Systemic Conspiracy Theory Is A Valid Part Of Political Science.

“Political science is a social science discipline concerned with the study of the state, nation, government, and politics and policies of government. Aristotle defined it as the study of the state.[1] It deals extensively with the theory and practice of politics, and the analysis of political systems, political behavior, and political culture. Political scientists “see themselves engaged in revealing the relationships underlying political events and conditions, and from these revelations they attempt to construct general principles about the way the world of politics works.”[2] Political science intersects with other fields; including economics, law, sociology, history, anthropology, public administration, public policy, national politics, international relations, comparative politics, psychology, political organization, and political theory. Although it was codified in the 19th century, when all the social sciences were established, political science has ancient roots; indeed, it originated almost 2,500 years ago with the works of Plato and Aristotle.”—Britannica Concise Encyclopedia: political science

“Everywhere and at all times groups, organizations and leaders meet in closed meetings, before going ‘public’. A minority of policymakers or advocates meet, debate and outline procedures and devise tactics to secure decisions at the ‘official’ meeting. This common practice takes place when any vital decisions are to be taken whether it is at local school boards or in White House meetings. To label the account of small groups of public officials meeting and taking vital decisions in ‘closed’ public meetings (where agendas, procedures and decisions are made prior to formal ‘open’ public meetings) as ‘conspiracy theorizing’ is to deny the normal way in which politics operate. In a word, the ‘conspiracy’ labelers are either ignorant of the most elementary procedures of politics or they are conscious of their role in covering up the abuses of power of today’s state terror merchants.”~Prof. James Petras

“… those who formally rule take their signals and commands, not from the electorate as a body, but from a small group of men… the Establishment. It exists even though that existence is stoutly denied, it is one of the secrets of the American social order. A second secret is the fact that the existence of the Establishment – the ruling class – is not supposed to be discussed. A third secret is implicit in what has been said – that there is only one political party of any consequence in the United States… the “Prosperity Party.” The Republicans and the Democrats are in fact two branches of the same (secret) party.” —Professor of Political Science Carroll Quigley, GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY; author Tragedy and Hope.

“America is no longer a democracy — never mind the democratic republic envisioned by Founding Fathers. Rather, it has taken a turn{SINCE 1783} down elitist lane and become a country led by a small dominant class comprised of powerful members who exert total control over the general population — an oligarchy … .”—Washington Times

Worse there never was any such thing as a minimalist government here ever. History proves it. What was lacking before the full spectrum dominance we are observing today was the capacity of the government to force its dominance upon us all.. Hang on because it gets much worse the longer this goes on..

To Destroy The Liberals Just Dumb Them Down

“The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”—ALBERT PIKE

“They [the Jesuits] came out of the very mouth, the very heart and the very bowels of the Pope, and of the devil. . . . They [the Jesuits] will have the religion of Mohamet established to poison and plague all the East parts of the world in their souls [now also in the apostate, post-Reformation West]; and they will have the most huge, cruel, and savage armies of the Turks raised up [an Arab/Turkish Muslim world united by the Pope’s present Anglo-American-led Crusade (and for which reason the Pope disapproves of Turkey joining his European Union)], to murder and massacre millions of men in their bodies, in the West part of the world [the coming Sino- Soviet-Moslem Invasion of apostate Protestant North America].” {22) [Emphasis added]—Arthur Dent, 1798 Scottish Presbyterian Preacher The Ruin of Rome: Or, An Exposition Upon the Whole Revelation

Socially re-engineered their minds.

“Because this is the tradition of the West, the West is liberal. Most historians see liberalism as a political outlook and practice founded in the nineteenth century. But nineteenth-century liberalism was simply a temporary organizational manifestation of what has always been the underlying Western outlook. That organizational manifestation is now largely dead, killed as much by twentieth-century liberals as by conservatives or reactionaries…The liberal of about 1880 was anticlerical, antimilitarist, and antistate because these were, to his immediate experience, authoritarian forces that sought to prevent the operation of the Western way. …But by 1900 or so, these dislikes and likes became ends in themselves. The liberal was prepared to force people to associate with those they could not bear, in the name of freedom of assembly, or he was, in the name of freedom of speech, prepared to force people to listen. His anticlericalism became an effort to prevent people from getting religion, and his antimilitarism took the form of opposing funds for legitimate defense. Most amazing, his earlier opposition to the use of private economic power to restrict individual freedoms took the form of an effort to increase the authority of the state against private economic power and wealth in themselves.
Thus the liberal of 1880 and the liberal of 1940 had reversed themselves on the role and power of the state…” Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in our Time”, Carroll Quigley, Page 1231

“This radical Right fairy tale, which is now an accepted folk myth in many groups in America, pictured the recent history of the United States, in regard to domestic reform and in foreign affairs, as a well-organized plot by extreme Left-wing elements … This myth, like all fables, does in fact have a modicum of truth. There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the Radical right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other group, and frequently does so. I know of the operation of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies… but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known.” —Tragedy and Hope, A History of the World in Our Time, p. 951. 1966.)

