Since when has Francis the Apostate ever Confronted Homosexual Cleric Child Rape, Never!

Nolte: Vatican ‘No Comment’ About Hundreds of Predator Priests Abusing 1,000 Children

The Vatican had “no comment” when asked about hundreds of Pennsylvania priests sexually abusing a thousand children.

Where is Pope Francis?

Where is the moral leader of the Catholic Church?

Where is the compassionate, accessible Wheelchair Pope, the Energizer Bunny Pope, the Cynicism-Busting Pope who has always been so eager to comment on every hot button issue, from Global Warming to immigration to homosexuality?

I know where Francis is not. He is not where he should be, in Pennsylvania overseeing a revolutionary and historic house cleaning of a satanic cancer that infects his Church, a 70-year-old cancer of priests and bishops and cardinals who are guilty of either engaging in an organized cabal to rape little boys and girls, or in covering up those unspeakable crimes.

Worse still, not only is Francis not in Pennsylvania personally disinfecting his Church, all we are hearing from the Vatican, the same Vatican that knew well in advance this utterly damning grand jury report was coming out, is “no comment.”

What we have here is a painfully detailed report using on the record testimony and — my God — the Church’s own secret archives, to lay out a painfully detailed case against hundreds of priests who abused and raped some 1,000 children over 70 years — a highly organized pedophile ring allowed to operate for seven decades.

Moreover, the cover up, the enabling of these child rapists goes all the way to the Vatican itself.

What the Vatican is dealing with here goes beyond even the original child abuse scandal that threatened to swamp the Church some 15 years ago. While the first scandal was its own kind of horror show, we were assured this was behind us, the truth had been fully revealed, the wrongdoers punished, the victims made as whole as possible, the page turned.

Now we are learning this is not even close to the truth, that in just one of our 50 states, the cover up and lies marched on to protect an unspeakable evil.

And where is Francis?

Why isn’t he in Pennsylvania personally thanking this grand jury, personally thanking Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, and calling on the attorney generals in all 50 states to launch similar investigations with the Pope’s personal assurance they will have the full cooperation of the Church?

You want to know what should chill every Catholic to the marrow? If this is happening here in America, a country with a legitimate criminal justice system and free press, what horrors are being unleashed in third world countries? In corrupt countries?

As a conservative Catholic (I joined the Church in 2008 believing the sex scandal had been eradicated), I have gone out of my way not to beat up Francis. Even though I believe he is wrong about a lot of things, something I admire about the Catholic Church is the intellectual diversity within. That debate is healthy. So this is not me exploiting the opportunity to bash our left-wing Pope, a man whose photo sits on my fireplace mantle. Rather, this is a practicing Catholic who joined the Church as a 42-year-old man with an open heart, who is just as angry and disappointed in St. John Paul II and Benedict XVI, and who fears the Church is beyond redemption.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (ChurchMilitant.com) – The long-awaited Pennsylvania grand jury report published Tuesday reveals that Cdl. Donald Wuerl, former bishop of Pittsburgh, not only shuffled around notorious predator priests —  including one involved in a sadomasochistic pederast ring — he even paid one off in exchange for his silence.

The 884-page report, blocked for more than a month after two dozen clerics appealed to prevent its public release, was issued in redacted form Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET, and reveals a vast network of more than 300 predator priests who abused hundreds of male teens, with bishops covering up the abuse. One third of all named priests come from Pittsburgh — a total of 99.

The report shows that Wuerl, as bishop of Pittsburgh from 1988–2006, transferred and reassigned priests he knew to have abused male teens, hiding information from police and even paying one priest off in exchange for his silence on priestly misconduct.

Among the most shocking cases was that of Fr. George Zirwas, found dead in his Havana, Cuba apartment in May 2001, murdered by a gay prostitute.

Fr. George Zirwas

Although the diocese remained tightlipped about Zirwas’ death, refusing to discuss the details, later reports revealed Zirwas had led a “flamboyant” homosexual lifestyle in Havana, living with his younger Cuban boyfriend, even facilitating foreign sex trafficking, hooking up American tourists with male Cuban prostitutes. On at least one occasion another Pittsburgh priest had visited Zirwas in Havana.

The Pittsburgh diocese had received complaints about Zirwas as early as 1987, just one year before Wuerl came to Pittsburgh. It received two more complaints in November 1988, after Wuerl had already been installed, with claims involving the fondling of a 16-year-old boy’s genitals, and another involving sexual misconduct with a 17-year-old male.

In spite of the complaints, Wuerl only sent Zirwas away for treatment, placing him back in active ministry on his return, where he was shuffled from parish to parish for another decade.

In 1991, Wuerl received yet another complaint about Zirwas from a male claiming the priest had groped him, yet Wuerl left Zirwas to continue in active ministry, only placing him on a permanent leave of absence in 1995. Zirwas moved down to Florida, where he continued to be supported financially by the diocese.

From there, he demanded that his monthly stipend be increased in exchange for keeping quiet about other priestly sexual misconduct. Incredibly, Wuerl agreed.

Wuerl’s Pay-Out in Exchange for Silence

The grand jury report found that in 1996, Zirwas informed the diocese “he had knowledge of other Pittsburgh Diocese priests’ involvement in illegal sexual activity.”

“In exchange for this information, he demanded that his sustenance payments be increased,” the report notes.

Wuerl told him that if he wanted to receive the payout, he would have to write a statement either naming the priests involved, or otherwise falsely stating that he had “no knowledge” of their misconduct.

“After Zirwas disavowed any knowledge of priest involvement in illegal sexual activity in a letter to the Diocese,” the grand jury report states, “he was granted an additional financial stipend and his sustenance payments were continued.”

Priest Pederast Ring

Zirwas had been connected to a priest pederast ring that involved drugs, alcohol and sadomasochistic acts involving whips and chains used on two teen altar boys, this taking place partly under Wuerl’s tenure.

The grand jury report states:

During the course of this investigation, the Grand Jury uncovered a ring of predatory priests operating within the Diocese who shared intelligence or information regarding victims as well as exchanging the victims amongst themselves. This ring also manufactured child pornography on Diocesan property, including parishes and rectories. This group included: Zirwas, Francis Pucci, Robert Wolk, and Richard Zula. This group of priests used whips, violence and sadism in raping their victims.

The boys specially chosen for the priests’ abuse were given gifts of gold crosses on chains, which allowed the priests to identify which ones had been groomed for abuse.

One of the victims, “George,” who testified before the grand jury, said Zirwas and his priest friends had asked him to get on the bed and remove his shirt and pants, and eventually his underwear, exposing his genitals. The priests claimed they were doing a study on how Christ would have looked on the cross, and took photos of George, which they kept in a file with other teen pornography.

Not only did the diocese under Wuerl know about this criminal activity, the grand jury found that the diocese had kept this information away from the police and prosecutor during the investigation in 1988 and 1989.

Fr. Ernest Paone

Father Ernest Paone was another priest Wuerl reassigned in spite of knowing of his history of molestation. Paone had been investigated in the 1960s by the district attorney, Robert Masters, who admitted during grand jury testimony in 2017 that he dropped the investigation of Paone out of concerns over Masters’ political career; he had wanted to remain on good terms with the bishop.

In 1967, Paone left Pittsburgh to work in the archdiocese of Los Angeles and later San Diego, where he was on a high school faculty. In 1991, in spite of his record of homosexual abuse, Wuerl granted Paone permission to transfer to the diocese of Reno, Las Vegas.

“On November 20, 1991, Zubik wrote to Paone to confirm that Wuerl had approved his new assignment,” the report notes.

New allegations of abuse were brought to Wuerl in 1994, and Paone was sent to St. Luke’s Institute for a psychiatric evaluation. He was then afterwards allowed to continue in active ministry.

In a confidential letter sent to St. Luke’s, the Diocese acknowledged that Paone had been teaching seventh and eighth grade students in the Diocese of San Diego for 19 years. Further, in another confidential memorandum sent from Zubik to Wuerl, Paone’s various assignments and sexual abuse complaints were again listed in detail. The Grand Jury noted that this process showed no concern for public safety or the victims of child sexual abuse. The handling of these matters was commonplace. In spite of the complaint, Paone continued in active ministry following his brief evaluation at a church-based treatment facility.

Paone was retired from active ministry in 2003, but records show he claimed that Wuerl had allowed him to hear confessions from Confirmation-age teens as late as 2006, during which the priest asked inappropriate questions.

“When questioned about this, Paone told local Diocesan officials that he had received permission from the Diocese,” the grand jury report states. “The Diocese dispatched a letter to Paone to remind him that his faculties had been revoked.”

Fr. Richard Zula

The report also highlights the sexual misconduct of Fr. Richard Zula, part of the priest pederast/child porn ring, who performed sadomasochastic acts on male teens and was eventually convicted and sent to prison under Wuerl’s tenure.

During his sentencing, the diocese paid for a psychiatrist to offer testimony of mitigating factors to reduce Zula’s prison time — testimony that included blaming the underage victim for initiating sexual activity, while promoting the priest for his “honesty and sincerity.”

“The Grand Jury notes that while Diocesan resources were being used in such a fashion,” the report states, “unknowing parishioners were still actively tithing from their income without knowledge that church funds were being used to mitigate a convicted sex offender’s sentence.”

After Zula was sent to prison in 1990, the diocese promised to set aside $500 a month for him, which would be paid out in a lump sum on his release. in 1992, Wuerl directed that his monthly payments be increased to $750, in addition to providing health insurance.

Even after Zula’s release from prison, the diocese continued to receive complaints about his past criminal conduct, including a complaint in 1993 from a victim who claimed the priest had “systematically ask[ed] me to strip, assume a kneeling position, have my hands tied by a closeline type rope and subject me to a beating with various types of whips and leather straps.”

In 2001, another victim stepped forward and said Zula had asked him to remove his clothes so he could beat him with a belt. Around this same time, Wuerl authorized increasing Zula’s monthly stipend to $1,000, at one point even weighing the possibility of paying him a lump sum of $240,000 for his retirement.

Wuerl Defends Himself

In a CBS News interview Tuesday morning, before release of the grand jury report, Wuerl defended his track record in Pittsburgh in the face of calls that he step down.

“Some people have called for your resignation,” said CBS reporter Nikki Battiste. “Do you have any plans to resign?”

“It goes back over 70 years, so I think we have to be realistic and say, this claim goes back over decades and decades,” Wuerl said, evading the question.

Asked directly whether he ever quietly moved priests around, Wuerl cut her off, saying, “That wasn’t our process.”

The grand jury report, as shown above, belies his claim.

Asked whether he was aware of the rumors surrounding homosexual predator Abp. Theodore McCarrick, with a notorious reputation for sexually preying on seminarians, Wuerl answered laughingly, “No, no.”

And in a statement issued the day before the grand jury report was released, Wuerl acknowledged that some might be critical of his track record, but hoped “that a just assessment” of his actions of allegedly protecting minors from abuse would “dispel any notions otherwise made by this report,” adding that “the vast majority of the cases detailed are from the past, even the distant past.”

The result of two years of investigation of six Pennsylvania dioceses, the grand jury report involved interviewing dozens of witnesses and reviewing half a million pages of internal Church documents.

As a result of the grand jury investigation, two priests have been arrested and one removed from ministry. Father John Sweeney of the Greensburg diocese has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a 10-year-old boy, and Fr. David Poulson from Erie has been arrested and charged with felonies for sexually assaulting children. Father James Clark of Greensburg has been removed from ministry for allegations of sex abuse from the 1960s.

At the attorney general’s press conference Tuesday afternoon, Church Militant contributor George Neumayr asked Josh Shapiro whether, in light of the revelations about Wuerl, the Pittsburgh diocese should consider removing his name from the Cdl. Donald Wuerl High School.

Shapiro answered, “That’s a decision for the Church.”

Alex Jones’ Phony, Hypocritical 1st Amendment Self Professed, Self Martyrdom False Flag on Social Media is a Marketing Ruse to Sell a Shitload of Vitamins

No one is more directly responsible for his phony, hypocritical 1st Amendment social media self professed martyrdom by Infowhores than Alex Jones.  Fellow Zionist and  social media vacuous figurehead, Harvard drop out, Mark Zuckerberg,  by “unliking” Jones on Facebook,  is not responsible for Alex Jones’ self martyrdom.  In fact, Mark Zuckerberg’s  pirated Mossad/CIA social media disinformation control platform originally is a cyberspace Mossad/CIA fostered paternal twin of  Jones’ Infowars, Infowars and Jones posing as  a shill covert Mossad/CIA social media disinformation controlled opposition full spectrum dominance foil on Facebook, to put it in Jones’ own Infowar parlance.

In fact, Zuckerberg  at the inception of Facebook did not invent the social media internet net platform concept as he claims, or write the code under girding the social media internet platform concept pirated by Zuckerberg for Facebook.  Jones like Zucherberg,  claims self made man Jones is solely responsible for originating the Alt News American Patriot social media internet concept underlying Infowars, and Infowars social media stellar success (like Face Book until recently)  but without corporate media backing through vitamin sales alone.   Zucherberg in claiming he wrote the Facebook code,  claims he is the originator of the concept of social media platform,  a la  Al Gore and the Internet, and thereby plagiarized and eclipsed the true inventors just as Jones plagiarized and eclipsed Jeff Rense, the originator of the Alt News American Patriot social media internet concept underlying Infowars.

Six days after the site (thefacebook.com) launched, three Harvard seniors, Cameron Winklevoss, Tyler Winklevoss, and Divya Narendra, accused Zuckerberg of intentionally misleading them into believing he would help them build a social network called HarvardConnection.com, while he was instead using their ideas to build a competing product.

 

Alex Jones and Infowars exhibit an uncanny resemblance to Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook as Jones likewise pirated the Alt News American Patriot internet platform aped by Infowhores  as a Mossad/CIA  Is R Hell shill from Jeff Rense’s  Alt News, eclipsing Rense, and of course Jones crediting only Jones, not Jeff Rense for the alt news American Patriot internet platform concept underlying Infowars.

Moreover,  Jones’ Infowars and Zuckerberg’s Facebook are cyberspace paternal twins, sharing the same Alphabet Inc. i.e. CIA/Mossad disinformation controlled opposition DNA social engineering. Face Book and Infowars  show themselves to be CIA/Mossad fostered paternal twins  most importantly by not who you hear, but who you do not  hear criticized by Alex and Mark on Infowars and Face Book – Israel and Zionist Jews.

Mossad asset, fake Jew news Warner Media owned puppet Alex Jones’ for over a decade center staged Infowhores as an “Alt News Patriot” controlled opposition, now faux America First, Trumpista Zionist/anti Catholic shill dedicated Mossad/CIA full spectrum dominance foil, until Jone’s was recently “unliked” by Zuckerberg, or as Jones screams “unpersoned.”  Jones, as is the case on Facebook,  colluded on his own initiative with Mossad/CIA Google owned You Tube to get himself  “unpartnered” ” to ignite a chain reaction self martyrdom.

Twitter was one of the last tech giants to remove Jones from its platform. Apple, Facebook, Pinterest, Spotify and YouTube (which is owned by Google) removed some or all Jones-related content earlier this week for violating their user terms prohibiting hate speech.

 

Since 2007  Alex Jones, on You Tube as on Facebook, has thrived and prospered greatly via serene symbiotic mutual brand building boostering  Infowars and You Tube alike.  Jones built up a channel subscription of over 2.3 million until recently “unpartnered” by You Tube, or as Jone’s screams “unpersoned” by You Tube.

So why did Jones choose to commit 1st Amendment self martyrdom now?  Jones’ self professed phony,  hypocritical 1st Amendment self martyrdom, not being thrown to the lions in Rome, but by being unliked by Facebook and unpartnered by You Tube, is a False Flag.  And as Jones an expert on False Flags will be the first to tell you, all False Flags beg the question, like murder, Cui Bono? To whose good? in Latin.  Jones alone stands to profit from his committing Ist Amendment self martyrdom, not recently stock market deflated Facebook, or cyberspace floundering You Tube.  Jones by his shill Ist Amendment self martrydom false flag profits hand in glove with Jones’ CIA/Mossad handlers whose only real business goal on the internet is to annihilate truth tellers and cultivate liars like Alex Jones as controlled opposition. Jones’ False Flag after a decade of serene symbiotic mutual brand building between Infowars, Facebook, and You Tube  in the immediate wake of Facebook’s stock market deflation  and You Tube’s advertising revenue gutted by content creator censorship demonetization and outraged viewers and content creators  who “just walk away” to “Steam It”  is a last dying gasp and a parting shot False Flag of CIA/Mossad internet social media disinformation control through Google, Facebook, and You Tube in collusion with Jones aimed at truthful internet media pundit and news blogs.

