Tonight and Tomorrow - Radio
Tune in and stay tuned!
We were talking about the bona fides of the late Father Malachi Martin a week or so ago, and I came across a potent testimony in his favour, from a personal friend of Father Martin, Christopher Story:
"Since some have expressed
interest in the Author's opinion as to whether Malachi was a True Christian or not, the
Author can say with certainty that he loved the Lord Jesus Christ." (The New Underworld Order, P359)
The whole book is a remarkable work which can be read on line here:
marxism is a specific dialectical materialism usually atheist officially and if not so atheist in lifestyle and a hegelian view of history as god, an all powerful force on the march through time with a goal and directing things to that goal via conflict.
you don't need any such nonsense to see and act about existing problems, and land redistribution when that land's power is being abused to harm the people whose ancestors it was taken from is hardly an evil thing in itself.
God repeatedly warned us that no one OWNS the land (or anything else) but we are all sojourners (translate: transients, bums, squatters) from His perspective.
You pretend to be this sweet individual, just doing her thing, when in reality you are a change agent come to this blog to get followers for the Marxist leaders.
Don't bother with your doubletalk. You can fool Constance, but you can't fool everyone.
And take note of some curses God put on people who are too acquisitive, its in The Prophets.
someone once said that cults are the unpaid bills of the church. And one of the reasons Kennedy got killed was because he said in some speech that we should get in there and support legitimate freedom seeking people in dictatorships, before the communists could exploit their problems. Of course major elements in our govt. have always preferred to deal with dictators.
If it's Marxist to support land ownership for the many rather than the few then God is a Marxist - his system for ancient Israel in Mosaic Law was that every family would own its own land in perpetuity.
"People who claim to own the land have done more for the downtrodden as you call them than any of the New Age Marxists have done."
Utter nonsense. The medieval Catholic aristocracy lived high on the rent from peasants who were so desperately poor that they often starved. The protestant landowners of Britain forced the highland clearances of Scotland and the Irish famine of the mid-19th century.
I am not, of course, advocating genocide of landlords in analogy with the massacre of the disgusting Canaanites, which made the Mosaic system possible. But laws should encourage wide ownership of land and, sice the industrial revolution, of the means of production.
It is not surprising that creatures like Leonardo Boff, one of the best known supporters of the early Liberation Theologians, would be already poisoning the well of Pope Francis' papacy by making statements that seem to portray Pope Francis as sympathetic to Liberation Theology.
I suspect it might be an attempt on the part of Boff and his Marxist-oriented confreres to disguise the way in which their fellow "progressives" tried to use Cardinal Bergoglio in order to block the election of Cardinal Ratzinger to the papacy? They did this by atttempting to make Cardinal Bergoglio the "Ross Perot" of the 2005 Conclave!!!
After being silenced - again - in 1992 by the Vatican, this time to prevent him from participating in the Eco-9 Earth-Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Boff finally left the Franciscan religious order and the priestly ministry. But this doesn't stop Boff from continuing to offer commentaries as if he were still a priest in good standing.
Liberation Theology - for those who do not understand what it is - was the Marxist attempt to hijack Christianity, empty it of its traditional meaning and give it a new Marxist meaning. When all is said and done however, Liberation Theology has as little to do with "liberation" as it has to do with "theology." It is nothing more than Marxism tricked out in "Christian" wraps according to the infiltration strategy cooked up by Italian communist Antonio Gramsci.
Additionally, as the late great C.S. Lewis would have agreed, it was precisely the good that Liberation Theology contained and/or imitated that made it potent as well as dangerous.
When Pope Francis was a Jesuit provincial in Argentina, he strictly prohibited the Jesuits under his authority from peddling Liberation Theology. Instead, Father Bergoglio insisted on a Jesuit adherence to the traditional reading of Ignatian spirituality, which mandated that Jesuits continue to staff parishes and act as chaplains rather than as "politicking priests" / "social workers" and moving into "base communities" whose "religion" was more redolent of political activism - including violence - than it was of the Christian worship of God.
