Voris and his work, however i have noticed his total lack of commentary on the behavior of  Pope Francis, and i have been wondering why so silent   ??? on the seeming inconsistencies from our beloved Pontiff.  We need clarification on that issue Michael, so PLEASE may we have it??

I can explain it as it was told to me --- though please take it as a given that this is what I'm remembering, and I am obviously (very!) fallible. I hope I present their position accurately, and if I get something wrong, I beg pardon:  ChurchMilitant doesn't like to talk about Popes themselves because they see it as causing despair more than helping. In other words, they're concerned with the effects of what they say on the souls of Catholics and how much those Catholics trust in the Faith. People are easily confused and "scandalized" (and truly scandalized). They're prone to not understanding the levels of papal magisterium. To sum up, lots of folks just are not that bright.  So, the folks at ChurchMilitant, rightly or wrongly, believe that talking about Bishops, for ex., allows one to go "over their heads" and appeal to Archbishops, dicasteries, the Pope himself. But with the Pope, there's no one left to appeal to but God Himself, nothing we can do about it but endure.

I believe their motives are good -- whether they should or shouldn't talk about the Popes themselves. I don't see them acting out of fear or "wussiness" but out of a true concern for people's souls. (anyone who's followed Mr. Voris in his fight against nonsense can see that it's obvious he's no wuss!)
