Here is one European who has had enough

As a followup to the previous article which attempts to encourage Europe to throw off its chains we present this interview with the late Udo Ulfkotte, the German journalist who did just that.  He said "enough is enough" and began to tell those with ears to hear how the news media is now merely a functionary of the State.  It is an eye-opener.

Alas he died of a heart attack a few days ago (he had a history of heart trouble, though some detect something unsavory about his convenient exit from life) but before leaving us he has left us a book, Gekaufte Journalisten ("Journalists for Hire", the English translation of which will be released this coming May in a less expensive edition), about his role as a propaganda exporter.

Ulfkotte tried to awaken Europe.

Here is the video interview:

Europe: How many more punishments do you need before you wake up?

An Open Letter to Europe:

World War I decimates great swathes of Europe, brings down the last Catholic monarchies and opens the door to further horrors.

World War II:  the horrors increase, tenfold.

Now: the new barbarian invasion of Europe.  And America is frothing at the mouth to use Europe as the flashpoint for the new war they crave.  Just what is it going to take to wake you dear people up?

Those three (soon to be four?) tragedies were punishments from God because Europe, which created Western civilization, abandoned most of its principles.  Please read that again.

There are many reasons for these punishments but let us mention just a few.  You have became lukewarm in your practice of the Catholic Faith which created Europe.  When one generation goes lukewarm on this subsequent generations grow weaker and weaker so that now a majority of Europeans no longer take seriously the religion that gave them their lives and their nations. True, the Church has let you down terribly.  There is no question of that.  A series of weak, mediocre and vacillating pontiffs and the contagion of Modernism have made sure that the Church is only a shadow of its former robust self.  Nevertheless, too many of you dear people allowed that to open by a strange mixture of cynicism and papolatry.  The voices of great Catholics warning of imminent danger were ignored, mocked and forgotten.  Now look at what has happened to the Church.  Now look at what has happened to Europe.

You have rejected children.  Where are the normal sized Catholic families of at least 6-7 children? Here is a logic question for you:  what do you imagine happens when young Catholic s stop having large families and, conversely, other cultures have large families?  Must I answer that for you?  Yes? Well, here is what happens: in time there will be no little ones to grow, have families, and rebuild Catholic culture, and your antagonists will have large families who will replace your Catholic culture with something else.  [The same thing happens in America, although with a horrible twist:  white people no longer have children and blacks produce oceans of fatherless bastards - black illegitimacy is well over 80% - which creates untold turmoil.  At least the Muslims stay married and value children.]

You don't want to have children that put a crimp in your lifestyle?  Fine.  Then don't complain when Paris is overrun by lawless migrants or the little neighborhood you grew up in in the US is now a criminal hellhole unsafe to be anywhere near.  So who brought this misery upon you?  You did.  Sure, it is fine to blame vile filth like George Soros and son, Sheldon Adelson and all the craven politicians they own.  Yes, they facilitate this with money and unjust laws.  But you let them do it.  You voted in the Merkels, the Hollandes and the Camerons.

You absorbed into your beautiful Europe the worst stench of all time: American "culture".  Look at your once great films, composers, artists.  Where are they?  Instead you now jive to rap "music", deranged "rock", inane American films, etc.  You soak up this sewage and it infects your whole being. You allow the world's greatest purveyor of inedible rubbish, McDonald's, to sprout up everywhere, even the Vatican.  Yes, I realize that most Europeans who still have some of their culture left avoid these places like the plague, but how about your children and grandchildren, growing up on a diet of lousy hamburgers?

And now, an insanity to top all other insanities, you allow yourselves via your politicians, to allow your countries to be US military installations, complete with nuclear bombs all out of an irrational fear of a country that no longer means you any harm and simply wants to be friendly.  You do this because of your slavish and inexplicable admiration for the American Empire.  Do you not yet realize that America wants a new world war?  Poland, dear stupid Poland, is especially clueless in this regard.  Four thousand US troops have arrived there.  Do you not see, dear Poland, that you are pawns?  Have you Europeans realized that if a missile is fired at Russia from a US base in your country that the retaliation might possibly reduce you to ashes?  Was World War I and II not enough for you?

Europeans once got on their knees before God and Holy Mary to pray.  Now you get on your knees before America.

Lest you think I am critical solely of Europeans please know, as illustrated in some of my asides above, that I am well aware of the total corruption of the USA.  But it is not the USA that is going to stop the madness simply because the USA is one of authors of this madness.  America has no culture; it is a mere 200 years old.  It is Europe that has a culture, once a Catholic culture, and if it returns to its roots it, not the US, may save civilization.