“The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy” (Georgetown University Professor Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, 1966.)

”You can believe anything you want about Communism except that it is a conspiracy run by men from the respectable world. People will often say to an active anti-Communist: ‘I can understand your concern with Communism, but the idea that a Communist conspiracy is making great inroads in the United States is absurd. The American people are anti-Communist. They’re not about to buy Communism. It’s understandable to be concerned about Communism in Africa or Aisa or South America with their tremendous poverty, ignorance and disease. But to be concerned about Communism in the United States where the vast majority of people have no sympathy with it whatsoever is a misspent concern.’” This view is a logical argument from a person who does not know certain background information about the realities of the situation, and it is explained that while most Americans agree that Communism is not a healthy system of government, they usually cannot agree on “why” they think that way, which serves to help the continual spread of Communism.”—”None Dare Call it Conspiracy” by Gary Allen and Larry Abraham

There is only one ‘solution’ to the hued altered hu-moon human condition. Return to the Covenant known as the New Testament and retake your original identity given you by HIM that created you.. In HIS Covenant you are man and woman.. He has the solution, the only solution.. If you insist upon being the other, hued altered hu-moon then you may or may never learn that there is no ‘solution’ to the human condition. There are no political solutions.. As stated in the Bible No philosophical solutions.. The Adversaries many reversed counter New Testament ideas, numerous concepts of rebellion social engineering is all dead ends.. He has perverted the original idea, LAW, and he has perverted all of the property of the LAW GIVER.. To reverse an original idea is not an idea. It is simply rebellion.  If the Adversary of originality hates all of creation by The One TRUE GOD so much why not go elsewhere and create his own originality? Because the adversary can’t do it.. He is powerless.  He cannot make his own dirt. He cannot put life into anything. All he has done is take the use manual of this earth for mankind and use it to ruin everything while distracting every man and woman from reality.

Vatican Concordats

Vatican Concordats

Notice that the Concordat is with Britain. None With the United States, Or the United States of America.. That is because they own own Britain and Britain owns the United States and the United States of America.. Two separate companies.. Corporations.. They own the Hudson Bay Company, The British Eat Indies Company. And several others.. Like George Washington’s Virginia Land Company, and his Vandalia Company..Massachusetts Bay Company Ohio Company of Virginia Mississippi Company Potomac Company Dutch East India Company Virginia Company.. They own a lot of companies. The United Nations Company..

 

These church-state accords often give the Catholic Church massive state subsidies and other privileges. They can also permit Church employees to be hounded about their private lives. Yet as “international treaties”, concordats bypass the democratic process, making parliaments powerless to modify, let alone revoke them. They are traditionally concluded under various names with the Vatican, but can also be made with the Order of Malta.

“International treaties”

International law has been called “war by other means”. [1] Among the most effective of these “other means” are the papal documents called concordats. A concordat is an agreement between the Vatican and a foreign state. Since the Vatican claims to be a country [2], these accords are supposed to be as binding as international treaties ? yet also to exist on a higher plane and possess a “spiritual” dimension: “A concordat refers to a cordial agreement, a union of wills, the successful meeting of hearts and minds in Christian harmony.” [3] Concordats are thus treaties but, in view of the strategems used to get concordats past democratic legislatures, it could be argued that in some respects they resemble the treaties of the colonial era whose “primary aim was less the creation of legally binding commitments and more the economic and political infiltration”. [4]  The Roman Catholic Church tries to make concordats with any state wherever and whenever this becomes politically possible. This strategy has proven so successful that now other powerful churches (even ones that don’t claim to be countries) are clamouring for equivalent “church-state treaties”. These include the Lutheran Church in Germany and the Orthodox Church in Belarus, Armenia and Georgia. In fact, if a future concordat is signed between the Vatican and the Czech Republic, even the Seventh Day Adventists have said that they want one, too. [5] As a recent study by a Catholic theologian concludes, “the Catholic Church has opened the way for all religious communities to enjoy the same rights. [6] By sharing the spoils, this delivers a fundamental blow to separation of church and state.

Set in stone

Concordats differ in detail from state to state, as they codify the already existing church privileges ? and try to slip in as many more as the local political climate will allow. This is erosion of church-state separation is dangerous because it is a one-way street. For in a democratic country there is always the possibility of any privilege being revoked if circumstances change. [7]

But the main point of a concordat is to remove Church privileges from democratic control. It does this by means of a contract which cannot be altered except by mutual consent. All other laws are under parliamentary control and can be amended by it. However in a concordat, because one of the parties is the Church, it is hardly going to be willing to give up any of its privileges. A cardinal frankly admits that the advantage of concordats resides precisely in this independence from democratic control:

[Other agreements] are subject to local law and therefore will always be fragile, insofar as they are dependent upon the hazards posed by the political regimes or parliamentary majorities of the future. [8]

