  8. Theofascism….now this is a really interesting conversation.

    Matthew Fox is spot on; in fact he could have said a lot more, I’m certain; but despite being courageous and having been targeted himself, he politely demurred as discretion served his purpose better. Karol Józef Wojtyła, CIA? Exactly.

    Opus Dei is a total Spanish sewer. As for the Knights of Malta….well, virtually the entire US deep state establishment has been seduced into that arcane fabrication of elite imposture! We’re talking here about tyrannical privilege, the perversion of authority, extreme misogyny and gilded criminality.

    As for the comparison of Trump to Hitler, I’m not at all sure about that other than the way Adolf out-manipulated the Vatican hierarchy. Anyone conversant with the art of reading (natal) horoscopes, may find some cause for comparison, but they seem to be very different specimens, astrologically speaking.

    It’s a subtle business however, as the present is always unique & each twist and turn of fate affects the outcome, but I suspect that Trump would be an unlikely candidate for world dictator…unless he showed exceptional features that were particularly noteworthy.

    That said he does have a striking birth chart; but unless at 70 he has the nonagenarian stamina of a character like Robert Mugabe….ho hum. Of more concern are those behind him and who surround him, like Bannon. So long as they keep shaking things up though, calling out the corrupt media, well and good. ‘CIA’ deep state business is another matter, however.

    I respectfully disagree with Rocket about the ‘Society of Jesus.’ Jesuitical power and control remains an absolute fascistic curse in Spain where it originated. It is a vile and pestilential influence infiltrating virtually all aspects of the state and its oppressive hereditary ‘aristocratic’ ownership ~ buttressed by Knights of Malta linkage worldwide and pseudo-Masonry….including the House of Windsor through the agency of the Knights Hospitallers of St John of Jerusalem.

    As for the USA, the embedded network of Jesuit colleges are in lock-step, feeding the insidious military-intelligence octopus. The most extreme military academies like Georgetown are Jesuit run, and let us not forget that the Jesuit Order is a reactionary military order. The only set-up that comes close is the Mormon Church.

    • I’m sure I’m not the only person apprehensive about Mr S. Bannon’s ambiguous, ahistorical and arguably incoherent state of mind; his deeply misguided agendas; and insalubrious influence….

      Mint Press recently posted an article together with a segment of his video link to Benjamin Harnwell’s Dignitatis Humanae Institute meeting at the Vatican in 2014

      In response to Stephen Bannon’s alleged dogmatic assertions (according to Harnwell) about Catholic universities being “the foundational institutions of the Judeo-Christian West,” it is both disingenuous and misleading to attribute universal values to pre-Reformation institutions whose medieval origins are rooted in the transmission of Arabic texts; as one of the world’s foremost medieval scholars, Professor Charles Burnett of the Warburg Institute (University of London) School of Advanced Study explains in this enlightening short lecture, delivered last year at the Inst for Cultural Diplomacy, entitled “Arabic learning and the beginning of European Universities” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHsiuj8j_V8&t=78s

      • Hillary Belloc British Catholic said ”Europe is the faith and the faith is Europe”. Despite other influences it can be said that the Roman Catholic Church like it or not really is the respository of Western Civilization . But that must be qualified .

        in the golden age – the 12th century – there would not have been the Aristotle to Aquanias quantum leap if it was not for the Arabic scholars that that were the main translators of Aristotle to begin with . Richard Rubenstien in his book ”Aristotle’s Children ” is the best read on it . If i only had a time machine ,. …..

        My brother’s daughter went to school with Steve Bannon’s daughter . He has met Bannon . Bannon is brilliant . It will take a Pope Francis to out wit him . Welcome to this battle .

    • David , the Jesuits like any other order are a mixed bag. the fact that we have a Jesuit Pope is long overdue because the mess is so great that it takes a Jebbie to clean it up . And of course Francis has to take on the Knights of Malta . Who else can do it ?

      have you read ”Hitlers Pope ” by John Cornwall ? it is about Pius the 12th . The Catholic Centrist party was standing in the way of the Nazis. Before Pius became pope he was Pacelli and his family was party of the linage of the black noble movement in Italy that resisted the forming of the nation state by Girabaldi .

      Pacilli was the Papel Nucio of Germany and silenced the Catholic centrist party barring them from the communion table if they kept up the party .

  9. Pope Francis like any Pope is the Supreme Pontiff. The final Word. The last court of appeals . One is only a fool who expects to win fighting the Bishop of Rome.

    Now , this Pope is the first Jesuit Pope. Jesuits are the greatest educators in Western Civilization and they also dont play any games . There is right and there is wrong .

    The reason why the College of Cardinals picked Francis is because they knew he was the one with the backbone to clean up the mess in the Church . He has been firing pedophiles and corrupt money scammers since he got in .

    This Pope is no one to mess with . Anyone right or left wing or anything else that thinks they can take him on he will pulverize them .
