The State-Run Media, Packed Courts, the Banishment of Christ, and the
Advent of el Presidente Perpetuo

, as most of you
already know, is Latin for sedition. Technically, sedition is the act
of a citizen or citizens who undermine the authority of the state by
calling for its downfall. So, on its face it would seem inept to apply
this term to the state itself. But seditio
another meaning, that of an uprising in general; in the current
situation everything that matters is upside down, absurd in of
themselves, so it is quite fitting that seditio
is used to define the ruling regime in Washington and its cohorts
throughout the switching points of popular culture in the country. Seditio
from within the seat of power - an uprising against the people
and the US Constitution actually - is precisely what is happening
before our very eyes, in the open with all immodest, shameless
exhibition in defiance of every American principle of fair play,
decency and standard practice and understanding of what constitutes a
free people worthy of the name.
The two primary engines that run this well-oiled machine, this despotic
gargantuan, we name Leviathan, are the media and the courts, not the
legislative branch as one might expect because it is the legislature
that is supposed to make law, after hearing from the people.
That pitiful body now sits in mum testimony - the response of the
ineffectual men we merit through our lack of due diligence and too much
deference to "experts" who are certified by themselves, raised to
prominence through sheer pandering to our weaker natures. The
schools and higher institutions, such as universities, are the illicit
handmaidens - another name is more apt, but being a lady who was
raised for rectitude, I will use this term in lieu of the more
descriptive noun - handmaidens who carry the oil for the lamps
beaming forth the revolution's perennial darkness day and night.
It may be only now that some of us have become aware of the
terrifyingly hideous creature that has seized control over every aspect
of our lives, strangulating us at every turn, but its nascent emergence
into the land of the free and the home of the brave has not been so
sudden. For instance, almost ten years ago, the late great Robert Novak
wrote in Mediocracy
"The national media is a melting pot where the journalists, regardless
of background, are welded into a homogeneous ideological mold, joined
to the liberal establishment and alienated from the masses of the
In agreement with this assessment:
"The most pernicious effect of the American media upon our national
destiny and welfare ... is that they are dominated by people of unholy
minds: secularists, militant atheists (Humanists), liberals, leftists,
pro-Communists, anti-Americans or unAmericans. In their concluding
chapter, Hargis and Sampson indict the media for their catastrophic
spiritual and patriotic failures:
"In its obsession with some stories over others, with its cooperative
attitude toward ultra-liberalism and its condescension and patronizing
manner toward those who believe Communism is Satanic and bent upon
conquering the entire world at the cost of destroying it if necessary,
the press is contributing to the development of a dangerous opinion.
The press' failure to address religious issues squarely and in a more
intelligent manner while featuring instead a flow of information and
communication spiked with the glorification of sex, violence,
obscenity, personal aggrandizement or destruction, trivia, sensation,
falsehoods, pettiness, superficiality, escapism, and the general
degradation of mankind runs the risk of attracting to itself like
lightning the wrath of God its Creator. (2:172-3)
"With their sympathy for Communism and secularism, the media may come
to experience God's wrath as Red suppression of the freedoms they have
abused in the United States.
"Within mammon established as the supreme media patron and
Hebreo-Christian moral principles and norms abandoned, the media
deteriorated in quality and dignity. What John C. Merrill, a professor
of journalism wrote about his field, applies well to a large part of
the secularist-liberal media:
"...pouring out for mass consumption large amounts of garbage: gossip,
unsynthesized bits and snippets of this-and-that, sensation-much of it
brainless, illiterate, superficial meaningless-created chiefly for the
entertainment-hungry, the lazy and the thoughtless ... we refuse to
admit openly how shallow and vapid American journalism really is."

Exactly, only the war against normalcy itself has grown more intense and more intensively diabolical since 1985.
We are in the zenith of the media monopoly, now not only working for
the regime, but raising nary an objection to the proposed monitoring of
every news medium by the FCC, which is supposed to license and oversee
in general, only the air waves, not news departments, cable, etc. When
this unconstitutional violation was broached as a proper subject for
the federal government, i.e. censorship in effect, no matter the
disclaimer by the government, the FCC responded that "it was suspending
As I have written thrice before: Indeed, the parsed phrase has taken on a
entirely new dimension to be deciphered like a secret language.
