As long time readers are perhaps painfully aware, I’ve been baby-sat on flights for most all of my life because of a “perpetual” and “interdepartmental” program set up by DoS and DSCC and their minions. I was told in no uncertain terms by the U.S. Consultate in Rome some 25 years ago that there’s nothing I can do about this. It is what it is.
With the recent death of Richard Marcinko, Founder and Commander of SEAL Team 6 (now DEVGRU), an incident comes to mind of this kind of baby sitting from some forty years ago, the early 1980s.
When entering 747 TWA flight 840, JFK-FCO (New York – Rome), from the front of the aircraft, then making my way toward the back of the plane, I was looking for anything out of the ordinary where my seat would be. There was. A stewardess blocked everyone’s way just at that row of seats, checking this or that ticket of just some of the men, but letting all and sundry pass by, until I got there and she asked for my ticket. She made triple-sure of my identity, and asked for my passport, not returning it immediately. I had the still empty window seat (no window in that row next to the emergency exits), and the other seat across from the galley was empty.
“Sir, follow me,” she commanded in no uncertain terms. “Yes, ma’am,” said I. She pointed to a center-center seat in the central island of seats in that section of the 747, and said that I was to sit next to the co-pilot, who, bored to death and annoyed to be just there in the plane instead of up in the cockpit, having to babysit me, was there filling out logs. This went on for ten minutes. The plane was filling up but no one was seated in that island of seats except for us. While we waited, the stewardess was standing at what was supposed be my row of seats. Finally, someone was squeezing into the seat next to mine, a big guy, so much so that I thought he might fill up both seats. It looked like he bench-pressed city buses for a couple of hours before breakfast every day. Instantly, the stewardess walked toward me and commanded, “Sir, follow me.” “Yes, ma’am,” said I. The co-pilot instantly took off to the cockpit. “You can be seated now,” she said, leaving. “Thank you, ma’am,” said I. Somehow I was able to fit into my seat.
He wore a day-to-day military uniform he was clearly not used to wearing. He was of very sharp intellect and at the same time obviously some sort of rogue warrior. Now I find out that that’s what he’s been called: “The Rogue Warrior”. Google that. As I asked him my usual pesky if well-spaced questions, a practice I’ve had my entire life, he mentioned that he was heading to the middle east, Commander, as he was, of what he called in those early years, a SEAL Team, ST6. Perhaps I had been bragging on my dad as Commander of the USMC Corsair Fighter Attack Checkerboarders that loosened him up a bit enough to tell me that bit about himself. He having told me that, I felt badly that he had to be tasked with babysitting me. And that’s still true. He would have been on a military transport, but when there’s someone in need of babysitting going the same way, anyone is assigned to go on conventional craft to get the job done.
At the time, I was a seminarian and, if somewhat a military brat on the Department of the Navy side of things, still had not much of an idea of what SEAL Team 6 was all about. All he said was that he was getting some things reorganized and something about the Middle East.
When I saw the news of the death on Christmas 2021 of Richard Marcinko, 82 years old, and seeing his picture, I knew that that was the guy. Who else looks just like him and was commander of that SEAL Team back in the day? Nobody at all is the answer.
I spent nine hours sitting with him, elbow to elbow. But I hadn’t much of an idea who I was really sitting next to. I wish I knew then what I know now. We were in a row of seats adjacent to the emergency exits near the wing.
FoxNews put up a great short obituary of The Rogue Warrior, well worth the read, as it’s well worth getting introduced to this guy:
These guys live and die to protect our God-given unalienable Constitutional rights such as the free exercise of religion. They should not have those rights removed for themselves. Joining the military doesn’t mean you have no unalienable God-given rights just for laying down your life to protect those rights for your fellow citizens. Let’s be clear: this right is not provided by the government, which in that case could take it right back. Rather, it’s provided by God and can’t be removed by anyone. Some jerk like Joey Biden can forbid someone physically by imprisoning them, shooting them, whatever, but they still retain that right in front of God who will come to judge also Joey Biden.
