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.

Chivalry Revives In Colorado
In Father William Slattery’s book . Heroism and Genius, an entire chapter is devoted to the Christian practice of chivalry that developed in Christendom during the wars of the 9th-11th century and was perfected by knightly orders who went off to go fight the CRUSADES. One of the characteristics of the chivalry knight was his vow to forever defend the damsel. To be the one who stepped between the damsel and a sexually charged colleague. To defend her virginal purity as well as his own even unto death and to cause no harm to her, ever. Meet Brendan Johnson, an 18 year old high school athlete from Classical Academy… indeed. Brendan forfeited 5 matches this year including 1 in the semi-finals of the state championship because he would not wrestle Angel Rios, a girl! His reasons are what are most important – this is chivalry straight up!
“And I guess the physical aggression, too. I don’t want to treat a young lady like that on the mat. Or off the mat. And not to disrespect the heart or the effort that she’s put in. That’s not what I want to do, either.”
This is straight out of the knight’s pledges. G.K. Chesterton wrote about chivalry being the act of man choosing to elevate woman to a status that was above his own.
Chivalry might be called the baptism of Feudalism. It was an attempt to bring the justice and even the logic of the Catholic creed into a military system which already existed; to turn its discipline into an initiation and its inequalities[Pg 68] into a hierarchy. To the comparative grace of the new period belongs, of course, that considerable cultus of the dignity of woman, to which the word “chivalry” is often narrowed. – G.K. Chesterton
I think Chesterton would like to have met Brendan Johnson!
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.
Told Ya So… Papa Francis Previous Synods Were Staged To Make Homosexuality Normalized
In dozens of monologues and interviews including ones with The Remnant’s Chris Ferrara and LePanto’s Michael Hichborn, I maintained that the “synods on the family” were but ruses for the ultimate prize: “gay marriage” and open acceptance of homosexuality by the Catholic Church. Well, lo and behold, author Frederic Martel boasts of this very project in his book Out of The Closet. Maike Hickson writes on the subject.
Dr. Frédéric Martel, the homosexual French author of the new book In the Closet of the Vatican, claimed in his chapter titled “The Synod” how Pope Francis launched his “secret plan” to steer the Church toward accepting adultery and homosexuality during the two Synods on the Family….Martel stressed Kasper’s role during the two synods and called him “the ‘brains’ of the Synod.” He also stated: “The fact remains that the preparatory text [of the synod] followed the Kasper line and suggested a loosening of the Church’s position on sacraments for divorcees and on homosexuality.” “The Vatican was now willing,” Martel continued, “to acknowledge the ‘qualities’ of young people living together, remarried divorcees and homosexual civil partnerships.” These were the three main aspects of the reform agenda and the “Francis revolution.” [emphasis mine-MC]
Viewing this revelation that isn’t a revelation for readers here, one can’t help but conclude that the current Homopalooza “Summit” taking place in Rome is simply a smokescreen being conducted to provide cover for what’s coming next: a papal pronouncement on the validity of homosexuality as a practice.
The New Aztec Empire Meets The Activist Mommy
Elizabeth, the Activist Mommy, has organized a national day of mourning over the New Aztec Empires, New
York Tenochtitlan’s infanticidal maniac enabling act. Tomorrow, Christians are asked to not shop, wear black and repent for abortion. I don’t want to sound like a Correcty Correctorson here but I SUGGEST you can add:
Pray the rosary with at least 2 or more for an end to the legal protections for abortion
Fast – offer a meal up as reparation
Visit the Blessed Sacrament and spend time in adoration, begging his mercy
Say the Holy Face chaplet and beg of Our Lord “Arise O’ Lord and let thy enemies be scattered, and let them that hate thee flee from before thy face”.
