Our Charlie with the US Grace Force

For those who may not be aware or who have not had the opportunity to view it, Charlie was interviewed by Fr. Richard Heilman and Doug Barry of the US Grace Force. Everything about this video is delightful and heartening, filled with signs of hope. Kick back and enjoy, Friends!

I L.O.V.E. the title of this episode. It’s a keeper, a byword and a right fine motto.

“Evil Is Powerless If The Good Are Unafraid”

The intro on You Tube: You may have heard about Charlie Johnston particularly before the 2016 election, where he wrote extensively about some very serious matters that were about to unravel in the US and the world around election time. Things remained relatively calm then….but what he predicted was going to happen then, is unfolding in spades now. Charlie Johnston is intensely interesting. Besides that, he’s also incredibly entertaining and a joy to be with, a devout Catholic and accomplished journalist. Charlie is a former newspaper editor, radio talk show host, and political consultant. From 2011-2012, he walked 3,200 miles across the country, sleeping in the woods, meeting people, and praying as he went. He writes on cultural, global, and political issues from an orthodox Catholic perspective. You won’t want to miss Charlie’s insights into what we’re dealing with in the culture and in the Church.

      Two of my BFF’s, Charlie and Fr. Heilman together for a whole hour. And hubby and I couldn’t help ourselves…..every time CJ gave his signature chuckle, we just dissolved in laughter. It’s just so contagious!

        1. Hi Joanne,

          I’ve spent the last couple of years watching it all unfold and been horrified at how easily people are accepting the big ‘lie’ “They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness” 2 Thess 2 10 Yes it will get so much worse and I pray to God that I will be faithful to the end.

          Praying for all in here.

  1. a very heartfelt hello (from Bavaria/Germany) … Dear Charlie, I just finished listening to the latest US Grace Force podcast (as I do almost every week) … when I saw the notification in my inbox this morning and realized it was you they did the show with, I listened to it right away. And what a wonderful show it was!!!! … as with all of your written pieces, so also here: you state things sooo beautifully, head-on, wise AND practical that I simply had to write and let you know HOW MUCH I DID ENJOY IT!!! … I have been following you for many years and am also on your email list … things are not pretty here right now, in lockdown since end of October and now a new law to be passed tomorrow which will give Ms. Merkel ALL the powers … she plans on putting us under an even harder lockdown and draconian measures … but, of course, I am with you and look forward to GOD’s even GREATER RESET and the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Our Lady. Thank you for so wonderfully putting things in the right perspective and cheering us on … MAY OUR LORD AND OUR LADY BLESS YOU ALL ABUNDANTLY!!! …

I do read on Tuesdays, so praise the Lord we can go once a week. what a blessing it has been in this mess. I don’t know what we would have done without it. There’s only been Mass for 3 1/2 months in the last 15.

          1. Missy, I also read, and support, Gript.ie. What a relief to have it boldly telling the Truth amid all the lies, half-lies and distortions that the proponents of liberalism and wokeism seem to find necessary to support their narrative, strangely enough. There is also the Dominican publication “Alive”, which is in a similar vein. and is available online, with the complete archive. And of course there’s “Catholic Voice”.

            At the beginning of Lent our local Dominicans resumed confessions, with Adoration, on Saturdays. They are the only church in a town with 6 other catholic churches to be doing so, which speaks volumes. That will not be forgotten when all this is over. Another church a couple of miles away has put up loudspeakers to the surrounding carpark and cemetery, and they distribute Communion outside, where I was able to receive on Mercy Sunday and yesterday (18th), thank God. So far there has been no interference – how ironic to have to write that in this country!! And ironic also to reflect that less than a mile from the same church there’s a 17th/18th century Mass rock. The symbolism is not lost on many.

