Today's blog and high octane speculation concerns the recent indictment of Angelo Cardinal Becciu by the Vatican, a story that was noted by many of you, but which I am going to concentrate on two versions of it sent by C.V. and W.D.:

Cardinal among 10 indicted by Vatican for financial crimes

Vatican indicts 10 people, including a cardinal, over an international financial scandal

Now, as one might expect, I have a lot of very high octane speculation to advance in connection to this story.  But first, let's inventory the salient facts as these two articles outline them: (1) Becciu was elevated to the cardinalate by Pope Francis only a year prior to his indictment by Vatican officials for a variety of alleged crimes, among which include embezzlement, nepotism, and abuse of office; (2) Becciu was indicted with other Vatican officials for the purchase of an over-priced building in London's fashionable South Kensington district, a purchase that sounds suspiciously like money laundering; (3) two of these officials were connected to the Vatican's Financial Intelligence unit; (4) the Pope must "sign off" on any indictment of a Cardinal, which apparently he has done; (5) Cardinal Becciu is denying any wrong doing, maintaining his innocence, and asserting that he is the victim of a "conspiracy" against him, without him naming who he thinks the conspirators are and why they're conspiring against him; (6) the investigation also touches on George Cardinal Pell of  Australia, and finally (and in my opinion most importantly), (7) the indictments, according to the first article, "underscore Pope Francis' determination to cure the rot in Vatican finances, even if it involves messy public hearings."

This inventory, and particularly the last point, brings me to my high octane speculation of the day. So let's go back and remember a few other things that have been alleged in recent years about the Vatican and its finances.

Firstly, this is not by any stretch of the imagination the first time strange events have swirled around the Vatican's finances. It has long been suspected that the sudden death of Pope John-Paul I (Albino Cardinal Luciani)a mere 33 days after his election as pope (33 days!?!?  Hmmm....), had something to do with the Vatican Bank and Luciani's determination to end the rot. Beyond the suspicious circumstances of his death, I've long thought it was not merely coincidental that Luciani, as a cardinal, also served as the Patriarch of Venice, an obvious and deeply historical connection to the world of banking and high finance. At the time, it was also strongly rumored that there were ties between the Vatican Bank, the Italian mafia, and the dark underworld of Italian secret societies and Masonry, rumours that continued on into the pontificate of John-Paul II. Then came Benedict XVI (Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger), a close associate of John-Paul II, and well-known within the Vatican as a "conservative." What most do not know about Cardinal Ratzinger was that he was one of the clerical peririti or "experts" that were brought by their bishops to Vatican II, during which the Father Ratzinger was definitely on the side of the "reformers", making his subsequent excommunicati0n of traditional Latin tridentine rite Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre and his followers explainable.  In this light, it's interesting to note the rumours that have swirled around Ratzinger's resignation, a rumoured "Obama-Clinton-Soros" "change of regime/government operation."

Enter Francis I (Jorge Cardinal Bergolio), from Argentina, the Pope who is allegedly determined to "cure the rot in Vatican finances, even if it involves messy public hearings."

What is very intriguing to note here is that of the last four popes, the one who most attracts the attention of Vatican watchers as being potentially the most serious about cleaning out the rot was the very last Italian pope, Albino Cardinal Luciani, Pope John-Paul I, who if you buy the theory that he was murdered - personally, I strongly lean that direction - was the last one who was serious. Again, notably, before being elected Pope he was the Cardinal-Patriarch of Venice.  No banking associations there. Since then, there have been a Polish, then a German, and now an Argentinian pope, and little has really changed. Consider the articles, and the indictment of Cardinal Becciu: little in the indictment as reported connects this latest financial scandal to those that rocked the pontificates of the two John-Pauls, which, when one examines them, open up a Pandora's box of associations to Michele Sindona, the mob, the Loge Propanganda Due  P2-Masonic scandals, all of which have several large and unresolved question marks hovering over them. By comparison, the current scandal surrounding Becciu and his fellow indictees seems rather small and tame by comparison. There are no dead bankers swinging from a noose beneath bridges in London with their pants pockets stuffed full of bricks, there are no secret and mysterious Masonic lodges with lists of members who are highly placed in the Italian government or the Vatican hierarchy, and so on.

