Trump, Pence, McConnell, And Washington establishment vs. Judge Roy Moore

By Chuck Baldwin

By now everyone should know that President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and the entire Washington establishment, including virtually every professional lobbyist, are doing everything they can to defeat conservative constitutionalist Judge Roy Moore for the U.S. Senate in Alabama. They are all rallying around the quintessential neocon RINO New World Order toady Luther Strange.

I’ve known Roy Moore since he was a circuit court judge in Etowah County (Gadsden), Alabama. I saw the wooden Ten Commandments plaque in the Etowah County Courthouse (that Roy had personally carved himself) before he took it with him to Montgomery when he was elected as the Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice. I was with him when, at the behest of the ACLU and SPLC, a circuit court judge in Montgomery told him to remove the wooden plaque, which he refused to do. I was with him when, as Alabama Chief Justice, a federal judge ordered him to remove a Ten Commandments monument that he had placed in the capitol rotunda, which he again refused to do. I was with him during the trial when Alabama Attorney General Bill Pryor prosecuted Judge Moore for refusing to remove the monument. I knew the Alabama governor, Fob James, who had initially appointed Pryor as attorney general. Fob told me personally that Pryor’s commitment to support Judge Moore was a litmus test to receiving the appointment.

It is an absolute fact that Fob James would have never appointed Pryor had Pryor not promised Fob that he would support Judge Moore’s right to post the Ten Commandments. Pryor promised Fob that he would support Roy Moore “all the way.” Pryor lied. But he didn’t just lie: Pryor was the chief prosecutor against Roy Moore. Pryor is a lying two-faced double-crossing Judas Iscariot. And Bill Pryor got his 30 pieces of silver for betraying Governor James and Judge Moore in the form of an appointment to the federal bench by the wretched and evil G.W. Bush – and many conservative Christians still believe that Bill Pryor (and G.W. Bush) is a “good Christian.” BARF!

Fob James had lion-like courage and was a staunch ally of Roy Moore. I stood behind Governor James when he held a press conference and told the nation that he would use the Alabama National Guard and state police if he had to do so in order to protect Judge Moore’s Ten Commandments plaque should any federal police agency try to enforce an order from a George H. W. Bush federal judge demanding that Judge Moore take it down.

Governor James was defeated for reelection by a Democrat in 1998. The establishment Republicans had forced Fob into a primary election against one of their toadies. Fob won that primary election, but the contest depleted his financial resources, and he lost the general election. In 2002, G.W. Bush’s chief political strategist Karl Rove was sent to Alabama to support a Republican lackey for governor who would roll over and leave Judge Moore to the mercy of the wolves. Rove succeeded. With a supporting governor out of the way, Rove helped orchestrate the prosecution, conviction, and removal from office of Judge Moore in 2003. Again, this was all done with the approbation (if not direction) of the “good Christian” G.W. Bush. And guess who is back in Alabama today trying to again defeat Judge Roy Moore? You guessed it: Karl Rove.

The point is, the Washington establishment has been doing everything it can to destroy Judge Roy Moore from as far back as the G.W. Bush administration and from federal judges appointed by Bush, Sr. Yes, Judge Moore’s biggest enemies have been establishment Republicans.

Now Judge Moore is running for the U.S. Senate from the State of Alabama against a neocon RINO establishment New World Order toady: Luther Strange. And once again, the President of the United States, the Vice President of the United States, the Majority Leader of the United States, and virtually the entire Washington establishment are doing everything they can to defeat this great American statesman: Judge Roy Moore.

Judge Moore is a graduate of West Point. He served as a company commander with the Military Police Corps in Vietnam. He was so respected by the men he led that they nicknamed him “Captain America.” He was a cowboy for a while. He has a black belt in martial arts. He went to law school and got his law degree. He was elected circuit court judge and twice elected Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice. He is a faithful husband, father, and grandfather. He is a Christian in the truest sense of the word – not just at election time. He is a constitutionalist. He has large portions of it memorized. He takes his oaths to the Constitution seriously. He is a man’s man. He is tough as nails. At the same time, he is as kind and gentle a man as one will ever find. He said “No” to unlawful demands to remove his Ten Commandments plaques and monuments at least three times on constitutional principles. He knows how to lose everything for doing what is right. Roy Moore knows how to fight, and he is nobody’s toady.

Here are a couple of columns I wrote about the Washington establishment’s attacks on Roy Moore back in 2003 when it all happened:

Bill Pryor’s Shocking Comments During Roy Moore’s “Trial”

Bill Pryor Got His Judas Money

If Donald Trump was remotely serious about draining the swamp in Washington, D.C., he would know that Roy Moore is EXACTLY the kind of man that needs to be in the U.S. Senate. But it is obvious that Donald Trump didn’t mean a word he said about draining the swamp or about much of anything else, for that matter.

Even more than his evil establishment predecessor G.W. Bush, Trump is bringing the entire weight of the White House against Judge Roy Moore. Trump wants another establishment lackey in the U.S. Senate so badly that both he and his vice president are personally travelling to Alabama this week to help defeat Judge Moore.

Think about it: here is a man, Roy Moore, who must be regarded as one of the most courageous men of the 20th and now 21st centuries. Here is a man who has actually read and truly understands the U.S. Constitution. Here is a man who has proven that he is willing to take on the establishment elite. And the man who said he wanted to drain the swamp in D.C., Donald Trump, is doing everything he can to DEFEAT Roy Moore and help elect another swamp creature.

Ladies and gentlemen, the Trump White House, Mitch McConnell, and the entire Washington establishment are doing everything they can to DEFEAT Judge Roy Moore.

Don’t tell me Donald Trump is a conservative; don’t tell me Trump cares about the Constitution; don’t tell me Trump wants to drain the swamp; don’t tell me Trump is an “outsider”; don’t tell me Trump is “anti-establishment.” Bull Manure! Donald Trump is just another establishment toady who masqueraded as an anti-establishment outsider in order to get elected. There is NO WAY in this world a true anti-establishment outsider, a true conservative, or a true constitutionalist could support the neocon RINO globalist Luther Strange and oppose the conservative constitutionalist American hero Roy Moore. NO WAY! NO WAY! NO WAY!

This runoff election between Roy Moore and Luther Strange will take place next Tuesday, September 26. The winner will take on a Democrat in the general election. But this is considered a safe Republican seat, so whoever wins the Republican runoff next Tuesday will doubtless be the next U.S. Senator from Alabama. This person is filling the seat left vacant by Trump’s appointment of Jeff Sessions as America’s attorney general.

To date, Roy Moore enjoys a fair lead in the polls over Luther Strange. But, again, President Trump and Vice President Pence are scheduled to campaign for Strange this week. Mitch McConnell has already spent millions of dollars trying to defeat Moore and is still shelling it out (mostly in the form of blatantly untrue attack ads against Judge Moore). And get this: virtually the entire Trump team in Alabama is supporting ROY MOORE. But now Trump himself is going to Alabama to support LUTHER STRANGE.

I’m telling you, folks. Donald Trump has taken conservatives – and Christians – for a royal ride. It’s time for Christians and conservatives to snap out of the hypnotic trance Trump has put them in and start taking a good hard look at reality: Donald Trump campaigned (masqueraded) as an anti-establishment outsider. But since becoming President, he has done nothing but cater to the establishment. He has expanded the Warfare State for the establishment; he has increased federal spending for the establishment; he has filled his administration with establishment insiders; he has backed down on DACA for the establishment; he supports replacing Obamacare with an establishment-backed GOP health care bill that is just as bad OR WORSE than Obamacare; and his massive efforts to defeat Judge Roy Moore and support the establishment toady Luther Strange absolutely prove how disingenuous Trump was during the campaign.

We need to be praying for the people of the State of Alabama. They know Roy Moore. They thought they knew Donald Trump. Now, their discernment, understanding, and convictions are being put to the test in the most serious manner possible. The people who are supporting Roy Moore also supported Donald Trump. Now, Trump is coming back to the State of Alabama to support Moore’s neocon opponent. How the people of Alabama are going to digest all of this is anybody’s guess right now.

But I know Roy Moore personally. Unlike Donald Trump, he is the REAL DEAL.

On the day following the U.S. Supreme Court’s refusal to hear Judge Moore’s case – thus paving the way for his removal from office (which took place nine days later) – I wrote a column that ended with these words:

    • The bright side of all this gloominess is that, like Daniel of old, no matter how much treachery is brought against Roy Moore, God is still with him! The greater the attacks become, the stronger he becomes! Beyond that, the door that God allows to be closed to Roy Moore today will only serve to open an even larger and more influential door tomorrow.

I wrote that on November 4, 2003. See the column here:

The Supreme Court Closed The Door On Judge Moore, But God Will Open Another One!

Well, the tomorrow I predicted for Roy Moore is here. And I know God is with him yet today. I pray the people of Alabama will be too.

P.S. I recently brought a message that was taken from Psalm 11 entitled “If The Foundations Be Destroyed, What Can The Righteous Do?” In this message, I list 25 foundational principles that have either already been destroyed or are currently being destroyed – and what Christians should be doing about it. The current attacks against Judge Roy Moore make this message all the more relevant.

Francis Non Pope Apostate Deposes Himself by Violently and Arrogantly Rebuking Brotherly Correction for His Heresies!
© [all rights reserved]
Correctio filialis de haeresibus propagatis
July 16th, 2017
Feast of our Lady of Mt Carmel
Most Holy Father,
With profound grief, but moved by fidelity to our Lord Jesus Christ, by love for the Church and
for the papacy, and by filial devotion toward yourself, we are compelled to address a correction to
Your Holiness on account of the propagation of heresies effected by the apostolic exhortation
Amoris laetitia and by other words, deeds and omissions of Your Holiness.
We are permitted to issue this correction by natural law, by the law of Christ, and by the law of
the Church, which three things Your Holiness has been appointed by divine providence to guard.
By natural law: for as subjects have by nature a duty to obey their superiors in all lawful things, so
they have a right to be governed according to law, and therefore to insist, where need be, that their
superiors so govern. By the law of Christ: for His Spirit inspired the apostle Paul to rebuke Peter
in public when the latter did not act according to the truth of the gospel (Gal. 2). St Thomas
Aquinas notes that this public rebuke from a subject to a superior was licit on account of the
imminent danger of scandal concerning the faith (Summa Theologiae 2a 2ae, 33, 4 ad 2), and ‘the
gloss of St Augustine’ adds that on this occasion, “Peter gave an example to superiors, that if at
any time they should happen to stray from the straight path, they should not disdain to be reproved
by their subjects” (ibid.). The law of the Church also constrains us, since it states that “Christ’s
faithful . . . have the right, indeed at times the duty, in keeping with their knowledge, competence,
and position, to manifest to the sacred pastors their views on matters which concern the good of
the Church” (Code of Canon Law 212:2-3; Code of Canons of Oriental Churches 15:3).
Scandal concerning faith and morals has been given to the Church and to the world by the
publication of Amoris laetitia and by other acts through which Your Holiness has sufficiently made
clear the scope and purpose of this document. Heresies and other errors have in consequence
spread through the Church; for while some bishops and cardinals have continued to defend the
divinely revealed truths about marriage, the moral law, and the reception of the sacraments, others
have denied these truths, and have received from Your Holiness not rebuke but favour. Those
cardinals, by contrast, who have submitted dubia to Your Holiness, in order that by this timehonoured
method the truth of the gospel might be easily affirmed, have received no answer but
Most Holy Father, the Petrine ministry has not been entrusted to you that you might impose
strange doctrines on the faithful, but so that you may, as a faithful steward, guard the deposit
against the day of the Lord’s return (Lk. 12; 1 Tim. 6:20). We adhere wholeheartedly to the doctrine
of papal infallibility as defined by the First Vatican Council, and therefore we adhere to the
© [all rights reserved]
explanation which that same council gave of this charism, which includes this declaration: “The
Holy Spirit was not promised to the successors of Peter that they might, by His revelation, make
known some new doctrine, but that, by His assistance, they might religiously guard and faithfully
expound the revelation or deposit of faith transmitted by the apostles” (Pastor aeternus, cap. 4). For
this reason, Your Predecessor, Blessed Pius IX, praised the collective declaration of the German
bishops, who noted that “the opinion according to which the pope is ‘an absolute sovereign
because of his infallibility’ is based on a completely false understanding of the dogma of papal
infallibility.”1 Likewise, at the 2nd Vatican Council, the Theological Commission which oversaw the
Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, Lumen gentium, noted that the powers of the Roman pontiff
are limited in many ways.2
Those Catholics, however, who do not clearly grasp the limits of papal infallibility are liable to be
led by the words and actions of Your Holiness into one of two disastrous errors: either they will
come to embrace the heresies which are now being propagated, or, aware that these doctrines are
contrary to the word of God, they will doubt or deny the prerogatives of the popes. Others again
of the faithful are led to put in doubt the validity of the renunciation of the papacy by Pope
Emeritus Benedict XVI. Thus, the Petrine office, bestowed upon the Church by our Lord Jesus
Christ for the sake of unity and faith, is so used that a way is opened for heresy and for schism.
Further, noting that practices now encouraged by Your Holiness’s words and actions are contrary
not only to the perennial faith and discipline of the Church but also to the magisterial statements
of Your predecessors, the faithful reflect that Your Holiness’s own statements can enjoy no greater
authority than that of former popes; and thus the authentic papal magisterium suffers a wound of
which it may not soon be healed.
We, however, believe that Your Holiness possesses the charism of infallibility, and the right of
universal jurisdiction over Christ’s faithful, in the sense defined by the Church. In our protest
against Amoris laetitia and against other deeds, words and omissions related to it, we do not deny
the existence of this papal charism or Your Holiness’s possession of it, since neither Amoris laetitia
nor any of the statements which have served to propagate the heresies which this exhortation
insinuates are protected by that divine guarantee of truth. Our correction is indeed required by
fidelity to infallible papal teachings which are incompatible with certain of Your Holiness’s
As subjects, we do not have the right to issue to Your Holiness that form of correction by which
a superior coerces those subject to him with the threat or administration of punishment (cf. Summa
Theologiae 2a 2ae, 33, 4). We issue this correction, rather, to protect our fellow Catholics – and those
outside the Church, from whom the key of knowledge must not be taken away (cf. Lk. 11:52) –
hoping to prevent the further spread of doctrines which tend of themselves to the profaning of
all the sacraments and the subversion of the Law of God.

