Is Dictator Maduro's Pope Francis the Real "Hitler's Pope" not Pope Pius XII?

John Cromwell's book "Hitler's Pope" is a disinformation work with the narrative that Pope Pius Xll was pro-Hitler.

Rabbi David Dalin and others have "provided detailed evidence of misquotation, misrepresentation and even malice" in Cromwell's text that slanders Pius who worked against the Nazi regime. (Catholic Herald, "The end of the 'Hitler's Pope myth," March 9, 2017)

Unfortunately, it appears that Pope Francis fits the Cromwell narrative in his apparent propping up of the leftist dictator Nicolas Maduro.

First, we'll do a parody of Wikipedia's summary of "Hitler's Pope" replacing Francis for Pius then show that the facts appear to fit the parody:

The author examines the actions of Pope Francis during the leftist dictatorship era of Nicolas Maduro and explores the charges that he assisted the legitimization of the dictator's regime in Venezuela, through the pursuit of "dialogue" and silence.

He subordinated opposition to the murderous tyranny to the goal of leftist ideology. He farther argued that Francis was anti-capitalist and that this stance prevented him from caring about the brutalized and starving Venezuelan people who protested against the leftist regime.

Francis in "Laudato si" said of the free market economic system that:

"Such an economy kills"

The Pope appears to think that socialist economies such as the Venezuelan system are the model to oppose the free market system.

This may be the reason why Francis is silent about:

- the planning of government snipers to kill peaceful protesters (Miami Herald, "In secret recording Venezuelan general pushes for snipers to control demonstrators," May 18, 2017)

- of at least 70 murders by the dictatorship

-of over 3,000 arrests of demonstrators by the Maduro forces. (The Washington Post, "In Venezuela, prisoners say abuse is so bad they are forced to eat pasta mixed with excrement," June 24, 2017)

Ideology instead of reality may drive the silence.

On April 25, 2017 Caracas Chronicles.com reported:

"The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said this Monday that Venezuela is at risk of a food crisis.

It appears that it is the socialist economy that kills.

It appears ideology not reality may drive the silence of Francis.

Today even the left-leaning Crux, for a moment supported the above narrative saying as "the crisis deepens and the brutalization of the Venezuelan people continues, the curious case of Vatican diplomacy continues. The Pope goes silent."

Fr. Raymond de Souza in the article also wrote:

"As I wrote earlier, lack of clear condemnation by Pope Francis of the Maduro regime, at a time when the local bishops had been courageous, was compromising the credibility of the Holy See's diplomacy. It appeared that leftist Latin American autocrats were immune from the fierce language the Holy Father routinely uses for financiers or arms traders."

However, being true to the leftist tendencies of the website the article retreaded from the above narrative saying "Francis was following a master plan that just needed time to bear fruit." (Crux, "The curious diplomacy in Venezuela," June 24, 2017)

Top exiled Venezuelan freedom leader Professor Carlos Casanova disagrees with Crux about Francis having a master plan against the dictator.

The professor asked the Pope to stop continuously calling for Chamberlain/Hitler-like dialogues as Francis did again on June 5.

The Venezuelan exiled leader said foreign born dictator Maduro's regime had caused a food crisis in the country.

Casanova addressed the following to Francis saying:

"Nazi Germany held dialogues... just to have time to consolidate it's power... Not every use of force is violence. When you have a gang of foreign genocidal maniacs trying to starve a people... you are inciting a very evil form of violence, without perhaps realizing it, just by failure to rightly assess the situation." (Onepeterfive.com, "The Current Destruction of Venezuela & The Role of the Church," June 6, 2017)

The Miami Herald on February 8 said that Francis's dialogue and mediation efforts "legitimized... Maduro, throwing him a lifeline... Pope Francis... stop being an obstacle in restoration of democratic rule in Venezuela." (Miami Herald, "Pope Francis get out of Venezuela. You're only making things worse," February 8, 2017)

Insidious Pope Francis with Bumbling Ivereigh & Walford lead to "Dissolution, Confusion, and Death"

Insidious means to proceed "in a gradual, subtle way, but with very harmful effects." (Oxford Dictionary)

Is Pope Francis insidious in bringing about Communions to the those in adulterous "second marriages" through Amoris Laetitia?

The Pope's personally chosen Special Secretary for the synods on marriage and family Archbishop Bruno Forte revealed Francis's "gradual, subtle way" of bringing about adulterous Communions to the website Zonalcale.it:

"If we speak explicitly about communion for the divorce and remarried." Archbishop Forte, reporting on a joke of Pope Francis, "you do not know what a terrible mess we will make. So we won't speak plainly, do it in a way that the premises are there, then I will draw out the conclusions." (Zonalcale.it, May, 3 2016)

Papal biographer and Crux editor Austen Ivereigh and all of Francis's inner circle as well as loyal supporters know that Forte spilled the beans on the Pope's purpose for the synods and Amoris Laetitia.

It is a given that they have to pretend that Forte didn't reveal Francis's insidiousness.

The next step for persons that are not bumblers is to invent a convincing narrative or spin that Catholics could halfway buy.

Instead Francis supporter Ivereigh claims Stephen Walford's article for the Vatican Insider is "irrefutable." (Vatican Insider, "The Magisterium of Pope Francis: His Predecessors Come to His Defence" February 2, 2017)

Walford's central argument is that Amoris Laetitia is a case of papal ordinary magisterium and to deny it's authority is to "call into question the teaching authority of previous popes and the entire fabric of Catholicism."

He claims three great Church theologians "ruled out" that a Pope can teach heresy.

His claim that the great Fr. Francisco Suarez agreed with his thesis is worst than sloppy writing. It is the opposite of the truth.

Suarez taught "it is a given that a pope could be a formal heretic." (Crisis, "Can a Pope be a Heretic?," March 4, 2015)

Scholar James Schall, S.J. said:

"Bellarmine and Suarez considered a de facto possibility of an heretical pope. They granted that the Church would have to depose him if he did not self-declare his heresy." (The Catholic Thing, "On Heretical Popes," November 11, 2014)

Walford said St. Robert Bellarmine and St. Alphonsus Liguori agreed with him.

As Schall's quote shows Bellarmine taught that the possibility of heretical popes could be piously believed despite what the saint personally believed.

As with Bellarmine, Liguori personally believed that popes could not be heretics, but like the former he did not disallow Catholics to believe in the possibility of heretical popes.

Villanova University theologian Jessica Murdoch explains magisterium authority for Walford:

"Responding faithfully to the trans-temporal magisterium of the Church (and not just to the magisterium of one's own time) requires holding in view two other principals of interpretation. First, 'the minor gives way to the major.' Second, the 'one gives way to the many.'.. Thus, Amoris Laetitia cannot supersede the encyclical Veritatis Splendor... One must privilege the harmony of the many pontificates in union with each other, and their unanimity with the Fathers and Doctors of the Church over the one seemingly dissonant voice." (First Things, "Creeping Infallibility," 9-27-16)

The article shows that to disbelieve papal teachings that are dissonant from every single magisterium teaching in the history of the Church is the only way not to "call into question the teaching authority of previous popes and the entire fabric of Catholicism."

Resisting such dissonant papal teachings, as Amoris Laetitia, is the only way not to bring about "dissolution, confusion, and death" into the Church.

In the same article, Murdoch said:

"By contrast, doctrinal evolution in which a new teaching sublates and eliminates the earlier teaching in a quasi-Hegelian fashion breeds dissolution, confusion, and death."

Pope Francis's & Barron's "Love Affair" with Luther's Dung/Grace Heresy & their Denial of Catholic Grace/Justification

Martin Luther, the father of the Protestant movement, believed in the heresy of imputed grace justification.

Luther's image of imputed grace was that man was a pile of dung covered with snow.

Protestant "justification" for him was totally corrupted man being covered by grace and unfree because of his corruption to fulfill the moral law.

Bishop Robert Barron on June 13 wrote Martin Luther is "a mystic of grace" and "the religious movement he launched was 'a love affair.'"

Pope Francis's love affair with Luther's justification heresy goes even farther than Barron who said "I disagree with lots of his ideas."