After his term as Jesuit provincial in Argentina, Father Bergoglio was persecuted by his theologically and politically left-leaning Jesuit brethren, who "evened up the score" by exiling him to northern Argentina where he taught high-school chemistry until he was rescued by John Paul II and elevated to the rank of archbishop of Buenos Aires.
Check out the following article.
Weigel: Progressives “Used” Bergoglio in 2005 Conclave
Thursday, March 14, 2013
When Pope Francis was Cardinal Bergoglio, he was a bulwark against the spread of Liberation Theology in Argentina at the same time he made it his special personal mission to care for the poor among his flock without making them "toe any party line."

Subject: LIST OF TRAITORS
Over the weekend, we came four votes away from the United States Senate giving our Constitutional rights over to the United Nations. In a 53-46 vote, the senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.
The Statement of Purpose from the bill read:
To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.
The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S., and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry on all private guns and ammo.
Astonishingly, 46 of our United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power.
Here are the 46 senators that voted to give your rights to the U.N.
Hello All, here is the list of all the TRAITORS in the U. S. Senate- Thank God there was none listed for OK, AR, TX
People this needs to go viral. These Senators voted to let the UN take our guns. They need to lose the election. We have been betrayed.
46 Senators Voted to Give your 2nd Amendment Constitutional Rights to the U.N.
The only thing necessary for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing
It's pretty clear Constance stopped doing serious research on the New Age movement maybe eight to ten years ago. All of her old research is still very valid and is new to many people
Let's be honest Christine. You are free filler that allows her to keep her name in as someone seriously interested in the topic. In general your information is junk and most of us know it. Constance never has commented on any of it, pro or con. Unfortunately those checking in here might think that all New Age researchers are goofballs like you. Constance is destroying her reputation but she doesn't realize it.
I, like many others, keep coming by hoping some of the older researchers show up.
Thank you for your response on Boff and Liberation Theology. That answers any questions I had about that. That was a good article you left the link for.
I am very happy that you found the article helpful. Sorry the actual link got chopped off. Here is the link again in its entirety, but as you probably figured out for yourself, the First Things article can be accessed by entering the title of the article into your browser.
I would just like to add here that what many people are not aware of is that Jesuits, who take vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, in addition to a special vow of loyalty to the Pope, do not ordinarily serve the Catholic Church as bishops. If Father Beregoglio did so, it would have been strictly out of obedience to Pope John Paul II.
Now that former Jesuit provincial Father Bergoglio who became Archbishop Bergoglio, and then Cardinal Bergoglio is Pope Francis, it will be very interesting to see all the "carefully nuanced" weasel-wording of Liberation Theology and other dissenting themes on the part of certain "progressives" in the Catholic Church who may now be collectively< shaking in their shoes waiting for the hammer to drop.......especially now that Pope Francis has reaffirmed the critique and the program of reform of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) whose latest keynote speaker Sr. Laurie Brink spoke of "moving beyond Jesus" in her most "carefully nuanced" Teilhardian twaddle.
Pope Francis reaffirms the CDF’s assessment of the LCWR

Then there is this humorous gem of an article from conservative "Da Tech Guy" blog. Be sure to click onto the hyperlinks.
Pope Francis Outs himself as Catholic: LCWR Hardest Hit
by Datechguy | April 21st, 2013
One more thing....The liberal/progressive National Catholic Reporter - cited in the article - is not to be confused with the National Catholic Register which is a service of EWTN (Eternal Word Television Network) and a reliable Catholic news source - as is the Catholic World Report.
Maybe under "life in general, sometimes humorous, sometimes not."
A more important question for you to answer honestly is why you no longer the New Age movement important and are willing to throw 30 years of research, yours and others, down the drain. You are obviously doing this.
It's not that you are too busy, told old, too ill, too tired out. You were all of those things in the first 20 years and yet your seriousness about the issue was there. Now it's obvious you no longer care about your research and the research of others.
