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 – “It is not merely that cooperation with a tiny chirping sect would be valueless politically; more, such an association would tend to discredit the conservatives, giving aid and comfort to the collectivist adversaries of ordered freedom. When heaven and earth have passed away, perhaps the conservative mind and the libertarian mind may be joined in synthesis-but not until then. Meanwhile, I venture to predict, the more intelligent and conscientious persons within the libertarian remnant will tend to settle for politics as the art of the possible, so shifting into the conservative camp. At the Last Judgment, libertarianism may find itself reduced to a minority of one, and its name will be not Legion, but Rothbard.” – Russell Kirk, Chirping Sectaries
Will Your Kids Go transgender or Will YOU Go Carmelite? – Many schools have now begun classes and the impact of Obama’s tyrannical, gender ideology edict, issued to every school system last May, is now being felt. I have been warning since last February that the agenda of the HB2 crowd is to win your kids over to the ideology of secular humanism, that there is no Creation, no natural order outside what is needed to promote climate change ands that there is no God. The evidence that this analysis was correct can now be tragically seen in the thousands of stories shocked parents are now telling about their kindergarten aged children. Still don’t believe me? Explain this: “So imagine my surprise when I received a communication from the grade school principal stating that there was a gender non-conforming (had to Google that) student in the school and that the kindergarten through fifth graders would be read a book called, “My Princess Boy” to create a more welcoming environment.” A commenter identifying as a lesbian is shocked as well: “It’s disappointing that “LGBT” organizations are supporting this insanity. As an L from the acronym LGBT, this ideology is not what I want and I do not support it.”
Will YOU Go LGBTQrstlne Or Will You Go Carmelite? – Following the story above, browse over to the 4th Wave Now site to read the horror stories of shocked, gravely concerned, despondent parents who cannot believe the schools they went to as kids have now turned on them and thrown in with Beazlebub’s plot to divorce the created from their Creator. 4th WaveNow’s introduction to their site begins:
“Seemingly overnight, US public schools have been transformed into no-questions-allowed re-education centers for inculcating the notion that children as young as 4 or 5 years old can be innately transgender, and that any student, of any age, who claims to be or “feel like” the opposite sex is entitled to use not just private bathroom stalls, but shared locker rooms and showers designated for the sex s/he “identities with. Parents who have questions about the wisdom of this exercise in social engineering are ignored, marginalized, and even deliberately excluded from decisions about how their children are treated during the school day (and on overnight field trips, as well).”
The Chirping Sectary That Gary Johnson Has Become – “Libertarian” presidential candidate Gary Johnson is a walking, talking, billboard for the case I’ve been building to restore the order in our political affairs. Libertarianism, like so many other isms and “beliefs” has a fatal flaw: because it is not grounded in universal principles it can wander into any particular “belief” it wants and Johnson has now chosen “Climate Change”: “I do think that climate change is occurring, that it is man-caused. One of the proposals that I think is a very libertarian proposal, and I’m just open to this, is taxing carbon emission that may have the result of being self-regulating.”
2016: Angry White Men’s Swan Song – John Daniel Davidson proposes that the era of the white-middle class-working male is coming to a gluttonous, rage filled, porn-addled end…and he’s right. “But the knot of problems now distressing America’s white working class are primarily moral and cultural, not economic or political. There’s nothing the government can do about that. These problems began in the family—or rather, in individual families. Only families and supportive communities can properly address them and, over time, bring renewal.” Presto-Blamo! And just HOW do we go about fixing that? How about turning to role models like St King Louis IX, whose feast day is today.
It’s Good To Be The King: The Life of St King Louis IX – This great Christian King can serve as a model to all chivalrous, Christian males and this brief passage from one of the many biographies written about Louis, shows why: “And if there was any visually impaired person among these poor people, with his own hands the blessed king would put a morsel of bread into [the poor man’s] hand, or he would guide the hand of the poor man to the plate. And furthermore, when there was a visually impaired or weak person there and he had fish before him, the blessed king would take the piece of fish, carefully remove the bones from it with his own hands, dip it in the salt, and then put it in the mouth of the ill person.”
Slick Hillary Accepted Cash From UBS In Broad Daylight As Secretary of State – The Trump campaign is now hammering just another chapter in Hillary’s corrupt tenure as Secretary of State. It isn’t even necessary for me to craft a damning narrative for this diabolical conduct when The Atlantic already wrote one back in 2015: “The Wall Street Journal’s eyebrow-raising story of how the presidential candidate and her husband accepted cash from UBS without any regard for the appearance of impropriety that it created.”
How To Win Offices And Influence People – I could pick from dozens and dozens of stories detailing the illegal and more importantly unethical conduct of the Clinton State Department but parts of this editorial from the National Review will suffice. Hey, even the broken clocks of DeceptiCONS are right twice per day.
