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 -“In the land lit by that neighbouring star, whose blaze is the broad daylight, there are many and very various things motionless and moving. There moves among them a race that is in its relation to others a race of gods. The fact is not lessened but emphasised because it can behave like a race of demons. Its distinction is not an individual illusion, like one bird pluming itself on its own plumes; it is a solid and a many-sided thing. It is demonstrated in the very speculations that have led to its being denied. That men, the gods of this lower world, are linked with it in various ways is true; but it is another aspect of the same truth. That they grow as the grass grows and walk as the beasts walk is a secondary necessity that sharpens the primary distinction. It is like saying that a magician must after all have the appearance of a man; or that even the fairies could not dance without feet. It has lately been the fashion to focus the mind entirely on these mild and subordinate resemblances and to forget the main fact altogether.– Gilbert Keith Chesterton, The Everlasting Man
The New Sodom And Gomorrah Rise & Wall Street Cheers – Americans homeowners can take pride in these prices. At the nadir of the housing market in 2012, homebuyers had to pay an average premium of almost 29%, or $209 per square foot, to live in communities with a higher share of gay, lesbian and bisexual residents. This year, homebuyers will need to pay a premium of nearly 37%, or $320 per square foot, to live in these same neighborhoods, according to a study released Thursday by real-estate website Trulia and online dating site OKCupid IAC, -0.32% The conclusion? “Clearly, America’s gay neighborhoods have recovered at a faster rate than non-gay neighborhoods.”
CNN’s Fake News Campaign Against President Trump Was Revealed By COMEY’S Testimony – Back on May 9th, the White House released the letter that President Trump sent to former FBI Director James Comey informing him that he’d been relieved of his duties at the FBI. Within that letter, Trump awkwardly inserted a sentence thanking Comey for informing him “on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation.” Here’s the full sentence (full post here): “While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgement of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau.”
First They Came For The Foster Transgender’s And I Said Nothing – Pro-family advocates warn Bill 89 gives the state more power to seize children from families that oppose the LGBTQ and gender ideology agenda, and allows government agencies to effectively ban couples who disagree with that agenda from fostering or adopting children.
13-YEAR-OLD GIRL COMMITS SUICIDE AFTER PARENTS LET HER LIVE AS BOY – A 13-year-old suffering from gender dysphoria took her life in late May after her parents, Erin and Matt Georgia, allowed her to identify and present herself as a boy. Jane Marie Georgia was allowed to begin her “transition” in sixth grade, changing her name to “Jay Griffin.” The parents found their daughter dead in her bedroom on Thursday, May 25. In the months leading up to her death, she had been placed on medications for anxiety and depression.
The Truth About Mohammed Is Not Setting Indianapolis Free – A billboard on I-465 outside Indianoplis has what I think is a most appropriate message on it: the Truth about the fake “prophet” Mohammed. This has “outraged” local Muslims who aren’t outraged over Mohammed’s rape of children, marriage to a 6 year old and other well documented crimes. The billboard rises over the skyline under the title “The Perfect Man” and is followed by 6 bullet points including: “married a 6-year-old,” “slave owner & dealer”, “13 wives, 11 at one time”, “beheaded 600 Jews in 1 day”, “Rapist” and “Tortured and killed unbelievers” all of which are accurate and have been described on my radio show by Andrew Bieszad a half dozen times, here’s just one example. From the Indy Star we read “Faryal Khatri, a spokeswoman for the Indianapolis-based Islamic Society of North America, says not only is the billboard not true, it is hurtful to her as a practicing Muslim.” Oh, yeah, ok WHAT part isn’t true and would you like to place a friendly wager on that? Here’s just one recounting and validation of 3 of the 6 charges made above, shall we continue?
Will You Go ‘Murican Gubbmint Or Will You Go Carmelite? – I ask then try and answer this question nearly everyday: how much obedience do I, as a practicing Catholic, owe to the diabolical, Masonic regime that we call The Federal Government. I’ll explain my conclusion on the matter further on, but James Kalb comes close to my take. “Modern government is a different matter. In its totalitarian form it squarely presents the issue of essentially evil government. Such a government expresses the modern tendency to construct ever-expanding systems of purely human origin that end by leaving no room for God or natural law. So it insists that Christianity, if permitted to exist at all, transform itself in its image. How do we respond to it? The Catechism tells us that Regimes whose nature is contrary to the natural law, to the public order, and to the fundamental rights of persons cannot achieve the common good of the nations on which they have been imposed… Authority is exercised legitimately only when it seeks the common good of the group concerned.”
