Some thoughts on the fake consecration of Russia about to take place tomorrow

As most Catholics will no doubt have heard, Bergoglio will allegedly consecrate Russia tomorrow the 25th of March, the Feast of the Annunciation, at 6:30 P.M. CET, I presume.

News broke on the 15th of March and I first heard of it from Kennedy Hall of the YouTube channel "The Meaning of Catholic". I believe he also does work for the Fatima Center.

Here was my immediate reaction after receiving the link from a friend:

If Bergoglio consecrates Russia and Ukraine then I am not sure it will be a valid response to the request. In fact, I fail to see how it can be.

I don't really know what's so difficult about doing what Our Lady asked. 

Russia means Russia, not Russia and Ukraine, not Russia and the world, not the world. 

Given that there are so many questions surrounding Bergoglio he is definitely not the right man to be doing this, but then again, God works in mysterious ways.

As my comments indicated, I was open to the possibility of Bergoglio actually consecrating Russia even though I have grave doubts about the man's character, Catholicity and office. I should have learned by now to never assume anything Bergoglio does is devoid of evil intentions.

As few days later, on the 21st of March, I learned of Bergoglio's intention to reform the Roman Curia, in essence abolishing it. He wishes to open up the Roman Curia to lay people, destroying what is at the very least proximate to Apostolic Tradition in the process. This was my reaction to that, writing in a group chat:

I commented  a while back of Bergoglio's trick of distraction and destruction in which he will distract with something which may seem Catholic one day then often within the same week do something which completely attacks the Faith.

I have now become convinced without any reasonable doubt. that the so-called Consecration of Russia is just another prop of the Bergoglio show, now in it's 10th diabolical season.

As Bergoglio has taken lessons from the secular world in distracting everyone from Covid-19 tyranny using the Ukraine crisis, Bergoglio uses the fake Consecration of Russia and Ukraine to attack the very essence of the Church hierarchy.

I have scoured my usual sources for information but nobody else but FrontLineTV seems to have picked up on it, which leads me to wonder where they got their information and whether Bergoglios bait-and-switch has worked....It turns out they got it from LifeSiteNews - their usual source.

In this short piece they explain Bergoglio's intention to reform the Roman Curia - in essense, destroy it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMPpxIefTIk

The only thing we need to take home is that Bergoglio wishes to laicise the Church's hierarchy. So no longer will one have to be a bishop or even priest to head a congregation or dicastery. All of them have been demoted in terms of importance and placed under the political wing of the Vatican, which now has ultimate power.

Intention is very important in the Church's rites, rituals and Sacraments. You are going to work very hard to convince me that the same man who wants to destroy the Church's age-old structure and hierarchy cares enough about God to heed demands from Our Lady.

Even if he had done it in the manner requested - which he won't - his intention is obviously deficient.

So while Catholics are distracted with what must now be considered a fake Consecration of Russia the real story of the week from the Vatican passes by almost unnoticed.

It's classic Bergoglio and I am frankly disappointed that I didn't already conclude when I heard of the fake consecration that there would be a far worse story lurking underneath the headlines. He has done this so many times.

The good thing is that if you're been looking for dicasteries run by pink-haired Muslim lesbian transgender nuns, you might soon get lucky.

For ordinary Catholics though, this is absolutely horrible news.

It is, in essence, turning the Church's structures into just another bureaucratic arm of the U.N. agenda. 

This is the true Catholic news story of the hour, not the fake consecration which is currently garnering headlines.

The comment I had made a while back eluded to the Bergoglian tactic of saying something Catholic on Monday then something heretical by Thursday, for instance - although he normally course corrects back to heresy within the week. The semi-Catholic thing remains in the news while the Thursday statement is typically ignored.

I stand by those words. Whenever Bergoglio says something Catholic you can be sure that within a week he will say something horrendous, as this episode proved. Bergoglio is now using Our Lady as a prop in his circus act which is the Bergoglian papacy.

More proof of this was to come as the very next day, the 22nd of March, we learnt that he wasn't even going to consecrate Russia, but "humanity, especially Russia and Ukraine", to which I again responded:

So the fake consecration of Russia is not even a fake consecration of Russia and Ukraine, but of "humanity, especially Russia and Ukraine". 

Well, at least he manages to squeeze Russia in there somewhere.

So much for what I have written elsewhere thus far.

We have seen over the past 9 years of this demonic pontificate that Bergoglio has no respect for Christ, no respect for the Holy Family, no respect for Sacred Tradition, the teachings of the Church and in fact even a general God, never mind The Holy Trinity. That he would stoop so low as to invoke Our Lady as a prop to obscure the real story of the day, which is his Roman Curia reforms, makes him just as loathsome as they come. 

Yet I cannot help but see that people are spending column inches on this fake consecration of Russia which even on its face is not even that. It is difficult to understand how anybody can be fooled by...

Reality strikes back! The real Ukraine invasion came a week later

As most will no doubt be aware by now, Russia launched a "specialy military operation" in Ukraine on the 23rd of February. Most of us would call it simply an invasion. This came a week after the official invasion date pronounced by the U.S., which was supposed to be the 16th of February.

