“I promise to do my best by Ellen DeGeneres and GLAAD, to wage war on God and his church, so help me Ba’al.” – The Boy New Scout Pledge
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. 2016 is here and WELCOME to the All-New, Mike Church Show on the CRUSADE Channel, listen LIVE for Free (don’t cost nuthin’).
Sapientia et Veritas – “The denial of everything transcending experience means inevitably— though ways are found to hedge on this— the denial of truth. With the denial of objective truth there is no escape from the relativism of “m an the measure of all things.” The witches spoke with the habitual equivocation of oracles when they told man that by this easy choice he might realize him self more fully, for they were actually initiating a course which cuts one off from reality. Thus began the “abomination of desolation” appearing today a a feeling of alienation from all fixed truth. – Richard Weaver, Ideas Have Consequences” – Richard Weaver, Ideas Have Consequences
All Hail His Excellency, Emperor Robart I, Keeper Of The Immigrant Flame – The Wall Street Journal, the WaPo, the NY Times and the rest of the usual suspects in Has-Been Media™ are certain that Federal Judges have the power to issue nationwide edicts from their “benches” then have them carried out by the legal peasantry. Someone notify the storm troopers on Hoth. In an unprecedented legal move, Judge James L Robart of Seattle Washington. Robart, without bothering to cite any Constitutional precedent but instead relied on two previous Federal Court cases, claims to have halted implementation of President Trump’s Executive Order on immigrant travel into the United States from his perch to the Ice World of Hoth and back. Congress has the ultimate authority to rectify this situation by either passing an immigration bill that contains Trump’s ban or by ordering the Article III Judiciary to stop hearing cases brought against the Trump Administration as they should have done after Roe V Wade, Obergfeldt and dozens of other federal judiciary acts.
Carmelites!? There’s No Carmelites! President Trump Throws In With Obama On LGBTQrstlne – Christians have been by Donald Trump since 2015 that if he were elected President he would repeal the Johnson Amendment and restore true religious liberty to the clergy. Now comes the story that Trump has wavered on this as a result of his millennial children’s thoroughly disordered (but wildly popular) thoughts on homosexuality. As Denny Burk tells it, “religious conservatives ought to be at DefCon 1 right now but they aren’t”. What has also been missed by many, including this correspondent is Trump’s Tuesday night statement that affirms his position on the equality of LGBTQrstlne in the eyes of the Federal Government. Did you catch this? “The President is proud to have been the first ever GOP nominee to mention the LGBTQ community in his nomination acceptance speech, pledging then to protect the community from violence and oppression. The executive order signed in 2014, which protects employees from anti-LGBTQ workplace discrimination while working for federal contractors, will remain intact at the direction of President Donald J. Trump.” Got that, Christian? There is equality for disordered thinking at the top of the Trump Train White House. Ads Gerald Warner prophetically wrote of President Obama before his first term began, “this will all end in tears”.
So its OK For Washington State To Nullify Trump’s Election? – For over a decade, ratified Constitution defenders have held the high, historical ground that the Federal Government can be legally opposed when it exceeds its authority, we call this “Nullification”. Whenever we have made this claim, regardless of the tyranny opposed, we have been called every typical epithet in the book including “racist, bigot, homophobe” and for good measure “nazi” and “slave owner”. Now comes Washington State mobilizing its entire government to oppose what they say are egregious abuses of federal power being taken by the Trump Administration. The WaPo even gives the state heroic headlines and basically sides with them as legitimate protector’s of their citizens and by proxy all the rest of us rubes. Washington’s governor, Jay Inslee, went so far as to compare the Trump travel ban as being of the same color as the internment of Japanese citizens during WWII, neglecting to mention that action was taken by a Progressive who fomented caustic racism against Asians as part of his war propaganda.
Goodella The Hun Is Booed On Superbowl Trophy Stage – Speaking of tyrants, the Commissioner of The NFL, Roger Goodell, has left a trail of dashed hopes and fan outage in his tenure; see the persecution of the New Orleans Saints for “Bounty Gate” for an example. Then there is the years long “deflate gate” waged against the New England Patriots, last night, when trying to present the Lombardi Trophy to Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Goodell was booed so loudly that he could not be heard over the roar. If you are a Saints fan, you were probably booing along with the crowd, I know I was, in between chuckles.
