Our ardent following of Glenn Beck began cooling off when he glommed onto the fatally flawed Charles de Gaulle differentiation between patriotism and nationalism:
which is ridiculous, when applied to the single word nationalism.
What de Gaulle was describing was not nationalism, but the National Socialism (Nazism) of Hitler's Germany. There is a big difference between the nationalism of a Hitler or a Mussolini and the nationalism of the USA. Non-Socialist nationalism is love of a whole nation - not just the people, but the people of the nation and the nation's form of government. In the USA, that means love of the American Constitution, the nation's only real ruler.
Nationalism equals Patriotism, pure and simple. And Patriotism is nothing more than love of country, and certainly not hatred of anyone.
And we pretty much stopped following Glenn Beck when he went "Never Trumper" because of Trump's "Populism" and his "Nationalism", in which Beck foresaw some form of Fascism or Nazism rising.
But, you see, Hitler never really was all that popular. For instance, he never won a popular election in his life. He had his raving throngs of mesmerized followers, as does Crazy Bernie Sanders today, but they never represented a majority in Germany any more than Crazy Bernie's followers represent any kind of election-winning majority here.
In point of fact, if it had not been done by the use of Marxist diabolical skulduggery and corrupt political trickery neither Hitler nor Mussolini, nor even Lenin for that matter, would have ever risen to dictatorial ruler-ship over their nations. (There was no "popular revolution" in Russia; it was really a coup; a sudden take-over and decapitation of the government by a few daring men.)
And note this well: to condemn populism is to condemn the democratic process in government, because democratic elections just happen to be national popularity contests.
You cannot be anti-nationalism or anti-populism and be a true American patriot. The simple reason is that America happens to be a nation, and her Constitutional government is popularly elected. The only existing non-Marxist, non-Islamic alternative to American nationalism and populism is globalism.
Therefore, Glenn Beck is, at best, an anti-American globalist, whether he knows it or admits it or not. And global government is just as antithetical to Constitutional America as is any form of Marxism or any form of Islam.
My only reason for picking on Glenn Beck here is to illustrate how an American who sees himself as a red, white and blue patriot, can actually be un-American or anti-American and not even be aware of it. None of us are perfect, and all of us are subject to falling into any of the same theological, political and ideological traps laid by the evil one. Particularly so in this age in which the Cultural Marxism that owns and operates our very education system so slyly corrupts our own history and world history in all of our classrooms, our text books, our minds and in our collective social psyche.
All forms of Marxism are Socialist, and that means that all forms of Marxism are anti-Capitalist.
Marxists hate the American Constitution because it precludes rulership by men, and all Marxists mean to disestablish whatever form of rule exists and establish their own individual form of rule by man. The real, hidden goal of Marxism is not utopia, by tyranny.
Marxism is Machiavellian.
And that is precisely what the American Marxocrat (formerly Democrat) Party is all about.
The differences between American Constitutionalism and Marxocratism are stark and clear.
The one, single thing that all forms of Marxism hold in common is opposition to Capitalism. That includes Communism, Socialism, Nazism, Fascism, and yes, American Marxocrat Party-ism.
Again, all Communism is is Socialism brutally enforced on the citizenry. And all any form of Nazi-Fascism is is Socialism mixed well with corrupt forms of Crony-Capitialism and brutally enforced on the citizenry.
Note well that President Trump is no Socialist of any variety; indeed he is the exact opposite of any form of Socialist: he is a Capitalist. And all Marxists of all varieties despise him for it.
It is this thinking, this opposition to flag-waving, this popular anti-patriotism fed by the old "patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel" canard that feed the mistaken popular equation of patriotism with jingoism. It is why the already anti-American elites find real American patriots to be boorish and backward, and perhaps even dangerous.
It bears repeating: None of us are perfect, and all of us are subject to falling into any of the same theological, political and ideological traps laid by the evil one. Particularly so in this age in which the Cultural Marxism that owns and operates our very education system so slyly corrupts our own history and world history in all of our classrooms, our text books, our minds and in our collective social psyche.
And that is doubly true in Catholic education and even in Catholic seminaries.
We have already spoken of Democratholcism in describing the Marxocrat Party's program of nationalizing of Catholicism. One good example of a modern day practicing Democratholic is, of course, Nancy Pelosi.
Unlike a Catholic, a Democratholic is anti-family and therefore anti-human culture, leading the nation to national death while pretending to be leading us all to an eventual Utopia. If it opposes, attacks or destroys the normative human family, the Democratholic will promote it and defend it.
Pro-contraception; pro-abortion; pro-homosexuality; pro-euthanasia; pro-hedonism; anti-authority; anti-morality; pro-revolution; pro-Darwinism; pro-Freudianism; pro-climate-change-hysteria; pro-global-government-to-the-rescue.
The Marxocrat Party openly champions all these things; the current corrupt Catholic hierarchy supports them with winks and nods, at the very least.
