I always thought the only way to pause delivering babies would be for people to press “pause” on MAKING babies. Then again, what do I know? This NY hospital has it all figured out as they force everyone to vaxx, promptly lose about a dozen workers, forcing them to pause delivering babies.
Once again, the tunnel vision of viranoia is causing people and institutions to behave completely irrationally.
Vitamin deficiency, particularly Vitamin D, Vitamin C, and Magnesium, is the driving force behind a lot of illness and autoimmune problems for Americans.
Once we begin to understand that we’re better off addressing weaknesses in the immune system rather than “fighting germs” all the time, we usually return to the same important conclusion: we MUST boost our intake of these essential vitamins.
While that’s a great idea, and I’ve done so successfully myself, it does not mean you will eliminate the problem the first time you gulp a bunch of Vitamin D3 supplements. The process is a lot slower than you think, so patience is the key.
I want to share this quick video to help you understand the process a little better. Restoring your immune system and vitamin levels is not a snap of the fingers.
Since this blog is dedicated to an audience interested in health as well as holiness, I’m obliged to address two areas of life that SHOULD NOT be divorced from one another: physical health and spiritual well-being. Believe it or not, these are not opposed, separate, or mutually exclusive. They draw from one another in amalgamation.
Sometimes, we NEED the spiritual in order to address severe maladies in the physical realm. This does not mean every ailment will be addressed through prayer, but a surprising many of them will.
I would like to take some time in this blog post to discuss why I think the Blessed Virgin Mary will be the ultimate refuge from the disease, war, and tyranny that we imminently face in 2021. I can do this by showing a couple of great examples of how she has already done so throughout history.
Exhibit A: 16th Century Mexico – A place ravaged by the spread of disease and war. Upon the arrival of the imperial Spanish conquistadores, Mexico was devastated, first, by smallpox, and later, by TWO distinct episodes of plague. If one were to go by raw numbers or proportions, Mexico’s experience with three pandemics in one century may have made it the most contagion-beleaguered civilization in world history. Even the Black Death (which might have been what the immune Spaniards brought with them) didn’t hit Europe as hard as Mexico, which may have lost roughly 1/3 or 1/2 of its population, EACH TIME, IN ALL THREE PANDEMICS.
Could this have been divine retribution in some way against the pagan Aztecs? The Old Testament mentions countless examples of societies being punished for child sacrifice and other wicked acts. For their part, the Aztecs (as well as their neighbors, the Mayans) were fervent practitioners of human sacrifice, which usually involved removing the hearts from still-living victims. They were a brutal bunch, and although I wouldn’t normally condone the invasion they experienced by the Europeans, it’s hard to feel sorry for such a manifestly-wicked society. As St. Augustine reminds us in City of God, human sacrifice is rampant in polytheistic religions because the pagan deities are usually none other than demons. This might have been why God allowed the indigenous Mexicans to suffer so much pestilence in the 16th century.
Yet, as we would come to see, there was a light of hope amidst not only the diseases but the tons of bloodshed from fighting between the Aztec Mexicans and Spanish.
Our Lady of Guadalupe was the ONLY saving grace for Mexico in the miserable 16th century. The Spanish, who were more interested in power than spreading the Gospel, were not the ones to convert the indigenous Mexicans, but convert they did, and in miraculous fashion.
In 1531 Mexico, the Catholic faith barely existed, owed solely to some early missionary work. It was the direct intervention of Our Lady of Guadalupe who appeared to the peasant, St. Juan Diego, that changed the course of Mexican history. Aztec paganism would become extinct, the Emperor Moctezuma was already slain, the entire region would be embroiled in conflict for decades, and only the faith in Jesus Christ, radiated into Mexico through Our Lady, would hold Mexico together. The overall population in Mexico would crash by at least 50% to 60% in the 16th century and would not begin to rebound until the mid-18th century. By then, Mexico and most of Latin American were Catholic, much more civilized, and ceased ripping out hearts. This would not have happened without God through the intercession of the Blessed Mother.
