Monsignor Bux, one of the few straight Catholics remaining around the Vatican, has publicly questioned whether the matter of the validity of Francis’ election should not be deepened.
The good man does not seem to have deep-seating reservations about the election in itself, reservations about which he obviously remained silent for years. Rather, he hints fairly transparently at the expediency matter: it is easier to get rid of the Evil Clown through the way of the illegitimate election than through any other way.
I allow myself to disagree, for the reasons that follow.
1. The matter of the validity of the election of a Pope is a mine field of procedural, subtle distinguos. It is made much more difficult from the obvious fact that Benedict does not question Francis’ legitimacy. It is difficult even to think of an “antipope” to whom the alleged Pope is not even anti; that is, in no antagonism or conflicting claim whatsoever. You simply can’t reasonably claim that a Pope who wanted to abdicate just did not want to.
2. Alternatively to and together with the “Benedict did not know what he was doing” argument, to start the procedural quibbles now means to undermine every future papal election. By every new election, one or three cardinals violating the secret of the conclave and stating that yes, they reached agreement to allow the election of Pope Pius XIII would, then, allow liberal cardinals to promote, and the press to ask, the deposition of said Pope Pius XIII. This causes infinitely more damage than a couple of old fags plotting to have a Pope agreeable to them; something, by the way, which has always happened and will always happen, because this is the reality of human nature. It really took a V II Pope of the naivete of JP II to establish stupid rules everyone but him knew would never be followed, opening a can of worms of gigantic proportions for the joy of the lovers of quibbles and enemies of reality. Still, as always, ecclesia supplet and the Pope will always be the one whom the entire Catholic planet sees as the Pope; or, if you prefer, common sense will always prevail. Mind, the same applies if one uses the argument that Benedict never really abdicated: around half the Cardinals are illegitimate ones.
3. Monsignor Bux’ way is in no way easier than a proclamation from the side of the Cardinals of papal heresy. Actually, it is more difficult and infinitely more messy. What is easier, to persuade a Cardinal to go against the Pope because of obvious heresy, or because of a procedural quibble? What would the faithful more easily understand: that the Cardinals want to depose the Pope because he is a damn heretic, or that they want to depose the Pope because three or four old fags bragged about their own vote-swaying ability and/or the man who wanted to adbicate was wrong about his very will to abdicate?
4. What happens when Benedict dies (which can be any day now): will they decide that at this point Benedict has most certainly relinquished the keys of peter to Francis, or will every Cardinal not so inclined become, as he well should at that point, a de facto Sedevacantist? What will, then, those very same factual Sedevacantists do when a new conclave is elected: reject it because many of the Cardinals were appointed by a Pope whose elections might be procedurally null and void, or who was not the Pope because Benedict was the real one? And the conclave next? And the next? Does Monsignor Bux understands that he is, albeit unwittingly, undermining the legitimacy of every future Pope in the eyes of the very Catholic faithful?
This all just makes no sense. It is like having an elephant in the room and, instead of proceeding to remove the elephant, engaging in endless sophistry about whether the truck driver who transported it had a valid driving license. Remove the damn elephant, for crying out loud!
The Pope is a heretic. This is the problem, and nothing else.
You deal with a heretic Pope the way this was done in the past: you challenge him and, if he does not recant, you depose him and let the mess ensue that God obviously has decreed should ensue, then open strife is infinitely better than acquiescence to a heretical Pope. After which, let everyone call “schism” as much as he wants: there will be those who are with Christ and those who are against, period.
Monsignor Bux’ hypothesis does not help, and it makes things worse.
The solution to the current heresy is the challenging of a heretical Pope as heretical.
Not difficult to understand.
Nothing new, either.
I was reading one of the several great books I have from the great Dominic Garrigou-Lagrange, and one part struck me with renewed impact: whenever we ask a Saint for his intercession he will, provided our petition is a legitimate one, intercede for us with Christ. Every. Single. Time.
Now: I knew this; as, I am sure, many of you know. But the consciousness of certain facts of our wonderful Catholic religion slide in the background with the time, and they need – at least as far as I am concerned – to be periodically refreshed and given new life.
Think of it. Think of how big a deal this is. Do not fall for the Protestant “Christ is my buddy” ruse. Catholicism is a huge cooperative endeavour, and it is meant to work that way.
Make it a habit to confide your sorrows and direct your honest, legitimate requests to your favourite Saint, and of course to Maria Mediatrix, every day. Bask in the beauty of this daily consolation. Let your hopes, your aspirations and, if need be, your tears reach those in Heaven who love you and whom you trust. They will hear you every single time, and they will not fail to help you every single time.
Remember: you have friends in high places.
Gayrdinal Tobin (he of “Nighty-night baby, I love you”-tweet fame) was accosted by a journalist asking him about both the tweet and the Italian actor who has been living at his rectory until people found out.
Not surprisingly considering the way these people feel completely insulated from us (straight) mortals, the man still had not even a fake excuse as to exactly why an actor would live in his rectory. I know, it is difficult to even invent one; but you would think the man feels the need to fabricate something to give at least an appearance of decency.
The lack of even the pretence of an explanation is, to me, indicative of the mentality of these people: they feel unassailable.
When a Cardinal invites a young, attractive Italian man to live in his own place, imagine how many people must know. Gayrdinal Tobin obviously did not care about any of that. It is not only the sodomy in itself; it is the chutzpah, the almighty arrogance of thinking he can just do what he wants and does not own an explanation to anyone – much less to God in Whom he obviously does not believe -.
The same mentality is at play in this impromptu interview. The man is sent out in order to give the thinnest varnish of decency to the matter; but clearly, Gayrdinal Tobin does not feel that anything more than this is required. He does not owe any explanation to us straight underlings as to why he had a male mistress living in his own rectory, nor does he have to prove that a clearly homoerotic tweet was not sent to him.
This guy needs to be added to the very long list of Gayshops and Gayrdinals who needs to be defrocked when sanity comes back. The shame of the Church in the early XXI Century will be remembered in one thousand years, just as we remember today the degree of corruption pervading the Church in the time of St Peter Damian.
It is good that these perverts are so stupid that they do not even feel the need to give some covering to their perversion. It will make it so much easier to get rid of them when the time comes. It will also make it much easier for countless prosecutors in the US and elsewhere to understand the net of complicity and mutual blackmail that has kept the homo lobby together for several decades. It is clear that one like Gayrdinal Tobin will never be able to do anything sensible against any pervert, communist or thief among the clergy of his diocese. He will also have to toe the liberal line in order to avoid waking up one morning and find oneself outed by the people he has displeased. His disgusting proclivities will make him totally unable to work as a priest, much less a bishop or cardinal.
