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. 2017 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 -“There has always been, from the beginning, and will always be, the Church, and sundry heresies either doomed to decay, or, like Mohammedanism, to grow into a separate religion. Of a common Christianity there has never been and never can be a definition, for it has never existed. There is no essential doctrine such that if we can agree upon it we can differ about the rest: as for instance, to accept immortality but deny the Trinity. A man will call himself a Christian though he denies the unity of the Christian Church; he will call himself a Christian though he denies the presence of Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament; he will cheerfully call himself a Christian though he denies the Incarnation. No; the quarrel is between the Church and the anti-Church_the Church of God and anti-God_the Church of Christ and anti-Christ.” – Hillaire Belloc, The Great Heresies, The Modern Phase
THE MIKE CHURCH SHOW IS NOW AVAILABLE TO LISTEN TO LIVE! ON APPLE’S ITUNES!
Mark Zuckerberg Did It On An iPad With A Judgement Pornosphere™ Post – WIRED believes that social media is about to lay waste to Wikipedia and in turn finish wiping out all intelligence on earth. I say that horse, reading, discourse, the Classics, rhetoric etc fled the barn long ago, the trick now is to corral her back and then find a stud to restart the bloodline.
MARK WAHLBERG CONFESSES THE SIN OF “BOOGIE NIGHTS” BUT ENDORSES BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN-READ MIKE’S REPORT!
Bad Idea: let’s Do To The Internet What Roosevelt Did To Radio. Good Idea: Let The States Do It – Matthew Walther suggests that because radio and TV turned out star-spangled awesome and they were regulated by the FCC that the internet could benefit from the same formula but there’s a major flaw in this thinking: the Feds can’t regulate a lunch counter today without a bribe, 5 times the labor needed and then borrowing money to pay for both; besides the obvious lack of people qualified to make said regulations. Now PERHAPS and this is just a thought, tearing down the incorporation doctrine and bringing federalism back with a vengeance to do the job (and to do it for TV and movies too) is the ticket. Imagine that Netflix’s kiddie porn “comedy” Big Mouth is deemed obscene and not allowed to be shown in Louisiana? See the possibilities now?
How She Learned To Stop Worrying And Love Her Baby – A 22 year old woman recounts the financial lessons she learned after “deciding to have a baby”. I may protesteth too much but I would be ecstatic to read about 22 year olds learning to “cooperate with God’s will” and when babies are the result, well that’s just wonderful.
If You’re Sacred Just Say So – That’s not a typo because it is about time folks started piping up and declaring that yes, some things are sacred (not “scared”). John Horvat reminds us that a society that has sacred things moves to protect those things from assault and perversion yet in ‘Muricah, is there anything that remains sacred?
“Nothing is sacred anymore because things have been deprived of their mystery. To those who hate the sacred, the mere existence of mystery affirms an unknowable and superior truth that is not recognized by modern science. That is why modernity has always had a problem with the sacred. The Enlightenment introduced the idea that the sacred, with its aura of mystery, should be replaced by human reason and empirical observation.” [emphasis mine, MC]
All one has to do to see this in action is stand outside of any Catholic Church, “on any given Sunday” morning around noon, and wait for the boom-box endowed cars to tool by, blaring porno-rap so loud it can be heard inside the sound studios at Radio City Music Hall.
Baby Shower Invite: Bring Beer, Cigars And Porn – The term “woman” and its masculine superior “man” are just about to be cleansed from the English culture and then the English language, who knows if they will survive the BBC. So writes Brendan O’Neill at The Spectator echoing what I’ve been talking about on The Mike Church Show regularly for years now.
“So feverish is the obsession with avoiding giving offence to trans people that society is now happy to lie to itself. Frontpage headlines declare, ‘MAN HAS BABY’ and ‘Baby joy of first British man to give birth’. Media outlets inform us that ‘Statistics reveal men have given birth to 54 babies in Australia’ and ‘Pregnant British man gives birth to daughter’. We know all of this is untrue. Don’t we?”
No, they don’t because they are being taught to accept fantasy as reality, God as an option and evil as not so evil.
DeceptiCONNED: It Wasn’t Bush, Or Obama Or Even Trump, It Was Lincoln After All – The one and only Tom Woods takes us on a magical killing tour of the roots of ‘Murican DISorder and of course, the first stop on our tour is Lincoln.
