"Wherefore We must interrupt a silence which it would be criminal to prolong, that We may point out...as they really are, men who are badly disguised." Pope St. Pius X, September 8, 1907, Pascendi Dominici Gregis

Ryancare Failure Is Trump Movement Success

Per usual, Alex Jones does an excellent job of summarizing. Not only do we avoid the time-delayed death-spiral of Obamacare-light, but the conservative core in the House and Senator Rand Paul clearly flexed their political muscles. From now own, the real conservatives will have a seat at the legislative table. Trump should feel emboldened, Ryan brought low.

This almost feels like another Trump troll. Ok Democrats you're going to make it impossible to go with a middle of the road solution? Now that the American people are tired of political delay tactics, we'll just go ahead and pass a real market-based healthcare bill after Obamacare fully implodes.

Gorsuch feels the same to us. Ok, Chuck Schumer, you're going to filibuster Gorsuch? Alright, once he withdraws, and the American people see clearly the obstructionist letch of the democrats, we'll go ahead and nominate a far-right conservative like Napolitano. How bout that sounds?

Modern Woman Must Be Converted Not Celebrated

Why do feminists support Islam? Both are the disordered use of power.

Dr. David Allen White explains the former...


In a time of universal feminism, being a man is a revolutionary act. Of course, we all know who really wears the pants.

An Upstart, Outsider Businessman Risks Everything To Take On the Globalists - $1,000,000,000.00

Defeating Hillary Clinton and Restoring the American Dream.

Priceless.

There are somethings money can't buy. But if you just need to buy something, there's always the mainstream media.

And as any real economist knows, dollar signs are not the exclusive means of measuring wealth. There is no way Donald Trump could purchase the opinion I have of him today.

God Is Trying America

Do you want to know why Russia is seen as the enemy du jour by the satanic elites that run Europe and satellite countries like Australia and Canada and are trying to recapture the United States from Trump? The truth is Russia has been predestined by God to be both the source of the materialist machinations of these satanic elites through the rise of Communism and then ultimately the undoing of the same Freemasonic Communistic Feminist Homosexual Islam-supporting (and you thought they were just "liberals") elite that will coincide with Russia's conversion to Catholicism.

Why Russia? Perhaps because it was among the first of the Catholic countries to split away from the Western Church in the Great Schism? In parallel, they would also undergo this great spiritual chastisement first and emerge first into the true faith. Perhaps the political-social order is arranged in such a way that Russia is the only effective instrument God could find?

Or, to keep things simple, perhaps it's just because God said so. After all, He's God. "Let there be light. And there was light."

God has already decided what will happen to Europe and Russia. He is now placing the United States into the balance to be weighed. The United States has been given a chance with Donald Trump to begin our conversion as a nation. We can accept it, or we can reject it. Whichever we do will determine our fate in God's plan.

The Russian elite is corrupt, there is no question. They do not practice the true faith of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and they do not have a political system founded upon it. God has plans to take care of that. The Russian elite in the aftermath of the fall of Communism does seem to be insular and is not the same as the free-masonic satanists in the West. Russia is outside of their control. God wills it.

The United States was not founded a Catholic country. Demographically, it could've become one around the time of Roe vs. Wade and if the American Catholics hadn't been so susceptible to the changes in the 1960s both in the Church and in American culture. It may yet become one given continuation in certain demographic trends. It almost looks like God keeps trying to convert our country. Oh wait, He is, and every other country besides.

What America did correctly, though, was establish a governmental system that was in the entire age of the nation-state, with the possible exception of Switzerland, the most thoroughly based on the natural law tradition. "Conceived in liberty," as Murray Rothbard put it. We will leave the ante-Westphalian world out of our analysis for now. We will also leave an analysis of the true definition of 'liberty' for another article.

The American system far better than others, and until nearly the same time as the Bolshevik revolution, upheld a governmental system that did not violate its people's natural right to property. While we have pointed out the moral order is greater than just the libertarian assertion of the non-aggression principle, Catholics and many others often do not appreciate just how important property rights are to enduring Christian [that is to say Catholic] freedom. It is in fact only through a highly-centralized system that Satanists can find the power to impose their will on all of humanity. Conversely, the Church reached Her height of influence during the highly-decentralized pre-Westphalian political order.

We have argued elsewhere that this dichotomy will eventually be resolved.

The American system, therefore, founded in many ways upon the same principles as those illustrated by the Spanish Scholastics and their heirs the Austrian economists is, in this way at least, by no means one entirely at odds with the Catholic world order. If we trust - fully - in God again we will not undergo the full extent of the chastisement that will befall the world that has given itself over to Satan.
But my people heard not my voice: and Israel hearkened not to me. So I let them go according to the desires of their heart: they shall walk in their own inventions. If my people had heard me: if Israel had walked in my ways: I should soon have humbled their enemies, and laid my hand on them that troubled them. 

And my people, upon whom my name is called, being converted, shall make supplication to me, and seek out my face, and do penance for their most wicked ways: then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins and will heal their land.
Trump is the test.


Flash Review: Trump Louisville Rally

THIS BLOG IS BEING UPDATED IN REALTIME.

PACKED VENUE THROUGHOUT - MULTIPLE CAMERA PANS REVEAL

Taunts dying media companies with 'There is no path to 270' line. "Well, there was a path to 306, but maybe not to 270."

President Trump points out we have inherited a mess.

Mention of North Korea gets boos from audience.

Says the financial system is stacked against the American people. But this will change. 'We are fighting on the side of our great American heritage.'

Trump points out that he will keep all of his promises, but because of the fierce opposition it will take time. Points out the tremendous progress already made.

We can have free trade, only if it is free on both sides. Touts again his Jacksonian credentials. Mentions Henry Clay as inspiration for tariffs.

Trump praised Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, and insisted that the first step in the Healthcare legislation process is to REPEAL. Replacement comes after repeal. And Trump is open to alternatives for the replacement. And Rand is a really good guy. Wink wink. (Notably, the same is NOT said about Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky who is present in the audience and is Senate majority leader.)

