  1. Dear Anthony,

    This is a very interesting concern BECAUSE it is not unlike the priest abuse crisis :
    Do you have rouge agents free lancing who
    get caught in an investigational stupidity OR coordinated activities of an organization in operation against an organized entity ?

    If you recall much of the priest abuse crisis , where “criminal” , prosecutions and civil suits followed a naritive that the actions of Church leadership , when protective of their
    “agents” , did so in a pattern which conformed to RICO law enforcement . Investigators , my opinion , really don’t care about Joe “pew” , they care about the “made men” AND all is fair in love and war?

    Investigators, in relation to law enforcement, can then use whatever bullshit narrative they like in pursuit of criminal activity , even if it tarnishes the motivations of the well intentioned in the process. THE PROBLEM, when does the narrative of a “rogue” team become political and not crime prevention ? In other words, hypothetical , if there wereSSPX priests and Bishops still protecting criminal abusers , and an infiltration occurred ( undercover) what would the narrative be ?
    Traditionalists are organized crime radicals?

    Now let’s say , what if the issue is money laundering – this is a huge weak spot for any organization , especially The Church, as A LOT of money is routinely donated .
    What is the quid pro quo of a donation ?
    The Church likes the money, will take the money , BUT The Church ( even at parish level ) typically May know little about the donors source of money or the donors agenda . BUT, by taking the money , just to receive a gift, there is exposure? AS the gift receiver can then be investigated as participatory ? AND, if investigated , another crime is found unrelated , the discovery of pedophile protection , then a whole different can of worms is opened .

    Suffice it to say, think about this , an investigatory operation is “like god” – THEY know everything and may exercise mercy or judgement . Unlike God , they can get the narrative wrong , BUT still be legal in their information acquisition . In other words, the “cover story” of investigation might be “blown” , BUTits not about the cover story !!! So a blown cover story would suggest that traditional Catholics are being gone after for politic, BUT it’s all bullshit – child abusers , human trafficking, and money laundering is undoubtably found in any number of “religious” groups everywhere. It happens that the present headline is “Catholic” wherefallen men are found , it can be anywhere USA .

    All that to say, if anything the priest abuse crisis should have taught us , the robes of “Christian” are not a defense for illegal conduct where it is found .

    I, for one , do have confidence for the majority of FBI street agents just doing their best like the majority of most priests. . THE problem , the bad “few” , those who may truly inject a political agenda ( “Catholic terrorist narrative “ ) as might smear the whole ( most Italian Catholics are great people ) .

    Only a “devils advocate “ perspective .

    1. Romans:

      25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

      26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

      28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

      More Than Conquerors

      31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:

      “For your sake we face death all day long;
      we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”[b]
      37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[c] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

  2. Looks like America’s endemic ANTI-CATHOLIC PREJUDICE
    has fallen to new depths . . this time using “the Feds”.

    Our Baptism commits us Layman and Laywomen especially
    to the TEMPORAL spheres of civic life, so that “One Nation
    Under (the TRUE) GOD” ] maintains a real dimension in
    our civil lives.

    We LET SLIDE daily prayer and penance at our own —AND
    our Nation’s —peril.

    Seems to THIS Grandpa [ i.e. with the “Uniting of the Clans”
    (Michael Matt) ) that professional Laity, men and women, with
    expertise in Judiciary, Executive, and FAMILY disciplines,
    ought to be able to block FBI and other anti-First Amendment

    Oh? . . but those Marxist Americans running the Nation and
    advising that lame, quacking duck President, they’re all
    CRIMINAL by yesteryears Constitutional standards AND

    But the IMMACULATE CONCEPTION, patroness of America,
    is not only “fair as the moon, brilliant as the sun, [ but also ]
    of Songs, 6:10 ff. She must become the undistractable focus.

    . . . along with ST. JOSEPH, Canada’s Patron, ” . . TERROR

    Veteran exorcist, Fr. Chad Ripperger, recently summed up
    his “job description” as ” . . beating up on Demons”. He also
    stated clearly that ALL “players” are under obedience to
    Christ, the Church, the Exorcist, and certainly the Demons.
    ( see recent talks ).

    The fact that —in events of the last quarter century —freedom,
    justice, and Constitution Law [both Civil and Ecclesiastical ]
    SEEM virtually destroyed today, does not indicate that Christ
    the JUST Judge has thereby been “Cancelled” !

    “ST. BRUNO, founder of the Carthusians, Patron of the
    Possessed, pray for us, pray for our Nations, pray for
    the Church !”

  3. We watched with interest your post regarding Sen J Jordan’s letter to the fbi. We wanted to note that we attend St Joseph Catholic Church in Sandpoint ID. A distance of 45 miles one way. We go there as it is more traditional 8:30 am Mass. We noted a person sitting (on our side) middle area and left side pews, that appeared out of place over 6-8 weeks. There are a number of visitors as it is a tourist town. But this person acted out of place, was dressed out of place but conservatively. He sat in the same area directly behind three families who always appeared conservative and usually led the prayer to St Michael after mass. That man no longer is apparent attending Mass. My wife and I commented on this person’s appearance and behavior as it occurred last year.

    Watching your youtube post made us remember that person with more questions than speculation.

    We are shocked by the events of the world around us. We morn that our family is torn apart by politics. We sent our children to parochial and Catholic High school and public university. We have not seen our grandchildren since covid started. So much for Catholic education.

    We have to endure a “deacon” imported from CA who warned not to “gloat” regarding the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in his “homily” after the Court’s decision was announced.

    Pray for us as we will for you.

  4. As I have said in the past many times and I will repeat once again, this is part of the final battle between Satan and Our Lady of Fatima. We are now experiencing on a daily basis a huge assault on all things Traditional Catholics believe and practice in our daily lives. For Traditional Catholics these things are non-negotiable; they are the pillars, or foundations of the faith, upon which rests Christ’s Bride, the One True Church and its Faith which our Blessed Lord has promised to protect. What should we do? Everything that supports and upholds this Faith even it is comes to our doorsteps and we are asked to give our lives for it. The Superior General, Fr. Pagliarano of the SSPX, recently made a statement to us and to the world that we are committed to this position of upholding our right to practice what we believe because it is our belief to do so. Be not afraid, Trust in God and hold to the faith.

    1. Bravo! I am so committed. The faith is my life while being greater than mere life on earth.

    2. A. Terranova [ “New Earth” ], your response is —once again —
      so “bang on”! My Grandpa’s believing heart will never grow cold
      so long as yourself [ and not a few other Faithful ] “man the
      Church’s ramparts”.