Baby Shower Invite: Bring A Can Of 3 in 1 Oil, Soldering Iron And Very large Thumb Drive – Soon, we’ll move beyond silly facts of God’s created order and into model numbers of our mating choices as robot wive, husbands and of course “children” become all the rage among Millennials.
DeceptiCONNE II: ‘Muricah’s Never-Ending Wars Are Made Possible by “Military Optimism” – It is a reliably safe bet that the United States will still be fighting wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Liberia, Somalia and yes, Niger in 2027, 2037 and 2047, who know maybe even 2137. Why? Because we have convinced ourselves of that military force secures “absolute security” and the continuation of what we call “The American Dream” in perpetuity. Free, as the Apple Computer 1984 says, “from the pests of tradition”. Major Danny Sjursen explains.
“the blame for today’s indecisive wars doesn’t rest with George W. Bush, Barack Obama, or Donald Trump alone. Rather, these quagmires represent symptoms of an entirely American problem. While it is quite satisfying to blame Iraq and Afghanistan on a group of neoconservative, interventionist zealots in the Bush administration, that explanation will not entirely suffice. A combination of three factors has enabled the lengthy, inconclusive, and unnecessary “wars” of the 21st century: optimism about the efficacy of force, our current all-volunteer system of military service, and a fixation on absolute security”
So if “terrorism” exists, explains Sjursen, then so does evil and evil is the opposite of ‘Murica’s “goodness”. You can see this is a mentally infused conflict that in a fallen world, cannot have an end as long as we have rubes who will make the bombs and drop the bombs.
Mutilation Doesn’t Cure Mental Problems: What Two Former Trans Men Want You To Know About All The Lies – What happens when the parents of 5 year olds get their “transitioning” children through the steroids and then into anatomy altering surgeries? Paradise, bliss and the final triumph over God’s creation… JOY, right!? That’s not what story after story after story after clinical research reveals and here is the latest. A pair of men who transitioned to women have “transitioned” back to being men; emotionally scarred and suicidal by their own admission.
What Would Charles Martel Do? – The legend of Charles Martel, the great vanquisher of the Muslims from France gets an update from the POV: what would he do today if called upon to rid France of the Mohammedan hordes on the brink of claiming it for Islam?
NOT A Shockuh: The Demons Have Been Coming For The Children For DECADES In Hollywood – Emma Thomson and other actors/actresses begin pulling the Jenga pillars out from the foundation of Hollywood’s Caligula palaces. Again, why is anyone surprised that the creators of “entertainment” drenched with teenage sex both filmed and implied, were actually practicing what they propagandizing the rest of us to morally acquiesce to!? And worst of all, much of it could have been prevented ’cause Corey Feldman was right!
DeceptiCONNED:The Warfare State Now Requires RETIRED Pilots To Continue Our Dominance of the Planet & Trump Is It’s Muse – Thanks to Expedia, Hotwire & the Travelocity gnome, ‘Muricans’ right “to move about the country” has spawned an airline travel industry that is has expanded to the point where there is now a pilot shortage. And where do most airline pilots come from? The U.S. Air Force. Word has it that Southwest pays a lot better than the Air Force and thus thousands of pilots are completing their commitments and going commercial leaving Uncle Sam’s high flyers in a shortage. And to maintain our flying force and world dominance Trump is sweetening the pot:
Air Force leaders have repeatedly sounded the alarm about the pilot shortfall over the last year, and have taken several steps to try to correct it. The Air Force has upped monthly flight pay and offered massive, unprecedented retention bonuses of up to $455,000 to convince pilots to stay.
So the MIC can continue its $1.2 TRILLION take from the slave-class, the Air Force and the rest of the “global force for good” must remain on a war-time footing in perpetuity.
From The Halls of Montezuma, To The Shores Of Niger Bay – Did you know the United States was at war with Niger? Did you know ‘Muricah’s trrops are conducting what are known as “joint military operations” in Niger? Did you know that ‘Murican soldiers are being KIA in Niger? Did you know we are flying drones over Niger and carrying out assassinations there? Did you know that we haven’t declared war in Niger? Did you know that Niger is not mention in the lame-*ss excuse for a war declaration we use called the AUMF? No, well before you take to the Judgement Pornosphere™ to defend #MAGA and President Trump for calling the mother of a soldier killed in Niger, you should know all those things and be able to answer the questions posed above. This is the MIC and its football stadium chant of USA! USA! in action.
