~ JUST TO BE CLEAR— Nope. Nope nope. NOPE.

I’m an original Star Wars kid. Saw the first one 14 times that Summer of ‘77. Spent a couple thou on merch over the years, helping make the Dark Lord George rich. Those first three movies were big pivotal events. Cultural moments. Good versus evil, heroes vs. villains, big over-simplified sloppy-science nerdy space-opera.

Darth George The Hutt.. wanna buy a toy, kid?

Then, George got mad about the success of Titanic, and James Cameron. Enter the prequels. Meh, take the kids, maybe there’s something.. oh. What’s that smell? Little Rebel filmmaker George had morphed into Darth Jabba, bully billionaire toy-seller with a side-order of movie-making.

I Gotta Bad Feeling About This

Hey Fanyboyz.. get butthurt! Girl POWER!

The latest branded product? Pretty much that South Park episode with Lucas & Spielberg raping Indiana Jones, and the audiences of that dreadful UFO+Indy movie. Except now, it’s Jar Jar Abrams, Kennedy, Mickey Mouse, and Johnson taking their turns violating Luke Skywalker, and the nerdly audiences of these three beautifully filmed– but contemptuous– violations of the SW universe & fandom.

There’s a lot of puzzled, offended, angry, and turned-off fans out there right now. And it hurt 2017 ticket-sales, toy & collectible sales, DVD & BluRay and all the knock-on money expected from big tentpole movies like this.

China_Probrem_Pic35
Murdering Movie Franchises is FUN!

This feels like part revenge for #GamerGate; and the industry flipping the bird at the public for slumping ticket-sales for recent Hollywood rubbish; and the spoil-it-all ill-will of progressives towards anything they didn’t make, and of which they disapprove. Take something good, kill it & skin it, and wear the carcass while demanding respect for the new thing as if it’s still the old thing. Then, mock the fans, and drink their tears. Ha ha ha.

Clearly the next movies must be about hunting down each & every surviving character.. Chewie, R2D2, C-3PO, Nien Nunb, and Lando Calrissian in the retirement home for space-rascals, and killing them. Then, dancing on the grave of old Star Wars.

Deeper Stuff Is Important, Too

The nihilist meta-narrative that there is no good or evil, nothing worth living & dying for, no unifying spiritual force above & beyond appearances— so we can just all live in John Lennon’s craptastic revolutionary songImagine’? What a horrible dead life that would be, of competing chaotic forces wrecking everything & each other in a race to mutual bored destruction. This new Star Wars is a paean of praise to that “Eff It ALL”  mentality.

Embrace the suckitude. Gray on gray on gray. Colourless and lifeless is the new awesome. Whatever. Shrugs all ’round.

The original movies were exciting & inspiring BECAUSE each person & their decisions mattered, made a difference. The protagonists were willing to live and die to help others, to hope and love and act in the face of apparently insurmountable tyranny. Leaving aside fanboyism and online insta-opinionated word-wars, it’s those deeply human elements that attracted us original kids in 1977.. a new take on movies, heroes & baddies, and interesting stories, remade with amazing effects and things we hadn’t seen before.

Of course they weren’t perfect. Of course they don’t make for a good religion or life. Of course you want to punch some fans in the nose and tell them to get a life and a religion.. but using a movie to do that is a pretty arrogant and dumb way to do it– and it’s bad business, no matter how many fart-sniffing film critics you make smirk with such work.

Nope. This original Star Wars fan is done. Not one more penny. Down with the Disney dystopia, and this disastrous train-wreck of a film franchise. ~

Even More Strange Things

Screen-Shot-2017-11-21-at-18.08.57

“The Upside Down is an alternate dimension existing in parallel to the human world. It contains the same locations and infrastructure as the human world, but it is much darker, colder and obscured by an omnipresent fog…. [a] dimension that is a dark reflection, or echo, of our world. It is a place of decay and death, a plane out of phase, a place of monsters. It is right next to you and you do not even see it.” … “Nope. No parallels under here.” (Hilary White)

+ + +

~ BINKS IS just about to finish ‘Stranger Things‘ on Netflix, Season 1. Must say, I love it.. and it’s hard not to binge-watch it.

