Rebutting Sorondo: Temperature Adjustments Account for Nearly All “Warming” in Government Climate Data July 25, 2017

Regarding the title, see my previous post.

There are two primary sources of data for the global warming “studies” trotted out several times a year by a media breathless to advance their ideology – those gathered by the US government (NASA and NOAA) and the UK’s Meteorology Office.  The data sets produced by these government bodies are all heavily manipulated – with virtually all the manipulation involving increasing temperatures recorded now, and decreasing those recorded in the past, in order to make supposed warming look greater than it really is.

Until recently, however, it was not known just how much of the warming in these “gold standard” data sets was due to manipulation, and how much was due to actual changes in the environment.  A recent study reveals that virtually all the recent “warming” in the government data is due to manipulation (which correlates with data from orbiting satellites, which data is not subject to manipulation and which has shown virtually no increase, and if anything, a slight cooling of late):

 

A new study found adjustments made to global surface temperature readings by scientists in recent years “are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data.”

“Thus, it is impossible to conclude from the three published GAST data sets that recent years have been the warmest ever – despite current claims of record setting warming,” according to a study published June 27 by two scientists and a veteran statistician.

The peer-reviewed study tried to validate current surface temperature datasets managed by NASA, NOAA and the UK’s Met Office, all of which make adjustments to raw thermometer readings. Skeptics of man-made global warming have criticized the adjustments.

Climate scientists often apply adjustments to surface temperature thermometers to account for “biases” in the data. The new study doesn’t question the adjustments themselves but notes nearly all of them increase the warming trend.

Basically, “cyclical pattern in the earlier reported data has very nearly been ‘adjusted’ out” of temperature readings taken from weather stations, buoys, ships and other sources.

In fact, almost all the surface temperature warming adjustments cool past temperatures and warm more current records, increasing the warming trend, according to the study’s authors.

“Here are your new ‘gods,’ O Israel!  The golden calves of manipulated data and political ideology you shall worship, and you shall have no other gods besides these” proclaimed the high priest of fornication and contraception, Archbishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo.

These outright lies are what this man (among many) holds up as “truth” against the constant belief and practice of the Church, founded by God to be His witness on earth to the Truth He Himself has revealed to us as the Son of Man.

These churchmen seek the praise and acceptance of the world and the abettors of the sexular pagan orthodoxy over the Truth of Jesus Christ.  There have always been men who have fallen into error, for as many reasons as there are errors, the praise and acceptance of the powers of the world always being a leading one. But never have the errors been so outlandish, so contrary to the Faith, and so transparently false (and so unspeakably evil, if one considers the poverty and misery that would envelop the world should the program of the priests of the false temple of climate change ever be enacted).

What is amazing is that, in spite of all this, these errors have won over the vast majority of those given enormous Grace by God and incredible power over souls in the offices of priest, bishop, and even the Chair of Peter.  A contrary and implacably hostile religion has entered into the Church and, in most regions, offices, and souls, successfully supplanted the True Faith.  And what is most amazing of all, is that this happened with – comparatively speaking – almost no resistance whatsoever.  That’s because the purveyors of errors came from within the leadership of the Church, and decades of careful programming had convinced souls that obedience, even to the point of nihilism, was the most vital virtue of all.

Yes, a tiny remnant remains faithful, but that remnant is, at present, of almost no consequence in the day to day life of the Church.  Not that I am discouraged or cynical, just realistic.  In fact, in spite of it all, I’ve always remained hopeful, trusting in Our Blessed Lord’s promise that the gates of hell shall not prevail against His Church.  My hope has, almost inexplicably, increased of late.  These guys only have the power over us we allow them to have.  For me, they may as well not even exist, except as fodder to make particular points.

Unfortunately, these promoters of a hostile religion DO have an impact on the souls of others, leading them into egregious, salvation-threatening errors.  Refuting their errors is a practical duty incumbent on souls with the means to do so.

More evidence of falsehood and manipulation in the climate change shakedown.  As if you needed more.

Papal Succubus Sorondo Epitomizes Leftist Inversion of the Faith July 25, 2017

I’ve written about deranged Leftist shill Archbishop Sorondo before.  He is that sad and pathetic kind of creature – not unlike our former bishop – who accords his belief system/outlook with the beliefs of his perceived master.  He is an essential nonentity who by aping powerful opinion hopes to gain power and influence for himself.  Thus, a succubus.  Worked like a charm for Farrell.

