Aphasia: Actor Bruce Willis’ recent diagnosis seems to explain many of President Biden’s cognitive issues, as well

According to those who have worked with the elder Willis on his recent films, the actor has been exhibiting signs of decline in recent years. In interviews with The Times this month, nearly two dozen people who were on set with the actor expressed concern about Willis’ well-being.

In one alleged incident two years ago on a Cincinnati set of the movie “Hard Kill,” Willis unexpectedly fired a gun loaded with a blank on the wrong cue, according to two people familiar with the incident who were not authorized to comment. No one was injured. 

Filmmakers described heart-wrenching scenes as the beloved “Pulp Fiction” star grappled with his loss of mental acuity and an inability to remember his dialogue. An actor who traveled with Willis would feed the star his lines through an earpiece, known in the industry as an “earwig,” according to several sources. 

Willis questioned where he was: “I know why you’re here, and I know why you’re here, but why am I here?” two crew members said he asked aloud.

“It was less of an annoyance and more like: ‘How do we not make Bruce look bad?'” one of the crew members said. “Someone would give him a line and he didn’t understand what it meant. He was just being puppeted.”

There can be no triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, or period of peace, until the ravening wolves are expelled from the Church

If we want to understand our duties to stop the ravening wolves within the Church, we can consider how reasonable people would react to similar offenses in the secular world. In almost any other field of human endeavors, men who flagrantly betray the central tenets of their profession, to the detriment of those they are tasked with serving, would be publicly excoriated and likely imprisoned. Think of a doctor who intentionally gave a patient a placebo instead of a life-saving cure; or an engineer who purposely included faulty materials in the construction of an airplane; or the president of a company who sabotaged his company’s performance upon receiving bribes from a competitor; or a military general who gave away the country’s costly arsenal and vital secrets to the enemy. In all of these cases, the villain in question could not begin to cause as much damage as the ravening wolves within the Church. And yet when it happens in the Church we heap accolades and honors upon the offenders, to the detriment of souls and delight of Satan.

We should humbly acknowledge that the Church and world are in this great crisis because “good Catholics” have showed far too much reticence when faced with the ravening wolves. They allowed their sheep to be devoured because they felt it was improper to denounce those with an insatiable taste for the blood of innocents. Oftentimes they reserved their “righteous anger” for denouncing those who openly resisted the innovations of Vatican II. The world is in such desperate need of the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary today because good Catholics have let the wolves roam freely within the Church.

“The Child Grooming Enablers at Walt Disney have, once again, expressed their disapproval of the Anti Child Grooming Law sponsored by Governor De Santis”.

In Florida, Governor De Santis has promoted and vigorously defended a law meant to prevent homosexual indoctrination of little children. This alone tells you how serious the situation has become, and how evil our opponents are.

The Devil’s side has immediately called the measure the “don’t say gay” bill. It already makes me angry that these people need to always distort the nature of things in order to promote their perversion (but then again, distorting the nature of things is what perversion is all about).

What, however, really infuriates me is that the centrist and centre right outlets immediately adopted the slogan and keep repeating the moniker, even if only to support the Governor’s initiative.

Let me make this very clear: if you adopt the language of the enemy, the enemy wins. This applies not only in this case, but always.

Every time one uses “gay’ for “homosexual”, “homophobic” for “Christian” or “normal”, “fat phobic” for “sensible”, “voter equality” for “voter fraud”, “equity” for “communism”, and countless other leftist-mandated expression, he is giving the opponent the right to occupy strategic ground and win in the end. Put it another way, your mouth must be where your conviction is: you can’t condemn sodomy and try to be nice about it.

Something the Russians attacking Mariupol, as well as its Ukrainian defenders ought to remember: Mariupol – originally Marianopol – was named for the Blessed Virgin Mary

Please note the unconventional footwear

According to the the book The Marian Option: God’s Solution to a Civilization in Crisis Mary is everywhere: Marigolds are named for her. Hail Mary passes save football games. The image in Mexico of Our Lady of Guadalupe is one of the most reproduced female likenesses ever. Mary draws millions each year to shrines such as Fatima, in Portugal, and Knock, in Ireland, sustaining religious tourism estimated to be worth billions of dollars a year and providing thousands of jobs.

She inspired the creation of many great works of art and architecture (Michelangelo’s “Pietà,” Notre Dame Cathedral), as well as poetry, liturgy, and music (Monteverdi’s Vespers for the Blessed Virgin). And she is the spiritual confidante of billions of people, no matter how isolated or forgotten. 

One other thing: Mary is said to wear combat boots.