            1. Jaykay, even though they say Mass will be back in May, with the underhanded things going on, I can’t believe all the Mass rocks won’t need some polishing. I’m sorry you hadn’t had confession until lent. At least we have had that. Love the Dominicans. My friend’s brother is Fr. Conor at st. Saviour’s. He’s fab.
              I’m glad you have priests bringing communion outside. The new archbishop put a stop to that back in March along with adoration. The sad thing about Mass coming back is we will know it can always be taken away again and likely will.

              I started a youtube prayer channel this lent if you’re interested (or anyone else). It’s a little help at this time plus great pictures around Dublin.

Things have been a little “icky” and sweet lately in my neck of the woods and this just really helped me a lot!!! Go Charlie!!! Sort of funny, after Mass this morning my best church friend Char shared this Bible passage with me and it’s going on my bathroom mirror along with Charlie’s and Fr Heilman’s motto on this grace force podcast!!!

  6. Thanks Beckita. This video of Charlie is quickly making its rounds with my friends and family and those who have joined CORAC.

    Wanted to say a quick word about looming $$ hyperinflation $$. This news is starting to gain traction. I could post videos as I have in the past, but there are plenty of folks out there expressing genuine concern. It looks like inflation is here and is being made worse by those like the Fed who are employing deceptive economic measurements to say everything is OK, measures that omit food and energy in their calculations (as Charlie has mentioned in the past). Plus there is the continued frantic printing of money by the Fed that has not slowed down when it should have stopped long ago. The more dollars that the Fed prints, the less purchasing power our currency has. The supply shortages that we are seeing (because of Covid and whatever other reasons, either real or contrived ie Suez Canal) also seem to be creating an increase in demand that is pushing people to spend their money more urgently. And how about the 2.6 million people whose mortgage payments are on hold? And all the unemployed and decrease in productivity thanks to all the govt assistance and stimulus checks? Oh boy.

    Anyway, this topic is way beyond my knowledge but I just wanted to relay what a local friend in South Dakota said. He is member of one of the largest ranching families in SD. They own an enormous amount of property for farming and ranching and a staggering number of cattle. He was lamenting the drought we’ve been in for many months now, worst in decades, and how prices for feed and corn and oats and soy and winter wheat and summer wheat and fuel and all the things needed for farming and ranching are increasing dramatically. Smart guy, manages a very successful business, and he actually used the word “HYPERINFLATION” to describe the situation he is in. I stopped him to clarify that word, and he said yes, hyperinflation. What a rancher sees is different than what many other Americans might see that could indicate our country’s economic health, although we too are noticing increased prices for food and gas. I have learned lately that what goes on with commodities and beef and goods in Asia and Africa and South America directly affect things in the US.

    If and when we have hyperinflation, things will get bad like they did in the Weimar Republic and North Korea and Venezuela and Greece and Yugoslavia and Zimbabwe and Hungary over the past century. We here won’t be surprised when it comes, but it’s still gonna hurt pretty bad.

    On a positive note, this friend invited me to witness their annual bull sale. It’s a big event and folks come in from all across the US to buy their livestock. He promised there will be plenty of beef and booze and they didn’t want me to miss it this weekend. I actually insisted he put me to work, opening gates or whatever. I’m very excited about this — I’ve been yearning to participate in some – any – ranching activity because most of my patients are ranchers and so have unique medical issues related to that tough livelihood. Covid last year took away several opportunities after I received invites from the local ranchers in Broadus Montana to help their families with calving and branding.

    They will be offering these beauties, called Charolais.

In Mike Maloney’s well produced “Hidden Secrets of Money”, this historical phenomenon will be upon us shortly. And invariably, our government will make the wrong decision that all those governments before us have done which will just exacerbated the problem: they will just keep printing more paper money in a desperate yet futile attempt to stave off the inevitable. Oh boy (says Sam Beckett)! Here we go! It’s our turn! 😬

      1. I have a theory about why Rush Limbaugh passed away when he did: Because his mission was accomplished and God has taken him home now. Everything that needed to be said Rush has said. Most everyone that needed to be converted to conservatism has been converted and millions of eyes have been opened. Praise God for that.

