italeave-gap-growingQuick post which I will be updating once the “fog of war” begins clearing.

UPDATE 5: 01:30 5 December 2016

According to the BBC, it would appear that the NO got 60+%. This is a huge rebuke to the TRANSRATIONAL Europhiles. (see here)

With most ballots counted, the No vote leads with 60% against 40% for Yes.

The turnout was nearly 70%, in a vote that was seen as a chance to register discontent with the prime minister.

“Good luck to us all,” Mr Renzi told reporters. He said he would tell a Cabinet meeting on Monday afternoon that he was resigning, then tender his resignation to the Italian president.

With this result, it might be hard put together a coalition for Renzi with smaller parties in order to form a caretaker government to get them to the next scheduled elections. If the smaller parties enter into this coalition, they could get wiped out in a years time being part of a very unpopular government. Actually, same goes for Renzi’s Democratic Party. It is in the interest of these smaller parties to be in opposition. Therefore, the odds of early elections is increasing geometrically since it might be hard for Renzi, or whoever else (from the Renzi’s party, since they have a majority in the lower chamber) to form a stable government. So the only way forward might just be early elections. And that will take place in February of 2017 or three short months from now.

TOP OF THE POST

First in Austria. It would appear that the Austrians elected the TRANSRATIONAL candidate. The RATIONALIST Herr Hofer has conceded. This is sad for a country whose history should have made the population a bit more “aware” of the impending doom that the INTERNATIONAL “uncontrolled migration” forces are foisting upon them.

Of the mitigating aspects of this defeat, the OBJECTIVE REALITY is that the Austrian presidency is a ceremonial post. This election means nothing as the President has no powers and is just a figure head. Yet this result will have practical implications in that it will serve as a “invasion magnate” for the hordes of “refugees” flooding into the European heartland.

The good news is that Herr Hofer’s party, the aptly named Freedom Party is leading in the polls to form the next government. Although it is not polling at the levels that would allow it to form a government, they will have 6 months to 1 year to get those numbers up. And with the new “rapefugee” arrivals streaming in from across the Italian border, this should propel the Freedom Party vote close to those levels.

And while we are on the subject, more clarity about who is behind the “rapefugees”. Over at the catholic Zero Hedge website, we get this post titled: Something Strange Is Taking Place In The Mediterranean. (see here) Here is the lede and next three paragraphs:

Something Strange Is Taking Place In The Mediterranean

NGOs are smuggling immigrants into Europe on an industrial scale

For two months, using marinetraffic.com, we have been monitoring the movements of ships owned by a couple of NGOs, and, using data from data.unhcr.org. We have kept track of the daily arrivals of African immigrants in Italy. It turned out we were witness of a big scam and an illegal human traffic operation.

NGOs, smugglers, the mafia in cahoots with the European Union have shipped thousands of illegals into Europe under the pretext of rescuing people, assisted by the Italian coast guard which coordinated their activities.

Human traffickers  contact the Italian coast guard in advance to receive support and to pick up their dubious cargo. NGO ships are directed to the “rescue spot” even as those to be rescued are still in Libya. The 15 ships that we observed are owned or leased by NGOs have regularly been seen to leave their Italian ports, head south, stop short of reaching the Libyan coast, pick up their human cargo, and take course back 260 miles to Italy even though the  port of Zarzis in Tunis is just 60 mile away from the rescue spot.

The organizations in question are: MOAS, Jugend Rettet, Stichting Bootvluchting, Médecins Sans Frontières, Save the Children, Proactiva Open Arms, Sea-Watch.org, Sea-Eye and Life Boat.

So it would appear that the Renzi government is in on the human trafficing scam.

All one can do is ask: WHY?

Which brings us to the good news of the night. The Italian REFERENDUM ended as predicted. The NO vote was overwhelming. It could have capture up to 60% of the vote. As you recall, the NO vote was supported by the opposition political parties, parties that want a “smaller Europe”.

As for what is in store, once again we go over to the Zero Hedge website to get this update:

So now that Renzi has stepped down here are three possible scenarios, via the WSJ:

1. New Renzi Government – this is now unlikely after Renzi’s farewell speech:

Italian President Sergio Mattarella could ask Mr. Renzi to reshuffle his cabinet and form a new government. However, Mr. Renzi has said in recent days that he is unlikely to accept such an option, given that he would be in a much-weakened position following the vote.

2. A Caretaker Administration:

 Mr. Mattarella could ask someone else to lead a new government with a limited mandate to oversee the drafting of a new electoral law and pass the 2017 budget. One candidate is Economy Minister Pier Carlo Padoan, who could help soothe markets that have been nervous about political instability following a no vote. Others include Pietro Grasso, speaker of Italy’s Senate, and Dario Franceschini, the current culture minister.

3. Electoral-Law Snarl:

Major political parties are pushing to change an electoral law passed last year that would give extra seats in Parliament to any party winning 40% or more of the vote. That measure was intended to make for more stable governments. Establishment politicians now worry that it could help the populist 5 Star Movement gain power and want to rewrite the rules before any new national election.

What I think will happen is that the Italian president Mr. Matterella, who is beholden to Renzi for getting him elected, will most likely ask the one and same, Mr. REnzi to form a caretaker government until the next elections. The next elections could come as early as spring 2017, but I wouldn’t bet on that. I suspect that they will be pushed back to early 2018, since the ESTABLISHMENT will want to hold onto the reigns of power for as long as possible.

This is it in a nutshell. Will be updating as more information come online.

What is interesting to watch is the Austrian election breakdown as we start seeing the real numbers. The focus should be on where the swing vote, that turned out the outcome from 52%-48% pro Hofer to 52%-48% against. Gotta wonder where the additional anti-Hofer votes came from.

UPDATE 1: 17:00 4 December 2016

Results coming in from Austrian election. Here is how they did it:

austria-i

UPDATE 2: 17:10 4 December 2016

And now, all eyes turn to the Italian banking sector. The Italian stock market opens up in 6 hours time. (see here)

italeave-i

UPDATE 3: 17:10 4 December 2016

So after you make a BIG STINKING MESS, ruin peoples live and destroy their countries and cultures, what comes after?

italeave-ii

UPDATE 4: 17:25 4 December 2016

The margin of the ITALIAN REFERENDUM is YUUUUUGE.

If anyone is holding the Euro currency, I would suggest a line from Trading Places: Sell Mortimer, Sell.

And by the way, that little dab of green in the upper right hand corner, that is the border with Austria, where all those “rapefugees” will now be passing through on their way to jihad. Just sayin…

Oh and this…

If anyone is holding the Euro currency, I would suggest a line from Trading Places: Sell Mortimer, Sell.

NORMALIZATION PROCESS™ : The Italian and Austrian Preview…

eu-losersThis comes from our friends at the catholic Zero Hedge website.(see original here)

As you will recall, today is a RED LETTER DAY on the Deus Ex Machina blog. Today, the ITALIAN REFERENDUM and the re-vote of the AUSTRIAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION will be held. Both these events are part of what we call the NORMALIZATION PROCESS™.

In the below post, you dear reader are provided a background piece about the significance of these above two EVENTS. Naturally, the ITALIAN REFERENDUM is more important, even though it’s not binding in and of itself.

The importance comes from first, the vacuum that will be created if the Italian Prime Minister, one Matteo Renzi actually goes through and resigns, as he has promised. This humble blogger predicts that Renzi will lose the ITALIAN REFERENDUM and then go back on his promise and not resign. He will not resign because he and the ESTABLISHMENT that he fronts would most likely give up control of the country. And we know what happened the last time an Italian Prim Minister went ROGUE and the ESTABLISHMENT lost control of ITALY (see here).

Of bigger importance in the ITALIAN REFERENDUM is what is known as the BIG MO, or momentum. What we are seeing in the Western world is what we term on this blog as the RATIONALISTS coming to power. And even though your humble blogger does not consider Beppe Grillo or his 5Star Movement as RATIONALIST, his party program, like ditching the Euro currency and returning back to the LIRA, is as RATIONAL as it gets. Therefore, we can safely say that a vote for Grillo is a step in the right direction and that right direction is what we call the NORMALIZATION PROCESS™.

As for AUSTRIA, the significance of this election is being understated by the MainStream FAKE NEWS Media. What we are seeing in Austria is the first instance where a RATIONALIST candidate will become a PRESIDENT of a Western EU country since the Second World War. This is significant since it will finally break the TRANSRATIONAL NARRATIVE that anyone or party who/that adopts a RATIONAL party platform, is automatically labeled as Far Right, and therefore can’t get elected. This next Austrian Presidency will also help other RATIONAL governments like those in Poland and Hungary in that it will take some of the pressure off, pressure that is being applied by the LEFTIST INTERNATIONAL, funded by people like George Soros and the UN NGO’s.

There is also an added significance cominng from the AUSTRIAN VOTE. The added  significance is due to the LEFTIST/COMMUNIST FRANCOIS HOLLANDE has decided not to run for a second term in France (see here). This development leaves two candidates that can be easily described as RATIONALISTS to contest for this office. Therefore, what will be at stake in the French Presidential Election held on the 23 of April and 7th of May in 2017, is a vote for the ESTABLISHMENT (practicing Catholic Fillon) or ANTI-ESTABLISHMENT (practicing Catholic Le Pen). And the later, Marine Le Pen has already stated that as soon as she comes to power, she will hold a REFERENDUM about France leaving the Eurozone.

That is all for now. As soon as results start coming in, I will post them. We should expect to start seeing results in about 9 hours time.

Here is the Zero Hedge post…

Tomorrow’s Vote In Italy Will Be A “Wide-Ranging F**k Off”, And It’s Just The Start…

Submitted by Nick Giambruno via InternationalMan.com,

Tomorrow, December 4, Italy is holding a referendum that will determine the fate of the entire European Union.

Donald Trump’s victory—which shocked Europe’s political and media elite—gives the populists backing the “No” side of Italy’s referendum the political rocket fuel they need for a virtually guaranteed win.