Exhibit B: The Battle of Lepanto – A desperate Catholic remnant in the latter half of the 16th century, fresh off the burning sting of the Protestant Revolt and the schism of the Church of England, was nearly wiped off the face of the Earth by opportunistic Muslims. As God has promised, the Gates of Hell would not prevail against His Church, and they would not during that critical hour either.
The Battle of Lepanto, in 1571, was a naval contest between the rapidly encroaching Muslims against the Holy League (Catholic states led by the Pope) that would finally see an end to the centuries of fighting during the Crusades. The 16th Century Ottoman Muslims (who are A LOT LIKE THESE GUYS) thought they were moving in for a final blow, and by all military accounts, they should have won. They out-numbered the European Catholics three-to-one. However, despite insurmountable odds, the Muslims lost!
How in creation did they do that???
The Catholic side finally remembered what it’s true source of strength was, the power of Jesus Christ, made manifest on earth in His Holy Catholic Church. St. Pope Pius V, sensing that the end was imminent by all natural means, commanded all Catholic combatants to cease what they were doing and pray the Rosary. What a time to pray?! Right on the precipice of a bloodbath, an entire military takes a timeout to pray. This is unfathomable to modern thinkers.
The portrait above basically tells the story. Our Lady appeared in the midst of the fight and allowed the small fragment of Christian forces to take down the mighty Ottoman Empire. It’s either that or you have to believe that the Ottoman’s suffered some kind of mega mutiny, were unilaterally attacked by a Kraken, or decided they no longer wanted to conquer. Either way, they lost and the fight was over with the Catholics victorious.
Bottom Line: Our Lady kept the Church in Europe alive by winning a war against Muslims at almost exactly the same time she invigorated the faith into the hearts of Mexicans and settlers in the new world where it had not existed previously.
The skeptical Protestant who would commemorate the Reformation and wants nothing to do with veneration of the Blessed Mother might rethink how much they appreciate the fruits of that victory at Lepanto. If not for Our Lady, had the Catholic navies fallen to the Muslims, it would have spelled the end of Christendom altogether and the Muslims would have conquered Europe, Protestants included. There is no reason to believe the Ottomans would have “tolerated” the Lutherans. Even centuries later, the Ottomans were not exactly known for that. They would have slaughtered them and replaced their Protestant churches with synagogues. Think about it. Did the Lutherans even possess a military to mount a resistance to the Muslims? Negative.
Our Lady indirectly bailed out the ungrateful Lutherans, Anglicans, and all other “bible-alone” Protestants. You’re welcome.
If you’re keeping score, both of these Marian miracles (Our Lady of Guadalupe and Our Lady of Lepanto) occurred in the 1500’s, arguably the last enormous crisis time to impact the Church and Western Civilization. What a time it must have been to be alive, a familiar sentiment that many of us feel today. Great saints emerged from those crisis days. So too will they emerge once more?
As you can tell from these tales, the 16th Century was a near extinction event for the Church. Only Our Lady’s active rescue made it possible for the faith to survive and flourish. We maintain these lessons for a reason. We may be experiencing yet another near extinction of, not only the Church, but what’s left of Western Civilization.
By now, many Catholics are already aware of Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke’s serious fight with the coronavirus and how he has been hospitalized. Pray for his recovery, especially as his critics have latched onto his suffering as an opportunity to castigate him over the vaccine madness. Pray for their conversion as well.
This blog has morphed into more of a health/fitness brand, but I still like to mention things about finance every now and then.
So, how goes the health of your wealth? Does it mirror what’s going on in the world (a roller coaster of booms and busts where you’re dependent on the whims of the market and political fiat)?
Robert Kiyoaski gets to the bottom of some of the wild and weird stuff that’s impacted the financial vitality of the world and individuals, and so much of it emanates from something really bad that happened . . . in . . . 1971.
