"We're gonna get these folks." (George Walker Bush, September 11, 2001.)
Mr. Obama vowed to track down “all who were involved” in helping a Nigerian man who tried to set off explosives aboard a Northwest Airlines flight as the plane approached Detroit, acknowledging the growing conclusion that the act was not that of a lone wolf but of a trained Qaeda operative. (Obama Seeks to Assure U.S.; Qaeda Group Stakes Claim.)
Sunning himself on the beaches of Oahu, the Commander-in-Chief of the United States of America, the man charged with securing our borders and protecting the United States of America from foreign invasions and attacks, finally roused himself yesterday, three full days after a Nigerian man, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, set himself ablaze on board Northwest Flight 253 from Amsterdam, Netherlands, to Detroit, Michigan, in an effort to destroy the plane, to make that "stern" statement quoted above, which could have been made by his predecessor, George Walker Bush. Three full days. It wouldn't have taken that long for Obama to get himself off of the beaches of Oahu if some scientist had claimed to have further "proof" of a widening hole in the ozone layer.
Barack Hussein Obama, the star of Hawaii Sleep-O, is tongue-tied and as paralyzed as the fictional Robert T. Ironside when dealing with threats posed to American national security by his Mohammedan confreres. Political correctness makes it impossible for Obama to believe privately that which the incompetent George Walker Bush may have believed privately but was too much of a coward to state publicly: that far from being a "religion of peace," Mohammedanism is of its very nature a religion of violence and that every effort must be made to keep Mohammedans who have traveled to places, such as Yemen, known to harbor al-Qaeda training camps out of the United States of America. Even Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's own father tried to warn American officials of the possible dangers posed by his son. This did not matter to the politically correct geniuses in the Obama administration, including the Secretary of the United States Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, who has convinced herself that it is "rightwing domestic terrorism" that is the "true" threat to domestic order, not threats posed by Mohammedans (see
All Hail! Caesar Obamus).
Left-wing ideologues such as Obama and Napolitano cater to every anti-American, leftist dictator imaginable. They are incapable, however, of recognizing the genuine threats posed by Mohammedan terrorists as they are so steeped in hatred for Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and His Holy Name that they consider every religion that denies Our Lord's Sacred Divinity to be sacrosanct from criticism. These are the very same people who are incapable of recognizing of the threat posed by the Red Chinese, who pose the greatest threats to American financial well-being and national security in the next decade or two, as they are so steeped in admiration for the maniacally genocidal Mao Tse Tung as to consider criticism of the Red Chinese regime to be something akin to ideological heresy. It is not for nothing than an image of the late Red Chinese Communist Party leader appears on an ornament in the Christmas tree within the Obama White House or that Obama's own Director of Communications, Anita Dunn, is a self-professed admirer of this mass murderer.
The Obama administration's unwillingness to face the dangers posed by Mohammedanism (or the dangers posed to world peace by the violence inherent in the ways of Talmudic Judaism) or by the Red Chinese or Hugo Chavez or the Castro brothers in Cuba evokes the image of James Earl Carter, Jr., whose catering to Leonid Brezhnev of the Soviet Union or his stooges the Sandinistas in Nicaragua and the Communists in Angola or the anti-Shah Reza Muhammed Pahlavi mullahs in Iran prompted the late Dr. Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn to state the following in his famous commencement address at Harvard University on June 8, 1978:
A decline in courage may be the most striking feature which an outside observer notices in the West in our days. The Western world has lost its civil courage, both as a whole and separately, in each country, each government, each political party and of course in the United Nations. Such a decline in courage is particularly noticeable among the ruling groups and the intellectual elite, causing an impression of loss of courage by the entire society. Of course there are many courageous individuals but they have no determining influence on public life. Political and intellectual bureaucrats show depression, passivity and perplexity in their actions and in their statements and even more so in theoretical reflections to explain how realistic, reasonable as well as intellectually and even morally warranted it is to base state policies on weakness and cowardice. And decline in courage is ironically emphasized by occasional explosions of anger and inflexibility on the part of the same bureaucrats when dealing with weak governments and weak countries, not supported by anyone, or with currents which cannot offer any resistance. But they get tongue-tied and paralyzed when they deal with powerful governments and threatening forces, with aggressors and international terrorists.
Should one point out that from ancient times decline in courage has been considered the beginning of the end? (Solzhenitsyn's Harvard Address, A World Split Apart, June 8, 1978.)
