Mark Mallett on America

This is an intense new piece by the marvelous Mark Mallett. The vivid imagery is apocalyptic and might be a bit off-putting. I have read Mallett carefully for two years now. We have been friends since early this year. He is as solid as anyone I know and meticulous in his research. Of the things he covers here, I only have off-hand specific knowledge of about half of it, but that half is all solid.

His research is, as always, carefully grounded. One might quibble with him on the interpretation of some things (though the only quibble I have is a conditional one: when he quotes Gorbachev in the 1980s stating that perestroika was just for show, the quote is entirely accurate. But since Gorbachev was facing heavy internal pressures at home, one could make the case he was covering his flank. Either way, Gorbachev was dissembling to either the west or to the Politburo.) The quotes from the book, ‘The Naked Communist,’ published in 1958, are particularly chilling. When one publicly calls for a plan, the particulars of which, a mere two generations later, are solidly in place, it is rather compelling evidence for an organized and directed assault.

This is different from what Mallett usually publishes, but worthy of careful consideration. Mallett is a citizen of Canada, so it adds a certain interest in how he sees events in the United States.

Charlie Johnston is a former newspaper editor, radio talk show host and political consultant. From Feb. 11, 2011 to Aug. 21, 2012, he walked 3,200 miles across the country, sleeping in the woods, meeting people and praying as he went. He has received prophetic visitation all his life, which he has vetted through a trio of priests over the last 20 years, and now speaks publicly about on this site. Yet he emphasizes that we find God most surely through the ordinary, doing the little things we should with faith and fidelity. Hence the name, The Next Right Step. The visitations inform his work, but are not the focus of it. He lives in the Archdiocese of Denver in the United States.

    Well congratulations Charlie! This then is the perfect illustration of the veracity of your Fatima analysis so many years ago! I read it on Spiritdaily in 2000 (?) and I never forgot it. I knew it was the truth back then. At that time I kept wondering why I felt that JPII was my spiritual father but it was a sense wouldn’t go away. When I read your Fatima analysis, I knew that I was one of the corpses that he had prayed for as he made his way up that hill. I had a huge conversion experience in 1995 and my life was then changed forever. After reading your interviews with Michael Brown, I looked but was unable to find you for years. I came across this site only by ‘serendipity’!
    I pray God blesses you with fortitude and success on your mission.

      Thank you, so much, Serendipity! It was 2003 when I did the first interviews with Michael Brown. I remember because I was recovering from my spinal surgery. I was not “out” then and did not particularly care to be. A woman who knew one of my priests had seen some of the things I had written privately (the priests have always had my permission on this) and she forwarded it to Michael, who contacted me. While I was not “out,” I nonetheless had always figured if something like that came where someone sought me out, I would treat it as a prompt from God to fill a need and respond to it.

      Funny, since I worked in large campaigns in a command position, I had contingencies in mind in case it became general knowledge. After dealing with a shocked candidate, I would recommend they dismiss me or allow me to resign, whichever would cause the least fallout for them – and I would do my best to privately give them counsel should they need it – and work regional coordinators to encourage them to stay the course. That never happened. But I was amused that this year, after I had gone full public, I STILL had five major candidates (two statewide and three Congressional) try to recruit me. One was an old friend and sparring partner. I knew that when I first wrote of this stuff on Facebook, it had been a hot topic of conversation in Illinois political circles. I asked my friend in some frustrated puzzlement. “Don’t you know I’ve gone publicly crazy? Why do so many of you keep tempting me.” He paused for moment, then chuckled and said, “It wasn’t as big a surprise as you might think. Everybody knew you were a little…different…but very gifted.” I said, okay, I would buy that, but it still could not be a good thing to have a high counselor who routinely talks to dead people. Again, he chuckled, and said, “Like I said, everybody already knows. Whose going to threaten you with what everyone knows…and they all know you’re good. Besides, maybe you can help us Republicans with some of that dead vote coming out of Chicago.”

      It tickled me that I worried so much over the years about this, planned so many contingencies to protect candidates who had retained me, and then found, when it did get out, that no one cared.

    I don’t disagree that American is a Babylon (I have read others who say the whole modern world has become Babylon, thus the need for chastisement)I have a problem when doomsday writers base their conclusions on things like the workings of “secret societies” which seem to control everything, but with which noone seems to have any real concrete knowledge. In my experience, we humans are not easily controlled, espcially those who wish to do actual evil. And we aren’t that good at keeping secrets either.
    It seems like we have enough real evil in the world from known threats. When I read things based on such premises and other conspiracy theories etc., I tend to reject them. To me, such claims are based on neither faith nor reason, yet they seem to have a life of their own. Am I missing something; am I the only one out there who feels this way?
    p.s.
    Charlie, your writing does not feel this way-they are always uplifting and hopeful, even when you share bad news –light-filled.

