Steve Bannon releases Trump at War movie

Must watch. 

If you are considering not voting in the midterms or if you are considering voting for any democrat/person on the left...this will change your mind. 

   "2016 marked a revolution in American politics when a political novice upended the entrenched political classes on both sides of the aisle, and achieved a stunning victory for the forgotten men and women of the nation.
Running on a common-sense platform of America First, a revitalized economy, tax cuts, a reinvigorated foreign policy, and a promise to reestablish American sovereignty with immigration reforms, Donald Trump ignited a dormant passion in the hearts of his supporters, and won the presidency in what was arguably the most significant election campaigns in our nation’s history.
Trump @War is a retelling of that story and a look forward to the high-stakes midterm election in November, which will help cement his legacy, good or bad."

What the hell Pope Francis!

The "stang"... 

Quote: "The Stang is adored by many modern Traditional Witches, myself included. It’s a tool whose use powerfully evokes a sense of connection to something old and primitive. In its simplest form, a forked staff, Witches use the Stang in various ways including representing the Horned One, aiding in spirit flight, and directing energy."  

Now this from our Pope... 

American Papist, Thomas Peters on Twitter put it best...

In Christ and continually befuddled & saddened by our current pope.

I'm a Candidate to be a Jesuit . . . and I'm gay

**Warning there is a Youtube image of Jay sitting on the toilet at the bottom of this post- he records himself on the toilet in one of his Youtube videos.

For the love of all that's holy, we must be saved from men like this entering the seminaries.

Jay is a Fr. James Martin wannabe. He even retweets and quotes Fr. Martin frequently on social media. Two peas on pod. 

Some facts about Jay. Jay has a "gay" teddy bear named "Barnsie" who he likes to keep in the back seat of his car "cause he likes it there". Jay likes to wear pink cause...of course, he's gay but he doesn't call pink 'pink', nope. Jay says gay Catholics call pink "purple" cause...I don't even remember at this point its all so insanely convoluted. I think he is trying (and failing) to be funny - of course considering all the other things Jay says and does he might be perfectly serious. Judge for yourselves. 

Jay the Jesuit wannabe actually records himself on the toilet (more on that later), pants around his ankles and all. I am stumbling for words to write this am so baffled and appalled by this guy. 

Let me start at the beginning with Jay's first video. 

Here in his breakout Youtube video he opines that people are wrongly blaming homosexual clergy for abuse in the Church and that there is nothing wrong with being gay (doesn't acknowledge Church teaching that homosexuality is disordered). 

He also states he must not be in the closet about his own sexuality because to not talk about being gay somehow takes away his freedom and would make him a terrible priest. He's really obsessed with being free. 

Jay says he "can't be true to the Gospel" as a gay man if he's in the closet. 

Seriously, he says that. 

He continues on saying he can't even "serve the Church" if he's not "one hundred percent free" - which again for Jay means telling the world about his sexual preferences for males. Jay has wrapped his freedom up in his homosexuality. All of this is completely nuts! 

He's a confused, mentally warped mess and I am sure the Jesuits will adore him. 

Looking at the comments so far on his Youtube channel I'd say he's not getting the responses he might have hoped for. 

I left a few comments of my own on his Youtube channel including several quotes on homosexuality. Like the catechism stating the homosexuality is a disorder. 

2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition. 

At the end of the video Jay proceeds to tell viewers we are not allowed to judge him... apparently he either doesn't know what Scripture says on the matter or perhaps its merely something else he rejects.
Sexual Immorality Must Be Judged9 I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral persons— 10 not at all meaning the immoral of this world, or the greedy and robbers, or idolaters, since you would then need to go out of the world. 11 But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother or sister[c] who is sexually immoral or greedy, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or robber. Do not even eat with such a one. 12 For what have I to do with judging those outside? Is it not those who are inside that you are to judge? 13 God will judge those outside. “Drive out the wicked person from among you.” [1 Corinthians 5 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition]  
I am interested to see if he will address any of the comments left. 

Jay has other videos including a video called "A Day in My Big Gay Catholic Life part 1" that is just weird, absurd and appalling. 

The first half of the video Jay records himself waking up, going into the bathroom (flushing toilet sounds) and then he attempts to say the "Our Father" but can't remember it because he hasn't had his coffee yet. He apologizes to Jesus, ditches his prayers and makes his way to the kitchen for his breakfast- which he records making and eating. 

During Jay's breakfast with coffee he asks and answers riveting questions like 

"Gay Lifestyle Question #1: How important is coffee to you? Is it a 'gay lifestyle' thing? It is a Catholic?"