It is no longer possible to sit by passively and allow vermin like Cardinals Marx, Schonborn, Kasper, Nichols et al to trash the faith of Europe.  Zero tolerance for these clerical criminals must be the order of the day.  Speak out against them.  They are trying to kill you, spiritually and bodily. You would sit by silently and allow them to do that?

And for the love of God stop showing up at their stupid New Masses.  If you must attend this puerile nonsense at least try to find one with some reverence.  Better, find the traditional, ancient Mass. They are peppered all over Europe.  Get your soul, heart and mind back into shape first before doing battle with your spiritual and cultural enemies.  Then do battle.

For your mental help, stop absorbing propaganda from the media.  The thrust of this little blog is just that, a fight against propaganda of all kinds.  Does it give you pleasure being lied to every day?  If not stop listening to them.  There are, after all, alternative sources.  Yet good as many of them are even some of them are not immune to passing along propaganda.  Think for yourselves. There are always two sides to a story.

Europe can be saved.  Not with its present politicians.  Not with the current regime in the Vatican. It has to start with prayer and you, and lots and lots of Christ's little ones being brought into the world. Either sacrifice that summer home, that grand holiday vacation every year, that second car now by having more and bigger Catholic families, or you will find yourself soon facing real sacrifices, such as food, shelter and safety.

Either Europe will be annihilated, most likely due to the war criminals in the USA or Europe will stand up, reclaim its Faith and reject this diabolical recipe for death.  Chaos is just around the corner. Sometimes, the first step in ending chaos, is looking into the eyes of a newborn.

Dear Europeans, start there, at least.  And start now.

American Gratitude

In the movie Hidden Figures Americans are being brainwashed with the Fake History that we couldn’t have made it to the moon without sassy black women doing the math. Paul Kersey has already pointed out that the flight path trajectory was actually developed by a white Southerner, Dr. Jack Crenshaw. But there’s an even more Politically Incorrect truth: we couldn’t have done it without Germans—specifically, Nazi rocket scientists. For that matter, we probably couldn’t have launched the Star Wars anti-missile program and won the Cold War. I know. I was there. And the shameful treatment America meted out to one of those scientists, Arthur Rudolph, troubles me to this day.
As older readers may recall, at the end of the war—that would be WW II for us octogenarians—our government took the role of the coyote and smuggled a few illegal aliens into the country. In “Operation Paperclip” we snatched Wernher von Braun and his team from under the nose of the advancing Soviets and transported them in darkest secrecy to the desert of White Sands Proving Grounds, near El Paso. There they resumed work where they had left off in Germany. (Attn. Editor Peter Brimelow: Is it possible that not all illegal immigration is bad?)
14 April 55 In an unprecedented ceremony held at Huntsville High School, 103 German-born scientists, technicians, and members of their families became American citizens. Among those taking the oath of citizenship was Dr. Wernher von Braun. Von Braun’s team continued their rocket experiments by re-assembling and firing Hitler’s leftover V-2 rockets that we had confiscated when we invaded Germany. Eventually—now get this—on an appointed day these foreigners were smuggled from Texas into Mexico, from whence they merrily sashayed across the Rio Grande bridge and legally immigrated into the U.S.A.! Eventually, they became American citizens.(Right, a 1955 citizenship ceremony in Huntsville High School, in which 103 German nationals swore the Oath of Allegiance.)
In 1955, the team was moved to Huntsville, AL, and to its sprawling Redstone Arsenal. When President Kennedy announced the goal of sending a man to the moon, the team transferred to the newly-formed NASA, where they became famous in the eyes of the world during the glorious days of the dawning Space Age. Von Braun was chosen to head the George C. Marshall Space Flight Center. Then came Explorer, Gemini, Apollo, and on to the moon!
I had two personal connections to these men. The first relates to a dark spot amidst the brilliance of the Space Race.
One of von Braun’s top lieutenants, Arthur Rudolph (right) developed the Saturn V, the world’s greatest booster rocket and the one used in the Apollo mission. However, once America no longer needed Rudolph, the Office of Special Investigations accused him of war crimes.

Nearly a thousand children rotting in a dark jail.....

....for the crime of throwing stones.

I came across this comment at a news website which puts the whole question of what is happening in that part of the world in the simplest of terms:

I wonder if you took a poll in the United States…an honest poll….and asked every American whether they thought it would constitute a “crime” for a twelve year old kid to pick up a stone and throw it at the bulldozer of an occupying army, coming onto his family's property to bulldoze his family's home that had been in his family for 12 generations, I wonder what they would say ?

