Supreme Court Nominee
Gorsuch Declares Fascism
Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, created and headed the "Fascism Forever Club" at Georgetown, an all-boys Jesuit prep school.
In 1981, Ronald Reagan chose Anne Gorsuch Burford, Neil Gorsuch’s mother, to head the Environmental Protection Administration. Gorsuch Burford had such little respect for the rule of law that she became the first Cabinet-level official to be cited for contempt of Congress and forced to resign.

I was sitting on a bench resting up from my tennis match, when my tennis partner remarked, “A lot of people are calling Donald Trump a fascist. What exactly is a fascist?”
“A fascist,” I replied, “is a white racist who believes God gives some white people the right to rule the world.”
European Roots Of Modern Fascism
The HBO series, The Young Pope, revealed that, in 1868, Pope Pius IX issued the papal decree, Non Expedit. The pope wanted to withhold recognition from the newly formed Italian Kingdom because the king had confiscated all the Catholic Church’s properties in Italy ___ including the Vatican. The pope issued the Non Expedit decree to punish King Victor Emmanuel by preventing Catholics from voting.
When Pope Benedict XV discovered that the Non Expedit decree did nothing to get back his papal lands, he rescinded the Non Expedit decree and decided on implementing a new strategy. Instead of opposing the Italian government, the pope decided he would take control of it through the Italian Popular Party a political organization founded by Father Luigi Sturzo, a Catholic priest. Benedict’s successor, Pius XI, directed his Italian Popular Party to work closely with Benito Mussolini and his fascist party. In 1919.
when the occasion presented itself, Pius XI merged his Italian Popular Party with Mussolini’s Fascist Party. Together they seized control of the Italian government. Once the takeover was complete, Pius XI dissolved the Italian People’s Party and declared Mussolini, el Duce, The Leader. The pope and el Duce signed the Lateran Treaty, returning the Vatican property to the pope, establishing a separate Vatican State under the control of the pope and detting up the independent Vatican Bank funded by reimbursements paid to the Vatican by the Italian government in compensation for the other papal lands seized by King Victor Emmanuel.
The Third Reich
Under the Weimar Republic, the German Centre Party ___ often called the Catholic Centre Party ___ held a quarter of the seats in the German Parliament, but Pius XI prohibited the German Catholic Centre Party from cooperating with either the German Communist, the German Social Democrat or the German Democrat parties. The pope allowed the Catholic Centre Party to cooperate only with the conservative German Nationalist Party or with the National Socialist German Workers Party, the Nazis. In 1933, the Catholic Centre Party supported the Nazi Party’s takeover of the German government and voted for the enabling act that gave Hitler dictatorial powers. When the Nazi party took complete control of the German government, the Vatican ordered the German Catholic Centre Party to dissolve itself.
For centuries, Spain was ruled by Carlists, the party of church clergy and landed aristocrats. When the republicans defeated the Carlists in the 1930 Spanish elections, Pius XI was displeased with the outcome. The pope called upon the fascist general, Francisco Franco, to stage a military coup against Spain’s democratically elected Republican government. The pope then called upon Hitler and Mussolini to provide modern weapons, ground and air support as well as logistical and military supplies to Franco’s army of African mercenaries. Franco’s fascist army routed the poorly armed and poorly led Republican army. Franco and his fascists overthrew Spain’s republican government and reconstituted Spain as a fascist dictatorship.
The Slovakian Republic
In March of 1939, the Vatican directed the Catholic Slovak Peoples Party of Czechoslovakia to join Germany’s Nazi Party. The leader of the Czechoslovakian Catholic Party, Father Jozef Tiso, a Franciscan priest, proclaimed the newly established Slovakian Republic and declared himself head of the Slovakian government.
Independent State of Croatia
When the combined Italian and German armies annihilated the Yugoslavian army and occupied the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, Hitler and Mussolini established the Independent State of Croatia. Pope Pius XII persuaded Hitler to use the Ustashi, a Catholic political party, to run the puppet Croatian government. On 10 April 1941, Hitler put the Ustashi leader, Ante Pavelić, jn charge of Croatia’s puppet government. Pavelić adopted the Ustashi title, "Poglavnik" meaning leader, in honor of his sponsors, el Duce and der Fuhrer.
