Just one of myriad inane reactions from the catatonic left today.  This is one development I’d truly love to see, though I hold out absolutely no hope it will happen  Having said that, we can see from this reaction just how detached from reality the Left has become, if they think this is even remotely in the offing, however much I wish it were.  We’ll need a great spiritual awakening and renewal before such a sensible course of action has a prayer of occurring:

In light of this dystopian possibility in which birth control is hard to come by and abortions are no longer legal, women are already taking matters into their hands. On social media Wednesday morning, hours after the election was called, the ladies of America began urging each other to protect themselves against unintended pregnancy by getting intrauterine devices—commonly known as IUDs—while contraception is still covered under the Affordable Care Act.

It’s a sad day indeed when women feel there is a ticking clock on their reproductive and health care rights. But alas, that’s the America we voted to live in.

Female hysteria, much?  I tell you, these feminist prove the Victorian notions of women as delicate hysterics unfit for leadership roles or positions of power and authority more and more every day.  Thank God we dodged another Hillary bullet, if this is how her supporters think!  Poor feminists, they thought they were on the cusp of seeing abortion even more permanently enshrined as a made-up constitutional “right,” even to the point of forcing Christians to pay for this barbaric, ultimately selfish act, only to have their fondest hopes and dreams dashed on the hard rocks of reality.  But being a leftie apparently means never having to conform your thoughts to reality.  After all, this is the ideology that has told us for years that “women’s health” = murdering babies, over half of which are female.

We’ll be having some great laughs for days as we continue to witness the mass emotional breakdown of America’s left wing.  Such as………students burning the American flag in protest of Trump’s election at………..American University.  But remember, this the party of “rationalism” and cool, unemotional thought.  It’s not at all the party of spoiled three year olds who will mess their pants when things don’t go their way.

Go crawl into a safe space for a few years and come out once you’ve grown up.

………and His Mother, Patroness of the Americas, praised as well.

Last night was a stunning upset and a repudiation of the globalist, transnational, one-world order that elites around the world but especially in the US and Western Europe have tried to impose on increasingly unwilling populations policies that enrich and empower a narrow few while impoverishing great swaths of people.

Trump was very far from my ideal candidate.  I don’t know too many people not in the alt-right who were really behind him and convinced of a true conversion to conservative beliefs, but he was better than the demonic alternative with which we were faced – an alternative that extended well beyond the corrupt felon Hillary Clinton and her rapist husband to the entire progressive/socialist media/government/academic/cultural nexus.  It was a giant FU to gender theory, allowing adult men in little girl’s restrooms, safe spaces and trigger warnings.  And a well deserved one at that.

But as I noted yesterday, this hardly means we are saved.  It might mean, hopefully, that we are not doomed, however.  Under Klinton, we would have been, the enormous damage done during 8 years of government under the most extreme socialist ever elected president in this nation’s history would have been made permanent and irreversible.  With the Repubniks retaining control of the House and Senate – but narrowly in the latter – will some steps to control the border, terminate the nightmare fiasco of Obamacare, and repeal horribly damaging trade deals finally come to fruition?  One can hope, but the Repubniks have shown themselves to be uniquely unwilling to fight the progressive agenda even when the people give them repeated explicit mandates to do so.

And, as I noted yesterday, the principle problem that is consuming this nation like a cancer – it’s spiritual derangement – is not substantially improved by this election. We can hope things will not get dramatically worse, as they certainly would have under demon lady, but the rot still exists and Trump’s election is in a sense a confirmation of it.  30 years ago, a man with his atrocious personal morality would not have stood a chance of being elected.  Today, he can.  I’m gratified he won, but even that victory is a sign of how far we have fallen.

We shall see how things proceed from here.  I know many are excited and see great possibilities of some true rolling back of the satanic one world government/religion that has plainly been in the making from Rome to Washington, D.C., but whether those possibilities become reality is still a very uncertain thing.

For now, however, this is a time for celebration.  I was up till 2am waiting for Trump to finish the haggard would be queen.  My Lord, if nothing else, to finally be rid of that horrid, horrid woman is such a blessing.  May she never serve in public office again.  One would imagine the Qataris and Moroccans and Russian billionaires and others who made hundred million dollar donations to the Clinton Corruption Fund might be demanding a refund.  The schadenfreude – not really something Catholics should engage in, but impossible to resist at a time like this – has been sweet, delicious, and served up piping hot since about 9pm EST last night.  The liberal tears have been pouring like Niagara Falls – which makes an interesting contrast to the sense of resignation many conservatives/Christians had before the “miracle” happened and full evidence of the popular revolt against the self-serving plutocrats of the global elite was in view.  I hope Nigel Farage is right and that this is just phase 2 of a general worldwide rejection of the self-seeking elite who thought they had just about sewn up their permanent place in power.  That battle still has a very long way to go.