It’s entirely possible that if the newfound site visitors stick around, Jones would end up more profitable than before he was blacklisted

Infowars,  a CIA/Mossad faux America first/ Trumpista Zionist controlled opposition propaganda social media platform will thrive and prosper, while Facebook and You Tube, done and gone, complete failures in their disinformation raison d’etre  are used solely as crash and burn parting False Flag shots by their and Jones’ Mosssad/CIA  handlers in  Alex Jones’ phony, hypocritical  1st Amendment social media self professed martyrdom false flag promotes government license to copy cat quashing of truthful alternative media internet cites post Facebook and You Tube censorship, as Jones quashed Jeff Rense, .

Who is behind this False Flag orchestrating it? Again Cui Bono? Jones by his narcissistic self professed self martyrdom in the spot light of the world wide web is. Why this False Flag at this time after a decade of peaceful, profitable symbiotic existence between Infowars, Facebook, and You Tube all Mossad/CIA shills dedicated to full spectrum disinformation dominance on the world wider web? False Flags serve to distort actual history at critical junctures ending peace co existence to provoke war.  Infowars motto is “There is a war on for your mind.” Alex Jones phony, hypocritical  1st Amendment social media self professed martyrdom False Flag, as a Mossad/CIA shill, declared a cyber war of terror for all alternative media minds as all False Flags invoke terror in the minds of their assumed next targets, sheepled  in mind by Jones’ False Flag Terror, they are the next target for cyber free speech annihilation. The irrational is  – if they did it to an alternative media established giant like Jones (CIA/Mossad proxy)  they can do it to anyone, most especially poor little me next. Jones’  1st Amendment false flag war for your truthful mind instills terror posing as  fear a door is opened, government license given,  fait accompli with Jones’ 1st Amendment self professed on line martyrdom in a corporate fascist social media platform conspiracy to copy cat quash truthful alternative media minds and thereby annihilating internet free speech, this the sole purpose and ultimate goal  of  the  Mossad/CIA business on the world wide web, unless “United We Stand with Alex Jones, Divided from Alex Jones We Fall!”  Terrifed minds “I’m next!” by Jone’s phony 1st Amendment social media self professed martyrdom False Flag  thereby co-opted by fear seeking safety in numbers in anti corporate fascist censorship solidarity under the covert pirate banner of Infowhores is an emerging  internet marketing demographic promoted by Jones to sell a shitload of vitamins.

All False Flags are false. Jones’ False Flag is fake. False Flag terror threats are vain threats. No one continued to die on September 12th. With all false flags the only thing to fear is fear itself. Look around you on the internet, nothing has happened. You Tube and Facebook as internet cites, are proven impotent even in collusion with Jones to annihilate anyone’s free speech on the internet, and only have the power to annihilate the own social media platforms on the internet, not any others. Likewise, you alone have the power to annihilate your free speech on the internet, no one else.  False Flag terror seeks to silence the afraid.

Since the time of Nero, it is morally forbidden for Catholics to selfishly and to purposely seek to crown themselves through their own devices with the nonetheless coveted  “crown of martyrdom.”  St. Paul, a proud Roman Citizen, martyred by Nero, counsels respect and obedience for public authorities by Christians, not defying persecuting authorities in public, taunting, like Alex Jones, “come and take it,” something Jesus Christ, the King of Martyrs  never did.   Alex Jones, on the world wide web, of his own volition, out of his own selfish narcissist self projection in world online spotlight phony, hypocritical sanctimonious self martyrdom, sacrificing his cyber existence for Ist Amendment free speech on the world wide web, defiantly and continuously violated terms of use agreement (i.e. breached a bona fide contract of use) by freely disavowing a ninety day on line appearance ban sanction by You Tube,  violating You Tube’s use agreed upon contract conditions.  As such, Jones is in breach of bona fide contract, not You Tube.

Jones taunted by his always juvenile defiant opposition personality disorder  You Tube Nero,  come and take it! to crown himself  king of  1st Amendment martyrs.  Jones’ in doing so knew implicitly Problem-Reaction-Solution the  typical corporate fascist politically correct full spectrum dominance, exhibiting the fake jew control of all social media, to censor and to demonize all alternative media as fake and as conspiracy theory, as well as racist, sexist, and transphobic  in general  “hate speech” and now Jones claims by his self martyrdom government (means mind control) now has a license to quash all truthful internet media cites backed by government censorship of “hate speech” as pioneered and codified by Jones own self professed self 1st Amendment martyrdom.

Do not be fooled,  like the Ayatollah Khomeini  in 1979 installed by MI-6, CIA, Mossad in Iran to supplant the “Iran First” minded Shaw, Iran to be lost to the Western exploitation regardless,  leading to the geo-political isolation of Iran today so as to prevent Iran First under either the Ayatollah or Shaw from dominating “The Middle East” in stead of pip squeak Greater Israel, Jones’, like Khomeini,  is operating undercover in his freely chosen self martyrdom as a  Mossad/CIA Zionist shill, a guiding light through the internet Social Media post Facebook and You Tube cyberspace waste land, leading even those who correctly see Jones as a CIA/Mossad gate keeper and shill,  to the post Face Book and You Tub era, to  a new covertly Mossad/CIA infiltrated internet media platform with Alex Jones once again and nevertheless at its narcissistic all others eclipsing center.

As Lenin said, “If you want to defeat the opposition, become the opposition.”  Alex Jones in his internet self martyrdom,  as a Zionist Mossad/CIA shill has become the opposition by leading it, all the while aping and defaming truthful alternative media blogs on line just as Jones did originally pirating Jeff Rense’ Alt News to start Infowars.  Jones’ raised self martyrdom false flag has scene almost universal salutes from alternative media cites of every ilk in alleged support of First Amendment Free Speech, all Jones opposition and cite comment critics, the Left and the Right, and the Beyond, in full spectrum dominance, in a marketing ruse to sell a shit loads of vitamins through the Infowar Store. “Fight the Bullies! Save the Internet! Save Infowars! Save Super Special! Shop Now!” Infowars Store poster boy Alex Jones  looking so sad with a large “Censored” piece of tap across his incessant big mouth silently shilling  as a Infowars store shill “Shop Now!”

While truthful alternative media support for Alex Jones 1st Amendment self martyrdom false flag allegedly against fake jew news corporate state fascist social media censorship seems at this point universal even among those who detest Alex Jones as a Mossad/CIA Zionist shill and full spectrum dominance faux alternative media controlled opposition foil he is, true to narcissistic form, Alex’s self crowning as king of 1st Amendment martyrs false flag, as a Mossad/CIA disinformation shill, draws all attention of all media, corporate and alternative away from Is R Hell and fake Jews, eclipsing any mention of  near daily, typical  Is R Hell racist, genocidal massacres by the teenager dominated IDF against Palestinians imprisoned in Gaza, the largest open air Ash Can Nazi death camp prison, who are threatened daily with murderous and life long disabling live fire (IDF targets children and teenagers in their reproductive organs), just as any inmate in a prison is, if they dare to approach the barb wire of their unjust imprisonment.  More over, the Alex Jones’ self  1st Amendment martyrdom false flag show extravaganza eclipses on the internet, ( and of course not shown on cable news from Fox to CNN) the return of almost 700,000 Syrian refugee’s to Syria under President Assad and Pres. Vladimir Putin, trumpeting the annihilation of Mossad/CIA/Saudi Is R Hell greater Is R Hell proxy army, ISIS, and the imminent end of Saudi Arabia, Is R Hell’s only ally in the Arab World along with the United Slaves of Is R Hell.

The Saudi King by rule of petro billions is no longer the leader of the Islamic World.  Just as the U.S. President beginning with Obama and solidified by Trump is no longer viewed as the Leader of The Free World  by the World. Vladimir Putin can make claim he is the leader of the post Jew World Order free world and of the post Riyad Islamic world because Putin is moral as a statesman and is diametrically opposed to the Zionist Jew World Order, beginning with Jewish Mafia corruption in Russia and the kicking out of Jewish Bolsheviks of the Soviet Union from Russia  began by Stalin and ended by Putin paying off Russia’s debt to the Rothschilds and forming Brics.  Putin serves to resurrect an originally Catholic Russia, as prophesied by Mary, The Queen of Heaven, Our Lady of Fatima,  and has destroyed with Trump the Jew New World Order, which like Saudi and Is R Hell, Facebook and You Tube, and Alex Jones destroy themselves by being evil and promoting a world based on lying. You can only be destroyed, destroy yourself if you freely participate in evil or do not stand up to evil out of fee and self interest.  Vladimir Putin is by merit and by morality the de facto  leader of not only the post Greater Israel New World Order, post Rothschild  bankster free world, and a strong case can be made of the post Saudi billions Islamic world as well.

Putin in friendship with the honorable Bashar Assad is champion of the Syrians, champion of the Palestinians, who share deep ethnic, religious, and historical ties with Syria, and as apostolic Christians,  with post Soviet Union (Jewish Bolshevik) Russia.  Assad has vowed to take back all occupied Syrian land, this includes the 1967 pirated and 1981 illegally annexed Golan Heights from which Is R Hell pirates forty percent of their fresh water from Syria. Is R Hell’s IDF and the United Slaves of Is R Hell Pentagon are impudent to stop Assad from taking back The Golan Heights as soon as Isis is annihilated.   Alex Jone’s phony, hypocritical  1st Amendment self martyrdom false flag, as a Mossad/US Trump Zionist propaganda shill has managed to eclipse for the moment to sell more vitamins, this monumental emerging reality of world peace based on freedom from terror sponsored by Tel Aviv, Ryad, D.C. from the consciousness of all truthful alternative media blogs with Jones’ Ist Amendment self martyrdom false flag terror shilling CIA/Mossad  loss of 1st amendment freedom of speech a cruel paradox.

First enamored of Alex Jones  when I initially woke up from my brainwashing by life long brain eating zombie corporate media consumption, especially fake jew corporate news, I enthusiastically recommended Alex to my G.W. Bush comrades in arms in the culture war and to my family alike. At first annoyed by growing criticism of my hero Alex Jones as a Zionist gate keeper shill in the Infowar comment section, I  began to understand Alex de facto to be a Mossad/ U.S. Zionist now faux America First Trumpista Is R Hell shill controlled opposition, co-opting and eclipsing the spotlight from truthful alternative media news blogs, having no corporate media backing like Alex enjoyed  from Warner, Alphabet inc. on You Tube, and Facebook all those years.

Today, almost all comments on Alex’s website universally declare Alex’s to be a CIA/Mossad shill, and mock Alex as such as a fraud. The comments are the most truthful renderings on Infowars.  This is another prime reason why Jones crowned himself king of the Ist Amendment martyrs at this time and orchestrated his False Flag.  Alex’s Ist Amendment self martyrdom false flag turns the table on his CIA/Mossad shill critics,  bringing Alex back into control of alternative media  flagship status with renewed integrity and street credibility via false flag hypocritically crowning himself the king of Ist Amendment martyrs.

Although Alex was first to proclaim Francis “Satan,” which to a great extent I agree with Jones,  I realized Alex does this in good Masonic fashion solely to discredit the papacy and annihilate the Catholic Church, not out of any desire to save The Catholic Church faithful from following Francis the Apostate into apostasy.  Alex declares Francis, as Satan, all the more as Pope of Rome.  The truth is Francis is not pope, invalidly elective by the Mason occupied Vatican conclave. Francis is  a P-2 protege of Lucio Gelli, and Black Pope Jesuit Illuminati proxy to discredit the papacy and leave the Church without a true shepherd and into apostasy. Francis is apostate, as such is not and can not be pope, or even considered an anti pope. Alex in has masonic anti Catholic animus to destroy The Catholic Church believes Francis, “Satan” is Pope all the more, and thereby Jones reveals himself as anti Catholic and a masonic sympathizer in the annihilation of the Catholic Church.

All false flags by nature are duplicitous and hypocritical.  Jones’ Francis is Satin is Pope exemplifies Jones’ CIA/Mossad shill duplicity, as his  phony self martyrdom in crowning himself king of the 1st Amendment martyrs wants to appear to have the good and preservation of  We the People at heart in regard to 1st Amendment freedom.  Jones the first to sound the alarm Pope Francis as Pope, is Satan, wants to  appear to have the Catholic Church faithful at heart in declaring  Francis as Satan and Pope as false shepherd, not because he is anti Catholic.  Jones’ false flag attacks 1st Amendment Freedom in instills chilling terror of reprisal in the minds of We the People to exercise free speech on the internet social media cites.  Jones proclamation Francis as Satan is all the more Pope of Rome  apostasy from The Catholic Church.  Alex Jones is a duplicitous two faced liar as an anti Catholic CIA/Mossad shill all to sell a shit load of vitamins.

I am deeply honored and eternally grateful to the grace of God’s Providence in my life that has brought me, through no narcissistic rage of my own, at this point in my Catholic priesthood and Dominican religious life to be awarded the crown of a martyr by  the self crowned king of Ist Amendment martyrs Alex Jones via Infowars.   In the exact same manner Jones was eternally damned and banned by Face Book and You Tube for espousing “Hate Speech,”  i.e.  according to Jones, for Jone’s allegedly exercising his 1st Amendment Right to Free Speech,  I won the crown of Ist Amendment martyrdom from the self crown king of 1st Amendment martyrs Alex Jones via Infowhores  as a life time ban never to post another comment section criticism of Alex Jones as a Zionist Mossad/CIA shill and masonic sympathizer anti Catholic, viewed as Hate Speech by Jones against Jones. In my defense, I do not hate Jones, I hateJones’ Infowar total silence as a Zionist/Mossad/CIA shill covertly promoting Palestinian genocide by Is R Hell. All evil needs to triumph is for good people to say nothing . This is the Mossad/CIA social engineering principle behind Alex’s phony, hypocritical Ist Amendment king of martyrs False Flag that in actuality attempts to terrorized good people into saying nothing through fear of government censorship.  In stead of criticizing Is R Hell and Zionist Jews as the source of the utter destruction of The American Republic, the debt slavery of twenty three trillion dollars deficit, Free Trade deficit and loss of manufacturing to China, Trump’s drained swamp cabinet Goldman Sachs responsible for orchestrating the 2008 sub prime mortgage collapse, the fake Hebrew Federal Reserve/NYC Stock Exchange Military Industrial Complex  just awarded 700 billion dollars for obsolete weapon systems unchanged since 1979, while Russia, China, and Iran announce a new era of weapons innovation far surpassing the U.S. military and Nato in all areas for one hundred billion between them.  The U.S. Military and Nato could not possibly under any scenario possibly win a war against Russia, China, or Iran or anyone else as Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Libya attest to (Muammar Gaddafi’s son Saif al-Islam Gaddafi plans to run for president in Libya, a family spokesman said Gaddafi hopes to bring ‘stability’ to the African country. 

Nevertheless, Zionist Jew Neo Con’s New Jew Order banksters like the Rothschild Goldman Sachs guide the Untied Slaves of Is R Hell to war with Russia, war with China, war with Iran, war, war, never ending jewish banker war and Jone’s never mentions Israel and Zionist Jews, but instead fills Infowhores with Hate Speech diatribes against hated Muslim migrants to Europe demonizing them and their religion as the cause of the annihilation of  European nations.

