Mailbag: Pure blooded Canadian cattleman imprisoned in his own country checks in

Hi Ann,

I sent a cheque in USD to you via XPress-post for your Cattle Marketing DVD set.

I am very grateful that you have these DVD’s for sale. I was supposed to go take Doug Ferguson’s sell/buy course this week but got denied entry into the US (exit from Canada) because I’m not “vaccinated”. Doug said your DVD course was the best you can get besides being in class.

Thanks again and God bless.


Thanks, N. Stand firm against tyranny, and Justin Castreau and the NewWorldOrder.

Here is an hour-long interview with Reluctant Preppers from July of ARSH 2016 focusing on cattle marketing and livestock as a store of wealth and protection against inflationary and/or collapse scenarios. Sound… familiar?

“Qué soï era Immaculado Councepcioũ.”

Pope Pius IX issued the Papal Bull “Ineffabilis Deus” on this date in ARSH 1854 in which the Dogma of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary was infallibly defined.

I wonder if Trad, Inc. “Fwanciss is definitely Pope and schism is virtuous!” partisans today believe that Pope Pius IX even had the authority to make such a dogmatic declaration, or if Catholics are bound to believe that the Blessed Virgin was, in fact, conceived without the stain of Original Sin?   They have declared war on the Papacy itself (I guess they think the Freemasons have been right all along??) in service to their intransigent error, and have already openly declared that Vatican I was “wrong” in service to their money-and-human-respect driven campaign to refuse to investigate much less acknowledge the obvious truth that Pope Benedict never validly resigned, so it’s a VERY SLIPPERY SLOPE to schism, heresy and total apostasy from there. For what? A few bucks, and a few social invitations? Men without chests, indeed….

Here is the text of the declaration. Only SEVENTY-FOUR words, in English.

We declare, pronounce, and define that the doctrine which holds that the most Blessed Virgin Mary, in the first instance of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege granted by Almighty God, in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the human race, was preserved free from all stain of original sin, is a doctrine revealed by God and therefore to be believed firmly and constantly by all the faithful.

To confirm this, God sent The Blessed Virgin herself to a tiny village in southern France called Lourdes to appear to an illiterate teenaged peasant girl – at the town garbage dump.  Note that the Blessed Virgin did not appear to the theological faculty at Paris, or Leuven or Rome to confirm a nuanced and debated truth about her very existence.  No. She appeared to an illiterate teenaged peasant girl who had just recently been reprimanded in her catechism class for not knowing THE THREE PERSONS OF THE TRINITY.

It is shocking to think: how could someone who didn’t even know the Three Persons of the Trinity be deemed worthy to converse with the Mother of God?  First, because Bernadette Soubirous was 100% Catholic by virtue of the Sacraments, in which GOD IS THE ACTOR upon the person. But it is clear that Bernadette was deemed worthy because of her CHARITY and her HUMILITY.  She went to Mass and Confession and prayed the Rosary and did these things WELL without being able to pass a catechism test because her soul was pure and filled with love of God and of her fellow man, and because she was filled with humility.

It is also one a species of miracle – which the local clergy and bishop eventually realized – that an illiterate peasant girl like Bernadette could report back to the Bishop, per his request, that the Lady said to Bernadette that the Lady was the “Immaculado Councepcioũ”.  For an illiterate peasant girl who struggled to name the Three Persons of the Trinity, for her to drop this phrase – and not in French, and not in Latin, but in her own local dialect of the Occitan language, which is itself an interstitial branch between French and Spanish – was basically impossible unless Bernadette was taught the phrase by The Lady herself, exactly as Bernadette said.  Bernadette even said that the Lady had her repeat the words multiple times so that she wouldn’t forget, and then Bernadette kept repeating them as she walked back to town to tell the Bishop so that she wouldn’t forget them.

But why does it even matter if the Blessed Virgin was conceived without the stain of Original Sin?  Because the Immaculate Conception speaks directly to the Divinity of Our Lord.

