As has become fairly typical for this writer, the thought of writing about Jorge Mario Bergoglio again is enervating, to say the least. However, the Argentine Apostate, it would appear, takes a truly devilish delight in throwing stink bombs all the time and all over the vast expanse of the ecclesiastical divide in this time of apostasy and betrayal as he unfailingly does the bidding of Christophobic totalitarians around the world.
This has become even more the case now during the plandemic, whose principal architects have counted on the full, active, and conscious participation of “Pope Francis” to slap down any and all of his “bishops” and priests/presbyters who are inclined to question the plandemic and/or to defy the restrictions that they impose to keep Catholics away from what purports to be Holy Mass or, in the case of traditional Catholic chapels in the underground, what are indeed true offerings of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition. Bergoglio will be one of “President-elect” Joseph Robinette Biden’s most enthusiastic enablers as he, the false “pontiff,” especially as relates to the plandemic and to the globalist efforts to “save the planet” from “man made climate change.” Everything is upside down, topsy turvy, inside out as the convergence of the anti-Incarnational forces of Modernity and Modernism has now reached the point of controlling almost every segment of public life so that they can turn their attention to controlling almost every aspect of our personal lives as well.
This commentary will attempt to pull together many related threads, highlighting Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s total trust in “health care professionals,” his willing acceptance of a “pandemic” caused by a virus whose mortality rate is less than one percent for those who are not elderly and/or do not have co-morbidities, and his complete subservience to the plandemicists.
Jorge the Submissive
Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI was the first of the current line of “antipopes” to make his thoughts known via book length interviews, doing so when he was Joseph Alois "Cardinal" Ratzinger.
Indeed, his first such “book” consisted of a series of interviews that Italian journalist Vittorio Messori conducted with him. The result was the much-heralded The Ratzinger Report in 1985 that made it appear the then prefect of the conciliar congregation for the destruction and deformation of the faith was a “conservative” theologian when he has been a disciple of the condemned nouvelle theologie. The Ratzinger Reporter reflected the confused mind of a confused man who had been a leading revolutionary peritus at the “Second” Vatican Council, but it created the myth of the “conservative” Ratzinger that spawned yet another myth, “Pope Benedict” as the restorer of tradition. The Ratzinger Report was so successful that the man who signed his name “Pope Benedict XVI” in 2003 on a postcard he sent to friends settled on fellow German Peter Seewald, a journalist, to be his own personal interview and hagiographer. It was just a little ten years ago that one of those book-length interviews with Seewald, The Light of the World: the Pope, The Church and Signs of The Times, caused a firestorm when, Ratzinger/Benedict, speaking off the cuff, said that the use of a certain type of prophylactic to prevent the spread of disease contracted for the most part by means of unnatural voice could be justified. This led to a month of more of clarifications upon clarifications, which were the subject of the following commentaries on this site: If Them, Why Not Others?, Let the Olympic Games of Absurdity Begin!, Razing The Last Bastions, Nothing New Under Benedict's Sun and Words and Actions Without Consequences.
In a case of the tail wagging the dog, The Ratzinger Report’s success convinced Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II to submit to a series of interviews with Vittorio Messori. Crossing the Threshold of Hope was thus the first “papal” book-length interview, establishing a “tradition” that has Ratzinger/Benedict and Bergoglio have carried on ever since. (I wrote a series in The Wanderer reviewing Crossing the Threshold of Hope and noted, despite praising Wojtyla/John Paul II’s criticism of Buddhism and other eastern religions and his discussion of the French Revolution, that his not-so-oblique endorsement of universal salvation contradicted the Holy Faith.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio has taken to given book length interviews to his own hagiographer, Austin Invereigh.
Although this might be obvious to older Catholics, but no true pope ever gave interviews of the sort that have been given by Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II, Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict and Jorge Mario Bergoglio. Our true popes did not make themselves accessible to journalists because they were conscious of the fact that a Successor of Saint Peter is not a profane figure but the very Vicar of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on earth and they would never want to be outside of their papal functions to those who could misconstrue, whether accidentally or deliberately, their words and thus bewilder if not scandalize the faithful. Our true popes also had the prudence to recognize that extemporaneous speech to a journalist might result in some inadvertent error on their part that would put into doubt the doctrine of papal infallibility and thus play into the hands of the enemies of Holy Mother Church. In plain English, our true popes never wanted to anything to diminish the stature of the papacy and thus to generate unwanted headlines for newspapers or magazines intent on making money through the sale of their publications.
Bergoglio’s latest “as told to” book, a genre that came into its own with sports figures in the Twentieth Century (see, for example, Jimmy Piersall’s Fear Strikes Out, which was written with Al Hirschberg, or Charles Dillon Stengel’s Casey at the Bat: The Story of My Life in Baseball, which was an “as told to” book written by Harry T. Paxton, and sportscaster Lindsey Nelson’s Backstage at the Mets, which was written with Al Hirschberg, etc.), was written with his own chosen hagiographer, Austin Invereigh, and the book’s title Let Us Dream: The Path to a Better Future is a prefect expression of Sillonist beliefs that were given expression at the “Second” Vatican Council in Gaudium et Spes and Dignitatis Humanae, December 7, 1965, and in which Bergoglio believes to the very depth of his cadaverous being.
Bergoglio has blasphemed God on numberless occasions since Easter Sunday, March 31, 2013, by referring to “God’s dreams.” This is a paganistic projection onto God of human properties of which he as not need as He is Omniscient, lives outside of time and space, sees both the beginning and the end of the world as an instant “now,” and as unfolding within His Holy Providence as He has known from all eternity. In this regard, therefore, it should be remembered that many Modernists are allied with socialists of one stripe or another as their respective paradigms are both based in wholly imaginary concepts that are defiance of the Order of Grace (Redemption) and the of Nature (Creation). God has no “dreams.” He is God. He is. He knows all things.
The Modernist/Socialist/Communist penchant for dreams is based a completely naturalistic view of the world that excludes belief in God altogether and/or denies that His Sacred Deposit of Faith has anything to do with how the “modern man” can build the “better world,” “dreams that Pope Saint Pius X exploded in Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910:
We know well that they flatter themselves with the idea of raising human dignity and the discredited condition of the working class. We know that they wish to render just and perfect the labor laws and the relations between employers and employees, thus causing a more complete justice and a greater measure of charity to prevail upon earth, and causing also a profound and fruitful transformation in society by which mankind would make an undreamed-of progress. Certainly, We do not blame these efforts; they would be excellent in every respect if the Sillonist did not forget that a person’s progress consists in developing his natural abilities by fresh motivations; that it consists also in permitting these motivations to operate within the frame of, and in conformity with, the laws of human nature. But, on the contrary, by ignoring the laws governing human nature and by breaking the bounds within which they operate, the human person is lead, not toward progress, but towards death. This, nevertheless, is what they want to do with human society; they dream of changing its natural and traditional foundations; they dream of a Future City built on different principles, and they dare to proclaim these more fruitful and more beneficial than the principles upon which the present Christian City rests.
No, Venerable Brethren, We must repeat with the utmost energy in these times of social and intellectual anarchy when everyone takes it upon himself to teach as a teacher and lawmaker – the City cannot be built otherwise than as God has built it; society cannot be setup unless the Church lays the foundations and supervises the work; no, civilization is not something yet to be found, nor is the New City to be built on hazy notions; it has been in existence and still is: it is Christian civilization, it is the Catholic City. It has only to be set up and restored continually against the unremitting attacks of insane dreamers, rebels and miscreants. OMNIA INSTAURARE IN CHRISTO. Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
There are no more fitting phrases to describe Jorge Mario Bergoglio than those used by Pope Saint Pius X to describe the Sillonists one hundred ten ago: insane dreamer, rebel, and miscreant.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio thinks and speaks in purely naturalistic terms, which is he can so readily project onto God attributes such as “dreams” that are a denial of His Omnipotence and Omniscience, and it is he views illness, suffering, and death almost exclusively in naturalistic terms, which is why he more than willing to be the “front man,” if you will, for a “new world order” that has never had any place for Christ the King and His true Church, a “new world order” in which a chimerical sense of “justice” can be achieved without men giving up and then repenting of their sins.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio always shows himself to be bereft of the Catholic Faith. The op-ed piece extracted from his “as told to” book with Austin Invereigh that was published in The New York Times on Friday, November 27, 2020, began with a typical Modernist ploy: drawing on one’s own experience to universalize from the particular, that is, to make general conclusions about the state of medical science now in 2020 based upon what he experienced over sixty years ago now in a hospital administered by true Catholics staffed by religious sisters who a cared about the Holy Faith. Bergoglio is thus predisposed to accept whatever the “experts” and the “professionals” (scientists, physicians, public health authorities, etc.) say is the case, and it just happens to be convenient for him that these pathological liars who support contraception, abortion, sodomy, gender-change operations, “brain death”/vital organ vivisection and transplantation, the starvation and dehydration of innocent human beings, “palliative care”/hospice, and vaccinations replete with all kinds of poisons and genetic modifiers are secular statists to the very core of their “professional beings” (Please see the Appendix below for a review of inherent dangers in these genetic modifiers).
Indeed, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, posing under pseudonym of “Pope Francis,” is a secularist at heart who, quite unlike the first pope, Saint Peter, is so ashamed of the Holy Name of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ that he omitted all reference to the Holy Name of the One Whose vicar he proposes to be. Bergoglio, in contradistinction to the regal authority of our true popes, is a compliant servant of the forces of Antichrist in the world who is trying not to sanctify or save souls but to convince Catholics to participate in measures undertaken by men and women who believe that we have no other freedom than to agree to their judgments and then to submit to them without complaint:
In this past year of change, my mind and heart have overflowed with people. People I think of and pray for, and sometimes cry with, people with names and faces, people who died without saying goodbye to those they loved, families in difficulty, even going hungry, because there’s no work.
Sometimes, when you think globally, you can be paralyzed: There are so many places of apparently ceaseless conflict; there’s so much suffering and need. I find it helps to focus on concrete situations: You see faces looking for life and love in the reality of each person, of each people. You see hope written in the story of every nation, glorious because it’s a story of daily struggle, of lives broken in self-sacrifice. So rather than overwhelm you, it invites you to ponder and to respond with hope. (Bergoglio’s Apologia for the Socialist Utopia.)
Comment Number One:
What is this nonsense of thinking “globally”?
One who believes himself to be the Visible Head of the Church that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope, has a universal responsibility to assure the sanctification and salvation of every person on the face of this earth. A true pope who is possessed of the Catholic Faith is never “paralyzed” by problems in the natural order of things as he knows that everything occurs within the Providence of God and that the graces won for us by the shedding of every single drop of His Co-Equal, Co-Eternal Divine Son’s Most Precious Blood during His Passion and Death on the wood of the Holy Cross on Good Friday and that flow into our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces, are more than sufficient for us to accept and then to prosper spiritually no matter who kind of suffering is entailed.
Catholics are joyful to lift high the Cross. Indeed, they are grateful to have the opportunity to suffer for the honor and glory of God and the good of souls as they pray to make reparation for their own sins and those of the whole world as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed Mother, Our Lady.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio, however, does not believe in redemptive suffering because he does not believe in the Catholic Faith. This is why he always thinks in naturalistic terms in times of crisis, something that he related, perhaps without knowing so, as he described his experience of a serious illness that nearly killed him when he was twenty-seven years of age:
These are moments in life that can be ripe for change and conversion. Each of us has had our own “stoppage,” or if we haven’t yet, we will someday: illness, the failure of a marriage or a business, some great disappointment or betrayal. As in the Covid-19 lockdown, those moments generate a tension, a crisis that reveals what is in our hearts.
In every personal “Covid,” so to speak, in every “stoppage,” what is revealed is what needs to change: our lack of internal freedom, the idols we have been serving, the ideologies we have tried to live by, the relationships we have neglected.
When I got really sick at the age of 21, I had my first experience of limit, of pain and loneliness. It changed the way I saw life. For months, I didn’t know who I was or whether I would live or die. The doctors had no idea whether I’d make it either. I remember hugging my mother and saying, “Just tell me if I’m going to die.” I was in the second year of training for the priesthood in the diocesan seminary of Buenos Aires.
I remember the date: Aug. 13, 1957. I got taken to a hospital by a prefect who realized mine was not the kind of flu you treat with aspirin. Straightaway they took a liter and a half of water out of my lungs, and I remained there fighting for my life. The following November they operated to take out the upper right lobe of one of the lungs. I have some sense of how people with Covid-19 feel as they struggle to breathe on a ventilator.
I remember especially two nurses from this time. One was the senior ward matron, a Dominican sister who had been a teacher in Athens before being sent to Buenos Aires. I learned later that following the first examination by the doctor, after he left she told the nurses to double the dose of medication he had prescribed — basically penicillin and streptomycin — because she knew from experience I was dying. Sister Cornelia Caraglio saved my life. Because of her regular contact with sick people, she understood better than the doctor what they needed, and she had the courage to act on her knowledge.
Another nurse, Micaela, did the same when I was in intense pain, secretly prescribing me extra doses of painkillers outside my due times. Cornelia and Micaela are in heaven now, but I’ll always owe them so much. They fought for me to the end, until my eventual recovery. They taught me what it is to use science but also to know when to go beyond it to meet particular needs. And the serious illness I lived through taught me to depend on the goodness and wisdom of others. (Bergoglio’s Apologia for the Socialist Utopia.)
Comment Number Two:
One will notice that, apart from the competence and compassion of the nurses that characterized truly Catholic hospitals in the past and remain the standard for authentic medical care based upon a desire to obey God’s commandments and to treat patients as they would treat Our Lord in the very Flesh, Jorge Mario Bergoglio emphasized his suffering without using the opportunity to catechize his readers that suffering, pain, and death are but the inescapable consequences of Original Sin and provide those who suffer with an opportunity to make reparation for their own sins. Bergoglio’s discussion in this regard is entirely naturalistic.
In this regard, therefore, it should be remembered that Jorge Mario Bergoglio is at a loss to explain human suffering and has made it clear on many occasions that he hopes his death will be a quick one without a lot of pain. In other words, he is a moral coward who is afraid to carry his own crosses with love and gratitude, which is why he is compelled to constantly attack, belittle and defame those who criticize him for his multiple defections from the Holy Faith, and incapable of exhorting others to bear their crosses lovingly and gratefully.
Here is a summary of various other occasions when Jorge Mario Bergoglio was at a loss to explain human suffering as taken from various commentaries that have appeared on this website:
No one who has the sensus Catholicus could say what this hideous heretic from Argentina said to an Italian radio station in an interview on Saturday, November 14, 2015, the Feast of Saint Josaphat, about the Mohammedan terror attacks in Paris, France, that took place on Friday evening, November 13, 2015, the Feast of Saint Didacus (San Diego de Alcala) and the Commemoration (in some places) of Saint Stanislaus Kostka:
In a telephone interview on Saturday with the Italian Bishops’ Conference official television network – TV2000 – Pope Francis said the attacks are “not human.”
“I am close to the people of France, to the families of the victims, and I am praying for all of them,” Pope Francis said. “I am moved and I am saddened. I do not understand, these things hard to understand.”
When asked if this is part of the “piecemeal Third World War” the Holy Father has mentioned many times before, Pope Francis said “this is a piece of it,” adding “there is no religious or human justification for it.” (No religious or human justification for Paris attacks.)
“These things are hard to understand” for Jorge Mario Bergoglio because he does not understand or accept the following facts of the Catholic Faith.:
Fact Number Two:
The remote cause of all problems in the world is Original Sin.
Fact Number Three:
The proximate causes of all problems in the world are the Actual Sins of us all.
Fact Number Four:
Unbaptized persons have souls that are captive to the devil by means of Original Sin, which inclines them to commit Actual Sins, hate others, nurture grudges and then plot and carry out acts of violent revenge against those they hate.
Fact Number Five:
There will always be problems in the world as a result of Original Sin, whose vestigial remnants in the souls of the baptized include the darkened intellect, which inclines men to resist the known truth, and the weakened will, which makes it difficult for men to choose in accord with what they know to be true, and as a result of our own Actual Sins, whether mortal or venial.
Fact Number Six:
The extent to which order prevails in the world is the extent to which it prevails in the souls of men that are at peace with the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Blessed Trinity, by virtue of being in a state of Sanctifying Grace. Men must strive to be holy and to root out sin from their souls by making a good, integral confession of their sins to a true priest in the Sacred Tribunal of Penance. Men must desire to go to Heaven by seeking to grow in virtue and sanctity as they enslave themselves to Christ the King through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Fact Number Seven:
Although Jorge Mario Bergoglio had no answer for a young girl in The Philippines ten months ago when she asked him why God would permit the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) on November 8, 2011, the Octave of the Feast of All Saints, saying that he “did not know” why such tragedies occurred, a Catholic understands that even the forces of nature, having had their perfect balance rent asunder when Adam sinned, are affected by the pestilential influence of unforgiven sins. God permits tragedies to afflict even innocent children because He wants them to embrace the Holy Cross on which His Co-Equal, Co-Eternal Divine Son redeemed them. God permits violent acts to be committed by men to show us the necessity of using our free will responsibly in accord with the dictates of right reason, informed as it must be by the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law, and of making reparation for our sins and those of the whole world. Men must pray for the conversion of non-Catholics to the true Church, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order, and to pray for the conversion of poor sinners as they seek to amend their own lives by cooperating with the graces for them by the shedding of every single drop of Our Lord’s Most Precious Blood during His Passion and Death on the wood of the Holy Cross that come down into their souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces.
Fact Number Eight:
A believing Catholic understands that he must suffer in order to go home to Heaven. A believing Catholic desires to suffer even what are grave injustices in the human order of things, knowing that the freely-embraced self-abnegation required of those who are friends of the Cross recognizes all things that occur to him as having been ordained by Divine Providence and is thus an instrument of his own sanctification and salvation.
I want to spend some time on this as Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s perplexity about human suffering speaks volumes about the fact that he is not a friend of the Cross. Saint Louis de Montfort described what it is to be a true friend of Holy Cross of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ:
50. Ninth. The love you are told to have for the Cross is not sensible love, for this would be impossible to human nature.
It is important to note the three kinds of love: sensible love, rational love and love that is faithful and supreme; in other words, the love that springs from the lower part of man, the flesh; the love that springs from the superior part, his reason; and the love that springs from the supreme part of man, from the summit of his soul, which is the intellect enlightened by faith.
51.God does not ask you to love the Cross with the will of the flesh. Since the flesh is the subject of evil and corruption, all that proceeds from it is evil and it cannot, of itself, submit to the will of god, and His crucifying law. It was this aspect of His human nature which Our Lord referred to when He cried out, in the Garden of Olives: “Father, . . . not My will but Thine be done.” (Luke 22, 42). If the power powers of Our Lord’s human nature, though holy, could not love the Cross without interruption, then, with still greater reason, will our human nature, which is very much vitiated, repel it. At times, like many of the saints, we too may experience a feeling of even sensible joy in our sufferings, but that joy does not come from the flesh though it is in the flesh. It flows from our superior powers, so completely filled with the divine joy of the Holy Ghost, that it spreads to our lower powers. Thus a person who is undergoing the most unbearable torture is able to say: “My heart and my flesh have rejoiced in the living God” (Ps. 83, 3).
