A Rare Jesuit Acknowledgement of Wlodimir Ledochowski


The 1st Jesuit blog article about Wlodimir Ledochowski since that in 2007
by Good Jesuit Bad Jesuit

Why are Jesuits writing about him so infrequently?

Wlodimir Ledochowski
born October 7 1866  
became Superior General February 11, 1915
died December 13, 1942
http://www.sj2014.net/blog/17-may-1915-ww1-moves-fr-general-to-switzerland

The First World War began in 1914, with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria.  There was a confrontation between Austria and Serbia (he was killed by a Yugoslav nationalist).  This initial confrontation triggered a series of alliances and led to to the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Germans against the British, French and Russians.  Thus it was essentially a battle of empires.  Italy was party of the triple alliance with the Germans and the Austrians but chose initially not to enter the war as it understood this as a defensive alliance and saw Austria as the agitators. By 1915 they shifted allegiance and entered the war on the British side.

Meanwhile in Rome Fr Wenz was to die in 1914, famously followed a day later by Pius X, some say of a broken heart as he witnessed Europe disintegrate in spite of his impressive efforts for peace.  Six months later the Jesuits elected their 26th Fr General.  Wlodimir Ledochowski was from an Austrian/Polish  aristocratic family and was to be general from 1915 to 1942. When Italy entered the war against Austria it was untenable for Ledochowski to stay in Rome, so he moved with the curia to Zizers, Switzerland, where he was able to govern with less disruption.

Jesuits were to serve as chaplains during the war on both sides.  The Irish Jesuit Fr Willie Doyle was one who was outstanding, and awarded and commended for his bravery.  He was to die during the Battle of Passchendeale after running here and there on the battlefield as an angel of mercy.  The publication of his spiritual writings and diaries have generated great interest in Ireland, he has been declared a Servant of God and his cause for beatification is open.  There is a blog on his writings here.

For posterity, here is the 2007 article from Good Jesuit Bad Jesuit:
http://goodjesuitbadjesuit.blogspot.com/2007/09/superior-general-wlodimir-ledochowski.html

A towering figure in Jesuit circles in the twentieth century was Fr. Wlodimir Ledochowski, SJ, elected 26th general of the Society in February 1915. He served until his death in December 1940. Elected during the turmoil of World War I, he governed the Society from Switzerland for three years to lessen the impact of that war on Jesuit matters. He went to Spain twice during 25 years as general, but hardly ever traveled beyond that.

In those more formal days, "exterior reverence" to the general prevailed. Jesuits kissed the hand of the general, addressing him as "Your Paternity." Other superiors (and even the priests when dealing with scholastics or brothers) were "Your Reverence." Like other superiors, the general had a fixed place in the refectory and in the recreation room. Much less formality exists today.

Fr. Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, SJ, succeeded Arrupe to became the Society's 29th general in 1983.
An important part of the general's work is communication: gathering information, making appointments, encouraging Jesuits worldwide. Fr. Ledochowski experienced both more rapid communication and a growing number of questions and issues with a world in turmoil. In voluminous correspondence he tried to adjust Jesuit life to rapid technological and political change.

Fr. Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, the Jesuits' general since 1983, experiences even more rapid means of communication and questions and issues, but he is also able to travel and meet Jesuits all over the world and to invite individuals and groups to come to meet with him. But he still signs something like 17,000 letters a year and has vast amounts of information to absorb

For such a towering figure - Last of the Great Roman Generals - should not the Jesuits be writing about Wlodimir Ledochowski more frequently?

Neo-Ultramontanism - Wiki Article

Neo-ultramontanism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neo-ultramontanism
Neo-ultramontanism (literally the new ultramontanism) is the belief of certain Catholics, primarily during the period immediately prior to Vatican I, that papal infallibility was not restricted to a small number of papal statements but applied ipso facto (by virtue of being said by the Pope) to all papal teachings and statements.

Although few of today's Catholic Church historians distinguish between neo-ultramontanism and the more moderate ultramontanism of mainstream nineteenth-century Catholicism, there were substantial differences between the two. The neo-ultramontanes wanted to pass by decree the most extreme definition of papal infallibility possible and did not wish for debates at all. They were, indeed, regarded as imprudent by more moderate ultramontanists who won the debate at Vatican I.

