Children of Terror

by Thomas A. Droleskey

Osama bin Laden has been killed by a commando raid conducted by American forces in Abbottabad, Pakistan, thirty-five miles northwest of Islamabad, without the prior knowledge or permission of Pakistani government officials, who have been, it would appear, winking at the al-Qaeda leader's longtime presence in their nation for many years now. The commando raid was certainly stunning in its planning and execution, although, not to anyone's surprise, we now discover that Barack Hussein Obama's intelligence adviser, John Brennan, did not speak the truth when saying that Osama bin Laden used one of his wives as a human shield or that he was armed when the commandos entered his compound. Disinformation first. Truth later. It matters not whether we have Republican naturalists or Democratic naturalists in office. Disinformation first. Truth later, if ever.

The killing of the man responsible for masterminding the bombings of the U.S.S. Cole on October 22, 2000, in Aden, Yemen, and of the American embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania in 1998 has brought to temporal justice a man who was directly responsible for the deaths of, to use a liberal figure, around 5,000 human beings.

Indirectly, of course, Osama bin Laden is responsible for giving then President George Walker Bush the pretext  to launch military action in Afghanistan on October 7, 2001, that has resulted in the deaths of 1,465 military personnel of the United States of America and about a thousand others from the nations of the "coalition" and thousands of Afghan civilians. Although some will argue that the "global war on terror" launched by Bush the Lesser on October 7, 2001, was "worth it" because we got Osama bin Laden, that those arrested in Afghanistan gave officials of the United States Central Intelligence Authority the clues that they needed to hunt him down and bring him to temporal justice, there were other ways in which intelligence agencies could have gathered the necessary information than the loss of lives and the squandering of billions of dollars, much of which has gone into the pockets of the corrupt Hamid Karzai, the President of Afghanistan, and his friends.

Taking nothing away from the sense of relief felt by the families of those who died on September 11, 2001, now that the mastermind of the attacks that took place in this country on that date has been killed, the celebrations that broke out spontaneously late Sunday night, May 1, 2011, and yesterday, May 2, 2011, on the streets of many American cities were misplaced. Yes, they were understandable. There's enough of the jingoistic American left in my bones to have felt an impulse of satisfaction upon hearing the news of Osama bin Laden's death in a stunning raid conducted after the painstaking piecing together of clues over the course of several years. Sure, the celebrations are understandable.

They are, however, misplaced because we have nothing to celebrate. No nation that has permitted the deaths of over fifty million innocent human beings under cover of the civil law can celebrate the killing of a man responsible for his own brand of terrorism that has resulted in the killings of thousands of people.

The very man who authorized the commando raid and officially announced its results late on Sunday evening, May 1, 2011, Barack Hussein Obama, is himself a sponsor of domestic and global terrorism by means of his open, unrepentant support for the assassination of innocent preborn children by chemical and surgical means under cover of the civil law. He presides over an administration filled with those who support, suborn and promote this domestic and global war of terrorism against the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law that have made this country and its citizens all the more vulnerable to attacks the likes of Mohammedans such as Osama bin Laden and his henchmen, each of whom is committed to fulfilling the blasphemous precepts of the Koran that was kissed by "Blessed" John Paul II and esteemed publicly on two different occasions by Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI.

No country that promotes contraception and abortion and perversity and blasphemy and immodesty and indecency and impurity and lewdness under the name of "civil liberty" and "freedom of conscience" and "religious liberty" has any right to claim moral superiority, less yet to wage a so-called "global war on terror" that winds up terrorizing innocent civilians and bankrupting its treasury, thereby depriving its citizens of legitimate liberties as they are deprived of more and more of their own means of daily temporal sustenance. Yes, nations have a solemn duty to defend their borders and seek to bring to justice malefactors. Granted. Such efforts are worse than worthless when those nations countenance laws and promote a sense of licentiousness that can bring down nothing other than the wrath of God upon them, something that was emphasized in Beyond the Fury of Tornadoes two days ago now.

The "civilized" terrorists who wear white coats and masquerade as physicians and surgeons and nurses and pharmacists and the politicians who enable them are no less hideous in the sight of God than Osama bin Laden and his henchmen.

The "civilized" terrorists who have multiple academic degrees from prestigious universities and law schools and professional schools who provide what they think is "intellectual muscle" to support American terror on Christ the King and the binding precepts of His Sacred Deposit of Faith are no less culpable before God for their horrific work of deceiving souls than those who hold elected office in this country and around the world.

