Of Course Antipope Bergoglio Is Going To Overturn Humanae Vitae

First, yes, I am still going to write up my “Part 2” on the JOOOOZ, specifically the people who don’t want Jews to convert and be saved, and thus censor anyone putting forth information that might actually convert Jews.

But first, just because it is big news today, we need to revisit a couple of things about Pope Paul VI Montini and the grave mortal sin of contraception.  Why? Because it is now being reported that the filthy, wretched Antipope, Jorge Bergoglio, has formed a commission to “re-interpret” Humanae Vitae, the document promulgated in ARSH 1968, which explicitly reaffirmed the consistent teaching of the Holy Catholic Church that contraception was grave mortal sin.

Of course Antipope Bergoglio is going to overthrow this.  I wrote a piece years ago explaining why.  The link is below, but in a nutshell, faggot priests, which Bergoglio and his minions are, want to put heterosexual sex between husbands and wives on the same plane as their filthy, disgusting acts of anal, oral and manual sodomy.  They hate God, and what they are doing is attacking God the only way that demons and their human analogues can, by dragging into hell as many people as they can.  In this case, they want to see as many normal, heterosexual, married people lost to hell for engaging in sex acts that are intentionally, willfully blocked to the transmission of life – just like all of the faggots and their depraved, perverse sex acts.

And how successful they have been.  Think about it.  In the world today, it is very reasonable to assume that the majority of sex acts that occur are intentionally sterile, and not because the majority of humans are sodomites, but because almost everyone, including married people, in the post-Christian West and almost all of East Asia, including China, contracept.

Here’s the link to the original piece from 30 January, ARSH 2012 titled, “THE ENTIRE, SAD CONTRACEPTION ISSUE EXPLAINED”.

Next, a reminder about the document Humanae Vitae itself.



Pope Paul VI was a notorious sodomite. He took the Papal name “Paul” not after the Apostle to the Gentiles, but after one of his steady and preferred sodomy partners, an Italian movie star named Paolo Carlini. Remember how we have discussed the fact that Diabolical Narcissists derive intense satisfaction from rubbing people’s faces in their crimes and sins? Carlini had the run of the Apostolic Palace in Milan while Montini was the Cardinal Archbishop there, frequently being seen walking about the halls in the pre-dawn hours of the night, and, sure enough, he was also a familiar face to the Swiss Guards, seen coming and going from the Apostolic Palace in the wee hours after Montini ascended to the Throne of Peter.  Paul VI Montini himself, perhaps racked by some last vestiges of shame and guilt, would frequently be found in the mornings by his staff, lying in the fetal position on the floor of his room, sobbing uncontrollably. The man was a complete train wreck, in addition to being a lying, backstabbing fiend.

And, we can see that this whole business of laymen having gay sex with priests and bishops inside the Vatican that we have today is just a continuation of what was going on before and not some sort of a new sodomitical movement.

Remember this when Antipope Bergoglio “canonizes” Montini a saint.

Anyway, Paul VI, being a faggot, a Communist and a Freemason was ALL ABOUT ratifying contraception, and he told all of his Commie-faggot buddies from the Lodge that he would do just that. But Good Cardinal Ottaviani saved the day. And the Commie-faggots never forgave Paul VI.  This is why people say that Paul VI died “universally hated”.  The Catholics knew what he was, and knew what his Missal was, and the Freemasons, Commies and faggots all thought that he had double-crossed them, or at minimum chickened out.  That is why they openly rebelled against Humanae Vitae, and why Paul VI cracked down on bishops who DEFENDED “Paul VI’s own document”.

Barnhardt Podcast #008: Massa Cosby and All His Little House Negroes

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss Bill Cosby and his effeminate supporting caste of beta narcissists — including his wife — who allowed and empowered him to act as sexual predator for DECADES. Also, Ann wonders: “If I learn to read bad poetry really slowly, can I be a Wise Woman of Color(tm) too?” And we discuss a listener’s email and how it applies to another group of beta narcissists, Professional Catholics, and why they don’t enunciate the full truth.

