White House Says It Will Fake "Chemical Weapon Attack" In Syria

From Moon of Alabama (a well-informed internet site):

White House Says It Will Fake "Chemical Weapon Attack" In Syria


The White House claims that the Syrian government is preparing "chemical weapon attacks". This is clearly not the case. Syria is winning the war against the country. Any such attack would clearly be to its disadvantage. The White House announcement must thereby be understood as preparation for another U.S. attack on Syria in "retaliation" for an upcoming staged "chemical weapon attack" which will be blamed on the Syrian government.

In August 2013 Syria invited inspectors of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to investigate chemical weapons attacks on the Syrian army. As soon as the inspectors arrived in Damascus a "chemical attack" was staged in Ghouta near Damascus. Lots of Jihadist video coverage of killed children was published and the "western" media blamed the incident on the Syrian government. It never explained why targeting a militarily irrelevant area with chemical weapons at the same time as inspectors arrived would have been a rational decision for a Syrian government that was just regaining control and international standing.

The "attack" was clearly staged by the opposition of the Syrian government and its foreign supporters. The Obama administration had planned to use it to launch U.S. attacks on the Syrian government but refrained from this when Russia arranged to remove Syria's strategic chemical weapons, aimed at Israel, instead.

In early 2017 the new U.S. president Trump made positive comments about the Syrian government. Assad can stay, he said. The Syrian military and its allies had gained the upper hand and were victorious on all fronts. Two days later another "chemical attack" was staged in the al-Qaeda held town of Khan Sheikhun. Lots of Jihadi video coverage of killed children, likely prepared in advance, was spilled onto the "western" public. U.S. intelligence knew that no chemical attack by the Syrian government had taken place. But the Trump administration used the incident to launch a volley of cruise missiles against a Syrian military airport. The neoconservatives were delighted. They finally had Trump where they wanted him. The media coverage changed from damming Trump for his alleged "Russian connections" to lauding his decisiveness in response to the faked attack.

Late May the new French president Macron ostensibly changed his position towards the Syrian government. The hostile position of France (and other EU countries) against the Syrian president Assad that had been eminent throughout the last six years changed on a dime:
Macron said that on Syria: “My profound conviction is that we need a political and diplomatic roadmap. We won’t solve the question only with military force. That is a collective error we have made. The real change I’ve made on this question, is that I haven’t said the deposing of Bashar al-Assad is a prerequisite for everything. Because no one has introduced me to his legitimate successor!
But Macron also added:
"I have red lines on chemical weapons and humanitarian corridors. I said it very clearly to Vladimir Putin. I will be uncompromising on that. So the use of chemical weapons will be met with a response, and even if France acts alone.”
This immediately set off my warning lights:
Moon of Alabama @MoonofA - 4:28 PM - 29 May 2017
You like fakes? Tune in to Macron announcing the next False Flag chemical weapon attack in Syria.

Like all "red lines" this one Macron set was an invitation to the Takfiris to launch more fake incidents. Others had a similar reaction to Macron's (fake) turnaround.

Heather Culbert Without Borders

How noble.  How self-sacrificing.  How heroic.

"Doctors Without Borders".

"Doctors Without Borders" takes great pride in its commitment to help the helpless.  Yet its president, one Heather Culbert, goes the whole mile.  In fact she goes beyond that.  For Heather there are no borders, no limits.  Not even the border of simple human decency is one she will not tear down.  For you see, Heather is an abortionist.  And, obviously, one of the rankest hypocrites in modern times, posing as a great humanitarian while chopping up infants in the womb.  Apparently Doctors  Without Borders don't help all the helpless.

The Noble One

This all came out in the recent case of Mary Wagner who, in what her lights told her was an appropriate response to this slaughter, has defiantly ignored the draconian Canadian laws which protect the guilty and punish the innocent, when it comes to the crime of abortion.  Whatever the wisdom of Miss Wagner's approach to this serious problem of the self-extermination of the human race it cannot be denied that at least one flagrant hypocrite has been revealed to the public.

Donate to "Doctors Without Borders" ?  I don't think so.

Heather's face, hardly one to make a male's heart go atwitter, is an interesting study in contradictions. There is something half-crooked about that smile that does not inspire confidence.  But I'll leave those musings to others.  As for me, if she was presented to me as a blind date I'd suddenly remember an appointment elsewhere.

So how does Culbert in her own mind reconcile her work with "Doctors" and her more lucrative work as an exterminator?  By getting real nasty with those who point out the great contradiction in her life.

Such is the dreadful mindset of Heather Culbert.

The Sacred Heart prayer Padre Pio recited every day



He recited this prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and knew this would bring help and comfort to those who asked him for prayers.


