Sapientia et Veritas –To the most representative minds of the Reformation, as of the Middle Ages, a philosophy which treated the transactions of commerce and the institutions of society as indifferent to religion would have appeared, not merely morally reprehensible, but intellectually absurd. [emphasis mine: M.C. Editor] Holding as their first assumption that the ultimate social authority is the will of God, and that temporal interests are a transitory episode in the life of spirits which are eternal, they state the rules to which the social conduct of the Christian must conform, and, when circumstances allow, organize the discipline by which those rules may be enforced. By their successors in the eighteenth century the philosophy of Indifferentism, though rarely formulated as a matter of theory, is held in practice as a truism which it is irrational, if not actually immoral, to question, since it is in the heart of the individual that religion has its throne, and to externalize it in rules and institutions is to tarnish its purity and to degrade its appeal… They cannot collide, for they can never meet.” – R.H. Tawney, Religion And The Rise of Capitalism

Will You Go Teen Vogue, Cosmo, Insert Murican Sex Apostasy Here, Or Will You Learn About Then Go Carmelite? – On this day in 1794, 16 beautiful French women were marched to the scaffold built around the Guillotine in Paris. The women were each singing, in Latin, the Veni Creator and were members of the Carmelite order of Compiegne. Their story is told by me in brief in today’s Church Doctrine which is available here. Father Henderson, who is a member of the Fathers of Mercy order tells the complete story and why its important today in this video. What’s interesting about that is the Fathers of Mercy was the first religious order approved of in France after the end of the French Revolution.
Our Contraception Nation’s Latest, Proud Moment: Say Hello To 401[k] Children – The parasites at The Center For ‘Murican Progress have developed an online calculator that alleges to provide young people with a method to calculate the cost to their 401[k]’s of having children. Assisting with this quantitative madness is the allegedly Catholic, Villanova University’s professor Scott Dressler. Saint Thomas Villanova must be doing somersaults in his grave. ““Look at all these long-term expenses built in to leaving the workforce. Even if you only made enough to cover childcare, you would still be better off working because then you wouldn’t lose increases in wages and 401(k) contributions” opines Dressler who apparently has not been made aware of the Church’s teaching on $$$ and children that Villanova University certainly must know. Pope Paul VI reminds adults that one cannot place a price-tag on having children because children contribute to their parent’s holiness! “As living members of the family, children contribute in their own way to making their parents holy. For they will respond to the kindness of their parents with sentiments of gratitude, with love and trust. They will stand by them as children should when hardships overtake their parents and old age brings its loneliness.” Is there a calculator for the pursuit of holiness and does it accept VISA/Materscard?
DeceptiCONNED: “Conservatives” Opened The Door For The Iranian Conquest of Iraq – In a provocative series of pieces that have been published since Fox News’ Tucker Carlson’s public rebuke of Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters, the reality of what the U.S. intervention in iraq created is being revealed for what it has produced: a chaotic Iraq that is now the subject of Iranian manipulation. But wait, wasn’t Iraq’s conquest and the toppling of Saddam Hussein supposed to bring paradise like peace and stability to Iraq and “the region” so ‘Muricah could manipulate the Iraqis into becoming our western-most state!? Rod Dreher has a roundup and makes an interesting observation: :That doesn’t make Tucker Carlson right. It does make him more credible, though.” What!? Carlson is the lonev voice of reason and sanity on the all-war network, Fox News, when it comes to ‘Muricah’s lustful actions in “the region”. What does Carlson gain in that crowd by dueling it out with Peters? The affection of 200,000 supporters of Ron/Rand Paul? Watch the video of Carlson’s argument with Peters and decide for your self if he’s on the “right-side” of history.
Peak Amazon Has Arrived – It is a telling sign when “investors” in the dubious “investment” vehicle known as a “hedge fund” announce that they are going bear market on you b ecause your business practices and sizes are straining ethical bonds and that is what has happened with Amazon. To add insult to injury, socialists in Congress like Bernie Sanders, are rattling regulation sabers as if they have an answer to amazon’s looming specter. “Is Amazon a productive change agent and force for the good of the consumer by virtue of a reduction in product prices? Or is Amazon’s disruption of the general retail business a destroyer of jobs, moving previously productively employed workers into the unemployment line?” he asked.” This continues my discussion on this from the POV that the manufacture, sale and delivery of food cannot be monopolized without grave consequences for society. And now, amazon is poised to assault the shipping industry and destroy it, replacing it with “Prime-Air”. Somewhere, ian Fleming is rolling in a grave, lamenting the fact that he never lived to see one of James Bond’s global conquesting villains come to life. Ian, meet BezosfFeld.
