Turmoil USA: Tucker Carlson Quotes Archbp Viganò’s Letter to President Trump

For the third time, the above video has been removed on YouTube. None of the programme seems to be online, so we can’t publish the clip of Tucker’s comments about Archbishop Viganò.  However, the clips are included in the following Dr Taylor Marshall video…

Comment: 
Tucker seems to do his homework, as indicated in his inclusion of parts of Archbishop Viganò’s letter to the President. And he covers so many angles in his search for the truth about what is going on right now, in the name of Covid-19. We know that he’s watched across the world, and that other commentators will now be alerted to the existence of the Archbishop’s letter.  This can only help encourage those with a mind to investigative journalism surely?

Thanks, too, to Dr Taylor Marshall for his commentary, with inclusion of the segment from Tucker’s show.   

USA Election: Priest On Voting Priorities – Warns Against “Catholic” Biden…

Comment: 

Even without the above excellent sermon I could not see how any American Catholic could vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.  After listening to the sermon, I’d dearly love to hear from any Catholic who still intends to vote for the Democratic Party. If every priest in the USA preached like that, there would be no question whatsoever about the outcome of the November election.  Therefore, let’s pray, in the remaining time, for some lights to switch on in the heads of currently less enlightened or less courageous priests.  As the priest in the video says, this election is a battle for the soul of America, no less – it is, unarguably, a battle for the soul of the free world.  Archbishop Fulton Sheen is quoted in the above sermon.  Here’s the Archbishop again, on the charge that the Church interferes in politics…

“… Is this true? It all depends upon what you mean by politics. If by interference in politics is meant using influence to favor a particular regime, party, or system that respects the basic God-given rights and freedom of persons, the answer is emphatically No! The Church does not interfere in politics. If by interference in politics is meant judging or condemning a philosophy of life that makes the party or state, or the class, or the race, the source of all rights, and that usurps the soul and enthrones party over conscience and denies those basic rights for which the war was fought, the answer is emphatically Yes!

The Church does judge such a philosophy. But when it does this, it is not interfering with politics, for such politics is no longer politics but theology. When a state sets itself up as absolute as God, when it claims sovereignty over the soul, when it destroys freedom of conscience and freedom of religion, then the state has ceased to be political and has begun to be a counter-Church.”  Ends. 

This is exactly what is happening, not just in America but here in the UK as well and in particular in socialist Scotland. So, why are there so few priests speaking out to warn, educate and edify the faithful?  

Scots Catholics For Trump Discuss Subversive, Mis-Named, Democratic Party

Below, a very informative article by one of our American bloggers – RCA Victor – to get us thinking about the forthcoming election in November, where the choice is between another term of office (four years) for President Trump or a new President, Joe Biden, a man who is a great friend of Communist China but no friend at all of the unborn child. A nominal Catholic, Biden is promising abortion up to the ninth month.  RCA Victor writes –

The Subversive Democratic Party: If at First You Don’t Succeed…

The [utterly mis-named] Democratic Party, long disguised as the “party of the working man,” has
dropped all pretense of advocacy for the well-being of our Republic, let alone the working man, and is now nakedly exposed as a Satanic cult of liars, thugs, subversives and smear artists obsessed with the acquisition of power by any means, at any price. This unmasking took place during a relatively short period: the eight years of the Obama “administration” (a regime more accurately labeled as the George Soros administration: Obama was merely his stooge).  This shorter link exposes the Soros network:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mItj4bA9Rn4

Their evil intentions and agenda appeared sporadically during those eight years, but since the first Presidential campaign of Donald Trump, and especially since his election, this Cult has orchestrated a full-court press to destroy not only Mr. Trump, but any trace of America-first policies, in favor of the perverse and sinister agenda of the New World Order, which is nothing more than International Communism with yet another new face.

The Cult includes politicians and former politicians, bureaucrats, so-called journalists, media celebrities, social network mobs, Marxist thugs, Silicon Valley oligarchs and other billionaires, academics, and even ex-military figures. Their well-funded but incompetent schemes failed to destroy the Trump Presidency, but that has not stopped them from developing a more comprehensive plan, this time to prevent Trump’s re-election. This scheme has many facets and is very dangerous, not only to Mr. Trump’s re-election, but especially to the future viability of the Republic. It includes the following:

1. Vote Fraud. This is actually an umbrella strategy that includes, but is not limited to, mail-in voting, encouraging non-citizens to vote, ballot harvesting, lowering the voting age to 16, allowing incarcerated criminals to vote, and abolishing the Electoral College.

