The American social slide out of order and into disorder is not irreversible and not inevitable and not dooming of the nation or of the religiosity of the citizenry, unless we all just stand by in silence and let it continue unopposed. If we are Catholic, we are supposed to speak up on important issues. But we don't, and that's the problem.
What lit my fire on this topic is the article in Crisis Magazine, Catholic Ties to the American Public Order Continue to Unravel, by Kenneth L. Grasso. Not that the author is just standing by; quite the opposite, in his case. The article itself is standing up and speaking out in opposition to the trend. But it's the negative tone and seeming surrender to the inevitability of the eventual defeat of order that I take issue with.
It does not need to happen.
Just because we're a minority does not mean we can't do anything about our situation. In point of fact, history shows that minorities, when dedicated and committed to action, win more than they lose.
Because they were allowed to win. Because of too weak resistance.
Today, you can't show me the "Conservative" who does not accept and tolerate the blatant atheistic Marxist ideology of the whole Marxocrat Party and so many sitting officers in all three branches of Constitutional American Government.
The fact that Marxism is anti-American is now irrelevant and forgotten.
Today you can't show me the "Conservative" who does not openly brag about the fact that he has family members or friends or employees or close associates and colleagues who are "gay", and who considers the normalizing and social elevation of homosexuality in culture to be the result of social "Progress".
The fact that homosexuality is unnatural and harmful is "Old School".
The Truth of it all is lost. Truth does not matter any more.
Again, it doesn't have to be this way.
Comrade President Obama (peace be upon him) was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for merely existing. He in turn awarded the Medal of Freedom to Ellen Degenerate for "Heroically" bringing blatant homosexuality to regular TV broadcasting.
And of course, Madam Hillary told us that her new order will demand that all of our “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs” must be “changed.”
But here's the important thing in this: They lost. Trump won.
And if Trump is not perfect, at least he is listening to us, and moving in the right direction, however haltingly and with however many missteps along the way. To those who damn him for being no Catholic and a poor example of any kind of Christian, look at who he just defeated. Purer forms of unabashed evil may have never been seen in America.
What the incorporation of evil Marxist ideology into the American psyche has brought us to is Secularism and Separation of Church and State, unconstitutional though they both may be. And through them, the ascendance of Moral Relativism. And once again, it doesn't have to be this way. Both of these legal monsters were and are unconstitutional, but they were not resisted enough, and so they stand, now just accepted, unrecognized as problematic, and completely unopposed. An unrecognized enemy ideology. Running the country.
In war, the enemy most likely to take you out is the one, unrecognized, standing right beside you.
Mr. Grasso correctly describes the rise of the Sovereign Individual in the new "Post Christian" order of things, emphasizing individualism over the common good, subjectivism over objectivism, and, of course, secularism over religion. This, he correctly points out, has given rise "the ideology of the sovereign self: a human being is simply a sovereign will free to make of himself and the world, whatever he chooses."
And that, of course, can only end in total chaos and disorder. The planned and worked for Marxist-Machiavellian pre-revolution situation. And that is why I do not share Mr. Grasso's pessimism regarding our national and world future. There is another fact to consider:
Mr. Trump cannot stand disorder.
Whatever else he may be, President Elect Donald Trump is an orderly man. His life and his businesses are well ordered. Whether through listening to what some of us have to say about it, or through his own natural inclinations, he will oppose chaos and disorder. And if and when he sees the root of all this disorder, he will attack that, too.
What he needs to learn, and what we need to pray that he learns, is that, in Constitutional America,
Only strict Constitutionalism can restore order in America.
American national salvation is going to require:
As Catholics, we should be leading the way in this actual war that is still not even widely recognized as being a war. And this war is being waged against enemies that are not even widely recognized as being enemies. But it is a war, and everything, especially freedom, is at stake here.
At the very root of it all is the same ancient unchanging question:
If we Catholics cannot correctly answer that ancient question and show it by putting our faith to work, standing up, speaking up, and openly opposing Satan and all his evil works, in clear, unambiguous, unfiltered, un-PC language, then Satan wins again. By default. The worst imaginable way to lose both liberty on earth and everlasting life.
Pray for President Elect Trump, that he might save America in spite of herself, and pray that more American Catholics might find a backbone.

THE PLAN: Trump camp to be outraged
Electoral College votes December 19. E.C. may elect Hillary
If E.C. elects Trump, then incitement of Trump camp outrage will simply be postponed (brought about another way).
Trump Nationalist camp outrage -disappointment will lead to widespread violence.
Naturally Globalist, Obama regime, Hillaryites, black power groups, many college students, liberals, immigrant groups, Muslims and MSMedia will crow that the Trump camp is totally to blame for the violence. Trump camp will also be accused of being Russian tool.
Obama regime will: Claim emergency powers, suspend Constitution, end "sovereign" USA.

That could be one of many possible plans aimed at the same goal. There are as many "Plans" as there are permutations and combinations of evil Globalist and Marxist conspirators with all their multi-varied factions of Useful Idiots and Agent Provocateurs.
The problem with all such plans is their utter unpredictability, because unpredictability is the one constant descriptor of any purposely incited chaos and disorder. That is the nature of chaos and disorder. Once the mad dog is off the leash, there's no telling who he might bite first, or last.
The real danger is, at least the enemy has a plan. We don't seem to have one.
If you want to build a completely independent and personally owned actual website, like this one, this is how you do it.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

The Trump Phenomenon Pages
Donald Trump rose in the public estimation because he started talking about stopping the illegal invasion of foreign intruders into America, which was not only allowed, but encouraged by the Obama regime and the Democrat Party, and not stopped by the Republican Party. Untold millions were pouring across our Mexican border, for government benefits. The American government was doing this on purpose, and elements of the Catholic Church and others were supporting it. That is the single issue that put Trump at the top of all political polls and kept him there so long.
We Gotta Impeach Trump, for Being Elected, Among Other Crimes. We were Nailing Down the Coffin Lid on American Capitalism, Building True Socialist Justice and Saving the Planet, and He Stopped the Whole Process!
Satanic Unreason in Modern Liberal Thought. Satanic Unreason, Unreality and Insanity rule the Left, in philosophy, theology, material science, mathematics, politics, psychology, you name it. Is Trump instinctively above it all?

Trumping the Media, Trumping The Establishment, and Trumping Marxism. President Elect Trump is Trumping the System that has been running us into the ground, and he is just Trumping it "naturally".

Why does Flynn need Legal Immunity? Because the Legal Process is so Corrupt. So long as the Senate, the House and Courts, Judges and Justices up and down the line are driven by Political Party Agenda and not by the Constitution or the Law as written, Truth does not matter.

Amnesty Schmamnesty! Feelings are feelings and the law is the law. "Feelings" and "Values" and "Who We Are" and other Freudian-Marxian tricks are not the law, and they do nothing for National Security other than to harm it.
