“I now believe that only Benedict is pope…and that Bergoglio is an anti-pope. I crossed over that line on June 25th.”

There seems to be something about June, month of the Sacred Heart, that brings truth and clarity. It was in June 2016 that Ann Barnhardt became convinced, by weight of the evidence, that Benedict is still pope. In June of 2017, I came to the same conclusion. Now in June 2020, Dr. Ed Mazza publicly revealed his incredible research at the beginning of the month, and by the end of the month, Laramie Hirsch of the forge-and-anvil.com blog has come out BiP:

I now believe that only Benedict is pope…and that Bergoglio is an anti-pope. I am not dogmatic about this. If Catholics disagree, ok. If other Catholics think Bergoglio is pope, I understand, and I don’t hold it against them. There’ve been saints who swore fealty to anti -popes before. It happens. But as for me, I crossed over that line on June 25th. I’ve toyed with the thought before. (See also HERE). I’ve even occasionally speculated that Bergoglio was the False Prophet. Indeed, much of what I’ve shared about that man has been unflattering. But I finally stepped to the other side of the argument this month. And now I’m in the “Bennyvacantist” camp.

What pushed me to this point? Was it something Bergoglio said or did? Was I just in a bad mood? Am I letting my emotions dictate my position? No.

First thing’s first. I thank Ann Barnhardt for doing yeoman’s work, and laying down the base foundation for this stance. She was one of the very first to boldly and publicly propose the idea that Bergoglio was not pope. She was the first to take the leap, believe in this conviction, and live it through, no matter the consequences to her reputation. As every year passes that we see a man pretending to be Vicar of Christ —a man whose public actions are obviously not directed by the Holy Spirit—Barnhardt becomes more and more vindicated in her position. Her’s has been a long game, in which the fullness of time would prove her right.

But what ultimately convinced me this June was the discussion from Dr. Edmund Mazza on both Taylor Marshall’s and Ann Barnhardt’s shows. Mazza lays down the idea that, basically, Pope Benedict XVI, being the tricky academic that he is, tried to bifurcate the papacy in an unconventional manner, so much so that his own “resignation” was incomplete, imperfect, and unclear. In his own mind, Pope Benedict XVI believes he successfully bifurcated the papacy, as he’s claimed at least a few times. But in reality, Pope Benedict’s little academic word-game trick is a total disaster, and instead, as Dr. Mazza explains, Pope Benedict has ceased being The Restrainer of the systemic Antichrist spirit that has unleashed itself upon the world these past seven years.

 

He has a lot more to say. Do go read the whole thing HERE.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.

Our Lady Undoer of Knots, pray for us.

Did somebody say conspiracy theory? Covi-pass comes close. I’m not saying it’s mark-of-the-beast or anything. But there is no earthly reason for this, no scientific justification, no sane explanation.

Putting all your health info on a chip a private company can control? And which you need to “return to work”? What could go wrong?

Arizona bars, gyms, movie theaters, etc all closed down again last night by state mandate. Lawsuits have already been filed this morning. I will have more to write on the hospitalizations and whatnot later.

But the only thing I see people in a panic over is if they spot someone without a chin diaper. That part has gotten really bad. Every business now has signage up at the entrance. You will be accosted if you disobey. More to come on this topic, as well.

Randomly stumbled upon: iPhone turns 13 today

Thirteen years ago today, iPhone was introduced. Feast of SS Peter and Paul. I wonder the prophetic significance of that.

It wasn’t the first smartphone, but it might as well have been. Apple lover or hater, if you were alive when it happened, you know just how revolutionary this was. You don’t even need to be a geek… normal people remember the first time they touched one and interacted with it. I was BlackBerry at the time, and I couldn’t even get my head around how this thing was all touchscreen and one button. What the heck is an app? Oooh, it comes with up to 8GB… wow! The user experience was so far beyond anything on the market, so intuitive and even fun, that you knew instantly that this was going to change everything. The rare marketing slogan that turned out to be an understatement.

Try explaining to someone younger than 20 what life was like before smartphones. Even better, try taking away their smartphone for an hour, and see what happens.

The iPhone was released in the United States on June 29, 2007 at the price of $499 for the 4 GB model and $599 for the 8 GB model, both requiring a 2-year contract.[20] Thousands of people were reported to have waited outside Apple and AT&T retail stores days before the device’s launch;[21] many stores reported stock shortages within an hour of availability. To avoid repeating the problems of the PlayStation 3 launch, which caused burglaries and even a shooting, off-duty police officers were hired to guard stores overnight.[22][23]

I see all of these virtual high school graduations happening. None of today’s graduates has ever lived without a supercomputer in their pocket. Never has the sum of mankind’s knowledge been available so readily, so cheaply, so easily.

