The Original Peter's Pence Wasn't Enough For Them


By Anna Von Reitz

The original "Peter's Pence" started in France and England as an Income Tax back in the 1100's to help defray the costs of the Crusades; it was collected every April 15th by black-robed Officers of the Inquisition led by the Dominican Order. If you didn't pay willingly, you got stretched on the rack.
Sound familiar? It should.
Very little has changed. The IRS is still run by the Dominican Order under the Spanish Law of the Inquisition and the "federal" income tax is still collected every April 15th, and if you don't pay "voluntarily" the black-robed executioners will happily take your home or whatever else you've got.
It takes a Big Stick and a lot of hard-won knowledge to stop them.
Taking larger and larger hunks out of everyone's paycheck and forcing everyone to sign their own arrest warrants [1040's] was not enough for these Vermin upon the Earth. Oh, no, they had to start collecting a Second Peter's Pence.
Bearing in mind that while the First Peter's Pence is still being collected as "Federal Income Tax" every April 15, they started another, Second Peter's Pence, collected in June, which really is a more or less voluntary pass-the-hat donation.
The problem is that instead of creating a special fund for the Pope to use to help "victims of war, oppression, natural disaster, or disease" as advertised, the money has been going into (often sleazy) investments and not used for the purposes described to the Faithful.
Ninety percent of this Double Dip Second Peter's Pence "Relief Fund" has been used for speculative investments and slush funds while earthquake and hurricane victims have gone without, children have died of malnutrition and thirst, epidemics have rampaged, and wars for profit have proliferated.
The excuse? Well, you gave us this money, we can't just leave it sitting in a drawer....
Why leave it sitting anywhere at all? Ever? Why not put it to work immediately and directly for the purposes intended?
It isn't as if Catholic Social Services itself couldn't use a hand. Right here in Anchorage, Alaska, the local soup kitchen, emergency food banks, women's shelters, homeless shelters, and hospitals and clinics could all use a shot in the arm.
It isn't as if there is any sudden dearth of victims of war, oppression, natural disaster, and disease --- so that holding onto the money for "future needs" instead of spending it would make any sense.
Just this past year alone in Alaska we have over a thousand people who have lost their homes and/or suffered severe damage to their homes or lost their businesses as a result of wildfires and earthquakes, and that's just the "natural disasters" category in Alaska.
Think of all the people in the Middle East and Africa suffering from everything from plague to water shortages to corporate mercenaries running around killing and pillaging? People in Haiti who never received the aid we sent them, because Hillary Clinton siphoned 90% of it off to benefit her private foundation? Street kids in Delhi? American Indians stuck on Reservations?
The whole idea that there aren't enough "victims of war, oppression, natural disaster, or disease" in urgent and immediate need to justify a steady stream of Mercy Money from the Holy See, is ludicrous. Those bucks should hardly hit the plate before they are out the door.
The Pope's hands should be hot from the friction as he rushes from one disaster site to another, passing out relief money, supplying hospitals, rebuilding schools, drilling new water wells, extending electrical services, reforesting burned areas in the name of Jesus and God, the Father....and instead, it turns out that these despicable Con Artists have been taking that money and Slush Funding it.
Not only could the Pope have donated a few shekels of the Second Peter's Pence Fund to mitigate the cost of rebuilding and providing shelter for the victims of fires and earthquakes, he could have stopped spending money to spray noxious incendiary elements and compounds --- Chemtrails --- all over the planet, a practice that has contributed to these "natural" wildfire disasters and to deforestation by encouraging conditions favorable to Spruce Bark Beetle infestations. This extra-curricular project of the Vatican has also depleted the oxygen in our atmosphere and destabilized the magnetic pole.
Read that: they are spending money to CAUSE the problems, and then not spending money intended to help alleviate the consequences. Double whammy. Screwed if you do, screwed if you don't.
Do you think that all the fire victims in Australia -- and flood victims, too -- could stand a helping hand right about now?
But, oh, gee, all our Peter's Pence money is tied up in luxury condos and Hollywood film productions right now. Don't have a dime free.
I could throw up, and I'm not even Catholic.
So here's encouraging news. At least some Catholics are showing a backbone. If you are Catholic, and you "in good faith" contributed to Peter's Pence in the innocent expectation that the money would be used as advertised, read on:
(LifeSiteNews) — A Dallas law firm filed a class action lawsuit Wednesday against the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) for “unlawful, deceptive and fraudulent practices” in promoting and collecting funds for the papal charity Peter’s Pence.