2. False Accusations. A favorite tactic of the Cult is to accuse Trump of everything they are guilty
of, a psychological warfare strategy known as “projection.” Accusations already surfaced include such bizarre claims as: Trump will fix and steal the election, Trump will refuse to step down if he loses, Trump is an illegitimate President (a tactic tried out after his first victory) and Trump will have to be removed by military coup. Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House and a thoroughly corrupt, vicious and deranged woman (who claims to be Catholic!), has recently accused Trump and the Republicans of being “domestic enemies” and “enemies of the state” – an accurate description of Pelosi herself, and of her fellow Cult members.

3. Compromised Vote Tabulations. Ever faithful to their icon Stalin’s famous dictum, “it’s not the people who vote that count, it’s the people  who count the votes,” election researchers have already found evidence that voting machines can be and are compromised, and tallies manipulated by disabling security protections.

4. Create Litigation Chaos. Hillary Clinton has already telegraphed some of this strategy by publicly stating that Joe Biden “should not concede under any circumstances.” That is, election results unfavorable to the Satanists will be thrown into countless court battles via a “massive legal operation,” which will not only dispute any invalidation of suspicious or faulty ballots, but even attempt to delay certification in Democrat-controlled states so that the Electoral College cannot declare a winner.

5. Big Tech Weaponization. It is well-known that Google, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter have been suppressing conservative information, i.e. the truth, for several years now. An investigation into this by Project Veritas can be found here.

6. Riots and Unrest. You can be sure that mobs of George Soros-funded paramilitary thugs, especially his two favorite Marxist guerilla gangs –  Antifa and Black Lives Matter – will be present at targeted polling locations to intimidate voters and suppress votes, shouting slogans of “systemic racism,” “white privilege,” “capitalist imperialism,” and other threats specifically adapted to each location. Should Trump actually win the election, these same gangs are poised to engage in widespread violence and rioting.

7. Finally, all this and more is enabled and facilitated by the Cult’s control of the media, who have long since abandoned all pretense of journalistic integrity and accuracy in favor of overt electioneering and character assassination. As soon as the Cult produces a lie, their media partners, following the Joseph Goebbels axiom, begin screeching their attempt to validate it. This process also works in reverse, as media-produced lies are repeated ad nauseam by the rest of the Cult. Such is the power of evil in America, now gathered with fearsome strength against a seemingly lone warrior, Donald Trump. But all this power is hollow, because it is from Satan himself. We need to pray to Our Lady to crush the head of this satanic attack against Mr. Trump, against the United States of America, and against the once-Christian West. This election is the beginning, in my opinion, of Satan’s penultimate battle, which will culminate in his defeat by the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Editor’s Comment…                               

Informed Scots Catholics recognise that Donald Trump is our only hope, humanly speaking, to avert the introduction of Communist rule into  previously democratic nations like the USA and the UK.  So, we add our voices to those of our American friends, who are praying and working to achieve a second term for President Trump. 

We’ve chosen to launch this discussion on the 8 September, the day marked in the traditional calendar as the Nativity of Our Lady, asking our beloved Blessed Mother for her intercession to win many graces for the American people and politicians, as the election campaigns begin.  We pray that she might soften the hearts of the Democratic Party politicians, and enlighten the minds of those who normally wouldn’t vote for the Republican Party. 

We need Donald Trump in office for another four years because, as the UN Economist, Jeffrey Sachs has admitted publicly, President Trump is the only thing standing between [the elite] and the New World Order – which we know is a euphemism for one world tyrannical governance.  The most pro-life President in the history of America is opposed by a political party promoting abortion up to and including delivery – do Catholics have any choice…seriously?  How will any Catholic face God at his/her judgment if they do NOT vote for Trump in November?  Answers on the proverbial postcard, please and thank you! 

 Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!  Our Lady of Good Success, pray for us!  Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us!   

The Great Reset…Covid-19, A Golden Opportunity to “Re-Set” the World…

Comment:  

To quote from The Remnant piece presenting the above video  (and remember what is true for the USA is also true for the UK)...

To understand what’s really happening here, [Michael Matt] takes us to Davos, Switzerland—to the World Economic Forum—where the movers and shakers of the world have been meeting on a regular basis, especially since January 2020, to discuss the “opportunity” for a ‘global reset’ at the Davos 2021 Summit.

