Mailbag: Letter from a Theology Masters Student

Dear Ann,

I actually came across your website a few years ago and I very enjoyed it then and came across it today as I was reading a comment you made somewhere regarding Tobin and the Italian actor. I chuckled at your clear wit and then I realized it was you and watched (for over two hours despite having to write an essay today that I’m on deadline for) and was glad that I did. Finally, the pieces began to come together and I started to feel whole again. I have begun a masters program in Theology and was becoming more and more upset by the awareness of these so-called “new canon lawyers” and their heretical takes on Church teaching.

Finally, your words have opened my heart to healing and restoration in Christ and can see Providence at work. Thank you for your courage. Thank you for the stay-puttednessand doing one more video. My gut meter is not wrong. You must be correct with the realization that Pope Benedict XVI is still Pope. How appreciative I was that you went through, laboriously, each important point as you did. I have learned a great deal today and am extremely grateful. I will pray also for you.

Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam,


Big Things Are Happening!

Within hours of my mentioning in a post that I would like to eventually transcribe “The Bergoglian Antipapacy” video, a professional transcriptionist emailed and has already fully transcribed 34 minutes of the video.  What this will permit is the translating into French, Spanish and Italian so that all of the  good folks in those countries can have access.

I looked at the auto-generated YouTube captions in English (click on the little gear icon in the lower right of the window to turn on captions), and I have to say that the captions are more than 95% accurate.  The only flubs are on constructed words such as “Bergoglian” that the algorithms simply can’t make sense of yet.  This also proves another point that I have made about smartphones today.  I used the AMBIENT microphone on my phone to record the video. We tried using the mic on my earbuds, but the ambient mic’s quality was far better. The YouTube captions are 95% accurate.  This is why you NEVER, EVER take your phone into the confessional, and why it is NOT unreasonable to ask Father if he has a smartphone in the confessional, and if so, to please remove it.  The quality of the ambient microphone, coupled with the accuracy of transcription algorithms is STUNNING.

SuperNerd sent me this GIF, and I laughed for 30 minutes straight.  I think this is what the good trascriptionist must look like right about now…

Wherein Ann Turns the Other Cheek

I have the full letter, with the name and parish of the priest, which I won’t print here because I don’t want any nastiness.  But I know there are quite a few of you out there who know Father, and I would ask you to pass this along to him:

Father, you are mistaken, and I can understand how that is possible.  Remember, St. Vincent Ferrer was mistaken and backed an antipope for a time – and was so holy that he continued to perform miracles even while he was commemorating the wrong man at the Te Igitur.  You yourself perform a miracle every time you consecrate the Host and Chalice, or raise the dead to life in the confessional.

I also understand better than you can imagine how you must be frightened for the future of the Ecclesia Dei communities and Masses.  Believe me.  I know.

If you ever want to apologize for publicly painting me, and those who have come to the same conclusion that I have, as “bordering on insanity” – a truly grave accusation: to say that I am isolated and alone in the universe, being cut off from reality and rationality, and thus from God Himself Who IS Reality and Who IS Rationality – you will be forgiven faster than the time it takes for the email to traverse the internet.

Be assured of my prayers,

Ann Barnhardt

Barnhardt Podcast #067: A Thanksgiving Smorgasbord

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss a little bit of everything from Thanksgiving sports observances in the United States and Canada, thanksgiving as an essential element of prayer, the best way to pray for the souls in Purgatory (spoiler: “just doing it” is the best), a correction about the layout of US Air Force bases, kombucha and keyboards, a very nerdy tangent (and tangent from a tangent) by SuperNerd — and we even discussed our main topic of tribalism and how it applies to the situation with the papacy.

New Barnhardt Video Presentation: The Bergoglian Antipapacy

(High Definition version will be available soon. See dedicated Top Menu page “Bergoglian Antipapacy” above.  More links and citations to come as the page is constructed.)


