “T-Dog” Weiner.

Okay.  The whole Abedin-Weiner marriage was a scam from the get-go. Weiner is what is called a “beard”.  A “beard” is the fake spouse of a sex pervert (of either sex) looking to cover their sodomitical ways.  Now, what we have with Abedin and Weiner is a SECONDARY “beard” dynamic, namely the covering of Abedin’s status as a Musloid Brotherhood operative.  When Abedin went from being the concubine of not just the First Lady and “co-president” of the U.S., to being the concubine and top consigliere (think Tom Hagen, folks) of a U.S. Senator, then Secretary of State, then anointed next “president of the united states”, she needed cover, and quick.  She needed cover for her sodomitical relationship with Hillary Clinton AND cover for her Musloid Brotherhood position. Huma Abedin needed to marry a Jew. Two birds, one stone.

Enter Carlos Danger.

The Clintons and Abedin reckoned that if Abedin married the biggest negative-stereotypical Jew on the surface of the earth, and presumably bred with him (check), that if anyone dared question Abedin’s agenda vis-a-vis the islamic political system, she could point to her “husband”, Anthony Weiner, and say, “Look, I married and had a child with the single most repellant Jew on the surface of this or any other planet.  Do you really think I’m a musloid extremist?” And this would work in perpetuity, even when Abedin divorced Weiner (which was pretty much a foregone conclusion.)  Even now, even with Weiner being exposed as a super-perv, Abedin can still now and forevermore point to her fake “marriage” to Weiner to prove that she isn’t “that kind of musloid”.

Oh, and by the way, you know who “officiated” at the Abedin-Weiner wedding, don’t you?

William. Jefferson. Clinton.

Uh huh.  Are you getting it now?

I am reminded of the case of a mildly famous priest who carried on with a politically-connected female concubine and fathered a child with said woman. When it was time to baptize the child, it was decided that the best way to cover their tracks would be to have the priest-babydaddy BAPTIZE HIS OWN SON – precisely because everyone would say, “There is no possible way that these people would be so depraved, so breathtakingly manipulative, calculating and psychopathic, as to have the priest-babydaddy baptize his own child.  No one could possibly use the Sacraments of the Church to cover their sacrilegious fornication. No one could possibly be that evil. Therefore, the priest simply can’t be the father.”

And that’s EXACTLY why it was decided that priest-babydaddy should baptize his own son. Because when people descend into Diabolical Narcissistic evil, most especially sacrilegious fornication, it becomes a dead-sprint towards hell. Cross reference: Luther, Martin (heterosexual) and Montini, Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria (homosexual).

Guys, when Our Blessed Lord said, “Behold I send you as sheep in the midst of wolves. Be ye therefore wise as serpents and simple as doves,” He really, really wasn’t kidding.

Huma Abedin married Anthony Weiner precisely because it would give cover for her true agenda as a Musloid Brotherhood infiltrator/operative.

Like I've Screeched, It Is All Kabuki Theater, Racketeering, Invoicing and Cross-Invoicing

So here’s a little I TOLD YOU SO post.  Remember how I have been screeching in my nasally, twangy shrieking harpy voice for YEARS that all of these elections are 100% fake racketeering operations designed to bleed money from gullible people in the form of “political donations” (this is the small money – donations of $1000 and under), and from the so-called “donor class”, who fully understand that they are buying into a “pay-to-play” system?

Remember that?  Here.  Here’s an example.  This is from December of ARSH 2012.  The bit germane to this concept begins at the 18:58 mark, which I think I have it cued-up to:

Now this bit of reportage – albeit just a TOUCH late – on exactly what I have been talking about for years – the invoicing and cross-invoicing to enrich friends, family, and thus the “candidate” himself.  Read the whole thing HERE.

David Brock has 7 non-profits, 3 Super PACs, one 527-committee, one LLC, one joint fundraising committee, and one unregistered solicitor crammed into his office in Washington DC.

Uncovered records expose a constant flow of money between these organizations.

The Bonner Group, his professional solicitor, works off a commission. Every time money gets passed around, Bonner receives a 12.5% cut.

Nonprofits are required to disclose who they give cash grants to.

But they aren’t required to disclose who gave them cash grants.

This weak system of one way verification is being abused by Brock. He’s been cycling money between his organizations for years, and the Bonner Group’s 12.5% commission gets triggered after every pass.