I must admit that I thought the news of the invasion was a hoax. I am not, however, completely willing to abandon that idea. 

Russia has large military drills on its Western flank every year, almost always in conjunction with Belarus. Every time they have had those drills over the past few years the West has warned of an invasion but nothing has come of it. Of course, it could be that they had been plotting an invasion all this time, and I cannot rule that out. 

However, when I look at how the U.S. officials were behaving before this happened, it's difficult to conclude that even they saw talk of a Russian invasion as anything else than a way for Biden to play tough on Russia for an invasion which they were convinced would never come. If you had wanted Russia to invade Ukraine, you would have done exactly everything that the Biden administration and NATO did prior to the 23rd of February. 

Russia had very clear lines and since I have been following the Ukraine situation for a long time, I think I can pretty much narrow it down to these two:

  • Ukraine must not be a member of NATO or host NATO weapons systems.
  • Ukraine must not attempt to take the Donbass by force.
Any violation of these two conditions are red lines which Russia had said would result in a military solution. Well, all the rhetoric prior to the invasion was of Ukraine some time later perhaps entering NATO and that Russia should not get to decide who was to be in NATO. Then they decided to ship massive amounts of lethal weapons to Ukraine under the cover of repelling a Russian invasion.
 
On top of that it is now very obvious that Ukraine had a lot of forces surrounding the Donbass region and that there had been a military escalation there with preparations to retake the areas. This would explain why Ukraine doesn't seem to have had any forces defending its border with Belarus.
 
The real trigger for me was when Zelensky in the weekend before the Ukraine invasion whent to the Munich Security Conference and more or less demanded that Ukraine should be allowed to join NATO, or else they would develop nuclear weapons. As soon as he said that I felt sick in my stomach. I realised things were looking ugly and given that shelling in the Donbass by that point had increased 6-fold over the previous weeks, it seemed to me as though we had crossed aline.
 
When Vladimir Putin then recognised the break-away republics I thought that might offer some respite, but the shelling continued. On top of that, the West responded with the most ridiculous sanctions to that event to the point where if I was a Russian leader I may well have wondered "what is the point of holding back now"?
 
We shall never know whether the invasion was planned all along, but all I can write and say is that had one wanted an invasion of Ukraine by Russia, one could hardly have done more to bring it about than what the puppet rulers of the West and the Ukrainian leadership did in the run-up to the war.
 
Now that the war has started, I think the military result is a foregone conclusion. It will either be a relatively quick Russian victory or if others intervene, possibly a world war.
 
I hope for the latter, for the sake of Ukrainians and all the world, and hope to have more to write on this later.

What is certain is that the fantasy of the West, of their non-existent-in-practice values, has met the reality of Russian weapons and been found to be nothing but a castle built on sand - or perhaps that should read quick sand.

It's Ukraine invasion day!

According to the U.S. and the U.K. governments, and media all around the world, Russia is going to invade Ukraine, or Russia has been invading Ukraine, or Russia had planned to invade Ukraine. It's hard to keep up with the narrative since they have been warning of an "imminent" invasion of Ukraine by Russia for 2 months now.

Some 2 days ago Zelensky - the Ukrainian 'president' - released a video informing us that from what he had been briefed - presumably by Biden - Russia was going to invade on Wednesday the 16th of 2022, which is today. As I write this it is just before 11:00 AM Central European Time and so far there is no evidence of an invasion. Then again, they didn't tell us at which time the Russians would roll into Ukraine, and whether it would be Moscow time, Berlin time, UCT  or whatever, so I suppose we have to wait until midnight Hawaii time to be sure that Russia is not going to invade. 

I have maintained throughout this whole episode that the Russian invasion of Ukraine was in fact the Ukraine invasion hoax. The Russians have military drills every year, and every time they have them the media in the West warns of an imminent invasion of this or that territory. So it is this time as well, with the Russians holding military exercises with Belarus, from which they have begun to withdraw since the military drills are coming to an end.

As to why the U.S. and ther U.K. lap dogs decided to push this story, I can think of several reasons:

  • Biden has failed in everything he has done so far and it is not looking good for his party, so he had to claim some sort of victory. 
  • The easiest sort of victory is one in which all of Washington and the U.S. can join in, and that is demonising Russia.
  • So Biden and his team make up a story of a Russian invasion, then prance around saying how tough sanctions will be if Russia invades, and when Russia doesn't invade - as it had never intended to do - they can claim that it was because the U.S. was tough.
  • Nobody has ever lost money betting on the smartness of the Republican party, so even though they could have exposed this as the sham it was, one should have known beforehand they would bark even louder than the Democracts have done.
  • In the U.K., Boris needs to divert attention away from his many domestic scandals, so he flies around Europe talking up the invasion.
  • The media, true to self, fails to question any part of this hoax and just regurgitates the lies.
  • When all is said and done, the U.S. says that the only reason Russia didn't invade is because of the tough talk and how this shows the need to impose more sanctions on Russia so that they don't contemplate invading again.

