Veritas et Sapientia – “Even though they repressed these memories, however, the reality is that the Founders drew from an essentially medieval and Catholic intellectual wellspring when they both drafted the Constitution and articulated and subsequently elaborated its underlying political philosophy.” Andrew Latham, The Medieval & Catholic Roots of ‘Murican Democracy

Jonah Goldberg FTW!? Yes, For The First Time, I Admit It!
National Review Online and the magazine version have strayed so far from anything that can be called “Conservative” that I rarely read it any more unlessI need to counter a Just War argument; Jonah Goldberg has been one of the cheerleaders of never-ending war and the super-state as centralized provider of all things ‘Murican and good, it just needs to be managed by people like… Jonah Goldberg. I what he is billing as his farewell to the NRO, Goldberg seems to have actually seen the err of his ways and has written a pretty good critique of the echo-chamber he labored to bring about. Here’s a sample.
The idea that a vast, and vastly diverse, continental nation can be united in a singular conception of national purpose that gives everyone a sense of meaning and belonging is just as ludicrous when ornamented with right-wing verbiage as it is when it comes out of the mouth of Wilson, Obama, or the vast horde running for the Democratic nomination. It’s even more dangerous because it would make the race to statism bipartisan, with no serious movement arguing for the ideas and ideals that made this country great. Again, the solution isn’t to get the best right-wing technocrats to run the economy and the culture. It’s to deny the state the power to run either. Send power back to the communities where people live. If North Dakota wants to be a theocracy, that’s fine by me as long as the Bill of Rights is respected. If California wants to turn itself into Caligula’s court, I’ll criticize it, but go for it. [emphasis mine – MC]
I’m always on the lookout for signs that subsidiarity is returning to political thought and this is as good an example as I’ve seen.
What Abortion Really Is: A Boomlet & Millennial Copout
This passage from Federica Matthewes Greene nails the principle reason why 60 million ‘Muricans have been killed in utero: it’s the easiest way to get out of the responsibility and maturity of parenthood.
We expected that abortion would be rare. What we didn’t realize was that, once abortion becomes available, it becomes the most attractive option for everyone around the pregnant woman. If she has an abortion, it’s like the pregnancy never existed. No one is inconvenienced. It doesn’t cause trouble for the father of the baby, or her boss, or the person in charge of her college scholarship. It won’t embarrass her mom and dad. Abortion is like a funnel; it promises to solve all the problems at once. So there is significant pressure on a woman to choose abortion, rather than adoption or parenting.
Nailed it! Recall Grace Emily Stark’s seminal and everlasting essay: Babies Make Families:
Yes, children can strain marriages, and no parent among us would say that motherhood and fatherhood are easy tickets to marital bliss. But the commitments and relationships forged by having children can—and should—bind us to one another. As a parent, it is clearer to me now than ever before that babies bring a greater connection between individual members of the same family, and also between different families. After all, who among us parents doesn’t have people in their lives whom they never would have met if not for their children? These stronger connections are the very bedrock of a strong, thriving society, and our leaders would do well to encourage all of us to continue building these foundations, one baby at a time.
I’ve quote Grace Emily dozens of times on The Mike Church Show and used parts of that essay in talks that I’ve given and it always leads someone to ask me where they can read the essay. Here’s a clue, don’t just read the essay, make it come true!
Dr. Taylor Marshall’s Infiltration, The Clown Car, The Modernists Strike Back
Review Hit Piece
Jeff Mirus is the co-founder of Christendom College and the founder of Catholic Culture an online magazine of, well, “Catholic Culture”. He has written a “review” of Dr. Taylor Marshall’s new book Infiltration that amounts to a assassination of not only the book but the “Traditionalist movement”. Here’s my tweet on the scandal, The Modernists Strikes Back.

The Bloom Is Off The Rainbow Rose
When Cardinal Tobin leaves his powerlifting gym to travel to the Twitterverse and denounce “Gay Pride Month” you know some earth shattering Grace must be coming to play! Now comes the developing, feel-good, Trad story of the year from Italy: Lorenzo Fontana, Italian Minister on The Family has endorsed a reparations for homosexuality procession in Rome!
