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 – “Let there be everywhere heard the rustling of dancers, the loud, immodest laughter of the theatre; let a succession of the most cruel and the most voluptuous pleasures maintain a perpetual excitement. If such happiness is distasteful to any, let him be branded as a public enemy; and if any attempt to modify or put an end to it let him be silenced, banished, put an end to. Let these be reckoned thetrue gods, who procure for the people this condition of things, and preserve it when once possessed. Let them beworshipped as they wish; let them demand whatever games they please, from or with their own worshippers; only let them secure that such felicity be not imperilled by foe, plague, or disaster of any kind. What sane man would compare a republic such as this, I will not say to the Roman empire, but to the palace of Sardanapalus, the ancient king who was so abandoned to pleasures, that he caused it to be inscribed on his tomb, that now that he was dead, he possessed only those things which he had swallowed and consumed by his appetites while alive? If these men had such a king as this, who, while self-indulgent, should lay no severe restraint on them, they would more enthusiastically consecrate to him a temple and a flamen than the ancient Romans did to Romulus.” – St Augustine, The City of God, Book XXII
Hillary’s Goons Play The Bigot Bowl vs Catholics – If the Media Industrial Complex got a hold of the following leaked email from the Trump campaign, the illogical demagogue, Chris Cuomo would be camped out at Trump Tower, supervising the construction of a guillotine and awaiting the Donald’s arrival to his execution. Witness how I changed the bold words from the original:
Many of the most powerful elements of the liberal movement are all Jews (many converts) from the SC and think tanks to the media and social groups. It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith. They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Hebrew democracy.
That quote is an exchange between Hillary’s careerist goon John Podesta and near careerist femme-goon Jennifer Palmieri, only the bold words originally appeared, thanks to Wikileaks, as conservative, Catholic and Christian, proving that the great American tradition of bigotry practiced towards Catholics is alive and well and few will say anything about it. It’s The Bigot Bowl and Our Lord is the football while Hillary’s diabolical minions play referee. Read my entire take on this here.
You’ll Speak When Spoken To And Not Before, Pervert! – You just cannot make this stuff up folks. The University of Tennessee has opened a full bore, Title IX investigation after censuring a male student for “sexual harassment” on account of an answer he gave in a pop quiz! As far-fetched as this whole affair may sound it really isn’t when you view it through the lens of our political and legal institution’s flight away from Truth and Reality, like the reality that boys are born as boys and girls as girls. The “Professor” who gave Keaton Wahlbon a 0.0 on the quiz because he didn’t know the answer to an identity question so he guessed with the name Sarah Jackson. OK, Mike, so what!? Well apparently there is a Ms. Sarah Jackson who models lingerie and therefore, using her name in vain, is a violation of Title IX sexual harassment laws. When Mr Wahlbon protested that he did not know the immodest Ms. Jackson, the “professor” retorted:
“I have no way of determining your intention. I can only consider the result. The result is that you gave the name of Sarah Jackson, who is a lingerie and nude model. That result meets the Title IX definition of sexual harassment. The grade of zero stands and will not be changed.”
Folks, our journey on the Road to Perdition is now being traveled in the enhanced, silver deLorean driven by Marty McFly in Back to The Future. I’ll repeat: the asteroid cometh.
Why Sunday Night’s Debate Mattered – Inside the Founder’s Pass, Members Only chatroom, Sunday night, Donald Trump had moments in dialogue with Hillary, I told the audience, that people like me have been waiting over 2 decades to hear. FINALLY, someone stood up to the spawn of Sanger and Satan and told her a jail cell would be the place she’d live out her final days. Hillary is such a big and bad bully when she is boasting of her support for killing the most defenseless humans, gestating babies, who can’t fight back. But Donald Trump can. Now W. James Antle III reaches the same conclusion: “Grassroots conservatives have been waiting decades for a Republican leader to stand up on national television and tell that the Clintons exactly what he and the Right think of them. Trump did that, semi-successfully changing the subject from his bawdy talk with Billy Bush to Hillary Clinton’s emails and the women who have accused Bill Clinton of actually committing sexual assault.” Exactly, and I now have hopes that Trumpzilla will roar on behalf of the soon to be born on October 18.
