Those Who Pervert Justice and Truth to "Save Democracy" In This Life Will Answer to Christ the King for Their Corruption

Much is happening the maddening, farcical world of Judeo-Masonic naturalism, including, of course, the continuing cascade of revelations concerning the corrupt Biden Family Crime Syndicate, which is based upon its capo di tutti capo’s utter disregard for the sanctification and salvation of his own immoral soul and that of his family members by his sociopathic behavior, pathological lying, and his abject surrender to the forces of the world, the flesh, and the devil to curry favor with the masses. In a world, you see, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., has no regard for the following words of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ:

For what doth it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his own soul? Or what exchange shall a man give for his soul? (Matthew 16: 26)

There is no need for me to repeat everything I have written about the reprobated crime kingpin from the Delaware in recent commentaries (see, for example, "Hands Off My Family" Won't Work for the "Big Guy" with Christ the King at the Particular Judgment and Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.'s., Ultimate Treason is Against Christ the King) as the facts about this manipulative sociopath are abundantly clear to anyone who has a modicum of intellectual honesty.

Nonetheless, however, it is useful for purposes of this present commentary to illustrate that the self-anointed “defenders of democracy” are nothing other than authoritarian, fascistic thugs who cover up their own serial criminal act while inventing crimes as the pretext to silence, persecute, prosecute, and imprison leading “dissidents,” who are, of course, deemed to be “threats to democracy.” The goal of all this is to redefine “free speech” to mean only that which is approved by government apparatchiks and their sycophantic supporters among their like-minded  cultural elites and within the mainslime media to complete the “transformation” of the United States of America into a replica of Soviet Russia or, perhaps more accurately, contemporary Red China. Take your pick as either applies.

To wit, “One Set of Rules for All” Jack Smith had his aides maintain contacts with the Biden White House throughout the course of his supposedly “nonpartisan” probe into former President Donald John Trump to make crimes of the latter’s being so imprudent and politically stupid as to play directly into his enemies’ waiting hands:

The White House counsel’s office met with a top aide to Special Counsel Jack Smith just weeks before he brought charges against former President Trump for allegedly mishandling classified documents — raising serious concerns about coordinated legal efforts aimed at President Biden’s likely opponent in 2024.

Jay Bratt, who joined the special counsel team in November 2022, shortly after it was formed, took a meeting in the White House on March 31, 2023, with Caroline Saba, deputy chief of staff for the White House counsel’s office, White House visitor logs show.

They were joined in the 10 a.m. meeting by Danielle Ray, an FBI agent in the Washington field office.

Nine weeks later, Trump was indicted by Smith’s office on June 8, 2023.

Bratt, 63, also met with Saba at the White House in November 2021, when Trump was mired in negotiations with the National Archives, who were demanding the return of presidential records from his Mar-a-Lago estate before a formal investigation had not yet been opened.

Bratt, 63, also met with Saba at the White House in November 2021, when Trump was mired in negotiations with the National Archives, who were demanding the return of presidential records from his Mar-a-Lago estate before a formal investigation had not yet been opened.

Bratt had a third meeting in the White House in September 2021, this time with Katherine Reily, an advisor to the White House chief of staff’s office.

The logs offer no information about what was discussed at the meetings.

Critics and legal experts questioned why Bratt was taking meetings at all with the White House counsel’s office while part of an active investigation into President Biden’s likely 2024 Republican opponent.

“There is no legitimate purpose for a line [DOJ] guy to be meeting with the White House except if it’s coordinated by the highest levels,” said former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a one-time top federal prosecutor in the Southern District.

When asked if he believed the White House and special counsel were coordinating the prosecution of Trump, Giuliani said: “You’re [dern tootin'] right I do.”

“What’s happening is they have trashed every ethical rule that exists and they have created a state police. It is a Biden state prosecutor and a Biden state police,” he continued.

The former mayor, who represented Trump during special counsel Robert Mueller’s 2018 probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election, was indicted last week in Fulton County, Georgia in connection with attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley said the March meeting was particularly troublesome and “raises obvious concerns about visits to the White House after [Bratt] began his work with the special counsel.”

“There is no reason why the Justice Department should not be able to confirm whether this meeting was related to the ongoing investigation or concerns some other matter,” he said.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for the special counsel, said Bratt was at the White House for a “case-related interview” but declined to comment further.

The FBI declined to comment.

A person with knowledge of the 2023 visit insisted that it was “an interview of a career official who was also working at the White House during the Trump Administration.”

The same individual said the 2021 visits were “national security related.”

Bratt, a Harvard-educated attorney, is a longtime Department of Justice hand and has served as chief of its counterintelligence and export control section in the national security division since October 2018.

The section focuses on investigating and prosecuting cases affecting the national security and foreign relations of the United States.

In this capacity, Bratt visited Mar-a-Lago in June 2022 to inspect storage facilities at the property and personally interacted with Trump.

He later became a leading advocate for the unannounced FBI raid of the property in August of that year, the Washington Post reported.

Stanley Woodward, a lawyer for Trump’s valet, Walt Nauta — who has also been charged by the special counsel’s office — accused Bratt in June of trying to coerce his client’s cooperation by floating Woodward’s past application to be a judge.

In a sealed filing obtained by The Guardian, Woodward alleged that Bratt floated his past judicial application to suggest it might be looked at more favorably if his client were to cooperate with the government against Trump.

Bratt is not the only Department of Justice connection to a Trump indictment.

Another longtime Department of Justice official, Matthew Colangelo — freshly hired in December 2022 into the office of Manhattan’s far-left District Attorney Alvin Bragg — also played a critical role in Trump’s indictment in New York City for alleged hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels. (Biden staffers met with Special Counsel Jack Smith's aides before Trump indictment.)

Yes, the system is rigged. The goose is cooked. The fix is in.

As I have noted so many times in the past, though, the devolution of a secular, religiously indifferentist republic into a system of rank totalitarianism in fact if not in name is but an inevitable consequence of the Protestant Revolution’s violent overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King and the subsequent rise and institutionalization of one Judeo-Masonic naturalist falsehood after another. Systems based on lies produce liars, and we have been government by a series of lying blasphemers since July 4, 1776, although it is certainly the case that the boldness of such lying and blasphemy has increased in the past thirty-four years since George Herbert Walker “Read My Lips, No New Taxes” Bush took the presidential oath on January 20, 1989.

Even more importantly for present purposes, though, is the fact that “Pappy” Bush resorted to the old-fashioned American tool of warfare propaganda that used by pamphleteers, most notably Thomas Paine, to generate support for a break with Great Britain as the Second Continental Congress, which first met on May 10, 1775, just three weeks after the Battles of Lexington and Concord that marked the start of the War for Independence, prior to its promulgation of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, and throughout the course of this nation’s history, up to and including the ongoing military involvements in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and Libya. “Pappy Bush’s” administration deceived the American public as follows in the quest to obtain Congressional “authorization,” not an Act of War as required by the Section 8 of Article I of the United States Constitution, in the fall of 1990 to expel Iraqi forces from Kuwait, which had been invaded on August 2, 1990, just eight days after American Ambassador to Iraq April Glaspie gave the impression to Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein that the government of the United States of America would take no action if he decided to order his forces “annex” Kuwait:

It's plainly wrong for a member of Congress to collaborate with a public relations firm to produce knowingly deceptive testimony on an important issue. Yet Representative Tom Lantos of California has been caught doing exactly that. His behavior warrants a searching inquiry by the House Ethics Committee.

Mr. Lantos is co-chairman of the Congressional Human Rights Caucus. An article last week on The Times's Op-Ed page by John MacArthur, the publisher of Harper's magazine, revealed the identity of a 15-year-old Kuwaiti girl who told the caucus that Iraqi soldiers had removed scores of babies from incubators and left them to die.

The girl, whose testimony helped build support for the Persian Gulf war, was identified only as "Nayirah," supposedly to protect family members still in Kuwait. Another piece of information was also withheld: that she is not just some Kuwaiti but the daughter of the Kuwaiti Ambassador to the U.S.

Saddam Hussein committed plenty of atrocities, but not, apparently, this one. The teen-ager's accusation, at first verified by Amnesty International, was later refuted by that group as well as by other independent human rights monitors. But the issue is not so much the accuracy of the testimony as the identity and undisclosed bias of the witness.

How did the girl's testimony come about? It was arranged by the big public relations firm of Hill & Knowlton on behalf of a client, the Kuwaiti-sponsored Citizens for a Free Kuwait, which was then pressing Congress for military intervention. Mr. Lantos knew the girl's identity but concealed it from the public and from the other caucus co-chairman, Representative John E. Porter of Illinois.

