I am having to pre-schedule a rather significant segment of blogs, so by the time this one appears, it may already have been overtaken by events.

Last month, the world was stunned by the announcement of Benedict XVI (Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger) that he was stepping down as pope. This provoked a frenzy of speculation, as most people thought that there was something lurking behind the scenes motivating - or compelling - his decision. Indeed, I indulged in speculation on this website.

The speculations ranged the whole spectrum, from continuing criminality and "murkiness" in the Vatican Bank, to Ratzinger's alleged role in suppressing the church's sex scandal, to blackmail on one or both counts, and even to speculations that the shadowy Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM) might have "persuaded" Benedict to step down. I pointed out that Ratzinger was one of many conciliar periti at the Vatican II who led the campaign for reform, a reform that led, not to a vernacular translation of the old mass, but to a wholly new, ugly, and pedestrian ritual. Vatican Two Burlap became the norm for some of the most garishly ugly church vestments in history. Many call it contemporary. Indeed. It's the liturgical version of Jackson Pollock or Pablo Picasso, a cubist cacaphony of "points of view" all dribbled together in one supreme act of liturgical ugliness. In the wake of The Big Change, a book - The Rhine Flows into the Tiber - detailed how a group of liberally minded clergy and bishops, the "Rhine Group," literally hijacked the council, diverted it from the original schemata, and substituted its own agendas. Reform quickly approached the hue of revolution, and some - I among them - would argue that it had become a revolution.

Ratzinger was of this group.

In my musings about the papal resignation, I also mentioned the so-called prophesies of Malachy, and how there might be an attempt as "self-fulfillment" for the purposes of staging wider "clash of civilizations" apocalypse scenarios. In that prohecy, supposedly, the last pope would be proceeded by a gloria olivae pope, a pope, it was thought, to have some connection to the Benedictine order... Benedictines.... Benedict.... Ratzinger obligingly helped "fulfill" the "prophecy" by choosing Benedict for his papal name.  The last pope, so the prophecy runs, would be Petrus Romanus, Peter the Roman, who, we are told, would feed his flock amid Great Tribulation(a wonderful phrase to have around for all the dispensationalists out there, as it allows them to indulge in their own masturbatory apocalyptic prognostications).

Well, now it seems that even The Daily Bell is getting in on the bandwagon, as the conclave meets (or, as the case may be, has already met and elected its next pope):

Fulfilling Prophecy, Church Considers Peter the Roman as Next Pope

Now consider these statements:

"We can see a Peter is being seriously considered. This brings up another issue, which is whether Church officials are actively mimicking papal prophecy on purpose. In other words, certain elements of the Church may WANT to fulfill certain "prophecies" for certain reasons.

"This fits with our theory that Majick Arts and certain prophecies generally are part of a larger dominant social theme used by the elites to propagate superstition and awe. People are willing to ascribe all sorts of ghastly things to those in charge behind the scenes, and we figure some of these belief structures may be cultivated by the powers-that-be.

"We can surely see this in the so-called Illuminati symbolism that is increasingly rife in Western culture. There are various theories as to why the top elites encourage this sort of Masonic imagery but our suspicion has always been that it simply suits the top elites to propagate this sort of occult signage.

"But at the very top, we don't think the elites believe much of anything. They seem to be master manipulators and are apt to USE modern or Biblical prophecy to their advantage.

"While we won't speculate as to how various prophecies came into being, we do think the power elite is not averse to taking advantage of them to help push forward its cause of global governance. We think, for instance, that the powers-that-be want to make Jerusalem an independent holy city with its own laws and power base – just as the City of London is. If mimicking or accommodating Biblical prophecy can help in this quest, then so be it.

"We also tend to believe in the possibility of a so-called Black Church. Like any other organization in this day and age, the Catholic Church, a tremendously powerful and wealthy organization, is surely penetrated by those promoting globalism. Again, these individuals are surely not averse to using the fulfillment of prophecy to incite superstition and awe that accommodates its goals and encourages their fulfillment."

Is the church penetrated by a globalist-occult group? Well, yes... but that's a whole other story. Is the goal of the elite to make Jerusalem a kind of independent holy city as the Daily Bell avers? Yes, I tend to think so, and anyone with half an acquaintance with big-oil sponsored American dispensationalism of the pre-tribulational Rapture variety, or even pre-millenial variety, could tell you why. It could be neatly made into a fulfillment. But, as I've said here before, the whole dispensationalist system is a massive deception to begin with.