52. There is another love of the Cross which I call rational, since it springs from the higher part of man, his reason. This love is wholly spiritual. Since it arises from the knowledge of the happiness there is in suffering for God, it can be and really is perceived by the soul. It also gives the soul inward strength and joy. Though this rational and perceptible joy is beneficial, even very beneficial, it is not an indispensable part of joyous, divine suffering.
53.That is why there is another love, which the masters of the spiritual life call the love of the summit and highest point of the soul and which the philosophers call the love of the intellect. When we possess this love, even though we experience no sensible joy or rational pleasure, we love and relish, in the light of pure faith, the cross we must bear, even though the lower part of our nature may often be in a state of warfare and alarm and may groan, weep and sigh for relief; and thus we repeat with Jesus Christ: “Father . . . not My will but Thine be done” (Luke 22, 42), or with the Blessed Virgin: “Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be it done unto Thy word” (Luke 1, 38). (Saint Louis de Montfort, A Circular Letter to the Friends of the Cross, Montfort Publications, p. 24.)
To perfectly love the Cross, Saint Louis de Montfort explains, we must be willing to suffer all things well, to suffer them with equanimity and joy. This has special application today in this time of apostasy and betrayal when so many families are so torn apart from by the apostasies and sacrileges wrought by the conciliarists, allies of the devil who have set believing Catholics against each other in the most bitter terms. It is difficult to lose the respect and esteem of others, especially family members and close friends, when one has come to recognize that those who defect knowingly from even one article contained in the Deposit of Faith have expelled themselves from the Catholic Church and cannot hold ecclesiastical office within her legitimately. It is difficult to persevere in the truth when all manner of pressure is brought to bear to conform to the “mainstream” of opinion. This is how many Catholics went over to Arianism in the Fourth Century and how many Catholics in England defected to Protestantism in the Sixteenth Century. It is hard to go against the tide of prevailing views. It is, however, necessary to do so to be faithful to Our Lord, Who was abandoned by all but one of His Apostles at the foot of the Cross:
54. Tenth. Be resolved then, dear Friends of the Cross, to suffer any kind of cross without excepting or choosing any: all poverty, all injustice, all temporal loss, all illness, all humiliation, all contradiction, all calumny, all spiritual dryness, all desolation, all interior and exterior trials. Keep saying: “My heart is ready, O God, my heart is ready” (Ps. 56, 8) Be ready to be forsaken by men and angels, and seemingly by God Himself. Be ready to to be persecuted, envied, betrayed, calumniated, discredited and forsaken by everyone. Be read to undergo hunger, thirst, poverty, nakedness, exile, imprisonment, the gallows, and all kinds of torture, even though you are innocent of everything with which you may be charged. What if you were cast out of your our home like Job and St. Elizabeth of Hungary; thrown, like this saint, into the mire; or dragged upon a manure pile like Job, malodorous and covered with ulcers, without any to bandage your wounds, without a morsel of bread, never refused to a horse or a dog? Add to these dreadful misfortunes, all the temptations with which God allows the devil to prey upon you, without pouring into your soul the least feeling of consolation.
Firmly believe that this is the summit of divine glory and real happiness for the true, perfect Friend of the Cross. (Saint Louis de Montfort, A Circular Letter to the Friends of the Cross, Montfort Publications, p. 28.)
Bergoglio does not understand that the only way to win the crown of glory in eternal life is to be willing to have a crown of thorns beat into our own skulls each and every day of our loves, considering our sufferings as nothing in comparison to those endured by Our Divine Redeemer during this days of His Passion and Death. The Cross is indeed the solution to every problem that we face in our lives:
57. Third, consider the Wounds and Sorrows of our crucified Jesus. Hear what He himself has to say: “All ye that pass along the thorny and crucifying way I had to follow, look and see. Look with the eyes of your body; look with the eye of contemplation, and see if your poverty, nakedness, disgrace, sorrow, desolation are like unto Mine. Behold Me, innocent, as I am, then will you complain, you are guilty” (Lam. 1, 12).
The Holy Ghost tells us, by the mouth of the Apostles, that we should keep our eyes on Jesus Crucified (Gal. 3, 1) and arm ourselves with this thought of Him (1 Pet. 4, 1) which is our most powerful and most penetrating weapon against all our enemies. When you are assailed by poverty, disrepute, sorrow, temptation or any other cross, arm yourselves with this shield, this breastplate, this helmet, this two-edged sword (Eph. 6, 12-18), that is, with the thought of Jesus crucified. There is the solution to your every problem, the means you have to vanquish all your enemies.
58. Fourth, lift up your eyes, behold the beautiful crown that awaits you in Heaven if you carry your cross as you should. That was the reward which kept patriarchs and prophets strong in faith under persecution. It gave heart to the Apostles and martyrs in their labors and torments. Patriarchs used to say as Moses had said: “We would rather be afflicted with the people of God,” so as to enjoy eternal happiness with Him, “than to have the pleasure of sin for a short time (Heb. 11, 25-26). The prophets repeated David’s words: “We suffer great persecutions on account of the reward (Ps. 68, 8; 118, 112). The Apostles and martyrs voice the sentiments of St. Paul: We are, as it were, men appointed to death: we are made a spectacle to the world, and to angels, and to men,” by our sufferings “being made the offscouring of the world,” (1 Cor. 4, 913), “by reason of the exceeding and eternal weight of glory, which this momentary and light tribulation worketh in us” (2 Cor. 4, 17).
Let us see and listen to the angels right above us: “Be careful not to forfeit the crown that is set aside for you if you bravely bear the cross that is given to you. If you do not bear it well, someone will bear it in your stead and will take your crown. All the saints warn us: fight courageously, suffer patiently and you will be given an everlasting kingdom.” Let us hear Jesus: “To him only will I give my reward who shall suffer and overcome through patience” (Apoc. 2, 6; 11, 17; 3, 5; 21,7). (Saint Louis de Montfort, A Circular Letter to the Friends of the Cross, Montfort Publications, p. 26-27.)
Imagine would good “Pope Francis” might have done by writing in these terms in his November 27, 2020, op-ed commentary.
As we know, however, he does not even think in these terms, which is why he is incapable of speaking or writing as befits a Catholic, no less one who has on his immortal soul the duty to make sure that every person alive on the face of the earth has access to the truths of the true Faith so that they can enlightened to convert to the Catholic Church if they are outside the Barque of Saint Peter or to return if they have strayed from the path of salvation.
Writing in Iam Vos Omnes, September 13, 1968, Pope Pius IX explained his duties as the universal shepherd of souls, which is why he was taking the opportunity of addressing non-Catholic Christians to exhort them to predisposed to listen to the pronouncements of the [First] Vatican Council without prejudice when it convened a year so that they recognize that the Catholic Church is the only means of salvation:
It is for this reason that so many who do not share 'the communion and the truth of the Catholic Church' must make use of the occasion of the Council, by the means of the Catholic Church, which received in Her bosom their ancestors, proposes [further] demonstration of profound unity and of firm vital force; hear the requirements [demands] of her heart, they must engage themselves to leave this state that does not guarantee for them the security of salvation. She does not hesitate to raise to the Lord of mercy most fervent prayers to tear down of the walls of division, to dissipate the haze of errors, and lead them back within holy Mother Church, where their Ancestors found salutary pastures of life; where, in an exclusive way, is conserved and transmitted whole the doctrine of Jesus Christ and wherein is dispensed the mysteries of heavenly grace.
It is therefore by force of the right of Our supreme Apostolic ministry, entrusted to us by the same Christ the Lord, which, having to carry out with [supreme] participation all the duties of the good Shepherd and to follow and embrace with paternal love all the men of the world, we send this Letter of Ours to all the Christians from whom We are separated, with which we exhort them warmly and beseech them with insistence to hasten to return to the one fold of Christ; we desire in fact from the depths of the heart their salvation in Christ Jesus, and we fear having to render an account one day to Him, Our Judge, if, through some possibility, we have not pointed out and prepared the way for them to attain eternal salvation. In all Our prayers and supplications, with thankfulness, day and night we never omit to ask for them, with humble insistence, from the eternal Shepherd of souls the abundance of goods and heavenly graces. And since, if also, we fulfill in the earth the office of vicar, with all our heart we await with open arms the return of the wayward sons to the Catholic Church, in order to receive them with infinite fondness into the house of the Heavenly Father and to enrich them with its inexhaustible treasures. By our greatest wish for the return to the truth and the communion with the Catholic Church, upon which depends not only the salvation of all of them, but above all also of the whole Christian society: the entire world in fact cannot enjoy true peace if it is not of one fold and one shepherd. (Pope Pius IX, Iam Vos Omnes, September 13, 1868.)
Anyone who believes that Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who has told us on numerous occasions that he does not want to convert anyone to what he thinks is the Catholic Church, shares Pope Pius IX's fear for his soul if he did not invite non-Catholics into Church is either mired in delusion or is steeped in ranked intellectual dishonesty as they shut their eyes and close their mouths to the truth that Bergoglio believes not a word of Pope Pius IX's exhortation contained in Iam Vos Omnes. Unlike Pope Pius IX, the Argentine Apostate does not believe that Catholicism is the one and only foundation of personal and social order.
Bergoglio does not believe that the Catholic Church has a “monopoly” on revealed truth and he does not believe that the temporal good of men and their nations depends upon the right ordering of their souls by means of persisting in a state of Sanctifying (Habitual) Grace. Quite instead, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a willing mouthpiece for the lords of the world, including the brutal dictators of Red China, even to the point of ordering us peons in the peanut gallery to lock ourselves up in our houses and live in fear of a virus that has a less than one percent chance of killing people who are not elderly and/or who do not suffering from underlying co-morbidities.
Taking A Swipe at President Donald John Trump and Parroting the Statist Line
The Argentine Apostate has been consistent in his open support for lockdowns, which have already made it impossible even for believing Catholics to celebrate Lent, Holy Week, and Easter in a Catholic church where the true Mass is offered by priests who make no concessions to conciliarism or its false officials, that are now on the precipice of keeping Catholics away from that they think is Holy Mass on Christmas Day by writing about the sacrifice of healthcare professionals who have been willing to lay down their lives to care for their patients:
This theme of helping others has stayed with me these past months. In lockdown I’ve often gone in prayer to those who sought all means to save the lives of others. So many of the nurses, doctors and caregivers paid that price of love, together with priests, and religious and ordinary people whose vocations were service. We return their love by grieving for them and honoring them.
Whether or not they were conscious of it, their choice testified to a belief: that it is better to live a shorter life serving others than a longer one resisting that call. That’s why, in many countries, people stood at their windows or on their doorsteps to applaud them in gratitude and awe. They are the saints next door, who have awakened something important in our hearts, making credible once more what we desire to instill by our preaching.
They are the antibodies to the virus of indifference. They remind us that our lives are a gift and we grow by giving of ourselves, not preserving ourselves but losing ourselves in service.
With some exceptions, governments have made great efforts to put the well-being of their people first, acting decisively to protect health and to save lives. The exceptions have been some governments that shrugged off the painful evidence of mounting deaths, with inevitable, grievous consequences. But most governments acted responsibly, imposing strict measures to contain the outbreak. (Bergoglio’s Apologia for the Socialist Utopia.)
Comment Number Three:
There are several fallacies contained in the final paragraph of the passage just cited.
First, the entire “pandemic” is a scam whose paradigm was “gamed out” at Event 201 on October 18, 2019, the Feast of Saint Luke the Evangelist. Even 201 mapped out a plan to instill fear in the general population as the pretext for imposing totalitarianism arbitrarily in the name of “public health and safety.” The virus which has been the pretext for the fear mongers was created in a Red Chinese biological weapons factory with assistance provided Dr. Anthony Fauci in 2013 at a time when a moratorium had been placed on the use of Federal money for the sort of “research” that was underway in Wuhan, Red China.
Second, Bergoglio’s reference to “some exceptions” is clear reference to the administration of President Donald John Trump even though the (probably) outgoing president enabled the likes of Anthony Fauci, Dr. Deborah Birx and Dr. Robert Redfield at every turn as he mugged for the cameras on a daily basis that did nothing but give credibility to a hoax that has convinced hundreds upon hundreds of millions of people to scared of their own relatives, whom they believe might transmit the “deadly” virus. Trump came to realize that was being scammed too late to change the direction of the “narrative” that his enemies had created to destroy the global economy and to pin the blame for the spread of the virus on him rather than on Red China. Make no mistake about it, however, “Pope Francis” was taking another swipe at Donald John Trump before the latter is expected by most to leave office on January 20, 2021.
Third, the plandemic gave Trump’s enemies, among whom can be counted, ironically, his fellow Zionist, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the opportunity to criticize him and to use the fascism of “social distancing” to create the “necessity” for mail-in ballots, which had been planned in advance to be counted without the presence of bi-partisan poll watchers and without following existing state statues and regulations governing the verification of the signatures on absentee ballots. Jorge Mario Bergoglio is reveling in the apparent defeat of President Donald Trump as he has been seen by Jorge’s archenemy, Father Carlo Maria Vigano, as a defender of national sovereignty and human liberty (not that the American concept of liberty is such as the one and only standard of authentic human liberty is the Holy Cross of Our Divine Redeemer, Christ the King). Donald John Trump has become a surrogate in the ongoing battle between Bergoglio and Vigano.
Fourth, Bergoglio reveals himself once again to be but a useful idiot for the lockdown state by parroting our civil minders’ endless invocations of “mounting deaths” that they attribute in their disinformation campaigns to the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus. The lords of the lockdown know full well that they and their public health comrades-in-disinformation-and-fear have inflated the numbers of those who are said to have tested “positive” by means of unreliable and, in all too many cases, spiked tests that provide false positive results while at the same time inflating the numbers of deaths they attribute to the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus to people who have never had the disease and who have died because of some underlying conditions who would have died with pneumonia or the flu. There have been numerous cases of people dying because of heart attacks or cardiac arrests being labeled as cause by the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus even though they had not contacted the virus. Even victims of automobile accidents and of people dying after having fallen down a flight of stairs in their own homes have been labeled as caused by the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus.
Mind you, there are legitimate cases of serious, life-threatening infections caused by the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus. However, many of these infections have been bungled by health care “professionals” while other doctors and immunologists who are not behold to the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)’s collective plandemic agenda have identified deficiencies of various elements necessary for the proper functioning of the human immune system against such viruses (see How to Improve the Immune System). A lot of the more serious cases have been treated successfully with hydroxychloroquine and with massive doses of Vitamin C (see Mega Dose of Vitamin C Treates Sepsis in Coronavirus Patient in Australia), Vitamin D, Magnesium, Zinc, and Selenium.
If the civil minders of the lockdown state have down a “good job” of controlling the spread of the disease, why did the likes of Governor Andrew Mark Cuomo of the empire state of killing innocent human beings deliberately place people who had the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus in nursing homes, thereby placing at risk the elderly residents in those homes who are most at risk for suffering ill consequences from a virus that some of those who have had it described me as little more than a cold?
The answer: Because the civil minders of the lockdown state wanted an easy way to boost the numbers of those they could claim had died because of “complications” (including, of course, “palliative care,” which Dr. Anthony Fauci called “comfort care” nine months ago) of the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus and thus keep the scam going for as long as possible while burnishing their own credentials as “defenders” of human life even though they are reckless killers of the preborn and suborn all manner of killing after birth under the aegis “brain death,” “quality of life” and “compassion.”
To paraphrase the fiction Chief Robert T. Ironside in the eponymous pilot film (Tuesday, March 28, 1967) for the subsequent series that lasted from September 14, 1967, to January 16, 1975: Query, if the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus is so deadly, why do so many of our civil minders attend parties in restaurants without “social distancing” and without wearing the face coverings that are designed to get us accustomed to social control in the name of “public health” and to living anonymously in a world populated by other faceless souls?
The answer: Because our civil minders the lockdown state know that the whole “pandemic” is a power-grabbing scam, which is why so many people around the world have taken to the streets to reclaim what little is left of authentic human liberty.
A German extra-parliamentary committee has concluded that that the entire lockdown agenda has been based in the false science of the testing kits that have been developed and marketed precisely to inflate the numbers of those infected with the Wuhan/China/Covid-19/Coronavirus as the pretext for repeated lockdowns and violations of legitimate human liberties:
Reiner Fuellmich,1 who has been a consumer protection trial lawyer in California and Germany2 for 26 years, is a founding member of the German Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee (Außerparlamentarischer Corona Untersuchungsausschuss,3 or ACU),4,5 launched July 10, 2020.
Fuellmich is leading the committee's corona crisis tort case — an international class-action lawsuit that will be filed against those responsible for using fraudulent testing to engineer the appearance of a dangerous pandemic in order to implement economically devastating lockdowns around the world.
He estimates more than 50 other countries will be following suit. In the video above, Patrick Bet-David interviews Fuellmich about how and why the group was formed and the status of this work.
Early on, as Fuellmich started hearing concerns from family and friends in Germany about a new respiratory virus, one particular name kept popping up: professor Christian Drosten, Ph.D., a German virologist.
As head of the Institute of Virology at the University of Bonn Medical Centre, Drosten is best known for developing the first diagnostic test for SARS in 2003. He also developed a diagnostic test for the swine flu,6 and in 2009 helped drum up panic with doomsday prophesies about H1N1.
When COVID-19 initially emerged in early 2020, Drosten kept saying there was no cause for concern. Then, seemingly overnight, he changed his tune, "as though someone had given him a signal." All of a sudden, Drosten was saying that this virus was extremely dangerous and that drastic measures to contain it had to be implemented.
Based on whistleblower testimony, the German government relied on the opinion of Drosten alone when deciding on their pandemic response, which included the lockdown of healthy citizens and the suspension of constitutional rights for an indefinite period of time.
Interestingly, Fuellmich's team recently discovered that Drosten's Ph.D. dissertation is a fraud. It was only created this year when people began investigating his background.
Aside from Drosten, other individuals who have prominent roles include Lothar H. Wieler, the head of the German equivalent of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, head of the World Health Organization and Neil Ferguson of the Imperial College of London.
Unsure of what was going on, Fuellmich contacted an old friend, Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, a former member of the German Congress and the Council of Europe. Wodarg urged him to investigate and suggested some names of experts to look into, such as professor John Ioannidis at Stanford University and professor and Nobel Prize winner Michael Levitt.
The more he investigated the facts available, the more Fuellmich realized COVID-19 was being grossly oversold. Eventually, he started making inquiries to see if there were any other lawyers out there raising questions about the legality of the pandemic and the global response to it.
He discovered that Beate Bahner, an attorney specializing in medical law, had in fact spoken out, arguing that Germany's quarantine measures were unconstitutional. She was arrested and held in a psychiatric ward for a number of days. Needless to say, that wasn't an encouraging start.
Separation of Power Has Been Breached
Disturbingly, while the governments of many nations have the same separation of power as the U.S., where you have separate legislative, judiciary and executive branches, we are now finding that this separation has been breached and nearly destroyed in most places.
Rather than being run by the legislators that we voted into power (and who have the legal power to make law), we're being ruled by the executive branch, such as our local governors, who are creating rules and regulations without having the legal and constitutional power to do so.
They may issue emergency orders for a few days, but really that's the extent of their legal power. After that, the legislature must be brought in. Yet here we are, several months into the pandemic, and local governors and mayors all over the world are still issuing long-term mandatory mask and social distancing orders, many of which call for the arrest of those who don't follow the rules.
