"Irrelevant" Now Perhaps, Not At The Particular Judgment
by Thomas A. Droleskey
Daniel Pfeiffer is all of thirty-seven years of age. He holds two different positions in President Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro's White House, that of Assistant to the President and Senior Advisor to the President for Strategy and Communications. In other words, Daniel Pfeiffer, is paid rather handsomely to spin lies such as these:
CHRIS WALLACE, "FOX NEWS SUNDAY" HOST: Let's turn to Benghazi. And I want to ask you about one lingering question, which is the president's actions on 9/11, the night of the attack, because we don't know very much about that. We do know that in the afternoon he had already scheduled meeting with Defense Secretary Panetta as well as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Martin Dempsey when he heard about this while they were in a meeting on an unrelated subject. He said that wanted them to deploy forces as soon as possible.
The next time that he shows up, is as Hillary Clinton says that she spoke to him at around 10:00 that night after the attack at the consulate, not as it turned out at the annex, but the attack at the consulate was -- had ended. Question, what did the president do the rest of that night to pursue Benghazi?
DAN PFEIFFER, SENIOR ADVISER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, look, the president was kept up to date on this as it was happening throughout the entire night, from the moment it started until the very end. And because this is a critically -- this was a horrible tragedy. These are people that he sent abroad whose lives are in risk, people who work for him. And I recognize that there's a series of conspiracy theories the Republicans have been spinning about this since the night it happened, but there's been an independent review of this, congress has held hearings, we provided 250,000 pages of -- 250,000 pages of documents up there. There's been 11 hearings, 20 staff briefings. And everyone has found the same thing, this is a tragedy.
And so the question here is not what happened that night. The question is what are we going to do to move forward ensuring that this doesn't happen again. That's why Congress should act on what the president called for earlier this week, to pass legislation to allow us to actually implement all the recommendations of the independent accountability review board so we can protect our diplomats around the world, because when we send our diplomats off into far-flung places, there's an inherent level of risk. We should do what we can to mitigate that risk.
WALLACE: But with due respect, you didn't answer my question. What did the president do that night?
PFEIFFER: He was kept -- he was in constant touch that night with his national security team and kept up to date with the events as they were happening.
WALLACE: When you say his national security team, he didn't talk to the secretary of state, except for the one time when the first attack was over. He didn't talk to the secretary of defense. He didn't talk to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs. Who was he talking to?
PFEIFFER: He was talking to his national security staff, his National Security Council, the people who keep him up to date about briefings as they happen.
WALLACE: Was he in the Situation Room?
PFEIFFER: He was kept up to date throughout the day.
WALLACE: Do you not know whether he was in the Situation Room?
PFEIFFER: I don't remember what room the president was in on that night. And that's a largely irrelevant fact.
WALLACE: Well --
PFEIFFER: The point is -- the question is -- the premise of your question is that somehow there was something that could have been done differently, OK, that would have changed the outcome here. The accountability review board has looked at this. People have looked at it. It's a horrible tragedy, what happened, and we have to make sure it doesn't happen again.
WALLACE: Here's the point, though. The ambassador goes missing, ends up the first ambassador in more than 30 years is killed. Four Americans, including the ambassador, are killed. Dozens of Americans are in jeopardy. The president at 4:00 in the afternoon says to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs to deploy forces. No forces are deployed. Where is he while all this is going on?
PFEIFFER: This has been testified to by the --
WALLACE: Well, no. No one knows where he was, or how he was involved, or who told him there were no forces --
PFEIFFER: The suggestion of your question is that somehow the president --
WALLACE: I just want to know what the answer is.
PFEIFFER: The assertions from Republicans here that somehow the president allowed this to happen or didn't take action is offensive. It is absolutely an offensive premise. And there's no evidence to support it. (Obama Aide Pfeiffer: "Largely Irrelevant Fact" Where Obama Was.)
White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said Sunday the question of whether any laws were broken in the Internal Revenue Scandal is “irrelevant” to the fact that the agency’s actions were wrong and unjustifiable.
“I can’t speak to the law here. The law is irrelevant,” Pfeiffer
said on ABC News’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos.” “The activity
was outrageous and inexcusable, and it was stopped and it needs to be
fixed to ensure it never happens again.”
Stephanopoulos replied: “You don’t really mean the law is irrelevant, do you?”
