Something to make to you love humanity: “When we hear TSCHH, there’s a firework coming.”

The situation is dark.  It is REALLY EASY to hold humanity in contempt.  Don’t do it.  Don’t go there.  People aren’t all bad.

Ok.  So, listen to the Lennon Sisters singing “Tonight You Belong to Me” on the Lawrence Welk show in the late ’50s.  The Lennon family was a devout, big Catholic family out in California back in the day.  Sadly, a fixated paranoid schizophrenic murdered the father of the Lennon Sisters in the late 60s, but this clip is from way before that.

Yes, Lawrence Welk… I know.  I know.  BUT, the early Lawrence Welk stuff was good, and his accordionist Myron Floren was the best accordionist the world has ever seen.

Ok, for context, you have to listen to the Lennon Sisters FIRST, paying special attention to the harmonies, then meet me below for the next clip, which will melt your heart.

Okay. Got it?  NOW… listen to this random dude singing the same song with his four year old daughter on a pink ukulele.  This is one of the most beautiful things on the internet.  Why?  Because this man is CLEARLY best friends with his four year old daughter.  Note the patience.  Note how he respects her every pause and correction.  Note especially how when she corrects him into the harmony part and SHE takes the harmony at the 1:03 time stamp, the pride in his smile.  Also his wedding ring in focus, bringing Mom into the video in absentia, but just the incredible connection between Father and Daughter.  AT FOUR.

The Former United States in an absolute disaster, but things like this make one realize that there is still something worth fighting for.  Little girls being best-buds with their Dad who would die for them in a second being at the top of that list.

I hope this brightens your evening.

Keep your head on a swivel, and defend your women.


The Parable of the Taco Bell

(Originally penned and posted in January ARSH 2017, long before anyone heard the name “Viganò” or considered a global interdict even possible. Reposted by request.)

When I was a kid, we had two Mexican fast-food joints: Taco Grande and Taco John’s.  Then, when I was about ten, Taco Bell came to town and built from a dirt-start a brand new Taco Bell on a formerly empty lot.  I never liked Taco Bell, and never ate there.  I preferred Taco John’s.

Fast-forward in the story 12-15 years.  I am now in my early 20s, have been gone from the Kansas City area for many years, and have given exactly zero thought to the hometown Taco Bell.  I get a call from someone back in the ancestral homeland who tells me, “Hey, they razed the Taco Bell – went in with dozers and scraped it.”

“What happened? Did it burn?”  After all, why would they raze a building that was less than 15 years old?  Surely there must have been a fire, and razing the remains was the cheapest option, right?


It turned out that inspectors had discovered that the building was so filthy and thus so overrun with cockroaches that even intense treatments from professional fumigation and pest-control firms were ineffective in clearing the building of cockroaches.  So, the only path forward was to raze the building, haul away the cockroach-infested debris, apply pesticide to the pad and surrounding area, and build a brand new building.

Folks, this is what is going to have to happen in Rome.  Because people have failed to take any meaningful steps against the infiltration of sodomites into The Church, and especially in Rome itself, Rome is now like the Taco Bell – the only way to clear Rome of the faggots is to destroy Rome.

The faggots are absolutely everywhere in Rome, and as much as it pains me to say it, some of the worst, most spectacularly evil, most notorious, sacrilegious, and most enthusiastic of them are on the so-called “right” or “conservative” or “traditional” side of the spectrum.  And it makes sense.  Where can satan still do the most damage? Where does it benefit satan to hide at this late hour? Amongst the Remnant Church.  As long as they remain hidden, like the filthy cockroaches they are, they can continue to privately scandalize, subvert and sabotage.  If they are publicly exposed, the resulting scandal will cause even more people to either leave The Church (usually for Eastern Orthodoxy or sedevacantist cults) or to lose their faith entirely. Either way, satan wins.

Fifty years of looking the other way, not saying anything, treating homosexuality as a joke or a novelty, when it is, in fact, a never-sufficiently-execrated depravity and a capital crime, and specifically in Rome, where faggots are literally meeting up for sacrilegious sodomy INSIDE ST. PETER’S BASILICA, and then turning around and serving the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass or Divine Liturgy a few hours later across town, now the cockroaches are coming home to roost. It is too late get rid of them one-by-one, because they saturate the structure.

If you do your duty and keep the structure clean, you won’t get cockroaches.  If you aggressively attack and exterminate cockroaches at their first appearance, you have a chance to save the structure.  If you pretend not to see them, laugh them off, or even call them “cute” and “harmless”, or worst of all say, “That isn’t a cockroach!  That is a fluffy little bunny! How dare you say that sweet, innocent, fluffy little bunny is a cockroach!”, they will eventually necessitate the complete demolition of the structure.

