Sapientia et Veritas –“The cornerstone of all conservative thought is that man is a creation of a supreme and divine Creator. A firm commitment to an objective truth which animates the soul of man and gives him purpose; the symbiotic mutualism of the dignified individual and the quest for community felt by all members of humanity; and the understanding of jurisprudence which is nothing less than the continuing symphony composed by our Medieval forebears—these are the elements of the Conservative equation, and the ones which require our attention and commitment.” – Matthew Johnson, The Cornerstone of Conservatism
THE MIKE CHURCH SHOW IS NOW AVAILABLE TO LISTEN TO LIVE! ON APPLE’S ITUNES RADIO!
Listen To The Mike Church Show Live! – EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING FROM 5:00 – 11 AM.
It’s The HOMOclericalism Stupid – Pope Francis is now acting like an American Democrat politician; blaming and executing babies instead of treating the mortal sin of illicit sex; or calling a lack of health insurance a lack of health care. Here’s my meme offered as a fraternal correction to the Holy Father.
This Is Why I am A Trump 53%er – On August 13th President Trump pole vaulted the Congress’s RARE, correct actions in reagrds to Saudi Arabia and Yemen THEN the President did a jig around and sidestepped one of the few times the SCOTUS got a case it should have and ruled on it correctly, striking down Newt Gingrich’s Constitutional turkey that was the “line item veto”. Bruce Fein fills in the details.
“Trump’s NDAA signing statement decreed that the 50 provisions unconstitutionally encroached on the president’s prerogatives as “Commander in Chief and as the sole representative of the Nation in foreign affairs.” Accordingly, he would treat them as of no force or effect despite his signing them into law.”
The infamous “signing statement” was also used by President Obama and is a claim of Presidential power that doesn’t exist. This is just another of the 5 TRILLION reasons why we should never stop our campaigning for independent Louisiana, Texas, New Hampshire and yes, even Vermont (h/t Bill Kaufmann!).
The Moment You Realize You’re A Fat Bastard And You Don’t Want To Be One Anymore – Harry Kazianis tells the story of his eureka! moment when he decided that gorging on ‘Murican fast foods because they tasted so yummy was going to kill him.
Liberty Heresy or Give Me Death [penalty]! – For all of August I have happily toiled under the disapprobation of many liberals who view my insistence that the Catholic Church’s teaching MUST always include the embrace of the State’s right to kill in some circumstances – like when a Jewish carpenter needs to fulfill prophecies and save the human race from Hell – but I digress. I have stated and have been echoed by regular guests Michael Hichborn and Brother André Marie that the heresy of denying the licit death penalty is the first step in the liberals last campaign: end Catholicism by rendering Her constatnt teachings not constant i.e. She becomes she as just another “denomination”. Now comes Michael Pakaluk connecting the dots to the #HOMOclericalism scandal the Church is being Passioned through right now.
“We can expect that any bishop who, from his stance against the death penalty, has fully embraced the attitude that punishment is never retributive, but only deterrent, will fail to protect his flock by appropriately punishing offenders. He will misapply the standard of proof for criminality, moving it from past to future crimes: ‘Indeed, Fr. N. did, beyond a shadow of a doubt, fondle the genitals of that young man, but, unless it can be shown beyond a shadow of a doubt that he will do something like that in the future (and the experts won’t say this much), then he should not be punished.’” [emphasis mine-MC]
Put another way, there is a perfect logic in the pure administration of the Catholic Faith that Man cannot alter unless he suffer the pain of corruption which will ALWAYS lead to error and sin. THAT is what is happening now and has been since the Modernists’ infiltration and THAT is why, pushing this false flag of “clericalism” as the cause is as bone-headed as something Nancy Pelosi might do…. see ObamaCare, TARP, Dodd-Frank etc
Afghanistan Proves, Sadly, We Are A War-Like People – What possible merit remains for the United States military to remain in enemy territory in Afghanistan as year EIGHTEEN looms? This is one of my biggest disappointments with President Trump thus far, not putting an end to the death and destruction in that country and its horrific effects for tens of thousands of families here in the U.S. As Robert W. Merry points out [again!], this futile effort must end.
And yet the American war machine keeps rolling along, year after year. As Chivers writes, “The policies that sent these men and women abroad, with their emphasis on military action and their visions of reordering nations and cultures, have not succeeded. It is beyond honest dispute that the wars did not achieve what their organizers promised, no matter the party in power or the generals in command.”
Travel to Mordor and witness what I call Crane City and all will become apparent; the wars must continue to fund the construction of the military contractor industry that now controls over 25% of all government spending and is a cultural juggernaut.
Buchanan: Time For Trump To Send The Rest of The Brennanites Packing – Patrick J. Buchanan, may not have out it exactly like this but that’s the point.
With four million Americans holding top-secret clearances, and this city awash in leaks to the media from present and past intel and security officials, it is time to strip the swamp creatures of their special privileges.
