Yesterday we left off our running analysis of the bi-Synods providing a “most likely” explanation for why Francis (through the Secretariatt) submitted the Instrumentum Laboris as the proposed Final Relatio to be voted on by the Synod Fathers, knowing that it would be defeated.

Here is how we summarized the situation in the Synod Hall on the morning of the 22nd of October 2015:

Francis’ actions of submitting the Instrumentum Laboris in the last-minute, in Italian only to the Synod Fathers, must be viewed as follows:

FRANCIS, was attempting to provoke the Synod Fathers into rejecting his proposed FINAL RELATIO, intended on provoking a FAILED SYNOD and create an environment which would lead to a SCHISM.

The OBJECTIVE EVIDENCE and our ANALYSIS demonstrated that the MOST LIKELY reason behind Francis’ attempt to engineer a FAILED SYNOD was to implement a plan first set out by the Heretical Clericalist Karl Rahner S.J. which called for a dismantling of the Europeanized and Romanized Catholic Church and replacing it with a “WORLD CHURCH”.

In other words, what Francis intends is the DISMANTLE the CHURCH AS OUR LORD FOUNDED IT, i.e. hierarchical and centered in Rome and replace it with a decentralized “WORLD CHURCH” which has dicastories in Rome, Bogota and some undisclosed German city. And the basis for this game plan is that it would be in keeping with “the meaning of Vatican II and aggiornamento”.

This written above sounds pretty bizarre, yet the OBJECTIVE EVIDENCE, when run through our Peirce/Ockham pragmatic methodology (see here) suggests that it is the HYPOTHESIS best meets the “numquam ponenda est pluralitas sine necessitate” test.

Given that our MODEL has produced a HYPOTHESIS that on the surface appears to be RADICAL, today we will see if we can identify another observation, unrelated to and independent of what transpired during the bi-Synodal, which can confirm what we have set out above.

And it just so happens that we have another EVENT unfolding presently in Rome which we can run through our MODEL and see if it produces any corroborating evidence. This EVENT is the scheduled release of two books. Here is how this release is being billed by Reuters: (see here)

Two new books by Italian journalists depict a Vatican plagued by mismanagement, greed, cronyism and corruption and where Pope Francis still faces stiff resistance from the old guard to his reform agenda.

When reading the above, one is struck by the phrase “Pope Francis still faces stiff resistance from the old guard”. The reason that this phrase doesn’t make sense is that the entire Francis papacy is “engineered” to bring back the “old guard”, or rather the “guard” that Benedict replaced with the “new guard”. Given this intro, it is time to put on our investigate journalist hats and try to determine as to what are the OBJECTIVE FACTS.

Starting with the fact that one of the books is written by none other than Gianluigi Nuzzi, a name that we are familiar with since he is the journalist that broke the original Vatican Leaks scandal that started the ball rolling with respect to the Benedict abdication, we can try to see if there is any information relating to any of the individuals that were his sources at the time. And lo and behold, one of this self admitted sources, one Francesca Chaouqui has been in the news lately.

Turns out that  Francesca Chaouqui and Monsignor Lucio Angel Vallejo Balda were arrested over the weekend by the Vatican for disclosing confidential information.

Given the above, we have another “fog of war lifting” moment, and we have a clearer picture of what is in fact transpiring. So first we set out some background.

The logical place to start is at the end of the 2005 Conclave that elected Benedict XVI to the See of St. Peter. The distant runner-up was one Jorge Bergoglio, Archbishop of Buenos Aires. Now Archbishop Bergoglio appeared to not be a good loser, since after this conclave, it is reported that he set up an information network (i.e. spies) who were keeping him in the loop as to what was transpiring inside the Sacred Vatican Walls on a regular basis. Therefore, Jorge Bergoglio had first hand information as to the who, what and where of the VatiLeaks scandal as it was playing itself out. ( I will post the link to the source as soon as I find it)

Fast forward to the 2013 Conclave that elected Francis, one of the first things Francis began doing is putting his people into “sensitive” positions at the various dicastories. Among some to the appointments were individual such as our friend Archbishop José Rodríguez “Call me Pepe” Carballo as the Secretary of the Congregation of the Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life. (see here) At the Congregation of Divine Worship, Francis replace the entire Ratzingerian staff before he appointed Cardinal Sarah as the Prefect. (see here)

And the situation was very similar with the second-in-command at the Prefecture for the Economic Affairs of the Holy See, where Monsignor Lucio Angel Vallejo Balda’s career was starting to “leapfrog” over his direct superior, Cardinal Giuseppe Versaldi, who – among other things – bears the disadvantage of being part of the declining team of cardinal secretary of state Tarcisio Bertone, after Francis ascended to the papacy.

To understand the inordinate amount of confidence that Francis had in Msgr. Vallejo Balda, here is the relevent text from Sandro Magister: (emphasis added)

And the proof is in the dominant role that the papal chirograph instituting the commission assigns to Monsignor Vallejo Balda: not only that of its secretary, but also that of “coordinator who has powers of delegation and acts in the name and on behalf of the commission in the collection of documents, data, and information necessary to the performance of its institutional functions.”

One can even infer that the pope has also entrusted to Vallejo Balda the task of selecting and recruiting the members of the commission. This can be deduced from the letter with which he announced the appointment to each of them: from the way in which he annotated their resumes, referring (in rather jumbled Italian) to his personal meetings with one or the other.