All Hail The “Activist Mommy”, Single Handedly (with me & Jennifer Hartline) Taking Down Teen Vogue Pederast Perverts – A Vlogger known as the Activist Mommy bruned a stack of Teen Vogue magazines and is calling on people to CALL, yes, use that thing called a phone for something other than FaceBook, the INJustice Department and rat out the Teen Vogue pederasts. “Call the DOJ and ask for Paul Adams in communications 202-514-9870. Leave a message that Teen Vogue is pandering indecency to minors.” All Hail, Activist Mommy!
The Republican/”Conservative” Leviathan Cometh, Welcome To Big Government 2.0! – Since John Boehner and his band of fake “conservatives” took control of Congress in 2010, we’ve been chronicling the truth that Mordor on the Potomac river is a living organism with built in protection mechanisms that will defy if not kill any effort to stunt its dominance and growth. Still, “conservatives” have deludecd themselves that there remains some magic combination of politicians and policies that can and will tame the beast and restore God-made rainbows over the capitol. Uhhh, how ’bout no? How about we start dealing the reality that the GOP has actually GROWN the size of government and is a powerless to stop it. The news is out that last month was the greatest month for Mordor spending in history. EVER. Let that sink in. The union of states fought a war against one half the planet from 1941-1946 and never spent the kind of money it now spends fighting a war against hobgoblins of its own making. One of the self-inflicted wounds driving this bullet train to fiscal perdition are student loans, a bubble that we’ve been warning must burst and will take the “economy” down with it. ZeroHedge Is on the case: “since the $1.4 trillion and rising student debt bubble is expected to end up with discharges of 35% if not higher, it means that over the next several years, the budget deficit will be incrementally boosted by approximately $500 billion as America’s taxpayers are once again taken to the cleaners, this time to bail out millions of liberal arts majors who for one reason or another just can’t pay back their student loans.”
We Have Finally Reached Peak Fake News, Pass The REAL Bacon! – Has the Star Wars, social media obsessed public (discussed below) finally consumed so much cow intestine disguised as “news” that it has finally realized it is eating tripe and not flank steak? The WSJ thinks so.
I Bet James Woods Doesn’t Have A Subscription To Teen Vogue – The internet is all abuzz over James Woods meting out some honesty to child abusers disguised as “progressive parents”.
This is sweet. Wait until this poor kid grows up, realizes what you’ve done, and stuffs both of you dismembered into a freezer in the garage pic.twitter.com/1k3ITApFsF

It Was 40 Years Ago Today, George Lucas Taught The Kids To Stray… – Much has been written and said about the 40 years of movie-making, post Star Wars, most of it tending towards idolatry the way that talk of football today tends toward QB salaries. Little has been written or said about the space cowboy genre that Star Wars created and the anti-intelligent movie making that is its demon-spawn. Sean Fitzpatrick peels a layer or two of this onion back and correctly reminds us that entire genres of film that are based on realities that never can or will exist is not healthy for the intelligent stimulation of the yewts. “It is a Marxist principle that man is determined by his technologies, his means of production, and the technological trappings and cultural impact of Star Wars are emblematic of what man’s attentions have been seduced by. The box offices collect millions upon millions of dollars to provide a prison of escapism. People who hunger for fact gorge on fantasy; and they come away confirmed only in their confusion and reinforced in the roots of their malady. There is a constant search for distraction from a gnawing sense of un-fulfillment, of being lost, of groping for affirmation in a culture that has lost touch with those realities that are intrinsically meaningful.” Read the whole thing here.
The TrumpCare Non-Repeal, Repeal Bill, Exposed By Senator Paul – Rand Paul continues to be the lone voice of constitutional sanity in the “conservative” controlled Congress. Watch…
The Medical Industry’s Diabolical War On Children & The Future – Pediatrician Michelle Cretella has had it with the medical “professionals” who have thrown ethics and oaths overboard in favor of riding the LGBTQ wind to paradise. In an article titled I’m a Pediatrician. How Transgender Ideology Has Infiltrated My Field and Produced Large-Scale Child Abuse Dr Cretella blows the rainbow colored whistle on the diabolical behavior of her profession. “These harms constitute nothing less than institutionalized child abuse. Sound ethics demand an immediate end to the use of pubertal suppression, cross-sex hormones, and sex reassignment surgeries in children and adolescents, as well as an end to promoting gender ideology via school curricula and legislative policies. It is time for our nation’s leaders and the silent majority of health professionals to learn exactly what is happening to our children, and unite to take action.” Indeed. Oremus.