Sorondo is the very model of the modern major churchman in the other, absolutely necessary corollary aspect, as well: he conflates the doctrines of sexular paganism with the Doctrine of the Faith, subordinating the latter to opinion while elevating the former to the new, mandatory “law of the Church.”  So, contraceptive use and fornication are not grievous sins, but not believing in “climate change” is:

“From the scientific point of view, the sentence that the earth is warmed by human activity is as true as the sentence: The earth is round!” said Archbishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo.

The archbishop has been a consistent and zealous promoter of manmade climate change as a non-negotiable Church issue, despite the status of care for the environment as a prudential matter.

Climate change ideology continues to be contested as a ploy perpetrated with manipulated data by the left to enact environmental regulations and taxes.

Even so, Archbishop Sorondo dismissed deniers of climate change in a recent Vatican Radio interview as “a small, negligible minority.”………

……..Archbishop Sorondo went on in the interview to say that human-affected climate change was considered science. [And yet numerous scientific certainties of the past have been exploded and reduced to shreds by later discoveries.  Not that it even matters. This claim of anthropocentric climate change is NOT settled science by any stretch] He added that the pope not only has the right but also the duty to rely on science in addition to doctrine and philosophy in seeking out truth……

……….Archbishop Sorondo is a close adviser to Pope Francis and the Chancellor of both the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences. He has repeatedly welcomed pro-abortion and population control advocates to the Vatican for conferences under the pretext of the climate issue.

Note the connection – the demonaical ideology of “climate change” is not only used as a replacement for the actual sacred belief of the Faith revealed by Jesus Christ, but also as a weapon against that same Faith.  This climate change mumbo-jumbo is a deliberate vehicle of attack by the partisans of one (false, ungodly) religion against another (true, inspired) religion.  This is all about the continued inversion of what the Church believes, and is.  These men, these demoniacs and heresiarchs, are not crazy, or dumb, or unhinged.  If you understand their belief system and their objectives, their actions are entirely rational, understandable, and, yes, predictable.

Which makes the fact that Sorondo was consecrated bishop and appointed to his first influential positions by the reputedly oh-so-orthodox Saint John Paul II rather interesting.  Or maybe revealing is a better word.

Thank God this devotee of a different and hostile religion hits 75, and possible retirement, on Sept. 8.  If Francis George Bergoglio doesn’t make him a cardinal, first.  Not that his replacement is likely to be any better.  In fact worse is more than likely.

How Long Before Father James Martin SJ Comes Out As An Open/Active Sodomite? July 19, 2017

Discuss.  He may as well come out, he’s done everything but put up a billboard attesting to his proclivities and, probably, unchastity.

But the Vatican’s got his back, at least the heresiarch/demoniac Fr. Tom Rosica does.  I doubt Rosica says or does much of anything without clear direction from Francis.  You do the math.

One day, and that day may not be as far off as we fear, traitors/double agents like Martin and Rosica will be pitied and reviled by all good souls and even the Church as an institution. God will bring this revolution of self-interested sexular paganism in the Church to an end.  It’s only a matter of time.

How many souls are led to eternal suffering by the lies and errors of these men, however, is too terrible to contemplate.  May God have mercy on us all.

To know why former Dallas Bishop Kevin Farrell got his red hat, consider this: he endorsed Martin’s immoral book:

Who else do we find endorsing Fr. Martin’s 2017 repackaging of the New Ways message of the 1990’s? None other than three of Pope Francis’ most recent episcopal appointments: Cardinal Joseph Tobin of Newark, New Jersey; Cardinal Kevin Farrell, Prefect of the Dicastery for Laity, Family, and Life; and Bishop Robert McElroy of San Diego, California.

Farrell is a hardcore modernist and worker of amoral revolution in the Church and against all the souls alive in the world today. Whatever he pretended to be while Benedict was still Pope to get an appointment in Dallas is long gone.  But what would we expect from a protege of McCarrick?

And I’ve been reliably informed that Farrell more or less hand-picked his successor, our current Bishop Edward Burns.  Yippee.

UPDATE: Just read this in I Corinthians ii:

9 But as it is written: *That eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither hath it entered into the heart of man, what things God hath prepared for them that love him:

10 But to us God hath revealed by his Spirit. For the Spirit searcheth all things, even the profound things of God.

11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, but the spirit of a man that is in him? So the things also that are of God no man knoweth, but the Spirit of God.

