What these people want to put our poor country through next

From journalist Daniel McAdams:

One of the most depressing things about watching — even from a distance — the quadrennial race for the White House is seeing what passes for debate on the one area where the president does have some Constitutional authority: foreign policy.
Candidates who have spent little or no time studying or traveling to the rest of the world, and, in the fashion of many Americans in the age of Empire, see the rest of the world as just a series of US colonial outposts, apparently consider foreign policy unworthy of serious consideration.
So little do Republican candidates care about foreign policy that most of them have “outsourced” their foreign policy to a single neocon-dominated foreign policy shop called the “John Hay Initiative.”  If you wonder why most Republican candidates sound exactly the same on foreign policy, it’s because they are nearly all getting their advice from the same people.
When nearly all candidates look to someone like Eliot Cohen, a founding member of the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), to provide an off-the-shelf foreign policy, it should be no surprise that the “debate” in the Republican party is only over which country to attack first.
Any candidate who thinks so little about something so important as America’s place in the world should be automatically disqualified.
But the neocons love it! The “experts” who brought us the 2003 Iraq war and the Libya “liberation” are still in the driver’s seat when it comes to foreign policy.
“Jeb!” has John Hay Initiative members Michael Chertoff and Michael Hayden (remember those crooks?) on board as his advisors.
Marco Rubio reportedly draws from Hay Project member Roger Zakheim, the son of GW Bush administration “vulcan,” Dov Zakheim. Zakheim père, we remember, joined with his fellow neocons to lie the US into war with Iraq, enriching the military-industrial complex, before absconding to the “private sector” to make his millions from the same military-industrial complex. Zakheim quickly and quietly left his position as the Pentagon’s chief financial officer after a trillion dollars went missing and the Government Accountability Office was critical of his handling of matters.
Scott Walker, a soporific candidate who nevertheless still gives neocons like Bill Kristol the vapors, also shops the neocon Walmart of foreign policy, the John Hay Initiative. It should be no surprise, then, that at his big foreign policy coming out speech at the Citadel military college Friday, he unveiled an “aggressive” foreign policy — crying out “America will not be intimidated. And neither will I” — as he promised more war and vowed that “the retreat is over!”
Is this the retreat he is talking about?

First it was "ms" and now it's "ze"

Since everyone has so happily and unthinkingly accepted the ridiculous appellation "ms" to describe ladies married or unmarried, I'll bet that it won't be long until the same unthinking ones (including Catholics) will start using "ze".

What to do when someone uses these idiocies?  Give them the withering mockery they so richly deserve, as this blog has always done since it began in 2011 A.D. [Note to those in the Vatican: "AD" signifies "Anno Domini", marking the central historical event in all human history.  We know that many in Rome have now adopted the Jewish "CE", but we thought that perhaps you needed a reminder.]

The Hounds of Hell must be laughing themselves silly at the collective mindlessness of the world.

Will Finland succeed in reversing the Poof "Marriage" Law?

Momentum is gaining in Finland to repeal the atrocious law that was recently imposed upon them. I wonder if little Finland will show the world the way to say "no" to Big Buggery.

The website Mass Resistance has the details.  From the article:

Late last year, as we reported, the Finnish Parliament narrowly passed a “gay marriage” law. As we’ve seen in so many other places, proponents used an aggressive, undemocratic strategy that allowed no parliamentary debate, discussion, or amendments to push the bill through its final stages. Within a week, over 12,000 people had resigned from the Finnish Lutheran Church over its Bishop’s pro-gay marriage remarks.
But last April’s nationwide elections changed the political landscape. A new Parliament was elected.  The top people in government are openly pro-traditional marriage. As a result, the Finnish pro-family movement has ignited across the country to get the bill repealed. Over 70,000 people have already signed a special petition to get it before the Parliament. And to counter the “gay” propaganda, they are out educating the population and the political leaders about the consequences of “gay marriage” for society.

Pray for little Finland.

Dear lovely Finland, don't soil your beautiful land with that filth

Horse's Ash Carter Talks Tough

The Secretary of Defense???

