‘Fringe’ Archbishop Vigano May Be Asking, ‘Can You Hear Me Now?’

Of course he probably isn’t asking that, judging by the apparent humility with which he conducts himself. 

Carlo Maria Viganò is a shepherd that comes across more in the line of John the Baptist than other defenders of the traditional Catholic faith like Strickland, Schneider, and Burke. He is a man who, because of his experience as Apostolic Nuncio to the United States of America, has in his weaponry the unique perspective of where religion, politics, and eternal salvation converge. 

Recently, Archbishop Viganò spoke at the “First Health Holocaust Remembrance Day.” Perhaps not remarkably at all, his words were a haunting echo of cautionary words he has spoken all along, particularly in a June 2020 letter to President Trump I highlight below. In his recent speech, he had this to say:

“We have seen doctors and paramedics killing frail and elderly people in intensive care through the use of anesthesia. We have seen rulers, magistrates, and police forces unleash an unprecedented criminalization of those who did not allow themselves to be “marked.” We know who is behind these people, who pays them, and who blackmails them: their names are well known. These murderers will soon find themselves answering for their crimes, if not before the tribunal of the world, then certainly before God, whom they hate and whom they would like to replace, in a mad delirium of omnipotence that is an inexorable prelude to their eternal defeat. The children of darkness, the conspirators of the World Economic Forum, and the globalist cabal want to establish the kingdom of the Antichrist on earth, as an obscene counterfeit of the Kingdom of Christ Our Lord.”

This is the same man who was one of the true shepherds crying out against child sex abuse and financial indiscretions in the Church when that was news.

He is a man who cries out against the confusing words and wholly non-Catholic decrees of Jorge Bergoglio, known by most as Pope Francis.

He is also a man that, because of his voice crying out in the wilderness, has been the target of innumerable hit-jobs, including those from inside the Vatican II-Pauline Church. Here is just one from the abominable CINO (Catholic In Name Only) America: The Jesuit Review. It followed the letter I will provide toward the end:

Archbishop Viganò has himself been weaponized at this point, with or without his consent, by President Trump. It is surely not going to stop with that one painful tweet or the latest letter from the archbishop. The two men are of a piece. The danger is that one is a fringe figure publishing on fringe platforms, and the other is the president of the most powerful (and most lethal) nation the world has ever known.

Perhaps the tell, if it were not already clear, comes later in Archbishop Viganò’s latest letter:

“For the first time, the United States has in you a President who courageously defends the right to life, who is not ashamed to denounce the persecution of Christians throughout the world, who speaks of Jesus Christ and the right of citizens to freedom of worship. Your participation in the March for Life, and more recently your proclamation of the month of April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month, are actions that confirm which side you wish to fight on. And I dare to believe that both of us are on the same side in this battle, albeit with different weapons.”

The pandering rhetoric and precise references to Mr. Trump’s political speaking points suggest to us what is really happening here. Archbishop Viganò, marginalized by his own rhetoric, wants to stay in the public spotlight by whatever method possible. In this case, it is by yoking his cause to that of President Trump. But this tells us more about Archbishop Viganò than it does about the Catholic Church or President Trump or anything else, and thus answers only unimportant questions. Our response at this point should be the one that so baffled us when Pope Francis first adopted it in August of 2018: Pay this man no attention.

I would like to ask the writer of this piece what part of that “tell” for him is summarily anti-Catholic on Trump’s part, or Viganò’s part for recognizing it? He may point out Trump’s vacillation on the abortion evil as a counter, but much of that has occurred since Viganò s letter to Trump; it would be a red herring regardless. Vigano, in the letter, is simply spotlighting Trump’s fight to that point for everything that is traditionally Catholic–or should be. 

As a quick aside, just this week, the FDA has agreed to remove social media posts and webpages that urged people to stop taking ivermectin to treat Covid. It has already removed a page that said: “Should I take ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19? No.” It is also agreeing to delete multiple social media posts that shamed and silenced truth-telling Americans, including the infamous one that stated, “You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all. Stop it.”

The Deep State‘s minions, including mass media, shamed truth-tellers like Viganò or speaking out, and now the receipts are pouring in. Viganò nd millions of others were right–and obviously so–concerning things like health mandates. And yet the notion of even a discussion was trampled on and killed by the vipers of globalism. Don’t expect any apologies.

The full letter from Vigano to Trump, dated June 2020, was only a chilling precursor to everything that has transpired on the world stage since. Viganò as nailed every truth there is to know about the Deep State and Deep Church, and only a stiff-necked generation would ignore the power and prescience of such prophecy. 

Mr. President,

In recent months we have been witnessing the formation of two opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children of darkness. The children of light constitute the most conspicuous part of humanity, while the children of darkness represent an absolute minority. And yet the former are the object of a sort of discrimination which places them in a situation of moral inferiority with respect to their adversaries, who often hold strategic positions in government, in politics, in the economy and in the media. In an apparently inexplicable way, the good are held hostage by the wicked and by those who help them either out of self-interest or fearfulness.

These two sides, which have a Biblical nature, follow the clear separation between the offspring of the Woman and the offspring of the Serpent. On the one hand there are those who, although they have a thousand defects and weaknesses, are motivated by the desire to do good, to be honest, to raise a family, to engage in work, to give prosperity to their homeland, to help the needy, and, in obedience to the Law of God, to merit the Kingdom of Heaven. On the other hand, there are those who serve themselves, who do not hold any moral principles, who want to demolish the family and the nation, exploit workers to make themselves unduly wealthy, foment internal divisions and wars, and accumulate power and money: for them the fallacious illusion of temporal well-being will one day – if they do not repent – yield to the terrible fate that awaits them, far from God, in eternal damnation.