All the while I thought this had more to do with the U.S. elections later in 2022 but something the Ron Paul Liberty Report mentioned has made me think that perhaps this all has to do mainly with Germany and the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. 

Now, Russia already provides Germany with a large chunk of its energy through various pipelines, including the original Nord Stream pipeline. However, the Nord Stream 2 pipeline has the ability to take these deliveries away from hostile territories - Poland and Ukraine - and leave Germany and Russia free to trade unmolested by the U.S. and its puppets, and over time forge closer ties. This must strike fear into the hearts - if they have any - of U.S. neocons so they are willing to do anything to stop it.

After all, if Germany and Russia get along, soon people will be asking what the U.S. is doing having forces in Europe. It might not be long before people start calling them what they really are - occupying forces.

It seems that the 21st century is the century of hoaxes. Virtually all major events this century have been as a result of hoaxes. They - the powers that shouldn't be - have given up on false flags, it seems, and seem to have concluded that since they control the media, they can just make stuff up and not even be bothered fabricating falsehoods on the ground.

The Ron Paul Liberty Report titled their show yesterday "US Credibility Collapse: Russian Troops Returning After Exercises...Like They Said". I agree with them, except I don't think the U.S. has any credibility left to lose.

Anyway, we'll have to wait until midnight Hawaii time to know whether the U.S. was telling the truth for once, or whether the media was once again doing the only thing it seems capable of doing nowadays - pushing yet another hoax to advance a globalist agenda.

 

A lot of water under the bridge, but only variations on the same narratives

It has been a long time since I last wrote - close to 9 months. A lot has happened since then, but truly, it has been all variations on the same themes, both in the secular and the ecclesiastical worlds. The details may have changed but the narratives have remained practically identical since my last entry.

In the Church, Bergoglio has continued cracking down on anything resembling Catholicism, what with Traditionis Custodes in July and a response to his own dubia to the same document which made things even worse. Doubless I shall write more about that. On top of that the usual diet of heresy and insults. In other words, just another year in the Bergoglian papacy.

In the secular world, reopenings and emergence of 'new variants' whenever things seem to be calming down. The only true change from last May when I wrote last is that we now have forced injections introduced by Western governments, with others in non-Western countries following suit. The big disappointment has been Russia, where Vladimir Putin has been a massive disappointment.

Now we have talk of war in Ukraine - which I insist is yet another media hoax - and stories of even worse diseases coming from China - with no evidence presented of their existence. It does seem as though many in the bash China crowd really want to turn the clock back to 2019 and start the whole Covid-19 hoax all over again. I cannot understand why else they are pushing the story about hemorragic fever in China with not even the accompanying fake footage that we had in 2019 at the outset of the Covid-19 scamdemic.

As I have been mainly pre-occupied with keeping track of the Covid-19 lies, I have had little time for ecclesiastical details, and little time for much else. That must change as it seems as though the Covid-19 narratives are also shifting, and Bergoglio has intensified his attacks on the Faith.

There are large protests in Canada, and truck convoys have also sprung up in Europe, Australia, the U.S. and possibly even other places we have not heard about. 

There are rumours that Bergoglio will issue even more restrictions on the practice of authentic Catholicism by banning the Mass on certain Sundays - 1st Sundays - and Feast days, presumably. We do not have any details on these as far as I have been able to ascertain, but if we keep in mind a simple rule with Bergoglio, we shall not be shocked, and the rule is "the worse the rumours are with Bergoglio the more likely they are to be true".

In brief, there will be much to write about in the coming weeks and months, and I vow to make an effort to stay on top of things and offer commentary.

Meanwhile, I continue to insist that every Catholic has a duty to join in on anti-Covid-19 protests. We can also join in on anti-Bergoglio protests by attending the True Roman Rite Mass and avoiding the Novus Ordo pseudo-Mass. 

If we start there, then at least we are on the right side of things.

Every Catholic has a duty to join in on the Covid-19 protests

As anybody reading this will know, we are coming close to the 2-year anniversary of the supposedly first case of the supposed Covid-19 disease, which they allege is caused by the alleged SARS-CoV2 virus. That was indeed a rather strenuous sentence to read, but it expressed the sort of skepticism which has been all-too lacking in this whole distasteful episode.

Many of those who have not believed the lies wholesale have taken to the streets to protest, to the mockery of Bergoglio and the Covid-19 agents. Sadly the Catholic Church has a whole has not spoken out against the Covid-19 agenda, and on the whole, the NOChurch hierarchy has been a driver of this agenda and not an opponent.

Even the usually-reliable SSPX has not taken a unified stand against it, and some of the more official documents have been disappointing to say the least. While I can understand that the SSPX is not in as strong a position to oppose it as the Holy See, it is nonetheless disappointing that some of the messaging has been approving of the medical concoction which has been labelled a Covid-19 vaccine. They could at least have stayed silent if they didn't dare to join in the protests publicly. I certainly do not want to believe that some of the higher-ups in the SSPX could be so stupid as to believe there is an actual medical pandemic afoot.

