Eeyore’s Cabinet: Living in Our Kingdom of Lies

Part Two

By: Victor Davis Hanson

Victor Davis Hanson // Private Papers

June 6, 2021 


There were a few more lies we lived with in our Kingdom of Untruth.
The Satanic Andrew Cuomo DeificationOver last summer and early fall 2020, Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo reached mythic media proportions. His ingratitude was enshrined as New York, “get-used-to-it, buddy” chutzpah. Yes, he momentarily feigned gratitude that Trump had listened to his hysterical daily rantings about the streets littered with corpses unless, right now, immediately, Trump sent a hospital ship, a tent-city hospital, thousands of ventilators, and protective equipment. And Cuomo got them all. Yet mysteriously he did not seem to use them much. As the 2020-election campaign geared up and his name was dropped as a key cabinet secretary or even VP, Cuomo dropped his daily attacks on the hapless Mayor De Blasio and turned on his former benefactor Trump. Or as NPR put it, “The regular briefings helped buoy his approval ratings in New York and make him perhaps the country’s most recognizable Democratic leader in the struggle against COVID-19.”
Cuomo seemed to ride a perfect summer of better luck. No one yet really knew about his Dr. Death rerouting of infectious Covid-19 patients into the Petri-dish confines of long-term health care facilities, where thousands of weak and elderly were simply wiped out by his executive order. 
And the first coronavirus spike was seemingly over. Summer was passing with fewer cases, and Cuomo was yakking it up with his professional journalist brother Chris on CNN as they misled the country about their respective lack of ethics.
Hollywood was enthralled with the Dr. Robert DeNiro-like tough-guy “acerbic” governor who did not suffer fools gladly. So they crowned him with an Emmy for his “masterful” press, ego-driven, narcissistic briefings and news conferences. Or in the words of the Emmy Awards CEO: 
“People around the world tuned in to find out what was going on, and New York tough became a symbol of the determination to fight back.”  The canonized multitalented Cuomo was not only a politician who out-Trumped Trump, spat out De Blasio, and mesmerized Hollywood with live-play performances. He was also an author, a memoirist, a diarist, an analyst of leadership no less. 
So in the midst of the death and destruction of lives, Cuomo landed a $5-million book contract for an adding-insult-to-injury memoir American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic—a book lacking the advice, “Don’t send the infected into the uninfected rooms of elderly rest home patients,” or “How to coax an aide into playing strip poker with you.”
So how does a governor find time to rewrite a memoir in the middle of a plague? (Reader, you interject here to warn me: “Come on man, Cuomo writing a memoir on the job means less people died had he had more time to exercise leadership.”) 
The better quandary is how does a mediocre governor find time to continue years of media-exempt sexual harassments, as a dozen women all seem to appear out of nowhere with “he touched me,” “he propositioned me,” “he embarrassed me” like revelations. At the time of his summer strutting, the media bragged on Cuomo’s appeal to women, boasting that there were now online hashtags, like #cuomosexual and #cuomocrush.
For the deplorables, Cuomo was a callous blowhard, without talent other than mimicking a tough-guy New York patois, delivered to Pajama Boy and Life of Julia know-nothing journalists.
The Great Dr. Fauci Icon HoaxDo we now even recall that octogenarian Anthony Fauci early on in the pandemic swore to us, from his long-held perch at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, that the Wuhan virus posed no real threat. Only the naïve would wear masks that, in truth, were mostly worthless. The World Health Organization was to be listened to, as it assured us that humans were unlikely to pass the virus on from its “bat” origins. Likewise, Fauci himself insisted that the Chinese were doing their very best at being transparent, while rallying global efforts to squelch the wet-market, break-out virus?
A Wuhan level-4 virology origin? Nuts, Fauci all but said. Masks? Ugh, why not wear two, given their sudden life-saving efficacy? 
Herd immunity? Noble lies of 60, 70—or was it 90?—percent herd immunity was needed to stop the virus? The previously infected with COVID-19? There was no evidence of sustained immunity: so line up you previously sick, and get vaxxed asap, even though existing antibodies seemed to react badly with vaccinations. 
Racism? Yep, Fauci attested that racial bias explained the nation’s uneven and poor reaction to the virus (as White House advisor, did he oversee, then, such racism, did he correct it?).
Operation warp speed? Don’t believe Trump: we won’t likely see a vaccination until mid-2021.
Cheap, make-shift protocols that have efficacy in early stages of the virus—whether hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin? All Trump hogwash. Trust instead the pharmaceutical companies to deliver soon a multi-thousand-dollar brand antiviral injection.
How about those rumors of gain-of-function research ties to Fauci’s approval of an EcoHealth Alliance grant to pay Chinese scientists to do what is banned in the US? Lies, lies, and more damnable lies. Dr. Scott Atlas? Just a public health expert, but not a beltway immunologist. 
So how could Atlas be right that focusing on the aged and vulnerable, wearing masks mostly only in crowded indoors as the schools and the economy opened, would in the long run save us from terrible economic damage, thousands of lives lost from delayed procedures, screenings and surgeries, spousal and familial abuse, substance abuse, and the general mayhem and insanity from a year of quarantine, recession, and panic that we now witness? 
How could Atlas be right that a Texas or Florida would eventually have no more deaths per million than a New York or California or New Jersey, but a far more vibrant economic recovery and kids in schools far less damaged?
Fauci-mania was a 14-month, media- and leftwing-generated fantasyland, predicated on his yarn as the scientific truth-teller to the faith-healer Trump. 
The final irony? 
On most of the key issues of the pandemic, Trump’s shoot-from-the-hip, gut instinct was right and Fauci linguistic gymnastics were wrong: the virus likely did come from a leaked gain-of-function experiment in the Wuhan lab. 
Vaccinations would appear in 2020. 
There is probably some value in early use of inexpensive and mostly safe hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin. Incentivizing three or four different private companies would be a superior vaccination route than relying on a state-sponsored EU, Chinese, or Russian 
And following an Atlas on graduated openings proved smarter than the Fauci endless quarantining and mask-wearing.
A modest predication. When this entire tragedy is fully researched, documented, and published, we are going to learn astounding, radically jarring and depressing things. 
And, neither will Dr. Fauci be again Dr. Fauci, the wizard of the White House, nor will the Chinese be our “partners” in sleuthing out the COVID-19 origins.