The suit alleges the American bishops “actively” misled Catholics into believing their millions of dollars in donations to the collection would be used to help “victims of war, oppression, natural disaster, or disease,” when in fact much of the money was funneled into private investments, such as Hollywood’s sexually explicit Elton John biopic, “luxury condominium developments” and “hefty, multi-million dollar commissions” to fund managers.
Stanley Law Group filed the lawsuit January 22 in the United States District Court in Rhode Island on behalf of David O’Connell, a parishioner at Sacred Heart Church in East Providence, who is seeking a jury trial, it stated in a press release.
“USCCB must come clean and give back the money it took from well-intentioned people who thought they were giving urgently-needed funds to help the destitute around the world,” said lead attorney Mark Stanley.
“It’s regrettable and tragic that such a trusted and well-respected organization has been taking advantage of the generosity of Catholic donors.”
The firm is also asking American residents who contributed to Peter’s Pence between 2013 and 2019 to consider joining the legal action.
The lawsuit alleges that the USCCB is “liable for common law fraud, unjust enrichment, and breach of fiduciary duty” for “misleadingly soliciting millions of dollars in charitable donations that were diverted into private investments,” the press release states.
According to the 23-page complaint, Peter’s Pence is a “special collection taken from Catholics every June” and is described by the USCCB as a fund that “supports the Pope’s philanthropy by giving the Holy Father the means to provide emergency assistance to those in need because of natural disaster, war, oppression, and disease.”
But a bombshell report in the Italian newspaper L’Espresso in October 2019 exposed a very different story.
L’Espresso reported that “secret internal Vatican investigative reports” showed most of Peter’s Pence funds had been “diverted into ‘reckless speculative operations,’ with 77 per cent of the collections” -- “roughly $560 million” -- channeled to the Swiss investment company Credit Suisse, the complaint detailed.
The newspaper also reported that a high-ranking Vatican official asked Italian financier Raffaele Mincione to invest $200 million of the collection, and that Mincione used the money to buy real estate in London “for a luxury apartment development” through a fund he managed, stated the complaint.
When the investment didn’t yield the expected returns, the Vatican pulled out of the fund and bought the property, and Minicone made $170 million on the deal, according to sources cited in the document.
Pope Francis responded in November, stating that the fact that the Vatican invests the money shouldn’t bother anyone, according to Catholic News Services (CNS), the complaint stated.
“The sum of Peter’s Pence arrives and what do I do? Put it in a drawer? No, that’s bad administration. I try to make an investment,” CNS quoted the pope as saying.
That was followed by a further bombshell report in December when Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera broke the news that $1 million of Peter’s Pence donations had been invested in the Elton John biopic Rocketman, and more than $3.6 million in the movie Men in Black: International, the complaint stated.
Moreover, Corriere della Sera reported that “millions of dollars” had been sunk into the Malta-based investment company Centurion Global Fund run by Italian financier Enrioco Crasso, “who received ‘millions of euros in commissions’ while losing 4.61 percent of the fund (approximately two million euros) by the end of 2018.”
The complaint also cited a Wall Street Journal December 2019 report stating that for “at least the past five years, only about 10 percent of the money collected—more than €50 million was raised in 2018—has gone to the sort of charitable causes featured in advertising for the collection.”
Meanwhile, in the summer of 2018, plaintiff O’Donnell’s priest at Sacred Heart made a plea from the pulpit at Sunday Mass for donations to Peter’s Pence, the complaint recounted.
“Nothing [O’Donnell] saw or heard, on that day or beforehand, told him or made him understand that his donations to Peter’s Pence would be used for anything other than emergency assistance to the neediest people around the world.”
The complaint asserted that if O’Donnell had known where the money was going, he would not have donated.
But the USCCB “actively concealed the true character and nature of the Peter’s Pence collection and made misrepresentations about the specified purposes of the collection” that “rendered their statements misleading.”
The USCCB “has always known the difference between a donation for emergency assistance and a donation to defray Vatican expenses” but “hid this distinction in its promotion, oversight, and administration of the Peter’s Pence collection in the United States,” stated the claim.
As a result, the USCCB “has effectively profited at the expense of David O’Connell and members of the public.”
The legal action defines USCCB as “composed of all active and retired members of the Catholic hierarchy in the United States.”
It is asking the district court to certify the proposed class, and for an order enjoining the USCCB “from continuing the unlawful, deceptive, and fraudulent practices alleged in this complaint.”
The complaint is also seeking “costs, restitution, damages and disgorgement in an amount to be determined at trial,” an order for the USCCB to pay pre- and post-judgement interest on any amounts awarded, as well as costs and attorney’s fees.

Virginia Democrats Push Legislation to Make Criticism of Government Officials a Criminal Offense

By Shane Trejo
BigLeaguePolitics.com
Jan 22, 2020
In the wake of the Virginia gun rights rally on Monday, Democrats in the Capitol are not slowing down their push for tyranny. They are moving a bill through the legislature that would effectively criminalize dissent against Governor Blackface Northam and other state government officials.
House Bill 1627 was introduced by Delegate Jeffrey M. Bourne last week. The legislation “provides that certain crimes relating to threats and harassment may be prosecuted in the City of Richmond if the victim is the Governor, Governor-elect, Lieutenant Governor, Lieutenant Governor-elect, Attorney General, or Attorney General-elect, a member or employee of the General Assembly, a justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, or a judge of the Court of Appeals of Virginia.”
Language in the bill explicitly criminalizes free speech, in what would constitute a blatant attack on the 1st Amendment of the Constitution.
“If any person, with the intent to coerce, intimidate, or harass any person, shall use a computer or computer network to communicate obscene, vulgar, profane, lewd, lascivious, or indecent language, or make any suggestion or proposal of an obscene nature, or threaten any illegal or immoral act, he is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor,” the legislation reads.
The legislation makes it clear that the above provision applies directly to “the Governor, Governor-elect, Lieutenant Governor, Lieutenant Governor-elect, Attorney General, or Attorney General-elect, a member or employee of the General Assembly, a justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, or a judge of the Court of Appeals of Virginia,” which means this legislation effectively criminalizes dissent against public officials.
Tina Freitas, wife of Republican Delegate Nick Freitas, called attention to this intolerable act in a Facebook post on Tuesday night.
“Wow on cue, now they are after the 1A! Dems are trying to set up special rules exclusive to the Elite ruling class, to protect themselves from criticism!” Freitas wrote.
“What is considered harassment? Is Governor Infanticide/KKK Hood trying to avoid being held accountable? Are we no longer allowed to demand justice for the alleged rape victims of LG Fairfax? This is some straight up communist censorship!” she added.
Virginia Democrats were not detracted by the gun rights rally on Monday in the slightest. They moved red flag laws through the legislature just a day later, and subsequently killed pro-gun bills that were introduced by Republicans.
“The governor and the leadership of the democrats have declared war on law-abiding citizens and gun owners and their votes today just confirmed that that’s where we’re going,” said Philip Van Cleave, President of Virginia Citizens Defense League.
Virginia patriots may have to continue organizing locally, with Sheriffs deputizing local patriots and constitutional militias being trained, as a bulwark against the treasonous usurpers leading the state legislature.

