This show by Dave Emory is dedicated to exposing the Opus Dei secret society, a reactionary Catholic organization founded by Father Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer. After having quietly gained momentum behind the scenes for a couple of decades, Opus Dei came to the forefront of the Church’s public life by playing an important role in the ascension of both Jean-Paul II and Benedict XVI. In this broadcast, Dave Emory explores several connections that seem to indicate that Opus Dei is in fact part of the Fascist International, i.e. the network of all fascist and extreme-right organizations in the world. Among many elements, the radio host explores the P2 lodge, the murder of Roberto Calvi, P2 lodge Grand Master Licio Gelli, Pope Benedict’s personal assistant Georg Ganswein, the Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver couple, the beatification of Aloysius Stepinac, the role played by Sam Brownback in U.S. politics, etc. The written description for this show is excellent, like it is often the case with For The Record. Check it out and listen to the show, of course.
On the other hand, I must say that the thing that striked me the most in this broadcast, about Opus Dei, is the fact that it was founded the same year that the Muslim Brotherhood was, in 1928. It can’t be a coincidence. There is no such thing in this world as « coincidences ». Most of the times, things are made to happen. And because they are not overtly advertised in the press or in governmental brochures, it doesn’t mean that they are not happening. To me, it looks as if there was a plan put into execution by the forces of the Fascist International to literally seize control of all institutions to have a maximum global effect. If Hitler and Mussolini took control of the world of politics in their own countries and tried to expand it then beyond their borders, it seems that others tried the same coup for the two most important religions, in terms of world power, geo-political and geo-strategical interests, Catholicism and Islam. By founding the Muslim Brotherhood, Hasan al-Banna may very well have sabotaged and sinked all chances that the Arab/Muslim world had to achieve modernity and to realize the ideals of the Enlightenment. And by founding Opus Dei, it seems that Father Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer tried to do the move in the opposite direction. The western world was on its way to realize fully the potential of modernity and the ideals of the Enlightenment, and that was accomplished in the ’60s and ’70s, or so it seems. Father Balaguer cooked up something in the shadows to try to overturn the stream of evolution, and it looks like his movement gained credibility and influence over time, to the point where one could argue today that it now controls the Vatican.

I must be honest, this documentary is absolutely disgusting to watch. And yet, it is essential to a better understanding of not only Nazism in the Balkans but also of how the Catholic Church is continuing its Inquisition against infidels. Seizing the window presented by WWII, the Church made an alliance with the Ustashe regime of Croatia to be in a position to torture and murder thousands of Orthodox Serbs. According to an estimate, 700.000 to 800.000 Serbs were killed in Croatia by the Nazi Ustashe, along with Jews and Gypsies. For the Church, it was a golden « opportunity » not to be missed, as the demarcation line between the Catholic world of the West and the Orthodox world of the East lies in the Balkans. Through mass extermination and aided by Hitler, the Church could push forward the demarcation line. Somewhere around 244.000 Serbs converted or were converted to Catholicism. Nazi Croatians perpetrated during the fews years of the Ustashe regime absolutely awful atrocities that disgusted even the German Nazis. We are talking about here of mass murder of children, rape, gauging out of eyes, cutting ears, tongues and nozes off, beheading, dismembering, death pits, torture…in short, all things that were seen during the Inquisition. Concentration camps were used thoroughly as well.