Everything is negotiable. Ryan's bill may be just a start and a slight improvement over Obamacare. That doesn't mean we can't make healthcare even more market based down the road.

Trump says we have souls. And we all made by the same Almighty God. "Nobody can beat us."

Holy Conspiracy

Yes, Mr. President, we did inherit a mess.

We are everywhere. You cannot hide from us. If you remove any one of us, say Alex Jones for example, a million more the same will arise in the daisy-field of decency. You cannot defeat us, satanists. You are already defeated, and you know it. That which thou dost, do quickly.

We know what you have done. We are coming for you. Your institutions will be infiltrated and converted. We can actually carry out what the materialists have always claimed they could carry out but cannot. You may bury our bodies. We will bury your souls.

Contra Stefan Molyneux: Jesus is God

I admire Stefan Molyneux tremendously. His intellectual presence of mind in his videos is one I can only strive to emulate. Obviously, Stefan has faith that his reason can lead him to the truth. Strangely though, I'm not sure he realizes the full implication of this prerequisite nature of faith to truth.

In this video Stefan makes some astounding claims against faith in Jesus. I present the counter-arguments below, starting with my comment on his YouTube video.

Stefan is completely wrong on this particular point: Our Lord indeed desired His own death. This is clear from the text of the Bible, as well as ipso facto because He let it happen. The idea that God demanded His sacrifice to atone for the sins of mankind is simply the epitome of the metaphysical truth that all excellence, all virtue requires effort and a particular form of self-denial. Philosophers such as Stephan realize the virtuous life is not actually self-denial but a higher form of self-fulfillment. 'The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.' Discipline is necessary for man, and it was necessary for God-as-man.

The 'why have you forsaken me' is analogous to my brief hesitation and complaint of 'why do I have to do this' before I go ahead rip off the bandage firmly attached to my hairy leg, which I do, even though I don't want to in certain sense, because I know it is the least bad of all possible outcomes. It also makes explicit a higher truth for intelligent, but not omniscient beings such as ourselves that even though God exists - and who is more aware of this than Our Lord? - we as men will sometimes feel as though He does not. We will in fact feel that He has abandoned us in the moment even though upon full reflection on the matter we know He has not.

Stefan may claim that Our Lord, if He was God, must have been absolutely correct when He said He was abandoned. Yes, this accords with the reality long defended by Catholic tradition of Our Lord as both fully man and fully God. As a man, that is to say mere flesh, His mere flesh was abandoned; His body, His lower nature was abandoned to an ignominious death. As God, or spirit, or an entity that can and does perceive absolute truth, and is committed to living out that metaphysical truth regardless of the physical price He was not abandoned. Certainly, Our Lord also said 'I thirst' but this does not invalidate His divinity or indicate that God-qua-God can be thirsty (which He can't), just that God-qua-man can be.

Clearly, Stefan can understand this distinction. At 19:48 Stefan even points out that 'if we are dealing with a divine being, there is no difference between description and proscription.' Certainly true. Our Lord though spent His entire life dealing with non-divine beings, and even if it were possible for Him to take the infinite amount of time needed to describe and proscribe the entire universe in every little detail and situation, this was not something his audience would've been able to receive. God-as-God possesses all truth. God-as-man communicated it strategically and within limits.

To Stefan's second point, if Jesus was not God, yes it would be strange for Him to ask others to disassociate with everyone who disagrees with Him. As the Word Made Flesh, however, He is precisely the absolute moral standard which Stefan claims Our Lord did not provide as justification for such disassociation. I am almost surprised that Stefan wouldn't be aware that believers in God do indeed have a precise moral standard that we would judge others' behavior against before disassociating with them.

Thirdly, although the Bible is not a science textbook as Stefan seems to want and God may have many infinitely good reasons for not revealing certain advanced scientific truths at the time the Bible was written if necessary for man to progress according to God's plan, the Bible does indeed include references to advanced technological developments that while they seemed perhaps mythical to men of less technological days, seem entirely plausible today. The mark of the beast, mentioned in the Apocalypse, in which every man is required by a worldwide Satanic government to obtain a mark to buy or sell is not only scientifically possible with the advent of RFID and microchips, but there are actually Satanic politicians working to put in place such a system right now! What more evidence could Stefan want???

...to be continued.

The Return of Jacksonian Democracy

President Trump was at his very best yesterday during his visit to the Hermitage, President Andrew Jackson's estate in Tennessee. We mentioned before that Trump would do well to imitate the policies of the seventh president in many ways, kicking the life-tenured bureaucrats out of Washington, returning our federal government to the limits of the enumerated powers in the Constitution, making tariffs not income taxes the primary source of federal income, returning to a true laissez faire economic system without bailouts, subsidies and regulations that favor the corporate elite, and most importantly abolishing the Federal Reserve.

The Oppressed, Their Oppressors, and Their Champions

In sorting through the piles of sociopolitical analyses these days, it can be difficult to pinpoint exactly which groups have the greatest claim on being oppressed. Not to worry, ActualAnarchy does the work for you, bringing your dialectical materialist analysis into the paradigm of reality.

WORKERS 

 

Yes, labor ranks among the most exploited groups today. Whether it's a tax system that, as arch-capitalist Robert Kiyosaki points out, favors all other types of activity over working from 9 to 5 for a salary with benefits or our monetary system that leaves employees high-and-dry, making it almost impossible to own anything affordably, it seems the laboring masses are destined in our freemasonic state-capitalist system never to rise out of their current predicament. Of course, it doesn't help that the media is working overdrive to ensure the Trump administration fails in lowering taxes on labor and increasing incentives to create jobs in the United States.