By the back door
Originally concordats were agreements between two monarchs: the pope who ruled the Papal States and the ruler of the other country. John Paul II was able to make such an agreement with King Hassan II of Morocco in 1983-1984. In such cases there is no parliament to complicate matters. Today, however, with both absolute monarchs and dictators hard to come by, concluding a concordat is not so easy: the pope is the only remaining absolute ruler in Europe. This has obliged the Vatican to develop many ways of getting concordats approved by sceptical parliamentarians.
Sometimes the text of the concordat may be kept secret until it has been signed which prevents any discussion of its terms by parliament or the public. By the time the legislators and the public find out what the concordat says, it can no longer be altered, only approved or rejected as a whole. And sometimes parliament is even expected to vote on this complex ? and permanent ? legal document too quickly for any real scrutiny. If that doesn’t work a concordat may sit unratified for years until some opportunity presents itself to get it cast in stone. In addition to the hundreds are already in force worldwide, others, like the Slovak “Conscience Concordat”, are drawn up and waiting for the right political climate to be ratified. For more on this, see Sixteen tricks to get a concordat through.
Tithes without worshippers
By hook or by crook the Church tries to get itself concordats. This convenient document allows the Church to extend its privileges, including massive state subsidies, even as, in some of the wealthier countries, its membership is decreasing ? and it also locks these payments in. This is why the Slovakian government wants to introduce a “church tax” (a fixed percentage of the income tax paid by church members), whereas the Church wants to maintain the status quo, (an annual donation according to present needs). [9] If the Church succeeds in getting “present need” funding enshrined in the upcoming concordat on finances, there will be no realistic possibility of reducing the state contribution ? ever.
Conclusion

A concordat does three things.
  • First, it installs a ratchet. The concordat itself cements previously-granted privileges and adds new ones. And the ratchet effect doesn’t end there, for a “general concordat” may be used to sets up the framework for more detailed ones to come. The general concordat acts as the thin edge of the wedge: its terms are vague enough to make it easy to get through parliament [10], but if the parliamentarians later balk at the more detailed concordats, they are told that they have already agreed to them in principle. And if the general concordat has included an “aim” to conclude them within a certain time, this can be used to apply more pressure, by presenting it to the media as a “promise”. [10] A framework concordat is like a Russian doll containing more.
  • Second, and even more ominously, because a concordat claims the status of international law, it prevents Church privileges, including massive state subsidies, from ever again being brought under democratic control.
  • And third, a concordat stipulates that “Church institutions” are governed by Canon Law (the law of the Catholic Church). However, since the Church is permitted to run various social services ? with state support, of course ? the laws which govern these Church institutions also affect those who work and those who are served by them. This legal manoeuvre means that a concordat can set up a theological fiefdom where certain Human Rights do not apply ? and where they can never be reintroduced without the consent of the Church.
By means of concordats Vatican diplomats and lawyers are mounting an attack on many of the freedoms that we have won since then ? rights that we had come to think were unassailable. The Vatican’s concordats pose an increasing threat to both democracy and Human Rights.

The concordat is supposed to pass its provisions spiritually, requires no diplomatic “handling,” and its conclusion is avoided by the Holy See if it foresees complications in the ratification process from the other side. It is a euphemism through which papal treaty practice is rendered sui generis, supposed always to operate in concord, thus rhetorically separating itself from the worldly bargaining and crude pursuit of national interest associated with conventional treaty-making.

Concordats promote authoritarianism

Authoritarianism concentrates power in one man or group.  This pattern of subordination tends to replicate itself to create a hierarchy. Blind obedience comes to be seen as the necessary glue for keeping society together, and it is applauded by the mini-dictators throughout such a society. However, as recent research shows, a lack of power is deeply damaging to the individual.

A concordat helps to promote authoritarian structures throughout society. It fosters a system of state-funded religious schools which instil a culture of obedience. It also isolates children from contact with non-Catholics, so that their own religious microcosm is all they know. It mandates state-funded, Church-run hospitals which deny women reproductive choice and burden them with unplanned children which locks them into dependence. It sets up a network of state-funded “faith-based social services” which force an anxious appearance of piety on employees, job-seekers and even their families. And some concordats deny those married in a Catholic church the chance to escape from abuse and have a new life by getting a divorce. Respect for authority has long been instilled by the Church in Latin America and this is the society from which political scientist Howard J. Wiarda draws his examples.

First, authoritarianism is a form of dictatorship, of absolutism, of tyranny. It implies concentrated power in the hands of one man, a clique, an elite group, military officers, or a party, as distinct from the dispersed, competitive, pluralistic power found in a democracy.

