Welcome to the New and Better Confederacy and National Anti-sodomy Crusade, preparing the victory of the Blessed Virgin Mary over the pagan Progress idol which presently holds the world in thrall. A Mary who in the early sixteenth century appeared as Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City, where she claimed this Hemisphere uniquely for her very own. The Holy Mother of God being a Heavenly Queen destined to prevail over this Artemis of the New World, symbolized in the statue of a Godless, world-conquering form of liberty, found in New York Harbor: the present-day champion of abominable sodomy, "sexual self-identification" and abortion on demand. This preternatural siren attempting to uproot Christian Faith of any kind the world over, having been installed here cunningly to combat a holy creed watered by the blood of martyrs, of Jesuit missionaries and Catholic Mexicans and Indians whose Catholicism was in those earlier days singularly well-formed, uncompromising and true. While we take further inspiration from another apparition of Our Blessed Lady, one which took place at Fatima in Portugal in 1917, in the very month of the Bolshevik Red October revolution: a cosmic event, attended by stupendous miracles, witnessed by 100,000 souls. This later prodigy announcing Marys resounding answer to Jewish capitalism/communism: the tyrannical spawn of geo-finance and massive scale, the cynical modus operandi of the harbor-idol noted above. Mary at Fatima claiming Russia for the Catholic Church, a nation destined in now-forthcoming years to become genuinely, traditionally Catholic, and to figure conspicuously in a prophetically-predicted deliverance of both Church and world from their present humiliating demise at the hands of World Jewry.

We are dedicated to re-establishing organizational sanity and robust productivity, these necessarily based upon an enabled human person and his needs and aspirations as well as upon the scales and structures that favor his fullest development. Here being offered a pro-life approach par excellence which encourages those dense populations that almost-invariably have the highest per-capita income: with an enabled, densely-interfaced society being that which best achieves prolific innovation, diversified product lines and rich markets: while making uniquely-possible their fullest enjoyment. Here then being a fundamentally-different approach to the entire spectrum of organized life and activity than that self-destructive one being followed today, a plan developed not only in books displayed below, readable free of charge, but also in an intensely-articulated Summary of Ideas, written in a traditional kind of English which is alone suited to the conveying of profound ideas, but which modern linguists would empty of all its fine distinctions, its precious moral and intellectual content, these like a balm to soul and mind. While included too are statements regarding our Crusade not only against institutionalized sodomy but also toward a New and Better Confederacy, as elucidated in several articles below, designed to replace the above-described paganistic thralldom of an open-ended Bush/Obama USA. Our organizationally-distributive Confederacy envisioned to gather to itself all of the states, fleeing in horror and disgust from the sodomy and abortion, totalitarianism and earth-denuding Napoleonic warfare which presently prevails. This site is updated frequently, with all written here submitted finally to the traditions and teaching authority of the Roman Catholic Church, now in outward respects and as predicted in saintly prophesies of centuries having been essentially taken over by the synagogue. The age-old see-sawing struggle against this perfidious infestation having been a continual one, with major inroads already encountered by the Apostles, conducted by a cabal of Epistle-described "Judaizers" whose various subterfuges since those early-Christian times have been the main obstacle to both viable statehood and the preaching of the Holy Gospel. Thus in awaiting Christianity's final glorious triumph I write with a loyal heart but largely from memory, and in unaided consulting of traditional Church documents, as current teaching on both "right" and "left" tends to be faulty, sometimes in the extreme. Yet it is critically important that the reader fully know what I mean by the word Catholic: hence the many criticisms and clarifications, being forced, with great trepidation, to "rush in where angels fear to tread". Apologies that Louis Joliet picture is divided into parts: I haven't the money or web-savvy right now to get it fixed: and yet it may perhaps fittingly signifies the national disunity of today. See any retractions at the very bottom of this page. We are not connected to any other website or organization, whatever the outward similarities might be. Finally, either hackers or our own inexperience with html text have forced us to modify proper punctuation, using italics instead of quotation marks, and several other such deviations. Hopefully we can get this straightened out soon, so please bear with us in the meantime, as what our hosting service accepts with respect to text has apparently changed. Hence in some articles or pages we have largely dispensed with dashes, apostrophes, quotation marks and one or two other punctuations, grammatical tools which are sometimes hideously disfigured otherwise. Thus too in our Summary of Ideas hyperlinks five through thirty-three to date, so many of these entries have become italicized, probably by dint of a host server confusing my old fashioned font with italics: yet I am leaving them thus, since to edit any text on this site, for the time being, is to be condemned to the noted unfortunate substitutions. However, you can copy and past a whole hyperlink here and un-italicize it as a word document. Thus words of alarm about hackers found here and there on the site are probably ill-founded, but we do our best in a mode we are not expert at, in a time when all traditional publishing and other media is more-or-less entirely controlled.

Summary of Ideas: Toward a True Democracy, Rooted in the People.

Noteworthy items of the day.

A few months after launching this website in January of 2003 the Iraq invasion and occupation was launched as well: bringing us overnight an economic and organizational interface based more-or-less exclusively upon Nietzschean-Superman global-remake whims and schemes of Rumsfeld, Chaney, Bush, Rice and the rest of the Anglo/Israeli Aggressive-Warfare-Cartel. Together of course with the intimately-related commercial/industrial agenda of a newly-empowered no-bid, insider-geo-corporate world. By such a baffling, treacherous route, then, has this "Summary of Ideas" grown to be what it is: an entirely-unconventional idea-itinerary meant to explore anything that could possibly throw some light on these anomalies. Comprising a collective threshold over which an unsuspecting citizenry stumbled by-precise-design via the infamous 9/11: that definite "inside job" to serve as the spectacular kick-off for a new radical-capitalist eternal warfare dominion-paradigm, almost identical to that of Adolph Hitler and associates. Engineered to "secure" us all not only in police/military but also in inseparable debt-related chains.

Every subject from the War to health care and other domestic policy matters is treat of here on this site, but you have to look for these subjects among the titles on the hyperlinks: there is no index. While amid the events of the day first entries on this page are sometimes put together rather hastily, often being first reactions to a world of events for decades now progressively slipping out of the self-governing grasp of the common man. "News" today being merely the same old washed-out fare for a week running, comprised of the few significant happenings that our newspeople and media-commentators are permitted to examine. Items whose presentation however fails to hit the bulls-eye of the underlying issues involved: sound-bites skillfully juxta-positioned between all the counselor-couch, health-tip and other irrelevant intrusions that we didn't click the remote in order to hear. But amid this information-no-man's-land - and while thus necessarily "going out on a limb" of perilous conjecture - also commonly discovery a whole host of new ideas. Aided too not only by more excellent sources than cable or network TV, but also by the fact that what these people don't tell us is far more revealing than what they do. Insights thus obtained being what this highly-provisional website is all about. The whole "raw" commentary is then invariably worked over in days following: as you can see by the improved quality - and probity - of entries that follow further on. In respect to which "sifting" operation don't be surprised if an article is removed for a day or even a month: during which time it is probably being intensively reworked, having been found inadequate in some way. In an endeavor which I undertake with assiduity. Also, I sometimes put my newest entry second or third in line, if I consider it of lesser importance than the article at the top. While finally this ongoing "diary" of world and national economic and political phenomena is followed further on by a "summary of ideas" more discursive, not in this reverse-chronological form, to be found in the last thus-named hyperlink below. For more detailed treatment of any theological subjects touched upon here please consult the Summa Theologica of St. Thomas Aquinas - the prime depositary of Western legal, moral, political and organizational thought - which can be found using a search engine online under that name. Finally, you may on occasion find your access to this site to be momentarily blocked, at which times I am probably adding or editing. But just give me a moment, and you should be able to get back on board with no problem.

On this site, the manly values cherished by many modern Muslim and other non-Christian nations are enthusiastically recognized, and their populations reached out to by us, for an alliance against the tide of perversion presently flooding the world from Western music, media and policies. With countries around the globe, from China to the Middle East to Africa, joining many Catholic nations from Ireland to Latin America in virile, resolute repudiation of an array of evils like sodomy, let alone sodomy-�marriage�. While many of these countries reject other shameful perversities as well, including various Western laboratory-procedures which treat men like mice. Thus we are working on including more articles to explore this common ground.

I haven't the resources to form an "exploratory committee" or to gather petitions, only two of a host of devices which remove presidential elections further from popular hands, yet as you will see I feel compelled to put forward my candidacy anyway, come what may. Hence I ask those of you who agree with my position on the issues explored on this front page, or in person-to-person conversations out on the campaign trail, to print up and display wherever possible the Platform which follows on a hyperlink below. It is designed to go on 11" by 17" paper, but can be downsized to 8 1/2 by 11 and still be readable. These small "leaflets" can then be put under windshield-wipers in parking lots, or between screen-door and trim on front porches, as I did as a lad of fourteen for the John F. Kennedy campaign. While either size format can be passed out at the office, at school, on the job, among friends and neighbors. In this way we can get completely around the tightly-controlled election-machines of both major Parties, and get the word out to the People: the real Sovereign of this land.

A New Day is Dawning: Presidential Platform.

September 17, 2018: Protestantism: imposing Old Testament rigidities upon a Holy Ghost Who "works whither He wills".

Most essentially, heresy always involves some gross limitation set upon "the liberty of Holy Mother Church," this freedom being the most exalted treasure of Christendom, against which these gratuitous strictures are so cleverly contrived, denying her the authority to freely apply the teachings of the Savior according to that divine discretion given her so signally by same. In indwellings and visitations of that "Paraclete, Who will call to your minds all things I have taught you", with these words of bequeath coming from the lips of that same Son of God Himself, just before His Ascension. No, instead we Catholics and our heirarchy are subjected to all the gnat-choking notional strictures and limitations that ancient and modern Pharisees can supply, rather than being permitted to enjoy that "liberty of the sons of God" which we so generously inherit from on high. Christ after all having come to "make all things new", to expand the frontiers of divine/human interaction just as the same ineffable Spirit so impetuously does, "working whither He wills", a Paraclete hardly rightly limited to "dead letter" rigidities so scathingly condemned by the Son of God. Thus under inspiration of this same uncontainable Divine Dove does the Church take up its God-given authority--which Protestantism with utmost presumption would place in a mere book, which itself however plainly stands in perpetual need of the same Church's interpretive cipher--and thus authentically armed encourages the pious veneration of holy images, not even stopping short of statuary, as Orthodoxy so typically does. These figures all alike however being grouped by heretics under the odious biblical title of "graven images", as if the same Bible had condemned all such objects in that unqualified way so often utilized by heretics of every stripe, typically-enough eager to cast themselves in thundering, condemnatory shades. While in fact central to the whole issue are words of qualification of the prophetic writers themselves, notably the phrase "do not 'make unto yourselves'", that is to say by your own unwarranted and rebellious authority, as if instituting a religion-all-its-own, those "graven images", thereafter falling down in worship before them, sacrificing your sons and daughters to them, somewhere "on some high place", or in some shady grove. These Canaanite-originating idols having invariably been formed in the figure of some predatory beast, some fowl, or snake, or other bestial thing, before which ancient pagans both Canaanite and Jewish were so abjectly bent in adoration. The Temple having itself however been graced with the castings of Seraphim, hovering over the Holy of Holies: certainly "graven images" in a technical sense but hardly in the sense meant by prophets of old. Alas, and with high significance, no one denies the Temple the liberty to make such "images". But true to its synagogue origins and financial inducements Protestant incredulity scornfully denies the Church herself, founded by Christ, any such Heavenly liberty, in a deceitful program of frustration seconded indeed by Masonic infiltrations into the very Vatican itself. These catastrophic inroads, under whose onus we struggle today, predicted by saints of the millennia, having been gloated over in secret-society documents as early as 1815, invasions preliminary to the Lodge-Hall-directed, annihilating "reform to the bone" which would invade the very Church herself at the anti-council Vatican II. That arch- heretical gathering which was essentially a denial that the Holy Ghost has for two thousand years lived and moved within the Church's cosmic walls, a rogue council which called into question all things specifically and recognizably Catholic from over all these ranging centuries of time. Notably subjecting the most beloved of pious practices to a whithering analysis, under the gavel of dour judges without either holy piety or the fear of that God Whose infinite liberty they so perilously sought to contain. That marvelous spontaneity, that loving but commanding authority, that sweet "odor of salvation", such as the same Paraclete so ceaselessly and impetuously spreads abroad, within the Catholic Church's all- encompassing walls.

