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. 2017 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 -I have spent all my life under a Communist regime and I will tell you that a society without any objective legal scale is a terrible one indeed. But a society with no other scale than the legal one is not quite worthy of man either. A society which is based on the letter of the law and never reaches any higher is taking very scarce advantage of the high level of human possibilities. – Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Commencement Address to Harvard Graduates, 08 June, 1978
THE MIKE CHURCH SHOW IS NOW AVAILABLE TO LISTEN TO LIVE! ON APPLE’S ITUNES!
The Libtards Have Lost, Mr Lebowsky, Do You hear Me!? The Libtards Have Lost!! – Phillip Blond reviews the critically savaged book “Post-Liberalism And Human Future” and after being the 50 millionth writer/pundit to diagnoses the rot of our society, winds up asking the correct Question du jour:
Where should we look for those new leaders and this new unified idealism?
Blond’s conclusion won’t please very many people but that doesn’t make him wrong.
I confess that, outside of black Pentecostal churches and a few glorious Anglicans and Evangelicals, I have largely given up on Protestantism as offering an institutional alternative. But I have seen it in traditional Catholic movements, where a whole civic pathway exists to form Christian youth.
If I were to change a few words, an army could be raised to join the fight:
But I have seen it in traditional Conservative movements, where a whole civic pathway exists to form Conservative youth.
And therein lies the wicked rub: there is no single definition of a “conservative” available in our pluralistic society. You can figure out the workable course of action from there.
USA! USA! Has Squandered $5.6 TRILLION in “War On Terror”, Don’t You Feel “Safer” Now, ‘Muricah? – The facts speak for themselves but hey, what’s another $5.6 TRILLION in debt between ‘Murican heretics?
The Apostles Were Communists All along And Nobody Knew It – David Bentley Hart, a “Christian Scholar”, claims on the pages of the NY Times that the early Christians, even the Apostles themselves, were “communists”. This arises from Hart’s new translation of the New Testament for Yale (WHY another translation is needed is another question). Hart’s confusion is sewn in the meaning of the term “communist”. As I have reminded readers over the years “communism” is not merely a system of government where peasants lose and bourgeois bullies win, it is a philosophy that doubles as a major heresy: it rejects God in toto. Here’s the core of Hart’s argument:
They lived a common life and voluntarily enjoyed a community of possessions. The murmur subsided, though not necessarily the disquiet. Not that anyone should have been surprised. If the communism of the apostolic church is a secret, it is a startlingly open one. Vaguer terms like “communalist” or “communitarian” might make the facts sound more palatable but cannot change them. The New Testament’s Book of Acts tells us that in Jerusalem the first converts to the proclamation of the risen Christ affirmed their new faith by living in a single dwelling, selling their fixed holdings, redistributing their wealth “as each needed” and owning all possessions communally.
Note the society allowed the liberty to sell things so that God might be served. This is equivocation of the highest order.
Wait A Minute, The Apostles Were Receivers Of COMMUNION, Not Communists!? – Meanwhile in Gotham City, Pascal Emmanuel Gobry, correctly asserts, with literary flourishes, the correct view of “commune” for Professor Hart, then presents something I have been writing and speaking of the last 4 years: The Capitalist paradigm that we live in and teach our children IS a heresy.
Professor Hart is wrong and the church is right. There are vocations, and some Christians are called to total poverty; others are called to live in the world, and therefore to engage in market transactions, to earn wages and to accumulate savings to provide economic security for their families. No church father, catechism, encyclical or council has ever preached the opposite. The fact that my vocation is perfectly acceptable to God is why Jesus’ thunderous words still apply to me. Jesus’ dramatic, hyperbolic words are a reminder that even while maintaining my vocation as a petit bourgeois, I can always be more radical in how I love and how I give to my fellow man.
Correct. For a complete view of this, listen to Joseph Pearce and my series on Small Is Still Beautiful, available for On-Demand download here and the book is here.
The Demons Are Ascendent On YouBoob And They’ve Come For The Kids… – The NY Times, among others (read this essay here) has noticed the automated “bots” YouTube has employed to crank out BILLIONS of hours of children’s video series and shorts that feature no humans and in most videos nothing human-like. Here’s one example from the Times opening paragraph.
