Palm Sunday

Rev. Fr. Leonard Goffine's
The Church's Year

Why is this day called Palm Sunday?
In memory of our Saviour's triumphant entry into Jerusalem, when the multitude strewed palm branches before Him, for which reason the Church, on this day, blesses palms, and carries them in procession.
Why are palms blessed?
That those who carry them with devotion, or keep them in their houses, may receive protection of soul and body, as prayed for in the blessing; that those who carry the palms may, by means of the prayers of the Church, adorn their souls with good works and thus, in spirit, meet the Saviour; that, through Christ whose members we are, we may conquer the kingdom of death and darkness, and be made worthy to share in His glorious resurrection and triumphant entrance into heaven. St. Augustine writes of the palms: “They are the emblem of praise, and sign of victory, because the Lord by death conquered death, and with the sign of victory, the cross, overcame the devil, the prince of death." Therefore, preceded by the cross, we go in procession around the church singing hymns of praise; when we come to the church door, we find it locked; the priest knocks at it with the cross. Heaven was closed to us by the sin of Adam, and it is opened to us by reconciliation through Jesus on the cross.
To move us to compassion for the suffering Redeemer, the Church, in the person of Christ, cries in lamenting tones at the Introit:
INTROIT O Lord, remove not Thy help to a distance from me, look towards my defence: save me from the lion's mouth, and my lowness from the horns of the unicorns. O God, my God! look on me, why hast Thou forsaken me? Far from my salvation are the words of my sins. O Lord! Remove not, &c. (Ps. XXI.)
COLLECT Almighty and everlasting God! who didst vouchsafe to send Thy Son, our Saviour, to take upon Him our flesh, and to suffer death upon the cross, to give mankind an example of humility; mercifully grant, that we may both follow the example of His patience, and be made partakers of His Resurrection. Through the same our Lord Jesus Christ Thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with Thee, in the Unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end, Amen.
EPISTLE (Philip. II. 5-11.) Brethren, let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery himself to be equal to God; but debased himself, taking the form of a servant, being made to the likeness of men, and in shape found as a man. He humbled himself, becoming obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore, God also hath exalted him, and hath given him a name, which is above every name: that in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those that are in heaven, on earth, and under the earth; and that every tongue should confess, that the Lord, Jesus Christ, is in the glory of God, the Father.
INSTRUCTION In this epistle, the apostle urges us in a special manner to humility by which we are made like to Christ, our Lord, who putting off the majesty of His divinity, became man, and humbled Himself in obedience to the ignominious death of the cross. "Would that all might hear," exclaims St. Gregory, "that God resists the proud, and gives His grace to the humble! Would that all might hear: Thou dust and ashes, why dost thou exalt thyself? Would that all might hear the words of the Lord: Learn of me, because I am humble of heart. The only-begotten Son of God assumed the form of our weakness, suffered mockery, insult and torments for the purpose that the humble God might teach man not to be proud."
ASPIRATION  Ah, that my sentiments were as Thee, O my Lord, Jesus! who so humbled Thyself and was obedient to the most ignominious death of the cross. Grant me, I beseech Thee, O my Redeemer, the grace diligently to follow Thee in humility.
Instead of the gospel of the Passion, that is, the history of the sufferings of our Lord according to St. Matthew, (Chaps. XXVI. XXVII.) is read in this day's Mass, and neither incense, nor lights are used, nor is the Dominus vobiscum said, thus signifying that Jesus, the Light of the world, was taken away by death, and that the faith and devotion of the apostles was shaken, and became almost extinct. When reading the History of the Passion at the words: and bowing his head, he gave up the ghost, the priest with all the congregation kneel and meditate for a short time on the great mystery of the death of Jesus, by which our redemption was effected.
At the blessing of the palms, the priest reads the following
GOSPEL (Matt. XXI. 1-9.) At that time, when Jesus drew nigh to Jerusalem, and was come to Bethphage, unto Mount Olivet; then he sent two disciples, saying to them: Go ye into the village that is over against you, and immediately ye will find an ass tied, and a colt with her; loose them, and bring them to me; and if any man shall say any thing to you, say ye that the Lord bath need of them, and forthwith he will let them go. Now all this was done, that the word might be fulfilled, which was spoken by the prophet, saying: Tell ye the daughter of Sion, behold thy king cometh to thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt, the foal of her that is used to the yoke. And the disciples going, did as Jesus commanded them. And they brought the ass and the colt, and laid their garments upon them, and made him sit thereon. And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; and others cut down boughs from the trees, and strewed them in the way; and the multitudes that went before and that followed, cried, saying: Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
Why did Jesus enter Jerusalem so solemnly and yet so humbly?
To show that He was the promised Messiah and King of the Jews, as foretold by the Prophet Zacharias, (IX 9.) and that He had come to conquer the world, the flesh and the devil, for which He used the weapons of meekness, humility, and poverty and therefore came seated not on a proud steed but like a poor person on the weak colt of an ass, entering Jerusalem in all humility, thus teaching us that meekness and indifference to earthly goods are our best weapons to gain victory over our enemies. Jesus entered Jerusalem so humbly to perfect the type of the Paschal lamb, for on this day the lambs which were to be sacrificed in the temple on the following Friday, were solemnly led into the city. Thus Jesus like a meek lamb, entered the city of Jerusalem to be sacrificed for us.
Why did the people meet Christ with palm branches?
This happened by the inspiration of God, to indicate that Christ, the conqueror of death, hell and the devil, would reconcile man with God, and open the heavenly Jerusalem to him, for the palm is the emblem of victory and peace. By this we learn also the inconsistency and mutability of the world; for the very people who on this day met Christ with palm branches exclaiming: "Hosanna to the Son of David," a few days later shouted: "Crucify him! Crucify him!" - Learn from this to despise the praise of the world, and be careful not to imitate the inconsistency of this people by crucifying Him again by sin (Heb. VI. 6.) after having received Him with joy in holy Communion.
How should we take part in the procession on this day?
With the pious intention of meeting Christ in spirit, with the devout people of Jerusalem, adoring Him, saying: "Hosanna to the Son of David, Hosanna to Him who comes in the name of the Lord; Hosanna to the Highest!" and with the heart-felt prayer to Jesus for His grace, that with Him we may conquer the world, the flesh and the devil, and thus merit to be received into the heavenly Jerusalem.
PETITION  O Jesus, Tree of Life! ever fresh and fruitful, grant that we may by love be like palms ever green, and by the practice of, good works blossom and bring forth fruit.