Alas, TikTok and porn.

Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.

 

“Antichrist will assume the role of Messiahs; his prophet will act the part of Pope; and there will be imitations of the Sacraments of the Church.”

More breadcrumbs in the combox. There are a number of things to unpack here, but foremost are the quotes from Fr. E. Sylvester Berry, about whom you will be hearing more very shortly. Happy Sunday.


“The chiefs [bishops], the leaders of the people of God have neglected prayer and penance, and the demon has obscured their intelligence; they have become wandering stars which the old devil will drag along with his tail to make them perish. God will allow the old serpent to place divisions among those who reign, in every society and in every family. Physical and moral agonies will be suffered; God will abandon mankind to itself and will send chastisements which will follow one after the other[…]” – excerpt taken from Our Lady of La Salette’s Secret to Mélanie Calvatin in September 19, 1846. In 1879, the full text received the imprimatur of Bishop Salvatore Luigi Zola, C.R.L., the Bishop of Lecce, Italy and Melanie sent a copy to Pope Leo XIII

“That Satan will [must] rule from the Vatican… the pope will be his [servant] slave.”
– St. Maximillian Kolbe heard this from Masons marching in Rome (16 Oct 1917)

“The Papacy will be attacked by all the powers of hell. In consequence the Church will suffer great trials and afflictions in securing a successor upon the throne of Peter… It is a matter of history that the most disastrous periods for the Church were times when the Papal throne was vacant, or when anti-popes contended with the legitimate head of the Church. Thus also shall it be in those evil days to come.” – Rev. E. Sylvester Berry, The Apocalypse of St. John (1921), p. 120-128

“The prophecies of the Apocalypse [book of Revelation] show that Satan will imitate the Church of Christ to deceive mankind; he will set up a church of Satan in opposition to the Church of Christ. Antichrist will assume the role of Messiahs; his prophet will act the part of Pope; and there will be imitations of the Sacraments of the Church. There will also be lying wonders in imitation of the miracles wrought in the Church.” – Rev. E. Sylvester Berry, The Church of Christ: An Apologetic and Dogmatic Treatise (1927), p. 119

14 So the Lord cut off from Israel head and tail,
palm branch and reed in one day—
15 the elder and honored man is the head,
and the prophet who teaches lies is the tail;
16 for those who lead this people lead them astray, and those who are led by them are swallowed up.
– Isaiah 9:14-16 (RSVCE)

In Isaias 9:15-17, the tail is the symbol of lying, hypocrisy and false doctrines. – Rev. Herman Kramer, The Book of Destiny, pdf p. 201 (1955) [NOTE: The tail is also the symbol of error and deceit.]

“The tail of the devil is functioning in the disintegration of the Catholic world. The darkness of Satan has entered and spread throughout the Catholic Church even to its summit. Apostasy, the loss of the faith, is spreading throughout the world and into the highest levels within the Church.” – Pope Paul VI, October 13, 1977 in a formal address marking the 60th Anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun as quoted in the Milan-based daily Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, p. 7 of its issue dated October 14, 1977

“The Message of Fatima is a call to conversion, alerting humanity to have nothing to do with the “dragon” whose “tail swept down a third of the stars of Heaven and cast them to the earth” (Apoc. 12:4). […] In her motherly concern, the Blessed Virgin came here to Fátima to ask men and women “to stop offending God, Our Lord, who is already very offended.” It is a mother’s sorrow that compels her to speak; the destiny of her children is at stake. For this reason she asks the little shepherds: “Pray, pray much and make sacrifices for sinners; many souls go to hell because they have no one to pray and make sacrifices for them.” – Pope John Paul II Homily for the Beatification of Jacinta and Francisco at Fatima on May 13, 2000 [NOTE: “a third of the stars of Heaven” has been traditionally interpreted as fallen clergy; cardinals, bishops and priests who are at the service of Satan]

Anyone think the quotations above are happening now and continuing to enfold with each passing day?

Arizona is the darling of corona panic, and now it’s inside the Phoenix Cathedral

I am not breaking this news, it has been on the internet for hours. One of the priests at the cathedral parish has tested positive. They actually named the priest in an email that went out to parishioners, but I’m not going to print that here. I’m a little surprised they would do that.

His last public Mass was last Sunday at 6pm. The email reads, “His condition has steadily improved, and he has been taking extra precautions in the rectory for everyone’s health and safety.”

So sometime in the last six days, he got sick, got tested, came back positive, and has already “steadily improved?”

