Someone who will remain unnamed but who is very influential in the State of North Carolina and now these USA put up my name as candidate for Mayor of Andrews.
“But Father George! Father George! You’re a priest! You can’t do that!”
Meanwhile, the Pope and the Papal States and now the sovereign City State across the pond… But I’ll let that slide.
Let’s say that I would be cancelled as a “rigid” priest by the Power-Cardinals stateside and in the Holy See, so that it would then be possible for me to go into politics. Not that I would make a living of that here, but as a sideline and springboard…
Here’s the deal: I wouldn’t even have to campaign to win this small town election for mayor with that particular endorsement of that particularly influential person. If that were known, it would all take on a life of it’s own, especially if I were a cancelled Catholic priest – cancelled for not compromising with Christ Jesus – here in this heavily Baptist area.
But, it is to laugh, and enough to send me down memory lane. My dad was mayor of a town fully 27 times the size of Andrews, and my uncle was the Fire Chief. It’s an honor for me to be mentioned in this way, you know, in honor of my dad and also my uncle. We’d all have a beer together over that and have lots of laughter.
His advice to me would be what he told me so very often in the last years of his life:
“Goodness and kindness, George, goodness and kindness.”
Andrews NC is just a tiny mountain village, but we always have the most outrageously wonderful and patriotic celebration of being extracted from that U.K. tyranny that would strip unalienable rights endowed not by any changeable government but by our Creator.
The show is just over the way but effectively right over the rectory. Although I still have the remains of viral pneumonia, I did do the blessing, and afterwards went back to bed. The doctor said I should do some small things, but then go back to bed. Doing small things, he said, will actually help the recovery.
Seeing every single day multiple instances of political hatred of America both near and far, this celebration wrought by good friends in the fire department was an encouragement, healing. There are really a lot of really good people in these USA. Remember, patriotism is a virtue. Saint Thomas Aquinas speaks about it at length as part of the virtue of piety.
It was a terrible fight this year to keep this tradition going, but we have the right guys to force it through. ;-)
That’s not true in all cities:
As a kid my dad and mom would bring me to MLB games, the Minnesota Twins in the World Series with the Baltimore Orioles, you know, Harmen Killebrew, Tony Oliva, Rod Carew… We did up the iconic tailgating, which at the time referred not to road rage but to partying down in the parking lots of such events with the back of the station wagon opened up!
As a family, we would also sit high up on the steep banks of the Mississippi in Minnesota to watch the 4th of July fireworks.
Had those fireworks been combined for a night game some 65 miles away, with me as a patriotic 5 year old eagerly waiting for the fireworks, only to have some elitist Democrat cancel the fireworks because of a noise curfew, well, I think I would have made some noise, and I would have made a lifelong commitment never to vote for any anti-God, anti-American Democrat, not ever, not even once. Never. I mean, they encourage the noise of screams of bloody murder, rape, arson, assault that we’ve all witnessed these past Summers.
The Democrats are not about politics. They wouldn’t lower themselves to that. Instead, they are all about subversive terrorism to rid these USA of the Constitution and the Constitutional amendments. They want to change USA to DSA, the Divided States of America.
Meanwhile, much stronger than any disgust about Dems and Deep State idiocy of our agencies and bureaus and departments, much stronger than any of that is an unfailing patriotism.
Our fireworks were an occasion to have a deep sense of family with these USA.
Our fireworks were an occasion to have a deep sense of gratitude for presently enjoying in some measure the unalienable rights endowed by our Creator. I was letting Hail Marys fly to heaven. It’s a good and holy thing to pray for one’s country. If they are things to fix, well, let’s have some prompt eagerness to fix them, you know, like ensuring a proper vote. Let’s begin with a prayer to God for America, you know, a prayer with Kate Smith:
So, no wonder Joe Biden is forbidding any emphasis on Mount Rushmore on 4 July 2021. I get it. No fireworks to celebrate the Constitution that celebrates God-given unalienable rights. Dems what all rights to be repealed, trampled upon, given to whom they like as an act of politically expedient condescension. No. I celebrate the free exercise of religion, the freedom to assemble, to speak freely even when that’s unpopular, the right to defend the innocent from the threat of deadly, already being delivered aggression, etc. Let’s see… that fireworks celebration… Ah, yes…
This is put up again because misunderstanding of the National Anthem is reported almost daily until today. Fake news continues. Let’s do some analysis.
O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner, O long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,
A home and a country, should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution. No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave,
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
O thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation.
Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the Heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: ‘In God is our trust.’
