With suspicious frequency, Conservative American Catholics wake up to some piece of news that elicits the response "What the hell happened here?"
John Roberts, presented to be a strong Constitutionalist, Conservative, Catholic Jurist, looked to be an excellent candidate to take the position as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. And the Senate confirmed him in that position. Then, his first act as Chief Justice, was to cast the deciding vote to "Constitutionalize" an obviously and blatantly anti-Constitution and anti-American Obamacare law, which was and is glaringly in violation of our Constitution, the supreme law of the land.
And we all said, What the hell happened here?
Is the law nothing? Is our Constitution open to such wild and preposterous interpretation? Do oaths of office mean nothing? Was his vetting valid and was he as he presented himself to be, or was he deceiving us, and a traitor to America from the very start? The damage he did to America with that one action is incalculable. That violation of trust is so glaring as to be impeachable, for Roberts and for all Justices who voted against the Constitution.
By now, as from the beginning, those of us Constitutionalists paying attention and still capable of critical thinking know full well that Comrade President Barack Hussein Obama, peace be upon him, is a committed Marxist-Leninist who consistently favors Islam and opposes Christianity, which, of course, makes him absolutely anti-American and anti-Constitution. So our only real "what the hell happened" moments with him were after his two elections as President.
And, by now, those of us with half a brain know that the Republicrat Party, with John Boehner and Mitch McConnell in the lead, is committed to Bipartisan Treason, and will eventually, one way or another, sooner or later, cooperate with and not oppose the Marxist-Leninist agenda of the Marxocrat Party. What all that shows us is that the Marxocrats openly oppose the Constitution they falsely swore to uphold, and the Republicrats will not defend the Constitution they falsely swore to uphold.
Election after election, we elect candidates we were given every reason to believe to be solid, moral, conservative, Constitutionalist candidates. Election after election, these very candidates cooperate with the ongoing destruction of the nation, keeping the borders open, supporting amnesty for criminal aliens, increasing and not cutting the budget, increasing and not cutting the debt, promoting rather than opposing immorality and indecency in law, supporting rather than attacking violations of Constitutional rights of citizens, cutting and demoralizing the military rather than supporting it and building it up.
And every time, we all say, What the hell happened here?
It's all too frequent and too consistent to be coincidence.
But it isn't bad enough that our once upon a time representative and Constitutional government now uses our own tax dollars against the Constitution, and against us and all we believe in and hold dear.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), which we all, once upon a time, assumed to be absolutely Catholic, uses our charitable dollars against us and all that we hold dear, and against all that the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches. Members of the USCCB cannot possibly be ignorant of the moral abominations and subversive organizations paid for out of CCHD and CRS "charity" collections. They are all willing cooperators in this great and evil deception of the laity, and this bankrolling of pure evil, through fraud.
To stand silent in the presence of evil is to speak.
The late Pope Saint John Paul the Great, stalwart champion of Truth and Freedom, fearless enemy of Godless Marxism, raised a slew of supposedly conservative devout Catholic Bishops to the college of Cardinals, to help ensure unflinching, determined and unchanging support of the Sacred Deposit of Faith, in protecting the unchanging Church Doctrine and in the election of future Popes.
And now we have Pope Francis, who gives every signal that he favors the lies of Godless Marxism over Truth and Freedom, and a seeming majority of Cardinals who not only agree with that movement, but who also support Mortal Sin, from contraception to homosexuality to adultery. And so here we are again.
What the hell happened here?
Each time I speak with Cliff Kincaid and Jerry Kenny, most recently as spoken of in the Global Delusions discussion, I go into the conversation thinking the Church, the world and America are in serious trouble; but after the conversation I am convinced that the situation is even worse, in every area and on all fronts.
Everyone - or at least most everyone - among the ordinary citizenry, among politicians, among clergy - seems to uncritically bless diversity over cultural homogeneity. Unlimited, un-assimilated diversity is socially destructive. That's just obvious. Why don't we all just automatically know that? It doesn't end with cultural or ethnic diversity, no; wild diversity of morality and public propriety are also uncritically blessed and encouraged, in an almost universal way. Moral relativism rules. We no longer have any recognizable national moral standard. I wonder if the Catholic Church, throughout the world, still has a recognizable moral standard that is being lived out in Catholic lives. Maybe in most dioceses in Africa; certainly not here. Probably not in Europe.
How are we to do that if we no longer recognize Evil when we see it?
