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


News media reports have it that ISIS is claiming responsibility for the tragic and inhumane attack by an obviously deranged individual in Las Vegas, NV last evening. For anyone to claim responsibility for this event is just beyond the pale but that is typical of these deranged agents of Satan. May Almighty God provide the victims with comfort and solace and may our prayers ascend to Him for that purpose. O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee.

In Solidarity With Tulsa

In Solidarity With Tulsa

The Tulsa post reminds me of a similar struggle the Tradition-minded laity in Colorado Springs endured in order to preserve the Mass and catechesis in effect prior to the devastating changes imposed following Vatican II. Can you imagine having to say Mass in a Funeral Home, the irony being stupendous, while the Hierarchy promises “regularization” of the SSPX will soon occur?

My brothers and sisters in Tulsa, we at the Servants of the Holy Family Chapel in Colorado Springs, stand with you in your efforts to preserve Tradition in Liturgy, Practice and Belief, while those who have “canonical” stature work to destroy all that we hold dear. In fact the following image shows efforts we have underway to explain who we are: read more

Thousands Marching In Boston

Well, without casting any aspersions on the marchers I can think of a better way of spending this August Day than on the steamy surrounds of Boston Common. It would be to spend the day at one of the magnificent beaches on the Cape with sunglasses, bathing attire and a cool drink at hand. Oh well, to each his own.

The Answer???

Please accept my apologies in advance if this post offends your sensibilities; I am outraged over what the terrorists are doing to us in the name of their god – whoever they claim that might be. You see, I have two sons: one of whom served in law enforcement for over 20 years and one who is serving as a firefighter-paramedic even now. They are charged with having to protect and/or rescue their fellow-citizens from the effects of what these deranged terrorists are doing.

I am retired now but in my 24 yr AF career I learned that one must “fight fire with fire” in order to put an end to what these deranged minds are plotting against us. And so I say, we must kill them before they kill us. We must use every tool available to us, including infiltrating their networks with our own informants and, in the event we find them in the act of terrorism, dispatch them quickly to their eternal home. In order to kill a snake one must cut off its head and we ought to begin doing that ASAP. read more

What’s So Funny?

What is wrong with the above picture? (taken from an article in Lifesite News entitled: “Pope Francis: ‘I do not feel that Cardinal Burke is my adversary’”) You can read the article at:
Should these two be laughing and kidding with each other considering the state of today’s Church and considering what the Pope has done to Cardinal Burke in terms of his position in the hierarchy? I don’t know – it just doesn’t seem right to me. read more

A Call to Action

Last Sunday. our priest made a Call to Action for those in attendance at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass saying in effect: “We are in a War and we must act in accord with our Confirmation mandate to be Christian soldiers in light of what is happening to the Church these days.” He went on to say it’s not enough to merely attend Mass and receive the sacraments because the Church hierarchy has failed, largely, to answer the “Call to Battle” He recalled Cardinal Oddi (RIP) once telling him that everything he was doing was right but he couldn’t say so publicly because the rest of the cardinals would attack him. Those who recall Cardinal Oddi would know that he was one of the most conservative of the modern-day cardinals of the post Vatican II church. He went on to say that many of these cardinals visit their website regularly but remain silent during this widespead apostasy. read more

Regular Rules of Order???

John McCain is a US Senator who says he voted against the “Skinny” Obamacare repeal bill because he believes the Senate must act according to its regular rules of order. His vote against the bill doomed it to failure. But Republicans have a 52-48 majority in the Senate and if they had voted “en block” as the Democrats are wont to do under the slimy Sen. Schemer (intentionally misspelled), the bill would have passed.

But we are not living under “regular rules of order” and emergency measures are called for. With all due respect to the war-hero, ex-POW, who we are told has brain-cancer, those of us who like him have borne the burdens of war must ask: “What in the world is going on and who in heck is in charge?” read more

You’d Better Watch Your Step, Donald!

Throwing faithful Catholics like Spicer to the wolves, Donald, is only going to get yourself out of office as soon as possible. Promoting pro-abort, pro-LGBTQueer, pro-choicedeath Scaramucci to Communications Director is only the latest in bone-headed moves you have made using Twitter to sew dissent among those who supported you in the Campaign. Get real! Twitter is NOT your friend and Jeff Sessions is NOT your enemy. Are you in the throes of Alzheimer’s? Have you lost your mind? Resist the tendency to open your mouth when it should be kept closed. Act like a President, not a clown. read more

Is Modernism Evolving into Nihilism?

From the world-wide web we have this definition: “Existential nihilism is the philosophical theory that life has no intrinsic meaning or value. With respect to the universe, existential nihilism suggests that a single human or even the entire human species is insignificant, without purpose and unlikely to change in the totality of existence.” This concept also leads to the the idea of theological nihilism which I will describe as the denial of God and all of His attributes. In essence, then, atheism is the logical conclusion if this concept is pursued to its eventual end. read more

My Response to Kim_Jong_Nitwit

We won’t describe what action we might take in response to your latest provocation. The free world abhors your acting like a deranged child playing with the lives the of people of North Korea, indeed, of the entire Korean peninsula. But, rest assured, our response to a new provocation from you will result in the taking away of your toys. (Those of us familiar with our military capability know full-well what I mean. The media would like to picture our nation as a paper tiger but that does not apply to our current leadership or the tools at our disposal.) read more
