Hypocrisy abounds as Marxist pope mocks U.S. election

While discussing the U.S. presidential candidates with a gaggle of reporters aboard his private jet returning from a three-day visit to the to the former Soviet Republics of Georgia and Azerbaijan, Pope Francis cunningly replied to a question dealing with the problems both candidates might present for devout Catholics. He responded with these slippery words, “During political campaigns, I never say a word. The people are sovereign. I would only say, study the proposals well, pray and choose with your conscience.”

Then unable to restrain himself, claiming he wanted to talk about a “fictional situation,” Francis proceeded to insult the United States and our citizens.

“When in any country there are two, three or four candidates who don’t satisfy everyone, it means that perhaps the political life of that country has become too politicized and that it does not have much political culture,” he said.

“People say ‘I’m from this party’ or ‘I’m from that party,’ but effectively, they don’t have clear thoughts about the basics, about proposals,” he lectured.

Really? In Italy’s 2015 presidential election, members of the Electoral College representing seven major political parties voted on several dozen candidates. Only members of Parliament (Senators) and regional delegates are entitled to vote . Does Francis think they have a preferable “political culture?”  And what about the Italian citizens? Does it bother him that they have no say in their own governance? In his homeland of Argentina, “free direct elections” have not been the norm until recently. Many heads of state attained their post via Coup d’état.

This past February, while returning from a politically timed trip to the Mexican side of the U.S. / Mexican border, Francis opined that Donald Trump’s pledge to build a border wall to control the invasion of illegal foreign nationals into the United States exposed him as, “not Christian.” An odd assertion from a church leader who lives amid splendor inside a massive 50-foot-tall, ten-feet thick wall surrounding the fortress that is Vatican City.

“I am a pawn?’ he asked at the time. “Well, maybe, I don’t know. I’ll leave that up to your judgment and that of the people.“ He continued, “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the Gospel. As far as what you said about whether I would advise to vote or not to vote, I am not going to get involved in that. I say only that this man is not Christian if he has said things like that.”

Francis, who opted to visit with the Communist Castro brothers in Cuba prior to addressing Congress needs to stay out of U.S. politics. It is neither “fitting nor proper” to borrow a couple of words from Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.

The President of Italy has the ability to appoint Senators for Life. We know how well that concept works out here, with arrogant octogenarian John McCain unable to relinquish power as he runs for yet another 6-year term in his 80s. Today we present the most recent video briefing in the ongoing series “Never McCaintitled “Senate and Unity Concerns.”

    SRAZ is absolutely correct in labeling this pope a Marxist. He has repeatedly come out against Capitalism and fin favor of the Lenin, Marx Communist fundamental doctrine of redistribution of wealth.

    This article in Forbes Magazine lays it out very clearly. “Income Redistribution’s Logical Conclusion Is Communism.”

    Francis is responsible for the Catholic Church hemorrhaging members in the United States. Many of my relatives and boyhood friends I attended parochial (elementary thru high school) with have left. It’s impossible to be a Constitutional Conservative and buy into this Communist’s views. He’s not content to be the Pope leading the faithful of the church. He views himself as a global leftist political voice. He sure as hell doesn’t speak for me. I’m embarrassed whenever he opens his mouth.

    This is really shameful. He puts his pants on one leg at a time just like the rest of us.

    II will always be curious about the real reason the decent Pope Benedict was shuttled off and replaced with this despicable commie.
    It was the first time in over 600 years of church history that such a swift removal has occurred. Pope Benedict lived through the horrors of Nazism and would never have acted in the manner of Francis. The reason given at the time of his removal was ill health. Since there are never young popes, they all suffer from the ravages of old age to one degree or another. He is still alive, making me wonder how desperately ill he actually was. There much more going on and it sickens me that commie Francis speaks as head of the Catholic Church. He sure doesn’t speak for me!