I woke early this morning, very troubled, with Tocqueville's prediction for America pounding in my head. He wrote that the American Revolution succeeded, where all others failed, because the liberated American People were "Good", and the reason that they were good was because they were Christian. And he predicted that when the American People ceased being "Good", the American Revolution would finally fail. Well, look around.
The American People are no longer "Good" or we would not be at this point.
The Republicrat Party is certainly not "Good".
The Marxocrat Party is "Evil".
The USCCB appears to be "Evil".
The vast majority of American Bishops are certainly not "Good" if they stand silent with Evil, big, bold and proud, right in front of their faces.
Pope Francis is either a dupe of Marxism, a simplistic and idealistic fool, or Evil. Probably just like the majority of the American People, and perhaps all other Peoples.
Like the Pope, the People are not beyond redemption; but the problem is, I don't see anyone leading the way.
God help us.
These are awful thoughts to share on the Memorial Day weekend. But I had to get them off my chest. Blessings, love and courage to all who wear or who ever wore the uniform. Special prayers of uplifting support for all wounded, and all who bear the mental scars of war, all who suffer sudden instances of hyper-vigilance, combat readiness or other problems, that you may be at peace, and know that you are loved, and you are the beloved of God.
We pray to God this day that all who fell and all who will fall somewhere in defense of the American Constitution and the American Idea, will see the face of God; that He will see not their sins, but their magnificent sacrifice. For no greater love hath any man than this: that he lay down his life for his friends.
To all military and all veterans, may the Lord bless you; may He be gracious to you and may He make His face to shine upon you. Now and forever.

I continue to anticipate that not only the American people will awaken to the threat but further, I await the recognition of the church of the peril that confronts this nation and people and the role of leadership that the church has traditionally exhibited in such times of tyranny and despotism. Must America completely fall into the abyss before the threat is recognized? The pulpit appears to be immobilized from a perception of losing its tax exempt status and is fore fitting its role in honoring the word of God, in the process the soul of America is at risk.

My thoughts exactly. Nothing entangled Church and State more in America than Woodrow Wilson's Marxist inspired 16th Amendment, establishing the Income Tax. Religions worry about their tax exempt status, restricting their Constitutional free speech, and politicians, through the political Parties that control them, worry about contributions from unions and crony organizations and donors who are supported by or coexisting with Catholic "charities". Passing the Fair Tax bill would go a long way toward breaking the underhanded dependency and the shadowy political linkage between Church and State.
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.

Papal Imperfection Pages.
While Popes enjoy the charism of Infallibility when teaching on faith and morals, as established in the unchanging Deposit of Faith, they remain human, and imperfect, as was Peter and the original Apostles. Popes can err when not teaching on faith and morals, and whenever speaking on matters outside the Deposit of Faith. Two of these areas, particularly troubling in these days, involve Papal favor shown to areas of Godless Marxist ideology, and to the belligerent, invasive, domineering and menacing false religion of Islam.
Who will drain the Catholic Swamp, and how, exactly? Trump is draining the Washington Swamp; what about the Catholic Swamp? Our last perfectly capable Pope abdicated for apparent political reasons, certainly not health. Was he Swamped?
Will Pope Francis become a Self Deposing Pope? "The pope himself, if notoriously guilty of heresy, would cease to be pope because he would cease to be a member of the Church."--Catholic Encyclopedia
Red Pope Francis and the KGB's Liberation Theology. The Russian KGB developed "Liberation Theology" as another path to Global Revolution. Pope Francis may be a victim of it, or, he may be a perpetrator of it.
Vatican War: Are we witnessing a Papal Melt Down? Pope Francis and the "Spirit Of Vatican II" Cardinals now openly attacking Orthodox Cardinals in the now open-to-public-view Vatican War.

There is No Hell, because Pope Francis said so. Right? "No one can be condemned for ever, because that is not the logic of the Gospel!" --Pope Francis
Popephobia: A Catholic Mental Disorder. (I think I have it.) Popephobia is related to American Obamaphobia, and German Merkelphobia. They are all closely related social disorders. (Could they be a Social WMD?)
The Blind Guides leading Western Civilization toward the pit of Human Barbarity. "Establishment" Party Members and "Establishment" USCCB Bishops are not all Evil Traitors; most of them are Deceived Blind Guides.
Unreason in the Church: Who Is Evangelizing Who? On Unreasoned Gathering with Sinners: Who is Converting Who? Is the Church committing "Merciful" Suicide?