This dogma and non-negotiable tenet of Christianity teaches that Mary was, by the grace of God, prevented from carrying the stain of Original Sin from the moment of her conception. To deny this is a deal-breaker. The logical consequences of denying the Immaculate Conception inevitably lead to denying the Incarnation and Divinity of Jesus Christ Himself. When the Blessed Virgin appeared to Bernadette and told her in no uncertain terms and in St. Bernadette’s local micro-dialect of the Occitan language, “Qué soï era Immaculado Councepcioũ” the Dogmatic Definition of just over three years earlier by Pope Pius IX was underlined by Heaven itself.  All that remained was for science to progress sufficiently to confirm this – and that has now happened.  More on that in a second.

Mary was saved from Original Sin by her Son, saved by Him like all of the other faithful, it is just that the timing of her salvation was different from everyone else. This is why Mary, sinless though she is, still calls God “my Savior” in her Magnificat in Luke 1:46-55. Instead of letting Mary fall in the mud puddle of Original Sin like the rest of us, God stuck out His Arm back through time from the Cross and kept her from falling in the mud puddle of Original Sin in the first place – but if it weren’t for God’s positive action of reaching out across time from the Cross and holding her from falling, she would have fallen. This is called “grace”, and is what the Angel Gabriel was referring to when he greeted Mary at the Annunciation with the words, “Hail! Full of grace! The LORD is with thee. Blessed art thou among women.” Luke 1:28

Full of grace means FULL. OF. GRACE. How full is full? Full is totally full. To the brim. Full does not mean half-full or mostly-full. Full means full. Mary was FULL OF GRACE.

And because Mary was FULL of grace, as we know directly from the inerrant words of the Gospel of Luke, there was absolutely no room for sin. Mary didn’t sin because God her Savior had filled her with grace and therefore she just COULDN’T sin. Most of us reading this have a tiny taste of what this is like. For example, I’m guessing that everyone reading this would be incapable of killing a baby. We just COULDN’T do it. No matter what threat was made against us, no matter what the adverse consequences to our own lives might be, we would take any adverse consequence before killing a baby. We are simply incapable of performing that act. Why? What is that internal force of energy that prevents us from committing acts of evil even when under intense duress and threat? It is grace. Pure and simple.

Sadly, most of us have a little grace, but are not in any way FULL of grace. I am personally much closer to being full of crap than of grace (which many of you have already pointed out to me – thank you very much), hence the daily, persistent, repeated sinning on my part. And I suspect it is a similar situation with you, dear reader, with the grace-to-crap ratio being much higher for you than for me. I really am quite full of crap. With Mary there was no crap because God her Savior had FILLED her with grace, and thus there was no room for crap, and thus there was no sin. It’s really just 2nd grade math if you think about it. But WHY? Why was it essential for Mary to be sinless and sinless from the moment of her conception? That’s where the science comes in.

There are two phases to Mary’s existence. The first phase was from the moment of her conception until the Annunciation, which is when Jesus was conceived in her womb by the Holy Ghost. The second phase was from that moment of Jesus’ conception forward for all eternity. Each phase has its own physiological delight attached to it which required Mary to be a sinless vessel for Our Lord.

First, the pre-Annunciation period. As it has been discovered just within the last few decades, all baby girls have all of the eggs that are ever going to be in their ovaries fully formed not just at birth, but fairly early in their fetal development phase. Unlike men who are continuously producing new sperm, a woman’s eggs aren’t created and formed with each menstrual cycle. All that is happening during a cycle is that an egg, which has been fully formed in a woman’s body since she was a pre-born fetus, is released into the reproductive tract. What this means theologically is that the egg containing the 23 chromosomes that God would miraculously fertilize with 23 chromosomes that He miraculously supplied (including a Y chromosome) to become the Word Made Flesh, Jesus Christ, was physically present inside Mary’s body from the time that Mary was inside of her mother’s, St. Anne’s, womb. That egg, and those chromosomes, that physical constituent of Our Blessed Lord was present inside of Mary’s body, waiting to be . . . if I may use the word . . . consecrated. The word consecrate, when broken into its Latin components means:

Con: With
Secr: Holy
Ate: Territory of a Ruler

And so, Mary was, from the time she was inside St. Anne’s womb, already carrying a portion of Our Lord’s physicality, namely 23 of His chromosomes. And thus Mary was, from her very beginning, already a proto-tabernacle, already the Ark of the New Covenant, carrying within her what would be consecrated into The Law Incarnate, The High Priest, and The Bread of Life – just like the Old Ark, except perfected and fully fulfilled as God Incarnate. And as we know from the book of Exodus, the Old Ark had to be “perfect”. And thus, the Ark of the New Covenant was TRULY perfect, except this perfection was a perfection that only God Himself could accomplish: the perfection of Mary, full of grace and thus saved from all sin, including Original Sin.

