We need a Political Crusade against the Corona Madness

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

It is good to see that, in the last 2 weeks, more and more voices are speaking up against the Corona Stunt, the Corona Hype, the Corona Panic and the Corona Control.

Jim Hoft, writing for the GatewayPundit.com, lists the deaths and economic destruction resulting from these 4 horsemen of the apocalypse, and sums up the damage succinctly:

The China coronavirus is the worst April Fools joke ever – it is devastating and evil.

(For those unfamiliar, with USA culture: April Fools jokes are pranks or misleading statements given out in jest on the first day of April each year).

His essay is entitled, APRIL FOOLS: China Coronavirus Insanity by the Numbers – Data Makes No Sense as Entire Industries and Millions of Lives Are Destroyed.

He follows up his commentary, with a report, that estimates 831,000 suicides might result, in the U.S.A. alone, due to the economic destruction of shutting down the USA with Corona Control (stay at home measures).

John Hoft adds his voice to eminent doctors of medicine, such as: Dr. Shiva Ayyaduri, Dr. Jayanta Bhattacharya, Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, Dr. Claus Koehnlein, and Dr. John P.A. Ioannidis to statisticians like William M. Briggs,to philosophers such as Prof. Francesco Lamendola, commentators such as Aaron Ginn, and top world class researchers such as Kenji Mizumoto, Katsushi Kagaya, and Gerardo Chowell.

Numerous others, before and after March 15, when I did, have called out the lie that the Coronavirus will kill 3.4% of those infected.

Corona Stunt > Corona Hype > Corona Panic > Corona Control

For these reasons, there is more than sufficient evidence for sane persons to oppose the claim that Coronavirus is an existential threat to mankind. This false claim is the Corona Stunt.

And since that is a lie, there is no moral reason to pretend that Coronavirus is such and seek to constantly preach that lie. This pretense and concerted effort to lie, is the Corona Hype.

Thus, too, the fear and dread that has been instilled in the human race on account of the Corona Hype is completely without reason.  This fear and dread is the Corona Panic.

Finally, this panic is causing leaders in the Church and State to take actions which are depriving the masses of their natural and divine rights, and in many cases also their legal and constitutional rights. These measures to make us all stay at home or stop working is the Corona Control.

Humanity must counter with logic, facts and forcefulness

When men fall into a panic, they lose their reason and start harming themselves and others. We are currently in a diabolic world wide panic, and those of us who have kept our reason have to now take strong measures to call our leaders back to sanity.

This means, that we must call our Mayors, Governors, and political representatives in State, Provincial or National Assemblies to speak with them about what these voices of sanity, which I have cited above, and many others, are saying about the reality of what Coronavirus is NOT, how wrong it is for the Main Stream Media to be hyping it up, how evil it is to instill panic and how dangerous panic is to society and government. Finally, how the measures to control the population are the wrong response.

For only if we stop acting like sheep to be herded into a dark age of tyranny, will we be able to recover freedoms which we have just entirely lost, not to mention, prevent grave economic and demographic damage to the entire human race.

Now is the time for courageous action. We need to start a movement with the zeal of Pro-Lifers and the tenacity of the most zealous political organizations. And it must be directed against the the Corona Stunt, the Corona Hype, the Corona Panic and the Corona Control. It must target leaders with information, it must refute the lies, it must expose the perpetrators and it must insist against the control which is damaging all living, for the sake of hypothetical fraction of percentage of the whole.

How to celebrate Holy Week in the Catacombs

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

A large part of the Catholic world will be deprived of the sacred celebrations of Holy Week, this year, due to the lack of courage and zeal of many clergy in the face of COVID-19. I have previously given my opinion about how ceremonies can still be conducted with the faithful, so I will omit repeating myself here.

Instead, I would offer here some suggestions about how to commemorate the Passion and Death of Our Lord for those who are shut out of Church, and find themselves, in a certain sort of way, like hermits in a hermitage without a priest, who have no opportunity for the Sacraments.

First of all, I recommend reciting the entire Divine Office for Holy Week, beginning with Vespers for Palm Sunday. You can find these in the original Latin, with translations in English, French, German, Italian, Magyar, Portuguese, and Polish, at DivinumOfficium.com. This is a wonderful site, already used by many clergy, since it has the texts in a format adapt to desk top computers, mobile devices, tablets, etc., and allows you the option of choosing any one of the approved texts from the time of the Council of Trent to the reforms of 1962.

Second, I recommend taking the time you have, quarantined in your homes, to read all Four Gospels cover to cover. Whether you have already done so, or not, in your life, because now more than ever we need to hold fast to the words of Jesus Christ and His teaching, and refresh ourselves and the Fountain of Salvation. Do this prayerfully and silently, and let it be your Lectio Divina, like a monk in his monastic cells, contemplating higher and better things.

Third, I recommend that in your homes you gather together to recite the Most Holy Rosary. Either 5 decades a day, or better yet, all 15, by reciting 5 decades in the morning, 5 decades at Noon, and 5 decades in the evening. This would be a wonderful way of living the Faith together this Holy Week.

Fourth, I recommend that you watch as little or no TV as possible. Taste for this one week, as if on a retreat in a Monastery, how beautiful life is without the TV and Radio running non stop. Instead, I highly recommend enthroning an Image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary in your home. If you have a printer, print one out. If you have a holy card use that. If you have neither, find and image on the web, and display it on your device, and make the enthronement as if you could post one in your home. Jesus and Mary will understand. Or if someone can draw, have them draw such images. This is a wonderful project for children.

Fifth, for those who can, I encourage you to join in the Perpetual Supplica or  Devotions of Bl. Emmerich at the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, which I publish every night — and God-willing, with another 160 subscribers, live soon! Blessed Emmerich was inspired by God to rise at midnight every night and pray with her arms in the form of the Cross for the Church. That is why I call them the Devotions of Bl. Emmerich.

Sixth, on Holy Thursday and Good Friday, I highly recommend reading out-loud, together with those with whom your reside, the texts of the Gospels for the Passion of Our Lord. This is a blessed way of reliving the events of Our Salvation and making the remembrance of all which Our Lord did and said and suffered vividly alive once again, in your families.

