Our Slave Drivers Are In Liberation Mode Again

by Thomas A. Droleskey

[1] And there came to him the Pharisees and Sadducees tempting: and they asked him to shew them a sign from heaven. [2] But he answered and said to them: When it is evening, you say, It will be fair weather, for the sky is red. [3] And in the morning: Today there will be a storm, for the sky is red and lowering. You know then how to discern the face of the sky: and can you not know the signs of the times? [4] A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign: and a sign shall not be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet. (Matthew 16: 1-4.)


Although it may be hard to believe, we are only sixty-five days away from the tenth anniversary of the unjust and immoral invasion of Iraq by the military forces of the United States of America and its "coalition partners" in order to effect "regime change" in that country as a means of "liberating" Iraq and destroying its alleged stockpiles of "weapons of mass destruction" that did not exist.

Our slave drivers have sought to accustom us to "endless war" in the past eleven years, three months, eight days since American bombs first began falling on the mountainous inland fortress known as Afghanistan.

All manner of stories were fabricated in order to justify the continuation of the war in Afghanistan that has done nothing but prop up the corrupt Bag Man in a Karakul Hat, Hamid Karzai, who has lined his own filthy pockets with countless billions of our taxpayer dollars. Countless billions. To do what? To help subsidize the American and multinational military-industrial complex and to bankroll private American contractors, who have specialized in rebuilding the national infrastructure in Afghanistan and in Iraq in such a shoddy manner that more billions have had to be paid out to replace what had been rebuilt after the devastation wrought by American military firepower. Our slave drivers simply keep selling us the same old snake poison that we are fighting a "global war" against terrorism even though none of our own Simon Legrees and Jonas Wilkersons can tell us what constitutes "victory" in this global war.

We are supposed to ignore the inconvenient little fact that Saddam Hussein was replaced by equally corrupt nogoodniks while the Iraqi borders became a sieve for all manner of Iranian-armed and financed "volunteers" to enter that country in order to attack the American military troops and contractors who should never have put in harm's way there in the first place as there was no moral or geopolitical justification for the American invasion, something that I pointed out in the Fall of 2002 during the run-up to the Iraq War in The Real Enemies Are Within, part 1; and The Real Enemies Are Within, part 2. And what has gone almost entirely without comment on the part of our slave drivers in Washington, District of Columbia, is the devastation that the unjust and immoral American invasion and occupation of Iraq has had on the Chaldean Rite Catholics and the Orthodox Christians there.

A secular commentator in the United Kingdom noted this a few weeks ago:


The line about the American general meeting the Arab Christian isn't as familiar as it should be. "When did your family convert?" the general asked. "About 2,000 years ago," the Arab answered wryly.

The general's ignorance is widely shared. Take but one example from closer to home. Over-zealous teachers in London have recently been pulling Syrian Orthodox refugees out of school assemblies in London, on the basis that Arab children must by definition be Muslims. The truth, of course, is that Christianity is an import from the Middle East, not an export to it. Christians have formed part of successive civilisations in the region for many centuries – they were, as Rowan Williams has pointed out, a dominant presence in the Byzantine era, an active partner in the early Muslim centuries, a long-suffering element within the Ottoman empire and, more recently, "a political catalyst and nursery of radical thinking in the dawn of Arab nationalism".

Today, though, the religious ecology of the Middle East looks more fragile than ever, as the Arab spring gives way to Christian winter. Ignorant western assumptions about cultural uniformity are mirrored by Islamists bent on purging other faith groups from their lands. Such intolerance has grown steeply since 9/11 of course, but its roots long predate the disastrous policies of George W Bush.

In Egypt, large numbers of Coptic Christians have moved abroad in response to a tide of discrimination and outright oppression. Though still numbering at least 5.1 million of an 80 million-strong population (according to government estimates disputed by the Coptic church), Copts face many professional glass ceilings, and scores of their churches have been attacked by Salafist extremists. About 600,000 Copts – more than the entire population of Manchester – have left their homeland since the early 1980s. If Mohamed Morsi's new constitution is implemented, the second-class status of Christians will be set in stone. Egypt will stagnate still further in consequence.

