David A. Wemhoff on Henry Luce and the American Century

David A. Wemhoff, a South Bend lawyer, discusses his article "Henry R. Luce and the American Century." The influence of Luce's Time-Life publishing empire and its connections to the CIA are references. Later the discussion moves to an examination of the American Proposition and how the radical doctrine of the separation of church and state has resulted in an atomized and demoralized society and left the country vulnerable to the predations of a corrupt oligarchy.

According to the reader who brought this to our attention, Wemhoff's message is that Americanism was the true message of Vatican II and that three people brought it to us: Henry Luce, Fr. John Courtney Murray and C.D. Jackson, a CIA operative who worked for Henry Luce. This YouTube recording is audio only, but highly worthy of one's time.

"Culture Wars" (An E. Michael Jones product) has carried Wemhoff's columns for quite a while now and it has been great fun to see he and Fr Harrison disagree over Religious Liberty and Americanism and the duty of AmBishops to strive for a Catholic Confessional State (Wemhoff say yes, Fr Brian Harrison, "Not now, not now...") whereas Dr E. Michael Jones thinks Franciscus is the cat's pajamas.

Well, Mr. Wemhoff is right and Dr. Jones is to be congratulated for giving his columnists such liberty to write what they believe.

On the other hand, Wemhoff thinks D.H. is fully in line with Traditional Doctrine.

Ratzinger's embrace of Americanism



Willard Ward's bio of Mrs. Luce is interesting in this regard. They all did LSD, a la an episode of 'Mad Men.'