At that time, Jesus said to his disciples: You know that after two days shall be the Pasch, and the Son of Man shall be delivered up to be crucified. Then were gathered together the chief priests and the ancients of the people into the palace of the high-priest, who was called Caiphas. And they consulted together, that, by subtilty, they might apprehend Jesus and put him to death. But they said: Not on the festival day, lest there should be a tumult among the people. And when Jesus was in Bethania, in the house of Simon the leper, there came to him a woman having an alabaster box of precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he was at table. And the disciples seeing it, had indignation, saying: To what purpose is this waste? For this might have been sold for much, and given to the poor. And Jesus knowing it, said to them: Why do you trouble this woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me. For the poor you have always with you: but me you have not always. For she, in pouring this ointment upon my body, hath done it for my burial. Amen, I say to you, wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, that also which she hath done, shall be told for a memory of her.
Then went one of the twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, to the chief priests, and said to them: What will you give me, and I will deliver him unto you? But they appointed for him thirty pieces of silver. And from thenceforth he sought opportunity to betray him.
And on the first day of the Azymes, the disciples came to Jesus, saying: Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the Pasch? But Jesus said: Go ye into the city to a certain man, and say to him: The master saith: my time is near at hand, I will keep the Pasch at thy house with my disciples. And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them, and they prepared the Pasch. Now when it was evening, he sat down with his twelve disciples. And whilst they were eating, he said: Amen, I say to you, that one of you is about to betray me. And they being very much troubled, began everyone to say: Is it I, Lord? But he answering, said: He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me. The Son of Man indeed goeth as it is written of him; but woe to that man, by whom the Son of Man shall be betrayed: it were better for that man, if he had not been born. And Judas that betrayed him, answering, said: Is it I, Rabbi? He said to him: Thou hast said it. And whilst they were at supper, Jesus took bread, and blessed and broke, and gave to his disciples, and said: Take ye and eat: This is my body. And taking the chalice he gave thanks: and gave to them, saying: Drink ye all of this. For this is my blood of the new testament, which shall be shed for many for the remission of sins. And I say to you, I will not drink from henceforth of the fruit of the vine, until that day, when I shall drink it new with you in the kingdom of my Father. And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to Mount Olivet.
Then Jesus saith to them: All you shall be scandalized in me this night. For it is written: I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be dispersed. But after I shall be risen again, I will go before you into Galilee. And Peter answering, said to him: Though all shall be scandalized in thee, I will never be scandalized. Jesus said to him: Amen, I say to thee, that in this night, before the cock crow, thou wilt deny me thrice. Peter saith to him: Though I should die with thee, I will not deny thee. And in like manner said all the disciples. Then Jesus came with them to a country place which is called Gethsemani, and he said to his disciples: Sit you here, till I go yonder, and pray. And taking with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to grow sorrowful and to be sad.
Then he saith to them: My soul is sorrowful even unto death; stay you here, and watch with me. And going a little further he fell upon his face, praying, and saying: O my Father! if it is possible, let this chalice pass from me. Nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. And he cometh to his disciples, and findeth them asleep; and he saith to Peter: What! could you not watch one hour with me? Watch ye, and pray that ye enter not into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. Again he went the second time, and prayed, saying: O my Father! if this chalice cannot pass away except I drink it, thy will be done. And he cometh again, and findeth them asleep; for their eyes were heavy. And leaving them, he went away again, and he prayed the third time, saying the same words. Then he cometh to his disciples, and with to them: Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man shall be betrayed into the hands of sinners. Rise, let us go; behold, he is at hand that will betray me.
As he yet spoke, behold, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and clubs, sent from the chief priests and the ancients of the people. And he that betrayed him, gave them a sign, saying: Whomsoever I shall kiss, that is he: hold him fast. And forthwith coming to Jesus, he said: Hail, rabbi! And he kissed him. And Jesus said to him: Friend! whereto art thou come? Then they came up and laid hands on Jesus, and held him. And behold one of them that were with Jesus, stretching forth his hand, drew out his sword; and striking the servant of the high-priest, cut off his ear. Then Jesus saith to him: Put up again thy sword into its place for all that take the sword shall perish by the sword. Thinkest thou that I cannot ask my Father, and he will give me presently more than twelve legions of Angels? How then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that so it must be done? In that same hour Jesus said to the multitude: You are come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs to apprehend me. I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and you laid not hands on me. Now all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then the disciples all leaving him, fled away.
But they holding Jesus, led him to Caiphas, the high-priest, where the scribes and the ancients were assembled. But Peter followed him afar off to the high-priest's palace. And going in, he sat with the servants, to see the end. Now the chief priests and whole council sought false witness against Jesus, that they might put him to death: and they found not, though many false witnesses had come in. And last of all, there came two false witnesses. And they said: This man said: I am able to destroy the temple of God, and in three days to rebuild it. And the high-priest rising up, said to him: Answerest thou nothing to the things which these witness against thee? But Jesus held his peace. And the high-priest said to him: I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us if thou be the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus saith to him: Thou hast said it. Nevertheless I say to you, hereafter you shall see the Son of Man, sitting on the right hand of the power of God, and coming in the clouds of heaven. Then the high-priest rent his garments, saying: He hath blasphemed, what further need have we of witnesses? Behold, now you have heard the blasphemy. What think you? But they answering, said: He is guilty of death.
Then they spit in his face, and buffetted him, and others struck his face with the palms of their hands, saying: Prophesy unto us, O Christ! who is he that struck thee? But Peter sat without in the palace, and there came to him a servant maid, saying: Thou also wast with Jesus the Galilean. But he denied before them all, saying: I know not what thou sayest. And as he went out of the gate, another maid saw him, and she saith to them that were there: This man also was with Jesus of Nazareth. And again he denied with an oath: I do not know the man. And after a little while, they that stood by came and said to Peter: Surely thou also art one of them: for even thy speech doth discover thee. Then he began to curse and to swear that he knew not the man.
And immediately the cock crew. And Peter remembered the word of Jesus which he had said: Before the cock crow, thou wilt deny me thrice. And going forth, he wept bitterly.
And when the morning was come, all the chief priests and ancients of the people held a council against Jesus, to put him to death. And they brought him bound, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate, the governor.
Then Judas, who betrayed him, seeing that he was condemned, repenting himself, brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and the ancients, saying: I have sinned, in betraying innocent blood. But they said: What is that to us? look thou to it.