That momentum will be all but impossible to reverse. Anti-elite sentiment is rising on both sides of the Atlantic. And I bet the global populist revolution will continue.

If Italians buck the establishment—and it looks like they will—it will clear a path for a populist party to take power and for Italy to exit the euro.

If that happens, the fallout will be catastrophic for global markets. The Financial Times recently put it this way:

An Italian exit from the single currency would trigger the total collapse of the eurozone within a very short period.

It would probably lead to the most violent economic shock in history, dwarfing the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy in 2008 and the 1929 Wall Street crash.

If the FT is even partially right, we’re looking at a possible stock market crash of historic proportions. This is why we’re watching the December 4 referendum so closely.

The referendum is meant to concentrate more power in Italy’s central government. On that point alone, everyone should oppose it. The centralization of power never leads to good things.

A “Yes” vote is effectively a vote of confidence in the current pro-EU Italian establishment. This is what the global elite wants.

A “No” vote is how the average Italian can give the finger to the faceless EU bureaucrats in Brussels, whom many blame—quite correctly—for their problems.

Trump’s win has been a double whammy for Italy’s pro-EU establishment.

First, it emboldens the populist forces fighting the referendum.

Second, it humiliates and politically castrates Matteo Renzi, the current Italian prime minister. Renzi took a rare step when he openly endorsed Hillary Clinton. He was the only European leader to do so.

As one of Renzi’s rivals said after Trump’s victory, “Matteo Renzi is politically finished from today, he’s a dead man walking.”

Other Italian politicians are furious that he weakened Italy’s standing with the new Trump administration.

It’s hard to see how Renzi could get himself out of the hole he’s dug.

It Started as a Joke

In 2007, Beppe Grillo, an Italian actor and comedian, launched Vaffanculo Day. “Vaffanculo” is Italian for “f*** off.”

Grillo and his followers used V-Day to bluntly express their displeasure with Italian establishment politicians, using imagery from the movie V for Vendetta.

Now, what started out as a joke has become Italy’s most popular political party…

V-Day helped organize Italians frustrated with their political system. It gave birth to the Five Star Movement, Italy’s new populist political party.

Grillo’s Five Star Movement—or M5S, its Italian acronym—is anti-globalist, anti-euro, and anti-establishment. It doesn’t neatly fall into the left–right political paradigm.

According to the latest polls, M5S is now the most popular party in Italy. It won mayoral elections in Rome and Turin earlier this year.

M5S is riding a wave of populist anger at entrenched political elites over economic stagnation. Italy has had virtually no productive growth since joining the eurozone in 1999.

M5S blames Italy’s chronic lack of growth on the euro. A large plurality of Italians agrees.

M5S has promised to hold a vote to leave the euro and return to Italy’s old currency, the lira, as soon as it’s in power. Under the current circumstances, it would probably pass.

After the Brexit vote and Trump’s win, M5S has joyfully predicted that Renzi will be the next casualty in the global populist revolution.

Grillo recently wrote:

It’s crazy. This is the explosion of an era. It’s the apocalypse of the media, TV, the big newspapers, the intellectuals, the journalists… This is a wide-ranging F*** off. Trump has pulled off an incredible V-Day… There are similarities between this American story and the Movement.

A “No” vote in the December 4 referendum means M5S could come to power in a matter of months.

Melting Like a Gelato in the August Sun

A populist tsunami is about to wash through Europe. It will drastically change the Continent’s political landscape in a way not seen since before World War II.

This wave will flush away traditional “mainstream” parties and usher in anti-establishment populists who want to leave the European Union.

It’s already hit the UK in the form of Brexit, killing David Cameron’s pro-EU government in the process.

Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Slovenia, and Greece already have populist, Eurosceptic—or “non-mainstream”—parties in power.

Italy is the next flashpoint.

A “No” vote in Italy is virtually assured at this point.

But it won’t be the end of the anti-elite surge. Voters in Europe’s biggest countries could soon throw out their “mainstream” parties in favor of populist and Eurosceptic alternatives.

Here’s the rundown…

Austria

Austria is holding a presidential election, also on December 4. It’s actually a redo of an election held in May, where a populist candidate, Norbert Hofer of the Freedom Party, barely lost.

Austrian courts found irregularities in the results and ordered a prompt new election. But when opinion polls showed the populist candidate in the lead, the government delayed the vote until December 4, giving a lame excuse about faulty adhesive on absentee ballots. Despite the foot-dragging, Mr. Hofer looks set to win the December 4 vote.

France

France has a presidential election next spring. There’s a chance that Marine Le Pen, leader of the Eurosceptic National Front party, will do better than many expect. After more than a decade of disappointment under presidents François Hollande and Nicolas Sarkozy, French voters are clamoring for something different.

Spain

Spain recently re-elected incumbent Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy. However, Spanish voters fled traditional political parties en masse for new populist upstarts Podemos and Ciudadanos. So Rajoy was unable to form a majority government.

Rajoy now leads a severely weak minority government. The political power of the Spanish populist parties is only expected to grow.

Germany

Angela Merkel, the chancellor of Germany, embodies the European establishment more than any other politician. Her party suffered a series of stinging defeats in regional elections this year, mostly because of her signature lax immigration policies, which have flooded Germany with migrants.

Merkel’s troubles have only helped the Alternative for Germany, a new populist party surging in popularity. The party could pose a real problem for Merkel in the 2017 federal elections.

The Netherlands

As the Netherlands approaches elections in March, Geert Wilders’s Party for Freedom, which advocates leaving the EU, is basically tied in opinion polls with the establishment parties.

How to Profit from the Tsunami…

As populist, Eurosceptic parties surge, the entire European Union is looking shakier by the day.

One Italian politician correctly put it this way: “The euro is melting away like a gelato left out in the August sun.”

Our thesis for the collapse of the EU not only stands… it’s getting stronger and stronger.

There are potentially severe consequences in the currency and stock markets. We are approaching a global financial meltdown of historical proportions. It could strike America on December 4, 2016, as Italian voters decide the fate of the European Union itself.

It could either wipe out a big part of your savings… or be the fortune-building opportunity of a lifetime.

Cardinal Muller Sides With Christ! (With Update)

BREAKING

card-muller-1

Translated form Polonia Christiana website by yours truly. Original Polish HERE. (emphasis added)

Card. Muller on “Doubts” of the four Cardinals: unbreakable marriage bond as basis of teaching.

(Kard. Muller o „Wątpliwościach” czterech kardynałów: nierozerwalność małżeństwa podstawą nauczania)

The Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith commented on the letter of the four cardinals asking Pope Francis to clarify doubts on certain points of the Amoris laetitia. Card. Gerhard Ludwig Müller said that the exhortation should not be interpreted as if the teaching of earlier Popes and the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith about the divorced and remarried, were of no importance (Ed note. not actual) . The prelate pointed to the unequivocal position on this issue by Pope Benedict XVI, and then Cardinal. Joseph Ratzinger in 1993.

For now, the Vatican will not respond to a letter from the four cardinals, which are asking from the Pope greater transparency regarding the divorced and remarried. – The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith acts and speaks with Papal authority and cannot participate in a conflict of views – said the prefect Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller. In an interview with the Austrian Catholic agency “Kathpress”, he  pointed out that in this respect, there is a “risk of polarization.”

Card. Müller pointed out that the letter to the pope is personal. He noted that the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith may seek to mitigate the controversy, since it is responsible for all issues concerning faith and morals.

In the letter entitled “Dubia [pl. Doubts]- In search of explanations: the call to dissipate the uncertainties in Amoris laetitia, “Cardinals: American Raymond Leo Burke, Germany – Walter Brandmüller and Joachim Meisner and Italy Carlo Caffarra expressed doubts on certain points of the papal exhortation, i.e. that now you can in some cases grant absolution and consequently allow for Holy Communion to those who have ended validly marriages, and now they live with another person and have sex relations. The Cardinals emphasized that the aim of the initiative is to “continue the reflection and discussion” with “the whole people of God.” The letter was sent to the hands of not only the Pope, but likewise to Cardinal. Müller.

In an interview with the “Kathpress”, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has called for a more objective debate on Amoris laetitia. At the moment it is important for each of us to remain objective and not lead to polarization, and especially not to inflame the matter further. – said the Cardinal. Müller.

The question most in dispute is the point whether, after Amoris laetitia, people who have terminated a valid marriage and are now living with another person, in reasonable individual cases may be admitted to Holy Communion, Cardinal Müller did not answer directly. He stressed, however, that the exhortation (AL) should not be interpreted as if the teachings of earlier Popes and the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on the subject were no longer binding. (Wazne = in force or binding)

He recalled an official response to the pastoral letter of the Congregation to the three German bishops in 1993, pertaining to the reception of communion by divorced people living in new relationships. Then the Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the then Prefect of the Congregation, rejected the bishops, who were in favor of the possibility of Communion, in some cases, to divorced people living in new relationships.

– The indissolubility of marriage must be the unshakable foundation of the teaching for every pastoral accompaniment – emphasized the Cardinal. Müller pointing out that “Francis wants all of the marriages and families that are in crisis, to find help, in a manner according to the will of the merciful God.”

Card. Müller also rejected reports that in Vatican, there are supposedly being fought tough battles. – The rumors and stereotypes about the behind the scenes power struggles behind the high walls of the Vatican, between the reformers and the stalwarts, show just how rotten is the thinking and perception of the world, as it relates to power. It is about the victory of truth, and not about the triumph of power – said the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

UPDATE: 01:30 2 December 2016

Now that the Card. Muller interview is filtering into the wider Church, I am posting commentary from Steve Skojec at the One Peter Five post.

The link is here, which I am providing for your information.

UPDATE 2: 02:30 2 December 2016

Here is the commentary from Deacon Nick Donnelly via EWTN (see here), with which I concur. I think his interpretation is OBJECTIVELY CORRECT.