Here Come Da Judge, Here Come Da Judge – When President Trump selected federal appeals court judge Neil Gorsuch, he sent a message to the demon hordes guarding the Palace of The Cult of Death: “You’re fired!” The hysteria has already begun with Dumbocrats in the employ of Mammon, lecturing TV Gossip show audiences that Gorsuch must disclose if “he thinks the government should be in a doctor’s office or by a dying person’s bedside.” The logical answer to this is that the government is already in both places, having protected from justice, the perpetrators of both material causes of death. Gorsuch’s book on euthanasia is going to become the “nappy headed hoe” of this upcoming circus we’ll all see play out in media and in the Senate. But let’s visit what is really the ultimate purpose of his nomination: helping President trump keep the pro-life promises he made and judging by the reaction, the enemies of God and His Church are convinced Trump has thrown down a Full House. Rod Dreher has a concise but encouraging rundown of Gorsuch’s “conservative” bona fides.
The Greatest Story Never Told: Syrian Christians Applaud Muslim Travel Ban – It must have caused barrels of crocodile tears to flow when the WaPo news-desk editor accepted for publication the copy from journalist Jose delReal that bore the title: ‘Trump is right, in a way’: These Christian Syrians in Pa. back the travel ban. One can just imagine the Pelosi-like gnashing of teeth and wailing that must have ensued in that bullpen and was then amplified in the SJW quarters on social media.
DeceptiCONNED: Gorsuch Is A Trojan Horse, Handing out Trojans – Even more ridiculous than the banshee squeals of Pelosi, Lofgren, Richards and the other Wiccan priests over Gorsuch’s nomination are the “conservatives” who remain convinced Gorsuch is a pro-choice hack. The “Say No To Gorsuch For SCOTUS Pick campaign is filled with conjecture, illogic and presumptions made that are an insult to the concept of Federalism as I point out here on Twitter:

Why Don’t The
Boy Gay Scouts Of America Sodom Just Get The Orgy Badges On Already? – If I didn’t read this then verify it I wouldn’t believe it: The Boy Scouts are now openly accepting little girls who think they’re little boys into scouting. This totally vindicates those parents and scout leaders who fled the organization when it admitted youth homosexuals and predatory adult ones in as “Masters”; knowing that once that bow had been breached the hordes of Soddom would never rest until the Scouts are no longer. The next obvious assault will be to remove the ancient, chivalrous pledge of the scouts. here is how I think it will read in the very near future. “I promise to do my best by Ellen DeGeneres and GLAAD, to wage war on God and his church, so help me Ba’al.”
DeceptiCONNED: “Conservatives” Ordered To Begin Rebuilding Valhalla By Reading German Gnostics Instead of Aquinas – I often read the “intellectual” writings of the professoriate with great wonder: how can these men of such lettered achievement (i.e. PhD et al) be so ignorant in the field of sound philosophical thinking! No Christian settler of Valhalla (the City On The Hill) can make a logical case that to build a city that guides and protects its citizens journey toward a Holy death and a Blessed Eternity, would counsel the study of German gnostics or for that matter, German philosophers at all! Yet, in reading my marching orders today at The Imaginative Conservative, that is precisely what I am told to do (if I profess “conservatism” which I don’t). “Whether or not President Trump is successful with a principled nationalistic agenda or with a more pragmatic one, more traditionally-oriented conservative intellectuals must do some serious thinking, either acceding to nationalism or pragmatism or finding a new story. As Mr. Lilla’s analysis suggests, they must start with Voegelin.” No, because “nationalism” is only good when the “nation” is a Christian one and you won’t find that in Vegelin’s mysticism. Good grief, Brother Francis, where are you now!?