We wish now to show how several passages of Amoris laetitia, in conjunction with acts, words, and
omissions of Your Holiness, serve to propagate seven heretical propositions.3
The passages of Amoris laetitia to which we refer are the following:
AL 295: ‘Saint John Paul II proposed the so-called “law of gradualness” in the
knowledge that the human being “knows, loves and accomplishes moral good by
different stages of growth”. This is not a “gradualness of law” but rather a gradualness
in the prudential exercise of free acts on the part of subjects who are not in a position
to understand, appreciate, or fully carry out the objective demands of the law.’
AL 296: “There are two ways of thinking which recur throughout the Church’s history:
casting off and reinstating. The Church’s way, from the time of the Council of
Jerusalem, has always been the way of Jesus, the way of mercy and reinstatement. The
way of the Church is not to condemn anyone for ever.”
AL 297: ‘No one can be condemned for ever, because that is not the logic of the
AL 298: ‘The divorced who have entered a new union, for example, can find
themselves in a variety of situations, which should not be pigeonholed or fit into
overly rigid classifications leaving no room for a suitable personal and pastoral
discernment. One thing is a second union consolidated over time, with new children,
proven fidelity, generous self-giving, Christian commitment, a consciousness of its
irregularity and of the great difficulty of going back without feeling in conscience that
one would fall into new sins. The Church acknowledges situations “where, for serious
reasons, such as the children’s upbringing, a man and woman cannot satisfy the
obligation to separate [footnote 329: In such situations, many people, knowing and
accepting the possibility of living “as brothers and sisters” which the Church offers
them, point out that if certain expressions of intimacy are lacking, “it often happens
that faithfulness is endangered and the good of the children suffers”.] There are also
the cases of those who made every effort to save their first marriage and were unjustly
abandoned, or of “those who have entered into a second union for the sake of the
children’s upbringing, and are sometimes subjectively certain in conscience that their
previous and irreparably broken marriage had never been valid”. Another thing is a
new union arising from a recent divorce, with all the suffering and confusion which
this entails for children and entire families, or the case of someone who has
consistently failed in his obligations to the family. It must remain clear that this is not
the ideal which the Gospel proposes for marriage and the family. The Synod Fathers
stated that the discernment of pastors must always take place “by adequately
distinguishing”, with an approach which “carefully discerns situations”. We know that
no “easy recipes” exist.’
AL 299: ‘I am in agreement with the many Synod Fathers who observed that “the
baptized who are divorced and civilly remarried need to be more fully integrated into
Christian communities in the variety of ways possible, while avoiding any occasion of
© [all rights reserved]
scandal. The logic of integration is the key to their pastoral care, a care which would
allow them not only to realize that they belong to the Church as the body of Christ,
but also to know that they can have a joyful and fruitful experience in it. They are
baptized; they are brothers and sisters; the Holy Spirit pours into their hearts gifts and
talents for the good of all. … Such persons need to feel not as excommunicated
members of the Church, but instead as living members, able to live and grow in the
Church and experience her as a mother who welcomes them always, who takes care
of them with affection and encourages them along the path of life and the Gospel.”’
AL 300: ‘Since “the degree of responsibility is not equal in all cases”, the consequences
or effects of a rule need not necessarily always be the same. [footnote 336] This is also
the case with regard to sacramental discipline, since discernment can recognize that in
a particular situation no grave fault exists.’
AL 301: ‘It is [sic] can no longer simply be said that all those in any “irregular” situation
are living in a state of mortal sin and are deprived of sanctifying grace. More is
involved here than mere ignorance of the rule. A subject may know full well the rule,
yet have great difficulty in understanding “its inherent values, or be in a concrete
situation which does not allow him or her to act differently and decide otherwise
without further sin.”’
AL 303: ‘Conscience can do more than recognize that a given situation does not
correspond objectively to the overall demands of the Gospel. It can also recognize
with sincerity and honesty what for now is the most generous response which can be
given to God, and come to see with a certain moral security that it is what God himself
is asking amid the concrete complexity of one’s limits, while yet not fully the objective
AL 304: ‘I earnestly ask that we always recall a teaching of Saint Thomas Aquinas and
learn to incorporate it in our pastoral discernment: “Although there is necessity in the
general principles, the more we descend to matters of detail, the more frequently we
encounter defects… In matters of action, truth or practical rectitude is not the same
for all, as to matters of detail, but only as to the general principles; and where there is
the same rectitude in matters of detail, it is not equally known to all… The principle
will be found to fail, according as we descend further into detail”. It is true that general
rules set forth a good which can never be disregarded or neglected, but in their
formulation they cannot provide absolutely for all particular situations.’
AL 305: ‘Because of forms of conditioning and mitigating factors, it is possible that
in an objective situation of sin – which may not be subjectively culpable, or fully such
– a person can be living in God’s grace, can love and can also grow in the life of grace
and charity, while receiving the Church’s help to this end. [footnote 351: In certain
cases, this can include the help of the sacraments. Hence, “I want to remind priests
that the confessional must not be a torture chamber, but rather an encounter with the
Lord’s mercy. I would also point out that the Eucharist “is not a prize for the perfect,
but a powerful medicine and nourishment for the weak.”]’
AL 308: ‘I understand those who prefer a more rigorous pastoral care which leaves no
room for confusion. But I sincerely believe that Jesus wants a Church attentive to the
© [all rights reserved]
goodness which the Holy Spirit sows in the midst of human weakness, a Mother who,
while clearly expressing her objective teaching, “always does what good she can, even
if in the process, her shoes get soiled by the mud of the street”.’
AL 311: ‘The teaching of moral theology should not fail to incorporate these
The words, deeds and omissions of Your Holiness to which we wish to refer, and which in
conjunction with these passages of Amoris laetitia are serving to propagate heresies within the
Church, are the following:
– Your Holiness has refused to give a positive answer to the dubia submitted to you by Cardinals
Burke, Caffarra, Brandmüller, and Meisner, in which you were respectfully requested to confirm
that the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris laetitia does not abolish five teachings of the Catholic faith.
– Your Holiness intervened in the composition of the Relatio post disceptationem for the Extraordinary
Synod on the Family. The Relatio proposed allowing Communion for divorced-and-remarried
Catholics on a “case-by-case basis”, and said pastors should emphasize the “positive aspects” of
lifestyles the Church considers gravely sinful, including civil remarriage after divorce and premarital
cohabitation. These proposals were included in the Relatio at your personal insistence, despite the
fact that they did not receive the two-thirds majority required by the Synod rules for a proposal to
be included in the Relatio.
– In an interview in April 2016, a journalist asked Your Holiness if there are any concrete
possibilities for the divorced and remarried that did not exist before the publication of Amoris
laetitia. You replied ‘Io posso dire, si. Punto’; that is, ‘I can say yes. Period.’ Your Holiness then
stated that the reporter’s question was answered by the presentation given by Cardinal Schönborn
on Amoris laetitia. In this presentation Cardinal Schönborn stated:
My great joy as a result of this document resides in the fact that it coherently
overcomes that artificial, superficial, clear division between “regular” and “irregular”,
and subjects everyone to the common call of the Gospel, according to the words of St.
Paul: “For God has consigned all to disobedience, that He may have mercy on all”
(Rom. 11, 32). … what does the Pope say in relation to access to the sacraments for
people who live in “irregular” situations? Pope Benedict had already said that “easy
recipes” do not exist (AL 298, note 333). Pope Francis reiterates the need to discern
carefully the situation, in keeping with St. John Paul II’s Familiaris consortio (84) (AL
298). “Discernment must help to find possible ways of responding to God and
growing in the midst of limits. By thinking that everything is black and white, we
sometimes close off the way of grace and of growth, and discourage paths of
sanctification which give glory to God” (AL 205). He also reminds us of an important
phrase from Evangelii gaudium, 44: “A small step, in the midst of great human
limitations, can be more pleasing to God than a life which appears outwardly in order
© [all rights reserved]
but moves through the day without confronting great difficulties” (AL 304). In the
sense of this “via caritatis” (AL 306), the Pope affirms, in a humble and simple
manner, in a note (351) that the help of the sacraments may also be given “in certain
Your Holiness amplified this statement by asserting that Amoris laetitia endorses the approach to
the divorced and remarried that is practised in Cardinal Schönborn’s diocese, where they are
permitted to receive communion.
– On Sept. 5th 2016 the bishops of the Buenos Aires region issued a statement on the application
of Amoris laetitia. In it they stated:
6) En otras circunstancias más complejas, y cuando no se pudo obtener una
declaración de nulidad, la opción mencionada puede no ser de hecho factible. No
obstante, igualmente es posible un camino de discernimiento. Si se llega a reconocer
que, en un caso concreto, hay limitaciones que atenúan la responsabilidad y la
culpabilidad (cf. 301-302), particularmente cuando una persona considere que caería
en una ulterior falta dañando a los hijos de la nueva unión, Amoris laetítía abre la
posibilidad del acceso a los sacramentos de la Reconciliación y la Eucaristía (cf. notas
336 y 351). Estos a su vez disponen a la persona a seguir madurando y creciendo con
la fuerza de la gracia. …
9) Puede ser conveniente que un eventual acceso a los sacramentos se realice de
manera reservada, sobre todo cuando se prevean situaciones conflictivas. Pero al
mismo tiempo no hay que dejar de acompañar a la comunidad para que crezca en un
espíritu de comprensión y de acogida, sin que ello implique crear confusiones en la
enseñanza de la Iglesia acerca del matrimonio indisoluble. La comunidad es
instrumento de la misericordia que es «inmerecida, incondicional y gratuita» (297).
10) El discernimiento no se cierra, porque «es dinámico y debe permanecer siempre
abierto a nuevas etapas de crecimiento y a nuevas decisiones que permitan realizar el
ideal de manera más plena» (303), según la «ley de gradualidad» (295) y confiando en
la ayuda de la gracia.

[6) In other, more complex cases, and when a declaration of nullity has not been
obtained, the above mentioned option may not, in fact, be feasible. Nonetheless, a
path of discernment is still possible. If it comes to be recognized that, in a specific
case, there are limitations that mitigate responsibility and culpability (cf. 301-302),
especially when a person believes they would incur a subsequent wrong by harming
the children of the new union, Amoris laetitia offers the possibility of access to the
sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist (cf. footnotes 336 and 351). These
sacraments, in turn, dispose the person to continue maturing and growing with the
power of grace. …
9) It may be right for eventual access to sacraments to take place privately, especially
© [all rights reserved]
where situations of conflict might arise. But at the same time, we have to accompany
our communities in their growing understanding and welcome, without this implying
creating confusion about the teaching of the Church on the indissoluble marriage.
The community is an instrument of mercy, which is “unmerited, unconditional and
gratuitous” (297).
10) Discernment is not closed, because it “is dynamic; it must remain ever open to
new stages of growth and to new decisions which can enable the ideal to be more
fully realized” (303), according to the “law of gradualness” (295) and with confidence
in the help of grace.]
This asserts that according to Amoris laetitia confusion is not to be created about the teaching of
the Church on the indissolubility of marriage, that the divorced and remarried can receive the
sacraments, and that persisting in this state is compatible with receiving the help of grace. Your
Holiness wrote an official letter dated the same day to Bishop Sergio Alfredo Fenoy of San Miguel,
a delegate of the Argentina bishops’ Buenos Aires Region, stating that the bishops of the Buenos
Aires region had given the only possible interpretation of Amoris laetitia:
Querido hermano:
Recibí el escrito de la Región Pastoral Buenos Aires «Criterios básicos para la
aplicación del capítulo VIII de Amoris laetítia». Muchas gracias por habérmelo enviado;
y los felicito por el trabajo que se han tomado: un verdadero ejemplo de
acompañamiento a los sacerdotes… y todos sabemos cuánto es necesaria esta cercanía
del obíspo con su clero y del clero con el obispo . El prójimo «más prójimo» del obispo
es el sacerdote, y el mandamiento de amar al prójimo como a sí mismo comienza para
nosotros obispos precisamente con nuestros curas.
El escrito es muy bueno y explícita cabalmente el sentido del capitulo VIII de
Amoris Laetitia. No hay otras interpretaciones.
[Beloved brother,
I received the document from the Buenos Aires Pastoral Region, “Basic Criteria
for the Application of Chapter Eight of Amoris laetitia.” Thank you very much for
sending it to me. I thank you for the work they have done on this: a true example of
accompaniment for the priests … and we all know how necessary is this closeness of
the bishop with his clergy and the clergy with the bishop. The neighbor ‘closest’ to
the bishop is the priest, and the commandment to love one’s neighbor as one’s self
begins for us, the bishops, precisely with our priests. The document is very good and
completely explains the meaning of chapter VIII of Amoris laetitia. There are no other

for Life and grand chancellor of the Pontifical Pope John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage
and Family. As head of the Pontifical Council for the Family, Archbishop Paglia was responsible
for the publication of a book, Famiglia e Chiesa, un legame indissolubile (Libreria Editrice Vaticana,
2015), that contains the lectures given at three seminars promoted by that dicastery on the topics
of ‘Marriage: Faith, Sacrament, Discipline’; ‘Family, Conjugal Love and Generation’; and ‘The
Wounded Family and Irregular Unions: What Pastoral Attitude’. This book and the seminars it
described were intended to put forward proposals for the Synod on the Family, and promoted the
granting of communion to divorced and remarried Catholics.
– Guidelines for the diocese of Rome were issued under Your Holiness’s authority permitting the
reception of the Eucharist under certain circumstances by civilly divorced and remarried Catholics
living more uxorio with their civil partner.
– Your Holiness appointed Bishop Kevin Farrell as prefect of the newly established Dicastery for
Laity, Family and Life, and promoted him to the rank of cardinal. Cardinal Farrell has expressed
support for Cardinal Schönborn’s proposal that the divorced and remarried should receive
communion. He has stated that the reception of communion by the divorced and remarried is a
‘process of discernment and of conscience.’ 6
– On January 17th, 2017, the Osservatore Romano, the official journal of the Holy See, published the
guidelines issued by the archbishop of Malta and the bishop of Gozo for the reception of the
Eucharist by persons living in an adulterous relationship. These guidelines permitted the
sacrilegious reception of the Eucharist by some persons in this situation, and stated that in some
cases it is impossible for such persons to practise chastity and harmful for them to attempt to
practise chastity. No criticism of these guidelines was made by the Osservatore Romano, which
presented them as legitimate exercises of episcopal teaching and authority. This publication was
an official act of the Holy See that went uncorrected by yourself.