Pfeiffer responded: “What I mean is, whether it’s legal or illegal is
not important to the fact that the conduct doesn’t matter. The
Department of Justice has said that they’re looking into the legality of
this. The president is not going to wait for that. We have to make sure
it does not happen again, regardless of how that turns out.” (Dan Pfeiffer: Legal questions in IRS scandal 'irrelevant'.)
Obviously, the truth about the abuse of governmental power to cover-up crimes involving a lack of protection provided to Americans under siege in a nation where they should not have been placed into harm's way in the first place and about the efforts of the United States Internal Revenue Service to target tax-exempt status applications made by groups affiliated with the Tax Enough Already (Tea Party) movement and those identifying their principal raison d'etre as constitutionalism or "freedom" or "patriotism" is not irrelevant in the objective order of things.
Unfortunately, however, the United States of America, born as a result of the false, naturalistic, religiously indifferentist, anti-Incarnational and semi-Pelagian principles of Modernity whose birth and maturation were made possible by the Protestant Revolution's overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King, is composed of largely materialistic creatures who live according to the whims of pure subjectivism. Those whose lives revolving around eating, drinking and making merry with all manner of bread and circuses have developed such an immunity to truth, whether on the supernatural or natural level, that professional liars who have abused the powers entrusted to them and have even broken the provisions of the Constitution of the United States of America and of various laws proscribing their exercise know that the public is generally very sanguine about matters that can be dismissed in Manichean terms of "us against them."
As has been written on this site many times before, William Jefferson Blythe Clinton remains one of the most beloved and admired men in the United States of America despite his own proven record of attempting to suppress dissent, harass and investigate political adversaries, commit the forces of the United States of America to the conflict in the Balkans, react with indifference and lies following the bombing of the USS Cole on Thursday, October 12, 2000, an attack that went without any retaliation (see USS Cole: 'Rock solid' evidence, no retaliation), raise ready campaign cash illegally from Red Chinese arms merchants (see
The Idiot's Guide to Chinagate), and, of course, the perjury he committed when questioned in a deposition on January 17, 1998, by James Fisher, an attorney representing Paula Corbin Jones, for which he copped an obstruction of justice" plea with Independent Counsel Robert Ray on January 19, 2001. (For a more complete, although hardly exhaustive, recitation of Clinton's crimes against God and men, see Truth Has Never Mattered To The Clintons, Truth Has Never Mattered To Their Hapless Opponents.)
All of this is completely irrelevant to most Americans as the Scoundrel Number 42's favorability rating among the American public last year reached sixty-nine percent. That's right, sixty-nine percent. And this is not even to mention William Jefferson Blythe Clinton's aggressive promotion of the chemical and surgical execution of the innocent preborn and the role played by Attorney General Janet Reno, a Catholic, mind you, in organizing the Violence Against Abortion Providers Conspiracy (VAAPCON) Task Force 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).
Similarly, Clinton's successor, George Walker Bush is viewed favorably by many dyed-in-the-wool Bushies despite his own violation of the Constitution of the United States of America by means of his own statist policies, including the hideous "No Child Left Behind," the Medicare prescription drug bonanza and the first "Troubled Assets Relief Program" (TARP--see A Country Full of Boiled Frogs), and by means of his unjust, unconstitutional and immoral invasion of Iraq on March 20, 2003, that has empowered believing Mohammedans, revived sectarian violence there, displaced two-thirds of the Chaldean Rite Catholics from their native land and cost the lives of 4,488 Americans and countless more Iraqis. Yes, all of this is quite "irrelevant" to true believers in George Walker Bush and his "Global War on Terror," to say nothing of the fact that the man was a complete pro-life fraud. (See Without Any Rational Foundation for a summary of Bush's true anti-life record.)
The current statist, Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, maintains reasonably high favorability ratings despite all of the recent revelations of his abuses of power and despite the fact that a recent Fox News Poll indicates that a majority of voters believe that he Could Have Done More to Help in Benghazi. This craven, Marxist-trained figure of Antichrist knows that he has a firm bedrock of support from at least forty-five percent of the American public that is unshakable. Decades upon decades of ideological formation in America's Concentration Camps, lax enforcement of existing immigration laws and the carefully-crafted creation of a permanent under-class that his dependent upon government programs to support themselves from the cradle to the grave have produced this forty-five percent of bedrock Obama/Soetoro support, and it is never going anywhere.
