American Exceptionalism

In our manifesto, we write: When we champion the United States as “the greatest country on Earth,” we overlook the dark side of American history: American exceptionalism provides the rich soil in which militarism takes root. Militarism creates a convenient blind spot for the terrible costs of war. At its most bold, it dares and encourages young people to sacrifice their lives, and possibly their souls, at the unholy altar of the State.


Here it is from the horse’s mouth: Why America is Exceptional by Hillary Clinton

There’s always been something special about the United States of America. President Abraham Lincoln called us the “last, best hope of earth.” President Ronald Reagan said we are a “shining city on a hill.” And Robert Kennedy called us a great, unselfish, compassionate country.

I couldn’t agree more.

If there’s one core belief that has guided and inspired me every step of my career in public service, it’s this: the U.S. is an exceptional nation. And when you add up all our advantages, it’s clear we’re indispensable too—a nation all others look to for leadership.

America is indispensable in part because we have the greatest military in history, with the best troops, training and technology. And it’s essential we do everything we can to support our men and women in uniform, and our veterans.

America is also indispensable because of our network of alliances, built up with decades of diplomacy. Russia and China can’t begin to compare. Our allies amplify our power, aid our defense and stand with us in good times and bad, like when NATO declared 9/11 to be an attack against all its members. Walking away from our alliances now would be a dangerous mistake.

America is indispensable because we have the largest, most dynamic economy in the world. Our workers can out­innovate and out­compete anyone in the world. And our entrepreneurs start exciting new businesses every day.

Most of all, America is ­indispensable—and exceptional—because of our values. As Secretary of State, I was proud to represent our country’s commitment to freedom, equality and opportunity. The world looks to us to stand up for human rights, LGBT rights, religious and ethnic minorities, women, people with disabilities and people everywhere who yearn for peace. We challenge ourselves and other nations to do better. It’s why so many people from around the world want to become Americans too.

But with all of these advantages comes ­responsibility—we need to continue leading the world. Because when America fails to lead, we leave a vacuum that lets extremism take root, emboldens our adversaries and discourages our friends.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that people from other places don’t also feel deep national pride—and other countries also have a responsibility to step up and help solve global problems. But America has an unparalleled ability to be a force for peace, progress and prosperity around the world. And when we do, we make our own country safer and stronger.

So let’s never stop doing good and being great. Let’s keep America exceptional.

Putin and Christianity

Given that the psychopaths who run this country obviously want a third world war, with Russia in their crosshairs, I’ve added a new category, Russia, to see if we can’t counteract some of this war propaganda.

“Christianity and the Russian Orthodox Church has loomed large in most of Putin’s foreign policy decisions.” In this article in the Financial Post, Lawrence Solomon writes about Russia’s religious rebirth.

“Putin stands for everything craved by a country debased and diminished by 75 years of communism: A principled leader who protects his country from Western aggression, Western contempt and Western values…Unlike almost every other country in the world, Russians have rising birth rates and growing families; unlike almost every other country in the world, Russians are undergoing a religious Renaissance…Unlike the West, which has seen the abandonment of hundreds of thousands of churches or their conversion into restaurants, bars and entertainment venues, Putin has reversed Lenin’s legacy by restoring almost 25,000 churches that had been abandoned or destroyed under communism. Putin contrasts a decade West to a profoundly spiritual and moral Russia.”

The Rosary, War and Violence

The following was written by Rev. Emmanuel Charles McCarthy and is republished with permission. 



The Rosary of Mary of Nazareth, the Mother of Jesus, the Mother of the Christ, the Theotokos, like so many other aids to salvation offered by the Catholic Church and other Christian Churches, is an often misunderstood and grossly misused sacramental. The above “death-dealing weapon with Rosary attached” picture can be seen in countless variations over the last five hundred or so years. For example, something visually akin to it is to be seen  in the “yet-to-be-removed” stain glass window immediately to the left of the high altar in the Sacred Heart Basilica at the University of Notre Dame, shown below. This particular visage presents Mary in heaven, depicted in the upper left hand corner, supporting Catholics killing Muslims at the naval Battle of Lepanto (October 7,1571). Because  it was allowed to be taught in the Church that Mary, at the request of Catholics reciting the Rosary, gave victory to the Catholics over the Muslims in their mutual slaughter event of  October 7, 1571, October 7 was made the universal Feast Day Our Lady of the Rosary. in the Catholic Church.


Beyond Lepanto, over the last five hundred years the Rosary has been employed many, many times to help Catholics kill better than their enemies in war, and thus obtain homicidal victories for Catholics over earthly enemies. This erroneous and evil understanding of the Rosary has not only been permitted to thrive within the Church, but has also been fostered in the institutional Church over the centuries by popes and every rank of clergy. Everyone of these homicidal pious legends about Mary being on the side of and giving support to Catholics in killing enemies is spiritually fallacious. Neither Mary, nor her Son, nor the God of the New Testament leads Catholics or anyone else in violent victories over historical enemies. It is the evil of blasphemy, “giving dogs [of war] what is holy, throwing pearls before swine ” (Mt 7:6), to say or to teach otherwise, regardless of what office or status one holds in the institutional Church. By of such brutal abuse of the truth of the  Rosary by people high and low in the institutional Church, the Rosary—which is a genuine sacramental capable of being an avenues of a healing prayer to Jesus for the soul and the body, the mind and the heart, the culture and the Church— is all but spiritually inaccessible, for even consideration, to the vast majority of Christians in the world yesterday and today.

