The 2017 "Let Them Be For Signs" Series

I've decided to make this year's ongoing astronomical discussion an official series.  So, for your convenience, links to articles...

No more tears. Only Trump.

Something I posted on Disqus today, in response to an anti-Trump person:


Rules are out the window.  Democrats have set the precedent for decades.  The Hildabeast has multiple failures on her resume, several murders tacked onto her, she's done nothing in regards to her adulterous husband, and she could conceivably go to jail before the general election.  She's a horrible person.  The Left has decided for us that these are the standards, and these are rules. 

So, who gives a shit about Trump's background, what he says, or what he'll do? 

To the Left, I say "thanks."  Now we'll do whatever we damned well please.

Trump says what I like and sets the cultural standard.  If he becomes president, he will set the cultural tone for this country.  I like Trump, he makes me feel happy, he angers and draws out my enemies, so I will vote for him.

Seems pathetic that I'll vote for him based on an emotional high.  But since when has any elected politician stayed true to any kind of an intellectual and philosophical promise?  No one stays true to logic in this society.  But I and others on the alt-Right are happy to admit this.  The Left and the cuckserative coattail riders are still pretending to be smart and intellectual, when they're the most emotional caricatures of all. 

Now, now.  Stop crying.  Only Trump.  You will swallow this pill.

Ride On: A Rodeo Novel

Over two years ago, I mentioned some authors who are published through Amazon.com's Kindle publishing program.  I never got around to doing the reviews that I wanted to do, thanks largely to various other tasks.  But I'm caught up now, and this week, I've managed to read and review a book that's been on my shelf these two years.

I am talking about the writing of Michael Hearing.  This newest edition of his rodeo tale is titled, Ride On: A Rodeo Novel.  The book has been out for two years, and it originally had a different name, Out of Goshen.  The title is available on Kindle, though I think it is also available in other formats if you use those.

Here is my Amazon customer review:
This is a book for men 
 I am not an enormous fan of the cowboy lifestyle. I am not a rodeo enthusiast. I am a city slicker. I'm fond of well-established metroplexes found on the East and West Coasts of North America. Civilization and history have always attracted me. So, when I opened this book, I knew I'd be reading about a lifestyle that was "getting a little western."
After I read through the first few action-packed scenes, I could say this book describes "a cowboy paradise all right." Yet, I kept reading. Why? Because, if you boil it down, this is not just a story of world-champion bulldoggers. This is a story about men.
The exploits of Michael Anders is a tale for the everyman who ever thought about conquering "that worming maggot of fear." Out there, in the wild plains are the good ol' boys who give each other shit while they risk their lives for money, revelry, and for the thrill of danger that puts a keen edge on the crowd's pleasure.
As you read through each bronco and bull ride, you really don't know if this is going to be THE moment where, perhaps, the rider gets seriously hurt, put out of the contest, or just killed. In every scene, I truly did not know if he was gonna make it. The struggle between man and beast is intense.
Hearing's ability to write the visceral details of a scene are incontestable, and I am left with the impression that this author has had some experience in the rodeo life. Who else but a rider would be able to put something like this as plain as day? Rodeo is about man versus nature. At the end of every bucking bronco ride, you come away realizing that it was a dance all along. Moreover, I'm left with a sort of deep respect for the courage, the nerve--the raw manliness--required to take on such fierce animals. Every time a bucking bull would sweep at his human annoyance with his pair of horns, I truly feared for the rider.
In between the adrenaline cascades and the intense moments of life or death, Michael Anders endures the gritty, stinky, bloodied rodeo road life that only a bachelor adventure can compare to. His is a lifestyle of buckle bunnies, plastic beer cups, unstable country bar tables, stretched dollars, sleeping in cars, and enduring several days' worth of unwashed hangover sweat. When life's this raw, all an Oklahoma cowboy can do is give the beast a stab with his spurs, and keep hanging on.
As I said before, this is a story about men. As such, it is a book for men. It will appeal to any man who has taken a dose of the Red Pill. Any man who has valued his manhood will be able to appreciate a story like this. Moreover, this book will make a great companion for a Hemingway novel. In an age when real masculinity is stampeded into the dirt, men need a book like this.
So, cowboy up and ride this rodeo lookin' bastard. Carry some of the grit of the arena away with you.