Mr. Lantos says that the fact that Nayirah is the Ambassador's daughter did not alter her credibility. That doesn't wash. Had her identity been known, her accusations surely would have faced greater skepticism and been questioned more closely. Mr. Porter isn't angered that he was misled. But his complacency is far less troubling than Mr. Lantos's lack of candor and lapse of judgment.

The episode also calls into question the dubious financial dealings of the House caucus system. Unlike Congressional committees, which act on legislation, the caucuses bring together like-minded members to highlight issues like human rights abuses, the environment and minority concerns.

Current rules prohibit the caucuses from accepting private donations or government grants. But the caucuses often have close ties to companion nonprofit "foundations" or "institutes" that attract funds from special interests. Caucus leaders often play a central role in these foundations.

Until recently, for example, Mr. Lantos and Mr. Porter headed the Congressional Human Rights Foundation. It rents space in Hill & Knowlton's Washington headquarters at a reduced rate. The same Citizens for a Free Kuwait that produced the mysterious Nayirah also gave $50,000 to the foundation sometime after Iraq's invasion of Kuwait. The foundation has financed caucus travel, including trips by Mr. Lantos and his wife.

Chances are that Congress would have voted to pursue the war even without this deception. Still, it's disappointing that Mr. Lantos, a tiger in pursuing low ethical standards at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, has turned into such a house pet. (Deception on Capitol Hill.)

Thus it is that there was a great deal of disinformation that led up to the Persian Gulf War. It has always been thus with governments of the United States of America. Always.

It is perhaps completely unnecessary to repeat all the myriad, serial lies told by the pathological liars named William Jefferson Blythe Clinton and Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton, but I will go head and provide a brief reminder of their sordid history of prevarication:

As the handful of people who subscribed to the old printed journal Christ or Chaos might recall, an article of a similar title ran in the printed pages of Christ or Chaos about a decade ago. Almost identical points will be made in this one as were made in the older piece. Both of the articles that have appeared under this title were inspired by the lies told by the inveterate liars named William Jefferson Blythe Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton. A decade has intervened between the writing of these two articles. The Clintons are still inveterate liars. Barring their conversion to the true Faith, for which we must pray each day, they will be inveterate, shameless, calculating, sociopathic liars ten years from now.

To wit, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-New York) asserted in a prepared speech on Monday of Holy Week, March 17, 2008, that she had come under "sniper fire" while on a tarmac in Tuzla, Bosnia, in 1996. Much has been written about this incontrovertible lie, which Mrs. Clinton had told several times before in the past few months, in the past two weeks since it was proven by means of news footage from the Columbia Broadcasting System that she had walked off of a plane with her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, with great calm and was greeted by school children. There was no sniper fire. There was no mad dash to "safety" as she was walking on the tarmac. The whole thing was a lie from beginning to end. Hillary Clinton Bosnia Trip Exposes by CBS. ou CBS News Video Contradicts Clinton's Story, CBS' Sharyl Attkisson Was On Bosnia Trip - And Got A Warm, Sniper-Free ...

This is nothing new, as we know. Here is a far from exhaustive list, recited in part a few months ago in They Never Take Prisoners, of lies and cover-ups and misfeasance and corruption that have stood out over the years. No one, therefore, should be the least bit surprised about the latest whopper told by Hillary Clinton, who claims that she "misremembered" the Tuzla event:

1. Bill and Hillary Clinton lied in 1992 about Gennifer Flowers. Mrs. Clinton called Flowers's accusations against her husband to be nothing other than "trash for cash," although her husband admitted in their famous 60 Minutes interview with Ed Bradley that he had caused "pain" in their marriage. Hillary Clinton did this repeatedly throughout the White House years, thereby demonstrating that she, the "woman of change," would crush any woman who had been used and/or abused by her husband in order to have her own chance to serve as President of the United States of America.

2. Travelgate and Vince Foster.

3. Filegate.

4. Whitewatergate.

5. Billing records-gate. Does anyone not believe that Mrs. Clinton did not leave the billing records from the Rose Law Firm in the White House reading room?

6. Monicagate, which resulted ultimately in Bill Clinton's copping a plea agreement with Independent Counsel Robert Ray on January 19, 2001, just before he left office. It should also be noted that the Clintons were ruthless in attempting to destroy the reputation of anyone and everyone who sought to criticize them or to investigate them, making Richard Nixon's "Plumbers' Unit" seem like a band of amateurs. Take a look at a very partial list of some of the names of Clinton "enemies" who were "exposed" as having their own personal problems during the midst of Monicagate: United States Representatives Bob Barr, Henry Hyde, Dan Burton, and Bob Livingston. Ah, yes, the compassionate Clintons? Just don't get in their way. They take no prisoners.

7. Serbiagate: the bombardment of the Serbs to favor the Kosovo Mohammedans in the former Yugoslavia, a bombardment that Clinton directed despite the fact that he had no authorization from the Congress of the United States of America to do so. Thousands of innocent Serbians were killed as a result of the bombing, conducted under the auspices of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (N.A.T.O.)

8. Chinagate. How many nefarious arms merchants and drug dealers and other low life figures slept in the Lincoln Bedroom of the White House and/or had "coffees" with the Clintons in the 1996 election cycle?

9. Bill Clinton claimed in 1995 that Congressional Republicans wanted to "cut spending" on various domestic entitlement programs, deliberately misrepresenting the truth that his hapless adversaries, whom he could not have conjured up more perfectly than if he had asked Barbara Eden of I Dream of Jeannie to have done so for him ("Jeannie, I want a group of opponents who will be so hapless and so spineless that they will surrender to me the moment I begin to lie about them:"), wanted to cut the projected rate of growth in Federal spending on such programs. Actual spending was going to increase no matter whose budget program, Clinton's or the Republicans', wound up being enacted. Clinton represented the Republican plan as a "cut" in actual spending when it was simply a slower rate of increase in spending that the one he was proposing. In other words, Bill Clinton just out-and-out lied.

10.Bill Clinton said in a radio address on June 8, 1996, that "I have vivid and painful memories of black churches being burned in my own state when I was a child." No such burnings took place during his childhood.

11. Hillary Clinton has claimed that her parents named her after the man who conquered Mount Everest on May 29, 1953, the late Edmund Hillary. Mrs. Clinton's parents were quite prophetic. She was born on October 26, 1947. 

Anyone who does not know that the Clintons are inveterate, pathological liars will never be convinced of this simple fact.

More to the point, however, is the simple truth that the entire philosophical framework of the modern civil state, including the United States of America, is based on lies. Although these lies have been enumerated on this site only slightly more frequently than the lies told by the Clintons, it is perhaps most useful on the transferred Feast of the Annunciation of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to do so once again. (From A System Based on Lies Produces Liars, March 31, 2008.)

Not be outdone in lies, of course, was the man who succeeded Clinton as President of the United States of America, George Walker “Dubya” Bush, who—along with Vice President Richard Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and Secretary of State Colin Powell—told one lie after another to try to convince the American people to rally behind his administration’s plan to invade and occupy a sovereign nation, Iraq, that posed no threat whatsoever to the legitimate national security interests of the United States of America:

1) Saddam Hussein had no "weapons of mass destruction." He destroyed his stockpile of biological weapons in the 1990s. The biological agents that he used on the Kurds in 1991 were sold to him by the United States of America in 1985 to be used in the then ongoing Iran-Iraq War. Hussein, who was certainly a brutal thug responsible for the deaths of about 1.5 million Iraqis between 1969 and 2003 (about the same number of innocent human beings put to death under cover of the civil law by means of surgical abortions each year) simply stockpiled those weapons to be used in his own country at a later date. Who was the American envoy who arranged for the sale of these biological and chemical weapons of mass destruction. Look for yourselves:

Shaking Hands: Saddam Hussein greets Donald Rumsfeld, then special envoy of President Ronald Reagan, in Baghdad on December 20, 1983.  (National Security Archive, There is an interesting, fact-based article, replete with links to national security documents, available at: Shaking Hands with Saddam Hussein.)

As noted just above, Hussein stockpiled these weapons sold to him by the United Sates of America, choosing not to use them in the war against Iran, which did not end until 1988, and used them instead on the Kurds in northern Iraq following the conclusion of the Persian Gulf War in 1991, a war that was launched to expel Iraq's forces from a country, Kuwait, which Hussein believed that American Ambassador April Glaspie on July 25, 1990, had signaled to him was not of significant enough interest for the United States of America to do anything other than express a verbal condemnation in its behalf should he, Hussein, decide to reclaim Iraqi land that was taken away from it following the end of World War I.