WOMEN

 

We now know that the feminist and other social movements of the 1960's were actually covert operations by the CIA to coax a little more than half the population that had until that time not done anything economically productive (that is, served the capitalist class) - gasp! - into becoming a productive arm of the freemasonic state-capitalist system. With their ultimate goal of replacing the working human population with a robot army and then killing off mankind, the introduction and popularization of abortion, non-monogamy and birth control had the simultaneous effects of limiting the size of and stunting the emotional growth of the human population (women no longer used their maternal instincts, their highest calling; children are now raised by uncaring third parties or even the state!) while simultaneously harnessing the power of women into the creation of the robot apparatus they will eventually be replaced with.

HOMOSEXUALS

 

The next step was to turn human sexuality, a natural God-given creative power, into the very means of social control. With women now functioning primarily as productive assets for the freemasonic state-capitalist masters, human sexuality could no longer be expressed as it always was between a man and women for the raising of children. The media depicts homosexuality as the new freedom, but it is actually the new slavery. A new outlet for man's sexual proclivities had to be opened since the normal one now threatened the social power structure. The media bombards us with images that reinforce the idea that sterile, abusive, and unnatural relations between members of the same sex is somehow our highest calling.

THE OPPRESSORS

 

SATAN

 

Don't believe in Lucifer? Hillary Clinton and Lady Gaga do. And they intend to channel his power until you've worked your entire adult life paying taxes to them and their tax-payer subsidized lifestyles, while you die miserably in convalescent home in your mid-50s from pancreatic cancer with the family you never raised surrounding you and not having enough capital accumulated to retire even if you were to recover.

FREEMASONS

 

Yes, they depict themselves as bearers of light and brotherhood, even fronting with charitable institutions such as the Shriner's hospitals. But as the French Revolution demonstrates, the only light they bear is the false light of the creature they worship, Satan.

"MAINSTREAM" MEDIA

 

If you gave your enemies free-reign over your mind to do with it whatever they please, you would end up with the working-class person who tired from their over-burdensome 9 to 5 comes home and opens their mind to the influence of the state-capitalists propaganda for the remained of their waking hours. You thought you could trust a media apparatus funded entirely by the state-capitalists that tax you, took your wife and children, and don't want you to be a capitalist?


THE CHAMPIONS OF THE OPPRESSED

 

JESUS CHRIST

 

"I am the way, the truth and the life. No man cometh to the Father, but by me." The true faith held by Western civilization for millennia and not any modern conception of Christianity is the philosophy of truth, able to liberate the oppressed from their oppressors. How do we know Jesus can be believed? He paid the highest price for his truth.


CATHOLIC CHURCH

 

There is no way to escape the fact that Christ founded the Catholic Church. No human institution is without corruption, but no human institution has done more for the oppressed against the oppressors than the Catholic Church. Founding the modern sciences, opening the first universities and hospitals, caring for the sick and dying during the worst pandemic in human history, speaking to the Stockholm syndrome-suffering oppressed who defend their oppressors, keeping rabid Wahabism out of Europe, being the only source of intellectual thought in a world overrun by barbarians, attempting to assassinate Hitler, creating the very notion of a living wage, ending child-sacrifice in Meso-America, these are only a few symptoms of Catholic culture. All the things you think the modern freemasonic state-capitalist gave us actually originated from the charity of the Catholic Church.

AUSTRIAN ECONOMISTS

 

Yes, even the modern, materialist, capitalist west, insofar as it provides us any good, finds its roots in the philosophical thought of the Spanish Scholastics (not Adam Smith!), who established the inner-workings of economics and how to maintain social justice among all classes of men. Instead of being trapped as a permanent member of the working-class, our fiat-credit system should be abolished enabling workers themselves to purchase their own entrance into the leisured class through capital accumulation.

Even In This Fallen World, Conservatives Rule


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
Our Lord Jesus Christ, master of the universe, is the very logic, or natural law, or operating system of the created world. Indeed, as Thomas Aquinas demonstrates, it would be impossible for us to exist even in this present moment without God willing it so.


Because He is the way, the truth and the life, all order originates in Him. This order, or natural law as it is conceptualized, is the ultimate governing principle or government of the universe. All order is based on this natural law. Indeed, as philosophers such as Hans Hermann Hoppe point out, it is impossible even to speak or act without implicitly recognizing the natural order that allows one to do so.

Fundamental to this order though is free will. Thus, human beings can cooperate with God's plan for salvation and order, or, they have the radical option of rejecting it. Because God is true government, all those that cooperate with God and work to restore the order which others disrupt are conservative by their very nature.

It is true that free will allows for the possibility of a fallen world, such as ours. But this does not change the fundamental nature of God and His order. Just because certain souls have chosen to rebel against that order, the purpose of that order is not invalidated.
And God called the dry land, Earth; and the gathering together of the waters, he called Seas. And God saw that it was good.
 
Indeed, this world was made for the conservatives. Since now it is fallen, it is made for those who wish to prove their credentials to God. God's order has been violated. He respects our free will in doing so. Those who choose to remain faithful to God's order despite the costs of doing so, in turn justify the love of God who allows to continue in existence a world that has turned against Him.
Again the devil took him up into a very high mountain, and shewed him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them, And said to him: All these will I give thee, if falling down thou wilt adore me.
God's natural law has been violated, originally in the Garden of Eden by Eve, and then Adam, and now by millions daily. Man in his fallen nature fools himself believing that his government is greater than God's. Men are not wise enough to govern the things they set out to govern and are deluded by their own disordered lusts. The Austrian Economist Frederick Hayek has explained this in great detail as it applies to economics. This Fatal Conceit as he called it is no different than and finds its origin in Original Sin.

And so, as men overturn God's natural order, which is the order best suited for their self-actualization, men instead find themselves serving Satan, whose goal is the destruction of the human race.
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth. For the first heaven and the first earth was gone, and the sea is now no more.
But God's justice runs deeper. God can work His enemies best efforts into their own defeat. This fallen world will no longer do, but those conservatives who struggle to bring God's truth back into existence are helping secure their place in the New Jerusalem where God's natural order will not be violated and men will live to adore God's perfect order forever.