NeoCON to Megyn Kelley: You Interviewed Putin And You LIKED Him!? – Jacob Heilbrun’s snobby dismissal of Megyn Kelley’s interview of Vladimir Putin makes the reader believe that Kelley was interviewing Vlad The Impaler and she didn’t realize how close to becoming the bride of Dracula she was. The portrait Kelley painted in her interview is about the same as our European Correspondent Iben Thranholm paints of him, listen for yourself here.
Meanwhile In Londonistan, Reality Bites: There Are NO Western “Values” To Unite Around – The rallying cry from British political elites, echoed by the noise chamber that is the Industrial Media Complex here in ‘Muricah is so predictable I have to wonder why English chaps bother to leave the local and make statements since we know what those lame excuses for leadership will say. John Daniel Davidson nails this point in his latest here and Davidson’s conclusion is correct, save for one detail, as well: “It is even more embarrassing to admit that we westerners do not much care for these things ourselves anymore—at least not enough to demand that our fellow countrymen, regardless of religion and creed, adopt them and teach their children to revere them. Until we start demanding that kind of unity, Muslim extremists will have room to breathe in the West.” The problem, Mitter Davidson IS religion or more precisely, the lack thereof. Until The Faith is restored and Chesterton’s “Orthodoxy” is read as instruction instead of the subject of an English Lit term paper, this will remain.
“The Lion Of London Bridge” (Warning NSFW) – Meet Roy Larner, the only Briton who didn’t flea the orthodox Muslim butchers on London Bridge last Saturday night. Larner remains hospitalized with a dozen stab wounds suffered while battling the jihadis. I am reminded of The Bee Gees tune “Every Christian Lion Hearted Man Will Show You” and pray to hear of Mr. Larner’s recovery AND Conversion to The Faith!
Abortion, Gay Marriage, Blame The Religious Right? – You read that correctly and George Hawley has some research to back up these claims. What is most intriguing about this latest set of facts is the use of the phrase “leave their churches”, presented as evidence of the decline of religiosity in ‘Muricah and the rise of homosexual and baby killing apostasy that was the result. Hawley’s essay is worth reading but I reached a different conclusion from the same “research” he cites (as if reverence for the Divine can be “researched”): the all-too predictable crackup of “denominations” is what they actually diagnosed. Flying from the unity of The Faith into newly concocted “faiths” is basically error creating a new branch of error thus it was doomed from the start. Orestes Brownson saw this coming back in the 1850’s in his work “The American Republic”, available to Founder’s Pass members here.
Are “Mowed Down Bodies” On Footbridges, REALLY The Price To Be Paid For “Multiculturalism”!? – Megan Opera has asked the question thus: Our political leaders are basically telling us that this kind of terrorism, random and deadly, is the price we have to pay for their policies of multiculturalism and political correctness.” When you put it that way, I wonder what a Gallup Poll would reveal as the “yes” and “no” tallies? Are there really enough SJW’s and smirking, lib apostates to marry this topics question in the affirmative? Will reasonable people, even if they’ve fallen from The Faith, actually commit their kids and grand-kids to a life lived among monsters who demand their conversion to an evil that guarantees Hell? “The politicians are only willing to give speeches about how united we are and how terrorists cannot tear us apart. But the truth—so clear and obvious—is that with every attack the West becomes more and more divided. We are not united, not by a long shot. Before the bodies of the poor souls who were killed Saturday by radical Islamists were even identified, the Left and Right were at one another’s throats. On that score, the terrorists emerge victorious every time.” Correct but there’s another line dividing opposites: the Faithful and the Apostates and that’s where the REAL struggle is. Which side is ‘Muricah on? Clearly she is on the Apostate’s. The next question ought to be “OK, how do The Faithful obtain a divorce from the source of our worldly demise”?