His response is repulsive and bizarre... "coffee is the 8th sacrament" blah, blah, blah. He's trying to be funny, but he's just a sad joke. 

Then he records himself sitting on the toilet and reading "The Jesuit Guide to Almost Everything" by Father James Martin. 

One comment under this vulgar video...
andyyyp scarborough
3 hours ago (edited)
The clip at 10.33 really just about sums you up. Vulgar and gauche. Do you really think an aspiring clergyman would be comfortable showing his bare thighs sat on the toilet, literally defecating? Mind you, you clearly don't do irony as the book you're reading is by Father Liberace no less, so toilet paper is indeed about all it's worth.
After the toilet scene Jay goes for a run them comes home and shows himself tossing his clothes on the floor as he gets naked and then showers - thankfully he doesn't record his shower-but does record drying off his lower torso.

I said it before and I have to say it again...its bizarre and appalling- and I am sure the Jesuits will love him. 

God save His Church and us all from men like Jay. 

In Christ,

The Michael Voris chatter

Catholic media is full of chatter after Vigano's testimony this weekend and the call for Pope Francis to resign. 

Part of that chatter is focused on Church Militant's Michael Voris for his sudden change of heart about criticizing a sitting pope. 

Full disclosure, I support Church Militant and believe they do a good job in defending and teaching the Faith - particularly when our clergy fail us. I also admire their bulldog attitude in going after corrupt clergy and not letting them get away with it. I think they are doing a very good job and I applaud them daily for their dedicated work. 

That said, I have on my blog disagreed with Church Militant on a few issues over the years. 

One of those times is when I voiced a different opinion on whether or not it is right to publicly criticize a sitting pope. 

My posts: 

     In this post, I look at The Remnant's writer Chris Ferrara, the late (God rest his soul) John Vennari of Catholic Family News, Louie Verrecchio of (at the time) Harvesting the Fruits of Vatican II, and myself after Church Militant put out their "manifesto" stating they would not publicly criticize a sitting pope.  

Church Militant's manifesto: 
Quote: “Faithful Catholics need help in persevering through their anxieties and doubts, not continual reinforcement and encouragement of those troubling states. Less faithful Catholics form their judgments of "traditional Catholics" through the lens of perceived dissatisfaction and unhappiness with the Church and the Holy Father. Those who relentlessly criticize the Church, Her leaders, and especially the Holy Father, do immense harm to the Church Herself and discourage both potential converts and those struggling to stay faithful through the crisis that is all around us. The sad reputation of "traditional Catholics" as angry dissidents from virtually everything in the Church today is as well deserved as the reputations of those rightly described as modernists. A line must be drawn when it comes to criticism of the Holy Father, even when he says or does things that would invite appropriate criticism when said or done by those of lower ecclesiastical rank. Errant priests and bishops can be replaced. The Pope cannot. It may make us cringe at times but it always was and always will be true that ubi Petrus, ibi ecclesia. There have been extraordinarily awful Popes in the past but, for all that, the Church not only survived but thrived. The Popes immediately before, during and after the Protestant Revolt showed little recognition or understanding of the catastrophe unfolding before them (not unlike the post-conciliar Popes of our own time) yet, from such unpromising soil emerged an astonishing number of great Saints, and the Council of Trent.”
[note: the above quote taken from CM's website has since been either moved or taken down. The original link I have (as given in my blog post= ) no longer works.] 

Soon after writing the above post, I received a flood of emails, some from Church Militant on the subject. I wrote about our email exchange on... 

In this post, after reading email discussions between Voris and others, I talk about the people who -seemed to me- to want to bully Voris into going against his conscience and criticize Pope Francis. While I disagree with Voris on a persons right to criticize a sitting pope, I defend Voris' right to set his own terms and limits to what he will publicly say about a sitting pope. My point was/is no one should be forced into saying or doing something their conscience tells them not to do. 

I did not get into who felt insulted by Voris' "ecclesiastical porn" judgment of other Catholic media outlets. I again disagree with Voris' take, as I am a daily reader of these outlets and have even been a subscriber to The Remnant paper- which I highly recommend. Each of these outlets hit back at Voris and stood their own ground very well. I couldn't have defended them any better than they defended themselves. More on this later. 

My posts... 

   In this post, I talk about a Vortex episode in which Michael Voris tells Catholics to "take a chill pill", ignore what the media reports about Francis and wait for the Vatican to tell us what the Pope really means when he says outrageous scandalous stuff. 

I couldn't disagree more with Voris on this and state my reasons in the above blog post. 