Nighty-night, Your Gayce.
We want you gone.
I have written very recently a blog post wondering whether the corrupt, faithless US Bishops would side with the Pope is his stonewalling of the investigation against PervChurch,or would do the liberal thing and bow to the world, defying his order.
Turns out they choose to stonewall with the Pope.
Now, in my simple world “transparency” means that you make things transparent. Something very bad has happened, and it is therefore fitting that the background of the events be revealed as much as possible. You would think that people talking all the time about how they failed the faithful and promising to engage for them at every breakfast, lunch and dinner time would get this.
Er, no. Transparency is something you talk about. That’s it.
Now, everyone with an IQ bigger than the size of his shoes knows that the Bishops aren’t avoiding to release information so that they can investigate more thoroughly than the public could do. No, they are keeping information away from you so that they can a) protect the vast number of people implicated in the protection and enabling of Cardinal McCarrick, b) avoid the unearthing of a vast, vast homosexual clerical net inside and outside of the Vatican, and c) pretend that they are acting against clerical abuse when they are, in fact, consolidating it and helping it to fester inside and even at the very heart of the Church.
If you thought that the US Bishops would put themselves at the head of the movement (not because of concern for the victims or desire to do Christ’s work; but merely in order to avoid the donations drying out) curb your enthusiasm, because I don’t think that this is going to happen. These people are, evidently, too compromised to risk any degree of openness.
The solution, at this point, is the handcuffs. I hope AGs all over the Country will soon start to treat the US Bishops like the organised criminal ring they are. Let them feel the cold metal on their wrists, and see whether this helps to, as they say today, “facilitate” a change of attitude.
Make purple the new orange.
The total rottenness of this papacy is perfectly mirrored by the total rottenness of our bishops and Cardinals. With few exceptions, they are complicit in everything that is disgusting within today’s Church. We should call for the destruction of this evil cabal of perverts and their enablers, and welcome the uproar and scandal that would cause. This is the sort of scandal that actually helps repairing the Church.
Lock them up.
They will sing like gay canary birds.
The Evil Clown has just given another demonstration of his immense, legendary arrogance and stupidity by ordering his US Bishops to postpone until February the adoption of measures aimed at providing a structured procedure and, in general, accountability for the behaviour of bishop.
This is not even being tone-deaf. This is, purely and simply, spitting in the face of honest Catholics the world over, something the man clearly enjoys doing.
Can you imagine Ratzinger doing something even remotely similar to this? The cries of crucifige! would be heard on Mars!
The Pope being, instead, a damn protocommie enemy of all that is good and holy, I imagine the outcry will be limited to the Catholic camp, the MSM making all they can to give this astonishing scandal as little relevance as possible, hoping that if gets forgotten altogether. Make no mistake, it won’t.
It seems to me that the man is getting even more stubborn and more childish as years go by, delighting in what even a functional retard like him must know will cause a huge outcry; still, choosing to abandon himself to his tantrum like the spoiled old brat he is.
It is particularly good, and not a little spicy, that Archbishop Vigano’ denounced Francis and invited the US Bishops to disobey to him; which, frankly, would be quite a funny thing to behold. If it happens, if would actually give another demonstration that the world, not Catholicism, is the religion of these people; who did not bat an eye for Amoris Laetitia, the heresy about Capital Punishment and all the other antics, but dare to openly disobey the Pope when the tenets of the XXI Century and the donations from wealthy sponsors are on the line.
Ass them, and ass Francis.
There is no way you can fail in your role as a bishop and remake a new virginity for yourself when the collection plate is endangered.
A Dutch “doctor” is going to be prosecuted in the Netherlands, a Country where the practice of euthanasia has been legal since 2002.
The details I have read were quite something: old patient suffering from dementia is given a poisoned coffee by Dr She-Goebbels. As the poor patient makes resistance to further “treatment” (possibly noticing the effect of the poison, or somehow sensing Dr She-Goebbels was in “executioner mode”) , Nazi doctor asks Nazi relatives to restrain patient whilst she finishes the job. It truly is like a scene from “Frantic”.
This is what Post-Christian Europe has become. Can you imagine a family in, say, 1958 – any family whatsoever, and be it the most wicked in the Netherlands – where the family helps the killing of their own relative by the hands of a state doctor?
People talk a lot about “humanity”, or being “humane” to people. The word is deceptive.
It is Christ who gives us our “humanity” in the way it is intended here. Without Christ, humans become literally inhumane. From the practice of the Suttee among the Hindu to the atrocities of the Aztec “religious” practices, ending with the Gulags and the Holocaust, we see time and again of what atrocities humans become capable, whilst considering them part of the orderly life of “decent” people.
Meet Apocalypto, XXI Century.
Where people think they are so much more advanced than their Christian forefathers, whilst holding their elders so that the doctor can kill them.
I have written only yesterday about what a positive outcome the Mid Term election have had for us. I have mentioned, among other things, possible new appointments for the Supreme Court, now made much easier than when you have to depend for reptiles a’ la Collins and Flake to push the vote through.
Wednesday wasn’t an easy day for Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and God knows she does not have very many of those left.
In the morning, she must have woken up to the news that Trump has the Senate now even more in his grip. Farewell, residual hopes of being able to retire knowing that another feminist witch will take your place. Plus, it will not be easy to retake the majority even in 2020, with Trump himself on the ballot box. This makes for likely another four years of waiting (and a lot of sleeping…).
In the evening, another sign of how fragile the situation of the Dems has become. She fell in her own office (not, mind, on the stairs. She fell on a level surface) and fractured three ribs as a result.
What this tell me, and everybody else, is that the woman is too fragile to exercise her duties. After the healing process (which will be long and painful; broken ribs are a nasty business) she will have to go on almost in zombie fashion, outing herself even more as the selfish, partisan liberal activist all reasonable people know she is; or realise that her time as a judge is up, and she will not have the opportunity to pick a time convenient to her for her retirement.
Once again, we see how important it was for us to not only retain, but strengthen our majority in the Senate. Let us count:
Bader Ginsburg: 85 and three broken ribs.
wise wide Latina): 64, but rumoured to have massive diabetes issues.
These are three low hanging fruits Trump might be able to pick and take away from the enemy. Plus:
Thomas: 70 and a great man. If he were to resign this would give us more dominance still, and a conservative on his seat for likely several decades. But it does not have to be, as the man could likely weather another 6 years of Trump and (God Forbid!) 8 years of some Democrat president and still be able to resign with the right conditions.