So hopefully to clarify once and for all on this Feast Day of Our Lady of the Rosary, October 7, AD 2016, the Divine Truth embedded within the Rosary, all that is necessary is to always remember Mary’s last words in the Gospels, which are the authentic public revelation of the Church: “Do whatever He (Jesus) tells you.” The Rosary is being radically abused when it is employed to pray for anything that Jesus never would have commanded or done. But, when employed to pray with Mary to Jesus for anything and everything that Jesus commanded, then it is an ineffable instrument for encountering grace, God’s Self Communication, God’s Life, God’s Love, God’s Power, God’s Wisdom and God’s living Word through Jesus, the Christ—with the help of the Mother of the Christ, the Theotokos.

Finally let us never forget, that the only Jesus that Mary in the Gospels could possibly be referring to when she speaks for the final time in the Gospels and proclaims, “Do whatever He tells you,” is the Nonviolent Jesus of the Gospels who teaches, indeed commands, a Way of Nonviolent Love of friends and enemies as the Way for those He chooses as His disciples.


From Kansas City, MO


Talked with a priest from Kenya regarding his homily at today’s Mass [Oct.7, 2016]. Our conversation lasted about 5  minutes until he said let’s end it until I read more about the context of the Battle of Lepanto. He laughed at me when I questioned that the victory should not be attributed to Mary. He said that I am the only one–no other scholar or church authority ever questioned that the victory be attributed to anyone other than Mary.



Prayer to the Blessed Mother for Victory

Mary, grant us the victory!” That is sufficient. The whole of the uttered Rosary to you Blessed Mother at Lepanto and at all other battles and wars is compact into those pregnant words: “Mary, Grant us victory.” Elaboration is not necessary. When you have prayed for victory, however, you have prayed for many unmentioned results which follow victory—which must follow it, cannot help but follow it. So upon the listening spirit of the Blessed Mother of Jesus falls also the unspoken part of your prayer to “Grant us victory.”


It says and must say,

O Holy Mary, our young go forth to battle – be near them! Be with them as they go forth from the sweet peace of their beloved firesides to smite the foe. O Holy Mother, help them to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with their shells. Help them, Mary, to cover the enemies smiling fields with the pale forms of the enemy’s dead. Help them, Our Lady Help of Christians, to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of the enemy’s wounded, writhing in pain. O Mother of Mercy, help our side to lay waste to the enemy’s humble homes with a hurricane of fire. Help us, O Mother of Sorrows, to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief. Mother of Jesus help us to turn them out roofless with little children to wander unfriended the wastes of their desolated land in rags, hunger and thirst, sports of the sun flames of summer and the icy winds of winter, broken in spirit, worn with travail, imploring God for the refuge of the grave. And for our sakes who venerate thee as our Mother and Mother of the Church blast our enemies hopes, blight their lives, protract their bitter pilgrimage. Mary, Queen of Peace. make heavy their steps, water their way with their tears, stain the white snow with the blood of their wounded feet! We ask  you to intercede with Jesus for all this, in the spirit of your maternal love of Him Who is the Source of Love and Who is the ever-faithful refuge and friend of all who are sore beset and seek His aid. Amen.

Dark Times Since a Dark Day










The 9/11 Memorial features exactly one piece of art that questions the official conspiracy theory about that day. Here is an interview with artist Anthony Padua, and some of his artwork shown above.


The New “American Dream?”


It ain’t what it used to be.

Leon Panetta spoke at the DNC over antiwar chants by protestors and said the following:

“I’ve lived the American Dream. My parents were immigrants from Italy. They came through Ellis Island, made their way to California, and opened a restaurant in Monterey.

I can still remember standing on a chair in the back of that restaurant washing glasses. Never could my immigrant parents have dreamed that their son would grow up to be Secretary of Defense of the most powerful military in the world.”

“Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Mr. Panetta is a Roman Catholic according to Wikipedia. But in addition to his state idolatry there is this:

“The university fails to mention that Panetta, a member of Santa Clara’s board of trustees, not only has a strong pro-abortion voting record from when he served in the U.S. House of Representatives, but was also the co-sponsor of the federal Freedom of Choice Act. Later, as Bill Clinton’s chief of staff, Panetta defended Clinton’s veto of a bill that would have banned partial-birth abortions.”

from CNA:

All American Catholics should get out of the Democratic Party now as fast as they can. It is now clearly the Party of War and the Party of Abortion. The prominent role of “abortion rights” supporting Catholics such as Panetta, Joe Biden and now Tim Kaine only serves to underline that fact rather than disguise it.

