The FBI, J. Edgar Hoover and the Catholic Church

The CIA has been so obviously dominated by Catholics that it’s even been called “Catholics in Action” by some. This subject was also brought up in a recent Catholic newspaper article pondering “why Catholics thrive in the CIA”:

The CIA is the best known of the 17 agencies that comprise the American intelligence community. It has earned itself nicknames like “Catholic Intelligence Agency” and “Catholics In Action”. It’s worth exploring why.

No official statistics exist on Catholics in the CIA or any other American intelligence agency. But one interesting clue is the relatively high number of Catholics who have served as director of the agency… three out of the last five CIA directors have been Catholic: Michael Hayden, Leon Panetta, and the current director, John Brennan. Looking back, a number of Catholics led the agency in critical periods during the Cold War. (There were no Catholic directors in the 1990s.)

Some of the most influential directors in CIA history have been Catholic – men such as Walter Bedell Smith, John McCone, William Colby and William Casey. They were not just casual Catholics. They were devout Mass-goers – in many cases, members of groups like the Knights of Malta. The conspiracy theorists usually start there, with nefarious plots about the Vatican steering world affairs. Of course, they never ask why an all-powerful Vatican can’t engineer more Catholic presidents.

Martin A. Lee’s article from 1983 on the CIA, the Vatican, and the Knights of Malta:

The FBI, on the other hand, hasn’t been dominated by Catholics, at least not overtly. James Comey (head of the FBI 2013-2017), is from an Irish Roman Catholic family, and Louis Freeh (head of the FBI 1993-2001) is a devout Roman Catholic:

Freeh is a devout Roman Catholic. Contrary to rumors, he is not a member of the Opus Dei prelature. According to The Bureau and the Mole, a book by David A. Vise, one of Freeh’s sons was enrolled at The Heights School in Potomac, Maryland, which Vise describes as “an Opus Dei academy”. Several of his sons graduated from Archmere Academy, a Catholic school in Claymont, Delaware. One of his sons attended Georgetown University, a Catholic university in Washington, D.C.

Other than that, most of the Directors of the FBI have apparently been non-Catholic white men. But the very famous J. Edgar Hoover, the Director from 1924 up until his death in 1972, though nominally a protestant, was on extremely good terms with the Catholic Church, as we learn from Steve Rosswurm’s book The FBI and the Catholic Church, 1935-1962. From the book’s description:

During his long tenure as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, J. Edgar Hoover made no secret of his high regard for the Catholic faith. Though himself a Protestant, he shared with Catholicism a set of values and a vision of the world, grounded in certain assumptions about the way things ought to be in a well-ordered society. The Church reciprocated Hoover’s admiration, establishing the basis for a working alliance between two powerful and influential American institutions.

And from the introduction:

There “is no group,” the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s Catholic Review argued in 1942, that held J. Edgar Hoover (1895–1972), director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, in “higher esteem” than U.S. Catholics. Six years later, Novena Notes, the publication of the enormously popular Our Sorrowful Mother devotion, noted that Hoover was so respected by Catholics that he might as well have been a “Catholic priest or bishop.” In 1952 Anne Tansey, in Our Catholic Messenger, wrote that it was quite understandable that many believed Hoover was a Catholic.

We learn more from a review of the book:

During the FBI’s early years, Hoover focused his recruiting efforts on white Protestant males from the small towns of the Midwest and the South. But beginning in the 1940s, he expanded his efforts to Catholic colleges and universities in the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond. He met a positive reception. Fordham University President Robert I. Gannon, S.J., commented that “the FBI and Fordham have the same ideas.” Like the FBI, the Jesuits, known as “the Pope’s Marines,” believed in forming disciplined men dedicated to preserving the moral order. The University of Notre Dame, according to its president (and future cardinal) John F. O’Hara, C.S.C., was a “man’s school” that promoted “Red-blooded Americanism.” Both schools would provide a large number of FBI personnel through the years.