Where do these idiots come from?  I really, truly, want to know.  Are they from Mars, or do they emerge, like all war profiteers, from the deep recesses of their own strange minds?

This clown wants to have a nuclear war with Russia.

Look at his views philosophically: being a mandarin of the military-industrial amalgam, which makes him immensely rich, lots of American dead bodies are not something that troubles him overmuch. US soldiers are a dime a dozen, so Mr Carter can live with a couple of hundred thousand body bags being sent home, presuming there is enough left of the soldiers' bodies to get sent back.  And since that doesn't weigh too heavily on his conscience, the sight of obliterated US cities probably wouldn't either.  He will, after all, be safely ensconced in his well-protected underground bunker while the rest of us, a la Hiroshima, are roasted to death.

Surely there is an asylum somewhere, with thickly padded cells, where we could find a place for Mr Carter?

An additional padded cell needs to be reserved for this guy:

Church Music: The Balance Between Sound and Silence

I and my family have the great privilege of being able to avail ourselves of the beautiful, powerful, haunting Ancient Rite of the Mass on a regular basis, every day of the week.  It is the kind of privilege one would not trade for anything on earth.

The good priests who say this Mass do so with exceptional reverence and minute attention to the rubrics and there is no complaint that could possibly be made as to that.  Curiously though, the religious order to which these priests belong demands Masses, High and Low, to be adorned with wall-to-wall music, in the case of the High Mass a full choir and organist (understandably), and the Low, strangely enough, with virtually non-stop organ music(incomprehensibly).  We drown in music at this parish, especially at the Low Mass, a Mass in which one would normally expect a few moments of contemplative silence.  (We have discussed some of these issues on this blog before:

Can there be such a thing as too much music in an Ancient Rite Mass?

When is too much, then, too much?

A blogging colleague, the fabled Dad29, has offered some compelling thoughts on the subject of Church music, when it is right and when it is wrong.  With Dad's kind permission I reproduce here his essay.  ["Dad29" is the nom de plume of one of the state's most distinguished Church musicians, an artist in the front rank of his profession.  His thoughts are not those of the amateur and, therefore, are to be valued.]


There are dozens of Church documents which mention music in the liturgy.  Almost all of them give a nod--or more--to Gregorian Chant as the 'preferred,' 'first,' or 'primary' music of the Roman liturgy.  And that preference is, to one degree or the other, ignored.  Oh, yes, there is a movement afoot to restore (instaurare) Chant to its place as the principal song of the Church.  And yes, EF communities utilize Chant quite a bit.

We all know that Chant is sung, of course.  And we all know that Chant really should be un-accompanied.  And most of us know that Chant comes in two varieties:  the relatively simple, easy-to-sing, 'congregational' Chant of the Ordinary of the Mass, and the more elaborate, sometimes quite challenging, Proper chants.

But this is not really about what Chant is.  It is what Chant is NOT that is important here.

Chant is not accompanied.  Chant is not continuous--that is, each Chant has its place and has no more than just that place.  It is not entertainment; it is not bombast, it is not 'filler.'  Most important, it is not imposed upon the Mass--rather, it is PART of the Mass.

What can we learn from this list of 'nots'?  We can learn that the music most strongly recommended for use at Mass is part of the Mass itself.  Negatively, then, we learn that that's all the music that the Mass really  'needs.'

Uh-huh.  So what?

There is a tendency among church musicians to 'fill every hole with music.'  That's not surprising, I suppose.  It's probably related to the old saying about problems:  if you have a hammer, every problem is a nail.  And if you're a musician, music is the solution to every need, whether that need is real or merely perceived.

Therein lies the rub.  Chant teaches us simplicity, and about the value of silence.  It teaches us that the priest, congregation, and schola (or choir) have their own roles.  It teaches us where music MUST be, and where it does not HAVE to be, and it teaches us that music for the Mass is really quite subtle.

Little of that is understood in our time, where continuous music has been imposed on us by the psycho-motivators of Muzak, the commercialism of Itunes (and the multitude of competitors), and our own inability to exist comfortably with ..............silence.  It is somewhat ironic that "The Sounds of Silence" was not silent at all, and was played all. the. time. on commercial radio, no?