Origins and history

Neo-ultramontanism as a movement dates back to the writings of Joseph de Maistre, who in Du Pape ("about the Pope"), argued essentially that what the Pope says is true to the exclusion of all other contrary truths. In the following period the ideals of neo-ultramontanism were formulated - though for many years in a quite incoherent manner - to free the Church from the power of the secular state. Many who know about it see neo-ultramontanism as the most extreme reaction to the ideas promoted by the French Revolution, which made them turn to the papacy as the last bastion of truth. Its main bastion in these early days was the French journal Univers under the leadership of Louis Veuillot.
The term "neo-ultramontanism", however, was not coined until 1863, when it was used by one of its strongest adherents, the British lay convert William G. Ward and adopted by Cardinal Henry Manning. Ward's viewpoint can be summed up in the following article by Cuthbert Butler, the best historian of Vatican I:
  • He held that the infallible element of bulls, encyclicals, etc., should not be restricted to their formal definitions but ran through the entire doctrinal instructions; the decrees of the Roman Congregation, if adopted by the Pope and published with his authority, thereby were stamped with the mark of infallibility, in short “his every doctrinal pronouncement is infallibly rendered by the Holy Ghost”...
During the lead-up to Vatican I the neo-ultramontanes were very well organised and included within their ranks a substantial portion of the 601 bishops who voted on the question of infallibility at that council. They were concentrated in Western Europe, but did not manage to win the debate - a fact often attributed by liberal historians to their lack of theological and historical understanding of how the doctrine of infallibility was first proposed.

After Vatican I, neo-ultramontanism as a semi-organised movement declined as its chief adherents were not replaced. Pope Leo XIII never attempted to exercise infallibility and by the time of his death all the neo-ultramontane publications had been closed down or had changed their views on what was now "history" (Vatican I and the debates within it). However, some liberal theologians and historians have argued since the beginning of John Paul II's papacy that a view of papal infallibility analogous to that proposed by neo-ultramontanes has made a comeback. This has been especially true since the controversy surrounding the aftermath of Ordinatio Sacerdotalis in 1994 and The Tablet's article about that letter On Not Inventing Doctrine published a year and a half later. However, it ought to be emphasised that John Paul II and Benedict XVI have never cited nineteenth-century neo-ultramontanists as influences on their theological or ecclesiological viewpoints.

Criticism of term

Many Catholic Church historians are critical of the term "neo-ultramontanism" because they believe that it fails to clarify clearly the position of those who advocated it and that it was never in any general use: always being confined to a few of either its staunchest advocates or to strong opponents of its beliefs like Lord Acton.

Ultramontanism - Wiki Article

Ultramontanism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultramontanism

An image of Pope Alexander I. Ultramontane Catholics emphasized the authority of the Pope over temporal affairs of civil governments as well as the spiritual affairs of the Church.
Ultramontanism is a religious belief found within the Catholic Church that places strong emphasis on the prerogatives and powers of the Pope.

History

The term originates in ecclesiastical language from the Middle Ages: when a non-Italian man was elected to the papacy, he was said to be papa ultramontano, that is, a Pope from beyond the mountains (referring to the Alps). Foreign students at medieval Italian universities were also referred to as ultramontanes.

The word was revived but the meaning reversed after the Protestant Reformation in France, to indicate the 'man beyond the mountains' located in Italy. In France, the name ultramontain was applied to people who supported papal authority in French political affairs, as opposed to the Gallican and Jansenist factions of the indigenous French Catholic Church. The term was intended to be insulting, or at least to imply a lack of true patriotism.

From the 17th century, ultramontanism became closely associated with the Jesuits, who defended the superiority of Popes over councils and kings, even in temporal questions.

In the 18th century the word passed to Germany (Josephinism and Febronianism), where it acquired a much wider significance, being applicable to all the conflicts between Church and State, the supporters of the Church being called Ultramontanes. In Great Britain and Ireland, it was a reaction to Cisalpinism, the stance of moderate lay Catholics who sought to make patriotic concessions to the Protestant state to achieve Catholic emancipation.