Using multiple video clips, Michael shows how everyone from Soros, to Gates, to Schwab, to Al Gore and the Secretary-General of the United Nations are only too eager to admit exactly what The Great Reset is all about.

Using the Trojan Horse of a very serious Coronavirus, these globalists plan to create a global reset of everything from the world economy, to population control, commerce, climate change regulation, education and the UN Sustainable Development Goals in order to “reorder” and “reimagine” every aspect of life as we know it.

This is the rest of the story behind the Russia hoax, Ukraine, the phony impeachment and all the other deep state attempts to cripple Trump’s efforts to ‘make America great again.”

Why? Because no country—especially not the U.S.—can opt out of The Great Reset.

If they get their New Normal, nothing will be the same ever again. Nothing, that is, unless Donald Trump wins in November.

The folks at Davos want a new world order, and the only thing standing in their way at the moment is US.   Ends

And remember, folks, “the new world order” is, by definition, Communism.  Make no mistake about it – although, if you disagree, tell us… 

Preaching Social Justice is Un-Biblical…

Comment:

The constant preaching about so-called social justice in parishes is one of the key reasons why thinking Catholics become more open to recognising the crisis in the Church. Eventually, it dawns on them that they just can’t be responsible for every perceived injustice under the sun.  

The Scottish Government electoral registration forms are dropping on doormats this week.  Mine arrived today.  Young people aged 14 may now register to vote although they can’t actually vote until they are 16.  Imagine 16 year olds helping to decide who gets to run the country. Any Party which promises to reduce the price of designer trainers, will be home and dry.  Foreign citizens living in Scotland can also now register to vote, and all of this with an eye to the 2021 Holyrood election – and all to distract voters from the SNP’s dismal record on governance:  click here for more on that. 

The illusion of “social justice” preached by priests and politicians does appeal to the inexperienced and uneducated young.  They are brainwashed, in schools and churches, with the idea that the UK is full of social injustice.  Long-term, of course, this can only be corrected by a restoration of sound teaching in seminaries and teacher training colleges but what can be done in the short-term … for those young people who are not reading this blog?  😀     And if you disagree with the distinction between social justice and justice, let us know. We’re all ears 😀  

Covid-19: Ignore Government’s Terror Campaign – Live As Before… Be Free! 

Below, an unpublished article on Covd-19 by Martin Blackshaw (aka blogger, Athanasius) which was sent to several national newspapers (unacknowledged).

Important Note: Martin writes: “It might be worth reminding readers that if I keep recounting official figures, I do so in order that they may see the massive lie which the propaganda represents. Bottom line is that no matter how good the media act by the propagandists, official numbers don’t lie!”

During his May 11 Covid-19 briefing at Downing Street, England’s Chief Medical Officer, Professor Chris Whitty (right),  stated to assembled journalists: “I wish to emphasise again that for most people Covid-19 is harmless”.

And so it has proved. To date, the official, though highly questionable, global death count from Covid-19 stands at a little over 760,000 from more than 22 million infections. That equates to just 3.4% of the global infection count and barely 0.01% of the global population. To put the recorded figure into even greater context, it represents just 110,000 more than the World Health Organisation’s upper annual number of 650,000 deaths from seasonal flu.

According to official Scottish government figures our national share of this global count is relatively small at 2,491 deaths of people who actually tested positive for the virus, the majority of victims being either elderly folk locked down in care homes or people with compromised immune systems. This translates to a tiny 0.04% of Scotland’s 5.5 million population.

Likewise the rest of the UK which has registered 41,400 deaths from a population of 60 million, equating to a mere 0.07%, again largely elderly and those predisposed by compromised immunity.

In every other country around the world similarly low Covid death percentages are recorded against national population numbers, the U.S. incredibly showing one of the lowest at 0.17% despite  massively higher infection numbers in comparison with other nations.

While it is understandable that both the U.S. and UK governments were persuaded in March to lockdown their respective countries upon the dire prompting of professor Neil Ferguson of University College London, it is now obvious that his apocalyptic prediction of 650,000 deaths in the UK and 2.2 million in the U.S. has been utterly discredited, as has the professor himself following revelations that he broke the lockdown rules several times to meet with his lover.

Now call me old fashioned if you will but I happen to believe in exercising my human reason by personal research, weighing recorded facts against propaganda to get to the truth. Thus, having spent several hundreds of hours researching the Covid-19 crisis, I have been forced to conclude that our political leaders are either suffering from collective insanity or they are collectively engaged in a universal social engineering experiment for reasons that are as yet unclear.