Health Business/AdministrationBy: Maurice KillemanJune 8, 2021
The term “vaccine hesitancy “ is a derogatory term being used by compulsory vaccination advocates all over the world to stigmatize those who believe they should have the right to decide what is or is not injected into their body, and into the bodies of their children. 
A term that has been picked up and spread like a pandemic in recent years by vaccine profiteers, multinational organizations, and corporations seeking to take away our freedom, while simultaneously increasing their profits, under the guise of protecting the health of the public. 
In a free society, if we don’t have the freedom to decide what is or is not injected into our bodies, then all we have is an illusion of freedom.
Today, as these same advocates of compulsory vaccination censor free speech and stifle debate, they are attempting to mandate emergency use authorization COVID-19 vaccines that:
●  have not been evaluated for long term adverse reactions, 
●  have not been evaluated for carcinogenesis, 
●  have not been evaluated for mutagenesis, 
●  have not been evaluated for long term effects on fertility, 
●  have not been evaluated in pregnancy, 
●  have not been evaluated for mutagenicity, 
while simultaneously telling the world these experimental EUA COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. 
Safety and effectiveness are one thing. Liberty and the freedom to decide what is or is not injected into our bodies is another. 
Choose Freedom! Your body, your choice. 
Don’t let ANYONE take away your freedom under the guise of a public health crisis. Otherwise, your freedom will never be returned. 
Freedom is not something that can be given. Freedom must be taken! 
TAKE YOUR FREEDOM!

THE CATHOLIC MONITOR

“The Scamdemic, Fake News, Indifference to Life, a Fraudulent Election & Censorship; these are Unprecedented Times!”

With everything going on in our world today, many people are feeling very anxious and fearful about the future for many reasons: The scamdemic, fake news, indifference to life, a fraudulent election and censorship; these are unprecedented times! Nevertheless, we must keep the faith and continue to pray. In my opinion Our Most Blessed Lord always answers our prayers. The answers are either yes, no, or wait. This time he told us to wait.  

Many people ask me how is it that I seem to be in peace and not fearful. I tell them the truth and that is when you love and trust in God, continue to go to mass and pray the rosary; you will have peace. The bible says “Perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment. The one who fears has not been perfected in Love,” 1 John 4:18-19. I know that there is no such thing as perfect in this world, except for the love of God! 

So instead of wasting time feeling anxious, do as Padre Pio said “Pray, hope and don’t worry.” Padre Pio used to call his rosary a weapon, which it is. It is a weapon against the demons who try to discourage us and make us feel anxious and fearful. This is a spiritual battle as we have been told many times.  In 1917 our Lady of Fatima asked all Catholics to do five things: Amend our lives – She warned that many souls are going to hell and said: “They (sinners) must amend their lives and ask pardon for their sins. Do not offend the Lord our God any more, for He is already too much offended,”pray the rosary daily, wear the brown scapular, offer sacrifices, devotion to the first 5 Saturday’s of the month, where we offer mass in reparation to the immaculate heart of Mary, pray the rosary and spend at least 15 minutes with her in silent meditation or prayer. Our lady of Fatima warned us that if we didn’t do these things then we would have another world war and much more catastrophes to come. Obviously, not enough people listened to our blessed mother.

 Stop for a moment of silence, ask Jesus Christ what He want you to do now and next. In this silence remember God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost – Three Divine Persons yet One God, has an ordered universe where you can know truth and falsehood as well as never forget that He wants you to have eternal happiness with Him as his son or daughter by grace. Make this a practice. By doing this you are doing more good than reading anything here or anywhere else on the Internet.

Francis Notes:

– Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation:

“[T]he Pope… WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him, or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See.”
(The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)

Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said “the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church.”

– “If Francis is a Heretic, What should Canonically happen to him?”: http://www.thecatholicmonitor.com/2020/12/if-francis-is-heretic-what-should.html

– “Could Francis be a Antipope even though the Majority of Cardinals claim he is Pope?”: http://www.thecatholicmonitor.com/2019/03/could-francis-be-antipope-even-though.html

 –  LifeSiteNews, “Confusion explodes as Pope Francis throws magisterial weight behind communion for adulterers,” December 4, 2017:

The AAS guidelines explicitly allows “sexually active adulterous couples facing ‘complex circumstances’ to ‘access the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.'”

–  On February 2018, in Rorate Caeli, Catholic theologian Dr. John Lamont:

“The AAS statement… establishes that Pope Francis in Amoris Laetitia has affirmed propositions that are heretical in the strict sense.”

– On December 2, 2017, Bishop Rene Gracida:

“Francis’ heterodoxy is now official. He has published his letter to the Argentina bishops in Acta Apostlica Series making those letters magisterial documents.”

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church by the bishops by the grace of God.