Click the image of Robert below to find out what that is:
Are you somebody suffering from headaches because of the awful facemask mandates? You’re not alone. Luckily, it looks like there could be at least some way to work around it a bit. I still hate the face panties, but I just found out about this:
Doug’s wife is a nurse and is required to wear a mask at work. Like many mask Nazi victims, she started getting headaches. Never had them before. She has found a company that has invented masks so thin and sheer that you can actually breathe through them without getting headaches. But nobody can tell. They were developed by people who know masks are worse than useless, but understand that many are forced to wear them or get fired. My guess is that somebody made a mask out of panty hose, and decided there would be a market for them. If any of your readers want these fake masks, here is the website.
My heart goes out to those of you caught between the rock of a job and the hard place of unemployment. These non-diapers may help you survive your 8 hours so that after work, you can defy, protest, and rebel.
A lot of people suffer from itchy, swollen, red, and irritated skin because of stress problems. This can run the gamut of everything from Candida to Herpes or even Psoriasis. Our skin is a function of what we eat/drink, how well we sleep, and also whether we can calm down and stop stressing.
Dr. Eric Bakker is one of my favorites when it comes to understanding the connection between skin health and stress. Check out his example of how bad food and stress can aggravate the Herpes condition:
I get my favorite coffee from MYSTIC MONKS (Carmelites) who live in a monastery in the wilderness of Wyoming.
How cool is that?
This is NOT a paid ad, but because I’m so grateful for this terrific cup of coffee this morning, I have to let everybody else know about the Mystic Monks. You should check them out and give their coffee and tea a try. They taste fantastic. The monks even produce a decaf coffee called “Vespers.” Vespers refers to their evening prayer. Get it? You do decaf in the evening.
God bless these men who have devoted their life to God and I thank them for terrific coffee too.
What is the most common health pitfall for Catholics and Conservatives of our times?
Obesity? Inflammation? Brain Fog? Depression? Those are all good guesses.
It’s relationships and how they impact overall mental health. Yep, sex, relationships, marriage, and courtship. These ARE health issues and they must be addressed if you would ever have a fighting chance of fulfilling your vocation to serve God. This is to say that you would not be SPIRITUALLY HEALTHY without making sure your relationships followed God’s design for your life.
So, for Catholics, find out more about how to do get better at your relationships with each other (and God) by learning everything you can about their dynamics as well as how to understand traditional sex roles. Here’s a great 10-part video series on that topic by Timothy Gordon (Rules for Retrogrades):

This is some prescient information from Dr. Mercola with regards to statins and other medication related to cholesterol control. We’d better be extra careful about these sorts of things before getting attached to Lipitor and the like.
I will fire basically everyone, all incoming seminarians will be required to go to boot camp and profess the Oath Against Modernism, nobody in the hierarchy will be allowed to be gay, I’m bringing back the Papal Tiara, I’m bringing back capital punishment (especially burning at the stake), all Jesuits will be required to undergo an evaluation to maintain their faculties, Fr. Altman will be fully reinstated and consecrated a bishop and created Cardinal, Fr. Z will be made Prefect for Divine Worship, the Latin Mass will be reinstated as the ORDINARY form of the Mass, communion in the hand and versus populum will be made anathema, bishops will be required to seek papal permission to shut down their dioceses for more than a single Sunday, all priests will be required to memorize the 10 Commandments (in ORDER, there will be a quiz), marriage annulments will be required to endure a 2-year cooling off period before approval, . . . and I’m just getting started.
Long live, Pope Pius XIII
Ditch the State! Embolden the Papacy! Love Holy Church!
You can set your watch to the way certain squishy Republicans behave and how quickly they cave into the mandates of the Left.
This never applies to the Rand Paul’s or Thomas Massey’s of the world. It ALWAYS applies to Senator Mitch McConnell and others like the Governor of Alabama, Kay Ivey. They’ll take the right stand on a position . . . for about five minutes until they get pressured out of it by political forces. The same can be said of the “conservative” media outlets like Faux News.
