The Vatican’s Sinister Deal With Beijing: Holy Smoke

Faithful Catholics of the Underground Church can no longer refuse on the grounds that they recognize only the Pope’s Church. Why? Because Francis himself has validated the orders of XI’s party stooges.

The Silent Pope

But the Holy Father has done more than that: he has ostentatiously failed to condemn China’s savage assaults on human rights, the worst of which is its attempt to eradicate the country’s Muslim Uyghurs ethnic minority by herding them into concentration camps and forcing Uighur women to have abortions.

As I say in this episode of Holy Smoke, the Pope’s behaviour is not just a disgrace but a mystery. The Catholic Church has gained nothing from the 2018 pact. On the contrary, it has given Beijing a handy excuse to intensify its harassment of Catholics. So why is the Vatican apparently keen to renew a deal that so badly reflects on it?

Just Follow The Money

One plausible explanation is money. Rome hasn’t got any! China enjoys nothing more than buying influence. This year, claims surfaced that the Communist Party is quietly slipping the Vatican Euro 1.6 billion a year in order to buy the Pope’s silence about the Uyghurs, the subjugation of Hong Kong and the demolition of churches.

Communists Approve Biden for President

Bob Avakian, chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA (RCPUSA) has endorsed Joe Biden for president.

Mr. Avakian, who has led the party since 1979, says he doesn’t particularly like Mr. Biden, but that electing him is necessary for “the overthrow of this system, as the fundamental solution to the continuing horrors this system causes for the masses of humanity.”

That “system” is our self-governing republic with its constitutionally guaranteed rule of law, property rights, the freedoms of religion, speech, press and assembly, and free market economics.

All of this has produced the freest, most prosperous and most generous nation in history.

It’s got to go. (Says Mr. Avakian)

In contrast to America’s leadership of the Free World, communism has killed more people and created more misery than any other ideology.

The death toll alone from communist regimes during the 20th century is at least 100 million (“The black Book of communism”)

According to historian Paul Kengor, citing other scholars, including Hoover Institution’s late Robert Conquest, the figure should be closer to 140 million dead.

The killings are not over, he notes in his new book,, ‘The Devil and Karl Marx.” They’re still murdering dissidents in China, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela and any other places unfortunate enough to come under the commissars’ boot.”

Massachusetts Bill HD 5181 Will “enshrine” Provisions, Now in Place For Mandatory Mask Wearing, “Into Law”

“The Bill (HD5181), filed by three Democrats – Reps. Jon Santiago and Mindy Domb and Sen. Harriette Chandler – aims to stave off a second surge. Several of its provisions are already required through executive orders Gov. Charlie Baker issued, but the legislation would enshrine them in law.

With no vaccine or significant preventative medicine to protect us against COVID-19 infection, and with cases surging across the country, we must ensure that proven public health policy interventions are written into law in Massachusetts,” Chanler said in a statement Tuesday.

“A deadly resurgence of COVID 19 is preventable. We have proven practices to curb the spread of viral infection: wearing face masks, ensuring widely available testing, finalizing formal workplace safety standards, and quarantining tourists coming from hotbed states. But they only work if we all participate.”

Those who violate the face covering provision under the bill could be fined up to $100.00 for a second or subsequent offense, while those who violate the mandatory self-quarantine aftravel could be fined up to $1,000.

The bill also calls for prioritizing testing for high-risk populations and for a stronger enforcement mechanism against workplace safety violations.”

Ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick Accused of Running Sex Ring from NJ Beach House

https://nypost.com/2020/07/23/ex-cardinal-ran-sex-ring-from-new-jersey-beach-house-lawsuit/ The New York Post

By: Lia Eustachewich

Disgraced ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick allegedly ran a sex ring out of his New jersey beach house – where one victim claims he was molested by him and three other priests, according to a new lawsuit.

The victim – “Doe 14”- says the alleged abuse began when he was 14 during overnight stays at McCarrick’s Sea Girt home in 1982.

“In the night, with the assistance of others, McCarrick would creep into this kid’s bed and engage in criminal sexual assault of him, whispering, “It is OK,” Jeff Anderson, the attorney for the now-53 year-old-victim, said at a virtual press conference Wednesday.

Other priests allegedly served as part of a “crew” of procurers of young boys for then-Bishop McCarrick, who “assigned sleeping arrangements, choosing his victims from the boys, seminarians and clerics present at the beach house,” the suit says.

Some of the other boys who were allegedly brought to McCarrick’s home were “assigned to different rooms and paired with adult clerics,” according to the complaint.

The victim claims he was also abused at the beach house by priests Gerald Ruane, Michael Walters and John Laferrere. The three men were among a list of 188 clergy members in New Jersey accused of sexual misconduct, N.J.com reported. Ruane is dead, while the other two men were listed as “permanently removed from ministry.”

The suit was filed Tuesday night in New Jersey superior Court in Middlesex County against the Diocese of Metuchen, the Archdiocese of Newark – where McCarrick served as bishop and archbishop respectively – and several New Jersey schools the victim attended.

The victim is described as having been raised in a devout Roman Catholic family and he was a former student at St. francis Xavier in Newark and Essex Catholic in East Orange.

He also claims he was sexually abused as an 11 year – old altar boy at St. Francis Xavier by the Rev. Anthony Nardino, who was employed at the school, and later molested by Brother Andrew Thomas Hewitt at Essex Catholic, where he was the Principal.

Hewitt died in 2002, according to an online obituary. Nardino, who has not been publicly accused before, has left the ministry, according to N.J.com

Anderson said “decades of alleged sexual abuse have been covered up by the Catholic Church.

All of it cloaked in papal power,” he said.

Sexual abuse allegations against McCarrick have been leveled before, including by James Grein, the first child he baptized. Grein said McCarrick – known as UncleTed – began molesting him at age 11.

The archdiocese of Newark didn’t immediately comment.

Its spokeswoman, Maria Margiotta, told N.J.come, “It would be inappropriate to discuss or comment on matters in litigation. The archdiocese of Newark remains fully committed to transparency and to our long-standing programs to protect the faithful and will ccontinue to work with victims, their legal representatives and law enforcement authorities in ongoing effort to resolve allegations andbring closure to victims.”

McCarrick’s lawyer didn’t immediately return a message.

Anthony Kearns, spokesperson and chancellor for the Diocese of Metuchen, said the diocese was” committed to preventing future sexual abuse.

While we have not yet received the complaint, our prayers are with all survivors of abuse, today and always,, and we stand with them in their journey toward healing and hope” he said. “With god’s grace, all survivors of abuse, particularly those wounded by members of the Church, will continue to heal and move forward.”