The WIC – Woke Industrial Complex – Is A Hoaxters Paradise
Jussie Smollet is being called a liar by the resource strapped Chicago Police Department that is now actively investigating Smollet for staging his own hate crime. Chicago residents busy ducking actual thugs with real guns and real designs on maiming and killing should be outraged that Smollet’s case was taken as an “I believe him” from the get-go because we’re dealing with a double minority: a homosexual, black man. It is now known that Smollet perpetrated a hoax. How many resources were squandered?
As many as 20 detectives were assigned to the case in the weeks following Smollett’s report, and nearly every camera in the Streeterville neighborhood was checked for video that might show the attack. Some police sources privately expressed doubts after finding little, if any, corroborating evidence or video of a crime.
Photojournalist Andy Ngo is on top of the story and the CPD’s over the top efforts to treat the whole case as “no big deal”. Nothing to see here citizen, move along!
Source tells me that the rank and file officers at CPD are angry at how their PR is coddling Smollett with comments like this. He is wanted for a felony offense & his location remains unknown. https://t.co/0HXLNfVUuz pic.twitter.com/XgAnmKsBZn

Today Is the Feast of Saint Peter Damian & The Start of Papa Francis’ Homopalooza
Matt Gaspers asks the question: Did the Holy Father begin this conference on homosexual acts with children on the feast of Saint Peter Damien, on purpose?
it is interesting to note that the four-day meeting happens to coincide with the feast of St. Peter Damian (Feb. 21, post-conciliar calendar; Feb. 23, traditional Roman calendar), author of the Book of Gomorrah and the Church’s most zealous champion against clerical sodomy, which was rampant during his lifetime (A.D. 1007-1072) as it is today.
Listen to my interview with Matt where we discuss this very topic, just last Thursday!
If All Abortion Is Murder, Why Are Laws Divided Into “Tri-mesters”?
Edward Fesser confronts Ramesh Ponnoru’s lukewarm ninny defense of “all abortion is murder” and asks the question: if infanticide is committed at 35 weeks pregnancy, why isn’t it infanticide at 20 weeks or 12 weeks? Fesser, applying Aquinas, states what most “pro-lifers” won’t: there is no objective difference.
For it is manifest that infanticide is gravely evil, and it is manifest that late-term abortion differs in no morally significant way from infanticide. Hence it takes a great deal of self-deception and moral depravity to approve of late-term abortion. A person of basic decency and intellectual honesty would never approve of such a thing. But the people in group (a) also realize that early-term abortion is on a par with late-term abortion. Hence the depravity and self-deception they exhibit in approving of the latter seeps over into their approval of the former. They have no excuse for favoring even early-term abortion.
I’ll add that given the formal and final causes of created human life, for Catholics, there can be and must be no distinction.
Say Hello To The Catholic, $250,000,000 Smile!
Attorneys for Nicholas Sandmann have followed through on their threat to sue any media entity that published defamatory accounts of the Covington Catholic Boys High School’s participation at the March For Life and their now famous confrontation with bullies, racists and astro-turf professional race hucksters. Attorney Lyn Hill and Todd V. McMurty have filed a $250,000,000 lawsuit against the WaPo and boy howdy has it stirred the earth!
Today, @LLinWood and I filed a suit seeking $250 million dollars in damages on behalf of Nicholas Sandmann against The Washington Post. This is just the first of many. https://t.co/ZYTXoGRU7S … #CovingtonBoys #CovingtonCatholic pic.twitter.com/bhMMjmpLXO
— Todd V. McMurtry (@FitLwyr) February 19, 2019
Claire Chretien has a great, detailed report at LifeSite News.
The lawsuit says the Washington Post engaged in “unlawful and bullying conduct at Nicholas.” The 115-pound 16-year-old, who was on his first-ever out-of-state field trip without his family, “suffered substantial reputational and emotional harm” as a result of the Post’s false reporting, his lawyers say. “The Post’s campaign to target Nicholas in furtherance of its political agenda was carried out by using its vast financial resources to enter the bully pulpit by publishing a series of false and defamatory print and online articles which effectively provided a worldwide megaphone to Phillips and other anti-Trump individuals and entities to smear a young boy who was in its view an acceptable casualty in their war against the President.”