What is absolutely certain is that Covid-19 represents a very low threat to humanity overall, a fact that is borne out by undeniable official statistics, yet the free world finds itself under a Beijing-like totalitarianism complete with arbitrary removal of civil liberties, population surveillance, dehumanising face mask enforcement and soon-to-be-forced vaccination.

To put this unfathomable reaction to Covid-19 into perspective, it is historically recorded that the Black Death of the Middle Ages killed approximately half the population of Europe, around 100 – 150 million people. Similarly, the Spanish Flu of the early 20th century is estimated to have killed around 100 million globally. Compare this with 760,000 dead globally from today’s virus and hopefully that little light bulb in the brain will begin to glow with the realisation that the terror narrative of our governments is both unfounded and unjustifiable.

Unless the peoples of nations start questioning this ‘plague upon us’ narrative instead of blindly surrendering their freedom and economic future for fear of a virus that is presently showing to be relatively harmless for 96.6% of those who get infected, then we all face a very bleak future.

Imagine years of arbitrary local and/or national lockdowns every time a case of the sniffles is reported. Think of the constant threat of imposed  house arrest, of not being free to go on holiday, to the pub, to church, to a care home to visit an elderly relative, or to a football match. Reflect on the uncertainty in committing to a mortgage or a loan for fear that the next lockdown may wipe out your employer and your income.
These are just a few of the considerations people have to weigh in light of this unprecedented and unconstitutional suppression of freedom that has literally transformed our Western democracies overnight into models of Communist totalitarianism under the pretext of keeping us safe.

But what does being “safe” actually mean? How can any of us be guaranteed a life of safety when any number of tragedies can strike us at any moment, as was the case with my young sister, a perfectly healthy 28-year old who suddenly developed Leukaemia and was dead in a month?

No, there is no such thing as guaranteed safety in life beyond taking obvious precautions such as wearing a seat belt in the car, not drinking and driving, looking right and left before crossing the road, etc.

It is madness in the extreme to live our lives in the belief that we can hide from a virus, from cancer, from a stroke or any from other health misfortune common to humanity;  it simply is not possible. Despite all our efforts to “stay safe” we know that one day we will die from something.

Speaking of which, I have a friend who is suffering from aggressive prostate cancer yet his life-saving treatment has been suspended, as has that of others, under Covid rules. If this together with 40% of acute NHS beds lying empty for the first time in decades tells us anything, it is that our government is not acting to “save lives”.

So let us resolve to live as before and not in accordance with this terror campaign of government that portends to rob us permanently of our  peace of mind, not to mention our liberty and economic future, turning us into (anti)social distancing, muzzled and sanitised automatons of dictatorial State rulers to be herded like sheep around one-way systems marked out with ground arrows.

Despite the feigned sincerity of our national leaders, who claim to be acting in our best interests, this manifestation of totalitarian dictatorship is the real silent assassin in our midst, the killer of our freedom.

I, for one, would rather take my chances with a real plague as a free man than succumb to this  dehumanising control by government, which has very astutely politicised a novel flu to introduce the Police State as our “new normal”.  [Emphases added].

Comment: 

One of the problems for rebels like myself, actively resisting these police-enforceable rules/regulations/guidance/laws is that nearly everyone else is going along with them, if only to get along.  That is, I’ve met some people recently who signal their skepticism, disapproval even, of what  is going on but will obediently wear a mask and keep “social distancing” to the point where they’re likely to end up across the border in England. And we’re talking here, people who live in Glasgow.  I kid you not.   

The sheer terror on the face of the shop worker who literally ran after me today in a Glasgow shop, waving a bottle of hand sanitizer in the air and asking me why I’m not wearing a mask, was a sight to behold.  Any minute now, I thought, and the soundtrack from The Sound of Music will begin. It may have been my imagination, of course, but it seemed to me that she was doing a final twirl as I began explaining that I don’t DO hand sanitizer, and that I’m exempt from wearing a mask but that’s not why I’m not wearing one; I’m not wearing one, I told her, because (drum roll) I don’t want to wear one.  Terror turned to panic.  The music changed to the theme tune from Psycho.  Incredible. 

Anyway, it’s difficult being a rebel at this time, so I’m not sure how many of us reading Martin’s excellent article above, will take to ourselves his exhortation to “resolve to live as before”.  I’ve been trying to do that for a good while now. It brings some strange, if not outright hostile looks, so it’s not easy.  Still, I’m going to keep working at it – what about you?

