Blessed Franz Jägerstätter, Martyr (1906-1943)

Blessed Franz Jagerstatter

Today, June 7th, the universal Church celebrates Blessed Franz Jagerstatter, Catholic husband, father, and martyr for Our Lord Jesus Christ, for His Catholic Faith.

Franz was born in St. Radegund in Upper Austria in 1906. His father died in World War I. His mother, Rosalie Huber, married Heinrich Jägerstätter who thereafter adopted Franz. He was a rowdy young man, enjoying riding his motorcycle since he lead a gang. In 1934, he was arrested for “brawling.” He worked in a mine for three years and then returned to St. Radegund. Franz married Franziska, became a farmer and changed his life around, wherein he lived his Catholic Faith with passion and great love.

In 1938, Franz opposed in public Nazi Germany’s annexation of Austria, known as the Anschluss. In 1939, he was drafted into the Austrian army and after seven months, received a deferment. In 1940, once again he was called to serve in the army, but at the behest of the mayor, he was able to return home. Between October 1940 and April 1941, he once again was called to active service; but, he was again deferred.

In February of 1943, he was ordered to report to serve in the Nazi army in Enns, Austria. However, Franz refused to take the oath of loyalty to Hitler. Accordingly, he was imprisoned in Linz. He volunteered to serve in the medical corps, but that request was denied.

While Franz suffered imprisonment, he wrote this tender message to Franziska: “Easter is coming and, if it should be God’s will that we can never again in this world celebrate Easter together in our intimate family circle, we can still look ahead in the happy confidence that, when the eternal Easter morning dawns, no one in our family circle shall be missing – so we can then be permitted to rejoice together forever.”

In May, he was sent to a prison in Berlin. There, he once again wrote Franziska: “Dear wife and mother: I thank you once more from my heart for everything that you have done for me in my lifetime, for all the sacrifices that you have borne for me. I beg you to forgive me if I have hurt or offended you, just as I have forgiven everything. My heartfelt greetings for my dear children. I will surely beg the dear God, if I am permitted to enter heaven soon, that he will set aside a little place in heaven for all of you.”

On August 9, 1943, Franz was beheaded and on August 10th, he was cremated. In 1946, his ashes were reburied in St. Radegund near a memorial inscribed with his name and the names of approximately 60 village men who died serving in the military.

On October 26, 2007, in Linz, he was beatified. His clear testament and witness is now in Rome’s St. Bartholomew Church, as part of a shrine to many 20th century martyrs who died for their Catholic Faith. During his beatification Mass, Cardinal Jose Saraiva Martins quoted Giorgio La Pira, 20th century mayor of Florence, as follows:

“The holiness of our century will have this characteristic. It will be a holiness of laypeople. We encounter on the streets those who within 50 years may be on the altars–along the streets, in factories, in parliament and in university classrooms.”

Dear Blessed Franz Jägerstätter, we admire your courage and conviction, your absolute love of Our Lord, His Catholic Faith and His people, laying down your life for the Truth, refusing to participate in Hitler’s demonic activities. We will always remember your example and try to live our Faith, in spite of severe opposition and persecution. Blessed Franz, please pray for us and assist us!

Respectfully and with Love,

Joan

99% of Philadelphia wards voted for Obama!

With tongue in cheek, I used to tell my students how one-party dictatorships are more democratic than the United States. Not only do one-party dictatorships like Nazi Germany and Communist China have elections, they have 100% voter turnout and the One Party gets all the votes!

Case in point:

Did you know that Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany after his National Socialist Party won only one-third of the votes in the election of 1932? (In the election’s first round of voting, the Nazi Party received 30.1% of total votes; in the second round, its take was 36.8%.)

The election of 1932 turned out to be the last competitive election in Germany until after the Second World War.