But this attempt by a political party to subvert and convert Catholicism is a small potatoes problem compared to the evil subversion and conversion spreading through the Church, through the now seemingly thoroughly corrupted clerical order acting on its own.
First, we now have our (perhaps) first Communist Pope, after previous Popes have condemned Communism. Equally bad for the Church, we have Catholic Clerical Faggotry, we have Criminal Catholic Clerics and we have a rising Homoclericalism that seems to be dominant in the Catholic hierarchy, concealed and protected, at the very least, by Pope Francis.
The Catholic Church in America today appears to be just as much under the evil influence of Sorosianism and Alinskyianism as is the Marxocrat Party itself, and as is the Marxocrat Party's own owned and operated Deep-State Shadow Government that is conspiring with the Party and with the Culturally Marxist Mainstream News Media to take the Trump Presidency down.
But the Church, too, like the nation of America, has its own illegal, heretical and conspiratorial deep Catholic Shadow Government, which, like the Marxocrat Party itself, is Marxist and Hedonist.
The leaders of the Marxocrat Party - the Obamunists and the Clintonistas - and their operatives involved themselves and their Party in attempting a Vatican Regime Change to bring the Church into alignment with their own evil political objectives and programs.
We cannot know (yet) to what extent they succeeded and how much their efforts helped bring about the unusual retirement of Benedict XVI and the equally unusual election of Francis, but we do know that they made the effort.
And We The People, and We The Laity, have had hell to pay ever since.
Good order in society has been displaced; disorder and chaos now rule.
Men now enter the lady's room at will, and are given the legal right to do so. "Genders" that do not even exist in reality are given legal rights superior to our Constitutional rights.
"Outed" or "Public" Homosexuality and other sexual perversions are now not only legitimized, normalized and enculturated, but celebrated, encouraged, applauded and hero-worshiped. And given legal rights superior to our own Constitutional rights.
A homo or other pervert can slander and insult us all they want to, but if we say one derogatory word about them, we have committed a "hate speech" faux pas, if not a hate-crime.
Hedonism today may only be addressed in positive terms, not negative, and the First Amendment may be damned.
It's the same thing with race. "People of color", always excluding the color white, are granted rights superior to our Constitutional rights. In the pretext that white is not a color, non-whites can slander and insult white people all day long, but if one single negative word is ever spoken about any non-white, again, it will be a "hate speech" faux pas, if not a hate-crime.
All based on an educationally inculcated false history of the white race.
All minority races may say, free speech for me, but not for thee.
It's the same thing with all the earth-sustainability, environmental-doom, climate-change, life-on-earth-is-doomed hysteria over a giant, global political fraud. We are not allowed to speak one negative word against recycling, banning fuels and other such nuttiness, because the climate-change nuts have legal rights that overpower our own Constitutional rights, and our own simple common sense.
Because George Soros, Pope Francis, Madame Hillary and Comrade Obama (peace be upon him), the UN and the EU said so.
It's the same thing with abortion. Anyone who speaks a public word against abortion is roundly condemned as a hater, and an opponent of women's right to choose, which, again, is now superior to our own existing Constitutional rights. And, superior even to the unborn citizen's Constitutional right to Life.
(The simple question is whether whatever is growing in the womb of a pregnant woman is human or not. If it is human then it has rights. The DNA says it is human; the pregnancy says it is alive. And if it is human and it is alive then it has Constitutional rights. Case closed.)
Truth is absolute. The Catholic Church is absolutely the sole source of ultimate truth. And yet we have a Pope today who condemns Absolutism as "rigidity", and we have a powerful American political party who condemns Constitutional Absolutism.
We The People never should have allowed evil to even be present among us. There is nothing wrong and everything right with shunning evil, and extricating it from our midst where it cannot be corrected. We have made the case for banishment.
We should have listened to Joe McCarthy instead of demonizing him as a wild conspiracy theorist. When the Soviet Union collapsed and the Soviet archives were opened, it was revealed that McCarthy was right, in everything he said. His giant list of "Communists and fellow travelers" was right on the money.
Yes, that means his "blacklist" was correct. Yes, that means Charlie Chapman, Lucy and Desi, Henry Fonda, etc., etc., etc., and much of the Hollywood nobility were Communists. Sowing subtle seeds promoting Marxism and demonizing Capitalism, and subtly tying Capitalism to Nazi-Fascism in the minds of their audiences.
Helping the already Marxist education system to do its evil work.
So, we let Satan get on the bus, and now he's in the driver's seat, taking us where we do not want to go. We never should have let him get on; now we have to get him off, and he has not intention of getting off.
You might think that the globalist, pro-Marxist, pro-Islam, anti-Nation UN and EU might be more anti-Christian, antisemitic and anti-American than America's own Marxocrat Party, but you would be wrong. The Clinton political machine and the Obama political machine own and opeerate the Marxocrat Party and the Deep State permanent government.