If you think Christine is a complex person, someone worth throwing away the blog for, then perhaps you shouldn't be tackling something as serious as the New Age movement any more. Your personal relationship with Christine is not everyone's concern. As a public blog, this is.
Why not stop pretending. Just skip the heading, delete the history of the blog and move on to esoteric discussions of Christianity under Christine's guidance with occasional distorted commentary about other religions.
Put your last quotation in the heading of the blog. Then start by writing what you mean by "My Bible gave a profile of the way we should walk in these ways which as that done by the godly King Josiah: NEITHER TO THE RIGHT HAND NOR TO THE LEFT, BUT STRICTLY IN THE PATHS OF THE LORD." Please describe, as a lawyer would, what you mean by the terms "right hand" and "to the left" and what you mean by "strictly in the paths of the Lord." At least the blog will be relevant. You do it Constance and do not let Christine do it for you.
Something is going on and you are no longer honest with your followers.
While I agree with what you say about this blog's distortion by one individual, it is Constance's blog and we have to put up with her decisions. I fear that you let your frustration run away with you when you wrote that Constance is "no longer honest with [her] followers". I do not agree - in what way?
Constance positioned herself to be the leader of those who exposed the New Age movement. It worked. To junk it all with weak excuses is not happening by chance. She is far too intelligent for it to be happening that way. Is that how good Christians are supposed to act toward their fellowman? I don't think so.
Thank you for sharing the link from Global Governance.
There are some very interesting news stories on politics going on all around the world there; especially with the UN and European Union.
An alternative explanation is that Constance is simply too kind-hearted to throw Christine off. How would you distinguish between your view and that possibility?
"Constance positioned herself to be the leader of those who exposed the New Age movement."
Did she? I thought she simply did a lot of good research. Where did she claim leadership?
There is no doubt that Constance did excellent research for many years. As for your question about that, you may not know the answer, but Constance does.
I think that most people here regard Christine as part of the noise component in this blog's signal-to-noise ratio - she is not taken seriously. You and I might throw her off our blogs but we are not Constance and I am sorry that you impute malign motives to Constance without decisive evidence.
Boogie Woogie Twins / Dr. John - YouTube
a really good overview totally in accord with Constance's writings, but the sort of thing the complainer here likes to complain as disinformation, but is never willing to present his or her view of what is good information.
an interesting example is his or her denunciation of the list of democrats who voted for the small arms treaty as traitors and to my explanation.
The fact is, that many who oppose the New World Order (which is the political goal of the NAM) and worry about Christians getting "cleansed" from the earth, fear disarming individuals as leaving us defenseless against such a move.
are you sure when you got that TCM that it didn't incl. some laying on of hands and manipulating your energy fields maybe some reiki to boot? this could have confused your judgement. Ever get a peaceful blurry feeling as part of your freedom from depression?
a lot of stuff, some good some dubious, the site archives all kinds of things.
This particular link incl. some of the tiresome blaming of everything on zionists, but for the most part the information on history and connections looks good.
this will give you a bunch of videos on the Lisbon Treaty, since the Lisbon Treaty videos on the site have been deleted.
Breaks into Obama's Cabinet
By Greg Palast
Thursday, 2. May 2013
You made fun of me when I suggested that President Barack Obama would nominate a confessed bank scammer, a loan-sharking mortgage predator, to his cabinet. But thar she blows!
Today, Obama has named Penny Pritzker Secretary of Commerce. ...
We never heard of this guy Barack Obama until 2004. Less than three years before taking the presidency, he was in the Illinois state senate, a swamp of scammers, backhanders, and party machine tools - not a stellar launch pad for the White House. And then, one day, state Sen. Barack Obama was visited by his fairy godmother. Her name is Penny Pritzker.
