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 –“The common good, we said, is to be contrasted with the individual good, but the two should work together harmoniously. The common good, the good shared by the entire political community, must support and enhance the individual good, and in no way inhibit it. And the individual good of any particular citizen should not be at variance with the common good. And those smaller societies which are included within the embrace of the larger society which is the state, especially the family, should have their proper goods protected and nurtured by the common good. There should be no conflict between the good of the whole and the goods of the parts of the whole.
In recent times we have witnessed a number of governments who have operated under a perversely distorted understanding of the common good. I have in mind those totalitarian regimes which did anything but foster a genuine common good, for, first of all, they certainly were not intending to create a virtuous citizenry, and, second, far from preserving and protecting the individual good, they did everything they could to suppress it.” – D.Q. McInerny
Trumpzilla Is For Losers – MBD opines that the old, bomb, bomb, bomb, spend, spend, spend GOP has been replaced by the new, “everyone else” GOP made up of underachievers and those “forgotten men” – as Mark Kreslins calls them. MBD: “But now, at the moment of that coalition’s strenuous exhaustion, Donald Trump has built a new coalition that draws from everyone else in the Republican fold. And he won. Trump drew in the secular and moderate Northeast Republicans who had been sidelined by the conservatives. He combined those with the populist, nationalist South, particularly unchurched evangelicals. He threw in the downwardly mobile parts of Appalachia as well. The Trump coalition is a mix of Chris Christie and Jeff Sessions, with a dash of coal country thrown in.”
The FIRST Romney Candidacy Was Ill-Advised, Why Would You Try It Again? – Patrick J Buchanan wonders why deluded “conservatives” rally around the 3rd party prospect of a Mitt Romney candidacy. And what precisely would “conservatives” extract from “Mitt for brains” Romney!? It was under Romney that Catholic Charities were told they must arrange adoption for homosexuals, now there are no adoptions arranged by The Church in MA. It was under Romney that RomneyCare, an unqualified disaster today was passed. This is to say nothing of his ill-conceived, unjust American Exceptionalism in the form of incessant bellicosity in foreign wars. Good grief, “conservatism” is in decline but why punch yourself in the gut!?
Left Isn’t Right, And The Sun Doesn’t Rise In The West, Even If Transgendered Activists Say So – Ross Douthat pens the only words of Truth the Times will print this day on what to think about controversies over “transgender” bathroom usage: “Because bigots bully transgender teenagers, liberalism has decided that everyone who differs with transgender activists must be complicit in that bigotry. But we don’t have anywhere near enough data or experience to confirm the activist perspective — and by embracing it as the only alternative to “transphobia,” we risk sweeping a broad range of childhood fantasy and teenage confusion onto a set path of hormonal and surgical transformation. If bigots are for it, we’re against it. It’s a powerful credo. But there’s always a danger that by following it too far, you end up being against reality itself.”
The Military Industrial Complex, It’s What’s For Dinner (and lunch and brunch and…) – This topic has come up so many times on the Mike Church Show I have lost count: WHY do ‘Muricans think THEY are immune to the militarism of the Soviets, Nazis, Imperial Japanese and North Koreans? WHY does Fox News attract millions of viewers by showing goose stepping, military-clad North Koreans as a threat when the fact is that ‘Muricans, sans the discipline of goose stepping, have become more militarized than all those before us? Look in the mirror and consider the lethal error of War, War, War, Bomb, Bomb, Bomb, Kill, Kill, Kill….
The Shoeple Are On The Move, Unfortunately They Are Moving The Wrong Way – The biggest threat to the longevity of the “America” you know today is her baseless devotion to a heretical, religious ideal that is not reconcilable with a pursuit of living the Truth as Our Lord commanded us., I write about this here. The SECOND biggest threat is the conformity of the ‘Murican mind to the will of the majority at any random time. If the majority goes gay, ‘Muricans go gay, if the majority goes 43 year old perverts in little girls bathrooms i.e. tran, ‘Muricans go transgender. THIS is why there must be a singular Authority brought to bear on the acceptable behavior of the ‘Merican shoeple. One of Rod Dreher’s readers gets this.
What Happens When You Mandate 43 Year Old, Male Mental Patients Can Use Little Girls Room? – An 8 year old girl was choked, nearly to death, by a 38 year old mental patient who gained access to the little girls room by order of the Illinois Human Rights Commission. Read my entire post on this tragedy here.
If At First You Don’t Secede, Try Try Again – The Texas Republican Convention comes within a half dozen votes of proposing to the full legislature that a vote should be taken on Texas Independence. I predict that with Obama’s latest edict on school bathroom “policy” the convention will, at the insistence of the populace, take up the resolution and pass it.