No major spoilers ensue below. Promise.

Like The Matrix‘, the hit-show Stranger Things employs that familiar & human sense of displacement, weirdness, that there is an Unseen all around us which sometimes breaks in upon us in our ‘ordinary’ lives. That there is more going on than meets the eye.

In the popular Netflix series, which overflows with references to 80’s pop-culture, there is literally an evil copy parallel dimension called ‘The Upside Down‘, where people can be trapped, and eaten by a monster. The dimensional doorways can appear anywhere and everywhere: the wall of a house, a tree trunk, the basement of a top-secret government lab.

What both ‘The Matrix‘ and ‘Stranger Things‘ lack to make them universal is a spiritual universe above and inter-penetrating the visible ‘ordinary’ universe.. and a clear sense of God & His guiding providence. Sadly, religion plays almost no part in the show, or the lives of the characters.

Stranger-Things-Title-Card (1)

What ‘Meant’ Means

By comparison, the writer J.R.R. Tolkien repeatedly mentions providence without explicating that it is of the Valar (archangels) and Eru (God). The wizard Gandalf’s own long mission in Middle Earth was a sending from the Blessed Land to fight evil, help the free peoples via suffering and pity, and– ultimately– to defeat Sauron, the dark successor to Morgoth (a fallen Valar, the Satan-figure).

In that Lord Of The Rings scene– which Peter Jackson moves from Frodo’s kitchen to the Mines Of Moria– we read:

Frodo: “I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.”

Gandalf: “So do all who live to see such times; but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.

There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you were also meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought.”

Lord of the Rings The Fellowship of the Ring Movie Review DVD Review

That ‘meant’ bears a world of significance. Consider.

‘Meant’ is God’s providence, in the world, in events, ‘coincidences’, and via people. The Bible proclaims: “All things work together for good to them that love God.” [Rom. 8:28] Note: NOT ‘all things will be pleasant, easy, and straightforward’.

Remember: Christians serve a Crucified and Risen King, who still bears His (now glorious) scars. No easy path there: take up your cross. Follow, die.

nail-pierced-hand

Living Our Double Sight

And there’s another sense of “the unseen dimension”, our own actual “Upside Down”, which tempers our anger and enlightens our struggles. As Saint Paul teaches the Christians of Ephesus, and us:

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” [Eph.  6:12]

Any battle with sin, darkness, heresy– in the church and the world, and in our own hearts, is a combination of many forces, many invisible, or acting through us or other people in a greater & darker pattern than the simply human (as bad as we can be).

Exorcists are still busy in 2018. Possessed people still exist– some in politics, and in the Church itself. Even some clergy may be thus.

The Disorientation Is Real

In the current pontificate of Francis, there is unprecedented darkness, division, dishonesty, confusion and discouragement afoot. Papal hyper-loyalists rally ’round the revolutionary throne, throwing accusations at critics and radical (deep-rooted) Catholics who demand the whole witness of the Church to be heard, respected, lived, taught.

Sometimes, it feels as if an UnChurch from some evil parallel dimension like ‘The Upside Down‘ has invaded our reality, and is seeking to proclaim itself as the real, true, and only thing to serve. There is a spiritual war afoot: each of us can play a double part, on earth as in heaven, for good or bad. The darkness is not simply the opposition themselves, nor we only the bright good ones– for humility and reality’s sake, we admit there are brighter and darker forces in conflict within what we see, and in each soul.

AntiChurch-2-1500x926
Via 1 Peter 5, Steve Skojec.

