-------- Forwarded Message -------- Subject: Fan mail from Quebec City, Canada Date: Sat, 27 Aug 2016 19:18:32 -0400 From: Stefan Jetchick To: Ann@ Good day Miss Ann Barnhardt, I've become quite a fan of your web site. I find it hard to imitate your courage and virility, and find it just as hard not to admire it, and I pray that someday I'll be able to follow in your brave footsteps! I do have some itty-bitty reservations about a few rare things on your web site. So if you're busy, don't bother reading the rest of this e-mail. Enjoy the compliments, and keep up the good work! * * * * * * * So far, I seem to have only a few disagreements with what I've read on your web site: - Only 15 mysteries for the Holy Rosary? - Is the "Bergoglio Fiasco" really mitigated if Benedict XVI is still Pope? - Are we really headed for a hot war? - Would the Barnhardt Axiom withstand Diogenes the Cynic? Please allow me to now dig down into each one of those topics.
You say: "the Most Holy Rosary – all 15 mysteries (You heard me. Fifteen. There are exactly FIFTEEN mysteries". I actually like to think there are TWENTY-FIVE mysteries! See The "Prepareful" Mysteries.
Ann holding a Rosary. Maybe she's reciting the Prepareful Mysteries?
I did try to follow your argument claiming that Bergoglio is not the current Pope. I do remember thinking this was pretty subtle stuff, not unlike a ballerina tip-toeing around in her ballet slippers. Normally I poke fun of such dancing, like for Hans Urs von Balthasar (although I'm sure you'd look much better than him in a ballerina outfit! ... Must... Keep ... Custody... Of... The... Imagination). I can't claim to be able to prove you are wrong. But even if you were right, I can't see how that would be much of an improvement. Benedict XVI has made several public declarations about Bergoglio that I would qualify as "brown-nosing". If Bergoglio is an antipope as you say, and Benedict XVI is still the real Pope, then Benedict XVI is an unmitigated a..hole for not publicly denouncing and condemning all the idiocies of Bergoglio. So even if Bergoglio is not Pope, we are still stuck with a terribly bad Pope who is sowing doctrinal confusion in the flock. Either way, I really like Fr. Hunwicke's explanations about the common cause of both "hyper-papalism" and "sedevacantism".
I send this link to a good buddy of mine: Barnhardt Interview with Creative Minority Report: Part 1, America is Dead I found his comment quite thoughtful, so I'll quote it verbatim. I also want to quote it completely, because it ties in with my final point about the Barnhardt Axiom: -------- Forwarded Message -------- Subject: Re: Wow, pretty dire stuff from Ann Barnhardt, and this was about a year ago already! Date: Fri, 19 Aug 2016 04:02:30 +0000 (UTC) From: [currently anonymous] To: Stefan Jetchick Hi Stefan, The old federal republic is dead. There's no doubt about that. When the oracles-in-chief at the U.S. Supreme Court can squint at the U.S. Constitution and conclude that this document, penned by our Christian forefathers, contains within its text a clear command that every state of the Union not only may but in fact must recognize the marriage of two men, you know that the basic idea of respect for the process of making and reading law is pretty far gone. The desired ends apparently justify any means. Our forefathers wrote that document in words which they earnestly believed could never be misunderstood. And yet. I am not saying that this was the coup de grace. Nor am I saying that the deterioration of the fabric of American culture is only -- or best -- reflected in the deterioration in our respect for the written word of law. It is simply one symptom among many of a disease that will destroy our nation and culture unless it is excised. "Preparation for the inevitable hot war". Possible, yes. But I still suspect that belief in a coming cataclysm, crisis, catastrophe, in SHTF, in a coming hot war, can be a form of wishful thinking: yearning for a final and cleansing climax which will not only end the tedious waiting, but will also mercifully bring matters to some sort of conclusion. At last, people hope, there will be a final showdown between good and evil: high noon in the Old West. All of the cards will be on the table. But I think it is somewhat more likely that things will just get shittier and shittier and shittier for a very long time. Western civilization will continue to deteriorate under the parasitic influence of socialism and neo-liberalism as more disciplined and pragmatic cultures take our place. There may be periodic crises and upheavals, yes, but the change of direction -- if it comes -- will not be through crisis. I have learned enough about Chinese history from my Chinese friends to know that even the worst crisis -- where things are as bad as they can get and civil society has completely broken down and people are starving and heads are rolling left and right -- even this kind of crisis does not bring any lasting conclusion. There is no such thing as "hitting bottom." The necessary work of changing a nation's spirit remains to be done even after the blood has dried and the dead are buried, just as much as it did before people went nuts. [My emphasis. See last point.] And that is where I hold out hope. The United States, and Western society in general has an indomitable spirit. Even if the old federal republic is dead, the ideas of republicanism are not dead yet. They will be rekindled somewhere. When Rome fell, and it looked like the entire heritage of classical antiquity would vanish from the earth, where did the flame of knowledge keep burning? In monasteries and friaries in distant, far-flung areas of the world which seemed (at least in 400 AD) like the very last places on earth that civilization would ever survive. Backwater places like Britannia. And even then the flame flickered very faintly for 1,000 years before growing bright again. Records show how tenuous a grasp the Church and civilization in general held over early medieval society. But the flame never died. As long as there is a candle of justice burning somewhere, I will be honored to call that place my home. Best, [currently anonymous]
Ann back in the days when she wasn't so cynical.
THE BARNHARDT AXIOM: The fact that a given person is holding or seeking high- level public office is, in and of itself, proof that said person is morally and/or psychologically UNFIT to hold public office. [Source: Are We Comprehending The Barnhardt Axiom YET??!!] When Zeno claimed to have proved that movement was impossible using his famous paradoxes, "Diogenes the Cynic said nothing upon hearing Zeno's arguments, but stood up and walked, in order to demonstrate the falsity of Zeno's conclusions." Wouldn't the Barnhardt Axiom be automatically disproved if you just got off your backside and sought high-level public office? (If you counter with arguments such as "The USA doesn't exist anymore", etc., I'll refer you back to the previous section, which explains why seeking public office in a dead or dying republic still makes sense.) God knows we need the Christ The King Party. Shouldn't you be participating in the foundation of such a political party? Thank you very much for all your hard work and courage! Stefan Jetchick

-------- Forwarded Message -------- Subject: Not important, just more fan mail, and a little question about the automatic consequences of the "Thermonuclear Substantial Error" Date: Wed, 30 Jan 2019 22:41:58 -0500 From: Stefan Jetchick To: Ann@ Hello again Miss Barnhardt, Yes, I understand you probably will never read this, and even if you did, you probably wouldn't have time to answer. I continue to follow the "Bergoglio Saga", and was very impressed by your recent find about Joseph Ratzinger's "Thermonuclear Substantial Error". But I was thinking this morning (while doing battle against what is gearing up to be another 2008-type snowfall record) that this is a massive error about the very nature of the papacy, and not only that, but a doctrinal error that Pope Benedict XVI has obstinately acted upon. Wouldn't that trigger a latae sententia excommunication on Benedict XVI? And if you fall from the Faith of Peter, you automatically fall from the Chair of Peter, right? So neither "Pope" Francis nor Benedict XVI would currently be Pope? Please keep up the good work. Stay humble as best you can, the Devil certainly want's you to fall, because you're causing great harm to his Evil Plan for the Great Apostasy. SJJ