There's no connection to any of that, save Francis himself, Jorge Cardinal Bergolio, Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina, whence the head of Loge Propaganda Due, Licio Gelli, fled after P2 was exposed by Italian authorities. That's a threadbare connection to be sure, but it nonetheless does raise questions about what may be going on here...

A few years ago, during one of her visits, Catherine Fitts and I were discussing Bergolio's, now Pope Francis', moves regarding an audit of the Vatican Bank. So we started looking, and discovered that Francis had appointed the same accounting firm of record to audit the Bank, as was the auditor of record for - get this - Lloyd's of London and the Bank of International Settlements. And this in a response to pressure to bring the Vatican Bank into the "standards" for international finance that the Western bankers demanded. Francis' other actions in apparent defiance of Roman Catholic standards of doctrine and piety have certainly raised eyebrows among some Catholic hierarchs and clergy, but viewed against this backdrop, begin to make some sort of bizarre, if not twisted, sense.

In that light, might we be looking at a distraction? An operation designed to deflect attention away from all of those other connections, and an attempt to offer up something - and individuals? - designed to reassure everyone that now, under the enlightened leadership of Francis, an end has been put to the rot, while in reality, the rot continues?

I don't know.

What I do get the sense is that something is still very rotten, and we're not being told everything (nothing new there). Cardinal Becciu may be guilty of the allegations in the indictment, or he may be, as he himself says, a victim of a conspiracy. If the later, it's much wider than 11 indictees, and much older than building purchases in South Kensington...

See you on the flip side...

    If this cardinal is innocent then he is a scapegoat or as Eastasians would say a sacrificial monkey. But the question is if this is a show trial what real big scandal is this a smokescreen for. what are the real beef sex scandals, ties to the NAZIs the truth behind the Donation of Constantine or something even more explosive?

      Mafia investigating mafia comes to nothing, as masonry investing masonry comes to nothing. Therefore Pax Romana was always a scam, against paganus in provinces.

      The Roman exceptionalism has always needed a deified position, to hide behind, in the skirts of a pontiff, the deified emperor, dictator perpetuo.

      The Romans accused everyone, for being barbarians, while they themselves were even more barbaric, promoting their own exceptionalism as civilization.

      When Paul speaks of barbarians – in Colossians 3:11 – he is addressing the Roman hypocrisy, in contrast to the noble savage, the Scythian.

      Pope Benedict XVI founded the AIF in 2010 to oversee Vatican financial transactions. It is charged with ensuring that internal banking policies comply with international financial standards.  Read more
      The AIF was renamed the Supervisory and Financial Information Authority (ASIF) in December 2020 authorized by Pope Francis early in the month. This should promote sufficient confusion as Rebranding is an old trick.

          Public Notice to Pope Francis and the World – January 2021
          The Municipal United States is a rogue entity operating under Roman Civil Law; it has no granted authority to speak for, represent, indebt, or otherwise obligate this country or its people.
          It is attempting to stand and to “represent” us in the face of our States being in Session and our international government, our unincorporated Federation of States, The United States of America, being in operation in international and global jurisdiction.
          The Municipal United States is an independent, international city state that exists only under the provisions of The Constitution of the United States, which has been breached by the Municipal citizenry. This entity has operated in Breach of Trust since 1860. Its “laws” have been misapplied to American State Nationals and American State Citizens resulting in the extortion of land and labor assets and other assets naturally belonging to those same injured Americans.
          As a result, it is the responsibility of Pope Francis and the Roman Curia and the City of Rome to fold their franchise and remove their idols from our shores, to release all Municipal Corporations that have been formed under conditions of fraud and usurpation since 1870 to the custody and ownership of our unincorporated Federation of States, whose delegation of powers they abused, to be re-chartered under our Public Law or liquidated as we see fit. This action is dictated by ecclesiastical, international, and global law, as well as the Roman Civil Law itself. Read more:

            [Snips from June 2020 link below]
            So also, you have run the Municipal United States Government under Roman Civil Law and under the Roman Maxim, “Let him who will be deceived, be deceived.”