Francis referring to Luther said:

"Lutherans and Catholics, Protestants, all of us agree on the doctrine of justification. On this point, which is very important, he did not err." (patheos.com/blog/scotticalt, "Pope Francis is Wrong about Luther and Justification," April 5, 2017)

Francis & Barron need to explain what part of man being a pile of dung covered with snow (grace) so corrupt that he isn't free to fulfill the moral law is "not err" and a "love affair" of a "mystic of grace."

Theologian Dr. E. Christian Brugger and First Thing editor Elliott Milco agree that Francis's grace/justification teachings in Amoris Laetitia and his Argentine letter apparently are condemned as heretical by the Council of Trent.

Milco in his article "Francis's Argentine Letter And The Proper Response" counters Francis's idea of grace with the infallible Catholic teaching which says:

Trent's doctrine of infused grace said "that graces truly sanctify and liberates, and that baptized Christians are always free to fulfill the moral law, even when they fail to do so."

Pope Francis is denying the very concept of Catholic sanctifying grace and justification.

This is the greatest material error by any Pope is the entire history of the Church.

It needs to be "loudly and forcefully condemned" or it will lead to apostasy and will destroy the vast majority of Catholicism like it did European Protestantism.

Today, former Congregation for the Doctrine consultor Msgr. Nicola Bux under Pope Benedict XVI told Vatican expert Edward Pentin:

Pope Francis could stem the 'confusion and apostasy"... by 'correcting' his own 'ambiguous and erroneous words and acts." (lifesitenews.com, "Only Pope Francis can end the 'apostasy' his words caused: Italian monsignor," June 21, 2017)

"Dante's Warning": Burke & Cardinals Remember that "Darkest places in Hell... for... Neutrality in Times of Moral Crisis" says Vatican Expert

Before we get to the Vatican expert statement in this post we need to rehash a previous post:

If Francis or any Pope "formally professed heresy," he would "automatically" cease to be Pope" according to Cardinal Raymond Burke.
(Catholic World Report on December 19, 2016)

On December 23, 2016 Cardinal Walter Brandmuller, one of the four Cardinals of the dubia, said:

"Whoever thinks that persistent adultery and reception of Holy Communion are compatible is a heretic and promotes schism."[https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/dubia-cardinal-anyone-who-opens-communion-to-adulterers-is-a-heretic-and-pr]

What Brandmuller declared is a heretical position is Pope Francis's heretical position unless he corrects the Argentina Bishop Msgr. Macin who he appointed in 2013.

Unless Francis formally corrects the apparent heretical position which Bishop Macin announced is Francis's position he risks correction and could "automatically" cease to be Pope by the judgment of the College of Cardinals according to Burke. (To read the previous post click below.)[http://catholicmonitor.blogspot.com/2016/12/if-kasper-is-right-then-pope-francis.html?m=1]

Rotate Caeli reported:

Macin "publicly announced that according to norms send in a letter 6 months ago by Pope Francis... the... divorced and remarried... (by order of the Pope) To Include Them In Full And Sacramental Communion... in the ceremony. At no point was mention made that those people had taken a vow of chastity... "

"In the same way, communion was given to all those mentioned (some 30 couples)." (Rotate Caeli.com, June 13, 2017, "Breaking: Argentinian Bishop Organizes Special Mass to Give Communion to Adulterous Couples, Cites Pope Francis")

If it is true that the 30 divorced and " remarried" couples have not made a vow of chastity, then the Pope must stop the adulterous Communions.

The Bishop Macin adulterous Communion "ceremony" must be corrected by Pope Francis or the four Cardinals must issue the correction to the Pope if there is no vow of chastity involved with the "ceremony." (Life Site News has confirmed the Rotate Caeli report.)

The moral crisis, and "doctrinal anarchy" as Vatican expert Edward Pentin wrote of yesterday, in the Church caused by Francis has reached the point where all faithful Catholics must plea that Cardinal Burke and the four Cardinals issue the correction.

That is the purpose of this post.

A Vatican expert who has met Pope Francis and wishes to remain anonymous gave the Catholic Monitor a impassioned statement to this purpose saying:

"Raymond Burke is the epitome of humility, holiness and brilliance."

"I love Cardinal Burke, but I've run out of patience. I am in the spitting nails mood after the latest Pontifical Academy for Life abortion advocate appointment."

This impassioned statement is titled End the Bergoglio Borgata:

The persistent silence of the College of Cardinals and the Bishops signifies their cowardice and neutrality. They invoke omerta in the face of the Bergoglio Borgata which has knee-capped the Catholic Church, decimating it with modernism and secular populism.  The Cardinals seemingly choke with fear as Francis supplants the Magisterium with his own doctrinal brand of liberation theology. They watch silently as he guts the FFI, the Knights of Malta, the Pontifical Academies, and stacks the  College of Cardinals with his liberal lackeys to ensure that Francis minions dominate the Chair of Peter for generations.

How often have we heard cardinals, bishops and priests whisper, 'we will wait Francis out, he is old, and has only one lung.' 

How’s that strategy working? 

How much more destruction are you willing to endure, silently watching, remaining neutral in this time of moral crisis in the Catholic Church?

Remember the words of St. Cajetan, “you must resist the Pope who openly destroys the Church.” 

While the clerics sit on the sidelines, the laity is not content to watch Rome burn during this papacy, knowing that the true scandal is not the vociferous criticism of Francis; the real scandal is the papacy of Jorge Bergoglio and the complicit silence of the hierarchy.

And, questions persist about the hierarchy.

Is there a real man left in the Vatican to speak up and save Holy Mother Church from this disastrous papacy ? 

Is it too much to ask you to lay down your riches, titles, and honor, at the end of your earthly lives, for Holy Mother Church? 

Are you content to be made a laughingstock with your Dubia Demand which goes ignored and unanswered for nearly 9 months? 

Are there any men in the College of Cardinals left who are willing to fight for Holy Mother Church, like the legions of men in the traditional Catholic blogoshere?

Knowing that the St. Gallen Mafia plotted and schemed the spurious election of Bergoglio, why would you, Cardinals passively condone his scandalous appointments, his heretical pronouncements, and his tyrannical firings, without speaking out in united protest? 

It’s time to break the code of silence.  ‘Show up Time’ has long past. Time to put on your big boy pants and blow the lid off this modernist and heretical papacy. The Resistance is upon us.

What does the Resistance look like? 

The Rome Midnight Poster Brigade was a good first start.

The Dubia Demand offered hope and clarity, but unanswered remains a hollow threat. 

Creativity, bravery, and prayer are required to launch an offensive to SAVE OUR CHURCH.

Bergoglio is increasingly vulnerable, exposed, and obviously flawed. The time is long over to stop protecting this papal wrecking ball who scandalizes the faithful every time he opens his mouth. 

Who could forget the merciful Francis who haughtily chastised Cardinal Mueller, “I am the Pope, I don’t have to give you reasons for firing your 3 best priests at the CDF.”  Hardly the  conciliatory and humble words of a man who espouses dialogue and consultation.  As Aesop cautioned, “any excuse will serve a tyrant.” 

Time to shed the comfort of your mitre, your title, and your coat of arms. 

Have you forgotten that Dante warned that “the darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis?” 

In the words of St Catherine of Siena, “Proclaim the truth and don’t be silent through fear.”

Top Venezuelan: Pope Francis Stop "Inciting... Evil" by "Communists" with call for Hitler/Chamberlain-like "Dialogue""

Exiled top Venezuelan freedom leader Professor Carlos Casanova fled the country after he "received warnings and threats" from the leftist government.

He is pleading with Pope Francis to stop propping up the leftist tyranny.
(Onepeterfive.com, "The Current Destruction of Venezuela & The Role of the Church" by Carlos A. Casanova, June 6, 2017)

In the article for Onepeterfive.com, Professor Casanova explained in detail how the Chamberlain/Hitler-like dialogues that Pope Francis keeps calling for, and again called for on June, 5, are keeping the Colombian born tyrant and his regime in power.

Foreign born dictator Maduro's government is starving the poor people of Venezuela to the point that they are eating rats said the professor.

Casanova, hoping to save his country, wrote:

"I address the following to Pope Francis:"

"Totalitarian movements use dialogue just as an excuse to disarm the adversary, and only when they feel weak. Nazi Germany held dialogues... just to have time to consolidate its power... Once Hitler felt strong, he did not dialogue. The Communists in Venezuela do the same... The people of Venezuela have the right to legitimate self-defense."