Locally, a misguided parish priest ordered his music-critter to "play something" for 10 full minutes before the beginning of each Mass.  That order was given in order to get deh pipples to shut up when they entered the church.  It was the right reason, but the wrong solution, for the music-critter's repertoire is largely drawn from hotel-lobby/bar entertainment stuff--French impressionist--and it cannot possibly convey the sense of "church."  Worse, it feeds the fire of Muzak-psych.   This is compounded when the music-critter stuffs the communion "space" with keyboard riffs on hymns, then with the official 'communion hymn,' and sometimes an additional choral or congregational piece.

(The priest himself should have told deh pipples to shut up, of course--but he has an overpowering need to be adored and liked, so he chose the wrong solution.) 

In the EF (Old Rite), the music-critter will impose music even more freely because in that Rite, the priest does not 'speak' the Canon.  Since silence is The Vacuum Which Must Be Filled, organ music will be heard, and the Vacuum At Communion will ALSO be filled, often right to the brim, with mo' music.

Please!  Shut Up!!  Take the un-stated but obvious advice of Chant!

Less is more, folks.  Silence is golden.  God's voice is still and small.  Maybe HE should be heard, eh?

Bishops May Need Their Own Version of Alcoholics Anonymous

Pondering what to do in this ever more palpable calamity confronting Holy Mother the Church, and not wanting to constantly dump on and criticize every Bishop who opens his mouth, I am thinking that there may be a need for some variation on Alcoholics Anonymous, or "AA", to help defuse this awful situation.

AA will tell you that the first thing an alcoholic has to do is to admit he has a problem.  The same would hold true to those addicted to drugs or pornography.  I suspect there are a fair amount of Bishops and priests who inwardly sense that something is dreadfully wrong but cannot or will not confront the causes,  Here is where Catholics who are aware can perhaps be of some help to these people.  I believe we must find opportunities to sit down in a relaxed, non-confrontational manner with our clerics and help them to see that by refusing to admit there is a problem, their refusal will bring the Church as we know it to the point of collapse. If we can but help them start that process of realization we may just be able to help stop the insanity that is engulfing the Church.

A tall order, to be sure.  But not, I think, an impossible one.  This blog has been constant (some would say, too constant) in its criticisms of Bishops, the type who give the impression that they are not in the slightest bit interested in acting like true defenders of the Faith.  Perhaps it is time to face the cold, hard facts and finally write them off.  To wipe the dust off our feet, so to speak.  They are not going to change.  They will go to their graves, a la Bernardin, proudly contemptuous of the ancient Faith.

As for meeting with wavering or frightened Bishops and priests this, I think, is a job for the men, at least at first.  Men are pretty much dismissed nowadays in Church circles - odd for an institution that has an all-male priesthood - and are generally ignored or bypassed when big parish or chancery decisions are made.  That's a bit of a generalization, I know; but if we look at any parish bulletin and cast our eyes over the names of those who hold much of the decision-making powers in parishes or, ominously, parish councils, I think you will see my point.  Clerics are terrified of women and even more terrified of media opprobrium so it should hardly be surprising to see the ladies dominating.  This can be a very bad thing, if the ladies are of a progressive or feminist bent.  A priest or a Bishop, then, confronted (politely but firmly) be men who are concerned about what is happening to the Faith, the world, the education of their children and a thousand other things can be an eye-opening experience for clerics who are accustomed to weak yes-men or liberal ladies who like to take charge.  I suspect it will be a refreshing eye-opener for these clerics; gutsy men cannot be twirled around the little fingers of domineering types.

If men don't act like men, the women will start acting like men, and then the world turns upside down.  The enemies of God's order know this very well.  Extremely well.  So well that we are now reduced to having mincing homosexuals, and transvestites who mutilate themselves, essentially calling the shots (or so they believe; they are actually the pawns of the decadent elite).  For a simple but strong, humble yet firm man start to defend Faith and family by sitting down with priest or Bishop could be the turning point in this whole onslaught against sanity which has encircled us.

