Start from the base premise that God is infinite Good and infinite Love, and that the Divine Providence is perfect…
And then ask yourself if maybe, just maybe, the reason that the technological capability of the human race has exploded on an exponential curve that began at almost the exact instant that Pope Leo XIII heard the conversation between Christ and satan in ARSH 1884, and satan’s intention to attempt to destroy the Church, is precisely so that the entire human race could SEE and RECOGNIZE the ascendancy and installation of Antipope Bergoglio, and thus be able to discern the vocem alienorum – the voice of a stranger.
Could it be that these baby televisions that we all carry on our persons that give us instantaneous access to every syllable of heresy and blasphemy that Antipope Bergoglio spews translated into our myriad respective mother tongues is… the Divine Providence making sure that the True Church and the true Pope (Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger) remain visible, and satan unable to operate covertly?
Again, the base premise: God is infinitely good, loves His Holy Church and every human being infinitely, is omniscient, omnipotent, and His Providence is perfect.
I’m just going to leave this little point to ponder here. Please, discuss amongst yourselves.
In this shorter episode we discuss silence, the idea of fasting from information intake, and the negative consequences that can arise from consuming too much audio (and/or video) content and the compounding factor of listening at accelerated speeds (1.5x or faster). We also talked about the one year anniversary of Saint Tiny Princess entering into eternity — and that she’s now also a big sister (which is a big reason for the delay in recording and publishing this episode)! And lastly, we briefly discussed with a bit of glee that Disney is going to lose a LOT of money on the final installment of the Skywalker saga — the Ruse of Soy-woker — and that Star Wars long ago stopped making sense from a logical storytelling perspective.

At the request of the Pope (sic), the Pontifical Biblical Commission, the highest technical ecclesial organism in interpretation of the Holy Scriptures, has issued a report on the anthropological vision in the Bible in which the conception of homosexuality is radically revised.
“A new and more adequate understanding of the human person imposes a radical reservation on the exclusive valuation of the heterosexual union in favor of an analogous reception of homosexuality and homosexual unions,” can be read in the study commissioned by His Holiness (sic) to Pontifical Biblical Commission on the anthropological vision of the Bible, which includes extensive attention to the issue of homosexuality, whose expression conceives as “a legitimate and dignified expression of the human being.
So, we now have Antipope Bergoglio literally ratifying sodomy and denouncing the entire Natural and Divine Law as giant mistakes, literally establishing his own “new law” and “new religion.”
So, what can we now expect?
-More condescending essays by Trad Inc. partisans explaining how this is all TOTALLY in-bounds with regards to the Petrine Promise, and how this has all TOTALLY happened before and you’re all just stupid and un-ed-ju-ma-cated….
-More silence as people follow the logical progression that naturally flows from the false base premise that “Francis” is or ever was the Pope and voluntarily fall into:
-Schism (specifically to the Eastern Orthodox), and
-Freemasonry (the Papacy is a meaningless and even harmful institution that must be demythologized and reduced to total irrelevancy and anyone who actually believes in the words of Our Lord in the Holy Gospels about the Papacy is an “ultramontanist” infant).
-More categorical refusal to so much as even ask the question if anything ODD or SUSPICIOUS or CRIMINAL immediately preceded the ascendancy of Bergoglio.
-More gaslighting. More name calling. More slander. More calumny.
-More profiteering and grift.
-More categorical refusal to engage the publicly visible dataset.
-More proud and intransigent violation of the Law of Non-contradiction, holding that standard of Unity is simultaneously the vector of schism, and that Jesus Christ is a lying, faithless oathbreaker who has put His Church on earth into a damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don’t Catch-22, thus denying the Divinity of Christ, and thus denying the totality of Salvation History.
In other words, more circus level contortions to avoid one simple thing:
Re-assessing the base premise that Bergoglio is or ever has been the Roman Pontiff.
It is VISIBLY OBVIOUS that Pope Benedict’s attempted partial resignation was canonically invalid.