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
The lyrics were written in 1814 by Francis Scott Key about the Battle of Baltimore fought against the Brits’ Royal Navy in 1812. The Brits just wouldn’t let it go, and had to engage again, and so lost again, almost thirty years after the end of the Revolutionary War. The Royal Navy would enlist mercenaries, the “hirelings” mentioned in the third verse, and enslave Prisoners of War to fight for them as well, the “slaves” mentioned in the third verse.
Why do I insist on this having nothing whatsoever even remotely to do with black African slaves when Key himself was a slave owner who lived long before the American Civil War? Because of the purpose of the song and what it is describing, that is, a particular night of battle in the harbor of Baltimore against the Royal Navy in which hirelings and slaves were employed in the battle by the Royal Navy, surely other Brits or POW American military.
Even if a tiny percentage of these hirelings and slaves happened to be black Africans, possibly most recently from the United States, the mentions of those hirelings and slaves wouldn’t refer to any previous status of slavery, but only to the slavery imposed by the Royal Navy on any POWs. To win this battle in Baltimore, there would be no interest in going to, say, Mississippi, and killing hirelings and slaves. To hold that to be the meaning of the words is simply ridiculous.
This is the great feast of the Body and Blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ: Corpus Christi.
How to say it? It took me a little while to get warmed up. But then my inner Lion of the Tribe of Judah was to be heard. You know why? Because “Eucharistic Coherence” has a name, and that name is not being used. That name is the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God, Mary. If the bishops don’t look to her, directly, under the Cross, while they speak of “Eucharistic Coherence”, all they do will be in vain.
Meanwhile, happy feast day to ye all. Here are a couple of pictures of sessions of Adoration we had this morning along with Confessions and Masses and Last Rites and now… Communion Calls…
From FoxNews: “The head of the Vatican’s doctrine office is warning U.S. bishops to deliberate carefully and minimize divisions before proceeding with a possible plan to rebuke Roman Catholic politicians such as President Joe Biden for receiving Communion even though they support abortion rights.”
“Minimize divisions”? Let’s take a look at that…
Did the Dems vote God out of their party platform, dividing God from everything that happens in the world? Yes.
Do the Dems push maniacally to rip kids apart in the womb and after birth, dividing, shredding the image of God in the least of the brethren? Yes.
Do the Dems hate the elderly, attacking the Little Sisters of the Poor in their effort to assist the elderly, dividing the elderly from the care they need? Yes.
Do the Dems attack the image of God proclaimed in Genesis as male and female with family, thus dividing the image of God? Yes.
Diabolical? Yes. That’s from the Greek, meaning to throw apart, to divide. Division aimed at God and God’s image is diabolical. Do we “minimize divisions” when we not only ignore such diabolical interventions but bless them, consecrate them, proclaim them as holy, to be imitated, by giving Holy Communion to those who divisory in this way? Not at all. The divide is made all the greater between the saints and the malicious, between those who follow Jesus and those who attack Jesus both personally and in the least of the brethren.
In all of this it is very difficult to find anyone who speaks of Jesus. The “good” commentators will speak of “it”, you know, the thing.
They will be respectful, have right doctrine, but, really, it’s very difficult to find someone who will speak the Holy Name of Jesus, that in receiving Holy Communion, the Eucharist – you know, the thing – they are in fact face to Face Jesus, the Divine Son of the Living God, the Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception (she who had Jesus within her womb for nine months and did not rip Jesus to shreds with abortion).
Why can’t we just say Jesus? Why can’t we say that ripping kids up in the womb, kids who are the image of Jesus, and then receiving Jesus Himself at Holy Mass into one’s bosom isn’t consonant, and isn’t to be done, so that such horrific monsters like Joey Biden are to be flat out denied the reception of Jesus for the good of their own souls?
It’s pastorally sensitive to deny Holy Communion, Jesus Himself, to the likes of Joey Biden. Those who maliciously administer Holy Communion, Jesus Himself, to the likes of Joey Biden risk going straight to hell, even if they are merely any bishop, merely any priest, merely any Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion.
It’s pastorally sensitive to be divisive, dividing the likes of Joey Biden from reception of Jesus.
Jesus said He has brought a sword of division. We had better use that sword of division lest we be divided from eternal salvation.
My first duty as a priest is to be divisive since my first duty as a priest is to bring Jesus, the Great Divider, to His Little Flock, to feed the lambs, to tend the sheep, to feed the sheep, discerning with such divisory spirit just who is a lamb and who is sheep and not a wolf in sheep’s clothing. My first duty is not to feed the likes of this:
Letting the likes of Joey Biden receive Jesus in Holy Communion is to confirm him in being a wolf and risks sending him straight to hell. Those who maliciously allow that, are they not also risking going straight to hell? Are they not wolves in sheep’s clothing as well?