2) The Iraqi government had no involvement in the September 11, 2001, attacks upon the World Trade Center towers in the City of New York, New York, and upon the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia.

3) The Iraqi government had no involvement with Osama bin Laden or al-Qaeda. Saddam Hussein was a thug who governed Iraq in the style of a Mafioso don. Mobsters protect their territories very carefully. Saddam Hussein, a very secular and non-observant Mohammedan and a xenophobe who had no use for foreigners of any type (save for the Soviets when it served his purposes to have them train his military forces), never wanted a rival gang of mobsters to enter and possibly destabilize his country.

4) According to then President Bush, in an address given on October 7, 2002, Saddam Hussein's Iraq had a "growing fleet of manned and unmanned aerial vehicles that could be used to disperse chemical or biological weapons across broad areas" (see George W. Bush: Address to the Nation on Iraq From Cincinnati, Ohio). This last point was particularly laughable. Growing fleet? How about two unmanned aerial vehicles? That's right, two. Their range? About 650 miles, which means that these unmanned aerial vehicles would had to have been transported by the nonexistent Iraqi navy undetected by satellite reconnaissance in order to get close enough to the United States to drop the nonexistent "weapons of mass destruction" that Saddam Hussein was alleged to have possessed or was in the "process" of developing. Absolute absurdity designed to frighten the American public and win international support for his scheme of "regime change" to aid the not-so-"democratic" State of Israel and American corporate interests.

5) Saddam Hussein was not attempting to purchase enriched uranium from the country of Niger to foment another attack on the United States of America, contrary to the claim made by President George Walker Bush in his State of the Union Address on January 28, 2003: 

The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.

Our intelligence sources tell us that he has attempted to purchase high-strength aluminum tubes suitable for nuclear weapons production.

Saddam Hussein has not credibly explained these activities. He clearly has much to hide.

The dictator of Iraq is not disarming. To the contrary, he is deceiving. (President Bush's 2003 State of the Union Address.) 

No, it was George Walker Bush and his neoconservative war hawks who were deceiving the world. Saddam Hussein, caught up in his delusional world of paranoia and thuggery, was content to rattle the cages of the United States of America. He had no credible means to attack this country whatsoever.

The unjust, immoral, unconstitutional invasion of the sovereign country of Iraq to impose upon its people the "American way" so as to make the Middle East safe for Israel has also devastated Iraq's population of Christians, including Chaldean Rite Catholics. Mohammedan violence against Catholics and members of various Orthodox sects has been relentless in the past seven years. As bad as Saddam Hussein was, and he was a brutal thug, to be sure, he was a clever politician who wanted to have the support of as many groups as possible in Iraq, which is why he protected the small Christian minority in that country. One of the consequences of Hussein's overthrow has been to make Christians "fair game" for Mohammedan murderers, who have long desired to kill off or to drive into exile the "infidels."  (See More Christians Killed in IraqChaldean bishop says U.S. accountable for death of Archbishop of Mosul, and Go Tell Iraq's Catholics--and American Babies--About The "Lesser of Two Evils".)

Thus it is that there was a great deal of disinformation that led up to the Persian Gulf War. It has always been thus with governments of the United States of America. Always.

Well, the destructive policies pursued by “Bush 41” helped to elect the inveterate liar William Jefferson Blythe Clinton, thereby giving Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton an opportunity to establish herself in the pantheon of American political prevaricators en route to cementing her legacy as an architect of deception about Benghazigate, her homebrewed computer server to avoid Freedom of Information Act requests about Benghazi and her activities for the Clinton Foundation, and the crowning act of deceptiveness that gave us the Russian Collusion fairy tale, and the destructive policies pursued by “Bush 43” gave us the “transformative” policies of Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, whose entire “autobiography,” Dreams of My Father, was replete with fables of his own:

David Maraniss’s new biography of Barack Obama is the first sustained challenge to Obama’s control over his own story, a firm and occasionally brutal debunking of Obama’s bestselling 1995 memoir, Dreams from My Father.

Maraniss’s Barack Obama: The Story punctures two sets of falsehoods: The family tales Obama passed on, unknowing; and the stories Obama made up. The 672-page book closes before Obama enters law school, and Maraniss has promised another volume, but by its conclusion I counted 38 instances in which the biographer convincingly disputes significant elements of Obama’s own story of his life and his family history.

The two strands of falsehood run together, in that they often serve the same narrative goal: To tell a familiar, simple, and ultimately optimistic story about race and identity in the 20th Century. The false notes in Obama’s family lore include his mother’s claimed experience of racism in Kansas, and incidents of colonial brutality toward his Kenyan grandfather and Indonesian step-grandfather. Obama’s deliberate distortions more clearly serve a single narrative: Race. Obama presents himself through the book as “blacker and more disaffected” than he really was, Maraniss writes, and the narrative “accentuates characters drawn from black acquaintances who played lesser roles his real life but could be used to advance a line of thought, while leaving out or distorting the actions of friends who happened to be white.”

That the core narrative of Dreams could have survived this long into Obama’s public life is the product in part of an inadvertent conspiracy between the president and his enemies. His memoir evokes an angry, misspent youth; a deep and lifelong obsession with race; foreign and strongly Muslim heritage; and roots in the 20th Century’s self-consciously leftist anti-colonial struggle. Obama’s conservative critics have, since the beginnings of his time on the national scene, taken the self-portrait at face value, and sought to deepen it to portray him as a leftist and a foreigner.

Reporters who have sought to chase some of the memoir’s tantalizing yarns have, however, long suspected that Obama might not be as interesting as his fictional doppelganger. “Mr. Obama’s account of his younger self and drugs…significantly differs from the recollections of others who do not recall his drug use,” the New York Times’s Serge Kovaleski reported dryly in February of 2008, speculating that Obama had “added some writerly touches in his memoir to make the challenges he overcame seem more dramatic.” (In one of the stranger entries in the annals of political spin, Obama’s spokesman defended his boss’s claim to have sampled cocaine, calling the book “candid.”)

Maraniss’s deep and entertaining biography will serve as a corrective both to Obama’s mythmaking and his enemies’. Maraniss finds that Obama’s young life was basically conventional, his personal struggles prosaic and later exaggerated. He finds that race, central to Obama’s later thought and included in the subtitle of his memoir, wasn’t a central factor in his Hawaii youth or the existential struggles of his young adulthood. And he concludes that attempts, which Obama encouraged in his memoir, to view him through the prism of race “can lead to a misinterpretation” of the sense of “outsiderness” that Maraniss puts at the core of Obama’s identity and ambition. (The Real Story Of Barack Obama.)

Obama/Soetoro got away with almost everything he desired to do. His hapless opponents in the organized crime family of the naturalist “right” huffed and puffed, but Obama/Soetoro and his crew of lawbreakers destroyed evidence, stonewalled, committed perjury, and told numerous half-truths to get away with one crime after another.

That is, Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro sought to engage in “transformative” policy-making, and he did so  with an iron will as he issued unconstitutional and/or illegal executive orders and presidential directives, chose not to enforce the nation’s just immigration laws, presiding over the doubling of the national debt (see National Debt Grows By Nine Billion Dollars Under Obama), conspired with Congressional Democrats to pass the so-called Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act by means of the “reconciliation” process, thereby circumventing both the filibuster rules of the United States Senate and, more importantly, the constitutional requirement (found in Section 8 of Article I) that all bills raising revenue originate in the United States House of Representatives, used the Internal Revenue Service as a means to bludgeon political opponents with tax audits and to harass “conservative” groups applying for tax-exempt status, presided over an administration that misused the Federal government’s regulatory powers, and covered-up such major scandals as the Fast and Furious gun-running scheme, Benghazi, and the Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton’s e-mail server. Mind you, this is only a partial listing of the Caesar Obamus’s successes. A very comprehensive listing of what any reasonable human being would call scandalous violations of the Constitution—but are viewed as “successes” by Obama/Soetoro and his apologists—can be found at A Complete Guide to Obama's Scandals, Gaffes, and Power Grabs.

Obama/Soetoro’s election in 2008, which was, as noted before, made possible by the abysmal policies of President George Walker Bush just as William Jefferson Blythe Clinton’s election in 1992 had been possible by the deceptions of President George Herbert Walker Bush (whose selection as Ronald Reagan’s vice presidential nominee in 1980—see Ricard V. Allen on George Herbert Walker Bush as the Accidental Vice President, brought a known plagiarist and fabulist who had torpedoed Reagan’s nomination of Judge Robert H. Bork to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in 1987 to the vice presidency, which he thereupon used as a platform not only for his epic demagoguery but also as the means to enrich himself and the entire Biden Family Crime Syndicate in the process: 

President Barack Obama famously warned fellow Democrats  in 2020, “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to  [mess] things up.”