The 10-minute clip, “PAW Patrol Babies Pretend to Die Suicide by Annabelle Hypnotized,” was a nightmarish imitation of an animated series in which a boy and a pack of rescue dogs protect their community from troubles like runaway kittens and rock slides. In the video Isaac watched, some characters died and one walked off a roof after being hypnotized by a likeness of a doll possessed by a demon.
Demon!? (“Mitter Chur, puh-lease!”) Still think I am focusing too much on the demonic and have “lost my way”? This stuff is real, there are real children being basically exploited and trained to be servants to these “bots” with no indication of what the purpose of theses videos are or who is responsible for them. In our dawning robot future, the idea that Moloch isn’t way ahead of the “robots as playmates” wave that is coming is just naive. Why? The YouBoob bots, ARE robots.
Hollywood Doubles Down On Kiddie Porn, Proclaims 13 Yr Old Girl “Hottest” – The entertainment rag W has a lead story that proclaims “Television Has Never Been Hotter!” and then there’s this.
“here is a closer look at the hottest TV stars of the year.”
Those ranks include the 13 year old star of Stranger Things, Millie Brown. Yes, 13 years old. According to Rachel Blevins, Spanish translations of the W story translated the title
Well citizen, nothing to see here, save for the usual exploitation of children on the holy altar of capitalism. By the by, Stranger Things is a Netflix original appearing right next to Big Mouth.
The Red November of The Bolsheviks Alive And Well In ‘Muricah Today – 100 years ago yesterday, the Bolshevik Revolution began in earnest and we know the end result of that lethal power in mankind’s history. Stella Morabito points out that the first 3 of the 6 phases of Communism have already occurred right here in our beloved country and the other three are on deck and looming. Oh, and by the by, Morabito also sees that the demons behind this are ascendent and have come for the children.
Enlisting and confusing the youth. Statist youth leagues have always been a staple of dictators who wish to eliminate family loyalties and religious influences. Although we may not see a Soviet-styled Komsomol in America just yet, there has been an ongoing attack against youth programs that promote self-reliance, independent thought, and the integrity of the family. It’s not just that the Boy Scouts have gone soft. School boards in major districts across the nation are pushing curricula and policies that force children to cater to identity politics, environmentalism, transgenderism, and so much more than children should ever be forced to grapple with.
This is just another reason why the “public” part of nearly any ‘Murican Institution has already been compromised and makes the necessity of forming our own, new mainstreams, an imperative. Just another reason to join The Crusade Channel, today.
We Are ‘Muricah Hear Us Roar – Despite the easily proven fact that the United States escalation of “war against terror” has not produced anything remotely resembling an “end to radical Islam”, we continue to bellow out commands, spend trillions and maim the future of too many households. Then for an encore we bluster about North Korea and after 70 years on that peninsula have nothing to show but hundreds of billions of debt and a resurgent NoKo.
“The U.S. pre-eminence in the days of Desert Storm is history. Yet, the architects of American decline may still be heard denouncing the “isolationists” who opposed their follies and warned what would befall the republic if it listened to them.”
Pat Buchanan wonders when the “America First” president Donald Trump might deviate from this suicide mission called ‘Murican hegemony since “no one is quaking in their boots anymore”?
Devin Patrick Kelley: A Look In The Mirror Of ‘Murican Culture – That’s right, ‘Muricah, the young man that murdered 26 people in a Baptist church was immersed in the low-middle class culture of the day and a sterling example of living life with no view of eternity. From fantasizing about hookups with teenage girls, from fathering children out of wedlock, to bouncing from one civil marriage to the next after civil divorce, to practicing sloth and finally getting his bachelor’s degree in Judgement Pornosphere™, Devin Kelley was just as mom and apple pie as any other middle class loser our culture produces. Lena Dunham and Harvey Weinstein should claim Kelley as their triumphant, logical result of their celluloid wonderlands. To be immersed in the cult o e.g.The Hangover, Honey BooBoo and the myriad of hookup shows on MTV, HBO et al is to be immersed in the world of error and abject sin. Honestly, what do people THINK will be the result of what many of us know to be morally lethal!?