Holy loyalty and faithfulness and restraint are good: but we do not honour the Church or her current leadership via our blind obedience, nor forgetting Whom She really belongs to, and Whose Voice she is supposed to obey. His will is not simply to be identified with the novel dictates of people who seem bound to another message, an unKingdom, a utopia of exalted man making himself into a God, his desires and feelings the measure of all truth and goodness. OUR kingdom come, OUR will be done: and yet, even in this, a greater darkness can be felt, seeping through, pushing, ruining, distorting the Church, but also the fever dreams of utopia, too.

Some Christian Basics

That evil unholy being is not some exact counterpart to God, but a created and fallen Enemy, and likewise all the fallen angels and powers under his control. Alone, we cannot defeat such darkness, for we are but mortal and finite and compromised with darkness ourselves. From such, Christ came to deliver us.

Demons-Feat

Ancient Paganism sought to placate the dark powers; to deflect the ill will of spirits, gods, sprites, and malicious beings of every sort. Animal and human sacrifice was the trading of precious life for benefits, or being left alone.

The Incarnation changed all that. Jesus is become the Lord of the living and the dead. The suffering King Jesus lays bare the plans and pride and shining schemes of Lucifer; He bore in himself our sin, and has already won the victory over sin, and death, and Hell.. yet the long wrapping up of the battle will seem almost like defeat, as the faithful must abide darkness in the world, the Church, the human heart, and in malicious spiritual forces.

But, but– What To DO?

Read the headlines; pray; comfort one another; love the sacraments; repent. Read the Bible & the Church Fathers, and the saints. Read solid blogs and books. Same as it ever was, and there’s no greener grass elsewhere. Cheer up! It will very likely get much worse.

Stay faithful, for God is faithful, and will not abandon us, or leave us weak and comfortless and enslaved to the machinations of the Enemy and his minions, nor to our own sins, negligences, and ignorances. These bizarre times WILL be sorted by God, and by his judgment & mercy, and by better Church leaders and theologians in decades and centuries to come. +

Pope Benedict Was Pushed

150907122658-01-pope-obama-large-169

~ LAST TIME AROUND, I mentioned in passing that “Pope Benedict XVI was pushed. He did not jump.” What did I mean?

Most religious journalists are not interested in all the facts. Facts can lead to other facts, and names, and deeds, more questions, then on to awkward truths and uncomfortable (and dangerous) realities.

Better to just ignore The Bad. More happy-time make-believe & pretend is better.. and so much safer.

Get To The Point, Elf

Bullseye360x220

Point: It is extremely likely that without the interference of the St. Gallen Church Mafia, & a globalist cadre, the U.S. government & banking interests, that the radical & radicalizing Pope Francis would ever have been “elected“, nor Pope Benedict XVI tossed into a surreal semi-retirement of a parallel contemplative Petrine ministry® thingy. A more Leftward Pope was deemed to be more useful to the utopia thing.

It also appears this is hardly a new thing in U.S. policy. Ugly truth indeed.

The Clintons. Obama’s Past. The NSA. Computer & Smartphone Spyware. Soros. Twitter & FaceBook & Google & YouTube versus conservative news, and your privacy. CIA & FBI dirty works & corruption. Operation Gladio. The “Russians & Hillary”. It’s a long list, of a favourite human occupation since there have been humans: whispering together for advantage.

Details, Details

This speculation & information about Pope Benedict’s being shoved down the trap door is all over the web, and parallel news websites, yet curiously missing from most mainstream media outlets® & approved Catholic News™ organizations. Of course. Duh.

As a friend of mine comments:

“I have spent a lifetime in politics and journalism. The near complete absence of curiosity or reportage in the world’s media on this astounding ‘resignation’ was, in itself, astounding. Something earthshaking happened here, obviously. Obviously.”

Such undue influence and interference from outside powers in the inner life of a spiritual organization might raise questions about– say– other times & certain other outside (& interior groups) & undue or illegal & illegitimate pressure & subversion brought to bear on the Catholic Church over the past, say, century.. or especially since the 1950s… all in politically & spiritually radical directions. Awkward silence ensues.