The warning was ignored by many as an almost brotherly reference to Biden’s habit of making false claims (like being arrested when seeking to see Nelson Mandela) or his continual verbal gaffes.

Biden has always had a certain penchant for bragging, whether it’s claiming a dead man told him he reached a million miles on Amtrak, being a cross-country trucker or fighting off some “bad dude” named Corn Pop.

But one of those bravado moments may have revealed more than vanity.

Ironically, it’s the one controversial story that appears entirely true.

In a 2018 interview at the Council on Foreign Relations, Biden bragged that he unilaterally withheld a billion dollars in US aid from the Ukrainians to force them to fire prosecutor general Viktor Shokin.

The Ukrainians balked, but Biden gave them an ultimatum: “I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ Well, son of a bitch. He got fired.”

embarrassing for an ally.

The Ukrainians were Joe’s new Corn Pop, and he recounted how he stared them down in a “High Noon” diplomatic moment.

A State Department memo is shedding disturbing light on that account and shredding aspects of Biden’s justification for the action.

Indeed, the ultimatum may have been the quid in a quid pro quo agreement as part of the Biden influence-peddling scandal.

The premise of the story is that Biden took this extraordinary stand because there was little hope for the anti-corruption efforts in Ukraine if Shokin remained prosecutor.

That is now questionable.

The Oct. 1, 2015, memo summarizes the recommendation of the Interagency Policy Committee that was handling the anti-corruption efforts in Ukraine: “Ukraine has made sufficient progress on its reform agenda to justify a third guarantee.”

One senior official even complimented Shokin on his progress in fighting corruption.

So Biden was told to deliver on the federal aid but elected to unilaterally demand Shokin be fired.

When the firing occurred, Shokin’s office was investigating Burisma Holdings, an energy firm that paid Hunter Biden a huge amount of money.

The State Department had identified it as a corrupt company engaged in bribery.

Recent testimony from Devon Archer, a business associate of Hunter Biden, revealed that Burisma executives made the removal of Shokin a top priority and raised it with Hunter.

He described how the need to neutralize Shokin was raised with Hunter and how “a call to Washington” was made in response.

President Biden has insisted, “I did nothing wrong. I carried out the policy of the United States government in rooting out corruption in Ukraine. And that’s what we should be focusing on.”

Indeed, that will now be the focus, including the close correlation of the money and demands going to Hunter and the actions of his father.

There is evidence the State Department was alarmed by Hunter’s work and its impact on anti-corruption efforts.

While Joe was portraying his work as fighting corruption, some officials were warning the Bidens could be part of the problem, not the solution, in Ukraine.

Leading diplomat George Kent wrote then-Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, “The real issue to my mind was that someone in Washington needed to engage VP Biden quietly and say that his son Hunter’s presence on the Burisma board undercut the anti-corruption message the VP and we were advancing in Ukraine b/c Ukrainians heard one message from us and then saw another set of behavior with the family association with a known corrupt figure whose company was known for not playing by the rules.”

As part of the first impeachment of Donald Trump, Democrats largely dismissed earlier accounts of these misgivings and portrayed Shokin as a thoroughly corrupt prosecutor perpetuating corruption.

Biden’s Ukrainian Corn Pop story was celebrated as a gutsy moment of leadership.

During the impeachment, Kent said Biden’s demand was consistent with US policy.

Yet we now know the State Department had found progress was being made on corruption and Shokin was praised in private correspondence.

The demand for the replacement of the equivalent of the attorney general in another country is an extraordinary move.

We give massive amounts of money to countries with rampant corruption and authoritarian records.

But Biden decided Shokin had to go and used public money to make that happen.

The memo also highlights the flaws in the Trump impeachment.

When I testified before the House Judiciary Committee at the only impeachment hearing, I told the committee it should not depart from history and proceed to an impeachment without fact witnesses on the grounds for impeachment.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Adam Schiff and others refused.

It now seems there was material evidence that would have been used at the impeachment trial.

Trump was alleging there was a conflict of interest with the Bidens, and the evidence could have challenged Biden’s account and established his son’s interest in the Shokin firing.

I still do not believe Trump should have raised the matter in that call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

This evidence may not have made a difference to some senators, but it demonstrates why impeachments should proceed after fact hearings.

Instead, in the second impeachment, the Democrats went one better.

They used what I called a “snap impeachment” without even a hearing on the impeachment standards and articles.

The House could now have little choice but to hold the very hearings the Democrats blocked during the earlier impeachment — with a different president under constitutional scrutiny. (Joe Biden's Ukraine defense falls apart.)

Remember when CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, Washington Post and Chicago Tribune—among other liberal media outlets–gathered together and in one loud angry voice decided to tell President Joe Biden to stop lying?


Funny, but I don’t remember it either. Not like I remember their unctuous slogans about how they’re the saviors of American democracy even as they spit on it and warn Americans against committing a “Thought Crime”, and protect political “leaders” who’d sell us out to foreign adversaries like China.

National media has been too busy kissing Joe’s behind to call out his many lies. They protect him from reality until even they must admit that the old man is wandering around with no clothes, the same way that Chicago media kissed Daley’s behind to protect him from the reality that he and the Illinois Democrats were spending bankrupt Chicago and bankrupt Illinois into oblivion.

Reality is tough. It bites those who can’t bite back.

But the other day there was China Joe commiserating with survivors of the Maui wildfires mourning the untold loss of lives and property destroyed by the wildfires in Hawaii. An Obama connected bureaucrat who strongly believes in “water equity” was behind the delay of hours and hours to release water to fight the fires. The people died from idiocy, and politics. And to make it worse, the survivors were lied to by Biden. CNN declared him to be “empathizer in chief.”

Biden couldn’t be bothered to visit Maui for days, until finally he cut short one of his vacations to show up on Maui. And in true China Joe fashion, like the old man at the end of the bar in the neighborhood tavern bragging about his exploits that never happened, Joe made the wildfires all about himself.

Not the people who suffered. But himself. He lied and kept on lying, as is his way.

On Maui after visiting the fire ravaged lands, the president took the opportunity to emote, to ‘connect,’ and like so many of his stories, it was all lies.

“I don’t want to compare difficulties, but we have a little sense, Jill and I, of what it was like to lose a home,” said the president. “Years ago, now, 15 years, I was in Washington doing Meet the Press. It was a sunny Sunday. Lightning struck at home on a little lake outside the home — not a lake, a big pond. It hit the wire and came up underneath our home, into the air condition ducts. To make a long story short, I almost lost my wife, my ’67 Corvette, and my cat.”

He did no such thing. He did not “almost” lose his wife, life and his car and cat. The so called “blaze” at the Biden home (and who paid for it anyway) was put out in about 20 minutes by the local fire department. It was not serious.

But consider. Joe? You almost lost your Corvette and your cat? That means you almost lost the top-secret records you held illegally, didn’t you sir? The records you kept illegally in your garage?

Oh my. A president almost lost his old man car.

Of course, he wouldn’t do this if the media wouldn’t let him off the hook for his lies, which the left-wing corporate media has been doing for years now. The same media that peeled Presidents George Bush and Donald Trump and canonized the sainted Barack Obama for everything have forgiven China Joe for all his sins.

They forgave Biden for the lie about the “drunken” truck driver that hit his family. (The driver was not drunk). And graduating at the top of his class (another lie) and the whopper about being arrested while trying to see Nelson Mandela. And the lies about his sons Beau and Hunter. And the one about how he drove an 18-wheeler. He didn’t.

And it wasn’t only the lie about Mandela—it continued in many forms.  From his epic battles with the notorious neighborhood bully “Corn Pop,” to his epic claim he was “raised in the Puerto Rican community.”

Can’t wait to hear how old Joe taught George Chakiris how to knife-fight for the dramatic scene in “West Side Story” and how he wrote the song “I Want to Live in America” while teaching Rita Moreno to dance.

But now as the walls close in on Biden for taking millions upon millions of dollars from China, Ukraine and other snaky foreign sources, Joe’s media friends are beginning to edge away.

And now Republicans are falling over themselves in the hopes of getting to Joe Biden before all the wheels come off his bus and the Democrats force him into retirement or into a straight jacket with his very own presidential drool cup.

As CNN’s Jake Tapper said, former President Donald Trump was right that first son Hunter Biden picked up a fortune from China.

“I mean, Trump was right. I mean, he did make a fortune from China, and Joe Biden was wrong. I don’t know that he was lying about it. He might not have been told by Hunter. But this blind spot is a problem.”

His blind spot Jake?

What about yours? Take the beam from your own eye, putz.