The leader of the Ustashe regime was Ante Pavelic. Because of the enthousiastic collaboration of the Church, he was able to use Catholic monasteries, namely Franciscan, as warehouses and strongholds. Pavelic could count on the good services and « faith » of Archbishop Stepinac. Currently, during the war, Croatian citizens were told by Ustashe regime and Church representatives to literally « kill all the Serbs ». It was done thoroughly along with the killing of Orthodox priests and destruction of churches. The documentary recalls that on the occasion of a visit to Rome, representatives of the Ustashe regime brought with them, to be presented to the Pope, a basket which contained some 40 pounds of human eyes…that probably belonged previously to Serbs. The Ustashe regime was so brutal and sadistic that some among the German hierarchy felt uneasy and frankly disgusted, as Dr Herman Neubacher who asked Hitler to get rid of Ante Pavelic. When the Ustashe regime fell and the National Liberation Army took control of Croatia, some of the top Ustashe officials found refuge in monasteries, such as St Jerome, or in South America, in Argentina for example, through the ratlines provided by the Vatican. There they could continue their existence under new names and identities. On May 5th 1945, Ante Pavelic escaped and found refuge in the Monastery of St Diogene near Salzburg, before moving to Rome in another monastery to live under the name of Father Gomez or Father Benares. Ironically, Tito, a Croatian Catholic, became the ruler of Yougoslavia, so Croats in the end became the victors of WWII in the Balkans. Sad but true.
I absolutely want to react to that unfortunate article written by Graeme Hamilton. First of all, I don’t know where Mr Hamilton resides. For myself, I have been residing in Quebec for the past 40 years, both in rural and urban areas, so I know my province. Last week, a story was presented by the Quebec media on certain bylaws prohibiting noize, such as construction or lawn mowing, in the city of Hampstead in the heart of Montreal, populated mainly by Jews. It was run, among others, by hosts like Richard Martineau and Benoit Dutrizac, as Hamilton’s article points out. However, I must disagree with the treatment of the facts presented by Hamilton. I know these folks. Being myself a strong opponent of anti-semitism, I wouldn’t hesitate to denounce them if they were guilty of that terrible psychological disease. If they were anti-semites, I think I would know.
To understand correctly the core of the argument, you have to go back in time to the centuries and decades during which the French-Canadian identity and spirit were formed. Following the takeover of New France by England in 1760, the French elite was either deported or left by itself for France, which let the people with only catholic priests as leaders. So the Catholic Church was given, by the circumstances, a carte blanche to do whatever they want with the population and its education. French-Canadians continued to evolve with only the voice of the Church to guide them, without any room for any other points of view. And that monopoly was only broken in the 1960s, when the Révolution Tranquille occured. Continuer la lecture
Again, it is a great pleasure for me to reference the work of a great journalist. Russ Baker has been doing a terrific job for many years, and since the publication of his masterpiece Family of Secrets, he hasn’t cease to work, enquire, search for trails of investigation, for leads to be able to bring new facts or evidence to the light of day on subjects or cases of interest. Here he takes on the difficult subject of Libya. I must say that what he presents in this new article makes a great deal of sense. In a nutshell, the Libyan war has been planned and orchestrated by elements of both French and Italian intelligence. The whole thing began with Qaddafi’s protocol chief, Nouri Al-Mesmari, visit to France in October 2010. Under the cover of alleged medical treatments, he began talks with French intelligence to examine the possibility of taking Qaddafi down. Among many elements Russ Baker’s excellent article dwells on, is a project that apparently was concocted by the European Union to NATO-ize the Mediterranean, strangely reminiscent of the mare-nostrum contemplated during the days of the Roman Empire. Also, mining and oil considerations have played a big role in the Libyan « uprising » if you consider that Libya exports 32% of its oil to Italy alone. Europe has no source of oil that is local. They have to import oil and other resources from neighbouring countries.
I just have one element to add and I think it is important. One year ago or so, Qaddafi threatened Europe to swarm the continent with Black immigration if the EU didn’t give him something like 5 bn euros a year. He made this incredible demand, that sounded rather like extortion or blackmail, during a two-day visit in Italy. Also during this trip, he hosted two « convert to Islam parties » which infuriated the Catholic Church. No surprise he got toppled… So first, you can familiarize yourself by listening to the interview with Russ Baker on the Peter B. Collins Show and then read the entire article. I also joined the article from the Mail Online that talks about Qaddafi’s threat.
