“…because Ann Barnhardt walked away from a clique of sodomite and sodophile Trad pseudo-intellectuals in Rome”
I saw them for myself in Rome at Easter 2016 again when passing through. I was creeped out by over hearing men lisping camp abuse at the Italian families in the Trinita (TLM) parish. I was sick and repelled and deliberately spoke Italian and avoided them- like the plague.
Why? Why? Why?
I kept saying this to myself.
Why are these people infecting the Church.
Your whole narcissist expose has explained it.
May God quarantine them in an earthly penitentiary, far from people seeking sanctification in this life, like some virus and pray that their guardian angels help them recover sanity. It is possible – like Joseph Sciambra.
Fr. Hannon begins discussing “the Barnhardt Hypothesis” at the 11:00 mark. He makes the point, in a very calm and measured tone, that all attempts at refutation have been ad hominem attacks against me and the mendacious straw man accusation of “sedevacantism”.
I’d first like to extend my gratitude to everyone for all of the absolutely LOVELY notes of support and encouragement. Let me assure one and all that the personal attacks and calumnies against me do not bother me at all. Not even slightly. And I really mean that. In fact, the thing that I am having to work on and be very careful about is laughing at these things (along with many friends who are watching quietly) because sin is never funny, especially grave sins. Remember, EVERY sin is an offense against Our Lord Jesus Christ. Every sin He bears in His Agony in the Garden. EVERY sin He takes as He is scourged at the pillar. EVERY sin He carries on His back to Calvary. So, it is really important to remember, and this is my personal challenge in this context, that sin is NEVER funny because there is NOTHING about Our Lord’s Passion that is funny. Nothing. As we pray the First Sorrowful Mystery of the Rosary, Our Lord’s Agony in the Garden, and we consider the Fruit of the Mystery, Sorrow for Sin, we must remember that that sorrow should first and foremost be for our OWN sins, BUT it is also sorrow for the sins of the world, including the sins of our “enemies”. Sorrow. NOT amusement. This is a reason why we say in the Confiteor, “thought, word and deed”.
We should also remember that Our Lord was ruthlessly and relentlessly attacked and calumniated, being accused of everything under the sun, from blasphemy to insanity to sorcery to being a demoniac, and probably other unspeakable things too that aren’t recorded in the Gospels. One can only imagine. So, when such things happen to us, it is just another opportunity being given to us by the Divine Providence to draw even closer to Our Lord, sharing in His Sorrowful Passion, even if only to a minuscule degree. Count it ALL joy.
Next, just another reminder pertaining to what Fr. Hannon says in the video above. Many people assume that all of the various people that are so stridently against the case made by me and others that Pope Benedict’s attempted resignation was canonically invalid are fully informed as to the argumentation, Canon Law citations, logical arguments, etc. For this reason, people email me expressing surprise and confusion that the people who are trying to discredit the argument often try to make arguments that I either anticipate or refute explicitly in the video presentations, and in writing, oftentimes repeatedly here in this space. Yes. The reason for this is that these people have not, to this day, engaged the dataset. They admit openly that they refuse to read or watch anything I have done because I am “stupid”, “irrational”, “unqualified”, “ugly”, “crazy”, “sociopathic”, “narcissistic”, “evil”, etc. I think we all know the real reason these folks refuse to engage the dataset. They’re terrified that it is true, and that my presentation is sound.
Finally, a bit of explanation of why these people have a massive beef against me personally.
Years ago I fell in with a crowd of people in Rome that I should have never had anything to do with. I did not heed warnings, and to my eternal shame, I disregarded my gaydar. Men who act like super-campy queens act that way not because they are “super-smart”, but because they are homosexual. Being intelligent does NOT make people sex perverts. Diabolical Narcissism makes people sex perverts. I walked away from this clique several years ago, and thank God every day that I did. THIS is the root and genesis of the foaming hatred of me personally. It is literally a junior high school-level thing. “Francis is definitely Pope and we hate Ratzinger” because Ann Barnhardt walked away from a clique of sodomite and sodophile Trad pseudo-intellectuals in Rome and “she won’t do what we say and we hate her and we hate anyone who doesn’t hate her too.” Um, okay. I shall try not to sink beneath my own anguish. It LITERALLY is that adolescent and stupid. And goes to show you how important it is to NOT keep bad company. It might not bite you in the butt today, or tomorrow, but keeping bad company WILL cause you problems eventually. If you see or are shown red flags, and especially if your gaydar pegs, honor that. First impressions, while certainly not infallible, should be weighted heavily because they generally contain some truth.