During the interview Cardinal Müller signals as strongly as he can in the circumstances that he is on the side of the four cardinals who submitted the dubia to Pope Francis. He does this by going out of his way to emphasise that Amoris Laetitia must be interpreted according to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith’s Letter to the Bishops of the Catholic Church concerning the reception of Holy Communion by the divorced and remarried members of the faithful (1994). This definitive reiteration of the Church’s magisterial doctrine on communion for the divorced and remarried was an explicit correction of the main architect of Amoris Laetitia’s “innovative” approach to the issue, Cardinal Kasper. Cardinal Müller has just stated categorically that Amoris Laetitia cannot introduce any change to the Church’s doctrine and pastoral practice.

UPDATE 3: 03:00 2 December 2016

More clarity… (see here)

The prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) has said that he will not respond to the dubia submitted by four cardinals about the interpretation of Amoris Laetitia, unless Pope Francis instructs him to do so.

The “spirit” of Vatican II A Product Of The Demoralization Process?

Guest post today. It just as well could have been two, very long ones. So consider yourselves lucky, dear readers. But I will not post anything tomorrow, so consider this weekend reading.

First, over at the One Peter Five blog, a post written by Hilary White appears. (see here) This post is a very good analysis of what is waiting for the Catholic Church in the not too distant future. I agree with most of what is written and therefore highly recommend that you read it. Consider it an introduction to the post below.

One observation though. What is typical in posts of this nature and this one as well, is that they give the impression that the future is STATIC. One can say: pre-DETERMINED. And you all know what this humble blogger thinks about DETERMINISM! (see here) But I digress… Specifically, these types of posts depict a future that is already set in stone to a large extent, one can say.

The outcome is already DETERMINED, was the thought that ran through my mind as I was reading it.

Yet, your humble blogger knows that DETERMINISM is a false “religion” and that the ability of God’s creation for rational, abstract thought combined with their God given FREE WILL introduces a lot of VOLITILITY into any pseudo-DETERMINISTIC model.

The VOLITITLITY in turn, is something that can be understood and dare I say, even measured. The manner in which God’s children, who incidentally were created in His image, can come to understand the manner in which this VOLITILITY will assert itself. And this VOLITILITY MUST assert itself according to thenon-material laws and processes that regulate the visibilium omnium (e.g. the laws of physics – classical mechanics and quantum mechanics, laws of mathematics, rules of logic, etc.)”, or what we call the et Invisibilium. (see here)

If not, trash-heap of history.

Yet Our Lord told us that the gates of hell shall not prevail. So in that sense, this pre-DETERMINED RESULT is REAL.

So what we have in the et Invisibilium is nothing more than a statement of what is defined as UNIVERSAL (existent or operative everywhere or under all conditions). Therefore, if we understand the UNIVERSAL underlying mechanisms at work in any given OBJECTIVE PROCESS, we will be able to better predict that PROCESS going forward.

But that is not all. If we can then go and disseminate that information as to the UNIVERSAL elements at work underpinning said PROCESS, then what we have done is provide OBJECTIVE and VERIFYABLE information upon which other individuals, through the exercise of their FREE WILL, are able to react and further effect that PROCESS going forward.

Making the PROCESS itself DYNAMIC.

To this end, I am re-publishing a post that was written by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com, and appeared at the catholic Zero Hedge website. This post deals with the same PROCESS as that Hilary White’s explains in her above linked post. The only difference is that while Hilary focuses on that sub-set that we call the ECCLESIASTICAL area of human endeavor, Brandon focuses on the POLITICAL and GOVERNANCE part. Yet both are explaining the same PROCESS.

What is of added value in Brandon’s post is that it provides us a historical CONTEXT (contained in the video above) for the PROCESS that is transpiring in the different areas of the Visibilium Omnium.

A couple of observations. The video above is an interview with a Soviet KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov. The video is dated 1984.

What is of interest is that the information that Mr. Bezmenov provides is OBJECTIVELY VERIFIABLE. In other words, we have been OBSERVING it for the past 32 years. Or to be more precise, it’s OBJECTIVE CORRECTNESS has withstood the test of time, as they say.

While Mr. Bezmenov’s focus in this video is on the Soviet era propaganda and the destabilization efforts against the United States, notice that the “template” has been developed for a generic country. In other words, it can be applied to any organized state (think The Vatican) that the Soviet Union saw as its threat. Or rather to the underlying principles that serve as the foundation to that state.

Next, it would appear that the Soviet Union tapped into, and took advantage of a wider PHENOMENON, or what Mr. Bezmenov called the International Communist Conspiracy. Yet individuals who comprised this Conspiracy were considered useful idiots by the KGB. The people who the KGB really wanted to recruit were not the useful idiots, but rather those that are described as follows:

Cynical egocentric people, who can look into your eyes with angelic expression and tell you a lie. These are the most recruit-able people. People who lack moral principles, who are either too greedy or suffer from self importance. They feel that they matter a lot. These are the people who the KGB wanted very much to recruit.

Does this fit the psychological profile of any one that we deal with on this blog?

But by far the greatest value of this video is in that it provides us with an understanding this present-day PROCESS. The reason being, the present-day PROCESS is nothing more than the extention of the same PROCESS that Mr. Bezmenov explained in this 1984 video.

And what was the ROOT COMPONANT of this KGB instigated “DEMORALIZATION PROCESS”? Here is how Mr. Bezmenov explains it (begins at the 5:00 mark):

What it basically means (DEMORALIZATION PROCESS) is to change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent, that despite their abundance of information, no one is able to come to any sensible conclusions, in the interest of defending themselves, their family, their community and their country. It’s a great brain washing process which goes very slow and is devided into 4 basic stages. The first one being DEMORALIZATION, it takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years that it requires to educate one generation of students, in the country of your enemy. (…)

I will stop here. What is important to understand at this point is that the KGB had actually identified a UNIVERSAL principle of human behavior. They then took this UNIVERSAL principle and applied it in their PROPOGANDA efforts against their targeted states.

What is of greater importance to understand here though, is that the real aim of this Soviet PROPOGANDA effort was OBJECTIVE REALITY itself. At its ROOT, the entire purpose of this vast organization, i.e. the KGB was to simply create enough confusion in the minds of the citizens of the targeted state, that would bring them to the point were those citizens could not think RATIONALLY.

And the first thought that came to my mind when I was listening to this fragment of the video above is: Francis v. the 4 Cardinals.

To be more specific, what we are seeing in this confrontation is nothing more than a demoralized bishop of Rome and his court, who is/are so confused that even with an abundance of information, he/they can’t or are not able to come to any sensible conclusions, in the interest of defending themselves, their family followers, their community  and their country His Church.

So to sum up the above, it would appear that the “spirit” of Vatican II, whether those promoting “the spirit” were conscious of this or not, is nothing more than the product of this above described DEMORALIZATION PROCESS.

And the promoter’s argumentation bears this out. (see here)

And now to the second post.

Below is the Brandon Smith post. I suggest you dear reader superimpose “Catholic Church” onto “America” and “conservative/liberal” onto “right/left”. Although the situation in the post is not totally analogous to that in the Catholic Church, it is worth reading to understand the general trends and the post provides a good idea about how to counter the enemy’s efforts. (see here)

I will write about this counter-offensive in a follow-up post.

 

The Real Reasons Why Another American Civil War Is Possible

Submitted by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com,

You have to hand it to the regressive left, when they conjure propaganda they really know how to run with it. When their indoctrination doesn’t take, and the public stops them cold with a wall of skepticism, they don’t give up! No — the little buggers double down and go for broke!

I would point out, however, that this seemingly boundless drive to forsake all logic and reason in the name of ideology is not due to these people being special in their ambition. Rather, they are following a somewhat successful historic model; the model of communism. And by successful, I mean successfully destructive.

With Donald Trump on the way to the White House in January, along with a Republican majority in Congress and the Senate, leftists long accustomed to dominating the public narrative through the mainstream media have found themselves without leverage. Now, they must resort to ankle biting with efforts like the “fake news” meme, which is designed to undermine the alternative media through ad hominem.  Obviously this will fail.  It is far too late for the mainstream media to gain back any social capital, and they will have to adapt or die out.

With this avenue closing for the left, the next stage will be direct asymmetrics; they will use subversion at a more localized level; working to provoke “marginalized” groups into taking extreme action in order to illicit a negative and totalitarian response from conservatives.

I am rather well versed on the history of communist insurgencies, and one simple reality that consistently stands out to me is that wherever communist movements exist, war follows.  They may claim to be peaceful in their aims and methods, they may claim to want what is best for society as a whole, but when these movements are denied access to social evolution, they almost always revert to violent means.  The primary reason for this, I believe, is that they really do assume at their very core that their ideal is the ONLY ideal.

They think they are heroes, awakened to a world view that the rest of us are incapable of comprehending. In their minds, anyone seeking to obstruct them is either dangerously ignorant or a fascist hellbent on sabotaging humanity’s “natural progression” into the leftist utopia.   Therefore any and all actions are justified on their part.  They are fighting “evil.”  And, of course, conservatives like you and I are the physical manifestations of that evil.  We are the super-villains that must be destroyed at all costs in the leftist fantasy world.

As I noted in my last article, Order Out Of chaos: The Defeat Of The Left Comes With A Cost, regressives in the form of social justice warriors are currently more cute in their provocations than dangerous, but this is only an early stage of their movement.  When these people do not get what they want, when they realize that propaganda methods are not effective, they will inevitably turn toward militancy and aggressive mob action.  This is the problem with zealots: they are infinitely capable of moral relativity.  They are monsters in people suits just waiting to be unleashed, but made even more dangerous by their self-image as guardians.

There is nothing worse than a psychopath with a desperate desire to nurture you.

After my last article, some readers responded that they understood my basic premise — that the left versus right dynamic is being instigated by global elites, and that this could result in both sides moving to opposing extremes of the political spectrum; communism versus fascism.  That said, they also wanted to know what I thought should be done about the left in particular?  Sure, the elites are the root cause of the threat, but what about all the crazed leftists the elites hide behind and exploit?  Don’t we have to deal with them at some point as well?

I would say yes, though our reaction must be measured or we risk falling into the paradigm trap the elites have constructed for us.