Self professed Roman Catholic media free speech martyr Michael Voris martyred me in a similar manner as Jones for criticisms for ever damming and banning me from the comment section on Church Militant.Com.  Jones banned me because I said Jones is a masonic sympathizing anti Catholic shill in Jone’s hate speech for warning the faithful Voris is a hypocritical lying self loathing practicing homosexual on a hypocritical social media pundit fake news duplicitous Opus Dei jihad against the institution of  Church Bishops and Cardinals for being practicing homosexuals and covering up for homosexual clerics,  while Voris on Churchmilitant says nothing about Francis covering up for Francis the Apostate saying nothing about homosexual Bishops and Religious (former Dominican Master General Timothy Radcliff claiming homosex is eucharistic)  advising him at the Vatican, and most importantly that Francis, AKA Satan according to Jones, is not Pope because Francis is an apostate.  All the while Voris canonizes Cardinal Burke incessantly, a primal corporate sponsor of Churchmilitant. com, and like Voris duplicitous pious practicing homosexual with a history of clerical child rape cover up as a bishop just like Dolan, Wuerl, and Dinardo that Voris demands resign and who like Voris, Burke will not say Francis is not Pope, can not be Pope because for is Apostate.  Like Jones Pope Satan, Voris and Burke’s Pope Apostate.

Jones hypocritically claims he has never banned anyone from posting on Infowars  comments alleging Jones  is a Mossad/CIA Israel shill even though Jones is angered and frustrated by the baseless animus of such personal attacks he claims. To the contrary,  exactly as Jone’s loudly professes in his social media self professed self martyrdom false flag  opening the door to copy cat quashing of truthful alternative media internet cites co-opted under the banner of Infowhores in anti corporate fascist censorship solidarity as a marketing ruse by Jones to sell a shitload of vitamins, Jones’ 1st Amendment right to free speech was arbitrarily taken away on Facebook and You Tube being banned for “hate speech” forever from the platform, hypocritically Jones in violation of my 1st Amendment rights to freedom of speech and freedom of religion, by a corporately owned fake Jew news alternative media outlet, not You Tube or Face Book, but  Infowhores,  just as Jones claimed You Tube and Face Book did to him, Jones hypocritically did to me by lifetime banning me from publishing truthful critical comments on Jones on Infowhores, and denied me, just like Facebook and You Tube allegedly denied Jones,  exercise of my First Amendment Rights as a corporately owned social media platform like Facebook and You Tube. Jones by banning me for life from free speech exercise on Infowhores not only attempted (and failed) to quash my internet free speech, but exercise of Freedom of Religion in the public square handing me the crown of martyrdom being “unpersoned” guarding as a Catholic priest and Dominican religious the Church faithful from Anti Catholic masonic disinformation spewing from the tapped “censored” mouth of  phony, hypocritical  self martyrdom Ist Amendment false flag supplement salesman con man and liar, Alex Jones, aka Mossad/CIA Is R Hell shill and masonic anti-Catholic.

The “Uncle Teddy” McCarrick case Four generations of clerical sexual predators when is enough, enough?

Note, Randy Engel and all Church Documents she cites, never, ever uses the term Pedophile, but properly and always Pederast to describe homosexual clerical child rapist in The Church.  A Pedophile molests his or her own biological children, Pederasts the biological children of others. Fr. Maciel Degolado is a prime example of a clerical child rapist who is both of Pederast and a Pedophile, a fortunately rare combination among homosexual Pederasts in the Church. Do not use the term Pedophile to describe homosexual clerical Pederasts in the Church.

Introduction

It’s been an “open secret,” for almost 100 years, that the American hierarchy has been plagued by homosexual/pederast predators within its ranks.

That’s the bad news.

The good news is that the current debacle over the revelations of homosexual tricks turned over by Cardinal “call-me-Uncle Teddy” McCarrick has provided an albeit totally unexpected but welcome opportunity for the handful of decent prelates who still have their religious and moral miters on straight to demonstrate to the long-suffering Catholic laity that they are both willing and able to take the lead in lancing and draining the infectious carbuncles of perversity and immorality that threatens the entire Body and Soul of the Catholic Church, not only in our nation, but around the world.

I think that the Catholic faithful sense that there is much more to the McCarrick case than has yet been revealed by either the Catholic or secular press. And they are correct .

What is the McCarrick Case About?

Clearly, this is not just a story of one isolated prelate’s fall from grace.

It’s the story of an institutionalized and systemic crisis which the Holy See has permitted to fester in the very bosom of Holy Mother Church since the early part of the 20th century.

The McCarrick case is about four generations of homosexual/pederast Catholic bishops and cardinals in AmChurch – McCarrick being part of the third generation, and the homosexual bishops he has consecrated, the fourth generation.

Historically speaking, McCarrick got in on the near ground floor of one of largest and most influential homosexual networks in the Church in modern times – the Cardinal Francis Spellman Network.

There’s an old saying that “the Devil is in the detail. This certainly true of the McCarrick case, both literally and figuratively.

Let’s review a short but not so sweet summary of McCarrick’s meteoritic rise up the clerical ladder which the Catholic and secular news services have, thus far, failed to report.

I have attached a postscript to this article for readers who wish additional information on the Cardinal McCarrick’s background.

The McCarrick Case in Four Sound Bites

  • Father McCarrick was ordained by the “Kingmaker,” Cardinal Francis Spellman, Archbishop of New York from 1939 to 1967. “Franny” Spellman, a predatory homosexual prelate, ordained and/or consecrated many young priests who joined the sodomite ranks including McCarrick, George Guilfoyle, Christopher Weldon, Francis Reh and Terence Cooke.
  • Monsignor McCarrick served as personal secretary from 1971 to 1977 to homosexual Cardinal Terence Cooke. It was Cooke who consecrated McCarrick an auxiliary bishop. Among the other homosexual bishops consecrated by “Cookie” were Bishop Emerson John Moore, a homosexual drug addict who died alone and destitute of AIDS in September 1995. For the record, Cooke oversaw the suffragan Diocese of Brooklyn where homosexual Bishop Francis Mugavero permitted the St. Matthew Community – a religious community made up of homosexual priests for homosexual priests and their partners – to operate out of his diocese in 1978.
  • Cardinal McCarrick, from his earliest days in the priesthood (1958); to his appointment as an auxiliary bishop (1977); to his installation as Bishop of Metuchen (1981); to his appointment as Archbishop of Newark (1986); to his appointment as Archbishop of Washington. D.C. (2000); and his elevation to the cardinalate (2001), was an active homosexual/pederast preying especially on young seminarians and newly-ordained priests.
  • Cardinal McCarrick has continued the inter-generational production of sodomites in the American hierarchy by the consecration of at least three priests – one of whom is deceased and two who are currently bishops in good standing.

The Overworld that Protects the Clerical Underworld

As one reads the many press accounts and internet commentaries on the McCarrick case, it seems rather strange that there is any mystery whatsoever surrounding the cardinal’s very real Teflon coating that has protected him from exposure and incarceration for decades.

Why is this?

Perhaps it is necessary to remind oneself that the homosexual underworld, be it clerical or secular, is a world of vice. A world that includes drugs, prostitution, domestic violence, murder, suicide, blackmail, and criminality of all kinds.

As an active homosexual prelate, Cardinal McCarrick has been open to blackmail in various forms by the enemies of the Church for half-a-century.

But blackmail is a two-edged sword and in McCarrick’s case it has worked largely in his favor since the 88-year-old cardinal knows all the details of just about every active homosexual American bishop in the United States (and many at the Vatican) dating back to the Spellman era.

That’s an awful lot of skeletons hiding in the proverbial clerical “gay” closet.

There is no question that there exists today a vast overworld in the Catholic Church, starting at the Vatican, with arms that reach into every diocese in the world. The main function of this overworld is to coverup the scandal-ridden underworld of the homosexual/pederast networks in the Church. The great tragedy is that both the overworld and the underworld are fueled by the long-suffering Catholic laity with the money they toss into the collection basket every week.

You wanted to know how it is possible for McCarrick to have escaped exposure and censure for so long? That’s your answer, like it or not.

Who’s Giving McCarrick Legal Advice? Whose Picking Up the Tab?

One of the little recognized practices of American diocesan lawyers, and lawyers from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops when faced with the prospect of a public “outing” of a homosexual/pederast bishop or cardinal, has been to promise the prelate the best defense that money can buy and continued financial support in exchange for his silence on his fellow homosexual/pederast bishops, cardinals, and clerics at home and abroad.

How else can one explain McCarrick’s totally asinine statement that he “has no recollection,” concerning the sexual abuse of the young altar boy at St. Patrick’s Cathedral that has made recent headlines?

No recollection? Nonsense!

Sexual perverts, especially pederasts, have amazing memories especially as they relate to their early conquests. They relive those experiences over and over in their minds, day in and day out.

It’s their way of getting kicks. Pederasts especially savor the look on the face of their victim when the young boy realizes what is being done to him. Now the victim is one of THEM!

Who devised this brilliant strategy for McCarrick?

My guess is that the New York Archdiocese clued McCarrick in the first moment that the now middle-aged victim fingered McCarrick as his abuser, and the cardinal’s attorneys plotted accordingly. Since the victim’s story turned out to be “credible,” McCarrick’s legal counsel no doubt decided that his best bet was not to deny the abuse outright, but claim he had “no recollection” of the alleged crime.

After all, the statute of limitations has run out in New York State, so he’s not going to jail any time soon.

And the chances of the “gay friendly” occupant of the Chair of Peter giving McCarrick a choice between defrocking and a life of permanent penance at a traditional monastery constantly surrounded by two monks, one on either side, to monitor the cardinal’s every move lest he attempt to seduce other clerics, is very slim indeed.

Probably, given the short and faulty memory of American Catholics when it comes to the horrific pain and anguish of victims (and their families) of pederasty and homosexual abuse, chances are McCarrick will disappear for a few months from the public limelight and then retired quietly in high style knowing he’ll be protected and kept financially solvent by Church officials in return for his keeping silent to the grave.

Unfortunately for McCarrick, however, there is a Life and Judgement beyond the grave, although his actions demonstrate that he believes in neither. Perhaps one, just one, of his fellow clerics including all those who have feigned “shock” at the recent revelations, will love Cardinal McCarrick enough to remind him of this reality before it is too late.

I pray they do.

But in the meantime, my rosaries and prayers are for the victims of clerical sexual abuse – past, present and future. And future victims there will be along with corresponding devastated families until faithful Catholics get justice and accountability from the hierarchy and the Holy See or God intervenes directly – whichever comes first.

– The End –

Postscript:

When I started my research on the homosexual network in AmChurch in 1989 for The Rite of Sodomy – Homosexuality and the Roman Catholic Church, I began with a short list of homosexual prelates I needed to investigate – Cardinal William O’Connell of Boston, Cardinal Francis Spellman of New York, Cardinal John Wright, Prefect of the Congregation for the Clergy, Bishop Donald Wuerl of Pittsburgh, Cardinal Joseph Bernardin of Chicago, Archbishop Rembert Weakand, O.S.B. of Milwaukee, and Archbishop Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Newark.

By the time The Rite of Sodomy was published in 2006, that list had grown to more than 40 American homosexual prelates and superiors of male religious orders.

Below are a few excerpts on Cardinal McCarrick taken from taken from the updated five- volume set of The Rite of Sodomy. Footnotes are provided in the original text:

American Hierarchy Denies Existence of

A Clerical Homosexual Network

On April 23-24, 2002, Pope John Paul II called an Extraordinary Meeting of American Cardinals in Rome to discuss the clerical sexual abuse problem in the United States. Bishop Wilton Gregory, President of the USCCB, was also in attendance.

A press conference at the Vatican Press Office was held on the evening of the close of the two-day session with the Holy Father. In attendance were Cardinals Theodore McCarrick and James Francis Stafford, Bishop Gregory representing the USCCB, and Vatican lay press officer, Dr. Joaquin Navarro-Valls.

During the news conference, Cardinal McCarrick, Archbishop of Washington, D.C. was asked by Christopher Ferrara, who along with John Vennari was covering the story for Catholic Family News, the following question pertaining to the problem of pederasty and homosexuality in the Catholic priesthood:

Nearly every single case has involved an adolescent and does not constitute a true case of pedophilia. So, we’re dealing with the acts of homosexual males who could not control their predilection. To avoid what would be a perpetual bumper crop of this type of scandal, is the hierarchy in North America going to enforce the Vatican’s [1961] Instruction that homosexual males simply should not be ordained?

Cardinal McCarrick responded:

I think certainly every seminary in the country has a program that says, “anyone who is an active homosexual should never be admitted.” I don’t know of any bishop in the country who would allow someone who had been actively involved in homosexuality to enter a seminary. I don’t think any bishop would allow anyone who was actively engaged in heterosexual activity right before they went in to enter the seminary. We believe in celibacy. It’s not the easiest road in today’s crazy world, but we believe in celibacy. We believe that if you practice celibacy with all your heart, with all your love, you can be free to serve God’s people, to serve God in a beautiful way. If someone gets into a seminary, and that question is not asked, that’s a terrible thing. But any seminary that I know, you say, “have you been acting celibately up until now?”

[Note: The 1961 Instruction, Religiosorum institutio on the “Careful Selection And Training Of Candidates For The States Of Perfection And Sacred Orders” was the work of the Sacred Congregation for Religious in the Holy Office. It provided that “Advancement to religious vows and ordination should be barred to those who are afflicted with evil tendencies to homosexuality or pederasty, since for them the common life and priestly ministry would constitute serious dangers.” This was the paragraph of the 1961 Instruction that Mr. Ferrara was referring to in his questioning of Cardinal McCarrick at the April 2002 Rome press conference.]

A Reality Check for Cardinal McCarrick

Finally, let us return to Cardinal McCarrick and his performance at the April 2002 Vatican press conference.

Young Ted, an only child, lost his father at the age of three. He was raised by his doting mother, who worked as an artist model and later in an auto-parts factory.

In his junior year, he was expelled from Xavier High School in Manhattan, ostensibly for truancy, but, thanks to family connections, he was taken in by Fordham Prep, another Jesuit high school in the Bronx.

Cardinal Spellman ordained Father McCarrick on May 31, 1951. He served as secretary to Cardinal Cooke from 1971 to 1977, when Cooke made him an Auxiliary Bishop of New York.

New York insiders glibly refer to McCarrick by his feminine name “Blanche” and Vatican officials have long been aware of his penchant for young handsome seminarians. McCarrick has ordained at least three homosexual bishops.

Yet, here is a man who the Holy See permitted to play the fool before an international audience of reporters on the question of the ordination of homosexual candidates to the priesthood and the existence of a homosexual network within the Church.

How far has the rot gone? All the way to the top.

Epilogue

Eighteen months have gone by since the manuscript of The Rite of Sodomy passed from my hands to the printers, and many important changes have occurred in the life of the Church, not the least of which is the election of a new pope. Pope John Paul II died on April 2, 2005. The former Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, has ascended the throne of Saint Peter as Pope Benedict XVI.

There have also been other important events connected with many personages featured in this book. …

On January 10, 2006, attorney John A. Aretakis filed an amended civil suit on behalf of Father Robert Hoatson in the United States District Court of New York. Fr. Hoatson, a priest of the Newark Archdiocese is suing Archbishop John Myers of Newark, Cardinal Edward Egan of New York, Bishop Howard Hubbard of Albany, the Christian Brothers and others for aiding and abetting known criminal clerical pederasts. Hoatson, an alleged victim of sexual abuse by the Christian Brothers, identified Myers, Egan and Hubbard as “active homosexuals.” Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, although not a defendant in the suit, is also identified as an “active homosexual.” In addition, Hoatson claims that Bishop Charles J. McDonnell, Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus of Newark, and Bishop Paul Bootkowski of Metuchen, N.J. had an “inappropriate relationship” with sexual abuser Father Alfonso de Condorpusa of the Newark Archdiocese. Both McDonnell and Bootkowski were consecrated by Cardinal McCarrick. A jury trial is demanded.

Israel Preps for Syrian War With Golan’s Oil and Water in Its Sights

By Whitney Webb

Soon after Saturday’s dangerous escalation—involving Syria’s downing of an Israeli fighter

jet in its airspace—seemed to fizzle out, the Jerusalem Post reported that Israel was approaching the de-escalation period as a time to prepare for large-scale war with its northern neighbor by boosting its air defenses. According to those cited by the Post, convoys of missile-defense batteries have been relocated to the Israeli-Arab city of Baka al-Gharbiya and numerous other batteries have been sighted on highways throughout northern Israel.