I also hope this election is the final nail in the coffin of the credibility of the leftist media.  They sold their souls to get Obama elected twice, and went all in, 100%+, for Hillary this time around, and still lost.  I pray that is a portent of things to come, that the self-anointed media elites will see their influence swiftly and permanently crater.

Even though Trump is very far from what one would call a moral man,  this is an election result I think Catholics can legitimately be happy about.  I know so many were praying so fervently – I’ll admit, I was on my knees much more about this election than I was either 2008 or 12, because this really seemed like this was it, the last chance to keep a chance! of this nation going off a cliff from which it could never return.  We’re very, very far from “happy days are here again,” but we’re also not playing a funereal dirge.

God must be praised in all things, in victory and defeat, but I am so very thankful that he had mercy on this nation and on the Remnant of faithful and decent people in this country.  I pray this is not a short lived victory, but just the start of a political, economic, and most importantly spiritual revolution – no, reawakening, in this country.  Either way, we need to remember to offer as many prayers of thanks as we did of heartfelt supplication.

In all things may His will be done.  I also want to thank the good priests and few bishops who encouraged their flocks to vote and to vote rightly.  There was a clear moral distinction in this election and, for once, a happy outcome resulted.

Now, pray God, may the victorious party finally implement the will of the people who put them into office.  We on the right tend to get fat dumb and happy after a perceived victory. This is not a time to relax and assume we have won, for the left and its spiritual master will never stop.  This is just the beginning, we must continue and even redouble our efforts.

But a few days of rejoicing is certainly in order.  God bless you all.

So Is It Over for the US of A? November 9, 2016

Sorry I’ve been away.  Work, yes, but a certain lack of motivation to blog, too.  There are momentous doings today and tonight, however, and I thought I could at least put up a post about that.

Reports are all over the map.  Some are claiming Trump is losing due to a poor ground game, others are saying he’s getting out the vote better than anticipated. Some say swing states are swinging left, again (how many swings in the same direction are required before a state no longer swings?), others that things are breaking for Trump.  Some NeverTrumpers have remained steadfast in their detestation of the man, others have come out in favor.  I predict……….a late night.  I think it will be close.  Can Trump overcome several million likely fraudulent votes?  I guess we’ll see tomorrow, or sometime.

One other thing I’ll predict: this country is probably too far gone for a political savior, as opposed to a spiritual One, but I do think the process of deconstruction into corporatist-socialist-authoritarian dystopia will be made irreversible with a felonious Clinton win.  I pray that does not come to pass, but at this point, I’m feeling somewhat detached from it all, as I have this entire election year.  Not because I don’t care, but because I think all this political stuff is a distraction from the real ails facing this nation and all of Western Civilization, which are of a much more spiritual nature.  Without correction of the spiritual cancer eating away at this country, it’s going to continue going to literal hell at an accelerating pace, and its final demise will only be delayed, not stopped and certainly not reversed, by a win for the “good” guys tonight.

Rorate posted some commentary from Fr. George Rutler, obviously persecuted by the Cardinal Archbishop of New York, Dolan, and I thought it was worth sharing, though most all readers have probably seen it already.  I did want to post it, though, because one statement caught my eye and I thought it deserved some commentary.  I always find great fruit and eloquence in what Fr. Rutler has to say, but there was one small part of his online sermonizing that I thought deserved a bit of comment.  Perhaps now that the polls are mostly closed or closing, this little bit of criticism of an otherwise very fine piece can be forgiven (emphasis Rorate’s, my comments):