It is truly great that we could make our position in the Senate stronger, and it was very smart of Trump to make of the Senate one of the central points of his electoral campaign.
We might have truly great days ahead of us.
No, it wasn’t the historic triumph that would have consigned Triumph to the legend of the United States. But it wasn’t bad at all. Actually, for a Catholic, it was great news.
I thought Trump could keep the House even after being elected with a majority in both of them. But this is because I have great confidence in the exceptional capacity of this man, not because it would have been a defeat if it had gone otherwise. Miracles don’t happen every two years, apparently.
In recent times the feat has proved very difficult. Clinton got elected in 1992 with both branches of the Congress and lost both in 1994, leaving more than 50 congressmen on the ground. Obama got elected with both branches in 2008 and was trounced in historic fashion in 2010, losing more than 60 congressmen and several senators. Besides the obvious mistakes they made, it is not easy to persuade the electorate to leave all Washington power in the same hands with a first mandate president. It requires a massive ability to swim against the tide.
Trump almost achieved this, as the differential in house seats is due to a small oscillation of votes the wrong way. It could have been a total triumph. It still was a very satisfactory evening for us, much better than for the Democrats. Astonishingly, even they understand it. We are not euphoric. They are somewhere between disappointed and depressed.
For us Catholics, the most important issue is to do with judicial appointments at the Supreme Court and below. In that regard, we are now in a much stronger position. From what I read around, it would even appear that the dynamics of the 2020 elections make it probable the senate majority will be maintained beyond that date. This means, assuming a victory of Trump in 2020, four more years of sound judicial appointments, including any seat on the Supreme Court that should become free.
Breyer is 80, Bader Ginsburg 85. You do the math.
Yes, losing the House will be a nuisance. If the Dems decide to be stupid, we will have two years of tantrums and committees making a lot of noise and producing nothing of substance, after which it is likely the American people might well put an end to their very thin majority as Trump leads the Country to a landslide in 2020. If they decide to be reasonable, we will have some form of collaboration on taxes, health care and co that will not impact what is most important to us: the religious issues like abortion and the perversion of family and marriage.
The Wall can be dealt with with executive orders if Trump decides to do it. A great tax reform has already been passed, that will be the legacy of the Trump years in economics matters. The individual mandate is a thing of the past. It’s not that you need any great new legislative accomplishment to keep Making America Great Again.
To look at the new freedom Trump has, observe how Sessions was made to resign yesterday already. You may or may not disagree with him on the qualities of the man, but he moved now because he now knows that his replacement will sail through the Senate hearings without too much fuss and with the votes already in the bag. Three months ago, it would have been another Circus Schumer.
This was not the great news we were hoping for. But it is good news nevertheless. Trump can swim against the tide, in the presence of an extremely hostile press environment and ostracised by the Tech Giants, and deliver for us.
What he can still not do is deliver miracles on a consistent basis.
For that, however, you should not blame him, but the American people.
During a medical emergency at a Trump rally in Missouri, the crowd spontaneously started to sing Amazing Grace.
Instead, Democrats think they are “punished with a baby”.
The vote is today.
Please go and vote not only for those wonderful U S of A in which you are privileged to live, but for us Europeans and for all decent people everywhere, because a successful Trump Presidency generates the Salvinis and Bolsonaros we so urgently need.
The election day is rapidly approaching and it seems to me that, like in 2016, massive gaslighting is going on. Make no mistake: the polls will be slightly “adjusted” to make them more in line with what those who have eyes to see are seeing on the ground, but the attempt to demoralise Republican voters is going on until the very end.
My suggestion to my readers is that they do not focus on polls anymore (biased almost always anyway) and focus on the growing data available from the early vote.
Without being complacent, I would say they are more than good.
I would like to suggest to my readers two sites I have found extremely useful to follow the intricacies of the early vote and to immunised against the liberal poll propaganda machine.
The first is the excellent Last Refuge/Conservative Treehouse, a site run by a man (who writes under the name of Sundance) who should really be in office. I spent the election night following this site, and it saved my sanity in those difficult ours, unmasking the lies of the official media several hours before the facts caught up woth them all (includes Fox News, of course).
The second is the Twitter feed of the excellent Larry Schweikart.
Mr Schweikart does not really care much for polls, but for the data on the ground, and he is very good at finding and analysing them.
Please write in the comment section internet sites you know that focus specifically on early vote/election data, so that come Tuesday we have more ways to avoid the gaslighting.
Good people need to go to vote. They really do.
However, if things keep going this way I make an easy prediction: several more Senators and we still get to keep the House.
Pray, but vote.
I received this comment from reader Kate R.
I found it so beautiful that I think it deserves a blog post all of itself.
Kate R. is writing about Donald John Trump.
He is a force of nature, and we thank God for him daily. His daily itinerary is on our news feed, and how he does all that he does, well it can only be God Who sustains him. It is a constant schedule of demanding activities. I wouldn’t last one week and I’m significantly younger than he.
We knew God gave him to us. He was an answer to prayer and exactly what we needed. We wouldn’t change a thing about him. That he is a conservative is unbelievable. That he is complete man of the people, he CARES, is incredible. That he loves our nation and people is undeniable. He wants to do good. And he can, he has unparalleled tenacity, the ability to just shrug off, at least publicly, hateful people who want to thwart him. We are concerned about civil war in these United States. We’ve never seen the venom and threats we do now, even from insignificant Hollywood worms. How dare they. President Trump was validly elected. Sixty three million Americans voted for him, and he is still filling stadiums with 20,000 needing to be turned away!
God bless him and keep him, may He continue to protect and guide him. Amen. And may Americans still be smart enough to realize real danger is now coming in the form of the Democrat party, which should better be called the Communist Party.
It occurs to me that I do not pray enough for the health and success of this great man.
And it seems to me that the world is only now beginning to discover that this man truly is a legend in the making.
Indeed: God bless him and jeep him, may He continue to protect and guide him.
I must admit: since the confirmation of the great Brett Kavanaugh I have been breathing a lot more easily. Firstly, because this will make “change” (the real one) much easier, particularly if Justice Roberts doesn’t start to move to the left, fancying himself the new “swing vote”. Secondly, because the obscene circus created by the Democrats has actually worked for us, helping many Americans to understand what a bunch of ruthless, bastard, mob-inciting and mob-driven demagogues and opportunists now controls the party.
However, all this will count for nothing unless people actually not only go out and vote, but encourage their friends and family to do the same.
Early voting is underway in many States (and, from what I can follow, things are actually going pretty well; particularly if you look at the actual early vote statistics and ignore the fake news aka polls; but hey… don’t say it around too much…), but in order to make of this a victory it is really necessary that the a massive push follows the encouraging early data.