(3) “Christifidelis qui alicuius mandati divini plenam scientiam possidet et deliberata voluntate in
re gravi id violare eligit, non semper per talem actum graviter peccat.”
(4) “Homo potest, dum divinae prohibitioni obtemperat, contra Deum ea ipsa obtemperatione
(5) “Conscientia recte ac vere iudicare potest actus venereos aliquando probos et honestos esse
aut licite rogari posse aut etiam a Deo mandari, inter eos qui matrimonium civile contraxerunt
quamquam sponsus cum alia in matrimonio sacramentali iam coniunctus est.”
(6) “Principia moralia et veritas moralis quae in divina revelatione et in lege naturali continentur
non comprehendunt prohibitiones qualibus genera quaedam actionis absolute vetantur
utpote quae propter obiectum suum semper graviter illicita sint.”
(7) “Haec est voluntas Domini nostri Iesu Christi, ut Ecclesia disciplinam suam perantiquam
abiciat negandi Eucharistiam et Absolutionem iis qui, divortium civile consecuti et
matrimonium civile ingressi, contritionem et propositum firmum sese emendandi ab ea in
qua vivunt vitae conditione noluerunt patefacere.”7
These propositions all contradict truths that are divinely revealed, and that Catholics must believe
with the assent of divine faith. They were identified as heresies in the petition concerning Amoris
laetitia that was addressed by 45 Catholic scholars to the cardinals and Eastern patriarchs of the
Church.8 It is necessary for the good of souls that they be once more condemned by the authority
of the Church. In listing these seven propositions we do not intend to give an exhaustive list of
all the heresies and errors which an unbiased reader, attempting to read Amoris laetitia in its natural
and obvious sense, would plausibly take to be affirmed, suggested or favoured by this document:
a letter sent to all the cardinals of the Church and to the Eastern Catholic patriarchs lists 19 such
propositions. Rather, we seek to list the propositions which Your Holiness’s words, deeds and
omissions, as already described, have in effect upheld and propagated, to the great and imminent
danger of souls.
At this critical hour, therefore, we turn to the cathedra veritatis, the Roman Church, which has by
divine law pre-eminence over all the churches, and of which we are and intend always to remain
loyal children, and we respectfully insist that Your Holiness publicly reject these propositions, thus
accomplishing the mandate of our Lord Jesus Christ given to St Peter and through him to all his
successors until the end of the world: “I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and thou,
being once converted, confirm thy brethren.”
We respectfully ask for Your Holiness’s apostolic blessing, with the assurance of our filial devotion
in our Lord and of our prayer for the welfare of the Church.

In order to elucidate our Correctio, and to put forward a firmer defence against the spread of errors,
we wish to draw attention to two general sources of error which appear to us to be fostering the
heresies that we have listed. We speak, firstly, of that false understanding of divine revelation which
generally receives the name of Modernism, and secondly, of the teachings of Martin Luther.
A. The problem of Modernism
The Catholic understanding of divine revelation is frequently denied by contemporary theologians,
and this denial has led to widespread confusion among Catholics on the nature of divine revelation
and faith. In order to prevent any misunderstanding that might arise from this confusion, and to
justify our claim about the current propagation of heresies within the Church, we will describe the
Catholic understanding of divine revelation and faith, which is presumed in this document.
This description is also necessary in order to respond to the passages in Amoris laetitia where it is
asserted that the teachings of Christ and of the magisterium of the Church should be followed.
These passages include the following: “Unity of teaching and practice is certainly necessary in the
Church” (AL 3). “Faithful to Christ’s teaching we look to the reality of the family today in all its
complexity” (AL 32). “The teaching of the encyclical Humanae Vitae and the Apostolic
Exhortation Familiaris Consortio ought to be taken up anew” (AL 222). “The teaching of the Master
(cf. Mt 22:30) and Saint Paul (cf. 1 Cor 7:29-31) on marriage is set – and not by chance – in the
context of the ultimate and definitive dimension of our human existence. We urgently need to
rediscover the richness of this teaching” (AL 325). These passages might be seen as ensuring that
nothing in Amoris laetitia serves to propagate errors contrary to Catholic teaching. A description
of the true nature of adherence to Catholic teaching will clarify our assertion that Amoris laetitita
does indeed serve to propagate such errors.
We therefore ask Your Holiness to permit us to recall the following truths, which are taught by
Holy Scripture, Sacred Tradition, the universal consensus of the Fathers, and the magisterium of
the Church, and which summarise Catholic teaching on faith, divine revelation, infallible
magisterial teaching, and heresy:
1. The gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, whose historical character the Church
unhesitatingly asserts, faithfully hand on what Jesus Christ, while living among men,
really did and taught for their eternal salvation until the day He was taken up into
2. Jesus Christ is true God and true man. In consequence, all his teachings are the
teachings of God Himself.10
3. All the propositions that are contained in the Catholic faith are truths communicated
© [all rights reserved]
by God.11
4. In believing these truths with an assent that is an act of the theological virtue of faith,
we are believing the testimony of a speaker. The act of divine faith is a particular form
of the general intellectual activity of believing a proposition because a speaker asserts
it, and because the speaker is held to be honest and knowledgeable with respect to the
assertion he is making. In an act of divine faith, God is believed when he says
something, and he is believed because he is God and hence is knowledgeable and
5. Belief in divine testimony differs from belief in the testimony of human beings who
are not divine, because God is all-knowing and perfectly good. In consequence, he can
neither lie nor be deceived. It is thus impossible for divine testimony to be mistaken.
Because the truths of the Catholic faith are communicated to us by God, the assent
of faith that is given to them is most certain. A Catholic believer cannot have rational
grounds for doubting or disbelieving any of these truths.13
6. Human reason by itself can establish the truth of the Catholic faith based on the
publicly available evidence for the divine origin of the Catholic Church, but such
reasoning cannot produce an act of faith. The theological virtue of faith and the act
of faith can only be produced by divine grace. A person who has this virtue but then
freely and knowingly chooses to disbelieve a truth of the Catholic faith sins mortally
and loses eternal life.14
7. The truth of a proposition consists in its saying of what is, that it is; scholastically
expressed, it consists in adaequatio rei et intellectus. Every truth is as such true, no matter
by whom or when or in what circumstances it is considered. No truth can contradict
any other truth.15
8. The Catholic faith does not exhaust all the truth about God, because only the divine
intellect can fully comprehend the divine being. Nonetheless every truth of the
Catholic faith is entirely and completely true, in that the features of reality that such a
truth describes are exactly as these truths present them to be. There is no difference
between the content of the teachings of the faith and how things are.16
9. The divine speech that communicates the truths of the Catholic faith is expressed in
human languages. The inspired Hebrew and Greek text of the Holy Scriptures is itself
uttered by God in all of its parts. It is not a purely human report or interpretation of
divine revelation, and no part of its meaning is due solely to human causes. In believing
the teaching of the Holy Scriptures we are believing God directly. We are not believing
the statements made by God on the basis of believing the testimony of some other,
non-divine person or persons.17
10. When the Catholic Church infallibly teaches that a proposition is a divinely revealed
part of the Catholic faith and is to be believed with the assent of faith, Catholics who
assent to this teaching are believing what God has communicated, and are believing it
on account of His having said it.18
11. The languages in which divine revelation is expressed, and the cultures and histories
that shaped these languages, do not constrain, distort, or add to the divine revelation
© [all rights reserved]
that is expressed in them. No part or aspect of the Holy Scriptures or of the infallible
teaching of the Church concerning the content of divine revelation is produced only
by the languages and historical conditions in which they are expressed, but not by
God’s action in communicating truths. Hence, no part of the content of the teaching
of the Church can be revised or rejected on the grounds that it is produced by historical
circumstances rather than by divine revelation.19
12. The magisterial teaching of the Church after the death of the last apostle must be
understood and believed as a single whole. It is not divided into a past magisterium
and a contemporary or living magisterium that can ignore earlier magisterial teaching
or revise it at will.20
13. The Pope, who has the supreme authority in the Church, is not himself exempt from
the authority of the Church, in accordance with divine and ecclesiastical law. He is
bound to accept and uphold the definitive teaching of his predecessors in the papal
14. A heretical proposition is a proposition that contradicts a divinely revealed truth that
is included in the Catholic faith.22
15. The sin of heresy is committed by a person who possesses the theological virtue of
faith, but then freely and knowingly chooses to disbelieve or doubt a truth of the
Catholic faith. Such a person sins mortally and loses eternal life. The judgement of the
Church upon the personal sin of heresy is exercised only by a priest in the sacrament
of penance.23
16. The canonical crime of heresy is committed when a Catholic a) publicly doubts or
denies one or more truths of the Catholic faith, or publicly refuses to give assent to
one or more truths of the Catholic faith, but does not doubt or deny all these truths
or deny the existence of Christian revelation, and b) is pertinacious in this denial.
Pertinacity consists in the person in question continuing to publicly doubt or deny one
or more truths of the Catholic faith after having been warned by competent
ecclesiastical authority that his doubt or denial is a rejection of a truth of the faith, and
that this doubt or denial must be renounced and the truth in question must be publicly
affirmed as divinely revealed by the person being warned.24
(The above descriptions of the personal sin of heresy and of the canonical crime of heresy are
given solely in order to be able to exclude them from the subject of our protest. We are only
concerned with heretical propositions propagated by the words, deeds and omissions of Your
Holiness. We do not have the competence or the intention to address the canonical issue of heresy.)
B. The influence of Martin Luther
In the second place, we feel compelled by conscience to advert to Your Holiness’s unprecedented
sympathy for Martin Luther, and to the affinity between Luther’s ideas on law, justification, and
marriage, and those taught or favoured by Your Holiness in Amoris laetitia and elsewhere.25 This is
© [all rights reserved]
necessary in order that our protest against the seven heretical propositions listed in this document
may be complete; we wish to show, albeit in summary form, that these are not unrelated errors,
but rather form part of a heretical system. Catholics need to be warned not only against these
seven errors, but also against this heretical system as such, not least by reason of Your Holiness’s
praise of the man who originated it.
Thus, in a press conference on June 26th, 2016, Your Holiness stated:
I think that Martin Luther’s intentions were not mistaken; he was a reformer.
Perhaps some of his methods were not right, although at that time, if you read
Pastor’s history, for example – Pastor was a German Lutheran who experienced a
conversion when he studied the facts of that period; he became a Catholic – we see
that the Church was not exactly a model to emulate. There was corruption and
worldliness in the Church; there was attachment to money and power. That was the
basis of his protest. He was also intelligent, and he went ahead, justifying his reasons
for it. Nowadays, Lutherans and Catholics, and all Protestants, are in agreement on
the doctrine of justification: on this very important point he was not mistaken.26
In a homily in the Lutheran Cathedral in Lund, Sweden, on Oct 31st, 2016, Your Holiness stated:
As Catholics and Lutherans, we have undertaken a common journey of
reconciliation. Now, in the context of the commemoration of the Reformation of
1517, we have a new opportunity to accept a common path, one that has taken
shape over the past fifty years in the ecumenical dialogue between the Lutheran
World Federation and the Catholic Church. Nor can we be resigned to the division
and distance that our separation has created between us. We have the opportunity
to mend a critical moment of our history by moving beyond the controversies and
disagreements that have often prevented us from understanding one another.
Jesus tells us that the Father is the “vinedresser” (cf. v. 1) who tends and prunes the
vine in order to make it bear more fruit (cf. v. 2). The Father is constantly concerned
for our relationship with Jesus, to see if we are truly one with him (cf. v. 4). He
watches over us, and his gaze of love inspires us to purify our past and to work in
the present to bring about the future of unity that he so greatly desires.
We too must look with love and honesty at our past, recognizing error and seeking
forgiveness, for God alone is our judge. We ought to recognize with the same
honesty and love that our division distanced us from the primordial intuition of
God’s people, who naturally yearn to be one, and that it was perpetuated historically
by the powerful of this world rather than the faithful people, which always and
everywhere needs to be guided surely and lovingly by its Good Shepherd. Certainly,
there was a sincere will on the part of both sides to profess and uphold the true
© [all rights reserved]
faith, but at the same time we realize that we closed in on ourselves out of fear or
bias with regard to the faith which others profess with a different accent and
The spiritual experience of Martin Luther challenges us to remember that apart
from God we can do nothing. “How can I get a propitious God?” This is the
question that haunted Luther. In effect, the question of a just relationship with
God is the decisive question for our lives. As we know, Luther encountered that
propitious God in the Good News of Jesus, incarnate, dead and risen. With the
concept “by grace alone”, he reminds us that God always takes the initiative, prior to
any human response, even as he seeks to awaken that response. The doctrine of
justification thus expresses the essence of human existence before God.27
In addition to stating that Martin Luther was correct about justification, and in close accordance
with this view, Your Holiness has declared more than once that our sins are the place where we
encounter Christ (as in your homilies of September 4th, and September 18th, 2014), justifying this
view with St Paul, who in fact glories in his own “infirmities” (“astheneìais”, cf. 2 Cor. 12:5, 9) and
not in his sins, so that the power of Christ may dwell in him.28 In an address to members of
Communion and Liberation on March 7th, 2015 Your Holiness said:
The privileged place of encounter is the caress of Jesus’ mercy regarding my sin.
This is why you may have heard me say, several times, that the place for this, the
privileged place of the encounter with Jesus Christ is my sin. 29
Furthermore, in addition to other propositions of Amoris laetitia which have been listed in the letter
sent to all the cardinals and Eastern Catholic patriarchs, and which have been therein qualified as
heretical, erroneous, or ambiguous, we read also this:
We should not however confuse different levels: there is no need to lay upon two
limited persons the tremendous burden of having to reproduce perfectly the union
existing between Christ and his Church, for marriage as a sign entails ‘a dynamic
process…, one which advances gradually with the progressive integration of the
gifts of God’ (AL 122).
While it is true that the sacramental sign of matrimony entails a dynamic process toward holiness,
it is beyond doubt that by the sacramental sign the union of Christ with his Church is perfectly
reproduced by grace in the married couple. It is not a question of imposing a tremendous burden
on two limited persons, but rather of acknowledging the work of the sacrament and of grace (res
et sacramentum).