Pritzker's net worth is listed in Forbes as $1.8 billion, which is one hell of a heavy magic wand in the world of politics. Her wand would have been heavier, and her net worth higher, except that in 2001, the federal government fined her and her family $460 million for the predatory, deceitful, racist tactics and practices of Superior, the bank-and-loan-shark operation she ran on the South Side of Chicago.
Superior was the first of the deregulated go-go banks to go bust - at the time, the costliest failure ever. US taxpayers lost nearly half a billion dollars. Superior's depositors lost millions and poor folk in Sen. Obama's South Side district lost their homes.
Penny did not like paying $460 million. No, not one bit. What she needed was someone to give her Hope and Change. She hoped someone would change the banking regulators and the Commerce Department so she could get away with this crap.
Pritzker introduced Obama, the neophyte state senator, to the Ladies Who Lunch (that's really what they call themselves) on Chicago's Gold Coast. Obama got lunch, gold and better - an introduction to Robert Rubin. Rubin is a former Secretary of the Treasury, former chairman of Goldman Sachs and former co-chairman of Citibank. Even atheists recognized Rubin as the Supreme Deity of Wall Street.
Rubin opened the doors to finance industry vaults for Obama. Extraordinarily for a Democrat, Obama in 2008 raised three times as much from bankers as his Republican opponent.
So what did Citibank's Rubin get for showering Obama with gold? Obama agreed to take care of Rubin's poodles, Larry Summers and Tim Geithner. They became Obama's first cabinet picks: Summers as Economics Czar and Geithner as his czarina, Secretary of the Treasury.
Geithner and Summers were the gents who, under Treasury Secretary Rubin, designed the deregulation of banking. In effect, they had decriminalized the kind of financial flim-flammery that brought the planet to its knees while bringing Rubin, Pritzker and the banksters loads of lucre.
So, in 2008, Summers and Geithner were put back in the saddle - Obama's horse but Rubin's saddle.
Rubin received more than $100 million from Citigroup, the gargantuan commercial bank/investment bank/casino created by deregulation. It is worth a mention that Rubin's centi-million-dollar payoff went unchallenged by Citi's new owner, the US Treasury, which had put up more than a trillion dollars in loans and guarantees to pull Rubin's creature out of bankruptcy.
Rubin rocked, but Penny was pissed off. Pritzker had taken this state senator/community organizer from the ghetto, made him a US Senator, then, as Obama's campaign finance chairwoman, raised a mind-blowing three-quarters of a billion dollars to make him president.
In return, in 2008, Obama decided to make his patron Penny the Secretary of Commerce. But then, in November 2008, just as Obama was about to submit her nomination to Congress, a bunch of Pritzker's victims marched on Washington. They were not from her busted bank, but unhappy workers from the lucrative nursing homes that her family owns through a string of complex offshore trusts. Obama slammed the door on Penny pronto.
The Pritzker family made its billions mostly from Hyatt Hotels and Hyatt nursing homes. Penny, on the Hyatt board of directors, is an infamously combative anti-union apostle. UNITE HERE, the union that represents Hyatt workers, has called for an international boycott of Hyatt hotels. In 2012, UNITE HERE and its parent, the AFL-CIO, were crucial to Obama's winning Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin. So, in this last campaign, Obama had to keep his billionairess heiress on the down-low.
Obama appeared to keep the door shut on Pritzker throughout the 2012 campaign, reducing her to hosting an election fundraiser at her Gold Coast digs, which she had to bill as a Goldman Sachs PAC event. This marks possibly the first time and last time anyone used Goldman Sachs as a PR cover.
But today, with the unions' money and votes already pocketed and counted, Obama can give working folks The Finger and give Penny her pound of flesh: the Commerce post.
The New York Times says that, "At Commerce, Ms. Pritzker could provide the president with a new way to reach out to the business community." The last time Pritzker reached out to the business community was to sell them sub-prime mortgage securities, worthless bags of financial feces manufactured by Superior Bank.
By giving Penny, the Piggy Banker, Commerce, we have to change Obama's rating to sub-prime.