The catastrophe faced by Iraq's Christians is more widely recognised in the west, partly because of the media spotlight on individual tragedies, such as the storming of Baghdad's Syrian Catholic cathedral two years ago. More than 50 people were killed, and scores of others maimed, when al-Qaida-linked militants hurled grenades into the building before shooting worshippers at random. In 1990 there were between 1.2 and 1.4 million Christians in the country. Today, it is estimated that fewer than 500,000 remain.

The current conflict in Syria has placed Christians in the eye of yet another storm. Despite its brutality, the Assad regime guaranteed freedom of worship to minorities before the outbreak of civil war. This year, though, tens of thousands of Christians have fled from cities such as Homs and Qusayr in the face of Islamist rebels. The traditional Christmas market and lights in Qatana are now things of the past, because Islamist militias want all traces of Christian life to be erased. Their threats are anything but idle. On 25 October, Father Fadi Haddad, parish priest of St Elias's Greek Orthodox Church in the town, was found dead beside a road near Damascus. He'd been abducted several days beforehand after seeking to negotiate with the kidnappers of a local Christian dentist.

Even in notionally progressive Middle Eastern societies such as Turkey, anti-Christian discrimination is extensive, and "apostates" – former Muslim converts to Christianity or other faiths – face heavy penalties. Elsewhere in the Muslim world, this problem is yet more severe. The apostate is at real risk of death in Saudi Arabia and Iran. In Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and Yemen, apostates risk punishments including the loss of property and the annulment of a marriage, "honour" killings by family members, detentions, imprisonment, torture and physical intimidation.

Why is all this so under-reported? This answer is simple: Christians rank low in an unacknowledged hierarchy of victimhood. Young Christians in the west don't become radicalised in support of their fellow believers, and persecuted Christians rarely respond with terrorist violence. This also tends to render their plight less newsworthy in the media eyes.

The truth about religious oppression – that it is Christians who are targeted in greater numbers than any other faith group on earth – thus comes as a surprise to many. A survey from 2007 found that some 200 million believers, or 10% of the global total, are threatened by discrimination or harassment or outright violence. The problem extends well outside Islamic countries to include India, the communist world, and even to Buddhist-majority societies such as Burma and Sri Lanka. (In the Middle East, the Arab spring has given way to a Christian winter.)

Although the writer of the article quoted just above, Russell Shortt, concluded his commentary with an elegy of praise in behalf of "religious liberty," which is, obviously, displeasing to God and destructive of social order, he did make apt observations about the extent of persecution of Christians taking place in the world without a word of protest from our own slave drivers here. No, there is no talk of "crimes against humanity" being committed by Mohammedans and Buddhists and Hindus and others against Catholics and Orthodox Christians. There is only talk of "crimes against humanity" committed by those speaking out against the chemical and surgical execution of the innocent preborn and against the public promotion and legal protection accorded those who are inclined to the commission of the sin of Sodom.

Our slave drivers, whether they belong to the false opposite of the naturalist "left" or of the naturalist "right," Far from "stabilizing" the Middle East, the unjust and immoral American invasion and occupation of Iraq, undertaken to make that region safe for the leaders of Israel who serve as the slave drivers of our own slave drivers here in the United States of America, has made the entire Middle East and North Africa less stable and less secure than before. Demonic forces have been let loose in lands populated by overwhelming majorities of citizens whose souls are captive to the devil by means of Original Sin, making them more inclined to the commission of acts of violence against those they hate and/or blame for social problems.

The demonic forces let loose by the American effort to "stabilize" the Middle East for the State of Israel has exploded in the face of our own American slave drivers as events have spiraled out of control in Tunisia, Yemen, Syria, Egypt and, most famously, Libya, whose "liberated" people have been armed to the teeth by our own weaponry, some of which, was used against our own citizens on September 11, 2012, prompting a massive cover-up of the truth by American officials that is a yet ongoing and that has done nothing to tarnish the population of our Slaver-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, and his outgoing Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, who are, respectively, the first and second most admired people in the United States of America (see Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama Most Admired in 2012). Kill the truth of the Fifth Commandment? Why not kill the truth about everythin

After over eleven years of war in Afghanistan and nearly ten years after the American invasion and occupation and Iraq--and in the immediate aftermath of the so-called "Arab Spring" that has gone haywire, another "multinational coalition," this time led by the forces of the Republic of France, is attempting to drive out Mohammedan terrorists in the African country of Mali:

The Pentagon is preparing to provide military support to French forces in their new fight against rebel militants in northern Mali, according to senior defense officials.

The U.S. is considering a range of options to help, including sending cargo aircrafts to lift more French ground troops into Mali, providing air refueling tankers for French air combat patrols, and offering intelligence gleaned from aerial surveillance.

Fox News also has learned that the U.S. sent Special Forces to train Mali troops last year prior to the northern region of the country falling to Al Qaeda-linked militants. One senior military official told Fox News he was wondering "why they didn't get a better return on their investment."

Earlier Monday, Canada announced its intent to send a C-17 military transport plane to assist with the French campaign. The Canadians were careful to say their role will not include direct involvement in the conflict and that the aircraft is on loan for one week.

The French have had concerns in recent days that the whole country would fall into Al Qaeda hands.

The French, who see the destabilized region as a threat to their own national security, began to take military action in recent days to weaken the rebels. French fighter jets conducted air strikes over the weekend targeting militant camps and weapons depots

Currently the French have less than 500 troops on the ground. (US Preps Anti-Terror Forces for Mali.)


So much for the false claim of having "taken care" of Al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Iraq, whose leaders have, of course, become very chummy with those of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

War. Endless war.

This is the stuff of Antichrist.

Do not believe for a single moment that President Barack Hussein Obama/ Barry Soetoro's nominee to serve as the United States Secretary of Defense, former United States Senator Charles "Chuck" Hagel (R-Nebraska), is going to help end this madness just because he opposed the Iraq War and because he has spoken out against the control of American foreign policy decision-making by our slave drivers in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. This is all makes for interesting press and controversy. Don't kind yourselves, though. It's all a game. Every single bit of it. Hagel will do what his Obama/Soetoro wants done.

Sure, Hagel is getting "push back" from the neoconservative war hawks who helped to pave the way for the Iraq War with their letter to President William Jefferson Blythe Clinton on January 26, 1998 (see Longer Than World War II). He is getting "push back" from the lobby organization that runs foreign policy decision-making on Capitol Hill, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). So what? Hagel will be a team player. He will do what he is told to do.

There is so much madness in the world at present because the forces of hell have been unleashed with a great fury, something noted in yesterday's commentary, At The Mercy Of The Merciless. Former Senator Charles Timothy Hagel will see to it that those forces of hell continue to be unleashed by means of the United States Department of Defense's support for the Homosexual Collective.

Remember, he has already made a "mea culpa" for a comment he made in 1998 about the open practitioner of perversity names James Hormel who had been nominated by former President Clinton to be Ambassador to Luxembourg:

“My comments 14 years ago in 1998 were insensitive,” Hagel said in a statement provided to Politico. “They do not reflect my views or the totality of my public record, and I apologize to Ambassador (James) Hormel and any LGBT Americans who may question my commitment to their civil rights. I am fully supportive of ‘open service’ and committed to LGBT military families.” (Hagel apologizes for 1998 anti-perversity comments.)


No but one who supports any of the four sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance can serve as an instrument of social order or of securing the nation's borders no matter how much he may have criticized the policies of the State of Israel and no matter how much he opposed the Iraq War after he had first supported it, all the while remaining a supporter of the madness in Afghanistan and of the insidiously statist Patriot Act, enacted by our slave drivers to further clamp down on our own legitimate liberties while seeking to "liberate" other nations.