Meanwhile, taking a step back to see the bigger picture, we see a secular judge being more concerned about God-given rights to the free exercise of religion than religious leaders, with religious leaders, almost to a man, not only denying religious exemptions, but militating against them, demanding that governments around the world not permit religious exemptions. That’s religious leaders doing that. Again, God will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire. Even bishops will God judge.
/// Nota bene: In this rant, “beta-boys” does not refer to any rock group, but rather to a nickname for idiot wanna-be-tough guys, with “beta-boys” being a nickname coined by the great wife of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher and applied to the ever so tender snowflake bullies of the NCIS (one from the FBI). ///
Power beta-boys in Peru and Haiti
Remember those occasions in Peru and Haiti when PsyOps beta-boys of those governments baited crime to prosecute in such manner as to make for a chilling effect on protests of injustice, what with high-up ecclesiastics taken by whatever jerky government, stripped, hands tied, and put on a leash behind a pickup truck, and marched naked throughout their local cities? Purpose? Baiting: maybe the poor guys will try to fight what was happening to them, and therefore be accused of crimes, you know, on camera. Purpose? Humiliation. A warning. Don’t criticize! Just shut up and let corruption reign and let populations be oppressed, you know, super-Venezuela events benefiting like only a dozen people in the entire countries in question.
Sandinista beta-boys in Nicaragua
Remember when, in Nicaragua, non-Communist truly Catholic Cardinal Obando y Bravo’s right hand man was taken in his parish, how he got a call for Last Rites in the middle of the night? He knocked on the door and he was forthwith grabbed, stripped naked and thrown on to a bed with a naked prostitute with, conveniently, a half-dozen movie cameras running. He was then tied up naked behind a truck and paraded around his village. Sound familiar? Nicaraguans are savvy, however, and forthwith kidnapped a top Sandinista Commie and, having tied him in back of pickup, paraded him naked around his city. But then the oppression and killings were ramped up until today its like living dying under Stalin in Nicaragua.
McCarrick beta-boys in these United States of America
But let’s change the scenery up a bit. Let’s rearrange deck chairs on the Titanic. Let’s say someone is accused of some crime and that the mere accusation is somehow bringing shame to an institution. Let’s say that the prevailing unethical self-serving idiocy of availability bias of an all-too-willing population as manipulated by the media holds the politically correct bullying idea that accusation is guilt, having forgotten all about due process and that one is to be held innocent until proven guilty. “Witches” in Salem were thrown into a river; if they drown they were innocent; if they lived they would be hanged. These prevailing winds of pointing the finger at someone else rampant in any oversexualized society were very handy for, say, Cardinal Theodore McCarrick to take suspicion off himself and place it on any and all priests who, if accused are held to be guilty, making those bishops look to all and sundry like heroes because of being “tough on abuse”, even while, you know, they themselves, his beta-boys, were, you know, doing that which they so condemned. But everyone knew that.
Those seminarians and priests who were actually believers and who were not caving to homosex beta-boys – quickly found out that they would be thrown out of any seminary or be removed from any assignment, not even because they were accused, but because they would not agree that the oversexualized Sodom and Gomorrah in which we live is a good thing. No due process, ever. That’s the point. Make it so absurd that one cannot rebel. Make it so absurd that everyone will, in fear, say that accusation is guilt. So, these seminarians and priests are made an example, stripped of their good names, humiliated, and paraded about in front of the Church and the world. These are PsyOps by the enemies of the Church. Yes. Everyone else will simply fall into line. And where are we today? Yuck. Get it? The thing is, God also sees. Jesus Himself was accused, no due process, held to be guilty because of being accused, stripped and humiliated, paraded about. The Chief Priests did that so it must be true! It happened. Deny any of that, deny Jesus, and He will deny you. He said so. He will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire.