Corporatists Smackdown: Making Small Business Great Again – Yesterday I watched President Trump meet with small business leaders at the White House. They had a discussion about the biggest issue that plagues successful small business: The Federales in cahoots with Big Bidness, have saturated the federal register with hundreds of thousands of laws aimed specifically at giving the corporatists a distinct advantage over the entrepreneur. I listened to President trum, accurately explain the WHY of multiplying regulations, thinking, this guy actually gets it! Watch the video yourself (fast forward to the 09:16 mark). Brian Knight has some observations on the regulatory cuts here and I note that Knight is well-versed in the dark art of regulation while holding tenure at a private university; an example of the sickness that has infected almost all governmental affairs: name a “policy” and I can show you someone who makes their “living” by monitoring and reporting/studying it. THIS is what drives the Deep State’s perverse profiteering FROM the spoils of government the rest of us toil under.
The Sheople’s Remorse? Polls Show ‘Muricans Are Shocked Trump Does What He Promised – Almost as if on cue from the Angry, Ugly Women For D & C’s on D.C., Gallup pollsters report that the ‘Murican sheople have judged President Trump more unpopular, faster than any President…EVER. The fact that Gallup has dashed out to report such a thing is indicative of the hoi polloi’s ravenous appetite for an increasing stream of gibberish to consume. Recall last week’s essay item from Allan Jacobs “The Fierce Tyranny of Now” and Jacobs’ observation that ‘Muricans have been neutered of any attachment to real contemplation and instead, hypnotically bounce from outrage to outrage. Now comes “Will Hadrian-The Last Roman” with a keen observation on the future fascism of anti-Trump rioters. “There is no intellectual depth to their passion, it’s rootless, and that’s what’s scary. It would take a car bomb in Philadelphia, for the pendulum to swing rapidly to the other side turning these rainbow flag waving ‘safe space’ millennials, into swastika praising Fascists. Passion without intellect is a fire that will burn down our entire civilisation.” That burn is coming in the form of importing vast amounts of Muslims into “Christian” populations. Like the Vendee and Cristeros, folks, even if our communities are rebuilt and strong, the Blues i.e. SJW’s will come in search of us. Vivo Cristo Rey!
Radio Killed The Talk-Radio Star – The massive upheaval that clobbered the newspaper publishing, magazine publishing and book publishing feields will next clobber TV and movies and then finish the analogue media apocalypse by doing in what remains of terrestrial radio. That last prediction comes from y/t not essay author Nick Bilton who is spot on with the future of the Has-Been Media. “But [the sloth seen on TV show sets] reinforces an eventuality that seems both increasingly obvious and uncomfortable—one that might occur to you every time you stream Fringe or watch a former ingénue try to re-invent herself as a social-media icon or athleisure-wear founder: Hollywood, as we once knew it, is over.” The future of broadcast radio will be similarly affected, with consolidation coming soon to digital-mobile platforms. If Clear Channel et al are not met in the breach and mom and pop channels like CRUSADE are not supported, the end of Talk-Radio as we once knew it is over.
Trump Admin Week 1, Both Parties Have Been Served Notice: You’re Fired – At the end of the first glorious week of the Presidency of Donald Trump, one thing has emerged that no one denies: he is not your grandfather’s President or for that matter your great-great-great grandpappy’s either. As Peggy Noonan points out, what we are being treated to is what a political office looks like when it is occupied by someone who is not a politician. Mike Judge wasn’t far off when he created the character of President Camacho in the film Idiocracy. Camacho abducts, then extorts actor Luke Wilson aka “Joe” into fixing ‘Muricah’s crop problem, threatening him with public execution if Joe cannot produce corn. This may sound ridiculous but the future world depicted in Idiocracy is already here at Ohio State University and President Trump’s impersonation of President Camacho is more helpful than harmful for the residents of Main Street.