If that last phrase is meaningless to you, I encourage you to go to the middle of nowhere and look at the stars, or get lost pondering the beauty of the spontaneous social order God created as it is described in Human Action, or whatever activity in which you find it possible to seize a glimpse of the mind of God.

The truth is that the perfection of God's original order will one day be revealed to us, but we must live lives that open us to this possibility.
Behold I send you as sheep in the midst of wolves. Be ye therefore wise as serpents and simple as doves. 

Don't let the arrogance of the leftists get you down for even a second. That eternal optimism that was always the linchpin of true American culture is no less valid today. Americans must just realize that their optimism may not always be fulfilled in this life. Even if, as we see in the current occupant of the White House, sometimes it will be. And there is no optimism without God.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his justice, and all these things shall be added unto you.

In fact, if we live truly conservative lives, the worst thing the leftist thinks they can do to us is actually the best, killing us or making us suffer. Because in our persistence to do what is just even in the face of persecution, we become like our Lord.

There is nothing the leftists do that can change any of this.

This world belongs to you, conservative. Live in it, as Christ did, as if it does.
Go and reveal yourselves to be my cherished children. I am at your side and within you, provided that your faith is the light which shines upon you in these unhappy days. May your zeal make you famished for the glory and the honour of Jesus Christ. Fight, children of light, you, the few who can see. For now is the time of all times, the end of all ends.   - Our Lady of La Sallette

Tell Congress: Repeal And Replace!

The American people voted overwhelmingly to reject the politics of the post-Reagan era. The New World Order originally announced by Bush I and faithfully birthed into existence by the Clinton's, Bushes and Obama's over the last decades was firmly rejected, not just at the Presidential level, but in congress, statehouses and governorships.

We must seize the moment. The bill put forth by the Paul Ryan consensus in the House to repeal and replace Obamacare is a small turn towards the right direction, at a time that demands we leap into a new trajectory.

I support Senator Rand Paul's two-step process. I urge you to do the same. Please cosponsor or introduce a similar bill as that one announced by Sen. Paul and Congressman Jim Jordan today.

"We think you have to get rid of Obamacare completely, so tomorrow I will introduce the bill that every single Republican voted on just 15 months ago, the bill that actually repeals Obamacare," Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio said.

Step two is to cosponsor and introduce into the House Sen. Paul's SB 222 "Obamacare Replacement Act," creating a free-market based co-op system for small business insurance, instead of a system rigged in favor of Big Insurance.

You must take action today. If not, you risk facing me or others like me in hotly contested primaries when you are up for election. We will not stop until the United States is once again a bastion of free market prosperity and the rule of law.

Sincerely,

Copy and paste, and tell your congressional representatives, repeal and replace today!

A Season of Reparation Begins

When the United States emerged as the lone superpower at the end of the Cold War, the powerful governmental apparatus built up to defeat the Soviet Union was hijacked. Politicians were not prepared to cede back to local institutions the excess power they had hastily relegated to themselves since the end of the Second World War. Our peace dividend was never fully paid.

No longer constrained by an equalizing force on the world stage and all too ready to use power to justify retaining it, US politicians fell prey to all sorts of special interests. Power remained concentrated in Washington. Eventually, well-connected think-tanks like the Project For A New American Century schemed a little too far, evening hastening "some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor."

Hopefully we can recall our recent history. The American people were distracted with two illusory economic booms, first in internet stocks and then in housing. Meanwhile, with criticism held at bay by 9-11, US politicians began the longest and most expensive military effort ever, surpassing in many ways even Vietnam and World War II. Concurrently, we experienced an explosion in growth of the surveillance state at home and with the end of the housing bubble, welfare dependency metrics hit unsustainable highs.

What ensued was the hideous cultural agenda of the Obama administration and wild assertions by the same that US institutions were now to play second fiddle to their international counterparts. Only the dimmest mind refused to recognize that we were headed on the road to a Satanic New World Order, long a dream of psychopathic leftists and ruthless financiers.

Actually, our President does a fine job of summarizing what came next in yesterday's address to Congress.
We've defended the borders of other nations, while leaving our own borders wide open, for anyone to cross -- and for drugs to pour in at a now unprecedented rate.
And we've spent trillions of dollars overseas, while our infrastructure at home has so badly crumbled.
Then, in 2016, the earth shifted beneath our feet. The rebellion started as a quiet protest, spoken by families of all colors and creeds --- families who just wanted a fair shot for their children, and a fair hearing for their concerns.
But then the quiet voices became a loud chorus -- as thousands of citizens now spoke out together, from cities small and large, all across our country.
Finally, the chorus became an earthquake -- and the people turned out by the tens of millions, and they were all united by one very simple, but crucial demand, that America must put its own citizens first ... because only then, can we truly MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
As above so below. The liturgical seasons of the Catholic Church are themselves a fractal representation of the larger eons of human existence. Today March 1, 2017 is Ash Wednesday, starting the Catholic season of reparation, an exact similitude of the immediate need for America and European nations to repair the damage of the previous decades and a God-given opportunity to do so.

Catholic theologians do not attribute to evil any power that it does not have. In fact, all that sin consists of is a lack, an absence of some due good. Something that should be there but is missing, this is sin. We are all painfully aware of the social consequences of sin. The good news is that God gives us the ability to share in His creative powers; we are able to make up in some way for our own faults and even in a limited way for the faults of others.

Giving something up for lent is not just some trite ritual. Austrian economics explains that capital, and properly allocated capital, is a necessity for human growth and flourishing. By giving up something unnecessary, we make room for the things that are necessary. And by giving up resources used for a lesser need, we free up resources to be used for a higher need.

