Immaculate Heart of Mary, Help us.

Dear Mother of God. on this your feast-day, when it appears the Director of our country’s Federal Bureau of Investigation refuses to answer the people’s representatives in Congress, and uses the canard that such and such a matter is under investigation, thereby using the tactic of deny and delay indefinitely, we ask for your divine intervention. Please motivate these senior members of our government to speak the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth in their testimony before the Congress and ignore the attempts of the “good ‘ol boy network” to influence their testimony. We ask this of you as you have been designated the patroness of our country under your title of the Immaculate Conception. read more

How Did All This Happen?

My first responsibility in this post is to quote the source which is:

Now, what happened to these IMH nuns can only be described as the culmination of Modernism’s attempt to destroy the Catholic Faith. For this reason I implore readers to go to the source listed above and read closely what happened. Perhaps then readers may understand why we are, from the papacy on down, in the grips of the “smoke of Satan.” A word of caution – the story is not for the weak of heart. read more

Abomination of Desolation???

< From the Gospel of St. Mark, Chapter 13: [12] And the brother shall betray his brother unto death, and the father his son; and children shall rise up against the parents, and shall work their death. [13] And you shall be hated by all men for my name’s sake. But he that shall endure unto the end, he shall be saved. [14] And when you shall see the abomination of desolation, standing where it ought not: he that readeth let him understand: then let them that are in Judea, flee unto the mountains: [15] And let him that is on the housetop, not go down into the house, nor enter therein to take any thing out of the house: [16] And let him that shall be in the field, not turn back to take up his garment. [17] And woe to them that are with child, and that give suck in those days. [18] But pray ye, that these things happen not in winter. [19] For in those days shall be such tribulations, as were not from the beginning of the creation which God created until now, neither shall be. [20] And unless the Lord had shortened the days, no flesh should be saved: but for the sake of the elect which he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. Will you agree with me that we seem to be living in the aforementioned times? And yet, we have the US Republican Senators in seeming disregard for all this refusing to vote en bloc for fiscal sanity and the agenda of our President, as the Democrats do, thus leaving our military without the means to adequately defend us.

To Bishops and Cardinals

Where are your cohones? You are letting satanic and evil forces wreak havoc in our beloved church. We can’t even know for sure who is pope with two men wearing the papal garb in Rome these days. Daily, it seems, incredible atrocities and blasphemies are painted or posted on walls formerly deemed sacred. What were formerly deemed mortal sins are now reserved to “individual consciences.” The man who claims the papacy seems more inclined to emphasize what he sees as abuses in the natural order, such as climate change or air conditioning, than the spiritual welfare of the souls entrusted to his care. Individual dioceses don’t preach from the same guidelines and traditional priests whose only crime is being faithful to the traditional Magisterium of Holy Mother Church for better than 20 centuries are being thrown to the wolves. Seminaries are shutting down and the number of youthful priests seems inadequate to replace those who are in the twilight of their priesthood Do you really believe that in your particular day of judgment, you will not be called to account for your collective failures to rescue the Church from the crisis in which she is engaged today? read more


Despite the problems in today’s world, we in the USA have much for which to be thankful. And so I offer to everyone my personal best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving today. Almighty God could have lowered the boom on us long ago but saw fit to allow us to escape His wrath. I don’t have a clue why He has blessed us so but I’m glad He has. God bless you all. Hint: Maybe it has something to do with the fact that our country is under the patronage of the Immaculate Conception.

Objective Truths? Down the Toilet!

Modernists of today in both the Church and State – “the whatever turns your crank or floats your boat” generation have, by their words and actions, thrown objective truths, or even the concept of such things, down the toilet . The evidence is everywhere. And, if anyone wants to know how this all got started, or at least received impetus, I refer the reader to at least three occurrences: the refusal of Pope John XXIII to comply with the request of Our Lady of Fatima in 1959, the “non-Council” of Vatican II placing Man before God, and the machinations of one Dr. Carl Rogers with the nuns of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the 60s. Google the subject if you wish; it’s too painful for me to recall in detail here. read more

Situation Ethics & Objective Truths

There are those who though nominally Catholic insist on putting forth the proposition that there are no objective truths and everything I do is governed by the axiom of “if I didn’t believe an action to be sinful, then there is no sin.” This, of course, flies in the face of what we were taught in the primary grades of Catholic schools in the days when those schools were truly Catholic and the nuns teaching us were themselves truly Catholic. Now, if I remember correctly the nuns told us we were responsible for knowing what acts were sinful and, if we were in any way doubtful, there were the Baltimore catechisms to instruct us (there is also this “ruler” in my hand to help you, wise guy). But, they also told us that the Natural Law was inscribed in the hearts of every human being by Our Lord Himself and therefore we knew certain acts that by their nature (and ours) were sinful such as the taking of an innocent human life. read more

William E. Celeste, R. I. P.