Election Fraud is an Issuethat Will Not Go Away

By: Jeff Lukens

American Thinker

June 14, 2021

HAT TIP: RIP MCINTOSH


There are many reasons to doubt the 2020 election results.  No question, strange things were happening on Election Night.  Democrats’ push for universal mail-in balloting made fraud much easier to commit.  There is evidence of massive foreign cyber-interference as well.  The media say there is nothing to see here, but we cannot move on from November 3 until we fully understand what happened.
Voting fraud has been going on for many years and has not been confronted in any meaningful way.  The Democrats’ playbook for a long time has been to steal elections.  This time, it was on a grand scale.  Ironically, had Trump won his second term, election fraud would continue endlessly into the future with little comment.
Arizona is nearing the completion of a full forensic audit, and lawmakers from other states are traveling there to see how it is done.   The issue is reaching critical mass.  Election integrity is finally getting the attention it deserves, and the truth of the 2020 election is going to come out. 
In his report, Peter Navarro provides abundant evidence that the presidential election results resulted from widespread fraud, ballot-stuffing, and other election irregularities.
Navarro claims that the Democrat grand strategy was to dramatically increase absentee and mail-in ballots while dramatically decreasing ballot verification in battleground states.  The goal was to tip the election to Biden with a flood of illegal votes.  Molly Ball confirms this strategy in her infamous TIME Magazine article.
Trump received millions of more votes in 2020 than in 2016, and Republicans swept most congressional and down-ballot offices.  It is simply not believable that Biden won the election honestly.
Trump won bellwether Ohio, which no winning president has failed to carry in that state’s history, by a more considerable margin than he did in 2016.  Pennsylvania was trending the same on Election Night until they mysteriously stopped counting votes late in the evening.   Moreover, Philadelphia blocked access to Republican poll-watchers on Election Day — despite a U.S.  Supreme Court order — to investigate the irregularity.  Similar fraudulent actions occurred in Maricopa County, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Detroit, and Milwaukee.
And then there is the cyber-fraud.  Against all odds, a private citizen, Mike Lindell, is exposing the cyber-election fraud in his friendly Midwestern way.  He has a new social media site that cannot be de-platformed by Big Tech.  He has done his homework on foreign cyber-interference in the election.Yes, Lindell is that guy who was a gambling and crack addict and is now a born-again Christian.  He believes that God will deliver him on his divine appointment.  He is fearless, and there is nothing Joe Scarborough or Rachel Maddow can do to stop him.  The more the big-box stores ban his MyPillow products, the more the deplorables step up their online purchases directly from the company.  The spectacle of Lindell’s approach brings much attention to his message and the scale of the cyber-in the 2020 election. Source: Mike Lindell Presents: Absolutely 9-0.
Lindell estimates that close to 3,000 cyber-attacks occurred from around the world on Nov.  3–4.  He has identified 20 attacks alone where Trump votes were flipped for Biden votes and were enough to change the election outcome.  Notice the timestamp, source, and target I.P. address, and the number of Trump votes flipped to Biden.   This evidence demonstrates irrefutable foreign interference in our election.  The evidence is hard proof that cannot be changed or altered or explained away. Lindell has filed a court case and insists that Biden will be removed from office after a 9-0 Supreme Court decision on his case, but that remains to be seen.
Both Navarro’s ground fraud and Lindell’s cyber-fraud were enough to swing the election independently.  Together, there is overwhelming evidence that the election was stolen.
So now, further evidence is being uncovered ballot by ballot in a laborious forensic audit in Arizona.  The audits will find corroborating documentation to help frame the questions that need to be asked as we go forward with this process.
The 2020 election saw an unusual influx of private funds into local election offices, which then decided to ignore state laws regarding election integrity.  Where are the ballot transfer forms documenting the chain of custody of Fulton County, Georgia, on ballots placed in neighborhood drop boxes?  How were millions of dollars from Facebook used by local election offices, and did it give preference to one candidate over the other?  Why did state officials make a deal with a voting machine contractor that doesn’t allow them to obtain data and computer code on the machines essential for a forensic audit? 
To have confidence in the 2020 election, these questions and more will need to be answered.   Government officials dodging questions makes us question the election even more.  If there is nothing to hide, why are Democrats putting up huge money for criminal defense attorneys for election issues? 
Maricopa County, Arizona is nearing completion of its full forensic audit, and Georgia is about to begin its own.  There are rumblings that Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and other states will soon do the same. 
The U.S.  Senate may look quite different after the audits are complete.  We may find that David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler from Georgia should be seated in the Senate, and Martha McSally from Arizona, and John James from Michigan.
The 2020 election fraud is one of the most egregious crimes in history.  Much detailed preparation went into stealing this election across all states.  It was planned well in advance to be sprung on Election Day to put Biden over the top, and it will soon be fully exposed.
We all know that elections matter.  Well, stolen elections matter even more.  And a groundswell is brewing on the right.  These folks were once called the Silent Majority, but now they’re suddenly not so silent anymore.  When the left invalidated the people’s votes with all their cheating, they also lost the people’s consent to be governed by them.  
People are ticked off and have had it with the lies of the left and are not going to take it anymore.

Anatomy of the Woke Madness


How did such collective madness infect a once pragmatic and commonsensical America?


By: Victor Davis Hanson

June 13, 2021

(emphasis added)