Where’s a real guard-donkey when you need one?
In following up on my priestly vocation from Jesus I agreed to be divisory with Jesus. I volunteered to be a guard-donkey of Jesus’ Little Flock.
Meanwhile, what the hell is that Jesuit guy at the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith doing? He is being terribly divisory, causing division. He casting all apart: diabolical. How ironic.
Now, having said that, am I liable to being smacked down by the very Church I seek to defend, as many priests are being smacked down at this moment for that reason? No, and neither are they. But it is happening to many. Let’s take a look at the law of the Church, the Code of Canon Law to see if I’m amiss on that:
Canon 1369 A person who in a public show or speech, in published writing, or in other uses of the instruments of social communication utters blasphemy, gravely injures good morals, expresses insults, or excites hatred or contempt against religion or the Church is to be punished with a just penalty.
Correcting even an ecclesiastical personage even of great rank, even the Holy Father, is none of that. Instead, it’s speaking with the pontifically mandated parrhesia (speaking the truth boldly, with charity, for the salvation of souls). Sure, the truth hurts for those who don’t want the truth. Sure, there might be retaliation from those who have great authority in lording it over the sheep, but that doesn’t mean they are either correct or are doing that charitably.
Canon 1373 A person who publicly incites among subjects animosities or hatred against the Apostolic See or an ordinary because of some act of power or ecclesiastical ministry or provokes subjects to disobey them is to be punished by an interdict or other just penalties.
Yes, well, we have to ask if individuals in the Apostolic See or an Ordinary are acting ultra vires, that is, beyond their powers, and so are acting as individuals and not legitimately with some act of power or ecclesiastical ministry. Charitable correction sometimes has to be harsh, as we know with John the Baptist and Jesus. And because some are in need of harsh correction there may appear to be animosity or hatred from the corrector, even when there is none. It is a supreme act of selfless charity to correct someone who is breakneck running straight into hell. Provoking people to disobey administrative acts that provoke sin is not disobedience. It is supreme obedience to keep people from sin.
This modus operandi which I strive to follow in sacerdotal ministry is to fly in the face of sin, and to disregard any order to sin. The objective is the salvation of souls. I have been ordered in decades past in far away places to give Jesus in Holy Communion to manifest pro-abort politicians and to manifest grave sinners who were members of those respective parishes. It ain’t gonna happen. I suffered the consequences, which were draconian, that is, diabolical, that is, divisory. I’m just trying to do what is right in natural law, the 10 Commandments, in Canon Law, particularly before my Judge, Christ Jesus, who will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire. Amen.
It just struck me that there will surely be an objection that to be fair in all things “political”, I would also have to refuse Jesus in Holy Communion to, say, someone like Mother Teresa of Calcutta, you know, to make a point that the Church is not siding with any political party (as if any of that makes any sense). No, no. It would be worse: surely the reprimand would be something along the lines of administering Holy Communion to the likes of freakish pro-abortion Joey Biden but then refusing the likes of a Mother Teresa, you know, because Mother Teresa is like, you know, “rigid.”
Is is the great Father James Altman who got me thinking on all this divisoriness. Many incidents in my priestly life come to mind where the actual world divisory was used. I’ve had people say that I’m precisely 180 degrees turned away from being a “man of consensus.” I can only blame that on the Lord Jesus, thanks be God our Father.
We are not to unified among ourselves mired together in the lowest common denominator, then calling that such sharing in filth some kind of unity with God. No.
We are to be united to God and because of that, with Jesus, we are to wield the sword of division, the eternal Word of God, in such manner that we are all crucified to ourselves so as live through, with and in Christ Jesus.
That’s the end of division and the establishment of true unity in the Most Holy Trinity.
Diocesan statement regarding Father James Altman — May 25, 2021 [with my comments]
“Fr. James Altman has recently made public the request from Bishop William Patrick Callahan that he resign his office of pastor of Saint James the Less Parish in the Diocese of La Crosse, Wisconsin, as well as his intent to decline the request. As a result, the Diocese of La Crosse will respond in accordance to the canonical process as needed for the removal of a priest from his office as pastor. [This will take a year or so. I have an idea! Hey Father! Come down to Charlotte Diocese. I think there’s a parish or two opening up mid-July.]