Can’t have that. The shiny pretty show must go on.

“Middle Ages dictatorship”?

What should this mean? That things are often not just as they seem, and marching blindly onwards is not the best response to evil active in our world, evil acts meant to control & deceive everybody.. except those “In The Know”.

That Benedict XVI was indeed overtaken by “the wolves”– remember the words from his first Mass as Pope: “Pray for me, that I may not flee for fear of the wolves.

up-85I01B0GJM8APE37

That Hillary, Obama, John Podesta, George Soros, and certain other bankers and power-brokers & hidden actors– including a goodly number inside the Church herself– are wicked wolves in sheep’s & shepherd’s clothing. Such are trespassing & wicked criminals before God and Man. That a lot of the people we are supposed to trust with our dollars and lives and souls make Gollum from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord Of The Rings look like an innocent, wide-eyed naïve & downright cuddly critter.

That the former Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio cannot help but know about some of this. Think about it.

So Now What?

What actual consequences flow thereof? What should we ordinary bums-in-pews or collars in pulpits make of such ugliness? Dunno. Way above my pay-grade*. This is heaven & hell & powers & principalities, “Gates Of Death/ Hell shall not prevail” level s of badness and power.

Please pray for all those involved, and my sinful soul, and your own– for all who live in such dangerous, disorienting, and deeply deceptive times.

>> Hans Küng: an ageing enfant terrible going nowhere

>> Samuel Gregg: Benedict XVI, Hans Kung and Catholicism’s Future

images

~ HANS KÜNG used to be a very big deal. I was wondering the other day if he was still alive. He is.

Younger Hans was the say-anything unorthodox enfant terrible of the mid-20th century Catholic Church revolution. He and his ilk were going to remake everything in sight: Church, society, culture, thought, truth itself. Utopia now: just one more change!

Now, the young radical celebrity is almost 90. I got his autograph once, in the mid-’80s. “Hans Kung, Not Infallible” it read. Daring.

Just Phone It In, Hans

Phoning_It_In_-_2009113011007022

His speech that day was a disappointing rehash of Thomas Kuhn’s “Paradigm Shift” theories.. from a book published in 1962, almost 25 years before he spoke to us at Acadia. Count me underwhelmed.

He brought nothing recent, relevant, nothing about Catholicism or post-1960s developments in theology, philosophy… just rehash. Regurge. Leftovers. Could’ve just sent along a polite note saying “Read this book. I like it.”

Yet he was a big deal, back in the day,  truly one of the 20th century modernist tsunami-riders, wreaking havoc on the Catholic Church as she was torn from her true self and made a puppet for the passing Zeitgeist and radical politics. In 2018, we are still floating amidst the wreckage, corpses, dirt, pollution and chaos of that time.

maxresdefault
It’s all good. Exciting & dynamic things are happening all around us! Embrace The Now. Don’t be narrow-minded and afraid of change.

A Band Of Busy Clevers

There was a whole cadre of such clever modernizers as Küng, who had schemed amongst themselves and with the modernist Pope John XXIII and his protege Montini (later Pope Paul VI) to subvert the original plans for the ecumenical council which became known as Vatican II. You can even read some of what was supposed to be discussed in the Council that was never allowed to take place, now that the revolution was rolling.

That crucial moment was all about power: seizing it, keeping it, imposing it, and remaking the Church in their image. The book-series and TV-show Game Of Thrones looks mild by comparison.

The break was with the past, personified by a ‘Medieval’ Pius XII: as he aged, he was minimized, mocked, dismissed, even shown in newspaper photos on his death-bed, and displayed at the funeral after a (deliberately?) bungled embalming. Pius was then all but  erased & forgotten in the predestined scheme to elect the stealth-modernist, progressive socialist, & likely freemason Roncalli (John XXIII) to the papal throne.

