Fragile Is The House of Cards

by Thomas A. Droleskey

The twin, inter-related anti-Incarnational errors of Modernity in the world and Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism have created a house of cards in their respective spheres of influence and power. Houses of cards are fragile. They must fall apart because the slightest movement or breeze of any sort will cause them to collapse.

This is a reality however, that the lords of Modernity in the world and of Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism do not recognize as they continue to act on the false premise that their respective houses are built on the sturdy foundations of truth, which they are not.

To wit, then United States Senator George S. McGovern (D-South Dakota) proposed to cut thirty-seven percent of the defense budget of the United States of America over the course of three years, a defense budget that was premised explicitly (and I read the entire budget from cover-to-cover as part of a course in national security policy I took at the University of Notre Dame when I started graduate studies there in the Spring 1973 Semester) on what McGovern stated was the "good intentions of the Soviet Union." No, I am not making this up. McGovern was a disciple of the former Secretary of Agriculture, the former Vice President of the United States of America and the former Secretary of Commerce, Henry Agard Wallace, who contended that the Cold War was entirely the fault of the United States of America, whose leaders, including the man who replaced him as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's vice presidential running mate in 1944, Harry S. Truman, misunderstood the desire of Soviet dictator and mass murderer Joseph Stalin to erect a "security buffer" around his country so as to prevent another invasion such as the one engineered by Adolph Hitler on June 22, 1941. Sure, the Stalin wanted a "buffer zone." It was called the world.

Undaunted, however, McGovern, who served as a delegate to Henry Wallace's Progressive Party nomination convention in 1948, based his entire proposed defense budget on the "good intentions" of the Soviet Union, then headed by the corrupt murderer and neo-Stalinist by the name of Leonid Brezhnev, disregarding the history of the previous twenty-seven years since the end of World War II. George Stanley McGovern told journalist Theodore H. White during the campaign in 1972 that "The war against communism is over…somehow we have to settle down and live with them."


It is much in the same vein of the blithe acceptance of the enemies of the United States of America as having "good intentions" that the current caesar, Barack Hussein Obama (aka Barry Soetero), trusts that Vladimir Putin, who will be restored on May 7, 2012, to the position as President of the Russian Federation after serving as Dmitry Medvedev's puppeteer for the past four years as Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, can wait until after the American presidential election on Tuesday, November 6, 2012, for Obama, who will crush former Massachusetts Governor Willard Mitt Romney in that election, will be have to have more "flexibility" to disarm the United States of America in a second term (you can click here for the You Tube video of the incredible surrender of American national security: Barack Obama in open microphone gaffe with Dmitry Medvedev):


President Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.

President Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…

President Obama: This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.

President Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir. (President Obama Asks Medvedev for 'Space' on Missile Defense — 'After My Election.)

Yes, the man mentored by a Communist by the name of Frank Marshall Davis needs incoming Russian President Vladimir Putin to give him some "space" so that he can act with more "flexibility" after his "last" election (which I am not convinced will be his last election as it is my contention that a re-elected Barack Hussein Obama is going to push Congress to approve a repeal of the Twenty-second Amendment to be sent to the states for ratification to permit him to run for a third term at the age of fifty-five in 2016).

Do not doubt my telling you that this is all a chastisement for our sins and the sins of this country. Yes, you see, as I explain in Conversion in Reverse (whose price has now been reduced to $3.99), the Constitution of the United States of America erected a penultimate house of cards, one that depended for its stability upon the vagaries of a "well-informed" citizenry and of leaders noted for their "civic virtue." Naturalism cannot withstand forces that move men in the direction of the illusion of "progress" and a "world without conflict." A government created upon a fabric of lies that contend it is possible for men to pursue the common temporal good without subordinating it to man's Last End (the possession of the glory of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity in Heaven) and that it possible for men to persevere in virtue absent a belief in, access to and cooperation with Sanctifying Grace is bound to devolve in statism and to thus sow the seeds of the surrender of its own national sovereignty and legitimate security over the course of time.

