It has been asked in the comments whether the Papacy will ever recover from the damage Francis inflicted to it. In my eyes, when we have the right Pope the Papacy will recover very, very fast.
People feel the need for a spiritual guide. Not only Catholics, but many Christians around the world yearn for a reassuring figure guiding the, in the end, most reassuringly permanent institution in the world. Imagine a new Pius, or a new Leo, unapologetically doing what a Pope is supposed to do. We would have a Trump-like reaction: the MSM would insult the man every day, and countless millions – possibly billions – of people would emit a big sigh of relief and think to themselves: “finally!”
Also, the Papacy is not simply another political institution. Its foundation in Christ makes it more resilient to the vagaries of time and troubles of the last occupant. Whilst it undoubtedly is a political office, it is first and foremost a religious one. It is like a big statue made of silver, ready to shine again once a good polishing has been applied.
The recovery of the Papacy has never been my concern and, in fact, if it had been I would have never shot at the disgraceful behaviour of Francis the way I did all these years. My concern is, in fact, another: where is the Pius, or the Leo, we need to get out of this? In a world where a wet kitten like Burke is taken as example of orthodoxy and courage, how can the Papacy recover its attractiveness and prestige? A Pope Burke would, as things stand now, merely slow the decline as he is eaten alive by the enemies of Christ because of his sheer lack of testosterone. Benedict 2.0. If we are lucky.
We don't have any use for a Pope Burke. I can't see, in the natural order of things, any hope around me for a Pope Pius or Pope Leo.
I would gladly set for a Pope Donald, one who is tough and always ready for a fight, whatever his private shortcomings.
He would repair a lot of damage, all right.
Trump's decision to appear live at the US March For Life shows once again a handful of very evident facts:
1. This President is way more Catholic than the Pope. As Francis invites us to “not obsess” about abortion, Trump actually does exactly that.
2. Trump engagement in favour of the Unborn is more than a mere slogan, as such a hard pro-life profile is not sure to bring him additional supporters. This is a man of integrity keeping his word, not an Auntie Merkel saying what is convenient on the day.
3. The cowardly US Bishops relentlessly working against the most outspokenly pro-life President since the Gipper show that they do not care about the unborn, and are perfectly at ease with the pro-death agenda of the Democratic Party. This, with the excuse of their socialist-spectacled decrying of “social injustices”.
4. The unborn US babies are, mostly, legal US citizen in fieri. Too much Stars and Stripes for the Democrats and their Bishops, I suppose. They prefer to let these oppressed, innocent US Citizen (in fieri) die, and prefer instead to import illegals from (let us say this again, because repetitive iuvant) shithole Countries, who then proceed to Somalise and Haitise the US as much as they can, perpetuating the power of the Democrats in the process.
5. Thank God for President Trump.
I welcome President Trump's “Shitholes” comment; and if he has not made the comment, I regret that he didn't.
One of the greatest things of this Presidency is the disregard for the increasingly more oppressive rules of political correctness, driving people to what is pure and simple denial of reality. Most sensible (not sensitive!) people would call, say, Haiti a shithole all right, and the more so when they want to make a forceful point. It needs a PC Libtard to see “racism” where the others see a simple reality. Libtards don't care for reality. They will excise from their consciousness and call “racist” every fact that threatens to destroy the stupid bubble in which they live.
This attitude is preventing us from saying things as they are in so many other areas, and when the language loses the sting the bad behaviour or bad situation is encouraged of perpetuated.
Sodomite, not “gay”. Adulterer, not “in an irregular relationship”. Perverted, not “gravely disordered”. Heretical, not “problematic”. And so on and so forth.
The refusal to call things with their own name (yes, shitholes too) is what has given us a society that encourages sodomy, has rampant adultery, think you can choose your “gender” and allow Francis to go on virtually unopposed and certainly not challenged at least by the clergy.
I look forward to more tweets like this one.
Don't want to be called a “shithole” by the President of the United States?
Try not to be one.