Instead of wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, we should have built new ports, municipal water systems, and highways at home. Instead of eating meat and full meals today, we can use the money to buy a new book or spend the extra time praying. From Fisheaters.com:
We meditate on "The Four Last Things": Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell, and we also practice mortifications by "giving up something" that would be a sacrifice to do without. The sacrifice could be anything from desserts to television to the marital embrace, and it can entail, too, taking on something unpleasant that we'd normally avoid, for example, going out of one's way to do another's chores, performing "random acts of kindness," etc. A practice that might help some, especially small children, to think sacrificially is to make use of "Sacrifice Beads" in the same way that St. Thérèse of Lisieux did as a child.

Because of the focus on penance and reparation, it is traditional to make sure we go to Confession at least once during this Season to fulfill the precept of the Church that we go to Confession at least once a year, and receive the Eucharist at least once a year during Eastertide. A beautiful old custom associated with Lenten Confession is to, before going to see the priest, bow before each member of your household and to any you've sinned against, and say, "In the Name of Christ, forgive me if I've offended you." One responds with "God will forgive you." Done with an extensive examination of conscience and a sincere heart, this practice can be quite healing (also note that confessing sins to a priest is a Sacrament which remits mortal and venial sins; confessing sins to those you've offended is a sacramental which, like all sacramentals one piously takes advantage of, remits venial sins. Both are quite good for the soul!)

In addition to mortification and charity, seeing and living Lent as a forty day spiritual retreat is a good thing to do. Spiritual reading should be engaged in (over and above one's regular Lectio Divina). Maria von Trapp recommended "the Book of Jeremias and the works of Saints, such as The Ascent of Mount Carmel, by St. John of the Cross; The Introduction to a Devout Life, by St. Francis de Sales; The Story of a Soul, by St. Thérèse of Lisieux; The Spiritual Castle, by St. Teresa of Avila; the Soul of the Apostolate, by Abbot Chautard; the books of Abbot Marmion, and similar works."

As to prayer, praying the beautiful Seven Penitential Psalms (Psalms 6, 31, 37, 50, 101, 129, and 142) is a traditional practice. It is most traditional to pray all of these each day of Lent, but if time is an issue, you can pray them all on just the Fridays of Lent, or, because there are seven of them, and seven Fridays in Lent, you might want to consider praying one on each Friday. These Psalms, which include the Psalms "Miserére" and "De Profundis," are perfect expressions of contrition and prayers for mercy. So apt are these Psalms at expressing contrition that, as he lay dying in A.D. 430, St. Augustine asked that a monk write them in large letters near his bed so he could easily read them.

Before They Were #2, #3 and Trump Economic Advisor

They were just a couple of congressmen and an economist dreaming up a gold standard.

In our quest for the details of what we can expect in the way of monetary policy over the next four years, we stumbled upon this little known CSPAN video dating from 2010.


In it we find now Vice President Mike Pence, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, and economic advisor to the President Judy Shelton shell-shocked by the proximity of the financial crisis and singing the praises of the gold standard.

While one might still question just what kind of "gold standard" the two politicians have in mind, the economist seems a little more clear-headed. In response to our concern that the Trump administration might favor an SDR partially backed by gold in place of the dollar, Ms. Shelton has something very different in mind, as her article in the Wall Street Journal around the same time makes clear:
The U.S. should not replenish the coffers of a multilateral bureaucracy ...Instead, Congress should call for the IMF's dismantlement and restitution of its assets.

Zhou Xiaochuan, China's powerful central banker, has authored a proposal for international monetary reform that would replace the dollar with 'a super-sovereign reserve currency managed by a global institution.' Citing 'the inherent deficiencies caused by using credit-based national currencies,' he suggests the SDR could assume this role. In the view of Mr. Zhou, the way to enhance international monetary and financial stability is to have member countries gradually entrust their reserves 'to the centralized management of the IMF.'

Before anyone gives any credence to the notion of having the IMF take on the task of issuing a new global currency, however, we need to remember that the original Bretton Woods system worked precisely because the dollar was convertible into gold at a fixed price. And gold is real money.
Congress should just say no.
Let's hope that in addition to the President, Ms. Shelton still has the ears of the Vice President and Speaker of the House. And that she can stick to her guns.

End the IMF. And then, End the Fed.

As a Tinkling Cymbal

If I speak with the tongues of men, and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. (1 Corinthians 13:1)
At a conversation with friends over coffee, we were discussing the most effective way to govern a society. One aspect of government we touched on was how rules should be communicated to and enforced among the governed.

Actual Anarchy gave the example of the towns in Europe that abolished all traffic laws while simultaneously reconstructing roads in such a way that the only way to drive on the roads would be the 'safe' way. For example, imagine a straight and wide boulevard where it is perfectly possible to travel at 80 mph even though it may endanger other users of the road, a sign that says you can only drive 40 mph, and certain people who are paid to act as 'officers' who have a limited ability to enforce what the sign says and sometimes abuse that power. Instead, the road is now constructed of cobblestone so that it is literally impossible to drive faster than 40mph because it would destroy your car.

The results, of course, speak for themselves.

My friend made the seemingly convincing argument that, while he didn't fully disagree with this later method, he thought that the sign still had value inasmuch as it can explain to a user of the roads the proper method of driving. His argument, if we understood it correctly, is that it is an act of charity to take the time to explain the need and how to drive safely, rather than simply forcing you to do so.

This struck us a reasonable enough argument. That is, until we drove home from the coffee shop.

On the way home, we encountered an intersection with dual traffic lights. As we approached the intersection, it was clear our light was green, had been so, and continued to be for some time. During the twenty seconds or so it took us to proceed to and through the intersection, we noticed the second light was not functioning. And in that second lane sat a car motionless, the driver seemingly unable to proceed without the approval of his lane's green light.

While it could be true the driver was oblivious for other reasons, it recalled to mind the nature of language and symbols. The problem it becomes apparent is that while language can be extremely useful, relying on it too much can be downright harmful. If society becomes overly dependent upon signs and legislation for its methods of acting, we can begin to disintermediate ourselves from reality and begin mistaking the abstract symbol for the concrete reality.

