Obama White House behind Vatican scandal

(WMR)—WMR’s well-placed sources in Rome report that the current scandal involving the disclosure of sensitive Vatican documents to “VatiLeaks,” is largely the work of White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs chief Cass Sunstein. The effort by Sunstein, who has been dubbed President Obama’s “information czar,” is to weaken the Vatican and subject its inner workings to greater transparency.

WMR has learned that some three weeks ago, Sunstein stated to his inner circle, “After the Arab Spring, we will have the Vatican Spring.”

According to our sources in the Vatican, the arrest of papal butler Paolo Gabriele by Vatican authorities for allegedly leaking the documents is a diversion. “When have you last heard the butler did it?” one Vatican insider told WMR.

The Vatican is being subjected to a full-scale assault by the same nexus of George Soros-funded non-governmental organizations, Sunstein’s “cognitive infiltration” operatives, and controlled media elements that helped bring about “themed revolutions” and the downfall of governments in Serbia, Ukraine, Georgia, Tunisia, Egypt, and other countries.

The controversy surrounding the Vatican Bank, formally known as the Institute of Works of Religion (IOR), began when J.P. Morgan Chase closed an IOR account at its branch in Milan, citing a lack of transparency. That was followed by the firing by the IOR’s supervisory board of Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, a former Banco Santander executive, for pushing for more transparency for the Vatican Bank and compliance with the EU’s laws on financial transparency. However, the J.P. Morgan Chase action was, according to our sources, prompted by Sunstein and his colleagues at the Treasury and State Departments. On March 7, the State Department, for the first time, added the Holy See to its list of money-laundering nations. That move triggered a wave of financial pressure on the IOR and Vatican, which was aided and abetted by Tedeschi. The IOR board then ousted Tedeschi.

WMR has been told that the Vatican came under pressure after it had backed the initiatives of the BRICS bloc of nations—Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa—to seek a realignment of the world’s financial system to provide greater influence for the emerging economies of BRICS and a reorientation of financial control away from London, Frankfurt, New York, and Washington. The Vatican’s policy placed it on the list of de facto enemies of Soros, the Rothschild baking cartel, the European Central Bank, and the World Bank/International Monetary Fund.

There has been speculation about the role of the IOR’s secretary, Carl Anderson, in the push-back by the Vatican against the Obama White House’s Vatican Spring operations. Anderson is the head of the Knights of Columbus and he served as an official in the Reagan White House and as an aide for the late North Carolina Republican senator Jesse Helms. In the 1980s, the IOR and the partly-Vatican owned Banco Ambrosiano were used by the CIA to covertly fund a number of anti-communist operations around the world, including the contras in Nicaragua who had the strong support of Reagan and Helms.

In 1982, Banco Ambrosiano chief Roberto Calvi was found hanging from Blackfriars Bridge in London. Calvi was a member of the powerful Masonic Propaganda Due (P2) lodge in Italy and after his firing it was feared by P2 that he might reveal the nature of secret payments by the lodge involving the Vatican and the bank. P2 members called themselves “frati neri,” Italian for “black friars.” There is strong evidence that Calvi was murdered by P2 agents.

In 1983, Emanuela Orlandi, a 16-year old student and Vatican citizen, was kidnapped, used for sex parties, and was murdered. Orlandi’s father, Ercole Orlandi, was an official of the IOR who had knowledge of the P2 and the Banco Ambrosiano covert payments scandal. WMR has learned that the same operatives who murdered Calvi in London also murdered Emanuela after her father refused to provide P2 with requested information. The P2 agents held Emanuela and may have sexually assualted her but after Emanuela’s father refsued to cooperate, the young girl was murdered. The exhumation of the grave of mafia gangster Enrico De Pedis this past May 12 in a search for clues about Emanuela’s murderers yielded nothing. Howveer, the exhumation provided a backdrop for Sunstein, Soros, Rupert Murdoch, and neo-conservative media outlets to run headlines, such as “Emanuela Orlandi Kidnapped for Vatican Sex Parties.” The recycling of the Orlandi “cold case” murder was timed to put additional pressure on the Vatican.

