Veritas et Sapientia – “Saint Augustine lived in an ostensibly Christianized Roman Empire, but well he knew that earthly political affairs are, finally, trivial compared with confrontation between the earthly City of Man and the heavenly City of God. Although the citizens of these two communities are inextricably mingled during our temporal existence, in eternity their rupture will be absolute and irrevocable. We have less excuse than Augustine’s contemporaries for failing to see this: they lived at a time when the Church was expanding its range and influence as it would continue to do for more than a millennium in Europe and wherever Europeans established colonies. In our time, we are witness to the rapid reversal of this process in the “developed world” in what might be called the de-evangelization of modern civilization.” R.V. Young, Darkness Descends on Gomorrah

Twilight in ‘Murica For ‘Muricanism?
Robert W. Merry won’t be the last nor is he the first to warn of the ‘Murican end times. I’ve talked for years about Professor Laurence Kotlikoff’s 2012 study that calculated the ‘Murican total of unfunded liabilities at $222 TRILLION.
So the true size of our fiscal problem is $222 trillion, not $87 trillion. That’s comprehensive and incorporates the official debt. The official debt in the hands of the public is $11 trillion, so the true problem is 20 times bigger than the official debt.
Merry sees the achilles heel as the MIC and I completely concur, why doesn’t anyone else in or outside Mordor?
More generally, the entire American geopolitical grand strategy is unsustainable. Harvard University’s Stephen M. Walt wrote a provocative piece for Foreign Policy the other day entitled, “American Isn’t as Powerful as It Thinks It Is: The Era of unilateralism is over—and Washington is the last to realize it.”
Merry doesn’t even touch the real smoldering carcass here in ‘Muricah: the moral abominations including sex slavery and the soon normalization of pedophilia the porn obsessed will have brought about but let’s not get too depressed here.
Judicial Tyranny Arrives In Kansas
The Kansas State Supreme Court has discovered a “right to abortion” in its constitution and applied it, making the murder of the soon to be born not regulated by state law. This is an abomination of :natural rights if there is such a thing and how they should be applied. From the ruling.
At the heart of a natural rights philosophy is the principle that individuals should be free to make choices about how to conduct their own lives, or, in other words, to exercise personal autonomy. Few decisions impact our lives more than those about issues that affect one’s physical health, family formation, and family life. We conclude that this right to personal autonomy is firmly embedded within section 1’s natural rights guarantee and its included concepts of liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
The justices then set their sights on the lone dissenter, Justice Stegall.
Consistent with these and other states, today we hold our Kansas Constitution’s drafters’ and ratifiers’ proclamation of natural rights applies to pregnant women. This proclamation protects the right to decide whether to continue a pregnancy. We are struck by the ease with which the dissent ignores the importance of this natural right and the consequences women would face if we did not recognize the founders’ intent to protect it from an overreaching government.
This is an absurdity that has epic ramifications for human life and its sanctity in Kansas. In his essay Do Natural Rights Really Exist. Howard Kainz dismantles the “natural rights” doctrine as being something that is created by man and exists outside of the bounds of Judeo Christian moral teaching.
The Judaeo-Christian support of natural rights is based largely on the belief that humans are created in the image of God. In Genesis 9:5-7, in the aftermath of the great flood, God’s covenant with Noah states this basis rather explicitly: “For your own lifeblood. . .I will demand an accounting: from every animal I will demand it, and from man in regard to his fellow man I will demand an accounting for human life. If anyone sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed: For in the image of God has man been made.” Certainly also the Ten Commandments not only include applications of natural law, but imply certain corresponding rights. The commandment against stealing implies a right to property; honoring parents implies a right of parents to respect and deference; the prohibition of killing implies a right to life; the prohibition of adultery implies the right to faithfulness from one’s spouse; the prohibition of lying implies that there are those who have a right to the truth.
What the Kansas Court has done can only be undone by amending the Kansas Constitution, a process already underway in Louisiana and other states; let us pray to Our Lady that Kansas legislators be so inspired!
The Demons Have Come For The Children & They’re Winning
John Whitehead has a must read essay at The Rutherford Institute, The Essence of Evil: Sex with Children Has Become Big Business in America. I spent over 90 minutes on this topic on yesterday’s Mike Church Show (listen to this episode now, its FREE!) because it may be the most important issue facing American families…ever. Foir 3 years now I’ve been promoting the following slogan.
The demons are ascendent, they’ve come for the children and they won’t take ‘no’ for an answer.”
This is not hyperbole, its not reaction and its certainly not an exaggeration, it is a fact that is demonstrable by the shocking statistics Mr. Whitehead includes in his essay. If you have small children or grandchildren these stats serve as a warning to be on physical alert.
It is estimated that at least 100,000 children—girls and boys—are bought and sold for sex in the U.S. every year, with as many as 300,000 children in danger of being trafficked each year. Some of these children are forcefully abducted, others are runaways, and still others are sold into the system by relatives and acquaintances.
“Human trafficking—the commercial sexual exploitation of American children and women, via the Internet, strip clubs, escort services, or street prostitution—is on its way to becoming one of the worst crimes in the U.S.,” said prosecutor Krishna Patel.
