  • "VatiLeaks" - Archbishop And Butler Did It.... (Signalling End Of Roman Cult)

    The beginning of the end of the (so called) corrupt Roman cult began, when:

    < Pope Benedict, had issued a decree for the Vatican to adopt international money-laundering norms to combat the financing of terrorism. This initiative would allow outside auditors to examine the Vatican's financial books. ....... For an institution historically allergic to scrutiny, this constituted a revolution. >

    Pope Francis then 'put the icing on the cake' with his Decree (issued Motu Proprio), that commenced on September 1st, 2013.

    Goodies V's Baddies - And surely, two unsung heroes?

    < As Secretary General of the Governatorate, he [Archbishop Carlo Viganò] spoke at the General Assembly of Interpol in Nov. 2010, saying that ......

    ....."the issue which needs to be faced is one closely linked to the process of globalisation which is now affecting every aspect of the life of nations, peoples and individuals, and is accompanied by political and economic changes which are often uncontrolled and even uncontrollable. This in fact is what touches most closely the lives of nations and individual citizens.

    [And] While it is true that globalisation offers opportunities for development and enrichment, ...... it is also true that it can cause increased poverty and hunger, which in turn can spark chain reactions often leading to widely disparate forms of violence.

    Nor can we underestimate the fact that the fruits of technological and scientific progress can, for all their enormous benefits to humanity, be used in a way that clearly violates the order of creation, even to the point of denying the sacredness of life and stripping the human person and the family of their natural identity".

    He went on to say:

    "The Holy See has always recalled this urgent need, conscious of the fact that the desire for peace, the pursuit of justice, respect for the dignity of the person, humanitarian cooperation and assistance are expressions of the just aspirations of the human spirit and the ideals which ought to undergird international relations.

    The Holy See has done so vigorously, even in recent days, as for example by intervening in the current debate on disarmament at the United Nations and urging all parties to reach agreement on definitive and complete disarmament"

    Pope Benedict XVI had appointed Viganò ambassador to the United States, a plum post where he would settle into a stately mansion on Massachusetts Avenue, across the street from the vice president's residence.

    "He went through the ordeal making it very clear he was unhappy with it," said one former ambassador to the Vatican, who attended the Vatican Gardens ceremony in the late summer of 2011. "And we just couldn't figure out, us outsiders and non-Italians, what was going on."

    There was no such confusion within Vatican walls.

    Benedict had installed Viganò to enact a series of reforms within the Vatican. But some of Rome's highest-ranking cardinals undercut the efforts and hastened Viganò's exile to the United States. > WP -

    Suspect? Cardinal Bertone...

    Pope Francis 'furious' at senior Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone's plan to 'retire in four-storey penthouse'

    < Pope Francis is reportedly furious at the plans of a former senior member of the clergy, who hopes to retire in a palatial penthouse apartment overlooking Rome.

    Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone was appointed secretary of state - one of the most senior positions in the Church - by Pope Benedict XVI in 2006, and retired last October.

    Claims that Bertone planned to create a lavish home emerged in April, and came to a head in late May when Italian gossip magazine, Chi, published a photo of the renovation atop the Palazzo San Carlo building in the Italian city. >

    That above story:

    "The [VatiLeaks] scandal first came to light in January 2012 when Italian journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi published letters from Carlo Maria Viganò, formerly the second ranked Vatican administrator to the Pope, in which he begged not to be transferred for having exposed alleged corruption that cost the Holy See millions in higher contract prices. Viganò is now the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States.

    On Friday (May 25) 2012 ....Vatican police announced the arrest of a person who was "illicitly in possession" of confidential Vatican documents.

    The person was later revealed to be Paolo Gabriele, Pope Benedict's "assistente di camera," or butler. WP

    The butler read letters fleshing out how Viganò, an ambitious enforcer of Benedict's good government reforms, had earned powerful enemies.

    < In early 2011, a series of hostile anonymous articles attacking Viganò began appearing in the Italian media.

    Under duress, Viganò appealed to the pope's powerful second in command, Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone. Bertone was not sympathetic and instead echoed the articles' complaints about his rough management style and removed Viganò from his post. >

    Angelo Sodano, John Paul II's secretary of state and Bertone's predecessor, was not exactly a fan of Bertone...

    < Bertone worked diligently to consolidate power. His allies control the church's main financial institutions, prompting one official to write in a leaked document that traditional checks and balances had been ignored. "They say that our principal point of reference is the Secretary of State," the letter read, "yet in many cases he's precisely the problem." Bertone's position also meant he presided over the Vatican Bank, a post he appeared to use to impede Benedict's financial reforms. > WP

    The Butler? (The pope's butler, Paolo Gabriele.)

    "Seeing evil and corruption everywhere in the church, I finally reached a point of degeneration, a point of no return, and could no longer control myself," Gabriele explained to Vatican investigators.

  • Pay No Bank Loans, Credit Cards, All Finance, Council Rates... Etc

    We have fun in our Facebook Group. We discuss both the Law and how we can use it to avoid the "Fraud" that the corporations of the world are involving us all in.

    Yes, it's slavery.

    What we have learned through research and from many others, is that (historically) and within the western world, Law (itself), must at all times - be supported by, a "crown".

    And that since at least 1302, (with Unam sanctam) the crown has been a single living sovereign man called, the Pope.

    We also feel that this current Pope (Francis) would like to see a world under him, get back to the basic fundamentals of Law:

    *Do no Harm

    *Do not Deceive

    We've also learned that "breaking the law" has no statute of limitations. Breaking Law is ad infinitum. (Nuremburg). There could never be any limitations on a matter that can be proven wasn't lawful to begin with. (ab initio. Adam and Eve.)

    It's the "power", of Law.

    The following query came from a member of the group:

    Sascha Planert writes:

    January 7 at 7:51pm

    "One of my friends is considering breaking out of their mobile phone contract as they cannot afford it. ... They however do not wish to pay the early termination charges associated with Cancelling the plan.

    ....... I work for her phone company and the only cases I am aware of when a customer's etc's have been waved are when said phone company has provided unsatisfactory service to a customer.

    Is there any way she could avoid paying the termination fees?"

    My immediate reply came:

    • She tells them that (at Law) this corporate 'fiction' CONtract no longer has and never did have any perceived "power" (that it has no crown backing, at Law), and that she (and we) will hold this man or, women personally and commercially LIABLE ... should she not be advised within 7 days, that the CONtract is now over. (And should she ever be hearing of any further to do with it, in times ahead.)

      It's that simple.

      Learn why it's unlawful?

      That they had no 'power' in law... and it's because, and as the video tells us (in real terms), that the "crown" the "royals" had, was always only 'on loan' from corrupt Popes [to commit fraud], throughout the centuries.

      And for a considerable financial arrangement in return, and as such it (all the "royals" were involved in), was all unlawful in what they did, Ab Initio. (As, they only had "pretend" power or, what was - a non existent sovereignty.)


      Bank Loans, Credit cards, all Finance, council Rates..etc

    • Ross Bradley .
      So all Bank (home) loans are all 'in the same boat' ... yet the current bank manager may not have been the initial man/women who committed the fraud knowingly or, unknowingly - and on behalf of the bank (being the corporation the loan was facilitated with or, on behalf of at the time), so he/she is not who that unlawful CONtract was made out, with.

      You tell him/her your existing manager of the fraudulent loan and (yes, surprise, surprise), that you now wish to close this fraudulent contract down.

      (As you are the living beneficiary of their Fraud Trust.)

      And that as the original loan was not from him/her (that it was a loan from the corporate bank), the bank (as my good Mate Gary points out within another thread), that as it was 'they' (the originator of that loan facility) who was party to or, actually invented the Fraud (and on behalf of the bank), that 'they' (the originator of that loan facility and the "bank"), can now get to all deal with the Lawful consequences in whatever way they may decide, among themselves.


      Because this fraudulent (deceptive) loan is no longer a problem of yours, is what you are firmly telling them. Full stop!

      So ...

      Please advise me in 7 days and in writing/with your wet ink signature that the loan no longer exists or, you yourself will become personally both commercially and fully liable for this fraud - and as has been pointed out to you. Thank you. (And you then hand them the "legal" advise, advising him/her, of all that - all that has been mentioned to him/her, in this meeting.)

      If he/she doesn't, you already have a "Commercial Lien" to use against them prepared (their law), ready to "serve" (and activate) on day # 8.



      • If I loan another my or, my brother's car for the purpose, so it can be used as part of committing a crime (they even pay me $$'s for it), and lets just say, as the "get-away" car in a hold-up robbery - I'm just as guilty as the actual robbers, as I've made a profit from the proceeds of crime.

        Disregarding the forfeit 'rules' (in my case), my brother is always and remains, the "owner" of that car. (As he knew nothing of the crime.)

        The "crown" power at law, in itself (and, from centuries of corrupt Popes/the Holy See, the Vatican), was only ever, always, on "loan" to the "royals".

        They were always only 'renting' the "crown car" to commit the fraud with. The crown is returned to the owner - and the Holy See, that then rids itself of the corrupt Pope (Benedict) and it remains just that, the "crown". (At law.)

    Always, only an opinion.


    ps; Those that get in the "queue" first ... will be those who will 'wisely' obtain the resources needed - for going forward.

  • Cactus Fuctus - The Queensland Election

    There are two real reasons only as to why any corporate government would want to be calling an early **cough** election.

    With the corporation being a "government" it only presents a change of the CEO and a number of high profile "yes/men/women", at best.

    (The election was due on or, before 24th of March following a three year term. This is the first time in over a century that an Australian general election is held in January.)

    The two reasons

    1- That they so dearly want to continue on for another term, feel they are going good and with Campbell Newman thinking people would be wanting 'more of the same' for another 3 years, when re-elected.


    2 - They want to lose the election. That they no longer want to have the right to be in (so called) power.

    If it was for reason No 1 and under the corrupt "system" that the Queensland corporate government are within and a part of, there'd be no need to go to the Polls. In a system of fraud, because they would win any next election and carry on regardless. And continue on giving people, more of the same.

    Yet, with reason No 2, it may well be that "the pennies have dropped" that all they have done and all they have already 'planned' for in the immediate future, has been unlawful?

    The realisation that they have acted without any real "crown" over them? Certainly since the end of February, early March of 2013.

    And in realising that, the "Fiction Of Law" no longer exists. That it (the Newman corporate government), no longer has any crown backing, at law. That (and, at best - at Law), they have reverted back to being ordinary men and women - all under the Law Of The other 193 Corporate States Of The UNITED NATIONS' corporation.

    The Queen? The Queensland constitution?

    We can forget about and all we have been told about, the Queen, about any CONstitution that you may want to mention- as QE2 "the Queen" (and in going back to the 1900's and "Queen Victoria" and well before-hand), had no such "crown" authority, in Law.

    You Tube:

    (click to enlarge)
    And it's because, and as the video tells us (in real terms), that the "crown" the "royals" had was always only "on loan" from corrupt Popes, throughout the centuries.

    And for a considerable financial arrangement in return, and as such it (anything the "royals" were involved in), was all unlawful in what they did, Ab Initio. (They but had, "pretend" power or, sovereignty.)

    Readers need to realise and assure themselves that all the corrupt Popes were never ever going to 'give away' that 'sovereign power' they had/have (and at least since 1302 and UNAM SANCTUM), and for any amount of money/gold/jewelry etc.. not even for 'all the tea in China'!

    So, the time arrives where even the Queen (@ 82 odd) had to board a plane her 1st in over 2 years and graciously 'informally' hand back the "crown" to the sovereign himself.

    Pope Francis and since the closing down of the Roman cult (in Feb/March 2013) would have invited her to visit. No one turns down an invitation from the sovereign himself. (Including Russia's Putin and Obama, who both did so, likewise.)

    Then came the news that the "crown" was no longer in the UK and that the Parliament itself, was heading over to the control of the EU.


    Back to "The Queensland Election" and those two reasons for an early election called here in the 'sunshine state' and as to just what is Campbell Newman's real reason for calling that early poll?

    It would be crazy of such an insignificant man like Newman to think that he, his Attorney General in Jarrod Bleijie and newly appointed Chief Justice Tim Camody could possibly be entrusted any longer to be champions of "justice" and true upholders of the law, always with separation of powers, Rule of Law, et al....

    It would be even more crazier to have even considered that these three musketeers could stand up much longer to the 'lawmaker' and virtually be saying that "we'll do it our way" without a strong 'coat tug' (a "tap on the shoulder") telling him it was time to arrange his own 'dismissal' ... and that a visit to Rome was not necessary.

    Always, only an opinion.


    ps; That term "Cactus fuctis" (in the Title) is best explained here:

    CACTUS:"In my snippet about the Australian expression last time, I had noted that there were no native cacti in that country.

    John Weiss pointed out that the prickly pear had been imported from the US in the early 1800s as stock fodder but had become a serious invasive pest in New South Wales and Queensland by the latter part of the nineteenth century.

    It was so well known he feels the expression was most certainly native.

    Many Australians wrote to make the same point Rob Coates did:

    "Sometimes the single word 'cactus' is used ... but it's generally recognised to be a shortening of 'cactus fuctus'.

    This is said as a pseudo-Latin phrase to bring a touch of wry humour to an otherwise unfortunate situation. For example, a mechanic, after inspecting the starter motor in your car might announce 'No wonder it won't start, mate - this is cactus fuctus!'"