Say, for example, you donate $1,062,857 to Media Matters for America. This is how David Brock would have used your charitable donation in 2014:

1.Media Matters would receive your $1,062,857 donation

•The Bonner Group would earn a $132,857 commission
•Media Matters would retain $930,000

2. Next, Media Matters would give what’s left of your entire donation, $930,000, to the Franklin Education Forum

•The Bonner Group would ‘earn’ a $116,250 commission
•The Franklin Education Forum would retain $813,750

3. The Franklin Education Forum would then forward the remaining $813,750 to The Franklin Forum

•The Bonner Group would ‘earn’ a $101,718 commission
•The Franklin Forum would retain $712,031

In the end, Brock’s solicitor would have pocketed $350,825, almost a third of your initial donation! That’s a far cry from the advertised 12.5% commission.

As bizarre as that scenario may sound, this is exactly what David Brock did in 2014.

And then, tying the concept of the abject fraud of the contemporary western political and electoral matrix to our continuing study of Diabolical Narcissism and its derivative – sexual perversion – we get this shocking – SHOCKING bit of info:

Brock’s former long-time live-in boyfriend William Grey (whom Brock has thanked in several of his books) threatened to go to the IRS with damaging information about how Brock was running his Media Matters empire. What did Brock do? He paid Grey $850,000 to keep quiet. Brock reportedly had to sell his home in Rehoboth, Delaware to come up with the money. This certainly seems to indicate that Brock was terrified about what the authorities would uncover.”

Adding to this, Fox News reported the following:

“Grey accused Brock of “financial malfeasance” and threatened to undermine Brock’s fundraising efforts.

“Next step is I contact all your donors and the IRS,” Grey wrote in an email dated May 19, 2010. “This is going to stink for you if you do not resolve this now.”

Wow.  I’m shocked – SHOCKED! – to learn that filthy sodomites would have anything to do with money laundering and racketeering organizations, much less RUNNING such a scheme.  Why, it’s almost as if THEY DON”T GIVE A CRAP ABOUT ANYONE EXCEPT THEMSELVES. Why, it’s almost as if THEY ARE DEVOID OF HUMAN EMPATHY.

It is almost enough to make one think that maybe – just maybe – sexual perversion and criminal activity are, like, correlated, or something.  And that maybe we should not only judge people for their sexual sins and crimes, but use people’s sex lives to inform ourselves about their fitness for participation in a civil, Christian society. Funny how this stuff is revealed to be all connected, here at the end, isn’t it?

On the left, a sodomite of the lesbian variety; on the right, a hyper-promiscuous sex-addict and serial rapist.

Starting Thursday Off Right: Black Saints Matter Edition

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

Meet St. Maurice, or Mauritius. You need to know ALL about him. St. Maurice was the leader of the elite Roman Theban Legion headquartered in Egypt. The Theban Legion was comprised of 6,666 men, who all converted, with their commander Maurice, to Christianity en masse late in the Third Century. Emperor Maximian ordered the Theban Legion from Egypt to France in order to put down a peasant revolt.

When the Theban Legion arrived in France, Maximian ordered them to start persecuting Christians. The Theban Legion, led by Maurice, REFUSED TO OBEY MAXIMIAN’S ORDERS. Ahem. Cough.

Maximian ordered a decimation of the Theban Legion as punishment. The actual meaning of the word “decimation” means to kill one out of every ten men. After Maximian’s men had killed every tenth Theban, Maximian again issued orders for the Thebans to persecute Christians. Under Maurice’s virile, manful, authoritative and inspiring leadership, the Theban Legion stood firm and still refused Maximian’s orders, even though it meant certain death. Ahem. Cough.

Maximian ordered the entire remaining Theban Legion killed to the last man in what is now present-day St. Maurice-en-Valais, Switzerland.

Now, look at the picture above. St. Maurice is the soldier the middle in full battle armor, manfully grasping his ASSAULT WEAPON as he consults with St. Erasmus, on the left.

St. Maurice was a black African. He wasn’t a north African. He was a sub-Saharan black man.

St. Maurice was HUGE in the Church, and was THE patron saint of the Holy Roman Emperors. In fact, the Holy Roman Emperors knelt and were anointed before the altar of St. Maurice at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. The Austro-Hungarian emperors used St. Maurice’s spurs and sword (assault weapon) as an integral part of their coronation rite until 1916.

St. Maurice, pray for us, and especially for all servicemen who find themselves today serving under a psychopathic tyrannical oligarchy bent on the persecution of Christians. Ahem. Cough. Amen.

No Grain In The Silo

If Bergoglio had another brain… it would be lonely.