Indeed, as I have been attempting to explain for some time now, the chemical and surgical execution of innocent babies has helped to kill off so many of the souls that God intended to live in the so-called "civilized West," including the United States of America, that corporate executives, looking for a cheap supply of labor, and labor unions and professional politicians affiliated with the organized crime family of the false opposite of the "left," have been able to exploit lax immigration enforcement for their own purposes. This trend is absolutely irreversible.
Even Patrick Joseph Buchanan, who, it appears, will never admit that this is all the consequence of the Protestant Revolution's overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King despite his being familiar with the work of Our King's great champion, Father Denis Fahey, has noted this recently (see Requiem for a Grand Old Party). Alas, this is more than a problem of lax immigration law enforcement. It is time for those who believe in the "American way" and who celebrate the principles of the men who had
founding hatred for Christ the King to reckon with the following truths as stated by Pope Leo XIII and Pope Saint Pius X:
To hold, therefore, that there is no difference in matters of religion
between forms that are unlike each other, and even contrary to each
other, most clearly leads in the end to the rejection of all religion in
both theory and practice. And this is the same thing as atheism, however it may differ from it in name. Men
who really believe in the existence of God must, in order to be
consistent with themselves and to avoid absurd conclusions, understand
that differing modes of divine worship involving dissimilarity and
conflict even on most important points cannot all be equally probable,
equally good, and equally acceptable to God. (Pope Leo XIII, Immortale Dei, November 1, 1885.)
Here we have, founded by Catholics, an
inter-denominational association that is to work for the reform of
civilization, an undertaking which is above all religious in character; for there is no true civilization without a moral civilization, and no
true moral civilization without the true religion: it is a proven truth,
a historical fact. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro is simply the penultimate end product of a nation that celebrates "freedom" as its civic officials attempt to pursue the common temporal good without any reference to the Sacred Deposit of Faith that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ has entrusted exclusively to His Catholic Church for Its eternal safekeeping and infallible explication or to man's Last End, the possession of the glory of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity in Heaven, and as most of its populace act on whatever impulse comes to their mind without regard to the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law.
We have reached such a nadir in what passes for "civilization" that most citizens do indeed consider the facts about the attack on the American compound in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012, the targeting of the Fox News reporter James Rosen and reporters for the Associated Press, among other purely secular abuses of power, completely irrelevant even though the facts speak for themselves. No, as always, of course, it's about the money, the money and the money. At a time when some "experts" believe that an economic upturn is taking place, therefore, there is no room for any kind of "relevance" to be accorded the following stories:
More whistleblowers will emerge shortly in the escalating Benghazi scandal, according to two former U.S. diplomats who spoke with PJ Media Monday afternoon.
These whistleblowers, colleagues of the former diplomats, are currently securing legal counsel because they work in areas not fully protected by the Whistleblower law.
According to the diplomats, what these whistleblowers will say will be at least as explosive as what we have already learned about the scandal, including details about what really transpired in Benghazi that are potentially devastating to both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
The former diplomats inform PJM the new revelations concentrate in two areas — what Ambassador Chris Stevens was actually doing in Benghazi and the pressure put on General Carter Ham, then in command of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) and therefore responsible for Libya, not to act to protect jeopardized U.S. personnel.
Stevens’ mission in Benghazi, they will say, was to buy back Stinger missiles from al-Qaeda groups issued to them by the State Department, not by the CIA. Such a mission would usually be a CIA effort, but the intelligence agency had opposed the idea because of the high risk involved in arming “insurgents” with powerful weapons that endanger civilian aircraft.
Hillary Clinton still wanted to proceed because, in part, as one of the diplomats said, she wanted “to overthrow Gaddafi on the cheap.”
This left Stevens in the position of having to clean up the scandalous enterprise when it became clear that the “insurgents” actually were al-Qaeda – indeed, in the view of one of the diplomats, the same group that attacked the consulate and ended up killing Stevens.

Scandal Watch: Despite White House attempts to brush the IRS scandal aside as "irrelevant" or the work of rogue miscreants, huge questions remain about who ordered IRS agents to harass Tea Party groups, and why.
