Barnhardt Podcast #065: Awakening Awareness of the Avalanche of Avarice

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode, after a good-news update on Tiny Princess, we discuss the “national vice” of avarice and how this vice, at times, results in unequal protection under the law. Rugged individualism and seeking one’s fortune has long been considered an American virtue but corporations are now determining what is and isn’t virtue and de facto cutting off access to the financial system to companies they deem unworthy (gun manufacturers, abrasive free-speech practitioners, tax-protestors) to say nothing of companies flat-out ignoring the rule of law and doing what they want (MF Global et al). Also among the daughters of avarice are morally evil decisions made by individuals for the sake of economics — contraception and abortion being perhaps the two biggest — and the many forms of coercion enabled by crushing debts (college, automobile, house, credit cards) which the residents of the Land of the Free are morphed into morally weak, high-functioning slaves unwilling to rock the boat lest they lose their earthly possessions. We’ve allowed an evil angelic intellect to stack the deck and our star-spangled country will surely reap judgement in this world.

Annual Tradition: Will There Be Any Stars In My Crown?

Every year I am surprised and humbled by how many greetings and good wishes come in – you all MUST have marked the date in your Outlook or whatever Contacts/email platform you use and get an automatic notification?  At any rate, thank you so very, very much for the kind remembrances and prayers.

Let us keep the annual tradition, begun fifteen years ago now, just a matter of a few weeks after I launched Barnhardt.biz as a website to post my morning and afternoon cattle and grain market comments, of posting one of my favorite bluegrass songs performed by the Cox Family featuring Alison Krauss, “Will There Be Any Stars In My Crown?”  The first time I posted it back in ARSH 2003, one of my clients called to thank me for it, and then somewhat impishly confessed that when he was a lad, he and his friends had a…ahem…secular version that they would sing, “Will There Be Any Coke In My Crown?”… when at evening the sun goeth down…etc.

I suppose this means that perhaps tonight’s festal cocktail could be a Coke and Crown Royal, in honor the the Feast of the Kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King by birth and King by conquest!

Lord Jesus Christ, Sovereign King, have mercy on us!

I am thinking today of that beautiful land
We shall reach when the sun goeth down
When through wonderful grace by my Saviour I stand
Will there be any stars in my crown?
Will there be any stars, any stars in my crown
When at evening the sun goeth down?
When I wake with the blest in those mansions of rest
Will there be any stars in my crown?
In the strength of the Lord let me labor and pray
Let me watch as a winner of souls

That bright stars may be mine in that glorious day
When His praise like the sea billow rolls.
Oh, what joy it will be when His face I behold
Living gems at His feet to lay down
It would sweeten my bliss in the city of gold
Should there be any stars in my crown.

 

 

Mailbag: Email From Father of a Novus Ordo Nun & Email From an Eyewitness to the Picture of the Scary Witch-nuns I posted