Second, authoritarianism, when present, is not usually just limited to the top of the political pyramid but is often apparent throughout society, at local, social and familial, and regional levels as well as national ones. Husbands may exercise authoritarian control over their wives, fathers over their children, landowners over peasants, elites over masses, and local godfathers, caudillos (men on horseback), or mayors over their people. […]
Authoritarianism at the top usually reflects a society that is also authoritarian at other and lower levels. I recall how one politician in the Dominican Republic put it during a campaign speech while waving a cattle prod in the air: “I need authority for my cattle and I will need authority for my people!” The audience of peasants and cane cutters cheered. In other words, authoritarianism is often society-wide and a cultural phenomenon, not just limited to one man, the dictator, or the political structure. [1]

In fact, in an authoritarian society, the nature of democracy can be completely misunderstood:

The simple principle that democracy, besides power of majority, means protection of rights of minority, is completely alien […]. Politicians elected by majority who then deprive minority of access to media sincerely think that they are democrats; moreover, their electorate is in complete agreement with them. [2]

Authoritarianism empowers a few — once they have finally managed to scramble to the top of the ladder — but it makes most people powerless. And new research shows how damaging this can be: it can cloud their minds in ways that keep them from getting ahead. A lack of power impairs people’s ability to keep track of new information, to figure out what’s relevant, and to successfully plan ahead to achieve their goals. This is how hierarchies perpetuate themselves. The powerless passively accept their lot. They “are guided by situational constraints and circumstances, rather than by their own goals and values, and view themselves as the means for other people’s goals”. [3]

Pope’s claim to temporal power based on 8th-c forgery

This “most remarkable of forgeries for its practical effect on world-history” was used to justify the pope owning his own kingdom. In fact, this forged “Donation of Constantine” even let the pope claim to be the overlord of emperors and kings, the supreme ruler in former Western Roman Empire. The book that finally exposed the document as fraudulent was banned by the Vatican.

It’s been called the “most remarkable of forgeries for its practical effect on world-history” [1] and it was used to justify the pope owning his own kingdom, the predecessor of the State of the Vatican City. This document was called the “Donation of Constantine” because it purported to be a grant by Emperor Constantine in favour of Pope Sylvester I. Actually, there is no evidence that Constantine, the first Christian emperor, ever attended a church service and, in fact, he was baptised only on his deathbed in 337. It has been claimed that, like Napoleon, Constantine saw Christianity as a tool to unify his empire and let him exercise social control through the bishops. [2] However, one thing is certain: he did not follow the script of the most famous forgery in history”, the Donation of Constantine, as it was written more than 300 years after his death. [3]
This document announces that the Emperor is withdrawing to a new capital at Constantinople in order to give the pope “the city of Rome and all the provinces, districts and cities of Italy or of the western regions”. Constantine also purportedly decrees that the papal reign in Italy and the Western Roman Empire was to continue “until the end of the world”.
This forgery was used to justify the pope’s direct rule over much of Italy for more than 1000 years as king of the Papal States, the forerunner of his present State of the Vatican City.

This document also grants the pope jurisdiction even over territories that he did not rule directly. Constantine supposedly concedes to the pope power over kings and emperors or, as he puts it, “a supremacy greater than the earthly clemency of our imperial serenity”. This enabled the pope to claim temporal authority over European kings. In accordance with this doctrine of papal supremacy, Gregory VII tried to get William the Conqueror to swear fealty to him and hand over England .[4]  By the High Middle Ages some had begun to question the authenticity of the Donation of Constantine, but it was dangerous to express this openly. In 1229-1230 a couple of doubters were burned alive at Strasbourg. [5] It wasn’t until 1517 that this forgery was publicly proven to be a fake, (the same year that Martin Luther launched his own protest against papal power). The brilliant humanist Lorenzo Valla (who had the protection of a royal patron) argued that the document’s barbarous Latin meant that it could not possibly date from the time of Constantine. The Vatican responded by placing Vallo’s work on the Index of forbidden books. [6]
Of course, discrediting the basis for the pope’s temporal power was one thing, but ending it was another. Exposing the Donation of Constantine as a fake did nothing to help those living in his theocracy in the Papal States. [7] They were only freed by force of arms. In 1870 Pius IX refused to negotiate a peaceful surrender, and Italian troops were obliged to breach the walls.
In terms that echo the claims of the Donation of Constantine, Pius IX rejected the legitimacy of  his overthrow in the name of democracy. He had long maintained that the Church was a perfect society, entitled by Christ to exercise temporal power and to use force while doing so. [8] Even after he was deposed, Pius IX continued to insist that he was still King of Rome: “This corner of the earth is mine; I received it from Christ.” [9]
Theologian and Cardinal Yves Congar felt that this was a missed opportunity for Pius IX to reconcile himself with his loss of power and return the Church to its true role of preaching: “When the events of the time invited him to abandon the terrible lie of the Donation of Constantine… he did not respond…but plunged the Church into demands proper to a temporal power.” [10]

For 58 years after the loss of the papal kingdom, successive popes refused to leave their enclave, claiming pathetically to be “prisoners of the Vatican”. The papal boycott only ended when the dictator Mussolini signed the Lateran Pacts [11] which once again gave the pope an autonomous state. The pope’s original kingdom, based on a forged grant by the emperor Constantine, was replaced by a microstate based on a real grant by the dictator Mussolini. Superficially the restored kingdom is only a shadow of the Papal States that stretched all the way across central Italy. The present Vatican City State is the smallest microstate in the world and it has no lay inhabitants. Even so, as “Sovereign of the State of the Vatican City” [12] the pope still exercises temporal power indirectly. He adroitly uses his revived “state” to lobby in international bodies and to exert pressure through international “treaties”. [13] He no longer wields temporal power directly as he once did over his subjects in the Papal States, yet still manages to do so indirectly over millions of people worldwide. Though now historically discredited, the Donation of Constantine helped to lay the groundwork for the temporal power of the pope today.