Marxism Failed – that’s the good news… 

Comment: 

Why, given that it always creates totalitarian states, does Marxism continue to draw the young – because it does attract the young. 

That, to continue from the headline, is the bad news…

I know of students who are committed to studying Marx and who identify themselves as Socialists.  What’s the draw? 

Our Lady appeared at Fatima precisely to warn against the spread of Communism, yet we have bishops (and now a Pope) who are implicitly, if not explicitly singing from the same Marxist hymn sheet – er… to coin a phrase.   Why? 

What can we say  – in a few short words, a soundbite, almost –  to draw them closer to a realization that it is Christ – not Marx – who is the answer to all the problems and mysteries of life…

Venezuela: Pope Francis’s Downfall?

The Wall Street Journal points out that while Pope Francis is not slow to denounce President Donald Trump, he is not so quick to take Nicolás Maduro to task – click here

The Bishops of Venezuela Appeal to Our Lady for Deliverance from Maduro. 
From Francis, Only Silence. 
by Christopher A. Ferrara
August 11, 2017

Francis and Maduro: Happy together?“Will Venezuela be Francis’s downfall?” That provocative question is posed by Monica Showalter in an important article at the American Thinker blog. There is no arguing with her opening line: “The world’s first Latin American pope isn’t exactly covering himself with glory as the hellfire of Venezuela immolates that God-forsaken nation.” There has been nothing but silence from Francis as the socialist tyrant Nicolás Maduro oppresses the Venezuelan people and destroys the nation’s once vibrant economy, reducing many to rummaging through garbage cans for food.

For their part, the bishops of Venezuela know a tyrant when they see one: during the run-up to Maduro’s sham election of a new “constituent assembly” to rewrite the Venezuelan constitution in his favor, the Venezuelan Bishops’ Conference posted this prayer to their Twitter account: “Most Holy Virgin, Mother of Coromoto, heavenly Patron of Venezuela, free our homeland from the claws of communism and socialism.” It seems certain that no such words will ever escape the lips of Francis.

The bishops’ prayer is most telling from this Fatima perspective. Our Lady of Coromoto is a title of the Mother of God the Church has assigned to Her apparitions to the chief of the Coromoto tribe in 1591 following the arrival of the Spanish in Venezuela. Instructed by the Virgin to undergo baptism in order to be saved, the chief at first complied but then changed his mind before receiving the sacrament. During a second most impressive apparition of Our Lady, the chief became enraged and tried to grab the Blessed Virgin, but She disappeared, leaving in the chief’s hand a kind of holy card relic, quite small in size, which is preserved to this day in a protective monstrance. It depicts the Virgin, with Child, seated on a throne, both bearing crowns on their heads.

No mere legend, the apparition of Our Lady of Coromoto received approbation from the highest authority in the Church, with Pope Pius XII declaring Our Lady of Coromoto “Patroness of the Republic of the Venezuela” at the request of the country’s bishops, whose successors appeal to Her today.

No such appeal to the Virgin on behalf of the poor nation of Venezuela can be expected from Francis. As one columnist notes in the Wall Street Journal (quoted here):
“Venezuela’s crisis doesn’t fit into Pope Francis’s standard way of explaining contemporary political and economic problems. It’s very hard for the pope to blame Venezuela’s problems on the tyranny of Mammon, financial speculation, free trade agreements, arms-dealers, nefarious ‘neoliberals,’ or any of his usual list of suspects.”

This is not to suggest (as do American neo-conservatives) that the Bergoglian list of usual suspects does not come in for legitimate, indeed harsh, criticism according to Catholic social teaching. Rather, the problem here is blindness to that same social teaching with respect to its equally harsh condemnation of socialism, summed up in Pius XI’s dictum in his landmark social encyclical Quadragesimo anno: “Religious socialism, Christian socialism, are contradictory terms; no one can be at the same time a good Catholic and a true socialist.”

It is an axiom of our religion that no person on earth can judge the Pope in the sense of a penal sentence with juridical effect. But the bar of history offers its own inescapable judgment of Popes. In that sense, I must agree with Showalter’s conclusion: “What it all points to is that the pope needs to either blast the nightmare in Venezuela or watch his own credibility go down the drain as civil war engulfs that country… Either he slays the Venezuelan dragon or the Venezuelan dragon will slay him.”   Source