This is an industry that revolves around cheap sex on the fly, with young girls and women who are sold to 50 men each day for $25 apiece, while their handlers make $150,000 to $200,000 per child each year.
“But those are just estimates, Mitter Chur, please!” Okay, here are the hard facts from the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children NCMEC.
NCMEC operates the CyberTipline, a national mechanism for the public and electronic service providers to report instances of suspected child sexual exploitation.
In 2016 the CyberTipline received 8.2 million reports, most of which related to:
Apparent child sexual abuse images.
Online enticement, including “sextortion.”
Child sex trafficking.
Child sexual molestation.
Since its inception, the CyberTipline has received more than 20 million reports.4
The gathering of information for these types of statistics is difficult because there is simply no way to know how many of the children reported missing are engaged in sex slavery and trafficking. In 2017 the FBI popped a ring in the DC area, read about the 84 children rescued here. You can learn what the FBI is doing about this explosion in diabolical crime and report a case of trafficking abuse here. The Washington Post has employed Glen Kessler to write articles that basically state that there’s nothing to see here, citizen, go buy some more porn cream from our employers at amazon and move along. This practice was decried by the Wisconsin Bader Herald last year in an article titled Unseen to the general public, sex trafficking is an issue in Wisconsin – Though government remedies are prevalent, students can recognize simple signs of trafficking and aid in prevention.
Sadly, this practice [sex trafficking] is more prevalent in America than experts previously believed. Over the last 10 years, there have been 22,191 cases of sex trafficking in the U.S. — and those are just the cases that were reported. Specifically pertaining to Wisconsin, sex trafficking statistics are staggering, yet many are in denial or choose to remain ignorant of its damaging effects. [emphasis mine-MC]
There’s much more on this topic from yesterday’s show, listen here.
‘Murican Exceptionalism & Never Ending War Began 20 Years Ago
It was 20 years ago today, Bill Clinton taught the neocons to play! Gil Barndollar comments…
Kosovo gave birth to the idea of the responsibility to protect—“R2P” in international relations shorthand. R2P cast aside the Westphalian state system by declaring that when a government proved unwilling or unable to protect its people from crimes against humanity, it was the duty of other nations to intervene. British Prime Minister Tony Blair declared that Kosovo was “a battle between good and evil; between civilization and barbarity.” Established during America’s decade of unipolarity and hyperpower status, R2P thus implicitly called on America to be a force of intervention for global good.
Looking back now, the brief interval between the end of Clinton’s bombing raids and the start of the 2001 war in Afghanistan, was the last “peace time” any ‘Murican ever enjoyed.
You Are My Sunshine, My Only Sunshine…
The state that has given me a culture and geography to love, hate, live and choose not to live, Louisiana, has just responded to the Cult of Death by telling them we Who Dats will NOT become New Yorkers, reveling in the legal practice of infanticide.
Introduced by Democrat pro-life state Rep. Katrina Jackson, the Love Life Constitutional Amendment (HB 425) would amend the state constitution to say there is no right to an abortion or taxpayer funding for abortions in the state. The bill must pass both chambers of the Republican-dominated legislature by a two-thirds majority and then receive voter approval to be added to the state charter. In a video distributed by Louisiana Right to Life, Jackson stated, “Together with our current state law, we’ll ensure that all unborn babies after Roe v. Wade is overturned.” When she introduced the bill, she said, “By passing this we can rest assured that, together with our state law, we will never become like New York, which recently legalized abortion up to the very moment before birth.”
The state song of Louisiana is You Are My Sunshine, wrotten by former governor Jimmy Davis. It has never been more true than today… I love you Louisiana!
Tell The Crystal Spire Builders To Go Pound Sand
The few surviving, building artisans in the world are rallying to the defense of Our Lady’s shrine/cathedral in Paris and are not going to allow the Modernists who have ruined humanity to the point of extinction to work their alchemy. This piece is about rebuilding the spire as a spire and in honor of its architect Eugene Viollet le Duc.
So why not allow contemporary architects to try their own hand at building a spire on top of the most important house of God in France? First, because Viollet’s spire is a great work of architecture on a world heritage site, and secondly because most contemporary architects couldn’t design Gothic to save their life. Those architects who have tried to design using the Gothic or Classical languages today will humbly admit the brilliance and timelessness of Viollet’s work. If you don’t agree, please name ten Gothic spires, from anywhere and anytime, that are considered more beautiful than Notre Dame’s spire.
That’s a list that’ll have 0.0 marks on it. I am working with some extraordinarily talented artisans to actually piece together a plan to reconstruct not only Notre Dame but provide artisans for the restoration of the rest of the majestic cathedrals dotting the landscape of former Christendom and ‘Muricah, stay tuned!
All Hail Tax Exempt Satan!
It had to happen: The Satanic Temple Says it’s Been Recognized as a Church by the IRS.