While the deployment of air defenses to the country’s north seems to forebode an imminent conflict, some experts, like Ofer Zalzberg of the International Crisis Group think tank, have asserted that the recent escalation between Syria and Israel will remain

contained, despite Israel’s apparent preparations for a large-scale conflict.

“I think this incident is more likely to be contained because fundamentally it is a gradual attempt to renegotiate the so-called rules of the game,” Zalzberg told AFP, further suggesting that Russia should mediate in order to prevent the weekend’s events from sparking a regional war. Russia, for its part, seemed eager to halt the hostilities, as it urged the need to “avoid any measure that could lead to a dangerous escalation.”

Indeed, any escalation that would lead to a state of open conflict between Syria and Israel would surely spread, quickly involving Syrian allies including Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah and, potentially, more powerful nations like the U.S. and Russia.

Even if recent events fail to translate into a war between Israel and its northern neighbors, any attempts to prevent such a war—no matter how “successful” they may seem—will only be temporary at best. Israel, even prior to its establishment as a state in 1948, has been ever eager to annex southern Syria in order to gain access to key resources—first, fresh water and now, oil. It is this same desire that continues to motivate Israel’s aggression against its neig

neighbors.

As Syria will not relinquish what is theirs as long as their sovereignty remains intact, Israel has sought to take such prizes through a variety of tactics ranging from illegal occupation to fomenting covert regime-change efforts. As those efforts have continued to fail, Israel has grown more and more desperate to lay claim to those resources that lie just beyond its reach. Unless Israel relinquishes its desire for its neighbor’s resources, the next war is inevitable.

The Golan: Israeli Goal in Pushing Syria to War

The Golan: Israeli Goal in Pushing Syria to War

Though casual observers of the Syrian conflict may find the weekend’s events as having come out of nowhere, those who have closely followed the conflict and appreciate the context will note that Israel seems to have finally gotten the war with Syria it has long sought.

However, Israel is not hungry for war in and of itself. Instead, it is eager to cement its claim to the Golan Heights, a plateau bordering Israel, Lebanon and Syria. In order to accomplish that, regime change in Syria is essential, as the international community still refuses to recognize Israel’s seizure and continued occupation of the Golan as legal. This bars Israel from commercially developing the area’s rich resources, which are key to understanding Israel’s willingness to go to war over a seemingly small and insignificant tract of land. However, a new Syrian government, one more “friendly” to Israeli interests, could officially relinquish Syria’s claim to the Golan, paving the way for the complete and official annexation of the territory by Israel.

Though measuring no more than roughly 460 square miles, the Golan is of great strategic importance for several reasons. The most commonly cited by Israeli media is that it offers a bulwark against northern “hostile” nations due to its rugged geography, helping Israel to “defend” against incoming attacks from either Syria or Lebanon.

However, much more important to Israel’s “national security” than the oft-stated “barrier” advantage is the fact that the Golan Heights houses significant fresh-water resources. Under occupation, the Golan is one of three sources of fresh water to the Israeli state—and is the largest in size and most plentiful, as it comprises the mountain streams that feed Lake Kinneret (the Sea of Galilee) and the headwaters of the Jordan river. Currently, more than a third of all the fresh water made available to Israelis originates in the Golan Heights.

Though fresh water is an especially important resource in the Middle East, it is now more important to Israel than ever before. Israel is in its fourth year of a drought so massive that a NASA study called it the worst drought in the region in nearly 900 years. As a result, the water in the Golan Heights is essential to Israel and its attempts to expand.

This resource was a major motivating factor in Israel’s 1967 takeover and subsequent 1981 annexation of the Golan Heights. During that period, Israel expelled nearly all of the area’s original inhabitants and demolished their villages. As Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported in 2010, more than 100,000 Syrians lost their homes and property as a result of the occupation. Israel has no intention of letting the Golan’s original inhabitants return, however. The area is currently home to some 20,000 settlers and a plan is currently underway to settle 100,000 more in the next several years in order to strengthen Israel’s claim to the area.

Though the abundant fresh water in the Golan Heights is of crucial importance to Israel, the Golan’s value grew sharply following the discovery of a major oil reserve in the area, estimated to contain “billions of barrels” of crude oil that could turn Israel—which currently imports the vast majority of its fuel—into a net oil exporter. Yet, because the Golan Heights are internationally recognized as being under occupation and not an official part of Israel, the commercial extraction and export of this vast oil reserve cannot go forward—until this status changes. As a result, only exploratory wells have been drilled, mostly by a division of Genie Energy Co., a U.S.-based oil company connected to well-known figures such as Rupert Murdoch, Jacob Rothschild and Dick Cheney.

The desire to claim the Golan Heights and all of its resources under internationally recognized circumstances is also, in part, to blame for Israel’s key role in the genesis of the current violence in Syria.

Five years before the current conflict in Syria began, the government of Israel hatched a plan to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad by creating sectarian strife in the country and isolating Syria from its strongest regional ally, Iran. As mentioned, the Assad-led government has refused to recognize Israel’s hold on the Golan and has vowed to retake it as part of Syria.

The plan was never designed to be enacted by Israel but instead by its “staunch ally” the United States. The U.S. adopted the plan and the communications of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton revealed that this plan was a major factor in U.S. policy leading up to the genesis of the Syrian conflict. One of her leaked emails, published by WikiLeaks, stated that “the best way to help Israel deal with Iran’s growing nuclear capability is to help the people of Syria overthrow the regime of Bashar Assad.”

That same email also noted that “a successful intervention in Syria would require substantial diplomatic and military leadership from the United States.” It also added that “arming the Syrian rebels and using Western air power to ground Syrian helicopters and airplanes is a low-cost high-payoff approach.”

Unsurprisingly, official recognition of Israel’s annexation of the Golan was prominent among the regime-change promises touted by the Syrian “rebels.” Throughout the now seven-year-long war, rebels have offered to “trade” or sell the Golan to Israel in exchange for military aid or an Israeli-imposed “no-fly zone” in their bid to overthrow Assad.

Despite Israel and U.S.’ best efforts, the “low-cost high-payoff approach” has not gone as planned. Instead, Assad has managed to consolidate large parts of Syrian territory once lost to the “rebels,” the bulk of which are

regime change have failed, Israel has grown more desperate, as evidenced by everything from the “dozens and dozens” of attacks it has launched against Syria to last year’s threats to assassinate Assad by bombing his residence. Experts have long noted that these are attempts to provoke Syria into a conflict.

In addition to these provocations, Israel has been creeping further into southern Syria under the guise of establishing a “safe-zone” or buffer region that extends from the Golan into the southern Syrian provinces of Quneitra and Daraa. According to Syrian opposition sources and Israeli-American NGOs, this safe zone is “intended to keep the Syrian army and its Iranian and Lebanese allies as far away from Israel’s border as possible, as well as solidify Israel’s control over the occupied Golan Heights.”

Alongside the buffer zone’s expansion, Israel has “offered” to occupy Syrian villages to “protect” them from the very Syrian rebels that Israel has been funding, arming, and offering medical treatment to throughout the conflict—even though most are allied with al-Nusra Front (Al Qaeda) or Daesh (ISIS).

While Israel has, for much of the war, been conducting these attacks against, and illegal incursions into, Syria with impunity, all of that has now changed due to this past weekend’s events. Now that Syria is responding to flagrant violations of its sovereignty, Israel knows the match is lit and, by all indications, is preparing for what comes next.

Henry Kissinger: “It’s a war between the Jews and the non-Jews”

The Daily Mail commented: “It appears that the remark was an attempt to characterize the clash between former Trump chief adviser Steve Bannon on one side, and Jewish Trump family members Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump on the other.”

Henry Kissinger is known for using political flamethrowers. He is also known for being involved in covert operations in countries like Germany, Chile, Cambodia, Vietnam, Pakistan, etc. He is unequivocally a war criminal.

“When the Khmer Rouge was carrying out genocide in Cambodia in 1975, killing millions of people, Kissinger declared ‘You should tell the Cambodians that we will be friends with them.’ We are prepared to improve relations with them,” he said, adding ‘They are murderous thugs, but we won’t let that stand in the way.’

“Kissinger also met with representatives from far-right Latin American dictatorships and told them the U.S. would help them ‘to succeed’ in their campaign of systematic state terrorism against left-wing movements, known as Operation Condor.

“When popular Marxist leader Salvador Allende was democratically elected president of Chile in 1970, Kissinger and Nixon ordered the U.S. government to ‘make the economy scream.’”[1]

Over three million civilians were slaughtered in Southeast Asia from 1965 to 1975, and “the Pakistani massacre of Bengalis in 1971” exterminated at least 1.5 million people. Kissinger was an accomplice in all of this.[2] He literally used the C.I.A. to create violent revolution in Chile, which “overthrew Chile’s democratically elected socialist government on Sept. 11, 1973 — the first 9/11 attack, if you will.”[3]

Kissinger also viewed “military men”—and American soldiers in particular—as “dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.”[4]

Once those “dumb, stupid animals” can no longer be of service to people like Kissinger or the Israeli regime, then they just dump them as if they were rotten meat or decomposed bodies. They have already dumped at least 360,000 thousand veterans, who “may have brain injuries.”[5]

In any event, Kissinger seems to think that he is invincible because he has been able to say interesting statements and get away with them. In response to Michael Wolf’s Fire and Fury, Kissinger has recently declared that the ideological war goes very deep. “It’s a war between the Jews and the non-Jews,” he said.[6]

The Daily Mail commented: “It appears that the remark was an attempt to characterize the clash between former Trump chief adviser Steve Bannon on one side, and Jewish Trump family members Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump on the other.”[7]

The simple question is this: why hasn’t Kissinger been called a vicious anti-Semite? Why has he been able to put the political battle in ideological terms but people like us cannot?

The Daily Mail quotes Wolf’s book saying, “For Trump, giving Israel to Kushner was not only a test, it was a Jewish test: the president was singling him out for being Jewish, rewarding him for being Jewish, saddling him with an impossible hurdle for being Jewish – and, too, defaulting to the stereotyping belief in the negotiating powers of Jews.”[8]

Steve Bannon: “I am Thomas Cromwell in the court of the Tudors.”

Once again, Wolf hasn’t been called an anti-Semite for making such a provocative statement. In fact, he is making thousands and perhaps millions of dollars for making sweeping pronouncements.

Granted, there a heated tension and conflict of vision in the White House. But the issue here is not really between “the Jews and the non-Jews.” As we have argued in a previous article, Bannon is a flaming Zionist. In fact, Joel Pollak, an Orthodox Jew and a senior editor for Breitbart News (Bannon’s Zionist flagship), declared in 2016:

“I can say, without hesitation, that Steve is a friend of the Jewish people and a defender of Israel, as well as being a passionate American patriot and a great leader.”[9]

Bannon, like Trump, must have known that being “a defender of Israel” and propounding “America First” are polar opposite. You cannot defend Israel, which is foreign entity, and then pursue “America First” anywhere in this universe. It is logically impossible. Bannon was trying to get the best of both worlds, and what he ended up having was moral and political chaos.

Bannon was also attempting to use his Zionist magic to make “America First” work. So far, he has failed miserably because you cannot serve Zionism and “America First.” One is the anti-thesis of the other. If one rises, then the other has to fall. It’s just that simple.

Bannon did everything he could to make Benjamin Netanyahu and the Israeli regime great again, and in that sense he inexorably helped evaporate “America First” from the White House. One must also keep in mind that Bannon used to work for Goldman Sachs, the very company that helped crash the economy in 2008.

The solution? Purge any Israeli infiltrator from the White House. Americans need to start looking for a serious candidate who will unashamedly and publicly renounce his allegiance to Israeli manipulation and covert operation.

Paul VI and the Church’s Paradigm Shift on Homosexuality

Pope John XXIII – The Interim Pope

 Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli, known to the world as Pope John XXIII, served as the critical interim link between the pontificates of the two great framers and implementers of the Revolution in the Catholic Church – Pope Pius XII (Eugenio Pacelli) and Pope Paul VI (Giovanni Battista Montini). Roncalli’s powerful Roman patronage from the Rampolla crowd, his “progressivist” leanings and his advanced age were sufficient to qualify him as an apprentice pope, but not a leader of the Revolution.

A Lombard, like Battista Montini, Roncalli was born on November 25, 1881 in Sotto il Monte, Italy, in the Diocese of Bergamo. He was the fourth child in a family of 14. The extended Roncalli family headed by his great-uncle Zaverio were poor – sharecroppers with a heavy dependency on the goodwill of their landlord. Life was difficult.[1]

Roncalli was attracted to the priesthood at a very early age. In his memoirs, he said that he never knew a time when he did not want to be a priest. He began as a day student at the tender age of nine at the episcopal college at Celana, but after a trying year he returned home where he was tutored by his parish priest, Don Francesco Rebuzzini.[2] He entered the junior seminary at Bergamo at age 11 in November 1893.

Thereafter, his training for the priesthood progressed in an ordinary manner until a chance meeting on September 17, 1899 with Msgr. Giacomo Maria Radini-Tedeschi.

Msgr. Radini-Tedeschi, a canon at St. Peter’s in Rome with important Curial connections, would later become Roncalli’s lifelong patron and protector. The 42-year-old Radini-Tedeschi extended a general invitation to the aspiring cleric to come to Rome to study, but the acceptance was delayed until Roncalli won a scholarship to the Pontifical Seminary in Rome.[3]

From January 1901 to 1905, with a singular interruption of one year to complete compulsory military service, Roncalli remained at the Roman College. Following his ordination as a priest of the Diocese of Bergamo on August 10, 1904, he stayed in Rome to complete his degree in canon law. Once again, Providence intervened.

In 1905, Pope Pius X embarked upon a program to defang Cardinal Rampolla’s Modernist allies. He made Radini-Tedeschi a bishop and kicked him upstairs. Bishop Radini-Tedeschi selected Roncalli to accompany him to the Diocese of Bergamo as his secretary.

As a member of Radini-Tedeschi’s official entourage, Roncalli began to absorb the “progressive” spirit of his wealthy and influential patron and mentor. Other members of the exclusive circle included Cardinal Rampolla and his secretary Eugenio Pacelli (the future Pius XII), Giacomo della Chiesa (the future Benedict XV) who worked at the Vatican’s Department of State, and Cardinal Andrea Carlo Ferrari, Archbishop of Milan.

In addition to his diocesan duties, in 1906, Roncalli accepted a position at the diocesan seminary where he taught history and apologetics. Rumors that Roncalli’s lectures contained seeds of Modernism were of little concern to him. He continued to be well protected until the death of Radini-Tedeschi in 1914. With the installation of a new Ordinary, Bishop Luigi Maria Marelli, who had a reputation for orthodoxy and little patience for novelty, theological or otherwise, Roncalli’s chances for ecclesiastical advancement looked bleak.

In May 1915, Roncalli was called out for active duty as an army chaplain to serve in the Great War. Upon his return from the horrific and sobering experience of trench warfare, his superior, Bishop Marelli, appointed him Director of the House of Studies at Bergamo and later spiritual director of the diocesan seminary. He was also assigned as chaplain to the Union of Catholic Women (UCW). According to Mary Martínez, it was in connection with the UCW’s factory workers strike that Roncalli met a kindred spirit in the person of strike organizer and Christian Democrat political activist, Giuditta Montini, the mother of the future Pope Paul VI.[4]

The year 1921 brought a sharp change in fortune for Roncalli. Pius X had forced the Modernists underground, but with Giacomo della Chiesa now sitting on the papal throne as Pope Benedict XV, they emerged as virulent a strain as ever.

Pope Benedict XV summoned Roncalli to Rome and made him Chairman of the Central Council of the Propagation of the Faith in Italy with an office in the Curia.

Unfortunately for Roncalli, one year later, Pope Benedict XV was dead. His successor was Achille Ratti who became Pope Pius XI. For the visionaries of NewChurch his election was another temporary setback.