The left gets a modus vivendi, the right a concordat

The Vatican makes concordats with rightwing governments, whether absolute monarchies or fascist dictatorships. However, it snubs equally authoritarian governments on the left. It only makes quiet working arrangements with communist countries, since their regimes compete with the Church ideologically, rather than complementing it.
Ordination of priests at St. Peter’s in Rome. Dictators
also want to keep people humble and rightwing ones have
traditionally allied themselves with the Church through concordats.

A dissident 17th-century French priest describes the pact between the Church and the King of France – but he could just as well have been talking about other authoritarian rulers like the Emperor Napoléon or the Nazi puppet, Marshal Pétain:

Religion supports political power […] and the government, in return, protects religion.[…] On the one side, the priests command on pain of curses and eternal damnation obedience to the magistrates, princes and kings, as established by God to govern the rest, and on the other side, the princes ensure that the priests are respected and granted good appointments and good revenues…. [1]

A pact with an authoritarian is ruler can be useful for getting concordats, as an eminent Vatican lawyer admits:

The Apostolic See, to avoid the risk of open mockery, usually enters into solemn undertakings only where a civil government is under no obligation to seek the consent of a representative body, or where there can be no reasonable doubt that such consent will be granted. [2]

This was the inside view from a famed canonist at the Gregorian University in Rome who became superior general of the Jesuits and a trusted adviser to Pope Pius X.
It’s much easier to sign a concordat with a dictator — then  there’s no worry that a democratic legislature might refuse to ratify it. This is why concordats are so often made with strongmen. Here on Concordat Watch you can find ones concluded with despots, large and small: Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, Duvalier, TrujilloDollfuss, the Ivorian President-for-Life Houphouët-Boigny, the Argentine Generals Aramburu and Onganía and the Peruvian military junta under General Bermúdez two days before he had to step down. (The first five gentlemen even made it into the Killers of the 20th Century.)
These rightwing dictators generally got on well with the Vatican, despite occasional theoretical differences. For instance, their problem with the Jews: the Church was anti-Jewish, blaming the Jews for communism, democracy and “killing Christ”, whilst the Nazis were anti-Semitic, blaming them for ancestry that wasn’t German. When it came to the crunch, this subtle distinction about exactly what they should be accused of didn’t help most Jews very much. [3] In practice, it just meant that a few of the Jews who had converted to Catholicism were saved through Church intervention, while the rest were left to their fate under Hitler.
 This marriage between fascism and religions has been called clero-fascism or clerical fascism. More detail can be found at the site of the Clero-Fascist Studies Project.

While John Paul II draped his interventions in Poland and Eastern Europe in the garb of “liberty” and “independence,” the reactionary essence of his political orientation was revealed openly in South America. There he sided with the ruling elites and disciplined so-called “liberation theologians” who had lined up with the oppressed in their struggles against right-wing military dictatorships. [4]

However, any alliance with the Vatican remains a marriage of convenience, one which is promptly annulled when support for the dictator threatens to become a liability. Thus the standard sequence is for the Vatican to conclude a concordat with a dictator who is anxious for the legitimacy conferred by a concordat with the Holy See. Yet when his hold on power slips and it’s clear he’s soon going to be to be replaced by popular demand, the Church turns on him. To get more leverage with the impending new government and be seen as supporting the oppressed, the Church switches sides. It suddenly remembers the dictaor’s atrocities and issues grave warnings from pulpits across the land. This happened in their declining days to Spain’s Franco, Haiti’s Duvalier, the Dominican Republic’s Trujillo, Argentina’s Juan Peron, Venezuela’s Marcos Perez Jimenez and Colombia’s Gustavo Rojas Pinilla. [5] Of course, when the Vatican turns on its concordat partners it does not renounce the concordats, as well. Long after the rightwing dictators have been deposed, these remain.
 With leftwing dictatorships the relationship was less cosy. The Church opposed Socialism and Communism from very early on, long before the Soviets came to power and began abusing people. [6] This fact suggests that the Church objected to Marxism, not because it was against oppression, but because it wanted to check any competing ideology, especially one which was hostile to religion.
However, the Vatican still wanted to find out what was going on and exercise what influence it could and thus it arranged a modus vivendi — a working agreement — with the various Communist regimes of Eastern Europe. This was a kind of diplomatic note lacking the full force of an international treaty, (which is what a concordat purports to be). The modus vivendi acted to secure whatever could be got, it kept the lines of communication open and yet it withheld the diplomatic recognition conferred by a concordat. The modus vivendi was intended as a stopgap until a leftwing regime collapsed. Then the Vatican could offer a new and more compliant successor the prospect of international recognition and the stabilising support of the Church — at a price — the price of a concordat.

Notes
Note on the picture of boots: These seem a better symbol of modern Fascism than the traditional “fasces“. Springer boots, originally for paratroopers, have thick soles to absorb the shock of landing. Neo-Nazis use them to absorb the shock to their feet of treading on their victims.