It's easy to fulfill prophecy when you invent the prophecy, and control its interpretation.

And is all of it being done in a kind of global magickal operation of staged fulfillments of carefully popularized and cultivated versions of prophecy(stop and think about it: most people in the world, even if they are not Christian or or any faith, think the whole Rapture-Pretribulation complex is actually historic Christian doctrine. That is not accidental, and would have required quiet elite backing all along the way, and as Dr. de Hart and I attempted to show in Yahweh the Two-Faced God, that's exactly what they did).

So regardless of what happens in the current papal conclave, it's best to remember two things. The papal claims are themselves spurious, and for those of certain theological sensibilities, blasphemous and, for the Eastern Orthodox Catholic, heretical. This is, after all, an institution claiming infallibility that once roasted people alive for disagreeing with it. Its claims remain absolute, and, funny that, that was the only thing at Vatican Two that remained unchanged, and was expressed in "good old fashioned Vatican One terms." The second thing we'd best remember is precisely that "other half" of Christendom, the Orthodox half, the "Orthodox civilization" as Samuel Huntington called it in his Clash of Civilizations. That half, when true to itself, gives papal conclaves a big "ho-hum," it's more apocalypse theater by an institution claiming an authority that, by Orthodox lights, is not genuinely catholic at all, and indeed, as one 19th century Russian theologian - Alexey Khomiakov put it - "the pope is the first Protestant."

If a "Peter" is elected, or, has been elected by the time this blog appears, and the west's oligarchy marches glibly on to ever more staged fulfillments, then my reaction is to remember that, whatever miseries it might invoke, it is, in the final analysis, deception. These people are no less capable of manipulating the papacy as they are the symbols and doctrines of (any) religion for their own purposes.

See you on the flip side.

    A shameful indictment … according to a clergy abuse victims group, out of more than 150 in the College of Cardinals, only two papal candidates are ‘clean’ of sex abuse scandals. The group named Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle of the Philippines and Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn of Austria as the only papal contenders untainted by sex abuse scandals. It also released a “dirty dozen” list. So which way will they vote, to heal the church or to satisfy a ‘prophecy’/agenda? With so many compromised member candidates it should be for healing, but I suspect they will vote to continue and conceal as before. [The Telegraph: urlin.it/396f1 ]

    Another revelation concerning “Julilee” this is t totally unknown concept! As in All debt are forgiven and people let out of prison!

    So if there is a total collapse I will not be surprised because Jubilee should have happened around the year 2000 give or take a few years!

    And you can bet nobody who is owed money would dare to admit there is such a thing! But really it would be the best thing that ever happened to us especially in America’s current debt situation. It would mean a new start across the board for everybody in the country!

    So go spin your plans call your spin doctors! It is going to happen one way or another because it is supposed to happen like it did in that book or bible whether they wanted it do or not! Hey the priests didn’t like it either!

    Hmm? What about the beginning of the last century was there not a depression there as well? I don’t think we can dodge this bullet either in our day in time in the beginning of this century either! Because it was supposed to happen according to God! So you can shut us real prophets up kick us out of town put us through financial ruin or hardship!

    But your day may be coming fairly soon to!

    Does the term “vengence is mine sayeth the lord” this is one of many times I will not have to argue but just sit back and watch it come to pass! And no its not about me it is an all inclusive thing that many of you already see some of the signs!

    People with money never want to let go of it and the control they try to maintain because of it!

    We have called weather storms acts of God but I wonder and maybe you should to? A total economic collapse could as well be an act of God as well!

    For those who want to shut us up about the year of Jubilee an across the board forgiveness of all sins or debt and or debts! I believe

  3. James Dempsey on March 5, 2013 at 8:45 pm

    I don’t care to get into this stuff cuz if you haven’t received the Holy Spirit that you can prove! Well i just am not interested in the latest gossip! Or theological quarlles!

    All I can say if a day is like 1000 years and 1000 years is like a day! Then what time is it on Gods or Jesus time clock according to that book? Which i will not stick my nose into unless i hear something from God through the spirit usually through fasting and prayer “”1st””!!!

    HMM? From Jesus it is the beginning of the 3rd day and from the father 7th day from Adam! So we have the number 3 and the number 7! Numerologically speaking does that mean anything to anybody besides me?