Now zoom ahead a year later and Michael Voris is himself calling for Pope Francis to resign. This of course, gave many Church Militant followers whiplash after all these years of being told to "take a chill pill" and "don't criticize a sitting pope" or you risk harming the Church and other people! 

Here are a few of Church Militant's current articles suddenly critical of Pope Francis... 

Quote: "Given the horror that has increasingly seized hold of the Church these past 50 years — and which has climbed to unimaginable heights under the pontificate of Pope Francis — now is the appropriate moment for the laity to offer comment, which we are rightly allowed to do according to canon law.
As many people know, Church Militant has taken great pains in the past to avoid public criticism of Pope Francis with regard to various confusing theological writings, interviews and off-the-cuff remarks.
Out of respect for the office of Pope, and so as not to induce scandal, we have dutifully left the work of publicly analyzing his theological content to those above us, more qualified to address those things specifically and those responses we have covered in great detail.
Likewise, we have made a point of steering far clear of any disrespectful or uncharitable comments denigrating the Holy Father owing to his theological pronouncements — but that was in the arena of theology.
The homosexual clerical sex abuse scandal and resulting cover-up is not theological at its foundation, but moral.
And in this arena, the laity are absolutely duty-bound to speak up, for while we may not all be theologians, each one of us is a moral being and will be judged by Our Blessed Lord on how faithfully we have lived in accord with that objective morality.
With that said, Pope Francis, Holy Father, for the salvation of your own soul, you must step down from the Chair of Peter and do so immediately."[clipped] 

Now Church Militant has decided it is the right time to criticize a sitting pope...this is not going over well with those Voris has condemned in the past. 

The Remnant is calling Voris out on his sudden change of opinion... "Now, after keeping silent on Francis’ continual violations Church teaching for five years, Voris suddenly rips the man he would previously piously refer to as “The Vicar of Christ on earth,” “The Supreme Roman Pontiff,” and “Sweet Christ on Earth” to absolute shreds."
I highly recommend reading Chris Jackson's The Remnant article in full:  

The Remnant isn't the only one calling out Mr. Voris. 

Hilary White has a few things to say also in her blog post "Wish you were here: Mike Voris, just man up and apologise" 
Quote: "I just wrote this ridiculously long thread on Twitter. I’ll only add that though I’m glad Mike has finally got on board, (video here) the way he did it was, to be perfectly frank and given all the crap he’s given a lot of people over the years, churlish and ungracious. Dude, don’t be that guy.
Taylor Marshall and Dom Betinelli have done the more manly thing recently – admitted they were mistaken and wrong to have attacked people who should have been their friends and apologised. Be like them.
I still like Mike, and still want to maintain good professional relations with him. And I look forward to more beer and songs at some point in the future when all is at least a bit better in the world. In professional terms, we go way back and I welcome him to the Super-Sekrit Club, and appreciate his incredible furious flying helicopter of fists now that the crunch seems to be here at last."[clipped] 

I know this sounds lame, but as a Catholic woman just looking for good sound Catholic news, information and teachings on the Internet- I really, really, really wish everyone could just get along. 

What The Remnant, Church Militant, Catholic Family News and other Catholic media outlets and blogs have to offer is wonderful, inspiring, encouraging, uplifting and is often the glue that keeps so many of us sane in the chaos and mess of the Pope Francis Pontificate. We need your voices in the world today. Please try to sort out your differences and where apologies are needed, give them. 

God bless you all. 

In Christ,

Pope Francis Must Resign

Truly, I am stunned by the events of this weekend. The SCATHING letter by Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano about the corruption in the Church is simply stunning.
LifeSiteNews: "In an extraordinary 11-page written statement (see official English text below), Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, 77, claims that Pope Francis knew about strict canonical sanctions imposed on McCarrick by Pope Benedict XVI but chose to repeal them.
In his testimony, dated August 22, Archbishop Viganò, who served as apostolic nuncio in Washington D.C. from 2011-2016, states that in the late 2000s, Benedict had “imposed on Cardinal McCarrick sanctions similar to those now imposed on him by Pope Francis,” and that Viganò personally spoke with Francis about the gravity of McCarrick’s abuse soon after his election in 2013.
But he says that Francis “continued to cover him” and not only did he “not take into account the sanctions that Pope Benedict had imposed on him” but also made McCarrick “his trusted counselor” who helped him to appoint a number of bishops in the United States, including Cardinals Blase Cupich of Chicago and Joseph Tobin of Newark. 
Archbishop Viganò also implicates Cardinals Sodano, Bertone and Parolin in the cover-up and insists various other cardinals and bishops were well aware, including Cardinal Donald Wuerl, McCarrick’s successor as Archbishop of Washington D.C.
“I myself brought up the subject with Cardinal Wuerl on several occasions, and I certainly didn’t need to go into detail because it was immediately clear to me that he was fully aware of it,” he writes. The Cardinal’s “recent statements that he knew nothing about it … are absolutely laughable. He lies shamelessly.”
“Cardinal Wuerl, well aware of the continuous abuses committed by Cardinal McCarrick and the sanctions imposed on him by Pope Benedict, transgressing the Pope’s order, also allowed him to reside at a seminary in Washington D.C. In doing so, he put other seminarians at risk,” he attests.[end quote]
Archbishop Vigano calls out all the wolves by name- Blase Cupich, Joseph W. Tobin, McCarrick, McElroy, Maradiaga and Wuerl to name just a few. From the very top beginning with Pope Francis himself, to the bottom with priests like Father James Martin. 

