Our Lady of fair love, give me perfect confidence in Thy Son.

Issue #21 – November 1, 2022

Read this newsletter in PDF format for greatest clarity. Print out any sections you might want in a power-out situation.

This will be a Newsletter Lite, as we are well into a critical time between now and November 8. Momentous things will be decided by the mid-terms. DO NOT VOTE EARLY, as it enables cheating (if you don’t understand how, watch “2000 Mules,” and catch up with True the Vote.) There are already murmurings of diesel shortages, and scarcity of some antibiotics. Evidence of US biolabs doing gain-of-function work is being presented internationally. Deaths are being reported after the bivalent booster shot that was not tested on humans before its release. The game is well and truly on.

If our country was running a 26-mile marathon, we would be around mile 19. Whatever we have done or not done to prepare, the race is now live. The finish will demand a brave, determined effort, and it could still be lost in the last seven miles, but we’ve come a long way. Now we remain stouthearted, and trust in the Lord.

Our Hope: Locally Prepared, Heavenly Sourced

An old political bromide advises candidates that, “all politics is local.” This is something it is far too easy for candidates, particularly those running for legislative seats, to forget. People love to yammer on about big, abstract issues while neglecting the more mundane, basic ones. People want to know how you are going to improve their lives.

The first Congressman I ever worked for was the late Robert McClory of Illinois. I drove him around, wrote some speeches for him and did some legislative work. We would kick around policy and strategy as we drove the district every weekend. McClory was something of a moderate, non-ideological Republican, book-ended by conservative firebrand Phil Crane to the southeast and progressive firebrand John Anderson to the west. It was a fairly conservative district. He taught me something important about how to maintain a solid re-elect margin in a district where you are a slightly uncomfortable fit. It was constituent service.

McClory was not a particularly harsh taskmaster, but there was one thing he was deadly on. Every one of us who worked with him were expected to have notepads and pens with us wherever we went. If a constituent had a problem we were expected to get all the details on it – and he focused like a laser on solving it. Most of them were related to social security, but it didn’t matter to him what it was, including things that were not at all within a Congressman’s purview. He figured folks needed someone to listen, to care, and to navigate the bureaucracy for them. If it was a state issue, he would contact the appropriate authority and stay on top of it until they had it resolved. If you bobbled a couple of constituent requests, you could go do something else. It worked. People loved him, even if they didn’t love all his positions.

The late Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley (the original) had a similar ethos. He like to say that, “good government is good politics, and good politics is good government.” Daley gave operatives in the Chicago machine a lot of latitude, but he was adamant that basic services – garbage pickup, snow removal – be attended to with dispatch. A precinct captain that wasn’t getting that done soon found himself outside looking in. For all the mythos about the Chicago machine, folks who lived in Chicago in those days knew that if you called your local precinct captain, you were going to get results – and quick results, to  boot. That was the primary foundation of the Daley machine. Of course, those days are long gone and Chicagoans still vote reflexively Democrat even as the city sinks beneath a tide of violence and debris.

As we go forward with CORAC, I want more and more emphasis placed on local action. We have set forth our religious and philosophical aims with clarity. We have set up a LOT of committees helping people with health and wellness, sustainability, communications, prayer, emergency preparedness and such. Now we need CORAC members everywhere to see themselves as ambassadors – or old-style precinct captains; people who watch for problems and help their neighbors to solve them.

I want, in the coming year, for CORAC members across the land to make contact with your local priests, pastors and rabbis. Find out where the needs are. Get a team of volunteers together. If there is an elderly couple needing some help with a home repair, get people from the team out to do it. If someone needs a ride into town occasionally, get someone to help. Some folks are just lonely. It would be nice to have people who could visit and chat, say a little prayer, have a cup of tea.

When I was a kid in elementary school, I loved visiting the old folks around the neighborhood. I’d make my weekly rounds. I was amazed at how glad they always were to see me. The Luckels always had a fresh batch of Brach’s soft candy in a bowl set out for me. Mrs. Thompson always had tea and cookies out for me…and on and on. I thought it was cool how welcoming they were to me, just a little kid. And they had the greatest stories. Mrs. Thompson told me how her family had come to Illinois from back east in a covered wagon in the late 1800’s. Can you imagine that? I was fascinated by them…and they liked me. It was not until after I was grown that I understood that they were both kind – and lonely. It was nice to realize that the joy they gave me by their kindness also gave them joy by my interest and lively questions and conversation.

What we are about, more than anything else, is knitting together anew the fabric of a healthy society. That is accomplished by being there for a multitude of little things. It is a kind of pointillistic painting, a whole series of tiny encounters and kindnesses coming together to reveal a much larger pattern – the pattern of a healthy, loving society under God. It is not particularly glamorous and will not feed any delusions of grandeur. It is, however, incredibly joyful as the sphere of souls you love, and souls who love you back, continues to grow by leaps and bounds. It is the stuff that sustains people through whatever comes. Friends who care for each other are what makes the world go round.