This week’s required studying: the section on Alpha/Beta Diabolic Narcissist dynamics from her video:

Feedback: You can email Ann and her co-host at [email protected] with your questions, comments, anecdotes, etc.

Dear Ann, Can You Please Explain The Trinity?

(Happy Trinity Sunday.  This is a repost, with a couple of additions, from several years ago.)

Dear Ann,

Could you please explain the Trinity?

Unreasonably High Expectations


Dear Unreasonably High Expectations,


No one can. It is a mystery. And I find this consoling. Frankly, the fact that the Church says straight-out that there are certain things about God Almighty which are simply unable to be comprehended by human beings is a testament to the legitimacy of the Church as a teaching authority. Never trust any human being or group of human beings who claim to “know everything”. Anyone who claims to know everything or have all of the answers is, by definition, a liar right out of the chute, because only God knows everything.   

There are several huge mysteries of faith: the Trinity (one God in Three Divine Persons), the Incarnation (Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the aforementioned Triune Godhead, being both fully God and fully man) and the Eucharist (bread and wine being transubstantiated into the physical substance of the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ).

How can God be One in Being, but Father, Son and Holy Ghost? I dunno. It’s a mystery.

How can Jesus be both fully God and fully Man? I dunno. It’s a mystery.

How can something that was bread a few minutes ago, and still looks like bread, and still smells and tastes like bread actually be the Substance of God? And how did that change occur? I dunno. It’s a mystery.

Regarding the Trinity, here is what we do know. The primary point and revelation of God in the Old Testament is the reality that there is not a “pantheon” of many gods, but that there is, in fact, only ONE God. If you had to pin down what the point of the Old Testament is – that’s it in a very, very oversimplified simple nutshell. GOD IS ONE.

The Torah, or the first five books of the Old Testament, were written by Moses. The entire point of Moses’ life was to bear witness to the fact that there is only ONE GOD. There was absolutely no ambiguity about this. None. But, if we look at literally the FIRST CHAPTER of the book of Genesis, we see something amazing. Verse 26:

“And He said: Let Us make man to Our image and likeness: and let him have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the beasts, and the whole earth, and every creeping creature that moveth upon the earth.”

(Et ait: Faciamus hominem ad imaginem et similitudinem nostram….)

Moses spent most of his adult life in interface with (I refuse to use the word “encounter” anymore. It has been rendered utterly trite by those who speak in Modernist, post-Conciliar gibber-babble) and witnessing to The ONE TRUE GOD. And yet Moses can’t get more than a couple hundred words into his written record and he is using PLURAL PRONOUNS – “Us” and “Our” – when quoting the ONE TRUE GOD. SURELY Moses, of all people, wouldn’t make the sloppy mistake of using plural pronouns. SURELY someone around Moses, and for the centuries upon centuries afterward, would say, “Hey! You’ve got plural pronouns here! Shouldn’t we fix that? Afterall, it completely undercuts the whole “GOD IS ONE” thing we are trying to communicate here.”

Nope. Not only did Moses write it that way, but it STAYED that way for all of these centuries. I find Genesis 1:26 to be one of the most compelling proofs of the Divine Inspiration of scripture and of the proactive work of the Holy Ghost in not only revealing truth, but also protecting and maintaining that deposit of revealed truth. Think of all of those centuries before Our Lord’s Incarnation when the Jews COULD have singularized those two little pronouns/verb conjugations – and no one ever did.

One of the most important points about the Triune Godhead is this: God is RELATIONAL to Himself. God is Love – and what is Perfect Love? Perfect Love is the complete giving of one’s self, and Perfect Love is the act of fully RECEIVING and then returning love. Soooo . . . if God is NOT relational to Himself, how could He have existed as Perfect Existential Love “before” the creation of the universe? Whom was He loving? Was He sitting around pondering Himself? How does inward-turned singular “naval gazing” constitute a GIFT of self? What love was He receiving? How could God receive love if He was the only thing that existed?

