Mark Houck Acquitted - NOT The End Of The Story

Today, January 30 2023, news broke of the acquittal of Mark Houck of the bogus charges brought against him by the corrupt Biden administration, specifically through the Department of (in)Justice.  Recall that four months ago, he was hauled away by a swat team out of his home in front of his terrified children.

They tried to nail him on alleged violations of the FACE act.  Houck was well-represented by attorneys from the Thomas More Society.  They pointed out that Houck's alleged "assault" didn't even fit the definition of a FACE violation and that the deathscort who alleged injury (Bruce Love) was not in the good graces of the Planned Parenthood.  It seems that he violated Planned Parenthood's prohibition regarding engaging with pro-life people.  Imagine that! 

Now Houck is acquitted and pro-life people are rightly pleased.  However, several of them seem to believe that this victory is complete and that we can put this behind us.  I, as a front-line activist myself, beg to differ.  For too long we have contented ourselves with merely fending off legal attacks and winning defensive battles.  As is said in sports circles, though, the best defense is a good offense.

The DOJ brought forth a frivolous suit, most likely for the purpose of wearing people down.  I'm not sure they even anticipated a legal victory but just wanted pro-life people to expend time and money.  Well, maybe it's high time that we make them expend some of their resources.  I would think that the Houck family has more than sufficient grounds to file countersuits on account of the harassments that they suffered.

Not only am I publicly urging Mark Houck to file countersuit, but I am urging all pro-life people who have suffered hindrance and harm to go on the legal offensive.  Exercise your legal rights to defend yourselves, your fellow pro-lifers and your ability to do your pro-life work.

Of course that will take some money.  I therefore also urge donations to the Thomas More Society and other similar organizations to help them assist beleaguered pro-life activists.

Glenn Beck Interviews Taylor Marshall Regarding State Of The Church

Glenn Beck interviewed Taylor Marshall on his program yesterday.  They discussed some aspects of the Church's current situation, and Pope Benedict's book that was just released posthumously.  They went into some details regarding Archbishop Vigano's work for Benedict and how Vigano came to expose so much of the Church's corruption, particularly as it pertained to the now-disgraced Theodore McCarrick.  Please see below. 

By the way - the title of this clip is "How Vatican City's Dark Secrets Are Relevant To You".  Make no mistake, they ARE relevant to each and every one of us.  No one can excuse themselves from the obligation to inform themselves of such matters.  No one can pretend that what happens in the Vatican has no bearing on their individual life.  It most certainly does, as what happens in the Church can have decisive consequences for eternal salvation, particularly if they remain culpably ignorant of them.

Pell And Neumayr - Their Suspicious Deaths

Cardinal George Pell passed away ten days ago, on January 10, 2023.  He had only been released a short while ago while unjustly imprisoned on rather trumped-up charges.  Just before his death, the Spectator published what is now His Eminence's final article dealing with the working document for the upcoming "Synod on Synodality".  He had some choice, accurate words to say about the 45-page bloviation.  To wit:

"What is one to make of this potpourri, this outpouring of New Age good will? It is not a summary of Catholic faith or New Testament teaching. It is incomplete, hostile in significant ways to the apostolic tradition and nowhere acknowledges the New Testament as the Word of God, normative for all teaching on faith and morals. The Old Testament is ignored, patriarchy rejected and the Mosaic Law, including the Ten Commandments, is not acknowledged

"The Catholic Synod of Bishops is now busy constructing what they think of as ‘God’s dream’ of synodality. Unfortunately this divine dream has developed into a toxic nightmare despite the bishops’ professed good intentions."

As far back as 2014, over eight years ago, Cardinal Pell displayed his wariness regarding this plethora of "synods".  He called out some skullduggery by pounding his fist on a table and demanding that leaders "stop manipulating this synod".  Lo and behold, they backed down once they were shown to be charlatans. 

Last March the blogger Sandro Magister published a "Memorandum on the Next Conclave".  It had been circulating among the cardinals and was written under the pseudonym "Demos".  Magister stated on January 11th that Cardinal Pell was Demos.  The memo began with the declaration that "commentators of every school.. agree that this pontificate is a disaster in many or most respects; a catastrophe."  He then goes on to outline what he believes should be the mindsets of the cardinals during their selection of the next pope.

The officially-stated cause of the cardinal's death was "complications from hip surgery".  He allegedly had a heart attack.  I cannot find any definite statement of him taking the covid-cootie-jab, but I strongly suspect he didn't.  Being aware of the masonic forces that lurk within the Vatican, I cannot dismiss the possibility of murder, given the Cardinal's outspoken opposition to Francis' strange schemes.  There is talk that Pell stood to be influential in the next conclave; perhaps that is what some feared.

On January 20th, just a few days after the death of Cardinal Pell, we received news of another George who spoke truth regarding this pontificate.  George Neumayr passed away in the Ivory Coast, allegedly from malaria.  While he looked terrible in what turned out to be his last podcast, he mentioned nothing of being ill, nor did his prolific tweets hint at any serious sickness.  The corrupt bishops had reason to fear him, from their warped perspectives.  He wasn't afraid to approach them and ask them pointed questions.

Many Catholics and pro-life people are mourning the deaths of these two men and rightly asking prayers for the repose of their souls.  However, they are ignoring the elephant in the living room - the suspicious natures and timings of their deaths.  Not everyone is, though.  I'll say this plainly.  We must consider the very real possibility that these two men were murdered because they both were exposing corruption from within the Vatican.  Let's face it; we know that freemasonry runs rampant through the Vatican.  We have testimony from the late Bella Dodd about the subversives that she and others insinuated into the seminaries during the early 20th century.  Is is not very likely that some of them wormed their way into the Vatican?  Consider the origins of the Sankt Gallen mafia.