September 14, 2018: The huge, ubiquitous, ominous, landscape-covering earth-worms of the borderlands of El Paso, Las Cruces and Mesilla. Are these creatures the tell-tale sign of mass graves now and then discovered along this border, revealing luridly the existence of many more such burial grounds besides? Article developed in following days.

True, this strange manifestation could, with a far stretch of the imagination, signal an unprecedented dumping of animal wastes, on a scale to be found nowhere else on earth. By-products--pork suet, milk products, etc.--however today quite commonly dumped in our foods, under labels like "natural flavors", or "spices", or utilized in fertilizers of every kind. But we tend to think this phenomenon is part of a shame-ridden modern-day replay of the colonial era Atlantic "Triangular Trade", then in rum, slaves and manufactured goods, now in drugs, "legally" stolen vehicles, and human body-parts preserved for and delivered to well-heeled patients around the globe. With the unusable remains discarded in borderland mass graves, burial places of the most hidous kind discovered now and again, of cadavers with organs removed, whether teeth, eyes or internal organs of every kind.

Of course, this would be a massive undertaking--in more ways than one--with components of the "trade"--multiple "doctors", gigantic refrigeration units, numerous modes-of-transport, myriad specialized operatives of every kind. One contender for such a hideous cartage being found in those many Mexico-to- Canada trucking companies, a centerpiece of New Age consolidation of once- sovereign lands, an Atlantis now being set in motion indeed to conquer an entire globe, employing carriers who conceal a cargo of contraband in addition to that which is actually declared. With the enforcement officials involved, no doubt, "looking the other way", since they can scarcely fight a deadly multifaceted syndicate which goes "all the way to the top" in a rotten-to-the-core, mob-and- secret-society-controlled USA. Hardly then should we continue to intone the old saw, as so many in dismissive accents do, that "drug violence" is "safely" limited to areas just across the border in Mexico, for as attested by noted mass graves found here and there along that international divide, of thousands of mutilated cadavers with vital organs removed, as in a hideous movie of some decades ago, there are with little doubt murder-victims of both nationalities involved, both of Mexico and of the USA. What else can it be, then, that feeds these foot-long worms, there on that arid desert of creosote bushes, prickly pear, and mesquite: creatures prior to the past few months never before seen along that international divide, by we crusaders who have been all along its route so many, many times? This teeming variety of creatures which feed exclusively upon things buried in the ground, by common testimony of mankind, and in much-remarked fashion upon human corpses, as recounted for millennia in more realistic varieties of prose, poetry and song. Indeed, all this was confirmed in my own experience with nightcrawlers as a boy--in a fishing-bait business of my own--nocturnal creatures which, armed with a flashlight, I gathered out on my mothers garden plot, as generously replenished with kitchen wastes, buried quite deep in the ground. Worms back then encountered only half or less as large as those monsters noted here, with rough appendages on the bottom that suggested the beginnings of tiny legs. Incipient outgrowths which along the border have developed to easily- recognizable size, like those of caterpillars, on crawling things of a much darker hue, but perfectly identical otherwise. While substantiating this opinion, of apocalyptic and merciless dimensions of our "free enterprise" world, are long lines of tow-bar-brought vehicles, arguably another corner of the noted three-corner- trade, in connection with a drug-pushing bonanza whose "mother lode" is found in precisely this selfsame southwesterly place. A nefarious trade which in every age ultimately strangles every lively or productive enterprize in the nation(s) involved, in the case before us "legal" auto theft with all probability being involved, and as "the worms" suggest some violent fate easily having overtaken many of the former occupants and drivers as well. Most commonly in an innocent-looking "offer of assistance" extended by "mechanics" out on some interstate or other major road, initially pleasant-mannered fellows who are actually gangs of drug- trade-auxiliary thugs, goons who operate in a wider and wider circle across the USA, radiating from that same southerly divide. Guys whom we ourselves have met, when stalled by the side of the road in the same large extended area, more than a dozen times: and sometimes barely escaped with our vehicles still in hand, and still in possession of our lives. (One burly guy, who didn't speak a word of English, asked me some months ago, in Spanish, if I needed help, when stopped on an entry-ramp gravelled spot just west of Sierra Blanca, taking out some few tools. And upon informing him that I had things well-in-hand, he called his boss for "further instructions", as our mint-condition 1976 Chevy C-10 is a prize relentlessly sought by these ever-"resourceful" gangs. We however being cautious enough to leave instantly, tools quickly put away, so as to give him no time for "option number two".) No doubt most of these cars and trucks having initially been "legally" procured under a bonded or "abandoned" title, perhaps too after the owners had "just gone off and left them", after "mechanics" involved "dragged their feet", and in other ways just "got ugly", until the driver and family, in dire straights in the first place, simply left in despair, probably to join throngs in homeless shelters which are themselves an unconscionable milk-cow for today's growing multitude of well-to-do. Wall-Street-traded "enterprises" whose managers and directors make slaves out of permanent shelter inhabitants, confiscating their wages almost to the dime. But just as easily, these unfortunates could have been murdered, their body-parts removed, especially if they were young and healthy: thus accounting both for all the earth-worms and the mass-graves regularly found, now, if our hypothesis be true, obviously multiplying in both number and size. All this likely interwoven fabric of murder, slavery and addiction--you have to meet some of these cold-blooded people, like we have, and it all becomes more certain still--all this being an ugly blot on the national character. While regarding these shelters, often-enough, as at Albuquerque, last we saw, a "Christian ministry" is in charge. With a great show of free-enterprise chuspah providing a "good investment" for the already wealthy rather than helping the desperately in need.

Much like the raven in the poem by Edgar Allen Poe, these worms seem to cry in their own haunting and unearthly way "nevermore", as they undulate up and down the shoulder of interstate 10, as seen only a month ago. Where they have some fifty miles of freeway all-their-own, being a place where you have to exercise care not to crush them under your feet, I myself having easily traversed parts of it twenty times in the past ten years. These giant worms however having never before been seen out on that busy highway prior to the past few months. Their caterpillar-like legs and mammoth length as noted having no doubt developed by glutting themselves on these decomposing human remains, found now-and-again, and acknowledged in media accounts, in these mass graves. These worms now looking frantically for new carrion to run through their exceedingly-ugly maws, having been fed so prodigiously well and multiplied into millions out there on hill and dale, and now so hidously traversing pathway and road, with nowhere else to go: as no doubt the rocky desert soil and prickly vegetation offer no sustenance to appetites involved. While as suggested above one wonders too about all the ownerless vehicles to be found, especially along Interstate 10, on a 300-some-mile stretch all the way from Odessa to Las Cruces, as it begins to approach and finally hugs the international border, a road we often take while out on our Crusade: cars abandoned, some of them late model, there by the side of the road. Was the driver, and his companions or family members, "given a ride" in more ways than one, their youthful and healthy organs removed while yet in a comatose state, and their bodies then deposited in these mass borderland graves? A good way too for a system go-getter-Jewish to its heartless core to be rid of "lazy poor people", "worthless gentiles", Christians in almost every case. People who had proven by their very circumstances to have "not made the grade" of the flag-waving, mercenary "liberty" of our Ayn Rand day and age. So radically different from the America of a mere generation or two ago. While these often-late-model vehicles, once so cleverly separated from their owners, were then easily-enough picked up by the same "ride-givers" or "mechanics", with the police no doubt happy to see them gone or being towed away. The only requirement being that the conveyance be "abandoned" for some short period of time, hence the popular name for the temporary bonded title: with a notice perhaps to be put in a local newspaper to inform the public of the fact. And if the owner were then to somehow "come back", then he would have to pay some fifty dollars a day or so, to reclaim a car "kept in storage" til that day. Here then, as all this suggests, in this now-long-standing form of auto-theft being easily found a lucrative component in a Triangular trade always somehow short of cash to turn over to gangsters and well-heeled Jews in charge, politicos and politically-connected directors at the top of this bi-national heap. With an apparently car-hungry Mexico helping pay the "wages" of drug-lords so notorious and newsworthy in cross-border Juarez and vicinity today, while likewise providing a way for addicts up north to fund their habit in a host of ways, providing auto-related services, towing, mechanics, etc., to the international drug-mob or cartel. While finally an interconnected trade in human organs would be phenomenally lucrative to mob-figures high and low involved, thus readily "greasing"--I loath to use the word--ever-money-hungry gears of this horrible machine. Whose legendary forerunner in China's nineteenth-century Opium Trade, largely run by American Skull-and-Bones affiliated families like the Roosevelts, Delanos, and Bushes, ultimately saw the death of some fifty-five million Chinese in the Taiping Rebellion of the 1850s. That valiant struggle by which the good and noble Chinese sought to break free from the carefully- concerted stranglehold of the international addictive drug trade, with all the implications of geopolitical servitude which it likewise entailed. An ugly travesty whose every vile dimension is still so horribly with us today. As attested by the ominous "nevermore" which haunts the American conscience in these hideous worms, forerunners that they are to a fast approaching, long overdue divine chastisement, a solar incineration already beginning even now. When a hoter- and-hoter sun steadily begins to cook everything that stands, including human flesh, after the manner of a microwave or a solar convection oven, even though the air itself is often quite cool, because of an inseparable planetary "evaporative cooler" effect. Thus allowing people to be dangerously careless, recreating themselves "out in the sun", on bikes or dune buggies or taking a stroll. That biblically predicted cataclysm in which some three quarters of the human race will be burnt alive: both for sins of Sodom and Gomorrah and for close-kin others of this inhuman, hellish, merciless kind.

September 1, 2018: The constant intermediation of angels, saints and holy earthly souls and the rarity of direct divine action among men. The deadly pride that may easily hide under the signature-Evangelical sole requirement of a "personal relationship with Christ". Article developed in following days. Sorry for some mistakes in first attempts at a subject so profound.

The pride which lay at the roots of all heresy is uncovered in glaring colors in this stark divergence between Catholic and Protestant thought, as the constant boast of the latter is of direct divine action in human affairs, and especially in their own personal lives, while Catholics, taking their example from the good Centurion of the Holy Gospel, ceaselessly as it were relieve the good God of the burden of such exceptional divine intervention, only asking Him to employ "one of those under His command" to assist in this life's many crosses and needs. Indeed, we Catholics go a step further down the path of humility than the good and holy Roman soldier, and like the Publican in the Temple, "not daring to raise our eyes up to Heaven", rather humbly importune one of these celestial servants, angels or saints, to come to our aid: they precisely of whom the Centurion himself spoke as "under Jesus command", they who are armed with accoutrements of spiritual battle anologous to those of his own company of one hundred men. Since we and these celestial spirits alike know full well that the divine Commander, being so good, has already conceded to them permission to shower us with compassion, to aid us decisively in our battles with infernal leagues, all of course by virtue of the divine power which rules Heaven and earth, all the while this Heavenly Father Himself looks on lovingly from His ineffable throne. The very love of God being as it were carried to us, interceeded for us, by these holy celestial beings, in vessels of a humble kind. And while there is found an especially direct divine interaction with (genuine) popes, as signified in the several exceptional powers granted to Peter, and a smaller number of such more-direct Third Person interactions with the heirarchy, by a Holy Ghost Who as promised by Christ to the Apostles "will recall to your minds all things that I have taught you", yet by contrast instances of "direct" divine action upon souls of the faithful are much more rare. Divine graces, by definition from God indeed, rather more commonly coming to us as noted above in a kind of relay down the ranks of the angelic choirs: even, if I may use the expression, a sort of Heavenly "bucket brigade" to dowse our passions when perilously enflamed. With more-direct personal experiences or infusions of divine action being found, according to that doctor of mystical theology, St. John of the Cross, chiefly or perhaps even solely in mystical souls who have reached the very last and most sublime stages of the contemplative life. These chosen souls who are for all intents and purposes, if not formally like the Apostles themselves, "confirmed in grace". As among saintly solitaries, anchorites, founders of religious orders, and certain other, again exceedingly rare, chosen souls.