As noted by Fuellmich, the judiciary branch must step in, and now, finally, they are starting to do so. In Austria, the constitutional court issued an order November 12, 2020, not only clarifying the separation of powers and stressing that the legislative branch must be involved, but also that there must be a comprehensive discussion where both sides are heard. There are other scientists besides those anointed by the government, and their opinions must be considered as well.
Suing the World Over Faux Pandemic
As noted by Bet-David, there are several important questions that must be answered:
- What caused the pandemic?
- Who started it?
- Who needs to be held accountable?
- In what way must they be held accountable?
- Fuellmich agrees, saying that answering these questions is the reason for why ACU was formed. Governments appear unwilling to investigate the answers to these questions, and that's why he and three other attorneys decided to take on the task of preparing class-action lawsuits. The primary questions the ACU seeks to answer are:
- How dangerous is the virus, really?
- How trustworthy is the PCR test; what does a positive test really mean?
- How much damage do the anti-COVID measures inflict to the economy and the health and well-being of the population?
What Do We Now Know?
The last question is easily answered, Fuellmich says. Evidence shows pandemic measures have caused tremendous harm, killing more people than the virus itself by restricting routine medical care to people with acute and chronic health conditions that have nothing to do with COVID-19.
As for the danger of SARS-CoV-2, we now have plenty of data showing its lethality is on par with the common flu7,8,9,10,11 and that the absolute risk of death is equivalent to the risk of dying in a car accident.12,13 It may be different in terms of symptoms and complications, but the actual lethality is about the same.
According to Fuellmich, even the WHO has now admitted that the mortality of COVID-19 is on par with seasonal influenza. In October 2020, the WHO also reversed its stance on lockdowns, stating they no longer recommend using lockdowns as a primary control method.14
Several experts have also stressed that there is no excess mortality,15,16 meaning we've had an average number of deaths during the pandemic as would normally die anyway. And, if there's no excess mortality, how can there be a lethal pandemic? It doesn't add up.
Fraudulent Testing Is Driving Pandemic Narrative
Of the three questions, the second one is perhaps the most important, as mass testing is driving the narrative that we're in a lethal pandemic. As explained by Fuellmich, reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) tests have several weaknesses that appear to be taken advantage of to create needless fear.
The fact is, the PCR test is not designed to be used as a diagnostic tool as it cannot distinguish between inactive viruses and "live" or reproductive ones.17 This is a crucial point, since inactive and reproductive viruses are not interchangeable in terms of infectivity. If you have a nonreproductive virus in your body, you will not get sick and you cannot spread it to others.
Secondly, many if not most laboratories amplify the RNA collected far too many times, which results in healthy people testing "positive." The video above explains how the PCR test works and how we are interpreting results incorrectly.
In summary, the PCR swab collects RNA from your nasal cavity. This RNA is then reverse transcribed into DNA. However, they must be amplified to become discernible. Each round of amplification is called a cycle, and the number of amplification cycles used by any given test or lab is called a cycle threshold.
When you go above 30 cycles, even insignificant sequences of viral DNA end up being magnified to the point that the test reads positive even if your viral load is extremely low or the virus is inactive and poses no threat to you or anyone else.
According to Fuellmich, the consensus is that anything over 35 cycles is scientifically indefensible. Yet Drosten's test and tests recommended by the World Health Organization are set to 45 cycles.18,19,20
When labs use these excessive cycle thresholds, you end up with a far higher number of positive tests than you would otherwise. At present, and going back a number of months now, what we're really dealing with is a "casedemic,"21,22 meaning an epidemic of false positives.
Remember, in medical terminology, when used accurately, a "case" refers to someone who has symptoms of a disease. By erroneously reporting positive tests as "cases," the pandemic appears magnitudes worse than it actually is. For this reason, Fuellmich and his team are primarily focused on the PCR test issue.
They've taken testimony from a number of well-respected immunologists from around the world, all of whom agree that the PCR test is incapable of telling us anything about the transmission of COVID-19.
The Panic Paper
According to Fuellmich, the sole reason the PCR test is used, and used in an incorrect way, is to create enough fear that no one will question the pandemic measures being put into place and simply do as they're told. He goes on to review the so-called "Panic Paper,"23,24 written by the German Department of the Interior.
This classified paper, which was leaked to the press, reveals there was an intentional plan at the level of the German government to drive people into a panic.
One of the strategies laid out in the paper was to guilt children into compliance, to make them feel responsible "for the tortured death of their parents and grandparents if they do not follow the anti-corona regulations." According to Fuellmich, what we have is a staged PCR test pandemic. It's not a lethal virus pandemic, "and I can prove this in court," he says.
What's the End Game?
As noted by Fuellmich, more and more people around the world are now starting to wake up to the fact that the restrictions put into place under the guise of protecting public health are not going away anytime soon. They're part of a much larger, long-term plan, and the end goal is to usher in a new way of life, devoid of our previous freedoms.
The judicial branch is "the last anchor of democracy," Fuellmich says. He brings up an important point. The WHO, the World Economic Forum and the United Nations are all private corporations, yet they wield tremendous power over the governments of the world.
The World Economic Forum, founded by Klaus Schwab, is incredibly influential and lobbies politicians around the globe. Together, private corporations and politicians have in some instances usurped power from the government and are acting above the law of the land.
Big Tech plays an important part in this usurpation of power. The most important human right around the world is the right to free speech. It's foundational for any democracy. Yet the tech giants have all banded together to censor certain segments of the global population.
"We have to take back the power from them and put it back where it belongs, with the government, and we have to take a really close look at who is in government and who became too close to these corporations," Fuellmich says.
While the full picture is still being put together, Fuellmich and his team have some ideas of who the key players are, at least in Germany. They include the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) of Germany, Drosten, Wieler (the head of the German equivalent of the CDC), Ghebreyesus (head of the WHO), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Wellcome Trust.
These individuals have repeatedly met over the years, including in May 2019, at which time they discussed plans for a coming pandemic. During this meeting, Drosten explained how his PCR test would be used to identify infections — "A blatant lie, as we now know it," Fuellmich says.
These were the same individuals who in 2020 rolled out the narrative for the COVID-19 pandemic and pushed for the global implementation of PCR testing, mask wearing, social distancing and the shut-down of economies around the world.
According to Fuellmich, Germany is at the center of this global fraud, and three of the key criminals in this case appear to be Drosten, Wieler and Ghebreyesus — and the organizations behind them.
That said, he also admits there must be others behind these public marionettes that are pulling the strings. Fuellmich believes that through pretrial discovery, these shadowy figures will eventually come to light. (German Lawyers Initiate Class-Action Coronavirus Litigation.)
Obviously, the same thing is true here in the United States of America, where public health officials and governors such as Andrew Mark Cuomo (New York), Edward Miner Lamont, Jr. (Connecticut), Philip Brian Scott (Vermont), Charles Duane Baker, Jr. (Massachusetts), Philip Murphy (New Jersey), John Edward Sununu (New Hampshire), Gina Marie Raimondo (Rhode Island) Philip Dunton Murphy (New Jersey), Lawrence Edward Hogan, Jr. (Maryland), Thomas Westerman Wolf (Pennsylvania), John Charles Carney, Jr. (Delaware), Ralph Shearer Northam (Virginia), Richard Michael DeWine (Ohio), Jay Robert Pritzker (Illinois), Eric Joseph Holcomb (Indiana), Andrew Graham Beshear (Kentucky), Gretchen Esther Whitmer (Michigan), Timothy James Walz (Minnesota), Anthony Steven Evers (Wisconsin), Michelle Lynn Lujan Grisham (New Mexico), Gavin Christopher Newsom (California), Katherine Brown (Oregon), Jay Robert Inslee (Washington) have revealed their inner authoritarian selves by taking full advantage of the “follow the science” mantra that has been cooked up by the plandemicists to justify making citizens imprison themselves in their homes, shuttering and thus destroying many small businesses, instilling such fear into the hearts of the uninformed and/or those who do not see all things through the supernatural eyes of the soul that they are afraid of their own relatives and acquaintances because of the possibility of a disease that is not as deadly as has been claimed, and of encouraging citizens to spy on each as was commonplace in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), the Soviet Bloc nations during the Cold War (especially in the German Democratic Republic—East Germany—as the secret police, the Stasi, rewarded those who turned in their neighbors for “thought crimes”) and of imposing border restrictions other states in full violation of the interstate commerce clause contained in Section 8, Subsection 8 of Article I of the Constitution of the United States of America.
In this regard, you see, the civil minders of the lockdown state have one set of rules for themselves (“we can do anything we want to do”) and another for those they lock down and seek to shut up for disseminating what they allege to “misinformation” about the disease so that they pass off their own disinformation as a sort of “revealed” truth that obliges us to “follow the science” to the point of accepting a “soft” totalitarianism to avoid the possibility of getting sick from a virus that they have taught the masses to fear:
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Their messaging has been clear: wear a mask, stay 6 feet apart, and most importantly: stay home!
But their actions aren’t living up to the rhetoric, creating a real political problem for some of the most vocal leaders in California’s fight to contain the coronavirus.
First came Gov. Gavin Newsom, who won plaudits for issuing the first statewide stay-at-home order in the U.S. back in March. He broke the state rules when he and his wife were caught dining with 10 others at the posh French Laundry restaurant in Napa in early November with lobbyists and others from numerous different households, sitting close together, mask-less.
San Francisco’s mayor, London Breed, was at the same $350-a-plate restaurant a day later, dining with a San Francisco socialite and six others. Breed has also won accolades for imposing some of the strictest rules in California, keeping coronavirus rates relatively low. Her spokespeople haven’t responded to queries about how many households were there — state rules cap those at three. Her spokesman rubbed salt in the wound by saying she has been trying to support local restaurants. The French Laundry is 60 miles (97 kilometers) out of town.
San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo on Tuesday fessed up to an outdoor Thanksgiving dinner at his parents’ home with people from five different households after tweeting that everyone should just stay home this Thanksgiving. And a Los Angeles County supervisor headed to dinner outside a restaurant hours after she voted against a measure that would have kept outdoor dining open, calling it “a most dangerous situation.”
“We’re all really feeling the strain of this, but there is really that element of hypocrisy. So many who are struggling right now, and then you see them going to these very fancy social affairs and mixing with folks outside their immediate bubble,” said Melinda Jackson, a political science professor at San Jose State University.
Other Democrats have also been caught flouting their own guidance. Austin, Texas, Mayor Steve Adler was forced to apologize Wednesday after a newspaper reported that he was in Mexico with family in November as he urged people to stay home amid worsening coronavirus caseloads, at one point recording a video during the trip in which he told residents back home that now was “not the time to relax.” The mayor of Denver, Michael Hancock, asked residents to “forgive decisions that are borne of my heart and not my head” after traveling to Mississippi for Thanksgiving while he told others to stay home.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany called out what she called “Democrat hypocrisy” Wednesday as she displayed images of the same politicians.
“These Democrats do not follow their own edicts. They act in a way that their own citizens are barred from acting,” she said. (Politicians Don’t Follow Their Own Rules.)
What a surprise.
Leftists who love imposing their misbegotten rules upon others while opposing the nonexistent “imposition” of moral laws that exist in the nature of things and do not depend human acceptance for their binding force or validity act hypocritically.
What a surprise, huh.
This whole thing has been a farce as it was only nine years ago that the administration of Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro tried to manufacture a “swine flu” crisis that they managed to mishandle a they did the bidding of Big Pharma to convince Americans take the poisonous flu vaccination that weakens the body’s immune system and contains various poisons designed to put people on various prescription medications to deal with the “safe” side-effects.
Here is an excerpt from an article of mine on this matter eleven years ago:
The manufactured "swine flu pandemic" (oink, oink) may very well turn out to be an occasion for massive quarantines and/or for the imposition of various penalties (fines, imprisonment, "community service") for failing to take the poisonous "swine flu" vaccine (see H1N1 Swine Flu Facts). What is known for sure at this date is that Big Pharma is profiting handsomely from this manufactured crisis, and it is indeed Big Pharma that is the first beneficiary of Obama's declaration of "national emergency" on Friday, October 23, 2009, as the following commentary makes clear:
To my surprise, on the afternoon of the following day (Saturday), the President of the United States had indeed declared a national emergency due to 1000 reported flu deaths, 100 of them among children. These deaths had occurred over the past eight months.
But 1000 accumulated deaths would be far fewer than the mortality figures the Centers for Disease Control distributes – estimated at 36,000 annual flu deaths. Federal health authorities lump pneumonia deaths among the elderly with flu-related deaths to falsely inflate flu mortality figures. My own guesstimate is that only about 6000 flu-related deaths actually occur each year, but even using this figure for comparison, this year's flu outbreak appears weak. An estimated 20,000 hospitalizations have been reported since this pandemic flu strain began in March of 2009, which amounts to only about 625 hospitalizations per week spread among more than 5 thousand hospitals.
Earlier in the week CBS News reported that, five months after this unique strain of the flu had begun to spread in Mexico in March of 2009, the H1N1 pandemic flu strain only comprised 1–2% of the flu viruses in circulation by July. Yet there were massive preparations being made for a major flu pandemic without sufficient justification. Today the Centers for Disease Control says the H1N1 pandemic flu strain represents 99% of the flu cases that are typed laboratory confirmed. Just exactly which numbers are correct, if any, now come into question.
According to CBS News, only 11 million doses of flu have been administered, with millions more to arrive late, sometime in mid-November. Time Magazine reports about 30 million available doses, so that could mean up to two-thirds of the currently available vaccine is going unused.
A reimbursement crisis, not a health crisis
A follow-up report, published in the Sunday edition of the San Francisco Chronicle, says the emergency declaration issued by The White House has more to do with Medicare and Medicaid regulations dealing with hospitals. With the national emergency declared, hospitals have more flexibility to set up separate or even outdoor treatment areas.
The emergency appears to deal more with hospitals and their ability to get paid by federal health authorities. An article in the New York Times confirms that federal rules do not allow hospitals to establish treatment areas more than 250 yards from emergency rooms. "Tents are 300 yards or more away, typically federal dollars won't go to pay for treatment."
So the emergency appears to be financial – making sure hospitals meet federal requirements so they can get paid by Medicaid or Medicare, rather than any true health crisis.
The San Francisco Chronicle article said "White House officials were quick to note that the emergency declaration does not signify an increase in severity of the national H1N1 outbreak." But the article kept referring to all the deaths, when there appear to be fewer mortal cases of the flu in the past 8 months than prior flu seasons.
Journalists and health officials sound more duplicitous as they attempt to explain the need for the emergency declaration. Here is how the San Francisco Chronicle described it:
"Art Reingold, head of epidemiology at UC Berkeley, said the declaration doesn't mean that the national outbreak is 'any worse than it was yesterday or last week'."
"It's difficult to get the right message across to people," Reingold said. "There's this balance between the flu is important and people should be vaccinated, but you don't want an overreaction."
But once again, according to federal officials, there is little or no vaccine available.
Civil liberties threatened?
An article in the Christian Science Monitor (ASM) was more concerned that such a contrived emergency could be a veiled way to overrun civil liberties. The ASM article quoted Harold Relyea, a specialist in national government with the Congressional Research Service, who said:
"When the President formally declares a national emergency, he may seize property, organize and control the means of production, seize commodities, assign military forces abroad, institute martial law, seize and control all transportation and communication, regulate the operation of private enterprise, restrict travel and, in a variety of ways, control the lives of United States citizens."
Few news sources were critical of the declared emergency, but expect more reporters to express skepticism over its need and to question its intent.
An article in the New Hampshire Union Leader said: "But the way the U.S. government has been handling the new flu strain, technically named H1N1, has been less than reassuring."
What to do now?
Misdirection, overreaction and lack of preparedness by public health officials is a clear indication to the public that they cannot totally rely upon potentially problematic vaccines or anti-viral drugs to defend themselves against the flu.
An ignored approach to controlling infectious disease is to address the immune status of the population. The public should utilize bona fide immune boosters such as vitamin D and vitamin C, and take nutrients that are documented to reduce the duration and severity of the disease which include vitamin E, the trace mineral selenium, the sulfur compound NAC, and elderberry. (The False Flag Flu Emergency.)
Yet it is that the governors listed above are of the sort whom Jorge Mario Bergoglio believes have acted responsibly as “Pope Francis” is willing agent of the agenda to keep us locked down. For reasons that will elaborated upon later, the supposedly “responsible” political officials whose authoritarian actions have been praised by the false “pontiff” share an affinity for the policies of the so-called “People’s Republic of California,” more properly termed Red China, and thus ignore the Chicoms’ responsibility for willing spread of the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronaviru9 as the part of the plandemicists schemes for the “global reset of humanity,” including an reordering of all things globally in the image of the Red Chinese government of surveillance, “social credits,” censorship, and internal border controls.
As readers can see from the next excerpt from Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s op-ed piece in the Friday, November 27, 2020, edition of The New York Times, the Argentine Apostate has jumped at the opportunity to condemn those who have protested needless measures of lockdowns, surveillance, and “contact tracing” with the sort of glee that he has used so frequently to condemn believing Catholics:
Yet some groups protested, refusing to keep their distance, marching against travel restrictions — as if measures that governments must impose for the good of their people constitute some kind of political assault on autonomy or personal freedom! Looking to the common good is much more than the sum of what is good for individuals. It means having a regard for all citizens and seeking to respond effectively to the needs of the least fortunate.
It is all too easy for some to take an idea — in this case, for example, personal freedom — and turn it into an ideology, creating a prism through which they judge everything. (Bergoglio’s Apologia for the Socialist Utopia.)
Comment Number Four:
Jorge Mario Bergoglio is nothing if not an inveterate insult artist. For all his self-made hagiography about how “humble” and “kind” he is as he goes about hugging women, kissing them on their lips, kneels at the feet of imprisoned Mohammedans but not before what he believes to be (if he believes it all, of course, as a matter of sacramental theology) the Real Presence of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the Most Blessed Sacrament, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a low-down dirty, mean, cold, authoritarian, profane holder of grudges who despises anyone who dares put into question the counterfeit church of conciliarism’s revolutionary agenda against the Holy Faith that has now reached the point of openly cooperating with the enemies of Christ the King and of the authentic liberty in which He wants them to sanctify and save their immortal souls as members of His true Church in this passing, mortal vale of tears.
Those who have marched against the lockdowns and other authoritarian measures have done so because they know that this whole plandemic is a scam that is designed to accustom people to more and more governmental control in the name of keeping them “safe” not only from this manufactured crisis but from the endless succession of manufactured crises that will maintain the strict measures even after the gene-altering vaccinations that will make many very sick for the rest of their lives and cause numbers of deaths have been distributed. Statism is a real ideology that is founded on subservience to the civil state at all times and for which even the concept of legitimate human liberty is anathema that cannot be allowed to “coexist” in the new world order of the global reset.
To be sure, human liberty is not an end in and of itself as we are not morally free to do everything that we are physically capable of doing. Pope Leo XIII defined true liberty as follows in Libertas Praestantissimum, June 20, 1888.