You can’t make this stuff up.  You truly can’t.  Here’s today’s bit of wizdumb from Antipope Bergoglio:

Judging and condemning a brother that sins is wrong.”

-Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Antipope, Probable False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist, and the guy who totally farts in the car and then turns up the volume on the radio to cover up the smell.

Barnhardt on Trump: New Ann Interview with Jim Sinclair's MineSet

Jim Sinclair and Bill Holter ask me about Trump and the Kabuki theatrics surrounding the faux-elections in the former U.S. beginning at the 32:30 mark. The segment before that is on markets (both metals and cattle), rule of law, and monetary theory.  The final segment is on the islamic political system qua political system.

The Jim Sinclair’s MineSet Post in full is HERE.

Remember, folks, FRONT ROW OF THE “WEDDING”. Where the dead parents would have sat.




Starting Friday Off Right: Dostoyevsky on Diabolical Narcissism

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.

“The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to such a pass that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love, and in order to occupy and distract himself without love he gives way to passions and coarse pleasures, and sinks to bestiality in his vices, all from continual lying to other men and to himself. The man who lies to himself can be more easily offended than anyone. You know it is sometimes very pleasant to take offence, isn’t it? A man may know that nobody has insulted him, but that he has invented the insult for himself, has lied and exaggerated to make it picturesque, has caught at a word and made a mountain out of a molehill — he knows that himself, yet he will be the first to take offence, and will revel in his resentment till he feels great pleasure in it, and so pass to genuine vindictiveness.

On the Current Antipapacy, the SSPX and Other Totally Non-Inflammatory Topics


There is much ground to cover here.  I shall try to keep this from devolving into a non-linear stream of consciousness.

What if I gave you a map, but the orientation was off by 90 degrees?  North was west, east was north, etc.  There would be no way you could find your way UNTIL YOU CORRECTED THE ORIENTATION. You cannot find your way on a map, or through life, unless your orientation, your base premises upon which you move through time and space, are TRUE.

I continue to get emails and also to see in comment threads on other websites that people – faithful people – are losing their faith because of Bergoglio.  I received one email from a woman who declared that Bergoglio proved that the entire notion of the Magisterium of The Church was a fiction – not just within the past three years, not just since Vatican II, but for the entire 2000 years of The Church.  This is what holding the FALSE PREMISE that Bergoglio is the pope yields.

Folks, this Bergoglio stuff and the situation with The Church is very, very easy to understand and is in no way soul-crushing or faith-killing IF one simply acknowledges what is now a moral certainty – Bergoglio is an antipope. Ratzinger’s resignation was made in SUBSTANTIAL ERROR.  The question of coercion, while interesting and certainly worthy of exploration, is with regards to the validity of the Ratzingerian resignation, moot.  The question of whether or not Ratzinger believes Bergoglio is the pope is moot.  Ratzinger’s mind is not the arbiter of reality.  Ratzinger believes his substantial error to be true – doesn’t everyone believe their errors to be true in realtime as they are making them?  Have you ever sat down and said consciously to yourself, “I know that my position/belief is false, but I consciously disregard my knowledge of said falsehood/error, and now believe that that which I know to be false is, in fact, true.”  No.  We lie to ourselves, and we believe our lies.  We come to erroneous conclusions, but we believe that our conclusions are correct.  Ratzinger has convinced himself that he could bifurcate the papacy.  This is SUBSTANTIAL ERROR. He is wrong.

Now, to the question that I see tying so many people in knots: Does it matter who the pope is?

The answer is YES.  It absolutely matters.  You’re not crazy.  You’re not dumb. You’re not a bad Catholic or a bad person for not just thinking that it matters, but that it matters tremendously, and wanting to discuss it.  People who are saying that it doesn’t matter are, very simply, wrong.

The Truth matters.
Objective reality matters.

For many of us who are converts, the Papacy is commonly the last hurdle to clear before fully acknowledging that The Church, is in fact the One. True. Church.  For me it came from the old timer that taught me the cattle business.  One evening, while he was holding forth on feedlot management concepts, specifically on the human resource management side of things, he said very simply, “Look, SOMEONE has GOT to be in charge.”  Of course.  We all know this.  In any large organization, there has to be a person with whom the buck stops, and ultimate responsibility resides.  There has to be one person who can, if need be, make final, binding decisions.  Absent this, there will be chaos and eventual implosion.  For Christ to establish His Church Militant, that is, His Church on Earth, with no one in charge, no one to make binding decisions when need be, is simply unthinkable – impossible even.  Further, we see from scripture that He not only created such an office, but imbued it with supernatural protection.  Of course He did.  Anything less would not make sense.  We aren’t talking about a feedyard.  We are talking about The Body and Bride of Christ, established by Christ, which is God’s gift to mankind through which His Truth and Grace is communicated. The paradigm is of Divine origin, and therefore is perfectly conceived and established.