Hoover considered the Catholic Church “the greatest protective influence in our nation today.” For both the Protestant director and his Catholic associates, Rosswurm notes, “Secularism… was the key to understanding all of America’s problems.” Hoover gave due attention to Catholic leaders, who reciprocated in kind. Although he did not cultivate close personal private relationships with any particular bishop (with the possible exception of Baltimore’s Archbishop Michael J. Curley), he cultivated a close association with them in regard to their shared public concerns.

On the other side, the admiration occasionally devolved into hero worship. In 1953, for example, Archbishop Richard J. Cushing of Boston equated Hoover with quoting the pope. Catholic periodicals contributed to the cult of personality surrounding Hoover. Our Sunday Visitor, one of the most conservative American Catholic periodicals, regularly reprinted his speeches, as did The Brooklyn Tablet. In time, some Catholic spokespersons would equate anti-FBI sentiments or expressions with anti-Catholicism. In other words, if Hoover wasn’t actually Catholic, he should have been.

Jesuits and communism

One obvious reason for that was that these Catholics perceived Hoover as some kind of a great warrior against communism. Yet, as we’ll see, he was associated with the Jesuits, and honored by them, and Jesuits have covertly promulgated communism for a long time. They even implemented communism in the Jesuit reductions of South America from the 16th to 18th century, in a way realizing the Catholic saint Thomas More’s visions laid out in his book Utopia (1516).

The economic basis was a sort of communism, which, however differed materially from the modern system which bears the same name, and was essentially theocratic. “The Jesuits”, writes Gelpi y Ferro, “realized in their Christian commonwealth all that is good and nothing that is bad in the plans of modern Socialists and Communists.” The land and all that stood upon it was the property of the community. The land was apportioned among the caciques, who allotted it to the families under them. Agricultural instruments and draught-cattle were loaned from the common supply. No one was permitted to sell his plot of land or his house, called abamba, i.e. “own possession.”

J. Edgar Hoover – a great friend of the Jesuits

In addition to his law degrees from the George Washington University, Hoover received many honorary degrees, including from: the George Washington University; Pennsylvania Military College; New York University; Kalamazoo College; Westminster College; Oklahoma Baptist University; Georgetown University; Drake University; University of the South; University of Notre Dame; St. John’s University Law School; Rutgers University; University of Arkansas; Holy Cross College; Seton Hall College; Marquette University; Pace College; Morris Harvey College; and the Catholic University of America.

http://www.jedgarhooverfoundation.org/hoover-bio.asp

The seven bolded ones are Catholic universities, three of them Jesuit universities, including Georgetown University – the oldest Catholic University in America, located in Washington, D.C.

Georgetown University is the Jesuit power base in America from where the order is heavily influencing government policies. The Patriot Act, for example, was authored by Viet Dinh, a Georgetown University professor of law. And as I’ve pointed out before, Homeland Security, a realization of the police state legislation, was quite obviously a Jesuit creation.

What’s more, the Jesuit Loyola University Chicago gave Hoover the prestigious Sword of Loyola award:

The Sword of Loyola is given to an individual who exhibits exceptional dedication and humanitarian service in fields other than medicine. The Sword of Loyola award was conceived by Loyola alumnus Norton F. O’Meara in 1964, and is awarded each year at the Annual Awards Dinner held by the Stritch School of Medicine. The first recipient of the award was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, J. Edgar Hoover (1964). Throughout the years recipients of this prestigious award have included Muppets creator Jim Henson (1982), Loyola alumnus Bob Newhart (1975), director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra Arthur Fielder (1976), and Joseph Cardinal Bernadin, Archbishop of Chicago (1989). The sword is a replica of St. Ignatius Loyola’s sword, which the founder of the Society of Jesus offered as a symbol of becoming a spiritual soldier of Christ. The sword symbolizes the distinctive spiritual qualities associated with St. Ignatius of Loyola – courage, dedication, and service.

Freemason Hoover and the Jesuit connection to Freemasonry

It’s widely known that Hoover was a 33rd degree Freemason.

