Still Preparing The Way For Antichrist
by Thomas A. Droleskey
Tensions are heating up in the Korea Peninsula. Delegates from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics--oh, excuse, Vladimir Putin's never-ending land of liberty and justice for all, the Russian Federated States) and Red China at the United Masonic Nations Organization have attempted to equate the response of the government of the Republic of Korea (South Korea) to the unprovoked torpedo attack on its warship Cheonan on March 26, 2010, and the shelling of its island of
Yeonpyeong on November 23, 2010, by the forces of the so-called "People's Democratic Republic" of Korea (North Korea) with the aggression of the latter country by calling upon both nations to "exercise maximum restraint." All the the South Korea government is doing at this time is to plan a live-fire military exercise on the island of Yeonpyeong, on which four people were were killed (forty-six South Korea sailors were killed aboard the Cheonan nearly nine months ago now). The murderous thugs who exercise an iron tyranny over the people of North Korea, where unbridled Stalinism is alive and well, have said that a "catastrophe" would occur if South Korea forces proceeded with their live-fire drill. (South Korea Plans Artillery Drill as Tensions Rise.)
Gee, I thought former President James Earl Carter, Jr., ever the appeaser, settled all of back in 1994 when he visited his pals in North Korea during the administration then President William Jefferson Blythe Clinton, whose first Secretary of State, Warren Christopher, a warhorse of Democratic Party presidential administrations (having served as the late President Lyndon Baines Johnson's Deputy Attorney General under then Attorney General--and all around Communist appeaser in his own right--Ramsey Clark and as Deputy Secretary of State in Carter's administration under one of his fellow "junior varsity" cronies from the Johnson administration, the late Cyrus Vance). Carter, who was dissatisfied with a briefing he had been given at the State Department by middle-level officials, said, sanctimoniously, of course:
"You haven't told me what Kim Il Sung wants," Carter told his briefers. "What he wants is my respect. And I am going to give it to him." (The story behind Carter's North Korean trip.)
Jimmy Carter certainly gave his "respect" to the murderous tyrant, the now quite deceased Kim Il Sung, traveling to North Korea to convince the peace-loving, jolly dictators of North Korea to develop nuclear power for peaceful means. Carter assured us even recently that the North Korea shelling of the South Korean island of Yeonpyeong was simply a craving for world's governments to send it necessary food and medical supplies that this thoroughly corrupt regime has been unable to supply for its own people from the bounteous joys of sixty years of Communist thuggery. Then again, of course, James Earl Carter, Jr., never met a Communist dictator he didn't embrace with open arms. It was Carter who said at the University of Notre Dame on May 22, 1977, that
"we are now free of that inordinate fear of communism." Yes, Jimmy Carter certainly "solved" that North Korean problem, didn't he?
It turns out, though, that Carter has has been as wrong about North Korea as he was about the "good intentions" of then Soviet dictator Leonid Brezhnev during the summit meeting in Vienna, Austria, in June of 1979 when the two signed the Strategic Arms Limitations Treaty II (SALT II), a treaty that was never ratified by the United States Senate, principally because it was just six months after that meeting between the naive named Jimmy Carter and the old Stalinist apostle named Brezhnev that the latter ordered his military forces to begin a full-scale invasion of Afghanistan. What was that Carter said on May 22, 1977, that "we are now free of that inordinate fear of communism"?
Go tell that to the people of North Korea. Go tell that to the people of Red China. Go tell that to the people of Cuba. Go tell that to the people of Vietnam. Go tell that to the people of Laos. Go tell that who suffered in the past under Communist regimes in German Democratic Republic (East Germany) or Poland or Hungary or the former Czechoslovakia or Yugoslavia or Romania or the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics itself. That Jimmy Carter can remain a credible spokesman on the world stage, a man who is taken seriously by the likes of Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, is a scandal as it turns out that North Korea, aided and abetted by those peace-loving, folksy chaps in Beijing (Peking), is much further along with its nuclear program than is the Islamic Republic of Iran (see
Part 1 and Part 2 of a recent interview that run in the Wall Street Journal online.)
Would the North Koreans use nuclear weapons if they possessed them? Could this be the catastrophe that the saber-rattling, murderous thugs who enslave the people of North Korea is threatening to unleash if the military forces of South Korea proceed with the live-fire exercised on the island of Yeonpyeong? Have the usually dense leaders of North Korea concluded that they could get away with a limited nuclear strike without suffering a retaliation from the United States of America that might trigger military reprisals on our own country from Red China and Russia?
