Bergoglio gets his annual Christmas spank on, and sucking a banana in public may not be all it's cracked up to be - Sunday 17th to Saturday 23rd of December

In Rome, Bergoglio was up to his usual annual Christmas insults to the Roman Curia. This is what Novus Ordo Watch, the sedevacantist website, called the "annual spanking".

It is hard to imagine that there is any other organisation in the world which would tolerate a leader who does not believe in its mission statement and spends most of his time demoralising his subordinates all-the-while praising the competitors. Yet that is what we have in Bergoglio. In a sense, I suppose this serves to prove that the Church is not of human hands, for had it been, it would have collapsed into oblivion ages ago. Perhaps Bergoglio serves a positive purpose then, after all.

It is good nonetheless to see opposition towards Bergoglio spreading over much of the Church, and while it is true that it has not become entirely mainstream yet, we have a lot of people feeling emboldened enough to poke fun of Bergoglio assuming a context which would only have been knowable by a small group of faithful some 2 months ago. The satire I have particularly in mind is a cartoon version of Raymond Arroyo interviewing Bergoglio. It's hit-count is not astronomical at this time of writing, but I would expect it to grow. The youtube channel itself seems set up specifically to combat modernists and it is telling that the 2 first videos feature Bergoglio.

There is also no hint of the creators being traditionalists, so we can assume that criticism of Bergoglio, disregard for his false humility and realisation of his hubris has spread far and wide. As I often say, it is only neo-Catholics who don't seem to see it, as both modernists and the secular world clearly are of the opinion that Bergoglio is one of them.

Some kind of good news, of sorts, in Egypt, also was brought to my attention. These have to do with a pop singer who was sentenced to jail over lewd acts in a music video, which included sucking a banana in a sexually suggestive way, presumably - I could only get through a section of the music video, and this was the non-banana part. Her director was also sentenced to prison. She got 2 years. I highly doubt that she will spend that much time in prison, but it's important to note the was sentenced to prison for corrupting public morals. Many will point to this and see nothing but Islamic subjugation but the fact of the matter is that public decency is a cause worth fighting for and if the Muslims are doing it then we should applaud them for it. If the Western world had punished celebrities who corrupted public morality we would hardly be in the mess in which we currently find ourselves.

Over at the U.N., Trump and the U.S. were reprimanded by both the U.N. Security Council - which the U.S. naturally vetoed as the only member voting against - and then at the U.N. General Assembly after the U.S. had vetoed as the sole dissenter. The issue was condemning Trump for recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and proclaiming that the U.S. embassy would be moved there, in direct contravention of international law, which I have been led to believe, considers Jerusalem to be occupied Palestinian territory. It's interesting that despite all their overt threats, the U.S. only managed to get 8 states on its side - most of them "micro-states" , including the occupying country, of course -  in a vote it lost 128-9, with 34 abstentions, if memory serves me right.

We had Nikki Haley, a woman with a Ph. D in hillbilly studies according to Russia Today's show host Peter Lavelle, threatening that she would be taking notes and reporting who voted against them, with Donald Trump chiming in that the U.S. would stop sending aid money to countries which voted against them, and Haley again saying that since the U.S. pays most of the money they deserve respect. I shall briefly point out here that the U.S. gets more money from the U.S. than any other nation on account of all the diplomatic missions stationed in New Yor, as well as the fact that if all you have is "I'll kick you in the courtyard later" and "I pay more than you so I am always right", you really do prove that you have no leg to stand on. I very much applaud the members of the U.N. which took the U.S. to task on this.

Some felt that Britain betrayed America in voting against them in the U.N. Security Council. This should alert any Brit as to how Americans see the U.K. - as nothing more than a poodle to whatever policy the U.S. laps up.

One man who got a filip from this was Erdogan, who is desperately trying to position himself as the leader of the Muslim world. He warned Muslims that "Muslims may lose Mecca if they fail to hold on to Jerusalem". Frankly, I doubt that much will come of t his move, as Trump must well know. The Arab countries are far too tied down to American policy and far too duplicitous to make any demands against the U.S. on this.  Although the decision bodes badly for Trump's morality, as a political decision it was quite shrewd - no tangible downside and many upsides, domestically at least. At least it ends the facade that the U.S. was an impartial mediator in the Middle-Eastern conflicts.

Truth be told, Donald Trump's foreign policy to date has been nothing short of disastrous. It would be much better if he only stuck to domestic policy - where he has an almost flawless score, a 95% rate by my count - and withdrew from international meddling altogether. In fact, that is the very platform on which he ran!

One good bright spot from the U.S. was the head of their ministry...

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....