Again, these are the questions that any thinking person slams up against fairly early in any genuine conversion or reversion experience, and yes, we all SHOULD be asking these questions because we cannot love that which we have not first apprehended with our intellects. And, the more we intellectually apprehend something, the more we can then love it. The asking of questions – whether they be concerning the natural world, other people, or God Himself – is, at its root, an act of love. Remember that the next time you’re in the company of a three year old: “Why? Why? Why?” Beware the man who asks no questions, for that is a man bereft of love.

How could God receive love if He was the only thing that existed? Because God is, in Himself, able to relate to Himself. Christ revealed to us that God is Three Divine Persons, all distinct but yet completely One in Being. Got your head around that? No, of course not. We can’t FULLY grasp that existential reality any more than we can grasp and explicitly describe what a fifth dimension would look like. But Christ did give us names for the Three Persons in Matthew 28:19 so that we could relate a little bit to the Trinity. Those names are: Father, Son and Holy Ghost. The words “Father and Son” are not a perfect analogue because the Father did not exist before the Son, as in the human case. The Three Divine Persons of the Trinity are co-eternal. The best partial-analogy of this is fire. When a match is struck, the flame, the light from the flame and the heat from the flame all coexist concurrently. The flame does not pre-exist the light and the heat, nor does the heat pre-exist the light or the flame. We can grasp this, but what is impossible for the human mind to grasp on this mortal coil (and probably beyond, too) is the eternity of God. No one can explain that. No one can explain or fully comprehend eternity. All we can do is name it, and then get on with living.

So, God the Father gives Himself fully to God the Son. God the Son then fully receives that love, and then returns it to God the Father fully. This infinite back-and-forth of love is so existentially perfect that it yields a Third, which Jesus taught us to call “The Holy Ghost”.

(**Fascinating addition: It has been explained to me by philosophers that ONLY GOD is capable of the “total gift of self” that is the cornerstone of JohnPaul II’s “Theology of the Body”. The reason why “Theology of the Body” is deeply heretical and slides almost instantly into personalist phenomenology (the philosophical school that JPII subscribed to, which denies that objects exist outside of human consciousness of them, and thus that the mind of man is the supreme arbiter of existence… or some absolute bullshit like that.  Yeah.  JPII was one confused dude.  Pray for his soul…) is because it is built on the false premise that a human man can “give himself completely” to his wife, and that the woman can receive “the total gift of self” from her husband and then return it as a “total gift of herself” to him.  WRONG.  A man contributing his DNA, and a woman contributing her DNA is not even remotely close to “a total gift of self”, nor is any unitive byproduct of a marital union even close to “total gift of self”.  No, make no mistake, only THE MOST HOLY TRINITY can do that.  Not even St. Joseph and Our Lady, as much as they loved each other and were united in this world, ever got anywhere close to “total gift of self” because it simply is not possible for human beings to do this.  We cannot “fall through each others’ souls” or anything even remotely close to that.  We can love, and must love, but we cannot delude ourselves into believing that “we are like God” and are able to “make a total gift of self”, and we certainly can’t delude ourselves into thinking, as many, many TOB followers do, that the marital sex act IS THE TOTAL GIFT OF SELF.  It is not, and that’s just sick. This is common sense. But guys, lots of these TOB people actually think this, and use it as justification for sins of the highest gravity, including sacrilegious fornication and even sodomy. Believe me, after the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart, there will be NO MORE “Theology of the Body” on this planet.  So, I would advise going ahead and trashing everything you own that is TOB-based, in anticipation of the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart!) Long story short, TOB places “the unitive good of the spouses” on an equal plane as the procreation and rearing of children, instead of having procreation alone at the top, with the unitive benefits to the spouses as a secondary priority.  This mis-ordering combined with personalism, has led directly to divorce, contraception, abortion, sodomy, transsexualism and whatever damn filthy perversion is next.)