Pope-John-XXIII
Pope John XXIII

They Didn’t Start The Arson

From the 1750s onwards, a spirit of revolution, change, utopianism, and anti-Christianity arose in Europe. Promoted by the Masonic Lodges, “new-thinking” intellectuals in France and England and elsewhere, that idea of suddenly remaking everything broke out in France in that blood-soaked Revolution; less catastrophically in English legal and political reforms in the early 1800s, yet again in the Communist-inspired 1840s and 1850s, and on into the 20th century.

Bad things happen; we’re the ones who can & will fix it! We will do things to others for their own good, and throw down the bad people, and make a better future for mankind! Away with priests and superstition and kings and old ways!” Hence Robespierre, Marx, and all the others. Revolution now, then utopia!

karl-marx

Striking The Roots, Replacing The Tree

The Vatican II Council  was the mature fruit of that revolutionary spirit, and– within the Church– of over 80 years and more of bubbling ferment and subversion, promotions and mutual protection, denial and deceit, of the restless gnostic Catholic progressive modernists– the superior special ones who know the special things– planning to overthrow both the substance and appearance of the great enemy of Europe’s turbulent revolutionary spirit– the Catholic Church.

Once, perhaps, Hans Küng thought a glorious future lay just ahead, a churchly utopia of spirit and world cooperating to make a bright New Age for humanity. Surely this was the true motion of the Holy Spirit!

6a00d8341c993e53ef00e54f1d6cc88834-800wi

Sadly, such revolutionized ‘Christian’ leaders forgot the basic truth: don’t immanentize the eschaton. That is, don’t try and make heaven on earth in man’s image, for it will be hell. Such Marxism is a shallow shadow-faith leading to lies, gulags, and bleak fields of broken bones.

A Sad Shallow Failed Utopia

popeb16
Pope Benedict XVI

Sadly, and in retrospect, the brief pause in the revolution represented by Benedict XVI now leaves us in 2018 with the spectacle of two popes, one bullied out of office by nefarious means and whispered threats, and the other bent on remaking everything in his own image, and according to a singular and imposed modernist interpretation of both Vatican II, and his own ideas. Oh yeah– and Pope Benedict XVI was pushed. He did not jump.

francis-wrecking-ball-e1484232424914

The glorious revolution in the Church has– by its own internal logic– collapsed into mere power, a cult of personality, a marginalizing and dividing force, not a unifying and building principle, in which the “winners” endlessly repeat themselves, cheating the Church into fresh compromises and radical lies, collecting power and fame and money and more control. Doing things To people, and not For them, as Christ’s own precious flock, for whom he died.  Even, helping souls onward to Hell, and not Heaven.

Not a very inspiring utopia. Not exactly a very healthy or happy Church. The more they ‘succeed’, the more they fail– failing God, and his people, and the true Kingdom.

HANS KUNG
Hans, still banging the same old drum– “We’re gonna party like it’s 1963!” Yawn.

Turn Or Burn, Buddy

I do hope Hans repents and recants before he dies, though it will take long years before ever the horrid festering wounds and terrible damage he and his ilk did to the Church will be healed or repaired. Surely 1789 to 2018 is enough time to observe that revolutions go rogue: once things start falling apart, there’s no easy way to say “Whoa! That’s enough, and no further!” Surely the arrogance and pride of the long line of revolters is from Lucifer The Lying Proud Murderer, and not of Him Who came to serve, and not be served?

The way forward is not more revolution, but rather remembrance, rebuilding, rebuke, repentance, re-commitment, resistance, contemplative and prayerful obedience to Christ The King, and not to the spirit of the world, or the dark gods of worldly power, control, and proud sin.

Sorry Hans.

So Saith,

Oprah-for-President-2020--134092

 

~ THE BUZZ IS real, as is the political and cultural desperation. I think we just went through the mirror into Neverneverneverland.