So, here is the reality — when a movement like the social justice cult reverts to zealotry, there is nothing that can be done to persuade them otherwise.  Some will leave the movement behind, but the majority will refuse to acknowledge that their ideology has failed to sway the masses, and that this might be due to the fact that their ideology is highly flawed. They will seek instead to FORCE us into compliance. This ensures that a violent conflict will eventually arise.

castro-execution-iBusy day yesterday, so I am catching up.

In today’s post, your humble blogger will synthesize a number themes that we have recently touched upon in recent posts. The aim here is to provide you dear reader with an accurate depiction of what is OBJECTIVE REALITY. And here again, the reason that OBJECTIVE REALITY interests us is that if you and I are better informed, we will then be in a better position when making decisions that effect our corporal and spiritual interests.

The initial theme with which your humble bloggers begins today’s post is the FAKE NEWS theme. Please consider this post a continuation of the thread that we started in the Battle Of “Fake News” – The Neo-Modernists Have Already Lost… (see here).

In today’s post, we will re-publish a FAKE APOLOGIA provided in Francis’ defense of not responding to the Dubia, from an old FrancisCardinal. On the blog The Bones You Crushed blog, this FAKE APOLOGIA appeared, with corresponding comments. The FAKE APOLOGIA is given by the notorious Cláudio Hummes OFM. The blog author’s commentary is in the brackets. 

Our guest author explains very succinctly his take on why this APOLOGIA is FAKE.

‘The pope could be wounded [were he not a living Saint] by the motives [referring hearers not to the questions but to the motives themselves, which he hereby casts as suspect’] which led these four persons to go so far [they are extreme/extremists] as to want to [they are not doing this out of duty but out of disobedient self-will] correct him [how dare they!!!?]. But, he is very calm, relaxed, and moves forward [our leader is strong and fearless in the face of this outrage]. He knows which is the right path [he is so wise he is beyond questioning by a competent authority] that one has to [he and we are obliged to] follow. And the College of Cardinals is with him, without any larger problems [he has overwhelming, total support among the Cardinals]. The whole College of Cardinals is with him [he has overwhelming, total support among the Cardinals. It is necessary to repeat this because that’s the message he wants to get through, even though he can provide no evidence for this].’

To drill down into the FAKENESS of this APOLOGIA, the EVIDENCE comes in the last comment, namely: “It is necessary to repeat this (“total support among the Cardinals”) because that’s the message he wants to get through, even though he can provide no evidence for this].’

So if the FAKE APOLOGIA does not have MATERIAL EVIDENCE supporting its PROPOSITION (A statement or assertion that expresses a judgement or opinion.), the question then becomes: on what basis is it SUPPORTED?

And here we can easily identify a whole host of LOGICAL FALLACIES that jump out at the reader in every sentence. So let’s see how many LOGICAL FALLACIES we can find in this APOLOGIA.

First of all, in the very first sentence, the FrancisCardinal refers to “motives”. In classical LOGIC, an APPEAL TO MOTIVE is a special case of the AD HOMINEM CIRCUMSTANTIAL (INFORMAL) FALLACY. A common feature of this FALLACY is “that only the possibility of a motive (however small) is shown, without showing the motive actually existed or, if the motive did exist, that the motive played a role in forming the argument and its conclusion. Indeed, it is often assumed that the mere possibility of motive is evidence enough”.

Yep!

Next, the APPEAL TO MOTIVE FALLACY can be subdivided into various FORMAL FALLACIES, depending on how the perpetrator of this FALLACY structures his argument. In our case, the following FORMAL LOGICAL FALLACIES contained in the APOLOGIA are as follows:

1) APPEAL TO AUTHORITY, – “He knows which is the right path…”

2) APPEAL TO PITY, – “The pope could be wounded…”

3) APPEAL TO POPULARITY – “The whole College of Cardinals is with him…”

4) APPEAL TO PREJUDICIAL LANGUAGE. – “…by the motives which led these four persons to go so far as to want to correct him.”

Please go to this link HERE and see how many other LOGICAL FALLACIES you can identify in this 62 word statement.

And to sum up the above, it is the FALLACIOUS LOGIC of this APOLOGIA that makes it FAKE (anything made to appear otherwise than it actually is; counterfeit).

And one OBSERVATION here, Catholics, let alone Catholic prelates do not argue like this.

The next theme we have written about, and that is blatantly obvious here is the SIGNALLING EFFECT. We have explained this PRINCIPLE of the et Invisibilium in our post titled Francis And The Signaling Effect (see here). In that post, we explained that when providing information, in that information are contained SIGNALS that the astute recipient will be able to pick up.

In the above FAKE APOLOGIA, the notorious FrancisCardinal repeated the theme, (which the blog author noticed), that “the College of Cardinals are with Francis”. Obviously, the SIGNALLING EFFECT when taken with the numerous LOGICAL FALLACIES that underlie the FAKE APOLOGIA, would suggest just the opposite.

To be more precise, the statement “The whole College of Cardinals is with him” is an OBJECTIVELY FALSE statement.

Second OBSERVATION: The last thing that Francis is, is very calm, relaxed. If he was, he would not have chickened out of the consistory meeting with the Cardinals. (see here)

Next, this passage bears a striking similarity to other APOLOGIAS, given in a different time, and “defending” another absolute dictator, one Joseph Stalin. If you recall, “the whole of the Soviet people were with him” too. And “the whole of the Cuban people were with him”, i.e. Castro, too!

The commentary of the blog author very nicely captures this LOGICAL FALLACY, namely APPEAL TO MOTIVES in PLACE of SUPPORT, made in the FrancisCardinal’s APOLOGIA.

On a more general note, this APOLOGETICS style is very reminiscent of the MODUS OPERANDI under which “thought crimes”, that were attributed to “suspects” in the former Soviet Union and its satellite states, were prosecuted. (see here)

One can easily go as far as to say that this APOLOGIA of the FrancisCardinal and other FrancisCardinals* and other proxies speaking on behalf of Francis, are an EXTENSION of the TRUE NATURE of the FrancisBishop of Rome’s thoughts and intentions.

And while we are on this subject, with the passing of the notorious mass murderer, who turned his country into an island penal colony, Fidel Castro, a few days ago, it would appear to be more than just coincidence that the two “revolutionaries”, albeit in different areas of the Visibilium Omnium, got along so well when they finally met. Please keep in mind that it was Francis who asked to meet El Loco “Comandante”. And it is also more than just coincidence that Francis issued the staement that he did after the death of this brutal tyrant. These incidents are really quite telling and explains to a large degree the TRUE nature of the affinity, if not outright “chemistry”  between these two kindred spirits. (see here)

Don’t believe me?

Well, take a look:

francis-castro

Kind of like a schoolgirl meeting Justin Bieber, was my first thought when I saw this photo. But I digress…

Concluding, what is of significant importance is to understand the dynamic of Francis’s actions and the actions of his proxies. What we have been observing over the last three years is a pontificate that coddles up to, if not outright attempts to legitimize brutal leftist regimes that are responsible for the deaths and suffering of millions of not only Faithful Catholics but of people who just so happen to be unlucky enough to get caught up in the madness of these tyrants.

Of further significant importance is to understand that the MODUS OPERANDI of dealing with dissenting voices opposing these tyrants is very similar. The MODUS OPERANDI consists of  DENUNCIATIONS based on LOGICAL FALLACIES, and specifically, LOGICAL FALLACIES that APPEAL TO EMOTIONS.

Or as we Catholics say, the PASSIONS. 

What is absent from these DENUNCIATIONS is any attempt at making ARGUMENTS supported by LOGIC or RATIONAL THOUGHT. Not to mention OBJECTIVE MATERIAL EVIDENCE. And the most likely reason for this is that there are no LOGICAL or RATIONAL precepts upon which these TRANSRATIONAL TYRANTS can find support for their harebrained ideas. And the causal results between these TYRANT’S harebrained ideas and the EPIC FAILURERS that they are leaving in their wake, is there for all to see.

Which brings me to an interesting OBSERVATION that I have had, and was recently confirmed by none other than Roberto de Mattei. In an Op-Ed, de Mattei CORRECTLY observed that what Francis is really after (TRUE AGENDA), is to become the new LEADER OF THE INTERNATIONAL LEFT. (see here)

For his part, after Clinton’s defeat, Francesco now remains the only point of reference for the international left, [now] lacking a leader. On November 5th at the conclusion of the Third World Meeting of the so-called “Popular Movements” in the Vatican, in the presence of revolutionary agitators from the five continents, Pope Francis turned to them saying: “I make your cry mine”. But the cry of protest, that is raised by the movements gathered in Paul VI’s audience hall, is, unfortunately, characterized by ideological fanaticism and incitement to violence.

So the lingering suspicion, if not CONSPIRACY THEORY that is quickly becoming CONSPIRACY FACT is  the following:

It just might be the case that the reason Francis was so “friendly” with Castro, and specifically, the reason that he asked for an audience, with photographers present, was to DEMONSTRATE (DECLARE) to the INTERNATIONAL LEFT that while he might be the successor of St. Peter and the Church founded by the Son of God, yet in reality, what interests Francis is to become the SUCCESSOR to El Loco Comandante.

Or to put it another way, Francis wanted to see Castro in order TO BE MADE!

And with the passing of CASTRO, what we are seeing is the final passing of the REVOLUTIONARY TORCH to the last South American revolutionary of that generation.

And by all accounts, Francis appears to be a ” worthy” SUCCESSOR OF FIDEL CASTRO!

That is, until the tide of human history consigns both of these LUNATICS to the trash-heap of history.

The Church’s Eldest Daughter In The Wile E. Coyote Pontificate… (Updated)

wile-e-coyote

HINT: Francis is NOT the TRAIN!