Brazil Throws In With The Immaculate Heart In A Televised, State Ceremony!
How could we have missed this incredible story from Lifesite News!?
On Tuesday, Brazil was consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in a ceremony that included President Jair Bolsonaro and Bishop Fernando Areas Rifan. The consecration of Brazil, which has more Catholics than any other country, to the Virgin Mary was an initiative of national deputy Eros Biondini and Brazil’s Catholic Parliamentary Front to ask for divine protection and in reparation for sin. “We are doing this for Brazil, for our love for our nation,” Biodini was reported as saying. A statue of the Virgin Mary, which depicts her as she appeared to child visionaries in Fatima, Portugal, was at the ceremony and will remain in a place of honor in the presidential palace.
I watched the video of the ceremony. There was a 90 – 10 split between civilians and Catholic clergy in the ceremony and the President, Bolsonaro can be clearly seen along with a pair of his ministers, praying the Ave Maria! This is another piece of evidence that The Queenship of Mary is upon us, isn’t it!? What do you think.
Unite The Clans! Michael Matt Sees The Slow But Steady Triumph of The BVM’s Immaculate Heart!
Michael Matt is the publisher of The Remnant Newspaper and a friend of The CRUSADE Channel’s Mike Church Show. In his latest video he fleshes out the events happening all around us that point to a significant, global event. I think, Matt is right to continue leaning toward the “do” rather than the “accuse”; matter of fact you can listen to a great conversation on this very thought with Matthew James Wilson here.
Now, THAT’S Italian!
You remember the Prego spaghetti sauce commercial where a couple of watery, discolored sauces are shown at a dinner party as “Italian”, much to the chagrin of the patrons who are avoiding the pasta like its Hillary incarnate until a chef dude bursts in with a jar of Prego (“it’s good” in Italian) sauce to everyone’s delight; one diner after tasting the Prego pasta exclaims, “now that’s Italian!” Well, its no great secret that since the dissolution of the Papal states, Italy has become a watered down, Catholic wasteland that has the grandest churches on earth acting more like for-profit museums than for-salvation cathedrals of worship. Now along comes Italy’s newly elected Deputy Prime Minister, Matteo Salvini, a man who moonlights as archenemy of Papa Francis because of his practical, public Catholicism – “oh noooo, not that!”. Salvini has now caught the eye of Marians the world over for his public acts of piety and devotion to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart including consecrating Italy to the BVM!! This has “outraged The Vatican”.
Pope Francis’ Vatican has been overtly hostile to Italy’s conservative government and Salvini in particular for its stance on mass migration, in particular of Muslims, to Italy and their nationalist policies of putting Italian interests before those of the EU.
If you’re counting that makes two, overt, public acts of consecration by secular “officials” in the month that is Mary’s, May!
It’s The Stupidity, Stupid
David Masciotra is a Literature professor who just wrapped up the spring semester and after exams, asked his LITERATURE students for comments on the class. What’s wrong with ‘Murican colleges in the era of hookups, vast majority female coeds and “safe spaces”? This…
The end of every semester confronts the college instructor with an indignity: reading student “evaluations” of his performance. While the principle of student feedback is sound in theory, the execution exposes the embarrassing frivolity of American culture. Highlights from my literature courses include, and I quote verbatim:
“There was too much reading.”
“He should not assign Leaves of Grass because it makes no sense.”
“I didn’t like the class because it has nothing to do with my major, but the professor was pretty good. He wears cool boots and shirts!”
Don John of Manhattan Vanquishes The Mueller Horde
Headline of The Day: Mueller Just Proved His Entire Operation Was A Political Hit Job That Trampled The Rule Of Law. Sean Davis and I agree: Mueller’s #nothing poboy, which makes a poor sandwich, pathetic, basically reveals what President Trump has been saying all along: there was no smoke, no fire only soaking wet kindling.