"Not every use of force is violence. When you have a gang of foreign genocidal maniacs trying to starve a people to death... you are inciting a very evil form of violence, perhaps without realizing it, just by the failure to rightly assess the situation."

Pope Francis and Nihilism

Does Pope Francis believe that there is no "possibility of an objective basis for truth" and that there is no objective meaning or reality? (Dictionary.com definitions of nihilism)

The nihilist Michel de Certeau believed in all of the above.

The present Pope considers him the most eminent modern theologian. Francis said:

"For me, de Certeau is still the greatest theologian for today." (onepeterfive.com, March 8, 2016, "Pope Francis Reveals His Mind to Private Audience")

De Certeau in his greatest book "Heterologies" said:

"It is not Mr. Foucault who is making fun of domains of knowledge... It is history that is laughing at them. It plays tricks on the teleologists who take themselves to be the lieutenants of meaning. A meaninglessness of history." ("Heterologogies," Pages 195-196)

Historian Keith Windschuttle shows that the Pope's favorite modern theologian is a radical who thinks that there is no outside reality. Windschuttle wrote:

"Of all the French theorists... de Certeau is the most radical. He is critical of the poststructuralist Foucault for his use of documentary evidence and of Derrida for the way he privileges the practice of writing. For de Certeau, writing is a form of oppression... he argues... writing itself constitutes the act of colonisation..."

"Like both structuralist and poststructuralist theorists, de Certeau subscribes to the thesis that we have access only to our language and not to any real, outside world..."

"De Certeau claims that writing can never be objective. Its status is no different from that of fiction. So, because history is a form of writing, all history is also fiction." ("The Killing of History," Pages 31-34)

By Francis's greatest modern theologian's logic then Jesus Christ, true God and true man, who walked the earth during the reign of Pontius Pilate is fiction.

The central doctrine of Catholism, the Incarnation, is fiction.

Post Structuralists like de Certeau, more widely known as Postmodernists, believe all reality is fiction or "narrative."

They change the "narrative" or story usually to compile with their leftist or liberal views on politics, sexual morality or whatever their pet project happens to be.

They rarely use scholarship to backup their "narrative" point of view, only mind numbing long confusing writing that obscures instead of clarifying.

The Postmodernists in the media are one exception to the obscurantism of non-clarity.

Their "narratives" are clear and well written, but again rarely is there scholarship or strong evidence to backup their stories. They use spin to obscure.

Media spin "narrative" is "news and information that is manipulated or slanted to affect its interpretation and influence public opinion." (Dictionary.com)

They usually use their "narratives" in history, news, the Bible and any writing as a vehicle to promote their ideological ideas.

With that background, here is the Pope's favorite theologian's central religious ideas. The de Certeau Scholar Johannes Hoff wrote:

"According to this new approach to the Biblical narrative, the focal event of Christianity is not the incarnation, the crucifixion, or the resurrection of Christ, but the empty tomb. The Christian form of life is no longer associated with a place, a body, or an institution, but with a quest for a missing body: the missing body of the people of Israel, and mutatis mutandis the missing body of Jesus."
(Article by Johannes Hoff, "Mysticism, Ecclesiology And The Body Christ: Certeau's (Mis-) Reading of Corpus Mystium and the Legacy of Henri de Lubac" Page 87, Titus Brandsma Institute Studies In Spirituality, Supplement 24, "Spiritual Spaces: History and Mysticism in Michel De Certeau")

The nihilist theologian believes that the central truths of Christianity are about "absence" or nonexistence. De Certeau scholar Graham Ward wrote:

"For de Lubac the... Eucharist is not a sign of the presence of Christ's body, it is Christ's body... And yet Certeau... makes the Eucharist (as later the church and body of mystical text he treats) into substitutes, acts of bereavement, signs of absence." ("Michel de Certeau - in the Plural, " Page 511)

In other words, Francis's greatest modern theologian believes that the Eucharist is not the body of Christ present, he doesn't even believe it is a sign of the presence of Christ's body like some Protestants, but a sign of "absence."

Might de Certeau's influence on Francis be the reason he never kneels before the Eucharist, but kneels to wash the feet of those he like Certeau might consider oppressed?

De Certeau's influence on Francis may be the reason he reportedly said:

"It is not excluded that I will enter history as the one who split the Catholic Church." (Der Spiegel magazine, December, 23, 2016)

De Certeau scholar Frederick Christian Bauerschmidt wrote:

"Certeau... came increasingly to stress the clash of interpretation, the "law of conflict," that applies even to the church. Under the pressure of this clash, the ecclesial/eucharistic body is "shattered." ("Michael de Certeau - in the Plural", Page 359)

Francis's greatest modern theologian doesn't believe in the central truths of the Catholic Church.

The Pope's most eminent modern theologian doesn't even believe in objective truth.

Does Francis believe in the central doctrines of the Catholic Church or in objective truth?

The question needs to be asked:

If the Pope is a disciple of de Certeau and Postmodernism, then what ultimately do he and these thinkers believe in?

Philosopher Stephen Hicks said:

The "Left thinkers of the 1950s and 1960s... Confronted by the continued poverty and brutality of socialism, they could either go with the evidence and reject their most cherish ideals - or stick by their ideals and attack the whole idea that evidence and logic matter..."

"Postmodernism is born of the marriage of Left politics and skeptical epistemology..."

"Then, strikingly, postmodernism turns out not to be relativistic at all. Relativism becomes part of a rhetorical political strategy, some Machiavellian realpolitik employed to throw the opposition off track..."

"Here it is useful to recall Derrida: 'deconstruction never had any meaning... than as a radicalization... within the tradition of a certain Marxism, in a certain spirit of Marxism.'" ("Explaining Postmodernism," Page 90, 186)

For Postmodernists like de Certeau, Derrida, Foucault and possibly Francis, if he is their disciple, falsehood or truth doesn't matter.

The only thing that matters is achieving power for their liberal or leftist ideology.

Internationally renowned theologian Dr. Tracey Rowland said Francis's "decision - making process" outlined in Evangelii Gaudium is "the tendency to give priority to praxis over theory."

She states that chapter eight of Amoris Laetitia "might be described as the praxis chapter rather than a theory chapter." Theory meaning Catholic doctrine.

The renowned theologian asks how footnote 351 of Amoris Laetitia "can be consistent with paragraph eighty-four of John Paul II's Apostolic Exhortation Familiaris consortio and paragraph twenty-nine of Benedict XVI's Apostolic Exhortation Sacramentum Caritatis? A pastoral crisis may arise if the lay faithful and their priests have to choose between... two Popes (John Paul II and Benedict XVI) on one side, and a third Pope (Pope Francis) on the other." ("Catholic Theology," Page 192, 198, 199)

The choice appears to be between the infallible doctrines of the Catholic Church or praxis "theology."

Rowland says "praxis types agree in rejecting classical metaphysics." She then explains praxis ideology or "theology":

"Doctrinal theory is at best extrinsic and secondary. The reflex character of theory-praxis tends toward a reduction of theory to reflection on praxis as variously understood. The normativity tends toward an identification of Christianity with modern, secular (liberal or Marxist) process." ("Catholic Theology," Page174)

If what the internationally renowned theologian is saying is true of Pope Francis and praxis "theology," then the Church is in the greatest crisis in history.

The Church has a Pope who has betrayed Jesus Christ and His Gospel for the world.

Francis has exchanged the Gospel of Jesus Christ for "secular (liberal or Marxist)" ideology.

Pray for the Church, the beloved bride of Jesus Christ.

Liberal: Hypocrite Pope Francis's "Smiling Face" for Leftist Dictators Shows Acceptance

Liberal Fabiolas Santiago who has "been critical of Trump" said that President Trump "got what he deserved: the cold shoulder" from the Pope.

In a article for the Miami Herald Santiago said Francis had a "smiling face" for dictators and a disdainful face for the President, but no "matter how I dislike President Trump... he was democratically elected. "

In the article he wrote:

I like Pope Francis, but when it comes to strongmen, he plays the hypocrite card..."

"But the Cuban and Venezuelan people desperately need his moral authority... Pope Francis' warmth toward the Castros, seen under the light of the Trump scorn, sends a message to the world that their rule is acceptable. " (Miami Herald, May 26, 2017, "If only Pope Francis treated dictators with the disdain he showed President Trump")

Oscar the Grouch Maradiaga's Bizarre Rant "Signals Desperation" says Vatican Expert

A Vatican expert who has met Pope Francis told me:

"There's an old saying: the louder they scream, the scare-der they are. This applies to Oscar the Grouch."