I define victory as: a) solid majority in the Senate that makes us not dependent from snakes in the grass a la Murkowski and Collins, and b) at least a tiny majority in the House that prevents the Dems from staging the next circus with endless investigations against Trump. This seems well achievable to me (and more than this could be achieved) if there is a real mobilisation of the sane part of the Country.
In the end, we must realise that the struggle never ends. The glorious victory in 2016 must be protected and helped to consolidate. The enemy is almost as strong as ever, and he is certainly more determined to destroy everything we hold sacred than he ever was.
Please do what you can to persuade one person besides you to vote, offer to accompany/drive them to the polling station if you can, phone/text/app those you know or suspect uncertain or not motivated.
A lot is at stake, and even a man of amazing energy and purpose like Trump will find it difficult to make America great again whilst fending off the countless committees and various initiatives led or encouraged by screeching harpies (talking to you, Maxine!) with the sole purpose of making life as hard as possible for him. This is as un-american as it gets, and every decent American should feel his blood boil at the very thought of the likes of Pelosi and Waters working against American values day in and day out; profiting that many have the right thinking, but were too lazy to get up early and go to the polling station before driving to work, or the like.
The entire world looks at the United States. The election of Trump already brought to Europe such a yield of sanity that it would have been difficult to imagine just a couple of years ago. The continuation of this process will not fail to have a ripple effect in Europe. If, God willing, abortion is curtailed in the US in the next 5-10 years (how do you feel today, Msss Bader Ginsburg? Yes? Are you sure?) I can’t imagine that Europe will be many years (five, ten at the most) behind.
Please vote and make people vote.
MAGA/KAG, one good Catholic at a time.
So, what has the Gaynod just given us?
Firstly, it has given us the pathetic spectacle of a bunch of sad puppets of a mad Argentinian dictator going around with their rhetoric of “listening to the young” and “walking together”, abdicating to their role as shepherds as they extol the virtues of being, actually, clueless, because not instructed by those who should do so. Gayrdinal Tagle actually choking the tears as he explains to us the shocking revelation of talking to young people really says it all. Freddie Mercury himself would have considered the spectacle too gay for words.
Secondly, it has given us the – broadly speaking – utter failure of the vast push on perverted behaviour that was, most certainly, intended as the main scope of the entire exercise. Not, mind, because of the faint meowing of those bishops who, at times, still remember that they are supposed to be Catholics and are, at least, straight; but rather because in the current climate of widespread revolt against HomoChurch, the Evil Clown has deemed it more expedient to postpone that for a bit. This is what he customarily does, by the way, as we have seen with the first Gaynod he called: he does not dare to run too big a risk, and is content with demolishing the Church one bit at a time if there are no feasible alternatives. Yes, there is in the final document some faint echo of what the Synod was supposed to become, but it isn’t much and it’s not worth reading anyway.
Thirdly, the Gaynod has given us another glimpse of the stupidity and effeminacy of this sad bunch of cretins: the blood-curling video of them “spontaneously” “dancing” at the end of the Gaynod actually perfectly describes how these people see themselves: a bunch of old men without anything to say, much less to teach; conscious of how deeply despised they are; unable to understand what their role and function is supposed to be; ashamed of their position of primacy in the Church, a position they know perfectly unjustified; terrified of doing anything that could seem stiff or unkind; and trying to be “relevant” by actually pretending to be what they are not: young, and connected to the people.
What a bunch of sad, old queens. It is as if the old men at the Politburo had danced with a bunch of factory workers in order to show that they are near to the Proletariat; only, even those corrupted individuals were far too intelligent, and far too manly, for something like that.
Forget the Gaynod in all, but the mockery of those who deserve to be mercilessly punished for their dereliction of duty, when not utter betrayal of all they should stand for. Focus on what is important now.
Over to you, Attorney Generals of the United States of America.
Let us get on with the serious business.
Great news yesterday morning (here in Europe) as Bolsonaro’s victory was officially announced.
Bolsonaro’s socialist opponents have pledged to take to the streets on Tuesday in force to express their opposition to his election. Many are fearful he will roll back the legislative accomplishments of former administrations with new policies such as the expansion of the military, cracking down on crime, expanding gun rights, pulling Brazil out of the Paris Climate Agreement, and blocking all attempts to legalize abortion.
(Great platform, Jair!)
This reminds me of the “not my President” pathetic children’s tantrum after Trump was elected. This is, also, another demonstration of the innate inability of the Left to simply respect Democracy.
Nowhere, in any Country where I lived in Europe, have I witnessed mass protests after an election. By definition, democracies call for everyone to accept the result of a fair vote. The idea of protest against the winner is, in fact, a protest against democracy.
Nor have the Brazilian leftists anywhere to hide: Bolsonaro has won with such margins that there is no doubt where the Country wants to go, and it is: as far away from Venezuela and as near away to sanity as possible.
We are seeing this more and more often: when all traditional German Parties pledge to not work against Alternative fuer Deutschland what are they doing, but undermining the very principle of Democracy as they declare a Party a non-Party and their voters non-voters? Granted, in Germany you don’t have mass demonstrations to protest the AfD going double digits just after a general election, but the underlying contempt for the worries of millions is just the same.
Losers keep losing, and marching. Sanity keeps coming back one election at a time. Yes, the road is a long one, but one cannot avoid seeing a Great Awakening going on, and may it long last.
For now, let us pray for a Great Sanity Offensive.
And let us enjoy the show of losers marching….
Great news from the otherwise predictably stupid document closing the predictably stupid Synod: the official FrancisCertification of Catholic Internet content is in the works!
This is really, really funny. The Catholic Fagarchy currently in power plans to reveal to all Catholics worldwide which sites are officially certified as “FrancisCatholic”. It is not known yet whether pictures of naked men will have to be there (the involvement of Fathers Rosica and Martin has not been detailed), but there is no doubt a substantial amount of FrancisGayness will be a requirement for the not-so-coveted certification.
Aleteia, Patheos, Crux and all the other rosewater “wannabe Catholic” sites – which are correctly Catholic only by mistake, or on occasion of important festivities – will, no doubt, proudly show their “FrancisCertificate” in a prominent spot of their homepage, thus outing themselves as toxic to every Internet surfer sincerely interested in Catholicism after a short period of orientation about the Catholic sites available.
We – those who take Catholicism seriously – will soon have our own “Not FrancisCertified” logo, also prominently displayed on our homepage. Ideally, some Gaynisterium at the Vatican will run a list of sites and blogs officially considered “fake”, thus greatly increasing the prestige of those authentically catholic sites and blogs therein contained. Not sure it will happen, but one can hope.
