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 – “If a Catholic state fails to recognise the Catholic religion as true then that state is putting itself above God and God’s truth. That is a reversal of right order. God is above the state not vice versa. It is not enough to say that all the state need do is recognise the Natural Law. States must also recognise God, truth and the true religion. That is the obligation of all states. Catholic states have a more pressing obligation since they call themselves “Catholic”. Naturally, the realisation of these obligations becomes difficult, or even impossible, the less Catholic a state is. In a non-Catholic state the obligation remains but cannot be realised and circumstances mitigate, as they do in all judgments and laws. Thus Catholics still owe a duty of allegiance to their own state even if it is not Catholic or where the state refuses to recognise the truth of the Catholic religion. They must still “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s”, as our Lord Himself expressly taught2, but that does not absolve them from continuing to work for a fully Catholic society.” – Lt Col. John Bogle
Trumpzilla Roars To Big Apple Victory, Is It Finally Over Now? – Trumpzilla has so convincingly won the New York primary that the competition of Ineligible CruZombies and the hapless governor of Ohio John Kasich couldn’t earn a majority when their votes are added together. The looming primaries in California and Pennsylvania where Trumpzilla has large leads all but eliminate Cruz and Kasich yet the GOP party poobahs have not stepped in to call the obvious electoral TKO the planet is witnessing. As Patrick J Buchanan pointed out yesterday, the 1919 playbook of the World Series is why.
Trumpzilla, It’s Not Just For Breakfast Anymore – Read the un-scientific exit poll conducted by CNN to gain some insight on the demographics involved in Trumpzilla’s landslide. FIFTY PER CENT of Independents went Trump while 64% of Republicans went Trumpzilla. This is the corruptocrats in the GOP’s worst nightmare because they cannot win the Presidency without Independents. The fact that the NY GOP Primary has such a large number of Indies voting highlights the break we are watching with the two party system who’s only, rapacious purpose in life is to remain at the $4 Trillion buffet line called Mordor on the Potomac.
Where Have All The Cowboys Gone? – This is an intriguing question: why are all our heroes more like anti-heroes than actual heroes? As I was reading this piece from James Poulos I mulled over those SHOULD BE but are not-so-famous words from Babington (of course, ‘Murican cult-cha ha s slaughtered the beauty of poetry) about Brave Horatius at the Bridge:
“Then out spoke brave Horatius, the Captain of the Gate:
To every man upon this earth, death cometh soon or late;
And how can man die better than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers, and the temples of his Gods.”
The Trash Has Failed To Set You Free But The Truth on Radio Still Will – The founder of politico.com, Jim VandeHei explains just why the Truth that Veritas Radio Network and the Mike Church Show are marketing is such a hard sell:
Here is how they fell into this lethal trap: They got into the content game to produce news or info they might be proud of, believing they could lure us to read it and maybe even pay for it. They quickly realized it’s expensive to produce quality content and hard to get a lot of people to click on it, much less pay for it. So they deluded themselves that the better play was to go for the biggest audience possible, using stupid web tricks to draw them in. These include misleading but clicky headlines, feel-good lists, sexy photos and exploding watermelons.
MBD: Trumpzilla May Still Be Stopped By CruZombies and Spare The GOP his Nomination – I must confess I really do not understand WHY the GOP writers bullpen is so obsessed with preventing the inevitable nomination of Donald Trump. Michael Brendan Dougherty, while critiquing the Cruz candidacy and Cruz as an unlikable snake oil salesman himself, still holds out that Cruz will save the GOP from Trump!: “[Cruz] may save the conservative movement from a reckoning that a Trump nomination will bring, but he is not much more likely to win the general election or save the Republican Party from its electoral demise.”
