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 -“By fulfilling their civic duties, «guided by a Christian conscience», in conformity with its values, the lay faithful exercise their proper task of infusing the temporal order with Christian values, all the while respecting the nature and rightful autonomy of that order, and cooperating with other citizens according to their particular competence and responsibility. The consequence of this fundamental teaching of the Second Vatican Council is that «the lay faithful are never to relinquish their participation in ‘public life’, that is, in the many different economic, social, legislative, administrative and cultural areas, which are intended to promote organically and institutionally the common good». This would include the promotion and defence of goods such as public order and peace, freedom and equality, respect for human life and for the environment, justice and solidarity.” – Joseph Card. RATZINGER, Prefect, Read The Whole Thing
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:
Trump Has Triumphed Now What Are Good Catholics To Do? – One view of this was given back in 2004, Bishop Sheridan of the the Diocese of Colorado Springs exhorted his flock to “exercise their precious right to vote” but that was a s close to an endorsement of the American political process and system: “Among the many distortions and misrepresentations that prevail in the current debates about the relationship between religion and the social order (politics) is the assertion that faith and politics are to be kept separated. This, apparently, is based upon the American doctrine of the separation of church and state. In fact, the wall that separates church and state is the safeguard against both the establishment of a state religion and the imposition of sectarian religious beliefs and practices, such as particular denominational forms of worship or theological tenets. In no way does the American doctrine of separation of church and state even suggest that the well-formed consciences of religious people should not be brought to bear on their political choices.”
A Conservative’s Guide To A Trump Nomination: The latest from our friend DC McAllister at the Federalist.
Populism is a virus we’ve just recently caught. Cultural Marxism is a cancer that has infiltrated every part of our nation. Pivot to #NeverHillary. “Populism is more dangerous or even just as dangerous at this point as Clinton’s cultural Marxism and radical eftism.”
The Gig is Up,m The News Is Out, The Renegade Who Had It Made Retrieved For A…. – A series of new reports adds the tincture of validity to my contention that ‘Muricah is no longer a “democracy” but is in fact, as I have told readers for years, a corrupt, oppressive oligarchy: “This is the “Duh Report”, says Death and Taxes magazine’s Robyn Pennacchia. Maybe, she writes, Americans should just accept their fate. Perhaps we ought to suck it up, admit we have a classist society and do like England where we have a House of Lords and a House of Commoners,” she writes, “instead of pretending as though we all have some kind of equal opportunity here.”
The Above Shouldn’t Surprise You: It Was Predicted – If you’ve seen my film The Spirit of ’76 then you have seen my re-enactment of George Mason’s speech to the Federal Convention of 1787 that the Constitution would turn then America into ‘Muricah: a Corrupt, oppressive Aristocracy:
And George Mason Would Have Been Olive Garden Next To His Brother Thomson, Read his call to the ramparts of self-government!
The REAL “True Crime” In ‘Muricah: 8.1 Million Dead Babies Since 9/11 – While President/Dear Leader preens about, reveling in the 5th year anniversary of the alleged assassination of Osama bin Laden, the CDC reports that since 9/11, 8.1 MILLION babies have been legally murdered in their mother’s wombs: “According to the CDC in 2012 (last year with reported data), 699,202 legal induced abortions were reported to CDC from 49 reporting areas. The abortion rate for 2012 was 13.2 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years, and the abortion ratio was 210 abortions per 1,000 live births. To repeat…for every five births there is one abortion. 91% of these abortions are done within the first trimester and 99% within the first five months. In the period 2002 – 2011, there were a total of 8.1M abortions reported to the CDC. ” Put another way, folks, if we throw out Sundays and 10 Saturday holidays, abortionists practice their butchery 300 days per year, using 2012 stats, that means 2,330 abortions happen per day. To add a “war on terror” comparison, 2,606 people were killed in the World Trade Centers on 9-11, so in the space of 1.5 days, every week since 9-11, more future American citizens are killed in the heresy of our civil religion of “rights” than perished in act of Muslim Orthodoxy on 9-11.
You Say You Want A Revolution Well You Know ‘Muricans May Want One Too – Patrick J Buchanan spots the revolution spreading across the amber waves of ‘Murican Heresy that I have been talking about the last 3 years. Men are stepping up to plates and taking base-hit-single swings at restoring sanity by laying the groundwork for the founding American Christendom. It may seem off in the distance but the ground is being plowed and the early evidence of it is Donald Trump’s rise. Buchanan: “Whether the establishment likes it or not, and it evidently does not, there is a revolution going on in America. The old order in this capital city is on the way out, America is crossing a great divide, and there is no going back.”
The Conservative Cliche Gets a Makeover Making It a New Cliche – It is difficult to believe that there are still “thinkers” out there who believe that bumper sticker slogans cooked up at cocktail parties in the 70’s in Mordor on the Potomac actually hold the promise of fixing our “economic woes”!? I’m certain Mr Brooks means well but acting as a Christian/Catholic Gentleman, using St Joseph as our model is not revolutionary and if it is what does that say about ‘Muricah as a “Christian nation”: “Conversely, deep down, conservatives tend to be moralists. Conservatism, at its best, is a series of courageous—and, frankly, subversive—moral assertions about what it means to be human. We assert that there is great raw material in every single person, regardless of their circumstances. This is a revolutionary stance! We assert that providing pathways to work and holding people to high moral standards are acts not of condescension but of brotherly love.”
There Will Be No “Draft” For Our Daughters On Papa Sonstray Island But On Long ISland There Will Be – If you think that our Federal Overlords have not crossed the Rubicon of all-war, all-the-time, then explain a REPUBLICAN controlled House Committee passing a bill to add the selective service draft to the latest monstrous sized “Defense” bill!?
Ineligible Ted Cruz Adds “Poacher” To His Resume – Wow, I didn’t realize that “the soul of conservatism”, which Ineligible Ted Cruz supposedly represents, was into cheating, theft and disenfranchising voters like AZ governor Jan Brewer. You Cruz “conservatives” are doing such magnificent things for the Truth these days, march on! What’s next!? The Brinks heist wasn’t a robbery but the result of “a good ground game”?
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.
