Decision time for the Catholic Church

The Catholic Church, in some respects rightfully so, has lost some of its clout and its standing as a positive institution to the general public, especially in the last few decades.  There are myriad reasons for this but sexual abuse scandals in particular have been a huge part of it.  Author Frédéric Martel, a homosexual socialist himself, is releasing a book soon, In the Closet of the Vatican, which is to shine more light on the situation.  In a press conference set for today lifesitenews.com reports:

According to the press release, the new book will “expose the rot at the heart of the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church today.” For this book, the author has done research for four years and in thirty different countries, and he has conducted “extensive interviews with those in power.”

Martel claims to be able to show us with his new book the underlying connection between the following topics: the celibacy of priests, the condemnation of the use of contraceptives, the cover-up of countless cases of sexual abuse, the resignation of Benedict XVI, misogyny among the clergy, the dramatic fall of  vocations to the priesthood, the plotting against Pope Francis.” His book is meant to “reveal these secrets.”

Martel describes in his book, according to the press release, a “system founded on a clerical culture of secrecy which starts in junior seminars and continues right up to the Vatican itself.” It is also based on “the double lives of priests and on extreme homophobia.” Thus, according to this book, there exists a certain “schizophrenia in the Church.”

According to the press release, however, “the more a prelate is homophobic, the more likely it is that he is himself gay.” “Behind rigidity there is always something hidden, in many cases a double life.” These words of Pope Francis are being specifically quoted because he himself  “unlocked the Closet” of the Vatican.

And a little bit further down:

While these pro-homosexual authors like Sullivan and Martel might wish to promote the acceptance of homosexuality in the Church, Michael Voris explains, people like Father James Martin, S.J. go into a similar direction, though not yet fully claiming: “change the Church’s teaching!” “But he has said,” Voris adds, “change that [expression] ‘objectively disordered’, get rid of that in the Catechism.”

Voris actually calls Father Martin out, saying that “we have various Jesuit seminarians telling us that in private at their private retreats, Martin admits to [his] being gay.”

“[Father Martin,] Refute what we are saying,” Voris adds. “You now have the opportunity to deny it.” For Voris, the Jesuit Martin is “another gay priest who is going around trying to change the Church’s teaching.”

Further discussing the article written by Andrew Sullivan, Voris comments “Sullivan thinks ‘dump the teaching [on homosexuality].’” “We would say: […] don’t dump the teaching,” as Church Militant’s Bradley Eli responds. Voris adds that he recently spoke with a bishop who told him that “he knows a number of bishops who are gay.”

Commenting on Martel’s upcoming book, Christine Niles says: “Nobody likes a hypocrite, nobody likes a liar. Nobody likes people who lead double lives.” “If you take a vow,” she continues, “and you promised chastity and continence, but you are secretly breaking that vow, people like him [Martel] they don’t like that.” Niles and Voris agree with Martel on this point, saying “he is correct on that.”

Commenting on Martel’s claim that the homosexual network within the Vatican is much bigger than expected, Niles says that the book will be an “eye opener” for many Catholic lay people about the fact that “the Vatican is essentially being run, largely, by homosexuals.” Voris also then mentions the Polish priest, Father Dariusz Oko, who told Church Militant years ago that “half of the guys running the Vatican are gay.” (See here for an interview with Father Oko.)

This is a pretty huge decision point for the Church.  They have an opportunity here to either push back against the horrifying amounts of rot and decay amongst their ranks, or make it even worse by normalizing and accepting it.  There is an interesting subplot of the whole book release in the intentions of the author.  Everyone agrees the homosexuality and abuse scandals need to be exposed and dealt with.  The author clearly has an agenda of outing this stuff to normalize homosexuality in the Catholic Church.  And it wouldn’t shock me for one second if it was discovered Pope Francis was gay.