Seventh, I encourage you to make many acts of sorrow and penitence for your sins and to resolve every more firmly and resolutely to sin nor more and to serve the Lord Jesus. Spend at least 15 minutes each day in silent prayer, alone in your room, and speak to the Lord and His Saints in your own words. Ask for the grace and light and virtue the actual graces to do His will, to govern your homes in a manner pleasing to Him. Ask especially for His blessing upon your family and His protection.

The liberty of mankind is founded upon this fact…

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Absolute tyranny has its limits.

You cannot control everyone in all things at all times and in all places, because then you would need more police than there are citizens.

And in this, the liberty of mankind has its practical basis: there are always more of us than of the tyrants and their allies in tyranny.

Forcing everyone to stay at home, however, is one of the more brilliant acts of tyranny. Because shut in your house, you are denied in an absolute manner all rights to free assembly. And in a certain sense, all rights to free speech.

Yes, being shut in your house denies you free speech, because of what value is it, if no one hears you? And what kind of freedom do you really have, if everything you say has to be done through a medium which can be policed by super-fast AI programmed computers? a few of which can watch all humanity simultaneously.

This is why the Corona Hype is the perfect instrument of a brave new world of tyrants. And the psychopathic narcissistic political leaders of our age, in Church and State, are glorying in it. That is why the love extending the deadlines.

And personally I think we should all have a healthy doubt that the deadlines will ever end.

We might very well see a World War III begin, not with arms and bullets, but with bio-weapons released by this or that country which either wants more panic, so that their leaders can exact more servitude from the masses, or because they want to take revenge on the countries they perceived caused the Wuhan virus.

But our strength lies in this: they cannot monitor what you say with your voice, apart from your phone and the internet. They cannot watch everyone in every neighborhood. They cannot know how you are organizing your neighborhood. And if neighborhood after neighborhood resists the Hype and resists control, they will lose control very quickly.

From a simple point of view of truth and honesty, the world leaders who are promoting and implementing Corona Hype and Corona Panic and Corona Control need to be removed from power. They are now the real enemies of humanity. And the threat they pose is both imminent and existential.

How much more until you admit that we are in the Great Apostasy?

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

How many more heresies, blasphemies, sacrileges, idolatries and profanations have to be uttered or committed at the Vatican?

How many more churches have to be shuttered?

How many more Bishops have to order their priests to stop being priests?

How many more Catholics have to be denied the sacraments by State and Church?

How many more absurd excuses do you need to hear from your Bishop or Pastor about how this is all for your good?

How many more Catholics need to tell you a winter flue is worse than going to Hell because you cannot get to Confession?

How many more priests have to totally and utterly spurn you spiritual welfare?

How much more of this, until you admit we are in the Great Apostasy?

The Great Apostasy according to the fathers of the Church is the great falling away which Saint John the Apostle prophesied in the twelfth chapter of the Book of Revelations, when he saw the dragon with its tail sweep a third of the stars from heaven and cast them down to the earth. The Fathers of the Church say that those stars represent the clergy. And their being swept out of the heavens is the biblical way of saying they will abandon their sacred ministry.

Oh, and for all those Catholics out there, who think Pope Benedict XVI is no longer the pope, because they bought into the Big Lie that a renunciation of ministry is the same thing as a renunciation of office, please tell me now, if you pope and your bishops and your priests have or have not renounced their offices, in renouncing their ministry to you?

I would love to hear the discombobulated reasons to explain that away….

Oh, and since it its the tail OF the dragon who does this, tell me who is the tail and who is the dragon?

True knowledge and true sight

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The most horrid thing about modern culture is how spiritual blind it is and how spiritually blind it makes those who accept it.

Our Holy Faith’s fundamental purpose is to liberate us from this blindness. But it seems wherever one goes, whether Europe or Australia or North America there is not much difference in the personal vision of Catholics who profess to believe and pagans who profess not to believe.

What value is it to you, anyway, to live as the world proposes to you to live your life? The only thing this world promises in the end is death and taxes.

The truly prudent man considers what is eternal and what is the safest way to reach that goal, and puts his trust in the Lord Jesus, Who said, “Follow me”.

In recent decades one has seen the disintegration of religious life. This has shocked many. But for us religious who seek the Kingdom of Heaven, it came as no surprise, because monks and friars everywhere for the last 60 years have openly expressed little or no interest in Eternal Salvation.

So distant and foreign is this concept, that its difficult to convince anyone to believe or pray, let alone support a monastic foundation. Still harder to join one.

Indeed, its no exaggeration to say that 99% of those who knock on the doors, today, of religious orders are not inspired by Jesus Christ. They are just sodomites who want to live with men and pretend to be holy. I say this on the basis of talking to vocation directors who say they have to turn away 99 out of 100 applications, upon application or during the temporary formation.

Till the rank and file Faithful return to living for God, purely for love of God, and turn aside from the slavery of living according to the world’s standards, they will not be able to collaborate with God to raise up true vocations to save the Church. For the true Catholic family is the first seminary of those vocations who will save the Church.

The Letters of Archbishop Viganò opened the eyes of many Friars, who for years struggled to keep the Observance and hold fast to the true Faith amid near universal opposition from above and from their peers. Now we understand better that we erred fundamentally in considering these our friends. To that extent, new possibilities for religious life are opened, since we can see better why having anything to do with such false friends is such a waste of time. And so, faithful religious can go forward and make new foundations. They need only the support of Catholics who have the same realistic vision of the Church’s problems.

The Myths of Wuhan: how numbers were exaggerated to justify imprisoning 57 million Chinese

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

In a scenario which was first executed in China but which has now come to your country, the response to the Wuhan Virus has been eerily similar and it has been the same one as the Marxist Dictatorship of China.

Wake up to the brave new world order, in which you live!

We have heard weeks on end of propaganda about the horrible plague in Wuhan, which has killed untold numbers of individuals.

But the facts show that int he 4th quarter of 2019, the total number of deaths, counted by burials, was only 1583 higher than the same period in 2018!  And this for a city of 16 Million! This, statistically, is only an increase of 2.8%, on a death rate that is only 1.4 per hundred annually. Not even a blip by the numbers — though we cannot discount the tragedy of even one human life lost.