Two years later, in 1934, Hitler’s main opponent Paul von Hindenburg died. Hindenburg had become Germany’s President in 1932 when his Independent Party won an absolute majority of votes of 53%. Upon Hinderburg’s death, Hitler abolished the office of the presidency entirely, and replaced it with the new position of Führer und Reichskanzler (“Leader and Reich Chancellor”), thereby cementing his dictatorship.

But like all one-party dictatorships, Hitler went through the pretense of having a national plebiscite to let the German people approve or disapprove of his power consolidation.

On August 19, 1934, about 95% of registered voters in Germany went to the polls and gave Hitler 38 million votes of approval or 90% of the vote. Thus Adolf Hitler could claim he was Führer of the German nation by direct will of the people. Hitler now wielded absolute power in Germany, beyond that of any previous traditional head of state. He had become, in effect, the law unto himself. [Source]

The day after the national plebiscite, on August 20, 1934, mandatory loyalty oaths to Hitler were introduced throughout the Reich.

The point I was making to my students was to be suspicious of any politician (or party) who garners votes of incredibly high percentages, such as Hitler’s 90% in 1934.

Why?

Because human beings are naturally disagreeable and contentious and, thus, for 90-100% of us to agree on anything is the height of improbability, which suggests the vote’s been rigged.

Flash forward 78 years to the 2012 Election in the U.S.A.

Did you know that in 2008 Barry Soetoro Obama got a remarkable 85% of the vote in Philadelphia? But in 2012, he did even better! On November 6, 2012, B. S. Obama got – GASP! — 99% or more of the votes cast in 13 of Philadelphia’s wards!!!!!!!!

What an astonishing miraculous accomplishment! As Kris Zane of The Western Center for Journalism puts it, that accomplishment is especially amazing considering Philadelphia’s record unemployment, record homicide rate, and an Obama-induced economy that has literally bankrupted the city!

Zane reminds us: “As reported in the Wikileaks Stratfor email dump earlier this year, the Obama campaign was engaged in massive ballot stuffing in Philadelphia and Ohio, more than likely by sabotaging voting machines and then having ’emergency’ ballots ready to switch with backup paper ballots.”

Zane points out that “The mainstream media tried to downplay the massive amount of voting machines problems, but there were reported problems from coast to coast.”

So did Obama do the same thing on a nationwide scale as the vote-rigging in Philadelphia?

Americans cheered Gen. Patton when he urinated on the enemy

When Patton urinated on the enemy they cheered him

By Robert K. Wilcox
(Wilcox is my friend and the author of Target: Patton: The Plot to Assassinate General George S. Patton. He served in the U.S. Air Force for 6 years as an information officer during the Vietnam War from 1968 to 1974. ~Eowyn)
The last soldier I heard of urinating on the enemy was Gen. George S. Patton. Should the general, who, as much as any other, was responsible for defeating the Nazis, have been driven from the military for such and act? You’d think so from the hysteric response building in the mainstream and Left-leaning press to a video allegedly showing marines urinating on dead Taliban fighters. Presuming it’s authentic, such reaction is absurd.
We send these young men out to kill and maim their enemy. That means snuffing out their life, with all the heartbreak and tragedy involved. They usually do this with bullets that rip and tear; or larger projectiles like grenades, artillery shells, or air-dropped bombs which can shred or disintegrate a body. Often fire is involved. Is urinating on a dead body worse?
Yet as I write I can feel the hope and purpose in a headline like AOL-Huffington Post’s, “Outrage over Purported Marine Video: A shocking video that allegedly shows American soldiers performing a ‘disgusting’ act sparks a US Marine Corps investigation.”  It’s already tagged under “atrocities” and “war crimes.” What the headline writers are really saying is, “Oh please, please, another Mai Lai Massacre type scandal like in Vietnam. Well, we know it’s not going to be that big, but we can again throw bad light on the US military, which we basically hate and fear and are mad at for doing all the bad things they do.”
Of course they’ve gone to the Council on American-Islamic Relations for comment. As if they didn’t know they’d get a condemnation. But did they balance it with someone at war with the Taliban? Not a chance. And the statement says, “The video shows behavior…totally unbecoming of American military personnel and that would ultimately endanger other soldiers and civilians.”
It’s so predictable, petty, and blown out of proportion by a media that largely knows nothing of the battlefield and why a crude but ultimately innocuous act like this might happen. What do they expect in war? Tea and crumpets and the Marquess of Queensbury rules? War is hell. Most of those fighting it are young, usually 18 to 22. They are inexperienced. They are sent to deserts and other uninhabitable places with stinging insects, maddening heat and sanitary conditions the Left would be screaming was child abuse. They forge a bond with each other few peacetime friendships can ever hope to equal. They have to. It’s the only way to get through. And some of them, if not more, see that bonded friend killed or mutilated as only war can do it.
No one who has not gone through it will understand the depth of a combat relationship. There are no phonies in a firefight; no pretense of who one is. You can’t cover up. Combat soldiers get to know each other very well. That breeds the bond – that and the dire situation combatants share. And when that bond is ended in the most brutal way, by the death or maiming of a buddy in the bond, pissing on the bastard who represents that end is small payback for the tragic loss and what else has been commonly endured.
Is that what happened in the video in question? We don’t know at this point. It’s possible. But even if not, what’s on the video isn’t an atrocity or war crime. It’s a logical rarity by young men in harms way against what they know to be the threat that can snuff any one of them or their buddies if the tables were turned. How quick we forget the blood curdling screams of Nick Berg and Daniel Pearl. Are urinations on lifeless bodies anything near that?

