PART ONE: REFUGEES ON THE MEDITERRANEAN

February 8, 2018

(Don’t let your history be taken away from you!)

________________________________________________________

Any idea what this kind of cross means?

Trinitarian Cross

. . . .   red and blue . . .  ?

_____________________________________________________

 john boast people ref   If you read the news today, you’ll have heard of all the M os le m  “refugees”  fleeing    terrible conditions, risking their lives on rickety  boats, crossing the Mediterranean to find refuge.   The “news” articles regularly include admonitions (demands, really)  to Europeans to not reject these refugees  (few ever do) and to give them tax money and welfare aid,  giving preference to them over the Europeans (commonly done) .

If you read further,  you’ll see that the “refugee” camps where the boat people land are frequently places of crime, rape, revolt, and anger against the Europeans who are “rescuing” them.  (Not 100%, for those of you trained by marxist rhetoricians.  Of course not 100%)

The end point for these African “refugees’ of military age?     Often scenes like this:

DECENAS DE INMIGRANTES ENCARAMADOS A LA VALLA FRONTERIZA DE MELILLA

Africans invading Spain (recently)  from out of a “refugee” landing point.

And elsewhere, one of thousands of photos:

But it wasn’t always like this.  To call these militant young Islamists “refugees” is to pervert the word itself.    They have a different purpose from the millions of refugees throughout the centuries who were rescued across the Mediterranean from actual slavery and torture in Moslem  lands.

Let’s call them Moors, as history does.

john slaves being taken to mors

(Christian boat people)

Over the centuries,  millions of Christians from Europe (some of your ancestors)  were kidnapped from their homes and brought to, well,  Moorish countries, especially in North Africa.

Just as Christians who live in Africa today are being kidnapped from their homes,  sold into slavery,  married into another kind of slavery,  and never heard from again,  these Christian captives were  also never heard from again.    You live if you gave up your Christian faith – lived for a while.

The problematic evil of slavery has existed even before written history began – and it exists today:

Slave Women

It’s a real tragedy from the entertainment-news media that the nations excoriated for the evils of slavery are those very nations   (the White, European and European-derived nations)   that have eliminated slavery,  and  long before our great-greatgrandparents even lived!

This simply diverts attention from the real problem of modern slavery.

I don’t mean to imply that only women are taken as slaves.

Little boys . . .  (not for working “in the fields”:

peeking between fingers

And young Christian  men:

peek boy slave 400 dollars

The accompanying article said he was being sold for $400.   (equivalent American.)

What do you care about this young husband and father?    About the little boys?  About the young women?       What should we care?   What can we do, anyway?

john's cross do you know 60   What does all this have to do with that red and blue cross?

Well, lots, actually.      And it has a lot to do with what you think about the separation of this life from the next;  of the material world from the spiritual world,  and the knowledge that there is no separation . . . .    Whether this knowledge comes from from the advances in quantum physics  or from religious writing,  or  the experience of Catholic teaching  —  the spiritual world pervades and co-exists with the seeable, material world.

And our duty to God is co-extistent with our duty to our fellow-man.

This post is not getting written as I thought it would, so I’m going to have to do a Part Two so it doesn’t get too long. . . .

THE CREEPING MOVEMENT: A PUSH-BACK

September 20, 2016

(I don’t mean “a creepy movement,”   just that it’s creeping right along, as a relentless, unseen mold might do.)

I made reference in the last post about how the “movement”  of islamic dominance is spreading all over the West.   It’s a movement, a stealth movement, that keeps creeping into the cracks and crevices of the sleeping Western world.     Stealth –  not because they’re being stealthy,  but because the West is being deliberately obtuse.

More “umbrella people” —

shariah-uk

  •   O Britain:   land of Queen Boudica;   land of Camelot and King Arthur;   land of St Bede and Landisfarne;    Queen Elthedraeda;   land of the Angles and the Saxons and the Danes and Jutes and Normans;   King Edward;  William the Conqueror;  St.  Thomas a Becket;  St. Thomas More;   the sturdy peasants of the Northern Uprising;    land of Westminster Abbey;  land of the British Museum and the Royal Societies;  Sir William Drake, et al.;   Christopher Wren;   Admiral Nelson;   Jane Austin;    Dickens;    . . . .

. . . . the land of “We shall!”  –

. . . . Winston Churchill. . . .   “We shall not flag or fail.”

We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France,
we shall fight on the seas and oceans,
we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be,
we shall fight on the beaches,
we shall fight on the landing grounds,
we shall fight in the fields and in the streets,
we shall fight in the hills;
we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.”

Today,  the “umbrella people”  in England –

shariah-will

“Never forget.”     “Never forget.”     “Never forget.”

Never forget who you are.

It’s not just England.    German television ads are running right now,  “suggesting”  to young German women that they might be safer if they wear burkas, or head scarves.  And a pretty young German model shows you how attractive they can be.

Because . .  .  the Germans know they have a “creeping”  problem:

is-a-shariah-police

The northern European countries have also suggested the purchasing of running shoes,  sneakers,  trainers,  so that the young ladies might be able to outrun their attackers.

Swedish young lady victims were given some advice recently too:

sweden-warning-poster

So get a male relative to escort you out of your homes.  Or just stay home!

The Canadians have a different solution.   Just make them part of your police department.

rcmp-in-burkas-really

Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

America is not resisting this growing, creeping influence.     Recently,  at the Democrat National Convention we were lectured by a Shariah advocate that we’d better act nice and behave:

subject-to-shariah

 

I hope Americans still know who this man is.   Mr. Khan was described by our Democrat-Progressive-Socialists (who want to win the election)   as a “Gold Star Father.”  He did indeed lose a son in the fighting in the Middle East, a place where  many young islamic Americans have received their training in radical islamic jihad techniques.    

What the entertainment-news media hid from the public is that this man was practicing  taqiyya –  deliberate and permitted lying to trick the enemy into non-resistance.   His main occupation is promoting Sharia in the United States,  Sharia to dominate the U.S.  Constitution. 

Yes, his son died.     But he, himself,  the man himself,  is not his son.     His son died fighting in the American Army – the father is fighting against America –  and we were supposed to shut up and honor him.   His anti-American writings and speeches mute our sympathies.

There is another “creeping” movement,  growing at least in Europe.   The people are rising up and resisting the policies of their rulers who are using radical islamists as a tool to maintain social and civil disruption,  for which they, the Rulers, have a ‘solution.”

socialist-besser

 

Germany.  It is there that Nazism  (National-Socialism) and  Global-Socialism  is being rejected, little by little.   Angela Merkel is    gone  defeated in an election. 

I saw a short news video from Turkey today which showed Turkish people rising up against the invading radical islamists, a viglante group “running them out of town,” so to speak.

A grass roots uprising.         Their own Dodge City.

If it can be done, over there,  maybe . . .  here.

salute

 

. *    Please let love for your own country move you today.  Perhaps we can learn from this example of English love for England:

This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,–
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.
William Shakespeare, “King Richard II”, Act 2 scene 1
Greatest English dramatist & poet (1564 – 1616)  

Every nation can look back with pride to some equally inspiring literature.    Do not expect government schools to find it for you.

 

 

BLOODY FUNNY – BLOODY ODD

September 20, 2016

I don’t think I’m swearing in that title.      I don’t usually.

But I  really am going to talk about blood and bloody stuff tonight –  so please don’t read if you need to stay comfortable . . .   and uninformed.

Good-bye:

teardrop-green

 

So first a couple attempts at humor.  One guy created  this chart to make his point,  that the Western World has changed, advanced,  corrected its faults, and become better throughout time.

comparison-islam-thru-history

And then there’s this bit of humor . . . showing how difficult it is to understand a culture so different from our own:

sam-umbrellas

I mean no ill-will, and this is actually rather self-mocking,  self-deprecating humor.

Except –  it’s not so funny for the women who have to live like that.   Recently some women were allowed to be nurses and work at a hospital:

sam-nurse-cover

They were allowed to be nurses as long as they covered up everything but their hands,  and they had to prove that they weren’t wearing nail polish.   That’s why the ladies’  hands are being held up and outward.   So the men can inspect them.

See a similarity between the two photos?   When does “humor”  lose its funny-ness?

Deliberate Misdirection:

We get into serious territory.   If you looked into the issues behind this weekend’s “news” stories,   you may have discovered more serious information about the situation that is developing rapidly in the United States.  But if you heard about the he said-she said “drama”  about who said it was a “b*  om * b”   (they both did)  but if he said it, he was being “irresponsible and reckless”  and when she said it,  she was being “steady.”

Remember hearing that?    That was the entertainment-news media misdirecting our attention – away from any serious analysis of the problem.    Ha ha.    Stay comfortably funny.

We were also told that the timing of these latest attacks is very serious because the UN in New York will be hosting its periodic meeting of the General Assembly.