When I see trad Catholics, utterly desperate to deny that Bergoglio is an antipope, saying that “it doesn’t matter”, I shake my head.

Let me be very, very blunt here.  People who up until a matter of months ago would defend the institution of the papacy as an utterly integral component of the Visible Church Militant (which it is), and are now preaching that the papacy is not important, and the identity of the Pope is not important, are, it seems to me, doing this because they are terrified of losing income – be it from a formal, paying job or from donations – or afraid of losing social status, political, or career connections.  In short, they are terrified of losing HUMAN RESPECT in some form.

Converts, especially, are looking at this situation and seeing this total about-face, taking the See of Peter from a defining and non-negotiable, deal-breaking component of Catholicism (which it is), to being declared “irrelevant” and the identity of the Pope “unknowable” IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN STATUS, INCOME, AND SOCIAL CONNECTIONS and are being scandalized right back out the door.

This has to stop.

If the papacy itself does not matter, then The Church does not matter.

If The Church does not matter, then Christ does not matter.

If Christ does not matter, then Christ is not God.

If Christ is not God, then life is hopeless and meaningless, and all that matters is maximizing immediate personal sensual gratification – by any means necessary.

Again, I cannot emphasize with enough vehemence the utter criticality of arguing from a true premise.  The truth is objective, external and KNOWABLE – most especially with regards to The Church, because The Church is VISIBLE. Where Peter is, there is The Church.  Who Peter is, and who Peter is NOT, is therefore not only important, but critically important.  Just as Ratzinger’s flippancy in attempting to abandon his RESPONSIBILITY – the excuses about continuing to wear the papal white because “there were no black cassocks available”, and perhaps even worse the blaming of his abandonment of his duties on “jet lag” from traveling to World Youth Day, a neo-pagan festival that should be permanently suspended and forgotten anyway – is not only scandalous, but insulting.  So too is the flippant argument that the papacy doesn’t matter – all to avoid taking a position that “the world” will not like.

It is precisely because I love and respect the See of Peter that I refuse to shrug at its usurpation, or to call a man that I am morally certain is an antipope, Peter.  It is NOT papolatry to NOT claim indifference to whom the pope is or is not.  I believe that the one and only currently reigning Pope, Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger, is now, because of his catastrophic actions, one of the worst, if not the very worst pope in the history of The Church. But he is still the Pope, and visibly so.

The Satanic Endgame: SCHISM

What satan is trying to do here is to drive as many people out of the One True Church as possible. He has set the chessboard masterfully, and has multiple attack angles.

FIRST: Antipope Bergoglio is going to throw the entire Novus Ordo wing of The Church into schism sooner rather than later.  Amoris Laetitia is, at its core, all about one thing: DESECRATION OF THE EUCHARIST. We all know by now that Bergoglio told a group of Argentinian clergy IN WRITING that desecration of the Eucharist by admitting to Holy Communion unrepentant adulterers and fornicators was the only correct interpretation of the document.  A document which, remember, has zero meaning or force because Bergoglio is an antipope and thus has zero authority.  Again, back to the whole true premise/false premise thing.  Next, Antipope Bergoglio will open Holy Communion to Lutherans, which will almost immediately become a winking mandate to give Holy Communion to absolutely everyone – including non-Christians. At this point, I think it will be safe to say that Bergoglio, on behalf of satan, will have fully schismed and will have set up a completely new, seperate universalist, “one world religion”, with himself at its head.

Satan wants every single human being now inside the Catholic Church to follow Bergoglio into this schism.

Which brings us to the SSPX

On the other side of the spectrum, we have traditionalism, people who will NOT follow Bergoglio into his NewFrancisOneWorldChurch.  Satan has the chessboard set for them, too.  The SSPX is currently parlaying and negotiating with Antipope Bergoglio.