In the course of his first visit to Nicaragua in 1983, John Paul II publicly reprimanded the priest Ernesto Cardenal who, together with two other priests, held ministerial posts in the Sandinista government. In 1995, during another visit to Nicaragua, the pope condemned the Iglesia Popular (People’s Church) and what he called the mistaken ecumenism “of Christians engaged in the revolutionary process.” At the same time, he elevated the right-wing archbishop and bitter opponent of the Sandinistas, Miguel Obando y Bravo, to the post of cardinal.
Numerous liberation theologians were sacked from their posts by John Paul II and replaced by conservative bishops or priests. Writes François Houtard in Le Monde Diplomatique: “Grass roots church groups which had come into being in South America characterised by autonomy and the protection of the interests of the poor were isolated and even destroyed in some cases. Priests who sided with them were removed and forbidden access to community facilities, and occasionally new groups were set up under the same name…”
At the same time, supporters of right-wing dictatorships ascended to the highest offices of the Church. The papal nuncio to the Argentine military dictatorship, Pio Laghi, and the nuncio to the Chilean military dictatorship, Angelo Sodano, are today both cardinals.
Sodano had praised Pinochet’s despotic and murderous rule in Chile with the words: “Masterpieces can also have small errors. I would advise you not to dwell on the errors of the painting, but concentrate on the marvellous general impression.” When an arrest warrant for Pinochet was issued in 1998 while the former dictator was in London, the pope himself publicly supported the Chilean fascist general.

Perspectives: The Second Coming of papal politics

Christoph Prantner of Der Standard offers this view from Austria, which has long experience of Church involvement in politics. The debate about Islam, he says, is also reviving political Catholicism. In Madrid, Paris and Rome the boundaries between church and state are becoming blurred, raising the danger of a return to theological politics.
Christoph Prantner
Perspektiven: Die Wiederkunft der Pfaffenpolitik
Der Standard  (Austria), 22 January 2008

It’s beginning to look as if we’ve gone back to the time of the political Reconquista: In Spain, France and Italy political Catholicism is being revived. Clerics are intervening unabashed in politics, politicians are cosying up to the True Faith – and doing it as a matter of course, in a way not seen for a long time in secular Europe. At the beginning of 2007, for instance, the bishops tangled with the ruling Socialists over their family politics. The Spanish Church showed ill-concealed sympathy with the opposition Partido Popular a few weeks before the parliamentary elections in March 2007. Cardinal Antonio Canizares, vice president of the Spanish Bishops Conference even accused the government of Zapatero in front of 160,000 archconservative demonstrators of “threatening democracy with their radical secularism”. [1]
Clouds of incense
Meanwhile on a visit to pope Benedict XVI and also in his New Year’s address Nicholas Sarkozy was so caught up in religious rapture that some French citizens began to fear that under their quasi-born-again President the secular state could disappear in a cloud of incense. He had said that only believers can have hope. And that every civilisation is based on something religious and that God is a bulwark against – of all things – arrogance and madness.
And finally, in Rome the Church is making it clear that nothing can be done against its will. When it comes down to it, the political agents of the Vatican don’t hesitate for a moment to have the government of the liberal Catholic stalwart Romano Prodi overturned. At one time ex-EU Minister Rocco Buttiglione boasted about having direct access to Carol Wojtyla at all times. Today ex-Justice Minister Clement Mastella bows eagerly before the papal throne.
“Mariazell Manifesto”
It was not until 1952, through the Mariazell Manifesto, that the Catholic Church [gave up its claim to being the national church and] brought to an end the ill-fated political Catholicism (For example, Prelate Ignaz Seipel as Chancellor.) [This was the “Roman Catholic priest, twice chancellor of Austria (1922–24 and 1926–29), whose use of the Fascist paramilitary Heimwehr in his struggle against Austria’s Social Democrats led to a strengthening of Fascism in his country.”] [2]
In the worldwide Catholic Church there is nothing else that explicit. It’s true that the Viennese theologian Paul Zulehner refers to the Second Vatican Council, according to which the Church is to be “political, but not politicised in the sense of party politics”. However, others interpret this as mainly an attempt on the part of John XXIII to limit the damage from the close relationship to the Nazis cultivated by his predecessor Pius XII.
Why is this new offensive, this “Second Coming” of papal politics, coming just now? One factor is the debate about Islam in the last few years. Those who want to argue against terrorists inspired by Islam — like President Nicholas Sarkozy in his most recent speeches — fall back, without thinking, on “Christian values”. That, of course, encourages the churchmen. […]
Whenever politics becomes a matter of religion — as it is with the Islamicists — the field of action is dramatically narrowed. This is because religious demands are non-negotiable.
This may not worry people with a terrorist’s view of politics. It should, however, concern the Catholic Church which is still committed to the rationalist tradition of Europe. Luckily, in addition to this there are still enlightened citizens — and not only in Spain, France and Italy — who after centuries under the power of the Church no longer wish to rely on the blessings of its wisdom.