    To me it means the availability of some serious spiritual power and revelation for those receive the spirit and then continue to fast and pray only! And put their bible and their previous theology aside! And listen only to and for God! Ya I know it is called sacrificing your flesh or dieing to your flesh!

    I would be willing to bet even the most critical bible Genius or Scholar will be blown away and soon learn to CALL IT ALL FOR NOT! All their books and learning and teaching and degree’s etc. etc For starting on and continuing on this new direction and or Journey led only by the Holy Spirit! I can relate to many especially the apostle Paul!

    When you realize the true simplicity of the plan and how much power you get from just simply doing the same thing over and over and over again! And you realize like I did eventually! Anybody did I say anybody? Could do this it is so simple a small child could indeed do it as well!

    But instead we are brainwashed our whole life most of us are if we grew up in a church we are religio centric depending on what denomination we were born into in your particular family or upbringing beliefs!

    You say you “walk by faith and not by sight”!

    And yet the first place you look or the first thing you do is grab or open your bible to argue some worthless point being right or wrong according to your or someone elses interpretation of scripture! In otherfwords “you walk by Sight and not by faith”! Which is what all the churches and denominations do on a daily! I am so sick of hearing and watching this I just quit all together!

    And you think or take it as though it is me who is ticked off! I say know it is the Holy Spirit who is offended! And as well I suppose Jesus and the Father to as well who are offended! By what we call church as usual or walk by Sight and not by faith! Whguich wazs the complete opposit of what Jesus was hoping we would all man, woman, or child become and like i say he made it so easy so simple even a totally illiterate person or child could do it.

    And have the very same power they had in the book of Acts! Why we don’t understand the book of acts! Is because there is a book missing between the 4 gospels and the book of acts! It should rightfully be know as “The Book Of The Upper Room” and then 20-30-40…. pages with no writing on it like an empty notebook . As in “for what we do in Secret ” god will reveal many things to us and empower us all at the same time through fasting and prayer.

    Now you know they had already received the Holy Spirit in the gospels and they fasted and prayed in Secret in the upper room sharing what each was hearing from God! But they never wrote it down or compiled all the revelations from the 12 and the 120 while they were doing this all.

    Pentecost is a spiritual fire baptism like the priest going into the Holy of hollies to sprinkle the blood on the altar to be burnt up!

    So the day of Pentecost was a much higher spiritual level then the original or initial shock receiving the Holy Spirit the first time in the gospels! When Jesus breathed on the and said receive yea the Holy Spirit!

    How many other books are missing! And this one would be the most important because more than a few people would have to pause and wonder why you would or should have a title page and then nothing but a bunch of blank pages???

    You see WE all have a book of revelations coming or waiting for us to seek but first you have to have “the real Holy Spirit or baptism there of” Or you can’t even begin to fast and pray and wait to hear from God! You could call it the book of unsolved mysteries as well I suppose! But it is best to call it the book of the upper room! Just to put a question mark in your head or your mind and wonder?

    So when I see or look around what is going on in all the churches! The arguing the corruption the deceipt I am not surprised because it is plain to see we kicked God the holy Spirit out of the church so we could attract “more money” sell more books or bibles and tapes an sermons and sel sell sell anything we can think of to make an extra buck!

    So when you fast and pray and wait to hear a word or dream or vision from God! Who are you putting first? You are putting God before your bible!

    So how much of this crap you speak of would even be an issue or an argument! If one you have to have the Holy Spirit 1st and 2nd you have to fast and pray and hear from God before you are even allowed by God to open a bible!

    This would eliminate 99.9% of the junk you and many others spew out which you don’t even deserve the right to search out or speak of! So you see Mr. Researcher! When it comes to you freaken research or opinion and you by step rule number 1 (I know you don’t have the spirit) and rule number 2 you didn’t fast and pray and ask seek knock to hear from God first! Everything you say is a moot point because you have to walk the walk before you can talk the talk!

    I’d say like as a young kid “you got gypt”! And guess what we all got gypt one way or another! You cannot get this in a school or a Seminary! cuz when i hear this the first thing that comes to my mind is you are a phoney I don’t care what denomination you hail from! So when I see the pope resigned i say whoop dee do where is that in the bible anyway?