I. O my Jesus, you have said: "Truly I say to you, ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened to you." Behold I knock, I seek and ask for the grace of...... (here name your request)
Our Father....Hail Mary....Glory Be to the Father....Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.


II. O my Jesus, you have said: "Truly I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father in my name, he will give it to you." Behold, in your name, I ask the Father for the grace of.......(here name your request) Our Father...Hail Mary....Glory Be To the Father....Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

III. O my Jesus, you have said: "Truly I say to you, heaven and earth will pass away but my words will not pass away." Encouraged by your infallible words I now ask for the grace of.....(here name your request) Our Father....Hail Mary....Glory Be to the Father...Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible not to have compassion on the afflicted, have pity on us miserable sinners and grant us the grace which we ask of you, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, your tender Mother and ours. 


Say the Hail, Holy Queen and add: St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us.
 


-- St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Mr Buchanan warns Mr Trump

Sunday, a Navy F-18 Hornet shot down a Syrian air force jet, an act of war against a nation with which Congress has never declared or authorized a war.
Washington says the Syrian plane was bombing U.S.-backed rebels. Damascus says its plane was attacking ISIS.
Vladimir Putin’s defense ministry was direct and blunt:
“Repeated combat actions by U.S. aviation under the cover of counterterrorism against lawful armed forces of a country that is a member of the U.N. are a massive violation of international law and de facto a military aggression against the Syrian Arab Republic.”
An ABC report appears to back up Moscow’s claims:
“Over the last four weeks, the U.S. has conducted three air strikes on pro-regime forces backed by Iran that have moved into a deconfliction zone around the town of Tanf in southwestern Syria, where there is a coalition training base for local forces fighting ISIS.”
Russia has now declared an end to cooperation to prevent air clashes over Syria and asserted an intent to track and target aerial intruders in its area of operations west of the Euphrates.
Such targets would be U.S. planes and surveillance drones.
If Moscow is not bluffing, we could be headed for a U.S.-Russian collision in Syria.

Childish Church


Having spent part of February, most of March, a few days in early April and another bunch of days two weeks ago in the hospital, my mind in those boring surroundings had often wandered into thinking about my fellow everyday average Catholics and how they can manage during these days of "diabolic disorientation".  What is coming down the pike at them, and how will they (and we) cope with it? Catholics who attend reverent liturgies and take their faith seriously will hopefully withstand much of the storm; but what of these others, those whose experience of Catholicism is an occasional parish pancake breakfasts and a puerile liturgy?

Do our fellow Catholics, the majority of them, like being treated like burbling infants in their daily parish life?  How will that help them when the final hurricane really hits?  I worry about them.

When the balloons descended from the Vatican to mark a ceremony for peace some time ago I knew that we were now finally in what can only be called the Childish Church.  "Infantile" may be a better word but for now childish will do.  And events since then have only strengthened that view.  The old ways of virility, prudence and simple reverential reserve are gone; clown noses and balloons and huzzahs have replaced them.

[Some have offered the suggestion that after the infamous (but very telling) 2014 release of the doves, who were suddenly set upon and attacked by ravens and a seagull - which many have said is an omen if ever there was one - it was a better idea to avoid any repeat of this sudden horror by exchanging the doves, a sign of peace, with something more in keeping with the mentality that currently thrives in the Church:  Balloons.  What does the average Catholic, or non-Catholic for that matter, think of all this?]

I really do worry about these souls, those who know nothing of Catholicism but its recent bastardization by the Modernists.  When the calamity hits, will they remain Catholic, even in the loose and nominal state they are accustomed to being in?

Often the faithful are treated like children, certainly in the general tenor of worship.  We are given sweets instead of nourishment, and if we should raise questions about why we are being asked to shake hands, give kisses of peace, take the Host as if it were a cookie, and from a layman at that, we are patted on the head and assured that all is right with the world.

I admire anyone today who could be attracted to a Church that has become so tawdry and low-class as Catholicism has become in too many eyes.  Balloons and light shows on the Vatican are the cheapest of Hollywood tinsel, while the Low Class Department is well represented by such sterling disappointments as Timothy Dolan and Blaise Cupich.  The converts who come in from time to time must be truly extraordinary people to be able to see through this fog, overlooking the jolt-heads in the hierarchy and recognize what is at the heart of Catholicism, Jesus Christ.  The young men (God help them) who want to be priests - and I'm talking of true vocations - who can live through the hell of modern seminary life and emerge Catholic with their tattered vocation still intact are men to be admired, helped and most of all prayed for.

The average man-in-the-pew who can still remain Catholic after every Sunday - forgive me, I mean every Saturday night - Mass, a Mass which in most parishes is an insult to their intelligence, is also someone to be admired, helped and prayed for.  An average Mass today is a veritable pinnacle of imbecility.  Real men must squirm through this drivel; real women must wish to sink in the pews hoping not to be noticed.  But the shallow, the intellectually vacant or those who just go with the flow, or those - God please help them - who find this stimulating - have absorbed this maudlin mush and have adjusted their religious points of view accordingly, to be current with the prevailing winds blowing icily from Rome, and without a care in the world.