Like Jason & Michael Myers, The Trump Campaign Refuses To Stay Dead – Chris Ferrara will debate Alan Keyes tonight at the Argument of The Month Club over a Catholic’s choice in campaign 2016: Trumpzilla or nothing. In his LIVE blog on Sunday night’s debate Ferrara correctly noted something I brought up yesterday: “I don’t know if Trump read the memo I sent to him by email, but he developed the one theme that was essential to winning this debate and salvaging his prospects for election: he stripped the cloak of respectability from the crooked old hag the media are trying to drag across the finish line of this election, to paraphrase Dinesh D’Souza.” In following this point let me add another: the Media Industrial Complex’s, crocodile hysterics when discussing this can be highlighted by watching this clip from CNN’s Anna Navarro who elevates Trump’s crass, off-camera remarks, to irredeemable mortal sin that disqualifies him from life. I’ve cued the video to the appropriate starting place, make sure you watch Kaylie MacEnany’s retort to Navarro’s hysterics. O’! if only Ms Navarro was as animated to demand the baby-killing butchers at Planned Parenthood be renounced from society; or those promoting male perverts gaining access to teenage girls locker-rooms; or the fashionable rush to embrace all things “gay” like governor John Kasich has done lately. The moral cowards proclaiming themselves as Job’s who are now permanently damaged by a videotape no one knew existed 4 days ago will serve as another “Trump is dead” moment that the Nov. 8 vote will make an anachronism.
Buchanan: The Cut And Run Republican Cowards Should Back Trumpzilla – Patrick J. Buchanan views the latest pronouncement of Donald Trump’s death as exactly what the cowardice “baked in” class would say. Yet the only one who did not give up over the Media Industrial Complex’s videotape coup de grace was precisely the one who is responsible for all this, Trump. Buchanan: “What did Trump accomplish in 18 hours? He rattled Hillary Clinton, firmed up and rallied his base, halted the stampede of the cut-and-run Republicans, and exposed the hypocrisy of liberal and secular celebrants of the ’60s “sexual revolution,” who have suddenly gotten religion where Trump is involved. Trump exposed the fraudulence of the Clintons’ clucking concern for sexually abused women, brought Pence back into camp, turned the tables, and changed the subject from the Trump tapes to the Trump triumph at Washington University. Upshot: the Donald is alive.” Buchanan doesn’t bother with the facts that the Paul Ryan’s and Jason Chaffetz’s of the Congress-world have done less to stop Hillary and expose her manifest, diabolical failings than Trump has with no power other than a microphone. Put that in your holier than thou flight, Paul Ryan.
The Error of ‘Muricah’s Civil Religion Allows “Christian” Defense of Trump – Rod Dreher is wondering how Ralph Reed and Pat Robertson can rally to the defense of Trumzilla after the release of the videotape that is all the MIC rage today. Dreher then concludes that the Christian “foundation…has cracked” and is beyond repair I mean when you can’t count on “religious leaders” to denounce filth then who can you count on!? The question asked assumes that the aforementioned “leaders” are worthy of elevation and are thus holding their titles by some authority that has been bestowed. But that is just simply not the case. Perhaps Dreher and others could do the confused a favor and tell us exactly how these men are in the DIRECT line of Apostolic succession or more importantly, why they are not.
Christopher Columbus, Urban Legend Destroyed – The history of Columbus’s “discovery of the new world” is usually told through the lens that he and his men were marauding gold-diggers who killed the natives they encountered and then plundered the land and melted all their jewelry into gold bars, blah blah blah. The actual history of Columbus’s voyage is one of a 3rd Order Franciscan friar who promised his men indulgences if their journey was a success. All along the way the men were tended to by priests on board and when they were ready to declare defeat and turn back for Spain, Columbus offered the men a compromise based upon a Feast Day on the Catholic calendar. As my friend Brother André Marie pointed out back in 2008: “Fear and uncertainty began to take hold of [the men]. Two months passed and still there was no land to be seen. The crew grew all the more restless and insisted that their captain return back. Still confident, however, Columbus countered their fears with a proposition: If no land were sighted by the Feast of Our Lady of the Pillar , October twelfth, he would reverse their course. This was a persuasive appeal even to these much frightened Iberian sailors, because the Feast commemorated the day on which the Blessed Virgin appeared to Saint James the Greater, Apostle of Spain.”