Note well the use of the term "suspended". The
FCC did not say it was curtailing the censorship [so-called
monitoring], merely suspending it. As always with Leviathan, a
many-tentacled splendor, it will be back and back again until it
succeeds in silencing or closing down FOX News, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, etc. How
do I know this is the purpose of the "monitoring" facade? Elementary.
Most of the media, electronic and print, is already doing the bidding
of the Obamarama which is satisfactory for the autocracy. There is no
need to inquire therein. And the same media has raised no objections,
certainly no serious qualms at all. Ergo
there is but one point to the power grab, to still and or mute the
resilient, uplifting, patriotic voices of those who speak the
truth, or at least attempt to discover it, which does not serve
Leviathan, whose very existence depends on deceit. It is only
conservative-traditionalist talk radio and some of FOX News that
seriously challenge the mediocrats and those who depend on their
propagandizing and censorship - deliberately distorting and refusing to
accurately report important news, so that the regime is shielded as
much as humanly possible. Their conservative-traditionalist
counterparts are a constant thorn in their side, so they welcome the
unconstitutional intrusion. This is rash and without foresight, for as
it is said in Spanish so insightfully: La revolución, como se dice, devora a sus
propios hijos. The revolution, it is said, devours all its children.
Without a vast free press dedicated to truth,
the people are hampered, stymied in their quest to maintain their just
liberty under the Constitution.
But it gets worse. Obama's ally, Cass Sunstein, has devised an
invidious invasion of the Internet, a hellish scheme whereby those
who oppose the ruling elite will be smeared until the smears stick;
images altered by hacking to influence people who may unwisely
judge too much by appearances. And more, such as planting convincing
lies to deceive, discourage and demoralize the people. It is ruthless,
without mercy - as designed by RULES FOR RADICALS' Saul Alinsky,
Satan's spokesman for the Left. People will not know what is true and
what isn't and the confusion will redirect so as to divide and conquer.
Morality does not even enter the picture for these fiends; what is
moral to them is what works. For uncovering this plot to destroy truth
and righteousness, we are indebted once more to Glenn Beck of THE BLAZE.
And who in Congress or the Courts will stop the steamroller trampling
underneath the very ground of our basic freedoms? Not Congress,
Congress? Oh that conclave of politicians who claim that they
do not have standing to sue over the abuse of "Executive Orders". No
one seems to know what to do, or so it seems. Cowardice leaps to mind
among other phrases. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. If an effort
does not succeed at first, try and try again - take a dynamic page from
the "administration." There is absolutely nothing to lose and
everything to be gained eventually. Then, there is also the matter of
plain, human dignity, which has taken a big hit these days. Dishonor overshadows honor to our disgrace
An abundance of
caution while arrogance has arrogated the right of autocracy by fiat
and fraud, with no lack of reluctance or reticence cedes precious
ground to illegitimacy and confers a dangerous precedent that will be
more difficult to dislodge if the trajectory continues: And no wonder -
Leviathan roaring uproariously all the way from Hell and back. To see
such a lack of common sense and vitality on the part of those we
to represent our interests - to uphold the grants in the Constitution
essentially, for the 10 Amendments are restrictions on the federal
government, not a license to rewrite them, is not only intimidating
[counted on by the Obamarites] - it
is nothing less than demonic - the Devil permitted free reign - a punishment from God for our sins
against the natural law, especially official approval for these sins,
committed in such massive revolt against the Divine law, it is almost
incomprehensible to most ordinary persons.
Leviathan has a cunning plan to take over under the guise of freedom,
every aspect of human life possible so that we are robots, no longer
free, slaves for plundering by unjust taxation for the ruler who envisions
himself a magnificent specimen of superior being fit to sit upon the
throne of aggrandizement and conceit. He rightly calculated that he had
almost all of the media to do his bidding and affirm his "nobility", not only viability.