HAT TIP: RIP MCINSTOSH


Wokeism has become our most popular secular religion—at least for a moment dethroning climate change. It reduces all of the past and present into puerile binaries between “whites” and “non-whites.
Its aim is for the present generation to rewrite our history—whether by The 1619 Project and cancel culture or iconoclastic statue-toppling and Trotskyization of names and places. Wokeism becomes a child’s morality tale of noble non-white victims versus villainous white victimizers. Erasing the past and its language supposedly fuels a recalibration of the future, all in the here and now, a holy Year ZeroIn the process, wokeism has done a lot of damage to America and will do even more if left unchecked. Here are its chief characteristics.
Elites vs. ElitesFirst, remember that wokeism is a top-down phenomenon. It started in academia with “critical race theory” and “critical legal theory.” 
These are bastard offshoots of harebrained “critical theory,” which arose from a demoralized and adrift Europe after the cataclysms of two devastating European-spawned world wars.
These “theories” are merely adolescent delusions that norms, customs, traditions, laws, and rules are just arbitrary “constructs.” Thus they should have no authority over those whom they “oppress.”These relativist props are the tools of the white male hierarchy to gain and consolidate their “power.” So they can only be resisted by rejecting all these insidious “norms,” whether the canons of physics and math, jurisprudence, standardized test scores, or the idea that police keep the “peace.
Outside of the campus, the media, the entertainment industry, the corporate boardroom, Wall Street, and Silicon Valley, thousands of rank-and-file social justice warrior demonstrators are not demanding, for example, to enroll women in Special Forces combat units. 
Grassroots America does not insist on subsidized transgendered surgeries.
Instead, leftist Washington politicos and bureaucrats pressure the Pentagon brass, in quid pro quo fashion. The subtext is that those who promote woke policies are assured of promotion and future exemption from audit of lucrative retirement consulting for defense-related corporations.
The people⁠—that is, 51 percent of America—are not organizing for more cancel-culture censorship on Facebook, or even greater percentages of college admissions determined largely by race. Inner-city residents are not clamoring for less police patrolling.Defunding law enforcement is an elite obsession of those who do not live in insecure places.
Whether in the corporate boardroom or in Hollywood casting meetings or in the campus president’s office, race-based obsessions mostly reflect intramural wars between elites for the lucrative spoils of the one-percent’s news anchorships, roles in TV shows and commercials, diversity deanships, and admissions quotas to the Ivy League.
As a result, class considerations have vanished. They are replaced by absurd racial reductionism. For example, by virtue of his race-mongering, CNN mediocrity Don Lemon can pose as a multimillionaire victim. The anonymous white deplorables at Walmart, caricatured as smelly in the Lisa Page-Peter Strozk text trove, are his proverbial anonymous oppressors.
Apparently, we can only prevent the tragedy of thousands of young black males killing each other and hundreds of innocent bystanders each year in our major cities—if Oprah, at her $90 million estate, conducts a series of TV interviews with Meghan Markle (denizen of a $15 million mansion) about the psychodramatic slights she feels she received from the Royal Family, or if Black Lives Matter founder and Marxist Patrisse Marie Khan-Cullors Brignac gets her $35,000 new fence around her new Topanga Canyon home, in an era when “walls don’t work.”
The elite Woke are now obsessed with race because of leftist failures in the past to galvanize a permanent class of victims of the grasping rich—given the upward mobility and expanding economy of the United States.
Race, in contrast, is deemed immutable. The Left sees it as permanent proof, a stamp of victimization, and thus deserving of reparatory government action. LeBron James may be worth $1 billion, but he will always be a needy voice of the helpless given his race. Or so the woke would have us believe.
Performance Virtue SignalingSecond, given its elite origins and spread, it is no surprise that wokeism is a psychological mechanism that exempts the privileged by virtue signaling and performance grievance-mongering in lieu of meaningful real action. Wokeism is neither consistent nor logical. Its self-serving selectivity means Hunter Biden’s serial use of the N-word is not inconsistent with his father’s lectures that the deplorables pose an existential racist threat to the nation.
America’s inner cities are unsafe, violent, often dangerously unclean, and characterized by terrible schools, plagued by terrible municipal administration, and suffering terrible housing. Yet wokeism never holds the mayors, the district attorneys, or the city councils of these urban failures accountable for the misery they inflict on the non-white and poor.
When a shrill Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) produces a selfie video about the planet burning up in 12 years or claims “racism” explains efforts to ensure that immigrants come in legal fashion, she believes that she is then exempt both from doing anything concrete about urban crises, and from any guilt about living a privileged lifestyle.
Kicking “racist” Donald Trump off social media apparently means Mark Zuckerberg does not feel too bad about building a monstrous 57,0000-square foot mansion on a pristine Hawaiian island site. The social justice warrior and Facebook billionaire might as well have been a 15th-century Florentine Catholic sinner, ponying up 1,000 golden florins to gift a few blocks on the rising Duomo to ensure he could indulge himself on his $12,000 electric surfboard, and that his future stay in Purgatory would be short, and in Paradise long.
Before being pre-COVID-19 woke, Colin Kaepernick of mixed racial ancestry was a so-so multimillionaire NFL quarterback. He was known mostly for being suspended for using a racial N-word slur. Kaepernick was raised by white parents and apparently worried whether he was authentically one of the oppressed.
But after joining the church of wokeism, he became an approved voice of the victimized. And so he began lodging collective grievances against the supposed sins of America while building a fortune hawking Chinese-approved products.
So wokeism is so often an empty indulgence for the elite that enjoys exemptions it never extends to others.
When Individuals DisappearThird, Wokeism destroys individualism. We cease being persons and instead become categorized peoples. What does it matter that Al Sharpton was a racist demagogue, that Jesse Jackson a skilled shakedown artist of corporate America, that Bayard Rustin, in contrast, a brilliant civil rights strategist, or that Martin Luther King, Jr. was an ecumenical believer in the inherent goodness of a flawed America of his times—once they are all to be reduced to being just black, and therefore just equally victims?
In the same manner, did Robert Kennedy, Lester Maddox, Hubert Humphrey, and Bull Connor equally suffer from “whiteness”
Wokeism, then, is nonstop tribal warfare that reduces everyone on one side into uniform victims, despite their naturally varying morality, and on the other into cookie-cutter victimizers, although some were and most were not.
Racist obsession strangles individual character and renders everything irrelevant in comparison. Are we now to stop watching “Saving Private Ryan” because most of those who died on Normandy Beach were white? Thus what does it matter that some soldiers were braver than others? And what did it matter in a larger sense that a mostly white majority America defeated an all-white Nazi Germany? Were Churchill and Roosevelt, and Stalin and Hitler, just a bunch of old white people, given it was irrelevant that the former were democratic leaders who saved Western civilization and the latter were mass murderers?
Racism Everywhere—and Thus NowhereFourth, race is not unimportant, but it is not the only catalyst of history or arbiter of life in the present. Cancer couldn’t care less about the race of the cells it warps. COVID-19 is not a white or black pandemic, for all the efforts to make it so. Google “racism” and learn that everything from gluten allergies to robots are now products of racism.
Segregation of the U.S. military was a travesty during World War II and had grave implications of abject hypocrisy for democracy at war, but it was still not the central issue that explained the global conflict, at least not in comparison to the 6 million dead of the Holocaust, or the 20 million killed on the Eastern Front, or the 15 million whom Japan butchered in China. To the extent racism drove the death count of World War II, by the numbers it was mostly a matter of the Japanese intersectionally slaughtering supposedly inferior Asian Chinese and Germans exterminating white, supposedly non-“Aryan” Jews and Russian “Untermenschen.”
Pericles’ Funeral Oration, the Magna Carta, and the Declaration of Independence can be appreciated apart from race and gender. In contrast, wokeism takes every event of the past and present and warps it into a racial litmus test, and thus a banality of oppressor and oppressed, as if history is always third-grade melodrama rather than complex tragedy.
Merit is RacistFifth,wokeism’s existential enemy is merit. Critical Race Theory claims that meritocratic criteria are rigged or “constructed” in subtle ways to reflect the dominant hegemonies of the white male heterosexual hierarchy. Thus physics has no innate laws across time and space. There are no race-neutral skills or lack of the same in a United Airlines pilot.
We know the wages of such woke relativism. Indeed, we have seen the pernicious effects when sex or religion or race or ideology in the past has been used to calibrate talent in lieu of merit, whose measurement can transcend how we look or in what faith we believe.
Wokeism dictates that if the “oppressed” are “underrepresented,” it is because of society’s rigged rules of exploitation. So the woke’s remedies trump considerations of quality and excellence. Yet we know what happened when ideologues in 1930s Germany purged university departments when commissars overruled Soviet officers in World War II, when Jim-Crow white racists found ways to ensure talented blacks could not go to college, or when brilliant female law graduates were offered only secretarial work in prestigious law firms: Society at large suffered from unscientific, crackpot -isms that knowingly warred on talent for purposes of political control.
The ancient American idea is now dead that if a group was collectively underrepresented in particular fields and professions, the remedy was simply twofold: organize to ensure equality of opportunity, and then when a fair shot was guaranteed, prepare, study, and sacrifice to ensure quantifiable excellence to capitalize on the opportunity. All that to the woke is now “racism.”
The final irony of wokeism? Its efforts to intrude on private livescome right out of the pages of 1984 and Animal Farm. Its racism is a more sophisticated form of Confederate one-drop racial lunacy. Its methodology operates according to the rules of the Spanish Inquisition. And its cancel culture mimics the system of Soviet commissars.
How did such collective madness infect a once pragmatic and commonsensical America?
Nascent wokeism went viral during the terror of COVID-19, our first global pandemic in a century, the first-ever national quarantine, the first-ever self-induced recession, the most destructive riots in U.S. history after the death of George Floyd, and the first-ever election where well over 60 percent did not vote on election day. And the country went stark-raving mad in response.
As the virus fades, the lockdown becomes porous, pent-up demand fuels an economic recovery, the absence of law enforcement becomes far more deadly than its omnipresence, violent crime spikes and seeps into the suburbs, and the people resist the Left’s unconstitutional hijacking of state protocols of voting, then what happens?
Do we revert to the norms of the civil rights movement where the content of our character alone matters, not the color of our skin?
Or have we sunk so deeply into the woke quicksands, that we cannot thrash our way up to the air, and thus suffocate from the ancient pressures of the bog that have always destroyed civilizations?