After her Golden Globes speech when she glommed onto the #MeToo thing, to the exclusion of all the other people who were caught up by Harveywood predators (some knowingly), the “Is She Presidentable?” buzz is high around media mogul Oprah Winfrey.. at least in Hollyweird, and Demwashington. Plus, she blamed everybody everywhere for CastingCouchGate, so that always makes Hollywood scum feel better about themselves.

A Real Desolation

What’s a despairing Dem to do? Trump just keeps on, despite the best lies and smears Clinton Foundation & Friends can buy. More Hillary?! Nope, says America.

OK, then. How about crazy Comrade Bernie?.. again? Or Fakeohontas Warren? Joey “Girl-Toucher & Free Backrubs” Biden? You can hear the twice-defeated Wicked Witch of The Clintons gnashing her teeth already.

Yet Orpah herself is a known quantity– she has a record, a long list of words and deeds, not all of them attractive, or easily digested. And she has a long association with DC, Hollywood, creeps like Harvey Weinstein ( #OprahKnew !), along with professional race-baiters like Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton & Co..

nbctweetdeleted
Someone bent the knee.. but then the tweet was deleted. “NBC?Verified account — Yesterday a tweet about the Golden Globes and Oprah Winfrey was sent by a third party agency for NBC Entertainment in real time during the broadcast. It is in reference to a joke made during the monologue and not meant to be a political statement. We have since removed the tweet. 7:39 AM – 8 Jan 2018”

But Wait, There’s More!

And then there’s this 2013 gem:

“As long as people can be judged by the color of their skin, the problem is not solved,” she said, adding,“there are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it – in that prejudice and racism – and they just have to die.”

.. she says, judging people by the colour of their skin. Not old people of all colours: she means Old White People. Just. Have. To. Die. So very nice, is Okra.

I can’t even imagine saying that, let alone thinking it, let alone saying it to a reporter in a recorded interview. Yes, she did say that.

Yes, Orcah Winfrey, herself, is a bitter prejudiced and racist person. But only white people are or can be racist.. she and her ilk have it all figured out. It’s cuddly Black Pantherism and race war in a glossy remake. Obama with more charm, and media savvy.

22cgt5

So-and-so must DIE to bring about a better society? Extend this a little bit, and it sounds a little creepy and totalitarian, minus warm feelz. Very 18th to 20th century. Pick the bad guys to kill: Aristos, Vendeeans, the Irish, Counter-revolutionaries, White Russians, Jews, fascists, Tutsis, non-Communist Cambodians, infidel non-Muslims, unborn babies, expensive old people… if only we could get rid of X, then “Utopia Now!”

It’s Not Just Her

Truth is, we’re all a little racist. Yes. Everybody. All colours, races, creeds, classes, and ideologies. You*, me, him, her. All.

To pretend otherwise– like Orphrey Winfrey apparently does– is actually one short step from weaponized racism with a dash of delusion sauce. A “Be Ready to purge The Evil Ones” position, like that of noted racist and race-baiter and BLM riot & mob-backer “Constitutional Lawyer” Barry Soetoro Obama & his master George Soros. Be very afraid.

1515436072900-OPRAH2

Come, Sweet Meteor Of Death, 2020!

Candidate Winfrey? Could she be a Hillary, only with skill and media-savvy, a Trump-killer? A black woman for President, with all of Obama’s cronies back in power?

Dunno. But America has officially become a giant reality-TV show.

If I were American, I’d be pre-registering my vote for SMOD, 2020. Seriously. ~

> 2015: “FaceBook, You Suck.” The last time Zuck’s bots messed with my stuff.

~ AS I’VE NO DOUBT mentioned before, I hate FaceBook. It is intrusive advertising nanny-state social media, run by a progressive petty tyrant.

Last time around (2015), they locked me out of not one but TWO versions of my FaceBook account, because hidden trolls who did not like my political views registered complaints about my “real name”. I lost access to family pictures, articles, my friends-list, and a whole chunk of my digital life.