Surprisingly we notice here, as in several other parts of this Apostolic Exhortation, a close
relationship with Luther’s disparagement of marriage. For the German revolutionary, the Catholic
conception of a sacrament as effective ex opere operato, in an allegedly ‘mechanical’ way, is
unacceptable. Although he maintains the distinction of signum et res, after 1520, with The Babylonian
Captivity of the Church, he no longer applies it to marriage. Luther denies that marriage has any
reference to sacramentality, on the grounds that we nowhere read in the Bible that the man who
marries a woman receives a grace of God, and that neither do we read anywhere that marriage was
instituted by God to be a sign of anything. He claimed that marriage is a mere symbol, adding that
although it can represent the union of Christ with the Church, such figures and allegories are not
sacraments in the sense we use the term (cf. Luther’s Works {LW} 36:92). For this reason, marriage
– whose fundamental aim is to conceive children and to raise them up in the ways of God (cf. LW
44:11-12) – according to Luther belongs to the order of creation and not to that of salvation (cf.
LW 45:18); it is given only in order to quench the fire of concupiscence, and as a bulwark against
sin (cf. LW 3, Gen. 16:4).
Moreover, beginning with his personal vision about how human nature is corrupted by sin, Luther
is conscious that man is not always anxious to respect God’s law. Therefore, he is convinced that
there is a double manner by which God rules over mankind, to which corresponds a double moral
vision about marriage and divorce. Thus divorce is generally admitted by Luther in the case of
adultery, but only for non-spiritual people.
His reasoning is that there are two forms of divine government in this world: the spiritual and the
temporal. By his spiritual government, the Holy Spirit leads Christians and righteous people under
the Gospel of Christ; by his temporal government, God restrains non-Christians and the wicked
in order to maintain an outward peace (cf. LW 45:91). Two also are the laws regulating moral life:
one is spiritual, for those living under the influence of the Holy Spirit, the other is temporal or
worldly, for those who cannot comply with the spiritual one (cf. LW 45:88-93). This double moral
vision is applied by Luther to adultery in reference to Mt 5:32: hence, Christians must not divorce
even in the case of adultery (the spiritual law); but divorce exists and was granted by Moses because
of sin (the worldly law). The permission to divorce is thus seen as a limit put by God upon carnal
people to restrain their misbehaviour and prevent them from doing worse on account of their
wickedness (cf. LW 45:31).
How can we not see here a close similarity with what has been suggested by Your Holiness in
Amoris laetitia? On the one hand marriage is supposedly safeguarded as a sacrament, while on the
other hand divorce and remarriage are regarded ‘mercifully’ as a status quo to be – although only
‘pastorally’ – integrated into the life of the Church, thus openly contradicting the word of our
Lord. Luther was led to an acceptance of re-marriage by his identification of concupiscence with
sin; for he recognized marriage as a remedy for concupiscence. In reality, concupiscence is not as
such sinful, just as re-marriage when one has a living spouse is not a status, but a privation of truth.

However, Luther’s self-contradiction, generated by his two-fold view of marriage – itself seen as
something that pertains properly to the Law and not to the Gospel – is then supposedly overcome
by the precedence of faith: a “cordial trust” in order to adhere subjectively to God. He claims that
faith justifies man insofar as the punishing justice withdraws into mercy and is changed
permanently into forgiving love. This is made possible out of a “joyful bargain” (fröhlicher Wechseln)
by which the sinner can say to Christ: “You are my righteousness just as I am your sin” (LW 48:12;
cf. also 31:351; 25:188). By this “happy exchange”, Christ becomes the only sinner and we are
justified through the acceptance of the Word in faith.
In Your pilgrimage to Fatima for the beginning of this providential centenary, Your Holiness
clearly alluded to this Lutheran view about faith and justification, stating on May 12th, 2017:
Great injustice is done to God’s grace whenever we say that sins are punished by
his judgment, without first saying – as the Gospel clearly does – that they are
forgiven by his mercy! Mercy has to be put before judgment and, in any case, God’s
judgment will always be rendered in the light of his mercy. Obviously, God’s mercy
does not deny justice, for Jesus took upon himself the consequences of our sin,
together with its due punishment. He did not deny sin, but redeemed it on the
cross. Hence, in the faith that unites us to the cross of Christ, we are freed of our
sins; we put aside all fear and dread, as unbefitting those who are loved (cf. 1
Jn. 4:18).30
The gospel does not teach that all sins will in fact be forgiven, nor that Christ alone experienced
the ‘judgement’ or justice of God, leaving only mercy for the rest of mankind. While there is a
‘vicarious suffering’ of our Lord in order to expiate our sins, there is not a ‘vicarious punishment’,
for Christ was made “sin for us” (cf. 2 Cor. 5:21) and not a sinner. Out of divine love, and not as
the object of God’s wrath, Christ offered the supreme sacrifice of salvation to reconcile us with
God, taking upon himself only the consequences of our sins (cf. Gal. 3:13). Hence, so that we
may be justified and saved, it is not sufficient to have faith that our sins have been removed by a
supposed vicarious punishment; our justification lies in a conformity to our Saviour achieved by
that faith which works through charity (cf. Gal. 5:6).
Most Holy Father, permit us also to express our wonderment and sorrow at two events occurring
in the heart of the Church, which likewise suggest the favour in which the German heresiarch is
held under Your pontificate. On January 15th, 2016, a group of Finnish Lutherans were granted
Holy Communion in the course of a celebration of Holy Mass that took place at St Peter’s basilica.
On 13th October, 2016, Your Holiness presided over a meeting of Catholics and Lutherans in the
Vatican, addressing them from a stage on which a statue of Martin Luther was erected.

3 This section therefore contains the Correctio properly speaking, and is that to which the signatories intend
principally and directly to subscribe.
7 By these words, deeds, and omissions, and by the above-mentioned passages of the document Amoris
laetitia, Your Holiness has upheld, directly or indirectly, and, with what degree of awareness we do not seek
to judge, both by public office and by private act propagated in the Church the following false and heretical
1). ‘A justified person has not the strength with God’s grace to carry out the objective demands of the
divine law, as though any of the commandments of God are impossible for the justified; or as meaning
that God’s grace, when it produces justification in an individual, does not invariably and of its nature
produce conversion from all serious sin, or is not sufficient for conversion from all serious sin.’
2). ‘Christians who have obtained a civil divorce from the spouse to whom they are validly married and have
contracted a civil marriage with some other person during the lifetime of their spouse, who live more uxorio
with their civil partner, and who choose to remain in this state with full knowledge of the nature of their
act and full consent of the will to that act, are not necessarily in a state of mortal sin, and can receive
sanctifying grace and grow in charity.’
3). ‘A Christian believer can have full knowledge of a divine law and voluntarily choose to break it in a
serious matter, but not be in a state of mortal sin as a result of this action.’
4). ‘A person is able, while he obeys a divine prohibition, to sin against God by that very act of obedience.’
5). ‘Conscience can truly and rightly judge that sexual acts between persons who have contracted a civil
marriage with each other, although one or both of them is sacramentally married to another person, can
sometimes be morally right or requested or even commanded by God.’
6). ‘Moral principles and moral truths contained in divine revelation and in the natural law do not include
negative prohibitions that absolutely forbid particular kinds of action, inasmuch as these are always gravely
unlawful on account of their object.’
7). ‘Our Lord Jesus Christ wills that the Church abandon her perennial discipline of refusing the Eucharist
to the divorced and remarried and of refusing absolution to the divorced and remarried who do not express
contrition for their state of life and a firm purpose of amendment with regard to it.’

Familiaris consortio, 84: “Reconciliation in the sacrament of Penance, which would open the way to the
Eucharist, can only be granted to those who, repenting of having broken the sign of the Covenant and of
fidelity to Christ, are sincerely ready to undertake a way of life that is no longer in contradiction to the
indissolubility of marriage. This means, in practice, that when, for serious reasons, such as for example the
children’s upbringing, a man and a woman cannot satisfy the obligation to separate, they ‘take on themselves
the duty to live in complete continence, that is, by abstinence from the acts proper to married couples’.”
2nd Lateran Council, canon 20, DH 717: “Because there is one thing that conspicuously causes great
disturbance to holy Church, namely false penance, we warn our brothers in the episcopate, and priests, not
to allow the souls of the laity to be deceived or dragged off to hell by false penances. It is certain that a
penance is false when many sins are disregarded and a penance is performed for one only, or when it is
done for one sin in such a way that the penitent does not renounce another”.

Christ, afterwards they themselves and apostolic men, under the inspiration of the divine Spirit, handed on
to us in writing: the foundation of faith, namely, the fourfold Gospel, according to Matthew, Mark, Luke
and John. Holy Mother Church has firmly and with absolute constancy held, and continues to hold, that
the four Gospels just named, whose historical character the Church unhesitatingly asserts, faithfully hand
on what Jesus Christ, while living among men, really did and taught for their eternal salvation until the day
He was taken up into heaven.”

therefore, the Word made flesh, was sent as “a man to men’. He ‘speaks the words of God’.”

and that nothing is more suitable to reason itself than to acquiesce and firmly adhere to what it has
determined to be revealed by God, who can neither deceive nor be deceived?”
1st Vatican Council, Dei Filius, cap. 3: “Faith, which is the beginning of human salvation, the Catholic
Church professes to be a supernatural virtue, by means of which, with the grace of God inspiring and
assisting us, we believe to be true what He has revealed, not because we perceive its intrinsic truth by the
natural light of reason, but because of the authority of God himself, who makes the revelation and can
neither deceive nor be deceived.”
1st Vatican Council, Dei Filius, cap. 3, can. 6: “If anyone says that the condition of the faithful and those
who have not yet attained to the only true faith is alike, so that Catholics may have a just cause for calling
in doubt, by suspending their assent, the faith which they have already received from the teaching of the
Church, until they have completed a scientific demonstration of the credibility and truth of their faith: let
him be anathema.”

1st Vatican Council, Dei Filius, cap. 3: “In order that the submission of our faith should be in harmony with
reason, it was God’s will that there should be linked to the internal assistance of the Holy Spirit external
indications of his revelation, that is to say divine acts, and first and foremost miracles and prophecies, which
clearly demonstrating as they do the omnipotence and infinite knowledge of God, are most certain signs of
revelation and are suited to the understanding of all people. Hence Moses and the prophets, and especially
Christ our Lord himself, worked many manifest miracles and delivered prophecies […] So that we could
fulfil our duty of embracing the true faith and of persevering unwaveringly in it, God, through his only
begotten Son, founded the Church, and endowed her with clear notes of his institution to the end that she
might be recognised by all as the guardian and teacher of the revealed word. To the Catholic Church alone
belong all those things, so many and so marvellous, which have been divinely ordained to make for the
manifest credibility of the Christian faith.”
1st Vatican Council, Dei Filius, cap. 3: “Although the assent of faith is by no means a blind movement of
the mind, yet no one can accept the gospel preaching in the way that is necessary for achieving salvation
without the inspiration and illumination of the Holy Spirit, who gives to all facility in accepting and believing
the truth. And so faith in itself, even if it does not work through charity, is a gift of God, and its operation
is a work belonging to the order of salvation.”

by his Spirit.”

Pius XII, Humani generis, DH 3882-83: “Some hold that the mysteries of faith are never expressed by truly
adequate concepts but only by approximate and ever changeable notions, in which the truth is to some
extent expressed, but is necessarily distorted. Wherefore they do not consider it absurd, but altogether
necessary, that theology should substitute new concepts in place of the old ones in keeping with the various
philosophies which in the course of time it uses as its instruments, so that it should give human expression
to divine truths in various ways which are even somewhat opposed, but still equivalent, as they say. […] It
is evident from what We have already said, that such efforts not only lead to what they call dogmatic
relativism, but that they actually contain it.”

“As for the meaning of dogmatic formulas, this remains ever true and constant in the Church, even when
it comes to be expressed with greater clarity and to be more fully understood. The faithful therefore must
shun the opinion, first, that dogmatic formulations, or some category of them, cannot signify the truth in
a determinate way, but can only offer changeable approximations to it, which to a certain extent distort or
alter it; and secondly, that these formulations only express the truth in an indeterminate way, and that one
must continue to seek this truth by further approximations of this kind.”

Pius XII, Divino afflante Spiritu AAS 35 (1943): 299-300: “It is absolutely wrong and forbidden ‘either to
narrow inspiration to certain passages of Holy Scripture, or to admit that the sacred writer has erred,’ since
divine inspiration ‘not only is essentially incompatible with error but excludes and rejects it as absolutely

and necessarily as it is impossible that God Himself, the supreme Truth, can utter that which is not true.
This is the ancient and constant faith of the Church.’ This teaching, which Our Predecessor Leo XIII set
forth with such solemnity, We also proclaim with Our authority.”
2nd Vatican Council, Dei verbum, 11: “Holy mother Church, relying on the belief of the Apostles, holds that
the books of both the Old and New Testaments in their entirety, with all their parts, are sacred and canonical
because written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, they have God as their author and have been
handed on as such to the Church herself. In composing the sacred books, God chose men, and while
employed by Him they made use of their powers and abilities, so that with Him acting in them and through
them, they, as true authors, consigned to writing all and only those things which He wanted.”

19 Pius XII, Humani generis, DH 3883: “The Church cannot be tied to any and every passing philosophical
system. Nevertheless, those notions and terms which have been developed though common effort by
Catholic teachers over the course of the centuries to bring about some understanding of dogma are
certainly not based on any such weak foundation. They are based on principles and notions deduced from
a true knowledge of created things. In the process of deduction, this knowledge, like a star, gave
enlightenment to the human mind through the Church. Hence it is not surprising that some of these
notions have not only been employed by the Ecumenical Councils, but even sanctioned by them, so that it
is wicked to depart from them.”
Paul VI, Declaration Mysterium Ecclesiae of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, 5, DH 4540:

John Paul II, Fides et Ratio, 87: “One must remember that even if the statement of a truth is limited to some
extent by times and by forms of culture, the truth or the error with which it deals can nevertheless be
recognised and evaluated as such, however great the distance of space or time.”
John Paul II, Fides et Ratio, 95: “The word of God is not addressed to any one people or to any one period
of history. Similarly, dogmatic statements, while reflecting at times the culture of the period in which they
were defined, formulate an unchanging and ultimate truth.”

to another, different from the meaning which the Church held previously. I also condemn every error that

so that they might, by his revelation, make known some new doctrine, but that, by his assistance, they might
religiously guard and faithfully expound the revelation or deposit of faith transmitted by the apostles. […]
This gift of truth and never-failing faith was therefore divinely conferred on Peter and his successors in this

of heavenly doctrine.”

written or handed on, has been entrusted exclusively to the living magisterium of the Church, whose
authority is exercised in the name of Jesus Christ. This magisterium is not above the word of God, but
serves it. It teaches only what has been handed on, listening to it devoutly, guarding it scrupulously and
explaining it faithfully in accord with a divine commission and with the help of the Holy Spirit. It draws
from this one deposit of faith everything which it presents for belief as divinely revealed.”

