The New Tiananmen

15 year old Polish lad blocks a sodomite parade.

Think “Tank Man”, but with the power of the Cross of Christ.

Tank Man was dead within hours. Don’t be surprised if this lad is taken from his parents and attempts are made to “re-educate” him. Poland isn’t the Catholic paradise it is made out to be. Polish birthrates are 1.32, which tells you all you need to know about their sexual morality.

Ranger Doug Sings, “Virgen Maria, Porque Tu Llores?”

Over the transom from a reader after seeing the Riders in the Sky “Cattle Call” post.

VIRGEN MARIA (WHY ARE YOU WEEPING?)

While the villagers are sleeping
In their dusty desert town
You can hear a young girl weeping
In a stable tumble down.

While they sleep their sleep unknowing
She weeps so gently through the night,
Lit so softly by the glowing
Of a lantern’s flickering light.

Virgen Maria, porque tu llores?
El mundo duerme in tranquilidad.
Virgen Maria, lloraba con feliz:
Es la mañana de la Navidad.

Oh Mary, Mary, why are you weeping?
They’re tears of joy upon the birth
Of the Promise God is keeping
To bring mankind His peace on earth.

Saturday Jukebox by Request: Cattle Call

I’ll be humming this ear worm for a fortnight.

So… join me, won’t you?

Eddie Arnold originated “Cattle Call”, but, it must be confessed that when The Riders cover, much less with Ranger Doug, Idol of American Youth on lead yodel, the definitive version is re-established.

For all my cattlemen. God bless you and keep you, and banish all parasites and infectamenta from your pastures and pens.


The cattle are prowlin’

The coyotes are howlin’

Way out where the doggies roam.

Where spurs are a jinglin’

And the cowboy is singin’

His lonesome cattle call….

He rides in the sun,

‘Til his day’s work is done.

And rounds up the cattle each fall.

Singin’ his cattle call….

For hours he would ride.

On the range far and wide.

When the night wind blows up and slow.

His heart is a feather.

In all kinds of weather.

He sings his cattle call….

Evviva San Lorenzo.

Gian Lorenzo Bernini completed this marble sculpture of The Martyrdom of Saint Lawrence in ARSH 1614 when Bernini was FIFTEEN YEARS OLD. Since ARSH 1998 it has been one of the relatively few sculptures housed in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy.

St. Lawrence is one of the most influential and widely-beloved saints of the early Church. He was roasted alive on a brazier (grill). We need his intercession now perhaps more than ever.

St. Lawrence died joyfully proclaiming his faith. He prayed for the conversion of the city of Rome and the world.”

He prayed for the conversion of the city of Rome….

Saint Lawrence, Deacon and Martyr, pray for us. Pray for the conversion/reversion of Rome.

Bernini was fifteen.

FIFTEEN. As in five times three.

Fifteen YEARS. Not decades.

15.

Since LOTS of people have asked: The “Siri Thesis” – NO, I don’t believe it is true.

The “Siri Thesis” is the conjecture that Cardinal Giuseppe Siri, the relatively orthodox Cardinal Archbishop of Genoa, Italy, was actually elected the Pope in the Conclave of ARSH 1958 after the death of Pope Pius XII, and thus remained the “hidden Pope” until his death in ARSH 1989.

I DO NOT believe this happened – but I do think that it is possible that Cardinal Siri won a ballot in the conclave of ARSH 1958, AND DECLINED TO ACCEPT THE PAPACY.

As we have covered in this space before in a guest post by Mr. Mark Docherty, the Papacy is bestowed upon a man, elected by the College of Cardinals, SOLELY AND DIRECTLY BY CHRIST WITHOUT INTERMEDIARY when and ONLY WHEN the man ASSENTS.  The Papacy is NOT bestowed upon a man by the College of Cardinals, nor even by the Church Herself.  So, even if a man wins a ballot, if he declines – FOR WHATEVER REASON, EVEN COERCION – Christ DOES NOT AND WILL NOT force-bestow the Papacy on anyone, ever. Makes total sense, right? God is a Gentleman, AND the best Human Resources Manager ever. For Christ to bestow the Papacy on a man who does not assent – FOR ANY REASON – would yield chaotic madness.  Chaos is of the devil.  Order and rationality are of God.