The Solution To Our Ills Or Joseph Pearce Was Right: Smaller IS More Beautiful – Ah the beauty of the discussion of scale, once again is upon us as more and more people realize the futility of saving ‘Muricah and her totalitarian political system. Now comes John Daniel Davidson making the point we have been making since [r]epublican t-shirts and bumper stickers. The mass that is Blobistan, from a scale POV, is unsustainable and part of the problem, but just part.
Pope Benedict XVI was right: it is time now to reconcile ourselves to a smaller, more faithful Church. For serious Christians—will there be any other kind before long?—that will mean integrating their faith so thoroughly into their lives that they risk being labeled a “zealot” or a “fundamentalist” by erstwhile friends and colleagues, and perhaps labeled something worse by the government. It will mean becoming rather strange in the eyes of the world. Benedict said as much in that radio address nearly 50 years ago, when he warned that the Church “will lose many of her social privileges” and “make much bigger demands” on believers.
Key word there is “smaller” and also note “strange” as in becoming strange to the eyes of the world. Kind of like the CRUSADE Channel? Oh how strange it must look to not have rejoined the talk radio mafia in promulgating the star spangled awesomeness that is ‘Muricah and is our savior!
Hollywood Heretics To The Faithful: Drop Dead, Your prayers Didn’t Work In Texas – Actors Will Wheaton and Michael McKean took to that final frontier of intellectual discourse, Twitter, to vent their hatred for prayer and by admission declare themselves apostates.
The murdered victims were in a church. If prayers did anything, they’d still be alive, you worthless sack of sh*t. https://t.co/iGHxPrYrLN
— Wil Wheaton (@wilw) November 5, 2017
Sign Will Wheaton up for Bughul’s Brigades who don’t pray but instead prey upon the souls of the lukewarm: “Christianity is hard, sin and Bughul is easy and the children are so tasty, join us!” G.K. Chesterton seems appropriate here:
“But in the modern world we are primarily confronted with the extraordinary spectacle of people turning to new ideals because they
have not tried the old. Men have not got tired of Christianity; they have never found enough Christianity to get tired of. Men have never wearied of political justice; they have wearied of waiting for it.”
In the same vein we should say that prayers have not been found tried and ineffective but rather have not been tried and thus condemned.
The Demons Arrive In Texas, Claim Atheist’s Soul & 26 Others in 2017 Mass Shooting #2 – “What motivates men to commit acts of evil?” is a question every pundit is asking today but few have the conviction and courage to answer it: we live in a world created to spite The Creator, how else could it turn out? Devin Patrick Keely was a known atheist who boasted of his hatred of God on Facebook and alienated “friends” online.
Patrick Boyce, who attended New Braunfels High School with the killer, told DailyMail.com: ‘He had a kid or two, fairly normal, but kinda quiet and lately seemed depressed. ‘He was the first atheist I met. He went Air Force after high school, got discharged but I don’t know why. Nina Rose Nava, who went to school with the gunman, wrote on Facebook: ‘In (sic) in complete shock! I legit just deleted him off my fb cause I couldn’t stand his post. ‘He was always talking about how people who believe in God we’re stupid and trying to preach his atheism’ Christopher Leo Longoria replied: ‘I removed him off FB for those same reasons! He was being super nagtive (sic) all the timd (sic).’
Just like the Las Vegas shooter, Kelly sought a closed environment, where carnage would be maximized, to execute his demonic plan. The fact that madmen have a growing disregard for human life meaning they have no regard for eternity and the soul, the direct result of a society purged of Christendom and the singular unity of Christian society. While the debate will rage over “gun rights” and the man who shot Kelly to bring his rampage to an end will be exalted as the reason why everyone should 2nd amendment pack, publicly, the ultimate cause will go un-discussed.
The State of Delaware To God: “Drop Dead”, We’ll Choose Race & Gender For Our 5 Year Olds, Pal – The madness continues. The Activist Mommy has a rundown of a story developing in the state of Delaware where legislators will give in to the now pandemic rejection of biological reality. The text of the proposed law is summarized here.
“Regulation 225 violates the right of parents to care for their children without government intrusion. If a student wants to change his/her gender or race, and the school perceives that the student’s parents may not be supportive, the school may bypass the parents (see section 7.3.1 of Regulation 225).”
Like I keep saying, perhaps one of you will spread the word: “The demons are ascendent, they have come for the children and they will not take no for an answer.”
