People who resisted COVID jabs are ‘superheroes’ who ‘embody the best of humanity.’ French General: “Even if I were fully vaccinated, I would admire the unvaccinated for standing up to the greatest pressure I have ever seen, including from spouses, parents, children, friends, colleagues, and doctors.”

(LifeSiteNews) – France’s General Christian Blanchon published a tribute letter to the unvaccinated in September 2022, calling citizens who refused the COVID injections “superheroes.” 

The letter made waves in Europe and around the world among people critical of draconian COVID policies but was largely ignored by the mainstream press. 

The text of the soldier’s [general’s] letter offers encouragement to those who resisted the experimental COVID jabs that were developed, according to the recent admission of a Pfizer executive, “at the speed of science” and not thoroughly tested before being introduced to the market. 

Blanchon praises the courage of the unvaccinated who often faced immense pressure from doctors, colleagues, friends, and even family members. He said that those who resisted the COVID jabs “embody the best of humanity” and are “superheroes.” 

The French military general also alluded to a battle between light and darkness as he described the unvaccinated as “the soldiers that any army of light wishes to have in its ranks” and when he added that they are “heroes born among ordinary men who shine in the dark.” 

Blanchon stated that “we now know who the resisters are on planet Earth,” referring to the refusal of the unvaccinated to give in to the immense pressure they faced. 

Here is the full statement translated into English: 

Even if I were fully vaccinated, I would admire the unvaccinated for standing up to the greatest pressure I have ever seen, including from spouses, parents, children, friends, colleagues, and doctors. 

People who have been capable of such personality, courage, and such critical ability undoubtedly embody the best of humanity. 

They are found everywhere, in all ages, levels of education, countries, and opinions. 

They are of a particular kind; these are the soldiers that any army of light wishes to have in its ranks. 

They are the parents that every child wishes to have and the children that every parent dreams of having. 

They are beings above the average of their societies; they are the essence of the peoples who have built all cultures and conquered horizons. 

They are there, by your side, they seem normal, but they are superheroes. 

They did what others could not do; they were the tree that withstood the hurricane of insults, discrimination, and social exclusion. 

And they did it because they thought they were alone and believed they were alone. 

Excluded from their families’ Christmas tables, they have never seen anything so cruel. They lost their jobs, let their careers sink, and had no more money… but they didn’t care. They suffered immeasurable discrimination, denunciations, betrayals, and humiliation… but they continued. 

Never before in humanity has there been such a casting; we now know who the resisters are on planet Earth. 

Women, men, old, young, rich, poor, of all races and all religions, the unvaccinated, the chosen ones of the invisible ark, the only ones who managed to resist when everything fell apart. Collapsed. 

You’ve passed an unimaginable test that many of the toughest marines, commandos, green berets, astronauts, and geniuses couldn’t pass. 

You are made of the stuff of the greatest that ever lived, those heroes born among ordinary men who shine in the dark.” 


Cardinal Pell: Suicidal Synod?

A “must hear” for those seeking Truth; why the Synod “is said to be about legitimizing sodomy … yet having no authority.” Hear how Cardinal Sarah’s Traditional Mass in Paris for Chartres Pilgrimage was cancelled by the Cardinal of Paris. How Catholics must fight for their Faith, for the sake of the world. Listen to the interview by Raymond Arroyo with Cardinal Mueller on how the Synod’s “Welcoming” process contradicts Doctrine just like the “old heresy of Arianism!” A “pop-culture” for Vatican III ?

I have been asked why I am no longer posting on CF. It would be fair to say that the attached article from over a year ago by Lifesite News really summarizes the troubling broth in which we stew, that so much else seems unimportant by comparison.

I will resume again, but not yet. There is too much still to ferret out for the individual soul from the day when the public Mass ceased. The magnitude of what happened has barely been touched. We’ve hardly begun.

On Mother’s Passing

May 2nd, 2022, Promulgated by Diane Harris

Departures:  On Mother’s Passing



The week you were buried

I dug up the Peace Rose

you had so lovingly tended.

It was more rescue than theft.


How could I have left her

to a new owner’s whims?

To one heedless of her name

or unaware of her needs?


Interred with skill, and fed,

she should have bloomed anew,

or at least leafed lustily

in wordless gratitude.


Then you, I mean she, vanished!

Missing, with only emptiness

to prove she had been here,

or that I had ever cared.


I could have endured the loss

had she departed as you did,

a petal at a time, wafted away

by dementia’s chill hand.


But memory, too, was rooted up,

gone to a place unknown.

I can only follow your flight path

with my own wind-shaken petals.

Do you hear what I hear?

Perhaps I hear this question more than some because of my vax warnings or postings, or maybe it is about coming out of a science background, but the gist of the question is: “I wish I’d never gotten the jab; how can I get rid of it (i.e. detox from the shot)?

The quick answer is ‘you can’t.’  But it is not as hopeless as one might think. If you didn’t die as a proximate reaction to the shot itself, and were not a willing acceptor of the ‘mark of the beast,’ and are no longer taking any ‘jabs,’ then there are some things that you might be able to do to shift the odds toward your favor, even if not fully into your favor. The details are in this link. Here’s how to detox from the COVID spike protein – from the jab or the virus – LifeSite (

Mostly it is about belatedly boosting our immune systems, which is not an unreasonable strategy. It can also be used to detox from having contracted COVID. As the implausibility of any efficacy dawns on those who suffered through being ‘forced’ to vax, as we see pilots rehired quietly, military careers resuscitated, students readmitted to their coursework without vaxxing, and truckers honored as true heroes, the power agenda becomes even more evident. At least by the time the ’17th round of jab’ is in process, maybe we’ll get the message. Meanwhile, might not repeated jabs counteract efforts to heal from what has already been administered?  You think?





247 Years Ago

April 18th, 2022, Promulgated by Diane Harris

Two hundred forty-seven years ago, April 19, 1775 to be exact, Concord Bridge was the site of the Shot Heard Round the World! It was a shot for freedom, and the catalyst to begin the Revolutionary War. How ironic it is that in our very years there should again be a shot heard around the world,  a ‘jab’ as some might call it, threatening our own freedom with lock-downs, masks and penalties, putting heroes on the ‘firing line’ in a different way, i.e. being ‘fired’ from jobs for refusing to take the hit, for exercising hard-won rights for which others have often surrendered their lives. It is a sad evolution of the shot for freedom into no real freedom from the shot. It took farmers then, and truckers now, to demonstrate  that we inherited something worth protecting, the right to follow our consciences, a right that comes from God, not from collusion of government, medical, tech, media and finance.