“During the past year, concerns have been expressed related to the ministry of Fr. James Altman, a priest in the Diocese of La Crosse. [“Concerns”? From whom? Marxists in a newspaper looking to sell newspapers, getting their facts wrong?] Bishop Callahan of the Diocese of La Crosse, and canonical representatives have worked to fraternally and privately address those concerns. The process has been pastoral and administrative with a desire toward a just resolution among all parties. [B as in B, S as in S. Explain your comment, Bishop, that Father Altman’s ministry is “ineffective.” Can’t do it, can you? That’s just a catchall throwaway to slit the throat of a believer. You coward.]
“The ministry of pastor was instituted in the Church not for the benefit of the one to whom it is entrusted, but for the pastoral and sacramental care of those for whom it is conferred. The salvation of souls takes precedence over the stability of the pastor in office when these two values come into direct conflict. [And there’s the accusation: The bishop is saying that Father Altman is working for the damnation of souls and couldn’t give a damn about pastoral and sacramental care of his parish family. Pretty brave, there, bishop. You’re playing the part of the Eternal Judge, Christ Jesus, who will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire, including you.] Although attempts were made to allow Fr. Altman the opportunity to respond to fraternal correction, a resolution of this situation has been unsuccessful. [Were the actual complaints in Father’s file forwarded to him so that he could make a response? No. UPDATE: But two boxes of items were delivered to him. Great! Father Altman reported that 99% of letters were entirely supportive of him, while 1% were critical, but were not signed, had no return address. Pfft. This seems to have everything to do with the Dems being diametrically opposed to God and the Church on all fronts such that Father Altman correctly stated that one cannot be a Democrat and a Catholic. Father Altman also rightly cautioned people about taking non-approved experimental drugs, and against any forceful measures to forbid the Sacraments to the Jesus’ Little Flock because of Covid. Those are his crimes? Pfft. He’s one of the few witnesses to faith today.]
“It is important to note that this is not a penal remedy but a pastoral remedy. [Removed from office not penal? Penal is not medicinal? This is one truly confused bishop. This is the thinking of a bully.] Bishop Callahan asks for your prayers for Fr. Altman, for the congregation of St. James, and the faithful of the Diocese of La Crosse and beyond. While any change made to the ministry of a pastor is difficult [There seems to be zero intention of possibly letting Father Altman back to the parish as pastor], it is done with the hope that God’s work of justice, reconciliation and healing may be realized in the Body of Christ for a positive outcome.[!]
“The Diocese of La Crosse asks for the consideration of respect, safety and prayers at this time for all involved.” [Hahahahahah! There must be letters and phone calls and messages pouring into the diocese in gentle support of Father Altman. What a bunch of cowards before Father Altman, a gentle but manly soul.]
My thoughts on how this is going. The secular journalists have blood on their hands, are happy that such is the case, and are now encouraged by this to look to their next victim priest for any or no reason whatsoever. They already know that the bishop is their personal sycophant. All priests are now on notice. And that’s the point.
Also, and just to say, no priest I know of has followed so exactly the Covid protocols of his diocese. But that’s not the problem. The problem is that Father Altman is a believer. Imagine that. A priest who is a believer. That’s the crime.
And if other bishops notice this, they will be likewise emboldened to slit the throats of all their priests as well.
There’s no war in this parish of Holy Redeemer in Andrews, NC, USA. There’s not even a battle. No skirmish. Nothing. If any of these clowns were to come forward to receive the Most Blessed Sacrament while picking their teeth with the bones of children, they would simply be denied and if necessary escorted right out of the church. I would arrange this beforehand with my very capable servers and parishioners. They wouldn’t get the chance to make the tiniest disturbance. Ain’t gonna happen.
I’m happy not to be “a man of consensus.”
I’m happy to be “divisive.”
I’m happy to bring not peace but a sword of division.
I’m happy to preach the Word which cuts more sharply than any doubled edge sword.
I’m happy to be crucified to political correctness, and to my own idiot ways.
I’m happy to live for Jesus (inasmuch as I do… Yikes!)
I don’t see what’s so hard about this, I mean, standing up for what’s all about Jesus! We want Jesus!
“But Father George, you don’t understand. You’re a meany! Give the cookie thingy to everyone and be nice!”
Well… No. As Saint Paul says, anyone who doesn’t discern the Body of Christ when they receive Holy Communion is eating and drinking their own condemnation. So, actually, I’m taking these politicians et alii seriously. Those who just throw the Most Blessed Sacrament at them for the sake of political correctness are not taking the souls of these politicians seriously, and are risking having themselves and the politicians go straight to hell. Our Lord takes us all deadly seriously:
And our Lord wants us to take Him deadly seriously as well:
This is now the situation in many countries. It’s coming to a church near you. Are you ready?