        While I appreciate what Tucker Carlson stands for, frankly I’m tired of listening to conservative entertainers speak. TC uses sarcasm and carefully crafted monologues that benefit only conservative ears which sound good in real time and less so when analyzed carefully, but he offers no solutions to the problems we face, only that they are here. For example, we have known about the Democrat’s desire for illegal immigrants to flood into our country in large numbers to change voting in their favor for over 15 years now. It’s very old news. It’s too late for that. Tucker points out the obvious and offers no solutions whatsoever for action, only more beautifully presented words.

        Thus…. we have CORAC.

They can get on the L.A. bus to Pelosi’s House, or the D.C. bus to Biden’s House. Make your selection, because nobody spends the night in Texas!

    2. Patrick of SD
      We have noticed a dramatic increase in the price of seeds from the growers we purchased from this spring. Not sure if it is inflation or not. Last year when governors ordered the shut downs, farmers who grow crops for seed were not deemed essential and were shut down. Therefore, their crops never got planted leading to a shortage of seeds this year. Dry beans are near impossible to get ahold of. We have been able to absorb the cost this year on most seeds but if the increases happen again next year we will be forced to raise prices. We have had customers thank us this year for not price gouging like other seeds companies. I don’t think they are price gouging(some are probably), I think they are being forced to raise their prices to cover costs and overhead. We are a home-based business so we don’t have much for overhead so we have been able to absorb costs (so far). Also the cost of paper for seed envelopes went up 10% this April, USPS postage had gone up 12% or so. Definitely some kind of inflation is going on.

I found I needed to place my order quickly because after I chose the seeds I wanted, within a couple days at least 6 or 8 items vanished from my shopping cart because I waited too long!

          Please contact us through our website and let us know which seeds you were not able to order. We have been getting shipments in from different suppliers and we may have what you were looking for. Your welcome for not raising prices although I’m not sure how long that will last, if we start running a negative cash flow do to cost increases, we will have to raise them.

Honestly I’m not sure what the items were now, definitely pinto beans and another dry bean variety, I think a standard yellow corn, maybe rhubarb, common items, but I can’t be sure because you offered so much and I order plenty of heirloom seeds from you, thousands in fact. I think the type I went most bananas over was your tomatoes! 🍅 I got over half a dozen types. 🙂 Thanks for your online store! I’ll revisit it. And if you gotta raise prices, that’s business and we understand.

    1. Here’s another reason, (apologies if previously posted), one can surmise it violates section 2295 of CCC.
      ‘Research or experimentation on the human being cannot legitimate acts that are in themselves contrary to the dignity of persons and to the moral law. The subjects’ potential consent does not justify such acts. Experimentation on human beings is not morally legitimate if it exposes the subject’s life or physical and psychological integrity to disproportionate or avoidable risks. Experimentation on human beings does not conform to the dignity of the person if it takes place without the informed consent of the subject or those who legitimately speak for him. ‘

  7. Hi everyone, a recent article on 79days.news “US Navy Announces New Technology That Can Change The Fabric Of Reality” makes a good point if the covid scamdemic falls apart like the various forms “climate change, global warming, & ice age” scams, then the next big scam/deception could be alien overlords pretending to be our creators, and forcing it’s will upon humanity which would be another form of the “great reset”, genetic modifications, enslavement, & mass genocide that the globalist elites wish to do to humanity.

    Research along the lines of Nicola Tesla is discouraged, so humanity’s scientific discoveries are limited. Something as simple as adding spin to a football breaks the currently understood laws of Newton & Einstein’s theory of relativity. The UFO phenomenon could of been a top secret Tesla experiments & projects all along…

    All the Hollywood space & alien indoctrination may of had it’s origins with the globalists elite for a future deception.

