Mandeville, LA – Today’s Pile of Prep: most of the stories and research used to put together the Mike Church Show on the Veritas Radio Network’s CRUSADE Channel. 2016 is here and WELCOME to the All-New, Mike Church Show on the CRUSADE Channel, listen LIVE for Free (don’t cost nuthin’).
Sapientia et Veritas -“The 2016 election is one of those rare moments when the repellent nature of both presidential candidates allows the rest of us to see our nation’s pastoral terrain as it really is. And the view is unpleasant. America’s cultural and political elites talk a lot about equality, opportunity and justice. But they behave like a privileged class with an authority based on their connections and skills. And supported by sympathetic media, they’re remaking the country into something very different from anything most of us remember or the Founders imagined. G.K. Chesterton once quipped that America is a nation that thinks it’s a Church. And he was right. In fact, he was more accurate than he could have guessed. Catholics came to this country to build a new life. They did exceptionally well here. They’ve done so well that by now many of us Catholics are largely assimilated to, and digested by, a culture that bleaches out strong religious convictions in the name of liberal tolerance and dulls our longings for the supernatural with a river of practical atheism in the form of consumer goods. People like Nancy Pelosi, Anthony Kennedy, Joe Biden and Tim Kaine are not anomalies. They’re part of a very large crowd that cuts across all professions and both major political parties. – Archbishop Chaput at Notre Dame,” REMEMBERING WHO WE ARE AND THE STORY WE BELONG TO
Buchanan: The Cabal Is On The Run From The Hoi Polloi – Patrick J. Buchanan reacts to what I call The Spirit of ’76’s Revival by Trumpzilla that I believe is a kind of Olive Branch petition smackdown. Buchanan posits that the peasants are gathering in large enough numbers to make the Mordor Cabal afraid for its ill-gotten subsistence nay opulence. Buchanan: “Consider: six months ago, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, the Clinton bundler, announced that by executive action he would convert 200,000 convicted felons into eligible voters by November. If that is democracy, many will say, to hell with it. And if felons decide the electoral votes of Virginia, and Virginia decides who is our next U.S. president, are we obligated to honor that election?”
Hoist The Carillion de Sacre Coure, A Christian Society In Southeast Louisiana Is Not Only My Dream – A new book coming out from R.R. Reno asks whether or not a Christian Society is possible in the modern age and if so what are its benefits? Reno correctly notes that the essential benefit of a Christian Society is that it elevates ALL thinking and ALL actions in pursuit of a higher purpose. Currently, what do ‘Muricans aspire to do with the whole of their lives? Acquire cars and TV’s and houses so large entire rooms become fodder for TV shows about “pack rats…horders”. The book, Resurrecting The Idea of A Christian Society contains this nugget of provocative Truth: “A Christian society nurtures in its citizens a desire for higher things. It prizes love and loyalty over intelligence and achievement. It honors devotion over a supposed critical independence. It offers enchantment, not disenchantment. A Christian society does not compel faith or install priests in positions of public authority. But it affirms that we are fully human and more genuinely free when we give ourselves to something higher.” Amen, brother, we need to find a mass manufacturer of the Carillion de Sacre Coure.
We Want Everyone To Be Pro-Life, Except Trumpzilla? – This writer at The Week lauds Donald Trump’s revulsion at Hillary’s final-debate admission, that she wants to make legal, abortion of fully gestated babies on the day of their birth. The writer, Pashcal Groby, then proclaims Trump “the worst possible spokesman” for the pro-life movement because “he is an obvious misogynist”. If the child to be killed is a female, and Trump thinks killing it is not acceptable at any stage of its development, how can he possibly be a misogynist, oh wait, maybe he is a part-time misogynist and only despises and “gropes” those women who are “worthy” of such a debasement? You see the disconnect here in proclaiming that someone is __________ because he is alleged to have done__________ therefore= he/she ALWAYS does________? Yet our Media Industrial Complex insists on this wretched formula, driven by a society so drunk with pride and gluttony, it cannot see that this terminology IS gluttonous. I’ll accept Trump’s pro-life advocacy, on a world stage, whenever I can get it and I suspect that the souls of thos children spared execution in the womb, will too.