Dear Patriots:                                                                
It is all too easy to run across”bad news” especially if you rely upon The Left’s Drive By Media.  

We will give you The Good News to take you into a summer weekend.Whether it be on the election fraud/audit front, or the Covid-CCP lies, or just in general, there is plenty of Good News to be found.

It is important to share this as the Left wishes to make you feel isolated and hopeless, which is why these stories do not get much attention in the Drive By Media. Here are some quick hits with links provided if you need to read more.
Election Audits1. Many more states are sending delegations to Arizona to observe how they are proceeding with the audit in Maricopa County. All have come away impressed. It is anticipated that more states will do similar audits of the 2020 election. Nine more states are sending delegations this week. https://theconservativetreehouse.com/blog/2021/06/08/state-reps-from-wisconsin-alaska-georgia-and-virginia-traveling-to-arizona-to-review-forensic-ballot-audit-process/2.

Why are the Francis Catholic Media & Francis Protecting Sex Abusers? 

– “What we see here is the Vatican again trying to suppress even modest progress by the U.S. bishops,” she told reporters outside the conference, where her group is holding several events, including a press event where it called for all U.S. bishops to resign en masse. “We’re seeing where the problem lies, which is with the [Francis] Vatican.” – Liberal Anne Barrett Doyle

 – When I was an ignorant, foolish, and very emotionally immature Novus Ordo American seminarian of 21 years I was seduced by a high ranking member of the clergy in the Eternal City. This admission comes with a lot of shame because on one hand I fully acknowledge that I was a grown-ass man when this happened to me, objectively capable of resisting the seduction of this influential man; however, with time, I have realized that inside I was just a boy and that I was victimized, preyed upon, and exploited precisely because of my immaturity. Yes, I will admit that I was a “vulnerable adult” however stupid that term may sound to a person. And so, I realize both that I am a victim but I also am complicit in this ecclesiastical crime.He must have been a serial offender because he recognized my need for fatherly affection and attention and began grooming me as soon as we had met…

… It was during this time of complete brokenness that I encountered the Traditional Latin Mass for the first time, not even knowing what I was encountering, without any coercion or argumentation or explanation, but just The Mass of the Ages in its simple, confident, modest, glorious, and pristine beauty. It pierced my very wounded and broken heart. It was precisely because of my wounded heart and my complete exhaustion with the Novus Ordo church hierarchy that I was able to listen with “the ear of my heart” to the voice of the LORD in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. I found it odd and compelling. I found it curious and confounding. Every day for two weeks I would attend this Traditional Latin Mass that the monastery offered and it was there that I encountered the Living and True GOD but there were still so many questions that were left unanswered on every conceivable level…