For a great of example of that cowardice, see this article where the same group of squishy Republicans are caving into the vaccine hegemony.
Don’t fall for it, folks. In fact, as I see all my political enemies line up on the side of vaccines, face panties, and tyranny, I’m all the more confident that my positions are correct.
So, don’t start bitching and complaining if you don’t want that to happen. This is addressed to my fellow Latin Mass participants in light of Traditionis Custodis. I’m not saying you have to be hyper obedient or a zombie about it, but we’re being tested and the Pope wants us to backlash against him.
Don’t let it happen. Here’s a good summary of that advice from Tim Gordon:
Some of you have probably been wondering if there would ever be a Motu Proprio to restrict the divisive and offensive usage of the Pachemama idol in Catholic parishes.
Good news! There is and I just found it! As a matter of fact, I found SEVERAL. Check out this thing called “the bible.” Man, it’s soooooo cool and easy to comprehend. So without further ado, here are the Motu Proprios!
4 Kings 23: 21-25. Here, one of the ancient Old Testament kings erected idols, was rebuked by God, but, by cooperating with Gods commandments, repented and was made anew. Good things happen to those who amend their lives. This king listened to God’s Motu Proprio and was rewarded.
3 Kings 16: 31-33. This king provoked the Lord more than ANY other king by erecting idols in the temple. God restricted him extensively in response. This king FAILED to heed God’s Motu Proprio to knock it off with his idolatry.
Exodus 32. Do you remember the story of the Golden Calf that the Hebrews had Aaron (Moses’ brother) make for them? Well, God had issued a very important Motu Proprio restricting the worship of idols (see the 1st Commandment), but, alas, the Hebrews thought it better to ignore that one. For their efforts, God had them slain. The wages of sin are indeed death.
2 Corinthians 6: 16-18. Do you think the Motu Proprios come exclusively from the Old Testament? Think again. St. Paul reminds us that we ourselves are temples for the Holy Spirit. We should not ignore this Motu Proprio by violating our personal temples with wicked idols. Be sure to thank St. Paul for this efficacious, east-to-read Motu Proprio. One way to screw this up would be to give too much love and affection to that Pachemama monstrosity. Don’t do that then.
So, there you have it. This is but a sampling of the HEAVY RESTRICTIONS God has placed on us with regards to the use of graven idols such as the Pachemama. Everybody should be obedient and rid the world of garbage like that immediately. Perhaps the Vatican would be at the vanguard of this.
Anything else would be . . . DIVISIVE & DISOBEDIENT!
Michael Matt is one of the best at pumping up the winning side of the culture wars. Don’t forget . . . the winning team is Church-loving, freedom-loving Catholics. The folks in charge in all the world’s institutions are scared. For that reason alone, there’s no way they should scare you (totally backwards).
Yes, when you consider how much the alternative sucks.
Say what you will about “Latin Mass Rad Trads,” who were basically canceled yesterday. The alternative, mainstream, worldly Novus Ordo Catholicism, is reprehensible. A picture is worth a thousand words. Here are some photos that illustrate how rotten the modernists (the opposite of Rad Trads) are in belief and practice.
1. Eucharistic Dispensers
3. Clown Masses
4. Cardinal McCarrick
5. Hideous Modern Architecture
6. Face Panties
7. Fr. James Martin, SJ
8. Catholic Politicians
So, there you have it. Those are some fantastic reasons why you should become a Rad Trad, all of which revolve around a common theme: the alternative REALLY REALLY SUCKS. It’s not even ballpark, guys. Too many modernists wake up every morning, wrap a cord around their arm to get the veins visible, then inject themselves with 300 cc’s of Satan.
You don’t want to do that.
Ditch modernism! Ditch the “Spirit” of Vatican 2 (discern the spirits for crying out loud) Ditch Clown Masses, Hideous Snake Buildings, & Fake Catholic Politicians. Ditch the State!
Well, at least lately, that’s the case. Haiti, Tanzania, and Burundi have all recently experienced an assassination of their heads of state. Each of these presidents opposed vaccines and/or lockdowns, and they paid with their lives.
