While threats regarding a possible civil war in Israel abound (Ukraine and Taiwan were not apocalyptic enough) as military reserves have threatened to desert, while fundamentalist commentators accuse the deep state of organizing anarchist protests against Netanyahu and his reforms, I thought now was the perfect time too actually provide an in-depth comparative analysis of the judicial reforms, what their results will be and whether the criticisms are legally sound.
Pope John Paul II knew about abuse by priests but failed to act against it as archbishop and cardinal before he became Pope, or so certain headlines say.
This claim was made by Dutch journalist Ekke Overbeek last year in preparation for her book Mea Culpa that’s due to be released this week (Mea Culpa was already the title off a documentary about abuse in the Catholic Church, these titles that are puns referencing Latin words in Catholic rituals mocked by mainstream Protestants reek of old-fashioned anti-Catholicism that seeks to weaponise child abuse by caring about and focusing on it selectively). Michal Gutowski, the investigator behind the report for anti-PiS (ruling Right-wing party in Poland) private broadcaster TVN has now repeated the claims and added to them.
Will the EU fulfil its agreement with Poland after Poland has finally done its part? Will it release the recovery funds to aid Poland’s battered economy? Or will it starve Poland till the upcoming election?
The wonderful great Benedict turns out to have left his money and the rights to his popular works to his trusted secretary who stood by him up to and even after his death.
Francis has now claimed that criticisms made against him by Benedict’s inner circle are actually opportunistic, that they take advantage of the late pontiff. Yet, his accusations seem to show that he himself is doing just that.
As stories are popping at that Lula’s minister of justice knew about the coming attack and did nothing, and that this possible false flag is being used to justify putting more than 1500 protesters in concentration camps and to fire and even arrest heads of the military police and even judges in Brazil, I thought it would be fun to reflect on the 2019 riots in Chile. (Oh and police-man are being burned alive in Peru as violent protests continue cause the Marxist ex-president was impeached for attempting an anti-constitutional self-coup).
Protesters have stormed the congress building in Brazil.
But was there a guy with a trident?????
Benedict’s funeral was just two days ago. Now in a week a book by his secretary Gänswein will be published which reveals criticisms of Benedict on stances and ambiguities off Francis as well as Francis rather mean-spirited or cold conduct towards Benedict and Gänswein. This just after it had already been revealed that Benedict had supported Traditionalist communities after Francis’ crackdown on the Tridentine Mass. With Benedict buried the truth is being dug up.
The outpouring of support and devotion to Pope Benedict XVI, Vicarius Christi of the Catholic Church (April 19 2005- 31 December 2022), has been massive. The Vatican has been surprised and overwhelmed by the large number of faithful coming to see the deceased pope.
Brazilians are currently waiting to see what happens. One twitter poster said they’d see the fate of their country in the next few hours. Others believe a (counter)coup will occur on the day of Lula’s inauguration. The Riotimes has been suggesting a coup may very well still happen any moment.