The rector, Fr. Lankeit, is urging anyone who attended Masses or came into contact with this priest to closely monitor for symptoms and get tested if warranted. The rector and the bishop have self-quarantined pending results of their tests.

If you’re a regular reader of this space, you know where I stand on this whole ordeal. Still, please join me in a prayer for these men and their parishioners. An act of charity does not go wasted.

CDC finally admits TENS OF MILLIONS of people in the U.S. have already had the corona, never knew it, and LIVED

At least 20,000,000 people, most of whom never knew it. It’s a mild cold virus, in most people. HERE

And if 10x more people have had it then reported, you know what that means? It means the mortality rate is ten times lower than reported. Around 0.005, actually. But even that isn’t right, because almost all who died at the beginning were either purposely murdered by vent, murdered by forced contamination of congregate settings, or otherwise compromised/elderly/nursing homes. Meaning, the death rate moving forward in time with continue much lower.

I’m short on time today, but Denninger has two great write ups on this, including an explanation of why the corona is much more serious in some (very few) people:

How The NIH, Fauci And @RealDonaldTrump Killed Mom

OK, enough of the bull**** (again)

We know at this point Covid-19 is a bi-phasic disease.  That is, in most people it presents either asymptomatic or with mild to moderate flu-like symptoms.  That’s what the vast majority of people experience, including a very significant percentage of people at “high risk.”

Indeed even the CDC is now admitting that ten times the number of people that have “tested positive” have actually had Covid-19.  This, of course, means the death rate is 1/10th that reported.  I pointed this out — that the data we had was only supportable as valid if there was a monstrous number of people who were “silently” infected in March.

In some small percentage of the people infected they may or may not get that set of symptomology but irrespective of that they also get a far more-serious set.  These are the people who wind up the ICU and die.  We know what the co-morbidities are that greatly increase the risk of that happening — in some cases by a factor of 10 or more.  But there is no guarantee for anyone that they won’t get the more-serious set of conditions.

The NIH explicitly recommends against screening for two markers (sequentially, if necessary) that we know, through clinical experience and have known since March, are markers for the more-serious form of the disease when someone originally presents to a medical facility.  The cost of such a screening test is about $20.

Further, there are exactly zero circumstances under which a high reading on that first test is not indicative of a serious problem of some sort in the human body.  D-dimer, the test in question, is a byproduct of blood clotting; if it is elevated there is abnormal clotting activity going on somewhere; it does not tell you where, but it does tell you what.

One potential cause of the first test being abnormal is cardiac clotting.  That’s very bad for obvious reasons, and ruling it out costs about an additional $10-12 to test troponin level, which is a cardiac enzyme indicating distress in the heart muscle.  (If that one’s positive, by the way, you’re probably being admitted to the hospital, but not for Covid — for a serious heart problem!)…

More pesky facts:

The Nasty On Coronavirus: Quick Hit

Presume the following, all of which are facts:

1. CDC says we have 10x as many people who have had Coronavirus as were tested (e.g. for every symptomatic tested we have 10 who never were and are either asymptomatic or think it’s something else — they sneeze, etc)  By the way, they really do say this — that’s not conjecture on my part.

2. We know there is material cross-immunity.  We knew this in February (Diamond Princess)

3. NY has recorded 390,000 positives.  Multiply by 10, that’s 3.9 million people.  This is almost-exactly 20% of the population.

4. If 50%, more or less, have cross-immunity the remaining susceptible population is approximately 30%.

HERD SUPPRESSION IS 66%, MORE OR LESS, FOR AN R0 OF 3.0.

This is why you can loot, burn and riot in NY, with zero social distancing, and nothing happens.  There should have been tens of thousands of primary infections from that event and over 100,000 secondary infections before the primary infected persons got sick enough to seek treatment in NY.  The facts are that this didn’t happen…

Sobering Assessment of the State of the Union and the World

From the combox:


 JTLiuzza says: Edit

We’ve embraced no fault divorce, contraception, legalized abortion, not only decriminalized sodomy but use it to defile and mock the Sacrament of Matrimony, we’ve legalized abortion and have murdered tens of millions of unborn children, our latest is instituting federal protections for perversions, we have established as norm a culture of immodesty and slovenliness in dress and behavior, pornography is everywhere, our schools have banished prayer and instead indoctrinate our children with perversion… I could go on. God doesn’t intervene to save a people like that. He burns them down, or rather withdraws grace and allows them to destroy themselves under the weight of their many many grave sins (real sins not the “racism” baloney).