It is VISIBLY OBVIOUS that Pope Benedict is the one and only living Pope.
It is VISIBLY OBVIOUS that Bergoglio has absolutely no participation in the Papacy and its attendant graces and supernatural negative protection, and never has.
Pray for Pope Benedict XVI, the one and only living Pope whether he likes it or not, the Papacy, and Holy Mother Church.
Video just in of Trad Inc. and Neo-Catholic “conservative” partisans preparing their next “Francis is definitely Pope, shut up Stupid!” contortion routines:
In a message exchange yesterday, I was directed to Ecclesiastes 9:7. Amusingly, at DRBO.org, the Douay-Rheims Bible online, I first mistakenly opened Ecclesiasticus (aka Sirach) 9:7 instead. Much nerdy giggling on my part resulted. The juxtaposition here is delightful.
Here is what I was supposed to see in ECCLESIASTES 9:7
Go then, and eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with gladness: because thy works please God.
Vade ergo, et comede in laetitia panem tuum, et bibe cum gaudio vinum tuum, quia Deo placent opera tua.
And here is what I mistakenly looked up in ECCLESIASTICUS 9:7 instead:
Look not round about thee in the ways of the city, nor wander up and down in the streets thereof.
Noli circumspicere in vicis civitatis, nec oberraveris in plateis illius.
No one who knows, understands and believes in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, and in the Dogma of the Immaculate Conception and Assumption of the Blessed Virgin could ever, ever, ever, under any circumstance whatsoever leave, much less even doubt for a second the truth of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.
If I had one one thousandth the money a guy like Sean Hannity has, I’d build a chapel and have a priest in residence to offer the Holy Sacrifice daily, and men to chant the entire Divine Office every day, and set up an endowment for that to continue until Our Lord returns in Glory. AND HAVE IT ALL LIVE STREAMED. It’s a total no-brainer.
Hannity is on the record as rejecting the Church’s infallible (and infinitely CORRECT as if that needs saying) teaching on contraception.
My only question? When did Sean Hannity stop praying the Rosary daily? Or perhaps a better question would be: when did he start…?
Hear this now, folks: EVERY sex act, even within the context of sacramental marriage, that is contracepted, that is, that willfully thwarts the reproductive function, is NOT SEX, but an act of mortally sinful sodomy and/or masturbation. At BEST. If the “sex act” was not sexual, but sodomitical (oral, anal, or withdrawal) then the act is that of pure sodomy. Even between sacramentally married spouses.
Exactly like the faggots. Exactly.
Every. Single. Time.
A wife on the pill is engaging, along with her husband, in SODOMY even when they have vaginal sex, because they have totally thwarted, chemically, the SEXUAL function. Therefore the SEXUAL ACT is perverse in its end (telos) – it seeks as its end NOT the potential transmission of life, but only the orgasm of the spouses (with the orgasm of the male being paramount and defining), and thus isn’t SEX at all. It is masturbation. Sodomy. The sin of Onan.
And the thing about sin is that it makes people stupid, and blind to their own stupidity.
And one good, sincere sacramental confession could wipe it all away. Even to the worst priest in the world, because his ordination is SUPERNATURAL. That is how much Christ loves us.
Salvation. It can be, in a sense, so incredibly easy…. All you have to do is say you’re sorry, and MEAN IT. Legalistic gamers will only end up in a deeper pit of hell for all eternity.
Don’t you DARE go to confession and not mean EVERY WORD of what you confess. Ever. There is NOTHING WORSE than presuming upon God’s mercy. To do so is completely psychopathic. And it is the one UNFORGIVABLE sin, because it belies a total INDIFFERENCE to God, Our Lord, Incarnate, who died for our sins, personally. A total absence of love for Infinite Love Himself. Unforgivable.
“Ha-ha! Gotta love the sacraments! Off scott free YET AGAIN!” not only invalidates the filthy, scandalous Catholic’s confession, but digs their pit in hell deeper and all the more eternally agonizing. ETERNALLY. As in, the torment and separation will never, ever, ever end. Ever.
