Veritas et Sapientia – “When we read the Instrumentum Laboris, we do not find an extensive analysis of models that have proved successful in forming young people in the faith. Nor do we find guidance on how the socio-cultural concerns of young people can be raised and oriented toward a supernatural end. We find instead vague references to “some young people” who wish for this or that part of the Church’s teaching to change. But we know many young people who do not want the Church’s teachings to change, who instead want them proclaimed more vigorously—precisely because they see them as the antidote to the cultural wasteland in which we live. For this reason, we believe the Instrumentum needs substantial rethinking and revision. Only a powerful encounter with Jesus Christ and a joyful proclamation of the orthodox faith of the Church can inspire young hearts and fire young people to mission. Sociological analysis cannot achieve this.” – Letter of young Priests to the Media

When Congress Appoints Me Queen And Provides Me The Bulletproof, Glass Cage From Silence of The Lambs…. – Now Christine Blah de Blah de Blah de Blasey Ford is demanding the Federal government of the United States adjust its schedule to synchronize with hers, then, and if they’ll “guarantee her safety”, she’ll consider testifying. Seriously folks, you can’t make this stuff up…
“As you are aware, she’s been receiving death threats which have been reported to the FBI and she and her family have been forced out of their home,” Katz wrote to the committee. “She wishes to testify, provided that we can agree on terms that are fair and which ensure her safety. A hearing on Monday is not possible and the committee’s insistence that it occur then is arbitrary in any event.”
Terms!? Fair!? What is this a hostage negotiation. This woman and her Gloria Allred wannabe attorney are about as credible as Colin Kapernick leading the pledge at a VFW hall tonight. Oh and then there’s this: An “anonymous student” who attened Kavanaugh’s high school says there were out of control orgy parties all over campus so yeah, Kavanaugh would have had the opportunity to assault Blasey Ford AND there was a mafia-like “omerta” in effect too, so no one ratted fellow rapists out.
We Must Be Over The Target! Former FBI Director Louie Freeh Attacks The CRUSADE On Twitter! – Follow the simmering controversy of Louie Freeh implying things that Gregory Carpenter and I never said about TWA Flight 800 in the CRUSADE Channel’s TWA Flight 800 – What Really Happened.

“Our Brains Are Instead Full of Blind Allegiances” Amen, Brother – We live in an age of unparalleled faith says David Breitenbeck and he’s right. People have faith in Smartphones and apps but not in miracles. People have faith that science will make “a better future” but not that ora et labora can make one AND guarantee a “better” eternity.
“An educated man in the Middle Ages might have believed in many things that we today would question, but he could tell us exactly why he believed them and cite both past scholarship and empirical observations in support of his ideas. An educated man of the postmodern age can only repeat what he’s been told must be true and assume you are in some manner a bad person if you question it.”
Breitenbeck’s piece is filled with these witticisms, read the whole thing and celebrate our Geocentric, Mother Earth!
The Tree Hugger Pope And The Loss of Souls – When a Roman Catholic priest takes to the editorial pages of a major Catholic magazine to subtly mock the Holy Father’s obsession with “clean” oceans, too much plastic production and increased Muslim immigration into formerly Christian lands, there must be a problem in Rome. Father Rutler applies a good sense of humor to his flabbergasted state.
“Plastic is not mentioned in Sacred Scripture, not even in the New American Bible. But we may safely assume that Jesus would have had difficulty walking on water if it had been filled with plastic trash. Saint Peter found a gold coin in the mouth of a fish but today he might very well find only a piece of styrofoam. When our Lord fed the five thousand and the four thousand, the leftovers filled twelve and seven kphinoi, or wicker baskets, respectively. These were huge crowds, especially if you add the number of women and children, and more so if 2+2 = 5. But the point is: these baskets were biodegradable, and it would never have occurred to the Master to use plastic trash bags even if such had existed. Eventually the baskets would have decayed and returned to the soil from whence they came. And that is how it should be. Even the parables can be updated for the present emergency: the Good Ecologist, having recycled ninety-nine plastic bottles, still goes out in search of the one polyurethane bottle that is lost.”
