the particular contribution

Last week, amid everything going on with the Catholic Church, the Latin American Herald Tribune reported that Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom had an audience with the pope at the Vatican. The two men "analyzed the international situation and the challenges presented by poverty, crime and emigration," meeting alone for twenty minutes in the pope's library.

The visit, the Vatican said, has highlighted the good relations between church and state in Guatemala and the particular contribution that the Catholic Church offers for the development of that Central American country. Colom invited the pope to visit Guatemala, the president’s aides said. After the audience, Colom met with the Vatican’s secretary of state, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, and the Holy See’s de facto foreign minister, Archbishop Dominique Mamberti.
Hmm. Sounds important. Pope John Paul II visited Guatemala three times, in 1983, 1996, and 2002.

Guatemala (source)


Obama's Attorney General, Eric Holder, used to be Chiquita's top legal counsel. Chiquita, along with other corporations like Coca Cola, ExxonMobil, Occidental Petroleum and Drummond Co., have reportedly made arrangements in the past with death squads. As reported here:

After we restored order and became the local agents of law enforcement, managers for Chiquita and Dole plantations relied upon us to respond to their complaints...We would also get calls from the Chiquita and Dole plantations identifying specific people as "security problems" or just "problems." Everyone knew that this meant we were to execute the identified person. In most cases those executed were union leaders or members or individuals seeking to hold or reclaim land that Dole or Chiquita wanted for banana cultivation, and the Dole or Chiquita administrators would report to the AUC that these individuals were suspected guerillas or criminals.


So, assassinate union leaders and report them as suspected guerillas or criminals. Check. After serving as top legal counsel, get promoted to Attorney General of the US. Check.

Chiquita used to be the United Fruit Company, a company with connections back to George Bush, the CIA, and the Rockefellers.

At the end of May, the Central Intelligence Agency declassified 1,400 pages of reports on the 1954 coup it engineered in Guatemala to remove president Jacobo Arbenz from office. Arbenz became a target of U.S. imperialism for threatening to carry out modest land reforms against the interests of produce giant, United Fruit Company. In 1952, U.S. president Harry Truman gave the secret police approval to begin shipping guns and money to opposition forces and training mercenaries.

The released documents show that CIA cops trained assassins to kill 58 people put on a "disposal list." They include a 22-page how-to manual on murder. Secret intelligence officials claim none of the missions were carried out. The list of CIA targets were also subjected to "nerve war," which included death threats, phone calls "preferably between 2 and 5 A.M.," frame-ups, and other forms of intimidation. Less than 1 percent of the CIA files on the Guatemala coup were included in the declassification, with many details blacked out. (source)
That was the beginning...
In the 1980s alone, the Guatemalan military and its death squads killed over 100,000 people. Entire Indian villages were massacred....What brought down the wrath of this company and of the CIA was President Jacobo Arbenz Guzm n's attempt to distribute uncultivated lands owned by United Fruit to landless peasants. (source)
Let me recap that: The CIA and other death squads killed over 100,000 (in the 1980s, 200,000 over the whole period) Guatemalans BECAUSE back in the 1950s Arbenz tried to distribute uncultivated land owned by UFC to landless peasants.

I believe that's what it says.

Think about that for a minute. What kind of murderous depravity is that?

Other more recent organized crime activities in Guatemala include...

Child pornography scandal in Jutiapa, Guatemala: a child pornography ring that drugged and abused school students, ages 11 to 16, in the production of pornographic videos. The students were residents of a state-run school. The parents received death threats.

Children for sale: Guatemalan pedo-paradise: "Using hidden cameras, NBC solicited a child from a Guatemalan baby broker for an American man with a history of sex crimes against children. The broker tells the undercover reporter that the easiest way to get the adoption approved is to either bribe the police for a clean background check or just remove this information from the adoption home study."

Spanish accused pedophile who works with children in Guatemala: He was accused of being part of a network of pedophiles, raping children, record and disseminate the footage online. In the network was known as 'Darzee'. He managed to gain the trust of the people who hired him as a caretaker of children, camp counselor, teacher and organizer of festivals. Jordá spent three months in prison and fled out of Spain. It was to hide in a secluded place in Guatemala that are only accessible by boat. His work since then is the caretaker of the center, with 200 children in their care.