So go forth. Let us be known far and wide as the people who do stuff…and may our tribe increase, under God, and with joyful resolve. Make friends who can count on you – and you will be able to count on them.

Do these things immediately

Do not vote early and certainly not by mail. Vote in person on November 8. It’s our best hope to Defeat the Cheat.



The price good men pay for indifference toward public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.

  • Use cash. Resist the digital economy that will make you manipulable. Keep Cash Alive >

  • Fly the American flag. It’s a no-cost act of peaceful resistance, and an encouragement to passers-by.



On October 20, when the CDC voted unanimously (over massive contrary public comments) to put the covid shot on the Childhood Vaccination Schedule, it was an obscenely indifferent move. Pfizer, Moderna and J&J required it, in order to hide behind the 1986 law that shields them from any legal liability. Now that their shots are listed on the schedule, they do not have to compensate anyone who is injured or killed by their product. It’s a Get Out Of Jail Free card.

National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act

Signed into law in 1986 in respect to the inherently risky nature of vaccines, this Act absolves manufacturers of legal liability for damage caused by vaccines.

No Vaccine manufacturer shall be liable in a civil action for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death associated with the administration of a vaccine after October 1, 1988, if the injury or death resulted from side effects that were unavoidable even though the vaccine was properly prepared and was accompanied by proper directions and warnings.

What We Can Do About

To parents and grandparents all over this country, Dr. Robert Malone says, “Let’s get planning!”

A reminder about the mail-order antibiotics, as news goes out about the nationwide amoxicillin shortage. It is probably not the last Rx shortage; it might be wise to have some backup.

The Vote

True the Vote is doing unprecedented work to restore election integrity. If the monumental task of fair elections is successful, it will be very much to the credit of Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips.

2000 Mules

“They thought we’d never find out. They were wrong.” If you missed “2000 Mules” when it was released earlier this year, watch it now. It’s an important film for every American.
Watch 2000 Mules >

Unwanted Boosters

Dr. Peter McCullough: “The United States has bought enough boosters for nearly the entire country. We have drained our treasury dry; what are they going to do? They’ve bought all this product; it’s going to be shipped to the pharmacies. Look at the data here. Nobody wants these. We are going to have the biggest tension. Are people going to be clobbered with mandates and pressure and coercion to take these untested products? Or is America going to have the wherewithal and the strength to say ‘No more.’?”

US Bioweapons Labs

The evidence is massive, historic and damning of the power elites of the West.

Biden Laptop

More massive, historic and damning evidence. Marco Polo’s Report fully documents 459 crimes with evidence extending to 630 pages. It was sent last week to every US Senator and Representative, and every US Attorney in districts where the crimes were committed.
You can read some summaries of it here, enough to get the gist >

Regional News

In the last newsletter, Ron Polomsky wrote the beautiful article about the pilgrimage up Mount Meeker. My apologies for omitting the credit! If you have news particular to your region, please let me know.

It’s About The Children

No one will talk about the horror that is child trafficking, but Lara Logan is putting it out there. I think she is on to something, no matter how many news organizations disavow her. If you get discouraged, just remember we are fighting a battle for children.

You Will Not Want To Live In The World They Wish To Create

This is an excerpt from a longer letter by Seth Keshel, Captain K, who has done yeoman’s work on election integrity. These words are for every one of us:

When you reach the end (of your life,) it is too late to turn around and enter the fighting season and engage at the point in time in which you punted the proverbial football, hoping someone else would carry the banner.

Unless you are very old and very well off, and living in the right places, you will not be able to ride out this fight for our national survival. You will either commit to engagement and involvement as never before, or you will effectively surrender your terrain. You will be forced to care.

The enemies of liberty do not observe your holidays, your occasions, your need for “let’s pick it back up in a month after holidays.” They ram their beliefs and corrupt systems down your throat when you are enjoying milk and cookies by the fireplace.

If everyone with a heart for this nation and restoring her to her founding principles stands up, we will redeem this land. If we do not get maximum participation, we will fail and go the way of fallen empires written about for all time. Simply put, the cost of inaction is too great. You will not want to live in the world they wish to create.

November Prayer Intentions

Please keep these intentions in your daily prayers.

  • For all CORAC members, especially those going through tough trials

  • For a strong, ongoing response to the current CORAC fundraising campaign

  • For travel mercies for Charlie and blessings on his meetings and presentations

  • That we embrace Charlie’s CORAC Call to “Make Friends!” and that we fully put on the mindset that rejects any regimented schematics about what’s going to happen and, instead, keep our eyes fixed on what actually does unfold, the better to focus on next right steps

  • That each of us continues to carve out time for silence and contemplation with the Lord, every day, giving Him opportunities to calm us, steady us and focus us for each next right step

  • For all intentions carried in the hearts of CORAC members

St. Gabriel, enlighten us.
St. Michael, defend us.
St. Raphael, protect us.
Ave Maria, Stella Maris!
