The Pope: “a poor church for the poor”

The Pope: “a poor church for the poor”

by Jon Rappoport

September 25, 2015

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, The Matrix Revealed, click here.)

In his first statement to the press after his election as Pope, Francis said: “This is what I want, a poor church for the poor.”

And a jet and an entourage and massive security, as he wings his way to bring that message of poverty to the masses.

I wonder how the message would be received in America’s inner cities.

The Pope’s recipe for change, if there is to be any change at all, seems to fall under the category of “income redistribution.”

Apparently, carbon taxes and cap and trade would fit the redistribution agenda.

Forget the fact that a carbon monarchy would drastically reduce available energy in the Third World. But don’t worry, poverty is good. Embrace it.

The Pope is headlining a big show in the US because he and Obama are on the same page. They both want to excoriate capitalism, while conveniently avoiding the subject of Globalist trade treaties, which are designed to expand poverty and destroy millions of jobs.

Since the Pope is willing to mention specifics, such as the horrors of air conditioning, he should be willing to address GATT, the WTO, NAFTA, CAFTA, and the TPP: the treaties by which elite Globalists wreak havoc. Until he does discuss them, and at length, his statements about poverty deserve no more attention than any politician’s.

As for his stance on immigration and the US southern border, his sympathy for destitute Catholic refugees making their way into America dovetails nicely with the goal of expanding the flock, which has been declining in this country.

If the Pope wants a poor Church, I have a suggestion. Bring in an army of expert appraisers and have them pore over every rare book, every scripture, scroll, artifact, piece of furniture, painting, sculpture, jewel, gold coin—every possession of the Vatican, including its lands and buildings—in order to see what price the whole collection might bring at the largest auction ever held on the planet.

Then sell it all. Take the cash and feed and house the poor.

At that point, I would start to take this man in the robe and the big hat seriously.

Also, I’m sure that with a little digging, I could find the names of some competent private investigation agencies and forward their names to His Holiness. He could task them with locating and hunting down every pedophile priest on or off the Church books and turning them over for secular prosecution.

That would clear up a few things, too.

Religion. Why do people who believe in God need it?

    yeah. people are strange. religion means lack of faith.

  2. SamAdamsGhost says:

    I was born & raised Catholic. Was even an altar boy (helps the priest during the ceremony of the Mass).

    Forget about bringing up facts to the devout. They don’t know that Pope ‘infallibility’ isn’t an ancient tradition. It only dates from 1869 and was pushed by the then current pontiff to squash dissent. They know nothing about the scope of the dealings of the Vatican Bank. They don’t see the disconnect between the constant appeals to donate more to the ‘poor’ local parish, and the secret Vatican financial empire.
    I have brought up numerous historical facts about the Church and the devout always give a blank confused look in reply. Faith that is blind, isn’t a virtue.

    Large organized religion has brought much sorrow to humanity.

    What is concerning me is some people whom I have known to dislike the pope are falling for his message now. My brother, a previously pope disliker just text to me how the pope comes from the same monks as francis of assasis or however spelled and told me how this pope is following him regarding his outlook on poverty, and he thinks the pope is going after the big guys running and ruining this world..I don’t see it that way, but I find it disheartening my brother is beginning to view the pope hopefully…unbelievable how double talk is effecting people in popes favor

    • Deanna Clark says:

      This Pope named himself after Francis Xavier, the Jesuit missionary to the far east who was a disciple of the founder, Ignatius Loyola.
      Francis of Assisi was a layman, never a priest. The closest historical comparison to the early Franciscan movement, which included many lay people, is the Methodist revival of the early 1700s.
      I could go on, but you can straighten out your brother on this.
      Most American Catholics are into the prep schools and drinking parties and going to Mass…a few pray seriously and some even know history.
      But it’s very hard to change your whole lifestyle and habits over scandals…it involves kids and parents and banks and schools and “charities” and besides, Catholics aren’t the only ones taking part in all those things.
      Even the holier than thou Orthodox and agnostics and atheists and Baptists are all tied up in every single weakness of the Catholic church….because it is so gargantuan and global.
      Ain’t nobody clean these days…
      Many people spotted this Pope right off as a salesman…the phony grin, the glib lines. Now it’s obvious what he’s selling….

  4. natesse316 says:

    “Religion. Why do people who believe in God need it?” Can’t get more poignant than that, Jon. My Lord Jesus Christ had no where to lay His head, no place to call His own. This world was not His home, and it isn’t mine, either. The Pope is no Christian, and I if didn’t simply believe in God, but also actually KNOW Him, I would have given up long ago.