The “Extreme Vetting” Of Muslims Will Lead To More Terrorism? – Paul Pillar opines that President Trump’s Executive Order aka Extereme Vetting will actually lead to more terrorism, excludes the historical fact that “terrorism” has been practiced by the Mohammedan since the 7th century without any foreign assistance. “Such a revolution had never been. No earlier attack had been so sudden, so violent or so permanently successful. Within a score of years from the first assault in 634 the Christian Levant had gone: Syria, the cradle of the Faith, and Egypt with Alexandria, the mighty Christian See. Within a lifetime half the wealth and nearly half the territory of the Christian Roman Empire was in the hands of Mohammedan masters and officials, and the mass of the population was becoming affected more and more by this new thing.” Read the whole book “Heresies” by Belloc here and especially the chapter on the Mohammedans. No foreign encouragement or outrageous act was needed to rile up the marauders of the Mediteranean that President Jefferson was forced to deal with either.
What To Do If You “Wake Up White” By Ohio State University – When I was going to school, there were glass encased boxes mounted on the walls of the hallways that read “In case of emergency, break glass”. Now, at Ohio State “University”, there are classes where students are taught what to do in the emergency of “waking up white”. From the course study guide:
- Waking up White: What it means to accept your legacy, for better and worse
- White privilege: unpacking the invisible knapsack
- Here’s the perfect explanation for why White people need to stop saying #AllLivesMatter
Folks, there is no longer a joke that fits these ludicrous excuses for “higher education” because they are becoming dangerous. Richard Weave wrote the famous words “Ideas have consequences” and bearing that in mind, what will the consequences be of indoctrinating a generation of children into denying their genetic construction of race and sex?
Why Building A Wall Begins The Process Of Building Unity – Patrick J Buchanan sees the building of the wall on our Southern border as more than just a protection from invasion but rather as a metaphorical erection of a wall around the contagion that is the plague of Mammon’s revolutions, begun in the 60’s, that continue the ruin of souls to this day. As Buchanan sees this, the battle lines are now drawn between Main Street ‘Murciah and Porn Street America: “In 1960, we were a Western Christian country. Ninety percent of our people traced their roots to Europe. Ninety percent bore some connection to the Christian faith. To the tens of millions for whom Trump appeals, what the wall represents is our last chance to preserve that nation and people. To many on the cosmopolitan left, ethnic or national identity is not only not worth fighting for, it is not even worth preserving. It is a form of atavistic tribalism or racism. The Trump wall then touches on the great struggle of our age.”
The End Of The UN, Let Us Pray? – President Trump’s Main Street “skins” just keep getting tacked up on the wall of his drawing room at Trump tower. In addition to the monstrous bureaucracy, the EPA, Hillary’s hags at the State Department now comes the Executive Order that begins the dismantling of the twisted web of corruption and collusion that previous, crooked Presidents have constructed in around and through the sewers of the United Nations. The language Trump used in his Order of a Trump Tower sized wrecking ball now making its way toward the Upper West Side of Manhattan, is damning. According to the NY Times: “The draft order also calls for terminating funding for any organization that “is controlled or substantially influenced by any state that sponsors terrorism” or is blamed for the persecution of marginalized groups or any other systematic violation of human rights. The order calls for then enacting “at least a 40 percent overall decrease” in remaining United States funding toward international organizations.” There are other signs of caution here, folks, the E.O. also has paeans aimed in an “Israel First” direction. Stay on guard, but hopeful.
DeceptiCONNED: The Lame Resurrection of The Haggard Charge of “Isolationist” – When the term “Muricah First” is heard by a Neocon, the hard-coded into their DNA reaction is to yell: “Anti-Semite! then Isolationist!”. No one ever bothers to flesh out either of the arguments because the mere toxicity of the “anti-semitism” charge is scorched-earth nuclear. You will recall that the charge was effectively leveled by the Bushies against Pat Buchanan in 1992. But WHAT does it actually mean and where do we see this “isolation”? Well, like unicorns, any deluded soul that can make a Truth based case that the U.S. is “isolated” from the rest of the world can also make a living herding unicorns. That doesn’t stop The Week’s Scott Galupo from wading into the Judgement Pornosphere™ and accusing President Trump of “Muricah First” anti-semitism, blah blah blah. Phillip Jenkins explains why “Murciah First” is a welcome change from “bomb, bomb, bomb” first and ask widows and orphans questions later.