The fault lies with the Church militant. She has failed miserably in her duty. The errors of Russia have spread globally. Like an aggressive cancer they inhabit every nook and cranny of the host. The bloodthirsty marxists are so excited about the impending bloodbath and tyranny that they can’t contain themselves.

Heaven saw this coming and our Lord sent His Mother to instruct us in what we needed to do to avert all this. The Church ignored her. Divine intervention is what we want? I think the Lord might say in response (if I can be so bold), “I already intervened; at Fatima. I sent My Mother with My instructions, and promised Russia’s conversion and a peace upon the whole world. You ignored her, thereby ignoring Me.”

From Roberto de Mattei (I apologize if my comment goes long):

“When Vatican II opened in October 1962, Catholics from all over the world were waiting for the disclosing of the Third Secret and the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate heart of Mary.

“What better occasion for John XXIII ( died 3rd June 1963), Paul VI and with circa 3000 bishops gathered around them, in the very heart of Christendom, to meet Our Lady’s requests in a solemn and unanimous way? On February 3rd 1964, Monsignor Geraldo de Proença Sigaud, personally delivered to Paul VI, a petition signed by 510 prelates from 78 countries, which implored the Pontiff, in union with all the bishops, to consecrate the world and in an explicit manner, Russia, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Pope and most of the Council Fathers ignored the appeal.

“If the Consecration request had been done, great graces would have poured down on humanity. A movement of a return to the natural and Christian law would have begun. Communism would have fallen many years earlier, in an non-fictitious way, but authentic and real. Russia would have converted and the world would have experienced an age of peace and order. Our Lady had promised this.

“The failed consecration allowed Russia to continue spreading its errors throughout the world and these errors conquered the highest ranks of the Church, inviting a terrible chastisement for all of humanity. Paul VI and the majority of the Council Fathers assumed a historical responsibility for which today we gauge the consequences.”
http://www.robertodemattei.it/en/2017/08/03/the-second-vatican-council-and-the-message-of-fatima/

He is absolutely right. Subsequent Popes as well.

In addition (and I won’t cut and paste anymore) on the ordo dei blog a story related about a certain Father Robert I. Bradley, S.J., who was at the council. After the council had closed, Paul VI, addressing the assembled bishops, proposed to restore an older title of our Blessed Mother and address her as “Mater Ecclesiae” (Mother of the Church). Father Bradley reported that the response was an audible hiss. A hiss! Delivered in response to such a worthy proposal to honor our Mother and our Queen, by bishops of all people and in St. Peter’s! The thought of that will disturb me for the rest of my life.

Now like all good Italian sons I think my mother is a saint (but still pray for her in case she’s still in purgatory which is my duty in general but to her in particular under the 4th commandment). And if my mother were treated thus by people who should know better, I’d probably be moved to a fury. And I am nothing. The Lord’s mother IS a saint, Queen of the saints in fact. And Her Son is Everything, where I am nothing. Imagine His reaction to His Mother being hissed by His bishops in His basilica! I wouldn’t want to be in their loafers.

Now why would they do such a thing? No supernatural faith in my opinion. And because such a title might get in the way of the almighty “ecumenism.” So let’s appease protestant heretics and followers of heathen religions who are indifferent to the Mother of God at best and outright hate her at worst. Her Son will understand, right? Insanity.

Abp. Vigano is right: this is a supernatural battle. And no way anything in the world gets cleaned up until the Church first gets straightened out. And with the mad Argentine running around, an episcopacy filled with effeminates, modernists, and various and sundry poofs; that doesn’t look to be imminent.

Ignore Our Lady of Fatima, hiss Our Lady Mater Ecclesiae, and now the Church and the world are reaping it.

Barnhardt Podcast #115: Forewarned is Forearmed

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode, Mark and Ann are again joined by Dr. Edmund Mazza, further exploring his thesis that the words and actions of Pope Benedict suggest he has separated the functional aspects of the papacy from the ontological essence of the papacy, having himself retained the latter. In delegating the governance function/active role/ministry, it appears Benedict may have done so by attempting to separate the See of Rome from the Primacy itself. New evidence continues to be unearthed, some of it going back hundreds of years, supporting at least the conceptual validity of this. Will examine the resignation of Peter Celestine, the thoughts of Cardinal Manning, that the idea of splitting off the Roman See from the Primacy is NOT a heretical idea, the laity of Nestorius’ diocese publicly condemning their own bishop (Nestorius) in writing. Bergoglio “lamenting” that he might be the one who goes down in history as schisming the Church… something quite impossible if he were the true Pope. Bergoglio’s snarking remark about prelates who only halfway resign.The historical German significance of Benedict’s choice of “resignation” day. Carl Schmidt and the State of Exception: The sovereign has the authority to suspend the law. 2 Thess 2, “the restrainer” and the “man of sin,” the KATECHON… the restrainer is both a person and a system.

