cardinal-parolin-goes-to-davosIn yesterday’s post, we observed and chronicled what appears to be the use of the doctrine of the State of Necessity by Francis in his preemptive strike against the new Trump administration. A preemptive strike that took place just a day after the Inauguration and two days before President Trump’s first full day on the job.

Talk about getting ahead of the curve!. But I digress…

The SIGNALLING EFFECT of the suddenness of this attack we described as follows:

And that scope of the status quo that Francis and his co-conspirators are attempting to defend, appears not to be contained to their direct purview of control, but reaches into other areas of human activity in the wider Visibilium Omnium.  

After penning these words, another post came to my attention which illustrates just this phenomenon. That post titled Cardinal Parolin: Diplomat of the New World Order, was written by Christopher Ferrara and appeared at the fatima.org website. In that post, we are provided with a first hand account of how Francis, the bishop of Rome sees the “job description” of the “bishopric” of Rome:

Francis, Parolin continued, has “taken a very great role of leadership in the global issues of the present world. And he is recognized as such, as a global leader… which was very clear in the process of climate change….”

So what we have in the above passage is confirmation that Francis, seeing himself as a “global leader”, is using the organization that he heads, i.e. the post conciliar church and his office, to try and defend the status quo in other areas of human activity in the wider Visibilium Omnium”.  

Which brings us to the question of: what exactly is the “status quo” that Francis and the globalists are trying to defend?

For the answer to that question, I provide the below post written by Charles Hugh-Smith of the OfTwoMinds blog. In this post, Charles lays out exactly what it is that Francis and the globalists are trying to defend.

Of note is what Hugh-Smith describes as the sleight-of-hand that the Leftist/Globalist International carried out when it changed from the historic “Left’s economic defense of labor” to the current promotion of the “social justice movements”. 

What is important to note here is that by abandoning this large sector of society, which falls under the definition of “labor” and pivoting to very small, numerically speaking, but rather wealthy special interest groups, such as the intrinsically disordered lobby, the abortionist lobby, the global warming hoax lobby, etc., the Leftist/Globalists have cut themselves off from a sizeable voter base.

It is exactly this dynamic that we saw playing itself out in the Rust Belt states that turned from their historic support of Democrats to Trump in the last election. On the post-conciliar church side, this exact dynamic is at work in places like Brazil, where the post-conciliar church lost 9 million followers over the last two years. Please remember, the South American protestants are very conservative.

Below is the Hugh-Smith post via the catholic Zero Hedge. It is as good of an explanation as I have come across, of the OBJECTIVE REALITY that exists in the political/economic areas of human activity.

The process described below has a parallel process that is playing itself out in the post-conciliar church. And what this process is telling us is that we are witnessing the complete collapse of Cultural Marxism, just as we witnessed the complete collapse of Economic Marxism in the 1980’s.

The above also explains why Cardinal Parolin did Davos, along with the other globalists, who are desperately trying to figure out how to prop up the status quo.

The Collapse Of The Left’s Great Con


Submitted by Charles Hugh-Smith via OfTwoMinds blog,

The Left is not just in disarray- – it is in complete collapse because the working class has awakened to the Left’s betrayal and abandonment of the working class in favor of building personal wealth and power.

The source of the angry angst rippling through the Democratic Party’s progressive camp is not President Trump–it’s the complete collapse of the Left globally. To understand this collapse, we turn (once again) to Marx’s profound understanding of the state and capitalism.

We turn not to the cultural Marxism that is passingly familiar to Americans, but to Marx’s core economic analysis, which as Sartre noted, is only taught to discredit it.

Cultural Marxism draws as much from Engels as Marx. In today’s use, cultural Marxism describes the overt erosion of traditional values–the family, community, religious faith, property rights and limited central government–in favor of rootless Cosmopolitanism and an expansive, all-powerful central state that replaces community, faith and property rights with statist control mechanisms that enforce dependence on the state and a mindset that the individual is guilty of anti-state thinking until proven innocent by the state’s own rules.

Marx’s critique of capitalism is economic: capital and labor are in eternal conflict. In Marx’s analysis, capital has the upper hand until the internal contradictions of capitalism consume capital’s control from the inside.

Capital not only dominates labor, it also dominates the state. Thus the state-cartel version of capitalism that is dominant globally is not a coincidence or an outlier–it is the the only possible outcome of a system in which capital is the dominant force.

To counter this dominance of capital, social democratic political movements arose to wrest some measure of control out of the hands of capital in favor of labor. Social democratic movements were greatly aided by the near-collapse of the first version of cartel-capitalism in The Great Depression, when writing down the bad debt would have brought down the entire banking system and crippled capitalism’s core function of growing capital via expansion of debt.

The decimated owners of capital realized that they faced a bleak choice: either resist and be toppled by anarchism or Communism, or cede some of their wealth and power to the social democratic parties in exchange for social, political and economic stability.

Broadly speaking, the Left favored labor (whose rights were protected by the state) and the Right favored capital (also protected by the state).

But over the past 25 years of globalized neoliberalism, social democratic movements have abandoned labor to embrace the self-serving wealth and power offered by capital. The essence of globalization is: labor is commoditized as mobile capital is free to roam the globe for the lowest cost labor. In contrast, labor is far less mobile, and unable to shift as fluidly and frictionlessly as capital to exploit scarcities and opportunities.

Neoliberalism–the opening of markets and borders–enables capital to effortlessly crush labor. The social democrats, in embracing open borders, have institutionalized an open immigration that shreds the scarcity value of domestic labor in favor of lower cost immigrant labor that serves capital’s desire for lower costs.

Globalization and neoliberal financial / immigration policies signify the collapse of the Left and the victory of capital. Now capital completely dominates the state and its cronyist structures–political parties, lobbying, campaign contributions, charitable foundations operating as pay-for-play cash vacuums, and all the other features of cartel-state capitalism.

To mask the collapse of the Left’s economic defense of labor, the Left’s apologists and PR machine have substituted social justice movements for economic opportunities to acquire economic security and capital. This has succeeded brilliantly, as tens of millions of self-described “progressives” completely bought the left’s Great Con that “social justice” campaigns on behalf of marginalized social groups were the defining feature of Progressive Social Democratic movements.

This diversionary sleight-of-hand embrace of economically neutered “social justice” campaigns masked the fact that social democratic parties everywhere have thrown labor into the churning propellers of globalization, open immigration and neoliberal financial policies–all of which benefit mobile capital, which has engorged itself on the abandonment of labor by the Left.

Meanwhile, the fat-cats of the Left have engorged themselves on capital’s largesse in exchange for their treachery. Bill and Hillary Clinton’s $200 million in “earnings” come to mind, as do countless other examples of personal aggrandizement by self-proclaimed “defenders” of labor.

Please examine this chart, which depicts labor’s share of GDP (economic output), and tell me the Left hasn’t abandoned labor in favor of personal wealth and power.

The Left is not just in disarray – it is in complete collapse because the working class has awakened to the Left’s betrayal and abandonment of the working class in favor of building personal wealth and power. Anyone who denies this is still in the fatal grip of the Left’s Great Con.