The Demons Are Ascendent, They’ve Come For The Children & They Won’t Take No For An Answer, Part 4,392 – “By their fruits you shall know them”. Our Lord’s warning to be on the vigilant watch against the diabolical is more important than ever with the rise of the diabolical among the children. Look very closely at the photograph of the “drag-queen story time” and you’ll see the demonic in detail; the demonic in abstract is apparent. What is shocking to the senses is what kind of parent would have remained in the “story time” room at Michelle Obama’s library when this pathetic Baphomet copycat entered!? Heck, if this monster showed up at an adult Halloween party, the Graceful part of your soul would tell YOU to run, but that’s been my point all along in this. The demons are now so ubiquitous its become a challenge to determine who ISN’T one the se days.
Pridebook Became Pridebook Through “Click-Bait”, Judgement Porn and FakeNews – Those who have recently given the heave ho to Netflix over its kiddie porn series Big Mouth or its sacrilege Mother Inferior among other titles, might want to consider the same for
PrideFacebook. Pridebook has become the second largest vendor of online advertising as a result this dumbing down of intellect a panem et circensus (bread & circuses) of “news”.
Left to scrounge for the crumbs of an ever-shrinking piece of the advertising revenue pie, online publishers, deprived of paid subscribers, are increasingly forced to compromise their editorial convictions in the dogged pursuit of Internet traffic. Clicks and views are, after all, the commodity most valued in our advertisement-driven attention economy.
The above is also a main reason why the CRUSADE Channel and this site are NOT ad -driven. We are content and subscriber driven. That way we’re not using your browsing time to compete for crumbs of google and Pridebook’s ad delivery service.
Hollywood Kicks Scapegoat Harvey Weinstein To The Curb, Their Own Poster-Boy For What “Big Mouth” Guided Teens Become – When “Hollywood” returns to self-censored filmmaking I’ll buy the “repulsive” reaction to Harvey Weinstein. Kicking him out of their snobatorium for acting upon the lustful impulses their movies & music are drenched with is convenient scapegoating and changes nothing. The same people who serve up never-ending adulation of all things LGBTQ and then for an encore serve up child pornography disguised as “comedy” are “repulsed” by Harvey Weinstein!? Why, because he didn’t have a script of his actions? Where are the stories of charitable women who saw Harvey’s sickness and like Saint Teresa of Avila sought to help him kick his mortally sinful behavior?
The Madness of Saint Woodrow, The Patron Saint Of Muricah’s War-Like People – What would have happened if the United States had taken John Quincy Adams’ directive and never gone abroad “in search of monsters to destroy”? Walter McDougall dives into the question with a history lesson every DeceptiCON should be required to take a test on and pass before going on radio or TV and ginning up yet another undeclared war for “stability”. “Wilson was a High Progressive who, as one of the earliest participants in the then-new discipline of political science, cheered America’s rise to world power because vigorous foreign policy empowered the presidency. He was also a liberal Presbyterian whose modern theology imagined Jesus Christ a social reformer who called followers to build heaven right here on earth.” McDougall still thinks Wilson should have waged the war but with a naval presence instead of armies of Murican boys. Read the 4 choices presented to Wilson (according to the experts) and see which one you’d pick or would there be a fifth option? I’m with option 1 accompanied by a Quincy Adams speech on WHY the U.S. must remain neutral. We know how that turned out….
Marvel Fans To MIC Parasite: “It’s Clobberin’ Time!” – Well lo and behold, maybe I have been too hard on the Comic Cons! After Military Industrial Complex leader Northrop Grumman worked a shameless deal to have their lethal, immoral corporation, sainted into the Marvel Comics universe as an ally of The Avengers, thanks to immediate outrage from fans, the deal was scuttled! Jason C Ditz at the AmConMag has a nice write-up on this and offers: “Comic book readers, it seems, are a bit more savvy than the typical media audience. With superhero storylines increasingly built on moral gray areas and asking tough questions about interventionism, teaming the Avengers with a Northrop Grumman-armed group in a Northrop Grumman-supported and branded publication, clearly wouldn’t wash. Let’s face it: if Northrop Grumman’s characters and equipment would only be for “good guys,” that would not be a good read for anybody.” Good guys would know that war is the last of all options; that a “nation” that spends fortunes a future generation hasn’t even earned yet on military hardware, the implements of death, are not “good” but are instead the force that is “bad” and needs to be brought to heel by a sober people, finally cured from their killing obsessions.