It seemed an odd thing to say about the woman who is always described as exceedingly beautiful, clothed in gorgeous flowing silks and veils. And yet, if you look deeper at Mary’s influence over the centuries, the idea of her wearing combat boots looks a little more plausible.

Of the many foreshadowings of Mary found in the Old Testament, this one rings true of a beautiful woman in boots: “Who is she that cometh forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in array?” (Sg 6:10). She has been called la Conquistadora, meaning “the conqueror” (hardly a tender title)—­a popular devotion that continues in the American Southwest. In the Litany of Our Lady of Sorrows, her more militant side shines through. In it, she is called Shield of the oppressed, Conqueror of the incredulous, Protectress of those who fight, Haven of the shipwrecked, Calmer of tempests, Retreat of those who groan, Terror of the treacherous, and Standard-­bearer of the Martyrs. Like a fierce mama bear, there is nothing light-­weight about her intercession and protection of those devoted to her. More recently, St. Maximilian Kolbe’s “Militia of the Immaculate Conception” and the Blue Army—­in contrast to the Communist Red Army, formed in response to the apparitions of Fatima—­also reflect her role as the twelve-­star general leading her troops in a spiritual battle. One twelfth-­century knight wrote, “Our Lady is powerful in battles . . . She is the hope of . . . knights who fight . . . Without her aid, knights cannot win.”

In the military battles where she is invoked, the scale is tipped in surprising ways for her warriors. In battle after battle, a similar storyline presents itself: The Christians are outnumbered, but they’ve done their spiritual homework. The fighting starts, and out of the blue, something odd happens that leads the Christians to victory.

Blackmailers are “pulling the strings” of a great many of the world’s most highly placed political and church figures

Here’s how it works (courtesy of the American Thinker):

Less than seven percent of American voters identify as being “very liberal”.  Yet, thanks to the unbridled use of political blackmail, they have set the agenda since 2009.  Additionally, by virtue of these tactics they are also in de facto control not only of the Democrat party but the legacy media, the education establishment, social media, and the universities.  In 2021 they achieved a major milestone: absolute dominion over the Office of President of the United States.

Vladimir Lenin, one of the icons of the American Marxists, defined modern political blackmail as follows:

Political blackmail is the threat of exposing, or the actual exposure, of true, but more often invented, “stories” with the aim of causing an opponent political damage, of slandering him, of depriving him of the possibility of engaging in political activity, or of making it difficult for him.

Being ready for whatever may come

There has never been any real substitute for a regular, personal program of Catholic prayer and study, coupled with a lifetime of full, faithful participation in all the work, worship, sacraments and devotions of the Holy Catholic Church: The only Church that Jesus Christ ever personally founded, authorized, empowered and personally guaranteed, for the purpose of our salvation.


The personal “quest” of the late mythologist Joseph Campbell

…Campbell’s discernment of the hero’s quest and his distillation of world myth into an easily-digestible template has had a powerful impact on contemporary culture. While his scholarship has been criticized by specialists and his theories disputed by academics, the impact of his work remains enormous.

…George Lucas, the creator of the Star Wars films, credits Campbell with their success. Early in his career Lucas began studying Campbell’s work in order to understand the classic structure of stories. As he was revising the script for Star Wars, Lucas consciously began to weave the mythological structure into his interstellar fairy tale. He thus created a “myth for the American people” in a similar way that J.R.R. Tolkien created a “myth for the English people” with his Lord of the Rings trilogy.

…Campbell’s life ended at his home in Honolulu in 1987 at the age of 83. Although he was brought up as a Catholic, he had wandered from his Catholic faith partially because of the way the Catholic religion had changed. He understood that the Catholic faith was the one religion in the modern world that had retained the sacramental vision and depth of ceremony that made “the transcendent transparent,” but after the Second Vatican Council, he believed, the Church herself threw out all that “ritualistic ceremonial stuff” and turned the Catholic religion into a peace-and-justice campaign—a happy meal served up in a building that looked like the waiting room of a dentist office. He is not the only one to have left the church dismayed by the modern stripping of the altars.

…on his deathbed Joseph Campbell asked for a Catholic priest and was reconciled with the church of his childhood.

Is Florida Governor Ron DeSantis the “wrong” kind of Catholic politician?

The Florida governor has been in the news the past few years because of his connection to the former president and a virus that paralyzed the planet for two years. A hero to the right and bogeyman to the left, DeSantis has received plenty of mainstream news coverage — much of it one-sided — because of his use of so-called culture war issues to push legislation.

