This most recent video from Fr. Altman was published 9/20/20
This is a very good, must-see interview of Fr. Altman with Alpha News on 9/15/20 (Alpha News is the group who produced the viral video above and also the original video that Fr. Altman did about democrats.)
This video of Father James Altman of Wisconsin entitled 'You cannot be Catholic & a Democrat. Period' was posted on August 30, 2020. The 10-minute video immediately went super-viral.

STATEMENT REGARDING FATHER JAMES ALTMAN
Fr. James Altman has become a social media phenomenon and is now a main stream media story. The amount of calls and emails we are receiving at the Diocesan offices show how divisive he is. I am being pressured by both sides for a comment; one side holds him up as a hero or a prophet, the other side condemns him and vilifies him and demands I silence him.
As I review Fr. Altman’s latest video statement of 30 August 2020, I understand the undeniable truth that motivates his message. When we approach issues that are contradictory to the Faith and teachings of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church, particularly on abortion and other life issues, we should invite dialogue and heart-felt conversion to the truth. Our approach must never seek to divide, isolate and condemn.
That being said it is not only the underlying truth that needs to be evaluated but also the manner of delivery and the tone of his message. Unfortunately, the tone Fr. Altman offers comes off as angry and judgmental, lacking any charity and in a way that causes scandal both in the Church and in society. His generalization and condemnation of entire groups of people is completely inappropriate and not in keeping with our values or the life of virtue.
I am applying Gospel principles to the correction of Fr. Altman. “If your brother does something wrong to you, go to him. Talk alone to him and tell him what he has done. If he listens to you, you have kept your brother as a friend. But if he does not listen to you, take one or two others with you to talk to him.” (Mt 18:15-16).
I have begun this process, not in the bright light of the public arena, but as the Gospel dictates, in private. Canon law indicates that before penalties are imposed, we need to ensure that fraternal correction, rebuke or other means of pastoral solicitude will not be sufficient to repair the scandal (can. 1341).
Most people expect a decisive move from me, one way or another. Many suggest immediate penalties that will utterly silence him; others call for complete and unwavering support of his views. Canonical penalties are not far away if my attempts at fraternal correction do not work. I pray that Fr. Altman’s heart and eyes might be open to the error of his ways and that he might take steps to correct his behavior and heal the wound he has inflicted on the Body of Christ.
Pray for me as I address this issue, and pray for Fr. Altman that he might hear and respond to my fraternal correction. Finally, please pray for the Church that we might seek the truth in charity and apply it in our daily actions.

After His Emminence statement, Fr. Altman posted a homily entitled 'Clarity is Charity' on 9/10/20. Fr. Altman was in no way apologetic or conciliatory, he doubled down and said that sinners must hear the truth out of love. He ended his homily noting that this might be the last live-stream Mass he is allowed to do, and added at the end of Mass that the schoolchildren were not at Mass today because of all the vile and hateful threats recieved to the parish and Diocese, whom Fr. Altman says was done at the behest of Fr. James Martin (whom in my opinion is a very disgusting, pro-homosexual, modernist priest.)
Watch Fr. Altman's (final?) broadcast homily here:
Fr. Altman discussed the controversy on the 'U.S. Grace Force' podcast on September 9. This is worth a watch.
Here's a recent interview with Fr. Altman with 2 of his priest friends. Fr Altman is all into the New World Order, CIA false flags, etc. I took notes. To save time and see only Fr. Altman's segments go to minute 16:40, Then to minute 24:19, Then minute 56.

Here's Altman interview part 2.
Interview with Dr. Taylor Marshall b 9/11/20
Here's an email I sent to Lew Rockwell, who served as Congressman Dr. Ron Paul's chief of staff.
Hi Lew, thanks so much for posting my articles about the various priests resisting the covid lies. ( https://www.lewrockwell.com/political-theatre/exciting-and-encouraging/
The thing I wonder is, is it as relevant as I believe that more priests are speaking out against the covid lies, or is it that it's only exciting because of my own Catholic-based perspective? I would hope that intellectual /ideological movements & persuasion (which you are an expert at & icon of) would be bolstered by clergy.
So I'm not sure how much momentum these priests will actually give to the truth, or if it's only a tiny percent of the populace who is clued into this resistance.
An update on Fr. James Altman of Wisconsin. He posted a video which went viral last week entitled 'You cannot be Catholic & a Democrat. Period.'
Here is his Bishop's statement on the matter as well as a homily posted by Fr. Altman just one hour ago entitled 'Clarity is Charity.' (Also, an interview with Fr. Altman discussing the matter on 9/9.): https://nofacemask.blogspot.com/2020/09/archdiocese-of-la-crosse-wi-responds-to.html
I do think it was imprudent for Fr Altman not to see that this very partisan homily could cause backlash & potentially cause him to be muzzled altogether.
Meanwhile in the case of Fr. Daniel Nolan FSSP, who caused a stir by talking about the 'scamdemic' and suggesting that people not wear masks, he has reportedly been henceforth prevented by his superiors at FSSP from posting his homilies online- which in my opinion is a terrible capitulation to the 'cancel culture.'
Most ironically, the FSSP just published a missive purportedly railing against that very 'cancel culture' on September 4, the very same week that they muzzled Fr. Nolan. https://fssp.com/cancellation-policy/
Here is Fr. Isaac Relyea's take on the Fr. Nolan situation

Fr. Isaac is a Franciscan but has given his classic mission on 'The Last 4 Things' at FSSP parishes. Audio from Fr. Isaac's 2007 mission can be found at AudioSancto.org. I highly recommend it.