  5. swo8 says:

    At least the Pontif is speeking out about some very important issues and they do seem to be listening.
    Did you hear what that jerk from VW is getting for his settlement. That’s down right obscene.
    I guess crime still pays.
    Leslie

    • SamAdamsGhost says:

      The theft and suffering that will be caused by the ‘man made global warming’/global carbon credit/new global authority scam – makes the VW thing look like a grain of sand in comparison. That’s the agenda that the Jesuit pope is providing p.r. for. This is a great evil that will cost many lives & further enslave humanity.

      Will the billion + ‘devout’ have the courage to look into this for themselves ? See what is true and false ?

      Probably not.

      • swo8 says:

        Well I certainly don’t think that we should be paying any carbon tax. We’ll be looking into it.
        Leslie

        • SamAdamsGhost says:

          Thank you Leslie. If people look into this for themselves and decide based on the reason & free will our Creator has granted us … maybe Humanity has a chance afterall.

          • swo8 says:

            We have more than a good chance, we are going to win this one.

          • You have summarised human ignorance.

            If your house is burning down (within all prized possessions doomed to perish), do you play “blame game” as to who/what was the culprit or do you take responsibility and try and put it out?

            The carbon tax is directed (or misdirected, knowing the politicos) to reducing carbon emissions because the elites know when the balance is “tipped” we’re all f*cked. Or, rather, they’re not entirely out of it. Remember all those purpose built underground bases? Now you know why.

            You sleep in the “bed” and waffle about global warming as though you know what’s “going on”.

  6. From Québec says:

    This Pope is a complete joke!

  7. Kat says:

    I was raised strictly Catholic also, and now cannot tolerate any organized religion–all human inventions powered by power and money-hungry egos. How many popes were known outright criminals, some re-writing scripture according to their whim? The only “infallible” being is God. And I agree with Jon’s suggestions wholeheartedly–let’s all go have an estate sale at the Vatican, and rout these evil, greedy, entitled slimeballs. Kat (66 yrs. old and angry)

    • PJM121212 says:

      Excellent, Kat — I’m 72 and heartsick and angry, too. It’s a bitch waking up. Still, I am gaining hope as more and more wake up. Gear up and git ‘r done,.

  8. Elsa says:

    I heard that the Pope lost his temper during a trip to Bolivia during which he was to address “global warming”. Apparently, the Bolivian president gave a speech during which he slammed the bankers whom the Pope obviously supports. When the ceremonial Bolivian hat was handed to the Pope, he threw it to the ground. This was televised there but was never shown on our screens.

    • Great post, Jon.

      Bolivia is an interesting country.

      Israeli “dissident”, Roy Tov, has ended up “trapped” there. I have always wondered why. Then there are those compelling myths about Hitler. Did he spend his last days there protected by Mossad?

      Morales comes across as a typical “point man” to me. Where was he “trained”?

    • SamAdamsGhost says:

      Elsa, I’ve gotta say that the story doesn’t sound credible to me. At these levels, the political & international figures tend to be very cool headed. They tend to pay close attention to their image projected by the media.

      But I will check into it for myself. Thanks.

      • Elsa says:

        I heard this story related by James McCanney on his weekly radio show and he claimed he witnessed this on a foreign channel (Spanish speaking), presumably Bolivian. I imagine the Pope’s image is protected by the media hence the lack of coverage.

  9. BDBinc says:

    The Pope is a fraud.

    20. Britain is owned by the Vatican. (Treaty of 1213)

    21. The Pope can abolish any law in the United States (Elements of Ecclesiastical Law Vol. 1, 53-54)

    22. A 1040 Form is for tribute paid to Britain (IRS Publication 6209)

    23. The Pope claims to own the entire planet through the laws of conquest and discovery. (Papal Bulls of 1495 & 1493)

    24. The Pope has ordered the genocide and enslavement of millions of people.(Papal Bulls of 1455 & 1493)

    25. The Pope’s laws are obligatory on everyone. (Bened. XIV., De Syn. Dioec, lib, ix, c. vii, n. 4. Prati, 1844 Syllabus Prop 28, 29, 44) [Note: As a natural living person, you are not bound to any law made by man or corporation, unless you agree to specific obligations in a contract. For example, if you agree to be a United States Citizen, then you are bound to the corporate laws of the United States (a FOREIGN corporation). However, the United States Citizenship contract is a fraudulent contract, because it did not come with full disclosure. ~ PL]

    • arcadia11 says:

      that’s why it’s called papal bull.
      they do so like their little jokes.

