Catholic Churches fire bombed by Mapuche Indians in Chile, 2018
News Item: May 18, 2018, Santiago, Chile – Chilean Catholic Bishops resign en masse
One has to generally be a masochist to try to make sense of the “Pray to Statues and Buy your Salvation” world known as Roman Catholicism. But the Vatican Nuthouse became even nuttier this week when the news wafted from Chile that all thirty four of the Catholic Bishops in that country have resigned their offices after getting a very odd public scolding from Jorge Bergoglio, aka “Pope Francis”.
Bergy, who years ago won his church-spurs in Argentina for trafficking the children of political prisoners imprisoned by his buddies in the military junta, and who stands solidly behind the Vatican policy of concealing and abeting in-house child rapists, was apparently upset that the Chilean Bishops were not protecting children enough. It’s all their fault, according to Bergoglio: sort of like a Mafia Don criticizing his Underbosses for breaking the law.
Damage Controllers call that pissing downward. In the present context, Bergoglio’s pathetic attempt to shift the blame to the Bishops represents yet another act of uncalculated desperation by Rome to deflect attention from its own irresolveable crisis and undeniable criminality. Just months ago, a dozen or more Catholic churches in Chile were burned to the ground by protesting Mapuche Indians who confronted Bergoglio in person, demanding an end to the Catholic church’s theft of their lands and their children; today, the Chilean Bishops have similarly responsed to Bergoglio by walking off the job.
With its typical slavishness, the corporate media have interpreted the Bishops’ resignations by echoing the Vatican’s line that they represented an admission of wrongdoing by the Bishops, in response to the Pope’s criticism of what he called their “negligence”. On the contrary, all indications point to the opposite: namely, that the Bishops’ mass abdication was a protest against the papacy’s passing of blame downward to the local church hierarchy, when in truth the latter were simply enacting the standing Vatican policy known as Crimen Sollicitationas when they covered up child trafficking within their respective dioceses.
One can understand the discontent surfacing from both the top and bottom of the tottering Church of Rome. Despite his Latin American credentials, Pope Bergoglio is not a welcome figure in Chile, nominally one of the more “loyal” Papist enclaves in the world. His compromised past as a hatchet man for the Argentine Dirty War hangs Damoclean-like over his tenure and compels him to be all things to all people. Even as he was donning his “Jorge the Progressive” persona with the Chilean Bishops over child abuse in the church, he appointed and then publicly defended Bishop Juan Barros Madrid, who covered for child rapists like the priest Fernando Karadima in his Diocese of Osorno. Bergoglio’s two-faced hypocrisy has not been lost on anyone.
The truth is that the criminal conviction of the Church of Rome for unspeakable historic crimes has caused it to undergo a major schism that all the spin doctoring, smily-faced popes cannot undo. That rupture is occurring most obviously in the traditionally more authoritarian Catholic regions, like Chile and Ireland, where priests and Bishops are nowadays openly discussing how to disaffiliate from Rome into their own nationally independent churches. The Catholic Curia itself is divided into two permanent factions, with both Bergoglio and former pope and present fugitive from justice, Joseph Ratzinger, angling for supremacy. The Chilean Bishops’ mass resignations are simply the latest expression of this institutional collapse from within, fed by daily surfacing of new evidence of corruption and criminality at every level of the church.
It is in this light that the upcoming appeal by Jorge Bergoglio for “ecumenical unity” with the non-Catholic World Council of Churches at its Geneva conference on June 21 takes on a new and odious significance. Bergoglio must shore up the legitimacy of a criminally convicted Roman papacy soon, or go the route of his predecessor. But the deeper question remains, for not only the Chilean Bishops and Catholics of conscience, but for the Protestant and Evangelical churches and people of the world: will you continue to allow abomination and murder to reign behind the mask of Roman Catholicism? Or will you finally put an end to the oldest crime and the oldest lie in history?
“For the Pope, 10 million, while we die in the cities …”
Austin, TX – When a SWAT team initiated a no-knock raid in search of cannabis, they were met with gunfire, and while the resident surrendered as soon as he realized his home was being raided by police, the fact that he opened fire on the intruders and shot one of them in the leg has resulted in a 13-year prison sentence.
When a SWAT team broke down the door and charged into the Harrell family’s house in the early morning hours of April 14, 2016, they claimed that the intrusive operation was justified, because they believed 18-year-old Tyler Harrell was running a drug ring out of his parents’ home.
When Tyler Harrell was woken up by what he believed were burglars breaking into his home, he did what many gun owners would do, and he grabbed his firearm and confronted the intruders. He used his legally-owned AK-47, and while he did not kill any of the officers, he did wound one officer by shooting him in the knee.
Lisa Harrell told KVUE News that she believes her son only opened fire because he thought his family was being robbed. “[Tyler] came running out with his gun, thinking someone was intruding in our house, and he started shooting down the stairs,” she said. “I know my son thought there was an intruder in the house.”
Hours after the shooting, police confirmed that “another SWAT team member returned fire, but did not hit Harrell, who surrendered to police within minutes,” indicating that as soon as Harrell realized he was firing at police officers, he stopped and let them arrest him without a fight.
