Hoooo: NYT says the quiet part out loud on the impossibility of green agenda

“Over the past year, electric utilities have nearly doubled their forecasts of how much additional power they’ll need by 2028 as they confront an unexpected explosion in the number of data centers, an abrupt resurgence in manufacturing driven by new federal laws, and millions of electric vehicles being plugged in.

“Many power companies were already struggling to keep the lights on, especially during extreme weather, and say the strain on grids will only increase. Peak demand in the summer is projected to grow by 38,000 megawatts nationwide in the next five years, according to an analysis by the consulting firm Grid Strategies, which is like adding another California to the grid.
““The numbers we’re seeing are pretty crazy,” said Daniel Brooks, vice president of integrated grid and energy systems at the Electric Power Research Institute, a nonprofit organization.
“In an ironic twist, the swelling appetite for more electricity, driven not only by electric cars but also by battery and solar factories and other aspects of the clean-energy transition, could also jeopardize the country’s plans to fight climate change.”

Eleven Years Later: Quick summation of all the reasons Bergoglio is not now, nor ever was, nor ever will be Pope

Eleven years ago today, nothing happened. An invalid conclave held an invalid election. That is all. -nvp

Originally posted January 13, 2023

Let’s review:

Canon 188: A resignation made out of grave fear that is inflicted unjustly or out of malice, substantial error, or simony is invalid by the law itself.


  1. Substantial Error renders a resignation invalid by the law itself
  2. If Pope Benedict thought he could remain in any way “papal” AFTER his resignation, that would certainly rise to the level of Substantial Error (either you are pope, or you aren’t pope)
  3. Visual evidence of “papal” feels: Retained white cassock, retained Fisherman’s Ring, retained residence in the Vatican, retained papal name, retained form of address “His Holiness,” retained the Apostolic Blessing.
  4. Written evidence of the “impossibility” of truly stepping down: Last General Audience on 27 Feb 2013, and Abp. Ganswein’s speech at the Gregorian on 20 May 2016. HERE and HERE
  5. Do you think he intended to remain papal IN ANY WAY? YES OR NO?

Can. 331 The bishop of the Roman Church, in whom continues the office given by the Lord uniquely to Peter, the first of the Apostles, and to be transmitted to his successors, is the head of the college of bishops, the Vicar of Christ, and the pastor of the universal Church on earth. By virtue of his office he possesses supreme, full, immediate, and universal ordinary power in the Church, which he is always able to exercise freely.

Can. 332 §1. The Roman Pontiff obtains full and supreme power in the Church by his acceptance of legitimate election together with episcopal consecration. Therefore, a person elected to the supreme pontificate who is marked with episcopal character obtains this power from the moment of acceptance. If the person elected lacks episcopal character, however, he is to be ordained a bishop immediately.

§2. If it happens that the Roman Pontiff resigns his officeit is required for validity that the resignation is made freely and properly manifested but not that it is accepted by anyone.

Can. 333 §1. By virtue of his office, the Roman Pontiff not only possesses power over the universal Church but also obtains the primacy of ordinary power over all particular churches and groups of them. Moreover, this primacy strengthens and protects the proper, ordinary, and immediate power which bishops possess in the particular churches entrusted to their care.

§2. In fulfilling the office of supreme pastor of the Church, the Roman Pontiff is always joined in communion with the other bishops and with the universal Church. He nevertheless has the right, according to the needs of the Church, to determine the manner, whether personal or collegial, of exercising this office.


  1. The papacy is an OFFICE (the Latin text of these canons has it as muneri/munere)
  2. If the Roman Ponitiff resigns his OFFICE… but wait, he resigned the Ministry instead (ministerio…renuntiare “I renounce the ministry”)
  3. It must be properly manifested, but it wasn’t, neither in formula HERE nor in practice
  4. It must be made freely… jury is out on that one, but at least the ATMs and credit cards started working again inside the Vatican the following day
  5. Who accepts the resignation means nothing, acceptance has no bearing on validity

Do you think that Pope Benedict didn’t know Canon Law? That he didn’t know, in particular Canon 332.2, the canon which specifically governs Papal resignations?

Now that we are in an Interregnum, could Bergoglio be confirmed as true pope? Well, if only he were Catholic, yes. It has happened before where the true pope dies, and then the antipope of the time is “grandfathered in,” so to speak.