ISIS now defeated – what’s next? Best 9/11 Mossad/ Greater Is R Hell Goy World Domination by Fed Expose yet!

ISIS now defeated – what’s next?

Now that the Khazarian Mafia has failed with ISIS, what will they try next?

These ISIS boys look like a rowdy bunch, hiding behind religion to be street gangsters

by  Preston James

ISIS has been the secret mercenary army of the World Zionists through their cutouts Israel, Saudi Arabia, the CIA and the Pentagon. ISIS has now been defeated by Assad’s army and Russian Federation precision air power. This is the biggest defeat for the CIA since the bay of Pigs fiasco and Israel’s biggest setback ever.

To say that the Likudists are more upset than any other time in history would be an accurate statement. Their whole world is now crashing in on them ever since Alan Sabrosky, Ph.D. a well respected professor at the War College went public that the Mossad ran the attack on America on 9-11-01.

And Steve Pieczenik a well known and respected former Deputy Secretary of State and high ranking Intel official also disclosed that 9-11-01 was an inside job and named the actual stateside perps who were PNACers, top NeoCons and Israeli-America “dual citizens”.

Most Americans have no idea that it is the same world’s largest organized crime cabal who created, armed, and paid ISIS that also planned and executed the attack on America on 9-11-01, the World Zionists, also known as the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia (RKM).

Yes, it was the World Zionists led by the Israelis and assisted by the CIA, the Pentagon, and the Saudis who created, trained, supplied, deployed, and paid ISIS, ISIL, Daesh (best referred to as ISIS et al).

These mercenary army groups ISIS, ISIL, Daesh, etc. are all extensions of the same private world Zionist force. Top generals and officers in the US Military, the Pentagon and CIA know that ISIS is an extension of the Mujaheddin just as MS-13 is an extension of the Contras. The CIA and Pentagon go along with this creation and support for ISIS et al because they have been deeply infiltrated and hijacked by Dual citizens whose first allegiance is to Israel and the “Greater Israel Plan”.

American traitors who assisted creating ISIS et all have been described as PNACers, top NeoCons and Israeli-American “Israeli-first” Dual Citizens who helped Israel attack America on 9-11-01. This attack was a classical false-flag attack designed to blame the well planned and executed attack on Afghanistan and Osama bin Laden.

We now know for certain and have indisputable evidence that Afghanistan had no part in the attack on America on 9-11-01 and that Osama bin Laden nor other Mideast nation did either except for Israel.

Bin Laden was a Saudi from a wealthy construction family was actually a high ranking CIA man whose trade-craft name was Colonel Tim Osman. Colonel Osman was seen going in and out of the Pentagon numerous times in the months before the 9-11-01 attack. He suffered from Marfan’s, a genetic disorder that President Lincoln had. This is a fatal disorder marked by being tall (over 6 feet) and developing Kidney failure, the usual cause of death.

After the attack on America, Osama bin Laden was shocked that the Pentagon and the US Administration turned on him and set him up as a “Lee Harvey Oswald” type patsy to blame as the master planner.  He publicly denied having any part in 9-11-01, but few major media  outside the Mideast Islamic nations carried this.

Almost immediately the CIA put out an order to assassinate Colonel Ossman in order to tie up a major loose ends. Either he died of Kidney failure or was killed by USAF bombs while hiding inside a cave. Either way his death was announced in several Mideast newspapers and he was buried in an unmarked grave as is Islamic custom.

And yet the Pentagon continued the hunt for him even though they knew he was dead. After all they needed to continue pushing this false narrative in the Major Mass media in order to keep the American public and the soldiers being used as cannon fodder bamboozled.

Later this nonsensical mad hunt for an already dead Colonel Ossman ended up using Navy Seals to assassinate of one of his doubles. Sadly this was followed by two sets of murders of all the Navy Seals involved so they could not talk, now known to most other Navy Seals.

Special ops and spooky teams are now betrayed as standard operating procedure.

It is very dangerous to do these “spooky team type” special ops because in most cases those involved will end up being “sanctioned” by the CIA in order to tie up loose ends. This was done to 11 of the 12 spooky teams in South America who were good men murdered by the CIA by planting explosives in the radios and ordering them to gather close for their orders. Only one team failed to do this and escaped South America alive. One wrote a book about it.

Many covert operators and special ops in general are beginning to catch on and no longer trust their superiors at all. This is a growing distrust that could easily turn into several serious coup d’etats and /or major leaks of some of the most sensitive Intel secret imaginable.

This 9-11-01 false-flag attack on America, according to its planners at PNAC and within the Likudists was directed by Netanyahu. The attack was felt necessary to activate the PNAC plan as a stepping stone to attaining the “Greater Israel Plan”. It was believed that a Pearl harbor type attack on America with at least 2500 dead was necessary to transform the Pentagon war machine into the direct military agent of Israel in the Mideast.

The rest is history.

It’s taken almost 16 years for all the truth to come out that Israel and the Mossad planned and ran the 9-11-01 attack on America with stand-down assistance by the Pentagon, USAF, FAA, NORTHCOM, and the administration.

It’s a sad fact that the PNACers and top NeoCons were involved in planning 9-11-01. They worked hand in hand with the Mossad and when the NYCPD Officers arrested the Dancing Israelis with bombs they were going to blow up the George Washington Bridge with, these agents of espionage were released and the records locked down under national security.

But they believe that this strategy is necessary to contain Russia which they have been mind-kontrolled to see as a continuing threat even though the cold war ended in 1990 and the Berlin wall and the Iron curtain came down.

But what is the root motivation behind this Zionist obsession to terrorize the world with false-flag terror, and by continuing perpetual wars in the Mideast that have already murdered millions and wounded and disabled thousands of good American soldiers who were sacrificed for World  Zionism?

The perps motivation for creating hell on Earth in the Mideast and everywhere else they infiltrate and hijack is the “Greater Israel Plan”.

The Greater Israel Plan is a concoction of the non-Hebrew Khazarian Zionists and is the root motivation behind 9-11-01 and all the false-flag terror in America, Europe and the world since the end of World War II.

It’s called the Greater Israel Plan and is known to be the secret wet dream of the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia, also known as the World Zionists, “moneychangers”, international City of London pernicious usury debt-based FIAT Banksters. The actual leaders of this occult network are known to insiders as Baal worshipers who practice Ancient Babylonian Talmudic rites that include child sacrifice and pedophilia.

Their obsession with attaining their Greater Israel Plan in the Mideast and then taking to the whole world by Globalizing it and then running a NWO one-world government was the motivation for the World Zionists attack on America on 9-11-01. It was also their motivation for creating, training, arming, paying ISIS, ISIL, Daesh and the rest of these so-called Islamic State Army forces which many believe were called ISIS to represent Israeli Secret Intelligence Services.

The vehicle for the World Zionists (more accurately Sionists, as in Priory of Sion) has been to deploy all their numerous false-flag terror attacks all over the world. Note that these are various types of Gladio operations of the Nazi “left behind army” which was secretly started by the World Zionists in the first place like Nazism. Others have called this left behind army that typically works out of NATO as the DVD, such as author and Intel insider Michael Shrimpton.

World Zionists are the main force behind Globalism and have used their City of London Rothschild Khazarian Mafia private FIAT Banking system to infiltrate and hijack almost all banking in the world. That is until recent efforts of Russia, China and the BRICS nations attempts to set up their own reserve currency system without the US Petro Dollar.

How could the Zionists have anything to do with the Nazi left behind army stationed inside NATO when they claim to be so anti-Nazi? This seems counterintuitive. But on deep examination it does make sense because both Nazism, Israeli Zionism as well as Soviet Communism and Maoism were all started  by the same folks who run World Zionism. And the Mossad in fact formed a working partnership with Nazis in South America to share ion the massive trafficking of illegal narcotics, along with the CIA (all equal partners in crime).

The very top leaders of this whole evil World Zionist hierarchy are known to insiders as the several top Old Black European Nobility. They hide in the shadows and pull the strings of the Jesuit Superior General who runs the Vatican/COL/DC complex.

The Vatican/COL/DC complex is comprised of three very small three independent nation-states that run the world right now. They have their own diplomats and often work in secret through the various mystery religions and occult circles including a worldwide satanic pedophile network and High Freemasonry which they hijacked.

Israel, the Likudists, and the Mossad are major action-agents for the World Zionists and have been assisted by American traitors such as Israel-American “Israeli-first” Dual Citizens who are called PNACers and Top NeoCons.

Now with the defeat of ISIS et al, what’s next on the World Zionist’s agenda?

Now that the World Zionist mercenary Army of the Israelis, the CIA and the Saudis has been crushed by Assad’s military and by their strong ally the Russian Federation and Russian precision Air Power, what is next for the World Zionists and their action agents in their quest to create Greater Israel followed by a Globalist NWO one-world government run by them?

Adept researchers now understand that this Greater Israel Plan of the World Zionist is nothing less than an inter-generational commitment by Babylonian Talmudics to establish a Globalist NWO pure satanic one-world government with a takeover of the whole Mideast just one step along the way.

According to reliable and direct reports by insiders, these top World Zionists are pedophile satanists and practice secret occult Black arts which include child pedophilia and child sacrifice. Sometime they participate in blood drinking and cannibalism too as a part of their satanic rituals they believe are necessary to obtain more anointing, more power, riches and status from Satan.

One part of the Samson option is to create Hell on Earth for any nation that bucks Israel’s “Greater Israel Plan”, e.g. supporting Palestinian freedom and the end of Israeli genocide of Palestinians and massive land theft of Palestinian land.

The transport of war displaced immigrants to Europe and the mind-kontrol of European nations’ leaders is the new tactic of these World Zionists to punish EU nations for not supporting the Greater Israel Plan and for recent major efforts to establish Palestine as a legitimate independent nation.

When the Europeans started adopting the Boycott, Divest, Sanction movement (BDS) the World Zionists came up this this new strategy. It is based on this kind of thinking:

“Oh, you like Islamics so much because you won’t help us eradicate them and take over the Mideast so we can establish our Greater Israel in the Mideast and then take over the whole world after that. Therefore, we are going to help you understand how these Islamics are enemies of your various nations and cultures. We are going to flood you with the worst of them and mind-kontrol them to rape, riot and destroy your nations. And we will also mind-kontrol your leaders using the same advanced psychotronics to believe that Islamic culture and law is superior to their own.”

This is likely just one variety of the Israeli Samson Plan to take everyone down if they feel their Greater Israel Plan is thwarted, especially those nations who support the Palestinians and who have had a Christian and Deist national heritage.


These World Zionists are not likely to abandon their main agenda to establish the Greater Israel Globalist one-world NWO pure Babylonian Talmudic (satanic) world government. So now that their ISIS et al mercenary army has been defeated, they have shifted gears to a higher order Gladio operations. they have done this by transportation of Mideast immigrants to Europe from the very chaotic war torn nations destroyed by ISIS et all and mind-kontrolling them to rape and pillage.

And they are using massive immigration into America, both legal and illegal, to destroy American borders, language, and culture and the economy, all done to Globalize America and bring it into their NWO one-world Government System.

Not only are more and more Americans finding out each day that ISIS was also an inside job created by Israel, the CIA, the Pentagon and the Saudis like the attack on America on 9-11-01, but they are also understanding that all this uncontrolled toxic immigration into European nations and America is just another ploy of the World Zionists to destroy America and every European nation.

Sadly the leaders of the European nations and America have been deeply mind-kontrolled by the World Zionists to support this destruction of America by using very sophisticated means including psychotronics, psi-power, chemicals, biologics, cultural warfare methods, and old fashioned bribery and human compromise (best known as the plain manila envelope on the desk with compromising photos inside for any elected official who goes outside allowed parameters).

Numerous researchers and insiders expect a lot more false-flags inside America and Europe to be deployed by the World Zionists. They also expect the WZs to use the FBI and CIA to create increasing amounts of racial and class conflict inside America, perhaps leading to a civil war and the deployment of more and more police state power in America including perhaps even martial law in the street as the Banksters threatened congress with to force the massive bank bailouts after 2008.

The object of all this is to: keep folks conflicted and distracted with their psyops; to use this major conflict to justify the build up and deployment of more and more police power; and to justify the use of IDF anti-terror training for American Police Departments like that used to tyrannize the Palestinians (this itself creates more racial conflict and hatred for the police by many non minorities).

Never forget the deep commitment of the WZs and the Israelis to deploy the various different Samson Options if they feel that they have lost control and cannot restore it and Israel is going to become “Lebanized” or “Balkanized”.

One thing Israel did preparing for future Samson Options involved stealing over 100 Davy Crockett tactical nukes from Pantex, approved with a wink and a nod by the CIA, reconditioning them and then storing them in the basements of Israeli embassies. Other versions of the Samson Option may involve crashing out the American economy through their Babylonian Talmudic Banksters to force a new Globalist electronic monetary system based on Block chain technology.

This was stopped in America when the NEST teams (“Nuclear Snake-Eaters) forced Israelis to close the embassies in America down for a while supposedly due to labor problems. The nukes then were allegedly removed and disposed of by NEST tactical teams.

But the Israelis have other means too like their 600 nukes and numerous missiles which have targeted London, Rome, Paris and Moscow with. It is believed by some insiders that the Russians now have the electronic warfare means to deactivate these nukes soon after launch or even detonate them upon launch or at any time in flight.

When Israeli was found out by top the US Navy Admirals (Greybeards) for running the attack on America on 9-11-01 and using one of their Dolphin Class subs bought from Germany to launch a cruise missile which hit the Pentagon at the Naval Intel section, the USN sunk two of the Israeli Dolphin Class subs as revenge.

I have heard reports that a certain cadre of America Patriots in high US Command positions have already made numerous quiet by powerful covert moves which will completely geld Israel and the Likudists quite soon for attacking America on 9-11-01. What goes around comes around back at you all in due time, and these Israeli Likudists never seemed to get this.


Israeli Likudists are refusing to stop stealing Palestinian Lands to which they have no legal right under international law and genociding the Palestinians. Here’s why. They have been completely mind-kontrolled by the World Zionists who are using them as disposable cutouts and action agents to infiltrate and hijack the whole world. This is now beginning to fail and the defeat of ISIS et all is the proof of this.

And here is another reason many (but not all) Israelis do not want to stop stealing Palestinian land. Approximately 80% of Palestinians are true Semites that carry ancient Hebrew Blood, while approximately 97.5% of Israeli Jews carry absolutely no ancient Hebrew Blood at all and are not even Semites.