And casting down the pieces of silver in the temple, he departed: and went and hanged himself with a halter. But the chief priests having taken the pieces of silver, said: It is not lawful to put them into the corbona, because it is the price of blood. And having consulted together, they bought with them the potter's field, to be a burying-place for strangers. Wherefore that field was called Haceldama, that is the field of blood, even to this day.
Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremias the prophet, saying: And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they prized of the children of Israel. And they gave them unto the potter's field, as the Lord appointed to me.
And Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, saying: Art thou the king of the Jews? Jesus saith to him: Thou sayest it. And when he was accused by the chief priests and ancients, he answered nothing. Then Pilate saith to him: Dost thou not hear how great testimonies they allege against thee?
And he answered him not to any word: so that the governor wondered exceedingly.
Now upon the solemn day the governor was accustomed to release to the people one prisoner, whom they would. And he had then a notorious prisoner, that was called Barabbas. They, therefore, being gathered together, Pilate said: Whom will you that I release to you, Barabbas, or Jesus, who is called Christ? For he knew that through envy they had delivered him up. And as he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying. Have thou nothing to do with that just man. For I have suffered many things this day in a dream on account of him. But the chief priests and ancients persuaded the people, that they should ask Barabbas, and make Jesus away. And the governor answering, said to them: Which will you have of the two to be released unto you? But they said: Barabbas. Pilate saith to them: What shall I do then with Jesus that is called Christ? They all say: Let him be crucified. The governor said to them: Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying: Let him be crucified. And Pilate seeing that he prevailed nothing, but that rather a tumult was made; having taken water, washed his hands before the people, saying: I am innocent of the blood of this just man: look you to it. And all the people answering, said: His blood be upon us, and upon our children. Then he released to them Barabbas, and having scourged Jesus, delivered him to them to be crucified.
Then the soldiers of the governor, taking Jesus into the hall, gathered together unto him the whole band. And stripping him, they put a scarlet cloak about him. And platting a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand. And bowing the knee before him, they mocked him, saying: Hail, king of the Jews!
And spitting upon him, they took the reed, and struck his head. And after they had mocked him, they took off the cloak from him, and put on him his own garments, and led him away to crucify him.
And going out, they found a man of Cyrene, named Simon; him they forced to take up his cross. And they came to the place that is called Golgotha, which is, the place of Calvary. And they gave him wine to drink mingled with gall. And when he had tasted, he would not drink. And after they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots; that the word might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying: They divided my garments among them; and upon my vesture they cast lots. And they sat down, and watched him. And they put over his head his cause written: This is Jesus, the King of the Jews. Then were there crucified with him two thieves; the one on the right hand, and the other on the left. And they that passed by blasphemed him, wagging their heads, and saying: Vah, thou who destroyest the temple of God, and in three days buildest it up again, save thy own self: if thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross. In like manner also, the chief priests with the scribes and ancients, mocking, said: He saved others; himself he cannot save: if he be the king of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him. He trusted in God, let him deliver him now if he will save him: for he said: I am the Son of God.
And the self-same thing the thieves also, that were crucified with him, reproached him with. Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the earth, until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour, Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying: Eli, Eli, lamma sabacthani? that is: My God! my God! why hast thou forsaken me? And some of them that stood there and heard, said: This man calleth for Elias. And immediately one of them, running; took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar; and put it on a reed and gave him to drink. And the others said: Stay, let us see whether Elias will come to deliver him. And Jesus again crying with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
And behold the veil of the temple was rent in two, from the top even to the bottom, and the earth quaked, and the rocks were rent; and the graves were opened: and many bodies of the saints that had slept arose: and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection, came into the holy city, and appeared to many. Now the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, having seen the earthquake and the things that were done, were greatly afraid, saying: Indeed this was the Son of God. And there were there many women afar off, who had followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him; among whom was Mary Magdalen, and Mary, the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee. And when it was evening, there came a certain rich man of Arimathea, named Joseph, who also himself was a disciple of Jesus. He went to Pilate and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded that the body should be delivered. And Joseph taking the body, wrapped it up in a clean linen cloth. And laid it in his own new monument, which he had hewed out in a rock; and he rolled a great stone to the door of the monument, and went his way. And there was Mary Magdalen, and the other Mary sitting over against the sepulchre.
And the next day, which followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees came together to Pilate, saying: Sir, we have remembered that seducer said, while he was yet alive: After three days I will rise again. “Command, therefore, the sepulchre to be guarded until the third day; lest his disciples come and steal him away, and say to the people: He is risen from the dead. So the last error shall be worse than the first. Pilate said to them: You have a guard, go guard it as you know. And they departing, made the sepulchre sure, with guards, sealing the stone.
Why is this week called Holy Week?
This week is called Holy Week because during it we celebrate the most holy mysteries of our religion, and in all her offices and ceremonies the Church refers in quiet mournfulness to the passion and death of our Redeemer.
What remarkable things did Christ do during the first four days of this week?
After He had entered the temple at Jerusalem on Palm Sunday amidst the greatest rejoicings of the people, and was saluted by the children with that cry of joy: "Hosanna to the Son of David," He drove the buyers and sellers out of the temple, and when He had spent the entire day in preaching and healing the sick, He went in the evening to Bethania, where He remained over night in Lazarus' house, because in Jerusalem no one wished to receive Him for fear of His enemies. The three following days He spent in Jerusalem, teaching in the temple, and passing the night in prayer on Mount Olivet. In His sermons during these days He strove especially to convince the Jewish priests, the Doctors of the Law and the Pharisees, that He was really the Messiah, and that they would commit a terrible sin by putting Him to death; that they would bring themselves and the whole Jewish nation to destruction. This ruin of the people He illustrated most plainly causing the fig tree to wither under His curse, and by foretelling the destruction of the city and the temple of Jerusalem. He disputed with them, and confounded them, and brought them publicly to shame by parables, so that out of anger and hatred they with one mind determined to kill Him. The impious Judas aided the most in the execution of their design; through avarice he sold Him for thirty pieces of silver (about eighteen dollars in our money) to the chief priests, and the next day, Thursday, became His betrayer and delivered Him over into their hands.