I arrived back in the USA and waited a year and told an influential priest that I knew back in my home diocese about the incident that happened to me in Rome. He communicated what I had told him to the bishop of the diocese at the time. We jointly composed a letter to send to the Patriarch of the Eastern Rite Church that had jurisdiction over this cleric in Rome. Nothing was ever done. No response. I don’t know exactly what that awful man is up to now but nothing changed for years and I have reason to believe that nothing has changed even now. – Ex-seminarian’s letter to Ann Barnhardt [A Reader’s Testimony: The Most Common Story in Rome – How Vatican Prelates Hunt Seminarians]

It appears that Francis Catholic media such as Where Peter Is is part of Francis’s power play to protect gay sex abusers:

“[B]laming gay men for this abuse crisis is simply scapegoating. The problem isn’t gay men… The problem, as Pope Francis rightly stated, is ‘the abuse of power’ and ‘clericalism.'”
(Where Peter Is, “The Gay Scapegoat, an Exercise in Unjust Discrimination,” August 22, 2018)

On 12, 2018, the liberal Daily Beast headline said it best:

Pope Francis Just Pulled a Power Play on American Bishops at Crucial Conference”

Even the liberal Anne Barrett Doyle, the co-director of the left-leaning Bishops Accountability victims group, said the Vatican’s power play was “truly incredible”: 

“What we see here is the Vatican again trying to suppress even modest progress by the U.S. bishops,” she told reporters outside the conference, where her group is holding several events, including a press event where it called for all U.S. bishops to resign en masse. “We’re seeing where the problem lies, which is with the Vatican.”
[https://www.thedailybeast.com/pope-francis-just-pulled-a-power-play-on-american-bishops-at-crucial-conference]

The gay activist Michael Sean Winters writing for the dissenting Francis National Catholic Reporter explained that the Francis’s power play was about protecting the gay sex abusers from “procedures and policies which might help police the crime of sex abuse” and not to “blame the gays” for their sex abuse:

“The pope doesn’t talk in his sleep and they don’t let us listen at the door if he did. But, the obvious place to start finding an answer came in the address delivered by Archbishop Christophe Pierre [who is speaking for Pope Francis], the apostolic nuncio, immediately following the announcement…”

‘… The U.S. bishops’ conference proposals were too narrowly focused on procedures and policies which might help police the crime of sex abuse but they did not get to the root of the problem, the clerical culture that led bishops to think more about their own reputations than about the welfare of children exposed to sexual predators.”

As I noted this morning, there are two meta-narratives competing to become the overarching frame for the bishops’ response to the sex abuse mess, the “blame the gays” narrative we saw at First Things and on EWTN in recent weeks, or the clerical culture narrative. Pierre clearly applied the latter:”

 ‘We cry for the injustices perpetrated upon victims of abuse. We vow to fight a clerical culture that tolerates the abuse of authority. When abuse occurs, it is our sin and we must take it as such. These are not the sins of the media or the products of vast conspiracies. These are things we must recognize and fix. Our Holy Father has said it must end, and it must — not simply because he has said it, but because each of us in our hearts know that this is the only right thing to do.’

“He did not ‘blame the gays.’ He did not suggest that a failure to clearly articulate the church’s sexual ethics was the problem. He did not echo the complaints and concerns, still less the technocratic and puritanical solutions, discussed at the conference on “Authentic Reform,” that my colleague Heidi Schlumpf reported onThe problem is “a clerical culture that tolerates the abuse of authority. Punto.”
[https://www.ncronline.org/news/opinion/distinctly-catholic/bishops-meeting-bombshell-vatican-says-no-voting-abuse-crisis]

Francis’s power play in calling homosexual sexual abuse “clericalism” or even pedophilia is a lie unless he is accusing himself of clericalism or pointing his finger at himself.

There has been clericalism in the Church since St. Paul rebuked St. Peter for a type of clericalism, but never has the Church experienced a crisis of the gravity of the present largely gay sex abuse scandal which is being represented as a pedophile crisis.

Attorney and international child rights advocate Liz Yore refuted this misrepresentation of the scandal with facts:

“Largely it’s not a pedophile crisis,” Yore said. “We know from the John Jay report, 81-percent of the victims were males, mostly teens. And we know because our subclass of predators are all male, this is a male-on-male crime, and primarily with teens between the ages of 14 to 17. Those are the victims.”

“The grand jury report also highlighted that,” she said. “Seminarians who are over the age of consent, that they too were victims, nevertheless, they’re crimes, all of them, some federal crimes, some state crimes.”
{https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.lifesitenews.com/mobile/news/sex-abuse-crisis-in-us-catholic-church-is-about-homosexuality-not-pedophili#ampshare=https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/sex-abuse-crisis-in-us-catholic-church-is-about-homosexuality-not-pedophili]

Yore clearly showed that it is not a pedophile crisis, but a homosexual sexual abuse crisis.

But even if is it was a pedophile crisis, Francis’s power play in calling the so-called pedophile scandal “clericalism” is a lie except in the sense that Francis is using the full clerical power of the papacy to protect homosexual pedophile sex abusers.

The clericalism finger is pointing directly at Francis.

In this sense, clericalism is the problem because Francis is abusing his clerical authority to protect gay sex abusers. So if he is going call the sex abuse crisis clericalism then the finger points mainly to Francis and his gay sex abuse protecting inner circle.

That Francis and his appointed Vatican consultant Fr. James Martin are building a bridge to hell using this abuse of clerical authority can clearly be seen when you substitute the word pedophile for gay or LGBT and other gay activist language as quoted from Martin’s WMOF speech in the Catholic Herald:

– Headline: “Fr. James Martin critiques [‘pedophilephobic’] pastors at WMOF”

– “‘[W]elcome [pedophile] persons’… into parish life.”

– “Don’t reduce [pedophile] people to the call to chastity.”

-“The priest said those with [‘pedophilephobic’] pastors, ‘either silently or overtly,’ are ‘out of luck.'”