Liberty, the highest of natural endowments, being the portion only of intellectual or rational natures, confers on man this dignity — that he is “in the hand of his counsel” and has power over his actions. But the manner in which such dignity is exercised is of the greatest moment, inasmuch as on the use that is made of liberty the highest good and the greatest evil alike depend. Man, indeed, is free to obey his reason, to seek moral good, and to strive unswervingly after his last end. Yet he is free also to turn aside to all other things; and, in pursuing the empty semblance of good, to disturb rightful order and to fall headlong into the destruction which he has voluntarily chosen. The Redeemer of mankind, Jesus Christ, having restored and exalted the original dignity of nature, vouchsafed special assistance to the will of man; and by the gifts of His grace here, and the promise of heavenly bliss hereafter, He raised it to a nobler state. In like manner, this great gift of nature has ever been, and always will be, deservingly cherished by the Catholic Church, for to her alone has been committed the charge of handing down to all ages the benefits purchased for us by Jesus Christ. Yet there are many who imagine that the Church is hostile to human liberty. Having a false and absurd notion as to what liberty is, either they pervert the very idea of freedom, or they extend it at their pleasure to many things in respect of which man cannot rightly be regarded as free.
2. We have on other occasions, and especially in Our encyclical letter lmmortale Dei, in treating of the so-called modern liberties, distinguished between their good and evil elements; and We have shown that whatsoever is good in those liberties is as ancient as truth itself, and that the Church has always most willingly approved and practiced that good: but whatsoever has been added as new is, to tell the plain truth, of a vitiated kind, the fruit of the disorders of the age, and of an insatiate longing after novelties. Seeing, however, that many cling so obstinately to their own opinion in this matter as to imagine these modern liberties, cankered as they are, to be the greatest glory of our age, and the very basis of civil life, without which no perfect government can be conceived, We feel it a pressing duty, for the sake of the common good, to treat separately of this subject.
3. It is with moral liberty, whether in individuals or in communities, that We proceed at once to deal. But, first of all, it will be well to speak briefly of natural liberty; for, though it is distinct and separate from moral liberty, natural freedom is the fountainhead from which liberty of whatsoever kind flows, sua vi suaque sponte. The unanimous consent and judgment of men, which is the trusty voice of nature, recognizes this natural liberty in those only who are endowed with intelligence or reason; and it is by his use of this that man is rightly regarded as responsible for his actions. For, while other animate creatures follow their senses, seeking good and avoiding evil only by instinct, man has reason to guide him in each and every act of his life. Reason sees that whatever things that are held to be good upon earth may exist or may not, and discerning that none of them are of necessity for us, it leaves the will free to choose what it pleases. But man can judge of this contingency, as We say, only because he has a soul that is simple, spiritual, and intellectual — a soul, therefore, which is not produced by matter, and does not depend on matter for its existence; but which is created immediately by God, and, far surpassing the condition of things material, has a life and action of its own — so that, knowing the unchangeable and necessary reasons of what is true and good, it sees that no particular kind of good is necessary to us. When, therefore, it is established that man’s soul is immortal and endowed with reason and not bound up with things material, the foundation of natural liberty is at once most firmly laid.
4. As the Catholic Church declares in the strongest terms the simplicity, spirituality, and immortality of the soul, so with unequaled constancy and publicity she ever also asserts its freedom. These truths she has always taught, and has sustained them as a dogma of faith, and whensoever heretics or innovators have attacked the liberty of man, the Church has defended it and protected this noble possession from destruction. History bears witness to the energy with which she met the fury of the Manicheans and others like them; and the earnestness with which in later years she defended human liberty at the Council of Trent, and against the followers of Jansenius, is known to all. At no time, and in no place, has she held truce with fatalism.
5. Liberty, then, as We have said, belongs only to those who have the gift of reason or intelligence. Considered as to its nature, it is the faculty of choosing means fitted for the end proposed, for he is master of his actions who can choose one thing out of many. Now, since everything chosen as a means is viewed as good or useful, and since good, as such, is the proper object of our desire, it follows that freedom of choice is a property of the will, or, rather, is identical with the will in so far as it has in its action the faculty of choice. But the will cannot proceed to act until it is enlightened by the knowledge possessed by the intellect. In other words, the good wished by the will is necessarily good in so far as it is known by the intellect; and this the more, because in all voluntary acts choice is subsequent to a judgment upon the truth of the good presented, declaring to which good preference should be given. No sensible man can doubt that judgment is an act of reason, not of the will. The end, or object, both of the rational will and of its liberty is that good only which is in conformity with reason.
6. Since, however, both these faculties are imperfect, it is possible, as is often seen, that the reason should propose something which is not really good, but which has the appearance of good, and that the will should choose accordingly. For, as the possibility of error, and actual error, are defects of the mind and attest its imperfection, so the pursuit of what has a false appearance of good, though a proof of our freedom, just as a disease is a proof of our vitality, implies defect in human liberty. The will also, simply because of its dependence on the reason, no sooner desires anything contrary thereto than it abuses its freedom of choice and corrupts its very essence. Thus it is that the infinitely perfect God, although supremely free, because of the supremacy of His intellect and of His essential goodness, nevertheless cannot choose evil; neither can the angels and saints, who enjoy the beatific vision. St. Augustine and others urged most admirably against the Pelagians that, if the possibility of deflection from good belonged to the essence or perfection of liberty, then God, Jesus Christ, and the angels and saints, who have not this power, would have no liberty at all, or would have less liberty than man has in his state of pilgrimage and imperfection. This subject is often discussed by the Angelic Doctor in his demonstration that the possibility of sinning is not freedom, but slavery. It will suffice to quote his subtle commentary on the words of our Lord: “Whosoever committeth sin is the slave of sin.” “Everything,” he says, “is that which belongs to it naturally. When, therefore, it acts through a power outside itself, it does not act of itself, but through another, that is, as a slave. But man is by nature rational. When, therefore, he acts according to reason, he acts of himself and according to his free will; and this is liberty. Whereas, when he sins, he acts in opposition to reason, is moved by another, and is the victim of foreign misapprehensions. Therefore, ‘Whosoever committeth sin is the slave of sin’.” Even the heathen philosophers clearly recognized this truth, especially they who held that the wise man alone is free; and by the term “wise man” was meant, as is well known, the man trained to live in accordance with his nature, that is, in justice and virtue.
7. Such, then, being the condition of human liberty, it necessarily stands in need of light and strength to direct its actions to good and to restrain them from evil. Without this, the freedom of our will would be our ruin. First of all, there must be law; that is, a fixed rule of teaching what is to be done and what is to be left undone. This rule cannot affect the lower animals in any true sense, since they act of necessity, following their natural instinct, and cannot of themselves act in any other way. On the other hand, as was said above, he who is free can either act or not act, can do this or do that, as he pleases, because his judgment precedes his choice. And his judgment not only decides what is right or wrong of its own nature, but also what is practically good and therefore to be chosen, and what is practically evil and therefore to be avoided. In other words, the reason prescribes to the will what it should seek after or shun, in order to the eventual attainment of man’s last end, for the sake of which all his actions ought to be performed. This ordination of reason is called law. In man’s free will, therefore, or in the moral necessity of our voluntary acts being in accordance with reason, lies the very root of the necessity of law. Nothing more foolish can be uttered or conceived than the notion that, because man is free by nature, he is therefore exempt from law. Were this the case, it would follow that to become free we must be deprived of reason; whereas the truth is that we are bound to submit to law precisely because we are free by our very nature. For, law is the guide of man’s actions; it turns him toward good by its rewards, and deters him from evil by its punishments.
8. Foremost in this office comes the natural law, which is written and engraved in the mind of every man; and this is nothing but our reason, commanding us to do right and forbidding sin. Nevertheless, all prescriptions of human reason can have force of law only inasmuch as they are the voice and the interpreters of some higher power on which our reason and liberty necessarily depend. For, since the force of law consists in the imposing of obligations and the granting of rights, authority is the one and only foundation of all law — the power, that is, of fixing duties and defining rights, as also of assigning the necessary sanctions of reward and chastisement to each and all of its commands. But all this, clearly, cannot be found in man, if, as his own supreme legislator, he is to be the rule of his own actions. It follows, therefore, that the law of nature is the same thing as the eternal law, implanted in rational creatures, and inclining them to their right action and end; and can be nothing else but the eternal reason of God, the Creator and Ruler of all the world. To this rule of action and restraint of evil God has vouchsafed to give special and most suitable aids for strengthening and ordering the human will. The first and most excellent of these is the power of His divine grace, whereby the mind can be enlightened and the will wholesomely invigorated and moved to the constant pursuit of moral good, so that the use of our inborn liberty becomes at once less difficult and less dangerous. Not that the divine assistance hinders in any way the free movement of our will; just the contrary, for grace works inwardly in man and in harmony with his natural inclinations, since it flows from the very Creator of his mind and will, by whom all things are moved in conformity with their nature. As the Angelic Doctor points out, it is because divine grace comes from the Author of nature that it is so admirably adapted to be the safeguard of all natures, and to maintain the character, efficiency, and operations of each.
9. What has been said of the liberty of individuals is no less applicable to them when considered as bound together in civil society. For, what reason and the natural law do for individuals. that human law promulgated for their good, does for the citizens of States. Of the laws enacted by men, some are concerned with what is good or bad by its very nature; and they command men to follow after what is right and to shun what is wrong, adding at the same time a suitable sanction. But such laws by no means derive their origin from civil society, because, just as civil society did not create human nature, so neither can it be said to be the author of the good which befits human nature, or of the evil which is contrary to it. Laws come before men live together in society, and have their origin in the natural, and consequently in the eternal, law. The precepts, therefore, of the natural law, contained bodily in the laws of men, have not merely the force of human law, but they possess that higher and more august sanction which belongs to the law of nature and the eternal law. And within the sphere of this kind of laws the duty of the civil legislator is, mainly, to keep the community in obedience by the adoption of a common discipline and by putting restraint upon refractory and viciously inclined men, so that, deterred from evil, they may turn to what is good, or at any rate may avoid causing trouble and disturbance to the State. Now, there are other enactments of the civil authority, which do not follow directly, but somewhat remotely, from the natural law, and decide many points which the law of nature treats only in a general and indefinite way. For instance, though nature commands all to contribute to the public peace and prosperity, whatever belongs to the manner, and circumstances, and conditions under which such service is to be rendered must be determined by the wisdom of men and not by nature herself. It is in the constitution of these particular rules of life, suggested by reason and prudence, and put forth by competent authority, that human law, properly so called, consists, binding all citizens to work together for the attainment of the common end proposed to the community, and forbidding them to depart from this end, and, in so far as human law is in conformity with the dictates of nature, leading to what is good, and deterring from evil.
10. From this it is manifest that the eternal law of God is the sole standard and rule of human liberty, not only in each individual man, but also in the community and civil society which men constitute when united. Therefore, the true liberty of human society does not consist in every man doing what he pleases, for this would simply end in turmoil and confusion, and bring on the overthrow of the State; but rather in this, that through the injunctions of the civil law all may more easily conform to the prescriptions of the eternal law. Likewise, the liberty of those who are in authority does not consist in the power to lay unreasonable and capricious commands upon their subjects, which would equally be criminal and would lead to the ruin of the commonwealth; but the binding force of human laws is in this, that they are to be regarded as applications of the eternal law, and incapable of sanctioning anything which is not contained in the eternal law, as in the principle of all law. Thus, St. Augustine most wisely says: “I think that you can see, at the same time, that there is nothing just and lawful in that temporal law, unless what men have gathered from this eternal law.” If, then, by anyone in authority, something be sanctioned out of conformity with the principles of right reason, and consequently hurtful to the commonwealth, such an enactment can have no binding force of law, as being no rule of justice, but certain to lead men away from that good which is the very end of civil society.
11. Therefore, the nature of human liberty, however it be considered, whether in individuals or in society, whether in those who command or in those who obey, supposes the necessity of obedience to some supreme and eternal law, which is no other than the authority of God, commanding good and forbidding evil. And, so far from this most just authority of God over men diminishing, or even destroying their liberty, it protects and perfects it, for the real perfection of all creatures is found in the prosecution and attainment of their respective ends; but the supreme end to which human liberty must aspire is God. (Pope Leo XIII, Libertas Praestantissimum, June 20, 1888.)
We have been endowed with the gift of liberty to choose the good and to reject evil as we give honor and glory unto God as children of the true Church who are mindful that every one of our words, thoughts, and deeds have an eternal dimension upon which we shall be held to account at the moment of our Particular Judgment. As noted earlier, no one has the moral freedom do what he wants if it be opposed to the Eternal Law and the Natural. Most modern “liberties” are not liberties at all but licentiousness, which can be defined as the use of unrestrained physical freedom to pursue evil, which is inimical to the good of souls and hence of the right ordering of men and their nations. However, what Jorge Mario Bergoglio is denouncing as an ideology is the right use of liberty at time when men recognize a Communist takeover as such and resist it with the means available to them.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio is thus an apologist for well-known Communist tactics of restricting legitimate human liberties in order to accustom people to be able to do nothing other than what the civil state allows, and in this he shows himself to be the antithesis of Pope Leo XIII’s injunction concerning the unjust nature of civil laws that are not based upon the eternal law and/or the natural law but upon the arbitrary of whims of public officials:
Likewise, the liberty of those who are in authority does not consist in the power to lay unreasonable and capricious commands upon their subjects, which would equally be criminal and would lead to the ruin of the commonwealth; but the binding force of human laws is in this, that they are to be regarded as applications of the eternal law, and incapable of sanctioning anything which is not contained in the eternal law, as in the principle of all law. Thus, St. Augustine most wisely says: “I think that you can see, at the same time, that there is nothing just and lawful in that temporal law, unless what men have gathered from this eternal law.” If, then, by anyone in authority, something be sanctioned out of conformity with the principles of right reason, and consequently hurtful to the commonwealth, such an enactment can have no binding force of law, as being no rule of justice, but certain to lead men away from that good which is the very end of civil society.
11. Therefore, the nature of human liberty, however it be considered, whether in individuals or in society, whether in those who command or in those who obey, supposes the necessity of obedience to some supreme and eternal law, which is no other than the authority of God, commanding good and forbidding evil. And, so far from this most just authority of God over men diminishing, or even destroying their liberty, it protects and perfects it, for the real perfection of all creatures is found in the prosecution and attainment of their respective ends; but the supreme end to which human liberty must aspire is God. (Pope Leo XIII, Libertas Praestantissimum, June 20, 1888.)
Does anyone in his right Catholic mind that the lockdown artists named earlier, who are to a man or woman save for Michael DeWine John E. Sununu are completely devoted to the killing of the innocent preborn and the promotion of sodomy while worrying about “climate control” and the measures to “protect the planet,” are at all concerned about the use of liberty to aspire to God?
To coin a phrase, “C’mon, man.”
Liberty an ideology?
Only to those who are threatened by it.
The rest of Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s November 27, 2020, op-ed commentary in The New York Times is simply an apologia for the “better world,” and in this there is a particular irony as Bergoglio’s belief that the “better world” consists of “living differently, which means minding our civil masters not giving up our sins and making reparation for them as though men can by their own unaided powers solve social problems that can be ameliorated by the reform of the lives of men. The Argentine Apostate’s belief in a socialist utopia is premised upon the heresy of Pelagianism, which is truly ironic as he is endlessly criticizing “traditionalists” as being Pelagians who want to live in a “museum”:
Pope Francis: More. Every time I go to visit him I feel like that, I take his hand and get him to talk. He speaks little, slowly, but with the same depth as always, because Benedict’s problem is his knees, not his head. He has a great lucidity, as always. When I hear him speak, I become strong. I hear this history of the Church, which is not something like a museum, tradition. No, tradition is like a root which gives us the juice to grow and so you would become like roots, no! You flower, you grow, you give fruit, and you are the seeds that are the roots of the other. The tradition of the Church is always in motion.
In an interview made by Andrea Monda in L’Osservatore Romano a few days ago (do you read L’Osservatore Romano?) there was a situation of the musician Gustav Mahler that I liked so much. Speaking of tradition, he said that tradition is the guarantee of the future and not the keeper of ashes. It is not a museum. Tradition does not preserve ashes; the nostalgia of fundamentalists [is] to return to the ashes. No, tradition is the roots that guarantee the tree grows, flowers and gives fruit. I repeat with that piece by the Argentine poet I like so much: “All that the tree has in bloom comes from that which it has underground.” (Text of Antipapal Press Conference from Romania.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio does not believe that Catholicism is no kind of foundation for the just social order, and he would be aghast with one of his mocking expressions of disbelief if he would be told that Catholicism, although not a guarantor of social order, is the necessary and indispensable foundation of it. Instead, of course, Bergoglio believes in “man’s” ability to remake the world in his own fallen image, something that men have done a pretty good job for the past five hundred years of making gods of themselves while relegating Christ the King to a relic of the well-forgotten past:
The coronavirus crisis may seem special because it affects most of humankind. But it is special only in how visible it is. There are a thousand other crises that are just as dire, but are just far enough from some of us that we can act as if they don’t exist. Think, for example, of the wars scattered across different parts of the world; of the production and trade in weapons; of the hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing poverty, hunger and lack of opportunity; of climate change. These tragedies may seem distant from us, as part of the daily news that, sadly, fails to move us to change our agendas and priorities. But like the Covid-19 crisis, they affect the whole of humanity.
Look at us now: We put on face masks to protect ourselves and others from a virus we can’t see. But what about all those other unseen viruses we need to protect ourselves from? How will we deal with the hidden pandemics of this world, the pandemics of hunger and violence and climate change?
If we are to come out of this crisis less selfish than when we went in, we have to let ourselves be touched by others’ pain. There’s a line in Friedrich Hölderlin’s “Hyperion” that speaks to me, about how the danger that threatens in a crisis is never total; there’s always a way out: “Where the danger is, also grows the saving power.” That’s the genius in the human story: There’s always a way to escape destruction. Where humankind has to act is precisely there, in the threat itself; that’s where the door opens. (Bergoglio’s Apologia for the Socialist Utopia.)
Comment Number Five:
One thing is clear, of course: Jorge Mario Bergoglio does not believe that sin is more deadly than the coronavirus as he does not believe sin has anything to do with human suffering nor that God uses chastisements such as the plandemic to punish men in order to call them to correction even during times of unnecessary and unjustifiable lockdowns are imposed upon men to accomplish ends at odds with the true temporal good of men, which must be undertaken with a view to advancing man’s Last End, the Beatific Vision of the God the Father, God the Son, and the God the Ghost.
Quite the contrary, of course, Bergoglio, after making sure that he addressed the “global pandemics of hunger and violence and climate change,” the blame each of which he would lay at the feet of unnamed “populists” in the next passage to be excerpted below, relied upon the “wisdom” of Friedrich Holderlin, a man who did not believe in the Sacred Divinity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and whose writings exercised at least some influence on the development of the “dialectical process” by Georg Friedrich Hegel, to note “Where the danger is, also grows the saving power.”
Ladies and gentlemen, you can’t make any of this up.
The man whom most people in the world, save for the teeniest smidgeon of Catholics who have concluded that we have not had a true pope since the death of Pope Pius XII on October 9, 1958, is “Pope Francis” would have the “global” readership of The New York Times believes that human beings have even more power to “save” themselves and their societies during times of “danger” than at other times. This is not only Pelagianism, this borders on practical atheism if not actual atheism. This is why the wretched little demon of a human being from Argentina believes that we must give up our way of “doing things,” meaning that we have get used to governmental control for the “common good of all”:
This is a moment to dream big, to rethink our priorities — what we value, what we want, what we seek — and to commit to act in our daily life on what we have dreamed of.