An “acceptable casualty”! That is, in military terms, “collateral damage” only this time, the damage has been done to the Post!
The Homopalooza At The Vatican
Some days it is embarrassing to admit publicly that you are a Catholic. Not that I am ever ashamed of membership in the Church Militant and The Mystical Body of Christ or of wearing my devotion to Our Lady on all my sleeves, lapel and vest pockets; I’m talking about the human element that wears dresses and acts like men who wear dresses…. and make up and wigs; the out of the closet homosexuals and their hierarchical army of defenders including now, Pope Francis, and this sham of a “Meeting on Homosexuality” at the Vatican next week. A priest writes to Rod Dreher (by the way, Fathers, you can write these notes to ME TOO!: email@example.com – just sayin’).
This big meeting is supposed to deal with the biggest scandal in the church in the last 200 years. And what do we see among the speakers? Where is the Prefect, or even the Secretary (the 2nd in command) of the CDF, the body responsible for adjudicating cases of priest abuse? Where is the Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, or a similarly highly placed, experienced and credible canonist? And where is there even a single presentation on the canonical aspects of the delicts associated with priestly abuse? Where is there a presentation on the failure of bishops and the Holy See itself to follow canon law in dealing with these delicts? None and nowhere.
Got that? None and nowhere i.e. it ain’t happening. It is beginning to appear that only death itself shines as a ray of hope for this most despicable epoch in modern Church history to come to an end. It might help us to keep in mind, Blessed John Henry Newman, as we watch Farrell and Cupich sleaze their way through disingenuous presentations on the horror and remorse of pederasty while jeeping the sin of consesual sodomy simmering on the hot plate er…seat in the green room.
The whole course of Christianity from the first … is but one series of troubles and disorders. Every century is like every other, and to those who live in it seems worse than all times before it. The Church is ever ailing … Religion seems ever expiring, schisms dominant, the light of truth dim, its adherents scattered. The cause of Christ is ever in its last agony. -Blessed John Henry Newman
Welcome to next week’s Homopalooza.
Francis via Martel: Hey Catholic Faithful, Go Homo Or Go Home!
The much anticipated book on the homosexual invasion and occupation of The Vatican by Frederic Martel is out and the National Catholic Register has a lengthy preview that consists of excerpts from the book and boy howdy is this thing a rainbow firecracker but NOT like most think. Martel’s preview basically tells the story of the heroic Pope Francis, trying to call out the morally “rigid” conservatives that he personally knows to be homosexuals! That’s right, when the Holy Father rails against “rigidity”, he, according to Martel, is not railing against home-schooling Latin Mass attendees, oh no sir, he is railing against the “conservatives” who outwardly appear to be defenders of dogmatic Catholic Church teaching on morals, but are closeted homosexuals and therefore hypocrites. In this brief excerpt Martel uses the terms “homophobia, homophobic” 6 times yet he clearly doesn’t know what a homophobe is. The shockingly clear message in reading this excerpt is this: Pope Francis is going to normalize homosexuality and gay culture in The Catholic Church and if you don’t like it, find another “religion”. Don’t believe me? Sample this:
Have the pope and his liberal theologians realized that priestly celibacy was a failure? Did they guess that the battle launched against gays by the Vatican of John Paul II and Benedict XVI was a war that was lost in advance? One that would be turned against the Church as soon as everyone became aware of its real motivations: a war waged between closeted homosexuals and gays who had come out! War between gays, in short….They even suggest, when questioned, that by forbidding priests to marry, the Church has become sociologically homosexual; and that by imposing a continence that is against nature, and a secretive culture, it is partly responsible for the tens of thousands of instances of sexual abuse that are undermining it from within. They also know that sexual desire, and homosexual desire first and foremost, is one of the main engines and wellsprings of Vatican life. Francis knows that he has to move on the Church’s stance, and that he will only be able to do this at the cost of a ruthless battle against all those who use sexual morality and homophobia to conceal their own hypocrisies and double lives. But there we have it: these secret homosexuals are in the majority, powerful and influential and, in terms of the most ‘rigid’ among them, very noisy in their homophobic utterances. Here is the pope: threatened and attacked on all sides and generally criticized, Francis is said to be ‘among the wolves’. It’s not quite true: he’s among the queens. [emphasis mine – MC]
Got that? Cardinal’s Burke, and the other 3 that signed the Dubia are basically being called out as sodomites who have duped the brain-dead masses of “rigid-traditionalists” into thinking that, going forward, Catholicism can remain Catholic and stand against the world of sexual, moral sins. Put another way, now that Cardinals are getting the rainbow hits in secret, its ok for the laity to practice them in public i.e. go homo or go home.