So to prevent 1583 deaths, the Dictatorship of Peking ordered the largest act of de facto imprisonment in world history: 57 million persons were confined to their homes in Hubei province!

In Archeology we know this: you can fake estimate upon estimate of statistics about population and sickness. But if you cannot find the graves, then the truth is rather quite different.

Admittedly those burial stats are for the last Quarter of 2019. The information is not yet in for 2020.

But what is proven and undeniable is, however, the imprisonment of several billion human beings. The foe, a virus which is as much as 1/10 as lethal as the common winter flu.

Perhaps the leaders of the world have gone mad. But it might just be that those who lobby them to make decisions which benefit this industry or that, have been overly effective.

But what industry would that be? Hmmmmmm.

Even if no more people die, I think we will be seeing a massive push in every nation for new laws to empower the World Health Organization to take control of sovereign nations in the next pandemic. New laws to require that we all get vaccinated for Coronavirus. And new regulations that we cannot leave our homes, work, or engage in any economic activity without certifying that we, like all livestock, are healthy and disease free.

Welcome to the cowardly new world of population management. What is next, sterilizing us secretly with vaccines to reduce the world to 500 Million? Nah, that would be a conspiracy theory, except for the fact, that it was already tried in Kenya.

The clergy’s reaction to the COVID-19 stunt demonstrates their apostasy from Christ

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

There are a lot of holy Bishops and priests right now who are doing all they can to bring the Sacraments and God’s graces to the faithful during the world-wide Corona panic. And, sadly, most of the clergy do not realize the panic is a political stunt willed to promote the agenda of globalists.

However, the clergy who think the viral threat is real, are, apart from these courageous and heroic priests, showing themselves to be utter apostates from the Catholic religion, in this, that they are not reacting in any supernatural manner to the perceived threat.

This has palpably revealed to the entire world and to the Catholic Faithful, if they have eyes to see it, that Vatican II and all its reforms was just another stunt. All the propaganda to push the so-called reforms was promoted by a clergy who cannot even get the courage to open the windows of their rectories to give a blessing or absolution during the Corona lock-down!

It is just stunning, how, here at Rome for example, you can go into a Church and see a priest saying his breviary, and he has much less concern about your being there to receive a Sacrament during, what many think is the imminent death of everyone by a virus, as he would have for a mouse which entered the church. At least he would chase the mouse!  But no! the only sin left is violating social-distancing! The Book of the Gospels has been dumped into the trash-can of political correctness!

I personally cannot imagine how they can dare pray to God!

I hope you can see what this means for the Church. And I hope you can see that it is your duty to preach repentance to the clergy and remind them that they will surely be damned for this treachery against their priestly duties to save souls., if they do not.

I could understand their personal fear if they have AIDS. But if that is their excuse before God, then they should admit it before men and resign, because if they have AIDS they should not be administering the sacraments, because they are highly infectious with a virus which is dozens of times more fatal than the COVID-19, which it appears they are afraid of contracting from you!

God willing this panic comes to an end. But you should NOT forgive your local priest who betrayed you, UNTIL he publicly asks for forgiveness. Because no where in the Gospel did God ask us or require us to forgive someone without a sign of repentance. And since those members of the clergy who will not repent, will be damned, asking them to repent is the greatest charity you can show them in the post corona-hyped world.

Anti-pope greeted by hordes of adoring followers

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The title of this editorial is deliberately sarcastic. Just look at the Featured Image above* which shows a completely empty Saint Peter’s Square. Something never before seen in the history of the the square, that is, in something like 1600 years.

What you are seeing is called the Church of Darkness. A Church which shuts down all the Sacraments, forbids the Catholic Faithful from attending, invents excuses for the necessity of the public acts of Catholic Religion and holds a prayer service in an empty piazza for the sake of journalists who will report it to the world.

You really cannot get more upside down and inside out of a Church than that!

Hopefully, you still have eyes to see the reality. If that is not the Church of Christ, then since Bergoglio is its visible head, he must not be the Vicar of Christ.

A lot of Catholics have been telling you that for 7 years. Maybe now you can see it.

Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich saw this Church of Darkness 200 years ago. And in a mystical vision, Our Lady promised us that She would deliver the world from it, if we but showed Her that we wanted to be delivered from it. This small sacrifice She asked of us is a simple prayer, which I call the Perpetual Supplica to Our Lady, you can read about it and follow along, through this link. But each night at midnight, Rome time, you can join me for it at the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, virtually, through YouTube, here.

Subscribe to my YouTube channel and click the Bell symbol next to the subscription button to get an email for each video I publish, as soon as they go public.

This is Our Lady’s Prayer solution to the preset problem. Let us be faithful children of Her and respond!

Corona pandemic is a crime against Humanity

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The Corona pandemic is a crime against humanity, which has killed 10s of thousand and put into a state of unwarranted panic leaders of many nations, causing some of them, who were intentionally pushed by Coronal Hype to destroy their national economies by quarantining their entire populations.

The number of victims who have died from Corona virus may be as high as reported, today, at 24,842 deaths (source), though many other reports show than less than that died from corona virus, the others died with it.

The resulting quarantine, individual or national, and the Hype has also caused suicides (here, here, and here and undoubtedly many others).

The panic which ensued from the hype and the release of the biowarfare agent is causing homicides by intentional medical neglect to resuscitate patients (here, and planned here).

The damage to national economies is staggering. The UN estimates it will be at least 1 Trillon dollars. The misappropriation of tax payers dollars by national political leaders might reach 7 more Trillion.

For all these reasons, I believe every human being on the face of the planet has the legal right to insist that their national governments investigate the causes of the coronavirus pandemic and the corona virus Hype, both formal causes of the effects which I have just listed.

Those responsible need to be brought to justice before a world tribunal for crimes against humanity. Indeed, the greatest crime against humanity perpetrated simultaneously against the whole world.

And there is already a lot of circumstantial evidence about just who these criminals might be. The 7 Trillion in national appropriates to respond to coronavirus must unwittingly be going to fund just those organizations. If so, the Corona Pandemic was the biggest single terrorist-extortion attack on the human race in the entire history of mankind.