Today I will jump across to the ECCLESIASTICAL sub-set of the Visibilium Omnium. The reason that I am “going there” is that I track the “information flow” that is emanating from the seminaries and Modernist Rome’s responses. From where I sit, this situation is very analogous to that of one Wile E. Coyote (in this case Francis and his hippie sect) and the TRAIN (SSPX/Summorum Pontificum  and the trend in the Universal Church). And as you may have noticed, I see this relationship analogous to Wile E. Coyote meets TRAIN. ‘

Just to demonstrate that the above is a CORRECT and TRUE representation of OBJECTIVE REALITY, we start at the Rorate Caeli blog. In a post titled  For the record – In latest interview, Pope attacks “rigidity” in seminaries and in priestly formation. Are seminaries soon to be targeted for “reform” by Francis?, we find out that Francis is escalating his WAR ON CATHOLIC SEMINARIES.

Regular readers of this blog will recall that this “low intensity war” has been waged by Francis from the earliest days of his pontificate. Here is a short recap of the escalation of this war:

  1. It started with Francis suppressing the leader ship of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate and closing their Italian seminary.
  2. Next came the degradation of Bishop Oliveri and the destruction of his seminary.
  3. Then came the suppression of Bishop Livieres (Requiescat in pace) and his 250 man strong seminary in Ciudad del Este in Paraguay.
  4. Next, Francis called a first of its kind meeting of Vocations Directors in Rome and instructing the vocations directors not to “go Catholic”.

Here are some helpful links to posts that I have published over the last two years: HERE, AND HERE AND HERE AND HERE. For more info on this subject, please type “priesthood” into the search function on the Deus Ex Machina site and enjoy!

Of noted interest, I recommend my readers to go to this link HERE, which provides a good idea of how Francis sees the Sacred Priesthood. Hint: Francis sees the Sacred Priesthood as being neither Sacred nor a Priesthood as Our Lord instituted it.

But back to the subject at hand. The Rorate Caeli post, when read in CONTEXT of the information in the post itself and that which I have linked above, gives the reader the STRONG impression that Francis is fighting what is called a “rear guard” action. A “rear-guard” action is defined as follows: (emphasis added) (see here)

Definition of rearguard action

1: a defensive or delaying fight engaged in by a rear guard (as in covering the retreat of an army or the evacuation of a besieged garrison)

2:  an effort put forth by means of preventive or delaying measures or tactics and usually against great odds in defense of a threatened existing order or situation or in opposition to a proposed new departurerearguard action, if you will, on inflationary trends — D. V. Brown>rearguard actions designed to prevent particular regulatory measures — H. R. Bowen>

So what PROOF do we have that SUPPORTS the above OBSERVATION?

First we go over to the Pertinacious Papist blog and find out the following information:

One of the most significant events in the history of the Traditional Latin Mass after Vatican II took place on Monday, November 14. As reported in the November 6 edition of this column, the first Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form at New York’s St. Patrick Cathedral to held in 20 years took place that evening. Despite only two weeks’ advance notice for the event and a very limited amount of advance publicity, approximately 1,000 faithful were in attendance. The recently renovated and restored building was ideally suited for the Traditional Mass. Fr. Leonard Villa was the celebrant, a large professional-grade choir assembled for the event sang Orlando di Lassus’ Missa Bell’ Amfitrit’ altera, and many familiar faces from Manhattan’s Holy Innocents Parish served the Mass.

What we have provided for us above is a confirmation that the Proper Catholic Mass is advancing into the Cathedrals. This is a major event in that as go the Cathedrals, so go the ORDINARIES that occupy those CATHEDRALS. And as go those ORDINARIES, so goes the UNIVERSAL CHURCH.

Not to mention the contributions made pursuant to Canon 1271 of the Code of Canon Law. (see here)

Just to give you dear reader an indication of the behind the scenes manipulations trying to stop the Proper Catholic Mass from gaining a foothold in the cathedrals, here are links about a recent situation at the Los Angeles Cathedral here and here. There is more to this story and I will update it when I find the link.

But back to the matter at hand. Going back overseas, we see a very UNIQUE situation taking place in one specific country. If you recall, yesterday your most humble blogger posted information from the POLITICAL sub-set of the Visibulium Omnium. In that post, we learned that the upcoming Presidential Election in France will be playing itself out between two candidates who are “not ashamed of being on the right, and even less of being Catholic.” 

The reason why this is significant is that in France, we are observing a PHENOMENON of EPIC proportions. What in fact we are seeing is the “EXPONENTIAL EXPLOSION” of the RESTORATION that is making inroads into the general population. Especially among the young.

PROOF of just this PHENOMENON can be “discerned” from the advance that just the SSPX has made in establishing “Mass centers” in France proper. Below is a screen grab of ONLY SSPX “mass locations” in Francis:

sspx-france

If you focus on the upper left hand corner, what you will see is that the SSPX has a total of 235 “mass locations” in France at present. And since CONTEXT is everything, here is a table of how the SSPX numbers look with respect to some other large Western Churches:

sspx-mass-centers-i

And here is how the SSPX numbers for France look with respect to the UNIVERSAL CHURCH:

sspx-mass-centers

Concluding, as we see, “something” is happening in France. This “something” has broken out of the phase where it could be considered a “statistical error”. It is very quickly breaking out of the phase where it entails “a remnant”.

The TANGIBLE EVIDENCE for this “something” can been easily identified in the above tables. Further SUPPORTING EVIDENCE comes via other sources. Some of just the most recent of these “somethings” that we chronicled on this blog, come from 2015 and 2016 and can be found here and here and here.

But back to the Rorate Caeli post. When reading it, one is struck by the divergence between the EXPLODING numbers of vocations in the Catholic seminaries as opposed to the steady decline in those that are operated by Modernists. Here is the Rorate Caeli rundown:

The current pontificate has coincided with a worldwide decline in major seminary enrollments. After many years of small but steady annual increases in the number of major seminarians during the reigns of John Paul II and Benedict XVI, the numbers slightly dipped in 2012 then went down more steeply in 2013 and 2014. To be more precise: at the end of 2011 there were 120,616 major seminarians. This went down to 120,051 by end of 2012, 118,251 by end of 2013, and 116,319 by end of 2014 (the latest for which statistics are available). If the experience of the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires is any indication, and if Francis manages to impose something of his vision on the actual process of priestly formation all over the world, we are convinced that we will see a collapse in vocations far greater than that which has already transpired in the first years of his pontificate.

So what INFERENCES can be drawn from the above?

One of the easy ones is that in the steadily declining population of seminarians, the Catholic seminarians (whose numbers are exploding) are becoming a larger and larger proportion of the aggregate.

We need to go no further than this obvious OBSERVATION to understand Francis’ war on Catholic vocations, which is in essence a war against the priesthood as Our Lord founded it.

Ending this post, I would just like to refresh your memory and take you back to a post titled Raging, Raging Against The Coming Of The Light (see here). We concluded that post with the following summation:

Furthermore, is it any wonder that the Catholic Church, who is managed by people such as Francis and Card. Braz de Aviz is going the way of the “c”atholic dying religious orders such as the Society of Jesus? And is it any wonder that theecclesiastical structures that fall into their grip eventually die away – a process now visible all over the world”.

Summing up the above, Mr Randall Smith, the author of the post titled A Modest Proposal for Dying Religious Communities, makes a brilliant observation, namely:

In Melville’s Moby Dick, Ahab (Francis et al.), caught up in the ropes of the harpoon he himself has thrown, cries out as he is dying to the silent implacable foe he has spent his life obsessively trying to exterminate from the earth: “to the last I grapple with thee; from hell’s heart I stab at thee; for hate’s sake I spit my last breath at thee.” Dylan Thomas begged his dying father to “Rage, rage, against the dying of the light.” These orders are determined to rage, rage, against the coming of the light.

Yes, what we are observing is Francis, his Revolutionary soviet and all the post-conciliar dying religious orders and structures raging, raging against the coming of the light.

But at least in Anno Domini 2016, ALL the respective parties, whether they are in a state of denial or not, at least see “the light”.

So by the looks of things, Francis is still RAGING!

And we need to go no further than a Roadrunner, Wile E. Coyote cartoon to know how this story will end!

UPDATE 04:30 29 November, 2016 A.D.

Just received this report from Toronto from David Domet of the Vox Cantoris blog. Enjoy…

In the Archdiocese of Toronto, there are four diocesan traditional Masses every Sunday not including the SSPX, which has two “Mass centres” with the one in Toronto having recently added a third Sunday Mass. Every First Class Feast now is covered, often in two with Sung or Solemn and two years ago, there were SIX on Immaculate Conception. On the Feast of Christ the King, the Cardinal presided from the Throne in a Solemn Mass at St. Michael’s Cathedral the first time there since the council. It was the second time for him, having presided in 2014 at the 75th anniversary of Toronto priest at another parish. Every Seminarian is interested in the traditional Mass and of those ordained in the last few years, half can Offer the Holy Sacrifice.

Francis cannot stop this.

No he cannot.

And since you dear reader have gotten this far, here is a comment that I received over the weekend from a FB friend who happens to be a priest. I am keeping his identity and religious order undisclosed, but I think this type of situation will be/is very widespread in jurisdictions that are unfriendly to the Proper Mass:

I was so fortunate that, when I entered my Province of *******, there were a goodly number of priests still offering the Traditional Mass. And they taught me. Quietly. Surreptitiously. In regular, quietly whispered morning Masses. And they over saw, Quietly, Surreptitiously, In regular, quiet whispers, my theological formation. So, when I was ordained — even though some were shocked — I offered my first Mass according to the Traditional Rite. (This was well before Summorum Pontificum). ANd I know many other priests with similar experiences. In fact, through the years I have taught several priests the Traditional Mass, Sacraments and Breviary — and still do. Remember that the Traditional Roman Mass is THE MASS WHICH WILL NOT DIE!!!!! (Deo Gratias!)

Yes it will not, because is comes directly from GOD!

Normalization Process™ – France Cracks…

french-vote

BREAKING

NORMALIZATION PROCESS™ has just broken through in France. Today the French Right has had their primary and the winner of the vote, by a YUUUUUGE margin was Monsieur Francois Fillon.