Yet even here, and even in graces granted to popes, there must be conceded to Our Blessed Lady, as so clearly taught already by the time of St. Augustine, her title Mediatrix of All Graces, none excepted. This holding true even if the singular place of Mary in the divine Plan of Salvation, although undoubtedly acknowledged by the early Christian Church, was in a certain sense initially minimized: since such an honor would have found her instantly adored as a goddess, according to St. Louis DeMonfort, Our Lady's late-seventeenth and early-eighteenth-century apostle. Among peoples of those ancient times when the Gospel was first announced, when such notions were rife, the female deity being found everywhere, especially but not exclusively, as in the case of Minerva, around the family home. This readiness to deify the worker of "signs and wonders" being strongly demonstrated on one occasion indeed in treatment accorded to St. Paul, and to he and St. Barnabas, as I remember, on another, having been themselves thus divinely apprehended, after performing healings and other such prodigies. Preparations forthwith being made to sacrifice to them with burnt offerings, there on the spot where they stood: enthusiasms which these first missionaries were able only with great difficulty to allay. The Blessed Virgin nonetheless, and in consonance with her central yet more-tacit motherly role, bearing us all throughout life, according to the noted fifth-century St. Augustine, "in her womb" in a spiritual sense, ministering to us the workings of that Holy Ghost by Whose mystery-bound and ineffable prodigies she likewise cooperated in forming the human person of the God-man Himself, there within her most holy womb. He to be "the first-born of many creatures" thus endowed, we being members of His Mystical Body, and thus in hushed mystery our souls likewise necessarily nurtured in that same august chamber as well. By means of which unspeakable wonder, as the same St. Louis DeMontfort so marvelously explains, "we are not freaks either of nature or of grace". While as if in a garment of grace, "woven in one piece from top to bottom" like the very tunic of Christ, our salvation was purchased for us on that Cross under which Mary stood so immovably and inseparably, with her agonized heart at Fatima depicted as "surrounded with thorns". There on that pivotal spot of human history making "one same sacrifice" with her most holy Son, according to the mid-twentieth-century Belgian mystic and victim-soul, Berthe Petit. A mystery confirmed with a holy redundancy in the Holy-Week-liturgical hymn, the Stabat Mater, whose haunting lyrics were once so belovedly-familiar to every Catholic soul, even the least devout: "through her heart His sorrow sharing, all His bitter anguish bearing, now at length the sword had passed". The first Eve having cooperated with the infernal serpent in our fall-from-grace, Mary, the New Eve, by contrast and in proportional compensation, having wholeheartedly cooperated in our salvation, voluntarily embracing her place as the indispensable channel of grace for we mortals, repairing with Christ in inseparable partnership its premordial catastrophic loss, in her role of the new and spotlessly-innocent Mother of the human race. Again too, God's incessant employment of creaturely intermediaries in his dealings with men, with all creation indeed as well, in this case a drama played out under this new and glorious tree of the Cross, the symbolic tool-of-reclamation of humanity. So that when fully and properly appreciated some place is perforce found for this Mother of Divine Grace even within mystery-bound exchanges between God and the higher mystics, they namely who enjoy or stand on the threshold of that Spiritual Marriage by which their souls are betrothed to God in unbreakable and purely-spiritual bonds: with Mary's role here being at least preliminary or introductory in kind. All the while of course these profound workings of God in souls, in partnership with this New Eve, this Co-Redemptrix, are wrought in us in a cooperative activity of God and a mere creature, such as Mary so humbly confessed herself to be, in that most beautiful of prayers, the Magnificat, first recited on the threshold of St. Elizabeth's home. Indeed with this use of a frail human instrument bringing the greatest possible glory to the all-powerful God: again confirming in general the fitting place of an invariable intermediation or intercession of angels and saints on behalf of creatures, before the throne of God.

Here indeed is a mystery, as the seventeenth-century DeMontfort explains, not conceded to all believers to fully appreciate or correspond-to as children of Mary in the fullest childlike-receptive degree. This singular Marian Apostle, who so ably heralded the latter-day Age of Mary in which we now live, acknowledging indeed that even certain saints did not take this "much easier" and more-direct route to union with God, one conceded only to certain divinely-favored, chosen souls. No doubt the most childlike and simple-hearted being thus endowed. This while these non-Marian saints, as they might be called, not having actually rejected the many marvels of heavenly maternal aid, yet not having been fully conversant of same, have throughout Christian history been destined to suffer "many strange deaths" on a road to God already strewn with rocks for everyone.

Hence too, finally, and according to the same ineffable impetratory, intermediatory method in the salvation of souls, as of God's dealings with created things as a whole, being in His Godhead the terrible and unapproachable Monarch of the universe and all things therein contained, are graces of God most signally imparted through the channel of the Seven Sacraments, those lavers of divine life released unto mankind from Christ's pierced side, just after He had died on the Cross. Salvation there having only a moment before "been consumated", in His own self-immolating words, and the ocean of the divine pity and condescension opened up, to pour out to us in their necessarily-liturgically, ceremonial way, at Holy Mass in particular, and in the rest of the seven Sacraments as well. this laver-of-Redemption as realized in that divine-victim Holocaust of Calvary which was only faintly prefigured in Jewish Temple sacrifices of the Old Law.

Yet ever-proud and perverse heresy continues to be fraught with this notion, captured so well in the words of a once-popular song, "me and Jesus got our own thing going", that the Catholic Church, the obvious chosen vessel of both the Sacraments and the interventions of angels and saints, far from being worthy of such a charge, is rather somehow incurably diseased with personal tyranny. So that in great displays of a sort of cynical arch-prudence the Christian soul is exhorted, today most commonly by highly-vocal throngs of Evangelicals, to abandon the Bark of Peter, to trust in "the Bible only", and his own interpretation thereof, as his only forelorn hope. Such a soul indeed in grave danger of sinking on this Sea of Gallilee of mortal life, as he, like an initial unconfirmed St. Peter before, tries to make his way to the Savior all alone, out upon the tossing waves. Such a fatal misconception seeming indeed to suggest that God "made a mistake" in founding the Church, a vessel so plainly left in the care of morally-frail yet divinely-aided mortal men by the Savior Himself. Such an erroneous view leaving largely sealed, for those thus deluded, this Sacramental sea of divine pity, gushing forth from the Savior's side in a timeless way, with this deluded person likewise catastrophically derailing the train of saintly and angelic interventions in their regard. As well as barring the myriad other ministrations of an admittedly morally-frail clergy: they who, like sometimes-corrupt levites of old, nonetheless have many good and essential things to impart. As Jesus said, to paraphrase from memory: "you must obey the Pharisees, but not imitate them": an exhortation to be applied to any validly-ordained, doctrinally-sound, but morally-unworthy cleric as well. For the good Master most obviously did not leave us such a stripped-down kind of religion, of the pages of a book: a Bible which itself, notably in the New Testament, came from out of the bosom of the Church, and was only compiled and released in canonical form at the dawn of the fifth century. Before which time believers had only the Catholic Church itself for their guide: this living and breathing Body of men, with Christ above at its head, so obviously chosen by God as the vessel of our Redemption, indeed known by the title Catholic already by the end of the first Christian century. Thus making it a gross act of ingratitude to use the Book to attack the Church from whence the former finally, amid first-Christian-era martyrdoms and other onerous tribulations, in full form came. The Bible as a whole likewise requiring the Church's authentic interpretation, as is so fitting to that living, divinely-empowered assembly of which the Savior so constantly and lovingly spoke, notably at the Last Supper, as the legacy He would leave behind to shepherd and nourish us in all ways after his death and Resurrection from the grave. Obviously something which no mere inanimate book, no matter how exalted, can possibly achieve.

September 2, 2018: More on Unam Sanctam as the infallible lodestar of government. Article, as always, developed in following days.

We speak here of the early-fourteenth-century dogmatic pronouncement of Pope Boniface VIII, who was basically a martyr for the Faith under cruel persecutions of Philip the Fair of France, the latter so poor a successor to the holy St. Louis IX of a generation before. Boniface in this forthright and magnificent exposition of Catholic doctrine on the state declaring that "every creature under heaven must be subject to the Roman Pontiff in order to be saved", here of course reiterating the constant immemorial teaching of the Church on matters of jurisdiction, rather than suggesting the Old Catholic heresy of the denial of the Baptism of Desire (the biblical "Spirit that gives testimony"), this error essentially averring that one must be water-baptized a Catholic in order to be saved. Jurisdiction having been the burning issue of those times, not water-baptism, if under the more familiar title of Lay Investiture, while under some form irrupting in every other age as well, not excluding our own. For seen alike in Philip and roughly-contemporary Edwards of England and the Masonic secularist state of today, albeit in outwardly-divergent garb, is a powerful resurgence of the whole ancient pagan idea of the nation as not subject to the law of God but strictly that of man: an erroneous position which in all ages invariably employs those exceedingly-brief words of Our Blessed Lord, "render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's": divine words however scarcely used to announce a revolutionary new doctrine of any kind, as they are so ceaselessly and artfully construed. Here being a heresy brutally-consequential in its practical effects, one after which the ears of men in high places seem to itch incessantly in every age, summarily applying for their own purposes this laconic statement of the Savior, a rejoinder meant by Him only as an adroit tactical maneuver, of which Jesus had perforce to use so many and so various in kind, to circumvent verbal traps incessantly set for him by ever-scheming synagogue audacity. The bait in this case being the issue of taxation. Hence is it sheer impious nonsense to suggest that Jesus meant in this tactically-evasive retort to up-end the entire edifice of Old and New Testament teaching on the state, to make Himself indeed a champion of a radical political liberalism which finds no place for the law of God in public policy or affairs. Such incendiary ideas thus allegedly being divinely announced like a time-bomb for that coming age when they would so violently irrupt, brashly sweeping aside the immemorial divine teaching, to wit, that all things and "creatures" on earth, even as the bull of Boniface so stoutly maintained, come under the authority, the jurisdiction, of God, and in these last ages, these Christian times, that of his Vicar here on earth as well, the Pontiff in Rome.

Here in this issue is plainly involved moral authority, as the good Savior would hardly have expected popes and clerics of the ages to be familiar with enervating details of police procedure or the marching of soldiers in column and line: thus understood being "the things of Caesar", which include methods and tokens of taxation as well. Even these mundane matters however scarcely being conceded a place apart, as if the Church's moral authority had no applicability there. Yet as noted this brief phrase is consistently harkened back to by Philip and all who would torture such passages of Scripture til they are made to say what is desired--exegetes of which today, alas, there are legion, over every topic in sacred pages contained--attempting in this case as noted to trap the good Savior in a verbal ambush, just as had Jews of yore, over the coin with Caesar's image contained. Back then hoping that He would disparage the one or the other, and thereby be guilty of either blasphemy or a rebellious les majeste. And certainly in fine in no wise is there announced in these few words any stark polarities between Caesar and God, since the good of mankind is the aim of both, while the Deity and His law must obviously hold the superior position in any interactions or comparisons between the two, if our Faith is to be conceded any practical impact at all. However this radical duality, of an actual undying enmity between Caesar and God, was stoutly maintained by one well-heeled neo-conservative met with out here on Crusade: he who alleged that until Christ comes back all government "is under the power of Hell". Something over which he seemed little disturbed or disappointed at all.

Alas, this artificial cleavage between God and the state so brutally imposed upon a pope by Philip the Fair would fatefully open the door to a much-later Enlightenment Era goddess of Liberty, in an idea of statecraft as the mere will and whim of man, which finds first beginnings indeed all the way back in the ancient classical paganism of Greece and Rome. States whose citizens especially prized a vaunted liberty apart from that orderly kind which observes the divine will, that primary legislation discried however by these Gentiles only in a natural law at times so obscurely understood, by people unacquainted with the soul-penetrating Revelation of the Synagogue and later of the Christian Faith. The ancient pagan as noted espousing a disorderly freedom much like that which would devolve steadily in our own era, after Philip made his own audacious claims against the authority, the juridiction, of papal Rome. This patent political philosophy of rebellion finally debauching into the sodomy-marriage, the sodomy-"self-identification", the false-flag wars, the treasonous official secrecy, of our own day and time, all to be stoutly justified under "Caesar's" colonial-era fife-and-drum. The liberty of ancient Greece and Rome alike having indeed, remarkably enough, regarded anything like public virtue in a fickle and ambivalent way: indeed with those who in public life had performed heroic and exemplary deeds being readily subject to "the ostricism", expressing the petty jealousy of the people against someone who was so obviously devoted to the law of God stamped on every soul, in a demonstrated devotion to the public good. According to Plutarch, this penalty being effected in a mass plebescite written on shards of broken pottery, hence the Greek word. Some of the greatest men of the times easily having been ruined in this cruel sentence of exile for a space of ten years, just for having been so good, loyal and true. Ah, equality indeed, starkly prefiguring that of our times, to thus cut the most worthy "down to ones own size"! While the unscrupulous waging of war in particular was a stunning example of the ancient political perfidy, this bloody venture being more than anything else a means for conceding to some rapturously swooned-over Caesar or Alcibiades the glories of military adventurism, with motives of just cause being dismissively superceded or pushed aside.