Trump’s “‘Murican Carnage” Is Real And The Cult of Death Its Benefactor – In his inaugural speech President Trump mentioned that “this carnage must stop”. Amen. Author Justin Fox took a look at some stats from the CDC to prove out Trump’s point and as you’ll read in the piece, our star-spangled awesomeness in killing is on the rise. Mammon, the father of this cult of death, is beaming like any proud father would be. Fox: “It is the homicides, drug overdoses and suicides, though, that seem to best fit what Trump was talking about in his speech. It’s hard to tell yet whether the recent rise in the homicide rate is a blip or the sign of a new trend, but the rise in drug deaths and suicides has been going on for a decade-plus…” This is a direct result of what we call the Cult of Death which we can now see, really is a cult that realkly does bring about death. Abortions aren’t counted in the “carnage”, imagine the curse, the “pox upon” this land this must be endgendering. Oremus, folks, oremus.
Angry, Ugly Women To Trump: We’ll Be Back – The Doyenne Of Vulgar Vulva Presenters, Sandra Fluke, vows to ramp up the opposition to President Trump.
Too Many Tyrants And Not Enough Executive’s [Orders] – The Usual Suspects are in warp factor 9 over President Trump’s issuing of 3 executive orders yesterday, this is NOT a shockuh. What is shocking is the historical record on Executive Orders. One can see by viewing the list, by President, which of those who have sought to rule the hoi polloi out here, actually were madmen and Franklin DelanoBama Roosevelt takes the grand-prize. President Trump has a long way to go before pulling even with Obama’s 183 E.O.’s. Ain’t actual history fun!?
The “Vulgar” Monster That Is Trump Was Created By The TV Show Friends – Now that I’ve got your attention, watch the video by “j.ournal/poems” for a recap of much of what we have discussed on the Mike CHurch Show the last 5 years: morals and modesty matter.
Headline of The Day: Progressives Destroyed Normalcy & Are Now Shocked Trump Isn’t Normal – G.K. Chesterton’s joke that you can make a story out of a hero among dragons but not out of a dragon among dragons is applicable here. Those who have given us a 15 character alphanumeric code to determine the sex of humans that can be perfectly carried out with two characters now insist that Donald Trump is not one of us. That Trump in his unique, conceited demeanor is unfit to lead because he is not, well, normal. OK, what human traits or habits or manner of speaking IS normal? The sad fact is the perpetually complaining emperors have no clothes for it is they who have conquered normalcy by allegedly conquering tradition and replacing it with nothing. A Tradition from last week is no tradition at all if it entails the recollection that Chris who was a transitioning to male female is now transitioning to bi-sexual female. Daniel Payne at The Federalist nails this lunacy with good humor and gravitas. “In Donald Trump, with his admittedly dangerous, devil-may-care attitude, progressives have stumbled upon the value of conserving norms and traditions.” Maybe Donald Trump should begin his inauguration speech by proclaiming that he is transitioning from citizen to President and ask for P to be added to LGBTQrstlne-P!?
Angry, Ugly Women Unite To Plea For More Baby Killing – One of the most depressing things to witness in the era of the sexually perverted, confused and obsessed are the diabolical musings of so many women lusting for an increase in abortions i.e. baby killings. At least when the Aztecs did it, they had a purpose i.e. changing the weather, bringing good harvests etc, but what purpose does the never-ending wailing for increased abortion serve? I have previously written that perhaps The Fetus Dumpling Gang, led by Cher and Scarlett Johanssen, might erect an altar on The Mall at next Saturday’s “March for Women” and sacrifice a farm animal while reenacting one of the murder ceremonies from Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto. There, to the true demon-gods of the Americas, they can “pray” for more illicit sex followed by a rise in Planned Parenthood’s stock price. But seriously, this is disturbing, macabre behavior. As Heather Wilhelm points out, besides abortion, what exactly is the point? “The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.” The “left” is in an expanding state of disorder folks which should reinforce, in your minds, that a Return To Order is in play and more importantly that error can only produce more diabolical error.
It’s January 2017 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 limitsI 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.”