But Bergoglio isn’t Catholic, because he is a public heretic, and public heretics are outside the Church. There is no way for him to hold any ecclesiastical office, let alone pope. We don’t need anyone in authority to tells us this, we have a duty to recognize it on our own, and call it out. Not only is he a manifest heretic on his own accord, he has also inserted heresy into the official magisterium of the Church, something which is entirely impossible for a true Vicar of Christ to do. All of this stands as a robust secondary dataset pointing back to the root cause of failed partial resignation of Pope Benedict.

The faux conclave that “elected” Bergoglio was invalid, because the true Roman Pontiff yet lived. But like putting a cherry on top, the conclave was doubly invalid, because the dirty dealings behind the scenes violated every rule in the book, making the election illegal anyway!

The number of different ways Bergoglio isn’t pope, and never has been, is truly astounding. As is the number of people who claim there is nothing to see here.

The fruit of the third sorrowful mystery (Crowning with Thorns) is Moral Courage. It wouldn’t take much.

Stay Confessed.

“The “always” is also a “forever” – there can no longer be a return to the private sphere. My decision to resign the active exercise of the ministry does not revoke this… I am not abandoning the cross, but remaining in a new way at the side of the crucified Lord. I no longer bear the power of office for the governance of the Church, but in the service of prayer I remain, so to speak, in the enclosure of Saint Peter.” HERE

Princess Kate and AI-gate… done on purpose?


Here is the Jeff Childers’ link to a much higher resolution version.

Not photoshopped, as initially claimed after the viralling. No, this entire thing is AI, except for the faces. Start with the hands/fingers… obviously AI. The background… have you ever used a fake backdrop on Zoom or Teams? That lighting on Kate’s knees, the anatomical impossibility of Charlotte’s knees, and finally the impossibility of Charlotte’s skirt.

Find more closeups HERE.

The question is, why? Beyond the obvious question of “Where’s Kate?”, one has to wonder the motive behind putting out this specimen. It is almost as if the purveyor did it with malice aforethought, but again, of what motive?

What do you think? The conspiracybox is open!

Boeing Whistleblower Found Dead…

Boeing Whistleblower Found Dead in Charleston After Break in Depositions

Boeing whistleblower John Barnett was found dead in his truck at a hotel in Charleston, South Carolina after a break in depositions in a whistleblower retaliation lawsuit.

That’s according to Barnett’s lawyer Brian Knowles.

In an email to Corporate Crime Reporter, Knowles wrote that Barnett “was supposed to do day three of his deposition here in Charleston on his AIR21 case.” (AIR21 refers to a federal law that provides whistleblower protection for employees in the aviation industry.)

“Today is a tragic day,” Knowles wrote. “John had been back and forth for quite some time getting prepared. The defense examined him for their allowed seven hours under the rules on Thursday. I cross examined him all day yesterday (Friday) and did not finish. We agreed to continue this morning at 10 a.m. (co-counsel) Rob (Turkewitz) kept calling this morning and his (Barnett’s) phone would go to voicemail. We then asked the hotel to check on him. They found him in his truck dead from an ‘alleged’ self-inflicted gunshot. We drove to the hotel and spoke with the police and the coroner.”

UPDATE March 9, 2024 by Teresa Newell

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His mercy endures forever.

Nunzi had a good day today. She talked, she laughed, she ate more applesauce. I got to the hospital this afternoon and she woke up from a nap. I said, “I love you!” She looked at me and said “I love Cobi!” (our dog) I was shocked that she responded, let alone with a full sentence. Laughing I confirmed, “did you just say I love Cobi?” And with great enthusiasm she nodded her head and exclaimed “Yah!!”

She was much more comfortable today, rolling, sleeping curled up on her tummy. Her strength continues to return.

We learned that her morphine wean will last the next eight days, and after that they will start her six day clonidine wean. They ended her antibiotics today. If I understand correctly the last thing keeping her on the general floor before moving to in patient therapy is the chest tube. As long as her xray looks good in the morning I believe they plan to take out the chest tube tomorrow.

Please pray that she face no more infections, that her body can absorb and deal with the remaining fluid around her lung, that her weanings are uneventful.

We are so grateful for every day with her, to witness her return to health. Thank you all for walking with us.

Holy Theotokos, Our Lady of the Annunciation, Saint Teresa of Calcutta, Saints Lucia and Hyacinth, Blessed Alvaro del Portilllo, pray for Nunzi.

