The Lust For Power Subverts The Gospel
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – “Then there’s the stream of consciousness of nationalism that runs through this. Ms. Mullarkey is infected with the nationalist bias that so many others are infected with. They mean well and they intend well, but they regurgitate and they eat, sleep, and breathe ‘Muricah somehow as being the equivalent of the Kingdom of God. It’s not.” Check out today’s transcript for the rest….

It is worth noting that CCHD partly funded Barack Obama’s time as an Alinsky-style organizer on Chicago’s South Side . . .
Francis’ personal popularity is largely a function of public perception of him as a doctrinal liberal. But as Americans recognize in Francis an advance man for “world authority”—the concept of a mega-state cached in Vatican minds through recent pontificates—affection for the man will not stay hostility toward the workings of his church.
What has been called “the last respectable prejudice” is on track to gain enhanced respectability among Americans who blanch at what they see as a shakedown by the refugee resettlement industry. They are dismayed by a pope who would confuse “a nation under God” with a nation under the sway of his own bien pensant ambitions and those of clerical bureaucrats. Power lust, no matter the pious packaging, subverts the Gospel. It does not serve it.
Poised for a comeback, Blanshard’s specter of an alien presence takes on solidity with every act of Francis’ disregard for the ordained limits of papal authority.
Mike: “Maureen Mullarkey is an artist who writes on art and culture.” A couple things where I take issue with her, number one, if she’s going to write about the horror or the hideousness of Pope Francis going to meet with Rouhani of Iran and condemn him because he was smiling when he met him, what’s he supposed to do, go in there as the dower Christian, as the dower Catholic that hates everything that moves and gives rise to the urban legend? Here’s a question, Ms. Mullarkey: What was St. Francis Assisi supposed to do when he went and met with the pasha who was the general of the Mohammedans’ army to go try and convert him? If you want to take issue with him, maybe he didn’t try to convert Rouhani, I’m all with you. That’s why the meeting should have taken place. Don’t confuse that with he shouldn’t meet with the world’s tyrants. Who else can, for Heaven’s sake? I would take issue with that.
Then there’s the stream of consciousness of nationalism that runs through this. Ms. Mullarkey is infected with the nationalist bias that so many others are infected with. They mean well and they intend well, but they regurgitate and they eat, sleep, and breathe ‘Muricah somehow as being the equivalent of the Kingdom of God. It’s not. To even equate it, [mocking] “Well, this is a sovereign entity.” No, you don’t understand sovereignty, madam.

Why would that matter? Well, the power to tax you is the same power that would be used to not tax you. It’s the same power that would be used then, that you extended to your state for certain very extreme measures under the subsidiarity concept. You need to build a road. All right, you can build that road. We need to have a capitol building. Yeah, you can have a capitol building. Do we need to have a department of this or that or the other? Maybe, maybe not, but if we do, we’re going to have to raise revenues for the government. These are all things, ladies and gentlemen, that were all done by and still are done by the individual states, by individual counties in the states, and by cities that are inside those counties. You look at the tier of subsidiarity and where your ultimate authority lies is in where the government is closest to you, where it acts upon you the closest.
That’s not my preference. That’s actually the preference that came out of what we know as republicanism. You can actually read this. You can read the letters of Thomas Jefferson after he left the presidency. He bemoaned the fact that republicanism was dying on the vine. Jefferson wrote over and over and over about: My preference is the agrarian lifestyle. My preference is that we have agrarians and that we have them in very small towns or republics no larger than the size of a town in New England.

Where should the power for the immigrant, to who gets to come in and not? By the way, I’m getting clobbered in the phone call derby again today. Back to where we started, which is with the ascendency and the phenomenon of Trumpzilla. What is Trumpzilla’s principal, one of the big issues that people said they were going to vote for Trump for? He was going to kick all the immigrants out. He was going to stop new ones from coming in, including Muslims, which should be done. He’s going to put a wall up to make sure that no one else can get in. Again, there’s no constitutional authority for a wall. We’ll leave that on the side, should the US have a policy of not importing any more immigrants.
Well, we should then move our conversation to who has the authority to do this to discussing what they should do with that authority. I’m going to skip mostly to the end of this, this essay written at The Federalist. It’s right next to Maureen Mullarkey’s – I think it’s probably a coincidence. This is a rehash of a book that was written back in 1973 called The Camp of the Saints.
When The Camp of the Saints first appeared in English in 1975, a review for The New York Times declared that “reading Jean Raspail’s novel The Camp of the Saints is like being trapped at a cocktail party with a normal-looking fellow who suddenly starts a perfervid racist diatribe.”
Mike: Remember, you can’t be, ladies and gentlemen, opposed to immigration and not be a racist.