The big human metaphor to all of this is human procreation. A man loves his wife and gives his DNA to her. The wife loves her husband and thus receives his DNA and offers her own DNA in return. The gifts of DNA then becomes a third person (with the essential involvement of God).  But this is obviously only an analogy – it is useful and important, but not an equivalence. Not even close.

Thus, the Triune Godhead is the foundational reality, and human marriage and procreation is the DERIVATIVE, which points back in analogical form to the underlying and infinitely greater reality of the Trinity. This is why marriage, the marital act and procreation are so utterly sacred – even though they are only an analogy, and thus so destructive when perverted, sadly in these dark days with the consent and even cooperation of the very shepherds who should be laying down their lives to protect the sacrosanctity of marriage and sexuality. But, who am I to judge. I need to quit obsessing, and focus on what’s truly important, like youth unemployment and the self-esteem of musloid “migrant children”. But I digress.

And yes, eventually every derivative expires, and upon expiry there is a delivery and the books get settled and squared. That would be “death” and “judgment”. As a (former) futures broker, I like that part. ?

Here is a classic secular song that I have always heard with a Trinitarian ear, “Nature Boy”, best performed by Nat King Cole.

“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn, is just to love, and be loved in return.”


Hate Speech! Barnhardt Podcast on the Jews Banned by YouTube!

We laff. We laff hard.

First off, let me offer my thanks to all of the Nerds out there who totally understood SuperNerd’s instructions and archived my entire YouTube catalog.  Can I make one more request of you Nerds?  My “Islamic Sexuality: A Survey of Evil” video presentation was censored by YouTube years ago.  BUT, it lives on in mirrored copies on YouTube.  Could you guys go find a good version and be sure that is archived as well?  That is, by far, my most watched video presentation. Between my original copy and all of the mirrors (with many of them subtitled in foreign languages), it has been viewed millions of times, and continues to spread.

In less than 12 hours, YouTube banned Podcast #007 after it was “flagged” and deemed “hate speech”.  The .MP3 version is still up, because that lives on SuperNerd’s server.

It must have been one heckuva Podcast, huh?  I mean, seriously, the musloid political system uses YouTube as its main recruitment media platform, posting videos of beheadings, and the rantings and ravings of pedophile imams (but I repeat myself) calling for the wholesale slaughter of all Jews and all non-musloids.  And those videos stay up, no problem.  So what MUST I have said to have been banned within just a few hours??

Here’s an email from a reader/listener:

Dear Ann and SuperNerd,

Thank you for yesterday’s podcast (and of course the previous ones as well). I was not surprised, yet saddened, to see it removed from Youtube sometime during the night, most likely as somehow ‘anti-Semitic’, when in reality, it is one of the most charitable and truthful discussions on the Jews I have seen in a long time. So many these days are content to allow the Jews and others to remain steeped in their false religions, yet if we truly love their immortal souls, we should be seeking their unconditional conversion to the Catholic Faith, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there is no true social order, before it is too late. And truly, all of the evils of our time come from the lukewarmness of bad Catholics, of whom I am foremost to blame.

You also gave me some inspiration in a conversation I am currently having with some very anti-Catholic Protestants, who currently are denying that the Catholic Church gave them the Holy Bible, saying the Jews gave us the Bible, and that all the apostles were Jews. Which in a certain sense is correct but of course in error at the same time. Anyway, I now have a better angle to attack them from thanks to your discussion on how the Holy, Royal, and August Sacrifice of the Mass is a continuation of the Jewish sacrifice, perfected by the Passion and ignominous death of our Blessed Lord and Saviour on the wood of the Holy Cross.

Thank you again, God bless, and keep up the good fight!

Now, there are two main possibilities as to who “flagged” the video as “hate speech”, and this is a fascinating dynamic unto itself. The first group would obviously be Jews who deem any suggestion that Jesus Christ is, in fact, the Messiah and the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Triune and Incarnate in the Second Person of the Godhead, and that they must be baptized and enter the Church just like everyone else as “hate speech”.  Coincidentally, just yesterday the Communist Senator Bernie Sanders, an ethnically Jewish atheist, gave us an example of this very thing!