We become as drivers in need of green lights, even though all the prerequisites for driving forward - even legally - have been fulfilled. But because that symbol we are too highly dependent upon is not there, we are paralyzed.

So, while symbols have a use, we must not come to replace reality with symbols. As in the verse from Corinthians, if we are all words and no action, we have not charity.

A symbol is like the tinkling cymbal. Remember that.

A Nationalism, If You Can Keep It

“Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?”

  “A Republic, if you can keep it.” - Benjamin Franklin, at the Constitutional Convention
With his CPAC speech President Donald Trump has begun to put to rest concerns, originally posited most notably at Philosophy of Metrics, that contrary to his populist posturing Trump's administration might mark a fundamental transition away from a strong US Dollar to the SDR-centric global monetary regime.

For those that don't know, the SDR is basically world-money, conjured out of thin air like every other national fiat currency today. Instead of being managed at the national level, its value is determined on a multi-lateral basis (read: "by globalists") at the IMF. It is backed by a certain percentage of other national currencies, such as the US Dollar, Chinese Yuan, Japanese Yen and British Pound. There is even speculation that the IMF might include a small percentage of gold in case of emergency just to lend stability to what could easily become a very unbalanced system of rapidly counterfeited digital world money backed by equally rapidly counterfeited national paper currencies. Not that you could actually trade in your SDR for gold. No, no, they'll just hang on to it for you.  ; )

The implementation strategy for the globalists remains the standard one of waiting for (or perhaps creating) some major financial crisis. Then they will roll out the 'solution,' which is really just more of the same taken to the next level. It will be presented as the needed fix before the market crashes another 5000 points and you lose all your money in your 401k.

It was posited by Philosophy of Metrics that Trump might represent a reverse-psychology approach. As a candidate he would portray himself as every bit of the American ideal, but behind the exterior of "more jobs" and "Chinese currency manipulation" might lurk a ploy to transition from the dollar to the SDR with the excuse being that it is the only way to decrease our huge trade deficits. The "American sovereignty" candidate would be used by the globalists to inflict what would be perhaps the greatest blow to American sovereignty ever, the stand-down of the dollar and the rise of the multi-lateral SDR. And Trump's motive? He was just paying back the Rothchilds for the funds he needed to save his real estate empire when the Atlantic City casino market tanked in the early '90s.
After quickly expanding the reach of Resorts International to Atlantic City in the final years of the 1980’s, Donald Trump found himself in financial trouble as the real estate market in New York tanked. The three casinos in Atlantic City, like other Trump assets, were under threat from lenders.  It was only with the assistance and assurance of Wilbur L. Ross Jr., senior managing director of Rothschild Inc. that Trump was allowed to keep the casinos and rebuild his threatened empire.
Yes, that is the same Wilbur Ross who is Secretary of Commerce today in the Trump administration. Such a scheme sounds plausible, and anyone who ventures into politics is well-advised to watch his back, especially if he is just an American voter looking for an honest politician. No doubt the Rothchilds and similar-minded bankers are scheming a global currency, as a means to achieving their world government. The question remains whether Donald Trump is our most effective means to combat these globalists or whether he represents the best false-flag strategy yet conjured up by the enemies of American sovereignty and common decency. Philosophy of Metrics indicates a G-20 monetary conference called by Trump at Mar-A-Lago will be the tip off.

Alex Jones, famed champion of American sovereignty and anti-globalist, has taken the opposite view. He seems convinced Trump is the real deal with no ulterior motives. If anything, according to Jones, Trump is simply trying to get even with a system he doesn't like, but had to deal with in order to save his real estate empire. But now, we have the first words from the Donald himself indicating his anti-globalist bonafides.
Global cooperation - dealing with other countries, getting along with other countries - is good; it's very important. But there is no such thing as a global anthem, a global currency, or a global flag. This is the United States of America that I'm representing. I'm not representing the globe.
If these are the words of a true American, they represent the most significant return to the Americana of the Founding Fathers in the last one-hundred years. If Trump can implement a nationalist movement, an America-first foreign policy coupled with a return to authentic capitalism at home, Trump will go down in the American pantheon with the likes of Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson. The most critical point: it will be up to us to keep the nationalism that Trump is re-establishing.

The strategy seems to be playing out. All the right people seem to oppose Donald Trump. CNN, Republicans and Democrats, Glenn Beck, Pope Francis, Hollywood socialites, European and Chinese politicians, George Soros, career bureaucrats in the CIA and other federal agencies, even Goldman Sachs gave all of their campaign donations to Hillary Clinton.

We must hold Trump accountable to his script. There is and there will be no such thing as a global currency. In fact, after we have lowered income taxes, eliminated unnecessary and unconstitutional federal programs and agencies, repealed Obamacare, and thereby returned the US economy to actual economic growth, we must go all the way. Just as Jefferson and Jackson did, we must abolish the Bank of the United States, or what is today called the Federal Reserve.

As we have long outlined here at Actual Anarchy, this final act of repealing our Central Bank is the key to exterminating the key source of leverage the globalists have against us. It makes sense that Trump wouldn't do this out of the box. The economy is too weak and his coalition untried. We must step up to the plate. We must run for Congress as Trumpians! We must start businesses, start families, get jobs! We must work harder to inform our fellow citizens! We must give aid and comfort to those who are doing these things.

This movement did not start with Donald Trump. This movement is not even about Donald Trump. But we must hold Trump accountable to his words, his pledge of American sovereignty. There is and there will be no such thing as a global currency.

And once it is clear that there remains enough Americans willing to take advantage of the door Trump is momentarily opening for us, that we are still strong enough to govern ourselves as a morally upright and productive people, we will shove the zombie of globalism into the coffin of history and nail it shut. End the Fed!