While working at the Propaganda Fide, Msgr. Roncalli developed important political contacts with Giorgio Montini, editor of Il Cittadino de Brescia and an activist in the anti-Fascist Partita Popolare Italiana (PPI) led by Don Luigi Sturzo. It was about this time, that Roncalli met the elder Montini’s middle son, the up-and-coming diplomat Msgr. Giovanni Battista, who had returned from Poland. The two men struck up a close friendship that lasted a lifetime.[5]

In 1924, Msgr. Roncalli secured a teaching position at the Pontifical Lateran University as Professor of Theology and Ecclesiastical History.

Martínez reports that it was during his tenure at the Lateran that Roncalli began to “spice up” his lectures with the writings of anthroposophist Rudolf Steiner, the ex-adept of the occult sect Ordo Templi Orientis that claimed the late Cardinal Rampolla as a leading light.[6] She states that word of Roncalli’s imprudent remarks reached the ear of Pius XI. This incident would have been the cause of an immediate dismissal from his post at the Pontifical University were it not for the intercession of Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Gasparri who secured for his friend, Roncalli, a bishopric and a diplomatic post in the Balkans to await better times.[7]

On the other hand, Roncalli’s biographer Peter Hebblethwaite suggests that the cleric’s banishment from Rome was triggered by some inopportune pro-PPI, pro-Christian Democratic, anti-Fascist remarks in a sermon delivered at Bergamo Cathedral on September 1, 1924 on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the death of Bishop Radini-Tedeschi.[8]

Msgr. Roncalli served as Apostolic Visitor and then Apostolic Delegate to Bulgaria from March 1925 to January 1935 at which time Pius XI made him Papal Nuncio to Turkey and Greece where the worlds of Greek Orthodoxy and Islam dominated the religious landscape.[9]

During the Second World War, most of Roncalli’s time was taken up with humanitarian concerns especially the plight of the Jews. Pope Pius XII ordered Roncalli to issue false baptismal certificates to Jews in order that they might resettle in Palestine that was under the control of the British. Roncalli balked.

Roncalli informed the pope that it was madness to give into Zionist demands for a Jewish homeland in Palestine that could not be justified on either historical or political grounds. Roncalli was against driving the Arabs, including a significant number of Christian Arabs, from their land to make way for the Zionists. Roncalli’s opinions were shared by Luigi Cardinal Maglione, the Vatican Secretary of State, but Pius XII would not be dissuaded. Roncalli set to writing out the false baptismal documents.[10]

The Christmas of 1944 saw Roncalli in Paris as Papal Nuncio to the Fourth French Republic. He succeeded in rescuing the French bishops who had sided with the Vichy government (1940-1944) against the Free French Forces. The victor, General Charles de Gaulle, was now demanding his pound of flesh.[11]

In May 1952, the 71-year-old Roncalli received word from Msgr. Montini, the Substitute of the Vatican Secretariat of State, that Pius XII had appointed Roncalli as the Vatican’s first Permanent Observer to the newly established United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in Paris. Jacques Maritain, the French Ambassador to the Holy See, was credited with the diplomatic coup.[12]

There is evidence to suggest that during his years away from Rome, Roncalli was initiated into Freemasonry even though Canon 2335 of the 1917 Code of Canon Law strictly prohibited such membership.

Veteran Vatican reporter Martínez states that Milanese journalist, Pier Carpi (a pseudonym) claims to have absolute proof that while in Istanbul, Roncalli was initiated into the Brotherhood reaching the 18th or Rosicrucian Degree.[13]

After his posting to Paris, members of the Presidential Garde Republicaine reported that Roncalli regularly attended the Thursday evening meetings of the Grand Orient Masonic Lodge.[14]

Years after the death of Pope John XXIII, favorable obituaries were issued by high level Freemasons who applauded Roncalli as a brother who imparted “his benediction, his understanding, and his protection” to the Craft.[15]

On November 14, 1952, Msgr. Roncalli received a confidential letter from Montini at the Secretariat of State asking Archbishop Roncalli if he would accept the position of Patriarch of Venice as the See was about to be vacated with the imminent death of Archbishop Carlo Agostini.[16] It was an audacious offer considering the fact that Roncalli was nearing the age of retirement.

Roncalli, anxious to return home, expressed his willingness to accept Pope Pius XII’s offer. Roncalli was elevated to the cardinalate on January 12, 1953 and was appointed Patriarch of Venice three days later.

On November 4, 1958, Cardinal Roncalli ascended the Chair of Peter as Pope John XXIII.[17] He was almost 77-years-old, but then again, he was intended to be an interim pope. His pontificate lasted less than five years, but he managed to complete his two-fold mission to set up the apparatus for the implementation of the Revolution in the form of a General Council and to prepare the way for his successor, Giovanni Battista Montini.

Pope John XXIII’s Consistories

At the Consistory of December 15, 1958, Giovanni Battista Montini, Archbishop of Milan was the first cardinal created by Pope John XXIII. In the four Consistories that followed, Roncalli brought the College of Cardinals well past its full complement of 70.[18] Archbishop Montini supplied the list of candidates.[19]

It was a Vatican rendition of “pack the College of Cardinals,” reminiscent of the 1930s when President Franklin D. Roosevelt tried to pack the Supreme Court. The big difference, however, was that FDR got caught.

In the naming of new cardinals, two factors predominated – the need to continue the internationalization, that is, the de-Romanization of the Curia begun under Pius XII and the need to line up votes for a pro-Montini conclave.

Among those framers of NewChurch who received the red hat from the hands of Pope John XXIII were:

  • Augustine Bea, SJ
  • Leo-Jozef Suenens, Archbishop of Malines-Brussels, Belgium
  • Amleto Giovanni Cicognani, Apostolic Delegate in the United States
  • Carlo Confalonieri, Secretary of the Sacred Congregation of Seminaries and Universities
  • Franziskus König, Archbishop of Vienna, Austria
  • Paolo Giobbe, , Nuncio-internuncio in Holland
  • Julius Döpfner, Bishop of Berlin, Germany
  • Arcadio María Larraona, CMF, Secretary of the Sacred Congregation of Religious
  • Bernard Jan Alfrink, Archbishop of Utrecht, Holland

Less than three months after becoming pope,  John XXIII consecrated Albino Luciani, the future Pope John Paul I, Bishop of Vittorio Veneto (Italy). Pope Paul VI made Luciani, Patriarch of Venice. Archbishop Luciani’s name topped Pope Paul VI’s list for the red hat at the Consistory of March 5, 1973. Cardinal Luciani shared the distinction of being one of the very few Italians admitted to the Montini circle.[20]

Pope John XXIII Calls for a General Council

Historically speaking, there are four reasons for a pope to call an Ecumenical (“Universal”) or General Council of all the bishops of the world: 1) to end a schism; 2) to condemn heresies; 3) for dogmatic purposes; and 4) to institute reform in the traditional sense, that is, to attack laxity in matters of Church discipline or morals.[21]

Pope John XXIII’s Ecumenical Council (1962-1965) was not called for any of these reasons. It was called for the ostensible purpose of aggiornamento or “updating” the Church and bringing the Church into the “modern world.”

The Council was declared to be a “pastoral” as opposed to a “dogmatic” Council. This verbal distinction, however, set up a false dichotomy for revealed Truth is never opposed to genuine pastoral considerations.

Certainly, Pope John XXIII was not into condemnations and anathemas that, in the past, were precursors of legitimate reforms in the life of the Church. He made this point quite clear in a speech that was drafted by Montini, to the more than 2000 Council Fathers gathered for the solemn opening of the Council in St. Peter’s Basilica on October 11, 1962.[22]

As noted by Amerio in Iota Unum, Pope Paul VI later reformulated the objectives of the Council to include 1) the Church’s taking account of itself ; 2) “reform” in terms of self-correction; 3) the causa unionis, that is, the issue of Christian unity; and, 4) “to throw out a bridge to the modern world.”[23]

The inspiration for the Council was said to have struck Pope John XXIII like a “flash of lightening from heaven.” The reality, it appears, was a bit more mundane.

Pope Pius XI had interrogated his Cardinals on the timeliness of a General Council at a secret consistory on May 23, 1923, and they advised against it on the grounds that it would likely open the door to the architects of Revolution within the Church.[24]

Pius XII also considered convening a General Council early in his pontificate, and went so far as to instruct the Holy Office to draw up a preliminary prospectus.[25] The First Secretary of the secret Preparatory Commission was Father Pierre Charles, a Belgium Jesuit.[26] Unfortunately for the revolutionaries, the contingencies of the Second World War followed by the Cold War and the lack of funds militated against the calling of an Ecumenical Council at that time.[27]

As noted by Martínez, by the time Pope John XXIII took office, Archbishop Montini in conjunction with the Rhine Group that included such revolutionary luminaries as the Swiss theologian Hans Küng, Leo-Jozef Suenens, Julius Döpfner, Franziskus König, Augustin Bea and Albino Luciani, had already reworked Pope Pius XII’s plans for a General Council in a series of secret high-level meetings held in Munich.[28]

Roncalli was not present at these meetings.

While Pope John XXIII had the Curia and Preparatory Commission for the Council feverishly preoccupied with the drafting of orthodox schemas that were ostensibly intended to serve as the basis for deliberation by the Council Fathers, Montini and Company were busy drawing up parallel schemas that would be substituted when the order came down to discard the Curia-approved drafts and begin again.[29]

As for the members of the Loyal Opposition, they were largely unorganized and weak and they made the fatal error of grossly underestimating the abilities of the enemy. Midway through the Council, they fell into a state of utter collapse. This was not surprising as both Pope John XXIII and Pope Paul VI, who ultimately held the keys to power in the Church, were against them.

The Plot Against the Church by Maurice Pinay, printed originally in Italian, was distributed in the fall of 1962 during the opening days of the Council. The book was one indication that not everyone was clueless concerning the political and theological intrigue generated by the framers of the Council.[30]

However, the early warning signs that grave mischief was afoot were easily dismissed by the majority of Church Fathers in the euphoric atmosphere and hyper media glitz that greeted the opening of the Second Vatican Council. Nevertheless, the fact that the enemies of the Church, including the Liberal Establishment, Communists, Freemasons and Zionists universally hailed the event as a monumental step forward for humanity, should have given the Church Fathers cause for concern.

Cardinal Montini – The Hidden Hand

Today, it is freely acknowledged by both opponents and supporters of the Revolution that has swept through the Catholic Church, that Cardinal Montini controlled the direction and agenda of the early days of the Council from behind the scenes in Milan. After the Council opened, Montini moved the center of his operation to his suite of rooms at the Vatican, rooms traditionally reserved for resident cardinals.

CLICK here for Randy Engel's unparalleled exposé

On January 26, 1959, only one day after Pope John XXIII had publicly announced the convening of a General Council for the Universal Church, Archbishop Montini addressed a Messaggio to the faithful of Milan. His musings on the upcoming Council suggests he either had a crystal ball or he was in on the ground floor of the elite shakers and movers of the Council.

According to Amerio, on the eve of the Council, L’Osservatore Romano carried portions of the text of a book written by Cardinal Montini on the future Council that was published by the University of Milan.  Montini stated that the Council’s mission was to rearrange the Faith so as to minimize its supernatural elements, in order to render it more acceptable to the modern world and modern man.[31]

In a similar vein, Martínez reports that four days before Pope John’s “flash of lightening” experience that allegedly inspired the Council, Küng told an astonished lecture hall audience in the Hofkirche (Abbey Court Church) in Luzern, Switzerland, not only would there be a General Council, but he also outlined its direction and agenda.[32]

With the publication of The Council, Reform and Reunion one year before the opening of the Council, Küng demonstrated that he knew more about the upcoming Council than did Pope John.[33]

Betrayal

In preparation for the Council, Catholic bishops around the world were polled by mail by the Office of the Secretariat to learn their opinions on topics to be considered at the Council. Communism topped the list.

However, as documented in the previous chapter, at the instigation of Cardinal Montini, two months before the opening of the Council, Pope John XXIII approved the signing of the Metz Accord with Moscow officials, whereby the Soviets would permit two representatives from the Russian State Church to attend the Council in exchange for absolute and total silence at the Council on the subject of Communism/Marxism.

With the exceptions of Cardinal Montini, who instructed Pope John to enter into negotiations with the Soviets, Cardinal Eugène Tisserant who signed the Accord, and Bishop Jan Willebrands who made the final contacts with the representatives of the Russian State Church, the Church Fathers at the Council were ignorant of the existence and nature of the Metz Agreement and the horrendous betrayal that it represented.[34]

The degree of deception and duplicity surrounding the terms of the Metz Accord is clear when we read Father Ralph Wiligen’s popular commentary on the Council, The Rhine Flows into the Tiber, written in 1966, in which the author assures his readers that there were no obstacles to a debate on Communism at the Council:

The matter of Communism did not come up directly at either the Paris or the Moscow meetings. No request was made by the Russian Orthodox Church that the subject should not be treated at the Council, and no assurance was given by Monsignor Willebrands that it would not. In explaining the Council agenda, Monsignor Willebrands simply stated that the problem was treated positively in the Council program. However he made it clear that, once the Council opened, the Council Fathers were free to alter the program and introduce any topic they wished.[35]

The Soviets, however, did not have everything their way at the Council.

Prior to the arrival of the Russian State Church Observers on October 12, 1962, the Ukrainian Bishops of emigration issued a public statement in which they expressed their “bitterness” that Bishop Josyf Ivanovycè Slipiy, the only survivor of eleven Ukrainian bishops, who spent 18 years in Stalinist prisons, labor camps and Siberian exile, was not at the Council. Yet, Church officials had arranged for officials of the Russian State Church to be represented at the Council.[36]

The Ukrainian press release stated that the presence of the two Russian State Church Observers at the Second Vatican Council “has perturbed the believers…an ecumenical act is accomplished and the suffering of the Ukrainian Church is forgotten?”[37] The press release pointed out that the presence of the Russians at the Council “is not able to be considered a fact of a religious and ecclesiastical character, but an act contaminated by a purpose alien to religion, conducted by the Soviet regime in order to spread confusion.”[38]

We know, today, that the Church Fathers were, in fact, not free agents in regard to the issue of Communism/Marxism at the Second Vatican Council, and that it was Cardinal Tisserant’s duty as the First President of the Council to insure their silence on the matter and to make sure that the issue was never made a subject of formal debate or discussion at the Council.

That took some doing in light of the determination of many prelates to press for a separate schema devoted to a comprehensive refutation of Communism. Cardinal Tisserant was able to pull it off because of Pope Paul VI’s ability to control the agenda of the Council. When the dust had settled, the only reference to Communism was a footnote citing past declarations by former popes against Communism. The betrayal was complete. In the coming age of Ostpolitik condemnation of Communism no longer had a predominant place in the Roman Magisterium.

A paradigm shift in the Church’s historic condemnation of Communism is but one of the many sea changes that occurred in the Church under the relatively brief pontificate of Pope John XXIII.

Pope John was also responsible for important changes in the Sacred Liturgy as well as the introduction of numerous liturgical novelties.

These included the promotion of the so-called “Dialogue Mass” begun under Pius XII, in which the congregation recites much of the Mass along with the responses in unison with the priest. Pope John ordered the suppression of the Leonine Prayers at the end of Mass that included the Hail Holy Queen and the prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel. He also suppressed the Last Gospel, the Gospel of Saint John. In 1960, he removed the adjective perfidi (unfaithful) from the solemn intercession for the Jews on Good Friday.[39] In 1962, Pope John directed that Saint Joseph’s name be inserted in the Canon of the Mass, a critically symbolic action since the text of the Canon was held to be inviolate.

Pope John XXIII was not what traditionalists would call, a “Marian pope.”[40]

According to Frere Michel de la Sainte-Trinite, author of the famous four-volume work on Fatima, Toute la verite sur Fatima, on September 13, 1959, all the Bishops of Italy solemnly consecrated their nation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. However, “the movement was so little encouraged by Pope John XXIII, that his silence and reserve could not pass unnoticed,” said Frere Michel.[41]

On August 17, 1959, Pope John had the envelope containing the Third Secret of Fatima brought to him at Castelgandolfo, the first two Secrets having been revealed in 1942 with the permission of Pope Pius XII. Years later, Cardinal Ottaviani, Prefect for the Holy Office, who was present at the historic event, said that Pope John XXIII placed the Secret “in one of those archives which are like a very deep, dark well, to the bottom of which papers fall and no one is able to see them anymore.”[42] Pope John dismissed the Third Secret with the comment that it was “not for our time.”[43]

In March 1963, only three months before his death, Pope John, most certainly under directions from Cardinal Montini, established a six-member Commission to study the subjects of birth control (no births and no control) and population (people) control. This early Commission laid the groundwork for the Humanae Vitae debacle in 1968 and the crisis of authority that accompanied it. We will return to this sorry chapter in the history of the Church later in this chapter.