The Spirit of ’76 Lives! – The most courageous thing said since the 1776 Continental Congress responded to King George III’s Proclamation of Rebellion was said by Donald J. Trump tonight in the misnamed “Debate”: When asked if he’d take the pledge to support Hillary’s rigged victory, Trump, staring down catcalls of “traitor” stood unmoved and repeated “No I will not take the pledge… I reserve judgement until I see the result…I’ll keep you in suspense.” With that, the revolutionary forces, including many a Bernie Sanders voter, began their alignment against The Cabal and toward the rebel. Not since the Continental Congress’s response to the Rebellion Proclamation has so bold a stand against an obvious abuse of power been made.
“We are accused of “forgetting the allegiance which we owe to the power that has protected and sustained us.” Why all this ambiguity and obscurity in what ought to be so plain and obvious, as that he who runs may read it? Read the whole thing here.
The New Lexington & Concord: Facebook!? The Cowardice of The Posted Opinion War – Here is a story that purports to tell the plight of those tortured souls, trying “save their country”, that have taken to the digital ramparts of Facebook and Twitter. “The anxiety is so bad for some they are turning off their computers and phones and turning away from social media.” If the “election” is sparking this kind of “anxiety” then we are approaching the end of this political paradigm where 51% of “the country” with the assistance of 5 Harvard graduates in black robes get to tell the 49% what to do. That people believe wars carried out with alphanumeric characters on computer screens are the equivalent of Light Brigades and Minutemen defending bridges in lower Connecticut shows the delusional state of far too many of our fellow citizens and their now, nearly complete detachment from reality. This is now so acute that the American Psychological Association has been called in to stop the cyanide pills and offers this sage advice: “The American Psychological Association recommends voters try to avoid conversations that could turn into confrontations, control their own actions and keep your eye on the big picture. “Remember whatever the outcome, this country will survive,’ said Dr. Douglas Haldeman.” Let us hope that by “this country” he means the locale that you or I call home.
The Nationalism Of Our Fathers…Desert Fathers That Is – Michael Lind pens a lengthy essay of the “Return of Nationalism” citing the tumultuous state of the United Kingdom, the Scottish Independence vote (failed); and the BREXIT Vote (successful) that have aligned somewhat local passions into independent sovereign states that determine the extent of their own borders. I agree that this movement has begun (see also Catalonia and Italy) but unless it is directed by leaders with correct thinking, revolutions will be the result, with violent revolution likely. Lind notes: “As John Stuart Mill wrote in his 1861 Considerations on Representative Government, ‘One hardly knows what any division of the human race should be free to do if not to determine with which of the various collective bodies of human beings they choose to associate themselves.'” But what Lind doesn’t tip the reader off to, Mill was a secular Utilitarian and he was rebelling against the remaining shreds of Christendom and for the pursuit of happiness as a system of morals. It is the Ultimate and Final unity that humans of all races find in Christ’s Church and his singular, Divine teaching authority, that can organize geographically and culturally: The Faith of Our Desert Fathers.
How Muricans Learned To Stop Worrying & Love The Bomb – The “War, war, war, bomb, bomb, bomb” ‘Muricans, cheering “conservatives” and Hillary whenever Russia and President Putin are cited for their “aggression”, are bringing us to the brink of a nuclear war that President Putin says the United States is trying to instigate. Watch this video (with subtitles) and make educate yourself on the the danger the American Military Industrial Complex has placed you, me and our children in.
What do #JesseJackson, #JohnEdwards & now #CrookedHillary have in common? – A: Lies, lust & corruption exposed by the National Enquirer. Today, the National Enquirer cover story features a 9 page exposé of Mrs. Clinton driven by the “confession” of a former Clintonista body guard: “Hillary Clinton is a secret sex freak who paid fixers to set up illicit romps with both men AND women! That’s the blockbuster revelation from a former Clinton family operative who is sensationally breaking ranks with his one-time bosses to speak to The National ENQUIRER in a bombshell 9-page cover story — on newsstands Wednesday.” Before you dismiss the story because it’s the Enquirer recall that the men mentioned in this story’s title all said the same thing as did 1988 Presidential candidate Gary Hart who was also exposed by the Enquirer. Of course, give our anti-culture’s current state of affairs, these revelations are more likely to land Mrs. Clinton a book deal and a 3 year run, “reality TV show” on Bravo then drive any voters away from her.