The White House-initiated Vatican Spring has opened up a schism within the Vatican hierarchy, similar to what has happened in China and Russia as a result of other White House/Soros political undermining tactics. Pope Benedict XVI is now isolated and the Vatican’s powerful number two official, Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, is circling the wagons to defend the Holy See against the Vatican Spring operations. Tedeschi and his allies, who reportedly include former Vatican Secretary General Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, now the Apostolic Nuncio in Washington, DC, are arrayed against the traditional Vatican hierachy, particularly Bertone. Vigano replaced Cardinal Pietro Sambi, the former Apostolic Nuncio to Israel and Palestine, who was a fierce opponent of Israel’s seizure of Christian church property in Jerusalem and the West Bank. Sambi died after routine surgery in Baltimore that later resulted in lung complications. A source close to Sambi said he believes that Sambi’s surgery involved “medically-assisted homicide.”

What, according to these folks, was the purpose of the Arab Spring?  I don't see any good in it for anyone, really, though I suppose someone has found a way to benefit.

Well, yeah, in theory, anyway.  But if there was any conspiracy behind it, it wasn't those guys.  Or if it was, it's so obvious it's hardly worth mentioning.

Now, if I had more info on which foreign investors made money off it, and how, then I might be learning something.

Quote:BRICS nations flex muscles at India summit
Creation of "BRICS bank" on agenda as leaders of emerging economies gather in New Delhi to further strengthen ties.
Last Modified: 29 Mar 2012 18:06

Leaders of the BRICS nations have met in India to discuss creating a new development bank, at a summit in which the bloc of emerging economies sought to convert its economic might into collective diplomatic influence.

The leaders of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa attended the fourth meeting of the bloc, a key non-Western alliance, that is looking to extend its influence.

"[The BRICS bank] would be a very powerful financial tool to improve trade opportunities."
- Fernando Pimentel, Brazilian trade minister

The five countries now account for nearly 28 per cent of the global economy, a share that is expected to continue to grow.

On Thursday morning, President Dilma Rousseff of Brazil, President Dmitry Medvedev of Russia, President Hu Jintao of China, President Jacob Zuma of South Africa and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of India shook hands at the start of the one-day meeting in New Delhi.

Top of the agenda was the creation of the grouping's first institution, a so-called "BRICS Bank" that would fund development projects and infrastructure in developing nations.

The initiative would allow the countries to pool resources for infrastructure improvements, and could also be used in the longer term as a vehicle for lending during global financial crises such as the one in Europe, officials said.

Al Jazeera's Sohail Rahman reporting from New Delhi said: "The opportunity is to build a commercial hub to help the bloc itself. They want to solidify economic growth between them."

Though it remains in the planning stages, the leaders signalled their commitment to setting up the bank as a potential counterweight to other multilateral lenders such as the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank.

"It would be a very powerful financial tool to improve trade opportunities," Fernando Pimentel, Brazil's trade minister, told a session on Wednesday ahead of the summit.

BRICS finance ministers will examine the "feasibility and viability" of the proposal and report back before the grouping's next summit, in South Africa in 2013.

The leaders also signed two other agreements aimed at simplifying credit facilities for exporters and increasing the use of each others' currencies in trade deals.

They also pushed for a reform of international financial aid economic institutions, criticising the "slow pace" of reforms at the International Monetary Fund.

At their fourth summit together, leaders from the five members also issued a pre-emptive warning against any military action to end the unrest in Syria, or intervention in Iran.

"We agreed that a lasting solution in Syria and Iran can only be found through dialogue," Indian PM Singh said in a closing statement at the one-day summit in New Delhi.

The BRICS leaders also voiced their support for a Syrian peace process as envisaged by Kofi Annan, the joint UN-Arab League envoy to the country.

I have also previously read that most of these BRICS nations have talked about moving away from the US dollar as the international trading currency.
Yes Don Quixote, Cardinal Bertone needs our prayers, as does Pope Benedict.

I'm sure some people benefited from the whole thing, but don't forget that we are dealing with fanatics who think that they can create a utopia through the spreading of democratic capitalism around the world.
