Tom Dilorenzo is, by the way, a brilliant defender of the Catholic faith. Unlike the pope, however, he's not a an ignoramus on things economic.
Great Article, Mepps. He nailed it!

A lot of my buddies are catholic(hence the Jameson affection)but they dont see this guys message more than socialist/leftist propaganda.I dont like big religion or government.Too big and the little guy gets screwed while the "leaders"fleece the flock.I dont see a need for a church to have billions in real estate,monies or corporate jets.Im not religous but would dare say Jesus wouldnt want his name associated with todays religous leaders.If I remember right he didnt care for the leaders of his time either.Probably wouldnt hang with me either but I wouldnt blame him or try to kill him unlike some.

Boehner was the best speaker of the house the democrats ever had. I wish bad things on people like them.Between that fake tan and being a crybaby over nothing and not having a spine I started to despise him pretty quick.
Im sure he will sleep well on our dime.

Re: The Pope is a Marxist Buffoon.

I find it all too suspicious that the MSM/Fed gov't is fawning all over him while he's preaching Marxism and Global warming to our Congress. Uhm..what the hell happened to separation of church and state?? Oh, I guess that only comes into play when it fits their agenda.

Freedom of speech?I disagree with him but as long as he is tolerant of other beliefs he can huff and puff his speeches all he wants.Ill bet if he preached against homosexuality,murdering babies and selling their parts,or alcohol/drug abuse or other issues in line with scripture but not in line with this administration he wouldnt be speaking here.Obama and Raul Castro welcomed him with open arms.Think about that.

This is exactly true and not only for the Pope but for all of us.

It is easy to lecture congress or our fellow and say "we want positive change without great personal sacrifice"

Instead of looking in the mirror and saying "I want positive change without great personal sacrifice"

Re: The Pope is a Marxist Buffoon.

We have really two problems in this country and he failed on both issues.

1 The fall of the family unit.
Broken families and millions of illegitimate children are the root cause of so many problems in this country. Crime, poor education, unemployable people and over crowded prisons are all direct results of the "fall of the family unit"
As the Pope, this should be his number one objective. He did not even touch on this issue. "Fail"

2 Corrupt politicians and a corrupt political system leading to a horribly run and inificiant government.
Rather than condemn this continued and growing monster he has partnered with it, taken sides and is pushing an agenda....Basically he has sold his soul. "Fail"

Re: The Pope is a Marxist Buffoon.

This deserves its own thread, but it fits perfectly here. This is why Pope Francis' political and economic philosophy is a threat to civilization; (Warning- Adult Content. If you regularly watch network news, you may lack sufficient attention span and vocabulary to enjoy this.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2015/09/...l-neanderthal/

By the way, I was mixing up my authors earlier. I was thinking of Tom Woods when I pasted Tom Di Lorenzo's article. Both are terrific authors.

If you want to understand where the thing we know as Western Civilization got its start, read this; http://tomwoods.com/books/how-the-ca...-civilization/

I don't know if Tom Woods (the Catholic thinker and writer and excellent apologist) has posted any "The Pope Is a Booger-Brain" articles, but I'm sure he's thinking it.

The Fascist Pope
By Thomas DiLorenzo
May 1, 2017
Email Print
FacebookTwitterShare

Fresh off a hate-filled rant against populism (a.k.a. consent of the governed), Pope Francis recently delivered another mean-spirited, hateful diatribe about the “grave risks associated with the invasion of . . . libertarian individualism at high strata of culture and in university education.” He said this before the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, as reported by Breitbart.com.

This is exactly the opposite of reality regarding university education: University education has been almost completely taken over by the pope’s fellow leftists whose true “religion” is cultural Marxism, or left-wing political correctness. He must be the only person on the planet who thinks universities are hotbeds of libertarianism. When it comes to spewing hatred toward free markets, economic freedom, limited constitutional government, and other non-socialist ideas, reality apparently has no relevance to Pope Francis.

Time to buy old US gold coins

The pope is an Argentinian Peronist, which is to say, he is a fascist. Juan Peron was the fascist ruler of Argentina whose brand of national socialism involved restricted international trade, wage-and-price controls, seizure of private property, nationalized industries, and spending lavishly in fine Keynesian fashion by printing mountains of currency. The inevitable economic ruination led to his being deposed by a military coup in 1955, after which Argentina continued to print money for decades to bail out its disastrous government regime, creating 12,000 percent hyper-inflation by the 1980s.

Only the “libertarian” ideas of the virtues of private property, markets, and economic freedom – the ideas that the pope routinely denounces with a passionate hatred – could have prevented the destruction of the Argentinian economy. He seems to think that the only problem with Peron was that he didn’t go far enough with his brand of socialism (fascism – “national” socialism in the twentieth-century German variety — being just another variety of socialism, as Friedrich Hayek explained in detail in The Road to Serfdom).

In his latest attack on free societies the pope denounced libertarianism as a “selfish ideal” and a “fallacious paradigm that minimizes the common good.” Libertarianism teaches that “only the individual gives value to things,” said the Argentinian fascist. He then repeated every collectivist’s mantra that “the libertarian individual denies the value of the common good.” For good measure, he also threw in the standard leftist line that freedom supposedly causes the “marginalization of the more vulnerable majority.” Unlike the fate of the “vulnerable majority” in that Latin American socialist utopia of Venezuela, for instance.