LifeSite News picks up story from FromRome.Info on Bilderberg connection to Coronavirus

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

It is good to see that other Catholic Media are beginning to think about the Corona Hype.

And in this editorial I want to publicly praise Dorothy Cummings McLean, for doing that, in her report of March 26 for LifeSiteNews, entitled, One World Government needed to cope with Covid-19, says former British PM. She writes:

The Guardian reported that Brown would have liked the U.N. Security Council to have been invited to an emergency online meeting of the G20 countries today. The meeting, hosted by Saudi Arabia, is tackling the issue of the novel coronavirus.  

“This is not something that can be dealt with in one country,” Brown said. 

“There has to be a coordinated global response.”

Later on in her article she addresses the implication that the former Prime Minister was an invited member of the Bilderberg.

FromRome.Info reported on March 25, that the association of the Bilderberg group with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are the likely architects of the Corona Panic. In that lengthy editorial, I traced out how the Corona Hype is a likely instrument of the Bilderberg objective for global domination.

To vindicate the dead: The Spanish Influenza at Philadephia in 1918

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

I am horrified.

I am horrified at Rorate Caeli that they would stoop so low as to encourage the faithful to go without the Sacraments! And to justify the decision of superiors in Church and State who want to shut down the Catholic Church!

I am especially horrified at the shell game perpetrated by Father Carl Gismondi, FSSP, in his Op-Ed, entitled, Suspending Public Mass is not new, where he cites the example of Philadephia during the Spanish Flu of 1918 as a precedent for closing churches today round the world.

I am personally very incensed. I am such, because my family comes from Philadelphia and lived their during the Spanish Flu Epidemic which struck the city in October of 1918. My great uncle Antonio Cafeo died in that Epidemic.

My grandfather Giovanni Cafeo told me about it, when I was discussing with him one day, nearly 40 years ago, how he survived the Spanish Flu Epidemic. He nearly died himself. He caught it while working as a barber in the U.S. Army in France, as an enlisted soldier. They had to move him to a hospital on the French Coast near Nantes, where he convalesced for 3 months.

I asked him then, about his brothers. It was then he told me that I had a great uncle, who died in the epidemic: Antonio, my grandfather’s older brother. He died at the age of around 28 years. He was a violinist, and very close to my grand dad. I could see in the face of my grandfather the profound love and attachment he had for his brother, even 70 years later, when he spoke of Antonio, briefly though, because it was such a great sorrow to him, that he did not want to remember it for long. I asked him what happened to Antonio. “He got very sick and they took him away. I visited him, but they later told me he had died.”

So I am astounded at Father Gismondi, that he should cite the example of Philadelphia in the Influenza of 1918 to justify the monstrosity of mania which has gripped the Bishops of the world over a virus which is not even as lethal as the common winter flu!

In his article, he cites a book for reference: a book which condemns him and the bishops of today. That book is entitled, The Work of the Sisters during the epidemic of influenza, October 1981, by  Francis Edward Tourscher. It recounts the heroism of the Catholic religious who ministered to the sick during the epidemic which gripped the city of Philadephia in 1918. I do not know, where my great uncle was cared for or died, but I like to think it was in a bed under the care of these truly saintly women.

Well the point of my objection to Father Gismondi is this. From reading the book you can see that the sick were brought the sacraments of Eucharist, Penance, Baptism and Extremunction (cf. p. 29). And that public funerals were celebrated. Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament was still celebrated (p. 23). Seminarian dug graves for the poor (p. 19). Masses were still said with the people.

And if priests were doing all these things for the sick and dying, is Father Gismondi trying to convince us that they were NOT doing these also for the living?

There is absolutely no comparison to be made. The death rates from coronavirus are minuscule. There are not as many confirmed dead in the entire world from coronavirus as there were in Philadelphia from the Spanish Flu of 1918!

As can be seen from the book cited by Fr. Gismondi, p. 53, the death rates were 75% in 1918, as compared to the latest statistics in Italy and the USA of 1-2%.

But as regards the closing of the Churches, the author of the Book cited, Mr.Tourcher discusses this on p. 111 in the appendix. The Churches were NOT locked, attendance at private masses on Sundays or weekdays were NOT forbidden (p. 112), visits to the Blessed Sacrament continued normally. For two Sundays, Masses were celebrated in the open air (p. 112). The order of “closing” lasted only 3 weeks (p. 112).

Is what this book recounts sufficient support for Fr. Gismondi’s argument. Hardly. Rather, it is deeply offensive to the heroic example of the Catholic priests and religious sisters who served so heroically and who had more Catholic faith in their little finger than most of the clergy today combined, who are cowards and lackeys running like little girls as from a bear, which is nothing more than a mouse!

For more information about Philadelphia during the Spanish Flu of 1918, see, 100 years ago, “Spanish flu” shut down Philadelphia — and wiped out thousands, which was published by the Voice on Sept. 27, 2018, from which I have taken the screen shot which is used as the Featured Image here in my editorial.

Did Bill Gates ask Bergoglio to shut down the Catholic Church?

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo, Editor

As a reader of FromRome.Info, you may have noticed that I try to emphasize reports which connect the dots — that is, which show the relationships between cause and effect, and try to discern the cause of effects and demonstrate the effects of causes.

I do this, because as as student in middle school, I recognized that only when you understand causes and effects do you really begin to understand.

Investigating the Corona Hype

At the beginning I believed the hype on Coronavirus. Because like most people, you just do not hold as a default that everyone in the Media would all lie about something in the same way at  the same time for some purpose. But thanks to you readers, I took a look at the facts and that opened my eyes.

For that reason, I have recently published for you a series articles about the Corona Hype, which show that the panic being pushed by the World Health Organization and National leaders is not based on the real threat of COVID-19, the natural mortality of which world wide is much lower than the normal winter flue in the principle nations of the earth. For all the articles on Corona Virus, see here.

This led me to take the editorial position against the hype, on March 16, in my Editorial pledging to oppose it.

Reflecting on this, I began to recognize the true story here was the universal, unquestioning and dogmatic hype regarding a phenomenon which medically did not deserve such panic-mongering.

