Mandeville, LA – Today’s Pile of Prep: most of the stories and research used to put together the Mike Church Show on the Veritas Radio Network’s CRUSADE Channel.
Veritas et Sapientia – “If a man were to say to me, “I refuse to use my eyesight except through a microscope,” I might think that the man is queer or crazy, and I would certainly try to avoid his company. Imagine taking a walk with a man who keeps one eye closed, and the other, permanently fixed to a microscope! Such a man is worse than blind, for a blind man who cannot see the stars, talks about them, and eagerly seeks to learn; but the man tied to the microscope neither sees nor seeks.“ – Brother Francis, The Dangers of Scientism
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.
Rand Paul Didn’t Get The “Biggest Allies” In The Region Memo!
At the American Conservative annual conference, the Kentucky Senator said some things you are not supposed to say about ‘Muricah’s war machine and who our allies are and are not. On Saudi Arabia, Paul dropped this bomb.
So if you ask me who’s the worst at spreading hatred and trying to engender terrorism around the world, it’s Saudi Arabia hands down,” Paul said. “And if you say which people is probably more likely to come to Western ways and more likely to train with us and like the West, it’s probably Iran.
Paul won’t win any friends at Boeing or their pimps on FauxNews talking Truth like that and I wish he were saying these things in more popular venues but we can still applaud the sentiments.
Amazon Has Become The Crown Jewel of Crony Capitalism
Jeff Bezos’s personal wealth has grown by $36 billion *just this year* and taxpayers are being forced to build him helipads. It’s a brazen display of corporate dominance. There are sound left AND right arguments against this: it’s a matter of subservience vs. independence— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) November 14, 2018
Rod Dreher has a post on this and quotes a reader’s comments, tagged only as Mat in VA. I’m quoting Matt here because he nails the bullet points (added by me).
- Literally billions of dollars in public funding for the richest man on the planet to build even more headquarters (seems like a company big enough to have three massive headquarters could use a heaping dose of antitrust legislation).
- The whole thing, the whole selection process, a giant performance of obeisance to the second largest company in the world,
- already with effective monopoly power on the written word/publishing industry, with various cities clobbered by postindustrialism and globalization prostituting themselves for this monster, and then of course
- Amazon goes with the two cities that already have the most power in the world. (The cities not chosen should be grateful, frankly.)
- The intertwining tentacles of Big Tech and Big Government growing ever more strangling. This is our elite — the establishment of both parties, note well.
- This is the kind of thing our elite does. Imagine believing in *this* kind of America. My understanding is that Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and Tucker Carlson are on the same page about this whole absolutely revolting spectacle.
It is a revolting spectacle yet your next door neighbor, your mother and your competitor down the street have all bought into “amazoning” their consumption. Like drunken sailors who destroy the port’s only bar one drunken eve, what’s needed is a cold bath and 30 days in the brig. Ask yourself this question: can you go 30 days without shopping at amazon? I can and have gone 3 years now! You can do it!

The Metrosexual, Skinny-jean Wearing Pandemic Is Here
Bloomberg has a story that puts into numbers what you and I can see with our eyes: millennial, skinny jean wearing, impotent, effeminate, shrunken testicle men, have reached epidemic proportions. The way Bloomberg reports on the crisis though illustrates perfectly how the issue is being misplaced.
Ten years after the Great Recession, 25- to 34-year-old men are lagging in the workforce more than any other age and gender demographic. About 500,000 more would be punching the clock today had their employment rate returned to pre-downturn levels. Many, like Butcher, say they’re in training. Others report disability. All are missing out on a hot labor market and crucial years on the job, ones traditionally filled with the promotions and raises that build the foundation for a career. [emphasis mine – MC]
So there is nothing about a young man’s life that cannot be measured in vanquishing competitors in the rat race and the amount of zeroes in finance accounts?
It’s Your Lucky Day, Smallville, Amazon Isn’t Coming To Ruin Your Town!
The crony capitalist warehouse scheme that is amazon’s “headquarter” derby can be summed up in what state’s were willing to tax their citizens, amazon customers all, to lure the diabolical behemoth.
The commonwealth of Virginia has offered several hundred million dollars in tax incentives, effectively paying Amazon $22,000 for each job they bring, as well as almost $200 million in infrastructure for the area. New York, which didn’t give Facebook or Google money when they moved there, has offered over $1.5 billion in incentives for Amazon’s other headquarters in Queens.