Where the Global-Socialist Rulers of the world plan their plots.    And assessing their use of their latest  cultural manipulation tool:   let’s call them “refugees,”  so nice people will be fooled.

Inside the UN  building:

un-prayers

The Barack Hussein person in the United States just celebrated Eid al-Adha – in the White House, with a nice, big dinner  (at our expense).     I hope the entertainment-news media explained what the “celebration”  is all about.

Because they celebrated it in a huge American baseball stadium on the other side of our country:

american-ball-stadium

This is the “bloody” part of the title of this post.   Because after the prayers and ceremonies were over,  they began to sacrifice animals there,  according to reports,  according to custom.  

Because that’s what is done this time of the year:

sac-animals-280

(I’ve kept the pictures small.   They’re really quite  overwhelming.   The Daily Mail from the UK gets the credit for these photos, taken in various countries.)

Animals are sacrificed “in honor of”  Abraham’s near-sacrifice of  his son.    

Now,  Christianity is all about the sacrifice of Jesus,  the Christ,   the Son of God,  which broke the power of sin over us.   All the sacrifices that were spoken of (and performed) in the Old Testament pointed to Christ’s one-time holy and efficacious self-sacrifice.  But Moslems do not believe that Christ died on the Cross, so . . . . 

Streets run with blood.   And this time,  this year,  in one large islamic city,   it rained –  washing so much blood away that the streets turned into red rivers.

rivers-of-blood

So from the humorous “umbrella people,”  to the odd coverings on nurses,   to the march of Islam everywhere,   in every continent,  in every government, even directing the world’s  “government,”   we go from humorous to serious,  because the “march” is really happening.   

There is a serious situation developing right now, as we saw during the knifings and explosions and shooting of policemen in our country this past weekend.

The “situation”  is called  dhimmitude.

Better look that up.    You need knowledge in order to make goo ddecisions,   but  I’m not “sanguine”  about the knowledge of my fellow-countrymen.

And pardon the pun.

MASSAGED MESSAGES

September 19, 2016

(I’ve been sleepless for a long time and I’m grumpy. I want information from the News,  not an Agenda.)
Look only where they show you . . .

telescope alone.jpg

That is,  look only  where the entertainment-news media point your attention, a small circle through the wrong end of the telescope.   Their choice.

Television system in The Spruce Tunnel almost all fixed now,  just in time for big news,  and it looks like another Sitting-Duck Zone suffered  knife-attacks this past weekend,  with no one able to defend themselves or stop the attacker from going on to other victims.       Nine people stabbed.

 This feels personal;  my parents and sisters lived in this Minnesota city for a few years.

sitting-duck-zone
Fortunately for the shoppers there came an off-duty policeman who still had his gun with him.     And that was followed by the bombs and  IEDs in New Jersey and New York on Sunday.   

The entertainment-news media massages our brains a little.

Our Rulers are so sure that we believe their every word  that they think if they don’t say “bad words”  like terrorist,  terrorist connection,  ISIS,   bombing,  or refugee communities  ,  etc.  then we won’t think the danger comes from from   terrorist,   terrorist connections,   ISIS,   bombing,  or refugee communities.
 
Why not?  Because the politicians who want to be re-elected or re-re-elected have told us that we are winning/have won the war on terrorism.    

See?  They said it,   we’re going to think it’s true.

According to the Global-Socialist Agenda,  we must believe that the  “refugee-warriors”  preach peace and want   to be Americans   and not America itself.  

It says “peace” in their book!

 ppreaching-peace

ISIS puts out a bulletin:  “Attack where they live.”    And ISIS acknowledge these “warriors of Allah.”    And as one television personality said this morning:   “Politicians can say we’re winning the war in the MIddle East, because they’ve brought the war over here.”

So welcome these refugees.

welcome-them-the-they-wont

One headline reads:       “100,000 Somalis admitted to the US  since 911.”
The next headline says:      “Obama  silent on this weekend’s bombings.”    ( That would be the Barack Hussein person in this country.)

Makes sense.
Also heard on radio news overnight:      “These are Obama’s people.”   (Somalis, Syrians,  and Afghanis)

The Poor Sick Woman running for election talks briefly about the bombings in New York.  CNN shows the video but edits out her word  “bombing.”       They  initially  “massaged”  her short video  although,  after some push-back,    they’ve put it back in but go on commenting as though that word weren’t there.

Why did they do that?    So   they’re free to attack Trump for being right on top of things and talking about the bombings.   Not “who”  placed the bomb in Chelsea,  but  just what the average American citizen saw with their own eyes.   Trump doesn’t speak like a politician.   He speaks like the average American.

Which,  since we’re the Deplorables,   we should just keep quiet and quit talking.

“See something, say something?”  My foot!    You’re only supposed to say what they tell you that you saw.   

“Political Correctness kills.”   

This is an election of the American nation versus the Global-Socialist Agenda.

MAYBE A TRIVIAL POST. OR NOT.

September 15, 2016

I can’t decide.   It’s late and I’m exhausted and I have a really busy day coming up tomorrow.  I feel like writing a small,  trivial, sentimental little posting tonight.   But maybe I might make a  point.

If I don’t make a point, I’m sleeping.

Here’s a sweet little photo:

baby-9-mos-old-now

Daddy got to hold the tiny little feet of his baby boy shortly after he was born.  Very prematurely.    My grandson,  Cooper,  was born prematurely too, though not this tiny.

Perfect little foot with all its toes.    Sometimes I wear a little pin of tiny feet, little perfect tiny gold feet,  to remind us of all our littlest brothers and sisters who are waiting to be born.   Cooper is 5 years old now.   This little baby in the photo is 9 months old now.

Sometimes we’re not so loving towards our littlest ones.    Our littlest ones can’t help being so tiny.      Murder is murder no matter how small the human being is.

Here is another  little one,   two years old:

burned-aiive

I wish I could hold him and comfort him.   He looks so scared.   He looks so scared and helpless.

The Islamists who were handling him burned him alive shortly after this photo was taken   

His little face haunts me.   May God comfort him now.

I didn’t know where I’m  going with this posting.    Maybe back to the Middle East because I have another photo somewhere to show you.     It would take too long to find that photo,  but it would be of a young, happy, holy priest in a long black cassock – on a trampoline with a bunch of kids.   I have another photo of him giving a “Horsey-Back ride to a little child who was happy and giggling as they galloped around.

We were at a party that day,  given for this young priest in the long black cassock. *    I gave him a little book for a present:  The Imitation of Christ,  the book that has been read with great profit by uncountable numbers of men and women.   It’s a heart-to-heart talk,  Jesus and you.  How to live like Christ and be holy like Him.

I don’t know if the young priest ever read my book,  but all who know him know he has become very holy,  totally focused on Christ and His Church and all of the people he knows.    Dedicated and holy for us.   He is admired and loved.

And he has just volunteered to go to Iraq to help the Christians in danger there.   Like that little boy in the photo, and his family.

A plea I read recently from a priest or bishop over there:  “For Christ’s sake,  you in America,  help us!  Send help or there will not be any more Christians left!”

A historical note:   Christianity first thrived and grew in the Middle East and in Northern Africa:    Damascus,   Antioch,  Caeserea,  Cappodocia,    Joppa,  Petra,   Alexandria,  Edessa,  Smyrna . . .   so many places.    So many wise men born out of these areas.

So many  Christian lives snuffed out now.

Sure, we accept “refugees” from this area,  but the Barack Hussein person was raised a Sunni Muslim.     Of all the refugees America he has received recently,   0.04% are Christian. I’ve read other slightly different numbers,  but Christians are always less than 1%.

Too late for the scared  little boy in the photo.

If you’d like to pray specifically for his soul,  for his courage,  for his holiness,  for his aid,   his name is Father Gawronsky.    I hope you never read his name in the newspapers.

 

GOOD AND EVIL UP ABOVE

September 11, 2016

Sept. 11, 2016   –

good-versus-evil-450

As I left church this morning I looked up.

Great evil:   Those “trails”  are raining down on us  boron,  barium,  cadmium,  assorted radioactive isotopes, desiccated red blood cells,  and above all,  great quantities of aluminum.     Among other occasional substances.

Most of these are neurotoxins, causing neurological deficits, dementia,  sterility, and increasing immune-system weaknesses.       The above-named substances have been found in human hair samples,  bone marrow,  spinal fluid in  “inexplicable”  quantities, and all on the rise.

Whatever explanation our Rulers give us,  the fact remains that this is destroying human, animal, and plant life on earth.     Since about 1995.

I call that evil.

In front of that, however,  in the photo, pointing upwards,  is a great good.      In our church,  the Son of God actually becomes present on our altars.     Since about, oh,  33 A.D.

I call that a great good.

Who wins?

“Heaven and Earth shall pass away,  but my word will never pass away.”   (Jesus.  About 32-33 A.D.)