But the Church needs to decide what to do with this now.  I suspect I know the direction they will go, but we will see.  They have an opportunity to use the book to bare all, acknowledge a huge problem, and deal with it swiftly by expelling all of these priests who lead these double lives, against their vows, and start anew.  Anything less would likely be a continued decay of the Church into obscurity and even more of an enemy to true Christianity.

Whether you are Catholic or not, all Christians should hope and pray for true reform in the Catholic Church.  The opinion of Christianity, fair or not, is usually linked to that of the Catholic Church.  When the Catholic Church is engaging in un-Christian activities, fair or not that is viewed across the entirety of Christianity as a whole.  This ripple effect is what turns many people off to Christianity, when in reality they are seeing decisions made by humans misinterpreting (or even more sinister, on purpose) Christ’s teachings and applying it to the Church.  It would be a very slippery slope to normalize homosexuality in the Church and I think it would turn off many of the Church’s members.  If the Church were smart, going forward they would allow the clergy to marry, and maybe even require it.  Whether you agree with homosexuality or not it should trouble everyone when clergy LIE about it and bottle it up to the point it becomes so repressed that the pressure is released through terrible acts.  Allow clergy to marry and not only will it flush out some of the rot but will open the door to many more potential clergy, given that they are having problems attracting more anyway.  The alternative, as the author hopes, in normalizing homosexuality and opening it up more in the Church, I fear, would be another step down the ladder away from true Christianity in an institution that is already struggling greatly.

The beginning of the end for the USA

I’m reading Martin van Creveld’s The Rise and Decline of the State and came across this passage regarding government centralizing services:

By that time even the United States, traditionally the stronghold of rugged individualism and low taxes (to make the House of Lords vote money for his plans, Lloyd George had threatened to create the necessary number of new peers), was feeling the need to do something for its working population.  A modest first step had been taken in 1912 when the Commonwealth of Massachusetts passed a law requiring the payment of minimum wages.  However, it only lasted a few years; in 1923 a Supreme Court decision declared a State of Oregon minimum-wage law for women unconstitutional.  Other measures to extend government control and limit private enterprise were equally unsuccessful.  For example, the number of persons who benefited from a government vocational education scheme instituted in 1917 was so small that statistics about it simply ceased to be published.  In 1920 a law calling for the abolition of child labor failed to make it through Congress.  Five years later, a Kansas law for the compulsory arbitration of industrial disputes was similarly thrown out of the High Court.  In 1929, the last year of prosperity, all American federal welfare expenditure combined only amounted to $0.25 per head of population, which constituted perhaps one percent of its British equivalent.

In the event it took the Great Depression and 12 million unemployed to shake the United States out of the world of laissez faire and into the one in which, whatever the names attached to the various schemes, welfare came to be financed out of taxation.  The foundations were laid in 1933 when President Roosevelt, ignoring howls of Republican opposition, set up the Federal Emergency Relief Agency (FERA).  Its first director was a social worker, Harry Hopkins; armed with a war chest of $500,000,000, it provided work for at least some of those who needed it.  Over the next six years this and numerous other programs led to the spending of some $13 billion over and the construction of 122,000 public buildings, 77,000 bridges, and 64,000 miles of roads inter alia – all, however, without making a real dent in the Depression which only ended in September 1939 when, following the outbreak of war in Europe, the stock exchange went through the roof.

Administratively speaking, the annus mirabilis of the New Deal proved to be 1935.  That year saw the introduction of social security including old-age insurance and assistance, unemployment compensation, aid to dependent children, and aid to the blind.  In 1939 survivors’ and disability insurance, already a standard feature in the most advanced European countries, were added to the list.  By that time every American citizen had been issued with his or her social security card and the Department of Health and Human Services had been created to oversee the system’s operation.  Even the Supreme Court was prepared to cooperate, though not before Roosevelt, having fought a battle royal with Congress, packed it with his own supporters.  In 1937 a Washington State minimum wage law was declared constitutional.  Another ruling did the same for social security itself; the age of big government had truly begun.