"Maradiaga's unprovoked, caustic, low blow at Burke is simply bizarre, but it signals to me that they are losing their popularity. Oscar's rant signals desperation. He senses the wind is shifting away from the merciful Pope."

"The fact that Burke is still around, gaining traction and the voice of the Resistance is infuriating them."

According to the source who wishes to remain anonymous, "Francis is very thin skinned." The "series of Resistance conferences in Rome's steps" and the "band of bloggers" is getting "under his skin."

The Vatican expert's advice to the Resistance and the band of bloggers:

"Keep the heat on."

Is Pope Francis a Heretic like Pope Honorius who was Condemned by a General Council and by Pope St. Agatho and Pope St. Leo II?

The Catholic Encyclopedia said of Honorius that he "was not a profound theologian, and allowed himself to be confused and mislead." (edwardfeser.blogspot, December 18, 2016, "Denial flows into the Tiber")

Theologian Tracey Rowland wrote that Pope Francis before the papacy said "I can't imagine anything more boring" than Fundamental Theology. She quoted Ross Douthat saying:

"Francis is clearly a less systematic thinker than...his predecessors" to the papacy. (Catholic Theology, page 192)

In other words, the present Pope is not a profound theologian and can allow himself to be confused and mislead like the earlier Pope.

Pope Honorius wrote a ambiguous document to please the Monothelitist heretics, but not clearly contradicting Catholic teaching.

He then allowed the heresy to spread and confuse the faithful.

The heretics taught Jesus had only a Divine will.

The Church teaching is that Jesus has both a human will and a Divine will.

Francis wrote a ambiguous document, Amoris Laetitia, to please those promoting the Kasperite error, but not clearly contradicting Catholic teaching.

He then allowed the error to spread and confuse the faithful.

The Kasperites teach that those in adulterous sexually active second "marriages" could continue to commit objective mortal sin and receive Holy Communion without reforming their sinful habits.

The Kasperites argue there might not be a objective mortal sin because subjectively one might not know it is a sin so they may receive Communion.

The Church counters the Kasperite subjective argument by teaching that those committing any objective mortal sins such as adultery or homosexual sexual acts who are subjectively unaware of the gravity of the sins must have their conscience formed.

The sinner is informed of the Catholic moral teachings that adultery or any homosexual sexual acts are gravely sinful.

After their conscience is formed then the person must confess the sins and make a firm resolution not to commit the sins before receiving Communion.

An example, of how absurd is the Kasper proposal is murder.

By their argument, the murderer could continue murdering and receive Communion so long as he didn't objectively know murder was a mortal sin.

Theologian Rowland shows how profoundly erroneous is Francis's promotion of the Kasper proposal:

"Kasper's arguments based on alleged Patristic-era antecedents were heavily criticised by eminent Patristic scholars, and... the idea was strongly opposed by both of his papal predecessors." (Catholic Theology, page 196)

Will Francis's support of the Kasper error lead him into becoming another Honorius and to be condemned as a heretic?

The great Catholic theologian Abbott John Chapman in the Dublin Review of 1906 said:

"Unquestionably no Catholic has the right to deny that Honorius was a heretic... a heretic in word, if not in intention... It would no doubt be uncharitable to regard the Pope as a "private heretic"; but his letters, treated as definitions of faith, are obviously and beyond doubt heretical, for in a definition it is the words that matter." (edwardfeser.blogspot, December 18, 2017, "Denial flows into the Tiber")

Even more important, Pope Honorius was condemned a general council and Pope St. Agatho and Pope St. Leo II. Leo said:

"We anathematize the inventors of the new error... and also Honorius, who did not attempt to sanctify this Apostolic Church with the teaching of Apostolic tradition, but by profane treachery permitted it's purity to be polluted." (edwardfeser.blogspot, December 18, 2017, "Denial flows from the Tiber")

Will Pope Francis be condemned by a future general council and pope?

The Catholic philosopher Edward Feser put it best:

"As Ed Peters argues, one ought to be very cautious about accusing Pope Francis (or any other Pope) of heresy. But one need not think the Pope guilty of heresy to see that there are striking parallels between the current controversy over Amoris Laetitia and the historical events summarized above."

"Pope Honorius and Pope John XXII faced criticism and resistance as a result of statements perceived to be doctrinally problematic - in Honorius's case from bishops of his day (at the sixth general council)..."

"As Honorius could tell you, sometimes it is what the next Pope does that matters most." (edwardfeser.blogspot, December 18, 2017, "Denial flows into the Tiber")

Is Pope Francis's Top Adviser Maradiaga in the Gay Mafia?

Cardinal Oscar Maradiaga, called the Vice-Pope by many, is the head of Pope Francis's nine Cardinal inner circle to reform the Vatican.

According to journalist Christine Niles:

"Maradiaga was also longtime head of Caritas International...which happens to be a member of the governing body of the World Social Forum - a Communist, pro-homosexual group." (ChurchMilitant.com, August 14, 2017)

The Vice-Pope in September 2015 was head of a conference whose main purpose was to promote "the abstruse positions of Cardinal Walter Kasper." (LifeSiteNews.com, August 10, 2015, "Close papal adviser heads conference attacking Church's moral teachings")

For those like Maradiaga who are Kasperites, it appears that the ultimate purpose of the Kasper Proposal is to impose the gay mafia agenda on Catholic moral teachings.

Fr. Zuhlsdord at his website on April 16, 2016 posted:

The " Trojan Horse Archbishop Bruno Forte stealthily snuck into the Synod's Interim Report... of the 2014 Synod...was the moment when many of us knew that 'homosexuality' was the bigger issue with the Kasperites...This is still the Kasper strategy."

It appears that the Kasperite Maradiaga who was the longtime head the organization that was a member of the pro-homosexual group may be in the gay mafia.

If the Vice-Pope is not a card carrying member of the homosexual mafia, it appears that he may support their agenda that would undermine Catholic moral doctrine.

Pope Francis & Maradiaga are Silent as Venezuelan "Economy Kills" & Murders

As Socialist Dictator Maduro's generals "issues orders" to kill using "snipers against anti-government protesters" calling for food and democracy, anti-free market Pope Francis and his closest adviser Cardinal Oscar Maradiaga are silent. (Miami Herald, May 18, 2017, "In secret recording Venezuelan general pushes for snipers to control demonstrators")

Francis in "Laudato si" said of the free market economic system that:

"Such an economy kills."

Maradiaga agreed with the left leaning papal economic statement saying:

"This economy kills."

Both appear to think that socialist economies such as the Venezuelan system are the model to oppose the free market system.

This may be the reason why both are silent about:

-the planning of government snipers to kill peaceful protesters

-of at least 40 murders by the dictatorship

-of over a thousand arrests of demonstrators by the Maduro forces.

Ideology instead of reality may drive the silence.

On April 25, 2017 Caracas Chronicles.com reported:

"The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said this Monday that Venezuela is at risk of a food crisis."

It appears that it is the socialist economy that kills.

It appears ideology not reality may drive the silence of Francis and Maradiaga.

Venezuelan Dictator's Violence & Pope Francis's Silence vs. Venezuelan People's Protest for Freedom

Nicolas Maduro is trying to save his dictatorship by accusing "his country's bishops of ignoring Pope Francis's call for dialogue." (Crux, May 15, 2017)

The left leaning Pope Francis appears by his silence to be willing to allow Maduro to use his words as propaganda to prolong the ruling leftist dictatorship.

The Pope remains silent even as the liberal CNN has video of leftist government tanks mowing down Venezuelan protestors on Google.

The papacy remains silent as the vast majority of the people of Venezuela are calling for democracy.

Francis remains silent despite the Vatican Secretary of State Pietro Parolin on Saturday saying:

"I believe that elections are the only solution." (Crux, May 13, 2017)

Maduro is refusing to hold free elections despite the Vatican Secretary of State statement.

As the Venezuelan protestors calling for freedom are arrested and killed by the dictator and as the papal words are used as propaganda, Pope Francis's response is:

Silence.

If the Pope called for Maduro to step down, the dictatorship would in all probability end.

However, Francis by choosing silence, appears to be propping up the dictator.