-“[L]isten to [pedophile] parishioners;. ‘trust that the Holy Spirit will guide them’… rather than ‘simply repeating Church teachings without considering their [pedophile] lived experience.”
(Catholic Herald, August 23, 2017)

Don’t forget Church Militant’s September 20, 2017 headline where we substitute pedophile for homosexual:

– “Father Martin: [Pedophiles] not Bound to Chastity”

The point is there is no reason under the sun not to justify pedophile behavior if one uses Martin and Francis language in justifying gay behavior in the Church.

There is no reason not to justify pedophile crimes using Francis/Martin-speak when one substitutes pedophile for gay:

– “Who am I to judge” [pedophiles].

– “God made you like this” [pedophiles].

– That is the “lived experience” of [pedophiles].

– [Pedophile] “discrimination… should be avoided.”

Here is one that even conservative Catholics were using in the earlier part of the McCarrick scandal:

“It is consensual” so it’s not that big a deal and can be taken care of in the confessional.

What Fr. Z said of Martin applies to the Francis Catholic media and in the long run to the pedophilia and gay sex abuse cover ups of the Francis Vatican:

“[T]his is part of a larger, concerted effort to normalize sodomy, which is a sin that ‘cries to heaven’… Martin’s talk is a nightmare of manipulation and misdirection… they use ‘lived experience’ to justify whatever the hell they want.”
(Fr.Z’s Blog, “@JamesMartinSJ talk at #WMOF18,” August 23, 2018)

The Francis/Martin language “is a nightmare of manipulation and misdirection” that is a bridge to hell.

Stop for a moment of silence, ask Jesus Christ what He want you to do now and next. In this silence remember God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost – Three Divine Persons yet One God, has an ordered universe where you can know truth and falsehood as well as never forget that He wants you to have eternal happiness with Him as his son or daughter by grace. Make this a practice. By doing this you are doing more good than reading anything here or anywhere else on the Internet.

Francis Notes:

– Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation:

“[T]he Pope… WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him, or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See.”
(The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)

Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said “the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church.”
[https://archive.org/stream/SilveiraImplicationsOfNewMissaeAndHereticPopes/Silveira%20Implications%20of%20New%20Missae%20and%20Heretic%20Popes_djvu.txt]

– “If Francis is a Heretic, What should Canonically happen to him?”: http://www.thecatholicmonitor.com/2020/12/if-francis-is-heretic-what-should.html

– “Could Francis be a Antipope even though the Majority of Cardinals claim he is Pope?”: http://www.thecatholicmonitor.com/2019/03/could-francis-be-antipope-even-though.html

 –  LifeSiteNews, “Confusion explodes as Pope Francis throws magisterial weight behind communion for adulterers,” December 4, 2017:

The AAS guidelines explicitly allows “sexually active adulterous couples facing ‘complex circumstances’ to ‘access the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.'”

–  On February 2018, in Rorate Caeli, Catholic theologian Dr. John Lamont:

“The AAS statement… establishes that Pope Francis in Amoris Laetitia has affirmed propositions that are heretical in the strict sense.”

– On December 2, 2017, Bishop Rene Gracida:

“Francis’ heterodoxy is now official. He has published his letter to the Argentina bishops in Acta Apostlica Series making those letters magisterial documents.”

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church by the bishops by the grace of God.

 If the specifics do not fit the broader narrative the media is pushing, then the specifics must be hidden or overlooked  because they do not want their narratives to be reframed in a way THEY would not approve of !!!!!!!!!!!

Schrödinger’s Cat

By: Judd Garrett

Objectivity is the Objective

June 13, 2021

(emphasis added)

Hat Tip: Rip McIntosh


In the thought experiment, Schrödinger’s Cat, a hypothetical cat is in a closed box with radioactive material that may or may not have killed it. Until the box is opened, our minds consider the cat both alive and dead simultaneously, creating a separate reality from the actual reality. But, when we open the box, we see the cat is either alive or dead, ending that state of not knowing because the actual reality has been revealed. 
On Friday night in Austin, Texas, a man fired a stream of gunshots in a popular entertainment district in the city, injuring 13 people, 2 critically. On Saturday, the local newspaper, The Austin-American Statesman, reported the tragic incident, but omitted the description the police gave of the shooter from surveillance video. The newspaper believed revealing the shooter’s race “would be harmful in perpetuating stereotypes” so they purposely left the public in the state of not knowing, creating a separate reality like in Schrödinger’s Cat
Many people, and the media, in particular, construct the reality of an incident and determine their level of outrage based solely on the race of the people involved. So, the media will not disclose the race if they do not like the reality it would purport. They prefer the alternative reality created from not knowing.
The police still have not released the name or race of the police officer who shot and killed Ashlii Babbit on January 6, 2021. Why has that information not been disclosed to the public? We know within hours the identity of a police officer who shoots a black person. LeBron James infamously tweeted a picture of police officer Nicholas Reardon with the caption “You’re next”, the same day he shot and killed Ma’Khia Bryant as she was stabbing another girl. But when an unarmed white woman, a 14-year Navy veteran is shot by a police officer, no information is released. Why? Because they are creating a Schrödinger’s Cat reality. As long as the public doesn’t know the details, the specific narratives cannot be written or dispelled.
What if the police officer who killed Ashlii Babbit was a person of color? Would that carry a different significance and write a different narrative than if he was white? Would that flip the script on the entire police shooting narrative that the media has been force feeding the public for years? Maybe the reality is that when police officers of all races are threatened, even by an unarmed woman, they discharge their weapon. Maybe that’s why they are not disclosing officer’s identity. If the specifics do not fit the broader narrative they are pushing, then the specifics must be hidden or overlooked because they do not want their narratives to be reframed. 
We saw this in the Capital car attack that killed police officer, William Evans, on April 2, 2021. The media was instantly enraged because the attacker was thought to be a white Trump supporting insurrectionist, until he wasn’t, until it was discovered the killer was Noah Green, a black, anti-white, Louis Farrakhan devotee, and the story quickly disappear from the national consciousness. No broader narrative was explored. 
Likewise, on March 23, a man shot and killed 10 people in a Boulder, Colorado grocery store. Outrage burned through social media immediately because the shooter was initially assumed to be white, and therefore the narrative of pervasive white supremacy threats could be promulgated. But when it was determined that the shooter was Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, a Muslim immigrant, the outrage about these 10 murders dropped off the front page into oblivion.
This is the end result of hate crimes legislation. When our legal system uses the race of the assailant and the race of the victim to determine the severity of the crime and the subsequent punishment, a multi-tiered criminal justice system is created, one that discriminates against some and prefers others based solely on their skin color. And the media has adopted this way of looking at crime by allowing race to determine the story theywrite. 
All assailants should be treated the same because all victims received the same fate. The shooting in Austin does not have two possible distinct realities with different levels of tragedy depending on the race of the shooter which get blurred if the race is not disclose bythe media.
There is one tragic reality of that shooting, 13 people were injured, 2 critically, and that reality does not become less or more tragic when we find out the race of the shooter. Incidents like these should be viewed as individual occurrences with their own unique and complex causes, and therefore meanings. 
These tragedies are not indicative of a larger narrative about race in this country that too many people want to attach to them. In a country of 350+ million people, the action of one person, or the actions of a handful of people, are not telling of anything about a specific group, or even about the population at large, other than there are 350 million other people who didn’t commit a mass shooting. 
These incidents are far more isolated and random than the media wants to characterize them as because they want to be able to continue to use them to push their broader agendas
If we only see the world through the lens of race, we will get a distorted picture of reality, causing us to promote dangerous and harmful narratives that only further divide us. But if we can look at tragic incidents like these, and see the common humanity in all of us, they can be used as touchstones to unite us.