12 Now we have received not the spirit of this world, but the Spirit that is of God, that we may know the things that are given us from God:

13 *Which things also we speak, not in the learned words of human wisdom, but in the doctrine of the Spirit, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

14 But the sensual man perceiveth not the things that are of the Spirit of God: for it is foolishness to him, and he cannot understand: because it is spiritually examined.

Martin, Rosica, the rest of their ilk, and, yes, Francis, are sensual men.  To them, the things of the Spirit, the constant belief and practice of the Church, are foolishness, because they have neither eyes to see, nor ears to hear.  They are blinded and deafened by their attachment to the “pleasures” of this world, and to its master.

Now it Makes Sense: Many of Europe’s Most Influential Leaders Childless July 11, 2017

Some people are childless, and not of their choice.  This can be a very painful cross for them to bear.  But in this age, the vast majority of adults without children are childless by choice.

I think it speaks a great deal to Europe’s ongoing descent into chaos and literally insane government that so many of Europe’s most prominent leaders are childless.  The current leaders of the arguably the four most powerful countries in Europe – France, Germany, Italy, and Britain – are all childless.  It speaks to the dominance of sexular pagan belief in Europe and the strange desire for self-annihilation so many Europeans (leaders or no) seem to have these days:

James McPherson, writing in the Washington Examiner, makes a remarkable observation: the leaders of Europe have no children. France’s Emmanuel Macron has none. Same with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British prime minister Theresa May, Italian prime minister Paolo Gentilon, Holland’s Mark Rutte, Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon, and Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission. Sweden’s prime minister Stefan Lofven has no biological children.

The prime minister of Luxembourg is also childless. I mention him not to cherry pick, but because it means that of the six founding members of what evolved into the European Union, five are now led by childless prime ministers or presidents. As George Weigel says, this would have been unimaginable to one of the founders of modern “Europe,” Konrad Adenauer, who was the father of eight.

It’s also unimaginable in the U.S., at least for the time being. President Trump has five kids. There hasn’t been a childless American president in my lifetime.

It is very strange to me that people would elect leaders over and over who, in a very real sense, have no great stake in the future of their country.  Not only do those leaders lack a vested personal interest in the future state of the nation they lead, but they also represent a sort of gotterdammerung all too prevalent in the West today, a sense that today is all that matters and the future be damned.  Even on the strictly utilitarian basis of setting an example for the people of the country to emulate, they fail.  Many European nations, afflicted with terminal birth rate declines especially among the native populations, have resorted to financial incentives to try to entice women to have children.  But the message is obviously a mixed one, with most Euro governments also taxing citizens for provide “free” or highly subsidized contraception and abortion.

If corporate and political interests want to flood Europe with reliably cheap workers (or more souls for the welfare roles) and statist voters, the fact that this policy will, sooner rather than later, result in the extinguishing of Western civilization matters not a whit to them, because neither they, nor their non-existent children will ever have to experience the negative consequences of this policy.   Of course it is possible for a leader to have a nation’s genuine interests at heart whether they have children or not, but I think as an overall trend it is disturbing at best, and an profound indication of Europe’s ongoing nihilist desire for self-destruction at worst.

It’s also completely unsurprising.

Leftist “anti-fascists” applaud speech entirely composed of Hitler quotes July 10, 2017

At a “Trump impeachment” rally in impoverished, decaying, and debt-ridden Chicago, a Kekistani-type troll gave a speech composed entirely of Hitler quotes.  The speech was moderately well received, but, interestingly, the organizer of the demonstration was quite impressed and asked the speaker to come back and deliver more quotes from Mein Kampf, the Nuremberg Rallies, and other such great events in the history of culturo-political leftism:

Hilarious.  Reading these quotes, the socialist-leftist origins of National Socialism are readily apparent.  The Left has succeeded amazingly in perpetuating the lie that the Nazis were somehow a “right wing” phenomenon, and then directing attention away from the evils of the Soviet Union, Maoist China, and other unmistakably leftist hellholes, and getting most all of the West to see in Hitler history’s greatest monster (compared to Stalin, Mao, and other communists, he was a piker).  And yet his language is exactly their own.

In point of fact, the American Left and its dominance of the democrat party pose an infinitely larger threat to what remains of American liberty and freedom than Donald Trump or any other non-extreme-fringe creature of the right.  The extreme fringe has become the middle in the democrat party today.  When they imagine portents of violent repression and government-enforced ideological compliance, they are but projecting their own dreams and aspirations onto their ideological opponents, yet again.  In modern political history, the Left has killed exponentially more than the right in the pursuit of its illusory, unobtainable paradise on earth.

