Veritas et Sapientia – “Third Worlds [cultures] are characterized by their repudiation of any sacred order. There is nothing in a Third World beyond this world by which culture can be justified. The implications of this are, according to Rieff, comprehensive and catastrophic. First, because of their rejection of a sacred order, Third World cultures face an unprecedented challenge: that of justifying themselves on the basis of themselves. No culture in history, Rieff notes, has ever done this successfully. It is a fool’s errand that ends in cultural collapse.” – Carl Trueman, The West Is A Third World

Amazon Proves Its Real Character, Again
Amazon is now selling bathmats with Our Lord’s image printed on them and toilet covers with Our Lady’s image printed on them and John Horvat has a petition drive to stop them both.
Welcome to ‘Muricah, Third World Anti-Culture
I read from Carl Trueman’s magnificent re-introduction of Phillip Reif’s Sacred Order/Social Order. Rieff predicted our headlong slide into an anti-cult back in the 60’s and what the consequences would be.
Third Worlds are characterized by their repudiation of any sacred order. There is nothing in a Third World beyond this world by which culture can be justified. The implications of this are, according to Rieff, comprehensive and catastrophic. First, because of their rejection of a sacred order, Third World cultures face an unprecedented challenge: that of justifying themselves on the basis of themselves. No culture in history, Rieff notes, has ever done this successfully. It is a fool’s errand that ends in cultural collapse: No culture in history has sustained itself merely as a culture, however attractive and authoritative. Cultures are dependent on their predicative sacred orders and break into mere residues whenever their predicates are broken. That is the main reason why our late second cultures and early thirds are increasingly unstable.

Save The World, Love A Catholic Artist Today
Joseph Pearce wants you to support Catholic artists like your life depends on it, given the news we have today on the denial that God even exists as Creator, its time to give Pearce our undivided attention.
The bottom line is that we change the world for better or worse with every dollar that we spend. There are few better ways of spending our money than in the support of contemporary Catholic culture. We are all called to become patrons of the Catholic arts. Let’s respond to the call.
I might know such an artist or two.
The Demons Have Come For The Children & They’ve Taken ALL The Schools
Read and truly weep this excerpt from a high school teacher on what’s going on in her private school.
The elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about is that, over and over for years now, these trans children are clearly suffering from massive mental and emotional problems, and all their pronouns and transitioning do nothing to heal that. Their fellow students, indoctrinated by this kind of ideology for their whole lives, uncritically foster it. The few adults–like me–who would like to point out that the emperor has no clothes, are prohibited by fiat from doing so.
Writing to Rod Dreher and commenting on the above, a parent of a 16 year old girl makes the correct response to this demonic madness.
If only schools did not promote this. If only doctors did not medicalize this. If only therapists were trained to truly help these children and not affirm them. If only the mainstream media would stop glamorizing this and perhaps assign an investigative journalist to look into the dangerous hormones and surgeries that doctors are pushing on children and their families. If only the Human Rights Campaign did not pressure lawmakers to enshrine gender identity into laws. If only medical associations, school associations, mental health associations were not run by ideologues. If only those who question were not labeled bigots and at risk of losing their jobs for doing so…Because transgender ideology has become so institutionalized so quickly and has been promoted as a human rights issue, it is truly impossible for us parents to remove our kids from the cult. – [emphasis mine- MC]
“Truly impossible to remove our kids”, let that sink in for a moment and imagine what a parent might have said during the Nazi regime of Hitler or the communist hell imposed by Stalin. We are living in a cultural climate that has become an enemy of what Jefferson called “nature and nature’s God” and they’ve done it without firing a shot or mobilizing an army yet the result is the same had we been invaded. I keep saying that this is the battle of our time and that God has called us into His army to serve but I don’t think most folks really believe this.
They Truly ARE The Demoncrat Party, Exhibit A
Its one thing to be pro “LGBTQrstlne” and quite another to demand that others follow suit under pain of excommunication from civil discourse but that’s what has happened to the Demoncrat party. You’re not allowed to be a “decent guy” unless you are all-in on the LGBTQ mafia’s agenda:
.@JoeBiden you’ve just called America’s most anti-LGBT elected leader “a decent guy.”

Its Official: The USA Is Now The Most Stupid, Cotton Pickin’ Civilization In History
Behold, the saga of woke cotton balls and the unofficial end of whites being allowed to breathe during black history month. You just can’t win with these people folks; have word formation, electronic device, will find unwoke whitey to destroy. An excerpt from Leah Walker’s letter.