The Roar Of Trumpzilla Was Heard Last Night, Will The Sheople Follow – On Friday last, an 11 year-old tape was released that featured a foul mouthed, sex boasting Donald Trump. The Media Industrial Complex did what it has been doing, it stormed the ramparts of the “glass ceiling” days and proclaimed that lily-white, virtuous ‘Muricah could not tolerate such filth and thus Trump was not eligible to run our soft-porn crazed empire. Of course the same MIC outlets routinely air and profit from men AND women pursuing the same lustful behavior, and that’s just the commercials. As David Franke points out, none of that really matters and what really matters is not on the ballot. “Above all, we must remember that the election is mostly bread and circuses to distract us from issues that aren’t being discussed—the disposition of over $150 trillion in sovereign state debt, the largest bubble in the history of the world; how our own $20 trillion in debt is exploding at a rate that is unsustainable; the role of the Deep State in making the concept of “democracy” a joke; and how the neocons’ (Hillary included) policy of perpetual war is threatening us not only with national bankruptcy but the risk of a nuclear World War III.” Think about that, both major political parties seem resigned to provoking the Russian Bear into a war that will surely lead to death and destruction on a scale not seen since the horrifying trenches of the Maginot Line.
The “Threat” of Trumpzilla Now Pales The Killing of The Soon To Be Born!? – Since 1973, one political party and tens of thousands of her candidates have viciously promoted and defended the holocaust that is abortion in the United States. Save for the rare conversions away from the cult of death to life – see Bob Casey, Governor of PA – the Dumbocrat Party has promoted and defended this unprecedented taking of innocent human life, and now one its sirens has the audacity to demand the other feckless party “clean up the mess that is Trumpism”! Whatever Trumpism is it is not pro-death and actually claims to be pro-life, for that reason alone, who should be apologizing to who?
The Cult of Death Now Celebrates The End Of The Human Race, With Cakes & Parties – It may have dawned on some in the UK that they have parents and that their parents actually had to sacrifice to bring their petulant carcasses into the world and MAYBE that process has to repeat in order to continue the human race. Enter the “Vasectomy party”, a celebration of men being sterilized and thus foregoing the God ordered duty to “be fruitful and multiply”. Folks you just can’t make this stuff up: “Instead of the traditional baby shower, couples also invite friends to ‘car showers’ where guests help them name their new car. They also play board games like The Price Is Right, where they talk about what they can buy now that they’ve saved money by not having kids. ‘Absolutely brilliant!,’ one Reddit user replied. ‘Made me LOL, especially the wording on the invitation, the clever cake, and the advent calendar! Congratulations, by the way and have a happy childfree life!'” Don’t look now you arrogant toadies but a “childfree life” is also a future free life as in, there won’t be one. This is the crisis the once Christian West faces and the benefactor of this apostasy is none other than the Prince of this world. That asteroid headed our way has now picked up some speed as God shrugs his shoulders upon witnessing the above and says, “if you won’t carry out my commandment and make more of you for me to love, what dod I need you for?”
The Real Reason Hillary Is So Afraid of Putin: He’s REALLY Pro-Life – In last Monday’s Great Debate Robbery perpetrated by Media Industrial Complex hit-man Lester Holt, the twitching, Mattel smiled Hillary waxed ominously about Donald Trump’s willingness to negotiate with Russia’s Vladimir Putin a move non-interventionists and Fatima devotees should welcome. Today we learned WHY #SickHillary is so mortified of Putin: he is ardently pro-life and trying to guide Russia to being so too. From LifeSite News: “Russian President Vladimir Putin has appointed a pro-life activist, mother of six, and wife of a Christian priest as the head of the Russian Commission for the Protection of the Family and Children’s Rights. Matushka Anna Kuznetsova, 34, replaces Pavel Astakhov in the nation’s highest pro-family organization. The mother of four sons and two daughters has her husband Rev. Aleksei Kuznetsov’s full support.” I’ve contemplated renouncing my citizenship and taking orders with the Alpine Redemptorists of Sonstray Island Scotland if Satan’s bride is elected, perhaps Russia is another option!
The Evil That Is The American Government Compels Catholics To Vote – I knew this was coming and it is about time: All Catholics Have a Moral Obligation To Vote Against Hillary Clinton. I have written and talked about this for months, see here and here. Mrs. Clinton must not be the choice for ANY person of Christian faith because of her unwavering devotion to carrying out the diabolical war against Life and the Natural Order begun by Margaret Sanger and now in its zenith. Look around you ands note that this war has been waged with great success to the point that in a mere 20 years, the country of Sweden will not have a measurable, native population because it has contracepted and aborted it.