If only we could go back to the days where the Supreme Court actually respected the Constitution and “rugged individualism” was the law of the land.  Instead we let the socialists take over and burden us with the albatrosses of welfare and social security, and a bit later open borders.

Self-responsibility is a powerful motivator.  Yes, some people suffered by some of those Supreme Court decisions and yes, some people would have suffered if some of those social service programs weren’t in place (note that these social service programs did not end the Depression).  But you know what?  Having the onus on you and you alone to survive and fulfill your destiny is a powerful motivator.  When there is no guaranteed safety net most people will be motivated to work, or else that’s it.  With that also comes a greater sense of satisfaction.  And it is better for EVERYONE in the long run.  Sometimes we need to let things fail.  Some short-term pain saves a lot worse long-term suffering.  These decisions made decades ago have shackled us and our children and future generations.  They have destroyed far more lives than the few individuals who would have suffered at the time.

Adding these disastrous programs, in combination with the 1965 Immigration Act, which opened the floodgates for people who had no allegiance to the founding of the country and do not have the will (or often the capacity) to possibly live up to the original American ideal, and you have a bonafide disaster on your hands.  The demographic alteration that took place because of that cannot be emphasized enough.  The country, as it was before these social services programs and opening the borders, fundamentally changed forever.  And for the worse.

Looking ahead into 2019

There was a lot to be learned in 2018 if one was paying attention.  Here’s a few observations that we can learn from to use in 2019.

The Programming Runs Deep

People really can be programmed.  The more someone listens to the mainstream media news, or talk shows, or Netflix, or a variety of other narrative-approved sources, the stronger the connection.  Scott Adams likens it to two movies on the same screen.  Essentially people’s opinions and thoughts can be altered by the information they allow to feed into their brains.  This sounds obvious on the surface.  But the level of control and the amount of control is scary.  Social engineering.  This has been known for a long time.  Check out Edward Bernays and the Art of Public Manipulation.

It starts small.  Maybe it’s an innocuous image or two of a multi-racial family in a print ad or TV commercial.  Innocent in and of itself until you realize what they’re trying to do.  Or maybe it’s a slight change of lettering or wording.  The Berenstain Bears instead of the Berenstein Bears.  Or inventing terms like Judeo-Christian.  Or how about using Google vs Bing for your search results.  If you can accept that maybe there is a deeper, darker, more sinister objective to these types of seemingly innocent things you can begin to see what is going on.

IMG_2749.JPG

This has gone on for years.  It is not a new phenomena.  But it has hit a tipping point with many people.  Changes are happening faster over a shorter time period now.  Heck, look at Democratic talking points from 2018 vs 2008.  A 2008 Democrat was very anti-war.  Now they are mad President Trump is pulling out of an illegal war in Syria.  Once they were for the “little guy”.  Now they are all about big corporation funding.  A fence/wall, which they were all for in 2006 and 2013, is all of a sudden now the hill they’re willing to die on.  Most Democrats weren’t for gay marriage until about 10 years ago either.  Nor were they for illegal immigration.

All this is to say to be careful about what you watch and what you allow your loved ones to watch.  They do not report the news in an unbiased manner.  They have an agenda.  Look up who owns the NY Times or the Washington Post.  Do you really think these billionaires don’t have an ulterior motive other than presenting the news and facts as they are?  Of course not.  It’ll only get worse.  And the inversion of our values will only get worse.

For better or worse, it’s made me question a lot of the things I once took for granted.  We’ll get into this more later this year but even things like the moon landing are now questionable events that I once took for undisputed truth.  You will never go wrong by pursuing the truth.  You may get led down dark paths and discover things you never wanted to know, but this is ALWAYS preferable to lying to yourself.  Once you lie to yourself you can rationalize all sorts of evil and undesirable behavior and actions.