Yes Virginia, There Is A Deep State O’Claus
Last night, Andrew McCabe the former #2 LEO in ‘Muricah at FBI, told the sordid tale of how he and other Deep State apparatchiks conspired to use the 25th Amendment to have President Trump removed from office. Robert Merry asks the question: Do You Believe In The Deep State Now?
Now we have a report from a participant of those meetings that top officials of the country’s premier law enforcement entity sat around and pondered how to bring down a sitting president they didn’t like. The Times even says that McCabe “confirmed” an earlier report that deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein suggested wearing a wire in meetings with Trump to incriminate him and make him more vulnerable to the plot.
Merry References Gareth Porter’s stunning exposé at Consortium News, that contains the following.
The discussion by senior FBI officials of a counter-intelligence investigation of Trump has become part of the political struggle over Trump mainly because of the stories in the Times and CNN. The role of the authors of those stories illustrates how corporate journalists casually embraced the ultimate conspiracy theory – that the president of the United States was acting as a Russian stooge. The revelation that it was turned against a sitting president, however briefly, is a warning signal that national security bureaucrats and their media allies are now moving more aggressively to delegitimize any opposition to the new Cold War.
Read Porter’s entire essay and then answer the question: Do you believe in the Deep State now?
There Is A New CRUSADE… In Spain
Rod Dreher met with some young, Catholic men in Spain last month and has finally filed a report on the encounter. The young men revealed to Dreher what we have been hoping to hear from young ‘Murican men: the new CRUSADE is a spiritual one that requires young men to doff the skinny jeans, learn to be knights and defend their real country and its one, True Church.
We are not pessimistic, but realistic. The diagnosis is dark, but we are all mature Catholics, we have reached a certain age, we know our catechism. We know the Lord has already won. The diagnosis might be dark, but the battle is already won. The question is, are you going to be part of winning side? – Ramon, young, Spanish CRUSADER
At a meeting of Catholic youth in Spain, one of the other New CRUSADERS said this in a speech he gave.
Christ promised that the gates of hell would not prevail over the Church. He did not promise anything, however, about our episcopal conferences, our dioceses, our parishes or movements. Our families, our souls, are not safe from being swallowed up in this battle: either we stand up against evil, or we stand up to fight, or nothing will prevent us from being one more in the long list of well-meaning people paving the way to hell.
Wow, makes me want to pack up the Wagon Queen Family Truckster and head to Madrid.
The Demoncrats Are Eating Their Young (they bothered to have)
It strains the average mind to witness the ever growing list of Demoncrat party “minorities” seeing as how old fuddy-duddy minorities like gays have ballooned into the entire alphabet of genders and cis’s with new ones created everyday and… you get the picture. Now the Demoncrats have taken a kinda minority, a 26 yr old female underachiever, and turned her into their petulant, insipid queen. This can only produce more underachieving, ever-weirder “minorities”, right? Patrick J. Buchanan thinks so.
The LBGTQ community is now in court demanding all the rights and protections of the civil rights laws of the ’60s. This will bring gay groups into constant collisions with religious communities that adhere to traditional moral views on homosexuality. The minorities of color in the Democratic coalition are growing, as the base of the GOP is aging and shrinking. But these minorities are also becoming more rivalrous, competitive and demanding. And the further they move left, they more they move outside the American mainstream.