Hillary’s Campaign Tour Bus Dumps Hillary’s S**t Into City Storm Drain, And So It Begins – A business owner in Lawrenceville, GA was minding his own business when he spied a DNC-We’re With her-Campaign bus draining the contents of its on board toilets into a storm drain. The business owner called the cops who bore witness to “foul smell” and soiled toilet paper scattered around the drain. Recall that back in 2005, the tour bus driver for the Dave Matthews Band dumped that toilet into the Chicago river and onto a sight seeing boat below, loaded with tourists: “In a court hearing Wednesday morning, [Stefan] Wohl admitted that on the afternoon of Aug. 8, he discharged the septic tank while the bus crossed the grated Kinzie Street Bridge downtown, endangering about 100 sightseers riding the open-deck tourist boat passing under the bridge. Passengers on the tour boat, Chicago’s Little Lady, described a downpour of foul-smelling, brownish-yellow slurry that ruined their clothes and made several of them sick.” The citizens of Lawrenceville may have avoided being slimed by Hillary’s refuse but are sure to be thoroughly coated and revulsed by it if she is elected.
If The System IS Rigged, Then We Must Move To A New System – Trumpzilla has now added “the election is rigged” to his stump speech and it is gaining traction everywhere BUT the Industrial Media Complex; why? because it is True. Patrick J Buchanan weighs in on this with “The System Is Rigged” and repeats Theodore White’s observation from 1972: “The power of the press in America,” wrote Teddy, “is a primordial one. It sets the agenda of public discussion; and this sweeping power is unrestrained by any law. It determines what people will talk about and think about—an authority that in other nations is reserved for tyrants, priests, parties and mandarins.” Unfortunately Buchanan remains committed to “America” as the nation currently composed and currently organized. But as the American sage, Orestes Brownson recognized in 1873, “America”, organized under our Constitution is doomed to fail, UNLESS it pursues its catholic destiny: “But the American people need not trouble themselves about their exterior expansion. That will come of itself as fast as desirable. Let them devote their attention to their internal [catholic] destiny, to the realization of their mission within, and they will gradually see the whole continent coming under their system, forming one grand nation, a really catholic nation, great, glorious, and free.” 145 years on, Brownson’s hope can be safely dismissed as not having been tried and now made illegal which begs the question, to where do we look for hope? Read the entire chapter of Brownson that contains this passage and you will, with Good Will, be enlightened.
‘Murican Apostates: Good Luck Aspiring To A Future That Has No Future – Joseph Pearce reminds the 2016 quadrennial election followers who have become depressed and despondent over evil’s ascendancy that the promise of evil regimes has a very short shelf-life because it dismisses the human acts needed to CREATE the future. “As we await the fall of the Obamanation, we need to remember that the culture of death is a parasite. It does not give life; it only destroys or corrupts it. Like all successful parasites, it kills itself when it kills the host culture on which it feeds. It is not merely deadly but suicidal. It is unsustainable. It cannot survive. Let’s not forget that Hitler’s promise of a Thousand Year Reich lasted only twelve years.” So take heart, brothers and sisters, ours is the future so long as we remain humble, devout and men and women of The Faith, willing to live that Faith even if it means denying ourselves fleeting material gains that have no currency in eternity.
I Hate To Say “I Told ya so” But I Told Ya So – Say what you will about the FBI but there are career agents there who are pre-Clarice Starling affirmative action hires and take their work seriously (maybe even a few who joined pre-Obama). Knowing this it was not a stretch to predict that these agents would not be silent and allow Mrs. Clinton to fleece the bureau and make IT look corrupt and incompetent. Now the wheels are coming off the cone of silence enforced by the hit-men employed by the CGI. Add to this Obama’s disgusting attempt to shut down Julian Assange and we have the workings of the biggest scandal since Eve ate the forbidden fruit. The Nephilim spawn of Satan and Margaret Sanger is going to have a reckoning day, here on earth, and the entranced sodomites devoted to her reign of evil will do what? (answer: Blame Trump and claim his election is invalid…watch)
Rosaries To Defeat Hillary is working.
The Talk Radio Mafia In Not Pursuing Truth-Always-Gets Duped – The kingpins of the brain-dead, echo-chamber “conservative right” were hoaxed by a Twitter meme that was obviously a satire from the get-go. That didn’t stop Drudge, Limbaugh and even Scott Baio – Chachi! – from rage filled tantrums that the Clintonistas were actually tearing up absentee ballots sent through the U.S. Mail.