Capitalism is Neither Materialistic Nor Debasing


The only path to morality, fulfillment and holiness is through capital accumulation.
If one man hires out to another his strength or skill, he does so for the purpose of receiving in return what is necessary for the satisfaction of his needs; he therefore expressly intends to acquire a right full and real, not only to the remuneration, but also to the disposal of such remuneration, just as he pleases. Thus, if he lives sparingly, saves money, and, for greater security, invests his savings in land, the land, in such case, is only his wages under another form; and, consequently, a working man's little estate thus purchased should be as completely at his full disposal as are the wages he receives for his labor. But it is precisely in such power of disposal that ownership obtains, whether the property consist of land or chattels. Socialists, therefore, by endeavoring to transfer the possessions of individuals to the community at large, strike at the interests of every wage-earner, since they would deprive him of the liberty of disposing of his wages, and thereby of all hope and possibility of increasing his resources and of bettering his condition in life. (Rerum Novarum, Pope Leo XIII)
The greatest beneficiaries of capitalism often become the greatest opponents of capitalism. One need not look any further than the designs of the Rockefellers, Rothschilds, and Soros' to create a New World Order, based on a one world fiat currency exclusively under their control and a regulatory superstate whose dictates apply to the mass of people, leaving the cartelized, monopolized, corporatist less-than-one-percent free to take from the poor and give to the rich. There will always remain the temptation for those who achieve great riches to become overly attached to them and their power and to use their wealth to prevent others from rightfully accumulating wealth.

It is the aspiring capitalist's right "to acquire a right full and real, not only to the remuneration, but also to the disposal of such remuneration, just as he pleases" that is most under attack by the enemies of the free market. We are all aspiring capitalists. We must be, for the logical principles of economics are founded upon an essential fact that no man can escape, "man acts."

It is the Federal Reserve that most debases our rights, by depriving us of the "full and real" effects of our money. Because federal reserve notes are the legal tender of the nation, there is no lawful alternative to the Federal Reserve System. Therefore, we cannot avoid using an institution whose very existence entails the legal counterfeit of currency, to the benefit of those that receive the newly printed money - governmental agencies and large backs - and to the detriment of aspiring capitalists everywhere who must accumulate this currency at one time or another, even as the value of this accumulation is steadily counterfeited or 'inflated' away.

The only position consonant with true American capitalism is a return to free banking accompanied by what is historically most likely, a return of gold or silver backed money. For the Catholics also, the only non-fraudulent banking system fully consonant with natural law is the same.

As Ron Paul said, we must end the fed. If Trump represents a true return of Americana, he must end the fed.

Why aren't you as rich as you should be?

End the fed.

EMERGENCY: FEBRUARY 22! Ask Alex Jones about Trump-Rothchilds Connection

Have you ever participated in a Reddit Ask Me Anything?

It's a forum-type format on Reddit.com where well-known personalities accept unscripted questions from anyone.
 
Apparently, Alex Jones will be doing one [when we have a prior commitment] at 8pm central tomorrow (2/22), see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMW21XaJsPQ
 
Someone should ask him about the Trump-SDR thesis that we covered in detail here, http://actualanarchy.blogspot.com/2017/01/are-we-about-to-be-trumped.html
 
Obviously Trump has done some good, but does he know about the Trump-Wilbur Ross bailout via the Rothschilds in Atlantic City, and the possibility of the cheaper-dollar Trump movement being used as cover to hand monetary policy over to the IMF SDR world currency?
 
And it wouldn't hurt if you threw in a link to this blog. ; )

Let's find out if the answer to 1984 is actually 1776.

THANK YOU!

Catholicism Is Not an Endorsement of the State

"Thou shouldst not have any power against Me, unless it were given thee from above. Therefore, he that hath delivered Me to thee, hath the greater sin." John 19:11

Even if we are ultimately resigned to the [in]justice the state metes out, a Catholic's first duty is to the truth. Submission to authority is not the full story. While Our Lord, as God, certainly had more standing to challenge the religious and secular leaders of His day than any one of us does to challenge our leaders today, it remains clear from His actions that pursuit of truth will sometimes involve vocal and physical resistance to those who claim unjustly to be the rulers of humanity.

You'll notice in the passage above that while Jesus places greater blame on the plotting of the pharisees, who retain the "greater sin," the Roman state is by no means exonerated.

Indeed, if our Lady is to be believed at La Salette among many other apparitions, in the time we are living disobedience to the powers that be [and resignation to the injustice with which they repay our rightful disobedience] may be a prerequisite of sainthood.

Most are aware of the words of our Lord to the pharisees calling them a brood of vipers and His turning over of tables in the temple. The application of our Lord's teachings to real world governance run much more thoroughly through history than many are aware.

In the "City of God," St. Augustine tells the story of a pirate captured by Alexander the Great. The Emperor angrily demanded of him, "How dare you molest the seas?" To which the pirate replied, "How dare you molest the whole world? Because I do it with a small boat, I am called a pirate and a thief. You, with a great navy, molest the world and are called an emperor." St. Augustine thought the pirate's answer was "elegant and excellent."