And yet…….and yet……it is not entirely without basis to describe the USCCB as the democrat party at prayer.  Knowing that tells you all you need to know about the state of the Church in this country.  And compared to their counterparts around the world, the US bishops lean somewhat conservative.  Thus the state of the Church today, since the sudden and open coup engineered in the mid-60s.

Millions of Illegal Immigrant Votes Probably Cast in the 2008, 2012 Presidential Elections June 22, 2017

Horrifying, but I’m quite certain this is the case.  Another post on a quite different topic in an unrelated publication noted the massive shift the democrat party underwent on immigration between the mid-2000s and today.  10-12 years ago, major factions in the demonrat party were in favor of limitations on immigration and controlling the southern border – by fence or whatever means.  But since then, the party has embraced the same hard, absolutist position on totally unconstrained illegal immigration as the Catholic episcopate – a few exceptions aside – has.  They have done so for wholly political reasons, as dems have known for 20 years that demographics among the native-born population (and especially the white population) were entirely against them.  Politics correlates very strongly within families, and core members of the dem constituency were not having babies, while conservatives were.  By 2040 without massive changes to the American electorate through immigration, the Dems would be a permanent minority party at the national level.

So, much as Euro elites have done, when the electorate did not correspond to their ambition, leftist elites decided to find a new electorate rather than reconsider their failed religious beliefs.  It seems this effort has been a big success, as a recent report has assessed that as many as 6 million illegal aliens voted in the 2008 presidential election  – a huge factor, but not quite enough to, by themselves, account for Obama’s victory – and another 4 or 5 million voted in the 2012 election (enough that Romney may well have won that election. We must also consider the other electoral fraud demonrats regularly engage in, from ballot-stuffing to repeat voting to blocking conservatives from voting.  It is little wonder that demonrats stridently oppose both constraints on illegal immigration and voter ID laws – they cannot win outside their narrow coastal enclaves (plus Chicago) without massive electoral fraud:

A report from the conservative/libertarian think tank Just Facts shows that up to 5.7 million people who cast their ballots in the 2008 presidential election were non-citizens. The group used data from a Harvard study as well as U.S. Census Bureau data to arrive at that conclusion.

Just Facts also estimated that up to 3.6 million non-citizens cast their vote in 2012.

Just Facts’ conclusions confront both sides in the illegal voting debate: those who say it happens a lot and those who say the problem nonexistent.

In one camp, there are groundbreaking studies by professors at Old Dominion University in Virginia who attempted to compile scientifically derived illegal voting numbers using the Harvard data, called the Cooperative Congressional Election Study.

On the other side are the professors who conducted the study and contended that “zero” noncitizens of about 18 million adults in the U.S. voted. The liberal mainstream media adopted this position and proclaimed the Old Dominion work was “debunked.” [Given 18 million – it’s probably far higher than that – illegals in this country, there is ZERO chance that zero of them have fraudulently voted.  Democrats are so focused on – and cover up with such fervor – their get out the vote efforts in Hispanic neighborhoods, and demonrats so freely admit their fraud in other areas, there is no way illegals are not voting.  I’m quite certain millions are, and illegals underlie demonrat hopes to turn Texas “blue” or at least purple. We must get that wall built, NOW]

The ODU professors, who stand by their work in the face of attacks from the left, concluded that in 2008 as few as 38,000 and as many as 2.8 million noncitizens voted.

Mr. Agresti’s analysis of the same polling data settled on much higher numbers. He estimated that as many as 7.9 million noncitizens were illegally registered that year and 594,000 to 5.7 million voted.

It is little wonder that democrats and the political-cultural elite they control are so hell-bent on keeping the mass influx of immigrants continuing unabated.  Their entire electoral program hinges on it, at least so long as they remain wedded to elitist, leftist political/religious dogmas. I see little chance of their core beliefs changing.  So I pray President Trump and the few good Republicans in Congress start focusing ALL their efforts on building the wall and getting a handle on this mass influx. The very survival of this nation as it has always been construed depends on it, if that survival can even be attained at this point.