I for one have joined in on many of these protests as we have indeed had quite a few in Sweden. Generally I do not believe in protests, at least not in peaceful ones, because I remain unconvinced that peaceful protests actually achieve anything. The only protests which work tend to be those which are either funded or taken over by other political forces aiming to take the reins in the country, Certainly, I am unaware of any large peaceful protest movement which has ever changed the policy direction of a country.

The Covid-19 protests are different, however. It is fanciful to think that politicians will change their mind on account of a small proportion of a small minority of people who still think for themselves, when these are protesting peacefully and when history has shown that politicians cannot even be moved by large peaceful protests.

Rather, the object of the protests must be seen first and foremost as those individuals who have misgivings about the Covid-19 agenda but think they are alone in doing so. It seems indeed as though the propaganda has had as one of its primary aims to convince people that everyone else has bought into the hoax, that if you do not buy into it then you are all alone, that resistance, even dissent, is futile. It is for the awakening of these people that I mainly go out into the streets to protest. Plus, I can have little excuse for not protesting in Sweden given the punishments I face here are puny compared to those protesting in places far more authoritarian - say Australia or Canada, or even Germany.

There is, however, another very important reason to go out, and that is because I as a Catholic must atone for the Church's - more specifically NOChurch's - role in this mass deception. The most unsavoury incident in this whole Covid-19 show was Bergoglio closing down the churches in Italy, even before the state had forced him to, while cafés and all maner of other places were still open. It would have been atrocious for Bergoglio to concede even had the state attempted to force him, but he did it without even that. In truth, it must be admitted that Bergoglio probably wanted to close down churches for a long time since eliminating the Catholic Faith seems to be the one thing that drives him on to all his other wicked deeds, but given that he did it while the Covid-19 rmedia oad show was hitting Italy, it allowed the world's press to write all manner of horror headlines. We all remember the many "this is the first time in X-hundred years that so-and-so has been cancelled" and these headlines could not have happened without Beroglio.

It is, I would argue, these headlines which helped propel Covid-19 into a mass psychosis.

I remain convinced, and have been so from almost the very beginning, that Bergoglio is the key figure in this whole hoax. We need Bergoglio taken out, and I don't mean to dinner. If we got a Catholic pope to replace Bergoglio, the Covid-19 hoax would end within a week, and then the NWO-agents would have to find another excuse to imprison mankind.

Of course, Bergoglio is not alone in this. I have also long held the belief - from the very beginning actually, back when I thought Covid-19 was real - that this agenda will only end when one of the national rulers loses his/her head, when heads roll, and I do mean that literally. At this rate, this will only end with the shedding of blood, and I don't even think it would take many revolutions for that to happen. If crowds break into the presidential palace of a major, or even minor, European country, or even South American country, and impale the president's head on the gates of the palace, that would send a strong enough message and the rest would fall in line pretty quickly.

The problem right now is that the rulers of countries fear the global elites more than they fear their own citizenry. When that changes, the Covid-19 agenda ends. It's that simple. However, they won't fear their citizenry until and unless they have an example to point to. Right now, they probably point to John Pombe Magufuli - the president of Tanzania who died under extremely suspicious circumstances - and think to themselves that they don't want to be Magufulid next. Well, that could change with just one popular revolution. Much like with the fall of communism in Eastern Europe, the...

How to say we are in a pandemic and mean it without being a liar

For obvious reasons, I have tried to downplay the supposed Covid-19 pandemic because there is no medical emergency, and in fact, never has been. Invariably, however, the subject will come up in casual conversations with Covid-19 believers and to skirt around the issue and be agreeable, I normally use the term "Covid-19 fiasco". It helps me get around the fact that there is no actual pandemic in medical terms, but still conveys that something cataclysmic has happened.

The other day I was in the shop, and I ran into an old professional acquaintance. As we had not met for several years, the first point on the agenda, naturally, was to catch up.

I asked about his farm animals and what he was doing and he did the same. He also mentioned that he had expected me not to be around, on account of a  plans I had previously. I then went into how circumstances put a spanner in those works, and I mentioned "the pandemic" as being a central aspect.

While it is true that the Covid-19 fiasco was the immediate cause of the cessation of my plan on the timescale I had intended, subsequent events altered conditions so much that my original plans become untenable. In other words, if anything, the Covid-19 fiasco spared me the trouble of getting out of a pretty bad spot, in which I may well have found myself had those plans gone ahead, and that actually may be the only positive that has come out of this whole fiasco. What I thought was a mere postponement became in the course of time a change of plans. 

Anyway, enought of that: There are not enough details on that story to juice it up into something interesting.

So, almost immediately after I had laid the blame on "the pandemic", I felt guilty, and even more so after we had parted ways. After all, anyone who knows me well enough to engage me in private conversation knows that I not only a Covid-19 skeptic, but a full-blown Covid-19 denier.

Below is a sampling of phrases which I think have probably worn out most people around me by  now:

"There is no pandemic!"

"Who's  dying?"

"Nobody is dying!"

"It's a hoax!"

Then I had to go and blame it all on a pandemic which is non-existent in actual statistics and experience. I felt a bit ashamed, but  on reflection, I thought to myself, "Was I lying? Is there really no pandemic?"