As an anthropologist — B. A. University of Florida, Gainesville, 1986 — I know that in such human events, the causes are human beings. Specifically, the causes arise among individuals asking or advising one another to act in response to certain events. For this reason, I owe a big thanks to the lady who goes by the Nick, The Amazing Polly, for encouraging me to question what was going on, from the point of view of the human event of the Corona Hype.

As a son of Saint Maximilian Kolbe, I know that when it comes to the manipulation of the masses, one must look at Freemasonry and the many organizations which are founded upon promoting lies so as to rule by mendacity. For this reason, I already knew much of what Alex Jones reported more than 10 years ago, about the Bilderberg Group. But his report was prophetic, in a sense, because therein he explains in a way easily understood, just what the global network of elites want to do and how they are achieving their plans. See his movie, the End Game, a link to which you can find here in the middle of the Article.

Did the Bilderberg Meeting in 2019 plan Corona Hype?

One of the important lessons you can learn from Jone’s, Endgame, is that the Bilderberg Group plans world events in advance and executes them through a myriad of organizations each of which is controlled by a Bilderberg agent in that organization, whether private, national, or ecclesiastical.

If you want to understand, then, the ultimate cause of the Corona Panic, it pays to take a look at last year’s agenda for the Bilderberg Meeting in 2019.  Let me quote from their official press release, on the agenda for their 2019 meeting. Their words, not mine:

MONTREUX, 28 MAY 2019 – The 67th Bilderberg Meeting will take place from 30 May – 2 June 2019 in Montreux, Switzerland. About 130 participants from 23 countries have confirmed their attendance. As ever, a diverse group of political leaders and experts from industry, finance, academia, labour and the media has been invited. The list of participants is available on bilderbergmeetings.org.

The key topics for discussion this year are:

1. A Stable Strategic Order
2. What Next for Europe?
3. Climate Change and Sustainability
4. China
5. Russia
6. The Future of Capitalism
7. Brexit
8. The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence
9. The Weaponisation of Social Media
10. The Importance of Space
11. Cyber Threats

As far as the Corona Hype is concerned, there are on that agenda several topics which explicitly speak about key components of that hype: China, The Weaponization of Social Media, the Future of Capitalism, Climate Change and Sustainability, What is Next for Europe? But if you think about all of those talking points, then you can see that they all can be put into one sentence:

To achieve our goals of world domination which consist in a Stable Strategic Order controlled by ourselves, we need to make happen the What is next for Europe?, using as a fundamental ideological basis Climate Change and Sustainability, by tasking China to release its bio-engineered SARS virus to create, by means of the Weaponization of  Social Media a world wide panic, but especially in Europe and the West, which will induce a fundamental end game for the Future of Capitalism by destroying national economies and making Europe in particular, dependent upon China, in the name of protecting the planet and public health: and this to suborn China to our goals by giving them a central role in the world economy in exchange for loyalty to ourselves.

I wrote what is in italics. I used my training in Archeology to assemble the facts and put them together in a working hypothesis which from multiple aspects best fits the events which happened and are happening.

Seeing that the Agenda for the 2019 Bilderberg Group mentions key factors which are showing themselves to be part of the Corona Panic and seeing that it is not difficult to construe the overall agenda as something in line to what actual happened, I return to what Alex Jones said in his movie, Endgame, namely, that those who become public faces or rulers of nations, first attend a Bilderberg Group meeting, and then are rolled out on the public stage.

So I find interesting that Bill Gates attended the Bilderberg Group Meeting in 2010, simply because in the 2020 Corona Hype Event,  his fingerprints are on every major actor, as David Kaftal demonstrates in today’s report, entitled, Bill Gates: God Father of the Worldwide Coronavirus Panic.  (Please note that I did not entitle the article God-Father because of a typo. The lack of the hyphen was intentional.)

David’s article gives a lot of reasons to suspect that Bill Gates is a major player in the Hype on Coronavirus, from the point of view of his personal contacts, the financial or moral backing he has chosen to grant every group involved, or his pre-existing personal relationships.

Who and where did the Hype begin?

But, as you may have learned from Sherlock Holmes — a character I admire greatly for his promotion of the science of forensic analysis — in his battle with the crime-mastermind, Doctor Moriarty, to prove anything you need to show that chronologically the suspect or his agents was involved from the beginning.

So here is some backstory on the course of events which led to the Corona Hype. I quote from the notes of FromRome.Info’s investigative reporter to me, the other day:

The first news report I could find mentioning coronavirus was from Dec. 31, 2019, which was before the the virus was reportedly identified or named. It was from the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy of the University of Minnesota, an article at http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-perspective/2019/12/news-scan-dec-31-2019.

It cited its source for the story as the Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health in Hong Kong (https://www.info.gov.hk/gia/general/201912/31/P2019123100667.htm).

Most media reports just say that on Dec. 31, 2019 Chinese state officials contacted the WHO and reported a cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan.

Except for the two links above, every other reference to the occurrence I could find was posted after the fact in a retrospective timeline. Later releases of information, such as took place when the virus was isolated and named, and when the first fatality occurred, seemed to have been issued either by the ChiComs or the WHO, picked up by the AP, and distributed throughout the MSM.

Bill Gates seems to be the central figure in all this. He’s funded the Pirbright Institute, which holds the patent on an earlier iteration of the live coronavirus and is working on developing a vaccine for the current one, which is almost identical (https://coercioncode.com/2020/01/24/unbelievable-gates-foundation-predicted-65-million-deaths-via-coronavirus-3-months-ago/), and donated 20 million dollars to Johns Hopkins (https://www.gatesfoundation.org/Media-Center/Press-Releases/1999/05/Johns-Hopkins-University-School-of-Public-Health).

He has also donated many millions of dollars to WHO. As recently as Feb 5, in response to WHO’s request for $675 million dollars in global donations to fight the virus, he announced that he is donating $100 million for vaccine research (https://www.forbes.com/sites/lisettevoytko/2020/02/05/bill-and-melinda-gates-donate-100-million-to-coronavirus-vaccine-research/#2109657c6e9e).