I never liked the expression “God Emperor” referred to Donald Trump; I never did it because, whilst having its obvious roots in the Roman Empire, it does sound vaguely blasphemous to these Christian ears.
However, Trump truly is a guy that seems to keep doing what he does so well (not only running a country, but enraging snowflakes whilst having a lot of fun in the process) with great energy even as a President.
It’s funny and ferocious. It’s sound common sense and ferocious mockery. It’s what other Heads of State don’t do, because they are too dumb and conformist for that, and could never pull it off the way Trump does. Trump is an oasis of sanity in a world run by conformist, incompetent nincompoops, the obvious product of the Age of Madness in which Western democracies have descended.
Dumb voters produce dumb leaders. It’s the bane of democracy.
Trump’s religion is Christianity, not global warming. This would be good enough in itself. But what is even funnier is to see this man having a laugh at the stupid priests of the new religion of non-existing “consensus” and even more absurd (an oxymoron is there ever was one) “settled science”, and enjoying “triggering” all those pothead and assorted retards of the vast Losers’ Galaxy.
Trump has remained Trump. He has not transformed himself into another tofuhead spouting platitudes. He keeps attacking, keeps provoking, and keeps having fun as he teaches Libtards how to think or, more likely, enjoys their inability to do so.
We need more of this on our side, too. The Catholic blog world keeps being too nice, too afraid of “offending”, too much concerned with polite discourse and with the gentlest rules of engagements. Our enemies don’t return the favour. Many more of us should forget the white gloves and start trolling these people relentlessly. If a President of the United States can do it, so can a humble blogger.
Thank God for this exceptional man. God willing, 2018 will bring not only more winning, but a lot of fun, too.
Yesterday it was one year from that wonderful, sleepless night I spent in front of my computer screen, enjoying (almost) every moment. What an unforgettable night. What joy to go to work without having closed an eye, but knowing that Armageddon was averted.
Imagine a Hillary Presidency only from the point of view of the Supreme Court: the Scalia substitution alone would have tipped the scale in favour of people with no decency and no God, but Baader Ginsburg would also have soon resigned, and possibly Kennedy, or Roberts, or both. Sotomajor has, it is rumoured, a big diabetes problem, and she might have been persuaded to resign, too. It would have been a complete remaking of the Country for who knows how many decades.
This is the by far most important aspect. But there are others. Trump has killed the Paris Agreement and the TPP, he is remaking Nafta, he is killing the entire environ-mentalist agenda, he is being vocally pro-life. The economy is marching forward and the stock exchange reflects the rosy prospects, indicating an easy win in 2020 unless the man loses his mind and starts to drift towards the “centre”. There is a new assertiveness abroad: Iran, North Korea, Syria: we finally have a POTUS again instead of a limp-wristed idiot completely out of his depth.
The initial movement has now become a true revolution, a revolution that supports Trump but does not depend on him. Alabama has shown in the most brutal way (assuming a Republican victory next month) what is to be done to be elected, and the ripple effect on future Senate races is already stunning. Virginia has shown that half measures will not do, and the RINOs might soon become an endangered species. The Second Amendment is stronger than it has been in a long time. The Country is visibly shifting towards sanity.
I forget a lot.
Certainly, not all has gone according to plan, but then it never does. I would have expected more energy in the matter of illegal immigration, but again this is mainly for the legislative power to start acting on. The Wall *is* coming. Obamacare *is* dying. The tax reform too.
One year later, I raise my eyes heavenward and thank a good and merciful Lord for the Rise Of The Deplorables, allowing not only the US, but the entire West not to be condemned to the Dictatorship of Godlessness.
What great, great gift Donald Trump is.
On this day, I want to renew my despise for, and my insults toward, the Sanctimonious Judases who would have preferred to see Hillary in power to satisfy their petty vindictiveness and their morbid desire to see everything crumble around them as they blame you for it. Despicable idiots. Enemies of everything that is good and holy. Tools of the devil. May God forgive them for having helped Satan in 2016. I will certainly not forget.
