Do you think the midterm elections don’t matter? George Soros disagrees with you. Soros has donated $128.5 million to Democracy PAC, $10.5 million of which went to Senate Majority PAC, a super PAC controlled by Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer. Soros also gave $1 million to J Street Action Fund and Planned Parenthood’s super PAC.

In this edition of The Remnant Underground, Michael Matt lays out a new course of action in the wake of YouTube’s decision to take Remnant TV off the air.
Citing National Public Radio’s diabolical decision to broadcast an abortion live, Michael warns that America is facing the end of the world as we know it. Here’s why the midterm elections actually do matter this time…perhaps more than ever before in the history of this country.
In a stirring rallying cry to the clans around the world, Michael challenges RTV viewers to do the right thing, to keep hope alive, and to make this moment a defining moment of change for all those who are still willing to do whatever it takes to save this nation, to save the family, and to become the fighters for truth that God is calling us all to be.
DE HOC MUNDO
The “secularization” of authority
as a premise for religious freedom and ecumenical dialogue theorized by Vatican II
Regnum meum non est de hoc mundo. "My kingdom is not of this world." - Jn 18:36
“The 2023 Synod is shaping up into hostile takeover of the Church. If they succeed, it will be the end of the Catholic Church.”
~Cardinal Gerhard Müller World Over EWTN, October 6, 2022
“The synodal process has begun disastrously in Germany, and matters will become worse unless we soon have effective papal corrections on, for instance, Christian sexual morality, women priests, etc…some faithful German Catholics are already talking, not of the synodal way, but the suicidal way.”
~Cardinal Pell October 13, 2022
“The synodal process is being manipulated in the hands of high ranking Vatican officials to push their ideological agenda. Many bishops are concerned that there is a pre-established agenda in Rome. This process is a tool to coverup a pre-established agenda and we have to be very concerned.”
~Bishop Athanasius Schneider October 22, 2022 World Over
The Atlantic’s October 31, 2022 article advocating for forgiving each other about “Covid-related mistakes,” Let’s Declare a Pandemic Amnesty, has understandably garnered considerable pushback from those who actually recall what transpired during what Biden called the “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”
Introduction by Michael Matt: I’m happy to introduce my great-grandfather, Hugo Klapproth, and his “new” book, Letters to a Protestant Friend. Full disclosure: The book is new only to English-speaking readers living 130 years after it was published in German here in St. Paul, Minnesota. I hope to have the book available for sale here at The Remnant before Christmas 2022.
Apart from a thoughtful historical piece, this little book also makes a masterful contribution to Catholic apologetics. As a convert from Lutheranism and a professional newspaper editor, Hugo Klapproth’s arguments to his Lutheran friend are some of the most effective I have ever read. Mary “worship,” Faith alone, sola scriptura, the papacy, the “non-biblical” roots of purgatory and the Sacrament of Confession – all the go-to Protestant arguments are refuted with expert biblical exegesis, considerable historical acumen, and the patient approach of one who was once a Protestant.
In his letters, we discover arguments – old and new – that remind us of how and why the Catholic Church, no matter how sinful her members might be, is nevertheless the spotless bride of Jesus Christ. And as such, the Catholic men of yesterday, such as Klapproth, would surely be included in the ranks of the traditionalists today.
Writing 130 years ago, Hugo Klapproth is a traditional Catholic pioneer. The Traditions he defends in his day are the same we defend in ours. The Mass he attends is the same Latin Mass we attend today. The Catholic teachings he champions in 1895 are the same we champion in 2022.
Nothing has changed. God is still in His heaven, and His Church is still the one true Church of Jesus Christ. From his grave, Hugo Klapproth reminds us all that we can never leave the Church. We are called by God to stay and fight, to survive and to hand down the Faith of our fathers to our sons, exactly as our fathers handed it down to us. Our task remains the same.
What follows is an excerpt from the book, Letters to a Protestant Friend, on visiting the graves of the departed. Look for the full book this Fall, available at The Remnant Newspaper. MJM

QUESTION: With 90-year-old Joseph Cardinal Zen on trial this week for defying the Chinese Communist Government, where's the Vatican? Why is pope Francis not speaking out in Zen's defense?
In this episode of The Remnant Underground, Michael takes a look at this question, as well as the ramifications of two recent developments:
1) Elon Musk takes control of Twitter and the revival of free speech is underway
2) New York Supreme Court rules that the jab does not stop the spread of Covid
Both of these developments come as a threat to the globalists, including Team Francis inside the Vatican, especially where Number 2 is concerned. If Tony Fauci needs to be help responsible for crimes against humanity, certainly so too should Pope Francis.
How with its own self-referentiality the “conciliar church” places itself outside of the path of the Tradition of the Church of Christ
With the prosopopoeia that distinguishes ideological propaganda, the recent Bergoglian panegyric (here) on the occasion of the sixtieth anniversary of the Opening of the Ecumenical Council Vatican II did not fail to confirm, beyond the empty rhetoric, the total self-referentiality of the “conciliar church,” that is, of that subversive organization born almost imperceptibly from the Council and which in these sixty years has almost totally eclipsed the Church of Christ by occupying her highest levels and usurping her authority.
“Man’s schemes are inferior to those made by heaven.” ~Chinese Proverb
No one rains on Chairman’s Xi Jinping’s reign. On October 22, 2022, at the CCP 20th Party Congress, Chinese President Xi Jinping was elected to another term, adding another five years to his previously served 10 year presidency. Xi will remain in the politically powerful position as General Secretary of the CCP. His stated goal of Emperor for Life is now firmly established, unimpeded by a certain human rights trial in Hong Kong.
In his October 19, 2022 opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal, Daniel Henninger predicted a red wave victory for the Republicans in the upcoming midterm elections. Indeed, if we simply consider the most pressing election issues Henninger described, we might expect all informed voters to vote for Republicans:

In this episode of The Remnant Underground, Michael Matt looks at November's midterm elections from the viewpoint of the globalists. The world is watching. The Vatican is watching. The World Economic Forum is watching. Will the midterms matter? How so when for so long the ballot box has been little more than a suggestion box for the slaves?
The World Economic Forum (WEF), advocates of globalization for decades, now say there is a world-wide trust problem. Trust was a major focus for the WEF in 2022, where they attempted to reposition themselves as outsiders.
“To summarize: in a world which is becoming more fragmented and more divided, and where many of the traditional multilateral organizations tend to become dysfunctional or at least mistrustful, a global platform based on informal, trust-based and action-oriented cooperation such as the World Economic Forum and Davos will be ever more needed” (Schwab, 2022).