On the oral arguments in the DAPA case:
From just yesterday at FPR:
Oh yeah! And this, on an “overlapping series of secessions” in the South, following on the thing last time about St. Louis
Here are a few:
http://dailycaller.com/2016/04/19/pat-buchanan-even-if-trump-wins-the-west-is-doomed/This is pretty shocking
Big, big story:
The Ineligible Ted Cruz’s Playbook: The 1919 World Series – Patrick J Buchanan predicts the deceit that is coming to the GOP Convention in Cleveland this summer. It hasn’t dented the “conservative” enthusiasm of CruZombies that their man is not eligible for the Presidency; that their man promises to use the Constitutional apparition of the “Office of First Lady” to bring hamburgers and french fries back to federally subsidized school lunches (take that James Madison!). And now it doesn’t seem to dent their hopes that the equivalent of “every kid gets a trophy”, even in lopsided losing efforts, will be the modus operandi for Cruz to steal the nomination after losing it: “How? Poaching and pilfering. In state after state, he is getting Cruz loyalists elected as Trump delegates. After casting an obligatory vote for Trump on the first ballot, the turncoats will go over the hill and vote for Cruz on the second ballot. Faithless delegates are preparing to switch to give Ted Cruz a nomination that he could not persuade Republican voters to confer upon him. Like the 1919 World Series, the fix is in.”
Amoris Lætitia Will Not Fix What Ails FL Families, Neither Will Rick Scott – The institutional failure we live among is so staggering in its thorough hijacking of the Traditional Moral Order I struggle to find words to explain it. That the Sex and Women and Gay revolutions are to blame is not worth debating that the revolution in Catechism and liturgy in The Church made all this possible may not be debatable but is also not being discussed. Just last week, Rick Scott vetoed a bill supported by “men’s rights” groups and “family advocates” that would alter the numerical division of parental visitation. I won’t comment on what the shrinks say this will do for the kids but I will lament that the continued belief in the Heresy of Americanism at work here is not encouraging. The citizens of FL involved in the struggle with Scott paint signs and take petitions to their democratic gods in Tallahassee and demand rain to produce a familial bumper crop when it is this system that has produced the drought of marital vocation.
‘Muricah Needs To Get Off It’s “We’re God’s Chosen People”Slogan – FINALLY! An Author ties ‘Merican Exceptionalism and ‘Mericuh’s Civil Religion and ties one to other, then pleads his case for an amicable divorce. John Wilsey’s book is reviewed by Richard Gamble, a [r]epublican friend of the Mike Church Show. Excerpt: “In short: America is not God’s chosen nation; it does not exist in some specially privileged position with God. And whatever God’s sovereign plan is for America in his overall program for human history, no man, no woman, no child can know it because God has not spoken it.”
I Told Ya So: Ron Paul: Federal Elections Are Rigged – Former Congressman and Presidential candidate Ron Paul has told Russia Today what readers of this column already knew: Federal elections are rigged and are only conducted to pacify the Tea Party/Move On masses: ““I see elections as so much of a charade. So much deceit goes on.”
Fat, Drunk And Politically Correct Is No Way To Go Through Life Son – Dean Wormer from Animal House shows up at Ohio State and “grabs the bull by the b**ls” threatening to kick the usual suspect, rudderless, ill-educated, oversexed “…punks off campus”. Bravo Dean Wormer in the person of Ohio State Vice President Jay Kasey. Watch the video and see for yourself. From the transcript: “If you refuse to leave, then you will be charged with a student code of conduct violation,” Kasey said. “If you are here at 5:00 a.m. we will clear the building and you will be arrested. We will give you the opportunity to go to jail for your beliefs.”
If You Can Build Your Own Cars You Can Build Your Own Tanks – Patrick J. Buchanan writes that it’s long beyond time that South Korea and Japan paid for and built their own defenses, leaving the ‘Murican taxpayer off the hook for this corrupt, multi-trillion $$ sop made for 50 years to the Military Industrial Complex. Buchanan: “Let South Korea and Japan build up their forces to deal with the North, and put Beijing on notice: If China will not halt Kim Jong Un’s nuclear weapons program, South Korea and Japan will build their own nuclear deterrents. Half a century ago, Britain and France did.”
DeceptiCONNED by Vincible Ignorance – Vincible Ignorance is a term that describes an apostate who knows what the Truth is yet states that there is nothing that can be True thus denying the entire Deposit of Faith. There is now Vincible Ignorance in ‘Murican politics as is seen by the never-ending disbelief that the American Systaem is irrevocably broken, cannot be repaired or reformed and must be jettisoned to the benefit of Lord knows how many future [r]epublics and federations and at present, 322 millions of souls. It is OVER, folks. Claim or reClaim lands for Christ and the New Christendom and let’s dispense with Trumpism, Clintonism and the heresy of Americanism. Noah Millman, Daniel Larison and Michael Brendan Dougherty are the latest politicos that continue to argue over which method of reform will right the sunken, rusted hulk that is the GOP.