Plainly then being prepared in the time of Philip the Fair was a return to ancient pagan political thinking, to devolve since "The Enlightenment" into allegedly-infallible "self-winding-clock" efficiencies of the cryptic rule of a tiny elite, they who in the USA arrange some treacherous blood-letting among our own citizens and then blame some other nation, inevitably a major financial creditor, in order to "gloriously" march in, with banners of "liberty" wildly flapping in the breeze, with all-absolving "render unto Caesar" logic generously involved. This "will and whim" notion of liberty being likewise seen on our streets, in our schools, in our very homes, in the drug-addiction, sexual perversion, barbaric entertainments, and so on, which have become the leitmotif of our age: ah, liberty indeed! Causing modern nations like the USA to far exceed the ancients in their levels of disorder and wrong, those forebears who did at least retain some notion of right and wrong, their fault being more a matter of a lack of constancy than a total void like ours in these crucial regards.

Hence with good reason advocated here on this site and in this Crusade is a steadfast return to older Christian political forms, beneficiaries that they were of the genuine teachings of the Savior as painstakingly developed over two millennia, in public forums and monastic scriptoria alike, and laboriously applied to public and practical matters of every kind. These traditional political units, termed "organic" in many political textbooks, having been sedulously negotiated in charters, with rights and privileges for noble and commoner alike, having often originated "in the time of the Confessor" (the good king Edward of that hallowed name and eleventh-century reign), and been considered gravely binding on all concerned. Thus too is avoided the fatal propensity of modern "liberty-loving" political systems to become debating societies among the leaders themselves, with the people having no realistic input at all: an anomaly which devolves with great ease into the code-of-secrecy which is the leitmotif of the modern state. A proverbial "rug" under which so many ugly things are "hid". Such a vaunted liberty treating the people like an unthinking herd, worthy only of choosing between "leaders" one way or another equally bad, while condescendingly averring that "the people would never understand", were public issues to be openly and publicly, with citizen participation, resolved. The innate comprehensive wisdom of the public forum, especially when motivated by Christian principles, being so arrogantly denied in these arch-condescending sentiments. The state according to the constant teaching of the Church being meant by contrast to be entirely open and above-board, publicly arbitrated, to benefit by the collective wisdom, so hard won by human experience and pain, of the body politic, and hardly the arena of chaos and immorality spawned by blood-oath-secretive, government-controlling leagues of today. The polity rather divinely designed to be an agape feast of brotherhood, of mutual aid, respect and regard, and especially solicitous in the careful avoidance of those mere theatrical appearances which so much rule nations of today. The state the harbor of uplifting laws and cultural forms, and locally, where most of the governing in such good nations actually takes place, fraught with pious threshold greetings like the once-invariable "praised be Jesus and Mary" of well-remembered times not that long ago. While furthermore the state, readily drawing earthward the abundant blessings of God, when formed in such liniments and according to the unanimous teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas and other holy doctors before, is meant likewise to use the rod of correction upon the morally errant: not at all in order to be tyrannical, but rather for the reclamation of both society and of their own individual character, and the saving of their souls. This being indeed the paramount role and blessing of the good state, that it cares for its citizens not only in temporal things but in those of a noble and elevated kind so fit for humankind, whose accession ends in the enjoyment of eternal life. Championing a liberty-of-soul of the most exalted kind, rather than that adolescent-minded, Enlightenment Era fife-and-drum nonsense so demonstrably fit only for herds of swine. Such a good state showing itself worthy-of and proportional-to the whole range of needs of frail and mortal/immortal man, in every dimension of his being, in well-informed political tools divinely precisely molded to contours of our human nature by a good God. The state thus being an entirely new creature under the inspiration of the Catholic Faith, exercising in leader and citizen alike that "fatherhood, all of which comes from God", that marvelous public boon which is both severe to the wayward and generous to the common man. The public realm scarcely being the "rough and tumble" of modern democracy's conflicting interests, said somehow to resolve themselves under a U.S. Constitution "divinely inspired". Government being designed by a good God as no speech-making society where mountebanks can put on perfumed airs, as in ancient times, but rather a forge upon which are laboriously hammered-out vital practical issues of the day, whose abiding rule is love or charity, in the concatenation of efforts of natural leaders and ordinary men, under Church auspices. In this way arriving at a publicly-arbitrated, comprehensive common good in all regards.

August 25, 2018: Above-board, divinely-guided personal leadership versus lodge-hall/group secrecy: the one from Heaven, the other from Hell.

Once you grasp this cipher, then everything becomes quite plain, for God does not guide groups but only those individuals of which they are composed: the group itself being incapable of receiving grace, being essentially only an idea. But once this falsehood of group leadership becomes the modus operandi of a nation, with apotheosized, elite-group-inspired "constitutions" replacing the law of God as determining principle for civil and criminal law and diplomacy, then chaos is assured, and the fiend will have his day, taking possession of legislatures and judiciaries which have become no better than debating societies, like "ships without a rudder", often-enough "choking on a gnat but swallowing a camel", this malevolent infernal overseer packing them with the secondary infection of secret societies who conjured or quietly coerced the constitution involved, and who by way of internal reverse-looped processes must be turned to in order to "get things done". These in turn swearing blood oaths, inevitably concocting satanic rituals, as these plenipotentiary groups invariably, by slippery pathways of hubris and uninhibited power-greed, fall under more-or-less formal infernal sway. This whole concept of group determinism being the standard way that satan himself "gets things done", animating these political cabals with his own deadly and murderous personality, much indeed like the suicidal biblical "herd of swine".

True leadership among mortal men on the other hand is rather a balancing between admittedly frail personal actors, whose "strength is made perfect in infirmity": this being is the irreplaceable human personal and political method, in a sharing-out indeed, but always as contained within a down-to-earth, bracing sense of reality, a satisfying and sustaining cultural envelope inseparable from genuine human interaction, rather than being "handed down" in ringing dictums from "thus spake Zarathustra" dark regions of lodge-hall-ceremonial life. With even the architecture of their meeting halls suggesting sinister and ominous things. This self-important cult-of-secrecy, by which the input of the common man is with set purpose despised, bearing bitter fruit, by which indeed such a tree is known, in today's perverse court-rulings and legislation, the native-blood-sacrificing false flag wars, always for a "higher cause", whose "necessity", again, is held to be incommunicable to the common citizen at all. All this plainly destructive maelstrom taking the place of the traditional, divinely-guided mutual wisdom the commonweal, the laborious hammering-out of thorny issues in bilateral charters that generously answered to interests of noble and commoner alike, that were richly rewarding in a marvelously comprehensive way, with each particular party, whether great or small, being happily interwoven into a public tapestry of a magnificent kind. In an orchestration whose productive and salubrious harmony sustains life and happiness on earth, while gravitating toward an eternity of joy with God in a Heavenly home.

Hence we must not despise the political wisdom of Christian ancestors of old, but rather reverently put it back in place, learning once again to arbitrate political issues in a neighborly, brotherly "give and take" which is good for the soul, which brings joy, peace and harmony. Rather than as at present trembling under apprehensions of "what's coming next?", as dictums of Trumpesque or Hillarian false deities utter thundering directives one after the other, and the infernal and life-sacrificing consequences are said to be "the price of democracy", or "the march of freedom", or "of progress", and so on and on. Ah, how such tiresome, theatrical slogans kill the spirit, deafen the ear! As the futuristic deity of Judaism, its false "messiah", whom Christ identified as Satan himself, steadily rears its ugly, tradition-despising head. Required rather being a loving and devoted return to that "fatherhood, all of which comes from God", in that paternal if socially-shared-out wisdom which for one thing is the sole immovable guarantor against that sexual perversion of today. That social disease whose chief spawning ground is in emotion-laden intrigues of maternally-dominated homes. That abomination, soon, as at Sodom and Gomorrah, to bring the incineration, this time not of a few towns but of three-quarters of the human race. This fiendish travesty ramroded by satanically-inspired courts, motivating a contempt for fathers of families and nations in particular, constituting that quintessentially-infernal rebellion which is the fountainhead of sodomy, abortion, and all other choas-breeding, anti-life things becoming so repugnantly familiar to us today.

August 17 2018: The wisdom of modern academia in a nutshell: There is no such thing as evil, only "backwardness", "ignorance", or a host of mental conditions. The only cure for which is allegedly a scholastically-directed, herd-enforced, "self-identifying" self-indulgence.

Indeed and as stated before on this site, the only evil person under this worldview is anyone who believes there is such a thing as evil. Such a person said to be hopelessly "paranoid"--ah, their favorite witch-hunting, self-justifying word--to have a "negative", "judgmental" outlook on life, and thus to be the closest thing to a coward and a hypocrite that such an indulgent system will admit. Having fatally and shamefacedly despaired of blank-faced-animalistic answers of Sigmund Freud, the very messiah of modern synagogue-directed thought. He who supposedly rescued us all from the "neuroses" of Christian piety, the "old wives tales" of angels and saints. The weird formularies of the late-nineteenth/early-twentieth century guru, the Big Kabula of the modern mind, said to be the only hope in this "heroic" escape from Menninger's ever-Christian, notably-Catholic "man against himself". Although as a truly-cowardly concession to ever-towering Freudianism, the Evangelicals, and even some old-line denominations, of today have espoused an especially radical version of the signature-Protestant "faith without works": such enthusiasts able as it were to "have their cake and eat it, too", as this latter-day practical apostasy has no particular problem with sins of the gravest, even indeed the most unnatural, and thus in a very real sense recognize no evil or evil persons--such an idea to them being the rankest of heresies--thus with utmost facility finding a comfortable home among modern psychiatry's man psuedo-principles of every shape and size.

As much as all these breathless proclamations are said to aim at the release at last of "the self" from all its fabled fetters of yore, as the above might suggest to the perceptive mind, these people turn on a dime and insist with equal ardor that we must flee from our own interior life above all things, as it is said by all these budding sages to contain only terrible ghosts, frightful illusions, impulses toward fanaticism, toward "paranoia", megalomania, and so on. The touchstone of this personal individual release being with highest irony sought in close company with the herd, presumably also thus all-absolving-with, and incognito-about sin, many its most restive elements no doubt "self-identifying", grunting and snorting together against anything that cannot be thus generically and without distinction shared, ready indeed to plunge over the nearest cliff at the least faint sound of hoof scraping rocky soil. Being entirely engrossed in group-shared eating, drinking, "sex" of every conceivable kind, and so on and on. Things which real herds, of course, might partake, but only moderately and in accord with their natural and indeed virtuous use. Hence plainly enough according to slippery slopes of this twisted satanic logical the only evil is to imagine any existence apart from this stamping and lowing crowd, in that "peace which the world cannnot give" of the biblical "inner chamber" of the soul, the only "vice" to master oneself--the very wedding garment of admittance to nuptials therein celebrated--to become an independent force to be reckoned with, to concern oneself with truth or virtue. Such pursuits being considered part and parcel of that old way of thinking which modern scholarship before and post-modern scholarship more recently have alike so "heroically" exerted themselves to banish from among "peoplekind". With even the old expression mankind regarded as tainted with tradition beyond any repair. Ah, yes, a weakling under management of the bellowing herd: such is the much-vaunted hero of our times!

Of course, part-and-parcel of the above, allegedly a self-evident truth, is the categorical that once you have sinned, you are "in denial" if you imagine that you can ever lead an innocent life again. Hence too, in a belief system as fervent, or rather fervid, as any ever before seen, any misgivings that may crop up along the way about the terrible unknown, the plunging void, into which this thought-consuming process-philosophy is leading: any such rather sensible demur is ranked as an apostasy of the blackest kind, with such turncoat "denials" being only a cowardly retreat from surrender-demanding outlines of this new "wisdom" which sweeps all before itself. Again, as noted above, owning that any departure, or the least variance, from this modern-day self-indulgent, Civilization-disolving foppery, first encountered a century and quarter ago in the frank diabolism of Sigmund Freud, amounts to evil of the blackest kind. While highly germane to such a program of deceit was my own dream or vision of teenage or early-twenties years, in which I found myself on the brink of a vaporous sea, with an infinitude of others closely crowded against me on either side, in a long circular line stretching to the barely-discernible banks of the opposite shore. These reprobated souls demanding, with pushes and tugs, that I too plunge with them into this smoking void, at whose bottom fire rather than water was no doubt found.

