Is Trump Still Winning? — Guest Post by The Blonde Bombshell

Trump told us during the campaign that we would be “tired of winning”—and apparently that is the case, given all the strum und drang about his signing of the Omnibus (not the budget). Evidently, Twitter went on fire, with people posting very pointed remarks to the effect that they were going to “dump Trump” despite being stalwart supporters until about 1 PM on Friday, March 23, 2018.

So you are tired of talks with North Korea (and there is circumstantial evidence that Trump met with Kim Jung-un during his Asia trip, a meeting facilitated by China). You’re tired of that NK may no longer be a nuclear threat. You much preferred it when every morning had the potentiality of dawning with a refrain of “Goodbye, Seattle.”

You’re tired of the roll back of EPA’s onerous regulations. You would much rather roll the dice that the EPA could come down like a ton of bricks and call your backyard a “wetland” when all you wanted to do was add on the deck your wife has been asking for the past twenty years.

You’re tired of the wall, which will be funded in the Omnibus, by the way, thanks to the sleight of hand that these types of bills promulgate.

You’re tired of protections of religious liberty. You would much rather that bakers make the damn cake and that nuns pay for birth control.

You’re tired of space exploration.

You’re tired of protections against abortion. Sure, Planned Parenthood was funded, but don’t forget we are waiting for a report that will put that organization back into the Stone Age.

And it’s not even been two months, and you’re sick and tired of having more of your own money in your paycheck.

Do you want me to go on? Trump has a stupendous list of achievements and we should be standing up every day to applaud what he’s done or down on our knees, to thank the good Lord that we escaped the presidency of one HRC.

You Trump supporters are pretty fickle. Some observers have noted that Obama’s base let him pretty much do anything, up to and including giving Iran untold treasure, but Trump’s base is ready to take a powder after being upset about his signing a bill that has the life cycle of six months. Oh, when would six months expire? Let’s see, that would be right before the mid-term elections. Maybe there is some deeper thinking that is going on. Maybe there is a method to the madness.

Okay, Trump base, get it together. First of all, you have to realize that the Congress critters were ones that you voted in. Okay, go ahead, mount a defense. Even with Trump’’ magnificent speech in PA, and pleading with voters to vote for Saccone, the photogenic, youthful Democrat, the one who will vote with “Chuck and Nancy,” won the election. I’m looking at you, Trump base. What do you expect when you vote in someone who is “cooler” than the Trump candidate? Granted, Saccone had all the personality of a bag of potatoes, but he would have stood firm behind Trump and his agenda. Saccone, or all his flaws, is a Patriot.

Trump’s goal is not to be another run-of-the-mill GOP president. Don’t forget, we could have had Little Marco or Low-Energy Jeb! Trump’s goal is to be transformational. He intends to restore the Republic. He is working to take the country back from the grip of the Deep State. Sure, go ahead and laugh, but the incumbent elites have been in positions of power for a very long time, and they have to be called something. Andrew McCabe was a creature of the Swamp, there is no doubt, and perhaps a military tribunal will bear that out (it is not likely that the public will have the satisfaction of a civilian trial for all the denizens of the Swamp, as satisfactory as that may be). Gitmo is in the throes of remodeling and expanding. Do you think it is to make everything comfy for MS-13?

The charges against McCabe can start with treason and end with sedition. In prior times, these were worthy of the death penalty, but Americans have gotten soft, and probably would rather see him mopping floors at the DC YMCA for six months. Yes, that is the appropriate punishment to conspire to unseat a duly elected sitting president. Nothing too harsh because that would make him feel bad.

Everyone who is upset that Trump signed the Omnibus should take a deep breath and think about what the true goal is. The Swamp did not come into power overnight, and it is going to take a lot of ingenious engineering to take it down. Don’t forget the Executive Order of December 21, 2017. This is the beginning of the end. Assets have been seized. Indictments have been made.

Trust the plan. Enjoy the show.

Who Is Q & Why Might He Matter? — Guest Post by The Blonde Bombshell

The internet is a cauldron of competing ideas. The ones that get the most play are promoted by the legacy media. Under the surface, there are a swarm of websites that hawk so-called “alternative” ideas–alternative in the sense that they do not toe the line that has been plainly and loudly laid out my the MSM mandarins. Questions bubbling beneath the surface are either largely ignored or tamped down by the gatekeepers and remain hidden largely from public view.

The activity of one “Q” could be thrown in the pile of “nothing to see here,” but intriguingly there may definitely something, and something potentially earthshaking and paradigm-shifting, to see here. Mysterious messages started showing up on 4-chan on October 28, 2017 that suggested the detention (not arrest) of HRC and asked questions about recent donations made by a prominent globalist billionaire. Q did not sign his communications until November 2, and a trip code for verification was not put in place until November 9. It is purely speculative whether Q was the author of the earlier posts.