Well, as a perverted occupant of the U.S. White House once said, "It depends on what the meaning of 'is' is", because, of course, there is a pandemic.

We have today the world's greatest pandemic in world history, except it is not that of a disease killing indiscriminately, or discriminately, depending on whatever the lie-of-the-week is, but rather a pandemic of liars and tyrants who have been allowed to rise to power, enabled by a populace which will believe anything they are told by people claiming to be scientists.

There is indeed a pandemic. It is one of power-hungry politicians. It is one of dishonest at best, probably clueless, and at worst criminally nefarious scientists who would push us into a new world order ruled my misanthropes. It is one of a populace which will do anything the government wants so long as the government has scared them into believing it cares for them. It is one of media which will only parrot government narratives. It is one of corporations which will go along to get a piece of the cake, while driving their smaller competitors out of business. It is one of teachers who do not care for the good of their pupils and students. It is one of doctors who do not care for their patients. It is one of cowardice in the face of obvious lies. It is one of sinful sloth whereby people who spend hours on the Internet on trivial affairs cannot take 15 minutes to research the one topic which has dominated the world's conversation for the past 18 months from sources other than those which have been proved wrong so many times.

Worst of all, perhaps, it is of Catholic clergy who do not care for the souls of those entrusted to them. It is of a pope who is going along with this anti-God and anti-Christian agenda, and of bishops who, if they realise this, are too cowardly to do anything about it.

So there is a pandemic, and I don't even mind calling it Covid-19 because the term can be seen as the umbrella term for all these dishonest and slothful characters.

I have been accused of being argumentative to the point of liking argument for argument's sake. That is a mischaracterisation, because while I do not shy away from arguments, I canot recal ever engating in argument for contrarianism's sake. I do, however, generally attempt not to stay silent in the face of little lies, because big lies almost make use of little lies to craft grand deceitful narratives, and also because the search for truth is one to which Christians are duty-bound. 

Here though, I think I have found a way to seem agreeable while actually meaning something completely different, yet being completely truthful. 

Of course, with close friends and acquaintances, I am much more likely to confromt the major lies, but in passing, and where occasion does not afford me this opportunity, I realised, on reflection, I can now say that we "there is a pandemic", and not feel guilty about it, because it is true.

Truth will have its day and in time the real panedmic will be seen to be one of tyrants, liars, scientism on the part of the transmitters of lies, and sloth on the part of the recipients. Whether anybody will care for the truth when it comes out is another matter entirely as so many people have welded themselves to the grand Covid-19 narrative, and attached a pseudo-religious...

A review of my article on Donald J. Trump written on the eve of the 2016 U.S. election, previewing this one

I shall attempt to briefly review the article I wrote on the eve of the last U.S. presidential election in 2016, and see how my expectations of candidate Trump compare with president Trump. It was difficult to understand why I titled it "There is none that calleth upon justice, neither is there any one that judgeth truly...". However, it didn't take me long to realise that I was in the phase of titling all my articles after Bible quotes. That didn't last long, sadly, but I might well pick it up again.

The quotes seem to have been directed at the U.S. bishops, for their attempts to muddy what should have been quite a clear option between a candidate who professed a preference for very many good things and had no intrinsic evils in his campaign platform, and one who promised all sorts of intrinsic evils in her campain, with none of the goods that Trump had.

Everything I wrote about Hillary Clinton applies equally to Joe Biden, except with Biden we have the extra scandal of him being Catholic. He is, of course, not Catholic in any meaningful sense, but as he has not been excommunicated and was baptised Catholic, we have to live with the fact that he can identify as such, as indeed can Bergoglio. That is what makes both Biden's and Bergoglio's preferences for perversions and evils that much more condemnable, and damnable.

In the article was a list of top 10 reasons to vote for Donald J. Trump. He won the elections, as it turned out. I rather expected him to do it, and truth be told I am even more confident that he will win it this time, once again defying the polls which seem even more fake this time than they did the last. As little enthuasiasm as there was for Clinton, there virtually none for Biden. At least she had the novelty of being the first female presidential candidate. With Biden, all they can muster is "At least he's not Trump." I do not dismiss that those who hate Trump do it fervently, but it is difficult to see how it translates into waiting in line possibly for hours, and possibly in the rain, in order to vote for a man one more than likely finds distasteful. In just over a day or so, we shall see if the disgust for Trump among the anti-Trumper's translates into votes for creey Joe and his ghoulish running mate.

For full disclosure, I must preface this by writing that I am not a particularly big fan of Donald Trump, though I do find him amusing. I am definitely not a NeverTrumper, but nor am I an AlwaysTrumper. I am, however, a NeverBiden, and cannot fathom what would ever possess me to vote for a man as morally distasteful as Biden. In other words, I think I can offer a relatively dispassionate analysis of Trump's record.

So, what will follow is a walk-through of my 10 points with grades on how right I was compared to Donald Trump's actual record. Given Trump's erratic nature and lack of interest in details, it can be difficult to know just how much blame or credit we can give him for his record. Still, he appoints his underlings and signs off on the checks, the bombings and the priorities. His record belongs to him, and if nothing else, it allows us to see where his priorities lie, whether he has met success in his endeavours or not.