Every day, in fact, raises new and more disturbing questions that congressional investigators must get answers to. Among them:
1. Who told Internal Revenue Service workers to target conservatives? It's becoming increasingly clear these workers did not act on their own. Over the weekend, the Washington Post quoted an IRS staffer saying how "everything comes from the top."
The New York Times reported that IRS accountants got a "directive from their manager" in early 2010 to "be on the lookout" for Tea Party-type groups.
And Treasury workers union President Colleen Kelley told the Associated Press last week, "No processes or procedures or anything like that would ever be done just by frontline employees without any management involvement." So which manager issued the directive? And how far up the chain of command does it go?
2. Who knew what, when? Days after Obama emphatically stated that he learned about the IRS targeting only when it broke on May 10, we learn that Treasury officials told Obama's chief counsel, Kathryn Ruemmler, about the targeting weeks before.
We also learned that Treasury itself had known about the targeting since last June — in the middle of the presidential election, and the IRS officials knew before that, but didn't stop the practice.
Did Treasury tell anyone at the White House? Did Obama's chief counsel? Was anyone talking with the Obama presidential campaign about any of this?
3. Why does Lois Lerner still have a job? Ever since Lerner, director of the IRS' tax exempt organizations unit, planted the "spontaneous" question that let her "inadvertently" reveal the IRS targeting, her false claims about the scandal have piled so high, the Washington Post fact checker called it a "bushel of Pinocchios." Since Lerner played a key role in this scandal, and since it is about public trust in the IRS, it's worth pondering why she hasn't been fired.
4. Will the White House stonewall investigations? Getting the bottom of the scandal will require access to communications within the IRS and between the IRS and other administration officials.
5. Why did the IRS try to cover it up? If this really were a bureaucratic snafu, as IRS officials insist, why did they try so hard to keep it under wraps until after the election, then mislead the country about it once the story broke?
Until these and other questions are answered, this scandal is anything but "irrelevant." (5 Troubling Questions About The IRS Scandal That Demand Answers.)
Obama last week promised he was "looking forward to working with Congress to fully investigate what happened," but his top adviser, Dan Pfeiffer, put a big asterisk next to that over the weekend, saying that "we're not going to participate in ... a partisan fishing expedition designed to distract from the real issues at hand." (5 Troubling Questions About The IRS Scandal That Demand Answers.)
First they came for Fox News, and they did not speak out—because they
were not Fox News. Then they came for government whistleblowers, and
they did not speak out—because they were not government whistleblowers.
Then they came for the maker of a YouTube video, and—okay, we know how
this story ends. But how did we get here?
This is not a promising start, since Obama could toss any request from Congress into that category.
Turns out it’s a fairly swift sojourn from a president pushing to “delegitimize” a news organization to threatening criminal prosecution for journalistic activity by a Fox News reporter, James Rosen, to spying on Associated Press reporters. In between, the Obama administration found time to relentlessly persecute government whistleblowers and publicly harass and condemn a private American citizen for expressing his constitutionally protected speech in the form of an anti-Islam YouTube video.
Where were the media when all this began happening? With a few exceptions, they were acting as quiet enablers.
It’s instructive to go back to the dawn of Hope and Change. It was 2009, and the new administration decided it was appropriate to use the prestige of the White House to viciously attack a news organization—Fox News—and the journalists who work there. Remember, President Obama had barely been in office and had enjoyed the most laudatory press of any new president in modern history. Yet even one outlet that allowed dissent or criticism of the president was one too many. This should have been a red flag to everyone, regardless of what they thought of Fox News. The math was simple: if the administration would abuse its power to try and intimidate one media outlet, what made anyone think they weren’t next?
What I think is fair to say about Fox … is that it really is more a wing of the Republican Party," said Anita Dunn, White House communications director, on CNN. “[L]et's not pretend they're a news network the way CNN is." On ABC’s “This Week” White House senior adviser David Axelrod said Fox is "not really a news station." It wasn’t just that Fox News was “not a news organization,” White House chief of staff Rahm Emmanuel told CNN’s John King, but, “more [important], is [to] not have the CNNs and the others in the world basically be led in following Fox, as if what they’re trying to do is a legitimate news organization …”
These series of “warnings” to the Fourth Estate were what you might expect to hear from some third-rate dictator, not from the senior staff of Hope and Change, Inc.