Hello Ann;
I have been a big fan and consumer of your words and podcasts for some time.
I thought you might find interesting the fact that my daughter is a religious- a sister of the Little Sisters of the Poor (yes, the very ones that have been dragged into court to not have to abide by the HHS mandate). She entered nearly ten years ago (at the age of 21), and took her permanent vows about two years ago in La Tour , France. My wife and I were there to witness it.
The point of all of this is that when she was trying to settle on an order to join all those years ago, she was drawn eventually to the Little Sisters because of the traditional habits and the orthodoxy (no coincidence, I’m sure) they espoused.
She was generally turned off by the attitude of the ‘modern’ sisters she encountered in those orders she approached that had eschewed the traditional habits for the ‘business casual’ attire- if pant suits fit that description. Sadly, although my daughter was much more charitable in her description, they sounded much like the ‘women’ you describe in the beginning of your article.
Hope you will find this brief story vindicating.
By the way, she is very happy in her vocation of choice; she serves the indigent elderly in her care with the dignity and cheer they deserve, and is perhaps the happiest most fulfilled-acting ‘millennial’ I know. Praise be to God.
Best regards, and God Bless,
Proud Papa
This is what the Little Sisters of the Poor look like.  Notice how FEMININE they look.  From the youngest one in the lower-left who could be your daughter or sister, to the elderly sister on the lower-right, who looks like your grandma or great aunt.  Just because none of these ladies, if dressed in civilian clothes, would ever be on the cover of a worldly fashion magazine doesn’t mean that they aren’t feminine.  Really, what we are saying here is that these women are NORMAL.  And HAPPY!  I personally haven’t had much contact with Traditional nuns, but what I hear across the board from people who do is that Trad nuns are some of the happiest women on the planet.  They radiate not just contentment, but active JOY.  I did eat Chinese food years ago in a big group with Mother Cecilia (Now Abess Cecilia) of the Benedictines of Gower, Missouri, and the whole table laughed riotously throughout the meal.  I barely got through my Curry Duck.  Everyone who went to their recent consecration of the Church and elevation of Mother Cecilia to Abess reported that the whole thing was one of the most contagiously JOYFUL things that have ever experienced.
—-With regard to habited Novus Ordo nuns like the Little Sisters shown and referenced above, I dare say that when the Novus Ordo is ABROGATED, and folks, I think that glorious day is coming sooner than any of us suspect, these habited nuns will take to the Old Mass like fish to water.  Thirty minutes of instruction in how to use a hand missal, and ONE WEEK of daily Mass, and that will be all it takes. Trust me.
Now, to email #2…

Ann,

Well, that photo was a bit of a surprise. That’s our family’s home parish — and we were at that Mass. Sigh.

The average age of those “religious” might arguably be skewed because they were there to commemorate significant anniversaries — 40 years, 50 years, 60 years, that sort of thing. Doesn’t take away from your point, though. Of the dozens of them there, I think I saw exactly ONE in a traditional habit — exactly ONE woman in the group who looked like a Catholic nun, instead of… well you put it well enough.
I remember looking across at them thinking, “Yikes.” I hope the children don’t notice. (Lovely, isn’t it, how one has to consider the possibility of scandal while being present at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.)
Signed,
New York State of Mind
Yep.  What this parent keyed in on is a very important concept: SCANDAL.  This person’s children are all old enough to be scared/confused/scandalized by essentially cross-dressing “nuns”.  These witch nuns started cross-dressing openly in the 1970s.  Think about it.  Lesbian nuns were the first “camel’s nose under the tent” in the toleration and then acceptance and ratification of the mortal sin and capital crime against the Divine Law, transvestitism.  “Sister” Terry was the direct antecedent to Bruce Jenner.
The parent who took their children to the Mass that I pictured in my piece was literally scared that their children would be DAMAGED AND FRIGHTENED by the very sight of these women.  At the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass!!
I remember well as a child being around nuns and ex-nuns of the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth whom I COULD NOT TELL BY LOOKING AT THEM whether they were male or female.  As a child, I remember being repulsed by these women, and mildly frightened, even though the knowledge of the existence of the sins of sodom were still years in front of me.  Sodomites do harm not just by physically molesting or raping – they do harm by the very scandal of their comportment.  This is why you MUST MUST MUST keep your children away from their “gay uncle” or their “dyke aunt”.  The very toleration of their presence QUA sex perverts is a CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER to the immortal souls of your children.
Further, consider how many people in the 1970’s, 80’s and early 90’s were confirmed and ratified in mortal sin by these witches, who were frequently charged with marriage prep courses and thus told countless thousands if not millions of couples to contracept without any hesitation.  I have received over the years now countless emails from both men and women who were specifically told by priests and nuns that “Rome is wrong” about contraception, and thus thwarted the existence of their own children that God wanted to lavish upon them, but they, in a sense, exterminated, and that they now grievously mourn.
Further consider how many people were either totally malformed, or were driven out in revulsion – an undeniable sense that “something is VERY wrong here” – by these witch nuns who were tasked with running so many RCIA programs.
Finally, as the seminal book “Goodbye, Good Men” documents, it was PRECISELY these lesbian witch nuns that stood as gatekeepers of most of the seminaries in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, and still do hold sway in many Novus Ordo seminaries, and ACTIVELY rejected and ejected men who were heterosexual, orthodox, believing Catholics from the seminaries.  They would ask applicants and seminarians their opinions on female ordination and sexual perversion, and if the the answer didn’t come back from the young man squarely in favor of “female ordination” especially, the young man would never make it in the door, or if he did make it in, would be tossed for being “rigid” or for being patriarchal or misogynistic.  Oh, yes.  The lesbian witch nuns worked hand-in-glove with the faggot mafia to turn seminaries and the priesthood into a massive sodomitical mafia.
Remember folks, when we don’t speak up and call this stuff out, it isn’t just ourselves we are hurting.  Consider the other people around you that COULD be saved from a life of sin, or from being scandalized out of the Church if just ONE PERSON had stood up and said, “Excuse me, “Sister” Terry, but your butch lesbian aesthetic, which you are CLEARLY going out of your way to project, is a mortal sin, a crime against the Natural and Divine Law, and is completely intolerable.  I will not stand for even the slightest hint of sexual perversion nor heresy, and thus I demand that you leave this gathering IMMEDIATELY.”
REMEMBER:
9 Ways to participate in the sins of others:

1.1. By counsel (to give advice, one’s opinion or instructions.)

1.2. By command (to demand, to order, such as in the military.)

1.3. By consent (to give permission, to approve, to agree to.)

1.4. By provocation (to dare.)

1.5. By praise or flattery (to cheer, to applaud, to commend.)

1.6. By concealment (to hide the action, to cover-up.)

1.7. By partaking (to take part, to participate.)

1.8. By silence (by playing dumb, by remaining quiet.)

1.9. By defense of the ill done (to justify, to argue in favor.)

Note: To participate in the sins of another person means that one is just as guilty of the sin as the one who committed them. For example, if you encourage someone to have an abortion, you are guilty of the sin of abortion.  If you remain quiet about transvestitism, or the teaching of heresy….

Email of the Month: “On the Natural Superiority of Mules”

Re: The Natural Superiority of Mules
Hello Ann,
Thank you. I haven’t attended Mass in almost a decade. I’m as stubborn as a mule and Red “Francis” is an excellent excuse to stay home and sleep in. Certainly, I’ve had the urge to return. And abandoning the Church in its time of need isn’t my style.
Your post about the benefits of Mass was the final straw. You gave me that final push out the barn door. I found a Latin Mass here in the area. My first ever. The priest managed to denounce abortion, same-sex “marriage”, and Red “Francis” in one short sermon. It was good to be back. It was necessary.
I was starving and have now been nourished. You have my eternal gratitude.
Thanks again,
Tenacious D

Cut the Crap: Novus Ordo Nuns are Going Extinct Because Most of Them Are Revolting, Hideous Dykes

Look at these women.

LOOK. AT. THEM.

They’re all a bunch of dykes.  Who in their right mind, or even NOT in their right mind, would want to join up with a bunch of miserable old female Diabolical Narcissist sex perverts?  The one on the far right I would argue is flirting with transvestitism.  As in trying to be a “drag king”.

I think there has been an unspoken prohibition against speaking about this, because these “nuns” and “sisters” are still, to this day, riding the coattails of nuns and sisters from before the Asteroid, enjoying the deference rightly given to women who chose to be espoused to Christ, and lived lives of prayer and service.

That is not what these dyke witches are.  These are arch-heretics and many of them are full-blown apostates, so mired in their sexual perversion that they hate Our Lord because He incarnated as a man.  These hideous, repellant train wrecks tout the need to “move BEYOND Jesus” into their neo-pagan religion, which has nothing – NOTHING – to do with Catholicism.  Just read this piece, the introduction to which I will blockquote:

It may take time, but it’s hard for a Catholic educator to publicly praise the work of nuns who have bravely leapt “beyond Jesus” without drawing some flack – especially in the Internet age. During this era of crisis and decline, some Catholic religious orders have chosen to enter a time of “sojourning” that involves “moving beyond the church, even beyond Jesus,” Sinsinawa Dominican Sister Laurie Brink told a 2007 national gathering of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious.

