The End of America

Some people call me “Dr. Doom.” This is probably because of my pessimistic outlook on some things. I understand. When the only nation you’ve ever known in life is destined to fail, and somebody tells you that, it can be a real drag. If I told you the Roman Empire was destined to fall, that […]

A Christian Response To The “Cancel Culture”

The above painting serves as a reminder to the Christian reader. As bad as things are, we’ve seen worse. There was once upon a time, near the founding of our great religion, that the world’s greatest superpower turned against us, persecuted us, captured us, and executed us for entertainment. The early Christians were mauled by […]

Turn To The States

There is a saying that “all politics is local,” and it’s most commonly used in the United States. The saying is often ascribed to former Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill (Democrat, Massachusetts). Whether or not he actually coined the phrase doesn’t matter. He was right, but not in the way he thought. O’Neill was […]

Bring Back The Confessional State

America’s Founding Fathers declared their independence from the Protestant King of England, and fought a bloody eight-year war to make it happen. It was a war of secession and insurrection. Normally, I would have a problem with the treasonous acts of the Founding Fathers, but in their particular case (rare as it was), I think […]

Rumors Of Insurrection

From the President of the United States, down to conservative pundits all over the Internet, there are rumors that a “false flag” insurrection event is about to happen. The theory is that Left-wing, agent provocateurs are attempting to incite “armed protests” by Trump supporters at the United States Capitol Building and at state capitol buildings […]

Trump’s Second Impeachment In Context

The Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, along with the Marxist-influenced Democratic Party, has announced they will impeach President Donald J. Trump on Wednesday (January 13, 2021). They have the votes. It will likely be done. Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, no friend of President Trump or the “America First” MAGA-Patriot movement, has already called […]

Convention Of States: The Only Way Forward Now

The disastrous results of the 2020 election have proved a few things. They’re lessons hard learned, but if we are to survive as a free people, we must learn them. The lessons are as follows… The Republican Party (GOP) is essentially dead. The “Republican In Name Only” (RINO) career-politicians have completely turned their backs on […]

Rigged Elections: There Is Another Way

The 2020 election is finally over, and the winner is….. (drum roll)…. CHINA! That’s right, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is the big, big winner of the 2020 presidential election. The Democrats, overwhelmingly beholden to the CCP, will soon control not only the Whitehouse, but also both houses of Congress, and if they capitalize on […]

No Man-Made Nation Can Last Forever

The above image will undoubtedly be disturbing to most Americans. Some will be inclined to laugh it off. Some will take it more seriously. If we look at maps of Latin-America (Central and South America) this is exactly what they look like. In short, Latin-America looks a lot like Europe with large land masses broken […]

Weathering the Coming Storm

No matter how you look at it, and no matter how things play out in the months and years ahead, the storm we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. Things are about to get very difficult for Faithful and Practicing Catholics in the days ahead. Whether it’s battening down the hatches, or boarding up the […]

The US Catholic Church Under a Biden Presidency

It now appears that Joe Biden is the presumptive winner of the 2020 presidential election. While Donald Trump vows to continue fighting election fraud, and I hope he does, for the good of the nation, it’s unlikely to salvage his presidency. Not only would he have to prove, in court, that enough ballot fraud happened […]

Election Day Postmortem

By now, most of you have seen the election results from last night, and you’re still wondering who the next president will be. The mainstream media says it may be three whole days before we know what the vote count really is, and weeks before the litigation is settled. In spite of all that, however, […]

Who Are the People of Praise?

Ever since the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court, she has come under relentless attack from media personalities, and political pundits, for her alleged membership in the “dark and mysterious cult” called the ‘People of Praise’ (POP). So what are the ‘People of Praise?’ Are they a cult? I’ll address […]

Democrats Say: “The Only Good Catholic is a Lapsed Catholic”

The only Good Catholic is a Lapsed Catholic. That’s what the Democrats believe. That’s what they preach. That’s what they demonstrate. And this has been going on for a very, very long time. It’s just now center stage for the first time in a heat of a presidential election. So many Catholics (otherwise clueless on […]

There are Only Two Types of Catholics: Practicing and Lapsed

Words matter, and I think we’ve reached a point in US Catholic history, perhaps long ago, where we really need to start thinking about our vocabulary. There are many different rites, forms, uses and jurisdictions in the Catholic Church. There are Roman Catholics, Byzantine Catholics, Maronite Catholics, Coptic Catholics, English Patrimony Catholics, Franciscans, Dominicans, Benedictines, […]