I’ve been campaigning for 3 years now to get people to realize the permanent damage they are doing to their economies and communities by farming out the acquisition of increasing amounts of chochkeys and imported from China crap; but to little avail, maybe the above stats will put the real acts of the beast into action?
The Anti Physics, Physics of The TrannyMammy™ Pandemic
It had to happen, folks, it just had to: 2,100+ “scientists” have signed a letter stating that science says there is no such thing as incarnated gender.
The relationship between sex chromosomes, genitalia, and gender identity is complex, and not fully understood. There are no genetic tests that can unambiguously determine gender, or even sex. Furthermore, even if such tests existed, it would be unconscionable to use the pretext of science to enact policies that overrule the lived experience of people’s own gender identities.
Got that, non-scientist, hoi polloi “men” and “women”!? YOU don’t exist until science proves you exist and then, you only exist as a collection of cells who have “experienced” events that make them what they “are” or “identify” as.
Tucker Carlson’s Ship of Fools Exposes ‘Murican’s Foolish Faith In “Our Democracy”
The few times I have watched Tucker Carlson’s TV show Tucker I’ve been impressed with his manner of dealing with the lunacy of our time: he’s incredulous that it can actually sustain itself fueled by its own soulless pursuit of nothing. In Ship of Fools (see today’s Veritas et Sapientia), Carlson expounds on one of my regular, pet themes: the worship of ‘Muricah as a religion in and of itself. Jerry Salyer has read the book and offers just such a conclusion.
“Whatever the case, when we assess the spiritual dimension of these matters the situation proves even worse than the dissolving country and “economic heap” described by Carlson. In addition to admitting that they enjoyed rank and privilege, the ruling classes in most societies were also wont to share—or at least acknowledge—the religion of their subjects. Today this is obviously no longer the case, and we might only be able to make sense of the hysterical tone of contemporary discourse by admitting that the divide which runs through America is essentially a religious one…”
Salyer also points out the obvious: Poland would fit inside Montana, thus the ‘Murican “experiment” is one in defying the natural boundaries of scale.
Time To Vote Ba’alifornia Off The Island Before Its Too Late
As Michael Brendan Dougherty points out, the land of fruits and nuts has gone from bad to worse to straight up diabolical. The “Golden State” has now elected the Trannymammy™ pinup poster-boy and former City by The Gay mayor, Gavin Newsome as governor. To put that into perspective, Governor Moonbeam – the certifiably insane Jerry Brown – was actually a moderating force in California politics the last 4 years. From teenage abortions at public schools to a $400 billion hole in their lavish retirement system CALPENS to laws prohibiting parents from seeking second opinions on “transitioning” children to making euthanasia legal, California should take the name I’ve given it and run with to see how many souls they can harvest for Satan. Say hello to Ba’alifornia.
Ba-alifornia Is Now Actually Promoting Itself As A Satanic Destination – If you drive Interstate 5 in Ba’alifornia you will see two signs of the “Adopt a Highway” type that read “The Art of Satan”…. no joke. John Horvat has started a petition to have them removed but what ought to really be removed is legalized acceptance of religious plurality that makes this stuff possible. See my article on restoring the Kingship of Christ for His feast day.
The Sodomite Sacristans Are Now “Out” In The Open & Ascendent – Witness the scandalous, outrageous, blasphemous and sacrilegious “ministry” of the “Rainbow Warrior” priest, “Father” Michael Guimond.
But according to the now-scrubbed Rainbow Warrior Facebook page, where Guimon’s name and phone number appeared, the men discuss much more.
They talk about “how to meet other GBTQQ men for friendship and romantic relationships, to navigating the difficulties of using social media and apps such as Grindr, where men often post false pictures or simply want to have casual sex rather than more intimate relationships.” [emphasis mine – MC]
“Father” Guimond also claims to be the prior of the Basilica of Our Lady of Sorrows and was holding meetings of his “Rainbow Warriors” there until Lifesite News broke the story in great detail and asked for comment.
After LifeSiteNews contacted the archdiocese and the order, the Rainbow Warrior Facebook page disappeared, and the ManKindPride meetup site listing Our Lady of Sorrows as the group’s meeting site now lists it as meeting elsewhere.
Reparations Needed, NOW – Straight up, this outrage must be addressed with prayer reparations and it must be addressed now. You can start by joining my confraternity and our martyr patron Jaques Cathelineau – The CRUSADER Knights of The Holy Rosary.
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”?
Every 500 Years There Is A Revolt Against Catholicism…The One We’re In Right Now Is The Worst of All – Ben Wicker 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.”
Wicker 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.
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.
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 October 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.”