One year later, we look to the future with a renewed optimism, and we know that the Army of Christ is on the offensive where it counts most, the USA. We are still suffering on the papal front, where the situation is utterly dire. But it is fair to say that Trump will do for Christian values much more than Francis will ever be able to destroy.
Soldier on, my fellow Deplorables. Keep fighting the good fight, and keep supporting the right side. Never waiver. Pray for the swift departure (one way or the other) of RBG, Sotomajor, Kennedy and Roberts, and their substitution for justices in the mould of Gorsuch. They will readjust the country’s trajectory, and pave the way for a Christian generation after us.
Thank you, Lord, for Donald Trump, and for the Charge Of The Deplorables.
The words below (inconceivable from every Western European head of State or Government) show how far away Western Government have drifted from the Christian feeling and practice that is their very cultural matrix.
They also show the huge difference between the great Donald J Trump and the lesbian bitch who tought herself entitled to his office.
Now, therefore, I, Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim September 3, 2017, as a National Day of Prayer for the Victims of Hurricane Harvey and for our National Response and Recovery Efforts. We give thanks for the generosity and goodness of all those who have responded to the needs of their fellow Americans. I urge Americans of all faiths and religious traditions and backgrounds to offer prayers today for all those harmed by Hurricane Harvey, including people who have lost family members or been injured, those who have lost homes or other property, and our first responders, law enforcement officers, military personnel, and medical professionals leading the response and recovery efforts. Each of us, in our own way, may call upon our God for strength and comfort during this difficult time. I call on all Americans and houses of worship throughout the Nation to join in one voice of prayer, as we seek to uplift one another and assist those suffering from the consequences of this terrible storm.
Thank God for President Trump. I do not agree 100% with what he does or says, but I don’t want to even think where we would be now without this great man.
Whenever some adherent of the “religion of peace” blows up himself in the air or does something just as stupid, UK Muslim leaders are not slow in condemning, in very generic term, “violence”. The mention of “Muslim violence” is not really there. It's a very generic condemnation of bad behaviour “whenever it may come from”.
Neither the BBC nor the mainstream press have a problem with it.
It is, therefore, strange that when a death occurs in the course of incidents which saw violence on both sides, Trump should condemn one side exclusively.
Actually, Trump is far more justified than the above mentioned Muslim leaders, because in the latter's case the violence is undoubtedly all on our side, and in Trump's case this is not the case.
Trump is right also in the “terrorism” quarrel. The death in Charlottesburg is a mixture of heated spirits and road rage. Never in my life have I seen such an episode called “terrorism”, and I have seen a lot of it in several Countries. The fake news machine just does not want to stop.
And please leave poor General Lee alone. A wonderful soldier and patriot that every Nation would be proud to call his own, and an Abolitionist to boot.
One thing you can safely say of these liberals and assorted leftists is that, besides not being born geniuses, they are ignorant of their own history.
It has been announced today that President Trump has put an end to the madness of trannies in the army. Not only, mind, in combat roles, but in any capacity whatsoever.
Every sane person cannot but be pleased at the slow recovery of sanity the USA are attempting under President Trump. Not that the event in itself is anything world shattering. A functioning brain should be enough to prevent the situation that Trump he today corrected in the first place.
What is remarkable is the willingness to go against a madness now accepted as normality by vast swathes of the once Christian West.
Another day, another baby step toward ps normality under President Trump. No thanks to all the BeverTrumpers and the fake conservative Judases who would have accepted Mad Dyke Hillary at the White House.
Keep winning, President Trump. And please do not forget all those, like Jeff Sessions, who are your real strength.
It appears that justices of the US Supreme Court give a kind of solemn reception to their employees every 5 years in office : 5, 10, 15, and so on.
You will be pleased to know that Justice Kennedy, who also follows the custom, has just given such a reception, for year… 29.
It does not take a genius to understand what this means.
God willing, the announcement will be made tomorrow. This would be huge.