    Well Joseph, sounds to me the general public will be in dire need of some really sound discernment if it expects to come out safely on the other end of this psyche-shredder ploy looming on the horizon.

    How does a culture of idiot-box zombies do that when the predators have a finger on every pulse and quivering fiber of the matrix, ready to pounce at any significant threat to exposure?

    Like the good Dr. Farrell said in one of his books talking about the elites, well the same can be said about Rome.

    Great post, Joseph, fantastic even.

    You said:

    It’s easy to fulfill prophecy when you invent the prophecy, and control its interpretation

    it allows them to indulge in their own masturbatory apocalyptic prognostications

    These dispensationalist folks are close to apocalyptic orgasims – check out the following website – all kinds of free material, etc.:


    Also check out Thomas Horn on a video search and there are almost 6,000 video clips of this character and he’s only 1 of many. If the Vatican does in fact pick Ghana’s Cardinal PETER Turkson, turn out the lights and call the law, bedlam in the world of dispensationalism and C. I. Scofield.

      Hi Jeff,

      there’s another side to this coin- although I’ve already posted this info (as if anyone was really interested) do check out an alternative for Peter Turkson (1st 2 minutes suffice):


      at the end of the day none of us peons really knows what’s going on behind the scenes- guess only time will tell if prophecyofthepopes or Leo Zagami is the real deal or none of the above-

      stay well- regards-

    The ‘apocalypse theater’ is definately subscribed to by about 4/5 of humanity, the Hindu Kali Yuga, the Jewish messiah, Christ’s return, the Rapture, the Mahdi, the new age Matreya and Pike’s Masonic enthronement of reason.

    The stage is set.

    The Muslims are being radicalized by the Salafis and Gulen, Israel is being backed into a corner, NATO is pressing on Russia, China is being aggravated by Japan, India has the bomb, the socialists are winning in South America and the West is going through economic turmoil.

    The script calls for a global depression, radicalization and that all important Archduke Ferdinand spark.

  9. Robert Barricklow on March 4, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    That deception is starring in the apocalyptic theater(for those in-the-know) – is no suprise. That Sandy Hook, 9/11, etc. Productions, also has a Pope Puppet Theatre division – is no suprise. As these theatres go way back to the beginning of Christendom, when Constantine and the Church scratched each others backs. The Pope Theatre was open for business.
    (it goes even further back, but whose counting)
    The only question is how deep the Pope Theatre production will be. For, like the onion, once one layer is peeled, another & another, is there for your discovery. Except you were supposed to work hard and cleverly to find “it”, so that you would beieve it. But yet, your really only are a few steps down. In this end game, anti-climax, after anti-climax…
    It’s hard to get ahead of whatever power curve is being played-out/behind the scenes.
    But, we know we’re being played. It’s just that,
    can we get ahead of their curve
    and stop the presses?

    • Margaret on March 6, 2013 at 12:02 am

      Last month in Brussels The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State found Joseph Ratzinger, Elizabeth Windsor, top Roman cardinals and Canadian PM Stephen Harper guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity. I hope this trial by citizens has created the spark that will ignite fires for a cleansing revolution and provide such a change of scene. March 4th was the deadline for the convicted criminals to surrender to the Court. Failing that, international warrants are to be issued empowering citizens to make arrests, launch public actions to occupy their local churches and seize their assets and properties! So far, this movement has spread to 15 countries and there are many willing activists! I doubt this will stop the presses: the Vatican black ops are already in Italian and corporate media discrediting the tribunal and citizen jurors. But there will be indy media coverage. Updates will be posted at itccs(dot)org.

      • LSM on March 6, 2013 at 5:50 am

        exactly, Margaret- let’s just hope the ITCCS will gain enough steam-rolling to make it viable-

        believe it or not much of this is being covered by Italian MSM (my one Italian co-worker has confirmed this) but I don’t doubt for one second that Kevin Annett’s efforts are being pummled by many factions in Italy-

        but at the moment Italy is in chaos (so what else is new?) and was just recently announced on German radio that Italy seems to be “un-governable” (so what else is new?)-

        so let’s hope that “order out of chaos” will actually have a positive effect on humanity!