            And you even bought your legal insurance policy, the Disclaimer placed in the undisclosed Enabling Clause of every “Act” of the Municipal Congress from 1860 until today: “This Act shall not effect any right thus previously established.”

            All this and much more has been done to “legalize” all the crap you’ve pulled here, but in the end, you have caused incredible misery and destruction, misused and abused our country, lied to our people, and are responsible for sponsoring the most unaccountable, venal, and power-crazed government on Earth.

            The entire world will know what you are doing. It won’t look good. And what American would knowingly participate in such a farce in detriment to their own country and people?
            So you have arranged via a “Chinese” Elder to loan the vermin inhabiting our capitol city $80 billion dollars. Strange, that is the same exact amount that certain Chinese Generals received as a bribe to get them to sell their people into the same kind of slavery you have engineered here.

            Those same Chinese Generals have since been captured and killed and amazingly, their money has ended up in “the” Republic Treasury.

            Miracles abound.

            You are being called out and on the carpet, Francis. The evil you have sustained and nurtured, together with the pagan worship of Mammon and Baal, is exposed. Your shameful and secretive promotion of “Freemasonry” — the worship of Mammon and Baal in the modern day — is also exposed.

            The corruption of the Church has spilled out and runneth over into the halls of the United Nations, too.

            Here are all these good Catholics, supporting you and thinking you are such a wonderful man, and yet, just look at what you have done and what you have been involved in?

            Plots to murder Donald Trump? To remove him from office? To put Mike Pence, a known child molester, in charge? And then remove him, and put another shill in place?

            Come on! Wake up! Earth to Francis! Earth to the Joint Chiefs!

            The bankers and Galli (attorneys) and the corporations are the ones that have to be “sacrificed” and all the actual assets returned to the people they belong to. Now. Without any more scheming and without any more deceit and without any more mafiosi-style “reasoning” .

    Conspiracy in the Vatican?
    Why the name itself, Vatican, exudes conspiracy.
    John-Paul I was only 33 days in and was poisoned.

    The “conspirators” were probably stone-cold Catholics;
    and therefore had to go.

    Definitely not 21Century Woke-material, for the NWO Religion
    that changes according to worldwide fashion industry standards.

    I’m out of my depth on this subject, but reading “Pope Francis’ determination to cure the rot in Vatican finances” makes me wonder if it’s an operation to polish the Vatican Bank’s image, in preparation for something. What exactly that “something” might be, I don’t know. But with this pope’s cozying up to the WEF and a Rottenchild, I’m reminded of Babylon’s Banksters and that ancient connection between banking and the temple, and I suspect the Vatican is going to try to take some finance-related role in the oligarch’s hoped-for Great Reset.

    • Joseph P. Farrell on July 7, 2021 at 2:33 pm

      As I mentioned in my “tome” in the very last chapter of the very last volume, the papacy may be swept up into the New World Order by dint of its own claims… in which case, it could provide the banksters the needed “approval” for their currency schemes…

      • ragiza on July 7, 2021 at 6:15 pm

        My guess is that “they”, the big money/power elite who are pulling the strings on their western political puppets, probably think a church led movement against what they are intending to institute, would kill their chances. When Reagan came to power and started a big move against the Sov. Union, the Pope and the Catholic church were enrolled to play large visible and behind the scenes roles. “They” don’t want nationalism, constitutions describing people’s rights, religious identities, they want blanked out serfs. I think they have thought well ahead in terms of how organized religion might affect that.

      • FiatLux on July 8, 2021 at 1:25 am

        Ah, thanks for that interesting tidbit, Dr. Farrell — I haven’t read the “tome.” So many books, so little time…

    Your characterization of Ratzinger being against the traditional Latin mass is not correct. He allowed the FSSP to continue its practices and in 2007 he issued the Summorum Pontificum which released restrictions to the practise of the Latin mass, which allowed the current explosion of the traditional mass to occur.

    He did more to reverse Vatican II than any other pope in history. He effectively saved the Tridintine Mass.