Bill Gates wants to use his fortune to “better mankind,’ through vaccinations which he has repeatedly said will aid with population reduction (his alleged reasoning: much overpopulation is caused by people in third world countries needing to have too many children because some of their children will die due to lack of vaccines) and with direct donations to Planned Parenthood and other organizations devoted to population reduction

The public face of Johns Hopkins’ role in Event 201 is Lauren Gardiner, Co-director, Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering. The media keeps quoting Johns Hopkins figures because of their “Dashboard,” a sophisticated tracking website that uses statistics from the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Health Commission of the People’s Republic of China, and Dingxiangyuan, a social networking site for health care professionals that provides real-time information on cases. (https://hub.jhu.edu/2020/01/23/coronavirus-outbreak-mapping-tool-649-em1-art1-dtd-health/). Since then the sources of their data has reportedly changed to WHO, the CDC, European Centre for Disease Prevention and ControlChina’s National Health Commission, and ncov.dxy.cn, an independent data source maintained by Chinese physicians. (https://www.medpagetoday.com/infectiousdisease/publichealth/84698).

As you can see from those notes, the first organization to sound the alarm about the Wuhan Virus was in the USA: The Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, at the University of Minnesota.

Why Minnesota? You would think the first to sound the alarm would be an organization in China or someone in the World Health Organization. But if you are making up a narrative, you have to launch it from where it would be considered an authentic crisis and not directly from any main player which would, in subsequent weeks, take the lead in steering and weaponizing the crisis.

So my hunch was that this University of Minnesota Center was controlled by Gates somehow, and upon request, my investigator found the following:

http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/universal-influenza-vaccine-technology-landscape : University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease and Policy is developing the “Universal Influenza Vaccine Technology Landscape” with support from the Global Funders Consortium for Universal Influenza Vaccine Development, which was established in 2017 with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Bingo. Now we have substantial indications that Bill Gates is in fact behind the engineering of the hype.

Corona Hype shut down of the Catholic Church

Part of the Corona Hype, for us Catholics, was the decision of Bergoglio to shut down masses at Rome, then get the Italian Bishops’ Conference, and the Bishops’ Conferences of much of the planet to shut down the Catholic religion. This shut down consists in ending the public celebration of the Sacrifice of the Mass and all public Sacramental functions. But not only that, it consists in ending all priestly ministry, for the most part, and closing down all social services the Church renders to the poor through parishes.

This shut down is the dream of dreams of Freemasonry and Satanists and of the Chinese Marxist Tyrrany of China. It is inexplicable on the basis of Catholic teaching, and thus, its motive must be sought outside the Catholic Religion.

So, with all the facts assembled so far, we must take a careful look at the Vatican’s relations with Bilderberg and Bill Gates.

The Vatican Secretary of State at Bilderberg 2018

The first thing to take note of is the scandalous event in 2018, when the Vatican Secretary of State attended the Bilderberg meeting that year. To understand how this could happen you have to understand first of all the coup d’etat which took place in 2013, when Pope Benedict XVI read a statement about his desire to resign, but did not resign. And how the Cardinals interpreted it as a resignation to get him out of the way and open the path to Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Cardinal Archbishop of Buenas Aires, and notorious adherent of international socialism and globalism.

Thus, as far as Catholics are concerned, Bergoglio never was nor could be the Pope, because the Church can only have one pope, and until the first one renounces every aspect of his office and dignity, the second one is nothing but a usurper and anti-pope.

From the get-go, Bergoglio showed himself to be an agent of globalism and aped the political positions of Barrack Obama and Hilary Clinton, who had openly advocated before 2013, a Catholic “Spring” to remove Pope Benedict XVI form power.

So that Bergoglio sends his de facto Secretary of State, Cardinal Parolin, was not surprising to Catholics, but was shocking to those who bought the big lie in February 2013, because they could not understand how the Vatican, the arch-enemy for 200 years of the Masonic Lodge would even be invited let alone attend one of the high councils of world Freemasonry.

Ominously too, the Bilderberg meeting of 2018 was held in Turin, Italy, which is one of the capitals of satanism in Europe.

Edward Pentin — who is the former secretary to a leading Socialist of the United Kingdom — wrote an article in the National Catholic Register ( formerly owned by the Legionaries of Christ, who were investigated by Benedict XVI, but now by EWTN which now collaborates with Opus Dei for Vatican news coverage) — wrote an article attempting to explain Parolin’s presence at the 2018 Bilderberg Conference. It was entitled, Vatican Official Explains why Cardinal Parolin attended Bilderberg meeting.

In that article, Pentin reports the crucial fact, speaking of Bergoglio:

The Pope was certainly aware of the cardinal’s participation, the official said, and that the cardinal was “fully aware of the controversial nature” of the event but felt encouraged by having already met many of the participants in “other contexts.”

“He already knew some of the people, prime ministers and so on,” the official said.

Following the 2018 Bilderberg Meeting, Bergoglio signed in October, an Accord with China surrendering the Church there to the hands of Peking, and then in the following Janaury traveled to the United Arab Emirates to sign an accord for a One World Religion Initiative, which effectively denied that the Catholic Religion is uniquely willed by God for the salvation of all. It is hard, then, to deny that there was no effect resulting from Cardinal Parolin’s attendance.

Did Bill Gates ask Bergoglio to shut down the Catholic Church?

At last we come to the point where we can ask the key question of the day, and attempt to answer it: Is the world-wide shutting down of the Catholic Church, the suspension of the public sacrifice, something which Bill Gates, as part of the role given him by the Bilderberg Meeting in 2010, and planned in the Meeting of 2019, played a central role?

Of course it is possible. Gates simply could have called Bergoglio on the phone and asked him. And only the US Government, which intercepts all phone calls, would have the evidence. But obviously, a request so momentous would have to require previous negotiations. Bergoglio would have to sign on and get something out of it. And what would that be? because by shutting down the churches and dioceses you risk destroying the financial support of the Church and alienating a massive amount of the faithful.

So let us take a look at the agenda of the 2018 Bilderberg Meeting to see if Cardinal Parolin, as the Vatican representative, was invited to discuss anything pertinent to the present affair. Interestingly enough, Wikipedia which has an article on the 2017 and 2019 Meetings has no article in English on the 2018 meeting. For that you have to go to the Bilderberg official website. It was their 66th meeting and held immediately after 06/06/2018, but let us not be superstitious!