It is unlikely that the North Koreans, who are very good at saber-rattling, will use nuclear weapons at this time, assuming, that is, that they possess them at all right now. The escalating tensions in the Korean Peninsula however, do demonstrate that there any number of possible conflagrations that could break out around the world to serve as chastisements upon "developed" nations that differ only in degrees from the kind of thuggery that exists in overtly dictatorial, totalitarian states such as North Korea and Red China and Cuba and Laos and Vietnam.
Although some readers get tired of being reminded of this fact, I will never cease reminding the few people who remain as readers of this site that nations that kill the innocent preborn, whether by chemical or surgical means, will never be secure from threats leveled against them from other states and/or from terror cells. Over fifty million innocent babies have been killed in the United States of America alone since 1965, eight years before the decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, January 22, 1973.
Nations that promote what are called sloganistically as "alternative lifestyles" under the monikers of "equality" or "civil rights" or "diversity" or "tolerance" or "compassion" will suffer fates similar to those suffered by the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Nations that are built upon the delusional belief that their
greatness lies in material prosperity and boundless license of human speech and action (speech and action, of course, that are approved by our statist jailers) will see themselves collapse from within as predators from without take them apart at the seams.
We are indeed living in a time of great chastisement as the lords of Modernity and the lords of Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism play their own respective roles in preparing the way for the coming of Antichrist, he who does and speak the opposite of Christ the King.
How can Catholics in a developed nation such as the United States of America oppose political leaders who support chemical and surgical baby-killing when the man whom most of them think is a true and legitimate Successor of Saint Peter, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, wishes a
"blessing" on Barack Hussein Obama and "all his work?
How can Catholics teach their their young boys to be modest and not to go around bare-chested in public at any time when the "pope" gawks and stands up to express his admiration for a strip act masquerading as an "acrobatic" performance right in the Paul VI Audience Hall?
How can Catholics teach their children that perversity is one of the four sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance when the "pope" welcomes men who have been performers in a so-called "gay circus," which exists to mainstream public acceptance of the lavender agenda, including "marriage" between persons of the same gender who are engaged in acts of unnatural vice in violation of the Sixth and Ninth Commandments?
How can Catholics in public life who have some understanding, however attenuated, that a persistence in perverse behavior is not a legitimate means of human self-identification be expected to vote against permitting those who have such "love" for their "partners" in perversity to serve openly in the military forces of their country when the "pope" has indemnified serial abusers of children repeatedly, refusing to discipline those "bishops" who have protected such criminals, refusing to acknowledge that he did so when he was the conciliar "archbishop" of Cologne, Germany, in January of 1980? (See
"Fall Guys" Aren't Usually "Stand-Up Guys".)
As bad as these things are, of course, we must remember that crimes against God are more evil in the hierarchy of evils than crimes against men, and it is the crimes against God and His greater honor and glory and majesty that have been committed by the conciliar "popes" and their "bishops" that have made it more possible for the lords of Modernity, precursors of Antichrist in their own naturalist right, to have their way with us to such an extent that petty little bureaucrats from the Federal Reserve System could threaten a bank's office with being reported to the United States Department of Justice for displaying Christian symbolism and as the bank's employees offer customers a "Merry Christmas" instead of the now almost universal "Happy Holidays" (see After National Outcry, Fed Reverses Anti-Christian Bank Decision).
Who cares if the "pope" has blasphemed God publicly, praising false religions and hailing their places of false worship as "sacred."
Who cares if the "pope" has not said a word of criticism about "Archbishop" Robert Zollitsch's having denied in a publicly televised interview that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ died in atonement for our sins?
Who cares if the "pope" has rejected publicly the "ecumenism of the return" that was the foundation of Catholic missionary work with Protestants and Orthodox and all other schismatics and heretics prior to the dawning of the age of conciliarism?
Who cares if the "pope" has reaffirmed Jews in their false religion, making it appear as though that there is no necessity for them to convert to the true Faith before they die, that their eternal salvation is guaranteed, that they have, in effect, their own means of salvation that is parallel to that found in the Catholic Church?
Who cares if the "pope" has praised the World Missionary Conference that took place in Edinburgh, Scotland, one hundred years ago now that gave birth to the sort of ecumenism that was condemned by Pope Pius XI in Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928?
Who cares if the "pope" has sold out the long-suffering underground Catholics in Red China despite Vatican protestations about their continued mistreatment there.