There is, however, a certain irony from the Catholic point of view in seeing the historical protestant core/elite of this country swamped in a flood of Catholics.  Of course, the Church is so weak and rotten at present that most of those fall away a few years after arriving here.  I had some sad experience of that lately.  Actually, sad, but then happy.  A young Hispanic man at our local TLM parish described to me how his parents had come here in the early 80s, gotten amnestied in ’86, and then become protestant and started a family. This young man was thus raised protestant, but their protestant sect house in Grand Prairie started going liberal – as they almost all tend to do over time, since they are man-made institutions (not that our God-made institution is without its human flaws) – and he started learning about Catholicism.  Long story short, he converted, and he managed to get most of his family to revert, but they were shortly disgusted by the liberalism, false doctrine, horrid liturgy and other grave problems they found in Novus Ordo world.  And so that is how this young man found himself at the Fraternity parish in Irving.  Wonder of wonders, his elderly grandmother who pined for an authentic Mass for decades after emigrating to the US finally got to experience it just a few days ago.  When they started going back to the Catholic Church in the US, grandmother wondered at the plethora of Eucharistic ministers, the casual and immodest dress, and the poor quality of the liturgy.  She was mightily pleased by her experience at Mater Dei, apparently.

God can draw straight with very crooked human lines.  A family fell away by immigrating to the US, but managed to return, and quite possibly find a much more robust practice of the Faith, by coming to this country.  The TLM is rarely available in Mexico, at least outside Mexico City and Guadalajara and a handful of other places.  Our God is great.

Canadian Gov’t to Steal Children from Home if Parent’s Don’t “Accept” Their “Gender Identity” June 8, 2017

Whatever those loaded terms mean.

If you like your kids, you can keep your kids, provided you do and think and say everything the almighty state commands at every instant.  And no, this is not much of an exaggeration, with Ontario – whose laws almost always wind up being put into place at the national level in the People’s Republic of Canadia – now passing a law that says children may be removed from a home if parents do not “accept” – and who gets to decide the terms of that acceptance?!? – their child’s new “gender identity,” no matter how flighty, bizarre, peer-pressure-induced, or destructive it may be:

A Canadian province has passed a law that gives rights to the government to take away children from families that don’t accept their kid’s chosen “gender identity” or “gender expression”.

The Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017, also know as Bill 89, was passed in Ontario by a vote of 63 to 23, The Christian Times reported[Do note the Orwellian language.  Yes, they support families by ripping them apart, the better to allow the state to make permanent devotees of the religion of sexular paganism starting at age 3.]

The law, which replaces old laws governing child protection, foster care and adoption services, instructs all child services and judges, to take into consideration a child’s “race, ancestry, place of origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.” [This is ugly in so many respects. This balkanization into post-modern eternally warring aggrieved groups is the work of satan.  Also note the overtones of anti-white racialism in all this.]

Minister of Child and Family Services Michael Coteau, who introduced the bill, said “I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently.” [Once again the Orwellian language.  Not a parent, not a person whose very soul is intimately wrapped up in the fate of the child they helped create, but a “caregiver.”]

“If it’s abuse, and if it’s within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops.” [And this will never be abused for political ends, or see children’s (and parent’s) lives permanently up-ended after they fall prey to some demonic online hellhole like Tumblr.]

The old law used to allow parents to “direct the child’s education and religious upbringing.” The new bill, however, amends such rights of the parents[Right.  But it also will never, ever be applied to muslims, only to Christians.  Also, shame on you Canada for your British-inspired and damnable conception of rights, believing it is up to the state to hand out to parents (and all other citizens) whatever the state deigns to give, rather than being the God-given right of every soul born on this earth to raise their children to the best of their ability and in line with their own conscience.  It is thus Canada has no equivalent to the US First or Second Amendments.]

It now emphasizes a child’s “identity and allows parents only to “direct the child or young person’s education and upbringing, in accordance with the child’s or young person’s creed, community identity and cultural identity.” [So if white parents adopt a black child they have to teach him ebonics?  If they adopt a child of muslim parents (however unlikely that may be) they have to raise him as a muzzie?]

Ontario children and youth advocate Irwin Elman celebrated the bill and said it signals a “paradigm shift” and creates a “child-centered system of service” with “the commitment to anti-racism and children’s rights.” [Let me rephrase: “Now we leftists get access to thousands of kids so young they’ll be ours forever.”]

Jack Fonseca, a political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition, meanwhile, criticized the new law.