God asks us to dare to create something new. We cannot return to the false securities of the political and economic systems we had before the crisis. We need economies that give to all access to the fruits of creation, to the basic needs of life: to land, lodging and labor. We need a politics that can integrate and dialogue with the poor, the excluded and the vulnerable, that gives people a say in the decisions that affect their lives. We need to slow down, take stock and design better ways of living together on this earth.
The pandemic has exposed the paradox that while we are more connected, we are also more divided. Feverish consumerism breaks the bonds of belonging. It causes us to focus on our self-preservation and makes us anxious. Our fears are exacerbated and exploited by a certain kind of populist politics that seeks power over society. It is hard to build a culture of encounter, in which we meet as people with a shared dignity, within a throwaway culture that regards the well-being of the elderly, the unemployed, the disabled and the unborn as peripheral to our own well-being.
To come out of this crisis better, we have to recover the knowledge that as a people we have a shared destination. The pandemic has reminded us that no one is saved alone. What ties us to one another is what we commonly call solidarity. Solidarity is more than acts of generosity, important as they are; it is the call to embrace the reality that we are bound by bonds of reciprocity. On this solid foundation we can build a better, different, human future. (Bergoglio’s Apologia for the Socialist Utopia.)
A Lengthy but Necessary Digression to Disabuse Anyone of the Notion that Bergoglio Cares About the Chemical and/or Slaughter of the Innocent Preborn
Well, bully, bully for “Pope Francis.” He mentioned the unborn, but only after having mentioned the elderly, the unemployed and disabled. If the fate of preborn was truly a concern for him, Jorge Mario Bergoglio would not associate himself with the agenda of anti-life, anti-family politicians while castigating those in civil life who do not share the globalist ideological agenda of the new world order. Bergoglio has gone out of his way in his public addresses to avoid placing any kind of emphasis on stopping the chemical and surgical execution of the innocent preborn, and his gratuitous references to the “unborn” and to abortion now and again do not signify that he, a complete supporter of attacks on innocent human life by means of the myth of “brain death” and human organ vivisection and transplantation and “palliative care”/hospice, considers the killing of preborn babies to be a paramount moral issue threatening the very fabric of social life and of the salvation of men.
I can going to belabor this point as it is important to recall just a few of the times in the past eighty-one months when “Pope Francis” has chosen to ignore and/or to deemphasize the importance of opposing laws permitting or expanding the killing of innocent preborn babies, whose plight he did not mention once in his address to the Congress of the United States of America on Thursday, September 24, 2013, the Feast of Our Lady of Ransom, even when he was directly questioned about the matter.
Perhaps it is useful to recall that Jorge Mario Bergoglio did not mention one word about abortion in his pilgrimage to Brazil seventy-seven months ago in July of 2013 for World Hootenanny Day, which he justified as follows during his in-flight interview on his trip from Rio di Janeiro, Brazil, to Rome on July 29, 2013, the Feast of Saint Martha:
Patricia Zorzan: Speaking on behalf of Brazilians. The society has changed, young people have changed, and we see many young people in Brazil. You have spoken to us about abortion, matrimony between persons of the same gender. In Brazil a law has been approved which extends the right of abortion and has allowed matrimony between persons of the same gender. Why didn’t you speak about this? [Repeated in Italian]
Francis: The Church has already expressed herself perfectly on this. It wasn’t necessary to go back to this, nor did I speak about fraud or lies or other things, on which the Church has a clear doctrine.[Repeated in Italian]
Patricia Zorzan: But it’s an issue that interests young people…
[Repeated in Italian]
Francis: Yes, but it wasn’t necessary to talk about that, but about positive things that open the way to youngsters, isn’t that so? Moreover, young people know perfectly well what the position of the Church is.
[Repeated in Italian]
Patricia Zorzan: What is the position of Your Holiness, can you tell us?
[Repeated in Italian]
Francis: That of the Church. I’m a child of the Church. (Press Conference in English.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio would speak as follows about abortion if really was a child of the Catholic Church, which he is not as he expelled himself from her maternal bosom by virtue of holding to one revolutionary Modernist proposition after another:
Those who hold the reins of government should not forget that it is the duty of public authority by appropriate laws and sanctions to defend the lives of the innocent, and this all the more so since those whose lives are endangered and assailed cannot defend themselves. Among whom we must mention in the first place infants hidden in the mother's womb. And if the public magistrates not only do not defend them, but by their laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors or of others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent blood which cried from earth to Heaven. (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 31, 1930.)
“Pope Francis” would not reference the unborn as a throwaway line if had a true concern for the innocent preborn, and Brazil “legalized” a “back door” to the surgical killing of babies only days after Bergoglio had been in the country for World Youth Day from July 21, 2013, to July 28, 2013, and after he had received Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, a Catholic, so lovingly without uttering a word to her publicly about the pending legislation there. So many other like examples can be given of such selective silence on the part of a man who places the alleged “rights of man” and of the “planet” over the immutable precepts contained in the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law.
Two other occasions come to mind now.
First, “Pope Francis” said nothing in 2014 when Belgium legalized child-killing after birth in cases of “deformity” or long-term disabilities. He was deaf, dumb, and mute while the legislation was being debated and after it passed. Here is a reminder of my commentary at the time:
Belgium has become the first country in the world to approve euthanasia for children of all ages after the country’s parliamentarians passed the controversial bill today in a vote of 86 to 44, with 12 MPs abstaining.
Alex Schadenberg, executive director of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, called the move a “form of abandonment.”
Belgium has abandoned the elderly, and now they are saying they will abandon their children,” he told LifeSiteNews.
Schadenberg said the new law is not about ending suffering for children with disabilities, but about expanding the “categories that are eligible for death.”
The bill was first introduced in December 2012.
The law extends to those under the age of 18 who request euthanasia with parental consent. It also applies to younger children requesting euthanasia after a doctor has certified that the child fully understands the implications of the decision.
“This is the horrific logic of euthanasia: Once killing is accepted as an answer to human difficulty and suffering, the power of sheer logic dictates that there is no bottom,” wrote Wesley J. Smith about the law.
The proposed law had been protested by a number of groups that said the existing 2002 euthanasia legislation has been an unmitigated disaster.
Schadenberg said he was not surprised to see the bill pass, since he said the entire euthanasia project in Belgium is being “pushed blindly” by a government that has ignored all the abuses currently taking place within existing euthanasia laws.
“Euthanasia has been really out of control in Belgium for quite some time. We know from studies that about 32 percent of euthanasia deaths go without requests. Over half of euthanasia deaths are not reported,” he said.
Schadenberg said the new law will only make it easier for doctors to indiscriminately and without repercussion end the lives of the most vulnerable deemed unfit to live. (Belgium Parliament passes law allowing children to be euthanized.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio said nothing.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio did nothing.
Similarly, the Argentine Apostate neither said nor did anything to oppose the referendum in Ireland to permit unrestricted baby-killing before the vote and, of course, he said nothing about the passage of the referendum even when he visited the Land of Saints and Scholars just two months later for the World Meeting of Families.
Here is a review of the conciliar Vatican’s actions before the Irish referendum on May 25, 2018, and what happened thereafter, starting first with the counterfeit church of conciliarism’s hands-off approach in 2017 on the referendum on repealing the Eighth Amendment to the Irish Constitution that was to take place the following year:
The Pope and the Eighth in 2018
The year that Pope Francis is set to visit, Ireland is likely to hold a referendum on the Eighth Amendment.
Members of the Catholic Church across the world have constantly held a pro-life view on debates about abortion – that stance is no different here, as Archbishop of Dublin Diarmuid Martin said on RTÉ earlier this month.
But Father Bartlett says that the Pope’s visit is not about the issues in Ireland, it’s about the World Meeting of Families – which won’t be focused on the repeal or retention of the Eighth Amendment.
“That’s a matter that the Irish Bishops will deal with directly as it arises – they will make their voice heard and others will [too]. The call is for a very respectable debate.” (Jorge's Upcoming Journey to Ireland.)
Interjection Number One:
What is there to debate?
The binding precepts of the Fifth Commandment are perfectly clear. No debate is possible, and no vote of the “people” can ever make legitimate something that is illegitimate of its nature, repugnant to God and thus injurious of the eternal good of souls and the temporal good of their nations.
Everything the counterfeit church of conciliarism is subject to “debate” and “reconsideration” as “pastoral need require,” euphemisms that the conciliarists use to mask Modernism’s condemned and philosophically absurd percept of dogmatic relativism.
Back to the 2017 article:
Even still, there’s been a huge shift in what family is in Ireland. Between the last Papal visit to Ireland in October 1979, the legalisation of divorce and the 2015 Yes Equality campaign have completely altered the idea of what a family can be in Ireland.
The Church took a stance against legalising gay marriage, which was passed in 2015 – so will gay couples and their children be allowed to attend the World Meeting of Families events next year?
“Well the event is open to everyone, we will not be asking people what their family circumstances are, should they wish to come.
We hope that everybody who comes acknowledges that this is an event that reflects the Catholic understanding and approach to marriage which includes the call to be inclusive and understanding.”
He says that although the scriptures teach of what the ideal family unit is, Pope Francis has said that “we all fall short of ideals”.
“As Pope Francis reminds us, no family dropped from heaven perfectly formed. There are lots of heroic, incredible families who are struggling against the most incredible odds, and that has to be celebrated and acknowledged, even if they don’t live up to what the Church might suggest is the ultimate ideal.
“Just because we don’t live up to an ideal, doesn’t mean we are excluded,” Bartlett says.
When asked what that ideal is, Bartlett said that the “earthly reality” is that all families face difficulties.
“But no matter what shape those challenges take and how that impacts on the form of the family, the key message of this event is, we should still be able to celebrate the genuine love, care, and solidarity that is at the heart of all those family experiences.” (Jorge's Upcoming Journey to Ireland.)
Interjection Number Two:
Those who are in states of Mortal Sin are excluded from the Kingdom of God.
Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was very direct about the fact one can be excluded from entering Heaven and thus possessing the glory of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity:
 At that hour the disciples came to Jesus, saying: Who thinkest thou is the greater in the kingdom of heaven?  And Jesus calling unto him a little child, set him in the midst of them,  And said: Amen I say to you, unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.  Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, he is the greater in the kingdom of heaven.  And he that shall receive one such little child in my name, receiveth me.
 But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea.  Woe to the world because of scandals. For it must needs be that scandals come: but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh.  And if thy hand, or thy foot scandalize thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee. It is better for thee to go into life maimed or lame, than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into everlasting fire.  And if thy eye scandalize thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee. It is better for thee having one eye to enter into life, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.  See that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 18: 1-10.)
 Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat.  How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!  Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
 By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the evil tree bringeth forth evil fruit.  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree bring forth good fruit.  Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire.  Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them.
 Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.  Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have not we prophesied in thy name, and cast out devils in thy name, and done many miracles in thy name?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.  Every one therefore that heareth these my words, and doth them, shall be likened to a wise man that built his house upon a rock,  And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house, and it fell not, for it was founded on a rock.
 And every one that heareth these my words, and doth them not, shall be like a foolish man that built his house upon the sand,  And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house, and it fell, and great was the fall thereof.  And it came to pass when Jesus had fully ended these words, the people were in admiration at his doctrine.  For he was teaching them as one having power, and not as the scribes and Pharisees. (Matthew 7: 13-29.)
It is the will of God the Father that we keep His Commandments, something that Saint John the Evangelist tells us very directly is at the very heart of what constitutes true love of God:
Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ, is born of God. And every one that loveth him who begot, loveth him also who is born of him.  In this we know that we love the children of God: when we love God, and keep his commandments.  For this is the charity of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not heavy. (John 5: 1-3.)
The keeping of Ten Commandments and all the precepts of the Natural Law is not an “impossibility” nor some kind of ethereal, if not unreachable, unrealistic “ideal.” Yet it is that Jorge Mario Bergoglio and conciliar revolutionary wrecking crew of apostates believe that such is the case, making a liar of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and consigning the Spiritual Works of Mercy, listed just below, to the dustbin of history, “artifacts” that belong in a “museum” of the past:
- To instruct the ignorant.
- To counsel the doubtful.
- To admonish sinners.
- To bear wrongs patiently;
- To forgive offences willingly;
- To comfort the afflicted;
- To pray for the living and the dead.
God does not command the impossible. The graces won for us by His Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, by the shedding of every single drop of His Most Precious Blood during His Passion and Death on the wood of the Holy Cross on Good Friday that are poured out into our souls by the working of God the Holy Ghost as they flow through the loving hands of Our Lady, the Mediatrix of All Graces, are sufficient for us to resist temptation and to grow in sanctity. To obey the laws of God is never “impossible,” and to treat such obedience as a burdensome or impossible “ideal” is show oneself possessed of the Modernist spirit of agnosticism that was critiqued and condemned by Pope Saint Pius X in Pascendi Dominici Gregis:
Let us see how the Modernist conducts his apologetics. The aim he sets before himself is to make one who is still without faith attain that experience of the Catholic religion which, according to the system, is the sole basis of faith. There are two ways open to him, the objective and the subjective. The first of them starts from agnosticism. It tends to show that religion, and especially the Catholic religion, is endowed with such vitality as to compel every psychologist and historian of good faith to recognize that its history hides some element of the unknown. To this end it is necessary to prove that the Catholic religion, as it exists today, is that which was founded by Jesus Christ; that is to say, that it is nothing else than the progressive development of the germ which He brought into the world. Hence it is imperative first of all to establish what this germ was, and this the Modernist claims to he able to do by the following formula: Christ announced the coming of the kingdom of God, which was to be realized within a brief lapse of time and of which He was to become the Messias, the divinely-given founder and ruler. Then it must be shown how this germ, always immanent and permanent in the Catholic religion, has gone on slowly developing in the course of history, adapting itself successively to the different circumstances through which it has passed, borrowing from them by vital assimilation all the doctrinal, cultural, ecclesiastical forms that served its purpose; whilst, on the other hand, it surmounted all obstacles, vanquished all enemies, and survived all assaults and all combats. Anyone who well and duly considers this mass of obstacles, adversaries, attacks, combats, and the vitality and fecundity which the Church has shown throughout them all, must admit that if the laws of evolution are visible in her life they fail to explain the whole of her history — the unknown rises forth from it and presents itself before Us. Thus do they argue, not perceiving that their determination of the primitive germ is only an a priori assumption of agnostic and evolutionist philosophy, and that the germ itself has been gratuitously defined so that it may fit in with their contention.
36. But while they endeavor by this line of reasoning to prove and plead for the Catholic religion, these new apologists are more than willing to grant and to recognize that there are in it many things which are repulsive. Nay, they admit openly, and with ill-concealed satisfaction, that they have found that even its dogma is not exempt from errors and contradictions. They add also that this is not only excusable but — curiously enough — that it is even right and proper. In the Sacred Books there are many passages referring to science or history where, according to them, manifest errors are to he found. But, they say, the subject of these books is not science or history, but only religion and morals. In them history and science serve only as a species of covering to enable the religious and moral experiences wrapped Up in them to penetrate more readily among the masses. The masses understood science and history as they are expressed in these books, and it is clear that the expression of science and history in a more perfect form would have proved not so much a help as a hindrance. Moreover, they add, the Sacred Books, being essentially religious, are necessarily quick with life. Now life has its own truths and its own logic — quite different from rational truth aand rational logic, belonging as they do to a different order, viz., truth of adaptation and of proportion both with what they call the medium in which it lives and with the end for which it lives. Finally, the Modernists, losing all sense of control, go so far as to proclaim as true and legitimate whatever is explained by life. (Pope Saint Pius X, Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907.)
In other words, everything that exists is true and legitimate merely because of its existence, which means in contemporary terms, according to the conciliarists, that “families” come in different shapes and sizes, including those who do not have an “ideal” form according to the “closed-in” view of “black and white morality” that does not take into account how people actually live.
Pope Pius XII warned Bergoglio’s own Society of Jesus in 1957 about their support of such a false belief:
The more serious cause, however, was the movement in high Jesuit circles to modernize the understanding of the magisterium by enlarging the freedom of Catholics, especially scholars, to dispute its claims and assertions. Jesuit scholars had already made up their minds that the Catholic creeds and moral norms needed nuance and correction. It was for this incipient dissent that the late Pius XII chastised the Jesuits’ 30th General Congregation one year before he died (1957). What concerned Pius XII most in that admonition was the doctrinal orthodoxy of Jesuits. Information had reached him that the Society’s academics (in France and Germany) were bootlegging heterodox ideas. He had long been aware of contemporary theologians who tried “to withdraw themselves from the Sacred Teaching authority and are accordingly in danger of gradually departing from revealed truth and of drawing others along with them in error” (Humani generis).
In view of what has gone on recently in Catholic higher education, Pius XII’s warnings to Jesuits have a prophetic ring to them. He spoke then of a “proud spirit of free inquiry more proper to a heterodox mentality than to a Catholic one”; he demanded that Jesuits not “tolerate complicity with people who would draw norms for action for eternal salvation from what is actually done, rather than from what should be done.” He continued, “It should be necessary to cut off as soon as possible from the body of your Society” such “unworthy and unfaithful sons.” Pius obviously was alarmed at the rise of heterodox thinking, worldly living, and just plain disobedience in Jesuit ranks, especially at attempts to place Jesuits on a par with their Superiors in those matters which pertained to Faith or Church order (The Pope Speaks, Spring 1958, pp. 447-453). (Monsignor George A. Kelly, Ph.D.,The Catholic College: Death, Judgment, Resurrection. See also the full Latin text of Pope Pius XII's address to the thirtieth general congregation of the Society of Jesus at page 806 of the Acta Apostolicae Sedis for 1957: AAS 49 . One will have to scroll down to page 806.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio was trained by the very sort of revolutionaries whose false moral theology was condemned by Pope Pius XII in 1957, and it is this false moral theology, which is nothing other than Judeo-Masonic moral relativism, which itself is the product of the Protestant Revolution’s theological relativism. Modernism is, of course, the synthesis of all heresies, which are designed to disrupt man's relationship to God as He has revealed Himself to us through His true Church, the Catholic Church, and thus sow the seeds of the kind of social chaos, anarchy and violence that will lead one day to the broad popular acceptance of the Antichrist when he emerges on the scene as one who will restore "order" and perhaps even make nations "great" again.
We see the fruit of this disruption we great clarity in Ireland and around the world.
Back to the final excerpt from the 2017 article:
The number of Catholics in Ireland has been steadily decreasing over the past few years, according to Census figures. In 2016, there were 3,729,115 Roman Catholics in Ireland, which makes up 78% of the population (down from 84% in the last census in 2011).
Bartlett says that some of the challenges that remain with the Church include that some people view the Church as a “caricature” of how the Church used to operate; another is reaching people in an increasingly active and busy world.
But he says that a large number of people in communities across the country still rely on priests for “help, advice and support”.
I would say that whenever you listen to the radio, to the television, to the news, whenever there’s a tragedy or difficulty, one of the first people that the local community turn to is their priest and that the media even turn to for comment and understanding about what’s happening.
He says that innovations such as the drive-thru Ash Wednesday and confessionals held in shopping centres are ways in which priests are looking to reach out to people in an increasingly busy, modernised Irish society.
