By a 5-4 decision, the United States Supreme Court halted the voter count ordered by the Florida Supreme Court in December, 2000 handing the presidential election to George W. Bush. In 2001, Bush repaid the Vatican by launching an ongoing religious war against Islam, killing thousands of innocent Muslim men, women and children with every weapon in the US arsenal including nuclear weapons. Fourteen years later, when the Vatican saw Americans beginning to tire of war, Francis, the Jesuit pope, declared Junipero Serra ___ the catholic priest who enslaved, tortured and murdered 300,000 native Americans ___ an America saint. Pope Francis informed a war weary world, teeming with refugees trying to escape American terrorism, that the Vatican’s 21st century crusade had not yet reached its conclusion.
Oakland, CA August, 2018
On Monday, January 10, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court voted to allow Ohio to continue purging minorities and others from its voter rolls. The Supreme Court decision continues the court’s heavy-handed disenfranchisement of minority voters throughout the United States. This decision by the court’s majority, Roberts, Kennedy, Thomas, Alito and Gorsuch, all catholics, solidified the Vatican’s ongoing influence over US elections.
Millions of Voters Have Been Illegally Purged
According to Kira Lerner of ThinkProgress.org, 16 million minority and low-income voters were purged prior to the 2016 election. A report by the Brennan Center for Justice says that the purge of minority voters was so significant that, despite the large number of eligible voters likely to vote Democratic in the 2018 midterm elections, many are also likely to be disenfranchised. Though the press, the deep state as well as the Democratic Party are united in their condemnation of the ‘Russian threat’ against America’s democracy in the upcoming midterms elections, nothing is being said about this ongoing ‘Republican plot’ to steal the elections by suppressing non-white voters. It is more likely that millions of minority voters will show up at the polls for the midterm elections in November and find that the Republicans have purged them from the voter rolls than the electoral process failing because of Russian interference. So through the machinations of the catholic members of the Supreme Court, the outcome of the upcoming midterm elections will likely maintain right wing fascists in power and the Democratic party ___ along with the mainstream media and the deep state ___ will clamor for a war with Russia.
According to Michael Harriot of the Root.com, no reasonable effort has even been made to safeguard the American democracy from the Republican Party’s suppression efforts. Instead of securing the voting process and making voting more accessible to all American citizens, state and local governments focus under Republican control are making voting more difficult, if not impossible, for minorities across the nation. Voter suppression by state governments and local officials is neither random nor isolated. The nationwide effort to disenfranchise minorities and low-income citizens has been as methodical as it has been effective.
A key player in the Republican effort to disenfranchise minority voters has been Kris Kobach, Chairman of the Kansas Republican Party, current Kansas Secretary of State and Republican nominee for governor of Kansas. Kobach established the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck computer program to suppress the 2016 vote. Kobach’s Voter Crosscheck program purged 344,000 minorities in Pennsylvania, 589,000 in North Carolina and 449,000 in Michigan. In their Salon.com article, Thom Hartmann and Richard Greene claim that Kobach’s, Voter Crosscheck program deployed to 27 states suppressed 7 million votes in the 2016 election. The program was so effective that Trump picked Kobach to head his Presidential Voter Commission charged with spearheading the national Republican 2018 voter suppression effort. Voter suppression is how Donald Trump became president and how the Republicans intend to remain in power.
Supreme Court’s Role In Voter Suppression
The Supreme Court has interfered with the electoral process since the 2000 presidential election. According to Myrna Perez of the UK’s Guardian, no part of the US is immune from the court’s election decisions. Just as Stalin consolidated his power in Russia through purges in the 1930s, court authorized voter purges have effectively consolidated the power of billionaire oligarchs who bankroll right wing fascist organizations. Perez observes that in every American election since 2000, voters have shown up at their polling places, only to find their names have been removed from the registration list and must leave without voting. In 2013, nearly 39,000 Virginians voters were removed from the voter rolls based upon what the state claimed was faulty data. In 2016, the New York City board of elections wrongly deleted more than 200,000 names. These egregious election violations were as common under the Obama administration as they were under Bush.
In 2013, with its Shelby v. Holder ruling, the Supreme Court dismantled all federal protections for minority voters. This decision paved the way not only for states with a history of voter discrimination to purge minority voters from their rolls, it also paved the way for the Republican program of national voter suppression. Prior to the Supreme Court’s 2013 decision, areas around the country with histories of racial discrimination in voting were prohibited from making any election changes that disenfranchised black and minority voters. Yet, an all catholic majority of the Supreme Court, Roberts, Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas and Alito, gutted these federal voter protection laws.
In the early 20th century, the Vatican controlled Europe’s Catholic political parties. Pope Pius XI used his political power to orchestrate the rise of the fascist catholics, Benito Mussolini, Adolf Hitler and Francisco Franco. During WWII, Hitler appointed Father Jozef Tiso, to head the fascist Czechoslovakian government. The Vatican directed Hitler to appoint the Franciscan priest who was hung after the war for war crimes. When the combined Italian and German armies occupied Yugoslavia, Pius XII persuaded Hitler to appoint the Ustashi leader, Ante Pavelić, to run the fascist Yugoslavian government. The Ustashi was a catholic political party. After WWII, the Vatican operated a ‘ratline’ using Jesuit, Franciscan and Benedictine priests to smuggle thousands of fascist and Nazi war criminals to the Americas taking with them the weapons, the wealth and the will to commit further crimes against humanity.