I wonder how we can be of help to these people.  And I wonder how we can cope, too.

To keep sane in these circumstances there are a few things that everyone must do and certainly there is no need for me to spell out to readers here what those things might be.  But I believe one of the primary actions we must think again about engaging in is best described in these remarks from author James Larson:

"The Rosary is our refuge in the Days of Final Deception.
It has frequently and rightly been said that the heart and soul of the rosary is meditation on the fifteen mysteries themselves. This proves a great sign of contradiction to many people. Such meditation is a function of the intellect – of discursive thought and reasoning. It requires a state of concentration on specific facts and concepts which it is impossible to maintain during each Hail Mary recited one after another, decade after decade, mystery after mystery, day after day, year after year. And this is true even with the employment of something like a scriptural rosary. The mind – and the heart which follows it – has a tremendous difficulty being attentive in any really deep way to what might seem endless repetition. This can lead to a great deal of ennui (boredom, weariness, and discouragement). Thus the guilt which I think so many of us experience in relation to our praying of the rosary. We know, at least intuitively, that in order for Our Lady’s Heart to be our refuge, it needs to be that our hearts are engaged with Hers. This becomes very difficult for us to affirm in the midst of dull repetition, distraction, and torpidity. Yes, we initiate and say the rosary with some basic good intention towards God and Our Lady, but this becomes deeply vitiated if we do not somehow find a way to engage our mind, will, and affections beyond this basic “saying”. It would in fact seem very indicative of this problem that good Catholics often speak about “saying” the rosary instead of praying the rosary.
I would suggest therefore that the rosary is far more than just meditation, even though such meditation is integral and necessary for its recitation. I would be very skeptical about any method of praying the rosary which does not, at least in the beginning of a decade, focus at least briefly on the particular mystery and its meaning. But the rosary is a prayer which should engage all the many faculties of our soul, all the way up to and including those moments when these faculties become passive, but fully alert to the infused action of God.
I believe that the key to this deeper engagement is the Hail Mary itself. St. Louis de Montfort wrote, “St. Augustine, surpassing himself as well as all that I have said so far, affirms that in order to be conformed to the image of the Son of God all the predestinate, while in this world, are hidden in the womb of the Blessed Virgin where they are protected, nourished, cared for and developed by this good Mother, until the day she bring them for to a life of Glory after death….” The first part of the Hail Mary, in which we pray “Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus” is not only an act which acknowledges the Incarnation of Christ, but should also be that moment when all our faculties, and especially our simple affection of childlike surrender, follow Christ into the Immaculate Heart of Our Mother, which is her spiritual womb."
If these indeed be the "final days of deception" then the above words are vital.  The rosary will keep us sane.  It will help us withstand everything that is hitting us.

If we sit in stunned silence while Blaise Cupich gives Communion to blatant homosexuals, or Timothy Dolan gives them a cheer and a clapping hand, and we know that Rome doesn't seem to care at all about these outrages, there is the rosary to turn to.

And as I have been charitably reminded from time to time, grace is something we should not be unmindful of.  Brother Andre Marie has a point when he writes:

"Let us never forget the availability of grace and its absolute necessity in the process of conversion and perseverance. When people say things like “you have to just trust that things will work out,” or “God still runs the Church,” etc., it is easy to dismiss them as being pietistic and ignoring the gravity of the situation. Sometimes, those who make that statement are naive about the machinations of perfidious men who are not worthy of trust. If our hope were in men, it would not be a theological virtue. We trust that things will work out in the Church — as in, her saving mission being achieved — not because of men, but because of the promises of Christ."

So, to persevere in such a time as this we still have the gift of God's grace.  In the paragraphs above I referred to those who can still enter the Church, become priests or try to live as Catholics as special people we must pray for.  I need to quickly add that these are not the only ones who need prayer. Souls who are aware of the malignancy that is eating at the Church and the world and who do cling to the pious practices of the eternal Faith are also in need of prayers.  I am aware of many of the evils that are gnawing at Christ's Mystical Body yet I am not so stupid as to think that I am somehow above those who don't see these evils and are perfectly happy with what Catholicism looks like today. I wish to live my remaining days on earth as a Catholic, the same wish I would have for everyone else.

"The Church is bloodied and humiliated today by Her enemies, external and internal, but her unity, holiness, catholicity, and apostolicity are still to be seen for all who have good will."

Brother Andre is correct to remind us of this.