I’d do more than criticize, I’d be profoundly freaked out and looking for somewhere to emigrate to, but it’s rapidly becoming clear there are few places left in the former West/Christendom that aren’t on an identical path. Colombia’s been fairly stable for a while now.  Cartageña’s supposed to be nice. How about Panama?  Every day is 12 hours long, no more, no less!

Tragically, what happens in Canada, doesn’t stay in Canada.  It tends to show up here about 20-30 years later, or whenever the electorate gives the Leftist party the presidency.

Muslims, Incensed by Truth Regarding the False Prophet Mohammad, Cry Bigotry June 6, 2017

This is the billboard that is the source of muslim ire around the nation:

Every single statement made on that billboard regarding the false prophet and conceiver of the demonic sect of islam is true.  It is that man’s evil vision, literally an inversion of Christianity, that continues to cause mass chaos around the world on a daily basis, with over 100 non-muslims being killed by muslims for religious reasons DAILY worldwide.

And yes I have in previous posts laid out numerous reasons why Mohammad was a completely false prophet (for one, not a single miracle worked to substantiate his claims of divine inspiration, then there are the satanic verses (of the early Koran, later expunged), where Mohammad fell under satan’s influence/domination, then there are the murderous exhortations throughout the Koran, then……….) and inventer of a demonic, deliberately anti-Christian sect.

But muslims gonna muzzle, so they are shouting bigotry at these stark revelations concerning the founder of the most backward, repressive, totalitarian, murderous major religion on the planet:

A billboard on the east side of Indianapolis is catching the eyes of drivers, along with the ire of local Muslim groups.

You can spot the sign from the southbound lanes of I-465 near the Washington Street exit. It claims to list the “perfect man,” but opponents say it degrades the Muslim prophet Mohammad.

“I was a little disappointed when I saw that,” said Farial Khatri of the Islamic Society of North America.

Opponents say the billboard’s bullet points are meant to disparage the Muslim faith and its primary prophet, Mohammad.

“We’ve seen them in New York and several others cities on billboards as well as other transit ads,” said Kahtri.

There’s no company name or identifying group on the display, but Google “Truthophobes,” a word seen at the bottom of the billboard, and you’ll find a range of websites rife with anti-Muslim messages.

“We do support free speech, but we do realize this is also rooted in bigotry,” said Kahtri.

Other groups say they want to do more than just speak out against the display. The Muslim Alliance of Indiana says it’s planning to raise money to put up its own billboard nearby to spread a message of peace and kindness.

Note, they don’t refute a thing said on the billboard.  They cannot refute the message, so they shoot the messenger.

Regarding this counter-campaign, these typically operate on a similar basis of half-truths and selective revelation.  Signs like the below have appeared in certain parts of Dallas:

These signs are placed in locations that obviously seek to capitalize on any frustrations and indignations held by certain minority communities.  But notice they don’t speak of islam’s treatment of women as little more than chattel.  Nor the rampant abuse of children in countries ruled by sharia.  They’ve learned selective messaging very well from their leftist allies/abettors.

If you’d like to take a stand against creeping sharia in the US, right here in the DFW area, there is going to be a protest against sharia this Saturday June 10 2017 at  10a and runs to 2p.  Location is corner of Abrams and Centennial in Richardson.  More details here.  The protest location is directly across the street from a major mosque.  I think most people park at the “Christian World Church” at the same corner.  It is catty-cornered from the mosque.

About this protest.  Previous editions have involved armed Americans.  The most recent one featured some scuffling against antifa.  That one was weird, the muslims turned against the antifa guys.  But at any rate be prepared for something less sedate than your average prayer vigil outside a Planned Barrenhood or March for Life.  These things can get intense, with lots of in your face shouting and pushing.

I sorely wish I could go.  I’ve been wanting to attend one of these for a while now.  They originated in Irving then spread to Richardson. I’ve also wanted to have a go at antifa. But I have a funeral to attend at noon the same day.

Regarding the muslims, I would be polite but firm that they belong to a horrifically erroneous sect.  Explain their dire need for conversion.  I would not be violent, rhetorically or otherwise.  As to antifa, be as violent as you like.  At the last protest they hired Black Panthers to be their “muscle,” since they so pathetically lack their own organic enforcers.  I would strongly recommend body armor and headgear if you have any.  Also a respirator that filters most inorganic gasses (like CS) and something to protect your eyes.  Antifa love to use the bear spray.