The Civil Religion That Is ‘Muricah Is Dead & Trump Killed It – The Atlantic’s Yoni Applebaum has an interesting piece about the “end of America’s civil religion” and pegs Donald Trump as the proof that ‘Muricah as a faith is over and not even a “devout Methodist” like Mrs Clinton can rescue it. Yes, you read that right, Hillary is a “devout Methodist” and with all her abortion promoting, Sodomite marrying prowess, cannot save the religion of Me Me Me worshipped in the Lincoln Memorial Temple. Applebaum “There are necessary corollaries to that belief, which long shaped the political debate. That individual success is a means of advancing the general good. That there are limits to what any of us can accomplish on our own. That our actions must serve some higher purpose. And that, individually and collectively, Americans can and must do great things. Hillary Clinton, a devout Methodist, tends not to discuss her Christian faith before general audiences, or to infuse her rhetoric with the language of religion. In that, she follows the path of many recent Democratic nominees.” Applebaum may have used the correct terminology “civil religion” (i.e. CR) and even cited part of it’s opposite, correct ordering, but he does what all CRists do, he elevates “the founding” to perfect, pristine heights that must be restored, but what was done at “the founding” is what has led to today. Orestes Brownson remains the union’s only, publicly accomplished promoter of the real correction. Because few read Brownson’s “The American Republic”, shockuh, right? You should.
Monday Night’s Great Debate Robbery WAS A Civics Lesson & Trumpzilla Won – On Tuesday morning I monologued that the pronouncements of Mrs Clinton’s dominating win were based upon the voting system that scored things on a status quo based political scale e.g. ” ‘Murica must “lead the world, therefore, my plan to bomb ________ and will make that happen”. What Trumpzilla has done is refuse to play that game instead pointing out what most everyone knows: government is crooked and inept and cannot fix itself or what it has damaged. Instead we must pursue a real-world tested, business approach that includes sacking the elite, criminal class that has benefitted from diabolical, created order. Daniel McCarthy has a similar take: “The election is becoming a test of public support for the Washington consensus. And the fact that Trump has come this far is a sign that public support for that consensus—on trade, war, and immigration—has already eroded to a much greater degree than anyone in Washington dares to admit.”
Collusion/Corruption By Numbers – “Debate” moderator Lester Holt, reliably did a great job as the Media Industrial Complexe’s hired gun for the evening. Check the graphic out that shows Holt actually interrupted Trump more than Hillary interrupted him. Of course this is what the MIC does, it moves to protect its interests that are promoted and advanced by the governing class. What you saw was the challenge of attacking the beast of the Big Brother state from the outside as every big brother cliched, illogical argument for the warfare, welfare and industrial state was on display and defended as beyond reproach and a proven boom for all of ‘Murica/Mankind.
The Irony of Hillary’s Questionable Health & Her Career of Abortion Advancement – The following video clip shows Hillary in an uncontrolled twitching fit DURING last night’s “debate”. I will point out again the irony that the state of her health i.e. her quality of life, cannot be lost on the pro-life faithful.
When Muslims Go Orthodox, MORE Muslims Go Orthodox, Wake Up Europe Before You Are Conquered – Leon Hadar asks the question I have been asking and that Christians have been asking since 650 A.D.:can Christians and Muslims exists together in “diversity”. The answer, as Hadar shows by recent history, is that “yes’, for a time, until one of them then 2 then 3 then…. goes orthodox. That’s the lesson of history, once the orthodoxy takes root, you get ISIS then you get the Ottoman Empire. The Ottoman Empire is being rebuilt, larger than it was in its prime and if Europe doesn’t purge their soon to be orthodox populations they are going to be in a world of hurt, then they’ll become Muslims.
Will You Go Trans or Will You Go Carmelite, Episode 7,704 – In our vaunted modern world we allegedly perform many, many actions on behalf of “the kids” and “our future”, after all, even the most existentialist apostate longs for this thing called the future. Never does he pine for it with a gaze fixed on eternity, mind you, his gaze is limited to today’s happiness which will bring tomorrow’s approbation from our elte rulers, awash in unnatural sin. Now comes ABC TV, promoting an 8 year old “transgendered child” and HER parents as some sort of heroes and the TV show as “wonderful”. This is child abuse, now made part of prime-time sit-coms and being endorsed and advanced by adults who will suffer no consequences for their abuse. The celebration of man’s TV triumph over the natural order just nudged that asteroid a bit closer to a collision course with Earth.
It’s October 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 limitsI 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.”