So was J. Edgar Hoover a Freemason?

He most certainly was, and all of his Masonic affiliations were in Washington, D.C.  Brother J. Edgar Hoover was a member of Federal Lodge No. 1, Washington D.C.  He was a charter member of Justice Lodge No. 46 in Washington, D.C.  He was both a York Rite Mason, and a 33rd Degree Scottish Rite Mason.  He was also a Shriner–a member of Almas Shrine.

http://www.midnightfreemasons.org/2016/07/j-edgar-hoover-freemason-or-not.html

What’s the connection between the Jesuits and Freemasonry:

In the eighteenth century the Jesuits were charged with having an intimate connection with Freemasonry, and the invention of the Degree of Kadosh was even attributed to those members of the Society who constituted the College of Clermont. This theory of a Jesuitical Freemasonry seems to have originated with the Illuminati, who were probably governed in its promulgation by a desire to depreciate the character of all other Masonic systems in comparison with their own, where no such priestly interference was permitted. Barruel scoffs at the idea of such a connection, and cans it (Histoire de Jacobinisme iv, page 287) “la fable de la Franc-Maçonnerie Jésuitique” meaning an invention of false or Jesuitical Freemasonry. For once he is right. Like oil and water the tolerance of Freemasonry and the intolerance of the “Society of Jesus” cannot commingle. Yet it cannot be denied that, while the Jesuits have had no part in the construction of pure Freemasonry, there are reasons for believing that they took an interest in the invention of some Degrees and systems which were intended to advance their own interests. But wherever they touched the Institution they left the trail of the serpent.

They sought to convert its pure philanthropy and toleration into political intrigue and religious bigotry. Hence it is believed that they had something to do with the invention of those Degrees, which were intended to aid the exiled house of Stuart in its efforts to regain the English throne, because they believed that would secure the restoration in England of the Roman Catholic religion. Almost a library of books has been written on both sides of this subject in Germany and in France.

  • Albert G. Mackey, Encyclopedia of Freemasonry and Its Kindred Sciences

http://www.phoenixmasonry.org/mackeys_encyclopedia/j.htm

Chevalier de Bonneville formed a chapter of twenty-five Degrees of the so called High-Degrees in the College of Jesuits of Clermont, in Paris in 1754. The adherents of the House of Stuarts had made the college of Clermont their asylum, they being mostly Scotchmen. One of these Degrees being the ”Scottish Master”, new body organized in Charleston, S.C., in 1801, gave the name Scottish Rite to these Degrees, which name ever since that time has characterized the Rite all over the world. The name previously given to these Degrees was the ”Rite of Perfection”, or the Ancient and Accepted Rite; while some authorities have a different version, Mackey is usually the most reliable.

  • William O. Peterson, Masonic Quiz Book, 1949, p. 194-195

https://books.google.fi/books?id=kGKoKkyNNtAC&printsec=frontcover&hl=fi#v=onepage&q=clermont&f=false

The 32nd Degree of the Scottish Rite even use the Jesuit motto ad majorem Dei Gloriam:

Field blue; on it is a golden lion, holding in his mouth a key of gold, and a gold collar around his neck, with the figures 525 on the collar. Motto at the base, “Custos Areani,” and in some rituals, “Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam” – the latter is the motto of the Jesuits. Around this standard are stationed the Knights of the Sun, the Commanders of the Temple, and the Princes of Mercy, 28th, 27th, and 26th degrees. Standard Bearer, Aholiab.

 

The founder of the FBI – a great-nephew of Napoleon

What’s also very interesting, is that the founder of the FBI was none other than Charles Joseph Bonaparte, the grandson of Napoleon’s youngest brother. Bonaparte was a devout Roman Catholic, and a trustee of the Catholic University of America.