So, friends, ask yourselves . . . is this okay? Why would a legitimate regime or legitimate authorities (as the Davos crowd fashions themselves) need to KILL its opponents? If the truth speaks for itself, why would opposition have to be censored, controlled, manipulated, and even destroyed?
Red Pill: the whole COVID nightmare has had nothing to do with epidemiology, but rather everything to do with totalitarianism. Totalitarians are, of course, not beyond the use of MURDER to accomplish their agendas.
I saw this coming from the start. I don’t fault if you if you did not understand it at first, but I earnestly hope you are getting it now. We cannot afford to ignore this murderous regime (the Gates, Faucis, Soros, Schwabs, et al. of the world) any longer. Pray, take action, prepare accordingly. Don’t panic, but recognize what’s really happening in the world.
You don’t have to obsess over whether the world is falling apart. As this episode of the Grace Force Podcast reminds us, we have plenty of work to do before the world comes to a close.
As I’ve said before myself, we have to stop panicking over the end times and get back to reality. It’s not the time to hunker in a bunker. Don’t shelter in place. Don’t hide from people. Evangelize and bring souls closer to God. You have a duty to do that (not optional).
If you want to live forever, and only in this crummy natural world, you must abide by its wicked technocracy. Transhumanism and technocracy go hand and hand.
This is God’s way of telling us to stop idolizing a long natural life; to live this life only as a preparation for worshipping Him forever in heaven.
By all means, learn the natural ways to become healthy, because a good body can energize a good spiritual life, but don’t allow that alone to force your eye off the prize. The prize is eternal salvation. It is not the pursuit of an endless natural life.
Fr. Dave Nix gives an excellent and concise view of what we’re up against right now.
Just remember not to get overly bogged down by all the evil. It’s Sunday. We’re commanded by Our Lord to FEAR NOT! Continue to pray as often as you can, adore the Blessed Sacrament, be ready for anything, go to Confession when you sin, and block out the wicked temptations and thought traps from the evil one.
He says our world is like “Revenge of the Nerds – American Psycho Version.”
Barnes even makes the point (about 8/9 minute mark) that we just went through a Milgram Experiment by cooperating with “authority figures” during the scam lockdown this past 1 1/2 years. This closely mirrors what I’ve been saying from the beginning, particularly in my book, Caesar Vacantism (Chapter 4).
Maybe, by the grace of God, more folks will rebel and not allow themselves to be cucked into “do it for grandma” like they were last year. This is a chance for the lukewarm to catch fire and fight back against face panties tyranny.
Almost everybody has encountered the Gospel passage where Our Lord is tempted by the Pharisees, who try to corner Him with a conundrum over whether to pay Caesar’s taxes. I even began my book with that passage.
I mention this scripture as a point of reference; not because I wish to revisit the many problems with taxation, but to focus on the more important element: our obligation to render unto God!
I thought of one great way to do this. Follow these instructions:
Take out your Rosary or Crucifix
Whose inscription is on it?
Do you see where it says “INRI”? Most Rosaries have that at the top of the Cross.
What does that mean? Well, it’s a Latin abbreviation for Iesu Nazarenus, Rex Iudaeorum. It translates to Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews. This is what Pontius Pilate had his men label the Holy Cross.
We commemorate this inscription, which was also made in Greek and Hebrew, as part of our devotion to the Holy Cross.
As Our Lord made the Cross holy, to be an instrument of our salvation, we venerate all aspects of it, including, by association, its languages.
Since Latin has been deemed a holy language, sanctified by Our Lord’s passion and death on the Cross, we ought to revere it. Our Lord made Latin holy, whereas it was not yet so when it merely dignified the name of Caesar on the currency.
Therefore, Render Unto God . . . with an abundant use and love of Latin!
Notice that all of those involve prayer? Again, it’s because Latin is a prayerful and holy language, and one of the treasures of the Church . . . particularly within its LATIN rite. We honor God with its pious usage.