Just In.... Read and Know

By Anna Von Reitz

Two pieces of news from credible sources that should make your hair stand on end. 

First, it appears that people are filing suit against China seeking compensation for damages incurred because of the so-called Wuhan virus. The amount of damages being sought is suspiciously similar to the amount of the US trade deficit with China.  

Go figure.  

Instead of suing Bill Gates and Dr. Fauci and Charles Lieber and the NIH and DARPA and the Pirbright Institute and the Wellcome Trust, and all the other entities and persons that are, most likely, the cause of the problem--- these people are busily suing their fellow-victims.  Satan must be having himself a real hee-haw. 

Take in the view.  And stand in Chinese shoes as you do so, thinking that "the Americans" are the problem, because most people can't tell the difference between "the US" and "Americans".  

FDR's Administration abused our Good Names and Credit with their 1930's impersonation scheme, and never provided the remedy they promised --- Mutual Offset Credit Exchange Exemptions.  

The payola they captured from not paying us what they owed us was used to rebuild Europe following the Second World War, and an endless parade of other monopoly and commodity rigging and bank fraud schemes.  

So, technically, Europe owes us the cost of rebuilding the world, including the Commonwealth and Japan after the Second World War, plus interest----- a sum so unimaginable that it would not fit on this page. 

Then, again, abusing our Good Names and Credit, they ran up a HUGE trade deficit with China.  

Just as they did with us, they exchanged paper I.O.U.s and "Treasury Bonds" for actual, physical goods. 

Only the Treasury Bonds were issued against bogus labor contracts and based on unlawful conversion of assets, exacerbated by issuing 7-10 times the credit backed by any actual asset under the "Federal Reserve System".  

Read that--- the Chinese acted in good faith, provided the actual goods in trade, and got rooked the same as we did, howbeit, for slightly different reasons. 

It's like a domino pile up.  The Europeans owe the US, and the US owes us and the Chinese, nobody is getting paid jack, and the rats in charge are all bound up in a big boiling rat-pile bankrupting each other, mostly over digits that don't exist. 

The curious end result of all this is that, assuming the virus originated in the US, the victims are being blamed (again), and everyone, everywhere, is engaged in stupidly proposing to in-debt their children for the next 32,000 years over debts that literally don't exist.  

Debts that are the fruits of fraud in all directions.  Odious debts.  Debts that should be written off, discharged, declared null and void, as if they never were.

Imagine a hundred seven year-olds with no very clear moral compass or grasp of adult reality, fooled by 3-D photographs of cupcakes, and fighting to possess all these "cupcakes".  

Because the Debt-Credit System was hijacked and used to siphon money for "government investments" the entire world monetary system has become more and more distorted and lop-sided as this imaginary debt has skyrocketed year after year, and those responsible have made no effort to pay people with anything equitable.  

Imagine a guy sitting at a bar, sucking down Irish Whiskey, and when its time to pay, he says, ah, sorry, bit out of pocket today.  My son will pay my tab..... 

So the son comes in, and gets hit with his Dad's bill.  He pays it, but then, his turn to pay for his own drinks comes up, and he says, ah, sorry, bit out of pocket.... my son and grandson will pay..... 

If this nonsense was allowed to continue --- for example, this recent glutting of $6.2 trillion to be charged against our credit as a "Stimulus Bill" --- (except that we returned the charges) our children would still be paying that debt two hundred and thirty generations from now.  

Not only is that not fair to them, and also not legally or lawfully or morally enforceable, its sheer Loony Tunes crazy.  Bonkers. 

That the fat men in Whitehall and their counterparts in Scotland and Hong Kong and Dubai and Tokyo and Bern and New York and Rome and Madrid ever let things slide this far is unimaginable. 

Yet, to be fair, this skimming and scamming has been going on so long that it has been institutionalized and compartmentalized, so that the majority of younger bureaucrats administering this Fairy Land, accept this as "the way it is, the way it has always been, the way we do things...." even though they are themselves the victims of it and even though this was never the way we did things at any time in our history--- or anyone else's history--- prior to FDR, when this whole Mess got going on steroids. 

There is only one (1) known way to collapse the debt safely, and that is to re-venue it as credit. 

Give all the rights, titles, interests, profits, fees, etc., back to the people it belongs to, and surrender the credit  --- what I call the "National Credit" owed to us, and the National Credit owed to China, and so on.  

Unfortunately, the guys at the top of the rat-pile are rats.  They can't imagine a world where they don't control everyone and everything.  They can't face the loss of all that glorious debt, used as a club over all the purported slaves--- even though that is exactly what is needed to preserve the credit system at all. 

And now, get ready for Slam Number Two..... 

Not only has the Office of the Pontiff been closed since 2011 --- news that apparently escaped the vast majority of the Catholic population on Earth, including senior clerics --- but now Pope Francis has admitted it, and signed the should-be-non-existent Pontifical Calendar without claiming to be the "Vicar of Christ".  He signed it in his own name, plain old George. 

Think about it.  If you are in fact acting as the administrator of the biggest liquidation of commercial entities in history, what does that have to do with the Church or Christ?  


Better to suck it up and take responsibility for it yourself.  

I would assume that that is what Pope Francis is doing by stepping outside his role in the Church to do this dirty clean up work related to the Pontificate.

Ever Had People Look at You Like.....

By Anna Von Reitz

Anyone who has followed the rabbit trail as we have, has discovered many truths that, at the time of discovery, were jaw-dropping.  

I remember discovering that the IRS was a private bill collector for the Pope's Municipal Government----and was in fact operating under the Spanish Law of the Inquisition.  

That was a big one. 

I remember when a friend of mine in the Deep South who was into Civil War History first pointed out, "Hey, the Civil War was never declared...... and there was no Peace Treaty ending it, either....." 

Talk about causing a brain freeze..... !

Pack enough of those under your belt and you look around and realize that: (1) you were not given a full deck; and (2) darn near everyone else is in the same condition.  

Of course, as I and our Team have learned more and more, we come to take these things for granted, and as we talk to each other we assume the stature of Geeks talking about Particle Physics. 

As you start this learning curve and start trying to share what you have learned with friends and relatives you are very likely to encounter resistance.  

What you have learned and what you are telling them is not in line with their long-accepted view of the world.  

And since they have a cozy, comforting view of the world and the government, they don't want to give that up for a world that is ambiguous, and frankly, frightening to think about. 

There are all sorts of reasons people stopper up their ears.  Fear is a big motivator.  Sloth is another --- it might interfere with watching football and require one to go to Town Hall  Meetings instead.  And then, there is simply feeling "overwhelmed".   

Life is tough enough with jobs and kids and everything else.  We know.  Been there and done that, too. 

Honestly, whatever reasons our friends and relatives have to blanching to pale green when we try to talk to them about history and law and the politics of it all, it still hurts, because for most of us, what we have learned is compelling. Indeed, it's urgent. 

The situation needs to be addressed, and we are the only ones that can address it.  Me and you.  There's nobody here but us chickens.  

At any given time, I have to deal with Newbies who have never given a second thought to their government or history, people in the Middle who are rushing around chasing every rabbit hole in sight, and my Peers --- people like Kurt Kallenbach and Romley Stewart who have followed their own threads into the Spider Web and come to know it from their own vantage points. 

One of the most pervasive evidences of crime against us that we have is the use of DOG LATIN --- our names appearing in all capital letters.  Every American above the age of four has noticed their name being spelled in all capital letters.   

Everyone knows that the proper way to spell a persons name in English is Upper and Lower Case, just like we were taught in Grade School. So what's the purpose or meaning of spelling a person's name in all capital letters?

If you ask a lawyer they will shine you on and say, oh, it's nothing.  Ignore that.  It's all the same.  

But it isn't.  

If you ask a grammarian, they will wrinkle their foreheads like a Venetian Blind. 

If you consult tomes published for the use of lawyers, you will learn that all caps name are used to denote the estates of dead men and corporations.  Nothing else.

Say what?  Are you dead?  Are you a corporation? 