 

 

 

 

CAISSONS ROLLING THROUGH TIME

September 10, 2016

(And they’re rolling right down to us.)

cannon-ball

How far could you throw a   1,200- pound solid iron ball?    (I have trouble with a 12-pound bowling ball!)    If you had a cannon,  how far could you make it go?

How big would your cannon have to be if you wanted to make that 1,200-pound cannonball travel one MILE?       (Try just walking a mile!)

Well, the Islamic Turks had it all figured out.    And they needed 60 oxen and 700 men just to pull the huge cannon  into place!       Then,  after they fired it,  it took seven hours to reload!

But with the use of this cannon,  the gigantic  1,000 year-old super-walled city of Constantinople . . . fell.   It was the end of Christendom in the East.   It was a huge and  unexpected shock to the Western world.    1453 A.D.

cannon

What was happening in Western Christendom that they wouldn’t come to the aid of Constantinople?

Read today’s headlines:    King would not align with kings,  leaders quarreled with other leaders,   nobody had “extra” money that they would spend on defense,  the emphasis was on “arts and entertainment,”   quality of life,   and the new-found emphasis on humanism in service of Man;    and – as always – there was a traitor from the West;  “Urban”  I think his name was.   He was the one who taught the Turks how to build this giant cannon,  and he stayed with them,  “training” them until they were proficient — against Constantinople, and ultimately the West.

fpurth

“And the caissons go rolling along….”         I’m still surprised at how moved I was during the Fourth of July celebration along the Hudson River last summer.   So big a crowd,  all proud to be celebrating America; and  so many in the crowd sang along with all the songs representing our Armed Forces….   And including the Army’s:  “Over hill, over dale, we have hit the dusty trail,   And those — ”      I was a little mystified when I didn’t hear them sing about “those caissons.”    It was:  “And those soldiers keep marching along.”

NOT the caissons rolling!?      I wondered why.    It troubled me.     Was this a subtle attack from the Modernists?      Caissons, after all,  are those wagons which carry along ammunition for the artillery used by the soldiers.     Is it not “nice” to refer to ammunition anymore?   Or did someone think that “people”  wouldn’t know what a caisson is?    I didn’t know – not when I first heard the song.  I grew up with “The Halls of Montezuma”  in my house, so I didn’t pay attention to those “caissons”  until I was older.      But  my Dad knew what a caisson is.  My teachers knew.  It was in our textbooks.  Our dictionaries.      We children were not  expected to be intellectually “soft.”     And stupid.

Don’t change the word “caisson”!   Because we have to know that they are STILL “rolling along. ”       

The “Turks”  still have “cannons” aimed at us,  now more than ever, only they aren’t shooting solid balls, they’re shooting case balls, also known as shells,  which means they’re hollowed out and filled with explosives.   And today we call them  missiles;  bombs on missiles.  Iran’s nuclear weapon program got our green light.

And we learned this past week that the Barack Hussein person in the U.S.  has facilitated the paying out of 33.6 BILLION dollars to Iran. *    Gold bullion and cash money.   Iranians are  not “Turks,”  but taking aim at us just the same.

Military vehicles on wheels and accompanying armament?     In 2015 we paid out to Iraq about $600,000,000 for  humvees and heavy-duty items of warfare.    And then —

—  then! —  we “lost” 2,300 humvees.     Our enemies “took them”   when  Mosul was conquered.    Now there are 2,300 humvees not protecting our soldiers,   but in enemy hands,  being used right now, against our soldiers,   in all kinds of inventive ways.    (Fill them with explosives and drive them into people. . . .)

So,  those “caissons”  are still rolling along,   pointed at us,  paid for by us,   and there is still a faction of westerners who are aiding and abetting the enemy,  just as in 1453.

Constantinople was defenseless against this huge cannon and the onslaught of very determined Muslims.

We look for our spiritual, moral, and physical defenses.

bar-cross-in-middle

 

 

. *  One of the sources for the secret payments . . .  

By the way, is there a meaning in the number “33” ?   (For those who recognize that number.)     George Soros has recently public stated what we all knew,  that the Global Governance of us (tyranny)  cannot take full effect until the two big obstacles are brought down:   the idea of national sovereignty  (epitomized best in the Constitution of the United States);   and the neutralization   (neutering)   of the Catholic Church.

Soros represents the Enemy.   Soros is an arm of the Enemy.    Keep your eye on his ubiquitous influence in the United States.

Oh,  okay.  If you want.    Maybe another source about those humvees.

It’s possible the entertainment-news media in the U.S.  in not talking about this.

MILWAUKEE THUGS HAVE ONE THING RIGHT

August 15, 2016

What does Milwaukee, Wisconsin, have to do with Elvis Presley?

I suppose we’ve all heard the words coming out of the Milwaukee thugs:

S SPEAKER

Quote:   “Dey got all the money and, like, dey don’t give us none!”

(Like, the obvious thing would be to investigate this young man’s schoolteachers.   And probably fire them.)   *

Black rage is all the rage.    Rage is all the rage.    Violent overthrow of governments is all the rage.     Violent overthrow of Western culture is all the rage . . .    but let’s stick here to the United States.

Because which ever  young man said the above quote “Dey got all the money . . .” is absolutely correct in that.   Analysis after analysis shows that the middle class is being made to shrink in every Western country,  from Australia to Europe to America and Canada.  The middle class goes to work and earns salaries; and with their earned money they either make purchases and/or investments so that inventors and entrepreneurs and businesses can grow, giving the country more wealth and more material goods and more opportunity.      But with increasing difficulty.

Where did all their money go?     Remember the socialist/progressive motto from the Alinksy-ites?     “Top down,  bottom up — and squeeze out the middle!”    They are experts at doing this.   Bring the successful business owners down;    promote costly  unrest among the bottom class;  and then where does the money go that gets squeezed out of the middle class?

S FUNDING

Even foreign newspapers are reporting on this.   The wealth of the middle class goes to the super uber elite who does the bidding of our Rulers.    George Soros  (not his real name) — who is a super elite, does the bidding of the Ruling Elite, channeling funds into various revolutionary tools like Black Rage, Black Power, Black Live Matter, the New Black Panthers.

(Who do you think will receive the so-called Carbon Tax money?)

The ruling Elite get what they pay for.

S POWER

$33,000,000 is a vast sum of money, and the money is needed to promote these huge violent outbursts.     In Milwaukee,  a Black policeman shot a Black man who had a gun and refused to put it down,  and then ran off with the gun.   He died from that gunshot wound.    This is reason enough to announce that White people will be hunted down and attacked and killed and their property damaged.

So the Milwaukee thug ** got it right.   Soros and his kind DO have our money.  And it’s being used for this:

S STORE

 

Oh, yeah —  What does Milwaukee, Wisconsin, have to do with Elvis Presley?

This is the week for big celebrations of the life of Elvis Presley in his Graceland mansion in Tennessee.  I’m not much of an Elvis fan.  Even as a teenager I recognized his role in breaking down moral values and cultural safeguards.      But he has a great voice.    An amazing amount of people of all ages visit his home every year in mid-August.

Black Lives Matter,  the New Black Panthers, etc.   plan a visit to Graceland too.  This group of experienced riot thugs plan to – in their words –  “Shut down Graceland.”  ***

The name of this group?

Coalition of Concerned Citizens

They shouldn’t  be concerned.     They’ll get their transportation money and attention and sympathy and “fame.”

My friends and readers from other countries should know:    Ordinary American citizens are under attack.   We are not racist.  You’d have trouble finding racists among ordinary American citizens.    But we are under attack BY the racists.   

Bar wavy

 

.*   Definitely this young man’s teachers should be held accountable, as well as the school  SYSTEM  that allowed him to leave school being uneducated, inarticulate,  and so vulnerable to propaganda that divides races . . .

But so also should we examine the media which feeds this racist violence into these young men.

And so also are the churches at fault for not teaching,  demonstrating, and requiring good moral behavior.

And so also should the incompetent parents be looked at a because they deprived their children of  the values of Western culture.     Perhaps the parents need to be helped too –  you cannot give what you do not have.    

We have a complex cultural problem here, and it would take the Will of the People and determined hard work to restore American values among large groups of “Americans.”

 

.**    Thug:  (definition)    Someone who is violent, especially a criminal.     The Black man who was shot in Milwaukee by the Black police officer was a criminal known to the police, and he had a long “rap sheet”  of violent crimes on his record.

WHAT’S WRONG WITH THE CHURCH!

August 14, 2016

Well, it’s Sunday, so “church” is on my mind.    And I’ll start with a title from the great writer GK Chesterton,  (What Wrong With the World), and tweak it a little,  but I promise not to show the genius, perspicacity, and humor of Chesterton.   I’m just as passionate,  but not quite as talented!

sleepy 150

I began my Sunday morning struggling to come awake in time, as usual.   (I don’t “do”  mornings.)   To wake myself up,  I read a little of the entertainment-news headlines and saw the typical murder and mayhem,   immorality, and confused thinking.    A world unable to reason clearly and to choose the right thing.        And Christians who seem weak in the face of  growing tyranny, crime, immorality, and evil.      Why?   What happened?