Notes

Campaign underway to turn Sierra National Forest into national monument

Deja Vu, all over again.

“A campaign is underway to change the 1.3 million-acre Sierra National Forest to Sierra National Monument between Yosemite and Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.

Proponents say the change would bolster outdoor recreation and tourism, while better preserving the landscape. They want to see the elimination of commercial logging and mining, and the phasing out of grazing.”<<<Read More>>>

If this continues, how many years before idiots will be asking what they are supposed to wipe their rear ends with and why the only food they can get comes from China and makes them sick.

Animal Perversion Prevalent Everywhere

I know I anger a lot of people when I expose their perversion toward animals. It’s one thing to have a pet, and yet it’s quite another when animal worship rises to a level of placing the welfare of ANY animal above, or equal to, that of man. Here’s two more examples.

Some time ago, New Jersey reported on a black bear that, due to some kind of malformation, has adjusted and has learned to walk on his rear legs. The bear has been nicknamed, Pedals. As would probably be expected, people got a kick out of seeing the bear getting about walking upright.

However, this seemingly has set off a firestorm from the animal perverts, demanding the bear be moved to a “wildlife sanctuary” and cared for – likening the event to that of a person in a wheelchair needing special attention. In addition, a petition has been circulated, supposedly collecting over 300,000 signatures to move the bear to a sanctuary “before it gets hurt” by a “human with a gun.”

Wildlife officials have repeatedly attempted to tell the brain deficient public that the bear is healthy and has adjusted to his handicap fine. But that never satisfies an animal pervert. The perverts have raised $25,000 for a “new enclosure” insisting the bear be institutionalized.

These kinds of people are quick to raise money for something this perverse and are first in line to throw the humans out, stealing their livelihoods and running them off their own property.

*****

Second is a story so bizarre, it can’t be made up. A woman driver in the Houston, Texas area, stopped her car in the middle of the multi-lane freeway, blocking traffic, endangering the lives of hundreds of other people, say nothing about risking her own life. She left her car, ended up crossing the center Jersey barrier, walking out into speeding traffic, during a busy rush time, in order to rescue a cat. She zigged and zagged in and out of traffic, not concerned if the traffic would run her over. Only intent on saving the cat.

Witnesses said the woman was completely oblivious to her surroundings and the danger and peril she was putting other people in. Her disturbed mind was intent on saving a damned cat while she and many others could have been killed or injured. But that would not have mattered to an animal pervert. If hundreds of people had died, saving the cat would have been worth.

Too many humans. Never enough animals.

SICK!

A Brief Thought On Stupidity

If everyone you’re against is very stupid, unscientific and as hateful as you claim they are how can you possibly even think you’re going to communicate anything to them that they will comprehend? You yourself would have to be relatively intelligent to realize these allegedly stupid unscientific and hateful people don’t realize they’re stupid people. So are you stupid or something because you should know you cannot fix stupid. What if you’re stupid too? If you’re stupid how can you possibly realize your own stupidity? Because again, you’d have to be relatively intelligent to know how stupid you are. And relatively stupid to think you can communicate with stupid people. You know whats really stupid? Everyone on these web site comment boxes yelling at one another about how wrong they are. And nobody likes to be told they’re wrong, including YOU, and all of these other stupid people. So again, are you sure you’re not stupid? Are you sure you’re immune to being deceived tricked delusional and under strong delusion? Are you sure?

There are liars all around us, except on your side of these issues. Are you sure? There are deceivers yelling from the 501c3 church pulpits. And there are deceivers yelling from the pulpits of scientism.. Are you sure you’re immune to all of the deceptions? If you cannot find your way out of that chaos then you really are stupid. Because that world system out there with its countless set of false of delusions is obvious. Those U.S. courts out there have a saying, in their records, that if you cannot represent yourself in their court system, speak their terminology at various levels of expert communication, then you need a representative to speak for you because you are illiterate. To be terms illiterate in the world of terms literacy is ignorant. They term it another way, especially when you use words to argue against their terms. They call that insanity.

Now on another note if all of your politicians who are lawyers are speaking in terms how is possible you are qualified to make a determination as to which one is the best  for us all? How can you possibly make a determination for yourself if they are being honest or dishonest. Shouldn’t the fact that they are  using terms to speak to people that have various levels of word comprehension raise your eyebrows a tad? Just the fact that they can do  this to you shows, and in their minds justifies that you’re incompetent thus they must make all of the decisions for all of you. If that works for you well I’m sorry but I think you’re stupid. Who in their right mind would keep falling for this trick over and over repeatedly for an entire lifetime? Only stupid people. or maybe the courts are right, insane people. Are you stuck within their systematized delusion? If so, they created it thus they also created your stupidity, your insanity. The best part of all of this is they tell you repeatedly all over the place what they’re doing because they’re mocking your stupidity and insanity. Now I’m going to cut you some slack and explain something to you, you’re not really stupid or insane, you’re simply ignorant of how you’re being abused. By them.. Not by me, by them.. But hey, they love the Stockholm Syndrome because that works for them as well. It should be emphasized that school books in particular are PROPAGANDA from inception to publishing and distribution. Spook business from top to bottom. Yeah they nailed us with their history tall tales too..