We’re A War-Like People, Maybe We Could Take A Break From Being A War-Crime Like People – Some members of Congress grow the courage to try and reign in the imperial presidency and the warfare state he commands.
12 Year Old Girls & The Lethal Folly Of Religious Plurality – The Swedes continue their self imposed genocide by adding to their non-existent birth-rates, embrace of homosexuality with exceptions for Muslim immigrants to legally “marry” their 12 year old “wives”. Sharia law for blonde haired blue eyed people is here.
The ‘Murican Dream Is Back & Errybody Has It! – New polling shows that 82% of ‘Muricans say they either have the ‘Murican Dream or on their way to getting it. That sounds great doesn’t it until you see the breakdown of who’s paying for the dream and who aint? From ZeroHedge.com of 05 June, 2017:
In May, we were told that the U.S. economy added 138,000 jobs, but that is not even enough to keep up with population growth. However, when you look deeper into the numbers some major red flags quickly emerge. You won’t hear it on the news, but in May the U.S. economy actually lost 367,000 full-time jobs. That is an absolutely nightmarish figure, and it confirms the fact that economic activity is starting to dramatically slow down.
But wait, that’s just the unemployment picture currently. Let’s look at how many ‘Muricans, pursuing and achieving their “dream” are even in the workforce, a number that declines monthly.
In May, the government added a staggering 608,000 Americans into the “not in the labor force” category. So now the number of working age Americans “not in the labor force” has reached a total of 94.98 million. When you add that total to the number of Americans that are “officially” unemployed (6.86 million), you get a grand total of 101.84 million. In other words, when you round up to the nearest million you get a grand total of 102 million Americans that do not have a job right now.
In other words, just a shade under 60% of all ‘Muricans eligible for full-time work, are actually working full-time a number that was at 91% in 1990. Millenial’s ‘Murican Dream is not having to have a vocation to achieve the dream because every 3rd person out there has two to pay for his. Some dream.
SJW Loon Lido Pimienta Makes South Park Into Hard Hitting Drama – We are now in the age of fiat reality: reality is whatever you say/think it is. You just can’t make this stuff up folks:
The Halifax Pop Explosion music festival is apologizing for the actions of a volunteer who interrupted a performance by Polaris Prize-winning singer Lido Pimienta with “overt racism.” A statement on behalf of the festival’s board of directors addresses the singer directly and promises to make changes to improve “anti-oppression and anti-racism training” over the next year. “We are sorry that one of our volunteers interrupted your art, your show, and your audience by being aggressive and racist,” reads a Facebook post signed by vice-chairman Georgie Dudka.
It’s getting so ridiculous now, South Park has become hard hitting drama. Sad. Then there’s this from the “story”. Read my whole report on this story here.
The Constitution’s Judges To Our Crucified Lord: “Drop Dead…But Don’t Do It On Federal Land”! – Pat Buchanan is disturbed by the latest act of judicial tyranny: 2 federal judges have ordered the Peace Cross to be torn down from a cemetery in Maryland. As Buchanan explains, the Peace Cross watches over the war-dead: “The Peace Cross, in Bladensburg, Maryland, was a 40-feet concrete memorial to the 49 sons of Prince George’s County lost in the Great War. Paid for by county families and the American Legion, it had stood since 1925. Before the Beltway was built, Peace Cross, at the junction of U.S. Route 1 and Maryland Route 450, was a landmark to us all.”
Too bad sayeth our federal overlords. There’s no room in this country for your religion or its symbols, this is ‘Muricah and our flag is our cross!
Rejected By Sodomites, Kevin Spacey Should Go Carmelite – Actor Kevin Spacey is the latest Hollywood hedonist to have been publicly shamed into admitting that what these pervert creeps vend on film they have practiced in private. Recall in the second season finale of “House of Cards”, Spacey’s character performed a menage trois with a males Secret Service agent and his wife. I never finished watching that episode and never watched HOC again telling Mittus Chur “anyone that can ‘act’ out perversion like that must practice actual perversion”. I didn’t know then that Spacey was an avowed sodomite who had practiced his sin on young boys. Interestingly, Spacey, for this sin, has been roundly rejected by Hollywood’s growing list of Sodomy Inc.