Yet only one mainstream media reporter—Jake Tapper, then of ABC News—ever raised a serious objection to the White House’s egregious and chilling behavior. Tapper asked future MSNBC commentator and then White House press secretary Robert Gibbs: “[W]hy is [it] appropriate for the White House to say” that “thousands of individuals who work for a media organization, do not work for a ‘news organization’?” The spokesman for the president of the United States was unrepentant, saying: “That's our opinion.”
Trashing reporters comes easy in Obama-land. Behind the scenes, Obama-centric Democratic operatives brand any reporter who questions the administration as a closet conservative, because what other explanation could there be for a reporter critically reporting on the government?
Now, the Democratic advocacy group Media Matters—which is always mysteriously in sync with the administration despite ostensibly operating independently—has launched a smear campaign against ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl for his reporting on Benghazi. It’s the kind of character assassination that would make Joseph McCarthy blush. The main page of the Media Matters website has six stories attacking Karl for a single mistake in an otherwise correct report about the State Department's myriad changes to talking points they previously claimed to have barely touched. See, the problem isn’t the repeated obfuscating from the administration about the Benghazi attack; the problem is Jonathan Karl. Hence, the now-familiar campaign of de-legitimization. This gross media intimidation is courtesy of tax-deductible donations from the Democratic Party’s liberal donor base, which provides a whopping $20 million a year for Media Matters to harass reporters who won’t fall in line.
In what is surely just a huge coincidence, the liberal media monitoring organization Fairness and Accuracy in the Media (FAIR) is also on a quest to delegitimize Karl. It dug through his past and discovered that in college he allegedly—horrors!—associated with conservatives. Because of this, FAIR declared Karl “a right wing mole at ABC News.” Setting aside the veracity of FAIR’s crazy claim, isn’t the fact that it was made in the first place vindication for those who assert a liberal media bias in the mainstream media? If the existence of a person who allegedly associates with conservatives is a “mole,” then what does that tell us about the rest of the media?
What all of us in the media need to remember—whatever our politics—is that we need to hold government actions to the same standard, whether they’re aimed at friends or foes. If not, there’s no one but ourselves to blame when the administration takes aim at us. (How Hope and Change Gave Way to Spying on the Press.)
Large numbers of people in the United States of America do not care about this as they have been boiled alive by the kind of creeping statism that must triumph in any nation that is founded on the anti-Incarnational principles of Modernity.
Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro is, much like Jorge Mario Bergoglio, a Manichean in his own right as he believes he is the very embodiment of "good" and his opponents are the very embodiment of evil and must be crushed by whatever means necessary. Constitutionalism or non-denominationalism or interdenominationalism or secularism can never turn back the tide against a degradation caused by the very false premises that are extolled by one and all across the ideological expanse of Judeo-Masonic naturalism as the means to create the "just" society. The "religious liberty" that makes such religiously indifferentist approaches prevail is what has produced Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro and the support that he maintains with a large plurality, if not a majority, of the American people, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis's praise of this heresy notwithstanding (see Don't Worry, Jorge, We Don't Take You Seriously As A Catholic In The Slightest).
Indeed, how many Americans, including far too many
Catholics all up and down and across the vast expanse of the
ecclesiastical divide during this time of apostasy and betrayal, believe
that God will "bless America" with material prosperity in abundance
even as the daily carnage of preborn children, killed by chemical and
surgical means under cover of the civil law, continues unabated and as
all manner of evils ("rock" music, gross immodesty of dress, indecency
of speech, blasphemy, usury, commercialism, materialism,
self-indulgence, gluttony, perversity, pornography, and statism, to name
to just a few) are promoted in our popular culture and protected in our
laws, our courtrooms and taught to children in public and conciliar
Who cares about these lies? Who is seeking to make
reparation for them by praying to become victim souls to offer
themselves as oblations of love to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus
through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. How many people are
seeking to withdraw more and more from the bread and circuses to make
reparation for the excesses engendered by a world that has rejected and
spat upon and forgotten the Social Reign of Christ the King and the
public honor that must be given to His Most Blessed Mother, Mary our
A nation founded on lies produces liars. I seem to recall writing an article about that once or twice (see A System Based on Lies Produces Liars).
We should be surprised that the administration of the ruling caesar has
lied to us everything while tightening the statist noose around our necks?
Contrary to what most people, including most Catholics, believe, the United States of America is not and never has been a "Christian" nation as Catholicism is the one and only expression of Christianity. Everything else is from the devil.