Similarly, the chief lord of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict, remains unbent in his revolutionary, heretical and insane belief that "religious freedom" is the key to "human dignity" around the world, including the prison-state known as Cuba. Just as his representatives as alleged "bishops" of the Catholic Church have been contending that "religious freedom" must be "protected" against the policies of the very man who is the quintessential end product of American "religious freedom, "Barack Hussein Obama (see Ominous Offenders Offending Ominously, Memo To David Axelrod And Other Social Engineers, John Carroll's Caesar, Victims of Compromise, Taking A Figure Of Antichrist At His Worthless Words, Prisoners Of Their Own ApostasyStill Cut From The Same Cloth and Timothy Dolan, Meet Timothy Dolan (And Friends)), the false "pontiff" exalted "religious freedom" as the solution to "human dignity" in Cuba during the "homily" he gave yesterday in a Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service that he staged in the Plaza of the Revolution in Havana, Cuba:

The right to freedom of religion, both in its private and in its public dimension, manifests the unity of the human person, who is at once a citizen and a believer. It also legitimizes the fact that believers have a contribution to make to the building up of society. Strengthening religious freedom consolidates social bonds, nourishes the hope of a better world, creates favourable conditions for peace and harmonious development, while at the same time establishing solid foundations for securing the rights of future generations. (Abominable Novus Ordo Stage Show "Plaza de la Revolución".)


There is a special irony to this in that Ratzinger/Benedict condemned those who believed that they were in sole possession of "their truth" by acting with "irrationality and fanaticism, a clear swipe at the Communism of Fidel and Raul Castro, while supporting with inflexibility and irrationality and fanaticism "his truth," religious freedom, that has been condemned by true pope after true pope. Here's just one reminder:


And, since where religion has been removed from civil society, and the doctrine and authority of divine revelation repudiated, the genuine notion itself of justice and human right is darkened and lost, and the place of true justice and legitimate right is supplied by material force, thence it appears why it is that some, utterly neglecting and disregarding the surest principles of sound reason, dare to proclaim that "the people's will, manifested by what is called public opinion or in some other way, constitutes a supreme law, free from all divine and human control; and that in the political order accomplished facts, from the very circumstance that they are accomplished, have the force of right." But who, does not see and clearly perceive that human society, when set loose from the bonds of religion and true justice, can have, in truth, no other end than the purpose of obtaining and amassing wealth, and that (society under such circumstances) follows no other law in its actions, except the unchastened desire of ministering to its own pleasure and interests? (Pope Pius IX, Quanta Cura, December 8, 1864.)


Communists believe in Communism. They are not interested in permitting adherents of competing religious beliefs to speak openly. They want total adherence to their revolutionary agenda and their policies du jour. Communists must be converted to the true Faith. This is, after all, why Our Lady called for the consecration of Russia to her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart by a pope with all of the world's bishops as she urged us all to pray her Most Holy Rosary daily for the conversion of sinners, starting with ourselves, of course.

It is no accident, my good, few and mostly penurious readers, that Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, true to the pattern he has established in these past seven years, noting very few exceptions here and there, did not make one mention of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary in Mexico or in Cuba during his now concluded pilgrimage to those countries. Not one. Remember, obviously, he does not believe in Our Lady's Fatima Message and he does not believe that Our Lady physically appeared to Jacinta and Francisco Marto and their cousin Lucia dos Santos in the Cova da Iria near Fatima, Portugal, ninety-five years ago now (see On Full Display: The Modernist Mind). While some defenders of all things Ratzinger/Benedict might contend that their "pontiff" was afraid to "make things worse" for Catholics in Cuba if he spoke openly of praying the Rosary for the conversion of Communist leaders, he could have, at the very least, urged those who attended his liturgical service to pray the Rosary. Instead, of course, he exalts "religious freedom" as the key to "human rights" in Cuba and elsewhere in the world.

More to the point, however, is the fact that the false "pontiff" should not have been in Cuba in the first place to accord any kind of legitimacy on the tyrannical, murderous regime that has been in place there for fifty-three years now. Pope Pius XI forbade any sort of legitimacy bestowed upon Communist regimes, no matter the actual fact of their controlling civil power in a particular nation. He also forbade any kind of assistance to be given or cooperation undertaken with such regimes:

58. See to it, Venerable Brethren, that the Faithful do not allow themselves to be deceived! Communism is intrinsically wrong, and no one who would save Christian civilization may collaborate with it in any undertaking whatsoever. Those who permit themselves to be deceived into lending their aid towards the triumph of Communism in their own country, will be the first to fall victims of their error. And the greater the antiquity and grandeur of the Christian civilization in the regions where Communism successfully penetrates, so much more devastating will be the hatred displayed by the godless.