Mueller claimed his report spoke for itself, then put together a completely unnecessary press conference more than a month after his report’s public release, in which he not just spoke for the report, but expounded on the new legal standards he created to govern its conclusions. These are the actions not of an impartial and independent investigator, but of a scheming political operative. None of this is any surprise to anyone who has followed Mueller’s tenure in government. As FBI director, Mueller repeatedly misused and abused the authority granted to him by Congress.
Of course, anyone living outside the Mordor on The Potomac bubble knew from the get-go that the whole shebang was a political witch hunt that demoncrats hoped would accidentally stumble upon something actionable; alas, Don John of Manhattan, receives another providential acquittal.
Cubs Player Shows Christian Compassion After Foul Ball Strikes a 4 Year Old Girl
You have to watch the video but be warned, Albert Amora Jr.’s breaking down into tears after his foul ball struck a 4 year old child might bring you to tears.
Almora Jr. was visibly distraught after the fourth-inning hit in Minute Maid Park in Houston. “As soon as I hit it, the first person I locked eyes on was her,” Almora said after the game. “I had to keep my composure at that at bat, but when that half-inning was over, I just couldn’t hold it anymore.”
Amora concluded as any humble, Christian man should.
“With God willing, I’ll be having a relationship with this little girl for the rest of my life,” Almora said.
For the child’s recovery and Amora to keep his promise, God willing, Mother of Mercy, oremus!
Pro-Abort Yankees Threaten Economic Sanctions For Pro-Life Southern States
Folks, the uncanny similarities, between the run up to Lincoln’s war of aggression against Southern States and the Southern, pro-life alignment of states courageously making abortion illegal, are stunning. Now Netflix and Imagine Entertainment and are threatening Georgia with pulling out a “multi-billion dollars industry” if Georgia’s wonderful new ban on abortion survives the eugencist’s at the ACLU’s attempt to use the judicial system to continue the killing. In case you didn’t know, Imagine Entertainment is co-owned by director Ron Howard who is directing the bio pic on J.D. Vance Hillbilly Eligy. That the kiddie porn hucksters at Netflix have a leg to morally stand on is dubious at best but folks, look at what is happening here. Yankee libs actually think that the slaughter of innocent human life can be made acceptable if enough jobs are created by its proponents! This is why I’ve been talking for 4 years now about the need to leave these corrupt, diabolical “mainstreams” and create our own other wise a porn-addicted, social media brainwashed public can be easily swayed to choose Apollo 13 (Ron Howard) over Gosnell.
The Bilderberg Group Is Meeting To Plan Your Future Drive To Work
In 1992 I was made aware of this looming group of globally powerful megalomaniacs who met at this thing called the Bilderberg Conference. Inside, goats and then 13 year old virgin girls were sacrificed to Baphomet before the group plotted the takeover of world currencies or implemented the designs of UN, New World Order cabalists. Now today comes the headline and the story:
Confirmed: Secretive Bilderberg Meeting to be held in Switzerland from May 30th – The yearly Bilderberg talk-fest, which dates back to 1954, features a guest list of around 130 people from Europe and North America including everyone from royals to business tycoons and academics. A highly secretive affair without a fixed agenda, the Bilderberg Meeting is regular fodder for conspiracy theorists who believe its participants act as a secret world government.
So why do these Alex Jones’ job security types meet?
According to the official Bilderberg website, discussions are held under the Chatham House Rule, which means participants can use any information they receive during the meeting but cannot reveal its source.
At this point in my vocation, maybe the CRUSADE Channel should JOIN the Bilderberg group and secure our financial future the old fashioned way: use someone else’s money!?
Pence Wouldn’t Fight Sodomites But He’ll Send Your Sons To Fight On The Ice World of Hoth
Saturday at the West Point graduation Veep Mike Pence basically promised the cadets that they would see live battle during their lifetimes. Veteran Daniel Davis finds Pence’s remarks “disturbing”.