The Democrat Washington Media Complex, of which Tapper is a charter member, has been covering for Joe Biden for years and years. Otherwise, how could an infamous plagiarist continue on in politics for half a century?

The Democrat Washington Media Complex, of which Tapper is a charter member, has been covering for Joe Biden for years and years. Otherwise, how could an infamous plagiarist continue on in politics for half a century?

Left wing corporate media covered for Biden Inc. They fronted Joe’s lie that Hunter Biden’s laptop from hell was Russian disinformation, though it was not. The media helped him ride that one through the election. What we know now is that Biden Inc. picked up reported tens of millions of dollars in bribes from China, Ukraine, etc.

Joe Biden lied about Hunter. We all know it now. Even the fools of CNN and MSNBC must admit it.

He lied that the laptop was Russian disinformation. He lied when insisting he knew nothing about Hunter’s business deals. He lied when it was finally revealed that Hunter had put him on the phone with sleazy clients at least 20 times, according to witness testimony before Congress.

The Democrats protected him and threatened to imprison those who oppose them politically.

And so, the Delaware Way becomes the Chicago Way becomes the American Way. And now the Democrat Media Complex gets ready to jump ship, like rats. What will they do if they can no longer control the Biden decay?

They’ll call on Michelle Obama, kneel before her, put their foreheads to the ground as she saunters right into the White House.

And everyone gets paid, except of course, taxpayers.

Now you see media edging away from Joe, not completely, but enough. They know what’s going on. They know he’s ill. And they don’t want it to splash up on them. But too late.

What kind of man lies about a little kitchen fire to impress real victims who have lost their children and everything else?

A man who has been taught that his lies are just fine.

What kind of a man lies like this, who uses pseudonyms to do business, who needs shell companies to do business and keep it secret from the people, even while trumpeting himself as a transparent man?

My late father-in-law Donald Joseph Castella didn’t use shell companies or aliases. And my late father, Spyros John Kass never used aliases or shell companies either.

My father was a butcher and worked hard all his life on his feet. My father-in-law was a window washer and built his family their house in Arlington Heights with his own two hands. They fell asleep in their chairs after work. They fought in World War II against the forces of darkness.

My father was shot in the face in Albania. My father-in-law was wounded after the invasion of Normandy, and later during the Battle of the Bulge.

They loved America. They didn’t use shell companies or fake names. They didn’t have big-shot reporters forgiving and cleansing their sins. They worked themselves to death, they played by the rules, they couldn’t miss a day of work because they had bills to pay, and they didn’t lie.

They didn’t have networks and politicians rushing up to give them a break. They didn’t get breaks.

And they weren’t named Biden. (Will Joe Biden Ever Stop Lying?)

So many Americans have been inured to the endemic corruption within the ranks of the two major organized crime families of naturalism that very few people, distracted as they are by the bread of circuses of sports and entertainment, are even aware of the depths to which the lies told by pathological liars have perverted every aspect of public life and of the entirety of the administration of justice.

The Biden administration has sought to suppress all political dissent, legitimatize censorship in the name of “defending democracy,” denounced factual information as “disinformation,” labeled parents who have the bad judgment to entrust their children to the concentration camps known as public schools as “domestic terrorists, used the discredited Christophobic Southern Poverty Law Center’s “radical hate group list” to try to “mitigate” the “threat” posed by traditionally-minded Catholics (see    ), claimed that it was impossible to find out who left a package of cocaine within an area of the White House that is not open to the public, and has used the Ministry of Injustice to protect Sonny Corleone (aka Hunter Biden) as the United States Attorney for the District of Delaware, David Weiss, only reluctantly scuttled a plan to let Sonny walk scot-free of any charges until two Internal Revenue Service whistleblowers forced him to concoct a phony plea deal that was rejected by United States District Judge Maryellen Noreika on July 26, 2023:

Hunter Biden made big money abroad by dropping the name of his powerful father, and the same tactic seems to have nearly helped him to evade tax and gun charges. Correspondence between federal prosecuto After news reports last fall suggested federal agents had enough evidence to prosecute, Mr. Biden’s lawyer, Chris Clark, decided to bring up the big guy. “President Biden now unquestionably would be a fact witness for the defense in any criminal trial,” he wrote to David Weiss, the U.S. attorney for Delaware, according to Politico. “This of all cases justifies neither the spectacle of a sitting President testifying at a criminal trial nor the potential for a resulting Constitutional crisis.”

This is clarifying about the kind of pressure that Mr. Weiss was under not to bring a serious case. That isn’t all: Through last fall and this spring, Politico adds, Mr. Clark “sought meetings with people at the highest levels of the Justice Department,” including “the head of the Criminal Division, the head of the Tax Division, the Office of Legal Counsel, the Office of the Solicitor General, Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco and the attorney general himself.”

Most such entreaties failed, but Mr. Clark finally secured an April 26 meeting with Mr. Weiss and Associate Deputy Attorney General Bradley Weinsheimer. “Please advise,” Mr. Clark had written to Mr. Weinsheimer, “whether you would be the appropriate person to hear our client’s appeal, in the event that the U.S. Attorney’s Office decides to charge Mr. Biden.”

Emails the next month show Mr. Biden’s attorneys working with Mr. Weiss’s staff on a deal that would have required no guilty plea by Hunter. That appears to have changed days after IRS agent Gary Shapley went public saying the investigation into Mr. Biden had been hampered by politics. Then Mr. Biden agreed to plead guilty to tax misdemeanors, but with a broad provision for future immunity that eventually fell apart under questioning by the judge.

Mr. Weiss is still on the case, now as a special counsel, but how does Attorney General Merrick Garland possibly think that the public can trust his judgment after this fiasco?

Last week, when President Biden announced his trip to Maui, The Post asked: How much do you want to bet he will act inappropriately to family members and try to make it all about himself?

If there was anyone dumb enough to take that bet, it’s time to pay up.

Even by Joe’s low standards, this trip was a debacle. Our tone-deaf commander-in-chief takes off from the Lake Tahoe home of a Democratic donor, does a fly-by of the island, then turns around to go back on vacation. Mission accomplished!

While on the ground, Biden points at some burned-out buildings, stiffly shakes hands with some first responders, and puts on a facial expression that’s meant to convey “serious” when it more resembles rigor mortis.

The Biden team set up a presidential lectern in the middle of the rubble, which is bad enough, but they also brought along a tiny little table to set his water on. Gotta make sure Joe Antoinette Biden doesn’t get thirsty. Guess we should be grateful they didn’t bring a teleprompter, which is why he stared at his speech the entire time.

Then Biden decided the best way to show Hawaii that he cares is to lie. Again. He recounted the harrowing moment firefighters had to “run into the flames” of his home to save his wife, Jill.

This. Never. Happened. For years, Biden has turned a minor kitchen blaze into the Great Chicago Fire, even after the Delaware department he praises says it was “insignificant.”

The press tries to gaslight us by saying that Biden recounting this fire, or insisting his son Beau died in Iraq when he really died of cancer, resonates with victims. “Biden … has long been seen as uniquely adept at leading with empathy amid tragedies like this one,” the Washington Post claimed this week.

But this isn’t empathy. This is ego. And it’s insulting.

A myth has been constructed around Joe Biden: He’s the great negotiator. He’s the empathizer-in-chief. He’s Mr. Even-Keeled. None of these things are true. They probably never were true. We can see it with our own eyes. (Joe Antoinette Biden lies to survivors, makes it all about himself in Hawaii.)

WASHINGTON — IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley said Tuesday that special counsel David Weiss’ credibility is “non-existent” after reporting over the weekend indicated that Weiss nearly let first son Hunter Biden off without any charges before insisting on a probation-only plea deal after Shapley stepped forward.

“His credibility is just non-existent at this point. He played his cards in this investigation,” Shapley told Fox News host Martha MacCallum.

Weiss, the longtime Delaware US attorney, was elevated by Attorney General Merrick Garland to be special counsel on Aug. 11, expanding his investigative and charging powers after the 53-year-old first son’s plea deal to tax and gun charges fell apart under scrutiny by a federal judge.

The New York Times reported Saturday that Weiss said earlier this year that he did not want to bring any charges against President Biden’s son, before pivoting to what critics called a “sweetheart” deal after Shapley in April publicly alleged a cover-up in the case.

“[Weiss] decided what was going to be charged. He was, at one point, based on the information released this weekend, was at one point not even going to charge him — and he was part of the investigation that allowed the investigative steps not to occur,” Shapley said.

“The release this weekend was really shocking,” he added.

For more than three years, Shapley led a 13-person team that investigated Hunter Biden’s foreign income from countries such as China and Ukraine during and immediately after his father’s vice presidency.