The word ultramontanism was revived in the context of the French Third Republic as a general insulting term for policies advocating the involvement of the Roman Catholic Church in the policies of the French government, in opposition to laïcité.

In the above cases, the ultramontanist movement acted as a counterbalance to growing power of the state in Europe. Roman Catholic apologists argued that if the Pope has ultimate authority in the Church, then national churches would be more immune to interference from their governments.
Within the Roman Catholic Church, Ultramontanism achieved victory over conciliarism at the First Vatican Council with the pronouncement of papal infallibility (the ability of the pope to define dogmas free from error ex cathedra) and of papal supremacy, i.e., supreme, full, immediate, and universal ordinary jurisdiction of the Pope. Other Christian groups outside the Catholic Church declared this as the triumph of what they termed "the heresy of Ultramontanism." It was specifically decried in the Declaration of the Catholic Congress at Munich, in the Theses of Bonn, and in the Declaration of Utrecht, which became the foundational documents of Old Catholics (Altkatholische) who split with Rome over the declaration on infallibility and supremacy, joining the Old Episcopal Order Catholic See of Utrecht, which had been independent from Rome since 1723.

Italian unification under the leadership of Giuseppe Mazzini and Giuseppe Garibaldi dissolved the political entity of the Papal States in 1870. Thus, as a result of the 1929 Lateran Treaty which established a Concordat between the Holy See and the nation of Italy, the secular power of the Bishop of Rome, i.e., the Pope, was reduced to the one square mile of Vatican City, the smallest sovereign nation on earth. Prior to the demise of the Papal States, the First Vatican Council had been convened by Pope Pius IX.

After Italian Unification and the abrupt (and unofficial) end of the First Vatican Council in 1870 because of the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian War, the Ultramontanist movement and the opposing Conciliarism became obsolete to a large extent. However, some very extreme tendencies of a minority of adherents to Ultramontanism—especially those attributing to the Roman Pontiff, even in his private opinions, absolute infallibility even in matters beyond faith and morals, and impeccability—survived and were eagerly used by opponents of the Catholic Church and papacy before the Second Vatican Council (1962–1965) for use in their propaganda. These extreme tendencies, however, were never supported by the First Vatican Council's dogma of 1870 of papal infallibility and primacy, but are rather inspired by erroneous private opinions of some Roman Catholic laymen who tend to identify themselves completely with the Holy See.

[Note this wiki article has a SERIOUS gap insofar as leaving out the conflict between Rome and Protestant Germany. ]

http://continuingcounterreformation.blogspot.com/2011/06/cardinal-wisemanthe-decisive-battle.html

http://continuingcounterreformation.blogspot.com/2009/07/wlodimir-ledochowski-kulturkampf_17.html

At the Second Vatican Council (1962–1965) the debate on papal primacy and authority re-emerged,[citation needed] and in the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church Lumen Gentium, the Roman Catholic Church's teaching on the authority of the Pope, bishops and councils was further elaborated. The post-conciliar position of the Apostolic See did not deny any of the previous dogmas of papal infallibility or papal primacy; rather, it shifted emphasis from structural and organizational authority to doctrinal teaching authority (also known as the Magisterium). Papal Magisterium, i.e., Papal teaching authority, was defined in Lumen Gentium #25 and later codified in the 1983 revision of Canon Law.

Controversy

Some[who?] may claim the Catholic Social Teaching (see Distributism) of subsidiarity contradicts Ultramontanism and accuse it of decentralizing the Roman Catholic Church, whereas others[who?] defend it as merely a bureaucratic adjustment to give more pastoral responsibility to local bishops and priests of local parishes. However, subsidiarity involves the distribution of authority in structures outside of the Church's clergy and thus does not contradict Ultramontanism.
Challenges to Ultramontanism have remained strong within and outside of Roman jurisdiction[citation needed]. Ultramontanism has particularly overshadowed ecumenical work between the Roman Catholic Church and both Lutherans and Anglicans[citation needed]. The joint Anglican-Roman Catholic International Consultation published The Gift of Authority (see external links below) in 1998 and highlights agreements and differences on these issues.