An essential part of that, he says, is to bring up to date an organisation that has existed for thousands of years.
“When people talk about the past, there’s a danger that people think that the Church wants to go back to the past. That is not what the Church wants to do, I think we have to respect the past but essentially learn from it and focus on building a better future.” (Jorge's Upcoming Journey to Ireland.)
A better world?
Conciliarism is deadly to souls and thus to the temporal good of nations. The Irish may want to vote in favor of repeal the Eighth Amendment of their country’s constitution in nine days precisely because they have been robbed of the sensus Catholicus by revolutionaries who hate true Catholic, Faith, Worship and Morals.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio did not reference the successful repeal of the Irish Constitution’s Eighth Amendment on May 25, 2018, Whit Friday, when he visited Ireland three months later for the “World Meeting of Families, to which he had dispatched the homophilic Father James Martin, S.J, to make sure that was a “welcome mat” ready for “every” kind of “family,” although he did make one of his now infamous gratuitous references to the “unborn” in his “homily” at the staging of the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service on August 26, 2018, of the sort that was used in his November 27, 2020, op-ed commentary in The New York Times:
But let us also humbly acknowledge that, if we are honest with ourselves, we too can find the teachings of Jesus hard. How difficult it is always to forgive those who hurt us; how challenging always to welcome the migrant and the stranger; how painful joyfully to bear disappointment, rejection, betrayal; how inconvenient to protect the rights of the most vulnerable, the unborn or the elderly, who seem to impinge upon our own sense of freedom. (Bergoglio “homily” in Phoenix Park, Dubin, Ireland, August 26, 2018.)
Please spare me any plaudits for “Pope Francis” because of his mention of the unborn in his November 27, 2020, op-ed commentary in The New York Times. The man is a statist fraud.
Pardon the lengthy digression. However, it would be irresponsible, in my view, to ignore Bergoglio’s gratuitous references to a moral issue that has grave ramifications for the good of men and their nations.
Bergoglio the Annihilator of Legitimate Human Freedom in Search of the “Better World”
What Jorge Mario Bergoglio really cares about and desires is the annihilation of human freedom to build a “better, different, human future” that will subservient to the dictates of their civil masters, those who do not even abide by their own rules as they really see themselves as a superior caste of beings who make short work of the lives and the livelihoods of the masses to champion a “new world” in which individuals will simply cogs who toil in behalf of “a better world,” something that just happens to coincide with their own Marxist-Leninist ideological proclivities, something that just happened to be condemned by Pope Pius XI in Divini Redemptoris, March 19, 1939:
The doctrine of modern Communism, which is often concealed under the most seductive trappings, is in substance based on the principles of dialectical and historical materialism previously advocated by Marx, of which the theoricians of bolshevism claim to possess the only genuine interpretation. According to this doctrine there is in the world only one reality, matter, the blind forces of which evolve into plant, animal and man. Even human society is nothing but a phenomenon and form of matter, evolving in the same way. By a law of inexorable necessity and through a perpetual conflict of forces, matter moves towards the final synthesis of a classless society. In such a doctrine, as is evident, there is no room for the idea of God; there is no difference between matter and spirit, between soul and body; there is neither survival of the soul after death nor any hope in a future life. Insisting on the dialectical aspect of their materialism, the Communists claim that the conflict which carries the world towards its final synthesis can be accelerated by man. Hence they endeavor to sharpen the antagonisms which arise between the various classes of society. Thus the class struggle with its consequent violent hate and destruction takes on the aspects of a crusade for the progress of humanity. On the other hand, all other forces whatever, as long as they resist such systematic violence, must be annihilated as hostile to the human race.
10. Communism, moreover, strips man of his liberty, robs human personality of all its dignity, and removes all the moral restraints that check the eruptions of blind impulse. There is no recognition of any right of the individual in his relations to the collectivity; no natural right is accorded to human personality, which is a mere cog-wheel in the Communist system. In man's relations with other individuals, besides, Communists hold the principle of absolute equality, rejecting all hierarchy and divinely-constituted authority, including the authority of parents. What men call authority and subordination is derived from the community as its first and only font. Nor is the individual granted any property rights over material goods or the means of production, for inasmuch as these are the source of further wealth, their possession would give one man power over another. Precisely on this score, all forms of private property must be eradicated, for they are at the origin of all economic enslavement.
11. Refusing to human life any sacred or spiritual character, such a doctrine logically makes of marriage and the family a purely artificial and civil institution, the outcome of a specific economic system. There exists no matrimonial bond of a juridico-moral nature that is not subject to the whim of the individual or of the collectivity. Naturally, therefore, the notion of an indissoluble marriage-tie is scouted. Communism is particularly characterized by the rejection of any link that binds woman to the family and the home, and her emancipation is proclaimed as a basic principle. She is withdrawn from the family and the care of her children, to be thrust instead into public life and collective production under the same conditions as man. The care of home and children then devolves upon the collectivity. Finally, the right of education is denied to parents, for it is conceived as the exclusive prerogative of the community, in whose name and by whose mandate alone parents may exercise this right.
12. What would be the condition of a human society based on such materialistic tenets? It would be a collectivity with no other hierarchy than that of the economic system. It would have only one mission: the production of material things by means of collective labor, so that the goods of this world might be enjoyed in a paradise where each would "give according to his powers" and would "receive according to his needs." Communism recognizes in the collectivity the right, or rather, unlimited discretion, to draft individuals for the labor of the collectivity with no regard for their personal welfare; so that even violence could be legitimately exercised to dragoon the recalcitrant against their wills. In the Communistic commonwealth morality and law would be nothing but a derivation of the existing economic order, purely earthly in origin and unstable in character. In a word. the Communists claim to inaugurate a new era and a new civilization which is the result of blind evolutionary forces culminating in a humanity without God.
13. When all men have finally acquired the collectivist mentality in this Utopia of a really classless society, the political State, which is now conceived by Communists merely as the instrument by which the proletariat is oppressed by the capitalists, will have lost all reason for its existence and will "wither away." However, until that happy consummation is realized, the State and the powers of the State furnish Communism with the most efficacious and most extensive means for the achievement of its goal.
14. Such, Venerable Brethren, is the new gospel which bolshevistic and atheistic Communism offers the world as the glad tidings of deliverance and salvation! It is a system full of errors and sophisms. It is in opposition both to reason and to Divine Revelation. It subverts the social order, because it means the destruction of its foundations; because it ignores the true origin and purpose of the State; because it denies the rights, dignity and liberty of human personality.
15. How is it possible that such a system, long since rejected scientifically and now proved erroneous by experience, how is it, We ask, that such a system could spread so rapidly in all parts of the world? The explanation lies in the fact that too few have been able to grasp the nature of Communism. The majority instead succumb to its deception, skillfully concealed by the most extravagant promises. By pretending to desire only the betterment of the condition of the working classes, by urging the removal of the very real abuses chargeable to the liberalistic economic order, and by demanding a more equitable distribution of this world's goods (objectives entirely and undoubtedly legitimate), the Communist takes advantage of the present world-wide economic crisis to draw into the sphere of his influence even those sections of the populace which on principle reject all forms of materialism and terrorism. And as every error contains its element of truth, the partial truths to which We have referred are astutely presented according to the needs of time and place, to conceal, when convenient, the repulsive crudity and inhumanity 540 of Communistic principles and tactics. Thus the Communist ideal wins over many of the better minded members of the community. These in turn become the apostles of the movement among the younger intelligentsia who are still too immature to recognize the intrinsic errors of the system. The preachers of Communism are also proficient in exploiting racial antagonisms and political divisions and oppositions. They take advantage of the lack of orientation characteristic of modern agnostic science in order to burrow into the universities, where they bolster up the principles of their doctrine with pseudo-scientific arguments.
16. If we would explain the blind acceptance of Communism by so many thousands of workmen, we must remember that the way had been already prepared for it by the religious and moral destitution in which wage-earners had been left by liberal economics. Even on Sundays and holy days, labor-shifts were given no time to attend to their essential religious duties. No one thought of building churches within convenient distance of factories, nor of facilitating the work of the priest. On the contrary, laicism was actively and persistently promoted, with the result that we are now reaping the fruits of the errors so often denounced by Our Predecessors and by Ourselves. It can surprise no one that the Communistic fallacy should be spreading in a world already to a large extent de-Christianized. (Pope Pius XI, Divini Redemptoris, March 19, 1937.)
This is the kind of world that Jorge Mario Bergoglio wants to create in his own Modernist image in full cooperation with the lords of Modernity with whom he shares a common agenda of reducing the “past” to ashes so that the new and “improved” socialist man could arise to serve the needs of the many while those who cling to the past must be pummeled and vaccinated into submission.
Also, of course, just in case readers missed the false “pope’s” not-so-oblique reference to President Donald John Trump earlier in his op-ed commentary, Bergoglio pretty much spelled things out with his self-serving condemnation of “populist politics.” Moreover, the belief that “solidarity” is the “solid foundation” is about as solid a piece of evidence that one can find to prove that this warped human being and Jesuit revolutionary believes that the Catholic Faith has no role to play anywhere in public life at any time for any reason, a false belief that leaves society at the nonexistent mercy of the merciless.
Pope Pius XI, however, explained in his first encyclical letter, Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio, December 23, 1922, and in Quas Primas, December 11, 1925, that Catholicism is the only sure and solid foundation for human society, nothing else:
Thus the empire of our Redeemer embraces all men. To use the words of Our immortal predecessor, Pope Leo XIII: "His empire includes not only Catholic nations, not only baptized persons who, though of right belonging to the Church, have been led astray by error, or have been cut off from her by schism, but also all those who are outside the Christian faith; so that truly the whole of mankind is subject to the power of Jesus Christ." Nor is there any difference in this matter between the individual and the family or the State; for all men, whether collectively or individually, are under the dominion of Christ. In him is the salvation of the individual, in him is the salvation of society. "Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given to men whereby we must be saved." He is the author of happiness and true prosperity for every man and for every nation. "For a nation is happy when its citizens are happy. What else is a nation but a number of men living in concord?" If, therefore, the rulers of nations wish to preserve their authority, to promote and increase the prosperity of their countries, they will not neglect the public duty of reverence and obedience to the rule of Christ. What We said at the beginning of Our Pontificate concerning the decline of public authority, and the lack of respect for the same, is equally true at the present day. "With God and Jesus Christ," we said, "excluded from political life, with authority derived not from God but from man, the very basis of that authority has been taken away, because the chief reason of the distinction between ruler and subject has been eliminated. The result is that human society is tottering to its fall, because it has no longer a secure and solid foundation."
When once men recognize, both in private and in public life, that Christ is King, society will at last receive the great blessings of real liberty, well-ordered discipline, peace and harmony. Our Lord's regal office invests the human authority of princes and rulers with a religious significance; it ennobles the citizen's duty of obedience. It is for this reason that St. Paul, while bidding wives revere Christ in their husbands, and slaves respect Christ in their masters, warns them to give obedience to them not as men, but as the vicegerents of Christ; for it is not meet that men redeemed by Christ should serve their fellow-men. "You are bought with a price; be not made the bond-slaves of men." If princes and magistrates duly elected are filled with the persuasion that they rule, not by their own right, but by the mandate and in the place of the Divine King, they will exercise their authority piously and wisely, and they will make laws and administer them, having in view the common good and also the human dignity of their subjects. The result will be a stable peace and tranquillity, for there will be no longer any cause of discontent. Men will see in their king or in their rulers men like themselves, perhaps unworthy or open to criticism, but they will not on that account refuse obedience if they see reflected in them the authority of Christ God and Man. Peace and harmony, too, will result; for with the spread and the universal extent of the kingdom of Christ men will become more and more conscious of the link that binds them together, and thus many conflicts will be either prevented entirely or at least their bitterness will be diminished.
If the kingdom of Christ, then, receives, as it should, all nations under its way, there seems no reason why we should despair of seeing that peace which the King of Peace came to bring on earth -- he who came to reconcile all things, who came not to be ministered unto but to minister, who, though Lord of all, gave himself to us as a model of humility, and with his principal law united the precept of charity; who said also: "My yoke is sweet and my burden light." Oh, what happiness would be Ours if all men, individuals, families, and nations, would but let themselves be governed by Christ! "Then at length," to use the words addressed by our predecessor, Pope Leo XIII, twenty-five years ago to the bishops of the Universal Church, "then at length will many evils be cured; then will the law regain its former authority; peace with all its blessings be restored. Men will sheathe their swords and lay down their arms when all freely acknowledge and obey the authority of Christ, and every tongue confesses that the Lord Jesus Christ is in the glory of God the Father." (Pope Pius XI, Quas Primas, December 11, 1925.)
These were words written by a man who was a true pope and, who despite his failures in the area of diplomacy regarding the Cristeros War in Mexico, was a firm teacher of the immutable doctrine of the Social Reign of Christ the King who warned us in Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio about those who seek to “save” what is left from the existing ruins:
27. There is over and above the absence of peace and the evils attendant on this absence, another deeper and more profound cause for present-day conditions. This cause was even beginning to show its head before the War and the terrible calamities consequent on that cataclysm should have proven a remedy for them if mankind had only taken the trouble to understand the real meaning of those terrible events. In the Holy Scriptures we read: "They that have forsaken the Lord, shall be consumed." (Isaias i, 28) No less well known are the words of the Divine Teacher, Jesus Christ, Who said: "Without me you can do nothing" (John xv, 5) and again, "He that gathereth not with me, scattereth." (Luke xi, 23)
28. These words of the Holy Bible have been fulfilled and are now at this very moment being fulfilled before our very eyes. Because men have forsaken God and Jesus Christ, they have sunk to the depths of evil. They waste their energies and consume their time and efforts in vain sterile attempts to find a remedy for these ills, but without even being successful in saving what little remains from the existing ruin. It was a quite general desire that both our laws and our governments should exist without recognizing God or Jesus Christ, on the theory that all authority comes from men, not from God. Because of such an assumption, these theorists fell very short of being able to bestow upon law not only those sanctions which it must possess but also that secure basis for the supreme criterion of justice which even a pagan philosopher like Cicero saw clearly could not be derived except from the divine law. (Pope Pius XI, Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio, December 23, 1922.)
Paragraph number twenty-eight above says it all:
They waste their energies and consume their time and efforts in vain sterile attempts to find a remedy for these ills, but without even being successful in saving what little remains from the existing ruin. (Pope Pius XI, Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio, December 23, 1922.)
Similarly, they waste their energies and consume their time and efforts in vain sterile attempts to justify Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s services in behalf of Judeo-Masonry/Marxism-Leninism’s mythical “better world” that is premised upon delusions that have always led to the misery of human slaver, whose bounds are being expanded beyond all known limits thanks to technological “advances” that are designed to censor us, vaccinate us with vaccines that change our genetic codes and will cause many people to suffer with disabling illnesses for the rest of their lives, and the willing complicity of an agent of Antichrist who was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on December 16, 1936. Bergoglio people will never be able to save what little remains of the existing ruins of the world founded upon the deceptions of Machiavellianism, Protestantism and Judeo-Masonry that have made possible the triumph Communism in Machiavelli in fact even if not labeled as such juridically with the full, active, and conscious participation of the lords of conciliarism.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio is doing the bidding of the effete elitists of the West as he seeks also to curry favor with Xi Jinping of Red China, where the Chicoms are demonstrating their spirit of “reconciliation” with underground Catholics who have suffered in their fealty to men whom they have believed to be true popes but who have been selling them out little by little until the Great Bergoglio-Parolin betrayal of 2018, a subject that will be explored in part two of this commentary in a few days.
Suffice it to say for the moment, however, that, blinded by the Judeo-Masonic naturalism with which his false church has been “reconciled” by means of the “Second” Vatican Council and the magisteria of the conciliar “popes,” Jorge Mario Bergoglio thinks mostly in economic, materialistic terms, not in terms of the eternal good of
Alas, the principal evil in the world today is conciliarism’s corruption of Catholicism that has caused hundreds upon hundreds of millions of Catholics to become steeped in lives of unrepentant sin, thereby consigning whatever children they bring into the world to lives of emptiness and despair that last into old age and might well lead to the eternal perdition of their immortal souls.
Conciliarism has celebrated and institutionalized sins against the First, Second and Third Commandments, erasing all traces of what constitutes a true love for the true God of Divine Revelation and replacing it nothing other than pagan projections of what its false "popes" and “bishops: believe should be God’s attributes, which includes, they have taught, the heresy of “religious liberty” as the “necessary” means of increasing the world's acceptance of false religions as a means of pleasing Him and instruments by which a "better" and more "just" world can be built.
Conciliarism has celebrated the Protestant Revolution's overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King that was later institutionalized by the organized forces of naturalism that can be referred to as Judeo-Masonry, making possible the rise of the monster, anti-Incarnational civil state of Modernity that has attacked the integrity of the family by numerous nefarious devices, including inculcating secularism in what are called “public schools” and by promoting all manner of sins, including those that cry out to Heaven for vengeance, under cover of the civil law in the name of “respecting the consciences” of citizens.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio is utterly blind to the fact that those “moral issues” that he says the Catholic Church has been “obsessing” about to the point of being on the verge of collapsing like a “house of cards” are directly related to the material privation and loneliness he says are the world's greatest evils.
They are not.
They are the consequences of the overthrow of the Sovereignty of God over the sanctity and fecundity of marriage by means of contraception and by means of surgical abortions. The world is not "overpopulated." It has been de-populated by the chemical and surgical execution of the innocent preborn in their mothers' wombs on a daily basis throughout the world, thus reducing the size of families and reducing the number of children to glorify God here on earth as members of the Church Militant and thus of enjoying the glory of His Beatific Vision for all eternity in Heaven. This is the greatest poverty that the world has ever known: the poverty of souls to know, to love and to serve God as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His Catholic Church so as to be happy with Him for all eternity in Heaven.
Moreover, Judeo-Masonry's systematic attack on the innocence and the purity of the young has grown bolder and bolder over the past several centuries, and it is an attack that has been compounded by the counterfeit church of conciliarism's endorsement and institutionalizing of that which was forbidden by Pope Pius XI in Divini Illius Magistri, December 31, 1929: explicit classroom instruction in matters pertaining to the Sixth and Ninth Commandments.
Pope Leo XIII wrote in Humanum Genus, April 20, 1884, of the Freemasonry's organized efforts to undermine the innocence and purity of the young, especially in public schools:
Wherefore we see that men are publicly tempted by the many allurements of pleasure; that there are journals and pamphlets with neither moderation nor shame; that stage-plays are remarkable for license; that designs for works of art are shamelessly sought in the laws of a so-called verism; that the contrivances of a soft and delicate life are most carefully devised; and that all the blandishments of pleasure are diligently sought out by which virtue may be lulled to sleep. Wickedly, also, but at the same time quite consistently, do those act who do away with the expectation of the joys of heaven, and bring down all happiness to the level of mortality, and, as it were, sink it in the earth. Of what We have said the following fact, astonishing not so much in itself as in its open expression, may serve as a confirmation. For, since generally no one is accustomed to obey crafty and clever men so submissively as those whose soul is weakened and broken down by the domination of the passions, there have been in the sect of the Freemasons some who have plainly determined and proposed that, artfully and of set purpose, the multitude should be satiated with a boundless license of vice, as, when this had been done, it would easily come under their power and authority for any acts of daring. . . .