Kidnapped and murdered by America's "moderates"























I met Dany in Beirut. 
Dany is from the ancient Syrian-Christian town of Maaloula. As a soldier in the Syrian Arab Army, he suffered a serious injury during an operation in the Damascus countryside.
This injury could leave him permanently handicapped; now Dany is getting physical therapy in Lebanon and Syria. 
Dany told me a very tragic story about his brother and relatives. 
Back in September 2013 his ancient Christian town of Maaloula was stormed by FSA militias and his brother and relatives, along with nuns from the town, were kidnapped by these "moderate" rebels. Later on Maaloula was liberated by the SAA but there was no trace of Dany's brother or relatives. The nuns also disappeared. 
Then the campaign to liberate al Qalamun mountains started. It was at this time when most of the FSA militias stated that they will be joining ISIS or Al Nusra Front, which means the captives will be handed over to those terrorists group. 
The kidnapped nuns were eventually rescued after joint Syrian-Lebanese negotiations with Al Nusra Front. 
But Dany's loved ones never came home. A month ago a group of Lebanese huntsmen found their bodies in an abandoned cave in the mountains.

The tragedy everybody says they're worried about but really aren't

In my fairly constant review of the daily international news in print and on the web I often come across posts or stories about the sufferings of Middle Eastern Christians.



But the more I read of this the more I am reminded of the phrase, "everybody hates the weather but nobody does anything about it".  In other words, the more these news sources complain about the problem the less they are inclined to do anything about it.

What can they do?  The answer is as easy as it is difficult...for some.  It is easy to know why this is happening if you take the time to look into the causes but it is difficult to write about it once you have found out the answers.  Our fears suddenly take hold of us and we don't want to say out loud what we have discovered.  If I had a penny for every magazine, website, blog, newspaper or what have you that expressed outrage over Christian suffering in the East and ignored the main causes of it I would indeed be a wealthy man.

Mr Doug Bandow gives us some background into the modus operandi of our grandstanding politicians who bellow loudly about Christian suffering even as they make it worse by their policies and affiliations.  Mr Bandow takes aim at Republican blowhards here.  But he is equally at home dissecting the hypocritical Democrats as well in other writings.  He is an equal opportunity offender of both of our useless political parties.  Our Congress is - quite literally - a bought and paid for entity of an illegitimate Middle Eastern country.  And until those tentacles are cut loose, with courage and honesty, nothing will alleviate the sufferings of our fellow Christians in that sad place.

The article below was written during the 2016 presidential race.  His article begins thusly:

On Christmas Eve Senator and presidential contender Marco Rubio penned an article decrying the lack of “attention paid to the plight of these Christian communities in peril.” He criticized the Obama administration and promoted the U.S. Commission onInternational Religious Freedom (appropriately). Rubio also called for diplomatic, financial, and military support for Christians abroad.


Rubio’s concern no doubt is genuine. However, the policies implemented by his party and advocated by him and his fellow GOP presidential contenders have hurt and will continue to hurt Christians around the world. The best that can be said for Rubio is that he may be ostentatiously oblivious rather than calculatingly malicious. In contrast is former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who actively aids Israeli settlers in the West Bank, harming Christian and Muslim Palestinians alike. And Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who last year used a conference of persecuted Christians as a campaign prop to proclaim his everlasting fealty to Israel.

No single policy was as injurious to Middle Eastern Christians as the invasion of Iraq. In this repressive but secular dictatorship, Christians were free to worship and work. The ruling Baath Party was formed by a Christian; under Saddam Hussein a nominal Christian, Tariq Aziz, was foreign minister and deputy prime minister. However, U.S. intervention triggered a sectarian conflict which drove out hundreds of thousands of Christians (many to Syria), spawned a new al-Qaeda organization which morphed into the Islamic State (now killing Christians in Iraq and Syria), and tolerated ruthless Shia rule which encouraged Baathists and Sunni tribes to support ISIL (enabling its unexpected victories). Absent George W. Bush’s Iraq folly, backed by Rubio and most of his competitors, the “murderous terrorist organization,” as Rubio termed the Islamic State, wouldn’t even exist.

The fruits of ten generations of bastardy

Once again four young blacks committed a heinous series of crimes against a white man, a retarded white man in this case.  This kind of thing is so common, so every day, that we are numbed.  We no longer have the strength to express outrage.

http://www.unz.com/isteve/hate-nonhoax/

The barbarity so common among so many of our black fellow Americans has become so open that far too many simply take it for granted.  It happens.  Get over it.  So they tell us.

Yet no on wants to look this problem squarely in the eye.  The problem is simple.  For umpteen generations, young blacks grow up in houses (I hesitate to use the word "homes") with no father. Bastardy is the problem. A strange matriarchal-type society which produces soulless, brutal monsters incapable of empathy and even simple human compassion.  Black women, even successful, working black women, will entertain dozens of black men and the bastards that are born from these unholy unions will go on their own way with no guidance, fraternize with other bastards and soon find themselves committing violent offense before they are fifteen years old. The mothers don't really care how the children grow up. The lazy and shiftless "fathers" are long gone having been replaced by a new "baby daddy" who helps bring into the world other children destined for jail, barbarity or death.