This will be great, great fun.
Really, the Gayrdinals and Gayshops have shot themselves in the bra with this. If they call authentically Catholic sites “Certified Catholic” they will have to explain why those same sites relentlessly attack Francis & his high-pitched troops of Gay Deceivers. If – as it is far more likely – they don’t, they will expose themselves as fake, subversive and, most of all, horribly stupid to all those really interested in Catholicism.
Look, dear Gayrdinals: the time when people cared a straw about what you considered Catholic has long gone, and it has gone exactly because of your demonstrated, appalling lack of Catholicism. As things stand, being “approved” by you means being suspected of paedophilia or, at least, sodomy by the right thinking crowd.
But you don’t get it, because you live in a stiletto-plagued, Catholic-free zone.
So go on.
Put us in some “condemned list”.
Make my day.
I thought the Sixties were long gone, but it is clear in some Asian Countries Sixty-Eight is raging now.
A Cardinal even mentioned as a possibility for the next Conclave’s choice (Please, Lord, no!) abandons every sense of shame and says that adolescent can teach him, and “life isn’t clear”.
My answers to the Cardinal.
First: you are a faggot, Your Gayce. Do you know that?
Second: Life is very clear, and our Catholic religion make sense of it all.
War, pestilence, famine.
Death, disease, old age.
Poverty, injustice, “inequality”.
For all of this, and much more, the Catholic Church has always provided wonderful answers, sanctioned by their coming from God, who loves us all. Countless generations of Catholics have gone through life in serenity through all their trials, and have died in the faith. They had shepherds who cared for them.
A Cardinal oblivious of the fact that the Church has the answers, and it is exactly his damn job to teach and defend them, is below even the level of childishness; he has descended into twin-turbo-faggotry.
Third: how can a man admitting his total ignorance of his job description and the fundamentals of his subject matter think he has any right to remain I do not say a Cardinal, but a priest? How can these people even show themselves in public without shame? You can take a heathen savage from the Amazonian Forest, and he would likely know more about life and death and the meaning of life than this embarrassing Gayrdinal.
“I am learning a lot”-Tagle should be defrocked and sent to some far away poor African Country, to work as a social worker whilst the Natives teach him the basics of Christianity.
This here is even worse than Francis. Yes, it’s possible! We have proof! And he is even young! Therefore, if the Cardinals elect such a tool to the Papacy prepare for a huge mess, because if Francis has not been pelted with foul tomatoes yet, this one here could be too much.
Please, Lord, save us from war, pestilence, flood and people like this little cretin.
And in the end, he did it.
Francis broke the last taboo of political discourse and called his Catholic enemies friends or enablers of Hitler.
I thought calling “walls” un-Christian was the bottom, but the man somehow manages to find a new low every couple of weeks.
For the record, populism in various guises gave us Andrew Jackson, Theodore Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan. It also gave us, in a way, Joan of Arc. But in the end, it is not about labels.
The populist movement we are witnessing now is the result of artificial, bonkers policies which a limited cabal of elected politicians is trying to impose on their voters. These policies are so out of touch with common sense, so imbued of a mixture of kindergarden do-goodism and surrender (for a price) to globalist enterprises that it is no surprise at all that, at some point, the voters start to wake up and react to the madness.
They also see very clearly where the interest of their alleged “betters” lie. In Germany, former Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder accepts an extremely well paid job for a company controlled by Gazprom. In the UK, failed wannabe fag Nick Clegg cashes in his check with Big Globalist Brother and takes a job as PR Honcho at Facebook. The elected politicians will ruthlessly lick the boots of big corporations, preparing a golden retirement for themselves whilst they ruin our Countries and threaten our Christian Civilisation. Merkel, always the hypocrite, says when she retires she wants to open a restaurant. We shall see.
Francis does not get this, because he is dumb. He has strained all his scarce neurons in his youth learning a destructive ideology and is now unable to see past it, not even after decades of failure. And he hates you, he hates you as a Catholic with a hatred I bet not even five and a half years of insults can convey.
You are the Hitler, Frankie dear. You, not we, are the menace to Christian civilisation. Leave Trump, Salvini and Orban alone, do us a favour and retire back to Argentina, where you will be able to play armchair revolutionary all you want until Satan comes by to collect you.
Hitler, my foot.
I can’t believe the amount of rubbish I am reading about the alleged plight of the members of the “caravan” now trying to subvert sovereignty and logic with a well-orchestrated, obviously well-funded March Through Mexico. If they are so desperate, how can they march through such an immense Country? If they are persecuted in their own Country, why not seek asylum in Mexico? If the situation is so dire, why almost no women and children among them?
The reality is that in fact there is almost no pretence anymore that these people need “asylum”. The motives are purely economic (for the marchers) and political (for their globalist sponsors and the Democrats), and everyone knows that, though the asylum stuff is mentioned here and there for the benefit of the dumb.
There is nothing wrong, and much right, with having frontiers and walls. Rome, the very epicentre of Christianity, never considered them “unchristian ” in any way, shape or form. In all Christian ages, all over Christianity, boundaries of all sorts, clearly including walls , were considered the way to go to protect those inside the community from threats coming from outside. Invasion through peaceful means is still an invasion, with the difference that the invaders do not even need to use weapons. The Barbarians would have been extremely happy to enter the Roman Empire as “peaceful asylum seekers”; however, not even the late Roman Empire was so dumb to allow them to enter at will in the name of “brotherhood”. Perhaps they had bishops who believed in God instead of atheist fags dressed in purple.
From the Leonine Walls to the countless example of fortified cities in Christian Europe, walls have always been a staple of Christian civilisation. A bishop telling you that boundary control is unchristian is a bishop who betrays Christianity himself, and deserves to be parachuted in the midst of fanatic Muslims in order to experience “meeting the other” in a very personal, authentically Christian-free way.
Who knows, it might give the one or other a keen appreciation of structures meant to keep the undesirable out.
The devastation caused by this Pontificate does not seem to abate. Actually, my impression is that as the scandals deepen, the Evil Clown might be tempted to make a “forward escape” and double down on the “innovation”; hoping, in his immense stupidity, that the wreckage of the Church will make people forget the countless abuses, cover-ups and homosexual infiltration for which even he himself has to answer.
I read with dread that a new “youth Mass” is about to be unveiled. I have no doubt it will be obscene. But one who does not genuflect in front of the Blessed Sacrament can’t be expected to care for the Mass, can he….