Both Supreme Court Justices nominated by Trump are Jesuit trained

Donald Trump has so far nominated two new Supreme Court Justices during his presidency, and both of them are Jesuit trained. The first nominee was Neil Gorsuch, who was raised as a Roman Catholic, but is now, at least nominally, Episcopalian:

Justice Neil Gorsuch is the first member of a mainline Protestant denomination to sit on the Supreme Court since the retirement of John Paul Stevens in 2010. He also has strong ties to the Roman Catholic Church. Neil and his two siblings, brother J.J. and sister Stephanie, were raised as Roman Catholics and attended weekly Mass. Neil Gorsuch later attended Georgetown Preparatory School, a Roman Catholic Jesuit school in North Bethesda, Maryland, from which he graduated in 1985. Gorsuch’s wife, Louise, is British-born; the two met while Neil was studying at Oxford. Louise was raised in the Church of EnglandThe two married at St. Nicholas’ Anglican Church in Henley-on-Thames.

When the couple returned to the United States they started attending Holy Comforter, an Episcopal parish in Vienna, Virginia, where he also volunteered as an usher. Church records indicate that the Gorsuches were members of Holy Comforter. He later attended attended St. John’s Episcopal Church in Boulder, Colorado, considered a liberal church because it kept an open-door policy for the LGBT community prior to legislation establishing gender preference equality laws. The Episcopal Church and the Church of England are both members of the Anglican Communion, which considers itself to be both Catholic and Protestant but rejects papal authority. After marrying in a non-Roman Catholic ceremony and joining an Episcopal church, Gorsuch has not publicly stated if he considers himself a Roman Catholic who is also a Protestant or simply a Protestant.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_Gorsuch#Religion

So, now “only” five, as opposed to six, of the nine Supreme Court Justices are Roman Catholic. That is, if you can really count Gorsuch as a protestant. Anyway, he graduated from the Jesuit Georgetown Preparatory School, and so did Trump’s second nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, who is a Roman Catholic like his predecessor Anthony Kennedy.

What’s more, they attended that same Jesuit school at the same time. Quite a coincidence, isn’t it? And, as it happens, the current Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell, also graduated from Georgetown Preparatory School, and later earned his J.D. from Georgetown University, the oldest Catholic University in America, and the Jesuit power base in the USA.

The four other Catholic Justices in the Supreme Court are:

Chief Justice John Roberts – Roberts has served as an adjunct faculty member at Georgetown University Law Center.

Clarence Thomas – Thomas graduated from the College of the Holy Cross, a Jesuit university in Worcester, Massachusetts. Earlier in life Thomas attended Catholic schools, and briefly also a Catholic seminary in Missouri.

Samuel Alito – Alito is a Knight of Columbus.

Sonia Sotomayor – Sotomayor has been an associate of Jesuit priest Joseph A. O’Hare, who was a long time president of Fordham University, and also a member of the New York based elite think tank Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

The Rev. Joseph O’Hare, a Jesuit priest and the retired president of Fordham University who served with Sotomayor on a New York City campaign finance review council, told Catholic News Service that he knew the high court nominee in the late 1980s. She was indeed a practicing Catholic, he said, adding that he has no reason to think that has changed.

https://www.au.org/church-state/julyaugust-2009-church-state/featured/who-is-sonia-sotomayor

The remaining three Justices are Jewish: Elena Kagan, Stephen Breyer, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose husband Martin D. Ginsburg was a professor at Georgetown University Law Center. So, yet another Jesuit connection.

Antonin Scalia, who was replaced by Gorsuch, was a devout Roman Catholic. He graduated from a Jesuit high school and later from Georgetown University with B.A. Scalia was allegedly a member of Opus Dei, the secretive Catholic organization. And according to Matthew Fox, a former member of the Dominican Order, Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas are both Opus Dei members, and possibly even Chief Justice John Roberts:

Yes, it’s widely known that Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito, and Clarence Thomas belong to Opus Dei—and that Justice Thomas Roberts may also be a member. Another Opus Dei member, former CIA director William Casey, gave millions of dollars to the Vatican and to the ultra-conservative Legionaries of Christ. Also, Daniel Ellsberg recently told me that some of the ranking commanders of our military are also Opus Dei. And what can we say about a whole new crop of right wing Catholic politicians such as Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum?

The Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) is an international Catholic organization that aids refugees, forcibly displaced peoples, and asylum seekers. JRS operates at national and regional levels. Founded in November 1980 as a work of the Society of Jesus, JRS was officially registered on 19 March 2000 in Vatican City as a foundation. The impetus to found JRS came from the then father general of the Jesuits, Pedro Arrupe, who was inspired to action by the plight of Vietnamese boat people.[2] JRS’s international headquarters are located in Rome.

JRS has programs in 51 countries. The areas of work are in the field of Education, Emergency Assistance, Health and Nutrition, Income-Generating Activities, and Social Services. In total, more than 700,000 individuals have been beneficiaries of JRS projects.

The Catholic Church promoting mass immigration of Mexicans to Catholicize America and build the Vatican’s power base in the USA:

The Vatican promoting mass immigration of Mexicans to Catholicize America

The alt-right narrative is that Jews are mainly behind the policies of mass immigration in America, but in reality, the Catholic Church has been the the main culprit.

As we know, the USA was overwhelmingly white protestant in the early days, and it was reflected in the core values of the nation, that had largely spun off from protestantism, like freedom of speech, and the separation of church and state. The latter is of course diametrically opposed to the official Roman Catholic doctrine, as the state, Vatican City, the Papacy, and the Catholic Church are inseparable. I.e., the Pope is both the head of the church, and the state.

But the Vatican has for long been encouraging mass immigration of Catholics to America to change that, and by doing so building its power base in America. Starting from the 19th century, when the number of Catholics rose from only 35000 in 1790, to 12 million by the end of the century.

Up until 1880s there had been few restrictions regarding immigration, but then things changed, as we read on the American Catholic History Classroom of the Catholic University of America:

The Chinese Exclusion Act was also the first piece of federal legislation that used race or nationality as the basis for immigration policy, an important legal precedent, and one that did not go unchallenged. Many Americans spoke out against the Exclusion Act, arguing that it violated American ideals of freedom and tolerance. Most American Catholics, for example, opposed the act, although anti-Catholic prejudice made the Church reluctant to take an openly critical stance on such a controversial issue. The founding of the NCWC was still in the future at the time of the Act’s passage, meaning that the Church as yet had no organization that could lobby against the bill, should it be moved to do so.

The Chinese Exclusion Act paved the way for broader immigration restrictions. In 1903, Congress forbade the immigration of anarchists and polygamists to the U.S. Four years later, a new bill was passed that prohibited the entry of “those persons afflicted with tuberculosis or with a loathsome or dangerous contagious disease,” as well as any women entering the country “for immoral purposes.” There was growing support for further limitations and restrictions on immigration, fed by fears that the “inferior racial types” from Southern and Eastern Europe were rapidly outnumbering the ethnically dominant old-stock “Nordic” Americans through mass immigration.

These negative attitudes towards certain racial “types” were encouraged by the belief that inherited traits determined a person’s economic and social success. People believed that immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe were genetically less able to be productive citizens, and thus would be a burden on the American public. These ideas influenced the immigration legislation passed by Congress in the 1910s and 1920s. The Immigration Act of 1917, for example, imposed a literacy test on potential immigrants, prohibiting the illiterate from entering the country. Illiteracy was seen as a sign of natural inferiority, rather than as a result of poor education. The literacy test as a basis for immigration restriction was vehemently opposed by the majority of American Catholics, who believed that the bill was aimed at curtailing Catholic immigration to the U.S. The bill was vetoed by President Woodrow Wilson, who insisted that literacy was not an adequate measure of an immigrant’s citizenship potential. The rising tide of nationalist sentiment inspired by American entry into the First World War, however, encouraged Congress to override the veto and establish the literacy test as a means of immigration restriction.

Following the War, the popularity of immigration restriction was at an all-time high. In response, Congress passed the Emergency Quota Act in 1921, which established fixed limits on the number of people emigrating to the U.S. from any one country. The 1921 Act established the quotas based on 3% of the number of immigrants from each national origin group based on the 1910 census, which reflected fewer numbers of immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe than the time in which the act was under debate. In fixing the quotas based on the 1910 numbers, Congress hoped to keep out the supposedly inferior races, such as Italians, Poles, and Slavs. In 1924, the Johnson-Reed Act extended the quota system in an even more discriminatory process.

This Act fixed immigration at 153,700 immigrants per year, a draconian restriction on immigration; it also changed the basis of the quotas to 2% of the nationalities represented in the 1890 census, when even fewer Southern and Eastern Europeans had been present in the United States. The new legislation thus discriminated against Catholic immigrants, the majority of whom came from the “undesirable” regions of Europe. The documents on this page demonstrate Catholic opposition to the Johnson-Reed Act, and the response of the NCWC’s Bureau of Immigration to the Act’s passage.

https://cuomeka.wrlc.org/exhibits/show/immigration/background/1924-intro

American Catholic groups of course opposed these laws restricting immigration from Catholic countries, but interestingly enough, as we see above, they also opposed the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act.

And then came the infamous 1965 Hart-Celler Act, which removed all nationality-based restrictions, and changed everything for decades to come. The alt-right narrative is that it was the Jews that were behind it, especially highlighting the role of Emanuel Celler.

But that’s, again, only half of the story. The co-sponsor of the Act, Philip hart, was a graduate of a Catholic high school, and Jesuit trained at Georgetown University, the Jesuit power base in America, located in Washington, D.C. And Catholic authorities and organizations heavily lobbied in favor of the new law:

The bill proposed by Celler and Hart advocated replacing the quota system with an annual cap on immigration, regardless of country of origin. During the debate on the proposed legislation, American Catholic leaders voiced strong support for the bill. Since the passage of the 1924 Johnson-Reed Act, the Catholic Church had regularly voiced opposition to the discriminatory features of American immigration law, pointing out that it rested on anti-Catholic bigotry as well as racial prejudice. On June 1, 1965, the director of the Department of Migration, John McCarthy, wrote a letter to the NCWC’s General Secretary, Rev. Paul Tanner, stating that the immigration legislation proposed by Celler and Hart was “excellent” and would “eliminate the iniquities and prejudices that have existed in our immigration laws for the past forty years.”

Throughout the summer of 1965, the NCWC sought to rally support for the immigration legislation through outreach to the press, grassroots campaigns, and the coordination of activities with the Catholic hierarchy across the United States. Their advocacy efforts eventually proved successful. Sitting in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty, President Johnson signed the bill into law on October 3, 1965. Only thirteen years separated the passage of the McCarran-Walter Act, which reaffirmed the quota system, and the 1965 immigration act, which eliminated it. Senator Edward Kennedy, one of the Act’s leading advocates, noted that its passage was a victory over “radicalism” and “reaction”, a defeat for the bigotry and prejudice that was embodied in the quota system. He remarked that the “national-origins quota system was conceived in a radical period of our history – a period when bigotry and prejudice stalked our streets, when fear and suspicion motivated our actions toward the world around us.”

https://cuomeka.wrlc.org/exhibits/show/immigration/background/1965-intro

Ted Kennedy, who’s mentioned above, was Roman Catholic, as we all know. And, during a senate debate on the Act, he famously said, “our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually… Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset”.

And today, the Catholic Church is not just promoting legal mass immigration, but also endorsing illegal immigration of Mexicans. The reason is obvious; Mexicans are Catholic – the more Catholics, the more power the Vatican will gain in America.

The Roman Catholic Church is determined to turn Protestant America into a Roman Catholic country, and her best bet to do that is to bring as many Catholics into our nation as possible.