With the death of Pope John XXIII on June 3, 1963 at the age of 81, the eyes of the world turned to his successor, Giovanni Battista Cardinal Montini, who ascended the Chair of Peter as Pope Paul VI.[44]

Pope Paul VI – The Early Years

Having already touched upon certain aspects of the early life of young Giovanni Battista Montini in the form of short anecdotes that are found scattered through this text, a brief recollection of his early years will suffice.

Montini was born on September 26, 1897 in the family’s country home in the village of Concesio, five miles north of Brescia in Lombardy.[45] At birth, the matriarch of the family, Francesca Buffali Montini, his fraternal grandmother, determined that the infant’s mother, Giuditta, was too weak to nurse, and the child was shipped off to Peretti with a wetnurse for the first 14 months of his life.[46]

The young Battista lived a cosseted life of ease and comfort as the “frail,” “whining” middle child wedged between two apparently healthy brothers, Lodovico, the elder and Francesco, the younger.

Giorgio Montini, Battista’s father was a successful journalist, editor of the local Catholic paper Il Cittadino and a member of the Italian Chamber of Deputies. Both Giorgio and Giuditta Montini shared a passion for the politics of the Left, a passion that was passed down to all their sons.

At the age of six, Battista was enrolled at the Jesuit Collegio Cesare Arici in Brescia. He remained here until he was 14, at which time his parents removed him for health reasons.[47]

Like Pacelli, Battista’s secondary education was carried out in private with tutors selected by his parents including priests from the Oratory at the nearby Church of Santa Maria della Pace. The Oratorians represented the clerical avant-garde of the day. They were more politically attuned to the anti-Fascist politics of Giorgio Montini and his wife than the traditionalist Jesuit priests at Arici. The Oratorians remained one of the most important influences on Battista throughout his life. Even after Battista entered the service of the Holy See, he retained an Oratorian confessor.

Again, as was the case with Eugenio Pacelli, after their son’s ordination as a priest of Brescia on May 29, 1920, the Montinis used their influence with the Vatican’s Old Boys’ Network to get Battista out of a parish assignment and to Rome in order that he might begin his diplomatic career in the service of the Holy See. I use the word “career” as opposed to “vocation” advisedly.

Montini’s somewhat toady biographer, Peter Hebblethwaite, was at least honest enough to assert that much.

Battista was not particularly religious – politics and the piano were his forte. Aside from saying Mass and performing various sacramental rites, the young priest appeared to have little in the way of a spiritual life. The young Father Battista also displayed an aversion for Marianist devotions particularly the Rosary. He said he preferred more Christ-centered approach to Mariology.[48]

On November 18, 1921 Father Montini entered the Accademia dei Nobili Ecclesiastici to study diplomacy. His entrance into the Academy was facilitated by Rampolla’s long-time ally, Cardinal Pietro Gasparri, now Secretary of State. An excellent politician-priest, but a poor scholar, Montini whizzed through his diplomatic courses, but barely managed to earn his degree in canon law from the Gregorian.

In 1923, Pope Pius XI sent the young diplomat to Warsaw as an attaché of the Papal Nunciature, but Msgr. Montini’s delicate health could not abide the severe Polish winters and he returned to Rome where he was assigned to the Secretariat of State headed by Cardinal Gasparri.

Life in the Roman Curia

Fr. Montini’s immediate superior at the Secretariat was none other than Msgr. Francesco Borgongini-Duca, soon to be made Archbishop. Msgr. Borgongini-Duca was the Vatican’s first Nuncio to Italy after the signing of the Lateran Treaties. The reader will recall that Borgongini-Duca was young Father Francis Spellman’s patron and a close associate of Angelo Roncalli. He now took young Montini under his wing and became both the young cleric’s patron and protector.

In addition to his work at the Curia, Pope Pius XI assigned Father Montini to the chaplaincy of the Federation of Italian Catholic University Students (FUCI) where the young priest was able to vent his anti-Fascist spleen. Through the FUCI, Montini developed a lasting personal friendship with Aldo Moro, one of the founders of a post-war political anomaly known as the Christian Democratic Party (CDP) to which Montini and his entire family religiously committed themselves.

Montini also struck up a friendship with the CDP leader Giulio Andreotti who went on to become Italy’s seven-time Prime Minister. During his long political career, Andreotti carved out Party alliances with the Communists, Freemasons and the Sicilian Mafia.[49] It is a well-known fact that the Mafia could never have grown into the colossus it was without the collusion of certain Christian Democratic leaders and the backing of Freemasonry.[50] To be in bed with one was to be in bed with the all three, a truth Montini came to appreciate as Pope Paul VI.

For the 30 years that he worked at the Holy Office, Msgr. Montini was never well liked by Curial officials or their staff. The pro-Fascist Nicola Cardinal Canali, head of the Vatican Administration, did not disguise his intense dislike for the young diplomat. Msgr. (later Cardinal) Alfredo Ottaviani, who tended to be apolitical, also despised the young Montini.

During the Abyssinian War, Father Montini voiced his support for the League of Nations, a position contrary to official Vatican policy. Pope Pius XI believed that the newly created international organization would usurp the Holy See’s role as mediator in international disputes, which it did, and that the League was a den of Freemasons and Communists, which it was.[51]

Some members of the Italian hierarchy deplored Father Montini’s rabid anti-Fascist, pro-Communist sentiments, which the young diplomat never bothered to hide. Some Italian bishops were distressed by what they perceived as his total lack of patriotism for his native country, indeed Montini never appeared to have any scruples about betraying his country and his countrymen to the British, Soviets and Americans during the Second World War.[52] Fascist hero Roberto Farinacci claimed that it was well known that Montini was the friend of the enemies of Italy.[53]  He had a point.

In 1934, Montini took a rare break from his work at the Secretariat to visit England and Scotland with his Sicilian traveling companion, Mariano Rampolla da Tindaro, grand nephew of Cardinal Rampolla.[54]

Three years later, Cardinal Pacelli, now Secretary of State, promoted Montini to the rank of Sostituto for Ordinary Affairs, and in 1938 he invited Montini to accompany him to Bucharest for the International Eucharistic Congress.

After Pacelli took office as Pope Pius XII on March 12, 1939, Montini continued to work at the Secretariat under Cardinal Luigi Maglione, the new Secretary of State. However, his stock had gone up considerably with the election of Eugenio Pacelli, who is said to have been like a second father to Montini.

The War Years

During the Second World War, Pius XII assigned Montini to the task of helping prepare Italy for an orderly postwar political transition including the structuring of a new Italian government based on the Christian Democratic Party model.

Montini was put in charge of running an underground network used to aid the escape of political refugees, including Jews, out of the country. At the end of the war, the Vatican “ratlines” were used for other purposes including “Operation Paperclip,” that transferred top German and Austrian scientists to the United States so they would not fall into the hands of the Soviets.[55] Montini also helped coordinate Vatican efforts to assist prisoners of war and their families through the International Red Cross.

Throughout the war, Father Battista Montini, priest-diplomat by day and intriguer by night, worked closely with Allied military and intelligence officers from the U.S. Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and British and Soviet Intelligence against the Fascists, Japanese and Nazis.  Montini was instrumental in gathering intelligence for the Allies from Jesuits in Japan concerning strategic bombing targets.[56] The OSS, in turn, hastened to fill the Vatican coffers with U.S. dollars and the treasuries of the Sicilian Mafia and Italian Freemasons (whom Mussolini had driven underground), in order to expedite the Allied invasion of Italy.

One of Montini’s important wartime friends was the unmarried Sir Francis Godllopin D’Arcy Osborne, the British Ambassador to the Vatican who had taken up his post in 1936. When Italy entered the war on the side of Germany, Osborne and his staff and personal male entourage of secretary, butler and footman sought refuge in the Vatican.[57]  He and Montini became close friends.

Osborne characterized Msgr. Montini as an excellent diplomat, although not of the same high caliber as his co-worker at the Secretariat, Msgr. (later Cardinal) Domenico Tardini. He said that Montini was a workaholic, always in control, and ever a gentleman. Personally he found Montini to be gentle, persuasive, but indecisive.[58] After the war, Osborne spent his last days in Rome where he sponsored a Boys’ Club operated by the Salesian Fathers.[59] A cradle Protestant who occasionally dabbled in the occult, Osborne died outside the Church, despite Montini’s alleged efforts to convert him to Catholicism.

Secret Negotiations with Communists

During the summer of 1944, as the war was drawing to an end, Msgr. Montini entered into high-level negotiations with the Italian Communists to determine the role that the Communist Party would play in post-war era. His objective was to fashion an alliance with the Christian Democratic Party, Socialists, and Communists.[60]            As reported by Martínez, a meeting took place on July 10, 1944 between Msgr. Montini, acting on behalf of Pope Pius XII, and Palmiro Togliatti, the undisputed leader of Italy’s Communist Party who had recently returned to Rome after 18 years of exile in the Soviet Union.[61]

It was the first direct contact between the Vatican and a leader of Communism. A tentative plan was drafted as the basis of an agreement between the Christian Democratic Party, the Socialists and the Communists that would give the three political parties total control in any post-war government in Italy. The plan also outlined the conditions for future cooperation between the Catholic Church and the Soviet Union.[62]

Pius XII attempted to reward Msgrs. Montini and Tardini for their years of devoted service to the Holy See by raising them to cardinalate in a secret Consistory in 1952, but both men respectfully declined the honor.[63] This meant that Montini was not a member of the College of Cardinals and therefore not considered a candidate for the papacy in the 1958 conclave that elected Roncalli as Pope John XXIII.

On November 1, 1954, Pius XII appointed Montini, Archbishop of Milan. The consecration was carried out on December 12, 1954 by Eugène Cardinal Tisserant. In Milan, Montini could gain the pastoral experience he sorely lacked while continuing to build his constituency among the College of Cardinals.

Montini in Milan

… And the first opinion which one forms of a prince, and of his

understanding, is by observing the men he has around him; and

when they are capable and faithful he may always be considered

wise, because he has known how to recognize the capable and to

keep them faithful. But when they are otherwise one cannot form

a good opinion of him, for the prime error which he made was in

choosing them.[64]

Niccolo Machiavelli

The Prince (1513)

Once in Milan, the 57-year-old Montini found himself suddenly free, after 30 years, from all Curial oversight and papal restraint. Archbishop Montini set a new course for himself that would leave an indelible mark on his bishopric and future pontificate.  He gathered about him a coterie of like-minded liberal fellow travelers, anarchists, Communists, Socialists, Mafiosi, and members of Milan’s artistic and literary avant-garde. As virtue attracts men of virtue, so vice attracts men of vice. The rumor mills of Milan began to run full throttle.

It soon became very clear that Montini was not a Marian priest. He was, in fact, a Maritainist priest, an altogether different being.[65]

From almost the first day of his arrival, the Milanese, who have a great devotion to the Mother of God, started to complain that Archbishop Montini lacked “Marian sensitivity,” a charge reinforced by the archbishop’s conspicuous absence from traditional May crowning festivities and pilgrimages to Loreto, and his non-participation in the public recitation of the Rosary.[66] Pope Paul VI’s biographer Hebblethwaite tried to soften the criticism by claiming that Montini favored a “Christ-centered mariology” instead, but even this verbal concession  fell short of the mark.

In truth, the theology of Battista Montini was anthropocentric not theocentric. It was man-centered not God-centered.

Montini was the greatest and most influential disciple of Jacques Maritain and his “Integral Humanism” aptly described by H. Caron in Le Courrier de Rome as embracing “…a universal fraternity of men of good will belonging to different religions or no religion at all. It is within this fraternity that the Church should exercise a leavening influence without imposing itself and without demanding that it be recognized as the one true Church.” [67]

The Abbé Georges de Nantes captures the spirit of Maritain’s “Intergral Humanism” in his acronym MASDU – a Movement for the Spiritual Animation of World Democracy (Mouvement d’Animation Spirituelle de la Democratie Universelle) in which the Declaration of the Rights of Man replaces the Gospel of Jesus Christ, World Democracy has become analogous to the Kingdom of God on earth, and the function of religion is to provide inspiration and Spiritual Animation for mankind thus regenerated – the end product of MASDU being the complete annihilation of Religion and “its metamorphosis into atheistic Humanism.”[68]

It was said of the new Archbishop of Milan that he didn’t hear church bells, he heard factory whistles.

It is not surprising therefore that on one of his visits to the Archbishop’s residence, Jacques Maritain, the once great Thomistic philosopher, brought with him, Saul David Alinsky, the “Apostle of Permanent Revolution.” Montini was so impressed with the man who Maritain called his “warm, personal friend” and “one of the really great men of this century,” that the archbishop invited Alinsky to be his guest for a fortnight in order to consult with him on the Church’s relationship to local Communist unions.[69]

Born in Chicago in 1909, Saul Alinsky, a non-believing Jew, was a graduate of the streets of Chicago and the University of Chicago. In 1940, he founded the Industrial Areas Foundation as a showcase for his revolutionary tactics for mass organization for power.[70] Alinsky’s closest associates were to be found among the Catholic hierarchy and clergy including Cardinal Mundelein, his protégé Bishop Bernard Sheil, and activist-priest Msgr. John Egan, a prime mover in Call to Action.[71] Alinsky’s principle source of seed money and support was the Rockefeller family, the wealthy and secret Communist Marshall Field, and the United States Catholic Conference and AmChurch. Alinsky worked closely with the Communist Party/USA until his break with the Party after the signing of the Nazi-Soviet Pact.[72]

In “Jacques Maritain and Saul David Alinsky – Fathers of the ‘Christian’ Revolution,’” Hamish Fraser, editor of Approaches wrote of Alinsky:

Alinsky himself is a product of both Freemasonic and Revolutionary Marxist naturalism both of which appreciate the necessity of elites to the seizure and the maintenance of effective power.…Alinsky was an unbeliever to whom the very idea of dogma was anathema.…Given Alinsky’s naturalism it is not surprising that there is no room in his “social ethics” for any absolutes, for anything intrinsically “good” or “evil.” …Divorced once and legally married thrice, he spoke contemptuously of “the old culture when virginity was a virtue.…Alinsky’s “church of today and tomorrow’ is to be neither Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist nor Animist, but a one-world syncretism, synaptic amalgam of all and every existing belief.[73]

As Fraser notes, what was most unique about Saul Alinsky was not “his recipe for a one-world syncretist ‘church,’ but that he was the first to have his ideas widely accepted within the Catholic Church.”[74] However, had not Jacques Maritain and his greatest disciple Pope Paul VI laid the foundation for the Revolution in the Church, Alinky’s alliance and intimacy with the Church would have been impossible, concludes Fraser.[75]

During his eight years as Archbishop of Milan, Montini’s increasingly radicalized politics brought him into conflict with other members of the Italian Episcopal Conference including Archbishop Gilla Vicenzo Gremigni of the Diocese of Novara.

Once he had established himself in the diocese, Archbishop Montini made a decision to dissolve and relocate Il Popolo d’Italia, a well-established newspaper published in the Diocese of Novara. Bishop Gremigni, the Ordinary of Novara, protested, and rightly so, that the matter lay outside of Montini’s jurisdiction.