        I truly hope you are well- regards-

    It doesn’t matter what research you may have done on Luciferians. This all still may just be a front for what it essentially a calculated program of freaking people out by any means possible, and it is quite possible that clans of genuine Luciferians are entertained and enlisted on the side as agitators. That could very well be the case with Sandy Hook.for instance, and there are plenty of mass events that be used as further stage craft as witness the recent 30 minute half blackout at the Super Bowl. In the final analysis our Kung Fu is stronger than their Kung Fu. That is Mr. Farrell’s essential message. Bluffers are always cowards.

  12. Maxwell on March 4, 2013 at 8:20 am

    It seems there is doubt that St. Malachy ever went past the count of 111 Popes.
    I recall reading an account that described one of the religious orders, possibly the Benedictine, as having allegedly added the 112th Pope. Evidently Malachy’s original manuscript did not include this “Petrus Romanus”. If that is in fact true, the Vatican would be well aware of it.
    But I would be highly amused if it transpired that the next Pope happened to come from Romania. But I don’t know if there are many Catholics there.

  13. dedre on March 4, 2013 at 7:41 am

    Great post; one of your best commentaries! About time somebody spoke up about how prophesy and agenda go hand-in-hand…and he who makes both, owns the chess board. Manipulation and deception everywhere. The world has been played for a fool.

  14. incognito on March 4, 2013 at 7:16 am

    The Daily Bell is a pretty good publication but it has this nasty habit of stating opinions on matters they haven’t reserched deeply. For example:

    “But at the very top, we don’t think the elites believe much of anything.”

    anybody who’s done serious research on this subject knows that they are Luciferians. See:

    SK Bain author of The Most Dangerous Book in the World: 911 as Ritual Murder; followed by professor Tom Breidenbach:



    the Bell one time had an article by “Ronnie Holland” which SWOONED over Colombian ex-president Alvaro Uribe and his “achievements”. Uribe is the local underboss of the Bush drug cartel and has worked with these drug dealers since at least the early 80s. His achievments were the colonization of Colombia as a sovereign nation.

    The Daily Bell….. such asses sometimes.

    • amunaor on March 4, 2013 at 12:12 pm

      Let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water.

      Is ‘Radio Free America’ anything like Wisner’s Wurlitzer, which staffed CIA outposts, such as ‘Radio Free Europe’ and ‘Radio Liberty’ with rabid pro-wall-street apparatchiks, lambasting, so called, commies, or any other impediment to the ‘Free Racketeers’ all over the world?

      First of all, take note of its location:
      American Freedom Radio
      Round Rock ‘Texas’, 78680

      Central Texas
      The State of Big Oil,
      The State of the Military Industrial Complex, incubated exponentially from the moment the Bush gang with CIA murdered Kennedy in Texas.

      ……..and god knows what other villainy, such as Enron, has been cooked up within this cauldron of criminality.

      Do you have a link for The Bell’s Uribe article?

      • incognito on March 4, 2013 at 8:48 pm

        There’s a host on American Freedom Radio called Santilli. He works for the evil-doers. He recently did a half-assed hit-job on Gordon Duff. But Dr Kevin Barrett, who is also a radio host on AFR, is as pure as mountain water. Those are the breaks.

        Just google: “Ron holland” uribe Colombia Reagan

        he was saying that Uribe was Colombia’s Reagan…what an ass.

        Yeah, I think they’re jut naive, not disinfo.

        • amunaor on March 4, 2013 at 10:24 pm

          Well Holland may have a legit argument comparing Uribe to Reagan, because fact is Reagan was in bed with Pinochet; who In 1985 John McCain visited, describing the meeting with Pinochet “as friendly but noted that Pinochet does seem obsessed with the threat of communism.” Gee, I wonder who planted that bug into Pinochet’s deranged psyche?

          It was Vice President Poppa Bush, who under another rabid anti-Communist, Reagan, was running CIA sponsored death squads in the region, destabilizing Unions and ‘disappearing’ Labor leaders and workers unfriendly to the ‘Free Racketeers’….more familiar to us as Freidman economics, or rather Reaganomics.

          Alvaro Uribe is no different than Pinochet both tools in the pocket of this Cabal that uses anti-Communist rhetoric and psychology as a cover and justification to murder, plunder and subjugate in the name of ‘Free Markets’.

    • QuietRiot on March 4, 2013 at 2:58 pm

      I like the Daily Bell, but I also see it as naive. That said, when it hits the mark, it can be very powerful. It makes sense to me what you say about the Shadow Elite. By their fruits ye shall know them.