Hillary’s Goons Plotted The Bigot Bowl AND Planted Their Operatives INSIDE The Catholic Church – If Wikileaks latest releases from inside the diabolical DNC and the Clinton have done one thing I pray it is the revelation that there IS a spiritual war going on, right under our noses and souls and that evil has the advantage. Why? Consider John Podesta fantasizing about a “Catholic Spring”, an infiltration of the Catholic Bishops (which has been accomplished) to initiate, among The Faithful so “Catholics themselves demand the end of a middle ages dictatorship and the beginning of a little democracy and respect for gender equality in the Catholic Church.” Now the $202,247,624 million bribe the Obama administration has funneled to USCCB makes sense doesn’t it? Recall Elizabeth Yore’s “The Money Trail: Why Catholic Bishops Are Silent On Hillary“. This spiritual war has been waged by the “liberals” since Hobbes and for centuries, God raised Saints like Pius X to fight it. In the dying days of the American Empire, where is our saint? The fact is that if you are reading this after having prayed your morning Rosary, considered having your son join the Ordo Militaris, consciously mortified yourself and prayed for a Saint’s intercession or assistance of others or engaged in any similar activity and plan to do it all again tomorrow, you, the Church Militant, are that Saint. Do you now see, the real war of our time? in exactly one year, we will commemorate the 100 year anniversary of Fatima, and Hillary’s – Satan – goons will either be ascendant and we facing a white martyrdom or —-? Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
Hillary’s Goons Play The Bigot Bowl vs Catholics – If the Media Industrial Complex got a hold of the following leaked email from the Trump campaign, the illogical demagogue, Chris Cuomo would be camped out at Trump Tower, supervising the construction of a guillotine and awaiting the Donald’s arrival to his execution. Witness how I changed the bold words from the original:
Many of the most powerful elements of the liberal movement are all Jews (many converts) from the SC and think tanks to the media and social groups. It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith. They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Hebrew democracy.
That quote is an exchange between Hillary’s careerist goon John Podesta and near careerist femme-goon Jennifer Palmieri, only the bold words originally appeared, thanks to Wikileaks, as conservative, Catholic and Christian, proving that the great American tradition of bigotry practiced towards Catholics is alive and well and few will say anything about it. It’s The Bigot Bowl and Our Lord is the football while Hillary’s diabolical minions play referee. Read my entire take on this here.
It’s October And The Immodesty Is About To Go Nuclear Because It WENT Nuclear – Venerable Bishop Sheen called out ‘Muricah back in the 1960’s while speaking to a group of young Catholics on “Youth and Sex”: “8:15 in the morning, the 6th of August, 1945, when we flew a military plane over this city, when we dropped that atomic bomb on it; that bomb on blotted out boundaries. There was no longer a boundary between the military and the civilian, between the helper and the helped, between the wounded and the nurse and the doctor, between the living and the dead. For even the living who escaped the bomb were already half dead. So we broke down boundaries and limits and from that time on the world has said we want no one limiting me. … You want no restraint, no boundaries, no limitsI have to do what I want to do. Now let’s analyze that for a moment, is that happiness?”
The Tragedy of Post Christian, Philosophia Perennis Devoid Thinking – Read this piece from AmConMag writer Noah Millman to get a closeup view of why Philosophia Perennis is so desperately needed to corral the erroneous thinking Men are sure to engage in when NOT grounded in the eternal quest for True Wisdom i.s. Sapientia. The issue Noah, is not whether “only the Saints” can live by the Magisterial code, it is that by God’s Grace the Saints DID live the Tradition WHILE receiving the Graces needed to do so. You cannot approach Grace as zero sum, mathematics, as in if I do ______ I will receive ______ “Grace credits” but if I do ______I will have deducted ______ Grace Credits. Grace is present in the world and we are given the supply needed at Baptism, the suffering of the Christian Faithful is simply to maintain the state you enter at Baptism, using the Gospels and the Traditional Teaching as MEANS to that END. As Padré Gaetano tells us in Humility of Heart: “And has not a saint abundant reasons, from the thought of his own weakness, to live always in a state of great humility, when he knows that from one hour to another he may lose the grace of God and the kingdom of heaven which he has merited by years of laboriously-acquired virtues? “Unless the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it.”