Mind, a huge battle will ensue as there will be no shortage of RINO Senators reflecting whether it is not better to profile themselves as “middle of the road”, “uniparty” little weasels and find excuses to stop the appointment of a decent candidate. But it seems to me that they would be underestimating the mood in the Country at large.
This can be huge. Gorsuch was the replacement for the loss of Scalia, but another like Gorsuch instead of Judas Kennedy would tip the scale for very long. And if Baader-Meinhof …. apologies…. Bader Ginsburg decides to retire too – or else the Grim Reaper asks to have a word with her – that would be huge, squared.
I can't contain my excitement. I have been waiting all month. 29 years reception? Really?
Finger crossed. Lots of prayers. Tomorrow could be one of those days that change the course of history.
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle!
For my “never tire of winning” series, a new example of the way this President thinks and works.
Trump has once again demonstrated he absolutely wants to deliver. However, his way of delivery is not a draconian and ultimately unrealistic “everything on day one” method.
On the one hand, he can tackle the issues one at a time, and pick his battles in the proper order. On the other hand, he loves to tease and keep people in suspense; as if to punish his lukewarm supporters and enjoy the shattered hopes of his enemies. There is in this, I think, a mixture of calculated strategy and amused mastery of the game of politics.
We see this happening again with the decision to pull out of the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement. A clear electoral promise was followed by a mixture of harsh statements and more conciliatory messages. Donald The Cat played with this particular mouse for fairly long, before delivering a mortal blow that will remain the more impressed in the consciousness of allies and enemies alike.
Make no mistake: Trump knew what he wanted to do from day one. He decided to build suspense in order to give more emphasis to his decision. He also enjoyed the faces of those who had hoped to the last, not very intelligently, that he would make a U-Turn on a policy already fully implemented (coal, pipelines) in order to please… some fat, smug, German bitch.
I am glad the decision came now. Trump waited to first have the momentum build, then told the other chief of government what morons they are, then built more suspense, then delivered a mortal blow to the Paris Agreement, but not without saying “if you ever become sane again come to me in confidence and we shall talk”.
Not only he delivered 100% on his promise, but he had a lot of fun along the way. If you understand the way the man works you will have a lot of fun, too.
We keep winning and winning. Boy, am I having fun.
Thank you, Lord, for the best President since Ronald Reagan.
The bogus religion of earth and bogus science was dealt a deadly blow yesterday as President Trump announced his Country's exit from the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement.
The childish reaction of the bunch of morons elected by the European voters is a stunning expression of denial of the “not my President” kind. It will work in the short term as the morons try to make themselves beautiful with their moronic voters, but it is clearly doomed as reality sets in and the European industrial machinery feels the pinch of costly, idiotic regulation whilst the US industry thrives. Nor is the EU in a position to bully the EU into complying with their environ-mentalist requests as they would do with lesser Country.
It would appear the biggest loser is China, which had profited of Limp Wrist Obama to secure a position of scandalous advantage and will now rapidly lose it even as the US look very closely at their imports from China. But I do not think this reflects reality.
The biggest loser is the new cult of man made global warming, which now lies on the ground with a hole in his belly pretty much as big as the United States. It will never recover, and will die of a slow horrible death as even European corrupted elites wake up to simple economic realities. Watch the narrative slowly unravel as the European Economies are confronted with the bill of their collective stupidity.
Welcome back to environmental sanity, world.
Once again, thank God for the USA.
A great Country in the midst of idiots.
Pope Francis heaped insults on Donald Trump when… he thought he would lose.
Sadly for him, Donald Trump won. Bergoglio, who is just as good at bullying the weak as he is incapable of opposing the strong, had to readjust to reality and decide whether he wanted to part of the “resistance” (outing himself as a damn Sixty-Eighter for the last of Cathokic Trump voters, who are an awful lot) or limit himself to the useful trite common place that do not frontally attack anyone of the really powerful and popular.