Some years ago I was at an auto parts store in a rather scary part of town and as I was talking to the clerk, a friend, he pointed out to me this outlandishly overdressed dude, complete with gold dangling from every inch of his body, expensive attire and the jaunt of a carefree layabout.  "You know what his line of work is?" asked my clerk friend.  No, I answered.  "His 'job' is getting umpteen females pregnant and then he splits the child support check with them.  Every month, like collecting the rent, he visits all the gals and takes his cut.  He lives very well."  True story, and only one of thousands in my city alone.

Sane people simply are unable to grasp how these people actually live, and prefer to live.  They need no jobs.  Taxpayers supply half their rent, 90% of their energy bills, 100% of their medical/hospitalization needs, ALL of their food, even their shiny new Obama phones.  Why work? And given their well-known allergic reaction to steady work this is a disaster that has produced violent crime, rioting and every manner of insanity.  It also provides the Democratic Party with a reliable voting block, but that's a story for another day.

Yes, some black folks wrench themselves out of this horrible way of living and turn into productive citizens.  Given the circumstances this is almost miraculous.  But these good people are out there.

But I put another case to you.  Also far from uncommon.  My daughter works in a government job where most of the employees are, of course, black, and most of them black women.  She is on good terms with one of these black women, a woman who has two illegitimate daughters already. One day this woman was lamenting to my daughter about the dysfunction of black families; she was sick to death of the murders, the car-jackings, the robberies, the riots, the whole mess. Finally, thought my daughter, a woman like that reflecting seriously on a terrible problem.  About a week later this never married woman went out to lunch with my daughter and happily proclaimed her latest pregnancy.  To her it was the most natural thing in the world to have another child with no father.

Bastardy.  That is the problem

So how does one break a cycle that has been going on in America since the 19th century?  I have no idea.  Some will answer: convert them.  I'm for that, but how do get into a serious talk about such things with a fourteen year old conscience-less bastard who has just committed his fourth murder and is proud of it?  Where do you begin?  How could one even begin to communicate with such a person?  What starting point could be chosen?  What common ground could be found? I have come to the unhappy conclusion that only God can solve this problem.  It wont be solved by education (many do not want to be educated). It will not be solved by throwing more money at the problem.  Only God can solve it. How He will solve it I don't know.

Another true story.  A number of years ago I had joined in the petition drive to recall our two disgusting Senators for their support of partial-birth abortion.  Each of us was to take a certain area and go door-to-door to gather signatures.  I choose a black neighborhood - not the worst one because I wanted to come back home alive but a less chaotic one.  I spent weeks in that area. To my delight and astonishment I received many signatures from black folks.  Lots of them were not even aware of what these two senatorial creeps were up to but when it was explained to them they signed.  Quite a few of them.

There is a goodness and a simplicity in these people which was proven by their reactions to the petition drive.  There is something there that can be built upon.  Unfortunately we have a Catholic Church that is more dysfunctional than the average black family so any help from that quarter will not be coming until God in His good time flushes the Vatican sewer.  But the spark of goodness is there in black folks; I've seen it.

[As an aside, during that same petition drive I knocked on the door of a Catholic church in the area. When the door opened and after I regained composure from the marijuana fumes that flooded my nostrils the young, bearded priest told me to get lost.]

This awful, emotionless cruelty being dealt out to innocent white people by fatherless blacks must be at first recognized before anything else can be discussed.  The news media has done yeoman work hiding these crimes from the general public so don't expect those liars to contribute to any discussions.  God alone can fix this mess.  Customarily he does this through human action. Living right in this hell in a largish American city I have no idea whatsoever how it could be done but I know that God knows and will do so at some point in time.

I hope He will give us a clue soon.

New York Times: It's perfectly OK to kill children

An unsurprising remark from the Times, so passionately devoted to abortion.

