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.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

High-profile Lawyer Barnes: Amy Coney Barrett would be a Disaster

High-profile trial lawyer Robert Barnes who deals in civil, criminal and constitutional law reported on Twitter that Amy Coney Barrett would be a disaster. The Barnes Twitter report shows that Coney Barrett has " sid[ed] with the government on the lockdowns, on uncompensated takings, on excusing First Amendment infringements & Fourth Amendment violations... [and] exclaimed the benefits of Jacobson, the decision that green-lit forced vaccines & carved out an emergency exception to Constitutional protection in "public health" or "emergency" cases used to justify forced sterilizations & detention camps... [and] hid behind precedent... to prohibit pro-life activists from exercising their free speech ." The Avvo.com lawyer directory reports that attorney "Robert Barnes embraces the challenge to defend the little guy and stand up for what is right. This is why he left the prestigious Yale Law School, whom publicly stated their unwill

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b