“Religious titles, institutional limitations, ecclesiastical authorities no longer fit this congregation, which in most respects is Post-Christian,” added Brink, a former journalist who is a biblical studies professor at Chicago’s Catholic Theological Union. For these women, the “Jesus narrative is not the only or the most important narrative. … They still hold up and reverence the values of the Gospel, but they also recognize that these same values are not solely the property of Christianity. Buddhism, Native American spirituality, Judaism, Islam and others hold similar tenets for right behavior within the community, right relationship with the earth and right relationship with the Divine.”

They cut their hair like men, wear clothes like men, comport and carry themselves like men, all the while condemning the very masculinity that they so pathetically ape.  It is a species of self-mutilation, certainly more subtle than what we are seeing today in terms of people literally cutting themselves to shreds in order to masquerade as the opposite sex, but rest assured that these psychos would have gone full “trans” had the technology and culture permitted for it forty years ago.  Because they are insane. Morally, spiritually, psycho-sexually insane.

They want to be a new “elite third gender” which dominates and is universally acknowledged as superior to the other two, definied by its hatred for both authentic masculinity and authentic femininity.  Just as male sodomites believe themselves to be an elite caste, so too do female sodomites.

Stop dancing around the obvious truth.  These witch nuns are dying out because they are a bunch of revolting dykes, and no one wants anything to do with them.  This ain’t rocket surgery, folks.  Just say it.  To their ugly faces.  Sex perverts are by definition “barren” and thus have to resort to vampirism to perpetuate themselves.  In the case of the dyke nuns, they are so revolting that there is nothing they can do to entice even the most perverted and diabolically narcissistic young women.  The Novus Ordo priesthood is dying the same death, but at a slower rate because male sodomites can be enticed to join up by the promise of available sodomy partners and access to young men and lads to prey upon.  Old dykes aren’t nearly as interested in genital acts as the faggots are, hence the filthy witches really have nothing – NOTHING – to offer other than the total desolation of narcissism, self-loathing, and hatred of God.

I’d like to end on a positive note.  The average age of Novus Ordo nuns in the U.S. is now in the LATE SEVENTIES.  Thanks be to God, less than twenty years to go.  Then, all that will be left will be rapidly growing convents, monasteries and abbeys like this…

 

Starting Wednesday Off Right: Stand up, pick up your mat and walk 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.

Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo, Christ at the Pool of Bethesda, ARSH 1780

Today is the feast of the Archangel Raphael, who is known as the “angelical physician”, not only for his healing works in the Book of Tobias, but also for his deeds as recounted in John chapter 5, one of the most moving narratives in scripture.  It was St. Raphael the Archangel who would agitate the waters once per year at Bethesda which would then heal the first person to touch the waters.  In John 5, even though St. John is spare in his prose, one can immediately hear the anguish of the man who tells Our Lord that he has tried every year for thirty-eight years to be healed of his infirmity, but because he has no one to help him, he never makes it to the pool in time.  And yet, this man has kept the faith and persevered.

Our Blessed Lord healed the man, and afterward, finding the man at the Temple, Jesus told him, “Behold thou art made whole: sin no more, lest some worse thing happen to thee.”

Mercy is inextricably tied to renunciation of sin. The “worse thing” that would come from presuming upon God’s Mercy and NOT ceasing the sinful activity (or at least having a firm, immediate purpose of amendment) is ETERNAL DAMNATION.  Thirty-eight years with a horrific physical infirmity is NOTHING compared to all of eternity in hell in unceasing torment, never, ever to see God, and knowing how being damned was 100% one’s own choice, and thus completely unnecessary.

None of us have to wait for St. Raphael to swoop in as depicted above (wheeeee!), and then win a foot race.  All we have to do is enter The Church and go to Confession, wherein the waters of Baptism are perpetually and inexhaustibly available, and the Blood of Christ removes every stain of sin.