The deepest pits of hell are and will be occupied by Catholics- Catholics who were catechized and should have known better.
Can you, as a morally sane human being, imagine going into your bathroom, looking into the mirror, and thinking, “Man, I need to find someone who will cut on my face.”
Years ago the very talented graphic artist Mr. Big Fur Hat sent me a photoshopped montage of my head on the body of a very beautiful and physically fit woman. It was incredibly well-done. Some would call it “seamless”, and I was amazed and impressed at the technical accomplishment. But stay with me: I was very happy that he did this, but not for the reason you might think. Even though the photoshopping was “seamless” and the body that my head was photoshopped onto was beautiful, I recoiled from the image and it repulsed me. Why? Because the body wasn’t MY BODY. That wasn’t ME. And anything that isn’t authentically me, warts and all, is repellant when it has my face attached to it and is presented as “me”. Bottom line, it was a LIE, and LIES ARE REPELLANT, even, and perhaps most especially when they try to pass themselves off as beauty, goodness, and especially truth. Folks, this is called NORMALITY.
One of the most visible proof sets of the parabolic increase in Diabolical Narcissism amongst young girls today is the prevalence of “lip plumping” injections that even very young teenaged girls now covet and seek out. The fact that every woman or girl who has these injections looks immediately like a monstrous duck-trout hybrid freak seems to not be a concern – lack of self-awareness being another dead-giveaway of Diabolical Narcissism. Stop and consider that young girls today have no problem being significantly overweight, and have no problem walking the streets dressed like whores, but are willing to mutilate their own faces. The wages of sin is death – but first a death of the intellect. Sin makes people stupid and blind.
Fast forward to a few days ago, and a friend of the blog sent me this picture of Hillary Clinton. At first I thought it was fake. But it isn’t. Sure enough, true to form, like the total Diabolical Narcissist Psychopath she is, Hillary Clinton has now started massively auto-mutilating her face. I reckon the only real surprise here is that it took her this long to start.
Here is my original post on this topic from ARSH 2012 – the deep archive!
The one about… PSYCHOPATHS WHO MUTILATE THEIR FACES
Specifically in this essay, John Kerry.
I hadn’t seen John Kerry in a long time because I typically will go out of my way to avoid him because he is such a repellant human being. But I did catch a glimpse of him on a YouTube clip yesterday and was shocked at what I saw and heard. The man has mutilated his face to such an extent with “cosmetic” surgery that he both looks and sounds like a grotesque.
Last year Kerry showed up at some White House ceremony with two HUGE black eyes and a broken nose and told Obama, and had his press office tell Pravda, that he fell on his face playing ice hockey.
Riiiiight. We all believe that.
John Kerry had two black eyes and a broken nose because he had recently had massive plastic surgery. That is why John Kerry today looks like a grotesque freak with his forehead, face, and undereye area pulled completely taut. If you ever watched Star Trek: Deep Space 9 back in the early 1990s, John Kerry looks like the alien character Odo.
But I also noticed something while listening to Kerry speak: he has a distinct speech impediment now that he did not have before. I figured out what has caused the speech defect. Kerry had his lower jaw surgically moved forward in order to strengthen his chin.
Here is a photo montage.
-Top-left is Kerry in 2004. Note the crow’s feet, bags under the eyes, wrinkled forehead and the slight, natural overbite.
-Top-right is Kerry at the White House sporting the textbook post-plastic surgery bruising.
-Bottom left is Kerry at the same White House event, with Obama in the background. Note the completely unnatural and forced tucking of the skin under the chin. That is not natural.
-Bottom right is Kerry speaking earlier this month at the DNC convention. Video of that speech below. Note the bizarrely smooth facial skin, especially around the eyes and on the forehead.
Also note in the video clip the strange appearance of Kerry’s mouth and the strange new lisping breathiness with his “s” and “sh” sounds.
Fun experiment. Say the following sentence aloud normally:
“Can I ask your advice?”