But he knew he would face lawsuits and or a determined challenge from some quarters of the population
- those with foresight, courage, knowledge and a full grasp of the
nature of the enduring threat. To thwart this "rebellion", the
rejection of the corrupt aims of the regime, he needs the compliance of
the US courts to "legitimatize" the unthinkable, the unbearable, the
unrighteous. Most people are followers by nature and what is deemed
"legal" is considered thereby "moral" by them, most unfortunately
for the rest of us who know better. For over a generation, even before
the infamous Roe v. Wade ruling, the US courts have been liberalized so
that original intent of the lawmaker is no longer the primary
consideration unless it dovetails with a preconceived liberal nostrum.
I am speaking of the "Warren" Court. Everyone who knows anything at all
now knows that the courts are political, in contravention of the intent
of Constitutional grants. This is why the fight over nominees to the
various federal courts is so crucial. No one is really fooling anyone
anymore. You know it, I know it, they know it. We are not afraid to
admit this, the statists among us are though, i.e., to us, not to themselves
- they are still playing word
games, to add insult to injury.
What is right for statist-socialists - the hard core Left - is wrong
for ordinary Americans, traditionalists. The IRS targeting of
conservative groups - an entrenched, re-invigorated policy as of a few weeks
ago - and a Department of "Justice" investigation of a conservative
film-maker who is about to release a second documentary - selective
enforcement of minor charges trumped up to real criminality - none of
this is coincidence - it is the hallmark of the ruthless tactics of
RULES FOR RADICALS, Obama's political bible. The Dems in the states are
taking their cues and stepping up like pressure on those who are
determined to stop the massive government seizure of power, The latest
to have to undergo the gauntlet of persecution is Gov. Scott Walker of
Wisconsin. Let us pray he is made of sturdier stuff than Arizona's
quisling. It never ends.
Let us briefly look at a few aspects of leftist subversion through the courts, some citations:
"... Supreme Court justices who will interpret the law - not trying to make
new law ... Liberal judges do not interpret the law, they make it .
Hon. David B. Walker, a former Pennsylvania judge.
" ... decisions of the Warren's Court ... were violent departures from sound constitutional doctrine.
Joseph Sobran, author of jurisprudence, now deceased.
"... The nearest thing to a dictator in America is the fraternity of
federal judges, who think they are gods and can do about anything they
wish.' This is from:
An attorney-at-law, name withheld with good reason, he still has to appear before judges in his vocation as a lawyer.
"The Supreme Court, contrary to the role designated by the Constitution,
usurped legislative power by rendering decisions contrary to the will
of the American people and its elected legislators. There is almost a
consensus among thinking lawyers that the Supreme Court has stepped out
of constitutionally assigned bounds:
Raoul Berger should have settled the question once and for all in his
Government By Judiciary;
but the book, when it appeared in 1977, was
denounced, its argument evaded, its implications ignored. Now the late
returns are coming in - even from Professor Berger's critics.
Activist Michael Perry concedes that "there is no plausible textual or
constitutional justification for constitutional policy-making by the
Paul Brest, Berger's most damning reviewer, now adjures his peers
"simply to acknowledge that most of our writing [about judicial
reviews] are not political theory but advocacy scholarship-amicus
briefs designed to persuade the Court to adopt our various notions of
the public good."
Within the academy, however, liberal theorists concede that the Court has assumed an extra-constitutional role.
And Earl Warren's admiring biographer (and former clerk) G. Edward
White has just written: "Warren was never concerned with constitutional
text or intention. Rather, he believed that his job as judge lay in
discovering and articulating the 'ethical imperatives' he felt were (or
should be) embedded in the Constitution.
" [Adapted from THE WAR ON CHRIST, supra.
Warren's ideas were socialist, not traditionally American constitutional law.
Roger Baldwin, the founder of the ACLU [American Civil Liberties
Union], an avowed Communist who wanted to see this system replace our
Constitutional Republic, said that his organization would be the means
to instill the spirit of Communism. The "Rights" gambit was a feint in
a deadly game of "Chess" to
deceive the public; many a good attorney has joined the ACLU in order
to advance civil rights in good faith, unaware of the ulterior motive.
Roger Baldwin is dead, but his warped vision of "freedom" lives on in
the cases the ACLU takes on. He really wanted freedom from all
religious influence among other goals. The term, civil liberties is a
give-away. He meant civil, not religious, at least not for Christians.