What Buchanan may not be seeing though is a population the size of Germany is reliant upon those clearances and the obscene “defense” spending they require. MILLIONS of “careers” are dependent on the “deep state” so in reality, a massive unemployment wave would coincide with Buchanan’s wish. I pray to see miles of unemployment in Mordor….soon.
The Manly Response To McCarrickGate: Restore Hatred of Sin – The lack of masculinity in the lives of the ‘Murican people has reached epic proportions and nowhere is that more evident than in the Catholic Church of which I am a member but that is now changing. Bishop Morlino of Madison, WI diocese has issued a letter to all his flock, priests included, exhorting the faithful to a hatred…. a hatred of SIN that is; Glory be!
“If you’ll permit me, what the Church needs now is more hatred! As I have said previously, St. Thomas Aquinas said that hatred of wickedness actually belongs to the virtue of charity. As the Book of Proverbs says “My mouth shall meditate truth, and my lips shall hate wickedness (Prov. 8:7).” It is an act of love to hate sin and to call others to turn away from sin.”
Someone Tell Pocahontas That Socialism Is For Dummies – Here are a pair of images that demonstrate how much cold hard, Venezuelan cash it takes to buy household commodities.
Venezuela is a by definition, socialist country that as the evidence shows, doubles as a banana republic where everyone faces starvation and squalor save for the people that are the top of the socialist food chain. Someone needs to show these pics to Elizabeth – Pocahontas – Warren who has proposed the most imbecilic piece of legislation since the TARP bailouts: The Capitalism Accountability Act. “Milka-wha….!?” Kevin D. Williamson lays out the details of Warren’s scheme.
“Under Senator Warren’s proposal, no business with more than $1 billion in revenue would be permitted to legally operate without permission from the federal government. The federal government would then dictate to these businesses the composition of their boards, the details of internal corporate governance, compensation practices, personnel policies, and much more. Naturally, their political activities would be restricted, too.”
All this besides the fact that I have proven dozens of times on the Mike Church Show: there is no such thing as “capitalism”. There is capital that can be freely exchanged for goods, trades and services but that doesn’t equal an “ism”. I would love the chance to debate Senator Warren with G.K. Chesterton as my muse ala Distributism!
“Cancellation, Yay!” – Michelle Wolf’s “show” on Netflix is cancelled so the “Celebrate abortion” queen will have to find a new diabolis media pimp to air her campaign against the soon to be born. Countdown to Hcnn picking this up in 10…9…8…
“I’d Pay To Watch That On TV” – If you’re as old as I, then you can recall it being discussed that the execution of certain serial killers, if broadcast, “I’d pay to see that on CC TV!” Now comes Father Z with a timely essay: Time To RE-impose Degredation of Apostates In Religious Orders – What of the broadcast on TV angle, where does Father Z think that might be permissable in the Catholic Church? Read on…
Some of you have opined that the Rites of Degradation should be brought back and publicly televised. As I read the “praenotanda” of the rites, everything to be prepared ahead of time, I find some indications that televised would be exactly what the Roman Pontiffs would have wanted, had they had television. How do I claim that? In the preparatory notes I read about the treatment of errant clerics: “However, there could be (as it is considered to me more appropriate) an active degradation, performed thusly. Firstly, some prominent place with enough space is to be prepared in public, outside of the church, for carrying out the degradation…” [emphasis mine-MC]
The point is to incite terror upon the hearts of those seeking ordination to the priesthood so they know what practicing sexual perversion in that office will bring them. This is the kind of masculinity the Church used to exhort her clergy to live by; a sort of death penalty for failing the souls you were charged with saving as a representative of Christ himself. Amen, Father Z., amen.
Priest Says That if Papa Francis Will Not Act Against McCarrick & His Gang, He Must STEP ASIDE – I’m sure exactly where Stella Maris (Star of Mary) Parish is in SC but I want to go there and meet Father McInerny. Fr. McInerny has penned a letter then turned it into a petition that demands the American College of Cardinals to compel Pope Francis to act swiftly and decisively against the Bishops and cardinals responsible for the heinous crimes detailed in the PA Grand Jury Report. Fr. McInerny:
“If Pope Francis is unable or unwilling to effect the necessary reforms, we hereby petition you to exercise your office and invite him to step aside, after the example of Pope Benedict, to allow for the election of a Pontiff who can and will effect true reform starting with the Roman Curia.”
THIS is the kind of masculine, real world action Catholics are longing to see from their priests. God bless you Fr. McInerny! Oremus.

FLASHBACK-In July, 2015, The Remnant Newspaper Profiled The Mike Church Show – Membah…membah!? Fast forward to November of that year and Chris writes a followup “Too Catholic For Satellite Radio”. Thanks to Papa Francis deliberate attempt to bring an end to the Catholic Church by claiming he can change dogma (the licit Death Penalty), I am becoming #Too Catholic For Lukewarm Catholic Radio. Ferrara wrote the following which we at the CRUSADE Channel studio still believe is True and pursue improving it every day.