Will You Go Trans Or Carmelite? – Rod Dreher writes of the latest Obama-induced gender inspired yet gender denied screed: “It’s happening so fast. But it’s happening. If you believe that these radicals are reasonable in any way, shape, or form, you are a fool. We now see what they will do. It won’t stop with this. And Hillary will bring it even harder.” You can equivocate “this is not the same as —-“; you can try and “rationalize”, you can even cooperate with this, the greatest exertion of sexual adventurism in the history of man and it won’t matter. Like the French of 1792-86, they own the government, the Executive and the Courts. He who defies the “oath die de jure” will be ex-capita hodie; the only question that remains is which of us will defy the ObamaBot and which will go on offensive?
Told Ya So: The GayStapo Assault On Natural Law & The Family Was a Plan Well Executed – Rod Dreher recounts a piece he wrote in 2000 covering a Gay/Lesbian “information conference” that was held in Boston. In the conference, billed as an attempt to provide “safety” to the the then simple LGT crowd (the Q’s hadn’t gone queer and the bi’s were still afraid to publicly boast of Adultery). In Dreher’s account you see that the entire excuse for the conference was to pave the way for what is happening today: There is NO natural law that can stand that hold back the pervert floodgates, they ALL must go and the way to get there is to instruct a generation of children that “gay is OK”.
Trumpzilla Voters Can Become Assets Too – If you concur with me that Donald Trump is going to demolish Slick Hilly in the general election by 48 states to 2, then it might be prudent to make friends with Trumpzilla boosters and stop demonizing them in the Judgement Pornosphere™
Well Gollllleee, Sgt. Carter, Them Perverts DO Go To Transgender Bathrooms! – Who didn’t see this one coming? A 17 year old pervert is on the loose in the Dallas area after snapping smart phone pics of a teenage girl, undressed, in a unisex changing room at Target: “Frisco police are seeking the public’s help identifying a man who recorded a girl in the changing room at a Super Target. Police said the girl was in the women’s changing room at the store at 3201 Preston Road about 7 p.m. Tuesday when she saw a man peering over the wall with a cellphone pointed at her.” Of course this is to be expected to increase which brings the question to my mind: how does Bruce Springsteen, Loretta Lynch and Barack Obama endorse what they have set in motion knowing that THEIR daughters will bear the brunt of the rotten fruit this insanity is guaranteed to continue producing? Easy, THEY have bodyguards, private changing/restrooms and will never have to schlep with the hoi polloi peasantry they “rule over”. A revolution is coming folks, mark my words and get your passports.
King Today, Queen Tomorrow, Why Stop at Silly Bathroom Access, When lgBtq-rstlne Can Force The Planet to Accommodate Them – I have a suggestion for the Obama Admin, Paypal and Bruce Springsteen: Demand that the REST of ‘MUricahs businesses and institutions stop their insensitivity and change their names, here a few proposed changes:
Burger King – Burger Queen
Pappa John’s Pizza – Mamma Joan’s Pizza
Dr Pepper – Nurse Pepper
Slim Jim Snacks – Slim Jane Snacks
Mrs Butterworth’s – Mr. Butterworth’s
The CruZombies Began Eating Their Own Like A Bad Episode of The Walking Ted – To all my friends and readers who have disowned me, the Mike Church radio show and the CRUSADE Channel for our stalwart defense of the Constitution as ratified, Ted Cruz’s ineligibility for the Presidency and then his pride-drenched, Glenn Beck fueled blasphemy that he actually IS a God-Chosen savior of the heresy of America as Civil Religion, I offer the following chart from Gallup, that visually confirms, we weren’t alone:
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.”
In Village Veritas, No One Will Mistake Dominican’s For KKKlan Members – To demonstrate just how far away from the path that Christendom’s Tradition beat for us witness our kids, happy and hooking up at the University of Indiana, mistaking a Dominican Priest, walking the campus while praying the Holy Rosary, for a member of the KKKlan with a whip in hand, seeking minorities to beat into Jim Crowe submission. “So what happened tonight goes like this: a person saw white robes and what looked to them like a weapon, got scared (rightfully so), warned people, warned staff, which in turn caused me to warn my residents because I need to look out for my residents, which in turn made it spread. Then my residents, terrified, come running to me, saying yeah the report must be true, they saw him and couldn‘t believe there was a klansmember with a whip. And I see this picture. It’s a priest. With a rosary.” Use this story as Exhibit A-ZZZ as to why the continent’s moral slide cannot be arrested by laws, elections, ballots or “Making America Great Again” but only by returning to these same poor, misguided yewts, to a Scholastic regimen to BEGIN their education and supporting them with a restoration of The Church Militant as the fount and guard of the moral law.
