In the film, Tommy is murdered in retaliation for having killed Billy Batts, who himself was made, and thus “untouchable.” The viewer of the film, which itself is based upon a true story, is left with the impression that, in the end, if someone crosses, the mob, the mob is going to find out, and the mob is going to get even.
It seems that Pope Francis and his merry band of degenerates in the American and European hierarchy has finally, after five years of complete mayhem, made the mob angry. First the neoconservative and now even the left wing media has turned on the Roman Pontiff.
There are two key questions here, however:
What exactly did Francis do to anger the mob?
And who, pray tell, is the mob?
The first question is more difficult to answer than the second, for there are so many bad things Pope Francis has done.
It cannot be the fact that he has protected gay priests and abuser bishops, for Pope Francis, in his infamous “Who am I to judge?” interview, which way back in 2013, even the New York Times recognized, was referring specifically to gay priests. In effect, giving a “green light” to gay priests (and bishops) around the world, the Successor to Saint Peter made it perfectly clear that he was going to look the other way in regard to clerical abuse.
In fact, in the fall of 2013, Vanity Fair ran an exposé of gay clergy called “The Vatican’s Secret Life.”
There are innumerable articles that your author could marshal to support his argument, but the point here is that the media have known about the misdeeds of the Lavender Mafia for a long time.
So why now, all of a sudden, is there a coordinated campaign to dump all of the Vatican II Church’s misdeeds out in the street?
Is it really the case that the criminal justice system in America and the world media are driven by noble motives and want to protect young men from creepy old gay pederasts?
If you believe that, dear reader, there is a bridge on the moon this author wants to sell you.
The answer for the current deliberate emptying of the skeletons out of the Church’s closet may be found in the realm of geopolitics.
As your author suggested in the previous installment of this series, there is a strong possibility that there were two reasons why the crimes of clergy of the Boston Archdiocese were aired in 2002. The first was a coordinated attack on Irish Catholic Boston by the Boston Globe and the American media in order shatter what remained of the people’s faith and ethnic identity. The second possible reason was because of John Paul II and much of the Catholic hierarchy around the world’s opposition to the Iraq War.
Again, it is important to reaffirm two important principles in our discussion.
- The Catholic Church in Europe and America is infested with degenerates and crooks.
- Journalists have an obligation before God to expose this evil.
- To criticize those who criticize Francis-Church is not to defend Francis or his goons in the U.S. Hierarchy.
The problem here is not what is being done, i.e., the exposure of pederasty, the problem is why it is being done.
Did Pope Francis, like John Paul II, oppose the efforts of the neoconservatives and the “conservative” faction of the Deep State that they represent to wage yet another war in the Middle East?
Yes, friends, Pope Francis sure did.
In 2013 after the first alleged chemical attacks in Syria by Bashar al-Assad, which were later proven false by German Intelligence and later, the UN, Pope Francis called for a day of prayer and fasting, which in addition to a near mutiny in the U.S. military over the possibility of fighting alongside Al Qaeda, stopped a U.S. invasion of Syria.
This could not have made the neoconservatives happy, for as US Army General Wesley Clark has stated, it was the prerogative of the neocons immediately after 9/11 to bulldoze a number of Middle Eastern countries.
But what about Uncle Ted McCarrick? Did he do something to trigger the ire of those planning to cripple and destroy any country that stood in the way of the neoconservative agenda?
Yes, for when he wasn’t raping and stalking seminarians, Uncle Ted found time to publish a letter in the Washington Post, applauding John Kerry and Barrack H. Obama’s 2015 Iran Deal.
This letter did not go unnoticed by the neocons, and an article was published in Bill Kristol’s failing Weekly Standard decrying Christian support for a possible peace deal with the Iranians.
The Iran Deal was especially detested by the neocons because it would grant Iran the ability to produce nuclear power and would lift some of the economic sanctions on the country. But it was especially detested because it would improve relations between Iran and the West and would thus allow Iran to grow into a power that would rival Israel and Saudi Arabia.
Cardinal McCarrick, who like most of the U.S. Catholic bishops, is very close to the Democratic Party and was clearly throwing a bone to John Kerry and Barrack Obama who had worked so hard to form the deal with Iran.
Also, for some strange reason, Cardinal McCarrick has a long history of wheeling and dealing in Iran. In fact, as our friends at the National Catholic Reporter have informed us, Cardinal McCarrick had enough free time to make several trips to Iran in the 90s and 00s.
That’s very interesting.
What could Uncle Ted have been doing in the former Persian Empire? And, more importantly, who sent the good Cardinal to the great land once conquered by Alexander of Macedonia?
Is it possible that like Cardinal Wuerl’s ties to the Obama administration and other strange overlays between the USCCB and the Democratic Party that Cardinal McCarrick was some sort of agent for American Intelligence or the State Department in Iran?
Maybe, maybe not.
The whole thing is weird nonetheless, and it further suggests that there may not be entirely noble motives behind the venting of McCarrick’s disgusting predatory activity.
The relationship between the USCCB and the Democrats as well as Pope Francis’s opposition to U.S.-Israeli hegemony over the Middle East could very well account for why the younger generation of neoconservatives led by “Little Ben” Shapiro at the Daily Wire has made it a pet project to take on exposing the scandals of a Church of which they are not part.
Like the older generation of neoconservatives before him, Shapiro ignores the devastating abuse scandals in his own religion, and, for some strange reason, is dead set on exposing the Catholic Church’s.
Something is going on here.
Is it possible that the neoconservatives and their backers are planning on forcing President Trump’s hand to strike Syria or Iran and thus need to discredit the liberal American hierarchy who would oppose these wars?