On Saturday, Vice President Mike Pence told the graduating class of the U.S. Military Academy that the world is “a dangerous place” and that future combat isn’t a possibility, but a near-sure deal. “It is a virtual certainty that you will fight on a battlefield for America at some point in your life,” he said. “It will happen.”
Wow, just wow. Pence is showing himself to be the chicken hawk neocon’s neocon. Allow me to take a crack at explaining what Pence means here: The United States military isn’t a military built to defend our borders from invasions and insure domestic tranquility, it is instead a global police force with unilateral power to invade and “fight for America” wherever warmongers like John Bolton think needs “regime change” or whatever excuse of the day used to “justify” our lethal bellicosity.
Time To Call Up Some Chestertonian Distributism For Small Town ‘Muricah
Our small town of Madisonville, population >2000 residents, has recently allowed the construction of a 2 story monstrous “strip mall” with an “erotic” clothing shop as “the anchor” and then topped it off by banning having chickens in the yard. Casey Chalk sees developments like this as an escalation of gigantism and he’s correct.
When Cops Become Peace Officers, The People Win
This story from Slidell, LA shows what happens when police officers become “peace officers” – think Andy Griffith.
Singleton and Peck first crossed paths about 5:30 a.m. Monday when Peck spotted her walking over the Front Street Bridge. Concerned for her safety, he “quickly whipped around” his vehicle before noticing she was in a Wal-Mart uniform. After learning she was headed to the Northshore Boulevard store, Peck said “m’am, that’s a really long walk, jump in,” according to the post. The pair chatted along the way about religion, life lessons and how she knew “no matter what” she needed to get to work. Not having a car was no excuse, she said, adding that she made the journey on foot at least once a week.
Mrs. Singleton wound up having a local car dealer GIVE her a “new car!!”, all because a Peace Officer acted as he should in his community. Bravo, Officer Peck, bravo. Now THAT’S chivalry!.
“Catholic” School Girls Demand Right To Dress Like Tramps
Folks, has it really come to this!? Now maybe some will see the dress “code” of “yoga pants” as the pornographic immodest threat Colleen Hammond and others have rallied against.
Just when you think it can’t get any worse: #Catholic school girls and their mothers demand the right to dress like their slut friends. Think of all the upskirt #Snapchats they might miss! Note the lack of hemline in the “protest” pic! https://t.co/mZhVj81aj7 #WednesdayWisdom pic.twitter.com/jB4VV563ZP

Catholic school girls dress is an abomination and is the result of what Pope Pius XI said immodesty in dress would lead to.
The Man I Made The World’s Second Most Powerful Gets One Right, Steve Bannon makes a headline and a good one according to my friend The Hoov.
He’s not entirely wrong here. When I worked at Microsoft Huawei was one of the phone manufacturers that we worked with and Microsoft was one the reasons it came to the United States. I remember standing on the sidewalk outside of my building on Microsoft campus as the Chinese military caravan drove Xi Jinping to campus to talk with the board. SEE: https://news.microsoft.com/features/chinese-president-xi-jinping-visits-microsoft-sees-potential-of-new-technology/
Huawei is a state owned hardware company that is complementary to state-owned China Mobile – the largest telecom company in the world by number of customers and infrastructure. Huawei is the largest phone manufacturer in China -because they wanted to build hardware to run on their telecom network (which is more for state surveillance than communication).
I don’t know about you but I am ready to return to using am radio transmission and dusting off my family crest “C” and wax, letter seal kit.
Finally: Someone Mentions To Don John That He Needs Congress’s Permission To Bomb Iran
Gene Healey nails it at the American Conservative:
If the administration can’t be convinced to stand down [from preemptively bombing Iran], the House of Representatives should launch a preemptive strike of its own. They should credibly threaten to impeach the president if he goes to war without congressional authorization.
I totally agree and in fact, I made the case for President Obama’s impeachment when he unilaterally decided to invade and bomb Libya, then assist in the assassination of Libya’s legitimate leader, Mohmar Ghadaffi, who had previously
The South’s Gonna Do It Again!