The second phase is actually broken into two sub-phases. The first sub-phase is when Mary was pregnant with Jesus and His entire body was inside of hers.

The second phase is that phase from the time of Jesus’ birth forward into all eternity. Jesus is STILL, to this day, right now as you are reading this, physically inside of Mary in a unique way. It was discovered just a few short years ago that immune cells pass from a pre-born child to the mother across the placenta. Not only do these immune cells, which are the child’s and thus carry the exclusive and complete DNA of the child, pass across the placenta, but they persist in the mother’s body for the rest of her life. A woman who has carried a son has immune cells with Y-chromosomes in her bloodstream that can now be filtered out of her blood and observed. Female children also pass cells to their mothers.

Thus, a woman truly does carry her children around inside of her, with their DNA coursing through her heart, for the rest of her life. That isn’t just a sentiment – it is a physiological fact.

Thus, Mary continued and continues to this day to be a perpetual, living physical tabernacle of her Son, as she carries cells with His DNA in her bloodstream. And so now we see why Mary was and had to be filled with grace and thus saved from the stain of Original Sin from the moment of her conception eternally forward – because she was and is a perpetual Ark of the New Covenant.

This also explains why Mary’s body was assumed into heaven immediately at the end of her earthly life, because her body literally contained living cells of Our Lord and thus her body could not remain on earth in physical death to decay in any way.

Knowing that Christ rising again from the dead, dieth now no more, death shall no more have dominion over Him.

Scientes quod Christus resurgens ex mortuis jam non moritur : mors illi ultra non dominabitur.

-Romans 6: 9

She simply was afforded the same physical resurrection that all of the faithful will receive, albeit instantaneously for her, given her very special state, both spiritually and physically. This is what is doctrinally referred to as “The Assumption”.

St. Bernadette, pray for us.

Our Lady, conceived Immaculate without the stain of Original Sin, pray for us.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us.

“Qué soï era Immaculado Councepcioũ.”

The Immaculate Conception, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, ARSH 1768 – 86 years BEFORE the dogmatic definition

Everyone loves Ambrosia…

Today is the Feast of Saint Ambrose of Milan, the great Doctor of the Church, died ARSH 397.

Below are a few choice quotations. All good, certainly, but having the hallmark dish at every American potluck dinner for the past 70 years named after you cannot be understated as an achievement. I mean, Cool-hhhWhip AND marshmallows? Canned mandarin oranges and pineapple? Shredded sweetened coconut? MARASCHINO CHERRIES?

Happy Feast.

Saint Ambrose, pray for us.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us.

When we speak about wisdom, we are speaking about Christ. When we speak about virtue, we are speaking about Christ. When we speak about justice, we are speaking about Christ. When we speak about peace, we are speaking about Christ. When we speak about truth and life and redemption, we are speaking about Christ.

Our own evil inclinations are far more dangerous than any external enemies.

As in paradise, God walks in the Holy Scriptures, seeking man.

Love is like a shadow, one can only catch it by falling into it.

In some causes silence is dangerous.

When we find ouselves in some grave danger we must not lose courage but firmly trust in God, for where there is the greatest danger, there is also the greatest help from Him who wants to be called our ‘Help’ in times of peace and in times of tribulation.

Remember, then, that you received a spiritual seal, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of knowledge and reverence, the spirit of holy fear. Keep safe what you received. God the Father sealed you, Christ the Lord strengthened you and sent the Spirit into your hearts as the pledge of what is to come.

True repentance is to cease from sin.

Law is twofold — natural and written. The natural law is in the heart, the written law on tables. All men are under the natural law.