“Those aren’t roaches! They’re fluffy bunnies that talk funny and act like girls because they are so intelligent and misunderstood!”

And only after the complete destruction of the structure will rebuilding be possible. And that is where we are.  We have failed spectacularly to keep the Church clean, and when the first signs came, we denied there was a problem.  Now, God will do what we refused to do.

The aching tragedy in all of this is that a Taco Bell can be thrown back up in a matter of weeks.  The Sistine Chapel and the rest of the artistic, cultural and ecclesial patrimony of Rome can never be replaced.  But, as we all heard when we were children, “THIS is why we can’t have nice things – because you won’t take care of them.” Indeed.  The chastisement is coming, and it is for all of us, because we have all been complicit in our silence and negligence.  In The House of The Lord, EVERYONE is responsible for helping to keep things clean.

Am I lit on my right? I ALWAYS need to be lit from my right.  Do you hear me?  Is my hair okay? I used Aquanet, but damn this Roman humidity.  And if I stand three-quarters like this, does it slim my hips? Hurry up and take the picture, damn you, Cardinal Wright is waiting for his “afternoon snack”, and Auntie Joan can not be made to wait.

Romans chapter 1…

For professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. [23] And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of the image of a corruptible man, and of birds, and of fourfooted beasts, and of creeping things. [24] Wherefore God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness, to dishonour their own bodies among themselves. [25] Who changed the truth of God into a lie; and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

[26]** For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. [27] And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error. [28] And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not convenient; [29] Being filled with all iniquity, malice, fornication, avarice, wickedness, full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity, whisperers, [30] Detractors, hateful to God, contumelious, proud, haughty, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

**[26] “God delivered them up”: Not by being author of their sins, but by withdrawing His grace, and so permitting them, in punishment of their pride, to fall into those shameful sins.

[31] Foolish, dissolute, without affection, without fidelity, without mercy. [32] Who, having known the justice of God, did not understand that they who do such things, are worthy of death; and not only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do them.

Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered: and let them that hate Him flee from before His face.

Wis 1:7.
The Spirit of the Lord fills the world, alleluia, is all-embracing, and knows man’s utterance, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
Ps. 67:2
God arises; His enemies are scattered, and those who hate Him flee before Him.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
The Spirit of the Lord fills the world, alleluia, is all-embracing, and knows man’s utterance, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

The Second American Civil War: Not QUITE like the first. No Mason-Dixon Line, and the People’s Liberation Army eyeballing the Pacific Coast.

(I originally wrote and posted this on June 23, ARSH 2010, almost a full year before I went viral. Wow. It’s almost as if you could see this all coming, or something. Actually, I have seen this coming since the late summer of ARSH 2008 when I realized that the United States was about to elect and install a Communist plant who wasn’t even an American citizen. Things like that tend to end . . . badly.)

I have received many emails and have heard much talk about the U.S. breaking into two countries ‐ one Constitutional Republic built on a foundation of Christian principles consisting of the Mountain, Central and Southern states (essentially a Second American Republic), and a Marxist‐Socialist‐Atheist confederation consisting of the Pacific Coast states, the Upper Midwest (IL, MI, MN, WI) and the New England states.

While it is sorely tempting to think about drop‐kicking the liberal states and going our separate ways, the reality is that this would be a MASSIVE mistake, and would almost certainly set in motion a chain of events that would end Western Civilization.

If this sort of “divorce” were to happen, we all know that the Second American Republic (SAR) would thrive while the Marxist Confederation (MC) would quickly fail catastrophically. When that failure happened, the MC would come begging to the SAR to bail it out. Now, you might be thinking, “Screw ‘em. They made their bed, now they can sleep in it. They’ll get no help from us.” That’s a knee‐jerk reaction, and it would be the WRONG reaction. Why? Because if the SAR turned down the MC’s requests for help, who would be the ONLY other nation capable of bailing out the MC? China. And as we should all understand with crystal clarity, the liberals in the MC states would be, without question, idiotic enough to actually INVITE the Chinese to take over their economy, and eventually their land ‐ purely as a “peacekeeping force” to control the food shortage riots, you understand. So, in order to stave off Chinese involvement in North America, we would have to bail the MC out anyway. It’s a textbook “damned if you do, damned if you don’t.”

In the event of a divorce wherein the SAR didn’t prop up the MC, the ports of San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle would be completely vulnerable, and eventually would be thrown wide open to a cold invasion by the Chinese – almost certainly by invitation. The same could also be said for the East Coast ports. Boston, New York and Washington D.C. would be vulnerable and/or invite a “peacekeeping force” from the U.N., probably led by Russia.

Now we need to talk military tactics. Assume that what I have just laid out actually came to pass. The SAR and Constitutionalist refugees from the MC states are now compressed into the geographic center of the continent. To the west lies the Chinese Army. To the east lies the UN/Russian army.