Cardinal Siri was an orthodox prelate – as it turns out, one of the last – and he never, ever gave ANY public indication of any kind that he was the Pope.  Consider for a moment what it would mean, both about Cardinal Siri’s personal character and morality AND about the VISIBILITY of the Church, which includes AT HER EARTHLY HEAD, if Cardinal Siri had, until his dying breath, engaged in a massive deception, resulting in multiple Antipapacies AND a vacant See after his death in ARSH 1989.  Sorry, but it is a terrible insult to Cardinal Siri to think that he would have done such a thing. Such a deception would be intrinsically wicked, devoid of ANY pastoral concern for the faithful.

So what about Pope Benedict Ratzinger?  Isn’t this situation very similar?  NO.  IT IS NOT SIMILAR AT ALL.

Pope Benedict XVI is in SUBSTANTIAL ERROR about the canonical validity of his attempted partial abdication in February of ARSH 2013.  He apparently mistakenly thinks that what he did was “in bounds”, and even in the best interests of the Church.  Yeah – I know.  I’m shaking my head, too.  Hey, he has earned the title “worst Pope ever” fair and square.

Furthermore, Pope Benedict XVI has remained TOTALLY VISIBLE AS THE POPE, retaining the dress, title, style (His Holiness), residence inside the Vatican, and even still gives the Apostolic Blessing specifically using the possessive pronoun “MY” – “My Apostolic Blessing”.

This is “God writing straight with crooked lines” in making sure that even in Pope Benedict’s ERROR, he is still, quite stunningly, VISIBLE TO ALL THE WORLD AS THE POPE.  Pope Benedict XVI asked Cardinal Brandmuller in a letter a couple of years ago, “What would you have me do differently?” with regards to his post-February ARSH 2013 actions.  The answer, IF Pope Benedict’s resignation had actually been VALID, is EVERYTHING.  ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING.  Pope Benedict has done EVERYTHING exactly the OPPOSITE of ALL past precedent regarding valid Papal resignations. This is nothing less than the Divine Providence lighting this circus up like the Las Vegas Strip.

The Divine Providence, in His Goodness and Perfection, would have it no other way, since VISIBILITY of the Church, including at her earthly head, is the synthesis of the Four Marks of the Church – One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic. God LOVES us.  God isn’t a ginormous jerk who is trying to trick us and give us the shake.  Quite the opposite.  He is “bending over backwards” in this totally bizarre and unprecedented situation to not just leave a trail of breadcrumbs, but to illuminate the trail with the Light of His Truth and Goodness.

I never cease to be amazed by the POWER of the Divine Providence.  God does WHAT He wants, WHEN He wants, WITH WHOM He wants – while always respecting the free will of every human being, which is the absolute mind-blower. We know intellectually what the word “omnipotent” means, but… whoa.  When you see it manifest, it rocks you.

So, bottom line, no, absolutely not, I do not believe that Cardinal Siri was ever Pope, although I think it possible that he could have won a ballot and declined, even possibly under nefarious pressure. Winning a ballot does NOT make a man the Pope.  ASSENTING makes a man the Pope, with the Office bestowed DIRECTLY and without INTERMEDIARY by Jesus Christ Himself.  To argue that Our Lord would bestow the papacy upon a man saying “NO!” for any reason is essentially to deny that man has free will, and assert that God Himself is an irrational, loveless bully (sounds kinda like “allah”, doesn’t it?)

Pray for Pope Benedict, still reigning, and for the Papacy, and for Holy Mother Church, spotless, indefectible, immutable and VISIBLE. Don’t forget to enjoin St. Michael the Archangel, protector of the Petrine Office AND guardian angel of the Sovereign Pontiff!

I hope this helps!


Here is the closing of the ARSH 2017 letter from Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger to Cardinal Brandmuller that leaked last year.

“Let us pray, as you did at the end of your letter, that the Lord comes to the rescue of His Church. I bless with my apostolic blessing,

Yours,

Benedict XVI”

Mit meinem apostolischen Segen bin eich….

Q&A: What is causing these mass gun/knife attacks?

ANSWER:

1.) DEMONIC OPPRESSION (not possession – the humans are fully on board with the demonic, know exactly what they are doing, and are fully culpable)

2.) PRESCRIPTION PHARMACEUTICALS (specifically anti-depressants, anti-anxiety and anti-psychotic drugs, which ALL facilitate item #1)

It’s not rocket surgery, people.