To that end, the Justice for Immigrants campaign was founded by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Twenty other Catholic organizations have joined together with the bishops in a massive educational, media, and political campaign to block immigration reform in America. On its website, the Justice for Immigrants campaign lists the bishops’ “criteria for the reform of the U.S. immigration system, including . . . abandonment of the border ‘blockade’ enforcement strategy.” (2) Plainly speaking, the goal is to eliminate America’s security along our border with Mexico! The U.S. bishops together with their Mexican counterparts, of course with papal consent and encouragement, have determined to use Catholic treasure, influence, and manpower to erase America’s border! This is not surprising to the discerning Christian. Sovereign nations have always been a hindrance to the pope’s effective exercise of his office as “father of kings, governor of the world and Vicar of Christ.”

Mark D. Franken, executive director of Migration and Refugee Services for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, recently told the Washington Times that all of America’s 197 Catholic dioceses “are in some way backing the campaign, with more than 70 being particularly active.” (4) As Mr. Franken points out, Catholic advocacy on behalf of the illegal alien movement is highly organized, and the troops are getting their marching orders from the top. Consider this from the Catholic Zenit News Services: “Representatives of the Holy See and of the Catholic Church in Mexico are opposing a U.S. bill on immigrants, considering it a violation of human rights… On Sunday, the California Catholic Conference of Bishops appealed for full migratory reform, which will include the legalization earned by illegal workers with their effort.” (5) So now criminals “earn” the right to have their criminality ignored by taking a job and getting paid for it.

On January 22, 2003, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, in concert with the Catholic Bishops of Mexico, issued Strangers No Longer: Together on the Journey of Hope—A Pastoral Letter Concerning Migration. This lengthy, authoritative document contains statement after brazen statement endorsing and encouraging illegal immigration from Mexico. The bishops include a glossary of terms in which they differentiate between an immigrant; a legal immigrant; a refugee; and a migrant, one who freely moves back and forth across national borders. The bishops make it clear throughout the document that their concern is for “undocumented” immigrants and migrants—the illegals.

The above-mentioned USCCB pastoral letter laments the deaths of migrants who are trying to enter the US illegally, basically saying they’re a result of the border enforcement policies:

Of particular concern are the border enforcement policies pursued by both governments that have contributed to the abuse and even deaths of migrants in both Mexico and the United States. Along the United States-Mexico border, the U.S. government has launched several border-blockade initiatives in the past decade designed to discourage undocumented migrants from entering the country. These initiatives have been characterized by a tripling of Border Patrol agents, especially at ports of entry, and the use of sophisticated technology such as ground sensors, surveillance cameras, heat-detecting scopes, and reinforced fencing.

Rather than significantly reducing illegal crossings, the initiatives have instead driven migrants into remote and dangerous areas of the southwest region of the United States, leading to an alarming number of migrant deaths. Since the beginning of 1998, official statistics indicate that more than two thousand migrants have lost their lives trying to cross the United States-Mexico border, many from environmental causes such as heat stroke, dehydration, hypothermia, or drowning. The blockades also have contributed to an increase in migrant smuggling, in which desperate migrants pay high fees to smugglers to get them into the United States. In recent years, smuggling has become a more organized and profitable enterprise.

http://www.usccb.org/issues-and-action/human-life-and-dignity/immigration/strangers-no-longer-together-on-the-journey-of-hope.cfm

Just like here in Europe, when the proponents of mass immigration are manipulating people to feel guilty about the deaths of African migrants who are trying enter Europe across the Mediterranean Sea, but end up drowning before reaching their destination.

But what is the solution proposed by the Catholic Church? Future Worker Program:

A worker program to permit foreign‐born workers to enter the country safely and legally would help reduce illegal immigration and the loss of life in the American desert. Any program should include workplace protections, living wage levels, safeguards against the displacement of U.S. workers, and family unity.

http://www.usccb.org/issues-and-action/human-life-and-dignity/immigration/churchteachingonimmigrationreform.cfm

In plain English, they’d want to let all willing Mexican migrants enter the US legally, so there would be no more need for illegal immigration.