Keep a close eye on this space as there will be multiple posts per day. I have a list of posts and essays as long as my arm in queue. IT’S ALL HAPPENING, FOLKS! IT IS A GLORIOUS TIME TO BE ALIVE! KEEP PRAYING!! PRAY THE ROSARY! GO TO MASS! STAY CLOSE TO THE SACRAMENTS!
Q: Ann, longtime reader from WAY back. My wife and I are convinced, and have started RCIA because there is no TLM anywhere close, but we know that RCIA will get us into the One True Church. Thoughts? Advice?
A: When people hear the truth, and see the reality of the situation in the Church today, not only is it not repellant, it is ATTRACTIVE. Lots of people, including people who have been militantly anti-Catholic are seeing the obviously PRETERNATURAL attack upon the Church, the Papacy, and Pope Benedict, and are realizing that the locus of Christianity isn’t in the United Methodist Church, or the Presbyterians, or the Baptists or the Lutherans. The Bergoglian Antipapacy is, in a certain sense, shining a huge light on the fact that it is The Catholic Church that is the One True Church founded by Jesus Christ in the Upper Room, and that the successor to St. Peter is its visible earthly head and Principal of Unity. Seeing that the Church, the Papacy and Pope Benedict XVI are under withering attack, people WANT TO JOIN THE FIGHT – including lots of converts.
So, what to do if you are located in one of the remaining liturgical deserts? First, the correspondent is absolutely right in that converting through a Novus Ordo parish and the RCIA program will absolutely get you “in”. Antipope Bergoglio is not invalidating any sacraments… YET.
The risk, as I see it, is that people who are still very much learning the faith might be scandalized by Novus Ordo RCIA antics and misinformation, and run screaming. This CAN be overcome. As always, the way to overcome scandal is INFORMED TRUTH. How? Contact a TLM parish in a metro area and tell them your situation. Ask if they can help you with your conversion studies. Do they have a reading syllabus for converts, and even better, would it be possible for them to do convert instruction sessions via Skype or some other video conferencing software.
Now, understand, these TLM parishes all commemorate “Francis” at the Te Igitur. What you are looking for is NOT a parish that is openly BiP. What you are looking for is just solid convert instruction in the basics of the faith, NOT a forum to adjudicate the identity of the Roman Pontiff. I think it is fair to say that at this point more than half of the pew sitters in TLM parishes have, at minimum, doubts about the validity of Pope Benedict’s resignation, or just about Bergoglio in more general terms, but don’t expect the priests to take any hard stand against Antipope Bergoglio. Understand this, and just get yourself into Holy Mother Church as best you can, with as much solid catechesis as you can get.
Get on the phone. Talk to people. Ask for referrals. Network. It would be totally reasonable for someone in west Texas to do online convert instruction with a priest in New England… or even Europe. Don’t put up geographical barriers where none actually exist thanks to telecommunication.
We live in glorious times. WE have been chosen for these days. We have the technology to talk to anyone, anywhere on the planet, for all intents and purposes. We have access to the sum of human knowledge, instantly. We have the toolkit. All we need is the initiative, the fighting spirit, and the LOVE OF GOD. The victory is ours. The only question is how it plays out.
The Pope is the visible head of the Church Militant and the Principal of Unity thereto. The Papacy is a supernaturallynegatively protected juridicalOffice, as explicitly guaranteed by Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Himself in the Holy Gospel. Confirming the bretheren is a visible hallmark and ministry of the Petrine Munus (Office).
And the Lord said: Simon, Simon, behold Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and thou, being once converted, confirm thy brethren.