  8. In the construction industry wood prices have increased 150% in the last year alone and is slated to rise further. The other problem is lack of workers since the people on unemployment are making more to stay home so they just don’t show up to interviews or after an interview don’t call back when offered employment. Almost every business around here has a “Hireing Now” sign up! The nanny state has produced a bunch of dependants looking for “mom” to care for them while they lounge around. So much for the Scripture passage that says: “if you don’t work you don’t eat! (2 Thessalonians 3:10).

    1. If the government can’t implement a $15 hour minimum wage. They offer unemployment and free money to force businesses to raise their starting wage to $15 hour so people will come to work. All that will do is force businesses to either close or raise their prices which will be passed on to consumers who are now making $15 hour.

  16. Wow Charlie, this is a great writing of yours as the ALL are! Loved your talk with Fr. Heilman and Doug Barry too, awesome!! May I humbly write this story about me, yup about me and the happenings that happened to me…Beings we are still in Easter Season, I feel I am prompted by the Holy Spirit and I HAVE to write and post here. Yeah I have as of the last few months yet many more too, I feel guilty for not interchanging with all of you.. been lurking here, sucking in and absorbing any and all information from this site that I can. This site is really awesome and helps keep me in line in a very good way First and foremost, I am a sinner, I hate to be but I still am! With that said, during Holy Week I had ‘thought of my many sins, weighing them out while still trying to protect myself that I, out loud, ‘thought prayed’ to God and thought to Him Dear Lord I
    Will Have To Be Hit On The head To Change’ as I thought of my sins…. WELL, that Holy Thursday Night as I lay in bed…SOMETHING hit me on my forehead! WHAT THE HECK WAS THAT?! i IMMEDIATELY felt what hit me smack dab in the middle of my forehead. I could not recognize it in my sleepy hands all the while wondering what the heck is this?! So I got up and after seeing it in my hand in my nightlight glow I realized it was my new fresh woven palm from Palm Sunday! I, as I have always done in all previous years, securely positioned the artful palm between my Jesus and Mary busts hanging on the wall over my bed. NO palms have EVER fallen from there in the 43 years of my marriage. Anyway, that palm landed on my forehead, thus I was hit in the head by Divine Providence and there are no plainer words for it! I actually, once I realized what it was, laughed out loud and thanked God for the sign. What have I learned? I learned that God DOES hear and answer our inner most thoughts for sure. What a great delight! I thanked Jesus as I climbed back in bed and went back to sleep with a great and thankful smile on my face and from my mouth a thank you Jesus, You Hear Me I Know! I am still trying to change; but I KNOW; i AM NOT ALONE! i HOPE this brings encouragement to all who read this. Thoughtfully, with Christ. Mary

  18. Regarding today’s reading (J 6,16-21), I have never paid attention to this detail:
    “They wanted to take him into the boat, BUT THE BOAT IMMEDIATELY ARRIVED AT THE SHORE to which they were heading”. So it was not only that Jesus was walking on the sea, but also Jesus seeing that “sea was stirred up because a strong wind was blowing” kind of teleported/accelerated the boat to the very shore again suspending the laws of physics. So in other words, in Jesus we shall not fear anything. This is why we need JCh vaccine (free and 100% efficient), namely Eucharist, for Covid and everything! Pastors, even if your churches are closed, please distribute the JCh vaccine efficiently in the church parking lots! As the saying goes, if there is a will, there is a way.

    2. I’m no expert on what may or may not happen and when (although the ‘everything bubble’ bursting, and subsequent collapse in currency and the markets is inevitable, and right soon), but I’ve advised on moving into hard assets for over a decade (e.g. – gold, silver, etc… the go-to for real money in times of distress). Sure, you can’t eat gold, but you can leverage it smartly when needs be and it always holds some dependable value.

      Forget paper markets (witness the last tragedy in major losses in the paper gold market), or anything leveraged with an endless array of idiotic debt instruments. Obviously you can’t eat paper, and certainly can’t trade for anything useful with a handful in times of need, unless someone happens to highly value it as kindling.