Aangirfan tells us about Catholics and the CIA.

1. CIA ties to the Jesuits:


  • Robert Gates, US Secretary of Defence, is a graduate of the Jesuit Georgetown University.
  • George Tenet is a graduate of the Jesuit Georgetown University.
  • Leon Panetta is a graduate of the Jesuit Santa Clara University.
  • William Casey was a graduate of the Jesuit Fordham University.
  • McCone was an administrator at a Jesuit university in Chicago.
2. Allegedly, Catholic orphanages supplied children for mind-control, sexual abuse and blackmail by the CIA:


  • According to an article entitled George Bush, The CIA, Mind Control & Child Abuse, "the CIA's first widespread use of sex came from a program to blackmail United States politicians conducted by Edwin Wilson.
  • "The political targets were enticed to live out their sexual fantasies in the flesh. With hidden cameras ready the unsuspecting politician would be filmed, which would later be used to blackmail him into supporting the agency’s projects and views.
  • "Wilson's skill in these matters dated back to the early 1950s, when he took over a network of homosexual and pedophile rings from CIA asset and McCarthy Committee counsel Roy Cohn"

Detective James Rothestein, a respected former New York City vice officer said of Cohen:
Cohn's job was to run the little boys.
Say you had an admiral, a general, a congressman, who did not want to go along with the program.  Cohn's job was to set them up, then they would go along. Cohn told me that himself.
  • As an attorney, Roy Cohn represented John Gotti, Carmine Gambino, and Fat Tony Salerno, all of whom could have helped him in his criminal activities.
    He advised Presidents Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan.

Excerpts from The Franklin Coverup by John W. DeCamp reveal additional connections between the CIA, politicians, sexual blackmail, the Catholic Church, and Guatemala:

[Craig] Spence, accord­ing to friends, was also car­ry­ing out homo­sex­ual black­mail oper­a­tions for the CIA...Larry King’s activ­i­ties were dis­cov­ered through an inves­ti­ga­tion into Spence’s operations....De Camp alleges that both Spence and King were involved with the Iran-Contra imbroglio.
...Other sources have noted the role of sex­ual black­mail oper­a­tions in the con­text of power pol­i­tics and the world of covert oper­a­tions. One of the most pow­er­ful alleged play­ers on this stage is Robert Keith Gray.
“The career of another Nebraskan, Robert Keith Gray, illu­mi­nates this milieu and why it would be so con­ge­nial to a per­son like Larry King. Gray is the chair­man and CEO of Hill and Knowl­ton, one of the two biggest pub­lic rela­tions firms in the world, with such blue-chip clients as AT&T, IBM, Xerox, and DuPont. CBS-TV’s 60 Min­utes has called Hill and Knowl­ton ‘by far, the biggest, most influ­en­tial PR firm in Wash­ing­ton,’ adding that ‘crit­ics accuse them of being an unelected shadow gov­ern­ment.’ Gray first came to Wash­ing­ton D.C. dur­ing the Eisen­hower Admin­is­tra­tion, as Ike’s appoint­ments sec­re­tary and then sec­re­tary of the cab­i­net. He went to Hill and Knowl­ton in 1961. Gray played a role in Ronald Reagan’s 1976 pres­i­den­tial cam­paign and, in 1980, he was deputy direc­tor of com­mu­ni­ca­tions. Report­ing directly to Bill Casey.”