This make Israelis the world’s biggest anti-Semites. And the fake Hebrews of the SPLC and the ADL should stop accusing everyone of being anti-Semites for being angry at their tribes for all their anti-social acts and crimes when they are Khazarians and carry no ancient Hebrew Blood at all either.

Another possible WZ option is to manipulate the American Dual Citizens in the Pentagon and Administration into attacking Syria, Iran or North Korea and try to start a full scale nuclear WWIII.

After all, it was the NeoCons in the Pentagon and CIA that armed North Korea in the first place and are responsible for his arms build up and missile navigation systems. And it was the Israelis that used their advanced psychotronics to entrain Kim Jong-un’s brain to act in the way he is trying to establish parity with American weaponry.

Just recently US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson ask that Israel return part of the America aid given it. This along with all the recent BDS actions in Canada by the largest union and throughout Europe seems to suggest that a major turning point has been reached for the Khazarian Mafia and its days are numbered. especially since ISIS has now been defeated.

The Mossad and the FBI and CIA are now deploying lots of new small scale terror attacks and the Controlled Major Mass Media (CMMM) is proclaiming that ISIS has claimed responsibility. The CMMM is comprised of six international media corporations that are all controlled by the World Zionists. They actually comprise a virtual News Monopoly and violate anti-trust law and are at the beck and call of the World Zionists.

What is the saddest part of this is that so many US Military officers and enlisted men are still mind-kontrolled psychotronically and by the Major Mass Media’s big lies, false-narratives and propaganda to believe that ISIS just spontaneously occurred from radical Islamic extremists. They do not understand that ISIS was created by the Mossad, the CIA and the Saudis and that this is a deeply mind-kontrolled private mercenary army that has now been defeated.

In mainstream America, if one openly proclaims the truth that 9-11-01 was an inside job done mainly by the Mossad, or that ISIS was created by the Mossad, CIA, and Saudis, they will usually be immediately fired from their job, rejected by friends and even family in some cases.

Same goes for anyone that proclaims at work that Nobody Died at Sandy Hook or the Boston Bombing which has now been proved behind any shadow of a doubt because the evidence that no one died there is so strong.

This societal adherence to the BIG LIES of the World Zionists is just starting to change very slowly as the truth begins to diffuse to the masses. But for right now if anyone decides to proclaim openly that the King is naked, they will pay a terrible price of a ruined life and total rejection. And in many cases the full weight of the USG will come down on their heads.

Doubt this, then just ask Russell Tice, Bill Binney, Thomas Drake, Mark Klein, Mark Novitsky, Susan Lindauer, Scott Bennett, Mark Novitsky and hundreds more. The whole Congress and the DC administration as well as the Pentagon and all Intel Agencies are living this big lie believing that the King’s New clothes are always beautiful when the King is actually naked as a jaybird.

When members of American Society can openly proclaim the truth about 9-11-01, Sandy Hook and the Boston Bombing (that all were World Zionist False-flag operations) without being fired from their jobs, investigated by the FBI or DHS, or shunned by family and friends, then we will know that the evil World Zionists’ reign of terror, mass death and suffering and hell on earth has been stopped cold.

Until that day. May God Almighty bring it about soon.

Super Zionist Trump Goes Full MK Ultra Is R Hell Firster in UN Robotics.

Trump threatened to obliterate 25 million men, woman, and children solely because they are brainwashed by a big fat Jap Commie lite dictator. Emphasis on zio zombie Trump will enthusiastically war crime murder (like Yemen and Palestine) 25 million people in an atomic flash for whatever  reason the Zionist Neo Con’s put in his mind controlled carrot topped head!  That’s more than Scary.  Yet many Americans are brainwashed by Fake Jew News in the exact same NK manner  by let’s have  Nuclear WWIII Neo Con Sionists who have high jacked Jewamerica’s brains, money, and morality. We need to make America good again, then great again, first. Trump won election by seemingly bucking the Zionists/Neo Cons, Goldman Sachs, Is R Hell firsters, Dem. and Repub. both!. In all this, there is little difference between Trump and Kim!  Seemingly political opposites converge!  Kim has been much more reasonable than Trump, end the yearly war game harassment, I save face, and end missile shots over Japan. It’s a Good Deal.  But no, for deal maker Trump and his shiksa Zionist whore wicked Witch of the West  big mouth Niki Mouse Haley, a UN  street prostitute of John McCain and John Bolton, only WWIII will do. In Trump’s Mossad/CIA MK ultra mind control, America First and Is R Hell First are juxtaposed. But like oil and water not intermixed. The oil always rises to the top and blots out the light to the water below. Trump’s America First beautiful characterization of the UN is just a noble lie and the complete opposite of the UN David Rockefeller Globalist reality!  And more Zionist/Neo Con lies, lies, lies about Assad, Iran, and The Taliban based on lies, lies, lies about 9/11.Mossad did 9/11 and ISIS with Saudi and the CIA..  Trump “pro life abortion vote political profiteer” has still not defunded Planned Parenthood that murders 320,000 mostly black children every year, and Trump has the hutzpah to condemn  Assad, The Dictator,  for killing his own people!  Uninvited  US/Kurds at Raqqa Syria murder 27 men, women and children with phosphorous bombs every day.  And what about a Palestinian Nation State at the UN!. Trump’s fulfilling promises Presidency, as Bannon said, has ended. Now it is Zionist stooge Israel Firster mind controlled zombie Trump as President breaking campaign promises from now on, with Anti Catholic Zio Alex cheering Trump’s America First apostasy at each juncture.

Ran Paul-2020!

President Trump is Zionist NEO CON Is R Hell Terminal Cancer!

Trump though a super Zionist, Ashcannazi barely crypto Jew, enthusiastic pawn of Kushner/Bibi is and always will be terminal cancer for The Neo Con FeD, Jewamerica child eating Talmudic synagogue of Satan. Trump would not be terminal cancer if Trump was not an Israel Firster First, and in actuality an America Firster, second. Trump has betrayed those who elected him President to Make America Great Again, but not the Zionists. Just like Zio-Anti Catholic Church Jones, Trump has exposed himself irreparably as a NEO on the wrong side of history in Afghanistan, Yemen, Palestine, Syria, by DACA as having Neo Con Stooge DNA, but at the same time as Terminal Cancer rooted in Neo Con DNA. “Trump Supporters” planned a million man show of support in the DC Swamp recently and less than one thousand showed. Trump’s prep rallies are quickly starting to look like Hillary Clinton campaign rallies. In reaction, rabid dog Mathis The Neo Con Butcher of Fallujah, Iraq, murdering patriotic American Servicemen in proxy wars for IS-R-Hell is sending only 3,000 to be killed and wounded in an unwinnable war only to come back disabled and commit suicide. This is an admission of futility and defeat in Afghanistan by Trump and Neo Con Is R Hell First cronies. Trump as Neo Con DNA terminal cancer has shown he will walk things back, can change his mind. Afghanistan is about, CIA/Tel Aviv Heroin, an already annihilated Fed. Petro Dollar, and obsolete Rotheschild Turkestan Pipe Line. The Taliban whose only 9/11 sin was destroying the Poppy Fields, owns 60% of their county. Pakistan used as all Jewamerica War of Terror allies are, as Zionist Stooges for a Greater Is R Hell, insulted by Trump, are not permitting NATO/US resupply through Pakistan. The Taliban completely innocent of 9/11 Mossad shenanigans accused of by Trump, blew up a resupply NATO convoy originating from the Kabul Airport. The writing is on the wall. Ran Paul 2020!

Yasser Arafat PLO, Like Mossad/CIA ISIS, Zionist Stooges, You Are Burning in Hell For Ever, God Dammed You!

Arafat, Oslo, Sabra and Shatila – The Betrayal of Palestine

Barak, Clinton and Arafat, 2000

“Arafat was a narcissist self-serving, incompetent, corrupt fraud and a lie who did irreparable damage and harm, to the Palestinian people and cause. History will prove me right.”

The months of September and November are and should be “months of infamy” for Palestinians. It was on the 2nd of November 1917, when the infamous Lord Balfour of England gave his “promise” to Zionists leaders to establish a “Jewish Homeland” in Palestine.

And it was September 13th, 1993, when another infamous man, Yasser Arafat signed the Oslo Accord granting Israel full and unconditional recognition fulfilling the promise Lord Balfour gave to the Zionists.

It was also September 18, 1982, when Yasser Arafat turned his back on the thousands killed and massacred in Sabra and Shatila and turned his back on the hundreds of thousands of Palestinians refugees in Lebanon. Turning his back on his people is a trademark Arafat excelled in and perfected, from Jordan to Kuwait to Occupied Palestine and to all the millions of Palestinians in refugee camps and in the Diaspora.

Since taking over the Palestine Liberation Organization ” PLO” in 1969, Yasser Arafat insisted to have absolute and unconditional control over all decisions, certainly all-financial issues, accountable to no one. Resulting in the misuse and looting of tens of billions of dollars that remains unaccounted for. According to a CBC 60 Minute segment aired on November 7, 2003, and according to Jim Prince and a team of American accountants hired by Arafat he was able to divert at least $ one billion in public funds ” to ensure his political survival, but a lot more is unaccounted for.”

Yasser Arafat ran the PLO as a” mafia” boss rendered obsolete the establishment of any viable, independent and accountable Palestinian institutions. He rendered the Palestine National Congress “PNC” into a toy, a joke, shameless, and discredited “institution” waiving and forfeiting all of its rights as the representative of the Palestinian people under occupation and in the Diaspora.

He succeeded in doing that using the money to corrupt, to bribe, silence even threatens anyone who dares to challenge him. With no sense of duty, most if not all members of the PLO and PNC, just accepted Arafat dictates without any credible challenge thus setting the stage for the irreparable damage, harm, certainly betrayals, Arafat did to the Palestinian people certainly to the Palestinian cause.

Money and threats were his tools. He shamed all his subordinates by allowing them to loot, to cheat, to misuse of funds, that when they dared to challenge him, he pulls his little “black book” to silence them.

What I could never understand is why with many respectable and financially independent members of the PNC, no one dared to question Arafat and his political and financial management style. Back in 85 in Hotel Richmond in Geneva, I asked two very wealthy Palestinians who were members of the PNC this question and both were unable to give any reasons. Same true of Palestinian intellectuals.

While the financial corruption of Yasser Arafat and the PLO is legendary, the PLO, the claims of “Palestinian institutions” are lie. The incompetence and corruption of Arafat and the PLO will take many volumes; the essay here is about his criminal negligence and derelict of duty, which he promised to fulfill toward the Palestinian people, enough crime to convict him of high treason posthumously.

The prelude to Sabra & Shatila and Oslo was Lebanon when Arafat and the PLO escaped to from Jordan after losing the battle to challenge King Hussein in Jordan.

Arriving in Lebanon, Arafat went ahead creating his banana republic “Fakhani Republic” a state within a state in Lebanon. Arafat once again was the master at corrupting everything he touched, he allowed PLO and Fatah operatives and thugs to misuse and abuse their powers and presence in Lebanon, for which most Lebanese hated the PLO.

Many of his cadre’s senior cadres behaved with reckless disregard to the dignity of the Lebanese, the host country, no different from the way they behaved in Jordan, misusing their power and challenging the authority of the host country. More troubling and disgusting and shameful is the way they treated the citizens of both Jordan and especially Lebanon.

In Lebanon, PLO operative made extensive use of the bars and brothels of Lebanon as a way to “liberate” Palestine. While committed volunteers were stationed in camps in South Lebanon, the leadership, both military, and political made extensive use of the “good life” Lebanon offered, especially to executives of the PLO and Fatah with open expense accounts.

Sabra and Shatila Massacre:

With the tacit approval and green light from both President Reagan and General Alexander Haig, who served both as US Secretary of State and White House Chief of Staff, Menachem Begin, the Israeli prime minister and under then Ariel Sharon, Minister of Defense decide to invade Lebanon with expressed purpose of chasing the PLO out of Lebanon.

In 1982, Israel mobilized its army and within a couple of weeks laid siege of Beirut, the first Arab capital ever invaded by Israel. The siege of Beirut was cruel, savage, and destructive forcing the Reagan administration to interfere to put an end to the relentless crime Israel was committing as an “Occupying Power”.

To facilitate this the Reagan Administration dispatched ambassador Phillip Habib as Middle East Special Envoy. In that, a wider conflict was averted between Syria and Israel and between the Israel and the PLO.

Under the plans worked by ambassador Habib, there was a cease-fire, Arafat, and the PLO to withdraw and vacate Lebanon, and Israel withdraws from Beirut toward international borders. (Israel continued to occupy South Lebanon for 20 years, notwithstanding UNSC calling on its unconditional withdrawal).

More important of all, and recognizing the very volatile atmosphere between the Lebanese especial Israel’s allies the Lebanese Phalange, ambassador Habib gave US assurance that no harm will come to remaining hundreds of thousands of Palestinians and their families. Well, the US never kept its promise and Arafat never took the cause of the thousands who were massacred.

As soon as the ships carrying Arafat and his fighters, the Lebanese Phalange under the command of Elie Hobieka surrounded the Palestinian camps of Sabra and Shatila. The Israelis provide the needed security for the 300-400 members of the Lebanese militia, making sure there is no way out, the Lebanese Phalange under the supervision and floodlights went ahead, massacring over 3,500 Palestinians women, children, young and old, using both bullets and knives.

It was only a few days later the world woke up to the most heinous crime committed in Lebanon. The horror pictures they saw shocked the UN and the world.

Sean MacBride, assistant secretary general and president of the UN General Assembly indicted Israel “as the occupying power was responsible for the violence- the massacre was a form of genocide.”

Israel, on the other hand, was in shock and after a massive demonstration of 400,000 in Tel-Aviv, Begin and his government decided to appoint a “special commission” to look into what happened.

Israel’s Kahan Commission after 4 months of deliberation released its finding on 8 February 1983 and “concluded that direct responsibility rested with Gemayel Phalangists led by Fadi Frem and that no Israelis were deemed directly responsible, although Israel was held to be directly responsible”.

The Kahan report continued to state ” the decision on the entry of the Phalangists into the refugee camps was taken without consideration of the danger-which the makers and the executors of the decision were obligated to foresee as probable- The Phalangists would commit massacres and pogroms against the inhabitants of the camps, and without examination of the means for presenting this danger. Similarly, it is clear from the course of events that when the reports began to arrive about the actions of the Phalangists in the camps, no proper heed was taken of these reports, the correct conclusions were not drawn from them, and no energetic and immediate action were taken to restrain the Phalangists and put stop to their actions.”