Yet it is that these "civilized" terrorists, shaped by the precepts and the consequences of the Protestant Revolution against the Social Reign of Christ the King and the subsequent rise of the naturalistic forces of Judeo-Masonry, from "civilized" nations whose citizens dress and speak and act the part of barbarians as they live for material pleasures derived from money and an endless array of bread and circuses could never be as successful as they have been enabled by the false ecumenism of the revolutionaries of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, including Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II and Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, men who have their own right brought down the fury of God upon their heads and the world for the many ways they have blasphemed Him as they have committed grave sacrileges and promoted propositions anathematized by Holy Mother Church and condemned by one true pope after another. And it is this spiritual terrorism against the First through Third Commandments that make the state-sponsored terrorism against the Fourth through Tenth

The devil plays upon our emotions, seeking us to "root" for one set of his minions against others, seeking to remove the specks from their eyes while we refuse to even think that we have beams in our own eyes. He is doing so at the present time while me mocks us and as Barack Obama repeats the tired old mantra about the "greatness of our country and the determination of the American people," that "we can do whatever set our mind to":

And tonight, let us think back to the sense of unity that prevailed on 9/11.  I know that it has, at times, frayed.  Yet today’s achievement is a testament to the greatness of our country and the determination of the American people. 

The cause of securing our country is not complete.  But tonight, we are once again reminded that America can do whatever we set our mind to.  That is the story of our history, whether it’s the pursuit of prosperity for our people, or the struggle for equality for all our citizens; our commitment to stand up for our values abroad, and our sacrifices to make the world a safer place. 

Let us remember that we can do these things not just because of wealth or power, but because of who we are:  one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. (Remarks by the President on Osama Bin Laden.)


Where's the "determination" to end baby-killing under cover of the civil law. Ah, there is no "mind" to do so. There is no mind to do so as there is no will to conform our minds to the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law as they have been entrusted by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Our Eternal High Priest and King, exclusively to His Catholic Church for their eternal safekeeping and infallible explication.

One of the greatest lies of the heresy of Americanism is the semi-Pelagian belief that human beings can do whatever they put their minds to doing without having belief in, access to and cooperation with the Sanctifying Graces that have been won for us by the shedding of every single drop of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ and that flow into our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces. We are totally dependent upon God for everything we have and for every good work that desire to accomplish. Or was Our Lord joking when He said the following:

[1] I am the true vine; and my Father is the husbandman. [2] Every branch in me, that beareth not fruit, he will take away: and every one that beareth fruit, he will purge it, that it may bring forth more fruit. [3] Now you are clean by reason of the word, which I have spoken to you. [4] Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in the vine, so neither can you, unless you abide in me. [5] I am the vine: you the branches: he that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing.

[6] If any one abide not in me, he shall be cast forth as a branch, and shall wither, and they shall gather him up, and cast him into the fire, and he burneth. [7] If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask whatever you will, and it shall be done unto you. [8] In this is my Father glorified; that you bring forth very much fruit, and become my disciples. [9] As the Father hath loved me, I also have loved you. Abide in my love. [10] If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love; as I also have kept my Father's commandments, and do abide in his love. (John 15: 1-10.)


The kings and princes of Christendom undertook the defense of their kingdoms by first seeking to root out vice from their own immortal souls, spending time in prayer before Our Lord's Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament and by being deeply, humbly devoted to and reliant upon the Mother of God, especially by means of her Most Holy Rosary, the instrument by which King John Sobieski of Poland defeated the Turks in the Battle of the Gates of Vienna on September 12, 1683, nearly one hundred twelve years after Pope Saint Pius V implored all of Christendom to use this spiritual weapon as the combined Christian fleets defeated the Mohammedan forces that outnumbered them vastly in the Battle of Lepanto on October 7, 1571. There is no other foundation for authentic diplomacy or military action other than that undertaken by men who seek first the Kingdom of God and who desire to save their immortal souls as members of the Catholic Church by persisting until their dying breaths in a state of Sanctifying Grace.

We must do the same in our own lives in our daily warfare against the world, the flesh and the devil.

For, you see, each of us is a child of terror in that our sins imposed unspeakable terror and horror on Our Lord and His Most Blessed Mother during His Passion and Death. They impose terror upon others and the world-at-large. This is why we must be about the business of making reparation for our sins by practicing True Devotion to Mary as taught by Saint Louis de Montfort as seek to fulfill Our Lady's Fatima Message in our own daily lives.

Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., provided us with a reflection on the life of Saint Athanasius, whose feast was commemorated yesterday on the transferred feast day of Saints Philip and James, that should inspire us to reject the revolutionaries of Modernity and Modernism just as Saint Athanasius reject the Arians, making no compromise in the slightest to those who are enemies of Christ the King and thus of the souls for whom He shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of Holy Cross:


The Court of our divine King, during his grandest of seasons, is brilliant beyond measure; and to-day, it is gladdened by the arrival of one of the most glorious champions of the world of truth for his holy cause. Among the guardians of the word of truth, confided by Jesus to the earth, is there one more faithful than Athanasius? Does not his very name remind us of dauntless courage in the defense of the sacred deposit, of heroic firmness and patience in suffering, of learning, of talent, of eloquence--in a word, of everything that goes to from a Saint, a Bishop, and a Doctor of the Church? Athanasius lived for the Son of god; the cause of the Son of God was that of Athanasius; he who blessed Athanasius, blessed the eternal Word; and he who insulted Athanasius insulted the eternal Word.

Never did our holy faith go through a greater ordeal than in the sad times immediately following the peace of the Church, when the bark of Peter had to pass through the most furious storm that hell has, so far, let loose against her. Satan had vainly sought to drown the Christian race in a sea of blood; the sword of persecution had grown blunt in the hands of Diocletian and Galerius; and the Cross appeared in the heavens, proclaiming the triumph of Christianity. Scarcely had the Church become aware of her victory when she felt herself shaken to her very foundation. Hell sent upon the earth a heresy which threatened to blight the fruit of three hundred years of martyrdom. Arius began his impious doctrine, that he who had hitherto been adored as the Son of God was only a creature, though the most perfect of all creatures. Immense was the number, even of the clergy, that fell into this new error; the Emperors became its abettors; and had not God himself interposed, men would soon have set up the cry throughout the world that the only result of the victory gained by the Christian religion was to change the object of idolatry, and put a new idol, called Jesus, in place of the old ones.

But he who had promised that the gates of hell should never prevail against his Church, faithfully fulfilled his promise. The primitive faith triumphed; the Council of Nicaea proclaimed the Son to be consubstantial with the Father; but the Church stood in need of a man in whom the cause of the consubstantial Word should be, so to speak, incarnated--a man with learning enough to foil the artifices of heresy, and with courage enough to bear every persecution without flinching. This man was Athanasius; and everyone that adores and loves the Son of God, should love and honour Athanasius. Five times banished from his See of Alexandria, he fled for protection to the West, which justly appreciated the glorious confessor of Jesus' divinity. In return for the hospitality accorded him by Rome, Athanasius gave her of his treasures. Being the admirer and friend of the great St. Antony, he was a fervent admirer of the monastic life, which, by the grace of the Holy Ghost, had flourished so wonderfully in the deserts of his vast patriarchate. He brought the precious seed to Rome, and the first monks seen there were the ones introduced by Athanasius. The heavenly plant became naturalized in its new soil; and though its growth was slow at first, it afterwards produced fruit more abundantly than it had ever done in the East.


Inspiring words for our own day. May Saint Athanasius help us to persevere in our unswerving fealty to the Holy Faith without any concessions made to conciliarism whatsoever.

Today, May 3, 2011, is the Feast of the Finding of the Holy Cross by Saint Helena, the mother of Emperor Constantine, who saw the Sign of the Cross in the sky and was given by Our Lord Himself to know "In hoc signo vinces" ("In this sign you will conquer"). Let us turn again to Dom Prosper Gueranger for a stirring account of this feast day:


It was most just that our divine King should show himself to us with the sceptre of his power, to the end that nothing might be wanting to the majesty of his empire. This sceptre is the Cross; and Paschal Time was to be the season for its being offered to him in glad homage. A few weeks back, and the Cross was shown to us to be the instrument of our Emmanuel's humiliation and as the bed of suffering whereon he died; but has he not since then conquered Death? and what is his cross now but a trophy of his victory? Let it then be brought forth to our gaze and let every knee bend before this sacred Wood, whereby our Jesus won the honour and praise we now give him!

On the day of his birth at Bethlehem we sang these words of the Prophet Isaias: A child is born unto us, and a son is given unto us, and his government is upon his shoulder. We have seen him carrying this Cross upon his shoulder; as Isaac carried the wood for his own immolation; but now it is no longer a heavy burthen. It is shining with a brightness that ravishes the eyes of the angels; and after having received the veneration of man as long as the world lasts, it will suddenly appear in the clouds of heaven, near the Judge of the living and the dead--a consolation to them that have loved it, but a reproach to such as have treated it with contempt or forgetfulness.

Our Saviour did not think the time between his Resurrection and Ascension a fitting one for glorying the instrument of his victory. The Cross was not to be brought into notice until it had subjected the world to him whose glory it so eloquently proclaimed. Jesus was three days in the tomb; his Cross is to lie buried, unknown to men, for three centuries: but it is to have its resurrection, and the Church celebrates this resurrection to-day. Jesus would, in his own good time, add to the joy of Easter by miraculously revealing to us this sacred monument of his love for mankind. He entrusts it to our keeping--it is to be our consolation--as long as the world lasts: is it not just that we should love and venerate it?