Venezuela and Pope Francis's Bloody Hands


As Jesus suffered under Pontius Pilate so it appears that Venezuela suffered under Pope Francis.

Were Pilate's hands innocent of the blood of Jesus after he washed his hands in water?

Are Francis's hands innocent of the Venezuelan victim's blood after his so-called negotiations?

Vatican expert Sandro Magister counts 40 dead, 1,000 wounded and "the growing systematic aggression against...the Catholic Church...death threats and blasphemous graffiti on the walls of churches" as Francis allows Socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro to crucify his own countrymen as they plead for democracy. (Magister.blog, "Pontius Pilate Has Reappeared In Venezuela," May 11, 2017)

The Vatican expert confirmed "Pope Francis has been punctually informed about everything" happening in the country directly by the Venezuelan bishops.

The bishops have "disappointment and anger" against Francis's April 29 statement which "practically blamed" the "Venezuelan opposition groups" for the breakdown of the papal negotiations when it was Maduro "who has not wanted to meet any of these conditions" of the negotiations while the opposition groups agreed to all the Vatican conditions.

It appears that the left leaning Francis is propping up the bloody leftist dictator according to the Vatican expert. Magister said:

"The fact is that between Pope Francis and the Venezuelan bishops, concerning the crisis that is ravaging the country, there is a abyss. The bishops stand with the population that is protesting against dictatorship, and are respected and listened to as authoritative guides. While Bergoglio is judged on a par with Pontius Pilate."

Pope Francis/Bill Clinton Crimes vs. Bill O' Reilly/Bishop Finn Crimes

If Pope Francis and Bill Clinton were Bill O'Reilly and Bishop Robert Finn would they have been fired or forced to resign?

Put in other ways:

Do the crimes of O'Reilly/Finn pale in comparison to the crimes of Clinton/Francis?

Do the the alleged sexually inappropriate acts of the conservative Bill O'Reilly appear lightweight compared to the gravity of the liberal Clinton's alleged sexual crimes?

Does the so-called cover-up of conservative Bishop Finn appear lightweight compared to the gravity of the liberal Pope Francis's act of placing youths at risk to a known sexual predator?

Sex abuse experts psychologist Gerard van den Aardweg and Rick Fitzgerald M.D. reported:

"Pope Francis' restoring to priestly ministry an Italian priest Fr. Mauro Inzoli, who was laicized by Pope Benedict XVI for homosexually abusing adolescent males. After his priestly facilities were restored, he again repeated his homosexual abuse of youth, was arrested and imprisoned."

In the United States, a member of the hierarchy who deliberately places youth at risk of abuse by a known sexual predator is expected to resign." (Lifesitenews, March 6,2017)

The website Veneremurcernui reviewed the Finn case:

"Bishop Finn followed legal protocol and advice in his treatment of defrocked Fr. Shawn Ratigan, and removed him from service after he was found to have taken upskirt photos of underage girls. But Fr. Ratigan repeated his (comparatively minor) crime and the KC media...mounted a relentless campaign of destruction." (veneremurcerni.word.com, April 27, 2017)

Freedom Outpost reported:

Juanita "Broaddrick claims that Bill Clinton raped her twice in a hotel room in 1978 and that Hillary Clinton was involved in covering it up." (FreedomOutPost.com, April 25, 2017)

The left wing Daily Beast reviewed the boorish sexual-harassment claims against O'Reilly:

-"O'Reilly tried to kiss her."

- Accused "O'Reilly of proportioning her."

--"O'Reilly called her "hot chocolate" (she was black) and would grunted and leer at her"

- "O'Reilly had made unwanted advances at her."

-"O'Reilly would masturbate while on the phone with Mackris." (TheDailyBeast.com, April 19,2017)

The allegations against O'Reilly if true are boorish and very wrong, but they are not the serious crimes of two times raping a woman which entails prison time.

To be fair to Clinton and O'Reilly in the United States you are not guilty until proven so in a court of law.

The case against Bishop Finn is plainly unjust. There is no reason he should have been forced to resign.

Pope Francis if he was a United States bishop would have been "expected to resign."

"Nake Corruption": Pope Francis "Practically" Controlled by German Bishops in Attempt to Destroy Malta Knights

ChurchMilitant.com on April 27 reported that a internal document of the Knights of Malta revealed that financially corrupt Malta Knights enlisted the help of "dissident Germans" lead by Cardinal Marx to bring about their return to power using German financial leverage to "manipulate" Pope Francis.

After their full return to power they intend to destroy the Knights according to the article.

The piece farther reported:

"'German bishops practically control the Vatican because they are so rich and the Vatican is so poor'...The document implies that Von Boeselager was able to convince Cdl. Marx along with figures of influence in Rome to manipulate the Holy See into deposing Festing and reinstating Von Boeselager...at the heart of the maneuvers to oust Festing was a sweetheart deal...by one Ariane Slinger, a wealthy Swiss  lawyer"

Festing had to be removed because he was "concerned about the ethical implications" and refused the corrupt deal involving Boeselager as well as his corrupt Knights and because he suspended their ring leader.

At this time Slinger was being sued by the Malta Knights and others. She started making threats that "if she was continued to be sued" that "she would tell the world what she knew about those internal Vatican financial dealings."

The article says that the "very men" involved with the 30-million franc Slinger unethical deal with Boeselager "now being handled by the Vatican Bank," Abp. Silvano Tomaso, Marc Downfall and Marwen Senhaoul, were members of the papal commission that brought about Festing's fall and Boeselager's reinstatement after his suspension.

The internal document titled " The Knights Of Malta, Chancellor Von Boeselager, And A Financial Scandal Involving High Vatican Officials" said:

"This is naked corruption at the highest levels...The next step is the plan of the 'German Interest' to secularize and emasculate the Order of Malta and turn it into a mere NGO...If that succeeds then the Order of Malta will be no more"

Is Pope Francis Apparently Propping up Venezuelan Dictator after Murders and Arrests?

Even left-leaning Crux.com is worried that Pope Francis's apparent propping up of Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro is ruining his Catholic credibility. Crux said:

"Government goons...entering parish churches to disrupt Masses...If the Holy See does not adopt a tougher line against Maduro, it would make Francis's economic interventions appear ideologically leftist rather than rooted in Catholic social teaching."(Crux.com, April 24)

Crux fears Francis will " appear" leftist rather than Catholic because he is apparently propping up a Venezuelan dictatorship that has killed 31 citizens and arrested 1,365 non-violent Venezuelan protesters because they want democracy and food to feed their children according to Caracas Chronicles.com.

The website reported:

"The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said this Monday that Venezuela is at risk of a food crisis." (Caracas Chronicles.com, April 25)

The Miami Herald on February 8 said that Francis's 2016 mediation effort "legitimized...Maduro, throwing him a lifeline...Pope Francis...stop being an obstacle in restoration of democratic rule in Venezuela."

As the dictator sacrilegiously disrupts Masses, kills and arrests citizens as they peacefully protest for democracy and food, the talkative Francis offers the Venezuelan victims:

Silence.

The Pope is never short of words when he alleges that democratic capitalistic governments are oppressing the poor.

Maybe the left-leaning Crux is right about the appearances.

Maybe Francis is not just apparently "ideologically" a "leftist" and is afraid to speak out for the poor being oppressed by the socialist dictator because it might hurt the socialist and anti-capitalist cause.

Crux is extremely pro-Francis and has access to his many in his inner circle.

The website seems to be saying that the effectiveness of the Pope's anti-capitalist rhetoric will decline if he "appears" to be "ideologically" a "leftist" rather than devouted to Catholic social teachings.

All persons of good will need to pray for the suffering people of Venezuela as they are victimized by their own government.

We must pray for them as they suffer hunger, arrest as well as murder and call for an end to the tyranny.

If Francis continues to refuse to call for an end to the tyranny in Venezuela, he needs much prayer as do the victims.

Update:

The Pope is still apparently propping up the murderous Venezuelan dictatorship.

On April 30, Pope Francis refused to condemn the tyrant Maduro for his murders, arrests and socialist caused food crisis.

It appears that Francis threw the dictatorship another lifeline calling for negotiations and incredibly  blaming "the government and all the components of the Venezuelan society" for Maduro's violence.

In other words, the peaceful protestors calling for food for their children and democracy are equally to blame for the dictatorship's violence (murders and arrests).