Between 1919 and 1943, the Vatican imposed fascism upon the entire European continent. Deus vult! God wills it!
Fascism Immigrates To America
On May 8th 1945, V-E Day ended European fascism but not fascism’s global rampage. Ironically, America welcomed the racist ideology responsible for the deaths of 20 million people. A 2016 Social Security Administration report revealed that many of the SS officers, Nazi government officials, concentration camp administrators and fascist war criminals responsible for crimes against humanity had collected $20.2 million in social security retirement payments from the US government. The Vatican with the assistance of the CIA, British intelligence, the Swiss government and the Red Cross developed a ‘ratline’ that secreted tens of thousands of fascist war criminals into the United States as well as into Latin America and Canada. Operations ‘Paperclip’, Operation ‘Rusty’ and Operation ‘Tobacco’ delivered Nazi scientists, gestapo agents and abwehr spies into the United States where a friendly reception ___ prepared before WWII ____ awaited them.
Preparing The Ground
Father Charles Coughlin
In the 1930s, Father Charles Coughlin, a Catholic priest in the Archdiocese of Detroit, reached 30 million listeners with his weekly radio broadcasts. Launching attacks against socialism, communism and the Soviet Union, Coughlin’s radio broadcasts criticized American capitalists for their greed. According to Coughlin capitalist greed was responsible for making communism and socialism attractive to the working-class. At one point, the Catholic priest was so popular that the House Committee to Investigate Communist Activities invited Father Coughlin to testify to Congress as a star witness.
Peppering his radio broadcasts with praise for Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler, Father Coughlin tailored his fascist commentary on Jewish bankers to appeal to an immigrant, working class audience, Coughlin was unabashly anti-Semitic. The priest even said: "When we get through with the Jews in America, they'll think the treatment they received in Germany was nothing.” In 1939, when Father Coughlin began directly attacking Franklin Roosevelt and the president’s New Deal policies, the Catholic priest was forced off the air.
Bishop Fulton Sheen
After the war, Bishop Fulton Sheen, another Catholic clergyman took up Father Coughlin’s propaganda campaign. Contrary to Father Coughlin, Bishop Sheen refrained from anti-Semitism and couched his anti-communist commentary with Christian evangelical homilies.
Like Father Coughlin, Bishop Sheen began his media career on the radio, but soon discovered that television gave him the beat exposure. Television quickly made Fulton Sheen the most celebrated spokesman in America’s anti-communist crusade. Fulton Sheen completely overcame American anti-Catholic prejudices and millions of Americans viewed his weekly program. Bishop Sheen’s telecasts fully prepared Americans to receive the fascist war criminals sneaking into the country by characterizing them as God-fearing patriots defending Christian values:
America, it is said, is suffering from intolerance — it is not. Our country is not nearly so overrun with the bigoted as it is overrun with the broadminded.
God commanded man to be a scientist the day He told him to rule the earth and subject it.
The pacifist thinks that the alternative to war is peace; it is not. Sometimes the alternative is oppression.
If I were not a Catholic, and were looking for the true Church in the world today, I would look for the one Church, which did not get along well with the world; in other words, I would look for the Church which the world hated.
The world is rapidly being divided into two camps, the comradeship of anti-Christ and the brotherhood of Christ. The lines between these two are being drawn. … But in a conflict between truth and darkness, truth cannot lose.
Today (1950), the hatred of the Moslem countries against the West is becoming hatred against Christianity itself. Although the statesmen have not yet taken it into account, there is still grave danger that the temporal power of Islam may return and, with it, the menace [emphasis added] that it may shake off a West which has ceased to be Christian, and affirm itself as a great anti-Christian world Power.
Fulton Sheen twice won an Emmy for Most Outstanding Television Personality, and was featured on the cover of Time Magazine.