Where is the celebrated "liberty" in all of this? It is the unfettered ability to accept without question--here being the only "holiness" permitted or involved--all that this sodomite-creating, space-capsule philosophy demands. It is to be found in an unmitigated rejection of any personally-authored thought at all, such as our "backward" forefathers so treasured, and often gave their lives to preserve or restore. All "justice" and "right" being handed down to us in thundering gavel-poundings by elfish cloaked figures ranged above, in rarified academic and Federal-judicial regions, where all things for peoplekind are "rightly" determined here below. The input of individual man being ranked by these new deities as fatally destructive, at best a useless wandering away from this gloriously-demanding, collectivist/preternatural path.

No, my friends: I will take my medieval "stations of the Cross", my vigils in company with Christ my Savior, my beloved ever-accommodating, individuality-nourishing, character-developing comaraderie of parish and neighborhood life of Christian men of yore. And I will "draw a line in the sand", and do what I can to see that these noble and Godly things are solidly, unshakeably, and with due legal formality restored to their former pride-of-place.

July 18, 2918: The modern-day Jew and Judaizer, a chilling replay of Apostolic times. These commentaries on the Synagogue only repeat the warnings of pontiffs of anno domino time, and represent no "hatred" at all: except against that wickedness which is ever the Jewish calling card.

The loss of the Covenant by the Jews was the result of their thoroughgoing and consistent rejection of God's law and will, notably in their murdering of all the prophets, and finally of the very Son of God Himself. While these "white sepulchres" have nonetheless retained for millennia a striking appearance of righeousness, this by way of a complete immersion in externals, a hypocrisy which, like reprobation itself, becomes stouter and more self-arrogating over time. A Synagogue which likewise exhibits a tremendous facility at such belabored but order-overthrowing disciplines as linguistics, that modern mummery which given time would change the meaning of every word under the sun, a shadowy pursuit suited to perpetually-fluid faces of Jewish lore, in which word and face alike bear no relation to truth at all, but are mere sounding boards for theatrical effects desired. As honor means nothing to the standard Jew, but only the perpetual advantage, to be sought above all else, for which all human means or instrumentalities, all philosophy, intellectuality or art, are only so many blinds, baffles or ploys. While furthermore the Jew enlists to himself a host of biblical "Judaizers", gentiles who eagerly make themselves useful to this nefarious Jewish cause, auxiliaries in some "urgently needed" futuristic change, some "self-identifying" academic perversity, some space-launch, some "cutting edge" nano-industrial platform, these goyim being comfortably installed functionaries put in place through Jewish institutional/psychological and pecuniary power. By means of which alliance the honest and above-board has been totally banished from human affairs, with trickery and duplicity fatally mistaken for intelligence at every turn. Hence as suggested above when in company with one of these Jews or Judaizers--to be found everywhere that Jewish influence is sought, but especially in the USA--one finds oneself back in a beard-stroking first century Jerusalem very quickly, as if no time had passed at all, no matter how overwhelmingly-progressive the whole impressive imposture may be. Just before ruin closes over your country, your world, like the lid to a coffin in a funeral home.

It takes the grace of God to fight these perpetually scheming and manipulating people, coupled with a childlike simplicity such as Christ Himself requires of us if we would save our souls. For if we allow ourselves to be pulled into those subtleties in which Jews and their associates are so well versed, or trade with them that abusive railery which is their stock-in-trade, we will be vanquished miserably every time. While furthermore to secure the state against inroads of these eternal biblically-identified "enemies of mankind" it must be founded immovably on Catholic custom and law: not at all to force Catholicism on anyone but because every other sort of Christianity is too weak, too fluid, too generic and impersonal to stand up to the incessant Jewish intrigue, which carefully examines every person, every inch of the city walls, to look for a breach it might widen disastrously. For purposes of which vigilance government must return to older forms, with a nobility and a monarchy which form a sturdy network of natural personal leadership, of canny strength, with rights, privileges and duties of both prince and commoner spelled out in carefully negotiated charters, under Church guidance and auspices, as in medieval times: when self-government was no theatrical claim, but a living, breathing reality in which persons at all levels had an intimate share. Hardly being deleriously happy to be ruled by secret societies from on high, to be experimented upon, tto be led into false-flag wars which are only ritual human sacrifice under a thin disguise.Similarly, and as all this suggests, the public wellbeing depends upon a thorough familiarity of public official and private citizen alike with the latest species of Jewish skullduggery, in a vigilance, a ferreting out which term-serving senates and allegedly self-adjusting and self-monitoring republican forms of government are entirely incapable of. These being in practice defenseless against these highly-personal leagues such as now rain havoc on the USA, combines epitomized in those scarcely-democratic Federal courts whose judges and justices rule like pagan deities, or cloaked sorcerers, imposing hideous perversities without any limit or restraint. Modern government, much-made-over though it be, being an inert kind of polity, an alleged "bastion of freedom" easily circumvented, like that notorious Maginot Line of French set-in-concrete artillery emplacements, constructed in the late nineteenth century, over-confidently trained toward Germany, tactically-immobile fortresses sidestepped by the Germans with little difficulty at all. Our war being against those traitors who respect no set-piece-constitutional line-of-defenses, who perpetually plot and deceive, who are entirely lacking in integrity or goodwill, and are therefore incapable of operating democratically, all the while they put inescapably in charge. Biblical enemies of mankind and by definition of the state as well, who must be rigidly denied any participation therein: just as Al Capone would have been denied any input into storied 1930s anti-mob workings of the FBI. These implacable adversaries who therefore require the tireless vigilance of individual authorities exhaustively acquainted with their every latest move or longstanding strategy. Leaders who must not be hamstrung by arcane political theories, all-determining congresses, or judges perversely claiming the very moral authority of God, the good state requiring noblemen who are rather held in reasonable check by healthy, time-tried countervailing tensions, like the bodily muscular envelope itself. Such species of viable statehood being living, breathing, organic, responsive realities with which certain older systems, much discussed on this site, were so happily replete, tending to make the state not the pirate league that it is today but rather the antechamber to a Heavenly home.

July 9, 2018: The coming collapse of modern production methods: what does this mean for the Crusade?

Actually, it is a tremendous provender of hope, since the entire overbearing strength of the diabolical New World Order is based on today's ultra-centralized economy and an inseparable digital retrenchment of everything on earth, ranging from agriculture to education to energy to communications to transportation to weaponry. This whole monstrous totality, with its ugly cubic miles of concrete, its ceaseless commuting, its monolithic, brainwash-oriented academic and communications interface, its sky-darkening wind-turbines, its myriads of dope-peddling mobsters, politically-powerless laborers and high-handed functionaries, its "patriotism" which is only international piracy: this oppressive superstructure, formidable though it be, is engineered to fail, being intrinsically built upon debt rather than solvency, being preliminary to the most brutal and perverse totalitarianism ever seen. A day when everything will be done by naked force, with the human will only for exercise by ruling Nazis--read here Ashkenazis--the vicious and cruel: that which is at the very essence of sodomy and the whole satanic "self-identification" depravity scheme. While being essentially a milk-cow for well-heeled Jews, this digital military-industrial complex produces an assortment of mega-expensive jets and space-age-Big-Bertha-style armaments which typically require perfect conditions to operate, which malefunction, like the old M-16 rifle of the Vietnam War, in the midst of battle, just when needed most. As in a retailing of planes which drop like a rock in the middle of some space-age maneuver, scarcely letting the pilot jettison to safety, as no doubt even that digital component has also "frozen up". Thus too the mega-expensive productions of Detroit, these "latest model" digital masterpieces being amply represented among those seen so often disabled, on the back of some tow truck, or left somewhere, stubbornly-immovable like some braying modern-day donkey or mule, there beside the road. Even as this unearthly interconnected doomsday-machine is also destined to come to a grinding halt through a Heavenly intervention whose first beginnings have already appeared, as predicted throughout the Holy Bible and in prophesies of myriad anno domino saints, being plainly and graphically forecast by Our Blessed Lady in her prodigy-laden apparitions at Fatima and Garabandal of the past century in time. With the first of these Heavenly visitations, in 1917, to the horror of a hundred thousand witnesses, gathered there from all over Europe in the central Portuguese mountains, finding the sun seeming to plunge murderously toward the earth, amid cries of "the end of the world!". A fact duly reported even by agnostic, Freemasonic newspapers of Lisbon of the times, who had sent reporters there to mock and scorn, men who instead came back shaken to the bone, their written phrases piously subdued. This impossibility, of a solar plunge, of course symbolizing its opposite, for an earth which already for at least a decade has wobbled unpredictably, and whose orbit is skewed beyond any repair, like all such disabled satellites set to be absorbed by its ever-beckoning centrifocal star. All this, as seems clear to us, in a coming punishment a century ago pronounced by the celestial visitant, and in near future to so terribly arrive, whose final life-extincting consumation, as revealed at Fatima, will only be prevented by Our Lady's merciful hand. This being the only way we at the Crusade can interpret this "Miracle of the Sun", this prodigy of all times, which plainly needed the solar events of recent years for its true biblically-foreshadowed significance to be properly revealed in all its aweful force. While the second such prophetic Marian apparition, taking place in Spain in the '60s, at the very time of the diabolical Second Vatican rogue-council, declared that "many priests and bishops are traveling the road to perdition and taking many souls with them", while likewise speaking of the self-same punishment drawn in such precise and terrible contours at Fatima--again, as understood so plainly now in hindsight, as confirmed by present solar and climactic events--a divine retribution predicted as well in general terms as early as the miracle-laden visions of LaSalette in France in the 1840s. Garabandal however uniquely predicting a preliminary "warning" in which "the skin will burn", this occurence, biblically prefigured multiple times, without question signifying the mounting heat of a present-day sun, in between terrible storms whose stifling, steam-like moisture and ironic bouts-of-cold, from the planetary evaporative effect, is provoked thereby, preliminary to the incineration augured by all the above. Indeed this very punitive alternation between hot and cold having been predicted in the Old Testament as well. A terrible punishment finally to be halted, for the survival of a Godly fraction, only at Mary's motherly command: as magnificent prefigurements at Fatima so plainly reveal, in a riveting preview of end-time things to come. (We say to skeptics: cannot God thus commission His Most Holy Mother, the New Eve, who helped the New Adam reclaim the human race, if He similarly tasks the much-lesser, Mary-attending angel choirs?) Thousands of orbiting satellites soon to veritably melt and disintegrate under an intensifying, oven-like solar heat, biblically predicted to become as bright and hot as "seven suns"--plainly forecasting the "warning" of Garabandal--before the fatal plunge ensues, and the ultimate incineration takes place. The debris meanwhile to dive murderously to earth, useless "state of the art" junk raining down upon a "progress"-worshipping mankind little acquainted any longer with anything non-digital, non-orbital at all. And in any case with no time left to reconfigure to older forms--a near-impossible task to begin with, the digital revamp having been achieved with breathless and irreversible completeness by "progressive" investors, politicians, scientists and engineers. Any return to that recent older direction being thus firmly precluded, to re-learn less arch-technical, semi-manual, largely long-forgotten skills such as our canny grandfathers once so marvelously displayed, in an impossible retro-conversions which a reenlivened "Industrial Age" of a mid-century before would require. Men today thus scarcely having a clue about "outdated", "primitive" but supremely dependable productive methods of earlier centuries past, of noble forefathers for whom gab, the Harbor Idol of a ribald "Liberty", or the soul-damning siren-song of an all-consuming, duty-shirking "successful retirement", wasn't the only thing in life that mattered. Today's shorts-wearing, busy-as-a-bee retirees having "no time" to prepare their souls for death, while anything pious just wouldn't be "politically correct" among all the other self-congratulating occupants there at the trendy RV park. Noble forebears, disowned-by and utterly alien to this breed, having had no inclination to do any unconscionable thing at all to "keep that job", or earn that graduate degree, and who were thus much more likely ready to meet their Maker after earnest, soul-searching toils here on earth were done.