    • Joseph P. Farrell on July 7, 2021 at 2:36 pm

      Then why the excommunication of Lefebvre? Ostensibly for consecration of bishops not authorized by the Vatican? Therein is the rub… Ratzinger only moved in my opinion BECAUSE of Lefebvre. And now a pope putting more restrictions on it?

      No. I’m not convinced.

      • ats on July 7, 2021 at 5:31 pm

        I don’t see how Ratzinger comes into play being the bad guy here? Ratzinger and Lefebvre’s Protocol of the 5th of May is clearly an attempt by Ratzinger at conciliation between the Holy See and Lefebvre.

        Before this, the satanists within the Vatican made a fuss about Lefebvre’s expanding celebration of the Latin Mass and pressured the Holy See to halt Lefebvre’s ordination of bishops. At this point only authorized bishops in the Latin rite could authorize priests within their jurisdiction to practice the traditional mass. Lefebvre needed to appoint new bishops to grow the community.

        After the Protocol of Agreement, Lefebvre was told to wait on the appointment of the new bishops. He refused and appointed them anyway and John Paul II was forced to issue the Ecclesia Dei, which is still incredibly conciliatory and an attempt to bring Lefebvre back into the fold. He put the pope in between a rock and a hard place, John Paul II couldn’t just ignore what had happened.

        Later Cardinal Bernardin Gantin was the one who issued the Dominus Marcellus Lefebvre excommunicating Lefebvre (with no mention of the pontiff’s intent or support at all, btw). Lefebvre sealed his own fate by not going back on the appointments. Ratzinger and John Paul II are completely innocent in this debacle and it’s quite obvious from their multiple attempts to amend the situation that what happened was not their intended outcome.

        Then in 2009 Ratzinger issues an official decree through the Office of the Congregation of Bishops, the same office that excommunicated Lefebvre, lifting the excommunication on everyone involved, including the bishops. It’s signed by Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re and it clearly states multiple times that it was an initiative of Ratzinger and it was his expressed wish this be done.

        I don’t think you can blame Ratzinger in any of this. At any level. At any point. Throughout this entire debacle. I think it’s unfair and untrue to say that Ratzinger was against the Latin mass when every single action he took says otherwise.

        I also think his own words attest to this:

        • Foglamp on July 7, 2021 at 8:57 pm

          Maybe, but is it not alleged by some that Ratzinger was directly involved in the murder of John Paul I as a result of his having launched an investigation into pedophiles among the Roman Catholic clergy, of whom Ratzinger is allegedly one? Is it not also alleged by some that the threat of exposure of his pedophilia and his role in the murder of JPI was the leverage used by Bergoglio in forcing Ratzinger’s resignation?
          Is there smoke, at any level, at any point, without fire?

          • ats on July 8, 2021 at 12:27 am

            This is all P2 propaganda and disinfo. The facts are facts and irrefutable. Ratzinger went directly against the gay mafia in the Church defrocked, demoted, and relegated many to confinement. He lost. One man against an insurmountable rot. The entire global media was against him and implicated him for the sexual abuse cover up. Same as they always do, project. He is a prisoner in the Vatican, abandoned by his clergy and abandoned by his flock.

            As soon as Francis came to power, he back tracked all of Ratzinger’s moves and reinstanted many of the *known* and suspected pedophiles to their positions of power and access to children.

            Has the Globohomo Francis cured the pedophilia problem of the church? If not, then why has it disappeared from public discussion?

            Use your brains, Ratzinger is to Trump as Francis is to Biden. It’s almost the same game plane.

            I challenge anybody who questions Ratzinger’s authenticity to read his prophetic 1969 Christmas radio address and then to tell me this man is who you say he is.


            Meanwhile you have the Globohomo Francis signing everything as the Bishop of Rome and giving every occult indication he believes he is Petrus Romanus.

            Thank you Joseph. I’m sorry if I come off as aggressive in Ratzinger defense. I feel passionate about the subject. It stems from the guilt I feel for falling victim to the nefarious narratives, lies, and sophisticated character assassination this man has been subjected to. Especially, for believing them for so many years.