The Lord Jesus Himself proclaims, ‘This is My Body.’ Before the blessing of the heavenly words something of another character is spoken of; after consecration it is designated ‘Body’. He Himself speaks of His Blood. Before the consecration it is spoken of as something else; after the consecration it is spoken of as ‘Blood’. And you say, ‘Amen’, that is, ‘It is true.’ What the mouth speaks, let the mind within confess; what the tongue utters, let the heart feel.

To be content, to find true love, is what essentially drives us all, but if found, would it be recognized?

Blessed, plainly, is that life which is not valued at the estimation of outsiders, but is known, as judge of itself, by its own inner feelings. It needs no popular opinions as its reward in any way; nor has it any fear of punishments. Thus the less it strives for glory, the more it rises above it. For to those who seek for glory, that reward in the shape of present things is but a shadow of future ones, and is a hindrance to eternal life, as it is written in the Scriptures: ‘Truly I say to you, they have received their reward’

It was not by dialectic that it pleased God to save His people.

We ask for what reason our Lord was unwilling to state the time of His coming (cf. Mk. 13:31-32). If we ask it, we shall not find it is owing to ignorance, but to wisdom. For it was not to our advantage to know; in order that we being ignorant of the actual moments of judgment to come, might ever be as it were on guard, and set on the watch-tower of virtue, and so avoid the habits of sin; lest the day of the Lord should come upon us in the midst of our wickedness.

Repost by Request… HUMANICIDE: Pfizer admits in its own mRNA jab trial documentation that non-jabbed people can be ENVIRONMENTALLY EXPOSED to the jab’s spike proteins by INHALATION and SKIN CONTACT

(Originally penned and posted in April ARSH 2021.)

It’s not a vaccine or anything even remotely related to vaccines. It’s a HUMANICIDE. And it sheds and is highly transmissible by Pfizer’s own gleeful admission.

And the self-extermination of mankind required absolutely nothing more than strangers on television re-naming common seasonal colds and flu, and thus starting a global religion.

The only thing left to see is how effective these HUMANICIDES are. Will they kill outright, or are they, as suspected from day one, a mass sterilization project? (We now see from excess deaths due to “Suddenly” and the stunning reductions in live births that it is, in fact, BOTH. -AB ’22)

*FIVE WARNINGS: “If my requests are not heeded, Russia will spread her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church; the good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various entire nations will be annihilated.”

Mailbag: “It’s amazing that A.I. can read the dataset, but Trad, Inc. can’t.”

(Fascinating email over the transom.)


There is a new AI program being publicly beta tested by OpenAI. It’s called ChatGPT and it’s designed to interact in conversational speech. (It also seems capable of writing passable poetry, though it fails at jokes because it can’t really understand punch lines.) I don’t understand the exact workings of this AI but it appears to mine the available data on the internet and form it into intelligible conversational English.

After about a half hour of messing around with it, I gave it the following command:

“Write why Pope Benedict is still pope and not Bergoglio.”

It then responded:

Pope Benedict is still pope and not Bergoglio because Pope Benedict did not resign or abdicate the papacy. When Pope Benedict announced his intention to retire in 2013, he made it clear that he would continue to hold the office of pope until a new pope was elected to take his place. (This is incorrect. -AB) This means that Pope Benedict is still the pope, and Jorge Bergoglio, also known as Pope Francis, is the current pope. (Also incorrect, but it gets back on track in the next paragraph…. -AB)

Additionally, the Catholic Church does not recognize the concept of co-popes or joint papacies. This means that only one person can hold the office of pope at any given time, and there can be no overlap or sharing of the papal duties. This means that Pope Benedict is still the pope, and Bergoglio is the current pope, but they cannot both hold the office simultaneously. (Apparently the A.I. also struggles with internal contradictions and violations of the Law of Non-contradiction as much as Trad, Inc. partisans do. -AB)

Overall, Pope Benedict is still pope and not Bergoglio because Pope Benedict did not resign or abdicate the papacy, and the Catholic Church does not recognize co-popes or joint papacies. (A strong finish. -AB)

Out of the mouth of electronic babes!

It’s amazing that AI can read the data set but Trad Inc. can’t.

I pray for you every day, please pray for me and my family.

Yours in Christ,