As a result of the Kahan report, Ariel Sharon as defense minister was forced to resign, later to become prime minister and Menachem Begin resigned and retired from Israeli politics.

In contrast, Yasser Arafat, the PLO Executive Committee, and the PNC did not take any action or hold a formal hearing or called for and set up an international board of inquiry into the massacre. They all walked away, happy to escape with their lives and their bank accounts.

Unlike the Israelis who took to the streets forcing Begin and Sharon to resign, no Palestinian credible action was taken to hold Yasser Arafat, the PLO Executive Committee and the PNC liable or at least accountable for not only for the massacres that took place, for failing to hold the US, the Phalange and Israeli accountable, they all simply did nothing that anyone can one day pursue the criminals. Worst yet to come when Suha Arafat took on one of the senior Phalange security officers as her trusted financial advisor and who also happened to come to Washington on Arafat private plane when Arafat came to sign Oslo. No Palestinian organization cared or challenged Arafat, or called on him to resign.

Oslo Accord:

Oslo was yet another criminal undertaking by Arafat, the PLO Executive Committee, and the PNC. All three are guilty as charged.

Arafat, the narcissists and the clown he was always cared about he appeared to the world with his headdress, his pistol on his side, his military fatigues, thinking of himself the likes of Ho Chi Minh, Che Guevara, and Fidel Castro. None of who looted billions and has extensive use of private jets traveling the world.

Arafat, never caring for those under Israeli Occupation, was too busy to keep himself in the limelight, was so surprised and was caught off guard when the First Intifada broke out. He and the PLO Executive Committee were at loss.

The First Intifada put Israel and its then prime minister Yitzhak Rabin on the front pages and on the prime news as the Israeli army faced protesting Palestinians using stone with guns and tanks and policy of “broken bones.”

Arafat having sided with the criminal Saddam Hussein, and having lost support from the Gulf countries, his chief financial support, saw the First Intifada as a golden opportunity to be in the driver seats. Arafat did Rabin the biggest favor of his political career, ending and aborting the First Intifada. Rabin them must reciprocate the favor.

He opened secret channels with Israel and using the money he was able to undermine the First Intifada, by purchasing “agents” from the inside who were able and after two years of truly popular resistance to abort the First Intifada. The agents later became the heads of Arafat security forces. Israel and its image were saved, though it continued to use iron fists in the Occupied Territories.

President George Bush and his secretary of state James Baker took the opportunity of the successful Desert Storm campaign to try and open direct negotiations between Israel and the Arab countries, into what became as the Madrid Peace Conference.

Arafat and the PLO were not official members of the Madrid Conference, however, members of the Palestinians delegations were associated with the PLO, and were included as part of the joint delegation with Jordan.

The negotiations continued in Washington with the late Dr. Haider Abdul-Shafi, a very well respected Gaza physician lead the delegation. Arafat always worries about anyone who may pose a challenge to his leadership was leery of the independence and integrity of Dr. Abdul-Shafi and sent in one of his close associates Dr. Nabil Shaath to keep an eye on Dr. Abdul-Shafi and the negotiations.

Sensing that Dr. Abdul-Shafi was taking an independent line from the PLO, Yasser Arafat collecting on the favor he did to Rabin open a ‘secrete channel” with Israel sponsored and hosted by Norway’s Fafo Institute.

Unlike David Ben-Gurion who was all about establishing the State of Israel with its running institutions from day one, Yasser Arafat was never about having governing institutions, it was all about himself. Having surrounded himself with flunkies and “yes men” waiting for the handout. When it came to Oslo, Arafat could not count on anyone within the PLO or his office to organize a competent team of professionals to lead the negotiation.

With literally hundreds of thousands of professional Palestinians around the world with the highest professional degrees, lawyers and professors, and successful professionals Arafat chose to do it alone. Here I must fault the so-called ” Palestinian intellectuals” a closed circuit club of professors” who were part or close the PLO and Arafat who never took, certainly chose not take the cause of people and Palestine and challenge Yasser Arafat and his management style and his failing to establish sound credible accountable governing institutions. This failure also became clear after Oslo when Western powers felt sorry for the state of affairs of the Palestinians under Arafat that Adam Smith Institute decided to hire top-quality professionals to help the PLO to negotiate with Israel after the establishment of the Palestinian Authority.

What became clear is the criminal negligence and derelict of duty by Yasser Arafat and the PLO delegation to the negotiations, Mahmoud Abbas and Ahmed Qurai.
All three at best are intellectually incompetent, professionally unfit and unqualified, and are no match to the Israeli delegation of Yossi Beilin, Yair Hirschfeld, Simon Peres, Ron Pundak, Yitzhak Rabin and Uri Savir.

While Israel gathered the best brains to lead the negotiations, Arafat chose the most stupid incompetent, unqualified team to lead the negotiations, PLO senior members with hardly any or no legal experience worst hardly competent in the English language certainly with no knowledge of the Norwegian language.

Norway was no innocent bystander and was not the honest broker it pretended to be as was seen later when the Norway’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs commissioned the well-respected Norwegian academician Hilde Henriksen Waage to do a full study of the role Norway played in the secret negotiations. Professor Waage was surprised to discover that all the records and notes of the secret negotiations were missing or destroyed, concluding that the ” missing documents would have shown the extent to which Oslo Process was conducted on Israeli premises, with Norway acting as Israeli helpful errand boy”. Oslo was not the honest broker everyone thinks it was, accepting Israel’s red line and accepting the Palestinians were desperate for a deal at any costs.

Oslo Accord as negotiated and signed was nothing about ending the Israeli Occupation or reaching a final peace that takes into consideration the rights of return and the rights to stolen and confiscated properties.

Oslo was nothing more than a commercial and security business agreement between the State of Israel and Arafat and the PLO.

Arafat as a favor to Israel and desperate to conclude a deal that “saves his ass” left out all the important issues of concerns to the Palestinians; Jerusalem, Palestinian refugees, Israeli settlements, security and safety for the Palestinians and borders.
The “Letters of mutual recognition” between the PLO and Israel, Arafat signed on to an unconditional recognition of the State of Israel (with open borders and Jerusalem as its capital” and pledged to put an end to “violence” deeming all these years of his claim of “liberation” as violence and terrorism against the State of Israel. In exchange, Israel gave its recognition to the PLO as “representative of the Palestinian people and the partner to of the negotiations” thus securing for itself a stupid politically, professional, illegitimate reckless negotiating partner and making sure it excludes any future organization from ever sitting at the table to negotiate with Israel a final peace. Simply put there was never a promise of a Palestinian Statehood, all of this is nothing but “bullshit” the Palestinian leaders gives the people as morphine.

In these 24 years, the PLO/PA saved Israel over $50 billion in operational costs of the Israeli Occupation, saving Israeli billions to put to good use of providing every settler with $28,000 bonus, benefiting from the 80,000 strong Palestinian Security Forces that provide auxiliary security to the IDF and the settlers while never providing any security for the Palestinians from the daily attacks of the IDF and Settler’s. Oslo was and is a windfall for the senior members of the PLO and members of Fatah, certainly a windfall for the Palestinian Oligarchs. It is but a disaster for All of Palestinians, under Occupation and those in the Diaspora.

Concluding with a quote from one of the senior executive of the PLO Executive Committee. ” Oslo was the greatest idea Israel ever had, it let them continue with the occupation, without paying the costs- Dr. Mustafa Bargouthi. The question to Dr. Bargouthi is if this is your opinion why did join and became part of this management team?

Hammering the USSR’s Economy

In 1989 President George H. W. Bush began the multi-billion dollar Project Hammer program using an investment strategy to bring about the economic destruction of the Soviet Union including the theft of the Soviet treasury, the destabilization of the ruble, funding a KGB coup against Gorbachev in August 1991 and the seizure of major energy and munitions industries in the Soviet Union. Those resources would subsequently be turned over to international bankers and corporations. On November 1, 2001, the second operative in the Bush regime, President George W. Bush, issued Executive Order 13233 on the basis of “national security” and concealed the records of past presidents, especially his father’s spurious activities during 1990 and 1991. Consequently, those records are no longer accessible to the public. [1] The Russian coup plot was discussed in June 1991 when Yeltsin visited with Bush in conjunction with his visit to the United States. On that same visit, Yeltsin met discreetly with Gerald Corrigan, the chairman of the New York Federal Reserve. [2]

Because of numerous Presidential Executive Orders, the ethically questionable Project Hammer was deemed legal. Of course, even Hitler’s acts were “lawful,” as he had manipulated the laws to accommodate his actions. Many of Reagan’s executive orders were actually authored by Vice President Bush or his legal associates, and it is possible that Project Hammer was created by Reagan’s CIA Director, William Casey, who had directed OSS operations through Alan Dulles in Europe during World War II. Prior to his OSS affiliation, Casey worked for the Board of Economic Warfare which allegedly targeted “Hitler’s economic jugular.” [3] Allen Dulles, brother of John Foster Dulles, was the Director of the CIA from 1953 to 1961. He was a senior partner at the Wall Street firm of Sullivan and Cromwell, which represented the Rockefeller Empire and other mammoth trusts, corporations and cartels.

Project Hammer was staffed with CIA operatives and others associated with the National Security apparatus. Covert channels were already in place as a result of other illegal Bush activities. Thus, it was a given (1) that the project would use secret, illegal funds for unapproved covert operations, and (2) that the American public and Congress would not be informed about the illegal actions perpetrated in foreign countries. The first objective was allegedly to crush Communism, a growing political philosophy and social movement that was initially funded by the usual group of international bankers who now supported their demise. To this end, the “Vulcans,” under George H. W. Bush, waged war against the Soviet Union. [4]

The Return of the Vulcans

In their reincarnation in the administration of George W. Bush, the Vulcans functioned as a supposedly benign group, led by Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) member Condoleezza Rice, who attempted to augment and compensate for the Bush’s lack of experience and education concerning foreign policy during his presidential campaign. Rice had been President George H. W. Bush’s Soviet and East European Affairs Advisor in the National Security Council during the Soviet Union’s dissolution and during the German reunification (July 1, 1990). The resurrected Vulcan group included Richard Armitage, Robert Blackwill, Stephen Hadley, Richard Perle, Rabbi Dov S. Zakheim, Robert Zoellick and Paul Wolfowitz. Other key campaign figures included Dick Cheney, George P. Shultz and Colin Powell, all influential but not actually a part of the Vulcan Group. All of these people, associated with the George H. W. Bush administration, returned to powerful, strategic positions in George W. Bush’s administration.

Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz have been accused of being agents for the Israeli government. Investigations by Congress and the FBI have substantiated those allegations. Zakheim and his family were heavily involved in Yeshivat Sha’alvim, an educational organization in which students are taught to render absolute commitment to the State of Israel. [5]

Many of these individuals were also members of the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) which was established in the spring of 1997 with the intention of promoting American Global leadership at any cost. The chairman and co-founder was William Kristol, son of Irving Kristol (CFR), considered the godfather of neo-conservatism which promotes the ideas of Max Shachtman and Leo Strauss, a noted Zionist and professor of political science at the University of Chicago. Kristol’s co-founder was Robert W. Kagan (CFR). Kristol is also the editor and co-founder, along with John Podhoretz, of the Weekly Standard Magazine, established September 17, 1995 and owned by Rupert Murdoch until August 2009. This “conservative” magazine is edited by William Kristol and Fred Barnes and promotes Middle East warfare and a huge military budget, a mentality that infects the most popular “conservative” talk show radio hosts. Kristol is a trustee for the Manhattan Institute which was founded by CIA Director William Casey and was staffed with former CIA officers.

The Vulcans had almost limitless financing from a cache known by several names — the Black Eagle Trust, the Marcos gold, Yamashita’s Gold, the Golden Lily Treasure, or the Durham Trust. Japan, under Emperor Hirohito, appointed a brother, Prince Chichibu, to head Golden Lily, established in November 1937 before Japan’s infamous Rape of Nanking, to accompany and follow the military. The Golden Lily operation carried out massive plunder throughout Asia and included an army of jewelers, financial experts and smelters. [6] While the Nazis also engaged in plundering the countries they invaded, they were not as organized and methodical as the Japanese. After the Allied blockade, Golden Lily headquarters were moved from Singapore to Manila where 175 storage sites were built by slave laborers and POWs. Billions of dollars worth of gold and other plundered treasures were stockpiled in these underground caverns, some of which were discovered by the notorious Cold Warrior, Edward G. Lansdale who directed the recovery of some of the vaults. Truman and subsequent presidents, without congressional knowledge, have used those resources to finance the CIA’s chaotic clandestine activities throughout the world. Much of the Middle East chaos is financed by those pillaged funds. A tiny portion of that treasure was the source of Ferdinand Marcos’ vast wealth. Marcos worked with the CIA for decades using Golden Lily funds to bribe nations to support the Vietnam War. In return, Marcos was allowed to sell over $1 trillion in gold through Australian brokers. [7]

In July 1944, the leaders of forty-four nations met at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire to plan the post-war economy and to discuss organizing a global political action fund which would use the Black Eagle Trust ostensibly to fight communism, bribe political leaders, enhance the treasuries of U.S. allies, and manipulate elections in foreign countries and other unconstitutional covert operations. Certainly, those politicos who managed the funds also received financial benefits. This trust was headed by Secretary of War Henry Stimson, assisted by John J. McCloy (later head of the World Bank) and Robert Lovett (later Secretary of Defense) and consultant Robert B. Anderson (later Secretary of the Treasury). [8] Anderson later operated the Commercial Exchange Bank of Anguilla in the British West Indies and was convicted of running illegal offshore banking operations and tax evasion. Investors lost about $4.4 million. Consequently, he was sent to prison for a token amount of time, one month. He was also under house arrest for five years. He could have received a ten-year sentence but Judge Palmieri considered Anderson’s “distinguished service” to the country in the “top levels of Government.” [9]

Between 1945 and 1947 huge quantities of gold and platinum were deposited in prominent banks throughout the world. These deposits came to be known as the Black Eagle Trust. Swiss banks, because of their neutrality, were pivotal in maintaining these funds. These funds were allocated to fighting communism and paying bribes and fixing elections in places like Italy, Greece, and Japan. [10] Stimson and McCloy, both retired from government service, continued their involvement in the management of the Black Eagle Trust. Robert B. Anderson, who toured the treasure sites with Douglas MacArthur, set up the Black Eagle Trust and later became a member of Eisenhower’s cabinet. [11] In order to maintain secrecy about the Trust, Washington officials insisted that the Japanese did not plunder the countries they invaded. Japanese officials who wanted to divulge the facts were imprisoned or murdered in a way that made it look like suicide, a common CIA tactic. [12] The Germans paid reparations to thousands of victims while the Japanese paid next to nothing. Military leaders who opposed foreign policies that embraced exploitation of third world countries were suicided or died from mysterious causes, which includes individuals such as George S. Patton, Smedley D. Butler and James V. Forrestal.