It is not certain yet that the Republican Party is a morally viable alternative but at least it remains pro-life on paper and of greater importance is the fact that Donald Trump has routed the warmongers and neo-conservatives who formerly controlled the levers of power. Perhaps now is the time for Catholics to migrate to this Party and fight for their beliefs and principles under new ground rules.

Assassination and the Holy Spirit

The following was written by Rev. Emmanuel Charles McCarthy.



This Sunday morning at St. Edith Stein Catholic Church in Brockton, MA, I heard one of the most abominable Pentecost sermons that I have ever been subjected to in my seventy-five years of Sunday Masses. The homilist, an ordained deacon of the Archdiocese of Boston, explained Pentecost to the congregation by telling an extended story on how the Holy Spirit guided Pope Pius XII to participate in a plot to kill Adolf Hitler. Pius XII was more than likely in cahoots with people who were trying to whack Adolph Hitler—whom he helped to become Chancellor—because he was in ongoing contact with Wild Bill Donovan and his OSS (the precursor of the CIA) during WWII, as his successor Pope John Paul II was in constant contact, maneuvering and contriving with the CIA through ongoing blacked-out fights between Washington and Rome by Ronald Reagan’s CIA director, and Knight of Malta, William Casey. (Any wonder why China refuses to let the Roman Catholic Church operate freely within its borders and keeps a close eye on the other Western Christian Churches? It is not Jesus it is worried about!). But such has been the history of Popes and the papacy for over a thousand years to this very day: political intrigue, espionage, war, the overthrow of governments, spying, moles, assassinations, propaganda, block opts, etc. In fact it is hard to imagine how anyone could be elected Pope today that did not have the CIA’s informal Imprimatur, as in times past the selection of a Pope had to be formally approved of by various European political powers.

Be that as it may, there is nothing in a Pope’s or the Vatican’s political cloak and dagger activities that is of the Holy Spirit, that is informed by the Holy Spirit, that is guided by the Holy Spirit or that is inspired by the Holy Spirit, if the Holy Spirit that is being spoken of is the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ, the Word (Logos) of God Incarnate and the Second Person of the Holy Trinity. There can be no contradiction between the Holy Spirit embodied in the Nonviolent Jesus of the Gospels who teaches by words and deed as the revealed will of the Father a Way of Nonviolent Love of all, friends and enemies, under all circumstances and the Holy Spirit of the Third Person of Holy Trinity of which each Christian is a temple and who lives in the Body of Christ, the Church, guiding and empowering it to live the Truth and fulfill the Commission it was given by Jesus (MT 28:19).

It is to fill a congregation with craziness and untruth to even suggest that the Holy Spirit guided anyone, including a Pope, to be an assassin in total logical contradiction of the teaching of Jesus in the Gospels. Father, Son and Holy Spirit are One, are simple; there is no contradiction within the Holy Trinity; there cannot be any contradiction within the Holy Trinity, amongst the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Holy is the same for each, is each, and the definitive, infallible truth regarding what that Holiness is revealed in Jesus. The God Jesus reveals to humanity is not an absurdist, revealing one thing as truth on Monday and the opposite of it as truth on Tuesday. What Jesus reveals about the Holiness of God is and must be the same on Monday, Tuesday and forever for the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. “Heaven and earth may pass away, but my words will not pass away,” says Jesus Christ.

What this deacon did to a captive audience from the pulpit at Mass this Sunday morning is being done Sunday after Sunday from pulpits across the U.S. with the approval of the Catholic Bishops, namely, the mad, illogical and clever militarizing of the minds of Christian under the auspices of “putting on the mind of Christ.” So, let me leave the final words on this evil—and it is evil because it is deception whether realized or not—to Pope Benedict XVI from is University of Regensburg address:

“Here I am reminded of something Socrates said to Phaedo. In their earlier conversations, many false philosophical opinions had been raised, and so Socrates says: ‘It would be easily understandable if someone became so annoyed at all these false notions that for the rest of his life he despised and mocked all talk about such matters—but in this way he would be deprived of the truth of existence and would suffer a great loss’… In the beginning was the logos, and the logos is God, and the logosbecame flesh in Jesus, says the Evangelist. The truly divine God is the God who has revealed Himself as logos and, as logos, has acted and continues to act lovingly on our behalf. It continues to be the love, agape, of the God who is logos. Not to act with logos, is contrary to the nature of God.”

Tyrannicide, like the mass homicidal slaughter of war, like burning Jews and heretics at the stake, contradicts the Person and teaching of Jesus, the Logos (Word) of God Incarnate—and by necessity logically contradicts any notion of Natural Law Morality of which the Logos of God, Jesus, is the Author. The Author of the Sermon on the Mount and the Author of the Natural Law are the One and the same Logos of God and therefore cannot be in logical contradiction of each other.