Position of other Apostolic Churches

Ultramontanism is not recognised by either the Eastern Orthodox communion, the Oriental Orthodox communion, or the Church of the East, which view it as an innovation unsupported by Scripture and Tradition. These Churches regard the Pope as having been primus inter pares when the two churches were in communion, and do not recognize the doctrines of infallibility or the Pope's alleged universal jurisdiction over patriarchates and autocephalous Churches other than that of Rome, except insofar as this is part of the concept of primus inter pares[citation needed]

What A Circus 3


The supposedly anti Rome 'The UnHived Mind' favoring the Eastern Roman Empire over Germany
& Paul Craig Roberts frequent writer for Alex Jones InfoWars favoring Vladimir Putin over the West!
http://control-avles-blogs.blogspot.com/2014/10/putins-boot-la-parisienne.html
Quoted by 'Avles':
Note: I am thinking to the recent negative talking about Germany by Craig Oxley of The Unhived Mind forum, on which he continually brainwashed about the DVD Germany intelligence as "over the CIA and NSA". I firmly believe The Unhived Mind & Craig Oxley deeply involved in this Roman Catholic operation in to present Germany as "bad guy", a psycho-ideological brainwash aimed to the next definitive Catholicization of Germany:

ITALIAN NEWSPAPERS ATTACK ANGELA MERKEL WITH VULGAR FRONT PAGES
Two Italian newspapers attacking Angela Merkel

http://www.express.co.uk/posts/view/329734/Italian-newspapers-attack-Angela-Merkel-with-vulgar-front-pages

TWO Italian newspapers reacted to the EU bailout deal today with two brash and vulgar front pages which target German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The apparent withdrawal by the austerity-conscious German Chancellor allowing the Italian and Spanish direct access to Eurozone funds without incurring government debt has been met with delight in Italy.

One newspaper the Libero showed Mario Balotelli kicking a football with Angela Merkel’s face on it symbolising Italy’s victory over Germany in not only the EU but also Euro 2012.
The Libero ran the image alongside the headline “VaffanMerkel” which translates to “F*** Off Merkel.”

One newspaper showed a ball with Angela Merkel’s head on it being kicked by Mario Balotelli
[NOTE - it is Craig Oxley that smears Angela Merkel as 'Nazi' and not Avles nor myself.]

Apotheosis of Putin
Since Putin's tirade against the USA 3 days ago, the Eurasianist lackeys have been working extra time to polish his image. Paul Craig Roberts, an american economist, a Georgetown teaching professor with fatalistic views on the West, and an increasingly vocal supporter of Putin and his feudal caste, is here going about the tasks set by his masters, the jesuits.

Vladimir Putin Is The Leader Of the Moral World — Paul Craig Roberts

Paul Craig Roberts

Dear Friends,

Vladimir Putin’s remarks at the 11th meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club are worth more than a link in my latest column. These are the remarks of a humanitarian political leader, the like of which the world has not seen in my lifetime. Compare Putin to the corrupt war criminal in the White House or to his puppets in office in Germany, UK, France, Japan, Canada, Australia, and you will see the difference between a criminal clique and a leader striving for a humane and livable world in which the interests of all peoples are respected.....

In a sane Western society, Putin’s statements would have been reproduced in full and discussions organized with remarks from experts such as [added link] Stephen F. Cohen. Choruses of approval would have been heard on television and read in the print media. But, of course, nothing like this is possible in a country whose rulers claim that it is the “exceptional” and “indispensable” country with an extra-legal right to hegemony over the world. As far as Washington and its prostitute media, named “presstitutes” by the trends specialist Gerald Celente, are concerned, no country counts except Washington. “You are with us or against us,” which means “you are our vassals or our enemies.” This means that Washington has declared Russia, China, India, Brazil and other parts of South America, Iran, and South Africa to be enemies.

This is a big chunk of the world for a bankrupt country, hated by its vassal populations and many of its own subjects, that has not won a war since it defeated tiny Japan in 1945 by using nuclear weapons, the only use of such terrible weapons in world history.