      I pretty much agree with you, Peg. I have a short attention span for ‘secret society’ conspiracy theories. There are several reasons why I made an exception for this:

      1) I have read Mallett for two years and literally never saw anything he wrote that I didn’t heartily second. The man carries a weight that leads me to look at things coming from him that I would quickly dismiss from a lesser light.

      2) Mallet is genuinely meticulous in his research. He has a real horror of deceiving, even unintentionally, so he vets everything for the underlying facts and how it relates to the Magisterium. And he is a fully obedient son of the Church.

      3) As rare as they are, there actually have been large and successful conspiracies in history. Many countries taken over by communists, or progressives, were victims of large-scale conspiracies. The Marxist dialectic is particular well-suited for conspiracies. It turns the concepts of truth and lies entirely on its head. In this dialectic, anything that advances the cause of the movement is the truth and anything that impeded it is a lie. Thus, if a verifiable fact is damaging to the favored movement, under this dialectic it is a lie. If a whole tissue of lies advances it, it is the truth. This, of course, is downright diabolical – and is why certain progressives can lie with such alacrity and be convinced they are telling the truth. Anything with Marxist origins has to be regarded as suspect – not just as being false, but as not even occupying the same universe of what is true and false.

      4) The favored method advocated by Marx and Engels for bringing on their ‘utopia’ was to manufacture a crisis, put people in fear, break down those things that bring order to a society. Be prepared to move in quickly with a ‘solution’ that advances the Marxist cause. This method has been updated and refined – in America most recently by Cloward-Pivens and Saul Alinsky. But it has been used consistently since the mid-1800s to undermine otherwise healthy societies and cultures.

      Mallett and I spoke about this at some length a few weeks ago. I agreed with him then that there is an overarching strategy here that has been around for some time, but I do not think there is so much an overarching organization, doing master planning, as I think it is a satanic plan which takes opportunistic advantage of various gifted and diseased minds throughout the course of time to advance a coherent agenda that is subversive to Christianity and freedom. Some of those diseased entities are more successful and long-lived than others.

      But the thing is, when Mallett makes the case, I have to seriously look into it because he is so cautious, meticulous and steady. It makes me contemplate deeply whether I might have missed a few things. So, whether you are inclined to agree with him or not, Mallett is a very serious and sober man whose history of the same should lead you to give him a much weightier hearing than you would from most other sources.

        I have the same response that you do, Charlie, to what Mark Mallett writes. I’ve been reading him for a while (and was referred here by one of his posts). The first time I read something on his site that made reference to the Illuminati, I definitely balked. Like you, I tend to think that evil works in its typically legion fashion through many outlets, but I’m not sure how much there’s a conscious worldwide plan on the parts of the participants. Having said that, as perhaps a small additional note to the excellent points you make above about Marxism, I think it’s worth noting that the Fabian Society figured large in the imaginations of the writers known as The Inklings–Tolkein, Lewis, Williams, and their cohorts. Lewis’ depiction the society of N.I.C.E. (I love that name) in *That Hideous Strength* is based on the Fabians; Tolkein’s final chapter in his Ring Trilogy, The Scouring of the Shire, addresses the dangers of progressive socialism. Along with T.S. Eliot, these writers had a clear sense of what was ahead for the twentieth century, and tried to fashion a literature (Tolkein called it mythopoesis–or the deliberate creation of myths for our time) that would actively counteract the more nihilistic, progressive-promoting, literature of the Modernists. I find it fascinating how these writers found each other and worked together to encourage one another in what was a kind of literary warfare, and how Tolkein’s work, in particular, became wildly popular again just after 9/11. If there are conspiracies for evil, then perhaps there are also conspiracies for good, as well.

        Peg I think you may being a little naive here. You can just look at the Black vote as an instant of being controlled. Look at how the majority continue to vote democrat but never really recieve anything from the democrats other than welfare. Look how they are controlled by the media and certian key black leaders. Look how the media only reports certain things and leave out other major stories. You just have to listen to some conservative talk show host to here the montages they put together of liberal reporters all saying and reporting the same exact phrases like they were give their talking points from on high. Just look at history, people are like sheep even when they see the frieght train coming at them and have been warned not to play on the tracks they still stand in the middle. We get comfortable in our complacency, its easier to float down with rest of the dead bodies thanit is to fight the current of the times. If you were bring a person from the 1940’s foward to this time period they would be shocked at how liberal we have become in our fashions and our attitudes toward God, and that has happened over 50 plus years of desensitizing our morals. Women walk around in bikini’s that show as much if not more than their underwear, but if a man walked in on them in their under wear they would cover up, but they will wear a bikini in front of a man without blinking an eye. We are like the frog in the tank if you slowly increase the heat on a frog he will not move he will sit their and die.
        Our lady has warned us and even told us of the secret societies that are now controlling things. One of the Popes and I don’t know which one it was said that if you have a room full of 15 foot tall people and ten foot tall people and five foot tall people guess who the 15 foot people communicate with. They may not controll people in the manchurian style of controll, but they do know and have the tools to manipulate key people and policies.