In your kindness would you please remember a classmate and true friend of mine, Bill Celeste, who attended St.Columbkille’s High School, Brighton MA, from ’54 – ’58. Though “sentenced” to the novus ordo all these years he maintained the Faith, despite having to tolerate the incredible abuses in the Archdiocese of Boston. His obituary may be viewed at and I thank you in advance for your kindness. God bless and comfort his wife, Eileen, and the extended family he left behind. read more

War is Hell

Sometimes people ask me what it was like at Da Nang during my tour there from April ’67 to April ’68. Until now, I have avoided recalling the memories due to the mental pain and anguish associated with them. But today, since it is Veterans Day I believe it necessary to let the younger generation know what it was like for those who were simply serving their country and following the orders of their superiors. So, I have provided two links that tend to show what it was like – at least in part. My thanks go to the men who posted their memories for everyone to see; I couldn’t do it – it still hurts too much. read more

Walk Gently, Mr. President

Walk Gently, Mr. President


We have been told that you will soon fly into DaNang on your visit to Vietnam. As one who served at DaNang AB during the TeT Offensive of ’67-’68 and saw my buddies in the cockpit of a B-52 literally fried to a crisp in their seats as they attempted a crash-landing at DaNang after having dropped bombs over North Vietnam, I make this plea.
That’s the country that you will now be visiting, Mr. President, the very same one that took over South Vietnam in the name of Communism and now purports to rule so many South Vietnamese who were left defenseless when our country pulled out of a war that had cost us so much in lives and treasure. So walk gently, Mr. President, for you will be on hallowed ground, And let their be no doubt about why I and many of my brothers served in that war, Mr. President, for it was to stop Communism from making inroads in SEA. These Communists, Mr. President, are now serving as your hosts as you travel in lands drenched with the blood of our brothers in arms. read more

Pure Evil

Don’t over-analyze it. It’s simple. Satan has infected the minds of individuals that are susceptible to his temptations. It’s not guns. Guns don’t kill people; people kill people. And don’t expect me to give up my right to defend myself and my family. It ain’t goin’ to happen, folks. To those who were victims of the tragedy in Texas yesterday I send my heartleft condolences along with the vow that there are still people in this country who will not drink the liberal progressive kool-aid that has infected this country since the 1960s. To kill Evil one must cut off the head of the snake; and that snake is the same one that wreaked havoc in the Garden of Eden. Get real. America, and get back to God and pack one if necessary while doing so. read more

Traitor Walks…

What in the world is going on in our country? Are the inmates running the asylum? it is not the United States vs Donald J, Trump it is the United States vs Bowe Bergdahl. Did the Judge allow his personal animosity towards President Trump to sway his judgment. Granted, Bergdahl took advantage of the option available to him to have his fate decided by the judge instead of a jury of his peers but what motivated the judge to rule as he did? Now it is altogether possible that Bergdahl was not in his right mind doing what he did but his actions have consequences. However, let’s all remember that there is a four-star general at the top of the command line that can alter or amend the verdict. Will he do so? My feeling is he won’t but we shall see. read more

Politicians with Blood on their Hands

Sorry to have to point this out but those politicians who have sponsored illegal immigration to this country have complicity in the murder of our fellow citizens killed by Muslim extremists. NYC is but one example of this. There is a legal immigration process which most of our ancestors used but now, today, that is being circumvented by the extremists. Diversity Visas? Are you kidding? Ah, but what about those who elected these creeps? Think about it! Schumer is blaming Trump for pointing this out. That’s the frosting on the cake. read more



So, I just wanted to perhaps make more of a statement than an explanation — give more of an explanation than what amounts to be a traditional press interaction.

Most Americans don’t know what happens when we lose one of our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines or Coast Guardsman in combat.

So, let me tell you what happens.

Their buddies, wrap them up in whatever passes of a shroud, puts them on a helicopter as a routine, and sends them home. Their first stop along the way is when they are packed in ice, typically at the airhead, and then they are flown to usually Europe, where they’re then packed in ice again and flown to Dover Air Force Base, where Dover takes care of the remains, embalms them, meticulously dresses them in their uniform with the medals that they have earned, the emblems of their service, and then puts them on another airplane linked up with the casualty officer escort that takes them home. read more