The points will be in bold text, with the score next, and the analysis below. Mind you, this is an analysis of how I predicted, or thought I understeood, candidate Trump's versus how president Trump has actually done. Of course, my analysis has do do with his campaign pledges, so it cannot be entirely divorced from what he actually pledged, but still, it is not a grade of how president Trump has succeeded versus some impeccable standard of perfection.

1. Donald Trump  is not a career politician. He is a man who has built a fortune on hard work and taking risks, and done a good job at it. In fact, he has managed doing what I would argue 99.999% of the world wants to do in a much better way than 99.999% of the world has managed. (7/10)

More of a statement of fact than anything else and hardly gradeable. I would define a career politician as someone willing to do anything and rid himself of any principle to get to the very top, regardless of whether it is good for his country or not. That would score a 0, so 7/10 means I think Trump has not behaved as a career politican would. Sadly, however, on many of the big decisions - big banking, military-industrial complex, continuing wars - he has toed the line of the political schemers.

He has still managed to incur the wrath of many of the right people, and often by being unconventional, so I'll give him a pretty high grade and conclude that I was right in claiming that he didn't behave as a career politican.

2. The man seems genuine. When he speaks, one gets the impression that he means what he says, and not that he is saying it because pollsters told him it would be good to do so. (5/10)

If Trump had not shut the country down in March, he would probably have got an 8 on this point. However, shutting down a country on account of a 'pandemic' he obviously did not believe was going around simply because he thought it more politically expedient to do so will in many ways come to become his defining moment - at least of his first term, if he should lose the re-election bid.

The one good thing about Trump is that he is not a particularly convincing liar when reading off a script. It has therefore been quite easy...

I for one was glad when Donald Trump 'got' Covid-19

So, it's about 4 weeks since Donald Trump 'got' Covid-19 and recovered from it within 3-4 days. Actually, the official narrative is that he tested positive for Covid-19 (and there is no reason to disbelieve that). As for what he had and didn't have, I dare not speculate. In any case, when he tested positive I was quite happy about it.

Of course, many leftists were very happy about it too, and wished that Trump would succumb to it. I was happy for entirely other reasons and never was I worried that Trump would succumb to Covid-19, a virus , which if it exists, has probably killed nobody in the 1 year that it has been around (according to the official narrative). Certainly, it is difficult to claim that it has killed anyone since escaping from Wuhan, and at this point everybody should be questioning what exactly was going on in Wuhan, because if it was a virus then it is not the same one that left Chinese shores. Let-s not get side-tracked: Wuhan conspiracies will have to take a backseat for now...

Anyway, I was happy because I was convinced that Trump 'getting' Covid-19 (actually, only testing positive) would help us get out of this hoax. When Trump actually checked into the hospital though, I was concerned for a while, but not on account of Covid-19. What worried me was that it was a perfect opportunity to get rid of Trump, perhaps through an experimental medication which led to unexpected complications. The U.S., as anybody who has followed it over the past 15 years has see, is a deeply corrupt country, and I don't put it past the power brokers to get rid of a sitting president through medical malpractice.

As it turned, out he survived the whole thing, so perhaps the U.S. is not as corrupt as I thought it was, or perhaps the powerbrokers deem Trump useful or whatever else; it doesn't matter. I suppose it was a good thing that he was taken into hospital, because it made the show a bit grander. Furthemore, it helped drown out Bergoglio's Tutti Frutti encyclical, or Fratelli Tutti as he has called it, since much of the world was occupied with the circus of Donald Trump's Covid-19 hospitalisation, and what a circus it was! When he 'recovered' it seemed the leftists were even angrier with him for it.

It certainly helped his campaign, I thought: "Now he will never have to wear a mask again", I found myself thinking. That was indeed one big positive from this as, apart from his flight back to the White House and the funeral of the hideous Ginsburg, I have not seen him in a mask since, and really there is no reason for him to wear one since he has recovered from it and is basically immune. But then again, the Covid-19 handlers tell us that one can be re-infected with Covid-19, which in a sane world would be proof that the tests are fake, but this is no a sane world anymore - and hasn't been for a long time.

On the horrible Ginsburg woman: The leftists, of course, largely wished that Trump would die from Covid-19, which some of the non-leftists claimed was distasteful. I found this attitude by those on the 'right' hypocritical. How many non-leftists, after all, had not long desired the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg? I certainly did, and I am not ashamed to admit it. The difference, of course, is that those not on the left do not typically proclaim their death wish in public, something leftists seem to do with gay abandon, for reasons I am likely to never understand. Perhaps they are under the opinion that appearing hate-filled is a good thing, and in their circles it has to be, since they do seem to compete on who has the most narcissistic rage going. 

The most amazing thing watching these leftists gleefully mock Trump for 'catching' Covid-19  was the notion that somehow Covid-19 would be deadly to a man who has the best medical care available to him. It is as though the past 1 year of Covid-19, with millions of positives  and allegedly only something more than 1.2 million deaths meant nothing. Mind you, these 1.2 million deaths include motorcycle accidents and probably not a few bullets to the head, and these numbers have not made a dent into the expected number of deaths ordinarily! I'll not even get into the absurdity of them excoriating Trump for not wearing a mask, as if a cloth on your face can prevent you catching a virus! These people really do believe their own lies, one has to conclude, or they go all-in with the lies.