0:00 Intro and acknowledgments
01:42 Why make this video?
03:25 If anything in this presentation is illogical, irrational or detached from reality, let me know
05:03 THE False Premise: Jorge Mario Bergoglio is not now and never has been the Pope.
06:48 WHY isn’t Bergoglio the Pope?  What happened?
08:16 The principle of Reversion to the Status Quo
11:37 Canon 188 – the text of the law
16:09 The plain sense of the law is the last line of defense against tyranny
18:04 SUBSTANTIAL ERROR: the key criterion
19:51 Pope Benedict XVI in his own words: “Always and forever…I remain in the enclosure of St. Peter.”
23:24 Essential precision: Pope Benedict’s mind is NOT the arbiter of reality, nor does his substantial error change the ontological reality of his status as Pope.
25:47 We know from logic that a Pope can commit substantial error in the context of an attempted resignation and still retain his office
27:18 Archbishop Georg Ganswein’s approved remarks from 20 May ARSH 2016 in his address at the Gregorianum in Rome
35:02 There cannot be a “Pope Emeritus”.  Either a man occupied the Petrine See, or he does not.
36:37 Yes, Popes absolutely CAN resign.  The issue here is the VALIDITY of the attempted partial resignation in February ARSH 2013
37:44 +Ganswein. Who is this omnipresent guy that is playing both sides?
38:35 STUPID TROPE ALERT: “But both Pope Benedict and +Ganswein are sub-verbal and don’t understand the words they are saying!”
40:10 The most intelligent people (and angels) make the biggest mistakes
41:13 The second invalidating criterion: FEAR
43:00 Just vs. Unjust Fear
45:28 Never underestimate the viciousness and violence of the sodomite.
46:32 Satanism is real and its global nexus today is inside the Vatican
48:41 Archbishop Viganò is in hiding for fear of his life.
49:03 The Southern Italian Mafia: longtime mercenaries of the Freemasons and sodomites
50:26 Fear of blackmail by the sodomite mafia using PAID false witnesses
53:05 “Pray for me, that I may not FLEE for FEAR of the WOLVES.”
54:22 STUPID TROPE ALERT: “The fact that Pope Benedict resigned is proof that he wasn’t coerced!”
55:57 MASSIVE BODY OF VISUAL EVIDENCE, the conscious retention of visible signs of the Papacy by Pope Benedict XVI after 28 February ARSH 2013
01:02:50 Prophecies: Apostasy from the Top
01:05:17 Pope Benedict XVI, worst Pope ever, notorious for quitting.  The 300 page dossier on the sodomite/satanist infiltration of the Church, delivered to him on 11 December ARSH 2012
01:07:15 Pope Benedict’s warped metaphysics of “meaning”, not “being”
01:08:26 Pope Celestine V in the mind of Pope Benedict XVI
01:09:12 Pope Benedict’s mind is NOT the source nor arbiter of reality.  He needs to be told this, not asked.
01:09:54 VALID YET ILLICIT – an essential precision
01:11:11 What anyone WANTS is not germane to the question. Binary objective reality.
01:13:35 Charity should immediately cause us to ask, “Holy Father, what did they do to you?”
01:14:55 What if Pope Benedict VALIDLY resigned tomorrow? It would confirm that the February ARSH 2013 attempt was invalid
01:16:58 STUPID TROPE ALERT “We can’t know who the Pope really is, and it doesn’t matter anyway!”
01:18:09 Why won’t people even discuss this? EFFEMICACY and SLOTH
01:25:20 The Sedevacantism Red Herring
01:30:00 “But what if Pope Benedict dies…?” Binary Objective Reality.
01:31:58 “What is Bergoglio dies or goes away somehow?” Any “conclave” called while Pope Benedict is still alive and occupies the See will be invalid, just as the March ARSH 2013 conclave was invalid
01:33:27 We MUST get thi 100% right.  Half-right won’t cut it. The Parable of the seven demons.
01:35:00 Jorge Bergoglio
01:36:33 Electioneering of ARSH 2013 “conclave” is completely irrelevant because THERE WAS NO CONCALVE IN ARSH 2013.  The only relevance the faux-concalve of ARSH 2013 served was to expose the corruption and criminality in the College of Cardinals and Curia
01:38:43 Jorge Bergoglio: arch-heretic.  Informative but not germane to Bergoglio’s status as antipope. Only a confirming corollary.
01:40:35 STUPID TROPE ALERT “There have been heretic Popes before!”
01:44:17 Ann misspeaks – John the XXII, not John XXIII
01:44:34 Bellarmine and Suarez believed that the Petrine Promise precluded a heretic or man who had lost the Catholic faith to be the Pope.
01:46:27 Having faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ and His promises is being viciously attacked on a daily basis by “conservative” and even “Trad Catholic” “thought leaders” as “papolatry”.  The only way to hold the false premise that Bergoglio is the Pope is to ruthlessly attack the Papacy, and thus the Virtue of Faith itself.
01:48:20 Papolatry has NOTHING to do with the global cult of Bergoglio.  It is 100% ideological tribalism driven by the fact that Antipope Bergoglio RATIFIED PEOPLE IN THEIR SINS AND APOSTASY
01:52:07 Attributes and characteristics of the False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist
01:53:30 MORE visible confirmations that Bergoglio is not now and never has been the Pope
01:57:07 STUPID TROPE ALERT: “Papal Infallibility only applies to those things the Pope says that are true!”
01:58:05 It is precisely the AUTHENTIC authority of the Papacy that will be needed to fix this mess – and everyday “conservative” and “Trad” Catholic “thought leaders” attack the Papacy in order to continue to hold their false premise that Bergoglio is the Pope.
02:00:10 The concept of “Popular Acceptance”is NOT in play because the See was never vacant in ARSH 2013.  The Mob/Vox Populi can not change ontological reality.
02:03:15 STUPID TROPE ALERT: “We believe that Novus Ordoism is a completely different religion to whose authority we MUST SUBMIT!”
02:04:42 The mystery of how “even the Elect would be deceived…” We are living it. Right now. The Elect are being deceived.
02:09:32 The greatest act of violence against the Papacy is to call a man who is not Peter, “Peter”.
02:10:12 Antipope Bergoglio has ZERO AUTHORITY.  What will you do, Father, is Antipope Bergoglio tries to abrogate the Mass of the Ages?
02:12:21 What to do? Speak up. Man up. Defend Pope Benedict! Fast and pray – Matthew 17:20 Initiative
02:13:45 Deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ. “Jesus, I know that you love me.”
02:14:57 Conclusion. Please mirror, copy and spread this video. Closing prayer.