Trump, on the other hand, keeps being his usual self. Trump would screw someone multiple times whilst smiling telling the world what a wonderful person the screwed one is. He has done it with Romney, he is doing it with Francis. Today we had another example: Trump beaming, Francis grumpy. It was clear who of the two has bent the other to doing what he has to do.
The Wall with come. Francis will look and whine, but the Wall will still come. Trump will sport a radiant smile as he swears how much he likes the Francis, and forces everyone to acknowledge him as the POTUS and just live with it. It will be mighty fine to watch. Today, Francis has contributed to make America great again by being too cowardly to risk an open confrontation with Trump.
But again, this is what the man always does. A bit of pressure, and he will cave in. No pressure, and he will eat you alive.
A last word about the gifts. Trump to Francis: Martin Luther King. Francis to Trump: (as always) his own crappy writings. Francis is so full of himself he thinks he is the best thing anyone could read.
What a humble Pope we have.
Donald Trump is certainly not perfect, but he is the gift that keeps on … winning.
The recent decision to appoint ten federal judges of various types – all of them in the mould of Judge Gorsuch – shows once again that the man is serious about the return of sanity in the American judicial courts. The number of vacancies is higher than normal, in part no doubt because Obama lost control of the Senate and preferred to wait rather than appoint decent judges. Trump's victory and (narrow) majority in the Senate now allows him to help shape the federal courts for decades to come, through the appointment of young judges with impeccable credentials.
This is another example of how important Trump's victory was not only for the United States, but for Western Civilisation and Christianity in general. We are winning in so many ways that we should count our blessings instead of moaning of what is going slower than we expected.
Remember the sanctimonious Judases? No doubt, they will never be happy. They have decided never to be, lest it sullies their sanctimonious feelings of utter superiority to us mere, corrupt, compromising mortals.
Idiots and traitors. They must be despised now that we have won just the same as if we had lost. They are the scum of Catholicism. I wish we could have a Clinton administration applying only to them.
Yes, not all is perfect. Yes, the daughter and son-in-law are bad influences. Yes, there are people around Trump who try to steer him in the homo globalist direction.
But look at how smart the man is. Is he not delivering way, way more than any other candidate would have done? How realistic is it that, after building half his electoral campaign of the wall, he will cave on it? I'd say he will rather bide his time and then go nuclear on the RINOs, and this is one I would not want to have against me come primary time. How realistic is it that, after clearly ending the War on Coal, he will cave in on the Paris treaty? He will rather use it to expose the stupidity and anti-American attitude of the Obama administration. I have watched his 100 days Pennsylvania rally in its entirety, and I had never seen anything like that since the time of Thatcher and Reagan.
He promised the wall once again, by the way. Just in case the Doubting Thomases got nervous.
In the meantime the wall is being planned, the judges are being appointed, the economy is profiting from a new optimism, the health reform is going forward, the tax reform might do the same too, the ISIS is being bombed, North Korea is being tackled, the pipelines are going forward, the TPP is dead, Canada can't cheat on timber and milk derivative anymore, mining has a future again, I am sure I am forgetting a lot.
And then there is the elementary matter of freedom. It is easy to forget how important first and second amendment are when… they are not in danger anymore. Soon even the Sanctimonious Judases will pretend not to know – or will want you to forget – that they were fully ok with both of them being endangered and possibly hollowed out in ways never seen before, as they revel in their Schadenfreude. It truly seems that there is a particularly poisonous category of idiot that will only be satisfied when he, and all those around him, are miserable.
Never tire of winning. Enjoy these years, and do your utmost that they may go on for as long as possible. And not expect perfection.
Expect victory after victory, and a country recovered to sanity both for its own sake and for the sake of the Western Country looking at it for guidance (and protection).
Folks, things are going fine.
Read here a detailed report about the exemplary behaviour of justice Neil Gorsuch in his first month at the Supreme Court. You could not wish for better reassurance.