...Gray is also report­edly a spe­cial­ist in homo­sex­ual black­mail oper­a­tions for the CIA.”
...De Camp alleges that the oper­a­tions in which Wil­son, Ter­pil and Gray allegedly engaged in were an exten­sion of the activ­i­ties of for­mer Joseph McCarthy aide Roy Cohn.
Again...
...‘Cohn’s job was to run the lit­tle boys. Say you had an admi­ral, a gen­eral, a con­gress­man, who did not want to go along with the pro­gram. Cohn’s job was to set them up, then they would go along. Cohn told me that him­self.’ 
Some of the little boys came from South America.
...Gray’s activ­i­ties over­lap those activ­i­ties of the Iran-Contra scan­dal and also the milieu of the Bush fam­ily. The Catholic youth home Covenant House was impli­cated in orga­nized child molesta­tion and also had ties to the Bushes.
“Lauded by the Rea­gan and Bush Admin­is­tra­tions as a show­case for the pri­va­ti­za­tion of social ser­vice, Covenant House had expanded into Guatemala as a gate­way to South Amer­ica. Accord­ing to intel­li­gence com­mu­nity sources, the pur­pose was pro­cure­ment of chil­dren from South Amer­ica for exploita­tion in a pedophile ring. The flag­ship Guatemalan mis­sion of Covenant House was launched by a for­mer busi­ness part­ner of Nicaraguan dic­ta­tor Anas­ta­sio Somoza–Roberto Ale­jos Arzu–who had ties to the CIA, accord­ing to the Vil­lage Voice of Feb. 20, 1990. The Voice quoted Jean-Marie Simon, author of Guatemala: Eter­nal Spring, Eter­nal Tyranny: ‘It’s like hav­ing Idi Amin on the board of Amnesty International.’”
Perhaps we can pause here to remember the Sabbateans and the history of the Jesuits. And why it makes perfect sense that all those CIA directors would come out of Jesuit universities and go on to oversee these despicable operations described at these links.

This is not a coincidence.

^^^^^^^

These sexual blackmail operations have evidently continued to the present day. A Wayne Madsen report from 2006 details the role of certain politicians in these scandals, and the further connection to Guatemala.

WMR has learned that the GOP for a number of years has used pipelines like the House and Senate page systems, political indoctrination organizations like the College Republicans, juvenile "diversion programs," and religious-connected political groups like to groom young men for the predatory sexual appetites of older male GOP members of Congress.

But it is not just young men who are groomed by the GOP predators. Republican Rep. Jerry Weller of Illinois, who is married to the daughter of Guatemalan ex-dictator (and fundamentalist Christian) Gen. Efrain Rios Montt, is rumored to have conducted an illicit affair with a 16-year old female page. This comes at a time when the United States and John Bolton, a supporter of Rios Montt, are attempting to sway the United Nations into electing Guatemala to the UN Security Council. Former CIA officials, well aware of the human rights abuses by past and current members of Guatemala's oligarchy, have leaked information on Weller, former CIA Director Porter Goss, and others to point out that the agency, as far back as the 1960s when Goss served as a Latin American CIA agent, routinely used Mexican and Guatemalan female teens to entrap U.S. and foreign political figures. The "outing" of right-wing Republican Weller, the son-in-law of Rios Montt and champion of Guatemala's oligarchy, as a predator, is no coincidence. It is meant to shine a light on this old blackmail network during a time when Goss' name and those of jailed Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham, Kyle "Dusty" Foggo, Brant "Nine Fingers" Bassett, and ADCS contractor Brent Wilkes have arisen again during a House Intelligence Committee investigation of Shirlington Limousine and the transport of young prostitutes of both sexes to "poker parties" at the Watergate and Westin Hotels in Washington, DC. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Peter Hoesktra, Goss's replacement, seems more interested in covering up this scandal than in discovering the truth.

For more on John Bolton, I direct you back to Aangirfan: The psychopathic gangsters who run society, January 2009.

Let's have that top story again now. This time I will leave some space so you can read between the lines.


The visit, the Vatican said,

has highlighted the good relations

between church and state in Guatemala

and the particular contribution

that the Catholic Church offers

for the development of that Central American country.

Yes, whatever that means.

Stunning, AP! Literally.

The particular contribution the Catholic Church brings to the bargaining table of world control is, first and foremost, its grip on the minds of its 'followers'. This allows the horrendous exploitation to continue generation after generation and so fills the coffers of those that need this control and 'subjects' for their experiments. "It just business, you understand"!

What else can it be when you have no conscience, no feelings for people?

There are some good sites about killer coke in Colombia also, same thing different place.