Buchanan: The West Is In A Civilizational Struggle – The 800 lb gorilla in the room is wearing a full length tunic, a checkered head dress and is making change for the kids buying soda at the corner convenience store. Oh, he also happens to be a devout Muslim who has dreams of a paradise obtained by the death of infidels and his own martyrdom. Buchanan asks the question of whether or not these people can remain in the Western countries without a repeat of the atrocities committed in the UK and Egypt of late. Buchanan: “To fight them [jihadis], we are being forced to circumscribe our sovereignty and empower police and intelligence agencies of which free men were once taught to be wary. Wars, it is said, are the death of republics. And we now seem to be caught up in an endless war.” Well, the first move has to be a restoration by affirmation of the Christian Order, anything less will result in this 16 year long struggle become 16 decades.
‘Muricah Needs To Round Us Up Some Muslims And Kill ‘Em All, Says CONGRESSMAN – Clay Higgins, a Louisiana Republican who just happens to be a member of the House of Representin’, urges ‘Muricans to round up the enemies of Christendom and “kill ’em all”. Hey, at least Higgins got the “Christendom” and “enemies” part correct.
Katie Hopkins Is Back But She’s Only Half Right About UK & Islam – But she doesn’t come close to what is needed: restoration of The Church and embrace of Our Lady of Walsingham as Iben Thranholm and I discussed on today’s Mike Church Show – listen here. While Ms. Hopkins is principally correct on diagnosing the crisis, her secular, “pluralistic” society solution can never endure with the Graces needed to restore the Good True and Beautiful and repel Islam. “Our process for dealing with terror cannot be words or vigils. It must be internment and deportation. And we keep deporting until our house is in order. And broader than that, we need to rebuild broken Britain into a secular nation that is host to many religions and none. Where true leadership from those who integrate — such as the beautiful Sikh community — is rewarded. And those who seek to carve out enclaves guided by their religious identity are not housed or funded by the British taxpayer.” The state envisioned by the heretic Locke and made permanent by the never-ending Parliament IS a religion, Katie. An ineffective, lethal and tyrannical religion that elevates then defends abortion, sodomy and embrace of the diabolical cult that is Islam. The antidote to that is the Church of Christ, what Briton has the courage to say that, publicly? Where is the heir to Saint Augustine of Canterbury?
Twitter Is Evil And It Must Be Detsroyed – Damon Linker thinks the rot that is Americanism is embodied in Twitter and thus Twitter must be destroyed. “Twitter is a place where the desire for approval can motivate people who work in politics and the media to mold themselves into what they think their peers and their audience want them to be, which often means more of what they already are.” The brevity of 132 characters is supposed to be the charm of Twitter but it has morphed into statement of existence by # hashtag or !! exclamation.
Jihadis And Their REAL British Flag Revealed – The Daily Mail has republished a Ch 4 News video from last year showing the orthodox Muslim London Bridge killer and his gang unfurling an Islamic flag in broad daylight. This amounts to criminal negligence but where is the outrage? The fact that UK officials knew of the killer’s identity and did nothing tells you everything you need to know about what is really going on here: what started as a scheme to save the welfare state through massive immigration of young taxpayers has diabolically morphed into an all-out effort to save face among apostate Europeans who have no clue of the evil their playing with.
The Deadliest Day In New Orleans This Year – 13 people shot in New Orleans Saturday; most violent day in 2017. Two people were shot dead and 11 people wounded by gunfire Saturday (June 3) in New Orleans, the highest number of people shot in a single day so far in 2017. As of Sunday morning, more than 300 people have been killed or wounded by gunfire in New Orleans — a rate of roughly two people a day. New Orleans police are investigating five separate shootings that occurred Saturday. Here is a timeline of the shootings that occurred and what we know so far.
– Mitch Landrieu Discusses The Violent Weekend In New Orleans – “We’re going to have to change who we are, how we are and how we act”….yeah Mitch, that’s the understatement of the year. Speaking at the news conference Sunday afternoon, Landrieu pointed to “the root cause” fueling violence in the city as access to drugs and alcohol, as well as a lack of reporting by witnesses to violent crimes.
The Paris Accord Epitomizes Why All Bureaucrats Need Term Limits – The United Nations and other international organizations are prime examples of a bureaucracy run amuck to the point of undermining democratic rule and the people’s sovereignty. The Paris climate agreement was always a bureaucratic trap that threatened U.S. sovereignty and undermined international law. It is a good thing President Trump has pulled us out of it. Other nations will be grateful to the United States in the long run.