Folks, we are not dealing here with a cleric who made a good first impression on a new pontiff, a new pontiff who had moved from Buenos Aires 5 months earlier and is trying to figure out who is who.

As to one of the tasks that Francis entrusted to Vallejo Balda was “the selecting and recruiting of members of the commission”, and one of Vallejo Balda’s appointments was none other than the notorious Francesca Immacolata Chaouqui.

Here is how Magister describes Mrs.Chaouqui.

The Vatican secretariat of state had accurate information about her a number of months before her appointment, last July 18, as a member of the commission for the reorganization of the financial-administrative offices of the Holy See, with the ability to access all of the most confidential documents.

What was known at this time was as follows:

One would have gathered from this, among other things, that Francesca Chaouqui has a direct connection with Gianluigi Nuzzi, the journalist who received and published the documents stolen from Benedict XVI by his unfaithful butler, and is an assiduous informer of the website dagospia.com, the source most widely followed in Italy for gossip and slander on the Vatican.

And as Magister writes, suppose Francis didn’t know who Francesca Immacolata Chaouqui was, who convinced Francis of her appiontment? Magister writes:

The most likely hypothesis leads back to Monsignor Lucio Ángel Vallejo Balda, secretary of the prefecture for the economic affairs of the Holy See and since July 18 also secretary and factotum of the newly created commission of which Francesca Chaouqui is a member.

Given the above, what we see is Francis, acting through a very trusted cleric who is the Secretary of Prefecture of the Economy, creating a commission and appointing a notorious individual who is known to leak classified information to anti-Catholic media, simultaneously giving the known leaker accesswith the ability to access all of the most confidential documents.”

Fast forward to February 2014, it was announced that Francis gave the portfolio of the newly created Secretariat for the Economy to Cardinal Pell. (see here) The newly created Secretariat of the Economy inherits the Prefecture of the Economy along with its second in command, the Secretary of the Prefecture of the Economy and Francis confidant Monsignor Lucio Angel Vallejo Balda.

Fast forward to today, by a stroke of coincidence, maybe even with a little nudge from our local “god of surprises”, the journalist whose source was the Vallejo Balda appointed  Francesca Chaouqui, Gianluigi Nuzzi is set to release a book based on information on which he was sitting on for two years.

So what are we left with?

What we are left with is a classical “ticking bomb” with Cardinal Pell, Francis arch nemesis sitting on top of the whole SHA-BANG.

Concluding this post, question:

Will anyone be surprised that the narrative of these two books that will be release later today, will have a good Francis, bishop of Rome and the church of the poor,  fighting the good fight against the “old guard” who are trying to destabilize this pontificate so they can keep their power, privilege and standard of living that they are accustomed to?

OK It was a rhetorical question.

Summa summarum. How does our Peirce/Ockham MODEL explain the above, given that the threshold of testing any HYPOTHESIS is that with all things being equal, the simplest explanations tend to be the right ones?

The answer is actually easy to discern. Our OBJECTIVE ANALYSIS indicates that Francis, trying to dismantle the Church as OUR LORD founded it, and bring in a WORLD CHURCH in line with the “new springtime of the spirit of Vatican II”, i.e. the Aggiornomento is putting in place the infamous “Vatican II ticking bombs”, whose purpose is to destabilize the foundational elements of the Catholic Faith, in accordance with the game plan set out by the HERETICAL CLERICALIST Karl Rahner S.J. (see here)

We have identified and analyzed this mechanism at work at the bi-Synods. (see here and here and here) We have also provided anecdotal evidence from clerics on the peripheries in our post The Cruelest “god” of All. (see here) We now see this mechanism at work in the Nuzzi book and the Balda and Chaouqui arrests.

What we also see is the sloppiness of Francis’ scheming. During the Stealth Sex Synod™ of 2015, whereby with the compromise reached between the Heretical Clericalists and the Catholic Synod Fathers, Francis (Secretariat) was forced to show his intent, i.e. either force through the unacceptable Instrumentum Laboris as the Final Relatio or possible SCHISM. Now in this present situation, we  note that the Francis appointment of the notorious Chaouqui who was known to leak information to the journalist Nuzzi, and over the protests of clerics from the Vatican Secretariat of State, (see here) Francis has again LEFT HIS FINGERPRINTS all over the “ticking bomb” that will be exploded later today.

However, it would appear that the Law of Unintended Consequences, if not the real “God of surprises” might have intervened and something must have gone horribly wrong. Over the past weekend, news broke that Francesca Chaouqui and Monsignor Lucio Angel Vallejo Balda were arrested on suspicion of leaking confidential documents. This would indicate that people at the Secretariat of the Economy were watching these two Friends of Francis and called in the Swiss Guard at the appropriate time. Knowing that these two are Francis’ associates, this action was nothing short of the Curia sending a message to Francis. But more on this in a future post.

Back to our subject matter at hand and our running analysis, the significance of the above is that it provides us with another supporting piece of EVIDENCE regarding Francis’ attempt at the destruction of the Church, EVIDENCE that is independent and unrelated to the evidence obtained from analyzing the bi-Synods.

Stay tuned sports fans. It’s getting interesting…