At this point in the discovery process, Romley Stewart and his Crew of deadly determined researchers, set off on a world cruise of history and deceit and criminal government activities going back 1500 years to the reign of the Roman Emperor, Justinian.  

And they have delivered the ultimate and complete answer to what the use of names printed out in all capital letters means.  

Say good-bye to the glad-handing lawyers, telling you that it doesn't mean anything, go back to sleep..... 

And if your relatives say you are crazy, sit them down with a bag of chips and some beer in front of the television set they love---- and watch The Justinian Deception.  

You want proof?  You think we are all Tin Hats?  

The satisfaction of seeing your Doubter friends and relatives with their mouths hanging slack will be sufficient to justify the expense.  

I recommend that every State Assembly collect the shekels and buy a set and make this available to members.  It might even be the focus of a series of meetings and group discussions.  

Knowledge is power and proof is sweet.  Especially if you have ever had people look at you like you were crazy, when you tried to explain this part of it to them.

The Bond Company/Insurer, Black Rock, Inc.

By Anna Von Reitz

There's a lot of wild supposition going on about the status of the economy and the role of Black Rock, Inc., and on and on. There are even stories circulating that Trump somehow planned all of this to happen on his watch and that he is in cahoots with Black Rock and so on.
Let's get this straight.
The bond company/insurer would have been there no matter who or which political party happened to be in power when the government corporations defaulted. It's not Trump's "fault" nor was it part of his plan to be in this situation at this time. Okay?
These are big business operations --- both the US. Inc. and the USA, Inc.
Black Rock is holding a lot of their bonds, and many of those bonds are euphemistically called "labor bonds" based on the "presumption" --- False Presumption, as it is --- that you are a "ward of the State [of State]" and that your labor is "pledged" to support the government service corporation's debts.
If true, that would make you a voluntary indentured servant of the British Territorial State of State organization operating in your State of the Union--- and this would have to be "voluntary" on your part, or it would be recognized as international crime.
Remember the video I shared of the IRS Commissioner asserting on camera (and with a straight face) that Federal Income Taxes are 100% voluntary?
They dolled this basic scheme up in 1937 by creating a Municipal corporation franchise named after you. This entity is openly a slave.
Municipal Law and Noahide Law are the only laws left on Earth that allow slavery, so they created a whole bunch of "slave shell corporations" for themselves, named them after you, and left you with the bill. And four members of "Congress" acting in the dark passed Noahide Law as a law allowed by the Territorial Congress --- and applied it to Territorial U.S. Citizens. So everyone is a slave now, according to them.
The Pope simply claimed that you were "pledged" to do this by the Queen who claimed that you were voluntarily indentured as a ward of the British Territorial State of State substituting itself for your actual State government.
Step One, voluntary indentured servitude --- the status of our military as U.S. Citizens.
Step Two, involuntary enslavement as Paupers / Wards of the State (status created in Step One by the Queen) defined as Municipal "citizens of the United States", the status of the Federal Civil Service employees.
Mr. Fink and his world-spanning corporation, Black Rock, Inc. and all its affiliates invested in this scheme and bonded it. So now the rest of the world is finding out what these monsters in suits did here, in Breach of Trust and commercial contract.
It's not plausible to think that the world's largest bond holder wouldn't know the whole schtick, front and back, but just to make it clear ---- Mr. Fink bought a Fat Pig sold to him by the Shills in Washington, DC, who are actually the responsibility of the Queen and the Pope. Not our problem.
Oh, make no mistake --- he knew he was engaged in "securitzing" living flesh. He knew that was absolutely forbidden under all law under the sun, except the Pontiff's Municipal Law ---and the at-the-time no longer used Noahide Law, which also has to be removed to end slavery.
Larry Fink knew that we weren't all Municipal Employees. He knew we weren't "voluntarily" paying Federal Income Tax. He bonded the scheme anyway, and became the de facto insurer for it.
We, the gullible, trusting Americans, have been the "marks" in this fraud scheme for 160 years, and nobody expected us to wake up and say, "WTF?"
But we did.
So now Mr. Fink has been out and about trying to get people to sign up as "shareholders" and re-enslave themselves "voluntarily". This activity on his part is what prompted my letter to him yesterday, reminding him that we are back on the land and that shady deceptive sea jurisdiction contracting processes are no longer allowed.
The day before, I reminded him that his company and its affiliates are all chartered under the [Territorial] State of Delaware and sheltering in the Delaware State Trust --- all of which belongs to the actual State known simply as Delaware and the properly constituted Delaware Assembly, so he needs to talk to me and Annie McShane, the Delaware Assembly Coordinator.
The Municipal Government has been folded up like a tent in the night. Look around. See any STATE OF STATE signs anymore?
And as the Municipal Government leaves, the slaves are set free.
This cracks it down to the level of the British Territorial Government and the "presumption" of our "voluntary" indentured servitude. And that's a crock, too.
The plain fact of the matter is that they have acted as our Federal Subcontractors --- employees --- and they have usurped upon and bilked their employers to enrich themselves.
And now Mr. Fink, whose company is on the hook for all of this, is trying to "manage the assets" ---- us ---- and get us to accept a position of "shareholders" in corporations that owe their charters to us.
IF we were to do that and "accept" his assertion that we were shareholders, and U.S. Citizens, we would automatically be re-enslaved, only by the Territorial Government applying the Noahide Laws, an eventuality already prepared for.
But, in fact, and in all venues of the law----
We already own all the corporations chartered under our auspices.
No need for us to accept the much lesser position of "individual shareholders" and give our proxies to political lobbyists who are in fact working for foreign governments ---so that they can make trouble and waste our substance with absolutely no accountability at all.
Been there. Done that.
The corporations chartered by our Territorial minions all belong to us and to our States of the Union, and instead of illegally trying to tax our right to buy and sell whatever we want to buy or sell, the corporations are going to come to heel and pay their share for a change.
Or they all get liquidated and their assets get nationalized.
If they want to live in a paper world and play their paper games, they are welcome to do so; but, in the same token, everything they have built and everything they profit from, is subject to liquidation for cause.
Corporations are allowed to exist "for any lawful purpose" --- not "any legal purpose" ---- a blunt point that the lawyers and attorneys can grasp with no trouble at all.
It would take all of ten (10) minutes to prove that:
(1) the Municipal Government in this country is limited to one mile square in the District of Columbia, and the 185,000 corporate subsidiaries it established on our soil are here illegally;
(2) that the Municipal Government's continuing refusal to abolish slavery is a threat to the health and happiness of every community of mankind on Earth;
(3) that every Municipal Corporation established using our delegated power in fact belongs to us, the American States and People;
(4) that all Territorial Corporations likewise established using our delegated power also belong to us, the American States and People;
(5) that we are not franchisees of corporations; we are in fact the issuers of all the charters of all these Territorial and Municipal Corporations via the delegated powers --- and now, instead of living our lives as slaves to our own creation, the corporations are going to serve us.
Or we will pull their charters and nationalize and re-sell every single corporation that has functioned as an accomplice or collaborator or beneficiary of crime against the Public Interest.
So, Mr. Fink, think carefully. GM, Raytheon, General Electric, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Lockheed, EXXON, Elon Musk, SpaceX..... have you all got your thinking caps on? You owe your existence to our sovereign power.
Without us, you don't have a corporation. Betray us, and you don't have a corporation. Do anything to harm the Public Interest at all, including the individual best interest of our people, and you don't have a corporation.
Gone. Poof! Like a puff of smoke in a strong wind.
Go tell the Prince of Bunk to stick that in his stack and smoke it.