Hungary gets serious about George Soros

Years ago when the Crown of St Stephen, kept in safekeeping when the Communists took over that nation, was returned to Hungary many including this writer saw that as a terrible act of betrayal.

But given what has been happening in Hungary in recent decades I'm not so sure anymore.  Perhaps it was a providential action.  Now I thank God the Crown was returned.  Hungary is about to take serious steps to rid its land of the contagion of George Soros.

Hungary plans to crack down on non-governmental organizations linked to billionaire George Soros now that Donald Trump will occupy the White House, according to the deputy head of Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s party.
The European Union member will use “all the tools at its disposal” to “sweep out” NGOs funded by the Hungarian-born financier, which “serve global capitalists and back political correctness over national governments,” Szilard Nemeth, a vice president of the ruling Fidesz party, told reporters on Tuesday. No one answered the phone at the Open Society Institute in Budapest when Bloomberg News called outside business hours.
“I feel that there is an opportunity for this, internationally,” because of Trump’s election, state news service MTI reported Nemeth as saying. Lawmakers will start debating a bill to let authorities audit NGO executives, according to parliament’s legislative agenda.

Orban, the first European leader to publicly back Trump’s campaign, has ignored criticism from the European Commission and U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration for building a self-described “illiberal state” modeled on authoritarian regimes including Russia, China and Turkey. In 2014, Orban personally ordered the state audit agency to probe foundations financed by Norway and said that civil society groups financed from abroad were covers for “paid political activists.”

Viktor Orban will have a fight on his hands when he tackles with a swine like Soros.  May Our Lord bless Hungary.

Political Correctness and the Ruling Class

This is not a photo of Dracula.  It is Baron Rothschild.

An interesting take on those who rule over us.

Comrade, your statement is factually incorrect.”
“Yes, it is. But it is politically correct.”

he notion of political correctness came into use among Communists in the 1930s as a semi-humorous reminder that the Party’s interest is to be treated as a reality that ranks above reality itself. Because all progressives, Communists included, claim to be about creating new human realities, they are perpetually at war against nature’s laws and limits. But since reality does not yield, progressives end up pretending that they themselves embody those new realities. Hence, any progressive movement’s nominal goal eventually ends up being subordinated to the urgent, all-important question of the movement’s own power. Because that power is insecure as long as others are able to question the truth of what the progressives say about themselves and the world, progressive movements end up struggling not so much to create the promised new realities as to force people to speak and act as if these were real: as if what is correct politically—i.e., what thoughts serve the party’s interest—were correct factually.
Communist states furnish only the most prominent examples of such attempted groupthink. Progressive parties everywhere have sought to monopolize educational and cultural institutions in order to force those under their thumbs to sing their tunes or to shut up. But having brought about the opposite of the prosperity, health, wisdom, or happiness that their ideology advertised, they have been unable to force folks to ignore the gap between political correctness and reality.
Especially since the Soviet Empire’s implosion, leftists have argued that Communism failed to create utopia not because of any shortage of military or economic power but rather because it could not overcome this gap. Is the lesson for today’s progressives, therefore, to push P.C. even harder, to place even harsher penalties on dissenters? Many of today’s more discerning European and American progressives, in possession of government’s and society’s commanding heights, knowing that they cannot wield Soviet-style repression and yet intent on beating down increasing popular resistance to their projects, look for another approach to crushing cultural resistance. Increasingly they cite the name of Antonio Gramsci (1891–1937), a brilliant Communist theoretician for whom “cultural hegemony” is the very purpose of the struggle as well as its principal instrument. His writings envisage a totalitarianism that eliminates the very possibility of cultural resistance to progressivism. But owing more to Machiavelli than to Marx or Lenin, they are more than a little complex about the means and are far from identical with the raw sort of power over culture enforced by the Soviet Empire or, for that matter, that is rife among us today.
 My purpose here is to explain how progressives have understood and conducted their cultural war from the days of Lenin, and how Gramsci’s own ambiguous writings illustrate the choices they face in conducting that war in our time and circumstances—especially with regard to political correctness in our present culture war.

James Larson offers cautionary words to Cardinal Burke

Mr James Larson offers these thoughts on Cardinal Burke's seeking clarity regarding Amoris Laetitia. Like many, Mr Larson is afraid that should some kind of "firing" of the Pope come to pass it would change the Divine Monarchial structure of the Church into something it can never be, namely an Aristocracy, whereby Bishops and Cardinals could get together and simply depose a Pope they did not like.

These are controversial, uncharted waters that could be entered into, and as much as I and other Catholics would like to see the end of the Francis Regime we must consider carefully the ramifications of some of the ideas being put forward so that we don't fatally damage the Church of Christ in our efforts to fight back against the lunacies emanating from the Vatican.