The Media Industrial Complex’s War On Children & The Future – The Australian reports the grim news that Australian, teenage girls, have been showing up at gynecologist & pediatrician’s office’s with physical damage done to their reproductive parts as a result of sex they consented to have that emulates sex seen in porn. Rather than propose that perhaps a program of moral revival based upon abstinence and 2000 years of moral teaching be tried, the “experts” take issue with the porn, if only they can “fix” that, then the kids will have “normal” sex! “Dr Tyler said tackling the problem is not easy but it’s time educators had a more realistic conversation with young people about what they’re seeing online. “You can’t pretend pornography doesn’t exist,” she said. “I think we’re getting somewhere in that there’s more public discussion about it (but) we’re going to need to start talking about more serious and comprehensive sex education.” Yes, trot the now 30 year old “kids are going to do it” mantra and call for better viewing instructions for the porn. This amounts to gross negligence not only morally but physically. When will PARENTS hold their hands up and say “stop”?!
Teen Vogue, Predator. “If It Bleeds, We Can Kill It”!? – I asked the question on yesterday’s show: why is there no outrage at what Teen Vogue magazine has done pimping anal sex for 12 year old girls as “healthy…perfectly natural”!? No one responded to my query (shockuh!) but Jennifer Hartline was thinking the exact — same — thing. “When is Enough Enough? Really, when are we going to get righteously angry and say “No more!” Why are the people determined to corrupt our sons and daughters so much more zealous in their mission than we are in our obligation to protect them?” Bingo. Instead of “conservatives” rallying to the ramparts to save the kids they obsess over Donald Trump Jr.’s email triage with the Russians and the status of TrumpCare™ in the Senate. If the industry that is fake conservatism isn’t illustrated to you by this ongoing, all-out-war now being waged against children, what will?
Teen Vogue Insures Earth Will Be Visited By a Very Large Asteroid, Soon – In what can only be described as “OK, what is NOW left for them to pervert” Teen Vogue Magazine has published an epic how to guide for, wait for it, Anal Sex and “How to do it RIGHT”. But don’t worry parents and morally upright citizens, there is no pressure to read the Vogue story because there’s so much other awesome, sex advice goodness to sample. “If you’re not comfortable reading about anal sex, that’s perfectly OK too. We have plenty of other articles around a variety of issues and wellness. Feel free to click out if you’d like! No pressure at all.” No pressure at all! This from the crowd that claims “pressuring” children to keep score at baseball games has run its course. And these days there is certainly no pressure for 14 year old boys to act like something other than sex starved, porn addicted Vikings who might return to the bedroom with a girl if she’ll “take one for the team” so to speak. Message to Teen Vogue’s editor’s investors and now subscribers, this is your future:
You’ve Got [Russian] Mail & Therefore You’re A, Ummm, A Friend of a Russian! – The latest pathetic line of interrogation aimed at the Trump Presidency is an email sent from someone who may or may not have stepped foot inside the Kremlin once upon a time and therefore is a Russian operative who helped Trump slay the Nephilim spawn of Satan and Margaret Sanger, Mrs Clinton. The NY Times, breathlessly reports that not one not two but THREE PEOPLE! claim to have “seen” the email in question. Well, that’s prima facie evidence of collusion worthy of a CNN headline. Witness: “Before arranging a meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer he believed would offer him compromising information about Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump Jr. was informed in an email that the material was part of a Russian government effort to aid his father’s candidacy, according to three people with knowledge of the email.” Now for the conclusion of the accusation. “There is no evidence to suggest that the promised damaging information was related to Russian government computer hacking that led to the release of thousands of Democratic National Committee emails.” Well, that was certainly damning, now wasn’t it?
Can Trump Make Viagra And The NFL Great Again – The most shocking news of the day is that we may have reached Peak Epicureanism as Viagara annouces it will NOT advertise on NFL games this season!
Why Boys Don’t Grow Up To Be Men, Part 7,673 – The town of Nederland CO apparently could not find a suitable male role model and leader for their high school football team aka “Coach” so they employed a woman who has little football experience but is fantastic with Pentax camera lenses! What can possible go wrong?