Will there be more?  We can't know the answer to that.  Will we be intimidated by all this?  We better know the answer to that.

For both men: requiescat in pace.

Is Catholic Charities Participating In Trafficking Of Vulnerable Immigrant Children?

Two very related articles are making their way through the internet this week, both regarding the shipment by the Federal government of unattended undocumented alien children.  I cannot call them "illegal aliens" for many of them are not of age to be culpable of border crashing.  The feds are, though.  

Judicial Watch, through a FOIA request, obtained a 16-page document from the HHS Department revealing that planes originating in San Diego were depositing these kids in multiple cities.  This is orchestrated by the Biden administration but has probably been going on for a long time.  Now consider that these kids are being deposited in some refuge centers - no homes, no families.  What is the nature of these "refuge centers"?  What do the feds intend for these kids?  Is it at all possible that this is sheer, unabashed human trafficking, with the aim of exploiting these kids?

About the same time, this article from the New York Post is making its way through the web.   They state that several so-called "charities", including Catholic Charities, are receiving millions of dollars (our tax dollars, that is) to facilitate this illegal border crashing.  This is no surprise.

Over the years, this blog and other outlets have been disclosing the gross misbehaviors of Catholic Charities, especially with regards to illegal aliens.  Here we read an account from 14 years ago, when an employee of Catholic Charities of Richmond (VA) took a female client of theirs, an underage alien, with the prior knowledge of the local bishop, for an abortion.  In 2010, Catholic Charities of Arlington covered up the fact that an illegal alien whom they were aiding and abetting engaged in drinking-and-driving (not the first offense) and caused an auto accident that killed someone in the other car.  The feds had their hand in it, too, for he was about to be deported but was released on his own recognizance.

At one time, I thought these isolated incidents were anomalies.  I was enlightened otherwise when the truth was revealed how Catholic Charities, particularly in those locales near the southern border, were being granted millions of dollars (again, our tax dollars).  Of course, some of those "immigrants" were muslim terrrorists (read all the links).  Some of that government funding has been coming from HHS, mentioned in the second paragraph of this post as coordinating all the dispersal of immigrant children hither and yon.

Again, what is their "end-game" for these children?  What in hell do they plan to do with, and to, them?  I just do not trust them to have the children's best interests at heart.  Quite the opposite may well be the case.  If these children are slated to be exploited, the bishops, through Catholic Charities, will be part and parcel, and just as guilty of such crimes.

The State Of Evil In The World

Below is a recording of a talk given by Father Chad Ripperger on January 5th at St Mary of Pine Bluff Catholic Church in Pine Bluff WI.  The topic of his talk revolves around the rampant evil in the world and inside the Catholic Church today.  He relates these matters to the disobedience of the admonitions given by Our Lady of Fatima.

I personally found it interesting when he spoke of the four sins that cry to heaven for vengeance.  I certainly understood how murder, particularly of the unborn and elderly, and homosexual vice fit into that.  One of the other evils is "defrauding the worker of his wages".  He stated that the onerous tax burdens laid on us by progressives in the government amounts to defrauding the worker of his wages.  It certainly shows another depth of depravity inherent in the "social gospel" that has been spoon-fed to us for decades and it makes much sense.

A ray of hope that Father mentions is the ever-increasing number of Catholics, particularly young Catholics, who are rediscovering their Catholic heritage through the Latin Mass.  I link now to a letter that Archbishop Vigano released yesterday that was occasioned by the death of Pope Benedict XVI.  He made no secret his displeasure regarding the proceedings from Vatican II and pointed out that Benedict's Moto Propitio played a pivotal role in making available the Latin Mass.

Rush To Judgment Regarding Pope Benedict XVI

No, I'm not talking of those who might be bad-mouthing the late pontiff.  Far from it.  I am quite baffled about those who have already declared him not only a saint but a Doctor of the Church.  Utilizing the canard of "not speaking ill of the dead", they poo-poo legitimate objections to their haste for the bestowal of these honors and in fact cast aspersions on those of us who do raise cautionary voices.

Let's face some unpleasant facts now, shall we?  When Benedict ascended to the papal throne in 2005, he asked people to "pray for me that I may not flee for fear of the wolves."  He had some knowledge of what progressive elements in the Vatican could do.  Yet he took the papal oath anyway.  Included in that oath is the promise to "keep without sacrifice to itself the discipline and the rite of the Church.  I will put outside the Church anyone who dares to go against this oath.."  He did do that, most notably with his July 2007 Summorum Pontificum that took the Tridentine Mass out of the evil clutches of progressive bishops.

However, less than eight years later, that changed.  He announced his rather odd and frankly, canonically irregular (if not impossible) resignation from the papacy.  Looking back, I think we can all see the evil hand of the Sankt Gallen mafia driving that whole thing.  Maybe we couldn't see it at the time, but no doubt Benedict did.  How could have not have known what was to follow after he left Peter's chair?  Perhaps he wasn't privy to all the details of their plans, but he must have known that they had their long knives out for Holy Mother Church.  He did not remain at his post to guard the Deposit of Faith.  Some argue that we don't know Benedict's real motives for so doing.  Be that as it may, could any well-intentioned motive have even mattered?

Some are now saying that because the papacy is now "no longer bifurcated" that Francis is now pope without a doubt.  Hold up a minute.  There remains the matter of compromised elections, that would render a papal election to be invalid.  I touched upon that in a post from seven years ago.  One correction to that post; whereas I assumed Francis' election was valid, I no longer hold that assumption.  I simply don't know.

The late pope will be buried later this week.  We must pray for his soul and for Holy Mother Church.  Here is a take on the matter from Michael Matt.