Consider these words of Father Robert Mader, contained in Cross and Crown:
That we are vitally permeated with the actual presence of our King is characteristic of our religion. Catholicism is not merely a marvellous teaching, a wonderful moral system, an unexcelled organization. It is more. It is the real, living, present Jesus with His Mystical Body, i.e., the faithful united with Him. It is not so much a theory as it is something living. A Catholicism that would not be united with Jesus would be nothing but a phantom in the mist, a soulless shell with another name and another outlook than its own.
That is why it is perhaps dangerous to faith if we use misunderstood words like Christianity and Catholicism somewhat too often. Let us repeat: Catholicism is not a theory, not a teaching, Christianity is the invisible but truly living presence of Christ among us, the Kingship of Jesus. To be Catholic means to stand in vital communication, through faith, hope and love, with the invisibly present Redeemer, the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
Thus it is that there, where Jesus is not present in the Host and no living communication with Him takes place, there can be no living Christianity. In that moment when Luther rejected the Sacrament of the Altar and therewith Christ present, he rejected Christianity.
Christianity equals Christ with the Christians! What does Jesus do when He is with the Christians? The same thing he did for three years in Palestine: be King. We often have no real concept of the life and the effectiveness of Jesus in the tabernacle. We think that because our eyes and ears are too weak to observe the divine-human activity of Jesus in the tabernacle, only the stillness of death reigns there. That is a gross deception.
His activity depends neither upon the greatness of his work room nor the loudness of sounds. What gigantic work is done by sun and nature, although no eye and ear can observe its progress! The Jesus of the tabernacle is the same as the Jesus in the Gospels, the same in Holiness, in Might, in Wisdom, in Omniscience, in Mercy and in Love. St. Paul writes in Hebrews (13:8) that "Jesus Christ, yesterday, and to-day; and the same for ever."
So what is Jesus doing in the tabernacles? He exercises His priestly office. The King prays. He hold perpetual adoration. He holds services in the name of the parish. He celebrates the Holy Mass. The visible Mass is over with the Ite missa est. The invisible Mass continues day and night since Jesus is present in the tabernacle, as an offering of praise and thanks and reparation. The parish priest is obliged by canon law to "read" Holy Mass for the congregation every Sunday. That is called "application." Jesus does more than the visible priest. He prays and makes application for HIs people continually.
What else Jesus do in the tabernacle? He exercises His office Shepherd. He does pastoral care of souls. The King keeps watch. The eyes of the Good Shepherd never sleep. They see everything that happens in the parish, in the houses and in the hearts. The eyes of the Good Shepherd take note of every longing for help and every danger. The Heart of the Good Shepherd beats for all with unending love, and that is the soul of pastoral work.
What else does Jesus do in the tabernacle? He exercises the preaching office, a preaching that penetrates deeper than just to the ears and without the preaching of the clergy in the pulpit remains nothing but sounding brass and tinkling cymbal. The King speaks. The angels are His parish helpers. They visit the individual souls of the parishioners on assignment from the Saviour and with the power of the Holy Spirit. That proves what ought to be proven: that Christianity is not empty theory. Christianity is Christ with the Christians! The King lives!
Christianity should not be anything for us than it was for the Apostles: a living relationship to Jesus present. This personal relationship expresses itself in faith, hope and love for Jesus the King. Above all it is the Christian with Christ through love! Take for example in thought. Love expresses itself in its domination of the entire world of our thoughts. The world of thoughts usually is preoccupied with business, pleasure, the latest sensation, exaggerated worries and often just dirt. It is materialistic, money-grabbing, sensual, alcoholic, worldly. It is the thought of a baptized heathen. If we want to call ourselves Christians, then we ought to think of nothing but Christ Who is present among us. Neither work nor politics, neither the press nor sports ought to occupy us in the least in comparison to the occupation of our memory and our understanding by Jesus. That's Christianity!
The same applies to the world of feelings. Measure your temperature in Church, near to Jesus. It is much lower than when you are in a theater, a restaurant, in the office. That's not normal. You must have a heart defect. And today it seems that cardiac defects have become the mass epidemic of Christianity. We love everything, only not for Jesus. I repeat: that's not normal! A patient whose temperature has sunk so low is very ill. Christianity is the Christian with Christ. Not only with his thoughts and his feelings, but in all his doings must he be with Him. The church, the house where Jesus lives, ought to be a stronger attraction for every genuine Christian than any other house in in town, even during the week. Tell me where I can find you most often, and I will tell you who are are.