Now that’s funny AND relevant, Father Rutler’s well taken point being Papa Francis’ obsessive talks on the environment and the patterns that cars move in can only be an attempt to fill the dead air that his lack of interest in matters of saving souls and making the world Catholic would require. This blurb was written on recycled, florescent pixels.
Gentlemen: Which of These Four Types of Man Are You? And Your Sons? – Regis Nicoll has separated modern men into 4 categories: Alpha Male, The Feminized Male, The über Male and the True Man. Read the characterizations and see which one best describes you and more importantly your son or grandson.Quoting comedian Michael Black, Nicoll observes.
“Men feel isolated, confused and conflicted about their natures. Many feel that the very qualities that used to define them—their strength, aggression and competitiveness—are no longer wanted or needed; many others never felt strong or aggressive or competitive to begin with. We don’t know how to be, and we’re terrified.”
Now, is that true or is it more accurate to say “We’re not allowed to be real men, and we’re terrified of the alternative”?

The Anita Hilling Of Brett Kavanaugh – I read David Brock’s 1993 bombshell book The Real Anita Hill and it was so good I read it again. In that book, Brock, who now claims he told “white lies” in the book, plays Sherlock Holmes and Sam Spade and using the historical facts that can be known, stitched together the “how-to” part of the Anita Hill story. What I recall of the story is a near perfect match for what is being done to Judge Kavanaugh with the exception being the Dumbocrat party has become hysterical in the evil in trying to savage Kavanaugh. David Harsanyi shares this view.
“There is also no possible outcome in which Democrats will concede Kavanaugh’s innocence, or even concede that we can’t really know what transpired on that night 36 years ago. Republicans can accede to as many hearings as Democrats demand, and it won’t alter any of the liberal rhetoric or perceptions of partisans. Republicans could put Kavanaugh’s classmates under oath and have them deny that anything inappropriate or criminal occurred that night, and it will not matter.”
It will not matter, i.e. if the Truth of the matter exonerates the Judge, we’ll never know. What we do know is that today’s Democrat party has completed its ritual of becoming perfectly possessed and carry out their master’s bidding with the bloody consequences of abortion and damned souls.
What Will Happen To The ‘Muricah #MAGA’s Are Trying To Conserve, After Trump’s Presidency? – Short answer: there won’t be anything resembling a “Christian America” and that trend-line is already set in stone, says Ross Douthat.
All Hail Mr. “Bond… JunkBond” As New Demands To Reopen TWA 800 Investigation Mount – You heard it here on The CRUSADE Channel, a then, seemingly “conspiratorial” 3 part series on the crash of TWA flight 800; hosted by the radio novice Gregory Carpenter. Now comes William Marshall on the pages of The Federalist presenting the case of why the TWA Flight 800 “investigation” produced a farce of a story about the cause of the crash.
“The evidence contravening the government’s conclusion that it was an accident is too voluminous to detail here, but it includes the following: more than 250 eyewitnesses (including pilots) who saw at least one missile attack the aircraft, nearly 100 of whom saw it rise from the surface of the ocean; scientific analyses debunking the CIA’s ridiculous animated video positing the absurd theory that the crippled aircraft with its nose blown off was able to “zoom” upwards more than 3,000 feet, defying all known laws of physics; and an underwater debris field inconsistent with the on-board explosion (as opposed to missile strike) theory of the plane’s destruction.”
This is not surprising and only goes to support the lethal and corruptive nature of the Federal monstrosity. That it is complicit in the deaths of everyone on-board TWA Flight 800 is a story that begs to be told, finally.

Buchanan: Kavanaugh Deserves A Confirmation Vote Despite Blasey Ford’s Accusations – Patrick J. Buchanan doesn’t know whether to believe Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser or not but he does know this: the Libtards know what’s at stake here and are going to do anything and everything they can to maintain their diabolical SCOTUS majority.
“If Kavanaugh is elevated, the judicial dictatorship of decades past—going back to the salad days of Earl Warren, William Brennan, Hugo Black, and “Wild Bill” Douglas—will have reached its end. A new era will have begun.”
What that “new era” might entail is open for debate and reality will ultimately decide it (with God’s help of course); but to live to see the end of “judicial activism”, it’s worth the price of admission: Trump’s election.

Constitution!? What Constitution!? Does Kavanaugh Know How To Handle His Liquor At Pool Parties!? – That’s what a SCOTUS nomination has now come down to, a “he said, she said” account of a high school pool party that happened 33 years ago!? The WSJ editorial summarizes.
“The timing and details of how Ms. Ford came forward, and how her name was coaxed into public view, should also raise red flags about the partisan motives at play. The Post says Ms. Ford contacted the paper via a tip line in July but wanted to remain anonymous. She then brought her story to a Democratic official while still hoping to stay anonymous.”
She contacted a DEMOCRAT official!? If all there is, is truth and justice here, why not contact Trump and tell him his nominee is an understudy to Harvey Weinstein!?
U.S. Air Force Demands Hundreds of New Planes & Bombers To “Retain ‘Muricah’s Edge” – Apparently, $710 BILLION in military spending has shafted the USAF and they are warning the “friendly skies” aren’t going to remain friendly without more planes to fly over SEC football stadiums next weekend.
Every 500 Years There Is A Revolt Against Catholicism…The One We’re In Right Now Is The Worst of All – Ben Wiker gets right to the point in his essay about the cyclical, 500 year attack, weakening near death, revival cycle the Catholic Church endures but fears this one may take the whole edifice down with it, resulting in, you guessed it…. “catacombs dude.”
“So, this is a big crisis, arguably the biggest the Church has faced. That is why half-measures, bishops’ committees, solemn and airy declarations and stonewalling must stop. The Church must be scoured, and it seems that the laity must take the lead in the cleanup. At the end of my book The Reformation 500 Years Later, I argued that the two greatest enemies facing all Christians were Secularism and radical Islam. If I had waited a year to publish and known about the depth of the scandals, I would have named another.”
Wiker may not realize his minor contradiction here: The Church’s leaders ARE secularists, thus their flight away from orthodoxy and into novelty that’s now given way to normalizing perversion, cannot be of holy origins as surely as the pagan’s perversions it replaced were.
Kavanaugh Accuser Now Playing Miss Cleo “I Believe IF He Wasn’t Inebriated, He Would Have RAPED Me” – https://edition.cnn.com/2018/09/17/politics/brett-kavanaugh-testimony/index.html
What The ‘Burbs Tells Us About 1989’s And Today’s Fortress ‘Muricah – One of my favorite movies is a Tom Hanks feature made back when Tom Hanks could still play a mildly comedic role and leave the SJW moralizing Tim Robbins. Dan DeCarlo reminds me this morning of just how insightful The ‘Burbs was as a critique of what the Monkees sang as Pleasant Valley Sunday. Wealthy ‘Murican suburbanites, bored to tears with their latest material acquisitions that render no long term pleasure or happiness and finding purpose in spying on and gossiping about quirky neighbors. DeCarlo points out that in one of the most memorable scenes in the film, Tom Hanks bemoans taking a week-long trip “to the lake house” and would rather stay at home (to spy on the Klopek’s). In the end, the boredom overcomes the protagonists by spurring them into imperative action and the finale it produces doesn’t disappoint.
Rethinking USA! USA! USA! Why “The Good War” Wasn’t So Good – DeceptiCONS have an affinity for WWII, “The Good War”, you know the one where ‘Muricah purged the planet of the evil that was Nazism and Imperial Japanese hegemony. While it is certainly true that Hitler posed a threat to our European allies and ancestral homes, his was a threat exacerbated by Wilson’s intervention in WWI, a subject as anathema to DeceptiCONS as Kryptonite is to Clark Kent. Building on these themes, Joseph Mussomeli brilliantly updates the standard, non-interventionist, arguments against ‘Murican Military Exceptionalism, read the whole thing here.
Only In ‘Muricah-A Sex Scandal Where There Is No Sex – I recall Ann Coulter writing once that because of the Democrat party’s relentless pursuit of destroying the reputation and vocation of anyone that disagrees with them includes baseless charges of their favorite past-time, illicit sex, but thgey almost always forget one ingredient: the sex. So it is with the latest desperate attempt to deny Brett Kavanaugh a seat on the SCOTUS: a woman has surfaced who claims that Kavanaugh groped her at a pool party in HIGH SCHOOL. This is the account from The Hill.