“I’m From The Government, And I’m Here To Help The Cajun Navy”, No Seriously! – The heroic efforts of those members of the Acadian Armada aka “The Cajun Navy” are to be rewarded by GOP lawmakers with regulations, licenses and registration fees because they “are a liability”. State Senator Johnathan Perry said in a radio interview yesterday: “At the end of the day, there are going to be two things that are going to be the hurdle when you approach it from the state’s standpoint. Liability is going to be number one for them. They don’t want the liability of someone going out to rescue someone and then not being able to find them (the rescuers) and, secondly, there’s a cost.” The response to this has been swift and as the Judgement Pornosphere™ usually rolls, vicious and uninformed: “A cost for who!? These guys paid for their own boats, gas, supplies, flashlights and boudin to snack on. None of that matters though because government has drank its own kool-aid that the only public services allowed to operate in public must bow to the power of the state.” BUT, watch the video explanation that Perry posted in response to the Judgement Porn™ and I think you’ll see that what he is actually doing is leading as a STATE Senator should. We’ll need Jonathan Perry’s in an Independent Louisiana!
Time To Pull Up The “Melting Pot” Draw Bridge – We have heard the “racist” roar of the Media Industrial Complex over Trumpzilla’s call to immediately cease the immigration of people from Orthodox Muslim Countries. But what Trump is advocating is basically the posture of all our European ancestors and has a basis in Christian teaching as well. “But what if we have reasonable concerns about the threats that a particular population, or elements within it, pose to our political community’s pursuit of those same goods? Aquinas’s teaching on charity doesn’t demand that the governing authority of a political community risk the common good to assist outside groups who could endanger the common good.” So, Christian brothers [sistahs] it is beyond time to pull up the drawbridge, build the moat and relearn how to govern ourselves under the New Christendom.
Will You Go Trans or Will You Go Carmelite? – A federal judge tells the Obama Administration that their nationalized, nay globalized, nay from here to the ice world of Hoth and back, policy of letting children choose from a menu of “genders” and then codifying that into bathroom, locker room, overnight field trip policy is a bad idea and they don’t have the authority to do so. But don’t pop the champagne corks just yet because the cabal of Ba’al has just begun their assault on God’s natural order and vows that all schools will ultimately “do the right thing”. It wasn’t too long ago that doing “the right thing” meant respecting little girls privacy and protecting them from hormonally charged, sinful advances of boys. Recall that what is driving this revolt against the natural order is the sex drenched environment these same “activists” have been busy implementing in schools since the 1970’s.
Will You Go Trans or Carmelite II – The Anne Arundel School system is practicing child abuse in letting their misguided and likely, mentally disordered, charges to determine their “gender” and sleep among those of the opposite sex. Watch and know, these people are school system-employed adults, and are coming to a school board meeting near you.
The Constitution Has Not Failed, The Imbeciles Governed By It Have – Bradley Birzer to Adam Fuller: Do you believe that the Constitution has failed?
Fuller: [T]o answer your question, I don’t think the Constitution has failed. A document is incapable of failing. The fact that people sin doesn’t mean the Bible has failed, does it? The failure is on us. We have failed to adhere to it.
Trump And Brexit Are Not Signs of Collapse – James Kalb posits that Brexit and Trump are signs of a societal collapse and thus, are not positive developments but negative ones: “People recognize on some level that the situation is bizarre, and an accepted system of identities rather like the inherited one is basic to human life. That is the fundamental meaning of Brexit and the Trump phenomenon, and it’s the reason people committed to the tendency of events describe those developments as irrational, bigoted, willfully stupid, and so on…So it seems that those intensely alarmed by Brexit and Trump correctly sense a profound threat to the global managed system that has been the implicit goal of public policy since the Second World War.” [emphasis mine] But James, it is the “managed” part of the global system that Trump and Brexit are the secular antidotes for. Prior to the rise of [r]epublican, “We the People” government at the expense of that made and restrained under Christ, the only “global managed” items were global in their transcendence. It is more probable that without intending to do so, the Trump #Brexit class are making the first decisive moves BACK from that transcendent guided world.
You Can’t Make This Stuff Up: Lesbian “Couple”, Bonnie & Claire, Robs Nun of Rosary – File this one under Dazed and Confused. A pair of street urchin lesbians, accost, then rob a nun of her rosary when they discover her “purse was empty save for the rosary. When caught by the cops, the recidivist duo have a half dozen stolen cell-phones and other electronic devices but no rosary. How fitting that women divorced from the grace of their God-granted sex would not find worth in a direct connection to the Mother of God.