Now, shift your lower jaw forward so that your bottom teeth are even with your top teeth, thus strengthening the profile of your chin. Repeat the sentence. Do you hear how your “s” sounds turn into “sh”? Can I ASHK your ADVISHE? Now go back and watch Kerry.
Okay, okay. So Kerry had a total facelift and had his jaw moved. Isn’t this trivia? Why are we wasting time worrying about this?
Because John Kerry, along with many of the people running the government, is totally, completely batshit insane, and we need to talk about this, acknowledge it, and parse it so that you guys can disqualify people like John Kerry from any position of governance after the war.
We have been conditioned by the media to shrug off these cosmetic surgeries as no big deal, but they are a big deal. First, let’s just think about how John Kerry views himself. This is a man who is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, who ran for POTUS, who has been in the Senate for decades, who is almost 70 years old, who SHOULD have a fairly good grasp of reality. But he doesn’t. John Kerry is a man who looks in the mirror and thinks to himself, “I need to have someone cut on and alter my face.”
Just stop for a moment and think about that. I would think that if we ranked the most sacred parts of our body, those parts that we deem most important to our identities, those parts that we are most connected to, that our FACE would be at the top of that list. Our faces are the part of our body that most expresses who we are.
John Kerry had his own face mutilated.
Are we seeing the problem here? Guys, these people are insane. They are malignant narcissists who are driven by a core of self-loathing.
Next, let’s ponder what John Kerry’s objective is in having his face mutilated. John Kerry is almost 70 years old. John Kerry is married to Teresa Heinz Kerry. John Kerry’s political career has maxed out. He will never run for POTUS again. He will probably never face any real opposition in Massachusetts for his Senate seat. (He resigned the Senate to be Secretary of State shortly after this piece was originally written.) So, why is John Kerry mutilating his face? What is the objective?
Simply put, John Kerry thinks that if he mutilates his face that he will look younger, and thus he will be able to have more sex with younger girls that he picks up in the halls of the Capitol and in Georgetown bars. Don’t kid yourself. This is all about John Kerry getting laid.
Again, stop and think about this. This is a man who is so weak and emotionally needy that he will mutilate his own face and turn himself into a grotesque freak because he is convinced that by doing so he will be able to convince more 24 year old morally degenerated, slack-jawed, gold-digging beltway skanks to perform sexual and sodomitical acts with him – and this will make him feel BETTER about himself.
We have to start acknowledging the fact that these people are dangerously insane and are a massive risk to all of us. We have to start acknowledging the fact that when people do horrific things to their bodies, including self-mutilation AND sodomitical abuse of the body, THAT MEANS SOMETHING. We have to start judging these people by their actions. God gave us brains. He wants us to use them, and that includes discerning and judging.
Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Michelle Obama, Mitt Romney, Vladimir Putin,
Silvio Berlusconi, Cristina Kirchner, all of these people and many, many more have had their faces altered. Sane people don’t have their faces altered. Sane people age gracefully and accept the changes that happen to their bodies with the passage of time. The people listed above are all – every one – psychologically unfit to hold ANY position of power.
People who mutilate their own faces and bodies are not fit to hold public office or have any governing power. After the war, remember this. When you are rebuilding this nation and this culture, PLEASE use common sense and good judgment and never, ever allow these sorts of people to hold any power because it will all end in tears and death, as we are seeing now.
(To head off any questions, no I do not think that orthodontics falls into the same category as plastic surgery. As a person who had 15 years of orthodontics, and would be the doppelganger of Sister Wendy Beckett, unable to properly shut my lips over my overbite if not for it, I do not think it is the same dynamic at all. You can’t over-do orthodontics. There is nothing unnatural about straight teeth. In fact, straight teeth are objectively beautiful because they have integrity of form, they are proportional and functional, and they make for a radiant smile and countenance. Mutilated faces on the other hand lack integrity of form, are oftentimes disproportional both in space and especially in time, they oftentimes diminish proper functionality of the muscles of the face, and they can make for a grotesque, repellant countenance. I really do think these two things are apples and oranges, and not just because I personally benefited from orthodontia.)