Janet Napolitano, who thinks that pro-life Americans are potential "rightwing domestic terrorists," cannot even bring herself to use the word "terrorist" to describe Mohammedans who attack this country or the word "terrorism" to describe such attacks, preferring the politically correct euphemism "man-caused-disaster." This is the same Janet Napolitano who said on Sunday, December 27, 2009, that the "system" worked to thwart Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's efforts to set himself on fire, setting off, if you will pardon the reference, a firestorm of biting satire from those possessed with something called sanity and rationality who recognized the simple truth that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was stopped only by the courageous actions of passengers and crew members of Flight 253, not because of the Obama administration's national security policies. A naturalist of the rightist persuasion put the matter this way explained that the "system" only in that the Obama administration has succeeded in making the skies as porous as our border with Mexico. Indeed.
Although measures can and must be taken to secure the borders of the United States of America and to do what can be done to prevent incidents such as the one that ended on Christmas Day four days ago solely because a Dutch filmmaker leapt on Abdulmutallab and stop the fire set by the Nigerian man from spreading, the politically correct wimps and enablers of Mohammedanism and Zionism and globalism and international Communism lack the political will to do so. Moreover, of course, those who support the true domestic terrorism represented by the daily slaughter of the preborn in this country by means of chemical and surgical baby-killing are incapable of stopping international terrorism as there is not reason why Mohammedans and others who seek to attack us should have any more regard for our lives than we do for the innocent preborn right in our own midst.
Remember, my friends, each of this nation's three Homeland Security secretaries (Thomas Ridge, a Catholic, and Michael Chertoff, a Jew, in the George Walker Bush administration; Janet Napolitano, a Methodist, in the Barack Hussein Obama administration) has been a pro-abort (see No Homeland Security for the Preborn, 2001.) Those who believe in the American genocide of innocent babies make this country more vulnerable to attacks from all manner of enemies, including from the Mohammedans and the Red Chinese. As Silvio Cardinal Antoniano noted in the Sixteenth Century:
The more closely the temporal power of a nation aligns itself with the spiritual, and the more it fosters and promotes the latter, by so much the more it contributes to the conservation of the commonwealth. For it is the aim of the ecclesiastical authority by the use of spiritual means, to form good Christians in accordance with its own particular end and object; and in doing this it helps at the same time to form good citizens, and prepares them to meet their obligations as members of a civil society. This follows of necessity because in the City of God, the Holy Roman Catholic Church, a good citizen and an upright man are absolutely one and the same thing. How grave therefore is the error of those who separate things so closely united, and who think that they can produce good citizens by ways and methods other than those which make for the formation of good Christians. For, let human prudence say what it likes and reason as it pleases, it is impossible to produce true temporal peace and tranquillity by things repugnant or opposed to the peace and happiness of eternity. (Silvio Cardinal Antoniano, quoted by Pope Pius XI in Divini Illius Magistri, December 31, 1929.)
Part of the chastisement that is being visited upon us at this time involves being governed by men and women who promote evils under cover of the civil law that offend Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and thus wound the souls for whom He shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross, evils that wind up making our nation less and less secure with each passing year. God will never permit any nation that permits each of the four sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance to be promoted under cover of the civil law and to gain widespread acceptance in popular culture to enjoy long term material prosperity or national security. God will permit such a nation to suffer the consequences of its own infidelities and crimes.
Although some Mohammedans are intent on using violence to kill their enemies in accord with the perverse teachings of the wicked, diabolical Koran, others recognize the simple fact that the West has committed demographic suicide by endorsing contraception and abortion, making it possible for Mohammedans to take over almost all of western Europe by the middle of this century without a single shot being fired. What Father Paul Marx, O.S.B., the founder of Human Life International, predicted twenty years ago would be the case is actually happening: Mohammedans are winning by procreation what they lost in the Battle of Tour in 732 A.D., in the Battle of Lepanto on October 7, 1571, and in the Battle at the Gates of Vienna on September 13, 1683. A video presentation made by Catholics in the conciliar structures in 2008 demonstrates this point empirically without, of course, violating what we can call the "protocols of conciliarism" by calling directly for the conversion of the Mohammedans and for the fulfillment of Our Lady's Fatima Message (see
Pope Pius XI noted in Quas Primas, December 11, 1925, that God will indeed take vengeance on nations that have sought to eradicate His Holy Name from public view and that have done things contrary to binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law and thus to the common temporal good and to the eternal good of souls:
Nations will be reminded by the annual celebration of this feast [of Christ the King] that not only private individuals but also rulers and princes are bound to give public honor and obedience to Christ. It will call to their minds the thought of the last judgment, wherein Christ, who has been cast out of public life, despised, neglected and ignored, will most severely avenge these insults; for his kingly dignity demands that the State should take account of the commandments of God and of Christian principles, both in making laws and in administering justice, and also in providing for the young a sound moral education.