Vatican once again calls for global government

The Vatican delegation to the United Nations this week spoke on the issue of universal jurisdiction at a session of the UN General Assembly.

It could be an important tool to ensure accountability and prevent impunity in case of serious violations of international humanitarian law and human rights, and to offer redress to victims,” – said Archbishop Bernardito Auza, the Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations – “When traditional bases of jurisdiction are unable to address some heinous crimes, and when no international tribunal has competence, universal jurisdiction could become a necessary tool.”

The last time was last year:

Pope Francis has joined his papal predecessors in calling for a World Government. In his latest encyclical letter, Laudato Si’, the Vatican leader wrote a dissertation on environmentalism, laying out a litany of “sins” against “Sister Earth” which he thinks should be combated by a new “world political authority.”

According to the pope, these eco-crimes include “excessive anthropocentrism” at the expense of nature, destruction of forests and wetlands for the purpose of agricultural cultivation, and human-caused global warming caused by greedy consumption of fossil fuels. The pope opined that increased use of air-conditioning is particularly corrupt.

The Catholic leader also advocated for government-enforced social justice. He wrote that wealthy nations owe a “social debt” to the poor and impoverished people of the world, a debt which can be paid by increased funding and “better distribution of wealth.”

Manmade global warming is itself of course a total scam to be used as a pretext for global taxation, government and depopulation.

The Vatican did it also in 2011, and in 2009:

In the face of the unrelenting growth of global interdependence, there is a strongly felt need, even in the midst of a global recession, for a reform of the United Nations Organization, and likewise of economic institutions and international finance, so that the concept of the family of nations can acquire real teeth. One also senses the urgent need to find innovative ways of implementing the principle of the responsibility to protect and of giving poorer nations an effective voice in shared decision-making. This seems necessary in order to arrive at a political, juridical and economic order which can increase and give direction to international cooperation for the development of all peoples in solidarity. To manage the global economy; to revive economies hit by the crisis; to avoid any deterioration of the present crisis and the greater imbalances that would result; to bring about integral and timely disarmament, food security and peace; to guarantee the protection of the environment and to regulate migration: for all this, there is urgent need of a true world political authority, as my predecessor Blessed John XXIII indicated some years ago. Such an authority would need to be regulated by law, to observe consistently the principles of subsidiarity and solidarity, to seek to establish the common good, and to make a commitment to securing authentic integral human development inspired by the values of charity in truth. Furthermore, such an authority would need to be universally recognized and to be vested with the effective power to ensure security for all, regard for justice, and respect for rights. Obviously it would have to have the authority to ensure compliance with its decisions from all parties, and also with the coordinated measures adopted in various international forums. Without this, despite the great progress accomplished in various sectors, international law would risk being conditioned by the balance of power among the strongest nations. The integral development of peoples and international cooperation require the establishment of a greater degree of international ordering, marked by subsidiarity, for the management of globalization. They also require the construction of a social order that at last conforms to the moral order, to the interconnection between moral and social spheres, and to the link between politics and the economic and civil spheres, as envisaged by the Charter of the United Nations.

Also, take note of the fact that the word “catholic” itself originally means “universal”. So, Catholicism = universalism, i.e., globalism or internationalism. No wonder they call for world government, and in fact, the Catholic church can well be said to be the mother of all globalism.

Tim Kaine: Jesuits were the heroes of my life [video]

Kaine was raised Catholic in the Kansas City area. His parents were so devout, Kaine told C-SPAN, that “if we got back from a vacation on a Sunday night at 7:30 p.m., they would know the one church in Kansas City that had an 8 p.m. Mass that we can make.” He attended an all-boys Jesuit high school in Kansas City and worked for a year with Jesuit missionaries in Honduras, where he taught welding — his father’s trade — and carpentry.

He and his wife attend St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Richmond, Va., which has a predominantly African-American congregation. He co-founded a men’s study group there.
