Bergoglio pollyana awakening

Dishonourable and impotent but still dangerous: The failure of Donald Trump to get anything done in his country imperils us all - Sunday 8th to Saturday 14th of April

As far as scandals in the Church go, this was a normal week by NOChurch standards.

We had  Carlo Capella, a former Vatican diplomat, being arrested on child pornography charges in the Vatican - well overdue, one might add.We had Cardinal Schönborn intimating that we could have priestesses in the Catholic Church.

Bergoglio issued yet another apostolic exhortation, this time called "Gaudete et Exsultate" - 'Rejoice and be Glad', which, let not the title deceive you, was yet another big rant against those who hold to the Catholic faith. We also had Bergoglio seeming to aplogise for his handling of the Barros sexual abuse affiliation scandal in Chile, and I write "seeming" because he found a way to say that he was not actually to blame and that he only acted wrongly because of the information he had received.

The fallout from Bergoglio's denial of heresy continuted, with one of the most prominent American neo-Catholics, Fr. Dwight Longenecker, finally publicly turning on him. The Remnant was quick to draw attention to the fact that Bergoglio is losing support from those who have defended him all along.

The big news were of course that the U.S. and its NATO lap dogs launched strikes against Syria. This time at least it took them almost a week before launching strikes against Syria, which is more than the 2-3 days it took them at roughly the same time last year.

Much of the week - by anyone honest - was spent actually exposing the absurdity of the alleged chemical attacks which were used as the justification for this NATO attack to have been carried out by Assad. A rather large chunk went to actually showing that the alleged events never actually took place, and that the whole narrative had been a hoax. That did not matter for Donald Trump and co. , however, as they launched their airstrikes on the very same day that the OPCW inspectors were supposed to visit the site of the alleged incident.

Most of the media covered itself in shame yet again, with Tucker Carlson the one notable and admirable dissenter in the U.S. In a series of episodes he showed just how much the U.S. has lied about this stuff before, that the U.S. defence minister had just 2 months prior come out and said that the chemical attack which was alleged to have taken place last year and which was used as the justification for airstrikes then was never actually proved . He also pointed out that there seems to be a pattern in which as soon as it seems as though the U.S. might be pulling out or drawing down its involvement in helping the Islamists in Syria, a 'chemical attack' takes place, which is used to drum up support for some sort of U.S. intervention in Syria.

The Russians, are, of course, in Syria and helping the Syrian government strike back against the head-chopping heart-eating Islamists who the U.S. and its Western allies - not to mention Turkey - have been hell-bent on unleashing in Syria. Russia had warned that it would shoot down any missiles which threatened its forces in Syria, and not only that, but that they would also target any launch platforms which were used. Fortunately, that did not come to fruition as the NATO strikes were cosmetic at best. Nobody died, which is the most important thing, and the equipment that was destroyed does not seem to have been irreplaceable.

Still, we are talking about an unprovoked attack on a sovereign country founded on a very lazy lie which was easily disproved and we should all be concerned that the NATO gang feel they can attack any country for any reason, or no reason at all. It should also be a cause of embarassment for all Americans that the president of the U.S. has more latitude in attacking countries for no reason than he has to put a stop to spurious money-sucking investigations directed towards him, or even building the wall which was the cornerstone of his presidential campaign.

A petition was launched by prominent Catholics in an attempt to impress on Trump the importance of the just war doctrine, not that it did much help.

I have already had occasion to write once on "The greatest fantasy in the Western rogue states' latest attack on Syria" and I intend to follow this story because it deserves to be followed, and also because of the disgraceful actions I have seen from both Catholics and non-Catholics regardin this latest Western aggression against yet another sovereign state. The mainstream media was predictably extremely vociferous in its support and encouragement for military action against Syria, relying on lies and disinformation based upon previous lies and disinformation to make its case.

Some of the most prominent traditionalist Catholics were very vocal in their opposition to these strikes, as was the Christian community in Syria. The Remnant and OnePeterFive deserve honourable mentions as well as contrast. At The Remnant, nobody commenting on the story believed the U.S. government story. At OnePeterFive, the publishers did not believe it, but since the quality of Catholicism is lower there  - it is not exclusively or even primarily traditionalist in nature - the quality of the responses towards the official Western narrative was also noticeably worse.

One more important thing to take home from this is that Donald Trump missed a golden chance to assure his re-election. If he had turned to the people who elected him and told him that this is just another fake news media ploy, I have little doubt that he would have stood out as a giant among (granted, mediocre) men. Instead, he missed the oppostunity to look smart for once and now looks just like another stooge of the deep state and the American war machine. As far as I am concerned, the U.S. would be better off if Donald Trump was to be impeached because at least that would pull...