For our part, therefore, we must resolve to live more penitentially each day as we seek to offer up the sufferings of this present moment to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, making sure to get to true offerings of Holy Mass during the week as frequently as we can (if this is at all possible, which I realize for many in the world is not a possibility at all in this time of apostasy and betrayal) and making sure to spend at least fifteen to thirty minutes in prayer outside of Mass before Our Lord's Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament as we seek pray as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit. Our patience endurance of the crosses of this present moment will help conform us more and more to the image of Our Divine Redeemer, Who was humble enough to be born in a mean estate in Bethlehem so as to die on the wood of the Cross to redeem us.
May we take inspiration from these words of Pope Pius XI in Quas Primas:
If We ordain that the whole Catholic world shall revere Christ as King, We shall minister to the need of the present day, and at the same time provide an excellent remedy for the plague which now infects society. We refer to the plague of anti-clericalism, its errors and impious activities. This evil spirit, as you are well aware, Venerable Brethren, has not come into being in one day; it has long lurked beneath the surface. The empire of Christ over all nations was rejected. The right which the Church has from Christ himself, to teach mankind, to make laws, to govern peoples in all that pertains to their eternal salvation, that right was denied. Then gradually the religion of Christ came to be likened to false religions and to be placed ignominiously on the same level with them. It was then put under the power of the state and tolerated more or less at the whim of princes and rulers. Some men went even further, and wished to set up in the place of God's religion a natural religion consisting in some instinctive affection of the heart. There were even some nations who thought they could dispense with God, and that their religion should consist in impiety and the neglect of God. The rebellion of individuals and states against the authority of Christ has produced deplorable consequences. We lamented these in the Encyclical Ubi arcano; we lament them today: the seeds of discord sown far and wide; those bitter enmities and rivalries between nations, which still hinder so much the cause of peace; that insatiable greed which is so often hidden under a pretense of public spirit and patriotism, and gives rise to so many private quarrels; a blind and immoderate selfishness, making men seek nothing but their own comfort and advantage, and measure everything by these; no peace in the home, because men have forgotten or neglect their duty; the unity and stability of the family undermined; society in a word, shaken to its foundations and on the way to ruin. We firmly hope, however, that the feast of the Kingship of Christ, which in future will be yearly observed, may hasten the return of society to our loving Savior. It would be the duty of Catholics to do all they can to bring about this happy result. Many of these, however, have neither the station in society nor the authority which should belong to those who bear the torch of truth. This state of things may perhaps be attributed to a certain slowness and timidity in good people, who are reluctant to engage in conflict or oppose but a weak resistance; thus the enemies of the Church become bolder in their attacks. But if the faithful were generally to understand that it behooves them ever to fight courageously under the banner of Christ their King, then, fired with apostolic zeal, they would strive to win over to their Lord those hearts that are bitter and estranged from him, and would valiantly defend his rights.
Moreover, the annual and universal celebration of the feast of the Kingship of Christ will draw attention to the evils which anticlericalism has brought upon society in drawing men away from Christ, and will also do much to remedy them. While nations insult the beloved name of our Redeemer by suppressing all mention of it in their conferences and parliaments, we must all the more loudly proclaim his kingly dignity and power, all the more universally affirm his rights.
The way has been happily and providentially prepared for the celebration of this feast ever since the end of the last century. It is well known that this cult has been the subject of learned disquisitions in many books published in every part of the world, written in many different languages. The kingship and empire of Christ have been recognized in the pious custom, practiced by many families, of dedicating themselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus; not only families have performed this act of dedication, but nations, too, and kingdoms. In fact, the whole of the human race was at the instance of Pope Leo XIII, in the Holy Year 1900, consecrated to the Divine Heart. It should be remarked also that much has been done for the recognition of Christ's authority over society by the frequent Eucharistic Congresses which are held in our age. These give an opportunity to the people of each diocese, district or nation, and to the whole world of coming together to venerate and adore Christ the King hidden under the Sacramental species. Thus by sermons preached at meetings and in churches, by public adoration of the Blessed Sacrament exposed and by solemn processions, men unite in paying homage to Christ, whom God has given them for their King. It is by a divine inspiration that the people of Christ bring forth Jesus from his silent hiding-place in the church, and carry him in triumph through the streets of the city, so that he whom men refused to receive when he came unto his own, may now receive in full his kingly rights.
We need to be reminded of these truths constantly, especially as we continue our celebration of the Nativity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in Christmas Day.
We give unto the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary all of our efforts to plant a few seeds when all men everywhere will exclaim as the fruit of the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary when the only peace plan that matters, Heaven's Peace Plan, Our Lady's Fatima Peace Plan, is fulfilled:
