I have no words, so I will just give you the Breitbart piece:
Pope Francis: ‘Muslim Terrorism Does Not Exist’
In an impassioned address Friday, Pope Francis denied the existence of Islamic terrorism, while simultaneously asserting that “the ecological crisis is real.” “Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. They do not exist,” Francis said in his speech to a world meeting of populist movements.
What he apparently meant is that not all Christians are terrorists and not all Muslims are terrorists—a fact evident to all—yet his words also seemed to suggest that no specifically Islamic form of terrorism exists in the world, an assertion that stands in stark contradiction to established fact.
“No people is criminal or drug-trafficking or violent,” Francis said, while also suggesting—as he has on other occasions—that terrorism is primarily a result of economic inequalities rather than religious beliefs. “The poor and the poorer peoples are accused of violence yet, without equal opportunities, the different forms of aggression and conflict will find a fertile terrain for growth and will eventually explode.”
The Pope also reiterated his conviction that all religions promote peace and that the danger of violent radicalization exists equally in all religions.
“There are fundamentalist and violent individuals in all peoples and religions—and with intolerant generalizations they become stronger because they feed on hate and xenophobia,” he said.
While denying the existence of Islamic terrorism, Francis also seemed to condemn the denial of global warming, asserting that “the ecological crisis is real.”
“A very solid scientific consensus indicates that we are presently witnessing a disturbing warming of the climatic system,” he said.
We know “what happens when we deny science and disregard the voice of Nature,” the Pope said. “Let us not fall into denial. Time is running out. Let us act. I ask you again—all of you, people of all backgrounds including native people, pastors, political leaders—to defend Creation.”
While acknowledging that science is not “the only form of knowledge,” and that “science is not necessarily ‘neutral’” and often “conceals ideological views or economic interests,” he still insisted that people of good will should not oppose “scientific consensus” regarding global warming.
Leftist media like the liberal Guardian in the U.K. immediately politicized the speech, predictably claiming that the Pope was backing “anti-Trump protests,” despite the fact that the Pope himself denied such a claim, explicitly declaring that “I am not speaking of anyone in particular.”
“I am not speaking of anyone in particular, I am speaking of a social and political process that flourishes in many parts of the world and poses a grave danger for humanity,” he said.
Moreover, although the Guardian claimed that the Pope was “condemning populism,” in point of fact, he was speaking to populist movements and praised their commitment to democracy.
“The direction taken beyond this historic turning-point,” Francis said, “will depend on people’s involvement and participation and, largely, on yourselves, the popular movements.”
Nevertheless, the Vatican’s Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, said Monday that the Holy See is concerned over growing populist and nationalist movements, both in Europe and in the United States.
In an interview for the Italian evening news on the state-owned RAI network, the Cardinal was asked whether the Vatican is worried about what the interviewer called “the spread of nationalism and populism not only in Europe but also in the United States with Donald Trump.”
“I think so, I think so,” Parolin said. “Certainly these closings are not a good sign,” since many of them “are born of fear, which is not a good counselor.”
In his address Friday, the Pope denounced “the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable,” which he described as a “hypocritical attitude,” while urging real solutions to unemployment, corruption, the identity crisis, and “the gutting of democracies.”
“The system’s gangrene cannot be whitewashed forever because sooner or later the stench becomes too strong,” he said.- source
I was hesitant to even begin writing this piece. The news sources I usually rely on for credible information don’t seem to be touching this information – not yet.
It seems that for decades, the 7th Floor of our State Department was the home of another government, if you will. They call themselves the “Elite” or “Shadow Government.” Some call this 7th Floor “Deep State.” I know that this sounds like something from a Tom Clancy novel – perhaps even he knew too much and it resulted in his untimely death.
The Death of JFK
President Kennedy knew of this secret society and spoke openly against it. The ties to the Shadow Government must run wide and deep. I am surmising that these criminals are monitored and given their orders from the Illuminati itself. John Kennedy said to the America people that he would not stand for these Secret Societies in a free country as is the U.S. He paid the ultimate price for daring to stand up to them.
Dennis Kucinich came forward after years of silence about Deep State:
Secretary of State Tillerson Fires Most of the Shadow Government
The State Department Swamp was partially drained today. Secretary of State Tillerson fired Clinton’s rogue, self-described Shadow Government.
Making good on a Trump campaign promise, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson drained the Clinton swamp snakes, aka Obama administration holdovers. Thus the personnel responsible for the corrupt handling of Clinton’s emails and the Benghazi cover-up have left the building.
Lurking in the Shadows
In the Clinton State Department, a rogue shadow government existed in secret from the 7th floor. These policy makers publicly boasted about their secretive operations. And you can bet that some of them have been responsible for much of the transition angst experienced by the Trump administration. So Tillerson terminated them.
This is a dramatic move, as it signaled that policy will now be controlled by the White House, not professional diplomats. And not a moment too soon.
As we discovered during the campaign, the corruption among these Democrat government bureaucrats could poison an ocean.
For example, during EmailGate, according to The New York PostUndersecretary Patrick Kennedy offered the FBI a quid pro quo to tamper with Clinton’s emails.
If the Bureau marked Clinton emails unclassified, an FBI summary reported, “State would reciprocate by allowing the FBI to place more agents in countries where they were presently forbidden.”
Kennedy attempted a blatant cover-up. He actually wanted the FBI to change U.S. policy so that it appeared Clinton hadn’t recklessly endangered America’s national security.
The Benghazi Traitors are Gone, Too. Former Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell told the House Select Committee on Benghazi that he helped Hillary Clinton confidants “separate” damaging documents before releasing them to the Accountability Review Board. This board investigated the security lapses that caused the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya.
And according to the Independent Sentinel, Maxwell said the cover-up involved a weekend document session held in the basement of the State Department. During that weekend, he helped a “State Department office director and top Clinton advisor” sift through a room filled with boxed documents. maxwell-pngTheir orders were to purge those documents of anything implicating Clinton or her top advisers of wrongdoing regarding the Benghazi embassy’s security during the terror attack that killed four Americans.
As Maxwell testified:
“She told me, ‘Ray, we are to go through these stacks and pull out anything that might put anybody in the [Near Eastern Affairs] front office or the seventh floor in a bad light,’ “
Maxwell clarified that the “seventh floor” was State Department shorthand for then-Secretary of State Clinton and her principal advisers. During this document purge, Clinton Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills and Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan allegedly entered the room and stayed for a while.
The four Americans killed in the Benghazi attacks were U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith, and CIA contractors Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty. The State Department’s liberal deflection of accountability blamed an anti-Muslim YouTube video. This intentional lie disguised the Clinton State Department’s negligent disregard and apathetic incompetence towards the security of American officials working abroad. Mills was the face of that false video narrative.
You can bet that the Trump administration has begun looking for the enemies within. There were claims recently that the story leaked about using the National Guard for immigration roundups involved smoking on the snakes. We will certainly know more soon.
For now, Thanks to Mr. Tillerson the purge has begun. – source
‘The Shadow Government’ Is Real According to the FBI
In documents made available from the FBI in the investigation into Hillary Clinton and her use of a private email server, it was revealed that within the State Department there existed a cabal of individuals known as ‘The 7th Floor Group’, also known as ‘The Shadow Government’, and it met every Wednesday.
The FBI interviewed one particular individual who said that Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests would actually be routed through and reviewed by this secretive group:
“There was a powerful group of very high-ranking STATE officials that some referred to as ‘The 7th Floor Group’ or ‘The Shadow Government.’ This group met every Wednesday afternoon to discuss the FOIA process, Congressional records, and everything CLINTON-related to FOIA/Congressional inquiries,” the person told the FBI.
For years, TRUNEWS host Rick Wiles has continuously maintained that there has existed a ‘shadow government’ behind the curtains of day to day activities in Washington. Also going by the names ‘The Deep State’, ‘The Welfare-Warfare State’ or other monikers, these individuals comprise the working group that makes things happen and moves policy according to an agenda that is their own.
This documentation is the first time that somone within the current establishment has acknowledged the existence of such a group.
What is ‘THE DEEP STATE’?
Writers, journalists, political scientists and political activists in the United States have for decades expressed concerns about the existence of a deep state or state within a state, which they suspect secretly controls public policy, regardless of which party controls the country’s democratic institutions.
The nexus of power is centered on the military–industrial complex, intelligence community, and Wall Street, with others pointing to plutocrats andoligarchs. Often “big oil” is considered as a key player, while others focuses on national security officials.
Mike Lofgren, an ex-Washington staffer who has written a book on the issue, includes Silicon Valley, along with “key elements of government” and Wall Street, but emphasizes the non-conspiratorial nature of the “state”.
Political scientist Michael J. Glennon believes that this trend is the result of policy being made by government bureaucracies instead of by elected officials.
“I was curious why a president such as Barack Obama would embrace the very same national security and counterterrorism policies that he campaigned eloquently against. Why would that president continue those same policies in case after case after case?” – source
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is cleaning house at the State Department, according to a report.
Staffers in the offices of deputy secretary of state for management and resources as well as counselor were shown the door Thursday, according to CBS News.
Many of those let go were on the building’s seventh floor — top-floor bigs — a symbolically important sign to the rest of the diplomatic corps that their new boss has different priorities than the last one.
The staffing changes came as Tillerson was on his first foreign trip — attending a G-20 meeting in Bonn, Germany.
“As part of the transition from one administration to the next, we continue to build out our team. The State Department is supported by a very talented group of individuals, both Republicans and Democrats,” State Department spokesman RC Hammond told CBS.
“We are appreciative to any American who dedicates their talents to public,” he added.
This week’s round of firings marks the second time State Department personnel have been cleared out since President Trump took office last month.
Four top officials were cleared out of the building at the end of January.
“As is standard with every transition, the outgoing administration, in coordination with the incoming one, requested all politically appointed officers submit letters of resignation,” a State Department spokesman said at the time. –source
The Waters Are Murkier Than Anyone Knew
When President Donald Trump promised to “Drain the Swamp” I do not believe that he knew how big and how filthy were the waters of this diabolical swamp. I do pray that our president has surrounded himself with all trustworthy individuals – that includes the Secret Service.
The revelation of the Deep State must have people constantly looking over their shoulders – making sure that it is friend and not foe walking toward them.
Brethren – we MUST PRAY for God to supernaturally protect President Trump and his family, and VP Pence and his family. Also, please pray for the whole administration and that each person working for the Shadow Government will be discovered and dealt with.
I hope that there is enough evidence to put all of these people away for the rest of their lives – and that includes Hillary Clinton.
