Pope Francis and Angela Merkel: Enemies of European Civilization
Pushing the Global Warming Scam
Two of Europe’s greatest contemporary enemies recently got together to compare notes and discuss how they were going to further undermine and destabilize what remains of the Continent’s civilization. Pope Francis and German Chancellor Angela Merkel met on June 17, in the Vatican’s Apostolic Palace to discuss the issues which will be raised at a Group of 20 summit meeting in Hamburg, from July 7-8.

The Vatican said that Frau Merkel and the Pope discussed “the need for the international community to combat poverty, hunger, terrorism and climate change.”* Ms. Merkel, in an obvious swipe at US President Donald Trump, said that “we are a world in which we want to work multilaterally, a world in which we don’t want to build walls but bring down walls.” The reference to “walls,” of course, was to President Trump’s promise to construct a wall on the Mexican-American border. The pope, too, has been critical of Mr. Trump’s proposed plan.
Ms. Merkel also lamented about the Trump Administration’s decision to opt out of the 2015 Paris climate accord. Pope Francis urged President Trump to remain in the accord and gave him a copy of his encyclical, “Praise Be,” when they met earlier this spring. The encyclical elevated “climate change” and protection of the environment as “moral obligations” while it criticized “perverse” economic development models that “enrich the wealthy at the expense of the poor.”
The above was the main effect of Trump ditching the Paris accord. The agreement would have had almost no effect on the climate, but it certainly would have affected the pocketbooks of assorted cronies. Alternative energy subsidies, grants for climate research, foreign aid tied to climate goals, countless global conferences various bureaucrats, scientists and hangers-on just have to go to every year, “carbon credits”, etc., etc., constitute the biggest gravy train apart from the war racket. It’s definitely enough money to cry over…
As has been the case since the Second Vatican Anti-Council (1962-65), popes have spent most of their time on secular concerns in which they have little competency and less on matters of the Faith. Pope Francis has taken this to a new level and rarely preaches on doctrine.
This, in one sense, is good because when he does speak on religion, he usually spouts out some heresy or falsehood which scandalizes the Church. His many blasphemies and heresies, plus the fact that he was never ordained as a priest in the traditional Catholic rite or traditionally consecrated as a bishop (neither was Benedict XVI), makes him ineligible to be a true Catholic pope.
The latest fraud that these two cretins are now pushing is the supposed threat of global warming. The idea that “climate change” has had some nefarious effect on the environment has long ago been debunked by legitimate scientists and scholars. Climate change is a ruse used by global elites to further tax, regulate and enslave humanity.
Global temperatures over the past 10,000 years. “Climate change” is pretty much the greatest non-problem of all time. Apocalyptic predictions about human-caused climate change are of course nothing new. In fact, the dire warnings and dark mutterings started in the 19th century already (at the time mainly as a way to sell newspapers) – click to enlarge.
A simple illustration of why climate accords focused on CO2 reductions make no sense whatsoever. As an aside, the Paris accord would at most generate a barely perceptible effect on the climate (well within the margin of error, so let’s call it zero effect) – but it would redistribute trillions in taxpayer funds. The main reason for the howling and gnashing of teeth following Trump’s wise decision to ditch this abomination is that vast hordes of cronies will be cut off from the public trough. They were counting on being showered by subsidies left and right and that is probably not going to happen now.
Facts and sound theory, however, do not bother the collectivist minds of Pope Francis and Angela Merkel. What they are interested in is power and control and they intend to keep it through lies like global warming and by coercive massive migration which will fundamentally alter Europe’s demographics to their New World Order masters’ advantage.
Had it not been for the likes of Pope Francis and Ms. Merkel, it is unlikely that Europe would be under a deluge of mostly Mohammedan “asylum seekers.” The claim that the invasion was “spontaneous” due to the turmoil in the Middle East from US and Western nation-states military intervention is implausible. The region has been unstable for decades. Why all of a sudden is there a mass exodus and why it is mostly of young single Muslim men?
Unemployment rates of immigrants in Germany as of 2013 (i.e., before the recent migration wave hit). Why don’t we have a more recent chart? Good question – try to fínd one! What this dated chart tells us though is that Middle Eastern immigrants in particular fail to be integrated into the labor force. Only 1 in 10,000 of the migrants arriving in 2015 had a job one year later – that’s an unemployment rate of more than 99%. And the statistics above do not tell us that the bulk of jobless asylum seekers are actually hidden from the statistics by means of being registered in language courses or other training courses paid for by the government. These people are not counted as unemployed, although they are in fact unemployed. Happily we did find a recent chart that shows the discrepancy that trick creates in the statistics (see further below) – click to enlarge.
While the outlook for Europeans may currently appear grim, it is not hopeless. While Pope Francis and Angela Merkel cannot at present be deposed for their crimes, they can be defeated in the court of public opinion. For Europe to become once again the center of human civilization, the ideals of multiculturalism and the fraud of global warming must be slain on ideological grounds.
Compare the number of non-European asylum seekers in Germany searching for a job to those officially registered as unemployed. There are lies, damned lies and statistics. The point being that these are welfare consumers – and are likely to remain so for many years. A study in Switzerland last year found that nearly all immigrants from Afghanistan and Somalia living in the country were still jobless and on welfare seven years after arriving – click to enlarge.
This is the duty that confronts those that seek a return of Europe’s previous glories. While the task appears monumental, it must be remembered that the pagan Roman Empire was eventually converted by the teaching of twelve men and one indomitable former Pharisee from Tarsus.