The Thorny Issue Of Gay Pride
June 14, 2021
Catholic League president Bill Donohue raises some issues with respect to Gay Pride Month:
To many Americans, gay pride month is about giving due recognition to lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender persons and queers (LGBTQ). These are Americans who have been marginalized because of their status and are seeking an end to it. To be sure, there is near unanimity that bullying of any kind is unacceptable and that unjust discrimination should not be tolerated. Beyond that, the issue gets thorny, though there is a reluctance on the part of elites to admit it.
Today more than ever before, gay activists have succeeded in gaining the support of a large swath of government officials, and an even bigger slice of corporate America. It does not exaggerate to say that these key decision-makers see no reason to tap the brakes on any issue of importance to the LGBTQ community. To that extent, the gay rights movement has been a stunning success.
The Biden administration is leading the way, offering full-throated support to gay pride month. For example, the U.S. Embassy to the Vatican is flying a gay rainbow flag, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is front and center celebrating the “beauty, bravery and vibrancy” of this movement.
Similarly, corporate America has signed on to gay pride month in a way that is startling. The biggest banks, department stores, airlines, professional sports teams, liquor and beer companies, hotel chains, TV networks, newspapers, tech companies, and pharmaceutical houses are all on board without reservation. There’s the rub—without reservation.
It is one thing to recognize the equal dignity of all Americans—this is a staple of Catholic teachings—independent of their sexual orientation; it is quite another to endorse everything associated with the gay pride agenda.For example, why is it necessary for those elites who want to show respect for LGBTQ people to remain silent about the child abuse that is taking place in the name of gay pride? To be specific, anyone who sanctions sex transitioning for minors is promoting child abuse, whether it is intentional or not. Most teens who express a desire to transition will change their mind if given time. Moreover, hormone blockers are irreversible and the next step is sex reassignment surgery. From what we know, the results, in terms of wellbeing, are not auspicious.
Another issue that must be addressed is a close look at who the founders of the gay rights movement were and what they stood for. Their profile is not inspiring.
Harry Hay is regarded by many as the founder of the gay rights movement. He not only endorsed adults having sex with minors, he said the young men would love it. “If the parents and friends of gays are truly friends of gays,” he said, “they would know from their gay kids that the relationship with an older man is precisely what thirteen, fourteen, and fifteen-year-old kids need more than anything else in the world.” He was also a supporter of NAMBLA, the gay pedophile group.
Brenda Howard is responsible for the first gay pride march held in 1970. Known as the “Mother of Pride,” the bisexual was a devotee of sadomasochism, bondage and polyamorous relationships. Gilbert Baker created the rainbow flag. He was an anti-Catholic bigot drag queen who went by the name “Busty Ross,” a play on Betsy Ross.
Allen Ginsburg is known as among the first intellectuals associated with the modern gay rights movement. He was a strong defender of NAMBLA, the organization committed to normalizing child molestation. Larry Kramer founded ACT-UP, some of whose members crashed St. Patrick’s Cathedral during a Sunday Mass and spat the Eucharist on the floor; he was also a NAMBLA advocate. Harvey Milk, the famous San Francisco activist and politician, was heralded by President Obama. According to the gay author Randy Shilts, who wrote a book about him, Milk also had sex with minors.
Last year, statues of iconic Americans were destroyed by urban anarchists. Every effort was made to eradicate historic figures from American history texts, and annual celebrations in their name came under fierce attack. The elites, almost without exception, stood by and watched; some applauded.
If these Americans are worthy of being scrubbed from our history, why should those who founded the gay rights movement not be excised as well?
Make no mistake about it, the Catholic League is opposed to censoring American history, regardless of the profile of those who shaped it. Ditto for those who crafted the gay pride movement. Even seriously flawed persons are capable of making notable public achievements. And judging those who lived long ago by today’s standards smacks of ethnocentrism.
The duplicity, though, is repugnant. Why is it okay to trash Harry Truman but not Harry Hay? Those who launched the cancel culture—they are all on the left—cannot now claim that what they started should stop at their doorstep. If they want to recognize flawed gay leaders, let them recognize flawed American heroes. 
The best path forward is to cancel the cancel culture and stop with selective moral indignation.