Loosey-Goosey Theology, Wishy-Washy Leadership, and Anything Goes Culture. Pope Francis' Exhortation, Obamunist Cultural Diversity, LGBTQP+ "Sophisticated" Social Engineering, and "Whatever" Global Culture.
Why Did Vatican II Ignore Communism? The veil of mystery over the Council’s omitting any reference to Communism has gradually been lifted
I must oppose the pope on globalism, but not on faith and morals. Recent comments of the pope on globalism, calling for a world political authority, is absolutely the last thing the world needs.
The Smoke of Satan is in the Church in America; has it reached the Vatican too? The Smoke of Satan conceals the true object of the Progressive Agenda.
On the "inevitability" of a Perfect Global Government in a "New World Order". Is this "New World Order" idea divinely inspired, or is it the ongoing work of Satan?
Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium, and Evangelizing for World Communism. Evangelii Gaudium started out on Catholic Evangelism, but ended up Evangelizing World Communism.
The Treacherous Global Delusions of Marxism-Leninism. Is Pope Francis a duped "Useful Idiot" of Marxism, is he Delusional, or is he actually In On It?
Musings on the deep treachery of the most trusted among us. Deep Treachery: Were they all deceiving us from the beginning, or did they somehow "turn" after being raised to positions of trust?
Crony-Catholicism? Really? The USCCB is advancing Obamunism? Say it ain't so, Joe! It's bad enough that we now have so many Marxified Bishops, but now they actually act against the faith?
Cliff Kincaid interviewed Vic on TV about Pope Francis and his Marxism. Addressing Marxist and Islamic ideology creeping into Catholicism.
If Francis is a Communist Pope, how does that affect Catholic Faith and Morals? Exploring the links between Comrade Obama (peace be upon him), Pope Francis and Communist Cuba.
Roman Catholic Marxism? Excuse me? Who is evangelizing whom? Roman Catholic Marxism explores the Politics of Private property v. Collective property (i.e., Marxist Redistributionism.)
On the Vague Anti Authoritarianism of Pope Francis And the Relationship between Vague Anti Authoritarianism in High Places and Moral Depravity in Culture
Do we have an anti-American Pope? A Pro-Obama, Anti-Capitalist, Redistributionist, Utopian, Pro-Illegal Alien, quite consistently Anti-American, Pope Francis?
Delusional Pope Francis, molding world culture into one undefinable hodgepodge. Does the Pope want International Communism, or just a border-less, all inclusive, nonsensical, global non-culture?
The Religion Politics Nexus: If the Religion is not true, Politics become evil. For Martin Luther, Politics drove Religion. For Pope Francis, Religion drives Politics. Or does it?
Pope Francis just said WHAT? Excuse me? Can anyone out there help me reconcile what Pope Francis just said with Catholic Revealed Truth?
Marxists running the Vatican's Pontifical Academy of Social Science? Died in the wool Marxists in the Vatican's P.A.S.S. No wonder Pope Francis favors the Socializing Frauds of "Sustainable Development", "Climate Change", etc.
Disorder and Confusion from the White House. And from the Vatican, too? The growing disorder in Obama's America, and in Pope Francis' Catholic Church.
Pope Francis receives an Open Letter calling for his Papal Resignation. "Year of Mercy" begins with an Open Letter: An Urgent Appeal to Pope Francis to Either Change Course or Renounce the Petrine Office.
Globalist Pope Francis' Marxist Program to End All Sovereign Nations. Our Globalist Pope leads the attack on all National Sovereignty to bring an end to all national borders in favor of Total Global Disorder, ostensibly for the good of the Planet and the Poor.
Looking more closely at Pope Francis' chosen Papal Pals. If a critter walks like a duck, talks like a duck and is constantly seen in the company of other ducks, the logical conclusion is that he most probably is a duck.
Globalist Stupidassism in the Vatican. Globalist Fraud after Hoax after Scam, all promoted in the Pontifical Academy of Science and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences "Workshop on Biological Extinction."
On the new (to me) heresy of Popalitry. False belief that a Pope can do no wrong leads to Pope Worship.
Do we have a Diabolically Controlled Pope? Every time he opens his mouth, he makes himself a fool.
The Dubia Aftermath shows that Pope Francis still doesn't get it. Non-response to the Dubia means a Warning; non-response to that means a second Warning, and finally, a non-Pope Council to depose the Pope.
"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
