Any more questions? Socialist pope calls George Floyd a “good Samaritan,” praises Black Lives Matter riots


Editor note: In 2020, we saw a nationwide push to “defund the police”.  While we all stood here shaking our heads wondering if these people were serious… they cut billions of dollars in funding for police officers.  And as a result, crime has skyrocketed – all while the same politicians who said “you don’t need guns, the government will protect you” continued their attacks on both our police officers and our Second Amendment rights.

And that’s exactly why we’re launching this national crowdfunding campaign as part of our efforts to help “re-fund the police”.

The following contains editorial content which is the opinion of the writer, a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.

VATICAN CITY- Five years in prison for armed robbery…while putting a gun to the stomach of a pregnant woman; 10 months in jail for another firearm robbery; 30 days in prison for trespassing; two arrests for possession of cocaine resulting in 18 months in jail; another arrest for possession of cocaine resulting in 10 months in jail…but according to Pope Francis, this guy is a “Good Samaritan.”

Who are we talking about? Career criminal and drug addict George Floyd. Last week, Francis (sorry, refuse to call this leftist “Pope”) released a video message, National File reported, in which he advocated for left-wing politics, an attempt to further show the Catholic church is more on the side of social justice than not. He also advocated for violent Black Lives Matter extremists.

“Do you know what comes to mind now when, together with popular movements, I think of the Good Samaritan?” Francis said. “Do you know what comes to mind? The protests over the death of George Floyd.

It is clear that this type of reaction against social, racial, or macho injustice can be manipulated or exploited by political machinations or whatever, but the main thing is that, in that protest against this death, there was the Collective Samaritan who is no fool!”

Continuing, Francis said:

“This movement did not pass by on the other side of the road when it saw the injury to human dignity caused by an abuse of power,” he said. “The popular movements are not only social poets but also collective Samaritans.”

Francis then went on to touch on all the social justice warrior talking points, and repeatedly used the term “social justice.”

“In my experience, when people, men and women, have suffered injustice, inequality, abuse of power, deprivations, and xenophobia in their own flesh—in my experience, I can see that they understand much better what others are experiencing and are able to help them realistically to open up paths of hope.

How important it is that your voice be heard, represented in in all the places where decisions are made. Offer your voice in a collaborative spirit; speak with moral certainty of what must be done.”

“Abuse of power?” Is that like priests who sexually molest, say altar boys? Nuns maybe? A recent report which detailed decades of sexual abuse in the French Catholic Church was met with a tepid response from Francis, calling it a “moment of shame” and asking church leaders to make sure “similar tragedies” never occur again.

 According to CNN, the report found that Catholic clergy in France—only one country—had abused an estimated 216,000 minors over the past seven decades, noting the Catholic Church prioritized protection of the institution over survivors who were told to remain silent.

Considering others affiliated with the Church but who were not priests, such as those affiliated with Catholic schools and youth programs, the total soared to an estimated 330,000.

Two years ago, Francis admitted that priests were sexually abusing nuns, noting in one case they were in fact being kept as sex slaves, according to the BBC. This only came about after the Church’s global organization for nuns denounced the “culture of silence and secrecy” that prevented them from speaking out.

Instead of accepting the fact the Catholic church seems to have a problem with having sexual abusers as priests, he chose to blame society, saying the problem was emblematic of society “seeing women as second class.”

Francis is of course a socialist. He has come out as being anti-capitalism, and has supported Universal Basic Income, referring to it as an “unconditional lump sum payment to all citizens, which could be paid through the tax system,” the National Catholic Register reported.

Last year, Francis issued a 70-page letter entitled “Fratelli Tutti” in which he slammed capitalism and so-called “trickle down” economics, claiming neither works and advocated the redistribution of wealth, according to Newsmax.

Of course, Francis issued this edict from his home, “the opulent solid marble Vatican castle,” as Newsmax described it.

He also criticized what he called “empty individualism;” in other words, self-reliance and rugged individualism, tenets on which the United States became the greatest nation in the world. Of course the opposite of individualism is collectivism—otherwise known as communism.

Francis also advocated in the letter that nations need to do more to “integrate and accept migrants” from poorer countries. Apparently, Joe Biden does pay attention to “some” of what is taught in the Catholic Church.

