Evil Bugnini is In and Siri Out — +Marini Exiled to Tortona

 Pope Francis has appointed the Pontifical Master of Ceremonies Msgr. Guido Marini as Bishop of Tortona.  A signal.

 (Rome) Pope Francis has appointed the Papal Master of Ceremonies Msgr. Guido Marini,  Bishop of Tortona. It’s a step that is in line with the motu proprio Traditionis Custodes.  He will succeed the Bugnini ring bearer, Msgr. Vittorio Viola, who was appointed to the Roman Curia by Francis last May.

Speculations about the removal of Msgr. Marini from his office had already existed immediately after the election of Pope Francis.  Since then they have flared up repeatedly.  Msgr. Marini is, however, sociable, reserved and adaptable, after all, after being ordained diaconate, he served three archbishops of Genoa as secretary for 15 years.  In 2007 he was called by Pope Benedict XVI.  to Rome as his master of ceremonies to have a man in this position who suited his liturgical sensibility.  Yesterday his appointment as Bishop of Tortona was announced.

The castling that takes place at the head of the diocese makes it clear that Francis wants to pick up the pace in the area of ​​liturgical changes.  The previous bishop of Tortona was the Franciscan Msgr. Vittorio Viola.  Both Viola and Marini are proven experts in liturgical questions, but belong to different schools.  While Msgr. Guido Marini, not to be confused with the eponymous master of ceremonies of John Paul II, Piero Marini, comes from the school of Cardinal Giuseppe Siri, Msgr. Viola belongs to the school of Annibale Bugnini, the grand architect of the Novus Ordo, which was born in 1969  and introduced by Paul VI.

On May 27, Francis called Monsignor Viola to the Roman Curia and appointed him secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Order of the Sacraments.

A paradigm shift can be seen in the two personnel decisions for the diocese of Tortona: The Siri student Msgr. Marini is removed from the Vatican, while the Bugnini student Msgr. Viola is brought to the Vatican.  In short: Bugnini is in, Siri and tradition out.

The year 2021 is thus marked by a series of papal decisions on the liturgy:

—  the dismissal of Cardinal Robert Sarah as prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship;

—  the appointment of Bugnini ring bearer Msgr. Viola to the Congregation for Divine Worship;

— the promulgation of the Motu proprio Traditionis custodes against the traditional rite;

 — the dismissal of Monsignor Guido Marini as papal master of ceremonies.

And the year is not over yet.  The appointment of the new Pontifical Master of Ceremonies is eagerly awaited.  The master of ceremonies heads the office for the liturgical celebrations of the Pope and also plays a role in the conclave, the most important of which is the proclamation of the extra omnes and its implementation.  This means that all persons who are not allowed to vote for the Pope must leave the Sistine Chapel before it can begin.  After the extra omnes, access to the conclave is cordoned off.

Anyone who is appointed by Francis as the new master of ceremonies ensures that nothing of what happens in the conclave gets out.  In the age of digital technology and certain loosening, this is a central function, because Francis works to ensure the election of a successor that suits him.

The diocese of Tortona, which looks after almost 270,000 Catholics, in Liguria, is the home of the previous papal master of ceremonies.  He is thus a suffragan of the Archbishop of Genoa.

Medical Censorship

Dr. Peter McCullough on Medical Myths

Tuesday, August 31, 2021

Who rules us?

Patrick Coffin just keeps getting better.  It was only a short time ago that he was peddling Theology of the Bawdy and denouncing MadTrads.  EF can still point to flaws in his positions, but we can no longer imagine him hosting the porcine Mark Shea.

Corpulent Communist Wants to Limit Free Speech

Edit: this is why we need regular purges of Marxist frauds.

[Catholic and Enjoying It] So Amy Klobuchar wants to punish social media platforms that allow the spread of COVID disinformation:

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) introduced legislation Thursday to fight bogus medical claims online during health crises like the coronavirus pandemic. Her target: Section 230.

Klobuchar’s bill would carve out an exception to Section 230, the 1996 law that protects internet platforms from liability for content that users post, for health misinformation proliferating during public health emergencies — like the misinformation that has been running rampant about vaccines for Covid-19.

“We need a long term solution” that goes beyond removing accounts spreading falsehoods about the crisis, Klobuchar said. “This legislation will hold online platforms accountable.”.

Why it matters: Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have been pushing to amend or revoke theSection 230 statute — often for opposite reasons.Many congressional Democrats argue that social media platforms have leaned on Section 230 legal protections to flout responsibility for false and potentially dangerous content on their sites, like the medical misinformation that has undermined the uptake of Covid-19 vaccines.

The Biden administration is struggling to fight vaccination misinformation, a problem that has contributed to vaccine hesitancy and a plateau in inoculation rates at a time when the Delta variant is sweeping the country and the U.S. appears to be backsliding on recovery.

Klobuchar’s Health Misinformation Act of 2021, co-sponsored by Sen. Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.), is one attempt to address that, and it would extend beyond just the current crisis. Under the measure, tech platforms would be on the hook for propagating false or misleading health content during any public health emergency that has been declared as such by the secretary of Health and Human Services. The secretary, with input from experts and the leaders of other federal agencies, would be tasked with defining what qualifies as health misinformation.

Sedevacantist priest uses Catholic teaching to argue against vaccine mandates down in Ohio

This video of a priest’s testimony at the Ohio statehouse Tuesday has gone viral on social media, after the priest told a state legislature committee that he doesn’t recognize Pope Francis as the valid pope, while testifying in favor of a bill that would prohibit vaccine mandates.

In one video clip circulating on social media, the priest said that he doesn’t recognize Francis because “you have to be a Catholic to be the pope.”    ...... Continued..

The "vaccines" are failing.

Why is the world experiencing such a “prominent outbreak” of the Delta variant when so many people have been vaccinated?

Dr. Peter McCullough, a consultant, cardiologist and vice chief of medicine at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, addressed those questions and more on the “RFK Jr. The Defender Podcast.”

New research shows people who are vaccinated against COVID are more susceptible to the Delta variant, said McCullough, pointing to a pre-print study by the prestigious Oxford University Clinical Research Group published Aug. 10 in The Lancet.  Continued...

Jews Pull Reigns on Pet Pope

 Edit: they’re shameless, but Bergoglio is their creature. I expect they will have more than just these initiatives to make him act right. 

[Times of Israel] Rabbi Ratzon Arusi, the chair of the Chief Rabbinate’s Commission for Dialogue with the Holy See, has expressed concern over recent remarks by Pope Francis about Jewish law, Reuters report.

According to the report, Arusi sent a letter to the Vatican requesting clarification of comments the pope made to a general audience earlier this month.

On August 11, Francis spoke at the Vatican about the first five books of the Bible, known in Hebrew as the Torah. The pope referenced the biblical story of God giving the Torah to the Jewish people: “God offered them the Torah, the Law, so they could understand his will and live in justice. We have to think that at that time, a Law like this was necessary, it was a tremendous gift that God gave his people.”


Irish GP Cancelled for Speaking Out Against Vaxx

 Edit: these vaccines are so reliable that labcoats dissenting about their effectiveness get their credentials cancelled.

[Unity News Network UK]  A Londonderry GP has been suspended for comments she made about the Covid-19 vaccination programme.

Dr Anne McCloskey expressed concerns in a social media video about young people being given the Covid-19 vaccine.
The Health and Social Care Board (HSCB) said it was suspending Dr McCloskey “as a precautionary measure while it undertakes a full investigation”.
Dr McCloskey cannot work for the health service during that time.
The HSCB said that suspension was “not an automatic occurrence when undertaking an investigation”.
Dr McCloskey said in the video that there was not enough evidence that it was safe for young people to be vaccinated.
Dr McCloskey said she was “distraught” by the number of young people “damaged” by “unlicensed and unapproved” vaccines.
What do under-30s need to know about the vaccine?
She said many young people had been “coerced, bribed or bullied” into being vaccinated and that vaccines were “malevolent”.

Take our freedoms back!

It's 1984 already

Things are mounting to crash-level madness. Afghanistan is a complete fiasco (maybe the powers-that-be intended just that to happen? Part of a far bigger plan?). People are fed up. Even Donald Trump was booed at his mega-rally in Alabama when he tried to encourage people to get 'vaccinated'. I'm glad. Someone needs to get it through his head what's going on. (If the "vaccines" turn out to be half as half deadly as many are predicting, then Trump will be dead politically, but we'll have to wait for that to develop.) 