And the women?  Instead of the types who wish to dictate orders as chairmen of corporations or parish councils we want a lioness who will tear apart anyone or anything that threatens her cubs. That is a force to be reckoned with.  And a team to be reckoned with: a manly man defending Faith and family and a woman doing the same.

We are not quite at the point where such teams are the norm.  At times it seems the only ones defending the Faith at parishes are the gals, while the men are off flipping pancakes at the parish breakfast jamboree.  It does not have to be this way.  True, most men are bored silly by the effeminate, silly liturgies they call "Masses" today.  They sit in pained silence as little lasses dress up as altar boys, or are forced to mumble the most atrocious, eye-rolling hymns.  They desperately try to find a few minutes of meditative silence at these Masses and find none.  They cannot wait for it to end so they can beat it out of there and do something manly.  It is especially difficult for men if the priest is one of these prissy idiots who sits on his rump while every female in the parish from 8 to 80 finds themselves up at the altar singing, reading, or co-consecrating - or giving out Holy Communion to every pair of dirty hands that are thrust in front of them.  Men instinctively recoil at such nonsense.  I am speaking about real men here, of course.

So, men, having read all this, what do we do?

If I may offer a suggestion, start by finding if you can a reverent liturgy to attend.  I recommend the historic, ancient Rite of Mass as a first choice if at all possible.  I believe that will start our manly wheels turning in our aging brains and might just rekindle our sense of who we are and what our responsibilities are.  I suspect that that, coupled with some solid spiritual and historical reading will help us along the road until we are finally, at last, prepared to assume our rightful roles as defenders of our families and the Holy Catholic Faith.

Which brings us back to those meetings with Bishops and priests.  Let us help them, like AA, recognize that there is a problem.  We cannot allow them to continue blithely on as if all is right with the world and there is nothing to worry about.  If we approach them with humility and respect and a firm purpose we may just be the Alcoholics Anonymous that they so desperately need to lead them away from this destructive-to-the-Faith attitude they have.  I think the more Bishops we can convince, especially now with this horrendous Synod fast approaching, that there is a problem the more likely we are to have some impact, small though it may have to be.  Trees start out as acorns, as they say.  

What do we do if we are rebuffed after politely trying to show them the problem?  Every one will have a different answer for that.  As for myself I wouldn't necessarily burn any bridges but I might make them clearly aware of my displeasure over the Church's failure to protect Her flock.  I would remind them of the sufferings my children and grandchildren will endure at the hands of an Empire of Sodomites.  I would remind them of the millions of souls who will never see God when they die, despite what the Urs von Balthasars and Robert Barrons may believe.  I would remind them that a General protects his troops and a father protects his children.  More than anything else I would leave him with the impression that a manly man has confronted him.

If on the other hand they show sympathy, then give them all the encouragement and espirit de corps that the situation calls for.  Work with them.  They may be ignorant of the richness that the Church offers; after all most of them were probably taught by incompetents or worse in seminary.  When the time comes you will know what to do and how to help them.  God's grace will provide.

Paul Gottfried: How the GOP plans to knife Trump (most likely right in the back)

Like many I am watching the Republican meltdown over Trump with great amusement.  This has nothing to do with Mr Trump either as a person or as a candidate.  It has everything to do with watching these phony "conservatives" being exposed for the lackeys for the Money Power that they are.

The great Paul Gottfried details how the big money guys are planning to get rid of this gadfly.

A sample:

Watching and reading the MSM for the last few weeks, it’s become obvious that frustration is setting in among establishment talking heads who would love to be rid of Donald Trump as a presidential candidate. Despite the Donald’s rudeness in ridiculing the media and establishment candidates in both official parties, this pesky contender just won’t go away. His poll numbers continue to rise in the face of venomous hatred. Every time GOP old guardists  George Will andMichael Gerson call for “marginalizing” the influence of Trump and his followers, his popularity surges even higher. Not even the snobbish insult that his supporters never went to college (unlike Scott Walker, for whom Will’s wife works and who dropped out of Marquette University after one semester) has halted Trump’s march toward the GOP nomination. A supposed candidate of the illiterate, who graduated from from the Wharton School of Business, Trump has double the poll numbers of his nearest rival, who is Ted Cruz or Ben Carson, depending on who’s doing the polling. The onetime favorite of the GOP establishment Jeb Bush, seems to be fading in proportion to the megabucks that billionaires and the Mexican government have been throwing at him.