I do note that some woman’s organizations are applauding the appointment of the first female to the Commerce post. But I prefer to honor the victims of the Chicago femme fatale. Most of Penny’s victims, busted bank borrowers and underpaid health care workers, are women, too. But, unlike those wounded and destroyed by Pritzker, she worked hard for her money: it was not easy inheriting her first billion from her daddy.
but this whole subject IS in the category of "conspiracy theory" whether you like it or not.
" I do not consider her a purveyor of paranoid deranged conspiracy ideas"
We don't either Christine. Apparently that is your job here (self-appointed)...........
began to flood into the classroom. I evaluated textbooks, gave the page numbers and exact quotes found in textbooks that had New Age bias, etc. We were able to keep some of it out of our textbooks back then; but now with the textbook adoption process in Texas being almost destroyed because of SB 6, instructional materials can be purchased by the locals without the materials having to pass through the SBOE public adoption process. Now New Age, pro-Islam/anti-Christian/anti-Judeo/anti-American content is flooding
students' curriculum. That is why we are seeing students such as the ones who did the Boston Marathon bombings.
It turns out that not everybody at the National Catholic Reporter is happy with the LCWR.
Michael Sean Winters, blasted, "moving beyond Jesus".
As Fr. Z reported,
Something curious is happening at the National Schismatic Reporter (aka Fishwrap).
stumble. 14Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. 15Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away. 16For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall. 17For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence. 18But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shines more and more to the perfect day. 19The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble. 20My son, attend to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. 21Let them not depart from your eyes; keep them in the middle of your heart. 22For they are life to those that find them, and health to all their flesh. 23Keep your heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. 24Put away from you a fraudulent mouth, and perverse lips put far from you. 25Let your eyes look right on, and let your eyelids look straight before you. 26Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established. 27Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove your foot from evil.
Your poorly-worded response exactly proves the point I made smallfarm. Christine has successfully made this blog about her & for her.
Sad to see it go off message through her continuing distractions.
(and perhaps loving it too huh Christine?)
Thanks for the link.
Did you know that "Fishwrap" has been asked by more than one bishop not to call itself "Catholic?"
Bishop Finn: National Catholic Reporter should not call itself Catholic
Bp. Sheridan: the Fishwrap is “an embarrassment to the Catholic Church”
Canon lawyer: Bishop has warned National Catholic Reporter
I believe I know who you are. I NEVER stopped doing serious research on the New Age Movement which is ongoing and continuous. YOU VERY WELL KNOW THIS! Your actions unfortunately sometimes remind me of school bullies who get up gangs against less popular classmates. I was terribly bullied in school as a youngster. It probably toughened me for what was to come, but also let me know when it is ongoing for others. For that reason, if for no others, I dislike passionately the attempts to chase people such as Joyce, Christine, and others off the blog. At least Christine uses her name so the COLLAPSE COMMENTS feature can be used for those so determined to avoid her. No, I certainly do not agree with many of Christine's perspectives. But I don't agree with yours either which appears to get internet gangs and cliques up against those not saying what you feel they should say.
If you are really opposed to the New Age, you should avoid these ugly tactics which frankly are much of what drives others into the seemingly friendly arms of New Agers.
Who is the Reporter run by? The commenters argue that they are secular and protected under law, so the church cannot do anything.
The point here is that they call their views Catholic doctrine and dogma.
In the secular world you call this fraud.
I am not a lawyer, but I am aware that there are a lot of groups that have broken away from the Catholic Church that still go by the name of "Catholic" but are not officially recognized as such by the Roman Catholic Church.
From a religious point of view, this may be fraudulent, but from a secular point of view, it is not illegal.