The Church offers a huge, almost endless treasure of logic, philosophy, science, reason,  history,  examples of good people, and instruction in civic, social, and  limitless power for holy living for  anyone who wants it.    Quicumque!

We used to know this.

(Before):

I was a history major in the university I attended;  I’ve been  studying secular history,  sacred history,  Church history,  and Bible history for many, many decades.   And I witnessed what has happened to the Roman Catholic Church.

It’s this:    Words matter.  And through words come meaning and power as well as information and, influence, and inspiration.    What is relevant and powerful is lasting, and that’s why we can say we have “classics” in literature.

Such classics are timeless because they speak to the common,  higher things in mankind.  Hindus worship in classical Sanskrit.   Muslims worship in classical Arabic.   Christians worship in classical Latin –  to name a few traditions.      The classical words don’t change,  they won’t change, and so the meaning will not change either,  because the meaning is respected and “timeless.”

The Mass of the Church is made of words and gestures which bring us to a high point of communication (prayer)  with God  and an intimate spiritual union with Him, one on One, so to speak.     The beginnings of the Mass can be seen way back in New Testament times, as evidenced by the earliest Christian use of the catacombs, mid first century, A.D.

The Mass kept the early Christians in constant and very real contact with God which strengthened them through persecutions and heresies.

cat chaliceI know if we were to go back to those times and peek into the catacombs, we would see and hear things that are very familiar to us:     prayers, words,  gestures, procedures.     The Vessels used by these early Christians were made of the finest metals, carefully crafted for the purpose which they would serve.   This is a “museum quality”  chalice from the 3rd century.

Very little was changed or added through the succeeding centuries, and we know this from the writings of the people who lived at these times.   The Mass differed a little from location to location,  but by the time of (Pope) St. Gregory the Great, 6th century,  the Mass was pretty well set in its present day form.  Several centuries later,  again there were “accretions” particular to specific locations.   Pope Pius V  decreed in the 16th century that anything that was added “in the last 200 years”  should no longer be used – it was too “new”!      No sudden changes!      Never any sudden changes.

 

mass priest to God

And so we have a powerful, time-proven Mass that is a conduit for spiritual strength because it makes present for us, in our time,   the One-Time offering of Christ, as Sacrifice,   to God, for our peace and salvation.

The words of the Mass are the priest’s words, not ours.  That’s the function of a priest:  to be involved in sacrifice, or in this case,  the Sacrifice.   Only one sacrifice,  but made present to us each time.    (The idea came from Christ Himself who told us “This is my Body . . . )

(“Is”   Let’s not get into President Clinton’s vocabulary lesson.)

So what happened?

(After):

Where we used to bring ourselves and our praise and thanksgiving to God-Most-High  in a solemn ceremony that acknowledges our sin as well as our Redemption through Christ’s offering of Himself —

Mass to God

 

—   we now  cheerily “entertain” each other —

Mass strumming

According to Pope Benedict,   the Mass was scrapped in about the mid-20th century and a whole new set of words were written to be put into the place of the Mass.   Pope Benedict said the new Mass-words were created “out of whole cloth” –  meaning they started from scratch with new ideas,  they didn’t just make “improvements”  or “edits.”

Secondly,  Pope Benedict’s assessment of the finished product was that it trivialized the Mass,   and  he also used an Italian word for banal –  the newly-written Mass-words banalized  the Catholic Mass.   Banal?    That means made it common and stupid!

It also made the Mass weak.   I’ve talked before about the words of all the rites being rewritten, and how exorcists are having a hard time of it nowadays because the original words of exorcism, with all their power,  had been rewritten to the point of  weakness.  that would be weakness before Evil Powers.

Weakness.    Even if you have good “readings”  and good sermons and good, talented people talking and singing to you —

Mass priest to peole

— the newly-written Mass  just simply obscures what a genuine Mass is all about.

What’s Wrong With the World?

What’s wrong with the Church?

The people of the  Church,  the common,  everyday people have been trained to accept unquestioningly the new, weaker Mass – as though it were a good replacement.    The result is a weaker spiritual life,  confusion in the face of opposition,   an inability to stand up for what is right.      So many  have discarded the  wisdom and  the vital knowledge that the Church has to offer us.        We are more vulnerable in the face of rising political tyranny.

Sheeesh!  If so many hadn’t accepted this substitute,  we’d have a safer, saner world,  strengthened by true spiritual Power!

THE EXCITING WORLD OF JASON BOURNE

August 10, 2016

I love the Bourne movies and books.

jb

This last movie, issued this summer,  was a good one.  It lived up to the whole Jason Bourne   conundrum.   It had high speed chases, rogue action,  Skynet type surveillance,  spying, demonstrations of extraordinary physical training,  stolen identities . . . on and on with  all the elements you need to keep you at the edge of your seat . . . mysterious murders and computer hacking. . . .

And interestingly enough,  curiously,  many elements that we see happening around us today.   I am astonished, actually.

Today  the News reports that  a hacker was challenged to break into  our electronic voting system.   Actually it took Nicki Parsons (in the movie)  longer to hack into the   ultra-secure national security agency’s  headquarters–  the CIA? —   than it took this  hacker to get into our electronic voting system.     It took him 7 minutes.    Many computer experts (and hackers)  ridicule the whole idea of a “secure”  electronic vote count.     Electronic voting -anywhere – is eminently hackable and easily manipulated.      It can even be done from a satellite, according to one recent report.

Remember the Soviet maxim:  “It’s not how many votes are cast,  it’s who counts the votes.”

Know who this is?   –

STRANGE MAN IN TRUM TWER

Well, he’s a good looking man.   You can Search for his name and photo if you want a better picture  but I wanted to focus on the words:    An armed man who  was caught inside Trump Towers, with a semi-automatic handgun fitted with a silencer “has been identified as Barry Lee Bush, a former Newark NJ FBI agent WHO HAS BEEN DEAD SINCE 2007.”

Here’s a plot  worthy of a Jason Bourne movie!      It’s unlikely this silencer was legal  (who was he hunting in Trump Towers?)      But more interesting:   the handgun was found to be manufactured WITHOUT   serial numbers.

(Certainly not bought through some gun show “loophole.”)

How about a mysterious murder, which will probably conveniently remain “unsolved”? One month ago a young man working for the Democrats was found shot to death  on the sidewalks of Wash.  D.C.       The media was told to call this a robbery.

Problem is:  no one “robbed” him of his wallet or of his cell phone or money.      The murderer was obviously not interested in robbing him.  And no other stray “street person”  who saw the body before the police arrived.

A connected problem  :   The head of Wikileaks spoke publicly of the source of many emails given to them recently from someone working for the Democrats, a young man.   Will he identify the young man’s name?   Nope –  just know that “we and our sources faces serious threats all the time. . . .”

Everyone knows you don’t go against   TPTB.  There are a few more deaths associated with the Democrats this summer.  Have you heard about the attorney hired by  Bernie Sanders to file a lawsuit against the DNC and its (former) female head?    Well, never mind.  He’s dead now too.  “No cause of death has been released.”      But he was found dead in his own home, after having spent hours presumably  “alone.”    August 2, 2016.  Shawn Lucas.   Message delivered, a la the enemies of  Bourne.

In the Jason Bourne movies there seems to be an abundance of “bad guys”  committing criminal mayhem — and they don’t seem to be caught by the local police but they often appear later on in the movie.    I’m not going to get specific,  though I have plenty of news articles to share.   You can find them.    There are over 300 villages,  cities, and counties in the United States that have been declared Sanctuary Cities.   These are places where some of the most violent criminals are “dumped” –  over and over again.     There is enough crime in some places to actually reflect a Jason Bourne movie.

I love action movies.   I love it when the “hero” tries to right wrongs,  even while going off the grid,  going rogue,  doing what has to be done.     It’s an  “exciting world.”

But that’s where that action belongs,  on the Silver Screen.  A civilized society should not reflect a Jason Bourne movie.

It’s going to be a   difficult task to rebuild a “civil”  society but a very, very serious one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE “CHOICE” – 1200 YEARS AGO

August 10, 2016

(From a book I am reading):*

Left alone in the fens:

FENS 2

The “boy” was 14 years old and was left alone for days,  with only his dog for companionship.     Today we would call that “child abandonment;  but then it was called  relying on the watchfulness of a  young man of 14 years.   He was strong and good,  watchful and smart.

Good;  of good and trustworthy character.

He was left alone for a  few days by his father and a companion to take care of their small house, a hut really,   in the middle of the lonely fens of  …  England.

FENS

 

Fens.    We don’t really think about “fens”  in America.  Not so that we’d be familiar with them.  I’m sure a physical geographer could identify fens,  perhaps in South Carolina where the Swamp Fox practiced guerilla warfare against the British in the Revolution — 240 hundred years ago —  but mostly we are a nation of dryer lands:  prairie, plains,  deserts,  high plateaus, dryer mountain ranges, forests, and valleys.