Then it is, amid frightful, ominous heavenly signs, that the good, albeit staggeringly outnumbered, will as predicted by a hundred saints and biblical lines overcome legions of the perverted and wicked, so rampantly dominant today, in a confrontation no doubt to find its last battle taking place at Armageddon in the present "State of Israel"--a place and showdown perhaps identifiable with the "battle of the Birch Trees" in prophetic parlance of Catholic saints--when the noted punitive Heavenly prodigy will literally incinerate the myriads of wicked combatants, composed of Jews and their allied hoards, during that final battle whose blood will come up to "the bridle of a horse". This while spare numbers of the just are protected by the merciful interposition of the loving divine hand, as mediated by Our Blessed Lady, in ways discussed by both Scriptures and saints of yore. This progressive annihilation of planet earth by the sun being predicted by numerous saints of a thousand years to consume some three quarters of humanity in its ironic cinder-laden darkness and blazing solar fire, a gigantic number indeed, among which unfortunately will be many good souls as well, among those not conversant with heaven-sent instructions to be followed by those true believers who would wish to survive. Hence a long-predicted need to cover over windows, so as not to witness the fiery divine punishment: here being an obvious direct parallel to the command given to Lot and his wife not to "turn around" and view Sodom and Gomorrah's demise: disobedience to which directive earned the woman her own deadly fate. Our world set to suffer the same fiery punishment, the only kind fit for the self-same filthy, odious crimes as disgraced the twin cities of ancient times. While likewise enjoined by at least one such saintly soul is a sealing of all openings, so as not to breath the poisonous air: which injunction may easily find a parallel in the Jewish Passover, when the Egyptian first-born were all destroyed, as if by some malevalent vapor. The heavenly prodigy no doubt bringing about a cessation of combat in its fiery approach, and a repairing-to-shelter of all involved: a measure to prove effective however only for thus-instructed righteous combatants involved, even as the wicked to a man, whatever precautions they might have in place, are burned alive. While Padre Pio the stigmatist also spoke of a need to keep blessed candles, which will alone give light, for use during this biblically-prefigured "three days of darkness", as named indeed by other noted saintly souls, as the history of salvation approaches its culminating phase. A time however concerning which Jesus tells us, to paraphrase from memory "when you see these things beginning to come to pass, lift up your heads, for your redemption is at hand!" As for one thing God never lets the wicked stay too long in power. These coming battles, with the side of the good no doubt, as already here and there in the Ukraine, flying the colors of the old American Confederacy, as do we, being destined to be fought in the most rudimentary of ways, with stunning victories such as these heroic Eastern Ukrainians have continually achieved, against an "advanced" weaponry and "mine is but to do or die" soldiery so poorly motivated to do battle, in wars which must be justly waged or be infamously regarded as mass-murder of ones fellow man. These newer methods, even when marginally operative, being as noted utterly dependent upon soon-to-fail sattelites and digital circuitry, set to be less than useless to the military man. This mammoth providential failure being the blessed avenue by which the humblest of men and women will find a new and unlooked-for importance, as instructors in tried and true methods, as spinners and weavers, as blacksmiths and swordsmiths, growers of healthy, hand-harvested, non-gmo crops, instructors in childhood and civic virtue, and so on. While the wild, perverted, ribald hoards of the wicked, the final harvest of today's "self-identifying" breed, will be steadily cut down in their over-confident aggressions by these ancient weapons and finally consumed by this blessed Kamikazi, this "Heavenly Wind" of fire. Their perverse, overbearing presumption, their gloating arrogance, remembered only as an ugly and happily-forgotten dream.

Thus, finally, do we ask these good souls of many lands, these Mongolians or hinterland Russians or Chinese who aren't yet entirely ignorant of these older methods, as are most of us for the most part here in the USA, to lend new vigor to their horsemanship, to dust off the old anvil, repair the forge, bellows and other simple accessories, to go back to harvesting and grinding grain by hand, the latter as do we on the Crusade: which alternatives although "abysmally backward" and "ignorant" are incredibly efficient, produce marvelously healthy food, and leave no unpayable million-dollar debts of mammoth farm machinery in use today. That which will so soon take its rusty, obsolescent place along side preternature behemoths like wind generators and other gargantuan parts-of-structures hauled down highways today, slated in future for collapse and incineration by divine command, together with those wicked whose reign they now expensively serve. Those ugly hulks of metal and plastic, those "oversize loads", whose digitally-driven purposes thus oddly fragmented and dangerously spirited down our highways can hardly be guessed at all. And we will prevail with our Jeb Stuart style cavalry charges, our broadswords and bucklers, our Sioux or Parthian or bows and arrows, our divine aid, our brotherly trust, "as when knighthood was in flower". A coming time when Our Blessed Lady, the New Eve, as predicted in Genesis, will crush the head of Satan and his perverse and malevolent breed with "her heel". Which humble down-trodden organ of this general of the heavenly armies symbolizes we her humblest and least-pre-possessing of children, waiting even now for her every divinely-maternal command.

July 22, 2018: Unless a nation is founded with the purpose of enforcing good and moral laws then it is no nation at all, but only a league of choas and piracy.

But it took schemers at the level of the Founders, secret-society functionaries to a man, to concoct an idea of the state as a "Noble Experiment" for other things beside justice or right, rather indeed for unqualified liberty, which plainly means liberty to do wrong, with only the most artificial and perfunctory restraint by "law". And how is such a society held together, where an explosive mixture of unscrupulous, self-willed, disorder-breeding men runs rampant, exerting simple naked force, in a choatic maelstrom so evident at all levels today, under all the democratic cant? With the cruel and barbaric very quickly gaining the upper hand, when gentle persuasions of law are not on the side of the ever-mild and cooperative good, this ring-earred bbreed steering the "state" by force in the direction of their every larcenous, murderous, self-gratifying whim. Like the "government" of the one-time international pirate Bluebeard, in whose regime the good were made to "walk the plank", and the unscrupulous wined and dined and catered-to at every turn.

Any such association, no matter how stirring its theatrical preambles, declarations or constitutions might be, is no country at all, and is typically-enough put-in-place on the bones of something truly good, just and noble that went before. Just as in the case of the USA, which was founded expressly to run-to-ground the marvelously fruitful and productive French and Spanish colonies of the entire Western Hemisphere, upholders of Christian principles, cultivars of native-Indian wealth, whether in herds which ran in the millions, in a state-of-the-art ship-building which rivalled or surpassed that of Spain, or in myriad other varieties of indigenous industry and wealth. These including cordage, mining, vinyards, every other ebullient and constructive pursuit under the sun. And in a native Aztec seated among other professors at the University of Mexico City, in a truth-loving rather than word-smithing intellectuality assiduously harbored under Spanish-Catholic auspices and care. Such efforts having indeed been duplicated in French-colonial realms, in a Quebec which converted northern tribes whose combined populations ran into many millions: eager recipients of Sacramental graces, Pottowatomie, Pawnee, Shawnee, a hundred other bands, set to be barbarously scattered across Western reaches of the future USA, initially by grim-mannered New England Colonial who couldn't abide the holy processions, the rosaries, the charitable sodalities, the convents and universities, thriving so close by, full of French-and-Indian-speaking natives bursting with industry and Gospel love, hating no one at all. The U.S. quickly thereafter, following its own occult inception, sending order-overthrowing Masonic revolutionary theorists and agitators into Latin America, where on the heels of events in New England, and as aided locally both by plentiful crypto-Jews of the Habsburg Royal Monopoly and by self-seeking, easily-convinced "Criollos" or native-born men of Spanish descent, it swiftly organized a treacherous, proto-Marxian "kicking in" of the "rotten" colonial "door", ruled in so looseknit a way from so far away. The USA itself having been established through schemes and machinations not only of Jews and Freemasons but of radical Calvinist Puritans, many of them veterans of Cromwells bloody pogroms against all order and peace in England and Ireland before, their colonial rebellion fueled by a rabid resentment that King George III, like his Hanoverian predecessors before, had no interest in uprooting Catholic France or Spain from the New World. All these ever-scheming republican forces seeking no nation-definitive common good but rather an officially-imposed moral chaos which renders unscrupulous, indeed diabolical, personal dominion entirely rampant and unchained. All this "democracy" under the cloak of the "now you see it, now you don't" of endless manipulation and intrigue: where by dint of a balancing act of false-flag patriotism, red-faced polemic and political abstraction the citizen awakes one fine day, snapping out of his accustomed reverie, like many of us did around 1990 or so, and finds himself in chains, and with no nation at all to call a home.

June 26, 2018: Some brief reflections on the Catholic political order versus the "self-winding", self-detonating "clock" of the modern Judeo-secret-society led world.

But in fact there is no self-winding clock here at all, but rather the most primitive sort of mainspring, whose hoary coils are turned and tightened by the biblical "enemy of mankind", in secretive windings of a money-counting Jewish hand. Adolph Hitler having only removed the last moral barrier in the way of this ancient totalitarian scheme, ruefully warned-against by a long line of popes reigning in every age, the madman creating martyrs for the cause out of some number of mostly-pious Jews--no six million--in the manner of those false-flag operations which since the American Revolution and its skillfully-invented "enemy", the mild and kindly King George III, have been the leitmotif of global conflict among this ever-secretive ruling crowd. He whom the Royal Colonies of the American South of those distant days, peopled by loyal subjects mostly averse to radical Calvinist Puritanism and its grim, bloodletting-Cromwellian creed, would hardly by their own initiative have rebelled against. Having been skillfully cajoled by such prime occultists of the late eighteenth century as Benjamin Franklin and Samuel Adams, some of them easily-enough trans-oceanic colleagues of the then-rampant Weishaupt of Illuminati fame. That cabal of eight or nine people, founded with high significance in that same 1776 in which the Declaration of Independence was proclaimed, they who still to this day speak directly to Satan in formal conferences, in the red glow of infernal flames, learning his latest hellish dictums to impose upon feckless men. For as it turns out there are only two worldviews of any lasting consequence, those of Heaven and those of Hell, with the latter always requiring impenitrable secrecy and incessant lying to "see things through". Conducting mankind through a series of shutes and blinds into the slaughterhouse which our oh-so-democratic and oh-so-scientific world has become.

Alas, the adolescent mind is especially vulnerable to sweeping and oversimplified ideas, concepts which have about them a certain easily-bought air of the heroic, simply because they allow us to "be done with things" in the "neatest" and "most efficient" sort of way. Thus the overpowering appeal to some minds of the Copley tintype much alluded-to here, of Revolutionary-era figures with high theater marching down some Boston cobblestone street, "being done with things" against a Georgian monarchy which, far from being tyrannical, rather epitomized a resurgence of English royal mildness, following murderous rampages of a Parliament-ruling Cromwellian breed so admired on these shores. The immature being especially restive when it comes to a patient and laborious working out of thorny details such as are definitive to human life, and especially to many-faceted, detail-entrenched particulars of political affairs. Thus the tremendous power of Donald Trump, who is the unrivaled master of the stunning and immediate in these times, a man indeed expressly put-in-place to supply this note of heroic theatrical simplicity-of-deed, with however so little substance being actually involved. Hence too the incredible advancement of this "sexual self-identification" fantasy, that hideous disfigurement of human character being so assiduously taught in grade school and grad school alike, by an American teaching establishment which for a half-century has been the starting point of every incendiary, radical-revolutionary outburst among the nation's eager and untried young.

No, my friends, by the grace of God we here at the New and Better Confederacy choose the staid and mature rule of God, as revealed to us in the doctrines of the Catholic Faith, over any such "advanced", "exciting", "expert"-directed schemes as the synagogue may supply. Choosing genuine childlike simplicity, a worldview which is "like an open book", patiently devoted to wisdom and truth, professing that true intelligence which is spiritual in nature, hardly needing the jerk-knee, owl-eyed sorceries now so ruthlessly, pitilessly employed. With no sweeping "master plan" except that of the Divine Master Himself, Who rules mysteriously indeed, as only He is entitled to do, who by His providence opens up His hand "to feed every living thing", and superabundantly every reasoning being, in every regard. Nourishing a human happiness conceived from the beginning in His own divine Mind, a cavernous capacity which only He knows how most comprehensively to fill and satisfy. Divinely providing a cornucopia which satiates our every moral, spiritual and physical need, while supplying us with those sociopolitical and economic principles of Catholic Distributism which should govern the ever laboriously-patient, open and above-board acts and plans of every nation under the sun.

June 22, 2018: "Be satisfied with your pay; do no harm to any man."

These few simple words of Our Blessed Lord, when considered in conjunction with His other forthright statement of the Our Father--"Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven"--supply us with the first primitive announcements of the coming development of the Catholic doctrine on the state. This intrinsic Catholic power to "develop" doctrine, inevitably mocked or questioned by Protestant divines, a rock-solid fixture of the One True Church however written about brilliantly by Cardinal Newman in the nineteenth century, being the principal manifestation of that indwelling of the Holy Ghost, that Paraclete promised by Christ while yet on earth, that Heavenly Dove Who as we are assured so clearly in Holy Scripture itself "will call to your minds all things that I have taught you." Henceforth by this divinely-established, living and breathing teaching power would "the things of Caesar" be more and more ranked subservient to "the things of God", in a newly-evangelized world which must needs become accustomed to a divine orientation by stages, to a statecraft no longer at the will and whim of some Caesar for whom war is thought a mere tool of self-glorification, and soldiers flock around the oratorically-captivating tribune who could most stir them to their passionate core. For the state is meant "for the building up, not the tearing down", for life and not for endless political chicanery and misprepresentation, followed by endless slaughter in hastily justified or even false-flag war, the latter with the strategic shedding of citizen blood in order to motivate unjust and unprovoked hostilities.