I also hope it goes without saying that my admiration for Cardinal Burke remains undiminished even if at times I have questioned one or two of his statements in these pages.  I also recognize, vis-a-vis the Pope's dreadful document, that the Cardinal can change his mind after soberly reflecting upon the dangers the exhortation presents.

Monarchy, Si.  Aristocracy, No.  Let those be our watchwords.

Cardinal Burke
The Center Will Not Hold
It would seem an unquestionable fact that Cardinal Burke is the most influential leader in the resistance to the “moral gradualism” set in motion throughout the Church by Pope Francis and his Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia. The traditional/orthodox Catholic world now seems to hang upon his every word and action.
It began slowly. Many traditional Catholics were deeply disappointed by Cardinal Burke’s initial response to Amoris Laetitia. In his statement issued in early April, 2016, it was his position that Amoris Laetitia needed to be interpreted in terms of Catholic tradition, while it was of course the position of many traditional Catholic media commentators that it in fact directly contradicted the traditional doctrinal and practical tradition of the Church. In his initial response, Cardinal Burke stated:
The secular media and even some Catholic media are describing the recently issued post-synodal apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia, “Love in the Family,” as a revolution in the Church, as a radical departure from the teaching and practice of the Church, up to now, regarding marriage and the family.
Such a view of the document is both a source of wonder and confusion to the faithful and potentially a source of scandal, not only for the faithful but for others of goodwill who look to Christ and his Church to teach and reflect in practice the truth regarding marriage and its fruit, family life, the first cell of the life of the Church and of every society”.
It matters little whether we interpret the words “some Catholic media” to apply to militantly liberal or traditional Catholic media venues. The fact is that both rightly saw Amoris Laetitia as being a “revolution” and “radical departure” from traditional Catholic teaching, and thus both had to fall under Cardinal Burkes deprecatory categorization of them as causing “wonder and confusion” for the faithful. Quite rightly, therefore, many traditional Catholics felt somewhat betrayed by Cardinal Burke’s assessment.
It is, however, Cardinal Burke himself who has done the most since last April to keep this “scandal”, with all its “wonder and confusion”, alive not only in the minds and hearts of the Catholic faithful, but also in the eyes of the world.
On September 19, 2016, four Cardinals (Walter Branmuller, Raymond Burke, Carlo Caffara, and Joachim Meisner) sent a letter to Pope Francis, along with five “Dubia” (“doubts” or “questions”) in reference to the teaching of the Pope’s Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, and requesting that these Dubia be answered and clarified by the Pope himself.
The letter went unanswered, and thus, on November 14, these Cardinals published both the Letter and Dubia, along with a Foreword, and also an Explanatory Note which further elaborated on the five Dubia, to the general public. This composite of documents they titled Seeking Clarity. A Plea to Untie the Knots in “Amoris Laetitia”.
One day later, on November 15, in an interview with Edward Pentin of the National Catholic Register, Cardinal Burke emphatically agreed with Mr. Pentin that some of the teachings of Amoris Laetitia, “go against the law of non-contradiction” in respect to moral doctrine and the state of soul necessary to receive the sacraments, and that if there is no response (from Pope Francis) to these questions, “I would say that it would be a question of taking a formal act of correction of a serious error”, and that “It is the duty in such cases, and historically it has happened, of cardinals and bishops to make clear that the Pope is teaching error and to ask him to correct it.”
Further, in an interview with Catholic Action for Faith and Family, Cardinal Burke flatly stated his opinion that Amoris Laetitia was not magisterial because it “contains serious ambiguities” [which, if they “go against the law of non-contradiction”, are obviously heretical) that “confuse people and can lead them into error and grave sin.” He further stated that “we [the four Cardinals] are hoping to make this a discussion for all Catholics, especially our fellow bishops.”
Cardinal Burke, in other words, has contradicted his own original position that Amoris Laetitia could be interpreted in line with Tradition, and has placed himself in the forefront of those who propose that its teachings entail a “radical departure” from tradition. He cannot any longer maintain the posture that he and the other Cardinals are only seeking “clarification”. Having publicly stated that Amoris Laetitia contains teachings which “go against the law of non-contradiction” in regard to traditional moral doctrine, he is necessarily identifying these teachings as heretical. Further, in declaring that “we are hoping to make this a discussion for all Catholics, especially our fellow bishops”, he shows that he is committed to taking what he formerly labeled as “potentially a form of scandal” to the highest level of public awareness where it will indeed create the most “wonder and confusion” among the faithful. And, obviously, he plans to use the public media to do so.
But he has now gone much further.