A subordinate, IRS special agent Joseph Ziegler, opened the case in 2018, worked on it for five years, and corroborated many of Shapley’s claims during congressional testimony last month.

The entire IRS team was removed from the Hunter Biden case on May 15 in alleged retribution for the whistleblowing by Shapley and Ziegler — after collecting evidence that Hunter failed to pay at least $2.2 million in tax on $8.3 million in largely foreign-sourced income earned between 2014 and 2019.

“I would be full onboard to assist moving forward, whether it was with Mr. Weiss or with a different special counsel, and I don’t know really how it moves forward without it,” Shapley told McCallum.

Congressional Republicans denounced Weiss’ appointment as part of a continuing cover-up and noted his conduct was a central focus of the whistleblowers.

Critics point to reports that Weiss worked with Hunter’s late brother Beau and that his office is full of prosecutors with links to the Bidens — and note that Justice Department special counsel regulations call for the appointees to be selected from outside the department to ensure their independence.

Skeptics also note surprising personal baggage associated with Weiss, whose father was a corrupt IRS agent imprisoned for taking bribes.

The new special counsel is a central figure in claims presented to Congress by Shapley and Ziegler.

Shapley said that Weiss contradicted Garland’s under-oath testimony that Weiss had “full authority … to bring cases in other jurisdictions if he feels it’s necessary.”

At an Oct. 7, 2022, meeting, Weiss allegedly told Shapley and six other FBI and IRS officials that he actually didn’t have that authority.

Weiss and Garland have publicly denied Shapley’s account, though an email from another IRS official, Special Agent in Charge Darrell Waldon, affirmed the accuracy of Shapley’s emailed notes from the meeting. The House Judiciary Committee on Monday issued subpoenas to four alleged witnesses in the hope of setting the record straight.

Shapley and Ziegler said that Weiss’ office indicated that it sought to bring federal charges against Hunter Biden in Los Angeles and Washington, DC, but was blocked by President Biden’s appointed US attorneys — appearing to confirm that Weiss lacked the power that Garland told Congress he had.

The whistleblowers said prosecutors in Weiss’ office also prevented them from investigating President Biden’s alleged role in his son’s foreign ventures, despite communications that directly implicated the president — such as a threatening July 30, 2017, WhatsApp message that Shapley gave to Congress in which Hunter Biden wrote to a Chinese government-linked business associate that he was “sitting here with my father” and warned of consequences if a deal was aborted.

Within 10 days of that text message, $5.1 million flowed from CEFC China Energy to Biden-linked bank accounts. As part of the same venture, Joe Biden, described as the “big guy,” was penciled in for a 10% cut from the deal with CEFC, according to a May 2017 email retrieved from Hunter’s laptop.

Shapley, backed up by testimony from a recently retired FBI agent who worked on the case, accused Weiss’ office of giving Hunter Biden’s legal team advance knowledge of a planned interview attempt in late 2020, scuttling the plan after the office also allegedly gave a heads up to Hunter’s lawyers about plans to search a northern Virginia storage unit.

The tax agents said that Weiss’ office didn’t give them full access to files from Hunter’s abandoned laptop, blocked them from interviewing other Biden family members and vetoed an attempt to get a search warrant for a guest house on Joe Biden’s Wilmington, Del. property.

Shapley said that the prosecutors in Delaware also failed to inform the IRS team that a paid FBI informant provided a tipoff that Mykola Zlochevsky, the owner of natural gas company Burisma Holdings, which paid Hunter up to $1 million per year beginning in 2014, said in 2016 that he was “coerced” into paying $10 million in bribes to Joe and Hunter Biden in exchange for the then-vice president’s help getting a prosecutor fired.

Weiss became a special counsel as House Republicans discuss launching an impeachment inquiry into President Biden’s role in his son’s business ventures.

The Delaware prosecutor’s office said this month that Hunter Biden is likely to stand trial after walking away from a plea deal for two misdemeanor tax charges and a gun possession felony that would have been expunged after two years of probation. (David Weiss' credibility 'non-existent' to lead Hunter Biden case, IRS whistleblower says. Also see Joe Biden's got many aliases. The big question is why.­­)

As I have written what seems like a gazillion times before, one must not expect justice from those who are personally unjust, those who believe themselves to be above the eternal laws of God and the just laws of men. While human nature is wounded by Original Sin, thus inclining men to the commission of sins of various types, including sins of manifest injustice against their countries and their fellow men, men once admitted that there existed a guidepost to help them to choose the good and reject the evil, both personally and socially. The triumph of Protestantism and Judeo-Masonry, with which the revolutionaries within the counterfeit church of conciliarism long ago made their “official reconciliation,” has brought to fulfillment Pope Leo XIII’s words in Humanum Genus, April 20, 1884:

But the naturalists go much further; for, having, in the highest things, entered upon a wholly erroneous course, they are carried headlong to extremes, either by reason of the weakness of human nature, or because God inflicts upon them the just punishment of their pride. Hence it happens that they no longer consider as certain and permanent those things which are fully understood by the natural light of reason, such as certainly are -- the existence of God, the immaterial nature of the human soul, and its immortality. The sect of the Freemasons, by a similar course of error, is exposed to these same dangers; for, although in a general way they may profess the existence of God, they themselves are witnesses that they do not all maintain this truth with the full assent of the mind or with a firm conviction. Neither do they conceal that this question about God is the greatest source and cause of discords among them; in fact, it is certain that a considerable contention about this same subject has existed among them very lately. But, indeed, the sect allows great liberty to its votaries, so that to each side is given the right to defend its own opinion, either that there is a God, or that there is none; and those who obstinately contend that there is no God are as easily initiated as those who contend that God exists, though, like the pantheists, they have false notions concerning Him: all which is nothing else than taking away the reality, while retaining some absurd representation of the divine nature.

When this greatest fundamental truth has been overturned or weakened, it follows that those truths, also, which are known by the teaching of nature must begin to fall -- namely, that all things were made by the free will of God the Creator; that the world is governed by Providence; that souls do not die; that to this life of men upon the earth there will succeed another and an everlasting life.

When these truths are done away with, which are as the principles of nature and important for knowledge and for practical use, it is easy to see what will become of both public and private morality. We say nothing of those more heavenly virtues, which no one can exercise or even acquire without a special gift and grace of God; of which necessarily no trace can be found in those who reject as unknown the redemption of mankind, the grace of God, the sacraments, and the happiness to be obtained in heaven. We speak now of the duties which have their origin in natural probity. That God is the Creator of the world and its provident Ruler; that the eternal law commands the natural order to be maintained, and forbids that it be disturbed; that the last end of men is a destiny far above human things and beyond this sojourning upon the earth: these are the sources and these the principles of all justice and morality.

If these be taken away, as the naturalists and Freemasons desire, there will immediately be no knowledge as to what constitutes justice and injustice, or upon what principle morality is founded. And, in truth, the teaching of morality which alone finds favor with the sect of Freemasons, and in which they contend that youth should be instructed, is that which they call "civil," and "independent," and "free," namely, that which does not contain any religious belief. But, how insufficient such teaching is, how wanting in soundness, and how easily moved by every impulse of passion, is sufficiently proved by its sad fruits, which have already begun to appear. For, wherever, by removing Christian education, this teaching has begun more completely to rule, there goodness and integrity of morals have begun quickly to perish, monstrous and shameful opinions have grown up, and the audacity of evil deeds has risen to a high degree. All this is commonly complained of and deplored; and not a few of those who by no means wish to do so are compelled by abundant evidence to give not infrequently the same testimony. (Pope Leo XIII, Humanum Genus, April 20, 1884.)

Yes, there is no “knowledge” of what constitutes justice and injustice in a land that gives full rein to blasphemy and sacrilege, a land where even the adversary himself has “rights” as it is considered to be something akin to a “hate” crime to mention the Holy Name of the Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, which has been banned by United States Department of Defense and its military services from being invoked outside of chaplaincy use.

How can we expect there to be any concept of justice even on the natural level when their nations promote public worship of the devil while mocking Christ the King and persecute believing Catholics with the silent consent of a putative “pope”?

Let it be stipulated that Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., is a pathological liar and a crook who has sold out his country.

Let it be further stipulated that Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., has perfected Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro’s underhanded subterfuge against political adversaries whose right to dissent from the received wisdom du jour must be denied in the name of “saving democracy.” Biden and his band of thugs, thieves, and scoundrels are openly using every lever of the executive, administrative, and judicial powers at their disposal to favor some rioters (Black Lives Matter, Antifa) over others (January 6, 2021, protesters) and to indemnify the guilty (Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton, Hunter Biden) while persecuting and prosecuting political opponents such as former President Donald John Trump, whose imprudence and narcissism are culpable in the eyes of Christ the King but are matters of the Federal criminal code.