Quote: "Father James Martin, S.J., acclaimed by the people mentioned above, in particular Cupich, Tobin, Farrell and McElroy, appointed Consultor of the Secretariat for Communications, well-known activist who promotes the LGBT agenda, chosen to corrupt the young people who will soon gather in Dublin for the World Meeting of Families, is nothing but a sad recent example of that deviated wing of the Society of Jesus."

Vigano goes even further calling on the pope to resign... 
"Francis is abdicating the mandate which Christ gave to Peter to confirm the brethren. Indeed, by his action he has divided them, led them into error, and encouraged the wolves to continue to tear apart the sheep of Christ’s flock. In this extremely dramatic moment for the universal Church, he must acknowledge his mistakes and, in keeping with the proclaimed principle of zero tolerance, Pope Francis must be the first to set a good example for cardinals and bishops who covered up McCarrick’s abuses and resign along with all of them."

But boy oh boy, I didn't see this coming and I can't believe we are at a place where we need to call for the resignation of a pope. It's sad, but entirely necessary if we are to rid the Church of this corruption. 

If the allegation are true, and they seem to be supported at this time, then Francis should indeed resign. 

What then? 

Michael Matt over at The Remnant thinks Pope Benedict should slip back into place. 
Remnant Editor's Note: "This could well mark the beginning of the end of the disastrous pontificate of Pope Francis. The former apostolic nuncio to the United States has accused Francis of repealing sanctions imposed by Pope Benedict XVI on then-Cardinal McCarrick for sexual abuse. This is a charge most serious, perhaps without precedent in modern times.
Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò's 11-page statement, released to the National Catholic Register, accuses Pope Francis of covering for McCarrick, ignoring the sanctions that Pope Benedict had imposed on McCarrick, and also of making McCarrick a trusted counselor who became Francis's "kingmaker" when it came to American appointments and was highly instrumental in the Pope's decision to elevate far-Left bishops such as Blase Cupich of Chicago and Joseph Tobin of Newark to the College of Cardinals.
So serious is the cover-up that for the good of the Church and protection of the faithful, Archbishop Vigano has called on Pope Francis to resign. But before Francis resigns, we the Catholic faithful demand that he also remove from the College of Cardinals those who conspired even before the 2013 conclave to make Jorge Mario Bergoglio pope come hell or high water. He and the St. Gallen Group know exactly who they are.
Also, as this is an unprecedented moment in papal history, perhaps the unprecedented step of recalling Benedict XVI to the Chair of St. Peter should also be considered sooner rather than later, before this crisis gets any more out-of-control than it already is. May God save His Church MJM"
I would be stunned again if we saw this happen. Personally, I don't think Benedict would go along with this option, but you never know. He might feel responsible for this current Francis chaos and mess and wish to correct the disaster inflicted upon the laity when he, Benedict, abandoned the flock to the wolves. 

Texas Bishop Bishop Joseph E. Strickland said he believes the allegations to be "creditable" and has called for a complete investigation into this matter. He also told all his priests to “include this notice in the masses on August 26, and post it on their websites and other social media immediately.” 

Cardinal Raymond Burke has also spoken out: “The declarations made by a prelate of the authority of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò must be totally taken to heart by those responsible in the Church,” said Burke. “Each declaration must be subject to investigation, according to the Church’s time-tried procedural law." 
"After the truth of each declaration has been established, then the appropriate sanctions must be applied both for the healing of the horrible wounds inflicted upon the Church and her members, and for the reparation of the grave scandal caused,” says Cardinal Burke." 

My personal thoughts on this... this is good for the Church. I think prayers are being answered right now. The Church is at a place where the evil inside the Church can be purged out. 

I pray that Vigano is an example to other Bishops and clergy to speak out and not be afraid. The truth must come out and the rotten clergy removed. 