It is all a farce, ladies and gentlemen. A farce.

I know. I know.

This website has few readers.

I do not care.

Sinner that I am, I will simply keep trying to remind you that Catholicism is the one and only foundation of personal and social order. Nothing else. Man made catastrophes caused by profligate governmental spending and excessive taxation to fund unjust entitlement programs and unjust and immoral foreign wars threaten to bankrupt the United States of America.


[1] And there came to him the Pharisees and Sadducees tempting: and they asked him to shew them a sign from heaven. [2] But he answered and said to them: When it is evening, you say, It will be fair weather, for the sky is red. [3] And in the morning: Today there will be a storm, for the sky is red and lowering. You know then how to discern the face of the sky: and can you not know the signs of the times? [4] A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign: and a sign shall not be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet. (Matthew 16: 1-4.)

The signs are all there. The signs are all there. The signs are all there of a world gone mad absent the sweet yoke of the Social Reign of Christ the King

Alas, the puffed up naturalists of the false opposites of the "right" and the "left" refuse to read the signs of the times as they continue to believe that they can establish order in the world, whether of the Pax Americana or the Pax Internationale of Marxism, as they continue to foment grave evils at home and abroad by promoting and funding policies in defiance of the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law, thereby undermining both the temporal and eternal good of the souls for whom Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross to redeem on Good Friday. They continue to heap hot coals on their heads as they serve as the instruments of even more chastisements in the days and the weeks and the months and the years to come.

As I noted several years ago now, we must thank God every day that we are Catholics and can prosper under the crosses and chastisements of the present moment.

The Catholic Church, unlike the counterfeit church of conciliarism, speaks to us clearly about the fact that it is impossible for there to be peace in the souls of men and thus in the world absent a conversion of men and their nations to the true Faith that has been entrusted to her by her Divine Founder and Invisible Head, Christ the King, to be safeguarded and taught infallibly until His Second Coming at the end of time:


There exists an institution able to safeguard the sanctity of the law of nations. This institution is a part of every nation; at the same time it is above all nations. She enjoys, too, the highest authority, the fullness of the teaching power of the Apostles. Such an institution is the Church of Christ. She alone is adapted to do this great work, for she is not only divinely commissioned to lead mankind, but moreover, because of her very make-up and the constitution which she possesses, by reason of her age-old traditions and her great prestige, which has not been lessened but has been greatly increased since the close of the War, cannot but succeed in such a venture where others assuredly will fail.

It is apparent from these considerations that true peace, the peace of Christ, is impossible unless we are willing and ready to accept the fundamental principles of Christianity, unless we are willing to observe the teachings and obey the law of Christ, both in public and private life. If this were done, then society being placed at last on a sound foundation, the Church would be able, in the exercise of its divinely given ministry and by means of the teaching authority which results therefrom, to protect all the rights of God over men and nations. (Pope Pius XI, Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio, December 23, 1922.)

We turn to Our Lady of Prompt Succor on this her feast day. She came to the aid of Catholics in New Orleans during the Battle of New Orleans, fought about two weeks six weeks after the signing of the Treaty of Ghent that ended the War of 1812 between the United Kingdom and the United States of America, on January 8, 1815. Our Lady came to the aid of the forces of Colonel Andrew Jackson, a wretched demagogue of a man who was a partisan of the principles of the French Revolution and a Freemason who did not have a particularly high regard for Catholics prior to this time--and always had contempt for the American Indians, as he defended the City of New Orleans from the British onslaught while Catholics prayed Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary before the miraculous statue of Our Lady of Prompt Succor. Prayers to Our Lady of Prompt Succor had saved the Ursuline Convent in New Orleans a few years before.