This is called a “Strategic Flanking”. In fact, this would be the largest strategic flanking in world history. To be “flanked” is very, very bad. If you are fighting any sort of battle, you want to keep your adversary in front of you at all times and your sides CLEAR. You must NEVER allow the adversary to move along your sides (flanks). Combat tacticians are CONSTANTLY looking for a way to move their troops in such a way so that they “gain the flanks”. Once a force loses its flanks, it becomes nearly impossible (without a massive advantage in weaponry) to escape. The most famous tactical flanking in history was executed by Hannibal at the Battle of Cannae in 216 BC. With fewer than 40,000 men, Hannibal drew the Roman army of 90,000 men into his center, and then wrapped around their flanks on both sides, thus forming a semi‐circle around the Romans. By doing this, Hannibal was able to COMPLETELY DESTROY the Roman army with fewer than HALF the number of men.

The most famous strategic flanking to date is probably the flanking of Nazi Germany by the Soviet army to the east and the Allies to the west. While this involved the entire European continent, the flanking I describe above on the North American continent would dwarf the Nazi flanking in size and scope. It is not hard to imagine a massive Chinese force pushing and compressing the SAR from the west, eventually wrapping around the northern flank, with a UN/Russian force compressing from New England in a southwesterly direction, pushing the people of the SAR south towards the Gulf of Mexico – which is at this moment being taken out of strategic play by the Russians via the cold lodgements of Cuba and Venezuela – and utter defeat.

Given these obvious tactical realities, I hope that one and all now see that the TERRITORIAL BOUNDARIES OF THE FIRST AMERICAN REPUBLIC MUST BE PRESERVED. Integrated sovereignty MUST remain intact from “sea to shining sea”. Amicable divorce is NOT an option. We can not allow Marxism to establish any quarter, even in the spirit of “compromise” and the avoidance of possible hostilities, because that “compromise” and “avoidance” would be to sign our own death warrants, and the death warrant of Western Civilization. It would be far better to fight a civil war of territorial preservation than to fight a war against a conquering Sino‐Russian invasion.

How sick is it that I have to post this crap? I’m a 33 year old single woman (when this was written). I should be planning my next business move, or thinking about recreational travel. Instead, I’m standing here, mid‐morning on a Wednesday, writing essays on secession dynamics and military tactics for the North American theater. This is the living, breathing definition of FUBAR. God save us.

Because this clip can never, ever be posted too much, here is Larry Grathwohl, the man who infiltrated the Weather Underground, outlining Bill Ayers’ and Bernadine Dohrn’s plan for balkanizing the former U.S. territory after overthowing and collapsing the Republic, and delegating administration of the quadrants of the landmass to Russia, China, Cuba and Vietnam. Since Cuba and Vietnam are mere satellites, the dynamic today is clearly that of a Sino-Russian axis.

Bill Ayers, you will remember, wrote Obama’s fictional “autobiography” Dreams From My Father, and Ayers’ family supported and groomed Obama for the Presidency from the time he was a teenager. It appears that Chicago Communist Frank Marshall Davis handed Obama off to the Ayers group in Chicago in the early 1980s. Bernadine Dohrn’s fingerprints are also all over Obama’s course syllabus when he was an adjunct lecturer at the University of Chicago. And of course, Obama’s entire adult life and political career has had Ayers and Dohrn as the main enablers and drivers.

Oh, and just as an aside, Grathwohl’s eyewitness testimony confirms that Ayers and Dohrn have planned on and anticipated the need to murder fully 10%-15% of the population as “unreformable, die-hard capitalists.” In the early 1980s when this interview was recorded, the population of the U.S. was 250 million, thus Grathwohl’s number of 25 million that Ayers and Dohrn were planning on killing. Today, that number would be 30-45 million Americans that will need to be “eliminated” in order to quash the “counter-revolution.”

Collect for the Feast of Saint Augustine of Canterbury:

O God, Who by the preaching and miracles of blessed Augustine, Thy Confessor and Bishop, didst vouchsafe to illumine the English people with the light of the true faith: grant that, through his intercession, the hearts of those who have gone astray may return to the unity of Thy truth and that we may be of one mind in doing Thy will. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God for ever and ever. Amen.

We are BOUND to seek the truth…

All persons are bound to seek the truth in those things which regard God and His Church and by virtue of divine law are bound by the obligation and possess the right of embracing and observing the truth which they have come to know.

Canon 748.1

I’d say the identity of the Vicar of Christ on Earth falls under the general category header of “things which regard God and His Holy Church.”

And being within the category of “All Persons”, we do what we are BOUND by Divine Law to do.

Work continues apace!

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