Senator Joseph McCarthy
The Catholic politician best known as the prototypical American fascist was Minnesota Senator, Joseph McCarthy. Joe McCarthy catapulted to national prominence in 1950 when he claimed to possess a list of Communist Party members who were working for the US State Department, but were spying for Russia. McCarthy also claimed that the Army, the CIA’s Voice of America and the Truman administration were harboring entire communist networks. These accusations, known as the “Red Scare” launched Joe McCarthy’s unique brand of fascism known as McCarthyism.
Joe McCarthy chaired the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations from which he launched his Communist ‘witch hunt’. But in actuality, McCarthy’s purge was aimed at Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal administrators ___ those humanists who were interested in ameliorating the human condition and making the lives of all Americans, not just the rich and powerful, better. McCarthyism targeted the liberal government employees who had enthusiastically implemented FDR’s social security and bank regulation programs. They were not communists; but they were anti-fascists. They had to be purged from the government or else they would have obstructed the influx of fascist war criminals.
McCarthy’s general counsel, Roy Cohn, a particularly vicious and hateful investigator, was responsible for developing the infamous Hollywood blacklist. The blacklisting of the cream of the motion picture industry was the only method the government could co-opt Hollywood for propaganda purposes. Blacklisting caused the entire motion picture industry to cannibalize itself. Friend turned upon friend, directors informed on writers, actors testified against each other. McCarthy’s blacklists made it possible for Ronald Reagan and George Murphy to take charge of Hollywood. Roy Cohn later mentored Donald Trump. Trump called Roy Cohn the most important person in his life after his father, Fred Trump.
Robert Kennedy was Joe McCarthy’s assistant counsel. Kennedy developed the relationship with J. Edgar Hoover that gave McCarthy the muscle of an American ‘gestapo.’ Kennedy got the FBI to strong arm, blackmail and arrest anyone who ran afoul of McCarthy or the subcommittee staff. While J, Edgar Hoover was unable to find any evidence that a national crime syndicate or a Mafia was operating anywhere in the United States, the FBI director found evidence of a nationwide communist conspiracy everywhere. Hoover devoted vast resources to combat the ‘Red terror.’ The FBI investigated, intimidated and watched anyone suspected of a broad range of anti-government activities including belonging to a communist or socialist organization, belonging to or supporting any organization identified as a communist or socialist ‘front group’, being denounce anonymously for disloyalty or being identified as a ‘fellow traveler.’
McCarthy’s attack on politicians, government employees, academicians, artists, writers and any other individual accused of holding liberal views or anti-fascist biases set prepared the way for the current American police state. But in 1954, following the highly publicized Army hearings and the suicide of Wyoming Senator Lester Holt, McCarthy’s popularity faded ___ though public support for McCarthyism continued. On December 2, 1954, the US Senate voted to censure Joe McCarthy.
Today fascism is as American as ‘apple pie.’ The mainstream media is controlled by government propagandists who use terms like ‘American exceptualism’, ‘moral equivalency’, ‘regime change’, ‘collateral damage’, ‘enhanced interrogation’ and ‘fake news’ to obscure the reality of America’s police state. Hollywood turns out the propaganda that makes America appear to be defending freedom while in reality it is spreading barbarism, An so American fascism would not have been possible without Charles Couglin, Fulton Sheen and Joe McCarthy, just as Neil Gorsuch’s Fascism Forever Club was made possible under the tutelage of the Jesuits.
The Vatican Ratline
The way having been prepared, America welcomed tens of thousands of European fascists where they received comfortable housing and replaced liberal, democratically minded members of FDR’s ‘new deal’ administration ___ victims of Joe McCarthy’s purge ___ in government, academic and corporate institutions.
Father Krunoslav Draganovich, a Catholic priest from Croatia, was an associate of Ustashi leader, Ante Pavelić. Father Draganovich developed the Vatican ratline used by fascist war criminals fleeing to America. Father Draganovich’s ‘ratline’ hid, transported and re-classified the Pope’s fascists by using American and British intelligence officials, as well as the Internationa Red Cross and the Swiss government. Draganovich also used internal resources to support the Vatican ratline. Franciscans printed false identity documents; Benedictines housed fugitives in their seminaries, convents and monasteries and Jesuits laundered money, misdirected ‘occupation’ authorities and planted fake news stories.