As an American, try to image any known American politician, or for that matter any professor at Harvard, Princeton, Yale, or Stanford capable of giving an address to an educated discussion group of the quality of Putin’s remarks. Try to find any American politician capable of responding precisely and directly to questions instead of employing evasion.

No one can read Putin’s remarks without concluding that Putin is the leader of the world.
 Hah!

Putin's Cancer Clock 2014-2017?




Vladimir Putin may be suffering from cancer of the spine or pancreas, if some news outlets possess accurate information.

Despite the Russian president’s macho image as an outdoorsman and martial artist, rumors of this nature have circulated before in several elements of the overseas media over the last few years.

The latest health rumor has surfaced in the Page Six celebrity gossip section of the New York Post, which claims that the illness may explain Putin’s rush to invade Ukraine as well as changes in his physical appearance.

With regard to Ukraine, The Inquisitr previously reported that Putin allegedly tried to hatch a plan back in 2008 to invade Ukraine and divide the country with Poland, according to a top Polish government official. There is also growing concern in the Baltic region that Russia could eventually invade other neighboring countries with ethnically Russian populations, as it did in Ukraine.

This week, Putin leveled criticism at U.S. foreign policy for in his view putting the world at risk and endangering global security. According to the Washington Times, however, President Obama’s weak response as perceived by national security experts to Russia’s aggressiveness has emboldened Putin to push the envelope: “Russian military provocations have increased so much over the seven months since Moscow annexed Crimea from Ukraine that Washington and its allies are scrambling defense assets on a nearly daily basis in response to air, sea and land incursions by Vladimir Putin’s forces. Not only is Moscow continuing to foment unrest in Eastern Ukraine, U.S. officials and regional security experts say Russian fighter jets are testing U.S. reaction times over Alaska and Japan’s ability to scramble planes over its northern islands — all while haunting Sweden’s navy and antagonizing Estonia’s tiny national security force.”

With regard to Russia’s aforementioned expansionist ambitions, Page Six scribe Richard Johnson noted, “Others say Putin has three years to live and wants to leave a legacy of expanding the Russian borders just like Peter the Great or Stalin.

Specifically about the Putin cancer rumors, Johnson claimed that…
“News outlets from Belarus to Poland have reported for months that the Russian strongman has cancer of the spinal cord. But my sources say it’s pancreatic cancer, one of the most lethal forms of the disease. Putin is allegedly being treated by an elderly doctor from the old East Germany whom Putin met decades ago while serving in Dresden for the KGB. The doctor has been trying various treatments including steroid shots, which would explain Putin’s puffy appearance…”
Writing earlier this year for the U.K. website The Week, intelligence analyst and British military vet Crispin Black asserted that given the Russian leader’s influence on the world stage, the status of Putin’s health is important both domestically and internationally.
“President Putin is seriously ill, according to a number of seasoned observers of the Russian scene. Some of them suggest that he is suffering from cancer, perhaps even one of the most feared forms of the disease — cancer of the spinal cord, which might explain his periodically bad back…
What happens to Putin is important to us all even though his fervent nationalism and strong preference for ‘traditional’ (his word) sexuality have upset Western elite opinion…
Like many Russian leaders before him, Putin’s rule, although obeying the forms of the (elastic) Russian constitution, is basically personal. He is Tsar in all but name, and like the Romanovs, has appropriated a large chunk of Russia’s wealth to himself. Unlike the Romanovs, he has no obvious heir. If he becomes seriously ill in office, any succession struggle will be made doubly bitter by the extreme wealth as well as political power up for grabs.”
Black also observed that around Christmas time last year, Putin uncharacteristically freed one of his foes from after 10 years because the man’s mother had a terminal cancer diagnosis. “Some have suggested [Putin] is clearing his conscience.”

Do you think that there is any basis for the Vladimir Putin cancer rumors?

Putin 2008 Offer to Split Ukraine With Poland?!