          Looking through old posts to catch up and saw this comment–what a great analogy. It also reminded me of something: a few years ago, I think, there was a publicized meeting of really wealthy folks–Oprah, Bill Gates, the like, to discuss “world issues,” one of which was how to better ensure population control in third world countries. I remember feeling chilled by it at the time. To me, this kind of thing is a perfect example of the conspiracy of ten feet tall people, happening in plain sight.

    Augustine back in the 4th century posited that there was not only a Mystical Body of Christ but also a Mystical Body of satan. He suggested that just as a the Body of Christ operated as one not by conscious collusion but rather by being animated by the same Spirit – the Holy Spirit. So, too, the Body of satan, that is those committed to his cause and to his aims, may not be in conscious collusion so hence not properly a conspiracy nonetheless they are animated by the same spirit.
    Since hearing this teaching of St. Augustine years ago I have become a little more open to the idea of conspiracies.

      What an excellent and canny observation! Of course, St. Augustine is the patron of my conversion to the Catholic Church, so I am fond of much of what he said. (It was upon reading Augustine’s Confessions that I decided to seriously investigate the Catholic Church as home. I went to a Mass to worship – and never quit. A year later I discovered that the first Sunday Mass I went to came just a few days after St. Augustine’s Feast Day).

    Just wanted to post my thoughts on all the comments as well as my reaction to Mark Mallett. I have found Mark to be very uplifting. He gives facts based on not only magisterial writings but also men like Archbishop Sheen and Fr. John Hardin. These two men alone have been spiritually inspired to see and speak of realities that I don’t believe many have insight into, ALL with the underlying message of staying in the barque of Peter. Pius XII sure wrote a lot about secret societies, namely the Freemasons and what they have possibly stood for over the centuries. Who knows? Yet, in the end we will all know more as to whether these ideas are accurate or not. I do know that Fr. John Hardon was able to line out with absolute accuracy the communist strategy that was written back in the 20’s and moved into the western universities and has shown its ugly head in our grade school and high schools, just as pre-planned so many years ago. How does all this happen? How do groups that for so long (i.e. the Illuminati, Bilderbergers, etc.) have been denied as existing and now even by mainline news groups report of their meetings in highly secure hotels around the world? Strange coincidence? Who knows. The bottom line is men connive , God secures. No matter what actual groups and powers that have been able to maintain themselves over the centuries, the devil has been tempting men to power since the garden. How are we to deny that this has been consistent and ‘institutional’ in the City of Man (thank you St. Augustine) since the beginning. Men get played by Satan. The rest I leave to the future when all will be revealed. America is being moved in a direction that some very ugly force and ideology has directed it through the willing cooperation of leaders and citizens who have lost the sense of God and our relationship with that God. Now is the time to choose where we will place our hats. Thanks for listening.

      Thank you Kris! I love those comments that keep in mind that while men have a plan and the devil has a plan – so does God. God’s plan wins. We don’t need to know the details of His plan, any more than soldiers on the line need to know the general’s battle plan. Just take the next right step. Our advantage over the common soldier is that we know our General wins. Less time trying to figure out the General’s plan, more time doing our homely duty, and all will be well.

        A group of lay people where I live have been studying the Great Adventure in the Bible, a Jeff Cavins series through Ascension Press. One of the studies is the Book of Revelation. I recommend it to all who would want to know more of the ‘plan’. It is most surprising to study this book from a whole perspective. It will give much hope to all who need it. Truly this will plant us firmly in knowing that ‘God wins’ . Who knows what we will experience as the ‘beast’ devours the ‘harlot’. Yet, I have always been amazed at how many good people believe it is worth the risk of joining forces with those diametrically opposed to what is holy and do not see that in the end they are going to be betrayed. Yet, no matter how this information is presented, those ideas are pushed aside as negative and divisive. I do so agree that tending to my little garden is the best and most humble way to walk through the storm.

    I know a lot of people cannot believe in conspiracy theories but then how can we explain the media diet we are fed every day. I live in Ireland and last year the government decided to introduce abortion even though approx. 100,000 people took to the streets. This is out of a population of about 4mill. The media has consistently ignored the protests and over reported anything on the pro abortion side. We now have a referendum on gay ‘marriage’ next year and its a constant drip drip. I believe the powers that be in Europe are behind all of this and ultimately there is a group that is deciding what we will do and think. We had recent elections where the government lost out badly but they still go along with this even though it will probably cost many of them their seats.
    Media is now so biased that I have decided to live in a bubble. I dont watch TV much, or read newspapers. I listen to the news and even thats biased. Personally I have to do this or I would get very upset and depressed from it all.

    Also, some time ago Mark Mallett said “the safest place to be is in the will of God”–I thought that was spot on–absolutely the way to view things right now and always. Canada, US, anywhere…all the same now. All in the battle. The will of God is the one safe place, the Heart of Mary the Ark.