Francis called to "the government and all the components of the Venezuelan society so that every further form of violence is avoided, human rights are respected and negotiated solutions sought." (Crux.com, April 30)

Imagine if Pope Pius XII had equally blamed "the government and all components of the" German society for the Nazi government and goons violence (murders and arrests).

Pope Francis, the Gay Mafia and the Italian Mafia Excommunication



Pope Francis strolls hand in hand with the anti-gangster and gay rights advocate Fr. Luigi Ciotti.

-Updated June 18, 2017-


Today, The Telegraph reported that Pope Francis has a commission drafting doctrine for "excommunicating" the Italian Mafia.

Is Francis following the lead of the gay/feminist "antimafia" movement in Italy?

This movement is spearheaded by "Rosario Crocetta, Sicily's openly gay governor and antimafia activist... That normative order effaces queer, gay and feminist antimafia protests. That 'taste' for justice and civility' spoken of by don Luigi Coitti" according to author Robin Pinkering-lazzi. ("The Italian Antimafia, New Media, the Culture of Legality," 2017, books.google.com)

It appears that Francis may be following the lead of the Italian gay movement against the Mafia and the gay mafia within the Catholic Church against moral doctrine.

Author and gay mafia expert Fr. Dariusz Oko according to ChurchMilitant.com affirmed that homosexual clerics "control...many diocese." Oko said:

"There is...a problem with homosexual bishops...There is a gay mafia...They create informal unions, and they infiltrate the Church." (ChurchMilitant.com, April 18, 2017)

Has the gay mafia infiltrated the diocese of Rome and do they control Pope Francis?

Vatican expert Sandro Magister said Francis has a "number of homosexual priests in the inner circle of his closest collaborators and confidants." (Chiesa.espressolineit.com, December 16, 2016)

Bishop Battista Ricca, for example, was appointed by Francis as head of the Vatican Bank. The Bishop is "well known for homosexual conduct." (Lifesitenews.com, July 14, 2015)

The appointment of the gay Bishop to run the Vatican Bank was "a totally personal one made by Francis" according to Asia News.

The Pope, after a long day of papal work, goes home to the homosexual Ricca who is the head of Francis's personal "residence at the Casa Santa Marta hotel." (Asianews.it.com, 06/26/2013)

On March 21, 2014, in his desire to accompany someone who is a "strong promoter of homosexuality" and gay rights who "participates in a 'gay parade'" as well as is promoted and better known as fighting the Italian Mafia, Francis decided to pay homage to Fr. Luigi Ciotti. (The Vatican promoted the Ciotti visit as a anti-ganster event.)

Ciotti is a advocate or "a strong promoter of homosexuality...of 'gay marriage' and the adoption of children by homosexuals." (Vebuumdei.blogspot.com, June 23, 2014)

Two very telling photos of Pope Francis and Ciotti can be viewed if one googles: Fr. Luigi Ciotti.

Francis is actually holding hands with the priest, who is a gay rights advocate, as they stroll.

Just because the Pope's home is run by a bishop "well known for homosexual conduct" and he holds hands as he strolls with a gay rights advocate doesn't necessarily mean he is controlled by a gay mafia agenda.

Unfortunatedly, another of Francis's appointments after Ricca begins to show a pattern of homosexual activist influence on papal policy.

The Pope's appointment of Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia to head the Pontifical Council for Life showed the direction of papal policy.

Archbishop Paglia's coat of arms features the gay activist symbol of the rainbow and he commissioned a gay artist to paint a massive "homoerotic" pornographic mural at his former cathedral.

Lifesitenews.com reported the mural depicts:

"Jesus carrying nets to heaven filled with naked and semi-nude homosexuals, transexuals, prostitutes, and drug dealers, jumbled together in erotic interactions." (Lifesitenews, March 3, 2017)

In the painting is the homosexual image of a shirtless Paglia affectionately embracing a naked man. (Lifesitenews, March 16, 2017)

If Paglia was painted affectionately embracing a naked woman that would be a heterosexual image. There is no dought it is a homosexual image of the Archbishop.

This is not the end of Pope Francis's appointee to head the Pontifical Council for Life exploits in the homoerotic.

Psychologist Gerard van den Aardweg and sex abuse expert Rick Fitzgerald M.D., in an article titled "Is the pontificate of Francis in the clutches of the gay lobby?" wrote that Paglia produced  a sex education program that "contained homoerotic and heterosexual pornography which was like that employed by adult predators of youth." (Lifesitenews, March 6, 2017)

The Paglia pornographic sex ed program called Meeting Point was released with the "apparent approval" of Francis on World Youth Day accordingly to the article.

The two sex abuse experts said the "homoerotic and heterosexual" porn predator like program "should be withdrawn as soon as possible by the Vatican and its website closed."

It is beginning to appear that Pope Francis just might be under the influence of his "homosexual...inner circle of...collaborators and confidants" who could be pushing the gay activist agenda.

Fr. Zuhlsdord at his website on April 16, 2016 posted:

"Pope Francis made it clear to everyone that he was backing the Kasper Proposal and Pope Francis knows how to use his absolute power!"

Fr. Z in the same article showed why Francis used his "absolute power" to attempt to bring about the ultimate purpose of the Kasper Proposal:

The "Trojan Horse Archbishop Bruno Forte stealthily snuck into the Synod's Interim Report... of the 2014 Synod...was the moment when many of us knew that 'homosexuality' was the bigger issue with the Kasperites...This is still the Kasperite strategy."

Lifesitenews.com summarized what Forte and Kasper were using Francis's "absolute power" to control the procedures of the Synod for:

-"'Earthquake': Vatican Synod mid-term report suggests emphasizing' positive aspects of cohabitation, homosexuality...'Accept and value' homosexuality."

-The "Voice of the Family coalition charging that it amounts to the 'betrayal' of the Catholic faith." (Lifesitenews.com, October 13, 2014)

Remember what Fr. Z said of the Kasper Proposal. It is ultimately the strategy to achieve the gay agenda:

Homosexuality is "the bigger issue...This is still the Kasper strategy."

Is this Pope Francis's strategy?

Is Amoris laetitia the strategy to achieve the Kasper Proposal which is ultimately the means to impose the gay agenda?

Pope Francis strolled hand in hand with the gay rights advocate Fr. Luigi Ciotti.

Is Francis hand in hand, that is closely working together, with the Kasperites who would betray the Catholic faith?

Is Pope Francis hand in hand with those who call for the acceptance and imposing of the gay agenda "pastorally" by sex ed and other abuses on the little ones in the Church without supposedly changing doctrine?

If he is truly hand in hand with those who would cause one of these little ones to fall into sin then he needs to listen to Jesus's words:

"If you cause one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for you to have a great millstone fastened around your neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea." (Matthew 18:6)

The sex abuse experts Fitzgerald and van den Aardweg, who wrote "Is the pontificate of Francis in the clutches of the gay lobby?," in the article said:

"Public concern about the policies placing Catholic youth at risk of abuse has been further intensified by Pope Francis' restoring to priestly ministry an Italian priest Fr. Mauro Inzoli, who was laicized by Pope Benedict XVI for homosexually abusing adolescent males. After his priestly facilities were restored, he again repeated his homosexual abuse of youth, was arrested and imprisoned."

"In the United States, a member of the hierarchy who deliberately places youth at risk of abuse by a known sexual predator is expected to resign."

Alessandro Bianchi/Reuters at RT News on June 5, 2016 wrote the headline:

"Pope Francis vows to remove pedophile cover-up bishops with new church law" (https://www.rt.com/news/34565-pope-bishop-priest-abuse/)

Will Francis be true to his vow?

Will he remove the Bishop of Rome for pedophile cover-up?

International child advocate attorney Elizabeth Yore asked the Pope:

"Dear Pope Francis, who is responsible for ignoring the pleas of victims of the sexual abuse by Fr. Nicola Corradi of deaf and mute children? Who restored priestly facilities and released back into the community a formerly laicized sexual predator, Fr.Inzoli? Who raised the stature of Cardinal Danneels caught on tape covering up abuse by appointing him to the Synod on the Family and having him on the balcony at the papal election?" (Lifesitenews, January 25, 2017, "Six cases where the sexual abuse scandal touches Pope Francis")

Is Soros Through Kushner Infiltrating Trump White House?