That really is a sweet little clip. The child who voiced Linus had such a quintessentially warm American accent, even down to the little lisp. Magic in a bottle – from the voices to the soundtrack. It was made in ARSH 1965 and stands as a marker of the end of the Christian American culture, only recognized now in retrospect.
Here’s a super-cool observation on this clip that you might not have noticed before. Note that when Linus gets to the words of the Angels to the Shepherds, “Fear not…”, he drops his security blanket, the motif for his (and our) fears and insecurities, and leaves it on the ground for the duration of his proclamation of The Word of God. Cool, huh?
But, a nit to pick, and a great lesson for all in how important an accurate translation of the Bible is. Most Bibles today read Luke 2:14 as:
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men.”
The last clause is mangled, as anyone who knows the Gloria in Latin (as one should, because it is said at a plurality of Masses throughout the year) can see.
The Vulgate Latin, which is St. Jerome’s synthesis of the original source texts commissioned by Pope St. Damasus I, triple cross-referenced against each other in Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew in preparation for the eventual setting of the canon of scripture at the Councils of Rome in ARSH 382, and Carthage in ARSH 397, reads thusly:
“…gloria in altissimis Deo et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis”
In English, in the Douay-Rheims translation thus reads:
Glory to God in the highest; and on earth peace to men of good will.
These are two completely different ideas. Radically different. The first translation has peace and goodwill together as co-subjects, as unqualified universals: “peace, goodwill TOWARD men”. The Vulgate clearly has goodwill not as the COMPOUND SUBJECT along with peace, but as the QUALIFIER. To men OF GOOD WILL. Good will isn’t the subject, it is the OBJECT OF THE PREPOSITION.
The Peace of Our Lord is a massively qualified, and extremely rare and precious thing. When the priest says at Mass, “Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum” (The peace of the Lord be always with you), he isn’t just saying “nice things” as filler. This is a profound and precious prayer.
Why would God, in His Perfect Justice, wish good will towards those men who are at war with Him, and thus His Church? Is not the Second Person, God Incarnate in the Manger in Bethlehem, the Judge of mankind? Is not the Baby wrapped in swaddling clothes He who will sort the sheep from the goats? Is He not the One who is come to sift the wheat from the chaff? Did He not say:
“Do not think that I came to send peace upon earth: I came not to send peace, but the sword.”
Cornelius of Lapide says in his commentary on Luke 2:
But all the Latins, and, among the Greeks, Origen, S. Chrysostom, and Cyril, read, and with better reason, for ευ̉δοκία good will, ευ̉δοκίας—of good will, making the hymn consist of two members. For as glory is given to God as to Him who is glorified, so peace is given to men of good will as to those whom the peace of Christ belongs and befits; and in this way the concatenation of the whole sentence hangs better together. The peace on earth cannot be supposed to be other than that which belongs to men of good will.
Oh, but if we are under attack by Freemasonic-Communist-homosexualist infiltrators, pushing their heresies of “universal salvation” and Indifferentism, and we want God reduced to an abstract philosophical construct, an “I’m okay, you’re okay” joke of a deity, an effete, toothless “idea” that is merely an excuse for neo-pagan self-worship and narcissistic performance opportunities, then, by all means, mangle and rearrange the Word of God. As the infiltrators tell their victims, “It doesn’t really matter what the original texts said or did not say – all that matters is what today’s translation means to you . . . “
Luke 2:14 is a quick, easy way to check the veracity of any translation of the Bible. Break yours out and check right now. And then, when you find it incorrectly translated, as you almost certainly will, ask yourself what other verses have been mangled. And then ask yourself what you’re missing in the seven books that Luther removed. Uh-oh.
Then, just GET A DOUAY-RHEIMS and use the Church’s authoritative English translation without fear or worry that you are reading Freemasonic-Communist-homosexualist agitprop.
Have a blessed remainder of Advent.
Say to those who are frightened: Be strong, fear not! Here is our God, He comes to save us.