With the greatest unanimity the sect of the Freemasons also endeavors to take to itself the education of youth. They think that they can easily mold to their opinions that soft and pliant age, and bend it whither they will; and that nothing can be more fitted than this to enable them to bring up the youth of the State after their own plan. Therefore, in the education and instruction of children they allow no share, either of teaching or of discipline, to the ministers of the Church; and in many places they have procured that the education of youth shall be exclusively in the hands of laymen, and that nothing which treats of the most important and most holy duties of men to God shall be introduced into the instructions on morals. (Pope Leo XIII, Humanum Genus, April 20, 1884.)
Public schooling is in and of itself has usurped the Natural Law right of parents to be the principal educators of their children, who are considered to be the wards of the civil state and not of their parents. The government of one country after another, especially in formerly Catholic Europe, has sought to persecute home-schooling parents. The Federal Republic of Germany, the home of Martin Luther and Karl Marx, and Otto von Bismarck, and Adolf Hitler (yes, I know that Marx spent most of his life outside of Germany and that Hitler was born in Austria), has been particularly vicious in this regard.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio has no understanding of this whatsoever. He sees no direct connection between the promotion of sin under cover of the civil law and the existence of social problems, which he believes can be addressed by the "intervention" of the civil state even though it is the anti-Incarnational civil state of Modernity is one of the chief proximate reasons for the existence of these problems.
Far from the mind of Jorge Mario Bergoglio are these words of Pope Pius X, contained in Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910, which was a condemnation of The Sillon's false spirit of "reconciliation" between Catholicism and the principles of the French Revolution, a "reconciliation" that the "Second" Vatican Council and the conciliar "popes" have celebration and proselytized, if I can use that word, in their own rotten right:
Here we have, founded by Catholics, an inter-denominational association that is to work for the reform of civilization, an undertaking which is above all religious in character; for there is no true civilization without a moral civilization, and no true moral civilization without the true religion: it is a proven truth, a historical fact. The new Sillonists cannot pretend that they are merely working on “the ground of practical realities” where differences of belief do not matter. Their leader is so conscious of the influence which the convictions of the mind have upon the result of the action, that he invites them, whatever religion they may belong to, “to provide on the ground of practical realities, the proof of the excellence of their personal convictions.” And with good reason: indeed, all practical results reflect the nature of one’s religious convictions, just as the limbs of a man down to his finger-tips, owe their very shape to the principle of life that dwells in his body. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
Also, far from the Modernist mind of Jorge Mario Bergoglio are these words of Silvio Cardinal Antoniano in the Sixteenth Century that were quoted by Pope Pius XI in the aforementioned Divini Illius Magistri, December 31, 1931:
The more closely the temporal power of a nation aligns itself with the spiritual, and the more it fosters and promotes the latter, by so much the more it contributes to the conservation of the commonwealth. For it is the aim of the ecclesiastical authority by the use of spiritual means, to form good Christians in accordance with its own particular end and object; and in doing this it helps at the same time to form good citizens, and prepares them to meet their obligations as members of a civil society. This follows of necessity because in the City of God, the Holy Roman Catholic Church, a good citizen and an upright man are absolutely one and the same thing. How grave therefore is the error of those who separate things so closely united, and who think that they can produce good citizens by ways and methods other than those which make for the formation of good Christians. For, let human prudence say what it likes and reason as it pleases, it is impossible to produce true temporal peace and tranquillity by things repugnant or opposed to the peace and happiness of eternity. (Silvio Cardinal Antoniano, quoted by Pope Pius XI in Divini Illius Magistri, December 31, 1929.)
In full, conscious and active “communion” (no “partial communion” here) with each of his predecessors as the universal public face of apostasy in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, Jorge Mario Bergoglio sees absolutely no connection between disorder in the soul and disorder in nations and in the world. “Coexistence” and “dialogue” is what promotes “peace” and “understanding.”
In plain English, therefore, Jorge Mario Bergoglio believes that the coronavirus is more deadly than sin as he does not believe that there are any earthly or eternal consequences to the steadfast, persistent and unrepentant defiance of God’s laws, preferring to live in the delusional world of Marxist-Leninist ideology that men can remake a “better world” that is in a mess because of their own pride in believing all depends upon their efforts to reconstruct a world they have helped to destroy so that they can reign supreme over us all.
Having Recourse to Our Immaculate Queen
Today, December 8, 2020, is the great Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary that is the subject of a republished article to be posted contemporaneously with this first of two commentaries about Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his affinity for Marxism-Leninism in the West for the Chicom butchers of Red China.
Pope Pius XII issued an encyclical letter, Fulgens Corona, on September 8, 1953, the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, to inaugurate a Marian year in honor of the centennial of Pope Pius XI’s infallible dogmatic declaration of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Ineffabilus Deus, December 8, 1954.
Quite unlike Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Pope Pius XII, without naming Communism nor the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics or the People’s Republic of China, begged Catholics to pray to Our Lord to help restore Holy Mother Church’s freedom in those areas where it is repressed or denied altogether. Pope Pius XII wanted Catholics to have access to Holy Mass and the other sacraments; Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been an apologist for the lockdown state during a “crisis” whose goals were mapped out fourteen months ago and about which Bergoglio has shown himself to be not the least bit ignorant:
40. We desire in a special way, venerable brethren, that through the prayers which will be offered to God during the celebration of the coming Marian Year, supplication be made - through the intercession of the Mother of the Divine Redeemer and our Most Sweet Mother - finally the Catholic Church throughout the world may be allowed to enjoy the freedom that is its right: which freedom, as history clearly teaches, the Church has always used to promote the good of peoples, never their detriment; always to foster concord among citizens, nations and peoples, never strife.
41. Everybody knows what difficulties the Church is experiencing in many parts of the world; with what lies, detraction and spoliation she has to contend. All know that in many places pastors of souls are either unhappily banished or thrown into prison without just cause, or else are so harassed that they are unable to carry out their duties properly. Finally, all are well aware that in those same places they are not allowed to have their own schools and training colleges, that they cannot publicly teach, defend or propagate Christian doctrine in periodicals or commentaries, and cannot properly train the youth in accordance with the same doctrine.
42. Therefore, in this Encyclical Letter We earnestly repeat those exhortations made by Us more than once before as the occasion arose: and We firmly trust that during the celebration of this Marian Year fervent prayers be offered throughout the world to the most powerful Mother of God who is also our tender mother; and that in those prayers special requests be made of her efficacious and ever-present patronage, that the sacred rights which are proper to the Church, and which the very exercise of human and civil liberty demands, may be openly and sincerely recognized by all, and this without doubt will conduce to greatest common good and an increase of common concord.
43. We desire in the first place to direct Our exhortation, inspired by ardent charity, to those who, reduced to silence and trapped by all sorts of cunning snares, look with anguish of soul at the affliction and distress of their Christian community, left destitute of all human help. Let these, our dearly beloved brothers, also join with us and all other Christians in invoking before the Father of mercies and the God of all consolation (Cf. 2 Cor. 1. 3) the most powerful patronage of the Virgin Mother of God, our mother also, and let them ask her for heavenly aid and Divine consolation. Persevering in the ancient Faith with undaunted courage, let them take as their motto of Christian fortitude in this time of trial the words of the Mellifluous Doctor: "We shall stand and fight to death, if needs be, for (the Church) Our Mother, and with lawful weapons: not with the sword and shield, but with prayers and sighs to God (St. Bernard, Epistle 221. 3: Migne PL 182. 36, 387).
44. Furthermore, We call on those also who are separated from Us by ancient schism and whom none the less We love with paternal affection to unite in pouring forth these joint prayers and supplications, knowing full well how greatly they venerate the Mother of Jesus Christ and celebrate her Immaculate Conception. May the same Blessed Virgin Mary look down on all those who are proud to call themselves Christians, and who, being united at least by the bond of charity, humbly raise to her their eyes, their minds and their prayers, imploring that light which illumines the mind with heavenly rays, and begging for that unity by which at last there may be one fold and one shepherd (Cf. John 10. 16).
45. To these unanimous prayers, pious works of penance should be added. For the effect of devotion to prayer is this: "The soul is sustained, is prepared for arduous deeds and ascends to things Divine. The effect of penance is that we control ourselves, especially our body, which is, because of original sin, most rebellious against reason and the law of the Gospel. It is clear that these two virtues are intimately connected, help one another, and combine to withdraw man, who was born for Heaven, from transitory things, and carry him close to heavenly intimacy with God" (Leo XIII, encyc. Octobri mense, Sept. 22, 1891; Acta Leonis XIII, XI, p. 312).
46. Since, however, solid, sincere and tranquil peace has not yet appeared in souls and among peoples, let all strive with pious prayer to fully and fruitfully obtain and consolidate it, so that, just as the Most Blessed Virgin brought forth the Prince of Peace, so also may she, by her protection and patronage, unite men in friendly agreement. For then only can they enjoy whatever peaceful prosperity may be given to us during the course of this mortal life - when they are not divided by rivalries, not wretchedly torn by dissensions, not forced into opposite camps by threats and intrigues; but when, joining hands in friendly affection, they exchange the kiss of peace, that peace "which is tranquil liberty" (Cic, Phil. II. 44), and which, guided by justice and nurtured by charity, unites in one harmonious family the various classes of citizens, nations and people.
47. May the Divine Redeemer, moved by the favor and intercession of His most benign Mother, grant the widest and most fruitful effects to these Our most ardent desires, to which will correspond, We are sure, the wishes, not only of Our own children but also of all those who have at heart the interests of Christian culture and the progress of civil life. (Pope Pius XII, Fulgens Corona, September 8, 1953.)
Pope Pius XII stressed the important of penance, a concept that is almost foreign to the mind of Jorge Mario Bergoglio except when he talks about “crimes” against the “climate” or the “environment” or the “planet.” It is thus important, I believe, to emphasize a passage from Fulgens Corona just cited to demonstrate that the Catholicism of Pope Pius XII has nothing in common with the conciliarism of Jorge Mario Bergoglio:
The soul is sustained, is prepared for arduous deeds and ascends to things Divine. The effect of penance is that we control ourselves, especially our body, which is, because of original sin, most rebellious against reason and the law of the Gospel. It is clear that these two virtues are intimately connected, help one another, and combine to withdraw man, who was born for Heaven, from transitory things, and carry him close to heavenly intimacy with God. (Pope Pius XII, Fulgens Corona, September 8, 1953.)
May every Rosary we pray help to fortify us for the struggle ahead so that we can truly withdraw ourselves from an overconcern about transitory things and be thus carried close to heavenly intimacy with God.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon.
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us.
Saints Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar, pray for us.
The Harmful, Irreversible Effects of Vaccinations with Genetic Modifiers
One of the goals of the lockdown statists for whom Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been a most useful ally is to scare the masses into believing that the only way to something approximating a “pre-pandemic normal” is the widespread acceptance and distribution of vaccines to ward off the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus.
As is the case in all other propaganda campaigns of the government, calling to mind in the recent past the lies told by the administration of President George Walker Bush about those nonexistent “weapons of mass destruction” that Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was going to use against us with drones to be flown from the nonexistent Iraqi Navy and, in the more distant past, the lies told. respectively by the administrations of President William McKinley to justify the Spanish-American War and of President Thomas Woodrow Wilson to justify the American involvement in World War I, the governments of the so-called civil world have always been as one with dictatorships in using propaganda to condition the citizenry to accept whatever they want to be accomplished. The “follow the science” propaganda during the Spanish Influenza outbreak in 1918-1919 and against smallpox and polio in the 1950s resulted in the almost universal acceptance of vaccinations without any questioning of the true science involved. Indeed, the very social engineers who were writing in favor of policies requiring mandatory sterilization for certain kinds of “imbeciles” or “undesirables” or, to use today’s language, “deplorables” were in the forefront of using vaccination campaigns to condition people to being guinea pigs for the pharmaceutical industry, about which I wrote at some length in Antipapal Appointees Always Advance Antichrist’s Anti-Catholic Agenda, which is also included in Life, Death, and Truth: Under Attack by Medicine and Law.
Without conceding anything to whether those earlier vaccines were even necessary or were as effective as claimed (many people died from the Spanish Influenza vaccine), it is an undeniable fact now that vaccines now are no longer what they may have been fifty or sixty years ago.
Mind you, I received all the childhood immunization vaccinations then available in the 1950s and 1960s and received booster shots for tuberculosis and tetanus as required and survived unscathed. However, the pharmaceutical industry, drunk with its own mad scientists, have created multiple series of vaccinations that have been documented to cause all manner of harm in those who receive them and for which the manufacturers of those vaccines are held harmless for any liability thanks to the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 that was signed into law by President Ronald Wilson Reagan on November 14, 1986, and upheld as constitutional by the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the case of Bruesewitz v. Wyeth, LLC., FKA Wyeth, Inc, et al., February 22, 2011, in a 6-2 decision. Associate Justice Antonin Scalia wrote a fifty-seven page opinion for the Court to provide its rationale. In other words, the pharmaceutical manufacturers can experiment on us all they want with their vaccines that produce such horrible side-effects that they just also happen to manufacture the drugs that are supposed to treat those side-effects for the rest of the lives of those who experience them.
An important part of the whole Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus plandemic is to produce vaccinations at “warp speed” that will irreversibly modify the genetic composition of those who receive it. Those who want to “follow the science,” therefore, will follow it at “warp speed” into what the genetic engineers are calling “transhumans” or “post humans.”
Dr. Dianne N. Irving sent out the following message to her list on December 5, 2020, that was forwarded to me by another list, concerning the truly warped goals of “scientists” who are untethered to any concept of respecting human beings as the zenith of God’s creative handiwork and of doing nothing to deify themselves into transforming human beings into new creatures who will be conditioned in various ways and, in all too many cases, will make it impossible for physicians to treat diseases are undeterred by genetic engineering:
RNA-BASED VACCINES -- e.g. MODERNA, PFIZER
[Note: Please note that BOTH the DNA in the cell nucleus AND the DNA in the mitochondria constitute the "human GENOME".
[See also Irving, "Why Genetically Engineered Vaccines Are Dangerous" (Nov. 4, 2020), at: http://www.lifeissues.net/writers/irv/irv_254engineeredvaccines.html ; also David Knight video, re Pfizer vaccine chemicals cause infertility, Gates, depopulation, at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0heB3FnXyCI&feature=youtu.be ; also, "'Pandemic is Over' - Former Pfizer Chief Science Officer Says "Second Wave" Faked On False-Positive COVID Tests", at: https://www.zerohedge.com/medical/pandemic-over-former-pfizer-chief-science-officer-says-second-wave-faked-false-positive ]
Changing a patient's genes (as therapy) that won't be passed down through all of that patient's future generations is one thing (all things considered!). But changing the human genome in a patient and such changes are passed down through all of that patient's future generations is something else entirely! The latter involves the genetic engineering technique used by such new experimental vaccines as those by Moderna (created by Fauci's NIAID/NIH) and pushed by Bill Gates et al), and Pfizer.
What should be the proper response to Moderna -- or Pfizer? Might send them the horrific but accurate objective scientific information about their messenger-RNA technique (a form of "germ line gene editing" and "heritable gene editing") -- such as those from the Center for Genetics and Society for starters (quoting from scientists around the world!).
The Center for Genetics and Society (CGS) is definitely NOT a "prolife" organization -- and has said so for decades. Yet it has provided everyone with objective scientific facts about human "germ line" and "heritable" gene editing for decades. (Human Germline Genome Editing = human embryos created are NOT used for reproduction (not implanted); Heritable Genome Editing = human embryos created ARE used for reproduction (are implanted). In either case, new living human embryos with genetically altered genomes are reproduced!)
Either or both of these genetic engineering techniques are being used by Moderna, Pfizer, and a few other current COVID vaccine producers! See recent articles by the Center for Genetics and Society/BioPolitical Times: "The "Geneva Statement" Calls for Course Correction on Heritable Genome Editing", at: https://www.geneticsandsociety.org/biopolitical-times/geneva-statement-calls-course-correction-heritable-genome-editing ; also, "Assessing the Global Policy Landscape for Human Germline and Heritable Genome Editing", at: https://www.geneticsandsociety.org/biopolitical-times/assessing-global-policy-landscape-human-germline-and-heritable-genome-editing

-- Germ-line gene editing: garbage in garbage out! [e.g. Moderna-type genetically engineered vaccines], at: https://www.geneticsandsociety.org/biopolitical-times/whats-not-about-perfect-technology
As noted before, the vaccines now reported by Moderna and Pfizer are messenger RNA-based vaccine. So consider the following concerns:
(1) Scientifically impossible for any vaccine to be 90% or 94% effective; as even the charts on the CDC website document, the highest % ever historically is about 60-62%, most far less than that;
(2) Never used for flu vaccine production before;
(3) No reliable "data" or research studies on such use, no Scientific Method (including independent Replication);
(4) The DNA or RNA of a virus constantly changes as it infects different people (using their DNA or RNA to replicate!), so vaccine producers would not know exactly what the DNA or RNA sequence of the virus is to use in any vaccine;
(5) Could use RNA to RE-code the person's own DNA against this virus .. OR use the RNA to RE-code the person's own DNA in any way they want but you won't know that;
(6) RE-coding a person's natural DNA or RNA would include that person's germ line cells (primitive sperm and oocytes) and THUS the Re-coding would be passed down through that person's generations.
(7) Absolutely no formal social discussions or debates on the real issues involved;
(8) These vaccine producers are legally shielded from any law suits if injuries or deaths occur!
(9) What could possibly justify making such vaccines mandated?!
Thus it is quite discouraging to see Moderna's and Pfizer's efforts for vaccines are still even acknowledged as legitimate, as they are using a genetic change in the mRNA -- that changes the functioning of the DNA in the cell's mitochondria in the cytoplasm outside the cell's nucleus, causing that DNA to produce "foreign" proteins. Please note that both the DNA in the cell nucleus AND the DNA in the mitochondria constitute the "human GENOME". This genetic engineering technique is one that has received extensive international criticisms.
Such genetic changes are eugenic by nature and touted by Transhumanists to little by little create "post-humans" who would have a different genome than members of the human species and thus be able to fuse into "Cosmic Consciousness"!
Why would anyone want to use "vaccines" to change our natural DNA genomes? Why don't they call it like it is -- germ line and heritable genetic engineering? Who would be making the decisions as to which changes would be used? Obviously, if people don't really know precisely what is in those "vaccines" and precisely what the consequences are to them in-the-flesh -- including those volunteers to be used in 4 stages of clinical trials -- then they are precluded from giving ethically and legally required INFORMED CONSENT. Yet because of current legislation, these vaccine producers are legally shielded from any law suites! Far far more needs to be discussed, debated and determined about the use of any messenger RNA-based "vaccines", especially those by Moderna and Pfizer. (Email alert sent by Dr. Dianne N. Irving. An article on the Children’s Health Defense website discusses how MMR II vaccine for the mumps is not safe or effective in the prevention of the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus.)
This is important information to absorb. Modern vaccinations are not meant to help us. They are meant to control us so that we can be experimented upon ad infinitum, ad nauseam by those who have a handsome profit to make from us by doing so.