TURIN, 5 JUNE 2018 – The 66th Bilderberg Meeting to take place from 7 – 10 June 2018 in Turin, Italy.

TURIN, 5 JUNE 2018 –The 66th Bilderberg Meeting is set to take place from 7 – 10 June 2018 in Turin, Italy. As of today, 131 participants from 23 countries have confirmed their attendance. As ever, a diverse group of political leaders and experts from industry, finance, academia and the media has been invited. The list of participants is available on http://www.bilderbergmeetings.org.

The key topics for discussion this year include:

  1. Populism in Europe
  2. The inequality challenge
  3. The future of work
  4. Artificial intelligence
  5. The US before midterms
  6. Free trade
  7. US world leadership
  8. Russia
  9. Quantum computing
  10. Saudi Arabia and Iran
  11. The “post-truth” world
  12. Current events

Since, Christ says of Himself, I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, as a Catholic I am able to understand that n. 11, can very well mean a world without Christ. And since Christ is present on Earth through the Church, His Mystical Body, a world without the truth, is theologically a world without the Church.  I know too, from my training in theology, that the Church is defined as the public assembly of those who believe in Jesus as God. It focuses on the Mass, but also on the other Sacraments. To shut down the Church as Bergoglio has done, is therefore, to establish as Post-Truth world.

The other topics such as Populism, which Bergoglio has railed against strongly since 2018; inequality, which Bergoglio is constantly harping on as the reason why socialism must be imposed on the masses, and US World leadership, which Bergoglio sees as a threat to humanity and fraternity, all are key reasons why Bergoglio may have sent Parolin to the Bilderberg Meeting.

They are all reasons, too, for which Bergoglio would be motivated to comply with the plans of Bilderberg 2019 if they included attacking his enemies.

Bill Gates and Bergoglio agreed in 2014 to save the world together?

I can guess, too, that if Bergoglio was to be given by the Bilderberg group the leading role as the head of world religion they are planing to unveil, that such a price would certainly convince him to do anything.

But there is more to this story than speculation, because Bill Gates and Bergoglio seem to have already pledged in 2014 to save the world together. Market Watch reported on this in an detailed exposé written by Paul B. Farrel and published on June 14, 2014. Farrel’s words were significant:

Pope Francis has already warned us of the three self-destructive trends: First: unsustainable global warming and climate change on Planet-Earth. Second: The pope says the global economy is “near collapse” as inequality increases, fueling revolutions. Third: Earth’s natural resources will be unable to feed the 10 billion people living in 2050. The three go hand-in-hand, merge, with trigger mechanisms cross-linked to ignite simultaneously.

True, Pope Francis, Bill Gates and many other billionaires are already working on philanthropic projects of personal interest. Now it’s time to combine forces, see the world as one entity, search for common solutions. For as Ben Franklin put it during the signing of the Declaration of Independence back in 1776: “We must, indeed, all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

Read that final sentence again.

Farrel understood that Bill Gates and Bergoglio were not only ideologically but historically impelled to collaborate. What was the enemy they sought to eradicate? I summarize Farrel, by citing the headers of his article:

  1. Unsustainable climate change destroying the planet
  2. Global economy collapsing fueled by widening inequality gap
  3. Earth’s natural resources cannot feed 10 billion in 2050

If you know one thing about Marxists, of the Gramescian variety, they seek to cause governmental or societal collapse by incrementalism. And if they cannot achieve it that way, they seek to create crises to push the nation to collapse. The Corona Virus Panic is the perfect engineered crisis for such a work. Bill Gates and Bergoglio already publicly endorsed the goal of the agenda. So why would Bergoglio not be willing to see those goals achieved by any means?

Yes, Farrel’s story is a cover. He speaks about what should and might happen in the future, not of any signed agreement. But when a major news site such as Market Watch publishes such a ridiculous piece of propaganda about men with a lot of political influence, and fawns over them, it is clearly a propaganda willed by the men mentioned for publicity reasons. Call it a trial balloon or advance notice to the inner circles.

But there are other ties, which cannot be ignored.

Jeffry Dorfman, writing for the highly influential Forbes.com, on January 9, 2014 was more explicit than Farrel. His article is entitled, The Pope Wants More People like Bill Gates not President Obama.  Forbes is not uninformed about what is really going on. Their family made their fortune pushing the fake news which caused the Stock Market Crash of 1929.

In 2015, The Vatican hosted a fireworks show funded by the co-founder of Microsoft, according to Sandro Magister, writing on March 9, 2016. It is events like this, where money can flow for reasons other than stated. Just as might have happened earlier this year of 2020, when the Vatican sent 600,000 medical masks to China.

Gates and Bergoglio seem to have kept their collaboration going on other score since 2014, with the Global Education Pact, which is let by Sachs but seeks funding from Gates. The suspension on March 3 of this meeting at the Vatican, scheduled for this spring, was te efirst indication that Bergoglio would sign on to the Corona Hype.

So we all need to ask the question: Did Bill Gates suggest to Bergoglio that the Sacraments are unhealthy occasions of viral transmission and that it would be best to shut down the Catholic Church to stop the spread of Coronavirus?

This would be the crowing achievement of the Corona Hype, because in this way you insure that 1 Billion Catholics stay at home daily and on Sundays and be deprived of the graces by which they could resist the Hype and network against it.

Bill Gates’ name, as I demonstrated the other day, has the decimal ASCII value of 666. So does the name Bergoglio, but not in the same way. According to the Fathers of the Church, the Anti-Christ will be a Jew who would end the public sacrifice of the Mass for 1260 days. I am not saying either Gates, whose 4 grandparents have surnames used by Jews or Bergoglio, who seems to have no Jews in his linegage, is the Antichrist, but I do recognize that the prophetic value of the Book of Revelations, written by the Apostle Saint John can not only apply to the actual end of this world, but also to all pre-figurements, or dry runs, of that end.

I leave it to you, to ask the questions which now must be asked.