October started with the puzzling shooting in Las Vegas and continued with the baffling deaths of some witnesses of that shooting. Catalonia voted for independence but was blocked by Spain. There was a plague in Madagascar. Raqqa was liberated from ISIS. There was the run-up to the run-off election in Alabama for a senate seat. The president, posing for pictures after a meeting with military leaders, suggested that this period was the “calm before the storm.” There was more going on, of course, but this is just a refresher. In terms of the news cycle, October was a thousand years ago and almost as forgotten.

At the end of this confusing month, in comes Q. The choice of “Q” is thought to be a reference to a high-level security clearance. Given the content of Q’s posts, it seems likely that if Q is not in the inner circle of the president, he is very, very close. If Q has such a high-level clearance, what is he doing blabbing on the chans? He hasn’t overtly divulged classified information. Q poses questions, and his followers dissect and try to interpret the various multiple meanings that Q could be alluding to. There is a predictive quality to some of Q’s posts.

Sometimes Q tries to point people in a particular direction to do further research, but the people are deaf to his suggestions. Other times, Q’s meaning is more evident. Q posts can be as short as a few words or a few lines, or longer, heavy with text or code. Q also posts images. A recent image reminded followers of the deep, warm relationship one former candidate for president had with an acknowledged and avowed KKK member. The answers to the questions (“crumbs” or “bread crumbs” in Q-speak) are publicly available and can be found with a little ingenuity and digging. Q will sometimes communicate with anons on the boards, and answer questions or calls for clarification.

Reddit hosts a board dedicated to discussion about Q called CBTS (Calm Before The Storm), referring to the president’s once-cryptic remark. Some made the leap that this had something to do with North Korea. In light of recent events (such as the lost-and-found FBI texts, the still-secret four-page FISA memo, for starters), it seems likely that the storm has to do with dismantling the corrupt power structure of DC. Q’s posts seem to underscore that this a reality, and much of the dismantling is going on behind the scenes and that the public is being purposefully kept in the dark to preserve the republic (much to the chagrin of avid followers).

Q speaks in riddles: “Future proves past.” “Do you believe in coincidences?” “Follow the wives.” “Expand your thinking.” “Alice & Wonderland.” “Who took an undisclosed trip to SA?” “Why would the Chairman of GOOG travel to NK?”

Very early in the Q story there were questions regarding Q’s authenticity. Some said that Q was the result of sophisticated AI (as in the movie War Games; Q said, “Shall we play a game?”). Others posited that it was a LARP (Live Action Role Play)—that Q wasn’t some big patriot, but that he was just another frustrated video game player having some fun. Others cast aspersions on the Q followers as being gullible rubes seeking a savior.

Because of the nature of the information being dealt with, there are mistakes, there is some barking up the wrong trees. There was a kerfluffle when Q posted “DEFCON [1]” on January 8. Those with a military background jumped to the only conclusion they could have, but in Q-speak that was later decoded seems to be: DEFinitive CONfirmation in 1 minute.

Q—which could be one person or a group—offers some solace for frustrated, law-abiding citizens who are tired of seeing their future being swatted away by the globalist agenda. Q offers hope that Something Will Be Done, and Is, in fact, Being Done. Q isn’t only for Americans. The Reddit board attracts comments from people around the world who are watching the storm very carefully, and who have a fervent hope that some of the winds will blow their way and clean up their governments.

There also is a spiritual aspect to Q. Q is prone to quoting scripture and urges people to pray. Oddly, he posted the text of the Lord’s Prayer before the Pope started musing publicly that he thought the crusty piece of text needed an upgrade. On the Reddit CBTS board, a new person often stumbles on and posts something like, “Is it me, or are there a lot of Christians here?” They are informed that yes, indeed, this is a battle between good versus evil, light versus the dark, God versus Lucifer. Followers are praying and fasting for the president and the republic. Whatever Q has done, he has reawakened a spirit in the American people that has been slumbering for far too long.

Why People Seek Out Alt-Media — Guest Post by The Blonde Bombshell

Imagine that you are a passive “consumer” of news, to use the preferred industry lingo. The use of “consume” is telling, admitting news itself has a shelf-life of a bag of chips, and does not necessarily contribute to the core of knowledge that our descendants will call History.

Imagine that you turn on the morning TV shows and are not revolted by the pablum incessantly interrupted with commercial messages, and barely notice that some of the pablum itself is commercial in nature. Radio is also infected with this virus. Even shock-jock personalities are incredibly mundane and do not tread from the sanctioned path.