“Christine Blasey Ford, told The Washington Post that in high school in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed at a party and forced himself on her. Ford told the Post that Kavanaugh “groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it.”
That’s it!? Where’s the beef? At least when the Brits have sex scandals there is actual sex. At least when they have sex assault cases there is actual assault. In this case we have a 35 year old groping event that doesn’t remotely sound violent or even illegal; at worst, it shows that Kavanaugh responded positively to Democrat agitation to pursue illicit sex outside of marriage; shouldn’t he get a Democrat point of Light award or something? Wasn’t there an episode of Sex And The City about a similar event and the girls complained because the “perp” took no for an answer to quickly?
The Human Race Needs $169 TRILLION Just To Go Back To Being “Broke” – You have to hand it to our elite, ruling cabal, they know how to throw a 4 decade long party, that you and I were not invited to, don’t they!? And the best part is they never had to pay the help, settle the liquor tab or even tip the call girls because they put the whole thing on the ‘ol PlantCharge card and now the bill is due: $169 TRILLION! Put another way, the planet’s elites are $%169 TRILLION in credit payments away from just being broke. John Horvat wonders when this debt orgy will end and at what cost to the rest of us?
Papa Francis To “The Bishops Knew” Movement: “Get Behind ME, Satan!” – Papa Francis handed those who are agitating for a purge of clerics who are active homosexuals and their enablers, a smackdown. According to the Catholic Herald.
“Referring to the devil, Pope Francis said: “In these times, it seems like the Great Accuser has been unchained and is attacking bishops.” “True, we are all sinners, we bishops,” he added. “He tries to uncover the sins, so they are visible in order to scandalize the people. “The Great Accuser, as he himself says to God in the first chapter of the Book of Job, ‘roams the earth looking for someone to accuse’.
Got that, trad-cath wackos? Papa Francis equates your burning desire for your Catholic Church to start acting all holy and stuff as you having transformed into a disfigured person, whose head can spin a 360º and spit green vomit 30 feet across the room.
If An American Cringes When A Fed Says “I’m From The Gubbmint & I’m Here To Help, Why Wouldn’t A Syrian Do The Same? – Doug Bandow is among those, your humble correspondent included, who has had it with Mordor on The Potomac attempting social engineering via military might across the planet…to catastrophic results.
“The Syrian civil war was and remains a tragedy. Unfortunately, the Trump administration appears to share the belief of the Obama and Bush administrations that it can transform the Middle East in America’s image. But Washington’s record when it attempts that is not just bad: it is catastrophically awful. It’s time to say no more. Social engineering doesn’t work at home. It has worse results when attempted overseas.”
There’s also the matter of the UN Charter, of which we are a party, that expressly forbids military occupations of one member state to another. This is what makes me, today, a 49%’er for President Trump; I pray #MAGA faithful start demanding he keep the no-nation building campaign promises.
The Bishops, Including The Bishop of Rome, DID Know – In Rome yesterday there was a conference that included author Rod Dreher and focused on his recent book’s title The Benedict Option. In attendance were many Roman clergy and most notably, the secretary of Pope Benedict XVI and prefect of the papal household, Archbishop Georg Gänswein. Archbishop Gänswein relayed the most amazing story that virtually guarantees the fact that Archbishop Vigano’s testimony is true and that Pope Francis most certainly was told of the evil that was then Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.
“I remember as if it were yesterday when on April 16, 2008, accompanying Pope Benedict XVI right in that National Shrine of the Catholic Church in the United States of America, he touchingly tried to shake the bishops convened from all the United States: he spoke bent over the ‘profound shame’ caused by ‘the sexual abuse of minors by priests’ and ‘the immense sorrow your communities have suffered when men of the Church have betrayed their priestly duties and duties with such grossly unethical behavior.’ But evidently in vain, as we see today. The lament of the Holy Father was not able to contain the evil, nor the formal assurances and the commitments in words of a large part of the hierarchy.” [emphasis mine, MC]
This comports perfectly with Vigano’s testimony that Benedict XVI tried vainly to reign in the abuse and abusers and thus, having failed, passed the task on to the supposedly more vigorous and younger, Bergoglio, Pope Francis.
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. Download all 11 Episodes here.
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.
It’s September 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.”