“Error creates more error” is an understatement here. I ask the question: how long before a Demoncrat strongman takes over and pistol whips the dividers into rank and file uniters? You’ll get this:

Why Valentine’s Day Is Named After a Saint
Fr. Perricone reminds us of the REAL Saint Valentine’s story and there are no Hershey Kisses or Rose bouquets involved.
For all of that, this friendship was not so deep. A highly insulted Claudius arrested Valentine and sentenced him to death. After the ingenious tortures of the Roman imperium, Valentine succumbed to death on February 14, 269 AD. Veneration quickly arose among the Roman people, and not too long afterwards, St. Valentine was named Patron of Those in Love.
It is amazing that Valentine’s Day is another Catholic holiday, named for a canonized saint that means nothing more than “what did you get your Valentine today?” Time to reclaim those Catholic holidays, including Mardi Gras, and start venerating AND enjoying them for their intended purposes!

Today, the House of Representatives voted 248-177, in favor of passing H.J. Res. 37, which invokes the War Powers Resolution of 1973 to end unconstitutional U.S. military participation in the Saudi-led coalition’s war in Yemen. Rep. Khanna issued the below statement in response.
“Today is historic. This is the culmination of several years of legislative efforts to end our involvement in the Saudi war in Yemen. I’m encouraged by the direction people are pushing our party to take on foreign policy, promoting restraint and human rights and with the sense they want Congress to play a much larger role.
Now let the alms, acts of penance and incrimination of those responsible begin. The MIC should suffer severe cuts to its bloody largesse for this as a trend to bring its corrupt end about begins.
Mardis Gras Krewe Will Roll With Black Face Cause That’s How They Roll
You have to hand it to the Krewe of Zulu, they have withstood their own city’s attempt to “wake” them for 4 decades and are now telling anyone who asks that “yes, we are rolling in blackface, like we always do, now go buy some Zulu coconuts”. Well, sort of….
“One is make-believe, the other is real life,” said George Rainey, who will ride in blackface as King Zulu when the parade rolls on March 5. “We’ve been doing it for 115 years.”
Mardi Gras, it must be said, is completely Catholic in its creation and Catholic for most of its history until the revolt of the 1960’s when Krewes named for canonized saints were replaced by drunken, gilded orgies of decadence, Krewe’s named for Roman & Greek god’s of lust and drunkeness.
Nincompoop Green Demoncrats Virtually Assure Trump’s Re-Election
There are some liberals who are in journalism that can fashion honest prose, Damon Linker is one of them and lookie here what he has to say about Ocasio Cortez’s NGD.
“Imagine a general election campaign in which the Republican Party and the Trump campaign supplemented the president’s Twitter-based rabble-rousing and inevitable personal attacks on the Democratic nominee with a resolutely anti-socialist message — with socialism understood in this broad, comprehensive sense. The point wouldn’t be just to raise fears of higher taxes and bigger government but to fold that anxiety into the culture war, where Trump’s political skills are most formidable. ‘It’s me or progressive totalitarianism’ — that’s how Trump wins in 2020.”
It occurs to me that President Trump has become the master of the masterless – liberals – and they continue to play his game.
Daycare Centers – Proof That Marx Won The Cold War Not ‘Muricah
This tweet storm from Oren Cass is just genius following a Sunday, New York Times editorial pining for “universal day care”.
1/ Let’s discuss this remarkable article in @nytimes about the importance of universal daycare. No, not the @KathaPollitt op-ed from Sunday. An article from 1974 about conditions in the Soviet Union, which sound, well… see if this remind you of anything. https://t.co/b2GYG098Ez

What the Soviets knew was that daycare was a stealth killer of families, something ‘Muricans continue to buy into without admitting the Truth all around them.
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.
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 February 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?”