Government by Family


By Anna Von Reitz

If you go back in the "Royal" lineages of Germany, France, England, Spain, Greece, and Russia, plus all the Kissing Cousins in smaller countries you will find that they are all part of the same Celtic Tribal System. The Kings are the Clan Chieftains and the governments are all families. For a living example of this in modern times, go to Ireland and Scotland where the Clan System is still alive and well, thank you.
The concept of family rule derives from the most ancient times and our Forefathers in America adopted it, too, only they changed the meaning of "family".
Instead of government according to family by blood, they established a government of family by location.
They established geographic borders of their “estates” which we call “States” today, and within the States they established smaller bordered areas that we call “Counties”. Thus, in America, everyone who lives within the borders of a County is a member of the ruling “family” of that county.  Everyone who lives within the borders of one of our States is similarly a member of the ruling “family” of that State. 
When we join our over 3,100 County “Families” together, we have The United States ruling over the National Soil Jurisdiction of this country.
When we join our 50 State “Families” together, we have The United States of America ruling over the International Land and Sea Jurisdiction of this country.
In America, we are one huge “Family” composed of every possible size, shape, color, religion, race, ethnicity, and kind.  We come from all over the world, bringing our blond hair and blue eyes and black hair and brown eyes, all our foods, and our traditions, with us. 
There is nothing homogeneous about us, and some people have regarded this as a great weakness, but we stubbornly regard it as a great strength.
The problem with the European Government by Family concept is that if you are not part of “the” Family, you are automatically discounted and excluded from participating in decision-making processes that impact everyone living under such a government.  This makes for constant rivalries and discontent and in-fighting and division at every level of the government except at the very top of the pyramid, where those “gifted” with political and economic power, scheme to keep power and keep everyone else subjected.
Over time, a nasty caste system develops, with the Clan Chieftains, aka, Kings and Queens, in receipt of god-like powers of life and death over the other people and over what should be public resources, and soon you have the situation afflicting Europe today, where all the top leaders are related to each other, all marrying into each other’s families, and yes, then you get inbreeding and genetic abnormalities that persist and pass down generation to generation.  You even get occasional lunatics, functional or otherwise.
Also over time, these “Ruling Families” forget that they are Clan Chieftains, related by blood and bone and bond and tradition going back thousands of years to all the “Common” people who share the same basic culture and genotype and who live within the borders of the so-called “Kingdom”. 
Families naturally form alliances with other families, and whole clans and countries in Europe do the same.  These alliances shift and change over time, so you have England aligned with France by Royal marriages, and England aligned with Spain by Royal marriages, and England aligned with Holland by Royal marriages, and England aligned with Germany by Royal marriages, and England aligned….

You see the point. 
Over centuries of this, you develop a Generic Ruling Class, with no particular attachment to any specific country or piece of land, any specific culture or language or religion. These “Internationalist Royals” firmly believe that they are in charge by Divine Mandate, with or without any merit or effort on their own parts, and, according to them, this Divine Mandate extends not only over their particular country of origin, but to the entire planet and everyone on it.
It never occurs to them that this is just self-interested hogwash and that their efforts to establish a New World Order Meritocracy --- which is just the Old World Order Aristocracy in fact --- is doomed to failure because it is not in line with Nature and with Truth. 
When William the Conqueror set up The Settlement of the Norman Conquest in England, and bequeathed “sovereignty in their own right” to his loyal Barons, he was setting his own family free from the chains of obligatory allegiance and hereditary enslavement.  When William Belcher did the same thing in America, declaring all the Continental Soldiers and everyone born on our soil forever afterward to be “Free Men” and “sovereigns in their own right” he also severed the chains of any hereditary Feudal allegiance or obligation to a Pope or a King.
As we have seen, certain parties have sought to re-establish a form of Corporate Feudalism via crimes of impersonation, identity theft, guile, unconscionable contracts, and brute force, yet so long as we are wary and stand together, these grafters cannot succeed.
So long as we embrace our vision of ruler-ship by the “family” of people living within the borders of our counties and our States, we include everyone, of every race, of every religion, of every color, of every sex---- everyone who will stand as an American State National or American State Citizen and accepts the rights and responsibilities of Self-Governance, becomes an inheritor of Freedom, not only in name, but in fact.