“In light of theocratic assaults upon the Separation of Church and State in the legislative efforts to establish a codified place of privilege for one religious viewpoint, we feel that accepting religious tax-exemption — rather than renouncing it in protest — can help us to better assert our claims to equal access and exemption while laying to rest any suspicion that we don’t meet the qualifications of a true religious organization,” said Satanic Temple co-founder Lucien Greaves in a statement. “Satanism is here to stay.” A statement on the temple’s web site said that the organization had recently received notice from the IRS affirming its status.
When Parents Sacrifice Their Kids To Sex Demons
Folks, you just can’t make this stuff up:

The Crowning of Ferdinand and Pete, ‘Murican Lib’s, “First Gay Couple”
You can quote me “the Mother of God, her spouse, Saint Joseph…the Holy Family will not be mocked by the sodomite mayor of South Bend, IN, his ‘husband’, and their ‘family’ candidacy for the Presidency”. I am speaking of Pete Buttegieg, the homosexual mayor of South Bend, the county seat of Saint Joseph County, Indiana. Recall that Notre Dame university is IN South Bend, Indiana; considering this fact do you still think that Monday’s fire of Notre Dame Paris was not an act of divine intervention, consider the rise of Buttigieg, who is always introduced as the mayor of Our Lady’s home/chosen city, South Bend. Anne Hendershott has an excellent recap of mayor Pete’s growing cadre of apostate disciples.
From Frank Bruni’s New York Times op-ed which pronounced Buttigieg “The First Gay President” to Marie Claire magazine which published six fawning articles in the past two weeks on the candidate, on his “husband” Chasten, on his recently-deceased father, and even his dogs, the gay mayor from South Bend has become a star. Pronounced by Marie Claire editor Katherine Igoe as the “cutest couple ever,” we are introduced to Mayor Pete and Chasten’s dog, Truman, who has his own Instagram where he posts regularly about peanut butter and cuddling @firstdogtruman. A real fan, Igoe has published all six of the last breathless articles about Mayor Pete with titles like “Pete Buttigieg Speaks Seven Languages”; “Chasten Glezman, Mayor Pete’s Husband is Super Supportive”; and “Pete Buttigieg’s Husband Chasten Shares an Empowering Coming Out Message.”
Note that Mayor Pete is hailing from the city chosen to be the home of Our Lady, Notre Dame, the Devil is in that detail folks. The history of South Bend is clear: it was discovered by Catholics, populated by Catholics and then became home of its most famous entity, The University of Notre Dame. From U.S. History.org we get this history.
The early history of South Bend, Indiana, bears a decidedly French cast. The French explorer La Salle landed on the banks of the St. Joseph River, at what is now Riverview Cemetery, in December, 1679. Two years later, he met with Native American leaders at the same site and concluded the Miami Treaties with them.
In 1820, the first permanent settler, Pierre Navarre, built a cabin on the north side of the St. Joseph River. Three years later, Alexis Coquillard founded a fur trading post a short distance away and gave the name South Bend to the settlement, in reference to its location at the Indiana bend of the St. Joseph River.
Nearly 20 years later, the Very Reverend Edward Sorin, along with six Catholic brothers, founded South Bend’s most famous institution, the University of Notre Dame. [emphasis mine – MC]
Note that LaSalle also discovered & founded Louisiana, planting a Crucifix at the mouth of the Mississippi and claiming the river and her territory for the Holy King of France, King Louis XIII.
Mexico’s Socialist President Demands Spanish Restoration of Quetzy’lcuot’l, The Human Scarifice Demon, As “Hero”
You just can’t make this stuff up and the demons must be having champagne and caviar parties tonight.
Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has formally requested an apology from both Spanish King Felipe VI and Pope Francis for the Spanish conquest some 500 years ago. The letter cited massacres that took place during the Spanish conquests of the indigenous peoples of Mexico throughout the 16th century. He also referenced the imposition of the Catholic faith as well as the human rights abuses committed by forces acting on behalf of the Spanish crown. “The churches were built above the temples, our patriotic heroes were excommunicated,” he said speaking among the ruins of an ancient Mexican city in a video posted to his social media accounts. “We are going to reconcile but first we ask for forgiveness.”
To their credit, the Spanish have rejected the letter and its characterization of “Mexico’s heroes”, so memorably portrayed in Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto.
The Pronoun Police Have Come For Our Very Own Caroline Farrow
When I first met Caroline Farrow via telephone 3 weeks ago, I knew I had been blessed with a CRUSADER who would join our fight as we have waged it against objective denial of The Truth. The Spectator reports that Caroline…
Here we go again. Another woman is facing a police investigation – and potentially, a jail sentence — because she wrote things online about sex, gender and a person who changed gender.
So far, so familiar, but this tale has a significant feature. The woman is a journalist. A British police force is investigating a journalist over words that she published.
Caroline Farrow, 44, is the subject of an investigation by Surrey Police over tweets she sent referring to the adult child of Susie Green, head of Mermaids, a charity concerned with transgender children.
In the Soviet UK, it is now illegal, under penalty of being fined or imprisoned, to “misgender” someone meaning if a man is standing in front of you with a wig and pumps on but “identifies” as a woman and you call him S’sir” the law is on his side to force you to deny what your eyes, and God’s reality says. “The demons are ascendent, they’ve come for the children and they will not take no for an answer.”
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!
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 April 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?”