Yes, let this all be stipulated.

Nonetheless, however, Joseph Robinette Biden’s chief disqualification from holding public office is not his criminality, his mendacity, or even his mental infirmity. His chief disqualification from holding public office is that he supports the daily slaughter of the innocent preborn by chemical and surgical mean as he uses American taxpayer dollars this genocide of the innocent and while using his Ministry of Justice to prosecute ordinary Americans who are resisting unjust laws to defend the defenseless. 

A verdict is expected, perhaps by today, Monday, August 28, 2023, the Feast of Saint Augustine of Hippo, in the case of the “Garland Nine,” who have been on trial for the past week in a case presided over by a judge who has not only denied the attorneys representing the Red Rose rescuers to explain to the jury that they were trying to prevent the killing of preborn children, denied them the opportunity show a video of a baby-killer’s cold-blooded admission that he would let a baby die if he survived the attempt of his life,  and has gone so far as to rebuke an attorney who tried to correct an abortuary staffer bloody trade was compatible with Catholicism. The same judge also rebuked a religious sister in the courtroom who prayed a Hail Mary as the baby butcher exited after her testimony:

WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – The pro-abortion judge and prosecution in the Washington D.C. FACE Act trial are desperate to keep the jury from seeing video testimony by late-term abortionist Cesare Santangelo, dubbed by pro-lifers the butcher of D.C., who in 2012 said that he would leave a baby exposed to die after birth if the child survived a failed abortion.

The admission was caught on tape by an undercover journalist from Live Action, who made an appointment at the Washington Surgi Clinic in 2013 when 24 weeks’ pregnant. When the woman asked Santangelo what he would do if the baby survived the abortion and whether she would have to take responsibility for the baby, the abortionist said that he would “not help” a child survive but would leave it exposed until it died.

The late-term abortionist also admitted in the video that babies had survived an abortion at his clinic, thereby implying he had also already committed the crime of leaving the baby exposed to die.

As the video states, according to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, “Any child born in the United States including a survivor of a failed abortion attempt is guaranteed the full rights and legal protections of citizenship and entitled to life-saving medical care.”

It was this video that Lauren Handy and other pro-lifers watched, which served to motivate them to take part in the rescue of October 22, 2020, at the Washington-Surgi Clinic and to place themselves in harm’s way to protect the unborn babies that would be brought to the clinic to be brutally murdered that day.

o damning is this evidence against the case of the prosecution, Santangelo, and the Washington-Surgi Clinic, that the prosecution moved to strike the video from being entered into evidence, and the judge, in lockstep with her pro-abortion advocates on the prosecution, conceded yesterday in a ruling to keep the video from being shown to the jury and the courtroom.

In fact, the prosecution argued that the material in the video could very likely move the jurors to take a stance on abortion. And this the federal advocates of abortion cannot allow.

The reason the judge claimed for striking the video from evidence was that it was “heavily edited,” was “more prejudicial than probative,” and that it included the word “abortionist,” which she claimed was a “derogatory term.” How the name of a person’s profession is considered derogatory without admitting that the activity of that profession must therefore be shameful defies the logic of an ordinary layman, but perhaps logic is not a standard to which the court is held in this trial.

It is also telling that it was this clinic, run by the abortionist in this video, with whom the FBI established a working relationship. On the morning of October 22, 2020, Santangelo‘s clinic contacted the FBI, which sent an agent to the scene who for months conducted an in-depth surveillance and research against those who participated in the pro-life rescue that morning. The FBI agent who testified in court tried to explain away his unique relationship with the abortion clinic in DC by saying the FBI was trying to establish good relationships and liaisons in the D.C. community. However, he offered no other example of a similar working relationship with any businesses within the District.

This case is just one more instance of the secret-police operation under the Biden administration, in which abortion is protected at all costs, and pro-lifers attacked, hunted down, and brought to trial for defending innocent pre-born Americans.

To the objective observer, it should be clear that neither this trial of these pro-life rescuers nor the justice and legality of the FACE Act can wholly be separated from the justice and morality of abortion, the personhood of the child in the womb, and the innocent blood in which the abortionists of our country, under cover of law, have steeped their hands for many long decades.

In this trial, the suppression within the courtroom of nearly all evidence that directly addresses what abortion is, in its gruesome reality, only serves to show how desperate the Left really is when it comes to the murder of unwanted, unloved, and dehumanized preborn children.

The evidence, however, cannot be wholly kept from the American public. This video and others like it that manifest the willingness of abortionists not only to murder the unborn but to break the law to assure that at all costs, an unwanted child is not allowed into this world. This video, suppressed in this trial by an aggressively pro-abortion judge, must be broadcast far and wide, so that this crime against humanity is exposed and the horrific abortion industry ended in our nation once and for all.   (Prosecutors strike infamous video of late-term abortionist from evidence in DC FACE Act trial .)

(LifeSiteNews) — The judge presiding over the ongoing trial of activists who oppose abortion in Washington, D.C., on Monday rebuked an attorney for attempting to correct an abortion-staffer’s mischaracterization of Catholicism and then admonished a Catholic nun for “intimidation” for praying a Hail Mary.

“It’s a kind of madness,” said Monica Miller, director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, in an interview with LifeSiteNews on Monday near the district courthouse where the trial is being held. The group of activists currently on trial faces over a decade behind bars and other penalties for blocking access to the Washington Surgi-Clinic in downtown Washington, D.C., in a “traditional rescue” in October 2020.

In her comments to LifeSite, Miller recapped some of the most explosive aspects of the trial so far, including the testimony of an abortion staffer called in by prosecutors on Monday who testified about her “Catholic faith” despite assisting with abortions. 

She was allowed to go on and on at least four times in her testimony about how Catholic she was and that her working in the abortion center was consistent with her Catholicism,” Miller said, explaining that the situation created frustration for the defense attorneys, particularly Robert Dunn, a devout Catholic, which evolved into conflict with the judge

“The jury’s hearing, you know, frankly, something that’s completely scandalous. And so Robert Dunn wanted to correct her mischaracterization of Catholicism,” Miller explained. However, after a 15-minute break, the judge opted to admonish Dunn for “unprofessional” behavior for correcting the witness.

“That’s very unprofessional,” Judge Kollar-Kotelly said. “And you’ve talked back to me several times. You’re here as a defense attorney, not a Catholic theologian.”

Shortly thereafter, the judge admonished Catholic nun Sister Deirdre Byrne for praying a Hail Mary as the witness passed by her, accusing the nun of engaging in an “intimidation tactic” by praying.

“The judge has to realize this is a way to try and evangelize, to try and provoke this poor woman’s conscience who flaunts her Catholicism,” Miller said.

In her comments to LifeSite on Monday, the third day of the trial, Miller also weighed in on some of the case’s earlier developments, including the testimony of former rescuer Caroline Davis, who Miller knew first-hand as a young woman “on fire” for the pro-life cause.

As LifeSiteNews previously reported, Davis testified on behalf of the government after taking a plea deal to have a felony charge for a previous rescue reduced to a misdemeanor.

According to Miller, Davis was likely motivated partly through fear of jail time and partly through justifying her rejection of the rescue movement.

“I think someone poisoned her, thinking she has justified in her own heart and in her own mind and in her own conscience that ‘it was a good thing for me to testify against my fellow rescuers, people that I rescued with,’” Miller said.

She added that she believes it’s “unprecedented in the history of the pro-life movement, that another pro-lifer, another Christian, would testify against other Christians and other pro-lifers.”

“It’s kind of a tragedy,” Miller said.

A pro-life hero who has been engaging in pro-life rescues since 1978, Miller told LifeSite that rescues like the one undertaken in October 2020 by a group of activists attempting to stop mothers from killing their preborn children, are about “putting the Gospel into practice.”

She said rescues are an “act of love” and “an act of charity” for the unborn babies and their mothers.

“Abortion is the killing of completely defenseless, innocent human beings,” Miller said. “They deserve someone to at least stand in the way or to make a final plea, as we do in Red Rose Rescues, to defend them, to witness on their behalf.”

While she said that sidewalk counseling is “backbone of pro-life activism,” rescues are about going “that extra step” and showing, “if you’re going to kill this unborn child, you have to deal with me in some way. I’m going to stand up for this baby.” (Third day of Washington DC Face Act proceedings: ‘Catholicism on trial’)

Leaving aside the fact that there is a simpler explanation for the former rescuer’s becoming a witness for the Federal government, namely, fear of spending a lot of time in jail (the same sort of fear that caused many Irish Catholics to “take the soup” in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries), it is important to note that supposedly “impartial” judges are not that at all when they do not realize that they must answer to the Divine Judge, Christ the King, at the moment of their Particular Judgment.