Evil is Real

This ties in a bit with the first point.  True evil does exist out there.  We’ve spoken about the rampant pedophelia problem in DC and Hollywood.  One of the ways the Cabal controls people is through blackmail.  Subscribe to Owen Benjamin if you want a rational, down to Earth view of the dark, sinister shit that goes on in these circles.  He was in these circles but couldn’t give in to the evil that necessarily seems to go along with making it “big” in Hollywood or DC.

Evil is real.  Sometimes it’s easier to spot evil than it is to spot good.  For me, I began to really notice and take seriously true evil around the time of Pizzagate.  That link is a pretty good starting point.  Check out neonrevolt.com and crazydaysandnights.net to go down that rabbit hole a little bit more.  It is not for the faint of heart.  If you can accept that evil is a real thing then you are on the path to truth.  It has rejuvenated my interest in Christianity, something I took for granted but now realize how much it has shaped our civilization and we’ve all gotten a glimpse of what a post-Christian Western civilization world looks like without it.  It is not pretty.  If you can accept that true evil exists then that is a good starting point to seeing that truth and true good also exists.  This is the path to Christ.

Protect Yourselves

2018 saw an unprecedented amount of censorship and deplatforming.  Dissident personalities like Alex Jones were rigorously ostracized and attacked for having views that did not fit with the accepted narrative.  Alternative news sources and individuals were demonetized and deplatformed on Twitter and YouTube like never before.  This is not an accident.  They are trying to silence the voices of those who speak truth and offer alternative viewpoints to the thoughts and opinions they want you to think.  “They” being the Master of the Universe aka Silicon Valley and their Deep State backers.  The cat is out of the bag.  This isn’t some tinfoil hat conspiracy theory anymore.

It’s a dangerous time to be a conservative in America.  You can easily be doxxed and have your life ruined for sharing your opinions.  I debated using a pseudonym or not when starting this site.  It’s certainly a risk to use one’s real name these days.  Be careful with what you post.  Consider what is at stake and what you’re willing to risk to share your opinions.  One should always post and profess the truth.  Just be careful with whom and how you share the truth.  It is not an even playing field out there.

2019 is going to be a good year.  The pieces are in place to have the hammer drop on the swamp creatures in DC and Hollywood.  Let’s learn from what happened in 2018 and continue to grow and adapt.  The attacks that come at us will only make us stronger.  Our arguments and positions are sharpened from all the criticism and vitriol.  We are antifragile.

A Glimpse Into Multiculti America

Check out what was spotted in New York City earlier this month:

New York’s Muslim community has a new security group watching over it.

A car from the new Muslim Community Patrol has been spotted around the city, joining the Jewish enclave’s Shomrim and the Brooklyn Asian Safety Patrol among New York’s culture-specific security groups.

The white Ford Taurus bears insignia nearly identical to those of an NYPD patrol car — with blue horizontal stripes down the sides, a shield on the front driver’s side door and the words “Muslim Community Patrol” descending on the rear door, where a department vehicle would say “Courtesy Professionalism Respect.”

The vehicle was recently spotted cruising along Fifth Avenue in Brooklyn’s Bay Ridge, home to a burgeoning Muslim population.

Is this really the country that we want?  Where every group of people has their own patrols for their own neighborhoods?  This is not assimilation.  This is tribalism.  And not surprising at all when you bring in wildly different groups of people and expect them to live together.  Inevitably they will group off into their own enclaves and continue to fracture the communities.

Screen Shot 2018-12-31 at 8.32.08 AM.png

This is one step closer to Sharia law creeping in, too.  Yes, people will explode when you say that.  They will say that you are overreacting.  They also told us loosening immigration laws wouldn’t change the demographic of the country.  It is simply inevitable if you let things continue to go unhindered.  Sharia is an inevitability once there is a critical mass of Muslims to vote the policy into place.  Never forget that these different groups of people are not assimilating into American culture and becoming “Americans”, whatever that even means anymore.  And it will only get worse.  We’re already at a point where Hispanics do not even bother to learn English anymore.  They don’t have to!  There’s enough Hispanics who speak Spanish that one can get by without learning English.  And we’ve only accommodated them further by making all of our signs English and Spanish.