Some might object at this point that there is nothing opposed to Faith and Morals posed by vaccinations in se and that we should trust the governmental agencies run by pro-aborts, pro-sodomites, pro-“family-planning,” pro-“brain death”/human vivisection and transplantation, pro-starvation and dehydration of innocent human beings who are said to be “vegetables” (see ), pro-“in vitro fertilization,” pro-explicit classroom instruction in matters pertaining to the Sixth and Ninth Commandments as a matter of “public health,” pro-chemically and surgically altering human beings to be “transformed” into the opposite gender, something that is both a physical and an ontological impossibility.
We do not need a true pope on the Throne of Saint Peter to pronounce authoritatively whether this or that supposedly “scientific” development represents “progress” and that we must as “good citizens” go what the scientists tell us to do for the sake of “public health.” We have been given the faculty of reason by God to make our own judgments about whether a certain “scientific” development is truly good or whether it is irresponsible.
Some argue about the liceity of taking a vaccination derived in part from fetal stem cell lines as merely remote cooperation with evil. In this regard, therefore, let me reprise my comments on this subject as found in Antipapal Appointees Always Advance Antichrist’s Anti-Catholic Agenda, which was published on this site twenty months ago:
Whatever vaccines were sixty years ago, however, they are not now. This is true even of vaccines administered by veterinarians, including those, such as rabies, that state law mandates to be given. Our own Chase developed a sarcoma at the base of his neck just above his spine in January of 2015 in the exact spot where he had received a rabies vaccination twelve months before. The veterinarian, who is a pioneer in the use of alternative treatments (chiropractic, electro-acupuncture, laser treatment, his own naturopathic formulae), excised the tumor surgically upon discovery. However, it grew back in an operable place under his neck a year later, and he had to be euthanized over three months ago now. The veterinarian, who is seventy-seven years of age, knows the harmful nature of the vaccines. He told me that of least one other case as Chase’s in his practice. However, this is an instance where a veterinarian has to comply with the state mandate or lose his license.
Catholics are not anti-medicine or anti-science. However, we must use good, old-fashioned common sense to know what is truly beneficial for us and when there is an actual need to seek medical attention in the event of an accident or a life-threatening illness. One does so these days, however, with the recognition that we are at the mercy of medical “evaluators” who desire to put us into the pipeline for eventual “home hospice” “care.”
This having been noted, it is important to point out that even though the “New Charter for Health Care Workers” is aimed principally at guiding those who work in the health care industry, including medical researchers, the section on vaccinations does have relevance to the situation in Kentucky, especially in light of Antipapal Assembly of Death’s acceptance of the moral liceity of such vaccines. Alas, this is not a complex matter at all once one recognizes (a) one can have nothing to do with abortion; and (b) that vaccine scam is based on one false premise after another. Does an evil act because less evil because it was committed forty years ago? The passage of time can never conference legitimacy on that which is illegitimate.
As one medical professional, one who does not reject all vaccines, wrote to me on this matter: “It is better to be sick than be given a vaccine made from a cannibalized baby.”
It is this simple. There is no need for the moral casuistry of the Vatican relativists who seek to complexify every situation facing Catholics who are confronted with demands from the omniscient, omnipotent statist overlords who want to control us even while they insist that they believe in “freedom of choice.” Sure, we have “freedom of choice,” all right. We have the “freedom of choice” to agree with them or suffer their wrath.
The situation in the supposedly “free” West is slightly different, at least visibly, than in, say, Red China, where everyone is under compulsion to do what the state says or suffer monstrous fines. There is no such thing as legitimate freedom of conscience exemptions in a Communist tyranny, thus forcing Catholics who know better to be injected with the poisons that may cause serious health problems over the course of their lifetimes. We are getting closer and closer to that point to be sure (see (Rockland County, New York, Bans Unvaccinted Minors from Churches and other public places during measles outbreak and Protests Erupt over Unvaccinated Child Ban In Rockland County, New Yorks ), and when we do have at it formally, of course, the officials within the conciliar Vatican will be the first to make sure those of us who resist receive the maximize penalties allowable under the law after, that is, we are forced to be vaccinated with the poisons that are said to be so very good for us and for the good of public health. The whole vaccination scam is designed to destroy human immune systems and to give the pharmaceutical companies and governmental decisions more and more power over the lives of ordinary citizens.
The medical industry has lied to us about the "safety" of contraception, which can never be safe on natural level as that which is unsafe for the soul is inherently unsafe for the body. Contraception is a lie as it denies the Sovereignty of God over the sanctity and fecundity of Holy Matrimony.
The medical industry has lied to us about the "safety" of surgical abortion, which is deadly to an innocent baby, harmful to the body and soul of his mother and destructive of the just order of men and their nations.
The medical industry has lied to us about the "safety" of overt pharmaceutical abortifacients such as RU-486, which has killed women in addition to killing babies and the souls of their mothers and those who manucture, market and dispense them at a retail level with the full knowledge of being complicit in an abortion.
The medical industry has lied to us about the "fact" of brain death, which has made possible the killing off of innocent beings to faciliate the the vivisection of their bodily organs in order to "give the gift of life."
The medical industry has lied to us about the "necessity" of starving and dehydrating to die persons said to be in a "persistent vegetative state." (Yesterday, March 31, 2019, was the fourteenth anniversary of the court-ordered death of Mrs. Theresa Maria Schindler-Schiavo, who died on March 31, 2005, after she had been starved and dehydrated for thirteen grueling days of state-sponsored torture (see Ten Years Later).
The medical industry has lied to us about the "compassion" of "palliative care," which is nothing other than a carefully supervised execution of a human being who is either terminally ill or said to be suffering a loss of a "quality of life" because of a chronic illness or even because the "team" of health care professionals deem that he is better off dead than alive.
The medical industry has lied to us the "dignity" of "doctor-assisted suicide," which denies the Sovereignty of God over the inviolability of innocent life just as does abortion. New Jersey has become the latest state to "legalize" this lie (see New Jersey Governor Vows to Sign Bill Allowing Doctors to Help Kill Terminally Ill Patients).
Big Pharm has lied to us about the "safety" and the "benefits" of various products that have killed people.
Mad scientists, believing in their own omnipotence and omniscience, have lied about their work in gene-editing, human cloning and eugenics so that they can spring their "findings" as faits accompli for a public distracted by bread and circuses to admire with due reverence and acceptance.
Why should we believe that these combined forces are telling us the truth about the "safety" of vaccinations and even about the history of these vaccinations and their supposed effectiveness?
Why should we believe the assurances given by the government of the United States of America and global organizations such as the United Nations and the World Health Organization about the "safety" of food additives, preseveratives, artificial sweeteners and vaccines, some of which contain sterilizing agents to wipe out the popuations of Third World countries (see, for example, Mass Sterilization Exercise: Kenyan Doctors Find Anti-Fertility Agent in UN Tetanus Vaccine)?
Remember, the government assured us that "DDT is safe for me-e-e".
Trusting the doctors and the government to get ourselves microchipped if we want to board an airplane (not that I do) or simply to "assure" the public safety by being able to identify (and to control) us and our activities?
At what point do we say, "This is enough, I will not believe in the lies told by people who do hate Christ the King and His true Church and who do not have either the temporal or eternal good of souls in mind"?
It has become an article of the secular “faith” to treat the high priests and priestesses of science with unfailing deference.
There comes a time when moral casuistry so blurs the distinctions between right and wrong and good and evil that we can come to convince ourselves—or be convinced of by others—that we can materially cooperate in almost anything as long as it has come to be accepted as a standard practice and is represented to us to be necessary and thus made mandatory by the civil state.
Nonetheless, however, the fact remains that the vaccines being developed to “prevent” the spread of a mostly non-lethal disease that was created in a laboratory by mad scientists as part of biological weapons program in Wuhan, Red China are harmful to our genetic composition and of those will follow us. Moreover, the civil state can never justly compel one to cooperate with evil remotely, and, I would argue, it would be morally irresponsible to ignore the harm of the upcoming vaccinations and their subsequent “boosters” as part of the Fifth Commandment is the proper care of one’s body, which is, after all, a temple of God the Holy Ghost.
Thus, it is good to review what the truth of what President Donald John Trump has called “Operation Warped Speed” and what those involved in its operation desire to accomplish:
‘Operation Warp Speed (OWS), a joint operation between U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Department of Defense, continues to be shrouded in secrecy, but little by little information is emerging that long-term monitoring of the U.S. public is part of the plan.
At face value, OWS is a public-private partnership tasked with producing therapeutics and a fast-tracked COVID-19 vaccine1 — 300 million doses’ worth that are intended to be made available starting in January 2021.2
But it appears the involvement doesn’t end there. Rather than just ensuring a vaccine is produced and made available for those who want it, Moncef Slaoui, the chief scientific adviser for Operation Warp Speed, dubbed the coronavirus vaccine czar,3 said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal that the rollout will include “incredibly precise … tracking systems.”4,5
Their purpose? “To ensure that patients each get two doses of the same vaccine and to monitor them for adverse health effects.”6 In an interview with The New York Times, Slaoui described it as a “very active pharmaco vigilance surveillance system.”7
What Will the Vaccine Monitoring System Entail?
This is the No. 1 question, and one that hasn’t been answered, at least not officially. “While Slaoui himself was short on specifics regarding this ‘pharmacovigilance surveillance system,'” news outlet Humans Are Free reported, “the few official documents from OWS that have been publicly released offer some details about what this system may look like and how long it is expected to ‘track’ the vital signs and whereabouts of Americans who receive a Warp Speed vaccine.”8
One of the documents, titled “From the Factory to the Frontlines: The Operation Warp Speed Strategy for Distributing a COVID-19 Vaccine,” was released by HHS.9 It also mentions the use of pharmacovigilance surveillance along with Phase 4 (post-licensure) clinical trials in order to assess the vaccines’ long-term safety, since “some technologies have limited previous data on safety in humans.”10
The report, which lays out a strategy for distributing a COVID-19 vaccine, from allocation and distribution to administration and more, continues:11
“The key objective of pharmacovigilance is to determine each vaccine’s performance in real-life scenarios, to study efficacy, and to discover any infrequent and rare side effects not identified in clinical trials. OWS will also use pharmacovigilance analytics, which serves as one of the instruments for the continuous monitoring of pharmacovigilance data.
Robust analytical tools will be used to leverage large amounts of data and the benefits of using such data across the value chain, including regulatory obligations. Pharmacovigilance provides timely information about the safety of each vaccine to patients, healthcare professionals, and the public, contributing to the protection of patients and the promotion of public health.”
Similar language was reiterated in an October 2020 perspective article published in The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), written by Slaoui and Dr. Matthew Hepburn.12
Hepburn is a former program manager for the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), where he oversaw the development of ProfusA,13 an implantable biosensor that allows a person’s physiology to be examined at a distance via smartphone connectivity. ProfusA is also backed by Google, the largest data mining company in the world.
Writing in NEJM, the duo writes, “Because some technologies have limited previous data on safety in humans, the long-term safety of these vaccines will be carefully assessed using pharmacovigilance surveillance strategies.”14
‘Traceability’ a Key Tenet of Operation Warp Speed
Humans Are Free also references an OWS infographic,15 which details the COVID-19 vaccine distribution and administration process. One of the four key tenets is “traceability,” which includes confirming which of the approved vaccines were administered regardless of location (public or private), reminding recipients to return for a second dose and ensuring that the correct second dose is administered.
That word — pharmacovigilance — is used again, this time as a heading inferring that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be involved in “24-month post trial monitoring for adverse effects/additional safety feature.” Pharmacovigilance, also known as drug safety, generally refers to the collection, analysis, monitoring and prevention of adverse effects from medications and other therapies.16
Passive reporting systems for adverse events, like the Vaccines Adverse Event Reporting System, already exist and are managed by the FDA and CDC.
However, a report released by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Center for Health Security suggests that passive systems that rely on people to send in their experiences should be made into an “active safety surveillance system directed by the CDC that monitors all vaccine recipients — perhaps by short message service or other electronic mechanisms — with criteria based on the World Health Organization Global Vaccine Safety Initiative.”17,18
What’s more, according to Humans Are Free, “Despite the claims in these documents that the ‘pharmacovigilance surveillance system’ would intimately involve the FDA, top FDA officials stated in September that they were barred from attending OWS meetings and told reporters they could not explain the operation’s organization or when or with what frequency its leadership meets.”19 STAT News further reported:20
“The Food and Drug Administration, which is playing a critical role in the response to the pandemic, has virtually no visibility into OWS — but that’s by design … The FDA has set up a firewall between the vast majority of staff and the initiative to separate any regulatory decisions from policy or budgetary decisions.
FDA officials are still allowed to interact with companies developing products for OWS, but they’re barred from sitting in on discussions regarding other focuses of OWS, like procurement, investment or distribution.”
Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Center for Health Security, by the way, has ties to Event 201, a pandemic preparedness simulation for a “novel coronavirus” that took place in October 2019, along with Dark Winter, another simulation that took place in June 2001, which predicted major aspects of the subsequent 2001 anthrax attacks.
Hepburn also reportedly “ruffled feathers” during a June 2020 presentation to the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices because he offered no data-rich slides, which are typically part of such presentations, and, STAT News reported, “Several members asked Hepburn pointed questions he pointedly did not answer.”21
Google and Oracle Contracted to Collect Vaccine Data
Google and Oracle, a multinational computer technology corporation headquartered in California, in the heart of Silicon Valley, have been contracted to “collect and track vaccine data” as part of OWS’ surveillance systems,22 a partnership Slaoui reportedly revealed in his Wall Street Journal interview.23 According to Humans Are Free:24
“If the Warp Speed contracts that have been awarded to Google and Oracle are anything like the Warp Speed contracts awarded to most of its participating vaccine companies, then those contracts grant those companies diminished federal oversight and exemptions from federal laws and regulations designed to protect taxpayer interests in the pursuit of the work stipulated in the contract.
It also makes them essentially immune to Freedom of Information Act requests. Yet, in contrast to the unacknowledged Google and Oracle contracts, vaccine companies have publicly disclosed that they received OWS contracts, just not the terms or details of those contracts. This suggests that the Google and Oracle contracts are even more secretive.”
In an interview with investigative journalist Whitney Webb (see Mercola hyperlink above under “Dark Winter”), it’s also revealed that Slaoui, a long-time head of GlaxoSmithKline’s vaccine division, is a leading proponent of bioelectronic medicine, which is the use of injectable or implantable technology for the purpose of treating nerve conditions.
The MIT Technology review has referred to it as hacking the nervous system. But it also allows you to monitor the physiology of the human body from the inside.
Slaoui is also invested in a company called Galvani Bioelectronics, which was cofounded by a Google subsidiary. “So, you have Google being contracted to monitor this pharmacovigilance surveillance system that aims to monitor the physiology and the human body for two years,” Webb says.
“And then you have the ties to the ProfusA project,” she adds, “which oddly enough is supposed to work inside the human body for 24 months — the exact window they’ve said will be used to monitor people after the first [vaccine] dose.”
The conflict of interest is massive, in part because Google owns YouTube, which has been banning our videos, a majority of which are interviews with health experts sharing their medical or scientific expertise and viewpoints on COVID-19, since June 2020. As noted by Humans Are Free:25
“With Google now formally part of OWS, it seems likely that any concerns about OWS’s extreme secrecy and the conflicts of interest of many of its members (particularly Moncef Slaoui and Matt Hepburn) as well as any concerns about Warp Speed vaccine safety, allocation and/or distribution may be labeled ‘COVID-19 vaccine misinformation’ and removed from YouTube.”
Is Total Surveillance Set to Become the New Normal?
OWS, rather than being directed by public health officials, is heavily dominated by military, technology companies and U.S. intelligence agencies, likening it to a successor for Total Information Awareness (TIA), a program managed by DARPA that sprang up after the 9/11 attacks.
At the time, TIA was seeking to collect Americans’ medical records, fingerprints and other biometric data, along with DNA and records relating to personal finances, travel and media consumption.26 According to Webb (again, refer to the Mercola hyperlink earlier, “Dark Winter”):
“We now know, for example, that the NSA and the Department of Homeland Security are directly involved in Operation Warp Speed, but they won’t really say exactly what parts they’re doing. But there are some indications as to what they could be involved with.
And the fact that Silicon Valley companies that have been known to collaborate with intelligence [agencies] for the purpose of spying on innocent Americans — Google and Oracle, for example — are going to be involved in this surveillance system … for everyone that gets the vaccine.
It’s certainly alarming, and it seems to point to the fulfillment of an agenda that was attempted to be pushed through or foisted on the American public after 9/11, called Total Information Awareness, which was managed, originally, by DARPA.
It was about using medical data and non-medical data — essentially all data about you — to prevent terror attacks before they could happen, and also to prevent bioterror attacks and even prevent naturally occurring disease outbreaks.
A lot of the same initiatives proposed under that original program after 9/11 have essentially been resurrected, with updated technology, under the guise of combating COVID-19.”
A key difference is that TIA was quickly defunded by Congress after significant public backlash, including concerns that TIA would undermine personal privacy. In the case of OWS, there’s little negative press and media outlets are overwhelmingly supportive of the operation as a way to resolve the COVID-19 crisis.
But what if it’s not actually about COVID-19 at all, but represents something bigger, something that’s been in the works for decades? As Humans Are Free puts it:27
“The total-surveillance agenda that began with TIA and that has been resurrected through Warp Speed predated COVID-19 by decades.
Its architects and proponents have worked to justify these extreme and invasive surveillance programs by marketing this agenda as the ‘solution’ to whatever Americans are most afraid of at any given time. It has very little to do with ‘public health’ and everything to do with total control. (Operation Warp Speed’s End Goal is Total Surveillance
While it is undoubtedly the case that many well-meaning people who are otherwise opposed to the Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus vaccinations may be forced to take them as requirements for their employment, which is also part of the plandemicists’ goals, of course, there is going to come a time when we may need a “vaccination license” to enter into a grocery store or any other commercial establishment that is open to the public.
We have been forced to wear masks or face coverings.
Those who travel across state lines have had to face mandatory quarantines in many instances and to submit to “contact tracing.”
Neighbors have been encouraged to spy on each other.
Yes, a whole program based in fear of that which cannot kill the soul and is not even a legitimate threat in most cases to human lives is all that is taken to provide the excuse for enemies of Christ the King and His true Church to restrict human liberties in such a way as to create a new order of things wherein men consider themselves to be not children of the true God but as mere creatures of the civil state whose life and liberty is always at the mercy of the merciless. And Jorge Mario Bergoglio supports every single bit of this agenda that has been unfolded thus far and that will unfold into the future as well.
As mentioned in the main body of this commentary, we must fly unto the patronage of Our Lady, she who is the Health of the Sick, Our Mother of Perpetual Help, Comforter of the Afflicted, and Our Help of Christians at all times. It is so very important to be enrolled in Our Lady’s Brown Scapular of Mount Carmel and to wear a truly blessed Miraculous Medal to ward off the enemies of our salvation and of the good of our bodies.
No matter what might befall us, however, and what we are required to suffer during these times of persecution and trial as we are witnessing the rising of a red dawn and the descent of a new iron curtain upon us in the name of “public health and safety,” we must always accept whatever happens us as occurring with the Providence of God and to remember that His Most Blessed Mother is ready to show us with all the graces for us her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, to lift high the cross and exclaim always:
Viva Cristo Rey!