Exactly eight years ago I wrote a column titled “The One We Were Waiting For” in which I referred to a book by Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson, The Lord of the World. That dystopian novel has been cited by Pope Benedict XVI, and Pope Francis said he has read it several times. The protagonist, if one can apply that term to an Anti-Christ, imposed a new world religion with Man himself as god. His one foe was Christianity, which he thwarted in part by using “compromised Catholics” and compliant priests to persuade timid Catholics.
Since then, that program has been realized in our time, to an extent beyond the warnings of the most dire pessimists. Our federal government has intimidated religious orders and churches, challenging religious freedom. The institution of the family has been re-defined, and sexual identity has been Gnosticized to the point of mocking biology. Assisted suicide is spreading, abortions since 1973 have reached a total equal to the population of Italy, and sexually transmitted diseases are at a record high. Objective journalism has died, justice has been corrupted, racial bitterness ruins cities, entertainment is degraded, knowledge of the liberal arts spirals downwards, and authentically Catholic universities have all but vanished. A weak and confused foreign policy has encouraged aggressor nations and terrorism, while metastasized immigration is destroying remnant western cultures, and genocide is slaughtering Christian populations. The cynical promise of economic prosperity is mocked by the lowest rate of labor participation in forty years, an unprecedented number of people on food stamps and welfare assistance, and the largest disparity in wealth in over a century.
In his own grim days, Saint Augustine warned against nostalgia: “The past times that you think were good, are good because they are not yours here and now.” The present time, however, might try even his confidence. Sands blow over the ruins of churches he knew in North Africa where the Cross is virtually forbidden. By a blessed irony, a new church is opened every day in formerly Communist Russia, while churches in our own formerly Christian nation are being closed daily. [Is it irony, or the natural effect of a people who were yoked for a lifetime under the demon of communism/hard leftism, and have not only rebuked tyranny, but have found it’s only true and permanent cure: pious Christianity?] For those who bought into the seductions of politicians’ false hopes, there is the counsel of Walt Kelly’s character Pogo: “It’s always darkest before it goes pitch black.”
It is incorrect to say that the coming election poses a choice between two evils. For ethical and aesthetic reasons, there may be some bad in certain candidates, but badness consists in doing bad things. Evil is different: it is the deliberate destruction of truth, virtue and holiness. [And I agree that there is a sufficient distinction between a very bad, even amoral man, and a woman who has proven over a lifetime she is, by human standards, irredeemably evil.  One might even call her deplorable.]
While one may pragmatically vote for a flawed candidate, one may not vote for anyone who advocates and enables unmitigatedly evil acts, and that includes abortion. “In the case of an intrinsically unjust law, such as a law permitting abortion or euthanasia, it is therefore never licit to obey it, or to ‘take part in a propaganda campaign in favor of such a law, or vote for it’” (Evangelium Vitae, 73).
At one party’s convention, the name of God was excluded from its platform and a woman who boasted of having aborted her child was applauded. It is a grave sin, requiring sacramental confession and penance, to become an accomplice in objective evil by voting for anyone who encourages it, for that imperils the nation and destroys the soul. [And here is where my bit of divergence comes in, and why I found it such a bitter pill to finally, in the end, have to vote for Trump simply out of resignation to stop an even greater evil.  At the Republican National Convention, they did not trumpet abortion for all at Christian taxpayer’s expense, but they did have an open, avowed sodomite proclaim how wonderful his lifestyle was and receive a roaring ovation.  This is one of the biggest sticking points some NeverTrumpers have had, and I can well understand their grave reticence to support a party, and a man, who openly advocated not just tolerating, not just permitting for prudential reasons, but celebrating, rejoicing in a sin that is as grave and, in some ways, even worse than mass child murder/genocide, because it involves a total dereliction of morals.  It is not reasonable to gloss over this as if it never happened.  No matter what the Republican party platform may say about the family and marriage, Peter Thiel’s speech and reception spoke far, far louder than any words on a website few, if any, ever read.]
It is also the duty of the clergy to make this clear and not to shrink, under the pretense of charity, from explaining the Church’s censures. Wolves in sheep’s clothing are dangerous, but worse are wolves in shepherd’s clothing. While the evils foreseen eight years ago were realized, worse would come if those affronts to human dignity were endorsed again. In the most adverse prospect, God forbid, there might not be another free election, and soon Catholics would arrive at shuttered churches and vacant altars. The illusion of indifference cannot long be perpetuated by lame jokes and synthetic laughter at banquets, for there is handwriting on the wall.

And I think that conclusion is true, that we as a Church and individual Christians do face unique threats from Hillary Clinton that make voting against her with the most viable candidate if not a moral requirement, at least very much the right thing to do for reasons of prudence.  But let us never forget how very, very, very far from the Catholic ideal Donald Trump is, and the fact that not much will change, culturally, tomorrow should he win tonight.

A different way to say that might be, if Donald Trump, while clearly preferable in a damnable two party system, is our best political hope, we have arrived at a nadir in this country I never expected to see in my lifetime.

I find my solace in these ever darker days in knowing that this place is an exile, a place of trials and tribulations and not at all my true home.  God will win out in the end, and we must trust in His protection and perfect knowledge of what is best for us.  Should the worst happen tonight, the world is not over, the sun will come up tomorrow, and we will have to be called to the same practice of virtue, faith, and penance that we are always called to.  In the end her Immaculate Heart will triumph and Jesus Christ will reign supreme over the entire world as the King He indeed is.

Opportet illum regnare!  Opportet illum regnare!  Pax Christi in Regno Christi!  Resurrexit sicut dixit!