This is of course rich. The Catholic Church is worth literally billions of dollars in assets such as real estate and other riches. Perhaps the Catholic Church should sell off some of its assets in order to help the poor in other countries.

Francis is also, of course, a climate change zealot.

“Never have we so hurt and mistreated our common home as we have in the last two hundred years,” he wrote, adding that we must change our day-to-day actions to live more sustainably. “Reducing greenhouse gases requires honesty, courage and responsibility. Those who will have to suffer the consequences…will not forget this failure of conscience and responsibility.”

In his remarks last week, he repeated his calls for universal basic income as well as a shorter workday.

“It is right to fight for a humane distribution of these resources, and it is up to governments to establish tax and redistribution schemes so that the wealth of one part of society is shared fairly, but without imposing an unbearable burden especially upon the middle class,” Francis said, according to America Magazine.

Spoken like a true socialist.

For more on Francis’ socialist leanings, we invite you to read our piece from late last year where he came out in support of Joe Biden’s socialist “Build Back Better” agenda: 


The following article contains editorial content written by a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today. 

VATICAN CITY- Let’s get this out of the way right off the top. Pope Francis, head of the Roman Catholic Church is in our opinion a dangerous man. As much as Pope John Paul II was a pope for all people, we believe Francis is a far-left radical intent on destroying the United States’ economic system.

There are so many reasons honestly to distrust this man that it would take a week of articles to go through them all. So, in this case, we will address the most recent bit of disturbing news out of the Vatican.

The Pope likes Joe Biden’s “slogan,” “Build Back Better. Except it isn’t Biden’s slogan. The saying comes not from Biden but is right out of a far-left program called “The Great Reset,” which we reported on a few weeks back. We will revisit that reporting at the end of this article.

Francis thinks the slogan “build back better” is perfect, calling it in fact “quite striking” in describing what he calls “his” vision for the so-called great reset after the coronavirus pandemic is relegated to the annals of history.

“The theme of this year’s celebration is “Building Back Better: Toward a Disability-inclusive, Accessible and Sustainable post-COVID-19 World,” Francis wrote in a message. That message was derived for the International Day of Persons with Disabilities,” adding that he found “the expression ‘building back better’ quite striking.”

In an article Friday in the Italian Daily Corriere della Serra written by Gian Guido Vecchi, the Vatican specifically chose to translate the Italian title “Riconstruire Meglio” by using the exact words employed by Biden. Biden of course plagiarized that slogan from the World Economic Forum, which is proposing a plan which would destroy capitalism.

On Biden’s website, he described the theory behind “build back better” by saying “this is not time to build back to the way things were before, with the old economy’s structural weaknesses and inequalities still in place. This is the moment to imagine and build a new American economy for our families and the next generation.”

In other words, just like his running mate Kamala Harris suggested just days before they stole the election. It is time to ensure an “equality of outcomes” instead of an “equality of opportunity.” For a definition of that, look up communism.

Francis’ version of the “great reset” is pretty much chapter and verse with Biden’s which is chapter and verse with the World Economic Forum.

“We will be able to regenerate society and not return to so-called ‘normality,’ which is an ailing normality, indeed it waws ailing before the pandemic: the pandemic highlighted it!” he said, while adding that the old normality “was sick with injustice, inequality and environmental degradation.”

The head of the Catholic church in a recent op-ed in the New York Times suggested that this “is a moment to dream big, to rethink our priorities—what we value, what we want, what we seek—and to commit to act in our daily life on what we have dreamed of.”

“God asks us to dare to create something new,” he added. “We cannot return to the false securities of the political and economic systems we had before the crisis. We need economies that give to all access to the fruits of creation, to the basic needs of life: to land, lodging and labor.”

“We need to slow down, take stock and design better ways of living together on this earth,” he said.

Of course, the World Economic Forum at Davos thought Francis’ endorsement of its socialist takeover of the world was peachy keen, while acknowledging the similarities between their vision and the Pope’s.

In an article entitled “Here’s the pope’s prescription for resetting the global economy in response to COVID-19,” the World Economic Forum confirms the belief that Francis “put his stamp on efforts to shape what’s been termed a Great Reset of the global economy in response to the devastation of COVID-19.”