A great article, the rest of which can be read here.

The Judaizing of Father Guido Innocenzo Gargano

Like the Judaizers of old, Father Guido Innocenzo Gargano, Biblicist and patrologist, would have it that Jesus Christ Our Lord, who gave us a New Testament to replace the Old, would approve of divorce, perhaps out of the "hardness of heart" of His people, as Moses had done.  Is it not nice to know that finally, after two thousand years of study, experience, living and teaching the Faith Christ bequeathed to us that the Church has been wrong all along, and has now finally, at long last, thanks to Father Gargano, discovered the truth?

The world must marvel that it took two millenia for the Church to finally get it right, and by a wonderful and strange coincidence Father Gargano's revelation comes just in time to support the thesis of Cardinal Kasper at the upcoming Bastard Synod, the Synod of Sodomy, the Sin-Nod (h/t Restore DC Catholicism), the Synod of Delusions, the preternatural calamity that the Modernists have in store for the world.  We must thank God that He has given us Father Gargano's revelations just in time to lend support to the gravediggers of Holy Church, the one's who will pound the final nail in the coffin.

Sandro Magister reports:

The exegesis of the words of Jesus on marriage and divorce made by the Camaldolese monk Guido Innocenzo Gargano, a famous biblicist and patrologist and a professor at the pontifical universities Gregoriana and Urbaniana, is more and more at the center of the pre-synodal discussion.

In his judgment, in the kingdom of heaven preached by Jesus there is also room for those who today might continue to make use of the faculty of repudiation granted by Moses on account of “hardness of heart.”

After that exercise in patent nonsense we are therefore grateful that Magister prints the deafening rebuttal to the gangrenous Gargano by the excellent Father Gonzalo Ruis Freites (providentially, a Spaniard), a rebuttal which will appear in book form.  But here a few examples from Father Freites:

The teaching of Jesus on divorce and remarriage, present both in the synoptic Gospels and in the writings of Paul, is unanimous and definitive and forms part of the revelation of the New Testament, received and faithfully guarded by the Church. This is a teaching of divine-apostolic origin, absolute and universal, that prohibits divorce and, in the case of the remarriage of one who has divorced, considers the second union as adultery. 

The hypothesis of Father Guido Innocenzo Gargano has no support in a serious exegesis of the texts he has studied - in their literal sense, in the immediate context, and in the entirety of the revelation of the New Testament. His is a failed attempt, moreover, because he has selected the texts that he wanted to consider on the basis of his preconceptions and not of the precomprehension of the faith of the whole of the New Testament. He has also studied them in an exceedingly partial manner, without the slightest exegetical analysis of the texts or their context. Finally, he has forced them in order to draw conclusions that are in accord with the preconceptions with which he began.

We are reminded of the words of St. Jerome, when he teaches that the one who studies the sacred text must adhere above all “to the exact interpretation,” and that “the duty of the commentator is not that of presenting personal ideas but rather those of the author who is being commented upon.” Otherwise, he adds, “the sacred orator is exposed to a grave danger, one day or another, on account of a mistaken interpretation, of making the Gospel of God the Gospel of man.”

Even I am dumfounded at the blatant Judaizing of people like Gargano who seem to have forgotten that the Old Law is no more;  It was replaced.  It is gone.  Kasper and his mandarins mean business, however, and with an essentially dogmatically illiterate Catholic people drowning in apathy they are going to prevail unless our pleas to Heaven can bring a Divine Intervention to stop these madmen.