Perhaps you have a newspaper subscription, rare these days, or like to visit a mainstream news site when you have your morning coffee or glance at when you have a spare moment at the office. It barely registers that the articles and opinion pieces have been carefully colored and curated to communicate a particular narrative. It hardly matters, since after digesting the headlines, you click over to the sports scores or the gossip section for a palate cleanser before retreating into your everyday existence.

Imagine that you like to settle down with a beverage before dinner with the televised Evening News. Because you are not curious, you don’t click on rival stations to hear the same news packaged in almost the exact same way, with the exact commercial breaks, often hawking identical products. Maybe before bed, you will watch a self-styled comedian delivering news and commentary disguised as entertainment, hammering home the same messages you heard since daybreak.

One of the more popular themes of what purports to be be news is how terrible Donald Trump is, what an awful person he is, and how dare he be president. Take one example of Trump’s allegedly reprehensible nature. He talks a tough line against immigrants. What he means are those “immigrants” who have an actual home somewhere else or who may not be able to substantially contribute to the US economy. He is not against all immigrants, or all immigration. In fact, two of his wives are immigrants. He was able to somehow see past this black spot on their characters and set up housekeeping with them.

If the media had any sense at all, they would take pains to report on this fact, and examine Trump’s policy proposals in the light that he is obviously not against all immigration, but is opposed to a very specific type of immigration that has the potential to rent the fabric of US society. There should be an active and ongoing public debate about what we value and wish to preserve as a nation and this debate should not be shut down by the media’s refusal to report.

If you are a passive consumer of news, you are likely not aware of other sources of news, as these sources—if recognized by the mainstream media at all—are roundly ridiculed. Infowars.com falls into this category, and to a certain extent, The Drudge Report. Infowars is the brainchild of Alex Jones, who is the well-intended if bombastic host. He runs through headlines from the mainstream media around the world and opines on the coming of the “New World Order.” If you have not heard of this, recall the words of President George Herbert Walker Bush. He did not invent the NWO, but he was and is and ardent advocate of the one world everything.

A personality like Alex Jones is easily laughed off as being an uneducated buffoon. Youtube, for instance, demonetized the Infowars channel and the channels of its contributors. Demonetizing these stations (and others that do not hew to the official narrative) means shutting down their advertising revenue. To make up the lost revenue, Infowars sells tee-shirts and vitamins, and for this, the entire enterprise is further delegitimized in the eyes of mainstream media. But the activities of the mainstream media are in large extent underwritten by Big Pharma. Ironic, no?

The Drudge Report also falls into this category. People who have been steeped in the musings of NPR and its for-profit three-letter counterparts disdain The Drudge Report, although it is a coup to be linked on the famous black-and-white website. It has been suggested that both Drudge and Infowars are “controlled opposition”—that they are allowed airspace to offer an outlet for the crazies. Whether this is true is open for debate, but there are trending stories that both sites skirt or ignore entirely.

If you are a passive consumer of the news, you may not know that there are innumerable websites and Youtube channels that rank below Infowars and Drudge that report on matters widely ignored or otherwise untouched by the mainstream media. One such sensational avenue are the posts made by one “QAnon” on 4chan and 8chan. New York magazine reported that QAnon is a conspiracy theorist. The term “conspiracy theory” was weaponized by the CIA as a largely successful attempt to shut down skeptical inquiry in the days following the release of the Warren Commission report that cemented the single-shooter narrative for the assassination of a sitting president.

QAnon offers an alternate prism to interpret modern current events, from the mysterious shooting incident in Las Vegas, to the Saudi roundups, to the mysterious flights that may or may not be heading to Gitmo. Every bit of what Q reports is curious, and if Q is not real or the output of a particularly fervid imagination, the public would like to know. Commentators who have kept up with Q story are Lionel and Tracy Beanz. Drudge is largely mute on these subjects, although Infowars covers it.

Below the activity of these citizen reporters and opinionators are those who offer a mishmash of UFOlogy, arguments supporting the existence of reptilian bloodlines, and wild but elegantly reasoned flat-earth theories. While Infowars can be ridiculed, those who offer completely alternative viewpoints are not even allowed to sit at the big-people’s table. While a sane person may repudiate the far-out websites, these websites offer the legitimate alt-media cover to continue the discussion with their followers unmolested and untrammeled by the mainstream media, which is why people are seeking these sites out. If some loony-toon is lumped in with Alex Jones and Lionel, so much the better. If everyone is colored with the same tainted brush—everyone is left alone.

At the nub of the alt-media is the search for truth. The truth is known to be elusive and wily, but the truthseekers do not care. They are willing to turn over every rock and follow every lead. They are willing to formulate and theorize and be wrong. They are willing to self-correct. They are willing to consider new evidence. They are willing to ask questions. They are willing to learn. They don’t insist on degrees and credentials. They take honest interest at face value, and anyone is welcome to join the battle, fight, movement, or discussion.