We Need a Convention of States

As of today, conventional wisdom is predicting more civil unrest in the days ahead, along with a spike in COVID-19 over the fall and winter, accompanied by the flu. In addition, conventional wisdom tells us the election may not be over on election night, due to the large number of mail-in ballots in many states, […]

A Catholic Understanding of the Separation of Church and State

The separation of Church and State, as defined by the Encyclopedia Britannica, takes on two main forms, classified as American and French. These two are similar, in appearance, but work toward opposite ends. The American form: “as implied in the Constitution of the United States, was supported by a tendency to leave to the church, […]

The 2020 Democratic Ticket is Insulting to Catholics

As a practicing and faithful Catholic, I find the Democrats’ 2020 presidential ticket insulting. Here’s why. Joe Biden is what we call a heretical or cafeteria Catholic. He says he’s a Catholic, and brags about his Catholic heritage, but when it comes to what the Catholic Church actually teaches on moral issues, he picks and […]

Could State Secession Happen Today?

Secession of the states has been a recurring issue, not just in American politics, but in international politics as well. Recently, we witnessed the secession of the UK from the EU in what was called the #Brexit. Prior to that, there was a failed (but totally legal) secession attempt of Scotland from the UK. There […]

How to Stop the Civil Unrest

The first thing we need to understand about these #BlackLivesMatter protests and riots is that they were years in the making. The second thing we need to understand is that they’re not all about racial injustice and police brutality. There is something much deeper at work here. The third thing we need to understand is […]

The Plan

In recent weeks we’ve seen a remarkable Marxist coup unfold before our eyes. What began as a credible public-health threat from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus, has been hijacked into an attempt by Marxist leaders around the world to seize control of the people, business and economies for the purpose of “restructuring” according to […]

Faithful, Cafeteria and Faithless Catholics

What is the real state of the US Catholic Church? Well, it’s not good, but at the same time, it might not be as bad as we think. I started to run some statistics based on the EWTN News/RealClear Opinion Poll of the state of the Catholic Church. I decided that the best way to […]

The Rise of Militant Catholicism and Rules for Retrogrades

The world has radically changed in the wake of the Wuhan Virus (COVID-19) and with it the Catholic Church has changed too. The worldwide quarantine, of both the sick and the healthy, has spawned the birth of something new. Or maybe I should say the rebirth of something very old. The rise of Militant Catholicism […]

Globalism is Dead – Long Live Patriotism

Globalism is dead. It was on its way out since 2016, with the passage of the Brexit Referendum in the UK and the election of President Donald J. Trump in the US. However, the final nail in the coffin was the Wuhan Virus (COVID-19), the Coronavirus pandemic, also known as the “Chinese Virus” or #WuFlu. […]

An Episcopal Challenge for Elections

This is a friendly challenge, and a recommendation, to all individual American bishops who care about the spiritual safety of their flocks. Some of you may be aware that the US Bishops Voters Guide, Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship, is a complete flop among the laity. There are multiple reasons for this. First, it’s too […]

A Winning Strategy for Catholic Americans

Faithful Catholics and American Patriots now find themselves on the same team, fighting against a cabal of Modernism, Marxism and Globalism that really and truly is hell-bent on world domination. Unlike the Soviet Union or the Nazi Third Reich, this cabal is not planning the military overthrow of Western Civilization, but rather a subversive and […]

Distributed Capitalism: A Catholic Economic Proposal

As a Faithful Catholic, I take the traditional Catholic teaching on economics seriously, starting with Rerum Novarum from Pope Leo XIII in 1891, and culminating (I believe) in Pope St. John Paul II’s centennial anniversary encyclical on Rerum Novarum with Centesimus Annus in 1991, followed with his epic teaching on life and family in Evangelium Vitae […]

The Coming Storm and How to Prepare

I originally wrote the following essay on October 17, 2016. Though the election is long since over, it seems even more relevant now… A storm is approaching. We’ve been watching it build on the horizon for decades, and now it’s here. The first sprinkles of rain have already hit us, and with the wind now […]

Galileo Revisited — On Climate Change

Galileo Galilei was born in February of 1564 and died in is home in January of 1642. He was 77 years old, which is quite a long life for that time period. Life expectancy in Europe during that time period was between 30 to 40 years. Galileo lived to nearly double the maximum life expectancy, […]

My Thoughts on Pope Francis

In a recent jet-presser at 30,000 feet, Pope Francis commented that he felt “honored” that some traditional-Catholic Americans were attacking him. Why does this not surprise me? It seems obvious to me that he doesn’t care for those Catholic Americans who consider themselves “orthodox” or “traditional.” On the flip side, I think it’s fair and […]