I would say that the best any Roman Catholic bishop can do is pretty much what they already have done - namely, to publicly announce that such so-called "Catholic" groups and news publications do not in any way represent the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
Here is the lowdown on the National Catholic Reporter and its founder:
NATIONAL CATHOLIC REPORTER
The National Catholic Reporter (NCR) is a newspaper in the United States, which covers topics on the Catholic Church; its circulation reaches ninety-seven countries on six continents. Based in midtown Kansas City, Missouri, NCR was founded by Robert Hoyt in 1964 as an independent newspaper focusing on the Catholic Church. Hoyt wanted to bring the professional standards of secular news reporting to the Catholic press, maintaining that "if the mayor of a city owned its only newspaper, its citizens will not learn what they need and deserve to know about its affairs". It has won the "General Excellence" award from the Catholic Press Association in the category of national news publications each year from 2000 through 2011.
The publication is not connected to the Church itself and is independent. Promoting a progressive position, the NCR presents itself "as one of the few, if not the only truly independent, journalistic outlet for Catholics and others who struggle with the complex moral and societal issues of the day."
Position of the Church
In 1968, NCR's ordinary, Bishop Charles Herman Helmsing "issue a public reprimand for their policy of crusading against the Church's teachings," condemning its "poisonous character" and "disregard and denial of the most sacred values of our Catholic faith." Helmsing warned that NCR's writers were likely guilty of heresy, had likely incurred latae sententiae excommunications, and because the publication "does not reflect the teaching of the Church, but on the contrary, has openly and deliberately opposed this teaching," he "asked the editors in all honesty to drop the term 'Catholic' from their masthead," because "by retaining it they deceive their Catholic readers and do a great disservice to ecumenism by being responsible for the false irenicism of watering down Catholic teachings."
NCR refused to comply with its ordinary, and 66 Catholic journalists signed a statement disagreeing with the condemnation based on its "underlying definition of the legitimate boundaries of religious journalism in service to the church." The Catholic Press Association reported that the dispute arose from a difference of opinion regarding the function of the press."
In 2013 Bishop Robert Finn wrote a public letter on the NCR recalling that Bishop Helmsing had asked the publisher "to remove the name 'Catholic' from their title -- to no avail. From my perspective, NCR's positions against authentic Church teaching and leadership have not changed trajectory in the intervening decades." He relayed that early in his tenure the paper refused to "submit their bona fides as a Catholic media outlet in accord with the expectations of Church law" and held that they were an "'independent newspaper which commented on "things Catholic."'" In January 2013, The paper responded denying the implication that there was a decades long animosity between the bishopric and themselves, especially noting that "Bishop John Sullivan and Bishop Raymond Boland -- had cordial relations with NCR." They pointed out that NCR is a member of the Catholic Press Association of the United States and Canada whose honorary president is Bishop John Wester who also serves as the U.S. Catholic bishops' conference as its chairman of the Committee of Communications. NCR's response closed by recalling that they had published an article calling on Finn to resign or be removed from his position "After a local judge found Finn guilty last year of failing to report suspected child abuse involving a local priest".
Naturally, when these critters come under scrutiny, they, like LCWR, hypocritically trot out the sex abuse scandal in order to shift the focus of attention away from their own apostasy and moral failures.....much like the Nazis used to do in the 1930's in order to prepare public opinion for whatever moves they were planning to make against the Catholic Church.
Here is information on one of NCR's co-founders.
Robert G. Hoyt (born 1922 in Clinton, Iowa, died 2003) was an American journalist, and the founder and first editor of the National Catholic Reporter, an independent newspaper focusing on the Catholic Church.
In 1964, he founded the National Catholic Reporter, because he wanted to bring the professional standards of secular news reporting to the Catholic press. Its circulation went to 100,000 in just a few years, leading other Catholic newspapers to adopt its probing standards of journalism as well. However, Hoyt left the newspaper in 1970.
His opposition to the Vietnam War led him to work for the presidential bids of Senator Eugene McCarthy in 1968 and Senator George McGovern in 1972. From 1977 to 1985, he was executive editor and subsequently editor in chief of Christianity & Crisis, a liberal ecumenical journal. He was also senior writer at Commonweal.
A little over a year ago, Mr. Hoyt was called to answer to a Higher Authority when he died last April, 2012.