Is COVID-19 Even Real? Coronavirus is NOT COVID-19

Found Here:


By Walter Last        Found here:

There is an intimate connection between lactose as in milk products and the common cold. Earlier biochemists must have known something that modern biochemists have forgotten and the medical profession has never known when they named oxidized galactose 'mucic acid'. I found this out 30 years ago while researching health problems related to lactose.
Lactose or milk-sugar consists of one molecule each of glucose and galactose linked together. Glucose, of course, is our main muscle fuel. Babies need galactose as an important building block of the brain, the central nervous system and several proteins. Because of our bigger and more complex brain mother's milk is even higher in lactose than animal milk to ensure that the baby obtains sufficient galactose.
In later life, very little galactose is needed and this can easily be synthesized from other sugars. Therefore, most of the ingested galactose is converted to glucose in the liver and used as body fuel. However the amount that can be converted is rather limited, even in a healthy liver.
This conversion is a slow and complex process requiring four different enzymes. One of these enzymes is sometimes missing from birth, giving rise to a condition known as galactosaemia. In this case continued milk-feeding leads to a build-up of galactose in the baby and causes cataracts, cirrhosis of the liver and spleen, and mental retardation.
If the liver is not healthy or fully functional, it is even less able to convert galactose. This fact has sometimes been used as a clinical liver-function test. If galactose is injected into someone with a defective liver, most of the galactose will be unused and will show up later in the urine.
Mucic Acid
Unfortunately, under normal conditions only part of the galactose is expelled with the urine. If there is a deficiency of protective antioxidants, then the rest is mainly oxidized to galactaric acid, commonly known as mucic acid. Mucic acid is dangerous to health because it is insoluble. The body cannot let it build up in vital areas and block organ functions or blood circulation. Therefore, it forms the mucic acid into a sticky suspension in water, called mucus.
Thus mucic acid is a main component of pathogenic (disease-producing) mucus. This is very different from endogenous mucus which the body secretes to protect the surface of its mucous membranes, or which is produced in response to the irritation caused by microbes and inflammations. Mucus can also be produced due to high fat levels in the lymph fluid, and may be noticed as a 'lump' in the throat. But none of these have the acid-irritating properties of mucic acid.
The really important difference between mucic acid and endogenous mucus is as follows: endogenous mucus is produced on the outside of the mucous membranes to protect them from damaging environmental influences, while mucic acid is dissolved in the lymphatic fluid. It accumulates on the inside of the mucous membranes and wants to get out.
It is the chief function of the lymphatic system to remove a dangerous substance such as mucic acid from areas of vital importance and transport it to the organs of elimination. It is too dangerous to dispose of through the kidneys, or with bile through the liver, as it would block their outlets, but it has a special affinity for the mucous membranes that line the insides of our body openings. Of prime importance, are the lungs, the respiratory tract and the hollow head spaces, the sinuses and the Eustachian tube (a passage between the mouth and the inner ear).
Mucic acid may also accumulate in these hollow spaces and block their outlets until external factors help to sensitize the mucous membranes sufficiently to allow the mucus to pass through. This is relatively easy in young individuals and those who are over-acid or with a poor sugar metabolism as they have high levels of histamine and inflammatory adrenal hormones. Even minor irritations of the mucous membranes, be it from cold air, dust, air pollution, pollen or germs, will sensitize these to let some of the mucic acid flow out.
Such mucus cleansing may be experienced periodically as a cold, hay fever, wet cough or running nose. In others, the accumulation of mucus, which provides a favourable breeding ground for germs, causes chronic infections in specific areas such as the sinuses, the middle ears, the respiratory tract and the lungs. This may result in a permanent trickle of mucus through the affected mucous membranes.
With a high lactose intake, the lymph channels and lymph glands are usually congested with mucic acid as well. This allows influenza and other infections to spread from the sensitized mucous membranes into the mucus-filled hollow head spaces and into the lymphatic system, causing lymph gland swellings and inflammations.
I have found in many people that the number of colds, influenza and other respiratory infections can be varied at will from none to several per year just by varying the lactose intake. Mucic acid congestion is also the dominant cause of ear infections or glue ear and hearing problems, mainly in children, and especially in Aboriginal children who seem to be inherently very low in the liver enzymes required to convert galactose to glucose.
A friend described to me her visit to an Aboriginal school in Central Australia: " Pretty much all the children had glue ear, and thick green running noses; as they didn't own hankies it was very obvious. In every classroom the teacher was provided with a special microphone as at least 80% of the children were believed to have hearing loss. It was very sad to see - and preventable if they were allowed to return to the bush and their bush food!!! Many processed foods these days have hidden skim milk added, even to things that don't need it - you have to read the fine print."
In most cases it is not a lactose allergy but a galactose overload that is responsible for this excessive mucus. While in the case of those suffering from cow's milk allergy somewhat more lactose may be tolerated when it comes from goat's milk, in most individuals the lactose in goat's milk or in tablets will be equally as mucus-forming as that from cow's milk. If commercial products with added lactase (the lactose-splitting enzyme) are being used by lactase-deficient adults, then this is likely to generate more mucic acid congestion and other health problems in these individuals. 
The Common Cold
It is generally said that without treatment the common cold lasts on average 7 days and with treatment it lasts about one week. This light-hearted quip hides the enormous health damage caused by the common cold, or more specifically by its treatment. It is estimated that the common cold accounts for about 40% of time taken off work and millions of school days missed by children each year. But this is only the tip of the iceberg. The main damage is caused by antibiotic treatment. While not as excessively used at present as it was in the past, it is still quite common despite the medical knowledge that it is not effective against viruses that cause the cold. The rationale used to be that patients wanted something to be done, and also that it may prevent a potential bacterial co-infection of the lower respiratory tract. 
As the common cold is the most frequent infectious disease in humans with the average adult contracting two to four infections a year and the average child getting between 6–12 colds, it is obvious that this amounts to a huge overall prescription of antibiotics. I regard this widespread use of antibiotics as a main cause of diseases in our society (see This is due to the disruptive influence of antibiotics on our intestinal flora with a resulting overgrowth of pathogenic microbes, especially Candida and other fungi. These factors are the basic underlying cause impairing our immune system, and leading to asthma, allergies and autoimmune diseases as well as contributing to the development of cancer, especially of the blood and lymph system.
According to medical theory, the nasal mucus congestion of the common cold is caused by the rhinovirus, and elaborate rituals have been devised to stop or minimize its transmission between individuals. Once I was warned by a friend, who was a medical doctor, not to come close as she had a cold. I told her that is not how it works and that I cannot "catch" her cold. To prove it I asked her to blow her nose and give me the wet tissue. I then wiped that into my nostrils, and sure enough, I did not catch her cold. I also believe that when we cannot catch a cold, we cannot catch influenza either. In the 30 years since I became aware of mucic acid I have not had influenza.
The only commercial remedy that has shown a real effect in shortening the common cold is zinc, and most effective is zinc acetate as patented by George Eby ( Each lozenge releases 18 mg of zinc and needs to be dissolved in the mouth. You can make zinc acetate by dissolving zinc oxide in vinegar. But there is a non-commercial remedy that is even more effective than zinc lozenges, and that is the sugar cure.
The Sugar Cure
Keep a teaspoonful of sugar in the mouth and move it around slightly until it is dissolved after a minute or two, then spit it out and take another teaspoonful. Fine sugar is best for this purpose as it dissolves faster. Continue with this for several hours until the cold symptoms, such as mucus congestion of the nose and sinuses, have disappeared and you can easily breathe through the nose. This also tends to remove any headaches and other discomfort.
I have found that a heavy cold can be stopped in about 4 hours using this method - a light cold may require less time. For influenza or other persistent mucus congestion this may have to be repeated for several days. The sugar draws mucus dissolved in lymph fluid into the mouth and so gradually clears the head spaces. As a precaution, if you feel that you are susceptible to getting colds, or if you have a runny nose or other congestion of head spaces, you may use the sugar cure for one or two hours and repeat it once a week or as required.
Sugar held in the mouth does not damage the teeth as it is too concentrated for bacterial activity, just like pure honey applied to wounds. It is only  after one stops the sugar cure, and remaining sugar gets sufficiently diluted in the mouth that it will encourage bacterial growth, but by then one can rinse the mouth with water. Someone who cannot or does not want to use sugar may also try salt instead, or mix salt with sugar, or use honey.