For those not familiar with Fillon, here are some key aspect of his campaign before today’s results were known: (see here) (emphasis and added emphasis added)

On social policy, the 62-year-old Fillon, for instance, opposes same-sex partners adopting children. Such a conservative agenda has allowed him to secure votes among anti-gay marriage groups. He also advocates making it harder for children born to foreign surrogate mothers to obtain French citizenship. Juppe, while on the campaign trail, stated that he does not plan to amend the 2013 gay marriage law to prohibit adoptions or change France’s adoption rules.

And then there is this:

Today’s vote is expected to see a substantial turnout with Reuters reporting that according to organizers from the center-right party by midday the participation rate was 10 to 15% higher than in last week’s first round.

Public reactions to the two candidates are, as in other recent political votes, polarizing.

“He’s not ashamed of being on the right, and even less of being Catholic,” Fillon backer Valerie Sonnard, a childminder in her forties, told Reuters at a polling station in Toulouse, southern France on Sunday.

“My choice is Francois Fillon because I don’t want a right that is tainted by the left,” said Harold Bakinsian, a 51 year-old architect voting in Frejus on the Mediterranean coast.

As the two candidates voted, Fillon told reporters: “It is the voters who are talking now, not the candidate.”

Juppe meanwhile said he was proud of his campaign, but also complained over the way he had been cast on social media as soft on Islamist militancy – a sensitive subject in France, where more than 230 people have died in Islamist militant attacks since January last year. “Some truths came out too late,” he said.

Since any registered voter can take part in the primary, the outcome of the vote is especially hard to predict.

Well, now the outcome of the vote is in. Fillon wiped out Juppe by a 70% to 30% margin.

Below I am reposting the results post from our catholic Zero Hedge website.

The significance of this vote is that the most likely final round of the French Presidential Election next year will be Marie Le Pen and Francois Fillon. Both candidates can be described as social conservatives and RATIONAL NATIONALISTS whose social agenda is practically identical. It will be on the economic agenda where they differ.

Actually, Marie Le Pen has been trying to soften here position with respect to the “intrinsically disordered” of late. However after this vote, it appears as if she can return to a more “anatomically correct” position. Aside, here niece Marion Jeanne Caroline Maréchal-Le Pen is a favorite of this blog since she does not hide the fact that she is… well… a Catholic. (see here)

On a higher level, what we see is another country where the TRANSRATIONAL “leftist position” parties have been wiped out. This comes on the back of a Labor (UK) wipe out in 2015, SLD (Poland) not getting into the last parliament, Democratic Party (US) marginalized to a few large urban areas.

And now, we see that in French, a sitting leftist president, with a popularity in the neighborhood of 10%,  can’t make up his mind whether to run. And if he does, he will be clobbered in the first round.

And this above is transpiring in an environment where the Italians have a referendum in one weeks time where their leftist party will most likely lose. And on the same day, an euro-sceptic, right wing  president will most likely be elected in Austria.

Folks, this is YUUUUUUGE.

And now, the Zero Hedge post with the good news (see here)

French Primary Results Are In: Conservative Fillon Trounces Moderate Juppe With 69% Of Vote

As previewed earlier today, in the biggest political event on Sunday, the runoff round in the French Republican primary, moments ago the first results have started trickling in, and it is shaping up as a monumental victory for Francois Fillon, who served as French prime minister from 2007-2012, and who according to the provisional count has 69.5% of the primary vote, in a move that may once again prove beneficial for Marine Le Pen as the more moderate, and former favorite, Alain Juppe is now almost certainly eliminated.

  • FILLON HAS ABOUT 69.5% OF PRIMARY VOTE, PROVISIONAL COUNT SHOWS
  • JUPPE HAS ABOUT 30.5% OF VOTE, PROVISIONAL COUNT SHOWS

The vote’s outcome means that it will be up to Fillon to prevent the collapse of the French establishment, as it will be up to him to prevent Le Pen from winning in next May’s presidential election. It remains to be seen how successful he is in unifying the anti-protest vote.

As a reminder, the 62-year-old racing car enthusiast who lives in a Loire valley chateau, Fillon promises radical reforms to France‘s regulation-encumbered economy, vowing to roll back the state and slash government’s bloated costs.

Some policy highlights:

  • On foreign policy: Fillon has a positive outlook on Paris’ relations with Moscow. Unlike Juppe, who sees Russia as more of a threat to be contained, the 62-year-old has called Moscow a “crucial partner” for Europe and has supported calls for the lifting of sanctions against Russia.
  • Fillon is the author of a book called, “Beating Islamic Totalitarianism,” and advocates a hard line against Islamist terrorism at home. He wants to bar French jihadists from returning to France after fighting in Syria or Iraq by stripping them of their citizenship. Juppe has a somewhat softer approach to terrorism and supports the arrest of jihadists returning from Iraq or Syria. He has also made calls to place suspected Islamist radicals who pose a threat under house arrest
  • On the economic front, Fillon advocates tough free-market positions. His economic proposals include cutting 500,000 to 600,000 civil servant jobs and cutting public spending by €110 billion ($117bn). He also wants to raise the retirement age from the current 62 years to 65 years and VAT rates by 3.5 percent. The Republican also advocates for ending the 35-hour work week, allowing unions to negotiate up to 48-hour working weeks.
  • On social policy, Fillon, for instance, opposes same-sex partners adopting children. Such a conservative agenda has allowed him to secure votes among anti-gay marriage groups. He also advocates making it harder for children born to foreign surrogate mothers to obtain French citizenship.

In a curious twist, as explained earlier, the now virtually assured win for Fillon could give the highly unpopular current president Francois Hollande a potential “in” to attempt another run at the presidency himself, giving him a target to attack and could convince him to make a bid for a second five-year mandate against the odds. His Prime Minister, Manuel Valls, is also gearing up to stand. The Socialist primaries are due to take place in January.

Prayer Request For John Vennari

preti-agony-in-the-gardenI read this on Mundabor’s blog (see here) and am re-posting.

Please pray for this Catholic stalwart and paladin.

O Most Holy Virgin Mary, Queen of the most holy Rosary, you were pleased to appear to the children of Fatima and reveal a glorious message. We implore you, inspire in our hearts a fervent love for the recitation of the Rosary. By meditating on the mysteries of the redemption that are recalled therein may we obtain the graces and virtues that we ask, through the merits of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Redeemer.

John Vennari Scheduled for Surgery Saturday Morning
Requesting Prayers

This is a note to tell my friends that I have to go into surgery on Saturday morning, November 26.

Cancer is a nasty beast, and it has caused an obstruction in the GI that must be addressed immediately. Immediately.

As noted already, my case has been serious from the start, and this latest problem came to a head at the same time I returned from three weeks of cancer treatment in Mexico.

I am presently not able to update my CFN webpage (I write this note from the hospital). I was blessed to receive the Sacrament of Extreme Unction this afternoon.

Please feel free to forward and/or post this, along with the link below that provides background and info for those who wish to share prayerful and financial support. http://www.oltyn.org/vennari.htm

Thank you for all your prayers and support up until now. Please pray and ask others to pray, especially communities of religious and convents of nuns.

Am I am a little afraid of surgery? Who wouldn’t be? But I place my trust in Our and Our Lady, and take heart from all the kindness and concern I’ve received. Your outpouring of love has been astounding.

I may not be able to update for a few days.

Thank you.

John Vennari
Editor, CFN

The Genius Of Marcel Lefebvre…

arch-lefebvreToday we take a break from our FAKE NEWS thread and open up another thread, this time pertaining to what comes after the 4 Cardinals publish their formal ‘correction’ of the FrancisBishop of Rome. I would like to get this post on record before the 4 Cardinal’s publication, so that I can seamlessly transition into what I think the ramifications of this “correction will be”.

I do not want to go into this at present, and will inform my readers as to the reasons why when the time is right.

So back to the subject at hand.

We pick up the story where we left off with our post Desperately Seeking ReconciliationIn that post, we OBSERVED that Francis is desperate to recognize the Society of St. Pius X and provided some thoughts on why this might be the case. We left off with the following OBSERVATION:

Therefore, what is becoming quite clear for all observers of this situation is:

  • the SSPX will not budge.
  • Francis desperately needs a reconciliation.
  • The reason Francis desperately needs reconciliation is in order to gain some sort of control over the SSPX and ring-fence the NORMALIZATION PROCESS™ inside the Ecclesia Dei Commission. Hence Diocesan bishops must consult with the Vatican before establishing a diocesan religious order, Pope Francis ruled.
  • Francis needs to gain control over the SSPX so as to block off any escape route for the Catholics stuck in NUChurch. Hence clampdown on contemplative orders.
  • Francis is planning a repression of the larger Western Church and understands that it will not go as easily as with the suppression of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate. Hence Come una madre amorevole in case of rebellion.
  • But most importantly, Francis needs to do something IMMEDIATELY since the Restoration is speading in the Catholic Church, especially in the wealthy Western countries.
  • The neo-modernist’s who support Francis are freaking out since they see that with their demise, so will end their Novus Ordo NUChurch.
  • This will end their IDEOLOGICAL life’s work and consign them to not only the trash-heap of history, but will earn them the hatred of future generations of the Faithful.

Therefore they are leaning on the hapless Francis.

And Francis has backed himself into a corner and has only one option left, and that is the “UNILATERAL RECOGNITION” of the SSPX. (emphasis added)

We see the haplessness of Francis’ position in the FrancisStatement pertaining to the status of the SSPX that was supposed to be contained in the Apostolic Letter Misericordia et Misera (ALMetM) which merely extended SSPX confessions’ provision.

Now, anyone following my sight could have suspected that Francis was not going to pull the UNILATERAL RECOGNITION trigger at this time. The reason being that their was nothing to gain by recognizing the SSPX at this time, yet if he did, Francis would have lost whatever leverage he has… or rather he thinks he has over the Society.

Please keep in mind, Francis is all about CONTROL!

Yet, the fact that Francis even mentioned the SSPX in the ALMetM has a significant SIGNALLING EFFECT. (see here) What is the most important signal to take away from this episode is that the SSPX is foremost on Francis’ mind. He can’t seem to let them go, nor can he get himself to ignore them. In other words, they are living in Francis’ mind, rent free. Which means that Francis is demonstrating (SIGNALLING) the intensity of his DESPERATION to obtain any sort of control over the SSPX. And he is letting us all know this through the SIGNALLING EFFECT of content of the ALMetM.