      Now, holding onto anything in the coming days is probably another matter entirely.

      More importantly, I’ve advised more on taking stock of what’s really needed, culling the list… then culling it some more for ourselves, while seriously considering the needs of others. Shelter, food, water (in that exact order) for starters. Joseph got it done nicely in agent Egypt based on his faith. In practical terms, I believe he got it done and saved many because his first interest was truly the welfare of others, rather than taking personal advantage of his position at the head of the royal court, wealth and resources at this disposal.

      Interesting that a key component was prudently managing the granary. Grain for bread. Bread for living. What, or Who, is the old Testament alluding to and how do we best apply that ancient lesson in our times?

      I am NOT advocating that we trust in Jesus while sitting on our butts. I am advocating that we trust in Jesus, stay nimble and boldly act when we’re called and supported by His strength. The rest is merely details.

I mentioned precious metals because I wanted to distinguish having something physical in your hands rather than the wisp of smoke in the paper markets. Other examples include gas and similar resources, equipment, machinery, vehicles (which can be modified to be used as machinery), rice, beans, jam… and any other basic good that is interchangeable with other goods, or can be traded for another good. Not the way the current commodities markets are manipulated and work, but the way it worked between Pa Ingalls and Nels Oleson in Walnut Grove. Alas, it was the Harriet Oleson’s of the world that overcomplicated it.

        2. No matter what happens people are going to have to rely on others to survive. No one is an island unto themselves as God created us to “share” ourselves in service to others to learn to love through this sharing and interdependence. Building community and sharing our resources will strengthen our blessings from above as we seek to survive these times.
          Jesus told us not to be overly concerned with the body. This is key here since fear makes us more concerned with “shelter, water and food” when the key is God, grace and love” as the spiritual food Jesus had rather we sought.
          Joseph not only fed and protected the Egyptians but the surrounding nations and the Egyptians became rich and powerful for hundreds of years afterwards because Pharo put his trust in Joseph and through Him, in God. We who desire and seek God first know this blessing will follow us in the years to come because it is “through Him all good things come”.
          So, prepare your shelters, water and food in a spirit of trust remembering these temporal things will not last unless they are accompanied by caring, sharing and true love and the hope we will not only get through this but we have God’s promise of better things to come both temporal and eternal.

      1. Prudence is wise, at this stage of the game the average person should have between a minimum of 2 weeks to a maximum of 3 months worth of food on hand. Storing years worth of food doesn’t seem right nor practical.

        Don’t be like the man that drowned in a flood because he was waiting & believing that God would come save him in person.

  22. Oh dear Beckita! So sorry for my not acknowledging you for you are the one that put this post out in the first place, NOT Charlie!! I had been reading previous posts that Charlie had previously written and after that I switched to this post and had Charlies past post in mind when I commented here yesterday to the video with Fr. Heilman and Doug Barry, and I mistakingly gave Charlie credit for this latest post
    !!! Hahaha, it is truly kinda funny and I am sure Charlie doesn’t mind! Hehehe! Anyway, I want to thank you for your work here on this site and making sure all rolls smoothly! My apologies Beckita for my own mixup!

    1. No worries, Mary. Not at all. Just so grateful for the interview, especially since the Grace Force has a great following of folks who will be heartened by CORAC’s good works and will join in the movement! Thanks for your kindness, Mary. 😊

  23. After some thoughts and consulting with Our Father, I have been nudged or so I feel I have, into signing up with Corac. Went to the sign up page, put my little details in it as it had asked and hit submit! It did not take. It did not accept me. Does that mean that I am out of the woods? Haha!! Maybe I surpassed the character limit of explanation into my ‘what I can do’ stuff? Seriously I really do not like to sign up for things, especially the unknown but I feel prompted enough by the powers that be to do so. Now what. Gee, I hit the Submit button more than once and each time it would not take. Does this mean that I will be Coracless? Haha! Any insight would be appreciated.