But I do think that the Coronavirus Stunt might very well be the instrument whereby the Bilderberg group co-opts into their world plan for domination both the Catholic Church and Marxist China, which already signed a mutual secret alliance in 2018, following the 2018 Bilderberg Meeting which Parolin attended.

As a final note, Bill Gates is investing in technology which will track by finger print who has and who has not been vaccinated by which vaccines. Will a future world, post corona virus, require that everyone be so registered with Bill Gate’s technology, so as to be able to buy and sell in a healthy hygienic manner? This would ominously fulfill another prophesy of Saint John, in Rev. 13:17.

Unquestioning obedience is the vice which implemented the Corona Panic

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

As Catholic we should know that we owe unquestioning obedience to God alone. But even with God, He does not expect us not to have questions. We can see this in His approval of Job, in the Book of Job, where at the end of the Book, He approves him for having shown Him the respect of asking questions and making complaints, rather than of his friends who never spoke to God, but only about God.

The reasons for this are profound and many.

On man’s part, because God created us — not just endowed us — with an intellectual soul, capable of knowing and thinking and reasoning, it does not offend God in the least, but rather pleases Him, when we use our minds to know the truth and understand the world around us and above us. God is no more offended when we think, than a father or mother are offended when they put their toddler in a crib full of playthings and he begins to play with them and chew on them and toss them here and there. This is why God made the world and why He put us into it.

On God’s part, because God is a God of light, not of darkness, He wants us to make decisions in the light.  That is, he wants us to make informed decisions, because those truly are the ones we fully consent to and thus merit thereby.  While it is true that we cannot fully grasp the Mysteries of God, wither pray and fidelity to God we can obtain the graces to understand all things of Heaven better, so as to act on our holy Faith with greater merit, than simply a blind obedience based on trust alone.

But in a civil state, whether it be officially Catholic and recognize Christ’s Kingship or whether it be founded upon non-Christian principles and governed by persons without reference to Jesus Christ, we can never owe our superiors unquestioning obedience.

This is true because men are fallible. And no man is infallible in decisions which regard the temporal order of things, not even the Pope!  The only exception is Jesus Christ, and you can see from His words in Scripture, that not even He gloried in telling men what to do in temporal affairs.

Thus, to our human superiors we should always have a little reserve of doubt and constantly check to see if what they are asking us to do is conformable to the will of God for ourselves and for others.

I remember one of my superiors in the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate trying to convince us young friars of his faulty notion of blind obedience. He gave us this example: while you cannot obey your superior if he orders you to rob a bank with him, you must obey him if he tells you to buy a gun legally, load it, drive him to a bank and stay outside with the car engine on and help him leave when he comes out, even if you think he might be robbing a bank, because it is wrong to doubt or question your superior!

I burst out laughing when he said that, and I left that Order to avoid that kind of criminality. Years later he left too, and the Catholic priesthood, and I am told he marries men who want to marry one another.

The Corona Panic was created by this false and excessive obedience in the same way.

As I commented the other day, no government of men has the authority to shut down a nation. And as I remarked today, the ethics of medical hygiene used in hospitals cannot be extended to the whole society.

These are obvious to someone grounded in reality. But they are not obvious to someone who has willfully blinded himself to get promoted, and who now exercises some authority in the civil government of your nation. He may be totally incapable of seeing the truth of them.

And therein lies the problem which was exploited by the Corona Hypers — my name for those who promote the hype that Corona is an existential threat to humanity.

The correct response of everyone, should be always, first, to demand proof for the commands of superiors which threaten the common good. And, second, to remind them that they have limits to their authority, and even when they have the authority to order something, they cannot do so if the effect is the harm to the common good.

Thus governors, Ministers, Mayors, Police Chiefs were wrong to obey their national leaders who ordered their nations shut down or quarantined. They should have demanded the statistical proof sufficient to warrant it. And without that they should have refused to obey, if not arrested the national leaders for attempting a coup d’etat upon the free people of their own nation.

They should not have listened to the hype on TV or social media.  The hype should have been outlawed from the start. Only verified statistical evidence should be referred to.

Here, I do not call the Hype, the comments of individuals, but the concerted effort to present the Coronavirus as an existential threat. This hype was directed by the World Health Organization and consisted chiefly in stating that 3.4% mortality rate will apply to the whole human race, even though it only referred to the deaths of those who were admitted to hospitals in Wuhan with extreme symptoms of some sort of influenza.

These subordinate officers of civil government also should not have ignored the evidence that the head of the WHO is a former terrorist.

Unquestioning obedience in large masses of human beings is like the instinct cattle have to follow the rush in a stampede. What they are running from may be unknown to nearly all of them except the ones who started the stampede, but stampede they do, even if it means they all run off a cliff and are killed.

We should take a lesson from Nature on this. Nature is the name for the natural world. It is not a goddess, but it is a book from which we can learn many valuable lessons about sanity and humanity.

Corona Hype has exposed Catholic Media personalities as propagandists for the Revolution

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Let us pray for all the dead, from whatever cause of death, because all the dead are equally dead, physically speaking, though according to the current Globalist dogma, some dead are more equal than others.

That is, because some dead can be used to justify panic and national economic collapse, the imprisonment of billions and the economic hegemony of the Chinese Marxist State.

But at the same time, the Corona Hype Event has given every Catholic a demonstration of which Catholic media personalities are rational and which are irrational; which think on their own feet and which take the party line; which ask you to think and consider the facts of reality, and which tell you to shut up, buckle under and go along with what the Main Stream Media is telling you to think and do and feel.

These same personalities told you that Benedict XVI resigned the papacy, Bergoglio was validly elected, that Bergoglio has not lost his office by heresy, and that you should shut up and pray and leave big questions like this to the Cardinals and Bishops and to themselves. These same clergy are now denying you the Sacraments!

It should not surprise you, therefore, that all those writers who have been telling you that Pope Benedict XVI has not resigned according to the norm of law, are also telling you that the Pandemic is Hype and that you should look at the facts, not the propaganda.

They are also the only ones lamenting with you that you have been denied the Sacraments and the Mass for no sound reason.

Maybe now you should listen to them on the Benedict XVI issue too?