Of course, “the common good” is a completely meaningless phrase since it implies that there exists some kind of unanimous agreement on what it is. In reality, it is simply the opinion of totalitarian-minded statists like Pope Francis who use such language in an attempt to bully others into acquiescing in their statist ideology. It is an attempt at censorship, in other words. If you disagree with them, you are an enemy of society because you oppose “the common good,” as they define it, for allegedly selfish reasons.

The notion that the “common good” should supersede all else was the hallmark idea of twentieth-century fascism. The “25-Point Program of the Nazi Party, published in 1925, proclaimed that the whole Nazi program was based on the principle, printed in all capital letters, of

“COMMON GOOD BEFORE INDIVIDUAL GOOD.” “The Aryan is not greatest in his mental qualities,” Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf, “but in his noblest form he willingly subordinates his own ego to the community and, if the hour demands, even sacrifices it” (Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, Houghton Mifflin 1943 edition, p. 126). Contemporary fascists like Pope Francis continue to repeat this evil mantra.

The twentieth-century fascists understood that they must first discredit the ideas of libertarianism, which were known as “classical liberalism,” before they could get a large portion of the public to embrace their brand of socialism. In his book, Fascism: Doctrine and Institutions (p. 10), Benito Mussolini wrote that “The fascist conception of life stresses the importance of the State and accepts the individual only in so far as his interests coincide with the State. It is opposed to classical liberalism [which] denied the State in the name of the individual” (emphasis added). This is identical to what Pope Francis said in his latest attack on the free society.

Mussolini also pontificated that it was “unnatural” for government to protect individual rights, as classical liberalism, or libertarianism, contends. “The maxim that society exists only for the well-being and freedom of the individuals composing it does not seem to be in conformity with nature’s plans,” he wrote. “If classical liberalism spells individualism, then Fascism spells government,” wrote the Italian dictator.

In The Road to Serfdom Hayek discusses the age-old collectivist hatred of “individualism” by reminding his readers that, historically, all classical liberals ever meant by “individualism” is simply respect for the individual, for individual human life in general, period. One would think that that is something a pope would embrace instead of denouncing in a speech in which he sounds more like a Vladimir Lenin or a Fidel Castro than the Vicar of Christ.

The German fascists also fully understood that libertarianism, or classical liberalism, was their mortal enemy. One of the intellectual inspirations of German fascism was Paul Lensch, author of Three Years of World Revolution. In it (p. 176) he explained that the “problem” with too many Germans of his day was that they “unconsciously reason from English standards.” By that he meant that too many Germans had embraced the philosophy of classical liberalism. Lensch sneered at such ideas as “their political notions of ‘freedom’ and ‘civic right,’ of constitutionalism and parliamentarianism, derived from that individualistic conception of the world, of which English liberalism is a classical embodiment . . .” (emphasis added).

These ideas of “old-fashioned [classical] liberalism” have been “shattered,” the Nazi theorist gloated. What “has to be done now is to get rid of these inherited political ideas . . . . Socialism must present a conscious and determined opposition to individualism.” Pope Francis would undoubtedly agree.

Re: The Pope is a Marxist Buffoon.

Yet on more of a long list of things that Putin and I agree on.

Putin: ‘Pope Francis Is Not A Man Of God’

Baxter Dmitry
1 day ago
Putin has slammed Pope Francis for “pushing a political ideology instead of running a church”, and warned that the pope is not a "man of God."
President Putin has slammed Pope Francis for “pushing a political ideology instead of running a church”, and warned that the leader of the Catholic Church “is not a man of God.”


“Pope Francis is using his platform to push a dangerous far-left political ideology on vulnerable people around the world, people who trust him because of his position,” Putin said.

“If you look at what he (the Pope) says it’s clear that he is not a man of God. At least not the Christian God. Not the God of the Bible,” Putin said at the Naval Cathedral of St. Nicholas in Kronstadt.

“He dreams of a world government and a global communist system of repression.

“As we have seen before in communist states, this system is not compatible with Christianity.”

putin-patriarch-kirril
President Putin tours the Naval Cathedral of St Nicholas with Patriarch Kirill.
The pope has become increasingly brazen this year in pushing the globalist agenda and far-left talking points upon the masses. Earlier this year he called for a global central bank and financial authority, and more recently he said “Americans need to be ruled by a world government as soon as possible for their own good.”

Pope Francis’s idea that Americans would be better off under a world government doesn’t stop there. The radical leftist pontiff also went on record stating that Europe should become one country under one government.

He is also on record calling for a China-style one child policy for Western nations, as well as telling a congregation in Rome that having a personal relationship with Jesus is “dangerous and harmful.”

While Putin is a practicing Christian, he is not a Roman Catholic, and the pope is not his leader. According to his recent statements, President Putin does not even consider Pope Francis to be Christian.

The Russian president is rarely openly critical of foreign leaders, instead preferring to use diplomacy to win people over to his side. However notorious globalists including George Soros, Jacob Rothschild and Bill Gates have received tongue lashings before, and now Pope Francis has joined their company.

Pope Francis is trying to lay the groundwork for a global communist government. President Putin is wise to his ruse and has called him out on it. It’s time for more world leaders to tell the pope to stay in his own lane.