There was once a politician named Teddy Roosevelt, who liked to remark about the need to “speak softly and carry a big stick.” We, as Catholics, do not need somebody like Roosevelt to instruct us of that. By virtue of baptism and confirmation, we are imbued with the supernatural strength to carry a big stick (the Cross!), follow Our Lord, and speak softly with him in prayerful supplication. I suggest we utter some of those softly-spoken words in Latin, so that we may further love and glorify God, being ever mindful of his sorrowful passion, that hefty price He paid for our salvation.
What ever could we do to repay him?
Render unto God!
Deus vult! Ave Maria, Deo Gratias! Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum!
Note: That article sucks, but it’s good for a laugh. In a nutshell, they surveyed women on dating apps and found out that they don’t want to fornicate with non-vaccinated men. This was from dating apps like Tinder, OkCupid, Plenty of Trash Fish, etc.
This is the easiest time in the history of everything to remain celibate.
I’ve noticed a great many folks have reached the conclusion that 4th of July, the perennial celebration of independence, has become a flavorless salt of of a holiday. Fewer and fewer people take it seriously.
LewRockwell.com columnist, Paul Craig Roberts, warns that today’s 4th of July celebration may be the LAST ONE.
I’ll not weigh in on that other than to say it wouldn’t surprise me.
I will, however, say: good riddance.
The American experiment is clearly finished. As I’ve detailed in my book, Caesar Vacantism, we cannot, without extreme jest, consider ourselves to be a legitimate country, a non-communist country, or anything resembling a “free country” any longer.
If that’s the case, why bother celebrating something like July 4th? Isn’t that just a perfunctory exhibition, an excuse to “fire up the grill” for no substantive reason other than ephemeral pleasure?
No, we’re wasting our time with halfhearted attempts to simulate or reinvigorate patriotism. We have a better chance of using the shock paddles on somebody whose heart stopped beating a month ago.
My suggestion: ditch the stupid July 4th “LARPING” and focus your energy elsewhere. Secular holidays are absurd at face value anyway. How in blazes do you get a “holy day” out of something secular? It’s a contradiction in terms and a farce.
Focus our energy on what? Well, it’s a blog about choosing the Church and God over the crummy, soul-less state. It would make sense to start there for an alternative. This year, 4th of July falls on a Sunday. If you feel so compelled to celebrate a false sense of independence, why don’t you exercise your right as a free person to worship God? I can’t imagine how it’s possible for allegedly free people to have fallen for the virus ruse so much that they surrendered the right to worship God in public.
Go to Mass! If you’re not Catholic, go anyway, because then you can work on becoming Catholic. You can learn that Christ’s bride, the Church, isn’t just about gay dudes in red/purple outfits. It’s the mystical body of Christ, protected by the Holy Spirit, endowed with the permanent, unassailable, and unwavering teaching authority handed down by God. The teaching authority IS NOT the awful heresies of some of its clerical members. It’s not just “whatever the Pope feels like.” It’s a lot more. I invite you to delve into that more yourself. I can say a lot about it, but you would never fully get it until you took your own initiative to investigate and learn for yourself as well.
Bottom Line: Don’t waste brain power on trying to salvage meaning from 4th of July. It’s gone the way of the Dodo in terms of societal significance. Spend time growing with your family, seek out God, worship God in public no matter what the various bastards say, and don’t apologize to any of those rotten fools who are addicted to Satan.
I’ve told so many people this stuff as well: you have to proliferate your immune system by a) getting the right vitamins (especially D, Magnesium, and Omega-3), b) exercising effectively, c) eating whole foods (eggs, baby!), d) sleeping and relaxing every day, e) avoiding toxic substances, which includes most of what you get from the medical-industrial complex.
Also, don’t hide in your house. Go outside and get some sunlight. Don’t cover your beautiful face with face panties. Get some UV-rays on it (not a sunburn though).
Germs will not kill you if you utilize and bolster your God-given immune system.