The surviving dubia cardinals might be up to something - Sunday 22nd of October to Saturday 29th of October

There are subtle signs that a reprimand of Bergoglio from the dubia cardinals over Amoris Laetitia might not be long in coming. Yes, I know, we have been waiting well over a year now with nothing but whispers in the background from the cardinals, when they should be howling but 2 things lead me to this suspicion.

First we had Cardinal Burke visiting relics of St. Thomas More and speaking in glowing terms about one's duty to defend the faith at all costs. For those not in the know, St. Thomas More was the layman who was executed by King Henry VIII for opposing his plans to take over the Church in England. Although the particulars of this particular martyrdom have St. Thomas More resisting the king only when he wanted to declare himself head of the Church, the context is that the king wanted to take over the Church as he would not be granted an annulment, seeing as he wanted to shack it up with another woman. St. Thomas More was certainly out of luck for had he lived during a pope as atrocious as Bergoglio, he might well have kept his head, since Bergoglio's take would probably be that they were never married anyway, and that the king would have been more married with a concubine than his legal wife.

Alas, those were easier times from a doctrinal point-of-view, so the good St. Thomas More had little option than to follow the dictates of the LORD and take the consequences. Visiting the relics of this, perhaps the greatest of Englishmen, might give Cardinal Burke strength to do the same.

On another front we had Cardinal Brandmüller come out swinging, telling us that people who claim that adulterers can receive Holy Communion licitly are excommunicated. I am not sure of the particulars, but I would agree with him on the general point: To claim either that adultery is not a mortal sin or that mortal sin does not preclude one from  Holy Communion is a heresy. That Bergoglio holds this position and many other heretical ones is the worst-kept secret in the world.  It would be much easier to issue a reprimand to someone who has had excommunication charges levelled against him than to someone in good standing. So I see these 2 moves in the same week as a signal that something might be about to happen.

I hope against hope that the cardinals are serious about this. Let's be honest: Being a dubia cardinal seems to be just about the most dangerous position in the world right now, with the culling rate that they have experience. Cardinal Brandmüller is 88 years old, so it is not as though he has much time left. Furthermore, we know that it is much easier to make the death of an 88-year old seem natural than the far younger Cardinal Burke, who is still below 70. For his own sake, it might be better if Cardinal Brandmüller issues that correction as soon as possible, as I believe the Bergoglio schemers would be less willing to threaten him after a correction than before.

With these words, I do not claim definitively that the deaths of the 2 other cardinals were due to foul play. However, you will excuse me for concluding that a pope and his minions who do not hesitate to condemn millions to eternity in hell will not hesitate to take the earthly life of 2 elderly cardinals, or 4, or however many it takes.

In "I, Me & the Papacy" we had some words of frustration from One Mad Mom. She is tired of how Bergoglio is all "me, me me, I , I , I , me ...". She does not recal Pope Benedict XVI speaking in the first person so many times. Pope Benedict, alas, was not an attention whore, or a narcissist. I would file this under "Bergoglio pollyanna awakening", as from what I can tell she is far from traditionalist, and I would suspect that she has only been forced into this opinion by the very public way in which Bergoglio pursues his anti-Catholic ends. If there is any good with Bergoglio, it is surely that he has gotten people to realise just what a mess the Church is at this moment in time.

Anti-Russian hysterica continues both in Europe and in the U.S. We had Twitter banning Russian ads, just to press home that they cannot be trusted on anything. In Europe, we had an NGO, so-called, publishing a list of Russia Today's guest, and villifying them for appearing on that news network.  I continue to maintain that the reason Russia is villified so much is because Russia stands for national sovereignty and largely Christian values. It is hard to believe that the U.S.S.R. was villified by these same folks in anything approaching the way that modern Russia is.

Over in Spain, separatists in Catalonia declared independence. They joy from ruling separatist socialists was short-lived as the Spanish government dissolved the parliament and took control of the police forces. From what I have been told, the separatist prime minister is in Brussels, perhaps hiding from embezzlement charges.

This week's prize for Bergoglio victim of the week goes to Catholics who were arrested in Belgium for saying the Rosary, in a Catholic church. The main event at the church was some lutherfest of one kind or another, an ecumenical gathering the likes of which Bergoglio has spent so much time promoting. They join a long and growing list of Bergoglio's victims. If you are a faithful Catholic, or even a half-decent person, you might well find yourself on that list before the man's time is up....