I’ve been warning about this for years.  It’s going to get to the point that these attacks will be a DAILY OR MULTIPLE PER DAY OCCURRENCE, EVERY DAY.  The demons that were largely driven out of the North American landmass with the conversion of the Indians and the consecration of the landmass to the Blessed Virgin in the 16th Century are back, because of two primary factors: ABORTION AND SODOMY.  What is happening now before our eyes is simply a reversion to the demonic, pagan, hyper violent state of concupicent man in a land that has consciously rejected God.  It will eventually be the Aztec/Maya/Inca human sacrifice culture, plus the French Revolution, plus the inner city black hip-hop gang culture, raised to the power of Hollywood.

Stay confessed.

St. John Marie Vianney – A Compendium of Quotes

The saints had no hatred, no bitterness; they forgive everything and think they deserve much more for their offenses against God.

Shall we all be saved? Shall we go to Heaven? Alas, my children, we do not know at all! But I tremble when I see so many souls lost these days. See, they fall into Hell as leaves fall from the trees at the approach of winter.

Do not try to please everybody. Try to please God, the angels, and the saints – they are your public.

Those who go often to Mass during the week, do their work very much better than those who, for want of faith, think they have no time for it.

God commands you to pray, but forbids you to worry.

A priest goes to Heaven or a priest goes to Hell with a thousand people behind.

We put pride into everything like salt. We like to see that our good works are known. If our virtues are seen, we are pleased; if our faults are perceived, we are sad. I remark that in a great many people; if one says anything to them, it disturbs them, it annoys them. The saints were not like that – they were vexed if their virtues were known, and pleased that their imperfections should be seen.

The Lord is more anxious to forgive our sins than a woman is to carry her baby out of a burning building.

My little children, your hearts, are small, but prayer stretches them and makes them capable of loving God. Through prayer we receive a foretaste of heaven and something of paradise comes down upon us. Prayer never leaves us without sweetness. It is honey that flows into the souls and makes all things sweet. When we pray properly, sorrows disappear like snow before the sun.

How happy is that guardian angel who accompanies a soul to Holy Mass!

See, my children, a person who is in a state of sin is always sad. Whatever he does, he is weary and disgusted with every thing; while he who is at peace with God is always happy, always joyous. . . Oh, beautiful life! Oh, beautiful death!

I thought a time would come when people would rout me out of Ars with sticks, when the Bishop would suspend me, and I should end my days in prison. I see, however, that I am not worthy of such a grace.

Securities and Exchange Commission grants Jon Corzine approval to run a hedge fund; Ann Barnhardt happily celebrates day 2821 of telling the financial industry to go violate the 6th Commandment with itself.

Financial Industry enthusiastically complies.

Anyone who gets anywhere near this deserves whatever chainsaw-based lovin’ Corzine delivers.

I have to chuckle at the petition from the National Futures Association that was circulated to generate cold-call leads, ahem, I mean “protest” this. Folks, the National Futures Association is running at a corruption level in the same ballpark as the Roman Curia. It’s is a bunch of full-blown psychopath climbers surrounded with functionally retarded, dead-eyed affirmative action hires.

Yep. Just like the Vatican.

When I watch this, all I can think is, “Why haven’t the Chinese invaded yet?” UPDATE from eyewitness

Ann,

Just wanted to let you know that my wife and I were actually staying at the Westin Peachtree Plaza this past weekend when the DSA was having their convention.

We were there in ATL for a wedding, and were appalled by the freak show that this group of people actually are. Every fag, lesbian, leftard and oddball was there spouting their communist booshwa. They smelled, they were disgusting in dress and looks, with piercings, tats, and multi hued hair-when they had not shaved half of it off, and obnoxiously loud and rude. They tied up the elevators, of which there were 8, so much with their coming and going that we routinely had to wait 20 minutes for one. I literally had to bribe my way onto the service elevator to get to the lobby in order to leave for the wedding Saturday afternoon.

If this is an example of the people who want to run the country, then we are in serious trouble, more so than one would think. The only upside is that if this group is representative of those whom we will have to engage in a conflict, I have no worries as to the outcome, as the men are routinely fat or alternatively metrosexual, and there is no way that they would be able to engage in extended combat ops without serious dedication and training. I personally can’t see them doing so. [This is why I have to think that the Chinese are watching the psycho-socio-political demography VERY closely. At some point, as the North American culture more fully degrades into this, the Chinese will realize and then act on the fact that IF they invade, there will be little to no actual resistance, as the population is effectively self-neutralized. -AB]

Any way, just thought you’d want some perspective from someone who was actually there and observed the freak show at first hand. Feel free to publish this but please delete the name if you do so.

Sincerely,

X