Almost all of the cases the ACLU undertakes advances the secular cause
and rarely a Christian litigant. The few times this has occurred it is
because of an innocent, well-intentioned lawyer. These have been small
and essentially erased by the greater victories that marginalize
Christians at best.
recently the US Supreme court and its under courts have been a
mixed-bag of inconsistency and perplexity. Sometimes it defers to a
lower, almost always liberal court, thereby guaranteeing in the
practical sense that government's heavy hand will not be loosened; and
sometimes when it decides to take a case as with Obamacare, we know
what happened and possibly will again, now that Roberts has been
"neutralized" - and this is only the beginning of the betrayal of the
Constitution and our American freedoms. Where religious rights are
is now a toss-up, which reveals the utter peril in which we find
fact that we cannot even have some certainty here, says everything we
need to know, by definition.
One of the more indicative signals that the Supreme Court has broadcast
loud and clear is that "eminent domain" is no man's land - private
property is up for grabs in a battle between private [loosely tied to
public] interests that generate revenue for the state and the heck with
the just rights of property owners who are further victimized because
their property is first rendered useless or of less value in order to
further the greed of the state; eminent domain was intended to relate
to absolutely necessary public interests, not private.
Once the state can claim your property by confiscation, in essence, it
will next claim your children, reference the battle for the rights of
the Pelletier family in Massachusetts - the Justina case that is so
egregious and draconian one is mystified that even in our denigrated
state it has been allowed to continue for over a year without just
redress! The Pelletier family is reduced to poverty fighting the
massive assets of the state apparatus assailed against them, and all
because they wanted a different doctor than the ones at Boston
Children's to care for their daughter, a doctor who had been treating
her successfully; under the supposed vaunted "care" at Boston
Children's, Justina has deteriorated at an alarming rate. Boom! the
entire state forces in league with the hospital which is judge and jury
and no more parental rights! This can happen to anyone! If you think
you are still free to raise your children as you know God wants you to,
and as common sense dictates, guess again, and again once more!
In the offing, I conjecture is the abolition of home schooling unless
legislation preempts this "surgical" strike. The powerful monolithic
teachers' unions, the bedrock support for Obama, consider parental
rights to homeschool not only a threat to their hegemony over the
dumbing down of America, but a "cancer" in the body politic.
Lawlessness is now enshrined under the
banner of "law-making" and re"interpretation" of existing, long settled
law. And who is to stop them? Not Congress
! This present Congress, anyway.
Meanwhile the transformation of America rolls on at breakneck speed, so
much so that one can scarcely catch one's breath before the next
outrage spills out. Obama needed the second term to continue what he
began, and seeing how puny the opposition was, he quickened the pace.
Yet he has not begun to accomplish his aim. He will need a third and
perhaps a fourth term, even with the pussyfooting pusillanimity of the
moribund GOP. Enter the courts. By some stratagem yet devised, will he
be successful in attaining a repeat of the Roosevelt era? I just cannot
see him leaving the stage as he is the perennial campaigner and media
personality. We ought to say the cult of personality to be accurate.
But then, will America even still be here in one piece? since he is
attempting to downsize the military to the level of a third-rate
years is an eternity when things are in such a mess!
The entire effort of the Obama mega-manipulation is directed towards
the undermining of our legal system, whole and entire, without skipping
beat to pause and consider the possibility that he who lives by the
sword dies by he sword:
The Senate, under the great horned-toad, Harry Reid, has successfully
maneuvered the Senate rules so that there is a veritable lock on
liberal appointments to the bench in order that the regime's agenda is
backed up "legally". In conjunction with this, Eric Holder, #2 man of
the autocracy, and I surmise a future Supreme Court Justice, err, Injustice
has already urged state attorneys-general to ignore laws they
personally do not like! This is insurrection, sedition from within! Seditio
and then some!
Obama only has to remain in power long enough to appoint more radicals
to the Supremes, thereby absolutely gaining the advantage for
generations to come that the revolution will be the disorder of the
day. He won't actually need the Supremes if he and his minions can
effect the collapse of our southern border and the squashing of
sovereignty. There will be hordes of ready-made Democratic voters to
permanently exile the GOP into the hinterland of humiliation and total
marginalization. Since even he cannot be certain of various outcomes
within a particular time frame, he is banking on both scenarios,
leaving no proverbial stone unturned. And the GOP? Its
establishment adherents cannot wait to help Obama do them in. Rank, contrarian
stupidity is the least of their offenses. If it weren't so serious it
would be laughable to the nth degree. I mean these anti-tea party types
really believe the Democrats won't re-interpret any so-called brakes
built into any legislation they foolishly endorse. The Democrats will
lie, say anything to abet the revolution as peacefully as possible, if at all possible. They are nobody's fools.