Fens hut

The boy was left waiting on a small island of dryer land in the midst of a swampy, marshy area, where his little home had been  built.   He was well-fed by an abundance of fish and fowl.   His portion of dry land  was connected to other pieces of dry land,  pathways, really between the wetlands,  small ponds and rivers, which provided transportation and food — and danger.

The boy’s big hound protected him from the wolves, which were a very real threat, even though his people, the Saxons, had pretty successfully gotten rid of most of these terrifying predators.    But in addition to wild animals, there was the ever present threat of the Danes.

The Danes had arrived a few generations ago and had conquered many areas of F see enemy and readyBritain.   They were the greatest enemy, the greatest present threat to those tribes who were  native  to Britain – even to the Britons themselves.   The Danes were rough and violent conquerors, and they were pagans.  Their aim was to  own Britain, to rule the land, to  enslave the more useful of the people they conquered, and to eradicate Christianity.

And they were pretty much succeeding when this little book opens.  The father and uncle eventually come home,  but the Danes were on their way.  Then all three are off to join other groups of fighting men  in  hopes that they can turn back the onslaught of the Danes.

F Danes warriros

In the first battle, they fight these Danish Vikings well and push them back  a little.

F 14 alongside  The fourteen year old fights valiantly alongside his father, but his strong young body is not quite strong enough for the big warriors he must fight off;  he is too young, too small yet.  Too many times the father had to shield the boy’s body from the strong arm of a seasoned  Danish warrior.

In another battle,    a more desperate one,  the father knows that he will likely die, and he gives orders for his son to hold back along the far edges of the battlefield,  and he gives order to his friend to go to his son if he, the father, should fall in battle.   To go to his son and take him to the king.

F you go away

Both son and friend do not want to leave the man’s side,  but he is the father,  and there is no thought of disobeying his word.   The father dies,  the friend saves and guards the son;  the father’s name lives on.

The young man, Edmond,  becomes   friend and companion to King Alfred of the Saxons and fights faithfully at his side.  And the story goes on . . .  .the Danes are defeated,  and England becomes part of history, part of our world.

F sorrowfully rode away

Now here we are.      Many hundreds of years later.    Our lands are being invaded.  As the Danes conquered place after place in Britain,  so our lands,  Europe and America and Canada,  are being cleverly and efficiently invaded – just not by Danes this time,  and not only by machete, knives, guns, and explosive devices.

I look for the  intelligence to define the enemy.    I look for leadership to unite us in the cause of self-preservation.    I look for “soldiers” who are strong enough and smart enough to fight off the invading forces.    I look for men of good character that can be relied upon to defend us.

There are many ways to fight,  but it is a soldier’s fighting spirit that we need.

It’s a spirit that makes us think that we, ourselves, are worth preserving.

“THESE RUGGED TIMES”

August 8, 2016

(Oh, my;  has it been a week?   A very dismaying week;  fruitful for my mind,  but not for my writing. )

This photo doesn’t match “the Times.”

BACK YARD

So many dire and dismaying news stories this week, all wrapped in a packet of lies  within lies  within lies.   “News” stories are made up;    fabricated as an author would think up an interesting or controversial story-line, and then presented as though true;    and then argued about, debated about,  and tsk,tsk,tsk –  until  the controversy itself “proves” the lie.

It produces a Turmoil in the mind.     These days are difficult for us;   “rugged times,”  as John Jay wrote a couple hundred years ago.   He wrote about all the “sensations” that intrude into our minds.

He was born two hundred years before I was,  but yet he describes the process as we can perfectly  witness it  today:

“In such Rugged Times as these, other sensations are to be cherished.   Rural scenes, domestic bliss, and the charming group of pleasures found in the Train of Peace — all fly (away) at the approach of war; and are seldom to be found in fields stained with Blood, or in habitations polluted by outrage and desolation.”     (John Jay to Robert Livingston,  as war and revolution approached.)

What is he telling us?     That there are two opposing sets of “sensations”:      Rugged Times versus the Train of Peace.         “Train of Peace” may be an old-fashioned and poetic way of stating it,  but we’re not so stupid that we can’t understand – and deeply feel – what he means by that phrase.

Rural scenes, with all their charm and tranquility.   The photo above is looking out from my back window.

Such scenes provide a “charming group of pleasures . . .”

SAMSUNG

A morning sun ascends onto (the possibility of)  domestic bliss, promising a “Train of Peace.”

SAMSUNG

Morning Sun

John Jay and others eventually wrote that this country is to provide for the Pursuit of Happiness.    This is a state of affairs that allows men to pursue their dreams,  to see the fruit of their labor,   and to rest in a state of confidence and peace,  that if they work hard at a goal,  it may be attainable.

Opposing this is a tyrannical government that decides things for us.  Big Brother.  A  powerful State.   Laws, rules, regulations that put us into submission to the State.    We live by permits and licenses – and by “staying under the radar.”    We must believe their publications.  We agree to be entertained by their “entertainment-news media”   which is the source of the “pollution” that John Jay made reference to.   Facts polluted with  deception and lies.

And if we see behind the outright lies,   when we admit the many “outrages,”    and we witness the “desolation” of our country,   our peace “flies” away at the “approach of war” and our “pleasures” are fleeting indeed.

This “war” that approaches must be fought.   Don’t think of war as  physical altercation with physical weapons.

War is the deliberate opposition of one side to the other.    It means paying attention;  choosing a side;   standing up;  confronting the enemy (if it insists upon being an enemy);   choosing a method of opposition best suited to your abilities;    and getting busy to do the actual fighting.

I fear huffing and puffing and tsk-tsk-tsk-ing will get us nowhere.

Kronos eats his children

 

Lies being told to conceal the identity of an enemy who has declared war against us and to lead us to believe that we somehow deserve the attacks are a kind of mental pollution,  not worthy to be taken seriously.

Lies that are being told to protect the one political candidate and to attack the other political candidate are not really worthy subjects for our entertainment  while we experience the “approach of war.”  (John Jay) .    Lies waste our time.

And the one thing that Time does is . . .  pass.

And we may still have time for these Rugged Times to produce great minds,  great men of truth and of valor.    These Rugged Times may be our awakening  that America is a real concept and that the United States is worth saving .     We may yet learn and understand the wisdom of our Founding Fathers.       We may yet find the strength to do our part with determination.

“These Rugged Times”    are our times too.

 

 

JULY IN AUGUST IN HISTORY

August 2, 2016

No,  this isn’t a hot-summer-weather report.    It’s that “next post”  that I referred to in the last post.

The information starts in the early 17th century.   In the Americas.    Each nation or empire had a king;  each colony was loyal to that king.    And yet . . .  yet  somewhere in the future it was predicted that nations would no longer have kings and queens, or at least a functioning monarchy.

Nations would be “republics.”   Like Ancient Greece attempted.    Like Ancient Rome tried for a short time.   A form of government that promised so much but left so much open to corruption and failure – and misery for the citizens of the republic.

And worse.   There were more predictions.    In the future,  three hundred years into the future,   religion,  the foundation and strength of every civilized nation,  would be disparaged.  Out of favor.  Rejected.   Mocked.     There would be a great crumbling and corruption of the Church itself.   It seemed insane.   An incomprehensible future.

A great apostasy would occur.    All  the new republics would one day become the enemy of religion.  Their official policy  would be to keep religion out of the public sphere,  to destroy religion.

Parents would stop teaching their children about the Good God and about our salvation.  A great number of evil   “books”   would  flood the streets of the cities,  disrupting society,  degrading manners,   corrupting adults and even children.

The century in which this would occur (begin) would be the 20th century.

These prophecies were written down,  lost, and then rediscovered “at a time when they would be needed,”  which turned out to be the late 19th century —  just  in time to warn people of what was coming, and perhaps to become mobilized, motivated to turn away this disastrous century of the future.

The warning had come from Heaven, and Heaven was not unaware that people remained indifferent to the fate of future generations.  (That would be us.)

And so,  in 1917 — almost too late to stop this disastrous century from developing —  Heaven visited Fatima, Portugal.   Our Lady, the Mother of Christ,  spoke words of warning to three little children — three who had not yet been corrupted.  Three little children who were so innocent and unlettered,  that they did not even know who or what a “Russia” was.

But they did report to those in authority over them that Our Lady has warned that if the world does not repent and turn back to God,   that “Russia”  would spread her errors.

“If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.”

And to prevent that from happening,   the pope along with the bishops of the world,  will have to pick a day in which to consecrate “Russia”  to the Immaculate Heart.

(Catholic stuff –  that just seems to have come true.)

Russia will then convert to the Catholic faith –  and the world will have a period of peace.

Satan, the devil,   fought off this consecration with a period of Diabolical Disorientation.