The Real Deplorables: Those Trumpistas Executing The U.S.’s War In Syria – I have been talking about this since McCain et al were foiled in their 2013 effort to force Dear Leader, Chairman MaObama to declare war against Syria: the Congress’s refusal to declare war only “officially” denies that war. As Philip Giraldi makes the point today: Make no mistake about it, we are AT WAR IN SYRIA and because we’re ‘Muricah, we’re deluded that it is a Just war (it is not): “Sometimes referred to as America’s “civil religion,” one can also call it “American exceptionalism” or the “leadership of the free world” or even “responsibility to protect” but the reality is that a broad consensus has developed in the United States that enables serial interventionism with hardly a squeak of protest coming from the American people.” Any flag waving Trump booster who believes that Trump’s Presidency spells an en end to the Leviathan’s tyranny, need only remember H.R. McMaster’s Wednesday confession to the world, reported by the WaPo: “We have to be very clear that the reason we are in Syria is to destroy the ISIS [by] denying them a safe haven and support base [for their] perverted ideology”. Trump is but another pawn of Ba’al’s in the U.S.’s never ending wars that prop up the Industry of Death. Oremus….
Will You Go Childless Or Will You Go (laity) Carmelite – The news out of Germany’s government is not good nor is it surprising: the Krauts have achieved Lucifer’s eugenicist goals without Hitler and have actually de-populated their civilization to the point of making Krauts minorities in the Krautland city of Frankfurt. Now, 51.2 per cent of Frankfurters are not native Frankfurtarians, making real a prediction made by many including Mark Steyn, that the Old World/former Christendom would commit generational suicide; refusing to start families and instead opt for more gadgets, travel and homosexuality. Unfortunately the Mohammedan hordes, didn’t sign the memo.
hCNN’s Failure: If You Lusted For a “Post-Christian Society”, This Is What It Looks Like, Congratulations! – When I turned CNN off for good last August, I did so by publicly stating that any pretension to “objectivity” they previously had was gone. The alleged “catholic” Chris Cuomo’s, daily, nay hourly, ravings against candidate Trump based on nothing but hearsay followed by analysis of Trump via that hearsay, with “questions raised” that were more like hysterical accusations was not funny, not entertaining and left me feeling like I’d been visited by a demon. Turns out I was. hCNN has continued on this diabolical road to perdition by not just manufacturing #FakeNews but by also, membah-membah!, employing the apostate atheist Reza Aslan to regale viewers with footage of apostate cannibals eating human brains and keeping the sadistic Kathy Griffin on its payroll until public demands resulted in her dismissal. Now the scandal of manufacturing news that a Trump aide was in bed with Russian criminals finally has hCNN allies in evil dismissing them with today’s WaPo leading the charge. Folks, this all is a direct result of the near total collapse of the influence of Christian ethics. Many of you poo pooed my previous exploration of this topic but now it should be apparent that mere “media bias” is NOT at work here. This lack of ethics is demonstrated in the fact that the previously unthinkable has become far too routine.
hCNN’s Failure Pt II – The #FakeNews Perps Didn’t “Resign” They Were Fired – Considering the above, check out the NY Post’s reporting that the 3 reporters responsible for the Scaramucci “scoop” did not gallantly defend the integrity of journalistic ethics and truth, “resign” their positions but were actually fired by CNN execs mortified that this all too routine, ethical breach, might derail their being consumed by AT&T. “Sources also said the three journalists responsible for the retracted story — reporter Tom Frank, editor Eric Lichtblau and Lex Haris, who headed the CNN Investigates unit — were urged to resign. “They called them in and said they’d pay out their contracts, but they should leave immediately,” one source said. Zucker was afraid of facing a high-profile suit from Scaramucci while the US Justice Department weighs the proposed $85.4 billion media merger.” So the ethical breach I described on today’s show (listen to this show here) was accurate yet indicative of something more morally diordered than I thought. CNN Millennials actually believe what they do for “a living” is morally just! You just can’t make this stuff up folks:
Meanwhile, a CNN insider said staffers are furious at “having lost the moral high ground because of this story.” Sources said Zucker tried to rally his staff during a Tuesday morning conference call.
Moral high ground!? This from the broadcast outfit that campaigned against Trump but more despicably FOR the Nephilim spawn of Margaret Sanger and Lucifer himself: Mrs. Clinton!? If there’s “moral highround” there, it must be the same highground of Golgotha, up on which Christ was crucified. If you want to know what a “post-Christian society” will look like, you don’t have to wait, just turn on CNN but be prepared with Holy Water and blessed salt.