59. But "unless the Lord keep the city, he watcheth in vain that keepeth it."[38] And so, as a final and most efficacious remedy, We recommend, Venerable Brethren, that in your dioceses you use the most practical means to foster and intensify the spirit of prayer joined with Christian penance. When the Apostles asked the Savior why they had been unable to drive the evil spirit from a demoniac, Our Lord answered: "This kind is not cast out but by prayer and fasting."[39] So, too, the evil which today torments humanity can be conquered only by a world-wide crusade of prayer and penance. We ask especially the Contemplative Orders, men and women, to redouble their prayers and sacrifices to obtain from heaven efficacious aid for the Church in the present struggle. Let them implore also the powerful intercession of the Immaculate Virgin who, having crushed the head of the serpent of old, remains the sure protectress and invincible "Help of Christians." (Pope Pius XI, Divini Redemptoris, March 19, 1937


Pope Pius XI knew, quite in contrast to the position taken by Ratzinger/Benedict in his farewell address at Jose Marti International Airport in Havana yesterday, Wednesday, March 28, 2012, that Communists were not interested in "listening" to the views of others. Pope Pius XI also knew that Catholics had no need to "listen" to the "viewpoints' of Communists. Catholics had to pray for the conversion of Communists and for an end to Communism, which is why one of the great, inexplicable mysteries of the pontificates of Popes Pius XI and his successors, Pius XII, is that neither saw fit to obey Our Lady's specific request, made to Lucia dos Santos, on June 29, 1925, for the consecration of Russia to her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart with all of the world's bishops. The errors of Russia, which are really the errors of Modernity, the errors of Orthodoxy, Protestantism and Judeo-Masonry (and all of its naturalistic components, including Communism), have spread as a result, something we can see with particular clarity right here in the United States of America. (For a listing of those errors, please see the appendix found at the end of Conversion of Russia Update.)

Ratzinger/Benedict noted also in his "homily" during his Novus Ordo abomination yesterday that what he thinks is the Catholic Church makes not special "privileges" for herself with respect to the civil authorities, once again betraying the Social Reign of Christ the King and the immutable Catholic doctrine that the civil state is obliged to recognize the true religion and to accord her the favor and protection of the laws. For while the Catholic Church can and must adapt herself to the actual realities in which her children live at any given point in salvation history, she never surrenders her Sacred Doctrine for the sake of appeasing civil authorities who are hostile to her. She adapts to the situation at hand while teaching her children to uphold the teaching she has received from her Divine Founder and Invisible Head with perfect purity and without a trace of compromise on matters of principle.

As Ratzinger/Benedict rejects the Social Kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ out of hand and believes instead in "healthy secularity," his calls yesterday for his church to be free to teach the people as had been done in the past in Cuba is but a mockery but the faith of his church is false. It has nothing at all to do with patrimony of the Catholic Faith, which is Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II made sure to take advantage of the apparent "fall" of Communism in 1989 in Eastern Europe and in 1991 in the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics to send in "missionaries" to "evangelize" Catholics in the revolutionary ways of the "Second" Vatican Council that were nothing but a "reconciliation" with the anti-Incarnational principles of Modernity that helped to spawn the Communism under which they were so oppressed for so long (and are still be oppressed to one extent or another in various locations in the former Soviet bloc). 

Although not familiar with the practices in the region of Mexico visited by Ratzinger/Benedict over the past weekend, perhaps the reason that he called upon his brother non-bishops in Mexico and Latin America to work harder to incorporate the laity in the "liturgy" and "decision-making" is that at least some of the Catholics in the region still possess enough of the sensus Catholicus to recognize revolutionary change for it is, rejecting it as something that is not of God and indeed offensive to Him. Ratzinger/Benedict has no problem with his brother German non-bishops denying the fact that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ died on the wood of the Holy Cross on Good Friday in atonement for our sins or with the blasphemous liturgies that continue to take place there (see 2012 Carnival Mass in Bruchsal). He has great problems with those who have not as of yet accepted the totality of his own agenda that is just as revolutionary as the one in Cuba that he denounced for being "immovable" yesterday. He, the aging Modernist who rejects Scholasticism and has made warfare upon the very nature of dogmatic truth that has made it possible for him to wage open warfare on the totality of the Faith, is just as much "immovable" as the Communists he criticized yesterday.