Did he know this was going to happen? Yes.
Did he run? No.
What a great pastor!
To sum it up: If we have no free exercise of religion, nor even freedom to worship God as all worship of God is criminalized by the State, then we are left with nothing but terror and compliance with Satan.
But are not to have any fear! Jesus said so. So, no terror received. Do you sense any fear in this guy’s voice? No. Is he compliant with Satan? No.
But, my more incisive question in my circumstances: Where are those Catholic clergy and bishops like him? There are some, but they are very few and very far between. We must encourage our clergy and bishops to have no fear!
In the front photo of the video this pastor’s face is set like flint, like Jesus on His way to Jerusalem to be crucified. No fear. No anger. But surely determination to see the course through, to fight the good fight. I love that. I pray that I can strive to follow this guy’s example. Thanks, Pastor Pawlowski!
6MWE = Six Million Wasn’t Enough, which means 6MIE = Six Million Isn’t Enough.
6MWE is an academic opinion as far as the law is concerned, but it may hide an active threat of a serial killer.
Proud Boys can’t see anything wrong with 6MWE. They think to say 6MWE is good.
I checked out what Proud Boys say of themselves. How very filthy, disgusting. Anyone belonging to the Proud Boys who was Catholic has taken himself out of the Church.
I’m not virtue signaling here. Catholics who should know better and vaunt themselves as “leaders”, say, some bishops in Texas, seem to have the idea that it’s no good to lobby against procured abortion claiming that “no political issues” can be mentioned in church regardless of also being moral issues belonging to the Ten Commandments, indeed, to natural law (without which there is no moral life). Religion does have something to do with the moral life!Simultaneous to this is what seems to be the opinion of some of them that nuances regarding the 2nd amendment to the U.S. Constitution can be politically lobbied about, as long as what one says politically militates against the 2nd amendment. Because defense of the innocent against mortal aggression already being delivered threats is evil? Have these bishops taken themselves out of the Church?
This video is three years old. The situation is worse today.
The Demoncrats want a gun registry unto gun confiscation, except for those who don’t have any I.D.
Follow the money example:
The Sinaloa Cartel has owned Chicago for decades; it’s their biggest dumping ground for drugs. It cannot but be that they provide kickbacks to the Demoncrat politicos for the favor of ongoing attacks on gun rights so that the only ones left with guns are their scouts and runners and sellers and drug and safe houses.
And why is everyone incapable of following the money? Meanwhile, the “I am the majority!” crowd, like the guy above, is stripped of defense of self and the innocent from unjust violent deadly imminent aggression, even while guns are basically being supplied to the criminals.
We’ve been dubbed the Chief Killer Town many police chiefs ago. Not that I’m counting. It’s the paper that reports that we’ve now been through something like six in three years. We’re looking for number seven! We are often with no Police Department, or perhaps we have one officer, then two, or we’re taken over by the Sheriff’s Department. As of the other day, we have four officers plus one Chief. Great! That’s the most we’ve had in a long time. Oh, wait… Our present Chief, hired December 8, 2020, just resigned effective March 8, 2021, on his three month anniversary. Our anniversaries are in months for Police Chiefs, not years.
Hey! I’m not blaming the town in writing about all of this. I’m not saying that anyone in particular is to blame for the moniker Chief Killer Town. I’m guessing that came from other counties and precincts right across the state and in the tri-State area here, you know, perhaps without knowing any of the particulars, not that I know anything. We live in a rapidly changing culture. Respect for the Constitution and the Rule of Law is decimated.
But the real American Way is to encourage people to have their identity securely established by God, the Natural Law of the Creator being utterly consistent with the Ten Commandments, all that being a sine qua non, a without which not. Americans by and large police themselves with love of God and neighbor. The present national administration’s attack on religion on every single front is a bid to remove from souls the identity that they have in God. The only two ways to police a situation without God are (1) by fear and brute force (China, Russia, North Korea, etc.)., that is, by a Defund the Police movement that instantaneously turns into a Police State with puppet officers, or (2) by running from on high the developing war lord gangs and crime syndicates that flourish like never before as people turn to escapism and arrogance – entitlement mentality! – as their new identity apart from God.
In both these cases, honest police are smashed down, as are fire-fighters, as are EMTs, who are all part of the “establishment.” It’s the criminals against “The Man”. Anything or anyone who reflects even a smidgeon of civil society is automatically the enemy.