Marxist Sodomite Vampire Flashback-How To Raise Future Sodomites – Just click the link and let the “I can’t believe I just saw this” fun begin. Thanks Canada…
Rand Paul Was Right About Olson Johnson Being Right… AND Syria Too! – The SINGLE, occasional voice of sanity that remains in the Dumbocrat Infanticide Party, Rep Tulsi Gabbard, has introduced the appropriately titled: Stop Arming Terrorists Act. As the American Conservative’s Gareth Porter concludes, even IF you think that ‘Muricah has a “strategic interest” in the affairs of the cauldronic Mid-East, the current weapons sales make no sense whatever. “The significance of all this is clear: by helping its Sunni allies provide weapons to al Nusra Front and its allies and by funneling into the war zone sophisticated weapons that were bound to fall into al Nusra hands or strengthen their overall military position, U.S. policy has been largely responsible for having extended al Qaeda’s power across a significant part of Syrian territory. The CIA and the Pentagon appear to be ready to tolerate such a betrayal of America’s stated counter-terrorism mission.” To say nothing of the heinous immorality of gilded age riches, pumped like water into olympic sized swimming pools, being lavished on ‘Murican “defense contractors”. We—Are—A—War—Like—People.
If Clothes Really Do Make The Man Then What Are Men Made Of in Cargo Shorts And Crocs? – Some of you may have noticed my change in sartorial choices over the last 3 years and even more so since we started on YouBoob everyday. To tell the Truth, I actually enjoy getting dappered up for the show everyday and enjoy even more, the stares I get i public because I am am vested with a bow-tie. “What do you think he does for a living!?” they whisper. Gotcha. Now comes G. Bruce Boyer with this magnificent piece of history that gives a chronology to the “era of casual” and how it came about, it is a must read. Boyer’s quest begins thus “How is it that we have gone from wearing suits and ties to the office to wearing T-shirts, baseball caps, and a variety of military garments and ranch hand wardrobes? Everyone who’s ever perused photos of baseball games (or almost any other crowded venue for that matter) in an old Life magazine from the mid-twentieth century finds it remarkable that the majority of men in the crowd are wearing white shirts and ties, and business hats (a category of menswear now extinct).” His conclusion is that a society that has no regard for the dignity of dress, loses regard for the undignified poor and thus charity toward them. Bingo.
It’s July 2017 And The Immodesty Is About To Go Nuclear Because It WENT Nuclear – Venerable Bishop Sheen called out ‘Muricah back in the 1960’s while speaking to a group of young Catholics on “Youth and Sex”: “8:15 in the morning, the 6th of August, 1945, when we flew a military plane over this city, when we dropped that atomic bomb on it; that bomb on blotted out boundaries. There was no longer a boundary between the military and the civilian, between the helper and the helped, between the wounded and the nurse and the doctor, between the living and the dead. For even the living who escaped the bomb were already half dead. So we broke down boundaries and limits and from that time on the world has said we want no one limiting me. … You want no restraint, no boundaries, no limitsI have to do what I want to do. Now let’s analyze that for a moment, is that happiness?”
The Tragedy of Post Christian, Philosophia Perennis Devoid Thinking – Read this piece from AmConMag writer Noah Millman to get a closeup view of why Philosophia Perennis is so desperately needed to corral the erroneous thinking Men are sure to engage in when NOT grounded in the eternal quest for True Wisdom i.s. Sapientia. The issue Noah, is not whether “only the Saints” can live by the Magisterial code, it is that by God’s Grace the Saints DID live the Tradition WHILE receiving the Graces needed to do so. You cannot approach Grace as zero sum, mathematics, as in if I do ______ I will receive ______ “Grace credits” but if I do ______I will have deducted ______ Grace Credits. Grace is present in the world and we are given the supply needed at Baptism, the suffering of the Christian Faithful is simply to maintain the state you enter at Baptism, using the Gospels and the Traditional Teaching as MEANS to that END. As Padré Gaetano tells us in Humility of Heart: “And has not a saint abundant reasons, from the thought of his own weakness, to live always in a state of great humility, when he knows that from one hour to another he may lose the grace of God and the kingdom of heaven which he has merited by years of laboriously-acquired virtues? “Unless the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it.”