Momentum Continues to Build: LifeSite News Covers Msgr. Bux’s Call for Inquiry Into Validity of Pope Benedict’s Attempted Partial Abdication

Edward Pentin’s personal blog seems to be blocked by Google and Google’s browser, Chrome. Imagine that.

LifeSite News has published Pentin’s reportage of respected Vatican theologian and liturgist Msgr. Nicola Bux’s call for an investigation into the validity of Pope Benedict’s attempted partial abdication HERE.

Hopefully this gets picked up by the AP or Reuters. Breitbart almost certainly won’t report on it because Breitbart’s “Rome correspondent” is the uber-scandalous sacrilegious fornicator and student predator, ex-Father Thomas Williams (Legionaries of Christ) who is fully on-board with the Bergoglio mafia and, I have been told, has serious aspirations to being rehabilitated to the priesthood and made a Curial bishop by Antipope Bergoglio – a model of the “new, modern, married FrancisAntiChurch priest/bishop.”

Remember, it was Steve Bannon who hired the psychopath priest, Thomas Williams into the Breitbart organization when Fr. Williams was desperately scrambling to abandon his priesthood in order to avoid having the dossier on his affairs, illegitimate child, and most especially his countless sexual affairs and trysts with HIS STUDENTS at the Pontifical Legion of Christ Sex Cult University in Rome of which he was the dean of MORAL THEOLOGY, exposed. Williams also needed a pay package that would allow him to maintain the decadent lifestyle to which he and his gutter slag baby-mama Liz Lev were so very, very accustomed to as the top-dog and top-bitch in the Rome Legion of Christ/Zenit/Vatican Museums $30 billion mafia. These kind, they congeal together, like scum floating atop dirty dishwater.

But bravo to John-Henry Westen and the Jalsevacs for picking up the story over at LifeSite.

The Mark of Visibility of the Church and Its Earthly Head Proceeds from the Justice of Christ

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is not a jerk.

I think many people either have lost sight of this, or never really grasped it in the first place.

It’s one of those things that having an authentic personal relationship with Jesus Christ makes clear.

What is so striking, and frankly awesome in the sense of the power of God to make manifest whatever He wills, is the unfailing VISIBILITY of both Pope Benedict through all of this nightmare, and of Antipope Bergoglio qua antipope. The “antipope-ness” of Bergoglio is indeed “most evident”, and it is so by the Divine Justice.

But this little tweet by the Veri Catholici account puts it beautifully:

It’s All Happening: PJMedia Picks Up the Invalid Resignation Story. God bless Msgr. Nicola Bux for Speaking Out Manfully

The PJMedia piece goes into greater depth than Edward Pentin’s piece.

And they’re getting it right: the key is the SUBSTANTIAL ERROR clause in Canon 188 as applied to Pope Benedict’s intent to “fundamentally transform” the papacy into a “collegial, synodal” office, consisting of both “contemplative and active” members.

Nope. The Papacy cannot be bifurcated nor transformed, even by the Pope himself. Thus the attempted partial faux-abdication was invalid, and the situation reverted to the status quo: Pope Benedict XVI reigning. And so has it remained since.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio is not now and never has been the Pope.

The truth WILL out.

Have faith in Our Lord and His promises.

Pray for Pope Benedict XVI, the one and only living Pope, whether he likes it or not.

More to come….