In a confirmation hearing for White House Deputy Budget Director nominee Russell Vought, Sanders had a full-on hissy fit because a Christian professes to believe in Christianity and Jesus Christ.  Because as I have said here many, many times, the greatest sin any Christian can commit in the world today is to “actually believe any of that bullshit“.  The heresy of Modernism, which is the synthesis of ALL heresies, can be summed up as “not actually believing what you believe.”  Watch:

And, infuriatingly, Vought categorically refused to answer Sanders’ questions directly.  I simply cannot understand how people can be so weak and so effeminate.  As soon as someone asks you if you believe what you believe with a contemptuous tone… you FOLD LIKE A CHEAP SHIRT? Disgusting. The lukewarmness, it truly does make one want to vomit.

When someone asks you if musloids and Jews “stand condemned”, you say, “YES!! Of course they stand condemned! Can’t you understand simple English?  Jesus Christ is the Messiah! Jesus Christ IS the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob incarnate! Jesus Christ is the one-and-only WAY, the one-and-only TRURH and the one-and only LIFE! I believe this with every fiber of my being.  This is why all Christians are called to preach the Gospel and to baptize all nations in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. Because God desires the salvation of EVERY MAN WITHOUT EXCEPTION, and Jesus Christ is God, established His Holy Church, and commissioned every one of us to spread His Gospel and baptize all nations, I must tell you and every other person who is outside of The Church that so long as you reject Jesus Christ and His Holy Church, you are condemned. This goes for musloids, Jews, atheists, and anyone else.”

But, of course, no.  We have to slime our way through a bullshit non-answer just to make sure that as many people as possible see that “Christians” today are embarrassed and ashamed to admit that they believe in even the most fundamental truths of Christianity.  Because, someone might make a frowny-face.  It’s just nauseating.

Tomorrow, Group Two, anti-Semites who don’t want any Jews to be saved, and thus will censor anyone who tries to actually evangelize Jews.  Sadly, there is a huge contingent of these people among Trad/sedevacantist Catholics.  We’ll discuss that tomorrow.

Starting Ember Friday In the Octave of Pentecost Off Right: The Mediocre Man 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.

Garrigou-Lagrange. Most assuredly NOT a mediocre man.

“The truly mediocre man admirers everything a little and nothing with warmth… He considers every affirmation insolent, because every affirmation excludes the contradictory proposition. But if you are slightly friendly and slightly hostile to all things, he will consider you wise and reserved. The mediocre man says there is good and evil in all things, and that we must not be absolute in our judgements.

If you strongly affirm the truth, the mediocre man will say that you have too much confidence in yourself.

The mediocre man regrets that the Christian religion has dogmas. He would like it to teach ethics, and if you tell him that its code of morals comes from its dogmas as the consequence comes from the principle, he will answer that you exaggerate…If the word ‘exaggeration’ did not exist, the mediocre man would invent it.

The mediocre man appears habitually modest. He can not be humble, or he would cease to be mediocre.

The humble man scorns all lies, even where glorified by the whole earth, and he bows the knee before every truth…If the naturally mediocre man becomes seriously Christian, he ceases absolutely to be mediocre…

The man who loves is never mediocre.

Just in case…

[NB: While the blog post below — from over two years ago — was in relation to something else, with the Great YouTube Purge about to begin it’s handy to remember and, perhaps, apply. –SN]

As you might have noticed, the video of episode #007 of the Barnhardt Podcast was pulled because YouTube deemed it to be “hate speech.” Ann will be writing more about that but in the mean time if you would like to download all of the videos on Ann’s YouTube channel, here are the steps.

Warning: these steps are not for casual computer users; you need to be somewhat nerdy to pull off the following and I’m afraid neither Ann nor I can provide technical support. We only need a handful of folks to do the following, not everyone who follows her blog.