On May 23, Navy SEALs attacked the hamlet of al Adhlan, in the Yemeni province of Mareb. US commandos, attack helicopters, and an AC-130 gunship converged on the village and killed seven people, described by The New York Times as members of al-Qaeda in Yemen.
According to Reprieve, a London-based human rights organization, five civilians were killed in what the Times and the Pentagon describe as an al-Qaeda “compound” located deep within the Yemeni countryside.
Iona Craig, writing for The Intercept, says that village residents gave a list of 10 names of civilians killed and wounded during the raid. “Fifteen-year-old Abdullah Saeed Salem al Adhal was shot dead as he fled from his home with women and children. Another child, 12-year-old Othman Mohammed Saleh al Adhal, was injured but survived.”
The Pentagon described the raid as a success. “Operations such as this provide insight into AQAP's disposition, capabilities and intentions, which allows the U.S. to continue to pursue, disrupt and degrade AQAP,” the Defense Department reported on May 23, citing a Central Command news release.
“AQAP has taken advantage of ungoverned spaces in Yemen to plot, direct, and inspire terror attacks against America, its citizens and allies around the world, the release said.”
The Times echoed the Pentagon narrative. “Even after the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, American counterterrorism officials have said the Qaeda franchise in Yemen poses the most direct threat to the United States, largely because of its proven ability to develop plots to smuggle hard-to-detect bombs aboard passenger airliners bound for the United States. So far, three such plots have been thwarted.”

Another dead monster


Another globalist bites the dust, and thank Heaven.

From the article:


Best remembered by the American public as President Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser and co-founder of the Trilateral Commission, Zbigniew Brzezinski has died. Founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller and Brzezinski, the Trilateral Commission embarked on a New International Economic Order based on Technocracy. Brzezinski called this the “Technetronic Era” in his 1970 book, Between Two Ages.
“The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities.”
“In the technotronic society the trend would seem to be towards the aggregation of the individual support of millions of uncoordinated citizens, easily within the reach of magnetic and attractive personalities exploiting the latest communications techniques to manipulate emotions and control reason.”
“Marxism represents a further vital and creative state in the maturing of man’s universal vision. Marxism is simultaneously a victory of the external, active man over the inner, passive man and a victory of reason over belief.”
“National sovereignty is no longer a viable concept.”

The "fruits" of Medjugorje??

"The Holy Father has recently made statements about Medjugorje that have got people talking. Now, these negative statements by the Holy Father have another side to them, as he also made remarks about the possible legitimacy of the earliest messages there. It is also being speculated that the statement the Holy See will eventually release will allow for pilgrimages to Medjugorje as a place of prayer. We have yet to see if such an uncertain trumpet call will be issued, so we cannot comment on it here.

The editorial policy of Catholicism.org runs consistently against the Medjugorje phenomenon, as several postings on our site reveal, the most important of which, because of its doctrinal nature, is “Medjugorje: Another View,” by Robin C. Poe. Miss Poe’s piece exposes the indifferentist nature of messages that been attributed by the seers to the “Gospa” (the Serbo-Croatian word for “Lady,” and the way the visionaries refer to the Blessed Virgin). Brian Kelly has weighed in on the copious “secrets” which have emanated from the phenomenon in his “Scorecard for the Visionaries of Medjugorje.”

There is one point I would like to deal with here, and it addresses a fairly consistent claim I have heard from devotees of this phenomenon in Bosnia-Herzegovina: “But you cannot argue against the fruits of Medjugorje! The conversions, the confessions, the changes in lives and families are too numerous and cannot be gainsaid. You must judge a tree by its fruits, as Our Lord says, and the fruits of Medjugorje are good.”

Amazing that this idiotic plague is still enjoying popularity.  A sad commentary on the intellectual capacity of far too many Catholics who fall for this junk.

Smearing France, Smearing Catholic priests

While I remain unconvinced that the Vichy regime during the war was as bad as it has been pictured Prof Gottfried is right to discuss the truth of the matter.  Leftists will scream but Paul Gottfried sets the matter straight:

Although I’ve long considered the former Bush-speechwriter and AEI and Fox-news fixture Marc Thiessen to be the ultimate GOP-establishmentarian, until this week I assumed he was a person of sound judgment. Most of what I’ve heard Thiessen express as a Washington Post-columnist and Fox-news contributor has seemed reasonable. Besides, unlike our verbally intemperate and ungrammatical chief executive, Thiessen frames his comments with an imperturbable precision. Even in the face of wild accusations from leftist sparring partners, he manages to smile (perhaps superciliously) and responds in measured phrases.
That’s why I found his latest column celebrating the discomfiture of Marine Le Pen, as an anti-Semite with fascist tendencies to be truly unsettling. One might expect such prose from the foaming Ralph Peters, who seems to lapse into rage syndrome every time he mentions a European (as opposed to Israeli) nationalist. But from Thiessen I expected better. Thiessen hammers Marine for asserting that the entire French nation should not be held guilty for a particular misdeed: In 1942 13,000 Paris Jews were rounded up at the VĂ©lodrome d’Hiver and deported to concentration camps. Thiessen cites this as evidence that like her abrasive father, Jean-Marie, Marine is at least an implicit Holocaust-denier. But what Marine said which Thiessen finds outrageous happens to be true. The Resistance leader Charles de Gaulle, the Jewish chronicler of the French Resistance Robert Aron, and more recently, a Moroccan Jewish journalist Eric Zemmour have all made the same point as Marine, namely that it is wrong to accuse the French people generally for the crime committed by the German SS and their Vichy collaborators. Indeed the French saved almost all of the indigenous French Jewish population; the notorious roundup (rafle) that Thiessen mentions only affected foreign Jews, many of whom had fled to France in order to escape Nazi persecution. Zemmour points out that limiting the deportation to this mass of hapless Jews had been the result of a deal struck between the collaborationist Vichy government and the Nazi German occupiers of France. But there is no reason to assume that most of the French supported this deportation.
Indeed the inspiration for the dark view of the French that Thiessen regurgitates comes principally from two sources, the French Communist Party and their leftist successors and the American historian Robert Paxton. In Vichy France, Paxton sets out to incriminate the entire French nation for collaborating with the Nazi occupation. Those who did not actively participate in this regime are accused of “passive” collaboration, a charge that makes about as much sense as the current leftist assertion that all white Americans are complicit in ”systematic  racism.” Zemmour observes that the French translation of Paxton’s work in 1973, plus its sequel Vichy and the Jews in 1981, created in France a replacement for the national history of “the Great Michelet.”  Just as the nineteenth-century French historian Jules Michelet built his chronicle of the French nation around the Revolution, his antifascist successors have worked to instill in French youth a “new doxa.” This replacement dogma stresses national shame, for an evil deed that only a minority of the French were involved in, while their country was being occupied by a foreign invader.