I meant every word of it, and I recommend all you fellas out there give this book a try.  People don't write them like this, anymore.  Most males these days wouldn't even be able to conceive of living a life like Michael Anders. However, it's important that we remember how to be the risk-taking adventurous men we were meant to be.  This book--even if you aren't a cowboy--will help you get your bearings for manhood's journey.

Suscipe Domine: An Enormous Mess


Brought to you by the Suscipe Domine forum.

Kaesekopf, owner of a Traditional Catholic forum that mainly serves as his Echo Chamber and a plaything to serve his emotional agenda, once again demonstrates his whimsical uneven hand at leadership, here towards the end of winter.

The most recent spectacle is a thread about a recent interview between Bishop Fellay of the SSPX on the show Conflict Zone.  As you will observe, the thread is started by the ever-smirking Father Cekada, who is always game to ridicule other priests in the Catholic Church, and is always prepared to bait and stir up members in other forums.

And yet, in spite of this truly destructive behavior, KK keeps Fr. Cekada around like some sort of pet, demonstrating that the former has some sort of fondness towards sedevacantism that he dare not openly admit.  Why be a coward?  Why not just outright proclaim that you flirt with sedevacantism--as I've accused you of all along?  Why deny this?

A look at the ban list will demonstrate that Fr. Cekada has been banned three times from The Echo Chamber "due to his uncharitable posting habits after being warned," "for disregarding a moderator request," and for spitefully recommending that Pope Francis sit in an electric chair.  

Indeed, reading Fr. Cekada introduce the thread about Bp. Fellay, I envisioned some kind of a mad grinning scientist mixing chemicals for nefarious purposes.  This kind of bating is not good, wholesome, or Christian.  And yet, here, we see a priest behaving in a shameful manner.

And if the desired effect was to create a thread full of contention, stife, and argument, then Fr. Cekada has succeeded.  In fact, if Fr. Cekada is resigned to be a sedevacantist, what other reason could he have for being on a Catholic forum where people are not sede?  The Echo Chamber is populated mostly with SSPX, FSSP, and diocesan TLM Catholics.  The sedes who are there are a minority, in spite of the fact that they get their own folder.  So, why else would Fr. Cekada be there, other than to either draw Catholics into sedevacantism, to mock any Catholics still faithful to the Magesterium, or all of the above?



The thread about Bp. Fellay progresses as one would expect.  Christulsa remarks about how, in the interview, the bishop was serving as an excellent example of holiness and truthfulness.  Dymphna17 chided Fr. Cekada, telling him that Bishop Fellay was "an example more than a few of us could follow."

And then, there were those in the thread who were disappointed with Bp. Fellay's interview.   Gerard was upset that Bp. Fellay could have done a better job.  Clare remarked that he was too apologetic and equivocated too much.  By page two, Greg chimes in with the brashness that the online Trad community loves, and gives a real red-meat opinion about the matter.  Clearly, Greg was not happy.

By page three, Greg says that Bp. Fellay came out of the interview looking like an idiot, criticizing his daft grin and unhelpful demeanour.  He called Fellay an irresolute milquetoast appeaser who is incompetent to negotiate anything.  LausTibiChriste, being the baiting jerk that he is, called Cantarella an asshole.  (This is typical of LTC, who is a timid weakling when it comes to evangelization.)  King Wenceslas argued that Fellay needed to be more of a man.

Congrats, Father Cekada!  You've really stirred up the hornet's nest now, eh?  If I were to hazard a guess, I'd say that Satan couldn't have done a better job.  After all, nowhere in the thread do you step in and try to coach hot tempers to be more reasonable.  But I digress.

The Cicada
By page four, christulsa argued that Fellay spoke the truth charitably.  Yet, Gerard retorted that the interview was not truthful at all, but a jumbled mess, likening the bishop to a clericalized version of President Obama.  Christulsa argued that Greg and Gerard were out of line in the manner they were criticizing Bishop Fellay, and he posted the forum's rules for all to see:

Hello and welcome to Suscipe Domine!