  1. Install youtube-dl (on Windows use Chocolatey; on macOS use Homebrew; on Linux–if you’re using Linux you already know)
  2. Install ffmpeg (again: Chocolatey, Brew, or your own cleverness depending on your O/S)
  3. Copy and paste the following text into your terminal of choice and grab some popcorn… this will take a little while (Windows: PowerShell; macOS: Terminal; Linux: depends on your religion/distro of choice):
  4. Send and email to [email protected] with the text “Youtube Channel Backed Up” in the subject line so we have a rolodex of folks to contact in case we need to rebuild the content of the YouTube channel at some point.

Barnhardt Podcast #007: Joooooz!

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss the non-news that is the continuing violence in the name of Islam, that Islam isn’t a religion but a political order motivated by greed and domination. We also delve into a topic raised by multiple listener feedback emails: the “Jewish Conspiracy” and their control of the music industry, Hollywood, science, finance, etc. Most listeners shouldn’t be surprised that Ann’s not on board with the hyperventilating people with secret knowledge to share; rather we discuss Real Truth and how to apply it to Jews, Muslims, Protestants — everyone.

Why America Is Well and Truly Screwed. God Shed His Grace? I Think Not.

From a comment thread on my “Cut the Crap. Islam Must Be Exterminated…” piece, syndicated elsewhere:

The irony of dismissing their pedo moon god and demanding that he be superseded by her dead man on a stick and his mother, is lost on her.

Its a joke don’t get your rosary in a knot.

I agree…in part. Islam has to go. But I imagine is Miss. Barnhardt had her way we would all be forced at gun point to bow down to her little imaginary friend. No thanks to her. No thanks to Muhammed.

Tell me again how much God lurvs ‘Murcia and He will totes save its sorry ass.  Go ahead.  I’m all ears.

THIS is why “the mother of the the dead man on a stick” – remember that – asked for penance at Fatima, and so very little as the First Five Saturdays devotion. This is what is meant by “reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary”. If you ever wondered, look no further.

And pray for these poor, poor people.  If you don’t no one else will.  Consider that. And this is why I would like to organize a DAILY Requiem Mass for all of the people who die the day before – so people like the men who wrote the comments above at the very least have ONE Requiem said for them as they face in ultimate judgment the selfsame Love that died in agony for them, personally.

In case anyone, including any people who are addicted to pornography and fornication, would like to review who “the Dead Man on a Stick” is, and how much He loves them, a short explanation is HERE. Also, take this moment to reflect on the fact that Our Lord loves these men who utterly reject Him and blaspheme Him every bit as much as He loves us, and maybe more.  We aren’t any “higher” than these men, and might very well have been created to be lower in heaven than they. Lucifer himself was the highest-ranking, most exquisite angelic being God created, after all. Our Lord’s Heart BURNS with love for these men just as much as those of us who go to daily Trid Mass, etc.  Never forget that.

Here is a helpful visual reminder of what Perfect Love, Truth, Mercy, Justice and Beauty gratuitously did to redeem Grenadier1, Amp, Ann Barnhardt, and all of Ann Barnhardt’s enemies. Please pray to the Dead Man on a Stick to have mercy on us.


Starting Pentecost Tuesday Off Right: One Great Secret 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.

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.


Nowhere in Sacred Scripture do we find warrant for the popular myth of the Devil as a buffoon who is dressed like the first “red.” Rather is he described as an angel fallen from heaven, as “the Prince of this world,” whose business it is to tell us that there is no other world. His logic is simple: if there is no heaven there is no hell; if there is no hell, then there is no sin; if there is no sin, then there is no judge, and if there is no judgment then evil is good and good is evil. But above all these descriptions, Our Lord tells us that he will be so much like Himself that he would deceive even the elect — and certainly no devil ever seen in picture books could deceive even the elect.


In the midst of all his seeming love for humanity and his glib talk of freedom and equality, he will have one great secret which he will tell to no one: he will not believe in God. Because his religion will be brotherhood without the fatherhood of God, he will deceive even the elect. He will set up a counterchurch which will be the ape of the Church, because he, the Devil, is the ape of God. It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content.