In the inner-world of Communism, the Clintonistas and the Obamunists are political (and that means mortal) enemies. But they ally with each other against their common enemies, which are Christianity, Israel and the USA. You would be hard put to name the foreign enemy of the USA the Marxocrats do not support against America. From Lenin and Stalin to Mao, to Fidel, to Ho Chi Minh, to Khomeini to Soleimani.
Comrade Obama (peace be upon him), don't forget, was raised by Communists and educated by Islamists. He was paid by George Soros to do Alinsky organizing against America. And Madame Hillary, too, is a Soros-supported Alinskyian masquerading as an American. She, more than anyone, Alinsky-organized the whole Marxocrat Party against America.
The whole goal of their Iranian nuclear deal was to ensure that Iran got the bomb, used it to destroy the nation of Israel and start killing the Jews.
What else could that "deal" have possibly intended to accomplish?
This evil era of ever expanding indifferentism, syncretism and forced multiculturalism has got to be terminated, in the Church and in America. The Church, and America, need to usher in a new era of polarization and division.
Just look around at the current political landscape and the current ecclesial landscape, leading into the 2020 Presidential election.
We have openly avowed Socialist Marxocrat Party candidates. It doesn't get any more anti-American than that, you might think; but you'd be wrong. All of them are Globalists. Some of them claim to be "moderate", i.e., somewhat less Socialist than the current leaders of the pack. they want to more slowly ease America into Socialism, rather than just slam the door on American citizen liberty and property with their election.
And none of them are Communist enough for the perpetually angry and revolutionary Marxocrat Party's up and coming Angry Bitch Squad.
All of them are opposed to the Second Amendment. All of them favor all the sins of hedonism, including sexual licentiousness and perversion, abortion, contraception, euthanasia, eliminating national borders and the enforcement of any immigration and customs laws, legalizing dope, emptying prisons and asylums, redistributing private property (wealth; income), eliminating income and wealth "gaps" (an impossibility), etc.
It was by Marxocrat Party action that "Urban Renewal" projects eliminated the skid-row flop-houses where drunks and derelicts found affordable shelter. It was by Marxocrat Party plan that free dope and free needles were handed out to addicts. It was by Marxocrat Party plan that convicts were turned loose, and that psychotics were released from asylums. Marxocrat Party controlled jurisdictions are the ones with self-declared "sanctuary city" status, where criminals run rampant.
Go to the districts supposedly represented by the likes of Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi to see the ever increasingly typical Marxocrat-run cityscape: thousands of doped-no-hopers overdosing and dying on the streets; piles of human Schiff and discarded used needles on the sidewalks; psychotics, illegals and freed criminals urinating, defecating, vomiting, laying about and panhandling on the sidewalks in front of all the businesses in downtown areas.
That is the chaotic state to which Marxocratism is moving America.
The Marxocrats oppose even the simplest application of the rule of law.
It's little different in the Church, where we see "Catholics" spreading anti-Catholic religious chaos.
"Catholic" Fr. James Martin speaks everywhere promoting sodomy and sodomic relationships as "Catholic" doctrine, and he gets away with it.
"Catholic" Bishop Robert Barron speaks often of the zero population in hell, to not worry about it, because probably, everyone goes to heaven in the end, and he gets away with it.
"Catholic" Pope Francis backs Barron's theory up, de-emphasizing the prospect of hell, because "that is not the mind of God", and he gets away with it.
And this despite the words of our Lord and only savior, "No man cometh to the Father, but by me."--John 14:6
No one should be the least bit surprised that the traitor John Kerry is undermining American foreign policy by telling the Iranian government to not worry and hold on, because the Marxocrats will soon unseat President Trump. That's what he does. Once a traitor, always a traitor.
Anti-American American journalists, with Communist Walter Cronkite in the lead, all saw Kerry's Paris treason as a good thing.
And they will all keep right on opposing America so long as they are allowed to get away with it.
The hell they're not. No Marxocrat criminal in high elected or appointed government office has ever been prosecuted for any crime they have committed, including even treason. No one has yet been indicted for crimes against the Trump presidency that began being committed by the Marxocrats and their deep-state operatives the day he was elected.
Nothing happened to them after the Mueller report derailed their treachery. Nothing happened to them after the Inspector General report revealed their crimes.
Now they're saying "just wait for the Durham investigation to complete", almost boringly, and, once again, I'll believe it when I see it.
The crimes are glaring and obvious, and nothing is being done about them.
And it's the same thing inside the Catholic hierarchy.
Why, in the holy name of God, is the criminal monster Theodore McCarrick not in prison?
Don't stand there and tell me no one is above the law.
There is another law they (and we) will all eventually answer to, the ultimate law from which there is no escape. But here in this life, true justice is up to us, and we are falling down on the job and failing miserably in that regard.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Print, sign and send The Letter, and make our Church Catholic again.
Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
