Is Timothy Gordon a better Scholar than Anti-Constitution Ryan Grant who writes for 1P5?

On December 27, 2019, in Twitter, author of "Catholic Republic" Timothy Gordon said:

"Jefferson and Madison read Bellarmine."

On the same day, on the same Twitter thread Ryan Grant responded to Gordon:

"There is no evidence that either Madison or Jefferson read Bellarmine directly."

Italilo-Americano confirmed Gordon's scholarship that Jefferson read Bellarmine:

"In the Library of Congress may be found Thomas Jefferson's personal copy of Patriarcha, full of annotations on the democratic principles of Robert Bellarmine."
(Italilo-Americano.org, "The Spiritual Father of the Declaration of Independence [St. Robert Bellarmine]," July 8, 2013)

Taylor Marshall YouTube show guest and One Peter Five writer Grant believes that the U.S. Constitution should be "eviscerated" or gutted:

"Ferrara does not argue that the entire constitution must be eviscerated (although I do personally, but that is neither here nor there)."
(Distributist online, "Liberty the God that Failed Part 1, in comment section, By Ryan Grant)

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate of Mary.

These Young Turk, cigar smoking, chest thumping wannabe homiez of Christendom don’t have a syllable of thought interesting to me.

Sir Skojec, knight of the valley of the sun, blowing smoke in my face on his dark room, massive stogied YouTube hero shot sums it up for these bad boys.

More like Beavis and Bhead. ”Heh Heh Heh! Nice cigar, man. Heh, heh, heh. I prefer the Bolivar. Heh heh heh. Partagás. Heh heh heh. And Koval Bourbon 12 year to wash it down. Heh. Nice! Heh

Perfect fellows for times like these.

I prefer St. John Chrysostom myself. For the return of Tradition, less cigars and whisky, and more ascetic locust eating Saints confronting Empress Eudoxias to their face!

Well said, Aqua! I just don't understand the cigar smoking selfie videos. Is it some kind of machismo? You described it accurately, perhaps, as "chest thumping." Again, thank you for the thoughtful comments.

Marinaio: Thank you.

I pray this crisis in the Catholic Church (decades in the making, centuries perhaps) will produce a burning purifying fire to cleanse the Body to care only for all things Holy, bound by love for Jesus Christ and His Blessed Mother.

Dissension, division, anger and grudges will fade away when we become less, and He becomes more.

I couldn’t get the portrait of St. John Chrysostom confronting the Empress Eudoxias to copy (link only) but I imagine he was “chest thumping” himself (perhaps) in his Royal confrontation ... but of a completely different type: anguish, sorrow, zeal on behalf of the holiness of God amid gross transgression driven by his advocacy of asceticism amidst growing debauchery.

In short - zeal (chest thumping) on behalf of God and God’s commandments, and not his own person, honor, public image and financial business model.

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