It is only 3 days to the 2020 election and I have no doubt that Trump testing positive for Covid-19 helped him. He can now speak from personal experience - which voters typically like -, and as he urged people after leaving hospital, he has shown that this 'disease' or 'illness', or whatever it is, should not "dominate your life". It is certainly a positive message, and one which I hope will resound in more people than that of the 'dark winter' promised by Biden and his cohorts.

Indeed, death can be a great reliever, as in the case of the odious Ginsburg. Many of us wish that death will relieve us of Bergoglio, and have been doing so for quite a while, which absent a miraculous conversion is the only way out of this nightmare of a pseudo-pontificate. In Trump's case, he did not meet death, fortunately, nor was he under any threat. It has certainly helped the case against medical martial law that the most high-profile person in the world  - who was in the alleged risk group, elderly and overweight - got it and 'recovered' quickly. The downside is that Trump has turned himself into an ad for the medicine he claims helped him recover, but...

Let us pray for Dr. Ron Paul - Possibly the only principled political figure left

On weekday early evenings I usually turn on the TV to watch the Ron Paul Liberty Report. The eminent Dr. Ron Paul has his daily  weekday show and from Monday to Thursday he normally hosts it with Daniel McAdams. On Fridays it is mainly about economics and I sometimes tune in only for the first few minutes beucase much of the time it's about the Federal Reserve. While critiquing the Federal Reserve is a worthwile endeavour, it's certainly nothing as informative as the normal weekday shows, so I usually skip most if not all of it.

Nonetheless, I do take note of when the show arrives as I have the YouTube channel subscribed.

Last Friday it didn't show up and I thought maybe they had skipped it. The videos are released somewhat irregularly, at varying times over a span of about 3 hours so sometimes they will come quite late. There had been some storm in Texas over the past week - with one of the episodes being audio only as opposed to being shot in-studio - so I thought that maybe they had skipped an episode on account of this.

Then not long after I saw a bulletin of sorts from FoxNews regarding Ron Paul. He had been admitted to the hospital. They did not say for what reason, but they did state that he was hopeful of making a full recovery.

For full disclosure I don't watch Fox News much. The only thing I watch regularly from them are clips from the Tucker Carlson show, because he is at least much more independent-minded than the rest. Laura Ingraham is okay much of the time but not as interesting. For the most part Fox News - at least with regards to international news - is fake news.

One could argue that MSNBC is fake news for the left, whereas CNN tries to be fake news for everyone - although it is obviously a leftist rag at this point whereas Fox News is fake news for the right. None of them are reliable news outlets but if I must watch some U.S. mainstream television channel then it is only Fox News I can stand as they don't saddle me with sodomy propaganda for the most part anyway. 

Anyway, the news saddened and grieved me. Not long afterwards I saw a headline on Gloria.tv titled "Video shows Ron Paul suffering what looks to be a stroke during a live interview." That was really alarming. He had suffered a stroke during the broadcast of the Friday version of the Ron Paul Liberty Report and there was a clip of it.  Fortunately, one of the comments had a picture of him at the hospitcal with a thumbs-up sign. I was slightly relieved but still concerened, naturally.

Over the weekend I browsed through the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity website to see if there was any information on his health. There was nothing.

Then Monday came and I wondered if Daniel McAdams would host the show on his own, or if they would skip it altogether. At about 8:30 P.M., I noticed that there was indeed a new episode of the Ron Paul Liberty Report but I didn't view it until some time after.

Finally I dared to click, and guess what: He was there introducing the show as usual! I have never been as relieved or joyful to see a familiar face on the television!

He even started with a little joke: After introducing Daniel McAdams he asked him "Good to see you Daniel, How are you doing?" to which he responded that he was doing a whole lot better than a few days ago and Ron Paul responded "You're recovering too!". Then he moved on, looking even younger than he did before, talking about how when doctros are left alone they usually do a good job, then moved forward to the topic which has  mostlyoccupied them since February, namely exposing the coronavirus hoax.

Without a doubt Ron Paul is the most principled and greatest figure in American politics over the last 3 generations, I can confidently claim. He is an independent man whose utterances are guided by principle and not self-interest and his main cause is that of liberty.

Naturally, with him not being a Catholic much less a traditionalist, there are points of disagreement. However, if a fellow traditionalist like Daniel McAdams can give up what would otherwise have been a lucrative career elsewhere to stand by his side and fight for liberty, we can rest assured that there is much good in Ron Raul's platform and I would urge anyone who hasn't tuned in to the Ron Paul Liberty Report to make its viewing a regular occurrence.

Indeed, Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams are one of very few people who have come out of this Covid-19 fiasco with any credit, and in their case, with much greater credit than they even had before. They have not only been proven entirely right acout the Covid-19 hoax, but even more importantly, they have always been opposed from the very beginning to the notion that the governemnt has any sort of right to interfere in people's lives and to commandeer them and their livelihoods due to a medical emergency, real or imagined.