Stop for a moment now, and think what a threat to the entire Western Civilisation we would have been witnessing now if Hitlery had been elected, and had managed to have someone in the mould of the lesbian Kagan appointed. Not impossible to do at all, with 48 votes assured and no scarcity of RINO sellouts.
The appointment of Gorsuch alone is, quite likely, the defining moment of Trump's first term. More important than even the wall. I can only hope and pray that Kennedy decides to announce his retirement next month (as widely rumoured), and I am confident Trump would give us another candidate just as good: an event, this, also extremely important as it would tip the scale in favour of sanity for a long time. Kennedy proved a solemn disappointment, and I am sure the Gipper has rolled in his tomb many times.
If you really want to dream, I authorise you to wonder about the health of Bader Ginsburg, the now 84 years old non-observant liberal Jewess (I wonder how you can have better credentials as a hater of Christian societies and institutions).
Not wishing her death, of course.
Perish the thought.
She can always retire. But at 84 and expecting two terms for Trump I think the old woman will need a certain amount of stamina to make it through 2023 (expect no appointment if she dies in the election year).
Trump's victory already gave us a huge gift in the form of Gorsuch. More may happen. Actually, it is not unthinkable at all that Trump will appoint three judges during his first term alone. That would be more winning, and even more winning.
Never tire of winning. Never tire of thanking God that Hitlery didn't make it. Enjoy the awful lot that you already have and push together with Donald Trump to enjoy what you don't have yet.
It will not be all roses. But in comparison to a Clinton win it will look like the Garden of Eden every single day.
President Donald Trump is about to sign an order on religious liberty protecting Christians from the Gaystapo.
On this, as on much else, there had been rumours Trump was going to renege on his promises. On this, as on much else, Trump will prove he can deliver.
However, it's fair to say we must all get accustomed to Trump's style. He invites Mitt “Meow” Romney to talks for a possible job as Secretary of State : it takes weeks for the world to understand he was simply mocking and humiliating the poor idiot. He appears to favour Ryancare and to want it passed, it takes weeks for the world to understand he did not want to be accused of sabotaging Ryan and was going for the best possible outcome for him (Ryan smashes against the wall, and can't accuse him of anything) or for the second best (Ryancare passes and Trump has merely helped the guy to get something done). Then we will, one day, have another version, that passes, and Trump will get all the merit for stepping up to the plate and doing the job for the incompetent cuck. Boy, this one is a smart cookie.
Trump has a strange style. He isn't there for the fast win. He doesn't care what you think of him today provided he has his eyes focused on his objectives. Those who think he will be caving in on the wall just make me smile. He doesn't need the funding now, and prefers to eat his enemy one bite at a time. Gingrich tried the total war and lost. Trump isn't acting without thinking. Trump is the “art of the deal”, not the Samurai type.
The executive order on religious liberty will probably not be as though as the draft, though politico & Co. have all interest to cry wolf. But again, what has not come now will come later. It isn't smart to think Trump will compromise what has brought him to victory to please little darling daughter and son-in-law, and all those people ranting against whom got him elected.
At the same time, you must not expect a Crusader or an ideological fighter. Trump is a businessman, not a warrior. He is good at extracting all he can (and some more) when he can, with patience or with vengeance according to the situation on the ground.
The “Trump Way” will not please us always. He will not deliver on everything. He will drive us mad at times (Romney? Really??!!); but there is logic and purpose in what he does, and he will end up doing enormously better than every Clinton, Romney or McCain would have done.
Those who are most disappointed in him are those who have thought “America First” meant brutal Isolationism no matter what, or those who thought they had found the Spotless Crusader. Unrealistic positions both.
Three months later, Trump has already delivered Gorsuch, which is huge, and has taken decisive action in many other areas (from the TPP to the coal industry, from the pipelines to North Korea, from Syria to the Canadian wood and milk; this without counting the executive orders battled by absurdly politicised judicial activists). The future already looks much different than if Hitlery had won, and Gorsuch's appointment alone takes care of that.
My suggestion: keep calm and trust the Donald.