Clarity and Courage from a Bishop

The good Bishop, Athanasius Schneider, again offers courageous clarity in a new interview;

Bishop Schneider: Those clerics who encouraged the faithful to vote for same sex marriage revealed themselves by this same fact as false prophets, as those who pervert the Word of God. They revealed themselves as public liars, to whom are fully applicable these words of Holy Scripture: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter” (Is 5:20) and: “Your prophets have seen for you false and deceptive visions; they have not exposed your iniquity to restore your fortunes, but have seen for you oracles that are false and misleading” (Lam 2: 14). To such priests and bishops the Apostle Paul without any doubt would say today these words: “Such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ” (2 Cor 11:13). In order to remedy this situation it is firstly necessary that faithful Bishops teach clearly and unambiguously the truth of Christ and correct explicitly the teaching of these false prophets.

The interview is here:

15 August 2015

From St John Damascene:

"Even though your most holy and blessed soul was separated from your most happy and immaculate body, according to the usual course of nature, and even though it was carried to a proper burial place, nevertheless it did not remain under the dominion of death, nor was it destroyed by corruption. 

"Indeed, just as her virginity remained intact when she gave birth, so her body, even after death, was preserved from decay and transferred to a better and more Divine dwelling place. There it is no longer subject to death but abides for all ages."

For myself, I will only add this plea:

Forgive, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the sins of thy servants;  and may we, who are unable to please Thee by our deeds, be saved by the intercession of the Mother of Thy Son, our Lord.

[Collect, Mass of the Assumption]

Blase Cupich, Effeminate and Appalling

Your Excellency,

We have all read your remarks on the Planned Parenthood Horrors.  I'm afraid you opened the door on this one.  Do not be surprised then by the blasts of freezing air that hit you.

In today's Church it would take some doing to be worse than the late, unlamented homosexual Joseph Bernardin, a man whose crimes, public and secret, are now being dealt with by a just God  (I would like to say that I hope he made his peace with God before he was taken from this life but the fact that he specifically requested a homosexual men's choir to sing at his funeral  leaves me in doubt).  I feel we can ask, does Your Excellency wish to bring Chicago down even lower than it is, devastated as it was by Bernardin and his mincing friends?

Your remarks concerning the criminal and ghoulish activities of Planned Parenthood have been remarked upon by many.  They are appalled by what you said.  I join them in their disgust.

Your remarks reek of effeminacy. The Church needs men, especially in its highest ranks, and not prissy do-gooders like yourself who would not dream of offending anyone at all, even at the risk of their immortal souls.  It is a sad truism in the corporate world that those who toady the most (or worst) toward higher power are the ones who rise to the top.  Your remarks indicate such a mentality, I'm afraid.

I tell you now, Blaise Cupich, that every one in Chicago who loses his soul due to your repugnant statements and your indifference to spreading the Catholic Faith will be brought before you the minute you die, when you face God and your final judgement.

And God's judgment is final.

The Athanasius Schneider Interview, an excellent translation

I believe most everyone is familiar with Archbishop Schneider's recent interview.  We offer here a superior translation from the website.  Having read two other versions I believe this one is perhaps the best currently available.

If I could add a note:

Some have been critical of Msgr Schneider over this interview for various reasons.  I cannot share that criticism for the very simple reason that given the delicate situation in Rome right now Schneider has shown himself to be not only wise and prudent but a friend to those who are terrified at what is happening in the Church.  If His Excellency "...could observe a sound theological, spiritual and human reality"   in his meetings with the SSPX surely this should give us reason to pause.  Instead of showering him with criticisms I think showering him with a few decades of the rosary now and then would be a better idea.

The Rabbi's Call for the burning of Catholic churches

Gilad Atzmon reports on this here:

From the article:

Reported by Gilad Atzmon  ~  Commentators on modern Jewish history are often puzzled by the animosity of secular Jews toward gentiles. Particularly puzzling is the scale of Jewish ‘revolutionary’ violence towards Christianity and churches in particular. It is no secret that Bolshevism set many churches ablaze. The International Brigade followed a similar pattern in Spain (1936). It is an established fact that Yiddish was the lingua franca of the International Brigade that was formed following a tidal wave of Church burning by the Republicans. That act of barbarism didn’t seem to deter the salt of the Jewish Left who rushed to liberate Spain in the name of the ‘International’.  And yet, historically, this kind of barbaric act was never associated with rabbinical Judaism.
Apparently, this is not the case anymore. In the Jewish State, Orthodox Jews do burn churches and they do it in the name of the Torah and in accordance with their interpretation of the Jewish religion.
In an unusually brave article, Ynet revealed yesterday that, Bentzi Gophstein, the head of Lehave, an Orthodox Jewish organisation dedicated to preventing assimilation in the Holy Land, said that he unquestionably supports burning churches and ‘houses of idolatry.’
Gophstein further stated that church burning is a legitimate act under Jewish law.