Francis is like a South American Dictator who, faced with accusations or corruption, proceeds to a currency reform propelling inflation to 3000% a year. It’s just that way of thinking: ignorance mixed with arrogance, and all of it wrapped in stupidity.
Francis is, as always, wrong.
The secular world out there does not care for the Liturgy. It cares for paedophile priests. Francis could transform the Mass into Cirque Soleil and at this point it would merely register on the liberal media before the next wave of revelations from the numerous investigations ongoing forces them to put the homopaedo scandal front and centre.
The secular world is a monster with two heads. The first wants to destroy Christianity using FrancisChurch. The second wants to destroy the Church Herself. We have had abundant evidence in the last months that the second head wins every time, and the attacks on Francis will become more and more obvious as his stupid behaviour makes him useless – actually, counterproductive, and poisoning – as the beacon of a “new”, “listening” Church.
An aider of paedophiles isn’t a great ambassador for liberal reforms, is he now?
And so this Evil Clown goes around hating the Church and everyone who loves Her, and trying to destroy as much as he can in the time left to him. It is as if God were now not only punishing us with a bad Pope, but stomping our backside with a Francis, and deservedly so.
At this point, those who still have not understood what an Evil Clown this guy is stink of Reprobation to the very sky. So if you still are one of those cretins calling him “sweet Peter on earth” you better be very worried.
I have been pointing out for some time now the increasing censure and political activism of social media platform dominant in their own segment: Twitter, Facebook, YouTube immediately come to mind.
The censorship frenzy, ongoing for years now, has lately reached a new level with a Soviet-Style censorship of even mere facts, when Twitter locked LifeSiteNews for posting a statistic they did not like.
One would have to be a six-years-old in order not to understand what a threat this is for the free circulation of not only opinions, but mere facts within Western Societies.
The fact that these are private companies, which can therefore make their own rules, does not apply anymore. These company detain a quasi-monopoly on certain channels of information, and there is no provision to ensure that they do not abuse it. Standard Oil was also private, and still it was broken up. Mind, though: Standard Oil was never so dangerous for the Western Democracy as these social media platforms are.
One solution would be to strictly separate the editorial from the platform function. If, say, Twitter were obliged to publish everything, with the publisher of the content made responsible for the content of his own tweets, the problem would be, at least in principle, solved. However, this platform would still be too powerful to avoid the risk of censorship sneaking in with some other pretext (are we are seeing, in fact, now).
The other solution is, in my eyes, the most obvious and, in the end, the unavoidable one: these platforms must be broken up, allowing a number and possibly a multitude of separate companies, all obliged to work merely as platforms, but still without any editorial power or editorial responsibility, and all forced to allow on each platform the publishing of content published on another platform.
If I write a blog post on this site, it must be possible for my readers to divulge it on Platform 1, and for some of the readers to echo it on platform 2, and for others on Platform 3, 4 and 5. Twatter, Twetter, Twitter, Twotter, Twutter and a dozen of other companies would therefore be interconnected by the common accessibility of message, and would be free from any legal responsibility concerning what is published on them. This responsibility would be the one of the entity that has published the original message and the person who has re-tweeted it, and it would be for the police to make the investigations of the case if criminal laws have been impinged.
If a pervert starts groping men on the underground it is not fair to make the company running the underground trains responsible for it. The underground is open to everyone, as it should be. He who commits a criminal offence using that particular transportation mode will answer for it himself.
This is no rocket science. It is solid common sense, that should be shared by everyone who has an interest in the free circulations of ideas. The quasi-monopoly of (private) newspapers in Germany greatly facilitated the rise of Nazism. The lesson should not be forgotten.
A functioning market must always be marked by healthy competition in every sector of activity. When positions of quasi-monopoly have been established, the market forces have been subverted and must be restored. In this case it is not only a matter of healthy economic development, but of maintaining the free circulation of ideas. It is naive, and actually disingenuous, to think that the private ownership of these companies should protect them when they become a danger not only for the markets, but for our Western democracy itself.
Twitter & Co. are a greater danger to Western Democracies than Saddam of North Korea could or will ever be.
If you don’t understand this, you don’t understand freedom.
Pope Francis The Evil Clown has finally accepted the resignation of Cardinal Wuerl. Only, in a way, he hasn’t, because the man remains in place trying to ensure that his successor ruins him as little as possible. Already this tells you all the stupidity of a Pope who still does not get that this is not the time for empty words and little clerical amateur maneuvers.
You have a Cardinal who is behinds decades of cover-ups concerning his own perverted priests, and clearly a pervert himself according to now multiplying reports from serious people. What does a stupid Pope does? He praises the “nobility” of the man in admitting his “mistakes”.
Wait a moment there. The man even set up an entire web page trying to do exactly the contrary! His admission of guilt is not the result of a sudden change of heart, it is the result of a mountain of evidence accumulating against him! The hypocrisy and clerical thinking were seldom more evident than in the case of this miserable old queen. That this should be deemed worthy of praise is another indication of the moral bankruptcy of a Pope who, I am now pretty sure, did not live one day of his own miserable life as a honest Catholic.
In FrancisWorld, “nobility” is when your desperate, weeks-long attempts to deny a mountain of evidence against you finally end in inevitable defeat. Go figure.
I also note that the Cardinal has not been forced to admit his homosexuality, thus continuing a cover up of the real cause of his being entangled in a net of paedohomo connections with men who could have easily ruined him and who could, for this reason, ask or demand the protection of the powerful closeted Archbishop and then Cardinal.
In a word, Francis keeps doing what every other prelate with an IQ lower than his shoe size would do: he keeps denying, minimising, obfuscating, and praising the culprits. The man must think he still lives in Argentina.
What is fun in all this tragedy is to see this old commie digging his own grave day in and day out, adding a new error every day to the old ones; unable to change course because too dumb to do anything else than what he has always done, and unable to accept the reality that he is being judged (see what I am doing here?) as one of the dumbest, most corrupt, most horrible Popes in history.
Keep digging, Frankie dear. Go on now, canonise “Che” Guevara! Won’t be so much worse than Paul VI or Romero!
It’s not only that you have no clothes. It is that you stand in the middle of the crowd in your lewd nakedness, and insult those who say you are naked telling them they are making the work of the devil.
Go on, Frankie dear. Keep demolishing your Pontificate.
It will be sad, but also fun, to watch.
Have you ever played The Cancer Game© ? I have played it many times now, and I must say I found it very beneficial.
The cancer game is played in this way: take time for yourself, and find a crowded spot in the place where you live. Then imagine that you have just been told by the doctor that you have an incurable cancer, and just a few months to live, perhaps five or six before having to enter a hospital.