The effectiveness of the sugar cure shows that it is not the rhinovirus that is the main factor in triggering a cold but rather the presence of mucic acid congestion. This is also confirmed by findings that some individuals are carriers of this virus without getting a cold, while in others cold symptoms may be triggered by cold air without the presence of viruses.
While antimicrobial treatment may ease any symptoms attributable to the virus, as with zinc acetate, it does not stop the typical mucus discharge of a cold until the congestion has been cleared. Nevertheless, with a heavy cold, influenza and other respiratory infections it may be beneficial, in addition to the sugar cure, to use an antimicrobial such as MMS or Lugol's solution for a day or two before switching to high doses of vitamin C.
Using the sugar cure periodically is especially important for elderly individuals who are or have been regularly using milk products and now have a respiratory disease, hearing problems such as deafness, or eye diseases such as cataracts or glaucoma, or poor blood circulation to the brain and dementia, or a combination of any of these. As they are no longer protected by frequent colds they either need to avoid lactose-containing products or regularly use the sugar cure. With chronic congestion of the head spaces and respiratory system it is advisable to use in addition other home remedies for draining mucus, such as postural drainage, nasal irrigation and steam inhalations. 
Related Diseases 
Mucic acid is the underlying cause of some related diseases, especially affecting the respiratory tract, the sinuses, and the inner ears. In this context frequent colds may be seen as a safety valve which prevents or averts more serious health problems due to the accumulation of mucic acid.
Asthma and sinus congestion seem to result mainly from a combination of mucic acid accumulation and sensitivity to moulds as caused by intestinal dysbiosis (overgrowth of the intestinal tract with pathogenic microbes). I remember a patient who was fond of yogurt and, for health reasons, prepared it from skim-milk powder. This produces yogurt with a much higher lactose content than yogurt from full-fat milk. When I persuaded her to use somewhat less yogurt and prepare it only from whole milk without additional skim-milk powder, her asthma disappeared for good. The asthma-causing skim-milk yogurt provided approximately 50 grams of lactose per day, while she was asthma-free on whole-milk yogurt with about 5 to 10 grams of lactose daily.
Lung irritation caused by accumulated mucic acid also means that the lungs are more prone to be affected by food allergies and chemicals. This could result in inflammatory swellings of the bronchial tubes. The mucic acid sensitized mucous membranes of asthmatics also react strongly to air pollutants such as smoke, pollen and sulphur dioxide. Mucus congestion in the lungs allows bacteria to infiltrate. Some strains of these bacteria convert sugars into alginic acid - another type of sticky mucus. Commonly, where there is intestinal dysbiosis combined with Candida overgrowth, the linings of the lungs can become sensitized to airborne moulds. Also dead teeth may induce mucus congestion. With all lung diseases mucic acid congestion must be strictly avoided.
A runny nose can usually be stopped simply by avoiding milk and yogurt. The same underlying cause may lead to hay fever in certain individuals, with pollen taking on the role of the rhinovirus in irritating the mucous membranes inside the nose. In this case the sugar cure may need to be used repeatedly even after avoiding lactose intake.
Influenza is similar to a heavy cold, but with a much stronger viral infection.  I believe the main reason for this stronger infection is the overacidity and more extensive mucus congestion of the lymph system which now provides a breeding ground for the influenza virus. A main effect of this is the depletion of the body stores of vitamin C which then causes the feeling of exhaustion along with muscular aches and pains. Therefore, in addition to the sugar cure, use 10 grams or more of vitamin C and, in case of vomiting and diarrhoea, plenty of juices or other fluids that supply potassium and sodium. With all infections it also helps if there is a good supply of the minerals magnesium, selenium, iodine, and zinc.
Leukaemia may well be another consequence of a lymphatic system that is badly congested with mucic acid. It is especially striking that the incidence of leukaemia among 2-3 year olds is 4 times greater than that of 1 year olds and nearly 10 times greater than that of 19 year olds ( This closely matches the use of cow's milk for these age groups as well as the reduced need for galactose as children grow older.
A key problem with cow’s milk may be the lack of enzymes due to pasteurization. It may not be a coincidence either that Nathan Pritikin, famous for his much-publicized diet to prevent cardiovascular diseases, developed leukaemia. The original Pritikin diet was very high in skim-milk products. I suspect that mucic acid also contributes greatly to lymph cancer. Galactose overload is also linked to cancer of the ovaries.
Leukaemia stands in between the acute mucus-related infections of childhood and the chronic degenerative diseases that commonly develop with advancing age. Because our metabolism and immune system slow down as we become older, our mucous membranes tend to become rather insensitive. As a result, mucus release through colds and runny noses becomes rare, and most of the mucic acid remains stored in the body. This may then lead to respiratory disease, deafness, cataracts and possibly dementia.
Even infants may develop cataracts when they cannot convert galactose to glucose. Therefore, galactose overload is also an important cause of cataracts in adults. Besides cataracts, there are other diseases that are usually considered to be typical for the aging body, but that may occur prematurely in infants with galactosaemia. These include liver degeneration, edema and reduced memory, dementia or senility, the latter being equivalent to mental retardation in infants with galactosaemia.
Mucus congestion may also contribute to degenerative lung diseases such as emphysema. Sometimes the lungs simply fill up with mucus. A young man once died in my presence because his lungs and breathing passage were filled with sticky mucus. He literally drowned in it. With each breath I could hear the air bubbling up through the mucus. Not surprisingly, he was of indigenous (Maori) descent.
The Medical Hygiene Hypothesis
Modern medicine has invented the hygiene hypothesis to explain the greatly increased incidence of infections, allergies and autoimmune diseases in contemporary society. This says that the reason for this dramatic increase is our rather sterile way of living, with children being no longer exposed to the full range of environmental microbes so that they can build up an immunity to them in early life. While there is some truth to this, the main reason is more likely to be iatrogenic - caused by the medical system.
When the intestinal flora of a baby or its mother has been damaged by antibiotics or by being raised on pasteurized milk, then the immune system is so compromised that exposure to a lot of different pathogenic microbes will only make the condition worse. Therefore, the massive amounts of antibiotics used over the decades in the treatment of the common cold and related respiratory infections will be a key reason for the present steep rise in allergies and autoimmune diseases. This goes hand in hand with the medical promotion of pasteurized cow’s milk, and especially of high-lactose skim milk products, as desirable food.
In contrast, the success of the sugar cure in protecting us from the common cold and possibly influenza and respiratory infections shows an important principle of natural medicine: if we remove the cellular metabolic waste on which infectious microbes thrive, then they cannot take hold in a body and cause an infection. Alternatively we may say infections are nature's attempt to heal the body by using microbes to reduce its cellular waste piles. 
How much Lactose is Safe to Use?
Most of the world's adult population - with the exception of the Caucasian race - cannot split lactose into its two components - glucose and galactose. Commonly after the age of three, production of the lactose-splitting enzyme lactase declines, and this can cause indigestion and diarrhea if the diet contains appreciable amounts of lactose. This condition is known as lactose intolerance. However smaller spaced-out amounts may still be tolerated as intestinal bacteria may split or digest some of the ingested lactose.
Lactose intolerant people can tolerate lactose better if fermented milk is used, as in the form of yogurt or kefir, where the lactose is partially split by lactic-acid bacteria. Alternatively, a lactose-splitting enzyme or lactase is now commercially available and may be added to milk. However, lactose intolerance is only a minor problem compared to the much more serious health problems caused by galactose. Lactose intolerance actually appears to be a wise precaution of nature rather than a regrettable accident, because it helps to protect us from the great danger of galactose overload as most Caucasian adults and older children who can digest lactose are unable to use galactose efficiently or dispose of it safely.
In societies that traditionally used milk products, individuals were protected from galactose overload by a series of defences. Commonly lactose content was reduced by fermenting, and making cheese and quark and butter while discarding most of the whey. These individuals had an intestinal flora that converted much of the ingested galactose into energy. They had strong liver enzymes to convert any absorbed galactose into glucose. Finally, on a traditional diet they would have had sufficient antioxidants to minimize the formation of mucic acid, and instead would just discharge any surplus galactose with the urine.  
Most of these protective defences are greatly reduced or no longer available in modern society. Therefore, preventing excessive mucus accumulation in the body is much easier than trying to remove it afterwards. It is a sensible precaution to reduce your intake of lactose to an amount that does not cause mucus congestion or related problems. See Table 1 for the lactose content of some common dairy products.
cheese, quark, cottage cheese
0.1 - 4%
goat's milk
cow's milk
yogurt and ice-cream (with skim-milk powder)
5 - 25%
skim-milk powder
whey powder