That’s speaking generally. Just to be clear: the outgoing chief resigned, and he himself super-highly-magnificently-wondrously praised the town officials. Great! So, the town didn’t “kill” him, right? I wish him well in his future endeavors which may well include law enforcement once again. He’s totally in good standing. Friendly guy. Very capable. He’s just stepping back for awhile. Considering the change in culture, I get that, you know, the stepping back of any LEO from all this lack of support, at least for a while. We all need a break to regroup. So, great! I respect that altogether. Good on you, brother.
The purpose of writing this post is to say where we’re at before the town puts out tenders for the job of chief, as those applying should know what they are getting into. I say “tenders” because I’m guessing that anyone brave enough to apply has some room to negotiate about circumstances of employment. The one who is most fit for the job of upholding the Constitution of these USA and the Rule of Law for the good of the town is the one who will insist on a number of things before taking the job. I have a long list, but, in providing that I would be speaking out of turn. So, I’ll just offer one suggestion that all other law enforcement agencies that I am personally familiar with have accomplished or it was already this way since the beginning (because it is just common sense):
The Police Department is to be entirely removed from the campus of Town Hall and moved far away to another part of town. Totally separate campuses. Different parts of town. There is a long list of available properties. All my other unvoiced suggestions such as ending all truly hateful and self-destructive micromanagement from non-LEOs would follow from this. This is the most important non-negotiable. It’s a fail from the start if this is not accomplished from the get-go.
That’s not to say that Town Hall is not already pushing this agenda of separate campuses. I don’t know. Last I heard, which is now already something from “back in the day”, plans were to construct a new Town Hall with offices of town officials and offices of law enforcement occupying – again – the same office area. Again. Separate campuses is a non-negotiable. I would go a step further about this non-negotiable thing: properties for this end are not to be been acquired from and cannot be adjacent to any property that is owned by anyone employed at Town Hall or any politician of any kind. Period. Seriously.
I’m seriously thinking of having a referendum put on the ballot this November 2021 about all this if the powers that be don’t proclaim that this is what they intend to do right now. In saying that I realize that I’ve laid myself wide open. It is what it is. The more I see drugs and violence and kids lives being destroyed on any number of levels all over town, it’s just something that has to be done.
Having said all that, the officers who now remain are all good guys, extremely capable, ready – oh, so very ready – to do their jobs with enthusiasm and integrity and knowledge, with seriously over the top skill sets. They’ve already been doing that, of course. I would trust my life to them. I would hope they would trust that I have their six equally. There are so very many in town who feel just as I do.
Andrews is a great little town, but it is falling into the hands of violent druggies. But if any future chief is not deterred by a challenge, this would actually present a day-to-day that’s super interesting, always changing, that makes a huge impact on ordinary lives of the citizens, so very many of whom loudly voice encouragement for our officers and again, have their six, and are quite capable of having their six.
But we’re quickly disintegrating. It’s totally salvageable and able to be brought to an exemplary level of excellence. But we’re barreling to a point of no return. We’re looking for someone who can take the reigns and let their oath to defend the Constitution and the Rule of Law shine so brightly that even the criminal element will be set on their heels as they take note that what’s right is also good for them. And that’s what we want, right? Bringing also the criminal element back to a proper sense of identity before God is what will be good for all souls still involved with this sorry dark world. God is our Light. He is Truth. His love is honest.
Anyone or anything which insists that marriage is to be between one man and one woman aspiring to be a family is to be outlawed. That’s sure to be a criminal offense, perhaps firstly a misdemeanor, then various levels of felonies which will end in prison.
What am I going to do about my Bible Study for the prisoners up in Graham County? I’ll already be in Jail. So…
The Dems are such fascist bullies. That’s always the case. Satan was a liar and murderer from the beginning.
The freakish, monstrous bishops and archbishops of these politicians who provide them Holy Communion… What are thinking?
Fauci wants fear and masks well into 2022 even after “herd immunity”. India is already at that threshold. It’s pretty much over. Do some “cases” still get some symptoms? Rarely, but, sure. Is there a person here or there who needs help among them? Yep. And dying can be a fright for those with no faith. That’s what people are really afraid of. Fauci-fear mongering capitalizes on people having no “feeling” of security which stems from being without a bond with God that is stronger than death, stronger than any fear we might want to come up with.
Is Fauci creating fear to make sure there is mail-in balloting for the mid-term elections in 2022? That’s most probable, like 100%. Are the vote counting “irregularities” to be corrected by 2022. Zero chance of that.
Just the other day the druggies in my neighborhood were readying themselves to do up a home invasion on me, but my fearless neighbor, risking life and limb, chased them away. This happens quite a bit. Andrews, NC is the drug capital for WNC, for East TN, for North Georgia. The crime has transformed and increased to crazy levels. But we don’t have stats because, you know, why should they be sent in to state level anyway? We’re a nice town! But the State is on to us now, so I imagine something might be sent in, maybe for parking tickets or the like. So, speaking of the Second Amendment…
We hear much about HR127 which in effect is tantamount to removing the Second Amendment from the Constitution of these USA. I doubt that will proceed very far. But more recently, an interview with Wuhan Joe was published (now post-inauguration), which presents something even more far reaching in its simplicity. Wuhan Joe wants to confiscate all guns, though providing his personal permission[!] for having a sidearm if there are biometrics involved, so that, for instance, a self-defense tool will not operate unless any involved fingerprints are those of the registered owner of the self-defense tool. This, of course, requires a new purchase on the part of citizens in good standing. Surely there’s no kickbacks to be involved there… Um… Also, technology for framing individuals for crimes by way of fingerprint transfers has been around for decades.
Fingerprints… I’ve submitted to that process by way of black inkings and by way of all sort and manner of glass-plate scanners right through the years right around the world and right across these USA. The fingerprinting events of whatever method have always been frustrating, with whatever law enforcement techs becoming visibly annoyed and even somewhat aggressive with my lack of viable fingerprints. Hunted criminals try to “erase” their fingerprints. No fingerprints = suspicion. The meme question to me is then: “Who are you, anyway?” This blog has sported many accounts of this occurrence which, being so frequent, is humorous.
The last fingerprinting event came about as part of the process of getting permission for second amendment Constitutional rights here in what the Sheriff has declared to be a 2A sanctuary: Cherokee County of North Carolina. The nice officer worked it seemed for an exaggerated amount of time in an attempt to acquire something, anything of recordable data for any would-be fingerprint so as to send these off to the State Bureau of Investigation. “Maybe two or three partials, maybe,” she said after many repeated attempts, exasperated that she had reached the limit of attempts possible in the law. “I’ll send what I have to the SBI, but they will reject this immediately and we will have to go through this multiple times, setting up more appointments on this end and waiting possibly for weeks each time, and then sending it all to them and waiting. This may add months to your request for getting permission. But after many attempts they also will have to accept what is there and send whatever it is off to the FBI. And then we’ll wait again.”
“No worries,” thought I. “There are other ways of ascertaining who I am, and there will be no problem at all,” thought I, smiling with sardonic contentedness. Indeed, the SBI instantaneously approved me first try – instantaneously – but not because of any viable fingerprints. The nice fingerprinting officer was shocked about this, once again giving me the “Who are you anyway?” look, and offering comments of amazement. It is to laugh.
UPSHOT: I could never fire a gun that wouldn’t fire without immediately viable fingerprints, which wouldn’t work anyway except in perfect laboratory conditions regarding temperature (cold and hot not working), no gloves (which are common when working, and/or when in cold areas, like from Texas to Canada), no sweat (that you otherwise would have even in cold weather when there is an adrenaline pumping situation), no mud, no dirt, no new scrapes since the last fingerprint scan, no blood, and no switching of hands when your own fingers of your strong hand have been shot off (a not super-infrequent occurrence as you draw up with your self-defense tool right in front of you), a bad grip for reason of broken fingers and you shove a trigger finger into the trigger guard all the way to the palm of your hand to get some viable muscle to pull the trigger (no fingerprints there), and so on.
But I don’t have fingerprints to begin with. So, how is this Constitutional? I’m a citizen in good standing, and I’m being infringed. And, yes, I have a many reasons for carrying my now permitted concealed carry tool, also openly carried here in North Carolina and in this 2A sanctuary of Cherokee County.
The joke in these days about any gun confiscation is to say: “Oh! I’m so sorry dearest confiscation officers! I would hand over all my guns but I lost them in a boating accident!” But let’s update that for my situation:
“I lost my fingerprints in a boating accident.”
Go ahead and laugh at my stupidity, as I got what I deserved: While I’ve always had trouble fingerprinting, this intensified when building the hermitage now many years ago. I needed to fill in gaps under the rafters and I used expanding foam. I didn’t read the directions and so didn’t wear gloves. This was like a gorilla glue in the hair experience. My hands had glops of foam all over them. I’ll just wash that off before it dries, thought I. Nope. Rubbing alcohol? Nope. Gasoline? Nope. I finally read the warnings on the spray-can. Uh-oh. I then tried an abrasive pot scrubber. Nope. My heart fell. I entrenched. Steel wool? Yep. After many sessions, many hours each, my hands were entirely raw. It worked, but…
“You see these marks?” asked the nice law enforcement fingerprinting officer, showing me printouts of my non-fingerprints. “The story is embarrassing,” said I, but then I recounted the story above. There was deserved rolling of eyes. I laugh at myself as well.
But should I lose my second amendment under Wuhan Joe just because I didn’t read directions on a spray foam can while going a zillion miles an hour in just getting things done in my construction tasks, even triple tasking? Even someone who makes a mistake with a spray foam can still has second amendment rights, right? Believe me, that mistake will never be made again. We can learn from mistakes. And this wasn’t criminal and there was no criminal intent.
Having said all this, I still have two requests for Diplomatic Security.
Hmmm… thought I. Very expensive folder. What could be inside?
That’s all a calculated lie, of course. Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Andrews, NC had nothing to do with the U.S. Census Bureau. That’s a paradigmatic shift from what actually happened. I’m the pastor of this church, but I did not involve this 501(c)3 with the Census Bureau in any way. I myself talked with the Census Bureau’s representative who is beholden to the Census Bureau’s Regional Office in Atlanta. She proclaimed that I was very first contact who would be ever so important in gathering information on the Latino community. I didn’t cooperate. I was sent numerous invites to regional conferences indoctrinating valued partners. I never went.
In fact, the very second I met this lady I asked her if she was degreed out in gaming theory (one country gaming another into non-viability). Yes, she was. She had a doctorate in the matter, you know, from a Jesuit university up in WV. I immediately asked if she had therefore been employed among the U.S. Army’s terrorist intelligence mathematical engineers for the DARPA COMPASS program. Yes, she was. That would only make sense. Being employed also by the Census Bureau would mean that stats were her forte. That’s what DARPA COMPASS does in their effort to do up extra-judicial killings also of American Citizens in what they call a gray-war, you know, to make it all better.
I then asked her about gerrymandering political districts. She demurred. I asked about purposed engineering of answers so as to anonymize individuals but entirely compromise any promise not to gerrymander political districts so as to sway elections. She super demurred.
I didn’t cooperate with her repeated visits, telephone calls, emails.
But perhaps I’m wrong about this award. Maybe it’s a gesture of peace after what happened a short time after I myself sent in my correctly filled out Census card on time. Three thugs from the U.S. Census Bureau Regional Office in Atlanta flooded my phone with messages about a question they had about an answer on my Census card. I had correctly stated that I was the only one living here, ever. They mocked all Catholic priests and the entire Catholic Church by saying (and repeating multiple times) that since this was a Catholic rectory, therefore it must be that I am keeping women and children here. Just. Wow. What does that mean? Human trafficking? Illegal immigration? Prostitution? Abuse? Just. Wow. You know, precisely and only because it is Catholic. All these thugs and buffoons should go to prison. What they are doing is felonious.
And don’t get me started on the American Community Survey which this year is heavily pushing gender theory, identity politics, same sex marriage, promiscuity, and, it seems to me, much worse.
This crowd couldn’t care less about religion or sexual perversion or inversions or whatever. No. What is so hotly desired is that consciences be compromised. Once you rip out the conscience of an individual, you own their soul. They will be compliant with whatever agenda no matter how anti-religious, no matter how anti-American.
They send an award for my cooperation. Did I cooperate? Actually, I did. I dare say I went along with the program more than anyone else by explaining my disgust. They also appreciate that very much. They dismiss my viewpoints, thinking they will win conscience and soul in the end. What they don’t realize, however much they congratulate themselves for having gone to Jesuit universities, is that Jesus will win in the end. No one will rip the faith out of His little flock. And He, Jesus, will come to judge the living and the dead and world by fire. Yes, He will. And not even these thugs and buffoons who think they are so powerful will be able to avoid that judgment. I hope they go along with the grace Jesus does provide them to repent and be forgiven and be saved. Amen.
P.S. Oh, I forgot! They are surely judging how many people live in this rectory by way of tracking credit cards and seeing the huge amount of food I buy. Pfft! I do that on my own personal credit card, buying groceries for the elderly Covid-19 comorbidity crowd. Does the Census Bureau hate me and all religion for acts of charity? Pfft. These guys and gals in the Census Bureau are more monstrous than I thought.