Repeat this to yourself, many times, and let it sink in. Get in that state of mind.
And then observe the world around you.
You will see around you a world of beauty and wonderment. The great grace that is Life appears to you in all its splendour. The people walking around seem, in a way, all beautiful, but unaware themselves of their great beauty. The traffic, the honking cars, the noisy buses hit your senses like a beautiful movie, now sadly about to end but so intensely graceful. The sky above is so beautiful as it never was. The smells in the air so sweet of the sweetness of life, sprinkled everywhere by a good God of Whom most of those people you are observing are, actually, perfectly oblivious. Still, Grace is everywhere: in the face of the people, in the clouds above, in the restless movement that you see around you. It is as you had pierced the veil of your constant concerns and worries and planning and stopped to see the beauty of creation for what it is, now in the middle of it but also as a spectator about to take leave from the show. Again, you notice that Grace is what appears to shine everywhere and fill everything.
The Cancer Game© is, at its root, not new at all. Countless wise people have practiced it since the dawn of Christianity in one form or another. You can visit, in Palermo, a Capuchin monastery with thousands of skeletons in plain view along its rooms and corridors. The good friars have walked along those corridors for many centuries, and have been constantly reminded of their final destination. Wise good men, they were; unafraid of death, and healthily vigilant about their souls. Their game and mine are just variations of a simple thought: memento mori, probably best translated with “remember death”, though “mori” is obviously a verb (therefore, more like “remember the dying”).
We need to prepare ourselves for our death. We need to have death as a constantly present possibility in our life. Not only will this help us to develop a healthy fear of the Lord, but it will make the real news easier to digest if that is the kind of news we will, one day, receive. We will also (at least I certainly did) develop a keener appreciation for the gift of a healthy life, and for the beauty of life in general, for as long as it will please God to make both lasts.
No, you will not develop a cancer for playing The Cancer Game©. You will develop a cancer if the Lord has decreed, out of all eternity, that you should get one. And that, my friend, has already been decided for you even as you read this.
I suggest you play The Cancer Game ©, every now and then, when you have time and inclination. When the shivers down the spine cease it is a good sign that you are making progress. We are on this show for a short time only, and we might be told every day that our time is up.
Oh, the irony!
Pope Francis the Heretic is no trying to deflect the blame for the McCarrick & Co. HomopaedoScandal from himself and to direct it towards the man he himself has just canonised.
Mind: I am, like most real Catholics, persuaded that Francis’ Pontificate shows that those theologians who have always denied the canonisation as total certainty, as a sort of infallible statement that the canonised person is in heaven, are right. There is no other way to reconcile, otherwise, the Papal Moonbattery (inter alia) in matters of canonisations with the existence of a valid Papacy. In time, a healed Church will examine the matter of Francis’ canonisations and will probably toss them away en bloc, as it does not make sense to try to save the one or other strawberry from an otherwise clearly poisoned cake. For the moment I, as many others, refuse to consider the statements of a clearly heretical Pope as binding on myself in everything that is not in accordance with what the Church has always believed.
However, we must note the following:
- The extreme cowardice, a new low point even for Francis, of accusing dead Popes for his own criminal negligence and cover-ups.
- The inherent stupidity of the accusations now being concocted against JP II. Firstly, everyone who was breathing at the time could clearly see that “gaga” was the first word coming to mind whenever one saw the man on TV for at least the last ten years of his Pontificate, actually more. Secondly, whilst JP II was certainly too naive and innocent at times, and perhaps easily persuaded by people he should not have trusted, it is preposterous to think that JP II could promote McCarrick to a Red Hat in full knowledge of his acts. Thirdly, whilst there is no evidence whatsoever that JP II did this, we have a very compelling testimony, from a person above suspicion, with dates and exact reporting of actual conversation with Francis himself, that Francis did exactly this.
- As the Evil Clown tries to save his own Pontificate from exploding, he sinks it himself. What is a Pope worth, who first canonises one of his predecessors and then proceeds to besmirch his memory and show how un-saintly he actually was? What does this say of Francis’ canonisation process in particular, and of the way this Pope operates in general? If this is not a complete declaration of ineptitude and moral bankruptcy, what is?
- This is another evidence of the Pope’s atheism. If Francis had a shred of faith he would either not proceed to the canonisation of a man of whose saintliness he is not 100% persuaded, or he would never think of besmirching the memory of such a man. No, these are the actions of a faithless thug, surrounded by homos and seeing them – provided he is not one of them himself – as the basis of his own power, to be protected at no matter what cost.
This stupid Pontificate is now clutching at straws in order to save itself from certain drowning; and, the man being stupid, it is sinking in a way that makes it look exactly that: stupid from the beginning to the end, from paying a hotel bill for a hotel belonging to him to the wheelchairs, the humble cars, and all that stupid stunts only an idiot can think will help him in the long term.
I thank Providence for the way it is showing us what a toxic Pontificate we are dealing with. We must accept the punishment the Lord justly sent us as the deserved wages of more than half a century of rebellion. We keep our fidelity to the Church, and we deny our allegiance to any statement of this despicable man that does not reflect what we are obliged to believe anyway.
And we welcome, we welcome every new way in which Francis is atomising his own Pontificate as a little step toward the sanity which, one day, will not fail to return.
As happened some days ago with the terrifying episode of the witchcraft ferula, Pope Francis has given us another example of his utter lack of most elementary intelligence, coupled with an arrogance that defies imagination.
This excerpt from his latest book shows first of all that Francis has lived an entire life without knowing what Grace is. Seriously, this is stuff every Catholic boys knows perhaps not in elementary school, but certainly at Confirmation.
But then again this appalling ignorance shows the arrogance of the man. A man who does not care to show the world his ignorance of Catholicism, because to him it is far more important that you know how much he despises it. The man who has already objected to the Our Father now tries to remake the meaning of, very likely, the first praying words learned by every Catholic little boy and girl all over Catholicism.
Let me repeat this point so that it sinks in: it is very clear to Francis that he does not understand the basics of Catholicism. What he wants you to know is that he cannot even be bothered to learn anything about it, because he despises Catholicism so much that he wants you to know it is not worth the effort, and it is utterly inferior to his own blather about everything.
This is a consistent feature of this papacy: Francis explains to you what Catholicism really means, and it is never what Catholicism has always meant.