But if  you’re local and planning on going, you’re welcome to the Kek flag if you want to borrow it.  I do hope there is a good turnout, as Benjamin Franklin said, we have a republic, if we can keep it:

h/t reader skeinster

Speaking of Kek, some more greatness to get you fired up for the protest:

Thanks to reader T for sending me this link.  I have so little time to read many blogs like I used to.  But below I excerpt (too much) what I believe to be a very helpful and insightful post from Mundabor on how to remain faithful in an age of extreme rebellion and sabotage against the Faith, even by those given great influential offices and responsibilities in the Church.  Mundabor says to share this info, so I copy the most relevant parts, but please click on the link so he knows it is being widely read.

And away we go (my emphasis and comments):

Francis is about to appoint more Cardinals. It is a slow process of erosion, from Cardinals who do not believe in God but feel obliged to fake their faith to Cardinals who do not believe in God and feel obliged to demolish the faith.

At this point it is fair to say that even if Francis were to die tomorrow, the probability of getting a Tagle would be very high. Or a Schoenborn. Or some other CINO. Bar a Divine intervention, the demolition of the Church is going to continue……..[I’m afraid I must concur.  I don’t think it will significantly improve in my lifetime, and will probably become even worse.]

What is, therefore, a poor Catholic to do? I suggest the following:

1. Realise that God is punishing us for the madness and rebellion of Vatican II. He is making us swallow the entire bottle of the poison we wanted to drink. This will teach us a lesson all right. [It may be argued by some that the rebellion is somehow separate from the actual product of Vatican II, the several documents that came out of the Council, but this is a general statement.  There has been a mass rebellion against the perennial belief and practice of the Faith since Vatican II.  It actually was well underway before, but exploded into realization during and after the Council.]

2. Resolve to live and die in your faith no matter the scale of the destruction. [Dang right.  Don’t let them drag you down. Keep the Faith.  Use the tools in previous posts. The revolutionaries can wreak all kinds of destruction.  They can lead souls into error or confirm them there.  They can cause millions to fall away. But you have a special grace, at least some attachment to the constant belief and practice of the Faith (I presume, if you are reading this blog and this post.) Even if they take the TLM away somehow, do not give up the Faith.  Keep going, doing the best you can, whether that means an “illicit” TLM somewhere or muddling through in the Novus Ordo.  No I don’t think God is going to damn any souls who assist at illicit TLMs under severe duress.]

3. Realise that your individual salvation is not decided by Tagle or Schoenborn or Bergoglio. It is decided by God, who expects you to collaborate with His grace towards it.

4. Understand that God’s ways are such that no one, whom God has decreed worthy of Salvation, will be lost because of Francis. [or his predecessors or successors] God does not allow Francis to decide for Him concerning the eternal fate of anyone. Therefore, an age of unbelief and clown Popes is simply an age in which many are Reprobates. But they always were. They were Reprobates from all eternity. God has decreed already that they will refuse, out of their own volition, to collaborate with His grace. Not one of them will be lost because of Francis; rather, they were born in the Age of Francis because God has decreed that they will be lost. [I will admit detailed understanding of the Catholic view of predestination is not my strong suit, but I did not think it Catholic belief that He decrees in advance that souls will be damned?  That sounds kind of Calvinist to me? Yes God knows who will be lost and saved, but I did not think it was a positive decree from God, as that would impede free will. At any rate, I would rather say, God has allowed Francis to become pope because of the sinfulness of fallen men (the electors principally, but the entire Church in its weakness of faith), and as a special challenge and source of Grace for the faithful.  Every time has its own challenges, however, as Mundabor notes below, we live in a time of material plenty, but of spiritual and moral depravity.  Others lived in times of moral rectitude and spiritual fruitfulness but great material want.  Which is more difficult is not easy to discern.]

5. Fight your battle with determination and perseverance, but do not expect to see any improvement during your lifetime. We don’t know how long this punishment will go on. We can do no other but endure it in faith and fight our little battle for as long as we breathe.

6. Realise that this determination will cause you to collaborate with Grace and “merit” (as far as your part is concerned) Purgatory one day. [and even ascending to the Beatific Vision if we are particularly faithful, yes?] Paraphrasing the famous statement, blessed are those who carry on for decades believing what their forefathers have believed in the face of generalised treason from the clergy. Inasmuch as we can gain merit for ourselves, there must be more merit for carrying on for an entire lifetime in an age of sabotage.