During the tour of the Mansion Cottage, Alexandra and two of her follow Pages were asked to hold cotton that the First Lady retrieved from a bowl on a nearby table. Mrs. Northam then asked these three pages (the only African American pages in the program) if they could imagine what it must have been like to pick cotton all day. I can not for the life of me understand why the First Lady would single out the African American pages for this – or – why she would ask them such an insensitive question. Can you imagine how offended these children felt, and also how powerless they felt in that moment to advocate for themselves? Why would ANYONE ask children to imagine something like that, let alone African American Children? There are no words to truly convey how horrified I was to hear this account from my daughter and how outraged I am that Mrs. Northam would represent the Commonwealth in this manner… [T]he actions of Mrs. Northam, just last week, do not lead me to believe that this Governor’s office has taken seriously the harm and hurt they have caused African Americans in Virginia or that they are deserving of our forgiveness. Best regards, Leah Dozier Walker [emphasis mine-MC]
Got that, whitey? Hand a black child a cotton ball and Freddy Krueger appears, ready to slash them to unrecognizable bits. The cotton ball is so traumatizing of a symbol it renders black children unable to say “may I got to the restroom”! Imagine the power we can harness as unwoke whiteys by poaching a few 5 gallon buckets filled with freshly picked cotton balls!? Imagine the new, friendly crimes we can commit by brandishing cotton balls at bank teller windows staffed by black tellers. “Just put all the cash in the bag I handed you or the next thing that touches your hand is this 44 magnum cotton ball!” In an environment like this, it is easy to see how so many lives of our children are about to be turned into infamous stories of triggered rage and thus destroyed. That’s the real horror parents are feeling today, Mrs Walker. Freddie Krueger’s like you.

Tucker Carlson’s Just Rage, Revived
When Tucker Carlson aired his now famous (infamous to DeceptiCONS) 15 minute long monologue on the real problems facing ‘Muricah that blind obeisance to “free market capitalism” had principally cause, I spent 3 days on the radio show lauding Carlson’s courageous effort and then expounding upon his points. On yesterday’s show, the final 20 minutes was devoted to this discussion and applying it to radio broadcasting in 2019. Now comes Daniel Kishi’s review of Oren Cass’s 2018 book, The Once and Future Worker and boy howdy is this book spot on, on this effort to restore an economy based on solidarity. Here is today’s masthead quote in its entirety.
Most provocatively, Cass challenges the accepted belief that the path to prosperity ought be paved with four-year college diplomas. He notes that the current one-size-fits-all approach to higher education has saddled students and graduates with a collective $1.5 trillion of debt and has actively undermined their ability to live stable and productive lives. He suggests that we return to a system of educational and vocational tracking—to determine which students are best suited for higher education and which are best suited for the trades—and foster a labor market in which Americans with only high school degrees can prosper as well.
I will invite Cass on the show to discuss, meanwhile, we should all be having this conversation AND start acting upon those talks.
Imagine That, Mothers Acting All, Mother-y
There is unanimity among Demoncrats running for the Presidency on the new “right” to infanticide and women’s “ownership” of their gestating babies, now there is a new “right” should one of those babies survive attempts to kill it in the womb and then assassination from the Governor of Virginia: universal daycare… who knew!? Joy Pullman dissects this destructive idea I’ve been railing against since the first Head Start centers were opened in the early 1990’s.
If you have never seen, held, or cared for a six-week-old baby, the typical earliest time he may be deposited in daycare, you cannot truly understand how helpless and desperately needy such small people are. They are essentially still newborns. All they have known and loved in their life to that point, besides other people’s muted voices, is their mother. She is their bridge to the world, and they cling to her, first in utter dependence, and ideally later to go confidently off into that world because she’s taught them how.

Where The Jobs Are You’ll Find No One To Take Them
“Pray for vocations” is a mantra of mine the last 3 years but don’t “prey on vocations” meaning keep your grubby, “capitalist” mitts off of the trades and skilled yewts, all 3 of them. Rod Dreher has a piece today about just how many manufacturing jobs there are versus the available talent to fill them. Dreher blames the culture for this but if we proceed from the POV that culture is animated by the religious habits of the people, I think there is something else at work here: lex credendi et lex orandi, regni lex vivendi. How/what we believe and how we pray controls how we live ( I probably botched the Latin, please forgive!).
The Parable of The Sown Seed Has Been Bought By Monsanto
Gracie Olmstead performs the signal task of tracing the origin, development and now catastrophe flirting consolidation of crop seeds in ‘Muricah. There’s so many important points in her post that you must read the whole thing. Let’s start with this.
There are three traditional sorts of seeds: open-pollinated, heirloom, and hybrid seeds. Open-pollinated cultivars are pollinated by birds, bees, wind, or other natural means. The resulting seeds will be roughly identical to their parent seeds. These are the seeds home gardeners and farmers often save and re-plant in following seasons. Old, historic open-pollinated seeds are known as heirlooms: they’ve often been passed down through multiple generations by family members or home gardeners.
