The Morning Briefing: Rogue FBI Extremist Fever Dream Is Worried About Traddy Catholics at Latin Masses

Top O’ the Briefing

Happy Friday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Lionel feared that he would never live down his unfortunate — and now infamous — “Cheddar Venus de Milo” incident.


In its never-ending search for imaginary extremist monsters under the bed, the Federal Bureau of Investigation thinks it may have found some lurking in Roman Catholic churches around the country.

We have been chronicling for a while that the FBI has become Joe Biden’s Soviet-esque goon squad. Any semblance of a law enforcement agency that could be respected or taken seriously was lost when they decided that soccer moms at school board meetings were domestic terrorists. Any time we hope that the Bureau doesn’t get weirder or more pathetic, it does.

Here’s an excerpt from a deep dive Lincoln wrote yesterday:

As this information comes to light, National Review reports that an internal memo was issued at the FBI’s Richmond field office in January. This time the cause for concern was radical traditionalist Catholic ideology, which “almost certainly presents new mitigation opportunities.” This information came from Kyle Seraphin, who had served as an agent for six years and was suspended without pay in June 2020. He published the document called “Interest of Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists in Radical Traditionalist Catholic Ideology Almost Certainly Presents New Mitigation Opportunities,” on the website You can access it here.

Radical Traditional Catholics, or as the document calls them RTCs, are characterized as rejecting the Second Vatican Council, preferring the Latin Mass, and holding views about other religions that equate to “anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBTQ and white supremacist ideology.” But the writer of the memo also says that there is a difference between the people who hold radical views and those who simply prefer pre-Vatican II policies and the Latin Mass.

I don’t know how they’re weeding out the radicals from the people “who simply prefer pre-Vatican II policies and the Latin Mass.” That seems like a real rear-end covering attempt to avoid looking like religious bigots.


Of course, anti-Catholic bigotry is not only condoned but is also rampant on the left. It’s practically encouraged. The Roman Church is Public Enemy Number One because of its unwavering stance on abortion. We all know how much lefties love killing babies, and woe be unto anyone who gets in their infanticidal way. Let us not forget that the Biden/Garland/Wray FBI sent a swarm of agents into Catholic pro-life activist Mark Houck’s home to arrest him for protecting one of his children from an aggressive abortion ghoul.

Thankfully, the jury didn’t have the same Stasi values as the FBI and Houck was acquitted.

I’ve been occasionally hanging around the Traddy Catholics and going to Latin Mass for a few years now. I’m not a “traditionalist” because I’m OK with either the Extraordinary (Latin) or Ordinary (vernacular) form of the Mass. In theory, I’m supposed to pick one or the other and then get on Catholic Twitter (it’s a thing) and argue about it.

The Traddy Catholics I’ve met at the Latin Mass I go to have been wonderful people. They don’t have a problem with minorities, they have a problem with Vatican II. I can assure you that’s the focus of their disdain. The only extreme position they hold is that they think I’m a bad Catholic for still attending the Novus Ordo Mass.

The Biden-era FBI has a bad and dangerous habit of looking for extremism where there is never going to be any, all the while letting the real extremists run around freely. It’s frightening to think about how many al Qaeda cells or Sinaloa Cartel drug rings might be sprouting up here while our domestic security and law enforcement agents are focused on arresting Catholic dads and surveilling PTA moms.

It’s unnerving to watch Merrick Garland’s Justice Dept. work out his Trump daddy issues for him. Thankfully, the new Republican majority in the House isn’t wasting any time hauling in Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray for some heavy questioning about just what they think they’re doing.


Until these guys are gone, however, I’m going to sit in the back pew at Mass and see if I can spot any feds. Oh, make sure you check out today’s “Bee Me.”

Have a great weekend, everyone.

The Mailbag of Magnificence

Let’s begin our TGIF Mailbag fun with this follow-up from our friend Brice:

I seldom get jealous of anything but being babysat by a young Linda Ronstadt are the things young boys dreams are made of.  And I’m glad Linda and I agree on something which is that you’re funny.  Too bad she makes Chairman Mao look like a RWNJ.

Well, I was an actual baby, so I don’t have any memories of it. And thanks for thinking I’m funny. I’m very distrustful of people who don’t.

Andy writes:

Kruiser, Do you think Stef “Not in my neighborhood” Curry might be ladling a little more soup at the local shelter now that his blatant wokeness has been exposed?

Andy, it would be nice if that would happen. These bleeding-heart wealthy celebs have their hypocrisy exposed a lot, however, and it never seems to move them. Maybe we’ll be pleasantly surprised this time.

Probably not, though.

This is from Chris in Virginia:

Hi Stephen!

Regarding Ol’ Uncle Joe (he’s a thinkin’ kinda slow) and his Malfunction Junction of the Union Speech, I’m imagining him at the helm of the Titanic, gleefully addressing all the folks huddled on the stern as it lift higher and higher out of the water – Hey folks! Everyone is invited to our new indoor swimming pool at the bow. In fact, it’s getting bigger and bigger as we speak! No joke, man! Last one in is a— blub, blub, blub…

Pretty much sums up Captain Crunch-the-Economy’s tenure to date, yes?


I enjoy your work!

Thank you, Chris. I’m grateful that you enjoy what I do here. The indoor pool line is absolute gold. I wish I had the video skills to do something with that.

Sam let me know that he agreed with my SOTU Briefing in a wonderfully succinct way:

Bingo…it’s a lot of crap.

That’s positively Hemingwayesque.

We’ll finish with this from Jim:

Dear Mr. Kruiser;

I want to thank you for being entertaining AND informative: a skill lacking in most national correspondents.

Two things: first, San Bernardino County is the largest county in the nation, larger in mass than most European Nations. So becoming a champion in ANYTHING In SB County is a feat not to be sneezed at.  Laughed at perhaps but ENVER sneezed!

Second, since when did the Democrats EVER exercise “decorum” at a State of the Union address? Speaker Boxwine went so far as to tear in half the printed copy of one of President Trumps addresses, arguably violating Federal Law.  Decorum is evidently ONLY for Republicans!

Keep up the good work and maybe I will run in to you now that we both live in Arizona!

Thank you for your kind words, Jim. I can be both entertaining and informative because I like to read while I’m drinking. Most people choose one or the other, which I feel limits growth.

I’m going to assemble all of these life coaching tips into a small book one day.

Maybe we will run into each other. Keep an eye out for me. I’ll be the guy with a beer and a pretentious book, day-drinking to better myself.

Thank you to all who wrote in this past week. You are the wind beneath my w…ah, I can’t.