Miurder it is the real thing!
I am happy to report I have not drank any kind of soda for at least six to eight years.

http://killercoke.org/

"[Terry] Collingsworth managed to move the showdown, legally speaking, to the United States, allowing Colombians to sue Coca-Cola in the U.S. for crimes committed elsewhere. The cases that were filed against Coca-Cola included such items as murder, abduction, kidnapping and torture. The Coca-Cola Case makes it clear that while these crusaders are making headway, it's still very difficult for Coke drinkers in first-world countries to grasp the level of violence and corruption involved in labour disputes elsewhere. Kids at the University of Chicago are shown parading stupid signs ('F--- Human Rights') when Ray Rogers comes to speak, because they don't want anything to stop their freedom to drink Coca-Cola. It's a different story after they've heard Rogers talk, maybe, but it's sadly obvious that the plight of Coca-Cola workers in faraway places is not uppermost in the minds of most North Americans."

It really is just business, and the catholic church, though not alone is one big conglomerate, with it's brain washed 'consumers' willing to 'buy', tithe for the product the church sells'redemption'

I think, I said it somewhere, this abuse of children in the churches, all of them, is not the anomoly it is the norm, the structure of the church makes it possible.
People have to get over their denial mode.

A. Peasant said...

yes they do. the most important question however, is why now? why all of a sudden is it time to expose this corruption that has been going on for so long? what kind of distraction have we got here? a huge one. why?

malcontent said...

Perhaps because the covers are coming off the business of empire as well.

http://collateralmurder.com/

As you point out, lots of powerful people know about all of this treachery yet the minds and bodies that fuel this economic juggernaut continue to self-censor the bloody business details of globalization and hegemony.

Invading American Zombie Screen Time with 38 minutes of actual War on Terror, raw and uncut, short circuits the mind's ability to ignore, ignore, ignore.

The Vatican is simply lower on the pecking order today and still has plenty of skeletons to hide.

I agree. The last time the Vatican was taking a pounding for it's pedophlia was late 2002, early 2003.

Next thing you know, us short attention spanned Americans are cheering lustily at the rockets red glare and smart bombs bursting in the air over Baghdad.

If these stories just came to light, that's one thing, but I get the feeling that some of this stuff has been sat on, waiting for the proper time.

Dublin Mick said...

Nothing happens by accident. It could be that there is such a hue and a cry worldwide over the pedophilia, too many voices being raised that it was decided to focus on this rather than invasion of Iran which will shut down most economies within a month.

The media itself as corrupt as it is does at times try and present itself as credible as far as scandals go. It can pick and choose which one. You can only go so far with pimping Tiger Woods and trying to showcase your in depth skills of investigation. We seen this before with O. J. Simpson and Scott Peterson. They go on and on about it forever while ignoring such minor events as federal reserve bank control.

Must be something big about to happen and the captivating the room temperature minds of the flock with some reality might be the best route of bait and switch. But you know who can say what the plan is. It all helps direct attention away from another 4.5 million homes set for repo in America and some thinking the dollar will collapse in July.

you know ap, been wondering that myself....I left a post over at nobody's regarding that, why now? why now?
Something is coming that will knock it out of the media glare and it will all be forgotten....

It's a small price for the CC to pay.

A. Peasant said...

i don't know pen. maybe it will play out that way, that's certainly one possibility. or it's to weaken the church for some other reason, to take away the moral authority of the church in preparation of another illegal war or something like that. so that whatever (organized) criticism might be forthcoming, it can be more easily brushed aside.

From Clifford Shack's blog-

"The other Jews call me a heretic. Well, I am. And worse, an iconoclast too: my goal is nothing less than the breaking of all religious containers (and not just Judaism) for the sake of liberating God. In the words of my 18th century namesake and predecessor, Yakov Leib Frank, 'All the faiths and conducts and the books that have been written till today -- everyone who reads in them is like someone who has turned his head backwards and is looking at things already dead. All of it comes from the Gate of Death. But the wise man's eyes are ever in his head so he must look towards He-Who-Walks-In-Front.' Like Frank and the other radical antinomian Kabbalists who came before him, I worship God and not religion; I seek for His salvation and not my own.....or, even less-so, yours."

-- Reb Yakov Leib HaKohain of Donmeh-West