Then along come the agri-giants and their first attempts to make monopolies by consolidating heartland farms.
As seed biotechnology began to develop, changes in seed patent law dramatically reshaped germplasm cultivation and ownership in the U.S. Up until this point, seeds were generally seen as a public good: something owned by past, present, and posterity rather than by any single private entity….“Two years after genetically engineered (GE) varieties were introduced in 1996…the large agribusiness companies had accelerated their consolidation by buying up smaller firms to accumulate more intellectual property (IP) rights,” [Kristina] Hubbard wrote in a January article for Civil Eats.
That is just the beginning of this Brave New World-esque tale of where our Amazon controlled food supply is headed: to make food nothing more than a profit mechanism.
Private companies are increasingly acquiring more and more of the world’s germplasm. While there are still substantial seed banks throughout the U.S. government, land grant universities, and small seed companies, the world’s largest germplasm library belongs to Monsanto (and thus, considering its 2018 acquisition of Monsanto, to Bayer). In order to have access to that store of germplasm, companies have to license it. – emphasis mine-MC
LICENSE a food producing plant!?
The TrannyMammy™ Hysteria Now Commands Parliament, Congress Will Follow
Here you go, official confirmation that the demonicly inspired pandemic known as transgenderism has reached or is reaching its legal apogee, from the Daily Mail:
Primary school children from the age of five are to be taught about gay and transgender relationships as part of compulsory lessons. Guidance about the new lessons, which will be rolled out nationally next year, will be published tomorrow. It will also outline plans to withdraw parents’ rights to remove their children from sex education aged 15 from 2020. [emphasis mine-MC]
Let me be clear, for the 4,077th time: this is a legal assault upon the existence of God and his exalted role as omnipotent Creator. By the state asserting a unilateral right to “teach” and then “execute” medical treatments to stifle the biological process of puberty, the State is claiming its equality in creation and then its supremacy by acting with fiat. I wonder what British parents might say if we changed some small details of the story: Nazis In Parliament Order Transitioning Children To Undergo Educational Then Physical Enhancements? Clearly the Nazis have won the war on the English and are working on the French, Italian and Polish. The chastisement is coming folks.
The Social Media Mafia Is For Real, Get Out While You Can
Whenever I bring up the subject of provocative commentary on moral issues (provocative meaning in keeping with Catholic teaching) I always tell the MCS radio audience “whatever you do, do NOT read the comments”; well, here’s your proof from a formerly anonymous blogger who I won’t name but has been “doxxed”. This is what happened after he posted a commentary on the Culture War and some anti-fa nazis found their way into his comments section and basically took it over as a social media mob.
Some people found my real name and started posting it on Twitter. Some people made entire accounts devoted to doxxing me in Twitter discussions whenever an opportunity came up. A few people just messaged me letting me know they knew my real name and reminding me that they could do this if they wanted to. Some people started messaging my real-life friends, telling them to stop being friends with me because I supported racists and sexists and Nazis. Somebody posted a monetary reward for information that could be used to discredit me. One person called the clinic where I worked, pretended to be a patient, and tried to get me fired. – [emphasis mine-MC]
The gentleman in question, however, in the RIP for the Culture War blog identifies the root of his and modernity’s “comment mafia” problems without realizing it.
Each of these views has adherents who are, no offense, smarter than you are. Each of these views has, at times, won over entire cultures so completely that disagreeing with them then was as unthinkable as agreeing with them is today. I disagree with most of them but don’t want to be too harsh on any of them. Reasoning correctly about these things is excruciatingly hard, trusting consensus opinion would have led you horrifyingly wrong throughout most of the past, and other options, if they exist, are obscure and full of pitfalls. I tend to go with philosophers from Voltaire to Mill to Popper who say the only solution is to let everybody have their say and then try to figure it out in the marketplace of ideas. But none of those luminaries had to deal with online comment sections.
There can be no “reason” when basing your philosophy upon the work of Voltaire, Mill and Popper because their entire effort was driven by the lust to destroy the one stabilizing factor that made western civilization what it once was and a target for destruction: Catholicism and her handmaiden: scholastic (Thomistic) philosophy.
There Is No Written Summary Of The Sodomy Summit Because There’s Nothing To Report On
As soon as I find a written summary of what did NOT happen at the Summit on Sex in Rome, I’ll post it. From the videos I’ve watched the summary is this: status quo, pretend to be concerned, promise to “change protocols”, call for a future meeting, then go back to avoiding the Chastisement that will come nevertheless. As the title above says, this cannot be avoided now. The Inaction of The Pope’s Sodomy Summit Practically Guarantees A Catastrophic Chastisement
Now They’ve Come For John Wayne, Pilgrim
If you ever spoke to anyone in your life and they recorded it, get the tape and burn it. If you were ever interviewed or wrote something that was printed, change your name, move to a remote area, disconnect from all social media and pray no one ever comes looking to wake you by promoting what’s in print. This is the cowardly new woke world or as I call it the WIC in which we simmer. The L.A. Times, bored with the cataclysm of wild fires VD epidemics in the porn industry now train their fire on getting the name changed of Orange County’s John Wayne Municipal Airport because Wayne was the most anti-woke man ever profiled in Playboy magazine… in 1971.