In 1950, William Casey ___ a Roman Catholic and a member of the Vatican’s Knights of Malta ___ began his CIA career as the director of the International Rescue Committee, a CIA front organization. Casey provided Father Draganovich with the American immigration documents required to smuggle fascist scientists, gestapo agents and concentration camp administrators into the US.
Casey worked for James Angleton, the CIA’s liaison with the Vatican. The pope allowed Angleton and Casey to launder the gold, silver and currencies looted from occupied territories through the Vatiican Bank. The multi-billion dollar CIA money laundering program and the illegal immigration of fascist war criminals locked the US and the Vatican into an ‘informal’ concordat which, over time, developed into a global, multi-dimensional criminal enterprise. Deus vult!
A Citadel For Fascism
In 1953, the British and United States governments launched a coup d'état that overthrew the government of Mohammad Mosaddegh, the democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran. This marked the beginning of American fascism’s global campaign to overthrow governments, assassinate leaders, detain, torture and murder citizens. The US government drew upon the experiences and expertise that its fascist emigres gained from the slaughter of 20 million people during World War II.
Long after the last of the Nazi loot had been laundered, Casey, Angleton and the CIA continued funneling money through the Vatican to finance the CIA’s global terrorist activities. The CIA was aided by Vatican contacts, Roberto Calvi and Michele Sindona. However, unbeknownst to the CIA, Calvi and Sindona were also handling a phony stock scheme masterminded by the Vatican Minister of Finance, Paul Marcinkus, an American archbishop. Archbishop Marcinkus was using Sindona and Calvi to peddle his phony securities to a number of Italian banks.
In June 1982, Roberto Calvi was found hanging from scaffolding beneath Blackfriars bridge in London. Calvi’s spectacular death set into motion a series of events. Investors discovered Archibishop Marcinkus’ securities scam. The revelation exposed the Vatican Bank’s criminal activities which caused several Italian banks to collaspse. The resulting intermational scandal that embroiled the pope and the Vatican Bank ended William Casey’s CIA money laundering activities. But by this time, the CIA had put in place a global army of fascist thugs and William Casey had made a personal fortune. Ronald Reagan appointed Casey, Director of the CIA. Casey was able to minimize the ‘blowback’ from the Vatican scandal and soon it was quickly forgotten,
America’s Patron Saint Of Fascism
In 2016, Pope Francis canonized Junipero Serra, the Franciscan priest known to have enslaved, tortured and murdered hundreds of thousands of native Americans. The king of Spain sent Serra to California in the 1700s, along with Jesuit priests, to protect the native residents, their villages and their lands from Russian settlers. Yet secret instructions from the Vatican had Junipero Serra engaged in a program of regime change and empire building.
Serra directed his Spanish soldiers to loot the Indian villages of their valuables and then burn them to the ground. Afterwards the Franciscan priest offered the natives a choice: convert to Christianity and submit to perpetual servitude or die. With an unlimited supply of slave labor and an unlimited amount of building materials, Serra built mission fortresses that became death camps for the native American peoples ___ camps that the future Catholic saint administered barbarously, inhumanely and sadistically.
Serra’s soldiers continually beat the natives, both men and women. Women, however, were never beaten in front of the men. Serra did not want the women’s cries to incite the men to revolt. Neither did the Franciscan want the men to hear the women’s screams when the soldiers routinely raped them. As many natives died from syphilis carried by Serra’s soldiers as from physical abuse. Doubtless the SS concentration camp administrators learned many lessons from Junipero Serra’s memoirs.
In 2016, Pope Francis rewarded Junipero Serra for enslaving, torturing and exterminating 300, 000 human beings with the Catholic Church’s highest honor: sainthood. By canonizing Junipero Serra, Francis not only re-enforced the Vatican’s ongoing commitment to fascism but the pope used this opportunity to urge white Americans to “stay the course” in their rush towards a total war with Russia,
Today Pope Francis must be overjoyed that Donald Trump has nominated Neil Gorsuch, the founder and leader of the Fascism Forever Club, at a Jesuit school, to become the next Supreme Court Justice of the United States. Doubtless Gorsuch will be confirmed, Deus vult: God wills it!