Never give control of your things to people you only think you know or trust. ALWAYS HAVE BACKUPS.

Yay, bullying, with a digital edge. Very hip, much now.

But Wait, There’s More!

Today– around 1:30pm– allegedly because my account has been “unusually” active (and because they care very very much) they require me to enter a mobile phone number (I don’t have a mobile phone) “for added security”. Until then, I have no access whatsoever to my FB account.

This is all I can see just now:

facebooksucks

No, I don’t share holiday snaps and cake recipes and high school reunion pictures (much), or share pictures of my current meal, or update you all on every facet of my boring life. Yes, Binks love politics, religion, culture, and especially the non-progressive and mainstream sewage that passes for “What We All Know”.

Mostly, I throw some links online, and do a lot of chatting and counselling with friends & family & people who have questions. I get names for my prayer list, and meet people across the country and around the world. As a disabled person, it’s a real part of “getting out”, getting in touch, and doing Christ’s work. As I said in 2015:

… I’m an ill guy living at home, alone much of the time, and FaceBook– despite all the privacy and other issues– is a major part of my chance to reach out, hear back, counsel, preach, build a wide variety of friendships around the world, communicate on matters I consider important or topical or timely. Minus FaceBook, I will be even more lonely, alone, and prone to the Black Dog, and that really sucks. Thanks, Zuckerberg, you heinous power-mad twerp.

So. Here we are. Again.

Is it worth my fighting with them over this, or creating yet ANOTHER FB identity, only to probably get more of the same from FaceBorg?

Please comment. ~

~ BINKS JUST LOVES him some Poinsettias.. in all their 100+ varieties of colour and look. I loved to have the church loaded with them where & when possible. It was only later I learned the dark history of the man behind popularizing the Mexican plant we display at Christmastime.

JRP-SoW,_S

The remarkable Joel Roberts Poinsett was a son of Charleston, South Carolina. As a young man, he learned many languages, law, and military affairs, then travelled widely through Europe, and South America. Later, he became the first United States ‘Minister’ (diplomatic spy) to Mexico in 1822-3, appointed by President John Quincy Adams.

The diplomat loved the Mexican plant “flor de la nochebuena“, or Christmas Eve flower, or Catarina. It was later named after him, after he introduced it to the United States in 1829– at a flower show in a Masonic Lodge.

For the remarkable Poinsett was also a Master Mason, and a Past Master of Recovery Lodge #31, Greenville, and Solomon’s Lodge, Charleston. His widespread interference on behalf of American interests in Mexico and South America tended in an anti-Catholic and U.S. democratic direction, and he was an expert in exploiting divisions within the newly independent Mexico, so to benefit American politics and aspirations, and his Freemasonic notions.

He helped quickly spread several forms of freemasonry to Mexico, then used the Mexican lodges to political ends… as he did wherever he went in the New World, against the forces of “aristocracy” and the Catholic Church.

Poinsett was rightly accused of fomenting revolution in Mexico, and he was expelled in 1829. He went back to begin a life in internal American politics.

He Helped Start The Fire…

Radical Mexican Freemasons ruled Mexico, and so Poinsett’s interventions twisted Mexican politics and religion for the next 120 years. Masons presided over many bloody persecutions of Mexican Catholics from 1815 through to the 1940s, including the famous ‘War of The Cristeros‘ in the 1920s. Countless persecuted Catholic martyrs suffered or died because of Poinsett’s Masonic new world religion.

In the early 20th century, the Freemasons were on the march, and militant secularism was the next great thing: no more kings or priests, just one great fellowship of humanity.  Revolutionary France, Italy, Mexico, the new USSR, and soon Hitler’s Germany would all part of the same movement. “Those whom the gods would destroy, they first drive mad” as the ancient saying has it.

