A couple of nights ago (June 20, 2020), the skateboard-wielding, peaceful-protesting representatives of the Lamest Generation in American history managed, in their inconsolable grief, to stumble upon an old statue of the father of modern Freemasonry (video below)--Grand Master Albert Pike.
With no real idea who he was, the brave Statue Killers knocked down old Albert, scribbled a few F-words on the stone base of his statue and set him on fire.
So much for the Brotherhood of Man!
The irony was rich, of course, but lost on our benighted rebels without a clue, who evidently thought they were sticking it to Christian America by knocking down the statue of the man the late, great Solange Hertz described in the pages of The Remnant as a "Luciferian high priest."
Albert Pike (along with the "Goddess of Freemasonry" that rested at his feet) had been honored in the Judiciary Square neighborhood for 120 years. Back in 1901, a dedication ceremony included thousands of Masons marching in a celebratory parade in honor of their most cherished son.
Little did they know that one day the Catholic-bashing, Christophobic mob they'd incited worldwide would tear their Grand Master apart and burn him in effigy.
Note the symbol for Anarchy on Pike's left hand.
It was said of Pike that he "found Freemasonry in a log cabin and left it in a Temple", since he is buried in the House of the Temple, headquarters of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, at 16th and S Streets NW, in Washington, D.C.
Some of the old legends of the Swamp (on which Washington, D.C. was built) say that the reason the buildings in our nation's capital are so low to the ground (no skyscrapers) is because by law none can rise above the "sacred monument" of Pike's Tomb.
Whether or not this is true, the city's love affair with Freemasonry is hardly the stuff of legend. Masonry is carved into the very stone, and Albert Pike is venerated like a god. Or at least he used to be, until the new Sons of Liberty knocked him into anarchy.
Grandmaster Albert Pike is the anti-Evangelist of American Freemasonry, having penned the de facto Bible of Freemasonry -- his 1871 masterwork"Morals and Dogma", which is described by Freemasons as a "huge manual for the instruction of the Rite, as much a compilation as a composition... which remains to this day a monument of learning... containing the best Masonic thinking and writing in our literature." (MasonicDictionary.com)
He was, according to the Masonic Dictionary, "the master genius of Masonry in America, both as scholar and artist. No other mind of equal power ever toiled so long in the service of the Craft in the New World. No other has left a nobler fame in our annals."
For her part, the Catholic Church condemned old Albert's Freemasonry with the full weight of her authority for the past two hundred years, with more popes warning against the secret society than any other single organization.
Pope Leo XIII in his encyclical, Humanum Genus, and elsewhere, the 1917 Code of Canon Law (Pius X—Benedict XV) provided, in Canon 2335, as follows:
All those who enroll their names in the sect of Freemasons or similar associations which plot against the Church or legitimate civil authorities, incur by this very fact the penalty of excommunication, absolution from which is reserved simply to the Holy See.
In bizarre poetic justice, old Albert Pike has been cut down by the very same mob that sent Robespierre to Madame Guillotine when the first Reign of Terror kicked things off in France a couple of hundred years ago. Pike, like Robespierre before him, had devoted his life to the Masonic principles of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. But, then as now, the mob was singularly unimpressed, proving once again that, sooner or later, Christophobia always leads to anarchy.
The question is, who's next? George Washington's iconic monument? The Statue of Liberty? Lady Liberty perched high atop the dome of our nation's capitol? We'll have to wait and see as the Revolution continues to consume itself.
In the meantime, Long Live Christ the King!
Dear Bishops of Scotland,
I am writing to respectfully upbraid all of you in the Scottish hierarchy for abandoning Christ's flock during this Covid-19 pandemic, which, as statistical evidence is now increasingly proving, was never a serious health threat to the majority of Scotland's 5.5 million population, or indeed any other population.
Nowhere in the annals of Church history, even through periods of war and plague, is there another example of Catholic prelates ordering a national suspension of public Masses and devotions under any pretext.
A hearing by Skype was held today before the Honorable Gary L. Sharpe of the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York. The proceedings went well, and the Court has permitted final submissions on Monday, June 22 with a decision by next Friday on my motion for a temporary restraining order/preliminary injunction barring Cuomo and de Blasio from enforcing their limits on religious gatherings as presently constituted.
The hearing was largely taken up with the development that Cuomo and de Blasio have approved of mass demonstrations on behalf of George Floyd in every major city in New York State, with de Blasio even personally participating, while enforcing strict limits on other gatherings, above all religious gatherings.
I implore Remnant readers to keep praying for a just and speedy outcome in this very important case affecting the lives of 19 million people.