In society, Mr. President, these two opposing realities co-exist as eternal enemies, just as God and Satan are eternal enemies. And it appears that the children of darkness – whom we may easily identify with the deep state which you wisely oppose and which is fiercely waging war against you in these days – have decided to show their cards, so to speak, by now revealing their plans. They seem to be so certain of already having everything under control that they have laid aside that circumspection that until now had at least partially concealed their true intentions. The investigations already under way will reveal the true responsibility of those who managed the Covid emergency not only in the area of health care but also in politics, the economy, and the media. We will probably find that in this colossal operation of social engineering there are people who have decided the fate of humanity, arrogating to themselves the right to act against the will of citizens and their representatives in the governments of nations.

We will also discover that the riots in these days were provoked by those who, seeing that the virus is inevitably fading and that the social alarm of the pandemic is waning, necessarily have had to provoke civil disturbances, because they would be followed by repression which, although legitimate, could be condemned as an unjustified aggression against the population. The same thing is also happening in Europe, in perfect synchrony. It is quite clear that the use of street protests is instrumental to the purposes of those who would like to see someone elected in the upcoming presidential elections who embodies the goals of the deep state and who expresses those goals faithfully and with conviction. It will not be surprising if, in a few months, we learn once again that hidden behind these acts of vandalism and violence there are those who hope to profit from the dissolution of the social order so as to build a world without freedom: Solve et Coagula, as the Masonic adage teaches.

Although it may seem disconcerting, the opposing alignments I have described are also found in religious circles. There are faithful Shepherds who care for the flock of Christ, but there are also mercenary infidels who seek to scatter the flock and hand the sheep over to be devoured by ravenous wolves. It is not surprising that these mercenaries are allies of the children of darkness and hate the children of light: just as there is a deep state, there is also a deep church that betrays its duties and forswears its proper commitments before God. Thus the Invisible Enemy, whom good rulers fight against in public affairs, is also fought against by good shepherds in the ecclesiastical sphere. It is a spiritual battle, which I spoke about in my recent Appeal which was published on May 8.

For the first time, the United States has in you a President who courageously defends the right to life, who is not ashamed to denounce the persecution of Christians throughout the world, who speaks of Jesus Christ and the right of citizens to freedom of worship. Your participation in the March for Life, and more recently your proclamation of the month of April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month, are actions that confirm which side you wish to fight on. And I dare to believe that both of us are on the same side in this battle, albeit with different weapons.

For this reason, I believe that the attack to which you were subjected after your visit to the National Shrine of Saint John Paul II is part of the orchestrated media narrative which seeks not to fight racism and bring social order, but to aggravate dispositions; not to bring justice, but to legitimize violence and crime; not to serve the truth, but to favor one political faction. And it is disconcerting that there are Bishops – such as those whom I recently denounced – who, by their words, prove that they are aligned on the opposing side. They are subservient to the deep state, to globalism, to aligned thought, to the New World Order which they invoke ever more frequently in the name of a universal brotherhood which has nothing Christian about it, but which evokes the Masonic ideals of those want to dominate the world by driving God out of the courts, out of schools, out of families, and perhaps even out of churches.

The American people are mature and have now understood how much the mainstream media does not want to spread the truth but seeks to silence and distort it, spreading the lie that is useful for the purposes of their masters. However, it is important that the good – who are the majority – wake up from their sluggishness and do not accept being deceived by a minority of dishonest people with unavowable purposes. It is necessary that the good, the children of light, come together and make their voices heard. What more effective way is there to do this, Mr. President, than by prayer, asking the Lord to protect you, the United States, and all of humanity from this enormous attack of the Enemy? Before the power of prayer, the deceptions of the children of darkness will collapse, their plots will be revealed, their betrayal will be shown, their frightening power will end in nothing, brought to light and exposed for what it is: an infernal deception.

Mr. President, my prayer is constantly turned to the beloved American nation, where I had the privilege and honor of being sent by Pope Benedict XVI as Apostolic Nuncio. In this dramatic and decisive hour for all of humanity, I am praying for you and also for all those who are at your side in the government of the United States. I trust that the American people are united with me and you in prayer to Almighty God.

United against the Invisible Enemy of all humanity, I bless you and the First Lady, the beloved American nation, and all men and women of good will.

In a notable coincidence, for I wrote this Viganò piece last Saturday, this “invisible enemy” of all humanity is the exact phrasing Trump used in a 2020 speech, a story I covered just yesterday. This invisible enemy was never the Covid-19 attack. No, Covid-19 was in perfectly plain view hiding its true perpetrators, the true phantom menace.

It would behoove all of us, traditionally Catholic or non, to find in this seemingly good shepherd’s words the spirit of “fringe” figures like the Baptist, of Elias. For not doing so, for “paying this man no attention,” even in the face of so much evidence, would be the wisdom of Scripture’s fools indeed.

May everyone named directly or referenced indirectly ask forgiveness and do penance for their sins against America and God. I fight this information war in the spirit of justice and love for the innocent, but I have been reminded of the need for mercy and prayers for our enemies. I am a sinner in need of redemption as well, for my sins are many. In the words of Jesus Christ himself, Lord forgive us all, for we know not what we do.