God bless you Archbishop Vigano for your honesty and fearlessness! 

In Christ,

Surfing the web and found these gems...

Time for another post on the assorted insanity I find on the internet.  

First up! 

The derangement of Protestantism continues

Quote: Pastor VanHall says "What would it look like to be a church that looked like the movement that Jesus started and not like the church that we know in America today? Out of that consistent questioning came this model for a brewery church that generates funds for local charities,"

Christopher VanHall pastor of Greater Purpose Community Church in Santa Cruz, California is founding a new "church" which is set to open next summer. His theology is white supremacists killed Jesus and Jesus was a feminist, an environmentalist and LBGTQ affirming- so that is what VanHall's new "church" will be too.  

Quote: "We are all for racial justice, which Jesus was a Palestinian, Jewish rabbi, he was a person of color that was killed by white supremacy so we're usually making every effort to be on the front lines for racial justice. So that's what sets us apart from many American churches." 😕

This "pastor" is opening a brewery in his "church" (which sits below some Planned Parenthood offices) and will be serving beer during the "church" services- he says having two beers will make his sermons better -I believe him. Proceeds from the beer profits and donations (30%-60%) will go to Planned Parenthood and other local progressive charities.  


Thank you Jesus once more that I am Catholic! 🙏

Next up...Check your Holy Water fonts!!!!!!!! 

Catholic church BANS holy water to keep mosquitoes away

Quote: "A CATHOLIC church has stopped providing holy water for its visitors after virus-spreading tiger mosquitoes were spotted using it to lay eggs. The holy water has been removed from the church of Gesu, known as the church of Saint-Jacques-le-Majeurin, in the heart of the old town of the southern French city of Nice."

Quote: "Father Dardonville, the church priest, said that he asked for the water to be removed after a visitor spotted tiger mosquito larvae in it and he says there are not enough staff to deal with the problem. 
A note stuck on the wall above the empty holy water bowl reads: "No water-sanitary reasons, risk of proliferation of tiger mosquitoes". 
Father Dardonville said: "A father and his two children came to warn me about the presence of larvae in the holy water and two days later I put the note up. 

"For safety, I asked for something radical because I could not make sure that the holy water would be changed every other day during my holidays."



A Maine restaurant faced threats of violence when it changed from crinkle-cut to straight-cut fries 

Quote: "The Journal had reported the Waterville restaurant faced threats of violence when it changed from crinkle-cut to straight-cut fries in June. 

Parsons says the change was a financial decision because crinkle-cut fries required special blades that needed to be bought monthly. She says many people felt as new owners they were changing tradition at Bolley's, which had served crinkle-cut fries since it opened in 1962." 

Seriously people? Threats of violence over fries? 😕



Okay ladies, what do you do if you think someone is going to attack your husband? 

This woman decided - at a high school softball game- to drop her pants and moon the threatening man to distract him from going after her husband. 

Quote: "The Roanoke Times reports 57-year-old Debbie L. McCulley is accused of mooning the stands, but a judge Thursday said the indecent exposure charge could be dropped.

McCulley's husband coaches Glenvar High School junior varsity softball. A Floyd County sheriff's deputy's report says McCulley took the field after a loss to Floyd County High School and exposed her right butt cheek. McCulley said she thought the other coach was going to attack her husband, so she refocused attention." 😮 


Paris residents peeved at very public eco-friendly urinals 

Quote in part: "PARIS (Reuters) - A new set of eco-friendly but completely exposed urinals deployed on the streets of Paris are provoking uproar from locals.

One of the bright red "urinoirs" installed on the Ile Saint-Louis, not far from Notre Dame cathedral and overlooking tourist boats passing on the Seine, has caused particular indignation.

Locals have written to the town hall to demand its removal and are planning a petition.

"There's no need to put something so immodest and ugly in such an historic spot," said Paola Pellizzari, 68, owner of a Venetian art store."  


Quote: "We're told we have to accept this but this is absolutely unacceptable. It's destroying the legacy of the island. Can't people behave?"

Local mayor Ariel Weil insisted the devices were necessary, however. Paris authorities have rolled out four of the stand-up loos in spots where public peeing has been a problem, and a fifth is planned.

"If we don't do anything, then men are just going to pee in the streets," he said. "If it is really bothering people, we will find another location."

That's just disgusting. 


No mention in the article that migrants are to blame, but clearly that is why this is happening. Paris isn't what it used to be. 
Paris, France migrants camping in streets
Only a matter of time before California decides this is how they will deal with their homeless who are using the streets as restrooms. 
Watch this video if you can... 

Disgusting and horrible. 


In Christ,