But that Orange County no longer exists. That should be evident from the results of November’s election, in which voters turfed out the county’s last remaining GOP members of Congress — some of whom had embraced Donald Trump in a fruitless effort to save their careers–and elected an all-Democratic congressional delegation. Orange County today is such an economically and ethnically diverse community that it’s hard to justify asking any member of that community to board planes at an airport named after an outspoken racist and homophobe, with his strutting statue occupying a central niche in front of the concourse.
Call Mitch Landrieu! He can help with the torches and trucks needed to cut the statue down and put it in a warehouse somewhere so the woke world will never be traumatized by gazing upon it again.
The Demons Are Ascendent, They’ve Come For The Children And its Being Made Legal
Stella Moribito consistently reports on the danger that the TrannyMammy™ zeitgeist poses to all children in the West and today she has knocked it out of the park. In a lengthy essay titled The Pedophilia Project: Your 7 Year Old Is Next on The Sexual Revolution’s Hit-Parade, Morabito confirms what I have been telling you for 3 years now. “The demons are ascendent, they’ve come for the children and they won’t take ‘no’ for an answer”.
Activists for normalizing pedophilia are on the move. Public acceptance of adult sex with children is the next domino poised to fall in identity politics. It’s being sustained, among other things, by the rapid sexualization of children in the media and in K-12 education. We cannot dismiss the campaign to legalize pedophilia as fringy stuff that will get nowhere. It’s real and it’s here and it’s gaining strength. It’s a very logical outgrowth of the nihilism inherent in the sexual revolution.-Stella Morabito
Without using the term TrannyMammy™ Morabito confirms what I’ve been telling you about these “parents”, they are in on the perversion.
A majority of American parents are already tacitly okay with sex “education” that pushes early sexual activity on their kids, along with developmentally inappropriate teachings about various sexual practices. They’re also getting on board with having the transgender hoax imposed on their kids, with a bunch of cool moms modeling that behavior. [emphasis mine-MC]
Together, these events and the “Perv Summit” going on in Rome right now and we can see a clear pattern emerge and it all points to the children. Children transitioning. Children serving at the altar and being assaulted. Legal infanticide. Adolescents being corrupted in nearly every seminary on earth. Media offering tips on anal sex. Media making comedy out of 12 year olds masturbating and visually inspecting their privates. Its all about the children, folks. The tragedy of the “Summit” going on in Rome right now? The Holy Father & his cardinals are “discussing” the rape of boys and by their inaction, make it irrelevant.
Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing-How Saul Alinsky Ruined American Catholicism
Check out my interview with the Father/Son filmmaking team behind Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing, Richard and Stephen Payne. The Payne’s boldly state:
This is no conspiracy theory! It’s the real story of Alinsky and his movement. It’s the classic teachings of the Church with insights from philosopher Dr. Alice von Hildebrand, Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J. (who as a Jesuit scholastic was trained in Alinskyian organizing), Fathers Glenn Sudano & Andrew Apostoli (co-founders with Fr. Benedict Groeschel of Franciscan Friars of the Renewal), Stephanie Block (who wrote the definitive 4 volume study of Alinskyian organizing). Actors play Alinsky, Popes St. John Paul II & Leo XIII, Blessed Jerzy Popieluszko & others.
We have made the entire interview available for FREE, please share it with friends and family today, its an important piece of work!
Lukewarm Ninnyism Begins During Teenage Years
A new study shows that most children who leave the Catholic Church as young adults begin the process when they are teens DURING CCD classes etc (my conclusion, not the study’s authors). Now why would that be and why does it matter? Look what 50 years of post-conciliar “happy Jesus-no sin to see here, parishioner, move along, faith” hath wrought [emphasis mine, MC]
The church also is encountering loss through people who were never introduced to the faith. Parents raised as Catholics increasingly choose not to enroll their children in the sacraments of initiation. While Catholic fertility rates largely reflect that of the general population, fewer infants are baptized today than in the 1940s, according to Mark Gray, a senior researcher on Catholicism.
If you are a Mass, 4 times a year “catholic” you obviously don’t believe the Sacraments are an integral and necessary part of your salvation so why should you bother your kids with it when they can hang out with the Protestants down the way and climb rock walls in their churches?
Mike Church, Too Catholic For Satellite Radio
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.

It’s March2019 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?”