In early January 1963, only six months before his election to the Chair of Peter, Montini was reported to have sent the Archbishop of Novara a letter of such a nature that Gremigni experienced a fatal heart attack upon readings its contents. The letter was found by Gremigni’s Auxiliary Bishop, Msgr. Ugo Poletti, and kept in his possession. When Montini departed from Milan for Rome the ghost of Archbishop Gremigni followed him in the person of Msgr. Poletti. In 1967, the Italian media received a tip that the pope was somehow connected to Archbishop Gremigni’s death. Shortly thereafter, Pope Paul VI appointed Poletti to head the Diocese of Spoleto. It was the first of a seemingly miraculous series of spontaneous papal promotions for the ambitious prelate that included the post of Vicar of Rome and a red hat awarded by Pope Paul VI on March 5, 1973.[76]

The Archbishop’s Milan Mafia

Two of Montini’s closest aides in Milan were Msgr. Giovanni Benelli and Msgr. Pasquale Macchi.

Montini had recruited Benelli at the age of 26 only a few years after his ordination, to serve as his secretary at the Secretariat of State. When Montini went to Milan, Benelli followed. After Montini’s election to the papacy, Benelli followed him back to Rome. In 1966, the 45-year-old cleric served for a year as Papal Nuncio to Senegal, and then returned to Rome as Paul VI’s representative to the Roman Curia. One year before his death, Pope Paul VI made his faithful servant a Cardinal and installed him as Archbishop of Florence.[77] One of Benelli’s most famous protégés was American priest Father (later Cardinal) Justin Rigali.

Benelli’s rival for Montini’s attention and affection was the Archbishop’s private secretary, Msgr. Pasquale Macchi, dubbed “Montini’s Mother Pasqualina.” A native of Varese about 34 miles north of Milan, Macchi, was a seminary teacher and he knew his way around the city of Milan and its underworld. Macchi had an affinity for French philosophy and modern art and he brought many of his artistic friends to meet Archbishop Montini.

After Montini’s election to the papacy, Macchi followed his master to Rome where he became the pope’s advisor on all things esthetic and the keeper of dark secrets.[78] Macchi, who Peter Hebblethwaite claimed was “well connected in the world of high finance” was on intimate terms with four of Pope Paul’s top financial advisors Michele Sindona, Msgr. Paul Marcinkus, Roberto Calvi and Bishop Donato DeBonis – crooks all.[79]

Although dissimilar in personality and temperament, Macchi and Benelli did have at least one thing in common – Freemasonry.

In 1976, the names (along with code names and date of initiation) of Msgr. (later Archbishop) Pasquale Macchi and Msgr. (later Cardinal and Secretary of State) Giovanni Benelli, appeared on a list of highly placed Vatican officials belonging to secret societies. The list was published in the journal Il Borghese. However, the charges that both men, intimates of the Holy Father, were Freemasons appeared to have no effect on their future advancement under the pontificates of Pope Paul VI and Pope John Paul II.

Archbishop Montini Meets “the Shark”

Michele Sindona, aka, “the Shark” was an underworld financial fixture in Milan long before Montini became Archbishop.[80]

Born in Messina at the eastern end of Sicily in 1917, the Jesuit educated Sindona was studying law when the British and American troops invaded Italy during World War II. The enterprising Sindona decided to take advantage of the lucrative black market and went into the lemon and wheat business. Since the Sicilian Mafia controlled the produce trade, Sindona cut a deal with Mafioso head, Vito Genovese, whereby he would turn over a certain percentage of his earnings for protection from the mob for his business and his person.

In 1948, Sindona left the poorer war-ravaged southern boot of Italy and migrated north to the richer industrialized city of Milan where he became a “financial advisor” to a number of influential and wealthy Milanese. His Mafia credentials traveled north with him.

In 1954, when Sindona learned that Pius XII had appointed Msgr. Montini to the See of Milan, he secured a letter of introduction to the new Archbishop from the Archbishop of Messina, his home diocese. Sindona soon had a new client in Montini and the Milanese Church.

Archbishop Montini was so grateful to Sindona, that he took the Sicilian to Rome and introduced him to Pope Pius XII and Prince Massimo Spada, a senior official at the Istituto per le Opere de Religioni (the Institute for Religious Works). The IOR, which is popularly known as the Vatican Bank functions as a depository for the Church’s patrimony earmarked for charitable works.[81] Sindona became “a man of confidence” and was given virtually full control over the IOR’s foreign investment program.

The gross assets of the IOR at the time were over $1 billion, but money was secondary to the IOR’s tax-free status and its potential as a laundry for washing dirty money, specifically, Mafiosi earnings from heroin trade, prostitution and illegal political contributions from underground sources including Freemasons.[82]

In 1960, Sindona, operating under the old adage “the best way to steal from a bank is to own one,” purchased his own bank, the Banca Privata, and within a very short time was receiving deposits from the IOR. He used these funds to pyramid his own financial investments and started to launder illegal funds through the Vatican Bank.

After the election of Pope Paul VI, Sindona followed Montini to Rome and became a major player at the IOR. His operations and financial portfolio grew exponentially. In 1964, Sindona formed an international currency brokerage firm called Moneyrex with 850 client banks and annual financial dealings of $200 billion. Many members of the Palazzo, the rich and famous of Rome, used the firm to shield their fortunes from taxation through illegal offshore accounts. Sindona kept a secret ledger of his clients’ transactions with Moneyrex as insurance for a rainy day. The Vatican and Pope Paul VI, along with the name and numbers of the secret accounts of high ranking members of the Christian Democratic Party as well the Socialist and Social-Democratic Parties were all in Sindona’s little black book.

By the late 1960s, the “Gruppo Sindona” included six (later nine) banks in Italy and abroad and more than 500 giant corporations and conglomerates. One of the banks, the Franklin National Bank of New York, the 18th largest bank in the United States with assets of more than $5 billion, was purchased in part with money Sindona had skimmed off from his Italian banks.[83] He also skimmed off funds from his secret masters, that is, the Sicilian Mafia and, after 1971, from the Propaganda Duo (P2), a Mafia-inspired Masonic Lodge catering to Italy’s elite headed by Grandmaster Licio Gelli. In addition, Sindona was handling financial transactions for the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) which during the post-war period was pouring large sums of money into Italy, some of which made its way to the Vatican Bank.[84]

Meanwhile Sindona’s friend, Pope Paul VI was the recipient of bad tidings from the State. The Italian government was threatening to remove the fiscal tax exemption on the Church and Church properties and investments that the Holy See had enjoyed since the days of Mussolini’s Fascist regime. Under the revised tax-code, the Vatican State would be taxed like any other corporate entity. Sindona proposed a scheme to hide Vatican money in offshore investments and the pope agreed.

One of Sindona’s prominent protégés was a native Milanese by the name of Roberto Calvi.

Calvi was the central manager of the Banco Ambrosiano, Italy’s most prominent Catholic bank as distinguished from the lay or secular banking institutions operated by the Jews and Freemasons. Calvi was a man after Sindona’s own heart, which spelled disaster ahead not only for the Banco Ambrosiano, but also for its major depositor, the Holy See. Calvi had his own connections to the IOR through Msgr. Macchi, Montini’s personal secretary. He was also on excellent terms with an American priest at the Secretariat of State, Msgr. Paul Marcinkus.

Pope Paul VI and “the Gorilla” 

Paul Casimir Marcinkus came from humble but sturdy Lithuanian immigrant stock. He was born on January 15, 1922 in Cicero, Ill. made infamous in the 1920’s by mobster Al Capone. Soon after his graduation from St. Mary of the Lake Seminary in Mundelein and ordination as a priest of the Chicago Archdiocese, Father Marcinkus attracted the patronage of Samuel Cardinal Stritch. The young priest served Cardinal Stritch until 1952 when he was appointed to an administrative post at the Vatican Secretariat.

In 1958, Cardinal Stritch joined Marcinkus in Rome as Pro-Prefect of Propagation of the Faith, but died after only three months in office. After this, little was heard of Msgr. Marcinkus in the Roman Curia other than he enjoyed the continued favor of Stritch’s successors Cardinal Albert Meyer and Cardinal Patrick Cody. It was not long after the election of Pope Paul VI in June 1963 that Marcinkus’s career took off.

Marcinkus’ six-feet-four burly physique earned him the name “the Gorrilla” from his Italian friends at the Secretariat. Pope Paul VI first used him as a body guard and security agent on his trips abroad.[85]

In 1968, Paul VI appointed Marcinkus Secretary of the IOR. He ordained him a bishop on January 6, 1969. In 1971, Marcinkus became the President of the IOR. By this time, he had forged a strong bond with Sindona, and through Sindona, Calvi, and through them to Gelli. In other words, the Vatican Bank now shared a joint bank account with two of the Church’s traditional enemies, the Sicilian Mafia and International Freemasonry.

The successive international scandals that followed in the wake of this unholy union – the collapse of the Franklin National Bank, and the Banco Ambrosiano, the exposure of Propaganda Duo (P2) Lodge and the release of its membership list, the murders of Sindona and Calvi – are a grim reminder of a pontificate fraught with corruption.[86]

The Montinian Pontificate

There was no question in the minds of the Cardinals of the Church gathered in Rome on June 19, 1963, for the purpose of electing a new pope, that upon his death, Pope John XXIII wanted Archbishop Montini to succeed him. And so it happened.[87] It is significant, however, that even after Montini had secured the votes necessary for his election, between 22 to 25 cardinals, mainly Italians and members of the Curia, men who knew him best, refused to cast their final vote for him.[88]

Following his installation on June 30, 1963, Pope Paul VI pledged to complete the work of the Second Vatican Council begun by Pope John XXIII under his (Montini’s) instruction and guidance. And so he did.

The 15-year pontificate of Paul VI was marked by a series of unprecedented crises and betrayals as has rarely been seen in the Roman Catholic Church at any point in its 2000 year-old history.

The betrayals associated with the Second Vatican Council were put into motion by Pope John XXIII, who used his authority to facilitate the restructuring of the ten Conciliar Commissions. Pope John jettisoned all the original schemas drawn up by the Council’s Preparatory Commission over a three-year period, save one, the schema on the Sacred Liturgy.[89] Under Paul VI, the original schemas were replaced by new texts in keeping with the planned agenda that had been worked out by Archbishop Montini and the Rhine Group before the opening of the Council.

The Post-Conciliar Church of Pope Paul VI will be remembered for the following:

  • The Rape of the Liturgy

The financial ravaging and pillaging by Montini’s friends Sindona, Calvi and Marcinkus pale into insignificance when compared to the rape of the Sacred Liturgy orchestrated by Pope Paul VI and carried out before the whole world.[90] Of all the disasters to befall the Church in the post-Conciliar era, none was more deadly than the destruction of the Roman rite Mass that comes down to us from the Apostles.[91] The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the foundation of Catholic worship. It is in the Mass that the central act of Transubstantiation, that is the changing of bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ, takes place. The Mass is the font of grace. It is in the Mass that the priest realizes his true identity as High Priest and intermediary between God and man.

In was an act of inexplicable audacity for Pope Paul VI to replace the Mass of the Roman rite with a bastardized and Protestantized service called the Novus Ordo Missae (New Order of the Mass) and to impose it on priests and faithful alike.[92]

The liturgical “reforms” of Pope Paul VI included not only the wholesale destruction of the traditional Mass, but the tampering with every aspect of liturgical life including the Liturgy of the Hours (Psalter, Biblical Readings, Hymns, Chants, Intercessions), the Litany of the Saints, the Sacraments (Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Communion, Penance, Extreme Unction, Marriage, and Holy Orders), Blessings, Pontifical Rites, the Church Calendar and Sacred Music.[93]  By a miracle of grace, only the devotional of the Rosary was spared from mutilation.

  • The Attack on Thomistic Philosophy

Under Paul VI, Thomistic Scholasticism and the Natural Law Tradition were discarded in favor of a “Scripture-based” ethic and other new scientific, theological and ecclesiastical modes of thinking such as Phenomenology and Existentialism.

  • The Undermining of the Priesthood and Religious Life

 In sharp contrast to the image of the pre-Conciliar priest as being virile, masculine and celibate, the    perception of NewPriest of NewChurch is decidedly effeminate and often unchaste.

As noted by Rev. Fr. James McLucas in his essay “The Emasculation of the Priesthood,” the “expansive absorption of many sacred functions by the laity that were formerly reserved to the ordained …is inherently hostile to a healthy masculinity…”[94]

The perception of the Vatican II priest is one of softness and sentimentalism. NewPriest is charming and accommodating. He is ecumenical. He neither condemns error or those teaching error. He is everything and anything but manly. He is, in the words of Dr. Conrad Baars, incapable of doing battle “against evil for the sake of the good, ready to be hurt, but also, if need be, ready to hurt!”[95]

Fr. McLucas states that Pope Paul VI acted to weaken a mandatory celibate priesthood by opening the permanent diaconate to non-celibates, that is to married men, even though “there has never been a Holy “Order” that was non-celibate since the mandating of celibacy in the Western Church.”[96] The practice of admitting married Protestant minister converts to the priesthood has also contributed to breaking down resistance to mandatory celibacy, says McLucas.[97]

The Montinian Church eliminated “minor orders,” thus opening the door for “layministers” to take over the roles of lector and acolyte that were once reserved for men entering the ordained priesthood, says McLucas.[98] This novel practice paved the way for the “laypresider Communion rite,” he states. [99]

“ … The assumption of sacred functions by the laity, reserved to the ordained for at least fifteen hundred years,” says McLucas, “is poisoning the priesthood.”[100] “The contention proceeds from a simple premise: if the priesthood is reserved to men, as has been taught by the Church, then what does harm to the masculine nature of the ordained weakens the priesthood itself,” McLucas argues.[101]

Pope Paul VI also weakened the priesthood in other ways.

He presided over the wholesale laicization (reduction to the lay state) of thousands of validly ordained priests granting them dispensations pro gratia.[102] According to Amerio, the overall effect of these habitual dispensations was to reduce the onus of defection and to change the moral and juridical character of the breaking of vows and the abandonment of vocations.[103] The deemphasis of the sacerdotal and sublime dignity of the priesthood implicit in the Novus Ordro service and the laxity of discipline and morals that characterized seminary life and the priesthood in the Post-Conciliar period contributed to the overall decline of the priesthood and religious life.

  • The Abolition of the Oath Against Modernism

The action speaks for itself.

  • The Gutting of the Roman Curia

The destruction of the Roman Curia, despised by Montini from his earliest years at the Secretariat of State, was another “accomplishment” of the Montinian pontificate. Pope Paul VI mandated the retirement of bishops at the age of 75 and removed their right to vote at a conclave after the age of 80. In doing so, Montini cleared the Holy Office (renamed the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith) of “dead wood,” that is, prelates who were highly esteemed as men of faith, honor, character, experience and wisdom. He replaced them with men of less merit, but more to his own liking and inclinations.

As Amerio notes, in the Montinian Church there was a “decline in the formal and technical working of the Curia.”[104] The use of Latin, which permitted the members of the Curia to express statements with “nobility, lucidity, and precision in Curial style,” fell into greater disuse.[105] Even Pope Paul himself was haunted by his lack of scholarship and precision in his speeches and written works, says Amerio.[106] With the decline of the Curia came the rise in power of national episcopal conferences where the collective borg decides who shall and who shall not be awarded a bishopric depending on the candidate’s willingness to cooperate with the leaders of the Church bureaucracy.

  • The Unprecedented Fraternization of the Church with heretics, schismatic and other traditional enemies of the Church including Communists, Freemasons, Zionists and functionaries of the so-called New World Order.

The “spirit” of Vatican II hailed by all the enemies of the Church as a sure sign of divine approbation was the same “spirit” that inspired the French Revolution and its Masonic motto – égalité, liberté and fraternité.

  • The Proliferation of Ecumenical Misadventures

Especially ominous to the welfare of the Church and the faithful was the increased support and contacts Paul VI made with the Soviet-dominated World Council of Churches notorious for its funding of terrorists and “wars of liberation” in Latin America and Africa. To borrow a phrase from the late Archbishop Lefebvre, Pope Paul VI’s inter-faith activities were an exercise in “public blasphemy.”[107]

  • The Betrayal of Josyf Ivanovycè Cardinal Slipiy of the Ukraine and József Cardinal Mindszenty, Primate of Hungary, and the countless millions of victims of International Communism throughout the world most especially in Hungary, Czechoslovakia, South Vietnam, Angola, Mozambique and Uganda.
  •  The Humanae Vitae Debacle or a lesson on how to undermine Church doctrine and morals without changing Church doctrine and morals.                