Perhaps the greatest condemnation of the monarchical state - that so many Catholics hold in such high esteem - comes from none other than the LORD GOD Himself when speaking to the prophet Samuel:
And it came to pass when Samuel was old, that he appointed his sons to be judges over Israel. ... Then all the ancients of Israel being assembled, came to Samuel to Ramatha.  And they said to him: Behold thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: make us a king, to judge us, as all nations have.
And the word was displeasing in the eyes of Samuel, that they should say: Give us a king, to judge us. And Samuel prayed to the Lord. And the Lord said to Samuel: Hearken to the voice of the people in all that they say to thee. For they have not rejected thee, but Me, that I should not reign over them. According to all their works, they have done from the day that I brought them out of Egypt until this day: as they have forsaken Me, and served strange gods, so do they also unto thee. Now therefore hearken to their voice: but yet testify to them, and foretell them the right of the king, that shall reign over them. Then Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people that had desired a king of him,
And said: This will be the right of the king, that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and put them in his chariots, and will make them his horsemen, and his running footmen to run before his chariots, And he will appoint of them to be his tribunes, and centurions, and to plough his fields, and to reap his corn, and to make him arms and chariots.Your daughters also he will take to make him ointments, and to be his cooks, and bakers. And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your best oliveyards, and give them to his servants. Moreover he will take the tenth of your corn, and of the revenues of your vineyards, to give his eunuchs and servants.
Your servants also and handmaids, and your goodliest young men, and your asses he will take away, and put them to his work. Your flocks also he will tithe, and you shall be his servants. And you shall cry out in that day from the face of the king, whom you have chosen to yourselves. and the Lord will not hear you in that day, because you desired unto yourselves a king. But the people would not hear the voice of Samuel, and they said: Nay: but there shall be a king over us. And we also will be like all nations: and our king shall judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles for us.
And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and rehearsed them in the ears of the Lord. And the Lord said to Samuel: Hearken to their voice, and make them a king.
It is clear that GOD Himself considers the Jewish people's desire for a king as an affront to His Own authority. Even here we see the beginnings of the modern welfare state coming into view. The 50% income tax rate of modern European states and the workaholic feminism that dominates the present American generation are just further degradations from 'taking the tenth of you corn' and 'making your daughters his cooks and bakers.'  This is not to say there is no reason to hold particular Catholic monarchs in high esteem. God bless us with such governors! But praise for monarchy other than Christ's per se is a different matter, and we must not treat as an absolute a Catholic preference for monarchy that was at most a historical necessity in the face of a militant and centralized Protestantism.

God's dismay at the desire of His people for a monarch may become more comprehensible to modern ears if we say a little about the method of government that until this time God had instituted among His chosen people. As the Douay-Rheims commentary points out, "the government of Israel hitherto had been a theocracy, in which God himself immediately ruled, by laws which He had enacted, and by judges extraordinarily raised up by Himself; and therefore He complains that His people rejected Him, in desiring a change of government."

While modern Christian culture is a victim of protestant sentimentalism, even Catholics today seem to get caught up in pseudo-romanticism when considering such concepts as 'grace,' 'theocracy' or 'God himself immediately ruling by judges extraordinarily raised up by himself.' Magic is a tool of Satan. God is the master of reality, and while grace has a supernatural origin, it encompasses real-world, concrete effects. Only the profane degrade the reality of God acting in the world to some sort of "Hocus Pocus."

The truth is we can describe in great detail the methods of governance that prevailed under the Judges of the Old Testament prior to the Jewish monarchy. Natural law scholars have done so since the earliest days of Western civilization. Look no further than Bruno Leoni's magnum opus, Freedom and the Law, which answers the question 'does law require legislation?' with a resounding 'no!'
Leoni's great contribution is to point out...an alternative to the tyranny of legislation. Rather than accept either administrative law or legislation, Leoni calls for a return to the ancient traditions and principles of "judge-made law" as a method of limiting the State and insuring liberty. In the Roman private law, in the Continental Civil Codes, in the Anglo-Saxon common law, "law" did not mean what we think today: endless enactments by a legislature or executive. "Law" was not enacted but found or discovered; it was a body of customary rules that had, like languages or fashions, grown up spontaneously and purely voluntarily among the people. These spontaneous rules constituted "the law"; and it was the works of experts in the law—old men of the tribe, judges, or lawyers—to determine what the law was and how the law would apply to the numerous cases in dispute that perpetually arise.
"Judge-made law" should not be confused with judge-made-up law, which prevails in the United States today, wherein rulings have basis neither in the Constitution nor natural-law. Obviously, 'judge-made' law requires the utmost precision of reason and exercise of good-faith. It is a logical, organic process of finding the natural law and was correctly seen by the ancient Israelite to originate in God Himself, who as any Catholic knows is the Logos. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

Man's knowledge and practice of the natural law has progressed under obedience to God and regressed under obedience to men. It reached its height under the Catholic Church during the decentralized middle ages wherein the competition of a plurality of sovereignties and jurisdictions gave birth to the very "freedoms" liberals were to claim as their own invention after the rise of the Weberian state.
Decentralization of power also came to mark the domestic arrangements of the various European polities. Here feudalism – which produced a nobility rooted in feudal right rather than in state-service – is thought by a number of scholars to have played an essential role (see, e.g., Baechler 1975, 78). Through the struggle for power within the realms, representative bodies came into being, and princes often found their hands tied by the charters of rights (Magna Carta, for instance) which they were forced to grant their subjects. In the end, even within the relatively small states of Europe, power was dispersed among estates, orders, chartered towns, religious communities, corps, universities, etc., each with its own guaranteed liberties. The rule of law came to be established throughout much of the Continent.
The extent of these economic and political "liberties" were expounded upon most exactly by the Spanish Scholastics. Once revolution began to sweep Europe centralizing power and giving rise to the modern nation-state, the natural law tradition became misidentified with Liberalism. While these [classical] liberals did at least in their early formulation attempt to adhere to traditional natural law concepts, they did so by attempting to coax a now all-powerful state into accepting the dictates of natural law, something such states are not inclined to do. It is critical to take hold of the fact that while classical liberals promoted natural law concepts, they did so within the context of legally positivist government, and were not the originators of the values they championed.

Indeed, with the modern nation state we have a bifurcation of the Logos, the natural law, from the apparatus of government. This has led to much confusion and as we have pointed out, requires a reintegration of ideas seen incorrectly as opposing one another.

It should be increasingly clear that our Lord's admonition to 'render to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's' was an appropriate tautological response to His interlocutors. Our Lord was not about to begin the historically nuanced analysis necessary to delineate the political order that most coincides with the nature of reality. His was a simple statement of truth, if X, do what is appropriate for X; if Y, do what is appropriate for Y.

While Catholicism may necessitate a toleration of the state as a lesser evil than actual anarchy, we are making a diabolical mistake if we consider the modern nation-state a good in itself. Logic, history and theology bear witness to the truth that the government which accords most with natural law governs best. The ultimate foundation of all legitimate political power is our Lord and conforms perfectly with His law.