Yet God is mercifully patient with mankind when it comes to such thorny issues as combat, knowing that He couldn't expect the Christian love of neighbor to motivate war-related policy in a state still basically pagan to the core, with Christian men indeed to be found among the ranks of the legionaires, men who, for the very sake of the Holy Gospel, must not be thought of as undependable "when the chips are down". Early Christian soldiers having indeed proven themselves valiant in battle, for a Roman military in its age devoted to an unusual degree, despite noted ambitions of orators who held such popular sway, to civic and international peace and harmony. But ultimately, as the words of the Our Father so forcefully decree, the will of God is to be the guiding star not only of personal conduct--that to which it is so criminally and incredibly restricted today--but also of statecraft, of every pedestrian aspect of public policy, as well. Hence too ultimately that marvelous statement of papal authority contained in the infallible bull Unam Sanctam, placing "every creature" under the authority of Rome. As Christ did indeed intend His Vicar to be so constituted, in so utterly plenipotentiary a way, after His glorious Resurrection, as the doctrine on the state came more and more clearly to be accurately discerned and readily applied in its uniquely stentorian way. As knowledge trebles obligation, so that the Christian fold, organized in a Christian state, can no longer claim the absolving ignorance or incapacity once suffered by newly-converted ancestors of old. Here being realized in pregnant fullness the words, indeed the command, of Our Blessed Lord in the Our Father: "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven." That to which as Christians we must be in every moral and practical way indefatigably devoted, and with indomitable spiritual passion inseparably attached, to the laying down of our lives, for the salvation of our children, our neighbors, our fellow man.

Indeed, the kernel of the developing Catholic doctrine on the state is to be found clearly discernible in the divine injunction to Roman soldiers to "do no harm to any man", stipulating not only just personal conduct on the part of the individual soldier but also affirming that wars must be just and defensive in nature to be morally permitted at all. All this in stark contrast to a modern-day teaching that war is the unquestionable prerogative of the state, implying that morality or justice don't even figure into it in any significant way, or that the state is possessed of a might-based morality all-its-own. Modern conviction, particularly in the USA, going well beyond conceding the benefit of a reasonable doubt to ones government, the military prerogative being rather regarded as an absolute, not to be questioned by the citizen at all.

May 30, 2018: Self-control the only liberty worth having.

We are our own worst enemy if we don't first "put bit and bridle" on ourselves, on our own disorderly inclinations, and it is the good state, so rare today, which God ordains to procure us precisely this boon. But under today's chaos-breeding secret-society-dominated governments we easily become like "a ship without a rudder" in the shark-infested waters of human life, standing in dire need of the formative influence of good laws, of pious and fraternal customs, modest dress and behavior, good companionship, indeed of self-discipline-encouraging music and song. While in stark contrast has the devil busied himself over recent centuries in the perception of liberty as being his own infernal "I will not serve!", as being the unrestricted license to do ones own disorderly and ultimately-self-destructive "sweet will and whim". One medical doctor of our times, a supposed authority, having even claimed that self-restraint is "unhealthy", that it is opposed to "will power": when in fact the will is exercised most tellingly when we discipline ourselves, "taking the beam out of our own eyes so that we may see to take the mote out of our brother's". While to the contrary when we permit ourselves to be driven like a feather before the winds of unruly passions, that unhinged moral condition which this sort of "will power" implies, then we are shorn of reason, incapable of actions constructive, beneficial and good. Under constraints of our inescapable physical/spiritual condition, self-restraint being a critical necessity that only fools deny, they whose "will-power" is only an infantile capitulation to the passive or reactive proclivities which the fiend ceaselessly plies. This self-destructive rejection of the truly active and enterprising being an epitome in that Copley tin-type much referred to here, of Colonial malcontents prancing down some Revolutionary-era Boston cobblestone street, spreading the spirit of ribald disorder everywhere their weird cacophony struck the public ear. This allegedly "noble" experiment, with beakers bubbling in the alchemy of unrestrained violence, chaos and revolt, of which present-day American streets and homes are a fitting image indeed, being the whole purpose that Uncle Bar-Samuel now so feverishly prepares once again to go to war: this time against Russia, easily the only decent country left on the globe. This "noble cause" for which any amount of false-flag provocation is thought "worth the price", as long as such a "freedom" can "march forward" in this centuries-long delerious way. By definition involving the 9/11-like "in house" shedding of American blood to motivate battle, sacrificing our own young on this dual altar of Baal and Mars.

Rather, the progress that matters to we Confederates is progress in virtue, the only freedom that of a clean conscience, of a pure and innocent mind, perfectly alien as this might be to the present false liberty now being peddled in American schools and courts. With this "self-identification" fantasy in particular being a hideous disfigurement of the national character, a fatal perversity which this "patriotic" bombast, Donald Trump, will not bother to so much as even address. Concerning himself feverishly with any other lesser issue which his impenitrable lodge-house-cunning mind might suggest. Even indeed preparing as he does to outlaw, to criminalize such truth-telling as takes place here on this site. His brand of false, fanatical patriotism always calling truth treason, sedition or some sinister such thing.

"Secede!...Come out from among them and touch not the unclean thing."

May 21, 2018: Closed to grace: akin to mortal sin, predictive of eternal loss.

Man being a rational creature related in the core of his being to the angels far more than to those grazing beasts with which he is most associated today, he therefore properly, if he would be good and worthy, deals much more in the currency of grace than materiality, typically receiving Heavenly infusions as relayed to him through the descending order of those same angelic choirs. This while our "advanced" New World Order would actually place man far below the animal world, by present twisted laws and court-rulings denying him even that natural law which these humble-yet-innocent creatures so assiduously observe. Grace sharing an universal attribute of humility, often coming to us in the humblest earthly guise, most commonly and pointedly indeed in dealings with our fellow man, whose supplications or kind words we must never bruskly sweep aside or politely ignore. For by such callous refusals we reject as well the heavenly nourishment which these personal encounters so marvelously contain, overtures each of which is like an incarnation all-its-own, giving grace a personal and material envelope, as it were, readily grasped and entertained. A contrary callous impermeability instantly calling forth the divine punishment of blindness-of-heart, since as all this suggests both cries and greetings of our fellows are graces from God in their own most fundamental way, with the Deity working most commonly among we mortal and contingent creatures through these brethren, "whom you see", the rejection of whose kindness, solicitude or need signalizes the rejection of the grace of that God "whom you do not see".

By this crooked path of hardness-of-heart then does the soul wend its treacherous way to Hell, avoidance-of-which well-deserved place-of-torment is secured by the coin of divine grace alone, so different from cruel base-metal castings provided by the modern Judeo/secret-society world. Thus then as suggested is this closed attitude toward graces of any kind amplified, seconded thunderously, as Holy Scripture assures us, by the divine curse of "blindness of heart" and "deafness of ear", signifying the drying up of the flow of grace from the other direction, namely from God Himself. This marvelous divine outpouring being matched in the soul not by anything of merit in itself, but only by a passive non-resistance: after which, in this supernal realm, it is God Who does everything else. Plying those biblical "living waters" which He first offers to each and every soul, in every instance or event, and His withholding-of-which sends one stumbling down that descending rocky road. This hardness, this starved grace-related condition, becoming indeed progressively more obdurate as time goes on, in a spiritual impotence whose terrible outlines can actually be seen on the rock-like features of the most reprobate of souls, their callous condition betraying them in hideous detail to the discerning, no matter how much their pious pretenses, their manner or appearance might suggest otherwise. So that finally such a soul becomes a ready vehicle of all wrong, as in today's growing murderous, malicious sodomite throngs. For God bars the floodgates of grace to us when we show this inclination to refuse same, being the sovereign source of all good it is He Who rejects us much more decisively than we who reject Him, inflicting upon the hard-hearted this further much-biblically-remarked curse of blindness and deafness of soul. Making us impotent in the first instant of the potential heavenly exchange, of which God as noted is always the point-of-origin, and not we ourselves. We in such case having indeed proven to be like the servant who buried his talent in the ground, who dealt with this all-generous God as if He were "a hard man": a Master Who instantly takes up the same cue, casting that servant into the grace-barren "outer darkness, where there is the weeping and the gnashing of teeth."

Thus is there something about this grace-preliminary creaturely hardness or unresponsiveness which is already close kin to mortal sin: the part expected of us in this all-determining exchange being as noted only the lowly one of simple non-refusal, rather than anything active or independent that we ourselves can do. With grace flowing out prodigally to all the non-refusing as if impetuous tides of a supernatural sea. Whereas a crusty human refusal announces the inevitable subsequent arrival of grave sin in rueful tones, this hardness or obduracy being preliminary to that formal spiritual death, mortal sin, into which God allows the grace-hardened soul to fall. This biblical divinely-inflicted blindness and deafness, together indeed with foregoing instances of a creaturely refusal of grace, these misfortunes having about them both something hideous which already anticipates mortal sin: the inevitable, thundering divine penalty for first and subsequent turnings-away-from-grace. All implying a mystery-bound hardness the lowly creature must never entertain, at the start being found a hardened orientation that by frightful divine confirmation will easily go with the soul to the grave. But because man is a physical as well as a spiritual creature, he must formalize this momentous condition, of creaturely non-resistance or polar-opposite inflexibility, in some act, whether good or ill, brokering, in staggering mutual inconguity, either virtue or mortal sin. Human acts signaling a state of virtue or sin, providing to the soul too a clear roadmarker of where it presently is on the salvation-related road. Quite the contrary being the case of the angels, whose fall-from-grace at the beginning was instantaneous and irrevocable, of the decisive spiritual orientation of formal will-related refusal, without any act being required.

Again, in the last and fatal analysis it is God Who rejects the creature most decisively, rather than the creature who most tellingly rejects God, with the Creator decisively withholding life-giving grace, rendering man progressively incapable, impotent in that all-important regard, after first offerings, and less-and-less-frequent subsequent ones, have been so callously refused. Brokering an impermiability which becomes more final and impenitent, unless somehow the deadly tailspin is arrested, and grace at last allowed to reign. This merciful outcome, not however to be presumed-upon at all, often being effected by the prayers and penances of others, most especially of those monks, nuns, anchorites and other devout souls, with whose legitimately-established number, decimated terribly after Vatican II, the Church was once so full. The blindness of heart, deafness of ear which otherwise results signifying the divine "casting forth into the outer darkness", that which proves more and more permanent and decisive as times goes on. This obdurate condition being a terrible fate before which we must all tremble, the avoidance-of-which must make us strive to be as sensitive as possible to the needs and friendly overtures of our neighbor: the "real man" or "real woman" who callously brushes off these encounters giving evidence not at all of "character" or "strength" but rather of that terrible hardness-of-heart, references-to-which the Holy Bible is so full. A flint-like condition whose ever-threatening advent must however fill us with penitence, heartfelt-humility, repentent fear and hope, rather than with the biblical talent-burying despair.

April 30, 2018: Is your plastic water-bottle going to have a baby? Estrogen in these containers would seem to suggest same.

A "stunning breakthrough" indeed this would be, as "self-identifying" bottles would simply proliferate, in a way vaguely reminiscent of school kids by that name today, this "new and exciting" initiative auguring no more need for plastic container factories at all, like the legendary marriage between canon-balls, said in low-brow-jocular cicles to produce millions of "beebees" for airgun-users to employ. But on a more serious note, such an anomaly harmonizes supremely well with a techo-complex which for decades now has dumped hormones into everything it can, with doctors indeed prescribing them for ailments easily cured in standard ways, but more decidedly leaving behind a patient with stubbornly-permanent embarrassing features of the opposite sex, like beards on women, and big breasts on men. While relentless use is made of this whole unthinkable overstep, like every other perversion or depravity of our age, under furiously-fluttering banners of "progress" and "liberty" for heinous experimentations, and unfettered license for a pompous ilk with a six-digit income or more. This rigidly-sequential, determinist/reductionist tautology of progress with preternaturally animates the harbor idol in the bay of New York being sustained by wild-eyed-infernal visions of Bonesman/Third-Reich engineers, with freak automated-production items like these gratuitous, fanatically-promoted water bottles, carriers which leaving traces of the same ubiquitous hormones wherever they go, whether inside or outside their more-proper bodily home, proving auxiliary to the school-counselor who gives out pills to a little Johnny with the strange ways and gigantic breasts. Dr. Jeckles of this star-spangled world turning out Mr. Hyde monstrosities by the score, brokering the destruction of our race, with no real advantages involved for anyone outside nether regions to enjoy. Are there cost-savings to be had? In the usual convoluted sense, perhaps, requiring you to first accept the whole ugly monstrosity, in a fanatical act-of-faith, of perverse totalitarian control in the hands of a tiny secretive few, who when not tinkering with little Johnny build mammoth, gratuitous, resource-misallocating, financially-unsustainable/false-flag-war "necessitating" industrial platforms, who have managed to destabilize the rotation of planet earth, who have no honor for God nor respect or regard for human life of any kind. True, strickly within this cemented-over, destruction-bound concept of mother earth there may be some tangential "efficiencies" involved in these hormone-pregant plastic containers of every size and type, among a million other "necessities" that grimly sustain a signature Judeo-secret-society morbidity-driven sense of no return.