I see the FDA is going to approve the Pfizer "vaccine" as early as today, regardless of all the injury and death it causes, and regardless of the fact that Pfizer lost the "control group" and regardless of whatever "good" effects it is claimed to have, they're limited, and have to be propped up with continual "booster shots". I would expect a number of legal people to file emergency stay petitions with various courts. But once the FDA (as political an organization as any) gives its approval, suddenly government will have legal force to compel vaccination. 

Information from Israel, Norway, etc., i.e. heavily vaccinated countries, is revealing that the so-called "Delta variant" is NOT a product of the unvaccinated, but rather a product of the vaccinated. This is just incredible, but absolutely true. Yet, the forces of government grind ever on to force everyone to be "vaccinated".

The news from Australia and New Zealand is insane. Absolutely, purely insane. (Lots of video.) The police in Australia are beating more people than the Taliban are beating in Afghanistan. I read about a couple of runners, joggers, that were chased by a helicopter, chased to their home and the chopper stayed over their house, preventing their getting out again.  

Meanwhile, Australia's truckers are getting ready for a strike. They, the "Long-haul truck drivers, "are not permitted to stop and eat, or shower, or rest outside their vehicles by orders of the government." That is insane. So they're going to try a nationwide shutdown. 

Thousands have been arrested, shot with rubber bullets (nasty things, if you don't know; they're huge and dangerous) sprayed with tear gas or pepper spray, and so on. 60 people, the entire congregation at one church, were arrested. Absolute madness. And all this, according to world meters, for a total of 984 deaths (supposedly) due to Covid, or 38 per million. My friends, this is madness!

For just one great video of Aussie man-on-the-street interviews, click here. "You won't see this video in the mainstream media". The interviews begin at about 55 seconds in. At 7:08, especially, watch the Anglican priest's speech. Excellent!

The fact that these "vaccines" are abortion tainted obviously didn't bother him.


By Jack Phillips 

August 22, 2021 Updated: August 22, 2021

Civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson—who is fully vaccinated—and his wife, Jacqueline Jackson, were both hospitalized with COVID-19, according to a statement on Saturday.

Jesse Jackson, 79, received his first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine in January 2021 during a publicized event and urged others to get the vaccine as soon as possible. It’s not clear if his wife, who is 77, also got the vaccine.

Both are being treated at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, according to a statement from Jackson’s nonprofit, the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition. It did not provide an update on their status.

“There are no further updates at this time,” the statement said. “We will provide updates as they become available.”

Doctors, the group said, are “currently monitoring the condition of both” and added that “anyone who has been around either of them for the last five or six days should follow” guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) around testing and social distancing.

COVID-19 is the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.

Earlier this year, Jackson underwent surgery after being hospitalized for abdominal pain. In 2017, he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, a neurological disorder.

“Let us all pray for Rev. and Mrs Jesse Jackson. They need our sincere and intense prayers. Prayer changes things!!!” wrote MSNBC host Al Sharpton on Twitter.

As Jackson was fully vaccinated, his hospitalization is sure to trigger more questions about the vaccines’ efficacy in light of new COVID-19 variants. Last week, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said during a news conference there is “concerning evidence” that mRNA vaccine protection is “waning” against the so-called Delta strain.

In one study published by the CDC and cited by Walensky, the efficacy against infection has plummeted to 53.1 percent for both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. As a result, Walensky said that due to the waning effectiveness, the federal government is “planning for Americans to receive booster shots starting next month,” saying that their initiative is designed to “stay ahead of this virus.”

But the push to provide booster shots drew significant criticism from the World Health Organization, which said the plan would deprive poorer nations of vaccines. Some scientists and medical researchers who were previously vaccinated wrote on Twitter that they wouldn’t get the booster in light of the CDC announcement.

Earlier this month, one of the chief AstraZeneca vaccine developers, professor Andrew Pollard, said that gaining herd immunity with vaccines is “not a possibility” and that researchers and governments need to instead pivot to treatment methods.

Speaking to the UK Parliament, Pollard said that what the CCP virus “will throw up next is a variant which is perhaps even better at transmitting in vaccinated populations,” adding that it is “even more of a reason not to be making a vaccine program around herd immunity.”