If all of this makes you question exactly whether or not the so-called “conspiracy theorists” might be on to something regarding the background of this pandemic, you’re probably not too far off. It seems to be all too perfect in playing into the hands of the oligarchs who operate behind the scenes.

“Pope Francis has issued a scathing indictment of neoliberalism,” the WEF said, “a philosophy espousing austerity, privatization, deregulation, unbridled markets and relatively weak labour laws.”

And here we thought he was just running the church.

The WEF also said that the pope had blamed “the ‘dogma’ of neoliberal economics for making us more vulnerable to COVID-19,” while calling further for “greater multilateral cooperation and a focus on human dignity.”

The article finishes:

“Neoliberalism’s free-market orthodoxy has been blamed for making health care systems and livelihoods especially vulnerable to the pandemic and has drawn a clearer line under the need for active government intervention.”

More government intervention. What could possibly go wrong?

Meanwhile, as promised here is an article from last month that gives more detail on “Build Back Better” and “The Great Reset.” It isn’t pretty. 


Have you seen Biden’s slogan, “Build Back Better?” Sound innocent enough, right? However, if you dig a little bit, it is a lot more onerous than it sounds.

Have you seen the willingness of a significant portion of the American people…around 50%…to accept without question restrictions placed on their personal liberty, regardless of the constitutional implications? We’ve said it for a while now…we are being played. This was information the American people should have known months ago. 

Have you heard about “The Great Reset?” It’s apparently been trending on Twitter. Breitbart News published a piece and every American who cares about the future of our country and our autonomy as a representative republic need to pay attention.


In short, the Great Reset is a plan to completely transform the world’s economy. If you have been at all suspicious about the unleashing of the coronavirus on the world, you have good reason to be. This plan would realistically implement a New World Order, make no mistake about it.

The plan is there would be no money, no private property, and certainly no democracy. This plan would implement a system whereby every key decision made would be decided by, as James Delingpole writing in Breitbart calls a “remote, unaccountable elite of ‘experts.’”

Lest you think these are the rantings of a lunatic or something along those lines, the World Economic Forum has an entire plan surrounding The Great Reset. In short, the plan is a communist’s dream.

In part, the agenda would “steer the market toward fairer outcomes.” Sound familiar? The week before the election, Sen. Kamala Harris, the could-be vice president proposed exactly that. Not equality of opportunity but equity of outcomes.

The first component of The Great Reset would require world governments to “improve coordination (for example, in tax, regulatory and fiscal policy), upgrade trade arrangements and create the conditions for a ‘stakeholder economy.’” All of this is of course due to the “reset” place on worldwide economies due to the pandemic.

The second component requires that investments (read taxes) would advance shared goals, such as equality and sustainability.

This would be to fund “ambitious economic stimulus plans.” This would include building “’green’ urban infrastructure and creating incentives for industries to improve their track record on environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics.”

Finally, the third component is to “harness the innovations of the Fourth Industrial Revolution to support the public good, especially by addressing health and social challenges.” [emphasis added] They propose to join forces such as has been done during the COVID outbreak to take such efforts and expand them to every sector.

They say “the pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world to create a healthier, more equitable [emphasis added], and more prosperous future. Yeah, sign us up!

As Delingpole states, some would accuse people talking about such a plot as being conspiracy theorists—however as noted above, with the World Economic Forum being transparent about the plan, as well as other public officials, they aren’t even hiding what their plans are.

As an example, they cite Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Trudeau actually publicly spoke of The Great Reset and the video went viral on Twitter. Trudeau extolled the coronavirus pandemic as an opportunity for a reset, quoting the World Economic Forum plans.

Oh, and he also used the term “Build Back Better.” Think that was an accident by Biden’s handlers? Apparently not so much.

Trudeau said:

“Building Back Better means giving support to the most vulnerable while maintaining our momentum on reaching the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the SDGs.

Canada is here to listen and to help. This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset [emphasis added].

This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to reimagine our economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change.”

Delingpole says that such “meaningless garbage” is something that might be expected from a far-left zealot like Justin Trudeau.