Suscipe Domine is a traditional Catholic forum committed to preserving and defending Traditional Catholicism.  Our common Catholic faith, as taught and professed throughout history, binds us at this forum. The "party line" is that of the Society of St. Pius X...
5) "Trad-bashing" is not permitted. While raising concerns or making comments about various currents in the Traditional Catholic community is allowed, unfair accusations about individuals or groups who are sincerely trying to practice the Faith is forbidden. Likewise, insinuating that certain trads or groups of trads are not really Catholic will not be tolerated.
By page five, Greg's called Bishop Fellay an idiot who was out of his depth in his own house (where the interview took place).  Finally, KK the Coward jumps in and calls Bishop Fellay a lost puppy.  "We need prelates to not be such candyasses," he says.  KK goes on to say that Bp. Fellay is a Caspar Milquetoast who "couldn't even defend his spiritual father's words about Muslims."  Christulsa proceeded to tell Kaesekopf "the TL;DR moderator" that calling Bp. Fellay a candyass--amid all of the other insults--conflicts with forum rules about Trad bashing.

Christulsa was right.


As I recall, I had a thread on SD actually locked by Archer for when I was apologizing to Fr. Cekada for calling him a worm and referring to him as the insect, the cicada.  Indeed, after talking to a few priests, I was informed that not even Fr. Cekada ought to be talked to so disrespectfully.  So, I made a quick thread in which I apologized to Fr. Cekada.  I also publicly repented of any insults I tossed out towards Arius, Martin Luther, and Judas--just to cover my bases.  Don't wanna go insulting priests, after all.

I asked the moderators to please lock the thread quickly so that it wouldn't get out of hand. Unfortunately, my adversaries were allowed to fester, and more ill will was stirred up towards me.

For the record I don't appreciate the entitled attitude you took when you...recommended...I lock your thread.  -Archer

Of course, I'm not the only one who can see that Fr. Cekada seems to be an unwholesome and detrimental member of the online Traditional Catholic community.

Nolimetangerechristisvm (I'll now refer to as NMT) created a thread earlier in the day before the Bp. Fellay thread.  In it, he linked to a blog post that discussed Fr. Cekada's support for justifying the death of Terry Schiavo.  Seemed like an interesting topic for conversation.  NMT finished his post, stating: "I would personally never have allowed this man to be permitted to post here if were up to me."

But KK the Coward wouldn't have any of that.  How dare this forum member attack his boy, Fr. Cekada!  No sir.  The poster NMT was banned that day:
Regardless of your feelings with respect to Fr Cekada, he is still a Catholic priest and deserves some level of respect.

One day ban issued.
My good people!  My fellow Romans!  Does this not strike you as outright hypocricy?  The stench of Kaesekopf's bold two-faced nature is on display for everyone who merely takes a look!

Kaesekopf of Suscipe Domine's take on clergy:
Bishop Fellay: Lost puppy, and candyass
Fr. Cekada: "he is still a Catholic priest and deserves some level of respect."



What utter and detestable double speak!  What a complete fraud!  What a double-dealing, glib, sanctimonious loser!

That day, not a single person was punished for failing to respect Bishop Fellay.  But NMT--who dared to go after KK's sedevacantist pet--he's the one who got banned that day.

And as long as we're looking at bans, just how much vulgarity can Greg get away with on the Suscipe Domine forum?  I'm a huge fan of Greg, and if I had a forum, I'd keep him on as an asset.  But universal rules would apply to him just the same as everyone else.

On Suscipe Domine, our friend Greg has been banned SIX TIMES.  He's still posting to this day.  Looks like he's getting at least SEVEN chances, now:

What a load of crap!


2/8/14
2/6/14
10/8/14
7/23/15
12/16/15
12/20/15



Get a load of the nonsense they sputtered for Greg's first banning.  They're such hypocrites and liars:
Greg's post was unacceptable both because of the vulgar language that he used and because of his uncharitable attitude toward the OP. It is not Greg's place to dictate what is worthy of prayer. Indeed, if asking for intercession from one's fellow Christian brothers and sisters in the struggle against sin is not worthy of prayer, then what is?
Amazing.  That was two years ago.  I assure you, more vulgarity and "uncharitable language" was to follow for the next 24 months.  His ban record alone attests to that fact.

Myself?  I was ostracized by my fourth banning.

2/20/14
8/15/14
9/8/14
12/11/14

Consider this nonsense they told me on my third banning:
LaramieHirsch has been banned for three days per the banning schedule for his conduct in this thread, posting with an agenda, not posting in good faith, instigating the forum.
Instigating the forum?  Really?  You're gonna let Fr. Cekada come into the community, throw filth and ill will around about Church officials, you're gonna call Bishop Fellay a candyass--you're gonna do all that, and tell me that I'm instigating the forum?