7. Use the possibilities modern technology and the wealthy, peaceful conditions of the West give you. You are not living under bombardments, or in time of famine, or pestilence. Nurture your Catholicism on the endless sources you find on the Internet, buy good Catholic books, deepen the faith in its many aspects. React to Francis by becoming more Catholic. [I generally agree, but if you find reading numerous blogs and websites about the atrocities ongoing in the Church gets you down, as strange as it might seem for a blogger to say, STOP!  I have seen people twist themselves off into outright apostasy over the travesties they see occurring in the Church in these days. DO NOT LET THAT HAPPEN TO YOU!!]

8. Ask the Blessed Virgin to intercede with the Lord so that your faith may be strengthened no matter what. Resolve to let your faith grow, not falter, at every papal assault. Pray your favourite Saint every day that he may also intercede for you. [Or Saints. I particularly counsel devotion to St. Joseph, who is such an amazingly powerful intercessor]

9. Reflect that even if you have a very long life, it will be but an instant compared to the eternity afterwards. Whatever pain FrancisChurch gives you, resistance to it is an investment with huge rewards.[!!]

10. Think of this every day: nil inultum remanebit, nothing will remain unpunished. All those popes, Bishops and cardinals who betray the faith and die unrepentant will pay the most atrocious price for their rebellion. When their antics enrage you, reflect that God will not leave anything unpunished.

While, I think, praying for their conversion. I actually look upon my prayers for Francis’ conversion or replacement as a work of mercy, so he will stop piling up offenses against God.  No matter how much destruction they wreak, no matter how much they hurt and offend us, we cannot hope for eternal punishment for any soul.  It is unjust and uncharitable to do so. All have sinned.  We may be afflicted with particularly wicked and unworthy men as leaders in the Church right now (and for the past several decades), but I do not wish hell or upon any of them.  Even their time in Purgatory, should they be so fortunate, are terrible to consider.  As is my own.

In total, a few quibbles aside, great advice from Mundabor.  I thank him for this post.  I pray you find it useful, too, and please make your own suggestions, for the benefit of all, how to survive and even thrive in this dark time. Everyone needs encouragement from time to time.

 

Awesome – Whittle Destroys Nye in Battle of the Bills May 31, 2017

I remember back in college, having the pathetic choice of only 30 or 40 basic cable channels to choose from, being annoyed that it seemed like Bill Nye The Science Guy show was on about 4 different channels at least 8 hours a day.  I couldn’t surf through the lineup without seeing him at least twice, it seemed, just about any time of day.

I never found his program compelling, as it was full of that same smug condescension that leftists always resort to when talking to children.  Not only that, but its self-importance was over the top.

And yet from that program, an entire generation of kids, broadly speaking, is apparently convinced that Bill Nye – whose educational credentials (BSME) certainly do not exceed my own, and I have decades experience actually designing and fabricating highest-tech products in my bag – is one of the world’s great experts in not just one particular field of science, but all scientific disciplines generally.  But Nye has never been satisfied to limit himself to being the Newton of our age in every scientific discipline.  He has always been very glad to mix his increasingly leftist politics in with his purported scientific laws (until the science becomes inconvenient to the leftism, then the science gets jettisoned).

So now he has a new show on Netflix (with the incredibly humble name Bill Nye Saves the World), ostensibly for kids (kids with an extensive porn habit, apparently, judging by the material he produces), but which is really little more than a vehicle for Bill Nye – world’s greatest genius guy! – to engage in half hour disjointed political rants.  That is, when he’s not pushing wanton immorality and gross perversion on his supposed target audience.

But Nye’s favorite leftist hobby horse to ride has always been global cooling I mean global warming I mean climate change (whew! – we’re covered!).  In this area he is simply another reliable climate cultist with few original thoughts.

Now Bill Whittle knows a thing or two about science. He has had a long association with the aerospace industry and also has worked in a lab for over 20  years, over a decade longer than Nye’s brief career at Boeing. And he utterly obliterates Nye in this great video, Bill Nye the Science Lie.  Not only does he obliterate the Left’s climate change cult (once again), but he also punctures the preening arrogance of the so-called “rational set” on the left, who hold themselves so far above those stupid superstitious conservative Bible-humpers (interesting, then, that liberals are far, far more likely to believe in things like Bigfoot, space aliens, power crystals, astrology, etc):

Now that is a thorough and complete takedown.  Always helps to get the rest of the story the Left and their PR department (the media) don’t want to share.