This quoted article makes no mention of just what border was suggested by Putin.





http://news.yahoo.com/putin-offered-divide-ukraine-poland-polish-ex-minister-210859509.html

WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland's parliamentary speaker, Radoslaw Sikorski, has been quoted as saying that Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed to Poland's then leader in 2008 that they divide Ukraine between themselves.
Sikorski, who until September served as Poland's foreign minister, was quoted telling U.S. website Politico that Putin made the proposal during Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk's visit to Moscow in 2008 - although he later said some of the interview had been "overinterpreted".

"He wanted us to become participants in this partition of Ukraine ... This was one of the first things that Putin said to my prime minister, Donald Tusk, when he visited Moscow," he was quoted as saying in the interview dated Oct. 19. 

"He (Putin) went on to say Ukraine is an artificial country and that Lwow is a Polish city and why don't we just sort it out together," Sikorski was quoted as saying.

Before World War Two, Poland's territory included parts of today's western Ukraine, including some major cities such as Lwow, known as Lviv in Ukraine. 

Sikorski, who accompanied Tusk on his trip to Moscow, was quoted as saying Tusk did not reply to Putin's suggestion, because he knew he was being recorded, but Poland never expressed any interest in joining the Russian operation.

"We made it very, very clear to them - we wanted nothing to do with this," Sikorski was quoted as saying.

After publication of the interview, Sikorski said it was not entirely accurate.

"Some of the words have been overinterpreted," Sikorski wrote on his Twitter account late on Monday, adding that Poland does not take part in annexations. 

The interview could further aggravate tension between Poland and Russia, already at odds over the Ukrainian crisis and Poland's arrest of two men suspected of spying for Moscow. 

Neither Poland's Foreign Ministry nor Russian officials were immediately available to comment.
"If such a proposal was made by Putin then that's scandalous," Ewa Kopacz, who replaced Tusk as prime minister after his departure for a top job in Brussels, said late on Monday in an interview with public broadcaster TVP.

"No Polish prime minister will participate in such a disgraceful activity like partitioning another country", she said, adding she had not heard about such a proposal before.
Sikorski's account is not the first suggestion that Russia was seeking Poland's support in partitioning Ukraine. 

Following the annexation of Crimea, Russian parliamentary speaker Vladimir Zhirinovsky sent a letter to the governments of Poland, Romania and Hungary, proposing a joint division of the country.

Vatican Bank Claims Holocaust Litigation - October 16, 2014









Vatican Bank Holocaust Litigation
brim letter small.jpg
+1 202-318-2406

For Immediate Release October 16, 2014
Pope Paul VI Beatification Overshadowed by Involvement in Nazi Ratline
Rome: On October 19, 2014, Paul VI (Monsignor Montini) in a solemn ceremony at the Vatican is to be beatified which is the first step to sainthood  A miracle, the curing of an unborn baby’s illness, has been attributed to Paul VI.  However, Holocaust Victims and their families from Eastern Europe who are locked in a decade’s long legal dispute with the Vatican over looted assets from the Second World War, question the saintliness of the man who as Vatican Secretary of State supervised the infamous Vatican ratline funded with Holocaust era loot.
The Vatican Ratline was a post war system of escape routes for Nazis fleeing Europe at the end of the Second World War.  The Vatican version was centered at the Croatian Confraternity of Saint Jerome located in Rome at Via Tomacelli 132 just a block away from the Tiber River bridge and next to the sprawling Tomb of Augustus. 
San Girolamo.jpg
The so called “Golden Priest” Fr. Krunoslav Draganovic, the Apostolic Vistator for Croatian matters, was the chief conductor of the Vatican ratline whose beneficiaries included major war criminals like Croatian mass murderer Ante Pavelic who escaped to Argentina in 1947 despite being responsible for the deaths of 500,000 Serbs, Jews, and Roma. Other ratline escapees included the Nazi war criminals Klaus Barbie, Josef Mengele and Adolf Eichman.
The funds that ran the Vatican ratline were obtained from the treasuries of defeated Axis allies like Croatia, Hungary, and Romania and often contained victim loot transformed into Church property through a complex scheme involving deposits at the Vatican Bank.  Since 1998, the Holocaust victims have been seeking an accounting from the Vatican which has so far successfully resisted on grounds of sovereign immunity a long running lawsuit in the United States, a more recent EU Commission inquiry and direct claims lodged with the Vatican Secretariat for the Economy.
Declassified documents obtained by Holocaust Victims’ attorneys link Paul VI, then Vatican Secretary of State, to Draganovic and Pavelic. Former US Special Agent, William Gowen, who investigated the Vatican ratline in Rome 1946-1947, testified that Draganovic was supervised by Montini and that Draganovic boasted of a clandestine ten truck convoy of looted gold and valuables that pulled into St. Peter’s Square in 1946 right under the nose of the Allied authorities. The Holocaust Victim group is seeking an accounting and restitution of the looted assets used to fund the ratline. 
The Holocaust Victims’ lawyers have now released the transcripts of the entire Gowen deposition in hopes of bringing attention to the case. According to lead counsel, Dr. Jonathan Levy: “The real miracle is how the Vatican made countless millions in victim loot and major Nazi war criminals disappear with apparent impunity.  The Vatican must open its archives once for all.”
William Gowen who as a young Army CIC Special Agent fluent in Italian infiltrated the ratline and almost captured Pavelic at San Girolamo in 1947, endured four days of cross examination by Vatican attorneys in 2005 and 2006 and never wavered from his position.  The deposition in its entirety is now available.