Not-so-hidden faults: Root out Sloth from your life, especially if you’re a Prince of the Church

From How to Root Out Hidden Faults by Fr. James F. McElhone, via Laura Wood:

Too many persons are satisfied with mediocrity. They are neither good nor bad; they are ordinary, commonplace; and they remain so through their own fault. Let us glance over the various kinds of mediocrity and then determine whether or not we are ordinary, Some are mediocre in general. They have a lukewarm, careless attitude about everything. Their standard is ordinary in regard to spiritual things, studies, manual labor, to the proper attitude in recreation. They do not pray well or keep rules, they do not study with any real effort, they work in an indifferent way, they are slothful even in games. There are others who are lukewarm concerning some particular thing; they are ordinary in spiritual affairs, or studies, or manual labor, or recreation. Certain others are mediocre in a still more particular way; they practice obedience, or charity, or mortification, or rule-keeping in an ordinary way. They have a pronounced weakness, and seemingly sloth holds them in power, for they do not correct what is at fault; and the danger is that this one weakness will spread and become the cause of other falls. Those who are mediocre as far as studies are concerned have commonplace attention, or application, or willingness to learn, or effort. It may be they have a class to which they give no interest or very little; or they are neglecting a certain study that is hard for them. Those who are mediocre in regard to manual labor work in a careless or lazy fashion, being satisfied with indifferent results. Those who are mediocre in recreation commit the same faults time after time; they do not urge themselves to better things; they lack zeal in the correction of their faults; they remain uncharitable. Now, none of us would care to be mediocre in everything, but are there not any number of us who seem to be satisfied with mediocrity in a particular way? Sloth keeps us from perfection; sloth holds us back; sloth enters daily into some of the things we do.

“He who should speak seasonably will remain silent.”

“Unhappy times will come wherein those who should fearlessly defend the rights of the Church will instead, blinded despite the light, give their hand to the Church’s enemies and do their bidding. But when [evil] seems triumphant and when authority abuses its power, committing all manner of injustice and oppressing the weak, their ruin shall be near. They will fall and crash to the ground.

“Then will the Church, joyful and triumphant like a young girl, reawaken and be comfortably cradled in the arms of my most dear and elect son of those times. If he lends an ear to the inspirations of grace–one of which will be the reading of these great mercies that my Son and I have had toward you–we shall fill him with graces and very special gifts and will make him great on earth and much greater in Heaven. There we have reserved a precious seat for him because, heedless of men, he will have fought for truth and ceaselessly defended the rights of the Church, deserving to be called ‘martyr.’”

“At the end of the nineteenth century and throughout a great part of the twentieth, many heresies will be propagated in these lands.…

“The small number of souls who will secretly safeguard the treasure of Faith and virtues will suffer a cruel, unspeakable, and long martyrdom. Many will descend to their graves through the violence of suffering and will be counted among the martyrs who sacrificed themselves for the country and the Church.

“To be delivered from the slavery of these heresies, those whom the merciful love of my Son has destined for this restoration will need great will-power, perseverance, courage, and confidence in God. To try the faith and trust of these just ones, there will be times when all will seem lost and paralyzed. It will then be the happy beginning of the complete restoration….

“In those times the atmosphere will be saturated with the spirit of impurity which, like a filthy sea, will engulf the streets and public places with incredible license.… Innocence will scarcely be found in children, or modesty in women.

“He who should speak seasonably will remain silent.

“There shall be scarcely any virgin souls in the world. The delicate flower of virginity will seek refuge in the cloisters.…Without virginity, fire from heaven will be needed to purify these lands.…

“Sects, having permeated all social classes, will find ways of introducing themselves into the very heart of homes to corrupt the innocence of children. The children’s hearts will be dainty morsels to regale the devil.…

“Religious communities will remain to sustain the Church and work with courage for the salvation of souls.… The secular clergy will fall far short of what is expected of them because they will not pursue their sacred duty. Losing the divine compass, they will stray from the way of priestly ministry mapped out for them by God and will become devoted to money, seeking it too earnestly.

“Pray constantly, implore tirelessly, and weep bitter tears in the seclusion of your heart, beseeching the Eucharistic Heart of my most holy Son to take pity on His ministers and to end as soon as possible these unhappy times by sending to His Church the Prelate who shall restore the spirit of her priests.”