“In the meantime, we talked to someone very high beyond the Vatican walls, who made us aware of what his weighted judgment is on the story of the Viri Probati, of Celibacy and of the exhortation – which according to Don Nicola Bux was changed to following the release of the book by Benedict XVI and Sarah.
According to the prelate, the key elements of the situation are three: 1st – Benedict feels himself Pope, not emeritus. 2 ° – He manifested it in this circumstance. 3rd – Pope Bergoglio understood this and was afraid.”
We are literally one thirty second long press statement by a Cardinal away from ending this. If a Cardinal were to make the following statement or something like it, and release it to the press, there would be prelates and Cardinals crawling out of the woodwork to support it.
“Significant canonical irregularities have been identified with regards to Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation as proffered in February of 2013. Pending further investigation, a state of emergency suspense is hereby declared.”
Thirty simple words.
Pray for Pope Benedict, the Papacy, and Holy Mother Church.
“That website is all hat and no cattle. While it is true that in Canon law munus is juridically taken to mean office – that much is true – and is conceptually different than ministerium, however it belongs to the Supreme Legislator to determine the sense of his own acts, and BXVI clearly intended resignation from the munus, because the papal ministry and the papal munus are not separable….”

The “always” is also a “for-ever”– there can no longer be a return to the private sphere. My decision to RESIGN THE ACTIVE EXERCISE OF THE MINISTRY does not revoke this. I do not return to private life, to a life of travel, meetings, receptions, conferences, and so on. I am not abandoning the cross, but remaining in a new way at the side of the crucified Lord. I no longer bear the POWER OF OFFICE FOR THE **GOVERNANCE** OF THE CHURCH, but in the service of prayer I remain, so to speak, intheenclosure of Saint Peter. Saint Benedict, whose name I bear as Pope, will be a great example for me in this. He showed us the way for a life which,whether active or passive, is completely given over to the work of God.
Ignorance or misjudgment about theessential nature,main terms, orprincipal motiveof theobject of an act.
A resignation made out of grave fear that is inflicted unjustly or out of malice, substantial error, or simony is invalid by the law itself.
If it happens that the Roman Pontiff resigns his office, it is required for validity that the resignation is made freely and properly manifested but not that it is accepted by anyone.

“Quapropter bene conscius ponderis huius actus plena libertate declaro me ministerio Episcopi Romae, Successoris Sancti Petri, mihi per manus Cardinalium die 19 aprilis MMV commisso renuntiare ita ut a die 28 februarii MMXIII, hora 20, sedes Romae, sedes Sancti Petri vacet et Conclave ad eligendum novum Summum Pontificem ab his quibus competit convocandum esse.”
In this episode we discuss politics, including Rush Limbaugh’s announcement of advanced cancer, Trump’s State of the Union address, and the elder abuse that’s being committed by whomever it is who is forcing Joe Biden to remain on the campaign trail. We also talked about the Wuhan Flu (Coronavirus) and death, specifically the recent death of professional athlete Kobe Bryant who was more Catholic than the hosts realized prior to the accident. It would be a good and holy thing if the 30 Gregorian Masses were said for Kobe as they are being said for Ann’s monk-friend Brother Thomas Pauling (which concludes February 15th — there’s still time to join your intentions with the priest offering that Mass!)

I see there is talk of withdrawing all ground troops from Afghanistan, and therefore going to a 100% air strike policy.
About. Damn. Time.
If the Cheeto Emperor accomplishes this, then, build him an Obelisk or something. Covered in gold leaf. Classy. Top of the line. Terrific.
And I’m dead serious. We can talk about the deficit and the debt increase later.
FACT: The rape of boys is an endemic, ubiquitous and open part of the Afghani (and broad islamic) culture.
FACT: Countless US troops have experienced psychological trauma that is ARGUABLY WORSE than the carnage of the battlefield by personally eyewitnessing boys being raped, often by men that they were tasked with “training”, and then being forbidden to intervene by their USMIL superiors.
FACT: As a direct result of the psychological trauma of being forced to passively cooperate in boy rape, these troops are prescribed Anti-anxiety and Anti-depressants which have a MASSIVE, WELL-KNOWN side effect of suicidal ideation.