We should indeed pray for Dr. Ron Paul, even if he has recovered fully. We should first and foremost pray for him that he may have convert to the one Holy and Apostolic Catholic Church, not withstanding the fact that more wisdom comes out of Ron Paul than from practically all our episcopate in its entirety.  We should also pray that he can continue his campaign for liberty, because in these darkened times we sorely need his towering voice and tireless fight for freedom - the very freedom we need to serve God.

For now though, suffice it to say that I am extremly joyful to see him back to full strength and I...

The English Premier League is back again

So,the English Premier League for the 2020-2021 season starts today. It's only a few weeks since the season ended, on account of the suspension owing to the Covid-19 fiasco. It was gone for 3 months, which is about as long as I have gone without football since I started watching, but in truth it hardly need have bothered coming back.

Leftist virtue signalling is all the rage in U.S. sports right now, but before sports resumed in the U.S., it had resumed in Europe. The Premier League, as far as I know, was the worst offender.

During the first round after the comeback, for the first 12 games, all players knelt and had the 'Black Lives Matter' banner on their jerseys where their names should have been. This took me by surprise, to say the least. The Premier League has claimed in the past that political sloganeering is not allowed, and here we had a full-on political slogan.

It as so disgusting that I could not watch any of those first 12 matches. After those matches, the 'Black Lives Matter' insignia was reduced in size to a patch on the sleeve. It was still too much, but at least enough such that I would watch  my favourite team play out the season. As it turned out, the only positive was that Manchester Unitedi did manage to clinch Champions League qualification as they finished in 3rd place. Other than that, the whole 'Project Restart' as they called it, was a complete and utter waste of time.

There is much that can be said about the nonsense that took place, but perhaps the most aggravating thing is that the political elite in the U.K. who greenlight sports and entertainment and public thought felt that they would use the one thing many people turn to in order to avoid politics - sports - to force-feed them political ideology. No football fan surely in their right mind can still be a racist, not least because many of the top teams field players who are 'non-white', for lack of a better term. In fact, we already had a no-racism campaign for a while in English football called "No To Racism", with which surely virtually everbody can agree. It was a non-political statement.

The 'Black Lives Matter' slogan, however, is entirely political. In fact, not only is it political, but it is a U.S. political slogan used to enable all sorts of shenanigans during primarily election years. In fact, the BLM-movement seems to have little or anything to do with respect for black lives, and all to do with furthering crazy leftist agendas. 

Leave it to Britain to prove just how much of a lap dog it is to the U.S. that it would embrace U.S. political slogans for its most non-political events. The U.K. really is a basket-case of a nation, but more of that some other time. Suffice to write, I don't think I would last long in the U.K. considering how all-in it has gone on the suppression of free speech due to political correctness.

What if you don't think black lives matter? Well, too bad, you are not allowed to play football in the U.K. or comment on football. 

What if you think that black lives matter but cannot get behind #BlackLivesMatter on account of their homosexualism, transgenderism or the fact that it is a extremely unfortunate phrasing? Again, too bad, the U.K. is closed for that sort of radical political notion.

What if you think black lives matter but would rather use #AllLivesMatter? Again, too bad, because people may get offended.

What if you think "Unborn Lives Matter" or "Black Unborn Lives Matter" or "Palestinian Lives Matter", or "Syrian Lives Matter", or "Libyan Slaves' Lives Matter"? That is fodder for being sent to a re-education camp, or as they call it in England, "sensitivity training" or "diversity appreciation course". Any player who tries to have that on his football jersey or a vest under his jersey would be met with severe sanctions.

In other words, under the guise of caring for black lives, what the U.K. political elite is saying is that they can force-feed you with any political slogan, and designate it non-political, and you are expected to play along.

I started watching football in 1999, in the treble-winning season for Manchester United in which they won the Premier League, the F.A. Cup and the Champions League, in that order. Since then I have watched virtually every round of Premier League football. I have watched Manchester United play almost all their games, unless something on a list of extremely important events came up - something which came to include going to Mass. I had never willingly missed any match before say 3 seasons ago, when the Premier League introduced its sodomy round. In that fixture round, all teams have the captains' armbands in sodomy flag colours, while they also show banners with sodomy flag colours.

When the calamitous Covid-19 responce hit football, it disrupted my normal football schedule. The shutdown was supposed to be one month long, but football resumed only after 3 months. I had never gone that long without football and frankly, I didn't think I could. The Premier League and all sports leagues should have been desperate to bring everyone back since the shutdown showed that people really could live without sports for extended periods. Instead, they all seem to have gone out of their way to harass and repel decent people away from viewing sports.

The Premier League came back after a 3-month hiatus, longer than many people would have thought they could do without football. In truth, it really needn't have bothered.

In just over 2 hours we shall find out whether the BLM-slogan and other letist tripe will once again be force-fed to the watching public.  I hope it is not, otherwise I shall have to find a new weekend hobby, and limit myself to only watching my favourite football team, if eventhat....