All this Hegelian skullduggery, in turn, and as if it weren't enough, is also religiously enabled by a latter-day "Christian" clergy whose whole sociopolitical philosophy has been reduced over two centuries or so into one tidy if horribly-misinterpreted biblical sentence, which begins "Render therefore to Caesar...." Thus sacrilegeously enabled is an abject surrender of the human conscience to a brutal, secretive, population-experimental version of the state, in a capitulation of men-of-the-cloth which summarily pushes aside the doctrine of immemorial ages, of Old and New Testament times alike, of the philosophical cult-culture-law sequence, the "law of our minds" of all mankind. Namely of the fundamental subservience of the state to piety, virtue, religion, and in our era to the specifics of Christian morality, wherever the Holy Gospel has been preached and embraced.

But returning to our expectant water-bottles: thus is human life both individually and collectively put in mortal jeopardy by cancer-causing, personality-destabilizing hormones they contain: secretions somehow expensively extracted from animal life, or, who knows, perhaps even-more-expensively mass-produced in bubbling chemical factories that proliferate like cancer cells as well. These and other ugly behemoths hogging up a landscape once lovely and calming, sustaining and inviting, for our much-blessed forefathers part of a terrestrial existence that was a boon companion to a Heaven-bound soul.

Secede! "Come out from among them...and touch not the unclean thing."

April 23, 2018: Improbable but compelling cause: more on police investigations. Intend someday to segregate all these articles on tradition justice administration into one link, but under present circumstances have no convenient way to accomplish this needed task, so that for now you must pick through subsequent articles to find others of the same general kind.

A constant theme on this site is an havoc-harboring emphasis upon unfettered liberty for the wicked, and for all-powerful hyper-secretive groups, key elements in a political philosophy which keeps anything like a real community or country from developing in its sole definitive sense, of the common good, rather favoring the advancement of evil, cryptic and destructive men at every turn. Symptomatic of which end-time condition is the way police investigations are conducted--or rather not conducted--with respect to murder and other violent or twisted crimes--90-some percent of which carry an "unsolved" label into computer-file or file-cabinet dusty perpetuity--murderous infractions whose investigators have their hands tied largely by way of a "probable cause" requirement which carries about it the decided air of something quite close to being already solved. This shackling of the lawman in favor of the unfettered criminal being in turn a deafeningly-unacknowledged counterpart to Enlightenment-era, Judeo-Masonically inspired "liberty", that borderless impunity in which human life counts for little at all, whether in the womb, in perpetual, Trump-style-uprighteous, Yankee false-flag wars, or in today's growing criminal slaughter in homes and on streets, trespassing every bound of millennial civilized life. The latter mild and clement cultivar counted under these radical ideas as unbearable tyranny, indeed with once-standard civil conversation itself, as noted frequently on this site, the very cement that peacefully holds together a nation, neighborhood or town, being a chief victim of this chaotic view. With every species of social hostility now being yawningly regarded as the norm, thanks to well-heeled eighteenth-century Freemasonic Colonials with their chaos-conjuring fife and drum.

Floodgates of social and moral pandemonium, furthermore, were hacked open so wide not only through the noted secret-society-concocted definition of political liberty but also through highly-supportive categoricals of modern psychology and psychotherapy: these indeed seemingly invented for that very chaos-breeding, law and order disolving cause. Fantasies which absolve the legendary twisted killer without a soul, indulgently calling him a "sociopath", expending boundless pity rather than relentless rigor of law upon same, indeed with a great flourish of social-worker cry-rags and movieland glorifications galore. The police, meanwhile regarded dismissively as the fools and "flat feet" of 'thirties movieland lore, having themselves indeed been professionally formed into this near-impotent condition--as good and noble as they typically are--by the very same "liberty-loving", ever-patiently-secretive elites, over the less than two centuries these lawmen have actually been in existence as an occupation all its own. Coming into being as modern police work did only in the 1820s, upon the heels of the advent of U.S. liberal democracy, that which by its infernal nature creates a domestic-tranquility-destructive chaos which requires these battalions of uniformed men, a process-philosophical "progressive" political form which must religiously destroy every good thing that went before, having in the beginning indeed served as the very directive mother of that more openly violent version introduced in France by Robespierre. The latter homicidal worthy at whose elbows stood Jefferson, Franklin, Samuel Adams, et al, during a whole prior decade as Judeo-Masonry-installed diplomatic emmissaries to that once-noble land. From which privileged position this secretive coterie urged the coming Parisian slaugherhouse motif quietly on.

But departing entirely from sterile abstractions of radical political philosophers like Thomas Paine, and as frequently noted on this site, the whole matter of keeping the peace was in prior ages the easily-accomplished, well-neigh-exclusive province of the neighborhood, expressed sociopolitically in the Frankpledge, or English ten-head-of-household corporative overseer of domestic tranquility and life. This ancient configuration, finding many fascinating parallels among early-medieval Muslims and ancient Persians, Mongolians and Chinese, accounting for the near total lack of crime in medieval towns and streets, with the legendary "hue and cry" having been the inforcement mechanism of a peace which happily knew no shackles or bounds. And had few if any "homicide files", nor had ever heard of a dope-pusher at all. The Frankpledge operating in graceful organic tandem with an Hundred Court intimately familiar to all at this once-beloved micro-local venue, with ambient, perfectly-informal preventive investigations ongoing, redundant and self-reinforcing, as indeed earnestly desired by those "dear hearts and gentle people" who made up the constructive, harmless and good neighborhoods of yore. In a marvelously-kindly, neighborly solicitude, rather than today's class-hostility-bred, furrow-browed "neighborhood watch" suspicion, an immemorial "looking in on one another" which wherever it is alive instantly senses when something is terribly wrong in some association, workplace or home. In a society in which all were "police investigators" in their own humble, brotherly and sisterly way. Triggers of duly-roused suspicion in those blessed days, "when knighthood"--rather than criminality--"was in flower"--having indeed typically been of an exceedingly indirect, tangiential or peripheral nature, indeed partaking of a hallowed "discernment of spirits" which is now universally regarded as a laughable indulgence in "old wives tales". Those "hunches", as they might be called, which movie and TV detectives once so famously plied with such celebrated but purely-fictional results. For "evil is of such a mien", according to the old adage, that it "doesn't add up", all the while it scarcely advertises itself as a "crime in progress", liberally exhibiting "probable cause", as if to willingly submit itself, in all its "liberty-loving" glory, to handcuffs and prison-yard life, with no struggle at all. While in our own heedless day, following the fatal bend of fallen nature and to put the proper ending on the saying quoted above, "Evil is of such a mien, as to first be pitied, then humored, then embraced". Sic semper law enforcement under today's social-disestablishmentary, deconstructionist, everything-is-off-limits law-un-enforcement ideas.

Actually and as all the above suggests, and as any good cop in more candid moments will probably tell you, there is no solution to this pressing problem of peace and security on our streets and in our homes than to return to that only-genuine society inherited from ancestors of old. That Christendom whose major outlines were indeed revealed to us by Our Blessed Lord, and put into practice by His Church, under the guidance of that Blessed Spirit Who "recalled to their minds all things" which He had said while still on earth. This marvelous heritage cultivated over the millennia by a clergy in close, morally-directive league with civil society at every turn, in every age, in every place. There is no turning back from this path, then, of the thoroughgoing fulfillment of a Lord's Prayer--with its impossible-to-misinterpret "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven"--except to take that downward trail of that practical social apostasy which abounds today. That sociopolitical cowardice which in a few short decades has steadily poisoned most every soul. This in a mounting mass reprobation discerned with frightful evidentiary certitude on the faces and in the manners of modern men, as growing numbers increasingly wend their way with morbid "liberty-loving" finality to Hell. Where as holy seers tell us the souls of the damned are bent over forever, in two, in darkness and stench, flames and smoke, and are so "free" as to scarcely be able to move a finger or toe.

Retractions and clarifications: September, 2018: Several years ago I wrote an article extremely critical of John and Robert Kennedy, after having read a biography written by three White House aids of the Kennedy years, including Kenny O'Donnell. However, upon discussing the matter with my wife and collaborator Joann, and after much further thought, have realized that many of the insinuations in that book were nothing but vicious slander, as the Kennedy's, who so heroically gave their lives fighting the evils of this system, couldn't possibly have been as childish and even vile as they are portrayed in that work. As always, I hope to track that article down and change it, a task which however will have to wait until I have the opportunity to spend a whole day doing so, as there is a lot of material to look through, fifteen years worth, to that end. Also, you will find in perusing these many years of writing that I have changed my mind on one or two other issues as well. But therein is implied that great adage, when men still had minds, to wit: "A wise man can change his mind; a fool never does."

November, 2017: In an article on one of the above links I spoke of the New Testament as being inspired scripture only in the original version as it came from the evangelist's hands, with later copies and translations only carrying full divinely inspired status when interpreted according to Catholic Tradition. For otherwise, so the reasoning goes, the Church would have to vouch for the precise skill and authenticity of each copy or translation, the originals having no longer been extant even by the time of that St. Jerome who compiled the Vulgate. While I had no intention of denying that even these intermediate copies and translations, as well as the Vulgate and later translations, carried and do carry a certain degree of venerable dependability. This assertion of mine originated in turn from statements of an acquaintance who was a student of Father Hardin, a noted latter-day conservative Catholic theologian: although I cannot vouch for the credibility of either the student or Father Hardin himself. Yet the assertion seems logical enough, and was made out of loyalty to Holy Mother Church, who is so often attacked with the use of a New Testament of which she herself is in a very real sense the source, having declared the Gospels and Epistles canonical centuries after they were first committed to writing by the Evangelists' hands. Also, I made the claim in a February 3rd article of a proven link not only between the CIA and the "Islamic State" but also included Israel in this linkage, for which there isn't the same material evidence, even if it is indeed entirely likely. Thus the passage was corrected accordingly to give proper emphasis where it belongs. Also, have stated mistakenly that grand juries are a recent invention of the courts, this error stemming from my habit of writing from a sometimes-faulty memory rather than checking the facts. Rather what I had read about some years ago was the unprecedented use to which grand juries were being put during anti-racketeering hearings of the 1950s. Also, my apologies for mistaking the name of the Russian Patriarch as Alexander when it is in fact Kirill, and a number of others errors of this material rather than conceptual kind. Also, I tend to get up in the morning, when ideas are numerous and lively, and somehow unaccountably write very tersely, as if a readers with thus-few mental trail-marks knew where I was headed, or what it actually was I wished to say. These pieces tending to sound either bombastic or clueless and meandering: articles I invariably develop more fully within a day or so. Also, I regret any criticisms of priests that are found here, and try to keep them limited only to those that seem essential in my attempts to understand and explain what has happened to the Catholic Church over the past century and more of prophetically-predicted infiltration by evil men. Also, any positive comments made here and there on this site about polytheists (pagans) are made in spite of their polytheism rather than because of it. For certainly there are always good things as well as bad at work in all people, and God looks primarily at the heart, so that provided the ultimate state is finally arrived at, sometime before the hour of death: namely, of believing "that there is one God Who is the rewarder of the good and the punisher of the wicked", that a person can save their soul. Again, provided they "have a good heart", have sincerely sought the truth, but have somehow been prevented from attaining it in its entirety through some blameless sort of ignorance, or perhaps even some externally-imposed form of prejudice they are honestly unable to overcome. And of course while this struggle between good and bad goes on in those of other beliefs it does no good to refuse to see any hopeful or positive signs in them, in their civic institutions, and so on. These latter practical particulars of whole nations which can sometimes indeed be their chief harbingers of hope for both this world and the next. Those two realms whose imperatives so often closely coincide.