Insanity is repeating the same mistakes over and over again and expecting different results.

A “systematized delusion” is one based on a false premise, pursued by a logical process of reasoning to an insane conclusion ; there being one central delusion, around which other aberrations of the mind converge. Taylor v. McClintock, 112 S.W. 405, 412, 87 Ark. 243.

If you must be “re-presented” you must be insane since you can only be represented as such. Because, who in their RIGHT MIND would remain subject to a system of abuse and torture? Who would NOT be competent to administer their own affairs? Only the insane and incompetent.

If the entrenched power interests behind the its free public schools welfare “education” system did not want the “education” to be so bad, it would not be. Their is your insanity, the dumbing down of society for allegedly better management of society. Mental hospitals are for the ones that drool, crap their shorts and try to harm themselves or others..The first thing addressed in the US Code is the definition of insane people, otherwise known as Wards of the Court or Wards of the State. These are persons of unsound mind or minors who may not be able to speak for themselves. Thus, they need representation, be it a parent or guardian and in cases where the parents competence may be uncertain, representation can be in the form of a State appointed Attorney. Or in the case of government over a non-self-governing people, a Representative may be elected by those non-self-governing people to represent them. Insane people according to the U.S. Code, are also, legal terms illiterate thus they require someone who is legal terms literate at a high level to speak for them. Your society itself is a mental hospital.

If they dumbed down everyone that means everybody.. If only your “leaders” are terms literate it stands to reason that they would protect themselves by keeping societies they control – manage terms illiterate..

Those people doing this to anyone who they can attract dislike them. They hate us. I’ve been around some of them and they despise us. They mock you because you are not in on the scam they are victimizing you with. That and they feed off of their false sense of superiority and power over their victims. Plus they have a self preservation thing going on, they fear you in mass catching on to their game. Additionally the economy we all use was created and is managed by them. It’ll do whatever they want it t o do. And its a great distraction. Economies can be used as weapons.. YOU dear reader figure that out.

The object of the game is to discover the object of…. The Game being played all around us..

Deception Management.

Why Your Belief of Entitlement to Attack my Heritage?

upsidebackwards2

Over the past several weeks, I have read tons of information about Michael Bloomberg and his upcoming attempt to disarm Maine citizens. Of course Bloomberg, who surely fits the description of being a fascist, forcing others to comply with and adhere to his “authoritarian, or intolerant views or practice.” We’ve seen this in play for a long time now, especially when he was mayor of Rome of the West, New York City, telling people what they could and couldn’t eat, etc.

But it surely doesn’t stop with Michael Bloomberg. This orchestrated effort to change everything that was good to bad, and bad to good, began a long time ago. It is now only at a point where it is so blatant and common that we see it everyday. Along with this, the sheep are accustomed to being led to the slaughter and they like it.

I grew up in Maine and lived there full time for nearly 50 years. I now divide my time between Maine and Florida. During the 50 years in Maine, I can never recall a time when I or the people that I knew, spent any time trying to change people from living the lifestyle they chose or what was an embedded part of their heritage.

Yes, we used to laugh and make lots of jokes about “flatlanders” from “away” but seldom, if ever, did the Maine residents try to stop these people from moving to the Pine Tree State or to force them to change their lifestyle and adopt theirs. I often marveled at those “from away” saying they hated where they came from and loved Maine, and yet, upon arrival, worked diligently to make their new community just like where they came from and hated. It made little sense.

Yesterday, in my pile of reading material, I recall reading one author as saying (and I’m paraphrasing) that Michael Bloomberg’s ballot initiative, and what it will accomplish, is a direct attack on the deeply seeded Maine traditional heritage of gun ownership and the freedoms enjoyed by those people – which is a true statement in my opinion.

Why then, during my first 50 years in Maine, I never once attacked another person for their choice of lifestyle, expecting only to be treated the same, and today, people like me and millions of others, are being steamrolled by disgusting fascists like Michael Bloomberg? It is one of the serious downfalls of what Americans ignorantly love to lay claim to – Democracy. As is often described, democracy is two wolves and a lamb discussing what’s for lunch.

Democracy is mostly rotten to the core. It is not democracy. It is a rigged system in which money and corruption controls everything, including the people. That control has created a society so blinded that they willing go about promoting their own destruction. They have been brainwashed to believe they are entitled to attack and destroy anyone and anything that does not fall in line with THEIR lifestyle, bred into them from birth by leftist progressives.

I would suppose that I, and others like me, have to accept a certain degree of responsibility for what has happened. As I have lived my life, not sticking my nose into other people’s business, the mistake I made was to assume that others were raised the same way. But now it’s too late. We are embroiled in a life of progressivism, where everything is upside-down and backwards, where everything once good is bad and the bad things have become good.

It has been said that success breeds complacency, which in turn breeds failure. I think there’s more to it than that.

However;

DON’T GO LOOK!