DeSantis, who is running for re-election and among the favorites to run for the White House in 2024, has been a lightning rod for Democrats and a focus of criticism from the mainstream press for the last two years. His actions regarding COVID-19 were at odds with how blue states handled the virus, often catapulting him to national attention.

While the coverage has predictably focused on politics, the religion-news hooks in these stories have largely been ignored — unless they were highlighted to be used against him. The bottom line: DeSantis is not the kind of Catholic who draws cheers from journalists who admire progressive Catholics.

Are we blind not to see that we have become the home of the Red Menace while Russia has moved away from it since the 1984 Consecration?

Article takes a very close, Catholic look at several of the most remarkable events in the Church and the world, in light of current events, asking “what if?”:

… Who will be appointed to tell us if the Consecration that Francis is going to do on March 25 was accepted by Heaven?

When John Paul II did the Consecration on March 25, 1984, Sister Lucy said on November 8, 1989, that the Consecration had been accepted by Heaven, yet no one but the Blue Army believed her.

Please don’t say that the answer to my question will be what happens with Russia afterwards, because spectacular things happened to Russia after the 1984 Consecration including the breakup of the Soviet Union and the fall of Communism in 1989.

Additionally, nuclear war was averted (that same nuclear war that the current leftist global elites, Obama, Soros, Biden, Trudeau, Macron, Klaus Schwab, Hilary Clinton, Zelensky, etc., seem to so eagerly want now) but no one wanted to believe any of that had anything to do with the 1984 Consecration.

This is a story about the world not believing what is before everyone’s eyes. The following 4 people on the world stage were disbelieved by the powers that be. What would have happened if they had been believed?

Archbishop Vigano calls out the bad actors, deliberate falsehoods and utter hypocrisies of the Ukraine War

The presence of neo-Nazi forces was declared by the US Congress, which in 2015 suspended the training of neo-Nazis of the Azov battalion in the US with an amendment that was later canceled due to pressure from the CIA (here). The violations of the Kiev agreements and the persecution of the Russian-speaking minority in Donbass has been extensively documented by international organizations and the media that today censor their own news stories (here): more than 14,000 victims of this ethnic cleansing against Russian-speaking citizens are estimated. The Zelensky government not only did not oppose this violence by neo-Nazi groups, but deliberately denied it and regularized the Azov battalion as an official military force.

The ideological continuity between the pandemic farce and the Russian-Ukrainian crisis continues to emerge, beyond the evidence of the events and statements of the subjects involved, in the fact that the ultimate perpetrators of both are the same, all attributable to the globalist cabal of the World Economic Forum. By way of example, Secretary of State Tony Blinken is the founder of the strategic consulting firm WestExec Advisors, connected to the Davos Forum, which has over 20 of its people in the Biden Administration (here, here e here). Many WestExec employees have been or still are in very close relationship with the World Economic Forum, starting with Michelle Flournoy and Jamie Smith, as Politico has denounced (here).

These are not “conspiracy theories, but facts. Period!

But wait. There’s more! (link)

The Problem of Nihilism Within the Catholic Church

In a letter to Betty Hester dated August 28, 1955, Flannery O’Connor wrote: “If you live today you breathe in nihilism. In or out of the Church, it’s the gas you breathe.” 

It was a strange observation to make at a time when the Catholic Church in the United States and Canada was seemingly at the height of its power. 

A decade after the end of the Second World War, seminaries and convents were filled to capacity. Catholic couples were marrying in the Church and raising large families in the suburbs where new parishes were being established and where the majority of Catholics went to Mass on Sundays and Holy Days. Catholic grade schools and high schools were booming and affordable, if not free, and often staffed entirely by consecrated men and women in religious garb.

Bing Crosby’s iconic character Father O’Malley stood symbolic of North American Catholicism for both Catholics and non-Catholics alike. The Church was confident, powerful, triumphant, wealthy, and respected.

Yet O’Connor smelled trouble.

Radical Democrat Pro Abortion bill that would have eliminated virtually every anti-abortion law in the country, fails in the Senate

The following Catholic senators voted in favor of the fraudulently named, since half of all aborted babies are female, “Women’s Health Protection Act”: Maria Cantwell, D-Wash.; Bob Casey, D-Penn; Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev.; Dick Durbin, D-Ill.; Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.; Tim Kaine, D-Va.; Mark Kelly, D-Ariz.; Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.; Ed Markey, D-Mass.; Bob Menendez, D-N.J.; Patty Murray, D-Wash.; Alex Padilla, D-Calif., and Jack Reed, D-R.I.

While Ben Ray Luján, D-N.M., was absent, he co-sponsored the bill.

Another Catholic, President Joe Biden, strongly supported the measure and would have signed it into law.