France ready to accept another Rothschild stooge...again

If French opinion polls are to be trusted, the French are preparing to continue their subjugation to International Finance by electing one of its minions, Emmanuel Macron.  Macron, libertine and stooge, will, there is no doubt, do the bidding of the elites and will ensure that the French continue to be debt slaves to swine like Rothschild, Soros and their ilk while allowing themselves to become moral wretches.

Marine Le Pen is on the other hand a mixed bag.  Some of her positions, particularly her anti-elitist ones, are exemplary while others are the usual pseudo-conservative bromides that we heard from people like Trump.  Curiously or perhaps not so curiously after 200 years of anti-Catholic revolution Frenchmen are still willing to continue their personal degradation by even considering an Obama clone like Macron...again, if the polls are correct.  He did win the first round of voting, which does not portend well for France or Europe.  Just as the elites fairly quickly co-opted Donald Trump to do much of their bidding they will not allow a Le Pen to upset their apple cart, a cart which has allowed them to enjoy virtual dictatorial power over a good part of the world.  Hilaire Belloc knew this would come and most if not all of his predictions about the dangers of Capitalism have proven correct: most of the world is now enslaved to International Finance.

What will happen in France tomorrow is important.  But if Macron wins expect more darkness to fall on that great nation, and the world.

Here is an interesting discussion on the French vote:

George Soros VS Catholic Poland


That greedy old bastard and financial manipulator George Soros is back in the regime-change business, not that he ever took a break from such activities.  His latest target is the nation of Poland.

Put simply, this prominent member of The Tribe is continuing the long history of trying to utterly destroy what's left of Christendom (an activity that has been going on non-stop since 33 AD) and making a few shekels in the bargain.  It is a sickening performance but a not unexpected one, since the jackals smell blood in the water now that the Church is teetering on the edge of dissolution.

In God's good time people like Soros will be dead and gone and spending their eternity in the place they so well deserve, and the Church will be restored.  In the meantime it is always good to know what such swine are up to, and one hopes Poland is ready for the onslaught.  [As an aside, Poland would do well to cut all ties to the United States which is a partner with people like Soros.]

From armstrongeconomics.com:

The Polish government wants to stop the distribution of Norwegian money flowing into Poland coming from Soros’ funded Batory Foundation, which manages over 800 million euros with a target of overthrowing the Polish government by 2020. Since 2014, the Batory Foundation has distributed some 130 million zlotys (around 31.7 million euros) to various associations and organizations within Poland to change the government. According to Bloomberg, this includes organizations for the promotion of “parliamentary democracy”,  but only if it agrees with Soros’ agenda. Effectively, Soros is trying to defeat Catholic values ​​in Poland which are supported by the population and government.

Hopefully Good News (for a change): St Nicholas relics come to Russia

From Interfax:



St. Nicholas relics to be brought to Russia from Italy for first time in 930 years on May 21-28

Moscow, April 28, Interfax - The relics of Saint Nicholas located in a tomb in the crypt of the Basilica di San Nicola (St. Nicholas Basilica) in Bari, Italy will be brought to Russia from May 21 to May 28, 2017, Metropolitan Hilarion, head of the Department for External Church Relations of the Moscow Patriarchate, told reporters.

"It is a unique event as the primary relics have not left the town of Bari throughout the 930 years during which they have been kept there," he said.