The Witches of 2015

(From the 1962 film, "Jack the Giant Killer")
In his classic book The Everlasting Man, G.K. Chesterton made the following observations when referring to "black magic":

" may be noted as not irrelevant here that certain anti-human antagonisms seem to recur in this tradition of black magic.  There may be suspected as running through it everywhere, for instance, a mystical hatred of the idea of childhood. [My emphasis.] People would understand better the popular fury against the witches, if they remembered that the malice most commonly attributed to them was preventing the birth of children".

A more succinct description of the mindset that animates the contraceptors, the abortion advocates, the sodomites and now the mutilators of adults and little children could hardly be found.  They are the followers of witchery, actually, if you stop and think about it.  Their hand is tipped when we begin to realize that it is the diabolical hatred of children and the very idea of childhood which consumes them.  Chesterton saw this all nearly a century ago.

Children are the target.  And they always were.

The Psychopaths March on Syria

Israel and Washington want Assad out of Syria.  Assad protects the Christians of Syria as well as all the others.  Therefore, he must go.

In September, 2013 the media and government unleashed a 24/7 propaganda campaign to make the US public accept an unjust aggression against Syria, a nation that has done us no harm.  Many fell for the lies including, I am sad to report, far too many Catholic websites.  All was in readiness and the military was on full alert to destroy a country that protected its Christians.

Then something happened.  The Pope called for a day of fasting and prayer to stop America's proposed slaughter.  The Pope wrote to President Putin of Russia for help in averting this disaster.  Mr Putin wrote a letter to the New York Times asking, with great politeness and admirable humility, that America re-think what it has been doing of late.

In addition Putin immediately brokered a deal with Syria to have all its chemical weapons destroyed.

The US public at last wanted no more wars.  Europeans started to back away from the American war frenzy.

America was stymied.  But not for long.  Soon a mysterious group of savages suddenly appeared in Syria and elsewhere, who came to be known as ISIS.  We now know that they were equipped, trained and financed by Israel and America as a proxy army to target the regimes they wanted to change.  And so this group of US-created fanatics started their reign of terror.

Revenge was swift upon Russia, too.  A few months after the Syria massacre was stalled a coup was financed, arranged and carried out by the USA and its proxies in Ukraine, and their legitimate government was overthrown, leaving the country in the hands of US backed bankers, pederasts and fanatics.  One doesn't mess with the monkey with a hand grenade, as one statesmen recently described the US government.

Now the revenge is complete.  The spolied brats in Washington have now openly declared that they will fire on Syrian troops to safeguard the "rebels" - the "rebels" being the proxy Israeli-US fanatics trying to oust Assad, an imperfect man but nevertheless a protector of Christians.

Fr Marcel Guarnizo schools the Clown Prince of the Church

I am very happy to see this.

Cardinal Dolan needs to be called on the carpet very badly and it is good that a Catholic priest has taken up the cudgels on behalf of Holy Church and put this irresponsible man in his place.

Read it here:

Dolan, who has been silent as a tomb when it comes to baby murderers and sodomites, allows his poorly-formed judgement on the immigration issue to be spread all over the world.  He cares nothing for accuracy, indeed even honesty.  His attack on Donald Trump is the most shameless piece of politically correct grandstanding it has been my displeasure to watch.  And that's saying something.

That the Pope of Rome allows these episcopal blowhards to run around and speak their idiotic opinions unchallenged says more about him than the blowhards in question.

Dolan needs prayers,  But he also needs to be fired from his position of authority, and the sooner the better.

Father Guarnizo also needs prayers because revenge-hungry mandarins will really be after his scalp after this.

Thank you, Father, for what you have written.