I’m telling you right now, the actions we are seeing in state houses of the Deep South are linked and are part of paradigm shift that is underway – the question is now: will the Federal Judiciary try and stop the momentum by “striking down” the legitimate acts of southern legislatures; and if they do, will Trump sit silent?; will the legislatures that passed these acts sit idly by or will we see a repeat of 1776 and 1861? Just this morning, the Alabama legislature passed what is the most manly version of an anti-abortion act we’ve seen yet-it is almost-dare I say – Catholic – in that it demands penance for all involved in committing this most grave, evil of mortal sins.
Thanks Gal Queda! You’ved Ruined Marriage Prospects For Good Women
Anna Hitchings is smart, beautiful and Catholic and she is also lonely and desperate because there is almost no available Catholic men who could become her husband. The prospects are so bleak that Anna has taken to writing and lecturing about the matter as does here. Note who the ultimate winner is in this race to soy boy.
Yet one important side-effect of all this that gets little attention is how tough this new environment has become for women, especially Christian women, to find good husbands. The situation is so dire there is now an emerging trend of women abandoning their faith and religious beliefs for the sake of romantic relationships. [emphasis mine-MC]
So Beelzebub is capturing souls when they leave the Faith and then cementing his grip on them when they begin having casual sex or even worse, shacking up to “try the cow before buying the milk”. Anna praises Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson for leading young men in the right direction;
No man could ever replace these things, nor would I expect him to, and it concerns me deeply that more and more women are losing sight of this axiomatic truth. Do we need more young men on the path to truth and goodness? Of course we do! I’m deeply grateful for the influence figures like Dr Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro are having on so many men, young and old. We should be doing all we can to help steer men in the right direction and find truth and meaning in their lives. Men who are guided by good principles, who have purpose and direction in life, are not only deeply attractive to women, they are invaluable assets to society. Yet many women I see and talk to feel as if their chance is never going to come.
if she means politically, I agree but is political mischief really what’s the cause of all this or is it a complete lack of masculine, chivalrous formation backed up by a zealous practice of the Faith and most importantly, a devotion to The model of all femininity: Our Lady. Join us at the Raising Chivalrous Young Men Conference and we’ll help you with this, Anna!
You Are My Sunshine, My Only Sunshine…
The state that has given me a culture and geography to love, hate, live and choose not to live, Louisiana, has just responded to the Cult of Death by telling them we Who Dats will NOT become New Yorkers, reveling in the legal practice of infanticide.
Introduced by Democrat pro-life state Rep. Katrina Jackson, the Love Life Constitutional Amendment (HB 425) would amend the state constitution to say there is no right to an abortion or taxpayer funding for abortions in the state. The bill must pass both chambers of the Republican-dominated legislature by a two-thirds majority and then receive voter approval to be added to the state charter. In a video distributed by Louisiana Right to Life, Jackson stated, “Together with our current state law, we’ll ensure that all unborn babies after Roe v. Wade is overturned.” When she introduced the bill, she said, “By passing this we can rest assured that, together with our state law, we will never become like New York, which recently legalized abortion up to the very moment before birth.”
The state song of Louisiana is You Are My Sunshine, wrotten by former governor Jimmy Davis. It has never been more true than today… I love you Louisiana!
Mike Church, Too Catholic For Satellite Radio
Who Is Mike Church? Mike Church is the most aggressive yet charming promoter of using radio and TV media to restore Christian Order and promote God, Family and Country, on daily talk-radio & TV, in the U.S. today. Using his razor sharp wit and broadcast skills honed through 26 years in the business, there’s simply no other voice as unique and effective as Mike’s in all of broadcasting. Read the entire Mike Church Story as told by internationally renowned author Christopher Ferrara, a regular guest on The Mike Church Show, here.
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
Co-hosted by Mike Church and now available On-Demand!
It’s May 2019 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?”