We want to be Christians again! Yet a little while, and we shall see Jesus. The Invisible will become visible. The hidden King of the tabernacle is Judge over punishment or reward for eternity! The great movement of decision over heaven and hell has come. What is heaven? The place of blessed happiness in love. It is clear that whoever does not know the great law of Christianity, the law of love between the Christian and Christ, cannot enter into heaven. Not want to love Christ, Who is Love, is the sins of sins! Whoever does not love will be damned. We want to become Christians again. We want to love again, love and die for Christ the King. (Father Robert Mader, Cross and the Crown, edited and translated by Dr. Eileen Kunze, Sarto House, 1999, pp. 92-94.)
It is because most Catholics do not know or accept this that men such as Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro are able to gain and maintain political power as the true American bishops of yore believed that all of the necessary "guarantees" to provide for "ordered liberty" were to be found in the principles of the American founding and in the provisions of the Constitution of the United States of America. This was a delusion localized to the United States of America until it spread like wildfire around the world, becoming the official "teaching" of the counterfeit church of conciliarism during the "Second" Vatican Council and in the subsequent "magisterium" of the conciliar "popes."
Then again, most Catholics are completely indifferent to the gross violations of the Ten Commandments that have been committed by those conciliar "popes," whose grave evils against the First, Second and Third Commandments have been
advanced by conciliar officials, making the advancement of evils in
violation of the Fourth through Tenth Commandments all the more
possible, especially when one considers the simple fact that the
sacramental barrenness of the liturgical rites of concilairism have
robbed most Catholics of Sanctifying Grace and have deprived the world
of a super-abundance of Actual Graces that helped to hold back the
floodgates of barbarism in the past. (See
Respect Those Who Break the First Commandment? Respect Those Who Break the Fifth Commandment.)
It is no wonder, therefore, that the cataclysms of
the present moment are taking place. We must remember what Pope Pius XI,
that great apostle of the Social Reign of Christ the King, wrote in Quas Primas, December 11, 1925:
Nations will be reminded by the annual celebration
of this feast 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
Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is trying
to get our attention, attempting to chastise us in the midst of our
naturalistic sideshows and bread and circuses and materialism to turn
away from Modernity in the world and Modernism in the counterfeit church
of conciliarism so that we can become apostles of His Social Kingship
as we exalt the Queenship of His Most Blessed Mother, Mary our
Immaculate Queen. Every Rosary we pray, every blessed Green Scapular we
distribute, every bit of suffering we endure with gratitude and with
love as we make attempt to make reparation for our sins and those of the
whole world as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary will
help to plant a few seeds for the restoration of the Church and hence
for the restoration of Christendom in the world.
The crimes of Modernity have been abetted and enabled
by Modernism's reconciliation with its false principles. Although there
will indeed never be a time of perfection in the world as human nature
is wounded by the vestigial after-effects of Original Sin and Actual
Sins, there will come a time following the Triumph of the Immaculate
Heart of Mary when men will at least attempt to live more fully in
accord with 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 exclusively to the Catholic Church and when civil states
will endeavor, albeit imperfectly, to foster those social conditions
conducive to the sanctification and salvation of the souls of its
citizens, recognizing that Catholicism is indeed the one and only
foundation of personal and social order. It is then that God will bless
our land, not before.
Men such as Daniel Pfeiffer, who is like William Jefferson Blythe Clinton before him, a graduate of Georgetown University, which is run by Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis's brother apostates in the Society of Jesus, may consider facts "irrelevant now." I can assure Mr. Pfeiffer and even Mr. Bergoglio himself that the truth of Modernity in the world and of Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism will be quite relevant at the moment of their Particular Judgments, a time for which we must prepare every single day of our lives, especially as we make that nightly Examen of Conscience.
In the meantime, we fly unto the patronage of Our
Lady as we attempt to live more and more detached from the things of
this passing world, as we seek to store for ourselves treasure in Heaven
by being know as the apostles of the Social Reign of Christ the King
and of herself, Our Immaculate Queen.
Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us!
Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!
Saint Joseph, pray for us.