Far fetched, you may ask dear reader?

Well, not really.

Here is a HYPOTHESIS that in turn has been living in my mind, rent free since Francis admitted that the SSPX can hear confessions validly.

The key to understanding the mortal danger that the SSPX pose to the post conciliar church in general and to the supercharged FRANCISCHURCH in particular is that the SSPX have figured out the doctrinally proper avenue with respect to resisting a pope.

What makes the SSPX unique is that they were never excommunicated properly, and the act of excommunication which “they entered into” by consecrating the 4 bishops in 1988 is not valid. I don’t want to go into the entire justification here, so please go to the following link and read all about the background and justification of why the SSPX acted the way in which they acted. (see Here) For our purposes here, what is important is that the SSPX …

H.A.S.  N.E.V.E.R.  S.E.P.A.R.A.T.E.D.  F.R.O.M.  T.H.E. C.A.T.H.O.L.I.C.  C.H.U.R.C.H.

What the SSPX does is resist St. Peter, as did St. Paul. Yet they maintain their loyalty to the Roman Pontiff, praying for him in every Holy Sacrifice of the Mass which they offer. Furthermore, they are not only gracious in their contacts with the Holy See and the local Ordinaries, but they also have never broken off contact with the Roman Church. Actually, they are in constant contact with the Roman Church and have been since their founding. (see Here)

Now contrasting this with real schismatic movements, such as the orthodox, and the various sects of the protestants. Those individuals in these mentioned groups, when entering into a schism, broke off all contacts. One way which this situation can be read is that it was the orthodox and protestants that burned their bridges. By burning ones bridges, these sects not only cut off all dialogue, but likewise cut off all ties that they had with Rome, i.e. ending any form in which they could exer pressure upon the Roman authorities in order to influence the Roman authorities behavior.

Here is how Dr. Joseph Shaw explains this situation:

The Greeks told us back in 1054 that the Pope was in error for adding the filioque to the Creed. In 1870 the ‘Old Catholics’ thought that the Pope and the First Vatican Council was in error over the definition of Papal Infallibility. In both cases, they, like many, many, groups in between, went into schism, which is to say that they stopped accepting the authority or communion of bishops and others who sided with the Pope.

While the SSPX, as opposed to the above identified groups, have never stopped accepting the authority or communion of bishops and others who sided with the Pope.

To be more precise, one must add the qualification: when that authority and communion were in accordance with the Universal Magistarium and Sacred Tradition.

And this is the key to understanding Francis’ actions in regards to the SSPX.

Therefore, it is THIS relationship dynamic which in FACT is what Francis is trying to control.

And why is this relationship dynamic a mortal threat to Francis and his co-conspirators?

Well, it’s because the Catholics who still possess an modicum of supernatural FAITH can resist this FrancisBishop of Rome in the same manner, and under the same justification that the SSPX have been resisting numerous Roman Pontiffs since 1975.

In other words, the SSPX has created a PROPER and LEGITAMATE MECHANISM, FIRMLY BASED IN NATURAL MORAL AND DIVINE LAW, for RESISTING any and all UNJUST ACTIONS of a ROMAN PONTIFF.

And it is the unbroken UNIVERSAL MAGISTERIUM and HOLY TRADITION that is the STANDARD against which the actions of any Roman Pontiff are JUDGED.

Given the above state of play (OBJECTIVE REALITY), how can will the 4 Cardinal’s “correction” CRISIS play itself out within the Holy Roman Catholic Church?

Here is one likely scenario:

In a post written by Dr. Joseph Shaw of the Latin Mass Society, we can read the following passage: (see Here)

As Cardinal Burke noted, a formal correction of the Pope might come from just a single cardinal – or, we might add, of non-cardinals.

And what is the significance of a formal correction? Here is this part:

The point is that it is part of process, in some hypothetical situation, in which it becomes clear to at least some people that the teaching of the Church is one thing, and the published opinion of the Pope (or what can be drawn from his publications and his silence with moral certainty), another.

What this means is that the OBJECTIVE REALITY of the situation will become clear in the minds of Faithful prelates. The OBJECTIVE REALITY is that the Roman Pontiff has taken a position that contradicts Divine Law.

And to follow the logical sequence, Dr. Shaw defines the end goal of the 4 Cardinal’s ‘correction’:

If that becomes clear, then it has implications, at least for the people to whom it becomes clear.

It is at this point where the SSPX’s PROPER WAY FORWARD comes into play.

If we are dealing with Catholic prelates who still hold the Catholic Faith, and one must assume that a number of them do, then it will become MANDATORY that these Catholic prelates (and not only prelates) take action.

The question is though, what can they, and what should they, and what must they do?

For the answer to this question, we go over to the post titled The Satanic Council. (see Here) In that post, your humble blogger has transcribed part of a conference address that Bishop Fellay, the Superior General of the SSPX gave to a number of the FAITHFUL. In this address, we can hear (read) the following:

It’s a catastrophe for the Church, (situation with the Joy of Sex and Francis’s actions) but it’s good, it’s good that finally there is a reaction.

I reference that which Dr. Shaw wrote about the implications for “the people to whom it becomes clear”. This is them.

Next:

It’s high time. And this reaction is growing.

Confirmation that there is resistance to the Roman Pontiff.

And now you have to reflect.

How can someone oppose the pope?

So what we see being described here is what we have termed as the PROPER and LEGITAMATE MECHANISM, FIRMLY BASED IN NATURAL MORAL AND DIVINE LAW, for RESISTING any and all UNJUST ACTIONS of a ROMAN PONTIFF.

Bishop Fellay goes on to explain:

We know, we have given the explanation. It’s not now. It’s (been for) years that we explained why we have the right to do so. (Resist an unjust action of a Roman Pontiff)

As for the situation of the Catholic, non-SSPX prelates, here is that passage:

But these bishops and cardinals, what there doing now, (they) must also reflect and have the right answer, how in… in which name do they have the right to oppose the pope.

The Holy Father.

The one who’s under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost.

And here is where Bishop Fellay explains how it is that these prelates in the post-conciliar church got ensnared in their own logical inconsistencies:

These are all  the arguments that they gave to us, to say you must obey.

So under which name now they say: disobey.

And here is the PROPER ANSWER:

Well, there is only one answer. It’s because the Church in the past has already spoken about these things. And (She has) given the answer. And that’s what we call Tradition.

Concluding, what we see above is that Francis is trapped. He has tried to change Catholic doctrine through the back door. He has used threats, intimidation and punishment to force those prelates who still possess a modicum of supernatural FAITH into relenting and accepting his FALSE IDEOLOGY disguised as MERCY. 

Yet he has not been able to push his changes through by force. What he has found is an opponent who is willing to resist. And this makes Francis “boil with rage”.

Yet the news in the Catholic post-conciliar church is not good either. These FAITHFUL prelates have been in a position where they just can’t ignore treachery introduced by certain elements within the post conciliar church. They understand that it is their salvation that is at stake, yet they have found themselves in a battle against forces who most likely don’t believe in either a Catholic God, or any other god, aside from their own alter-egos.

And by their fruits one can make this SUPPOSTION. 

And Francis knows this also. Which is what lays behind his efforts to pacify the SSPX.

So now these Catholic prelates that have found themselves in this dire position, are looking for justification for doing what they must do. They now realize that the only justification that they have at their disposal is grounded in HOLY TRADITION. (see here)

And they must be thanking the Almighty God that they have the GENIUS of Archbishop Lefebvre to show them the way.

Or at least they soon will be…

I will end here, but will continue this thread as EVENTS proceed…

Battle Of “Fake News” – The Neo-Modernists Have Already Lost…

fake-news

Today’s post brings GREAT NEWS.

Over the last two – three weeks, you dear readers have been OBSERVING historical… dare I say EPIC EVENTS transpiring right before your very eyes.

BTW…

D.O.  Y.O.U.  R.E.M.E.M.B.E.R.  W.H.E.R.E.  Y.O.U.  W.E.R.E. W.H.E.N.  Y.O.U.  F.O.U.N.D. O.U.T.  T.H.A.T.  D.O.N.A.L.D. T.R.U.M.P.  W.O.N. T.H.E.  2.0.1.6. P.R.E.S.I.D.E.N.T.I.A.L. E.L.E.C.T.I.O.N. !!!!!  

But I digress…

Because of the “FAKENESS” of the overwhelming number of “news” reports emanating from what is commonly known as the LEGACY MEDIA, that same LEGACY MEDIA and their co-conspirators in the ESTABLISHMENT have decided to create a NARRATIVE that it is in fact the information flow coming from the alternative information sites that is the “FAKE NEWS”.

To provide “street cred” for this NARRATIVE, the social media platforms, namely Face Book, Twitter, Reddit, et. al. have decided to start censoring their information content. Naturally, this censorship, which used to be the bane of the “LEFT POSITION” folks, appears to be the most optimal way going forward for these LEGACY MEDIA Stalinists “democrats”.

Given this to be the case, there are beginning to appear “voices” who are trying to define what in fact is FAKE NEWS.

Which is the GREAT NEWS that I mentioned at the beginning of this post.

The reason that it is GREAT NEWS is that any discussion of what constitutes “FAKE” (counterfeit, sham), is at the end of the day a philosophical exercise. Provided one assumes OBJECTIVE MEANING OF WORDS AND THEIR COMMON USAGE, that is. 

And one must!

And here’s why.

Going further, when trying to pin down what is FAKE NEWS, one MUST conform to the OBJECTIVE MEANING OF WORDS AND THEIR COMMON USAGE. The reason being that if one doesn’t apply an OBJECTIVE MEANING OF WORDS, then one finds himself in the same situation as the Structuralists found themselves in, during the first couple of decades of the 20th Century. And just as a reminder of what that situation looked like, here is that passage from our post titled Deconstructing Francis:

The bad news however, was that this movement itself soon faded into obscurity due to a small design flaw, i.e. the inherent logical fallacy of contradictory conditions. In other words, Structuralism implicitly breached the rule of non self-contradiction. The specific problem was this: in order to use Structuralism, i.e. a theory that states that words DO NOT have an objective meaning, one needs to use words that DO have a objective meaning.