This isn’t very hard to see.  Follow the current trends to their logical conclusions.  We’ve already fundamentally and nearly irreversibly changed the composition of the American demographics.  That is our new reality.  Just how far will this have to go before it is reversed either violently with civil war or somewhat rationally through the political system.  Given the current political climate I’m not holding my breath that this can end civilly.  It would be prudent to prepare and arm yourselves to protect your family and loved ones going forward.  All of the signs are there.  It would be folly to ignore them.

The Founding Fathers got it

As the relentless attacks continue on our country and our way of life many try to minimize the importance of Christianity in Western civilization and America in general.  Our Founding Fathers realized how important religion was to the success of this country.  Given the frighteningly fast decline of the country as religion continues to be marginalized here it’s clear that there is a direct link between this erosion of religion and the erosion of our moral compass as a nation.  And we see the corresponding cracks in our form of government as this erosion continues.  A letter from John Adams to the Massachusetts Militia, 11 October 1798.  Please excuse the parts of the manscript where there are gaps or deleted text, bold emphasis added by me.

To the Officers of the <third> first Brigade of the third Division of the Militia of Massachusetts

Quincy October 11. 1798

Gentlemen

I have received from Major General Hull and Brigadier General Walker your unanimous Address from Lexington, animated with a martial Spirit and expressed with a military Dignity, becoming your Characters and the <place> memorable Plains, in which it was adopted.

While our Country remains untainted with the Principles and manners, which are now producing desolation in so many Parts of the World: while the continues Sincere and incapable of insidious and impious Policy: We shall have the Strongest Reason to rejoice in the local destination assigned Us by Providence. But should the People of America, once become capable of that deep <[…]> simulation towards one another and towards foreign nations, which assumes the Language of Justice and moderation while it is practicing Iniquity and Extravagance; and displays in the most captivating manner the charming Pictures of Candour frankness & sincerity while it is rioting in rapine and Insolence: this Country will be the most miserable Habitation in the World. Because We have no Government armed with Power capable of contending with human Passions unbridled by <[…]> morality and Religion. Avarice, Ambition <and> Revenge or Galantry, would break the strongest Cords of our Constitution as a Whale goes through a Net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious People. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other

An Address so unanimous and firm from the officers commanding two thousand Eight hundred Men, consisting of such substantial Citizens as are able and willing at their own Expence, compleatly to arm, And cloath themselves in handsome Uniforms does honor to that Division of the Militia which has done so much honor to their Country. Oaths, in this Country, are as yet universally considered as Sacred Obligations. That which you have taken and so solemnly repeated on that venerable Spot is an ample Pledge of your sincerity, and devotion to your Country and its Government.

Extremist Muslim arrested in New Mexico training kids for school shootings

Via Fox News:

The father of a missing 3-year-old who was arrested at a New Mexico compound linked to “extremist Muslims” last week was training children to commit school shootings, court documents filed on Wednesday revealed.

Prosecutors allege Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 39, was conducting weapons training on the compound, where 11 children were found hungry and living in squalor. They asked Wahhaj, who appeared in court on Wednesday, be held without bail.

Wahhaj is the son of a Brooklyn imam, also named Siraj Wahhaj, who was named by prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the New York Post reported.

New Mexico.  Not Afghanistan.  Not Iraq.  Though you wouldn’t be able to tell from the suspects or the compound.

Suspects

The father of the boy reportedly wanted to give him an exorcism because they thought he was possessed.  In reality he suffered from seizures and his remains were found at the compound.