As has already been noted, a short time before his death, Pope John XXIII, at the prompting of  Archbishop Montini, established a special Vatican Commission to study the issue of the regulation of births and demographic considerations with special emphasis on the reexamination of the Church’s traditional ban on contraception in light of new scientific means of hormonal-induced sterility.

The formation of a commission responsible only to the pope effectively bypassed the guardians of the faith at the Roman Curia. Once in office, Paul VI established a new and expanded three-tiered Commission  to study and make recommendations to him on the question of the “Pill” and related issues. A period of six years elapsed between the founding of the original Commission in 1963 and the issuance of Humanae Vita in 1968. This was more than sufficient time to create a state of doubt as to whether or not the Church would continue to uphold the ban against contraception. The old adage “lex dubia non obligat” (a doubtful law does not bind) gained currency among many Catholics. By the time Humane Vitae was issued, it was, for many Catholics, a “dead letter.” The whole exercise had been a lesson in how to undermine dogma and morals without changing dogma and morals.[108]

The crisis was further complicated by Paul VI’s unwillingness to enforce the ban on contraception in the face of organized and public opposition of Catholic priests and religious and professors in Catholic universities and colleges to Humane Vitae. The total effect of the long-delayed affirmation of the ban on contraception, combined with the failure to discipline those in positions of authority in the Church who were in a state of rebellion against the teaching and the teacher, was to cast a long shadow over the Church’s ability to speak infallibly on matter of faith and morals.[109]

All of the above mentioned actions associated with the reign of Pope Paul VI had catastrophic repercussions for the Church.

Also, each in its own way benefited the rapidly expanding Homosexual Collective both within and without the Church during the Post-Conciliar era and each played a role in the paradigm shift in the Church’s position on the vice of homosexuality that flowed out of the Second Vatican Council.

Yet there still remains one further factor that needs to be considered when examining the Homosexual Collective’s extraordinary success in colonizing the Catholic Church in the United States and abroad, and that is the matter of Pope Paul VI’s alleged own habituation to the vice of homosexuality.

The Case of Homosexuality Against Pope Paul VI

We begin with statements that emanate from the Homosexual Collective itself.

Pope Paul VI is identified as a homosexual in numerous homosexual publications and his name appears on virtually all lists of prominent homosexuals found on various Homosexual Collective websites.

Are these references infallible? Definitely not, especially when dealing with historical figures.

The tendency for the Homosexual Collective is to label a person as “gay,” even though little is known about his personal life. The assumption is that if there is no evidence that the individual was heterosexual he is ipso facto a homosexual. No room is left for other possibilities. For example, the individual in question may simply have been asexual or had a low sex drive. It may be that he sublimated his normal sexual urges for the sake of his art, or his profession, or in case of a celibate priest, for the love of God.

In other cases, the Collective may be correct in its historical assessment that the individual was habituated to a particular sexual vice, but that vice may not have been homosexuality.

Here the name of Hans Christian Andersen, the writer of fairy tales, comes to mind.

His name appears on a number of contemporary lists of prominent “gays” of the past. The famed sexologist Magnus Hirschfeld publicly identified Andersen as a homosexual or at the least a “latent” homosexual.[110]

More recent biographical data, however, suggests that Andersen possessed a highly narcissistic temperament, and that he was habitually and incurably addicted to the practice of solitary masturbation. As Elias Bredsdorff of Cambridge University notes in his biography of the writer, there is sufficient evidence to demonstrate that Andersen was by nature heterosexual, but with feelings of inferiority that made any relationship with a mature woman impossible for him.[111] Autoeroticism permitted him to love the one person whom Hans Christian Andersen loved best from his youth – himself.[112]

In the case of Pope Paul VI these errors do not appear to factor in the equation.

It is significant that the Homosexual Collective’s identification of Pope Paul VI as a homosexual took place long before the subject of homosexuality became part of the American consciousness. In other words, the rumor that Montini was sexually attracted to young men was part of the gossip-line of the Collective long before charges of homosexuality were publicly brought against the pope.

In the United States, the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) at its organizational meeting held on December 2, 1978 at Boston’s Unitarian Community Church, claimed: “…The Church condemns sexual deviance, but it is hypocritical, i.e., tolerating and even rewarding personal sexual hypocrisy at the highest levels as long as outward fealty is displayed to central control: Cardinal Spellman and Paul the Sixth (sic) are recent examples.”[113]

The Testimony of Robin Bryans

As revealed in the concluding segment on the Cambridge Spies, Robin Bryans, aka Robert Harbinson, the Irish writer and self-confessed homosexual, in his 1992 autobiography, The Dust Never Settles, claims that his friend Hugh Montgomery told him that he (Montgomery) and the young Montini had been lovers.

To reiterate, Hugh Montgomery was the brother of the well-known artist Peter Montgomery, the long-time sex partner of Cambridge spy Anthony Blunt. Bryans says that Hugh Montgomery was also a one-time lover of the powerful and well-known homosexual diplomat Sir Gilbert Laithwaite.[114]

During the mid-1930s, Hugh Montgomery was assigned a diplomatic post at the Vatican as the Chargé d’Affaires under Sir Alec Randall, the British representative to the Holy See. It was here that Hugh met an equally up and coming Italian junior diplomat, Msgr. Battista Montini, who allegedly shared Hugh’s sexual proclivities and the two men allegedly engaged in an affair.

According to Bryans, Hugh Montgomery and his friend Battista Montini fraternized with some pretty eccentric characters during those days including Viscount Evan Tredegar, an aristocratic convert to Catholicism who served as a Privy Chamberlain to Pope Benedict XV.[115]

The Viscount enjoyed titillating his friends with tales of his sexual exploits and the occult including his first-hand experiences with the Black Mass using human blood, urine and semen.[116] After the death of Pope Benedict XV and the election of a new pope, Pius XI, Tredegar automatically lost his honorary position of Privy Chamberlain. He abandoned his dream of being a priest and returned to his ancestral home in Wales and married. According to a close friend, Tredegar kept a picture of the young Montini “cheek by jowl with that of an ‘able-bodied’ sailor” on his bedside table along with other photographs of royalty.[117]

In an interview with British writer Stephen Dorril, co-author of Honeytrap -The Secret Worlds of Stephen Ward, Bryans repeated the story of Hugh Montgomery’s affair with Montini. Dorril said he found Bryans to be pretty much on the money when it came to his recollections of his early days as a member of the London’s elite homosexual clique.

Hugh Montgomery eventually converted to Catholicism, entered Beta College, and was ordained a Catholic priest. Little more is known about the controversial churchman.

If it is true that Montini engaged in a homosexual affair as a junior diplomat at the Vatican, it is almost certain that at least some members of the Roman Curia would have heard the rumors. However, since the young Battista was well protected by his politically powerful family and by other influential prelates  including Eugenio Pacelli, the future Pius XII, there is little that could have been done to remove Montini from his diplomatic post.

The Claims of Roger Peyrefitte

Roger Peyrefitte, French novelist and former ambassador was born in 1907. He is an avowed a homosexual and known for his outspoken views in defense of “gay rights.”

In 1976, Peyrefitte gave an interview to D.W. Gunn and J. Murat representing the Gay Sunshine Press on the subject of Pope Paul VI’s alleged homosexuality.[118]

Peyrefitte said that in January 1976, the pope gave a public speech in which he condemned homosexuality, masturbation and premarital sex. Peyrefitte said he was incensed by the pope’s hypocrisy since it was known in certain circles that while Montini was Archbishop of Milan he had a homosexual affair with a young movie actor, whose name Peyrefitte knew. The French writer said that he did not get this information from “communists or doormen” but from members of the Italian nobility with whom he was well acquainted. His Milanese sources indicated that it was a political secret in certain circles that Montini went to a “discreet house” to meet boys and that he had a particular favorite whose first name was Paul.

Following Paul VI’s condemnation of homosexuality, a French reporter from Lui came to interview Peyrefitte. That is when Peyrefitte exposed Montini’s homosexual background in Milan.

The Lui interview was picked up and reproduced by the Italian weekly newsmagazine Tempo in Rome on April 26, 1976. Peyrefitte said it was as if a time bomb had gone off.

The Vicar of Rome and the Italian Episcopal Conference called for a universal “Day of Consolation” for calumny against the Holy Father. On Palm Sunday, the pope issued a statement from his balcony at the Vatican, “….Delle cose orribili e calunniose…”[119] Peyrefitte said that his accusations against the pope went everywhere in the world.[120]

In O Vatican! A Slightly Wicked View of the Holy See, former N. Y. Times Rome Bureau correspondent Paul Hofmann repeats the Peyrefitte charges against Montini.[121] He names the well-known Italian actor, Paolo Carlini, whom Montini was alleged to have met in Milan when he was Archbishop and who later became a frequent visitor to Pope Paul VI’s private quarters at the Vatican.[122]

More Charges by the Abbé de Nantes

In the summer of 1993, the Abbé Georges de Nantes, founder of the League of the Catholic Counter-Reformation in Troyes, France in 1969, expounded on the charges of homosexuality against Pope Paul VI in the June-July issue of The Catholic Counter-Reformation in the XXth Century.[123]

The Abbé said that his comments were in response to the announcement of Pope John Paul II on May 13, 1993, the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, that the canonization process for Pope Paul VI was going forward following the preliminary diocesan proceedings carried out in Milan in 1992.

“I have received the news of the opening of the canonization process of my predecessor Paul VI. For me, he was a father in a personal sense. That is why I cannot express my great joy and gratitude,” declared Pope John Paul II.[124]

The charge of homosexuality against Pope Paul VI in Counter-Reformation begins with the Abbé recalling the charges of Paul Hofmann’s concerning la Mafia Milanese, that is, Archbishop Montini’s notorious connections to the Mafia and Freemasonry syndicate in Milan.[125]

Abbé de Nantes then makes a reference to a quote taken from an unnamed paperback in his possession that refers to a non-Italian Cardinal, “a big man, affable and keen eyed,” whom Pope Paul VI had appointed to a key Vatican post and who had a reputation for pederasty with the ragazzi, the boys in the quarter behind the Vatican.[126] He says that he was aware that after the election of Montini to the Chair of Peter there was an inordinate rise in the numbers of homosexual seminarians and priests in the United States and the Netherlands. Yet Rome did nothing, he says.[127]

Finally the Abbé recalls an incident that occurred on the eve of the 1963 conclave that elected Montini pope. He said, Reverend Father de Saint-Avit of St. Paul-Outside-The-Walls Basilica informed him the evening that the conclave opened that the morality section of the Milan police had a file on Montini. Therefore, the new pope could not and would not be Montini. But it was Montini![128]

The Abbé de Nantes then addresses Pope John Paul II:

So, after the scandal of the election of an avowed homosexual to the Throne of Saint Peter having poisoned the Church, You, Most Holy Father, would have him relive and gain strength by having this same wretch of a Paul VI raised to the altars, and his bones offered as relics to the faithful for their pious kisses, and his tormented face presented to their fervent gaze in Bernini’s Gloria? Ah no, that is impossible. It will not be![129]

The Revelations of Franco Bellegrandi

Atila Sinke Guimarães in his latest work Vatican II, Homosexuality & Pedophilia, raises the issue of  Paul VI’s homosexuality.[130] Guimarães quotes Franco Bellegrandi, a former member of the Vatican Noble Guard, part of the papal military corps, who witnessed the unfortunate changes that occurred at the Vatican after Pope Paul VI took office.

Bellegrandi repeats the charge that while Archbishop of Milan, Montini, dressed in civilian clothes, was picked up by the local police on one of the archbishop’s nocturnal visits to the male brothels of the city.

[NOTE: Click link to download PDF of Franco Bellegrandi’s exposé Nikita Roncalli.]

The former Vatican guard describes the homosexual colonization process that he says began under Pope John XXIII, but which accelerated under Montini’s rule – a process with which the reader should by now be thoroughly familiar. Bellegrandi says that old employees were turned out of their jobs at the Vatican to make room for Montini’s favored brethren afflicted with the same vice. They in turn brought along their favorite catamites – “effeminate young men wearing elegant uniforms and make up on their faces to dissimulate their beards,” says Bellegrandi.[131]

Bellegrandi says that he was told by an official of the Vatican security service that Montini’s actor-friend was permitted free access to the pontifical apartments and was seen taking the papal elevator at night.[132]

The Issue of Blackmail

One of the statements made by Bellegrandi that attracted my attention was that Montini no sooner took office than he was subject to blackmail by Italian Freemasons. In exchange for their silence regarding Archbishop Montini’s furtive sojourns to Switzerland to rendezvous with his actor-lover, who appears to have been quite open about his relationship with the prelate, the Masons demanded that the pope eliminate the Church’s traditional ban on cremation after death. The pope complied.[133]

This is not the first time that Montini’s sexual perversions made him a likely target of blackmailers.

In my correspondence with a British writer known for his familiarity with the operations of MI6, England’s foreign intelligence service, this writer inquired as to whether or not he believed that Montini’s homosexuality laid him open to blackmail by British or Soviet intelligence agents during the Second World War. He said that he believed that the British (MI6) and the Americans (OSS) knew about Montini’s homosexuality and used it against him to gain his cooperation in running the Vatican-Allied ratlines after the war. He said he had no corresponding knowledge concerning the Soviets.[134]

Information on the possible blackmail of Montini by the Soviet KGB and GRU after the war came from another source.

An elderly gentleman from Paris who worked as an official interpreter for high-level clerics at the Vatican in the early 1950s told this writer that the Soviets blackmailed Montini into revealing the names of priests whom the Vatican had clandestinely sent behind the Iron Curtain to minister to Catholics in the Soviet Union during the Cold War. The Soviet secret police were on hand as soon as the priests crossed over the Russian border and the priest infiltrators were either shot or sent to the gulag.[135]

The extent to which Pope Paul VI was subject to blackmail by the enemies of the Church will probably never be known. It may be that, in so far as the Communists and Socialists were concerned, blackmail was entirely unnecessary given Montini’s cradle-to-grave fascination and affinity for the Left. On the other hand, the Italian Freemasons, MI6, the OSS and later the CIA and the Mafia were likely to have used blackmail and extortion against Montini beginning early in his career as a junior diplomat, then as Archbishop of Milan and finally as Pope Paul VI.

The File of Cardinal Pietro Palazzini

Born on May 19, 1912, in Piobicco, Italy, the great scholar and theologian Pietro Cardinal Palazzini served as Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints from 1980 to 1988. He died on October 11, 2000.

In May 1992, the beatification cause of Paul VI was introduced by the Vicar of the Pope for Rome, Cardinal Camillo Ruini and all seemed to be proceeding well until 1997. According to Father Luigi Villa, editor of Chiesa viva, “Card. Pietro Palazzini had sent a letter to the Postulator for the “cause of beatification” of Paul VI that contained three names of the last homosexual lovers of Paul VI.”[136] Villa stated that Cardinal Palazzini was in possession of “two binders of documents that demonstrated, unequivocally , the impure and unnatural vice  of Paul VI.”[137] [add endnote 137]

The Curtain Comes Down

There can be no question that Pope Paul VI’s homosexuality was instrumental in the paradigm shift that saw the rise of the Homosexual Collective in the Catholic Church in the United States, at the Vatican and around the world in the mid-20th century.

Pope Paul VI played a decisive role in the selection and advancement of many homosexual members of the American hierarchy including Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, Terence Cardinal Cooke, John Cardinal Wright and Archbishop Rembert Weakland and Bishops George H. Guifoyle, Francis Mugavero, Joseph Hart, Joseph Ferrario, James Rausch and their heirs.

The knowledge that a homosexual sat in the Chair of Peter – knowledge that spread like wild-fire on the  “gay” gossip circuit – would certainly have served as an inducement for homosexual men to aspire to the priesthood and even prompt them to contemplate the unthinkable – a religious order or community composed exclusively of sodomites.

Most importantly, the long-guarded quasi-secret of Paul VI’s homosexual life has, for decades, contributed to the silence and cover-up by the American hierarchy on the issue of homosexuality in general and the criminal activities of pederast priests in particular.

But it is a secret no longer.

The final piece of the puzzle has been put in place.

“Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.”