ALL Evidence Still Points That The Devil Made Paddock Do It And My Theory Is Correct – Now we learn that the postulant in Lucifer’s army, Stephen Paddock, shot the Mandalay hotel security guard a full 6 minutes before he began carrying out his penance for the life of wealth and hedonism Lucifer had promised him. The murdered souls were payback, folks. LVMPD Chief Lombardo practically CONFIRMS MY THEORY when he throws his hands up in the air, exasperated, and cannot explain why Paddock wasn’t taken out before the shooting. Hello Chief Lombard, I can explain it: diabolical forces, prevented the physical movement AND the mental imagery known as apports. The Reverend James Schall takes a stab at Paddock’s case and while acknowledging the struggle of Good vs Evil, Schall cannot find the devil and the deals he make, lurking in Paddock’s past.
Lucifer’s Postulant, Stephen Paddock, Cried Out To God For Help – Then there is the revelation that Paddock was being tormented by the demons possessing him, sometimes lying in bed moaning “Oh my God!” among other “mental health symptoms”. Instead of pursuing the diabolical aspect of this case and learning about the lethal, dystopian future the unpossessed are in for, let’s keep arguing over “gun control” and “second amendment rights”. Here’s a clue: when one of Baguul and the boys show up at your house, try rebuking them with a pocket constitution or a framed copy of the original draft of the second amendment. We’re in a war, folks, the demons are ascendant and they’ve come for the kids. Stephen Paddock was a John The Baptist of sorts, paving the way for the coming of anti-christ or other diabolically inspired human haters.
Stephen Haddock Attempted To Live Like A Hugh Hefneresque Playboy, Still Think Porn Doesn’t “Hurt Anyone”? – Read the WaPo’s lengthy bio of Stephen Paddock and you’ll discover a portrait of a jet-setting playboy with a lust for high stakes gambling, world travel and seclusion inside his version of the “Playboy Mansion”, demonstrating the rejection of community the Marxist lives his life by.
Diane McKay lived next door to Paddock and Danley at their Reno home until July, when McKay moved away. Danley wasn’t forthcoming about her life, and Paddock was unfriendly, McKay recalled. She only saw him in the mornings, when he went to the clubhouse to work out. “He was weird. Kept to himself,” said McKay, 79. “It was like living next to nothing. . . . You can at least be grumpy, something. He was just nothing, quiet.” The couple kept their blinds closed, but sometimes Paddock would open the garage door, revealing an enormous safe the size of a refrigerator.
So the practitioner of Marx’s materialistic, there is no God existence is only seen when vanity calls him to the gym. Read the whole story to see how sad a life lived in the “care” of Mammon ultimately wields the same hatred of humanity that has driven the demons since The Fall.
So calling out flag and anthem idolatry now makes one an elitist!?: No. “Elitist” is the hyperbolic belief that ‘Muricah is “special” and our view of how the rest of the world oughtta live must be obeyed or we’ll enforce it with drones, nukes and sanctions; yeah! USA! USA! USA! If only CATHOLICS thought that way about the New Christendom we are duty-bound to work for with pilgrimages, CRUSADES and Adoration-bombs (look it up): Christ-En-Dom!, Christ-En-Dom!, Christ-En-Dom! Your “country” is where you live and the people you love to call countrymen, it is not this totalitarian melange of ruling masters and their “government”. If you want a star-spangled anthem, try the one belonging to your state if you even know what it is. Better yet, try an enthronement anthem for Our Lady of The America’s, it’s called The Salve Regina.
The “Boycott The NFL” Campaign Proves My Maxim: We’re A War-Like People – We’ve made a sport a center stage for fake patriotism and glad-handed orgies of military superiority to whoever on Earth may be watching. Stephen Beale nails the militarization of football and how USA! USA! chanting, rabid fans have lapped it up.
In fact it has not stopped the war liturgy from playing out on the gridiron at all, and yes, given when and how it was mandated for players to honor it, the national anthem has been used a prop in this near-religious convocation. In recent years, soldier parading, flag-waving, and jumbotron shout-outs to warriors have become de rigueur at NFL games.
Existential support of “the military” for its intended purposes has given way to idolatry and religious devotion to it. Scour social media and marvel, nay be saddened by how many ‘Muricans proclaim themselves as “deplorables, prom MAGA and PRO MILITARY”, while simultaneously fretting about the Russian army which is nearly invisible these days. This is another form of our mass hysteria that holds that only our use and glorification of lethal force is justified and the it is the only force justified. As one WWII general put it, “NUTS!”
It’s October 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 limits. I 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.”