People want what the mainstream media used to do, and these alternate sites seem to provide it. The mainstream media have lost their reportorial chops, but they are skilled in delivering mealy-mouthed half-truths. They don’t think much of their audience—who passively consume the tripe they have on offer. But perhaps, they are made for each other.

Married Priests And The Impending HR Disaster — Guest Post by The Blonde Bombshell

The so-called vocation crisis has been reported on here, here, and here.

The irreligious press has an answer. Of course, they say, the Catholic Church has to get with the times and either allow women to be ordained or let male priests marry. Translated from media-speak, “let priests marry” is “let them have sex”—which nicely dispatches with that troublesome vow of celibacy. In the media’s current narrative, of course priestly men will marry women; but one could very well expect to see male priests with blushing male “brides”.

The atheistic media is off to bad start in offering their (unasked for) prescription to combat the declining number of priests. They succumb to the temptation to equate “vocation” with “job” as in “vocational training.” In the religious sense, a vocation is related to God’s calling to direct one’s life in a particular way in the service of the Church. Lost in the debate is that marriage itself is a vocation. What the secular press is suggesting, if not demanding, is that a man have two vocations—two callings—two directions for his heart.

There are some who have slipped into the Catholic priesthood through the Anglican backdoor. The fact that there are exceptions doesn’t mean that the rule has to be changed. Additionally, the permanent diaconate offers a path to ministry for married (or single) men over the age of 35. It is categorically false that married men are being shut out from serving ministerial roles. In fact, if the crisis is so crippling, this is an avenue that should be more thoroughly investigated.

With these considerations set aside, imagine that starting tomorrow married men can enter the church to serve as priests, and by extension, brothers. Of course it would be discriminatory to allow priests to marry but not the friars. Things to consider:

1. Wages. The Bureau of Labor Statistics lumps in all clergy, with a median salary of $45,740 (2016). Salaries for Catholic priests can fall about $10,000 behind, in part because they are not expected to support a family. It is potentially much more profitable to be a rabbi or Protestant minister, but less so for imams.

2. Housing. Catholic priests can live in the rectory, or if they are brothers, in a priory. Adding a wife and children to the equation is going to strain Church resources, and small children necessarily interrupt a life of meditation and prayer. Will they live communally? Will other arrangements have to be made?

3. Healthcare. Having a wife in most cases means having children, and childbirth costs in the United States are more than anywhere else in the world. Someone is going to have to pay for it.

4. Education. Some provision will have to be made for educating the children of the priests. At the very least, there should be tuition relief for Catholic schooling, from K-12, and perhaps even at the college level.

5. Moving costs/change of station. If bishop says, “Go”, the priest can no longer put his belongings in a modest bag and catch the next bus, but he will have to fold up his marital assets (i.e., worldly possessions) and incur the expense of moving house and home, which will be billed to the diocese.

6. On call/time off. The priest or brother doesn’t have a “weekend” as most people do, and even on a day off, a priest know that an emergency can arise and he will have to flee to someone’s bedside or hold someone’s hand. Ah, the secular press will cry out, but do not Protestant pastors have to juggle family needs with that of the flock? A Protestant can happily die without last rites, but for a Catholic to pass beyond the velvet curtain without the extreme unction is a completely different matter.

7. Marriage during seminary. If priests can marry, maybe they will when they are at seminary. Before seminary? How will the female factor affect the formation, not only of the man but also of his cohort?

Married priests will be a substantial drag on the Church’s purse almost immediately. To cope, more land, buildings, and treasure will be have to be sold at a much faster clip than they are now to cover these (perfectly avoidable) expenses. While there may be a net increase in the number of priests, there will be fewer actual churches for them to serve in.

What is missing from this debate is God. What is God’s plan? Recall the words of one Joseph Ratzinger:

From the crisis of today the Church of tomorrow will emerge — a Church that has lost much. She will become small and will have to start afresh more or less from the beginning…Undoubtedly it will discover new forms of ministry and will ordain to the priesthood approved Christians who pursue some profession. In many smaller congregations or in self-contained social groups, pastoral care will normally be provided in this fashion. Along-side this, the full-time ministry of the priesthood will be indispensable as formerly. But in all of the changes at which one might guess, the Church will find her essence afresh and with full conviction in that which was always at her center: faith in the triune God, in Jesus Christ, the Son of God made man, in the presence of the Spirit until the end of the world. In faith and prayer she will again recognize the sacraments as the worship of God and not as a subject for liturgical scholarship.

Vocations are declining, except for orders like the Dominicans, who openly embrace tradition. One solution to the crisis is to look backward and not forward, and to try to recapture and revive what has been drowned in the backwash of contemporary culture. It would be a costly and foolish mistake to do otherwise.