Editor’s Note: There seems to be civil war brewing in nearly every aspect of the Trump Administration just now. Leakers in the White House, mobs outside the West Wing, rabid Mitt Romneys on the loose, rumors of insurrection in the military and now even treachery in the Supreme Court.
This disheartening and foreboding SCOTUS decision comes just days after the Trump Administration had walked back an Obama-era anti-discrimination rule, preventing doctors from following their consciences when it came to abortion or so-called ‘sex change’ operations.
This welcome news means doctors will no longer risk losing their jobs or federal aid for refusing to comply with 'gender identity' politics.
“These orders, both the emergency stay-home and reopening plan declarations, clearly discriminate against houses of worship. They are illegally content-based, elaborate, arbitrary and pseudo-scientific." – Christopher Ferrara
Caleb Parke, FOX NEWS: "New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Attorney General Letitia James, and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio are using coronavirus restrictions as a "blatant double standard" to discriminate against people of faith, using threats of fines and criminal prosecution, according to a federal lawsuit filed Wednesday.
Two Catholic priests -- Steven Soos and Nicholas Stamos -- and a trio of Orthodox Jewish congregants -- Elchanan Perr, Daniel Schonborn, and Mayer Mayerfeld -- in Brooklyn, represented by the Thomas More Society, filed the suit in the Northern District of New York after mass protests and looting occurred in the Big Apple following George Floyd's death.
“Why is a large worship gathering deemed more dangerous than a mass protest, full of shouting, arm-waving people in close proximity to one another?” Christopher Ferrara, Thomas More Society special counsel, said in a statement to Fox News."

Pope Francis may see fit to ignore the words of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, but President Donald J. Trump does NOT!
Just when the news of the day seems to be allowing little room for hope that anything could ever reverse the disastrous course our world is currently following, no less a person than the President of the United States, and leader of arguably the most powerful nation on earth, tweeted his sincere gratitude to one of the most outspoken critics of Pope Francis in the Church today.
And as further proof that there is no such thing as a coincidence, this presidential tweet appears on the very day when Archbishop Viganò put the world on notice that his resistance is not merely to the radical pontificate of Pope Francis, but also to the entire modernist revolution in the Catholic Church, starting with its most important event, the Second Vatican Council.
Can this be anything other than a sign from God Himself that the Traditional Catholic counterrevolution has not been in vain, but indeed is now on the cusp of international vindication.
Don't lose hope, keep fighting, long live Christ the King!
So honored by Archbishop Viganò’s incredible letter to me. I hope everyone, religious or not, reads it! https://t.co/fVhkCz89g5— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 10, 2020
Check out the video version of this letter, which has now been read and endorsed by the President of the United States:
Text of Petition from ChildrensHealthDefense.org:
Dear New York State Bar Association,
Please reconsider the Health Law Task Force Report on COVID-19 that recklessly recommends that all New York State residents must receive mandatory vaccination “when the efficacy of a COVID-19 vaccine has been confirmed.” This recommendation would violate citizens’ fundamental rights to bodily integrity, free exercise of religion, parental rights, informed consent, the right to refuse unwanted medical treatment and other constitutional rights. Such a mandate would sow distrust and meet overwhelming resistance.
Reflection for Daily Mass - June 3, 2020 – 2 Tim 1:1-3, 6-12; Mark 12:18-27
The feast of St. Charles Lwanga and Companions, Martyrs
Today marks the history of reopening the Church in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. The reopening of the church is a symbol of our winning over the darkness that comes through the pandemic. The power of the darkness has been thrown out and the power of the light has shone its light again. At the end of every storm, comes calmness. And we hope that the pandemic will not come back, or even if it will, we will be stronger in the faith and power of God.
In the article linked here, a Roman canon lawyer reproduces a letter of July 24, 2009 from the Congregation for Sacraments and Divine Worship.
The letter officially answers a query from a Catholic submitted during the 'swine flu' pandemic that killed around half a million people worldwide.
Below is a brief video message from Michael Matt to commemorate the Chartres Pilgrimage, which is taking place this weekend around the world in a very different way.
Michael Matt, US coordinator for Notre-Dame de Chrétienté, asks followers of the Remnant and Remnant TV to join him in prayer for our country under siege, and for the restoration of the Chartres Pilgrimage.
Here's how you can join:
An interesting part of the Covid silver lining is that people are beginning to look at a lot of things in an entirely different light: From the real agenda of the globalists, to the "Church of Accompaniment" (which has abandoned us), to the “humble pope” who couldn’t possibly be more self absorbed, to the real motivations behind the attempted destruction of the Latin Mass, to the importance of family interaction and less dependence on big government and now to home schooling.
Studies now show, in fact, that many parents who were dragooned quite unexpectedly into educating their children at home, have in recent weeks begun moving much closer to choosing the homeschool option even after the lockdown.