Is President Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner in cahoots with George Soros and the Democratic party?

The Jewish Business News (JBN) on January 31 ran the headline:

"George Soros Backed Jared Kushner Venture Cadre With $250 Million"

The Real Deal said that "Soros has had a long and productive relationship with the Kushner family" according to the JBN January 31 article.

If Kushner is in cahoots with Soros, the first item on the agenda would be to oust conservatives.

The second agenda item would be to get Democrat and Soros operatives into the Trump administration.

The third agenda item would be to get Trump to break his campaign promises.

The New York Times on April 12 claimed conservative Stephen Bannon's White House "job may be in danger" because of longtime Democrat Kushner's growing control of the Trump adminstration.

Another longtime Democrat is in cahoots with Kushner to oust Bannon who is the most important conservative Republican in the Trump White House.

The Times article said longtime Democrat and former president of Goldman Sachs Gary Cohn who is Trump's chief economic adviser has "aligned himself against Mr. Bannon."

Goldman Sachs and the Democrat party are both known to have strong ties to George Soros.

Not by accident was Cohn's colleague at Goldman Sachs Steve Mnuchin confirmed as U.S.Treasury Secretary.

Mnuchin "also worked at Soros Fund" as a Soros employee. (Collective-Evolution.com, February 18)

Soros has at least two Trump officials with direct connections to his financial empire or financial dealings in the White House: Mnuchin and Kushner.

Agenda items one and two on the hypothetical Kushner/Soros agenda seem to be progressing towards accomplishment.

The third item in the agenda was breaking campaign promises.

The President's son-in-law apparently used his wife to get Trump to break his implicit campaign pledge to not attack Syria.

Britain's The Daily Telegram on April 11 reported Trump's son Eric said that Kushner's wife Ivanka convinced the President to bomb Syria.

By the bombing Trump contradicted a implicit campaign pledge he made mockingly against Hillary Clinton.

In October he said:

"Hillary wants to start a shooting war in Syria, in conflict with a nuclear-armed Russia which could lead to World War III."

Kushner's growing domination of the Trump administration was shown by the attack on Syria over the opposition of Bannon who argued for the President to keep his campaign "America First doctrine" promises according to a April 7 New York Magazine article.

On April 12, The Washington Free Beacon noted for "breaking significant news stories" by Wikipedia reported that there is a "White House civil war."

Senior staff in the White House say Kushner is acting like "a one-man show and that's creating a lot of frustration" and he has "caused confusion as to what exactly the adminstration's policy is when it comes to a range of key issues" according to the Beacon.

The article revealed senior staff said Trump's son-in-law's "aggressive action to micromanage" the White House's National Security Council is "highly unusual and damaging to the country's national security infrastructure."

The Beacon reported a White House official said Kushner is being "pegged as the 'shadow secretary of state'...but in a way he's kind of also the shadow national security adviser and secretary of defense."

Cosmopolitan on March 29 in a piece call "Who is Jared Kushner?" revealed he "'enjoys a Rasputin-like power' with Trump" and is "incredibly close with his father" so much so that "they work on the same floor 666 Fifth Ave...New York City."

Trump's son-in-law gave "large sums to mostly Democratic candidates, including Bill and Hillary Clinton" according to the March piece. It also said:

He has "an appetite for revenge... recall Gov. Christie's role in Jared's father's downfall...Jared...was the agent behind...'a Stalinesque purge' of anyone close to Christie" and Christie himself from the Trump adminstration.

In 2005, U.S. Attorney Chris Christie put Jared's father Charles Kushner in prison on 18 counts of illegal campaign contributions, tax evasion and witness tampering.

The witness tampering incident appears to show that Jared got his appetite for revenge from his father. Wikipedia reported:

"The witness-tampering charge arose from Kushner's act of retaliation against William Schulder, his sister Esther's husband, who was cooperating with federal investigators; Kushner hired a prostitute to seduce his brother-in-law, arranged to record an encounter with the two, and had the tape sent to his sister."

Pope Francis, Cuba and Leftist ALBA attempt to Prop Up Dictator Maduro

Today, Reuter reported that "Venezuela's leftist, regional allies pledged to support...President Nicolas Maduro."

Cuba and the leftist ALBA of 11 Latin American countries vowed to prop up the dictator as massive anti-Maduro demonstrations demanded democracy.

Before the Leftist countries pledged support, Pope Francis, also, attempted to prop up the dictator.

The Miami Herald on February 8, in headlines, said:

"Pope Francis, get out of Venezuela. You're only making things worse."

The Herald said that Francis's mediation effort "has legitimized that country's authoritarian ruler Nicolas Maduro, throwing him a lifeline when millions of protesters were demanding his resignation on the streets in October 2016."

Maduro officially became a dictator on December 6, 2015 when he stripped all "major powers from the National Assembly."

The Herald article ended by saying:

Pope Francis... stop being an obstacle in the restoration of democratic rule in Venezuela."

Betrayal: Trump turned into Hillary threatens World War III with Russia

In October, Trump said:

"Hillary wants to start a shooting war in Syria, in conflict with a nuclear-armed Russia which could lead to World War III."

Trump betrayed his campaign promise in bombing Syria because he heard Russian enemy Turkey's so-called unbiased report on who launched the chemical attack. (Info Wars)

The President saw "unbiased" CNN narrative pictures on TV and believed Shajul Islam who was a "primary spokesman and source" for the chemical attack narrative. Islam had been jailed in the UK on charges of aiding ISIS. (Mahound's Paradise.com)

Many experts say that it could have been ISIS that launched the chemical attack not Syrian President Assad. They say Assad would have to be suidical to do it while ISSI had nothing to lose and everything gain by the attack.

Syrian Catholic Bishop Khazen denounced the Trump bombing:

"One thing that baffles, in the face of the U.S. military attack on Syria territory, is the speed with which it was decided and carried out, without any adequate investigation into the tragic massacre with chemical weapons."(Crux)

Does Pope Francis Believe Man and Everything is Becoming Nothing?

The Vatican II school of the Nouvelle Theologie (New Theology) appears to be very influential in Pope Francis's thinking.

This theology can emphasize becoming over being.

Francis says Cardinal Kasper's theology is "profound." His theology is one extreme example of this school of thought.

Kasper appears to not believe in being, but only in becoming because of his Hegelian philosophy.

The philosopher Thomas Stark said that one of Kasper's central beliefs is "historical process," that is man's historical becoming or change.

In "German Idealism and Cardinal Kasper's Theological Project" for The Catholic World Report, Stark wrote:

"Kasper's...'spirit' that--Kasper himself says--is not identical to the third divine person, but is much more reminiscent of Hegel's absolute spirit, who in a historical process, synthesizing it's dialectical opposites in itself, develops into the whole."

Speaking of the more orthodox members of Nouvelle theologie who believe in process or becoming and the dangers of this thinking, Fr. James McLucas, the former editor of the Latin Mass magazine, in a lecture said:

"It appears to emphasis the Person of Jesus, the Person of the Holy Spirit and the Person of the Father and the personal manner of each individual's sanctification as being created in the image of God."

"But here is the key.This is all true.We certainly need this emphasis. But personhood if it is not fully subjected to being and the objective nature of God, then personhood becomes often the vehicle for the substitution of man's becoming for God's being."

If one substitutes man's becoming for God's being then man is becoming nothing. Here is why:

If one believes in being, one believes a thing is a thing.

God is the fullness or total actuality of all things or being and is their creator. Our purpose or goal in life to go to God.

If one believes only in becoming without being, one believes nothing is becoming nothing.

G. K. Chesterton put it best:

"Most thinkers on realizing the apparent mutablility of being, have really forgotten their own realization of the being and believe only in the mutablility...It is only change."

"It would be more logical to call it nothing changing into nothing than to say (on this principles) that there ever was a moment when the thing was itself. St. Thomas maintains that the ordinary thing at any moment is something, but it is not everything it could be...While they describe a change which is really a change in nothing, he describes a changelessness which includes the change of everything."

"Things change because they are not complete, but their reality can only be explained as part of something that is complete. It is God." (The Dumb Ox)

If man goes to God who is Being Itseft then he receives the gift of grace, truth and eternal life.

If man substitutes, that is exchanges or replaces, man's becoming over or against God's Being then he gets nothing and death.