Patton urinating into the Rhine


Gen. Patton did his public urinating not on a dead body but into the enemy’s most famous river, The Rhine. His Third Army was the first Allied army to cross it and take the war on the ground past that last German barrier. A photographer caught the act as Patton stood in the middle of a pontoon bridge and directed his stream defiantly into the enemy’s larger one – like a dog marking its territory. War is a dirty business, with minimum rules for the living, notably the Geneva Convention, prisoner of war dictates the Taliban, by the way, does not recognize. But as repugnant as they may be to some, there are no rules for the dead, for that is the point of war.
Pile them up, let them rot, piss on them. Like it or not, it’s what happens in such a nasty business. Don’t make more of it than what can be expected when young men are sent to kill others.

Obama Hires New Minister of Propaganda

Nazi Germany had a Minister of Propaganda, the infamous Joseph Goebbels. His full title was Reich Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda (Volksaufklärung und Propaganda).
Meet Jesse Lee, Obama’s propaganda minister, whose formal title is Director of Progressive Media and Online Response.
A week ago, on May 23, 2011, the White House appointed 31-year-old Jesse Lee to the newly created position “to help maintain the President’s online presence as he prepares for his 2012 Presidential reelection bid.”
Clearly, Lee means to be Obama’s Rottweiler because his first tweet about his new position included a picture of the demonic red-eyed cyborg assassin, the Terminator.
Formerly Obama’s Online Programs Director, Lee’s new duties as Director of Progressive Media and Online Response Propaganda Minister include “dealing with negative or factually incorrect stories about Obama” — a task formerly handled by the Democratic National Committee’s rapid response team.
Lee even has his own webpage on WhiteHouse.gov.
Lee is experienced with the Internet. As Obama’s Online Programs Director, appointed February 23, 2009, Lee ran the Whitehouse.gov website and innovated techniques to engage individuals on the Internet.  Before that, he was hired to do Internet work for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in 2003; worked in their online division from 2004 to 2006; was Senior New Media Advisor to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in the 110th Congress; performed online response for the DNC during the 2008 presidential election; and did online outreach in the New Media department of Obama’s presidential transition team.
In September 2009, Lee defended Obama against criticism from Glenn Beck by claiming that Beck and Fox News lie. At the time, Jim Kuhnhenn of the Associated Press noted that “calling a news networks’ assertions ‘lies’ is unusually confrontational”.
That modus operandus is a harbinger of Jesse Lee, the propaganda minister. As Paul Joseph Watson of Prison Planet.com writes on May 24, 2011, “White House Hires ‘Terminator’ To ‘Squash Negative Stories’ About Obama“:

In a bid to ‘squash negative stories’ about Barack Obama that appear on the Internet, the White House has hired a dedicated propagandist whose role will be to savage people who tell “lies” about the President, in a chilling reminder of how prosecutors threatened people with jail time during the 2008 campaign if they criticized Obama.