Pervertapalooza I – Now comes Jimmy Buffet saying that he WILL play NC THIS year but he won’t book anything in the future as the Hollywood, Rolling Stone crowd coalesces behind what can only be described as the new pervert-rights movement. It would appear as a satire were this published a mere 10 years ago that entertainers castigated legislators who disciplined other legislators who sided with compulsive masturbators, peeping “Toms” and voyeurs who schemed a sin-soaked public into accepting their sickness as morally acceptable because they allegedly “can’t help the way they were born”. The natural and ancient laws PROTECTED civilization FROM perversions because the natural order demands it. The Kolbe Center, provides guidance on this: “In man’s original state, clothed in the light of glory, Adam and Eve’s bodies and souls existed in perfect harmony with the Divine Will. But after the Fall, their bodies and souls grew disordered, and the passions which were meant to serve the soul became rebellious. Thus, God had to teach man to discipline his mind and his body to maintain right order within himself so that he could live in God’s friendship. The Ten Commandments required God’s people to maintain a high standard of chastity and the Mosaic Law mandated strict punishments for those who violated the sanctity of marriage through fornication, adultery, or sexual perversion. “In man’s original state, clothed in the light of glory, Adam and Eve’s bodies and souls existed in perfect harmony with the Divine Will.

Will Margaritaville Allow Perverts Sporting Pencil Thin Moustaches Into THEIR Ladies Rooms? – Rod Dreher asks the appropriate question of Jimmy Buffet after his pissy-fit for perverts who demand access to little girls rooms in NC and beyond: “Hey Jimmy, I guess you’re going to order your Margaritaville restaurants to implement unisex bathrooms then, or to otherwise make it clear that transgenders can use the bathroom of their choice. Right? If not, why not?”
The Yemeni Trail of Tears, Brought To You By The $4 Trillion Buffet Known As Congress – FINALLY! Senators Rand Paul and Chris Murphy have introduced a bill that would prohibit the future sales of U.S. arms to the war-crime addicts in our “ally” country of Saudi Arabia. As I have previously reported here, the government of ‘Muricah has sold instruments of carnage and infrastructure damage , used on non-combatants, to the “House of Saud”. Perhaps 10-12 Senators will stand with Paul and Murphy but folks, Bomb, Bomb, Bomb, Kill, Kill, Kill has a lot more power than “entangling alliances with none” and any notion of Just War. That ‘Muricah is capable of such diabolical collusion with Mohammedans should shock the Christian sensibilities of the ‘Murican People…oh wait, where might we find THEM!? As reported, here is just a hint of our complicity from Samuel Oakford: “In addition to billions in arms sales, the US has placed a 45-member planning cell inside Saudi Arabia and provides the coalition with daily refueling sorties, intelligence sharing, and logistical assistance. Experts say that without Washington’s support package, Saudi Arabia would have difficulty perpetrating its intervention in Yemen.”
MBD: The GOP Clown Car Attracted Clown Car Drivers – I have talked about this since Ron Paul ran for President 8 years ago: The GOP has NO “conservative” majority, is NOT a “constitutional” party and has hoodwinked Christians into a false belief that they must cast GOP ballots every election in order to “save ‘Muricah” from the Democrats. MBD adds that the GOP has also created, through this process, an excessive cornucopia of candidates. These candidates then turned politicians that are but Rubio like, programmable robots, regurgitating lines memorized at Karl Rove “townhall speaking for dummies” seminars. MBD: “[T]the Republican Party can just keep watching as demagogues and unpredictable debates devour another generation of talent, and their hopes of commanding the ever-more important executive branch.”