Pope Francis's Porn-Related Scandals

It started with the minor scandal of Pope Francis blessing "a green parrot belonging to a rather well-known porn actor in Italy named Francesco Lombardi" on January 29, 2014 according to Relevant magazine.com.

The next scandal was the supposed "action" and Vatican "arrest" of Francis's Vatican against accused paedophile Archbishop Josef Wesolowski.

Betty Clermont of the Dailykos.com on August 13, 2015 wrote:

"Had the trial taken place, testimony would have confirmed that the pope allowed Wesolowski to remain a free man for 14 months regardless of how many times the Pope said he was taking "action" against prelates on the issue of sex abuse; and that during this time, Wesolowski acquired more than 100,000 computer files of pornography with disturbing photos of children who were likely victims of human trafficking."

Journalist Clermont on September 28, 2016 in Churchandstate.org, in a follow up article, reported:

"In August 2013, Pope Francis removed...Wesolowski for soliciting and engaging in sex with poor street boys. He did not notify the police or the public. A TV expose brought Wesolowski's crimes to the public's attention."

"The pontiff left Wesolowski a free man until September 2014 when the Italian newspaper Il Corriere Della Serra reported that Wesolowski was arrested by order of the pope because "there was a serious risk that the nuncio would be arrested on Italian territory at the request of the Dominican authorities and extradited." At the time, Wesolowski had more than 100,000 computer files of pornography...Images show youngsters...filmed naked and forced to have sexual relations with each other and with adults."

"Even under house arrest in the Vatican, Wesolowski was still able to access child porn on his internet. Wesolowski died unexpectedly before his trial began."

The next outrage was Pope Francis allowing his close collaborator Cardinal Marx and his German bishops to continue in the porn business.

Marx and the German bishop's huge porn publishing company sold pornography for over a decade. The bishops were rebuked by Pope Benedict after he was informed. After the papal rebuke, the German bishops promised the porn business would be sold according to Lifesitenews.com articles on October 31 and November 23, 2011.

The blog Vox Cantoris on September 18, 2015 wrote that Cardinal Marx and the German bishops were still in the same porn business and Francis did not "call them out." The blog asked:

"Why is Pope Francis blind to Germany's rich and porn producing bishops?"

In 2016, Francis's next x-rated outrage was appointing Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia to head the Pontifical Council for the Family. The papal appointee commissioned a pornographic mural at his former cathedral which was called "blasphemous," "disgusting," and "demonic" according to Lifesitenews.com on March 15, 2017.

Finally, the most disgraceful scandal:

Pope Francis appointed mural pornography commissioner Paglia to produce a sex education program which was released with the "apparent approval" of Francis on World Youth Day according to a March 6, 2017 article.

The article was written by psychologists Gerard van den Aardweg and Rick Fitzgerald on Lifesitenews.com.

Paglia's sex ed program used porn "like" that used by "sexual predators."

The psychologists stated that the Vatican approved and released the program called Meeting Point that "contained homoerotic and hetersexual pornography which was like that employed by adult predators of youth."

The two experts said the porn predator-like program "should be withdrawn as soon as possible by the Vatican and its website closed."

Does Pope Francis Believe in Truth or Power?

Catholic common sense, following St. Thomas Aquinas's philosophy, believes that our senses and reason are reliable.

Truth can be known.

In Edward Feser's philosophy blog a commenter named Rank Sophist argued against truth saying that Eastern philosophy believes that the senses and logic "lie."

Reality, truth and reason in Eastern Philosophy are "Maya" which means they are ultimately total illusion.

The sophist made me laugh.

Why is the dummy bothering to write (sense of sight) and agrue (logical presentation) if the guy believes the senses and reason are illusion?

The theologians that Pope Francis believes to be reliable such as the Hegelian Cardinal Kasper and the Postmodernist Michel de Certeau (Bergoglio's favorite theologian), like the sophist, don't believe in objective truth or reason.

But unlike the Rank Sophist, they can't be laughed away. They believe in power.

Eminent Austrian philosopher Thomas Stark, in an interview with the National Catholic Register, said that Kasper's theology is Hegelian idealism (senses are not reliable) which "historicizes truth" in a way that "is not coherent" and that "violates the law of non-contradiction."

"Historicized truth" means nineteenth century "truth" is different form twentieth century "truth."

"Violating the law of non-contradiction" means in Hegel's dialectic non-logic that sin can become non-sin and then evolve into something else.

As Francis's close confidant Fr. Spadaro who is called "the Pope's mouthpiece" wrote:

"2+2 in #Theology can make 5."

There is no objective truth or reason.

For Kasper there are not eternal infallible truths for all time. History or time is greater that truth. As Francis said:

"Time is greater than space."

The sin of adultery can become the non-sin of "irregular relationship" which can evolve into cohabitation/fornication which has "the grace of a real marriage" as Pope Francis said.

For St. Thomas adultery is adultery. Marriage is marriage. A hen is a hen. A egg is a egg.

Hegelians disagree with Aquinas. G.K. Chesterton explained how they think:

"The Hegelian may say that an egg is really a hen, because it's a part of an endless process of Becoming."

For Kasper, and it appears for Francis, there is no objective truth or reason.

This is bad. But, even worst is the end result of Hegelism.

In the book "The Ominous Parallels," philosopher Leonard Peikoff wrote of the ultimate end or Becoming of Hegel:

"'All the worth which the human being possesses,' writes Hegel, 'all spiritual reality, he possesses only through the state.'"

The Hegelian philosophy of history of superior states evolving from inferior states (or the bringing about of the super state from a inferior state by a process of Becoming) brought us:

The totalitarian states of the mass murdering holocausts of Hitler's National Socialist Germany (implicitly) and Marxist Russia (explicitly).

Philosopher Stephen Hicks in the book "Explaining Postmodernism" demonstrated how Marxism and Nazism are not just the direct product of Hegel's totalitarian state philosophy, but while using different names and tactics they both have the same ideology: socialism. Hicks wrote:

"Hitler, for example,  declared that 'basically National Socialism and Marxism are the same.' And Josef Goebbels, who had a Ph. D. in philosophy...argued the same point...that the Communists believed that socialism could be achieved at the international level, while the National Socialist believed that it could and should occur at the national level."

Marx and Lenin explicitly turned Hegelism into the Marxist historically evolved dialectic internationalist states.

Hitler implicitly turned the German Hegel's philosophy into the historically evolved superman racist national state.

Following in their Hegelian footsteps came the historically evolved Latin American Marxist/Socialist/Fascist tyrannies and disasters such as Peron's Argentina (and Nazi haven), Castro's Cuba and Maduro's Venezuela.

Francis supported Peron and Castro.

The Pope appears to be propping up the Maduro tyranny against the will the people of Venezuela who want freedom.

These tyrannies are the end result of Kasper's Hegelian philosophy.

In Kasper's theology, his "spirit" and "truth" are not the Holy Spirit or the infallible truths of the Catholic Church, but the historical process of Hegel's philosophy.

In an article called "German Idealism and Cardinal Kasper's Theological Project" for The Catholic World Report, the philosopher Stark said:

"Kasper's...'spirit' that--Kasper himself says--is not identical to the third divine person, but is much more reminiscent of Hegel's absolute spirit, who in a historical process, synthesizing it's dialectical opposites in itself, develops into the whole, that is the truth."

Pope Francis, four days after his election as Pope, called Kasper a "good theologian." (Wikipedia)

In 2014, Francis said:

"I read and re-read the work of Cardinal Kasper, I would like to thank him because I found profound theology."(Catholic Herald)

As Jeff Mirus said of the Pope, when Francis praised Bernard Haring who defends intrinsically evils acts, he "must be ignorant, confused, or subversive."

Either the Pope is ignorant and confused, or Francis believes in the "spirit" of Kasper.

That "spirit" is not the Holy Spirit.

That "'spirit' that-- Kasper himself says--is not identical to the third divine person."

Does Pope Francis believe in Kasper's "'spirit'...in a historical process" or the Holy Spirit who is eternally God and who insures the infallible eternal truths of the Catholic Church or the the Hegelian changeable god of historical process and the changing with time "truths" of Kasper, Hegel, Marx, Castro, Peron and Hitler?

After all, Francis in his uninspired and non-infallible writings says he believes in "initiating processes rather than possessing spaces" and "time is greater than space."
