True Things Kanye Says, Episode 2

It’s so many of our children that are being vaccinated and paralyzed. . . . So when they say the way we’re going to fix Covid is with a vaccine, I’m extremely cautious. That’s the mark of the beast. They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven. I’m sorry when I say they, the humans that have the Devil inside them. And the sad thing is that, the saddest thing is that we all won’t make it to heaven, that there’ll be some of us that do not make it.

New Feature: True Things Kanye Says

Now that he is running for President, I thought it would be good to report on Kanye West. Do I support him, assuming he’s serious? Too early to tell. For all kinds of reasons, Trump is likely the last, best chance for what you know as the United States as we know it.

But would Kanye be a better President than Joe Biden?

Oh honey. By a factor of a zillion, and not just because he’s in his right mind.

Kanye actually knows about you know, the thing Jesus Christ, and believes in Him. And he’s a bright and successful businessman. Like Trump, though there is much in the past to deplore, he appears to have had some kind of conversion experience that has changed his public positions.

So, with all that in mind, I present episode 1 of True Things Kanye Says:

Planned Parenthoods have been placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the Devil’s work.

Playing It Straight

Most years on this date I greet my readers with a post memorializing the end of the American experiment embodied in the fall of Vicksburg on July 4, 1863 (which, coupled with Gettysburg, ended any realistic hope of Southern victory in arms). Or sometimes I post a pithy greeting “celebrating” the victory of some Freemasons over the illegitimate Protestant Monarch.

But no, not today. Though King Lincoln killed the Constitution long ago, though our judges and petty tyrant politicians have dug it up and killed it over and over again, I will play it straight today.

We still have something to celebrate. We still have a modicum of freedom, if we are willing to defend it. We have not lost forever the rule of law, if we are willing to work to get it back. And with all of our problems, our evil ways, our stupidity and laziness– even with all of it so obviously rampant– this is still the country where it is possible.

So, dear readers, God bless you. Happy Independence Day!

Feast of the Visitation, and Ordinations

Today is the great Feast of the Visitation. On the real calendar. You know, the Catholic one.

I read a meditation today on the “delicacy of Our Lady’s charity and humility.” We are called to imitate her charity and humility. May she ever aid us.

Today also marked the ordination to the sacred priesthood of 9 new Canons of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest by His Eminence Cardinal Burke. Among them are several who served as candidates in Saint Louis. Two in particular are in our hearts, who served here during the time our rector was battling cancer. One of them, Canon Stephen Sharpe, has been the seminarian our family has spiritually adopted and prayed especially for during all these years. Congratulations to him and all the newly ordained, and may Our Lord and Lady ever guide and shelter them.

God bless the Institute. Pray for priests!

Carl Reiner, RIP

I note with sadness the passing of Carl Reiner, one of the funniest comedians who ever lived. A genius, for whom I pray that he embraced the only faith that can save before he died. Our Lady has worked greater miracles than that. Also, now that he has passed, we will not fault him for his unfortunately less funny and way more obnoxious son, for whom we also pray.

To celebrate his genius, i will post here a couple of clips from his greatest film, Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid, starring one of the few men in the world funnier than he was:

Supreme Court Continues to Legislate Worship of Moloch

Imagine my shock– SHOCK– that the cuck appointed by the younger member of the Bush crime family sided with “the liberals” and struck down a very mild Louisiana restriction on abortion designed to “protect the health of the mother” who elects to murder her innocent child. Even using the word mother for such a destroyer of her maternity turns my stomach.

At least Kavanaugh and Gorsuch dissented. But of course, that’s the game. Let’s see how they vote when their vote would make a difference. Roberts is a traitor and a criminal against humanity. His rank betrayal of the rule of law that began with the Obamacare opinion continues with no end in sight. Sided with the liberals? He is the chief and prime agent of them. He makes David Souter (appointed by the head of the Bush crime family) look like Chuck Norris.

The court has doubled down on defying God evident in Divine and Natural Law.

We are well and truly beeped, humanly speaking. Weather forecast calls for 90% chance of fire from the sky. God help us.

But don’t give up! Be safe out there! We’re all in this together!

The Archdiocese Issues Statement In Defense of Statue of Saint Louis

Good, it is a good start, and must be followed up upon. The statement of the Archdiocese, via KSDK:

“The history of the statue of St. Louis, the King is one founded in piety and reverence before God, and for non-believers, respect for one’s neighbor. The reforms that St. Louis implemented in French government focused on impartial justice, protecting the rights of his subjects, steep penalties for royal officials abusing power, and a series of initiatives to help the poor.

“King Louis IX’s renowned work in charity helped elevate him to Sainthood. His daily suppers were shared with numerous beggars, whom he invited to the royal table. On many evenings, he would not let them leave before he washed their feet. He personally paid to feed more than 100 poor Parisians every day. His care for the sick was equally moving; St. Louis frequently ministered to lepers. He also created a number of hospitals, including one for the blind and another for ex-prostitutes.

“For Catholics, St. Louis is an example of an imperfect man who strived to live a life modeled after the life of Jesus Christ. For St. Louisans, he is a model for how we should care for our fellow citizen, and a namesake with whom we should be proud to identify. The sword on his statue is not raised for warfare, but rather is held with the blade down—a symbol of peace. In his recent statement on Racism, Justice and Peace, Archbishop Carlson said, in part:

“‘…Scripture tells us to turn our swords into plow shares. Let us turn our guns into metal. May that metal someday be the statue in our community that stands as a reminder that here, in the Greater St. Louis Region, we chose justice so that there would be peace…’

– Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson

Apostolic Administrator for the Archdiocese of St. Louis

“Peace is what St. Louisans hoped for in the new twentieth century when they erected the statue of St. Louis the King—and peace is what St. Louisans still strive toward in this century.

“The Archdiocese of St. Louis is encouraged by the winds of change that are at hand, but believes that this energy of change should be focused on programs and policies that will dismantle racism and create a more equal society for all races and religions. As Catholics, we believe that each person—no matter their race, religion, background or belief—is created in the image and likeness of God. As such, all should be treated with love, respect and dignity. We should not seek to erase history, but recognize and learn from it, while working to create new opportunities for our brothers and sisters.”

Yes, the last paragraph panders, or worse, shows a lack of understanding of the anti-civilizational– and that means anti-Catholic– revolution that confronts us. “Encouraged by the winds of change that are at hand”? I hope that was written by some PR modernist and not a man of the cloth. But still, at last the Archbishop is on record as opposing the desecration of a holy image of our patron saint.

It’s a start. A start. I thank the Archbishop for issuing this. It must be vigorously advanced.