Vocabulary word of the podcast: KATECHON:

Not only a person but a system, the WHO and the WHAT that are restraining the antichrist (Joseph Ratzinger, Called to Communion, (Ignatius Press, 1996) 47; 55. Cardinal Manning, The Present Crisis of the Holy See: A Warning About Antichrist).

In case you haven’t heard, Dr. Edmund Mazza is the new superstar in the research field regarding the identity of the one true Pope of the One True Church. The information he has unearthed in the past few months will no doubt be critical evidence when the time comes for this whole thing to be juridically settled. Just completed third Mazzacast episode of the Barnhardt podcast, to be posted shortly. More great stuff.

Dr. Mazza needs your help. He lost is teaching position over the fact that he is Catholic. He has expenses mounting.

It’s All Politics

Coronadoom is now entirely political.

Unfortunately, the only way to overcome bad politics is with the thing that shall not be mentioned, or good politics.

Update More proof of political bullshit: Oregon county issues face mask order that exempts non-white people.

Push back against the lies, distortions, and absolute bullshit. They are losing control too soon before the election, they don’t like it, and they’re scrambling.

It is bullshit. Every approved flak, academic, and pol said screw social distancing if rioting, looting, and mayhem was your goal, just as these same bottom feeders said social distance was a must if attending a Trump rally. Or in opening businesses by other than skateboard through the window.

Our enemies want you to forget the headlines above (we had several last week, too). They are hoping you are stupid enough to believe what they tell you because they are in charge.

Look out your window. It is clear we are living in a time when those above us are the dumbest of any leaders in all of history. Want more proof?

In shift, Florida Keys now requiring face masks until June 2021

“Visitors to the Florida Keys will need to bring along face masks or face a $500 civil fine.” This is done purely to humiliate you and show you who’s boss. Ignore the order. Depose the government.

Need more?

They changed the headline on this story, which I should have screenshot. It was originally “WHO chief warns coronavirus pandemic accelerating“. It’s now something about Brazil, but you can see the original in the URL.

“‘We are in a new and dangerous phase,’ Tedros said at a news conference in Geneva Friday, and he warned that lockdown measures are still needed to halt the virus’ spread.”

This is bullshit. This is an outright lie, pure power politics.

I’ve been telling us for months (yes, months) that the only number that we can really trust is the all-cause weekly deaths. Everything else can be, and is, fudged, especially in the media.

We’re not the only ones who are noticing. Axios: U.S. Coronavirus Cases Are Increasing, But Deaths Aren’t — Yet. Key sentence “‘The death rate always lags several weeks behind the infection rate,’ top infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci told me.”

Fraudci! No handshakes forever Faudci! Ignore him.

They’re also pushing “hospitalizations.” After lockdowns eased, people started to go to the doc for complaints they’ve been waiting on. They get tested. Lo, coronavirus is found. And the cancer patient (or whatever) is now listed as a coronavirus hospitalization.

Spikes!

All Cause Deaths

This is the per capita all-cause weekly deaths. As usual, the last two weeks are under-reported. It can take up to eight weeks, the CDC says, for the full report, but two is more usual. There is no sense in this data that it’s anything but getting better.

Here’s the blowup (actual numbers, not per capita).

The dashed line is the all-cause minus official COVID deaths. Even accounting for late reporting, it is clear this crisis is over. Finished. Kaput. Done. Finis.

Everything the media and politicians are pushing is hype, meant now only to control, to manipulate. Do not submit.

USA! USA! USA!

That’s the official CDC weekly COVID deaths, up through 19 June, the latest numbers available. These numbers are likely exaggerated, as we saw from the all-cause deaths above. But there is still no sense whatsoever that it’s getting worse.

Here are the reported — i.e. MEDIA — numbers. They are not the same as the CDC numbers. They are higher, by at least 10% everywhere. The media has been using higher numbers all along, and they continue to do so. They cannot be trusted.

Ignore the model if you’re a skeptic; it clearly is pulled down too much by the huge spike in the middle. Doesn’t matter. Point is, even the media numbers are down and heading further south.

I left all the other material out, like in how infections are about 70 million, and testing is turning up old cases. I wanted to this to be succinct as possible. Every time you hear somebody pushing fear, show them the plots above.

Update

Finally other people are making official what we’ve been telling you for the last eight weeks:

Here it is, what I left off, the estimated infections/cases, and reported cases (in black).