Vatican Control Of The Supreme Court Is No Accident
There are nine justices on the Supreme Court. Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas Sonia Sotomayor and retiring Justice, Anthony Kennedy are practicing Catholics. The Trump appointee, stolen from Barack Obama by the Republican Senate keadersip, Neil Gorsuch, was raised as a catholic and founded the catholic organization, Fascism Forever. The other justices on the bench, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan, are all Jewish. Such a secret and unholy alliance ___ like Adolf Hitler and Emil Maurice.
With the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, Trump has nominated a catholic, Brett Kavanaugh, as Kennedy’s replacement. If Kennedy is not confirmed, all the other candidates on Trump’s short list of Supreme Court nominees are also catholics. Under Trumpism and Republican fascism, the Vatican will maintain its control over the US Supreme Court far into the future.
There are 1.2 billion catholics worldwide; 68.5 million are white Americans, 16.4 million Hispanic Americans, 3 million black Americans and 648 thousand Filipino/Asian Americans. In total, 20% of Americans are catholic, but 55.5% of the Supreme Court is catholic. Catholics are also overrepresented in Congress: 31% of the 115th Congress is catholic.With only 1.73% of the American population, Jews are even more overly represented on the Supreme Court with 44.5% of the seats. And with 13% of the US Senate, the thirteen Jewish Senators give the Jews [as well as Israel] an overwhelming political advantage.
The Vatican Worldview: White Supremacy
If Brett Kavanaugh is appointed to the Supreme Court, the Vatican will not only have an articulate spokesman for its Islamic crusade, it will also have an advocate for the Vatican’s favorite tactic for maintaining population control: torture. As one of the Bush administration’s top legal experts, Kavanaugh made important contributions to the policy of American exceptualism dealing with the efficacy and legality of torture. The Vatican will expect that Kavanaugh will be especially supportive of the ongoing horrors being perpetrated against the indigenous peoples of South and Central America.
In 1836, Roger Taney became the first catholic to serve on the US Supreme Court. Chief Justice Taney is famous for his Dred Scott decision. Dred Scott was a black slave who claimed to have been freed by reason of being transported by his master from the south to Wisconsin, which, at the time, was a free state. Scott sued for his freedom and the case eventually came before the US Supreme Court. Eight of the Supreme Court justices were from the south and the ninth, Robert Grier of Pennsylvania, was staunchly pro-slavery.
Roger Taney wrote the majority 7-2 decision rejecting Dred Scott’s claim to be a free person of color. Taney held that Scott’s residence in a free state did not free him from slavery and that, under the U.S. Constitution, Dred Scott was and remained a slave wherever in the US he resided. Furthermore, Taney wrote:
African negroes have for more than a century before been regarded as beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political relations; and so far inferior, that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect; and that the negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his [the white man’s] benefit. He was bought and sold, and treated as an ordinary article of merchandise and traffic, whenever a profit could be made by it.
The two dissenting justices, though both southerners, were neither racists nor catholics.
The catholic bishop, Bartholomew de las Casas introduced African slavery into the New World in the 16th century. Las Casas saw that the native populations were unable to survive the brutal slavery imposed on them by the Spanish catholics. So the catholic bishop petitioned the King of Spain and the Pope of Rome for permission to enslave Africans to work on Spanish plantations and in Spanish mines. Less concerned for the conditions endured by indigenous people than with the expeditious looting of gold and silver, the Vatican gave las Casas permission to institute African slavery in the ‘new world.’ As a natural consequence, once the indigenous people no longer had any economic value, the Vatican targeted them for extermination ___ a process that under Junipero Serra pursued in California and a policy that continues to this day. All the popes of the 20th century, with the exception of Pope John XXIII and Pope Paul VI have been avowedly racist and have worked assiduously for the restoration of white supremacy throughout the world.
‘Upon This Rock…’
It is written that the Apostle, Peter, Christ’s representative on earth, is the rock upon which the catholic church is built. Whatever Peter and his successors, the popes of Rome, bind on earth is bound in heaven and whatever the popes forbid on earth is forbidden in heaven. If the white racists on earth continue to maintain their stranglehold over God’s church, imagine what heaven has in store for non-white catholics. The saintly, Pope John XXIII, labored mightily to reform this racist institution. When his successor, Pope Paul VI, was murdered, evil, once again, in the person of John Paul II, seized the power of the Vatican.
In the early 1940s, the I.G. Farben Chemical Company hired a Polish chemist and salesman to provide malathion, cyanide and Zyclon-B to Auswitz Concentration Camp. [After the war]Fearing arrest as a war criminal, the chemist entered a seminary and was ordained in 1946. The chemist now a priest was consecrated a bishop in 1958. In 1978, after Pope Paul VI was poisoned, the poison gas chemist and salesman [now Cardinal Karol Józef Wojtyla, Archbishop of Warsaw] succeeded him as Pope John Paul II.from Beyond A Pale Horse