Andrew Jackson, however, never converted to the Faith, remaining true to his "republican" principles to the end of his life. He witnessed a miracle, one that he acknowledged as such publicly and for which he urged Bishop William Dubourg to make a public act of thanksgiving, but was unmoved to convert to the Faith whose adherents had prayed for him to turn back the British military onslaught. Andrew Jackson's high regard for the Ursuline Sisters and for the prayers of the Catholics of New Orleans did not move his heart to convert. That is simply indisputable no matter his sincere display of gratitude for a miracle.

No matter the miracle effected before his eyes by Our Lady of Prompt Succor, Andrew Jackson remained a bloodthirsty hater of Indians, a man who engaged in a massive exercise in American social engineering in the forced relocation in 1831 of the Cherokees, Creeks, Seminoles, Chickasaws and, Choctawas from Georgia and Florida into what is now Oklahoma. Even his fellow Freemason and Tennesseean, United States Representative David Crockett, voted against the Indian Removal Act of 1830. Jackson's darkened, Masonic heart was completely unmoved by the cruelty experienced along the Trail of Tears and the deaths that it caused, evoking, of course, memories of the Grand Derangement of the Acadians out of Nova Scotia in 1755 (see Applause For Killers).

This is part of what Crockett wrote in 1834, three years after the removal of the Indians had commenced:

I have almost given up the Ship as lost. I have gone So far as to declare that if he martin vanburen is elected that I will leave the united States for I never will live under his kingdom. before I will Submit to his Government I will go to the wildes of Texas. I will consider that government a Paridice to what this will be. In fact at this time our Republican Government has dwindled almost into insignificancy our [boasted] land of liberty have almost Bowed to the yoke of Bondage. Our happy days of Republican principles are near at an end when a few is to transfer the many. (Davy Crockett on the removal of the Cherokees.)


Unfortunately for Davy Crockett, he did not understand that he was witnessing even at that early stage in American history the degeneration of a nation founded on false, naturalistic, anti-Incarnational, religiously-indifferentist and semi-Pelagian principles. He thought Texas was to be a place of refuge. Many think so today as well! Alas, there is no hiding place from the slave drivers. No hiding place at all.

Thus, no matter what anyone else might assert, if even only by implication, Andrew Jackson, though grateful for the miracle that provided him with a military victory at the Battle of New Orleans, remained an American slave driver of demagoguery and hatred and racialism in  his own Masonic right as mouthed the slogans of "the people's will" that he had learned so well from the pamphleteers who evangelized in behalf of the false principles of the French Revolution. His policies of social engineering have been followed by most of his successors in the American presidency, including the three immediate past presidents and the current occupant of the White House. When in doubt, "engineer" the world to suit one's ideological purposes. This is what Andrew Jackson believed.

Yes, let me make this clear: Andrew Jackson simply refused to do what many others have done in the face of similar miracles wrought by Our Lady: convert to the true Faith without delay.

It must not be that way with us. We must cooperate with the graces that Our Lady showers upon us to change us so that we can plant the seeds for the conversion of our nation to the true Faith. As I have noted before, it may not be within the Providence of God for such a conversion to occur. We must, however, do our work to this end as this is what is expected of us. True patriotism wills the good of one's nation, the ultimate expression of which is her Catholicization in every aspect of her social life and public policies without any exception whatsoever. Our Lady is the Heavenly aid sent us to by her Divine Son to help us in this regard. Why do we not trust in her serenely rather than worrying about the outcome of fraudulent elections that are contested by men and women who hold, no matter how sincerely, ideas that are inimical to the eternal good of souls and thus to the temporal order itself?

You want real change in your own soul and in our nation? Pray the Rosary faithfully and fervently and offer up everything in your daily life to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart as we fulfill her Fatima Message in our own homes, Enthroned as they should be to those same Twin Hearts of matchless Love.

The final victory belongs to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Be confident in that victory as we seek to work out our own salvation with her help in fear and in trembling.

The slave drivers of Modernity in the world and of Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism will be put to flight. Our Lady will see to that. Be assured of this. Be confident in it!

There will be a victory over the modern slave drivers, and it will be a glorious one beyond all telling.

Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!