    • Theodore says:

      Hi BDBinc,

      re: “However, the ‘United States Citizenship (FOREIGN corporation)’ contract is a fraudulent contract, because it did not come with full disclosure.”

      Just for clarification, what does the “did not come with full disclosure” actually look like?

      To back up a bit, I am assuming that certain US Federal Judges (side question: tribunal-based or jury trail-based or both?), backed up by certain so-called case law, would deem, for example, “applying for a social security card” (you know, in those days back when when you applied for one as a teenager or as an adult (now they are assigned at birth)) — which, by inherent design, means ONLY the recipient signing some “documents (under color of contract law)” and never a duly represented federal government agent ALSO signing, THAT THAT act then purportedly becomes the binding “United States Citizenship (FOREIGN corporation)” “CONTRACT” on the person.

      Could it be, ‘legally’ speaking (side question: under which ‘law system’?, under which ‘court system’?), that the facts of “the steps of the ‘ceremony’ that the ‘two parties’ went through” (as documented in the example above) constituted no more than a “voluntary non-binding arrangement” AND hence NOT “a binding contract” of any sort whatsoever, for three reasons?: (1) the written words on the paperwork do not adhear to centuries-old customs of “contract paperwork (between two parties)”, (2) the government agent did not sign and (3) there was no “signing ceremony” between the parties.

    • BDBinc

      Good comment. I was not aware of the 1213 Treaty.

  10. BDBinc says:

    People who just “believe” in God believe they need religion.
    People who “know” God do not need religion.

    (And in many cases its that flawed belief system in a text book and teachings written not by God but by some Jws that stops them from knowing.)

  11. stupefied ape says:

    Those occultists helped by the Socialists might approach their goal of imposing total misery (moral/material) on the whole planet.

    Don’t forget the Black Pope (another Spaniard), and the 2 retired popes still living, that is another Jesuit, a Dutch who left his job on 13 January 2008 celebrating his 8,888 days as Black Pope at a mass conducted by the now retired German Pope at the :

    “Sistine Chapel’s ancient altar set right against the wall under Michelangelo’s Last Judgment with his back turned on the congregation, re-introducing an old ritual that had not been used in decades… He also read his homily from an old wooden throne on the left of the altar used by Pius IX in the nineteenth century. The Pope baptized thirteen babies, carefully pouring water on their head from a golden shell.”

    Those are the words of the Associated Press.

    They thrive on misery: I visited Santiago de Compostela, Spain where the moronic Catholic feel proud of their “generosity” explaining that there were two monasteries which supplied free food to the poor pilgrims, that is they separated the sex and every other day, men ate at the same one monastery and women at the other.

    I want to finish on Nagasaki. Japanese as a sovereign people expelled the Jesuits in the seventeenth century from Nagasaki, the only place where foreigners were tolerated in Japan. It is very likely that the bomb on Nagasaki was pure revenge 300 years later. They explain to us that they choose Nagasaki because there was fog on Kokura, the alleged target. It is the Jesuit way of twisting all facts and the satanic habit of spinning constantly fairy tales.

  12. Michael Burns says:

    Pope Leo X (11 December 1475 – 1 December 1521), born Giovanni di Lorenzo de’ Medici, was Pope from 9 March 1513 to his death in 1521.
    The second son of Lorenzo the Magnificent, ruler of the Florentine Republic, he was elevated to the cardinalate in 1489.

    Big Popey Papa L said:

    “How well we know what a profitable superstition this fable of Christ has been for us and our predecessors.” 

    “Since God has given us the papacy, let us enjoy it.”

    ….to be a catholic is to be a Roman.
    And what is a Roman, but a dominator.

    The Roman Catholic Spanish Armada was defeated by the British navy led by Drake in 1588
    Whatever laws were written in 1213 giving the Roman Catholic church all English Property were made null
    and void. In fact King Henry the VIII ceased all Roman Catholic property turning the monasteries of Cambridge into Colleges.

    If you invest $1 a year for 900 years at 5% interest per year compounded once per year, guess what you get?

    $258,697,268,857,030,150,000.00

    That’s 259 thousand trillion! On $900 principle!!!!

    Entering 1600 (or even 1000) years (Catholic Church) broke the compound interest calculator at moneychimp.com.

    Think the Catholic Church has invested more than $1 per year at only 5% for the past 1600 years?

    Anyone who thinks the Catholic Church is poor isn’t paying attention. It is basically impossible.