Never had Satan's pride with such a humiliation as when he saw the instrument of our perdition made the instrument of our salvation. As the Church expresses it in her Preface for Passiontide: 'He that overcame mankind by a Tree, was overcome by a Tree." Thus foiled, he vented his fury upon this saving Wood, which so bitterly reminded him both of the irresistible power of his conqueror and of the dignity of man who had been redeemed at so great a price. He would fain have annihilated the Cross; but knowing that this was beyond his power, he endeavoured to profane it, and hide it from view.He therefore instigated the Jews to bury it. At the foot of Calvary, not far from the sepulchre, was a deep hole. Into this was the Cross thrown, together with those of the two thieves, the Nails, the Crown of Thorns, and the Inscription or Title written by Pilate. The hole was then filled up with rubbish and earth, and the Sanhedrin exulted in the thought its having effaced the memory of the Nazarene. who could not save himself from the ignominious death of the Cross.

Forty years after this, Jerusalem was destroyed by the Romans, the instruments of God's vengeance. The Holy Places were desecrated by idolaters. A small temple to Venus was erected on Calvary, and another to Jupiter over the Holy Sepulchre. By this, the pagans intended derision; whereas, they were perpetuating the knowledge of two spots of most sacred interest. When peace was restored under Constantine, the Christians had but to remove these pagan monuments, and their eyes behold the holy ground that had been bedewed with the Blood of Jesus, and the glorious Sepulchre. As to the Cross, it was not so easily found. The sceptre of our divine King was to be raised up from its tomb by a royal hand. The saintly Empress Helen, Constantine's mother, was chosen by heaven to pay to Jesus--and that, too, on the very spot where he had received his greatest humiliations--the honours which are due to him as the King of the world. Before laying the foundations of the Basilica of the Resurrection, this worthy follower of Magdalen and the other holy women of the sepulchre was anxious to discover the instrument of our salvation. The Jews had kept up the tradition of the site where it had been buried: the Empress had the excavations made accordingly. With what holy impatience she must have watched the works! and with what ecstasy of joy did she behold the redeeming Wood, which, though not at first distinguishable, was certainly one of the three Crosses that were found! She addressed a fervent prayer to the Saviour, who alone could reveal to her which was the trophy of his victory; the bishop, Macarinus, united his prayers with hers; and their faith was rewarded by a miracle that left them no doubt as to which was the true Cross.

This glorious work was accomplished and the Church was put in possession of the instrument of the world's Redemption. Both East and West were filled with joy at the news of this precious discovery, which heaven had set on foot, and which gave the last finish to the triumph of Christianity. Christ completed his victory over the pagan world by raising thus his standard--not a figurative one, but his own real standard--the Cross, which, up to that time, had been a stumbling-block to the Jews, and foolishness to the Gentiles; but before which every Christian is henceforth to bend his knee. . .

How dear, then, to us should this day be, which blends together the recollection of the Holy Cross and the joys of the Resurrection of that Jesus who by the Cross has won the throne to which we shall soon see him ascend! Let us thank our Heavenly Father for his having restored to mankind a treasure so immensely precious as is the Cross. Until the day comes for it to appear with himself in the clouds of heaven, Jesus has entrusted it to his Spouse, as a pledge of his second coming. On that day, he will collect together all the fragments by his divine power; and the tree of Life will then gladden the elect with its dazzling beauty, and invite them to eternal rest beneath its refreshing shade.


May we cling to the Cross of Our Divine Redeemer, praying as many Rosaries each day in this month of May as our state-in-life permits. The sufferings of this present life will pass. Christ the King will triumph over His enemies in our world of naturalism and in the the counterfeit church of conciliarism. Every extra moment we spend in prayer before Our King in the Most Blessed Sacrament and every extra set of mysteries of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary that we pray will help us to be more and more conformed to the likeness of Our Divine Redeemer, Who endured the Cross, heedless of Its shame, to redeem us and to make us members of His Catholic Church.

We must always remember that this is the time that God has appointed from all eternity for us to live and thus to sanctify and to save our immortal souls as members of the Catholic Church. The graces won for us by the shedding of every single drop of Our Lord's Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross and that flows into our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, the Mediatrix of All Graces, are sufficient for us to handle whatever crosses--personal, social and ecclesiastical--that we are asked to carry. We must give thanks to God at all times for each of our crosses as we seek to serve Him through Our Lady in this time of apostasy and betrayal.

Remember the words of the late William C. Koneazny: "Our Lady will come and throw the bums out!"


We must continue to lift high the Holy Cross!

Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?