U.S. Constitution Gaveled Dead By NJ Judge, Ted Cruz Flees Scene of The Crime – The Constitution Was Pronounced Dead At The Scene of a NJ Courtroom at 07:16 P.M. EST as NJ State Judge Jeff S. Mason pronounced that in order to determine what the Constitution’s Article II, Section 2 “natural born citizen” clause means as a qualification (and a legal term) for President one must consult the Congresses of 1790, 1868, the 14th Amendment and someone named Won Kim Ark for the answer. The actual document’s plain language and the meaning of the term in use PRIOR to ratification do not matter nor does the understanding of the men who “ratified the instrument” as Jefferson insists
Born In Canada Is Plain & Simply Born IN Canada Which Means OF Canada, NOT ‘Muricah – Mario Apuzzo esq., argues persuasively and through the evidence available that the 1790 Congress, the 1868 Congress and the Miracle Amendment cannot MAKE Ted Cruz a natural born citizen. PERIOD. Apuzzo then demonstrates the process under which the clause “natural born citizen” was inserted into the Constitution which reveals that it was inserted specifically to DISqualify those dubious souls who might claim citizenship but were clearly born to foreigners: “Regardless of what Cruz knew or did not know about his Canadian citizenship, Cruz was born in Canada presumably to a U.S. citizen mother, but to a non-U.S. citizen father. Hence, he was not born in the country to parents who were its citizens, which means that he is not nor can he be a citizen through his birth circumstances alone. Rather, he is what Minor called an “alien of foreigner” in need of naturalization. Therefore, he is not nor can he be a natural born citizen.”
I Don’t Know What XHamster Is But I Won’t Be An EX-User Either – The porn merchants at this outfit called XHamster have dealt a crushing blow to the perverts of NC: XHamster.com has blacklisted ip addresses from the Tarheel state as revenge for the now famous Boys use boys rooms “bill” that has drawn the outrage of the pervert promoters Brcue Springsteen and Brian Adams. That’ll show those prudish bigots who think their daughters should be able to pee in private and if not in private, free from the leering eyes of sex predators masquerading as “trans——-“. XHamster said of the ip ban: ““Judging by the stats of what you North Carolinians watch, we feel this punishment is a severe one. We will not standby and pump revenue into a system that promotes this type of garbage. We respect all sexualities and embrace them.” What’s next? Will Lena Dunham wear ankle length dresses on the next episode of HBO’s “Girls” and cross her legs with modesty when give the chance to flah “lady parts” to the school principal? Will Lady GaGa refuse to wear her meat-skirt and breast cones in favor of a Hajib when performing near NC? Will HBO refuse to beam its next X rated TV series into tar-0heel homes and replace it with reruns of Family Ties!? That will really get those bigots up in arms.
DeceptiCONNED – The Colorado GOP had the #NevrTrump fix in from the get-go and now claims they have no security measures for their own Twitter account, what a sham. That the ineligible CRUZ continues his slimy, faux-“conservative” (whatever that term may mean) demagoguery, fully aware that he is not eligible for the Presidency as the U.S. Constitution demands is insulting enough to the intellect. That CruZombies continue to support this, nay demand more of it, shows just how far the “conservative” movement has fallen into the gutter of relativism. So sacred now is the election of “conservatives” that the formality of process, and, processes must be formal, and True legitimacy can be jettisoned. Chesterton reminds us of the danger of relativism: “The fact that [the new rebel] doubts everything really gets in his way when he wants to denounce anything. For all denunciation implies a moral doctrine of some kind; and the modern revolutionist doubts not only the institution he denounces, but the doctrine by which he denounces it.”
The Scandal of Francis’s Irreverence Brought To Life By MBD -Last Friday I lamented Amoris Lætitia as the logical result of the Vatican II revolution or more properly put, devolution of Catholic Orthodoxy. Today, Michael Brendan Dougherty reaches the same conclusion in beautiful written prose. “[T]heir forebears said the same thing about the Vatican II’s document on the liturgy. ‘Oh, it says Latin shall be retained, it promotes Gregorian chant,’ they comforted themselves. As now, the betrayal of the institution was too unthinkable, and they willfully overlooked the footnotes that contained within them a mandate to destroy high altars, tabernacles, altar rails, and institute folk music in a synthetic vernacular liturgy. The Church’s blasé attitude here has a pedagogical effect, teaching people that there is no need to have a holy respect or fear when approaching the altar. Naturally, this attitude has worked its way up the chain to a papal pronouncement.”
DeceptiCONNED II, Feature Presentation: The Ineligibles 2 – Devvy Kidd digs into the latest Ted Cruz is not eligible scandal and informs us of the write-in candidacy of Victor Williams in NJ, which grants him “standing” to pursue the ineligibility of Edward Rafael Cruz who is basically a man without a country as Ted has yet to produce proof of his citizenship and instead relies on unnamed court cases and the Miracle Amendment to make his “living constitution” argument that has the effect of Roe without the grisly aftermath.
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.