Stop there for a moment:  SSPXers, do you see the problem here?  You are negotiating your status WITH AN ANTIPOPE.  How can this possibly yield good fruit for you, The Church or anyone else?  Again, we’re back to the essential nature of the TRUE PREMISE.  These negotiations are built upon the false premise that you are negotiating in good faith with the Vicar of Christ.  Please do not delude yourself into believing that you are negotiating with +Pozzo and Ecclesia Dei separate and apart from Bergoglio.  This is Bergoglio’s trap.  It is Bergoglio that will double cross you, no matter how precise and air-tight your written agreement with Ecclesia Dei is.  These men are evil and without shame or honor.  Written agreements mean NOTHING to them.  Written agreements are a joke to them, a tool to be used on men that they consider to be “rubes”.  IF you enter into an agreement with Antipope Bergoglio, he will renege on it immediately and come down on you just as he did with the FFI’s, and now the contemplative communities.  If you don’t enter into an agreement with Antipope Bergoglio, he will unilaterally declare you part of his NewFrancisOneWorldChurch and then come down on you like a ton of bricks.

WHY?  Very simply, satan, who is behind all of this, wants all of the traditionalists to SCHISM THEMSELVES.

Bishop Fellay knows that if he capitulates to Antipope Bergoglio that a massive number of his priests and faithful WILL LEAVE THE SSPX AND GO TO SEDEVACANTIST SECTS THAT ARE ALREADY IN SCHISM.

If Bishop Fellay ceases negotiations with Antipope Bergoglio, Bergoglio will unilaterally declare the SSPX to be “in”, and will demand that the SSPX capitulate to his demands.  When the SSPX refuses, Antipope Bergoglio will then declare the SSPX to be in schism.  And here is the nuance of the satanic chess strategy: it’s a bluff.  Don’t you see?  Bergoglio IS NOT THE POPE.  His declarations have the same force as mine.  Bergoglio can’t force you to do anything, nor can he declare you to be in schism for not capitulating to his heresies and blasphemies.  Satan is trying to TRICK THE SSPX INTO BELIEVING THAT THEY ARE IN SCHISM, WHEN, IN FACT, THEY ARE NOT.

Once again, all of this depends on operating from a TRUE PREMISE, namely that Bergoglio is an antipope, and that Ratzinger, in spite of his spectacular error and failings, is Peter. And if it is any consolation to both the SSPX and to those of you out there in general reading this, Rome contacts have told me that Bergoglio is now openly discussed as probably being an antipope within the Curia, but they are all so terrified of him due to their careerist mentalities, that they all agree that there is “nothing we can do” and that “we just have to wait for him to die.”

And now for what I think the path forward for the SSPX should be – and I know full well that I am going to lose almost everyone who is still reading this, but it makes no difference.

The SSPX should cease all negotiations with Bergoglio, publicly state that it is a moral certainty that Bergoglio is not the pope, and publicly declare allegiance to the one and only living Vicar of Christ, Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger.

Ratzinger will never do anything – for good or ill – to the SSPX, because he refuses to exercise his responsibility as Pope.  Further, this will make clear that the SSPX will recognize NO actions taken against it by Bergoglio, AND that the SSPX remains exactly as it is, inside The Church, faithful to the Holy See.  And then the SSPX will truly become before this is all over, I strongly suspect, a lifeboat.

And referencing what I stated above about the Roman Curia now discussing Bergoglio as a likely antipope, but feeling helpless – perhaps a bold statement by the SSPX that there is now a moral certainty that Bergoglio is an antipope would be enough of an icebreaker to allow others within the Curia, and perhaps even the College of Cardinals to discuss it openly as well.

But they key to this is the private and public insistence upon operating from a true premise – and frankly, shouldn’t it be so in everything we do, both big and small?  It is not lost on me that the leap of faith that Our Lord is asking us to take is to declare loyalty to the probable worst pope in the history of The Church – Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger.

If I were in charge, which thank God I’m not, that’s what I would do. As the person ultimately in charge of myself, and who will answer for my life at my Particular Judgment, that is what I have and will continue to do.

I hope this helps.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us.


Starting 9/11 Off Right: Oh God Edition

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

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

Like so many that day, the last act Kevin Cosgrove did on the Earth was to cry out to God.

Fifteen years on and the predominant feeling is one of utter waste.  When we look back at events like Pearl Harbor, we can at least say, “You did not die in vain.”  With 9/11, it is now crystal clear that they all died in vain.  9/11 could have been a watershed event that stopped and reversed the descent into terminal effeminacy and auto-destruction of western Christendom.  Instead, it marked the point when the curve rotated into a parabolic spike of self-loathing and the basest narcissism and nihilistic decadence that human civilization has ever seen.

If the axiom is true that the darkest hour is just before dawn, then 9/11 and all of its horror was not the darkest hour.  It is going to get much, much darker.  How could it not?

When our hour comes, I pray we are able to die, like Kevin Cosgrove, with “God” on our lips.