Kaesekopf, the owner of the Sucipe Domine forum, is a terrible person.  He's a mess.  A big fat mess.

And posting with an agenda?  Are we all not Traditional Catholics who have a Traditional Catholic agenda?  What an airy fairy statement.  And as far as "not posting in good faith," I'd say that the entire forum is not run in good faith.

Suscipe Domine is an echo chamber.  A circus.  A joke.  It holds no dignity.  The people there exist there, merely because they have to congregate somewhere.  They keep their heads down and try not to rock the boat, for fear of KK's uneven heavy-handed whims.

It's no damned wonder the atheists and everyone outside of these circles mocks us.  We can't even live by Catholic standards.

Internet Clampdown Prophecy Fulfilled: Aurini Banned

Last October, Aurini managed to warn us about an eventual clampdown on Internet discourse.  He identified Facebook and YouTube by name.   Corporations have come under the control of brain-washed liberal Gen Xers and hopelessly spellbound feminists.  Now, these corporations are catching on to the social justice warrior (SJW) trend of shutting down the free speech of the Right.  Threats of the destruction of right-wing speech looms across the land.

And, you know, I don't think I need to tell you people that YouTube, Facebook--these large conglomerations--these are a little bit more than just private companies. Okay? These are archivalists. These are librarians by the very nature of the work they do, and the dominance they have in the industry--they have a moral responsibility to protect freedom of speech, to protect information.
...
Ripping the ad revenue away from people the way that YouTube is threatening to do with these new terms of service--this has a chilling effect on freedom of speech.
...
What YouTube is trying to do, is turn it into the Disney Channel. So, if you want to talk garbage about the Kardassians, or Paris Hilton, or if you want to, you know, review the latest Avengers movie, that stuff's all okay. But as soon as you want to have an actual conversation...it's turning into the corporate world. The corporation is taking over the entire world. These speech guidelines that you're expected to obey at work are becoming the standards for everyone everywhere.

Aurini, you were more on target than you ever realized.  Who could have predicted that, within only half a year, you'd be targeted in the manner that you warned us all about?

Indeed.  Last week, Davis Aurini found himself targeted on YouTube, just as he had predicted would happen late last year, and he was shut down.  His account was blocked, even though he was a member in good standing for years.  If you were to check into his channel, you would only see the following text:
This account has been terminated due to repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines and/or claims of copyright infringement.
At some point, for whatever reason, YouTube decided to remove the following videos in particular:

-The Erosion of Privacy
-Appearance & Essence; Tradcons & Marriage
-The Question Libertarians Just Can't Answer (a response to Stefan Molyneux)
-The Corporate Boyfriend
-Dating Advice for Anita Sarkeesian

None of these videos were threatening in any way whatsoever.  However, they are likely to piss off left-wing SJWs--such as Anita Sarkeesian, who may have had a hand in this fiasco.  We all knew this was coming, but I'm surprised that it happened so soon.

Instances such as this are cropping up in many places across the West.  Brendan Eich was forced to resign from Mozilla for daring to support a pro-family non-profit.  Twitter has begun to shadowban users who do not tout the lines of the Left (aided by their squad of SJW leftists, including Anita Sarkeesian).  Facebook, this year, has expelled individuals from the Facebook groups: "#GamerGate & #NotYourShield" and #GG.  Across the pond, in Europe, individuals are finding themselves targeted by their governments for daring to express alarm at the Muslim invasion crisis--with help from Zuckerberg's Facebook staff, of course.

The Left's attacks against right-wing speech can even be witnessed in this current Republican primary.

Consider the insane and pre-planned protest assault on yesterday's Donald Trump rally, as Trump continues on to campaign for the presidency in this Republican primary.  Today, in Kansas City, Trump had something to say about such nasty people.  He stated the following (skip ahead to the 10:54 mark):
You know if we do that to one of their rallies, you know what happens?  Front page how bad we are.  Okay?  Front page.  We do that at one of their rallies, to Bernie or to Hillary, and they would say: "Isn't that terrible?" The press, the dishonest press!  They're the most dishonest people in the world. 



Watching this spectacle of Leftist infiltrators reminded me about how, back in 2008, the Democratic National Convention decided to put up cages for any right-wing protesters.  Actual cages.  It was ridiculous, and Red Team nicknamed them "Freedom Cages" out of spite.  Can you blame them?