2003 Hillary Helps Start War In Iraq, 500k Die-2016, Trump Campaigns, MIC Proclaims Nuclear Holocaust – Mrs Clinton voted for and promoted the Iraq Invasion, the “troop surge” and continuing body counts in Iraq; followed that with staring Egyptians after “liberating them”; then for an encore, she instigated the assassination plot against Ghadaffi and assisted the French in turning Libya into a Hades on earth for the Mohammedans. But never fear the body counts, the MIC has sprung into action to warn that Trump’s campaign will lead to a thermo-nuclear war and the end of days. Don’t believe me? Here’s the LA Times headline: Before Trump, Americans hadn’t worried this much about nuclear weapons since the Cold War.
Dear Leader: You Flooded Peasants in LA, Won’t Get A Gumbo Summit From Me – The fact that the President has largely ignored the tragedy and plight of Louisiana’s 400,000 flooded residents has now made it to the editorial page of the state’s largest newspaper, The Baton Rouge Advocate: “[President] Johnson knew that presidents can powerfully demonstrate what they stand for by where they stand. In standing shoulder to shoulder with citizens who had borne the brunt of a terrible storm, he let them know that in their misery, they were not alone.”
The Sleeping Menace To Internet Liberty: The FCC – Whoever is elected President this November, will get to appoint replacements for all 5 FCC commissioners whose terms will all expire by 2018. Think that’s not a HUGE issue? Consider that the last vote on “net neutrality”, the scam to insulate mega-media and mega broadband corps from competition from insurgent entities like The Veritas Radio Network. Here is the last vote on “net neutrality”, which has passed the FCC but is bottled up in court. Put simply, a new commission, hostile to this tyranny, can ditch the net neutrality rules and power grab with a new vote. Do you think the doyenne of the donor media will effect that?
WANTED: Real Men and Real Men Don’t Do Porn – Watch this video featuring Elizabeth Smart, made by the advocacy group “Fight The New Drug”. The drug in question is porn and Smart reveals that the pervert who kidnapped and repeatedly raped her, had an addiction to porn that was psychotic. Smart’s narrative is hard to watch and is not for the easily offended but it is necessary in the effort to confront this diabolical addiction. Recall that the Man of Virtue, yields not to molesting 12 year old girls and compulsive acts of impurity that include lustful thoughts inspired by digital images on our smartphones, the Man of Virtue conquers and quells these Sins and defends the 12 year old and the 40 year old from perverted obsessions.
Why Trump Will Win 48-2: The Media Industrial Complex’s Diabolical Bias – It has become undeniable that the MIC is in the can for Obama and Hillary but the last 10 days has left more evidence than O.J. The Hill newspaper, not a partisan rag, can no longer cotton the deafening silence the MIC has applied to President Obama’s belligerent snub to the 400,000 Louisianans devastated by Katrina 2: “2005: A Republican president takes three days to survey a natural disaster in Louisiana and Mississippi after cutting a vacation short. The media at the time declares that was way too long, far too insensitive, even pushes a narrative that labels him racist. 2016: A Democratic president will not only cut a vacation short in any capacity to survey a natural disaster in Louisiana — the worst of any kind to hit the country in four years — but hasn’t even made any public statements on it. Not one. The media of 2016 now yawns. Basically indicates its no big deal and if there is actual criticism, it doesn’t lead a cable news hour or go anywhere near a front page.”
The End of White, Christian, America – The latest book to proclaim that the demise of Christianity in the never consecrated New Christendom, ‘Muricah, that is, is now a fait accompli and that all that is left to do is tally up the carnage, is The End of White Christian America. This dystopian view doesn’t take into account the fact that these self inflicted wounds against organized faith coincides with the rise of the new civil religion of ‘Muricanism. In other words, one has replaced the other so there is still faith it has just become “faith” in apostasy. The old adage that those who believe in nothing will fall for anything is being played out in real time and awaits a return to order.
Restoring The Order By Defending The Order –
It’s The Culture of Death Stupid – On the surface it appears that what is driving the #TrumpTrain is a longing for an economic gilded age for the middle class. While that may be one of the symptoms of our current crisis it is not the cause, the flight from Tradition and morality is The Cause. John Daniel Davidson, recognizes this and writes of it: “The truth is, entire swaths of working- and middle-class white America are now afflicted by something much worse than foreign trade or immigration. Their communities are in the throes of a moral and cultural crisis—a breakdown of the family and social institutions that has given rise to drug addiction, welfare dependency, and simmering resentment.” Note well: Davidson counsels acceptance of the “global citizen” narrative and the age old, fracturing ‘Murican practice of “voting with your feet” which is not a recipe for shoring up community and tradition.
It’s August 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.”