Then again, it is not without precedent for a civil magistrate or a Federal investigator to consider Catholic prayers to be “weapons of intimidation,” especially since the passage of the so-called Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act in 1994 that the Garland Nine stand accused of violating as it was under then Attorney Geneal Janet Reno  that the Violence Against Abortion Providers Conspiracy (VAAPCON) Task Force was created under the authority of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)  to intimidate pro-life Americans, including a woman in Toledo, Ohio, who was visited by FBI agents after she had written to a baby-killer to tell her that she was praying for her conversion, an act that was deemed by the agents to have constituted a "violent threat" against the baby-killer (see FBI's VAAPCON Spies on Pro-Lifers for more information about the Clinton-Reno war against pro-lifers).

The newest incarnation of VAAPCON is the “Reproductive Rights Task Force,” which was created by Chrsitopher Wray’s Federal Bureau of Investigation three weeks after the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the case of Thomas Dobbs, Mississippi State Health Officer v. Jackson Women’s Organization, June 24, 2022, even though it is my contention as one trained at the doctoral level in constitutional and administrative law that the Dobbs decision mooted FACE as there is no longer a Federally guaranteed “right” to kill innocent preborn babies under the cover of the civil law.

Yes, the fact that the Garland Nine have been subjected to a trial under an odious and most probably mooted “law” matters far more than any of the corrupt activities of Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., and even the latter’s persecution in a coordinated matter with officials in Georgia, New York, and possibly Arizona of Donald John Trump, who is busy making money with merchandise to capitalize on his mug shot while the Garland Nine suffer in relative anonymity to be sentenced to the same kind of draconian sentences that have been meted out to those who merely entered the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021, without threatening to commit or actually any acts of violence whatsoever.

We are in the final four days of the month of August, the month of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, devotion to which is inextricably connected with our fidelity to Our Lady’s Most Holy Rosary:

Father, the Most Holy Virgin did not tell me that we are in the last times of the world but she made me understand this for three reasons. The first reason is because she told me that the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Virgin. And a decisive battle is the final battle where one side will be victorious and the other side will suffer defeat. Hence from now on we must choose sides. Either we are for God or we are for the devil. There is no other possibility.

The second reason is because she said to my cousins as well as to myself that God is giving two last remedies to the world. These are the Holy Rosary and Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. These are the last two remedies which signify that there will be no others.

The third reason is because in the plans of Divine Providence, God always before He is about to chastise the world, exhausts all other remedies. Now, when He sees that the world pays no attention whatsoever then, as we say in our imperfect manner of speaking, He offers us with a certain trepidation the last means of salvation, His Most Holy Mother. It is with a certain trepidation because if you despise and repulse this ultimate means we will not have any more forgiveness from Heaven because we will have committed a sin which the Gospel calls the sin against the Holy Spirit. This sin consists of openly rejecting with full knowledge and consent, the salvation which He offers. Let us remember that Jesus Christ is a very good Son and that He does not permit that we offend and despise His Most Holy Mother. We have recorded through many centuries of Church history the obvious testimony which demonstrates, by the terrible chastisements which have befallen those who have attacked the honor of His Most Holy Mother, how Our Lord Jesus Christ has always defended the honor of His Mother." -Sister Lucia dos Santos of Fatima's interview with Father Augustin Fuentes, December 26, 1957 (THE STORY OF OUR LADY OF FATIMA By Brother Ernest, C.S.C.)

We must nevertheless continue to fulfill Our Lady's Fatima Message in our own lives, keeping close to her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart as we hand out her Green Scapular to as many people as we can, being sure to pray "Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death" for each person.

Saint Louis de Montfort, whose True Devotion to Mary should be our guide as to how to love the Mother of God and to serve her as the consecrated slaves through her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, has given us great words of wisdom for these our times: 

Predestinate souls, you who are of God, cut yourselves adrift from those who are damning themselves by their impious lives, laziness and lack of devotion--and, without delay, recite often your Rosary, with faith, with humility, with confidence and with perseverance. . . .

Dear Rosary Confraternity members, if you want to lead a fashionable life and belong to the world--by this I mean if you do not mind falling into mortal sin from time to time and then going to Confession, and if you with to avoid conspicuous sins which the world considers vile and yet at the same time commit "respectable sins"--then, of course, there is no need for you to say many prayers and Rosaries. You only need to do very little be "respectable": a tiny prayer at night and morning, an occasional Rosary which may be given to you for your penance, a few decades of Hail Marys said on your Rosary (but haphazardly and without concentration) when it suits your fancy to say them--this is quite enough. If you did less, you might be branded as a freethinker or a profligate; if you did more, you would be eccentric and a fanatic. But if you want to lead a true Christian life and genuinely want to save your soul and walk in the saints' footsteps and never, never, fall into mortal sin--if you wish to break Satan's traps and divert his flaming darts, you must always pray as Our Lord taught and commanded you to do.

If you really have this wish at heart, then you must at least say your Rosary or the equivalent, every day. I have said "at least" because probably all that you will accomplish through your Rosary will be to avoid mortal sin and to overcome temptation. This is because you are so exposed to the strong current of the world's wickedness by which many a strong soul is swept away; you are in the midst of the thick, clinging darkness which often blinds even the most enlightened souls; you are surrounded by evil spirits who being more experienced than ever and knowing that their time is short are more cunning and more effective in tempting you.

It will indeed be a marvel of grace wrought by the Most Holy Rosary if you manage to keep out of the clutches of the world, the devil and the flesh and avoid mortal sin and gain heaven! If you do not want to believe me, at least learn from your own experience. I should like to ask you, if when you were in the habit of saying no more prayers than people usually say in the world and saying them they way they usually say them, you were able to avid serious faults and sins that were grievous but which seemed nothing much to you in your blindness. Now at last you must wake up, and if you want to live and die without sin, at least mortal sin, pray unceasingly; say your Rosary every day as members always used to do in the early days of the Confraternity. . . .

Even if you suffer from dryness of soul, boredom and interior discouragement, never give up even the least little bit of your Rosary--for this would be a sure sign of pride and faithlessness. On the contrary, like a real champion of Jesus and Mary, you should say your Our Fathers and Hail Marys quite drily if you have to, without seeing, hearing or feeling any consolation whatsoever, and concentrating as best you can on the mysteries. You ought not to look for candy or jam to eat with your daily bread, as children do--but you should even say your Rosary more slowly sometimes when you particularly find it hard to say. Do this to imitate Our Lord more perfectly in His agony in the garden: "Being in agony, he prayed the longer," so that what was said of Our Lord (when He was in His agony of prayer) may be said of you too: He prayed even longer.

Pray with great confidence, with confidence based upon the goodness and infinite generosity of God and upon the promises of Jesus Christ. God is a spring of living water which flows unceasingly into the hearts of those who pray. The Eternal Father yearns for nothing so much as to share the life-giving waters of His grace and mercy with us. He is entreating us: "All you that thirst, come to the waters . . ." This means "Come and drink of My spring through prayer," and when we do not pray to Him He sorrowfully says that we are forsaking Him: "They have forsaken me, the fountain of living water." (Saint Louis de Montfort, The Secret of the Rosary,  pp. 99-101; 103)

Let us not forsake Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ at any time for any reason.

Let us go to Him through the very instrument His Most Blessed Mother gave to Saint Dominic, the Holy Rosary.

Let us take seriously the words that Our Lady told Jacinta and Francisco Marto and Lucia dos Santos in the Cova da Iria to pray many Rosaries and to do penance for the conversion of poor sinners and to save them from Hell. 

We are poor sinners in need of conversion!

We need to be saved from the fires of Hell.

We must use the spiritual weapon that Our Lord has given us through His Most Blessed Mother to defeat the enemies of our salvation at the very gates of our soul this day and every day our lives as we lift high the standard of His Most Holy Cross, which is adorned to every Rosary of His Most Blessed Mother, as we seek to spread devotion to this paramount weapon against all sin and heresy.

The world is in the state that it is because of the infidelity of men. We can beseech Our Lady to help us remain faithful to the point of our dying breaths, especially by beseeching her through her Most Holy Rosary and by making sure that we offer our daily penances and prayers to her Divine Son's Most Sacred Heart through her own Immaculate Heart. She will help us to see the world clearly through the eyes of the true Faith as we exclaim with love the great words that bespeak of our allegiance to her Divine Son, the King of our hearts, the King of the world:

Viva Cristo ReyVivat Christus Rex!