Summorum Pontificum has changed everything, right? That's why the "pope" must be defended even though many of his "bishops" are not even permitting an occasion offering or simulation of the modernized version of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition. What? Admit that one's fondest expectations of a man who has been at war with Catholic doctrine throughout the course of his priestly life as a disciple of the "new theology" that was condemned by Pope Pius XII in Humani Generis, August 12, 1950, have been delusional? Never. And this is how the devil is using the false opposites (the ultra-progressive revolutionaries and the more "moderate" revolutionaries) in the counterfeit church of conciliarism to purchase consent by silence and acquiescence to outrages that offend God and harm souls.
The way is indeed being prepared for the coming of Antichrist. How are people going to recognize and denounce Antichrist if they cannot see his prefiguring in the persons of the enemies of Christ the King in the world-at-large and in the counterfeit church of concilairism today.
We must pray to Saint John the Baptist, who prepared the way for Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to commence His Public Ministry, to help us to persevere no matter the difficulties in our doing so, including the loss of friends, respect, prestige, and even income and career security. We can never compromise the truths of the Holy Faith for any alleged "strategy" that requires Catholics to suspend rationality and to be silent in the face of crimes against God and man that need a public reproof.
Saint John the Baptist leapt for joy in the womb of his mother, Saint Elizabeth, when he heard the sound of his own kinswoman, she who is the Mother of God, speak as the One Whose precursor he was meant to be reposed in her Virginal and Immaculate Womb prior to His Nativity in Bethlehem. Saint John the Baptist was no respecter of persons. He spoke truth to power. King Herod knew that Saint John the Baptist was correct to criticize him for having entering into a bigamous and adulterous "marriage" with his brother Philip's wife, Herodias. He was too weak to change. He wanted to please Herodias and the daughter for whom he had an illicit eye, Salome, to whom he promised he would give half of his kingdom after she had performed a salacious dance. Prodded by her mother, Salome demanded the head of Saint John the Baptist. Herod kept his promise:
At the time Herod the Tetrarch heard the fame of Jesus.  And he said to his servants: This is John the Baptist: he is risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works shew forth themselves in him.  For Herod had apprehended John and bound him, and put him into prison, because of Herodias, his brother's wife.  For John said to him: It is not lawful for thee to have her.  And having a mind to put him to death, he feared the people: because they esteemed him as a prophet.
 But on Herod's birthday, the daughter of Herodias danced before them: and pleased Herod.  Whereupon he promised with an oath, to give her whatsoever she would ask of him.  But she being instructed before by her mother, said: Give me here in a dish the head of John the Baptist.  And the king was struck sad: yet because of his oath, and for them that sat with him at table, he commanded it to be given.  And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.
Why are we so fearful of what others will think of us for standing up in defense of the truth? Why?
Although those of us who have seen the true state of the Church are absolutely no better than anyone else who may not see things clearly right now or who persists in adamantly rejecting even the possibility that the conciliar authorities are not true representatives of the Catholic Church on earth, it is nevertheless true that we must never let the fear of human respect get the better of us and play it "safe" as it is never "safe" to follow the devil's minions in a false church.
May Saint John the Baptist help to prepare the way for the coming of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ this coming Christmas Day, just five days from now, and also into our hearts and souls every day of our lives by means of our worthy reception of Holy Communion (if this is at all possible where you live) and by helping us to cooperate more fully with all of the other graces sent to by Our Lord through the loving hands of His Most Blessed Mother, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces.
Remember, we have nothing to fear from the lords of Modernity or the lords of Modernism. Each is being used by God Himself just as much as Caesar Augustus was used to issue the census decree that caused Our Lady and her Most Chaste Spouse, our Good Saint Joseph, to travel the seventy-seven miles between Nazareth and Bethlehem. We have nothing to fear from the communist tyrants of Red China or North Korea or Russia or from their like-minded naturalists here in the "civilized" West. As I noted two days ago in part four of May We Made As Simple and Trusting, we must really rest securely in peace in the crossing of Our Lady's arms and in the folds of her mantles. Why do we fear so?
Every Rosary we pray helps us poor sinners, who are in need of making frequent use of the Sacred Tribunal of Penance, to make reparation for our sins and to build up the Church Militant on earth for the day when a true pope will indeed fulfill Our Lady's Fatima Message, thus ushering in the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon.
Viva Cristo Rey! Vivat Christus Rex!