Jesuit Left Example of Race As Distraction To Support Oppression of People at Large



Randy Lanier- race car driver owed $30 million  from government for prosecution- wrongful imprisonment for violating JUNK STATUTES against Cannabis, just released after serving 26 years for non-crime

"Emmagee Mindy Oaktown" - argues against civil rights relief for Randy Lanier because he is White, associated with a 'Palestine Support Group in Ireland' - fits classic profile of the Jesuit Left's use of race as a distraction-excuse to ignore the economic exploitation of ALL people
(note- orientation of photo is how it appears- I did not flip it)


A conversation on Facebook with someone going under the handle of "Emmagee Mindy Oaktown" concerning the government's unjust persecution via prosecution of a race car driver for the non crime of violating Cannabis prohibition who just had his 8th amendment violation life term reduced to the 26 years in prison already served.


This is a classic example of how the Jesuit Left uses race as a distraction from the multitude of injustices perpetrated in the name of the criminal, immoral and unconstitutional 'war on drugs' - note my comment about ALL people -- that we should deny justice to people because they are White!

https://www.facebook.com/mrs.suzannecook/posts/10203868888816919?comment_id=10203869383229279&offset=0&total_comments=17

  • Douglas Andrew Willinger This man is entitled to a multimillion dollar civil rights restitution for this criminal and immoral prosecution- the man committed NO act deserving such a prosecution- rather it is those in the government that are the true criminals.

    Emmagee Mindy Oaktown (friends with Suzanne Gordon Cook) also commented on Suzanne Gordon Cook's link.
    Emmagee wrote: "no...he is not....there are people who have been wrongly set up and wrongly convicted of crimes WHO ARE STILL sitting in prison...MUMIA ABU JAMAL AND LEONARD PELTIER...who deserve being freed and paid for all the persecution and time stolen by the state."

  • Douglas Andrew Willinger The denial of people's basic human rights on account of race and sex is a classic left wing useful idiot move- you would deny him his rights for being a male and being white- that is as bad as those you decry.  The drug war is clearly the biggest violators of peoples' rights, and the left's tunnel vision serves as a tool of the elitist neo-feudalists who would deny this so they can continue to make billion in everything from pharma profits to private prisons for profit. This thread is about a race car MJ merchant who committed no real crime, yet you are interjecting other cases not to say that those ALSO matter, but that that drug war victims do NOT matter, particularly if they are white. you are being a racist useful idiot for the power elite.

     This comes one month after my encounter with another 'Ireland-Palestine' type:


    The targets of injustice are always non-whites?

    What a disgusting slap in the face of the countless victims of the drug war asides from the many Blacks who are disproportionately targeted.

    Let alone the millions upon millions of victims of the continuing counter reformation in Europe.

    Ian Paisley was right.