A final note is in order here.

The great Apostle to Cuba, Saint Anthony Mary Claret, was ignored during the false "pontiff's three day visit to that country. Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that Saint Anthony Mary Claret heard Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ tell him that He would chastise those who abandon the Catholic Faith with Protestantism and Communism:

On Christmas Day God infused into me the love of persecution and calumnies. . . . I dreamed I was imprisoned for a crime of which I was innocent. . . . To one who would have defended me, as St. Peter wished to defend Our Savior, I said: 'Shall I not drink the chalice my Father has given me?'

"On January 6, 1859, Our Lord made known to me that I am like the earth . . . which is trampled upon, yet doesn't speak. I, too, must be trodden underfoot and say nothing. The earth suffers cultivation. I must suffer mortification. Finally, to produce anything, the earth needs water; I, for the performance of good works, divine grace."

How consoling it must have been to hear Jesus promise him divine love, while tenderly addressing him as: "My little Anthony"--on April 27, 1859! And how he strove, ever harder, to obey his Redeemer's injunction, given at 4:25 a.m., on September 4, of that same year: "You have to teach your missionaries mortification, Anthony," to which, a few moments later, Our Lady added, "Thus will you reap fruit in souls, Anthony!"

And, now conditioned to receive supernatural messages in precise words and audible tones, and when they were precepts, to obey perfectly, he was ready for the most glorious promise and the most portentous revelation of all. "At 7:30 on the morning of September 23, Our Lord told me: 'You will fly across the earth . . . to preach of the immense chastisements soon to come to pass.' And He gave me to understand those words of the Apocalypse: 'And I behold and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabitants of the earth; by reason of the rest of the voices of the three angels who are yet to sound the trumpet.' this meant that the three great judgments of God that are going to fall upon the world are: 1) Protestantism and Communism; 2) the four archdemons who will,in a truly frightful manner, incite all to the love of pleasure, money, reason and independence of will; 3) the great wars with their horrible consequences."

Can we read this prophecy, set down for us a century ago, just when our world was entering upon the "golden age" of industry and commerce, of the scientific achievement that our grandfathers were assured was destined to create a life so good for all peoples that war would be banished forever, and doubt from whence it came? And do we dare to trace it from the Protestant Reformation to the curse of Communism; from the conquest of materialism to the deification of poor weak human reason and self-determination into "the great wars and their horrible consequences"! Upon the clean tablet of Anthony Claret's selfless spirit Our Lord engraved the warning His servant was to spell out for us" the incredible but inevitable graph of the "progress" of one century--our century! (Franchon Royer, The Life of St. Anthony Mary Claret, published originally in 1957 by Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, and republished by TAN Books and Publishers, 1985, pp. 211-213.)


We in the United States of America are indeed being chastised with the scourges of Protestantism and Communism, which makes the fact that fruit of Wojtyla/John Paul II's 1998 visit to Cuba even more telling as Protestant "missionaries" entered the country in the years that followed to proselytize in behalf of their own false, diabolical religions in the name of the "religious freedom" that the non-beatus urged Fidel Castro to consider implementing, at least in part.

It's all a house of cards, a house that is, of course, fragile of its nature.

Our Lady herself called upon Saint Anthony Mary Claret to be the new Saint Dominic of his time in order to spread devotion to her Most Holy Rosary:


On various other occasions during that perplexing year [1857] which had brought him home to Spain, he had been blessed by direct messages--in words--from the Blessed Mother. In October: "Now you know; be sorry for the sins of your pat life, and watchful in the future. . . . Do you hear me, Anthony? Be watchful in the future. This is what I have to say to you." And later: "You must be the Dominic of these times in propagating devotion to the Rosary."  (Franchon Royer, The Life of St. Anthony Mary Claret, published originally in 1957 by Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, and republished by TAN Books and Publishers, 1985, p. 211.)

This is quite a contrast with the man, Ratzinger/Benedict, who almost never but never mentions the Holy Rosary. He is truly the anti-Saint Dominic of our times.

With total trust in Our Lady and her Most Chaste Spouse, Saint Joseph, the Patron of the Universal Church and the Protector of the Faithful, may we pray as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit so that all men everywhere will live and work and pray with hearts united to the Most Sacred Heart and Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary in one exclamation:


Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!

Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?

Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.

Saint John the Baptist, pray for us.

Saint John the Evangelist, pray for us.