Compound

This is the fruit that “diversity” often bears.  Is this really what we want?  To be clear: these people did not magically change their ways when they moved to America.  They brought their culture and customs with them.  This isn’t surprising to anyone with half a brain, but it apparently will come as a shock to those who are willfully ignorant and mindlessly virtue signal that it’s okay for anyone and everyone to come to the United States.  As much as many here wish it weren’t so, many immigrants that come here do not want to assimilate to our culture and will not assimilate.  And many of these customs and cultures being brought here are simply incompatible with the Western world and American way of life.  Our freedoms simply do not mesh with their belief system.  These kids were being groomed for future school shootings.  Let that sink in.

Spread these stories around.  The more average, everyday Americans hear about this stuff the more they’ll become vocal about wanting to preserve our way of life.  The more the general population is vocal the easier it will be for President Trump to reform our broken immigration system.  Illegal immigration needs to be stopped immediately.  And our legal immigration system needs a complete revamping as well.  We are importing 1.5 million new LEGAL immigrants a year as it is.  That too needs to stop.  Freeze immigration for 5 years, or put it to a trickle for the next decade.  Many who are sympathetic to immigrants and want to appear compassionate are completely ignoring how drastic the demographic change will be and already has become.  Just remember, virtue signaling will only make your children’s future that much worse.  Think of the world we leave them.  If we don’t do something soon we will be leaving them far worse off than the trajectory already leads at our current pace.

New report on why Britain’s Deradicalization Programs are failing

A recent study performed by the Behavioural Insights Team (BIT) of Great Britain revealed that only 2 of Britain’s 33 deradicalization programs actually work.  The main takeaway from the article, not surprisingly to some of us, via Gatestone Institute:

The main reason for the failure of the other 31 programs, according to the Times‘ report on the study, is:

“…that facilitators were uncomfortable dealing with sensitive topics and would often refuse to engage if they were brought up. BIT found that teachers in particular were afraid to bring up matters of race and religion with their students without appearing discriminatory, often causing them to refuse to talk about these topics entirely.”

The two effective initiatives, according to the Times, were “one defying political correctness and tackling difficult issues head-on and the other directly addressing extremism in religious [Islamic] texts.”

For as long as I can remember we’ve been taught that “diversity is our strength”.  Yet I challenge you to name one instance, outside of perhaps athletics, where diversity is specifically a strength, an area where we’ve only exceeded from diversity (rather than just do something of equivalent value).  More often than not, it appears to be a glaring weakness.  Further down in the article:

In Britain, the majority (82%) of the 228 people in custody for terrorism-related offenses espouse Islamist extremism. In August 2017, the EU’s counter-terrorism coordinator, Gilles de Kerchove, said that the UK has more radicalized Muslims than any other European country. He added that Britain “has identified 20,000 to 35,000 radicals. Of these, 3,000 are worrying for MI5, and of those 500 are under constant and special attention.”

Contrary to what they’ll try and teach you these days, Islam is not native to Great Britain.  It’s not surprising to me in the least bit that the vast majority of terrorism related offenses are Islamic terrorism.  The fact that you even need deradicalization centers in your country should probably raise a red flag or two.  And again, it seems to me there is a much greater problem from diversity here than a strength.  And we are our own worst enemy with trying to fix it.  Fear of appearing racist or bigoted is hampering the only two known initiatives to beginning to address radicalization.  The ultimate answer, of course, would be to have stricter immigration laws from the beginning.  But that’d be too considerate to the native population.  Western civilization can survive with a plethora of ideas and beliefs for anyone to practice, but only within reason.  Mass replacement of the native population will inevitably end in bloodshed.

Powerful memetics – Creeping Islam

CreepingIslam

This is how it happens folks.  It’s a slow creep.  Seemingly innocuous until it’s too late.  It’s not bigoted, or racist, or whatever else, to have an opinion and want to preserve a little bit of the way of life we’ve enjoyed and what has made this country and Western society what it is.  Nor is it to say Islam, or any other religion, should be banned.  But, things should be kept in check and in proportion to preserve what makes Western society what it is.  I certainly would like to keep some of it for my children.