“Indeed, over the past year or so Mike Church has emerged as the only traditionally Catholic conservative in talk radio today, anywhere in the world. And I mean traditional. Not only during my appearances on the show, but now thematically, Mike has turned the longest running political talk show on Sirius Radio into an unabashed presentation of the Social Kingship of Christ, traditional Catholic moral teaching, and even the traditional Latin liturgy as the solution to what is evidently otherwise a terminal civilizational crisis. I have been invited on the show numerous times to defend all of these things explicitly, to speak of the one true Church, and even to call upon conservative Protestants to enter the Church if they are serious about saving our nation and our civilization.”
Thanks to you, fair reader, we have the chance to continue that fight but I am in constant need of your assistance, click here to chip in.
Roman Catholic CRUSADER Men Unite – Fr. Richard Heilman of Roman Catholic Man and the Rosary Novena For Our Nation is my special guest today, if you haven’t registered, you can sign up at rosarycoasttocoast.com
We, in the United States share the conviction, now seen and acted upon in the International community, to enter fully into the spiritual warfare we are facing and to pray for our respective nations at this watershed moment in history. We hear the clarion call of the Holy Spirit, through the Immaculata, and each of us sound the reply:
“I’m Going In!”
Father Heilman tells me often, “Mike, we have a supernatural weapon on our side, we gotta use it” and over the next 54 days we will. Consider joining my confraternity The CRUSADER Knights of The Most Holy Rosary, an elite group of Marian knights organized for the specific purposes of making illegal the scourge that is abortion, contraception, sodomy, pornography and usury. This devotion has already produced a magnificent blessing from my 9 day novena to Our Lady at Walsingham; I believe there is much more for you and me to do, so join me and others across the continent today!
Need To Listen To The Pearcing Truth’s Series On Economics As If Families Mattered – The Federalist headline screams the current state of our civil, “economic” affairs. Yo, Big Business: Money Doesn’t Give You A Right To Manipulate Politics. It doesn’t? Then are you ready to begin implementing a system of Distributism, solidarity and subsidiarity? While ‘Murican Government has become the national religion, business and the exchange of money for pleasure and profit have become her powerful parishioners. Since we rarely know the people who grow or make our food or anything else for that matter, business has become a ubiquitous, requisite agent for exchange of what we want, mildly tempered by what we are willing to borrow to get it. Micro systems of barter exchange are gone, save for the rare entities that have carved out niche markets serving the locals, folks we used to call friends and neighbors. My ongoing feature series with the author of Small Is Still Beautiful, Joseph Pearce, delves heavily into this subject and is MUST LISTENING for anyone truly interested in avoiding Amazon et al from controlling the food supply and thus what is acceptable, secular behavior to get it.

The book’s stories are harrowing from the point of view that bodies and lives are being physically altered with no chance of repair. This is being done, allegedly, to bring about a more fairer world in which those born into the bodies of the sex they believe is not for them. But what is fair about having your breasts cut off while being doped up with drugs that get you banned from any professional sport? This is the work of Beazelbub and the boys and the poor souls who undergo these mutilations are the prizes.
The Religion That ‘Murican Politics Has Become – When Donald Trump as President, shows up at a rally to commemorate or promote something, the event takes on a religious tone; think about it. Before the President – the priest – enters the temple – the speaking stage – prayers are recited in unison – the Pledge of Allegiance – then an opening canticle is chanted – the National Anthem – then the priest makes his procession to the altar – the dais with the holy crest of the office of the President – then the priest begins “the mass” – making the political pronouncement and explaining why it is good for the congregation. When “the mass” is finished, the choir strikes up a driving beat of a “patriotic song” which serves as the post communion hymn and then the congregation takes leave to go and evangelize the gospel they just took in to unwashed masses – let the conversions begin! Michael Davis writes of this and makes the proper conclusion: All Politics Is Religion.
“Movement conservatism, meanwhile, is a kind of Protestantism. The Constitution fills the role of the Bible. It is immutable, if not infallible, and we must hold it, as Hamilton said, in “sacred reverence.” Like Protestantism, this conservatism defines itself by what it isn’t—monarchism, socialism, etc.—just as Protestantism is a blanket term for those Christian sects that arose in opposition to the Catholic Church. Jefferson and Adams are like Calvin and Luther: united by a common enemy more than a common creed.”
Armed with my description of a ‘Murican “Conservative Church” service, next time you see this transpire on Fox News and the propagandists for the faith wait breathlessly for the priest to arrive and mass begin, see if my description above is correct and if it is, know then what the takeaway is: The Faith has been replaced in most ‘Murican’s daily lives by the faith (sans caps intentional) in ‘Murica.
It’s August 2018 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 limits. I 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.”