When officers searched the home, they found one ounce of cannabis, which would justify a misdemeanor charge against Harrell. However, because the officers initiated a no-knock raid before dawn, and Harrell attempted to protect his family from the intruders, he was charged with attempted capital murder.
During the trial, Harrell’s psychiatrist testified that at the time of the shooting, he was “suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder after an incident four months earlier in which he and his friends were robbed by a masked gunman,” and the gunman shot Harrell, before Harrell “wrested the gun away from the man and chased him out the door of his friend’s apartment,” according to a report from the Austin Statesman.
However, it was the testimony from Officer James Pittman that apparently pulled at the heartstrings of jury members. He was the only person injured by Harrell’s gunfire, and he said the bullet wound in his leg kept him from playing with his kids now and would force him to get knee replacement surgery one day.
Pittman also criticized the “Not Guilty” verdict from another Texas case in which a homeowner shot and wounded three police officers when they initiated a no-knock raid on his house. Ray Rosas spent nearly two years in jail awaiting his trial, and his actions were ruled justified based on the fact that he was acting in self-defense and did not know the intruders he was shooting were police officers.
Rosas was acquitted, despite the fact that 11 police officers testified against him. However, in the case of Tyler Harrell, his lawyer argued that the 18 SWAT team members who attended court in tactical gear to show their support for Officer Pittman, further demonized Harrell in the eyes of the jury.
“Look at this gallery. You don’t think this is a lot of political pressure for these people?” Lawyer Michael Chandler told the jury.
The pressure worked, and while the jury determined that Tyler Harrell was not guilty of attempted capital murder or aggravated assault on a public servant, he was found guilty of aggravated assault and sentenced to 13 years and six months in prison, and a fine of $7,000.
When the trial shifted to a debate over whether Harrell acted in self-defense, it served as a distraction from the fact that the drug raid on his home was an absolute failure, and officers were never able to prove that Harrell was a “large drug dealer” of marijuana and cocaine, which was the claim they used to justify obtaining a search warrant for the raid in the first place.
Scarnati listed a large number of adverse effects of Ritalin and cited published journal articles which reported each of these symptoms.
For every one of the following (selected and quoted verbatim) Ritalin effects, there is at least one confirming source in the medical literature:
Hypomanic and manic symptoms, amphetamine-like psychosis
Activation of psychotic symptoms
Can surpass LSD in producing bizarre experiences
Effects pathological thought processes
Since Ritalin is considered an amphetamine-type drug, expect amphetamine-like effects
High-abuse potential DEA Schedule II Drug
Decreased REM sleep
When used with antidepressants one may see dangerous reactions including hypertension, seizures and hypothermia
Brain damage may be seen with amphetamine abuse.
Let’s go deeper. In the US alone, there are at least 300,000 cases of motor brain damage incurred by people who have been prescribed so-called anti-psychotic drugs (aka “major tranquilizers”). Risperdal (mentioned above as a drug given to people diagnosed with Bipolar) is one of those major tranquilizers. (source: Toxic Psychiatry, Dr. Peter Breggin, St. Martin’s Press, 1991)

I don’t recommend any kind of A4V “Process” for Joe Average. That only extends to people who are legitimately federal employees and/or dependents because of the bankruptcy—- they aren’t actually getting any 1930’s style “A4V” redemption per se. They are getting debts discharged in bankruptcy.
If you are not a Federale and don’t want to be listed as bankrupt, stay out of it and get your assets out of the bankruptcy slush pile by sending your BC to Mnuchin and telling him to move it and set it aside. No A4V’s except for legitimate “FEDERAL PERSONS” and no TDA’s.
Once you move back to the land jurisdiction, those FEDERAL PERSONS are re-flagged as vessels operating in International Trade, not Commerce— and the remedies of Commerce — bankruptcy, etc., do not apply. You are owed remedy for this situation in probate, instead.
The process I recommend for regular Joe Average non-federal employee, non-federal dependent is simple and straightforward.
- Get your Trade Name recorded and permanently domiciled on the land via an Acknowledgement, Acceptance and Deed of Re-Conveyance.
- Claim all variations, spellings, permutations, punctuation, and orderings of any Names/NAMES that have ever been used or associated with you via a Certificate of Assumed Name added as an Extension to your Deed of Re-Conveyance.
- Cancel all prior Powers of Attorney. Record that as an Extension.
- Issue a Letter of Appointment making your Trade Name the Power Holder and Attorney in Fact. Record that as an Extension.
- Issue a Mandatory Notice under FSIA — examples have been provided. Record that as an Extension.
And then, for God’s sake, just settle down and stop money grubbing. This is the first, most important part of living as a free living being again and the best means of protecting yourself and your assets available. Don’t turn right around and muck it up again by getting your cart in front of your horse, making claims against bankrupt entities (which can get you in big trouble), and/or contracting to act as a Federale again.
You can’t be “in” and “out” at the same time.
You can’t be an apple and an orange.
You can’t be a sovereign and a citizen.
You can’t be acting in a private capacity and a public capacity at the same time.
You can’t claim that you are a free man standing on the land, and then turn around and claim that you are an indentured servant at sea.
You can’t claim to be an heir and landlord and at the same time claim to be a destitute pauper in need of funds from the Public Charitable Trust.
There is a LOGIC to this, people, and you have GOT to understand it and live by it.