I am more and more persuaded that this man never had any faith. Born of a poor family and with little prospects in life, in a Country with paucity of opportunity and in which family, money and connections are pretty much everything, the man decided to scrounge an existence by attaching himself to a powerful and rich order; a course, this, that he deemed vastly preferable to a humble existence perhaps, at some point, graced (see what I am doing here?) with a wife and children and to be lived in humility and faith in the Lord. A course, however, even more understandable is he is, as he might well be, homosexual. In all cases, there can be no doubt that to a power crazed man like this one the possibility to enter an order that did not require power, money or political or other connections, but made one respected and one day, possibly influential, was vastly preferable to the existence of a lowly employee, married or not.
This explains both Bergoglio the Jesuit and Bergoglio the Arrogant. He lived out of the Church whilst he despised Her with a passion all his life. When he was put at the top, his lifelong resentment and his stellar arrogance created exactly what we are seeing now: the man who wants to explain to us, out of his own appalling ignorance, what “full of Grace” means.
It is so embarrassing it makes one cringe. But then again by now we are accustomed.
Hail Francis, full of shit.
I hope you die soon.
Cardinal Ouellet has answered to Archbishop Vigano’ and his answer is, if devoid of facts against the good Archbishop, even more spiteful than you would expect.
The main takeaway is that Ouellet does not deny the truthfulness of Vigano’s main charge: McCarrick was ordered to live a retired life by Benedict, and this was relaxed by Francis. However, he says he has not found any official document prescribing such behaviour (something, by the way, Vigano’ never maintained), which then would make Francis’ allowing McCarrick to fly around the world suddenly OK.
The Cardinal also launches a series of insults against Vigano’, culpable of just having listened to what the Pope said and having faithfully reported it, drawing the consequences from the events and asking such a shameless scoundrel to do the only decent thing and abdicate.
The Cardinal, and the Pope, thus stand naked in front of the just man they accuse and insult.
Note here: Vigano’ clearly reported that the Pope himself introduced the argument, asking him what he thought about McCarrick, to which Vigano’ responded with a clarity and energy that could never justify inaction. Therefore, Ouellet’s argument, that there were no official document mandating restrictions in McCarrick’s life and movement is no less than an admission of this willed inaction after the clear warning of the Archbishop.
Cardinal Ouellet is a rotten man; a man who, like many others, pretended to be somewhat conservative when this was convenient to him, only to sell out and become a part of Francis’ heretical machine when the heretics came to power. The very fact that Ouellet openly insults Vigano’ without being able to disprove any of his very reasonable statements, and actually providing evidence of Francis’ scandalous inaction, is a clear indication of the extent to which this man has sold his soul to Francischurch; but then the man also defended Amoris Laetitia and other heretical stunts, so this is par for the course.
The only argument that Cardinal Ouellet can try to make is this: Vigano’ is a complete liar; one who would invent a total lie out of thin air for the pleasure of taking down a Pope. One who would report conversations that never took place for reasons no one really understands. One, basically, not better than any pussy hat feminist inventing bogus charges against Brett Kavanaugh.
However, this one is not a pussy hat feminist, but an extremely respected man of God. He does not allege facts happened who knows when and where, but certainly decades ago. He reports date, place and exact content of his conversation with Francis. His accounts of the harsh confrontation with McCarrick by the previous Nuncio are substantiated by the Monsignor who was present at it. His account is recent, detailed, corroborated and very credible.
What has Cardinal Ouellet to oppose to it? Something along the lines of “you are a liar and an enemy of the Pope”. In fact, this is the only way anyone could believe Ouellet: persuading oneself that Vigano’ is a pussy hat clerical feminist harpy, suddenly starting to screech against Francis with bogus accusations.
A good man on the one side, a shameless thug on the other.
Pray for the end of this pontificate, and of people like Ouellet infesting the Vatican.
The morning after (in Europe) and I feel like Trump after being sworn President. I have said, and repeat here, that this was as important as having a Catholic as Pope, because this can actually do more to cleanse the Christian West than, at the moment, even a Catholic Pope would.
It seems to me that the generally excellent Nolte is infected by the “all is well that ends well”-mentality that is so easy in these moments.
Flake was a flake, a coward as always, and a very hypocritical one at that. The idea that a Senator should change his mind because two feminist witches scream at him on an elevator is below kindergarten level, and I actually think it was staged. Nolte’s argument, that it was the right thing to do because of the polls, is monstrous; it is exactly the same logic followed by the Democrats.
Senators must do what is right, screw the polls today, tomorrow and forever.
A just man was crucified for another week whilst her reckless accuser accumulated $1m on several go fund me accounts. Libelling people now makes you a lot of money. Hey, the polls say it’s fine.
Nor do I want to call Senator Collins innocent or even honest. Every word she said on the press conference could have been said one week before. She played a shameful game of self-aggrandising, by keeping all the Country in a suspense and then doing the only decent thing to do. She did that which dozens of her colleagues on the Republican side did without looking for a stage, without trying to look as the Saviour of the Fatherland at the eleventh hour. It is good etiquette and good against the Democrats to praise her now; but I hope that the Republicans never forget that this is a woman who first fuels a witch hunt, and then needs a week to discover that perhaps witch hunts are a tad wrong.
I hope Murkowski disappears into irrelevance as soon as possible, and that she gets recalled (I understand this is possible in Alaska) or substituted by the Governor (I understand this is, in theory, possible too). Compared to her, Stormy Daniels is a Catholic school girl. Her constituents held in utter contempt, she can even hope, now, that she will not have to suffer any consequences. If Alaskans keep her, they deserve her.
I despise Manchin, too. He has spit directly in the face of the voters of West Virginia, making extremely clear to them that they count for almost nothing, and he will throw them a bone only if this does not put him in a conflict with his real masters in Washington.
The lesson also applies to Heitkamp in North Dakota, McCaskill in Missouri, and Donnelly in Indiana. There is nothing like a moderate Democrat and if you vote for them, you poison your Country. I have a strong suspicion that all of them voted no to Kavanaugh because they know their scant chances of reelection are not worth the brownie points they can earn by toeing the Democrat line. Once again, their voters are irrelevant, only their own careers matter.
And as we are there, let us not forget those voters in Alabama who, too precious to vote for Roy Moore, allowed Doug Jones to be elected. How did Doug Jones vote? Thought so! Talking about cutting one’s nose to spite the wife.
US voters must stop seeking for perfection where victory is at hand. They must stop condoning atrocious political behaviour. They must, now, never forget and, starting in November, punish the party of the modern Salem Witch Trials (and the KKK, and Bill Clinton, and much beside).
And please stop praising Collins and Flake. They were part of the problem, and of the insanity, until two days ago; and I suspect they have backpedalled in the end only because they had nothing else to do if they want to have a future in politics or lobbying.
God bless America.
And God bless Justice Kavanaugh and the great, great Donald John Trump.