The Vulcan’s effort to crush Communism and end the Cold War was largely funded by that Japanese plunder. The Vulcans were resurrected when George W. Bush was installed as president in 2000, facilitated by election maneuvers, probably lots of payoffs, and Jeb Bush’s purge of Florida voters. They conducted other illegal operations, like securities fraud and money laundering. This entailed murder and false imprisonment to prevent penitent participants from divulging the activities of the group. During the process of accomplishing the main objective of destroying the Soviet Union, the operatives made massive profits. In September 1991, George H. W. Bush and Alan Greenspan, both Pilgrims Society members, financed $240 billion in illegal bonds to economically decimate the Soviet Union and bring Soviet oil and gas resources under the control of Western investors, backed by the Black Eagle Trust and supported later by Putin who for the right price purged certain oligarchs. The $240 billion in illegal bonds were apparently replaced with Treasury notes backed by U.S. taxpayers. [13] To conceal the clearance of $240 billion in securities, the Federal Reserve, within two months, increased the money supply to pre-9/11 numbers which resulted in the American taxpayer refinancing the $240 billion. [14]

The Takeover of Russia’s Oil Industry

BP Amoco became the largest foreign direct investor in Russia in 1997 when it paid a half-billion dollars to buy a 10 percent stake in the Russian oil conglomerate Sidanko. Then in 1999, Tyumen Oil bought Sidanko’s prize unit, Chernogorneft which allegedly made BP Amoco’s investment worthless. Tyumen offered to cooperate with BP Amoco on the development of Chernogorneft but BP Amoco was not interested. [15] In October 1998, Halliburton Energy Services had entered into an agreement with Moscow-based Tyumen Oil Company (TNK). Their efforts were focused on the four western Siberia fields, the first one being the Samotlorskoye field. [16] TNK has proven oil reserves of 4.3 billion barrels and possibly as many as 6.1 billion barrels, with crude oil production and refining capabilities of 420,000 barrels/day and 230,000 barrels/day, respectively. TNK markets gasoline through 400 retail outlets. [17] In 2002 Halliburton and Sibneft, Russia’s fifth largest crude oil producer, signed an agreement. Sibneft will use Halliburton’s new technologies to improve well construction and processing while Halliburton directs all project management. [18]

Tyumenskaya Neftyanaya Kompaniya (Tyumen Oil Company) was established in 1995 by government decree. It is now TNK-BP, the leading Russian oil company and ranks among the top ten privately owned oil companies worldwide in terms of crude oil production. The company, formed in 2003, resulted from the merger of BP’s Russian oil and gas assets and the oil and gas assets of Alfa, Access/Renova group (AAR). BP and AAR each own fifty percent of TNK-BP. The shareholders of TNK-BP own almost fifty percent of Slavneft, a vertically integrated Russian oil company. [19] This transaction was the biggest in Russian corporate history and was managed by Vladimir Lechtman, the Moscow partner for Jones Day, a global law firm with thirty offices and 2,200 lawyers worldwide. TNK-BP, Russia’s second-largest oil company employs almost 100,000 people and operates in Samotlor. [20]

Putin was financially rewarded by the collaborators and was happy to purge some annoying industrialists who stood in the way. Mikhail Khodorkovsky was the manager of Yukos, the company that he built into Russia’s second-largest oil company after acquiring it for $168 million when his Bank MENATEP, the first privately owned but notoriously corrupt bank since 1917 and wiped out in August 1998, purchased it through a controversial government privatization auction in 1995. MENATEP was named as a defendant in the Avisma lawsuit which was filed on August 19, 1999. [21] The bank may have facilitated the large-scale theft of Soviet Treasury funds before and following the USSR’s collapse in 1991. [22] His company had borrowed hundreds of millions of dollars from western banks. [23] He was arrested on October 25, 2003 and sentenced in June 2005 to eight years on fraud and tax evasion charges. He was allegedly targeted as a political enemy by President Vladimir Putin who went after other big business owners who apparently made money by acquiring states assets. Yukos was sold piecemeal to pay off $28 billion in back tax charges. Yukos was seized and given to Rosneft. [24]

When Khodorkovsky was arrested, his secretive business arrangement with the Rothschild family was exposed as Jacob Rothschild assumed Khodorkovsky’s 26% control of Yukos while Khodorkovsky’s directorial seat on the Yukos board went to Edgar Ortiz, a former Halliburton vice president during Dick Cheney’s reign as CEO at Halliburton. Cheney, as President and CEO of Halliburton, automatically had an association with the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR). [25] In November 1997, Dick Chaney, in anticipation of imminent events, had appointed Edgar Ortiz as president of Halliburton Energy Services, their global division. [26]

The Yukos Oil Company merged with the smaller Sibneft Oil Company on October 3, 2003 which created Russia’s largest oil and gas business and the world’s fourth-largest private oil company. [27] On May 11, 2007 Halliburton announced they had made an agreement with the Tyumen State Oil and Gas University to open a new employee-training center in Russia to grow their business in that country and in the surrounding region. They are currently training students from five countries, Kazakhstan, the Netherlands, Norway, Russia and the United Kingdom. [28] Halliburton was awarded a $33 million contract by TNK-BP to provide oil field services to develop the Ust-Vakh field in Western Siberia. [29]

September 11 — Black Op Cover-up

Three top securities brokers had offices in the World Trade Center, Cantor Fitzgerald, Euro Brokers and Garbon Inter Capital. Flight 11 struck just under the floors where Cantor Fitzgerald was located. Cantor Fitzgerald, with possible connections to the U.S. Intelligence apparatus, was America’s biggest securities broker and apparently the main target. Within minutes, an explosion in the North Tower’s vacant 23rd floor, right under the offices of the FBI and Garbon Inter Capital on the 25th floor caused a huge fire from the 22nd through the 25th floors. At the same time, there was an explosion in the basement of the North Tower. [30] A vault in the North Tower basement held less than $1 billion in gold, much of which was reportedly moved before 9/11. However, the government had hundreds of billions of dollars of securities which were summarily destroyed. The Federal Reserve, untouched by the crisis at its downtown offices (as they had everything backed up to a remote location), assumed emergency powers that afternoon. The $240 billion in securities were electronically cleared. [31] Then, at 9:03, Flight 175 slammed into the 78th floor of the South Tower just below the 84th floor where Euro Brokers were located. [32] Brian Clark, the manager at Euro Brokers, heard numerous explosions, apparently unrelated to what he referred to as the oxygen-starved fire caused by the plane crash.

The September 11 attacks related to the financial improprieties during the preceding ten years which spurred at least nine federal investigations which were initiated in 1997-1998, about the same time that Osama bin Laden, after twenty years as a CIA asset, announced a fatwa against the U.S. The records of many of those investigations were held in the Buildings Six and Seven and on the 23rd floor of the North Tower. Those investigations were sure to reveal the black Eagle Trust shenanigans. [33] Building Seven, not hit by a plane, collapsed at 5:20:33 p.m. but was vacated as early as 9:00 when evacuees claimed to see dead bodies and sporadic fires within the building.

By 2008 and even earlier the covert securities were worth trillions. The securities used to decimate the Soviets and end the Cold War were stored in certain broker’s vaults in the World Trade Center where they were destroyed on September 11, 2001. They would have come due for settlement and clearing on September 12, 2001. [34] The federal agency investigating these bonds, the Office of Naval Intelligence was in the section of the Pentagon that was destroyed on September 11. Renovations at the Pentagon were due to be completed on September 16, 2001. However, the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), the entity that often monitors war games, was hurriedly moved. If they were monitoring the simultaneous war games that morning, they would have realized that the games were used as a distraction from the actual assault. Whatever hit the pentagon struck the Navy Command Center and the offices of the Chief of Naval Operations Intelligence Plot (CNO-IP). [35] There were 125 fatalities in the Pentagon; thirty-one percent of them were people who worked in the Naval Command Center, the location of the Office of Naval Intelligence. Thirty-nine of the forty people who worked in the Office of Naval Intelligence died. [36]

On September 10, 2001 Rumsfeld announced that the Pentagon couldn’t account for $2.3 trillion, “We are, as they say, tangled in our anchor chain. Our financial systems are decades old. According to some estimates, we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions. We cannot share information from floor to floor in this building because it’s stored on dozens of technological systems that are inaccessible or incompatible.” [37] It was forgotten the following morning. Accountants, bookkeepers and budget analysts who were in the section of the Pentagon being renovated met their unexpected deaths. The destruction of accounting facts and figures will prevent discovery of where that money went. I am quite certain someone knows where it is. Certainly this is not merely gross incompetence but private seizure of public funds. [38] At the time Rabbi Dov Zakheim was chief-financial officer for the Department of Defense. [39] In 1993, Zakheim worked for SPS International, part of System Planning Corporation, a defense contractor. His firm’s subsidiary, Tridata Corporation directed the investigation of the first “terrorist” attack on the World Trade Center in 1993. [40]

Certain National Security officials who had participated in the Cold War victory in 1991 thus comprised the collateral damage of the Cold War. They, along with hundreds of innocent people were in the World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon. Their deaths were presumably required to conceal the existence of the Black Eagle Trust, along with the numerous illegal activities it had funded for over 50 years. This massive destruction, and the lost lives, constitutes a massive cover-up and continued lawlessness by the brotherhood of death, Skull and Bones, and their accomplices, the Enterprise. [41] The Enterprise was established in the 1980s as a covert fascist Cold Warriors faction working with other groups like Halliburton’s private security forces and the Moonies. Citibank is connected to the Enterprise, along with all the CIA front banks, Nugen Hand and BCCI.

Double Dipping

Alvin B. “Buzzy” Krongard was elected Chief Executive Officer of Alexander Brown and Sons in 1991 and Chairman of the Board in 1994. Bankers Trust purchased Alexander Brown and Sons in 1997 to form BT Alex Brown. Krongard relinquished his investments in Alex Brown to Banker’s Trust as part of the merger. He became Vice Chairman of Banker’s Trust where he personally interacted with wealthy clients who were intimately linked to drug money laundering. After a year of possible networking, Krongard joined (or as Michael Ruppert suggests, rejoined) the CIA in 1998 where his friend, Director George Tenet, concentrated his skills on private banking ventures within the elite moneyed community. Senate investigations verify that private banking firms frequently engage in money laundering from illicit drugs and corporate crime operations. [42] On January 28, 2000 the Reginald Howe and GATA Lawsuit was filed which accused certain U.S. bullion banks of illegally dumping U.S. Treasury gold on the market. The lawsuit named Deutsche bank Alex Brown, the U.S. Treasury, Alan Greenspan, the Federal Reserve, and Citibank, Chase, as defendants. Gerald Corrigan was accused of having private knowledge of the scheme. [43] Krongard became the Executive Director of the CIA, essentially the Chief Operating Officer, and the number three man on March 16, 2001. Krongard, while at the CIA, arranged for Blackwater’s Erik Prince to get his first contract with the U.S. government, and later joined its board.

Richard Wagner, a data retrieval expert, estimated that more than $100 million in illegal transactions appeared to have rushed through the WTC computers before and during the disaster on September 11, 2001. A Deutsche Bank employee verified that approximately five minutes before the first plane hit the tower that the Deutsche Bank computer system in their WTC office was seized by an outside, unknown entity. Every single file was swiftly uploaded to an unidentified locality. This employee escaped from the building, but lost many of his friends. He knew, from his position in the company, that Alex Brown, the Deutsche Bank subsidiary participated in insider trading. Senator Carl Levin claimed that Alex Brown was just one of twenty prominent U.S. banks associated with money laundering. [44]

Andreas von Bülow, a Social Democratic Party member of the German parliament (1969-1994), was on the parliamentary committee on intelligence services, a group that has access to classified information. Von Bülow was also a member of the Schalck-Golodkowski investigation committee which investigates white-collar crime. He has estimated that inside trader profits surrounding 9/11 totaled approximately $15 billion. Von Bülow told The Daily Telegraph “If what I say is right, the whole US government should end up behind bars.” Further, he said, “They have hidden behind a veil of secrecy and destroyed the evidence…they invented the story of 19 Muslims working within Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda in order to hide the truth of their own covert operation.” He also said, “I’m convinced that the US apparatus must have played a role and my theory is backed up by the [Washington] government’s refusal to present any proof whatsoever of what happened.” [45]

On September 26, CBS reported that the amount was more than $100 million and that seven countries were investigating the irregular trades. Two newspapers, Reuters and the New York Times, and other mainstream media reported that the CIA regularly monitors extraordinary trades and economic irregularities to ascertain possible criminal activities or financial assaults. In fact, the CIA uses specialized software, PROMIS, to scrutinize trades. [46]

Numerous researchers believe, with justification, that the transactions in the financial markets are indicative of foreknowledge of the events of 9/11, the attacks on the twin towers and the pentagon. One of the trades, for $2.5 million, a pittance compared to the total, went unclaimed. Alex Brown, once managed by Krongard, was the firm that placed the put options on United Airlines stock. President Bush awarded Krongard by appointing him as CIA Executive Director in 2004. [47]

Between September 6 and 7, 2001, the Chicago Board Options Exchange received purchases of 4,744 put options on United Airlines and only 396 call options. If 4,000 of those options were purchased by people with foreknowledge, they would have accrued about $5 million. On September 10, the Chicago exchange received 4,516 put options on American Airlines compared to 748 calls. The implications are that some insiders might profit by about $4 million. These two incidents were wholly irregular and at least six times higher than normal. [48]

Morgan Stanley Dean Witter & Company, who occupied floors 43-46, 56, 59-74 of the World Trade Center, Tower 2, saw 2,157 of its October $45 put options bought in the three trading days before Black Tuesday. This compares to an average of 27 contracts per day before September 6. Morgan Stanley’s share price fell from $48.90 to $42.50 in the aftermath of the attacks. Assuming that 2,000 of these options contracts were bought based upon knowledge of the approaching attacks, their purchasers could have profited by at least $1.2 million. The U.S. government never again mentioned the trade irregularities after October 12, 2001. [49] Catastrophic events serve two purposes for the top criminal element in society — the perpetrators seize resources while their legislative accomplices impose burdensome restrictions on the citizens to make them more submissive and silent.