However Trudeau’s words actually do mean things: “Building Back Better”; “2030 Agenda”; “Sustainable Development and the SGGs”; and “reset” which are all, he says, buzzwords for a complete transformation of the world economy which would create…wait for it…a New World Order.

The slogan “Build Back Better” sounded like just a dumb little ditty that Biden came up with while eating Hot Pockets in his basement instead of campaigning like most real presidential candidates do. However, it is literally the slogan of the Great Reset.

Ever heard of Davos? You may have. There is a summit held their every year where all the rich people go to try to decide how they’re going to suppress the peasants.

The slogan “Build Back Better” was coined by a man named Klaus Schwab. Schwab, now in his eighties is a German who actually founded the World Economic Forum.  Delingpole says that it has been said that Davos is “where billionaires go to lecture millionaires how ordinary people live.”

Up until recently, Davos has been panned in the past as an event where the beautiful people with money to burn show up in “private jets and their limousines to expound on the importance of sustainability and saving the planet.” In other words, a bunch of hypocrites.

However, COVID presented an opportunity, just as it has given the ruling class in the United States, otherwise known as governors and mayors, to see exactly how far they can push their subjects before they break.

As we have seen, that appears to be for at least half the subjects pretty far. In fact, not only have they used fear to achieve compliance, but they have also made it so those who offer resistance are pilloried by the cowards who don’t.

Delingpole notes that COVID has given the “perfect pretext for the kind of coordinated globalist takeover” which heretofore would have been thought not possible.

Just look at what has happened just this week with Thanksgiving. Governors and mayors have ordered residents NOT to have Thanksgiving celebrations and are mandating restrictions within people’s OWN homes. And some people have zero problem with it.

We would venture to think that if this was 1773 in Boston, these people wouldn’t be participating in dumping tea into Boston Harbor.

Schwab has, in fact admitted that the world must “act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies”—in short, he says every industry must “be transformed…we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”

In fact, Schwab noted how it was possible to get people to “make radical changes to our lifestyles.” He even referred to it as a “silver lining of the pandemic.” He noted how “almost instantly, the crisis forced businesses and individuals to abandon practices long claimed to be essential, from frequent air travel to working in an office.”

The World Economic Forum, speaking “of the coming technocracy that would rule our lives: ‘Welcome to 2030. I own nothing, have no privacy, and life has never been better.’” And Biden’s slogan is just about getting our economy back where it was before coronavirus, right?

Delingpole notes the coronavirus has merely accelerated the drive toward the Great Reset. He had reported earlier on the fact that Schwab had actually written several books about the plan:

“His latest, called Covid-19: The Great Reset, makes no bones about the fact that the chaos of the Coronavirus pandemic represents the perfect opportunity to accelerate the entire world towards a ‘new normal.’

“At the timer of this writing (June 2020), the pandemic continues to worsen globally. Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal. The short response is never. Nothing will ever return to the ‘broken’ sense of normalcy that prevailed prior to the crisis because the coronavirus pandemic marks a fundamental inflection point in our global trajectory.

“Got that? As far as your new globalist overlords are concerned, you are NEVER going to get your old life back, however much you might wish it. Also, bel clear: this is being done for your own good because your old way of life was based on a ‘broken’ model.

“Such is the authors conviction that the new normal is what we need and should want, he scarcely bothers to pretend that Chinese coronavirus is anything other than a handy pretext.

“Unlike certain past epidemics, COVID-19 doesn’t pose a new existential threat.

“Schwab is clear in his book that coronavirus is not so much a crisis as an opportunity to be exploited—a chance to accelerate the birth of the New World Order he calls ‘The Fourth Industrial Revolution.’

“Radical changes of such consequence are coming that some pundits have referred to a ‘before coronavirus’ (BC) and ‘after coronavirus’ (AC) era. We will continue to be surprised by both the rapidity and unexpected nature of these changes—as they conflate with each other, they will provoke second-, third-, fourth- and more-order consequences, cascading effects and unforeseen outcomes.”

Think Biden using the term “Build Back Better” as his campaign slogan was an accident? Breitbart notes that conservatives in the UK feature the website on their Twitter page. Prime Minister Boris Johnson of the UK has inserted the phrase into his speeches.

Conspiracy theory? Not so much…they have told us EXACTLY what they’re planning to do.