Then, we must do what Our Lord commanded the cripple that He healed:

  1.  STAND UP – Stop committing the sin.  Do not, after being healed, think you can lie there and continue to wallow in your sin.
  2. PICK UP YOUR MAT – Do penance and make satisfaction for your sins.
  3. WALK – Advance in the good, always moving towards greater sanctity.

St. Raphael, pray for us.

Christ, have mercy on us.

 

Mis-lived Lives and Un-manned Men

“Is not ours an age of mis-lived lives, of un-manned men?

Why?

Because Jesus Christ has disappeared. Wherever the people are true Christians, there are men to be found in large numbers, but everywhere and always, if Christianity wilts, the men wilt. Look closely, they are no longer men but shadows of men. Thus what do you hear on all sides today? The world is dwindling away, for lack of men; the nations are perishing for scarcity of men, for the rareness of men. I do believe: there are no men where there is no character; there is no character where there are no principles, doctrines, stands taken; there are no stands taken, no doctrines, no principles, where there is no religious faith and consequently no religion of society.

Do what you will: only from God you will get men.”

Cardinal Pie, ARSH 1815-1880

 

“Love is like ballistics…,” said the Saint

“Love is the most necessary of all virtues. Love in the person who preaches the word of God is like fire in a musket. If a person were to throw a bullet with his hands, he would hardly make a dent in anything; but if the person takes the same bullet and ignites some gunpowder behind it, it can kill. It is much the same with the word of God. If it is spoken by someone who is filled with the fire of charity- the fire of love of God and neighbor- it will work wonders.”
St. Anthony Mary Claret

 

 

 

Q&A: Ann, what do the sodomites want? What is their endgame?

The person on the far right, with a mustache, is a woman who has mutilated her body with surgeries and hormones in order to masquerade as a male. The woman on the far left masquerades as the woman’s “wife”.

I get variants on this question quite a lot.

Q:  What do the sodomites want?  What is their endgame?  They already have their “faux-marriage”, they are clearly a de facto protected “victim class”.  They carry on openly with not only no pushback or protest, but are actively praised for their depravity.  What is their endgame?

A:  They want nothing less than the entire world to declare that GOD IS WRONG, AND THEY ARE RIGHT.  And if God is “wrong” then God is not God, and the sodomites are actually superior to God, and have been victims of an inferior being all this time.

I would point out a fascinating bit of exegesis that I saw within the past year or two, but can’t now find, regarding the events of Genesis Chapter 19 – Sodom and Gomorrah.

When the two angels had entered into Lot’s house, and “the men of the city beset the house both young and old, all the people together” (verse 4), the point of the gathering wasn’t primarily gang rape.  Think about it.  Sodom was a city of non-trivial size.  That mob didn’t show up with the expectation of every man in the city being able to rape the two men lodging in Lot’s house.  They were probably hoping for the two lodgers to be brought out, and perhaps instigating an orgy among them.

To see what their primary motive was, look at verse 9:

But they said: Get thee back thither. And again: Thou camest in, said they, as a stranger, was it to be a judge? therefore we will afflict thee more than them.

The mob of Sodom arrived at Lot’s house in order to demand that both Lot and his two guests RATIFY THE SODOMITES’ SEXUAL PERVERSION. They were there to demand ideological conformity, preferably by PARTICIPATION in perverse genital acts.  Remember the 4-step progression of what evil demands: Toleration, Acceptance, Ratification, Participation.

Look at the words they use… WAS IT TO BE A JUDGE?

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.

So, the objective of all sodomites, and especially of the vile wretches that have infiltrated The Church, and are now swiftly erecting their Antichurch with the objective of replacing the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church is, as I have said for years now, rooted in a hatred of God Himself.  They seek nothing less than demanding that all Catholics, and eventually all people, under the fraudulent obedience they so desperately want to convince the Church is due to the faggot Antipope Bergoglio, to cry out, “God is wrong and has been wrong all along, and you (the sodomites) are right, and have been right all along!” In doing this, they think that they will be dethroning God, and enthroning “enlightened man”, and then eventually “the great illuminator” himself, satan.

Let no man deceive you by any means, for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, who opposeth, and is lifted up above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself as if he were God.
2 Thessalonians 2: 3-4