For now there is only one moral authority large enough to rally any
resistance, although that entity is so attenuated due to weak and
or liberal-leaning Bishops who care more about open borders than the
rights of citizens who obey the law and follow the rules, it is almost
a joke at this point. As a lifelong, devoted Catholic I do not admit
this lightly and with great trepidation of soul. But still, there is
the once mighty Catholic Church to reckon with. This is why Obama must
pursue a policy of Schrecklichkeit
- harassment and low key terror or pestilence - to sap what little
strength remains, to test, try, and tether the American hierarchy. This
is what the contraceptive mandate was all about. If he can demoralize
the Church on this point he wins lock, stock and barrel. He once said,
"If they bring knives, we bring guns!" He wasn't kidding,
euphemistically or not! It is but a show trial of sorts since the
American bishops as a whole haven't effectively preached on
contraception for over a generation now, which is why this generation
is so much smaller in number and so enamored of the Zeitgeist
Obama is not stupid, he knows all this, even if the Bishops claim not
to know, it is all a bluster while he waits for them to either fold, or
the Courts to find some wriggle room a la
John Roberts & Company. If per chance this fails - we are not sure
of anything these days - he will simply have another trick up his
sleeve to keep the bishops off their equilibrium. Remember they are
solidly in his camp, but for abortion and contraception and the latter
is perfunctory only; the former is a dead letter for now; having
abandoned the flock to situation ethics because of their own cold feet,
there is not enough fire in the belly for virtual martyrdom required on
this front. Abortion is the law of the land first by black-robed decretal, now by
complicity of the nation as a whole. There are no words strong enough in the English language to
convey just how angry God is with us!
Obama may not fear the Church to
any extent, but he does fear Christ. The image of Christ is so fearsome
to Obama that he insisted images of Jesus be covered when he spoke at a
Catholic college early in his tenure. He knows the power of the Holy
Face, the Corpus
on the Crucifix more than many Catholics do, I am sorry to say.
Our feckless bishops' - except the handful, some of whom I have
lauded in previous columns - main mission is not the salvation of souls
but the social gospel as our former Bishop told the Boston press years
ago. Church finances, the ole parish two-step refined into a frenzied
tango and media-friendly overtures are the perceived instruments for
bare survival. It
is almost redundant to say that they are in Obama's camp, but for the
few stalwart shepherds true and inspiring that God permits us. When God
is angry with his people as Tradition teaches us, He sends us bad
priests and worse bishops. There is some hope because we have a dozen
or so faithful, blessed bishops. There were only six ten years ago,
now the number has doubled at least. There is hope, there is always
hope. I not only believe in miracles, I have come to rely on them.
If only we knew how to bring Christ front and center to Obama. Not the faux
Christ of liberation theology and its phony "social justice", but
Christ in His Passion, Christ in His One True Church, Christ Crucified,
Christ in the Sacraments, in the Blessed Sacrament
, in His Sacred Heart
Is it God's further chastisement that thus far we have failed so? I do
not know or if God is trying us to strengthen us for the martyrdom ahead, instead.
I repeat, it is Christ as He really Is
that Obama fears most. By
whatever means possible, the Light of Christ will be snuffed out,
whatever vestiges of Christendom remain are scheduled for banishment.
Make no mistake about this! Our religious freedoms are already waning -
we only have to look at the pitiful conquest of Gov. Jan Brewer in
Arizona and the rise of the Sodomite jackboot cliques and the swarm of
idolizers that suffuse the air we breathe. Her rationalization was so
incoherent she would do well in the Obama Cabinet, come to think of
it. Arizona was a trial balloon that soared. Watch for the domino
effect and faster than one can say Eric Holder, Eric Holder, Eric
If we will not have Christ in the public square we will have Obama, el Presidente Perpetuo
I am a realist and an ardent student of history:
