My partner, Bill Gannon, and I were at the Buenos Aires airport when we got the call from our Captain back at LAPD.

“Sergeant, I need to ask you two to go to New York City before you head back to Rome.”

“How’s that, Sir?”

“I just got a call from the Commish at NYPD. He’s had a tricky personnel brush fire flaring up since St. Patrick’s Day. He’d appreciate an hour with you.”

“Sure thing, Captain. What’s the beef?”

“From what I could make of it, NYPD has a lot of Irish cops. Most of ’em still show up for Mass most Sundays. They’re sore about how the Archbishop there has gummed up the works and let poofsters overrun what they consider THEIR own parade.” read more


This is the Eternal City. It was a cool morning and my partner, Bill Gannon, and I were on our way to see Capitano Al Dente at his office, just off the Via del Teologico Imbecelli, renamed a month ago to honor some cardinal in the Midwest for his loyalty to the current pope. I’d seen an LAPD flash message about that guy right after Bill and I arrived in Rome. We figured our colleagues in the Chicago PD had their work cut out for them.

“Y’know, Joe. My wife’s brother is a priest. Taught theology in Chicago up until last Christmas break.” read more

DRAGNET in Sunny Nuovo Roma

“Il mio nome è Venerdì. Porto un distintivo della polizia…”

“Joe, knock it off. We broadcast this show in English.”

“Okay, but you know what they say.”

“How’s that?”

“When in Rome, do as…”

“Yeah, I’ve heard that. The problem is that’s what brought us here in the first place.”

“How’s that?”

“Joe, didn’t you listen to that podcast from Canon Hesse on the flight over?” read more

Social Media Pages Backing Arroyo

Facebook is heating up in support of Raymond Arroyo vs. the mobsters in Rome and at the IMF. The Remnant FB page has a surge of good guys and gals speaking up against typical neo-Kathlyx still trying to rearrange the deck chairs on Bergoglio’s version of the Titanic.

If someone can link the Remnant FB entry of this evening onto AQ, it would be terrific.

DRAGNET Visits the CDF

My name’s Friday. I carry a biretta. It was 9:32 AM when the call came in from the Rome precinct. My partner, Bill Gannon, carries a biretta, too. Cops need undercover disguises more often than Hollywood imagines.
We were working the day watch outta Bunko. Msgr. Magnapasta ran the show at CDF and wanted backup. Gannon and I discussed how it might go down while we made our way through traffic.
We arrived before 10, grabbed a quick cappucino and went up to the Msgr’s office. Nice place. Lotta tapestries.
The Msgr. introduced us to his staff. Good guys. The new, old breed, as we called them. All young and Thomists to the core. Bright, tough kids with a billion souls to straighten out. But they were confident in their mission.
After the previous pope was sent packing back to South America following his last tango in Paris, an event even cable news channels were too embarrased to put on the air, the new boss, Pope Tyrannus – a former Olympic boxing gold medalist and Force Recon Major in the Corps, prior to ordination in the SSPX – went through the Vatican with a shotgun. Within a month, the College of Cardinals looked more like a one room schoolhouse than the “Club Med / Havana” it became after 2013. Yeah, things were lookin’ up.
“Here’s the latest intel from the pope’s man in Washington, Friday. The USCCCP, as soon as His Holiness fired 75% of the bishops in America and Europe, left us a little going-away present. Cute, eh?”
Magnapasta gave Gannon and me a copy of the file to take back to our office for further study. Bill’s eyebrows peaked as he glanced through the introductory remarks from the nuncio, another former combat officer. Royal Marines, in fact.
The Msgr. walked us to the elevator. As we got into the car Joe showed me a page from the file with a map of all the clandestine feminazi “seminaries” the USCCCP had been running under the guise of vocational beautician schools in various inner-city areas. Chicago, Boston and San Diego each had a half dozen of ’em, all funded through misleading titles Bill and I immediately recognized as CCHD front organizations.
“Says here, Joe, the Conference set a launch window for next year to put these priestesses into rural parishes. Makes sense, y’know? That way, if the folks in the pew revolt the PR damage is a lot easier to contain.”
I didn’t say much. I was still mulling over the page I’d glanced at, back on the elevator. The USCCCP had actually voted, in a private Executive Session, to install Caitlyn Jenner as the new President of Notre Dame.
I asked Bill to remind me to call the Msgr. and ask him to advise the new pope to re-watch the scene from “Jaws” where Roy Schneider realizes the crew was gonna need a bigger boat.
Yeah, promising as he was, Pope Tyrannus and his Barque was going to need a mine sweeper before this reform effort sank while beginning to get underway…

Pray for us!

I include an ancient prayer as I ask for prayers for my family and my neighbors and friends here in the San Diego area. We were issued a serioud high wind / wildfire warning a short time ago for tonight through late Thursday, Dec. 7. I went through this three years ago and pray not to have to do so again.

My sincerest thanks for your charity!

My Friend George M. Has Died, RIP

I just learned my truly dear friend died overnight at Bflo General Hospital. He was scheduled for brain surgery this morning but his heart gave out overnight.

A scholar, a gentleman and an exemplary Catholic.

My sincere gratitude for your prayers for the repose of his truly innocent, learned and most charitable soul.


Prayer Request

George died overnight,Prayers for his soul are most gratefully acknowledged.

I have just been informed that a dear friend, George M., from my old home town faces brain surgery on Tuesday, October 24, to remove a tumor. He also has a tumor on one kidney.

A classicist, George is a sterling example of Catholic scholarship, charity and piety.

My thanks in advance for your prayers.


Fr. Ronald Sams, SJ. RIP. Please pray for him.

Fr.Sams was often my confessor and he was an extraordinarily charitable pastor for my late wife, to whom provided Extreme Unction and who offered the Holy Sacrifice for her funeral.
I am deeply grieved by his death and appreciate each of your prayers for him.
I offer the kind, pious prayers of one of our most fervent, devout AQ members.

O God, Thou didst raise Thy servant, Fr. Sams, to the sacred priesthood of Jesus Christ, according to the Order of Melchisedech, giving him the sublime power to offer the Eternal Sacrifice, to bring the Body and Blood of Thy Son Jesus Christ down upon the altar, and to absolve the sins of men in Thine own holy Name. We beseech Thee to reward his faithfulness and to forget his faults, admitting him speedily into Thy holy presence, there to enjoy forever the recompense of his labors. This we ask through Jesus Christ Thy Son our Lord. Amen. read more