NSW, DoD, FBI back NCIS beta-boys armed with M4s, f***ing with real boys in underwear (with those real boys proving themselves to be more men than the fake-men-beta-boys
Talk about PsyOps meant to intimidate and bait. Oh my. Perhaps you remember when the highly decorated incredibly talented Navy SEAL (Team 7) Eddie Gallagher was accused of murdering an ISIS fighter, and was thrown under the bus by the Department of the Navy. They didn’t want him to have due process, as that would drag out, and bring media scrutiny, and “hurt” the SEALs branding. The higher-ups wouldn’t look like heroes, you know, tough on crime, if they they didn’t hold Eddie to be guilty because of being accused. Sound familiar? It’s all for looks, not for justice. They did everything they could with PsyOps and baiting to get Eddie to just shut up and take life imprisonment, regardless of whether or not he was guilty or innocent. He was proven innocent. But to get there? Oh my…
Yesterday I binge watched a five hour, thirty minute interview of Eddie Gallagher by Shawn Ryan. I am a better person for having done that, a better priest for having done that. Totally worth it. Oh my… The whole thing was, to me, riveting. Lots of chill there. Lots of calm wisdom. There are just some minutes of this interview that you might want to take a look at (sailor language warning). Go to 2:08:05 and let it run to 2:37:00. His eight year old son and his wife are also interviewed in these few minutes. You’ll understand why I prefaced this video with the above stories about being paraded about naked, why I prefaced this with stories of baiting…
Just. Wow. I think somewhere in that five and 1/2 hour interview Eddie says something about wanting to rip out the throats of the “beta-boys” who were assaulting his kids while he and his wife were not at home. But he didn’t do that, though obviously he has the skill sets to actually do that, in seconds, to all of them. But he refrained, knowing that this was all PsyOps to get him to attempt something just like that, at which point he would have been mag dumped by like two and half dozen NCIS beta-boys pretending to be SWATers. So he didn’t do that. He’s my hero whose example I strive to follow. Totally chill guy for his past life experience. Baiting to murder a guy? This is just how bad it gets. This is what the higher ups are like, right now, though, just to say, one of the higher-ups in this fiasco was, you know, retired out early. Bwahahahahaha. Look, the SEALs as a whole are great. They’re our best. I’m just so disappointed with the few self-protectionists ever so reminiscent of McCarrick. And the NCIS? Wow. Such criminals… Maybe some are good, but these guys?
The FBI and NCIS knew he was not home, as they had Eddie locked in an interrogation room for the morning. The FBI and NCIS knew that his wife was not home, only the two kids, eight and just turned eighteen. The younger brother was watching Saturday morning cartoons and the older brother was asleep in his bed, both in their underwear. Then, lasers dotted on them, and then instantly M4s pointed at their heads from “like a foot away.” You know, while they stood there in underwear, obviously not a threat.
This FBI guy and the NCIS beta-boys are total s***heads. Sorry, but… Anyway, the two kids were paraded out in their neighborhood in their underwear always with at least two M4s aimed at them while the other kitted out NCIS beta-boys ransacked the house for seven hours. Anyway, just watch those few minutes.
My purpose in putting this up is to disabuse the naivety of those who think this sort of thing to be impossible, even when such corruption is all around us every day. It happened to Jesus. Get it? Some don’t. The ones who deny that any kind of betrayal just cannot happen live fearful, useless lives, and make life difficult for those who would jar them out of their unreality.
“You’re a conspiracy theorist, Father Byers!” I guess I am, because I do think that Satan gets a lot of beta-boys around himself. We should be aware of that, not because of fear, but because of being fearless, in honesty, integrity, truth, in love of God and neighbor. You can’t fix it if you deny it. You can’t fix it if you are fearful. You can’t fix it unless you stop being a beta-boy.
We need men to man up. Eddie Gallagher did. Thank you, Eddie. And thank you, Shawn, for putting this up. The best five and a half hour video I ever watched! ;-)
/// Just to say: When NCIS and the FBI allow this abuse of family, of wife and kids, it’s beyond just Mafia-esque strong arming. Just too much.