Like Donald Trump said, had he or any Republican candidate utilized cages to hem in protesters, the Left-owned media would rake them over the coals.   Frankly, I think that Obama and those on the Left have set the precedent.  With Donald Trump, we don't have to have a candidate with a blemishless past.  They have their corrupt leaders, so we can have our corrupt leaders.  Next step?  Use their tactics against them.  Shamelessly.  Without mercy.

The Left--the Blue Team, as Davis Aurini calls them--has no interest in letting you talk.  They don't even want you to have your job.  They want you fired for who you are.  They want you to be fired, starve, lose your children--probably be shot and thrown in a ditch.  That is what the Left wants.  They do not respect you if you are on the Right.  They will not defend your rights, or your right to voice your opinion.

Blue Team will not relent.  You cannot hide from them.  They will eventually find you, even if you keep your nose clean and your head down, as seen by this incident with Aurini's ban from YouTube.  As Vox Day said two years ago:
Most conservatives in the corporate community have prided themselves on being "colorblind" with regards to the political spectrum. I suspect that many of them will, sooner or later, understand that they have to abandon that position as being no longer tenable or intellectually justifiable.
Some will attempt to claim to be on a Team Gray.  As if there was some kind of a neutral ground.  As if it were possible to avoid being targeted.  But Vox just made it clear that there will be no safe part of the political spectrum.  And Aurini expands upon this, letting us know that there is no Team Gray.  "Grey Team is Blue Team; they just pretend to be a separate group."  

No.  There will be no neutral ground.  There will be no safe zone.  Everyone will have to decide which side they are on.  The Culture War in the West is real, and everyone will be dragged into it very soon.  It is inevitable, it is inescapable, it will be winner-take-all, and everyone ignoring it, we can assume, are on Blue Team.  Because there is no Team Gray.

I strongly encourage you to prepare yourself for the battles to come by reading Aurini's latest article -- Red Team vs Blue Team: The Current Political Crisis.
I used the word ‘crisis’ in the title of this piece for two reasons. The first is the most obvious: that we are on the verge of this cold war getting hot once again (the polarization in politics is evidence of that). The second is that the battlefield has changed, and we might very well be in a position where winner takes all.

Our adversaries are getting feisty, folks.  There's no getting out of this.  It's time to cowboy up.  It's rodeo time.

Checking In. Hiatus Ended

I'm done with the CT registry.  Study time is over.

Of course, I've somehow managed the time to post on this blog anyway.  So, that's distractions for ya.

Insanity: The West Repeats The Same Folly Continuously

One thing that frustrates me about my fellow countrymen is that they do not realize that it's over.  Voting, protesting, debating...nothing.  All of it.  This thing, this civilization that we inherited--we've lost it, and no one realizes it.

People continue to think that if they continue to do the same tired thing they've been doing for the last fifty plus years, that somehow things will get better.  They won't.  People continue to think the gravy train that is Western Civilization will keep on givin', that the current condition is how it's always been, and that things will always be this way in the future.

For these reasons, I really don't put too much stock in hopeful saviors.  Yet, everyone around me continues to think the next cowardly moderate leader in our society is going to right the train back onto the track.

Twenty-First Century Western Civilization is a suicide culture.  The people collectively WANT to wither away.  Why else would they be so eager to kill their children and their elderly, punish free thought, and open the city gates for the barbarians?  The West hates itself, and it wants to die.

Sure, I'll put in my token vote and make my small symbolic gesture that I want our degradation to slow down--or even stop.  But I simply cannot be the only one who effectively preserves our inheritance for my children, grandchildren, and their descendants.  I cannot do it all by myself.

There are others out there, but it's not enough.

Therefore, my posterity and I must simply become harder, tougher, and more durable...as the Western Culture War comes to a close, and victorious godless anarchy overcomes one outpost after another.  Another atoll sunk.  Another station silenced.  All flags kicked down.

I never wished this desolation on me and mine.  But today, the men are cowards.  And the reality is: the West deserves this.

Laramie Hirsch,
Toxic Trad

Super Tuesday, March 1st 2016. Trump's winning.


I can't say this enough: I despise you, Republican Establishment.

Now, sit back, hold your nose, and accept this candidate that we have chosen for the party. Just as you bastards have forced us to hold our nose and accept the Bushes, McCain, Romney, and an army of neo-con cuckservative losers.

Hold your nose, and take it.

Distress.