How U.S. Universities Became Institutions That Close American Minds – The assault on free speech has become so commonplace in U.S. universities that CNN’s Fareed Zakaria felt compelled to speak openly about the obvious: conservatives have been shut out of the marketplace of ideas on American campuses. Of course, it is not just conservative speakers that are shut down on many campuses; it is also conservative ideas in the classroom, or any ideas with which the Left disagrees.
First They Came For The Kids Running Lemonade Stands And I did Nothing…– A small town in Alabama has informed summer job hunting teenagers that they will be breaking the law if they mow lawns for cash without a $110 business license. Wow, folks, rest easy in your beds tonight knowing the blue collar teen-crimi.
WWJD? He’d Call A Priest And Give Maddi’s Dad A Shotgun – My pro-life media colleagues have found a new hero er heroine: 18 year old Maddi Runkles who has made herself famous by promoting her illegitimate pregnancy on Fox News. You see, Maddi signed a pledge at her evangelical high school to abstain from sex, so when the President of the Student Body, Miss Runkles, showed up to school pregnant the school dicd what it does to oath breakers: it denied her graduation and defrocked her of the Presidency. Rather than humbly taking this modest discipline and acknowledging her mistake, Miss Runkles took to the press to protest against the school’s decision. Then a firestorm of support gushed forth as Maddi bravely resisted abortion “no matter the cost”. But wait, how do we know that abortion was an option to begin with. B. What was the cost? and C. MOST importantly: Where is Maddi’s “baby daddy!?”
Let’s Cheer Trump’s Last Climate Tango In Paris – And the 11 most ridiculous, bark-humping, frog licking, granola bar chomping fits of outrage over it.
Will You Go Blueberry Gay or Will You Go Carmelite? – A Michigan farmer has been told he may not sell his produce at the Lansing Michigan Farmer’s Market because he refused to host a “wedding” for a pair of female sodomites at his country-orchard reception hall. A pertinent question here is how did the Lansing Gaystapo gubbmint find out that the Sodomites were refused service? Stephen Tennes, the Catholic farmer being persecuted for The Faith here, has filed a federal lawsuit to demand the city reinstate him to the farmer’s market. Witness the diabolical illogic of the city: In a statement, the city of East Lansing said the farmer’s refusal to host a same-sex wedding violated a “long-standing ordinance that protects sexual orientation as well as the Supreme Court’s ruling that grants the right for same-sex couples to be married.” Umm, so, where does it say that Stephen Tennes has to surrender his private property and participate in mortally sinful acts of sodomy and blasphemy against natural law and a commandment of God himself? Pray that the Tennes’ are successful with the law (they won’t be) but more important, that their Faith is justified by the solidarity of the community.
If Clothes Really Do Make The Man Then What Are Men Made Of in Cargo Shorts And Crocs? – Some of you may have noticed my change in sartorial choices over the last 3 years and even more so since we started on YouBoob everyday. To tell the Truth, I actually enjoy getting dappered up for the show everyday and enjoy even more, the stares I get i public because I am am vested with a bow-tie. “What do you think he does for a living!?” they whisper. Gotcha. Now comes G. Bruce Boyer with this magnificent piece of history that gives a chronology to the “era of casual” and how it came about, it is a must read. Boyer’s quest begins thus “How is it that we have gone from wearing suits and ties to the office to wearing T-shirts, baseball caps, and a variety of military garments and ranch hand wardrobes? Everyone who’s ever perused photos of baseball games (or almost any other crowded venue for that matter) in an old Life magazine from the mid-twentieth century finds it remarkable that the majority of men in the crowd are wearing white shirts and ties, and business hats (a category of menswear now extinct).” His conclusion is that a society that has no regard for the dignity of dress, loses regard for the undignified poor and thus charity toward them. Bingo.
The Coming Illegality Of Being Southern – People stood and watched, snapped iPhone pics, went on Facebook Live etc. as the hooligan wrecking crew of NOLA mayor Mitch Landrieu ripped the statue of Robert E Lee from its iconic pedestal in Lee Circle. No one knows where the statue was taken but we do know this: the Social Justice Warriors have succeeded, without firing a shot, in doing what the Union Army couldn’t: bringing the character and culture of the deep south to its final, embarrassing end. Honey Boo Boo & Ricky Bobby have won, Lee, Davis and yes Jefferson have lost. Pat Buchanan asks the pertinent question of all this: what do the SJW’s do for an encore? Identifying family trees that have ties to any antebellum slave owners and publicly stripping them of their reputation and wealth? Forcing their children to wear Confederate flags on their clothing as an indication of their eternal shame like Jews were forced to wear golden Stars of David in Germany? The pathetic failure of the South’s “leaders” in defending the scandalous yet true events of history alongside the good, true and beautiful that was concurrently produced is a throbbing beacon of the collapse of decorum in our society. That collapse ultimately leads to violence and martyrs if it is not checked. So, who will be the first to check it and go Confederate-Carmelite?
Amazon Crushed Mom And Pop, Wally World Is Next – The Frankenstein monster of “capitalism”, amazon.com, has succeeded in crushing nearly every Mom and Pop bookstore in ‘Muricah; every family owned sporting goods retailer, harware store and pretty much anything sold at retail prices that has a wholesale supplier and that’s not enough for the monster’s appetite. Jeff Bezos has informed Wal-Mart and Costco that they are next if they don’t stop their current operations and adopt the centralized amazon-state model. If Bezos succeeds here, and given our current obsessive consumption habits he will, the next step is logical: the Federal Gubbmint must consume amazon and we can say hello to ___________ President’s name + “co” e.g. “TrumpCo”. This is not “capitalism” folks, this is monopoly building and like the coming illegality of being southern, the violent, logical future should give you pause next time you order anything from amazon.
Read My Latest: Madness In Manchester: Let’s Hug, Hope And Not Hate, Muslims Are Awesome – Here’s an excerpt. “What’s that, it’s not your “cup of tea” or “I prefer to remain non-denominational and non-judgemental”. No, you prefer to remain a coward and refuse to pick up those crossed pieces of wood and bear them like the Nazarethan who bore them for you and your sins…coward. It is far easier to choose the side of consensus and social-media wind direction, whatever that may be today; but the problem with that is you will ultimately run out of choices and the “radical Muslim” standing before you isn’t going to give you one. Go ahead, offer a hug, a #standtogether tweet and a 1 year free subscription to Charlie Hebdo and see if Nonameah Eezlam takes you out for fish and chips.”
It’s June 2017 And The Immodesty Is About To Go Nuclear Because It WENT Nuclear – Venerable Bishop Sheen called out ‘Muricah back in the 1960’s while speaking to a group of young Catholics on “Youth and Sex”: “8:15 in the morning, the 6th of August, 1945, when we flew a military plane over this city, when we dropped that atomic bomb on it; that bomb on blotted out boundaries. There was no longer a boundary between the military and the civilian, between the helper and the helped, between the wounded and the nurse and the doctor, between the living and the dead. For even the living who escaped the bomb were already half dead. So we broke down boundaries and limits and from that time on the world has said we want no one limiting me. … You want no restraint, no boundaries, no limitsI have to do what I want to do. Now let’s analyze that for a moment, is that happiness?”
The Tragedy of Post Christian, Philosophia Perennis Devoid Thinking – Read this piece from AmConMag writer Noah Millman to get a closeup view of why Philosophia Perennis is so desperately needed to corral the erroneous thinking Men are sure to engage in when NOT grounded in the eternal quest for True Wisdom i.s. Sapientia. The issue Noah, is not whether “only the Saints” can live by the Magisterial code, it is that by God’s Grace the Saints DID live the Tradition WHILE receiving the Graces needed to do so. You cannot approach Grace as zero sum, mathematics, as in if I do ______ I will receive ______ “Grace credits” but if I do ______I will have deducted ______ Grace Credits. Grace is present in the world and we are given the supply needed at Baptism, the suffering of the Christian Faithful is simply to maintain the state you enter at Baptism, using the Gospels and the Traditional Teaching as MEANS to that END. As Padré Gaetano tells us in Humility of Heart: “And has not a saint abundant reasons, from the thought of his own weakness, to live always in a state of great humility, when he knows that from one hour to another he may lose the grace of God and the kingdom of heaven which he has merited by years of laboriously-acquired virtues? “Unless the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it.”