With a lactose content of 52 per cent in skim-milk powder, you may now realize how dangerous is the current fad of using low-fat ice-cream, yogurt, cottage cheese and so forth, instead of full-fat products. Such low-fat foods are made from skim-milk powder and may contain three to five times as much lactose as the equivalent full-fat foods. Skim-milk powder is also commonly added to a wide variety of processed foods, such as bread and other baking products, sausages and margarine. Therefore read the label and avoid foods that list 'non-fat milk solids' as one of the ingredients.
I estimate that the average daily amount of lactose that healthy Caucasian adults with good liver functions can handle without the danger of long-term galactose overload is less than 10 grams, or the equivalent of a glass of milk. The liver will be able to convert a larger amount of galactose into glucose if lactose is ingested in several spaced-out amounts rather than in one single lot. However, those who are prone to mucus problems or who are afflicted with a galactose-related disease do well to have a much lower or near zero lactose intake.
The traditional way of reducing the lactose content of milk products is by fermenting with lactic acid bacteria. This converts part of the lactose to lactic acid. The increasing acidity now precipitates most of the protein, mainly casein, which forms into curd on top and clear watery whey underneath the curd. The whey contains most of the remaining lactose together with some dissolved whey protein and the growth factor IGF-1. IGF-1 is implicated as a promoter of tumour growth, and especially of hormone-sensitive tumours (e.g. breast, ovary, uterus, prostate).
If the curd is well drained and preferably pressed down, then it contains very little lactose and IGF-1, as in cheese and fermented cottage cheese, generally called quark. However in Anglo-Saxon countries commercial cottage cheese is not fermented and often made from skim milk, and therefore with a higher lactose content. However there is no problem in using skim milk or skim milk powder when making properly fermented quark. Even commercial yogurt may be made "safe" by fermenting it at home in a yogurt-maker until curd and whey separate, and then use only the pressed curd or quark. 
While animal milk is the highest food source of galactose, there are also some other somewhat surprising sources as can be seen in Table 2. These may perhaps explain the incidence of colds in societies that are not normally using milk products, although western-style processed food containing lactose now seems to be worldwide.
Dried Figs
4100 mg/100 g
3000 mg/100 g
850 mg/100 g
800 mg/100 g
400 mg/100 g

There is also the possibility that other factors may predispose us to catching a cold by providing a suitable breeding ground for the rhinovirus. A possible candidate is the combination of over-acid tissue and lymph fluid with sensitivity to fungi or moulds. This should be addressed if we want to improve our health.