Blessing Las Vegas: Stephen Paddock’s Hotel Room “Blessed” By Priest – 5 weeks after the horrific massacre of 58 souls at the Las Vegas Mandalay Bay Casino there remains no explanation for the diabolical act save for the one offered by yours truly: Stephen Paddock had preternatural assistance in paying back the loan of extravagant wealth and hedonism, to the loaning institution: Hell Inc. Now comes the story that a Roman Catholic priest was asked to bless the room that Paddock paid his loan back in and the priest felt an “evil” there. Here is part of what Father Kiley told the Las Vegas Journal review about the room blessing. I’ve emphasized the relevant parts.
“I felt like I was being pushed back, like don’t come in here.” As he walked toward Paddock’s room, feeling on edge, he began to say the Catholic prayer, “‘St. Michael, the Archangel,’ to defend us in battle. “When I stepped in the room, I really felt a real profound silence,” he said. Kiley could sense the evil in the room and what had happened there, he said. Like the rest of the world, the priest could not comprehend what had taken place. “This is what we call the mystery of evil. You cannot use reason to put the pieces of this together.”
Reason does not and will not explain what I have maintained is a supernatural event. Fr. Kiley’s story ADDS to the significant body of evidence we’ve presented on this site and the Mike Church Show.
Stephen Paddock Attempted To Live Like A Hugh Hefneresque Playboy, Still Think Porn Doesn’t “Hurt Anyone”? – Read the WaPo’s lengthy bio of Stephen Paddock and you’ll discover a portrait of a jet-setting playboy with a lust for high stakes gambling, world travel and seclusion inside his version of the “Playboy Mansion”, demonstrating the rejection of community the Marxist lives his life by.
Diane McKay lived next door to Paddock and Danley at their Reno home until July, when McKay moved away. Danley wasn’t forthcoming about her life, and Paddock was unfriendly, McKay recalled. She only saw him in the mornings, when he went to the clubhouse to work out. “He was weird. Kept to himself,” said McKay, 79. “It was like living next to nothing. . . . You can at least be grumpy, something. He was just nothing, quiet.” The couple kept their blinds closed, but sometimes Paddock would open the garage door, revealing an enormous safe the size of a refrigerator.
So the practitioner of Marx’s materialistic, there is no God existence is only seen when vanity calls him to the gym. Read the whole story to see how sad a life lived in the “care” of Mammon ultimately wields the same hatred of humanity that has driven the demons since The Fall.
So calling out flag and anthem idolatry now makes one an elitist!?: No. “Elitist” is the hyperbolic belief that ‘Muricah is “special” and our view of how the rest of the world oughtta live must be obeyed or we’ll enforce it with drones, nukes and sanctions; yeah! USA! USA! USA! If only CATHOLICS thought that way about the New Christendom we are duty-bound to work for with pilgrimages, CRUSADES and Adoration-bombs (look it up): Christ-En-Dom!, Christ-En-Dom!, Christ-En-Dom! Your “country” is where you live and the people you love to call countrymen, it is not this totalitarian melange of ruling masters and their “government”. If you want a star-spangled anthem, try the one belonging to your state if you even know what it is. Better yet, try an enthronement anthem for Our Lady of The America’s, it’s called The Salve Regina.
The “Boycott The NFL” Campaign Proves My Maxim: We’re A War-Like People – We’ve made a sport a center stage for fake patriotism and glad-handed orgies of military superiority to whoever on Earth may be watching. Stephen Beale nails the militarization of football and how USA! USA! chanting, rabid fans have lapped it up.
In fact it has not stopped the war liturgy from playing out on the gridiron at all, and yes, given when and how it was mandated for players to honor it, the national anthem has been used a prop in this near-religious convocation. In recent years, soldier parading, flag-waving, and jumbotron shout-outs to warriors have become de rigueur at NFL games.
Existential support of “the military” for its intended purposes has given way to idolatry and religious devotion to it. Scour social media and marvel, nay be saddened by how many ‘Muricans proclaim themselves as “deplorables, prom MAGA and PRO MILITARY”, while simultaneously fretting about the Russian army which is nearly invisible these days. This is another form of our mass hysteria that holds that only our use and glorification of lethal force is justified and the it is the only force justified. As one WWII general put it, “NUTS!”
It’s November 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 limits. I 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.”