The relics of Saint Nicholas will be brought to Russia as part of an agreement reached between Pope Francis and Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia during their historic meeting in Havana on February 12, 2016, he said.

"Hundreds of believers of the Moscow Patriarchate come to Bari every year to worship the primary relics of Saint Nicholas. However, it is difficult for the majority of Orthodox people in Russia to perform such long-distance pilgrimages. Pope Francis and Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia hope that a prayer near the miracle-working relics of the saint will help strengthen the faith in people's hearts," Metropolitan Hilarion said

Lament for a deeply wounded Church

Some things cannot be expressed in just words.  Sometimes they can only be perfectly expressed with the aid of music.

Miserere mei, Deus, by Gregorio Allegri :






This music, normally heard during Holy Week, is just as appropriate now as we witness the ongoing Crucifixion of the Church of Christ.

Cardinal Joe Tobin: You make me ill



I believe that's putting it clearly enough.

You are a disgrace to the Church, a disgrace to your Cloth, a disgrace to your simple humanity.

Perhaps you are just a befuddled nonentity trying to make nice with the Big Boys.  Perhaps you are just a plain, simple ignoramus (your photo would suggest that).  You pester and belittle simple priests trying to do their jobs, the typical ploy of cowards and bullies.

Go back to what you know best: mowing lawns, selling women's shoes, bagging groceries, whatever.

Fred Reed analyzes the First Transgender President

Says Fred:

Oh Lord, it’s happening–the remanufacture of Trump by the Establishment. During the campaign, Trump and the Basilisk had nothing in common but their hair dye. Now, almost daily, he looks more like her.
He gets embarrassing. Regarding the alleged gassing in Syria, quoth Donald:
“When you kill innocent children, innocent babies — babies, little babies — with a chemical gas … that crosses many, many lines, beyond a red line. … And I will tell you, that attack on children yesterday had a big impact on me … my attitude toward Syria and Assad has changed very much.”
God almighty. Who wrote this–a middle school girl with C’s in English, or the President of the United States? Did he retire to his bedroom for a good cry?
Apparently he ordered his missile strike without bothering to find out what happened. The usual suspects are driving him like a sports car.
The election was a choice between fetor and a lunatic. We chose the lunatic. Whether this was better than the alternative, we will never know, but Trump is going from bad to worse, or as the Mexicans say, de Guatemala a Guatepeor.
Does he believe this stuff? Is he naive enough to think that there was something unusually horrible about the attack? Horrible, yes, but not in the least unusual. Do you know what everyday, boring artillery does to children? Five-hundred-pound bombs? Hellfire rockets? Daily Mr. Trump’s military and his allies daily drop shrapnel-producing explosives on people, cities, towns, adults, children, weddings and goatherds in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen. Good draft-dodger that he was, he probably has never seen any of this. Good psychopath that he may be, he may not care

Frankenfish



Capitalism Run Amok Dept.


We are now entering the realm wherein an already insane Frankenstein-inspired corporate mentality has gone completely off the rails and entered into very, very dark territory.

These people are certifiably crazy:

Genetically modifying living things for no other reason than to increase corporate profits, public health notwithstanding.

They are stark, staring mad.

The New World Order of the Pope's Good Friend

Here is a longish - and quite revealing - interview with the Pope's good friend, Jeffrey Sachs, a man we ignore at our peril.  We bring it to your attention so that we can better understand the mindset of those who are committed to remolding the world to their own liking and in their own image.

In his exaltation of a "new world order", Mr Sachs, whose arrogance is really a sight to behold, minces few words as he lays out his vision for what he wishes to see in the very near future.  For Catholics, it isn't pretty; for the sane, it isn't pretty.  For Mr Sachs, it is just glorious.

Pope Francis is apparently a friend and confidant of Mr Sachs.  Given what this papacy has been degenerating into this is hardly surprising.   Yet still, it pays to understand what goes through the brain of people like Sachs, who is a well-connected man very much at home with the ruling elite who work behind-the-scenes to destroy the last vestiges of Christendom.  The video is a bit over an hour.

We give you Mr Sachs:

What about Syria's Christians ?

An interesting article which goes into some depth about who it is in the Syrian mess that is rooting for the killing of its Christian population and who it is who is defending them.

If we talk much here about this terrible conflict it is because we hate injustice.  It is really that simple.

From Russian Insider:

Easter is the holiest day in the Christian calendar. For Christians, Easter is the ultimate victory of God over Satan; a permanent victory, a kind of cosmic check-mate.


But for Christians in Syria, this Easter has a special meaning: Victory over those who have sought, with western backing, to destroy them. 
"Responsible" media outlets never speak of it, but anyone rooting for regime change in Syria also supports the murder of Christians. Syria is secular state that has been fighting terrorists and jihadists for the last six years. If Assad goes, Syria's Christians will cease to exist.