And now we’re all mixed up.

We call it Political Correctness,  but what lies behind this is Diabolical Disorientation.  We are dizzy and disoriented, just as the Bible says happens to all those who reject God:  “their intellects are darkened.”

So,  right?    Have the prophecies come true?

Here’s another one, closer to our time, but same message.   I had hoped this year to write on the 13th of every month, in remembrance of the six months that the children at Fatima were visited. . . .  I missed July.

On July 13th, 1917,  the children were visited again.   They were told several things, some “secrets,”   but also, suddenly,  the Lady opened up her hands and rays of light came down to the earth and penetrated the earth and revealed such a frightful scene that they all later  reported they were scared half to death.

Hell

A deep, large, and wide hole had appeared,  full of fire, and worst of all it was full of something like lumps of burning coal, black, but on fire,  and in the shape of horrible distorted animal figures . . .  and moving up and down in the currents of the heat were distorted, burning human-like figures,   which were crying out in pain and agony and despair  . . .tormented by the  horrid beastly entities,  but the human souls could not die.

The children could bear to see no more.

But from then on the three young children doubled and tripled their efforts to pray for souls, and to do penance on behalf of those who do not believe in God,  and to plead with God to “lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need.”

So that’s some of what happened on July 13th,  1917.    It verifies the seriousness of the prophecies of the early 16th century, when Our Lady  (Our Lady of Good Success)  came to the Americas,  to warn.

The messages — all the secrets — were especially meant for us to know today.  Because if we don’t know about them or do anything about them,  The Errors of Russia would indeed spread.

What are some of these Errors?

Communism is an atheistic ideology that ultimately denies God’s natural order and natural law, which God inscribed on the hearts of men. Denying God, Communism attaches divinity status to the Party and to the State. As such, Communism transfers all personal responsibility to the Party and totalitarian state. Denying natural law, Communism rejects the basic rights to private property, and monogamous, indissoluble marriage two indispensable pillars of a free society. Dictatorship is not a chance fact in Communism, but the logical and necessary consequence of its ideology. For strategic reasons, Communism may take on different political forms, including apparently democratic ones, and hide behind varied labels. Already in the 1930’s, the Communist Party launched the so-called policy of the extended hand, in which it showed to the outside world a smiling, friendly face . . .”      and today they call themselves Progressives, among other things, and they still wear a friendly face and promise good things  . . . and they control nearly every facet of our everyday lives.

So has this prophecy also come true?

 

THE EXORCISTS’ EXPLANATION

August 2, 2016

(A little of this and that today – but all connected.)

Sometimes a new insight, a bit of wisdom,  an interesting thought comes into your mind; a thought that ties it all together and explains a lot of things.    Sometimes the insight can be shared and understood by many;  sometimes it’s meaningful only to the one single person.

A private kind of insight:

An example of a meaningful insight pertinent to one single person is my recent journey to the land of my birth,  the land of Gitche Gumme.

(See the archives for Gitche Gumme and Hiawatha,  but you can achieve moments like this too.)

Blue 1 cr 400

It was a long journey to the Far Far North, but it was worth it.    I was on a mission; a mission to find meaning . . . and I could find it only by going back to my first experience with planet earth.

Mission accomplished.

Blue 2 400

As I hiked the forests of Hiawatha and climbed up and down the glacial moraines, smelled the intoxicating pines,   walked along the shoreline,   and meditated sitting on ancient, 1.3 billion year old rock bluffs,  some thoughts came to me.    “Mission accomplished,”  but it’s not something I can put into words, easily.  It’s a private insight.

After I came home —  yeah, the shark thing.   I watched enough shark movies that week for it to be a “confessible”  offense.      One day  I shall meet my Maker and have to explain my time use for this  one whole week!

But the sharks were a dodge.  I was dodging lying words,  a freaky face, and the horrible screeching words of a Hound-ess Harridan from Hell.  My other cable channels were a lost cause.    Only the sharks remained.

Why has the world gone this bad?    Why has both my country  and my Church been taken over by “the errors of Russia” * ?   – to use a quaint, though true, early 20th century phrase.  It seemed to accelerate after the mid-20th century.    I experienced the exhilarating blow-your-mind  sort of feeling of “freedom” – which blew everything apart –

Lightning Black Sabbath

– which turned out to be a freedom from Everything.    Which is another word for chaos –  used skilfully by the enemies of the West.

Hell face

Truly Hell listened.

“Drugs, sex, and  (the compelling drumbeat of) rock n roll” –   all open  spiritual gates.   We quested for “another state of consciousness.”    We yearned for a “higher state of consciousness.”     As though humans had never before achieved these states of opening to the evil and demonic  spiritual world.   It is ancient!  Yet the 2oth century thought they had discovered it.

Dark rituals abound now.  Authorities frequently find mutilated, usually headless corpses floating in the Thames River.   I was shocked when I first read about this many years ago. the Italian government has stated their alarm at the rising occult and has plead for exorcists.   The Vatican itself has put out a call for young men to become trained exorcists.  In Africa “witches”  are burned.   Occult-sex rites flourish all over the world, and drive much of the world’s sex slave trade.   .    In the US – and all over Central and South America really –  there are pockets of occult and satanic cultures.    “Satanists” are in the news again this week;  courts say they can now teach after-school “clubs” indoctrinating yet another generation of children.

Innocence of children?   Chastity?    Purity?   Holiness?    Goodness?     All these are OUT, as was predicted in the 1630s.    The children of the 20th century (and somewhat beyond)  will be lost.

The world would be in a state of total diabolical disorientation*, almost as though we, in the world, were hypnotized.

Television Obey HDTV

The “god of the power of the air”  (airwaves?)  will ascend.    Spiritual wickedness in the heavens, in high places,  are our enemies.     (Ephesians 6:12)

And here’s where the various exorcists come in.     However, that Vatican call for more exorcists,  nice try,  but no matter how sincere and hard-working they are,   it will not really help much.    The new exorcists will be innocent and relatively helpless.

And the reason comes from the testimony of the exorcists themselves.   I heard this today.  I’ve heard it several other times.   Consistently:

The New Rites of the Catholic Church, including the Rite of Exorcism,  were created, invented,  thought up, and written “out of a whole new cloth”  (Pope Benedict’s words!).   They do not nearly enough  resemble the power of the words of the original rites, and are therefore,  weaker.    “WEAKER.”     Weaker is the word that the exorcists and the so-called demonic voices use.

We are shooting BB’s  at heavy artillery aimed at us.     gun silly

But it’s fun to be shot at for a while.  Oh, so fun.   (“Shark-fun.”)    I’m guilty too of welcoming some of these demonic shots,  though  I try to say  aware of the spiritual warfare raging all around us;   and I try to fight back.  We do have spiritual help in the form of direct contact with God,  the indwelling of God’s Spirit,  the angels and saints around us – and the battle waged by the chief general in command of the host of heavenly beings,  St. Michael.

These are powerful living intelligent  forces aware of our plight.

It’s going to be a long war, and the outcome is

The public insight:

The exorcists speak.    It would help if we bowed our heads to this one insight from the exorcists who have spoken and who have reported to us the big weakness in our armor – the weak, impoverished modern language of dumbed-down rites.      (Face it: in  the New Version of the Church is different from the original version

We actually have been warned about this.*

RED-GREEN for Father Hamel

July 26, 2016

Here is Father Jacques Hamel,  (martyr)   Rouen, Normandy,  France:

Father Hamel

Well, he doesn’t look like that any longer.   R.I.P.

(Nous sommes France!)

Bar wavy

Today is a day for anger.   For me.    Good causes for ranting.   Days like today I want to be a Man and put on my Viking armor, pick up my Battle Axe, and DEFEND my family, my clan, my tribe – because no one else seems to be doing so.

The Swedish blood in my veins boils.  Not just because the “Chicago”  of Europe is  now Malmö, Sweden!    Rape and murder capital of Europe.      Not just because Swedish girls are told to protect themselves by wearing bracelets that tell their attackers-from-foreign-lands to   “Be Nice.”

And not just because Swedish girls are now being told maybe they should wear a burka, when going out.  Wear a head scarf if you don’t want to be attacked.   In your own land!    Right in front of the noses of the men and leaders whom their Viking forefathers would be ashamed of.

Pahhhh!      These Swedish men would be afraid of their own Battle-Axe!   And that goes for all the liberal Swedish females who are trying to be  men-leaders.

A whole violent political movement has declared war on the Western World,  Europe and North America, specifically.     They have declared it many, many years ago.    And since there has been NO response from the Western World,   they have had to repeat their declarations of war many times – and they have had to demonstrate their declaration of war, over and over again.

No, they don’t think we’re deaf.     They think  we’re are weak and effeminate.   We cannot pick up the challenge.      We are theirs for the taking.    And nearly every day we hear of their “Taking”  — with knives, machetes,  bombs,   and guns of all kinds.