“The Obama administration has created and staffed a new position tucked inside their communications shop for helping coordinate rapid response to unfavorable stories and fostering and improving relations with the progressive online community,” reports the Huffington Post.

The man tasked with the role of “disseminating push back” against Obama’s online critics by direct order of the White House will be Jesse Lee, a blogger who has previously put out White House spin in response to claims made by Glenn Beck.

“The post is a new one for this White House. Rapid response has been the purview of the Democratic National Committee (and will continue to be). Lee’s hire, however, suggests that a portion of it will now be handled from within the administration. It also signals that the White House will be adopting a more aggressive engagement in the online world in the months ahead.”

[…] “If you’re going to post something online about Obama that isn’t true, Lee is going to be the one to handle you,” reports Chris O’Shea, noting that the move is about “squashing any negative stories” that could derail Obama’s re-election bid.

Lee obviously sees himself taking the role of ‘Terminator’ in destroying ‘conspiracies’ and ‘disinformation’ about the Obama 2012 campaign, similar to how Obama-supporting prosecutors and sheriffs in Missouri threatened people with jail time for telling “lies” about Obama during the 2008 campaign. News agencies in Pennsylvania and Ohio were also sent threatening letters demanding they stop airing ads exposing Obama’s anti-gun stance.

This has nothing to do with circulating “lies” about Obama, this is about intimidating, silencing and smearing anyone who dares tell the truth about Obama’s record or his highly dubious personal history.

Fellow conservative bloggers! You are forewarned!
Put on the armor of God and get ready for the Battle of Helm’s Deep against the onslaught of Orcs and Uruk’hai.

Is "Moderate Muslims" A Meaningful Concept?

Why the Peaceful Majority is Irrelevant
By Paul Marek – February 20, 2006

She misses the point: Her job is to prevent the fanatics from hijacking her faith.


I used to know a man whose family were German aristocracy prior to World War II. They owned a number of large industries and estates. I asked him how many German people were true Nazis, and the answer he gave has stuck with me and guided my attitude toward fanaticism ever since.
Very few people were true Nazis,” he said, “but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.”
We are told again and again by experts and talking heads that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unquantified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.
The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars world wide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or execute honor killings. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. The hard, quantifiable fact is that the “peaceful majority” is the “silent majority,” and it is cowed and extraneous.
Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China’s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people. The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a war-mongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across Southeast Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians – most killed by sword, shovel and bayonet. And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery? Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were “peace loving”?
History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt; yet, for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points. Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by the fanatics. Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don’t speak up, because, like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.
Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Bosnians, Afghanis, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians and many others, have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. As for us, watching it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts: the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

The author of this essay is Paul Marek, a Canadian Jew. The essay was first published on February 20, 2006, in his blog Celestial Junk, re-published in 2007 by the IsraelNationalNews website, after which something weird happened. The essay was altered, posted on various blogs, and disseminated via e-mail under a new title “A German’s View on Islam,” with its authorship deliberately misattributed to an alleged German psychiatrist named Dr. Emanuel Tanay. That is not true (See TruthOrFiction).
The real Dr. Emanuel Tanay, while a forensic psychiatrist, is  not German but an American who is a Holocaust survivor born in Poland. Nor did the real Tanay write the essay.
Whoever altered the essay’s title and deliberately misattributed its authorship to “a German named Dr. Emanuel Tanay” probably did so under the mistaken and lamentable belief that a German author would give the essay more credibility and that identifying Marek as the author would detract from the essay’s merits.
H/t beloved fellow FS.