So what we are going to see going forward, is not so much a debate about what constitutes “FAKE NEWS”, but rather what constitutes OBJECTIVE REALITY. In other words, if that which is “designated” as “FAKE NEWS” by the LEGACY MEDIA diverges from the OBJECTIVE MEANING OF WORDS AND THEIR COMMON USAGE, it will be noticed and commented upon by the general public, not to mention the alternative media.

Furthermore, there will be an UNSPOKEN INTEREST if not EXPLICIT MOTIVATION, for the parties that are accused of producing “FAKE NEWS” that will drive the PROCESS toward OBJECTIVITY. These people and entities will have to defend themselves. And the only manner in which they can defend themselves is through referencing OBJECTIVITY.

By referencing OBJECTIVITY in turn, they will force the neo-Modernists LEGACY MEDIA onto this “field of battle”. The reason being is this, if the LEGACY MEDIA does not rebut the rebuttals on an OBJECTIVE basis, they will compromise themselves even further. And the reason that they will compromise themselves even further, is that the average LEGACY MEDIA’S client still has a good idea of what constitutes REALITY.

Proof positive is this: He voted for Trump and got Trump elected.

So what I will do now is post the definition of OBJECTIVE for our future reference purposes. The original can be found here.

Definition of objective

1 a :  relating to or existing as an object of thought without consideration of independent existence —used chiefly in medieval philosophy b :  of, relating to, or being an object, phenomenon, or condition in the realm of sensible experience independent of individual thought and perceptible by all observers :  having reality independent of the mind <objective reality> <our reveries … are significantly and repeatedly shaped by our transactions with the objective world — Marvin Reznikoff> — compare subjective 3a c of a symptom of disease :  perceptible to persons other than the affected individual — compare subjective 4c d :  involving or deriving from sense perception or experience with actual objects, conditions, or phenomena <objective awareness> <objective data>

2 :  relating to, characteristic of, or constituting the case of words that follow prepositions or transitive verbs

3 a :  expressing or dealing with facts or conditions as perceived without distortion by personal feelings, prejudices, or interpretations <objective art> <an objective history of the war> <an objective judgment> b of a test :  limited to choices of fixed alternatives and reducing subjective factors to a minimum

Before I leave off, here is a good example of how the “BATTLE FOR WHAT CONSTITUTES FAKE NEWS” will be fought. Over at the non veni pacem blog, the author observed the same VIOLATION of the Laws of Logical Thought that your truly observed in one of the new FrancisCardinal’s* arguments here. Here is how the blog presented this “faux paus”:

+Farrell in his own words exposes why he and AL are such frauds. It is simply not possible for a thing to be both true and untrue at the same time. If the “objective moral law” really exists, as +Farrell claims here and the Catholic faith teaches, then the subjective realities of any individual situation have zero impact on the objective moral law, because… YOU CAN’T CHANGE OBJECTIVE REALITY. Reality – it’s really real. Like the physical universe.  Actually, the objective moral law is even MORE real than the physical universe. It predates the physical universe. Honestly, how hard is this? I have an undergraduate degree in Food Marketing, for crying out loud.

Another example comes by way of another new FrancisCardinal* who made the following OBSERVATION: (see here)

Asked by Ed Pentin of the National Catholic Register why Pope Francis won’t reach out to the four Cardinals who wrote the now famous dubia, newly minted Chicago Cardinal Blase Cupich stated that it’s “not for the Pope to respond to that,” adding that anyone who has “doubts and questions” about his teachings needs to “have conversion in their lives.”

But by definition, this suggested “conversion” is part of a larger process of PROSELYTIZATION. By PROZELYTIZATION, we mean the following:

Definition of proselytize

proselytized

proselytizing

intransitive verb

1 :  to induce someone to convert to one’s faith

2 :  to recruit someone to join one’s party, institution, or cause

So what we are dealing with in a process of “conversion” is in fact a PROCESS of PROSELYTIZATION. 

Now the problem comes from the FACT that the boss of the new FrancisCardinal*, the notorious FrancisBishop of Rome, is on the record for teaching that PROZELYTIZATION, i.e. CONVERSION is a GRAVE SIN. (see here)

So it would appear as if the new FrancisCardinal* is trying to talk the Catholic Cardinals into committing a FrancisSin.

So once again, we have a situation where the second of the three classic laws of thought is violated, i.e. contradictory statements cannot both be true in the same sense at the same time, e.g. the two propositions “A is B” and “A is not B” are mutually exclusive.

Quite unusual, if you ask me.

On second thought, no. It’s just the usual “spirit of VII” drivel.

Concluding, what is critical to understand in the above text is this: once the BATTLE FOR WHAT CONSTITUTES FAKE NEWS is forced to be fought on the basis of OBJECTIVE CRITEREA, the neo-Modernists, i.e. the LEGACY MEDIA in this case, will have lost.

And the only manner in which the subjects of the FAKE NEWS charges can defend themselves, is by fighting on this BATTLEFIELD OF OBJECTIVITY.

So how’s that for GREAT NEWS!

I will end here for today.

Below I will start the thread of how the BATTLE FOR WHAT CONSTITUTES FAKE NEWS will be fought.

Below is the post from the catholic Zero Hedge website which can be found here. This post is a good introduction that sets out the state of play in this subset of human activities that constitutes a part of the Visibilium Omnium.

 

Major Media Crash: They Need A Scapegoat

Submitted by Jon Rappoport via Strategic-Culture.org,

They kept telling the American people Hillary Clinton was going to win the election; and in every way they could think of, they told the American people this was a good idea.

 Then, on election night, they, the media, crashed.
 

The results came in.

The media went into deep shock.

As protests and riots then spread across America, the media neglected to mention a) they’d been bashing Trump because he said he might not accept the outcome of the vote, and b) here were large numbers of people on the Democrat side who weren’t accepting the outcome of the vote.

A new campaign had to be launched.

Suddenly, on cue, it was: Hillary Clinton lost because “fake news” about her had been spread around during the campaign.

Fake news sites. That was the reason.

These “fake sites” had to be punished. Somehow. They had to be defamed. Blocked. Censored.

Here is an excerpt from a list of “fake news” sites suggested by one professor. The list is circulating widely on the Web: Project Veritas; Infowars; Breitbart; Coast To Coast AM; Natural News; Zero Hedge; The Daily Sheeple; Activist Post; 21st Century Wire.

Free speech? Bill of Rights? Never heard of it.

Excuse me. “We won’t know what to protect?” Meaning what to favor, what to promote, what to lie about? Meaning only some speech is free?

Obama is way, way behind the curve. Thousands of websites and blogs have been exposing major media as fake for years. I started nomorefakenews.com in 2001.

If Google, Facebook, and Twitter keep expanding their censorship of “disfavored messages,” they’re going to pay a price. More and more users will go elsewhere.

The facade of the major media is getting thinner. You can see a glow of rage and resentment behind it. They’re desperately looking for revenge on the millions and millions of people who are deserting them and laughing at them.

They presumed too much. They presumed they had us in the palm of their hand. We were their property. We were transfixed by their authority.

All that is going away. Bye, bye.

The big shift is accelerating. Independent media are in the ascendance. Understand that. Recognize it.

The impossible is happening.

Fake news sites? Please. The major media are the biggest fakes the world has ever seen. Their anchors and star reporters are bloviating cranks. They’re dinner-theater actors.

Over the years, I’ve talked to some of them. I’ve warned them of their coming troubles. They were miles away from believing me. Now, they’re starting to sweat blood.

Major media news for America is still basically manufactured in New York and Washington—plus occasional outbursts from Hollywood creatures who bemoan the decline of inclusive liberalism, as they expand their gun-toting security staffs and dig deeper bunkers. The New York-Washington axis exists in a self-serving bubble, which has now taken serious punctures. The delusional attacks against “fake sites” underlines how out of touch these elites are with the rest of the country.

Independent media outlets are winning. They won’t be stopped.

When the people who now head the tech giants were growing up, they were heralding the Internet as a new era of free information-exchange. But now that they find themselves working with the government in the Surveillance State, they’re fronting for censorship. In fact, they’re showing they were never for freedom. That was a pose all along. They were, from the beginning, agents of repression. They can try to stop independent media now, but they will fail.

Fake web sites? What about fake companies? What about Google, Facebook, Twitter? Behind their happy-happy messages, they were built to propagandize, profile, and control.

Understand this: major media have a rock-bottom article of faith. It is: “We own the news.”

They can’t give it up. They’ll never give it up. It fuels everything they do. It’s the substance and core of their attitude.

As their ship goes down below the waves, they’ll be chanting it. “We own the news.”

But they don’t. In truth, they never did. For a time, they managed to sell that delusion to the people.

That time is drawing to a close.

The elite political class and their media minions fear more than independent news countering their own news. For obvious reasons, every civilization down through history has had its own monopolistic media, its central “broadcasting system.” Its controlled outlet. But now, The One has become Many.

That is the threat.

The rapid proliferation of The Many is an unpredictable X-factor.

The population is waking up to decentralized media. Instead of the hypnotic attachment to one basic information source – the habit of a lifetime – the public is learning to handle multiple sources. Therefore, the hypnotic spell is being broken and dissolved.

This is the basic problem for the elites.

How can they reinstate the trance?

By trying to censor the Internet? By creating a sudden war or other disaster, briefly “unifying” the country? These are not permanent solutions, particularly since more and more people understand such maneuvers and their true aims.

Awake is awake. Putting the genie back in the bottle – particularly when major media denizens aren’t very bright, as evidenced by their latest “fake news” scam – is on the order of trying to perform a piece of stage magic after the audience has already learned how it’s done.

Of course, the media clowns will try. And in the process, they’ll further expose themselves and actually assist in the awakening.

Boom.