Not clean kills either.    I’ve told you before it’s very “messy”  to slice through a  throat and cut someone’s neck off.    It takes practice and lots of strength.   That’s why I showed you photos of the little toddlers being trained to take off the heads of their teddy-bears *. . . .

But I don’t need to show you photos of the aftermath of brutal rapes and beheadings and disembowelments and burnings and drownings and crucifixions.   They’re all over the Internet.

Because they want us to know.

Because they’ve  declared WAR against us.    It’s in their book. 

So from now on when I write about these Warriors of the Crescent Moon god,   I will write about them in Green.    Their chosen color.

And when I write about the Deaf People in the Western World who ask us to be kind and forgiving to these Warriors,  I shall write in Red.    I will indicate dhimm-witted people by Red.    (Dhimmi-witted, that is,  because that’s what we subjugated people are:  Dhimmis.)

These Crescent-Moon Warrior Extremists killed Father Hamel today;  terrorizing him and the people in the church,  just as their ancient leader said to do.  He wrote in their book to use Terror in order to conquer **,    and he left them his explicit examples.     These Warriors humiliated the good priest and the people inside,  during the solemn ceremony of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass,    then jumped up on the altar,  then yelled things in their language,  then sliced through Father Hamel’s throat.

And then they published threats of further similar deeds to churches in the UK and in the US.

SOON!   It says.   And that’s our Statue of Liberty on fire.      Because the whole world should be a caliphate of the Desert-Warrior Crescent Moon god.     Submit!!   Or die.   Do you NEED a citation for their authority?      Koran (Surah) 33:36:    “It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision.”      You don’t HAVE an option.   The Crescent Moon god has decided for you!

And what is the brave response to this threat?

Some political leaders in Europe are asking us not to “make this a religious war.”    “Not to make this a war between religions.”      It’s not.   It’s a war of political and territorial conquest.    And we are being conquered in the current phase of this centuries-old war.

The archbishop of this area in France,  the one who is in authority over Father Hamel and is supposed to be his “shepherd”?

He speaks about his “sadness” at learning of the killing.  And then:  “The Catholic Church cannot take weapons other than those of prayer and brotherhood among men. I leave here hundreds of young people who are the future of humanity, the true ones. I ask them not to give in to the violence and become apostles of the civilization of love.”

Fight back, you young men and women,  with “prayer and brotherhood”?      You want prayer?   There is a young nun fighting for her life today –  also knifed in that church today.  Pray for her!

A Cardinal-Archbishop (of Manila,  Tagle)  expresses his grief,  prays for France,  and then says:      This “unhappy incident will help us understand in what way we can carry out the Social Doctrine of the Church,” he added.

Social Doctrine is needed?

The pope “asks the Lord to inspire in all thoughts of reconciliation and fraternity in this new trial, and to extend to everyone the abundance of His blessings”.

Reconciliation to . . . ?

The man that was put into the office of our presidency  (the US)  and who was raised as a Sunni Muslim in Malaysia said recently:   ““For Muslims across the United States and around the world, this is a time of spiritual renewal . .  .”   as he celebrates a major Muslim holiday.

Oh, speaking of “recently” –

Timeline

Lots of deaths missing from this timeline,  but they were making  a limited point.

“Points”  have to be made about this war that has been declared against us.    We all have to think clearly about this. ***   “Points” are being used to attack us.   Maybe “points” have to be used in response.

My Grandpa fought in World War I.  My Dad fought in World War II.   My cousin fought in the Viet Nam War.      I always wondered when the next “hot war”  would come,  when we were being attacked and killed.

DNC – DEAR MRS. C

July 26, 2016

Dear Mrs. Clinton . . . .

Well, never mind.  Don’t worry about a thing.   Your friends in the entertainment-news media won’t tell us anything.

You’re safe.

Bar wavy

 

Sorry.    This posting has been canceled.   I wrote about many of the things that your friends in the entertainment-news media won’t tell us . . .  and then I got sick to my stomach.

Bar wavy

 

Sick, thinking about all the dirty deceptions going on.   Oh, no —  I know this happens in politics with some (some, not all) politicians.     But I’ve never seen this level of unchallenged hypocrisy and lying.      Facts are facts, and saying they’re not doesn’t make them not true.    Facts remain.    (Or are we being played for idiots?)

But what makes it worse is that the DNC and the media are working together to elect this one into office.

It’s Collusion.

And we, the public,  are the victims of collusion.   The media and the DNC work together to trick and deceive the American people  when our dearest and most important exercise of political freedom is at stake.

From the leaked emails this week:  (the ones leaked so far)
This week, Wikileaks revealed DNC emails discussing their cozy relationships with reporters from NBC, MSNBC, and CNN, and how to get better media treatment for Hillary Clinton.

Exposed also was the Politico writer sending his stories to the DNC before he sent them to his editor.

The DNC was feeding CNN the questions they want to be asked in interviews.

The DNC Communications Director sent emails to media about Bernie Sanders’ religion to scare the southern (mostly Baptist) voters.

There were emails showing the DNC was upset that their “allies” didn’t send in enough protestors at events, so they sent out interns to to organize fake “protests” at Trump events.

And the leaked emails show DNC officials even planned anti-Trump protests.

Planned a fake ad for employees for Trump,  asking for obviously racist, anti-woman, etc. type of people.

 

(A partial list repeated in several places . . . )

I see blatant lies being told on the entertainment-news television media this week, and the lies are unchallenged,  unquestioned,  and celebrated , as though they were true and wonderful.   These people know the Real Hillary Clinton –  and they don’t care!

She has broken so many federal laws . . .   and it’s  . . .   it doesn’t matter.

Good grief!!!!     Is this Venezuela?    Are we bring promised an economic and social Utopia by a “saintly”   Presidente?   Imperial Rule and the Ruler is above the Law?

I understand why so many Republicans and Democrats are chanting    “Lock her up!”

Lock her up!

The alternative is to reward her . . .

Please, can’t the Democrats come up with an honorable candidate?

(DNC) – “DEAR MRS BROWN”

July 25, 2016

mom african

 

Dear Mrs.  Brown,

First,  I am going to assume you and your son Michael have the same last name.    And “Mrs.”  is one of the highest titles a woman can receive (and earn); so I am going to use that honorable title for you.

mom and ch   In addition,   I share with you the awesome position of motherhood with all its beauty and wonderment, and awesome responsibilities.

I am wondering about some things.   I am a mother too,  and I know some things that the children we raise must be taught.

I also have a son that grew to be quite large,  larger than most of the people around him, larger than  most of his friends.   Mrs. Brown, did you teach your son that his size might intimidate others, and that he could easily become a self-entitled bully, just by the way smaller people react to his size?

Did you (and his father)  teach him and teach him by example  to be gentle with other people, respectful?

Dd you teach him that you don’t “throw your weight around” – not by shouting and intimidating words, nor literally, physically -although he easily could?

mom bl and son    Did you teach him the Ten Commandments (which elevate all cultures) such as Thou Shalt Not Steal?

Did you teach him that shoplifting, even a small item,  is stealing?

Did you teach him that when the store owner catches him,  not to become intimidating and  not to push the store manager down into a display,  even though your son, Michael,  does have the physical strength to do that?

Dear Mrs. Brown,    does he know that he can be a bully people and ignore   laws which ordinary  people have to live by —  but he mustn’t?

Did you teach him that one doesn’t walk down the middle of the street?

That it’s dangerous for him to do so?

That it’s against the law for pedestrians?

That it’s disruptive to traffic and rude to drivers?

That when a policeman tells him to “get off the road,”  he should do that?

Mrs. Brown,  does he know that when you break a law, like stealing from a store,  that your description will become known to the local police?

Mrs. Brown,  does he know that policemen have a DUTY to stop you if you look like the lawbreaker  and ask you questions about where you’d just been?

Policemen have duties to do, in order to protect you and me, and to enforce public safety laws?

Mrs. Brown,  did you teach your son, Michael,  to show respect to a police officer who is talking to you?

And to stop walking so he can talk to you?

And not to shout back?

And not charge his police car?

And not to reach into the car and try to take his gun?

Did you teach him that there would be eye witnesses and videos and forensic evidence of his actions inside the police car?

Did you teach him that those actions against a police officer could result in his death?

Mrs. Brown,  did you speak up when people began lying about what happened, in order to arouse the anger a few people of his own race?

Mrs. Brown, did you speak out to the public and teach them  that this whole movement, based upon something that didn’t happen with your son  should come to a stop because it is based upon an erroneous premise and it promotes contempt,  hatred, and violence against police officers –  whom we all need to keep the police and public safety for us?

Did you speak out to the crowds to tell them to have respect for your son by telling the truth?

The truth about how your son grew up?

The truth about what your son did on the day of his death?

The truth about what happens when anyone doesn’t obey the law?

The truth that there consequences for living according to your own impulses, without self restraint, without reference to a Higher Power?