A Word From Heaven

It was partly in response to the cruel realities & predations of socialist Freemasonry in Mexico and around the Western world that in 1925 Pope Pius XI instituted the Solemnity of Christ the King, and issued the Encyclical ‘QUAS PRIMAS’.

“At the end of the encyclical, he declared that he expected three ‘blessings’ to flow from the celebration of the feast: first, that ‘men will doubtless be reminded that the Church, founded by Christ as a perfect society, has a natural and inalienable right to perfect freedom and immunity from the power of the state’; second, that ‘Nations will be reminded by the annual celebration of this feast that not only private individuals but also rulers and princes are bound to give public honor and obedience to Christ’; and third, that ‘The faithful, moreover, by meditating upon these truths, will gain much strength and courage, enabling them to form their lives after the true Christian ideal.'”

Pope Pius XI

Long before the CIA existed, or ever gunboat diplomacy and banana republics were made, the remarkable Joel Poinsett was the very model of a scheming, opportunistic, imperialistic ‘Monroe Doctrine‘ Masonic utopian busybody. Likewise at home he presided over the explusion of many Native tribes from their homelands– including the infamous Cherokee “Trail of Tears”– as a Congressman and Minister of War under President Martin Van Buren.

The Infection Spreads

Sadly, the Church herself is often effected by the fads and power-seeking conspiracy-loving ways of the fallen world– it was only by a last-minute intervention that Cardinal Rampolla, possibly of the the Masonic Ordo Templi Orientalis, was not elected in 1903 instead of Pope St. Pius X. Later Masonic-insider revelations in the 1970s indicate that many leading Roman Catholic prelates, cardinals, and ecclesiastical movers and shakers were likely members of Masonic lodges, despite the Catholic restriction on such things. Such men included many of the architects of the radical Vatican II event.

Glory To The Newborn King!

All of this ugly history is not the Poinsettia’s fault. The plant is the plant.

The humble Flor de la nochebuena is one of God’s lovely creations, and despite Mr. Poinsett & Co.’s own best efforts, it has become a much-loved Christian and seasonal symbol of the birth of Christ the King, helping churches everywhere celebrate with beauty and colour the nativity of the newborn King, God incarnate, Man Divine, God with us, our true saviour, judge, friend, ruler, and salvation.

After more than 200 years of well-meaning but futile utopian scheming & blood-letting, God is still God, Man is still Man, fallen and lost and needing the imparted life of heaven through Jesus, The Lord. Each of us still has to decide who is our ultimate king: Christ, or some idol of humanity.

“Glory to the new-born king!”

So saith,

The Binks

HARK! the Herald Angels sing:
Glory to the new-born King!
Peace on Earth, and Mercy mild,
God and Sinners reconcil’d.
Joyful all ye Nations rise,
Join the Triumphs of the Skies;
Nature rise and worship him,
Who is born at Bethlehem.

Hark! The herald-angels sing:
“Glory to the new-born king!”

Christ, by highest heaven adored
Christ, the everlasting Lord,
Late in time behold Him come
Offspring of a Virgin’s womb:
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see,
Hail the incarnate Deity
Pleased as man with man to dwell
Jesus, our Emmanuel.

Hark! The herald-angels sing:
“Glory to the new-born king!”

Hail the Heav’n-born Prince of Peace
Hail the Sun of Righteousness!
Light and Life around he brings,
Ris’n with Healing in his Wings.
Mild he lays his Glory by,
Born that Men no more may die;
Born to raise the Sons of Earth,
Born to give them second Birth.

Hark! The herald-angels sing:
“Glory to the new-born king!”

Come, Desire of Nations, come,
Fix in us thy heav’nly Home;
Rise the Woman’s conqu’ring Seed,
Bruise in us the Serpent’s Head.
Adam’s Likeness now efface,
Stamp thy Image in its Place;
Second Adam from above,
Work it in us by thy Love.

Hark! The herald-angels sing:
“Glory to the new-born king!” +

~ Charles Wesley, George Whitefield, et al.