    A Summary of our Life

    Have you ever noticed in the Apostles’ Creed how quickly we pass over the earthly life of our Lord? Born, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, rose from the dead. We say nothing about the beatitudes, nothing about miracles. Just he was born, suffered, died, and rose again. Just those three. That’s all there is in life. We’re born; the earthly life is passed over, because all that matters concerning an earthly life is whether we are doing the will of God. And then, resurrection. First, we are born to Christ in baptism. Remember that our Lord was born into a sinful, sorrowful humanity. If we follow him as a rule of life, we are born into that kind of a world: the poor, the afflicted, the sick, the ignorant. That is why Jesus’ birth was in a stable. He identified with the poor. Here is the second great commandment: love your neighbor. The fundamental reason for loving our neighbor is because we’re born into the same humanity that our Lord was born into, and we must help redeem it. Second, he suffered and was crucified. We suffer. Our Lord said, ‘In this world you will have tribulation.’ We are given crosses. We bear the cross for him and with him, recalling always what he did for us. And finally, he rose from the dead. Scripture says of our Blessed Lord, ‘having joy set before him, he endured the cross.’ That means that in any kind of trial which we have, there should be a hidden gladness. Why? Because we’re assured of the resurrection. Even though God does send us some kind of trial, if we’ve borne his cross, we can be absolutely sure of the crown.

    1. Thank you for sharing this For the Sake. I like that he speaks so plainly but with conviction. “If we’ve borne his cross, we can be absolutely sure of the crown.” I love AB Sheen. Such a wise and spirit filled man.

  26. An uptick of Abortions and Fetal Parts for experimentation lately – or maybe just more reporting on it. So very sad that our government is now in the business of selling/buying baby parts. God save the preborn.

    Give us a better solution oh dear Jesus…

  31. Well, Planned Parenthood has finally admitted to its racist roots! Alexis McGill Johnson, CEO of Planned Parenthood, published an op-ed in the New York Times on April 17 titled “I’m the Head of Planned Parenthood. We’re Done Making Excuses for Our Founder.” You can read it here: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/17/opinion/planned-parenthood-margaret-sanger.html
    Despite the headline, I wouldn’t say this op-ed is a step in the right direction. They still very much promote abortion, along with a host of other morally compromised causes.

  32. Hi! I just tried to sign into the CORAC site and got what looks like an evil masked avatar with this message, “You have been locked out due to too many attempts to access a file that doesn’t exist.”
    I only tried to log in once. Anyone else having this problem?


    1. I have been having the exact same problem. I sent an email to the corac support email and my region leader and have yet to hear back from the corac support. My region leader was not familiar with the issue and unable to provide any guidance. I followed all the steps listed in the User help section to no avail. I even downloaded other browsers… I had really hoped to signup for the conference. Oh well.

        1. Searching some more, the masked avatar, singingjuls mentioned (and I keep seeing also) appears to be associated with something called “Defender”, a part of WordPress security (or Defender Pro, an upgraded product). If others are not having the same issue, I don’t know why singingjuls and I are. Was going to try and create a new registration, but cannot do that either.

            The "Defender" is a bit daunting. Once we are up and running, making your reservation should be smooth sailing.

        2. support@corac.com please email them. I got locked out when I just signed off. This is odd, indeed but par for the cyber course in the grand scheme of things! Please report your issue to support and check back in. This is my third report in two days. You are in good company. ❤

    2. Please report any technical difficulties with our CORAC website to support@corac.co. I was locked out yesterday and today, and was freed up to log in shortly after I reported the matter to support. These newest issues stem from maintenance being done on the the server. We apologize for the inconvenience and we are on it! ❤

      1. Thanks Jen, will do. I couldn’t remember the support address. I have to remember to save it in my contacts this time. And…I understand maintenance issues. Thought it might be a technical thing. 😉