Dear Mrs. Brown,  I hope you are not riding high on the phenomenon called celebrity.  It’s a heady experience,  but it does no honor to your son, and his death would remain meaningless.

And the falsehood that grows and grows and arouses anger in more people will result in the death of many policemen,  (and not the “bad” policemen who are then prosecuted, but policemen in general,  the good ones.)

And law and order will break down.

And it will be even more difficult, if not impossible,  for a peaceful society to produce safety and prosperity for more and more people.

The political process:

Crowd

 

I hope all these people know,  that you can’t break laws just because of who you are.

GITCHE MANITO SPEAKS ON JULY 17TH

July 17, 2016

The French Revolution was a war against Christianity, Reason,  Logic, Civility, Peace, and Individual Freedom .

July 17th.    Christendom remembers the small group of Carmelite nuns who met their death on July 17, a couple hundred years ago during the French Revolution.

BTR1

Young ladies,  some just teenagers,  quiet, devout, pure and moral, singing a Te Deum in a lovely choir of feminine voices, a choir that got thinner and thinner as the nuns, one by one,  took their place on the guillotine, until one voice was left, and then none.

The painting shows one by one they met their death, passing from this earth to the one at the top of the painting, into the waiting arms of their sisters who had met the guillotine moments before.

Their crime was that their religious faith was different from the “religion”  of the new republic of France which included a new moral code.   New laws, and new interpretations of laws made their faith in Christ a crime.   They had no right to the quiet, personal expression of their faith.

Similar storm clouds on the horizon here in this country too.

Today’s weather:

Cloud Over 1

And, July 17th, today, the latest example in our nation of the hatred against a Christian (and previously Christian )  society.   The shooter in Baton Rouge today  was interested in the Nation of Islam.  Previously, in Nice, France, a man driving a great white truck into crowds shouted out (his)  “god is greater”!    The common cry of Islamist warriors.

Menacing clouds arise:

Cloud Over 2

There will always be July 17th’s ahead.    And other dates too.    Because if we don’t work to spread goodness and to check the evil,  evil will grow.

TWO DAYS IN A ROW up here in the  Land of Hiawatha I was here, in this small private chapel, when strong storms arose outside:

GG chapel indoors 400

The first time there was such a loud crash that I thought a construction crane outside had fallen over on top of the roof of this stone chapel which was located inside of a larger stone cathedral!  I looked up for cracks in the ceiling!

Storm clouds.    Evil on the horizon.    Approaching.

Everyone seems to be talking about “something”  that’s coming.    I don’t know what that could be, but I know it could be a lot of things;  things that have happened before at the hands of evil governments, evil ideologies.

Once, long ago,  Hiawatha turned to Gitche Manito, the Great Spirit-Father above, and he sat and pondered these things seriously.

You shall hear how Hiawatha
Prayed and fasted in the forest
Not for greater skill in hunting,
Not for greater craft in fishing,
Not for triumphs in the battle,
And renown among the warriors,
But for profit of the people,
For advantage of the nations.

First he built a lodge for fasting,
Built a wigwam in the forest
By the shining Big-Sea-Water . . .

For days he prayed and fasted, just as we could do . . .     He thought of all the things around him that are important to his physical well-being and safety, and he cried out:

“Master of Life!” he cried, desponding,
“Must our lives depend on these things?”

Finally, after several days,  Gitche Manito sent to him a strong and handsome youth, “dressed in garments, green and yellow,  coming though the purple twilight, through the splendor of the sunset . . .”

Because Hiawatha had prayed sincerely for the well-being of his fellow man,  and not just for himself,   his prayers had been heard.   Hiawatha will be told how to improve the society that he lives in.

Said this youth, O Hiawatha!
All your prayers are heard in heaven,
For you pray not like the others . . .
But for profit of the people,
For advantage of the nations.

From the Master of Life descending,
I, the friend of man, Mondamin,
Come to warn you and instruct you,
How by struggle and by labor
You shall gain what you have prayed for.
Rise  from your bed of branches,
Rise up and wrestle with me!”

“How by struggle and by labor you shall gain what you have  prayed for. . . .”

Oh, yes, bring our woes and worries to Gitche Manito, the Master of Life.    Go into a chapel or into a wigwam or into your own private room.    Begin with prayer;  begin with praying;  learn to pray if you’re out of practice — but then be prepared to continue your prayers with labor. “By struggle and by labor.”    The Master of Life works through our hands.

This part of the Epoch of Hiawatha then goes on to describe days and days of wrestling with this strange youth, sent from heaven,  to test and to strengthen and prepare Hiawatha for the serious struggles against evil.

(Monamin left a gift for Hiawatha and all his people.   Monamin’s wrestling  had prepared Hiawatha to recognize it.     The gift was “green and yellow” and it  promised peace and plenty for all, because Gitche Manito is really very generous.     You may know what it is or you may not,  but  I won’t name it for you because  it’s just one symbol of the abundance of goodness available for all men,  if we just knew it.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SILENCE FOR A TEENAGE GIRL

July 11, 2016

The Arctic blood in me is stirring.    The Far Far North is calling, and my daily routine will soon be disrupted.   

Sami teepee

In a very good way.    I go to seek my roots.   My foundation.

Dove of Peace outline

But a few last words,  because no one should be forgotten.

As I wrote in the last post,  the entertainment-news media can be false at times and it can be funny at times.   But not innocently false,   deadly false;   and it’s really not funny funny,  when Truth is battered.

And I sorrow when the Truth is ignored into silence.   An American-citizen teenager lost her life a couple weeks ago.    She was brutally murdered as she slept in her own bed, in the middle of the night.

She had been sight-seeing with her family –

Hallel and family

Close to her Mom:

hallel and mom

And her Mom said good-night to her one day.

And that night a man of another religion broke into her bedroom –

HaLLEL'Sbedroom

. . . . As I always tell people,  it’s not that easy to kill someone with a knife,  not even with a big knife.

Doesn’t look like it was easy.

We’re grown-ups:       Men and women who can face reality.   Face Truth.  Who can feel something.    Who can pray.   Who can act.    Or at least, who can speak up.

Her name is Hallel.    An American citizen.   Hallel Yaffa Ariel.   Living in Israel.     13 years old.   “She wanted to be a doctor”  when she grew up.

It’s time for me to  . . . go . . .  and think about things like this and other things.

I won’t be silent.    I’ll just be . . .  different for a while.

 

 

 

 

 

A FALSE STORY AND A FUNNY STORY

July 11, 2016

A FALSE STORY

You may have seen the giddy, laughing young Minnesota woman who video’d  her  friend moments after he was shot by a policeman, and then lay dying.  She seems very happy with herself for all the attention she is getting.  Her  “15-minutes of fame.”

Except her story is false.

gun showing
That shiny object in her friend’s lap is not a cell phone.    The police officer identified it as a gun.

And the man’s car  did NOT have a taillight  that was out.   The police officer did NOT stop him for  “a broken taillight.”      He stopped him because just before that, on that day,  an APB went out on “an armed suspect,” wanted for robbing a store at gunpoint.   The description of the armed suspect was given –  and the police officer saw a person that fit that description exactly,  in the same neighborhood as the store that was robbed, and stopped him.

It’s the policeman’s duty to apprehend men who have committed a crime.

The man did not obey the directions of the police officer.    The man did not have a Concealed Carry Permit,  and the man was not moving suddenly to get some sort of document out of his pocket.   He was not reaching for “a permit.”

tv programming kid

But the television has been repeating a different story –  even if they repeat it in order to argue  with a “different” point of view,  the false story is still told, over and over  — and people get mad.

You can be sure  shooters,   snipers, and robbers violate our gun laws.     The  criminals violate our gun laws (!)  but  the extreme leftists in our country lie about it and say we need more gun laws and that the shooters obtained  guns through “loopholes”  or weaknesses in the law.

A FUNNY STORY

Let me illustrate what happened when one leftist on a popular cable news channel went out to prove how easy it is to buy a gun here in America  (well, it was a CBS person):

The actors and actresses and news readers on television like to talk about “assault weapons,”   without understanding what they’re  talking about.”

So this news person went into the gun store and asked to buy an “assault weapon.”     The gun store owner didn’t understand what he was talking about.    The  clerk then helped him pick out a handgun  (not an “assault gun.”)

They went through the process, and this liberal was about to pay for his new gun — only to be stopped by our gun laws!   This leftist news “reporter”   was not permitted to buy a gun because he,  “a good citizen,”  had some previous difficulty with the authorities, something like a note in his record that he had been brought up on spouse abuse charges  (which could be almost nothing nowadays) and some old drunk driving charges.

Something in his younger days stayed on his record, indicating he once had a problem with his temper and with his alcohol.

Oooops.   Not that easy to buy a gun in America.

And the entertainment-news people don’t know enough to report the news —

The media can be FALSE and FUNNY at the same time.
